At the very uioment he thinks himself Iree, a number 't tne old tucliua'.ioi.s b'tip up jn hi in like a pack ti huni'iy bouudh, with their muzzle all tear ing uniiv at tno thinks ot one poor reindeer. In Jars there is a sculptured representation ot icchuH. tne god of revelry, ridmsj on a panther id tuil leap, 'sifi'iiiticiiiit. He who speeds on TuiLOus ayt r-des a wild, bloodthirsty mon ler, and i'us every leup is a death-leap. Hociety also r "pulses the returning prodigal. "Are yvu here?'' savs ibe u-her at the door of ibf church to inU repenting man. He fides up to a ispectablc man to f;ei into good company, l.mtbe highly tespectable man has busines ibht takes him risrhtotl at ihe next street; for we must preseive our respectability! With hu 3ilupidatea coat, he putsojt bis hand to some yojnp man, a member of one of our churcue, fnd ttievourp mau responds by nivinct him the tip end ot the l)u tiuueis of the leit hand. Ob! yt a bo curl the lip of scorn in the presence of the la'len, I tell you plainly that the same la llueuees which have destroyed them would Lav thrust, you into the ditch. Who are you, inr.ipbt up aud surrouude 1 by holy influences, tbut jou should be so hard in your treatment 1 the imiortunate ? Kather let bim take t'OUJ the other side of your hymn-book to-niht, thoupu t shake violently with his dissi pations. Vou would be more lenient if you knew tue process of his fall. When u wai first bei?.,)s Vo Ue uisnpated, he is very lareiul where he jt must be a highly j respectablp hotel. n Would scorn to enter one ; 1 these corc- r-nutsat , witb red-stained class, I nd a innc of beer paiut.,i on ue sign-board. ! Vo:i could not lra him iDt0 such a pin""-, i Ask him to fro there, and his Soif.rerin0f would j lojseup, and with flushed cl eek lie wouli dc- ui&nd: "Sir ! Do you mean to insult me?" No. It must be a clean, marble-floored bar-room. No uiacious pictures hung back of the coun ter. No dr.inkards hiccoughing while Le stirs the driivk. It must be a place where only firsi-clas gentlemen go, flick totfther the rims of their cutelass, and drink to the anbouncement of flattering sentiments. But such places are not al ways at band. And the taste implanted must be satis fied. Now he goes into underground restau nnt. Not so particular as he was about clean liness, or style of pictures. Conversation not as f lire as it inleht be, but no matter for that people muet not be too fastidious. Time goes n, and be does not any more discu?! the char bCier o the dram-shop. Floor sanded or sav 3uBted is just as good as anything when a man le. thirsty. More log-wood and strychnine in the beverage, but liquors are high, and you must expect adulteration. The down grade is uteeper now. Almost at the bottom". There they sit around the card-table in the oyster cellar, wheezing, blood-shot and blasphemous, cards greasy and worn out, till they can hardly tell who has the best hand. But never mind, they are only playing tor diinks. Shu (He away f Landlord stands in shirt-sleeves, with bis hands cl bis hips, watching the game, and waiting for another call to till up the glasses. It is the hot breath of unquenchable Are that flushes that young man's cheek. In the jets of the gaslight I see the shooting out of the tiery tongue of the worm that never die?. The clock strikes twelve. It is but the echo ot the great bell ot eternity tolling at the burial of a soul. One! Two! Three! Four! Five! Blx! Seven! Eight! Nine I Ten! Eleven! Twelve! Two hours more. They are asleep in their chairs. "Come ! come !" ays thp bar-tencier. "Time to 6hut up !" "What?" "lime to shut up 1" 1'ui.h them out into the nieht air. They are going home. O! my soul! Ttiey are going home. Let the wife crauch in the corner, aud the children hide under the bed. Who is it? The man that began to drink in fashionable hotels on Chesnut street, fend completed his damnation in a ero2-shoD on Sixth street. 3 , The preacher said that the Or&t thing to do to get back was to throw yourself on Uod. Make outcry for help. Nay! no words are demanded; give one look at the cross, one longing, earnest, agonizing look, and you will be a tree man. When the wounded men came to our hospitals, we did not wail till we found out where they came irona oeforee heipud them, and God does not ask wbre you came Irom, nor what you have been ioing before He offers His healing power. Just bold up your wounded soul, and He will cure it. The mountains shall crack apart rock irom rock in the grip of great convulsion, aud the saa boil like a pot in the fires of the last day, and stars rain into dust, and the universe fly apart at the blast of God's nostrils; but the Lord will expend all the strength of His omnipotence, and exhaust all the wealth of His compassion, and Himself go beggared through infinite spaces rather than it shall be tcld in heaven or hell that a soul cried out for rescue.and God woul J not help him. After giving many instances of the power of grace to reclaim the wandering, and urging those who are attray to quit evil companions and seek Christian associations, he said it is a good time now to begin, iu this last Sabbath night of ihe year, In the closing moments of this servico, the Sabbath wing spread for flight, angels of God's mercy hovering till you almost feel their breath on your faces, the solemnity of the moment pressing down until it affects the respiration, your heart beating untll-you hear m Us every throb 1ue footfall of a higher des tioy, at each eibow an immortal like yourself fiarcbicg step by step towards a stupendous future.JIhe Holy (Spirit with outspread wing feroodiug over all tui auditory, and coming to your ear the booming cf ibe ff.r c ff s' ore or tbe 4''un eta great etf.rr.ity.

