A pious son or daughter, who adorns the
Christian profession, is an inestimable blessing
to a family,- rendering most efficient aid in fhc
right training of ethers, A wicked• son or
daughter is a curse ; and it will be a singular
deliverance if they ruin only themselves.
Besides present usefulness, a speedy •conver
sim will greatly increase their power to be
us2ful in time to couie. Thing good is an art
for wl*.wik w e rie.Od bo trained, as for most
other arts: The earlier children enter into the
service of Christ, the more complete will this
training he ; they will have.-a greater amount of
Christi in knowledge, and a greater experience
of the, truth ; and having been accustomed in
early life to make the glory of God their end,
and his Work their rule, they will not have
formed those sinful habits or conduct, which
even grace itself does not wholly eradicate. .
Conversions fn later life seldom' make as
useful men in Church or Slate. The active
m•m in our several congregations are those as a
general thing, who enter early into the Church•
Early piety also affects much the acquisition of
asdul skill and learning, A Christian, in the
nature of thing;, cannot be a drone. He serves
a master.whem he—loves, and whom he desires
to serve with all his powers. He is therefore
disposed to qualify himself fur such service.—
If, therefore, we desire children to become good
scholars, pod mechanics, good merchants, good
anything, we should desire and aim 'to make
them first good Christians, servants of - Christ ;
for nothing furnishes is more powerful stimulus
to,improveMent, than religion.-13r. Mutton:

g‘ Do you know ; - with any certainty, in what
language Adam declared his love to Eve?", in..
quired- I, one day, from- a - philoluist of my
acquaintance. I put my question with so
much earnestness, that he answered, quite
riously, "Yes, to be sure, he made his declar
ation of love in precisely the same language
no that in which she accepted hint."
A profound answer! The only pity is, that
I was not much wiser for it. But it is alto
gether a pity—a very gi•cat pity—that we
know 'so little about the loco-makings before
the FlOod. — If any - body could meet with n
love-story of that date, it would have more
freshness and novelty in-it than can he found
in.any of our modern novels. And really that
love-making in the morning of time, in the
groves of Paradise, it must have been, quite
out of the common way
Ah, there breathes still in 'this wMild —sea - -
end thousand years old though it be—La gentle
gale of the spring-time of Paradise, through
the life of every men, nt the moment when he
says, "I love! I ant beloved!"
Yes. It thrills through every happy. son of
Adam at the mouient when he finds his Eve.
But Adam himself was, in uno respect;•better—
off than any of Ins sons; for as there was
only one Eve, ,he could Make - no mistake;
neither Qould she, on her side,- -have -either--
choice -or repentance, But_ we_—our name__

one would seriously confess hie••esperience in
this respect; it would no doubt be both ip. '
structiv'e and amusing. And as I khow no
other way in which I can instruct or amuse
•the world, I will now sincerely cunfess what
mistakes I made when I searched for my Eve,
whom I first adored iii he person of hose Er..
I want words to describe liCr. She had
fascinated me when I was but a cadet; she before I had left the fourili class.
And, of a truth, there never (lid exist a young
lady, more dangerous to a youth of liv( im
agination. her coquetry was so natural, so
mixed with goodness and childish grace, that
it N 91113 impossible to regard it ns anything
more- than- the- most- angelic- innocence. At
the Military Academy, I saw in my books her
name and nothing besides. IC I drew plans
of fortifications and fortresses; Rose stood in
the middle of my circles an I quadrants, and
the only Hoe - that I perceived clearly was the
road that led to her home; the verdurous
Greendalo was a cheerful place, where there
were always gnosts nndparticl. And when
the young people-wisiled to bavimin excursion
on the water, or any other entertainment,. I it
was who always planned everything, and pro
posed it to the old baroness, the mbther, for
whom all the children entertained a vorycon
siderable and wholesome respect. On these
occasions she used to say, "My dear sir, if
yoMare with the children, I will permit it;
forl trust to you, and I know that you will
take care'of thesis."
'"Yes, to be sure," I replied, though the
truth was, I could not take care of .myself;
•nnd never took notice of nny body, or of any
thing, excepting Rose.
Many a ono was fascinated just as I was
fascinated ;-bu t-I-pors adelmyself-that -I-was
the only lucky fellow who had her proferenc3.
Once I was terribly jealous. A certain Mr.
T. ( a professoi• of language, I believe) came

was as mhelt under her fascination .no over,
fully convinced that it was 'all my fault, 'hid
that I. Was a Turk,,,a monster—nay,' quite an

After 1 had sighed , and burned a oonsidera,
'Cie time, I made up my mind to proceed to
'the declaration of my love. It'is true I' was
still very young, not three-and-twenty; but I
thought myself quite old enough, being a lieu

_ Ah! in what a noble form did my new ideal
present herself to my eyet',.ns. one evening
tutored the hospitable ealosin of Mrs. A., the
wife of the celebrated -jilt*. -Able, her
daughter, stood ready to oilioiato at the tea
table; her fentuieq, her figure,- her manners
were dignified and full of, propriety. She look

to fantastientbeiVtahini; i(:pso. I.instant
ly.foll in irir,),with th4lienct4lininge of Mi

Able, hOwever, seemed only to think of. the
tea, and looked neither to , th& left nor the
right. When tea was poured into all the cups
she slowly turned her sPlunt,liti, head, and I
beard, 'at the same moment, n bass-voice eL

not rather that of the , gel of Judgmeia,
who, in the middle of- Mr. evening party
summoned the sinner Sundhulm - to hear his fi

rather than such a voice could issue fram the
beautiful lips of Abin. But, when ; I beheld
Sandhi:dui advance to the tea-table and receive
the tea-cups from his tray, I saw that the re
sounding basson-voice belonged to no other
than the sweet _lady whoml had just-adored,
and whom I had, in my hears, already called
"my wife."
It requit"ed some little time before I could
reconcile my mind on this point. "Sund
holm 1" sounded•awfully through my ears for
many a long hour.. I began to reason on the
subject.' If, said I, Nature has bestowed a
bass-voice 'on-this beautiful yonng lady, is it
not noblis'and excellent of her not to try to
conceal or embellish it? Does it not prove
her love of truth ; bet• strength of clutracter,
and her greatness of soul ? How easy it would
have been for her to cry." Sundholm !" in -fal
setto : but she would not be false, oven in
this! Not willing to i assame a disguise, oven
for the sake of winning admiration, she sum
mena Sundholm in the voice which God has
given her. Is there, not something
. grand_ in
all this? One who thus calls out "Sundholm,"
