A modern writer of much wiadjm and pith of writing, says: '"There is secret belief amongst some men 'I; a God isdisplessed with nun's happiness, and so (hey alink about creation, ashamed aud afraid to enjoy anything!" These are I the people of whom Hood aays, "They think j they're pious when they're only billious!" A good man is almost always a cheerful one. It is fit that bad men ihouid scowl, and look biue, and be melancholy; but-he who hau God's smile of approbation upon linn, should ahow its radiance in his coun tenance. Doctor Johnson said he never knew "a villain m his 1 fe that was not, on tbe whole, an unhappy dog." And well he may be. But an honest man the man w ith a good conscience let him enjoy his sleep, and Ins dinner, snd the love ot bis wile, and the prali'e of his children, snd show a heaming face to his neighbor. Surely there jis no worse theology than that which teach- es that he who h s given such fulness of joy to beasts ind birds, delights in the misery of men; or, that having tilled our hearts with gladness, we ought to give tbe lie to his For the Jasper Courier.
