There was a time when father quaff’d
The soul-destroying drink,

There was a time when father stood bad
Upon perdition's brink;

But God be thank'd he's wiser grown, 3

Hath signed the pledge, and now
No longer pallor marks his cheek,
Nor frenzy burns his brow.

Oh ! heavenly change !-at his approach,

1 Now, joy thrills through our hearts; Sweet smiles light mother's countenance,

1 Though oft a tear-drop starts;

She meets him at the threshold now,

And lip to lip is prest;
Kind words are breath'd in fondest tones,

And all is bright and blest.

Each sabbath morning with the sun,

He rises to prepare
Himself, and early leads us to ?

God's saered house of pray'r;
And as he supplicating kneels,

I often hear him say,
"Almighty, turn the drunkard's heart,

0! teach him, Lord, thy way.”

ONE OF OUR POETS. 32 We have before us a neat volume entitled “ Hillocks' Thoughts in Rhymes with an Introductory Sketch by the Rer. George Gilfillan." Like many of our best Temperance publications, it comes to us through Mr. W. Tweedie, and will form a valuable contribution to the poetry of our movement. The Life of Mr. Hillocks is so admirably written by the Rev. George Gilfillan, that we purpose enriching our pages with it—a freedom, for which (if necessary) we will humbly crave the pardon of that great writer Join on. 1. * Oor friend," says Mr. Gilfillan, was born at Dundee in the very hamblest position of life.? His father was a man-of-war's man, who, owing to some injuries inflicted on him by his co-mates 'or captain, deserted, and had the R. standing against his name, and serving as a pretext for not granting him a pension, although he had returned and paid the penalty previous to the peace. His mother was an excellent and beautiful person, who died when James was twenty-one days. The boy was born on the 7th of April, bot, in these non-registering days, the year was not marked, and is now irrecoverably lost. The loss of his moother was his first misfortune. The second was his being put under the care of a wet nurse, who treated Irim very iH; stunting his stature, and enfeebling his constitution by improper diet, pernicious drugs, and cruel inattention. Some time after, the father of the 'mitherless bairn,' married again. The poor child was early set to work, so early, he says, that the feet of the pirn-wheel had to be cut that he might be able to drivé it; and he was often thus employed from four in the morning to eleven at night, his father being engaged the while in the thankless - work of Weaving m behalf of his family By-and-bye he was sent to school. He #ent in joy and hope, but found his master a tyrant, one ou whose face he saygıča smile would have added to the wonders of the world. Under his reign of terror" he spent three months, and then, chiefly from inability to purchase the necessary books, was sent to the loom. He enjoyed, however, opportunities of attending Sabbath Schools, and justly regards iherhi as having materially benefited him in this early days. 3.1
