On our line. and, with the booming of
one heavy piece, which still sent its de

was sublime in the extreme. one never
to be forgotten by its witnesses. But
our - march to night was long and rapid,
circuituous and weatisome in the ex

by retreat, we plodded silently along the
sandy roads, through fields and forests,
ever watching for the long looked for

no river yet, though morning's dawn is
streaking the eastern sky, and a mi
me-its pause seized HS U, Moments sleep.
About daylight, the regiment having
halted, and all fallen asleep just as they
sat down in their places, one of those in

was inaugurated somewhere in the col.

THE GOODNESS OF Goo.—•• God is love":
said the Anomie of love; -and twhie:l
have also heard the same; of
ped that voice of consolation frehif.4he
firmament of. Ilnly Scripture,—"Gnd is
love." Every phase of human affection
—the parent's anxious solicitude and
tender yearning, the charities of. the
common hearth, the brother's enthusias
tic support, the bosom friend's warm re
sponse to confidence—all are mere strag
gling rays of His infinite light; feeble,
partial emanations from the fulness of,
love. which in Him is wrap, up. What
are the evidences of this love t ,f God?
They are written on the . face of nature
and on the face of Scriptures. Every
fragmentary glean' of happiness which
glances across the path of men is a testis
many of the I , ve of Gnd to a fallen
world. We taste Ifisgoatinesl in the many
enjoyments which He has strewed
around the way-side of' our daily life, in
the fair landscape, in the morning
prime. in ti.e music of birds, in the t i
vetsified beauty of the seasons. Scrip.
tare represents Him as caring for the
fatherless and widow ; ministering at.
the bed-side of the ai:As; wiping away
the tears from the eyes of the afflicted;
and abile He rolls the planet along his
fiery path,-healing the broken in heart,
and giving medicine to heal their sick
But nil these twtnifestat ions of love are
feeble, dim, inadequate: the starlight
glimmerings of Divine goodness, not -the
going forth of that goodness. in its noon
day strength. Look at the Crow Mice
more. and view it now in the light of that
oracle: “lle loved us. and sent his Son
to he the propitiation fur our sins."—

to examine a-State map he will see that
this route lies very directly in a line be

way of.either the Catawissa road and its
eastern connections, or one of the Sun
bury roads, and its eastern connectione.
It seems almost certain that the result of
the present real Railroad war for fa
vorable cMections with the Union Pa
cific Railroafl must result in the construe

ix now compelled to fake over the Penn
sylvania road. byway of Pi tsbarg.flar

way of E , ie, Salamanca Elmira, and the

by the PittslutrE and other western pa

elapsed since the seed from which sprang
that massive trunk was committed to the
earth. Many are the storms and winds
with which it has battled. Yet it has
proudly maintained its po:ition, and is
properly styled the monarch of the syl

the student. It cannot become matured
in an instant. It requires time and de
termination. In the first place, a desire
