SATURDY NIGIT AND SUNDAY MORNING
Another week is about to go to that eternity
which awaits all mortals. There are many
things connected with the last day of the week
which have, to us, a peculiar pleasure and do
light. Saturday night is a good time to square
up all accounts and make ready a clean pago
for the next .Monday's operations. It is also a
very proper period to devote a littlo time to sell
examination-to canvass acts for the week that
is past, and see how far, or how well you have
done your duty as a man, a neighbor, a chris
tian a philanthropist.
Iiow many kind little offlices have you done
for the poor that live within a stune's throw of
your door, or how often have you gone out of
your way to do good and render assistance to
ihose who are the proper and worthy objects of
your benevolence. He that has no respect for
the poor or the aged about him, is the most pitia
ble of all earthly objects. Such a soul will
stand a fair chance of reaping, in no stinted
measure, the same neglect (at least in heart)
when his feet totter over the grave and the chill
winds of death fan his brow. To love your fel
low-man, no matter what may be his condition
in society, is noble, is God-like. Honesty of
purpose and integr'ty of soul are genuine quali
ties of a true man. We care not what may be
the condition of a fellow-mortal, even if he be
as poor as Lazarus, and his motive be that of
love to all, he is more worthy of the considera
tion and respect than the rich and aristocratic,
if there be defects in their moral character. The
true foundation of distinction is not in position
or wealth, but in the conduct of life.
Look on no man as beneath you, simply be
cause lie labors in the field, at the forge. or in
the shop: for, in truth, you are nore likely to
find the real mant in such places than in the ban
kers, brokers, and speculators of a Wall street,
or the pampered aristocrats of a Fifth Avenue.
Labor is dignified-and to an honest, upright
man, who earns his daily bread " bvy the sweat of
his brow," Saturday night is ever a welcome
season to him. Th-re are a th.,usand things
that cluster around this night. that make it the
sweetest and happiest tine of the whole week.
Truly is Saturday iight " one of the golden cov
ers 'f the Sabbath."
Scu- Monsisu! TuAm: Go roa vuE SAB
nATh u-After six weary days of toil and care,
and business anxiety, how delightfid is the com
ing of the Sabbath ! The wheel of Ixion ceases
in its turning evolutiuns, the stone of Sisyphus
pauses upon the hill side, the back is eased of
its burden, the mind is lifted from the thoughts
of daily cares and avocations, to the contempia
tiou of higher and more ennobling themes. The
Sabbath is a glorious institution. To the beast
at the plow, to the artizan in his workshop, to
the chemist in his laboratory, to the professional
man amid his booka, and to the author with his
pen-comes the Sabbath with a like blessing
A FATIER'S SORROW.
At a public gathering, a few days ago, a father
sought his son, late in the evening, among the
drunken rable around the whiakey carts, and
persuaded him to go home. The son was drunk
as the drunkest, and, in return for his father's
solicitude, he cursed him with a horrid oath and
hil him go ubout his own business and let him
alon 1. e re proached him with curses for not
twaehing him belter when he was young and
under his authority, and assured him that he
was now free and 'ould exercise his own idea
sure its to his conduct. besides warning him
about meddling with him. With a sorrowful
huart the old niun turned away leaving his son
among the drauikards as vile as the vilest. What
that fatthers feelinigs were we leave the reader
We have no desire to reproach that father fo.r
the course he pur-sued years ago with his son or
to add to the bitterness of his cup, baut we do
desire to call the attention of parents to the tim
portance of teaching their children to abhor the
accursed poison that so brutalizes those who
imbibe it. Parents have it in their power, lay
strict abstinence thtemselves and by their j udi
eions tuition, to so rear their sona that, when
they reach manhood's estate. they will shun and
abhor everything that intoxicates. This canniot
be done if'the parent drinks or in any wise
countenances the mractice. If he takes his
dram, and if he spe'aks to his family in a slight
ly, sarcastic mannier, of the various temperance
organizations, he may reasonably expect his
sons to be drunikards and to experienice all the
sorrow, and anguish, and bitterniess incident to
such terrible calamity, even to being cursed by
a drunken son.
We pity such a parent-his cup of sorrow is a
bitter one and he might pray that los gray hairs
might find an early resting place in the grave.
Trhe responsibilities of parents are great, very
great, and happily if, in the evening of life, they
can east a retrospective glance over the past
and say, towards my children I have discharged
every duty, and warned them by precept and ex
ample of'the snares anid dangers that beset life's
path way:; if they have gone estray andi fallen
into evil wanys it is because they have disregarded
nmy precepts and set at naught my counsels.
Spirit of the Age.
