THE CHRISTIAN'S RACE.
He stool beside a dving bed; The lamp burnt pale and low, And dimly seen, an o!d grey head Was battling its last foe. It was a father that lay there That gazer was a son: I whispered, 'There is help in prayei lie said, "Cod's will be done!" He itoud amid a glittering crowd; Within the chancel wide, And gracefully the rin bestowed Upon a blooming bride. 'Rejoice, for luve is round thee fpread, And lile is in its prime7' His smile was solemn, as he said. "It is a holy time." He stood beside a healing spring, Whence drops of mercy fell; And lovely was the new born thing Rathed in that holy well: It wasfhis eldest born; I said, "Rejoice, ray friend, rejoice" "I do," he cried, with stooping head, And with a trembling voice. He stood beside an open grave The funeral rite was done, He had returned, to Him who gave, His loved, his only son! "Do not despair, my friend," I cried, AJillldlUUUU Wilt MttJ'llJj,, lie smi "He I Tabic showing the time and place oi noiuin tke Circuit Courts oi uus lllllUUUUU Wilt MttJ'liJj,, died upon me, and replied e isnt dead, tut sleeping !" I stood beside a dying bed 'Twas he himself lay there ; A smile of holy light o'ersprtad His countenance of prayer. He said, ,;In sorrow, faith was mine ; In joy, a holy fear ; . Now both are lost in hope divine Still, Savior, thou art near!" Such was his life! In joy and wo His heart was fixed above ; Faith was his only strength below, His only food was love. Teach me, O Lord, his life to live ; Teach me his death to die : May I to thee time's moment give Thou mc eternity. Di iliah Mnga z inc. THE FAMILY NEWSPAPER. THE LARGEST SUBSCRIPTION IN THE WORLD. Tlie Plii ladclphia The Courier is on as firm and independent a basis as any paper issued, at home or abroad, and its ample means will be always em ployed to make it equal, as a family newspaper, to any journal pub lished. It is a permanent establishment. The Courier is an independent paper, fearlessly pursuing a straight forward course, and supporting the bst interests of the public. This approved family paper is strictly neutral in politics and reliciov, and the uncompromising opponent of all quackery. It-naintains a high tone of morals, and not an article will appear in its pages, which should not find a place at every fireside. The unparallcd patronage, from every section of the country, is the best evidence of its approval. It has spoken and will continue io speak for itself. Its list embraces over 34,000 subscribers, extend ing from Ihe Lakes to the Ocean, and combining all interests and clas ses of the republic. Each number of the Courier contains as much matter as would fill a 12mo volume, the cost of which alone would be the price of the paper for a whole year. The general character of the Courier is well known. its columns" contain a great variety of Talcs, Narratives, Essays, Biographies, Together icilh articles on Science, Fine Arts, Mechanics, Agriculture, Manufactu res. Foreign News, New Publications Morality. Medicine, The Silk Culture, Temperance, Family Circle, Seir-EducatedMcn, List of Insolvent Ranks, Letters from Europe, The Classics, Health, Commerce, Literature, Domestic Intelligence. Education, Amusements, Facctia, Humorous Poetical Articles, The Drama, City Matters, Amusing Miscellany, The Markets, The Musical World, Correct Prices Current, Discount and Exchange, History, Philosophy, And all other matters discussed in a Universal Family Journal furnishing altogether as vast, and, we believe, as interesting a variety as can be found in any other Journal, embracing subjects for Farmers, Mechanics, Tradesmen, Artisans, , Merchants, Men of Leisure, Teachers, Students, - And every Class of our Country. The Courier may always be dejwnded upon, as nothing important is permitted to escape a notice in. its columns. It will always faith fully fulfil its agreements.

A scries of popular tales, of unequalled interest and value, will follow in constant succex sion. . popular fttusCc. In the Courier is inserted the music of the most popular Airs, Bal lads, and Songs, as soon as they are imported: so that country read ers may have the most popular music for tjie voice, the piano, the guitar or other rnstruments, as soon as published, which if paid for separately would cost more than the price of subscription.

