they sit around the card-table in the oyster

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

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

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-

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.
