A homo ibat one dark night
And rnansit there so very late,
That ilium constant care.

To see qui erat in tbore.
Soon, caput turned its nasam round,

Oh! maximum pudorum!

Ille non potest to get out.
The key's outside the fore.
Ascendit sweet-heart nunc the stairs,
Cum festinnto pede,
Et roused paellas from their sleep,
Sed, habentnot tbedoorkey.
Then, exeitat domino,
By her tumultuous voice,
Insanns currit to the door, ' '
Et obvenit the lady.
"Furentcm place !" the master roared,
'Why spoil you thus my somnum ?
Exite from the other door,
Si rogues have locked the front one !"
Puella trisf is bung her bead,
And took her lover's manum,
Et cito from the other door
RisMsaput est irnpulsum.
Cum magno gradu redit home
Retrorsmm nunquam peeping,
Et never au?us est again,

The Career of IJarlltigame.
The Boston Advertiser thus speaks
of the late Chinese Minister :
History furnishes no parallel to the
experience of Burlingame during ths
last decade, and we shall have to turn
to the Arabian Nights to match it.
Writers on the possibilities open to
American ambition have often cited
the appearance of Franklin in his plain
suit, serene in his simplicity, at thc
glittering court of Versailles.. But
there was nothing in the history of
that shrewd, lucky Boston boy of the
last century to compare in romance and
bizarre splendor with the cool, easy,

who, losing his seat in Congrcssjby the j
vote of our North End wards, present

the oldest and greatest of nations, ac-1

Repudiation Is ts, Read This.
We copy below an article from the
Philadelphia Day on the financial sit
uation, which we commend to the at'
tcntion of the advocates of repudiation.
It says :
"With the steady decline of gold, and
more or less influencing it, ; beyond
question, comes the gratifying- intelli
gence that .our exports during the last
six wonuis very neany- Daiancea ine
imports during thf same period.- rIhi
ncany puis ine Daaance oi traae in our
favor, a condition rHgrable to financial
health and stability in values. It also
leads to the inference that our varied
industry is thriving, in spite of adverse
circumstances; and it goes to prove
that while Senators and Representa
tives have been devising methods to
correct what appears to be financial dis
temper, the laws of trade have been
quietly operating to restore equilibrium
lost durinsr the ureat convulsion. This
f:it should bo made.torjrofitthe na-
tinn bv instructing its nublic men. Not
many of them appear to be aware that
some things wut be left to the opera
tion ( of natural laws. The lesson is
watchful patience. It is by no means
certain that the laws of trade, acting
in harmony with the irrepressible en
terprise of the American people, would
not furnish a solution of the financial
problem in the shortest time cousktent
witn safety it gold nas toucueu a

time since midsummer of 1802, can the

Prominent among these causes may
be considered the repudiation ,of all
measures looking toward repudiation as
a means of cancelling the public debt.
Every attempt to rally a party ; around
tlio st.nmlarfl tif Tirnnrlintinn fine ir-
nallv failed; and Mr, 31 ungen's speech
in its favor has nowhere met with bit-
tcrer denunciation than at the hands of
leading journal ot the party to which
he belongs. The clapior for an act of
national dishonor has been confined to
a lew destructives wno aspire to tnc
leadership of the ignorant. and preju-
diced among electors, with an eye to
local political preferment. It is in-
structive to note the. mode ot paying

dleton and others of this stamp
Thc creditors of the nation have not
failed to observe the shaping of public
opinion with a calmly critical eye
There is no lonjrer any suspense rclat
ing to (he payment of the de'bt: Capi
tal, thus relieved, puts off its hesitancy,
and embarks freely into the work of
production. Not so many thousands
are wasted in "margins" by Wall St.
operators as formerly, and the release
of those thousands may have something
to do with the convalescence of an al-
most distracted industry. At the same
time we are, according to the showing
of statisticians, paying our debts and
somethins over, and are likely the score
a balance due as by foreign consumers.
Among individuals this state of affairs
would be regarded as financial prosper
ity. As a nation is an aggregation of
individuals, why should not the same

much that everybody is "at sea" on

American Girls in Europe. I

enduring and most of which will wash.
I confess that American beauty

the solid English matrons and maidens,
like 31 r. Hawthorn, and begining to
like them alonir comes a croup of my

Yankee girls I fear you do not appre

mire and envy them that Is, thc men
admire and the women envy. On the
continent they rave about them. Half
a dozen American belles.send a whole
German town distracted. It is not only
beauty and grace, but their wit, spirit,
and audacity. The ontiuc tal customs
favor their triumphs. No girl over
there dares to fay her soul is her own
-let alone her body, fehe never goes
anywhere without a chaperone ; she
never converses with a gentleman cx
cept to answer a question ; she is of
necessity insipid to the last degree. An
American girl, on thc contrary, asserts
her freedom, goes where she likes, talks
with every one she cares to talk with.
