THE MORMON'S DEPARTURE. The morning on which Reginald Gloverson was to leave Great Salt Lake City with a mule train dawned beamilully. Reginald Gloverson was a toungaod thrifty Mormon, with an interesting family of twenty young and handsome wives. His unions bad never been blessed with children. As often as once a year he used to go to Omaha, in Ne bra?ka, with a mule train, for goods; but, al though he had performed the rather perilous journey many times with entire safely, his heart was strangely sad on this particular morning, and filled with gloomy forebodings. The time for his departure had arrived. The high-spirited mules were at the door, impa tiently champing their bits. The Mormon stood sadly among his weeping wives ••Dearest ones," he said. “1 am singularly sad at heart, this morning, but do not let this de press you. The journey is a perilous one. but —pshaw I 1 have always come back heretofore, and why should 1 fear? Besides. I know that every night, as I lay down on the broad, star light prairie, your bright faces will come to me in my dreams, and make my slumbers sweet and gentle. Y u, Emily, with your mild blue eyes; and you, Henrietta, with your splendid black hair; and you, Nelly, with your hair so brightly, beautifully golden ; and you. Mollie. with your checks so downy ; and you. Betsey, with your wine red lips—tar more delicious though, than any wine I ever lasted ; and yon, Maria, with y; ur winsome voice; and you. Susan, with your—with your—that is to say, Susan, with your and the other thirteen of vou, each so good and beautiful, will coni” In me in sweet dreams, will you not. dearestists?" •Our own.'’ they lovingly chimed. “we will 1” “And so farewell!” cried Reginald. 1 Come to my arms, my own 1" lie said ; that is, as many of you as can do it conveniently at once, fw I must away,” He folded several of them to his throbbing breast and drove sadly away. But he had not gone far when the traces of the off hind mule became unhitched. Dismount ing, he essayed to adjust the trace : but ere he had fairly commenced the task, the mule, a singularly refractory animal, snorted wildly and kicks ei Reginald frightfully in the stomach. He arose with difficulty and tottered feebly toward his mother’s house, which was near by. falling dead in her yard, with the remark, “Dear mother. I’ve come to die!” ■■• So I see," she said; ‘ where’s the mules?” Alas! Reginald Gloverson could give no answer. In vain the heart stricken mother threw herself upon his inanimate form, crying; “Oh, my son—my son ! only say where the mules is, and then you may die if you want to!” In vain— in vain! Reginald had passed on. CHAPTER 11. FUNERAL TRAPPINGS. The mules were were never louud. Reginald's heart broken mother took the body home to her unfortunate son's widows. But before her arrival, she discreetly sent a boy to bust the news gently to the afllicled wives, which he did by informing them in a hoarse whisper that their “old man hud gone in.” The wives felt very badly indeed. “He was devoted to me,” sobbed Emily. “And to me.” said Maria. "Y es.”said Emily, "he 'bought considerably of you. but not so much us he did o( me.” “I say he did !” “And I sav he didn’t!” “He did!” “He didn't!” -Don’t lo"k at me with your squint eyes!” “Don't shake y 'ur red bead at me!” “custers!” said the black haired Henrietta, cease ibis unseemly wrangling. 1, as Regin ald's fir-t wife, slioli strew- fl overs on bis grave!” ■ No you won’t,” said c-usan, “I, as his last wife, shall Irew flowers on his grave. It is my business to strew !" ■ You shan’t; so there!” said Henrietta. "You bet I will!’ said ciusaa, with a tear suffused cheek. ■ Well, as lor me,” said the practical Betsey, “I ain’t on the strew much, but 1 shall ride at the bead of the funeral procession !” “Not if I’ve ever been introduced to myself, you won’t,” said the golden-haired Nelly; that’s my position. You bet your bonnel-slriugs it is." "Children.” sai.i Reginald’s mother, “you must do some crying, you know, on the day of the funeral; and how many pocket handker chiefs wiii it take logo round? Betsey, you and Nelly ought to make one do between you." •T il tear her eyes out if she perpetrates a sob on my handkerchief.” said Nelly. “Dear daughters in-law." said Reginald’s mother, “bow unseemly is this anger! Mules is five bundrrd dollars a span, and every uteri tucjl mule my poor boy had has been gobbled up by ti e red man 1 knew when my Reginald staggered into the d -or yard that he w-as on the die; but if l’d only thunk to a-k him about them mules ere bis gentle spirit took flight, it would have been four thousand dollars iu our pockets and no mistake. Excuse these real tears, but you’ve never felt a parent's feelin’s.” -It’s an oversight,” sobbed Maria. “Don’t blame us!” CHAPTER 11. DUST TO DUST. The funeral passed off in a very pleasant manner, nothing occurring to mar the harmony of the occasion. By a happy thought of Reg maid's mother, the wives walked to the grave twenty abreast, which rendered that part of the ceremony thoroughly impartial. * * Tbat night the twenty wives with heavy hearts sought their twenty respective couches. But no Reginald occupied those tweniv re spective couches—Reginald would nevermore linger all u.gbt in blissful repose iu I hose twenty re-peciive couches—Reginald's head would ceverm ire press the twen'y respective pillows of those twenty respective couches— never, nevermore !