The Ministry of Grief. Experience has decided that the early morning air is much more inspiring and vigorous than the evening. What is the law ? Is not the atmosphere, like all other substances and tissues, spoiled of its energy by the action of light and heat ? Does it not, like the vegetable and animal kingdoms, require rest ? After a night's rest it is recruited and young again. Joy fatigues the spirit in the same way, which requires rest from delight no less than the body requires rest from labour. Gripf, like night, is salutary. It cools down the soul, by putting out its feverish fires; and if it oppresses her, it also compresses her energies. The load once gone, she will go forth with greater buoyancy to new pleasures. The night of death is a wise .and merciful conclusion to the excitement of mortal life; with a calm, beautiful, wondrous strength, the regenerate spirit enters upon its new life. JOHN PULSFORD.