HOME FOR STRANGERS, The Downward Career of Young Meu lu Vice A Plea for tlic Erect lou of a Strangers' Home. The following is a condeuced report of a lee tuns delivered by the Kev. S. A. Mutchmore, ou the parable of the "Prodigal Sou (being the third of a series), nttheCohock6ink Presbyterian Church, Gcrmanlown avenue, above Fifth: It might be of interest to you to know where a youth, parting from such a home aud such ties as are represented In the parable, would first go to find the happiness for which he longed. He would not first plunae into exces sive vice the inllueuce ot home piety is yet too strong for that. He would probably stop at the City ot Morality, into vihicu Chr.stan, In Ban yan's "Pilgrim's Progress,-' was inveipled, and here he would be the guest of Mr. Legality and his son Civility the one a spiritual cheat, and the other a hypocrite who would teach him til first stepot alienation from God, viz., that there Is no need of a young man to frequent the house ot God, and the sooner he is divorced from its hullowed associations the better. For the City of Morality had no church: its citizeus never needed one, their reliciou consisting only in ab staining from a few vices of the baser noit; giving now aud then a few pennies to the pass ing beggars. But that on which they pride themselves most, is in not being as bad as many church folks. The above-mentioned particulars are the chief art cles m their coufesjious oi faith. My young friend, the truth presented In this allegory ot Bunyau's is one to which you will do well to give the most earnest heed. As to salvation by morality, you Leed only reler to the young man that eame to the Saviour, and its utter failure. There is not a more hopebss feature in a man's life than his withdrawing from the worship ot God's house. It is the most successful ay of cuttine off all communication between your soul aud God; it is the buryiug of an tue saintly lunueuc- ot your lather's house, and stopping your ears to the dying accents ot entreaty troni your departed friends. There is always hone of one. however wicked, who still frequents the church; an arrow miy there pierce his heart, and save his soul. But away from the church you are insulated from almost every influence lor nocd you drltt on to doom like a waif on the oceau, with no baud to arrest you in your aimless career; and when a man commences to give up bis convi.tions, those torn away will loosen those remaining, until all are gone, and he Is a wreck. The young prodigal is no better c nteuted in the City of Morality than in his father's house. Molality will not satisfy the deep yearnings of the human fsou). It Is like trying to lift one self into rest by pulling at onr own leet, or ar resting the aching of our hearts by tutruiug at Drown wills. Morality will not do-Ul piwcr- CliANGri: CUT1 LANDLORDS. , ..-'"I , 'I I I 1 rNW WJ JJ I I je.-s; it is too negative. The prodigal is impelled o:vaid until he leaches the City of UnbcLof, which lies m a deseit. Its environs are not iuvitiiia; its sands are strewn with the wrecks of past be'.icls. So liviugtuing Appears there but is mutilated. The ouUcrtlirs l.ave the'r wings pulled off by skeptics of this city, to see it they could not have been made without a God. The dowers are reft id their petals by the same persons, trying to see il they i'urae by chance. But the prodigal, for all this, is much pleased with the society. He is invited to the skeptic S'ar Clamber. Here he loses ninuy of the servile con victionsi of bomp; Irom these savnns he learns that the Bible which Ills mother lovca is not true, and that it is utterly unphilosophicil. Here he reads the vestiges of creation, in which worlds are made from star mists, w.tiiuiit even the supposition of a God. Here he Icarus that man is a lo'tv develop nioiit of Iho orar.g-Oulai g; here is shown some pieces of rtck, with rotils which must have been formed myriads of years before the Mosaic record; and here tco he is first iatro diiCfd to the "Bureau of Church Scandal 1" Here he discovers tha ali virtue Is selisliness. But still be is plagued wth unrest; his destiny must be dowuwaid. So he lea vein tht counsels of the ungodly, aud staudeth in the way of sin ners. The concourse of the vile Is the highway do bis pleasures. He finds his sanctuary In the rum house, where he mounts the rostrum and sntefh with the scornful. Here he ridicules all that is lovely In woman's chaiacter all that is noble in religion like the buz aid that sweep? over broad acres of refresh ing beauty, with air balmy with the fragrance of Cowers, and lights ut on some decaying car case tilling the air wi'h its stenchful ichor, and there holds bi-h carnival. He sits in the citif the scoi-uftl-e eulertalns his companions with cftricati