TO MY LITTLE DAUGHTER, MARY E. BALDY.
BY II ICH MOTHER.
Bright and lair thy natal morning,
Eleven yeurs ago to-day,
Came a baby in-life's dawning,
Through earl h's labyrinth to stray.
All the grand and "noble d renin lug
Centered muud they, little one,
The ideal sweetly seeming
In thy future early won.
With thy blue eyes' dreamy wonder
And thy wavy locks of gold,
Looking ever over yonder
Where the pearly gates unfold;
With thy face of baby sweetness;
Baby accents most dlvin,e;—
Years have stole these in their lieot ness,
But the little girl Is mine.
I have watched tbe bud unfolding—
Read each promise written there;
Miiglc gifts far years are holding.
You'll fulfil each promise rare;
Never shull a doubt come stealing,
Through the night or ln the iluy|
No death knell must e'er some pealing
Where my cherished hopes may stray.
I have urged thee, ever leading,
Up the path where Knowledge trod;
Listen to her winsome pleading,
It Will lift thee nearer I iod.
Up, beyond the worlds of splendor,
Leaving curl hly things afar,
Though,tbe cord that leads is slender,
It will reach beyond tbe star.
Little daughter, may no sorrow
Cast Its shadow o'er thy track;
Would Mint ln the great to-morrow
I could bold ull trouble back.
Would that I could bear tbe burden,
Take the pain and meet the strife;
All thy future should be Eden-
Joy's wand should rule thy life.
Yet, howe'er we love our treasures,
Ood hath willed anu it is so,
Each must bear their pain and plea>ure—
Weak or strongly meet their woe.
We can never lift the curtain
That divides the Now aud Then;
Never can be truly certain
Of the destinies of men.
Yet, my darling, blue-eyed daughter,
If thy mother's hand could mould,
It would never tire nor fatter
Until death hud froze it cold.
It would reach beyond the portal.
Into all Ihe great and good,
Until earth should hold immortal
Mary's perfect womanhood.
I will wish for thee all blessings,
In tlie luture's Joy and strife;
Should you meet the world's caressing,
Parity must guide thy life.
Ah! uueridn, we ull cherish
Hopes that rise above the clod;
Mil) thy child-fail Ii never perish,
But be anchored nearer Ood.

An urea of fifty square miles
in the Southern part of our county is
about the extent of a tract of land
knowu as Richland. .Ou this tract as
choice directed, persons have recently
purchased hundreds of acres, others, if
for no other reason it would seem than
for society's sake, have taken from one
to forty acres adjoining each other,
forming in this manner
Whose inhabitants seem as a unit, so
congenial are they in sentiment und
pursuit, and if anything beneath the
sun Is calculated to secure happiness it
must he in forming such communities
as these, where the moderate wealth
of each individual is an incentive to
some exertion; where the soil pro
duces almost everything that soil can
bring forth; where all enjoy the love
liest of climates; where each oue
seems intent not only to beautify his
respective home, but also to cultivate
his neighbor's good will, by means of
that attention and kindness, which is
sure to bring peace and contentment
to the common home of all.
We will not refer particularly to the
beautiful villages of Tustin City or of
Sauta Ana, built upon the same tract
as Orange, but rattier confine our short
description to the latter to which our
experience Is better suited.
THE TOWN OF ORANGE,
(So called from the peculiar adapta
bility of its soil to the luxuriant
growth of the orange) five and one
half miles in a Southeast direction
from Anaheim, is scarcely three years
old, and yet, numbers hundreds of in
habitants. Tlie average attendance
of the graded public school, under the
able management of Mr. Robert Fur
long, numbered the last term over one
hundred. The Sunday School, under
the supervision of Mr. L. J. Lockhart,
a gentleman of wealth and education,
numbers ninety-six attendants. The
building of a new and more commo
dious school-house is contemplated
and will soon be effected; the
school furniture, however, belonging
to the present school building is of the
latest and most approved pattern,
udapted to the best of school looms.
