To Miine WA Wtft.
BT THOMAS SOARS. .
Time only makes her love more dear,
Her smiles of kindness more express,
Her age with finer thoughts mo cneer,
When sorrows my"poor heart oppres?.
Time tells upon heir rosy face,
Its bloom but plays another part,
With deeper glow and richsr grace,
Goes now to warm her older heart.
Sweetheart still e'er until I die,
Mine old wife, one year younger than I.
Time only sweetens to mine ear,
For counsel glean'd from pious love,
Her voice still warbles soft and clear
Of song, and wit, and jewell'd store.
Time but more sweetly pales her eye,
To charm my house with young orbs
bright
Kine loved ones, all eal th's dearest prize,
Bear her bine eyes, with sparkling light,
Sweetheart still e'er until I die,
Mine old wife, one year younger than I.
Time deeper sets her virtues rare,
Like costly gems when richly wrought,
My home the idol of her care,
Store for old her constant thought.
Time warns me of a last "good bve,"
On streams of life flow pure and clear,
To cheer "on high" beyond the sky,
Fd love h?r there as well as befe.
Sweetheart still e'er beyond the sky,
Mine old wife, one year younger than I.
JUMWCS ny Religion.
Near London there dwelt an old
couple. In early life they had been
poor, but tbe husband became a
Christian, and God blessed their in?
dustry, and they were liviiig in a com?
fortable retirement, when one day a
stranger called on them to ask their
subscription to a ^charity. The old
lady had less religion than her hus?
band, and still hankered after the
Sabbath huskings and easy shillings
which Thomas had forfeited from re?
gard to the law of God. So when
the visitor asked their contributions,
she interposed, and said :
. ' Why, sir, wc have lost a deal by
religion since wo first began ; my
husband known that vciy well. Have
we not, Thomas ?"
After a solemn pause, Thomas an?
swered : ' ' Yes, Mary, we have, lie
fore I got religion, Mary, I had an
old slouched hat, a tattered coat, and
mended shoes and stockings; but I
have lost them long ago. And, Mary,
you know that, poor as I was, I had
a habit of getting drunk and quarrel?
ing with you, and that you know I
have lost. And then, I had a hard?
ened conscience and wicked heart,
and ten thousand guilty fears ; but
all arc lo:::, completely lost, and like
a mill-stone cast into thc deepest sea.
And, Mary, you have been a loser,
too, though not so great a loser as
myself. Before wc got religion, Mary,
you had a washing tray, in which you
washed for hire ; but since then you
have lost your washing tray. And
you had a gown and bonnet much the
worse for wear ; but you have lost
them long ago. And you had many
an aching heart concerning me at
times ; but these you happily have
lost. And I could even wish that you
had lost as much as I have lost ; for
what we lose for religion will be an
everlasting gain."

After twenty-four hours of trial, it was
found among the debris, and on opening !
it this day has yielded up tts contents in |
very good order-books, papers, policies of j
