Vnnr rLiimnnfs had nrcvioiisly appeared,

anticipated by St. Considering the cnicl
fate which overtook our Lord it may seem
rtranire that he should appeal to the recog
nition which they gave him as an answer to
the wolves. Christ was never rejected by
the Jewish people only by the rulers and
ecclesiastical dignitaries. There was no
public opinion. The rulcra did as they
pleased. In our own day the heart and
mind of the people do not indorse, approrc,
and support the unprincipled person who
wield our municipal civil powers and' reap
spoils of office. Theoretically we elect our
own rulers, but having a" vast machinery of
pliant instruments already jn possession,
they carry the elections, and by the perpet
nation of their authority, make the whole
people seem like aiders and abettors of their
forgeries and thcits. inc multitudes orthc
Jewish people did follow Christ. When the
wolves apicared they fled. Conquerors
irwecninc through hemispheres .have molded
continents to their will, philosophers have
turned the currents of thought into new
channels, poets have won the eye and heart
of nations for all time, but more mai vclous
in their fame nre those who have founded
the various religions of the world.
In the Orient the swarms which followed
in the footsteps of Mnliammed and Brahma
were facinatcd by fatalism and force, the gods
of India tind Arabia, and the people with
ered in their blighting breath. Christ en

inanity luusfpasfi: Commerce, science and
civilization develop under his care. The
religion of the Church of Christ is the fold,
intended as a place of refuge for the exposed
heart ot man. it lias ollcn been a holy pri
son, a moping monastery, a sad retreat, in
stead ot a pleasant Miccp-loid, opening in
and out. Christ is no dairyman to keep his
sheep in a dark, unwholesome stable, feed
ing on swill. The view of the Church which
excludes t lie world. as the school, playground.
arena, and workshop of life, which pro
nounces life profane and nature a ruin, is
one against which the intellect and heart of
man will sooner or later rebel. The world
is the pasture, and when storms gathpr on

the valleys and the chilling dews and damp

The Itcv. Chimney aic-"Vlinl Const I-
The Ilcv. Chaunccy Giles delivered a ser
mon on the subject "What Constitutes
Heaven?" on Sunday evening at tho Swe
dcnlmrgian Church, in Thirty-fifth st.,
between Fourth nnd Lexington-aye In
commencing liu sermon lie said that there
must be some essential and positive clement
growing out of tho Divine nature and man's
relations to the Lord to constitute heaven
nnd heavenly happiness. The first step in
the investigation of this subject consists in
determining what these elements arc. There
are two aspects in which the question must
be viewed, hrst, what constitutes the Divine,
or the Lord'n part; and second what consti
tutes heaven with man's part. Viewing it
irom the 1mi, fttvedenborg says it is the i
ri'iie of the Lord which makes" heaven. Ily
the divine of the Lord he means a divine
lore and diviuo consideration (lowing into
the souls and understandings of the angels.
On man's part heaven consists in receiving
this love nnd consideration and reciprocating
them receiving it in the form anil order in
which it exist id the diviuo mind, so that
all man's faculties may act in jK-rfect harmo
ny with tho divine, tn these two acta of re
ceiving and giving arises all our happiness
in this world nnd all the blessedness of the
nngcls. Tltis is in perfect accordance with
the declarations of our Lord, 'The kingdom
of God is within you." It is our absolute
unity with the I-iJrd in heart, in understand
ing, in everything that must constitute our
happiness. This is tlicdivinc clement in the
problem of Heaven. The human clement is
man. Heaven does not consist in a reward
of place, nor in the mere pardoning of sin.
The act of pardoning is merely negative.
Does n murderer when pardoned feel any
more love toward his fellow men than when
lie is on the Kint of suffering the penalty of
his guilt God may introduce such a person
into heaven, but such n person could not en
joy its happiness. All our happiness must
depend to receive the divine of the Ixinl, and
Heaven consuls in loving with a certain and

