One by One.
One by one the sands are flowing
One by one the moments fall ;
Some are coming, some are going,
Do not strive to grasp them all.
One by one thy duties wait thee,
Let thy whole strength go to each ;
Let no future dreams elate thee,
Learn thou first what these can teach.
One by one (bright gifts from heaven)
Joys are sent thee here below ;
Take them readily when given,
Ready too to let them go.
One by one thy griefs shall meet thee,
Do not fear an armed band,
One will fade as others greet thee,
Shadows passing through the land.
Do not look at life's long sorrow,
See bow small each moment's pain;
God will help thee for to-morrow,.
Every day begin again.
Every hour that fiesta so slowly,
Has its task to do or bear;
Luminous the crowd and holy,
If thou set each gem with care
Do not linger with regretting,
Or for passing hours despond;
Nor the daily toil forgetting,
Look too eagerly beyond.
Hours are golden links, God's token,
Reaching heaven but one by one;
Take them, lest the chain be broken
.Bro-the pi/grlmage be done.
The Waldensian Church—Speech of )1 5
Pilatte, at Belfast.
In the interior of our Church we may re
mark the developement of Christian life
and a progress of that revival of true relig
ion, of love, and faith, and active devoted
ness, which began some twenty-five or thirty
years ago. We all know—alas ! you have
known it by experience, perhaps—that
churches sometimes become cold, and slum
ber, and lose their first love, and indeed
almost all love, for a time. And so it was
with the Waldensiau Church. A death
like cold had spread over it, but thank God
the Spirit has been spread abroad among
our people ; a revival has taken place, and
we do not witness, when we look on our
long-honored Church, the symptoms of
death, but an upward progress. Every day
some new symptom of life appears. The
Confession of Faith of our fathers, which
had been a dead document, and which was
by many repudiated, is now acknowledged,
and was twice, in a very few years, solemnly
proclaimed as the expression of the faith of
our Church. Our Church had no constitu
tion except that which had been transmit
ted traditionally through centuries, and
which was expressed in numberless acts of
Synods. Two years ago the laws of the con
stitution were gathered up, and codified,
and now we have our clearly written, and
well understood, and universally accepted
Presbyterian constitution. (Applause.) Our
discipline—the ancient discipline of our
fathers—had fallen into disuse; for there is
no hope of a faithful discipline in a Church
where there is no truelife—a mere legalism
—a mere formalism—in the things which
pertain to the proper action of the Church--
where dead orthodoxy has taken the place of
living faith, properly expressed. And as
this has been the case with us, so now our
Church has been re-constituting its disci
pline; and there is a standing committee to
gather up the principles of that discipline,
to modify what is, in their impression, inap
propriate to the present time, and to present
to the next Synod of our Church a code of
regulations. There was, for the education
of the ministry, great need fora school of
theology. The time had come when we
should not only prepare a ministry for our
Church, but a ministry for evangelisation
in Italy. As long as the ministry was only
necessary for our own Church we could
easily educate our ministers abroad; but
now they must be educated in Italy, and
there must be an Italian school of theology.
And allow me here, when I mention the
establishment of a school of theology in La
Tour for the education of the Waldensian
and Italian ministers, to pay also a just
tribute of gratitude to the excellent and ad
mirable school of theology, so nobly repre
sented here to-night by one of its profes
sors, M. La Harpe. (Hear, and applause.)
In many years have many of our students
been educated under such a man ; and not
only have they given us able ministers,
faithful pastors, learned Divines, but they
have given us one of our new professors of
theology, so that they may rejoice, though
some pupils may be taken away from their
school, that they have been the means of
sowing the seeds of another school of the
ology. (Applause.)
I can not enter fully into the details
of all that is taking place in the narrow,
but very busy, circle of our fifteen parish
es, and in the midst of our Waldensian
population of from 22,000 to 23,000 souls.
