A Sermon Preached in the First Presbyterian A Sermon Preached in the First Presbyterian Church of Warren, Trumbull Co., Ohio, on Sabbath A Sermon Preached in the First Presbyterian Church of Warren, Trumbull Co., Ohio, on Sabbath morning and evening, Feb, 18, 1872, by the Pastor, Rev. N. P. Bailey,and published by request of the Session. f in . of l at an of ng ua by of Romans vii. 23. "But I see another law in my members warrir.fr against the law or my uiind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin whicn is in my members." . Some have supposed that the Apos tle is here describing the conflict between the natural conscience and the corruptions of a depraved heart in all ordinary circumstances ; otherB have Buppneed that he refers to the conflict that la waged in the heart of a sinner under deep conviction; and others that he refers to the conflict between the relipious principle and the corruptions that remain in the renewed, but partially Banctifled heart. Without, however, stopping to con sider which of these views is the nearest right, it is enough for my present purpose that they all ajrres in this, that the AposUe, in the picture belore us, clearly sets forth the power of tin. , And this is the trnih which I wish to illustrate and apply ou the present occasion. ' ' The power of sin in the human mind is best evinced by an induc tion of those fact, whicn show the powerful principles and feelings, that it overcomes, before it succeeds in subjugating the mind to its iron bondage. It matters not whether these principles and feelings relate to things personal or things relative ; to things temporal or things eternal,' it spurns them all alike. They melt before it like flax before the flame. Such is its power that it breaks asunder the strongest bonds that can bind man to his fellows or to his God. Jf either the "green withs' of social ties, nor the " new ropes " of religious influences, nor the "web of divine threatening are sufficient to hold it in check. Whenever it would arise and enjoy some coveted indul gence, it snaps tnese restrain w j many threads of tow. It sets at naught all law, human and divine. It strikes with equal impunity against every principle of natural and re vealed religion. It manifests the same despite to the spirit ofhunianity and the spirit of grace. It hesitates not to trample under foot both the blood of man and the blood of .Christ. That all this is true of the power of sin in the hnroan mind is evident from the followiug facta : . . I. It overpowers the love of reputa tion. This is a powerful principle, and one that is indigenous to the human mind. The wise man hath said "A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches; and loving favour rather than silver and fold " And what is thus left as truth upon the printed page, is with equal clearness engraved by the Creator's hand upon the tar lets of the mind. All men desire the respect of those around them. They rove to be spoken welt of. Long after the heart has become a sink of ini quity ;. sv cage of unclean birds; a sepulchre within which is concealed all manner of corruption, will men strive to whitewash the outside, that they may appear fair unto their fel lows and still retain their good opinion. They can live without Eelf respect far wore easily tnan they can without the respect of others. And hence it is, that when these whited sepulchres that have for years stood in tha midat of an intelligent and virtuous people that have kng been seen and looked upon with favor, are ooce torn oien and their oorrop- tions held up to public 6eorn, tney so speedily cease to exhibit any longer tne least ouiwaru apcaiaui of decency. For a good name (I do not say a good character) but, for a good name imnnr others, men will contend loni7fr and more fiercely than for any other possession. All else they count as " trash " ip the comparison. Th dailv chronicle of any com- mnnirv am witnesses to this. Fcrpn this page we read a lengthy report of a trial before one of our courts of justice; in which the ablest ieal talent of the country Is contending with almost superhuman power of argument and appeal ; scores of wit nesses are detained day after day from their customary employments; a mul titude of anxious and curious specta tors fill the room ; and thus time and money and talents and labor are poured out like water, and for what? to retain a good name, by resiling an unjust or injurious statement, claimed to be libellous. And on that page we read of a per unai wimbat between men in which one is shot and instantly deprived of life, and tne otnar occotues a mgiuivc and a vagabond, because mey uao been eo.uca.iea to ueueve iiu uucmus was the only honorable method of repressing personal insult, and de fending a good name. - On another page we read of suicides to escape from the public disgrace that comes from shame, or fraud, or other crimes just discovered. . . And on the next page we read of wars and rumors of war, because some nation claims that another has shown itdisrwpect.and Hmust main tain Ita honor or good name at the point of the bayoufet and the cauon's ruoulb. 