The scene that followed it is impossible to des cribe The vast crowd packed on the A j * „nWoJ thpir floor and in the galler.es united their voices m cheer after cheer of welcome to the noble Delaware statesman. Men waved their hats in the air and one great excitement seemed ta pervade the 8 u 11 TI.« ^ip entire hall. The cheers would die away and Senator Bayard would advance to speak, when they would be renewed with fresh vigor, and it was evident that the people of Maryland were pay F *i„„ „ ing an ovation to the spotless senator. Mr. Bayard was visibly affected by the warmth of his reception. At last quiet being restored, he commenced his able and forcible address. speech of mr. BAYARD. He said that some time ago he ex pected to have had the pleasure of ad dressing the people of Baltimore, but was prevented by more pressing duties elsewhere. Even to-night a man whose heart was in the cause asked him why he came to Maryland when thero is more debatable ground elsewhere. A soldier must go where he is ordered, but even to him sometimes there must come a choice of duties, and he oould not resist the wish to address the peo E le of Maryland. [Cheers ] Elsewhere e could ask and hope for a welcome ; here be was sure of it. [Great cheers.] This canvass had become a very hope ful one. His'observation over a large part of the country was that the intelli gence of the American people was aroused, and their sense of self preser vation had been touched at last and he believed that the sun of November the seventh would go down on the victory of the cause that is right. [Loud cheer ing ] We find the Secretary of War seizing powers that are not his own, and using the army for party results alone. The federal officials everywhere were engaged in this Bame task. Look at the officials in Baltimore. Were they not likewise thus employed? If not, then Maryland was a happy exception. [Laughter.] This system of campaign was against the spirit of the constitu tion. Law, justice and decency forbid it, but Republican partisanship com pelled it. Tho Republicans had the audacity to make an aggressive cam For a while it seemed as if the DEMOCRATIC JUBILEE. SPEECH OP SENATOR BAYARD. paign. American people would stop to examine into the troth of the charges made by the Republicans, instead of investigat ing the truths against that party. For a while they were pleased, as it is proper they should be at the display of the American flag, the object of onr reverence and esteem. But sooi they detected that the Republican party were using it as a drop-curtain to conceal their enormities, and they began to ex amine into them. The responsibility of bad government and the existing de pression in every branch of trade and industry Mr. Bayard ably and logically argneu rested on the Republican party Boutwell had squandered 0100,000,000 left by McCulloch in the treasury and he had gone into the United States Senate and said nothing remained but dishonor or increased taxation. Their policy had made the return to specie payments more difficult than when their administration commenced. He urged all never to relax their efforts until the honest money of the people was secured. He alluded to the Republican pledges for civil-service reform, and said that it was illustrated by the appointment as one of the commissioners of Cattell, Mr Robeson's friend, who black-mailed one man alone out of 0125,000 before he could obtain work from the depart ment. Every honest official, such as Bristow, Wilson and Henderson had been kicked out of office. He had beard Ex-Senator Thurman say from the platform a few days ago that the whole power of the party ganization in Illinois was in the hands of federal office-holders;'that at the close of the Cincinnati Convention the committee was called together bat a quorum could not be obtained because of the members being in the peniten tiary. [Laughter ] He said that one of these men pardoned out by Grant he had met on the stump in Indiana for Hayes and Wheeler. [Laughter ] He referred to Belknap, every diamond be longing to whom represented a number of poor men's yearly pay, and every pearl the tears of his children [applause], yet at the recent ceremonies to do honor to the valor and virtues of McPherson, he had an honored place with Babcock He alluded to the listress everywhere and said the want of confidence that paralyzed every trade was caused by the dishonesty and misrule of Republi can officials, and impressively showed that a change must now be had or very little worth preserving would be left at the close of the next four years. The contest, he thought, was without a parallel in the history of the country. The spectacle is presented of the ruler of the nation, selected by the votes of the people, using the offices and powlrs of the government for strictly partisan purposes. The army and navy, urgan or ized for the protection of society, is ar rayed against society itself. It is the office-holders ranged against the people, [Loud cheers.] Their strength is mul tiplied by organization.

