very liberal fee, and enjoined secrcsy up

When my youn thoughts so fleet
Upward to Heaven ike.
Lit night, I dreamed that thou
Wand'st come to earth once morej
I kisud t'ny be rtUteous brow,
As I had done before.
I twined thy dark brown hair
Around my little hands;
And wr epini? breathed my prayer,
" O stay death's dread commands I"
I jrared into thine eye,
I pressed my lips to thine,
" O inotVr, do not die,
And leave thy Florentine 1"
" No, I shall never dte,'
Thy aweet voice answered me
" My home is now 011 1 igh,
And thor.; is room fur Ihea."
" Jleatb never enters here
To take a friend r.wuy ;
No gloomy graveyard's near
Fill'd with the damp decay.
" Here songs of love are sung,
Ii! strains that swell divine j
Here golden harps are strung
To Heavenly music's chime."
Thy story makes me glad,
Dear mother, up in Heaven,
I'll never more be sad,
When a harp to me is given.
O Mother, when I wake,
My spirit lungs locom; j
Ask Jesus Clirist to take
His little wanderer Hunt.
Then I will be with thoe,
In that bright, happy land )
And iny dear Father see,
A blest, unbroken band.

The time was when parents had their sons

the world is advancing; that the human
race arc improving. Go ask that aired
father and mother if Ibis be true. Ask
them if people now, with all their boasted
improvements nnd refinement, are hap

their children around them, and the love
of gold had not taken possession of iheir
hearts; und they will tell you no, no, not

In the Church Recorder we find the
following statistics on this subject:
With what success , have the Papists
met i:i our land ? Maryland was origin
ally settled by them. Until theyear 1820
Florida was as completely theirs as Cuba
is at present. Iu Louisiana, Arkansas,
Missouri, and all the territory west of
the Mississippi, they held the ground, and
had a golden oppor' unity of laying broad
and deep their foundations. Bui in which
of these Stales have ihey now a predomi
nant control r In Maryland thero are but
95 Papal churches, while there lire 800
Protestants. Of 152 in Florada, 5 be
longing to the Pope, Of 278 in Louisi
ana, only 55. Ol 133 in Texas, only 13.
For the lust fifty years, Papal lininiganls
have landed on our shores by millions. .
There have also been monthly importations
of ecclesiastics, who new number 7 arch
bishops', and 1,715 priests. These havi
started and kept iu operation 20 colleges
20 theological seminaries, 120 female
academies, and 53 weekly, 1 monthly, 1
quarterly, and 2 annual periodicals. How
much have they gained 011 the Protestants?
What is their comparative strength in
numbers? Tho Protestants houses of j
worship, compared with the Roman, are
as 32 to 1. Unless wo misinterpret the
signs of the times, the Jesuits arc on the
