From tho Virginia Contuctor.
Of all people in the world, those who pro
fess to lie the disciples of Christ should be
the most exemplary and circumspect in their
daily avocations. Recognized in Divine reve
lation as the salt of the tarth and light of
the world, and being the Representatives of
Him who is without spot or blemish, Chris
tians occupy a peculiarly prominent position
in society, from whence springs an intluence
that either tends to elevate the moral condi
tion of the human race, or else religion sus
tains a serious loss by causing those who have
never named the name of Christ to become
careless and indifferent as to the true merits
of redeeming grace.
Naturally prone to walk the paths of sin
and folly, no opportunity is lost by the man
of the world in scrutinizing the Christian's
conduct in order to detect some error by
which he may he justified in the course he
pursues. Yea, instead of perusing the Bible,
wherein he may learn the duties he owes to
God and man, invariably the professor of re
ligion is regarded by him as the exponent of
the Scriptures, as a guide to him in every
controverted point on morality and as a monu
ment of redeeming love.
Hence the responsibility of every member
of the church-and really it is an awful one.
Then, evidently, it is the indispensible duty
of every disciple of our Lord and Savior to
walk the narrow but pleasant path pointed
out in the Book of life, cultivate the Qhris
tian graces along the entire journey, remov
ing every obstacle, be it what it may, that
has the least tendency to clog the wheels of
the car of salvation, and thus, the Christian
would exert a powerful sway on the minds of
those among whom he may chance to move.
Religious principles are positively contagious
when properly enforced by sal4tary exam
pies, so well adapted are they to the interest
of fallen men. But, alas! idiscretion pre
vails to an alarming extent in the church.
At this juncture of our essay, readers, we
earnestly invoke your attention to one very
great IndTseretion on the part of the mem
bers of the church-the peculiar people of
God-that is the use of alcoho" liquors as a
beverage-alhuost as far back in the records
of antiquity as the history of man extends,
the use of ardent spirits is found to have
ministered to the baser. passions of the hu
oan soul, stirring up strife and ambition, in
citing to murders and all kinds of vice, con
sequently, operating very materially against
the transforming influence of Jehovah's just
and holy law.
Solomon, in the profundity of his wisdom
raised his warning voice against the use of
wine, because it was a mocker and a deceiver,
ruining the souls of men-and subsequent
history both of a profane and sacred char
acter, has proven incoutestibly tho truth of
his declaration. le was thoroughly versed
in nll the secret operations of the hunian
heart, he was acquainted with its frailties,
and he prescribed remedies for all of them.
But how few regard his admonitions. At the
commencement of the Christian era, intoxi
cation seems to have been a prevalent evil
among all classes of society, as the great
founder of the church was called a wine bib
ber by those who were inveterate enemies to
his doctrine. Coeval with the advent of the
Savior-heathen nations looked upon Bacchus
as the presiding deity at all of their banquets,
invoking him with incantations of a lewed
nature to inspire them with feelings of con
geniplity and cheerfulness. Wine, at that
time, and ever since, in addition to all of its
kindred liquids, has fired the sordid passions
of the soul, and has drawn a dark and dismal
veil across the way that leads to happiness
above-it suppresses the noblest aspirations
of the mind, and causes the inebriate to curse
the God that made him. Drunkenness is an
abomination in the .sight of the Lord, his
curse rests upon it everywhere. Some who
differ from usi may argue that the scriptures
declare we must be temperate in all things,
even in the use of alcoholic -liquids. Where
is arsenic? strychnine? and prussic acid, ad
a host of other deadly pisons in the same
' catalogue with alcohol . The reason you
don't tamper with arsenic you nre afraid of
it, but alcohol deceives you by inducing a
genial flow of spirits in your nervous system
for a moment or so, then it leaves you a vie
tinm to gloomy feeling and a morbid appetite.
If you intend to fulfil the scriptures as it re
gards temperance, according to your inter
pretation, you must not only be temperate
in the use of ardent spirits, but, in order to
be temperate in all things, you must not
repudiate strychnine, opium and prussic
acid, because these are certainly three thimgs.
