THE KNIGHT OF THE SWAN. f Translate from German of Kelferfor N Y. Post J The young Countess of Cleve was deeply troubled and in great distress One of her vassals. an nudacious. insolent fellow, had not only presumed to renounce his allegiance to her, hut he had also made himself master of her cas tle and her liberty ; nay, he even demanded her hand, and therewith the dominion of her lands. She saw no means of saring herself from this rebellious subject; for no knight of her land would dare to throw the glove in challenge to an antagonist, from whose skill in fighting, cc I xualfigtj re and strength, no happy result could I be hoped for. Without ceasing, the distressed but Aevout woman addressed her prayer to h?aven. that a helper might appear to her in her trouble, and the heart of some good cham pion he aroused to contend for her good cause, and free her from the troublesome, importunate vaceal According to the tradition, It is said that there hung on her rosary a little silver Dell, with the wonderful peculiarity that its gentle tone increased in power and sound in the dis tance, but that in a particular direction only; and a remote king is said to have heard it like a call for help, and the summons to send up the Rhine assistance for the oppressed innocent. This demand, arising, perhap#, from a phan t-ism, the king considered an adventure for his ouly son, and it was embraced by him with that eagerness with which the noble knight of olden time seized every occasion to lend a protecting arm to the weaker, and especially to the women. A swan appeared on the waves of the stream ; it drew a boat by a golden chain, and. as if of fering itself for use. halted at.the shore, whence the king's son was looking wistfully into the mysterious distance. This appeared to the young man an evident sign and command of the higher powers to enter the bark, and scarcely was this done when the swan paddled swiftly up the Rhine and vanished Irom the sight of the king. At Cleve, in the meantime, the day had ar rived which the rebel, now lord, had nppointod for his marriage to the countess, nnd she could not avoid this fate, unless some knight should present himself bold enough to challenge the villain to mortal combat. Just when she. full of anguish, was obliged to attire herself for the cereuiony. and believed herself already lost, she i eheldfrom the windows of her high castle a swan towing a boat up the stream, in which lay a sleeping young knight. She immediately remembered that it had been prophesied to hor by a pious nun. that a sleep ing youth would sometime rescue her from great distress; and joyfully surprised, she was looking upon the wonder, when the beautiful stranger awoke, stepped on shore, and the swan immediately turning back, disappeared from her sight. The knight directed his steps to the castle, knelt on one knee to the countess, and )>eggod permission to fight for her possession. The maid gladly accepted his offer, and an appeal wa? made to the judgment of God, in the spacious court of the castle. Raging like a grim, wild boar, the vassal attacked the strange champion. Many a sympathizing heart, friendly to the woman, might well beat with anxiety at this apparenly so unfortunate contest, in which it appeared inevitable that tho youth, thongh adroit and valiant indeed, yet by no means equul in sire to his powerful antagonist, must be overcome. Bat the righteous cause prevailed; severely smitten by the sharp sword of the brave youth, the offender sank down dead, and then, amid the loud rejoicing of tho multitude, the victor knelt betore her he had so fortunately rescued. With looks of the most cordial love, she gave him her thanks ; but not with word* alone did she reward the hero, for after a few weeks, the happy youth led the countess to the altar, to be united with her in the firm bonds of wedlock. No loving wife could easily be happier than the countess was with her husband, who re quited her fondncs* with the most siucere fidel ity Only one thing disturbed the bli? in the countess's heart, namely, neither she nor any ? uo else knew from whence the knight came nnd of what descent he was. Before they were united she was obliged to give him the moit ??acred assurance that she would never question bim about his home and name, for on this ques tion?eo he with full warning informed her? was linked his destiny, and should >>he ever make the inquiry he mast leave her forever. The eounte?s had made it a point to conform to his wishes, and years passed by without dis turbance of her happiness, which was height ened by the growing of three sous, who promised to he an honor to knighthood. Bat the more manly and strong the boys be came. the more it pained the mother's heart that they should not enjoy the ancestral name? the name of their father who was unbouhtedly of high extraction. So once, when she could no louger resist the impulses of her heart, she im plored her husband not to leave his sons longer without the paternal name?for the humblest one amongst the people inherits from his father? and not to wait till they should be looked u(<on and despised as baatards lie must, therefore, no longer conceal his name, and whence he