Hymn of the Hebrew Maid.
BY SIR WALTER SCOTT.
When Israel, of thc Lord beloved.
Out from the laud of bondage came,
Her father's God before her moved,
An awful guide in smoke and name.
By dav, along the astonished lands
The cloud v pillar glided slow;
Bv night. Arabia's crimsoned sands
"Returned the llery column's glow.
There rose the choral hymn of praise,
And trump and timbrel answered keen;
And Zion's daughters poured their lays,
With priest's and warrior's voice between.
No portents now our foes amaze
Forsaken Israel wanders lone;
Our fathers would not kn ONT Thy ways,
And Thou hast left them to their own.
But, present still, though now unseen,
When brightly shines the prosperous day,
Be thoughts of Thee a cloudy screen,
To temper the deceitful ray.
And oh, when stoops on Judah's path
In shade and storm the frequent night,
Be Thou, long suffering, slow to wrath,
A burning and a shining light !
Onr harps we left by Babel's streams
The tyrant's jest, the Gentile's scorn;
No censer ronnd our altar beams,
And mute are timbrel, trump and horn.
But Thou hast said, the blood of goats,
The flesh of rams. 1 will not prize
A contrite heurt, and humble thoughts,
Are mine accepted sacrifice.
[From the Saturday Review.]
An old proverb says that n burnt child
dreads the Ure; if so, the child must be uncom?
monly astute, anti with a power of reasoning
by analogy in excess of impulsive desire rarely
found either in children or adults. As a mat?
ter of fact, experience alone goes a very- little
way towards directing folks wisely. People
often say how much they should like to live
their lives over again with their presenfexpe
rience; that is, they woidd avoid certain speci?
fic mistakes of the past, of which they have
seen and suffered from thc issue; but if they
retained the same nature, though they might
avoid a few special blunders, they woidd fall
into the same class of errors quite as readily,
the gravitation of character towards circum?
stance being always absolute in its directiou.
Onr blunders in life are not due to ignorance
so much as to temperament; and only thc ex?
ceptionally wise among us learn to correct the
excesses oftempernraent by the lessons ot expe?
rience. To the mass of mankind these lessons
are for the time only, and prophesy nothbig of
the future. They hold them to have been mis?
takes of method, not ol principle.and they think
that the same lines more carefully laid will load
to a better superstructure in the future, not see?
ing that the fault was organic, and in those
very initial lines themselves. No impulsive or
wUdly aopeful person, for instance, ever learns
by experience, so long asjiis physical condi?
tion remains the same; no one with a large
faculty of faith-that is, credulous and easily
imposed on-becomes suspicious or critical by
mere experience. How much soever people of
this kind have been taken in, in times past,
they are just as ready to become the prey of
?he spoiler in times to come; and it would be
sad, if it were not so silly, lo watch how inevi?
tably one half of the world gives itself up? as
food whereon the roguery of the other may
wax fat. The person of ladle confidence,
whose secrets have been blazed abrond more
than once by trusted friends, makes yet anoth?
er and another safe confidant- quite safe this
-'tune, ene ol whose fidelity there is no doubt
? and learns when too hite that i^e panier
.perc? is very like another panter perc?. The
speculating man, without business faculty or
knowledge, who has burnt his fingers bare to
tho bone with handling seri p and stock, thrusts
them Into the fire again as soon as ho has the
chance. The gutnbTcr blows his fingers Just
cool enough to shuffle the cards for this once
only? sure that this time hope will tell no flat?
tering tale, that ravelled ends will knit them?
selves up into a close and seemly garment,
and heaven itself work a miracle in his favor
against the law of mathematical certainty. In
fact are all gamblers iu this way, and play
our hazards for~thc stakes of faith and hope;
we all burn our fingers again and again at
some fire or another;' but experience teaches
us nothing, save perhaps a more hopeless, help
Jess resignation towards that confounded iil
luck of ours, and a weary feeling of having
known it all before when things fall out amiss
and we arc blistered in thc old fire.
