In truth it can scarcely be said to Havn a history and furnishes but scanty materials for u Lusty sketch. As already intimated the cemetery is situate a Short distance out of the ports Planti upon a slight Eminence with a gentle slope toward the main Entrance. The grounds were purchased by voluntary subscription and Laid out under the auspices of the reformed Swiss Church in 1828. They Are now under the direction of a committee composed of Swiss German and English protestants. In consequence of the removal of the Midi Oval Walls the cemetery is now embraced within the City limits and fur ther interments arc forbidden by Law or Only permitted by Suil Crance. It is still preserved As a Public Square for the enclosing Aud beautifying of which in its pint elliptical form Tho of Florence is said to have contributed the Liberal sum of eighty thou Sand francs.

For the sucks county Gnu Etc evening notes. The season approaches when it is Well for us to take new departures. When the year be gins it often happens that people make re solves or renew with greater or less Earnest Ness those made twelve months before. There can be no harm in this. The practice is a worthy one for obedience to every Good in Ulso Means growth. Every aspiration towards bettor life is prophetic of a nobler existence. These lengthening evenings attended by aint signs of the approaching autumn whose breath has already sent its signals Cem to to like the Advent of a new year we appear to be trending upon fresh ground. Wenter a now realm. Thoughtfully should we Rwy the ground and scan the opening View. A the summer Days arc passing away we just put aside summer habits and the ways of Ummer time. As is newly Assort our Ward Obes for Tow Good and Comfort of our bodies o should we pause to consider the claims of or mental nature. It been said Liat the highest end of Man improvement. This May come in Many onus but the of nor meaning of the word comprehends the constant growth towards Perfec Ion. We need never fear going too far in u erection. Though we exhaust our energies lure would be something still in attained. We sometimes ask each other whether the world is advancing. It should be our Chiel concern to know whether we Are advancing. If we do so does the world. To know not what we May Ghlyn in culture till we try. The avenues of knowledge invite us at every turn we have but to put Forth our efforts and Gooc fruits yield to our bidding pleasant voices re Spond to our Call. Do not forget the books Liem Rabar the importance of rightly selecting them. There Are books to be skimmed says Gibbon and books to be an other English authority no less illustrious As sures us that a person who reads five hours a Day will become Learned. Read even but one hour a Day and perhaps Yon will become one filth Learned. That is better than to be five fifths ignorant. Resolve you will be of More Worth in yourself and others to Day than you were yesterday. Is often quoted to us that life is real life it is Wise for us to prove that w believe it to be real by real living and Earnes by Earnest action. Life is much As we Mak it and we May give it meaningless character o ire May make it Sublime. To awakened you the sense of Worth. Culture is Good for the individual but it has More than a self considered value. Each growth in a human soul is a Blessing to every other human soul which comes in Contact wit from thence you pass by a Entrance into the cemetery. There is a local tradition that the son of one of the member of Tho original committee who Laid out the grounds one Day accompanied his father As lie repaired thither with a View of giving directions to the workmen. Charmed by the Beauty of the spot Ami its still More beaut if surroundings he suddenly turned to his father and said if i die i wish to he buried accompanying the request by a significant gesture with his foot. On returning Home As if stricken by the Beauty of his now found Gates to Paradise he sickened and died and within fifteen Days was buried in the pre Cise spot to had selected but a fortnight before. What to bar the tradition be authentic or net you instinctively feel that it deserves to be True As you repeat mentally if not audibly what Keats said of sister cemetery at Rome that it would make one in with death to be hurled Iti so Sweet a place 1 among the monuments Tho most prominent feature is tic Beautiful Marble column sur mounted by a Cross of the same Ying the Summit of the it was the Ift of Frederick William of Prussia who pass no through Florence and visiting the cemetery 11857, caused it 4 be erected in the place of 10 Black wooden Cross that formerly notified to Pusser by that this was a sleeping place for lie dead. From this Point you can catch Fugi ivc glimpses of the surrounding scenery which charming. On the West Are the stately Pala is of the princely Quarter of Principe Amodeo n the North the Heights of Fiesole with their Cauti Ful gardens and elegant Villas and Mon Story crowned Summit while to the South is the City of Flo Ienco its churches my convents its be Fries and towers Over and a trove which looms up the Fanions Campanile of Riotto and As Tho crowning glory of them a the wondrous dome of Brunelleschi.

