VMM this dl-closure of th-ir plotting came out the ten weie moved with indignation. 1 was natural that they should bave been excited, but I do unt bell ve the ten were any b>-tter than the two. The Indignation was as wicked a* the ambition. There was not one of them who seems to bave had any Idea of iLl ninlllllll aloiadJaaM tMrt these two brethren bud ecimmii.ed treason. They didn't perceive the cruelty of pride and ambition in them. Tbe Saviour temperately, hcnutifullv, gently dealt with them. " Whosoever will be great among mu let fehl Ml your servant, and who? soever will be chief atnimg you let him b? jour slave" And so IIo waa drawn nearer to these men by their faults. The sight of ambition and treachery produced, not repugnance, but yearning. Our Master was i.ot without indignation He lu d the power ol thunder in His nature. Hut toward His disciples compassion was excited, and sorrow and love. Ho opened up the ideal way, tbe spiritual brotherhood. The principle of selfish competition has a powerful Incitement, wh,ch should bo dl-couraged by the Christian spirit.

Dr. Up MUMM preached yesterday tiiotnin ul St. .Murk's Proleataal Kpi-eopal Church at Bccond-ave. and I Bj v. mat SI. taking for hi- b xt St. Luke xi.i., 23 ami Ml *' Tuen said one unto Ulm, Lord, are there tew that lie MVedl And He e.ud unto Ihem, fetliVB to OatSd mat the .tr.nl gate." Toe Man who asked tin.- queatliin, said the preach, r, wsa prompten, probably, by no feeling deeper than an Idle curiosity ; or he irinv have been one of those who so frequently tempted Christ by propounding questions with a view to cut uncle him in bis talk. Whatever ttm nn'ive of the question may feaVB been, tue Saviour does not deign to answer hha ; as if Ho would say: " What is that to thee I 1 hat is not a question tor thee to put or tar me to ati-wcr." Ami yet bow many there are, even I. mir iiay. w ho occupy themselves ebiefly w ith the curious or the dlfllcult problems which the Bible sug? gests. Now it sei ii.s to MS ibut ulu.i.t the wisest tiling for us to do, as a title, is simply to feJBatS such difficul? ties as tin Saviour "id, and to Para the current of talk to? ward subpels of a ]>ractieal and aMmentous Interest, remembering that ?* secret things be one onto the Lord," and that the mysteries oi the futuie are wised} hidden from Us, siUCO too llllllll knowledge would defe.lt tho puipo-cs of moral pronntlon. T'lie force or lfm image w hleh.Iei.iis per? etnploya Is largely lost upon us. since we kuow so lutloof walled cities, with flieir BBIfOB gSlBWBJBJ but tulho peopin to whom Christ spoke it must h ive been a very vivid ami Impresshe Ignra There M ulliaveuiy city, en? trance into vim h is dilti, nil.

H-ird, oppiaaMW poverty, for Instance; what a bewildering and hardening effect it has upon t he mind aud neait. It has seemed to me as I have, looked upon the lot ot the indigent, that It must require, fur some of them, constant struggle to keep the pout from sinking tutu utter despair. When all things are dark without, and w hen unxiety about the things of this life Seeps the mind lu a f verlsn heat, It Is hard to cher? ish a healthy concern about the things of the life to come. 1 lie danger, the 'earful prohabl tty, is that a heart truly Christian, ttuia oppressed and worried by poverty, may lose all its higher aspirations, and all Its finer susceptibilities ; tho things ol Cod becoming dim ami doubtful, lailh giving place M a BMsrulous temper or a settled distrust of all the pfnoapM and p.onuses of religion. There is no ouo for wuom wo ought to feel a tenderer sympathy, than for the Christian man or worn.m i ailed daily to baiilo with such hindrances tn tue maintenance of a personal faith and hope iu God.
