ascending, till half a Biiure, clothed in From Colburn'i New Monthly. THE MIDDLE HOME CELESTIAL. , Few persons who can reflect on the hlv interesting and elevating subject of. :i probable " uses in the creation of the v; ,t myriads of heavenly bodies which we daring our hours, of darkness, sparkr litvx in the distant' firmament above, and which we know, by the calculations and discoveries 'of astronomers, to be spread ovr the illimitable universe, can entertain the narrow-minded, irratienal idea that all thine visible and invisible globes are mere routter, floating in space, unemployed and uninhabited, while our little planet alone , I:a been selected by the Almighty for the :.! u of intellectual beings. This idea is' the embodiment of self con ccit, vainglory, and presumption. For though wo are t Id in the Scriptures that ii. vnis made M lower than the angels,1' we ;i!v nowhere assured that no intellectual brings except man have ever been imbued w'h life ; and we have no warrant to pro tic unco that these vast luminaries were ta' led into existence for no other purpose thn to throw a tide of useless splendor nv r the solitudes of immensity." Such is not, and has not been, the bpin of the greatest, the wisest, and the best. M ny Christian philosophers and astrono mers, as well as learned divines, have de clared their belief in the theory of the sun, in on, and star? being, each and all, inhab ited worlds, or in preparation to receive in habitants. Faith," saf 8 one of these phil osophers, whose grasp of mind may well ' cl 'im influence even for his speculations o i this loftv theme " faith associates "with i.1 e bright abodes the fortunes of immor tal :ind regenerated man. It places there tho loved and tne lost; it ioiiows tnem in- t ) celestial bowers:" and genius brings the charm of poetry to shed a halo of- beauty around the mystic scenes which im- ruination fails to portray : - There is a place where spirits come, Beneath the shrine tcrlive. A mystic place, a middle home, Which God to them doth give. . What mortal fancy can disclost The secret of their weird repose ? It is a quietness more deep Than deadest swoon, or deepest sleep, A slumber full of glorious dreams, Of magic sound, and broken gleams, . Outside the walls of Heaven." Science, in thejoftiest stretch, can not traverse the "trackless facancy" which U's beyond our earth, intervening between it and "the distant orbs which illumine. the v st vault of heaven ; yet fancy, when un ntrollcd by sober reason, will sometimes dare to wing its flight to them. Who ' knows, when its material frame is sunk in that which we call sleep, whether the j.irit wanders or Dot, and how, and where? Knchanting music has been heard, x and Kautiful objects have been seen in dreams ; and it is a vision" of strange scenes obtain ed during a trance, consequent on extresoe illness and dcbilitv, that we are about to i elate. A lady, still youthful, though not a mere irl, who was fond of star-gazing, .without having the least pretensions to astronomi ?M knowledge, and who was enabled to indulge her taste, as she lived in a tropical climate, where the clearness of the atmos phere and the beauty of nights are favora ble to star-gazing, was once seized with a dangerous illness. The fever and head ache baffled all the usual remedies ; mus tard plasters, blisters, cupping, were all re- forted to in vain, and the poor young wo man lay apparently insensible. But though none suspected it, she heard all that was said even in the lowest whisper around her, atvl what she did hear was not very conso le, jry. The physicians pronounced that lb-.; re was scarcely a shadow of hope, that hi-.1 was all but extinct, and that if the com p. ing draught, which they were going to administer, did not induce some quiet A ep, she would never see tbc light of an other day. A window, looking out on a lovely little garden, was thrown wide n, and the invalid's couch was moved h' -ost close to it, that ' the cool evening . !" eze might play upon her burning brow, 'li e medical men and most of the friends ' yr the apartment, and only the sick-nurse hi 1 one near relative. remained to watch tit ough .that night of -anxiety, but they j.1 -ccd themselves so as riot to be seen by lu and the little night-lamp was hidden be und a green screen. The invalid tried to close her eyes but c aid not ; they remained fixed upon a yt ung mahagua tree near the window, the Oi inches of which, laden with those beau-tv-iT flowers that a pale yellow in the nK.ming,taking a bright amber tint at noon-Is.