A pleasant, cheerful, lively, generous,
charitable minded woman is never old. She
is as young at sixty as she was at eighteen
or twenty ; and thoc who are old at sixty
or seventy, nre not made old by time. They
are made" Old by tho ravages of passion, nn
unsocial nnd ungenerous nature, which have
cankered their minds, wrinkled their spirit
and withered their souls. They arc made
old by envy, by jealousy, by hatred, by sus
picion, by uncharitable feelings, by slandcr

winch if they aoid, they preserve their
youth to the very last, so that thcchilll shall
die, as the scriptures say, at a hundred vears

selves on being eighteen or twenty. I'rido

Religious 1'rciizy CxtHiorillnnry,
New OnLEANS, Nov. C. Among1 the
striking peculiarities of the American negro
is his fondness for .noiscy demonstrations of
religious fervor, which has been lrcqucntly
remarked by travelers in tho South. ' It is
said that the Chinese have no conception of
bravery or heroism unless accompanied by
the beating of gongs and lom-toms, ana the
'negroea have similar ideas in the perform
ance of their religious ceremonies. Not
only docs a great noise and. bustle seem neo
cssary to them, but, like the rites of the In
dia Fakirs, it must be accompanied with
muscular action- and bodily contortion. The
scenes witnessed in their churches during
periods of revivals must cause, in sensitive
minds, only feelings of disgust ror.somc
time past there has been a revival here, dur
ing which the church members have 'acted
more liko wild beasts in a cage than like
human beings. The sight beggars discrip-
tion, nnd were one to tell trucly all he saw
at one of these revival meetings, lie would
receive many pious blcasings for burles
quing religious ceremonies and the worship
ol tho Deity. JL'assuhj thp colored church a
few nights ago, I stcpjHxl in for a moment,
where some converts were taking the rites
of baptism from a white missionary from
Massachusetts. The scene would have! been
rather demoniac than Christian had it not
been supremely ridiculous. Before thd altir
was a largo tank of water, up to which tho
converts marched in turn, while the as-
semblcd company were shouting, scream
ing, yelling, stamping and singing; vhile
two crouiw were dancing about in the aisle:
sonic were embracing or shaking hands; a
negro women was jumping backwards and
forwards over a scat, and several, more in a
spirit of fun than religion, were delivering
lusty "lii-hi's" from a corner. As a convert
approached tho water there was a moment
ary silence ; but after being inimersetl and
stepping out upon a platform on the other
side, the yelling and screaming again . com
menced, ihen tho newly-born began a
scries of gymnastic feats that threatened to
break every lonc in her body. Going
through the most indecent and almost ob
scene motions, she screamed and kicked
until exhausted, and finally ended by stiffen
ing out like a log of wood, iialf a dozen
stout men now stepped forward to carry her
out, the woman remaining all the time m
this rigid state, with eyes set, teeth shut
hard together, and muscles strained to , their
utmost tension. Seven went through the
same operation, and were each carried out
in this stufened stato in the arms ot thqmcn.
The whito missionary from Massachusetts
uttered the word 1 glory" as each one passed,
while his eyes turned upward, hands claspeu
above his Iiend and an approving Bmilc play
ing about the hard lines of his mouth. Ill
was a man who understood well how to ex
cite these simple creatures, and had learned
the crt of working their feelings tip to a pitch
that was almost frenzy. And all" tho time he
believed, orappearcd to believe, that lie was
doing the work of God. This screiming
;ind yelling, sometimes kept up all night,
and day after dav, is a great nnnoyance to
the icoplc residing in the vicinity of the
church, but if they give expression to such
feelings or words of similar purport, they
arc accused of barbarism by members of that
sect that favor such ceremonies. Speaking
ol the same thing in ihiboilcaux; the
fcentinel notices that the path to i leaven has
become so noisy among tho colored Metho
dists ot that community as to make the town
a purgatory to every one else.
CiiL'itcit KTiouirrrix It is fashionable
with many to come Into to church, long after
the services have begun, to the edification of
the curious 111 the congregation, and the com
fort of the nerves of the pulpit. It has
lately been decided, nn hiph nuthnritv. that
the following rules arc to be observed on
such occasions :
Let the lady advance one pace beyond
tho door of tho pew she wishes to enter, half
about lace, and salute, i he icw must then
be vacated by su'ch gentlemen .as are in it,
by flank movement. The squad should rise
simultaneously when the lady presents her
self, and face by the right flank, then deploy
into the aisle, the hcail man facing the lady,
and the rest walking So his right and rear,
the direction of the line being changed by a
right countermarch, and forming again into
line, up and down tho aisle, still faced by
the right flank. The lad-, when she scci
the coast is clear, completes her salute, anil
advances to her iwsition in the pew.. Tho
gentlemen break off by files from tha rear,
nnd resume their places. Great card should
be taken, of course, by olhcr parties not to
enter the aisle when this evolution 'is'in pro
gross, until it is completed.

