The Trincess Gurith. f i s sh. was called, was not an idolater. ye( ir near! v a year alter her marriage s ins liut her husband knew fjw pe. so the name ;t her I'otiLjion. 1 hev Sjoti l'i:ii'.'d, however, tint in ior it was pure and peaceable, gentle and. easy to be entreated, tail ot mercy and good fruits, without par- ; tiali'y and without hypocrisy: and' so she was loved by all and might have been happy, hud not Queen Temora, the widow of the king's eldest son, visited the court of Nor way. Now this Temora was very beautiful, proud and revengeful, and so skilled in magic that by many she was named the " Sorcer ess." Temora was queen in her own right, cf the far Orkney isle -; and notwithstanding her husband's suiden death she had cherished the hope to reign in Norway also ; for Regnar, then the younger brother, though noT the heir, had wooed her when, frcm ambition, she preferred the elder prince. When Temora came to court, hiding her fiery passions with a smiling face, and saw the beauty of the innocent Gurith, and the influ ence she had won in the hearts of those around her, she devoted her to ruin. It is said that she went at midnight, far up among the hills, into the depths of a black pine for est, where stood a rude but famous temple of the idol Woden (the ruins are now scattered about the place,) and there sprinkling her own blood upon the altar, vowed to accomplish a deep and horrible revenge. From that hour she left no way untried to reach the ends. At first she sought, under the mask of friendship, to introduce into the heart of Gurith some dark suspicion of her hus band's faith and so at length to break that gentle heart ; but the young princess was above suspicion, love and her perfect confidence in him she loved were as a"breast plate of adamant to her, from which every weapon that was aimed against it fell oft", not only blunted, but leaving no trace to show where it had struck. Thus, Temora was confounded and perplexed, for she had judged the princess by her own principles and teeungs. bull notwithstanding all these deep devices, the guiltless Lady Gurith grew in favor and tender love with all who knew her, and the sorceress inwardly cursed her-. self when she beheld the efFect of Gurith's presence upon the barbae rous Norwegians ; an effect far more grateful to a woman's heart than the most awful influence of her own magic spells. When Gurith came forth into the bahquet hall they met her with a reverence only next to adoration. Their brutal manner caught for the time some what of her gentleness ; their fierce disputing stopped; their coarse jests and roars of laughter sounded more taintly ; the very minstrels touched their harps more lightly and turned their war songs to a more plaintive lay, such as a gentle woman loves to hear. Rut the se- cret cf the influence was a mystery to the consummate artfulness of Queen Temora ; she could not com prehend that simple humility and unaffected kindness that can win their way to the most savage bosom. For instance, after a battle, when the wounded were brought home, a band of warriors came forward to the terrace on which Gurith and Queen Temora sat surrounded by their ladies. They had brought the richest spoil and laid it at the feet of the two princesses. Temora snatched at once a coronet of gems, and with a haughty smile placed it upon her head. Tfiey who stood bj shuddered as they , saw. ucr bright eyes flashing and the rich blush of pleasure on her cheek ; for a few dark drops clung to the threads of yellow hair upon her brow, and trickled down her face. There was human blood upon that coronet. Gurith had scarcely looked upon the glittering baubles set before her ; she had seen a wounded sol dier fail exhausted at the gate, and sQeTlewt nils iu,u- l hey who stood bjmifed with !endr and ad I UilllU" ovf, as thev bcneld lier i t i t i hands an.l ganneatsi stained with blood, for she had torn her long white veil to staunch the' blood, (dressing the wounds of the dying man with her own soft hands, arid then as other wounded soldiers w?r 'brought from. the field, : i wn her rank ni-l.tin ie had for feblfciKV) of her sex, t" alinn!.-t their rr Ct'S ilS Gurith lief, these was It was ia such instito that the character of discovered ; was it i strange thut she seemed almost nenig oi a inguer oraer to tue tin- ; tauircl s v iges ?

