Yet, O. my 8oul, wliat liaat tltou done, Tlieac llire-Bcore years and nine t Hast thou tx?en ever true to One, Whose favors are divine f Help me to feel, Thou 8ource of Love, Omnipotent, All-Seeing, That 'tia In Thee I livo and move, ' And have in Thee my being. Fwllier, I lliank Thee for the power ' To labor and to love, Thnt while my voice la raised in prayer, My aoul enn look above. Thanks for those faculties retained, Which blessed my earlier youth, The skill to work Thy vineyard hero, Or search for loftier truth. Thanks for the boon of health and strength, With skill these hands to guide, For competence, by Inlior saved, And every want supplied. Two props are left on which ta lean, If by the world forgot j (Forgive, I pray, the starting tear, When tliiukiug "one is not.") Early in life his mission closed, His earthly duties done ; He Hew to save his country's life, And for it gave his own. OU, Grace I which spared twice fifteen years, A soul devote to siu I OU, wondrous love to then arrest, And draw the wanderer in I . But, all I dear Lord, what base return Has all Thy goodness met I This heart with shame must ever bum, It's baseness e'er regret. Thou know'st, O Lord, bow I have strove To walk ia wisdom's ways : And yet, how weak baa been my love i How incomplete my praise 1 For all the countless blessings given I've no return to make, Ami should I be received to Heaven, 'T would be for Hit dear sake. This honse of clay, Almighty God, In which our spirits dwell, Must soon embrace its native -sod, But how soon, none can tell. Yet each revolving season speaks, In signs well understood, "Tny house is frail, its timbers creak," "Prepare to meet thy God." And, what, my Soul, has been thy course, Since Jesus was let in ? IIhsI thou been faithful to thy vows, ltenouncing every sinf And more ; since thou bust occupied An uuder-stcward's place, To bear the symbols of JIu love, The emblems of His grace T Remember, Lord, that "mnn is dust j" Thy pard'niDg mercy give.

Than rank and titles, a thousand ibid, la a healthy body, a mind at ease. And simple pleasures that always please ; A heart that can feel another's woe, And share bis joys wllh a gcuial glow, With sympathies large enough lo enfold All men as brothers, is better than gold. Better than gold is ajcouscienco clear, Though toiling for bread in a humble sphere, Doubly ble9t with content and health, Untried by the lust or cares of wealth ; Lowly living and lofty thought Adorn and ennoble a poor man's cot ; For miud and morula in nature's plan Are the genuine test of a gentleman. Better than gold Is the sweet repose Of the sous of toil when their labors close ; Better than gold 13 the poor man's sleep And the balm that drops oh his slumbers deep, Bringing sleepy draughts lo the dowuy bed Where luxury pillows his aching head, His simple opiate labor deems A shorter road to the land of dreams. Better than gold Is a thinking mind, That in the realm of books can And A treasure surpassing Australian ore, And live with the great and good of yore, . The sage's lord and Uie poet's lay. The glories of empire passed away, The world's great drama will thus unfold, And yield a pleasure better than gold. Better than gold Is a peaceful home, Where all tho fireside charities come, The shrine of love, the heaven of life, Hallowed by mother or sister or wife, However humble the home may be ; Or tried with sorrow by heaven's decree, The blessings that never were bought or sold And center there, are better than gold. A Nkobo's Similik. An old negro named Pete was very much troubled about his sins. Perceiving him one day with a very downcast look, his master asked him the can so. "O, massa! I'm such a great sinner !" "lint, Pete," said his master, "yon aro foolish to take it so much to heart. You never see me troubled about my sins." "I know de reason, massa, said Pete; "when you go out duck-shooting and kill ne duck and wound another, don't you run alter de wounded dnckf "Yes, Pete and the master wondered what was coining next. "Well, massn, dat is de way w!d yon and me; de debble has jrot yon, sure; but aa he am not sure ol me lie chases dis chile all de time."- -; . l( Thankfulness. If one should give me a dish of sand, and toll me that there were particles of iron in it, I might look for them with my eyes, and search for them witb my clumsy fingers, and be unable to detect tbcm ; but let roe take a mngnet and sweep through it, and it would draw to itself the roost invisible particles, by the mere power of attrac tion. The unthankful nert, like my finger in the sand, discovers no mercies; but let the thankful heart sweep through the day, and, as the magnet finds tho iron, so it will find, in every hour, some heavenly blessings, only the iron in God's sand is gold. 0, W.Ilolmu. From the Picayune. Whose Body is That? A RICH SCENE IN THE NEW ORLEANS SOROSIS. Not long since a prominent member of the New York Sorosis