BT JAMES O." CLASK. ' ' -
Leona, the hour drawcth nigh,
Tiie hour we've waited so long,
'For the angel to open a door through the sky,
That my spirit may break from its prison and try
Its voice in an in Unite song.
Just now, as the slumbers of night
Came o'er me wit.li peace-giving breath,
The eurtaiu, half-lifted, revealed to my sight
Those windows which look 02 the kingdom of
That borders the river ot death.
And a vision .fell solemn and sweet,
Bringing gleams of a morning lit land :
I saw the wf te shoxe Vhic'i the pale waters beat,
And I heard the low lull as they broke at their feet
Who walked on the beautiful strand.
And I wondered why spirits should cling
To their clay with a struggle and sigh,
"When life's purple autumu is better than spring,
And the soul Uies away like a sparrow to sing
In a climate where leaves never die.
Leoua, come close to my bed,
And lay your dear hand on my brow ;
The same touch that blessed me in days that are
And raised the lost roses of youth from the dead,
Can brighten the brier moments now .
"We have loved from the cold world apart,
And your trust was too generous and true
For their hate to o'erthrow, when tiie sianuei
"Was rankling deep in my desolate heart,
I was dearer than ever to you.
I thank Thee, Great Father, for t'.iis,
That our love is not lavished hi vain ;
Each germ, iu the future, will blossom to blis:
And the forms that we love, and the lips that
Never shrink at the shadow of pain.
By the light of this I am taught
That mv laoor is only begun : .
In the strength of this hope have I struggled 1;
"With the legions of wrong, till my armor has
The gleam of Eternity's sun.
Leoua, look forth and behold,
From head, and from hill-side, and deep
' The day-king surrenders his banner of gold,
The twilight advances through woodland an
And the dews are beginning to weep.
The moon's silver hair lies une.irled
Down the broad-breasted mountains away;
F.'re sunset's red glories V.gaiu shall be furled
On the walls of the west, o'er the plains of tht
I shall rise in a limitless day.
1 go, but weep not o'er my tomb,
X..r i.Iant wilii frail iiower the sod;
T!,.-n iniDinr roses too sweet for Us gloom.
And lif where the lilies eternally bloom
Iu the halm-breatiiing gardens of God.
Tet deeply those memories burn,
Which bind me to you and to earth,
And I have sometimes thought that my bc'u
In the bowers of its beautiful home to return,
And visit the home ol its birth.
'Twould ever be pleasant to stay.
And walk bv vour side to the last ;
"But the- laud breeze of heaven's beginning to play
LLe's shadows are meeting eternity's day,
And its tumult is husked hi the past.

That is gathering now, ever be
Ton dark for vour faith, you will long lor relief.

Advice to ax Apprentice. 1. Seize

ions. 3. To whatsoever occupation you may be

courteously to every one.

Max. Every man is a Republic in minia
ture, although very limited in its parts, yet
very difficult to govern. Each individual is
a lftle world of elements : and having lif j
like the brutes, and reason like the angels, it
seems as though all were happily united in
him. lie can traverse the vast universe ;
comprehend the present, past and future ; in
him are the principles of light and darkness;
in him also are united the most extraordinary
elements and most incompatible qualities.
Coxtextion. I never loved those Salaman-
'ders that are never well but when thev are in
the fire of contention. I will rather stiller a
thousand wrongs than return one; I will suf
fer many ere I will complain of one, and en
deavor to right it by contending. I have
ever found that to strive with my superior is
futile ; with my equal, doubtful ; with my
inferior, sordid and base ; with any, full of
unquietness. Bishoj) Hall.
Insects. It appears by the proceedings
at a late meeting of an agricultural society
in France, that certain learned cultivators
there, have met with great success in the use
of coal tar and phenic acid, in protecting
' plants and vegatablcs from insects. Three
per cent, of the tar mixed with earth, and
placed about grape vines, had cansed abun
dant crops, when without it the fruit was
Petrolejjm in South America. The
petroleum beds of the province of Irejrey,
South America, have been examined, and it
is found that for the distance of 25 leagues
the beds abound with the bituminous mat J
ter which yields kerosene. I rom the experi
ments thus far it ia found to be very pure
and not giving that offensive smell usually
found with kerosene.
The printer is the master of all trades.
He beats the carpenter with his rule: and

Sir Isaac "Newton's nephew was a clergy
