My Sweetest Song for TheeThere's
not u curchvu wind that blows
ltul ha* its own bolorod roso.
Ami when th' > c.*'- fbrctollii the hour
It hioMtoth' ' nicnibcretl bower.
And in Aonivj my. ll*?s u'cnj nimuC
Begins Hd goDtl'i serenade.
And though at DvC'li upon the hill*
It trifles with the morning rills.
And whispers to oucli flower it meet*
?Sonio gentle word Hint's full of sweet.-',
Still the dourest gongs it knows
Is saved for that beloved rose.
There is not a star in yon blue sky
llut downward tur.is a listless eve.
Until wandering glances rest
On tliat blue wave it' >vc.s I He ;
Then it begins to toll onco 111010
Tilings sweet as if unheard before.
The beauties of tho html may an*Mo.
That sport may turn and sport awhile,
, Willi those soft dews that \rvt the cheek
' Of Howoi'8 that wilti tiivli |??ff.ir.ic speak,
And though Its glniice nmy idly seeiu
To have for all a loving beam,
The first, 'he brightest, ami the last
On that blue wavo is fondly eust.
I linvo ft message for the roso
And for that wave that gentle Hows,
And they will tell to wind and star
Ofonesweot lovu that's brightest far.
Than finght that winds or stars of heaven
To flowers or waves have ever given,
And thus where'er thy homo may bo
I'll waft my swoetcst song for thee.

No one will pretend tliat the necessities
of his licart or tho aspirations of his intellect
find on uavth amnle food to satisfy their
craving?. Home ami its priceless treasures
cannot absorb nil one's capacities for loving;
and the unfolding mind has constantly increased
powers of vi-' ". and desires to
grasp all that may o its comparatively

prayer,an aspiration, a thanksgiving, when,
this great fact acknowledged, the whole

and it is only when one by one the earthly
strongholds arc removed and the soul begins
tu feel' its isolation, that the hitherto
trailing tendril* seek un alnclin^ support.
How humiliating tiic thought that not
iu the sunshine, the melody and the joy,
man seeks his Maker; hut only when the
storm lays low his proudest possessions,
when the Angel of Death summons his beloved
uwny. Then with crushed hopes and
shattered strength, with lacerated heart,
he acknowledges a power mightier than his
own, ami a need of something beyond his
lately cherished supports.
No one who has prayed with the whole
heart, will doubt the ofiioaey of prayer j

If wo remember rigbtly, it w?n Lord 101don
who was presiding over the bcnch of a

death, lie had been last seen in company
with the prisoner; but ns there was no
other testimony bearing against him, he
stood with unabashed front before the judge,
and smiled in ridicule at tho attempt of the
King's counsel to convict him of the homicide.

gradually unrolling it, it was found to be a

indifferent reader will most probably
glance over this little essay, and lay it down
without porcoiving ita merit. The attentive
reader will see that there are few words
of more than one syllable used in it. To
appreciate the ingenuity of such an effort,
one ha* only to try to imitate it:
Rest is sweet. When day has closed
and sounds of toil are heard no moro, night
draws her dark robe around the earth and

and strife of the day, goes to his home, and
soothed by the lull is wooed to rest. Now,
as he lies on his eon , thoughts that vexed
him by dsty throng his mind. Ttis
sweet to nmsc on the joys of life, our loves
and hopes, as Sleep weighs down the lids
of our eyes and sheds his sweet balm o'er
the worn frame. One bv one our limbs
yield to his touch ; thoughts dance louud
us in a wild, mixed waltz?then one by one
they leave us: the mind makes mm fond
grasp at caoli loved shade as it flies, but
fails to seize it : the brain whirls, tho mind
acts no uioic, uud we "siuk down and cense
to be. "
This ii< sleep! so like death that sonic have
called them twins. But death wo fear,while
Sleep seems to ns a kind nurse who takes
to her lap the vexed child. AVe know that
| death bears lis on his breast to the world
we Know not, out wmcii we may not leave
when once our feet have touched its plains,
while Sleep leads us but to the world of
The bright world of dreams: nt. nigh',
we row our hark on its lakes and seas oi
glass; our feet tread its chores and wo walk
'mid its cells. Hrooks sing to us as they
leap on their way. Birds- with bright
plumes greet us from the boughs, as we pass
(id through the groves. No trees arc there
so green ns those that grow in the land of
dreams; no flowers so rare as those that
spring from the glad soil as wc draw near.
Towers crowned with gold throw back to
the sun the light he gives, and we glide on
through halls thronged with loved ones of
earth, or thoSe who passed from ns long since
to the world of shades. Night by night j
we talk to the loved ones there, and list to
the tales thev breathe in our earn : and nur
licarts swell with tho bliss wo feel. But
e'en the throb with which the heart greets
the joy is its dirge; for wo wake to weep
for the joy that lives not but in our dreaius
and is too sweet to be known on earth.
How wise a gift is sleep ! In the hush
of night sleep is born and re?t conies to
man. Morn comes; with the dawn he j
leaves his couch and goes forth to toil with
new zeal " as a stronir man to run a race."
Bach day of (oil has ito night of rest.?
Thug it is through lifo, till ut l\st death
comes, and man sleeps to wake to a new
life of joy or shame. As in sleep there is
no work, so thero is none in the grave.?
To one worn with toil the night of ^oath
must he sweet.
Hut there is no change there; " as the
tree falls so it must die:" I f tlien fW rlnv
of life bo lost, how sad the night. For
when the trump shall sound to wake us
from this last long sleep, we shall be judged
for onr vrorkf?; he that has done, well
shall rise to joy that ends not, he who has
done ill to slnuno and woe. Work, Nthen,
" while the day lasts, for the night conns
! when no man oan work."
Hon. Alexander H. Stephens, of

" When I was six voars old," says a well
known mcrcluuit, "my father died, leaving
nothing to uiy mother but the chargo of myself
anil two young sistera. After selling the
greater part of the household furniture elie
had owned, she took two rmall upper rooms
in W street, and thore. by her needle,
contrived in some war?how I cannot concoivo,
when I recollect tho bare pittance for
which she work -d?to support us in comfort.
Frequently, however. I remember that our
supper consisted simply of u slice of bread,
seasoned by hunger, and rendered inviting
by tho neat manner in which our repast was
served, our tablo always being spread with a
cloth, which, liko my good mother's heart,
seemed ever to preserve a snow-white purity."
Wiping his eyds, the morclmnt continued,
" Speaking oi" those days reminds me of the
time when wo sat down to tlio table one evening,
and my mother had asked tho blowing

some time after this that my mother found
an advertisement in the newsnancr fur nn

to have my clothes mended, for my mother
always kept them in perfect order, and although
on minute inspection they bore traces
of more than one patch, yet on tho
whole they had a very respectable air;
without being obliged to wait, even to polish
my tthocs, for my mother always kept a
box of blacking, with which my cowhides
must be not oft'before I took my breakfast;
without waiting to arrango my hair, for I
was obliged to observe, from my earliest
youth, the most perfect neatness in every
respect, my mother sent me to sec if I could j
obtain the situation. With a light 8tep I
