.Death ..Warrant cf Christ.
The Courier des Elats Unls, of a late date,
says: Chance has put into our hands the
most imposing- and interesting judiciil
document, to all Christians, that has ever
been xccorded in human annals, that is, the
identical death warrant of our Lord Jesus
jCM.rutt.. We transcribe the document from
a copy of the translation: - -'- - . '
Rendered by Potius Pilate, acting Gover-
' .nor of Lower Galilee, that Jesus of Naza
reth Shall Suffer Death on the Cross.
'In the year seventeen of the Empire of
Tiberias Ca-s'ar, and the 4th of March, the
city of the holy Jerusalem: Anea3 and
Caiaphs being priests, sacrificators of the
people of God, I, Pontius Tilate, Governor
of the prtelory, condemn Jesus of Nazareth
to die on 'the cross between two thieves

4. lie calls himself, falsely, the son of
5. lie calls himself King of Israel.
6. lie entered into the temple, followed
by the multitude bearing palm branches in
their, hands. '
Order the centuriaa, Quintius Cornelius,
to lead him to the place of execution.
Forbid any person, whomsoever, poor or
rich, to oppose the death of Jesus.
The witnesses tht.t signed the death of
l! Daniel Robani, a-Pharisee.,

3. Capet, a citizen.
Jesus shall go out of the city by the gate
The above sentences are engraved on a
copper plate. Oa one side is written these
words: - - - . - ; '
"A similar plate is sent to each of these
l was found ia an antique vase of white
marble, while excavating in' the' city of
Aquilla, in the Kingdom of Naples, in the
year 1825, and was discovered by the Cora
imssiarat of Arts attached to the French
armies. At the expedition of Naples it was
found enclosed in a box of ebony, in the
Sacristy of Caurtem.
The French translation was made by the
members of the Commission of Arts. The
children requested earnestly that the plate
might not.be taken away from them. The
request was-graatad as a reward for the
rmy. Dr. Dennon, one of the savons,
paused a plate to be made of the rxodel, on
w which he cngravud the above sentence. At
the sale of his collection of curiosities it
was bought by Lord Howard for. 5881
Sheriff's " Attachment ."-
'ood story, of. -which an
ho herou .fVm-r wn-r
session, an' .
Imsinnss whr'-lrowded ui. J. . . f at term
limo he stopped at the door of a beautiful
widow on the euuny bide of thirty, who, by
the way, had often bestowed melting glan
ces upon the' aforesaid sheriff. He was
admitted, and the widow appeared;- the
confusion and fright which the arrival of
her visitor occasioned, set off (o greater ad
vantage than usuel the captivating charms
of th3 widow M-
Her cheeks bore
the. beautiful blended tints cf the apla
blossom; her lips resembled the rosebuds,
upon which tho morning dew yet lingered,
and her eyes were liLa quivers of Cupid;
rrad'Marces of love and tendereess, with
which they are iillcd, resembled arrows
which only invited a ;beau" (pardon the
pan) to do full execution. After a few
' "Madam," said the matter ofrfact bheriff,
"I have an attachment for you."
A deeper blush than usual mantled the
checks of 'the fair widow, whib the glances
of her downcast eyes were centered upon
her beautiful foot, which, half concealed by
flowing drapery, patted the floor. "Sir,
tho attachment is reciprocated."
For soma time the sheriff maiutaiued an
astonished silence, at length he said:
-'"Madam will you proceed to court?"
."Proceed to court'."; replied tho '-'lady
with a merry laugh, then shaking her head,
she Baid: "No sir; though this is leap
year, I will not take advantage of license
thorein granted to my sex, and, therefore,
I greatly prefer thit you should proceed to
court." 7 . ' ... . .-
Dut, madaiu, the justice is waiting."
fcJi'Lc't Lim wait; 1 aui'r.ot disposed to
hurry matters .in so unbecoming a manner;
and, besides, "sir when ' the ceremony "is

We drop the curtain.
Men are judged by their actions; as trees
are by their fruits. Every act cf the man,
whether done in a private or public capaci-ty,-ha
its significance; and is looked to,
in passing judgement upon his character.
Actions have ever been held, the world
over, to be the result of motives, the evi
de nces of feeling, and the indications of
purpose, on the pa$of the actors. Such
is the all-embracing rule, fixed and ground
ed on the experience of mankind, by which
men, whether acting singly or in bodies,
are judged by their. fellow men. And it is
folly for man to assert that he is not in
heart and purpose what hia actions indicate
him to be; bitter waters do not flow from
sweet fountains. This being true, it be
hooves man, whether in the private or pub
lic -walks-of busy life, to weigh well the
drift and tendency of his words and actions,
before they are uttered or performed. By
doing so, private Individuals and men in
high official position will avoid the morti
fication attendant to retractions, explana
tions and apologies; which often fail to re
gain the esteem and confidence lost, by
intemperate speech and hasty action. :.
What is a Darling? Some one asks
"What. is a darling?" an-d very prettily
answers the question no one but a father
or a mother could have written if: .
"A darling is a dear little beaming mrl
who meets one on the door-step; who. flings
her arms around one's neck, and kisses one
Willi lipr Rnul r.f Invp- vclir poives nnft'q 1 1 : f".
, , , , , , ,
WHO relieves one Of ones coat and hands
the' tea and toast so prettily; who places
her elfin form at the peano and warbles
forth, unsolicited, such delicious songs;
who seats herself at one's footstool and
clasps her hands and asks all sorts of queer
questions, with such bright eye3 and flush
ing face; and on whos9 light, glossy curls
one places one's hand and breathes 'God
bless her,' as the fairy form departs."
An eye witness says that at a revival
meeting in Illinois, an impulsive Dutchman
was present. In the progress of the revi
val Dutchey's feelings becoming over
powering, and, rising and swinging his hat,
he exclaimed with unction, "Hurray for
Shesus! He ish de feller!" The effect was
electrical, and serious - countenances gave
way to merry-ones.
Sam Bowles, one of the editors of the
Springfield (Mass.) Rcpullican, (Hep.)
writes from Washington that Congress is
like the boy out on a rough sea in an open
boat: "Can you pray Jim?" "No."
"Can you sing a hymn?" "No." "Can't
you, then, repeat a verse of the Bible?"
"Not a single line," "Well," with a sigh,
"something has got to ba done, and that
d d quick."
