The Old Year.
BY KITGENE THOMPSON.
The year in growing hoary,
It has nearly told its story,
And the power it had is slipping from its failing
if we fain would keep it longer,
Till its influence is stronger,
All our prayers may not detain it, it must languish
it has lived its life of duty,
It has tilled the world with beauty.
It brought the loving sunshine of the ever happy
It crowned the earth with flowers,
In the lingering Summer hours,
When it seemed that every creature did for very
Then it brought the Autum glowing,
With its wealth of plenty, showing
How the Father loves his children, and will give
them daily food;
And it made the land so cheery,
That the singers grew not weary
Of proclaiming the glad message, that God wills his
Is it therefore any wonder,
That we sigh the while we ponder,
<>n the coining swift departure of our own familiar
That the year and skies together,
And the weeping wintry weather,
Ail unite in lamentation that the intercourse must
Nay, hut let us fiend the rather.
In thanksgiving to our Father,
Who granted from his treasury another useful year;
Let us pray to be forgiven,
All the evil that has striven
To prevent the good we longed for; and we know
that he will hear.
And if he should send another
Young and strong to greet as brother,
(iod give us grace to use it better than we did the
So that it may tell its story
To that Father's praise and glory,
And thus prove that we were learning all the lessons >
of the past.
Wisdom from the Wayside.
Common feelings are the strongest les
sons in mutual forebearance.
It often seems more difficult to pre-1
serve a blessing than to obtain it.
It is astonishing how long a man may *
look through a crowd without discovering I
If we were all permitted to put our own '
valuation on ourselves there would bo no j
low-priced men in the world.
The more gross the fraud the more glib
ly it will go down, and the more greedily (
it will lie swallowed, since folly will al- j
wavs find faith wherever impostors will
lie who speaks ill of another, common-1
ly, before he is aware, makes himself i
such an one as he speaks against; for if j
he had civility or good breeding, he would !
forbear such language.
If my biographer gives me credit for
being a plodder he will describe me justly.
Anything beyond this is too much. I can
plod. I can persevere in my definite pur- j
suit. To this I owe every I hong.— Will
A right use of the opportunities of in- j
struction afforded me in early youth,
would have made tne a scholar ere my
twenty-fifth year, and have saved me at
least ten of the best years of ray life.—
A great man under the shaddow of de
feat is taught how precious are the uses
of adversity; and, as an oak-tree's roots
are strengthened by its shadow, so all de
feat in a good cause are but resting pla-!
ces on the road to victory at last.— Chas. |
A drunkard is the annoyance of modes
ty, the trouble of civility, the spoil of
wealth, the distraction of reason, lie is
the brewer's agcut, the tavern and ale
house benefactor, the beggars companion,
the constable's trouble. He is his wife's
woe, his children's sorrow, his neighbors
scoff, his own shame.
Nature has placed mankind under the
government of two sovereign masters—
Paiu and pleasure. It, is lor them alone
to point out what we ought to do as well
as determine what we shall do. On the
one hand the standard of right and wrong •
011 the other the chain of causes and ef
fects are fastened to their throne.—Ben
I desire to find in books, not what may
be blamed, but what may be praised, and
that from which I may learn something.
This course is not exactly in fashion; but
it is the most useful. Nevertheless,
though there are few books or persons in
I whom I cannot find something of use to
me. I know how to make a differance in
t granting them my confidence.— Godfery