came. Wan and amazed he heard her words, and with painful emotion cried, 44 Wo to thee, un happy mother, what hast thou done ? The hap I-mess of us all is destroyed by thy words! rom this hour forth, must I leave thee and never return " Then he sounded his silver horn out on the waters, and it echoed far through the night. Behold! with the breaking morn, the swan appeared swimming on the waves, bat oot bringing blessings ?s before The hus band, the father, steppt*i in the boat, before the eyes of the horror-stricken, stupefied countess, and the mighty swan went back from whence he came, aud uever more was seen. Death soon matched away the forsaken wife in her sorrow, hat her sons became progenitors of noble lines, all of which to this day wear the swan upon their arms. Unrein or Min? Mat.?Miss Juliana May returns, we understand, on the first of Septem her. thus closing a long novitiate of study which fhe has been pursuing in Europe, nnd coming home t<> commence, in her own native land, her professional career As our readers are all i>r<rb?hly aware, from the frequent mention of her in this and o'her journals, her natural gifts. i?s a concert singer and prima donna, are very uncommon. Her voice is an exceedingly fine one in its quality, and of great compass, and t&e seal an?i industry with which she has taken advantage of the 44 means and appliances" for its culture abroad, have been th<jse of a verita ble enthusiast n the art. But the more special attraction which she will bring for our Ameri can public, is the elevation that will be given t?? the sentiment and expression of her music, hy the charms of refinement and education. A daughter of one of the best educated and most iutelloctually high-toned families in our coun try, she has all that can infuse soul and mean ing into else mere normal or mechanical music, nnd this, we venture to say, will be as great a difference as is made by tho samo elements in inauner and character. Miss May, in addition to these superiorities, is a young lady of most prepossessing personal appearanee. and, in fact, Lis more of the materials of success than falls often to the lot of an artist in her profeaaior.

VOL. X. WASHINGTON, D. C., TUESDAY, AUGUST 25, 1857. NO. 1,435. VISIT OF A!* ENGLISHMAN TO THE U. S. STEAM FRIGATE NIAGARA. [From the Worrlngton (Eng.) Guardian, Aug. 1.] I We sailed close up to the Niagara, boarding her that we might see tho American leviathan, and also that wonderful cable which is to bind nations togother. On reaching her deck, we found her cuptain repeating to Lord Talbot a part of a speech by our Premier on the cable being likely to dispense with diplomacy. With a true seaman's politeness, he begged us to fol low him?to be for once like a flock of sheep? and he would show us all worth seeing, only the ladies must not run away with any of his tars. I llis state cabin wax the first place we entered, I and that we found he had all but given up to the scientific gentlemen who were to go with I him to see the cable laid. From thence we were taken through the midshipmen's mess room to the compartmeut fitted up for the cable, or rather for u part of it. On the captain intro ducing to the young gontlemen, "My Lord Tal bot, and the members of tho AllhoMjIogieal So ciety,'" a few of them rose and returned the sa lute , but most, with true American politeness, would not rise for either lord or ladies. The immense quantity of ropo. the beautiful way in which it was coiled, and the smallncss of its sire, were especial objects of interest. Can it be that that rope, not thickcr than your thumb, is to be under tho Atlantic, and convey messages from the one continent to the other ? I Yes; that is its intention, and our readers may see a part of it in our local museum. An in spection of the threo mighty engines whieh move the monstrous screw of the Niagara, was our next work. Then came the cooking appa ratus for tWO sailors and marines; after that tho lower decks of the vessel, and finally tho con struction of the cable was explained to us by Captain Hudson, in his own cabin, and the ma- I chinerv for paying out tho cable on deck. On deck everything had the appearance of a machine-making establishment. An engine was being erected upon it, and a series of drums and pulleys to prevent the cable running out too fast, in case of an accident. We found that it was perfectly true, as tho Times had said, that one part of the cable was spuu left handed, i and the other right?a thing, the captain said, which no sailor would have done. Another curious uiistako we learned. Tho receptacles in his vessel were made to hold 1,250 miles of the cable, but 100 miles had to be stowed on deck, owing to his half of it being spun the eighth of an inch thicker than tho other half. During our tour through tho noble vessel, Capt. Hudson enlivened the com]?any with his genu ine wit, delighted us all by his gentlemanly bearing, and made us personally feel, in sha king hands, and wishing him a successful voy age, that, in the words of an offieer of his sister ship, the Susquehannah. we wero parting with a man who was " every inch of his flesh, and every drop of his blood, a sailor and a gentle man." It will please