Oh, no I there is no liamin hell!
Said the Universalist bell,
Look up toheaven this holy day,
Attend Gila-church and lettm the Way;
There are no tires, no fiends to blight
The hope the heart that's right,
No hell! DO hell I no hell! no hell!

Do well! de well! do well! do well I
Bald the Unitarian bell ;

And work :stone way along the road.
With faith In God and faith in mar,
And hope th Christ, where hope began.
Do well! de well! do well! do well!

Swell! swell I swell! swelll ye waters swell!
RaelaiMed in peals, the Baptist bell:
While faint . In Christ therm can MIT,

To show the world unfaltering faith,
In what the sacred Scriptures saitb.
Swell ! swell! &weal swell l ye waters swell!
Buchan :led In:peals the Baptist bell.
Farewell( farewell I basetworld, farewell!
Cried out the Presbyterian bell! •
Life Is a boon to mortals given,
And there is nothing true but Heaven ;
Do not provoke the avenging rod I
Come here and learn the:will of Do&
Farewell ! farewell! bate world, farewell
Cried sent the Presbyterian belL
We tell tIX tenth, the thins Nee tell !

Our Lord 11118 made aalvat lon free;
None need be lost, on land or see ;
Repent,, have hope, snd then
Be eased, pnd praise the :Lord—amen
The truthtwe tell I we tell! we tell I
Shouted the Method!elle bell.
Excel! creel! In love exeel!
Cblmed the Episcopalian bell!
This Is the church not built on sand,

Chimed the. Eplacoriallan
Look down, ye .alnts In Heaven that dwell:
Shouted the Roman.Catholle bell :
Beam o'er the battlement+ of bliss,
And deign to Weise a word like this
Let mortals kneel before this shrine;
Here la the water, here the wine.
Look down, ye saints, in Heaven that dwell I
Exclaimed the Roman Catholic bell.
The mighty wood that crowns the hill,
Dripped crtmeon drops the live-long day,
And through the torest deep and chill.
The autumn shadows crept away.
Two lbvere wandered side by aide,
And watched the &candor of the Rood ;
Two lovers prayed •t evotide,
And thanked God that all was good.
A south wind from the summer-land,
Walled through the forest low and long;
The maiden grasped her lever's band,
And shuddered at the thought of wrong.
The bugle, tram the distant vale,
Sent up its blasts in MO* Or woe ;
The lover murmured, cal& and pale,
"My country , mile me-'-I must go!"
Thera Where the mighti-at forest shade
Swept out the glory of the sun,
Two lovers went and parting prayed.
"Thy will, 0 God, not.ours, be done!"
A year flew past, a swift-winged year,
And once again the Mod sublime
Dripped erimsom drops on autumn's bier.
And talk reproachfully:of Time.
Two grave-mounds, nestled side by side,
Lay in the shadow of the wood ;
Two lovers slept at eventide,
And all that God had done vrea good.
To-day, all nu and down the land,
Are countless hosts of early graves—
In forests deep, on ocean's Strand—
BM, Heaven rejoice! the old Vag waves!
And though with life's blight crimson flood,
()mown fair earth Is drenched and stained ;
Yet, through the flow of heroes' blood,
The Nation's freedom has been gained I
And from the valleys of the skies,
Heaven's marshaled hosts look down to day,
And glory in earth's sacrifice—
For earth's dark enrse la washed away.

