Though it .ued and drtaced, Ihoujjh it jured by (Ires and eaithtiuukeH, Ootb and Vandal barbaria *, the it and Portico consisting o f nearly 11KI0 years ago. Its 110 feet long and 4t feet deep 16 magnificent columns, each colnmn a sin- gle block of granite 5 feet in diameter and 40 feet high, with capitals and bases of white marble, has been admired for agts. Let us enter through tho great marble doorway. Tuoso large bronze doors once opened to ftdnJt Roman Senators and Emper- ors. Within we find a vast circular room. Beneath our feet is liie]inarble pavement once trodden by tho great Ctcsars as they came to devotio rhcad in tlio im whole Temple, summit of the d e heathen divinity, jnse dome that covers A circular opening in iic admitH all tho light the the the building hi»s, and that is ample. Pro' ion in made lor draining off the water that falls through this opening upon tho marble floor below. The Pantheon was built by Pagans, and from the time of Augustus to that of Constantine, it wan a heathen temple. Thero ere two tiers of recesses or niches in the wall, once, probably, filled with images of Pagan deities. From the marble altars beneath these images onee rose the Inceuso offered to Uol gods.— At those altars I saw worshipers, but they worshiped Mary or Jesus instead of Jupiter, for, moro than a thousand years »go, the Pantheon was cleansed from Its heathen idola. In A. D. 608, Pope Boniface IV, dedicated this old temple to tho Virgin Mary, and since then Romish parsons have taken the place of heathen priests, and prayers to saints have superceeded prayers to idols.— Now masses are said, and indulgences givon, in that old Pagan place of worship. Over the bronze doors I read: Indulgences, Plena- ry, Daily, and Perpetual, for the liviug and the Dead. Behind the great altar is all that is mortal of Raphael, the celebrated Painter. On • marble slab arc inscribed these words:— \Rafaello Sanzio Natus cat, Mar. 8th, 1483 ; Obiit, Ap. 7th, 1520: 37 aet.' 1 As we pass out let us stop in the vestibule, nd read the Latin inscription, which tells us >ok the bronze, from that Pope Urban VIII the roof of the Pantheon, and melted some to apostles for thechi and some of it into cunaou I felt, my day's work must be finished. I drew nearer tho lire, took up my basket of , r ork. Thero lay garment after garment, Iready threadbare and worn. That must e mended before I retired, The cold ,-eather was coming on, and us tliat increaa- il, I must double my dilligem.T; for no cloth- >K could be bought for the little onca for a after ii the old u ititch taken. Then there was washing, ironing, cooking, house to be put In order, baby to lend; all, to be done with this one pair of hands, already tiret 1 . out. \Oh dear!\ said I, surely, \wo- nan's work is norer done.\ How can I ev- ivor accomplish so much! Then came copious shower of twkrg. I gave up in despair and Bought my room. Finding husband and children Bleeping all quietly, and BO comfortably in their clean clothes, made clean by these tired hands, I went to bed, too tired, (I thought,) to commend my- self to Him who careth for us. Husband sleeps on soundly, confident that wifo, (who lias nothing to do but to take care of the and children,) will wake in season to get Ms breakfast, which must be in oeason; for ho is a mechanic, aud works ten hours in wenty-four. Baby cries every half hour, and when daylight comos, I awaken unrefreshed.— Creeping carefully from my bed, I kindle a fire, and hurry to get tho breakfast before baby awnkes. But, as bad luck would have it, the baby soon wakes, and husband says, \do wife, take this child, so lea n take a littlo morning nap.\ The child is taken up, washed, and dressed. The other children rry up, all eager for breakfast, husband m gets up, and all aro ready for the mor- ning meal. Husband smiles, • and says, ifc, I wish you would get ma up a little Her to-morrow morning.\ Smiles, and thinks himself a model husband. Never ibles himself to make the children mind - on, no; men ought not to bo troubled with such littlo things as governing a family of ihildren. Eats his meal and goes out. I comes \the tug of war.\ 'Tis almost school time, Johnny must be washed and combed, ready for school; cries, \Oh mother, don't make me go to school this cold day. Clara must have a clean dress, apron, and stock- ings, her hair combed, shoes tied, hood and cloak put on. Meanwhile, baby screams, and all is confusion. Finally, after some scolding, and some coaxing, Johnny U per- md though kind, sympathy wa* not a part >f hu nature. And should I blame hhri, he father of my children ? Ah, no; I would itruggle on. But, oh, how can I endure all his work, and I so tired? Again I find re- ief in tears. Oh, Hji! I evo r flnd re9t? _ There comes a passage to my rfiirid, long since forgotten. \There rauaineth a rest ar those who love (iod.\ Surely that was >r me, for did I not love Uod ? What U liis promised rest ? Tho answer comes Ui \y heart, \rfst io Jesus.\ Ah, yog, this est is mine, and wiied I haye rout in Jesus, iy burden will bo ligfct. I afose froni my chair, kneeledj And poured out toy soul to God in prayer, •fhett I p-rdrfflsed to this* more fudy than I had ever done, to no?er cease pleading till God in mercy had brought my husband to a kaowlegde of the trtftli iri Him. I arose, a calm inward peace tiad ta- ken possession of me. I alep-t a 1 calm, peaceful sleep. Even baby was fetter ua- tared, and all seemed peaceful wlieri I awoke; From that hour, I trusted in God. 'Twad half way, formal religion, bnt a life b> th.