There was n in.'iv t.-.vi that ! e aujner m i smtii ! joine you ie p.?!.ee to which the ii cess retired, not only a pr, stated pemds --very d:iy, hut often, a other titli'S. There, she would sometimes remain shut up fir hour.-, aud no one dared to break upon h. r privacy, even her 'husband humored her wishes, and Lai never since his marriage, visited that chamber. If sometimes she visited it mournful, dispirited and with downcast looks, she never failed to come forth from j her retirement with a T new spirit. calm and smiling;, and all the fair beauty of her face restored. This, then, was the chamber where those spells were woven which had baffled the skill of the sorceress. Not long after the queen had made the discovery of the chamber, the aged king, her father-in-law, while visiting the Princess Gurith, was struck with blindness. Temora began to rejoice, fcr an opporcunity well suited to her own dark purpos es had it last occurred. There was a solemn festival held in honor of the goddess Freya. In the midst of the rejoicing, the sorc eress (her hair streaming upon her shoulders, and rich robes all rent) rushed into the hall. With frantic cries she bade the feasting cease, i and, siezing from an aged scald the j harp that he was sriking, she tore j away the strings, and then, in sul- len silence, she sat down before the J idol's image. Again she rose, and j with a dagger's point, scratched a j few rough characters upon the altar, j Thefcpriests had gathered around her, and when they saw those let- . ters they also shrieked aloud with horror ; they fell before the idol and bowed their faces to the ground, howling and heaping dust upon their heads. Upon this, with a fix ed and dreamy stare, Temora arose and beating upon a sort of shapeless drum, commenced a low and mel ancholy chant. She told them that the had cause to mourn, that nation heavy calamities had fallen upon them, that the gods had sent a curse among them. A monster had been cast up by the treacherous waves, and none had known their danger. Their king, their prince, nay, she hereself, had been deceived; for that fearful monster had come among them in a human form, even as a beautiful maiden. They had cherished ner, and now tne juuge- .... ment had fallen upon them; it had begun with the king-he was struck: with blindness where woulu it tail next? with prophetic glance she could forsee. Rut here the drum dropped from her hands-; at once her frantic violence was stiUed; she sank upon the ground and her long hair fell like a veil over her stern features she had said enough. As she began, a smothered sound ot smothered sour cursim: rose on all sides; now the whirlwind of furious passion burst forth and knew no bounds. The i tumult spread far and wide among the people. Led by the w.-ird priests, they rushed to the palace, and demanded that their king fhould come forth to them. Now, the poor old king, being in his do tage and almost governed by the priests, had been persuaded to answer just as they suggested. Led by the sorceress he came forth sightless and trembling, and his few faltering words confirmed all that the artful Temora had declared. , All this time Prince Reguar had been absent. He came in from hunting just when Temora had brought his father forth. Horrors- truck, he soon perceived the pur pose of the fiendlike woman; but in vain he sought to quell the furious tumult, his father was totally under the priests, and when a cry was raised, demanding as their victim, the young and innocent Gurith, the kings assent was given. As lor the princess, she was not to be found. Two persons, however, w..o at once had guessed the place of her retreat, met at the door of her mysterious chamber. For once that doer waa scarcely closed. It . opened at the gentle touch of Reg. nar, but thero was something ar rested hi:u. " btop, stop, he whispered, holding the door firmly with one hand while he thruat forth t'ne other to prevent Temora from advancing., ' Stop but a little time. Let us not disturb her yet." Temorii obeyed. Curiosity for awhile mastered her vengeance. She wished to har distinctly the w-Milrt which were pronounced in that c'lmuhei; but what were tbe words that fell upon her ear ? The low, sweet voice of Gurith breath ing tortu prayers to t'ie God she l'l . - worsnipea ; pleidmg tor her worst enemy; praying that He whose favor is life, would give a new spirit and swee t peace of mind, and everv Die isin-r to her sister Temora ! Th voku of Gurith ceased, and Recuar j entered softly Temora had sunk upon the step where she had stood; she did not enter, though at last that chamber stood open before her; but with still greater astonishment than that with which she had lis- teued, she gazed upon its inmate, She was kneeling with both I ids to her face. The tars that trickled tii t ough her fingers too well betray ed the anguish that had stopped her voice in prayer. And this, then, wa the secret of the myster ious ch imber. Gurith has trusted to no spe'i! but that of innocence; her streugth had been in the con fession uf utter weakness to Him with whom she held her high and spiritual communion to him whose strength is made perfect in the weakness of his children. To Him who hath borne our griefs and carried our sorrows, whose gracious invitation is to the weary and the heavy laden, (die had gone in every time of trial, and from the foot of his cross, where, she ever laid the burdens of her griefs, she had brought forth into the world that sweet and holy cheerfulness which ; passed the understanding of the wretched Temora. Struck to the heart, tho