Why, you have not called at onr house for a month; where have you been?" "I have been to the sea, Philip, along with mam ma nnd ray little brother and sister, and we had fine sport on tho sands. But when I gazed on the great, deep sea, the vast, and boundless ocean, all that I could say was. Wonderful ! wonderful ! won Uerful!" "I wish I had been with you." "I saw it from a distance, and could hardly be- icvj n was the seaj it looked so much like the sky, i saw it close to me as I stood on the sandy shore; I saw it while sailing upon it in a boat; and I saw it from the high, steep cliff, lookingdown upon it as a uini does irom the air, or an angel from the hea vens, and still, "Wonderful! wonderful! wonderful! was all my. cry." ' "Before I am as old a3 you are, I hope my papa iii iukc me to tne sea. I'Jase to tell me something uuuul li. "It is called the boundless ocean, and wellit may uc' lor wiieiner l looked to the right hand, to the left hand, or strait before me, I could see no end to it. It seemed, Philip, as if it went up in the air a..u inuigieu with the clouds. Some people call it .ub worm oi waters, and no wonder; why all the iua, uuu niiis, ana mountains, and all the land in the world put together, are not ao big as the sea," "UI had seen it, I should have cried out, as yon did, Wonderful! wonderful! wonderful!" "It is called the restless ocean, for it never re mains still a single moment. The tide is alway roll ing this way or that way, or the wind is rnfflino- the water. Morning, noon, and night, it is ever in motion. I dare say you have heard it callal Hm sleepless ocean." "Oh, yes, I have; but there are too many fishes swimming about in it to let it sleep, I should think." "It i3 called the heaving ocean, and it does seem at times to be heaving and laboring with all its strength to lift up its mighty waves. The ships, and fishing boats, and sea-gulls, add much to its beauty. But you will look upon it sometime, I dare say." "Indeed, I hope so,and then I will try to tell you as much about it a3 you have told me." "It is called the sparkling ocean, and if you had ever seen it when the sun was shining on it, and cspecfally when it was rough, and the dashing spray was flying in the air, you would say it sparklad indeed. Sometimes a thousand little wave3 are glistening; somerime3 great billows are shining; and sometimes a part of the waters ap pear a complete flood of glittering silver -and gold." "Aye, that is the very time that I shoo 11 like to see it." "It is called the emerald ocean, on account of the-bcautiful light green color that it sometimes has. IJiaveseenit of all colors of the rainbow, but the emerald green is quite my favorite. You cannot think how beautiful it is. The open sea and the deep blue sea are at times spoken of, but the emerald ocean is a pretty name." "Yes, that it is. How many names the sea has!" 'It is called the billoway ocean, on account of the thousands of billows or waves that cover it. He who would undertake to reckon them up would have a difficult task. The sea has many changes, for in the same day I have seen it calm and stoimy, misty and clear, dark and lit np with sunshine, dimpled with small waves and covered with huge billows." "Well, I must pay a visit to it" "It is called the angry ocean, and it certainly has, in a storm; the appearance of being in a pas sion rising.sweliing, dashing and roaring, all at the same time. If you were to see a ship or a boat upon it when it is angry, you would expect it to be buried in the waves." "Most likely I should." "It is called the foaming ocean, and before now I have seen it half covered with foam. There is al most always a foaming fringe on the shingly beach, a3 white as the driven snow. Once, when 1 was down at the sea-side, two laughing girls were plac ing at conquering, daring one another to stand still till the wave dashes on the shore, and running away before it catches them. Suddenly a great wave came, and the foam of it caught them all, and they were ankle deep in foam." "That would make them remember playing at conquering." "It is called the roaring ocean, and I once saw it as wild, I should think, as water could be. Oh, it was awful to look on the dark mountainous waves as they rose aod fell, with the yawniug gulf between them! The black clouds, as they hung over the deep, seemed almost to rest on the waters; and the foamy billows looked as if they were striving to get at them." "1 should have been frightened at that sight." 