-, and becoming a rich brown color to wards tbc efening-were swaying in the. br icze. As she half-unconsciously gazed it this tree, she became sensible that a fcure was gradually intervening between lifr and it. At first, the eclipsing figure sc med a mere shadow J but it assumed nre and more of form, and she perceived, to her terror,-the head and face of an old , lo .king man, wrapped, as it were, in a dark cloud. The head was like a discolored V sk j11, and yet some scanty gray hair stream from it The withered features were ;Ui n, the yes were cold and passionless . ? keen and commanding, while the wrin- h!cd mouth, without uttering , a sound, i. wly formed the single word "Come 1" 'tis Deathterrific' Death 1" gasped "he poor snfterer, as she shrank from the iUoleton fingers that .seemed advancing to . izc her in their grasp. At that moment t e .observed ;t light breaking above the " " "r of the dreadful figure, and a beauti v! face, with the smile of a cherub, slowly a robe of radiance, was visible above the gloomy form of death. Gracefully it ex tended a band that seemed almost trans parent, and gently beckoned to the invalid. She felt fainter and fainter, bit had yet power to collect her thoughts, and raising her wasted, hands, she prayed for mercy and forgiveness at the Throne of Grace. Some lines of a bvran which she had learned when a child came to her memory, and she sighed with the deepest earnest ness, though in. a voice which would have been inaudible to mortal ears : I come, I come, at thy command , I give my spirit to thy hand ; Not in mine innocence I trust, I bow before thee in the dust, . . . But through my Saviour's blood alone, I look for mercy at thy throne 1 Her heart ceased to beat, her dim eyes elbsed ; she heard, she saw, she felt noth ing more ! How long she may have re mained in this state she knew not, but we will let her tell the rest herself. "After a time I seemed to feel a gentle breeze playing around me, but I saw no thing all was dark as the grave. Pres ently 1 experienced a strange sensation, as if 1 were walking, yet treading upon noth ing. 1 appeared to '- be gently ascending somewhere; all was stillness around. At length I perceived a faint silvery light as ii snining through a gauze vail ; it became clearer and clearer, until, as it were, blin ded by its brilliancy; I felt compelled to close my eyes. 1 then seemed, by some unaccountable compulsion, to stand still; a soft wind seemed to fan my cheeks, and, opening my eyes again, I was amazed at the view that, met them. I stood on a sort of platform of verdure, studded with innumerable flowers, of shapes and colors which 1 had never seen before. In frost of me were groups of unknown trees, whose gently waging branches sparkled like dia-' monds, rubies, and emeralds, and whence low, sweet music issued; above me was a kind of rosy canopy of clouds. All -was full of calm, delicious repose. ' Where am I ? burst involuntarily from my lips, and my voice seemed strange to myself. In less tnan a moment I fancied that I heard an echo -from the wenderful grove, on the outskirts of which I was standing, without seeming to crush the most minute flowret beneath my feet. I looked keenly into the depths of the grove, and, after a short space, a figure seemed to Teveal itself to me. At first it was dim and uncertain, but gradually it became more defined, and I saw that it was ap proaching me. The form seemed wrapped in a vail, the hues of which were like the fading tints of the rainbow, but the fea tures were not concealed, and I felt that I had seen them before. Could it be yes, it was it was one over whose grave I had wept the loved, the lost, the mourned ! the brother whose death had been my greatest earthly grief ! " I stretched out my arms in silence for a second, and then, as he met my gaze with looks of angelic sweetness and love, I murmured : "Bui you died! ' - " Yes I died yonder; but I live again here,' he replied. " And I how came I here V " You were translated to this abode when your spirit had cast off its earth born garb "But the indgmentseat the awful judgment-seat of God ! Oh, when shall I be called to appear there ? " In his good time,' replied the spirit.' But fear not sister, of another world ; the tenance.

