new feature, however, i-J, tlmt men cease
to be afraid, as they use to be, of the

on the contrary, hail them. They used
to be. in fear lest light from the stars,
Aould put out the tun of righteousness;
they used to bt. apprehensive lest the

of the chemist ; let it descend from the
bbservatoi y of the iisliouomcr: it will
, fall in with and not darken the truth of
toe go.-pel. Another interesting feature
is, that mind, genius, and talent are much
more appreciated in ilm present day,
under whatever guise, or garb, or de
nomination they appear. Galileo saved
hi life by recaining the conclusive in
ductions of science. Locke was ban
bhci from Oxfuid; Seidell was thrown
into the Tower ; Milton sold his eopy
wright of" Paradise Lot"for fire pound?
In contrast with this, it h only needful
to refer to the immense sums received
fur their vwitings by Scott, Dickens.
Macaulay, etc. Such is the force of real
genius, that it w ill publish itself, though
its po'scssor should he dumb, nnd com
mand the homage nf nil, while it ap
pear!, to be the willing servant of all.
Once it had no chance of emerging from
obscurity except by being tied to some
gioat patron s tail. Now, the noblest
patronage i fair opportunity. Mind i
admitted to be a component element of
true greatness. Coronets, prebends,
purple robes and lawn sleeves, M. A.'s
and D. D ' are more nnd more felt to be
mere- wrntipase ; while the foods ate
