its ibree upon him was now diminished by I
his own motion, as it was before increased. ,
This created en impression upon l.is mind
that the storm was abating. At any rule
he went on more easily, and 'accordingly
ventured on the pond with less misgiving.
But the now was deeper, and fulling fast,
and it was rot long before he lost sijjht of

every moment to see that his course was

half mile, whin he thought he hctild be
approaching the shore. At last he stopped
suddenly at a lare dark (-pot dimly visible

before hi:n it was aftrruAti of. Oh
those breathing holes bow many breaths

that the whole surface is covered with the
glassy ice but as thn winter advances,

of deadly airs and gasses were con'inually
passing to and fro.
Fergus fell back a tep cr with
his eyes fin-d upon the openirir bvtore him.
The water looked dark and fit-, p, "nd little

On opening hia nude r-box he found he had

lighted the paper ; but in attempting to

Fergus hastened to push these together
again, but all hia efforts on'y hastened the
extinguishment of the fire.
He gazed on the blackened branches a
niir.u e or two, and then said to himself,
"Only one match more. Now 1 must
be careful." So he began to look all around
him, to do what in fact he ought to have
done at first, that is procure a supply ol
birch bark that universal foster father of

sheltering it wilh his great coat until l
was; well on fire. Then he transferred
me blazing piece after another to his pile

Fergus came up with the traveler to the
sleigh, and found there was a lady sitting
in it. The man spoke to her and told her
there was a fire a short distance off the
road, and that she must try to walk to it ;
but she was drowsy and stupid, mid did not

child which she had been carrying, and
then told her to walk along immrdiaieiy

The lady's strength and spirits revived
by the exfr-ite, and 111 a short time they
were all comforiaLly established by the tire.
They collected more wood. and spread down
a large nuti.ber of hen.lo.-k branches, and

packing away all the loose flying (lakes

drifts, so that Fergus found to his surprise
that the snow would bear his weight in
many places where it had drilled bard.
Seen by daylight, Ion, he recogmztd the
place where they were. It was not very
tar from his iathei's house, and only quite
rhort distance from another farm house
on his way. It was agreed, therelore.thai
he should go in pursuit ol help, as he could
get along so much more easily upon the

were just shoveling paths to the jircnt barn,

prinUty oUeivrd throughout the In ion, (and wv
suppose of course in Lwil'urg) by rreeation
from unuressMry business, social cuieiings, and
julilic worship of the Author of every blessing.
In this connection, we copy some very pertinent
reflections from the Philsd. Christian Chronicle:
The observance of such a sacred
festival, at this season of the year, has
long been customary, esrially through
out Xew England, and we re;oice at the
pros;ei-l of its univeisality throughout Ibe
whole country, and at no distant period.

It was Ihe custom of our forefathers nt
the early eettlemeir. of t ur couniiy. In
fuel, a this new world was lirst discovered,
when Columbus with bis crew fir.-t caught
a glance of ibe land, ajsj-asnn ol praise
and thanksuivitig was aWnce set apart in
order to ack now ledge God in guiding across
the ocean, bringing to a suie harbor, and
putting in possession of an unknown con
tinent. Our Puritan fnhers.as they land
ed in the Mayflower on Plymouth Rock,
made the air resound wilh songs of grati
tude, and ever alter at this season of the
year through all their generations. Thro'
the Keviilutinimry struggle which followed,
at every deliverance from danger, and
every victory that was won. how did then
hearts swell with thanksgiving and their
tongues loo in giving it utterance.
The season ol the year also is appropri
ate to such a day. U'e have sown the
seed, and cuitivnted the soil, and God has
attended our labors whh sunshine and rain,
nil at length fruit and harvest have been
gathered in rich profusion for the abundant
supply of all our wants. He has watched
over the commerce of the sea, and scat
tered everywhere the products of all climes
and of all lands.
Besides, we, as a people, have been pe
culiarly blessed the past year. Then how
reasonable that we should any so in word
too plain to be mis'aken, and by acls which
shall be proclaimed to the wide world!
Lvery cloud or war, which has stood over
us at other times, has been cleared away,
and the bright sunshine of peace has rested
upon this whole nation.
Koine, striving for liberty, bns been
crushed ; Hungary, contending for the
same blessing, has been cut off by the
sword, and banished in exile. Turkey,
for opening au asylum to tfio.e under the
sentence of death l y a lion hearted auto
cr.it. :s now trembling before the cup of
vrrath ho yet presses to her lips. All I'.u-
rope is in romwuuoi. in .r-w u. ...c t-icm,
and threatens to Ucome speedily one great
battle-field. Vol sinid it all, we. as a na
tion, are calm as the bosom of a surnmei's
lake, and have nothing 10 do but to still
pour ahrr.a 1 tbe li-ht of our liberty.
Let us thank (Jod that we are at peace
wiih all the nations of the globe, and that
wo may met and express our deepest
L'ratiludw with uone to interrupt our joyful
And besides all this, how rich and nl-
rious ate our religious privile.es. The
Bible and the sanctuary are outs, the fam
ily altar and the throne of grace we may
approach daily and offer there grateful in
cense to God.
Institutions of sanctified learning meet
our eye on every hand, and bless the land
with their pure radiance.
Art and science of every name, as ihe
iJiarrdmaids of religion,', am making their
discoveries, and elevating the condition of
ibis mighty nation.
An intelligent and faithful ministry are
rising up to bless our churches, and as on
angels' wings are sending the Gospel to
heathen shores to proclaim the glad news
of salvation to all people.
Living amid scenes like these, as the day
of thanksgiving and praise comes round,
let u. not ail to set it apart in a becoming

all nur mercies.
Let us nraise Oud in the family circle

The Acknowledged BLcktcoud of Anttra.
An impartial press has awarded lo Sar
fain tbe credit of publishing the best Msg
az;ne in America. Their decision is found
ed upon tbe established fact, thjt he pub
lishes letter and more varied embellish
ments than any of bis rivals, and that he
pa for one'iuil contributions more than
nli bis competitors combined, and hence he
bas secured authors of the highest repute
in America and Europe.

The publishers of artiin's Magazine,
would aiitiounce o) Ilie reading public,
that whilst ih.ir Manazine for lb49 is ac
knowledged to be superior in every respect
to any o:h r pulvist.cd in this country,
they have mstie arrangements whereby
the Magazine for the i.ez! year wilt escel
all its former isiu"S.
The Literary Depariment will remain
umier th.- control ot its present able Editors,
Prof. John S. Hart, of Philade'phia. and
Mrs. Caroline M. Kihklsnd, of N. York,
who, besides articles from their own pens
every month, have secured contributions
from the best Authors in Europe and
These contributions, including some r.f
the most brilliant Magazine articles any
whereto be found, are entirely original,
being written expressly for our Magazine,
and not selected from other publications.
If we can not attract distinguished names
to our list of contributors by the liberality
of our prices, or the respectability of nur
Magazine, we assuredly shall not try to
gain the appearance of it, by taking ex
tracts from authors of great name, and so
mixing them up in our table of contents,
lh it they shall seem to be original.

entire control ol the Pictorial Department,