viaiu-d our city, and expressed surprise that no organiza tion like the Soioais lial been established among us. Iler acquaintance bring ne cessarily limited, her views on the matter were only imparted to a few kindred spirits, and these by reason of recent residence of like li mile J ae-nuninfiiicp. Hut what they lacked in social influence waa nniply compensated by an enterpris ing spirit and progressive views of life. The wretched indifference that prevailed nmong the beau cx to enlarged privi leges must bo dissipated, they thought; and to this end they proceeded to oriran izc and set on toot an organization that would accomplish this end. The first thing to be done was lo procure a suit able club-room ; but the "Varieties," the "I'oston," and other similar organizations declining to permit a primary meeting within their buildings, it became neces sary, as a last resoi t, to take a hall con venient ly located near Tivoli Circle. This secured, a meeting was appointed! nnd Monday night the initiatory mem bers proceeded to organize the institu tion. The attendance was limited, and only six ladies of an uncertain age en listed in the laudable enterprise. Utiles and regulations were adopted, and a miniature lecture on woman's rights her alded the advent of the new enterprise. After this, of course, refreshments were to bo taken, and the ladies evinced no great reluctance in testing the virtues of the exhiliraling liquids set before them. But their meeting was destined to an ubhappy conclusion. The hall had been lor some time deserted, and the proprie tor had lodged in one corner the (kbrit of several broken stoves, and an old euii board or two. These had been taken possession of by an old cat and a grow ing family of felines. Suddenly nn ani mated discussion was interrupted by a prolonged wail, like an infant in agony. "Sisters 1" exclaimed the Prcsfdcut, "did any one bring a baby?" There was a brief silence, and then a shaking of heads all around. "Wo will proceed 1" said the elderly sister, wielding the baton of oflice, and again the conversation grew animated. Hut again the wail longer, louder than before. "Sisters, whom docs thnt baby belong to?" sternly demanded the New York Sorosis. "Not mine!" ' "Not mine!" "I should hardly think it's mine !" ex claimed an elderly lady, whose life had been passed in meditations on the per fidy of man. "I'm thankful I've uo such crime on my conscience!" "Is there any married sister among us?" inquired the lady. The jonngest of tun number, a blue eyed, meek-looking disciple, confessed that she had been once, but wasn't now. Nevertheless, she assured them that nothing unfortunate had resulted in her brief experience, and the baby wasn't hers. "We will proceed I" and for a time the concealed felines were silent. Hut the cat was only husbanding her strength for a moro vigorous serenade. It burst at length ju screeches that would have rivaled bedlam. The hall was filled with the discordant sound, and the ladies held their breath in astonishment. Then followed the short, quick spits; the feline growls and screeches of angry cats; the noise grew loud, the uproar deafening. "Sisters, eilher the evil ono is among ns, or that baby's got the hydrophobia. I'm going to leave!" and the'lndy darted or the door, followed by her disciples. Just as they reached tho head of the stairs, the uproar broke out anew, nnd the cut and her young scampered across the floor. : , This was the climax of affright. Shriek after shriek testified their hor ror of ; the situation. . Those behind rushed on those in front, and the whole party rolled down the steep stairs, nnd, reaching tho street, fled precipitately for their homes ; the New York Sorosis ex pressing her pense of the disturbance by tho simple ejaculation : "Heaven help us! What a baby !" China. Mr. Caleb dishing, who is perhaps the best authority in the United States on Chinese affairs, tells us that China contains single provinces, each of which in population, wealth, civiliza tion ; education, and all else that gives power to a State-is superior to England, France, Prussia, or any other of the first powers of Europe ; that the Empire has 600,000,000 inhabitants (more than all Europe combined) ; that this inconceiva bly vast population is governed by t.e strongest, brightest intellects of the land, upon a system which waa old thousands of years before the oldest Governments ot Europe began to exist ; that educa tion is universal, even more general than with ns, there being absolutely no class of people that cannot read and write; that the great body of the Chinese ni t intelligent, industrious, apt to learn any thing and everything, frugal, pre-eminently patriotic, and more profoundly at tached, perhaps, than the people of any other nation in the world to their own laws nnd institutions ; that, China was a great nation ages before what we call the ancient nations of Greece, and Homo had