Four thousand long ??.1 weary year?,
With yearnluajhoaits, with siralulng ?jet,
Th? Nation? wallet!-galed through tears,
To ?co th? Chrlitma* Star ?risa.'
F.-ur thousand year? t?i?y ?ifbed and moaned,
White curie .bound Earth in dnrkuc.s lay,
Ia puiw. in furrow, travail groaned,
Aa ?lutrly waned the night away.
It win a long protracted night,
And gloomy too, a? lt wa? long,
Whait tn?n I ny watching for tb? light,
And lUlcniug for tb? angela' ?ung.
Age piled un ngr, peneo followed war?,
Proud generations travelled by,
Men labored ?in, looked at the ? tart?,
Hut all unchanged appeared the sky.
Bright luuitnera came, tireur wittier? went,
Willi icwrching heule, wilt? frigid ?liuw? ;
Faith fitllered not, Hope wa? unspent,
Yet ?till uo Yulo-Tide Slur uro?.
Adam surveyed .Iii? ump of lime,
Aud marvelled much ?hut nge would bear
The Woman'? Si ed-in what blest elimo
The premised Saviour would appear.
Abralutui ?iiW wllb Faith's clear eye,
Upon thc distant Future's brans!,
Tho H..)>. One of prophecy,
"in whom tillmiliuna muid bo blest."
Irrae], through centuries fur,
lleheld a tuft effulgent light.
Il was n ray from Jacob's. .Slur,
Thal cheered his patriarchal tight,
lattias, lu a vision, saw
Tho Mighty Hod o( Israel,
And cried with mingled love und uwe,
"ile will be cnllcd Kmuiunuel."
Urcat clouds ol* Prophets had foretold
That a Messins would nppcar,
A Dispensation lo unfold,
Of ilraco nud I.ovo, inste id cf Fear.
The Priests and I.evitcs'of the Law,
lu blood of Bullock ?md of limn,
lu all tho Temple's figures, ?aw
Tho shadow ol' The Spotless Lu mb.
?um ugo tongo, that Priesthood prayed
For tho Salvation ol'(he Lord,
Aud wondered why thc t-'utber stayed
So long, the advent nf the Word.
They knew ilutt Hod their fulhcrt fed
With mulina, lu thu solitude,
Aud litigad to ta ?ic the li? ing bread,
Timi purer, more celestial food.
They therefore waitui!, watvhtd and prayed
. lite blossoming of Aaron's rod,
Tho coming of that peerless muid
'Ibu .Motbor of thu fun of (.iud.
They noted, studied every sign,
Through the martling of creation,
And luoksd with hope lo David's line,
For tho uatiwu's expectation.
All who were "I.<>rntlitct Indeed."
Desired lo se? Me.?.ins cmno
The Saviour sprung from Abram's seed,
To open their celestial home.
Their Scriptures taught that Christ would brcuk
Hell'? aneient power, und set them free,
That He, the sleeping saints would wilke,
And lose thom from captivity ;
That Ile Would crush the serpent's bend,
Parry tho force of Adam's fall,
tlucaor thc liringaiid|lhodead,
Whom Satan held so long In thrill).
Out not tlie'Israelttcs alone,
Wishesj.for the ending of the night;
The (le H tile, wm ld desired il gone,
And craved the dawning of their Light.
Aeadetnieians had appliud
Th? lens of proud Philosophy,
Life's ubitruto riddlo to decide
To solve Man's ?ml and destiny.
They delved with subtle skill und url.
These wondrous secrets lo unmask.
Dut without cum}.m J. without chart.
They wcro unequal (ollie tnsk.
Tho Pagan world, the Hantken Mind,
Rssay.d their ulrcugth, their energy,
But could no netting balsam find,
For human ills mid misery.
The age nf Prophecy was tone,
And carling tokens every M hire,
Tint her long night was utmost gono
That ??.on her Saviour would appear.
The gr mt A rehanged had apr cured
Before tt maid of matchless Worth,
And in lier wondering ears declared
That she would bring that Saviour forth.
Xime fullness came, the ange]* gu xv ri
From Mearon upon tho wolplraus sight
Upon the east ern sky there blazed
A strange portentous globo of light.
O'er Jewry's plains, all rubed in snow.",
WhiU shepherds watched willi listless oyo
Their sleeping flocks, n slur arose,
Whoso gl?ry Hashed throughout the shy.
It was the star nf Itcthlehem,
Whits* splwml ir broke upon ihn carib!
?Thsl flamed un heaven's diadem.
And heralded tho Saviour's birth,
The moment that Its light appeared,
Ten thott.?ntid ruilianl angels sung
Au Anthem carib had never lu'ard,
Ami which w ll never morel>e sung,
(llor?n in ex col.? i s pealed
Fruin that somphle huming throng,
While over as their columns wheeled,
They thundered forth anew H w song.
And yet again those songsters sung
ihat Ilea von born anthem through the plain,
Until lim star? rn' Morning sun*.
And bore ulr.fl Ilia swelling ?train.
The star ascended till it Kt-o-l
Above ll.rib of Ituthleheni.

OBITUARY
Tbc Subject of this notice, MRS. ELIZA
BK Til GILBERT, was born io tho city of New
York, Deo. ?3d, 16*03, und died at Florence, S.
G., Dec. 21st, 1809, and ber mortui remaios were
Interred'in tbe Cemetery of Sumter, S. Ci on her
sixty sixth birthday, by tho side of Johu C. T.
dilbert, hor youugest sou, ? viotim of tho war.