many of our readers to know that, with a crew of 5U0. ho stowed the cable at double the prescribed speed, by relays, without trenching upon the Sabbath, which he refuses to violate. On leaving the Niagara, our band played Yankee Doodle,'' and hearty and long were the cheers we gave, returned with equal warmth by the sailors who manned the yards. There was one thing, remarked by all, to the dispar agement of the American crew. On our near ing the Niagara, her dccks swarmed with sail ors in a most dirty and idle condition. The dirt we might have overlooked, as the result of the cable stowing; but to seo the seamen of a Government ship lolling over the sides, hands in their pockets, or under their chins, some half shaved, others who never had been ; some with one kind of clothes, and some with another, badly contrasted with the remarkably clean condition of the men of the Hastings, lying not far off. DR. KAE UFON UR. KANE A.M)MK JOHN FRANKLIN. During the seventh day's exercises of the ! Scientific Convention Dr. John Kac. the dis coverer of the most authentic relies of Sir Johu Franklin's party, addressed the meeting He exhibited the few of the relics he had retained ?watch ease*, chains, a spoon marked with Sir J screit, and others?and recounted the man ner of their discovery. He had been employed lor four years by the British Oovernmeut on expeditions in search of some traco of the lost navigator, and had despaired of success before undertaking his last voyage, the main object of which was. to him, to attain additional geo ?graphical knowledge of that regiou. But ho ell in with Esquimaux who gave him informa tion ?>f the party, and procured for him many undoubted relics, all of which are now in pos session of the British government, excepting those he carried with him. He said he had not | the least hope that any of Franklin's party yet survive?no more than of those who perished in the steamer Arctic; because in the locality where they were known to be, it is almost im possible to find food of any kind, and even ex perienced hunters could not have survived. Dr. Kac believes that, aitcr wintering the first year at Beechy Island, Sir John Franklin attempted to carry out his plan by crossing I'eale's Sound, and reaching Behring's Straits. | His party was seen coming down Peale's Sound at a place near King William's Land. Dr. Kae thinks they must have perished from hunger , and scurvy. He mentioned that about that i time the English government found that a large quantity of tho preserved meat used on long voyages was putrid, and it is possible that th<j I i provisions aarried by Franklin may have been in a similm condition. He accounts for the disappearance of the bodies by the supposition that they must have been carried away by the melting of the ice, and that possibly tho final remains were devoured by wild animals. lie stated that Captain McCliatock. who is now en- | gaged on an expedition under the auspiccs of Lady Franklin, will endeavor to recover the written records of the party. Dr. Rae has no hope that this attempt will b? successful, as he learned from the Esquimaux that they had I i found a number of books with the other relics, | but that their children had destroyed them. J Dr. Bae was fortunate enough to find, in the ]M>ssession of a woman, two leaves, all that re mained?of a Bible, which showed that they really had among them some books of the party. I He also obtained a piece of wood on which was carved the name of Mr. Stanley, Sir John Franklin's surgeon, which piece of wood he carried to London, where it was identified by the manufacturer. Dr. Kae places implicit confidence in the statements of these Esquimaux, his experi ence among them having given him no reason to doubt their reliability. He attaches no val ue to the surmises of those who imagine the party may have been murdered, because he has fouud all tho Esquimaux east of the McKen tie river to be every way well disposed to the white*, and because his own party, which was much smaller, was never harmed. . He gave some extremely iutereetlng ^.articu lars of the manner and characteristics of the Esquimaux. Among other matters, Dr. Rao stated his be lief that Dr. Kane had made one unfortunate mistake?that of using tents instead of building snow houses, like the inhabitants. The latter, he said, are infinitely more comfortable, and, moreover, the use of tents makes it nece*?ary for i eaeli man of a partv to earry live times as much M would be necessary with the other j arrangement- , A ran* Kn>.?Among the many rare curiosities ou exhibition at the t*an Franci*- I co Museum. says the Petersburg, Va.

As the School increases, the number of Teachers will be also increased: thereby securing every aux iliary to the rapid advancement of the Student. Every effort will be put forth to maintain the high tone aud character of the School. Appropriate hours will be set apart for study and daily exercise. The discipline will be mild and per suasive, but very firm. Two Saturdays are appoint ed every month for the girls to visit aud make pur Chnsas. The Gospel is preached froni four different pulpits,affording to each the privilege of attending the Church of her choice..
