Brother, kneeling late and early, Never working praying ever Up and labor work is prayer, Worship is in best endeavor. Days and nights not given to service, Turn thy life to feiuiul waste; Be no laggard be no bluggard, Live not like a man disgraced. See Creation never resteth. Ever God creates anew ; To be like Him, is to labor, To adore Him, is to do. Do thy test, and do it bravely, Never flag with under-zeal, Thia is writ as Scripture holy, Thou must either work or steal. None have mandate to be idle; Folded hands are vilest crime; God's command is labor-worship, In thy youth and in thy prime. For I preach the newest Gospel, Work with hand and work withhtart; Work the Ht-avens are working always. Nature reads a text to art. Suns become the sires of Systems, Planets labor as they roll ; And the law of their Celestial, Is a law within thy soul. From thy nerves at each pulsation. From the mystery of sleep, Comes a lesson a monition, Whose significence is deep. Rightly read, and fitly heeded, It w ill whisper to thy breast "Thou art clothed around with beauty. And an angel is thy guest." But the beauty worketh, striveth. And is leading thee apace To a future, whose foundations God hath planted not in space. Oh, the angel how he helpeth! Hinder not by act of thine ; Lagging limbs, or heart aweary, Mar the work of the Divine. Be a workman, 0 my brother Higher worship is there none; "With its hymn cf work-devotion, ' -Nature is one choral tone. As I read the newest Gospel. When the spade divides the clod. When the ploughshare turns the furrow. Men in prayer strive with God. Pray "The rarly rain and latter, Lord, withold not from our toil; Fructify the st ed we scatter, With this worship, in the soil." Say "No slothful invocations From our lips our lives profane; Tie have kept the old commandment. Taking not Thy name in vain. 'But they break the old commandment, And invoke Thy name with sin, Who, their idle hand uplifting, Unearned good would garner irx "We have new interpretation For the old instruction ask; But he asketh, most who tasketh, Sinews, to perform his task." As I read the newest Gospel, There is nothing fixed and tstill ; Constant only in mutation Is God's law of Good and III. Time was, w hen the tongue's petition Wisely wrestled with the skies; When the "flames, that curled on altars. Made accepted r-acriilce. Time was, when the crowd exalted Priests above their fellow-men ; But that worship is departed. And doth not return again. Ever working ever doing, Nature's law in Space and Time ; See thou heed it in thy worship ; Build thou up a Life sublime, Every idleness blasphemeth In its prayer in its praise ; How shall Heaven accept his incense, Who is idle all his days? - Be a workman, O my brother: ; Trust not worship to the tongue ; Pray with strenuous self-exertion ; Best by hands are anthems sung. Every where the earth is hallowed, Temples rise on every soil In the forest in the city And their priest is Daily Toil. Cou Mat.

A. j Just as I was sighting one of the guns of my battery on the first day of the attack, I heard my name called by one at my side, and look ing up, I saw G , a young midshipman, whose activity and officer like conduct I had noticed at the time of our landing, when he had charge of a cutter which aided in putting us on shore. He 6eemcd very much excited, his dark eyes were flashing with emotion; his face was dead ly pale, and yet there was something in his look as he stood boldly upon the parapet of my battery, that told me it was not fear that paled his cheek. Though shot and shell came bursting through the darkened air, he stood un moved like a sea-girt tower amid the storm, gazing cityward. "What do you want, G ?" said I, when I heard his voice and at the same time stepping clear of the recoil of my gun, when the artil leryman advanced with his match to fire it. "For Heaven's sake, don't fire yet!" shouted he as he t prang from the parapet's front and glancing along the sight of the gun, then seiz ing a crow, and with the strength of a Her cules heaved the breach cf the gun to one side, so that the shot that I aimed with care at one cfthc largest and finest looking buildings in the city, over which waved the national flag of Mexico, would fly wide of its mark. "What mean you by this strange conduct, sir?" said I, sternly, not liking this interference with my orders. "Wait one instant, till I have fired, and I will explain!" said he, meanwhile sighting the gun. The next moment he snatched the match from the man who stood near him and fired. Springing upon the parapet to watch the ef fect of his shot. I saw it dismount and render useless a gun on the enemy's wall, which had annoyed us very much all the morning. He smiled when he saw my look of gratifi cation at this unexpectedly successful shot, and then, more camly than he had spoken before remarked: v. , "Lieutenant, forgive ma for interfering with your duty, but your gun was aimed at a spot which I had come hither to desire you to spare. You see that palace with the flag flying at which you were aiming?" "I do," I replied, not knowing which way led the drift of his remarks. . "For the love of Heaven spare that house? I care not if every other iti the town is blown to atoms, but do not destroy that one!" " What is your reason, sir?" "That is the palace of Don Ignato de Comil la, a noble Castillian, not a Mexican " "There are Mexican colors flying on his house-top." "Oh, it is only because he is brave, and he sides with the Mexicans because he resides amongst them now but you asked my reasons for wishing to spare that house. Hear it. My bethrothed, Anita de Corrulla is there, and, oh God! to what danger is she exposed! Lieu tenant, do not deny my request spare that house; think of the agony which I must feel in knowing that she, my love, my very life, is there protected only by walls which crumble at every shot." "I will, and aim elsewhere," I exclaimed, for indeed I felt for the poor fellow. "Thank you, dear Ramrod," said he. "I have been to all the batteries but the mortar on the extreme left, and at the risk of being laugh ed at, have begged all to spare that house, and all have promised