ri ol the piety ol his house tells of uis lather' "loiia-wlndcd"' prayers of how much Scnptuie he had to commit rails at the shorter catechism pa js tbut he was disgusted with it'igion when young ridicules his mother's sol' fit i te iellsj'f her admonitiors with so much diollen that all the crowd laugh outright and in a con ic way dep'ets how she slipped a Bible into his trunk with passages marked, or how she expected to "catch" him by laying a lock of her grey hair on some favorite ver-e. He makes treat mirth-over the long sermons he used to hear, aud snivels their passages a the parson used to deliver them. On Sabbath mornings he is found at the corner of the street, perched on some box or doorstep, whistling, unci mukincr remarks upon the'pletv of the pat-sing minister, thinks that a sanctimo nious face covers a multitude of sins, sneers at the virtue of the women on their way to the sanctuary, tbiuks female virtue ouly the force ot cireuuUtanccs I will not say more; I loathe him, and 60 do you; the very sun squirms to touch bin-, uud were it not that God has ap pointed it to show up corruption as well as to .-n ile ou t lrti e, t would leave him in darkness tins ! not dark enough to mantle his depraved heart. But even here he Is no belter contented. Un like Dante's imae of the infernal, which ranges its several dreary mansions, along a narrowing uud dcscnding' volute, the lower it sank the more narrow it grew. But the lower he sinks t lie broailer ami more dismal his shame. But he has re bed the metropolis of the world. Here passion and wit, miith and pleasure are incarutite. Kar off its glory shines, and as ho mar- its wails with gates of brass, and beholds its gay pala'etnd hanging gardens, hears its music find reve'ry he hopes that here, at last, he I a8 found the end of all his feverish dreams, ami fl at even anoy will find itself outdone. Hh heait s el's at b.- thought of ever-unfolding pleasures in the krllliaut city. He finds young comptin ous vaiting for him, who seemed to huve an inf)tYnc of his coming. They proffer their kind otlices to show him the sights. My Christian friends, whatever the devil has lost in tits iuii, tins is certain inai ne nas not lost t he use ol hospitality. Christians absorbed with other interests may turn their backs or close their doors on voting men, or neglect the stranger within their gates. But not o with the enemy of our souls; he ever gives ioung men a gracious welcome. He sends out his runners to meet them at the railroad depots; fills their bauds with flanitna advertisements o: all his gayetles; he never leaves a strauger comiu? to your city out In the cold. Thus, the callow young are soon initiated Into all the scenes; and it is not wou dei ful that so many young men aro lei like dumb beasts to the slaughter. A stranger in a strauge land, almost any kind hand can lead him to the sanctuary, to the .acred places of purity, or to the chambers of mirth and revelry, whose rear doors are the pates of hell. I tec charity hivcuttv In devising asylnnn are yours, I wish yon you." for the unfortunate sons and daughters of men, and I wonder why some benefactor bafl no; thought ol an asylum tor homeless young men in this great city of ours. Better have an asylum that would prevent crime, than one merely to hold the wiccks which crime has made. Is theie not some mau of wealth, with a great heart, that would build such a house as that of ti e "Un'on League," and give it to the Young Men's Christian Association, or some other asso ciation of Christians, a9 a place where, young men could spend their evenings with Christian companions a "Temple to Virtue," equal to, if nut rlvHllmo, those df iliciite'l to passion, where the tires of lust are uot allowed to smoulder ou lier altars. Why should virtue eo in rags, while vice fluunts in royal tiappinss? Why should relicion always lie in mean raiment, like Lazaros at the cates, while iniquity is clothed in purple and fine linen and fares sumptuously every day. Such a home should be filled with good books and papers; the finest of paintings, aud best of music; for why should vice subserve its base ends by tho.-e things which God has given us with our religion? For the finest literature, the grandest triumphs inpalntiug, and the noblest music that eter ear heard, have been given to the world when religion held sttblimest sway. Puchalion'e for a stranger within our cates, where Christian men and women could go aud diffuse the sanctity of home, and join in the evening hymn of praise, would bring a new and glorious era for virtue and religion. And the benefactor w.ho would do this great work, would live in the hearts of his countrymen as long as virtue had a tongue to praise his name. AUCTION SALES. B. SCOTT, JR., AUCTIONEER.
