The lurid sun hung low and red,
Above the plains of Monterey,
Where 'mong the dying and the dead,
A young and wounded soldier lay :
I Still from the cannon's iron throat,
Hoarse thunder burst and gleaming flame ;
And blended with the bugle's note,
The far otf shout of triumph came.
But heeded not that shout of pride.
The soldier stretched upon the plain,
; For oozed away life's purple tide,
And fever burned in ev'ry vein :
i His thoughts were in his native land,
Among the friends he held most dear ;
Again he felt the breezes bland,
And saw the waters gliding near.
"Alas," he sighed, "delirious dream,
I hose scenes shall never greet me more ;
O ! for one draught from that sweet stream
That sings beside my father's door."
Just then a Mason passing by,
By the sweet angel, Mercy, sent,
Caught the poor youth's desponding sigh,
And listened to his sad lament.
lie brought him water, bright and clear,
And bound with skill each bleeding wound;
Then bore him in his breast sincere
Far from that bloody battle ground.
Long death and life together strove,
And oft life's lamp burned dim and low ;
But in his faithful work of love.
Ne'er did the Mason weary grow.
He marked with deep, intense delight,
Health smile upon the grateful youth.
And heard him bless that Order bright,
Whose lovely guiding star is Truth—
That Order whose pure sons are fquad,
W hcre'er the foot of man does rove,
Still pouring richest blessings round—
The ministers of peace and love.
From Godey's Lady's Book.
Or, the RewiirA cf the Daughter-in-law.
As the Autumn approached the husband
men of Judah prepared to sow their seed.
Ail things were ready, and they waited
lor the f.rst rain. The mouth of November
was fast passing awav, as each morning the
eyes of the inhabitants of Bethlehem Judah
were turned to the west, hoping to desert
the gathering cloud impending over the
Mediterranean. Not a speck was seen in
the skies, and the glorious sun continued
daily to ascend to his meridian at d scorch
the dusty hills of Judah. At length the
vernal equinox arrived that should have
brought the latter rain, hut it came not.
The weils were dry, and the ci-terns had
no water. The tlocks fainted in the fields
and the herdsmen returned to their masters
and sat down before them in sorrow.
Elinielech.Uie chief of trie Bethlehemites,
looked upon Naomi, the wife of Ins youth,
and beheid her womanly form yielding to
the famine. He scarcely dared to cusi a
steady glance upon his two sons, Mali lon
and Chilton.who a vear ago, were two vig
orou* sprouts shooting up :n his house, and
promising to overshadow and refresh ilie
old age of theii parents, and maintain the
supremacy of the.ir family among their
peof le. Elimelcch ascended southward to
the heights lhat overlooked tiie Dead Sea
and commanded a view of the land of .Vlonb.
He beheld its fields whitening lo the har
vest, and its crystal streams sparkling in the
sun. And although it was the land of the
Gentiles, where all the people bowed down
lo Cheemosh, vet he resolved to go (hither,
that ho might obtain bread and wafer, and
his family five, lit quickly found a grave
HI this 1 tnd of idolatry, and Naomi was left
n widow with two sons blooming into man
hood. Oteying the dictates of nature,
which triumph over conventional rules, the
young men looked upon the ruddy daugh
ters of Vioaband loved them. Ttiey chose
from among them Ruth and Ospah for
wives. In a few years Naomi was render
ed unutterably hitter by the loss of her two
sons and the bereavement of her daughters
in law, who were doubly afflicted by being
left childless. In this hour Naomi turned
her thoughts towards her people in Bethle
hem-Judah, front whence the report had
teached her that plenty had again blessed
her land. She arose to depart to her own
country, and Ruth and Orpali accompanied
her to the borders of Moab.
Hero Naomi proposed to take leave of
the two young widows; and her address to
them is one of the most touching passages
evei pronounced by the hps of woman.—
The essence of woman's heart and hopes,
as God linth made them, is disclosed in it.
She begins with a profound and touching ex
pression of gratitude—' The Lord deal
kindly with you, as ye have dealt with the
dead and with wie.' What an exalted char
acter of these two young widows docs the
expression suggest. Their conduct to- i
wards their husbands had been such as to
satisfy even their mother in law, and to be
come the measure of the divine blessing
which she desired should be given to them ;
—'The lord deal kindly with you as ye, i
have dealt with the dead and with me.'
