Dr. Taimage on the Splendors
of the New Jerusalem.

the Finite Mind. There

In this discourse Dr. Talmage lifts
the curtain from eternal felicities acd
in an unusal way treats of the heaven!)

hath not seen nor ear heard, neither
have entered into the heart of man, the
things which God hath pre^red for
fchem that love him."
The city of Corinth has been called
"the Paris of antiquity." Indeed, for
splendor tne woria noias do sucq wonder
today. It stood on an isthmu*
washed by two s-.as, the one sea bring
ing the commerce oi Europe, the other
sea bringing the commerce of Asia.
From her wharfs, in the construction 1
of which whole kingdoms had been ab
sorbed, war galleys with three banks of
oars poshed ont and confounded the
navy yards of ali the world. Huge
handed machinery, such as modern invention
cannot equal, lifted ships from
the sea on one side and transported
them on trucks across the isthmus and
set them down in the sea on the other
The revenue officers of the cily went
down through the oiive grove's that
lined the beach to collect a tariff from
all natioEfl. The mirth of all people
sported in her isthmian games, and the
beauty of all lands sat in her theaters,
walked her porticoes and thre* itself
on the altar of her stupendous dissipa
tions. Column and statue and temple
bewildered the beholder. There were
white marble fountains into which from
apertures at the aide there rushed waters
everwhere known for health giving
qualities. Around these basins, twisted
into wreaths of stone, there were all
the beauties of sculpture and architecture,
while standing as if to guard the
costly display, was a statue of Hercules ,
of burnished Corinthian brass. Vases
of terra cotta adorned the cemeteries of
the dead?vases so costly that Julius
Casar was not satified until he had captured
them for Rome. Armed officials,

see that no statue was defaced, no
pedestal overthrown, no base relief
touched. From the edge of the city a
hiil arose, with its magnificent burden
of columns, towers and temples (1,000
slaves waiting at one shrine), and a
citadel so thoroughly impregnable that
Gibraltar is a heap of sand compared
with it Amid all that strength and
magnificence Corinth stood and defied
the world.
Oh, it was not to rustics, who had
never seen anything grand, that Paul
uttered tMs text. They had heard the
best music that had come frcm the
best instruments in all the world; they
had heard songs floating from morning
" porticoes and melting in evening greves;
they had passed their whole lives among
pictures and sculpture and architecture

molded and shaped until there was no
chariot wheel in which it had not sped,
and no tower in which it had not glittered,
and no gateway that it had not
adorned. Ah. it was a bold thing for
Paul to stand there amid all that and
say: "All this is nothing. These
sounds that come from the templ6 of
Neptune are not music compared with
the harmonies of which I speak. These
waters rushing in the basin of Pyrene
are not pure. These statues of Baochus
and Mercury are not exquisite.
Your citadel of Acrocoriathus is not
strong compared with that wmcn l oner

his burden at that brazen gate. You
Corinthians think this is a splendid
city. You think you have heard all
sweet sounds and seen all beautiful
sights, but I tell you eye hath not seen
nor ear heard, neither have entered
into the heart of man, the things which
God hath prepared for them that love
You see my text sets forth the idea
that, however exalted our ideas of
heaven, they come f ar short of the reality.
Some wise men nav* been calculating
how many fariusgs ioug and
is the new Jerusalem, and they fca*e
calculated how many inhabitant thcro
are on the earth, how long the earcii
will probably stand, and then they
eome to this estimate; That after all
the nations have been gathered to heaven
there will be room for each soul, a
room 16 feet long and 15 feet wide. It
would not be large enough for you. It
would not be large enough for me. I
am glad to know that no human estimate
is sufficient to take the dimension.
"Eye hath not seen, nor ear
heard." nor ttalonlftted.
_ 1 first remark that we can get no idea
of the health of heaven. When you
were a child, and yon went out in the
morning, how you bounded along the
road or street?you had never felt sorrow
or sickness. Perhaps later you
felt a glow in your cheek and a spring
in your step and an exuberance of spirits
and a clearness of eye that made you
thank God you were permitted to live.
The nerres were harp strings and the
sunlight was a doxology, and the rustling
leaves were the rustling of the robe3
of a great crowd risiDg up to praise the
Lord. You thought that you knew
what it was to be well, but there is no
perfect health on earth. The diseases
of paot generations came down to us.
The airs that now float upon the earth
are not like those which floated above
paradise. They are charged with im
punues ana distempers, ane mos:
elastic and robust health of earth, compared
*ith tbat which those experience
before whom the gates have been
opened, ii nothing bat sickness and
emaciation. Look at that soal standing
before the throne. On eaith she
was a lifelong invalid. See her step
now and hear her voice now. Catch,
if yon can, one breath of that celestial
air. Health in all the pulses?health
of visicc, health of spirits, immortal
health. No racking cough, no sharp
pleurisies, no consuming fevers, no exhausting
pains, no hospitals of wounded
men. Health swinging in the air,
health Sowing in all the streams , health
