A writcr In tlic Contr.il Christinn Advo
cuto says : Christians praiso God too little.
Thoy grow barrcn niul withcr, unlcss tlioy
cultivato thc sptrit of praiso. 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

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

'O! if I had no nioro anxiety than ho has ;

heart-aching caros, the rust and biting, the
cnvics nnd jcalousies, tho compctitions and
rivalries, tho attritions, of a lifo kcycdintho

miscries bclong to such mcn ; nnd if you
cotdd look into them you would not bo dc

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

whilo rclativcfl on oarth aro moving about
in hcavy and sonibro garnionts, niaking thcir

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.

Apple tree bore tlila yrar for tlie Srat tlme, and the ailai