My brief holiday was over, and with a ehrng, I pre

Items a very rare event fat me tq leave the little
villiee whose name bends this story. My father
had' been the et* , reddest physician there, from
the time when I was a bolsterotm school boy, up to
the hoar when, Id Lae prefeselonsl rounds, be fell
dead with heart disease in the main street, leaving,
me, his heretofore assistant; sole heir to his name,
property, and practice. Tee years before, they had
carried my dear mother to , the little churchyard,
and installed Mrs, Watson bousekeepea in her place.
The village's were willing to let the young doctor
step in his father's place beside their sick beds,
and so for five years I had 'tilled his duties. In all
those five years I; had taken! no holiday, so when an
invitation came ! from my :old college friend and
since correspondent, Clement Payne, to spend
Christmas with him, at his father's place, on the
Hudson, I was sorely tempted to necept,!apd finally
concluded to dq so. It Was literally_Christmas I
spent, leaving home at midnight on the llith, and me
friend's house exactly twenty-four boars later. ft
had bepn a pleasant break in the monotony of my
life, and as I stood at sunrise on the Hopedale pldt
fotm, I was sure my recreation !would give me new
vigor for my daily duties.
I turned to descend the Steps leading to the road,
some impulse, nay a Providence, led me to look in
at the window of the rootM by courtesy " Ladles'
Boom," of the station. Hewes cold and desolate.
No fire was lighted, and there was no furniture, un
less the hard wooden benches against the wall could
be so denominated. But staled up on one of these
benches, sleeping soundly, lay a strange child. His
dress of rich tne-trimmed Velvet, the warm fur cup,
long gaiters and mittens, spoke of wealth and care,
and the pale face, round which clustered short curls
of sunny brown, was roundjwith health and wonder
fully beatitifnl. -He was no Hopedale child; I knew
themelL My professionah.lnstinet made my heart
thrill with a sodden shook; as I caught sight of the
pale face, for I well knew the danger of that deep
sleep in the biting winterlair. How long had he
been there? Was be already dead ? were the ques
tions I asked myself, as I strode across the room,
and lifted him in my arms,/ No breath came from
the white ilps,.no..ttumb attire wrist, only a faint,
very faint flattering tinder tea fingers -as I pressed
them over the baby heart Mantling him warmly
in my heavy cloak, I tore down the steps, and raced
along the road homewardat a paeo that would have
considerably amazed my patieuts, bad any of them
been awake at that early hOur.
Allowing Mrs. Watarm.notime for amazement, I
pressed herinto the Servite, and In what she called
a jiffy," we had the little form undressed, in my
bed, and undergoing the Most vigorous treatment.
It was so long before we were successful, that my
heart almost failed me; bit at Ittatthe faint heart
throbs grew stronger, miler came to the pale lips
and cheeks, and a pair of large brown eyes appeared
froth under the heavily fringed Os I had matched
so anxiously. • • -

to 'lath Ms nap, Re was safe now, I knew; so
tearing him to Mrs. Watson's are ; mho by this
time knew as much abotit him as did, I

"Ellen went In the cars. We saw her goonarunta

and she got in the cars with Mr. Williams."
"Who Is Mr. Williams?" I said, eagerly catching
at a name.
" Ellen's husband. Our milkman he was afore

And who was Ellen?"
"My nurse."

I took him from the bed and began to dress Lim,
and explain his position; bti era When be und.w.
stood that he must give up the Australian Journey,
and was made to feel something of his mat tier's
despair at losing him, he could give me no clue by
which to find his home. Orandpa, grandma, Mam

and the three children, were all mentioned, and
persistent questtoning revealed that Le lived In a

Eleven month. had this dear little treasnre b•en
an inmate of our bonne when there came Into my
life a nest dream of hope and happiness. About live
miles from lloy.edale there rerld and had lived
for many long years, an eccentric old hachelor, by
the name of Hermon Graham. home, Lceliavec,