'My father says that the sea, in a calm is enough to convince a thinking atheist of his folly; but that the sea in a storm, is sufficient to overwhelm him with terror and remorse, so loudly does it cry: 'The Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods. The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land.' Psalm scv. -5. But I must go now, Philip. If you wish to hear any more about the sea, you must ask me another time. "I shall be sure to want to hear more; but I thank you, a.rthur, for what you have now told me." The Bible. If the Bible is not a revelation from God, then is there nothing in all the universe that can fill the longing scul of man. Then must that deathless spirit, on wing forever, perpetually hover over an abys3 of unfathomable doubt If truth is not .found in this book, where then is she to be found ? In deism ? They tell us that nature's religion is sufficient for all the wants of our race. But where is her solace for that soul that longs for something more substantial than anght that can be found on earth ? somctlrng enduring something that will shine forth in peerless splendor when nature shall heave her last groan. Oh ! where do you find all this in deism ? "What evidence have I from na ture s iiook tnat i snail De at last tound superior to the brute that I shall live when this material structure shall have crumbled into dnst? Is one whatever. For, if bifore the period of my crea tion all wa3 non-existence, how do I know that af. ter the terminus of my mortal race there will net again be an eternal nou-cxistence ? One thing I am iaught from the religion of na- tnre, that " God is love." From this I conclude most positively that he would not create our race. with all our powers and cupacites ofmtnu, without irrantinir us an additional manifestation of his irood- ness telling us something of our destiny when time is no more. But in the universe tbere is no such knowledge obtained if it is not found in the Bible. I couclule, therefore, that this is the Book of God the best gift of a mere ful Father to man. Here "life and immortality are brought to light." ' Blessed be the Lord for his great goodness and wonderful works to the children of men." X. A. O. The little Vagrant I was walking qnietlj along- in a beautiful Jane. A little way before me a large covered cart was standing by the road-side. A horse was feeding near. Two children were playing about on the grass. When, I got np to them, the eldest, a little girl, came and dropped a courtsey. She looked so bright and cheerful that I thought I.should like to talk a little with her, and she seemed qaite.as will- "g w iaiK to me. Her name, she told Eliza. mc, was 'And where do you live, my dear?" I asked. "I don't livo anvwherf. siroi,o c;.u . 'we go. about in this cart with father and motW -Her parents, I found, were awav at thcr-mnrt-M they would soon be coming back, and thon tho horse would be put in the cart, and carry them to another town; and this was the poor child's life! She was nineyears old, she said. and her. little bro ther, who sat by quite gravelv, listening to us, was SIX. "Can you read, my child?" "U no, sir,, nobody did ever teach me." And she looked up in my faceso sorrowfully that I quite" pitied her, and said: ""Would you not like to learn?" "O ye3, sir, that I should!" and I could seethe tears come info her bright eves. I rave her a little book; you would have been glad to see how pleased she was: bhe thought, perhaps, that she could coax her father to teach her for he was able; her mother conld not read herself. "Have you ever heard, mv dear, about the areat God?" "O yes, sir, many a time," "And where is he?" She waved her hand round slowly, looked verv solemnly in my face, and said, "AU arrouudus and every where!" "Does God see you?" "Please, sir, I don't know!" "Not know, my dear! You may be sure that, as he is here, he sees you always, knows ull you do. and hears every word you say." "Does he, sir?" and the poor child looked quite frightened. I suppose she had recollected some thing she had done wrong, and was afraid that God would be angry with her: for she said in a low tone, almost to herself. "Then I must not say wicked words." "0 no, Eliza, for God will be angry if you do, and has said he will punish wicked DeoDle when - . they die, forever and ever." Eliza looked at me now without speaking, full of fear and wonder, but a3 she did not quite under stand what I said; so I asked her: "Did you never hear of hell?" "Xo, sir." "Nor yet of heaven?" "No, sir." , ; "And were you never told of Jesu3 Christ, who came into tho world to save sinners?" "No, sir." , "Would you not like to hear all about this?" "0 yes, sir." And now the tears quite ran down her cheeks. I never saw any one look more anxious and unhap py. For a little while I talked to her; and told her as much as sho could understand about the gra cious Saviour who died for sinners, and said, "Suf fer little children to come unto me;" about God, our gracious Father, who Tvill listen to a poor child's prayer; and about heaven Tvhere all who love him shall meet at last in joy. I was soon obliged to bid her good bye; and as I walked ou, and pray ed in my heart that God would teach and love her I thought of you, my dear children, and gave thanks to our heavenly Father that you are able to learn of him and of Jesu3, and of the way to be happy forever. Are you sorry for little Eliza? I have told you her story, that you may understand how sad it 13 to have a starving, hungry soul. She was starving, for she did not know those things which would have made her truly wise; she was hungry, for she was most anxious to get this knowledge, and full of grief that there was nobody to teach her. Jesus feeds the soul. To know him is wisdom. IIei3 the truth; for if you believe and understand what he ha3 taught, you know all those things "which were so strange and dark to poor Eliza. You have not to say in sorrow, "There is no one to teach