In striking confirmation of our position. we observe that the JV.

One of the survivors and victims of the late fire in Wisconsin relates some thrill ing incidents of these disasters. Sub joined is the experience of a lady : Night was coming on, and 'since noon we had nothing to eat. 1 did not feel hungry, but was tormented with though s of what m?$ht happen if we shouldt reath a place of safety, for I feared that Louis would give out, and that was one reason that made me carry him.

By this time night had cmc on, and what a night 1 No moon, no ars, but the clouuy heavens lighted uo afar with the horrible fiies of the burning woods The clearing ni which we sat waa th dried up bed of a stream, which for some unaccountable reaaou had thickly wooded shores, and we were at least 200 leet from the edge of the forest in flames. All this time Louis, manly little fellow that he was, had not even aeked for food, nor had he cried since I myself foolishly frightened him. I had heard my husband speak of a stream which had ion dry, but that was in a north-easterly direction from our house, and notwithstanding the tact tlmt I was lost, yet I had a general notion that I was approaching Wolf river. 'I he stars could ive me no information, for I could not see them. What to do I scarcely knew ; and when the heat of the fire be came such that I could not doubt that it as near I determined to press on away from it, and taking Louis's baud I set ou . Hardly had I risen from the ground when iti the direction of the woods on the other side of the clearing, I heard a crash ing noise, a mingled gnashing and hoarse barking, which 1 instantly recognised as that ofwolvts. I scarcely had tine to snatch up Louis, and run behind a pine tree, whose trunk was at least six feet in diameter, before I heard them scrambling up the side of the hill, aud felt them rush by me. I looked out and could see their eyes commg toward me like the wind. They did not stop for an instant, and when they passed, there came in their track a herd of deer uttering cries that seemed almost human in their intense agony. They ran blindly, for something more terrible than wolves were behind them ; they struck the tree and were hurled back by the shock, some of them falling back upon those behind. The stampede seemed to last ten min utes, and when it was over, and I, trem bling with fear, dared once more to emerge from the refuge and look across the clear ing, I saw the woods at its edge already burning saw it lurid through the smoke, and felt its terrible heat upon my (ace. 1 turned and Bed in the wakeof the wolves.

TOTtEVER. There is con:airjed in this word some thing which inspires us with profound awe something solemn, grand, incon ceivablel How can we imagine a serien of years merging )n to eternity aud necer ending ? It is impossible. An impene trable nientaf darkness which envelopes the futureyears of patient toil has failed to dispel. ( Great minds haVe sounded the depths which at one timej were deemed unfath omable. Reason and reflection have traced and brought to light many hiden laws of nature, but brforej this subject the mon profound minds are powerless all is darkness and uncertainty but Hope persistently points; through the gloom to a point iu the distance which seems brighter than tbejeet, but which we arc unable to see through any other than the eye of Faith. A.t first we see it but dimly, but, afrer gazing a while, it takes upon itself a mora definite form. It is a gAK a golden gate which opens at times to receive poor wayworn pilgiims, emitting a gloriously bright light, while the sound of lrravenlr mnsie comes 1 floating down the highway of l.fe. cheer ing tlie travellers: thereon. As the eye of Faith grow stronger, we perceive an inscription, wrought in golden characters, which is "Heaven ;" let this be our beacon and our watchword. COMING BACK TO ROOST.
