SPIRIT GLORY.

BY THE JUNIOR EDITOR.

. (In continuation.) In all these spheres--physical, mental and moral-contemplating the Falls of Niagara, King Richard III. or the Martyr at the Stake, an analogous feeling of pleasing and dreadful enjoyment thrills through, and takes possession of man.

These qualities of beauty, brilliancy and grandeur, and their responsive feelings: love, alarm and awe, which are experienced in sensuous life, are also experienced in the high life of the spirit nature. And they constitute the chief elements of Spirit Glory.

But while passing from the perception of the worldly, to that of the spirit nature, let us take notice of the customary observations and the ordinary expressions used in common conversation.

Gentleness acts with a winning charm in awakening the most pleasing emotions, and attracting the feelings of the person, on whom it acts, with a mysterious power. Every one owns this power. This grace of gentleness is felt throughout inanimate nature, as one views the gently
