Remarkable Movement Among the Fishing Villages of _Banffshire, _ScotlaM.—To the astonishment of the fishing crews who returned to Portossie, after a few days' absence at sea, the entire place w _" as under the deepest excitement. A kind of rude hall was found crammed jjwith people, and prayers and praise, and groans and sighs, were to be heard ascending day and night. No clerical agency has been at the head of this movement. A few young men of the village had been attending a reli gious meeting at Findocbty, two miles distant, and returned so much affected that their employer shut up his shop, and with them commenced a revival crusade. The usual physical phenomena are exhibited. Conviction is universal and conversions seem to be numerous. In Findochty, the work is even more decided. There are about 500 people, purely seafaring, all en gaged in religious exercises. I have spoken to common fishermen who have for nearly three days and three nights been praying and _sinking, and exh...

A TOJT TO WISTMINSTER ABBEY, A _MtfTlR TO A CHILD. London. Yesterday we visited Westminster Abbey. Tie Abbey was completed by Sir Christopher Wren, but commenced long before his time. The Stone was originally of a light buff color, but the atmosphere and smoke of the city have so affected it that it has become very gray—almost black. I would like to take you into the centre of this building, and watch for a moment to see how _you WOttld open your eyes, and almost hold your breath, as yott gazed at the lofty arches and vaulted roof, so high that you seem almost to be looking into the sky. Have you never, when walking through a forest in lilie noon of a summer's day, as you gazed at the grand monarchs of the wood, stretching their giant limbs toward the sky, and listened to the suppressed murmurs of thousands of insects and chirping of birds, now* resting from their morning carol, felt a strange awe creeping over you, as though you must tread lightly where God in his works was bo ...

CHILDBEN'S _CONFIDENCE, The annexed article (copied from Life Illustrated) we commend to the perusal of parents. It contains good practical advice; "Do you want to learn how to make the children love you? Do you want the key that will unlock the innermost,recesses of their natures? Then sympathize with_.them always. Never allow yourself to ridicule any of their little secrets. Never say,' Oh, pshaw!' when they come to show you a new kite or marvellous top, and 'I can't be troubled,' when the hard knot won't be untied, and two and two obstinately refuse to make four on their little slates. Kites and knots are only the precursors of older thoughts and deeper trials which the parents may one day plead in vain to share! Don't laugh at any of a child's ideas, however-odd or absurd they may seem to you; let them find your sympathy ready in all their wonderments and aspirations. Is there any man so wise in his own conceit as to have forgotten that there was a time once when he, also, was...

A flat garde%or one with steep descent, is not desirable. In most cases_|however, there can be no choice about the situation. The soil should be deep, neither heavy noir light, and moderately rich. If wet , it should by-all means be well drained. The walks should be formed of such materials as will always afford dry walking. At the bottom should be six inches of small stones, oyster or clam shells, broken bricks or similar substances, covered with several inches of good clean gravel. They should be six feet wide for. main walk' s, and three or four feet for, the remainder. If the garden be very small, the walks should all be straight, and the arrangement formal; if on a larger scale, they should be winding, and a more natural and easy design adopted.
