That gap that struck oar school boy trail,
The crooked path across the lot.
It left the road by school and church,
A penciled shadow, nothing more,
That parted from the silver birch.
And ended at the (arm house door.
No line or compos* traced its phut
With frequent bends to left or right,J
In aimless, wayward curves it ran,
But always kept the door in sight.
The gab'ed porch, with woodbine green.—
The broken mill stone at the sill—
Tho' manj a rood might stretch between,
The truant child could see them still.
No rocks across the pathway lie
No fallen trunk is o'er it thrown—
And yet it winds, we know not why.
And turns, as if for tree or stone.
Perhsps some lover trod the way.
With skakmg knees and leaping heart,
And so it often runs a-tray
With sinsous sweep or sudden start,
Or one, perchance, with clouded brain,
From some unholy banquet reeled—
And since, our devious steps maintain
His track across the trodden field.
Nay, deem not thus—no earth-born will
Could ever trace a faultless line
Our truant steps are human still—
To walk unswerving were divine!
Truants from love, we dream of wrath.
Oh, rather let us trust the more!
Through all the wanderings of the path,
We still can see our Father's door.

The present sge is marked with
strong, and auspicious peculiarities.
One of them is, increasing numbers
of people are disposed to inquire, with
regard to every moral principle and
practice "is it right It is less sat
isfactory now than in former times,
that a thing is pleasant, merely that
it is popular, has been practiced along
time, by respectable men, or even by
good men the question is and with
numbers increasing continually, "Is it
Another auspicious indication of the
present time, is the standard of right
and wrong with increasing numbers is
the bible. This has, by good men,
long been acknowledged, in theory, as
the only perfect moral standard. But
they are now, more than ever before,
applying it to practice. Not only
they laboring with more vigor to send
it to all nations and convey a know
ledge of its contents to all hearts
but they are appealing to it, as the cri
terion of thought aud action and
endeavoring with new diligence to
bring every soul under its controling
power. It is not decisive as it once
was, that a thing is legal, according
to the human statute or honorable in
human society but the question is,
does it accord with the word of God,
as revealed in the bible? To the
and the testimony if they speak not
according to this word, increasing
numbers conclude there is no truth in
Auother momentous indication
the present time, aud one which takes
hold, with a mighty grasp on the des
tinies of man, is, the number is increas
ing who feel conscience bound, daily
to listen to the bible, as the voice of
God speaking to them and with fer
vent supplication for the teachings of
his spirit, that they may understand
his will, and who when they dp under
stand it, are not ashamed to, do it.
The number is rapidly increasing,
who, when they learn, that the bible
condemns a practice will renounce it,
and who when they learn that it re
quires an action, will attempt with the
spirit which the bible inculcates, to
perform it, whether other men do
this or not and who will leave the
consequences to the divine disposal,
Man has a deeper and more pervad
ing conviction than ever before of per
sonal responsibility, in all situations,
tor the character and tendency of his
actions to the retributions of eternity,
The consequence is, it is becoming
more and more common, if a man wish
es to have good done, to do it himself
if a man wishes to have a little good
done, to do that, and if he wishes to
have a great good done, to do that, and
to do it novo. There is less disposition
than formerly, to depend on other peo
ple, nnd to nut off present dnty to
ture time. Men are not so much afraid
as they once were or ashamed, if need
ful, to go in the path of duty alone,
and whether others do it or not, athand
tempt to do good, as they have oppor
tunity, to all men. The feeblest and
most obscure do not despair of exert
ing influence that shall be felt by all
people, to all ages. A striking devel
opment of these principles has been
made in the Temperance Reformation.
A vicious practice had long received
the sanction of legislation, and theform
support of the example of nearly the
whole Christian world. But it was
followed, as its natural and necessary
results, by loss of property, character,
life, aud soul to an extent which must
fill every person, who comprehends it,
with amazement. And the question
was started, no doubt, by the Spirit of
God, "Is it right" to continue a prac
tice which produces such results and
which, if continued, will perpetuate
and increase them to all future ages?
The bible was examined, and provi
dences observed Divine teaching was
and the conviction was fasten
on the mind, that the practice was
not right, and that to prevent the evils
which it produced, men must cease to
perpetuate the cause. And for the
of making knowu to our coun
trymen especially, the reasons why
they should do this, Temperance So
cieties have been formed, whose ob
ject is, by diffusion of information and
the exertion of kind moral influence,
to attempt with, the divine blearing,
to procure suoh a change of sentiment
practice with regard to intoxicat
ing drinks, that intemperance shall
cease, and temperance with all its at
tendant benefits to the body and the
soul shall universally prevail.

