Dn. Lyte's Hymn.?A few years ago, on
a Sunday afternoon, at the closo of au?
tumn, Rev. Dr. Lyto, an English clergy?
man, preached his farewell sermon to
his flock, whom declining health com?
pelled him to leave, lie was a victim of
consumption, and was about to pass the
winter in Italy, with tho faint hopo of
some relief from his sufferings. The last
fareweR wojb uttered to his beloved peo?
ple, and faint and weary, ho went back
to his quiet, rural parsonage. In the
evening, surrounded by his family, he
sat down and composed the following
touching and precious hymn:
Abide with ma! Fast mils tho eventide:
The darkness' deepens; Lord, with me
When other helpers fail, and comforts
Help of the helpless, O abide with me.
Swift to its closo ebbs out life's little
Earth's joys grow dim; its glories pass
Change and decay in all around I see;
0 Thou who chungest not, abide with
Not a brief glance I beg, a passing word;
But as Thou dwell'st with Thy disciples,
Familiar, condescending, patient, free?
Come, not to sojourn, but abido with me!
Come not in terrors, as the King of kincs,
But kind and good, with healing in Thy
Tears for ail woes, a heart for every plea;
Come, Friend of sinners, thus abide with
Thou on my head in early youth didst
And, though rebellious and perverse
Thou hast not left me, oft as I left Thee;
On to the close, O Lord, abide with mc!
1 need Thy presence every passing hour;
What but Thy grace can stay the
Who like Thyself my guard and stav can
Through cloud and sunshine, O abiile
I fear no foe, with Thee at hand to bless;
Ills have no weight, and tears no bitter?
Where is death's sting? where, grave,
I triumph still, if Thou abide with me!
Hold Thou Thy cross before my closing
Shine through the gloom and point mo
to the skies;
Heaven's morning breaks, and earth's
vain shadows llee;
In life and death, U Lord, abide with me!
*A Bunker Hill Representation.?
The reproduction of th"e historical scene
of the battle of Bunker Hill took place
on the fair grounds, at Allentown, Pa.,
June 17, where a four days' fair was held
by the ladies of that city*and County for
the benefit of the centennial fund. 25,000
persons and 1,200 troops took part in tho
celebration. The fight lasted about two
hours, and was admirably conducted.
Gen. Robert McAllister commanded the
American forces, who were in continental
uniform, and Col. T. H. Good the Bri?
tish, who were in full British uniform.
A Ce> tennial Suggestion. ?The Vicks
burg (Miss.) Herald would be pleased to
see Jefferson Davis selected as the orator
for the South at the Centennial Exposi?
tion at Philadelphia. It mentions it as
a suggestion of a prominent, strong Re?
publican. It may bo objected, however,
to Mr. Davis, that his political disabili?
ties have not yet been removed. There
is still time enough for this, however,
and even if he in-not a citizen in time,
he might bo allowed a hearing as one of
the distinguished foreigners who will be
present on that occasion.
Bunker Hilt,.?When tho Maryland
boys and tho South Carolina guards
fraternize to-day with their Massachu?
setts brethren, and all join in a truly
national celebration of the birth of free?
dom of America, it is n significant an?
swer to those who endeavor to keep alive
memories of bitterness and ugliness that
should have been interred long ago.
[JVeio York Herald.
"I want it nice, and strong, and snug
liko, said the widow, exhuming a fresh
Eocket-handkerchicf, and controlling
er sobs with difficulty. "Oh! that'b all
right, ma'am, that's all right," returned
the undertaker, tapping the coffin merri?
ly, "he couldn't get out of it, ma'am, if he
had a mind to."
Beauty Independent of- Youth.?t
Helen, of Troy, was over forty when she
perpetrated the most famous elopement
on record, and as the siego of Troy
lasted a decade, sho must have been
quite elderly when the ill fortuno of
Paris restored her to her husband, who
is reported to havo received her with
unquestioning lovo and gratitude.
Pericles wedded Aspasia when she was
thirty-six, and yet afterward, for thirty
years or more, held an undiminished
reputation for beauty. Cleopatra was
past thirty when Antony fell under her
spell, which never lessened until her
death, nearly ten years after; and Li via
was thirty-three when she won the heart
of Augustus, over whom sho maintained
her ascendancy to the last. The extra?
ordin?r" Diane de Poicticrs was thirty
six wh en Henry II of France (then Duke
of Orleans, and just half her age.) be?
came attached to her; and she was held
as the first lady and most beautiful
woman at court up to tho period of the
monarch's death and of the accession to
power of Catherine of Mediein. Anne
of Austria ?was thirty-eight when she
was the handsomest queen of Eu?
rope, and when Buckingham and Riche?
lieu were her jealous admirers. Ninon
de l'Enclos, the most celebrated wit and
beauty of her day, was the idol of three
generations of tho golden youth of
France, and .was seventy-two when the
I Abbe de Bern is fell in lovv with her. A
I rare combination of culture, talents and
personal attractions endowed their pos?
sessor seemingly with the gifts of etorual
youth. Bianca Capello was 'thirty-eight
when the Grand Duke Francisco, of Flo?
rence, fell captive to her charms, and
made her his wife, though lie was five
years her junior. Louis XIY'wedded
Mine, do Maintenon whon sho was
foily-threo years of aqo. Catharine II
of Russia was thirty-three when she
seized the Empire of Russia, and capti?
vated the dashing young Orion". Up to
the timo of her death (at sixty-seven!
she seems to have retained the same be?
witching powers, for tho lamentations
wero heartfelt among those who had over
known her personally. Milo. Mars, the
tragedienne, only attained the zenith of
her beauty and power between forty and
forty-five, when tho loveliness of her
hands and arms especially was cele?
brated throughout Europe. Mmc. Re
camier was thirty-eight when sho was
Without disputo declared to be the most
beautiful woman in Europe, which rank
sho held for fifteen years.
The Object of Poetry-.?Poetry re?
veals to us tho loveliness of nature, brings
back the freshnes.3 of youthful feeling,
revives tho relish of simple pleasure,
keeps unquenched the enthusiasm
I which warmed tho spring-timo of our
being, refines youthful love, strengthens
our interest in human nature by vivid
delineations of its tenderest, loftiest
feelings, and through the brightness of
I its prophetic visions helps faith to lay
hold on the future life.
