Vio Sect In Heaven.
Talking of secta till lato ono eve,
Of tho various doctrines the saints believe,
That night I stood, in a troubled dream,
By the side of a darkly flowing stream,
And a "Churchman" down to the river
* carno, j
When I heard a strange voice call his
"Good Father, stop; when you cross this
You must leave your robes on tho other
But the aged father did not mind.
And bis long gown floated out behind.
As down to tho stream his way he took,
His pale hands clasping a gilt-edged book.
"I'm bound for Heaven, and wucn I am
I Bhafl want my Book of Common Prayer;
And t hougli I put on a starry crown,
I shall leel quite lost without my gown."
Then he fixed his eyes on tho shining
But his gown was heavy, and held him
And tho poor old father tried in vain,
A single stop in the fioodtfo gain.
I saw him again on the other side.
But his silk gown floated on the tide;
And no one asked in that blissful spot,
"Whether ho belonged to "the ?burch" or
Then down to tho rivor a Quaker strayed,
His dress of a sober lino was made;
"My coat and my hat must bo all of gray,
I cannot go any other way."
Then he buttoned his coat straight up to
And staidly, solemnly waded in;
And his broad-brimmed hat he pulled
Over his forehead BO cold and white.
But a strong wind carried away his hat; \
A moment be silently Bighed over that,
And then, as ho gazed on tho farther shoro,
The coat Blipped off, and was seen no moro.
As ho entered Heaven, his suit of gray
Went quietly floating away, away;
And none of the angels questioned him
About tho width of hie heaver's brim.
Next came Dr. Watts, with a bundlo of
Tied nicely up in II?B aged arms,
And hymns"as many-a rory nico thing
That tho pooplo in Heaven "all around"
But I thought that ho heaved an anxious
As ho saw that tho river ran broad and
And looked rather surprised, as ono by ono
The psalms and hymns in tho wa vos went
And after him, with his M ss.,
Came Wesley, tho pattern of all godliness;
But he cried, "Dear mo, what shall I do?
The water has soaked them through and
And there on tho river, far and wido.
Away they went down the swollen tide;
And the saint, astonished, went through
Without his manuscripts, up to tho throne.
When gravely walking, two saints by
Down to tho stream together came;
But as they stopped at the river's brink,
I saw one saint from tho other shrink.
"Springled or plunged, may I ask you,
How you attained to life's great end?"
"Thus, with a few drops on my brow."
"But I have been dipped, as you'B see me
And I really think it will hardly do,
As I'm 'closo communion,' to cross with
You're hound, I know, to tho realms of
Bot you must go that way, and PU go
Then straightway plunging, with all his
Away to.tho loft-his friend to the right
Apart they wont from tho world of sin,
But at last together they entered in.
And now, when tho rivor was rolling on,
A Presbyterian Church went down;
Of women there seemed an innumerable
But the men I could count as thoy passed
And concerning tho road they could never
The Old or tho Now way, which could it be,
Nor ever a moment paused to think
That both would lead to tho river's brink;
And a sound of murmuring, long and loud,
Came ever up from tho m?ving crowd,
"Yon are in the Old way, and I'm in tho
That ?B tho false and this is tho truoj"
Or, "I'm in the Old way, and you're in the
That is the false and this is the true."
But the brethren only seemed to speak;
Modest tho sisters walked, and meek;
And if over one of them chanced to say,
What troubles she mot with on the way.
How she longed to pass to the other Bide,
Nor feared to oross o'er the swelling tide,
A voice arose from the brethren then;
"Lot no one speak but the 'holy men,'
For have ye not heard the words of Paul,
'Oh,let tho women keep silence all.'"
I watched them long in my curious dream,
TiB they stood by the borders of tho
Then, just as I thought, the twowaysmet,
But all the brethren were talking yet,
And would talk on, till the heavenly tide
Carried thom over, eido by uido;
Sido by sido-for tho way was ono
Tho toilsome journey of lifo was done;
And all who in Christ, tho Saviour, died,
Came out aliko on tho other side;
No forms, or crosses, or books had they,
No gowns of Bilk, or suits of gray.
No creeds to guido them, or "MSS.,"
For all had put on Christ's righteousnces.
