The publisher of the Public Ledger of Philadelphia, George W. Cliilds, haa recently been spending some days at the United States Military Academy at West Point, as one of the annually appointed visitors of inspection to that institution. He has written, or caused to bo written, some letters to his journal, from which I make several extracts. Describing the Exhibitions of horsemanship given by the First class in the ridiug hail, the exciting and interesting event during the ten days ex<>UA<nAO 1>A OOITO cruiocSj uc saja "They first passed around at a galtop. going through the various exercises presented for the sabre, after which barriers were leaped and heads of imaginary infantry men were hammered and knocked off with a grace and ease that charmed the ladies, who applauded the more skillful performers. On each side of the hail posts, about six feet high, having on the top gum plates about five inches square, were placed to represent men. Between these posts were barriers, at an elevation of about five feet. Each cadet charged at a gallop, and the first wooden man was shot with an army revolver. As the pistol was returned to the bolster the barrier was leaped, the sabre drawn and a terrific blow aimed at the second wood and rubber man. In most cases both of the ima^ liiiiry liiittuiry men ?cic aiiuuuiatui. The barriers being removed, iron rings two inches in diameter were suspended from wooden fixtures, and a piece of flat rubber was placed on the ground to represent a prostrate foe. ^Each cadet in turn was again called out to gallop around tbe hall, and required to cut at the erect infantrymen, slap at the head of the prostrate "dough boy," aud finally thrust at the iron ring. These several feats were successfully performed in most cases." A large part of a letter is taken up with remarks 011 clans feeling among the cadets, which is represented to be "very strong." After giving a number of incidents in proof of this allegation, the writer continues: "The feeling between the two upper classes this year has not been confined to a refusal to hold social intercourse. Individual members have had communications, but they were of a hostile character. Numerous pitched battles have taken place under the rules of the ring, and black eyes and scar red faces attest the severity of the battles. These encounters are always conducted under the management of a few friends of the combatants, in the vicinity of Port Putnam or other locality, safe against the surprise of the authorities, It is a singular fact, that while a tactical officer can detect a minute speck on the collar of if cadet at j^s^ction4_hj& isnever able to see a black eye or a skinned nose?at least he cannot see such trifles officially." Now, in the light of what has just been told relative to charging and overturning the wooden representations of foemen, and slashing fiercely at the "dough hoy," and refusing to hold intercourse, and fighting pitched battles among themselves, it is instructive to read what a religious paper communicated the next week relative to the sermon of Post Chaplain Postlethwaite to the graduates. The minister's' text was from Isaiah Ixi verse 6, "But ye shall be named the priests ot the Lord! Men shall call you the ministers of our God." No doubt his "long and earnest" remarks upon the good that the "priests of the Lord," iu the broadest possible sense, could and should do, were excellent, as was also the address following, hi which he enjoined the graduates to the faithful, heroic performance of their every day duties. In conclusion he said,?"Let nie beseech you by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. You are at this time offering yourselves on your country's altar, ready to die for that country at any moment. I therefore beseech you make this two fold offering of yourselves?to your God and to your country. Being His, He will stand by you in every duty, in every hour of peril, and* when the time of your departure is at hand He will receive you into the arms of everlasting victory. A telegraphic dispatch spoke of a fine portrait of Grant to be placed in on? of the halls of the Academy, by which it would be "sanctified." It was expected that the portraits of the great Generals would be placed beside it, and give access of glory to the place. Are the exercises at the Military Academy of the government, promotive of the religion of Him who said, "Love your enemies?" Josiah \V. Leeds. The Soft-lieaded Skeptic. A young skeptic riding in a stage coach forced his sentiments on the company by attempting to ridicule the Scriptures. He ridiculed the story of a youth like David being able to throw a stone with sufficient force to sink into the head of the Giant Goliah. To which remark, a Quaker in the company replied by saying: "Indeed, friend, I do not think it unreasonable, if Goliath's head was as soft as thine." This adhominem argument spiked the gun of the youthful infidel. m At Quito, the only city in the world on the line of the equator, the sun sets and rises at 6 o'clock the year round. Your clocks may break down, your watch stop, but the sun never makes a mistake here. "NVhen it disappears for the night it is 6 o'clock and you set your watch by it. * r T* T A U?.nA n.