There ia no Death.
There is no death! Tho stars go down
To rise upon some fairer shore;
? And bright tn Heaven's jeweled crown j
They sninc forever moro.
Thorc is no deathl Thc dust wo tread j
Shall chango beneath the summer show?
To goldei. j am or mollow fruit,
Or rainbow tinted "flowers.
Tho granite rocks disorganize
To feed tho hungry moss ?hey hoar; .
* The forest leaves drink daily life .... i
F?om out the viewless air.
There is no death! The leaves may fall,
Tho" flowers may fade and pass away
They only wait through wintry hours, *
The coming of the May.
There is no death! An angel fenn
Walks o'er tte earth with silent tr\;ad- i
Ho bears our best loved things away,
And then we call them "dead."
Ho leaves our hearts all desolate- |
He plucks our fairest, sweetest flowers; -
Transported into bliss, they now
Adorn immortal bowers.
. Tho bird-like voice, whoso joyous tollys
Made glad this scene of sin and strife, |
Sings now in everlasting song
Amid the tree of lifo.
And where ho sees a smile too bright.
Or hearts too pure for taint and vice,
He bears it te that world of light
, To dwell in Paradise.
Born into that undying lifo,
They leave us but tote?me again;
With joy we welcome them-the same, \
Except in sin and pain.
And ever hear us, though unseen.
Thc dear immortal spirits tread;
For all the boundless universe I
r Is life-there are no dead. j

A GOOD STOBT OF BISHOP SELWYN.
i In the autumn of 1857, I spent a
few days in a cornitr-y parsonage. On
the Sunday morning, at breakfast,
the pastor's wife received a letter,
which he tittering told us must be a
tit-bit. ''Ha, Uncle,"exclaimed she,
'.here are clerical doings exactly to
your taste. " The writer, a Indy in a
distant country, narrated that there
had lately come into the next parish
a new vicar-a very fine yoting man,
who at school hud no superior either
in GiTQjk or in boxing, and who at
the university won honors far his
classics and sirves cups for his boat?
ing. He was beginning in earnest
the work of an evangelist among a
long-negleetjed, vicious, und lanital
peopje. He had a pinn anti a will;
but main- worthy folk were fearing
that his zeal was without knowledge- ?
or wisdom, at any rate. One of his j
first measures was to open a'school !
in a remote part of the parish and get
the room licensed for week-day i
preaching. But all th? drunkards 1
rose against such unheard of proceed
ings. They would run after him,
cursing and hooting, and discharging ;
vollies of sods and other missiles. 1
finding remonstrance vain, he adopt?
ed another course on the Wednesday
evening in the week before I heard
the story. Making a stand in the
middle of the road, at the entrance
of the hamlet, just as the storm arose,
and looking the savages in the face*
' he addressed them thus, in a firm,
quiet voice, which commanded their
attention: "My good fellows, I have
borne this patiently for some time, !
but now 1 must put a stop to it; and j
I'll do it in Vour own way. Choose :
vour best men, and we'll fight it out. j
if I beat, you'll givft up, you know."
They looked at him unbelievingly; j
but, throwing his coat on a.bush, he
added, "I am in earnest; send your j
Tho ruffians laid their heads to- j
getlyjr; and then a burly giant step
ped forth and stripped, and made a j
furious dash at his reverend chal?
lenger, who quietly parried tho un- j
skillful blows and played with them
for a few seconds. But, then, a fist
was planted in the. peasant's ehest,
and he lay at full length on the
ground. Quickly gathering himself
up, however, lie skulked away to his
companions. "Now send your next
best and I'll go through the lot of
you." Again their heads drew to?
gether, and another threw down his
jacket; going to work, however, with
more cautious energy. But at once
a stomacher stretched him on the
road. "Your next." Once more a
conglomerate of dense pates was
formed. "Bill, thee teck him." Bill
eyed the'hero askance and shook his
head-"Thee, Jim; teek th' parson;"
a shake more di eided, and a stiff
"Say, nay; I'se see thee hiing fust."
And now the first one who was van?
quished, stood forward, and, like a
brave man, called out, "I say, par?
son, ye're a rare young un, yo ar.