****» In another house, net many leagues from the Hou-e of Mourning, a gray haired woman was weeping passionately. “He died,” she cried. ■ he died, without sigerfyiu', iu auy respect, where them mules went to!” CHAPTER IY. married again. Two years are supposed to have elapsed between the third and fourth chapters of this original American romance. A manly Mormon, one evening, as the sun was preparing to set among a select aparti*ent of gold and crimson clouds in the Western horizon—although, for that matter, the sun has a right to "set" where it wants to, and so, I may add. has a ben — a manly Mormon. I say. Upped gently at the door of tbe mansion of the late Reginald Gloverson. Tbe door was opened be Mrs. Susan Gloverson. -Is this the house of the widtw Gloverson?” tbe Mormon asked “It is,” said Susan. “And ho* many is there of she ?'' inquired tbe Mormon. • There is aboat twenty of her, including me,” courteously returned the fair Susan. "Can I see her ?"’ ■Tin cue!" “Madam," he softly said, addressing tbe twenty di-consclate widows. "1 bare seen part of you before! And although 1 hate a'ready twenty eve wives, whom I respect and tenderly care lor. I can truly say that i never fell love's holy thrill till I saw thee !Be mine—be mine!” be enthusiastically cried, “and we will show the world a striking illustration of the beauty and truth tf the noble lines, only a gcod deal more so— • Twenty-one souls with a single thought. Twenty-one hearts that beat as one.” They were united, they were ! Gent'e reader, does uol the moral of this romance show that—docs it not, in fact, show that, however many there may be of a young widow woman, or ra'her, does il not show that, whatever number of persona one woman may consist of —well, never mind what it shows. Only this writing Mormon romances is con fusing to the intellect. You try and see. Constitution Amendment in the Senate, The resolution for Ibe amendment of the Constitution of the U.

And every one of them Copper heads 1 How General Guam First Entered the Service for the Present War. —Never was the question,"Man proposes, but God disposes,” more strikingly exemplifhd than in the follow ing anecdote of General Grant : At the commencement of the rebellion, an Illinois Representative called upon Governor Yates to recommend to him Grant as a fit person for n i lit ary position. The Governor had received applications front some men over six feet in bight and of muscular frames, and, therefore, curiously eyed the small man, attired in homespun, that stood before him as an applicant. He then asked his grounds tor making the application. "1 was educated at West Point,” said Grant, "at the country's expense 1 served in Mexico, and when 1 went out to Oregon, I thought 1 had returned to the country an equivalent for my education, and 1 resigned. The country is now in trouble, and I w ish to serve her in her need.” Governor Yates had no appointment for him, and he therefore left. A short time after this occurrence, Ibe Governor was very much distressed iu regard to the raising of the quota of the State. He had plenty of offers for officers' positions, but he personally did not know the rainutim of regimental organizations—how many privates composed a company, or how many subordina'c officers there should be in a regiment. In bis distress, lie askrd the Representative if that plain little man to whom be had been introduced knew anything cf those matters. The Repre sentative replied by bringing Grant into the Governor's presence. "Do you understand the organization of troops?” inquired the Governor. The reply was in the affirmative. “Will yon accept a desk in ray office for that purpose? ’ was the next question. “Anything to serve my conutry,” was Grant's reply. And to work he at once went. And but for this, Grant might still be unknown to the world. Bv his energy Illinois became noted for the speed with which she filled her quota. Famous Rivers. —Just bel w the line of Spottsylvai ia county the Mattapony river divides into four branches, each of which takes for its name a proportion of that of the main stream. Thus the most southern is called the Mat, the next the Ta, li e Third the Po, and the most northerly the Ny. and, when united, thev constitute the Mat la pony—pronounced with the accent on the last syllable, and the y sounded like i. All of these names are to be hereafter historical, for on their banks have been foucht the greatest battles of modern times, and gained the in si triumphant victory that has yet been achieved by our gallant army. Tns Rebel General Loxgstrekt. —This ■. Geer, one of the very bravest and most skillful and thoroughly schooled and experienced iu the rebel army, has been the most unfortunate of any general on either side