little lady, a remark about the weather on

were soon conversing with animation.
Meanwhile, the blushing cheek and bright
eyes of the fair one seemed to betoken
that she was well pleased with ber com

than ever. ;
"I am afraid we shall have a storm,"
she remarked, pointing towards a dark
cloud upon which the captain of the boat

was gazing anxiously.
"We may, but do not be alarmed mad

a red cigar cafe from his pocket and
asked his companion if she objected to
a smoke. Then be started, and quick
ly returning the red one to bis pocket,
pulled forth another of a blue color.

The sea swept the boat, which lay so
far over that bar machinery was soon
damaged so that it would not work,
The wind, screaming like a demon, threw
her over still farther.
Suddenly we observed the sailors en
deavoring to loosen a long-boat on the
davits at the stem. Meanwhile there
was an ominous grinding, smashing
noise under the counter. 1 tie truth
could not be concealed ; we were sink
ing. Tbe ladies screamed : the handsome
passenger lost his self-possession - and
ran hither and thitber.
The cool behavior of tbe little lady
in black contrasted strangely with the
agitated demeanor of those around her.
There she stood calm and immovable,
her bright steel-blue eyes fixed upon this
handsome stranger, of whom she did not
lose sight for a moment.
"Keep quiet, ladies and gentlemen t"

sternly. "I would like to see what Mon

showing him guilty beyond doubt.
Long before his execution his name
was ascc r ained to be Louis Rosseneau,

The President transmits the application
of the Republic of Santo Domingo that

The message discusses at some length
the qnestiou of the right of extrad tion,
especially as to citizens of the United
States and residing permanently abroad
with their families, and suggests legisla
tion on the subject.
It refers to the establishmHit of a Re
public in Spaiu and to the efforts of tbe
new GaTernment to abolish slavery in all
its dominions, which efforts are opposed
by the reactionary slaveholders of Cuba,
who are vainly striving to stop the match
of civilization. The balufal influence bad
thus succeeded in dcfealiug the efforts of
all liberal minded men in Spain to abolish
slaver' in Cuba, in preventing the propo
sed reformation in that island In tbe
interest of humanity, of civilization, and
of progress, it was to be hoped that tho
evil influence might be soon averted.
In reference to the capture of the Vir
gir.ius and to the inhuman and illegal
m ardor of fifty-three of tbe passengers and
crew, he says that the Spanish govern
ment had recognized the justice of this
demand, and had arranged for the imme
diate delivery of tho vessel and for the
surrender of the survivors of the passen
gers and crew, and for a salute to the flag,
and for proceedings looking to the pun
ish -nent of those who may be proved to
have been guilty of illegal acta f violence
towards citizens of the United States, and
also towards indemnifying those who may
be shown to be entitled to indemnity.
The correspondence on the subject had
been conducted in cypher and by cable,
and therefore not in a condition to be snb-

MORNI'G IN SPRING.
How sweet is this grove,
With iu delicate odora
Of earth and of air !
How soH are the shadow
That sleep on the sward !
Here, love, let m rot I
How tender the hues.
Like the bloom on the plant,
f the fardrcnming mountain,
That sleep on the sky!
How fnint the dim distance,
Through Ion;; silent viataa
Of thick-thronging tree!
Look, love, as the breeze lifts
And whispers among them,
The leaves all alive
In the flickering sunlight
Stir, murmur, and talk.
List, love, how the brooklet
Is talking and telling
Iu petulant troubles
Amid the lush graa.e,
Around the wet stones.
How tendtr and dear
I this beautiful dar.
All Wk til. k. loanf r
And grace of the spring !
None ever was like it
None ever before,
An 1 nonerer could be
Till love lent iu spell !
A spirit ia moving
Around u unseen,
It haunU with iu presence
This delicate air,
And draws us for ever
With mystical sway,
Till sweet ailent longing
Stream forth from the heart,
A the odor that stream
From live buds and the blossoms
At touch of the spring.
Oh, lean on my brenst, love !
Look into my eyes!
All nature breathes love !
O time, do not pan !
Stay with as stay with un,
O beautiful day !
Stay, exqnl-ite dream !
For it is hot a dream
What we feci and we see.
A band a rude noise
In a moment might wake us,
And d r i v o i i away.
Oh, keep us suspended
'Twin beaten and earth,
Half soul and balf sense,
And break not the dream!
For the sounds and the sighU
Like our likes are ideal,
Or only half real,
And under a spell.
Are all thiqgs enchanted
In Ufa and hi nature?
Ah. yes for we love.
In the tree, in the flowers,
In ihe brook, in the stouea,
Is a spirit iai prisoned
That Calls Do the soul,
That pays ojs to free it
And longs tip come forth.
Yet vainly we struggle
To break ihe enchantment,
And v ainly we listen
To cntch what it says
Too distant, too subtle,
Too fine for our sense,
Is the musio that calU us,
That haunU and lonncnU ua,
Still fleeing before us,
Still taunting us on.
Say, what can wc answer ?
Oh, where is the charm
That can break the enchantment,
Unloose the bound spirit,
And give us the key
To the silence not silence,
The beauty and grace
That keeps biding and taunting
The innermost soul?
Oh love ! in par loving
Still something we wsnt,
For I cannot be uUerly yours
Nor you mine
For we cannot o'erlesp, love,
The bound that divided as,
And our souks and oar senses
Fall back on tbeanselvca
For we cannot express, love,
What throb j within us,
And we rink back to silence,
Bo vain ia our speech.
Ob love ! I ae love yoa,
I would we could merge
To one spirit one body,
With no mint and thine
To a union so perfect,
So close and-ao single,
That naught could divide a
Again into two.
EVENING IN SUMMER,