He said there was no law for it, and the State that had the right to confer the right to vote ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ the 6 peace and contro i the elections. The appointment of marshals and deputy marshals had no justification in the constitution. The President of the United States had no more right to interfere with the e]ectionf) than t 6 he Queen of Gr0at Bri . ta j n [ Grea t and ] on g continued cheer-, i n g.] He himself had asked the sheriff of his own county to enroll him as a d *P nt J at an ele ° tion Delaware when this thing was first tried, and if he had been direoted to have done so by the director of elections he would have ar rested the United States marshal him self if he had lived to have done so.— [Great applause and cheering ] He wanted the case tried, and would have been willing to suffer any number of arrests and fines to have it settled ; and therefore, he had offered himself to the sheriff. He alluded to the decision of the Supreme Court on the law and the language of the amendments, all of which showed the government had no such power. Whilst he would invoke the power of the government to stop the rebel he would invoke the power of the people to choke the despot. [Great and continued cheering.] Mr. Bayard oon eluded by saying that his friendship for the people of Maryland had its birth in events that occurred more than a hun dred years ago. [Great cheering.]— There was never an injury inflicted on her people he didn't feel as if inflicted on himself He had no relation or pro perty in South Carolina, but the rights of the white man of South Carolina were as his own, and he would speak for him. [Great cheering, lasting for sev eral minutes.] He then urgod every man to constitute himself a committee of one from now until the election.— Each man bad his power. Each man had his responsibility. Each man had in his breast that will which could not betaken away from him. Let every man show his disapprobation at every unworty official who assails tho freedom and fairness of the election. A . ., , . a L -a At the close of Senator Bayard s re marks there was another scene of great enthusiasm. The audience oheered him again and again. The band began to play, but the cheers drowned the notes of the music, and when the band finish ed the selections the cheers were still rolling through the hall, increasing in volume every second. It was at least five minutes before the vast audience ceased to cheer and applaud the power ful arguments of the Delaware states man. Such a scene of enthusiasm has been rarely witnessed in this city, and it evidenced the great hold Mr. Bayard has upon the affections of the people of this city and State.— Balt. Paper. THE GIRL WHO WINS. The day has passed when woman must be pale and delicate to be called interesting—when she must he totally ignorant of all practical knowledge to be refined and high bred—when she must know nothing of the current polit ical news of the day, or to be called strong-minded. It is not a sign of high birth or refinement to be sickly or ignor ant. Those who affect any thing of this kind are behind the times, and must shake op and air themselves mentally, or drop under the firm strides of com mon ideas and be crushed into utter in significance. In these days the active, rosy-faced girls, with brain quick and clear, warm, light heart, a temper quickly heated at intended insult or in jury, and just as quick to forgive; whose feet can run as fast as her tongue and not put her ont of breath ; who is not afraid of freckles, or to breathe the pure air of Heaven unrestrained by drawn curtains of a close carriage ; and, above all, who can speak her mind and give her opinion on important topics which interest intelligent people, is the true girl who will make a good woman This is the girl who wins in these days. Even fops and dandies, who strongly oppose women's rights, like a woman who can talk, if she is not handsome. They weary of the most beautiful crea ture if she is a fool. They say, "Aw, ya-as ; she is beantifnl and no mistake, but she won't do for me—lacks trains," for which commodity it would seem she coaid have a little use in her association with him. However, to please even an empty beaded fop, a woman mast know something. A gentleman, on walking out one I f evening, met a young Scotch Mjirl, whose parents lived near ■L "Where are you going, -^Bid he. "Looking for a son Briny mother, sir." I Su Pi A ROMANTIC STORY. ar the Forty years ago thero lived in Prov idence, within a stone's throw from where Grace Church now stands, a a young man of great intelligence and wonderful mechanical ability, who spent a small fortune in the vain attempt at making a perfect representation of Rus a sia iron, and after as many failures as attempts in this undertaking he became utterly ruined financially. His ambi tion for the secret increased as his for We tune grew smaller and smaller, and when absolute want stared him in the face he became possessd with the deter mination to accept of the only means of the obtaining one of the greatest secrets in mechanical art, and to gain this he must suffer penal servitude in the dungeons un- of Russia. The rulers of Russia are the only possessors of the art of making what is known as