Th? Christian Crown.
BX JOHN SAVAGE.
Ten centuries and ono had trod
Jerusalem, since win n.
:n mortal form, the Sou of God,
Died for the sous of men.
And they who in tho martyr '". . nd
Their Saviour, wailed and w< pt.
"hat gorgeous horrors should abound.
Where Christ the blessed slept.
From clamorous towns and forests'hush,
As cascades from tho gloom
Of Caves, Crusaders Eastward rush,
To win the holy tomi?.
Their corselets steel and silver bricht,
"Neath swaying plumes displayed,
New dance, like streams, in hues of light
Now loiter on in shade.
Their crosses glow in cv? ry form,
Inspiring vale and mar..
As through the veius of earth they swarm,
Like blood hack to the heart.
Fis mid-day of mid-summer's bent:
Faith crowns the live and dead;
Jerusalem is at their feet.
Brave Godfrey at their head.
oithin the walls, the ramparts ring
As proudly they proclaim,
C?reat Godfrey dc Bouilon king!
Aking in more than name.
The ruby-budding crown to bind
About his head they stood;
Another crown is in bis mind;
For rubies, beads of blood.
. No, no'."' and hack the bauble thugs,
"No gold this brow adorns.
Where w illed He, Christ, thc Kingof Kings,
To wear a crown of thorns."
Let not ibo glorious truth depart
Brave Godfrey handed down;
A iiiuK whose crown is in his heart
Need wear no other crown.
ADVANTAGES OF LATIN.- A very
good member of the Genoral Assem?
bly, of Rhode Island, once moved lo
translate all the Latin phrases in the
statute so that tho common people
could understand them. The exqui?
site folly of such a measure was by no
means obvious to tho great body of
the Assembly. It was quite as likely
io pass ns not. A good solid argu?
ment against it would probably have
carried it through. The late Mr.
Updike took thc ground that ii was
no advantage to have the people
understand tho laws. They were not
afraid of anything which they under?
stood. I t was these Latin words that
they tire afraid of.
Mr. Speaker, there was a mun in
.South Kingstown, about twenty
years ago, a perfect nuisance, and
nobody knew how to get rid of him.
Une day, he was hoeing corn and he
saw tho Sheriff coming with a pa?
per, and he asked what it was. Now
if he had told him it was a writ,
what would he have cared? But
iie told him it was a capias ad satis?
faciera tum, and thc man dropped his
hoe and run. and has not been heard
of since. Nor has thc proposition

other day that 1 know belongs to
