TO OLE ABEL AND LITTLE EDWAED. Were any of you bora in New England, in the good o .ld catechising, school-going, orderly times? If you were, you must remember my uncle Abel, the most perpendicular, upright, downright, good man that ever labored six days and rested on the Sabbath. You remember his hard, weather-beaten countenance , where every line secuied to be drawn with a pen of iron and the .point of a diamond; his considerate gray eyes that moved over the objects as if it were not best to be in a hurry about seeing; the circumspect opening and shutting of his mouth; his down-sitting and uprising,—all of which appeared to be performed with a conviction aforethought: in short, the whole ordering of his life and conversation, which was according to the tenor of the military order, "to the right about face—forward—march I"" Now, if you have supposed from all this triangularism of exterior that this good man har d nothing kindly within, you are much mistaken.— You often find th...

From the German for the American Presbyterian. ABOUT THE MOUTHS—JANUAEY. FOR YEBY YOUNG CHILDREN. . As little Adolphus awoke one morning it shone all white through the windows. He quickly sprang from his little bed to see what, it was out out of _doors that spread such a white light all around. But when lie reaohed the window he clapped his little hands with delight, ran into the sitting room and cried oat: " Father, Mother!—Snow, snow I only see how much snow! The trees and hedges are almost covered up, and the road is not any where to be seen. Oh I oh! but where did so much snow come from in the night?" His father smiled and said, "January has shaken it out of the clouds." " January/' said Adolphus " who is he?" "One of the 12 months in which the year is divided," said the father, instructing his little son. " Do you still know," he continued " what that little wish was which you wished me a few days ago ?" '' Yes, indeed," cried Adolphus pleasantly, "it is A little wish I...

CHBISTIAU HAPPY HOMES. It requires not the eye of the close semtraizer to discern that the moral world needs a thorough reformation. Even the glance of a causual observer will select such an amount of evil as makes the sensitive heart shrink, and cry.out for" a' source of purification. No wonder then, that he who scans the world in all its phases, and obtains a full view of the unnumbered vices and sins that mar its every feature, should exclaim in agony of spirit, " What power is sufficient to change the entire aspect from darkness to light, to diffuse an atmosphere of purity in place of. pollution?" And what, indeed, is sufficient to accomplish, so mighty a work? Holies an agent than the R _e ligion of Jesus can ever prove effectual. And how shall this agent best succeed in the momentous effort ? By first making HAPPY HOMES, and then from their hearth stones, as stand-points, its advances are to be urged in every direction. By the Pulpit and Press, by all the means in our po...

YOUE MISSION. BY E. M. H. If you cannot on the ocean Sail among the swiftest fleet, Rocking on the highest billows, Laughing at the storms you meet—Tou can stand among the sailors, Anchored yet within the bay: Tou can lend a hand to help them, When they launch their boats away, If you are too weak to journey Up the mountains steep and high, You can stand within the valley While the multitudes go by; You can chant in happy measures, As they slowly pass along; Though they may forget the singer, They will not forget the song. If you have not gold and silver Brer ready at command; If you cannot toward the neeedy, Reach an ever open hand; You can visit the afflicted, O'er the erring you can weep, You can be a true disciple Sitting at the Saviour' s feet. If you cannot in the conflict, Prove yourself a soldier true; ' ¦ If where the fire and smoke are thickest There' s no work for you to do j When the battle-field is silent You can go with careful tread, You can bear away the wounde...

WINTEE _BTTLES. Never go to bed with cold or damp feet. In going into a colder air, keep the mouth resolutely dosed, that then, by compelling the air to pass cireuitously through the nose and head, it may become warmed before it reaches the lungs, and thus prevent those shocks and sudden chills which frequently end in pleurisy, pneumonia, and other serious forms of disease. Never sleep with the head in the. draft of an open door or window. Let more cover be oh the lower limbs than on the body. Have an extra covering within easy reach in case of a sudden and great change of weather during the night. Never stand still a moment out of doors, especially at street corners after having * walked even a short distance. Never put on a new boot or shoe in beginning a journey. . Never wear India rubbers in cold dry weather. If compelled to face a bitter cold wind, throw a silk handkerchief over the face; its agency is wonderful in modifying the; cold; Those who are easily chilled on goin...

LITTLE THINGS. Little things—ay, little things, Make up the sum of life; A word, a look, a single tone, May lead to calm, or strife. A word may part the dearest friends-One little, unkind word, While in some light, unguarded hour, The heart with anger stirred. A look will sometimes send a pang Of anguish 1o the heart; A tone will often cause the tear In sorrow's eye to start. One little act of kindness done-One little soft word spoken—Hath power to wake a thrill of joy, E'en in a heart that's broken. Then let us watch these " little things," And so respect each other, That not a word, or look, or tone, ? May wound a friend or brother. • • Little Pilgrim
