Poetry. Tkr Evening ef Ike Year. Wo reprint the 1'iUowing exquisite verses Item “Wayside Posies,” a collection of original and select ed poems edited by Robert Buchanan: N >w dark and dry Is piled the wheat, The urine-press feels no staiued leet, Tile white moon shrinks her sickle clear And voices ei the air refloat, “It Is the evening of the year.” Why have I missed, wliil 5 men have found? Inen siuile that corn ami wheat aoeuud, And children eat the ripened ear; 1 gaise at them iroiu barren grouuu; it is the cveuiug of the year. O love! ft seems but yesterday. A chi d in fiesh green fields 1 lay, AmiUreaini ei ihee where skn<» wrorotaegr; But withered loaves hesixew my way; It is the evening of the year. O f ice I hat I have never soon! Bemevvliei e on earth vvitn saddened mien The a wad,ist mil of sober cheer; C ,ino! where the reaper's fool hath been, It is tiie evening of the year. Come lo me, O my love, my laic, lyre ail lie ■ eld and des*date ! • (tome! I have sought I lieu far audne&r: - Come! lust 1 wither while 1 wni ; it is the evening el the year. Popular Elen. The lollow in” stories are constantly report ed in tlie newspapers, and as often as once a year they all lind lodgment iu one setting or another throughout the country, it is time they were set at rest. iVanther One. That < 'liarles Dickens is hab itually iu pecuniary difficulty; that be lives be yond his means, and is obliged to go into chancery out* or twice a year. Thai be lias made up with Mrs. Dickens and they now live together again. Charles Dickens is not only in the yearly re ceipt of very large sums, both from bis books and bis readings, but he is one ol the best business men in England, husbanding his means mostjudieiously. while his benevolence is uobiy conspicuous. His with lias nut come buck k> him. but still lives iu her owu estab lishment iu Lomlou, while his residence is at Rochester, thirty miles away from the city. Number Two That one of Mr. Longfel low's daughters was born without arms; that she draws and paints beautifully with her feet. This erroi arose from a photograph which, by a mistake iu position, gave the impression of an armless child. ^ Number t hree. That Samuel Rogers, the English poet, kept a million pound note framed ami hung up in ids library. This lie was started by an Englishman in America, and was tirst printed iu a loolish account of some London authors iu a book called •‘Ren and Ink Sketcbes.” The writer's name was John Ross Dix, who hoaxed the reading public in various ways. Number Four. That the lyrical poem be ginning “I am old and blind” was written by John Milton. The piece was written by a lady of Phila delphia, some years ago, who never pretended Milton bad anything to do with it. Number b'ire. That Humboldt said of Bay ard Taylor lie had never met with a traveller who had gone over so much ground and seen so little. This malicious anecdote was invented by an envious lecturer iu New York, who wished to write down Taylor aud write up himself. HI oiler u Farli* Baron J laussiuau is tlie most wonderful man in Paris. At a word from him houses fall and palaces rise in tbe'r place. 1 could quote Hie ••Phoenix,'’ only l have heard that fabulous bird—which 1 believe to have been simply a grilled fowl—so often died, and 1 re member too that Sheridan, even m his day. was weary of the feather-singed monster', which he heard Whitehead describe “like a poulterer.” If intellect has its march in the world, as ( think, we have heard, it must be a very ‘ Dead March in Saul,” compared to the “advance” of improvement here. You drive to the Northern Station, knowing every bouse cu route—every house aud shop, beginning wilh the umbrella depot, where “Rngish is be spokeu,” and where "a man speaks Dutch,’’ and ending with the cremerie by tbe station, which, in spite of its innocent uame^seils more’ “rhum” than cream, which is always open when you arrive by the morning mail. Sou cross over to Calais and go to London, payiug - a short and ailectionate visit either on your "Aunt wiio lives at Highbury, Au<l koopa a circulating library," or to her Grace the Duchess, who receives at the Castle. You are away a fortnight, aud then re-arrive at the Northern Station. You are lost, J assure you. Y'ou look lor some fa miliar landmark, aud ill its place yuu see the skeleton ol a great house or of an immense es tablishment. Bricks and mortar must hare risen fiorn the earth like the mythic soldiers ol Thebes. Okl Paris is, in fact, the monster dragon, and Baron Uaussman the Cadmus of modem times. I walked round the New Grand Opera only yesterday, and on get ting to the corner of the itue Chausee d’An tin, I thought 1 would call ou Madame de la Cruche-Cassee, where we used to dine so well and sup so pleasantly. “Well,” says the discunteded reader,“i sup pose she was out, aud there’s au end of this prosy story.” “Out!” my geutie and polite l eader, where there was no apart meat no house, no street; even the “office for the’sale of Materials” was removed to auother street. I he hospitable house was a remembrance. Gone—pulled dowu—tlausuiauued.—Paris Letter. Hopeful Loyalty. At Pine Biuff, Ark.,is a paper called the Southern Vindicator, and this is the style in which the editor (John George Ryan, he signs himself) vindicates him self; * 1 am nut inclined to ho au assassin, but it to destroy a tyrant is assassination, then 1 would destroy the tyrant. And it has been proved President Lincoln was the elected head aud voluntary servant of the Radicals, who purposed the destruction ol the tfoulii, and succeded in their hellish designs. I was opposed to aud fought against Lincoln and his tyrants, aud ever will. When the news of his death reached me I rejoiced. When I learned that a man who never idea tilieu kiln sell with the Uoulcderate fiuuny struck tbe t\ rant low, I thanked God that he bad selected an instrument from the heart of radicalism, right under the tyrant’s guns, to deprive America ol a radical tool. And when 1 laid dowu my arms, after a bloody struggle for independence, 1 thanked God, from ibe fulness of my heart, that Abra ham Biucolu did not live to iuoek our misery.” STEAM REELED SOil>S ?
