Complete Sets of The Living Age,

At a Large Discount.

The publishers have a small number of Complete Sets of LITTELL'S LIVING AGE, which they offer at a large reduction from former prices.

As the Sets cannot be reprinted, the last opportunity is now offered not only to procure them cheaply, but to procure them at all.

The last number of the year 1872 completed the Fourth Series, and the One Hundred and lifteenth Volume, from the beginning of the publication. The regular price of volumes has been, in numbers, two dollars per volume, or, bound in cloth, three dollars per volume. The publishers now offer the Complete Sets (115 volumes), as follows:— .

In numbers, or sheets, ready for binding, at one-half the subscription price, viz: $1.00 per volume; or, bound in black cloth, gilt backs, at $1.75 per volume. )

A few surplus Sets of the First Series (36 volumes), and of the Second Series CG volumes), remain, which will be sold separately, at the same rate, if desired. None of the Third or Fourth Series can be sold separately, and the publishers can no longer supply any odd volumes, or numbers, published prior to Jan’y 1, 1868. A few of the Sets of the First Series, only, are bunnd in red leather backs, cloth sides, which will be sold to those preferring them to the cloth bound sets, at the same rate per volume. With this exception, those desiring a leather, or half leather binding, should purchase the numbers and have them bound in such style as they may prefer.

It is hardly necessary to say to those acquainted with the work, that the same amount of such valuable reading cannot otherwise be purchased with three times the money for which it is here offered ; and while this reduction in price places Sets within the reach of individuals possessing or forining private libraries, the attention of those interested in State, City, Town, College or School Libraries, is particularly called to this last opportunity of supplying their shelves with a complete work which it is believed no library in the country can (under this offer) afford to be without.

Applications for Sets should be made immediately.

When packing boxes are necessary in forwarding Sets, the cost of the boxes will be added to the bill.

A WINTER WEDDING.

Did never season fall so glad (At Chiselhurst Church, January 9, 1873.)

As that, before our corn was stored

(And now himself is reaped, and set BY THE AUTHOR op"JOHN HALIFAX, GENTLEMAN.”

Safe in the garner of the Lord) ?
It fled away in a clang of bells,

God knows how fair a face can show
Marriage bells,

Flush'd in the golden evening's glow.
On the wings of the blast that sinks and swells;
That bold, weak, fate-struck, suffering soul, I mind the day the news was told,
Whom Christ wash clean, and God make whole; And how the village heard the tale, -
And we stand in the light of two happy faces, Our manhood with a lusty shout,
Two happy hearts whom our heart embraces; Our women with a silence pale;
And we hear the peaceful organ's sound,

How one by one they wended down
And the angry storm sweeps harmless round: That pathway to the distant town.
Blessed is the bridegroom though the heav-
ens are dun;

For me, I had none closely near
Blessed is the bride whom no sun shines on. To send forth proudly there to die;

Only this playmate, and you know
Mayhap, some wandering angels say,

We were no lovers, he and I:
Stop and say,

And yet methinks I too was pale
As through the gloom they carry away

At telling of yon woeful tale.
That bodiless spirit to Him who knows -
He only — whither the spirit goes;

I mind the last long look he gave
“God give them all that the dead man lacked Just as he turned him from the door,
(As men dare judge him) in thought, word, act; My hand was throbbing from his touch-
Deny them all that to him was given,

Poor hand that throbbeth never more! Lest earth's doors opened, shut doors of heav Look in my eyes — this cheek is dry,

We were but friends to say good-bye. Blessed is the bridegroom without crown or land;

Now the night cometh - I shall sleep; Blessed is the bride with the ring on her hand. And he too sleepeth far away;

My dreams may picture me a face
Peal, ye joy-bells, peal through the rain,

Turned patient up to wait the day:
Blinding rain;

Sleep sweet upon the blood-stain'd sod,
God makes happiness, God makes pain,

Dear playmate, that has gone to God! Summer and winter a good tree grows,

Good Words.

C. C. FRASER-TYTLER A strong soul strengthens through weal and

woes. “Be not afraid,” says the wild, sobbing wind; “ Weep,” sigh the clouds, “but the blue is behind.”

BRAMBLEBERRIES. Blessed is the bridegroom under shower or sun,

Two KINDS OF DISCONTENT. Blessed is the bride whom love's light shines

A BASE and selfish discontent
on.

From hell is sent;
A noble discontent is given
Direct from heaven;

That, cowardice and low desire
AFTER THE WAR.

Fill with unrest;
THEY took him at that pleasant time

This, the soul's longings that aspire When summer falleth, and the corn,

To find the Best. And now the places where he stood

Peer dimly through the misty morn; The hillock where the roses blow

| TO AN ANGEL PICTURED LOOKING THROUGH Hath never roses now to show.

THE SKY. The pathway to the distanť town,

High Creature, watching twirl'd As ever, windeth low and high;

This cloudy world, And yet methinks it wears a look

See, for a seven times seven It wore not in the days gone by :

Refulgent Ileaven, Maybe it is I wait to catch

What belts of hope and fear No footstep, and no lifted latch.

Involve our sphere,

Deep gloom, with fitful flash; Beside the window in the gloam

And be not rash I stand as I have stood before;

In blame, lest One discern I cannot sew, the light is done,

Thy need to learn Nor is there need to ope the door;

How man's faint orison For he that used to come, they say,

Strives to His Throne. Has travelled on another way.
