1 From the following, which we lake
from tho Bedford Yeoman, wo are
satisfied that the democracy of this
District yill "start off on the right
loot" this time. Vc agreo with' our
eotcmporary, that ".'there ', are many
others in our District who are equally
competent with Mr. : Martin, and
horn the democracy would be pleased
to honor with preferment, j Any of
them, if selected by the Convention,
will be zealously supported as the de

Bright, of our town j wo feci fully
satisfied that ho has nb aspirations

The Reparation
f A sunny morning in the dreary
month of February, 185 , when the
whi tc frost glistened on the ' leafless
trees, and the frozen .spray frowned
on the laughing brooklet as it glided
by with itsgentle murmurings, might
be seen a vehicle passing along, bear
ing a loved one away. . '
I ! Days previouSj'the "modus operan
di" of preparing for college, had
claimed the attention of all tjhc fam
ily. The servants were washing,
ironing, and "fixing,' for the -young
master to leave sisters were busily
engaged jewing and preparing clothe
ing, while the mother more thought
ful of her boj', was getting up some
medicines; and other little , comforts
she thought he mijrht need while al.
sent. Friends were visiting him and
bestowing their parting blessings on
this lovely . youth, whilo the. little
girls and maidens were presenting
him with little keepsakes. All seem
ed lively enough, fill the morning
first alluded to. We were summoned
to! the family altar, to offer up our
mpruing orisons together, we knew
not, but for the last time. While the
aged father with tremulous voice read
5l portion of "holy writ,': our hearts
grew warm in the pleasing promises
entertained thfcrein, but as he held
in praver to-the Great God with
such fervency the one so soon to be
absent, our hearts sanl within us; at
of separation. We
thought of-the chequered scenes he
might have to pass through, ;iud
sighed. But iigain when we looked
at the treasures that await him (if a

, and thought, young
friend you need fear no -evil, for the
"righteous ar'c never forsaken" nor
their seed found begging bread.
Rut to tlie trying moment:
the breakfast table we all take
seats. A blessing is asked, and not
another word is spoken all, all, is as
silent as the tomb. Presently a deep
sigh is heard!, then a large briny- fear
drop is. seen ! stealing down the old
mother's cheeky a devoted sister sits
next and catches the feeling and, sobs,

No mother is there to greej, hin with

to imprint kisses of affection on his
cheek at his incoming'! No kind

Bnt is he alone? No, Jesus is there

while he pursues his daily studies,
while he is quaffing at literature's

"hidden ' manna of God's love," and
drink of the 'waters of salvation,
that make glad the city, of God." ;
