For Thy Sake.
O Lord! our lives ore blank with constant
Our feet are sore with pain;
Our hearts are weary with fast coming
We struggle, nor attain.
We watch for coming sails that never
Tbe still unyielding blue;
We look for light whose dawn shall
The mist-enshrouded view.
The grasp is loosened that we hold so
The steps ours timid with fleet;
On marble stones our household names
Graves thicken round our feet.
The white-walled city grows more dim
The eternal shore recedes,
The upward path we thought to climb
Is blind with unchecked weeds.
As heart and strength grow less, tho way
grows rougher, .....
Frail staveB we leaned on break;
The glow of living fades?we bear?we
Bat it its "for Thy sake!"
Is this the cross that by its fearful bearing
Makes worthy, Lord of Thee?
That lifts our weak endurance up to
The mystic agony?
There is a resignation worse than mur?
An acquiescence vain;
A giving up that roots self-will tho firmer,
And silence may complain.
O, give us, Lord, that living love un?
That makes the heaviest cross
Thon layest on us be by us self-taken,
Makes sacrifice of loss.
The diary of the proceedings of the
Beecher jurors after being lockod' up,
whioh Mr. Juryman Hull says ho has
nearly completed, ought to sell like hot
cakes as soon as it is given to the world.
It is full of personal allusions, many of
them humorous, and gives, among other
things, a low of the discomforts expe?
rienced by twelve men locked np toge?
ther. Smoking, eating, drinking, talk?
ing, sleeping, telling stories and playing
a game called the "jury game, sorved
to pass the time away pleasantly. Flate
is said to have "jumped on the tables,
flapped his arms and crowed like a
rooster." Thyer |sang comio songs and
danced jigs, and was the life of the whole
assemblage. In fact, Thyer seems to
have been the jolliest of the twelve,
always in a good humor and full of fun.
There were walking matches and run?
ning matches around the room, in which
Mr. Jeffrey was the most athletic com?
petitor. The only question in dispute
throughout the eight days of the session
was the veracity of the witnesses, and
that was a matter in which individual
opinion could alone have weight, and
tho difference of opinion seemed to bo
irreconcilable. Tho sessions for argu?
ment were not hold at any regular hours,
but frequently during the day and often
during tho night. One night, Mr. Hull
thinks that ot least every hour a ballot
was taken. Tho jurors slept as well as
they could in chairs, on the table and
under tho desks. Ono or two had mat?
tresses sent them by their families.
Everything during tho eight days was
entirely harmonious, and a number of
the jurymen havo formed personal
friendships which will bo permanent.
^Bnda-Pestb is unfortunate. The storm
ol Sunday was n repetition of that of
June 26. Built partly on a mountain
side, it is exposed to every tempest. It
has suffered in the past from war, pesti?
lence and inundation. Between the
TurkB, tbe cholera, civil war and convul?
sions of nature, the history of tho city is
a troublous one.
