A g 29tf'3 death fire into her cheek, and her eyes gleam ed with the fitful flash of disease; but about her sweet lips hovered a constant smile; she had conquered her fear of the king of ter. rors, and dwelt upon her departure with al most exulting joy, "I knew that through Christ, I was prepared to go," she said to her pastor; "I knew there were glories in the bright world above, that the imagination cainnot conceive of; yet, I have shuddered from my infancy at death. The thought of dissolution, with its icy chills and quivering' breath made me cold to my heart, and I strive to forget it, but cannot. Yet, since you, since my mother, since all who know me have made it a familiar and a household word-clothed it its beautiful thoughts, and surrounded it with heavenly images-it has become less and less terrible, till now I can hold my hand to hiimi who unlocks the spirit, and say, " Death, where is thy sting ?' As she spoke thus, a ray from the setting sun imaged a crown of glory upon her fair brow. Her mother and friends at that mo. ment entered. " Hush !" said the pastor, with uplifted hands, and they stood transfixed. With that last holy smile he had marked an instantane ous change; and as he bent forward, through the lips, so beautifully wreathed, there came I no breath. " Well might she exclaim, " Death where is thy sting!" said the pastor, turning with tear-illed eyes, "never saw I the king of terrors in so lovely a garb. [low sweetly she sleeps!" -Aye! sweetly still, in a grave yard upon the hill side; and on the white shaft that bears her name some lovely hand has chisel. f led, "IT Is NOT IHARD To DIE."

" I was once opening a speech from the stamp," said a distinguished Western politi dal orator to us recently, and was just be. t ginning to warm with my subject, when a Sremarkably clear and deliberate voice spoke I out behind me, saying: ;" Guess he wvouldn't talk quite so highfa. -lutin, if he knew that his trowvsers was bu'st 1 clean out behind !" S" From that moment I couldn't 'get on.' f The people in front began to laugh, and r there was a loud roar in my rear, and I Sdared not reverse my position Ffor fear of > having a new audience of my condition. I B made, or rather invented, an excuse for de ,lay, and sat down. The malicious scoun I drel!I" continued the orator ; " it was only a * mean trick after all. There was nothing un B der heaven the matter with my unmention 1ables !" I OBEYING ORDERS.-" Edward," said his f mother to a boy of eight, who was trund ling a hoop in the front yard,"* Edward, you r musn't go out of that gate into the street."

To her sur ,prise she saw Edward in the street, engaged* t in the very edifying employment of manu. ,facturing dirt pies. , "Didn't I tell you," said she angrily, "not to go through the gate ?" S"Well, I didn't mother," was the very 5satisftonry eply "1 imcd ncri nrthe fence !" TRANE GOD MCR PLAnAlNT WEATHER.

"Now, doctor," said a sweet faced gil looking with confidence into the kind fac that had bent over her so often, " tell me i there is any certainty that I shall ever re cover I I think not; so you see I am pre pared for ill tidings, and I am continuall; tormenting myself with the question. Wil you not be candid with me, dear Dr. Ellis? " While there is life"-commenced th doctor, but the frail young creature interrup ted him, saying: "No, no, doctor, that won't do; I mus have your professional opinion; and when say that my soul's happiness, for the remnat of this life, will be affected by your decision surely you will grant me the request." " But could you bear-" "A nything , doctor, but this suspense. am willing to be told the exact state o my case; for you see, some days 1 feel s< really well, that my hope is unduly excited and again, when the sleepless hours and ter rible pains come, death takes an awful shape and frightens me out of repose. But if was certain-she spoke with solemnity-" would teach my -mind'to' dwell upnIt it such a way that my foolish fears would leavi me." My sweet girl," said the doctor, taking her wasted hand, " I will then grant thi: request. ,You cannot certainly recover unless some extraordinary providence occurs Your life nay be protracted for some month. yet, but not over a year at farthest, so i seems to me." The pale cheek grew a shade paler, bu the smile faded not on the gentle lips. " Thank you, doctor," was her reply "thank you, for your trust and confidenei in me. You shall see that I will not abuso them." The beautiful consumptive sat alone it her large easy chair some moments after thi doctor had gone. She gazed about her oi luxuries which wealth unbounded had pro cured for her pleasure, and the large, untron bled eyes grew dim. "'IThen I must die !" she said to herseli " and oh, this fear, not of an hereafter, bu of that dread passing through the valley which shadows my hours of suffering? Even my religion does not dissipate tha shrinking, shuddering fear. The impression of my childhood will not away, hut returi wvith new force." And as she thus hal whispered to herself, a lovely matron enter ed, and hurrying to her side, kissed the fal brow. " You are better to-day, child," she sal< in tones of forced calmness; "nay, don' shake your head so mournfully; indeed,i you knew howv much improved you appear, and she drew a low seat towards the youn1 girl and sat gazing in her eyes with the hol; love of maternity. " Mother," said the consumptive, as