The most replied the Angel is god unveils ins Jesus is by the spirits of the just made per or Xigues and hallelujah to god and Are continually of the departed expressed a disgust As he answered s there no Oiler place but that Good Angel 3 1 liked to hear about Jesus Christ and i 7 sure n would to very repugnant to my feel anywhere in hid presence and As top Jim singing and Piel Utic jargon i Al had the utmost contempt for it and do not Tho deposition to conform to it now.

But the spirit of the dead rebounded Back from the sphere of the stir As by some i natural repulsion arid passed downward into a shadowy Region. And now they Drew near to another world where were forms of men Valk ing slowly and conversing with each other and Ever and anon they looked upward with an i Earnest and imploring expression. I in this the Angel Are those who never fully in their life received the offer i of the gospel by Jesus Tut who died with a longing after truth and undeveloped germ of Good in their souls. Here by prayer and by 1 searching this germ is unfolded till they ascend i to the presence of i said tie dead this is not the place i i am in quest of. I suppose Here i should find i an army of churches and priests All in array to l make a proselyte of me. No let me go where i All these things Are never heard i then replied the Angel to thine own and with these words the spirit of the departed sunk to a gloomy Region that Lay far below. The Angel followed him not but stood above. Lie then found himself joined by two ill looking figures one of whom laying hold of him roughly saluted him by a vile name that reminded him of the sips of his youth. How is he exclaimed. Where am 1 now 1 Are there no police to protect me from abuse 7" the Angel from above answered that police which you found so convenient in the world you have forsaken owes All its i efficiency to that moral sentiment inspired by the religion of Christ which you say you always despised. You wished to be where nothing of the sort existed and your wish is granted. This is a world where no relic of any of those res which come from god in any shape re there is no Trace of any kind of virtue that had its origin in his Laws and institutions. All that can be expected from the association of the ungodly and haters of god you will find Here but look not for Security rest or piece of mind in such society. Those Only Are to be had among the friends of then the face of the dead Man grew dark with anger and blasphemy As he bitterly replied i see now How it is thou most holy most virtuous most devout Srajn of god thou most Excel Lent preacher of righteousness. I am in the so called regions of despair this is what i am to understand and Call you ibis the land of my gloomy and sterile desert where not one Flower can unfold such a residence is contrary to my taste and therefore contrary to replied the Angel is it not meet that the Beautiful mansions of my father s House should be inhabited by his children who love his presence and enjoy his smile be cause thou canst not Bear him and them i be cause All that thou finest there is disgusting and painful to thee therefore it is that thou Art compelled to seek this outer darkness. Accord ing to the character of the soul to doth the material world form itself around it. Around the pure and peaceful spirit pure and peaceful skies arise around the Lovely and the Good forms of loveliness and Beauty Are constantly springing but around the dark minded and impure and passionate dark and Stormy Clouds forever arise for the world without must forever image the world within. Such is the immutable Law and does it not seem to thee to be Justice 3" it May be murmured the dead angrily but these vile forms around me Are these my equals 3" they Are replied the Angel. He who first addressed you was indeed a Low coarse Volu stuary thou was a polished and refined one hut still be were both of the same order and the artificial distinctions which separated you in yonder world no longer and How rejoined thu spirit angrily is this to be my residence 3" tis thou canst Lave god whom thou now hates till thou canst fall in repentance and submission at the of Jesus till thy heart beats with the heart of the till till then rejoins the dead Man love ask forgiveness from Nevar never outer storm fire were better than that. Here i shall at least have one hate and despise and hold them in utter contempt forever. I be subdued 3 no never i no responded the Angel in a voice that thrilled through the dark Region. No never thou Hast spoken the Anglo Saxon race. By Eli fill bin Rutt. Britain has been frequently denominated Ilia Mother of nations. Whatever May be her appellation nothing is More evident and True and the Fael that her Island has been the Laboratory of f a most remarkable race to which nearly All the people of Europe from the roman to the Norman Conquest were combined. All that is vigorous the Celt the Saxon the scandinavian and the Norman was absorbed in what we Call the Anglo Saxon race and when the combination ii was completed on the Uland of great Britain n Neva world was discovered As if it were on purpose for the irresistible expansion of that mighty race. As an illustration of its physical qualities it is estimated thai its population doubles itself in 35 years whilst that of Germany doubles itself in 70 of Holland in 100 of Spain in 106 of Italy m ,13o of France in 138 Portugal in 238 and1 thai of Turkey in 555 years. When about 250 year ago one or two vessels crossed the planted or re and there coast of in Forth America a few germs of hint race its a Hoje population in Tho old to Bdl did not exceed six millions. England Wales i hid i Scotland numbered fewer inhabitants at hat time than new York Pennsylvania and Olno do now. Hardly two centuries and a half elapsed since that epoch and now there ars least of that race in North America and its adjacent islands or a number exceeding the whole population of great Britain. In 1g20, the Anglo Saxon race numbered and was confined to England Wales and Scot land and the combination of it is the result was not More than half perfected for neither Wales or Scolland was half Saxon Zed at that time. Now it numbers of human beings planted upon All the islands of the continents of the Earth and increasing every where by a ratio of progression. It is fast absorbing or displacing All the sluggish races or barbarous tribes of men that have occupied the continents of America Asia Africa and the islands of the Ocean. Sec. It gird in them from year to year with its