IDEAT1 bF Mi oNTGoal RY11.
Another lciad's mystic flight,
Hath cast its shade o'er Britain's strand
A brilliant constellatioi's light,
Is dawning on a better lamd.
The Narthern Lyre, one by one,
Has had its gold strings rudely swept
In %weetest notes its chords vibrate,
As if a trembling seralh wept.
At hofy eve, when thousand stars
llave east their .lory o'er the sea,
Thy numbers have my bosom stirred
To ,carnings, that it might be free.
And o'er my soul thy infinence threw
A pure sweet dream of heavenly bliss;
A look " beyond ti flight of time,"
Took all the pain and tWars front this.
III sorest entdeice, low and sweet,
A requiem floats far o'er the zale
it old Westmitister's arelivs wide,
Do kindred spirits join the wail.
Though now thy star is set in mists,
Which bafille viion's boasted power,
Thy tiname i il fluri.-h is the oak,*
That thot didst plant in life's l:st hour.
Thuiighi Azrael's mandate staved its fli;..t,
"Till fourscore luttres shed their rays,
Thy renovated form will live,
To chiant in Heaven eternal praise.

iin a ntotice of the Poet's death it is stated that

frunt Uf the infiriary in the town in which lielived.
TnERE is dew fir the flow'ret,
And honey for the b'e;
And bowers for the will bird,
And 1ave for you and me!
There are tears for the many,
And plasures for tne few ;
But let the world pass oi, diar,
There's love for ie and you!
There's cm e that will not leave us,
And pain that will not flee
But in our hearts unaltered,
Sits .ove, 'tween you and me!
Our love, it ni'er was reckoned,
Yet i'd'tt I aId true;
It's half1 thet worhtl to mec loive)
It's 1ll IIhe wold4 it) y-u!
A TALE FO:NDED ON FACTs.
"Not yet !" was heard spoken in a loud quick
toie of voice, succeedeid by I report ot :a pistol.
-ii: tat intg from the bottotm of a dark subierrane
Ots vault. hitherto undisturbed by sound front the
ommencemeit of time, except by the deep
toned, majestic thunder, as it pealed its awful
amatlienas frot) the thik, heavy clonds. as they
covered the motititain's top. This 'rightful
abo'de of ter-ror was situ:.ted on Cumberland
mountAin. near the road passing throngah Sparta.
the Crab Orchard and to Knoxville, Tenine-see.
S itrprised at what I Icatrd so unexpe;ed in tiit
hideous wilderness, I checked my horse and lis
tnedi'I wit h iit e.e ity, i.3 ; to hear onice motre
hiat horrid dlwellig place of mysteries, bef'ore I
ulId tatk e myi leave oft this st rante utnir ; atol
whist thtus 5tispended, as it were by hope, fear.
atul anttnv, I hieardi. as I thbought, :i female voice
exlaitm, "thin tk Ileiveni. I am safle." Myn eucori
oity was tnow excited beyond exptression. [Hear
ing tirst the voice of a man, thlen the Ilotd voice
tf deathl's in.ttrumRent, and still inure, the soul
:tniiiatintg voice otf a f'emale, all conspired to ex
eite myt~ miost profoound symopath l anttd greatest
astoniimeint. I cttild til lotnger refraiti ''rtom
ilimottni ing andh rusingtt to the mtouth 0of thei
sel tdied a l'e tutre. A te r somec intuteis of'
breathlless sitrptrise'. lookitng throught thle dark
ruli.ges of thtick pine' leaves, I discotvered the
bledinig ttrm it' a zituin lyintg prostraite in the
Inwest part of' lie cave, with a pistoil in tone
hand, and a dirk, as if' fallen f'rttm the oilier,
tcIo-e lhv his side. All was still-deaRth and si
I enc.e icigtitd tr~i iumphanit there. Alter manyi~
at temtpt s to di-cover' thle parties to t his st ranice
all:ir, I vetutred1 still closer to te eictimt of det
de:onta~~ting before mte. WVhere were the a'
tors of thi. bht' dy tragtedy ? unime seemied insuifli
etit fttr thleir escape. And cotuld it be possible
::l that I b..d hetard hiad resulted f'ritmu ain act oft
suiide ? Frotm the ranpidh succession~ and inicont
rit ies of soundits. I t hought tnot.
TIhte bill had piaised throgh his head. Poor
man, thiought I, you have tidIlen a viet imt to dis
:tpi'oitent, disanppoited amibitioni, tor blastted
holes of earthly felicity, atnd have retired far
frm inhde world's vulgar scrutiny-hiidinig in n.
ttre's dark recess, :dike his peso anid hi'4
bloody deed. Antd if so, I~i amitn intruder upon0
the purposes and design~s of the dead. Bitt up.
Ott atn examination of his pistol, I t'ound it to bte
loaded. I foutnd moy coitjectures were all wvrong.
ad for thie safety of my own personi, I hurried
away frotm the scene ot' eairnage~ and deathI.
Ma y cottjectures presented thiemselIves dutiring'
my eveniing's rie, yet till etndedh in doubt, and
utte:rtainty3. A clue to the facts seemted cover
ed itt iimpeiietratble darkness. Af'ter traivelling
twety miles through ai wild wilderness, seeing
no hutmant beinig, anud hearing nIo human voice.
except, the constatnt reiterationt of "not yet,"
-thank hea~ven, i amt safe," which rang as if
spokeni frm Ihe tolps of the miajestic ptines cover
iig the cloitd.reachitg hills ini every direction.
y f'eeliings strangely aiccorded with the scee
now sutrrouniidiing -me-the winds hoiwled hide
ousy, as they passed ime by-the loud roatring
of tihe catanract's aswf'il fall, anid the deep gather
ing clouds that shut out the light, of' day, all, till
kepit imv heart awaketneil antd my ind on teCr
rr's visioni beint. Aflter ai rapid1 r'idet ilf a few
hours, I hortuonatelv reached the bteatiful townt
of K. befoure the mantle of itighit l'ell upoii tie.
I had no sootter crossed the' river anid gainied ad