participating in so manv battles He was first d.iveu to the right about by General McDowell at the first Bull Run. and, but 'or Stonewall Jackson and Joe Johnston, his military career w uld then have probably ended. He Lgured as a second ary character In the bloody Peninsula campaign of' 1862. and signally failed in bis notable North Carole a expedition of the same year. He fought tcrribiy but di-as;rous;y to his cwu troops at Autie’am and Gettysburg; he did nothing very remarkable at Fredericksburg; his corps were cut to pieces by Genera! Thomas at Chicamacga. and he was baffled and thor oughly beaten at all points by Genera! Burnside at Knoxville. From his last repulse near the old battle ground of ChanceliorsviUe he is reported to have been borne off mortally wounded. At all events, be is a very remark able example of a great soldier of many battles and manv defeats, end without a single victory that can'be railed bis OWn The Campaign in Virginia. Id the terrific chance of Hancock's Corps on the rebel works, mane grotesque scenes occur red. A few mar be interesting to !be reader. A member of the Irish brigade, after the charge, was seen make vigorous t Sorts to force a cartridge into Lis rifle, which had become ‘■fouled’’ that is. the orifice had. by constant firing, become coaled with powder, rendering the passage cf the bail impossible. his command ng i fficer in an imploring tone, be said, “Share, Colonel. I c n't load ire gun!" “Try agan," replied the Colonel; “try bard. He did try again and again, until the perspira lion s’ood in beads on his face, and at la-t. finding it impossible to force the cartridge home, drew himself up erect, and brought b;s piece to an "order arms." and. with a defiant look faced the enemy. “What are yi.u doing?" exclaimed the astonished Colonel. “Faith," replied the soldier desperately,"l'm gist waiting for a Johnny to come up, till I can knock his brains out wtd me musket I" Whether his desire to annihilate the cerebral organ of some unfortunate “greyback” was gratified, the Colonel did not remain to see. Frequently the muskets of our men were swept from their grasp by the leaden storm which was poured upon them from the rebel line as Ihev advanced, but, undaunted, they still pushed forward like a resistless torrent, using as their weapons stones, broken guns, and every obtainable missile. Many who had no arms were observed to scoop up handfuls of thick mud and dash it into the faces of the men in the works, who. w hile endeavoring to remove it from their eyes, found themselves grappled and matching to the rear. In surrendering, many of the rebel officers stood upon the punctilio of rank, arrogantly refusing to deliver their swords except to officers of equal rank. In the confusion and frenzy of the charge, but little attention was paid to these small matters of military etiquette, and rebel Captains, Majors and Colonels were frequently hurried unceremoniously to the rear by privates, half crazy with delight at their capture. The following named were among the rebel officers captund by General Hanock in the great battle of Spottsylvania, viz : Major General Edward Joi nson; Brigadier General G. \V. Stuart; Brigade r Genera! Bradley T. Johnson, of Maryland ; Colonel Peebles, Gear gia; Colonel Davidson, North Carolina; Col. Hardeman, Georgia; Col. Harrell. North Carolina; Col. Fitzgerald, Virginia; Colonel Parsley. North Carolina; Colonel Havant, Georgia; Major Carson. Georgia; Maj. F.nett, North Carolina; Major Wilson. Louisiana: Major Manning, Louisiana; Col Van Dewen* der, Virginia ; Col. Cobb, Virginia : Colonel Haynes. Virginia; Major Nash, \itginia; Maj. Perkins and Maj. Anderson. Virginia. It turns out that at the lime ot Gen. Han cock's 4 surprise party," May 12th, when he took the enemy in flank and captured several thousand rebels, he came very near including both Generals Ewell and Lee in bis haul, t hese officers were in the salient where the other captures were made, but were warned by the shouts of the supporting line uf our troops in lime to make their escape An official report, up to May 18th, of the casualties on the Union side in the late battles under Geo. Grant, slates thtt 4,000 men were killed, about 25,000 wounded, and 5,000 miss ing—the latter including prisoners and strag glers. it is also slated, on the same authority that not more than ten per cent, have been dangerously wounded, and that a large number will be ready for the field withiu two weeks. “Cari.ton,” the intelligent war correspon dent of the Boston Journal, writes from the battle field in Virginia as follows ; I think that Lee has depleted bis forces elsewhere to make up in some measure his re cent losses here. They fight desperately and holdout with great pertinacity. There are yet bloody battles before us—trials of strength endurance and patience—which will require a nerving up and bracing of all our powers. \\ e have been jubilant, exultant, have magnified success, and without measuring onr adversary at his full strength have taken it for granted that we were going to lake Richmond at once i and clean