ceived by Messrs. Morris & Ireland, whose safes


are now taking the precedence over all others, and is certainly a well-deserved compliment:

BOSTON, July 17, 1872. Having examined the fire-proof safes manufactured by Messrs. Morris & Ireland, we do not hesitate to recommend them, as in our judgment, unexcelled by any in the market. By a vote of the Committee a number of these safes were used at the Coliseum during the late World's Peace Jubilee, where they gave entire Batisfaction.

How doth Death speak of our beloved,
When it has laid them low-
When it has set its hallowing touch
On speechless lip and brow?

It clothes their every gift and grace
With radiance from the holiest place,
With light as from an angel's face;

Recalling with resistless force
And tracing to their hidden source
Deeds scarcely noticed in their course;

This little loving fond device,
That daily act of sacrifice,

Of which too late we learn the price!

Opening our weeping eyes to trace Simple, unnoticed kindnesses, Forgotten notes of tenderness,

Which evermore to us must be
Sacred as hymns of infancy,
Learned listening at a mother's knee.

Thus doth Death speak of our beloved, When it has laid them low;

Then let Love antedate Death's work, And do this now!

How doth Death speak of our beloved,
When it has laid them low-
When it has set its hallowing touch
On speechless lip and brow?

It sweeps their faults with heavy hand, As sweeps the sea the trampled sand, Till scarce the faintest print is scanned.

It shows how such a vexing deed Was but a generous nature's weed, On some choice virtue run to seed;

How that small fretting fretfulness
Was but love's over-anxiousness,
Which had not been had love been less.

Thus doth Death speak of our beloved, When it has laid them low;

Then let Love antedate Death's work, And do this now!

How doth Death speak of our beloved,
When it has laid them low-
When it has set its hallowing touch
On speechless lip and brow?

It takes each failing on our part, And brands it in upon the heart With caustic power and cruel art.

The small neglect that may have pained,
A giant stature will have gained
When it can never be explained.

The little service which had proved
How tenderly we watched and loved,
And those mute lips to glad smiles moved;

The little gift from out our store,

Which might have cheered some cheerless hour,

When they with earth's poor needs were poor,

But never will be needed more!

O Christ, our life, foredate the work of Death, And do this now!

Thou who art Love, thus hallow our beloved! Not Death, but Thou!


HE comes, the month of storms, his features


In ice, with train of sleet and whelming flood; With devastation on his stormy blast,

And blighting hopes just in their early bud. He comes, the month of ice and biting frost; And homeless wanderers, shivering in his breath,

Friendless, on waves of fell misfortune tossed, Sink in Despair's dark sea, and welcome death.

He goes, the king of winter's retinue,

And, like a pitying conqueror, bestows Blossoms of flower and fruit, that spring to view To heal the wounds left by his frosts and


He dies, and in his death-throe heaves a sigh That wakes to life sweet Spring's long slumbering eye.

WHEN first the sun dispels the cloudy night, The glad hills catch the radiance from afar, And smile for joy. We say, "How fair they


Tree, rock, and heather-bloom so clear and bright!"

But when the sun draws near in westering might,

Enfolding all in one transcendent blaze Of sunset glow, we trace them not, but gaze And wonder at the glorious, holy light. Come nearer, Sun of Righteousness! that we, Whose swift short hours of day so swiftly run, So overflowed with love and light may be, Lost in the glory of the nearing Sun, That not our light but Thine, may brightly shine,

New praise to Thee through our poor lives be won!

some time and labour. But the greater part of the busy world cannot bestow the necessary time and labour, and that is what was meant when it was said above that the very truthfulness and minuteness with which modern research is recorded raises up a barrier between writer and reader which did not exist in times when writers could do things in their own way, and compose with an eye to their readers' convenience. This being so, it seems to us that an acceptable service may be done by giving a short account of some results of explorations, of the means used, and of the adventures encountered, while passing over the more tedious details. The idea of so doing occurred to us while lately most agreeably occupied in following the footsteps of different searchers who have been laboriously examining lands and sites which in times past were powerful kingdoms and cities, which have

Of all the kinds of offerings which are tendered to the supreme public, none is so safe from depreciation and neglect as that which gives accounts of unknown or imperfectly-known regions of the earth. A strong natural curiosity prompts us to delight in the information therein given; in acquiring the information we of necessity become acquainted with the personal adventures of the traveller; we learn at what cost and risk our gratification has been procured for us; and we feel a personal regard for the author. As a bearer of new and interesting knowledge, and as a hero greater or less, he establishes a double claim on our goodwill; and if his work has any merit at all, he may calculate on a gracious recognition. The great progress of science, however, and the precise accurate methods of conducting explorations in our day, have — paradoxi- always continued famous, though their cal as the assertion may seem―raised up a barrier between travellers and the great bulk of the people.
