And a spell of enchantment is borne on the air
That steals from tbe heart every shadow of

There Mercy and Love wander, clasped hand
And Faith twines her wreath of Immor
And the sky-by God's rainbow
Reflects on his bosom the Beautiful land

DEATH OF Rev. HASH, MANLV, 8a.
W e have heretofore briefly mentioned
tho death of this well-known and useful
Divine The Charleston Courier gives
the following parti culm- of hi death and
a short sketch of his life :
"He died in the town of Greenville, In,
this Mate, on Monday last, the people of
that place evincing every respect for the
memory or one who b id so universnllv
e 1 nl eared himself to the people of Somh
Carolina as Dr. Manly, by bis winniuc
and cminont traits of character and .prac
tical usefulness from early manhood
among 1 hcni, bad done.
Dr. Manly died of pneumonia, but for
some time past had suffered from paraly-
ak, Olid otherwise from that impaired and
declining health usually attendant upOn
advanced years, lie was born in North
Carolina, in 1798, and at the time ot hi
demise was in the 71t year ot his age.
f le entered the ministry at an early age
and soon proved himself to be as distin
guished in the fields of secular acquire-
menis, as no was protouna iu Iheoloetcal I
t a. a .a
Dr. M a nl v was a men of great depth f T
piety, but withal was so very ami-ibto in
disposition and approachable to every one,
that even the young and guy sought
companionship and counsel.
Ue accepted the pastoral charge of tbe
First Baptist Church, in this place, in
1826, filling that positiou very acceptably
and efficiently till 1 837, a period of tde van
years. Dr. Manly was then called to the
Presidency of the University of Alabama,
and for a length of time served thai seat
of learning with a seal and an abil i t y that
added greatly to its already distinguished
usefulness a id high tone. He again ac
cepted a call to this city in 1855, and as
suming tho pus toralcare of the eongrega
firm of the AVesAarth street Ik&lU
Church, sdmiuiHicr! tjwt fmrt four years,
returning again to Alabama, and engaging
mainly 111 preaching and agricultural pur
suits. Thus has lived and passed from his
great usefulness and tho church militant
here, to tlin church triumphant in Heaven,
the Rev. Basil Manly, D. D., as pure a
man and as beloved a Divine, perhaps-, as
any wh 'so death we have ever fell our-
r ia '.a ate
selves called 011 to cnronicic
In remembrance of his many shining
virtues, and of onr great personal regard
and esteem for him while living, we claim
to mingle our deep sympathy with that
of his numerous family ana menus, in

.The wonder that we refer to is a negro
'girl, raised in Hludl county,
Hinds county, and, is a
pianist, she certainly excel anything that
we have listened to. This girl, Emma,
about eighteen years old, is as black as
the ace of spade, and does not know a
single note, and cannot spell the sim
plest word. 8I10 was a bonse-servant,
and as such was permitted to play upon
the piano. She can play any piece, how
ever difficult it may be, after hearing it
it played ; and her accuracy and delicacy
of touch is rea'ly something very remark
able. For the past two years she has
been employed n a field hand, and has
had 110 opportunity of playing or listen
ing to others play. Her performance uu
the piano is astonishing, as well for ac-
curacy, dclicacf- ot touch, and brilliancy

GET SLEEP ENOUGH.
A yonng mm in busine must ae
knowledgo one mathematical hut, He
knows by experience about how many
hours of sleep, he need to be as fresh
oue day as on tho previous day. He
mast acknowledge the fact that he can
not set tiji late and rise eurlyiftnd get thi
amount of 'sTcep7"'Tliere''is',a' right main?
cmalical obstacle to the accomplishment
of snch a fact. It he needs seven hours
sleep as many young men dor-or eight
hours, as more young men do - he can
not get them between 1 o'clock A. M. and
7 o'clock A. M. If he insists on late
hours, he must neglect either his sleep at
ono from tevcn and leaving eight. The
question) is whether or not he appreciates
this impofsibiltu in the eve iing when be
is called upon to decide between " inl.
ly g od time" and his bed. One verv frt nu-
ent mistake is that lost sleep can be "made
up." In the first place, whatever a young
man may intend to do. he verv aeblom
acctually tries to 4 make up ' for lost
sleep. If he needs eieht honra'
and gets bnt five, lie 'usually makes up
the lost three by sleeping about one hour
longer than usual the next niht. n.
periwps he depend on Sunday on bal
ancing the whole week, LmmmmmmV "
hoars' extra sleep, "makes up ror ten
honr lost. In tbe second place, one hour
of regular sleep is w.mh, for purposes of
recuperation, at least two hours of "make
up" plumber. There is practically no
such thing as "inakine un lost sleep.

before the departure of the lamented He-
nber for India, he preached a sermon which
contained this beaut it'll illustration:
'Life bears us on like the stream nf
mighty river. Our boat first glides down
the mighty channel through the playful-
mnriuuriiigs of the little brook an 1 Ipc
windings of its grassy borders. The trees
shed their blossoms over oar young heads ;
the flowers seem to offer themselves to the
yonng hands ; we are happy iu hope, and
grasp eagerly at the beauties around us;
hut the stream hurries on, and Still onr
hands are empty. Our course iu youth
and manhood is along a deeper aud wider
flood, among objects more striking and
magnificent. We aro animated at the
moving pictures of enjoyment and in
dustry all around us, we are excited at
shortlived disappointment. 1 he
ream bears us on, and our joys and our
gnets are alike behind us. We may be
shipwrecked, but we cam.ot be delayed;
whether rough or smooth, tbe river has-
tens till the roar of the ocean is in our ears,
