It was a splendid room. Itich curtains
swept to the floor in graceful folds, half
excluding the light, and shedding its soft
hues over the fine old paintings on the
walls, and over the broad mirrors that
reflect all that taste can accomplish by
the hand of wealth. Books, the rarest
and most costly, were around, in every
form of gorgeous binding and gilding, and
among them, glittering_ in ornament, lay
a magnificent Bible—a Bible too beautiful
in its appointments, too showy, too orna
mental, ever to have been meant to be
read—a Bible which every visitor should
take up and exclaim, "What a beautiful
edition! what superb bindings!" and then
lay it down again.
And the master of the house was loung
ing on a sofa, looking over a late review
—for he was a man of leisure, taste and
reading—but then, as to reading the Bible!
—that forms, we suppose, uo part of the
pretentions of a man of letters. The
Bible—certainly he considered it a very
respectable book—a fine specimen of an
cient literature—an admirable book of
moral precepts—but then, as to its divine
origin, he had not exactly made up his
mind, some parts seemed strange and in
consistent to his reason—others were
very revolting to his taste—true, he had
never studied it very attentively, yet such
was his yeneral impression about it—but
on the whole, he thought it well enough
to keep an elegant copy on his drawing
So much for one picture—now for an
Come with us into the little dark alley,
and up a flight of ruinous stairs. It is a
bitter cold night, and the wind and snow
might drive through the crevices of the
poor room, were it not that careful hands
had stopped them with paper or cloth.
But for all this little carefulness, the room
is bitter cold; cold even with those decay
ing brands on the hearth, which that
sorrowful woman is trying to kindle with
her breath. Do you see that pale little
thin girl, with large bright eyes, who is
crouching so near her mother—harkl how
she coughs—now listen:
"Mary, my dear child," says the mother,
"do keep that shawl close about you; you
are cold, I know," and the woman shivers
as she speaks.
"No mother, not very," replied the
child, again relapsing into that hollow,
ominous cough—"l wish you wouldn't
make me always wear your shawl when
it is cold, mother."
"Dear child, you need it most—how
you cough to-night," replies the mother
—"lt really don't seem right for me to
send you up that long, cold street, now
your shoes have grown so poor, too; I
must go myself, after this."

voice from the scanty bed in the corner,

more tire to-night."
"Why can't you, mother? there are

HE CANE TOO LATE.
He came too late! the toast had dried
Before the fire too long;
The cakes were scorched upon the side,
And everything was wrong!
She scorned to wait all night for one
Who lingered on his way,
And so she took her tea alone,
And cleared the things away.
Ile came too late! at once he felt
The supper hour was o'er;
Indifference in her calm smile dwelt,
She closed the pantry door.
The table cloth had passed away,
No dishes could he see;
She met him, and her words were gay—
She never spoke of tea.
He came too late! the subtle chords
Of patience were unbound—
Not by offense of spoken words,
But by the slights that wound.
She knew he would say nothing now
That could the past repay;
She bade him go and milk the cow,
And coldly turned away.
He came too late! the fragrant steam
Of tea had long since flown;
The flies had fallen in the cream,
The bread was cold as stone.
And when, with w • • I

