Sabbath Bells. Said Daniel Webster: "I once defended a man charged with the awful crime of murder. At the conclusion of the trial I asked him what could induce him to-stuin—his hands in the blood of a fellow-being. Turning his blood-shot eyes fully upon me, he answered in a voice of despair, 'Mr. Webster in my youth, I spent the holy Sabbath in evil amusements, instead of frequenting the bouse of prayer and praise,' Could we go back to the early years of all hardened criminals, I believe, firmly believe, that the first departure from the path of morality was, when they abandoned the Sabbath-school, and their subsequent crimes might thus be traced back to the neglect of youthful religious instruction. "Many years ago I spent a Sabbath with Thomas Jefferson, at his residence in. Virginia. It was in the month of June, aud the weather was delightful. I remarked, 'How very sweetly sounds that Sabbath bell!'—That distinguished statesman for a moment seemed lost iu thought aud then rep...

But like the waters of Siloah, they "go Softly." You must listen to catch the silver tones of the Uttle^riil as it glides from its mountain home; you may not witness its silent march through the green vale, bat its course will be seen in the fresh verdure and the opening flowers; its presence will be known by the forms of life and beauty that gather around it. It is ever thus with the pure. You may not hear the " still small voice" or heed the silent aspiration; but there is a moral influence and a holy power which you will feel. The wilderness is made to smile, flowers of new life and beauty spring up and flourish, while an invisible presence breathes immortal fragrance through the spiritual atmosphere.

MubK.—The odor of inusk is wonderfully enduring. When Justinian, in 1)38, rebuilt what is now the mosque of St. Sophia, the mortar was charged with musk, and to this very day the atmosphere is filled with the odor. More than a thousand" of years! And yet the fragrance of noble deeds laBts longer still. The words Kuth. said on that distant day—"where thou goest, I will go,"—will be remembered when the perfumed mortar of St. Joseph is scentless sand. George the First, on a journey to. Hanover, stopped at a village in Holland, and while the horses were getting.ready, he asked for two or three eggs, which were brought him, and was charged two- hundred florins. 'How is thatj" said the majesty, 'eggs must be very scarce in this place/ . 'Pardon me,' said the host, 'eggs arc plenty enough, but kings are scarce' The king smiled, and ordered the money to be paid. , , ,
