THE NIWYFARSWFLCOME Ring, bells, ring! for the K ng is here; Ring, bells, ring! for the glad New Year. He mounts bis throne with a smiling face, His scepter lifts with majestic gra e. Ring for the joy his advent brings; Ring for the happy songs he sings; Ring for the promises sweet and true With which we gladden our hearts anew. The new-born Year is a happy follow, His voice is sweet, and low, and mellow, With the Christmas holly his head is crowned, With the Christmas hies ings we’ll wrap him round. Then ring, bells ring! for ths joyous day— The Past lies silent, the Present is gay; Ring out your merriest, cheer after cheer, To welcome the birth of the Happy New Year! —Mary D. Brine. A NEW-YEAR’S GHOST. The wind races wildly through the town, making a weird, moaning sound in desolate places near the coast, where great, dark rocks cast their uncanny shadows, and around the village gables. The few stars which glimmer between the heavy clouds look pale and shivering, but the village w...

A PICTURESQUE PAGEANT. AM ODD CXKDMOVT XV TVS CAPITAL or SIAM. Hiatnese Nobtes Drinking'the “Water of Allcemnc*” —Vlapnlllcent Oriental Procession to the Palace. The assembling of the Siamese nobles at the palace this morning to “ drink the water of allegiance ” was by far the most picturesque of the many pageants that we have witnessed since our arrival, says a letter from the capital of Siam to the New York Times. Nor is the palace itself a stage in any way unworthy of such distinguished actors. Bankok, like Moscow, contains two smaller enclosures representing the successive stages of its earlier history. The “city proper ’’of the Siamese metropolis, surrounded by a wall of its own, corresponds to the “Gorodskaya Tchast,” or town quarter of the ancient Russian capital, while within it, like-a Siamese kremlin, the countless buildings of the first king’s palace (almost a city in itself) cluster behind the massive white battlements of their encircling rampart. Scarcely have we seated...

THE BALLAD OF GOOD SIR URGAN. Oh. bine are the hills of Faeryland And green the meadows be, And reedy many a river's strand, And stntelv every forest tree. And all the bridle bells do ring, As knights come riding, two and two Aneath the w od; and, tike a king, Sir Urgau rides in armor blue. And !o! ns down the wood they rode, The lake beyond just gleams in sight A wrinked crone bem ath a lea l Bewails her bones in sorry plight. “Good mother, be of bettor cheer; Give me your h ad,” quoth Urgan; “so— Your fagots on my erupt er here Will ease you in the path you go." Then straightway all the knights, with jeer, And laugh, and jest, upon him turn’d; Yet all the kinglier was his cheer. Though just a whit his forehead burn’d. And off they rode, the flouting train; Behind the hill the 'anghter died; With kindly face and slackened rein, He rode the aged dame beside. ,r Now whither rid'st thou, fair Sir Knight, By wild and waste and woody lane?” “I ride,” quoth he. “in joust to fight, Before...

Codb-B'Y’*. We say It for an hour or for years: We ray it s miling, say It choked with tears; We say it coldly, ray it with a kiss; And yet we have no other word than this— Good-bye. We have no dearer worn for our heart’s friend, For him who journeys to the world’s far erd, And scars our soul with going; thus we say, As unto him who steps but o’er the way— Goodbye. Alike to those we love and those we hate, We say no more In parting.

A St. Petersburg correspondent of the San Francisco Cnrojiicle furnishes that paper a description of the czar’s regal winter palace, as follows: Scarce as money is and poor as are the mass of people, there is enough to keep up a certain style, especially in the royal palaces and public buildings. Thanks to the courtesy of G. 31. Hutton, the United States vice consul general, who was in charge of the consulate, we obtained permission to go over the winter palace, a favor not always granted to strangers. It is a huge building of brownatone, and covers a large area, each of the sides (it is nearly square) measuring |some 450 feet; but it is not more than ninety feet .high, and the heavy cornice that forms an almost unbroken line around the ton still further detracts from the height.

MANS SEARCH FOR KNOWLEDGE. Look, the world tempts our eye. And we would know it all! We map the starry sky. We mine this earthen ball, We measure the sea tides, we number the sea sands; W r e scrutinize tho dates Of long-past human things. The bounds of effaced States, The lines of deceased kings; We search out dead men's words, and works of dead men's hands; We shut onr eyes and muse How our own minds are made, What springs of thought they use, How Tighten’d, howt>etrayed— And spend our wit to name what most employ unnamed. But still, os we proceed, The mass swells more and more Of volumes yet to road, Of secrets yet to explore. Our hair grows gray, car eyes are dimm’d our heat is tamed. —Matthew Arnold.
