As beautiful and grand ;
Are they more in their regal glory,
Than those of our own fair land ?
As I watch the sinking glory
That crowns the royal head
Of the god of day, as he falls to sleep
On his billowy, goldsu bed ;
Clouds of Heaton l s oignistin
Bonttered.by purple folds;
Isles of slmehy sillier, floetitig
O'er n sea' of liquid gold
How my soul drinks in thu splendor'
Of the proudly dying ono
Surely 'tie a glimmering vision
Of the land beyond the'sun.
And looking out from my window
Our the hills in the west,
I wish that I—in tke eve of life's day—
Might sink as grandly to rest•,
If we could reach that beauteous sea
With its shining, reefy strand,
And in its fairy shallops
Cross to the Spirit-land;
If only that sunset of splendor
Would grant a tiny erc‘ivn
To weary ones, 't would help to raise
The cross that bears us'down.
Colfax on Temperance.
At a recent session 'of the Grand
Lodge of Good Templava of California
a public meeting was held, at which
Vice President Colfax was•present and
made a brief address. After alluding
to his :connection with the Sons of
Tempetance in times past, and ex
pressing his warm sympttlik in heart,

ment, be said :
"My Mind goes back at this moment ;
as I stand before you, to the time when
I first entered on the pathway ,of
peraneo. It was not in the heat of a
great excitement; it was' not by the
persuasive appeal of eono'nian whbio
eloquent words entranced my bet
and convinced my judgment; but it
Was just as I was stepping upon the
threslfold of manhood a quarter of a
century in the past. lii the Western
region where I wont in ,my boyhood
dayi3,•in common with I had from
time to time imbibed the intoxicating
bowl,, not, perhaps,' as, some people
say, 'to be worse for-it,' but as.a grad,

,reinember,' of, , yet
sometimes tooling the exhilarating of
fecta of it. Just as I was entering up
on my manhood, a young man who
started as I'did to make his way in
life, and carve out his own pathway,
of a warm, soeial - and generous dispo
sition, who loved his companions, with
a fervor of heart and an abandon that
you see so often in those addicted to
strong drink, but,who had gone faster
and further in the road in which I wa s
traveling than I bad, sent for me to
come to big bedside. I stood by his
bedside, and could see his soul tearing
itself away from his body in the con
vulsive agonies of delirium tremens,
while be Was Cursing his tett!, and ask
ing the Creator to darliti hire to all
eternity. I stood by that metilorithlb
death-bed, and I resolved therC, With
no ono but my Creator for witness,
that. God help me, while I lived I
would not tasto'or handle the unclean
thing. How many times I'liave,re.
juiced in public as well as in private
life, that I made that resolution, in the
early years of my manhood. I think
it is a great and noble privilege to be
enrolled among those who, with clear
heads and sober brains, perform the
duties that fall to their lot in life to
perform. You have your ample re
ward for this investment in health;
you have it in the thrift of the blood
in your veins, that the inebriate never
feels even in the - exhilaration of his
Moments of intoxication; you haVe it
in the consciousness and the conviction
that you aro living, in that respect at
least, as our Creator intended you
should live, in seeking to be elevated
toward him iii'whose image you are
made, and not to ,be degraded to the
image of the brute. You have eman
cipated yourselves from the thralldom
of this practice that first is like threads
of silk that infant hands can , snap, but
which stiffen with older manhood as if
they were gyVes of iron upon therm—,
I rejoice at every poor pilgrim on the
seine journey with oursetveS, traveling
to the same tomb, who is, saved frOm
the inevitable fate that awaits the man
who indulges in the habitual use of in

life of the person; but the slavery of
the intoxicating bowl affects not only
I the life of the person, but, in many ca

