Ah, how the silent memories of years
Are stirring in my spirit. I have been
A lono and joyless wandorer. I have roamed
Abroad through other climes.where tropic flowers
Were offering op their incense, and the stars
Swimming like living creatures; I have stayed
Where tho soft skies of Italy were Lung
In beautiful transparency above,
And glory floating like a lovely dream
O'er tho rich landscape; yet dear fancy still,
'Mid all the ruder glow of brighter realms,
Oft turned to picture the remembered home,
That blest its earliest day-dreams. Must I 'go
Forth in tho world again 1 I've proved its joys,
Till joy was turned to bitterness I've felt
Its sorrows till I thought my heart would burst
With the fierce rush of tears I The sorrowing babe
Clings to its mother's breast. The bleeding dove
Flics to her native vale, and nestles there
To die amid tho quiet grove, where first
SliO tried her tender pinion. I could love
Thus to repose amid these peaceful scenes
To memory dear. Oh it were passing sweet
To rest forever on this lovely spot,
Where passed my days of innocence to dream
Of the pure stream of infant happiness
Sunk in life's wild and burning sands to dwell
On visions faded, till my broken heart
Should cease to throb to purify my soul
With high and holy musings and to lift
Its aspirations to the central home
Of love and peace and holiness in heaven

GRAND HAVEN CORRESPONDENCE.
Grand Haven, Jan. 3, 1859.
My last communication had reference
to the Press of Ottawa County. Cur
tain of our brethren seem to take a lit
tie exception to some facts therein stated,
bearing upon their personal reputation as
chroniclers of passing eveuts, and tho
I position by them occupied in community ;
ut our reputation as a faithful historian,
demanded of us a true and impartial
sketch of our subject, and all disinterest
ed parties affirm that it was given.
W e now propose to give briefly, the
present condition of tho Church in old
Ottawa. But before entering upon this
subject in detail, permit us to premise a
a little. It was Jong a problem, dillicult
indeed of solution to visitors and men of
business visiting tho different portions of
our county, whether M pure religion and
undeRled' had even a semblence of exist
ence within our borders; and soma even
may have been so seriously impressed
with the hgyptian-like darkness that ev
erywhere prevailed, that they did implor
ingly solicit the Executive Hoard of tho
Homo Missionary Society to send, with
out delay, an illuminating spirit to dispel
tho thick darkness that brooded over us,
and usher in if possible, a gleam of mor
al and religious light. But, in tho mean '
time, a sort of pine wood religion had,
for long years, nay, we might afhrm, from
tho first scttlemout of our county, exist-cd--consisting
in banking during the week
as largo a number of good merchantable
pino logs as possible, and, on Sunday,
engHging in the usual recreation of a hoi
iday, to wit: hunting, fishing, wrestling,
pitching the quoit, fcc, and in tho sum
mer, perhaps the ndditional pastimo of
rafting to market tho logs put in readiness
during the week.
But marked exceptions to this kind
of mammon, pine-log worship, here and
there prevailed, though at intervals that
scarce presented a redeeming feature, ex
cept in our villngos and the moro thickly
settled communities, where occasionally
dwelt a household where the suppliant
knee was, morn and eve, bent to the Great
Creator in humble prayer and praise.
In all our wide and extended territory,
North, South, East and West, not a sin
gle Church cdifico existed, to tho knowl
edge of the writer, with the exception of
two orccted at tho village of Laniont,
nnd those built by our much esteemed and
pious adopted citizens, the Hollanders;
who, in all their wanderings from tho
44 Fader Land," never forgot tho religion
of their ancestors, but who, when they
pitch their tents in the homo sought for
an adoption, fail not, among their hist
acts, to erect a tabernacle to tho Most
High to the shame and rebuke of thoso
enjoying, to n far greater degree, the
blessings of home, liberty, and the pat
ronage of a government whoso fostering
care and protection of her free and noblo
institutions of learning and religion, have
given to our country a name far more ex
cellent among the nations than is possess
ed bv any other politcial power 44 'neath
the blue vault of heaven."
Stiangely, indeed, did tho tall smoke
pipes of our mammoth steam mills, erect
ed for the manufacture of those same
pine logs to which reference is had above,
contrast with tho humblo spire of tho
churches of our Lamont citizens, and of
this God-saving people who discard tho
pine log fealty, so almost universally
prevalent around them.
