The Number and Prize drawn out are opened and exhibited to the audience, and regis tered by the Commissioners, the Prize being placed against the number drawn.

I may not see their features, Save in memory’s faithful glass, But 1 leel that they are with roe, Each moment that doth pass. I feel them in the promptings Of good, which thrill my heart; I hear them in the voices Which pleasure must impart When the sun beams bright around me, And my soul is full of joys, I then discern the presence Of my two Angel boys. They whisper solace to me, When sorrow's cloud is dark; They tan Hopes failing embera When dwindled to a spark. Their voice is sweetest music, But it greeteth not the ear, The heart alone receives it— The heart alone can hear. As I lay me down to slumber, Peace in my breast doth reign, For 1 know my Angel watchers Amid the gloom remain. Spirit eyes gaze on me, Eyes that know not night; Spirit hands unite to bless ms, Hidden from my sight. Hidden, but 0, happiness! Faith assurance brings!