Be consistent, we beseech you, for consis
tency is a jewel, especially in religions mat
t ers. Says Paul, " be ye f irm and st eadfast
in the doctrines I have taught you." Now,
to substantiate the grounds we occupy, we
observe that all alcoholic liquors are the re
sult of man's perverted ingenuity. Haed be
have plucked the grape from the vine in the
condition which the great chemist of nature
presented it to him--full of nutritment and
pleasant to the taste, sin and sorrow would
not have made such rapid strides o'er this
eccursed land-of ours, but., on the other hand,
n'en in possession of cool and reasonable
iijndls, would have been mnore susceptible to
thz'uenign influence of those divine truths
inl revelation, intended by the author of aill
goodness to raise his affections from the per
ishable things of this world to a bright sphere
where peace and comfort eternally reign.
Jnstead of going humbly into the Labratory
of Nature, eating and drinking what the uin
erring hand of the creator has prepared for
him, he is dissatisfied with the offerings of
an all-wise Being, subjects many of thema to
his rules of chemistry, and the result of
which, in the case of all vegetable matters,
containing starchy and sacharinte properties,
ia poison to both soul and body.
Alcohol is not found in an isolated state
anywhere within the vast domain of the veg
etable kingdom-hence it was never designed
by our Creator as beverage for a man. 1t
may be found in some of~ the ripe juicy fruits,
such as pear, peach, &c., but always so wisely
blended with the other ingredients by the
skillful chemist of nature so asa not to injure
any one who desire4 to ear sneh frtiit. More
over, it is t he restult of a put reia,,iive p.rncess
that takes place in the juices of' the fruit at
the time it becomes mature. Would man
allow these juices to take their natural
course, the little alcohol they contain would
soon result in the formation of those acids
peculiar to them, whether citric, malic, or
Alcohol is a medicine and poison too, all
medicines are poisons, so we should never
use them unless necessity calls for thetm
therefore no person is benefitted by the habit
ual use of ardent spirits. You might ransack
the archives of medicine frim the time of
4Esculapius to the present, and you would
find no evidence to sustain you.
Christian ! You are the moral standard of
nonic sinner in your neighborhood-he looks
to you for example-every sinner has his
christian. Will you tell him by your exam
ple that there is no danger in drinking mod
erately, when he attempts to follow you in
this respect, cannot control his appetite, and
falls over the precipice of destruction into
the abyss of woe. No doubt you are doing
good in many other respects, as a disciple of
the-meek and lowly Saviour, but if you drink
moderately, you are causing some one to
travel the broad and beaten read to death.
It is so; you just examine the relation you
sustain to your fellow men. How awful is
the Christian's responsibility-he may do
great good, and do more mischief to the
cause of religion than a host of sinners. If
you think it too great a sacrifice to give up
the bottle in order to teach your tellow mnn
sobriety, T point you to the bleeding lamb of
I od on the cross, and see how he sacrificed
his life to render you happy in all time to
come, and how can you think of sanctioning
the use of that fiery liquid which has retard
ed the progress of your Redeemer's kingdom
for so long a time, and is doing so much inju
ry to this country at present.
The time will soon be here when you wil
have to relinquish your right to mortal affairs,
anid then your deeds like a huge' mountain,
will appear before you-the judge of the
quick and the dead will then do you justice.
Now, 0 Christian, while you are this side
.,r th Jgrdan er death. the agent for him
who went about doing good, teach your fel
low men one important lesson, and that is to
stop using ardent. spirits as a beverage. iDay
after day they are alling in the grave-vic
tims to the Old Serpent of Intemperance.

Chriit in the Garden.
Christ e aving bequeathed it) his Church
t'e inestimable legacy of his own body and
blood, and instituted the great Passover of a
new covenant, went out. the saine evening
from Jerusalem, and entered the gardent of
Gethsemane, situated at the foot .of Mount
Olivet. Here it was that the conflict began
which ended only on Mount Galvary. As
the downfall and ruin of mankind had con
menced in a garden, so it was proper that
the recovery and redemption of mankind
should likewise commence in a garden. The
garden of Eden had been the first theatre of
sin. So the garden of Gethsemane bEcame
tho first stage of our Redeetner's passion.
