The followii.g parable delineats that
condition of mind and heart which makes
God the object' and source of love and
happiness. It presents the Christian stand
ard "God all, and in all :V . ' . ; ' ; !
; A zealoU3 divine, ,"vvho had prayed
earnestly that God. would" teach him tho
perfect way of truth, was directed, in a
dream, to go to a certain place, where he
would find an instructor. . .When ho came
to the place he found a man in ordinary
attire, to whom he wished a good morn-
"I never. had a bad morning," replied
the man.. -'
'That is very singular : I wish you
may always be so fortunate."
'I was never unfortunate," said "he. '
'I hope you will always be as happ3"
said the divine.. " .. ; ; : ' ..
'I am never unhappy," said the other.
'V'I wish," said the divine, 'lhat you
would explains yourself a little.".
"That I will cheerfully do," said he.
"I said that I never had a bad morning-";
for every morning, even if am pinched
with hunger I praise God. If it rains,
or snows, or hails, , . whether the weather
is serene or tempestuous', I am still thank
ful to. God, and, therefore, ! never have
a joyless morning. .If I am miserable in
outward circumstances, and despised, I
still praise God. You wish that I might
always be fortunate ; but I can not be un
fortunate, because nothing befalls rne but
according to the will of God ; and I be
lieve that His will is always good, in
whatever He does, or permits to be done.
You wished me always happy ; but I can
not be unhappy, because my will is always
resigned to the willbf God.""
"But what if God 'should' thrust' you
down to hell?"
"I have. two arms faith, and love with
which I would , hold on to my God and
Savior, and not let Him go; and I would
rather be in hell with God, than in heaven
The divine, astonished at the man's
answers, asked him whence he came. .
'"I came from God," he replied.
"Where did you find God ?"
; "Where I left the world."
"Where did you leave Him?"
"JWith thepure in heart."
"What are you ?V ;' " ;;!' .
"I am a king."
, "Where is yotir kingdom ?" .
"It is within. my own boscm, 'I have
learnt to. rule my appetites and passions ;
and that is better than to rule any king
dom in the world." .'. ' .
"How were you brought into this happy
"By secret prayer, spiritual meditation,
and union with God. Nothing below God
cevdi satisfy ny desiresJ: -I have found
Him, and in Him I have peace and
rest." - .
The Louisville Journal say3 that ''dull
times are the very best for advertisers.
The little that is going on they get, and
whilst ethers are grumbling, they pay
their way; and with their newspapers for
a life preserver they swim, on the water
while others are sinking around them.'
John -Wesley says: "When I was
youn?, ' I was sure of every thing; ia a
few years, having been mistaken a thou
sand times, I wa3 not half so sure of the
most things as I was before ; at present I
am hardly sure of any thing but what God
has revealed to man." .. -
: of Henry -Clay.
'By tho lined letter from the Rev.
E6v.ird F. E,'rkiey, Rector of St. George's
Church, who was for many years Mr.
Chy's Paster, at Lexington, Ky., and
holding the most intimate relations, with
him, v;e hare the settlement cf an: inte
resting historical fact:
St. Louis, May 11, 1S59.
W. A. Bell, Esl Dear Sr: Your
letter cf the 4th inst., making inquiry as
to the mode, in which the Hon. Henry'
Clay was baptized by me, was July re
ceived, and I seize the first lefcurs moment
to send you an answer, - ' J
Mr. Clay was baptized in his parlor 9 at
Ashland, on the 2Cd of June, 1517, in
cur usual way. by pouring a handful cf
icaler m his head, in the name of 'the
Holy Trinity ; one of his daughters-in-law
and four of hi? granddaughters being
baptized at the same time, and in the same
way. . .
Mr. Clay knew that the baptismal ser
vice of the Protestant Episcopal Church
athorized imuernon, whenever it was de
siret and he knevathat I occasioially ad
ministered the right in that way, tut in
all our conversations on the subject of
religion and of baptism, he never' once
alluded to immersion or made a 'single
remark about it. ' - ;, ; j
You received the impression that: he
was baptized by immersion, 'doubtles, from
the fact that a day or two after litis oc
currence, a Louisville paper (and I think
it was the paper published under tte auspices-cf
the Baptist Church) announced
that Mr. Clay had been baptized in .one
of the beautiful ponds 'of Ashland.5' This
statement :va3 -wholly gratuit;u;'j and
without the least foundation. ' :
It may be proper for me, in thus connec
tion, to say that the reason of his receiv
ing this holy ordinance at home, was, that
my congregation at the time were building
a new church. edifice, and we had no fitter
place for the "performance cf these tiered
I have answered your kind note in a
hurry, but you can maky. what usa ycu
please of it. .
-1 am very truly yours, he,

