Tie but the racer casting off ' What most impedes his flight; 'T'.s but one little act, . Life's drama must contain: . One struggle keener than the rest, . And then, the end of pain. "There's no such thing as death;" That which is thus miscalled, Is life escaping from the chains ' That have so long enthralled ; Tis a once hidden star, Piercing through the night, Toshine in gentle radiance forth Amid its kindred light. "There's no such thing as death;" In nature nothing dies: From each sad remnant of decay ' Some forms of life arise. The faded leaf that falls, All sere and brown, to earth, Ere long will mingle with the shapes That give the floweret birth. 'There's no such thing as death;" 'Tis but the blossom spray, Sinking before the coming fruit, That seeks the Summer's ray; 'Tis but the bud displaced, As comes the perfect flower; 'Tis faith exchanged for sight, And weariness for power. 'Good and Better." A father sat by the chimney-post ,.. On a winter's day, enjoying a roast ' By his side a maiden young and fair, A orirl with a'weilth of irolden linir: And she teases her father, stern and cold r j i i u With a question of duty, trite and old; ..a r.i . iii . j 'Say, father, what shall a maiden do When a man of merit comes to wool And father what of this pain in my breastl Married or single which is the bestl" rfnir i Then the sire of, the maiden young and ' The girl of the wealth of golden hair, lie answers as ever do fathers cold 1 To the question of duty, trite and old; 'She who weddeth keeps God's letter: , She who weds not, doeth better." Then meekly answered tho maiden fair, , The girl with the wealth of golden hair; "I will keep the sense of J he Holy Letter, Content to do wnt ; without doing . ...

Lhris. Witness, She is Going' The New York Evangelist has the fol lowing: So said a inend as my mother Dream ed her last. She had been sick, nearly six weeks, and from the first seemed in clined to sleep, unless when aroused by acme pain ; consequently we were not able to have much conversation with her during her sickness. Often, when she lay with her eyes closed, and Dor body racked with pain, she exclaimed, "Oome, blessed Jesus, take me home." or some like expression, or repeal some passage of Scripture, until her tongue became so swollen that she could not ppeak. No, not even one word, though she seemed to recognize those who stood at her bedside. On Sabbath morning we thought her dy ing; her breath seemed to grow shorter and more labored, but she lingered on until Friday following, we thinking each hour would bejjer last. Ob ! those were distressing days, lo see her sunenng so munli pain, and not able to tell where it was, ni to take anything to allay her distress On Friday morning (the day on which our Saviour was crucifitd.) part of us be ing in an adjoining room, this luend an- nounced to us that she was going, and we surrounded her bed just in time to see her close her eyes for the last time upon all things earthly, and she 'lell a sfeep" without a smuggle. And as we gazed upon that lifeless clay, there was a sweet smile upon her face, wliichseemed to say, "weep not for me, but rather re joice that now nij trials and sorrows are ended. I go to receive mat crown wnieu my Saviour holds out for me and to enter the mansions ol rest preparea ior ineiusi. """"'" ,u" ' i, r . : And I could but think how expressive . , iig. , Y she - o o has gone to that bright world, where she will see no more sorrow and leel no more pain, but will enjoy the ptesence'of her Saviour, and sing his praises through a world without end. As we followed her to tue cold and anew, tomo, it eeemeu na if we were going to deposit there our all for whose loss do we feel so keenly as a mother's t . She is Always at home. And if we are in trouble, to whom do we un burden our bosoms ! And who is the m08t rea(jy (( sympathize in all our trials?

