(From the Boston Traveller.}
BY EEV. S. T. SMITH, IX I>. —AUTHOR OF “AMERICA.”
Mute is his eloquence,—that silver tongue.
On whose sweet accents crowds admiring hung,
Whose fitting words in bounteous beaut}’ fell
On ear and heart, that owned the witching spell,
W r hose graceful cadence tides of feeling woke,
As if from heaven some loving angel spoke,—
Nou r lies in silence, like a harp unstrung,—
Its warbling music, on the breezes flung,
Still breathes in living echoes on the air,
As if the master-spirit lingered there.
Who can do justice to so great a name ?
Who speak in worthv words his matchless fame?
In varied learning brilliaut and profound,
In taste unrivalled, and in judgment sound ;
Above ambition’s mean and shufliing ai ts.
Too great to purchase power at public marts :
In life so pure, in motive so unstained,
He trod with honor all the heights he gained ;
His aims so worthy, and his powers so rare,
If first he stood, the people placed him there.
As stands a shaft on some far reaching plain,
Rising o’er cottage roofs and waving grain.
Catching the earliest morning’s crimson streams
And latest splendor of the evening beams.
Towering o’er all, it meets the distant sight, .
And bathes its summit in the peerless light,
So, in his country. In his age, alone,—
Second he seemed to none but Washington.
When treason trod the stage with guilty stride,
He for his conntry spoke with manly pride;
Consoled the timid, made the fainting strong,
Stood for the right, and frowned, upon the wrong;
As some brave soldior waves his flag on high,
And points his comrades do, —or die,—
Then plants the banner on the topmost height.
Borne through the fiercest whirlwind of the right,
Himself forgetting,—eager but to see
His nation’s struggle crowned by victory.—
So toiled in love,—so stood, till evening set,
The ripe, the brave, immortal Everett.' ’
Well at his funeral pomp did wreaths of green
Adorn the places where tiis life had been ;
Ana garlands deck, with sw et and cheerful
The onening gateway to his honored tomb.
The full-blown flowers, of pure and spotless
Symbols of finished life, a life upright;
The bursting buds, of fresh and bright renown,
Wreathed o’er his name tike an immortal crown ;
Each fragrant blossom round the good and brave,
Telling how virtue lived beyond the grave
The martial dirge, with deep and solemn strain,
Fell on the ear as falls the gentle rain, *
Breathing o’er troubled hearts a sweet repose,
And mingled organ-notes prolonged the close ;
As if the.gift to melody were given
To set forth ending earth and opening heaven.
So when the Christian parts from earth and time,
Soaring from toil and pain to joys sublime,
The flickering light of such a world as this
Melts in the splendor of the world of bliss;
The dimming scenes of mortal beauty fade,
.And glorious visions rise, that know no shade,
And sweet-voiced harmony* to mortals given,
Is lost in music such as rings in heaven.-
The eccentric genius. Brick Pomeroy, writes
upon a used-up paper collar, the following gro
O paper collar!
Kecks to my throat I love thee.
Once so white, and pure like I is,
iNow creased and wrinkled muchly
Who made you, and liow came he to ?
Goblin damned, or a foolscap ?
I would write to thee, worn out p. c.
ou come as high as linen—and half a inch more
It is easy to work a button-hole in thee
A penknife, an old nail will do it;
And though thee ait paper
I’ve seen rhy two ends meet,
I wish you were a girl’s arm,
How I’d keep thee around my neck,
And write glad to do it—you bet!
Paper collar you can’t go to church to-morrow
For you have no pew rity,
P. C. youre played.
The Crown Jewels.— We find the fol
lowing in a letter from Hanover, of De
cember li) : ’‘The--hearts of the King and
royal family of this country have been
much rejoiced by intelligence which has
• just reached them through the Hanove
rian Minister at the Court of St. James,
that the long dispute between the King
of Hanover and. the Queen of England
respecting the right ol certain jewels of
enormous value in the possession of the
Sovereign of England, and forming no
inconsiderable portion ol|what have been
decided in favor of Hanover. Many of
are no doubt aware that
when the kingdom of Hanover was
severed from the united kingdom by the
accession ot Queen Victoria to the throne
a claim was made by the late King of
Hanover, formerly the Duke of Cumber-
to nearly the whole of the jewels
hsuaily worn on State occasions by the
English sovereign, on the ground that
part ot them, which had been taken over
io England by George J, belonged in
alienably to the crown of Hanover, and
that the remainder had been purchased
by George 111, out of his private purse,
and hsd been left by him and his Oueen
Charlotte to the royal family of Han
‘*As the jewels thus claimed are sup
posed to tic worth considerably more
than 1,000.000 a single stone
having cost nearly -•?,< >' 0 pounds, they
were not to be relinquished without a
struggle; and lam assured that ever}'
possible expedient was resorted to'in
England to baffle the claimant. Ulti
mately, in the lifetime of „he late King,
the importunity oi the Hanoverian Min
istry of the day to consent that (he rights
of the two sovereigns should be submit
ted to a commission composed of three
English judges; but the proceedings of
the commission were so ingeniously pro
tracted tnat all the commissioners died
without arriving at any decision • and
until Lord Clarendon received the seals
of the British Foreign Office, all the ef
forts of the Court of Hanover to obtain
a fresh commission were in vain. Lord
Clarendon, however, seems to have per
c ived that such attempts to stifle inquiry
were unworthy of his country, tor he
consented that afresh commission should
be issued to three English judges|of the
highest eminence, who, after investiga
tion, found the Hanoverian claims to be
indisputably just, and reported in its
favor. The Court here consequently is
in high glee this Christmas, at the pros
pect of removing the crown and regalia,,
so jealously guarded in the Tower of
London, almost bodily to Hanover.”
A lady-skater in Philadelphia lately
fell upon the ice, with hands extended
to break the tall, just as a swift skater
was gliding past. He could not check
his speed, and one of liis skates cut off
three of her fingers.
