We extract from it below, some of the inter

Tlie Great filiation.
A theme that can never be exhausted.
I Salvi.lion or deliverance implies danger. A
great salvation implies danger. There is
no danger, where there is no bin ; no great
danger, where there is no great sin. '1 lie
name of Jesus is so called.because he came
to save his people from that dangerous
See how Paul speaks of the"so great sal
vatio.i." Inspiration itself seems to leave
tlto mind to conceive ns it can of this great
ness. '-Cod so loved the world." Uu, the
depth of this thought! Salvation is a mighty
Ian -a stupendous enterprise, to the ex
ecution of which Omnipotence aloua is
equal. Its subject is the soil.
The object of this salvation is a great
i ne-to glorify GoJ. Ho hath said "A
trulv as 1 live, all the arth shall be lilie-u
with the glory of ihe Lord." But there is
no glory that can (ill the earth like that ol
redemption. This is the great work ot
God. Heaven will be full of the glory of
the great salvation. Eternity, through Us
revolving ages, will proclaim the greatness
and ihe glory.

' 'Nothing to no but to Die." So said an
aged servant of the Lord, recently deceased,
when, after a long life of labor and uelulnesn, he
was su.ldi.uly taken ill, and saw that his hour had
atloiiiilh come. "I have been spared long, 1
have tiied to honor my Master; but 'tis over
now; my work is done, and I have nothing
lo do but to die." What a glorious, whit a In
umpbai.t declaration, with which to welcome
death! work done with men ; peace mudii with

Want or Time Whin a man says he h.'S not
lima for a thing, ho means thai he (Iocs not choose
to devote lhat portion ol time lo it which is ne
cessary, if it is lo be done at til ; in other w ords,
he preteis to give the same portion of time to
something else. Mr. Law observes, iu his "Se
rious Call," that -'the greatest of all wants is the
want of ii.teoliou."
Pleasures of lite Mind.
Ther is no principle of the mind which
is not capable of creating pleasures lor it
telf and others : while, on the oilier hand,
there is none, whatever the excellence of
its nature, by being ill-directed may not
prove the source of individual and general
suffering. The thirst after knowledge, lhat
undying desire of the mind, which, as it
imbibes, grows less stated, is the spring of
all that is delightful in fancy or contempla
tion. Science opens to man those bound

bound in matchless beauty and endless va
riety. It offers the magic wand by w hich
we cull create a celcaiial fountain on u bine
rock, the waters of which purify the soul
and raise the thoughts to a diviner sphere ;
hut knowledge also possesses its evils; it
is often attended with craving anxiety, and
ends in bitter disappointments. Perhaps
after years of toil, we find ourselves in a
wilderness of doubt; or after fruitless at
tempts to grasp some mighty object, we
find that it still rebounds from our touch.

The Tranced Child o llanzor.
We were once coming over the railroad
f.'Otn Washington City to Baltimore, when
we observed a peculiar sort of a man sit
tinir hard by a tall, slim, go d tiatured
fellow, but one who somehow seemed to
bear the impression of a person who lived
by his wits, written upon his face. A
friend, who was with me, answered my in
quiry as to how he was, and at the same
lime asked nic to keep between the object
of my notice and himself, h'st he should
come over to our seat, as my companion
said that he know him, but did not wibhto
recognize him here.
..That is Beau 11 ," said he, "a man
that is universally known in Washington
as one of the most accomplished fellows iij
the city always ready lo borrow oi, or
drink with you. He never has any mo
ney, however, and I am curious to know
how he will get over the road without pay
ing, for he'll do it some way."
"Probnbly he has got a ticket borrow
ed the money to buy it with, or something
of that sort," said 1.
N ot he. Beau always travels free, and
boards in the same way. He never pays
money when wit or trick will pass current
in its place," said my friend, confident
ly. 'What a shocking bad hat he has got on,"
said I, observing the dilapidated condition
of his beaver.
'It is some trick of his, for the rest of
his dress, you observe, is quite genteel."
"Yes, I see."
My friend went on to tell me how Bean
haffchme his tailor out of a receipt in full of
hhf'last year's bill, and the landlady at his
last boarding place, and also various other
specimens of his ingenuity and wit.
"lie owed me ten dollars," said my
friend, "but in attempting to collect it of him
one day, I'll be hanged if he did'nt get ten
more out of me ; so I think I shall let the
mailer rest there, f,r fear of doubling the
sum once more."
At this moment ihe conductor entered
the opposite end of the cars to gather the
tickets from ihe passengers, and give them
checks in return. Many of them asisol-
ten the practice with travellers, who arc
frequently called upon on populous routes
to thawtlntr tickets, nap piaceu ineirs m
lands ol their hats', so that the condtic-

' U, your ticket was in the hat-band,
suggested the conductor.
Suppose you stop the train, and go
back and see,' said the hattless Beau, with
indignant scorn depicted on his face."
Well, sir, I (-hall pass you free over
the road, then,' replied ilie conductor, at
tempting to fro on with his duty.
The price ol a ticket, said Beau, i
one dollar, my beaver cost me a V. Your

is a bi.hmce of fjur dollas in my favor, at

head out of the car window.and seemed ab
sorbed in contemplating the scenery on that
side of the road. The conductor spoke lo
him for his ticketthere was no answer.
"Ticket sir," said the conductor, tapping
him lightly on the shoulder.
Beau sprang back into the car, knocking
his hat into the road, and leaving it in one
minute nearly a mile behind, lie looked
first inwards the conductor, then out of the
window after his hat, and in a seeming fit
of rage exclaimed,
What the d -1 do you strike a man in
that way for ? Is that your business ? Is
lhat what the company hires you for ?"
1 1 beg your pardon, sir, 1 only want your
ticket,' replied the conductor, meekly
Ticket," O, yes, it's all very well for
you to want my ticket, but I want my
hat? replied Beau, bristling up.
' Very sorry, sir, realy. I barely desi

only means in my power,' said the con
ductor. ' You had better use a cane lo attract a
person's attention next time, and hit him
over the head with it if he happens to be a
looking the other way !' replied the indig

a ferocious countenance, exclaimed ;
'Who struck ir.y brother Bob?'
No one answered, for all v.e.e too bu

'Who struck my brother Bob?' contin
ued Pete, waxing bolder, as lie saw no no
tice was taken of his first question.
'Who struck my brother Bob ?' he cried
the third time, working himself into a per
fect fury and stalking about the piazza of
