It is assuredly not thro gh any enlarge-
Mont of man's little apprehensions of
the Infinite and the E ernal that man's
faith in the Scheme of salvation by a
Redeemer need be shaken. We are in
calculably more in danger from one un
subdued passion of our lower nature,
even the weakest and the least, than
from all that the astronomer has Yet.,
discovered in the depths of heaven, or
the geologist in the bowels of the earth.
If one's , heart be right, it is surely a
good, not an evil that one's view should
be expanded ; and geology is simply an
expansion of view in the =diirection of
the eternity that bath gone by."
We can never be positive that the
earth existed •in a nebulous state; but
we knowihat previous to'the formation
of the oldest stratified rocks, it existed
in a state of igneous fluidity;:and that,
as the process of refrigeration went on,
a' crust formed over the surface_of the
molten mass, and that then the waters
of the Ocean were created. At this
point geology becomes one of the exact _
scienteal;-for, from the`moment the
waves and currents began their work'
of erosion, and of piling up layer after
layer of sediment in the , profoonder
depths of the sea=--the story of creation
is written in clear and unmistakable
characters., The numerous leaves in
the books .i.f 'stone; which contain these
characters, have been divided by ge
ologists—if I'May so: exPresis Myself—
into various chapters. These divisions
have been made with respect to the

The Azoic Age, the first in geedogle

With it'will come long evenings - of leis
ure. Young men, what do you intend
to do with these evenings 7
There`are a thohstind inducements to
squander them. The' gaily lighted
liard-room, opens its doors and invites
you Ito enter. The theater, - the ball,
solicit you. All gods of similar tempta
tions allure you 'to spend your time and
money ;..and many of you will be drawn
into extravagant expenditure, by, these,
ih themselves, innocent amusements.
Another and worse class of tempta
tions will beset you. Tlik, drinking sa
loon, the house of ill-fame, will invite
you to enter, and with delusive' excite
ments seek to blind your moral' precep
nor's and lead yon to ruin.
What are you going to do with these
precious;, evenings? Will you throw
away their golden opportunities, and
bring upon, you p. burden of vain regret
fer the years that are to come?.Do, you
riot see their value, if improved ? •
There are thousands of young mechan
ics whin will see the6e words, and will,
some of them,-perhaps, resolve that
this Winter shall not be spent as was
tbe,last r . This. Winter, shall be devoted
to neglected acithmetic, algebra or book
4eeping. They will seize the coming
leisure to perfect their linowledge of
drawing, or to complete their perusal of
some scientific, historical or literary
work begun long ago, 'but still unfin
ished. They know the value of time
and they will no longer squander it.
Alas! how. few of these wise resolu
tions will be kept. Yet we are hopeful
that SOMO will be influenced by our
exhortation to use their time in a more
profitable manner than do the majority
of pleasure-loving young men.
The. means of self-improvetnent are,
now so widely, diffused, that no one
seeking knowledge cln fail to obtain
them, and while wedr not counsel, the.
ci n.
utter renunciation of innocent amuse
ments, it is always wiptdom to subordi
nate these things to higher purposes.
Young mechanics, andyoung men of
whatever occupation you may be, you
may refer your future succeSs or failure
,to the way in which you employ this
Winter's leisure. Then what will you
'do with your evenings ?

No—my uncle will not allow him.'•
She was scanning ray face eagerly as
I asked her these questions, and was
evidently deeply laterest&l.

"Very well, then ; I'll send , you out

upon your guard with reference to one
matter, and that is, there is a set of
troublesome fellows continually hang-.
ing around the train, pretending to be
long to the road. Some of them. may
interfere with you. If they do, put
them off the ears at once—tell them I

Accer,dingly down they went to the
station, and there the pretended Su- •

brakes and the mode of using them—
leaving him with a fresh injunction to
"knock any one who attempted to in
terfere with him."
Before many mbautes the Vermonter
had a customer. The whistle sounded
and on went the brake.
"What are you doing with that

the conauctor, whd returned with the

placed his hand upon Jonathan with a
view to summary ejectment;, A brret
struggle ensued,, at the termination of

upon his back, with the small brake

hero and some half dozen others em

around, and Jonathan was overpowered,

Superintendent's. "store" was sought