erty. Look at her now as she is to-night.
She knows full well that the pale, bright
eyed girl whose hollow cough constantly
rings in her cars, is far from well. :She
knows that cold, and hunger, and expo
sure of every kind are surely wasting
away her life—and yet what can she do?
Poor soul, how many times she has calcu
lated her little resources, to see if she
could pay a doctor. met medicine
for Mary, yet, all in vain. She knows that
timely medicine, case, the fresh air and
warmth might save her—but she knows
all these thinp.s are out of the question fir
her. She feels, too, as a mother would
feel when she sees her once rosy, happy
little boy, becoming pale, and anxious and
fretful—and even when he teases her most,
she only stops a moment and strokes his
poor little thin cheeks and thinks what a
happy little fellow he once was, till she
has not a heart to reprove him. And all
this day she has toiled with a sick and
fretful baby in her lap, and her little shiv
ering, hungry boy at her side, whom poor
Mary , s patient artifices can not always
keep quiet; she has toiled over the last
piece of work which she can procure from
the shop, for the man has told her that
after this he can furnish no more, and the
little money that is to come from this is
alvady portioned out in her own mind,
and after that she has uo human prospects
But yet that woman's face is quiet,
patient. Nay, you may even see in her
suffering eye something like peace, and
whence comes it? I will tell you.
There is a Bible iu that room, as well
as in the rich man's apartment. Not
:pleudidly bound, to be sure, but faithfully
read—a plain. homely, much-worn book.
Harken now while she says to her chil
dren, "Listen to me, dear children, and I
will read you something out of this book.
'Let not your hearts be troubled; in my
Father's house are many mansions.' So
you see, my children. we shall not always
live in this little, cold, dark room. Jesus
Christ has promised to take us to a better
"Shall we be warm there all day," says
the little boy earnestly, "and shall we
have enough to eat?"
"Yes, dear child," says the mother;
"listen to what the Bible says: They
shall hunger no more, neither thirst any
more; for the Lamb which is in the midst
of them shall feed them; and God shall
wipe away all tears from their eyes.' "
"I am glad of that," said little Mary;
-'for mother, I never can bear to see you
"But mother," says little Henry,
"won't God send us something to cat,
"See," says the mother, "what the Bible
says: 'Seek ye not what ye shall eat s nor
what ye shall drink, neither be of anxious
mind; for your Father knoweth that ye
have need of these things.'"
"But, mother," says little Mary, "if
God is our Father, and loves us, what
does he let us be so poor for?"
"Nay," says the mother, "our dear
Lord Jesus Christ was as poor as we are,
and God certainly loved him."
"Was he, mother?"
"Yes, children, do you remember he
said, 'The Son of Man bath not where to
lay his head.' And it tells us more than ,
once that Jesus was hungry when there '
was none to give him food."
"O mother! what would you do without
the Bible?" says Mary.
Now if the rich man who had not yet
made up his mind what to think of the
Bible should visit this poor woman, and
ask her on what she grounded her belief
of its truth, what could she answer?
Could she give the argument from mira
cles and prophecy? Can she account for
all the changes which might have taken
place in it through translators and copy
ists, and prove that we have a genuine
and uncorrupted version? Not she! But
how then does she know that it is true?
How, say you? How does she know that
she has warm life-blood in her heart?
How does she know that there is such a
thing as sunshine? She does not believe
these things, she knows them; and in like
manner, with a deep heart-consciousness,
she is certain that the words of her Bible
are truth and life. Is it by reasoning that
the frightened child, bewildered in the
dark, knows its mother's voice? No!
Nor is it by reasoning that the forlorn
and distressed human heart knows the
voice of its Saviour and is still.
Go, when the child is lying in its
mother's arms, and looking up trustfully
in her face, and see if you can puzzle him
with metaphysical difficulties about per-
sonal identity until you can make him
think that it is not his mother. Your
reasonings may be conclusive, your argu
ments unanswerable; but, after all, the I ,
child secs his mother there, and feels her
arms around him, and is quiet. I.Tnrea-
soning belief on the subject is preciiely
the same kind which the little child of
Christianity feels in the existence of its
Saviour, and the reality of those blessed
truths which he has told in his word.

