It has been my lot to witness the
agonies of many a bed of death ; but
l have never witnessed one, where re

hour, upon which the faintest ray of
hope has beamed. There has been
confidence—there has been self-right

I there has been an apparent trust in
, Christ, and sometimes even a desire
I to partake of his Sacrament—but not

perience that I speak—believe ine,
that a repentance begun in the hour of The
death, is of all human calculations he

A THOUGHT.
There is a mysterious feeling that
cloud ov
like
frequently pusst
the spirits. It comes upon the soul
in the busy bustle of life, in the social
circle, and in the calm and silent re
treats of solitude. Its powers are
alike supreme over the weak and
hearted. At one time it is caused
byjthe flitting of n single thought
across the mind ; again the sound will
coine booming across the occean of
memory gloomy and solemn ns a
death knell, overshadowing all the
bright hopes and sunny feeling» of
ihe heart. Who can describe it, and
yet who has not felt its bewildering
influence? Still it is a delicious sort
of sorrow ; and like « cloud dimming
the sunshine of a river, although cau
sing a momentary shade of gloom, it
enhances the beauty of returning
brightness. Jt is in moments like
these that the pious mind rises from
the sordid interests of this sublunary
world and ascends to full communion
with its maker. The past will flit
across the memory, mournful and
sweet, like the low ujid lingering
tones of distant music ; the present,
like the rush of the mighty winds
yet noiseless as the slumber of an un
awakened echo; and the future spreads
the soft and downy pillow of' the toinb,
when the spirit is to leave its tene
ment of clay and ènter the. portals that
open to the felicity of an eternal im
mortality.
