CHMST'ST ENTlWOE INTO JERUSALEM;
r y. r. WiixH. Ho satnipoitUwasaVcolt, and fbdo Towards Jerusalem. flcsidc Mm walked Closely and silently lluTfaithful twelve, And on before him went a1 multitude, Shouting hosannas, and with eager hands nn?'tfi$ l,,elt Barmc,ita thickly in the way. I li unbroken foal beneath him gently stepped, Tamo at its patient dum,t(hd athc song BOf "Welcome to the son of David,'' bur's! Forth frohi a tltVuSand children, and the leaves Of the waving branches touched its silken ears, It turned its wild ejus for a moment back, -And then subdued hyan invlViblehaml, TMcekly trod onward with its'slcridcr'fcet, t The dew's last sparkle from'tho grassha'dgoho As he rode up Mount Olive. The woods 'Throw their cool ultadon's directly to the west; And tho light foal, with quick'dnd toiling Wcp, And head bent low, kept up its unslackrned'way 'Till its soft namc-Was'liftc'a'btltohYd Sent o'er the mount from Jordan. As he reached ;The summit's' breezy pitch, the Saviour raised His calm blue cyc-thcrc stood Jerusalem. Eagerly ho bent forward, and beneath His mantle's passive folds, a bolder line Than the wont slightncss of his perfect limbs (Bctraycd the swelling fullness of his heart. ;Thcro stood Jerusalem! Hovvfair she looked1 Tho silver sun on all her palaces, And her fair daughters 'mid the golden spires Tending their terrace flowers; and Kcdron's stream lacing tho meadows with its silver band And wreathing its mist rmintlc on the sky "With the morn's exhalations. There shrUood, Jerusalem, the city of Ids love, Chosen from all the callh; Jerusalem, That knew him not, and had rejected him: Jerusalem, for whom ho came to die! 'IPhe sTioUtS redoubled fromathousand lips AStho fair sight; tho children leaped and stuic Louder hosannas, tho clear air was filled With odor from the trampled olive leaves But "Jesus wept!" Tho loved disciplo saw 'His master's tear, and closer to his side Ho came with yearning looks, and on "his nedk The Saviour leaned with heavenly tenderness, And mourned, "How oft, Jcrnsalem! would I Have gathered you, as gatherdth n'hen Her brood beneath her wings but yc would not!" Ho thought not of the death that.he should die; He thought not of tho thorns he know fnusl pHc'rce Ilia forehead -of 'the buffet on the check 'The scourge 'the mocking homage, the foul scorn! Gcthsemane s'tood out beneath h'is eye "Clear in tho morning sun; und there, he knew, While they who '-could not watch with him one hour" Vcro sleeping, he should sweat great drops of blood, Praying the cup might pa3! And Golgotha 'Stood bare and desert by tho city wall; And in its midst, to "his prophetic eye s Rose tho Tough cross, and its keen agours Vcre numbered all the nails vore in Ifis feet Th' insulting sponge was pressing on his lips The blood and water gushed from his sido Tho dizzy faintness swimming in his brain And,"while his own disciples fled in fcai", A world's death agonrcs all mixed in his! Ah! he forgot all this., He only saw Jerusalem the chosen tho loved the lost! He only felt that for her sake his life Was vainly given, and in his pitying love, Tho sufferings that would clothe the heavensin black Were quito forgotten. Was there ever love, In earth or heaven, equal unto this! PASSAGE OF THE RED SEA. Tho route of the Israelites, and tho place witcrethcy crossed tho Red Sea, are thus discussed in the 'Incidents of Travel" by an American; "Late in the afternoon, we landed on the opposite side, on the most aacrcd spot con nected with tho wanderings of the Israelites, where they rose from the dry bed of the sea, nnd, at the command of Moses, the divided water rushed together, overwhelming Tharoah and his chariots, and the whole host.of Egypt. With the devotion of a pi ous pilgrim, I packed up a shell and put in to my pocket as a memorial of the place; tind'then Paul and I, mounting the Drome daries which my guide had brought down U the shore in readiness, rode to a grove of palm trees shading a fountain of bad water, called ayoun Mousa, or the fountain ofMo scs. T was riding carelessly along looking behind me towards the em, and had ulmdst reached the grove of palm trees, when a hrgc flock, of crows flew out, and my Dromedary, frightened with their sudden whizzing, started'back and threw me twen ty feet over his head, completely clear of lus long neck, ati3 left me sprawling in the sand. It was a mercy I did not finish my wanderings where tho children of Israel be gan flieirsj but I saved my lyyid'at the ex pense of my lia-nds, which sank jn the loose soil up to the -wrist and bore tho marks for more than two months afterwardsi I seat ed mysolf where I fell; and as the stin was just dipping below the horizon, told Paul to pitch the tent with the door" towards the place of the miraculous passage. I shall nevef forgot that suneet scene, and it la tho last I shall inflict upon the reader. 