ITS GREEN STATE
. "I, liked the turn the conversation had
taken, for I had some things' . I wanted tc,
and so, Sit r waiting,' a minute, I be
gan again. -1 don't think the. poems- I
read you sometimes can be fairly appreci

"—You (I,u't isnce.i...wh:it I mean by
the r revz state? Well, 'l,Len, I will tell
you. Certain things are goad fur noth
-!ing until they have beta kept a long
.;tile; and some are good fornothing un
til they have been long kept and used.
Of the first, wine is the illustrious and
immortal example. Of those which must.
- be kept and used I will name three,—
' meenehautu pipes, violins ,and poems.
The meerschaum is but a poor affair un
til it has burned a thousand offiringS fo
the cloud-compelling deities. ' It comes
to us without esnuplexion or flacor,—born
of the sea-foam, like Aphrodite, but col
o-rless as pallida Mors herself. The fire
is lighted in its, central shrine, and grad-
ually the juices which the broad leaves of
the Great Vegetable had sucked up from
en acre and curdled into a dractn, arc
diffused through its thirsting pores. First
a discoloration, then a stain, and at last a
rich, glowing, umber tint spreading over
the whole surface. Nature true to her
old brown autumnal bite, you see,—as
trite in the fire of the meerschaum as in
the sunshine of October ! And then the
cumulative wealth of its fragrant remi
niscences! he who inhales its vapors
takes a thousand whiffs iu a single breath ;
and one cannot touch it without awaken
ing the old joys that hang around it, as
the smell of flowers clings to the dresse4
of the daughters of the house of Farina 1
[" Don't think I use a meerschaum my
self, for Itlo not, though-I have owned a
calumet since my childhood, which from
a naked Pict (of the Mohawk species)

for the lot with a bullet-mark ou his right

the loveliest silver-mounted tobacco-stop- -
per you ever saw. It is a little box-wood
Triton, carved with charming liveliness
and truth; I have often compared it to a
figure in Raphael's 'Triumph of Galatea.'
It came to me in an ancient shagreen
case,—how old it is I do not know,—but
it must have been made since Sir Walter
Raleigh's time. If you are curious, you
shall sec it any day. Neither will I pre

OLD VIOLINS AND OLD POEMS-A SIMILE

the divine Stradurius ! Pla,yed on by an
cient arutestros until the bo►w-hand lan its

love, and cry his inariieulate longings,

with which its tones were blended; and
back again to origies in 'which
to howl and. laugh as if a legion of deAils
were shut np in it ; then again to the gen
tle dilettante who' calmed it down with
easy melodies until it answered him softly
as in the days of the old niae.4eos. • And
so given into our panda, its pores all full
of music; stained, like the meerschaum,
through and through, with the conceti-
Crated Imo and sweetness of all the har
monies that have kinciled and faded on its
Now I tell you a poem must be kept
and used, like a meerschaum, or a violin.
A poem is just asporous as the umerchaum ;
—the more porous it -is, the better. 1
mean to say that a genuine poem is capa
ble of absorbing an indefinite amount
the essence of our own humanity,—its
tenderness, its. heroism, its re. , rets, its as
piratious, so as to be gradually stained
throuzih with a divine secondary color dc
rived from ourselves. So you see it mu..
take time to bring the sentiment of a
poem into harmony vri:h our nature, by
staining-ourselves through every thought
and image our being can penetrate. •
" Then 110.i:in-as to the mere of
new poem ; why, who can expect anything
more from that than from the music of a
violin fresh from the maker's hands? Now
you know very well that there are no Ikss
than fifty-eight differentpieces in a violin.
These pieces are starorers to each other,
and it takes a century. more or less, to
make them. thoroughly acquainted. At
last they learn to vibrate in harmony, and
Ithe instrument becomes an ormaic whole,
as if it were a great seed-capsule that had
grown from a garden-bed in the Cremonla,
or elsewhere. Besides, the wood is jury
and full of sap for fifty years or so, but at
the end of fifty or a hundred more gets
tolerably dry and comparatively resonant.
" Don't you see that all this is just as
true of a. poem P Counting each word as
a piece, there are more pieces in an aver
age copy of verses than in a violin. The
poet has forced all these words together,
and fastened them, and - they don't under
stand it at first. But let the poem be re
peated aloud and murmured over iu the
mind's muffled whisper often enough, and
at length the parts become knit together
in such absolute solidarity that you could
not change 'a syllable without the. whole
world's crying out against you for med
dling with the harmonious fabric. Ob
serve, too, how the drying, process takes
_place iu the stufFof a poem just as in flirt.
of a violin. Ilere is a Tyrolese fiddle that
is just coming to its hundredth birthday,
(Pedro KlauSs, Tyroli, fceit, 1760,)
the sap is pretty well out of it: And here
is the song of an old poet whom Netera
"Nox erat, et mato fulgelaat Luna sereno
Cum tu magnorum, numea kesura deorum
In verbajurabas mea.'
Don't you perceive the sonorousness of
these old dead Latiu phrases? Now I
tell you that every word fresh- from the
dictionary brings with it a certain succu
lence; -and though. I cannot expect the
sheets of the " Pafetolian," in 'which; as I
told you, I sometimes Print my verses, to
get so dry as the crisp papyrus-that held
those words of Horatitts Flaccus,,yet you
may be sure, that, - while the - sheets are
damp, and while the lines hold their sap,
you can't. fairly judge of my performances,
and that, if made of the true stuff, they
will ring better after a while."