In great matters this persistency of endeavor
is sublime, and gets a wealth of laurel crowns
and blue ribbons; but in little things it is ob?
stinacy, want of ability to profit by experience,
denseness of perception as to what can and
what cannot be doue; and the apologue of
Bruce's spider gets tlresomo if too often re?
peated. The most hopelessly Inapt people at
learning why they burnt their fingers last
'? time, and how they will burn them again, are
those who, whatever thoir profession, are
blessed or cursed with what is called the artis?
tic temperament. A man will ruin himself for
love ol a particular plan, for dislike of a cer?
tain kind of necessary work, for the prosecu?
tion of a certain hobby. Is he not artistic,
and most he not have all the conditions of his
life exactly square with his ?fcsires, else how
can he do good work ? So ho goes on burning
his fingers through self-indulgence, and per?
sists in his unwisdom to the end of his life.
He will paint his unsaleable pictures, or write
his. unreadable books; his groove is one in
which the money-paying public will not follow;
but though his very existence depends on the
following ofthat paying public, he will not stir
an inch to meet it, bot keeps where he ls be?
cause he likes the particular run of his furrow, I
*a%l spends his days in thrusting his hand into
the fire cf what he chooses to call the
ideal, and his nights in abusing the
Philistinism of the world which lets
him be burnt. And what does any amount
of experience do for us in thc matter of friend?
ship or love ? As the world goes round, and
our credulous morning darkens into a more
sceptical twilight, we " beliergli a geueral
Srinciple-a mere abstraction^that all new
lends are just so much gilt gingerbread, and
that a very little close holding anti hard rubbing
brings off all the gilt, and leaves nothing but a
slimy, sticky mess of little worih as food, and
of none as ornament. And yet, if of the kind
to whom friendship is necessary for happiness,
we rush as eagerly into the new affection as
If we had never philosophized on the emptiness
of the old, and believe as firmly in the solid
gold of our latest cake ns if we had never
smeared our hands with one ot the same pat?
tern before. So with love. A mun sees his
comrades fluttering like enchanted moths
about some stately man-slayer, some fair and
shining light set like a false beacon on a dan
ferous clrff to lure men to their destruction;
e sees how they singe and burn in the flame
of her beauty, but he ls not warned, ll* one's
own experience teaches one little or nothing,
the experience of others goes for even less,
and no man yet was ever warned off the
destruct ive fire of love because his companions
had burnt their fingers there before him, nnd
his own are sure to follow. It is the same
with women; and In a greater degree. They
know all about Don Juan well enough; they
are perfectly aware how he treated A. aud B.
and C. and D.; but when it comes to their own
turn, they think that this time surely, and to
them, things will be different and he "in earn
? est; and?>'they slide down into the allnring
flame, and burn their fingers for life by play?
ing with forbidden lire. But have we not all
the secret belief that we shall escape the snares
and pitfalls into*'whicn others have dropped,
and among which we choose to walk ? That
fire will not burn our fingers, at least so very
badly, when we thrust them Into lt ? aud that,
by some legerdemain of Providence, we shall
be delivered from the consequences of our
own folly, anti that two and two may be made
to count five in our behalf* Who is taught hy?
the experience of an uuhnprtf marriage, say ?
No sooner has he got himself free from the
Sressure of one chain and bullet, than he
astens to fasten on another, quite sure that
this chain will be no heavier than the daintiest
little thread of gold, and rthis bullet as fight
and sweet as a cowslip ball. Everything will
come right this time lhat had gonc'wrong be?
fore; and the hot bars of close association with
an ungovernable temper and unaccommodat?
ing habite will be ouly like a Juggling trick,
and will burn no one's heart or hands.
People, too, who burn their fingers In giving
good advice unasked, seldom learn to hold
them back. With un honest lutentlon, and a
strong desire to see right done, it Is difficult to
avoid puttlug our hauxls into flies with which
we have no business. While we are young
and ardent, lt seems to us as if we have dis?
tinct buslheas wRh all fraud, injustice, folly,
wilfi?ness, which we believe a few honest
words ol ours will control and annul; but nine
times out often we only burn our own hands,
while we do not lu thc least strengthen those
of ihe right or weajcen those ol' the wroug. We
may say the same of good-uaturcd people.
There was nevera row of chestnuts roasting
at the fire ("<>r which your good-natured oaf will
stretch out his huudat the bidding aud for the
advautage ol a friend. Experience teaches
the poor oaf nothing; not even that lire burns.
