IDEAS OF C oAoE AND CO wAaDICF
Courage and Cotverdice were not ilowd
until -after Adam's-fatbu the latte'iri,
for Mloses, says Gene. '9'at Adiidhhi
from his Creator amongst the ireia offtlie
garden, aller he had .eaten of the forbidi
den fruit," and assigued as a reso'n 'se :o
doing, that he was afraid,. Fear tchet
fore, appears to be connecteri totra:Isgref
sion, and as Adam begat in iis-owtn Jile
nebss; every dgscendant 'of him, js;byria
ture, a coward: It is a well' known fact:
that every infant isteasily 'terrified, whih
is no blighi testibnouy qf the truth oif that
scripture, viz: I was afraid.. Before the
erusifixion of our Lord, his Discipl.Qs said,
that though jhey should die. with him, yet
would fthuv not deny him; but whende
was betrayed they all forsook him and
led, and Peter denied him with an oatih
bur Lord's Deciples, prior to thedayo.d
Peuticost, were not oinly cowari'ly ;ut
:ruel also, for i hen on their way to Jeru
taleim, as they arrived st '$amtaria, and
were refused iodgings, they requested ir
Lord to call down fire from Hearedn.d
)n tamaria, but he rebuked them -in
hese words, "The sod of titan caine not'
o destroy men's lives, but to safo tfierrnJ
.oil ardice and cruelty result frotn mai's
all. But from the day .of Penticost, on
vhich they were truly :onverted, the De.
:iples were no-longor susceptible of fear..
Jowardice or cruelty. for there is neither
'ear nor cruelty in God. neither io those
ossessing his spirit. Bitt, it is sai.d that
ufidels possess no fear, for it is written;
here is no fear of God before their eyes ;
>ut to inform the reader, we say it is-be
ause the God of this world has blinded
heir eyes io a sense of thei danger; bat

roops n ith courage at Waterloo, in, per
taps the following words : We have seven
y live thousand tmen in the field, eaeh as
;ood as any Britisi 'soldier, and any rwo
jftihe allied powers. -The British. then,
tad but thirty thousand of their own troops
ad forty thousand of the allied powers,
which forty thousand* were 'equal only
(igreeable to IHenaparte's assertion) to
wenly thousand French, consequently thI-,
thirty thousand Britons had to contend
with fifty five thousand French, which.
must have created in the French, hopes
)f certain victory and courage accordingly.
Fear, courage, or caution, which-soever
'he reader miay be' pleased to turnm it, was
the result of transgression, and intended to
prepare mlan to shun danger auJ death, to
which he then became liable ; but more
especially to flee the wrath to come, for
it is writtan: "The fear of the Lord is the
beioing of wisduon." Were it not for
fear the Devil's title ti the human race
would he good ; is not courage thou in I'al
len man, the conseqluence of a corrupt ed-'
uration, an invention of Satan, designed
to counteract fear or caution, and blind~ild
man to a sense of his danger that hiemay
drive them into the hottomless pit, as a
General, by blindf'olding his cavalry hor
ses, drives them, not seeing'their danger,
on the destructive linmes of a hostile infan
try. -Courage is not hereditary, fear is,
for Adam begat in liis own likeness, be
ing a coward. Therefore no individual
ptossesses courage except him who is born
of God;t who possesses perfect love ; (the
imnage of Godl) which casts out all f'ear,
is a means of' man's sailvaiou; without
which, as a free agent, he could not he

could the thtunderings of Sinai have on tho

Wlas niot tman by nature a coward, the

beeni elected. Simmons and Mangumn will
be succeeded by Whigs, and Archer by a
Democrat. Wonodbridge, of Michlgan,