With her own Liaf suppressed sympathies Ever struggling to free themselves front the strange entanglement of her verse she was the elect interpreter of those dreamy shadowy experiences that float dimly in human and Only become Visi ble like characters in invisible Ink beneath tie glowing breath of poetic inspiration. One cannot but regret that the poetess coulis not have lived to Sec the final consummation of italian Unity and Independence for which hop ing against Hope she had waited and looked and prayed so Long. The voice of a Little child singing beneath her window in the via Magglos o Bella Liberia was the prophetic twittering of the first adventurous Swallow announcing tie Advent of Spring. Would that she might have seen those Spring time prophecies unfold into glorious summer fulfilment As she looked through the Casa Guidi windows and saw the stately procession and retrocession of Polit Cal events How her heart Sank and Rose will the ebb and flow of the political tides now we see her hand in hand with the florentine child singing Bella Liberia and now strew ing her violets with the rest upon the Pav Mccu where Savonarola for his testimony against tin corruptions of Rome suffered unto blood and burning. On some new accession of popular Freedom she shouts her views along with the intoxicated populace As they March in procession Between double files offices at the gayly Deco rated windows n Ith floating banners and mar tial music while even Blind men tattered with their and lid their slides along the stones and smiled As if toy then comes the terrible reaction and she is plunged into inconsolable grief As she sees the naked heart of her own beloved Italy palpitating beneath the Iron Hoof of Austria while ital Ian democrats in Black velvet chalked the Walls with bloody Shook their swords within the Sheath and fired their muskets in the air to show that was theirs of it is meet that she should be buried Liere on the Banks of the Golden Aruo in the Beautiful suburbs of her adopted Florence. The True poet As a citizen of the world can sleep Well under any Sod. But to mrs. Browning Florence was Point Piini More than a City of sojourn. Italy seem almost to have supplanted England in her affections As indicated by the frequent occurrence of such fervid phrases As Italy my my and this Florence Victor Emanuel is the King of us while her son her Bine eyed Prophet is my own Young is not difficult in this ghostly presence to evoke her frail and delicate form from out Tho silent past to recall the Pale and spiritual expression of her countenance her Noble forehead Royal with the that Gloriola of Raven hair worthy of a and these eyes Large dark and expressive Liat Luminous through Orelta of Blue with a smile like a Sunbeam As Bliss Mil Ford says her countenance in repose was saddened by the myst i ions Shadow of a great wrong known to but few forming a dark Back ground to her Beautiful life Only served to bring out in bolder Relief her saintly Virtues and i find Genius.

This by Way of preface and the Story of it an inexplicable fancy be gins Henri Cardone was a Young French artist of distinguished Promise.

Have an Opportunity to put u word in until you have run Down completely. But for this old Man with the inexplicable fancy he could not have taken a fancy to you for that during the pauses of sleep going the rounds of his Pai ish and visiting in a visionary Way his parishioners and fronds. Meanwhile he is standing up to his Chin in his and yet All through those weary months of his last illness though comparing himself As sitting at the entertainments of his friends like the coffin at the egyptian feasts or As Only fit to sit As a Model for St. Jerome taking his last communion he is cheerful nevertheless and even Jocose and conversation brim Ming with humor and sparkling with wit. Impatient at times when he remembered How much was to be done and that now he could do nothing but tempted at others with the thought of knocking at Earth s Gate with his staff exclaiming Liebe mutter let me in there is not an hour scarcely a moment of sadness.

From Csc holes i ant led to infer that it wus worn by to Assassin on the fatal night it question and furthermore that it was wrenched from its fastenings by the hand of the in Polesi comte in his dying struggle. Naturally enough it fell to the ground where i found it. To this Day in spite of the superhuman efforts of a by no Means obtuse police and Tho incentive of fabulous Reward by St. Armando s relatives the murderer is undiscovered and the whole Aflaki remains wrapped in impenetrable mystery.

We fail to observe that tendency so visible in an italian Campo Santo to Perpet uate by Means of armorial or other devices in invidious distinct Tona of this life beyond the grave As if wealth and nobility had any exclusive privileges Tuder Grout a where Bond and mortgages Avail not and aristocracy is a jest. Among the More notable monuments Are those of sir George Hamilton English minister to the court of Tuscany of general William Sewell colonel Thomas Stibber and George augus Tus Wallis. There is one too which if i mis take not will recall bitter memories of our late civil of Jefferson Page of Virginia major of artillery who died in hut to the English and american tourist the protestant cemetery at Florence Means the final resting place of mra. Browning and Theo Dore Parker. At least it was so with us. So after wandering about among Tho Graves with out finding what we sought we inquired for the Sexton. We soon Learned that the former incumbent who would have been Worth a score or two of guide books had been recently Dis charged for neglect of duty and that his Suc Cessor knew nothing of the real or legendary history of the place and but Little of its distinguished dead. A Faxon haired Blue eyed peasant git ii an unmistakable exotic in this sunny clime recognizing us instinctively As americans relieved our embarrassment by proposing to act As our and at once pointed out to us the Graves first sought out by All English and american tourists.

