With long checked apron and a flaxen head, With saucy nose, and round cheeks rosy red, A child plays by the door; Just where the stone step slopes into the weeds, A bit of sand she pouuds, aud wets aud kneads, As I, in days of yore. The bees and flies go humming round her face, Drawn by the yellow bread and butter trace, But never once heeds she; Bright playmates these, for which she feels no fear, As will she in some later, wiser year, When mud pies cease to be. Two brown, bare feet, with little dimpled toes, In reckless, balmy glee she upward throws, Two Buy hands she claps. With mud pie oozing through her blackened thumbs, U p to the clean white threshold boid she comes, And gaily raps and raps, And says tho wondrous mud pio is quite done, She baked it ’neath the hot tires of the sun, Beside the muddy brook: And with a chip for plate, she toddling hastes, Where mother, smiling sly, tile mud pie tastes, And hugs the cunning cook. Marie Le Baron, NEW PUBLICATIONS. Human Longevity: Its Facts and Its Fictions: an Exceedingly Entertaining Book— Select Orations of Cicero: covering the Entire Period of His Life. A peculiarly Interest ing work, is one entitled Human Ixmgevity: Its Facts and Its Fictions, which includes an inquiry tutu some of the more remarkable instances and suggestions for testing reputed cases. It is by William J. Thoms, F. S. A. Mr. Thoms says in his preface : “The object of the present volume is to examine the important question of Human Longevity from a plain coramon-senae point of view. For this purpose the ewes of Farr, Jenkins and some other reputed centenarians have been treated as any other historical facts should be treated—credited as far as they are susceptible of proof, but not otie atom beyond; while, in addition, a number of recent cases have been subjected to similar criticism.” This gives all necessary explanation of the scope and aim of the book, which is capitally written and exceedingly entertaining. The writor does not place a high degree of coufldence in the stories of old Parr, Jenkins and the old Countess of Desmond, whose respective ages are stated to have been one hundred and flfty-two, one hundred and aixty-nine, and one hundred and forty years; and it must be stated in all fairness that the arguments used by bim, and the proofs presented, go very far towards establishing his proposition that the stories related of these phenomena are entirely upochryphal. But Mr. Thoms goes still further, and aims a tremendous blow at our popular friend who is continually dying in various parts of tho country at agos varying all the way from one hundred to one hundred and twenty years. He will have uone of John Smith who sees to (cad without spectacles at the age of one hundred, and peacefully expires in full possession of all his (acuities at one hundred and four. He maintains that thoro is probably scarcely one per cent, among these confident announcements which will bear the test of a thorough investigation. He says “Those only who have undertaken such investigations can form the slightest idea of the difficulties which inquirers into the truth of statements of this kind have to encounter. It is In vain to assure the parties addressed that not the least suspicion is entertained of their good faith and truthfulness; and that all that is suspected is an unintentional error, a confusion between two parties of the same name; the applying to one party of a baptismal certificate, or some other similar piece of evidence, which relates to a totally different person. These aud similar assurances are pleaded in vain. You have doubted the truth of their statements—statements which they know to be true! (but how they know it they would find it difficult to explain;) and if it is determined to pursue the investigation further, it becomes necessary to apply for information and assistance in some other quarter. Yet in strange contrast with the feeling of indignation so often manifested when doubt is thrown upon any cases of supposed abnormal longevity, is the confidence and recklessness with which the most startling announcements of such cases are given to the world, without the least preliminary inquiry, and often without a particle of foundation.” With this preamble, Mr. Thoms proceeds to demolish a number of familiar cases with the greatest relish and vigor, relying upon the truth of the verse from Ecclesiastes, wbicli be bas adopted os a motto for his book: “The number of a man’s days are at most one hundred years.” He will not even take monumental inscriptions as authority, and thus disposes of one who has long been looked upon as a member of the centenarian family :— “Charles Macklin, the celebrated actor, is supposed, on the authority of the monumental tablet erected to his memory in the Church of St. Paul’s, Covent Garden, to have reached the exceptional age of 107. Tbis does not tally with the account given of him iii the European Magazine, vol. xxxii., p. 317, where it is stated that his death happened on July ll. 1707, at the great age, it is supposed, of 96 years- But in spite of this, thanks no doubt to the inscribed tablet, Macklin figures as a centenarian, not only in all books relating to longevity, such as the works of Easton and Bailey, but in Cates’s excellent “Dictionary and General Biography,’ where we read ‘be died in 1797, at the patriarchal age of 107.’ But he was not 107. About the year 1859 the vestry of St. Paul’s, Covent Garden, came to a resolution, consequent upon the closing of the graveyard, to cover up the coffins laid in the vaults. In carrying out this resolution, the church-wardens came upon the coffins of Macklin and his wife—who belt remarked outlived him ten years, being only 64 when Macklin diod. She furnished, most probably, the particulate inscribed upon his coffin-plate. They are as follows: ‘Mr. Charles Macklin, Comedian, Died ii July, 1797, aged 97 years.’ Bo the name of Charles Macklin must be erased from Ute roll of centenarians.” Mr. Tboms’s book shows every sign of deep research, and an earnest enthusiasm in the discussion brought forward by him. It abounds in curious and interesting particulars. We find that mural slabs not only are laviab in the gift of additional years, as in the above cited case, but that they pilfer them as well. The following letter from the Loudon Times is given as a case in point:— The inscriptions on some mural slabs to the memory of feveral of my ancestors in a parish church in this country have lately been restored; and on a recent visit to inspect the restoration imagine my feelings on finding it recorded aa a fact, that a man, whose fourth wife survived him, det»amd this life in the lith year of bis age; 61 had been converted into ll I” From which it would appear that other reproaches are to be added to the long catalogue of them already recorded against the Integrity of tombstones. The reader will find much food for reflection, and a large fund of amusement and instruction in this volume, which though it disposes of a number of familiar acquaintances in a most summary manner must prove valuable to those for whom the question of the duration of human life has any Interest. We live in an iconoclastic age, and after seeing William Tell demolished, Nero rehabilitated, Jack the Giant Killer turned into a suu-god, familiar Nursery Rhymes proved to be Aryan myths, and Joan of Arc annihilated, we have no right to complain lf our belief in Jenkins, Old Parr, and the popular centenarian be somewhat rudely disturbed. The work is published by Scribner, Welfonl ft Armstrong, and is received by A. Williams ft Co. Select Orations qf Clicero. Messrs. Ginn & Co., No. 4 Beacon street, have issued a very handsome volume containing the Latin text of a selection of Cicero’s orations, covering the entire period of his public life. The work is prepared under the editorial superintendence of Messrs. Allens and Greenough, Is prefaced with a brief though accurate and discriminating sketch of the great orator's life, and enriched by very full and valuable notes, which fill alarge portion of the latter part of the volume. Of the many ora tit ne of Cicero which have survive I entire, numbering upwards of fifty in all, tho editors have selected ten for presentation in the present form, including an extract from that in defence of Sestius, wherein his exile and return are referred to. Among the selections are the Defence of Roscius, the Impeachment of Vorres. Pompey’# Military Command, the Conspiracy of Cataline, tho Defence of Milo, and the Fourteenth Phllipic. Each of the orations is prefaced with a succinct narrative in English of the circumstances connected with the subject, as an ald to the elucidation of the text. The English notes upon the several orations give the argument of each and contain very full, critical remarks by the editors. Here are to be found many valuable suggestions as to the orator’s forms of expression, construction of sentences aud use of words, which must prove ot great benefit to Ute Latin scholar. The volume appears to be eminently adapted, both in the selection of matter and the order of arrangement, for the use of student* of the language, and for those who would cultivate the graces of oratory. The style of typography is well chosen for directing attention to important points in the critical notes upon the text, and the whole is accompanied with a useful alphabetical index of subjects referred to in the orations and accompanying notes.    ___________ MUSIC ANI) THE DRAMA.

Tim London Atheneum has the following appreciative notice of Herr von Bfiiow’s playing of Beethoven's sonata In C nduor, op. Ill: “In the playing of this most intricate production, Dr. von Billow proved that there was no exaggeration in the judgment passed by the leading critics of Germany, that he has given new life to the pianoforte compositions of Beethoven, both for the concertos with orchestra, the sonatas and other chamber compositions. Czerny thought, for some reasons, that op. Ill was a work of earlier date than the number imports; but rids notion ta not borne out by the sonata itself, which unmistakably bas the characteristics of Beethoven’s “third period,” the works which were so long pronounced to be "Incomprehensible rhapsodies.” Dr. von Billow rendered the complications of the sonata wonderfully clear; not a note was missed—for he was closely followed by some observant professors, with copy in baud, not a point remained undeveloped. He gave prominent force to all the appoggiaturas in the running passages, so much instated upon by Beethoven, following the maxim of the Bonn musician, and accelerating or slackening the tempi as the peculiar accentuation exacted. The en tire reading was earnest, sympathetic and dignified—sensibility was evinced in the tinge ring diminuendos, and power displayed in the fortes. The technical ■kill was combined with instinct and intelligence, and yet all imaginable intricacies were interpreted with seeming ease. The hall rang with the cheering at the close of the sonata, and three times was the {performer called on to appear on the orchestral platform by the vast audience, which included many leading professor of the day.
