proaied the house of a widow, her prand-Uangller-E.
15 years old, ran to me exclaiming
"O All C, I am so glad to pee you again that
I may ell you how I feel and thank you for

tracts ou gave me when you were here before.
Then was a wicked child and should have been

Oipabbath ''morning 1 visited as unday school
in a tction where iniquity abounded a few years
sincef I went in time to witness their entire
exercses; and a more interesting scene I have
seldan if ever beheld in iy life. The Govern
men of the Snpt. and the attention and instruc
tion )f the teachers, was of the most pleasant
and ffeetual character. The children were all
quie deeply interested in reciting their good
less is, and in hearing the explanations given.
I hrfe found 60 of "The Pictorial Tract Prim
merr in use. aud the Supt. said "This book is
justrthc right thing for interesting and instruct
ing l-hildren. All are delighted with it." And
a mther here remarked, "So simple, tender aud
touching are the answers in the catechism of the
Trait Primmer that my son John, though not
quilt; ft years old is so delighted with and im
pressed by them that frequently he is affected
to fears while I am teaching him the lesson,
anuhe will . 'then say, "Aia, I must be a good
bo, for the Lord is great and good." Tl.is
Scfool has increased from 43 to 87 scholars
smie its' celebration on the 4th of July last.
One of the Supt's plans for increasing his school
is, to give to him or her who brings in a new
scholars a nice picture tract and one to the new
scholar. "This gets the whole school interested
and at work.
I gave a tract called "The Fool's Ponce" to
a moderate driuker 13 mouths ago ami he at
UMice gave up t lie use of ardeut spirits and loan
fed it again ; and in this wav it has passed
through 18 families, and by it 13 persons have
been induced to give up the u.-;e of alcoholic
liquors as a beverage.
I have been forcibly struck and greatly en
couraged by hearing professors of religion speak
of the happy effects produced on their minds
and hearts from reading the Tract Volumes.
Some have been thoroughly awakened to their
christian duties, aud in the performance of duty
they testify that they have enlarged views of
God, new love for Him, and increasing concern
for the spread of the gospel and the conversion
of sinners. Many of them have requested me
to give them an opportunity to contribute an
nually to the Tract Society, assuring me that
their prayers should ascend daily for God's
blessing to attend all its efforts aud instrumen
talities. A travelling minister recently fcuid.

Recently, a gentleman came to me in the
street and said, "My heart is filled with joy to
an over-flowing this morning, and I wish to
speak with you about it. Since I having been
tryiug to serve God my dear wife has strongly
opposed me. But for the last six months she
has received aud read a Tract monthly, from,
the "Female Tract Society" which seemed to
make her serious and occasionly she has gone
to church. On last Sunday she went to church
twice and at night she was much distressed
and unwilling to retire I asked her to make
known her mind and feelings to me. She seem
ed to hesitate a moment, and then said with
streaming eyes, 'Oh I am such an awful sinner!
What shall I do? I have opposed your pray
ing in our family and I have never heard you
pray. I do not want to lie down to-night with
mrtjiearing you pray, and pray for me.' I at
puce-got my family together and for the first
time tried to pray in public. And in the dis
charge of this duty my soul has been abundant
ly blessed and my wife is yet anxiously inquir
ing for salvation." Ibis lady has since been
hopefully converted to God.
i Most of the last month, November, I was on
a visit to West Tenn. where Colportage has and
is yet doing great good. I was greatly strength
ened and encouraged by spending a few days
with Bro. T. J. Terry Colp. of Henry Co. May
the Lord long spare his useful life. I also met
with other Colporteurs by the way who suc
ceeded well in getting travellers to take good
books aud tracts to read instead of novels. A
fine looking gentleman came to me on the cars
and purchased some tfacts. He seemed un
usually glad to get them and after he had dis
tributed some, he took a seat with me and
stated-that whenever he saw tracts his gratitude
to God was newly stirred, for it was a tract
given him by a Colporteur between Philadelphia
find New York that was instrumental in awak
ing him and bringing him to Christ, the sinner's
friend. May we all take fresh courage in work
ing lor Uod who ever works for us.