1 ' ' ,' ' , In these daily chronic J.eg of human conduct we find Uie scales ai-d weights with which to weigh the love of repu tation implanted in the heart of man. The infantile heart thrills benealh the potver of this principle as bounds away with light aud joyous Btn because of maternal approbation: and the glorified soul experiences as lie enters trie goitien streets oi tne - T 1 . . ... i 1 1. l.ia UoviAiir'a plaudit, Well dope, gppd and faith ful servant." Yet this love of reputation, which -New 4 uglier ij ri. is imnl&Dted in the heart of man by his Creator, which has received the eomoifndation of the spirit of inspi ration, tvh.ilb manifests itself in the purest joy ot f wnjjippa, vnicn in man leads to tne fcananilerinff of time. and toil, and money, and even to the shedding of blood, and which can find its fullest realisation only in the eternal approbation of the Infinitely Wife and Holy One, is lss powerful than sio. In confirmation of this we have but to open our eyes aud look around us; for on every side are men and women, young and old, doing tfta which, if persisted in, must sooner or later end in a total loss their good itMBHt. And in every com munity we find slaves to tin, bound by the galling fetters of passion and appetite, guarded by the "strong man armed," and goaded onward with the Jftsb of temptation, and already lost as tt forfeit the respect of the good and virtuous, and spurn as a vile thing their love of ep"ttion rather than deny themselves their sinful ip. dulgences, and abandon their vicious and corrupt practices. The struggle between siu and the. love of a good naai will be long and severe aooord i.ig to tiie previous training and social standing of tua vhUim Bitter ara the pangs which the young-man feels on learning Jbfth.s first tim that his friends and the comma ultv have found out that he becoming dissipated and is fast de stroying himself. A death-like sen satuin fefUles around his heart as thinks of tiie mark nf dial DDrobatiOB and the .disrespect Kbit" WyJ better portion of society will place uuu hi name. As his thoughts run over the names of those whose respect and rood opinion he would retaiu, he sees tiie cold recognition f one, averted eyflf another, and the entire nesrlecr of ft inr.a. Jn.n ne ntmosi it of so Is be wishes the earth would open beneath his feet and swallow him up. But as soon as the first shock is over, he resolves to retain his hold upon the public confidence, and the love of friends, not, however, by an Imme diate abandonment of all his vicious habits, and companions and places of resort; but by an attempt at Justifica tion. Ue can plead innumerable aches ai:d pains, and claim that he was advised to drink ale for their alleviation or removal ; and when it was found that ale did not suffice he is ready to affirm that some kind friend advised him to try bratidy. These being the facts he is sure he should not be considered guilty, or lose his good name; for when persons have seen him go into hotels, saloons or groceries and ask for ale or brandy he was only following friendly advice; and when his friends have seen the effects of strong drink in his face ot smelt it in his breath, they should remember his bodily iufirmities and friendly advice, and not charge him with willful dissipation. But unfor tunately for all sui h lovers of dissipa tion, the best portion of every com munity have learned to place no very high merit upon such pleas of advice, for they are unable to see the differ ence between the drunkard manufac tured by friendly advice, and the drunkard manufactured by the saloon keeper ; and they are equally unable to see any more excuse in aches and paina than in love of social inter course and a desire to do as others do. Finding, therefore, that those whose love and respect he would retain, will be satisfied with nothing short of an entire abandonment of his sinful practices, he resolves to try. He suc ceeds for a time; but Boon there is perchance a fire, and he works hard, gets wet and fatigued; he is templed to drink; he yields, drinks once, drinks twice, and finally Is seen to be drunk. Or there is a party of pleasure of which he is one ; others drink th tnvitA him ha declines : they railv him a little, reminding him of his former promptitude in these in dulgences, and he yields, and the enemy having in these ways induced him to break his resolution, it is easier to do so a second time; and bjt a short period elapses ere his friends see that their hopes are disappointed, that the habi: is too aeepiy eenteu ; they do all in their power to help him; but in vain ; be continues to struggle and to yield; until he finally wit nesses tne enure loss ui u name. Rucii facts as these are too numerous in every city, village and town. A few hours would suffice for the collec tion of well authenticated facts enough to fill a volume, all showing that iu temperance, gambling, impurity and vice in every form la more powerful than the love or