But when she comes to specify the bless
ingsoflhe Lord which she deems a just
reward for their fidelity and kindness to
their husbands and herself, she descends
into the secret fountain ofclhe female heart,
and utteis the precious truth which dwells
unchangably there. ' The Lord grant that
v may find rest, each in the house of her
husband Her words recalled to these
young widows the happiucs* of former
days; and as their mother in law gave them
■ a parting kiss, they lified up their voices
and wept, and said—' We wili return with
thee to thy people.' The reply of' Naomi
glows with the great living truth, (hat wo
j man can find her natural and permanent
rest only in the house of her husband. And
Naomi said— 1 VV hy vviii ye go with me?
I have no more sons that nav be your bus
hands; i am a widow: twill had I a husband,
and should I also have sous, would ye tarry
lor them till they are grown? ' And when
she iiad uttered these words, 'they lified up
their voices and wept again.' Orpha
heaikened to Ihe advice of her mother in
' l lvv > £ ilvu her a parting kiss, and returned
to her own people in Moab. But Kuth
clave to Naomi. Now cum nit need a still
mute earnest struggle between these two
remarkable women. Naomi was unwil
img tnat the beauty and bloom of youth
eooimJ he m anted in her service; and she
took the advantage of the example of Or
pha, sind said—'Behold, thy sister hath
gone back unio her people and unto her
1 god:-: return thou ufier her.' For three
thousand years the answer of Ruth to the
earnest and disinterested advice of Naomi.
Ii h stood forth in the history of filial nfTec
lion and duty as the sun in the firmament
of heaven. Thoie is no parallel to it in
J liio records of humanity. And Ruth said,
'Kntreat me not to leave tlee or to return
irom f I owing after lime; fur whither thou
guest, 1 will go, thy people shall be my
I people, and thy God my God, where thou
diest will I die and there will I be buried;
lite lord do so to me, and more also, if
aught but death shall part thee and nie.'
1 o these words Naomi made no reply ;
: they were unanswered ; and silently the
two widows journeyed on foot towards Beth
i lehein Judah. When the relict of Elime
lech appeared among her people , they said
in amazement—'ls this Naomi ? The sound
of her name used to suggest to us her beau
ity and happiness. She departed from us
with her husband arid sons, and lo she re
turns to us in sorrow, and with but one poor
hand maiden.'
Arid Naomi -aid—•Call nie not Naomi,
but Mara; fur the Almighty hath dealt
very bitterly with me.' Truly adaik cloud
hung over the ho hc of Naomi and Ruth.
I hey had given brilliant examples of the
brightest of womanly virtues fidelity to
their husband and to Ruth ; and now God
was about to honor her with verv great hon
or, —even to make her one of the builders
, of the house of David.
Naomi and Ru'.h arrived at Bethlehem
in the spring, in the beginning of the bar
ley harvest; and this apparently email mat
ter was the opening of the magnificent
' designs of Providence towards Ruth, the
Moahiless widow. The custom of the
country permitted poor young women to
glean in,the fields, and the pressing wants
of Naomi quickly prompted the excellent
heart of Ruth to say to her—'Let ma now
go to the field and glean ears of corn after
him in whose sight I shall find grace. And
Naomi said—Go, my drtUghter.'
The first adventure of Ruth suggests
clearly the magnificent destiny which a
wails her. I pon returning in the evening
she related to Naomi the beautiful and
prophetic incidents of the day. 'lt was mv
hap,' she said 'to light on a part of the
field that belonged to Boaz. And when
he came out to see tire reapers he inquired
'whose damsel is ibis ?'—an J being inform
ed, he said to the young men. 'Let her
glean even among the sheaveaand reproach
her nut ; and let fall also sonic of the hand
fuls on purpose for her, and leave them
that she may glean them and rebuke her
not.' Then turning to rne he said, 'Go
not, my daughter to glean in any other field,
but abide here last by my maidens, i have
charged the young men that they shall
not touch thee ; and when thou art athirst,
go and drink of that wLicit the young
men have drawn from the wells. For
it hath fully been shown me all that thou
hast done unto thy mother in law since the
death of thy husband. The Lord recom
pense thy work, and a full reward he giv
en thee of the God of Israel,under whose
wings thou art come to trust. At meal
lime come thou hither, and eat of (he
bread and dip thy morsel in the vinegar,'
nnd as I sat with the maids, he reached
me parched eoni with his own hands.'