the rebels out of the Old Dominion. Belter hold on to our enthusiasm for the pres ent. The blows which the rebels are recei ving are wearing out their strength. ft is a question of time and endurance, rather than of military science and skill. Residents of this place inform me that the Stale is nearly exhausted of supplies, that Lee has his main depot of supplies not at Richmond but at GordonsviUe and I.yuchburgh, and that the ope rations of Sheridan in cutting the Cen tral road, while it might embarrass Lee some what, would not cut him off from his base, which is not Richmond, but Gordonsville and Lynchburg. A well informed gentleman says that with the Weldon line ot road in our pos session Lee cannot subsist his army a great while. Time and hard ponnding will break the rebellion. Uur commander has the quali ty of endurance. When repulsed at Honelson his right pushed back,his center ready to yield, he stormed the works with his left and carried them. At Fittsburg Landing, Beauregard thought the victory was won on Sunday night but found he was mistaken on Monday morn ing. At Vicksburgh, after mouths of mortar fi ring, canal digging and the repulse at Haines' BluS, the rebels became jubilant, and settled it that Vicksburg could not be taken ; but one morning they found General Grant on the Big Black, in the possession of Jackson, and them selves hemmed in. After months of siege ope rations came the victory at last. At Chatta nooga, we barely had foothold. The condition of the array was critical, but in a day all was changed, and our banners waved triumphantly from Lookout and Missionary Ride. But enough. W'e shall have reverses, success, bloody fields, hopes deferred, but victory at last. It is better to break the back of the re bellion here into the Old Dominion, rather than in the interior of the South, far from the seaboard. Here we can get at the enemy ; there the possibilities are that he would gel at us. Scene Matrimonial—Wife Triumphant. “Can you let me have money, this morning, to purchase a new bonnet, my dear?" 44 8 yai d by, love.” “That’s what you always say. my dear: but how can I buy and buy without money?" And that brought the money, just as one gcod turn deserves another. Her wit was so sccc ssfnl that she tried again next «&k. “I want money, my dear, to buy a new dress." “Well, you can't have it; yon called roe a bear last night." said her husband. "Oh, we’.i. dear, year know that was only because you are fond of hugging. ’ It hit him just right again, and she got the money and some thing extra, as he left the pretty wife and hurried off to business, saying, “It takes a for tune to keep such a w ife as you are— but it's irorth U." — Feet — The French foot is meager, narrow and bony; the Spanish foot is small and ele gantly curved, thanks to its Moorish blood, corresponding with the Castilian pride, “high in the instep;" the Arab foot is proverbial for its high arch, “a stream can run under the hol low of his foot." is a description of its form ; the foot of the Scotch is large and thick; the foot of the Irish is flat and square; the English fool is short and fleshy ; the American foot is »pt to be disproportionately small. War Brewing in Europe. A most intelligent and capable Englishman, of the Libera! school, who has recently twice traversed Europe fr, m London to Stamboal. in a private letter to the editor of the Tnbuuo, thus epitom zes the situation : I have made a most attentive investigation of the state of public feeling in Turkey. Greece, Italy. France and Switzerland, and will give you a briet resume, on which you may depend: The l urks. Arabs, a: d all the Mohammedan trib«s, hate the Emf-eror of the French ; a-d no doubt serious war may be expected in Algeria and along the whole of Northern Africa The Greeks hate the Emperor of the Erencb; first, because he suppxtris the Poje. whom the Greeks th .k the neatest enemy of their religion ; second, because the Emperor has bullied them, and they have taken entirely to the Hrnish alliance. The Italians hate the Emperor of the French wiih such hatred as only Italians perhaps can fee! ; First, because, they say. he gave money to Italian soldiers to shoot Ganba di ; that brigands, dressed as soldiers, paid w ith French gold, did the act of assassination. [I am my self fully persuaded that they are right in that.] Second, because he keeps their Capital (Rome) away from them and has done all he could to keep up confusion and brigandage ; to disunite and enslave them, instead of uniting them and liberating them. Third, because, breaking his solemn promise, he betrayed them alter the victories of Montebello. Magenta and Seller ino. Fourth, because the Italians are republicans, and the Emperor is the perjured destroyer ot European republicanism. [The man is doing bis best to be now the destroyer also of Ameiican republicanism ] The s*iss hate Napoleon, because they are republicans, and good ones, and know him to be the treacherous enemy of liberty. But what is more important than all the rest, and it is, by the blessing of the Great Being, perfectly true, the French people and the French army are heartily sick of Napoleon. From long practice, I speak French nearly the same as English, and had excellent opportunities for acquiring information, both going through France, returning, and again on my late vi.