" Blessad are they who die in the Lord."
DY ALF. BUaSETT.
I watched beside a dying child,
And mourners stood around,
While others wept, he only smiled
4nd prayed to lie unbound
Prayed that his spirit might go free,
And soar to realms a far
Immortal realms of purity,
Beyond the shining star!
I stood beside a maiden fair,
When on her dying bed
And saw the tears of d'rk despair
By friends, and loved ones, shed:
But smiles alone lit up her eye,
As when she bade farewell;
In death's cold arms, she fell!
I stood beside a dying man,
In agony and pain
* His cheek was thin, and pale-and wan
And fever racked his brain!
Yet ever and anon, he prayed,
And with his latest breath,
Did tell of wondrous love, essayed
Of love, unquenched in death!
I gazed on o-e whose locks were gray,
Whose form was bent with years,
Who'd journey'd down life's weary way,
Amid its smiles and tears;
I saw him tottering toward the grave,
With caln and peaceful breast:
In faith the lid man's heart was brave,
With faith his heart was blest!
Oh! blessed hope, to mortals given,
Which, on the bed of death,
Can point the partingpsoul to Iheaven,
With life's last fleeting breath!
Thrice blessed Faith-how pure-how free
Its fountain-how divine
it springeth iever ceasingly
Oh! he it, FATHER, Mine!
THE DUTCR.AN'S EXPERIENCE.
- BY R n U. IBBARD
The testimonies of our brethren who have
attested that God is merciful and good, as I have
often heard them in our love tast., are not
only instructive but also always animate and
cheer the soul. And although some of our
Dutch brethren speak English incorrectly yet
to hear them relate the means of their conver
sion, as I have heard some, at once evinces their
sincerity and is the evidence of the work of
God's grace in tLeir hearts. I wish I could re
late one as it was spoken in love feast more than
thirty years ago, when the Methodists first be
gan to preach in the northern part of the State
of New York. I have forgotten his name, but
the substance of his testimony is as follows. IHe
said, "Mine dear bredren, I want to tell you
nomo iine experience. When de Mttodist
first came into deie parts, I toL I was doing very
well' for mine wife and I had two sons, Ned.
and Jiam; and we had1 a good farim dat Ned and:
I could work very well, so I let .Jimn go' out te
work about fourtecen miles off fronm home. Bui
de Metodists c.umne into our parts and Neddy
went to dare meeinig, and he got converted, and
I tot we shord all be undone; so [ tohld Ned be
must not go to dese Metodists meeting for sc
much praying, and so much goin' to meet i
would ruin us all. But Nedldy said, 'C) fader,1
must serve de Lord, and save miy soul.' Ut
said, ' ycu must do do work too.' So I gav<
him a hard stint on de day of dare imeetinig
but he wor'' so hard dat he got his stint done
and went to he meeting after all. While I sel
on my stoop and smoked mine pipe I see bin
go up dehbill to de Metodist meeting ; and I sait
to mine wire Elizabet, ' we shall be undone, foi
our Ned will go to dese meetings;' and she said
'What can we do ?'-' Well,' I satid, ' den ivwil
stint him hardler,' and so I did several time:
when de meetinga conme. But Neddy worke<
hard and sonmetinmes he got seine boys to helj
him, so dat he would go oftr to de meeting
while I set on mine stoop and smoked unmi
pipe I could see Ned go over de hill. 1 said on
day, '0O mine Got, what can I do--dis boy wi1l
go to dese meetings after all I can do.' So wher
Ned come homie I said, ' Ned you mxust leavi
ol going to dose meetings, or I wvil! send foi
Jim to come home, and send you away.' 't.
fader, I must serve de Lord and save my soul.
' Well, den I will send for Jium,' so I sent foi
.Jimn ; and when Jim come home. den I heart
he had been to the Metodist meeting where he
had lived, and was conver'ted too. And Net
and Jim both said, 'U fader, we miust arv de
Lord, and save our sotds.' But I said to mim
wife, ' D)ese Metodi:-t must be wrong ; da wil
undo us all, fihr da have got Neil and Jim bot:
I wish you wonid go to dare meeting, and vol
can see waat is wrung ; but Nedl and Jim can'
see it.' So dl. next mzeetinmg day de old womam
went wizd Ned and .Jim. But I set on miii
stuoop, and smoked mine pipe. But I said te
mineself, 'I ge:.s dese 3Metodlists havc got danr
mnatch to get the old wvonman, and she wi .se<
what'~s wronig. So I smoked mine11 pipe, am
lookt to see demi conie back. By and by I ses
dem coinlg ; and when da come near I see de
tears run down mine wife's face. Den I said
'0O mine (ut, da have got die old woman too.
I tot I was undone, for da have got Nod ant
Jim and de old woman, and when da come o:
de stoop, mine wife said, '0 we must not speal
against dis people of Got.' Bitt I said notun
for I had not been to any of dese meetings, so
was in great trouble. But in a fewv days after
heard dat dare was a Presbyterian muissioniara
going to preach a little ways off; so I toti
would not hurt any body to go to dis meeting
and I went wid Ned and Jim, and mine wife
aind he preacht but dare was nothing done ti]
after de meeting was over, and deni d:tre was
two young men in de toder room dat sung an<
prayed so good as any body ; and da p~rayedl foi
dare old haider too. And many cried and I to
dat di prayed very weel.