vigorous i i nations. If no great physical revolution super Ine to Check its propagation it will number of human beings it less than 130 years from the present speaking the Nairne language entered to the same literature religion and exhibiting All its inherent and amiable characteristics. I a. Thus the population of the p4rth is fast be coming Anglo Saxon Zed by blood. But the English language is self expensive and aggressive than the blood of that race itts if we May speak reverently the John the Baptist in the Mission of that race uttering its voice sit upon the same Bench in our common schools with those of native americans and become As the y grow up and diffuse themselves among the rest of the population completely Anglo Saxon Zed. I thus the Rice by its wonderful self expansive Power of language and blood is fast occupying and subduing to its Gen All the continents of the Earth. The grandson of Many it Young Man who reads these lines will probably live to see the Day when that race number its of human beings. Perhaps they May comprise a Hundred nations or distinct governments. T perhaps they May become a grand Constellation and Commonwealth of republics pervaded by the some Laws literature and their Union Harmony and brother Hood must be determined by the relations be tween great Britain and the United states their Union will be the Union of the two worlds. If they discharge their duty to each other and to Mankind they must become the United heart of the mighty race they represent feeding its myriad veins with the blood of moral and Politi Cal life. Upon the state of their Fellowship then More than upon the Union of the two nations on Earth depend the Well being of the peace and Progress of the world. Hor. Could t cure him. Eel Tea and All other cure to drunkenness that human science Ever devised were tried in vain on Philander Nicholls the last maker. Mrs. Nicholls had used some de Perate reme Tiea of Jalapa Dies such As steeping Large Iran aloes ipecac in Philander s continued to drink with Undiemi but he shed relish and teaching its words 10 the scattered tribes and tongues of the Earth in every Distant wilderness of barbarism. When a Community be Gin to speak and read the English language it is half Saxon Zed even if not a drop of Anglo Saxon blood runs in its veins. Ireland was never colonized from North Ameri Ca or Australia but nearly the whole of its seven or eight millions speak the English Lan Guage which is the preparatory state to becom ing entirely absorbed in the Anglo Saxon race As one of its most most vigorous and useful ele ments. Everywhere the English language is gaining upon the languages of the Earth and preparing those who speak it for this absorption. The Young generation of the East indies is learning it and it is probable that withing 50 years of the Asiatic race will speak the language on that continent. So it is in the United states. About emigrants from Germany and other countries of Continental Europe Are arriving in this country every year. Perhaps they cannot speak a world of English when they first land upon our shores Muster to e language m Homo extent. Their children and the. Consequences of this dosing system was More troublesome to mrs. Nicholls herself than it was to Philander her husband. Being dead drunk every afternoon within half an hour after he began his Day s Jollif cation a rapid did he Pur Down the he never Felt the slight est inconvenience or unpleasant sensation on account of the Medicine he had swallowed. At influence or music. Among those mysterious influences which come Over the heart almost imperceptibly and like the glad Sunshine to the Flowers fill the soul of Man with Delight music is the most Subtile and at the same time the most potent no Palace Walls confine this heavenly. Influence within the abodes of no wealth or rank can Purchase for Ite owner the exclusive right to the luxury of hearing and enjoying Sweet music. The italian peasant and Thel Swiss Mountaineer Carol their Tojo the free airs of heaven and the notes borne on the Gale to the ear of the passer arrest his step and Send a thrill of pleasure through his veins. Nor does it need sunny skies nor the lowering form of the Noble Alps to Waken the soul of music in the human heart. Wherever there is a sad heart to cheer wherever there Are hearts swelling with desires which cannot be expressed and Hopes which words would dese crate in the description there you May find music. The Natu ral expression of sadness is music. The Only Relief a heart throbbing with emotions too deep for utterance can find is to pour them Forth in Eong. Music is not then the Queen of an hour ruling to Day and resigning her sceptre to Morrow. Her throne in Man s heart is As listing As Hope and fear Joy and sad Ness nay As lasting As love music is the food of care of the eyes. Looking in the fire is very injurious tithe a Coal fire. The stimulus of Light and heat United soon destroy the eyes. Looking Iron soon destroys the sight. Reading in the Twilight is injurious to the eyes act of Assembly.

And the company were free from present Embarrass ments and the Road repaid with Good rails and the track of the same Guage or Width As York and Erie Railroad and was connected therewith at Corning it is believed that this Railroad would immediately take its p Ace among our most valuable Public that thereby the Commonwealth would be speedily released from the guarantee. And whereas the loan holders i Tock holders and creditors of said company have by very general co Sapt agreed to the terms of a proposed Compromise and consolidation of their respective debts claims by which the same which have various rights and priority amounting exclusive of in Terest to about four Hundred and fifty thousand dollars Are to be consolidated into Stock. Section 1. Be it enacted by the Senate and House of representatives of the command Tach of Pennsylvania in general Assembly met and it is hereby enacted by the authority Aflfe same that a new Stock shall be created by a combing Attoh of the interests of the present holders of Stock loan and other claims in the following manner that is to say the nominal or Par value of each share of Stock shall continue to usual served now and then to break the silence which reigned around us a silence far differ ent from that peaceable composure which Char tobacco.

The silence of night in a crowded City and the silence of the country contrast strongly with the hum of Busy thorough fares during the j Pany e except Slock or loan Tob a issued a Hereta Day time.
