My hold oven on this last straw Is sadly
released. 1 am obliged to keep vigilant
watch of my letters to hinder their being
stamped and posted for ine by Invisible
hands. I never before have so' fully leal
i.ed the truth of these assertions of your
learned and pious fellyw-citlzcns Rev. Mr.
Wilbur, whose lucubrations have been a
source of much delight to us for many
yours, when he says somewhere: " I
think I could go ncnrlo lie a perfect Chris
tian if 1 were always a visitor at a hous-v-of
some hosnitablc frincd ; I can show a great
ileal of self-denial where the best of e cry
thing is urged upon nic with friendly lin
H)rtunity. It Is not so very bad to turn
the otlier check for a kiss." f looil-liuiuor-ed,
but honest, earnest words. Yet ho

lieving it, as lie should havo behoved it,
a little better than any oilier country in
the world.
The Drunkard's Soliloquy.
Having passed by tlie inn, I observed
Home one at a short distance, boneath a
lofty buttonwood, apparently holding u
dialogue with lwniself, and heard tho fol
low inir :
" M ho am I V Aye, and what am I, but
a wivicneu outcast, shunned ami ilespisinl
by the wise and good ? My estate wasteil ;
constitution destroyed; allairs in ruin;
friends absconded; children naked and

to "Fath6r, oh, father:" exclaimed a
sudden and wild voice. Tho knife fell to

Yesterday morning Mr. Reedier preach
ed to as large an audioi.ee as Plymouth
Churoh, with every observance to economy
of smce, could accommodate. In place of
tho flowers which usually grace the plat
form, autumeal foliage on one side, and
berries of rod, blue nnd brown on tlie otli
er, were substituted. Hefoiv tlie hymn
proceeding the sermon, Mr. Hecchci- said
lie had fixed Friday next for the
UAI'TIRM JIY IMMr.USIllX ,
of any )K!i-son who would to him. I am
soine'tiines asked, said Mr. Reedier, if 1
baptise persons who are not lo be comniu
ncants of tilts church, and persons who are
already memlicr of other churches who
desire to remain so; persons who have u
trouble of conscience on tin- subject of the
ordlnanco of Raptism. Mv reply is, in tho
name of the Lord, "Yes. I baptise any
body who wants to be baptised, and who Is
attempting to live in accordance with the
tenc-liings of tho Lord Jesus Christ. If you
are a Roman Catholic I will unite Pro
testantism witli Roman Catholicism, and
won't say a word to your pastor about It.
If thero bo any here who feel that they
would rather be baptised ns their parents
were, by immersion,
i wu.r. iiaptisi: THEM
Raptism is not a charm ; it is a sign, a
moro emblem, and nny body who takes
that as an emblem of Christianity, 1 will
Imptii-o.thoin. "What, will you baptise mo
twice?" I would baptise you lifty times.
And tho idea that a porson should only bo
baptised once is a part of tlie medieval no
tions. And If there are any persons who
feel that a load would he lited from their
minds by baptism by immerison, tliey have
only to indicate their wish to me and 1
will baptise them. I 'lo it not because I
thiukuman should be on right terms
with lu conscience rather Uiau with any
technical ordinance, which is but an out
side theory.