But allow me to mention one fact of a very
gratifying nature—that is, the universal
spirit of instruction in the Valleys. In a
population of 22,000 or 23,000 inhabitants,
we have 167 schools, which are attended
by. 4,000 and odd pupils, nearly one-fourth
part of the Waldensian population.' (Ap
plause.) And besides these parish schools
for boys and girls, and these district schools,
which are kept mainly during five or six
Winter months, we have also superior
schools—a college, -where some eighty or
ninety children of the Valleys receive a com
plete course of clinical education, and are
fitted for the theological department—a
normal school for preparing school-masters,
and a higher school, which serves the pur
pose of educating the young ladies of the
better classes of our people, and preparing
school-mistresses for the g‘ girls' schools.
This is the system of education complete
from the A B C to the school of theology,
which our young people can follow; and as
you observe by the numbers I have men
tioned, they gladly avail themselves of
these opportunities of receiving instruction.
And in this there is hope; for these people
must in due time furnish the missionaries
to be employed in the mission-field of Italy.
Besides this, allow me, in passing, to men
tion a fact which will be interesting to sev
eral. You are perhaps aware that, in the
Valleys hitherto, the French language has
been spoken; and perhaps many might be
surprised to hear that in Italy, among the
Waldensians, whom we are in the habit of
considering as Italians, the French, and not
the Italian language is spoken ; but those
who are so surprised must know that it is
owing to an accident that the French lan
guage has taken among us the place of the
An Italian dialect was primitively, and
until the year 1630, the language of the
Waldensians. At that time a pestilence
swept away all their ministers but two or
three. No more ministers were to be had
to minister to the people, and we sent to
Geneva; and we obtained from that city
ministers, who could preach, not in Italian,
but in French; and when they came into
the Valleys, as there was a degree of resem
blance between the two languages, the people
understood partly what their preachers told
them in French, and they preferred to have
a ministry in French, which they partly un
derstood, rather than have no ministry at
all. (Applause.) Thus did the French lan
guage spread, little by little, over the Val
leys; and now that new days have come,
and that civil emancipation has put the
Walderisiana on a footing with the other cit
izens of Sardinia—now that toleration and
liberty of conscience would allow them to go
forward, and not only worship God- them
selves, but to proclaim the Gospel of Christ
to others, there was a universal feeling
among the Waldensians that we should take
back the poisession of our own language—
(Hear, hear)—that we may be the better
prepared to spread the Gospel through our
Italian countrymen. Accordingly, several
of our ministers have been found, whose
predication is as eloquent, whose Italian is
as perfect and sweet as that of any speaker
in Tuscany or Rome; and now in our schools
of theology, part of the leptures is, of neces
sity, given in Italian. All our new ministers
must be able to preach Italian, and in our
colleges and schools, Italian must be taught.
In a few years the French language, beauti
ful as it is, will have disappeared, and have
made room for the more harmonious and more
useful language of Italy. (Applause.) And
now I will refer a little to our mission-field.
I can only remind you of those beautiful
congregations which, at Turin, Genoa, Ales
sandria, and Nice, have been gathered by
our missionaries, and at numerous places,
where traveling evangelists and colporteurs
have carried the good news of salvation, and
where men have received it. Our field has
been enlarged every day. Every day new
doors are opened; and we receive new ap
peals from people who wish to hear the Gos
pel, and who, having perhaps happened to
hear it in visiting one of the cities where it
is preached, wish to have it preached in
their own towns and villages.

Things Seen in a Recent Ramble.
The Rev. Mr. H-- accompanied me to
the residence of Doctor S—. My object
in this visit, was to consult the doctor on
the best means to be used "for the removal
of an inflammation, that had been to me for
weeks a severe affliction, and that now
seemed to give signs of becoming a chronic
annoyance, and even to endanger a visual
One of the first articles in the doctor's
excellent prescription, was leeching. That
this might be done, we were directed to the
residence of a German lady, who lived in a
distant part of the city, and who followed
for a livelihood the semi-surgical arts of
bleeding, cupping, blistering, leeching, Sze.