Our part" is to have faith in the boundless goodness of him who crea tqdall.' 'The light was becoming less dazzling, and ray eyes could better penetrate the strange sort of atmosphere around me. I followed my beloved guidp, and wo entered the enchanting grove. I fancied tha. in the musical rustling of the resplendent leaves I heard a sound like Welcome, welcome!' while at a little distance I heard a strain of delightful music, that seemed by turns to swell and to die away. Fig ures now seemed to be floating about, hither and thither, amidst the leafy glades that I began to discover through arches formed by the radiant' wreaths of flowers that seemed gracefully to wander from one magnificent tree to another. I remarked that every thing seemed lo glitter as I came nearer; yet there was no glare to hurt even my unaccustomed eve. Noth ing that I beheld appertained to gloom or . darkness ; a kind of subdued brightness appeared to, be the characteristic "of all around. u4And death?' I asked. 4 Is death known here!' . 44 4 Those who have been allowed to en ter, this bright sphere have done with death. It can only destroy the garb of flesh with which the immortal spirit is cloth ed in yonder world,whence you have just es caped, and in other worlds, over which sin and darkness also brood. Here, we are purified and prepared for the holy realms where the great Creator reveals his glory, to the accepted spirits who are. permitted to join the angelic hosts ju that everlast ing abode. But comef' he added, 4 let me lead you where you can rest awhile, and thus be prepared to take your place in yonder gorgeous temple, 44 not made with hands," where we meet to offer our united hymns of thanksgiving to him in whom we have our happy being.' . " He signed to me to follow him, and ray steps glided after his, without effort or trouble, until we reached what might be termed a grotto, close to a remarkablv beautiful cascade, whose transparent wa ters, leaping from one ledge of crystal, sol id as a rock, to another, like the rays from the setting sun, if these could be imagined in a liquid state. On either side of the waterfall grew large bell-shaped flowers of rich colors, which as they waved their lovely petals over the glancing water, and occasionally dipped them sportively in it, shed a charming fragrance around. 44 The materials of which the grotto was composed looked lik sapphires and bur-; nished gold ; in the interior there floated around a sort of pale blue haze, which, like a film, partially obscured the splendor of. the recess. Before entering it I beheld what seemed a cupola in form, but envel oped, as it were, in clouds of crimson and gold. I pointed to Jt. 44 4 That is the dome of the temple,' said my guide. 4 It is hallowed by the pres ence of the Omnipotent when we meet to worship him, though that holy presence is invisible to us. When you hear a solemn chanj commence, and music swelling from all these-waving branches around, then, sister of another. world, come gladly forth!' 4 He was gone, and, lett alone, I sank down in a reclinine- attitude nnon thp on last words that yowbreathed on earth, and ameled around, and soon a feelino- of rlo- tney were leit in your neart, were to pray licious repose stole over me.

Millie attended the diatiiet school, and besides learning her Iessuns, assisted her mother in doing the housework and taking charge of the children. The neighbors said that Millie Brown had a talisman, and it was that which kept the pleasant smile on her face, and the sweet tone in her voice.. Vhy, mamma, how pale you look, said Millie one day as she came tripping home from school, 4 are you sick ?' 4 i am tired outj' replied her mother, sadly. 4 I am almost discouraged; how we- are to get aloog this winter I know not ; every thing is so dear, aud our prospects so poor. 4 Why, mother,' said Millie, you should not feel so. I am getting aloug nicely at school, and shall soon be fitted for a teach- er, and thei 1 will support and educate the boys. And you know, main ma,' nd Mil lie's voice became serious, 4our Saviour said, 'Take no thought what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, or wherewithal ye shall be clothed, for your heavenly Frther knoweth ye have need ot all these things ; and know, mamma, he will take care of us k You are right, Millie,' said Mrs. Brown, looking affectionately on her daughter. 4I am too .easily discouraged. God has indeed blessed me in my children, and while they are spared I will not repine.' Millie knew the secret of true comfort, for she drew it from the word of God. Millie was a favorite with her school mates. 4 I am really sorry I was so unkind to Millie Brown, yesterday, said Clara Lee at recess. 4 You know I missed in one-o my lessons, and she got above uae in the class : and I was so vexed that 1 said, if I was as poor as she was, and couldn't afford to wear a better dress than hers, I would stay at home and help my mother sew. -Millie did not say a word, but the tears came into her eyes, and she weot to her seat and took out a little black book ftora her pocket, and began reading- I should not have cared half so much about it had she not said 1 Good morning,' to me so pleas antly to-day. But here she comes; what j shall I say V . 4C.ara, said Millie, as she joined the i girls, 4 may I speik with you a minute ! j and putting her arm around Clara, drew her aside. 4 You can have your old place in the class again,' said Millie, our teach er said so.

Now we are friends again.' 4 I do not deserve your kindness,' replied Clara ; 4 how can you forgive me for being so cros3 to you V 4 I have not thought of it at all,' said Millie ; 4 1 knew you did not mean it 4 You are the best girl I know,' said Clara ; 4 1 wish I was half as good and forgiving as you are, Millie,' and Clara's voice was a little husky. 4 You must not talk so,' returned Millie, quickly, 4 1 have so many, many faults ;' and she whispered, 4 Be ye kind and tender v tai .A.
