in Jesus. I was but a child then, and al-
thou'ffh many vears have passed since the
night we were first smitten by the rod of
amiction, sua 1 remember as distinctly as
if it happened yesterday, the feeling of
loneliness that came over me, when I first
realized I would never hear the sound of

lor an past unKinuness, anu now longing-
lyl wished her back to life again, if only
tor a tew moments, that
I . might make
reparation for the faults of childhood.
We next laid by her side, in the church
yard, a little wingless cherub, only a few
days old. His spirit returned to the Be
ing who gave it existence, as pure as
when fashioned frnm His hand, there to
m m I
bask forever in the rays of the Son of
out ceasing, to Him whose throne is the

over their graves. A plain monument
marks their last resting place. Peace to
thy ashes, my gentle, gentle sister. Al
though none of the loved ones are near to
visit thy grave with their offering of flow-
ers, and scatter amongst them tears of
sorrow, yet the dews of evening, nightly
water it; the drapery of the heavens is
its nightly .curtain, and the song of nature,

tops, in the babbling brook, and in the
gentle beating of Lake trie's waters,
when under the magic influence of a calm,
or, when lashed into fury by the storm
demon, its foam-crested billows angrily
beat against their rocky barriers, causing
that hollow, deafening,-sickening sound,
which often proves the death knell of
many of its poor victims.
This, dear sis-
ter, is thy requiem !
Many years have flown, since I parted
with her on the threshold of eternity, and
some mav think the chain that linked my
I J -
spirit with hers, is broken : but little do
they know the workings of the heart.
Of ten.when the flesh is weak and the spirit
weary, I have wished her a gentle, minis
tering angel by my side, soothing and
calming the excitement of the body, by
loving words that drop like oil of healing
'.-a. u . tv
on the tired spirit. At such times I have
the strong, magnetic influence of some-
thing about me, that I believe was the
spirits of the loved ones of my childhood,
who, noting my distress, winged their
way with the rapidity of thought from the
realms of bliss, to be my invisible com
forters. I have often been obliged to
struggle against an inclination to murmur
at the ways of Providence, when I have
seen sisters enjoying each other's society,
and performing acts of love and kindness
for each other. I have also been sadden-
ed vfhen I have seen sisters who seemed
to place more value on the society of hoi
lowhearted friends, and have witnessed
the xrakind looks and wor& that passed
fjtefy between them.
Kext a brother, in the strength of man-
h&jd was smitten down, and nippid from
the parent stem. He was the oldest of
fiur remaining group its brightest orna
ment. Death came to him suddenly, and
witfeyot warning ; but it found him watch
ing "with his lamp trimmed and burning."
Seven jlays ve watched beside his bed,
fearing 'erery moment the brittle jhread
'of life might break. Six days we listened
to the ravings of delirium ; . but on the
seventh the last day of his life the
light of reason shone out again. Vv ell do
I remember that day, how he cheered and
comforled us. His Parents' who saw in

"Yes, James brought it home on Satur

Selection or Trees Planting.
The act of planting a tree, is an impor
tant one. Ve commit it to the soil as we
would send a youth into the world, to sus
tain a a seperate and indepentent exist
ence. Nursed no longer under the eve
of the propagator, it must contend with
the storms, floods, and vicissitudes of cli
mate, witn a Droning sun ana killing
frost, developing as it best may, its system
of branches, buds, leaves, blossoms and
fruit, according to its nature, for our es-
apple-tree, perchance, which we expect
to pour an annual ottering in our lap, of
rich, glowing, or luscious fruit, or a pear.
whose melting gifts are eagerly sought
after by impatient cultivators, too "willing
to reap tne harvest before they have sown
the crop, with intelligence, skill and per
severence ; or still more pleasing, tne rr

stern winter s frost. He who would de

regard to the growth, and succea of trees
and plants, when, we reflect how little
plant-life , has been-studied by many of
those who now ask in the country a happ

us more hopefully than ever before, 'with
increased knowledge of the requirements
of trees, proceed to plant thera rationally,,

they should be cultivated, and tve have no
fear that the generous soil and the balmy
airs of heaven, will blight, our' prospect

To plant a tree is to place it in. a con

have become developed, and if a fruit-
bearing tree, until it shall have borne its
fruit and seeds. Nature has designed so

amount of food by our reason and intelli
gence. Vv e seek in other lands and cli
mates, for fruits and esculents esteemed
greater luxuries than those indigenous
here, and we proceed to adapt our soil to
their growth and development.' We must
hrst learn the elements cf plant-life, then
the substances which ' support vegetable "
existence. Our operations are necessari
ly the result of civilation; we seek to tar
raonize the obiects around us with nnr
lives, and enter upon an artificial system
of culture. We experiment as we pro- '
ceed experiments are not always prcft-
able, indeed rarely so. Let us uot then

Certain trees and plants succeed moro
or less satisfactorily on certain soils. Wc.
must work with this consideration in view...
We do not hope to have as luxuriant wil
lows, or white poplars on the sandy hill-.:
top, as we should find in the moist and -
marshy bottom.- A limited number of' "
trees are not particularly attached lo any
particular soil, location, or climate; these.
are the trees that we may expect to find.',
scattered abroad in the Greatest profusion.
I There are a few species of oak that aro
pretty generally distributed over the coun
try. The silver and red maple are not
peculiarly local, nor is the white or Amer- "
ican elm, the white wood, or button ball.
Yet these, our Yarailliar treees, do luxuri-.
ate much more vigorously in certain soils,
and localities, are less subject to disease"
or insect attacks. In selecting trees to
plant, we cannot choose in many cases,"
those we know are best suited to our soil,
because they may not suit our taste and '
purpose. Again, the trees that would
suit us may not be within oui reach." Ye't,
oy a general observation of the arboricul
ture of our vicinity, we cannot help coming
to the conclusion that a few leading forms
prevail in certain districts. Some species '
are to be found everywhere.,. r As ever-,
green trees, we wculd instance the- Nor
way Spruce and Balsam Fir. And as
deciduous trees, the Silver: and Suar
