<f »t»ilf &iuU. "THOU GOD 8EE8T H." God can see me every day_. When-I work and when I plays When I read and when I talk, When I ran and when I walk,-When I eat an4 when I drink, . When I sit and only think 5 When I laugh and when I cry, God is ever watching nigh_. When I'm quiet, when I'm rude,, When I'm naughty, when I'm good 5 When I'm happy, when I'm sad, When I'm sorry, when I'm glad; When I pluck the scented rose, That in my neat garden grows; When I crush the tiny fly, God is watching from the sky. When the sun gives heat and light, When the stars are twinkling bright, When the moon shines on my bed, God still watches o'er my head; Night or day, at church or fair, God is ever, ever near, Marking all I do or sav, Pointing to the happy way. THE VOICELESS. BY OLIVER WENDELL HOLMES. We count the broken lyres that rest Where the sweet wailing singers slumber, But o'er their silent sister's breast The wild flowers who will stoop to number?

RAIN IN EGYPT It has long been a prevalent opinion that it never or rarely rains in Egypt. Formerly, _iT was said that there was no rain at all ; aud several wet days having been observed of late years, they were supposed to have been caused by a change of climate, produced, it was imagined, by some extensive plantations in the valley of the Nile. M. Jomard, however, shows, by documentary evidence, that all these opinions of no rain and change of climate are erroneous. Rain , and heavy rains, with thunder and lightning, though rare visitors, are not strangers in Egypt. Sir Archibald Alison, " in his history of Europe, writes as follows:—" It never rains in Egypt; centuries may elapse without more than a shower of drizzling mist moistening the surface of the soil. It is said that it has not rained in Egypt for 1700 years." A correspondent of the Times writes from Alexandria, October SI, 1856, as follows:—" Englishmen express their astonishment at the heavy rains we have lately ...

SUPERSTITIONS IN CHILDHOOD An old writer says:— "Superstition is the greatest burden in tbe world;" of the truth of .which remark many persons are sensible from their earliest childhood. Indeed, superstition is the bugbear of the nursery; whereas the great aim should be to divest children of this pernicious fear. "If too great excitability and power of imagination be observed in childhood, much may be done by a sound discipline to retain it. Let the child be protected from the _sheetod spectres of servants, and the boy from the shadows and rattling curtains and palls of romance writers. Let his first ideas of the Almighty bo those1 of a Grod of Mercy, wfco gives him every blessing—who offers himself to ohildhood under the most benign of characters, as taking little children in his arms and putting his hands upon them. Lot him be taught to ' see God in storms and hear him in the wind,' not as the poor Indian, but by having his mind tutored to trace the regular course of God's p...

WHY DO CHILDE1N DIE? The reason why children die, says Hall's Journal of H_«.aitn, is because they are not taken care of. From the day of birth they are stuffed with fdod, choked with physio, sloshed with water, suffocated in hot rOonis, steamed in bedclothes. So much for in-doors. When permitted to breathe a breath of pure air once a week in suniiner, find oface _Ot _tfwice during the coldest months, only the nose is permitted to peer into daylight. A little later they are sent out with no clothes at all, as to the parts, wbidh most need p _rotection. ,Bare legs, bare arms, bare necks, girtud middles, with an inverted umbrella to collect the air and chill the other parts of the body. A stout strong, man goes out on a cold day with gloves and overcoat, woollen stockings and thick double soled boots, with toork between and rubbers, over.

Singular Time for a marriage—A loving conple in Memphis, Tennessee, were last week married under the following singular circumstances:—They were taking a carriage ride in one of the principal streets in that city, when they chanced to meet a Judge Hill, who was riding leisurely along upon a favorite donkey. They at once accosted him, and requested him to unite them in.sthe holy bonds of wedlock. He acceded to the proposition, and without dismounting, performed the ceremony, making the occupants of the vehicle one,'and having for witnesses the mule and two ot three persons who were passing at the time. ¦>- »??