wit newed. I asked rte landllord if therie was
any netws aboutt towni. Hie rephlied there was
great ce'imtiit pter'vin~ig all ranks of' society
by the sudden disaippeatrantci of two yountg meni.
ind also tof a youn tg lady ; till oft whom had
beeni raised ini the place, lie said Mr. NeCloud
ad Miss Mary Lawson hiad crossed the ricer f'or
the purpose of uttending church, some for or
Dvke follewed in the :nme direelion, and no
thinir had ,sine been iea;rd from themIt. lie said
ieCUmlod and Van Dyke v.ee rivals for tIh haid
of' Miss Lawson. '' 'blitnd," lie sid, "is

We copy the following well-written and high
ly interesting Circular Letter from the Minutes
of the Edgefield Baptist Association. It is from
the accomplished pen of Rev. B. F. CORLEY.
DEAr BiaTitE-Permit its to addresd you,
in this our- aiutal episile, on the dtiy and im
porltiace of direct jidividu:l effort, on the part
of each member of the Church, in the conver.,ion
of siners to God.
The Saiour said to his disciples, " Ye are the
s.ailt of the earth." This laiguage applIle to the
discipies, both as Ciristiais ad am Christian
Ministers. And it meauns that every Chrimian
shioid.make his influence individually and di
reetly flvtt for the salvation of' those around him.
PAis had re'':ird to this when he said in his let
ter to the Collbssian%, 4: 6. " L. t your -peecth
h! ahways with grace. seasontd with -:&," for
thiS will make - the moutii of a righlteous man
a well of life." It also teaches thal every Chris
tian should exert a conservative influence-that
thieir valie eonsists iin their .savor-that without
this they are not only usteles, but they defeat
an imporlant de-ign in their converbion ; and
also iat their sitiation is ipeless. For, "though
-tmy restore unsavory meal, what can res
tore tinsavory salt !"* The ageney of his peo
jle is the ordinary means by whih God de si niis

In the pulpit we often deal in genueral; out of' it

in j.irticulbrs4. There are often facts and cir.
cum-tances which might be happily employed in
private conversation, which wonidd be out of
place in the pulpit. Direct appeals may be so
made as to fall with power upon the heart.
Thee address themselves to the judgment, they
feel it is to them, anrid they cannot Irr.nsfer it.
I will illustrate this. Soon . fter the death of
that devoted servant of God, Harlan Page, when
a subscripion was being handed round for the
beneit of Mrs. P. and her children,a youing mer
cliant stantdina by sid, with tears standing in his
tves, "I wi.h to give sotuethin --here are ten
dollars; bnt ftor ilr. P. I would probably have
sunk into a miserable eternity." This ywong
man, in explaining the circumstance uaid, "Mr.
P. corming into the Church before the hour for
preaching, took a seat by my side and said, I 1
tru-t you love the Saviour.' The question im
ieediately filled ny eyes with tears. I had been
ireached to at arrms length all my days in New
Hampshire, but this was the first time in my life
that ever a Christian thus kindly put such a ques

they unfold an ituportant secret to tih child of
While I would not detract from the dignity
and importance of our Heavei.alppointed minis