Lave lia a Printing Office.
I once herd an- old jour remark, that
a printing dike was no- place for love
making, audi I have since experienced the
truth of obs-vation-r—beinn . now perfectly
convinced t'le, flower of l ave can never
bloom in the Midst of type stands and
printing ink ; .
It was 'ut fortune to sojourn for a few
days in. the :ity of B. Directly opposite
the office wit a iiretty white cottage, with
arose buslil ! claibering round the case
ment, and I wa s
. :iot. lung in making the
diScovery that the aforesaid white cottage
with rose-shade window, contained:a fair
female, a iloWer whose beauty. far outshone
the roses that eluStOcil round the winthiw.
She was a little, blue-eyed saucy looking
creature of sixteen summers, and was the
belle of the city. Her name Was Lattra,
sweet poetic ILaWra.: .
I have a ;poetic ,passiou for the naiv e
of Laura. i
It wus. a beautiful Summer morning,
I r.Ased tnY wihdtiw to admit the Coot
breeze from 'the flutier decked fields, and
,t,was not lung befOre I perceived the Got
cage window .was hoisted also, and that
:weet little Laura Was seated near it,
ly engaged with . .her needle. I wOrkel
but little thht morning.. My eyes were
constaptly Watideritig towards the cottage
window where little. Laura sat, and ;all
4orts of strange:lnd fantastic notions danced
thronghnny'liglited: brain, and I began to
think that I.felt a 'slight touch of what
the poet calls love; sliding in at the eor
nor of my heart.
A few days past away and chance made
sue acquainted with Laura. • Heavens !
she was a sweet creature—she had a Orin
that would 'have shamed the Venus' de
3lcdiei—a 'cheek 'that out-blushed the
richest pcadh, and a lip that would have
tempted a lee froth his hive ou a frdsty
morning, I:thought as I gazed ou her iu
Mute admiration, that-Limd never seen so
fair a creature. She seemed the embodi
ment of all that is lovely and bewitching.
Well, thne passed on, and once Laura
expressed a desire to visit the printing
office. Gad, thought I, what a chance :
I'll do it there—yea, there, in the midst
of the implements 'of my art—the press
and the'reller—the' ink and stands, and
the boxes of the tl , B, C's. • 1 took au
opportunity to snatch her lily white hand,
and she dreg it back, knocking a stick of
matter into pi ! •
." I must lave a kiss for that, my pretty
one," said I, and at it I went. I managed
to twist my arm around her waist, and. in ,
her strugglihg to free herself she upset a
galley of 'edttOrial, a long article - on the
Kansas pestiOn. Nothing daunted, - I
made at her art-aim This time I' was
more successful; for I obtained a kiss.
By St. Pauli it was a sweet one, and the
little witch bore it like a martyr—she nev
er streamedjbut once; but as I raised my
lips she Iraised - her delicate little hand
and gave . me a box on the ears that made
me see more stark than was ever viewed
by Herschell through his big telescope.
Somewhat nettled and my cheek smarting
with pain, I again seized her waist and
" Well if you don't like iit, just take
hack the kiSs."
She made a desperate struggle, and as
she jerked herself from my arms, her foot!
struck the lye pot and over it went !
Another galley of editorial was sprinkled
over the 11°4, and in her efforts to reach
the door her foot slipped and she fell, and
in her effmtl to sustain herself, her hand,
her lilly white hand'—the same little hand
that had 011ie. over my face—oh, horrible
—was snick up to the elbow in the ink
keg. Shade of Frahklin ! what a change
came over the beauty of that hand 1 She
slowly drew' it from the keg, dripping
with ink, and asked me What use I made
of that tar, I began to be seriously
alarmed, Ond apologized in the best man
'tier I could, and to My surprise She seemed
more pleaSed than' angry—but there was
a ‘• lurking devil in:her eye!' that told me
that there was mischief adoat. As I stood

,ANSWERING LETTERS.—There are few
things so much neglected in the so-calla
polite world as ahsweriug letters. This
arises from- an indifference in Borne pea;
pie, and a dislike to writing in others.
The latter feeling- is' often . so triuch in,
dulged in; or, ratheri' is allowed to.infiu- - •
ence the possessor to. such an extent that
a letter requiring an answer will be left
for days and - weeks, a constant. and -ever
recurring. source of annoyance and re-'
firma, on account of the unpleasaht re
inindinns it gives from dine to time of the - '
neglect it meets witb. This repug,ttance': - :
to' writing might soon be overcome,- - by=
observing the following rule :—lt-is
.ply to answer a letter at the very first op- ‘,
portunity that offers; if looked upon'as a.
disagreeable task, the sooner it is got rid,:
of the better; but its advantage would not ;
rest here, fur this practiee, if resolutely 2
pars:red, would break' down Alre -barrier,
and tire difficulty would vanish.'
