Miscellaneous Reading.
THE BETTER COUNTRY.
The man of severe toil, ac
customed to fatigue, whether of
the brain or of the muscles,
thinks of heaven as a place of
rest. The man whose lot is
cast among vicious associates
looks to heaven as the place of
pure society. The poor man is
interested in heaven as 4he
place of satisfied want. The
mourner for departed kindred
attaches great importance to the
ideas of reunion and recognition.
Analyze the conceptions which
any Christian forms of heaven,
and they will he found to have
been shaped by something spe
cial in his personal experience.
The prominent points in his
hope are in contrast with cer
tain prominent points in his
earthly condition. He thinks
of some present discomfort or
annoyance, and anticipates its
opposite - in another world.
What troubles him most in this
life is he delighted to believe wll
be absent from the life to come.
Hence the value to so many of
the various negatives by which
heaven is described in the Book
of books. It is refreshing to
know that certain evils are not
there, and never will be there.
When Robert Hall, who was
for years a physical sufferer,
was asked what idea of heaven
was most constant in his mind,
he replied, in an interval of par
oxysms of piercing anguish,
"Neither shall there lie anymore
pain!" A nother, in different Cir
cumstances, would have answer
ed, "No .sorrow," or "No disap
pointed hopes," .or "No sin."
Take the siugie idea, -No," and
see how comforting it must be to
millions. What else do most
men no earnestly deprecate? For
the removal of what else do they
more' devoutly pray, or more
persistently labor? Well, God
says there shall be no pain in
heaven. Whatever may be the
nature of the "spiritual body,"
one thing is certain, it will bo
subject to sutTering. No, feyered
blood, up inflamed tissues, no
broken bones, no twinging
nerves, no obstructed respiration
none of the thousand casulties
and forms of disease will be there
which here afflict humanity. All
in heaven is perfect health.
In this world how often does
pain, w hich no medical skill, no
curative agent, no tender assi
duity of friends can relieve,
make life a burden and prompt
the desire for its termination I
In eternal life there will be no
evil to render existence tedious,
or excite a wish for its discontin
uance. Here some sufferer ev
ery hour is exclaiming, "Why
would you detain me? Let me
go. To djq. is gain." .There,
as nothing can interfere with ab
solute ease, bo nqthing will di
minish the enjoyment of the
whole being or make the per
petuity of its condition dis
tasteful or undesirable.
"THAT'S ME!"
BY SPURGEON.
Sitting down in tho Orphan
ago grounds upon one of the
seats, we -were talking to one
of our brother trustees, when a
little fellow, we should think
about eight years of age, left
the other boys who were playing
around us, ar;d eamo doliber
ately up to us. Ho opened fire
upon us thus :
" Please, Mister Spurgeon,
I want to come and sit down on
that seat between you two gen
tlemen." "Come along, Bob, and toll
us what you want." ;
" Please, Mr. Spurgeon, sup
pose there was a little boy who
had no father, who. Jived in an
Orphanage with a lot of other
little boys' who had no fathers,
and suppose those little boys
had mothers and aunt's who
came onco a mouth, and brought
them apples and oranges, and
gave them pennies; and suppose
this little boy had no mother
and no aunt, and so nobody
never came to bring him nice
things don't you think some
body ought to give him a pen
ny? 'Cause, Mr..' Spurgeon,
that's me." ,
Somebody, felt something
wet in his eye, and Bob". got' a
sixpence, and went off- in" ,a
greaj; uto , ot delight. Poor
lit tle .soul, he had siezed the op-jonwtty--h
pour -outf a bitter
ness which had rankled in his
little heart, and made him' mis
erable when the monthly visit
ing day came around, and, as he
said, "Nobody never came to
bring him nice things."
Turning the tables, we think
some grown-up persons, who
were once Bobs and Harrys,
might say : " Suppose there
was a poor sinner who deserved
to be sent to hell, but was for
given all his sins by sovereign
grace, and made a chttd of God
don't you think he ought to
help on the Saviour's cause?
"'Cause, Mr. Spurgeon, that's
me.,, -
Anecdote of Rowland Hill.
Rowland Hill was once driv
en by a storm of rain into a
village inn, and compelled to
spend the night. When it
grew late, the landlord sent a
request by the waiter that the
guest would go to bed. Mr.
Hill replied, "I have been wait
ing a long time expecting to
be called' to family prayer."
"Family prayer ! I don't know
what you mean, sir; we don't
have such things here." "In
deed ! then tell your master I
can not go to bed until we have
had family prayer." The wai
ter informed his master, who in
great consternation bounced in
to the room occupied the faith
ful minister, andsaidJ.Sir, I
wish you would go to bed; I
cannot go to bed until I have
seen all the lights out! I am so
afraid of fire." "So am I," was
tho reply, "but I have been ex
pecting to be fummoned to
family prayer." "All very
,;'ootl, sir, hut it can net be done
at an inn.'' "Indeed! then
pray got me my horse. I can
not sleep in a house where
there is no family prayer."
The host preferred to dismiss
his prejudice rather than his
guest, and said : "I have no
objection to prayer, but I don't
know how." "yell, the.n sum
mon your people and let us see
what can be done." The land
lord obeyed, and directly the
astonished domestics were upon
their knees, and the landlord
was called upon to pray. "Sir,
I never prayed in my life, I
don't know how." "Ask God to
teach you," was the gentle re
ply, tho landlord said, folding
his hands, "God teach, yp h.qw
to WM? 'TN in prayer, my
friend," cried Mr. Hill, joyfully;
(j vin. j. a. iu ouio jl uuu i
know what to say now, sir."
"Yes you do ; God has taught
you how to pray. Now thank
him for it." "Thank you, God
Almighty, for letting us pray to
your "Amen! Amen!" ex
claimed M.r. Hill, and prayed
himself. TQ years afterwards,
Mr. Hill found in that village a
chapel and a- school, ns the re
sult of the first effort of family
prayer at the "Black Lion."
HE MADE FOR YOU AN END.
BY SPURGEON.
There is not a spider hanging
on the King's wall but hath its
errand ; there is not a nettle
that groweth in tho corner of
the churchyard but hath its pur
pose ; there is not a single in
sect fluttering in the breeze but
accomplished some divino de
cree ; and I will never have it
that God created any.man, es
pecially any Christian man, to
be a blank, and to be a nothing.
Ho' made you for an end. find
out what that end is find out
your niche, and fillet;. If it be
ever so little if it is only to be
a hewer of wood and drawer of
water do something in this
great battle for God and truth.