We enter Koine, by tho/'Portadel Popolo,\ (the gate of the ptople.) This gate opons Into the -'Piazza del Popolo,\ a spacious square, in the centre of which rises an Egyptian Obelisk, nearly 80 feet in height. From this square radiate the principal streets of the city. The \Corso running from the del Popolo to the Capitol, is the finest street in Rome. 'Piazza di Spagna,\ is the quarter of Hotels. There you will find English, and American Bankors. From there, by a long flight of stairs, you go up on \Pincian Hill,\ the great promenade of Rome. This hill Is L delightful place in summer, and in fact at Jmost all times of year, for in Rome \Do- icmber'i as pleasant as May.\ On the 2d day of last December, I found the gardens and blooming. In midsummer the heat Is oppressive- Then there are few s in.the city, and many of the in- habitants leave for u Ptison consists ot two subterraucni 'r duugcons, one below the other. Ai with a lighted lamp conducted u middle of the floor Is a clrculur opening just largo enough for a human body to pass through. This, for ages, was tho only open- ing to the lower dungeon, and through it prisoners were passed. In modem times a stairway has been cut around through tho rock from the upper to the lower prison. Following our guido, wo went into tho dungeon below and found it 12 feet deep and 20 feet in diameter. No light of suu, moon, r stars, has over penetrated that dark, cold, damp, gloomy place. There Jugurtha the Africi starvi Monarch was thrown and left to in the darkness alone. In that dun- geon the accomplices of Cataline the conspira- tor wero strangled by order of Cicero.— There \Sejanus another Roman conspirator was choked to death. But the chief interest of the plao« lies in lenco. Baby goes to sleep, husband to work, children to school. I shall have u good time after my dishes are washed to do BOUIO mending, said I.

It brought vividly to my re- ibrancc tho past—tho day when I learn- ed the art of cheerfulness—and for the ben- efit of others, I write it. My story begins on a dull and cheerless December night.— After a day of toil and care, uiy thoughts seemed iu perfect unison with nature. I looltcd out upon tho vast sheet of snow which lay around my dwelling, and felt, or tried to feel, thankful to the Great Giver for all tho blessings I was receiving from His hand. I seated myself and tried to feel thunkful for.my pleasant, though Wood Kavo Troughs. MOK BALK IIV lble —pleasant to mo because i My husband and thero, and I had exhaustod all my strength of mind and body trying, with my scanty rely, thought I, she shall never know how destitute we are for clothing. Soon the children come. Oh, di must hurry to make biscuit, cake, and np- le sauce for tea. The baby cries, but no matter, everything must be ready when hus- band comes. Busy hands can accompliah a great deal ln % little while, and when hus- band comes, all Is ready for supper. Sits and says, \Wife everything looks pleasant and cheerful, excepting yourself. Why can't you smile and look a little ,les! gloomy?\ The tears fill my eyes, I cannoi ust myself to speak. The meal Is done, children are put to bed, baby to sleep, dishes washed, a little prepa- at ion mado for breakfast. Tho basket ol nending is brought out, and I commence ta vork with a will. Husband says, \come vlfe, put by that work. You are growing >ld, by sitting op,and all lo no purpose. ] im sure, you cant have mucii to do all day, vliy don't you mend in the day time?\ Hus- band goes to bed and to sleep. Oh, ( how lesolate Is my heart, as I sit there, and take stitch after stlch, till after midnight. My noughts ran on, away Ii vas dark—no bright spot8. I look back ipon tho past. Thero I found a fc ariglit spoti. I Deemed to live over again .hose tlayi of happiness. How vividly ;o my mind the first years of my m« lifo, when husband spoke encouraging words. But now, when I so much need encouraging he thiuks they uro useless, thinks it would not bo manly to itnprint a kiss upon a forehead already wrinkled with care. I tired, worn, and discouraged.
