POETRY^ __ Hope. In the quiet garden of my life There growetk a red-rose troo: A little b;r i sits on the topmast bough. And merrily slngeth he.

Translation for the Press of La Tour du Monde rn Quartre-Vingls Jours" of Jules Verne. CHAPTER I. Iii the year 1872 the mansion in Savillc r.jw Eurlington Gardens—the mansion in which Slieridau died in 1814, was occupied by Phileas Fogg, one of the members—the most remarkable and eccentric—of the Lon don Reform Club. Phileas Fotjg—an enigmatic person, of whom no one knew any thing—except that be w.w of an high English family, and a gal lant gentleman, and tilled the chair in the Reform Club, vacated by one of England's greatest statesmen. They said be resembled Byron—bit- a By ron coiu, without passiou—impassible—who couid have lived a thousand years, without growing old. He was English—assuredly— not perhaps a Londoner for he bad never been seen on Change, at the Bank or any of the business bouses of the city. None of the dock yards or docks received a ship owned by or consigned to him—and bis name never firmed in any administrative committee, never echoed in the College of Advocates, at Lincoln's Inn or at Gray’s Inn. lie never made a plea in the Court ot Chancery, at the Queen’s Bench, at the Exchequer or at the Ecclesiastical ■ ourt. He was neither mer chant, manufacti r rnor agrieultuiist. He was a member of the London Reform Club— that was all. If any one is surprised that a gentleman so mysterjous should have been admitted among the members of this honorable association, it will be answered, that lie passed upon the recommendation of the Messrs. Baring Bros., at whoie house be bad an open account, for a certain distinction attaches to one whose checks are regularly paid at sight, and whose bank account is invariably creditor. Was Mr. Phileas Fogg rich? Unqucslion bly—but how he had made his money the be^t informal could not say—and Mr. Fogg was the last person to give any inform ition. He nas not prodigal; neither was he miserly— ter wnen money was needed for any noble, generous or useful object, be gave freely and, as often as possible, anonymously. No one was less communicative than be; lie talked very little and seemed the more mysterious because be was so silent. Nevertheless his life was open as the day, but what he did was so mathematically the same thing always, that the dissatisfied imagination fancied some coucealcd. n ■lrl Kit travulDtl 9 TK tv*»« rtrnKoRln—fm* nn one possessed better than he, knowledge of the world. There was no spot so remote hut that he seemed to have some special knowl edge of it. Sometimes, in a few brief, clear words, he answered 'the thousand and one questions which circulated in the Club in re gard to travelers lost or astray—lie pointed out the true probabilities, and his words seemed to he inspired by a second sight, so often aid the events justify them. This man hai traveled everywhere,—in spirit at all events—but ,whatever may have happened formerly, it is certain that for many years Phileas Fogg had never left London. Those who had the honor to know him a little intimately, asserted that, if it was not on the diiect way that lie came each day from his house to the club, no one could pretend to have seen him elsewhere. His only pastime was to read the journals, and play whist. In this silent game, so well suited t > his nature, he often won; but iris gains never went into his own purse,—they couuted an important sum in his budget of charity. Otherwise, one must say, Phileas Fogg evidently played for the play "and not for gain. The game was to him a contest, a combat, but a battle with out movement,disturbauce or difficulty—with out fatigue—aud that was his character. No one knew whether he had a wife or children, parents or friends. He lived alone in his mansion in Saviile Row, no one went there aud only one domes tic served him. He breakfasted and dined at piecise hours at the Club, in the same room, at the same ta ble, entertaining none of his friends, never in viting any strangers. He returned to his house at midnight precisely, never using any of tile comfortable chambers, that were kept for the use of the Club. The mansion in Saviile Row, without being sumptuous, was thoroughly furnished for comfort. Moreover, with the invariable hab its of the occupant very little service was needed;—at the same time, Phileas Fogg ex acted of his single domestic extreme regulaii ty aud punctuality. He had this day, the 2nd October, dismiss ed John Forster from service—the boy having committed the great fault of carrying to him for shaving waterat 84 Fahrenheit", instead of 80,—and he waited his successor who would