AW V. - w .
Oh breathe no more that simple ir,
Though soft its wild notes swell,
For it but heralds in despair
Within my heart's deep cell ;
And oh, in earlier, happier days.
In fashion's crowded throng,
I've heard from lips as fair as thine.
That sweet and gentle song ;
But she, so beautiful, so young,
One evening fell asleep
Was carried home to God while I
Was left alone to weep.
That well-known strain has in my soul
Rencw'd the dreams of youth :
When every scene was arrayed in
The garb of faith and truth : -
And as I hear its melting note,
I think of happier hours.
When life was strewed with buds of hope.
And fairy blooming flowers:
Then all was bright and beautiful.
But now those joys have fled;
And she, who warbled that sweet song,
cieeps witu me silent dead.
I ask thee, then, can I, unmoved,
List to that melting strain.
Which brings the idol of my soul
Back to my view again ?
And oh, blame not my falling tears,
As I list unto thee ;
Per, though she's sleeping in the grave,
Slie's still the same to me.
Then, oh breathe not that simple air.
It tills my soul with grief,
But let me in forgetfulness
iriud solace and relief.

particular tarletan dress of hers which

During these epochs of privation
her life in respect to dress was a per

gifts. Wealthy aunts supplied her
with cast off shoes of all sizes from
two and a half up to five, and she
used them all. She was reported to
have worn one straw hat through five
changes of fashion. It was averred
that, when square crowns were in
vogue, she flattened it over a tiu pan;
and that when round crowns returned,
she bent it on the bed post. There
was such a charm in her way of
adapting these treasures, that tbe
other girls liked to test her with new
problems in the way of millinery and
dress making ; millionaire friends
implored her to trim their hats, and
lent her their own things in order to
learn bow to wear them. This ap

we are enabled to present to our
readers this week the particulars of
the great musical festiral projected by
Mr. P. S. Gilmore of Boston, : and
which has been forhshadowed by
brief and somewhat mysterious para

programme, which bears the motto of
M Let ns have Peace," announces that
the great festiral will be held in
Boston City, on Tuesday, Wednes-
day, and Thursday, June 15, 16, and
17, 1869, in honor of the restoration
of peace and union throughout the
land. This most important eyent in

throughout the land. It will bring

leading men of the nation and people
from all parts of the land; and, aside
from its significance as the first grand
national reunion since the close of the
war, it will be the greatest feast of
sublime and inspiring harmony that
has ever been heard in any part of
Tlie structure in which this grand
assembly of musicians, singers and
spectators is to be gathered must of
course be of immense proportions.
The plan has already been prepared
by Mr. F. Allen, architect. It is
admirable in conception and in the
arrangement of details, and is finely
executed. The building will be 500
feet long, 300 feet wide, 110 feet
high at tbe eaves. The seats will
slope gradually from near the eaves
to the floor of the parquette. This
incline entirely around the structure,
will be divided into the parquette
circle, and balcony, and will be con
structed in gradually descending steps.
On the sides the lowest step will be
elevated ten feet above the floor of
the parquette, resembling in that re
spect the first balcony of a theatre.
Upon the ends, however, there is a
continuance of the inclined plane to
the floor of the parquette. Tbe
building will be entered from all
points of the compass, and there are
entrances upon each side and end,
making twelve in all. In addition
to this, stair-cases are tv be placed at
three windows upon each side during
the performances. Two of the en
trances upon each side will', lead di
redly up a flight of steps to lae up
per row of seats, or rather to a prom
enade ten feet wide, which will' ex
tend entirely around the building,
making a walk of 1800 feet in leugtb.
From this there are to be broad
aisles through which people can pass
easily to aud from their seats.
The decoration of the building iu
the interior will be elaborate and ex
tensive, particular attention being
paid to each State. Comfort,
strength and capacity have been the
considerations looked to in the plan
of the. building. Over. ( 8,000,000
feet of, lumber will bereqnired for its
construction. The Common has been
suggested as the most appropriate
site for the building, this however is
Animal Vaccination and its Advan-
We copy from ..the Public Health,
a new London medical journal, the
following article on animal vaccina
tion. In consideration of the pres
ence in onr midst of variola, says tbe
California Medical Gazelle, this arti
cle . may prov interesting. The
question of animal vaccination is ex
citing a great deal of interest in the
medical circles of London, and the
present epidemic may develop facts
ia reference to the protective influ-
I ence of previous vaccination when the
matter was derived from the subject,
which may lead us to adopt tbe sug
gestions given by Dr. Ballard in the
following article, as the means of
more effectually guarding against the
recurrence of this horrible malady :
By Edward Ballard. 31. D., Medical Officer
of Health Jor Islington.
I had recently the pleasure of
opening a conversation at the Metro
politan Association of Medical Offi
cers of Heahh upon the subject of
animal vaccination, when great inter
est was manifested by those present,
and a desire has since been expressed
that ray remarks should be commit
ted to' paper. To those who had not
kept up their reading of foreign
journals, arid of the debates in the
Irench Academy, the facts put forth
were new. I myself cannot conceal
my opinion that the practice of ani
mal vaccination is one which at any
rate deserves serious consideration on
this side of the Channel, although I
do not concur in regarding all the
arguments adduced in favor of it as
possessed of ths full force which has
elsewhere been assigned to them. It
is the fate of nearly every new pro
posal in practical medicine to meet
with enthusiastic supporters on the
one side, and with equally obstinate
detractors on the other, and the final
result of the clashing of minds is,
that the truth is found to be some
where between the extreme opinions.
The subject of animal vaccination has
been no exception to this rule.
When in Paris, last summer, facil
ities were kindly afforded me by M.
Depnul, the " Directecr de Vaccine,"
and by my friend, M. Chambon. who,
with M. Lanoix, is actively engaged
in the work, on behalf of the acade
mies,to become practically acquainted
with the procedure. The Interna
tional Medical Congress was in scs
sion ; the exhibition had its attrac
tious, and I had a very few days at
my disposal, but I had previously de
termined to supplement my reading
upon a matter which interested me
by some ocular demonstration.
Shortly after the introduction of
vaccination into Italy, Troja, of
Naples, conceived the idea of taking
the vaccine virus from tlie cow for
the purpose of human vaccination,
the animal having been inoculated
from the human subject. This pro
cedure is that which we commonly
know as retro vaccination. On the
death of Troja, Galbiati carried on
the same practice in the teeth of
great opposition, and when 'he died
he was succeeded by his pupil, M.
Negri, to whom we owe the practice
of animal vaccination as it is utidcra
stood now. This gentleman has pre
sided over animal vaccination in
Naples for the last twenty-four years,
and three times during this period he
has obtained a new supply of lymph
-from cases of natural cow pox, on
each occasion maintaining the supply
by an uninterrupted succession of
inoculations from animal to animal.
The lymph then used for human vac
cination by Negri has never at any
period of its successive generations
passed through the human system
it has been propagated week after
week by inoculation from heifer to
heifer. At first M. Negri had to
encounter tbe same difficulties as his
predecessors ; but, at the present
time, so thoroughly have all the
prejudices upon the subject been
cleared away, that he vaccinates in
the course of a year from the heifer
3,000 or 4,000 persons, a number
nearly equal to the annual births that
take place. A few years ago M.
Lanoix, a young Parisian physician,
visited Naples and brought away
with him a vaccinated calf, and afler
introducing the practice into Lyons,
established t in Pans, under tbe
auspices of M. Depaul ; and now, iu
all tbe vaccinations of foundlings, Sco,.,
performed under the direction of the
Academy, virus from the calf alone
is used, and, it 13 this alone, as I un
derstand, that is now transmitted in
tabes into the provinces.

