= WORSHIP. BT S. TSAKLE WALLIS. 'TU not in anthems, that from builded fanes Go up, with smoke of incense—in the wail Of sorrow or repentance, nor the cry Of supplicating anguish—not in all The Nor That stirs the breathless spirit, on the Bhore Of the lone ocean, or when midnight stars .Slow swing their ceaseless censers, or the flowers And seasons lift our hearts to Him whose hand lias touched them with UU glory—not alone In these nor all of these, dwells or breathes The true, deep soul of worship ! Far between The God wtio made us and ourselves, there lie Eternal depths of distance. Sad and ill r, were there Divinity No nearer to us—were the Patriarch's dream Of steps of light, that linked the earth and sky, With angels gliding o'er them, but a cheat Of the fond brain of slumber I Nay, there is Diviuity about us, and our earth Hath, in some mortal shapes that tread it with us, CreaUires so full of Heaven, that prayer to them Cannot be all idolatry ! They fill The shrine—they wake the w orship, and it soars To where they stooped from. Uuto them w e bow The head, in rev'rcnce, as religion bends When holiest names are uttered. Round their souls The mists of frailty seem to have been flung, But that they might not be too bright to bless JThe upturned eyes of love, is but the robe of beauty, That blushes in the dawn, or crimsons o'er The sunset, or sends forth the flashing storm, Is but the earth-wove mantle, which the skies Wear for our joy and wonder. <2 prayers that living lips can syllable, in the throb of adoration mute, It were to To them, the clay as the cloud ©nr Oiio. How i Army of ülonkcy« Bi^dg "They arc coming, and will most likely cross tlie river by tho rocks yonder;" ob served Raoul. " How, swim it," I asked. " It is a torrent there ?" " Oh, no, eda Stream. answered Raoul; " moq keys would rather go into fire than water If they cannot leap tho stream they will bridge it." 44 Bridge it! and how?" "Stop a moment, captain, and you shall sec." The half-human voices now sounded nearer, and we could perceive that the animals were approaching the spot where we lay. Presently, they appeared upon the opposite bank, headed by an oid gray-headed chieftain, and officered like many soldiers. They stated, of the camadrrja . or ring-tailed tribe. so were, as Raoul Ouo—an aid do camp, or chief pioneer, perhaps—ran out upon a projecting rock, and after looking across the stream, as if calculating the distance, scampered hack and appeared to communicate with the leader. This produced a movement in the troop. Commands were issued, fatigue artics were detailed and marched to the font. Meanwhile several of tho drejas —engineers, no douht—ran along the bank, examining the trees on both sides. l I I ,■ At length they all collected around tall cottonwood that grew over the nar rowest part of the stream, and 20 or 30 of them scampered up its trunk. On reaching a high point, the foremost—a strong fellow—ran out upon a limb and taking several turns around it, slipped off and hung head downard. The next on the limb, also a stout one, climbed down the body of the first anil whipping his tail tightly around the neck and forearm of the latter, dropped off in his turn, and hung head down. The third repeated his manœuvre upon the second, and tho fourth upon tho third, and so on, until the last one upon the string rested his fore-paws upon the ground. The living chain now commenced swin ging backward and forward like the dulum of a clock. pen The motion was slight at first, but gradually increased, the low ermost striking his hands violently on the earth as he passed the tangent of the os cillating curve. Several others upon the limb aided the movement. This continued uutil the monkey at the end of the chaq was thrown among the branches of a tree on the opposite bank. Here, after two or three vibrations, he clutched a limb and held fast, ment was exocuted adroitly, just at tho culminating point of the oscillation, in order to save the intermediate links from the violence of a too sudden jerk ! The chain was now fast at both ends formin a complete suspension bridge over whie the whole troop to the number of four five hundred passed with the rapidity of thought. It was one of the most comical sights I ever beheld, to witness the quizzical Ï iressiou of the countenances along that iving chain ! Tho troop was now on tlie other side, bat how wore the animals forming the bridge td get themselves over? This question which suggested itself.