CuiLinaii imagine the possession nf greet wealth if they Lave stuff- ed their little purses with counters, or mo- noy made of old cards and broken pottery, but, when they' offer their tin for biscuits to tho biker, they learn with sorrow that it is worth nothing. In like manner, we, loo, dream lhat the possession of same hundreds of ibouEandu of pieces of gold makes us great ami mighty men, and entitles us to universal respect, whereas, when wo appear with them at the gale of Heaven, we shall ba told that they arc filth, and nothing more.

The first year of married life is a most important era in> tho history of man and wife. Generally, 33 it is spent so is almost subsequent existence. The wife aud bus- band then assimilate their views and 'their desires, or else conjuring up their dislikes, they add fuel lo their prejudices and animos- ities forex'cr afterwards. I have some where read; says Mr. Wise, in hb ".Bridal of a bridegroom who gloried in his eccentricities. He re- quested his bridu to accompany him into the garden, a few days after their lie then threw a line over the Giving his wife one end of it, he retreated" to Ihc other side and exclaimed: -rail the line." She pulled at bid request so far 33 nho could. Ha cried; "Pull it over." "I she replied'. "But pull with all your might." still' shouted tlic whimsical husband. But vain were all the efforts of the bride to pull over the tine, so long as the husband. held the oppo.iilc end. But when he canw round and they hoth'pullcd at the same end, it came over with great case. as the line fell from ihc roof, "you sec how hard and ineffectual was labor when we both pulled in opposition to' each other; but how easy and pleasant it nus when we both pulled together; it will be so' with us through In this illustration, homely as it may be, there in sound philosophy, fituband and wife must mutually bear and coinside if they' wish to make home a retreat of happiuesa and bliss. One alone cannot make a home happy. There needs unison of action, sweetness of. spirit, and great forbearance and love iu both husband and wife, to secure the great end of happiness in the domestic circle. Home. is no unmixed paradise of." sweets; the elements of peace and true hap-> pincss are there, and 50, are 'the'ele- mcuts of discord and misery; and it needa only tLc bitter spirit world to .make it a pandemonium, or.the loving- genius of harmony to make it the promoter of every affectionate impulse.
