THE RIVER OF LIFE.
'I he more we live, more brief appears
Our lile’s succeeding stages;
A day to childhood seeuis a year,
And years like passing ages.
The gladsome cuircntcf our youth,
Ere passion yet disorders,
Steals lingering like a river smooth
Alojg the grussy borders.
But as the careworn cheeks grow wan,
And sorrow's that fly thicker,
Ye stars, that measure life to man,
Why stem your courses quicker?
When joys have loet their bloom and
And life itself is vapid,
Why, ns we near the Falls of Death,
Feel we its tide more rapid^
It may be strauge, yet who would change
Time’s course to slower speeding,
When one hy one our friends have gone
And left our bosom bleeding?
Heaven gives our years of fading strength
And those of youth a seeming length
Proportioned to their sweetness.

What is there mote noble, more

is <t blessing to man, it is a shield in

be impressed on the mind when

memories of lessons o! truth learned,

lips are now silent. It is said that
Washington, the father of our coun

cut. his licit tree, hesitated, but only
lor a moment, then lifting his tiuth
fill eyes to his father’s lace he said:
“Yes, lather, it was I who cut your
tree with my new hatchet; I can’t
till yon an untruth.” There wn-
something so noble in the confession.
How proud that lather must have

The law, it is said, takes no notice

of February it takes no notice of the

computed as one day. For example :
Suppose a note is dated on the 28th
of February, 1880, payable one day
from date. Ordinuriuly it would be
payable on the 4th of March, and so
it is leap year, and not on the 3d. In

A Pretty Sentiment.
The glory of summer has gone by,
the beaut Cul greenness has become
withered and dead. Were this all—
were there no associations, of moral
desolation, of faded hopes, of hearts
withering in the bosoms of the living
connected with the decaying scenery
around, we would not indulge in a
moment.’s melancholy. The season of
floweis wiil come again, the streams
flow gracefully as before; the trees
will again toss their cumbrous heads
of greenness to the suclighty and by
mosey stone and winding rivulet the
coming blossoms will start up at the
bidding of their guardian. But the
human heart lias no chance like that
of nature. It has no returning spring
time Once blighted in its hour ol
pleasures, it bears forever the mark
of the spoiltt. The dews of affection
may fall, and the gently ra:n ol sym
yathy he lavished upon* it, but the
stone root if blighted feeling will
nc-vt-r again waken hid* life, nor the
crushed flowers ol hope blossom with
’heir wonted b-uuty.

The beloved of the Almighty are
the rich who have the humility of
the poor, and the poor who have the
magnanimity of the rich.
Life is made up of little things,
in which smiles and kindness giveu
habitually are what win and preserve
the heart and secure comfort.
A Benutliul Thought,
When the entnmer of youth is
slowly wasting away on the night fall
of age, and the shadow of the path
becomes deeper und life wears to its
close, it is pleasant to look through
the vista of time upon the Borrows
and felicities of our earlier years. If
we have had a home to shelter, and
hearts to fejoice with us, and friends
have gathered round our fireside, the
rough places of wayfaring will have
been worn and smoothed away in the
twilight of Me, and many dark spots
we have passed through will grow
bl ighter and more beautiful. Hap
py, indeed, are those whose inter
course with the world hasn’t changed
the (one of their holier feelings, or
broken those musical chords of the
heart whose vibrations ar* so melo
dious, so tender, and so touching in
the evening of their lives.