In certain localities, you might take a
favorable position for observation, and
in tho wido extended range of your
vision, from half a dozen tovhalf a score
of those lumber manufactories reared from
their sooty, ash-laden roofs, the tall pipe
that sent far into the clouds, in thick vol
umes, the exhausting steam that drives
the mighty machinery that dissects the
ponderous pine logs, and fits it to assume
its destined position in the beautiful man
sion about to be erected for tho abode of
wealth and splendor, but not a plank or
clapboard to bo usod in perfecting and
beautifrinff an edifice, from whose talL
Now England-like spire, the sweet tones
of tho Sabbath bell might direct the
master and his workmen, tho stranger
and sojourner, each returning Sabbath,
to tho place, where, in thanksgiving and
praise, their gratitude might ascend to
God, tho author of all their prosperity
and happiness. Bjit, happily for tho
moral and religious reputation and well
being of our citizens, a marked chango
for the better has taken place in our midst
within the la&t throe years, of which I
propose to particuralize in my next
From Harper's Magaiine for December.
OUR NEW MINISTER'S WIFE.
There had .been a pastoral change in
our congregation. The oeople, after ten
years' trial of good old Mr. Wharton, and
his amiable and compliant wife, came lo
tho conclusion that a different kind of a
preacher, with a different kind of a wife,
would vastly improve their spiritual con
dition. There was a lack of strength
about Mr. Whartou (so it was alleged),
and certain prominent ladies ot the
church had wished (aloud) so oftei that
Mrs. Wharton were less old-fa&hioned in
her ways, that change 60oner or later,
had come to be a settled thing in tho
minds of a majority. It was 6imply a
question of time; and time settled tho
question. Tho change was made. Old
Mr. Wharton and his wifo retired, nnd
Rev. Mr. Newton and his wifo took their
places in the pastorate of tho congrega
tion I say "Mr. Newton and hi3 wife,"
for our people thiuk, or used to think,
that when they " hired a minister," they
hired his wife alvo, and regarded her du
ties among them in quite a high a light
as they did tho duties of her husband.
I happened to bo away from tho vil
lage at tho time this chango was made,
and did not return until after Mr. New
ton and his wifo had been doing duty for
something over thrco months.
44 How do you hko your new minister i
was among the first of inquiries.
44 He's a charming preacher," was tho
reply I received on every hand. Yet I
saw, by tho manuer of my friends, that
some drawback existed.
44 How do you liko his wifo?"
Ahl tho mystery was solved. Mr.
Newton was well enough. But his wile!
44 What kind of a woman is she I" I
44 Don't know. Can't raako her out,"
was tho vague answer I received.
44 Is she anything like Mrs. Wharton !"
44 Oh dear, no ! f only wish she was.
Why sho doesn't take a particle of inter
est m the church' Hasn't been to ono
of tho monthly concerts for prayer; nor
to tho woekly sowing-circle; nor even to
the Sabbath school. We calculated en
tirely on her taking the senior girl's class,
which Mrs. Wharton taught for so many
years; and a committee of ladies waited
on her with an invitation to do so; but
she actually declined, saying that she had
neither taste nor aptitudo for teaching !
Now, what do you think of that for a
minister's wife ! Did you ever hear the
beat of it!"
I saw, at a glance, that there wn.s
trouble ahead ; for Miss Phoebe Lane, who
made me this communication, was an
active 44 circulating medium" in tho con
gregation. She know everybody s bu
siness, talked to everybody, nnd acted as
opinion-maker to a large majority of la
dies who had loo much to do in their own
families lo have time for independent
thiuking in church matters.
I must confess that I felt a sort of
liking for Mrs. Newton, on this represen
tation of Miss Lane. Mrs. Wharton and
had been such a pliant subject in the
hands of my spiuster friend, nnd a few
like her, that an involuntary respect was
created fur a minister's wifo who, in com
ing among us, 'suld from the beginning
show that she had an individuality of her
own, and meant to hold on by it.
Two or throe days' intcrcourso with
the members of tho congregation satisfi
ed me that Mrs. Newton would not do
for the church of St. Charity. When
and whore that lady was canuonizod I
have never learned. I havo my suspi
cions that Miss Pbcebe Lane, who re-
christened the parish on tho occasion of
the building of our new church, was not
particularly well read in tho saintish cal
ender. But let that pass. Ours was the
church of St Charity. Mr. Newton was
such a delightful man 1 Such a preacher !
So active in all tho interests of the soci
ety I So pious! So humble-minded !
