TREASURES IN HEAVEN.
But lay up for yourselves treasures in Heaven, where neither inoth nor rust (loth corrupt, and where tilled os do not break through nor steal.— Matt. 6:19. 'Tis oft of a beautiful city I hear. Whose walls are untouched with the blemish of time; Eternity’s river flows crystal and clear. And God is the light of the beautiful clime. They tell me the pavements are gleaming with gold; The walls are of jasper, and gateways of pearl; That over its beauty no shadows are rolled. No darkening tempests their banners unfurl. When night’s starry silence is reigning supreme. And daylight has faded away in the west. Alone in the solitude quiet I dream Of Heaven, the home of earth’s brightest and best. Sometimes in my wandering fancy it seems, I can almost hear the invisible choir Its music send down on the moon's silver beams, And waken a song In my faltering lyre. The years roll along in their hurrying flight. And leave with me naught of the treasures of earth: My days will be spent as a watch in the night! For short is the time unto Death from one’s birth. Then up in that beautiful city above May I some new treasure be storing away. Whose beauty shall kindle my heart in love For God, the Great Light of Eternity’s Day. What matter the rubies and jewels of earth. Or pearls of the Orient pillowed in gold? For slight is their value and little their worth. Compared with the treasures that heaven doth hold. No rust can corrupt, and no thief steal away, The treasure I have in the city of Love; No darkness can shadow the glory of day. That shines in that beautiful city above. —George Edrcard Day. A LITTLE LEGAL ADVICE. Prosecutor Winfield, of Hudson coun ty, has written a book pertaining to Grand Juries, their duties, &c. From it we learn that persons expecting to have a case come before the Grand Jury may challenge a Grand Juror the same as a Petit Juror; that the Prose cutor has the right to be in the Grand Jury room to examine witness and make suggestions of law, but not while the Grand Jurors are discussing and deciding the question of finding a bill. The following are interesting points of law as laid down by Mr. Winfield: You have a right to kill a man who is attempting to commit arson, bur glary in a dwelling house, murder, rape or robbery. A married man cannot be convicted of adultery unless the woman is mar ried also. A man has a right to burn down his own house or other building—or even if he only has possession under a con tract to purchase it. He is responsible for the damage done to other property, and not entitled to any benefit that would have resulted from an acci dental destruction of the building. A wife cannot be arrested for setting fire to her husband’s property. It is an assault and battery to strike a horse on which one is riding, or tc run against a wagon in which he is riding, or to incite another to do any thing of the kind. An indictment for bigamy can only be found in the county in which the second marriage was solemnized. In case of divorce, or absence from the State, or concealment in the State for seven years successively, the second marriage is not bigamous. It is as much of a crime to lift the latch of a door for the purpose of rob bery as it is to break the door open. If the thief enters an open door or window he cannot be indicted for “breaking.” A single unlawful (without license or on Sunday) sale of malt liquor consti tutes “a disorderly house,” but it ap pears that such is not the case if it is spirituous liquor. A mere lie is not a false pretense. It must be that some one relied on the falsehood to his own pecuniary loss. It is “forgery” to alter the figures in a cash or other book account to conceal a fraud. A i___, i /. ,1 — • • - — w untoicu iui nicni ing her husband’s goods, nor can any other person who commits the theft with her knowledge. If a man accidentally, inadvertently or in self-defense kills another while in the act of committing a crime he is guilty of murder in the first degree. It is “perjury” to swear that you “believe ’ a fact to be so when you know it is not. Generally it requires two opposing witnesses to convict of perjury. A wife cannot be indicted for re ceiving and concealing goods stolen by her husband. If an officer attempts to arrest you illegally you have the right to resist him. You also have the right to resist arrest by any one not exhibiting his badge or insignia of office. If a single other person is “frigh tened” by the unlawful or violent con duct of two or more in the street it constitutes a riot.” Snatching anything from a person is not “highway robbery.” There must be either violence or threats. Other wise it is simply larceny from the per son, the same as if the loser were drunk or asleep. --—_ “Do you realize it, Angelica,” whis p&Md Clarence to his betrothed; ‘ ‘only two 'weeks more and we will be one; b- ; remember, darling, that I am to k: that one.” And then the angelic «; . atxsio silently stole to the piano er- touchingly warbled, “O, to be I .c l.