Ab me, this spirit auileth ill
A woman who it woman st.ll,
A being born to bow and I ielil,
Her weaknesa is her iiimt shield.
The storms of life she nay not brave,
Her only refuge is the grave,
When sorrows darken round her head,
Her sweeteit hone is with the dead.
But if Religion's holy ray,
Beam on her lowly troubled way,
And shed its inttnence o'er her heart,
How quick her weakness doth depart.
Her eyet in meekness raised to heaven,
Though every hope on earth be riven,
Bespeak for her a power sublime,
Triumphant over Death and Time.

Uy Father I will feel is near,
Then wherefore should I weep or fear.
O quench within my heart the fume
That goads me on to worldly fame)
Instead of laurels for my brow,
O grant me Christian virtues low.
O Lord may Chtttity be mine.
And in my every action thine,
May I from pomp and pleasure turn,
And sweet content in duty learn.
And though my path through soirow lead,
May I rejoice at every tread,
And with meek confidence depend

been very strong ir. lir lauo Newton, whoso
liability lo abstraction has alreadv been alluded
to. "During the tw years suya Hiul 'which

one Mho asked him on una occasion hnw he
arrived at bis discoveries, he replied, 'by al
ways thinking unto them.' And at another
lime be thus expressed his mothod of proceed
ing, 'I keep the subject constantly before me,
and wait till the first dawning opens slowly,
by littles and little, into a full and clear light.'
Again, in a letter to Dr. Bentlv , he ssvs. "If I
have done the public any service this way, it
is due to nothing but industry and patient
thought." Iiiot mentions further, that in gen
eral the intensity of thinking was with liitn so
ureal, that it entirely abstracted his attention
frnm other matters, and oniifined him exclusive-
tooiio olijict. rims we see that he never
was occupied at tho sania tiuin i iln two scicn-

The followinsr case, from tho pleasant
style in which it is told, will amuse the rea

that place, where his attention wa attrac
ted by a curiously figured stone in a stack
of uhiinnoyv lf nitviincpd towards it. till
he was interrupted by one ol the benches,
from which, however, he tumbled one ol
the baskets into the stream, which was bear
ing the fish to their native element. The
visage of the lady was instantly in light
ning, and her voice in thunder ; but the ob
ject of her wrath was deaf to the loudest
sounds, and blind to tho most alarming col
ors. SShe stamped, ccsticulated, scolded,
brought a crowd that filled the place ; but
the philosopher turned not from his i.nger
gaze and his inward meditations on the
stone. While the woman's breath held

and he had taken his departure.'
Alany curious anecdotes ot u similar kind
are related of the Kev. Dr. George ll.w ve-t,
one of the ministers of Thames Hilton. .So
confused on some occasions were the ideas
of this singular man, that he has been
known to write a letter to one person, ad
dress it ton second, slid si.-ud it i u illicit.
liu wasoiicu on lliu eve ol being married
to thu bishop's daugiiter, wlien having gone
gudgvon-hsliing, lie lorgot t.ie ciri-iini-
slauce, and overpaid the canonical hoiir.
wnicb so ullt'ilded the lady, that she imlig
lijuily broke oil' the mulch. If ii beggar
happened 'o take oil' liii hat to him on tin-
streets, in hopes of receiving alms, lie would
make him a bow, tell turn lie was lus mo-it
humble servant, ami walk on. He has been
known on Stuiciiiy to torget the days on
which he was to ollicinte; uud would walk
into church with his gun under his arm to
ascertain what the people wanted there.
Once, when he was playing at backgam
mon, he poured out a glass ot wine, anil it
being his turn to throw, having the box in
one hand and the glass in the other, and
being extremely dry, and unwilling to lose
tiny tune, he swallowed down both the
dice, and diichnrgcd the wine upon the dice-
board. 'Another time,' says the amuang
narrative which has been published of hit
peculiarities, in one of his absent tits, he
mistook his friend's house, and went into
another, the door of which happened to
sian I ii ii : and n seivnnt being in the
way, li.i rambled .ill over the house, till,
coining uiio a middle room, wiiere mere
was an old lady ill in bed of the quiiicv, he
stumbled over the night stool, threw a close-
horse down, and might not have ended
there, had not the alliL'hted patient made
a noise at his intrusion, which brought up
the servants, who, on bnding Dr. Harvest
in the room, instead of tho upothecary that
was momentarily expected, miiclcd the la
dy's fears, who by this time was t.ikeu with

'His notorious heedlessness was so apparent,
that no one would lend him a horse, us he
