THEY ARE GOING ONE BY ONE.
BY I. AUGUSTUS JONES.
They are Roiue one by one,
The friends I fondljr love;
They are going to their home
In a brighter world above.
There is sorrow in my heart,
And the tear-drops'dini my eyes,
As I watch them nil depart
To their home beyond the skies.
They are going one by one,
The young, the fair the brave,
Their work on earth is done—
Their rest is iu the grave.
We see the vacant chair—
We hear their voice no more—
We miss their love and care,
And their early loss deplore.
They are going one by one.
The father and the mother,
The wife, the child, companion, friend,
The sister and the brother.
But we shall meet again
When life's ties are riven;
Nor Borrow, sickness, death or pain.
Can mar our joy in Heaven.
Angry words 1 O let them never
From the tongue unbridled slip;
May the heart's best impulse ever
Check them, e're they soil the lip.
Love is much too pure and holy;
Friendship is too sacred far.
For a moment's reckless folly
Thus to desolate and mar.
Angry words are lightly spoken;
Bitterest thoughts are rashly stirred;
Brightest links of life are broken
By a single angry word.
-A- GOOD STORY.
THE SILEIT DEACOM'B OPIN
When the next summer comes, with
its heat, and dust, and languor, and the
tired spirit, fainting by the way, cries
out for the wings of a dove, go up to
W , among the hills made sacred
to Natare, where the hurry and anxi
ety of commerce are unknown, and
the silent Sundays are never broken by
the whizzing of machinery, or defiled
by its smoke and steam. You will see
no Newport belles, no Belmont equip
ages, nor will you be bidden to any
' hops' —they don't ' hop' there —but
you will be taken into a holy, calm
rest, such as the pilgrim found in the
chamber which was called ' Peace.' It
you have toiled hard enough to de
serve rest, you will find it in W ;
if not, you will seek it anywhere in
It is the most silent place in the
world; and were it not for the farmer
turning his furrows, or casting his
seed, you might imagine yourself ul
ready where 'Sabbaths never end.'—
Perhaps it is only because Nature
reigns with such calm dignity, and
echoes back every sound so lovingly,
that W seems silent in compari
son with other places.
Entering the neat, capacious church,
fatherly and motherly faces meet your
eye on every hand, and you will soon
forget that you are a stranger.
Yonder, in the square pow sits Dea
con Lee; you would know ho was a
deacon if he had not told you. Some
men are born deacons—what a pity
that some should entor the holy office
who are not! Deacon Lee was not a
native of VV , but wont there to till
a farm left him by an aged relative
some twenty years ago—-about the time
Deacon Bell died, leaving a sad void
in the church and the parsouage—for
he was a pillar in Zion, and a strong
arm to his pastor. After seeking long
to fill his place, the mind of the church
united on the new-comer, who, by his
solemnity, piety, and zeal, seemed cre
ated for the place. He was a man of
few words, rarely ever talking; BO that
the boys called him at first 'a grum
old man.' But they soon changed
their opinion; for he set apart a tree of
summer sweetings and one of hell-pears
for their express benefit, as they went
to and from school, and surprised them
by a fine swing, which lie had hung
for them in his walnut grove So the
verdict of that and each succeeding
generation of boys was, that although
the deacon never talked, he was a kind
and genial man, and a lover of children.
Every boy, for twenty years hack, had
been his shepherd, his watchman, or
his assistant farmer; feoling it a high
honor to hitch his horse on Sunday, or
to drive his manure cart on Monday;
and all because they saw, through the
thick veil of reserve, the love that
burned and glowed in his heart.
Deacon Lee's minister trusted in
him and the church felt her temporal
affairs safe in his hands, and the world
honored his stern consistency.
There was a serpent in Eden, and a
Judas in that thrice-blessed band who
walked and talkod with our Redeemer
on earth, and who saw his glory ming
led with his humanity; why, then,
need we wonder that one man. subtile
and treacherous, hid himself in the
calm verdure of W crawling out
ready to spring upon them with his
poisoned fangs? Upright, faithful, and
oarnest as were the people, they were
not proof against flattery and decep
tion. There camo among them one
quite unused to their unostentatious
way of serving God, and ambitious, as
he said, 'of seeing them make some
stir in the world ' Wo know from
God's Word that 'one sinner destroy
oth much good,' and yet wo are often
annoyed at the wide" results of ono
man's evil work in the church. One
may sow tares which a hundred can
not pluck out; and therefore doos it
become God's children to stay the en
omy in his efforts.
