It presents the Christian stand ard "God all, and in all :V . ' . ; ' ; ! ; A zealoU3 divine, ,"vvho had prayed earnestly that God. would" teach him tho perfect way of truth, was directed, in a dream, to go to a certain place, where he would find an instructor. . .When ho came to the place he found a man in ordinary attire, to whom he wished a good morn- msr. "I never. had a bad morning," replied the man.. -' 'That is very singular : I wish you may always be so fortunate." 'I was never unfortunate," said "he. ' 'I hope you will always be as happ3" said the divine.. " .. ; ; : ' .. 'I am never unhappy," said the other. 'V'I wish," said the divine, 'lhat you would explains yourself a little.". "That I will cheerfully do," said he. "I said that I never had a bad morning-"; for every morning, even if am pinched with hunger I praise God. If it rains, or snows, or hails, , . whether the weather is serene or tempestuous', I am still thank ful to. God, and, therefore, ! never have a joyless morning. .If I am miserable in outward circumstances, and despised, I still praise God. You wish that I might always be fortunate ; but I can not be un fortunate, because nothing befalls rne but according to the will of God ; and I be lieve that His will is always good, in whatever He does, or permits to be done. You wished me always happy ; but I can not be unhappy, because my will is always resigned to the willbf God."" "But what if God 'should' thrust' you down to hell?" "I have. two arms faith, and love with which I would , hold on to my God and Savior, and not let Him go; and I would rather be in hell with God, than in heaven without him," The divine, astonished at the man's answers, asked him whence he came. . '"I came from God," he replied. "Where did you find God ?" ; "Where I left the world." "Where did you leave Him?" "JWith thepure in heart." "What are you ?V ;' " ;;!' . "I am a king." , "Where is yotir kingdom ?" . "It is within. my own boscm, 'I have learnt to. rule my appetites and passions ; and that is better than to rule any king dom in the world." .'. ' . "How were you brought into this happy condition?" "By secret prayer, spiritual meditation, and union with God. Nothing below God cevdi satisfy ny desiresJ: -I have found Him, and in Him I have peace and rest." - . The Louisville Journal say3 that ''dull times are the very best for advertisers. The little that is going on they get, and whilst ethers are grumbling, they pay their way; and with their newspapers for a life preserver they swim, on the water while others are sinking around them.' John -Wesley says: "When I was youn?, ' I was sure of every thing; ia a few years, having been mistaken a thou sand times, I wa3 not half so sure of the most things as I was before ; at present I am hardly sure of any thing but what God has revealed to man." .. - : of Henry -Clay. 'By tho lined letter from the Rev. E6v.ird F. E,'rkiey, Rector of St. George's Church, who was for many years Mr. Chy's Paster, at Lexington, Ky., and holding the most intimate relations, with him, v;e hare the settlement cf an: inte resting historical fact: St. Louis, May 11, 1S59. W. A. Bell, Esl Dear Sr: Your letter cf the 4th inst., making inquiry as to the mode, in which the Hon. Henry' Clay was baptized by me, was July re ceived, and I seize the first lefcurs moment to send you an answer, - ' J Mr. Clay was baptized in his parlor 9 at Ashland, on the 2Cd of June, 1517, in cur usual way. by pouring a handful cf icaler m his head, in the name of 'the Holy Trinity ; one of his daughters-in-law and four of hi? granddaughters being baptized at the same time, and in the same way. . . Mr. Clay knew that the baptismal ser vice of the Protestant Episcopal Church athorized imuernon, whenever it was de siret and he knevathat I occasioially ad ministered the right in that way, tut in all our conversations on the subject of religion and of baptism, he never' once alluded to immersion or made a 'single remark about it. ' - ;, ; j You received the impression that: he was baptized by immersion, 'doubtles, from the fact that a day or two after litis oc currence, a Louisville paper (and I think it was the paper published under tte auspices-cf the Baptist Church) announced that Mr. Clay had been baptized in .one of the beautiful ponds 'of Ashland.5' This statement :va3 -wholly gratuit;u;'j and without the least foundation. ' : It may be proper for me, in thus connec tion, to say that the reason of his receiv ing this holy ordinance at home, was, that my congregation at the time were