Trnst in God, and Persevere.
Brother, is life's morning clouded,
Hus tho sunlight conscd to shino ?
Is tho earth in darkness shrouded,
Would'at thou at thy lot repine ?
Choer up, brother, let thy vision
Look above, seo ! light is near,
Soon viii corns the next transition,
" Trust in God, and persevere." .
Brother, bas life's hope receded,
Hast thou sought ils joys in vain ?

Brother, ill things round are Calling
With uuited voice, " be strong !"
Tb .ugh the wr ings of earth be galling,
They uiu-t lose tho:.r strength ere long.

Brother) there's :.. quiet slumber
Waiting for thee in thc grave ;

Christ in mercy deigns to save;
Wait, then, till life's quiet even

Sui Luveugoou and his Dad's Dorg.
At tlic request ol' our t; Devil" we re
publish " Sut LuveugdodV' pla? of burst
i ig up a '' wuihless old bouu dorg." Jt
is an old siory, but a good one, and will
bear repetition :
When 1 wer a boy, and my legs not
longer than John Wentworth's, dad ibtch
ed home a du med wurthless, mangy, flea
bitten, gray old lox noun, good for nuth
illg but to swal 1er up what ot ter lined the
bowels of his brats. Well, I naturally
took a distaste to lum, and had a sort ot
hankerin arter hurtin his feelings and dis
cumfortiti ov him every time dad's back
wer turned. This sorter kept a big skeer
allers afore his eyes, and a orful yell
ready to pour cut thc first motion he
seed mc make. So he larnt to swaller
things as he run, and allers kept his laigs
-well under himself, for he never knowd
how soon he might want to use em in
totin his infernal carcus beyond the reach
ov a fl vin rock. Ile kuowed the whiz ov
a rock in mos! un well, and he never stopt
tu see wli? flung it, but just let his head
fly open tu gin a howl room -to cum, and
set-his laigs a gwyin the way his nose
happened to bc pintin. He'd shy round
every rock he seed in the road, for he
looked, upon it as a calamity tu cum arter
him sum day. I tell you, Georgy, that
runnin is the greatest invention on earth,
when used keerfully". Whar'd 1 a bin by
this time ef I hadn't relied on these legs?
D'ye see em ? Don't they mind you ov
a pair of campusses made to divide the
miles into quarters? They'll do.
Well, one day, I tuck a pigs bladder
ni unto the size ov a duck's aig, and filled
it with powder and corked it up with a
piece ov spunk, rolled it up in a thin
sculp ov meat, and sot the spunk a fire,
and flung it out; he swaliered it at a
jerk, aud sot into gitting away fur doin
it. I hearn a noise like bustin somethin,
and his tail lit on top of my hat. His
hean were a way down the hill and hit
took a death hold outer a root. His fore
legs were.fifty feet up the road makin
ruunin moshuns, and his hind, ones a
straddil ov a fence. Es tu the dorg his
self, cs a dorg, I never seed him agin.
Well, dad, durn his onsanctified soul,
flung five or six hundred under my shirt
with thc dried hide of* a bull's tail, and
gave mc thc remainder next day with a
wagon whip he borrowed from a fellow
who was waterin bis bosses; the wagoner
got sorry for me, and hollered me to turn
my beggin and squallin into first rate
running, which I cmojutely did, thanks to
thes ere ham strings, and the last lick
missed mo about ten feet.-Std Lnven
Not long since, a middle-aged gentle
man and a young ''ady happened to be
tho only passengers starting that morning
in the stage for J-. They were
strangers to each other. The lady was
carrying a large white rabbit-a pet.
Just before the stage stopped at a toll
gate, the lady asked thc gentleman to
hold the rabbit a moment, while she ar
ranged some of her p ackages. He took it.
covered it in his sha ?vi, and snugged it i
a manner quite fatherly. The gatekeepe
noticed it, asked if it was their child and
unwell. The gentleman replied, "Yes
our first-born, the poor thing!"' After
the vehicle had resumed its journey, the
gentleman handed back the pet, saying,
" What beautiful eyes-just like its moth
er's!" "Yes," responded the damsel
" and ears just like its father's !"
--? * ?
DUST AND GIRLS.-A few Sabbath
since Eda was, at her own request, allow
ed to gd to Sabbath School, her first time
and there she learned the startling intelli
