One of Draxy's Sermons. BY SAXE HOLM. One of her most impressive sermons was called “The Gospel of Mystery.” The text was Psalm xxx. 2: “Day unto day uttersth speech, ami nijbt unto night sheweth knowledge ” First she dwelt on the sweet meaning of the word Gospel. “Dear friends,” she said, “it is a much simpler word than we realize; it is only ‘good news’ ‘good tidings.’ We get gos pels every day. Our children send us good news of their lives. What gospels of joy are such letters! And nations to nations send good news: a race of slaves is set free; a war has ended; ship-loads of grain have been sent to the starving; a good man has been made ruler; these are good tidings—gospels.” After dwelling on this first, simplest idea of the word, until every one of her hearers had begun to think vividly of all the good tidings journeying in words back and forth between heart and heart, continent and continent, she spoke of the good news which nature tells without words. Hare she was eloquent. Sub tle as the ideas were, tm>, were yet clothed in the plain speech which the p^ people un derstood ; the tidings of the sprfZ^ f winter, of the river, of the mountain; oi of silver, of electric fire; of blossom and Iruit'; of seed-time and harvest; of suns and stars and waters;—these were the “speech” which ‘day uttered unto day.” But “knowledge was greater”than speech: —night in her silence “showed” what day could not tell. Here the faces cf the people grew fixed and earnest. Iu any other bauds than Draxy’s the thought would have been too deep for them, and they would have turn ed from it wearilv. But her simplicity con trolled them always, “bland on your door stepson a dark night,” she said,—a night so dark that you can see nothing: looking out into this silent darkness, you will presently feel a far greater sense of how vast the world is, than you do in broad noon-day, when you can see up to the very sun himself.” More than one young face in the congrega tion showed that this sentence struck home and threw light on hitherto unexplained emo tions. “This is like what I meaD,” contin ued Draxy, “by the Gospel of Mystery, the good tid'ngs of the things we cannot under stand. This gospel is everywhere. Not the wisest man that has ever lived can fully un derstand the smallest created thing: a drop of water, a grain of dust, a beam of light, can baffle his utmost research.' So with our own lives, with our own hearts; every day brings a mystery—sin and grief and death: all these are mysteries; gospels ot mystery, good tid ings of mystery; yes, good tidings! These are what prove that God means to take us in to another world after this one; into a world where ail things which perplexed us here will be explained. * * O my dear friends!” she exclaimed at last, clasping her hands tightly, “thank God for the things which we cannot understand: except for them, hjw should we ever be sure of immortality?” Then she read them a hymn, called “The Gospel ofMystery.” Coming after the ser mon, it was sweet and clear to all the people’s hearts. Before the sermon it would have seemed obscure. THE GOSPEL OF MYSTEKY. Good tidings every day, God’s messengers ride fast. We do not hear one-half they say, There Is such noise on the highway, Where we must wait while they ride past. Their banners blase and shire With Jesus Christ’s dear name, And story how by God’s design He saves ns, in his love diviue. And lifts us from our sin and shame. Their musie fills the air. Their songs sing all of Heaven; Their ringing trumpet peals declare What crowns to souls wbn fight and dare, And win, shall presently be given. Their hands throw treasures round Among the multitude. No pause, no choice, no count, no bound. No questioning bow men are found. If they be evil or bo good. But all the banners bear Some words we cannot read; And mystic echoes in the air, Which borrow from the songs no share. In sweetness, all the songs exceed. And of the multitude, No man but In hts hand Holds some grea' gift misunderstood Some treasure, for wUoro use or good His ignorance sees no demand. These are the token* lent, By immortality; Birtli-marks or our divine descent Sureties of ultimate Intent, ' God’s Uospel of Eternity. Good tidings every day. “fingers ride fast; Th««kuT*2Godfora" they saj: rV*'?klueh noise on the highway, _ *hile they ride past. , Tlte Elder’s Wife,\ Scribmr’s for William H. Seward. The following is the panegyric of Mr Ad j urns' oration on the great statesman, Wilil.1 ; U. Seward: the second period of our history, that nen“ !» «*" heaviest etof^, ftSdS?.

