Its soul had been fashioned in heaven by immortal hands.— When first its tiny heart began to beat, angels placed the soul there, ond bade it " God spued," on ita earthly career. With many blessing* they left it then to encounter earthly trials, and become purified by sorrow and fit for heaven. It waa a lovely aoul,—they bad formed it nil beautiful and good : celestial music was around when it waa created, and perfect harmony was in its every feature.

The Sabbath.—The growing disregard of the Sahbith day must he obvious even to the unreflecting. It cannot be denied lhat, with a large portion of the populntion ol Boston, this consecrated lime is made a holy day— n day of recreation aud amusement.

Communicated for the Chronicle. SCHOOLS OF CAMBRIDGE. Mb. Epitor,—l see by tbe report of tbe doings of tho Common Council, ot their meeting on the tHI. inst, that this Board is disposed to recede from the position it had previously taken iv relation to the achools. 1 am very glad lhat the members of the board have begun to suipcct that this position was a falsii one.

I sny hastily, for il is understood thut but one evening was devoted to tho consideration of a matter involving nothing loss than a total revolution of our school system inconsifUrately, for I cannot but believe that men of judgment, upon due deliberation, would have come to tho conclusion ibnt tbe report recommended a usurpation of power, never intended by tbe charter lo be given to the City Council.
