God blen the little children,
- We meet them evernhere,
z treastah
We bear their 'foie round our hearth,.
Tkeir footsteps o our stair ! )
Their kindly traits nig o'er
With mirthfulnensand glee;
God bless the little children
Wherever they may be.
We meet them 'neath the gipsy tent.
With visage swarth and dun.
'And'eyesthat sparkle as they glum*
Witb roguery and fun;
We find them fishing in the briwk
For minnows with a pin,
Os creeping through tha,buel busts
The linnet's nest to win.
We meet them in the lordly hall,
Their stately father's pride,
We meet them in the poor man's cot—
He hath no wealth beside,
Along the city's crowded street.
They hurl the hoop or ball
We find them 'neath the pauper's roof—
The saddest sight of
For there they win no father's love,
No mother's tender care ;
Their only friend the Gott above
Who hears the orphan's prayer.
But dressed in silk di draped in`rap,.
In childish grief or glee,
God bless the little children
Wherever theq• may be.
How mildly on the wandering clonal
• Tha•aaoset beam is cast
'Tie like the memory left behind'
When loved ones breathe their last.
And now, shove the dews of night+.
The yellow star lippews i
So faith springs in the hearts of those.
Whose eyes are bathed in tears.
But soon the morning's happier light
he glory shall restore,
And eyelids that are sealed in deal*
Shall wake to close no more.
Try the Unruly Boy Again.
Will you let your son attend Sunday-school
ma'am ?" said a Sunday-school teacher to a
mother who did not cherish the fear of God
in her heart.
"I don't care if' he does, for I am glad to
get him out of the house, especially on Sun
days. He is an unruly fellow, and if you
can manage him I shall be glad, for I'm sure
I can't."
With this ungracions condemnation from
his mother, the teacher took the boy. Bat
the good man soon found that this boy was
more than lie could manage. ,Though only
ten years old, he soon became the plague of
the class and the Arab of the *hole school,
He was brimful of antics. Now he would
pinch a litt:e fellow near him till he scream
:ed with the offense stoat-
ly deny it with a face as grave and °solemn
es penitence. By and by when the teach
er's heart was must earnest and his appeals
sulst tender, this boy won d make a grimace
so overpoweringly ludicrous as to set the
whole class in a roar of laughter. Vainly
did the teacher rebuke and entreat. Wick
edness and mischief wore his delight, and
he would not be restrained.
Finding him so incurably disobedient, the
teacher had him turned out of school. But
when the deed was done he reflected : "I
have turned that boy out of school. Into
what have I turned him? "The streets.—
To the care of a mother who has no control
over him whatever. "Mai will 'become of
him ? Ile will certainly be ruined • I can
not, give him - up. • I will try him oyain.".
Once more, then, the boy was taken into
that teacher's class. But he had been,by no
means improved 'by his" etpulsion, lie was
as reckless, troublesome, ungovernable as be,
fore. No school could 'tolerate such a pupil.
What more could the teacher do? lle
tried a new measure. He ,took the little re
bel after school into a olass-room, and beg
ged 'him to :kneel by ;hie aide: The" boy
kneeled. The teacher prayed until the heart,
"of the boy was touched. Then the teacher
arose, and taking theland of his pupil, told
hinr-boty 'Jesus 'loved his . eoul an& died' to
save it., - Then the bey'sheart melted., ' The
teat 'inured 'down .his cheeks, and between
the intervals of his awn sobs and •liiir-leach