The following: waif, : afloat on the
sea of reading, we clip from an ex
change. We do not know its pater
nity, but it contains some wholesome
truths and beautifully set forth : ,
Men seldom think of the great
event of death until the shadow falls
Across their own path, hiding forever
from their eyes the traces of tha
loved ones whose living smiles' were
the sunlight of their existence,-- Death
is the great antagonist of life,' aud the
cold thought of the tomb is the skel
eton of all feasts. ' We do - not want
to go through the dark valley, al
though its passage may lead "to para
dise ; and, with Charles La rub, wv
do not want to lie down in the mud
dy grave, even with kings and princes
for our bed-fellows.
But tbe fiat of catnre is inexorable.
There is no appeal of relief from th
great Jawr which dooms us to dust.
We flourish and we fade as the leaves
of the forest, and the flower that
blooms and withers in a dav has not
a frailer hold upon life than the
mightiest monarch that ever shook
the earth with his footsteps. Gener-,
ations of men r.ppear and vanish s3
the grass, and the countless multitude
that throngs the world to-day, will
to-morrow disappear as the footsteps
on the shcre.
Iu the beautiful drama cf " Ion,",
the instinct of immortality, so elo
quently uttered by the death of the
devoted Greek, f:r.ds a deep response;
in every thoughtful soul. When
about to yield his young existence -as
a sacrifice to fate, to, his beloved Cle
mantbe he replies : 1 have asked that
dreadful question of tho hills that,
look eternal of the clear stream
that flow forever of the stars among
whose field of azure my raised spirit
hath walked in glory. All were
dumb. But while I gaze upon thy.
living face, I feel that there is some-,
thing in the love that mantles through,
its beauty that cannot wholly perish..
We shall meet again, Clemanthe, we
shall meet again !
Public interest is rnpidiy center
ing on the postal telegraph reform..
That the movement for cheap tele
graphing will very soon assume prac
tical shape, we may now take for
granted. It is one of those things -which
only need agitation to insure
their triumph. The struggle for and
against a free system of electiic com
munication is like a war involving,
slavery. The issue can be but one
way. The people are inovinp; against
a class privilege, a monopoly, and the',
result cannot be doubtful. Wherever'
for the last fifty years in this country.,
the people have intcll:gently moved
against a close privilege, whether of
class or c iste, or money the ob
noxious class or corporation or power
has gone down. All that is needed,
now by the friends of a cheap and
open telegraph is aggressive discus-:
sion. Let them lead the attack, and
in their business houses, on the street,
and through the press, agitate the
subject until they make telegrams as
common as letters, and thus take one
step further toward patting the poor
man on an equality with the, rich, and
giving labor and struggling .energy
and enterprise an equal chance with,
opulent capital. And iu this restless .
and uhflagging discussion there are
two points which should be continually
pushed and never allowed to drop
out of sight, vi: ; ...
That the old aud expensive system.
has proved a failure, and that every
argument against the national admin
istration of the telegraph lines holds
equally good against the national ad
ministration vj the railroad and stage .
lines. They are both parts of ony
postal or mail system.
