ee A lesson it itself sublime,
so A lesson worth enshrining,
Is this--"I take no note of time,
E save when the sun is shining."
N These motto words a dial bore;
'r And wisdom never reaches '
To human heart a better lore
Then this short sentence teaches. 1
As life is sometimes bright and fair,
And note its bright hours only.
There is no grove on earth's bright chart
But has some bird to cheer it; g
So hope sings on in every heart, Ia
Although we may not hear it;
And if to-day the heavy wing
Of sorrow is oppressing,
Perchance to-morrow's sun will brin.
The weary heart a blessing,
For life is something bright and fair, etc
We bid the joyous moments haste, 1n
And then forget their clatter-
We take the cup of life and taste,
No portion but the bitter, in
But we should teach our hearts to deeme eu
Its sweetest drops the strongest; Ca
And pleasant hours should ever seem
To linger round us longest. he
As life issometilmes bright and fair, etc. oti
Since darkest shadows of the night,
Are just before the Lu1 ug, it
We'll patient wait the coming light,
All boding phanthoms scorning;
And while we're passing on the tide "i'
Of Time's fast ebbing river,
Let's pluck the bloesous by its side, Ie
And bless the gracions Giver.
As life is sometimes bright and fair,
And sometimes dark and lonely, :
Let us forget its pains and care.
And note its bright hours only. o011

to turn up considerably. He wasn't a bad

TEXA.; AND l(ia: C 1:ARACTr:8.-A writer
in the Galveston News claims that Tepams is
not as bad as she is Ia;i:ted:
There is a story of a Quaker who. being a
man ofpeace, would not kill an offenliaug
dog. Said lihe, "I'll aither hit thee, hut will
give thee a bad name. "*Mad dog! mad dog!!
mad dog!!!" Thereupon a crowd gathered
and stoned the poor beast to death. Some
such proceedings has beren g',no over with
in regard to Texas. People have been so
busy giving us a bad na.me that we have suf
fered all the cooseequences of deeds that we
abhored.-Tlhe re are hundreds of thousansds
who regard Texas as a land not iany re
moves from the Society I-lands. where mis
sionary hash is on the bill of fare of every
first class boarding hou3e. Tell them that
Texas is at mn: al country, that churches I
abound. and that Sundcty schools are esta
blished in every village, and they will set
you down as a travelling romnocer. They
think that a cargo of bin i knives would be
a certain venture were it not that
purchaser of the first would use it on
the capt in. of the ship bef.,ro that ole
cer had time to sell a socuend. All sorts of
stories are totl a'bout us, and not a few are
behlieved, And yet Texas is as moral a
State as ever this blessed Union possessed.
It is true that peon the frontier, where law
and law oflicers are unknown,. there are
deeds of vihledoe; but in the settled portions
of the State there is as much order, as much
reverence for law, and as mueh respect for
Ini as iln any ither ase-elti overn which the