soceress slunk silently away. Some feelings of remorse had seized upon her, and now she would have gladly stopped the tumult. Alas ! she had no power to calm the storm which she had raised. The frantic multitude had burst the palace gates. Regnar was overnoword. and fb.v I dragging their mek and innocent victim to the altar of the horrid idol, when sudden!', and it seemed miraculously, a higher power inter posed and stopped their blind furry, The aged monarch fell dead in the arms of his attendants the excite ment of the la3t few hours had proved too much for hia feeble frame. Instantly, and almost at a venture, a single voice cried out, "Long live King Regnar j" There was a breathless pause and then the cry was echoed by the shouts of all the people. Gurith, the christian Gurith, was saved. Discovery at Herculaneum. i An interesting discovery of a life I sized famale bust in pore silver has j lately been made at Herculaneum. ! The work, according to an account given in the Patrie, is in a state of excellent preservation, and is the ony specimen of its kind which has I been found daring the C0Qrse of the j excavationg. At first the material i was thought to be only bronze, the action of the sulphur having some what altered the appearance of the surface, and the sulphate of silver which has formed upon the metal vieldinrr a black color like that found in the commonest sort of ma t The bust was removed to j the museum wnen one of the keep . c 8trucij wjth the unusual tone of i f. urnn,p. onranprl nwv a nart of the surface, and at once came upon the silver beneath. A discussion " w r j i has arisen whether the worfe was originally cast or chiseled, but there seems now little doubt that the ffirmur TivnotrtAsis ia onrrect. The j hea(l j3 that of a oung and beauti- ; fll1 woman. but a9 vet the features ' have not been identified with that - - t - of any other extant head. Early Influences There can be no greater blessing than to be born in the light and air of a cheerful, loving home. It ! not only insures a happv childhood if there be health and a good con stitution but it almost makes sure a virtuous and happy manhood, and a fresh heart in old age. We think it every parent's duty to try to make their childhood full of love and of childhood's proper joyous ness, and we never see children destitute of them through poverty, faulty tempers, or wrong notions of their parents without a heartache. Not that the appliances which wealth can buy are necessary to the free and happy unfolding of childhood in body, mind or heart quite otherwise, wod be thanked : but children must least have love inside the house, and fresh air and j good play, and some companionship outside otherwise young life runs the greatest danger in the world of withering or growing stunted or sour or wrong, or least prematurely old and turned inward on itself. Mr Spurgeon on Smoking. " Last Sunday evening, at the Metropolitan Tabernacle," Bays the London Telegraph of September 24th. " the deservedly popular, un questionably benevolent, and emi nently shrewd Mr. Spurgeon was preaching a sermon i the sinful ness of little sins a somwhat fa vorite topic among non-conformist clergymen, and on which, under the title of The Little Foxes, some curious lay senn-iis have been written by Mrs. Harriet Beecher Stowe. The gist of Mr. Spurgeon's discourse was that habitual indul gence in little sins leads to the com mission of great ones a position enforced by one of the most famous English divines in the illustration of the 'boy who plays with the devil's rattles.' At the close of his useful sermon the minister intro duced an American clergyman who, he eaid, was anxious to address a few words to the congregation. This reverend gentlemen improved the opportunity by inveighing fiercely against the sin of. smoking tobacco, especially in the form of cig ars and told his hearers how he had straggled and fought this pernicious habit, and how at las', by the bless ing and with the assistance of Prov idence, he had conquered his ad dictedness to the weed. Then up rose Mr. Spurgeon, and with quiet numor, remarked that he would not allow the congregation to separate without tellino- them that he did not consider smoking to be a sin, and that, by the grace of God, he hoped to enjoy a good cigar before going to bed that night. Hyper crism should discern no irreverence in the conclusion of these remarks. We should be thankful for all things; and in observing that he hoped to enjoy a cigar through the divine grace he was but echoing the nat ural piety of Charles Lamb who asked why we should not say grace before going out for a walk in the fields as before and after meat." A Touching Story. A drunkard who had run through his property returned one night to his unfurnished home. He entered his empty hall. Anguish was knawing at his heart Btrings, and language was inadequate to express his anguish as he entered his wife's apartment, and there beheld the victims of his appetite, his loving wife and darling child. Morose and sullen, he seated himself with out a word ; he could not look up then. The mother said to her little one at her side : " Come, my dear, it is time to go to bed." And that little baby, as she was wont, knelt by her mother's lap and gazing wistfully into the face of her suffering parent, like a piece of chisled statuary, slowly repeating her nightly oristn. When she had finished, the child but four years of age, said to her mother : " Dear mother, may I not offer mi np one more prayer : " Yes, yes, my sweet pet pray. And she lifted up her tiny hands and prayed : " Oh