In a rustic Old church opposite,
we write, a company of worshiPperi are
singl i ng t he old; old hymn:
'Bel thou, 0 God, exulted high!"
The air as old, also—the immortal .01$1
If i.t be true that Luther cotnpmed that
tuue4 and if the worship of mortals fa car
ried On the wings of angels to heaven', bow
often he heard the declaration, "They are
singing .Old Hundred' now." '
The solemn strain carries us bank to the
time of the Reformers—luthur and his
devoted band.: He doubtless, ,was the
first to strike the grand old chords in the
public sanctuary , of his own Ilermani.
FroM his own stentorian lungs they rolled,
vibrating, not through vaulted cathedral
roof; but along a grander arch, the eternal
headers: He wrought into each note his
own' sublime faith, and stamped it with
that 'faith's immortality. Hence, it can-I
not die ! Neither "man nor angeli will I
let it pass into oblivion. .
Can you find a tomb in the land wberel
sealed lips lay that: have not sung that
tune ? If they were gray old nien, they
had (heard or sung "Old Hundred." If
they, were babes, they. smiled as, their
mothers rocked them to sleep, singing
"Old Hundred." Sinner and saint ha% e
joined with the endless congregation
wiiere it has, with and without !the peal
ing 'organ, sounded on sacred air. The
dear little children, looking with wonder
ing I eyes on this strange world, have
The sweet young girl whose tombstone
told of sixteen summers, she whose pure
aud' , innoent face has haunted yo,,:k
its mild beauty, loved "Old Hundred,"
and as she sung it, closed her ,eyes and
seemed communing with the angels who
were so soon to claim her. He whose
manhood was devoted to the Service of I
his God, and who with faltering steps as-1
cended the pulpit stairs with white hand
placed over his laboring breast, loved
"Old Hundred." And though sometimes
his lips only moved, away doWn in his
heart, so soon to cease its throbs, the holy
tuel'udy was sounding. The dear; white
headed father, with his tremuleni voice,
how he loved "Old Hundred." Do you
see' him now, , sitting in the venerable
arm-chair, his arms, crossed over the top
of his cane, his silvery locks floating off
from his hollow teuiples, and al tear, per
chance, stealing down his furroWed cheek,
as, the noble strains ring out ?I Do you
hear that thin, quiVering, faltering sound
now bursting forth,, now listened for al
most in vain ?' If you do not, we do;
and from such lipi,lbailowed by fourscore
years' service in the 3.laster's cause,,"Old
Hubdred" sounds indeed a sacred melody.
-fill your churches with choirs,
with Sabbath prima donnas, whose daring
notes emulate the Steeple, and nest almost
as Much, but give us the spirit-stirring
tones of the Lutheran hymn; sung by
young and old , tegether. Martyrs have
hallowed it; it has gone, up frcim the dy
ing 'beds of the saints. The old churches,
where generation after generation has
I worshipped, and where many scores of the
dear dead have been carried and laid be
fore the altar where they gave.themselves
I.to qod,seem to breathe of,"Old Hundred"
from vestibule to tower-top—the very air
is haunted with its spirit.
Think, fora moment, of the assembled
company who have at different 'times, and
in different places, joined in the familiar
tun i c.? Throng upon throng ',the stern,
the timid; the geutle,ihe braVe, the beau
tiful, their rapt faces all beaming with the
inspiration of the heavenly sounds.

Death lot Gen. Win. It. helm.
aftRaiSBURGI, MAY .10, 1862.
Gen. Wm. H. Keim died; of typhoid
fever on Sunday last. His remains will
be sent to Reading to-morrow to be in.:
terred there. They will be accompanied
by the heads of the military and civil del
partineots. Gen. Heim has always occu
pied a prominent position in the - Govero ,
meat of Pennsylvania, and the experience
which he thus acquired, added to his
marked abilities, qualified him to fill any
position in the, councils of the State with
credit to himself and to the , satisfaction
of his constituents. Gen. Keim was a
native of the city of Reading. For many
years be commanded the Fifth Division
of Pennsylvania Volunteers, and held the
rank of Major General. From his en
trance into public life he took an evident
interest the internal improvements of
Pennsylvania, and' from one position to
another advanced to the position of Stir,
veyor General, having keen elected to
that office by the Republican party. Upon
the breaking out - of the rebellion, feeling
that he could be of more service to his ,
country ia the field than in the council
chamber,' he tendered his services to Gov.
Curtin. 1 They were accepted. Two
Major Generals were accepted from this
State-4en. Patterson and Gen. Kelm.
He was immediately ordered to duty on
the Upper Potomac, and bad command
of one oflGen. Patterson's divisions dur
ing the General's campaign. By his ac
tive and INA condnet in- Maryland be
overawed the Secessionists of that State.
The three months'campaign havingended,
he was mustered out of service, simulta
neously with Gen. Patterson. •He at
once resumed the duties of his office,
which had been entrusted pro tem. to one
of his subordinates. Several months ago
he again entered the service of his coun
try. as Brigadier General, and joined Gen.
McClellan's army, having previously re
signed his State position. Having been
attacked with typhoid fever, he was com
pelled to return to Harrisburg for med
ical. treatment. He arrived in.that city
only a few days since, and on Sunday last
his friends were startled with the an
nouncement of his death.
WIliT GOOD Luca Is.—Some young
men talk about luck. Good luck is to
get up at siz o'clock in the morning.—
Good luck is, if you have only one shil
ling a week, live upon eleven pence, and
save a penny—good luck is to trouble
your head with your own business, and
let youi neighbor's alone—good luck is
to fulfill the commandment and do unto
other people as we would have them do
unto us. They must not only work, but
wait. They must plod and persevere.
Pence must be taken care of, for they are
the seeds of guineas. To get on in this
world, they must take care of home, sweep
their own doorways clean,' try and help
other people, avoid temptations, and have I
faith n, truth and God. Then good luck
will come to them.

The statement is now made by author
ity, that the visit of M. Mercier, the
French Minister to Richmond, was made
without instructions from his Govern
ment, or its knowledge, but in conse
quence of a conversation with Secretary
Seward, in which the latter expressed a
willingness that the other 'should visit
the rebel Capitol and judge for himself of
the hopelessness of the rebel cause; The
President . also approved_of his going. He
held no official intercourse with any one
at Richmond, and his whole course was
most discreet and friendly towards our
Government. • 1
