The Sabbath-bill how sweetly breathes U'er lull and d lie that Inll.ntid sumd, When Spring her first briitlit cbaplet wreathes The cotter's linmblo porch nroundj And glilcning meads of ternal green, The blossomed bough, the spiral born, Smile o'er the brook flow s between, As shadowing forth a fairer morn. The Sabbath-bell 1 'tis stillness all, Pave where the lambs unconscious bleat, Or the lone wood-dove's plaintive call, Are mingling with ilsendcnce oweet t "Save where the lark on soaring wing At heaven's gnte pours her matin-song! Oh 1 thus shall feathered warbler sing, Nor man the gratefjf-rain prolong. The Sabbath-hell I how soothing flow Those greetings to the peasant's breast I Who knows not labor ne'er can know- The blessed calm that sveetens rest I The day-spring of his pilgrimagr, Who, freed awhile front earthly eare, Turns meekly to a heaven taught page, And reads his hope recorded there. The cabba 111 -bell! yes, not in vain That bidding on the calc is borne j filad respite from the echoing wain, The sounding aie, the clamorous born ; Tar olhcr thought those notes inspire, Whrre youth forgets his frolic pace, And maid nnd matron, son anil sire, Thtii church-way path together trace. The Sabbath-bell I -'re yet the peal In lessening murmurs melt away, 'Tis sued with reverenl al step to steal Where rests around each kindred clay 1 Where buried love, nnd several friends, Parent nnd offspring, shrouded lie, The. tear drop.falls, the prayir ascends, The living music, nnd learn to die! Tho Sahbalh-bell ! -'tis silent now ; Tne hole fane the throng teceivc"! The pastor bends hi acid brow, And slotvly turns the sacred leaves. Oh I blest where b'ciidmg ranks agree To Ir.-ad the paths their fathers trod, To bend abke the w t ling knee, One fold liforc one fostering God 1 The Sabbath-bell! Oh 1 does not time In that still voice all-t'oquent breathe! How many bate hstenrd to ihat chime, Who tlecp thote grasy mounds beneath ! How many of thoo who listen now Shall wake iis fate-recording knell, Hies sed if enc brief hour bestow, A warning in the Sabbath-bell I SI'IIMTUAL ITtUACIIIXG. We oflon bear tho remark, 'Our minister larks spirituality in hi? preaching.' To a great cMent this uny be m. Hut da his hcarcre cter consider tint their miniver is a human boin"; like thcin-eivef, fiibjeet to like temptations and trials with other men ? Or do they ever ask why tltcy expert pu much from the man chosen to break lo I Item the bread nf life ! Is it be-e.nm-u ihe- are earnest in their prayers for his urotvtli in grat e ; i it because tliey arc zealous in slaying his hands anil c.o. operating in bis work and lahorof Into ! I)) they doalljn their power to wii!cn his influence, to cheer and en. courage bis heart amid bi toilsome efforts ? Do their united voices evcracend in fervent prayer fur Oud's blof.sing u)rm bis labors I Or, on the contrary, do they chill his warmth of love by rnolne.-s and indifference, check his growing influence by improper remarks and open violation of the enmiii iiiilnntit, 'Thou sink 11 it bear false witnct against thy neighbor.' When pnoplo complain of the want of spiritu ality, they ought to 'she things nl the potter of spiritually di-cerned,' and search their own heart.-1, to see if their ovtn souls bate the power of spiritual discernment. Many a clergyman wbo-o closet frequently witnesses hi earnest wrestlings of soul for tho salvation of his flurk, ami whoso eves open weep over the apparent dcadncss pertading his charge, U thought to bo wanting in spirituality. His dis. courses may bo plain, practical, animated, lie may bring lo their composition and iinpait to the favor and holy warmth of ono who walks with God, who communes much with his Savi. our, and jet tu his cold hearers, they may ap pear very deficient. IIo may ascend high in the mount and speak of things above tho tvrld, and still teem, to the spiritually blind, lacking in heavenly life. There doubtless is much preach ing that is not spiritual, but before a people cum plain of their minister, they ought to bo sure of their own spiritual condition. Nor should they think it their minister's fault, if they upon ex animation, find a defect in themselves. No minister can make a negligent, slothful profes sor, spiritually.ininded. As lie beholds not a few such entrusted to his care, lie cannot hut leave them in Ins hands to ttlmm l.zeliiel refer red the answer of the question, Shall these dead bones litej' 'Lord thou knotvest.' Complaint is not tho remedy first tn be applied' even when a spiritually-minded people aro tin. der thu charge of a mill s'er, whose sermons havo bu' little warmth. To how many complain ing congregations, the question, 'Do you pray for your minister 1' would bo a deserved rebuke! I'rayor in tho spiritual atmosphere, is as firo in tho physical, It enlivens and animates tho chilled and torpid heart, and quickens the dor mant energies. If a people want their minis ter to bo spiritually alive, they should cr.ll up his slumbering zeal by prayer. They should surround him wiih a warm spiritual atmosphere. It is unjust tn place a minister in a Grcenhnd climate, and demand of him the frii'ts of more genial regions. It is cruel to build around him barriers of Ice and 6iiow, and expect him to thaw thorn away. There is a I lech in Iceland ; but tve fear the physical fact can have but few mor al resemblances, tt is judicious to settle, before complaining about a minister's spirituality, what is meant by the term. If by it is meant, that llio pastor docs not by his Sunday dibits, so warm up the hearts of bis flock as to keep them interested the remaining days of the week, the question msy well bo asked, 'Whoso fault is it J' If by it U meant that ho gathers none into Ins flock, the question tiny lie put 'Can lie bo I he Iinl'i" counsellor in this thing 1' The vtiml ulowelli where its listeth, lie cannot direct Ilia course of i llio Spirit. If by it it meant, that ho does not cause excitement, the- question becomes just. Is .!.cilc.nent spirituality t If by it is meant j ti r . : i , it,n m-l i eomo luiagnieu defect, it is best that the tm.igi. nation be Jitectcd lo some other purpose, tlnu I . .. , , , , . , , ,, ,,,, nnd,,,;: blemishes in a weak clow-man. may be such a want, ami doubtless is, hut wnen we bear tho complaint, 'Ho wants spirituality,' we wish to examine t lie spiritual vision of the complainants, to learn if they pray for their niiirstcr, and to be certain what t'ley moan. x and v. l'ron the Svracnso I'recman.

At this iinnoiinceuient the nfiltctcd man turned his l.ico from the cirl (h it she might not witness ins grief and went, while sbo in silence resumed her tusk. Having finished it, sbo went lo her fuller, nnd finding that hu slept, look her candy and went out, ns si io hid been accustomed lo do, to obtain by the sale of it the means of their scanty sub sistence.

I And not a few pitrchised from Fidelia ! more in .sympathy anil loudness, linn liom a desire lo eat her candy. One place was there especially at which she always found a sinilinr; purchaser.

IIo had milieu, but bis loiters never reached the nnxions fuller. Ono eve ning, however, about this time, on going to llio Post Ollice, Fidelia saw upon the list a leltcr from Loudon, directed to 'James Quimby, or his daughter Fidelia.' On breaking tho seal sho learned witli delight, it was from her brother, and contained a fifty pound note, assuring them hu was in good business, and intended during the year to visit America. A new era seemed to bn rrealed at oncn in tlio history of ihn poor family.
