Bv Nebo's lonely mountnln
On this side J or dun s wave.
In a vale in the land of Mono,
There lies a lonely gruve.
And no man dug that, sepulchre,
And no man saw it e'er
For tbe angels of God upturned thesod
And laid the dead man there.
That was tbe grandest Inneral
That ever passed on earth;
But no man beard tr.e trampling '
Or saw the train go forth,
Noiselessly as the daylight
Comes when tbe night is done.
And the crimson streak on ocean's cheek
Grows into tbe great sun.
Noiselessly as the spring time '
Her crown of verdure weaves.
And all ibe trees on all tbe bills
Opea their thousand leaves.
So without sound of music,
Or voice of them that wept,
Silently down from the mountain crown
The great procession swept.
Perchance the bald old eagle
On gray Bdttipeor's l.e ght,
Out of his rocky eyrio
Looked on tbe wondrous sight.
Perchance the lion stalking
Still shuns that hallowed spot,
For beast and bird have seen and beard
That which man knoweth not.
But when the warrior dietb '
His comrades in the war,
With arms reversed and muffled drum.
Follow tho I u u era 1 car.
They show tbe banners taken,
Tbey tell bis battles won,
And after him lend his masterlets steed,
While peals the minuie gun.
Amid the noblest of the land
Men lay the sago to rest.
And gave the bail un honored place.
With costly marble drest;
In the great minister transept,
Where lights like glories fall.
And the choir sings and the organ rings
Along tbu emblazoned wall.
This was (he bravest warr'rr
That ever buckled sword;
This the most, gifted poet
That, ever brea'lied a word;
And never earth's philosopher
Traced wlih bis gulden pen
On the death less page truths half so sage
As he wrote down for men.
And had he not Iiiph honor!
the hilU ile for l.i pall;
To lie in state while ungels wait,
With stars for tapers tall;
And the dark rock pines, like tossing
O'er his bier to wave;
And God's own hand, in that lonely land
To luy him in the grave.
In that deep grave without a name,
Whence his uncoffined clay
Shall break again most wondrous tbo't,
Before the judgment day.
And stand with Glory wrapped around,
On the hill)) he never trod.
And speak of the Btrife that wan our
With tbe Incarnate Son of God.
O, lonely tomb in Meab's land,
I', daik Ilethpeor's hill.
Speak to these curious hearts of ours.
And texch them to be still.
God bath bis mysteries of grace
Ways tholwe cannot tell;
He hides them deep. like the secret sleep
Of him ho loved so well.
A Trial ok Faith. The best joke of the
seannn was perpetrated a lew diiys ago by
John Uempie'y, who keeps saloon down
town, -on a countryman. A dispute on the
subject of religious faith arising between tbe
parties, the country mm asserted that Cath
olics bad no faith. John bcin? of the lat
ter persuasion, denied tho assertion in a
most decided manner, aud proposed that a
kettle f hot water be brought, and five
dollars on a side l.e put up to deeidH as to
whose tnith could longest cadurn the pain
of thrusting a foot into it. The water was
brought and the stakes put up. Denipsey,
who, mirk yon. has a wooden leg for bis
dowry fur faithful service against tbe late
rebellion, thrust in bis wooden foot and
held it there for some considerable lime
without showing any more symptoms of
pain than prudence dictated, the country
man then took bis turn, but his foot hud
not reacheil the bottom of the vessel before
be shrieked with agony and hopped across
tbe room, declaring that he was scalded
terribly and so he was. Dempsey, ef
course, pocketed the stakes and the country
man went home none tbe wiser, Iwt doubt
less enlightened on the subject of Catholic
faith. l'iltston Gazette.
