Only willing till the shadows

Only wailing till Hit glimmer
Of lb diy'i but bam U Down)
Till 111 night of flartll fa faded
From Uio heart, once full of day
Till the elan of heaven are breaking
Through the twilight aoft nod gray.
Only waiting till the reopen
Have the I oat iheuf gathered dome J
For the lumnier-liine la faded,
And the autumn windt hnve coma.
Quickly, reaper! gather quickly
The laat ripe hour of my heart j
For tho bloom of life ii withered,
And I haiten to depart.
Only waiting till the angel
Open wide the mystie gait,
At wlione feel I long have lingered,
Weary, poor, and desolate (
Even now 1 hear the footsteps,
Au J their voices fur away j
If they call me, I am waiting,
Only waiting to obey.
Only waiting till the shadows

Only waiting till the glimmer
Of the day's last beam I flown j
Then from out the galhoring darkness
Holy, deathless atari ahull rim,

Sacied Mi'iic At first it was whispered
among the lowly in the dwelling! of the poor.
Stealthily it afterward! wti murmured In the pal
act of the Ca'surs. When it was dend night in the
depths of tlia catacombs, it trembled in subdued
mdojies, filled with the love of Jeiui. . At length
the grand ealhedrul aroie, and tho stately ipiro )
court! and nrclici echoed, and pillars shook with
tliunder oftlie majestic organ, and choirs, sweetly
attuned, joined their voices in all the mood and
measures of the religious heart, in its most exalted,
most profound, most intense experience put into
lyrical expression. I know that piety may reject,
nay repel this form of expression ; still these sub
lime ritual harmonies cannot but give ilie spirit
that sympathizes with them, the sense of nrghtier
being. But the sacred music has power without
ritual. In tho rugged hymn which connects itself,
not alone with immortality, but also with the mem
ory of brave saints, there is power. Thero is power
in the hymn in which our fathers joined. Grand
were thoso rude psalm which once arose amidst
the solitude of the Alps. Grand were those reli
glous songs, snng in brave devotion by the perse
cuted Scotch, in the deptlis of their moors and their
glens. Tho hundredth psalm, rising in the fulness
of throe thousand voices up into the clear sky,
broken among the rocks, prolonged and modulated
through valleys, softened over the surfuce of moun
tain and lake, had a grandeur and mnjeaty, con
trasted with which mero art is poverty and mean
ness. And whilo thus reflecting on sacred music
we think with wonder ou the Christiun church
on its power and on its compass. Leu than nine'
teen ccnturiei ago its first hymn was sung in the
upper cliamher of Jerusalem and those who sung
it were quickly scattered. And now the Christian
hymn is ono that never censes one that is heard
in every tongue ; and the whisper of that upper
chamber is now a chorus that fills the world
Jtet. Henry Giles,
M iiv tubus ae Moxe I'lous Women than
Men. The reason there are more pious women
than men is not because women are weaker or
their passions less powerfu', but because a feeling
of dependeuco is native in the female heart. It is
because the female mind has to undergo compar
atively a small revolution to become religious.
One powerful barrier that stands before tho path
of every man in his approach to the valley of hu
miliation, does not opposo the passage of the true
woman. It is very rare that those who are de
nominated " strong-minded women" become reli
gious. The pride of personal independence pre
Ho sweet and so natural a thing ii piety among
women, that men have come to regard a woman
without it as itrunge, if not unhealthy, and god-
Jess men often seleat pious wives, because they
see that piety softens and deepens and elevates
every nnturul graco of person, and every aecoin
plUhmeut of mind.
Florence Nioiiitnoai.e. lint by-nnd-by the
lrnwiug room doors are thrown open, and the em'
liosRiulreHs enters, smiling a kind and gracious
welcome. Behind her are her daughters; by her
side, a tall, fush.onablo, haughty beauty. I could
not help thinking how beautiful she looked but
the next instant my eyes wandered from her cold
unamiable face to a luiiy modestly standing on the
other side of Lady Stratford. At first I thought
he was a nun, from her black dress and close
cap. She was not introduced ; the same moment
a whisper, "It is Miss Nightingale!" Yes, it
was Florence Nightingale, greatest of all now In
uame and honor among women. I ensure you
that I was glad not to be obliged to speak just
then, for I felt quite dumb as I looked at her wait'
oil figure and the short brown hair curled over her
forehead like a child's, cut so, when her lifo was
despaired of from fever a short time ago. Her
dress, as I bavo said, was black, made high to the
throat, its only ornamont bciug a large enamelled
broach which looked to me liksthe colors of a reg
iment surrounded with a wroulh of laurels, no
lniibt some grateful offering fiom our men. To
hide the closo white cap a little, she had tied a
white crape handkerchief over the back of it, only
allowing tho border of lace to be seen j and this
gave the nun-like appenranoo which first struck
me on her entering the room, otherwise Miss
Nightingale is no way striking in appearance.
Only her piuin black dress, quiet manner and
great Known, told so powerfully altogether in that
assembly of brilliant dress and uniforms. She is
very slight, rather above the middle height ; her
fuce is long and thin, but this may bo from recent
illness and great fatigue. She has a very promi
nent nose, slightly Homan ; and small black eyes,
kind, yet penetrating ; but her face doe uot give
you at all tho idea of great talent. Afrs. Hornby's

Correct Shaking. We advise all young peo.
pie to acquire, in early life, the habit of using good
lunguage, both in speaking and writing, and to
abondon as early as possible, any use of slang
words and phrases. The longer they lire, the
more difficult the acquisition of such language will
be ; and if the golden age of youth, the proper
season for the acquisition of language, be past iit its
abuse, the unfortunate victim of neglected educa
tion is very probubly doomed to talk slung for life.
Every man has it in his power. He hn merely to
use the language which he reads, instead of the
slang which he hears; to form hi taste from the
best speakers and poets of the country ; to treasure
up choice phrases in his memory, and to habituate
himself to their use avoiding at the same time,
that pedantic procisioa and bombast, which show
rather tbe weakness of a vain ambition than the
pelish of an educated mind.