After dis I was going out of the door to go home
'and a woman said to me, ' Mr. -, you mnua
be a happy man to have two .,ueh voting me:~
as denm dat pirayed.' 1 .-aid, 'Wats tdat Ned an'
.Jim?' She said, 'Yes.' ) I felt so mnail te
tink da had prayed for me, and expos.edl me he
fore all do people. But I said nothing, but wens
right to bed. But now mine mind wa:s morn
troubled dan ever before, for I began to tii
how wicked I was to stint poor Neddy so hard
and try to hinder him from savimg his soul-bu
I said noting; so I tried to go to sleep; but a
soon as I shut tuine eyes, I could see Ned gomn
over de hill to go to his meeting, after he ha
done his hard stint, so tired and weary. Den
felt worse and worse ; and by and by'I groanei
ont and mine wife axt what's de matter, I said
'I believe!I am dying.' She said, ' Shall T cal
up Ned and Jim ?' 1 said, ' Yes." And Jim cain
to de beud and said, '0O fader, what is do mat.
terV? I said, 'I believe!I am dying.' And hi
sail, 'Fader shall I pray f.'r you ?' I said, '(
yes and Neddy too.' And glory be to Got, I be
lieve he heard de prayer for dough I felt ni
si,s like a mountain load to sink me down, t<
hell, I ci ied, '0O Got, have mercy on me a poo:
sinner;' and by and by I feel soimeting run all
over mue, and split miine heart all to pieces; and
I felt so humble and so loving dait I rejoice and
praise Got, and I am resolved to serve Got mut
Ned and Jim and mine wife, and de Metodists.
N~o poverty there ! Millions of good men
have left the earth poor ; but never has one
entered Iheaven poor. Lazarus the moment be
fore he,died, was a beggar at the gate, but in ai
inom~nt after his death his estate Tiad grown so
dast that the haughty worldling, still survivzg
in all his influence, in comparison with him was
a penniless pauper. 0, poor believer ! rejoice
in prospett of your grand inheritance ! It is
"incoirrtr tible, undefiled and fadeth not away."
it.i a if.:.m..as inestimable. unsneakable.
Has it not been your endeavor to "lay up (for
yourself) treasures in Heaven?" Why not of.
tener think of results there ? Fear not. There
is good news from that " far country." Unsuc
cessful as you may seem on earth, your Heav- f<
enly schemes have all prospered.
The treasury of 'God overflows with your
wealth. And it is safe-perfectly safe. Neither
" moth nor rust" corrupts it ; nor can " thieves"
break through t. steal it. Moreover, it shall in.
crease-forever increase. As long as you live 9
on earth, you may add to the principal, and its
interest will multiply. beyond all computation,
to all eternity. Croasus was rich, Solomon was
rich, Luculus was rich, and the Rothschilds are
rich-but the humblest heir of God is richer far
than all. It may be that the stores you have
already accumulated in Heaven, would'buy this
town, buy the district, buy our country. buy the
world-and still be comparatively untouched.
Nay, think not this extravagant I I would not
barter the heritage of the most destitute of
Christians for the whole globe and all its im
I provements. Lift up your heart ; let it expand,
and fill and overflow with bliss. At the close of P
the short journey through time, you will see
eternity open before you, all radiant with the
variety of your boundless and endless posses
sions. Be not proud, indeed-alas, for the folly 1i
of all pride !-but, be grateful, thankful, hope
ful and happy.-Stockton's Sermons.

" You saved my life," the master said,
" At risk of yours, my faithful Ned;
And that a service so immense
May fail not of such recompense
As lies in human means to make,
(Would mine were god-like, for your sake!)
Three dearest wishes straight unfold,
Each shall be granted soon as told."
"Well den," grinned Ned with ivory show,
"Since massa please to hab it so,
My firs' s'ai be for-for-eyah!
As much good old peach-brandy, sab,
As dis 'ere darkie an' his wife
Can jubiLite in all deir life.
De nex'-Virginia weed enough
For me to smoke an' her to snuff,
Till life's las' mile-stone s'al be past."
"It shall be so, Ned-now the last!"
"Lie las'-hem-gorry! let me see
Wat s'al it in partie'lar be I
Oh! now I habl him-chee, e'yah ?
A leetle more peach-brandy, sah!"
As old negro preacher in Alahaina, of th
Methodist persuasion, had cherished the hitter
est dislike for Mississippi ever since it repudiated
its debts. On oune bright. Sabbath morning,
when addressing a large ebony audience in Ahn
bama. lie showed, by the following exhortation,
that, in spite of his devotional appearance, lie
was subject to the influence of worldly passions.
Having under consideration that 'portionu of'
Scripture promising that the Gospel shall be
preached to all the nations of the earth, he said:
-My beluved bruthrin, now is the excepted
time! The day of judgment is near at hand
whenl all the people of the earth doin heard the
Word.of the Lord preached. The ministers ob
Iie Gospil had done dere work in Ashur and ini
