steeples and long tortgiwd bells with
elegantly Titshionrd seats, carpeted

your way about long enough. Your
teachera have "sewed pillows under
your arm-ho'ca," and flattered your
vanity .till some of you actually believe,
like our revered predecessors the old
Fhari.ees who rrncified the carpenter's
Son and stoned the Prophets, that you

ought to be and you know it. If you
bad your deserts, the Lord only knows
what would become of you.
And yet you are as unconcerned, as
thotigh there h no prospect of the
levil ver getting his due. But I feel
concerned lor you; and since your teach
era have their hands full of political
matters in getting up petitions against
the Nebraska bill, converting the hea
then, and furnishing bibles to those
-who want bread aiid potatoes, and in
bringing all sorts of railing accusations
against the World's Teople, thereby

My text is taken I'ro.Ti an old book
whiih gives an account of a man of
sorrows who was acquainted wittignei
and w ho "irnf 0601 doing good."
And you prolesa to le his lolloweis!
What haiejou been about? All around
you are tlie poor, the aged, the irifirm;
pale care-orn widows hall'-lamished
nd ragged children wills no means
of getting the nec essaries, to say noth
ing of the comforts of life. They have
tailed at vour doors half of them in
vain; and gone supje rlesa to l ed, and
shivering with the cold. In turning a
deaf ear to their supplications, you
have silenced the up-braidmgs of your
consciences, by pleading your ignor
ance ol their true condition, and shut
your doors in their faces, lest a state
ment of their wants and deserts might
take away the last fxiiise invented by
your ingenious uiultaritableiiets. Why
did you not like (he poor Nazarine
who had not where to lay his head,
"go about"---into the nairow streets,
dark lanes, and shackling old houses of
the city, and learn the truth by person
al observation? Were vou afraid of
soiling your silks, tali is, and brocades,
by coming in contact with haggard
want, and squalid destitution?
Perhaps you pray for the poor?
Very likely, tor your prayers cost noth
ing and ten thousand o't them.tliough
as long as a railroad, would not feed a
hungry child, or wipe the frozen tear
from the eye nt Hie widow. 1 his
eccnomy in natters of relieirm end

you hate more tsi'h than works, and
precious little ol either.
And, 0, mr beloved! look at your
churthes. Think of the thousands
and scores of thousands of dollars ex
pended in building them and for what?
That j ou might learn humility from
ostentation, and duty (rem a violation
of every principle of the gospel you
profess! The interest on the money

"He that hath an esr, let him hear

And remember ihat the severest reproofs

Dr. J. C. Atir,
Sir The Cherry Pectoral is mnch inqui- f
ted alter, several ol our best Physicians
have used it, three of them in their own case
and always with the happiest rflects. The
numerous patent . medicines alwaya before
them, lead to incredulity in regard to every
new remedy; and it is only after undoubted
evidence of value in any article,that anything
like a general confidence can be excited.
The unrivalled excellence of Ibis combina
tion ol agents, (in theChrry Fee tore 1) proved
beyond cavil by repeated trial under their own
observation, has compiled medical men to
proclaim abroad its usefulness. It is beyond
all doubt the best general remedy we have for
thel'ulmonary Afletiionsof this climate; at
the same time sedative and expectorant a
rare combination of properties.
In hop that it w ill prove its own reward,
I subscribe myself.
Respectfully your obt. aervt.,

Dear Sir No one, no not one-man, wom

Cherry Pectoral is all ihat it claims to be.
There is much used in this vicinity although
not known until recently. Tbe community
should know its virtues.
