They tell me I was false to thee.
They tell me I was false to thee,
But they are falsa who say it;
The vcw 1 made was pure and free,
And time shall ne ex betray it
kid rry heart on virtue's shrme,
I loved truth honor, kindness;
I love them still, I thought diem thine,
Too soon f wept my blindness.
Tis thou wert false to them and me :
My worship still I cherish
"jIy love, siill true, his urnl from thee,
To find them or to perish.

M'$. Stcisshelm on Dancing. The
following remarks are from the piquant
e of Mrs. Swisshclm:
"One curious fact we have observed
Vith regard to dancing. This is, the
more deeply a church or individual pro
fessor is steeped in the spirit of money
grabbling, or intemperance, the greater
their abhorence of dancing. This ap
pears to be a kind -of convenient scape
goat on which the sins of the congrega
tion arc laid, that they may be borne in
the wilderness. Let the preacher at
any time submit to a gag which shall,
on some special occasion, forbid his
opening his mouth for the dumb, or re
proving a wealthy distiller, or fat usu-
Ter, who grinds the poor to pay pew recv.
and forthwith wo get a fresh anatheniu
Show us a wealthy dea-
cons's wife who will haggle with a wid
ow to get washing done for twelve and a
half cents a dozen, and then pay her in
trade, or give two dimes and four cop
pers for twenty-five cents, and we will
show you one who will take a spasm
over the iniquities of a cotillion. We
never knew the rule to fail, and have
watched its workings so long that when
ever any one begins a lecture on danc
ing we suspect him or her of boing a
worshipper of mammon. Old Chris
tian, in his long journey, danced for
joy, but the man with the muck-rake
was too busy. Nothing appears better
calculated to contend with the hard,
money-loving spirit of our age, than mu
sic and dancing. It tends to melt this
hard crust which the dust of ledgers
forms around the hearts of our people,
and there is no place to which wc should
go with a subscription paper for a char
itable object with more hope of success
than a social party where all were danc
ing to the music of two good violins and
a trombone."