About the latter end of Queen
Anne's wars,. Captain John Beams,
commander of the York Merchant, ar
rived at Barbadoes from England

sailors who had been employed in
that dirty work ventured into the
sea to wash themselves there they

of their danger, upon which they swam

the severed trunk of his friend, it

rounds of the battle were detailed to

thing my Portuguese friends seemed

Mr. Buckingham, in his amusing
gossipping Life, writes:—"A few days
after this, an oppoturnity presented it
self of our seeing the moat popular
prize fighter of the day—young Gully,
who had just beaten the champion of
England, Gregson, in a terribly bloody
encounter, and was to show himself at
his own house to his admirers, as soon
as the cuts and bruises he had receiv
ed in the contest were sufficiently heal

and bosom that was anything but ap

ever, that passed from room, to room
in the general promenade, there was
one that attracted universal attention.
It was formed of three persons—the
central one, a fine, manly, athletic,
yet well formed aud graceful figure,
and resting on either arm, two of thewine
loveliest women of all the assembled
multitude, about eighteen and twenty
years of age, dressed in plain, green
velvet, without a single ornament or
jewel of any kind, but such exquisite
figures, beautiful features, blooming
complexions, bright eyes, and rich and
abundant hair, as might make either
of them a worthy representative of the
Venus of Cnidns,of Medici? or Cano
va. They were so little known that
the question was perpetually be
being whispered around, 'But who are
they?—who can they be?' They re
received much attention from Earl
Fitzwilliam, and many of the distin
guished guests, and this only height
ened the curiosity to know from whence
they came, as they were evidently, un
known to the country gentry.'* At

Mr. Gully, the ci-devant prize fighter,
and his two daughters! He was then
for Pontefract, had acquired
large fortune, and most honorably
it was believed, on the turf, being an
an excellent judge of horses—had pur
chased a large estate, and was living
in a style of great elegance, at Hare
park, near Pontefract, respected by
all his neighbors."
MENTAL LABOR.—The injurious ef
of mental labor are in a great
measure owing to the extensive forcing
in early youth to sudden or misdirected
study to the co-operation of depressing
emotions or passions to the neglect of
the ordinary rules of hygiene to the
neglect of the hints of the body or to
^.the presence of the seeds of disease,
The man of healthy phlegmatic or ehol
temperment is less likely to be in-and

latter, with allowance for the original
constitution may be capable of vast ef

NAVAX RKSOCBCKS OF ENGLAND.—
The Paris I?Elate has the following
remarks upen the debate in the English
House of Commons on the navy esti
first day of his exhibition. In him we
saw a tall, handsome young man, of he laughs at the public when he pre
ahout twenty one yean, of age, his
head fearfully battered, many cuts in
his face, andboth eyes recovering from
an intense blackness, but full of gaiety
and spirit* at his late triumph he wore
a little white apron before him after
the manner of landlords, and served
his visitors with whatever drink they
required while his young wife, an
The great fact to be remarked is the
immensity of means commanded by the
English navy. To add in a single year
26 large vessels, of which 15 are line
of battle ships, is an extraordinary
ertion, Which England is alone capable
of making, and which could not be ex
ecuted by the dock yards of all the
other powers ofthe old and new world,
were they eventocombine their efforts.
The French steam fleet comprises
splendid vessels, that can bear advan

admirality spoke perhaps with greater
than he suspected when he ad-in
mitted that fact in full Parliament but
tends that the number of these vessels

says: "I believe that in the education
of youth, it is of immense importance