was crowded to excess by a most attentive
audience. During the last four years a
religious service has been conducted on
everv Sunday morning for tho benefit cf
these men by a clergyman residing m the
parish." At eight o'clock on' Sunday night,
the Bishop of ; London read, ma clear and
emphatic manner, the sixth chapter of St.
John, and .then preached half an .hour
from the 14th verse. The sermon was
admirably adapted to the occasion, and
was listened to with breathless attention.
The truth was never more forcibly ex
pressed than in the following lines:
If. there is a man who may eat hi3 bread
Et nfare with God and man. it is that man
who has brought that bread out of the
earth by his own honest industry. It is
cankered by no fraud, it is wet by no tear,
it is stained by no blood. -
The Ideal Woman.
The true woman, for whose ambition a
husband's love and her children's adora
tion are sufficient, who applies her mili
tary instincts to the discipline of her
household, and whose legislatives exercise
themselves in making laws for her nurse,
whose intellect b.33 field enough for com
munion with her husband, and whose heart
asks no other honors than hi3 love and
adoration, a woman who doe3 not think it
a weakness to attend to her toilet, and
who does net disdain to be beautiful; who
believes in the virtue cf glossy Lair and
well-fitting gowns, and who eschews rents
and 'traveled edges, slipshod t.hoes and
audacious makeups, a woman who speaks
low, and does not speak much,, who is
patient and gentle, and intellectual and
industrious, who loves more than she
reasons, and yet does not love - blindly,
who never scolds and never argues, but
adjusts with a smile, such a weman is the
wife we have all dreamed of once in our
lives, and is the mother we still worship
in the backward distance cf the past.
The essence of moral goodness is love.
A lady correspondence of the Buffalo
Express, "advising cn the subject of wear
ing hoops and lifting up dresses, says :
"'The hoops should be. near together,
say two cr three inches apart, and come
to within as many inches of the feet or
the bottom ' of the dress. In going up
stairs you need only lift the front of your
dress, and: in descending, the back pin
of your skirts. The front part cf your
dress can 'by no effort be soiled in de
scending, neither can the back part by
ascending a pair cf stairs. Do therefore
have a reform in this to my mind im
modest habit you have heedhssly gotten

r.ir.e o'clock last niht I was conversing

young man stepped up, and addressing
bin, remarked, "we're going to h?.ve a

supposed that this was merely a continu

to promote the general good feeling and
merriment. The ceroid stood up before

and tho "preacher" asked the necessary

"husband and wife." There wa3 a good

"preacher," who remarked to mo that he
liked to see ycung folios enjoying them

in contributing, to their fun ; but he did
not understand why they should select
him to act as the preacher. Just then

which was next to mine. When I re

talking with the gentleman who played
the "attendant," and who, as I came up,
remarked: "Well, if that's the case it is

Last evening, a handsome locking wo
man was passing down West Water street,
with a little basket of eggs in her hand,
and when a few rods from the Menomo
nee barn, was knocked down on-the side
walk. Her cries brought a gallant wid
ower to the rescue, who saw to his hcrrcr,
a billy goat, that evidently had a horn too
much, doing hi3 best to put an end to the
poor woman's misery. The widower tried
to scare the goat away, but he wouldn't
be sacred. He tried to help the lady up,
when, lid! came the head of the goat
against Tnmself, and two buis together
came, for the goat gave Lim another ; and
down he fell, crosswise the lady, to the
serious damage cf a doz?n fresh eggs.
"J2?" cried the lady; "get eff me ycu
villain," said the injured female. "But
my good woman" and but went the goat,
and the rough horn of the animal spoilt
an eight dollar pair of pants, in the worst
rjace they could be spoiled? "Help"
cried the woman, "my eggs!' "Oh my
pants" cried the man. "But never mind
the pants get up," cried the lady, and
jus: as he wa3 trying so to do, but came
the gcat, and down caiuu the man again.
The cries cf the two victims brought quite
a crowd to th-3 spot, where there lay the
woman, and there lay the man "twin
misery's pregnant with danger," and
there advancing and retreating, battering
llrst one and then th 3 ether, oscillated the
confounded goat. The last but L3 made,
one cf his horns caught hi the basket, and
he left the scene cf action,, with the tasket
hanging over cne eye, and the yolk cf
three cr four eggs, dri.zling down over
hio magnificent beard. The man backed

eyes, when he turned and ran like a quar
ter horse, swearing at all goats in gene

lady sat down, and with a piece cf shingle