As Uuilt related these incidents, Hie
Li.niched and withered countenance of Na
otni glowed with visit ns of hope ; and she
saw the slar of her family about to rise a
gain. She perceived, m ihe language and
conduct of Bo iz, and particularly in that
'handful of parchtd coin,' his young affec
tion for (1.0 enchanting Moabitess wid
ow.— At the same lime slio remembered
that Boaz was a kinsman of hei husband, n
mighty man of wealth, which instantly
brought to her mind the law in Israel, that
the childless widow should become the
wife of the brother or next nearest of kin
of the deceased, lor the purpose of raising
up seed on the estate of the departed, so
that it might not pass out of the original
family. She was now old, and now child
less ; but Ruth, in the eye of the law, in hei
place; and she said—'My daughter, shall
I not seek rest for thee, that it may be wel
with thee ?' And the ardent and dutifu
daughter in law replied (lor she had seer
and loved Boaz, the lord of the rich fieldi
in which she had gleaned, and with tin
instinct of wonnn on such occasions, saw
the bearing of Naomi's question,) 4 All that
thou sayest unto me I will do.'
I he introduction of Ruth to Boaz is too
beautiful, delicate, dangerous and sublime
ly virtuous to be recited here. Read it in
the Book of Ruth, and you will see that
Boaz rivals Joseph in that virtue for
which his renown has come down to us
through 3,500 years. But there was
one daik cloud impending over the hopes
and wishes of Boaz and Ruth. The law
of Israel gave Ruth to the nearest kins
mun of the deceased brother , and Boaz
was only second of kin. Boaz feared God
as well as loved Ruth ; and observe with
what dignify and frankness he unfolds to !
her the appalling fact that another had a
right to her by law. 'h is trne,' said he
to Ruth, '.hat I am thy near kinsman : how
bei:, there is a kinsman nearet than I.
Tarry tins night, and it shall be in the
morning that it iie will perform unto thee
the part of a kinsman, well let him do
the kinsman's part. But irhe will not do
the part of a kinsman to thee, then will I
as the Lord liveth.' Ruth related to N a
omi the result of ihis interview with Boaz,
and her reply is proof of woman's sagaci
ty and judgment in matters of the affec
tions. -Sit still my daughter, until thou
know how the matter w ill fall, fur the man
will not be in rest until be have finished
the thing this day.'
She -pake truly, for in an hour Boaz took
measures to test the matter legally. He
went up to the gate, and sal him down
there and behold tiie kinsman came bv,
unto whom he said—'Ho ! such a one,
turn aside and sit down here. 1 thought
to advertise thee, that Naomi, the widow
of our brother Elimelech, selleth her estate.
If thou will redeem it. redeem it ; if not, I
am next of kin to thee.' And he said '1
will redeem it.'
M hen this kinsman, Mr. Ho ! Such at
one' declared that he would buy it, he
seems not to have known that a young and
blooming widow was a necessary part of
the purchase. He supposed that the aged
and neglected Naomi was theonlv emliar
rassment; and it might have occurred to him
that he might wholly disrespect her as a
wife ; ar.d at Iter death, without children,
the estate of her former husband would
coine to him and his children. Boaz im
mediately reveals to him the condition of
the purchase. bat day thou buyest the
field of Naomi, thou must buy it also of
Ruth the Vlonbitess, the wife of the dead,
to raise up the name of the dead upon his
inheiitauce. And the kinsman answered
* Then I will not redeem it.'
I he heart ot Boaz beat high at this an
swer, and he immediately turned to the el
ders present in the gate, said—'Ye are
witnesses this day that I have bought all
that was Elimelech s. Moreover, Ruth
the Moabitess, the widow of Mahion, have !
I purchased to be mv wife, and to raise tip '
the name of the dead upon his inheritance.'
And all the penplu said— 'ice are wit
nesses. Ihe Lord make the woman that
iias come into thy house like Rachael and
nke Leah, which two did build thi9 house
of Israel : and do thou worthily, and be
famous in Bethlehem. 1
Behold now the reward of fidelity in the
wife, and of aff-ctionate duty in the daugh
ter in law. The aged Naomi flourishes
ignin in her old age, and receives into her
bosom the son of Boaz and Ruth, who
ire transccndently honored in being the
incestors of David the king, and Messiah
the prince of Peace, in whose veins, there- i
[ore, ran the blood of the Jew from Boaz,
uul of the Gentile from Ruth.
