Reminiscences. A letter writer from Philadelphia, in the Boston' Courier, culls up these recollections of what hag been in that city: ; ¦Philadelphia , though abounding in wealthy lileil still, hits fallen from tho high position she once occupied in this respect. Monuments of this fall are strikingly conspicuous. Before my wiikfow stands the stuffed hide of the thirty-live million1 "monster," stuffed now with Uncle Snm' s revenue parchments, The victor occupies the house of the slain. It stands a porpetunl monument of tho I act that no "monster," however powerful, is powe ful enough to successfully combat tho "unternlicd c emocracy." More emphatic still speaks a little sign the bigness of n man ' s hand, a little further down t ic street, b y , the Bide of nn unpretending stairway hading to a small dusty room, which echoes only to the trend of a grey and wan looking clerk. On this llttla sign Is written, "Otllce of the Trustees ol ' the Dank of the United States," Here, In thi...

Yet toiling on, they watched in wild despair The watersdashing by in horrid glee; [air, While their loud shrieks, which rent the troubled Were lost amidst the roaring of the sea. As thus they gazed, ere the fourth watch was past, Each cheek was blanched anew with awful dread, For, amidst, the howling of the blast They saw a shadowy form the waters tread. And yet it nearer drew, a softened light Shone o ' er the brow, and round the angelic head, And through the storming of that fearful night, They heard his voice...

A Word in Season. BY DICKENS. They have a superstition in the East, That Allah, written on piece of paper, Is better unction than come of priest, Of rolling incense and of lighted taper. Holding, that any scrap which bears that name, In any characters, its front imprest on, Shall help the finder through the purging flame, ; And give his toasted feet a placcjo rest on. ; Accordingly, they make a mighty fuss, ! With every wretched tract and fierce oration, i, And hoard the leaves—for they are not like us, A highly civilized and thinking nation. And, always stooping in the miry ways, To look for matter, of this earthly leaven, ¦ They seldom, in their dust-exploring days, Have any leisure to look up to Heaven. So have I known a country on the earth, Where darkness sat upon the living waters, And brutal ignorance, and toil, and dearth, Were the hard portion of its sons and daughters; And yet, where they who should have ope'd the door Of charity and light for all men ' s finding, Sq...

ChooHlng a Minister. The people in one of the out parishes in Virginia, wrote to Dr. Rice, who was then ut the head of the Theological Seminary.in Prince Edward, for a minister. They said they wanted a man of first rate talents, lor they had run down considerably, anil needed building up. They wanted one who coulil" write well, for some of the young people_were very nice about ithis matter. They wanted a man oi" very gentlemanly deportment, for some thought a good deal of that. And so they went on describing a perfect minister. The last thing they mentioned was, they gave their. minister three hundred andi fifty dollars; but if the Doctor would send them! such a man as they described, they would ¦ raise! another fifty dollars, making it foijr hundred. The; Doctor set down and wrote a reply, telling them'; they had better forthwith make out a call lor old Dr. Dwight, in Heaven ^ for he did not know of any one in this world who would answer this description.

Desolation. i DY II. T. TVCKER3IAN. ! Think ye the desolate must live apart i By solemn vows to convent walls confined 7 ! Ah ! no ; with men may dwell the cloistered heart, And in a crowd the isolated mind : ; Tearless behind the prison bars of fate ¦ The world sees not how sorrowful they stand], Gazing so fondly through the iron-grate Upon the promised, yet forbidden land ; Patience, the shrine to which their bleeding feet, Day after day, in voiceless penance turn ; Silence the holy call and calm retreat In which unseen their meek devotion burn ; bife is to them a vigil that none share, Their hopes a sacrifice, their love a praver.

American and English Women. The. American girl at IS is one ot" the most beautiful of living beings, but at 30 she is passe.— At 40 the English woman is in her prime. Whence comes the difference—from their respective habits of living, The American woman lives in hot houses and takes very little exercise abroad, and when she does, she is ill protected against the weather. Tho English woman rides, walks, practises archery, and other exercises in the open air, and is always properly clad to meet the exigencies of the weather. Hence her beauty is a perennial bloom. One is a hot house plant that withers on exposure , the other a hardy tree that flourishes in every phase of weather. , . ! ¦
