accomplished scholar, who had made him
self acquainted with 'eight and twenty

Sir ijic Newton, the greatest of mathe
matician?, was a diligent student of the
Bible. Mr-Locke, a man of distinguish-
rd ucuteness in the study of the human
mind, wrote to recommend , the study of
the Now Testament; as having 44God for

if the imaginary presence of some great
and good man could restrain impropriety
and prompt to nobleness of conduct on
the part of a pagan, then surely the known
presence of the heart-searching God, the
greatest and bes-t of all beings, should
make us watchful of all our actions,
should check the very first risings of fol
ly and sin, should give purity to our mo
tive?, and humility to our hearts, and holi
ness to our lives; should lead us ever to
live as under Jehovah's eye, in such a
manner as to secure his approbation.

saw these things in their true light, as vio
lations of God's law, they would feel as
! Job and Isaiah, and the children of Israel,
felt. They would cry out Wo is me

mourn every family apart ' and every in

sins. And that Church or that individu

wonderful what confidence this state of,

This direction of Ezra and this answer
of the people was made in reference to
4 putiing away the strange wives,' which
the children of Israel had taken, in viola
tion of the. law of God. This was one of
the most difficult cases any where record
ed, and perhaps a more intricate and diffi
cult case cannot well be conceived. It was
not the sacrifice or restoration of their
worldly goods, but.it was the putting away
their wives and children. 1 hey had in
volved .themselves in as great a difficulty
as thfy could.: L.zra reproved tnem lor
this sin, and required them to confess and
forsake it. To this they readily assented
And though it was a time of great rain,'
yet-they immediately 'set down to exam

months in searching out and putting away
all this iniquity. There is no account of
any resistance to the will of God, or any
reluctance in performing it. Thoogh it
was a right hand and a right eye sin, yet
they ceased not till" the whole was put
away. This leads us to remark.

of sin are necessary to promote a revival.

know that this -worldly spirit must be put
away ? that the spirit of speculation must
all be given up that the last farthing
which has been taken by means of these
speculations must be restored that the
flesh must be crucified with its affections
and lusts' and that the sectarian and
duces mad staggers and glanders in hors
es ; to wit, foul acrid gases, inhaled in
sufficient quantities, and for a time suffi
cient to irritate the very delicate mem
branous structure of the interior of the
head, so as to excite inflammation, and fi
nally suppuration, mortification and death.
This is rendered the more probable, as
horses and cotvs when stabled are gener
them to repentance, that they may receive
forgiveness of sins, and not come into con
demnation as said the prophet, (Eze. 18 :
30.) "So iniquity shall not be your ruin."
It was a figure of the coming of Christ,
bis mission in the flesh -and his passion,
as John 3 : 17, For God se.t not his Son
into the world, to condemn the world, but
that the world through him might be sav-
fidence in our prayers, when our heart
condemns us. we cannot expect Him to
answer us, and we do notexpect it." But
when our hearts are broken -when we
have confessed and put away all our sins,
our confidence will be inexpressibly great
in asking, and His confidence in giving

Who believes those professors of religion