After a long walk, and many inquiries, we
found the residence of this woman, in cer
tainly one of the most dirty, filthy and
gloomy alleys in the place. We entered the
house, and found it ditto. The lady re
ceived us very politely, and excusing her
self, retired for a short time, into a dark,
back room, to adjust her toilet; for when we
first saw her, she was in dishabille.
During her absence, my friend and I
expressed our wonder how any human being
could live happy in a place of such apparent
gloom and poverty. This mystery, as the
reader will see, was fully explained to us in
the sequal of our interview with this re
markable woman. The room was small,
and contained little furniture. The most
conspicuous objects to be seen were large
bulge, or glass vessels, filled with water,
standing upon a table, in which swam to and
fro hundreds of lizzard-shaped animals of
all sizes, from the length of six inches down
wards. I confess, reader, I looked at these
snaky objgcts with some degree of trepida
tion. And my nervous misgivings were a
source of no little amusement to my friend
But, our doctoress returns, and in the
most sangfroid manner possible, removes
the lid from one of the jars, thrusts her
hand in among these now agitated wrigglers,
chases one (about the second in size) round
and round the vessel for a time, until she
catches it; and withdrawing her band, lays
the little fellow a captive in an empty glass
mug, that she held in her other hand. In
the same manner she caught two others. I
then asked, why she did not bring out the
largest ones. " Ah, she said, " tha too pig,
too pig—pite too deep—leave mark." She
then punctured slightly the end of her fore
finger with a needle, and with the blood that
appeared, tinged the !skin in three places,
immediately below my left eye, and holding
the cup with the leeches up to these spots,
the nasty, hungry, blood-loving rascals,
shaking off their apparent torpidity, seized
them with the rapacity of hungry sharks ;
and so deeply did they fasten their little
fangs, that when the cup was withdrawn,
they all hung suspended, like so many bottle
ear-bobs; and if I chanced to move my
head, in the slightest degree, they would
swing about like short pendulums, and their
cold, slimy sides slapped against my fevered
face in a way, as I thought, rather snakish,
and being so near my eye, they appeared
twice their real size; all of which made me
twit most nervously, at which cruel-hearted
H— did laugh most lustily !
The lady, misunderstanding, perhaps, the
merriment of our brother, thought fit to
endeavor to turn his attention to something
more serious, by handing him a religious
tract to read. He took it, and after he bad
glanced at it a few moments, she asked, "fah
it goot ?" He said, yes. Then, said the
lady, in a peculiar animated, though solemn
style, using English exceedingly broken,
which I will by no means,atterupt to imitate,
"I am a poor widow; my dear husband died
long ago; he left me with two children—
boys. These I loved very much; I wanted
God to love them too. I often prayed with
them, and told them that this good book,
(taking down a large Dutch Bible from the
shelf,) that this good Book was the word of
God, and that he said in it that he would
be a hubband to the widow, and a father to
the fatherless. And I told my boys to feel
that God,,was now their father; to love, fear
and obey him. That they must never lie,
swear, drink, gamble, break the Sabbath
day, go into bad company, or do any thing
that God bad told them not to do, in this
Book. My boys did as I told them, and God
has wonderfully blessed them. They work
all day in the city, and come home to me at
night; and Re all read this Bible together,
before we go to bed. We pray, too, and
oh, gentlemen, we do live so happy here!