me to do so, and if, when we storm that place, I can be first over the walls, and reach the door before the others, 1 may yet save her from the fearful perils which now environ her." "I hope you may," said I, shuddering, as I thought of the fearful excess which must inev itably occur if we stormed the town; the ex cesses which the madness of victory and the desire to revenge fallen comrades ever leads ev en well disciplined soldiers to commit. Again he warmly thanked me, and turned to goto the battery he had not yet visited. I passed along the line of guns, and directed my men only to aim at the enemy's guns, and es pecially to spare the house which G had pointed out; but what were my feelings, when in the act of pointing it out to one of my gun ners, I saw in its place nothing but a cloud of smoke and dust. I knew at once that a bomb had struck it, and from the look of things fear ed the worse for my young naval friend, es pecially when as the dust and smoke settled I saw the flag gone, a large part of the wall fal len, and the palace a perfect wreck. The bomb had been fired by the morter battery, which he had failed to reach in time to prevent it. I continued on in my duty, and a hot time, indeed, we had of it. It was almost painful to the fmoked end sweaty face of our wnm- out men, as- they toiled on in the work of des truction; it was sickening to see here and thera a ghastly mass of flesh and crushed bones, which by some huge shot, had been thus trans formed from life and beauty; but soldiers must sicken at nothing in times like these. I saw no more of my young friend G ; yet during this time I had thought of him, and his deep anxiety, and inwardly prayed that fox his sake, as well as for the cause of humanity, she was spared. Oh, it was a harrowing thought, as we fired those showers of shell and shot amongst them, that the innocent, feeble and helpless were even in more danger than the garrison soldiers, who stood behind their embrasures, and ofteu I fancied, and my heart's blood curdled with the fancy, that I could hear the shrieks of the wounded and dying woman that the-pitiful cries of poor children were born down upon the breeze. I could almost see them crushed, mangled, dyiag, dead! Oh God! Eave me from witnessing the bombard ment of any inhabited city, at least, if so, let there be none but men within its walls. When the city was capitulated, I entered with the rest, who were sent to take formal posses ion, and found the street whjfh led towards the quay facing the castle, where we were di rected to march, led directly past the palace which G had pointed out as that of Don Ignatio Corrullo. As I looked upon the black ened walls, I felt a strong anxiety to enter it, and try and find the fate of G 'a bethroth ed, and obtained leave for a few minutes from the captain. I hastily entered through the ruined archway, which opened into the court yard, which always centres a Spanish-built palace, and saw at a glance that G had been before me in his visit. The basin of a large fountain was in the midst, but Gen. Scott hadjCut off the aryiaducts which had supplied the city fountain, and this was dry. By its verge, however, on a broad slab of marble, sat G , and she in his arms. I paused for an instant, as I saw him and the b?autiful foTra which he held, for I thought it indelicate to advance at that moment, but I could not re treat, and there seemed something so strange in his actions, that I could not well tear my self away, Ha held her still and motionless in hisarms; her long black hair fell in dishev elled' masses down upon the cold marble, and over a partly bare and lovely shoulder; and, though it seemed she was looking at him, for I could see her large black eyes were open, still he spoke not, but w ith a fixed and strong looked down upon her. I slowly advanced; he could have heard nty footsteps, but he raised not his head; he did not seem to cara whether friend or foe approached. I bent over him and her. I looked down upon her beautiful face it was as pale as the ' mar lie on which she rested; I gazed in those black eyes; they were lakes of beauty frozen over with the ice of death opan but not lustrous. Hooked down upon her swelling bosom, un covered by the disarrangement of herdress, and a ghastly wound, of black and horrible rough ness, showed how she had died. A piec of iron shell had cloven a rent in her bosom, through which her soul had sped to a kinder world than this. In one hand she clenched a locket. I looked upon it and recognized the miniature of G . Oh, God! what a sight was this! So young, so beautiful, loving and beloved yet gone, gone forever, in such way! I laid my hand upon G 's shoulder, and spoke to him; then, for the fint time he look ed up, and I saw, that in him there was change almost as great as in her. Tale as death his eyes were fixed and strong in their almost maniac glare, his lips bloodless cold big drops of sweat on his pallid brow, oh! who could describe his looks? He spoke not his eyea again fell upon her form, than which a lovelier never was pressed to the bosom of a man. I could stand the scene no longer. I rusht d forthwith and joined my company, instantly sending word to two of G 's messmates where they might find him, and begging them to go to his assistance. The next day I sent aboard of his ship to in quire after his health, and heard, to my sorrow, that he was confined to his bed, from a fever and that feeble hopes were entertained of hi recovery. I learned from one of his shipmates that G had become acquainted with Donna Anita on a former cruise; that mutual love had arisen, been confessed by both parties, and they wero to be united at the close of the war. And this, oh, God! is tear! These are the scenes which the pen of history must record of men who live in the nineteenth century of the existence of that religion w hich lias peace, love j and charity forits mottosand emblems. 1 know j reader, that this is a poor train of thought, and an lncoiisiaiem one tor a soiaier, dui were you to see such scenes as these, you would not won der I should be willing to exchange the swocd ( and uniform for tm priest's gown and prnyf r book.
