WE MET BUT ONCE. '"W'e met but once," long years ago, But never since that hour, In dreams of bliss or thrall of woe, Thy voice hath lost; its power. As shells when reft from ocean depths Wail with unceasing moan. My heart reechoes but. the tones That love hath made its own. "We met but once;" calm was the eve; The stars that glemmed the sky Smiled in the waves that 'neath them heaved As bright as those on high. So'glossed within my answering heart Thy image softly gleams. I bless woe's night, that shrouds the day As brighter than it teams. FLOATING FANOIES, The man who digs one hundred feet into the ground for water gets along well. The decline in eggs is attributed to the fact that the hens are shelling out more freely. "One Lung" is the consumptive-reminding name of a Chinese laundryman on a Brook lyn street. He couldn't raise the mortgage on his building lot, and so, poor man, without be coming blind, he lost his site. A bank is a bad place for delicate young clerks and bald-hea...

Pithy Sayings and Extracts From the Works of Thomas Carlyle. Fair day's wages fora fair day's work! Alas! in what corner of this planet, since Adam awoke on it, was that ever realized ! The day's wages of John Milton's day's work called "Paradise Lost," and other poems, were ten pounds, paid by installments, and a close escape from death on the gallows. % Will the whole financial ministers, uphol sterers, and confectioners of modern Europe undertake, in joint-stock company, to make one shoe-black happy, above an hour or two? For the shoe-black has a soul quite other than his stomach and would require God's infinite universe altogether to himself. Try him with half a universe, of an Omnipotence, he sets to quarreling with the proprietor of the other half. For empire or individuals there is but one class of men to tremble at, and that is the Stupid class, the class that cannot see, who, alas, are mainly those who will not see. Even gossip springing free and cheery from a human heart, ...

'To thei River Press: SUN RIVER, M. T., March 19, 1881. I am a civil man, try not to hurt anybody, hardly ever get mad, don't aim to do any body an injury or do them injustice, yet I have felt very much iike getting mad for the past week, not only have I felt like getting mad but I have felt like chawing somebody up. I have seen myself placarded in several places, called a liar, a coward and other like names. It hes been a hard trial for me to keep from doing great harm to somebody, but I will have to bear it all. I am not such a big man but I am a bad one when I get started for the good of the public. I hope they won't get me started. We have had another shooting affair here. This time it was two soldiers. The one who got killed was attempting to desert and the soldier who shot him was simply discharging his duty. Of course there is a difference of opinion about it, but the facts as they aevel ope show that the soldier shot in self defense. The affair occurred close to the residenc...

The alien waters rolled Their weltering weight tumultuous; but 'tis told, The pilot swerved not 'mid the desperate roar, Till, larded safe his tottering burden, sore lie trembled, lost in reverence, to behold.

SILENCE. O1 t at the silent, shadowy close of day, When the hush'd grove has sung its parting lay, When pensive twilight in her dusky car, Comes slowly on to meet the evening star. Above, below, aerial murmurs swell From hanging wood, brown heath and bushy dell. A thousand nameless ri"s, th .t shun the light, Stealing soft music on the ear of night; So ott the finer movements of the soul That shun the sphere of pleasure's gay control. In the still shades of calm seclusion rise, And breathe their sweet seraphic harmonies. 0L D AND NEW RUSSIA.

THE METTERNICH MEMOIRS, A Brilliant Review of Napoleon's Most Able Adversary and a Comparison with Bismarck and Cavour. [From the American.] We confess frankly to a great liking for Prince Clement von Metternich, who it is so fashionable to denounce and ridicule. Peo ple of the present day, and notably believers in Republican ideas, can have little sympathy with the absolutism of which he is the ablest champion; but it is impossible not to admire the consistency, integrity and ability of the man, and his place in history as the foremost representative of Europe in its death struggle with Napoleon is assured. There were few cooler and more accurate observers of that most fascinating of games,politics;'and it may be doubted whether there ever lived a prophet whose predictions were more frequently and strikingly verified by long subsequent events. Even where he was wrong in his apprecia tions the result was one which at some ear lier period he had foreseen. It is the custom to regard h...

