Beautiful Mirage.—Not long ago the attention of the residents of Buffalo was attracted towards the lake. The afternoon was hazy, and through the vapory medium a very beautiful mirage was seen. One of the local papers says:—"The Canadian and Chatauque shores, on either side of the bay, bathed in the soft dimness of the air, were lifted up and blended with the sky, so-as to look like some far-off-lajry land. At intervals, against the hills, there _ifras a shimmer of vertical rays, which gave fche_^_ppearance of. a bold columnar front to the land, like the Giant's Causeway of Ireland. Out upon the sea line some dozen sail of vessels were ._setting in toward the harbor. Some of these/^rfeich were within five or six miles, assumed gigantic proportions, and could scarcely be distinguished from huge, shapeless masses of cloud.. ' Two, whose hulls were deep below the horizon_^, carried, sheer above them, and balanced airily upon the tip of their top-gallants, inverted duplicates of themse...

BID _JISXTS _SING1 At a gathering of children oh Christmas day, a gentleman present related a very interesting incident: A little girl, but three years of age, Was very curious to know why Christmas greens were so much used, and what they were intended to signify. So Mr* Ii. told her the story of the babe of Bethlehem—of - the child whose name was Jesus. The little questioner was just beginning to give voice to the music that was in her heart; and after Mr. L. had concluded the narrative, she looked up it i his face,and asked, "Bid Jesus sing?" Who had; J_^er thought of that ? If you will look at Matthew, twenty-sixth chapter and thirtieth verse, you will there find almost conclusive proof that Jesus sang with his diciples. Is not that encouragement for us to sing—not with the understanding only, but with the heart also? Sabbath-school Gazette.

INFLUENCE OF EGYPTIAlf ARCHAEOIOGY OH" BIBLE STtMES. The illustration; of details of Biblical thistory which the Egyptian monuments afford, is a subject of great importancefrom its bearing upon the accuracy_^ of the: Bible. It has been very much neglected, in consequence of the extravagant expectations of many, who, in the earjy days; of Egyptian _archasology, looked for an exact account of Israel in Egypt from the monuments. They never perceived, what is clear enough, though few are willing to admit it, that we have no; consecutive chain of historical monuments stretching through many centuries. In the remotest past there is the group of tombs around the greatest pyratriids of Memphis, which tell us, in their sculptures and inscriptions, of the life of the Egyptians of that time, about four thousand years ago. This group may extend over two centuries. Then there is a great blank, with here and there a doubtful and shifting steppingrStQne in a dark stream of historickl'oblivio...

offered _BEGLIffE OF QUAKERISM- Two years ago, a prize was by an _Jilngligfli gentleman, for_^the best essay on the cause of the decline of the Society of ¦ Friends. Of1 the essays presented, there-were two, which the umpires recommended should be put on an equal footing as to compensation. One of these, by " Mr. J. Kowritree, views the question from a practical, the _others by Mr. ThonSas Hancock, from - an eccle ' _siastiijai stand-point. From the two we will take some of the more prominent points_. First, as to the facts: "Iri 1690, after forty years of in_"cessant persecution, it could point to anorganized body of sixty or seventy thousand- adherents in Great Britain and Irelaridyi» flourishing congregations in,other parte of Europe, and to more than one great colony it had founded in the Western World." Spon comes a change. "Jhe Society of Friends attained its numerical meridian in this island about the year 1680, and in the next one hundred and twenty years its decline w...

_BRIBERY IB" HIGH STATION: The shameless corruption becoming so common in public life, portends a.speed y overthrow of our political system, unless it can be checked by an elevation of moral sentiment in the entire community, Even those who have, railed most against clerical meddling with politics , will be ready to implore their influence in eradicating this fatal vice.

Both- ejiureties lead their praise by sweettoned organs, * an instrument which.has become a necessary auxiliary to the _German's devotion, which stimulates and directs his song. The remark has often been made that the Germans are the most religious nation in. the world. With all their mischievous infidelities/ this is not without truth.. There ia a genial unctidii in the services of a pious German congregation which one seldom finds elsewhere. But while grace abounds among the Evangelical Germans here, iniquity does much more abound among a l...

THE IKSPIEATION (_M TEE BIBtE. When De Tocqueville was here, he asked to see a Sabbath-school. He was struck: with seeing, a Bible in . the hands of almost every child. "Is this common ? " said he to his friend. " What a jtriighty ' influence it must have upon the nation." Think of the unnumbered Sabbath-school pupils in all Christian lands, each with a book in their hands. More str iking still is the thought of ail Christians in all lands, sitting each in their private room, every morning before they go into the worWr to read this one book. What must the book be, to furnish the minds and hearts of spiritual people with exhaustless supplies of thought and emotion? Not;so Shakspeare_; nor:even Bunyan_^ copying_, so closely, from the Bible, can fill such a place. " I)o not read Bunyan to me any more," said a distinguished missionary lady, near her end, to her husband; "Buriyan tires _mej but I ean hear you read the Bible without fatigue."
