"'Tis only an infant's grave," they said,
And turned away with a careless tread;
Nor wasted a thought on the sad hearth-stone,
Where the weeping mother sits alone.
God pity the mother, that in the skies,
Sees but the blue of her infant's eyes I
Hears in the winds that round her moan
Nought but her infantsdying groan.
God pity the mother and pity us
Whose selfish hearts heed not the call—
"I have taken this little lamb in love,"
"Of such is the kingdom of heaven" above !
Bring flowers, fresh flowers, and plant them here,
Nor water the grave with a single tear.
Why grieve that the golden pave is trod
By the feet of an infant spirit-shod?
Why mourn that the "harp of a thousand strings"
Is thrilled by the rush of its glittering •wings?
Why weep that a new-born angel lies
On the breast of the Lamb of the Sacrifice ?
Oh! weeping mother! lift thine eyes
To the retain of peace beyond the skies;
And the eye of faith, though now so dim,
May see the form of a cherubim— •
Close by the Saviour's bleeding side.
Can aught of harm thy child betide ?
Companion sweet of God's dear Son; .
How happier far thy little one—
Enmansioned in its heavenly rest—
Than when.enfolded to thy , breast ?

lAttle children believe everything that
they hear and read, and until deceived they
are confiding. It is painful to see the
change often effected in them. Sometimes
it is men in regard to a few persons around
Ahem, and again, in a general distrust of the
whole human family.
A boy of seven years•old expressed a wish
that a kind gentleman who was going, to
visit the.town.wouldbuy him , a fishing-rod.
" Ask your parents," said the man. They
gave <their consent. " But," 'said the fa
ther to the boy, "you had better ask your
mother lor the dollar you put in her hands,
as it'may cost thatmuch to get - a good one."
Aftit, nomexeflection the lad said, " Papa,
would it not be better to wait until the
geatleinanbrings the. rod. He may .never
come back. He may break the rod after
he buys it. Or he may spend the money
for something else, or lose it."
The parent heard all this, and did not
rebuke his too cautious son, but left him
to grow up . with a still more hard and dis
trustful spirit ; we doubt not but that he
through life felt its bad influence.
Children ! you had better be deceived a
thousand times, than to learn to distrust
the general honesty of the race. It is a
bad habit to deem all men dishonest until
you find out the contrary. This wretched
skepticism leads to a want of confidence in
God, his providence, and his Word. Many
parents educate this disposition in their
children. "Be on your guard," they say,
"you will be duped. You will be imposed
upon. Look out for number one." David
said, but he said it in his haste : " All men
are liars." He had occasion to find out that
his judgment was not true.
It was gay, glad Spring-time when Mary
arid Hattie, one seven and the other five
years of age, gainbolled in the bright sun
shine, echoing the song of the birds in
merry peals of laughter. At length, weary
with rambling, and with aprons fall of lilac
and apple-tree blossoms, they seated them
selves on a bank of soft, velvety green, their
eyes sparkling with joy, and sweet smiles
playing about their ruby lips.
Then little Hattie said, " I do love God ;"
and dropping her flowers, she reverently
clasped her hands, and raised her eyes,
glowing with ecstasy, to the blue sky.
"So do I love God, too " said Mary, as
she continued weaving her flowers into pret
" Yes, " said Hattie, "but I know God
Mary, raising her head from her busy
fingers, and looking at Hattie's beaming eyes,
said, " How do you know God loves you ?"
"Oh, I feel it."
" How do you feel, Hattie ?"
"Oh, I'm so happy ; " and clasping her
hands more closely, she continued to look
up, as if she knew God saw her; and Mary
thought, as she twined her flowers, "How
I wish I knew God loved me !"
Mary, and Hattie are still living, and
have never forgotten the teachings of that
bright May morning.
When Hattie Was sixteen she publicly
prpfessed Christ; and so 'sweet washer joy,
that she felt her Saviour's presence almost
as if 'she saw him face to face. She often
said, " How like the morning on the bank 1
That sunshine was golden, and that sky
was heavenly, and those flowers breathed
love and peace in their sweet fragrance,
and the gentle zephyrs, as they touched my
brow,, seemed loving whispers from my
Father in heaven."
Dear children, do you wish to know that
God loves you? Then pray as Hattie did,
" 0 God love me, and help me to love thee."
"Lose thy Neighbor as Thyself."
A merchant in Macon, Georgia, who had
just finished unpacking his goods, stepped
to the door and looked about for spme one
whom he might employ to take the empty
boxes into his back yard. Seeing two lit
tle boys passing, he asked them if they
wanted the job, and told them they should
