A failure in o livinp; tends to obscure much li'it of Christian character, and leaves dark ness where there should be light. Too many canww for rejiroach hinder not a few who bear tho 'hrisliun name from Hliining "us light in the world". In the ruined iltiienoe of multitudes their light rtb well-ui";h put out. A rich Southern oentU man who had been very intimaU; with a clergyman as worldly as himself, often drinking wine snd plnyiii); cards with him, was taken dangerously sick, wheil he was terribly agit-.ited with his c mvictiims as to being nnprepared to die. His physi cian proposed sending for the clergy man to come and pray with him, but this he would not hear, for he had no contidence iu him, and could hardly bear the mention of his name. He had, however, n poor pious negro, servant by the name of- Hen, whom ho hail aometimcM overheard at prayer. "Call fur Htm!" said he, and when the con sistent Christian slave came, his dying master entreated him to pray for him, having more (uiiiliileiice in his prayers than in those of the minister who had not let hi light sliine, but on tho con trary had almost extinguished it by his inconsistencies. It is loo often the case that what are regarded iui little things do much to mar tho character of a Christian pro fessor, and prevent him from laying claim to exemplary piety. Often haa Christian character been sadly injured by lovity aod vanity, frivolity and folly, imprudence and inconsidorateiicsg, im patience and petulance, suspicion Niess and cci)soriusncss; and thus it maybe said that Uie liMle foxes spoil the vine. The muutbs of gaitisayers are thus lilbxl with derogatory utterances, and the Christian name is lamentably reproached. By the exhibition of angry or resentful feelings, many become but dimly shining lights, hi all bitterness of spirit there u, poor nhiuing of Heav enly light. Acerbity of temper is asso ciated with groping as in a shadowy way. JenJotisness is its dimness of light, fault- Ii tiding is as gathering dark ness, grumbling is as evening's depart ing twilight, croaking is as midnight. Among light-obscuring inconsisten cies, want of tniliit'iilnoss is tjuite prom inent, and tliis bintleraiice to exemplary piety appears in various forma. By dcliivii m y in fulfilling engagement, a repniafioB fur truthfulness maybe lost, and religions imluencc thereby greatly crippled. The wont of a professed Christian mionld be sacredly kept, or lie can not shine as a light in the world. In all that is said and dune, there nhould be the transparency of sincerity and lidolitiy no that the contidence and respect of none may be lost. ( " Thoi ami!

Unhlcn Hide. Lay Bare Your Heart. [Psalm Ixil 8.] In approaching the Lord in prajer He desires not the flippancy of lip ser vice, the statcliness of oratory, or the 1 recision of prescribed forms and mem orized sentences; but He asks thai they who worship Him shall worship Him in spirit and in truth, that they shall disclose the inmost secrct.s of their nat ure in His sight; that they shall reveal to Him the i t ill emotions of their hearts, their sorrows, their burdens, their trials, their afllictinns, their temptations and all the deep emotions thai possess their souls. All these aro not to be suppressed, disguised, concealed, hinted or inti- mated, but they are to be poured out before the Lord into the ear of Him who is touched with the feeling of our infirmities, who wa tempted in all points like an we are, who atllieted in our atllictions, and w ho shall say to those who have helped or harmed Hia weakest, feeblest child: "Ye did it unto Me." Why need we shut np in our own bosoms our most sacred thought? Why need we seek to hide from our Heavenly Father those feelings which His own Spirit hath begotten within us? Why should wt; be ashamed of the "broken anil contrite heart." which Ho "will not despise," or the tear of pen itence, which is so precious in His nig lit? Let us take courage at His gracious in vitation, let us come boldly to the throne of grace; let us pour out our heart before Him, assured that "the eyes of tin; Lord are over the righteous, and His ears are open to their ciiis." The Christian. His Faults. Dr. M. D. Huge, of Richmond, Va., tells of two Christian men who "fell out". One heard that the other was talking against him and he went to him and said: "Will you be kind enough to tell me my faults to my face, that I may profit by your Christian candor and try to getiiid of them?" "Yes, sir," replied the other, "I will do it." They went a.sid", and the former said : "Before you commence telling what you think wrong in me, will you please bow down withiue and let us pray over it, that my eyes may be opened to see my faults as you w ill tell thein? Y'oti lend ill the prayer." It was done, and, when the prayer was over, the man who hail sought the in- terview said: " Now proceed with what yon have to complain of in nie." But the other replied: "After praying over it, it looks so little that it is not worth talking about. The truth is. I feel now that in going around talking against you I have been serving the devil myself, and have need that you pray for Me and forgive me the wrung 1 have done you." Dr. llogu tells lite story very well, anil here and there in almost every community is a man or w oman w ho might protit by it. Itclty t'o.s Jlcralil. CHOICE SELECTIONS.

