Among all the extravagant and absurd views

we have seen nothing to surpass the religious

argument is, that it is at religious duty to ea-

This is pushing the question }os most revolt

religion altogether, and men who uke it to 0.01-

and aught to be alike regarded as enemies of
the true spirit of religion, though doubpesy
they are different in their aims and temper; To
claim the sanction of religion for the nej;ro's
enfranchisement is ridiculous from the fact,
that political privileges form no part and were
never designed to form a part of the code of
Christianity. The principle is established in

Christian doctrine. The ostensible friends of
the negro must be hard pressed if they seri-
ously mean to debate the question on such
ground as this. Christianity requires that in
the negro's new relations, he should be guarded
and sustained in all his rights of humanity, but.
politicalrights merely concern his political con-
dition and constitute no portion of th6se rights

suited for the Sabbath. Let any one who thinks

in a selfish humor if ever I was; for surely if
ever one mhn ought to greet another it wise on
such a comfortless afternoon. The footsteps
stopped behind me, a.nd Iheard a voice:

I turned instantly and answered, oI am; do

The Hindu juggler takes a dry stick, plants
it in a pot with some earth and water,- makes
his invocations, and covers it up. In a short
time he removes the cover, and, trehold 1 the

. of the circle; and the whole scene, remember,

C6ruse is consider eut ud
years before Christ. He was beautiful in per
son, and still more admirable for the amiable
qualities of his ,mind. His early trainhag in-
ured him to study, the endurance of fatigue,
and the control of his appetites and passions.-
In his first twelve years of life, he was said to
surpass all of his own age, in knowledge, and a
frank, noble dignity of carriage.
At this early period, lie was sentto the court
of his gthndfather, Astyages, the Median king
where he remained for five years. There the
temptationsof luxury and self-indulgence, by
which he Fras surrounded, had no power to
draw him fromtemperance and simplicity. He
was ever anxious to make peace between those
who differed, and to obtain pardoxi for such as
had offended. So gentle, generous, and benefit.

was peacefully settled in his great empire, he
busied himself in framing laws for its prosper-
ity and repose. "For a king," said he, "should
be the shepherd of hispe ple, and exerciaRy)g--
ilence and care over his ock."
This sentiment reminds us of the prophecy
of Isaiah, uttered more than a century before
the birth of this prince, and 170 years before
the fall of Babylon, which it also predicts;
"that saith of Cyrus, he is mT shepherd, and
shall perform all mydpleasure.
Prosperity erowne his efforts for the good of
his people, and unbroken health, the reward of
temperance and tranquility of spirit, enabled
him to persevere in these efforts. Yet he kept
in his secret heart, a fear founded on the chan
ges of this mortal life, and the frailty of man,
which restrained all pride, and kept him as
humble as he was active and powerful. Of him
it might have been said, as it was of our own
Washington, that true merit waste foundation
of his greatness,
Therefore, he affected no self-importance, but
was affabletoall, and repaid by cordial attach-
ment. Cicero asserts that during the whole ps-
riod of his reign, he was never heard to speak to
rough; or angry word. Xenophoh speaks of
him, as exhibiting the "model of a perfect gov-
ernment." Herodotus modifies this praise, and

books of the Old Testament that deserve be-

after the time of Artaxerxes were not of cana
credit with the rest. Philo, the Jew, is -alto-

These consoling words had a very good effect
on Ella. She brushed away her tears, took up
the stocking which she was knitting, and said
that she would finish it in a good humor.
Now, I must tell you about, Ella's father, and
what he was. He was a good, honest man. He
was a mason in a large manufacturing town in
Germany. He had to build very high walls,
and chimneys as high as shot towers. Many a
time he came hear falling off, but in every case
he caught hold of something and was saved,-
At the time of which am speaking he was
building a great chimney for a sugar refinery.-
Everybody who saw him working on it thought
a very dangerous place.
Ella went to ber mother, and, taking a seat
beside her, said:

athheerm t efimsh the big chimney to day;
oYes; he said that he was going to throw
the whole scaffolding down this very afternoon,
And I am very glad of it, for I am always anz-
ious about him just before he finishes a high
chimney. There is great danger, and your fath
er is generally the last one to come down."
"Then," said Ella, "Willie and I will go to
see him, you ill cons and Pre w ha e

the streets just as fast as they could go. By
and by"they reached the great chimney. The
seaffold9g was nearly all down, for the work-
men ha been takmg it down very carefully all
day. The last piece was taken off. Willie and
Ellasaw a great crowd of people gathered all
around. They had come to witness the laying
of the last brick on the top of the chxmney.-
By and by the last stroke of the trowel was
made by Mr. Singer, the father of Ella, and
her brother. He stood up there alone. He
took off his hah and cheered. All the people
below answered him with loud shouts of con
But in a little time after the cheering had
ceased, they heard Mr. Singer call aloud, as if
. in great distress, "the rope I the rope!'
The workmen who had taken down the scaf-
folding looked around, and, behold I there was
the great rope lying flat on the ground It
was the one which was to have been fastened
at the top of the chimney for Mr. Singer to
come down on. Strange tossy, it had not been
thought of during the whole day. It should
have been fastened before any of the scaffold-

in wd a mio prevailed. Everybody was
panic-stricken. It was impossible to throw the
rope to the top of that high chimney: and it
was equally impossible -for Mr. Singer to come
down without a rope. All the people wereat a

his eyes, for the people begantocryandsoream
and that soared himmore than ever. He heard
his too little children crying as if their hearts

Mrs.Singer wascalmandsilent. Had a stran-

she had but little feeling. But that would be a
great mistake. She had as much as anybody
else. But she was in the constant habit of
trusting in the Saviour under alleircumstances,