The number of persons of foreign Wrth now
in. the United States is 2,210,839: the nnmber
of natives, whites, 17,737,578, and of persons
whose nativity is "unknown," 39,154 Mr

right, swearing before a court of justice that
she was letrothed to hiun. The poor girl, abash
ed but indignant, appeared before the judges
at Toul, and contradicted by oath this calumny
of passion. The judges saw through the plot,
and sent her home free.
While her beauty thus charmed the eye, the
composure of her face, the thought fulness of
her features, the solitude and silence of her life,
astonished her father, her mother, and her bro
thers. The possessed only the grace and at
traction of her sex she had none oTits weak
ness Her face exhibited neither her feelings
nor the emotions of her heart. Its expression,'
concentrated in her eyes, seemed rather that of
meditation than of feeling, yet she was compas
sionate and tender; but her pity and tenderness
extended to something greater and more dis
tant than her immediate horizon. She prayed
unceasingly, spoke little, and avoided the com
pany of her equals in age. She generally re
tired alone; and plied her needle in a secluded
nook, under a hedge behind the house, from
which she could only see the blue sky, the tow
er of the church, and the distant crtst of the
mountains. She seemed to hear voices within
her which the noise of the world would have
She was scarcely eight yenrs of age when
these signs of inspiration began to appear in4
her. In this she resembled the Sybils ot old,
marked from their infancy with the fatal seal
of sadness, beauty, and solitude, among the
daughters of men instruments of inspiration
reserved for oracles, and to whom evrv other
employment of mind was prohibited. She lovf d

Tin: Inox Mountain. Who has not heard
of the "Iron Mountain of Missouri?" In the
county of St. Francois, and in the midst of a
fertile and flourishing agricultural region, some
eighty miles from St. Louis, and some twenty
eight from the Mississippi, rises this famous emi
nence of iron. It is thus described by" a corres
pondent of the St Louis Republican:
"The mountain and the mound consist of
masses of iron ore of the richest quality, arran
ged by the hand of Xature in 'ready-made'
lumps, from the size of a pigeon's egg upwards,
mixed with a small portion of reddish-yellow
clay, which itself contains quite a per-ceutage of
iron. Thus far the workings there is no min
ing necessary have been confined to a small
portion of the westerly slope of the mound, the
mountain being held in reserve, I presume, for
the grander operations of future generations.
A few hands, with little labor or cost, pick out
enough ore to supply the furnaces. The entire
mound, so far as it has been excavated and test
ed, is composed of these lumps of ore, almost as
pure a.rpig. metal, easily separated from the
clay which fills the interstices. In many places
scarcely anything but lumps of pure ore, with
hardly any admixture, appear. In some parts
of the workings the ore taken out requires no
roasting to prepare it for the furnaces; but,

When this mound, or that portion of it above
the level of the furnaces, is all changed from
its crude state to iron, the company may pro
ceed to excavate below the level, or .continue
eastward a few hundred feet, and attack the
mountain itself, which, so far as is known, is but
a vastly-enlarged edition of the same volume.
But at what period will the mound, even, be
exhausted? I have seen no calculations and
heard of no estimate of the quantity of ore; but,
for my own satisfaction, assuming the following
data as entirely w ithin reasonable bounds, these
results are obtained:
"Twenty acres, an average depth of fifty feet,
yielding (sav) four tons of ore to the cubit
yard, would produce seventy per cent, as the
net yield of metal, four and a half millions of
tons of iron. If this were taken out at the rate
of one hundred thousand tons per aunum, it
would occupy-' forty-five years. Unless, there
fore, a much larger quantity be yearly disposed
of the present generation of workers will not
witness the disappearance of the mound even to
the level of the farnaces. Respecting the quan
tity in the mountain, it is enough to say that
it is practically inexhaustible. The line of the

mediately west of the works, affording easy and
most convenient railroad access to the mound,

Hpfak not Hanhlr,
Speak not harshly much of care
Every human heart must bear;
Enough of shadow s darkly lie
Veiled within the sunniest eye.
By thy childhood's gushing tears,
By thy griefs of after years;
By the Anguish thou dost know,
Add not to another's woe.
Speak not so har'hly, much of f in
Dwelleth every heart within;
In its closely covered cells
Many a wayward passion dwells.
By the many hoan mis.epent,
By the gifts to errors lent,
By the wrong thon didst not shun,
By the good thoa has not done,
With a lenient spirit scan,
The weakness of tliy fdlov can.