To put his name at the back of a bill, just as a
mere form; to lend his muney, just for a few
days; or lo do any other sort of seli'-iiumoiating
folly, on the faithful promise that the fire will
not burn uor the knife cut-itali comes as
easy to men of the good-natured sort as
their alphabet. Indeed it ls their al?
phabet, out of which they spell their own
ruin; but so long as the impressionable tem?
perament lasts. 60 long as the liking to do a
good-natured action is greater than caution,
suspicion, or the power of analogical reason?
ing, so long will the oaf make himself the cats?
paw of the knave, till at last he has left him?
self no lingers wherewith to pluck out the
chestnuts tor himself or another. The first
doubt of young people is always a source of in?
tense suffering. Hitherto they have believed
what thev saw and all they saw;aud they have
not troubled themselves with motives or facts
beyond those given to them or lying on the
surface. But when they find out for themselves
'hat seeming is not necessarily being, and
that all people car not as good throughout as
they thougnt them, then they Buffer a moral
shock which often leads them into a state of
practical atheism and despair. Many young
people give up altogether when they "first be?
gin to read thc book of humanity beyond
the title page ; and because they have found
specks in thc cleanest parts, 'believe that
nothing is left pure. They are as much
bewildered as horror-struck, and can?
not understand how any one they have
loved and respected should have doue
this or that misdeed. Having done it,
there is nothing left to love or respect further.
It is only by degrees that they learn to adjust
and apportion, and to understand that thc
whole creature is not necessarily corrupt be?
cause there arc a few unhealthy places here
aud there; but, in the beginning this first
scorching by the tire of experience ls very
painful and bad to bear. Then they begin to
think the knowledge of thc world, as got from
books, so wonderfid, so profound; and they
look on lt as a science lo be learned by much
studying of aphorisms. They little know that
not the most affluent amount of phrase knowl?
edge can eyer regulate that class of actiou
which springs from a man's inherent disposi?
tion, and that it ls not tacts which reach, but
sell-control which prevents. After very early
youth we all have cnongh theoretical knowl?
edge to keep us straight; but theoretical
knowledge does nothing without self
knowledge, or its corollary, self-control.
The world has never yet got beyond the (
wisdom o'" Proverbs and Ecclesiastes, and |
Solomon's advice to the Israelitish youthJ
lounging round thc gates el tho Tcm-0
pie is quite as applicable to young Hope- "
lid coming up to Loudon chambers as it 'wgs
to them. Teaching of any kind, by books or
events, is the mere brute weapon, but self-con?
trol is thc Intelligent hand to wield it. To
burn one's fingers oucc In a life-time ls no
fault, and tells nothing against a man's com?
mon sense or dignity; but to go on burning
them is thc act of a fool, and we cannot pity
the wounds, however sore they may be. The
Arcadian virtues of unlimited trust and hone
and love arc very sweet and lovely; but they
are thc graces of childhood, not the qualities of
manhood; they arc lovely little finalities, which
?o not adndt of modification or expansion; and
iu a naughty world, to go about with one's
heart upon ono's sleeve, believing every one,
and accepting everything to bc Just as lt pre?
sents itself, is offering bowls of milk to tigers,
and meeting armed men with a tin sword.
Such universal trust can only result in a per?
petual burning of one's fingers; and a life spent
m pulling out hot ohestuuts from thc fire for
another's eating ls by no means the most use?
ful or the most dignified to which man can de?
vote himself. .
Tile Simplicity in which Ula Ilolincrio
[From the Galaxy.j
Those who sec the Pope in state can form
little idea of the simplicity in which the Pontiff
lives. The "King of Italy'' lives worse than a
denizen of a third-rate boarding-house in Now
York. Thc furulture of the Patll Palace would
bo despised by a Canal street broker, and a
dry goods clerk would disdain thc horrible
MUunesc cigars which his Majesty ls eternally
smoking. All of which ls not generally known,
and is very commendable, because it U done
for economy and to save an impoverished ex?