Here his blessed soul underwont an exerucia
ting martyrdom, and was drowned in an
ocean of sorrows. Here his affectionate heart
was seized with strange convulsions of grief,
and almost torn asunder with fits of sadness.
Here the joy of angels, and the sweet coni
fort of all aflicted and distressed souls was
overwhelmed with so heavy a load of afflic
tion that he breathed forth the doleful com
plaint; " My soul is exceeding sorrowful even
unto death." Behold the Son of God pros
trate on the earth. le is confounded within
himself at the imputation of'our guilt. The
leprosy of our sins, which lie is covered, fills
him with horror. The enortnous weight of
our guilt produced the imost painful and in
tense agony; so much so, that even before
the hand of man had touched him, he melted
as it were by the fire of Divine wrath, so
that the sweat Tell from him like drops of
blood. We shudder at the account of his
sufferings given by the Evangelists, who tell
us that he prayed, once, twice, and even a
third time, that the cu' of his ailliction might
pass from him. And when his bitter trial
appioached, and all the powers of the Evil
One were let loose upon him, his heart so
sank that an angel was sent to strengthen
In the garden of Gethserane sin was tri
umphant. Holiness was abandoned even by
the Al-Holy. It was the hour of the- prince
of darkness. The Father had withdrawn his
consoling presence. The pitiless storm of
Divine wrath beat upon the soul of the suffer
ing Saviour in all its fury. Ile stood charged
with the collective guilt of Adam's fallen
race; and all the arrows of Almighty justice
flew at once to his heart. How fearful must
have been the pressure of that physical suf
fering which caused him to pray that. if it
were agreeable to the will of his Father, the
bitter cup night pass fron him. But this
could not be. As the repreaentative of a
guilty world, he nust trad the winepress of
God's wrath alone. There is no way of re
conciling these intense -sufferings of the im
maculate Son of God with the attributes of
the Mo.st Iligh upon the principles of the
Socinian, who utterly denies their vicarious
nature.. The agony in the garden is a knot
that nothing can untie, but the old doctrine
of our sin being really imnded to Christ,
and Christ being made a sin and a curse
In Lhe agoiy of Jesus we behold, then, the
true nature and the proper effects of sin.
" The wages of sin is deat h." Therefore his
"soul was exceedimg sorrowful even unto
death." We see here a sleaciinen .of that
"iudignation and wrath, tribulation and an
guish," w hich every soul of man would hav,
had to suffer, had he not become the sufferer
in our stead. Let us think of Gethsemaiie
as the place where Jesus bore the wrath < f
Jehovah, that we might be restored to his
smiles and miercy. As we mtournt over the
entrance of the devil into the Gardent of
Eden, and the dreadful fall of our fir.,t pa
rents, let us behold with joy the "sted of
the woman" wrestling with this base usurper
in the garden of Gethiseinane, that h,-~ n.ighti
enable us to crusb haim benecath our fe,:?.
German Reformed M:essenger.
Gon's MIERcy is so sweet that it mnahes all
his other attributes sweet. Hlolinaess without
mercy, and justice without miercy, wvere
dreadful. Though the clhildreni of Gotl:-re
tnder some clouds of affliction, yet the si n
of mercy is never rite out of sight. i aei's
justice reaches to the clouds; his tuaercy
reaches above the clouds. God's muercy i.,
like A aron's oil, which rested Riot on his haeadc,
but ran clown to the skirts of his garinetni.
So the golden oil of mercy dloth ilot re tipy, n
the head of a goodi parent, but is pojuredl an
his children, and so runs down "to the third
and fourth generation." W~Arson.
A PREciotus TRUmi.--Christ did not roun'
his converts by thousands, nor yet by~ h~un-i
dreds, nor yet by tens; but by un~its, .-aying.
" There is joy in the presence of the naig.'
of God over one sinner that repenteth.'' He
valued individuals; and yet at la.,t taball he
welcome his redeemned as an inumerable
multitude, whomi no man can nunmber.
