GEO. M. YOOVII
No numerous lands of broad decree,
Yielding rich and golden fruit—
No title of renown for me,
No hoarded wealth' do I compute—
No shelt'ring roof above my head,
No cprpet 'neath my feet—
Save the blue sky, the stars own bed,
And mossy grass Co sweet;
O'er this I tread at early morn,
Beneath my arch of blue— •
And Rothchild's, would I then scorn,
Compared with pearls of dew.
I'm not the one to crave a crown,
Nor rings of glittering hue,
Nor Alexander's great renown—
The star among so few.
Who viewed the world with haughty prido
And called it all his own;
And knew not there was more beside
The world that be had known.
Oh, no ! I do not crave the care
These rich possessions bring—
Their choicest prizes bright and fair,
Beneath my feet I'd fling.
Pitter, patter, drearily dropped the
rain upon the pavement. The north
east wind was blowing chill, and I was
sitting' at the window, flattening my nose
upon the pane, and looking up, hoping
to see a rift in the clouds, with the prom
ise of a change, for I was sick of the
monotony of the slowly, steadily ; con
stantly drop, drop, dropping, with its
heavy, dull and changeless sound—of
the ceaseless, chill, November rain. But
the clouds were heavy, sombre and dark,
_as though again the flood-gates of heav
en were let loose to pour upon the earth
another deluge. Cloud-gazing, there•
fore, afforded me no relief, and with a
dismal yawn, I turned my attention to
the street, where my vision rested on a
lamp-post across the pavement, and just
opposite my window,
Abstractedly I gized upon it with a
mind as dull and heavy as the atmos
phere without. The lamp-post was mo
tionless, and so was I. It was entirely
barren of all thought, and so was I But
I was sheltered by a hospitable roof, yet
fretting myself over 'the dismal state of
the weather, while it was pelted by the
driving fury of the storm, yet keeping
up the impurturbable gravity of its de
meanor. At last I became dimly con
scious that I was passing into the won
derful land of dreams. Sleep was steal
ing o'er my senses, and I became obliv
ious to all that was passing around me.
Still, strange to . say, I seemed to hear
the dropping of the rain, and to see the
lantp•post looming up before me.
For a time, nothing seemed changed•
but presently the lamp on the top of the
post began gradually to change its ap
pearance, first, from an octagon, it grew
to be round; then, just upon the top of
this sphere, there sprung up a little tuft
of yellow hair. This tuft gradually
spread out. until it covered all the sphere,
except that part immediately facing me.
This part, then, began to assume the out
line of a human face, that of a funny lit
tle, old man. Forehead, eyes, nose,
mouth, chin, and the round, fat cheeks,
grew mere and more distinct., until even
the smallest wrinkle was plainly dis
cernable. Next there sprang out upon
the chin a little, gray tuft of whiskers,
for all the world like the tuft on the un
der jaw of a goat, and then the figure
smiled a merry smile that spoke him at
once to be as kind-hearted a little, old
soul hs you would meet in many a day's
searching among the busy haunts of
He leered and winked at me in a most
remarkable manner, ns though desirous
of picking up a conversatinh with me.
At first I was inclined to resent such
familiarity on the part of an entire
stranger, but then his grimaces were so
very comical; his face so very cheery;
his eyes so very bright, and his smile so
very winning, that I threw aside all re
serve, and thus addressed him:—
THE RIGHT KIND OF RELIGION.—Rev.
Alexander Clark, in his "Gospel Trees,"
says: "Unless your religion changes
you from a mummy to a man, makes you
honest in business, pious behind coun
ters, temperate at dinner tables, loyal
to your country, affectionate to your
family, neighborly at the ballot box, pa
tient in affliction, humble, cheerful and
hopeful everywhere and always; unless
it links you in brotherhood to the poor
est of God's children, unless it leads you
on errands of mercy to hovels and hos
pitals and prisons, as well as to cushion
ed pews and sacramental boards, unless
you love Christ on week days, as well as
worship Him on Sabbath days—then
your religion is spurious, hypocritical
and abhorrent—a refuge of lies! Its
sounding brass and tinkling cymbal en
tice but the giddy-hearted, and warn the
wise to beware."
A Wisconsin paper gives an account
of the capture in northern . Montana of
"an animal of a species wholly unknown
to naturalists, which is claimed by some
to be a relic of the mastodon." This mar
vellous creature is only two years old,
but stands seven feet high.
AT the age of fifty, Mr. Peabody wad