God, spare, oh, spare my dear papa." That prayer was lifted with elec tric rapidity to the throne of God. It was heard on high ; it was heard on earth. The responsive "Amen" busst from the fathers lips, and his heart of stone became a heart of flesh. Wife and child were clasped to his bosom, and in penitence he said ; " My child you have saved your father from a drunkard s grave Engaged Young Ladies. So nice is it not, to be engaged ? Every morning her young man calls upon her on his way to his ofiice, kisses her, and presents her with a fresh rose, so emblematic of herself ; and every evening he calls again, kisses her, and bestows upon a new novel and a dainty boquet. He takes tea with her folks, and ad mires the way in which she presides over the table and whispers to her softly how delightful it will be when she pours out the tea and butters the toast for him alone ! Then those heavenly evenings in the par- lcr, with the gas dimly burning, the old folks asleep, that horrid brother in the theatre or the club, the teasing sister studying her les sons in her bedroom they two alone in their happiness ; was ever such bliss expected when she used to talk to her schoolmates about her fnture. A Curious Custom. In Rrittany there is said to pre vail a curious matrimonial custom. On certain fete days the young la dies appear in red petticoats, with white or yellow borders around tbem. The number denotes the portion the father is willing to give his daughter. Each white band, representing silver, betokens one hundred francs of rent ; and each yellow band denotes cold, and stands for a thousand francs a year, Thus, a young farmer who sees a face that pleases him, has only to glance at the trimmings of the pet ticoats to learn in, an ingtant what amount accompanies the wearer, Give Yvr Chili a F:i-jr A" child ' .mm1 iii'j- . i i i b- COnirS tb-u -r it w.'iti n it. v-p;pfr. because h !, , ,,t ,,.., ;,,, things wioeii ;-r.- ftioiii,.!. -md he will progn-n . v-u'ding-v.

How many thought'es oung men have spent their earnings in a tavern or grog-shop who ought to have been reading f Llow many parents who have no; spent twenty dollars for books for their families, would have given thousands to reclaim a son or daughter who had ignorantly, thoughtlessly, fallen into tempta tion. Don t Tell all You Know. It is a bad plan to place unreserv ed confidence iu man or woman. Never tell anyone all about your self let there be a little mystery and reserve: your friends will like you all the better for it. A book that you "know by heart" must inevitably be cast aside for a fresh volume; so will you he served if you allow yourself to be thoroughly read. Rut be prepared, in any emergency, to look your own life and acts squarely in the face without even flinching, or mark yourself a coward, it is not necessary to publish to the world all that is strictly per sonal, unless ridicule and frittering of power are desired; but if gossip makes itself busy with your name, do not be aggrieved if a grain of truth is spread over a dozen lies. Pass them by in silence, and do not even then torget your habitual reverence. Justice will be done you in time, never fear, and the less you clamor for it the better. Don't talk too much. An Inquisitor Punished. It is of the elder Dumas that the follow ing story is told : A stranger hav ing hpnrd with surprise $ Dumaa was a quadroon, called upon him to verify the fact. 'I am told, began the visitor. ' that you are a quadroon, Monsieur Dumas V Yes,' answered Dumas. ' And your father.' Was a mulatto, the distinguish- ed Gen. Dumas of the army of Italy -and a mulatto, roared the author in tones that left no doubt of the quality of his lungs. 4 And his mother, continued the intruder interrogatively. Was a negro,' shouted Dumas, rising to his feet. 4 And who, may I ask, was her mother?' continued the enterpris ing indefatigable bore. An ape, sir, an ape !' thundered the indignant author. ' My family began exactly where your's ends. Waiter, show that monkey the door. How to Talk. If you have the ability to amuse, talk often in corns pany, and in a way which shows that you understand what is said around you. T3ut do not talk long. In that case you are apt to tire your hearers. There are many persons, who though they have nothing to taldof, never know when to leave off talking. There are some who labor under so great and insatiable a desire for talking, that they will even interrupt others when about to speak. We should in society never tald of our own or other's domestic affairs. Yours are of no interest to them, and theirs should not be to you. Besides, the subject is of so delicate a nature, that with the best intentions it is a chanee if we do not make some mortifying mistake, or wound the feelings of some of the company. Sunshini: and Sleep. Sleep ess persons should court the sun. The very worst soporific is lauda num, and the very best sunshine. Therefore, it is very plain that poor sleepers should pass as many hours as possible in the sunshine and as few as possible in the shade. Many women are martyrs, and yet they do not know it. They shut the sun shine out of their houses and hearts, they wear veil3, they carry parasols, they do all possible to keep off the most potent influence which is in tended to give them strength and beauty and cheerfulness. Is it not time to change all this, and so get color and roses in our pale cheeks. strength in our weak backs, and courage in our timid souls ? The women of America are pale and delicate, but with the aid of sun light they may be blooming and strong, Dr. Darley.
