&S THE L0S8 OF A TCFK, Id comparison with the loss of a wife, all other bereavements are trifling. The wife ! she who fills so large a space in the domes tic heaven; she who busied herself so nnweariedly for the precious ones around her j bitter, bitter is the tear that falls on her cold clay ! You stand beside her cof fin and think of tbe past. It seems an amber-colored pathway, where tbe sun shone upon beautiful flowers, or the stars hung glittering overhead. Fain would the soul linger there. No thorns are remem bered save those your hands may unwill ingly have planted. Her noble, tender heart lies open to your inmost sight. You think of her now as all gentleness, all beauty, all purity. But she is dead ! Tbe dear heart that laid upon your bosom, rests in the still darkness upon a pillow of clay. Tbe hands that have ministered so untiring ly arc folded, white and cold, beneath the gloomy portal. The heart whose every beat measured an eternity of love lies un der your feet. The flowers she bent over in smiles bend now above her in tears, shaking the dew from their petals that the verdure around her may be kept green and beautiful. There is no white arm over your shoulder, no speaking face to look up into tlio eye of love ; no trembling lips to murmur, " Oh, it is too ead." There is so strange a hush in every room; no light footstep passing around. No smile to greet you at nightfall. And the old clock ticks and strikes, and ticks it was such music when she could hear it ! Now it seems a knell on tin hours through which you watched the shadows of death gathering upon her sweet face. And every day the clock repeats that old story. Many another tale it telleth, too of beautiful words and deeds that are reg istcredabove. You feel oh, how often that the grave cannot keep het. ORIGIN OF BRANDY. Brandy began to be distilled in France about tbe year 1343, but it was prepared only as a medicine, and was considered as possessing such marvellous strengthening powers that the physicians termed it " the water of life," a name it retains, thongh now rendered by excessive potations, one of lite s most powerful and prevalent destroy ers. Raymond Lully, a desciple of Arnold do Villa Nova, considered this admirable essence of wine to be an emanation from the Divinity, and that it was intended to reanimate and prolong the life of man. He even thought that this discovery indica ted that the time had arrived for the con sumation of all things the end of the world. Before the true means of determ ining the quantity of alchohol in spirits were known, the dealers were in the habit of employing a very rude method of form ing a notion of its strength. A given quantity of spirits was poured upon a quantity of gunpowder in a dish, and set on fire. This was called the proof. Spirits which kindled gunpowder were said to be above proof; those that did not set fire to it were said to be below proof. From this origin of the term " proof," it is obvious tbat its meaning must have been deemed .very indefinite. ------ ' An Illinois preacher and one from New England, meeting, the former said to the latter: " I must confess that the Yan kees are smart, for they know how to make wooden nutmegs." ' Yes," said the other, " and they inow where to go to sell them." Another as good occurred at a meeting of the Art Associations. A speaker in argu ing the superiority of tbe French over tbe British painting, said: "The British are careless ; if they draw a spider, ten to one .he will have too many legs ; if they draw a -rose they will to it the leaf of a tulip' and appealing to an Englishman present, asked, "Is it not so ?" " I must admit the fact," replied the Englishman, "but they are pictures intended for transportation to the United States." The British Empire. The colonies of Great Britain cover not less than 3,350, 000 square miles, and to govern and man age them costs the British nation five dollars for every mile. These colonies have an ggrfgate revenue of $55,000,000, and they owe in all the total income of two years and a half. The population is under ten mil lions, of whom five millions are whites. This estimate does not, of course, include India, But if this is reckoned, it results that tbe British Queen reigns over nearly one-third of the land of the earth, and nearly a fourth of its inhabitants.