—ngt" THE APPEARANCE AND DAILY LIFE OF THE POPE. One of our correspondents has had a conversation with the Rev. Phillip Barry, canon of the Cashel Cathedral. The canon spoke as follows: “Leo XIII, is now 74 years of age. He is tall, thin, and honv. His face is of an ivory tint, and his eyes and lips are very expres sive and smilling. He looks very firm. Simeoni says he resembles Voltnire, but Leo XIII.’s smile is totally differ ent to Voltaire’s smile. The Pope wears his age well and walks remarka bly straight. He has snow white hair and very finely marked eyebrows. His eyes are wonderfully intelligent-look ing, and his voice is extremely liarmo nious. He speaks several languages as well as any professor of languages. He never says a foolish thing nor does a foolish thing, like poor Pius, IX., whose policy was fatal to the Pope's temporal power. He rises very early, and spends the first hours of the day in prayer.and generally in his bedroom. At 6 o'clock he says mass. At 8 o'clock he breaks his fast with a cup of choco late, reading his correspondence all the time. At 0 o'clock he receives Jacobini and the chiefs of religious societies. At noon he receives those Roman patriarchs who have remained true to him and the Ambassadors. “At 1 o'clock he dines, his dinner rarely costing more than two francs, or half a dollar."’ "And he keeps so rnanv cooks."' said the corresnnndent “He is obliged to keep up appear ances." answered the canon. “Once upon a time Popes were great eaters and drinkers, and were given to every kind of extravagance; but Leo XIII, is nothing of all this. After dinner he takes a little walk in the Vatican grounds, or he visits the museums, galleries, &c. Sometimes he is carried in a chair quilted with white satin. He is very fond of the garden, and likes to play the gardener at times. He frequently receives visitors in the garden, and talks of flowers to them to avoid other subjects. The first and second times I saw him he was in the garden. When I went with the pil grims he was preceeded by three noble guards, and at his side was Monsignor Macchi, his secret chamberlain. He wore a wide-brimmed hat and a large red cloak. We were presented to him one by one. He looked at us and scrutinized us well. I saw he recog nized me, but he treated me like the others—as if he saw me also for the first time. ‘Are you Irish?’ he said ‘I am happy to receive the faithful ol that nation!’ He then looked again at us as if he would have read into oui souls. ‘Your Bishop,’ he continued ‘brought me offerings from a people pressed with poverty.’ Then, seeing me still on my knees, he offered me his hand to raise me. ‘I had thought,’ he continued, ‘that the offerings would have decreased; but it was not so. We live on charity’ (and here he smiled sadly), ‘for all we had has been taken ! from us. Oh! these persecutions!’he | cried with a loud voice. ‘They puri ! fy us, even when the leaven is pure j and immaculate.’ I seem to see him ! now,” said the canon. “His head : looked like a relief in a blue sky. The ; sun was setting, and he looked up to ; the sky, as if seeking an inspiration there. ‘I have heard,’ he then said, j ‘that, notwithstanding the general i state of anguish in Ireland, the church ! es are full of people. May the Lord I be praised and blessed, and may my ; prayers bring peace on the people! ; Lord, hear our prayers and judge us!” I “He then blessed us, and the audi I ence was finished. I- have never seen ! so much power united to so much sim ! plicity. At 4 o'clock the Pope resumes i his official audiences in the Vatican. 1 At v o clock only ne takes a little rest, I but at 8 o'clock he returns to work in J his private rooms, where he remains j until 10 oclock, when he retires for the i night, not always to sleep, though, for i it is during the night that he reads and writes for his own pleasure, his | favorite subject being the “Science of ! St. Thomas,’ and essaj’s on the works j of that saint, which he receives from ■ every part of the world, whenever and wherever published.”—11 Capitan Fra cassu. -♦ » A violent ring at the door and the doctor poked his head out of an upper window and demanded: “What's want ed?” “For pity’s sake make haste,” came the answer. “It’s a case of life and death. Fm Mr. Simpson, and you are wanted at the house immediately.” The doctor closed the window, and about fifteen minutes later sauntered leisurely out of the front door and said: “Ah, Simpson, your wife has another fainting spell, I suppose?” “No, no: worse than that; it’s her little dog, her pet poodle. He’s all rolled up with cramps.” “What!” shouted the now alarmed physician, “her pet poodle sick? This is indeed serious. If he should die your wife would not live a week.” Andthetwomendashedmadly up the street. -♦ -O- ♦-— Since Dr. Howard Crosby published his criticism on “The Nude in Art,” a great many New Yorkers have refused even to speak the naked truth.