chequer. Yet there is no reason why the Pope
should not live in style becoming a king, but
his own dislike of pomp and naturally t-implc
tastes. Leaving the gilded saloons of the
show part of the palace, you pass through a
door careiully guarded by two of the noble
guard with" drawn swords. A small
passage conducts to the guards' wait?
ing-room, where orderlies und officers in wait?
ing attend. Another room ls allotted to the
groom of tile chambers, a prelate in his vio?
let robes. Thc next is the ante-chamber,
where tho Monsignori, private chamberlains
of his Holiness, are m attendance. Yon tap
at the next door, and il is opened by another
Monsignor, who, assured of your right of
entree, lifts a curtain, aud you are in the
presence. The room strikes you as singu?
larly bare. There is no carpet on thc stone
floor, the articles of furniture are very few
and by no means costly. There Is a large
book-case Ulled with books, mostly bound In
parchment. A prie Dieu with a velvet
cushion; an exquisite little Madonna, by
Cunova, in alabaster, on a bracket, stands
over the prie Dieu, and a well-worn com?
monly-bound book of hours Iles on thc ledge
of tho prto Dieu, together with a crucifix
and reliquary and a common rosary.
There is a little china holy-water stoup
at the door; an exceedingly flue portrait of thc
Pope hangs over the mantleshelf, on which
there is a time-piece of Louis Quinze period,
in ormolu, and two statuettes of St. Joseph
and Ute Uood Shepherd. There are no cur?
tains to the windows, which overlook the
Vatican garden. In thu centre of thc apart?
ment is a large writing desk such as stauds in
thc private cabinet of Louis XIV at Versailles.
If has two -large compartments, lilied with
pigeon-holes, in which are bundles ol' papers.
A crucifix stands between these compartments,
with thc wounds and agony of the Redeemer
finely painted and awfully real. Thc inkstand
is a very common one o. China, with a pounce
box to match; a bundle of quills lies near il,
and a piece ol'soiled rag, ou which pens have
been wiped this many a day. A lew books
of devotion are also there. They are ''The
Imltatiou," Scupoli's "Spiritual Combat,"
"Devotions ol St. Francis de Bales," a Brevia?
ry, a Bible, Rodriguez's "Spiritual Perfection,"
Siguori's "Glories of Mary," "Life of St. The?
resa," Ac. There is a pile of French journals,
tho Revue des Duex Mondes, the Civilta Catto
lico, and other Italian papers His Holness
sits in an arm chair, not meriting Hie title uf
easy, for it cruelly terminates iu the middle ol'
his back, and ls rigidly constructed without
regard lo comfort. He is attired in a simple
cassock of wldte flannel, with no insignia of
rank about it except his episcopal ring. His
head is covered with a white skull-cap. He
has been reading, and beside his open
book is a common metal snuiT box, nud?
let not my lady readers be horrified-a
common red cotton handkerchief. Hav?
ing made the usual reverence on ury
knees, he motioned me to approach. As
I recall now the effect prouueed upon
me by that interview, I do not wonder that
halt-ianalical young men, fresh from college,
should yearn to die in lils defence, as of old
the Chrisliau panted for the crowu of martyr?
dom. You feel, if a Catholic, that you are in
the presence ol' a saintly person, into which
the discords of the world do uol enter. Child?
like iu his inuocence of its vileness, and diffus?
ing an atmosohere of dignity wherever he
comes, tho veuerable Pope cannot lail to im?
press any one who enters his presence be he
Catholic or Protestant. The large, lair face is
less furrowed than that of men of half his
years, yet his pontificales has beeu most evcut
I lui. He speaks, and you at once perceive that
iuuate refinement winch makes him try to re?
move diffidence by condescension untinged by
patronage, and paternal genlleness that rc
j moves restraint. Like many another sovereign,
he takes interest in seemingly trilling objects.

WATT PLOUGH TRIUMPHANT L
This PLOUGH is now thc leading Plough of the
Middle and Cotton States.
Among the hundreds of testimonials we have
from practical Planters and Farmers, we would
call attention to the following extract from ulct
ter received from Colonel B. 0. LOCKETT, or the
large planting firm of Jordan A Lockctt, dated
Albany, Ga., November 27,1869:
"Before closing this letter, I cannot refrain from
expressing my sincere thanks to vou for thc in
veutlon or the BEST PLOUGH NOW IN USE. lt
ls the delight ot thc negro. Besides doing thc
best work that 1 have ever seen any Plough do, lt
runs with more case to the ploughman, and the
draft to the animal ls lighter than any Plough I
have ever used.