One of my sons is eighteen years old; the
other is sixteen; and both, I have good
reason to believe, are Christians—they be
long to the Church. The oldest was con
verted two years ago, and he now experiences
daily the joys of pardoned sin. The other
had a hard time, poor fellow, in his struggle
from the bondage of Satan to the liberty of
Christ, but he at last gained the victory; his
poor soul was distressed for months. During
this time he would come home to me at
night, sad. Be would sit down there on the
floor, and, laying his head on my lap, as I
sat by him on a chair, cry and say, Oh,
mother, mother, pray for me, that 1 may be
happy like you and brother!' Then, gen
tlemen," she continued, " I did pray for
him, for it was so sweet to pray for him, and
it was easy too. I readto him the promises
of our blessed Saviour, as found in this
Book; especially that which says, believe
on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be
saved can not turn it into good English,
but if you cou'd understand that promise,
gentlemen, in German, it would he very
sweet; yes, very sweet. Well, after a time,
my poor boy got light! Ile embraced the
Saviour by faith, and sung with David,
'Bless, Oh my soul, the Lord thy f;od; and
all that is within me, bless his holy name.'
Then we were all happy together. Ido feel
that God bas really fulfilled his word to me
and my dear boys. Yes, gentlemen, God is
indeed better than his word, good as that is.
I can not tell you how happy a soul feels
that has all its sins pardoned, and the Lord
Jesus Christ formed within it the hope of
glory. Gentlemen, did you ever experience
this.? Perhaps, you can not understand me.
I talk such poor English; but if you could
read with me this German Bible, you would
see that all I tell you is true. My boys can
talk and read English, and they say that
the English Bible says the same as the Ger
man. I want every body, the rich and the
poor, high and low, learned and ignorant to
know how happy true religion eau make the
soul in this life; and for this reason I send
off to the Tract Society and get a quantity
of tracts, to give to all the agicted people
that come to me for aid. I want to do all
the good I can while I live, and tell all I
see, what a precious Saviour I have found.
My boys, too, take these tracts with them
and distribute them to persons in the city."
Thus, dear reader, this woman talked to
us for a long time, and often could be seen
a sweet smile on her cheek and a glistening
tear in her eye, as she spoke of the love of
God in the soul. We questioned her closely
on the fundamental doctrines of religion, as
well as on its evidences; on the doctrines of
regeneration, justification by faith, sanctifi
cation by the Spirit, the freeness of Divine
grace, and the unmeritorious nature of good
works. She gave just such Scriptural
answers as all truly converted souls always
do on such subjects.
If I were able to give her exactlanguage,
and paint her as she stood before us, speak
ing with all the tenderness and love of a
true child of Jesus, then, dear reader, you
would join wish me in thinking her not
only a wonderful, but exceedingly lovely
But, I can not stay to tell you all. Never
before had I heard the like in suck circum
stances. I had for a time forgotten the
voracious blood.suckers at my eye, and gazed
with astonishment on this Christian lady,
whom I could feel in my heari - , now to love
as a sister. My friend H— was similarly
pleased and affected. After a stay of more
than'an hour, during which time the little
animals had filled • themselves so full that
they dropped off, we started; but not without
paying the lady well for her official services,
and giving her a slight pecuniary reward
for her excellent advice and sermon, which
latter she received rather reluctantly. As
for the leeches that had taken such a feast,
at the expense of my veins, the lady said
the law compelled her to kill them—so that
she dare use them no more. Thus, she
said, theywere like the ungodly who have
their portion in this life—" they does take
one gorge, then die!" An apt illustration,
thought we.
As we wend our way out of the filthy
alley above noticed, my friend remarked :
"Now we see how it is possible to live happy
in such a place as this, and in such an eight
by-ten room. The presence of Christ always
brings happiness. That poor woman knows
more of real happiness than many of the
sumptuously rich, who live in splendor in
Penn Street. Does not this prove that the
little that a righteous man hath is better
than the riches of many wicked ?" Yes—
and might he not have added, "Better is
little with the fear of the Lord, than great
treasures and trouble therewith. And better
is little with righteousness, than great reve
nues without right." And we were both of
the opinion that 'if our Lord Jesus Christ
were again to visit this world in the flesh,
and conic to the great city in which we then
were, he would doubtless pass by many of
the noble edifices of the rich, and find a
welcome among those who live in poverty
and comparative obscurity. Certain am I,
he would pay a ready visit to at least one
Christian there—poor, indeed, in this world's
goods, but rich in all that pertains to eternal
Come now, ye ministers, let us go into
the lanes and allies of all our fields and
cities and seek until we find the sheep of
the chief Shepherd. Let us feed them, and
in doing so we will ourselves be fed. Our
commissions command us to do it. God's
" hidden ones " are among us. Not many
mighty or noble are called. At our gates
are now lying many an humble Lazarus.
