Prepare for a Reverse.
A man knows not hovii`soon he 'may be

him among the poor. How many at this
moment, are languishing in all the horrors
of the most abject destitution, who were
once rich in : this world's 'goods, and. in
whose lips dwelt in perpetual sweetness the
self-deluding promise--"To-inorrow shall be

lies one who made gold his - idol. He forgot
the nee[ly distress, and the appeals of the
poor atioke no echo in his breast. He was
not his brothers' keeper; so lie hoarded up
hiS surplus lucre in his coflersi , and permit
ted the dying and the destitute to meet their

even so has it. : beeni 'fleeted unto him. Not

his prison Walls. Lett alone with the phan

While we were in hand with these four

“ El Dorado.'
The New York Day Book gives the fold
lowing as the origin of this term:—
~ The early Spanish explorers of South
America brought back, among other wonder
'fu I tales, a story of a country in the mteriot
of Guinea, where gold was mid to be so
plenty that the only dress of the king was a
thick layer of - the precious metal;—a real
'body coat'—'skin- tight,' put on- without
measuring, or c utti ng, or stitching—but thus i
His majesty's naked carcass was carefully
smeared, every morning, with an unctuous
substance, and was then heavily poWdered
with gold dust until no more would stick to
it ; and he was then in full dress, making
a very brilliant and dazzling 'appearance
when the sun shone upon the sparkling sur
face. This (as the story goes) was all scrap::
ed off every night, and thrown away as''old
cloths,' not being valued there there Was
so much gold that was'nt at all greasy. This
distinguished personage and 'eminently shin%
ing character' was properly called by the
Spaniards 'The Gilded One,' which is, in
the Spanish landuage, 'EI Dorado.' (El,
'he,' Dorado, 'gilded' or 'gilt.') • And the
fabulous country was known in Europe as
the land of the 'gilded one,' and was so much
talked of and believed in by the English;
that the sage Sir Walter Raleigh once fitted
out an expedition to go to it; but of hap.:
p . ening to find it,concealed himself piracy
riand robbery on the Spaniarde r fo hick he
was beheaded many years afterwards, and
very unjustly by the king who commissioned
him to do it
Perhapafriendship is the most sensative
of all affections; the first doubt—the - fiat
neglect--the first seeking of another for that
sympathy which we thought it our owa spe
cial privilege to give—these are moments
which burn their traces cm •the heart, and
leave a scar, which though it may possess
the dubious advantage of callousness to fu
ture impressions, inflicts agony ere its hard
ness. And to such wounds •friendship is
especi liable. Love confers an equality;
wheth •r r al or imaginary ; there is a bal
ance of mg, 'ts vary essence is reciptco
sated.. But !nen hips are fer the most part
Ones . 1, existing etween• persons whose
clitivi ers ate dis liar; either fundamen
tally or in the aspect they present to each
other. The keen tenderness, the watchflil
reverence, the fear, the passion; are not
equally divided, and much must he suffer
in whom they predomi te ; much must he
forbear, long must he persevere, ere the
bond of full and pe4ec confidence is final•
ly established. But if ere be indeed that
bidden basis of sympathy, ' nt Which no
true, friendship is concejveable, it is well
worth the struggle ; for the reward shall
overpay the labor.—Forbearance, trustfal
ness, hopeon these three pillars may the
temple be reared-I;dd if one of these fail;
especially if the second fail, there will be
nothing but a shapeless ruin ! '
My idea of the true method of moral in
