-3Y MOTHERS BIBLE
This book is all that's left me now,
Tears will unbidden start
With faltering lip and throbbing brow,
I press it to my heart.
For many generations past,
Iere is our family tree:
My mother's hands this lBible clarp'd
She, dying, gave it me.
Al ! well do I remember thtosc
Whise names these records bear;
Who round the hearth stone used to close
After the evening prayer.
And speaking of what these pages said,
In tones my heart would thrill!
Though they are with the silent dead,
Here are they living still!
My father read this holy book
To sisters, brothers, dear,
Ilow calm was my poor mother's look,
Who learn'd God's word to hear.
11cr angel face-I see it yet!
What thrilling memories come!
Again that little group is met
Within the ha!ls of home 1
Thou truest friend man ever knew,
Thy constancy I've, tried,
Where all were false I found thee true,
My counsellor and guide.
The mine of earth no treasures give
That could this valume buy :
In teaching me the way to live
It taught me how to die.
Vision of Eternity.
Time is short, and eternity is long; yet
in this short time I must prepare for a long
etor.aitv. Oh ! what a duration is before me!
but what an infatuation is within me, that I
should mind the trifling things of time, and
forget the interest of eternity! Truly, when
I compare eternity with time, I am astonish.
ed that eternity does not swallow up time in
my concerns and meditations. With what
night visions, deceptive fantasies, and delu
sive dreams are entertained herr, in compari
son of that divine understanding intuitive
knowledge, noonday discoveries, vigor and
activity of soul, we shall be possessed of
when we awake to immortality from all the
slumbers of a transitory life! And yet (woe
is me,) am I not more anxious to grow in
earth than to grow for heaven? Will not
the fear of temporal losses at times out-balance
the joy I should have in believing? While
God and glory have a passing meditation in
my heart, have not the vanities of the world
a permament mansion ? Does not worldly
sorrow take deeper root in my soul than
spiritual joy ? And where my thoughts
counted one by one, while vanities reap the
whole harvest, sacred things have scarce the
tithe! Is this alas! the behavior of a candi
date for bliss, the practice of an expectant
of glory ? One thinks least of what he loves
last. 0 mournful conclusions! that I love
God least, since he is least in my thoughts! i
But let me rise in my contemplations, and t
see the goodly host of the ransomed nations I
dwelling in the noonday displays of his glory, I
possessed of pleasures free as the fountain i
wvhence they flowv, and full as their unlimited
desires. TIheir souls are replenished wvith
the most refined satisfaction, sacred delight i
and substantial joy. What an august assem- h
bly are the inhabitants of the better country y
wearing crowns, holding sceptres, reigning t
on thrones, walking in white, exalted in their i,
nature, their conceptions bright, their visions
cloudless, thoughts elevated, their songs a
transportating, their happiness confirmed, b
their love burning, and all their powers en- o
traced forever ! c
The Slanderer' b
Of all the ills, and maladies, and distempers, a
which " flesh is heir to," few indeed are so e.
dangerous and deadly, and none so insidious al
as slander. The dark insinuation, the equit'- c<
ocal expression, the hialf-suppressed sentence,
the lowv wvhisper-ese, with their appropri- m
ate accompaniments of looks, w'inks, and e;
nobs, are the execrable weapons with which .
the quiet, smooth-tongu ed sianderer does ki
his wvork of desolation and death. An un
guardecd expression often serves as a founda- he
tion for the most poisonous slanders- fit
Did he attack you openly, you could ca
guard agatnst the assaults, and if you should ,1
fall, fall fighting manfully in defence of your
honor and reputation. But no! the blight- i
ing inuendo is passed from one to another, an
until the whole town is in possession of it, an
with all its snow-ball-like accumulation, and de
all the wvay along the blasting secret has -
traveled under the protection of confidential
secresy, so that the injured, and perhaps
ruined subject of the slanderer, is the last
to have the doleful tidings sounded *itn his
ears, and by this time the fatal stigma has
fastened upon him with such weight of sus
picion, that it may be impossible in a wvhole
lif'etimne, to cast oilf effectually that foul
Th'le busy, meddling Iattler should have
the brand of infamy burnt deep into his very
forehead, and exposed to universal scorn,
but idIol curiosity andl itching cars give sup
port to the hiateful serpent, and lhe is ena
bled to live on the vitals of virtuous society
and luxurate in the spoils of innocence.
For the villaitn wvho seeks your life there is
a gallows prepared, and standing up in lero
rein; for the thief who robs you of your
property, a prison, peniteniiary, and the just
execration of society; but the black-hearted
moral cannibal wvho secretly blasts your rep
utation, the fabric of many years toil and
virture, a thousand times more valuable than
property, and dearer than life itself, should
be for ever discountenanced by the worthy
and " pure in heart," and banished from the
circles of a truth-loving community.
That vilest of demons smiles at the deso- T
lation wvrought by the venom of his tongue,ou
retains his rank in society. "Oh, tell it not Tu
in Gath, nor publish it through the streets of fied
Askelon," and in many itnstances, unim- can1
peached in his standing itn the Church of heac
Christ also. TIhe murderer is a Christian, b-tk
- the foe a friend, the robber a saint, compared ter
with the moral turpitude of the saintly-seem- num,
ing slanderer, who, with the tongue of an TI
angel, combines a heart as black as the then
snmoke of perdition. the
H~OPE.-Tbe anchor of the soul is hope, rate
Where it ntot for hope the heart would oft- can't
times break under the heavy weight of woe T

