The Staubach is a fall of remarkable magnificence, seeming to leap from heaven; its glorious stream reminds one of the abounding mercy which in a mighty torrent descends from above. In the winter, when the cold is severe, the water freezes at the foot of the fall, and rises up in huge icicles like stalagmites, until it reaches the fall itself as though it sought to bind it in the same icy fetters. How like is this to the common conduct of men! Divine favors frozen by human ingratitude, are proudly lifted in rebellion against the God who gave them.