me," for Christ is your teacher, and it is all made plain. You learn of God, for JesU3 ha3 told us, when we pray, to say, "Our Father." You learn of heav en, for how often did he speak of that bright world where God's children shall dwell foreverl You learn the way to be saved, for Christ has promised that whosoever believes in htm shall have eternal life. You learn what you ought to do; for these are his own words "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and soul, and strength: and thy neighbor as thyself." The Bible is full of his teachings; it telLs us of all we need, that we may be good and happy; and to every s-tirving soul the Saviour says, Come and learn of me, listen to my words, believe in my love, and you shall never be hungry again. "This is the true bread that cometh down from heaven." Prayer Answered. "While in India, Dr. Judson became intensely in terested in behalf of the Jews, and imparted his interest to an English officer of rank, by whose cooperation 1,000 were raised and prollered to the Baptist Missionary Union, towards the estab lishment of a mission in Palestine. He wrote n powerful appeal to accompany his pledge ; but tl.c plan did not meet with favor. Years passed away. About a fortnight before his death, Mrs. Jcdson read to him a paragraph from the Journal of Bev. Dr. Hague's Travels in the East, from which it appeared that " a tract had been published in Ger many, giving some account of Dr. Judson's labora at Ava ; that it had fallen into the hands of some Jews, and had been the means of their conversion that it had reached Trebizond, where a Jew had translated it for tho Jews of the places that a can did spirit of inquiry had been manifested; and that a request had been made for a missionary to be sent to them from Constantinople," Mr3. Judion, in her relation of these facts, add3, " His eyes were filled with tears when I had done reading. A look of almost unearthly solemnity came over him, and clinging fast to my hand, as though to assure himself of being really in the world, he said, ' Love this frightens me; I do not know what to make of it' ' AVhat?' 'Why, what you havejtist been reading. I never was interested in any object, I" never prayed sincerely and earnestly for anything but it came at some time no matter at how distant a day some how, in some shape probably the last I should have devised it came. And yet I have had so little faith ! May God forgive me ; and while he conde scends to use me as his instrument, wipe the sin of unbelief from my heart J" " If ye abide in me, and my words in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you." tgS-In Christ's humiliation stands our e.valta- tation; in his weakness stands our strength; in hi3 ignominy our glory; in his death our life. fcJrThe Mormon population of Utah is said to have reached 80,000. It ii greatly augmented by immigration from abroad. The Fiddle. With A Heavenly Croat There .is a hamlet no matter where inhabited . r-l L r mainly by the decandanta of the Scottish. Covenan ters,, who have inherited from their fathers not on ly their sturdy, unbending integrity, and whole souled piety; but all their bitter hostility to "tho sinful practices" of the men who wield the fiddle bow, or who join the dance. A young minister had come to settle among them; With a.smile ever upon his countenance. and a kind word for every body, while zeal for his Master's work shone out in every action ho soon drew around him the sympathies and the love of his. humble parishioners. But ere long ha preced ed a change; friendly greetings were coldly return ed; mysterious hints of the awful guilt of ministeri al backsliding occasionally reached his ears knots of men were seen, gathered at the corners of the streets, engagod in earnest conversation, indicating by theirlooks and gestures that the occupant of the humble parsonage, that stood full in view, sup plied the" theme. A vague rumor had begun to float through the hamlet, deeply affecting, in the estimation of the stern old Scotchman, the moral character of their minister. It was heard with incredulity, and in dignantly repelled; but it gathered strength; doubt succeeded to confidence, until the most stubborn incredulity could resist no longer; the un mutable sign3 of "tortured cat-gut;" proceeding from the paisonage itself, reached the eara of that knot of men, and the awful fact stood revealed, that their minister "played the fiddle." Such an enormity could not bo tolerated. The elders of the Church came together in secret conclave, to consult upon the course to be puisued in such an emergency, and as the consumation of their deliberations, a com mittee was appointed to wait forthwith upon the minister at his home, "and deal with him in all faithfulness," and bring back a report of the result of their mission to the remaining elders, who would in the meantime anxiously await their return. During all this time, the pastor himself had not been an unconcerned observer of what was going on among his people; neither was he ignorant of its cause. Conscious of rectitude, he did not think that duty required of him the sacrifice of an exquis ite and holy gratification, to satisfy nnreasonablo predjudiccs that he believed