In the death of those we love, there Is that consola tion offered to the wounded spirit which ol ten soothes and lulls to rest Its tumults. Heaven is far blighter man eann; t aen wny moum tue loss ortrlends when we have the "u 1 assurance that tbey are at rest ? It Is true tbe grave looks dark to us, and there Is rea son In this. Earth's partings are sad. but. If we are faithful, we shall soon meet our lost ones In a world where the parting word la never spoken. Fi lends we part wltn here are tbe gainers; and while we weep over tbelr beloved remains welshoutd remember tbat their portion Is bliss. Oh! aesth Is not terrible if we are only prepared It is only the passage from this s nlul world to a better one, and If we are only ready when our Heavenly Father calls, our death will be a happy one Wbo would wish to remain forever In this world of pain aod trouble, when one of per fect bappl ness Is prepared for us ? Wbo would choose tbe society of earths when tbe blessed company of saints and angels await us In heaven. Then let us not mourn for our dear friends wbo bave been called to their true borne; It Is tbe will or Our Father In Heaven; question not bis right. Kequietcat in pact. Our Fathers have gone from death to life, From toll to lastlna rest; From sorrow and from ceaseless strife, To tbe pleasures of tne blest. Their earthly course 19 done. They died for Christ's dear sake; Tbe prize of Hfe, divine, they have won In the mansions of the blest. From earthly struggles they are free; ?ow nappy tuey xre in neaven; Martyrs of true charity, A crown to them la given. They trod tbe world beneath their feet, Forward to the dying pressed; Preparing others aealh to meet. And Bhare with them an eternal rest. Our Fathers now In Calvary rest; Soitly let tbe words be spoken, For tbe hearts that loved them best i Are aching now, and almost broken. Ob! weep ye willows, o'er then; Oh! flowers bow your heads; Weep tears for us In sorrow. our ratners now arc uead. Decembers, 1878. ' TILLIE."

The night bird had changed Its Joyous noiestoa melancholy reoulem for our early dead: amaranth and pale immortelle mingled tbelr fra grance ana nestled lovingly oenetn t icy toucu or those llitle waxen lingers. Borne upon an Incense of tears, the brigut spirit parsed from earth to heaven. In the long, weary yeais to come, how our yearning beans will watch and wait for our darling!

An angel voice whlsoers soft and low. be still sad heart, and cease thy anguished moan, for we anaii meet again m tne sweet bye aud bye.