It consists of a sarcophagus of White Marble of Sci Vival form supported by six composite columns resting upon an ornamental base the whole protected by a Stone Border surmounted by an Iron rail. One end of the sarcophagus is decorated wit h a Lyre in Bass Relief while on one a medallion of the poetess with the simple inscription k. B. N. On. 1861.

Whatever views we May entertain of Theo Dore Parker As the Champion of that Liberal christianity of which charming was the apostle it is difficult to stand Over his grave and read the simple inscription upon his Tombstone without a passing tribute to his memory As a Man and a philanthropist. In doubt himself at times whether As a theologian lie helped or Hin dered men the More few if any entertain a doubt As to the value of his services in temper Ance anti slavery and other humanitarian causes. He proclaimed n revolution when it required the courage of a Martyr to do it. Nor can we forget that while sunnier was stricken Down in the Senate chamber Theodore Parker was indicted by a Massachusetts jury for the Misdemeanour of a speech in Faneuil Hal against the kidnapping of one. Of his own parishioners. Then too there in his heroic though unequal struggle with mortal weakness and disease As we follow him from that Albany inundation a when he first Felt the Tal a Rowan his Side that Ere Long let his life out on through to the sombre cypresses of the Ceme Tery at Flore uce. Scarcely abating his labors so multiform and multiplied but working on preaching against the advice of his physicians when it was necessary to steady himself by grasping the desk with both till from his excessive labors at the age of forty seven he Felt As if the digits were reversed and he were seventy four. And when at length compelled to resign his charge and seek climate wit Only nine chances against him to one in his it was not to rest but Only to sex period his residue of strength in new and exhausting activities. I must go he writes in his to the West indies to Europe and not to return. I Arri ready to die if need to fear. Eon Cedo when i see the inevitable i fall in love with her to die will to no evil to me. I should Lite finish my work write up my Hinta print my Best sermons finish my Book write my of my. Old associations Are the sweetest recollections of the loved Aud lost of Long ago come Back to us from the Laud of dreams and Are the Bright est places in the pathway of our lives. We arc prone to name this picture of bygone Days old times and connect therewith Many pleasurable emotions that find a place nowhere else in our hearts. They Are so closely Antwi nod around the Brittle thread of life As to form a portion of its strength Aud if but a single Fibre be Bio Kea the whole seems threatened with destruction. One by one the links in this Chain of passing lie were on the Rue do Chalons. On being in formed that he was he thanked me very Afla Bly and was turning to depart when his Glanto chanced to fall on this Little Cornelian Cross which then As now was lying on my bosom. Lie slopped Giuld fixedly at it As though it possessed some terrible fascination turned ii so deadly then livid purple and in a hoarse whisper you will Pardon me for it is no Ordinary curiosity that prompts the Quot Liou. But Maul i venture to ask How that trinket pointing a trembling Finger at the Cross 1 into your what circumstances Well queried Henri i a Low interested tone what my Little wife s reply your Little wife told him sir it was a pres ent from nor husband Aud that it had been in her Possession about four years. How or where you canely it she could not inform then a departed satisfied to. then lie inquired your name Ami pro bid i do not know whether i ought to feel complimented or insulted. Did you Tell him i Chesil Ald and told wish you had not hesitated and then told him. Something of moment May grow out of his curiosity. But it will not matter. Lion h i departed kno he s Ood absorbed in troubled thought a few minutes As though weighing a deep problem and then said he had taken a Strong and eccentric fancy for the trinket Ami asked if i would for a consideration consent to what was your reply to that very business like that being your gift i should much dislike to let it of course that must have Tonnin ated the conversation of Coli so but it did not though. It be came More pointed than Well Well 1 am eager to learn the denote said Henri. If i am not at fault in my surmises something will shortly grow out of this affair that will interest a very wide Cir Cle. Give me the exact particulars what Fol he said he was wealthy and did not value Money and that he had conceived so Strong a desire to Jross Oss the Cross that w ild As the of Fer might seem he would not demur at giving 600 francs for Fth e Hundred Par Bleu the trinket is not Worth five said Henri excitedly. Tho Mati is either a Lunatic i Mic strongly suspect him of and what is if possible for you to More events arc revealed arid become the richest treasure of the wearer. Those Halcyon of the past brighten and brighten As time steals and undimmed by Olin go go Clown with us to our Graves. Old songs endeared by the voices of tie dead arc the most Beautiful. Fashion May bring new tongs into life which Are soon lost in the Drift but those to which the heart clings Ever remain and time merely enhances their Beauty. Old friends tried and tested by adv Misity ate the Dearest. They have withstood the shocks of time supported us when trials grew thick around and now worship with us at the pure shrine in the Temple of Friendship. We have confided our troubles to them and rarely been