reputation. II. Again. Tne power of sin in the mind of man is greater than his tot ofheaUh. ,,., riealtn, wneiner oi ouuy or ui imuu. has its laws, and these cannot ue transgressed with impunity. Ten thousand physical and mental eor rnntinna. deformities and torments. sJiuw how fearfully these laws avenge themselves upon tne transgressor. On the other hand ten thousand beau ties and iovs connected with health show how abundantly those are re warded who obey tdese laws. Not only- revelation, but six thou sand years of experience have clearly demonstrated that all excess in the Indulgence of our natuiai appetites is Injurious to health. In like manner we learn that many other things in the form, of acquired tastes and piactioes are detrimental to health. Now if we remember that man is so made that he cannot help loving health aud its consequent blessings; and cannet help dislttiug disease and iu cousequerH sufferings ; and then, remember, how innumerable and rich are these blessings of health, and how innumerable and distressing are these aurl'eriuus of disease we shall get eoms faint idea of the power of that vicious principle wuicn inauces man to dtarsirard health for sinful indul gences. Multitudes seem to live for uo other purpose than to wear them selves out as quickly as possible in luxury and not and aissipauou. iney turn day into night, and night into dav. Their motto is "Let us eat. drfnk and be merry, for to-morrow we die." Any thpg for excitement; anything to kill the present hour. And all this, while the protests of outraged nature become louder and nxu-e frequent every day.- The debauchee will pursue his vici ous course although he knows that thereby he is preparing himself for foul death in the mephitic hospital. The intemperate man for the sake of a few hours of intoxication, con cents to. exchange. mental vigor for the driveling imbecility of Idiocy, or the strength of manhood for the blasted, tottering form of the sot ; or the beauty ef health for that redness of eyes, for those trembling limbs, for that bloated visage, and for all those diseases from which the eye turnswith utter loathing. The patlr of society strewn with these pestilential maiiu mentsof vice, wbereau every passer hv mav read in letters of lire tne awful power of sin. . An army sixty UKKiMBfl common drunkards, another Lrniy of nearly the SAP40 number or notoriously lewd per sons, aud still another army of about the .same number of tecret adul ters s, and moderate drinkers, aud gamblers, and robbers of banks or the btate, but composed of those who wear fine linen and fare sumptuously (.very dav. and who for this reason escape the public denunciation be-, slowed on the poor wretch all these annually TilqngiDg Into the grave from thejeltates, (n pout?ouipoe of their vices and diKsipauoiis,' show how much more powerful sin i--t hao the love of health. III. Again. The power of sin the mind of man Is greater than ths influence of oaths or than any of the most solemn compacts between man and man, and between man and God. - For theaakeoftCfjulrJiifftbe mespi to minister to sensual appetites men will break through the most solemn 'restraints of pledges and oaths. Nor is this evil confined to any one class ofsociety. It pervadesaiu intemper ance, and vice, ana pnae ana extra vagauce have found their victims rirahm! -rps 'in the Christian cjhurFp. ana even among tuosc wuo have bet n outbid with all the holy the ministers of Jesus Christ w&iia pnisiae pr inp phuo UousauUs of clerks and business men become dishonest and rob their em ployers and creditors for the means attending wieaires, gamuung muwua and nlaces of still worse reput. keep up an extra vagantstyle of living 2nd have wherewithal to minister tha hist df the eye, and tne of the flesh, nd tie jjrle of lira, men defraud their country, and btate, and counties, and It.

What is it but the mighty power sin manjfestioir Itself iu these forms that so frequently destroys commercial coufidepce all over the country, locks op millions of money in the vaults bank Band the chests of individuals occasions so many failures, and many suspensions of publio works, and manufactures, nod throws lit jii) thousands of honest men of employ to spflprf ll the horrors beggary or starvation wilh lhir wi'ej and children. The leaders and masters who set these balls In motion, and who come to the Irout in newspapeis and courts, and upon 'whose guilty heads are heaped many ajisih.emas, are after ail only representative men; the g.rp but index to that greater and more dstir gerous scoundrel, the depraved "pub lic sentiment," which winks at forms of vio and extravagance. a is of In his re spopsibiiitiesof of To to of of so so out of the so an all The whole people are being rapidly cor-1 rupted by a love of luxury and every kind of indulgence. This corruption manifests Itself in dress, furniture, equipage, bouses, hotels and even iu churches. Everything must minister to pride and lust without regard to means or the fitness of things. And upon this depraved public sentiment vice