EVENING STAR. WHEN STARS ABE IH THE SKIES. ITI.L. BT7LWI1. When ?Un are In the quiet skies Then most 1 pine for thee; Bend cu me then thv tender eyes, A# stars look on the see For thoughts, like wnes that glide by tight, Ar- stillest when they shine. Mlneearthlv love lies hushed in light Beneath the heaven of thine. Th?re is an hoar when angels keep Familiar watch o'er men. When coarser souls are wrapped in sleep Sweet spirit, meet me then . Them is an hour when holy dreams Through slumber fairest glide, And In that mystic hour It seems Thoa ?honlas: be by my side. The thoughts cf thee too sacred are For daylight's common beam : 1 can but know tkte as my star, My angel and my dream ! When stars are in the quiet skies, Then most 1 pine for thee; Bend on me then thy tender eyas, As stars look on the sea. A Word i? Tims ??;Iq the Confer ence, when Elder P. was Presiding Elder, there wore three brother*, all preachers, and not generally considered very bright. One hs<l been examined, and had gone out for the conference to pasa upon him. Elder P.. as presiding officer, rose to give his opinion. " Brethren," said he, "these S?s, all of them, ?re well moaning men?they're good mea?I .ney re good Christians; but there s no mistake abuut it, they ro all of them got a very soft place in their ho*ds somewhere " Turning his ne&d a little, ho met the indignant eyes of the two ither brothtrs fastened full upon him Without changing a muscle, he raised one hand to emphasize his words, and with a cu xious expression of countenance, stealing on, he continued: "And to tell the truth about it, who ha'a't?who ha'n't?" Beaitifcl Swils.?Sir Walter Scott, in his 44 Woodstock," remarks, with rare felici ty : " There is, I know not why, something peculiarly pleasing to the imagination, in con templating the Queen of Night, when she is reading, as the expression is, among the va pours which she ha? not yet the power to dis pel, and which, on their side, are unable entirely to quench her lustre. It is the strik injj image of patient virtue, calmly treading her path through good report and bad report, haying that excellance in herself which ought to command all admiration, but bedimmed in the eyoi of the world, by suffering, by misfor tune, by calamity." Tocchijtq Epitaph.?It is refreshing to find upon the tombstone of departed worth, sueh delicate sentiment* of profound respect aa are embodied in the following lines cut upon a tombstone. 41 Here Ilea Mayor Parker, Whom the Lord aaw fit to slaughter. He died wlthont any fears. Was burled without any tears, * And where he's gone and how be fires, Me one knows and no one cares." M0VEMEKT3 OF OCEAN STEAMERS.