Prepare the Vegetable Garden.
In December there is often a mild spell
in which preparation can be made for spring
in the earden. A deep soil is essential to
the production of garden vegetables ; but if
the toil is unfortunately shallow, and with
an unfavorable sub-soil, measures should be
.1 5. 3
ing, presuming that the soILis of courso
deep, direct trenching. In this operotior,
properly performed, the gQiund is dug at
least two spaues ueep, anu me lower sou
brought to the surface -and the upper soil
put in its place below. There aro many gar
dens in which it would be decidedly poor
management to bring a poor sub-soil to the
top, and to bury the good surface mould a
spade deep. AVhcre tlic soil is shallow, the
aim should he to increase its-depth and bet
ter fit it for the growth of those plants, the
roots of which penetrate deeply. In small
gardens this work can be done with the
spade, and at this time ot comparative leisure,
provided the ground bcnotlrozcn nortoowet,
The' usual method of working is to dig a
trench about three ifcet wide and a spade
deep, throwing out the soil on one side; put
a good supply of manure into the trench and
spade it well into the subsoil at the bottom.
This being done, commence a second trench
close to and .parallel witli the other, j throw
ing the top'soil into' the first trench', working
in manure at the same time, lhc subsoil in
the second trench, is treated the Same as that
in the first one, and the work is continued
by making trench after trench, and manuring
each one in the same way, the top soil of the
first trench is filially put into '"the last one.
If the garden is sulficicnt size, it should, be
so arranged that the greater part of the labor
can be done with a horse. It is a great sav
ing to substitute the plow and cultivator for
the spade and hoe, and to do this requires a
little forethought. All those plants which
remain in the same place for several years,
such as asparagus, rhubarb, and the peren
nial herbs, should have a location by them
selves : the remainder of the garden, which
at most needs but a single path through the
centre, will then be left unobstructed. It is
a great waste of space to cut large vegetable
gardens into beds, as it costs about as much
labor to keep the paths clean as it does to
cultivate the. crops, uardens .laid out in
beds and edged with box or other edging.
may look very neat, but they arc unprofi
table., Every crop, the nature of which will
admit of, should be planted in rows suffi
ciently wide apart to allow of cultivation
with horse power.
IIealtiifulness. of Arri.KS. There is
scarcely an article of vegetable food more
widely useful' nnd more universally liked
tKan the apple. "Why every farmer in the
nation has not got an apple orchard, where
the trees will grow at all, is one of the mys
teries: Let every housekeeper lay in a good
supply of apples, and it will be tho most
economical investment in the whoU range of
culinarics. A raw. mellow annlo is digested
in an hour and a half, while boiled cabbage
requires live hours..lhc most healthy dessert
that can be placed On the tabic is a baked
apple. If eaten frequently at breakfast,
with cors? bread and butter, without'mcat or
fiWi of anv kind, it has ailmirablD'cflect on
the general system, often removing constipa
tion, correcting acidities, and cooling off feb
rile conditions more ellectually than the
most approved medicines. If families could
bo induced to substitute apples sound and
ripe for pics, cakes and sweetmeats with
which their children arc so indiscreetly stuff
ed, there would be' a diminudon in the sum
total of doctors' bills, in a single year, suffi
cient to lay in a stock ot tins delicious fruit,
for the whole season s use.
I'ncl.s About Milk.
Cream cannot rise through a great dcptl:
of milk. If, thcrcforCj milk is desired to re
tain its cream. for a time, it should be put
into a deep, narrow dish : and if it be de
sired to free it most completely of cream, it
should be put into a broad shallow dish, not
much exceeding one inch in depth. The
evolving of cream is facilitated by a rise, and
retarded by a fall of temperature of the
dain- 50 fahrenheit all the cream will
probably rise in 3G hours ; but at 70 it will
perhaps rise in half that time, and when the
.11 i . .i - . .i
mute is Kept near tuc ireczing point, tne
cream will rise very slowly, because it be
comes solidified. In wet and cold weather
milk is less rich than in dry and warm; The
season has its effects. The milk in spring
is supposed to be the best for drinking, and
hence it would be best for calves; in sum
mer it is liest suited lor cheese, and in
autumn, the butter keeping better than that
of summer, the cows less frequently milked,
give richer milk, and consequently more
butter. The morning's milk is richer than
that of the evening. The last drawn jmilk,
the "strippings" at each milking, and at all
times ana seasons, is richer than that first
milked, which is ever the poorest. jr. II
