Literature loses one of its foremost men in the death at London on Saturday last of Thomas Carlyle, the veteran English histo rian.

His complete works, published in ’69— 71, comprise80 vols. besides three volumes of translations. --* ♦— J>r.

IIv attention ideas are registered in the j memory. Absence destroys trifling intimacies, lap it invigorates strong ones. First love is the purest, sweetest, bc-t:— «»«.! I, I.r..v.> if «n Patient endurance, not exemption, if the ; distinguishing prerogative of grace. The strongest, most deplorable evidence of our sinfulness is that we carry our sins so lightly. Expression is of more consequence than shape; it will light up features otherwise i heavy. The man who stops his paper to econo* I mi/.e is like one who goes barefoot to save I his shoes. It is always safe to learn, even from our | enemies—seldom sate to iustruct, even our j friends. Nature confesses that she bestowed upon man a most susceptible heart, in that she has granted tears. George Eliot said: “Ignorance is not so damnable as humbug: but when it prescribe* pills it may happen to do more barm.” The Italians have a proverb that while one devil may tempt the toiler, a thousand dog the drone. Patience and gentleness are potent and powerful, hut they cannot turn a mill-wheel nor break up a setting lien. The difference between perseverance and obstinaev is, that one often comes from a strong will, and the other from a strong j won’t. A great poet or painter has usually a life of suffering, for great thoughts and capabil ities born to the ideal and beautiful come only through pain. A few ideas of our own will save us from being too sensible to external impressions, as a light in our room makes lightning less blinding. There i< just aj much vindictiveness wrapped up in the " Oh shuck*!” of a wo man as there is in the well-developed and complicated anathema of a Texas cowboy. Victory comes through apparent defeat,1 jov through suffering, wealth by loss, and honor through shame. Stooping we rise, ( giving up we gain, and bcariiig n ero>« we find a crown. There is no sucli thing as posthumous ; chnritv. There may he equity, or propriety, in a last designation of earthly goods, hut j in real or intrinsic generosity of benevolence there is not. “ He who makes de most of what lie’s got am fittui InsKeli to enjoy better. oiiua-. shun hut w hat could bo made worse. Ebe- j iy dollar made hv honest work ought^ to bring two doilafs wurf of solid comfort. A lady in Detroit cut out her tongue w ith a razor the other day, stating that «!ie felt it to be her dutv to make some sacrifice to tit? j Lord. An ascetic old bachelor says this is , the sort of religion he likes to sec circulate around. To-dayV duty cari otily be done well to day. Time and circumstances are now fa vorable, and we are in the best condition to perform it. To-morrow all will be changed; ( other exigencies will arise, other objects will claim our attention, and our capacity for performing that special duty will be sensi bly diminished; The slightest thing wo do sends a thrill vibrating along the endless chain of cause arid effect to the utmost limit of time, thro the wholegrand machine of future existence. Man dies, hut not one nf his acts ever dies. Each is perpetuated and prolonged forever bv interminable results, affecting some be ing in even- age to come. The Alexandria GmrtU says: One day la-t week. Mr. R. H. Iax>, and Miss Hattie Triplett, both of Prince William county, Ya., came to this city, and were married at the parsonage of the First Baptist Church, by Rev. W. S. Penick. After*the ceremony, the happy couple left for Washington, where they spent the day in sight seeing, returning to Alexandria late in the evening, when the bride having been previously received into the church, was baptized by the minister who officiated at her marriage in the morn ing. “This was a moat unusual scene,” says a correspondent, "from the tact that it was a double union—the one with mam, the the other with Christ.” Amber was intermingled with the myths and religion of the Greeks, their legends ascribing its origin to ]•••*• the sweet tears sired Uy fair Heliades—Apollo's daughters.
