With lingering glints of gold and ted '1 ho waiting autumn woods nrogruy : And in the deep bine overhead 'Hie sun shines clear eud soft to-dt >. The late October winds me bland, Their voices whisper low and sweet; While far away the bine hills stand With valley vapors round their feet. Across the nzuro of the sky The milky cloud-shades wandering sail, {Southward the roving song birds fly, And from the stubble pipes the quail. Along the winding path we go, Through tiehl in which the aster nods ; And over breezy slopes where grow 1 lie yellow-painted golden rods. Along the path hy field and hill, With many a lightly spoken jest, Pa*t golden orchard roves where still The robin shows his crimson breast. L'i.til at last the woods we gain, And there with shout and crashing sound We beat the boughs till downward ram The ripened mils upon the ground. All other sounds around are hushed, There is no note of any bird ; But. thro’ these aisles with autumn flushed, Our voices far and wide are heard. With lingering glints of gold and red The waning autumn woods are grav, And though tin* summer months are fled, Our hearts make summer of to day. [From ttic N. Y. Sun. The announcement of the death of Tliumus Sully, the distinguished histori cal painter—at least lie was so esteemed half a century ago—brings a curious bit of history that may now he related with out indiscretion. It was while Mr. Web ster was Secretary of State, soon after the death of President Harrison, that the St. George’s Society of Philadelphia obtained the gracious promise of Queen Victoria to sit for her portrait, and Mr. Sulley was engaged to paint the likeness. And lie accordingly made his arrangements to proceed to England for that purpose. Mr Everett was our minister to the Court of St. James’s, and Mr, Sully had letters to him from Mr. AVebster, and it is believed from President Tyler as well. The British Minister ut Washington wrote to the Pre mier, and nothing of a formal and official character was omitted that promised to further the views of Mr. Sully. The daughter of the painter, and accomplished and charming young lady, was to accom pany her father, partly for the pleasure on the trip, but ehielly with a view to relieve the Queen from the drudgery of repeated ly sittings to complete the picture, espe cially with reference to the drapery, if which other person could easily represent her Majesty. Just before the sailing of the party a well-known lady then residing in Phila delphia, an actress, public reader, and au thor, calling to take leave of Miss Sully, inquired if her father had all the letters necessary to facilitate his enterprise iu London. On being informed thut he had ample letters of introduction to conspicu ous and influential gentlemen near the British Government, she remarked thut these might be deemed sufficient, but sometimes a little personal interest was found to be more cfflauacions than the of ficial influence of the most exalted per sonages. She would therefore, she said, give Miss Sully a noto to Sir Francis Egerton, who held a household. In case of any obstruction or embarrassment being en countered by Mr. Sully,and he found it diffi cult to procure an audience of tire (iuecu, she was to send tire note with her card to Sir Francis and await the result. The proff er was gladly accepted. The painter and his daughter duly arrived in Lon don, the letters and crcdentals were delivered and acknowledged, and Lord Melborne, Mr. Everett our Sesretary of Legation sent their eards, with all proper ceremony. Days weeks, and nearly a month passed away, and Mr. Sully had neither seen nor heard from the (juccn. He became impatient and uneasy, but there was nothing to he done. lie called upon Mr. Everett, and left his card with the Prime Minister, hut no progress was made. At this juncture the letter to Sir Francis occurred to Miss Sully, and with her father’s approbation it was sent him, witii the young lady’s card. He called the fol lowing day, arranged that the artist and his daughter should have an audience of her Majesty immediately, and before the end of the week sbe gave Mr. Sully a sit ting, and every facility was afforded him to complete the picture. We presume It is still in the posseseion of the St. George’s Society, where it ha- always been regarded as a very finished production. If the artist and his daughter had been left to the considerate attention of the high functionaries of the British Government, even if it find been supplemented by the formal civilities of the whole American Legislation, it may be doubted whether the portrait would ever have been painted Blainard’s Musical World, for Novem vember fully sustains its high reputation as a literary and artistic journal of the first rank, and is a welcome addition to our table. It contains more than the usual amount of fresh, spicy, pointed articles on musical subjects. The editorial “ Women and Music” is a very readable and suggestive article. Karl Merz continues his aide and in teresting letters on musical subjects, and gives a large amount of valuable informa tion and good sound advice in each issue. “Our Letter Box,” the editor's special column for the answer of musical ques tions is, as usual, filled with very instruc tive matter. This department alone is worth many limes tire subscription price of the paper. This number contains three beautiful pieces of music. “My Own Bright Is land Home,” a song and chorus of uaus ual excellence ; "Too Late, too late, Ye cannot enter' now Miss Lindsay’s fa mous sacred song, and "Mountain Sylph Schottische,” one of the most sparkling compositions of the talented Charles Kinke] Subscription price SI.OO a year.
