NEW PUBLICATIONS. “The Atlantic,” for August, will be published on Friday. Hawthorne’s romance, “Septlmlus Felton,” comes to an end—an end as grim as its beginning. The “Elixir of Life” is concocted; all its ingredients are harmonized into something potent and substantial ; Septlmlus revels in tile thought of what he will do, century after century of his Immortal existence on earth; and, among other projects, he proposes to devote a trifling number of years, say a hundred, to being thoroughly wicked, and thus to gain all the experience which crime can teach; but It turns out that the elixir Is a deadly poison, of which Sybil and Doctor Portsoaken have supplied the materials. Sybil wishes to revenge her lover’s death; but, at tho culminating moment she discovers that she loves Septimes more than she loved Cyril Norton, drinks the poison herself, and then, as Septlmlus eagerly holds out his hand to receive tho goblet, she “deliberately lets it fall upon the hearth, where It shivered into fragments, and the bright, cold water of immortality was all spilt, shedding its strange fragrance around.” The second and concluding part of Mr. .John A. Bodes’ answer to the question “Why Semmes of tho Alabama was not Tried?” is even more interesting than the first, and is a real addition to the history of our great civil war. Thew is one curious illustration in the article of the conflict of evidence, common In courts of law', between honest eye-witnesses of the same fact or event. The question came up whether Seinmos perfidiously obtained and abused a cessation of the engagement between the Kenrsarge and the Alabama. There was no competent evidence that ho had so done. Mr. Belles says, that to settle this point— “The Secretary of the Navy summoned to Washington seven of the o til ce rf of the Kearsarge, namely, Captain Winslow, and Mr. Hartwell, his clerk; Ex-ecutlve-Oflicer Thornton; Acting-Masters Stoddard and Wheeler; Boatswain Walton, and Slgnal-Quar-ter-Master Saunders. They came in obedience to this order, and I interrogated them a1! separately and with great care, recording their statements, and, after record, fonding aloud to them what I had written, and asking them to suggest corrections or alterations, to make their narrative complete. ••That examination was very surprising In its progress aud in its conclusion. The seven statement* were not only Irreconcilably at variance with each other on many leading l*dr ta, hut were severalty so confused and contradictory as to show that, in the heat, smoke, confusion, and excitement of battle, the perceptions of these men and their recollections were obscured and distracted. They did not furnish any safe material to lie used In any prosecution as against the accused, but left upon my mind two distinct convictions, namely, first, that no perfidious atuinpt of tho Alabama to procure a cessation of hostilities on the {art of the Kearsarge was provable by these witnesses; and, second, that no such attempt was in fact made. Honest and truthful as these men doubtless were, their testimony could not be relied upon to supjiort any charge or specification against Semmes. Some of them saw the Alabama’s flag come down three times, some twice, and some only once, before the tiring ceased on both sides. Some saw two white flags, and some saw but one. Some said that one of the Alabama’s guns was fired after the Kearsarge ceased lier fire, some said two, and some said none at ail. In short, the hour of the light was one of theme occasions when no man is so cool os to obaervc attentively and remember clearly; and in regard to which countless differences of detail will be found In the narratives of several witnesses, each and all of whom are honest and truthful and all of whom hail equal opi>ortunitics of observation.” Who can doubt, after this statement, that persons w ho are required to investigate facts judicially, have a hard task to perform? Among the pleasantest papers in tho number is that of Mrs. Hallowell, entitled “A Quaker Woman.” It shows an interior knowledge of Quakerism, and is as full of sagacity as kindliness. The way tiffs sect has solved the problem of pauimrism, as far as regards “Friends,” by applying to It the principles of the Christian religion, is well illustrated in the following paragraph: “No one ever saw a Quaker beggar, and no one had ever opportunity to relieve a Quaker from i»ecuniary distress. The inquisitorial Income tax is anticipated by the freemasonry of tile ‘Friends,’ and domiciliary visits are frequent among them. Each member is taxed, heavily or lightly, as Ills circumstances permit, for the general