' A stray sunbeam came in my room, One cold and cloudy day, t To glimmer gladly 'mid the gloom, Then quickly go away: X saw It iise upon the wall, And creep upon the floor; I saw it vanish, saw it fall—The gloom was as before. It came again, a cloud had passed From off the sun ' s bright disc_} It stayed a moment as at erst, A moment would it risk: Thus coming, going, time on time, I thought the dimness fled ; For mem ' ry took the brightness home, And left the gloom as dead. ' So oft for man a blessing Ilight/_J Is on life ' s sorrow cast, It stays a moment—sheds a light, That in the gloom is lost: . He feels that graver things outweigh This one of little worth; * Nor will he heed the fleeting ray That vanishes at birth. r Yet when it comes and comes again, In love, affection ' s tone; The heavy hands of fortune wane, And life has lighter grown:' Fov man may humble things disdain-Their p...

OUTLIVED SOUUOW. He had not outlived his sorrow, nor felt it slip from him as a, temporary burden, leaving him the same " man again. Do any of us! Grod forbid. It would be a poor-result of all our anguish and wrestling, if we were nothing but our old selves at the end of it—if we could return to the same blind loves, the same self-confident blame, the same light thoughts of human suffering, the same frivolous gossip over blighted human lives, the same feeble sense of that' unknown, toward which we have*sent forth irrepressible cries in our loneliness.: Let us rather be.thankful that our sorrow lives in us as an idestructible force, only changing its f orms as forces 4o,. and passing from pain into _s_^mpathl-—-the one poor word which includes all our best insight and our best love.

THE DEATH OF JUDGE JONES. Hon. _Joei, Jones died in this city on Friday, the 3d inst., at the age of 65 years. He was so well known and so highly esteemed as a distinguished civilian, and a noble Christian citizen, out readers in this city and State will be gratified at seeing in our paper the following extended notice of him, which we extract from Saturday's Press' Joel Jones was born at Coventry, in the State of Connecticut, and, at an early age, entered the Freshman class of Yale College, without pecuniary means, and sustained only by a mother's blessing and a hold resolve. During the whole collegiate course he taught school, attending some of the recitations of his class, but excused from others which interfered with the hours in which he himself was giving instruction. Nevertheless, he not only kept pace with his class, but distinguished himself by his proficiency. He received the Berkleian premium; found time to attend lectures on Anatomy and Physiology, and when his class g...

*EAC1, THE GOSPEL-WOED. the one grand word which the gospel proclaims in our world, is Peace. This is a very surprising word, and an infinitely gracious one. Think, first, how surprising it is. When we call to mind the relations between God and men, we cannot but be _amazed that such a word as peace _should ever have an utterance. The relations of God to men are those of righteous anger; for we read, "God is angry with the wicked every day. " The relations of men to God are those of determined enmity; for we read, " The carnal mind is enmity against God; it is not subject to the law of God, neither, indeed, can be." Now with such relations subsisting between the high and lofty One, whose name is Holy, _andjtnning dwellers upon earth is it not surprising _jlhat we should hear, on every wind of heaven, this singie, sublime word_, Peace, Peace? But, surprising as is the utterance of the word peace in such a. world as ours, surprise is deepened when considering whence this word ...

THIU GS IS I0WEE DEIAWAEE. On the border land of Kent and Sussex counties, we occupy a missionary field of great interest and of rising importance. It is the southernmost point in our Synod, and perhaps in oui church. At a distance of 100 miles from Philadelphia, it could, at no very remote period, be reached only by long stage rides and steamboat routes. Four or five years ago, the Delaware Bail Road penetrated the region, and now the branch of that main trunk to Milford has brought this latter place within five hours ' and a half ride of Philadelphia, by two daily lines each way, and at a very low rate of fare. Farms are becoming much more valuable. Lime is coming down in large quantities. Produce finds ready access to market at all seasons; perishable articles have acquired a new value; new families are immigrating, and new villages springing up with something of western freshness and enterprise MILFORD.

DE. EICE 01" SLAVEEY. It is one of the signs of the times that the prominent men and papers of the Old School party are defining their position on slavery. Their opinions do not exhibit remarkable harmony or unity. Indeed, they are marvellously geographical, and take a decided coloring and hue from the meridian where they are developed. We gave, last week j the clearly and pointedly expressed views of the North Carolin_^_iVes_^fenaji, who clain|ed,iwith no little assurance, to speak for the entire South Dr. Rice is a Kentuckian by birth _^ andjhas spent most of his life in the Slave States. He was called from Missouri to take charge of the Northwest, and check the tendencies to fanaticism in that region, and head off sueh radicals as Drs. M'Masters and Monfort. He occupies the triple relation of pastor, editor, and Professor of Theology. He is sustained and supported in these several responsible positions by M'Cormick's reaping machines, and in the fertile fields of the Northwest ...

We have esteemed it a duty as a Sabbath School Missionary Society, to contribute to our Church Extension Cominittee, from the conviction that if our own church is deserving of our love and attachment, certainly our New School Presbyterian brethren in the West have a direct claim upon usj botlt to he_^remembered in our prayers, arid to be substantially assisted from our missionary funds.

" _ANNALS OF THE P00E." DARKNESS AND LIGHT. Some years ago there came from Germany a man who was a bigoted Roman Catholic. He went to the interior of this State, (leaving his family in Germany,) and there in a hoarding house came across a German Bible. This, for a pastime, he would now and then read, until at last, out of all patience, he threw it aside as a fabrication of the wicked Luther. He left for a season , and on returning, once more took up the Bible and again read—next, it became a question between this Bible and his church—j? One or the other was certainly an imposition,"—but he read on until brought by it as I trust into the light and liberty of the Gospel. Presently his family followed him to this country, and his wife, with the aid of the Bible and of her husband, soon became hopefully converted. She is a woman of remarkable intelligence and is all alive to the " Free Salvation." The father and the two eldest daughters, girls of seventeen to twenty, were in the pra...

A Noble Testimony.—A postmaster sends us the name of a subscriber, and adds, " This name has doubtless long since been written in the Lamb's book of eternal life." ' To this the Trite Witness adds concerning another class of subscribers: Would that we had the same testimony from those of our subscribers who leave for parts unknown, indebted to us from two dollars and fifty cents and upwards. But alas, the postmaster writes us, they are gone—where, he cannot itell. Is it honest for a _persftn to leave for any part of this world, and not let the editor of his paper, or the postmaster, know where be has gone? We ask the question and leave it for others to answer.