glazed Russia iron, used extensively for all kinds of stove and stove-pipe work, and which has for nearly a century been made within the the walls of Russia's underground prisons. None but life oonviots are allowed to be initiated into the secrets of the manu facture of one of the principal means of income to the Russian Government, and when once within its walls no one need ever hope for pardon, for none has ever been granted, while but one has ever to been known to have escaped, and when the door is once shut to the outside at world it is never known what has been the fate of the unfortunate. This, then, was the Providence man's last resort for gaining possession of the secret which had become his only ambition. He left his home for Europe, and the simple rumor of the attempted assassination of the Czar by an Ameriean, supposed to be insane, was all that was ever known to his friends of what became of the atn bilious mechanic, and, as nearly half a . century hag rBttled on gince he set out upon his perilous undertaking, hardly a person living will remember the cir a oumstance which is here recorded.— There is one person, however in Prov idence who remembers well the day the hero of our sketch bade her a tearful farewell, promising that before she reached her twentieth birthday he would return to her and fulfill his promise.— All through these long years she has never forgotten her promise to wait for of her lover, nor ceased to believe he would yet come to her. She now lives within a moment's walk of the chimes of Grace of Church, and is still well preserved, and her grace and beauty make her more attractive than many whose years are the same as were hers when her lover separated from her so long ago. Last week she received the glad tidings from far away over the water that he who had so long kept her so patiently wait ing was on his way to fulfill his promise of forty years ago, and let us hope he may bring the secret he paid for so dearly, and that he may live to see some reward for his great sacrifice.— Providence Press. THE HOPE OP THE REPUBLIC. More and more it becomes evident that the hope of the Republic is the personal virtue of its inhabitants. Such outside reforms—reforms of mere sys tem—aa that of the Civil Service, are chiefly valuable for their effects upon individual character. They are of great immediate importance in the conduct of public affairs and in the purification of politics ; but they are of wide import ance in educating the people toward a higher standard of honor. If men were as good as they ought to be, such legal checks and regulation as it is desired to institute would not be necessary ; every one wonld act upon principle ; no one wonld think of bestowing an office upon an incompetent persons, and no person who felt himself incompetent would think of accepting an office ; and espe pecially would it be impossible for any one either to give or to take a public position merely as a reward for party ■ervices. Now, after you have suc ceeded by a new method of appointment in getting a good man into power, it will be of no avail if this good man de generates in oharacter, yields to tempta tion, and comes at last to administer a public office for a private purpose.— Everything depends, it will be seen, upon his personal continuance in up rightness. And besides, supposing the country to be composed of two classes of citizens, those morally fit to hold office, let us say like General George Washington, and those morally unfit let us say like General Benjamin F. Butler ; it is manifestly in the interest of the country that the number of elig ible citizins should be increased, and the number of ineligible citizens dimin ished. Therefore, every public device like Civil Service Reform is valuable, not only in its immediate effect, but more deeply and widely in its indirect and widely diffused moral effects.— Therefore it is absolute and "practi cally" true and demonstrable, that who ever cultivates in himself and in his neighbors a keener and clearer moral sensitiveness, is, in fact, carrying on a reform, not only in the interest of spiritual and eternal things, bat in the interest of the commonwealth.—" The Old Cabinet Scribner for November. Tue Drunkard's Will. —Know all men by these presents, that I the county of Mecklenburg, and State of Virginia, being of sound and depos ing memory ; in view of the uncertainty of life,and the certainty of death,do make this my last will and testament, to-wit : I die a wretched sinner, and leave to the world a worthless reputation, a wicked example and a memory that is only fit to perish. I leave my parents sorrow and bitter ness of soul all the days of their lives. I leave my brothers and sisters shame and grief, and reproach of their ac quaintances I leave my widow and broken-hearted wife a life of lonely struggle with want and suffering. I leave my children a tainted name, a reviled position, a pitiful ignorance, and the mortifying recollection of a father who, by his life, disgraced hu manity, and at his premature death joined the great company of those who are never to enter the kingdom of God. I pray God that those who are yet liv ing may take warning and profit by the I above. of LONGEST BRIDGE IN THE WORLD. A piece of engineering enterprise of great magnitude and importance is just now making rapid progress. I allude to the new viaduct across the estuary of the Tay. Some particulars of this great work may not be out of place in this letter. The first stone of the Tay bridge was laid on the Fifeshire side of the Tay in the month of July, 1871.