would be removed by a judicious course. From the window of hi3 study he saw the committee of the elders approaching with unwilling steps, and immediately conjecturing the object of their visit, he determined at once to meet the question in a way that they little expect- Meeting them with his usual cordiality, he ushered them into his snug study, and without giv ing them an opportunity to enter upon the subject of their mission, he commenced an animated con versation upon a subject that immediately arrested their attention. Miisic was his theme. He spoke of it as an aid to devotion-rof its power to subdue the soul to elevate it above the earth to bring it into almost immediate communication with its Creator. He described the venerable Psalmist of Israel pouring forth with the enthusiasm of inspiration those g'.i rious songs of Zion, that ever since have been tie comfort and delight of the people of God, and sweeping with his trembling hands the strings of his harp, until the swelling sound was echoed back from the surrounding hill-tops. Carried away with the ardor of his own feelings lie rose from his seat and taking from a case that stood in one corner of the room a wcllworn violincello, he sang to its ac companiment one of those immortal chorals, so dear to every Christian heart, ami especially to every Scotchman. Possessing a rich full voice, and no little skill in the management of his favorite instru ment, he poured out such a flood of harmony as bad seldom greeted the ears of his speli-bmind listeners. T e stern old men were conquered, conquered by the very weapon that they come to condemn. As the pastor returned the instrument to its accustom ed place, the elders arose and grasped hi3 hand, and without alluding to the object of their visit, they bade him -god-bye." Meanwhile, as time wore away, the romainirj elders, who were anxiously awaiting the return c f their Committee, somewhat doubtful, perhaps, o" the result became impatient of their protracted delay drawing no very favorable augury Here from. At length they entered and resumed their place in the august circle. Somewhat erubarrefw ed at the novelty of their position, a3 envoys wh had failed even to speak of that for which they had been sent, they sat for a time in silence, until one more impatient than the rest exclaimed, "Hae y. dealt wi' the minister, and hae ye destroyed the de'ils,' weapon?"- "Uout awa, mon, wi, your dealiu' indignantly replied one of the Committee; "its naneo'your wee bit siufu' dancing Eddies, but its a great, big fiddle, wi' a heavenly croak. iV. 1 , Musiail Rarieic. A Talc About Idols. Did you ever hear about an idol in a Christian country ? I have. I wa3 once in a meeting where a gentleman rose, and complained that it wa3 Sr . Though there wa3 a church with its spire pointing to heaven and calling the people to the worship c f the true God, and though they bad Bib!? ami Sabbath Schools; yet this gentleman said there were idolj among them. Thi3 is very strange, thought 1. But there was no opportunity to ssk him what he meant, and what those idob were. So I went back to my friend's house, ami w'.-t hs little son Henry came in, who is about eigh .rs old, T said. " Ii'iiry, huve we any Idob Li our land ? ' ' Yes, sir,'' said lie. " What an they," I inquired. " Why, they are things that jm.- p"o like better than they like Gixl," sa:d he. aVh. tL 3 is it then, an.I so ileary uuderciattdj whatitme-rs. I will not say whether he has au idol, but, ny young friends, I am going to ask if you have any. Once a child said to his mother, that he was afraid Whv? . . . j as the little boy thought it hu Or have vou some inenu, very uina ana and lovely, a mother, u futher. a brother, a sister, that you love better tbnn God ? If so then you have an iJof. Or can it be, that some of you even love your school, or your toys or plays better than God ? Then such things are your idols. But is it not very sad to have an idol in your heart instead of God? Most children in heathen countries have never heard of God, and how holy and glorious and good he is, and so they have idols of wood, and brass and stone, and worship thi in. Y-ou have often thought how dreadfnl this is, and how glad they would be to hear of the God and the Bible. Per haps you have been trying to help in sending thia best of all knowleJgc, and have been delighted when you have heard how it reached the hearts of some, and leu them to renounce idolatry and be come the worshippers and friends of Jesus. It very likely never occurred to you, that you could have idols. The thought would have shocked you. And yetit seen-s that this may have been tne caso all the while. If tliere is somethmg that you lovo more than God, then it is true you have an idol, that Ihe heathen child has. Now will yoa not think of this; and while yon continue your efforts for the idolatrous youth or heathen lands be wro that you have no idols in your own hearts, whero (Jod should be supreme, "i on know that Jesus sav " He that loveth father or mother more than roe,' is not worthy of me." And again, in Mother place, he makes it essential to his foltovvem, that they be willing to give their houses and lands, and all thingi, for h'13 sake even life itself.