"Your Plough has already become a necessity
to me, and 1 would feel rained without lt. I am
satisfied we have saved, nnunnally, thousands of
dollars in mules alone, lt ls the Cheapest Plough
1 have ever used, of any kind or description, and
I am anxious to bring, If I can, to the notice or
my rellow-planters, this most valuable Plough."
Colonel Lockett commenced using these Ploughs
In the spring of 1868, and now has more than two
hundred and fifty (250) of them on his plantations.
Wc have testimonials as emphatic from leading
planters in North Carolina, South Carolina, Geor?
gia, Alabama and Texas, but this will sufllce for
the most incredulous.
During the present rall, this Plough has taken
Premiums nt Eight Fairs held In Virginia, North
Carolina, South Carolina and Alabama, and re?
ceived thc Highest Ratings at the Great Field Trial
In Pennsylvania, in August Inst, when more than
Fifty Different Ploughs were tested.

^YER'S CATHARTIC PILLS,
FOB AT.T, THE PURPOSES OF A LAXATIVE
Perhaps no rae medi?
cine is so universally re*
quired by everybody as
a cathartic, jor was
ever any be/OTo BO uni?
versally adopted into
usc, in every country
and among all classes,
as this mild bat efficient
purgative- PILL. The
obvious reason ls, that
it is a more reliable and
'far more effectual rem?
edy than any other.
Those who have tried it, know that It cured them:
those who have not, know that it cures their
neighbors and friends, and au know that what it
docs once lt does always-that it never fails
through any fault or neglect of Its composition.
We have thousands upon thousands of the certifi?
cates of their remarkable cures ef- the fellowing
complaints, but such cures are known in every
neighborhood, and we need not publish them.
Adapted to ali ages and conditions lil ail climates;
containing neither calomel or any ! d?biterions,
drug, they may be taken with safety by anybody.
Their sugar coating preserves them ever fresh and
makes them pleasant to take, while being purely
vegetable no harm can ariserrom their use In any
Tliey operate by their powerful Influence on the
internal viscera to purify the blood and stimulate
it Into healthy action-remove the obstructions of
the stomach, bowels, Uver, and other organs of
the body, restoring their irregular action to health,
and by correcting, wherever they exist. Such
derangements as are the first origin of diseases.
Minute directions are given In the wrapper TO
the box. for the following complaints, which these
PILLS rapidly cure: . .
For DYSPEPSIA or INDIGESTION, LISTLESSNESS]
LANASOR and Loss of APPETITE, they should be?
taken moderately to stimulate the stomach and
restore its healthy ton? and action.
For LIVER COMPLAINT and its various symp?
toms, BILIOUS HEADACHE, SICK HEADACHE, JAUN?
DICE or GREEN SICKNESS, BILIOUS COLIC and
BILIOUS FEVERS, they should be judiciously taken
for each cas?, to correct the diseased action or-*
remove the obstructions which cause lt.'
For'DYSENTERY or DIARRHOEA, bat one mild
dose ls generally required.
For RHEUMATISM, GOUT, GRAVEL, PALPITATION ?
or THE HEART, PAIN IN THE SIDE, BACK and
LUNGS, they should be continuously taken, as re?
quired, to change the diseased action of the sys?
tem. With auch, ekange those complaints dis?
For BROPSY and DROPSICAL SWELLINGS they
should be takes in large and frequent doses to
produce the effect of a drastic purge.
For SUPPRESSION a large dose should be taken
as it produces the desired effect by sympathy. '
As a DINNER PILL, tase one or two PILLS to pro?
mote digestion suyl relieve the stomach. : .
An occasional dose stimulates the stomach and
bowels Into healthv action, restores the appetite,
and in vi gorates the syBtem. Hence lt ls often ad?
vantageous where no serions derangement exists.
One wno feels tolerably well, often finds that*
dose'of these PILLS makes him feel decidedly bet?
ter, from their cleansing and renovating effect en
the digestive apparatus.
