Among the annual publications of the season, the fol
lowing pages may find perhaps many readers to whom
subjects of a lighter and less sacred character would not
be so acceptable. To such readers they are offered, by
one who does not lightly value the approbation of the
wise and good among his Christian brethren.
St. Peter's, Chester.
BY THE REV. CHARLES B. TAYLER.
“And there was Mary Magdalene and the other Mary sitting over against the
sepulchre.”—Matt. xxvii. 61.
What of the night ?—The angry heavens are calm,
What of the night ?-In the soft spreading gloom,
of their loved Lord lies sleeping: The conflict and the agony are past, And in that quiet grave the Sufferer rests at last.
