Notwithstanding: the Inclemency of the
weather, a large audience assembled at tbe
jMeuiod 1st Church last Sunday morning. lr.
v riant, tne psstor. preached an anie i-er
mon from 1st Timothy, 3, ltt, "And without
controversy, great is tbe mystery of godli
ness." The words "without controversy
are translated from a sinple word In the
ori iri nal. w h ich means "con fessed ly ." or "u u
questionably," and the text would have
been as correctlv translated if it had been
rendered, "Unquestionably the mystery of
godliness is great," wuicn is tne real mean
ing cl the text. The word mystery, like
manv other words in our laniiuaee. has
history. In olden times the teachers, or
philosophers, as they were usually caiiea,
did not print their discoveries, or their de
ductions drawn from philosophical medita
tion, and scatter them broadcast over the
country, as is done In our day. But they
had their private schools.md the ambitious
aud aspiring young men flocked to these
schools to be Initiated into the mysteries of
pitllosopblcal learning. ryinagoras was
prominent amongst the oldest and most re
nowned of those teachers, and voung men
bavins been Initiated Into bis school were
said to be learning the "mysteries." St. Paul
uses tne woid here in tne peculiar signin
cance. which it had at that time, nation
lists object to our religion, because of its
mysteries. They cannot, or Fay they can
not, accept that which ttiey cannot under
stand orcoraDrehend. The Incarnation and
the trinity constitute greatstumbllng blocks
in their way. To my miuu, tue myBteries
ot our holy religion present one of the
strongest arguments in favor of its divine
origin. Show me a religion free from mys
teries and I will show you unmistakable ev
idence of buuiau origin. The mysteries of
tne til me are (lie footprints oi iJeity granuiy
walklne throuuh the scriptures. The same
footprints exist everywhere iu nature, and
in every denartnieut ot knowledge, in veg
stable physiology who can explain the
growth of plants? In the Brain of wheat
and the acorn, we have potentially the
matured plant. Under the lunuence oi sun
light and moisture the hidden po
tency which exists in the seed develops into
the root, tbe stem, branches, nower, anu
fruit: we witness the fact of Its develop
ment anil growth, but who can explain tbe
"ho"oI the process T What gives it Hie?
What causes it to absorb aid assimilate
nourishment? What peculiar molecular
modifications enable it to absorb carbonic
aci I and exhale oxygen ? So iu animal phy
siology, what secret subtle power is that
whicu conveys an. impression along the
sensor nerve to the brain, where cognition
takes place, and swifter than electricity an
order is sent along the motor nerve warning
the extremity of threatened danger? Anat
omy and physiology, alter years of labor
aud toil, have explained the process, but
whence the power? Ills like tue wind, it
bloweth where It listetb, we hear the
sound thereof, but cannot tell from whence
it Cometh or whither it Koelh. Every ra
tionalist has experienced the sensation of
hunger, but he cannot understand or ex
plain how the modifications of tissue take
place which cause this sensation. So in
mathematics, .There, if anywhere, we might
expect to find everything plain, but who
can comprehend the demonstrable fact that
two l'nes may forever approach eacn other.
out never meet? in puysics,ioo,ine same won
dtilul mysteries abound. Ill remove my
bund from under tills book, the book will
fall to the ground. What causes it to fall?
Gravitation. What is gravitation? The
thing or force which oauseu the book to fall,
aud this is all that I or you, or sir Isaac
Newton can tell about the essence of the
force. It is the same force which holds the
planets in their orbits, acliug across lllirui
lable space. We witness the phenomenon,
but finite faculties cannot understand or ex
plain it. In chemistry, too, we have myste
ries wonderful mysteries. If we mix cop
per filings aud sulphur together without
beat, no change in either takes place. We
simply have a mechanical mixture of cop
per aud sulphur with no change in the
properties ol ellher;but wheu beat is applied
chemical uniou takes place, the sulphur
and copper both disappear, a new substance
is loi nied, possessing physical and chemical
properties different and distinct from either
su'.phur or copper. Nothing has been added,
Doming extracted, nut a w ouutnui meta
morphosis has occurred. Can the chemist
explain it ? Not at all. The God of the Uni
veise wrought the change. It was done in
His labaratory. Awy down in the intricate
iabaryntb of atoms aud molecules, lar be
yond tbe reach of human vision or Dower ol
human ken, He has His labaratory where
He pei forms His inscrutable wonders,
far more mysterious and incomprehensible
to finite mluds than the working of the
Holy Spirit upon the human heart. If we
combine hydrogen and oxygen, two hignly
attenuated aud lull im mable gases, wter,
a limpid nou-coiubustib!e tiuid, is formed,
with properiies totally uinereul irom either
of the elements of w inch it is composed.
these wouderful mysteries which we rind
every where in nature as objective realities,
we accept as lucts, out aaiuit "witnont con
troversy" that tney are beyond our compre
hension. Why then should we stagger at
facts iu our religion, because we do not com
prehend them ? Have we not seen the new
born sinner at the altar with every linea
ment of his face telling us in unmistakable
language that the spirit of the living God
had been ' shed abroad in his heart?" Has
uot the existence of a prayer-ausweriua
God. and the fct that He communes with
our spirits and blesses us, been demonstra
ted io us as morougn ty as any oi tne mys
terious facts in nature to which we have re-
f rred. But wj iluve not space to follow
li i in any I ii thtr. We have atte mpted only
to Kive the aisl of his argument. The chaste

There is a growing disposition, among our

getting wise, above what is written, and
some ministers of our most orthodox

ridiculing in the grossest manner, the Bible
account of Jonah and bis wonderful and
miraculous escape from the deaths of the
sea. While it Is not our province and
might be considered impertinent iu us to
enter even our protest, against th-se inno
vations upon the teachings of God's Word,
and upon the fait h of our fathers, as hand
ed down to us, from past generations, we
can but express our regrets, that our South
land, now for tbe first time in hi r history,
should be following iu the wake of North
ern infidelity and German free-thiukers,of
course, this inclination to skepticism, is by
no means general, but It is the rock, upou
which hundreds of the young, will be

Since the war a system oi commissioning

Whether cutting tape or driving quill,

I lell In love with you at first sight.
Think of youT why my heart you have ta-
And where It was yon have left a vacuum,
Which can't be filled by aught on Earth,
M v dear Viola, except yourself.
Nothing on Earth can stop the crevasse,
Fxcenl yourself, my charming lass,
The first time we met, I felt all over
And parted from you a hopeless lover:
Your angel form and voice so sweet,
Had laid me prostrate at your leet.
I will think of you wheu the dinner-bell
I will think of you when the mocking
1 will t-ituk of yon in open daylight,
I will think or you lu the gloom of night.
I will think of you when the sun sbiues
I will think of you when be does not;
X will think ot you when the north-winds
I win think, of you amid the winter's
But to wind np all In one clean sweep,
I wUl dream ut you wheu I'm aaloep.