have a quarter a-piece when they had finish;
ed. This very much delighted the
boys, and they set to work with such alac
rity that they had finished long before sun
down, and with Smiling faces presented
themselves before the counter for payment.,
The merchant praised their industry, and
opening his cash drawer, began turning
about the coins to find.the two quarters he
needed for the little boya,; but it so
happened that there was but one quarter in
the drawer, and so he gave this to one of
the lads, anti the other one he gave three
dimes as the nearest he could come to the
change. The little fellow who received
the thirty cents offered to bring back the
change, but the merchant told him to keep
it. He thanked the gentleman, and then
as they passed out, one of the clerks of the
store heard the generous 'boy' say to his
companion, " Well, Johnny, we will go
and buy some marbles with the five cents,
and divide them between us, for we worked
just alike, and it is not fair that I should
have more pay than you
Now, young reader, was not this a noble
boy—generous as well as just ? And don't
you suppose that the exercise of such feel
ings made him far happier than. the pos
session of thousands could have done, if ac
eompanied by selfishness or unkindness ?
The Final 'Destiny of the Earth
Encke's comet, which revolves about the
sun in3k years, has been observed to complete
its revolution in a constantly shortening pe
riod, showing that it is being drawn inward
-toward the sun. This fact has led to the
general conclusion by astronomers that the
planets are moving in a resisting medium,
far more attenuated than our atmosphere,
but still - sufficient to , affect their; motions..
If this is so, it follows by strict necessity
that our earth and its sister orbs are all
winding spirally toward the sun, and that
they must eventually strike' against it and
become incorporated with its mass. The,
time required for this purpose belongs to
those inconceivable periods 'with ich
geology and astronomy have to deal. The
resisting medium is so exceedingly attenu
ated that it exerts but a slight influence On
the comets, which are themselves masses of
the very thinnest vapor, and its influence
would of course be, very much , less on the
dense matter of
,the, planets. Astronami,,,
cal'observations,. with all their woziderful
delicacy, have yet failed to detect the slight
est progressive shortening in the periods
of revolution of any -of the planets. It is
curious, however, to note the multiplied ob
stacles which prevent the perception of this
fact, if it does exist. All the measures of
these revolutions are shortening with the
revolutions themselves. It -we begin, for
instance, with the earth, the problem is to
ascertain whether the time occupied by the
earth in its journey around the sun is grad
ually becoming shorter. The first plan
that suggests itself is to compare this with
the rotation of the earth upon its axis,
to see whether the year occupies the same
number of days and hours and seconds that
it did in former times. But if the earth is
gradually cooling, it is contracting, in size,
and its rotations on its axis are becoming
more rapid; in other words, the day is short
ening with the year; and if the measure
shrinks just in proportion to the thing
measured, we cannot tell whether the latter
is becoming shorter or not. If we take
the time of the revolutions of the moon
around the earth as a standard, the same
resisting medium would draw the moon to
ward the earth and shorten the month al
so with the year. If we resort even to the
less satisfactory: measure of the sun's rota
tion on his axis, his bulk is also diminish
ing by the radiation of his heat, and the
period of his rotation is consequently be
coming shorter. In brief, from the two
causes of radiation and the resisting medi
um all the times and distances which could
be used to measure the earth's distance
from the sun (or the period of its annual
revolution) are shortening together. So
that the differences in the extent of these
several contractions are the only means left
for detecting, by. observation the approach
of the earth to the sun, if such approach is
really taking place. These differences
- doubtless reveal themselves-in the

course of generations to idned astronomical
If the earth and the sun are gradually
becoming cold, this winding or tbe earth
toward the sun would tend to keep up
its warmth, and it may be a wise pro
vision for prolonging, by some millions of
years, the continuance of animal life upon
our globe: But: this period must come to a
close, for if there is a resisting medium
pervading the space between us and the
sun, the final destiny of the earth is to
curve gradually inward till, with a velocity
hundreds of times greater than that of a
cannon ball, it dashes itself with an awful