How Eight Children Were Hrunght Up by the Neighborhood. j I ' ! I I ' j ! i i I j ! ' j I I I "My father tlied when I was three in hi t Iih oi l, and my mother when I waa a year and a hall," saitl the pretty young sclio d-teacher. She and two of her oldest girls were having a little chat tngethcrat noon. "Why, who brought you up then?" asked ontt of them wonderingly. "The neighborhood." "Why, Miss (Jove, what do you mean?" cried the girls together. "dust what I say; the neighborhood brought m ' up. and not only me. but niytwo brothers and my ie sisters there were eight of us iu all." "lint, how could the neighborhood bring you up; 1 never heard of such a thin"-.'' "Nor I." "Well, I'll tell you about it." said Mi-s (luve, laughing, "I guess there'll , be time enough. You sec, alter father died, mother had a pretty hard time to I gel along, but she w is a very smart, i courageous woman, and she managed to keep us all comfortable. Sheowned ourlillle house clear, and, uilh our cow and bens and garden, we had nearly enough to eat. Then she used to leave the y oungcrchihlren iu 0'iarirc of the ohler ones, and go out to do days' work for the iieio-hbora. TI i were go id. honest, kind-hearted coun try people, who make the lies! neigh bors in the world, ylie had a good faculty about patching and mending, and making our clothes last, and wt gut along vi ry well till she took cold and died, very suddenly, of pneumonia. TI eu the outlook w as pretty bad. Tin-re wevire eight of us, the oldest only fourteen, with nothing in the world but a bil of a house, and a cow ii ml a few lieihs, besides our li'tle patched ijai ineiits. "There were no relatives li ing to do anything for us; we were all alone. Of course I was loo young to remembei :inythinr of this, but 1 tell it as 1 heard it afterward, l'eople t.-ilketl of .sending us all, except my oldest sister. Annie, and in y o'd st brother. Frank, who, they thought, might go to live in fami lies and work for their board, to the almshouse. We would be kept there until we were able to work. I don't know how this plan ciinie to be changed, or which of those blessed, the one which good neighbors started was linally adopted. " My very lir.st recollection of any thing of the whole matter is centered In a sweet, pretty young girl, w hose name was Agnes Dean. But I did not know her by that name at all; I always called her iiiainina. Thnt word, to this day, is always associated in my mind with a fair, slender young girl, w ith beautiful yellow curls hanging down her back, and the mildest, rosiest, sweetest face. I can remember walking with her, holding tight to her hand and looking up at her. Long before that, they tell me, she used to drag me about in a little carriage, anil rock me and tend mo every minute she could get out of school. She was my sister Annie's friend. Poor Annie had everything she could do to keep the house tidy, and cook. She had nose wing or mending to do. One of the neighbors looked out for each of us, sunt we were well anil tastily clad. Agnes Dean and her mother made my little things. I can renu mber some of their now; they were nicer than my own poor mother could have got me, I suppose. There was a little pink cashmere hood, trimmed with swansdown, whicli I had one winter, and there was an embroidered blue dress, too. I don't suppose all the other children fared piite as daintily as I, perhaps. I was the youngest, and that may have made some dilleivnce: then the Deans were well-to-do people. But all of us had cnoui'h. Then, every week, the neighbors, by twos, took turns in cooking for us. Each Satur day night great batches of cookies and pics, loaves of bread and a big piece of roast meat, came to our house. They lasted ns over Sunday and far into the week if we managed prudently, and we were all well instructed in prudent management by the neighbors. l'er haps, on the w hole, w e received mure lasting benetit from their good advice than we did from their nice food and their warm dresses. "I have heard a good deal about its being a poor plan for children to have many musters, but it