bocn founded, and has remained a great nation, while its earliest cotcmpo poraries, Egypt and Assyria, are only known imperfectly in the most ancient of the earliest records of our race ; that the Rothschilds, tho As tors and Stewarts among the millionaires of Enrope and American aYe but pigmies in wealth com pared to some of the great capitalists of China. ax I i saa aa i aa.mi sas ' g Among tho blocks that cumber tbe ground abont the Washington Monu ment, not having been laid in their places before that enterprise was struck with paralysis, is one from Louisiana inscribed, "Louisiana is ever true to the Union ;" and one from Tennessee witb Jackson's famous motto, "The Union, it. must and eball be preserved." Such is life. ' The Northern Lights. Tho beautiful exhibition of the North ern Lights witnessed by the inhabitant of Manhattan Island, on tho 15th ulU, covered a vast extent of land and sea. From Nova Scotia and Canada north ward, nnd Maryland and Virginia in the south, wo have report of the splendid heavenly display. Wo have no definite report of its eastern or western bound ary. Within the Artie Circle it may have belted the globe. On onr lino of latitude (forty-orc north) the exhibition appears lo have been brightest in this Metropolitan district ; but even here it "paled in ineffectual fires" before the moro brilliant display at Montreal. We have no doubt that tho exhibition was ono of surpassing splendor and sublimi ty within the latitudes of Central Green land and Alaska. These wonderful lights come from the icy regions round the Pole. They are, we may say, phospho rescent and electri'-al, aud although they lise above the earth's atmosphere they reach to the earth's surfaces, and in a strong current or a succession of waves, as in the air, they run along the ground. We have the evidence of this fact in the woiking of various telegraph lines for several hours without the aid of the usual batteries. Our idea of the celestial illumination is that to ns it wns but the outer edges of a great electrical cloud drifting down to ns from the icy laboratory round the Pole. Yet within this city, as an obser ver near the Cooper Institute informs ns, at near eleven o'clock p. m., the central point of the display was exactly ove head. Right overhead there appeared to be a circular opening in the luminous vapor which otherwise seemed to fill the air, and the color of this opening may be described as a deep "invisible green.' Radiating from this opening, like the rays of light streaming out from the set ting moon behind a hill, or like the spokes from "the hub of the universe," were numerous luminous lines, aud bars, and and lights and shades of different hues, but chiefly of a phosphorescent white ness, which feebly flamed till faded out like tlx traces of a lucifer match on the wall. The changing combinations and dissolving views of this wonderful exhi bition were rar id, yet so soft and deli cate that it was exceedingly difficult to mark tny passing transformation. The radii from tho hub were comparatively short on the south side, extending less than thirty degrees from the zenith, while nori Ii ward they descended to the gteat bnnk of the transparent but still dense electrical vapor w hich lay around the horizon. The radiation teferred lo shows that this luminous vapor at the time was all above the winds of the earth's atmos phere ; tor otherwise it would be driven in parallel lines across the sky, or in ir regular liues with the baffling currents ot the upper air. That which we have described as an opening in the sky over head was perhaps a dense body of elec trical elements from which the rays, in dicated were supplied. At all events the display was exceedingly interesting, and its solution has, so far, pazzlcd our profonndest philosophers. Iu fact, There are more things In heaven and earth, Horatio, Than am dreamed ol In our philosophy. Ar. Y. Herald. The U. S. Minister to Hatti. The Derby 2'rantcript gives the following notice of Mr. Hassett, the newly ap pointed colored Minister to Hayti. It appears that by patient, persevering effort, he has worked his way up like any other poor boy, and now he is hon orably treated by the United States Gov ernment, like . any other deserving man. All honor to a President who thus re gards merit, not race: "Among the list of foreign appoint ments, wo notice that of Mr. E. D. Has sett, Minister to Hayti. This is a Derby boy, and will suggest reminiscences to many. Under the favorable auspices of Dr. Heardsley iu whose office he studied awhile and others, he was taken, os a poor yet most worthy boy, helped from step to step, until he has, as we see, made a man of himself. He is mostly a sell-made scholar, having acquired a good knowledge of five different languages, wields a vigorous pen, and while in Derby was often stimulated in his aspi rations by beiiig told thnt he would some day bo 'Governor of Liberia.'

