It is of brass and < t great weight. From it more than two lidiing bask ets were tilled with spears and sword points, axes, hammers, horscbiers. pieces of chain and plate, armor and armorers' tools, the whole weigh ing several hundred weight. The caldron itself is about two and a half feet in diameter at the mouth, and will contain about thirty gallons. It is built ol pieces of brass, beautiful ly fastened together with small rivets niid patched in n great many "planes wi h the same neatness, thus otfriing an antii|iie original of hoiler-innker'n work. It is a matter of history that Edward 1, when iu possession ot U illovv'ay, had a camp in the Fair Island, niul the remains of a camp have been found iu it. When tlio party evacuated the Island tin y may, to prevent the Gal ovidians getting any metal inta their pos>es»ion, have rowed it out in o the loch and sank it where it was found. COMMI:I:CIAI.

Besides all this, there are gall nuts used for dying and making ink ; eantharides, or Spanish Hy, used in medicine, iu fact, every insect is con tributing iu some way, directly or indirectly, iu swelling our commer cial profits. Among the pretty tilings in jewelry in Paris are small hum ming-birds mounted for-ornaments.

Well with thee, mother, for Iho child is sale, away from the evil that is i.i the world. No anxi ety shall ever disturb thee lest Jhy hoy should he beguiled by Satan and ruined. He is beyond the reach ot temptation—beyond the reach of sin to harm him. Thou hast another child in heaven. Well with thee, f; ther, there is another link in the golden chain that draws thee upward towards the better world; another voice, which in the midst of thy worldly cares, when perhaps thou mayst be in danger of being too much engrossed with the things of time and sense, will gently whisper iu thine ear, " Come up higher." Thy sou is with thy (Joil in glory. Well with thee, child. Thy ran somed spirit has spoil its way to (bul who gave it. The glorious inheri tance with the saints in light, for which we must wait until the Fa ther's appointed time, is thine to possess and enjoy forever. The crown of everlasting life is thine. Thou seest His blessed face, the man Christ .lesus, and thou dost know something now of what those words of His mean, "Sutler little children to come unto me." Oh, is it not well with thee? It is well. It is well, beloved, and yet the tears will How, the sigh will heave the breast, the heart will ache. Well, be it so. Jesus wont; then surely we may weep, only let us not weep as those who have no hope, for them that sleep in Jesus will (Sod bring with Him, and we who may then be liv ing shall meet him in the air, and so shall we all bo ever with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words. " Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die it abid> et!i alone, but if it dio it bring cth forth much fruit."

The grim tyrant is no re specter ot persons, of age, or of sex. t lie lays his bony hand upon the tot tering old man, and takes him | away ; ho touches with his icy tin j gorstho blooming maiden, and her j cheeks grow pale; he steals the | mother's darling from her lap, and hurries him away. He listens to no entreaties; ho heeds no cries; ho tramples on broken hearts, nor bolts nor bars can keep him out; gold; i cm:not bribe him; threats cannot terrify him, and when he is bent on securing his prey, he laughs to scorn the skill of the physician with all his medicine* and healing remedies, and he may come tor thee next, or thee, •>r thee.

Hut we have not lost him ;he h-'s only gone a little while before in, and this little body which we are going to put in the ground will not he lost either. Ouo day Jesus shall send his angel to sound the last trumpet, and then Willie lieed's body will come out of the ground again all the more beautiful for hav ing lain under the sod. I don't think Willie would come back to us now if ho could ; but I do believe, if he could speak to us now, ho would tell his father and mother not to break their hearts with grief, but to rest in the Saviour's love. Ho would toll them how good a thing it is to see .lesus and be with Ilim. lie would tell them to wait patiently the Father's appointed time, lie would tell his brother, and you all, dear children, that Jesus was far, far lovlier, that Heaven was u far, tar more happy place, than you can imagine, and he would say to you, Get ready to come and be whero I am in this blessed Hcavon." Won't you do so, children ? Won't yon love Jesus more? Won't you think more of Heaven ? And then, at last, we shall all meet again above, and sing tlio sweetest songs and hear the sweetest music in the presence of tlio Great God, our Saviour and with little Willio Keed. An Eastern editor, walking along a street in Milwaukie one day, was a little puzzled by what ap peared to be a kind of motto, painted in large letters on a window. It ran thus : " Noolas llccb licgal." lie pondered a long while, unable to make out the meaning of the strange motto, which appeared to be in Lat in ; but at last he discovered that the window, which had probably b"eu taken out to be washed, hud IM'CII put in wrung si«l J out, and that be bad consequently read the in -eriptiou ITJT kManl.

It will be seen that the socoud letter of 11. C.

It will be observed that the letter of the Chief Clerk, dated Nov. 12, informing Mr. Harding that the money had been received to pay his claim, was written two days after the appoaranco ot our paragraph. This shows that the Jicrcrctul Chief Clerk is not altogether blameless. PORT MAIUSON, Aug. 14, 18GG.

IMMORTALITY OF GOOD DKEDS. —Can works of love and mercy be shut out forever; can the grave swallow up all that is dear to them ; can words burning high with lofty endeavor, and gushing forth from generous ami noble souls,ever cease to vibrate, leaving their impress for good; and can music, that sweet refiner of the soul, ever be lost amid the lesser harmonies of life? 13clicvo it not. From all that is beautiful, good aud true, we draw a thread of our being.