fund; and from this fund, in the most delicate way, the wants of the needy iii the society are supplied. All is done so quietly, that few except the dispensers and the recipients of the charity know anything about It. The apostolic injunction to bear one another’s burdens is faithfully and ungrudgingly carried out; and, indeed, some of the shining lights of the society have been in tileir threadbare circumstances thus generously cloaked by this proud esprit de corpi.” Mrs. Hallowell thinks that the traditions and discipline ut the Quakers, “genial as they are for womanly growth and grace, are not so favorable for the dovel-opement of a man’s character.” Tho Pagan vigor, shut out trorn the ordinary sports, pastimes and excitements of men, such as boating, boxing, and the like, is all expended in making money. The young “Friend’* of the masculine gender, is apt to lose the fibre of essential manhood. He can trade but he cannot fight. He has not the grand generosities of manly character. He Is dwarfed on one side of his natural inst incts, which impels to strife, and is stimulated on that other side, which impels to gain; but bargaining is as little Christian as fighting. In our green boyhood, we hoard a sermon by Dr. Walker, on religious comprehensiveness, In which he opposed tile founding of sects on particular texts of Scripture. One sentence, after a lapse of forty years, still sticks in our memory. “Those excellent persons’” he said, “who emphasize so strongly the Injunction to turn tile other cheek to the ruffian who has already smitten one, are not famous for obeying that other Injunction, which tells us to ‘take no heed of the morrow.’ ” Mrs. Hallowell practically admits that the Quaker men are inferior to the Quaker women. We quote her exquisite description of tho Quaker “sister of charity■ “Quakerism seems to blossom ami attain it* bright consummate flower in the mature woman, lier large liberty of thought and action, the protection of her distinctive garb which enables her to penetrate by night or day dens trad hovels where another woman would meet only danger and Insult, haye broadened her walk in life aud given full play to hor sympathies and every impulse of benevolence. A Quaker bonnet is indeed an (egis under which the most defiant Woman’* Rights have walked demurely, unsuspected in all these years; aud it* wearer is at once the exponent aud the forerunner of the sixteenth amendment. Her convcnhtlon, debarred of dress and dancing gossip, seeks naturally a graver level, and with husband and sons she takes counsel of the interests and needs of her time. Tho Womau'e Me<.leal College takes refuge under the broad brims of Quaker managers, aud every Quakeress is a preacher by natural right anointed from on high.” Mr. Part on, In hi* series of admirable articles on the times, character and influence of .Jefferson, picture* him in this number a* “Governor of Virginia.” The absence of Oochunatiun in treating subjects which are the themes of American declaimers,—a spec Jal characteristic of Mr. Parton’s mind and tho source of his popularity,—is evident on every page of this well considered pa (Mir. When tho articles are published In a volume, we shall have the best and truest of all biographies of Jefferson. The cool, hard common sense of the writer will dispel all the illusions respecting Jefferson, and exhibit bim os he was in his daily Ufo, in his character, principles and alms. We shall have a man In the place of a superstition. Jefferson is effn now quoted as a kind of political Buddha or Mahomet, whose word is law; Mr. Parton reduces him to tho stature of an ordinary great man-Jefferson will, we think, gain by a process which reconciles him to the intelligence of fits most bigoted opponents. Among the stories of this number of the Atlantic we would particularly call attention to Aldrich’s delicious “Rivermouth Romance.” It Is decidedly “low” in subject; but It humorously illustrates tho superiority of Irish women to Irish mon. The heroine is an Irish domestic, aged forty. She marries a fine, young, reckless, Ignorant, good-for-nothing Irishman, ago I twenty-two, who wastes In drunkenness and debauchery all her bani won gains, and then leaves her to gain lier subsistence by the kitchen drudgery, to which she has been accustomed from her youth, but from which sho had a right to suppose her husband would relieve her. Tho story would furnish manv texts for essays and sermons, which we lack space to “improve.” The “Poet at the Breakfast Table” Is, as usual very keen, observant, audacious and brilliant. As to the iK>ems, which are generally good, we