misery, or j??v, ami ireails as heedlessly
upon the opening blossoms of youth and
innocence, as :ip >n tli ? ashes of malignant

upon the cheek of beauty, and it is pale.
Touched by his wilheinig hand, the conqueror
is silent, and li< s down beside his
vassal; empires become their own ruined
monuments, the traveller ponders vainly

fainting echo of their splendors, and it is
in tuin forgotten. Nature itself yields a

Anticipating the future from the past,

entf And knowing that from the chaos

how should we school the heart in
virtue, ami fortify the soul with all that
.ran enable it to sustain the various ordeals
through which it must pass? Prudence
seems to suggest that the morning of life
should be devoted ivilli all its energies, to
providing aliment, both moral ami physical,
for m ?r" helpless'years. With iis increasing
infirmities, the body demands
protection and comfort; and the immortal
spirit should early make the primary advances
toward that wisdom, knowledge
and virtue, which through eternity shall
ever be expanding to its desires. But let
us reduce our views to the present exis
tence, ami consider tlie advantages ? f w i* 11

as the one, who making amusement his
only employment, heroines lite victim of
licentiousness or disease. Providence designed
us neither for anchorites, or debauchees;
although the first is certainly
preferable to lite last, and least obnoxious
to happiness or the Deity. A gulden mean
* should he adopted. I shall illustrate my
animadversion with a picture drawn from
a career of Cl ime and lolly; and elucidate
by another what I conceive to be a character
combining equally goodness, greatness,
and social happiness.

The Sarbatii.?The following is an oxtract
of an interesting letter from Sir Matthew
Hale, to his grand children. The
testimony of that learned and upright Jurist,
to the good effects resulting from a
strict observance of the Sabbath, cannot
be unimportant. The original is deposited
in the British Museum. It was first
published in the Christian Observer, in
London, 1813: ?
*' I will acquaint you with a truth, that
i above forty years experience, and strict
observation of myself, hath assured'v
taught mc. I have been near forty years,
a man as inuch conversant in business, ami
that of moment and importance, as mo-i]
nit-1.; and I assure you, I was never under
any inclination to iuoalicisui, enthusiasm,
or superstition.
"In all this time, I have most iirlustri

temporal business, in be done nr performed
aflcrwnrds; though surli forecast were
j.ist as fair a prospect as could be effected,
yet I have always b? e i disappointed in the
effecting of it, or in the success of it. So
that it grew almost proierbial with me.
when any importuned me to any secular
business that day, to answer them, that, if
rife; *
lilt* y suspected it to succeed amis?, the

that day. And I his was so certain an oli
serration of mine, that I feared to thin
of an) secular business that day, hecaus
iliu resolution then taken would be disati

"That, always, the.more closely I ap
plied myself to the duties of the Lord'
jday, tlie .nore happy and successful wer
j inv htisiness and employments of the iveel
j following. So that I could, from the loos
or strict observance of that day, take a jus

though I borrowed not one minute frun
the Lord's day. to prepare for it, by studi
or otherwise. I'm, on the other hand, i
I bad, at any time, borrowed from thisdui
any time for mv secular employments, |
found it did further me less, than if I hut
let it alone; and therefore, wlirn soim
years experience, upon a nmst aiteutiv<
and vigilant observation, had given mi

The Harvest Moon.?There are feu
persons probably, who have not perceivei
annually, in the month of September, tha
the moon rises on six or eight suc.Tessivi
nights apparently about the same time.?
This annual pecit iarity in the mooh's ri
sing was observed bv tlie ancients lont
before astronomers were able to explaii
the cause of it. On account of I lie run
venient light it afforded them in harves
time, it was called the Harvest Moon; ant
that in October (for a similar pec.uliaritj
is then observable) the J-|toiler's Moon.?
The cause of this peculiarity in the ri~in?
of the moon in September and October h
now perfectly well understood, ami it i
