LITTELL'S LIVING AGE-No. 528.-1 JULY, 1854.
FROM GEMS OF MOORE.
To the pleasure-loving inhabitants of Paris, ges for which the French are famous, or gayly St. Cloud offers one of those delightful places tripping on the greensward to the enlivening of resort which, in the neighborhood of a great sound of some popular air, a sense of pleasure city, seems to transport the beholder hundreds and joy animates the whole being, and, pleasing of miles from the capital, and by rendering cheap and pleased, diffuses itself around in all those and innocent pleasures easy of access, docs more little graces and amenities which have made to ameliorate the condition of the lower orders French politeness proverbial throughout the than can well be imagined. From the noise and dust of manufactories, from the glare and oppressive atmosphere of the crowded work-room; and, also, but too often, from the deficiences and discomforts of an ill-regulated house-to the toiling artisan and ever-bending seamstress, how enchanting the transition to the shades and verdure of St. Cloud, whose beautiful Lauterne, modelled from the tower of Demosthenes at Athens, finely placed on a lofty eminence, commands a noble prospect of the surrounding country; here, seated beneath the magnificent old trees that wave over them with a thousand gentle influences, the smiling landscape at their feet, whose shining river, spanned by its superb bridges, reflects the palaces on its banks, and the gayly-dressed groups whose many-colored garments are seen amongst the groves, the sparkling fountains, and shadowy walks in all directions, life insensibly assumes a more cheering aspect its pains and penalties are either forgotten or borne more easily; and indulging in the harmless luxury of some of those fantastic bevera-I

'Twas thus a day
In the lap of May
Sat singing of Summer not far away.
Were caught by a throng
Of bursting buds that hasted along."