BATTLE OF MISSIONARY RIDGE.
The next morninv (the 25t1t) broke bright
and cold, and the November sun shone
over the mountains and the plain. Grant
had ordered a general assault on Mission
ary Hide. Befort• him rose the tall moun
tain range, on which could he seen. -lit-
teriw , in the sunlight, the bayonets of
nearly fifty thousand practical soldiers,
trained in mountain warfare. In the cen
tre was Bragg's head-quarters: along the
crest of the hills ran lines of earth-works
and fi_dled trees: and the open mouths of
thirty heavy cannon, besides lesser artil
lery, threatened death to the bold assailant
who should attempt to climb the height.
The Union army, the rebel works no long
er hid in mist, came out in hold distinct
ness on that fair November day, and the
two commanders watched each other's
motions from their elevated stations, pre
pared for the Sinai shock. Meantime at
dawn Sherman's guns were heard on the
northern side of the Ridge, and from day
light until noon that active leader was
slowly pressing on along the mountains
to cut Bragg off from his base of supplies
at Chickamauga. He was as yet lighting
the battle alone; for Hooker had not ar
rived to attack on the right, delayed by
the rough roads, and the centre under
Thomas had not stirred. Bragg about
three o'clock weakened his centre by send
ing a large force to cat off Sherman.
Grant saw the opportunity. Hooker was
now coming up, and the commander, swift
to seize his moment of attack, ordered a
-, eneral charge up the hill. Never was
there such a charge. The Army of the
Cumberland, which had all day been
chained behind its entrenchments like a
dangerous mastiff; and had heard with
impatience the bold advance of Sherman,
now broke into a run up the steep declivi
ty, swept over entrenchment and rifle-pits,
drove the frightened enemy out of their
defenses, and with a wild shout followed
them so closely that they had no time to
pause. Sheridan, who led the way, looked
back and saw a huge times of bayonets
glittering in the sunlight, and swelling
like a wave up the mountain side. Even
he describes the spectacle as terriffic. But
to the enemy the charge was fatal. In
vain they poured down a plunging tire
from thirty cannon into the glittering sea
of steel; in vain their musketry flashed
from every side. The thick line of the
Army of the Cumberland never wavered
or paused; where they could not run they
climbed or crept; they refused to stop even
at the command of their officers, and,
moved by the instinct of victory, drove
the enemy in wild flight before them to the
very crest of the Ridge. Here they swept
over the powerful intrenchments, shot
down the gunners at their cannon, cap
tured whole regiments of panic-stricken
soldiers, and broke in six places those
lines hich had so long frowned upon
them in the valley of the Eagle's Nest.
There was now victory all along the line.
Hooker, Sherman, Thomas, had been suc
cessful. Bragg tied, leaving six thousand
prisoners and all his guns, and was closely
pursued by Sheridan and Sherman. The
news of the great victory was flashed over
the country; again the name of Grant was
uttered with gratitude by every loyal
tongue; thanksgiving was ()tiered in the
churches; and once more peace seemed
near. Again Grant urged an immediate
advance ou Mobile, and again was rebuked
for his imprOdence. But the people now
acknowledged their leader; they began to
reflect upon Belmont, Paducah, Donelson,
Shiloh, Vicksburg, Chattanooga, and they
felt that a military genius had arisen who
saw what other men could not see, and
who possessed the intellect, force, and in
genuity necessary to carry out his own
conceptions. The President sent Grant
his honest congratulations; Congress voted
him thanks; Burnside was saved; the cot
ton States lay open to the Union forces;
and at length nothing remained of the re
bellion but that central power which had
so long ruled at Richmond, sustained by
the military skill of Lee.—EUGENE LAW

THERE never was a party in existence
in this country which redeemed its pledges
as faithfully as has the Republican.
When it was organized it pledged itself to
maintain the national life. The crushed
slaveholder's rebellion is the evidence of
the fulfillment of this covenant. During
that struggle the Republican party agreed
to pay the national debt and take care of
the survivors of the war for the Union.
It is doing this every day.
THE Church of England is a curious ,
affair. Being connected with the State, '!
" there is money in it." A late trans
there illustrates one of its features.
A rectory and vicarage were to be filled,
and the preferment was put up at auction.
The auctioneer stated the inducements:
Two churches to serve, a mile and a half
apart; the rector's income, $3,540; society
was good and hunting veryfair; one hun
; dred pounds would pay for a curate to
visit the sick, bury tke dead, ste., leaving
I a balance of 0,000. The highest bid was
! $:24,000, which was not deemed sufficient,
and the sale was postponed.