But his wifo! ' No woman could be less
suited to her condition. It was even
doubtod whether sho was a professor !
Phoebe Lane was positive about it; and
averred that sho didn't believe there was
a spark of piety in her soul How a man
like Mr. Newton could ever have mated
himself with such a wife was regarded
by Miss Lane as one 0f the inexplicable
mysteries. M A man liko Mr. Newton,
who might have had his cboico among
womenF . , .
I went lot church with no ordinary fool
ing of interest on the Sabbath following
mr return. Whether mv loading impul
ses were of earth, earthy, or of heavco,
heavenly, I will not stop to question.
Five minutes before tho timo of service
to begin, n lady just above tho medium
height beautifully formod, and with a
step of blended grace and dignity, passed
along tho aisle, lending a child by tho
hand, and took a sent in tho minister's
pew. Although not in any senso gaily
dressed, there wa3 a stylo and air about
her that by no means indicated a pioii3
disregard of worldly thing Tasty
had evidently presided at her toilet. I
noticed a i light fluttering through the
congregation, and tho turning of many
heads towards tho minister's jksw, which
occupied tho most prominent placo in the
church. The lady did not look around
her, nor show tho slightest sign of inter
est iu tho people. How diftercnt in all
things was her appearance and bearing
from tho kiud, good, compliant Mrs.
Wharton, whoso pleasant, almost smiling
face, I had seen for so many years in that
pew a faco turning, as by instinct, its
mild sunlight ever and anon upon tho
congregation, while her husband broke for
them tho Bread of Life.
The contrast was hardlv agreeable.
44 She'll never do," whispered a lady
shadow of Miss Lane's, bending to my
car from tho pew just behind tho one I
occupied. 44 Pioud as a Lucifer, any one
can see. Such airs won't do for St. Char
ity." I mado ift reply. Though annoyed, I
was yet sensibly influenced by tho re
mark. Very still, almost liko a statute, Bf.t
Mrs. N., the minister's wifo, and I could
see that the child, a Jittlo girl six or sev
en years old, leaned very close to her.
How I wished sho would turn toward tho
congregation! How I longed to see her
faco! But I was not granted this desire
until after tho morning's services were
I was particularly pleased with Mr.
N(wton. His 6crmon, in contrast with
the discourses I had listened to from the
lips of Mr. Wharton, was a master-piece
ot eloquence. No one listened to him
with more rapt attention than Mrs. New
ton. At last tho services closed, and the
time caino when my restless curiosity was
to bo satisfied. Tho minister's wife
turned hor face to tho congregation, and
I had a view of every feature. It was a
face onco seen, to bo remembered. Class
ic almost to severity in its outline, tho
full lips and soft hazel eyes gave to it a
gontlo expression. You saw nt a glanco
that sho was a woman of thought as well
A few ladies gathered around her as
sho stepped from the pew, nnd I noticed
thnt her countenance lit up very pleasant
ly as sho spoke to them. But there was
nothing obsequious; no unduo familiari
ty ; no wordy affability. A certain air of
dignity and self-respect marked every at
titude of hor person and every expression
of her countenance. Any vulgar famili
arity toward her was out of tho question
I saw that at a glance.
But only a few ladies in tho congrega
tion ventured to npproach her. In the
eyes of many sho was proud, and they
were not going to force themselves upon
her notice The prejudice admitted into
their minds by othors mado them shun
rather than court her acquaintance. Of
tho few who did uot notice her somo were
attracted by affinity, and some by a do
sire to gain a littlo reflected importance.
Somo thought it but hospitable to f-how
her attentions, as a stranger among thorn,
and acted accordingly, though forco-work
was apparent Desiring to meet her and
mako her acquaintance, I asked to bo in
troduced, and was presented by a friend.
I thought her reception rather cold, and
after passing a formal word or two, mov
ed past her to speak to an old acquaint
ance whom I had not met for somo time.
44 How do you like our new miui&tcr's
wifo I" was almost tho first question.
44 Can't say ; must know something
about hor first" I answered.
44 She'll not do foi us " said my friend,
very warmly. She's not tho woman for
St. Charity !"
44 What's the defect f" I inquired.
44 It's all defect I" was the sweeping re
ply. 44 Just look at her 1 A pretty thing
for a minister's wife, indeed I Why sho
carries herself with tho air of a queen 1"
44 Mr. Newton," said I, 44 is a most
charming upeaker. I think I never heard
a moro beautiful sermon."