How the Quakers Marry.
The ceremony fs very simple.
It is nevertheless a form signi
ficant and impressive; The first
public step',, after mutual en
gagement rs tho reading of the
names of both tho man and the
woman,
, vujiv, ue;i
with the an-
nouncenient of
their espousal,
by tho Clerk. This step is termed
"Giving la;" -that is, handing
in their proposals of matrimony.
At, the next regular quarterly
iheeting .-thi case is further
dcted, upon.! If no valid objeg
tions to, tf)i union have meari
;i'imofi."hVen .. ascertained, they
'iPa;sa4leetkg;n as i h termer
Tho third or last step is at
a subsequent meeting for wor
ship. The time having arrived
for the ceremony, the man
walks into the female
apartment of the church, goes
to the woman and conducts her
to a designated seat in the
men's side of the house. After
sitting a few moments in si
lence, the parties ' arise, take
each other by the hand, and
thus declare : "In the pres
ence of the Lord, and those as
sembled, we take each other
to be husband and wife, promis
ing, with divine assistance, to
be loving and faithful to each
other until death separates us."
The ceremony ended, a certifi
cate of the marriage is read be
fore the congregation. This cer
tificate is signed by the con
tracting parties. It is thus
seen that the Quakers seek to
exercise great prudence in their
matrimonial alliance. And well
may they do so, Much trouble
often comes to churches through
unhappy' marriages. Such
troubles are usually the most
serious and lead to the gravest
results. By bringing church
discipline to bear against care
less courtship and hasty mar
riages, the Quakers avoid
serious troubles and insure, in
the main, the truest and hap
piest matrimonial relations. ...
How the Quakers Marry. The Filibuster Edgar Stewart.
This vessel, which left New
London, Conn., on the 28th of
March last, with a cargo of
arms and ammunition for tho
Cuban insurgents, arrivod at
Baltimore, from Key West, on
the 31st ult. After much sail
ing to and fro and lying in port
since last March, she finally
succeeded two or three weeks
ago, in landing her canro at
Porto Lino and Porto Aquoro,
on the Cuban coast. The cargo
consisted of 1,000 Reraineton
rifles, ,000 Springfield ritles,
several thousand 'percussion
caps, 1,000 hand grenades, five
tons of powder, medicines, med
icine chest, psovisions, and
other necessities for the strug
gling Cubans. The Stewart
will remain in Baltimore two or
three weeks for the purpose of
repairs, but what her move
ments will be after that time
are not known,, Colonel Ague

muniments of war on the ves
sel, hag left Baltimore for New
York.' The commander of the
Stewart, during this succeessful
expedition, was Captain Sem

service in 1868 to take com

run the blockade of the Span

scent leeward. The elevation
of the waves varies according
to the strength of the wind. A
very heavy gale raises them
from six to eight feet above the
common level ; but in very
strong eales they attain an ele
vation of thirty feet This mo
tion oi the surtace oi the sea is
not perceptible to a ereat depth.
In the strongest gales it is sup
posed not to extend beyond
seventy-two feet below the sur
face ; and at a depth of ninety
feet, the sea is perfectly still.
The form and even the size
of the waves vary according to
the depth and extent of the sea.
In shallow water where the
lower part of the waves ap
proaches the bottom and meets
with resistance, the waves are
abrupt and irregular, and this
is also the case in confined seas :
whilst on the open seas they
are wide and long, and rise and
fall with great regularity.
When the waves run to a slow
shore, tho slope of the ground
breaks their force and they ter
minate in a tranquil m.tune;-,
but when they are inipellot-l
against an elevated roc
iiy coas,',
being repelled by tho lock, thr,
produce what-i;j called fi:.i'.

The two Louisiana Senators
elect, ono chosen by each
Louisiana Legislature, who
claim the fragment of Kel-
logg's term, "which expires
March 4th, have arrived in
Washington. They came from
New Orleans together, and the
presentation of their credentials
to the Senate will bring before
that body the entire Louisiana
controversy for a decision. The
Senate may avoid the issue by
a postponement of action, but
if it declares one or the other
candidate entitled to the seat,
it w, ill recognize the Legislature
that elected him, and, as a re
sult, will decide tho quarrel
that has continued so long at
New Orleans,
The Toledo, Ohio, Sun is of
tho opinion that of .the $300,-
000,000 collected from debtors
by lawyers itf this country in a
year, one-half the amount re
mains in the hands of the
plaintiffs lawyers, while an
equal amount goes into tho
hands of tho attorneys for tlio
defense This may be a little
extravagant, but it is safe to
say that seventy-five per con!,
of all collected through the
courts is consumed by the ex
penses account. The Sun adds:
"Better would it be for the peo
ple if all laws for the collection
of debts wero abolished."

The review of the whale

can not bo called successful.
During 1372, 79,211 barrels of
oil were taken, and 210,876
pounds of whalebone, which in
all respects. is' a great falling