ON LISTENING TO EVIL REPoRT.-The
longer I live, the more I feel the importance
of adhering to the rules which I have laid
down to myself in relation to the following
1. To hear as little as possible what is to
the prejudice of others.
2. To believe nothing of the kind till I
am absolutely forced to iL
3. Never to drink into the spirit of one
who circulates an ill report.
4. Always to moderate, as far as I can,
the unkindness which is expressed toward
5. Always to believe that, if the other
side were heard, a very different account
would be given of the matter.
I consider love as wealth; and as I would
resist a man who should come to rob my
house, so would I a man who would weak
en my regard for any human being. I con
sider, too, that persons are cast into differ
ent moulds; and that to ask myself: What
should I do in that person's situation ? is
not a just mode of judging. I must not ex
pect a man that is naturally cold and reser
ved, to act as one that is naturally warm and
affectionate ; and I think it a great evil that
people do not make more allowances for
each other in this particular. I think religi..
ous people are too little attentive to thete
WHENEVER we find our temper ruffled
toward a parent, a wife, a sister, or a broth
er, we should pause and think that in a few
more months or years, they will be in the
spirit land, ivatching over us, or perchance
we shall be there watching over them left
behind. The intercouse between guardian
angels, and the objects of thier vigils.
ToOUGIT WE.-As we sat in the cabin
of one of our western steamers and listened
to an octogenarian as he talked of real
estate and legal proceedings thereon, occa
sionally employing an oath to give emphasis
to his speech, old man if you not throwa
away your deeds and titles, bonds and mort

Trhought we, as a cunning lawvyer amus

our course of _Jife is requisite, or you will

Thought we, as we gazed in the face of

Th'lought wve, as we looked at the reigning"

queenly air, seemingly scornful of the very Fe

IlS ESSENCE is warranted to possess, in a
r concentrated form, all the valuable properties of
AMAICA GIJNGER, and will be found, on trial, an
scellent Family Medicine. It is particularly recom
iended as a tonic, to persons recovering from fever or
ther diseases, a few drops imparting to the stomach
glow and vigor equal to a wine-glassful of brandy
other stimulant, without any of the debilitating
rects which are sure to follow the one of liqnor of
iy kind ; and it is therefore especially serviceable to
6idren and females. To the aged it will prove a
reat comfort; to the dyspeptic, and to those who are
edisposed to gout or rheumatic affections, it gives
vat relief; and to the inebriate who wisheis to re
rm. but whose Ntomach is constantly craving the
iois liquor, it is invaluable-giving tone to the
gestive organs, and strength to resist temptation;