may say a word for Trowbridge’* “Author’s Night.” It is a bright, picturesque, pathetic anil humorous representation of stage life, and It is done In a metre which seems to scorn all bounds, but still obeys laws of its own. Here is a specimen :— The orchestra leader takes his place; Horn and serpent and oboe follow, Violin and violoncello, Trombone, trumjtet, aud double-bass. A turning of musle-leaves begins, With a thrumming and screwing of violins; Then the leader waves his I tow. and—crash! Kettle-drum rattles aud cymbals elfish, Arui brass and strings and keen triangle, And high-keyed piccolo, piercing and pure, Their many-colored chords entangle, Weaving tho wild, proud overture.” A new poet, Mary E. C. Wyeth, contributes to the number the following suggestive jtoem:— MARGUERITE. I was but the village weaver’s girl, He only the hireling of a churl; But into our lives there dropped a pearl. He drove the kino by meadow and dale, And searched the hollows in every vale, For a flower of love, to tell the tale. A spring-time daisy, waxen white, Lay on my breast when fell the night, And the stars shone down with a tender light. Ho to the plough, and I to the loom,— Tilling anil toiling;—yet love may bloom, And fill oar hearts with its sweet perfume. Heart of mine, I have waited long; Life and love are a poet’s song; Life is fleeting, but love is strong. ’Twas lonely waiting, but God knew best; Lay me now by my love to rest, A spring-time daisy upon my breast. THE DRAMA. Mr. Ling. Look, who gratified himself and delighted thousands at the Howard Athenaeum during the past season by swallowing eggs, shells and all, and poking a sword down his throat without the slightest fear of consequences, or a due regard for the tit. less of tilings, ba* been astonishing the New Yorker* with his rare •esophagal accomplishments. The Tribune Is overwhelmed by the magnitude of the gifts possessed by this Teutonic Chinaman, and is lost iu admiration upon the voracious fondness for hardware manifested by this phenomenon. It says: “This gentleman’* pleasure is to come into a public place and stick a sword down his gullet. The spectacle that he thua present* is very horrid; but whether he actually swallows tho sword or only appears to swallow it, is an open question, and maid featly It is one too momentous to be lightly resolved.

Every night and every Wednesday and Saturday afternoon, on the contrary, he purposes to gulp more small arms, for the comfort of bis own maw and the edification of whatever sight-seers may feel an interest in this form of human rapacity.” A new piece called the “Red Forge.” by Mr. Charles Osborne, has been played at the Gaiety Theatre, London, with great success. In the first act we are introduced to the forge of Tubal Wright, a blacksmith, who, having a self-denying stomach, as he liimtelf informs us, is able to live comfortably upon the (canty earnings of a village smithy. His life and labors are cheered by the smiling face* and loving hearts of his wife Peggy and hi* sister Martha. This Martha, by her pretty face and winning manners, has attracted the attention aud has gained the love of a handsome young farmer of the neighborhood, by name Martin Beck. But Martha has made a solemn promise to lier motlier on her dying bed never to marry without Tubal’* consent, and this consent Martin readily obtain* when the blacksmith ha* discovered that hi* heart is in Ute right place and that Murtlia’s happiness will be safe in hts hand*. But when all looks smiling, and everybody is happy, we learn that a new agent to the estate ha* been appointed, and that, Tubal’* rent being in arrear, there is a likelihood of his being thrust out of house aud home. Martin comes to the rescue, but he, too, falls into trouble, and, with ruin staring Ulm in the face, lie determines to seek in tuff It. taut land the happiness denied him in this. But then, after Tubal has administered a sound drubbing to the village schoolmaster, Mr. Wilkins, there comes upon the scene a prim old lawyer, who brings the welcome intelligence that Tubal I* the heir to EOD,OOO. 