building a new church. edifice, and we had no fitter place for the "performance cf these tiered rites." ; I have answered your kind note in a hurry, but you can maky. what usa ycu please of it. . -1 am very truly yours, he, EDWARD F. BERKLEY. TIig BIsliop cf London Preaching In an G mail) ns-yard. A remarkable gathering of . the men connected with the "favorite" omnibuses assembled on Sunday .evening, says the London Watchman of April 6, in a carriage-shed at the depot in Upper-street, Islington. The largest building ' in the yard, specially prepared for the purpose, was crowded to excess by a most attentive audience. During the last four years a religious service has been conducted on everv Sunday morning for tho benefit cf these men by a clergyman residing m the parish." At eight o'clock on' Sunday night, the Bishop of ; London read, ma clear and emphatic manner, the sixth chapter of St. John, and .then preached half an .hour from the 14th verse. The sermon was admirably adapted to the occasion, and was listened to with breathless attention. The truth was never more forcibly ex pressed than in the following lines: If. there is a man who may eat hi3 bread Et nfare with God and man. it is that man who has brought that bread out of the earth by his own honest industry. It is cankered by no fraud, it is wet by no tear, it is stained by no blood. - The Ideal Woman. The true woman, for whose ambition a husband's love and her children's adora tion are sufficient, who applies her mili tary instincts to the discipline of her household, and whose legislatives exercise themselves in making laws for her nurse, whose intellect b.33 field enough for com munion with her husband, and whose heart asks no other honors than hi3 love and adoration, a woman who doe3 not think it a weakness to attend to her toilet, and who does net disdain to be beautiful; who believes in the virtue cf glossy Lair and well-fitting gowns, and who eschews rents and 'traveled edges, slipshod t.hoes and audacious makeups, a woman who speaks low, and does not speak much,, who is patient and gentle, and intellectual and industrious, who loves more than she reasons, and yet does not love - blindly, who never scolds and never argues, but adjusts with a smile, such a weman is the wife we have all dreamed of once in our lives, and is the mother we still worship in the backward distance cf the past.

A lady correspondence of the Buffalo Express, "advising cn the subject of wear ing hoops and lifting up dresses, says : "'The hoops should be. near together, say two cr three inches apart, and come to within as many inches of the feet or the bottom ' of the dress. In going up stairs you need only lift the front of your dress, and: in descending, the back pin of your skirts. The front part cf your dress can 'by no effort be soiled in de scending, neither can the back part by ascending a pair cf stairs.

Her cries brought a gallant wid ower to the rescue, who saw to his hcrrcr, a billy goat, that evidently had a horn too much, doing hi3 best to put an end to the poor woman's misery. The widower tried to scare the goat away, but he wouldn't be sacred. He tried to help the lady up, when, lid! came the head of the goat against Tnmself, and two buis together came, for the goat gave Lim another ; and down he fell, crosswise the lady, to the serious damage cf a doz?n fresh eggs. "J2?" cried the lady; "get eff me ycu villain," said the injured female. "But my good woman" and but went the goat, and the rough horn of the animal spoilt an eight dollar pair of pants, in the worst rjace they could be spoiled? "Help" cried the woman, "my eggs!' "Oh my pants" cried the man. "But never mind the pants get up," cried the lady, and jus: as he wa3 trying so to do, but came the gcat, and down caiuu the man again. The cries cf the two victims brought quite a crowd to th-3 spot, where there lay the woman, and there lay the man "twin misery's pregnant with danger," and there advancing and retreating, battering llrst one and then th 3 ether, oscillated the confounded goat. The last but L3 made, one cf his horns caught hi the basket, and he left the scene cf action,, with the tasket hanging over cne eye, and the yolk cf three cr four eggs, dri.zling down over hio magnificent beard. The man backed cut, till beyond the reach of the lady's eyes, when he turned and ran like a quar ter horse, swearing at all goats in gene ral, and this one in paiticular, while the lady sat down, and with a piece cf shingle and a few pins, cleaned and repaired the badly damaged dress.