Extravagance miarks almost all classes, high
and low.) Uriven by the common impulse, the
rich and poor are alike on a career of reckless
prodigality. ])isdain ing the sobriety of former
times, when a less gaudy and conceited style
prevailed, the society of our day runs with pre
eipitate haste after native and inmportedl extrava
gances ini habitations, personal apparel, enter
tainments and amusements, whose chief recom
mendation is their exorbitant prie. whose p~rin
eipal charm is novelty, and whose I'ruit is first a
paltry boast, and after that dissatisfaction and
disgust. The ostentation of "high living'' is
thus found in close allianice with "meani think
ing." Wealth is soug'ht with intense covetous
ness, for the indulgence of the lower propensi
ties ; and when it is acquired often by resorting
to base expedimnents, it is profusely lavishod to
gratify a depraved appetite for costly luxuiries,
and an uncultiv-ated taste for fine thingp. Hence
the rag. fori foreign wor-ks ot' art, foreign faush
io~ns, and1 foreign manners ; and with those imn
portatins are inevitably joined the introduction
of foreign morals too-the exeerable vices of
the licentious capitals of Europe-to demooral
ize American society, tinder the color of refine
ment and civilization. Nameless abominations
are there which must needs be spoken of in a
foreign dialect to make theta exquisitely polite
Under such combined fascinations, the virtu
ous simplicity of Iormzer days is rapidly givinag
place to an drt i/iial life which permits no re
atraints upon its demands. It lays all resources
unider- contribution. It takes labor and taxes
capital to the utmost. It drains the country of
its produtts, and then fails at the rate of mnil
lions to balance the account with our foreign
trade. The exportation of bullion to Europe is
carried on almost without intermission to pay
for luxuries and fancy goods, imported in profu
sion to satisf - the imperious demands of vanity
and lust. Vu e are the laughing-stock of Euro
peans. Any thitng will sell in America, if it has
a niovel style however garish, and a foreign label
however utterable. Genuine refinement is smoth
ered amid chemical perfumes, good taste is put
to the blush upon a pyramid of furbelows and
fowers. Civility plays attendance upon French
cooks and (lancing masters, and chastity dwells
among nude statuary.-Lindsley.
WHi 1M3ornE Uir~t~.o than to see
an old gray-headed man whiose sands of life are
nearly run, prancing andi stagering in the

Drunkenness is a vice most foul at best, but
in this case, " most foul, strange and unnatural.'
Youth may &ave some excuse, or palliation for
this vice, iii the recklessness and violence of
passion, incident to this sowing season of their
" wild oats," but old age has none. That illu
sive period has long since flown away, and while
we may look upon the follies of youth, with the
hope of a timely reform, and an ultimate virtu
ous life, we look upon the vices of age with
horror and disgust, and we draw the natural in
ference, that the necessary consequences of a
depraved Youth is a licentious life and an abomi
nable old iage."-Crusader.
Wz have already once published the following
but every one will read it again with pleasurable
emotions, and thank us for the opportunity.
It was a grand day in the old chivalric timei
the wine circling around the board in a noble hall
and the sculptured walls rang with sentiment and
The lady of each knightly heart was pledged
aloud by name, and many a syllable significant o
loveliness had been uttered, until it came St. Leon's
turn, when, lifing the sparkling cup on high
"I drink to one," he said,
" Whose image never may depart,
Deep graven on this grateful heart,
Till memory is dead.
"To one whose love for me shall last,
When lighter passions long have passed,
So holy 'tis and true:
To one whose love hath longer dwelt,
More deeply fixed, more keenly felt,
Than any pledged to you."
Each guest up started at the word,
And laid a hand upon his sword,
With fury flashing eye:
And Stanley said: "We crave the nume,
Proud knight, of this most peerless dame,
Whose love you count so high."
St. Leon paused, as if he would
Not breathe her name in careless mood,
Thus lightly to another;
Then bent his noble head as though
To give t:'at word the reverence due,
And gently said, " My Mother."
Wonas.-Soft words soften the soul. Angry
words are fuel to the flame of wrath, and make
it blaze more freely. Kind words make othei
people good-natured-cold words freeze people
and hot words scorch them, and bitter words
make them wrathful. There is sth a rush o1
all other kinds of words, that it seems desirahk
to give kind words a chance among them. There
are vain words, and hasty words, and spiteful
warda, gild silly words, and empty words, and
profane word.;, ipnd boisterous words, and war
like words. Kind words also produce their imn
age on men's sOuls, an' a beautiful image it is

I,,gvE FOR THE~ DE:AD.-The love that survive;
the tomb. says Irving, is one of the noblest at
tributes of the sotil. If it has its woes, it ha;
likewise its xlelights; and wheun the overwhelm
ing burst of grief is calmed into the gentle tea
of recollection, then the sudden anguished anm
convulsed agony is over, the present ruins o
that we most loved are softened away into pen~
sive meditation on all that it was in the dmfy o
its lovelinmess. Who would root sorrow frotm'th'
heart, though it may sometimes throw a passinI
cloud over the bright hour of gayety, or sprea<
a deeper sadness over the hour of gloom ?-Ye
who would exchange it for eaven the song o
pleasure or the burst of revelry ? No, therei
a voice from the toigb swceter than song; ther
is trememibrance of the dead to which we turi
eveu from the charm of the liung.
