VOL. II1. PRESBYTERIAN COMMITTEE OF PUBLICATION, RICHMOND, Va. BOB,THE CABIN BOY. Some time ago, a vessel sailed from England with a captain whose habitual blasphemy, drunkenness, and tyranny so disgusted the crew, that some of the most fatal consequences might have taken place, but for his sudden and alarming illness. The mate took charge of the ship, and the captain, greatly afflicted, was left by the unanimous voice of the crew to perish in his cabin. He had continued nearly a week in this neglected, state, when the heart of a poor boy on board was touched with the sufferings of this wicked man, and he determined, notwithstanding the opposition of the crew, to enter the cabin and speak to him. So opening the state-room door, he called out, "Captain, how are you?" A surly voice replied, "What's that to you? be off." Thus repulsed, the boy went on deck ; but next morning, he determined to make another attempt, and at the state-room door cried, "Captain, hope you are better ?" "Oh, ...

22 captainsays I must pray for him, but I don't know how. I am but a child. I should be glad to get him tea, or do anything I can for him ; but, Lord, I don't know how to pray for him. Lord, harve mercy on him. He says he shall be lost; Lord save him ! He says he shall go to hell; Lord, take him to heaven ! He says he shall be with devils; O that he may be with angels ! Don't let him perish, 0 Lord. Thou knowest I love him, and am sorry he's so ill. The men won't come near him. I will pray whilst I can for him as long as he lives, but I can't save him. O Lord, pity my poor captain : see how thin and weak he is! 0, comfort his troubled mind. Lord, I never prayed before like this; O help me, Lord, to pray for my master." Rising, from his knees, he said, "There, master, I have done the best I could for you. How, cheer up; I think you'll go to heaven." The captain was too much affected to speak.— The simplicity, the sincerity, and humility of the lad's prayer, had so much impressed his ...

From little seed sweet flowers do spring, And perfume e'er onr pathway fling The noble oaks derive their birth From acorns buried in the earth ; And the,bright corn, on waving plains, Rose from the tiny scattered grains. And infant hands may plant the seed, And from that small and simple deed Rich produce shall adorn the ground, And gladden av'ry heart aronnd ; For God will send the ffun and shower To Cherish and refresh the flower. Tlow small the seed appears,— Oft sown with trembling and with tear* ; And yet thmt precious germ imparts Fragrance and life to barren heart?. Nor shall its progress stay until Its branches the wide world shall fill. And a chiH's soft and earnest prayer Riot" bTessings may to others bear ; And a child's p.enny, rightly given, .

Through grove and glade, in sun and shade, o'er hill and vale they go, And run and leap until their cheeks With ruddy freshness glow. Dear children, if you would enjoy Your time of play aright! Strive in the time of school to learn With all your heart and might. Then will your hours of pastime grow More happy and more gay, Then will you find how true it is Work always sweetens play.

42 RECOMMENDATIONS. t GENTLEMAN once advertised for a boy to assist him ill his office, and nearly fifty applied for the place. Out of the whole number he in a short time chose one, and sent the rest away. " I should like to know." said a friend, "on what ground you selected that boy; he had not a single recommendation with mistaken," said the gentleman ; ■ne nau a great many: He wiped his feet when he came in, and closed the door after \ him; showing that he was orderly and tidy. He gave up his seat instantly to that lame old man ; showing that he was kind and thoughtful. He took oif his cap when he came in, and an nvered my questions promptly and respectfully: showing that he was polite. He lifted up the book which I had purposely laid on the floor, and placed it on the table, while all the rest stepped over it or thrust it aside ; showing that he was careful. And he waited quietly for his turn, instead of pushing the others away ; showing that he was modest. When I talked with hi...

VOL. XII. ALICE AND THE GARDENER. RE you not tired, working over these P° ts ie me ?" said Alice to the Garl dener. It was a lovely August morning, and she was out for a walk. She thought it very dull to be tied down to work in one spot. " Work may be hard, Miss Alice," said James; "but it would go harder to be idle. Laziness, that's the tiresome - thing! I couldn't be hired to do nothing! Besides, it's my good wife, and the children, and the great Lord in heaven, that I'm working for." Reunion in Heaven. —"I am fully persuaded," says Baxter, " that I love my friends in heaven, and therefore know them; and this principally binds me to them on earth.

