I WILL BE GOOD TO-DAT «I will be good, dear mother," . I heard a sweet child _sayi ««J will be good, now watch me} I will be good all day." She lifted up her bright young eyes, With a soft and pleasing smile: Then a mother's kiss was on her lips, So free and pure from guile. And when the night came, that little one, In kneeling down to prayv Said, in a soft and _whispering tone, " Have I been good to-day 1 " Oh, many, many bitter tears 'T would save us, did we say, Like that dear child, with earnest hearts, «I will be good to-day.

CHRIST AWTJ PYTHAGORAS There is one feature in the character of Christ, that this contrast, as it becomes, brings out most beautifully. It is the simplicity of the aim of Ms . life. With all the treasures of knowledge, such as Pythagoras was striving after, ready to be expressed; perfectly competent to proclaim all about the stars, and the rocks, Christ complicates his doctrine with no such scientific instruction. With all the treasures of wisdom, such as Solon and Montesquieu longed and labored for, about the best civil organizations for human society, Christ never _conTOunded what tie:-badsfco teach with political disquisitions or apophthegms. He has no.concealed doctrines; he assumes no peculiar dress nor manner of speech. He withdraws himself from no class of men; he has a word for all, for his heart is full of tenderness for all. He is a character clear as crystal; transparent as the water from the mountain-side, which he so aptly maria £ha _omhiom nf Ilia _trntfi A con...

PAST0EA1 VISITATION. ' That frequent pastoral and social visitations of his " flock, by the minister, give him great power to do them good, is a fact that cannot have escaped the notice of the most careless observer. That many pastors, through negligence, . or inertness, or distaste' for mingling with the masses, do fall far below the Teasoriable demands of their people in this regard, m . ust be admitted. They fail to gain the hold upon the confidence and affeetions of their people, which a frequent intercourse with them, and interchange of .sentiments and feelings _wJLth them has a tendency to produce. They " remain ignorant of their peculiar trials and difficulties, and of the erroneous views into which they have fallen, and consequently there must be in their pulpit ministration a great want of adaptation to the peculiar spiritual condition of their hearers. Bat whilst all this' is freely admitted; it is just as true that upon no point are the demands of Christian people u...

THE WILD XABEJf BOY, Many years ago, a laay was seated, reading, in. the verandah of her Burmese house, when suddenly she was startled by seeing a little wild looking boy standing before her_^ and asking, with_, great eagerness, " Does Jesus Christ live here?" He appeared about twelve years old. His coarse black hair, matted with dirt, bristled up in every direction, like the quills of a porcupine; and the only covering about Ms person was a ragged cloth of cotton: ^*Does Jesus Christ live here?" he again, asked, as he was crouched at the lady'« feet. " What dp you want of Jesus Christ?" inquired the lady. " I want to see him: I want to confess to! him/''^^Why/!what; have you been doing, .thatrypuWanttbconfess tohim!"

KFOW JJOBB THAW YOU TEACH. In order that a teacher may be competent; to his duties, he should qualify Mmself, f £ weU as prepare Ms lesson. He should endestvor to be well " up " in the subjects which he teaches. He should endeavor tp acquire a pretty full knowledge of all which can illustrate and throw light upon them. I would lay it down as an all-important maxim, that the teacher should know much more than lie leaches. He should not feel, when with Ms class, that he is working up to his full power; that another draft upon his mental capital, in the form of an inquiry from an intelligent scholar, would meet an empty exchequer, and must be dishonored, because there are " no effects." His ship should sail with plenty of sea-room on each side, with greater depth of water than she draws, and with some sails which are reefed; the crew should have somewhat more bread and water than would be consumed on the average passage, and the captain should know the lights and the sounding of ...

_NEVEB TELL TOO MUCH.

Even extreme accuracy may be dispensed with at first; it is not wise to puzzle the learner with little niceties and refinements, when he is conclusively grasping at any tiling like an approximate idea of the niatter in hand. You will not mislead Mm by using or permitting an expression which is not quite technically accurate; the mistake will not fix itself .upon bis mindj_.for, he is not giving Ms attention to that little point in which the inaccuracy lies: he is not yet ab|e to appreciate nice distinctions and petty exceptions.

NO MIDDLE COURSE IE _RELIGION. Utten dp we hear remiss professors strive to choke all forward holiness by commending the golden mean. A cunning discouragement ; the devil's sophistry! . The mean of virtue is between two degrees. It is a mean grace that loves a mean degree of grace; yet tMs is the staff with which the world beats all* that would be better than themselves. What! will you be singular,—walk alone? But were not the apostles singular in their walking a, spectacle to the world ? Did not Christ call for this singularity?' What do ye more.than others? You that are God's peculiar people, will you do no peculiar thing? Ye that are separate from the world, will ye .keep the world's road ? Must the name of a puritan dishearten us in the service of Gfod. ?

LIVERPOOL MISSIONARY CONFERENCE. More than ten closely printed pages (8vo.) of the "News of the Churches," are occupied with the discussions of this Conference. Why it should have sat with, closed doors, from Monday evening, March 19th, until Friday afternoon, it would puzzle an American, _accustomed to the utmost publicity, to understand. A short public meeting was held every evening at 8 o'clock, and one at the close, in the great Philharmonic Hall, which was presided over by Lord Shaftesbury, and at which it is supposed, more than 4,000 persons were in attendance. . Among the subjects discussed, the most interesting were Education, The Native Agency and Native Churches. As was to be expected in an English Missionary Conference, India was the chief topic of remark and source of illustration. From the remarks on Education we select the following :— By preaching, the young and females cannot be got at in India. Females can be reached only through the schools. Orphan schools,...

RIGHT AND ITS REWARD Plato defined man as " the hunter after truth.'' Said another philosopher— " Were tho Almighty holding in his right hand ' truth/ and in his left 'hand ' search after truth/ to pffer me the one 1 ¦mi ght prefer, I would, in all humility, but without hesitation, choose the latter." That would be a wise choice. There is more living pleasure in acquiring, than in securing possession. Energy is a condition of happiness—a law of human development_'and life. Aotion produces pleasure by unfolding our faculties, thus becoming its own end—action augmenting the power of aotion—energy growing into intenser energy. Such is our nature. This is,true of all creatures. The bird is wrought to ecstasy by its own song, and by its swift, circling flight;—the lamb by its free, innocent gambols in the field. The infant ~""£$ar(i gushes over with delight in his artless gesticulations. And, if we be not overcome by fatigue, prostrated by disease, or afflicted with incurable dulne...
