was as brick as a ballad. • Very ghind he

and in a great hurry he seemsto e, like!

IWe have called him a foreigner and a

Ileent :distances, and even l i the thought is
litikathless that only goes' to the neigh
flbors, and flies to the starry cotttwe whose
lsmall lights twinkle in the outskirts of
'our hantletS. Who knoWS but' he has
i seen the lost Pleiaa in his -wanderings;
has met Orion ia armor in his way; has
counted the jewels in the sword hilt of
Perseus ? Perhaps he has fluttered the
hair'of Berenice, or paused at the North
ern. Crown, or heard the Harp of Heav
en, as he passed, or bearded the Lion in
his starry den. .Aldebrand may -have
glared at the Stranger; the river PO, that
flows through the fields of the Test, per
haps he forded . dry-.4h0d. ,- A pilgrim to
the Southern. Cross, he may hake played
St. George to the Dragon,' distanced Pe
gasus and, paid court to. Andromeda.—
Did Arcturus, delay him, or the Bear in
titnidate, or Sirius turn. him aside ? Did I
he dash alma(' among the' Nebulm, those
morning clouds of creation, those visible'
breaths of Deity ? Did he solve the mys
tery of Cassiopeia and linger around the .
ruins of the brilliant world that went outs
like -a taper three hundred years ago?
The lab;atory of God, is somewhere;
did he pasS it, when the doors were ajar?
There is a sinless.world among the stars;
did they sea the Comet in their offing?
And our guest himself; is he 11 solid
globe, making a mighty
,wake of light,
and glowing like a furnace, or is it a mag
nificent Will o' the Wisp floating about
the Universe? What if it should be an
abnudoned world, drifted from its moor
ings, dismantled and lost,..and wandering
like a slip iu a winter sea? Or a wild
outlaw madly plunging from system to
system, and making terrific descents up
on peaceful planets, scattering confusion :
and death ?
If this hist should be, and the Aste
r are indeed the sparkling mini of
!some pleasant world destroyed by such a
I I visitant, and the route .of 'the Comet
!across the ! path of earth' has been truly
!divined, and our small craft should be
! just there as it dashes into our unfenced
highway—what then ? If a huge globe
lof granite and red sand-stone, why, there
might be more Asteroids in our solar cir
and fragments; like the pieces of a
; mirror shivered by a 'blow, might each
reflect the sun, and :move in orbits of its
I own. If such a thing could be, and hu
man life remain, how wilder than a dream
and sadder than a death. The child
playing in the garden among the flowers,
the mother stretching forth her hands in
!vain—the garden and the homestead in
two worlds. The wife just parted fronf
i her husband, might be' divorced by a
I broad abyss of empty, unnavigable
I The daughter of some house and heart,
who went with blessings from the slid
i!tering roof, would - ne'er- return. The

the rain should fall, a narrow ribbon of
green Spring be ivoven, and the cloudy

!where, alas ! upon one atom of the world
alone, Juan Fernandez in the sailless sea,
a soul might dwell whose story no De Foe
should ever write.
' Aud such a thing might be ; that this;
bold comet should entice away a simple!
satellite,, to wander in its train, should!
hasten it beyond 'the lead and line of tel-!

heard the other day a good story of his

the. host and his flunkeys as an Ordinary
traveller. - The next morning - one.of the
latter came, to Mr. Sum ner's room in
some excitement, and said : "Lord
Brougham is down stairs, sir, asking for
you." - To the waiters ;:runinent, Mr.
S. quietly said,l Without, exAbiting - the
least.surprise—", Very well; , show 'him
up. . Not long ! afterwards, the former
came, still more excited: Sir,. the Lord
Chief Justice has called,- hndllie asks for
yoit!" "Show him up,'" u;m again the
cool reply. After his lordship I:ad de
parted, the waiter once more,' belyildered
and a little o.!:!•gravated: " Sir, Sir, the