present bimself at half past eleven. Phileas Fogg sat upright in his chair,his feet close to gether—like a soldier on parade, his bands resting on his knees, head erect, watching the needle of the clock,—a complicated piece of mechanism, which indicated the hours, min utes, seconds, the days, quarters, years. As half past eleven struck Phileas Fogg ought, following his daily habit, to leave the mansion to go to Lbe Reform Clubat this moment some one knocked at the door of the room in which Mr. Fogg waited, and John Forster an nounced the “new servaut.1’ A man of about thirty years entered and saluted him. i ouare r rencu, aim you arc called Jean /" inquired Phileas Fogg. “Jean, with all deference to you,” replied the new comer, “Jean Passepartout Catch key)—a nickname given to ire for my natur al aptitude to get myself out of a scrape. I believe myself to be honest, but to be frank, I have followed many trades. I have been strolling singer, then rider in the circus, making the flying trapeze as Leotard, or dancing on the tight rope at Blondfn, then I became Prof, of Gymnastics; finally to render my talents more useful I was sergeant ot fire men at Paris. But it is five years since I left Paris, wishing to enjoy rest and quiet. I took service in a English family, in of « situation, and hearing that'Mr. Phileas Fogg is the most exact and settled man in all England, I present myself here, Sir, with the hope to live tranquil and forget even this name Pa»separt jut.” “Passepartout suits me,” replied the gen tlemau, “you are recommended, i have good reference concerning von—yon know my conditions?” “Yes, sir.” “Well, what time are you?” “Twenty-two minutes past eleve re plied Passepartout, drawing from his pocket a large silver watch. “You are slow,” said Mr. Fogg. “You will pardon me, Sir, but that is impossible.” “You are four minutes slow—but no mat ter, it is sufficient to state the fact. To start from this moment, twenty-nine minutes past eleven, this Wednesday, Oct. 2nd. 1872, you ate my servaut.” Phileas Fogg arose, took his hat in his left hand, placed it on his head with the move ment of an automaton,and disappeared with out adding another word. Passepartout heard the street door close the first time—it was his new master who went out then—the second time, it was his predecessor, John Forster, who went away in his turn. Passepartout remained aloue in Saville Kow. CHAPTER II. “Upon my word,” said Passepartout to himself, a little disconcerted at first., “I have seen at Madame Sussaud's show some pup pets as wide awake as my new master.” During the few instants of his interview with Phileas Fogg, Passepartout had rapi ly, but carefully examined him. He was about forty vears old—a flue and noble face, magnifi cent teeth, tall in stature, blond bail- and whiskers, forehead smooth, without any ap pearance ot vrinkles at the temples. He ap peared to possess in the highest degree what physiognomists call repose in action, a facul ty common to those who accoromish their work vithout noise. Calm, phlegmatic, clear eye, eyebrow motionless, he was the perfect type of that English sauafroid, which one meets so frequently in the United Kingdom. Seen in the different acts of his life, this gentleman gave one the idea of a being per fectly balanced—as perfectly as a chronometer of Leroy or Evanshard. In effect be was exactitude personified. Itshowed itself clear ly in tiie expression of his hands and his feet tor with man as with animals, every member ,s an organ express've of passion. Passepirtout at thirty years was not a valet of comedy, who, with shrugged shoulders and assured manner, always wide awake, are ouly impudent knaves. No, he was a good fellow with an amiab'e face and one of those round “eads that one likes to see on the shoulders of a fri -ud.» He had blue eyes, a full face and round cheeks, broad-shouldered, tall and ™U9C„ar- be possessed almost herculean WtYch ,tbe exercises of his youth had T?X? iLdefVel0pe,d- His bair 'ras curly. tn oXt0r9 antiquity knew eighteen ways to arrange the hair of Minerva, Passe pirtout knew only one to dispose'°™T kree strokes of a comb, and it was arranged. the expansive character ot the T0 L Should agree with that of Phileas FoM tbehmost elementary prudence would i Hrimit would he be so thoroughly exact “ he niiist he to suit lii, master? Time “id tell. Having led a life so vagabond, he wanted rest. Having heard so much in praise' of English quiet and precision, he came to seek his fortune in England, but un til now lie had not found his ideal. A per son whose life was so uniform, who never slept out, who never traveled, who wai never absent even for a