BUNYAN' PILGRIM'S PROGRESS.

- --------- ---- --
' HRISTIAN G O
Is mournful reflection the daytime was spent,
And night to the danger a deeper gloom lent;
For the red hand of vengeance roused conscience beheld,
Impend o'er its victims who madly rebelled.
The sinner in grief asked, is justice alone
The glory of God, the support of his throne
No; mercy in man thou delightest to see;
* then, great Jehovah, have mercy on me.
As Christian his anguish in words thus revealed,
Evangelist met him abroad in the field;
And showed him the mercy he earnestly sought,
By glorious Emanuel's blood had been bought.
Look out through the shadows, Evangelist said,
To where yon bright beacon its radiance doth shed;
It shines o'er the wicket, which opens the way
From death, guilt, and danger, to life's perfect day.
F UP TO THE GATE."
I I
Now see how he hastens the wicket to find,
Salvation before him, Destruction behind;
Nor thinks on the dangers that lie in the road,
So grievously presses his sin's direful load.
Through the Slough of Despond, through the fires of Sinai,
Nought quenches his ardor, the gate he draws nigh;
When Beelzebub's warder Sin's castle alarms,
"A victim escapes us, rouse, demons, to arms!"
Temptation's wing'd arrows fall round him like hail,
But steadfast his purpose; no foe could prevail;
The wicket is near; en the portal is graved
"Knock, it shall be opened;" he knocks, and is saved.
Oh! hearty the welcome which Goodwill accords,
And blessed the peace which his council affords.
Ye sin-burdened mortals make haste to the gate,
Death waits on their footsteps who procrastinate

THE ALP ACE A LL ED: BEA U T I F U L.
TuERl is honor above and a heaven of bliss,
Assured to the brave and the true;
But the mean, selfish coward ares nothing for this,
What charms has a heaven ftr you I
Through much tribulation, the servants of God
Their.crowns, palms, and white robes have earned;
For they followed a captain who fearlessly trod
In obedience through sufferings learned.
Mistrust, Fear, and Timorous run as for life,
Into death and destruction from Zion;
Would a brave man bear back from the chance of a strife I
David slew both a bear and a lion.
But thou, noble Christian, what makes thee so bold t
Is it rashness that urges thee on 1
Art thou heedless? beware! look before thee; behol
Two lions, and thou art alone.
From deatrtion assured thou thus far hast sped,
And pardon and peace hast received;
Thy blood is less precious than that which was shed,
To warrant what thou hast believed.
0, Faith, what a refuge in trouble thou art,
The promise God spoke, stand it must;
Though the mountains remove. though the hills should depart,
Secure is the Christian's trust.
"From the power of the lions my darling I11 save,"
And Watchful calls out They are chained.
They are placed where they are but to prove who are brave
For glory by valor is gained."
All praise be to Him who his servants ne'er tries,
But a way of escape he prepares;
To the trusting a mansion is sure in the skies,
On God let us east all our cares

BUT BY THIS PLACE CHRISTIAN WENT WITHOUT MUCH DANGER.
WHAT hoary giant sits forlorn, Infernal monarchs from their thrones
As if by all the world forsaken !Rise with grim smiles, and mock saluting;
Why smiles each passer by in scorn, Each bloody tyrant votes with groans
Can helplessness no pity waken 1 The chief man-scourge; no voice disputing.
His toothless jaws and palsied hands
But ill beseem these rich Regalia;
A baton and no warlike bands
Is meaningless paraphernalia.
The time has been these joints were strong
As bars of steel to quell the proudest;
Though palsy chains that quivering tongue,
It once was heard above the loudest.
No monarch in wide Europe dared
To treat thy slightest wish with scorning;
Now thou art fallen, to hate, but spared-
0, Lucifer, eon of the morning.
"We put to death our thousands ten,
Say they, for pleasure or ambition;
We reck'd not of the lives of men;
And now we reign in dark perdition."
But millions scarce thy victims sum,
Kill'd in mock zeal for truth and heaven;
And still thou prayest "' Thy kingdom come,--
Forgive us, for we have forgiven."
These mouldering bones around thy cave,
Mournfully answer thy petition;
Thy mercy was a bloody grave,
And powerless hate is thy condition.