Hum noi.PT, who witnessed several earthquakes, ssid that no one ever gets used to them, but, on the contrary, Ids feelings of dread arc intensified at each successive one which he experiences. All beasts nnd brids partake of man's fear, and seem panic-stricken. Ilnni btldt accounts for msu's inability to be come accustomed to, and consequently not t dread earthquakes, by saying that, whatever we have t any time or under any circumstances considered sha ky, the earth has always stood firm, and, when we find that tossing beneath our feet, it seems as though the very bottom ot things had been knocked out.

Once a week is often enough for a de cent man to wash himself all over, and whether in mmmcr or winter thnt ought to be done, with soap, warm water and a hog's hair brush, in a room showing at least seventy da-green Fahrenheit. If a man is pig in his nature, then no amount of washing will keep hirn clean, inside or out. Snch a one nrer s lath every time ne turns round. Jle cannot do any thing neatlv.

No man or woman should take a bath at the close of the dav, unless by the advice of the family physician. Many a man in attempting to cheat his doctor out of a fee, has cheated himself out of his life; it is done every day. The safest mode of a cold bath is a plunge into a river; the safest lime is im mediately after getting up. The neces sary effort ot swimming to shore com pels a reaction and the effect is delight ful. The best, safest, cheapest nnd most nnivcrsally accessible mode of keeping the surface ot the body clean, besides the once a week washing with soap, warm water and hog's hair brush, is as follows : As soon ns you get out of led in the morning wash your face, hands, neck and breast ; then into the same basin of water put both feet at once for alout a minute, rubbing them briskly all the time, then with the towel, which has been dampened by wiping tho face, feet, etc, wipe the whole body well, list and bard, mouth shut, brent projecting. Let tbe whole thing be done within five minutes. At night, when you go to bed, and when ever you get out of bed during the night, or when you find yourself wakeful or restless, spend from two to five min utes in rubbing the whole body, with your hands, as far as you can reach, in every direction. This has a tendency to preserve that softness and nobility of skin so essential to health and which too frequent washing always destroys. a Hall's Journal of Health. Tite Exvf.lope Bi'sixess. Few per sons arc aware of the various results which have been consequent upon the introduction into extensive use ot letter envelopes. Tons of paper and barrels of mucilage are used every month in the manufacture of different kinds of envel opes. In New York four firms are ex tensively engaged in the business, and many others do something at in a small way. The number of envelopes turned out weekly is not far from four millions. The gum used is a preparation of starch called dextrine, the value of which for sealing and stiffening purposes was acci dentally discovered in England some time since. During the conflagration of a large flour warehouse, a cotton spinner worked at carrying water and rolling out the partially charred flour. In the morning he found his clothes irremed iably stiffened and glued together. On investigation, he ascertained that tho scorched flour wonld form, with wa ter, a glutinous matter much more adhe sive than any known gum. Subsequent experiments revealfd the fact that this preparation was belter than gnm arabic for stiffening cotton goods, and the dis coverer kept his secret ar.d made money out ot the mauufctnre of "Hritish gum for cotten dresses. Hut his success was his ruin ; he became a profligate, his se cret vas discovered, aud dextrine came into notice. It is now used for all pur noses where a cheap mucilage is required. For dressing cotton goods, lor preparing the backs of postage stamps, the edges of envelopes, manufacturers' labels, tic, it is found to be unrivaled. It has nearly ruined the gum arabic trade, as well as that in sealiii wax and wafers. it A Pithy Sermon to Youso Mf.x. You are the architects ot your own for tunes.