He who aimed at the life of the Gos
pel Church in W was 'dead, while
he had a name to live.' lie scorned
many of the humble ones whose crown
is waiting them on high. He hated
the humbling doctrines of the Cross,
and desired to see man glorified and
exalted; he rebelled against tho ' iron
bare' which he choso to call tho bond
of love which separate God's chosen
and obedient ones from tho world that
lieth in wickedness. Ho declared that
tho millcnium could never dawn till
all Christians were as one—by which
ho meant that, for the sake of union,
right must yield to wrong—as if he
were of the number who loved and
longed for the appearing of Christ! —
He began stealthily to sow his poison
ous seeds among tho j'ounger and
weaker of the flock, and when he saw
the first token of their taking root, he
grow bold, and began to cast them in
on the strong high hills. But here he
found resistance; the soil which had
borne such rich harvests of graco re
pelled his seed from its bosom; and be
came to tbe mad resolve to assail the
deacon, and try how he would receive
it. If he, with his piety, zeal and in
: opened his bosom to it, the end
was easily attainod. The minister was
not worthy consideration in the mat
ter —ministers are so readily put out
of tho way if thoy do not yield to un
godliness. If he proved a dead senti
nel, he would not molest him; if alive
and jealous of his Master's honor, one
bullet would settle him for ever.
In pursuance of his ' liberal views'
and his deep-laid plan, our valiant re
former rode up and fastened his horse
before the unpretending dwelling of
Deacon Leo. Ushered into the neat
' keeping room' to await his coming
from the harvest-field, his restless spirit
was almost awed by the silence which
reigned there The tall clock in the
corner, with its ever sailing ship, tick
ed painfully loud; and even the buz
zing of the few flies on the panes an
noyed him. He suffered much the
same oppression as do those who wait
long in a silent, darkened room the
coming of a minister to a funeral. He
wished for, and then dreaded the good
man, being not quitefwure of a warm
reception. He had just decided on a
clandestine flight, when the door open
ed and the deacon entered, as calm and
neat as if toil had never ruffled his
spirits or soiled his garments. After
the usual greetings, and a dead, awful
pause, tho visitor began —think of the
wiles of Satan !—by lamenting the lovv
state of religion, asking tho good man
why his church had enjoyed no rovi
val for three or four years! What
cared he for God's set time to visit
Zion ? Ho was far more deeply into
rested in the opening of a new stage
road to the Summit, and in gotting up
stock in the projected hotel there.
' Now what do you think is the cause
of things being dull here? Do you
know?' he persisted in askiug.
Tho deacon was not ready to give
his opinion, and. after a little thought,
frankly answered, ' No, I don't.'
' Do you think the church is alive to
tho work before them?'
'No, I don't.'
' Do you think the minister fully re
alizes the solemnity of his work ?'
' No, I don't.'
A twinkle was seen in the eye of
this troubler in Zion, and, taking cour
age, he asked.
4 Do you think Mr. B. a very extraor
dinary man ?'
' No, I don't.'
' Do you think his sermon on ' Their
eyes were holden,' anything wonder
'No, I don't.'
Making bold, after all this encour
agement in monosyllables, he asked,
' Then don't you think we had better
dismiss this man and 'hire' another?'
The old deacon started as if shot
with an arrow, and, in a toue far loud
er than bis wont, shouted,'No, I don't.'
' Why,' cried the amazed visitor,
'you agree with me in all I have said,
don't you ?'
' No, I don't.'
'You talk so little, sir,' replied tbe
guest, not a little abashed, ' that no
one can find out what you do mean.'
' I talked enough once,' replied the
old man, rising to his feet, 'for six
praying Christians; but thirty years
ago, I got my heart humbled and my
tongue bridled, and ever since that
IVe walked soflly before God. I then
made vows solemn as eternity; and
don't you tempt me to break them !'
The troubler was startled at the
earnestness of the hitherto silent, im
movable man, and asked, ' What hap
pened to you thirty years ago ?'