.-een to have that happy elfect which it had in
earlier times. A sernion on the love and death

consiidered, than one addressed to a well inform.
ed American congregation. Robert Hall once
said, 4 the darkest place in the room is under
the lonp." And it appears that those who re
ceive the light of the understanding, unaccompa
nied by the love of truth, have their hearts ren
dered e.dlous to Divine impressions by the com
tnie.,s of their spiritual privileges; so that
God's word bcoines a savor of death unto death,
by sioning wiifully after they have received the
knowledge of the truth. Now, when one mode
of attack fails the skilful general will resort to
an i her, and thus take his enemy on surprise.
So shodl- we do It is true that all elliciency in
otr Divine work must be etfcted by the same
intrument--truth-but still, the instrument may
be wielded in diil'erent ways-In one direction
we might strike a %hiehl or helmest, and do no in.
jury, while in another direction it mortal wound
aight lie inflicted. As God's agents, we should
wield his inistrument skilfully.
I notice, in the third place, the spirit and man.
ner in which this effort should be made. Here
we must strive lawfully if we triumph. Love
to Christ is alone capable of impelling a man to
the perforance of works neceptable to God.

says .\r. Page int a letter to a young convert,

but alpproach imt viiih a holy violence and labor

In the fouiihi place I notice the happy results

A CHiNESE WoNDE.-Enropeans and Ameri
cetis ate very ampt to conisider the Chinese as
barbairians, when compared with our own and
ather Chirist:iin nations. Yet wve are constantly
meeting with faicts in relation to that sitngular
peoplek, which put to the blush all our vaini glo
rious boasting. What are our great canals when
compared with that exitraordinairy work of art,
the uiperial Canal of China, which was built
by the blongol Enmpyror, Kublai Khan, and
etends a dist.mnee of more thani 600 iles?
Great heights are tunnelled, lakes bridged, and
stupendous embarkments thrown over marshes
and lo~w ground to afford it a passage. Unlike
our canals, its capacity is not limited to small
baoats, but large ships sail upon its wvaters, which
are filled by mighty rivers, amid serve not only
the purpose of a conmmercial highway, but are
used for the two-tiald objects of irrigation and
drainage, thus rendering availatble for cultivation
mnch land which would otherwise be useless.
TIhis canal has been protiounced by Europeans
a gigaintie work, and one displaying soundpraic
tical enigineering skill, and even genius in its
construction. Yet it is one among many
achievements of art to be found on a larger scale
in Chinia thatn in any other counitry in the world.

The following preamble and Resolutions were
adopted at the meeting of the Young Men's Be
nevolent Association on Saturday evening.
Whereas, it has been reported to this Asso
ciation by a member of one of the Ward Com
mittees, that Dennis Haley has forcibly, and
without legal process, ejected Mrs. Fortune, a
poor widow woman with her sick child, from a
tenement occupied by them, for the non-payment
of rent, turning her into the streets,and endan
goring the life of the child, if not of the
Be it resolced unaimously by this Association,
That the conduct of said Haley, considering the
times and circumstances accompanying it, was
cruel, unchristian, unmanly and inhuman and
that its author should be hel d up to the execra
tion of every member of this community.
Resolced, That the city papers be requested
to insert thii pre:mble and resolution, aecompa
nied by such comment as the outrage demands.
We know of no langiuage strong enough to
denounce such depravity as that described in the
case above alluded to. It is certainly the most
inhuman and barbarous net we have yet heard
of and many have come to our knowledge-du
ring the trying season from which we are just
emerging. Any man who has so little of human
sympathy in him should be looked upon as too
mean for pity and too contenptiile for scorn.
It is to be hoped that should injury result to the
parties said to have been ejected, the offender
will not be allowed to go un%% hipt of justice.
The Young Men's Benevolent Association of
Savannah have determined hereafter to distribute
their beneftctions in the shape of provisions,

as heretofore. They have been compelled to
adopt this rule, in order the more effectually to
guard against fraud and imposition.
Some days ago, for example, a number of one
of the Ward Committees found 'a poor Irish girl
sick and in great distress. A physician was
sent for, and a nurse procured, and' ten dollars
were left with her sister-in-law, with whem sho
was living. with which to purchase provisions.
On returning the next day, the committee man
found that the sister-in-law had spent fifty cents
of this money for medicine, and had appropria
ted the remaining $9,50 to her own purposes, on
the ground that - the sick woman owed her that
Another member of a committee was asked
for money by a large, robust, healthy. Irishman.
He replied that he was able to work-that there
was great demand for laborers-and that he
would find no difficulty in obtaining employment
still he gave hint two dollars to supply his imme
diate wants. "And be this all ye are going to
give me ?" indignantly inquired the burly Iri.h.

the money back into the face of the donor !

them to change the form (,f their benefactions,

T1he police speedily demnoli.-hed the house, and
the trains pas~sed ott. The excitement was so
great thtat it was w itht difliculty the people were
deterred fronm injuiring liawes. The reason gi

to revenge himself in the manner stated.