Writ ing is not his strong point, neither is spelling, and lie called on Mrs. Jones, who was sewing in the room. “Maria,” he said, suspending his pen in the air and catching a globule of ink on his nose, “is there any h in sofa?” “Of course there is,” answered Mrs. Jones, taking from her mouth a but ton that she was going to sew on Wil lie's best jacket; “s-o-p-h a, sofa.” “Thanks! That’s the way 1 always spell it, come to think of it,” said Jones, airily. Then there was a silence. Sud denly he asked: “Are there two g's in sugar, Maria?” “Mercy, no!" said Mrs. Jones, sharp ly. “I should think you could spell a little word like that. Jeptha. S-h-u-g-a-r, sugar.” “That's so,” assented Jones, “but I forgot the h: thought the word didn't look right," and he scratched in the missing aspirate. Then he folded his letter and set about directing it. “How many n's in Cincinnati?” he asked, balancing a postage stamp on his tongue. “About a dozen!’ snapped Mrs. Jones, who has just discovered that both knees of Willie’s pants need re pairing. “S-i-n-c-i-n-u-a-t-i, Cincinnati. I’m not sure that the last letter is a v or i. You ought to keep a dictionary, Jeptha, and not depend on me for everything.” “I don't need one, when you're around, dear,’’ said Jones, with a sly wink at the ceiling. “T tn Iip !i nrottv cnollnr said Mrs. Jones complacently, “but I’m liable to make mistakes like other peo ple. Comes natural for some folks to spell, and I suppose I’m one of them,” and she proceeded to cut out two square ornaments for Willie's knees, while Jones went out and posted his letter. HOW HE GOT AROUND IT. I remember a daily paper started on this continent a few years ago to ad vocate temperance and other superla tive and offensively Christian virtues, which had many hard struggle in its audible endeavors to please God and mammon. Here racing is generally supposed to be inferior, as an act of devotion, to attending church equally of course the readers of even a temper ance sheet like to know the bare fact that a race meeting has taken place. This much the paper in question con ceded without striking a blow, but, alas, it was soon after discovered that the correct state of the pools was a matter of manifest importance to church members, who might otherwise beinduced by evil-minded and ungodly persons to back the wrong horse. What was to be done? It would never do to give the sanction of the paper to so deadly a sin as betting, and the re ligious editor scratched his head in sore perplexity for an hour or more over the difficult problem. The result of his cogitations 1 give from memory. The account of the meeting ran some what as follows: “The Summerside races took place yesterday, in spite of all that we have from time to time said against the pro priety of such exhibition. A large crowd was present, who appeared to hugely enjoy the disgraceful scenes, and we regret to say the weather was fine and the ground in excellent order. The abominable and reprehensible sin of betting prevailed to a large extent upon the result of the first race, for which Blue Jay was the favorite at 3 to 2.” Thus were the morals of the paper rinrl if orl nnrl tlin rlno r»r\no i-„ .1 on results.—Musical Observer.