of the labor of the hands to supply the wants
of the . physical native • the answering_ of,
"What shall we eat, and what shall we drink,
and wherewithal shall we be clothed ?"
Money can accomplish all thif we have
it, and if not, we will not sigh, nor fret, nor
covet; for the heart-work, the solicitude of
a good mother for a sirtnona and honorable
character in her children, walks forth with a
bolder, steadier step by the side of frugality
and daily labor, than it is apt to do if sepa
rated from them.
It is a well known fact that almost all - the
true greatness, the noble virtues, the hero
ism which, the - world has seen ; have arisen
from the lap of obscurity, poverty and toil.
But the work to which we now refer is that
which every mother, whether rich, or poor,
whatever the viivantages or disadvantages of .
her eireumstancea may be, is required "by
the most sacred - and rigid - obligations-to-a
chieve—the assiduous cultivation of the in.
her nature, of that which makes the true
man or woman, that which live forever and
ever. • For this she must be always at her
post, with never so much as a recess from
her maternal care and solicitude, toiling on,
breaking up the ground, sowing the seed,
training the tender plant, enriching the soil,
watering, nourishing, 'stimulating every good
and pleasant growth, until the flowers begin
to bloom and the fruit to ripen. Then comes
a heyday of enjoyment, of rest and comfort
to the mother, in the golden tumn of her
life, when, surrounded by a grow of affec
tionate, dutiful, virtuous, and noble sons and
daughters, she sits among them in beautiful -
repose, her fhce radiant in the glow of her
own head's ever basing love, and the smile
of Heaven as a halo of Fight about her head
—a spectacle to be admired and enviedof all.
But this season of comfort, this "Indian Sum-,
mer" of matereek Me, never, never comes to
those who evade their responsibilities, for
sake their trust, and leave their work for
others to do, for the sake of personal ease,
sensuous indulgence, or selfish gratification.
The very thing they seek they lose by a
lamentable and hopeless mistake, verify the
words of our Lord, "Whosoever will save
his life shall lose it; bat whosoever stalk
lose his life for my sake, the same shall save
An 1812 War. Story
The following we believe has never been
seen in print. Ogden Hoffman used to tell
the story. He was in the great fight between
the Constitution and Guerriere,
and said that
as the British ship came sailing down on them
as they heard the sharp orders, when the guns
• out-and-the-men-could-be-seen
with their match-locks, an officer came in
haste to Captain Isaac Hull and asked for or
ders to fire. "Not yet," was- the quiet re
sponse. As they came still nearer,and the Brit
tish vessel poured in her fire, the first lieuten
ant of the Constitution came on the poop and
begged permission to _return the broadside,
saying that the men could not be restrained
much longer. "Not yet," was the indifferent
reply. Still nearer the British ship came,
and the American prisoners, who were in
the ceekpit of the Onerriere, afterwards
said that they began to believe that their
own countrymen were afraid to measur3 their
strength with that of the • enemy, anci
this thought gave them more pain
than the wounds which some of them were
still 'suffering from. In a moment the Guer
riere gallantly came forward, showing her bur
platted sides; and as the swell carried her
close to the verry muzzle of "Old Ironsides,"
Captain Huß, who was then keit* fat and
dressed in full tights; bent himself twice to
the deck, and with 'every muscle and vein
trobbing with excitement, shouted out as he
made another gyration. "Now, boys, pour it
into them." That broidside settled their'
opponents, and *hen thl smoke cleared a
way, the Commodore's tights were to be seen
-split from waisbaud to heel. Truly the Com
modom had a 'sdul "too r' f*Ji his breeches
Hoffman used to add than Hull, nothing dis.
concerted, gave his orders' with boolnets - ,
and only changed his , tights' when the Brit
ish commander's sword was, giVeh 'fip to him.

'Have you heard of the great clock of St.

Anecdote of a Teacher-Soldier.

lecture on "Awakening Mind." The kick

Oaks, and is as follows :
A rebel battery, handled in a masterly
manner, was mowing our men down, and it
seemed impossible to drive it from its posi

the Captain of Lancaster county company.
"Captain, 1 want some one who_ will go out
between these two armies and shoot the offi

General, it's certain death to attempt it I"
"I know it, but you seelhat fire is deeimina

Captain, as he returned to his company.-
"Boys, who of' you are willing' to go out is

ranks--." I'll go." 11e went, seemingly
