There is no Death.-. ; -There
is no death : The stare go down
To rise upon some fairer shore ;
And bright in Heaven's jeweled crown
They shine foreverinore.
There is no death: The dust we trefid
Shall change beneath the summer showers,
To golden rain or mellow fruit,
Or rainbow-tinted flowers.
rTrho mn!fi rnolra rlisorcanize
To feed the hungry moss they bear ;
The forest leaves drink daily life
From out the viewless air.
There is no death : The leaves may fall,
The flowers may fade and pass away
They only wait, through wintry hours
The coming of the May.
There is no death : An angel form
Walks o'er the earth with silent tread,
He bears our best loved things away,
And then we call them " dead."
He leaves our hearts all desolate
He plucks our fairest, sweetest flowers
Transplanted into bliss, they now
Adorn immortal bowers.
The bird-like voice, whose joyous tones
Made glad the scene of sin and strife,
Sings now an everlasting song
Amid the tree of life.
And where he sees a smile too bright,
Or hearts too pure for taint and vice,
He bears it to that world of light
To dwell in Paradise.
Born unto that undying life,
They leave us but to come again ;
"With joy we welcome them the same,
Except in sin and pain.
And ever near us ; though unseen,
The dear immortal spirits tread;
For all the boundless universe
Is life there is no dead.
Marriage in Egypt.
When an Egyptian wants a wife, he
is not allowed to visit the harems of his
friends to select one, for Mohammed
forbade men to see the face of any wo
man they could marry, that is to say,
any besides their mothers or sisters. A
man is, therefore, obliged to employ a
"khatbeh," or matchmake, to find out
for him, for which service, of course, she
expects " backsheese "that is, payment.
The khabtbeh, having found a girl, re
commends her to the man as exceeding
ly beautiful, and eminently suitable to
him. The father is then waited upon
to ascertain the dowry he requires ; for
all wives are purchased as they were in
patriarchal days. When Jacob had no
money to pay for Rachel, he served her
father seven years as an equivalent ; and,
when duped, was obliged to serve a
second time to secure his prize. (Gen.
xxxix.) Fathers still refuse to give a
younger daughter in marriage till an
elder shall have been married. The peo
ple of Armenia, in Asiatic Turkey, for
bid a younger son to marry before an
elder ; and. this is likewise the law of the
The price of a wife varies from five
shillings to filteen hundred dollars.
The girl may not be more than five or
six years old, but, whatever lie r age, two
thirds of the dowry is at once paid to the
father, in the presence of witnesses. The
father then or his representative says, "I
betroth to thee my daughter," and. the
young man responds, "I accept of such
betrothal." Unless among the lower
classes, the father expends the dowry in
the purchse of dress, ornaments, or fur
niture for the bride, which never become
the property of the husband. Even
when betrothed, the intercourse of the
the parties is very restricted. The
Arabs will not allow them to see each
other ; but the Jews are not quite so
particular. The betrothals often contin
ue for years before the man demands his
wife, thus : "Sampson went down and
talked to the woman, or espoused her,
and "after a time, he returned to take
Girls are demanded at the age of ten,
and bet wee that and sixteen years ; but
after sixteen few men will seek them,
and the dowry expected is then propor
Girls in Egypt are often mothers at
thirteen and grandmothers at twenty
six ; and in Persia they are said to be
mothers at eleven, grandmothers at
twenty-two, and past child-bearins: at
thirty. When a man demands his be
trothal, a day is fixed for the nuptials,
and for seven nights before he is expec
ted to give a feast, which, however, is
furnished by the guests thenselves.
Thus one sends coffee, another rice, an
other sugar, etc.
The principal time ' of this continued
feast, is the night before the consumma
tion. The conduct is entrusted to the
"friend of the bridegroom." (John iii.
29.) About the middle of this day the
bride arrives at the house, and retires to
. the harem, where she sits with her moth
er, sisters and female friends. At the
third or fourth watch of the night three
or four hours after sunset the bride
groom, who has not yet seen his fair
one, goes to the mosque to pray, accom
panied by "meshals," or torches and lan
terns, with music. Upon his return he
is introduced to his bride, with whom,
having given her attendant a present to
retire, he is left alone. He then throws
- off her vail,and for the first time sees her
face. If satisfied, he informs the women
outside, who immediatly express their
joy by screaming "Zuggereet," which
is echoed by the women in the house,
-an dby those in the neighborhood.

AN ACT TO ENABLE THE BANKS OF THE

: Whereas,' The financial policy of the Federal
Government adopted to maintain the national
credit, with the heavy taxes imposed by that Gov