nearly a mile Iron any other residenes ; and here,

mit-like seclusion, though We wealth would have
commanded ever? advantage that aomety could of
fer. It wee early In November that I was summon
ed to attend this odd genius, professionally The
little note brought to my oilice by an elderly loan
on horseback, was signed "Lillian Graham," and
asked my Immediate attention.
It seas a lung, cold drive, but the man represented
his master as very ill, so I prepared to obey the
"I bad no Idea that your master had a daughter,"
1 said, referring to my note.
"That's master's niece," was the reply; "a
sweer-.pone. E sco. s hc coo, es
down one visit sometimes from Ifer fatifet's pave
near Albany. They were burnt out, her father's
folks, last Winter, and the family all went to Europe
while the new house was bitildlng. They came home
a fortnight ago, but they won't go to the new house
till spring, so some of them s boarding la New Yptk,
and some in Albany, and Miss Lillian she's cont . ., to
spend the winter with her uncle. They're all corn
leg down for tliristeas, I expect."
I toned my now patient very ill, and for a week
my visits were frequent, and more than once I passed
the whole ni.tht by Li- 1,14dr. Ido no: mein
for a love talc, FO I will not weary my reader with
the why and wherefore of my heart bending In ail
ei.trice to Lillian Graham's chsrms. ller hean.y,
gentleness, and winning grace touched my hear: as
no woman had ever before thritbd it, and before
that weary week of anxiety and watching was. over
I loved her. As -her uncle began to recover, my
visits slid from a professional capacity to a' social:
one, and I saw that my welcome was a sincere ono ,
!Atm both the old gentleman and the lair girl, wlio , e
devotion to his sick bed proved her love. I was
agreeably surprised to tied the hermit neither so
savage or inaccessible as he had been represented to
me. Ile had a painful chronic disorder; his manner
was brusque, and his voice often harsh, but he could
soften, and 1 was able to glee him relief from pain,
for which be repayed me by gracious reception.
Christmas was drawing near, and I had resolved
to lay my heart before Lillian, and ask her to be my
wife, 1 was heir to considerable property left by
my father. I had a good practice, a pleasant home,
and could offer her the pure love of a young heart,
so I was pot without hope, especially as I could see
the flush deepen on her cheek, and a glad light
springing to her blue eyes whenever I was an.
nounced. She was mourning, and I often longed
to question her about the loss It implied, but our
private Interviews were very brief, and bat seldom
oc.currell, and she never Spoke of her sorrow. 1,
too, had a story to tell. Of coarse, it she became
my wife she must hear of Trot.
It was the day before Christmas, and the snow
was smOott and hard round Hopedale; so I ventured
to propose - a sleigh ride ' meaning to open my heart
to tier ' t ag we drove.. She accepted the proposal
readily; and we were soon on our way. Somehow
there fell a long silence between lei; I longing but
daring not to speak, my eyes fixed upon that lovely
face framed In its pretty fur-bound hood, the eyes
looking down, the sweet month set with a sadder
expresaion thani I had ever seen It wear. Sudden
ly she Spoke:
I expect my parents, brothers, and staters here

Now, underatand that this in a great mistake.—
The parent who will toil from early dawn till you
are anieep in the Evening to support you, and who
will watch over you day end night when you are

pleasure to hurt your fin:theta, or to cross your will,

that the parent or teacher, lo one cane out of a thou

can be manly.
Boys, sometimes, perhaps often, get the no , ion
that it is manly for a hay to smoke, or to use toltac
co, beeause men, and respectable men, do it; that
to lase protAne or vulgar or obscene language is
manly ; that to be Irreverent and ltlw In speech is
manly—because men do so at times. A sad mistake,
I assure you. Renal men are allowed in good soci
ety', it la in spite of these things, and not in conse
quence of them. I litre never seen a lather who,
as I thought, really wanted to have his boy learn to
smoke, or to be. vulgar or profane ; and what W(.11114i
you think of a father who, every morning, at family
worship, should pray that his son might learn one
more vulgar expression, learn to use our more In

any' thing for which we may not pray? And what
would your mother say,if in the morning she should
Lind her boy kr eellng down and praying God to h e lp
him to be more profane or to use viler language
than ever before? And yet you know that many
a boy will use language and oaths and vile speeches
during the day, on which be dare not think when he
meets God alone in the dark. snow then, toy boy,
that if you think tint nay thing that la low or vul

Yon will often meet with boys who boast that

moment I please." What would you think of a
boy who should play with 4 mad dog or a rattle
snake, under the belief that he could expel the poi
son of their bite at any moment ? No. Sin la like

not go out at your bidding. Many a boy drinks
this poison through a vile book, a vile picture, or a

