It was night. Jerusalem slept a quietly ' amid her hills at a child upon the breast of iis mother. The noiseless sentinel stood like ilntute at his post, and the philoso pher's light burned dimly iu the recess of his chamber. - ' But a dark night was abroad upon the earth a mortal darkness involved the na tion in its uulighted shadows. Reason "shed i faint glimmering light over the mind of men, like the cold and glimmer in j light of a distant star. The immor tality of man's spiritual nature was un known Uis future obscured in a cloud of mystery. It -as at this period that two forms of ethere.il mould hovered over the-land of God's chosen people. " iThey seemed like sister angels enl to earth upon some embassy of love. The one was of majestic stature ; and in, the well formed limbs with her snowy drap ery hardly concealed, in her erect bearing and steady eye exhibited the highest de gree of strength and confidence. Her right ami was extended in an expressive gesture upwards, where night appeared to haveplacrd her darkest pavilion, while on the left rec ined har .lelicate companion, in form and countenance the contrast of the other for she was drooping like a flowef when uumoistened by - refreshing "dows and her bright but troubled eye i of Mr. Smith. scanned the air with ardent varying glan j " 'Arabella, love, 'don't be so rude,' nud ces. Suddenly a light like the sun flash-: god Mrs Simpkins, primus, ed out from the heavens and Fairii and ' 'Arabella, eat your toast,' frowned Mr. Hone hailinir with exulting onrs the as-; Simpkins. secondus. cending Star of Bethlehem. Years rolled away, and the strancer was seen in Jerusalem. He was a weak, unassuming man whose happiness seem- ed to consist iu acts of benevolence to the human lace. ' ! i There were seen traces of sorrow on ' his countcnanance, though no one knew I why he grieved lor he lived in the orac- i tice of every virtue, and was laved by all the wise and good. l)y and by it was rumored that the stranger worked mira cles, that the blind saw, the dead leaped to life at his touch ; that when lie com manded, the ocean moderated its chafing v a tide, and the very thunder articulated, 'he is the Son of God!' Envy assailed him with the charge of sorcery, and the voice of impious judges condemned him to death. Slowly and thickly guarded he ascended the hill of Calvery. A heavy cross bent him to the earth. But Faith leaned upon his arm, and Hope, dipping her pinions in his blood, mounted to the skies. "- - . Vermont Wit. There is a good deal of humor oozing out from time to time up among the Green Mountains. The last drop that has reach ed us, came from a small village not many miles from Bennington. 1 Old Stokes, after years of toil, got pos session of a granite ledge. He was in the habit of buying his powder with which he quarried the ledge, of one Jonas Arch bald, who sold tape, groceries, and other varieties in tlio village store. ' Archbald was a good deal of aabeaster shout his wares, and one evening, while a crowd was silting round the stove in the tavern bar room, he addressed Stokes with : . .. ,,JVeIl,old Stokes that's pretty good powder of mine, I paid a high price fur it down in Boston. I recommend that powder. How do you like it, Stokes I" Well,' responded Stokes, ihwly. 'It's pretty good powder, but I came near los ing the last keg I bought.' 'Ah, said ArchbalJ, 'how's that ?

' Notions of the Insane. The vagaries of the insane are some limes amusing to witness; and not tin Pre queiitly there is a 'method in their mad ness' that would not be amiss iu those outside of lunatic a?ylums. Many years ago, in Philadelphia, a patient in the in sane asylum fancied himself to be the Re deemer of the world ; and his talk and actions were always in keeping with the character, save that he exacted a rigid de ference to his person and his divinely de rived power. But one day another pa tient arrived, whose idiosyncracy it was, that he was the Supreme Being. A little while after his entrance into the institu tion, he met in one of the halls, the im agined representative of the Son, who not liking his bearing and mien, remind ed him who he was. 'Yes, you are the son, but know from henceforth,, that you have seen the father. J' . ..'And strange enough,' said the keeper of the institu tion to the friend who gave the particu lars, 'from that day forward, all the pow er was given unto the latter ; and at length the fancied Sou's air-drawn vision melted away, and lie left the establishment a per fect sane man !' . Some twelve or fifteen years ago, there was in the lunatic asylum at Worcester, Massachusetts, a kiud of crazy David j Crockett, who fancied thai he could do I anything that could be done and a little jmore. One day a good many visitors I were walking slowlv through the halls examining them, and occasionally saying j a word or two to the patients. After a v ery courteous reception of a gentleman, who mentioned that he had come from Souln Carolina, the crazy man interrupt- cAm wilh : .

It was to have ripped the earth, and sent the Mississippi into the Gulf of Mexico. : Look here!' he continued, pointing to a crack in the plas tering, 'that.s one of my earthquakes!