— The estimated cost of the undertaking was £220,000. The object of the un dertaking was that of connecting the important manufacturing town of Dun dee with the North British Railway Company's branch between Edinburgh and Tayport. The length of the bridge is 10,321 feet, and in shape it is not unlike the letter S. It is the longest bridge over a running stream in the world. On this account its constrùc tion was looked upon as one of the most important engineering works of recent times. Nor was it in respect of length alone tfiat it claimed to be unique, and threatened to tax all the constructive resources of its builders. It was beset with even greater trials, on account of the Tay being a tidal river, liable to enormous floods, and exposed to blasts of wind from east to west, whieh seem ed likely not only to hinder the pro gress of the work, but to destroy such progresses had aotually bean made.— But Mr. Bouoh, the engineer, the con tractors, and others who were directly concerned in its completion had full confidence in the practicability of the undertaking, and the advantages which it promised were so obvious and so con siderable, that when the needful act of Parliament was obtained and the scheme fairly floated, the shares for the requir ed capital of £300,000 were soon sub scribed as a special and separate under taking. For a long time very little progress was made in the work of con struction, on account of the experimen tal character of the operations and the frequent accidents that befel. During the last eighteen months, however, very substantial progress has been made.— The work has been thoroughly system atized, difficulties have been readily overcome, and the laying down of a set programme for each week and for each month has enabled the contractors to estimate with appoximate accuracy the date of completion. That date has been placed at only a year hence.— "A. K." in the Pictorial World. a at as the of in for be of of to a A PRACTICAL. WITNESS IN COURT. In Cox's court there was a charge of assault against that old offender and police favorite, "John Doe," and Mr. Dickson, the attorney, was examining a witness. Dickson—How hard did he shake the man when he grabbed him ? Witness—Idon'tknow. Pretty hard. Dickson—What do you call "pretty hard ?" Witness—Well, it was pretty hard— that's all I can say. Dickson—Come, now—you surely have sense enough to let the court know what you call "pretty hard." Witness—I guess I can show the court. It was like this— Here the witness rose from his seat, and, springing upon the astonished at torney, grabbed him by the^cqllar, and, with a strong, impulsive jerk, landed him on the floor. Then he gathered him up and flopped him across a chair—then he began to bang him over the floor, jam him up against the wall, and batter him around over the benches. "Hold on—I understand!" shouted lhe lawyer. "This is how he fetched him torted the witness, giving him another re lift. "Won't the court rule out his ans wer ? I object," said Mr. Dickson, catching his breath. "If you withdraw the question all right," said tho judge ; and springing down from his seat, he collared the wit ness and took him off. When he again mounted the bench, he remarked : "The witness appears to have introduced his testimony, but I can rule that the jury ignore his answei." By this time tho spectators were in a convulsion of laughter, and the attor ney retired to brush his clothes. The case was dismissed.— Virginia (Nev.) Chronicle. HONESTY IS THE BEST POLICY. One day a strange customer came to a Detroit grocer. He wanted some goods and he paid cash down. The next day he made another purchase and paid cash, and as the days went by his face and his cash became familiar. One day he returned with the change given him and said : "I believe I am an honest man. You paid me twenty cents too much." The grouer received it and was pleased. Two days after that the stranger returned from the curbstone to say : "Another mistake on yonr part; you overpaid mo by forty cents." The grocer was glad to have found an honest man, and was puzzled to know how he could have counted so far out of the way. Three days more, and the stranger picked up a dollar bill in the store and said : "This is not my dollar, I found it on the floor, and yon must take charge of it." The grocer's heart melted, and he wondered if the world was not progress ing backward to old-titne honesty. A skip of one day, and then the honest man brought down a wheelbarrow, or dered eighteen dollars' worth of groce ries, and would have paid cash had he not forgotten his wallet. He wonld hand it in at noon as he went past, he said, and it was all right with the in grocer. That was the last of the honest man ; morning fades to noon, and noon melts away in darkness, but he cometh not There are no mistakes in change—no more dollars on the floor, and the gro cer's eyes wear a way-off expression, as if yearning to see some one for about two minutes.

