For the Louisville Courier. In my girlhood's homo in a Northern clime, The land of the frost and the snow, I oft hnd dreams of a summer home Where my wandering feet should go : A land of knights and ladles fair, Where the richest perfume filled the air. And one silent form for ever stood Before njy ravished eyes, With a beauty that might well hare belonged To the hour is of paradise: A soul whore love and song unite To clothe the spirit in robes or white. I left my home in that Northern land, For a bright and tropical clime ; word?
Yet the strango wild dream of my early youth Wus fadeless and pure as eternal truth. I sought in the crowded halls of mirth. JVa catch a glimpse of that form divine ; Joldly and sadly I turned away, j Ij felt that a hopeless task was mine. II y listening cars to greet : Tuning my soul's Eolian strings, And giving my tatty tireless wings. I knew by the throb or my poet heart. That tbc beauty I long had Fought Wfl? And 1 blessed the fates that so kindly willed My dream of life to be fulfilled. Oh 1 then, sweet girl, take this Bimple lay From one, though obscure in life. And whose soul with friendship is riTc.
And when thy thoughts are fancy free. The Gaines Cnsc. Gaines, thus placing that lady, after a struggle of many years duration, in possession of proiKT! The history, ill brief, of this remarkable ease is as follows : Ztilieinc Carriere, a beautiful Fretu li girl, had bceu entrapped into a marriage with a man named Jerome Do Grange, who represented himself to be a French Count. Ou reaching Philadelphia shc discovered that 0c Grange was a married man and a confectioner. Zttlicmc Hed from her seducer, and became acquainted with Daniel Clark, one of the early settlers of Louisiana, nttd a man of extraordinary business tact and energy.
This meeting was in 1SCK. Clark soon after r::trnecl the handsome French wom-in, but the marriage was kept Boeret. Gaines, was bom. Soon after tho birth of her. Zulicme became anxious to have her marriage with Clark made public, and she left for "o" Orleans to obtain legal proof of her first luiuband's The cast hookah and a summer Louisville Kentucky.
Clark, now an inlluential politician, took advantage of her absence to pay his addresses to Miss Caton, grand-daughter of Charles Carroll. An engagement was cuntracted, but Miss Caton discovered that Clark was already married, and the match was broken otf.
Miss Caton afterwards became the -Marchioness of Welles ley. On her return to Philadelphia, Zulieme discovered this ntw blow to her happiness. She at once set aboutproviDg her marriage to Clark, but found that he had destroyed all theevidcuess of the fact that lay within his reach. Poor and helpless she struggled ou with her child until she met with Br. Gardetto, who learned her story, offered her his hand, and was accepted. Clark soon after sought a reconciliation with Zulicme, but was too late. He obtained possession of their child and bad it brought up by a friend, every care being taken of her education.

The Court, in giving tho decree, said that measures would be at once taken to enforce the. The Louisiana act of secession does not affect he Gaines decision, as all pending suits ill the United Stales Court, in which residents of that Suite were concerned, were exempted from interference.

Apples for Central Kentucky Mr. Samuel Haycraft, an experienced frnlt-grower in Hardin county, gives very useful information now and then in a series of short articles which he is publishing in the Elizabethtown Democrat and the Ken tucky Farmer. His experience with North cm apples is that of nearly all observing orchardists west of the Licking and south of the Ohio rivers, viz : that while thev nearly always increase in size and improve in beauty by emigration, they undergo so great a change in the periods of maturity, as to make depondenee upon catalogues and classifications altogether unsafe; fall and winter apples in New York, for exam ple, becoming almost invariably summer and fall apples in Kentucky.
