SAMUEL AND SAUL.
TILE INTERVIEW BETWEEN TILE LIVING
AND THE DEAD.
One evening, just as the sun was setting
over the hills of Palestine, a host was seen
encamped in a beautiful valley, through
which wandered. a clear stream, and over
whose green surface, woods and fields, and
flocks and herds, were scattered in endless
variety and prefuSion. The white touts
dotted the landscape far and wide, standing
against the green back-ground distinct as
a fleet of snowy sails against a storm cloud
on the sea ;
_ while long rows of chariots
glittered between, and gay standards float
ed above, and groups of officers and ranks
of soldiers moved about, giving animation
land life to the scene. At intervals came
triumphant bursts of music; and the thrill
ing strains of the trumpet arose and fell
over the plain, till the echoes were lost in
the woods beyond. And the evening sun
was shining on all this, tipping the tents of
thousands of lance points with silver, and
flashing back from burnished armor, till
the eye became dazzled with the splendor:
On a gentle eminence that overlooked
this glittering plain, was spread the tent of
the king. Of ample dimensions, and dec
orated with gorgeous hangings and costly
ornaments, it looked like a fairy palace
there upon the swelling hill top. Under
neath its spreading canopy sat the monarch
himself, looking thoughtfully upon the
prospect below bite. It was a scene to
stir a warrior's heart, for every one of
those countless tents that stood bathed in
the sunlight, contained soldiers truo and
tried; and all the va3t best at his feet was
but fr single instrument in his hand. At
the blast of his trumpet, that plain would
tremble under the tread of armed men;
twice ten thousand lances shake in the de
parting sunbeams, and, at his command,
rank upon rank would rush all steadily up
on a stand of leveled spears. They had
often crowded after him to battle, had stood
a wall of iron about hie-in the hour of per
il; he had hoard their shouts of defiance
ring over the clash of arms and tumults of
the fray—ay, and their shouts of victory,
too, louder than all as they drove the bro
ken and shattered forces of the enemy be
fore them. Well, then, might the sight of
that tented host send the flush of pride to
the monarch's brow, and fill his heart with
But, alas, no color came to that marble
face; pale and anxious the chieftain sat
and gazed, his brow knit in gloomy thought,
and care resting like a cloud upon his
countenance. No food had passed his lips
all day, yot something more than fasting
had wrought that haggard look and bowed
that regal head. The white tents sprink
ling the field, the chariots beside them, the
shining ranks of warriors, the triumphant
strains of music, the glorious landscape
smiling in the setting sun, the hum of the
mighty host, were all unheeded. He saw
them not, he heard thoin not; hill troubled.
soul was busy amid other scenes, strugx
gling with far other thoughts. Another
army rose before bins—a host of sins, in
ghastly array, in whose dread aspect no
relenting could be seen. And, worse than
all, the oracles of God wore dumb; to his
earnest questioning no response had been
given; the [Trim and Thunnuim ceased to
be irradicated at his call, and silence and
!darkness rested on the ark of God. And
now, as ho thought of his crimes, and the
silence of God, and of the battle on the
" Cowing events cast their shadows before thew,"
and ho saw his army routed and slain, and
himself and his throne trampled under foot.
No wonder the waving banners below him
brought nu glow to his wan and wasted
• 11 , ,
As the light of day disappeared, and the
fires began to be kindled' in the broad en
campment, lie entered his tent; snd, putting
on a disguise, stole forth, and, as a last
resort, turned his steps towards the house
of a sorceress, and asked that Samuel might
be raised from the dad;
Scarcely had his request been made,
when a stately form arose before him, clad
in a dark mantle, his long gray lucks and
heard falling upon his breast and ghoul=
dors. It was Samuel—the same Samuel
who had anointed him king over Israel, and
for so long a time had been the pillar of
his throne; the dread and fearless prophet.
who so often had withstood him to his lave,
and hurled the malediction of Heaven up
on him; whose last curse,
backed with the
startling declaration, "The strength of Is