Danger of Delay.
At the time of revivals of religion in
one of the cities of our country, during
last winter and spring, there lived a
young man who, though he had been re
ligiously educated by a pious mother,
neglected to attend any of the extra
meetings of the churches till near the
last. Then, however, he was induced,
he can hardly tell why, to attend a morn
ing prayer-meeting. In that meeting a
lady rose and asked prayers for the con'
version of her son, not knowing that he
was in the room. Then the son rose and
asked prayers for himself. This so af
fected our young friend, that he sprang
to his feet, scarcely knowig what he was
doing, and said he felt that it would be
wrong to ask Christians to pray for him,
as he.had so long resisted the influence
of the Holy Spitit. This remark did,
of course, interest Christians, who earn
estly prayed for his conversion. Those
prayers were, in a few days, answered
in the hopeful conversion of our young
friend. He, in turn, as is common in
such cases, felt an ardent desire for the
conversion of his associates in sin.—
Among these was an intimate friend,
whom I will call C. His efforts with him
wore unremitted, constantly placing be
fore his mind the beauties of a holy life,
and striving to win him from the pleas
ures of sin, urging him, at every oppor
tunity, to give his heart to Christ. To
these exhortations C. always listened
with respectful attention often accom
panied his friend to meeting, and seem
ed almost persuaded to seek an interest
in Christ. And, 0, that I could leave
the subject here full of hope. But no;
truth compels me•to proceed. On a Sab
bath evening, near the close of summer,
our young friend met C. and another
young man in the street. It was Sab
bath evening. He invited both to his
room, and there renewed his efforts to
convince them of the great superiority
of the pleasure derived from obedience
to the commends of God to those of an
opposite character, bringing to his aid
all the truths at his command to enforce
his argument. He then prayed with and
for them, earnestly commending their
case to God. C. listened to the last and
then replied,—T. you have many times
conversed with the on this subject, and
I know you are in the right, and should
I die as I am, I should be lost. But I
am young, and must have my fun, avid
shall make up lily-mind to - take - the-risk:
and not.pay attention to religion at pres
ent. Ile was a brakeman on the rail
road. On the next evening, as the train
was coming into the city where C. lived,
near the depot, he fell from the car upoh
which he was stationed, the train passed
over him, he was fatally injured, the
surgeons gave no hope that he would live
but a short time. His friend T. was .
soon at his side. When C. saw him, he
said: You see T. that my fun was of
short duration. He was urged to look
to Christ even then. But he replied, too
late, and soon expired.
The Lawyers and the Cats.
Two Arkansas lawyers were domesti
cated in the rude hotel of a country
town. The hotel was crowded, and the
room alloted to our two heroes was also
occupied by six or eight others. Shake
down beds, enough to accomodate the
guests, were disposed about the room,
against the four walls, leaving an open
space in the centre of the apartment.
Judge Clark lay with his head to the
north, on one side, and Judge Thomas
lay with his head to the south, on the
other side of the room. So far as that
room was concerned, it might be said
that their heads represented the north
and south poles, respectively.-
All the other beds in the room were
occupied. The central part of the room
was deemed neutral ground, in which
the occupants of the different 'beds had
equal rights. Here, in piattiresque
•confusion, lay the boots, hats, coats and
breeches of the sleepers. There were
no windows, and though the door was
open, there being no moon, the night
wits very dark in that room.
The wily lawyers, who had been oppo
sing counsel in a case tried in the town
court that day, and had opposed each
other with the contumacity of wild pigs,
were now the very incarnations of
meekness, for when the hungry swarm
of mosquitoes settled down and bit them
on the one cheek, they slowly turned the
other to be bitten also.
But hush ! hark !
Adeep sound strikes the ear like a ri
sing knell !
Judges Clark and Thomas were wide
awake, and sitting bolt upright in an
Again the startling cry :
'''There's a d—d cat!" whispered
"Scat, you !" hissed Thomas.
Cat paid no attention to these demon
strations, but gave vent to another

"There, I told you she was on your

The idea now entered the heads of
both the lawyers, that by the exereiSe

on the cat, and totally demoralize him.
Practically each determined to file "a
motion to quash" the eat's attachment
for that room.
Each kept the plan to himself, and, in
the dark, unable to see each other, pre
pared for action.
Strange as it may appear, it is never
theless true, that the same plan sugges
ted itself to both. In words, the plan
would be about as follows ;
The yowler is evidently looking and
calling for another cat, with whom lie
has made an appointment. I will imi
tate a cat, and this cat will think t'other
cat's around. This cat will come toward
me, and when he shall have arrived
within reach, I'll blaze away with any
thing I can get hold of, and knock the
mew-sic out of him.
So each of the portly judges, noise
lessly as cream comes to the surface of
the milk ) hoisted himself onto his hands
and knees, and, hippopotamus fashion,
advanced to the neutral ground occupy
ing the central portion of the room,
Arriving there. Judge Clark selected
a boot jack, and Judge Thomas a heavy
cot-hide boot, from the head, and set

Clark tightened his grip on the boot
jack, throwing up his head, gaits vent to
a prolonged and unearthly "Ye-ow-owl''
that would have reflected credit Upon
ten of the largest kind of cats.

six feet away, "he's immediately close

This is the difference between the 'Chris
tian and the world. Most men know
nothing beyond 'what they ne'e; their
lovely world is all in all to them—its
outer beauty, not its hidden loVeliness.
Prosperity, adversity, sadness, it is all
the same, they struggle thfough it all
alone. and when old age Dome's; alid the
Companions of early life are gone, they
feel that they are solitary. In all this
deep, strange world, they never iiieet, or .
but for a moment, the spirit of it all who

actly the opposite of this that Makes a
Christian. kiove where he Will, there is
tl thbught and a presence, which he can
not pt t aside, he is "haunted forever by
the eternal thind." God looks out hpon
him from the 'Clear sky, and through the
thick darkness—is present in the rain
drop that triCkles throtigti the bi•anohes,
and in the tempest that crashes down
the forest. A living Redeemer stands
beside him, goes with him, talks with
him as A than with his friend. The em
phatic description of a life of spirituali-.
ty is--" Enoch walked with God."
