Tho river flowed with the light on its
breast, ? .
And the waves wont eddying by,
And tho round, red sun went down in ihe
When my love1? loving lips to my lips were
Under thc evening sky
Now weeping alene Dy che river Istray,
For my love has Ki me this many a
Left me to droop and die.
As the river flowed then, the river flows
In ripple, and form, and spray,
On bv the church, and roundbv thc hill,
And under the sluice by the old burnt mill,
And out to tho fading day;
But I love it no more, for delight grows
When the song is sung and tho tale is
Aud the heart is given away."
Oh, rive r, run far! Oh, river, run fast!
Oh, weeds, float out to the sea!
For thc sim has gone down on my beauti?
And the hopes that like bread on the waters
Have drifted away like thee!
So the dream it is fled, and the day it
And my lips will murmur the name of
Who will never come back to mc.
Ohl let them rest, tho buried griefs;
Why should we drag them to the day?
They "liv d their hour of storm and shower;
They lived and died anti passed a n ay.
Oh! let them rest-their graves are green;
New life shall risc above thc mould;
The dews shall weep, the blossoms poop,
The flowers of sympathy unfold.
So, on the solitary moor,
The soldiers' graves arc bright with
Tho wild thyme blooms, and sweet per?
Attract the roamers of the bowers.
There stays the bee to gather sweets,
And give his booming trumpet rest;
There waves the heath its purple wreath,
And there tho linnet builds her nest.
So let them rest-the buried griefs
Thc place is holy where they lie;
On life s cold waste their graves are placed,
The flowers look upward to the sky.

No clergyman in the Methodist
Church was better kne .'-n than Wil?
liam Barnes. For sixty years a mem?
ber of its itinerant ministry, com?
mencing with the rifle, axe, and
saddle-bag days of Asbury and Scott,
the ttivine slowly increased in reputa?
tion as the vanities of the world and
the follies of the flesh were engrafted
on the beloved church of his adop?
tion and choice. He was a bitter
opponent of fashionable frivolity.
The plainness of his fore-fathers was
the apple of his eye. The simplicity
of apostolic days was the standard of
his life, and the doctrines he loved
were the doctrines he preached.
John the Baptist waa not plainer in
attire, in life and manner than Mr.
Barnes, and the ardency of his oppo- i
sitiou to gayety and extravagance !
made him famous throughout the !
bounds of the Philadelphia Confer- j
ence. As a divine he was eloquent. '?
?arncjt^md sincere. His sermon s
possessed the power of the old fathers
of Methodism, when Wesley and
Whitfield invoked the mercies of Pro?
vidence ou the collieries of England
and the pioneer settlements of Araeri- 1
ca. Eccentric and singular in his i
boyhood, his individuality increased
in his later years until the peculiar
traits of Mr. Barnos' character made
him familiar ia e?ery Methodist par
ish in the State. For twenty years I
his name has been a household word
in Methodist families in the Philadel- j
On Friday night, 29th, the old divine
died from one of the most singular
circumstances in clerical history. An j
old law of Pennsylvania, enacted in |
1701, declares that bans of marriage ?
miist be published in public meetings
and posted on the meeting-house one
month before the ceremony can be
legally performed. For years the j
statute has been null. It filled a j
place in the records of commonwealth .
law, but its terms were never heeded, j
Mr. Barnes joined in lawful holy
?wedlock two lovers, who blushingly j
came to his house and asked tho1
sacred fulfillment of their hearts' de-1
sires. The bride was the daughter of
aresident of Philadelphia. He object-1
eel strenuously to the union, but his
anger toward the children was imp?
tent. They were united in mcfriage,
and hy could not divide them. His
daughter was of full age, but her
husband was not twenty-one. Power
i-ss t^g?r^ te them, the father pre
"dJBB^ 1hu ii i'1 clergyman for
*~ ' violation of the antiquated Act of
1701. The fossil of a father claimed
- the vengeance of\ the fossil of the
law. Mr. Barnes wvs brought before
the District Court, rtth Judge Shars
wood on the bench, m
Tlie defendant's co.^fcsel contended
that proof of the non-publication of
the bans should be made ; that the
plaintiff's witnesses had not gone to
the court house or meeting house
doors to examine ; and, inasmuch as
this waa a final action, the proof
should be positive as to the non-per?
formance of the requirements of the
act. He said that tho enforcement of
the act would lead to many divorces,
to the breaking of many family ties ;
and that the father (the plaintiff) had
done wrong in casting a doubt upon
the legality of the marriage of his
daughter, united in holy matrimony
by a power recognized by ecclesiastical
law as well as custom.