"This is not the only vice; but I
Speak of it because it is so universal
in its effects, so "deMoralizing, so de
grading, and sometimes so sad in its
results. I know this world is full of
vices; but there are few of them that
send the man home at midnight to
treat with indignity, and brutal in
sult, and with violent force, the wife to
whom he has pledged the love and af
fection of hie life. There aro few vi
ces that make children sometimes
worse than if they were orphans.—
There are few.viees that fill the jails
and asylums aethieone deplorable vice
of this and ovary other, land. I have
sometimes thought if this world of Mfrs

sober. braid,' and with intellect not
stupefied by the fumes of alcohol,.eve
ry one of us Could perform our. duties
in our sphere of life, whatever it might
bo, what a paradise would be made of
this world of ours! It would not look
like the same world, but would look
film some new Eden. Instead of see
ing mon dragged down, we would see
thorn elevated, and performing their
circle of duties far more usefully to the
community and the country than now.
"I bid you God-speed in all your, la:

"The gentleman then proceeded to
any that teniperence men bad to en
counter opposition; and it was oven
said to be unpopular to be a total ab
stinence meti: Ile, hoWever, had'not
realized that: The popularity which
good men should seek was the popu
larity that 'told them in their own
hearts that, they might be understOnd,
however they might be assailed, that
they were endeavoring to do good to
their follow-man, and won for them the
smile of. Him whose , smile. was sun

the applause of, the whole world:" •
The Company We 'Keep.
That a "man is known by the com
pany ho keeps" is a trite phrase
enough ; it is so true that it has be
come trueism; and half its force is lost
because of its faMiliarity. Most men
are not only known by the company
they keep, but they become part of
that company. The mind easily re
ceives impressions; and' it is difficult
to be with the•silly and foolish also. •
Men' choose their companions from
different motives, and generally, of
nears°, with different results. ft is
better to be the companion of few than
Of many, and to follow the advice given
by Thilektiry in his Miscellanies, to as
sociate with those who are really more
clever, wiser, or better placed than
one's self. That it is better to rever
ence than despise or look `dOwn on
your friend. A little man will only
choose smaller men than himself—we
are, of course, speaking mentally.
Perhaps women suffer even more
than men, from making a he'd choice
of companions, but both are very se
verely and dangerously hurt by them.
St. Augustine has a good simile with
regard to bad company 'by, which' we
May all profit. "Bad . company," lie
wrote, "is like a; rail driven into a post,
which, after the first or second blow,
may be drawn out, with very little diffi
culty, but, being driven once up to the
head, the pincers can hot take hold to
draw it out, which can only be done
by the destruction of thd Wood."
Of course it, is needless to define bad
,company. We,,all of us, men nod wo•
men, boys and girls,-feel instinctively
when we have fallen in with dangerous
'or unwdi•tliy Misheiatea; if we eh'oatie

Just 89:in the high tides, barks of

reside in Springfield,, Illinois, some
time in April, 1837; He had already
served ono term in, the Legislature,
and had then recently been appointed.
by President Vali Buren, Register of
the Land Office of that place. At the
date'abovo mentioned he was a little r
active; Wiry fellow about five feet, and
weighing not more than 110 pounds:—
He had a beardless, boyish face, dark
blue lustrous eyes, a short, thick neck,
square shoulders, 11 nd large, round
bushy head, which seemed much 'die
proportioned to the size of his fratne,
He dressed plainly and rather sloven
ly, for his wardrobe was scanty, and
finances at a low ebb. Altogether, he
presented quite a youthful, and at first
view, unprepossessing appearance.—
But he was uncommonly quick and
Vivacious in conversation, and had an
exuberant flow of animal spirts, which
rendered him a delightful Companion.
Of a peculiarly social turn, ho soon
made' the acquaintance and -Won the
heart of every citizen of the town; and
what is more, like Themistocles of
Athens, he knew them all by, name.—
He attended all the local political
gatheringS, was present at all the vil
lage frolics, and took part in all manly
Pastimes of the day. He is said to
have boon especially fond of wrestling,
and could throw i man of twice his
weight. He paid assiduous court to
the elderly: dames, and danced with'

peculiar qualities 'of bead and heart
which secure to their possessor the

matters of public concern. Even at
that early period of his fortunes, 'his
Democratic supporters, considered him
a prodigy of political wisdom, consult
ed him as they would an , oracle, and
predicted for him &high destiny.' Pot
the more aspiring among his Whig ac•
quitintances, being jealous, perhaps, of
his' rising repUtation, ridiculed his
pretensions.. Mr. Douglas was then
