T/;im iV Life, — If we die to-day, Ihe sun will shine as brightly, and the birds sing as sweetly to morrow.—Business will not be suspended for a moment, and the great mass will not bestow ai thought to our memories. "Is he dead !" will be the solemn inquiry of a few, as they pass to) their pftasure or their troik. But no one will miss us, except our immediate connexions; ant! in a short time they will forget us, and laugh as merrily as when we sat beside them. Thus shall we all, now active in life, pass? away. Our children crowd close behind us, and they will soon be gone. In a few years not a living being can say, "I remember him." We lived in another age, and did business wilh those' who have long since slumbered in Ihe tomb. —= This is life. How rapidly it passes! Ci, blessed! are they who are held in everlasting remember'- ance.

"Alps upon Alps arise." and a life thus devoted becomes sublime, as it approaches Jlis who "went about doing good." What the expression "God said let there be light and there was light," is in reference lo the sublime of creation, the phrase "lie went about doing good, is in regard to the moral regeneration of mankind. Counterfeits.—An altered $3 bill on the Slate Bank at Camden,N.J. was shown to us yesterday. Itiuno respect resembles the gcmiiuc, though the signatures arc pretty good imitations. The words •State Bank at Camden, near Philidelphia,' hive evidently been put in on an erasure of the name of some other bank. The fraud may be known by the figure of a pair of horses racing between the signatures of the cashier and president, which is not on the genuine bill.
