Beneath the morning sun.
A touch of golden glory

Was like the lily fair!
And 0, she sang a holy song,
Which togas only know
To sound to their adoring throng,
And nerei learnt below!

About her life on earth,

The village of Bethlehem contains from
twelve to fifteen hundred souls—eouls
these people have—and the Christian tra
veler enters its street-ibis mostly built
on one long titreet;--with painful reflections
as he thinks of oeiog in the city of Davi'
and the native place of the Bon of God,
while the people aro wholly given to idol
atry, or sunk in superstition so gross and
sensual as 'to mike their views of the way
of life by Jesus . Christ, as dark and dan
gerous, as if the light of the Gospel had ne
ver broken in for a single moment on
their minds. A few years ago there were
sever"( families here who followed the
false prophet Mohammed, but so frequent
an fierce became the difficulties between
them and the others who bore the name
of Christian, that the Pasha took a very
munmary mode of settling tho disputes—
he drove all the Mohammedans out of the
plum, and tore down their houses. If

ef.iiiiiposing of a troublesome subject, and
it shows to what a depth of aubjeotion' the