day, was just the one to suit him. He presented himself and was ac cepted as we know. **■ Half past eleven rung—he found himself alone in the mansion in Saville Row. and commenced an inspection, going from cellar to attic. This mansion, clean, plain, puritan ic, well arranged for work, pleased him. It seemed like a beautiful shell, but a shell warmed and lighted by gas. Passepartout found in tlie seeond story without trouble the chamber destined for himself. It suited him. Electric bells and speaking tubes put it in communication with the rooms in the first and second story. Up on the chimney was an electr c clock corres ponding to the one in the chamber of Mr. Fogg, and the two seemed to mark the same instant—the same second. “That just suits me, that just suits me,” said Passepartout to himself. He noticed also a card fastened below the clock—it was the routine of daily service. He understood that from eight o’clock iu the morning, the regular hour when Mr. Fogg arose, until half past eleven, wheu he left the house to go to his breakfast at the Reform Club, all the details of service—the lea and toast at twenty-three minutes past eight water for shaving at thirty-seven min utes past nine—hair dressing at twenty min utes of ten, etc., etc. Then from half past eleven until midnight, the hour when this methodical gentleman went to bed, all was noted, foreseen, arranged. Passepartout en joyed studying this programme, and imprint ed the different lules in his mind. Moreover the wardrobe of Mr. Fogg was well selected and complete in all its details. To each pair of pantaloons, vest or coat, was attached a number reproduced on a register, showing the date, in which according to the season,"each garment should in turn, be worn or laid aside. This mansion, which must have been at the epoch of the idustrious Sheridan only a tem ple of disorder, presented now the picture of comfort and regularity; and announced a handsome competency. No library—no books—they would have been of no use to Phileas Fogg, since the Reform Club kept for use two—one devoted to belle lettres, the other to law and politics. In the chamber whore lie slept was a safe of medium size, 1 fire and burglar proof ”—no equipments of the chase or ot war,—every tiling denoted the most pacific habits. Alter having examined the house in detail, Passepartout rubbed liis hands, his face brightened, and he repeated joyously—“just the" thing—we shall agree perfectly—Mr. Fogg and I,— a regular and domestic man—a true automaton. Well I am not sorry to serve an automaton.” CHAPTER III. X UllUiia XM.I”” 1CIO bUC 1UU113IUU Cl 13AVJ.I1C llow at half past cloven, and after having placed thirteen hundred and seventy-five times the right foot before the left—and thir teen hundred and seventy-five times the left. foot before the right—he arrived at the Re form Club—-a g:and edifice in Pall Mali, which cost three millions to build. Phileas Fogg went soon to the breakfast room—and took his accustomed place at the i table. His breakfast comprised boiled fish with Reading sauce, roast beef rare, and veg etables, rhubarb and gooseberry pic, a hit of old Chester cheese—with so"-e cups of tea— specially gathered for the office cf the Reform Club. At forty-seven minutes past noon this gen tleman arose and directed his steps to the grand Saloon—a sumptuous hall ornamented with paintings richly framed. A servant handed him the Times uncut, which he un folded with a precision of hand denoting great facility in so difficult an operation. The reading of the journal occupied him just three hours and forty minutes—then came the Daily Telegraph which occupied him un til dinmr. This repast was accomplished in the same manner as the breakfast, with the addition of “Royal British Sauce.” At twenty minutes prst eight he reappear ed in the grand saloon and w as absorbed in reading tlie Chronicle. Half an hour later, some of the members of the vAub entered and drew near tlie grate in which burned a coal fire. They were the partners of Mr. Fogg and like him earnest whist players. Andrew Stuart, ‘he engineer, John Sullivan and Samuel Fallentin bank ers, and Walter Ralph, one of the administra tors of the Bank of London, the brewer Thomas Flanegan—all rich and distinguish ed, even in this Club, which counted among its members the leaders of industry and finance. “Well! Ralph, what of the affair of the rob bery?” asked Thomas Flanegan, “Oh,’’'replied Andrew Stuart, “the bank will lose its money.” “I hope, on the contrary, that we shall find the thief,” said Walter Ralph. “Abie and efficient detectives have been sent to America and through Europe to all the prin cipal ports and it will be difficult for this man to escape them.” “But have they a description of the thief?” asked Andrew Stuart. “First, he is not a thief,” replied Walter Ralph. “How so, that he is not a thief—this indi vidual who has subtracted £55,000 in bank notes ?’ ’ “No,” replied Ralph. “Is he then a manufacturer?” asked John Sullivan. “The Morning Chronicle assures us that he is a gentleman.” The one who made this reply was no olher than Phileas Fogg, whose head appeared above the mass of papers around him—at the same time he saluted his colleagues—who re turned the salutatior. The fact in question—which the different journals of the United Kingdom discussed with so much ardor had occurred three days before—the 29th of September. A bundle of bank notes (an immense sum) had been taken from the table of the principal cashier of the Bank of Eugland. To those who were surprised that any such turit wuim uavu accompuaiieu so easily, Walter replied that at the moment, the cash ier was occupied In registering a small receipt (three shillings)—and one could not have an eye upon every thing. But it is well to say here, that which renders the thing more ex plicable. The Bank of England appears to be ex tremely careful of the dignity of the public; no guards,—no bars.—gold, silver and bank notes are (redly exposed, and are, so to speak, at the mercy of the 6rst comer. They would not put in suspicion the honesty of any body. One of the most acute observers of English usage tells,—being in one of the rooms of the Bank one day, he had the curiosity to exam ine an ingot of gold weighing seven or eight pounds, which lay upon the table of the cash ier. He took the ingot, examined it, passed it to his neighbor, this oue to the next, and. although it passed from hand to hand all the length of the corridor, and did not return for more than half an hour,—it was replaced be fore the cashier had raised his head. But on the 29th of September the bank notes did not return—and when the magnifi cent clock sounded the hour for closing, the Bank of England had to pass that sum to the account of profit and loss. A' the Morning Chronicle said, there was reason to suppose that the theft was not com mitted by any member of the societies of English thieves, for during the day-—29th of Sept, -a gentleman of elegant and disting uished manners had been noticed coming and going in the cashier’s room—the scene of the theit—an exact description of whom had been sent to all the detcctiyes, in Gieat Britain, America and on the Continent. As one would suppose it was the topic of the day in Londou and all England. They discussed it, and became excited as to the chances of success of the metropolitan police. The Hon. Walter Ralph would not doubt the success of the search thinking that the prize otic red, would sharpen the zeal and in telligence or the agents. But his colleague Andrew Stuart did not share his confidence. The d scussion continued between the gentle men seated at the whist table. Stuart before Flauegan—Falleutin before I liileas Fogg. During the play, they did not speak—but be tween the rubbers the conversation was quickly resumed. “X maintain that the chances are in favor of the thief,” said Andrew Stuart, a very shrewd man. •‘But,” replied Ralph, “there is no country in which lie can take refuge; for example— where would he go ?” ‘I do not know,” replied Andrew Stuart ; “but after all, the earth is vast.” “It was formerly,” said the low voice of Pliileas Fogg. “It is vour cut.,” said he, pre senting the cards to Thomas Flanegan. The discussion was suspended during the rubber, but soou Andrew Stuart said—“How for merly? Has the earth diminished by chance!” “Without doubt,” replied Walter Ralph, “I am of the same mind as Mr. Fogg, since one can travel ten times more quickly than an hundred years ago—and in this rase which interests us now, will render the search more rapid.” “And more easy also the flight of the thief” •It is your play Mr. Stuart,” said Mr. Fogg. e' But the incredulous Stuart was not con vinced and the play finished. ‘I must avow it, Mr. Ralph, you have round a very pleasant way to say that Un earth has diminished—so because one can make t_,e tour of it in three months.” Fog1"” C‘S ty dayS on,y>” said . Philcas “In effect, gentlemen,” added John Sulli van, “m eighty days-since the section be tween Rotbal and Allahabad has been opened on the gleal inuiau 1'eiJinsuiar Ra iwai •„ and here is the calculation established bv the’ Morning Chronicle: ' J From London to Suez by Mount Ccnis, and Brindisi, railway and steamer, 7 days, hrom Suez to Bombay steamer, 13 “ I rom Bombay to Calcutta rail, 3 “ From Calcutta to lion?