Dr. H , one of the skilled physicians of old-time Philadelphia,'was a member of the Society of Friends, though not always strictly obedient to their rules. He was called on one time by a com mittee of the "Meeting," who expostu lated with him upon his want of con formity in some respect. He heard them patiently, and in silence, and then said :— "Friends, I have had a dream which I would like to tell you." They agreed to hear him, and the old gentleman proceeded :— "I dreamed that the whole Society of Friends were collected in our great meeting-house, attending to the busi ness of the Church. The subject under discussion was the filthy condition of the meeting-house, and the moans of oleansing it. Many plans were pro posed and discussed by the prominent members, who sat in the upper seats, but none seemed likely to answer the purpose, until one little man who oc cupied a seat on the floor of the house, and had not taken part in the discus sion, got up and said: "Friends, I think that if each one of us would take a broom and sweep immediately around his own seat, the meeting house would be cleaned." A good lesson for every one. Im provement may go abroad, but should begin at home Let each man improve himself and he will be better fitted to improve others. THE RICHEST HEIRESS. The richest heiress in the world was mariied in London the other day, when Hannah de Rothschild, the only daugh ter of the late Baron Meyer de Roths child, wedded Lord Rosebery, the noted turfman. The late baron was a great sporting man, and he was also very much attached to Lord Rosebery, who has now tken to himself one of the most amiable, if not the handsomest of all the Rothschild ladies. Lord Rosebery was born in 1847, aud is consequently in his 29th year The late baron left 040, 000,000, and daughter, being his only child, received 035,000,000 of it under her father's will. The Rothschilds are very averse to to these marriages ; and even when Hon. Eliot Yorke, about two years ago, married Miss Annie de Roths child, the second daughter of Sir An thony Rothschild, the feeling about the marriage was so keen that Sir Anthony forbade it. It took place, however, though her father refused to give her a dowry. The ex-equerry to the Duke of Edinburg could afford to put up with the loss, for she had an income of some £18,000 per annum which she derived from her grandfather. WHICH IS RIGHT. Either the Japanese people do every thing backward, left-handed and upside down, or we do A traveler in Japan writes : "I see a man planing. He pulls the plane toward him. I notice a black smith at work. He pulls the bellows with his feet, while he is holding and hammering with both hands. He has several irons in tho fire, and keeps his dinner-pot boiling with the waste flame. He holds his tub with his toes. All of them sit down when they work. How strange! This je an important differ ence between a European and an Asi atic. One sits down to his work, and the other stands up to it. Why is it that we do things contrariwise to the Japanese? The Japanese say that we are reversed. They call our penman ship 'crab-writing,' because, they say, 'it goes backward.' In a Japanese stable we find the horse's flank where we look for his head. Japanese screws screw the other way. Their locks thrust to the left, ours to the right. A Cauca sian, to injure his enemy, kills him ; a Japanese kills himself to spite hia foe. Which race is right ?" a LOVE AND LABOR. Love lives to labor; it lives to give itself away. There is no such thing as indolent love. Look within your heart and see if this is not true. If yon love any one truly and deeply, the cry <Jf your heart is to spend and be spent iu your loved one's service. Love would die if it could not benefit. Its keenest suffering is met when it finds itself un able to assist. What man could see the woman he loves lack anything and be unable to give it to her, and not suffer? Why, love makes one a slave ! It toils night and day, refusing all wages and all reward save the smile of the one unto whom it is bound, in whose ser vice it finds its delight, at whose feet it alone discovers its heaven. There is no it of danger that language can be too strong or too frequently used to portray the service of love. By cradle and couob, by sick-bed and coffin, in hut and palace the ministries of love are being wrought. The eyes of all behold them ; the hearts of all are moved at the spectacle. NOVEL CURE FDR LOVE. A new and amusing cure for love has just- been found effective in a fashion able Parisian quarter. The son of a wealthy nobleman became enamored of his father's chambermaid, and deter mined to marry her. The aristocratic papa opposed, but moved at last by the despair of his son, gave his consent, with the proviso that the smitten youth should go to sea twelve months before the marriage. Shortly after his depart ure, the father, who had previously ob served a stoutness and fattening in the young intended, took her under his pecial charge, gave her the most ishing food and wines, forbade her to take exercise as unbecoming in his fu ture daughter, and in fact, stall-fed her to such an extent, that when the ored swain returned from his year's voy age, he was horrified to find, instead of the slender, elegant girl he had left, an immense fat woman large enough to put in a museum. Of course, the ruse was successful, and the unfortunate