-it. 1 am astounded at ihe slate of thing' ; I never could have believtd it. On my saying a word about the Emperor and Mexico, peasants, farmers, bourgeois, privaie soldiers and officers go off into torrents of invective against the Emperor, such as I could hardly Lave imagined and that in the presence of an Englishman. Such days as those of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette may not be so distant as people suppose. The French are a fierce, fiery and haughtv race, and I can only look on the Emperor as sitting on the peak of a volcano in imminent danger of eruption : You will naturally waul to know what the French themselves pul forward as their priuci pal grievances : 1. For each of the three last years, the con scriptiuu bus been 100 000 a year, the previous maximum having been only 40,000. 2. One hundred thousand having been sent to Mexico (and the French hate sea voyages), of which only 55,000. at an st, remain alive. 3. That the regiments sent to Mexico were selected as being the most Republican, Ihe most legitimist, or the most Orleanist, and the Bnnaparlist regiments kept at home. 4 That Republican. Legitimist and Orleanist officers were unfairly exchanged into the doomed regiments. 5. That the luxury, vice and extragance of the Conrt are beyond measure, and the finances of the country are seriously suffering therefrom. 6. That the tnrbuler.t pol cy of the Emperor is resusci ating the Holy Alliance, viz: Prussia, Austria and Russia, against France. [There is no doubt this is quite true.] The French don’t like to be brought, without cause, into a war with three nations at a time, and they think— -1 believe with justice—if with three, then w ith four —fearful odds ! Also Italy ; that makes five. Then the wlnde Mohammedan population of Africa, with Turkey, six—a very poor look out. A Legend of Jndea—The Temple. The following is a translation from Lamar tine’s “Voyage in the East:” The site occupied by the Temple of Solomon was formerly a cultivated field, possessed in common by two brothers. One of them was married and had several children, the other was unmarried ; they lived together, however, cultivating, in the greatest harmony possible, the property they had inherited Irom their father. The harvest season had arrived; the two brothers bound up their sheaves, made two equal stacks of them, and left them on Ihe field. During the night, the one who was un married was -truck with an excellent thought; “My brother.” said he to himself, “has a wife and child to support; it is not just that my share should be as large as his.” Upon this he arose, and took from his slack several sheaves, which he added to those of his broth cr; and this he did with as much secresy as if he bad been committing an evil action, in or der that his brotherly action might not be re fused. On the same night the other brother awoke, and said to his wife: 4 My brother lives alone without a companion: be has rot one to assist him in bis lab its, nor to reward him for bis toils; while God has bestowed on me a wife and children; it is not right that we sbon'd take from onr field a? ranch as be, since we have already m ire than he—domestic hap piness If you consent, we shall, by adding secretly a certain number of our sheaves to bis stack, by way of compensation, and, without his knowledge, see his portion of the harvest increasing.” Ihe project was approved and immediately put into execution. In the morn mg each of the brothers went to the field, and was much surpti.-ed at seeing the stacks equal. During several successive nights the same contrivance was repealed on each side ; for. os each kept adding to his brolhet’s store, Ihe slacks always remained ihe same. Bat one night, both having stood sentinel, to dive into the cause of this miracle, they met. earh bear ing the sheaves mutually destined for the other; it was thus all elucidated, and they rushed into each other's arras, each grateful to Heaven for having so good a brother. Now says the le gend, the place w here so good an idea had simultaneously occurred to the two brothers, and with such pertinacity, must have been acceptable to God; men blessed it, and Isreal chose there to erect the house of the Lord! Suekp a Necessity on a Farm —The Mark Lane Express says : “The experience of the most advanced agricultural nations, like England. Germany and France, goes to show that sheep are a necessity of a good general svs 4 em of husbandry, on even the highest priced lands and amidst the densest population. They afford as much food to man. in proportion to their own consumption of food, as any other domestic animal.” A girl in Cairo, Illinois, healthy and intel ligent, has an irresis'.able propensity to eat flies. She will steal off info a room by herself, and, showing great dexterity in catching her game, feed on flies.

