During a voyage . a few years since, I
-was conversing with the mato of a .vessel
when he concerted in the; view presented,
and observed that it called to mind one
of the most thrilling scenes he Lad over
beheld. With this he related the follor-,
in-glory : " ''
"I was at sea oa the broad ,Atlantis as
we now are. It was just such a bright
moonlight night as this, and the sea was
quite as rough. The captain had turned i
id,- and I was upon watch, when suddenly
there was a cry of "a man overboard."—
To go out in rs heat was exceedingly (1 1 111.1

generous fellows came forward, and in a!
moment a boat,was lowered, and wo were
tossed upon'a most frightful sea.
As we rose upon a mountain wave, we
discovered the man upon a distant billow.
We heard his cry, lied responded—" Co
ming." As we descended into the trough
of the sea, we lost sight of this man and
heard nothing but the roar of the ocean.—
As we rose on the wave. =again sew him,
and distinctly heard his call. We goo;

pens to imagination a world of spiritual the deepest gratitude, and when we reach
beauty and holiness.. ' ed the port, he loaded us with presents."
But. my friend, Christ has seen yen ex-

an infinitely.tr sacrifice for -your res

of eternal death. Hesdidnot merely ven
ture jute extreme, danger to save you; he
has actually suiTerid the most cruel death.
Yet you have never embraced his feet, nor
given any proper testimony of gratitude.
What estimate ought you to place on your 1
depravity, when such goodness has for so 1
long a time failed to subdue it ?—Chris-
is bitty, with' his . chain,
elusping'the blushing briar raw.
That woke avape in vain.

Are dancing down the shadowy lane

To kiss her forehead fair,
And crown her wavy hirir;
Though Spring may call you forth a g ain.
rho lovely maiden there,
Once only on her blushing chock
That May-day tint alkali wbar.
The edifor of the AlbaOy Register com
ments thus upon this simple word, se collo
'non and yet so of solemn and tender
mooning :—"11ow many emotions cluster
around that word ! How •full of sadness,
and to us, how full of sorrow it sounds !
It is with us it consecrated weld. We
heard it once within the year as we hope
never to bear it again. It was in the
chamber 'of death, at the still War of

dows were all closed, the lights were all
shaded, and we stood in the dim and sol

Led of the dying. The damps of death
were on her pale young brow, and
coldness was ou her lips, as we kissed her
the lagt time while living. "Good-bye,
my du lighter," we whispered, and "Good-
father," came faintly from her dying
lips. We know not if she ever spoke more, '
but "good.bye" was the last we over heard
of her sweet voice. We hear that sorrow
ful %void often and often, as we sit alone,
busy with'the memories of the past.
TRUISIIIB.-13nrrowed garments seldom
fit well. Haste often trips up his own
heels. Men often blush to hear what they
are not ashamed to net. Pride is a flower
that grows in the devil's garden. More
men are drowned in the wine cups thou in

enjoys them not, is like'annsa that curries

No one ever did, ever can, or ever will
love an habitual (miter, fault finder or

ILE DUTTER TREK.--7110Dera is a tree
in Africa called the ghee tree ' from which
butter of a most excellent kind is obtained.
It is found near Kaaba, on the banks of the
Niger. These trees grow in great numbers
all over that part of Bambara. They are
not planted by the natives, but are found
growing naturally in the woods ; and, in
clearing woodland for cultivation, every
tree is cut down but the shea. The tree
itself very much resembles the American
oak, and the kernel in
: water, has some
what the appearance of a spanish olive.—.
The kernel is enveloped in a sweet pulp,
under a thin green rind, and the butter
produced from it, besides the_ advantage of
its keeping the whole year without salt, is
whiter, firmer, and of a richer flavor than
the best butter ever made from cow's
milk. The growth and preparation of

black snake is, with rare exceptions, the

and is in constant activity—eater/01y ox

envelopes the rattle snake in its folds.—
The struggle, thhugh not long, is painful ;