sha took the matron's hand in her own, " thern is something I want you to do for me." " What is it darlingi You knew I wouli lay down my life for you." For an instant the pale lips quivered; bs commanding herself, the young girl sail gently: "1I want you to talk to me of death-c my own death, which is certain soon." "My Amy !" was all the mother couli articulate; her voice seemed frozen by hot ror. " Yes, mother; for, listen a moment, will ipake your poor sick child more willini to leave earth, and find heaven, if you wil talk daily and cheerfully of passing away if you will surround the thought with cheer fulness, and mnake the last struggle seer pleasant to me, this strange horror wit' which I regard it would fade away, and m; mind be drawn more wholly to the bette land. It may be a sacri~ce to you, m; mother, but!I shall learn to look forward t< my death-bed with calmness, which I strivi in vain to do now. Will you try to do this mother? Will you talk of it often? Wil you repeat the sweet words that dying saint have spokeni Will you speak of the smile that repose upon their faces, until I ca think cheerfully, and talk without reserve o that change, event as I would lie down, an' put my garment by, ready to attire mysel when I should awake in the fair morning Will you tell those who call to see me neve to shrink from speaking to mue of death Will you do this my mother I" The matron promised, and retired to he chamber, to shed the tears of anguish bori Iof this request. She, too, had long felt tha her child must die, but had put it afar ofi " the evil day." And in the strength of God she performed her duty. Seven months had passed, and still gentl .A my lived 'rho fatal crimson burnt it A WhISPER FS THE ToM, [ stood one night beside a drunkard's g:ave yard. Around a Pew made grave still I lingered the heart-broken wife and pauperi f children of him who lay beneath; it was in. I deed a sad sight; such a sight as angels might almost weep over. As I stood silent. a ly looking on, methought there proceeded n from the Tombs a thlilling whisper. The I whisper forms itself ito words, and they il were " Beware! Bevsre ! oh man, of the F wine-cup!" I then wished I had a sten- C torian voice, that I mig t repeat those solemna 1 words until they shou pierce the Northern ti pole, float over the fio lery South and come f< reverberating back from beyond the Rocky K Mountains-until my beloved country should se be free from the folds of the serpent that is A fast winding around h#r-until her sonls take &I up the cry of Prohibition, and shall rejoice in freedom, while the ITemperance" Banner ti waves proudly above tiem.

Some of the ladies, especially a the young portion, profess to conceive of no al sight more horrid than that of the heavy J moustache, the bushy whiskers and flowing b goatee. An argument inl favor of long li beards has recently been advanced, however, p which is likely to prove one of considerable ti potency. It is now affirmed that long beards ec most effectually prevent ulcerated sore throat sE with all who wear them, and the N. Y. Ob. server says, the officers and crew of the at North Star, Arctic ship, nowv in Sheerness, a have suffered the privation of two winters, h f six months each, total darkness, with the.a thermometer50 deg. below the freezing point. si They have been without a single human be- pi ing to associate with, except their own little ai company, for a period of two years and a o1 alf. During the whole period the officers 'I and crew ceased to use a razor, merely scis- ir sor-cutting and trimming their faces, and heads-and there has not been one solitary oi ease or ulcerated or sore throat among them. cl Until within a week, the razor wvas only c: known by name in the ship, and strange to al say, immediately after the faces lost their el warm clothing several found that the cold n took effect on their throats. Not a single ta man or officer has been lost from sickness. h; PLAfl TALK FOR TIlE LaADIEs.-The ei Western editors are certainly very free speaking individuals, and their rhetoric, like j& the bowie knives of some of them, is sharp si and to the point. One of them speaking of C low necked dresses and short sleeves, says: s " The prevailing fashion among the ladies, which transposes an angel into a.model ar- i tist, is universally detested by every gentle. le man whose good opinion a lady should do- e, sire. It blunts the finer feelings of bothp sexes, and is a disadvantage to the wearer- it A round, plump, white arm is beautiful and may be admired with all propriety; but an T arm shaped like a three-cornered file with red elbows, is not beautiful, and in competi tion,w~ith a Spanish garrote would stand no chanceof being elected to one's neck. An T alabaster base half concealed by a coquetish eollar is the most bewitching sight in the world; but a large expanse of bony should- F rs, painted like a patent hanm, with its con. F tiguous unprotected territory, has about as T many attractions as a newly painted Wind- F sor chair. MASTER B., a remarkably smart student T at Harvards, is another "gentleman by in tint." A liberal use of starch and cod oil T have greatly polished him. He once said to his iother. "1I say ma'ma, where's Bill?" g " My son don't let me hoar you say Bill ni again. You should say William." Ce " Well, mother, where's William ?" di " In the yard, feeding the ducks. tL "0O yes, I see him now.