'Hie bluckf-mitb, as he bears till* news, is at work upon a horseshoe. He stops to listen with gapiug mouth aud eager ears to Ute good news; then he hummers again; then he calls Peggy; then Martha; then Martin; then his little protege, Gussy; and upon the astonished group, with the joyous blacksmith alternately singing, laughing, hammering, and , shouting “sixty thousand pound*,” the curtain falls. I In the second act we find that wealth has proved a curse to Tubal. He has a tine house, fine clothe*, j and plenty of money. But he ha* become the victim of drink, aud, with the rascally schoolmaster for a companion, be s|*nd* most of the time in the ale- I house. For Martin he has acquired a great dislike, for it ie he who tells him the unpalatable truth that I he is a drunkard and a fool. Tubal has withdrawn bi* congest to Martha’s marriage, aud seems intent 1 on making himself and everybody else supremely [ miserable. After witnessing his insufferable boggishness at home, we see him in his cups abroad, aud at j the inn near the old mill stream we hare a realisation of the scene too often to be found in our streets, the wife beseeching the drunken husband to aceow-] any her home. But Tubal has his evil genius, the schoolmaster, by his side, and poor, heartbroken Peggy, who sighs for the happiness of the olden time, is driven away with an oath. Tubal row von ta his rage upon his compaa- i ion, aud, finally left alone, he is encountered by Martin. who has sought him once more to try to gain his consent to his union with Martha. But Tubal is ob- ’ durst*; the ’•drunkard and the fool” taunt Is cast In the young farmer’s teeth, and, after angry words ; have pissed between them, Martin reveals the iteslgu of binits lf and Martha to wed in spite of alt objee- J dons. This so enrages the aura, who Is alreody'half mad with driuk, that he pursues the young farmer as \ he crosses the mill stream, and beating him about the bead with a stick, burl* him into the swift ruuning ! waters below. Thus ends aet the second. VV boil the i current»gain rises we discover Tubal asteep on a ! Urich near the old forge, in his dream* be rave* of ‘ the dreadful scene In which be has been so recently the principal actor. When he awakes we find that his memory has failed him, and when Peggy comes In search of him he linmagine* himself still a blacksmith, and treats the events of the past yearns all adream. Tubal’* Illusion is encourager! for some reason not apparent, and. mad as he evidently is, be is permitted to wander about alone, and to do the most extraordinary things. But he Is awakened from bis delusion by the schoolmaster, who was a witness of the attack upon Martin, and who now demands hush money; but, after Peggy has undergone a long process of mental torture, and after Tubal has confessed to the horrified Martha that he has killed hor lover, Martin himself turns up. Then Tubal, who at once recovers under the influence of so joyful a sight, hugs the young farmer, and gives to him the hand of Martha, who also has to undergo any amount of hugging; he hugs Peggy, ho lings Gussy, he hugs tho not always civil lawyer’s clerk, and he hugs the lawyer, Cyrus Kite, who Aret brought him news of his wealth, but who now brings intelligence that there has been a mistake, and that the fortune lielongs to little Gussy. Tubal welcomes this news, and, mindful of tho happy times spent at his old forge, and of the misery money brought in its train, be, with acheerful heart,determines once more to swing the sledge, and to make the anvil ring with bread-winning music.

There is more than a mere similarity of story; in the music itself Beethoven has been Inspired by Cherubini just as Cherubini was inspired by Mozart: there is no plagiarism, but there are those coincidences into which men of genius /all through sympathy in ideas. When we remember the failure of Beethoven’s symphonies, of Weber’s ‘Der Freischutz,’ of Meyerbeer’s ‘Robert ie liable,’ when first produced here, we are not at all disheartened that the ‘Deux Joumdes' has not been at first appreciated here by the fashionable supporters of Italian opera; but, at all events, such a masterpiece ought not to have been produced at a period of the season when the director has to count upon not losing receipts.” THE FINE ARTS. MUSICAL. Signor Brlgiioli has been singing in concert In Loudon with Miss Nilsson and Mr. Sant ley. Miss Matilda Philli;*, a younger sister of tho favorite American contralto, was to make her debut In “Cenerentola” at Milan on the 22d of June. M. Michel Enjalliert, the Nestor of French organist*, died recently at Yxeuil, Haute Saone, aged ninety-two. M. Enjalbert officiated as organist at the coronation of Nanoloon I. at Notre Dame. The Athemeum gives the following Interesting details regarding Meyerbeer’s “Huguenots:” In any record of Meyerbeer’s career, and in any analysis of his works, the history of the composition, progress and performance of " Huguenots” would form almost a volume of Itself, so curious and varied is the story. It was tho second of the masterpieces he produced at the Grand Opera iii Paris, and it was first performed on the 29th of