THERE IS NO DEATH.
IIT Dili E. BULWEIl L.TTTO.V.
There Is no death I The stars go down
To rise upon some fairer shore;
And bright In Heaven's Jeweled crown
They shlno forevcrmorc
There Is no death! the dust wc tread
Shall change beneath the summer showers
To golden grain or mellow fruit,
Or ralnbow-tlntcd llowcrs.
Tho granite rocks disorganize
To feed the hungry moss they bear;
The forest leaves drink daily lllc
From out the lewless air.
There Is no death I Tho leaves may fall,
Tho flowers may fade, ami pass away;
Thoy only wait, through wintry' hours,
The coming of the May.
There Is no death ! An anccl form
Walks o'er the earth with silent tread ;
Ho bears our best loved things awny,
And theu we call them " dul."
He leaves our hearts all desolate.
He plucks our fairest, sweetest tlowers ;
Transplanted Into bliss, they uow
Adorn Immortal bowers.
The bird-like voice, whose Joyous tones
Made glad the scenes of sin and strife,
Sings now an everlasting song
Amid the tree ot life.
And where he sees a smile too bright,
Or hearts too pure for taint ar.d vice,
lie bears it to that world of light,
To dwell In Paradise.
Born unto that undying life,
They leave us but to come acaln ;
With joy we welcome them the same,
Except In sin and pain.
And ever near us, though nnsoen,
The dear, Immortal spirit tread ;
For all the boundless Universe
Is life there are no dead.
THE FLYING HOURS.
Mourn, O, rejoicing heart t
The hours are flying;
Each one some treasure takes
Each one some bloesoin breaks
Ami Icrtves It dying,
The chill, dark night draws near
The sun will soou depart
And leave thee sighing.
Then mourn, rejoicing heart,
The hours are flying.
Rejoice, O, grievous heart !
The hours fly fast ;
With each some sorrow dies
With each some shadow flies,
Until at last
The red dawn In the East,
Bids weary dawn depart,
And pain Is past,
Rejoice, then, grieving heart,
The hours fly fast!

Laziness travels so slow that poverty over

others. Who gives of his necessity does good
It is an awful thing to feel that all we pos
sess w continually wasting away, and at the
same time to set our hearts upon it, without
enquiring after something more solid and uu
It is immortality that makes life a desira
ble blessing. "Without this it would be but
an unprofitable and burthensomc trifle, pre
served with anxiety and quitted jvith terror.
In matters or great concern, and which
must be done, there is no surer argument of
a weak mind than irresolution to be unde
termined where the case is so plain, and the
necessity so urgent ; to be always intending
to lead a new life, but never to tlnd time to
set about it.
The security which follows long continued
prosperity is often the occasion of men's de
struction. If half the pains were taken by some peo
ple to perform the labors allotted to them that
arc taken by them to avoid them, we should
hear much less said about tho. troubles of life,
and see much more actually completed.
If any one speak ill of thee, consider wheth
er he has the truth on his side, and if so re
form thyself, was the remark of an old phil
osopher. To bo thankful for what wo have, and to
be hopeful for what we have not, is the best
and happiest way of carrying on merchandise
with the court of heaven.
Horace Mann says that " a teacher who is
attempting to teach, without inspiring the
pupil with a desire to learn, is hammering
The counsels of the good cannot benefit us,
for the reductions of the wicked injure us
without our own free consent. Our wisdom
and folly arc our own, and we must reap
their fruits here and hereafter.
That was a good remark of Seneca, "Great
is be who enjoys Ins earthenware as it it were
plate ; and not less great is tho man to whom
all his plate is no more than earthenware."
If the Spring put forth no blossoms, in the
Summer there will bo no beauty, and in Ac
. tumn no fruit. So, if youth bo thrown away
without any improvement, riper years will bo
contemptible, and old age miserable."
An essayist, who eyidently knows some
thing of human nature, earnestly insists upon
the duty of feeding the poor, before attempt
ing to mako them better. It U difficult, he
says, for a famished man to believe thut there
is a Father in Heaven until he feels that he
has brothers on earth. Is it surprising, then,
that religious truth should find more indiffer
ence than welcome among tho hungry and
half nourished ? Every one knows how un
nmiable oven the best fed are liable to be
come, if kept too long-waiting for their meals,
and how inaccessible thoy are at such times
to appeals which, after dinner, meet most

