Tell me not, in nournfil numbers,

And things are not what they seem.
Life is renl-life is earnest
And the grave is not its goal:
Dnst thon art, to dust retmrnest,
Was not spoken of the soul.
Not enjoyment. and not sorrow,
Is our destin'd end or way;
Bit to act, that each to-morrow
Fand us farther thana to-day.
Art is long, and time is fleeting,
And our hearts. thonghi stont anl bravo
Still. like muffled drums are heating
Funeral marches to the grave.
In the world's broad field of battle,
In the hivonac of Life,
Be not like dumh. driven cattle!
Be a hero in the strife!
Trust no fature, howe'er pleasant!
Let the dead Past hury its dead!
A--act in the glorious Present!
Heart within, and God o'er head!
Lives-of great men all remind its
We can mnke our lives sublime,
And.departiing leave behind its
Footsteps on the sands of time.
Footsteps. that perhaps another,
Sailing o'er life's solemn main,
A forlorn and shipwreck'd brother,
Seeing, shall take heart again.

With a heart for aniy ftte;

Learn to labor and to wait.

L Sadness.-There are moments in'man's
u life, when despondency weighs upon him
- like an incubus. le has his sunny hours
- -nd li< hours of gloom. Bright-winged
s thoughts, like birds of paradise, flit thro'
i his mind. Hope ailds his days with glad
I promises, and Joy spreads her charm a
roaid him. But in the smiling garden
i where roses grow and eternal suminer
reigns, the darkning night-shade will spring
I up and the Ifuneral cypress fling its shadow.
- Sadness will steal in upon the Eden, and:
r conv6r the brightest and rarest flowers to

The heart pants at times for sympathy
-1ut not the sympa thy of every-day
frienrds. nor the empty consolation ofsound
I in! words. 1t has griefs which it muit
- speak out, and which will be heard. It
t mtrkes its low plaints to the world, as d
child to its mother; not that the tender
voice of comfort is expected in return, for'
too often the mourner is ridiculed and ded
rided; lim the agony becomes greaterthan
can he horne untold. The aspirations of
n mbition are curbied, and shivering hope
fuills back wit h broken wing upon the heart
-hope that had gone forth like the dove,
hut returned without an olive branch. The
future then seems a blank. unenlivened by
a singe ray, and above it hovers a univer
s-al cloud, without a golden tint. The
I spirit is crushed and pours out the bitteri
tide that poisoned its once pure and fresh
.,untaius. Men of narrow minds cannot
nppreciate the complainings of the gifned',
'I hey attribute the public utterance of their
grieI; to a want offirmness. or' consider it
at most an affectation, which is not real.

heart,and cannot fathom its depths.-N. 0.

Dr. Franklin looked towards the Presf
dent's chair, at the back of which a 'ridiu
sun happened to be painted. He observed
to a few members by him that painters
f had found it difficult to distinguish a rie
i sing from a setting sun;
"I havc,' said he, often in the course of
the session, and the vicissitudes of my
r hopes and fears as to its issue, looked at
I that behind the President without being
f able to tell whether it was rising or seuting;
But now I hare the satifaction of knowing
that it is a rising sun.'
Charles F. Mercer. of Virginia, has
sorved in Congress for eleven conseco
tive sessions-haviug been first elected in'
1817. Should he serve out the term ofthe
rnext Congress, to which he has recently
hren elected, he will have represented tho
London county district twenty-four years..
.Joseph Lewis. who immediately preceded
him, represented the district fourteen years
and since the establishment of the govern
ment there have only been five persons
elected in the district. This would show
I that the people of that part of Virginia:
- are not fond of change.