PROSPECTUS OF THE FARMER AND MECHANIC: It is at the suerrestion of of many who take a deep interest in the welfare of our State, and who regard the interests of the public, and those of individuals as identified together, that we have thought the present a favorable juncture, for undertaking the publication of a sheet to be called the Farmer and Mechanic, which may become the organ of the great working and producing classes of our State ; and under their patronage the instrument of carrying out the salutary work of improvement, retrenchment ami reiorm. t or tne advance ment of these great aims, our paper will advocate the necessity of great industry and.economy among all classes, as the only honest re sources of wealth to any community, and the means of selling us free from that dependence, which in our present crippled condition we are obliged to put on others, and securing to ourMdves ia future the profits of our own labors. It will endeavor to stimulate enterprize, and promote improvement in agriculture, as our surest guarantee of fi.ture prosperity; and it will direct public attention to this quarter, as the only one from which help can come to restore the fallen foi tunes of our citizens, and renovate the injured morals of society. For the attainment of these great purposes, it will be necessary that every Farmer and Mechanic, whatever may be his circumstances, should, without solicitation, contribute his aid to so laudable an undertaking, identified, as it must be, with his best interests ; and this he should do, not only by paying up promptly the price of subscription in advance, but by lumihing for the columns of the paper, original communi cations on the various subjects with which he may be supposed to be familiar. Beyond these the subjects of Education and Morality will never be lost sight of; but while they will claim our constant consid eration, they will well deserve to find support from the pens of our Schollmasters,and Clergymen of every denomination. The impor tance of receiving aid from correspondents, will at once be obvious to all desirous of seeing our paper become popular and useful No impediment will be olfercd to the free discussion of any question of public utility, by those whose views are not biased by partizan pre judice ; but any attempt to involve under this clausetopics of a polit ical nature, will be strictly discountenanced. On the subject of Slavery we shall regard Abolition as a forbidden fruit, which some may recommend for its fair exterior, but 7hich we know is bitter ashes at its core : like the forbidden fruit of Para dise, it has already introduced iniquity and disunion among those who have plucked it, and would soon drive us into exile from our Eden-like land, were we to permit incendiaries, who have fallen un der this- temptation, to roll the apple of discord into our midst, where they dare not venture themselves to come. This then, we will "touch not, taste not, handle not," ourselves, nor will we countenance in any shape the discussion of it in others. The light of inquity on this subject, is lile carrying a totch-light twexamine a magazine of pow der. The interest of the slave-holder will be consulted, by devoting a portion of attention to the plans" far the clothing, feeding and man agement of the slave. A reform, too, in the present system of over seeing is loudly called for, aud until it shall have been thoroughly reorganized, the most useful class of our fellow-citizens will labor under difficulty and discouragement. ''THE FARMER AND MECHANIC" will open its columns to Advertisements of every description will not neglect the local in terests of the county where it is published, but will be adapted to, and intended for circulation through every part of our Stale. Com missions of such a nature as we have it in our power to execute for the Planter and mechanic, will bc.ohcerfully attended to.

The course of instruction will comprise a thorough and complete education not only aiming at tho culture, strengthening, and development of the intellectual powers, but-at the refinement of the taste and formation of the deportment for the most correct walks of society. But as literature and science do not, within them selves, contain principles for directing rectitude of pur poses, or to check the abused power of knowledge, it is of vital importance, that the youthful mind be stored with materials for the cultivation of right motives. And how shall this be done 1 By the inculcation of a high tone of Christian Ethics. In this Institute, therefore, Chris tian Morals shall be a prominent feature of instruction. If, by the middle of September next, public approba tion shall respond to this proposition, Mr. F. will pro cure from the North and elsevhcr6 an able faculty of leachers. tie will spare no pains in placing the Insti tute in a well organized and permanent condition : and for this purpose will endeavor to procure the aid of a married gentleman of unqucstion able piety, whose experience in teaching has been many years, and who will act as nn Associate Principal. "Mr. F. as Rector and Principal, will be conscien tiously scrupulous in supervising the discharge of the Teachers' duties, in order that justice may bo extcndeU every pupil. There shall be kept up in the School a strict and uncompromising discipline, without which, all efforts to teach must prove vain and useless. Mr. F. therefore, docs not wish to receive the charge of any young lady, whoso parents will not yield to this highly necessary regulation The location of the Institute is highly salubrious ns to climate, and remarkable for good society.- Terms for the Session of FiveMontiis.
