The prophecy respecting the Servant which was fulfi'led in Jeus as the Messiah was that his viaatre was so marred more than any man, and he hathfno form nor comeliness; but when Jesus sto"d upon me Mount Trans figuration and His glor ified beauty for a moment broke through the earthly form, "U1S FACE DID SHIN K AS THE SI N, and his raiment was white as the light'1. j.nat, was me suggestion or what our glorified body shall be.

See it in the flower that peeps out of the crannied wall : see it in the star that twinkies and blinks at you from out the depths above; see it in the landscape unrolling as a picture down the valley and marred only by the unshapely erections of man.

God is the Standard of beauty, aDd what will be the body be that He will make to dwell forever with Him ! The body which pleases God must bc a glorious body. - 'It is sown in dis honor; it is raised in glory." Paul cans this earthly body a vile body, and looked at from one point of view, that statement is true. This body is ever snowing the effects of sin and suffering. A course of sin, a single sinful act, leaves its trace upon the body as surely as the flame sweeping over the field leaver a swath of black. Old age comes on and the body is bent with infirmity, there is nothing glorious about that; sickness leaves the cheeks hollow and pinched, there is nothing glorious about that: and if the body bus any glorv here, it is like that of the ilower which springs up in the morning and at even ing is cut down and withers away; and if the bodv has anv glorv here, how is that glory gone when the poor death striken body is laid away in the dust of the earth !

WOODBURY- AMONG THE HOUSEMEN. Woodbury Inu long been noted for its tine horses, and for a small place prob ably contains as many horse enthusiasts as any town in Connecticut. Among the many tine steppers iu Woodbury, one al ways takes satisfaction in visiting the -tablef of J. K Capewell & Co , at West .Side. Mr Capew el I is an expert at break -ir g horses, and horses are brought here to him for this treatment from all direc tions. Just now he has hordes in his stables belonging to W. II. Janvier of Xew York, r f Pears' soap fame, G. W. yndrews of .Naugatuek, G. X. Brewster and C. B. Gold, John Calhoun and linger Ives of West. Cornwall and many others. Mi'-srs Capewell & Co. are ju- t. enlarging :hoir quarters. Contriictor Wallace Ward is putting up a barn -48x2(1, to give him more stable room.

He is a very stylish iior-e, of gteat substance and symmetry ; ha strong back and loins, good barrel, powerfully mu-cled quarters and fore arms, with good legs and feet. He has a very litie cut head and neck, and a more intelligent or pleasanter disposition no one ever saw. He possesses great speed iinl will be giveu a race record this com ing season.

Town 1'aik i- a da:k bay, standing IU hands two inches high, and weighs J 1C0 pounds, itegistertd number 11585, Vol. VI, Amer ican Trotting Kegir-ter, ('tandard under rule ti). He was bred by Hon Epzur Smith, Highiawn Farm, Lee, Mass., and was foaled in He has never been trained for speed, for his owners wanted bis services more in the stud and wished ,o Keep him sound, and let his produce -how for him; his gait is free and open, ..'id there is every reason to believe ashe should be, from his superior breeding, a hor-e that would make a mark better than .'10 if he had an opportunity. His colts are of good form and disposition, all show fine trotting action and some as three-year olds show better than three minutes without much training. He took first premiums in his class at Danbury fair in lst8 and 181)0. Alcantara, the sire of Town Talk, has during the season of 181J0 been brought oromineuriy oeiore tne punnc through tne great number or ' is get that have en ten a tne z .so nt, tne number of new comers was 21. being a greater number than any sire has had to enter in one season, and his total cumber of 33 in the nt is larger man any norse or his age (.1 4 years; uas ever nad to his credit. As a four-year old he trotted eight races mostly against aged horses winning six or the number and gaming a record of 2 23. He is a born trotter possessed of a rugged constitution, great resolution and indomitable courage and a game and re liable race horse, as the summary of his races will testify. He showed halves in his work in 1.00 aud had his development oeen concmueu would doubtless greativ reduce his record. George Wilkes sire of Alcantara, stands ahead of any stallion that ever lived as a sire of speed, he is credited with 70 in the 2 30 list, 14 of which number have records of 2.20 or betier. Alma Mater, the dam of Alcan tara, is one of the greatest brood mares that ever lived, her first six foals have either public records or well authenticat ed trials better than 2 30 which has never been equalled by any other mare of her age. ilut Alcantara does not have to re ly upon his ancestors for his nonularitv. great as they are, for he has already de monstrated rnat ne is a trotter himself. and that he has also the power to trans mit the trair, to his progeny. v loiet, the dam of "Town Talk," is by Administrator, Bon of Kysdyk's Hambletonian and out oflDollv Halstead. by Mambrino Chief, thus combining that potent cross which has produced such results as Director, 2 17: Piedmont. 2 17 1-4; Mambrino, 2 21 14.