A narrow-gauge railroad connecting
with the Anaheim branch is much
talked of, and the Railroad Company
have already conferred with the peo-
Ele of Orange in reference to the
uilding of a bridge across the Santa
A Orange Hall and handsome
church have beeu erected; a first-class
country store, under the management
of the Grangers; a Postofßce, carpen
ter shop, paint shop aud blacksmith
shop are some of the conveniences to
be found in tlds progressive and ad
mirable colony. The pleasures of po
lite society are not forgetten, and
teachers of music are encouraged and
well patronized. As an evidence of
the literary taste of the people we
would call attention especially to the
THE TRIPLE O. O. 0. SOCIETY
Of Orange, devoted to literature
and music, gave an entertainment
on the evening of tlie 12th inst.
for the benefit of the public school
library of that district which, every
way considered, was a perfect success,
resulting, in a financial point of view,
beyond the society's most sanguine
expectations. From this we might
infer that there exists among the peo
ple of Orange a unanimity of feeling
and a proper disposition to encourage
the efforts of the literary part of their
community. While the object on this
occasion is not by many considered as
of the most popular class, yet from
the interest displayed on that evening
by the people of Orange, nothing
could then have been more popular.
The display made by the O. 0. O. So
ciety was indeed admirable. Let us
stand for one moment among the
crowd of ladies, gentlemen and little
ones who constituted the audience on
that particular night of the 12th, and
listen to the music of the orchestra;
now see the curtain rise upon a gar
den scene, real and true to nature; the
anistic landscape view in the distance,
the sparkling fountain's flow and hear
the music of its waters, as they mur
muring pass away; you will agree j
with us, we think, that it was indeed
"a thing of beauty. Ami now witness
that lady, fair and young, who lends
her presence to the enchanted scene,
and you would add,
"A JOY FOREVER."
And so, delightful Orange, we leave
you, und have nothing said about the
Kant' Ana, that, swelled by wintry
storms, booms around you; nor those
giant ground-swells that mark an in
terval in the space 'twixt earth and
heaven, that patronizing seem to look
uimn you; nor of. tho ocean's roar,
which you may hear; nor its bound
less waters, which from your streets
and houses you may see. No! noth
ing could we say, nor nothing could
we add to your perfection. AH we
might do is to hope that other com
munities, while they may not be
blessed in full measure as you are
blessed, may yet have a little of your
energy, something of your congeniali
ty, and may strangers feel, as we have
felt, the sweets of Orange hospitality.

The Law and the Gospel.
Some believe that Christ died, but
that after all we must do a great deal.
We must repent; we must weep; we
must agonise; but if we think that our
salvation depends on anything we do to
merit it, we might as well be Jews at
once. Salvation has been done and
God sends us word and that is the Gos
pel It is glad tidings. The bjessings
of the Old Testament are contingent
upon an "If." The blessings of the
New Testament are prefaced by
"Therefore." When God's people used
"If," nothing was done—men failed.
But when Christ accomplished his
work, God's people say "Therefore,"
because all thing are done. It may be
asked: Do we make void the Law?
Paul says, we establish it. The things
that the law tried to do, but failed, we
get through grace. If you want salva
tion, or faith, or any good thing, you
are promised it in tlie Gospel.
The law was given that we might
realize how much sin there is in us,
just as a mirror shows us a soiled face
of which we would have been uncon
scious. We would never have felt the
need of a Saviour without a sense of
sin. The Law was our schoolmaster
to bring us unto Christ, that we might
be justified by faith—Gal. iii., 24.
When Moses went down from Sinai to
ask the people if they would have the
new law, they said, O yes, every bit of
it—all the words of the Lord, but it
was not a month before they made
their golden calf.
Even now Christians need many
failures before they will learn how
utterly helpless they are—that they
can keep God's law only when the
heart is right. "The law made noth
ing perfect, but the bringing iv of a
better hope did."—Heb. vii., 19. God
sent his angels as ambassadors—to
proclaim glad tidings to all people.
What was this glad news? "Unto us
is born a Saviour"—not one to help us
save, but a Saviour. He was the Lamb
of God that should "take away the
sins of the world." "On Him was
laid the iniquity of us ajl." This was
His work, and he said, "I have fin
ished the work Thou gayest Me to do.' 1
Now it is not our sin that keeps us
from God, but it is our unbelief that
keeps us from availing ourselves of his
atonement. We may go with this
blessed gospel to the most degraded
being on earth and say. "Your sins
were laid on Christ, and if you will
believe it, they may and will be for
given." Now if Christ has done this
work and sends us word that lie has, if
we don't believe him we can't be
helped. We grieve God by not be
lieving this glorious news of salvation,
just as a child would grieve its mother
by doubting her word. Christ says,
"O trust me, and you shall be deliv
ered from the penalty and the power
Jesus is enough to save. Ask for
nothing else. Look only to Him.
Only believe God's record of His Son,
and you will be more than conqueror.