The plaintiff's counsel urged the
enforcement of the penalty. Judge
Sharswood instructed the jury that
the law was still in force; that no one
could join in marriage ii minor with?
out consent of the parents and publi
cation of the bans; and he instructed
th? jury that \f they found such con?
sent had not been obtained and such
publication made, the plaintiff was
entitled to recover. Th? jury could
not agree. On t he opening y of the
Court ou Saturday morning, the
melancholy fact was announced by
the Judge, in discharging the jury,
that Mr. Barnes had die'd a few hours
after leaving the court house. The
cause of his death was the excitement
consequent jm the trial of the case.
With the penalty of a broken law
pending, death entered n stronger
plea, and the venerable divine was
called to the bar of God, who makes
the cause of His servants His own.
The tears and prayers of the whole
Methodist Church followed the aged
veteran of the cross to his eternal
A "WONDERFUL. COMET.-There is
ono of these eccentric and mysterious
members of the solar system that re?
quires five 'hundred and seventy-two
years in which to make its revolution
in its very eliptical orbit around the
sun. Thc first account of it3 appear?
ance on record is 1,767 years before
Christ, wheu some took it to be the
planet Venus, changing its appear?
ance und course. It was seen the
second time 1,193 years before Christ,
and again 1,150 years later. This last
was 43 B. C., the year after Julius
Caesar was killed in thc Roman Sen?
ate. It was certainly seen A. D. 530,
the fifth year of the Roman Emperor
The account is, that a remarkable
comet was seen twenty clays in the
mouth of September, and that for
some time after the suu appeared
pale. It was due again in A. I). 1105,
and early in the following year it was
seen. Its last appearance was in 1GS0.
Sir Isaac Newton and others give tin
interesting account of its velocity,
heat, Ac. This comet has been gone
one hundred and eighty-five years,
and will require about one hundred
and two years before it reaches the
farthest part of its orbit, and its great?
est distance from the sun. It will be
due here again in the year 2256.
This wonderful comet, as we have
said, was seen 1,767 years B. C., and
it must have appeared five hundred
and seventy-five years before that,
which would have been 2,340 B. C.,
or six years after the flood in the days
of Noah. Its previous visit to our
system must have been 2,917 B. C.,
and before that, according to our
chronology, was the Creation. This
lacks sixty-two years of th?5 time re?
quisite for the comet to make a com?
plete revolution-so that at the Crea?
tion it miglit have been placed at a
distance from the sun equal to what
it could have moved in sixty-three
years. It is probably now making
the eleventh revolution in its orbit.
How great nnd marvelous are the
works of the Almighty!
CAUSES OF STTJMME? ^EATH.-Ver^
few of the sudden n" -lbs which art
said to arise from dis ?uses of the hear
do really arise from that cause. T<
ascertain the i*eal origin of suddei
deaths, an experiment has been trie<
in Europe and reported to a scientific
congress held at Strasbourg. Sixty
six cases of sudden death were madi
the subject of a thorough post morte):
examination; in these cases only tw<
were found who had died from dis
eases of the heart. Nine out of sixtj'
six had died from apoplexy, whil
there were forty-six cases of conges
tion of the lungs-that is, the lung
were so full of blood they could no
work, there not being room enougl
for a sufficient quantity of air to ente
to support life. The causes that pro
duce congestion of the lungs are: coli
feet, tight clothing, costive bowels
sitting still until chilled niter bein
warmed wita labor or a rapid walk
going too suddenly from a close
heated room into the cold air, espt
cially after speaking, and suddc:
depressing news operating on th
blood. These causes of sudden deaf
being known, an avoidance of ther
may serve to lengthen many valuabl
lives, which would otherwise be los
under the verdict of heart complaint
That diseases is supposed to be ir
evitable and incurable; hence man
may not take the pains they would t
avoid sudden deatli if they knew i
lay iu their power.