1 wan sitting upon tho very spot where tho chosen people of God, after walking over the dry bed of theflOB, stopped to behold the divided waters returning to their place, and e wallowing up the host of the pursuers. Tho mountains on the other side looked dark and pjtcntiga?-, 99 Jf prfiyd and jon- scions witnesses of tho mighty miracle; whilc'i(thc"8uir'tlesccndihg slSwly 'b'ch'i'nd icm, long after iFh'h'd disappesfctl, left 11 reflected brightness, which illuminated with anialmost supernatural light the dark sur face of the water". uDttt to'rcturn to the fountain of Moses. I am aware that tho'ro is some dispute as to the precise spot whore Moses crossed; but, liaving'rto time for skepticism on sucli inat- rters, 'I began'by'itrakmg"Up-my mind that this was the place, and then looked around to see whether, according to the account given In the Bible, the face of tho country and the natural lain! marks did n'ot Bttstain my opinion. I remember aftcrI looked up to' the head offaie gulf, where Suez or Kcl sumnow stands and saw that almost to the very head of the -gulf, there was a high range of mountains which it would be ne cessary to cross an undertaking which it would be physically impossiblc'forCOO, 000 people, men, women, and children, to accomplish with a hostile army pursuing them. At Suez, Moses could not have been hommcd in as ho was; he could go off into the Syrian 3escrt,"or unless the sea has .1.. i 1 .i.A 1 . i- gruaiiy uiiuugt'ii since uiui iniiu, ruuiui uiu head of tho gulf. But here, directly oppo site to 'where I sat, wai an opening in the mountains, making a clear passage from the desert to the shore of the scs." AN AFFECTING APPEAL. The following touching appeal, is ex tracted from a letter addressed to a distin guished advocate of Atheism, (Mr. Knee land) whose locks arc whitened with age; "I 'cannot believe that a mind 'like yours can 'Walk abroad in this beautiful world, be-1 neath its glorious canopy of light, and not feci, and sometimes -tremble, at those evi dences of Almighty Being and Agency, that flame from the sun, sparkle in tho stars, ceho in the thunder, breathe in the winds, murmur in the waters, ex'ha'.e from the flrfwers, and warble from the groves. Ami I am sure that sometimes in the hour of depression and Sorrow, your desolate spirit sighs for brighter "hopes a"nel surer founda tions, than any on which you can now re pose. You 'iftc beginning to take the downward path of life; the heyday of youth and enterprise is past; you have tasted all that this world has to give; death has again and again invaded your domestic circle, anl every year as age approaches one star after another "will drop from your sky. "To the Christian, surrounded by sha rers of this hope, these loved and parting lights of life glide away to wait his arrival in a purer sphere; to you they aro-siwking to blackness and darkness forever. And each year, your paSSagd to the tomb becomes more desolate and dim, no glimmer of hope arises to cheer, but all around is .darkness, sil'ence, and interminable glotini." If a gentleman wants a wife, ho wears a ring on the first finger of the left hand; if he be 'engaged, ho Wears it oil tho second fin ger, if married, on the third; and on the fourth, if he never intends to be married. When a lady is not engaged, she wears a hoop or diamond on her first linger; if en gaged on hef second; if married, on her third; and on her fourth, if she intends to die a maid. When a gentleman presents a fan, a flow er or a trinket to a lady with his left hand, it is on his part an ovefturc of rgardj sllonld she receive it with tho left hand, it is consid ered an acceptance of his esteem; but if with the right hand, it is considered a refu sal of the oficr, Thus, by a few simple tokens explained by rule, the passion of lovrs ts expesscd, and through tho medium of this telegraph, the most timid and diffi dent man can without difficulty, communi cate his schtlincfits of regard for a lady, and (in case his offer should) avoid experiencing the mortification of an explicit rejection. A Fool. A miller who attempted to be witty at tho expense of a youth of weak in tellect, accosted him with 'John people say that you are a fool.' On this John replied, 'Some thjtlgs I know and sdme I do not know, sir.' "Well, John what do you know?" "I know that millers always have fat hogs.' And what don't you know? 'I dont know whose corn they Cut sir.' A friend in need. A gentleman "unac cuBtonied to public speaking,'' becoming cnibarrasseJ, whispered to his friend, "Quick, quick, give give me a word!" Upon which tho-otherreplied, "Ycsj yes, wlnt word do you want?" npprnrc nv the nEiWfl'fiU'AT. Next Doon to Cajt. D. Gross's Hotel.
