SUNDAY AT HOME.

The death is reported of Mrs Cousin. authoress of a number of hymns, including the well-known ‘ ‘in Immanuel's Land." As a specimen of one of Mrs Cousin’s less known hymns, the British Weekly quotes ; THE DOUBLE SEARCH. ‘There are two gone out on the starless wild— Gone out ’neath the desert night : Earth’s sad and weary, and homeless child. And Heaven’s fair Lord of Light. And one is seeking, forlorn and blind. Can give to his loss no name ; But the other knows well what he stoops to find — Knows well what he comes to claim. Though the hills are dark, though the torrents roll, By each must his path be trod ; . Both seek, for the Saviour has lost ■the soul. And the soifl has lost it's God/ That piteous cry and that tender call Come each from a yearning heart ; Through storm and stillness they rise and fall. And thej r seem not far apart. can hoar the sound of their nearing feet By a sure attraction drawn ; Those night-long seekers shall timely meet As the darkness dies in the dawn.’