gence that she was made of dust. Li ttl
Eda's mind was fulty impressed with the
importance of the great truth, as was
evinced by her frequent reference to the
subject, in the shape of questions answera
ble. This morning, however, she pro
pounded a stunner, which brought down
the house. Intently watching her mother
sweeping, as if to learn the art she must
finally practice, saying not a word, her
eyes rested on the little pile of dirt ac
cumulated by her mother's broom. Just
as the dirt was to be swept into the street,
the little -philosopher burst forth with
"Ma, ma! why don't you save tho dust
to make some more little girls?"
GOING TO II-L ALIVE.-At a farm
house recently, in the lower end of Knox
county, some one at the supper table had
been reading (he Governor's proclama
tion calling out the militia. The old lady
listened with painful attention. Dropping
her knife and fork and wiping her mouth
with the comer of her apron, she broke
forth : u I just believe this war ain't over
yet. These folks are goin' to begin to
shoot one another again. I'll tell you,
folks, what it is, if Brownlow don't die
soon he'll go to h-1 alive." After which
she finished her supper.
. ? -?- ?
When the celebrated Patrick Henry,
o/ Virginia, was near the close of his life,
f.nd in feeble health, he laid his hand on
thc Bible, and addressed a friend who
was with him: "Here is a book worth
more than all others printed : yet it is
my misfortune never to have read it with
prppor sttee&ii at?! bfefy" About ti?
same time he wrote to his daughter : " I
have heard it said that Deists have claim
ed me. The thought pained me more
thau the appellation of Tory ; for I con
sider religion of infinitely higher impor
tance than politics, and I find much causo
to reproach myself that I have lived so
long and given no decided public proof
of my being a Christian."
<. Don't Like My Business."
There is no greatet fallacy in the world
than that entertained by many young
men that some pursuit in life can be found
wholly suited to their tastes, whims and
fancies. This philosopher's stone can
never be discovered, and every one who
makes Iiis life a search for it will be ra
ined. .Much truth is contained in the
Irishman's remark : 11 lt is uiver aisy to
work hurd." Let, therefore, the fact, be
always remembered by tho young, thal
no life-work can be found entirely agreea
ble to a man. Success always lies at
the top of a hill ; if we would reach if,
we can do so only by hard, persevering
effort, vhile beset with difficulties of
every kind. Genius counts nothing in
the battle of life. Determined, obstinate
perseverance in one single channel, is
everything. Hence, should any one pf
our young readers be debating in hi*
mind a change nf business, imagining he
has a genius fur some other, hit.him at
once dismiss the thought, as he would a
temptation to do evil. If you think you
made a mistake in choosing the pursuit
or profession you did, don't make another
by leaving it. Spend all your energies
in working for and clingi.ig to it, as you
would to the life boat that sustained you
in the middle nf the ocean. If you leave
?'it, it is almost certain that yon will go
down ; .but if you cling to it, infirming
yourself about it until you are its mas
ter, bending your every energy to the
work, success is certain. Good, hard,
honest effort steadily parserved in, will
make your business br profession grow,
since no one sh""ld expect to reach a
period when he can feel that.his life-work
is just the one he could have done best,
and'liked best. We are allowed to see
and feel the roughness in our own path
way, -but not in others; yet all have
*! BEAUTIFUL UIVER."-- Sabbath day
is the beautiful river in the weeu of time.
The other days are all troubled streams,
whose angry waters are disturbed by the
countless crafts that float upon them ; but
the pure river Sabbath flows on to eternal
rest, chanting the sublime music of the
silent, throbbing spheres, and timed by
the pulsations of the everlasting life.
Beautiful river Sabbath, glide on ! Bear
forth on thy bosom the poor, tired spirit,
to the rest which it seeks, and the weary,
watching soul to endless bliss!
