the seem between,,th Win e brave old Ethan Allen and his
daughter, riCtlie delr 'of her death, when she oohed the
stern infidel In whose faith he would have her die—hie or
her mother's ,-
" diatin of death are obtning fast,
My father olermy'brow;
The past with all ltirseenes has fled,
And I must turirme no*
To that dim futurfrorlitohAtrealn
My feeble eyes descry.;
Tell me, my father, , in,this hoar,
In whose stern faith ,to die.
In thine ? I've watched the ebornful smile,
And heard thy witheringlone,
Wheneer the Christian's humble hope
Was placed above thine own
've heard thee speak of coming „death
Without a shade of gloom, ,
And laugh at all the childish fears:
That cluster round the tomb.
Or is It in my mother's faith'?
How fondly do I trace,
Through many a' weary year long past
That calm and saintly fame!
How often do I call to mind, ~
Now she is 'neath the sod,
The place, the hour, -in wl iah.She drew
My early thottOto to God!
"rwns then she took this osored'book,
And from its burning page,
Read how its truths support the soul
In youth and failing age I
And bade me in its precepts live;
And by its precepts die,
That I inightshare a home of love,
In woilds beyond the sky.
ti Mytailteri shall I look above,
Amid this gathering gloom,
To Him whose promises of love
Extend beyond the tomb?
Or curse the Being whUhatit'blesited
This chequered path 'tit mine ?.
And pro'inises eternal rest!
Or die, my sire, in thine?"
The frown upowthatiltarrier brow
Passed like a' elondwway
And tears coursed dowtrthat rugged cheek
That flowed not till 'that day.
" Not—not miner with 4 choking voice,
The skeptic madoreply—
" But in thy mother's holy faith, ;ii
My daughter„ nay'st thon'. 4 die I"

remarked "There are few kinder things,

to appreciate the beauties of a well wrought

whilst it is,proper to,use a 'good paraphrase

This etrange devotion to Rotise, sand his
"inspired words," seems ;to be in a , great
measure peculiar to modern times, if not,
indeed, to our Ameilean Oburahes. The
