Tho Psalnis nro full of pruise. It is gootl cxcrciso to re I'ount thc nicrcics of God, tn think of llts loving kiuducss. Wlvaiiniiikes theso thoughts moro forciblo ut this.tinio, is the factthat wc wcro onco indirectly and rathcr curtly re bukcd for uttcring praiso in pruyor. A niin ister said tliat it wns iinbcconring in us to rc joice ovcr tho goodness of God and the mcr cies wi! had rcccived; tliat insti'ad of this wu shuuld mourn and confbss our sins, and be wail our want of faith and our failurt-s niul shorteomings. Wo felt tho ccnsurc, and tricd to fccl had and to call up tho spirit of sadness, thinking pcrhaps wc had bccn too juhilant, but aftcr all, what Chvist lin.il dono wns so promincnt and so ovcrwhclining that wccould scarcely refrnin from praisiugllim. I tliu spirit of praiso inconsistcnt with thc spirit of liuinllity? Wo cannot always bo suro of our own spiritual stntc, but wo know that sonio Christians, who always confcss, and always mourn, and always hclittlu them sclvcs, do but little good. A nian's cxaniplc is infuctious, and a Christian can livo so sad ly that ho will ncver makc a favorablo rcport of ChHjt. THE POVEIITY OP PIIOSPEIUTY. Uecchcr, in a reccnt scrnion, says : " I vcrily bclievo that men who prospcr by wickcdness lose their capacity of enjoymcnt; so that thcro aro thousands and thousands of ovcrswollen prosperous mcn who are not one-tcnth as happy as tho mcn who havo altnost nothing., Whjvthcro nrc poor work ing mcn in yondcr city with snch pitiful sti pcnds that thcy can scarcely makc tho cnds incet, who aro yet a great dcal happicr than tho millionairc whom thcy scrvo. Thcro arc mcn that havo gono through tho prosperity of what nro callcdscculnrthingsin this world, who look out cnviously, and sometinics nl most sadly, upon tho swart laborcr, and say, 'O! if I had no nioro anxiety than ho has ; if I could whistlo and sing as ho docs ; if 1 had his lungs, and such arms as ho has; if I wcro as happy as ho is, I think 1 would bo willing to givo up all niy wcalth.1 Oh! the heart-aching caros, the rust and biting, the cnvics nnd jcalousies, tho compctitions and rivalries, tho attritions, of a lifo kcycdintho lower rango of tho human facultics! Thcso miscries bclong to such mcn ; nnd if you cotdd look into them you would not bo dc cclvcd nor seduced, nor pcrsundcd to tnkc thcir place," Shhouhino iMouuneksin Black. Wo aro glad to sec, that tho roligipus papers aro opposing this ctistom, and confinning tho popular fceling ngainst it, which seonis to bo gaining strcngth. Tho Unitcd I'rcsbytcrian, of Pittsburg, say: " A family will shroud it- sclf in black for years, as an oxpression of sorrow for ona of its dcad. That ono may bo in heavcnrejoicingwithnjoyunspcakablo whilo rclativcfl on oarth aro moving about in hcavy and sonibro garnionts, niaking thcir livcs as glooiny ns thcy can. Thcro is no fitncss in tho thing. It is oftcn a nicro mock rry of sorrow. But that to which wo now spocially dircct attention is its wastcfulness. Wholo wardrobcs of familics will bo thrown away, aud niany unablo to bcar tho cxpenso will procure nnd put on thcir mourning dresscs, all beeauso thoy have not courago to disrcgard a provalcnt but foolish custom. Thoro is much necd of rcfonnation horo, cspcciuljy in tho intcrcst of tho poor." BRYANT'8 NURSERY? Derby Center, VI.