I'se tell fi tee what: we are going to
hear you preych." And they ill fol?
lowed him along tho little street, said
thu writer, ami beard the Word quiet?

j esiorl, and the children looked awe
''stricken,' when they met or passed
i him; tliat the church and schools
j were filled; that the beeivhonses were
j nearly all shut up; and that a great
! moral and religious reformation was
I in progress. ' That gentleman hi?.
! previ lusly been the instrument of a
I like change in an equally demoralised
parish. I may add, that a few years
back he was deemed the fittest cler?
gyman in the church to go out as
bishop to a sc en i of great personal
danger in a benth *n country.
[Cor. Manchester Examiner.
PRESIDENT LINCOLN'S FIRST DOL?
LAR.-One evening in the Executive
Chamber, there were present ?* nu au?
ber of gentlemen, among them Mr.
Seward. A point in thc conversation <
; suggesting the thought, Mr. Lincoln
said, "Seward, you never liearci, did
you, bow I earned my first dollar?"
''No," said Mr. Seward. 'Well,"
replied be, ' 'I was about eighteen
1 years of age. I belonged, yon know,
to what they call down South the |
^'scrubs'-people who do not own land j
I and slaves are nobody there. "?But we j
I had succeeded in raising, chiefly by
I my labor, sufficient produce, as I
thought, to justify me in taking it
down the river to self. After much
persuasion, I got the.consent*bf my
mother to go, and constructed a little,
flat boat, large enough to take a bar?
rel or two of things that we gathered
with myself and little bundle, dow::"
to New Orleans. A steamer was com?
ing down the river. We have, you !
i know, no wharves along the Western
streams, and the custom was4 if pas?
sengers were at any of the landings, j
for them to go out in a boat, the
steamer stopping and taking them on
board. I was contemplating my new
fl.'it boat, and wondering whether I
could make it stronger or improve it
in any particular, when two men j
came down to the shore in carriages,
with trunks, and looking at the dif?
ferent boats, singled out mine, and
asked, 'Who owns this?' I answered,
somewhat modestly, 'I do.' 'Will
you,' said one of them, 'take us and I
oar trunks out to th fe:eamer?' 'Cer- !
tfcinlv,' said I. I was very glad to
have an opportunity of earning some?
thing. I supposed that each one,
would give me two or three bits. The
trunks woi-e put on my flat boat, the
passengers seated themselves on the '
trunks, and I sculled them ont to the j
stearn boat. They got on board, ami !
I lift?a up the?l?<x?vy rronusand put I
them on deck. Thc steamer was j
about to put ou steam again, when I |
called out that they had forgotten to I
pay me. Each of them took from his
pocket a silver half dollar .*nud threw?
it on the. floor of my boat. I could
scarcely behove mv eyes as I picked :
up4he money. Gentlemen, you may j
think it a very tittle thing, and in
these days it seems to mc like a trifle;
but it was a most important incident
in my lii'e. I could scarcely credit j
that I, a poor boy, had earned a dob
lar in less than a day-that by honest
work I bad earned a dollar. The i
world se?med wider and fairer before
me. I was a more hopeful and c mfi
rient being froji that time."
[Springfield Union. I
Some years ago, there was a notary j
public in Washington, an old and
highly respected gentleman, who had
held his office through ' all the politi?
cal twistings and turnings of our capi?
tal for nearly twenty years. A young
friend was in his office one day, and
while sitting hy the t;ibl ! picked up a
small old leather covered book, which,
upon being opened, proved to be
Thaddeus of Warsaw. He cautiously
' remarked to Mr. Smith, the notary:
"I see you have a copy of Thaddens
of Warsaw here."
"Thaddeus of Warsaw!" was the
reply. "What do yow mean?" .
"Why, this a copy of it."
"Thaddeus of Warsaw!" exclaimed
the old gentleman. He snatched the
"nook, gave one glance at it, and cried
out, "For twenty years 1 have been
swearing people on that book, thiuk
it was the Bible. All those oaths
ain't worth the paper they are writ?
