LAY SERMONS—No. 8.
BY SOLOMON SIMPLE.
To shall not surely die.—Gen. 3:4.
Ttet was barefaced, flat footed lie.
There was not, i not, ind cannot be
IngM word of truth in it. It wsa tie
In th beginning, it was put down in
the bible 11 lie. end it will remain a
lie, though ell the world should believe
It to bee truth.' Aud yet that fuoluh
young woman, Mrs. Eve. believed ever;
word of it. And her foolish children
grand children, eud great-grand chil
dren, down to the present oullandiah
generation, heve believed i i also. And
great, grow. up men, who ought to know
belter, here believed it, for no other
leaeon in the world, thin becaust the
grind great-grand mother of all the liv
ing, like an old aiinpleton es the was,
put a' little more confidence in the devil
than wai either afe or expedient. l:i
thil respect, my beloved fellow sinners,
we here all followed the example ol
Adam, in never pausing to examine the
matter for ourselves, but doing just as
the fair daughter of Eve tell us. And
it follows from this, that the grea'est
misfortune that has ever fallen upon the
world, was the introduction of woman
fata it because, if there had been no
woman to begin with, there would have
Deen no cnnureu, ana no notrnng, iu
" that case, we could all spend our time
in the saloons, and groceries, and stsy
out all night, and serve the devil gener
ally, without any to molest or make us
But as the matter now stands, we
must get along the best way we i-an.un
til we csn find a world to suit us belter
And the ti rat thing to lie done, is, to
set our faces like flint against all the
inventions of the old father of lies, and
especially against all the flat con
tradictions of the solemn declaration ol
God especially when our own experi
anca confirms his utterances.
lb the absence ot gract to help us
along, our best policy is to exercise our
reason. And there is more tuth than
poetr, in the old maxim that "honesty
is the best policy," Disinterested be
nevolence, so far as ihe unregeneraied
are concerned, is entirely out of the
question. Selfishness is the principle
to which I must appTal, to keep my be
loved hearers out of difficulty. And it
is suspected by some, that both the
promises and threa'enings of the Bible
are adapted to a general love af happi
ness and dread of misery. All worldly
misled people prefer happiness to mis
ery, and every act of their lives is per
formed expressly with a view to seeur
iug the one, and a tiling the other. And
still, in a great many instances, we com
mit the egregious error of doing wrong
for the sake of securing enjoyment.
This accounts for the fact that the world
by whicb I mean the people uf the
world is ten times worse than it uufcht
to be, or than would be for its interest,
The people seek for happiness, but com
mit the error of thinking that it can be
secured by a violation of the eternal
lawa by w hich the universe is governed.
Beloved the fact is that no violation
of the law uf God can escape the penal
ty. This certainty is the criterian by
which we determine what is right, and
what is wrong. That which promotes
happiness is right that which causes
misery is wrung. And the only reason
why so many of us serve the devil, is.
we are shortsighted, as to the conse
quences of onr actions. Be entreated to
do ib best you can, as prompted by your
own selfishness. You have no claims
opon the blessings of heaven, because
you ara wicked; and no right to au'.ici
pate good by your adroitness in escaping

There is no alternative left, but to do
til the good we can on earth, from the
well-founded conviction that in keeping
the commandments, there is a re
HOW TO PREVENT BIRDS FROM
PULLING UP CORN.
As it will soon be time to plant com,
I thought I would give you the meth
od practiced by farmers in this neigh
borhood to prevent birds from pulling
it up, viz: With a bushel of seed mix
about one pint of tar, which is done by
putting it in a tight vessel,and pouring
the tar over it; then put on water warm
enough to partially melt the tar; stir up
with a stick, drain off the water, and
mix in enough lime, plaster or ashes, or
a mixture of all three, to dry the corn
and prevent it from sticking to the hands
It can be done in fifteen minutes, un
less you wish to soak the corn; it you
do, let it soak in the tar-water.
The birds after trying a hill or two,
nd finding the tar very unpalatall',
they let it alone. Even the hens.alter
getting a taste, give it tip as a bad job,
and I have never known or heard of
corn treated in this way being injured
by the worms. .
By this method, farmers may save
themselves the trouble of putting up
scare-crows, which certainly add noth
ing to the looks of the field

this recipt for a pie: Cover your pan

WE invite the attention of the Public U
the Certificates apinded below, aud
bespak for them that candid consideration
which their honest frankness deserves.
Men in such stations as many who volun
tarily bear witness to the efficacy and value of
Cherry Pectoral, do not wantonly trifle
with, or distort facts, nor oveialate their con
victions. Judge then, whether this is not the
medicine to trust when you must have relief
for the throat or lungs; judge too, whether er
ery family ought not to have it by them as 4
safeguard against the everywhere prevailing
enemy, which steals with fatal frequency up-r
on almost every flock ond carriea olT the lamb
from many a home?

Dr. J. C Ateb,
Sir The Cherry Pectoral is much Inqui
red after. Several of our best Physicians
huve used it, three of them in their own case
and always with the happiest effects. The
numerous patent medicines always before
them, lead to incredulity in regard to every
new remedvj and it is only afier undoubted
evidence of value in any ar'ticle.that anything
like a general confidence can be excited.
The unrivalled excellence in una iwiuiim
tion ol agents, (in the Chrry Pectoral) 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 generul remedy w e have fo
the Pulmonary Affections of this climate, at
llie same time sedative ami xpcctorant
rare combination of properties.
In hope that it will prove its own reward,
I subscribe myself.
Respectfully your obt. scrvt.,

Dear Sir No one, no not one man, wom
an, or child can Le found lo deny that the
Cherry Pectoral is all that itcluims to be.
There is much used in this vicinity although
not known until recently. The community
should know its virtues.