A young man, from Vermont, who
went out on a sailing party, last
?week, and became a victim to sea?
sickness, describes tho sensation thus:
"Tho first hour I was afraid I should
die, and the second I was afraid I
shouldn't." He had about tho right
idea of it."
An elderly maiden, who had suf?

Pounding ihn Gi ncc of Oort Into Him.
We have read and heard a good
many sermons, but tho most forcible
of them all is that which wo give
below, preached by a young Metho?
dist itinerant, somewhere up in the
Cumberland Mountains. W*e take it
from a Mississippi exchange, and
cannot vouch for tho truth of it. It
is good enough to bo tr ne:
When this old hat was new, there
was a-gap in Cumberland Mountains,
which is most likely there now.
There lived right in the gap a black?
smith, who was an infidel, a man of
education, wielding a powerful influ?
ence over the minds of men nrouud
him, was a potent enemy of Chris?
tianity, and made it his particular
business to whip every minister who
attempted to pass through the gap.
At an annual conference of the
Methodist Churoh, the appointed to
this circuit refused to accept of his
work; another was appointed, and
another, and they all declined. At
length, tho Bishop rose and asked if
there was any minister in conference
who had moral courage nud faith in
Christ sufficient to encounter this
monster. A young man responded:
"Here I am-send me."
Ministers and presiding elders went
to their various appointments.
The day arrived when young Bow?
den was to fill his finit appointment,
about two miles from the gap. Tho
blacksmith, expecting rare sport,
dismissed his striker, and Renting
himself by a tree at the road-side,
was reading Tom Paine, when he
heard a man approaching, singing, in
a voice that echoed among tho crags
"How happy are they who their Saviour
The smith inquired if ho was that
d-d Methodist preacher sent to this
Bowden replied that he was a Me?
thodist preacher, and that ho was ap?
pointed to that circuit.
"Have you not heard," said the
smith, "that I whip all disturbers of
the peace that pass this way?"
'I have, sir, been informed that
you aro very severe on ministers, the
servants of Christ."
"Yes," said he, "and I would
pound tho ground with your Christ
if he were to offer to preach in this
neighborhood. I make you this pro?
position," said tho smith. "Promise
me three things: 1. Renounce this
circuit. 2. Burn up your Bible. 3.
That you will read Tom Paine, which
I here offer you."
Bowden replied that he could not
comply with his demand.
"Then,"said thesmith, "dismount
and try your hand at pugilistics."
Bowden replied that the coat ho
wore was presented by some ladies,
and not wishing to soil or tear it, he
hoped he would be allowed to pull it
The request was granted. He first
drew out his right arm, and, as his
right hand saw the light, he dealt
tho smith such a blow that it felled
him heavily to the ground.
Bowden pounced upon him with
the ferocity of a tiger, inflicting
blow aftor blow in such rapid succes?
sion that the smith cried out lustily,
"When the preacher fonnd out that
he had tho young inquirer entirely
under his control, he said to him
that he would mako bin a proposi?
"1st. Join him in singing,
'How happy aro they who their Saviour
'*2d. Promise to burn up Tom
"3d. Promise to read a Bible that
I offer yon every day.
"4th. That you go and hear me
preach to-day, and regularly here?
A few moro arguments dealt heavily
into his ribs induced bim to accept
numbers three and four, but he could
not appear before his neighbors a
whipped cur, with bis face black and
blue, and as for singing, tho only
music he had ever made was with a
jews-harp and his trip hammer.
Tho preacher pounded his penitent
again until ho agreed to try and fol?
low him in singing, if ho would lead.
When the singing was ended, a few
moro blows induced him to go with
him to church.
Curiosity was rifo to learn why the
blacksmith should be at a meeting, as
also for the altered condition of his
Faithful to his promise, tho black?
smith daily read his Bible, regularly
attended meeting, and early became
a convert to christianity, and not un?
til he joined the church was revealed
an account of tho first meeting with
Finally, thc affair was spoken of,
and at the next conference the preach?
er was asked for tho truth of the mat?
ter, and with tears in his eyes, he ex?
claimed: "My dear brethren, it ap?
peared, tho only argument I could
successfully use, and I did indeed
pound the grace of God into him."
