Tuq Merry Days of Youth.
BY G. L. BANKS.
Oh, merry is the sunshine,
And merr is the spring,
And merry is the wild bee,
Forever on the wing . ,
But, ah ! of Natures mirth fulness1;
For perfect joy and truth,
There's nothing half so merry
As the merry days of youth.
There's freedom in thc soul
"When the life is green and young,
There's rapture in the heart, too,
And limbic on the tongue;
At every step the light foot falls
On groupes of thornlcss flowers,
And hope, a fairy, dances,
To beguile the pleasant hours. -
The merry days of youth,
Too soon do they depart,
By worldly care and sorrow chasj&fl
From the impulsive heart;
Yet still will linger in the mind
The seeds-of love and truth,
"Which the spirit saved and gathered
Iu the menry days of youth.

The Lepers in Jerusalem
In my rambles about Jerusalem I pas-
scd on several occasions through the quar-
ter of the Lepers. Apart from the inter-
est attached to this unfortunate class of
beings, (arising from the frequent allusions
made to them in the Scriptures,) there isj
much in their appearce and mode of life
to attract attention and enlist the sympa
thy of the stranger. Dirt and disease go
rcvoltingly together here ; guant famine
stalks through the streets ; a constant
moan of suffering swells upon the air, and
sin broods darkly over the ruin it has
wrought in that gloomy and ill-fated spot.
"Wasted forms sits in the doorways; faces
covered with white scales and sightless
eyes are turned upward; skeleton arms,
j distorted and foetid, with the ravages of
' leprosy, are outstretched from the foul,
moving mass ; and a low howl is heard,
j the howl of the stricken for alms; ho stran-
ger, for the love of God ! alms to feed the
inexorable destroyer! alms to prolong this
dreary and hopeless misery !
Look upon it, stranger, you who walk
; forth in all your pride and strength and
breathe the fresh air of heaven ; you who
have never known what it is to be shuncd
by your fellow man as a thing unclean
and accursed; you who deem yourself un-1
blest with all the blessings that God has
! given you upon earth; look upon it and;
learn that even the Leper, with death '

The DiMc-Bistriimtor among Rob-
During the revolutionary troubles of
the year 1848, a band of robbers had
established themselves in the great man-
ufacturing town of Lyons, in the South of
, France. They were rough fellows, with
jiaces that looked only fit for the gallows,
and hearts as hard as thc street-paving of
the town. To judge from their appearance,
they would think no more of taking away

15ut nothing prospers in tins world
1 without some sort of government, and
these robbers knew it; so they chose one
' of their number for a Captain; and in this
case it was the one most accomplished in
all kinds of robbery and murder. And
, then they raised their hands to Heaven,
jand swore that none of them would ever,eyes glared with rage; involuntarily they
leave or betray the band; and that if any
should, nevertheless, break the oath, the
rest would pursue and kill him. And they
went forth to plunder and murder; and
all the people of the neighborhood who,
besides their heads, had temporal goods
to lose, were full of terror and dismay.
At this time there was assembled in
Lvons another band, which, like these'.
robbers in the forest, sent out their mes-
sengers in every direction, and so haunted
after all sorts of people. And where these
appeared, many a one has trembled. It