Rothschild & Sons, of Frankfort-on-the. aine. tl " The decease of Baron Rothschild is still v e topic of conversation in the city. I dare I y that, in a long series of years, no event i is created so great a sonsation and so much Z tracted the attention of the whole popula. v )n as the decease of this person. He was h 'ndered popular, not only by his social po- I Lion and vast wealth, but by his personal d >pearance and habits. There was scarcely v man in Frankfort to whom the " Old Roth- P hild" (as the people called him) was not n town. Every day, when entering or leav. c g his banking-house, he was surrounded v a crowd of the poor. His willingness to h ye and the good humor with which he dis. n ibuted his benefits were never disturbed 8 the importunities of these turbulent as. a mblages. "Baron Rothschild was popular with all n asses, because his benevolence extended to ( distinctions of' political and religious par as. " was a rigid observer of all the re. c irements of his faith, to such a degree that, o the sumptuous feasts to which he was in- 11 ted or which lie gave at his own residence, t was never known to touch any meat not 1 epared according to the Jewish mode, and r ithersickness nor inclemency of the weath- ii was able to restrain him from the perfor. r ance of his religious duties and ceremonies. h e belonged to the orthodox fraction of the tl wish community, but his benefits extended i all alike. tj "I have seen a list of yearly distributions a ade for the account of Baron Rothschild, t, Dm which it appears that not less than h 00 Christian families had profited by his h Dunty. The weekly " distribution" for his Y count amounted to at least 50,000 florins JI r year, and probably an equal sum was s nt.abroad for the relief of the indigent. e esides these gifts he contributed to all pub. a institutions of charity, as well as for art, a erature, and the like. e " Whilst his liberality towards his fellow h tizens afforded them a constant relief, his c vn personal habits were extremely simple. 11 ith such great wealth, favored with the c iendship and esteem of sovereigns, loaded t ith honors and distinctions, Baron Roths. a iild never forgot the origin of so exalted h position. The humble cottage in the daik a iI narrow street (called the " street of the p ws,") in which lie and his brothers were o )rn, was visited by him daily during the 1I etime of his mother, who could never be irsuaded to exchange that humble habita- n >n for any of the sumptuous palaces offer I to her by the love and veneration of her a ins. 11 "Baron Rothschild was no less kind and rectionate towards his family at large. He as married for more than fifty years, but o ano children. His wife died in 1848, n id his affections have beena devoted to his t sters and brethren and to their numerous s ogeny. He was the eldest of five brothers, a id outlived them all, with the exception of t te, (Baron James Rothschild, of Paris.) we of thenm (Charles and Solomon) died b the course of last year.a " At another time I may extend this notice h the personal character of Barona Roths- i: id, and give some details concerning his n pacity for business, of the skill, persever- '1 ie, and good luck which enabled the Roths- 3 ilds to extend all over the world their tl tie and influence; to form a baniking es- j blishment whose wealth and importance i ive beena unparalleled to the present timie,a id an scarcely be superseded by their suc issors. t " The fortune left by Baron Amschel layer yon Rothschild is estimated at over ~, xty millions of florims; that left by Baron harles, at seventeen millions, and by Baron alom at forty-eight millions of forims. " The will of Baron Rothschild was made I 1849. TIhie charitable bequests are much I ss important than the benevolence exercis I by him during a long course of years had epared people to expect. Among other ms of the will are the following : Florins. h >establish a " foundation" for the poor ' i of Frankfort, to keep up the weekly di. tribution of alms at the " Old Roths- I childs' house, in the street of the fl Jews,&e.............