betrayed so now As the hand of time sprinkles the Frost of ago upon their Heads the love of these old friends binds itself still closer round our hearts. Old books beloved in childhood s Days Are the Best. They carry one Back to those Pasant hours untouched by the cares of later years when the time was passed in joyous where manhood s Stern duties have not erased All feeling from the heart these Little volumes awaken Many pleasing memories of Youthful Homes and Boyish playmates of a rustic school and its laughing inmates and other like remembrances till the eyes almost suffuse with tears at the thought of those Happy Days now passed passed old Homes hallowed by the presence of loved ones gone to a better land Are the brightest Here old i lends gather round die cheerful fire Side and renew old associations and sing old songs calling up recollections which have Long slumbered with the past and Here the heart can find that peace of mind which is found nowhere outside of Home Sweet and then our old mothers persons with glowing imaginations May speak of the feeling of a Young Mother Over her first born babe but it will in no Way compare with the purer love of maturer wars. All excitement Lias passed away and in the decline of life her mind finds its full work in Loving the children of her Youthful Days. Having some Pallia Ting excuse always ready for their Petty foibles overlooking their Graver faults and Ever striving to Lead them into Tho fold of Christ with that tenderness of affection Only known to a Mother s heart. Her love seems to grow brighter and More unselfish is by its constant outpourings and its Depths can be compared to earthly. How we should reverence these aged forms taking care that no rude blast from Tho outside world shall blow upon their Heads. As they cared for us in our youth should we care for them now and Ever strive to make their last Days their brightest. The sins of the drunkard seem indeed to be visited upon his children with startling direct Ness. An eminent French surgeon took the trouble lately to inquire into the history and ancestry of a youth who had. Been admitted into an Asylum under peculiarly sad circumstances and Tia was the result first and drink grand father killed in tavern Brawl. Second drunkenness maniacal attacks ending in general paralysis in Grandfather. Third hut hypochondria acol tendencies delusions and Homicidal tendencies in tie father fourth generation intelligence. First attack of sixteen thence Transi Tion to Complete idiocy. His two Sisters became imbecile but his Mother s child by another Man strongly suspect him of being asked a Knave. In Salto of the Temica Iroil of 500 francs i inc that you still boar your Cross. 1 would have thought the sum sufi Cint to buy up All the crosses in Paris and All the women bearing them. How did you resist if 1 did not know that your slur on women and their crosses was said More in humor than Earnest i would not give you another word of Inlo nation. I told the Man Tho offer was tempting but that i could not possibly accept it without first consulting that was a Noble reply my said Henri drawing his wife close to his Side be stowing on her an eloquent glance and several passionate kisses. He Cutter 1 shall consider you cheap at Fiance what said old Croesus to your priceless an scr at first he pm heated much discomfited. After a Little said he wus going into the country to Reu. In one week that he should return this Way and if i in the mean time gained your consent or concluded part with the Crews without it he would make Good his offer. And then lie bade me a reluctant Adieu went to a Post chaise that was waiting in the. Road got in and drove off rapidly to finally we have the finale of ant re plied Henri. The musing Irene toying with the object of so much discussion which was in reality of but intrinsic value ail in no Way remarkable excepting from peculiarity of design. It was of a Clear blood red Cornelian the upright Pillow being cawed to represent a descending Arrow and the Cross piece a very Fine wrought imitation of wings. What attraction this bit of a thing which aside from being your gift i look upon As worthless can possess to Render it so exceedingly precious in the eyes of the Man. 1 cannot continued the puzzled Irene. I Thlik i can furnish you with a clue to the foundation of this extraordinary remarked Henri. What was his general appearance that of a coarse ill bred person far from that. He was quite Bill not Over Fleshy Well dressed and refined in bearing and language. His countenance betokened much illness at some Early period of his life or excessive dissipation 1 should your Cross enamoured Friend Call again. And should much doubt if he eve said Henri i am the person with whom he must with you because the object he is so extremely solicitous to possess has a mysterious history known Only to and that mysterious history affords a key to the solution of the seemingly insane offer o live Hundred apprehend such to be the Case. That Cross was found upon a spot where but a few Days previous a revolting crime had been committed if my surmises Are Correct this strange visit of yours was the author of that crime. If so he and that Little red Cross Are old acquaintances and he. Would readily sacrifice1 several times five Hundred francs to Compass its Possession. Why simply because so Long As it remains in othe hands than his own he is painfully conscious. That it May at any moment Rise up in judgment before him and Cost him the More irreparable sacrifice of you have kept All this dark mystery from comp alried Irene. Have but will no longer.
