I was struck with an observation made
by a blind negro, yesterday.—l was sitting
with 'a companion in his sanctum, when
the old man entered,led by a little boy.—
My friend was evidently in a bad humor,
for he saluted him as he was entering, with
"hollow, you're in the wrong door."
The poor beggar, as he turned away,
touching his hat with great respect, said in
a tone of resignation, which I believe was
sincere—"l'll die one of these days; then rn
get in at the right door."
Tupper—nest to Soldmon in proverbial
"Never giro up--it is wiser and better
Always to hope, than once to despair„
and when this is felt in the heart, a sweet hope
it is to acknowledge; a glorious assurance,
when the soul can repose in confidence on
an admission through the right door--thicee
lestial gates—after this mortal has put on im
mortality. This hope will enable , the
weary of this world's strife and trouble, to
live through the "fitful fever" here,
"Although the vine is fruit deny,
The budding fig-tree droop and die—
No oil thC olive yield"
the wounded in heart; the peniecuted and
abused; the humble, modest, unappreciated;
the poor—those that "ye have with you' *al-
Ways;" the "poor in spirit," whom the' Savr
for bath blessed, may uplift their gaze to
heaven with glad smiles to "the door," de
scribed by Milton:
Heaven opened Wide
Her ever-dining gates, harmonious sotmds
On golden hinges turning."
"Then I'll get in at the right door."—l'd
rather have this assurance than all the
wealth the world can give—all its joy, hon
or and renown; rather this belief, than be
the idol of a crowd, the *gazed . upon by the
multitude, or the hero of an age. With the
poor beggar's words engraved upon my
heart and part and parcel of it, ;could death
have any terrors? Would it not be haled
as a relief from toil and trouble, sin and
misery? (the accompaniments of social com
munication with the world—the natural ef
fects on all vile Mizigle with it.) The right

ecdoto of old Peter Cartwright, 'a - noiet.
Methodist preacher; which Illustiatei this
While he was pfeaching, years ago, Gen
eral Jackson - entered the chiirch, when a
pastor, seated in the pulpit, gaVe his "brother
Cartwright" a nudge, and whispered that the
old hero had just gime in, as much as to ad
vise, "Now be particular in what you saY:"
But Peter, to the astonishment of every one,
exclaimed: "Who cares for General 44-
son? He'll go to hell as soon as anybody, if
he doesn't repent!"
When the sermon—a• home-made one—
was ended: a friend asked the General what
he thoUght of that rough old fellow, and re
ceived for an answer, "Sir, give me twenty
thousand such men and I'll whip the world,
including the devil."

We must make - room for one more :moo
dote fiom the - same writer. The•bold - and
stern mien of the preacher above alluded to,
finds a happy contrast in the wit'sina tadfof
the one we are abeilt to introduce:
"Weremember to haVe heard of tkpreacher
now residing in Illinois, who once brOught
the hats off a crowd as follows: At a,earei
nreting in Indiana, where a large congre
gation had gathered, some were disposed to
keep their" hats on in the time of divine ser
vice. This brother attempted to. get allhats
off, but failed by singly asking them to take
them off. A gang of' rowdies seemed re
solved to keep their hats on, and stay in the .
congregation, when the preacher said: ' There
are different customs existing among the peo
ple of our country in reference to wearing
their hilts. Some wear their hats in pub
lic congregations and some -do:not. It is
proper for every one to conform to the cus
toms of the people-with whom they worship.
Nevertheless, if educatlin, or the afflicting
circumstances ofany, should require them
to wear their hats, we have no objections.'
Here a few hats came. off. 'The Quakers,
continued the preacher, 'we 'believe, wear
their hats everywhere;' (then some more hats
disappeared, for the rowdies hated the Qua
kers,) there is an afflicting disease prevalent

The service was opened in the usual manner
and the parson was . very eloquent, and
dwelt for some time upon the necessity.of
speedy repebtance on the part of the singer
if wished to enjoy salvation. Nothing
unusual occurred till *near the close of the
exercises, when he observisi i irotlier . Clark,
(the same man who had the adventaire with
the bear in Potter County, recently) seated '
near a sturdy Vermonter, clad in a red
shirt, furiously chewing an enormous quid
of tobacco, and squirting the juice all around
until the floor was completely flooded. Im
mediately on this discovery, the idea—some
may calljt wicked—entered his head to per
petrate 'a joke on Brother Clarke, and be
called on him to close the meeting with
prayer, knowing very well that he Would i

moment, but there was no other alternative,
and then slowly unfolded his clean handker
chief, placed it under his knees, end then '
offered up a prayer remarkable for its brev

quietly watching him from bellihd-the desk,
and smiling at the joke.
After themeeting was dismissed, and they
were passing out, Parson Bacon sidled upto
Brother Clarke and innocently observed:

juice around in such a vulgar manner, sna

out without spoiling their dresses." '
"Yes," replied Brother Clarke in apiti
ful tone, "it is indeed ridiculous. Janet look
how my pocket handixrchief is ruined!" at
the same time drawing, it from his pocket
empletely saturated with the tllthyfluid.

was obligod to turn -aside and enjoy a sly