Disparity of Ages in Marriage. The muring? of s young lady wi'h a g\.u tkman Mae twenty years her senior is a very frequent occurrence; yet. whenever such a marriage does take place, there are always fifty people ready to talk about the sacrifice, and to aver that it is impossible she can love him—that she has or-iy married for wealth and position—and, in fact, that it is altogether ■booking. Some Mum her. some pity her, some call her poor, d ar thing, acd some de signate her as "a shameless creature;" bat none ever give her credit for love, affection or res pect toward the person on whom she has be stowed Leohand. Tl is s’ercotyixei idea, that people must be b rn in the same year to love each other properly, is ail nonsense It is on a par with the cruel lather and designing mo ther hallucination —very weil upon the stage, but not applicable to real life. For our part we think it is just as possible for a girl tn fall in love* with a middle aged man as with a voung one. In fact, we think that they are generally twenty times more agreeable, and often considerably handsomer. A boy is only a gitl in coat and cravat. He thinks Just as she does, has the same interest in nothing, "J just as delicate and pretty, and about as relia ble A man is something greater. 11 she bos anv sense, she involuntarily feels it and ad mires him As the best things improve as they grow older, a truly admirable man musl become more so us he crows older; and tl somte women discover this, it is ridicu! ;s to over whelm them w ith the same sweeping censure. Of course, some women do marry for money ; but there are rich young men as well as rich old men. and the mere fact of a difference is years does not prove the assertion. Years alone do not make the disparity between them; it is the bean, the brain, the soul, which shol'd be alike in marriage. Where these are match ed one with the other, a wedded pair happy otherwise they arc miserable. In the beauti fu! passage in ‘ David Coppetfie'd,” where after long and quiet suffering, Annie at last opens her heart to her kind old husband, and unveils her own truth with Jack Maldon'i teachings, she utters these words : "there cat be no disparity in marriage like unsuitability of mind and purpose; " and these words embo dy our meaning better than all that we eat say. It is better, certainly, for young peoplt to marry. It generally is the case; it is wel and natural. Yet love may be just as strong with years of difference between the parties aud the outer world has nothing to do with it We know as much of each other's lives am purposes as we do of the man in the moon and why we should forever take upon otirselva the right of ascribing a motive, which suit! with our own ideas, to ail our fellow- creatures actions, is to us a mystery. We are willing for our part, to permit even a young beauty It unite herself to u middle aged millionaire.with out elating for a positive fact that she cannot love him. Love's arrows are aimed at randun —and i! at limes he pierces an old and a young heart at the same time, there is little ciuse foi wonder, and surmises and insinuations an neither necessary nor delicate. Victor Hluo's Gift to tub Commission.—The follow ing note was sent n the managers of the New York Sanitary Fair through Mr, Bigelow, cur Consul at Paris ; "In 1363, 1 happened to be one day a Fassy, at M.

Ohio i but a type of the western States, and Irdian and Illinois, when the record is completed, wt show an equally proud exhibition ol tbei patriotism ond strength. "When we speak of morality at this day, w must certainly leave America out of th question, Tis true, 'lis pity—and pity tis 'ti true. Politically, a more corrupt and mor unscrupulous set of men the sun never shon on ; and morally, it is but necessary to invok the aid of a suns tuloUe lor the last chapter u Isaiah to give the world a faint idea of th social condition of the people of this hem sphere.