He was never ! a m.prp theorist or dreamer of possibilities he i could not read). He speculated boldly, but he w as an actor all the while, and effected results. It is in this sense that I think mv narrative has established for him a iust claim to the high position I assigned to lnm at my outset. He may not, indeed, rise to the full sta.ure of the philosopher stateman “equal to the present, reaching forward to the future,'’.never seen even in the palmy days of ancient Greece, or perhaps anywhere -else, but at least he stands in the first rank of those admitted most nearly to approach it. But thus far I have considered him ex clusively in his public life. The picture would scarcely seem complete if I omitted a word about him as a man like all the rest of us. By nature he can scarcely be said to lijive been gifted wilh the advantage of an imposing presence, such as fell to the lot of Mr. Calhoun and Mr. Webster. Neither in face nor in figure would he have attracted particnlar notice, and both his voice and power of articulation were little favorable to the power of bis elocution. Yet he had in a remarkable degree the faculty of fixing the hearer’s attention, the surest test of oratori cal superiority. His familiar conversation rarely kept in the dreary round of common place. and often struck into original and in structive paths. HU personal address was easy and careless,sometimes rather blunt. It. lacked something of the polish of the most re fined society, but there was a simplicity and heartiness in his genial hours that often brought one close to him in a moment. At times, when in good spirits, there seemed a superabundant glee springing from his own thoughts, which spent itself in laughter more robust than could be wholly accounted for by anything expressed. And yet it had a sym pathetic pover over the hearers almost irre sistible. In his domestic relations he was pure and affectionate—leady to heed the monitions of a gifted and refined partner, and profit by her prudent counsel. Unhappily, her infirm health breeding a strong inclina tion for retirement from the bustle and ex citemcut of the society at Washington, ma terially detracted from the influence as well as the satisfaction attending her husband's elevated position. I Viu 1VM..UUU.1S nuum ilia I »Cl vUUIU lilt? J imagine it possible for me to claim credit for Mr. Seward, on the score of his honesty as a public man. Yet the time has come when we must honor one who never bought nor sold a vote or a place, and who never permitted his public action to be contaminated in the at mosphere of corporation influence. On that subject I had occasion to know his sentiments more than once. Above all be was earnestly impressed with religious feeling, never mak ing parade of it, but never omitting even proper occasion to make ii properly respected. One of his finest traits was the calmness with which he endured all the various political as saults made upon him by opponents aud often by those of his own side. Few persons of his time encountered more. It is the nature of power always to raise a body of resistance in a relative proportion lo the force ol its own movement. Then came also the day of com plaints raised by the large class fated lo be ag grieved by disappointed hopes or imagined of fenses, the arrogant, the incompetent, the ra pacious, the treacherous, and the unscrupu lous, always to be found intrenched around about every fountain of political favors. Mr. . Seward was never tempted to elevate the po sition of such persons by controversy, or even to profit of opportunities for merited retribu tion, even when clearly within his grasp. To his intimate friends he was deeply attached. One of these who survives him, may I sav his fidus Achates. “It cornea etparibus curia vestigia figii," whose singularly disinterested labor it has been to effect the elevation of others to pow er, and never his own, and to whose remark able address I strongly suspect Mr. Seward owed many obligations of that kind, has been obliging enough to submit to my perusal numbers of his confidctaial letters, received during interesting periods in the writer’s life, which have been collected and bound in vol umes. I have closely examined them, as lay ing bare the most secret impulses of his mind and heart. Yet, highly confidential as they appear on their face to be, I could not detect a single passage which, for his sake, “I could wish to blot.” The line of great statesmen in America may or may not strttch out “In yon bright track tbat fires the western skies,“ to the crack of doom. But the memory of him who guided our course through the most appalling tempest vet exiierienccd in our an nals can scarcely fail to confront all future as pirants in the same honorable career, as an example which every one of them may imi tate to his advantage, but which few can hope to be forte nt.te as to excel. The Yerb “To Break.” “I begin lo understand your language bet ter,” said my French friend, Mr. Arcourt, to me; ‘‘but your verbs trouble me still, you mix them so with your prepositions.” “I am sorry you find them troublesome," was all I could say. “I saw our friend. Mrs. James, just now,” continued he. “She says she intends to break down house keeping. Am I right there?” “dreak up house-keeping, she must have said.” keepHf ^es’ * remember.

Ah! I had not heard that.” “She is very sorry about it. Her son only broke the news down to her last week. An I right ? I am so an> ious to speak the En glish well.” “He merely broke the news. \o preposi tion this time.” r 1 “It is hard to understand.

Good day.” “So much,” thought I, for the verb “to break.”—Young Folk's Notes. niSCJCLLANEOrH KIOTICKft.
