SYMPATHY. of .t>0 UY MAltiOS II. IIAXÜ. Ilidc not thy secret grief In the dark chambers of the soul, Where sombre thoughts and fancies roll, Bringing thee no relief. Gloomy and cold the spirit grows, While Irroodipg over fancied wôes; The liehest care, while yet concealed, l.iee like a mountain on the breast ; The heaviest grief, when once revealed, Is lulled by sympathy to rest. Relieve thy bursting heart, And pour into some loving ear Each bitter thought, each chilling fear; llow soon will all depart ! And the words of love, like healing balm, Will gently soothe and sweetly calm, Till reason's almost fading ray Resumes its firm and wanted sway, And though thy burden be less, Thou wilt not still be comfortless. Hast thou human friend, To whom iu hours like these to turn When thine o'er burdened soul will yearn Its bitterness to end ? Oil. still despair not—there is One To whom sad hearts have often gone— Though rich the gilts for which they pray, None ever e: unblest Then, though all earthly ties be riven, Smile, for thou hast a friend in heaven. ay ; (Dur (Dlia. A Monkey Teacher. Twenty-five years ago we heard the sub joined storv, which we find in the October number of Arthur's Magazine, told in the idd Washingtonian Temperance Hall, Baltimore. The scene of the occurrence was laid in Anne Arundel county, and it was told as a fact. The moral of it, is— that the brnte is more rational than man, in so far as intoxicating liquor is con cerned. Tlie monkey, having been made acquainted with the nature of intoxicating liquor, hy sad experience, could not bo in duced to partake of it a second time. He did not think that "the hair of the dog was good for the bite." In my drinking days I had a friend who had a monkey, which lie valued at a high price, We always took him out on our chestnut parties. He shook all onr chest nuts fur us, and when he could uot shake them off, he would go to the very end of the limb, and knock them off with his fist. One day we stopped at a tavern and drank freely. About half a glass of whiskey was left, and Jack took the glass and drank its contents, the effects of which soon brought him into full operation—skipping, hopping and dancing most entertainingly. Jack was drunk. Being six in number, it was agreed that we should come to the tavern »nsxt day and get Jack drunk again, and have sport all day. 1 called in the morning at my friend's house, who went after Jack. But, instead of being as usual on his box, he was not to he seen. We looked inside, and there he was, crouched up in a heap. "Come out here," said his master. Jack came out on three legs, applying his fore-paw to his head. Jack had the headache. He felt as 1 felt muny a morning. He was sick, and.couldn't go. So we put it off three days. We then met, and, while drinking, a glass was provided for Jack. But where was he? Skulking behind the chairs. " Come here, Jack," said his master, "and drink," holding u glass oui to him. Jack retreated, and as the door opened, he slipped out, and in a moment the top of the house. IIis master went and called him down. He, however, refused to obey. My friend got a cowskin and shook it at him, which the monkey disregarded, and con tinued on the ridge-pole, still obstinately disobedient. His master got a gun, and pointed it at him, hut unfucecssfully. Jack slipped over to the hack of the building. l!c then got two guns, and had one point ed on each side of the house, when the monkey, seeing his had case, whipped up /))i the chimney, and got down iu one of iTie flues, and held on hy his fore-paws. My friend kept that monkey, twelve years .afterward, hut could never prevail on him U> taste another drop of whiskey. was on Cremation In .Tnpnu. The burning of the «lead is largely prac ticed among the Japanese, and of the thirty five different forms of worship prac ticed here, all equally false, but two de mand burial in preference to incremation. My acquaintance with their mode of bury ing the dead is limited to two funerals, which casually came before my notice. On one occasion 1 was returning from a walk, and my path led bosido one of the little cemeteries near Kobi, in which a small party Jiourof sunset, of tender sorrow. was gathered. It was the fitting time fur au event The mourners were dressed entirely in white, which contras ted with the gaudy robes of a small group of priests. The eurpse, in its enclosure, lay upon a bier, and offerings of green rice and flowers were made as though to the malien of the dead. Then came the beating of bells and the clang of cymbals. T'lio receptacle which contained the corpse was shaped like a half-barrel, and in this the dead was placed in a sitting posture, pi>d all vacant places were filled with IwscfJjlos. com Thu founds now' «11 gathered round it #ud commenced g. low, plaintive elmnt, »uouo onou» that itnocmcd merely the rep etition of a name, which 1 suppoaed to have been that of one of their deities. They then separated, und only a few remained to attend to the final service. The 80 recep tacle, or cnflBu, was placed pvar a atone trough and covered with fuel. ,Y11 gath ered iu a clone circle aud the nearest of kin (in this instanec a wife) applied the torch, and as the flames ascended tho monotonous chant and the sound uf cymbals wero newed in mournful concert, grief was decently restrained, ejteopt in tho case of u little boy of about ten yenrs, who wept piteously, and w#s taàcp aside to be' comforted. The group broke, and ^ÿie after the other depurted, leaving the '»vile above referred to alone, the image of .sorrow, and apparently unable to tear her self from the ashes of bei husband.