February, 1830. Iii this production tho composer carried out still further the principles he had adopted in “Robert lo Diablo,” ami revolutionized, so to sjieak, the routine modus operandi in the creations of the lyric drama. The great alin of Meyerbeer wa* to individualize in notation lits chief characters, to pre-rent imagery strongly suggestive of the epoch, to employ choral agency us a powerful aid for effect, and to infuse such a local coloring into the score that the mind’s eye, as well as tho ear, could conjure ui» the scene and incidents. That Meyerbeer fully succeeded In his task bas been as signally proved by the “Huguenots” a* by “ Robert Ie Diablo.” Even iii Frot^ytho “ Huguenots” had a hard fight for existence; hut it* opponents wore foiled by the sublime fourth act, so electrical in its ensemble, as regards the blessing of the daggers; and the concluding duet between Raoul aud Valentine silenced even tho most fanatic adherents of the Italian school, so intensely passionate is its tone, so exquisitely melodious are Its themes. The production of the “Huguenots” in tho Italian adaptation, at the Royal Italian Opera, met with the most strenuous opjiosition from what used to lie called, in the foyer, “ tho Italian family.” During the rehearsals at Covent Garden the music was ridiculed,—it wa# called M unique Chlnoise,—there vias no end to the Jokes, which concealed, however, a deeper purpose, namely, that Meyerbeer's work should not be heard in Loudon. Madame Viardot was In despair, so bitter were the enemies who feared her genius ; but fortunately for art, and fortunately, too, for the fortunes of the theatre, a Royal command settled tho question. But for the Queen and tho late Prince Consort expressing their desire that Meyerbeer’s “Huguenots” should be given on the occasion of their state visit to Co-vent Garden Theatre, in 1848, the work In all probability would never have been represented. Tile triumph was decisive. Another curious incident was, that Signor Mario being ill ouc night, Raoul was undertaken by M. Roger, who sang tho tho part in French, and Ma*lame Viardot adopted the same language, in order to help her colleague, the other artists singing iii Italian. It was M. Roger’s earnest embodiment of the “ Huguenot” noble, especially in the Septuor of the Duel, that prompted Signor Mario to take a more vigorous view of tho chareter than he had previously done. Cherubini’s “Lcb Deux Jouniees” has been the cause of much contradictory criticism In London, where it was lately produced. The Athenaeum say*: “Thursday, tho 20th of June, 1872, will be a memorable day iii the history of the lyric drama iii this country, for it fully established tile legitimate claims of Cherubini to be enrolled in the list of composers who have left, us legacies for posterity, masterpieces. Rarely, indeed, has such an assemblage of artists and amateurs been gathered In any opera house as was present at Drury I .Urie Theatre, lo listen to the ltaliau adaptation of ‘Los Deux Jouniees.’ The expressions of admiration on the part of Hie public were palpable and audible enough; and in tire corridors, and in the foyer, ordinarily cold and self-possessed musicians declared their enthusiastic appreciation of the work, of the masterly accompaniments of Sir Michael Costa for the dialogue and action, and of It* extraordinarily fine execution. Such an unequivocal triumph, it might be presumed, would have been followed by immediate and frequent repetitions of the opera; but the only notification, up to tin time we write, of a future represeutation, is the impressarlo’s announcement tiiat ‘due notice will be given of the next performance of Cherubini’# ojiera, “I due Glornate.’” This sine die information is continued by the language of some of our daily contemporaries, who tell their readers that the work Is a masterpiece, but it will not ‘draw,’ fashion being opposed to the story as being too simple, and to the music as tieing too learned. If such be the case, it only shows how pressing is the need of a national opera house, where, at moderate prices, graud aud classical opera can be rendered a paying investment. But wo protest emphatically against this commercial estimate of the wortlr of Cherubini’s 'Deux Journals;’ we deny the premise* oil which the conclusion has been arrived at. In the first place, the tale Is not more ‘simple’ than that of ‘Fidello.’ In the two books, the persecution aud adventures of a married couple form the mainspring of interest; the escapes of the French Count and Countess are as exciting as those of Leonora and Flore*tan—in both the devotion of a wife is vividly exemplified. What writes Picshlantl, Cherubini's Italian biographer? ‘Tile libretto was so well worked out and so interesting that Goethe regarded it as a true model.” We recorded tho opinion of Haydn and Beethoven a* to Cherubini. Now what wrote Weber in 1812 of the ‘Deux Jounces:* ‘Fancy my delight when I beheld lying upon the table of the hotel the playbill with the magic name “Armand.” I was the first person In the theatre, and planted myself in the middle of the pit, where I waited most anxiously for the tones which I knew beforehand would again elevate and inspire me. I think I anay boldly assert that “Le* Deux Jounces” la a really dramatic and classical work. Everything is calculated so aa to produce the greatest effect; all the various pieces are so much iii their proper place that you can neither omit one nor make any addition to them. The opera displays a pleasing richness of melody, vigorous declamation and all-striking truth in tile treatment of the situations, ever new, ever seen, aud retained with pleasure. We can never see enough of such masterpiece*.’ In the course of an admirable criticism, the London Daily Telegraph makes the following remarks upon the subject of art collections, which may not prove unprofitable now that we are on the eve of forming an Art Mnsenm: “And if we tarn to tho venerable establishment in Bloomsbury, can it be said (hat the British Museum has ever yet become, in the fullest sense of the term, popular? We are afraid it cannot. In the old days, when Montagu House lodged the major part of the collection of Sir Hana Sl<>ane, a visit to the museum was not devoid of entertainment. Packed pell-mell in rooms, on the ceilings of which sprawled the saints of Verrio and La-guerre, or of their later imitators, was a heterogeneous accumulation of rarities. Tile statue of Sir Joseph Banks nestled, like the figure of Shera in Noah’s ark, between the legs of a giraffe; a stuffed hippopotamus challenged Inspection with the remains of the original Magna Charta, rescued from a fire, but shrivelled up Into a wrinkled ball. The Portland vase was flanked by a model of the line-of-battle ship Victory; and the mummies of several Ptolemies invited comparison with apocryphal portraits of Duns Scolds, Oliver Cromwell, and “leviathan” Hobbes. Long since, tiffs gigantic old curiosity shop, prodigiously enlarged, has been swept and garnished, ami its contents symmetrically distributed through vast, clean, airy, cheerful saloons. It# rarities are, iu many instances, extremely beautiful, aud, to the arcbteolo-gisf, the naturalist, the geologist, exceedingly edifying; but to the ordinary holiday-making visitor we are very much afraid that the precious collection, as a whole, is still somewhat wearisome. Mummy eases and mummies, eveu in the dustiest condition of decay, pall at last upon the taste; and tho pilgrim Iii quest of recreation derives but meagre consolation from the assurance that tho Elgin Marbles comprise tho. purest extant models of human and equine form, and that to their removal from tim Parthenon to this country we owe the modern revival of the fine arts In England. Tile pilgrim too often yawn*. He sees nothin* but a mimlier of battered stone effigies, runny wit boat leg* or arms, and some without heads, and an interminable procession of horses without Haddie* or bridles, stuck against a wall. What does it matter to him if these figures are by Phidias, and so many thousand year* old? And yet, secluded from the general view, the enormous building in Great Kassel) street teems with objects, the exposition of which might give the Museum Hint inestimable charm which it now lacks—the charm of variety. Some dim perception of the cardinal shortcoming of the collection may have moved the trustees, when they threw open the saloons of the king’s library, and exhibited under glass some of the rarest of the bloek-book#, the illuminated mls-luffs, and the autographs of royal or illustrious personages in their possession. But what are these among so many ? The Museum can boast of a collection of engravings and drawings, and a cabinet of medals, coins and incised jems, rivalling, if not surpassing, in richness and scarcity tho chalcographic and numismatic treasures (rf the Louvre, the Bibliotheque Nation ale and the Vatican; yet, from the prevalence of some extraordinary prejudice on the part of the Museum authorities, the print-rooru is a place to whieh only a few artist# and antiquaries are permitted to penetrate, while even greater difficulty la experienced in obtaining admi—ton to the gallery of coins aud metlal#.” CURRENT NOTES.
