HE last day of another year has gone, its days are past-its waters that have run so tempestuously in many a channel, and over buried wrecks and hearts' hopes buried with them,

lie still and calm over all the memorial of the past-and things that were seem as if they never had been. The past year has rolled its waters over graves we did not think would have opened so soon; over wrecks we did not expect would be shattered so quickly; over scenes and sorrows, trials and bereavements, and hidden griefs too big for tears and too solemn for expression.

Who would have thought that its waves would have covered the young wife, looking forward with joy to the prospect of a new love in connection with a new life, yet they had rolled but half their allotted number ere she had found a grave, and left her babe to another's care. To some it was a year of anxious thoughts, terrible uncertainty, painful losses-to others a year of sore separations-of wounds that a lifetime will not heal, sorrows that the remedial hand of time will not be able to mitigate. Footfalls, that were heard like glad music in domestic thresholds, will be


heard no more; Christmas congratulations, that were so sweet, will be felt no more in this world; plans that were laid are left unfinished-enterprises are left stifled in their birth. Buds, that gave promise of bright flowers, are blasted; flowers, that gave promise of rich fruit, are withered. Our earth, our country, our homes, are disenchanted of half their beauty, because some who were near and dear, have passed away like shadows from the dial-plate of time; and the place that knew them once shall know them no more for ever. Faces, on whom other days opened with all the brightness of manhood, begin now to be furrowed with years-tresses that were ravenblack begin to be thinned and silvered. We are, every one, growing older-may we all be nearing eternal joy!