Kong to Yokohama (Japan) G“ Yokohama to San Francisco, 22 “ San Franci co to New York—rail, 7 “ New York to Loudon steamer and rail, 10 “ Total, 80 days. “All included,” teplied Phileas Fogg con tinuing to play—for by this time the discus sion did not relate to whist. “Even if the Hindoos or East Indians car ry oif the rails?” said Andrew Stuart,—“If they stop the trains, and scalp the travelers ?” “All included,” replied Phileas Fogg who laid down his cards, the two highest trumps. Andrew Stuart whose turn it was to deal, gathered up the cards, saying “Theoretically you are right, Mr. Fogg, but practically, not.” “In practice also, Mr. Stuart.” “I should like to see you do it.” “It you are willing, let us go together.” “The heavens preserve me!” said Stuart “but I will bet 20,000 pounds, that such a voy age is impossible in these conditions.” “Very possible on the contrary”—replied Phileas Fogg. “Well, make it then.” “The tour of the world in 80 days?" “Yes” “I will.” “When ?” “No.vl Only I first warn you, I shall make it at your expense.” “It is a great folly,” said Andrew Stuart, who began to be vexed at the persistence of his partner—“hold on— le„ us play.” “Deal again then,’’said Mr. Fogg, “it it a mis-deal.” Andrew Stuart took the cards with a ner vous hand—thin suddenly laid them on the table.—“Well yes, Mr. Fogg, yes—I bet £20, 000.” “My dear Stuart calm yourself—it is not serious.” “When I say I bet, it is always serious.” “So be it;” said Mr. Fogg.—Then turning to bis colleagues—“I have £20,000 at my credit at Baring Brothers, I will risk that readily.” “Twenty thousand pounds!” said John Sullivan. “Twentythousandpounds, that an unforeseen delay can cause you to lose!” “The delay does not exist” said Mr. Fogg quietly. “But the eighty days is only calculated as the minimum.” “A minimum of time well employed is suf ficient.” “But not to lose, one must jump mathe matically from steamer to railway and from railway to steamer” “I shall jump mathematically.” “It is a joke!” “A true Englishman never joke* when he discusses a thing as serious as abet,” replied Phileas Fogg. “I will bet tweniy thousand pounds against what you will, that I shall make the tour of the world in eighty days. Do you accept?” “We accept,” replied the Messrs. Stuart, Sullivan, Fallcntin, Flanegau, and Ralph. “Well,” said Fogg, “the train for Dover leaves at 10-35 this evening—I will take it.” “To-night?” asked Mr. Stuart. “To-night,” answered Mr. Fogg—then ad ded—consulting, a pocket calendar—‘it is the 2d of October to-day—Wednesday—I ought to return to London", to this saloon of (he Reform Club, Saturday the 21st of December, at 10.35 P. M., in fault of which the twenty thousand pouuds to my credit at the bouse of Baring Brothers—will" belong of right to you. Here is a check for the sum.” A memorandum of the bet was made, and signed on the spot by the six co interested. Phileas Fogg remained impassive—cold, lie bad bet, hot for gam certainly;—his compan ior s seemed stu; *3ed—not because of the val ue of the bet,—but they hesitated to struggle Nine o’clock sounded. They offered to sus pend t’oc game, that I c miglit make liis pre paration? tor departure. “I am always ready”, replied this .impas sive gentleman and, taking the cards—“I re-' turn diamonds,” he said, “it is your play Mr. Stuart.” , (To be continued.)