Let us visit and ask them in. What are
we doing ? Trophies of Divine grace lie at
our feet, and we look over them to the rich;
to these we call, and no man answers : then
we mourn and lament, "Who bath believed
our report ?" The poor we will always have
with us, and to them the Gospel is to be
preached. I believe it—and it is a great
consolation to me to do so. There are far
more true Christians in our cities than an
outward view might at first lead us to sup
pose. If all on our church rolls are not
holy, yet, all of the holy are not there.
After partaking of an excellent dinner at
the residence of a young, prosperous and
Christian lawyer in the city, I parted with
friend H—, and soon found myself, in my
ramblings, at No. 114 Smithfield Street,
where I met Mr. J. D. Williams, general
purser, and receiver general for all our
Boards, and every other religious institu
tion and Christian enterprise. He stopped
my perambulations on foot, giving me a seat
in his carriage; and after a long drive in
the upper part of the city, where I saw some
I beautiful private residences, and evidence
of much wealth and apparent thrift among
the citizens, I was set down at the beauti
fully-situated and neatly-furnished home of
the pastor of the Sixth Church. I was re
ceived with a welcome by this good brother
and his kind companion, that would have gone
to the heart of the halest man living, much
more - to that of a wearied and wandering in
valid. Here we unrolled and read the recipe
of the Doctor"; and all its requirements and
suggestions were carried out in every par
ticular; although this caused much labor
. and trouble to almost every one in the fam
ily, but especially to the reverend brother
and his sympathiziom wife. Long will I
remember the hours I lay here on my back,
on the well-arranged lounge, while the hand
of Christian kindness busily prepared, and I
gently applied or removed the prescribed
applications to my -painful organs of
:vision. While the gentle fingers of the wife
did this, the busy tongue of the husband
highly entertained and instructed me with a
recital of his first advent to, and his install
ment over the Sixth Church as its pastor.
He had encountered some difficulties, some
of which were discoura g ing, but he had tried
before God, to do his duty. He was much
encouraged to hope that his labors would be
blessed in that field, from various reasons,
especially that of increasing numbers that
from Sabbath to Sabbath attended his minis
try, and a comparatively large accession re
cently made to the membership of his
church. He was fully alive to the high re
sponsibility of his station, as well as to the
kindness of his people, and of his brother
ministers of the other churches of the city.
May God bless him, and make him a blessing
to that part of his vineyard, and to the world;
and may the people gather around and sus
tain him by their prayers and Christian lib

• Women's Rights.
DR. MCKINNEY :—Dear Sir :—I am
well pleased with the story of the little tin
pails. There are but few wives and moth
ers comparatively, that feel the importance
of occupying just the right place in their
families'. It is their privilege to be not only
the "balance wheel," but the main-spring
also. Much has been said of "women's
rights," and I will make an effort to give
you my idea of it. It is a woman's right
to stand at her busband's side, even if he
has been placed on the walls of Zion, or on
the highest pinnacle of fame. It is her right
to make his home the choicest spot on earth
to him. It is her right, as he goes forth to his
duties abroad, (let them be ever so arduous) to
lighten them of half their burden, by her
tender sympathies, by her parting kiss, by
her cheerful encouragement and pleasant
smile. And when he feels that her heart
will be lifted in prayer for him in his ab
scence, to Him who never slumbers nor
sleeps, will he not feel strong and able to
accomplish any task ! Ye wives and moth
ers, you know not the power that our Father
in Heaven has given you. Oh ! try to ex
ert it aright. It is also your right to make
your home a little paradise regained, even
if wealth and all its attendant luxuries are
not there. It is your right to cheer the
desponding, soothe and comfort the dis
tressed, smoothe the pillow of the sick and
Buffering. And last, but not least, it is your
right to walk in the footsteps of the meek
and lowly Jesus; who is now the King of
Kings, and Lord of Lords.