If there be any ono whose beauty fades as a flower, and whose grace needs tho sustenance of the ineffable; if there be one whose power is in beauty, iu purity, goodness, it is a woman. If there be any one more than another npon whom blight falls more rudely ; it there be any one more than another who is more burdened with grief, or more wrung with sorrow, it ia a woman that is not a Christian.

Nearly every pleasant day pedestrian on our principal avenues pass a dark eyed brunette, of medium size, a plnmp figure, and richly dressed. Iu the early upring of 1K81 Sue Kiteradge, a lovely Kirl, just returned from boarding-school, lived upon her father's plantation in one of the rural districts of Kentncky, that hung in the balance, nncertain whether to risk her fate with the new "Confede racy" or hang back. Sue was seventeen, frequent visitor at the adjoining plan tation of Mr. Mundy, an old geotleman whose wife and son, a young man, com posed a happy family. One day a company of Union cavalry rode down npon the place, plundered the premises, carried off the valuables, burn ed the residence, nnd finally slaughtered the parents who were defending their own fireside, laying waste tho country in their track, and leaving yonng Mun day and Sue orphans indeed. Young Mundy was at last nronsed, and while being carried off a prisoner no word es caped his lips but "Sue." When asked his name, he repeated "Sue" probably the effects of a disordered brain. His linen beiii!' examined, the indelible name of "Mundy" was found, and ever after he was know n a a "Sue JInndy," tho con stant terror of Union citizens and sol diers in that section. After being released on parole, he im mediately returned and interred the charred remains of his own parents, as well as the body of Mr. K. Taking solemn and fearful oath of vengeance, and accompanied by Sue, who was now without home or friends in this wida world.bestarted foe a neighboringcampof bushwhackers or guerillas, where he was received with open arms, and was soon promoted to the office of commander of tho force, while Sue, disguised and pass-, ing by the name of "Kit" an abbrevhv. tion of Kiteradge proved invaluablu o spy, a fearless rider, and of undoubted bravery. Kit, after serving nearly two. vears as spy and general planner fee; tie band, fonnd her health failing.

This position she hA dbi"ng her duty like a man, until the WtHtte of Atlanta. July 12, 1864, in which. Pat. Claiborne, was killed. Retnrnit t ker youthful hero and his band, she again, reveled ia the carnival of blood, and though, her evil spirit was willing, the fieak vw weak, and ivit was apaia transferred to duty at Andersonville. Prisoners who. have shared the hospitality ot that cele brated camp will, perhaps, remember a short, stout, and ui oscular young Lieu-- tenant, wun aasning otack evssk a tace smooth as a maiden's, and cruef as a fiend incarnate. This was Sue Kiteradge. the amiable yonng boarding-school miss, tho cheerful companion, the once wealthy netress, me Deauutui maiden and linn friend of yonng Muudy, whose life to her was dearer than 'her own. " Sne Mundy and a part ot his band was cap tured and tried by a court-martial. Kit was present during the whole trial, and used her greatest influence, but of do avail. Sue Mundy was convicted and hung nt Louisville, Kentucky, in March, 18G5. The flowinjr hair still hung abont his shoulders, aril when his youthful corpse was taken down nnd laid away ia Us narrow bed, the bleeding and broken heart of Suo Kiteradge was buried with ; and now, a wanderer ou the face ot the earth, homeless and friendless, she lives without hope of heaven or mercy, forsaken and dishonored, and cast away forever.

Sebastian Uuffer, a shoemaker at Hannibal, Missouri, lately had au attack of insanity, during which he became pos sessed ot the idea that Satan was in his dog, and it would be a righteous act to kill the brute. After he had dispatched the dog, he concluded that the incarna tion ot evil had taken possession of his eight years old daughter, and, calling her to him, he seized bcr, placed a strap around her neck, threw her to the floor, placed his foot on her bead, and, taking knife, cut out her heart and swallowed the coagulated blood.