' Punishing Children. '' V'v The extreme, last resort is the personal infliction of the rod ; and while the juve nile nature is what it is, this must in most instances, be employed, if a man will not spoil his child. There is a sickly senti mentality prevalent with some on this point, perhaps the result of an excessive use of the rod in some injudicious hands, and they will have it abandoned as too horrible. But the most observant know that it is wholesome that the errant one should understand there is one at hand if necessity requires. The use should not be frequent, else it loses its effect, or only develops the spirit of a slave of all things tu be deprecated. But that it is to be the last resort, should be tho rule. The father has a heavy hand and shntild try every other mode of cor rection first. There is a.wondeiCul vir tue, often, in a breakfast on dry bread with cold water in the loss of the piiv ilege of a walk, a ride, a visit, or compa ny, or the sending to bed before dark, or deprivaiion ol the gifts which the oilier members of the circle receive, etc. Nevei, never, however, should a recreant child be shut in the dark closet of the cellar, if a man will not injure the neivous sys tem of a child for life ; and'never should it be punished by being forced to commit portions of the Bible to memory. If a man wishes his child to love that precious volume, its associations should be with all that is pleasant and desirable. Z?r. Ferris. How A Son Stroke Affects Man. The geueial opinion is th'it deaih by sun stroke is yery painful, r but the contrary would seem to be the fact, judging from the following account of the effect ol such a visitation, given by General Sir C J. Napier. He experienced an attack while in Scinde, where the themometer, accor ding to Gen. N. himself, was of as much use to him as it would have been to a boiling lohnter. and wrote as follows to one of his daughters: "The sun stroke Was a staggerer; yet my hope is to die by one. for never can death come in an easi er shape. : I was just deadly sleepy; it was deadly had I been left alone; but the only feeling of the transition would have been a tiredness, like that experienced at being suddenly waked up before time. This was to a degree almost to be called painlul ; then cume a pleasant drowsi ness, with anger that the doctors would not let me sleep. Were it not for others, would that my horn bad then sounded ; so easy, so delightful, I may say ,was the approach ot death. Ihis rseme bles the accounts of men that hare been saved from freezing to death, after having got far down into the dark valley ; so that the excess ot heat and cold produce precisely the same effects.. The Fate or A Flirt. It is very rarely, indeed, that a confirmed flirt gels married. Ninety-nine out of every hun dred old rraids may attribute their anci ent loneliness to juvenile levity. It is very certain that few men make a selec tion from ball rooms or any other place of gaiety ; and as few are influenced by what may be (ailed showing off in the streets, or any other allurements of dress. Our conviction is, ninety-nine hundreths of all the finery with which women dec orate anil load their persons, go Tor noth ing so faras husband-catching is concern ed. Where and how, then, do men find their wives t 1 In the quiet homes of their parents or guardians at the. fire side where the domestic graces and feel ings ate alone demonstrated. X hese are the charms which must surely attract the hiithas well as humble. Against these all the finery and airs in the world sink into insignificance. , ... Tfia DwNiTy of Human Naturb. Wis confess there is nothing that more pleases. us in alj that we read in books, or see among mankind, than such passages as represent human nature in its proper dignity. As man is a creature made up ol different -extremes, ne nas something in him verv ereat and very mean.: A skillful artist may draw an excellent pic ture of him in either ot these views. Ibe finest authors of antiquity have taken him on the most advantageous side. They cultivate the natural grandeur of the soil raise in her a generous ambition, feed her with hopes of immortality and perfection, and do all they can to widen the partition between tlie virtuous and the vicious, by maHrig the difference betwixt" them, as great as between gods and brutes. r JtitFCol. Benton has" avowed himself in favor of, thefcelection, of Rollins, the Emancipation "'and'' American candidate for Governor of Missouri, in preference to Stewart tne Democratic nominee An Irishman being told that the price of bread had fallen, exclaimed 'This is the first time, be jabers, that I e ver rejoiced at the fall of my best friend,' - ? -r 1 :-. : -. 'j l&Oh. how,. up into middle life, and down " among the shadows ' of old age, should ; we ' carry daily ths prayer mothers, taught Us by our cradles ."jjead be not into temptation, (V '': A Wife's I'ower.'' The power of a good wife, is, to a man wisdom and courage, and endurance. A bad one is confusion, weakness, discom fiture, and dispair. No condition is hope less, where the wife possesses firmness, decision and economy. There is no out ward prosperity which can counteract in dolence, extravigance and folly at home. No spirit can endure bad domestic influ ence. Man is strong, but hip heart is not adamant. He delights in enterprise and action ; but lo sustain hiu he needs a tranquil mind and whole heart. He needs bis moral in the cof diets of the world. To recover his equanimity and coihposure, home must baa place of re pose, cheerfulness, peace comfort, and his soul renews its strength again, and goes forth with fresh vigor to encounter the troubles and tabor of life., But if at flume he finds no rest arjd is there met with bad temper, sullenness or gloom, or is assailed with disconten or complaint, hope vanishes and he sinks into despair. -mm 1 New Orleans and the Sabbath. The lower Board of Councils, in New Or leans, voted favorably to a request for the use of Congo Square for balloon assen sions on the Sabbath. The Board 'of Aldermen, by ihe casting vote of the chair man, amended by a provision to prevent ascensions on that day. The , Courier comments severely on what it would call an effort to introduce la Puritanic, dull, dreary, in-door, silent, lugubrious, Bos ton Sunday, and contends that nine tenths of the people approve of "open theaters, military processions, fireman's parades," fec, Sic, on the Lord's day 1 he Creole, on the other hand, contends nobly for a due observance of the Sabbath, as connected with the best interests of the people. x JigrThe commonest and coarsest clocks mark the honrs;.il. is only those which are made with the greatest ' art which mark the minutes. So ordinary minds feel the difference between a simple prob ability and an entire certainty, but it is only the delicate minds which feel the greater or less certainty or probability, and who mark, that is to say, the min utes by their feelings.
