s never to be other than the singer of their virtues, greatly troubled me at times. There are some, by nature proud, who patient in all else, demand but this: To love and be beloved, with gentleness; and being scorned, What wonder if they die, some living death!--Shelley. To her own children, Aunt Mary was the best of mothers. Had I received but a tithe of her affection, I fear that, like an ass partial to his crib, I should have become too home-loving ever to leave. As Jacob served Laban, I would have served aunt for years, for a mere smile, but she had not interest enough in me to study my disposition, or to suspect that the silent boy with a somewhat dogged look could be so touched by emotion. What I might have become with gracious treatment her youngest son David became. He clung to his mother's hearth, and eventually married the daughter of Jones, of Hurblas, by whom he had a large family. All his life he remained profoundly ignorant that beyond his natal nook the uni
e given by Abraham's servant to Rebecca; a golden ear-ring of half a shekel weight, and bracelets for her hands of ten shekels weight of gold. Vessels of various kinds and images were also made of it, and at a very early day. It is generally allowed to be the best material for drinkingvessels and table-ware, and has been a favorite therefor in all historic ages. Joseph, who was viceroy of Egypt, speaks of my cup, the silver cup. The images (terraphim) which Rachel stole from her father Laban were no doubt of silver. The ancient notices of silver are numerous, both as a medium of exchange and for articles of use, ornament, and luxury. A traveler in Honduras describes the primitive mode in which silver ores are treated by the Indians in that country. The man disappeared in a hole in the hillside, and presently appeared with a lump of ore. The man and woman then selected each a flat stone, and began pounding the ore, which was thus gradually reduced to the condition of a

mindful of death, she was first concerned with a living faith. This faith is the burden, too, of Whittier's Our master (1866), a devotional poem from which several hymns have been excerpted, the best known of which is the passage beginning We may not climb the heavenly steeps, To bring the Lord Christ down. With this mid-century group arrived a new set of composers, such as Barnby and Dykes and Bradbury, whose music is a departure from the sturdy four-four rhythms of Lowell Mason's Laban or Uxbridge or Hamburg. Their newer melodies tend to the use of three-four and six-four measures, and to consequent sweetness rather than vigour. They are attuned to the emotional appeals of the non-conformist pulpit rather than to the stately traditions of Rome or England. They mark the difference between Longfellow and Newman, or between Calkin's Waltham for Bishop Doane's Fling out the banner and Sherwin's Chautauqua for Mary A. Lathbury's Day is dying in the West, each a high example

e State, and an unfaltering allegiance to its authority. They possessed a chivalrous courtesy, and notable deference and delicacy in intercourse with women, who elicited the admiration of the world by their intelligence and purity and modesty and refinement, as by their capability of sacrifice and endurance of privation. It is true that some admirable peculiarities, originating with and inseparable from our condition and system of industry, have gone, like the clouds that Rachel watched by Laban's well, nevermore to be seen by men. This statue, representing the infantry, like the 14 entire structure, is an institution of education dedicated to heroism. It inculcates a love of the State, and shows the honor rendered to men who encounter hardships and dangers for the liberty, independence and power of their country, and commemorates the virtues of valor and patriotism. It will stimulate youths to admire and cultivate ennobling qualities, and to emulate, if they may not excel, the a

ctures of the Fornarina, and by another on the social status of the early Christians, in which it was maintained that wealth had been by no means a contraband among them, and that the holding of goods in common had been but a temporary feature of the new discipline. The exercises concluded with the performance by chorus and orchestra of a musical composition, which had for its theme the familiar Bible story of Rebecca at the Well. A noticeable French feature of this was the indignation of Laban when he found his sister alone with a man, the same being the messenger sent by Abraham to ask the young girl's hand in marriage for his son. The prospect of an advantageous matrimonial alliance seemed to set this right, and the piece concluded with reestablished harmony. My friend M. Frederic Passy asked me one day whether I should like to see the crowning of a rosiere in a suburban town. He explained to me that this ceremony was of annual occurrence, and that it usually had reference t
A Bunch of stragglers. --A highly mixed up sort of crowd left the city yesterday for Baltimore. They were ring streaked and speckled like Laban's goats, gotten up in every variety of style. They comprised a lot of stragglers from at least a dozen different regiments from various parts of the country, who in New York had got astray. How they were ever got together is more than we can find out. The Camden people describe them as the hardest cases ever yet drummed together. They represented every describable style of uniform, from that of the Zouave to the plainest of grays. Some of them appeared to have been upon a prolonged trolie, and carried heads so swelled that if the Baltimore railroad were in any part tunnelled they couldn't possible pass it. About every other man in the party was tipsy, while some of them, having indulged in a fight on the cars, were now lamenting over closed optics and flattened proboscis.--Philadelphia North American.
