strange group this, one may say. It ,
is nevertheless, no more Mrange than true.
The living picturc 1ms been recently visi-!
ble. .May not one bo allowed to delinentc '(
From the origin of Methodism until now,
it has bcou rogarded (cHpecially so by the
best authorities and general usages of the
Methodist Cliiiroh,') not only n violation j
of the rules of the Church, hut n violation j
?>r the spirit of tho Gospel of Chriot, for tho '
members <?f said Church to patronize the !
circus, tho dancing-school, or the ball-room. I
And oven those not of tho Church have!
entertained tho cmno view of this subject. J
To give an inntnucc : I once knew the j
agent going in advxnco of the show to .set i
up liand bilLs, and seouro entertainment,
on reaching the village where I then lived,
to call at 0110 of the hotels to make the nee-1
e,ssary arrangements. Un hearing the 1
terms, objections were rained. The landlord
told him to go to the other hotel?he replied
with nnoath, " thoy arc all Methodists there."
This man with all his sin upon him!?
whose only business was to create an excitement
among the people by his advertisements
nuil then filch from them their money (for often
not more than half that is advertised is
really exhibited,) knew that the Methodist
Church was opposed to his calling.
When tho day o*ir.e, I was glad to see
Methodists sustain their character, by stand
mg tuooi irom suoli aninkot damning shin.
Would that I could say the eauio for those
who but recently forfot their vowh to God and
were found thronging the circus !
True, souio say tlicy to ?ee the animals.
The whole case considered, we think this no
valid excuse?for ovrry one possoaoed of perception

Mine points ?
When, in nil our history, did tl.o rules and
working* of Methodism sanction dancing?
Never for once. We are not going to discuss
the doubtful propriety of suffering the children
nud young \ isitors to danco to the note
of the violin or pi; no in the parlor 1 We are
not going to discuss the liability of forming
there a taste for more exciting scenes! l)o
you as parents doubt? Then avoid the evil!
Hark! Ilark ! tho sound of music and dancing
is heard ! But where? O! have von not !
heard? Heard what? We have a dancing
school and some of the Methodists are sending
their children ! Now, can this be so?
It is surely a violation of the rules of their
rnnrou ior juetiuxiiet* to send their children
to the dancing school! nnd it is a violation
of tho spirit of the Gospel also. And a few
young Methodists have Leon influenced to go !
They have cortainlv gono at a very great sacrifice
of thoir christian character!
These tilings are so. and some endenvor
to mnintain that it is useful and necessary,
as it prepares young people to appear in society.
Arc \vc dependent upon some French
dancing master, or any other, to prepare our
children to appear to advantage? No! Let
thorn he instructed in the rules of propriety
of course?but not by a dancing master.
j>iu, above nil, lot them l>o instructed in
tho " knowledge and love of God." This will
prepare tlicm to appear to iho very bent advantage?"None
can be.truly great who are not
truly good." Who would bo willing to go
from the merry dn ice to thejudgment seat of
Christ? With the love of God in the soul,
the timid female can meet death with a smile.
In the village of ?. some short time
since (if we are rightly informed,) at least
five or six hundred dollars were naid to the
dancing master for aorrice rennered?Query?what
will they give this year for the support
of missions among the destitute, in order
thnt souls may l?e prepared to appear
"clad in white," with the redeemed?
Having learned to dance at the school, the
ball-room must bo frequented to display tbo
talont for dancing. The tendency of such I
exercises is to * "'I?both pn.iitral or physical
and moral. Natural evil is whatever may be
opposed to the perfection of a natural being?
an'blindness, disease, death, etc. Moral evil
is tho act of a moral agent, in violation of tbo
rule that determines the quality of his action
that ml* is the "law of the Lord/' None
chii deny tliat tho sudden transition from the
beat and excitement of the ball-rooni into
cool, dump night nil*, lion brought ou d'ueneo