Tun Dum.nhm or PuiAsunr.. "Without
novelty or occupation 1ii11iich will creep in
everywhere, nnd, on the whole, the men and
women who nrc most frco from it are those
whoso onlndi nrc cngroiscd completely in
some particular pursuit or calling, nnd who
have no room for thinking of mere pleasure.
Those people, however, if not dull, arc the
cause of dullness in other?, nnd their society
is frequently remembered with mixed sent!
tncnU. Dullness must bo taken to 1k tho
common lot of mortals. It is fome sntisfao-
tion to feol, when it dweends upon a, that
It will visit all alike.
It i some gratification to tho?c who have
to exert themselves usefully to know that

I'linr have tasted it in omo kind evon at tho
dawn of condousncss, and will continue to
tt it to the very end. I his may bo called
an' tneUter way ol turning the olu advice
as to the vanity "of all things, tho old sermon
with its metaphors of Dead fcea lrtnt, and
other rhetorical ornaments. Still tho truth
of it Is brought homo to us with fresh force
when the weather becomes distressingly
warm in town. Tho effort of nrnn and womon
at this senson to escape their destiny Ls so
notoriously frustrated that ono turns to ven
erable causes to account for tho effect, if only
for too satibhiction of verifying the wisdom
of our ancestors. A c need not, like Mr.
Swinburne, recapitulate the burdens vhich
are tho emi of overy man's desire. If wo only
confine ourselves to tho burden of ploasuro
itself, to the burden of mere social pleasure,
we shall find that tt is a load heavy to boar
at this jarticular time. ImhJuh Retim.
A Scrap or War History. Mr. lloacb,
formerly of the New York Sun, writing to
that ptiper, lately, from Yicksburg, says :
l'ut though I am no historian, I must re
peat tho singular statement of a business man
who was in Vicksburg during all the eventful
period ot her history, ana who speaks in a
practical manner. It is that there was ong
inally no thought of defending Vicksburg;
at when t arragut a summons was sent, no
earthworks had been raised, and not over
nino hundred men could hnvo wen mustered
for its defence; that tho "never surrender"
reply to Farrogut's demand wa, purely and
Bimiiiv, bombast, and was unsupported u
substance; that the delay of Ave or six days
in rarragut's coming to take possession, (as
he might have done without tiring a gun)
enabled the commandant to send for assist
ance, and prepare for a little defence, that he
might thereby gain some kind ot ' term, and
that the prolonged struggle which ensued
was nothing but the result of a delayed as
sault. Even' hour that the defence was con
tinucd increased the means of defence, until
at lant, though at the lost only, that defence
Lockjaw, on Tetanus Has long been one
of tno most formidable symptoms ensuing
upon certain kinds of wounds, and it has
sometimes baffled all the resources of surgical
and medical art. At last, however, a remedy
has been discovered that completely conquers
it. Chloroform is the bencficicnt agent. Tho
method of application is by placing a cloth
saturated with the fluid along tho entire
spinal column, and prevention evaporation
by covering the cloth with oiled silk. This
is done whenever the patient feels the tetanic
paroxysm approaching, it averts all spasms
and usually causes the patient to sink into a
sweet, refreshing slumber, which may lead to
rapid convalcsence. Tho inhalation of chlo
roform has hitherto been tried, but with suc
cess only when complete aiuzastlussia was pro
infamous. in the course ot a speech in
the united states benate, a tew weeks ago
by Mr. Buckalcw, of Pennsylvania, he stated
that the proof Ls conclusive that the consti
tution of Arkansas was rejected by 10,0CO
majority. Xota Radical had the hardihood
to dispute his statement. What a disgrace
ful spectacle the Senate of tho United States
approving a fraud : Is it strange that crime
is on the increase, when villainy is sanctioned