'Well, sir, I'll tell you. I was drawn
SEGHFiM® ©(OiUBIFJs JHBSJSJo
into a scheme just like this of yours,
to uproot one of God's servants from
the field in which He had planted him.
In my blindness I fancied it as a little
thing to remove one of the 'stars'
which Jesus holds in his right hand, if
thereby my ear could he tickled by
more flowery words, and the pews filled
by those who turned away from the
simplicity of the Gospel. I and the
men that led rao—for I admit that I
was a dupe and a tool —flattered our
selves that we were conscientious. We
thought we wero doing God service
when we drove that holy man fron.
uis pulpit, and his work, and said wo
considered his labor ended in B ,
where I then lived. We groaned be-"
cause there was no revival, while wo'
were gossipping about and criticising,
and crushing instead of upholding by
our efforts and our praj - ere, the instru
ment at whose hand we harshly de
manded the blessing. Well, sir, lie
could not drag on the chariot of salva
tion with half a dozen of us taunting
j him for his weakness, while we hung
on as a dead weight to the wheels; l.e
had not the power of the Spirit, and
could not couvert men; so wc hunted
him like a deer, till, torn and bleeding,
he fled into a covert to die. Scarcely
had ho gone, when God came among
us by Xlis Spirit to show that he had
blessed the labors of his dear, rejected
servant. Our own hearts were broken
and our wayward children converted,
and I resolved at a convenient season
to visit my former pastor and confess
my sin, and thank him for his faithful
ness to my wayward sons, which, like
long-buried seed, had now sprung
But God denied me that relief, that
He might teach me a lesson every
child of his ought to learn, that ho

my old pastor was ill, and taking my
oldest son with me, set out on a twen
ty-five mile's rido to sec him. It was
evening when 1 arrived, and his wife,
with the spirit which any true woman
ought to exhibit towards me who so
wronged her husband denied mo admit
tance to his chamber. She said, and
her words were as arrows to my soul :
'He may bo dying, and the sight of
your face might add to his anguish!'
'Had it come to this,' 1 said to my
self, 'that the man whose labors had,
through Christ, brought me into llis
fold, whose hand had buried me in
baptism, who hud consoled my spirit
in a terrible bereavement, and .vho
bad, till designing men bad alienau d
us, been to me as a brother -that this
man could not die in peace with my
face before him. God pity me !' I cried,
'what have I done !'
I confessed my sin to that meek wo
man, and implored her for Christ's
sake to let mo kneel before His dying
servant, and receive his forgiveness.
What did I euro then whether the
pews by the door wero rented or not?
I would gladly have taken this whole
family to my home forever as my own
flesh and blood, but no such happiness
was before mo.
'As I entered the room of the blessed
warrior, whose armor was just fulling
from his limbs, he opened his languid
oyes and said, 'Brother Lee ! brother
Lee!' I bent over him and sobbed out,
'My pastor, my pastor!' Then rais
ing his wiiite hand, he said in a deep,
impressing voice, 'Touch not mine
anointed, and do my prophets no
I spoke tendorly to him, told him I
had come to confess my sin, and bring
some of his fruit to him, calling my
son to tell him how he found Christ.
But he was unconscious of all around;
the sight of my face had brought the
last pang of earth to his spirit.
I kissed his brow, and told him how
dear he had been to me; I craved his
pardon for my unfaithfulness, and
promised to care for his widow and
fatherless little ones; but bis only reply,
murmured as if in a troubled dream,
'Touch not mine anointed, and do
my prophets no harm.'
I staid by him all night, and at day
break I closed his eyes I offered his
widow a house to live in the remainder
of her days; but like a heroine she
''l freely forgive you. But my chil
dren, who enter deeply into father's
anguish, shall never see me so regard
less of his memory as to take anything
from those who caused it. He has left
us all with his covenant, God, and He
will care for us.'
'Well, sir, those dying words sound
ed in my ears from that coffin and from
that grave. When I slept, Christ stood
before me in ray dreams, saying :
'Touch not mine anointed, and do
my prophets no harm.'
These words followed me till I rea
lized fully the esteem in which Christ
I holds those men who have given up all
for his sake, and I vowed to love them
evermore for His sake, even if they
I are not perfect. And since that day,
sir, I have talked less than before, and

little word 'no,' but sometimes it re