certainly worked well in our case, and we are none ( tis any the worse for it. I suppose these neighbors must have been actuated by so much loving kindness and unselfish charily that they made wise rules. They all seemed to agree ill them, too; perhaps they consulted before making them. One rule, which I remember, was: three cookies per day, and no more, for each child. Another was: to take otTour best things and hang them up i old nicelv in the closets, and pill on our ones, when we came home from church Sundays. When we wi re very naughty, and it came to the neighbors' knowledge, we Were punished. My sister Annie had too gentle a disposi tion to make much of a disciplinarian, and we met with about all the retribu tion for our misdeeds away from home. "I can remember very well being culled into a Mrs. Simmons' one night, on my way from school, and being treated to a little switching with a twig of birch. 1 had llatly disobeyed uiy sister Annie iu the presence of one of the neighbors, and Mrs. Simmons, be in; told, had taken the matter into her own hands. After I had been whipped she kissed me, and told me, with tears in her eyes, that sic did it fur my guod, because 1 hadn't any mother to U-ach me, and she wanted me to grow up to be a good woman. "We went by the name of the 'neigh borlu o I children'. Ki cry hotly for half a mile Hi'ound seemed to have an in terest ami proprietorship in us, the young as well as the old. 1 remember one funny thing whicli happened in school. One of the little buys was leasing brother Charlie, when another boy, a mere mite himself, stepped up indignantly with: '1 should ihin k you'd know better than lo plague one of these children, Willy Tompkins.' "Tho neighbors never deserted us; we wuie the neighborhood children till we were children no lunger and able to do for ourselves, fine after another grew up and found a ph'ce iu the wurld.

If there is an older gun in town it is at perfect liberty to come on deck as soon as .lie history of this aged piece given. "The gun," says Uncle Jini mie, "was brought from England by my grcat-great-grandfathttr, William Harris, about the year 1070. lie left to my great-graiiilfnthcr, Robert Har ris, who was born in 101(4, and who iu turn left it to my grandfather. James Harris, who was born in 17'.'2. By him it was left to mv father, Nathan Harris, who was born June 7, 1771, and by him it was left to me. 1 was born iu Iti'Jll, but you don't want to let it get out. The old gun was lost in Virginia during the war, and fell into the hands uf mall named Robert Brown, w ho knew how highly I prized it. He died sud denly, and the gun was sold as a part of his estate, the widow not knowing was mine. It was bought by a negro for three dollars and a hall, and 1 was tor years trying to locate it. On my last trip to my old home in Virginia found the gun in the hands of a man named Fh tcher and gave hi lil eleven dollars for it. I would not lakeathou saiul for il to-day." The gun was originally nearly six feet long, bill forty-three years ago Mr. Harris bail eul oil' and changed from a Mint and steel to a perciis-ion lock, lie is now having it appropriately inscribed with a brief history of its career. Last April it was owned by a gentleman of Cul pepper County, Ya., named Fayiie. who wcnl hunting with the old gun. lie had to cross Hazel River iu a boat, and after he crossed the river and was going up the bank lie fell, the gun liivd and shut him through the leg. He bled to death where he fell. He w as found there dead the next morning ly ing his ow n blood, and the family got rid of the gun soon afterward. ---Hiini ( U t.J t'unsii'ution. MOUNT WHITNEY.

Considering it not prudent to approach any nearer that night, we lay to till morning. We then approached to within about the distance of two miles. I have not words to express my wonder ami surprise at its changing i splendor. Eruptions take pkice every I one or two minutes, changing its n- 1 pearance every second, like a dissolving view. I can only say it was oin'of tho most awfully grand sights I ever wit nessed on the high seas.