rael will not lie nor repent," still rang in
his ears. The frightened monarch stood
dumb and powerless before the dread spir
it lie had evoked from the land of shadows,.
when the deep sepulchral tones of the pro
phet broke the silence, "Why hest thou
disquieted me, to bring me up?" "I am
I l sore distressed," murmured the king' "for
the Philistines make war upon me, and
God is departed from use,
me no snore, neither by prophets nor .
dreams; therefore I have called thee, that
thou mayest tell me what I shall do."- 7
"Wherefore," answered the spirit, "dust
thou ask me' seeing the Lord has departed•
from thee and is become chino enemy?"—
Ho would only repeat over again the curse
lof former days; and his words fell like a
funeral knell on the ears of the monarch,
"The Lord bath rent the kingdom out of
thy hand, and given it to thy neighbor
David. Not only has the throne gone, but
the dynasty cloies with thee, and thy fami
ly is disinherited for ever for thy sins.—
Nor is this all: the battle to-morrow shall
go against thee, for "the Lord will deliver
Israel with thee into the hands of the Phil
istines; and"—the prophet's voice here
made the heart of the listener Stand still in
his bosom—" and to-morrow shalt thou
and thy sons be with me." The thunder
bolt had fallen, and the utter silence that
followed was broken only by the shock of
the king's body as he fell lifeless and head
long upon the earth. No shriek, no groan,
told when and how deep the blow struck;
that heavy fall was utOko' startling than
'llse fearfulapparition sunk away, and
Saul was left alone with the night:
The nest morning found the king in his
tent, nerved for the worst, and to those
who saw him, as his servants buckled otr'
his armour, he appeared the same as ever;
save that a deeper pallor was on his cheek
than thought can ever give—the pallor of
despair. Nevertheless the trumpets were
ordered to sound, and soon the plain slat*
with the preparation of arms. Chieftains,
each with Lis retainers behind him, march
ed forth, prancing steeds and chariots of
war followed, banners and lances and hel
mets fluttered and flashed in. the morning
sunlight, and all was hope and confidence
inr thO army. As the troops defiled be
fore the royal tent, shouts of "long live
the king," rented the air, Alt, with what
a sudden death chill those shouts fell upon
his heart; that host was going forth to be
slaughtered, and that bright sun in its
course was to witness the loss of his army,
his throne, his sons and his life. Perhaps
he cheered his desponding spirit with the
vain hope that God might'yet be appeased,
or that Samuel had spoken falsely; at all
events, he was determined to battle nobly
for his crown. As his guard closed stern
ly around him, the determination written
on his brow betokened a bloody dayiand
fierce struggle, even with fateitself.
The hostile armies met, and, rank after
rank, troop after troop, rushed to the on
set. The Hebrew sword drank blood; and
the shout of Israel went up as thrilling
and strong as ever it rose from Mount Zi
on itself. Arid never before did their mon- ,
arch lead them so steadily and fiercely on
—or give his royal person so freely to .
the foe. But courage, and heroism, and
desperate daring were alike unavailing;
the sentence was writ on high, and Israel•
was scattered before her foes. Vainly
did their leaders rally thou' again and
again to the charge. V aiuly did the
three princes, the sons of Saul, call on
their followers to emulate their example,
as they throw themselves on the foe.—
Vainly did the king himself lead on his
troops, while the blood from his wounded
side trickled over hbm armour. God was
against them all, and discomforted and
scattered they fled on every side. The
three sons of the king fell one after an
other, bravely battling for their father's
throne and Israel's honor, till at last Jou
athan, the noblest and bravest of them
all, fell lifeless ou the hill side. The
wounded monarch, hard hit by the arch
ors, at last turned and fled for his life; but ? !
finding no way to escape, he stopped and
commanded his armor-bearer to stab him
to the heart, "Lest," said the dying man,

through, and abusu Lun." llis armour-bear

good anecdote of an Irishman gibing the
pass-word at the battle of Fontenay, at
thd time the great Saxe was marshal.

makes things “wuss."