? Ob, Mr. Newton is splendid," replied
my acquaintance warmly. "But his wifo !
Ob, dear! it's . dreadful ! What could
have pososaed him to marry such a wo
man 1 ShVll never suit us in the world
J never, never 1 I don't blicvo ho's
professor. Sho did'nt stay to tho com
munion last Sunday ! Just to think of
that and .he's tho minister's wifo ! It's
been tho talk of the congregation ever
since! We fully expected her to lake a
class in tho Sunday school but no I wo
invited her to bo present nt our sewing
circle but no! sho couldn't leavo hor
children! A niero excuse, of course!-
Then wo elected her President of our In
dian Missionary Society; but sho declin
ed tho honor, saying that she had neither
time nor tato for such public duti'is;
that with her, charily, for tho present,
must begin nt home. Now isu't that a
Christian spirit for you? Our minister's
wife to talk of charity beginning at homo I
Why, sho's a heathen 1"
M church acquaintance waxed warm.
44 Somo of our people were eager enough
to get rid of dear, good Mrs. Wharton,"
sho added. "Sho wasu't bright and
fashionable enough for them ; but I rath
er think they've got their dose now !"
I met here and there, a lady of our
church who belonged to tho home duty
mind-your-own-busincs3 class, who did
not join in the hue and cry against Mrs.
Newton; nnd who thought that if sho
bad neither taste nor inclination for Sab
bath school teaching, sewing circles, or
missionary societies, the congregation
should not interfere with theso peculiari
ties. She had thrco littlo children, to
whom she gavo all a mother's care; and
as tho slender incomo which her husband
derived from the parish of St. Charity
(four hundred a year nnd tho parsonage)
would warrant her in keeping only a sin
gle domestic, a largo part of her timo had,
necessarily, to bo given to household du
ties. 44 Nobody can say," remarked ono
of thoso Indies, in my hearing, 44 that sho
neglects her children, or waste's her hus
band's income. Tho littlo pnrsonago hai
never looked half so ntti active, inside or
out ns now. Mrs. Wharton was not ti
dy, as we nil know; nnd things around
hor were gencrnlly nt sixes and sevens,
and as for her children, they were always"
neglected. Many times havo I seen them
playing in tho dirt while thoir mother
was at tho sewing circle, or somewhere
else that she had no business to be."
But tho ladios who talked iu this way
wcro among tho "queer" ones of tho con
gregation. They were not of the pious
kind. So all they said went for nothing.
Without 44 variableness or shadow of
turning" as Paul says, did Mrs. Newton
keep on her way. Home was her parish,
and sho was content to do her duty
there. Occasionally sho accoptod an in
vitation to take tea and spend an evening
abroad ; but in most cases she declined
theso ploasant entertainments, and though
over three months had passod there had
vet been no tea-driuking nt tho parsonage.
Mr. Newton, on tho other hand, mingled
very freely with his congregation sat
with them nt their tnbles, nnd joined
them in their social gatherings. Of course,
tho absence of Mrs. Newton on theso oc
casions always formed a subject of re
mark, nnd it was generally voted that
her failure to accompany" hor husband
very seriously marred tho pleasures of the
44 Ah, if his wifo were only liko him !"
This was invariably tho sighing ejacula
tion of Phccbo Lane, or somo of her
At last the matter assumed so serious
a shnpo in tho minds of certnin leading
lad ics in tho parish that it was determin
ed to wait upon Mrs. Newton and remon
strate with her on the courso she was pur
suing "a course of conduct" urged
Miss Lane, "that is working untold in
jury to our church. Ever since sho came
hero a chango for tho worse has been go
ing on in the congregation. Members are
growing cold or indifferent Our sewing
circles aro losing their interest tho month
ly concerts of prayer aro badly attended,
the Sflbbath school is dwindling nway.
Tho social sphere, always so warm and
attractive under the genial influence of
good Mrs. Wharton,' is fast losing jts pow
er and all from this strango conduct on
tho part of our minister's wife. She must
bo talked to on tho subject. If she does
pot know her duty sho must be taught
it If she won't henr her husband, she
must henr the congregation."
A committee of Indies Miss Lane at
tho head of them, and voluntary Ppokes
woman finally undertook to set Mrs.
Newton right in regard to her duties to
tho parish, nnd formally walled upon her
for that purpose. Curiosity prompted
mo lo nccept au offered membership in
that committee. Let mc picture the iu
