OUR LOST ;2 TT1E.
BY D. HARDY, JR.
As 'round the earth closes.
Nigbt-shades with a sigh,
As the violet closes
Its meek dewy eye,
So.tbe eyes of our ov'd one.
losed-geatly in death-K
As the flowers yield perfume,
he yielded her breath.
As folds the sweet snow-bird,
It% soft wings in rest,
a her fair -bands were folded
'erher inottoniebs breast,
11'the lily-is sioa-white,
As pale Is the snow,
ao the ct ee of our Nettie,
Grew pale long ago.
As tades 2he light rosa,
When night's ebon wings,
- 'Arefolded in silence,
a ''er eaith's pulseess things,
As fades the bright flowers
When autumn draws nigh,
So our cherished one faded,
And laid down to die.
As the night winds sweegsadly
O'er each 'afiess bougb.
So the Death angel's plnions
Swept sad o'er her *row
As the sunny floivers itse<
A. soof as they bloom,.
So our Nettie has perished,
And rests in the tomb. -
As passes life's dreamings,
So fair and so bright,
As the golden-hu'd moments
Pass quickly from sight,
As we.know all that's earthly
Mus t pass and decay,
So we knew that our darling
As a crushed heart weeps over
The wrecked hope of years,
As the bright face of Heaven
Is spotted-with tears,
That are ejled stars by mortals,
So o'er her we wept,
That the grave's wings so dusky,
O'er our Nettie bad swept.

explained to him that many hands i

.the highly organized co.operation

was utterly disgusted to find that
certain articles in the Christian

A good editor. -a competent
newspaper conductor, is like. a
general or a pdert-born not made.
On . tbe, London daily papers all
the; historians, novelists,poets and
essayists have been employed,
and nearly all have failed. We
iight say all, for afer. display
ofbrilliancy, brief but grand, they
died out literally. Their resoureb
were exhausted. '1 can,' said .a
late"editor of the Times to Moore,
'find any number of' men of genius
to write for us, but very seldom
one of common sense.' The 'than
derers' on -the Times, therefore,
have~; so far as vye know, been
me~n of common sense. Nearly all
successful editors have been m.m of
this description. Campbell, BuI
wer, and Disraeli failed ; Barnes,
Sterling, and Phillips succeeded.
A good editor seldom writes for
his paper. He reads, judges, se.
lects, dictates, alters and com-.
bines ; and to do all this well he
has but little time for composition.
To wr'ite for a paper is one tbing,
to edit a paper is another.
One of the most fatal temptations to
the weak *is a slight deviation from
the truth, for the sake of apparent
It. is one of the worst errors to
suppose that there is any other path
of safety except that of duty.
Adversity is the. trial of principle.
Without it a man hardly knows
whether he is honest or not.
All nature is a vast symbolism;
every material fact has sheathed with
in it a spiritual truth.
Anger ventilated often hurries to.
ward forgiveness; anger concealed
often hardens into revenge.
It seems that the men who arn't
wauted here are men who ain't want-1
ed in the other world.
As we must render an account of
every idle word, so riiust we likewise
of our idle silence.