^U/xH X1 %J V uuniotj iicj autitui tn "Safe in the Arms of Jesus," and other poems of like religious feeling, is residing in New York City in comparative poverty, it is said. She is a Methodist, and became blind wheu six years of age. Some persons are capable of making great sacrifices, but few are capable of concealing how much the sacrifice has cost them : anditis this concealment that constitutes their value. That was a quaint conceit of the boy who, when he unlocked the horns of two fighting goats and separated them, said he had unbuttoned them. I u*m ii i " nrTiawi inurm - *im His Faith. When a man in danger lias done all 1 he can, the temper of his soul issl 'iwn ? I by the way in which he stands and euduies. Mere steadiness in an emergency is so magnetic that cowering ! men become upright. In a terrible storm that swept the Western Lakes a year or two ago, a Lake Superior iron steamer was stranded upon a rocky reef. The pas- , sengers, roused at live o'clock in the 1 morning by the sharp concussion and grinding noise, rushed on deck. Suddenly the steamer careened, and lay on her side, wedged in among the j rocks. The bitter cold chilled the passengers to the bone, and the furious ' sea, breaking over the deck, swept ofl" many men qnd women. Shrieks of alarm and groans of despair were heard above the roar of wind and , wave. One man was calm. Captain Moor moved among the frightened passengers, risking his life to prevent a panic and to save those thrown down by the combing billows. With his own hands?many of the crew having been swept away?he stretched a life-line from one end of the deck to the other, and showed the surviving passengers how to hold on to it, encouraging them with the assurance that daylight would bring them relief from the shore. While he stood looking to see that every one grasped the life line, a huge wave knocked down the cabin and Jj washed the ruins over upon the captain, crushiug him to the deck. "I am lost!" he cried. "Good-bye? hold on to the line!" Another wave washed away the debris, and released the captain ; but his injuries chained him to the deck. Daylight brought not the hoped-for relief from the shore. All that day, whilo the storm raged and the waves | washed over the doomed steamer, the | captain spoke obeering words to the despairing souls, j As darkness gathered over the toss- ing waters, he said: 'Friends, let us all pray!" He led them in prayer. Through-' . out that night of agony, his voica. was heard, putting heart into those near I?? > l,ol., fWv,v? rjnrl IIIUJ, UIJU lUIfriUUli^ lici;; uuui vo?o At daylight on the second morning relief came. Several sailors, who had jumped overboard, had succeeded in swimming ash<#e. A line was thrown 1 from the land, and the survivors, after forty-eight hours of gazing into the ?. face of death, were rescued. The passengers received one impression which stamped itself upon them i even more deeply than the memory of their sufferings and fears. It was made by the grand courage and sub- 1 lime faith of the captain. "But for him," said a passenger, we should all have lost hope and in our I despair died. We saw him prostrate | on the deck, wounded and unable to ?<4^r. \bintr ivnrilc nf irnnil r*tiPOI' ??ov, jul Mpey""'o "e and praying God to save vs.' "Ve r blessed him, and kept lip a good J heart." In many a case, it is doing more for a person to receive a gift or n service from him, than to give a gift or to run- i der a service to him. Just because it is more blessed to give than to receive, we have no right to be always taking that blessing to ourselves; but we! I should permit others to gain their share of it. A child is helped by being privileged to give a gift to his parents, or to render a service to some one whom he loves and honors. A scholar is worth more in a class, through contributing to the stock of <j its common knowledge; and the class is worth more to him in consequence. | Mind and character are developed thlough their exercise, and are gainers through their outlay; hence, in every sphere of life there is an attainment which is possible only through self-denial and self-expenditure. Our duty toward others involves a looking at their needs in more directions than one; and in older to the meeting of their need of this aid to their highest development of mind and character, we must often permit them to be the givers and doers, when we should really find more personal enjoyment in , conferring favors than in receiving ^ them. The Interior says : "Giving is like a \ fiy-blister. It is a counter-irritant to , selfishness. It never does good until 1 ! it hurts." Daily ought we to renew our purposes, and to stir up ourselves to greater fervor, and to say, "Help me, my God, in this my good purpose and in thy holy service. Our resolutions seem to be vigorous, i sia nftpn na wp rpflpoh nnnn nnr nast, er- i jror9, but they are apt to flag, upon fresh temptations to do the same I things. j Let us keep the feast not with the | leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the un ! leavened bread of sincerity and truth. 1 Many, indeed, think of being happy j with God in heaven, but the being ; happy in God on earth never enters into their thoughts. How much more common it is to ask God's help in the morning than to i thank God in the evening for the help he has given. All perfection in this life hath some imperfection mixed with it, and no ' knowledge is without some darkness. Life will soon be done. Be not weaI ry or disheartened. What are a few years' toil in prospect of eternal rest? Purity, sincerity, obedience, and self-surrender are the marble step." that ! lead in the spiritual temple. Beloved, God meets those who are j in the way; Satan meets those who j are out of it. A great humbling is ft great mercy, j Lowliness is better than joy. The measure of our success Is in pro- ] portion as we satisfy God. i A million dollars will not buy a ray 1 of sunshine. < He is the richest who wants the ' least. NOTICE.
