When the sun sinks to rest
On his couch in the West,
And the moon bathes the earth in her beams;
When the stars twinkle bright
On the bosom of night,
When theangelsare whispcringinourdreams.
Oh! Angels! sweet Angels! from .that happy
Ye tell us of the love
And the hnrmony above,
Where we'll never know a sigh or a tear.
In the tempest and strife
Of the buttle of life,
When the spirit is shorn of its might;
They hover by our side,
In our visions they glide,
And nerve us anew for the fight.
On! Angels! sweet Angels! guard us in the
The spirit grows frail,
And its light flickers pale.
In the gloom and the darkness of life !
Ah! sad is this earth
From the hour of our birth,
And" heavy ere the burdens we bear;
But oh! there's a balm
Our troubled souls to calm,
Fuwc know that the Angels are near!
Oh! Angels! sweet Angels! ye tell of a clime
Where skies never gloom,
-But the flowers always bloom
In the long sweet summer time !
Like the airy plumed dove,
God's own type of love,
Oh! had we the pinions to fly I
But our souls yet remain
In their cold earthly chain,
And we sigh for the freedom of thesky!
Oh! Angels! sweet Angels! when will ye come!
We are fainting for breath
In the shadow of Death
Oh! guide us poor wand'rers home!

In Virginia, the other day. a Judge, in

informed the gentlemen, that as for in

Turning Over a New Leaf.
"Well," yawned Mr. Grey, as the clock
struck six the last Sunday in the year.
"I suppose its time to get up but some

"Well, get up. then, if you want to. I
do wish I could take a little comfort. Get

the door, "but it's anything but comfort

For more than half an hour did Mrs.
Grey continue in bed, striving in vain by
the indulgence of "a little more sleep and
a little more slumber," to still the quarrel
between habit and conscience. Longer
would she have tarried, but for a crash
in the children's room and a medley of
reproaches, sobs and lamentations.
"What for mercy's sake have they done
now?" exclaimed she, as hurriedly put
ting on her clothes she ran to the spot
whence issued the tumult. "I don't be
lieve there's another such a set of young
ones in the world. What have you been
about here," she said to the little ones,
four in number, who were looking pitiful
ly at the wreck of the Sunday's pastime.
The sight that greeted her was not cal
culated to compose her troubled mind, or
sooth her reproaching heart. The chil
dren accustomed to being up, dressed,
and having their breakfast before seven,
on the six days of the week, could not, in- i
deed knew not, how to remain quietty in
' their beds until near eight o'clock. In-
' deed, they always calculated on a good
j Sunday mornings, which good time meant
j sundry revolutions in the bed, not unlike
pranks of a young colt; wrapping up the
blankets to represent Indians and squaws;
rolling up quilts in mammoth babies, and
to conclude a game of ball, in which the
pillows flew right merrily. All had gone
i on as equal; till one "unfortunate" missed
the mark, and the ewer tumbled on the
I floor in ruins, its contents mingling with :
j shoes, stockings, rumpled sheets, and
, quilts, and giving new chills to the-little

indeed it was a golden age
Then in the vile contrast came up the
Sundays of the last two or three years,
and then spake conscience in a terrible
voice, and uttered the cause; and tears hot
and many rolled down her cheeks. The
only day of the week which her husband
could spend with his family was despoiled
comfort by herself; she was bringing her of
children up to dread and hate even the
day sacred to worship and home's purest
joy; she was learning herself to look up-
on it as a day of trial, a day of toil
and why? Because mostly of a "little
more sleep and a little more slumber."
No words passed between husband and
wife till they rose ta retire. Then taking
.her hand he said, half seriously, half jo-

And she did try! Let us see the result.

dentify the precise location. But, at all
hazards, he resolved to search for it in
person. He sold off bis trilling property,
discharged his little debts, and set for
ward on foot it was long before the age
of railroads with the firmness of one
inured to long" continued marches under
musket and knap-sack, followed by his
son and dog. No matter what emotions
thrilled his bosom at abandoning the

sociations which make up tho sum of
home, his features wore the aspect of
determined -resolution. Not so the son.
In that grove, and by the babbling brook,
he and his dog had gambolled through
many a verdant holiday. In that dear
old cabin, often had he beguiled the win
ter evening by listening to bis father's
legends -of the war, or put up his prayers
at his departed mother's knee. To all

til they reached the nearest branch of
the Allegheny, on which they embarked,
but poorly supplied with provisions for
the voyage, for long travel on the road

days of hardship and exposure on the
river, they made their little boat fast to a
tree that overhung the river side. The
mansion of a thriving plan tor lay in fuil
view before them, and thitherward they
directed their steps. Evening had al
ready cast its lengthened shadows over
the landscape, and a cold and comfort
less. November . night was fast settling
down upon them. Avoiding the main
entrance to the building, which was tight
ly closed, both door and window, the old
veteran knocked timidly at the kitchen, J
and asked the privilege of a shelter for
himself and child until morning. Tho

presided 'o'er the cups and tea,' said
'she always formed an idea of a person
