A Beantifnl Thought. How few nten seem to have formed a conception of the original dignity • of their nature or the exalted design of creation, regarding themselves as the only creatures of time, endowed merely wilh the animal passions, and intellectual faculties; their projects, aims, and expectations, are circumscribed by. the narrow outlines of human life.—¦ They forgot that instability and decay are written with a sunbeam, upon all earthly objects—that this world with all ils pageantry and pomp and power, is crumbling to the dust—that ihe present hie .is scarcely deserving of a thought, excepting as it forms the introduction of another, and that he alone acts a prudent or rational part, who frames his plan with a direct, reference tojlhal future and endless slate of being. Sip has so blinded the understanding and perverted the will, and debased the affections, that men never fail to invest some temporal good with fancied perfection, and idly imagine that the attainment o...

. The Unbeliever. I pity the unbeliever—one who can gaze upon the,grandeur, the glory and the beauty of the natural universe, and behold not. the touch'of His finger, who is over, and with and above all—from ray very heart I do coqintisserate his condition. The unbeliever, one whose intellect the light of reason never penetrated—who dan gaze upon the sun, moon and stars, and upon the unfading and imperishable sky, spread out so magnificently above him, and say all this is the work of chance. The heart of such a being is a dull and cheerless void. In him, mind—the God like gift of intellect, is debased, destroyed; all is dark—a cheerless chaotic labyrinth, rayless, cheerless, hopeless. No gleam of light from' heaven penetrates the blackness of the horrible delusion—no voice from the Eternal bids the desponding heart rejoice. No fancied tones from the hearts of seraphim amuse the dull spirit of his lethargy or allay the consuming fire of the. brain. The wreck of mind is utterl...

While at dinner her noticed the young.ladies and their dress, and at the same time took particular notice of the-servant maid's dress who waited at the table, which was very, plain. " I cannot," said be, "butadmire thedress of your.servant; I think I/have never seen a young woman so neatly dressed ; of all thatl have seen for some time, I admire it the most."

Parents Bead and Think. We hafte often heard the remark, "I can't read, English myself, so it's no use for me to take an English newspaper."

You send your children to school—you wisjr them taught to, read and write in order that they may be prepared for'zbusiness of some kind in after life jiwell, in school they learn to read. and/write, but when they return home front school, the book is left behind, and the reading anif.writing no more thought of until the return of school again ; and thus it is from week to week, and from year to year, where no/newspaper meets the eye.— Now, we would ask those who do nof take/tne paper, whether this is1 not the fact!

"The Indians have attacked Mr. Stuart's house, burntit, and carried his family into captivity," were the first words of a breathless woodsman, as he rustted into the block house of a village iitjthe western part of New York, during one of: the early border wars.— " Up, up—ra dozen men should have been or) the trail two days ago.'' ; "God help us!" said one of the group, a bold frank forester; and with a face whiter than ashes/ he leaned against the wall, gasping for breath.— Every eye was turned on him with sympathy, for he and Mr. Stuart's only daughter, a lovelyg'irl of seventeen, were to be married in a few days. The bereaved father was universally respected. He was a man of great be nevolence of heart, and of some property, and resided on a mill seat he owned, about two miles from the village. His family consisted of his eldest daughter and three widowed children. He had been from home, so the rumor said, when his hou...

- . /" ¦ , ¦ - - - \ TheyYonng Kan's Leisure. ; Young man! after the duties of the day are' over, how do you spend yeur evenings?' When business is dull, and leaves at your disposal many unoccupied hours; what disposition do you make of them ? I have known, and you know, many young men, who, if they devoted to any scientific, or literary, or professional pursuits, the time they spend in games of chance and lounging in bed, and in idle company, might rise to any eminence.