Mining can hardly be a pleasant occupation. The
absence or eon end all natural light, the dripping
sides of the shaft, and danger of explosion from the

the swell of the ocean Is dietinetly audible, it moat
suggest many fears to the diligent miners, The fol•
lowing graphic discription is taken from an English

"After listening a few minute* a distant and un

the same discourse from the game preacher. ening
in the evening to Dr. o=good's church, he found the
same clergyman and the same theme: "Simon's
wife`• mother lay itch of a fever." The next day
the patient hearer of the thrice told discourse was
croaatne to Brooklyn In a ferry-boat, when the alarm
bell in the ?ark aaitated the air with ham-cat shocks
of sound, and a man . behind him inquired why that
hell was tolling. Looking up. he saw the now fa

to reply "I think Simon'. wife's mother must be

Re comes I The tardy Winter comes !
I hear his footsteps through the nights !
I hear his vanguard from the heights
March through the pines with roomed drams
His naked feet are on the mead:
The grass blades stiffen In his path,
No tear for child of Earth ho hath I
No pity for her tender seed I
The bare oaks shudder at his breath :
A moment by the stream he stays—
Its melody Is mute 1 A glass
Creeps o'er its dimples, es of death!
From fettered streams and blackened moor,
The city's wails he silent nears :
The mansion of the rich ho fears I
Ho storms the mtbins of the poor
The curtained couch, the glowing hearth,
The frost rimed Graybeard's power defy,
He curses as he hurries by—
And strikes the beggar, dead, to earth!
For every gleaming ball•he ■pares,
A hundred 'mirthless hovels hold
Hearts puiseless, crisp with lee and cold,
Watched by a hundred grim Despairs!
The forest grew by His command
Who wall, ••lle lendeth to the Lord
Who the poor!" Your hoard
Is His I Ye stewards of the land !
Here Is your mission ! Ye who feed
Your lavish fires! Not afar,
Bat at your doors, your Heathens are!
God's poor—your creditors! Take heed I
The path is long to Pagan shores;
Their skies are sunny : - God o'er all !

Around you I Deal your Master's stores I
Come, brothers, come f for our country Is calling;
Peals the loud bngle and rattles the drum;
Loud voice of Freedom, the Saxon appalling;
Shoulder your rifles, and come, brothers, come !
Long have our hearts felt the heel of oppression,
Long have we suffered in sorrow and fears;
Pare love of Erin, our only transgression:
Come, brothers, come I for the daylight appears.
Renee, brothers, rouse ! on the land and the ocean,
Teach the proud Briton our cause cannot fall;

Think how we drove the wild Dane In the sea;

None can he slaves who have sworn to - be free;
Long have we felt bitter anguish and scorning,
Bound down like Samson, deprived of his sight:
Rouse, brothers, rouse ! for the daylight is dawning,
All are aware that our cause Is the right.

Charles Spergeon wee born in Essex, a county of
the east coast, near London, in 1834, and of very
bumble parentage. He was educated at the town
of Colchester—a plug - about as big as Elizabeth
City, on the little river Coln. He became an usher
in a school at New Market, emerging from which pcy.
altion he jolted the church of Rev. Robert Hall, the
famous divine of a lmif a century ago. Spurgeon'e
first essay was made Ina barn at Water Brach, where
he was called the "boy-preacher." The barn wee
finally crowded, and thousands gathered outside to
listen. He did not deteriorate when they gave him
a church ; for he had not only eloquence brit intel
ligence. and finally he was invited up to London in
18.53. From the first he was a great sensation, and
the fame of him extended over the seas. The Met

he has become an "institution" in London, and
those who have heard him most, Fay that he has
grown In strength and zeal, year after year. He is
hated as mach as he Is loved ; but those who love
him have a reason for doing so ; those who hate
him have only a prejudice to excuse them. He is
educating young men for the ministry; has a score

equal to John Wesley as a tneoloateat 15TaWananc,
and to Whitfield as a theological orator.
Such a voice you never heard en the "stump," or,

lines at a time, so that all may sing; and-while the
immense mass of heads rise up to till the place with
thunder, we may study the face andligure of the
preacher. He has that description of clerical phlz
which I might denominate "greasy." His cheeks
and chin are smooth as a bop 's, and very fat and
closely set—or, as some would say, all of a lump.—
over a rather narrow forehead sweeps a quantity of
straight, blackish brown hair, which yanish , s
behind his ears : his month is large, bit nose
Inclined to "snub," and his eyes are jet black