An Unprofitable Wager. Petty tradesmen, servant maids, retailers, beer and tobacco money-changers, and other such "small deer" in the venerable city of Prague, have of late been greatly exercised by an odd wager, contracted between two of their wealthier fellow-citizens, one of whom, a few weeks ago, laid the other 1,500 florins that, by the first of January, 1882, he would collect the sum of 28 florins, Austrian cur rency, in one-kreuzer pieces bearing the date 1873. It seems that, owing to some unex plained accident, only 30 florins' worth of these coins-the individual value of which is a trifle less than that of the British farthing was issued from the Imperial Mint. The 3,000 kreuzers are, in all probability, scatter ed about throughout the length and breadth of the gigantic Austrian Empire; and it can hardly be but that some of them have been lost during the seven years that have elapsed since they first came into circulation. Thus, the enterprising gentleman who has bound hims...

THE LAST STRUGGLE. I daw a ghastly spectacle last night. On the gray edge of dawn, where stars had set, Old Age and Death like bitter sworn foes met, And, hand to hand, fought out the dreadful fight, Death, clothed in all his majesty and might, Stood, awful in his silent strength, and let His foe (who, long since done with pleasure, yet Clung to the poor prize, Life) in frenzied fright Beat on his armored breast and thrust him back With corded hands, whose shriveled finger-tips He gave such pressure that he left them black; Then, stooping down, he touched with his cold lips Eyes that first rolled, then stared, then set in rage, And Death, the victor, smiled o'er vanquished Age.

PERSONAL AND IMPERSONAL, Senator Mahone is said to be the possesror of $2,000,000. There are 10,000 opium eaters in St. Louis and 15,000 in Chicago. Mr. J. Stanley Brown has been appointed private secretary to President Garfield. Bayard believed that the Democrats were justified in their attitude of the past ten days by law and reason. The colored citizens decorated Mahone's desk with a floral anchor inscribed with con gratulatory sentiments. Bradlaugh does not intend to resign his seat in the British Parliament. So Gladstone stated in the House of Commons Monday night. New York has, according to the United States census of 1880, 1,206,577 inhabitants, of whom 590,762 are males and 615,815 fe males.

CRADLE HYMN. Hush, my dear- lie still and slumber, Holy angels guard thy bed! Heavenly blessings without number, Fall upon thy little head; How much better thou'rt attended, Than the Son of God could be, When from heaven he descended To become a child like thee! Soft and easy is thy cradle, Cold and hard thy Savior lay, When his birthplace was a stable, And his softest bed was hay, Was there nothing but a manger His own kindred could afford To receive the heavenly stranger. Could they thus affront the Lord ? Soft, my child,-I did not chide thee, Though my song might sound too hard, 'Tis thy mother sits beside thee, And her arm shall be thy guard. Yet to read the shameful story, How the Jews abused their King, How they served the Lord of Glory, Makes me angry while I sing. Mayst thou live to know and fear him, Trust and love him all thy days, Then go dwell forever near him, See his face and sing his praise ! I could give thee thousand kisses ! Hoping what I most desire; Not a mother'...

BLIGHTED AFFECTION. An Attractive Young Choir singer's Charges-Sh Brinugs Suit for $5,000 Damages Against the Son of a Dea con for Breach of Promise of Marriage. West Hurley is a lively little village on the Ulster and Delaware Railway a few miles northwest of New York. Catskill visitors wil remember it as the little station where "pas sengers for the Overlook Mountain pass right through the station for the stages." The vil lage contains two or three churches. Among these is a Methodist church with a large and active membership, an energetic preach r and a fine choir. Mary E. Townsend is the lead ing alto singer and an attractive, prepossess ing young lady. She is a member of the church and moves in the best society of the village. She was formerly a school teacher there and is now about 22 years of age. A year or two ago her many attractions led to an intimacy between herself and one Henry Johnson, a village carriage-maker and a son of one of the church deacons. Things went along i...

A NEW CITY IN BARKER. An Interesting Exposition of the Mines and Prospects. M.CAGHIER CITY, BARKER DiSTRaorI, April 7th, 1881. 1 To the River Press. Since the first week in March up to date the weather has been all that could be desired. The days have been warm and sunny which have lessened the depth of snow from 5 feet to less than 1 foot on the level, while the south side of the mountain on Dry Fork is bare from base to summit. Prospecting has already commenced on these bare spots and it is safe to predict that another week of this weather will give a large area to the eager prospector. From the healing of this letter you will notice that a new city (Meagher) has been added to the Barker Dittrict. At a meeting held by the miners a week ago it was agreed to consolidate the two cities of Galena and Leadville into one and give it the name of Meagher City. John Fagg was elected Re corder and has already made a plat of the new city, and lots are open for recording. The lots that were l...
