G ircatgood I say from t fact that miny have joiucd their n .111103 to the Trmerance pledge, and lived up ttuctly to the t,. if menu and demands conlalnsd in such pledge, 1 ' j proved a benefit lo the community, and) a sub itiMial blessing to their families. Tcmperanco, ie Christianity, was designated for universal nc rtptance, Its doctrines nnd precepts arc applica '! to man In every cnnditlon of his being. Thero it cine so high and nise that it will not clovato his uptrationf, and increase his nisdum; none so low i-d ticinus that it will not cominisserato his condi tidon, create in him a right spirit, and set him on tn upwatd course of duly and good living. Tcni ;rncc, though independent of, yet, is quite tenement to the progress of Christianity. Know- t ell the amount of good that has been comple te! and acquired by tho past transactions of tho Ttmpcrance people, nevertheless I am confidont more would have been accomplished and greater c .injet in our government been effected, if they l.i j talen a different method from that which they lite nnd, by erecting new standards by which to distinguish right fiom wrong in social conduct and 1. tcrcourse, and by presenting new motives by which to influence human actions. Tho statesman who hiving a familiar knowUdgo of tho acts of CoTtrnmont, and walks in the paths oftruo Tem perance, will endeavor to involve its wise and hu- rome principles in every form and department of gjTtrnment which ho seeks to establish. It is to l rrgtettcd that tho subject of Temperance, till of ii'.f, has formed a no moro prominent part among ereligfous discussions which havo characterized -.stians in all ages, and thus exerted a better in- feencc.by taking a deeper and more permanent hold i tie public mind, so as to mould its principles and 'IW.I1U3 tmu a. iuu.c c&.ici cvu.ornuif to .13 purut Umbla and benevolent spirit.

Thanking the landloril for his advice, and inform ing him that 1 had but a trifling sum with mo, I bido him n hearty farewell, and proceeded on my jour ney in conformity with the directions furnishsd me. The path which I had to travel was truly a solita ry onc, nnd shortly after leaving Maitland, it com menced a drifting shower, which, in despite of my travelling cloak, wetted mo to the skin.

I strenuously cn dervored, however, as I rodo under lho withered nnd tvido spreading blanches of aged trees, that overshadowed the path, and rendered tho track hardly perceptible, to raiso my spirits, hut tho effort was useless. Tho deep gloom that prevailed, tho loneliness of the place, tho uncertainty of mind, and tho dismal aspect of announcing objects, struck coldly upon my heart. Then, too, I was momenta rily in expectation of being engaged in a conflict, whereby one must die, wilh a remorseless despera do. Ofton was I at tiic point of turning the head of my horse, and retracing my steps; but prido inva riably interposed, and would not pern.il mo lo carry tho procedure into effect. 1 was thus wavering nnd irresolute, when my feelings were fairly aroused by my attention being diverted to a circumstance of mnrcimmcdiato import. This was some object that could not be defined in the obscurity of tho forest, but which was evidently movins in a parallel line with myself. Tho sicht was moro than sufficient to put me on my guard.

In this manner I progres6d a few miles, when, at an opening in the bush, whicii would not admit of further concealment, the figure came galloping in tin path, and, as 1 fully expected, the sot dtsant Mr. Holder rode up along side of me. 'Well, Mr. Stanfield,' said hc. 'so I sco that you are upon your journey, and a wet day you havo for it too.'