Now, when Satan says, 'You are a sinner, a great sinner, you must remember, 'Jesus died for sinners and when he tells you that you are mistaken, remember Jesus says, ' Him that cometh unto Me, I will in no wise cast out.'" After prayer, I said, "Do you love Jesus, Annie?" "Yes, Ido love Him; and I am happy again. How good Ood is, just when I was unhappy to send you."' "And now all is peace?" "Yes, I am very happy." I was obliged to leave home for a few days, and left her a sheet of paper to keep a little record of her feelings in case we might not meet again. This we were permitted to do about ten days after. The disease had made great advance ; she was supported in an upright position, panting for breath. She greeted me with a glad smile, and faintly whispered, "I've not got home yet." "But very near?" "Yes, very near." "Are you quite happy?" " Yes, very happy since the day you called —all mercy and peace.'' ...

86 THE EVENING PRAYER. /miS. ELLIOT was a busy woman, but 311 she was never too busy to put her \ darlings to bed herself, and to hear them their evening prayers. No matter how many engagements were pressing on her time and care, she always gave the little ones their own happy hour after tea. " Do you think, mamma dear," said Jessie one evening, " that Jesus hears my prayer, when so many other children are praying to Him at the same time ? I should think He would grow confused, and not know which little voice was talking to Him. What answer did Mrs. Elliot make to Jessie's question ? Does anybody wonder ? Well, she said this : "Dear little Jessie, when you call me in the night, even if I am half asleep, I know which one it is who is in want of mamma. Though I may be tired or sick, it is not a trouble to me to rise and go to the bed and find what it is that my child wants. Jesus is more tender than any mother can be. And He is never weary, and there is no little lamb in all his flock...

VOL. XII. THE GOOD NATURED BEAR. <&' N the valley of "Tajarrau, in Siberia, two Ijr children, one four and the other six j years old, rambled away from their friends, Mf who were haymaking. They had gone from one thicket to another, gathering fruit, laughing and enjoying the fun. At last they came near to a bear lying on the jKJ grass, and without the slightest fear went up to him. He looked at them steadily without nioving. At length they began playing with him, jU and mounted upon his back, which he submitted to with perfect good humour. In short, both were inclined to be pleased with each other; indeed, the children were delighted with their new playfellow. The parents missing the truants, became alarmed, and i olio wed on their track. They were not long in searching the spot, when, to their dismay, they beheld one child sitting on the bear's back and tbe other feeding him with fruit! They called quickly, when the youngsters ran to their friends, and Bruin,...

Precious mother, I saw her fall insensible to the earth ! a mother's fears overcame her. The coach drove at full speed—l burst open the door—sprung out regardless of danger ; and long, yes, very long, I bathed her cheeks, crying, " Mother, O, my dear mother!

4!) LITTLE MARION. Sip TITTLE Marion was scarcely three 3** years old, yet she displayed a though tfulnes* far beyond her years. A pious mother had carefully instructed her with regard to the Bimple truths of the Bible as far as her infant mind could comprehend them, and parts of many little hymns were perfectly committed. She sang them all day long in her sweet lisping voice, and her music rivalled the little song birds. But one sad day disease came and laid his heavy hand upon the household treasure. The bright blue eyes, which were the light of that humble dwelling, grew faded and lustreless. The light step which woke such gladsome echoes in the hearts that treasured her, was heard no more in the quiet house. A sorrowful shadow seemed to rest on all around. At last the lingering hope which the physician bad allowed the agonized parents to cherish was all extinguished, and they could on'y watch with bleeding hearts for the messenger of death to come. The little weary eyes lighted ...

HIS picture is not intended to represent Athens a« it is now, nor in all of its features when Paul visited it. It is rather designed to show it in the days of its greater splendour, in the time of Pericles, several centuries before Paul came thither preaching the gospel. The beautiful harbour that appears in the foreground to the left is the celebrated Piweus, which, in the days of Athens' prosperity, was a considerable city of itself, or rather an important part of Athens. Here Paul landed, if he came by sea, as he seems to have done. Running from this port to Athens proper, in a nortlieastei-n direction, are the "Long Walls," that connected the harbour with the city, live miles distant. They enclosed a street thickly settled throughout its whole length. But at the time Paul visited Athens these "Long Walls" were in ruins, and the P...

"I do not wish to hear any more complaints. Call Sarah to get Willie to sleep, and then take a pencil and paper and sit here by me." Kate hung her head guiltily as she heard the grave tones of her mother. She went slowly to do her bidding, wondering what she was to write. " Do you know, my daughter, how papa earns the money to give us this pleasant home, our clothes and food, and all the comforts which we enjoy?" " Yes mamma ; he is a book-keeper for Mr. Thompson." "As you seem to be discontented this afternoon, suppose you try to be a little book-keeper.