— Manifestly by number ouc letting go his tail.. ■ But tljen the point d'appui on the othér side was much lower down, and number one, with half a dozen of his neighbors, would bo dashed against the opposite hank or soused into the water." Here, then, was a problem, and waited with some curiosity for its solution. It was soon solved. A monkey seen attaching his tail to the lowest the bridge, another girded him in a simi lar manner, and so on, until a dozen more was added to the string. These last were all powerful fellows ; and running up to a high limb, they lifted the bridge into a position almost horizontal. Then a scream from the last monkey of the new formation warned the tail end that all was ready ; and the next moment the whole «bain was swung over, and lan ded safely on the opposite hank. The lowermost links now dropped off like a melted candle, while the higher ones lea ped to the branches and came down by the trunk. The whole troop then scampered off into tho chappcral and disappeared. This move the was now 01! A greenhorn Bat a long tlmo very atten tive, musing upon a eane bottom ebair. At length he fAid: "I wonder what fellow took the trouble to find all them ar holes, Md put them straws around em." A strong-minded woman was beard to remark, the other day, that she would marry a man who had plenty of money, sne had to scream though he was so ngly pyeijr time she looked at him. ■HOOFLAND'S GERMAN BITTERS AND Hoofland's German Tonic. Tlie Great Remediee For all Dl.ea.ea of Hie LIVER, STOMACH, OR DIGESTIVE ORGANS. HOOPLAND'S GERMAN BITTERS Is composed of the pure juices (or, as the medicinally termed Extracts) of Roots, and Barks, making a preparation, highly concen trated, and entirely freefrom all alcoholic admixture f any kind. Hoofland's German Tonic cy are Herbs, Is a combination of all the ingredients of the Bitters, with the purest quality of Santa Cruz Rum. Orange, &c. making one of the most pleas ant and agreeable remedies ever offered to the public. Those preferring a Medicine free from Alcoholic admixture, will use Hoofland's German Bitters. Those who have no objection to the combina tion of the Bitters, as stated, will use HOOFLAND'S GERMAN TONIC They are both equally good, and contain tho same medicinal via tues, the choice between the two being a mere matter of taste, the Tonic being the most palatable. The stomach, from a variety of causes such ns Indigestiou, L'\. ,-opsin, Nervous Debility, etc. is very apt to have its functions deranged. The Liver, sympathizing as closely as it does w ith the Stomach, then becomes a flee ted, the result of which is the patient suffers from several or more of the following diseases : Constipation, Flatulence, Inward Piles, Fulness of „Blood to the Head, Acidity of the Stow ifch, Nansen, Heartburn, Disgust for Food, Fulness or Weight in tho Stomach, Sour Eructations, Sinking Fluttering at the Pit of The Stom ach, Swimming of the Head, Hur ried or Difficult Breathing, Fluttering at the Heart, Choking Suffocating Sensations when in a Lying Posture, Dimness of Vision, Dots or Webs before the Sight, Dull Pain in the Head, Dcflclenoy4)f Perspiration. Yellowness of the Skin and Eyes, Pain in the Side, Back, Chest, Limbs etc. Sudden Flushes of Heat, Burning in the Flesh, Con stant Imaginings, of Evil, and Great Depression of Spirits. The sufferer from these diseases should exercise the greatest caution in the selection of a remedy for his case, purchasing only that which he is as sured from his investigations and inquiries, pos sesses true merit, is skilfully compounded, is free from injurious ingredients, and lias established for itself a reputation for the cure of these diseas es. In this connection we would submit those well-known remedies— Hoofland's German Bitters, AND Hoofland's German Tonic PREPARED BY DR. C. M. JACKSOX, PHILADELPHIA, PA. Thirty-five years since they were first intro duced into this country from Germany, during which time they have undoubtedly performed more cures, and benefited suffering humanity to a greater extent than any other remedies known to the public. These remedies will effectually cure Liver Com plaint, Jaundice, Dyspepsia, Chronic or Nervous Debility, Chronic Diarrhœa, Diseases of the Kid neys, and nil Diseases arising from a disordered Liver' Stomach or Intestines. DEBILITY. Resulting from any cause whatever ; prostra tion of tho system, induced by severe labor, hard ships, exposure, fevers ée. There is no medicine extant equal to these rem edies in such cases. A tone nud vigor is impart ed to the whole system, the appetite is strength ened, food is enjoyed, tlie stomach digests pro perly, the blood is purified, the complexion be comes sound and healthy, the yellow tinge is eradicated from the eyes, a bloom is given to the cheek«, and the weak nnd nervous Invalid be comes a strong and healthy being. Persons advanced in life nnd feeling the hand of time weighing heavily upon them, with nil its attendant ills, will find in the use of this Bitters, or the Tonic, an elixir that will instill new life into their veins, restore in n measure the energy and ardor of more youthful davs, build up their shrunken forms, uud give health and happiness to their remaining years. NOTICE. It is a well established fact that fully one-half of the female portion of our population are seldom in-the enjoyment of good health, or, to use their oWn expression, 1 'piover feel well." They are languid, devoid of all energy, extremely nervi and have no appetite. To this class of persons the* Bitters, or the Tonic is especially recommended. WEAK AND DELICATE CHILDREN Arc made-strong by the use of cither of these remedies. They will cure every caso of Maras mus without fail. TESTIM01SriA.3L,S. Hon. Goo. W.
