Eo! it conns bv lcpe attended." And the century has not changed tho truth thus expressed, nor diminisheel its strength. As each year closes wo stand ever ready to greet the new-eoiner with glad words and cherry smiles, and to indulge in anticipations scarcely dampened, but for the? moment, by tho stern fae-t that the past has often brought to us sorrow and disappoint ment. As lss;5 js passing from view we linger over the memory of dear faces, which gladdened us one littlo year ago, now gone; of hopes, so lately bright, now shattered forever; of for tunes changed; of sorrows unknown before; and while memory lingers shadows thicken around tho heart. Jhtt with the first joy-bells of the new year hope awakes as fresh and bright as if it had not lately almost died; and the kindly greetings exchanged, tho hand in friendship given, turn the tido of sorrowful and useful recollections, and give courage to go forward cheer ful ly into the unknown realms of another year. Tho good wishes which it is tho custom to express on Xcw Year's day arc often positively helpful, and always tend to brighten life. Let lis not bo sparing of them a3 we step upon tho threshold of 1881.