The Priests and the French Army.—An order has been issued, it is stated in an English paper, by the French Minister of War, forbidding soldiers in garrison at Paris, or any other town in France, from attending worship-in parochial or conventual churches, and intimating' that, for the future, provision would everywhere be made within the barracks for the regular, _celebration of mass. The origin of -this regulatioff is eaid to be the efforts on the part of the priests to influence " the minds of the soldiers in favor of the pope.

Rain purifies the air by, absorbing, as it falls, the carbonic acid and ammonia which is always floating in the air. Snow absorbs a still larger quantityof these impurities, hence the peculiar purity of the air after a snow-storm. When cakes are mixed with snow and baked, these gases are expanded by heat and form the little cells in the dough which make the _^ 'cakes light. They are wholesome-in the- stomacn though injurious in the lungs. ' ¦

For the American Presbyterian MST.0ES AND J_*_EOBAtlfl_^BS. The extracts in this paper of the 29th ult., taken from the March No, of the Atlantic Monthly, afford suggestions which I wish, to present. The "religious want" of every small cotirniunity is, at least, a pastor. The qualifications for an* excellent pastor may be _possessed by one who cannot become even a preacher of mediocrity. In this affluent age of religious reading of every description, from the Sabbath School library to instructions of every kind._ininewspapers, the pastoral duty of ministers in charge of a congregation is comparatively more important than pulpit duties. In. ' the early period of disseminating the truths of Christianity ,_this was not so. Oral instruction Fas then mainly depended on, and the only means by which the masses could have access to the truths of philosophy or religion; hence the saying of St. Paul— " How shall they hear without a Dieacher?" The ear was the only avenue through which ...

It will attract attention, and open a new vein of thought and speculation. We extract below the two chapters on the " Nervous System," and " _Phvsiology of the Spirit/' THE NERVOUS SYSTEM. - The light _whidh Scripture sheds on the natural history of the humun race may be,still further increased by an examination of the structure of the human body. It is' a well-established doctrine of Scripture, that the'body isanimated'by an intelligent and immortal tspirit, _> that feels and acts by means of its material mechanism, without being itself material. . We _^ also learn from Scripture, that at death the spirit is, not destroyed with the body, but only Separated from it, arid is capable of maintaining an independent existence; so that in its disembodied state it _possesses ameasure of conscious...

DB_^STOC_^Oir. Our readers will be" _interested in the following graphic accounts of Mr. Stockton's preaching to Congressmen: " ; / - r ¦ ' •• The House hall was crowded yesterday with a very large audience, who came out jto hear a sermon from the new House chaplain, Rev. Thomas H. Stockton. His discourse was a very interesting and eloquent one. Twenty-five years ago Mr. Stockton was chaplain to the Senate, and his •.illusions to the prominent Congressmen of that day were full of pathos. The chaplain was himself a picture—tall, slim, and with long and thick hair of snowy whiteness falling down upon his shoulders, he brought to mind the patriarchs of the Old Testament. He has been very ill of late, and was too weak to stand j so he sat while _deliver ing his sermon; yet, in spite of this fact, it was one of the most touching, eloquent and impressive sermons I ever heard. A remarkable feature of it was its bold defence of " the higher law."—liaising his voice to its shrillest tones,...

mwmmwtnu For the American Presbyterian. THE CLAIMS OP KAHSAS. The opening of every new territory imposes a high responsibility upon the Church, and one she should be prepared promptly and fully to meet. On the constant expansion of our population—in the filling up of the almost innumerable boundaries of out country's area, it is important, above all things, that the _church, with her ministry, and ordinances, and especially with her living piety burning on her altars, should go with the people. If the love of gain, or motives of. ambition, or any other motives, prove sufficiently influential to induce men to leave their homes, and seek to improve their condition in new settlements, the love of Christ in the hearts of God's people should be HO less operative. Here, then, is a duty devolving upon the'whole church—ta go with the people,—whether to the fields of commerce, or to the fields of agriculture, or to the shops of manufacture. The church must not be behind, but with the...
