THE BOOT BLACK—A STOEY FOE BOYS. Let 'is then be up anil doing, With a heart for any fate; Still achieving, still pursuing, Learn to labor and to wait. Longfellow. About a hundred years ago, there lived in the city of Oxford, Sugland, a boy whose name was G-eorge. He was very poor, so much so that he was compelled to clean the boots of the students at the University to obtain money with which to buy the necessaries of life. His countenance was of no ordinary appearance. His eye was keen and piercingj his forehead noble and lofty; and every feature of his face was perfectly developed. By his easy and polite manners, his obliging disposition, and his warm and generous nature, he soon won the confidence and esteem of many of those upon whom he waited. The poverty of clothing served better to show the richness of a mind which needed only cultivation to make it one of the brightest in the whole country. The students of the University seeing such noble qualities ia the lowly and the...

YOUNG LADIES, EEAD. What a number of Idle, useless yoang women —they call themselves young ladies—parade our streets! "They toil not, neither do they spin, yet Solomon in all his gTory was not arrayed like one of them. " Do they ever look forward to the time when the real cares and responsibilities of life will clnster around them? Ha?e they made, or are they making any preparation for the onerous duties which will assuredly fall to their lot-—duties to society, the world and God? They lounge or sleep away their time in the morning. They, never take hold of the drudgery, the repulsive toil, which each son and daughter of Adam should perform in this world. They know nothing of domestic duties. They have no habits of industry, no taste for the useful, no skill in any really useful art. They are in the streets, not in the performance of their duty, or for the acquisition of health, but to see and. be seen. They expect thus to pick up a husband who will promise to be as indulgent ...

-"MYSELF WILL SEE ME," Once, in a Sabbath School, a very little girl repeated the twenty-third Psalm very well, and so pleased a visitor who was , her, that he kindly took a shilling from his pocket, and said, " This is for your little lesson, my child."

You understand, I won't be with you to see you; but there is One who will see you, and will find out at once if you break the Sabbath day." The child was silent, but kept looking up' in the speaker's face with a, dark, thoughtful eye. " Who will see you?" he asked, after a pause. "Myself will see me" said the child in an instant, wit...

GOOD ADVICE. We have received a communication, _conwmiug _good advice to the effect-do not make your own will, or adopt one of the printed forms. To pursue either course would be most dangerous. We cannot better illustrate our views than by a quotation from Lord St. Leonard's valuable and interesting new work, entitled "A Hand book on Property Law," in which he says:—I am unwilling to give you any instructions for making your will without the assistance of your professional adviser; and I would particularly warn you against the use of printed forms, which have misled many men. They are as dangerous as the country schoolmaster or the vestry clerk. It is quite _shockiog to reflect upon the litigation which has been occasioned by men making their own mils, or employing incompetent persons to do so. lo save a small amount in their life-time, men leave behind them a will which it may cost hundreds to have expounded by the Courts before the various claimants will desist from litigatio...

_THEILLIim INCIDENT. In a lecture recently delivered by " Grace Greenwood," at Boston, on " Heroism," she referred to an incident that took place at the burning of a steamer on one of the western lakes. Among the few passengers whose courage and presence of mind rose superior to the.perils and horrors of the night was a mother, who succeeded in saving her two children by means of a floating settee. While they were in the water the mother saw a man swimming toward the settee, and, as he was about to grasp it, she cried: "Don't take it away from my poor little children I" The man made.no answer, yetthe appeal struck home; for, by the light of the flaming vessel, she could see that his face was convulsed by the struggle between the mighty primal instinct of nature and something better and holier. It was but for a moment. He threw up his hands with a groan of renunciation, flung himself over backward, and went down.

For the American Preshyterian. THE NEW BIRTH. It belongs not to the kingdom of Satan but to the kingdom of, God. The children of men are divided between these kingdoms. Those who are in allegiance ,to the former need not be born again; but those who are subjects of the kingdom o_£ Gcod are born again. What is this new birth ? The first, or physical birth, is w,hen the material world opens 4o our Vjision_; the second birth is when the inner eye, by spiritual change, beholds the heavenly world. The first birth relates to the . things of earth;_, the second i;o the things otteavenr ' Tlrer1atter is called ' a change of heart , a regeneration and renewing of the soul. But the nature of the change _^ _wilj be better understood by considering it intrinsically. By this change of heart a man becomes a Christian. No man becomes a Christian against his will. Hence, this birth is voluntary. None can be truly the Lor/d ' s chosen, except as they are willing to bo such. No one enters heave...