It cannot be disguised that marriage . is
au alarming episode in a man's life. Many
a brave fellow who would face a battery
without flinching, and smile amidst the
deaillioq hail of musketry, finds his heart
forsaking him in that magic mfunent when
he changes front a !ray- young bachelor in

porter has just passed through the ordeal,
and this is what befell hint.
The ceremony was over, and the music
and dancing d, Me. Tie company had re
tired and the bride had sought her cham
ber. The young, man had been a model
boy from his youth upward. He had
learned a great many things, but, having
no sisters, had never learned the mysteries
of a lady's toilet.
Ascending the stairs to the chamber, he
opened the door and peeped cautiously in,
gas burned dimly, and weird shadows
played around the room ; he entered and
closed the door. On his left the bed was
shrouded in many a fold of lace, but thro'
the bar he perceived on the far side, out
lined beneath the covering, a form beauti
ful in its symmetry. On his right rose a
huge pyramid of skirts and snowy linen,
crowned by a throng of slender bars fash
ioned like a bell, and, to the uninitiated
observer, resembling the old wire cage set
every evening in the pantry as a snare for
What the mischief', that ?" he
thought ; but he said nothing, restraining
curiosity and proceeding to disrobe. It
must be confessed, however, that his fears
were the least bit excited, and the perspi
ration began to bead his forehead. Ap
proaching the toilet table to 1 iy down his
cravat, his hand struck ;upon the lower
half of a human jaw—a semi-circle of
oTinning teeth staring him in the face.
Ile started back in terror, but said noth
ing—only the simple ejaculation " the
devil !" But it wasn't only false teeth ;
nevertheless the cold chills ran over him,
and he was steadying his hand to unpin
his collar, when his eyes encountered two
half globes of some white linen substance,
resting on a toilet table, and a great braid
of hair, flanked by a huge coil of hair be

bewildered ; but, as he did so, his feet
struck against a pair of flesh-colored tights
suspended from a chair, and, with their
patent calves and padding, looking like

He was turning to the bed to inquire,
when he stumbled over the hump of a
Grecian Bend, and falling, struck a little
stand, knocking from it a tumbler of
water, out of which rolled a glass eye.
"Gracious heavens !" he frantically
ejaculated, " is there nothing left of her ?"
and, springing to his feet, bounded thro'
the door, calling for the briclenictitis to came
and put his wife together again. His
cries for help soon brought the household
around him, to whom he detailed his grie
vances. The assurance that everything
was right finally pacified him, and after
much persuasion he went back to the mys
terious chamber, and by this time has
probably become familiar with a fashion
able toilet.—Nete Orleans Picayune.
Not long since, a green looking Ver
monter, walking into the office of Dr. C.
T. Jackson, the chemist, Boston:
"Dr. Jackson, I presume," said he.
"May I close the door?" and he did so,
and having looked behind the sofa and
satisfied himself no one else was in the
room, lie placed a large bundle, done up
in a yellow bandana, ou the table and
"There doctor, look at that."
"Well," said the doctor, "I see it."
"What do you call that, doctor."
"I call it iron pyrites;"
"What!" said the man, "isn't that
"No," said the doctor, "it's good for
nothing; it's pyrites;" and putting some
over the fire on a shovel it evaporated up
"Wall," said the poor fellow, with a
woe-begone look, "there's a widder woman
up town has a whole hill full of that, and
I've been and married her!"
Is a Late address by Brigham Young,
in his Tabernacle, he said:
"A great many ask me how many wives
I have; but, to tell the honest truth, I
never thought enough about it to stop and
think. But I will get up the facts in the
case and tell everybody, so that they may
stop asking me these questions. I sup
pose I have a dozen or fifteen that I am
taking care of; perhaps a few more, I do
not know, and I care nothing about it. I
try to do good, and I try to save the peo

GETTYSBURG seems destined to take a
high place among the permanent summer
resorts of the 'Middle States. The natural
beauty of its scenery; the memorials of its
great battle; the graves of the heroic dead;
the health-giving properties of its waters,
form a combination of attractions; while
its new and spacieui hotel will be opened
