DBSOLATE ] . I strain my worn-out eight across the sea , I hear the wan waves sobbing on the Btrand , My eyes grow weary of the sea and land , Of the wide deep and the forsaken lea ; Ahl Love , return—ah I Love , come back to me As well these ebbing waves I might command To torn and kiss the moist-deserted sand I The Joy that was is not , and cannot be . The salt shore , lurrowed by the foam smells sweet , . Oh I blest for me if it were now my lot To make this shore my rest , and hear all strife Die ont like yon tide s faint , receding boats ¦ » If he forgot so easily In life . May in death forget that he forgot .

BRAVO I A Touching Incident In the lUfe of a ¦ i- Distinguished Violinist . [ From Early London Days . ] One beautiful summer day there was a great festivalin the luge park at Vienna . This park is called by the people the Fiater . It is full of lovely trees ,-fine walks and little pleasure-houses . At tho time of which I am speaking it was almost covered with crowds of people . Among a number of organ-grinders , beggars , and girls who played on harps there stood an old musician . He had once been a soldier , bat his pension was not enough to live on . Still , he did not like to beg ; therefore , on this particular festival day , he took Ms violin and played under a tree in the park .. He had a faithful dog with him , which lay at his feet and held a hat in his mouth , so that passers-by might cast coins into it . On the day which I have just mentioned the dog sat before him with the old hat . Many people went by , and heard the musician playing , but they did not help him much . I...

HORRORS ON SHIPBOARD . Terrible Mortality Among Kmlgrants , ( From the New York Times . ) Sanitary Superintendent Harris has just received the report of the Waterside Sanitary Inspector , Dr . Johnson , in regard to the ship John Berrara . This vessel , which is of 778 tons burden , arrived at quarantine on the 10 th instant , after a voyage of 103 days from Hamburg , more than half of which had been spent in battling the contrary winds of the North Sea . The ship started with 448 German emigrants , who stepped on board at Hamburg in ruddy health , with all the stolid strength of Fatherland unimpaired . When the ship came to anchor in the Lower Bay at the close of this protracted and stormy voyage , nineteen of these sturdy emigrants had been committed to deep sea graves ; fifty others had been prostrated by almost mortal sickness , and nearly all of them were but the ghosts of the stalwart men , women and children who shipped at Hamburg . Upon examination the ship was found to be i...

Indeed ,- tho mild winter , thus far , has disappointed the calculations of those who have a monopoly ol fuel , and prevented the expected rise in coal and wood , for which we are devoutly thankful . THE MONEY MAEKET here is easier , and responsible parties find no difficulty in obtaining all Hie discounts they need for the ordinary purposes of trade . THE WHEAT MABKET has been quite active , prices for No . 2 rangins : from 83 ja 84 i , and the result is quite a demand for money among grain dealers . But the fluctuations in price are such as to forbid all oreaoience of the future . Nothing would te...

[ From the Mew York Post , 21 st ] About two years ago the authorities of the City Bank were thrown into great excitement by the discovery of a forgery of which they were the victims , and whreh had been planned and executed with more than usual skill and determination . A check for $ 75 , 000 , bearing the signature of Commodore Yanderbilt , had been presented and honored some two or three months before , and no suspicion had been awakened in the minds of the cashiers . — SubBeqaent inquiries proved beyond all . doubt that the check was forged , and it appeared equally certain that all clue to the . perpetrator of the crime was hopelessly lost . The matter was at once placed in the hands of the Detective Police , and Mr . Elder , who at the time was at Saratoga , was selected for the one ous duty . It may not be uninteresting to recount the methods selected with a view to the detection of the offender , and ...
