The thought of God s iYnwilling
lies or refusal to help those who do
not first try to help themselves, is a
fact which is based upon the free
and moral agency of man. Man, be
ing a free agent, he is endowed with
faculties of both moral and intellec
tual nature, and it is by the proper
exercise of these faculties t hat, he is
enabled to discover and utilize the
relations of cause ami effect or as
certain what is really embraced in a
given phenouonon. T.t is by the pro
per exercise; a lid development of
these faculties that, lie obtains the
ability to discover the ?'itfercuce be
tween right and wrong, and pursue
the oi'iC and eschew tileother. Nature
we must remember, does not give to
man these faculties in a fully develop- j
ed state, else there could be no
heathen, no error, and man would I
be perfect. But Micprocess of deve
lopment is b\ slow degrees, in lift
eiiccd nod controlled not entirely, but 1
largely by circumstances.

thattV.V! frtViHcr makes in securing

Life's liriKktCHt Hour.
Not longr/niee, I met a gentleman,
who is assessed tor one million. Sil
ver was in his hair, earn upon his
brow, and he slightly stooped beneath
his burden ot* wealth. We were speak
ing of the period of bis life he had
reached the most perfect enjoyment,
or rather, when he had found happi
ness to be nearest unalloyed.
'I'll tell you," saicl the million lire,
'when was the happiest hour of my
life. At the ago of one and twenty 1
had saved SfrSOO. I was earning $?OU
a year, and rny father did not take it
from me, only requiring that I should
pay my board. At the age of twenty
two 1 secured a pretty collage just

The Sabba'.h and the Sabbath night
we passed beneath my father's roof,

A few of tkc broad distinctions of j
physiognomy depend on th? forms of
the features, bill all its nicer shades
have far more to do with expressions;
and in this, indeed, the real char
acter is often seen where the confor
mation of the features seem locontra
dict it. There are Some general and
well-known rules for the determina
tion of physiognomical character, as
far s> it has to do with the shapes of
the features; the aquUiuc nose and
e\e, for instance, belong to the heroic
class, ti ick lips to tbe sensual, and
thin to the sellisii; yet these may all
be liable to many exceptions?the
first cert it tidy are; tor Nelson, Wolfe,
I'll feu lie, ami many other heroes had
nothing of the eagle physiognomy. It
is natural to associate beauty wi'.h
goodness and ugliness with wicked
ness; and children generally do this,
but an acquaintance with the world
soon shows us that bad and sellisii
hour's may be concealed under the
ha mistimes t fixtures, ami the highest
virtues under the homvliest; ami that
goodness may even consist with con
formations of lace actually ugiy. We
l hen begin to look for the character
in the expression rat her t hau in the
forms of the features, and to distin
guish assumed expressions from na
tural ones; and so we go on, and. as
we grow older, become better phy
siognomists, though we never arrive
at the certainty of judgment which
seems not to be intended we ever
The idea that obtains to loo great
an extent. North nnd South, that la
bor is disgraceful, is a n abominable
idea. The ditch digger deserves as
in lieh respect nst lie lawyer, and lie
ought to have it. When one comes
into the presence of a bard laborer,
be should lake oll' bis hat to-stich
hard laborer, feeling that he js in
I ho presence of one of his benefac
tors. God bliss the horny handed

falling into ruins!
The. lluti. Geo. J). Tillman, of
Edgi'lield, says Jhat cane from the
swamp is an excellent substitute for
corn, lie says that a large armful
cut green is equal to ten cars of corn,
ami t hat a horse or mule can do tour
II fths of the work it would do if fed
with corn. It is not to be dried or
stored, but always cut green and fed

We have to a great extent, the
power oi'prolougirig our lives. Liv
ing by rule, aud obeying nature's
simple laws, may seem very irksome
to people at first, but doing so soon
becomes a habit, and a blessed habit,
and one that tends to happiness, to
comfort and length of oayS.
A great deal might be said about
the benefits of regularity in our
modes and ways of living. Asa
'proof of the beneliciality of regular,
living, the fact that old people who
have once settled down in a kind Of
groove of life, can not be uusettled
therefrom, even for a few day's with
out danger to health and life itself.
They may have, .perhaps, their regu
lar time for getting up in the morn
ing, certain methods of ablution, cer
tain kinds and qualities of food and
drink, certain hours for taking these,
certain times for rest, exercise, aud
recreation, and a hundred Other
things, which, taken separately, may
seem but trifles, but taken in the ag
gregate make up their lives, and they
know nnd feel that they must not be
unsettled; The wheels of life will
run long in grooves, but soon run out
over rough. Irregular roads. 11 ab it Sx
whet ber good or bad, arc easily form
ell whim one is young, but when one
gets up in years it is terribly difficult
ami ol'linies dangerous to set them
aside. Therefor*', study, if you would
live long, to be regular in your habits
of life in every v\ ay, and lei your
regularity have a good tendency.
Know One AnolhCf*.
Henry Ward Heecher. in one of his
sermons, discussing.the duty of the
members of a church to know one
another, jays that churches are like
hotels; cue If io'l'gcr has his own room
and calls for what he needs, and does
not feel hojiud to take care of any of
the other -lodgers, lie says better
that they are "spiritual boarding?
houses." The occupants of the dif
ferent rooms do not know each other
even at the table, Pew-holders arc
not acquainted with other pew-hold
ers, and those that go to the Lord's
Table do hot recognize neighbois on
the right and on the left.
But the best thing we have met
with oh this Subject is the saying of
ti Kosten in n on a sermon on "Recog
nition in Heaven." lie told the
preacher he would fpre?ch more to
the point if he would "preach about
ihn Vvcognhioh bj'-friehtls /icir." Sa.d
he: "1 have been a member of this
church during twenty years and 1 do
not know any of the members." Is
(ids the spirit of the Gospel of Je
sus Christ? Are isolation, coldness,
dignity that five/cs, pride of person
and so on the fruits of the Spirit of
holiness? What a curious "brother
boor' is t bat where each is stranger
to t he 01 her.