victim of good cheer has been pensioned off. ed so its es nour enam "Mister, I say, I don't suppose you don't know of nobody what don't want to hire nobody to do nothing, don't you?" The answer was, "Yes, I don't." SOUTH CABOUHA'S TRIBULATIONS. The addreas to the people of the United States, stating nothing bat the actual facts of the difficulty in South Carolina, is another oorrobration of the charge that the use of troops, in that unhappy commonwealth, is intended merely to overawe the Democratic ne groes, and drive them into voting for Chamberlain and his minions. Com ing as it does from the leading divines and business men of that State, it can in no way be considered of a partisan character, for the men who have affixed their signatures to that doenment are men whose probity and sincerity are above suspicion. That the blaoks in the recent collisions were the aggressors, and that they are evidently encouraged and protected in their lawlessness by the Republican authorities, are also clearly proven, and show to what des perate extremities the corrupt State government is driven, in order to per petuate their power and secure that "five years of good stealing" which Senator Patterson so infamously re marked was left in South Carolina yet. In Governor Chamberlain's call for troops, stress was laid upon the fact that the Legislature could not be assem bled in time to make proper application to the President, and also upon the want of money to pay the members. But a correspondent of the New York Herald writing from Columbia says that the Legislature is accustomed to assemble without pay, and that in 1868 and 1873 it did assemble, at both of which times the treasury was empty. That the treasury is now empty is also the fault of Chamberlain, who, against the protest of the State Treasurer, de posited 0200,000 in the Bank and Trust Company, of Charleston. This company was insolvent at the time the deposit was made, of which fact Cham beilaine must have been aware, as he was one of the directors of the bank and one of its attorneys The bank shortly after collapsed ; the State losing the 0200,000, had no money to pay, and, consequently, Chamberlain had the long wished for pretext to call on Grant for troops. TheBe facts oannot be refuted, and although the truth has slowly but surely come to light in re gard to the true inwardness of Cham berlain's plans, it must be born in mind that none of these tales have been writ ten from a Democratic standpoint ; but are the actual observations of impas sionate observers. The following para graph, clipped from the address of the representative ministers and business men of Charleston, tells the whole story in a few words, and eotirely refutes the charge brought by the Republican jour nals that Hampton's partisans are the only real aggressors : "It is not true that in the recent race collisions the white people have been the aggressors. Their forbearance as in the Charleston riot, the unpro voked Cainboy massacre, and the still more recent assassination of a white citizen at Edgefield, has been wonder ful. The truth is that the leaders of the colored people, fearing that the day of their power is drawing to a close, have excited their ignorant dupel, have supplied them with arms, have aroused their fears for the loss of their liberty, and have thus encouraged them te com mit deeds of violence." in to he fed the the ing READ AND BEAD THIS.

Lot us see the way a boy of 10 gets up in the morn ing, works, plays, studies, and we will tell you what kind of a man he will make. The boy who ia late at break fast and late at school, stands a poor chance to be a prompt man. The boy who neglects his duties, be they ever so small, and excuses himself by say ing, "I forgot, 1 didn't think !" will never be a reliable man. And the boy who finds pleasure in the suffering of the weaker things, will nsver be a noble, generous, kindly man—gentle man. nia hia not into to we fear Mu. Lincoln's Horse Trade.— When Abraham Lincoln was a lawyer in Illinois he and the judge got bantering one another about trading hones, and it was agreed that the next morning at nine o'clock they should make a trade, the horsei to be unseen up to that hour, and no backing out, under a forfeiture of twenty-five dollars. At the hour appointed the jndge came up, leading the sorriest looking specimen of a horse ever seen in those parts. In a few minutes Mr. Lincoln was seen approach ing with a wooden saw-horse upon his shoulders. Great were the shouts and the laughter of the crowd, and both were greatly increased when Mr. Lin coln, on surveying the judge's animal, set down bis saw-horse and exclaimed : "Well, judge, this is the first time I ever got the worst of it in a horse trade. tion and the it feet are eaeh old ing been and by Only does "It tlie Formation of Character.— Have you ever watehed the icicle as it form ed ? Have you noticed how it froze, one drop at a time, until it was a foot long, or more ? If the water was clean the iciolo remained clear, and sparkled brightly in the sun ; but if the waters was slightly muddy, the icicle looked foul, and its beauty was spoiled. Just so our characters are formed. One little thought oi feeling at a time adds its influence If each thought be pare and right, the soul will be lovely, and will sparkle with hapiness ; but if im pure and wrong, there will be deformity and wretchedness.
