If we lore him as we should, •
All things, even sorrow, .
Work together for ear good.
When our friends are taken from na,
'fly the relentless hind of death;
When we listen to thelr farewells,' •
Wateh'thelr feeble fluttering breath,
We forietols Christ who told na,
For the weary there was rest,
That he'dfiniy enne before us
To the mansion of the blest.
That serves the ley river, • .
Which wo all must cross ere long,
Stand• the heavenly, golden city. i 4

Senator 'Cameron's Speecti.
Oar senior Senator, Mr. Cameron.
delivered a very excellent Speech in

,The basis of . Senator .CamerOn's
speech - was a resolution offered b . }
that it is expedient • to reduim ,
the revenue of the Government h 3
, Lbolishing all existing interno! rove

high wines and:distilled spirits. „
He said that . tli public debt "way.
r dueed more than` one hundred mil
lions of dollars last year, and that i!
the present rate of "taxation is eon
,inued. be whole debt will be pithi
•itf in ten or twelve years. He.think,
it iS.not wiSe.or-prud,nt to "tax tlit
people so heavily to pay it off in so
He rernarks:
No one will deny the wisdom of
thelegislators.who inaugurated tht
scsteu of reducing the debt, or - .tht.
patriotism'of, , the -people who hay.
endured a heavy lo'd . of taxation tt,.
pay the. interest and reduce theprin

have been causes of wonder. to' tht
world, and _have sewn the strength.
, ionesty, and prudence attainable un
der a republican form of goveromen
in Matters where it was thought t.t .

course -thus pursued by .Corigre,is.

It has reduced - the prineipal . sum .o

the ability orthe . country not only
to carry on a most :expensive intei

. 0n the National banking question ,
and the relation of the banks to the-
National debt, he says : -
The second great interest of the
people, which will very shortly be di
rectly affected by the , large - and in
creasing surplus revenues of the
country, is the system - of national
banks, and this through the decrease
of the public indebtedness'by the ap-'
plication orthe annual surplus to its
payment. The large annual reduc
tion of the ' public debt will very
shortly begin to affect the confidence
of the public in' the continuation of
the system. It will increase public -
anxieties and excite their fears as to
a substitution of any other system
for this that has proven so accepta
ble and so valuable to the country. •