-----1,00,000 d furnish dower. to Jewish ma ens, the interest on 50,000 florins, sh~ree years' interest for one portion).........50,000 r Jewish hospitals.... .... ........25,000 c r Jewish schools...................5,00i the society for encouraging Jewish h traders audlworkmen.............. 10,000 ti r various Christian charitable institu tions.........................20,000 c pay for .Jewvish service in his dwell- a ing (as heretofore) the Interest on.... 25,000 3 found a majority in favor of his a nephew A nsehn, son of Solomon.... 4,000,000n his nephew blaria Charles, son of Charles..........n.........1,000,000 " To a second son of Charles William he 0 ive his large house and gardens. The do- e ains and properties possessed by the de. ti ased in different countries are likewise t< stributed among the different branches of I e Rothschilds, so that the greater bulk of g is large fortune remains in the fatmily. " The nost pleasing feature in the dispo. tion made of this property is the provision c continue forever the weekly distribution o alms at the "'Rothschild old house in the a reet of the Jewvs." T1his cannot fail to be Ii Sincalculable benefit to the poor of Frank. p r t.a "ihe funeral of Baron Rothischihld took is .a.. on Sunday last, aecording to the sim.- f. ile and modest custom of the Jewish religion. he body was followed by his -family, the ttendants and friends of the house, by more ian one thousand persons of all classes and eligious, and by some one hundred and fifty quipages. rhe ministers of the Protestant hurch also attended the funeral. Their se ior, the Dean Frederick, expressed publicly 3 Baron James Rothschild, the thanks of ie community for all the benefits bestowed n it by the deceased. In reply, Baron James aid that so long as the family of Rothschild ontinued to exist the poor of Frankfort hould constantly enjoy their solicitude." DEATI OF ANDREW J. MILLEL.. Profound and universal sorrow pervades is community, occasioned by the death of lis much beloved and most valuable citizen, 1ho departed this life on Sunday morning, d inst., after a short and violent attack of 'neumonia. On his arrival at boime on unday the 27th ult., from Milledgeville, fhere he had -been assiduously engaged in is duties as Senator from Richmond, he was abording under the incipient stage of the isease. But with that devotion to duty hich ever characterized him, he was in his lace in the Superior Court on Monday iorning, where professional engagements ailed him. He was there seized with a se. ere chill and was compelled to retire to his ome. There, surrounded by its beloved in iates, and attended by the best medical kill of our city, which availed naught to rrest the march of the fell destroyer, he reathed his last, soothed by the conscious ess of a life well spent, and cheered by a bhristian's hope. Mr. Miller possessed, in an eminent de. roe, the confidence and respect of our entire ommunity, and during a professional career f thirty years he enjoyed a very large and icrative practice, and continued, from year > year, to increase his legal reputation, until e took position in the State in the very front ink of his profession. Courteous and kind i his intercourse with his professional breth. -n, and remarkably liberal in his practice, e ever commanded their respect and won seir warm friendship and regard. He was ideed to them a brother. In this character ie writer knew him well and iniimately, nd as such, appreciated and loved him. It is us a mournful satisfaction to testify to his igh merits and noble nature. He practiced is profession not merely as the astute law. er, but in the elevating spirit of a votary of istice, ever mindful of the high moral and oeial responsibilities of his vocation. In very quality of mind and heart. he was an rnament to his profession. So far from vailing himself of' his position and influ. nee to foment litigation and strife among is fellow citizens, hn often arranged, out f Court, diflicult questions among contend. ig parties, by compromises in a way to se ure to each substantial justice. While he ever sacrificed or neglected the interests of client, the opposing party, when placed in is power, found him always a forbearing ntagonist, and often a substantial and sym. athizing friend. This was one great secret f his marked, uninterrupted, and almost un. mited influence among us.
