%£iixtlimti*4 ST. PETERSp_#RG. The walls of the city are built of solid red granite blocks, some of them ten feet in length, and four in thickness. They are mounted with the _largest cannon and bombs. Between them and the waterline, are mounds and dykes. These are equally guarded. There is no approach to the shore but by small boats, and scarcely for them, on account of rocks sunk fo? _hundreds dlf rods sea-ward beyond low-water ma_|k: an_^ _tfig onl y entrance into the harbor is narrow and defended on all sides. It would be difficult for a fleet to pass unscathed sofar up the Baltic as the mouth oJf the_> jGhilfij; but it would need to be made of solid iron, successfully to meet its reception within a mile of Cronstadt. Acres of ground within the walls are covered w.i_^h the heaviest caDnon and stacks of balls.

A RAINY SABBATH. I don't know who lijtes a rainy Sabbath. I am pure11 _d on'tj—especially if it Is too rainy to go to church. But _sometimes a storm does come on that holy day, and women and children are obliged to stay in-doors on _account of it. This was the case ndt many weeeks ago in a certain small town where lived Mrs. (_Granger and her two children _^ Annie and May. The rain was _pouring f&ft when they rose, and there was no _appearance of pleasant weather for the day. 'tbU was a great disappointment to May; for she was expecting to attend the Sabbath-school for the first time in her short life that morning. She could scarcely keep back her tears when her mother took her on her lap, and said, " My little girl cannot go out in this rain. She must repeat her verses to mamma, instead of Miss B." It was nearly a minute before she could speak, but, when she did, she said her little hymn without missing a word. This was it: " See, the kind Shepherd, Jesus, stands, Wit...

I DON'T SEE WHY I know a little ' girl who has a very pleasant home, and the very kindest of parents, and who is yet often discontented' and unhappy. She pouts her lips, and throws her arms about, and sulks, and stamps with her feet, and makes a strange noise in her throat, between a growl and a cry. It is not because she has not enough to eat of good, wholesome food; nor because she has not time to play, and playthings in abundance, and _brothers to play with her. She is pot blind5 , nor lassie, nor deformed in any way_^ but has health, tod strength, and everything which any little giri could wish, to make her happy in this world, _gxoept a good heart. ¦ ¦ What was it that made her fretful?

SFBBGEON A CHILD OSPBAYEB. The following incident, pertaining to Mr. Spurgeoa's _childhood is / related in the life of Richard Knill, just published, and will be read with interest by the admirers of the London preacher. It is one of the curious coincidences which seem almost to include the germs of prophecy: • ' ¦ : ¦ •; ¦ .;_'¦: ¦¦ :: ¦ ¦ : ' During his residence at Wotten-under-Edge, he visited the Rev. James Spurgeon, the minister of an ancient chapel of Dr. Watts, at Stambourne, Essex; and walking in the garden with his host's grandson, then about ten years old, he felt, he afterward said, a prayerful concern for the intelligent and inquiring boy, sat with him under the yew4rees, put his hands on his head, and prayed for himj telling him at the close that "he believed he wdtild love Jesus Christ, ap4 preach his (J _._OSjWl in the largest chapel in the world." "When this curious prediction obtained something like a fulfilment in the young preacher of the Surrey Music Hall,...

THI BEST I am dreaming of the blessings Just beyond the bounds of time,v Of the pearly-gated city, O'er whose wall no evils climb; Where the Father folds his children Safely to his loving breast, 'Where the wicked cease from troubling, ¦ _Atid the Weary are at rest."

HUMILITY. For the American Presbyterian Soft is the music that would charm forever; The flower of sweetest smell is shy and lowly. Wordsworth. The poet in these lines has expressed an extremely beautiful sentiment. He has taught us oqe mode of drawing a sublime mpral truth from nature. But humility, like a perfume, which exposed to the light and atmosphere, soon de""parteth, ensures not long the gaze of many eyes , or exposure to remark and flattery. It is almost,too ethereal for mortal touch. ~ its native spot Jtpp * &ars to be that* of _^he modest flow,er,_t%r away_^from tu.1-gar vision. No grace morebecomes the Christian than-humiUty. Por he, taught by the Divine Spirit to _estimate things atj.thep _tjrue rvalue,,.decides quite accurately upon his owa position in relatipu to God and his fellow-men.