The unit of heat is that which is suffic
ient to raise the temperature of "one pound
of water by one degree of Fahrenheit The
unit of work is the raising of one pound
weight through a vertical hight of one foot
—called a foot-pound. The experiments of
Mr. Joule, of Manchester, indicated, that
if the whole of the heat could be rendered
available, a ;unit of heat would raise 772
pounds one foot high; in other words, a
unit of heat is equal to 772 foot-pounds.
This is called Joule's equiiialentL A.pounA
of charcoal will raise 78.15 pounds of -wa
ter 180 degrees, which is equal to 14,087
units of heat. This multiplied by 772,
gives 10,859,724 foot:pounds, :which is
equal to the prociuctaon of,' 5 , 1 horse power
from the eonabustion of one pound of char

sume 'nearly two pounds' of coal per horse,
power per hour, it follows that only about"
one tenth part
,of the gross power of the
fuel is 'ultili zed:- '
We are acquainted with more than one in
telligent inventor who, aware that in the
best steam engines of the_present form on
ly about one-tenth part' ofthepower`of the
fuel is utilized, are busy in devising en
gines of a radically different model, which
they hope will yield several fold more power,
with the same fuel.

LADIES SHOULD READ NEWSI'AITRS.-:
It is one great, mistake in female educifieisi,
to keep a young lady's time and attention
devoted to only the fashionable litera
ture of the day. If: you - would
her for conversation, you must give
something to talk about—give her' an
acquaintance with the actual world, and
its transpiring events. Urge her, to read
newspapers, and become familiar with the
present character and improvement of our
race. History is of some- importance, but
the past world is dead, and we have ittle,
comparatively, to do with it. Our thoughts
and our concerns should be for the present
world—to know what it is, and improve its
'condition. Let her have an intelligent
conversation concerning the mental, moral,
political, and religious improvements of our
times. Let the gilded annuals and poems
on- the centre -table be kept a part of the
time covered with weekly journals. Let
the family—men, women, and children—
read the newspaper.—Ereharge.

ME Western Christian Advocate, (IVleth
oiist) pronounces decidedly against protract
ed meetings. One of its objections,
they involve a great amount of labor and
exposure from pastor and people, often un
fiting the•pastors for 'labor during the re
mainder of the year, and it concludes that
' condition of the church which requires a
protraded meeting, in order to awaken the
members and make sinners believe there is
a reality in religion, is a sore evil, and one
that will ultimately ruin the church unless
it is removed."

journals and. reminiscences, placed - in his hands, asap make a
narrative which lifts the veil from every part of an intensely
real and very eventful life. It is, from first to laet, the his
tory of genuine human life, as developed in the childhood,
, youth•and riper years of a singularly gifted woman and .a
history so well told, withal, as to pcosess the captivating
power of a well-wrought romance. It will find its way to
tens of thousands of homes, to tell its truthful and eloquent
tale Of Conflicts and triumphs; and to Impart new ooncep
flow' Of the graces which adorned, and the principles which
governed a character whose "delicate and beautiful genius"
won the admiration of the most cultivated minds.
i'rom, the New-York Independent
A' memoir albs. Emily C. Judson, unfolding her inner
spiritual life, and recording her experiences in the mission
ary held, was due equally to.the. Fanny Forrester of the Meg
azine world, and to the saintly apostle of Emmett. * *
We are glad that the commemoration , of such a character de
volved upoli one Whose combined graces of scholarship and
Chriatian zeal qualify him to appreciate the tlubject of
his Methoir, and 'to delineate her life under all phases.
The literary attractions of the volume are many and various;
but its one impression is that Christ is all.