Yours, truly, LIZZIE.

Vermont, holding by the right hand a son,
sixteen years old, mad with the love of the

Novel Reading.
Upon no class of persons, perhaps, does
the habitual reading of that branch f our
literature, denominated, .by way of distinc
tion, "yellow covered," exert a more perni
cious influence than upon the young men
connected with our colleges and other insti
tutions of learning. We have heard it
asserted by those whose positions enable
them to judge intelligently in this matter,
that there is scarcely an instance on record
where a young man, who habitually and
regularly peruses works of fiction during his
undergratuate course, ever received that
degree of mental discipline which is neces
sary for a successful entrance upon the great
duties of life, and which it is the aim of a
collegiate course to furnish. And, indeed,
it is hard to conceive how the case should
be ottierwise; for, besides the enormous
waste of time, which is a necessary conse
quence of any considerable indulgence - in
novel reading, the mind, accustomed to fol
low some sentimental hero or heroine through
all sorts of silly unheard of adventures, and
to revel amid scenes of fancied pleasure and
happiness, takes little delight in attempting
to grapple with the more profound truths of
philosophy and mathematics, even when it
is not wholly incapacitated to do so.
It is a lamentable fact that at least half
of the young men who graduate each year
at our colleges, hardly possess even the
rudiments of a sound and substantial educa
tion. Many, after spending three or four
years within the walls of a university,
possess, in return for their time and money,
little besides their "diploma," to which,
certainly, in our day, no great importance
can be attached. Now, all this may be the
combined effect of many causes, into which
it is not our province to inquire; but we
think we hazard little in saying that the
evil in question may, to a very great extent,
be traced to the "popular novels," which
form so important an element in the com
position of the student's libraries in many
of our colleges. And so long as our young
men are content to spend the precious
moments which ought to be devoted to the
acquisitions of substantial -knowledge, and
to fritter away the knowledge which God
has given them, in poring over books worse
than profitless, to the neglect of all that is
useful and instructive, just so long arc we to
expect superficial thinkers, instead of pro
found thinkers; men triflers, instead of MEN.
We admit that it is very important that
the imagination be cultivated, and we are
quite willing to grant there may be, and
undoubtedly are, works of fiction which
have an elevating rather than degrading
tendency, and which are calculated to
strengthen rather than impair the intellect.
But such works, we apprehend, are extreme
ly rare. And the direct tendency of nine
tenths of the popular novels of the present
day, is to inculcate false views of life, and
to corrupt instead of cultivating the imagi
And we would say to students, whose
attention we wish, at this time, more par
ticularly to arrest, that it is a most erroneous
idea, to suppose that it is necessary for a
young man, while pursuing hie academic
course, to become acquainted with the
whole range of general liter4ure. Better,
far better, to confine your attention to the
text books, which have been chosen for you
by your superiors in knowledge and experi
ence—with, perhaps, a very few well-select
ed volumes each term, than to waste your
precious hours over a confused mass of
"miscellaneous trash." The elegant bind
ings and illuminated covers of this latter
class of, hooks, may serve as ornaments to
the shelves of your librarieg, and assist in
making a display on "commencement occa
sions," but their contents are ill-calculated
to furnish wholesome food for a mind duly
impressed with the value of time, and the
infinite importance of a thorough prepara
tion for the great duties which our Creator
designed us to perform.—Ep. Recorder.