VANITY FAIR.
0, WHAT are the trials you stood in the past,
And noble resolves for the future forecast,
No moment from watchfulness yet can you spare,
You enter the Drecincts of Vanity Fair.
Your kindred and country for truth are forsaken,
You faced many dangers and troubles unshaken;
The lions themselves your brave souls could not scare,-
But shall you pass scatheless through Vanity Fair
Here are sold every folly that pleases the eye,
The venders of fleshly delights say Come buy;"
All soul-killing delicate things rich and rare,
Tempt the traveller passing through Vanity Fair.
The eye and the palate may cease to content;
But lo! dame Ambition to market is sent,
"With crowns, places, honors, and such sort of ware,
In return for a soul spent at Vanity Fair.
Yea, Pride of opinion will fetch a good price;'
Self-righteousness sells at a crown for a slice;
Be a bigot, and that makes you sure of a share
Of a fat sinecureship at Vanity Fair.
Do you aim at the priesthood, feign well, and you win;
Do you wish a state office, profess, and go in;
Only lie and be smooth; but of one thing beware,-
Do not follow Emanuel in Vanity Fair.
*
He set up a stall for the sale of the truth,
And the magistrates said he perverted the youth;
So they caused the Romans a cross to prepare,
And thereon nailed Emanuel in Vanity Fair.
So Faithful and Christian by dress and by speech,
In passing the same thing mu t manfully teach;
And Faithful through fames is conveyed through the air,
While Christian escapes safe from Vanity Fair.

I --- ---, ------, -
CHRISTIAN AND HOPEFUL ESCAPING FROM DOUBTING CASTLE
DABI and despairing no comfort now sharing,
Cruel remembrance my soul wraps in gloom;
No bright ray beaming with hope cheerful gleaming,
Lights my sad vision beyond the dark tomb.
My soul is now chained, her powers all restrained,
Who shall deliver me, 0, wretched man.
Well do I know good, but how to do good,
Sincere though my purpose, I no longer can.
Why did I careless stray from the appointed way,
Rough though the road was, peace there was found;
Wisdom regarded all pleasures rewarded,
The pilgrim who pass'd o'er Emanuel's ground.
When trials were over, bright visions would hover
Around me with sweet.words of comfort and hope;
And in Death's dark vale I found not my faith fail,
Thy rod and thy staff with all dangers could cope.
Now since solacing from toil and transgression,
Duty neglecting, consulted my ease;
Just condemnation and fierce indignation
Are all that in prospect my spirit now sees.
But shall forever the Lord my soul sever
Frem mercy, and is his compassion clean gone!
Must my soul plunge in Despair's dreary dungeon,
Since Christ paid my ransom and sits on his throne t
"Why at life spurn ye, turn, sinner, turn ye,
I your iniquities all will subdue;
A propitiation for every nation
My blood is, and surely sufficient for you."
No longer grieving, but humbly receiving
The master key Promise, I now am set free;
No more despairing but Zionward faring,
I praise as I travel God's mercy to me.

BDNLANtA PILGRIM'S PROGRESS
'Then sazd the Shepherds one to another, let us here show the Pilgrims the Gates of the Celestial
City, if they have skill to look through our prospective glass."
PILGRIMS.
TmLn us, Shepherds, whose those mountains,
Fruitful vineyards,-flowery ieads,
And this flock which by still fountains,
In the verdant pasture feeds
We are travel-worn, and hasting
To a country far away;
Can we spend brief season, tastirg
Calm repose, till break of day t
SHEPHERDS.
Rocky steep and rolling prairie,
Towering mountain, wood and plair
And these pastures, green and airy,
To Emanuel appertain.
These sheep are his so calmly feeding,
He for them his life laid down;
His love for them all love exceeding;
This we doubt you will own.
Rest and welcome, for our master
Gave us charge concerning you;
Even as a faithful pastor
Ever keeps his charge in view.
We have wonders great to show you
For your comfort, as you pass
To the destined city; know you
How to use Faith's prospect glass
9A
PILGRIMS.
Glory be to God forever!
Surely Zion we behold
Just beyond that narrow river,-
Yes, we know its domes of gold.
There its sparkling twelve foundations,
And its pearly gates appear,
But our ravished heart's pulsations
Make the view no longer clear.

THE DELECTABLE MOUNTAINS.
SHEPHERDS.
SnARns and dangers still abide you,
Ere you reach the promised rest;
To sad scenes we now must guide you,-
Mark the fate of the unblest!
See this portal adamantine,
Hear that groan and piercing yell;
Hypocrites, who by-paths flaunt in,
Find this by-way path to hell.
PILGRIMS.
Not to us Lord of consolation,
Not to us be any praise,
That we have obtained salvation,
Just and true are all thy ways !
SHEPHERDS.
O'er this precipice, called Error,
Philetus and Hymoneus fell;
At the foot they lie, a terror
Mock philosophy to quell.
If there be no resurrection,
Then did Jesus die in vain;
Who can know God to perfection!
Who his working can explain!
PILGRIMS.
Who are they that armless wander
To and fro among the graves !
Are they of the few who ponder
On the grace from death that saves
SHEPHERDS.
No; these ease in sloth preferring
To the toilsome narrow way,
They, from understanding erring,
With the dead shall ever stay.
PILGRIMS.
Farewell, Shepherds, now we leave you,
Wiser for our visit here;
May the Sovereign Shepherd give you
Crowns of joy in heaven to wear.
