THE MORMON BIBLE.
a oon'vkhted Indian’s opinion of it.
During the Mormon excitement in
Canada, a* a converted Indian wns pass
ing through a white settlement on the
Bay of Qninty, he heard preaching in n
school house, and as he was anxious to
frnrn more about the good works of the
Great Spirit, lie turned in find took his
seat near the door. He 1 stoned, but
instead of hearing nbont the good old
Bib e the preacher was extolling another
Look, he called the Mormon Bible, which
he said was much better anu plainer
than the old one. The preacher then
entered into an explanation as to (he or
igin of this new book, and told how Jo
Smith had dug it out of the ground, and
\va< instructed'to translate it, etc. When
the preacher had finished his discourse,
he gave permission to any one present to
offer their remarks, cither for or against
if. No word for the good old Bible.
The Indian at length role up and said,
“May Indian speak? The preacher
said, “ Yes, Indian may speak.” The
Indian then said:'“A great many winters
ago, the Great Spirit gave his Good
Book, (Bible) to the while roan over the
great waters; he took it and read it, and
it made him all over glad. By and by,
white ronn came over the great waters to
the country,bringing the Good Book with
him ; he give it tc poor Indian, he hear
it and understand it, make his heart all
over glad too,—hut when the Great Spir

Evil Spirit (Muhjemunedoo) try to make
one too, and he try to make it like the
one that the Great Spirit had made, hut
could not; and then he got ashamed of
it, he go into the woods, he dig a hole
Into the ground and there he hide his
book. After lying there many winters,
Jo Smith go and dig it up. This is the
book this preacher has been talking about.
I hold fast on the good old Bible, which
has made my heart so glad. 1 have no
thing to do with the devil’s book.”

No—the love which survives the tomb
is one of the noblest tributes of the soul.
If it has woes, it has likewise its de
lights ; and when the overwhelming burst
of grief is calmed into the gentle tear of
recollection—when the sudden anguish
and convulsive agony over the present
ruins of all that we most loved, is soften
ed away in the meditation on all that
was in the days of loveliness, who would
not root out such sorrow from the heart
Tlvougli it may sometimes throw a pass
ing cloud over the bright hours of gaye-
(y or spread darker shades o’er the hour
of gloom, yet who would exchange it
even for the song of pleasure or the burst
of reveliy. No, there is a voice from
thw tomb sweeter than song. There is
a remembrance of the dead to which we
turn even from the charms of the living.