Mos. OILBKHT recoived ber early educational
training partly in thu city of Now York, and
partly iu tho town of Camden, S. C. She was
married, in tho yoar 1822, to Mr. Amos A.Hilbert,
of New Davon, Connecticut. Sbo connected
herself with tho Presbyterian Church iu carly
girlhood und continued a momber of it to tho
timo of her death. Sbo wu? for many years a
member of tho Church ut Waltcrboro', S. C., un?
der the pastoral caro of tho Kev. Edward Pal?
mer, for whom sho eutortuincd tho greatest nf
fuction as a pastor and friend, She closed her
earthly career in connexion with the Presbyte?
rian Church, Sumter, S. C. She leaves as obiof
mourners, turo sons and three, daughters, with
numerous friends sympathizing with thom in
their gi eat grief.
Mrs. Gilbert was loft a widow with six chil?
dren, whlloyot tho oldest was only twelve years
of age. How she met this great responsibility, in
tlie midst of manifold struggles, tho energy and
usefulness of these onco helpless ones, sufficient?
ly testify. The eurliest recollections of ber chil?
dren, uro associated most tenderly with tho pray?
ers and religious instructions and wise couusols
of their venerated and lamented mother.
Sho was of foc?le frame and health, but ber
great energy of character und hor abiding fulth
in tho God of tho widow, powerfully sustained her
in the midst of uOlictions and trials, which
would biive overwhelmed and Crushed many,
not so constituted, not so trustful lu an ovcrru
lii g Providence
But her energy had n wider reach for its ex?
ercise, than tho family circle. Sbo loved tho
cause und kingdom of tho Mossed Redeemer.
She bud a heurt to pray, nnd a band to labor for
Zion's welfare. "Sho did what sbo cou d" in
tho church of God. Sho devised and executed
liberal things. Sho was nuver idle. Difficulties
in the path of duty never deterred her, but only
oxeitod bur to more determined effort. Sho was
intensely patriotic. Sho clung to hor integrity,
in tho midst of tho wreck and ruin which sur?
rounded her, and lived to seo reluming prosperi?
ty, rising from tho ashes of desolated homes, and
tho utter prostration of every thing connected
witt) her adopted und beloved South, the land
of her children's nativity and ot horbost irlends.
Ono ol ibo Inst labors of those active und never,
tiring fiugors, now palsied in death, was a beau?
tiful work of art, designed us a contributon to
tho Fair recently held in .Sumter, to raise funds
to eruct a tnuuumcnt in memory of tho heroic
young men of tho District, who died tn thu war.
She was a very Dorcas In labors of love and
of mercy. Sho exhibited in u remarkable man?
ner, what an amount of good a determined pur*
poso with a corresponding effort cnn cflcot, with?
out tho aid of largo pecuniary means.
Dui thu timo liad now como when sho must not
in u higher, holier and happier sphere. Tho work
of her Master wus dono upon earth. Sho hud
lived to a purpose Sho had raised her family to
manhood and womanhood. She hud illustrated
Christian character under bereavement, and
adorned tho doctrino of Oed her Saviour in tho
activities of lifo, lier death was u beautiful and
'.ouching commentary upon a lifo spent ia the
service of God. Though this last enemy carno
suddenly, he did not como unexpeetcdly. Sho
wisc no of those wiso ono?, who'always have
their lamps buming and their loins girded. Sho
was reinly, though tho cry of "behold tho brido
groom cometh, go ye out to moot him,'' should
como 'at even, or at midnight or at cook-crowing,
or in Ibo morning-" She feared not tu traverse
"the valley of thc shadow of death," for sbo knew
who had promised tu bo with ber. There wcro
no agitations ol mind, no hurried and unsatisfac?
tory preparations for the mighty future. AU was
calm nud serene She was pleased with every
thing. Just as tho sun bogan to gild tho East,
sho desired tn riso from lier bed, for it was her
u iual hour of rising Sho was told that she was
too weak for such an efTort. But sho insisted
upon it, und sho was accordingly assisted to riso
und was scated in a chair. Having givon some
directions 08 to making her position comfortable,
sho yielded up her spirit, without n strugglo or
iv groan. It was a surprise to nil that sbo lind
survived so long, und it was equally iv surprise
that sho breathed her lust so calmly, so suddenly.
A radiant glow was left upon her fuco, such as
was not seen Ibero in Ufo. Was it not ibo faint
imago ol' immortality which animates that body,
which fell so swiotly uslccp in Jesus? Was it not
a glorious reflection of tho happy depart in ir spir?
it? There it remained fur hours, liko the beauti?
ful Aurora, illuminating tho surrounding dark?
ness. ".She is not dead, but slccpetb."
Death cunio und knocked, knocked quick upon
that dour,
'Twas opened straight, hut angels wcro before
There Jesus stood, anil Death retreated back;
Hu bud no work-his power was tn'on away
There was no need that he should longer stny
Both Soul and dust, lo Jesus now belonged
Ile bought them butti, and would not buvo them
wronged,
Tho happy soul, the angels bore aloft,
Tho budy loft, to sleep in slumbers soft.
High o'er that dust tho Saviour's watchful oyo
I,miks fondly down fruin loftiest-arch of sky,
'Twill not bo long before thnt uwful doy,
When Heaven and Kurth, new glories shall dis
play,
Tho coming Judgo, willi nil his nngcls strong,
This precious dust, will rise and join tho throng,
And brighter shine than splendid morning star
Within that bouso which faith now secs afar.