When Mr. Greeley was 'in California ovation's
awaited him at every town. He had written power•
ful leaders in the 214bune in favor of the Facile
Railroad, which had greatly endeared him to the
citizens ofthe Golden State., And therefore they
made much of him when he went to see them.
At one town the enthusimile populace tore his
celebrated white coat to pieces, and carried them
home to remember him by.
The citizens of Placerville prepared to fee the
great Journalist, and an extra coach, with extra re
lays of horses, was chartered of the California Stage
Company to carry him from Folsom tr , F/acervirle--
dlstance, forty miles. The extra was in some way
delayed, and did not leave Folsom until late In the
afternoon. Mr. Greeley was to be there at waren
o'clock that evening by the citizens of Placerville,
end it was altogether necessary that he should. be
there by that hour. 130 the Stage CompaAy. said toy
Henry Moak, the driver of the extra: "Henry, the..
greet man must be there by seven o'clock to-night,"
end Henry answered, "The great man shall be there."
The roads were In en SUM state, and dating the'
first few miles out of Folsom slow progress WS '
"Sir," raid Mr. Greeley, "are you nerve that_.l
must be at Placerville, at. sevezreclock tomighti"
"I've got my orders!" laconically returned Henry
Still the coach dragged slowly forward.
Sir," eald thr great Printer, "%la te not • trifling,
matter. I mutt be there tit seven."
Again came the answer, f'Pyegot my orders."
But the speed was not Increased, and Mr. Greek/
chafed away another half hour ; when, übe WAG
again about to remonstrate with the driver, the,
horses suddenly started Into elusions ran. end AU
sorts of encouraging yells filled' the air Croat the
throat of Henry Monk.
"That is right, my good fellow I," cried Mr. area ,
Icy. "I'll give you ten dollars when we get to Pla
cerville. Now we are goingl"
They were Indeed, and at a terrible speed.
Creek, crack ! went the whip, and again "that
voice" split the air. "Olt up! HI, 341 Glongt

down, at a rate of speed never before acWarcd

Mr. Greeley, who had been bouncing from one

"I've got my orders!". That was all Hoary Hoak
said; and on tore the coach.
It was becoming serious. Already the Journalist
was extremely sore from the terrible jolting and
again his htmd 'might have been seen' at the window.
"air," he said, "I don't care—are—air, if wo don't
get there at seven !"
"I've got my orders." Fresh horses forward

They said, 'Git this man through by seven.' An'
this man's go)n' through. You bet. Gerlongt--
Another frightful jolt, and Mr. Greeley's bald
head suddenly found its way through the roof of the
coach, amidst the crash of the email timbers and ths
ripping of strong canvass.
"Stop yon—maniac I" he roared.
Again answered Henry Monk:
"I've got ma orders: Keep your seat, ironies P'
At Mnd Springs, a village a few miles from Placer
ville, they met a large delegation of the citizens of
Placerville, who bad come out to meet the celebrat

The citizens met the coach In the outaklrta

itself, like a wild apparition above Ale coach roof.
Mr. Monk was on time. Thero Is &tradition that
Mr. Greeley was very indignant for a while; then ha
laughed, and finally presented Mr. Monk with a
bran new -suit of clothes:.
Mr. Monk himself is still In the employ of the
California Stage Company, and is rather fond of re
lating a story that has made him famous all over the
Paeltic coast. But he says he yields to DO man. to
his admiration for Horace Greeley.