lays her hand, and by mean of it tempts and corrupts her victims in every profession, in every depart ment of business, and .in every class of society. No business obligations, no professional engagements, no oaths of office, no social relations, no duties to church or State, are sufficient to resist her influence. "With her much fair speech" this public sentiment with her love of display, causes her victims to yield ; "with the flattering of her lips she forces them." By the law of fashion " they go after her straightway, as an ox goeth to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks." Hhe has cast down many wouuded ; yea, jnany strong men have been slain by her. When we look at these facts, with what emphasis may we repeat the statement, that the power of sin in the mind of man is greater than the influence of oaths, or than any of the most solemn compacts between man and man, acd between man and his God. IV. Again. The power of sin is greater than the fies of natural affec- '"These ties are numerous, and their power Is greaL They constitute the golden chain of heavenly mould with which companions,, families, and communities are bound togetner. Over the polished links of this chain are constantly flowing the electrical strokes of conjugal, parental, filial, fraternal and social loves. Through these ties we learn to weep with those who weep, and to rejoice with those who rejoice. . These bind families together as one body, so that all the members have the same care one for another; so that i.'one memoer sunr all the members suffer with it : and if one member be uonorea ait tne members rejoice with it. Yet notwithstanding the number, beauty, power and erl'ect of these ties, sin overpowers them all. For men are continually forming habits and pursuinginduleenceswnen tney khow that their conduct will disgrace them selves, and occasion shame, mortifica tion, sorrow aud suffering-to all their relatives. How many husoanus sac rifice the love, the respect, tne entire hanniness of their wives, and their own solemn vows of tenderness, care, and affection, to the foul spirit of - nmhUnir, intemperauce, and imflurity. How many fathers, aye, and mothers too, otter to mis same serisual Moloch whatever oi love, provision and protection they owe frtair rniiaren. nuw uibuj a and daughter trample on the tentleret and purest affections oi iatner,miiuer, Bister, brother and friend that they may enjoy the forbidden pleasures of sin. Wives pine away and die or broken hearts, mothers and children suffer pain and sickness, without medical attention, or food, or fuel, or raiment, or decent shelter from the cold blasts of winter. The gray hairs of doatiug parents are brought down with sorrow of the grave; and all this because husbands aud parents and children will yield to these unholy Indulgences rather than to the pure ties of natural affection. . How fearful is the power of sin as contemplated In view of these wrecks of family and social ties which every where arrest our attention. Ignorance, poverty aud wretched ness rise uo and proclaim wilb myriad voices that sin is more powerful than the ties of natural affection. V. Again. Sin is more powerful than all those elements of the soul which make up the law of humanity. This law embraces not only the loved ones of the home circle, the favored few of personal acquaintance; but it stretches forth its mighty arms until it grasps in all the race or man. In every descendant of Adam, in whatever country born, or whatever be the complexion he wears, this law finds a subject on which to exercise its healiiiz. comforting and elevating power, ft is this law that binds the nations and the individuals of this earth Into one vast brotherhood into a family for the exercise of every noble and generous impulse of our common nature, it arouses me ten derest sympathies of the heart and savs unto them. " All things whatso ever ye would that men ahould do to you, do ye even so to them." The beauty and power of this law of bu rn anity are seen aud felt as we con template the labors of a Howard or a Miss Dix in behalf of the guilty and the unfortunate in prisons and asylums; or of other noble spirits in behalf of the miserable outcasts of our large cities. Yet all these beautiful and powerful sympathies are crushed before the giant power of sin, manifesting itself in pride, in ambition, iu covetousuess, in every form of lust, sensuality and selfishness. These sins give rise tq wars.to civil aud religious Intolerance, to inquisitions, to slavery, to fraud, ti oppressions of the poor and weak. loTWU liegiwa, aiiu vo uuiwiih ainerent in vitwui vuifcrtug. judiuij is little else than au account or the various ways and occasions in which nations and Individuals have violated the prlnoipies of humanity under the influence of some one or more sinful passion. The envious and jealous feeliues that shed a brother's blood hard by the gates of Eden, have re produced themselves and their work of death In every succeeding genera tion. And as that first violation the Jay of humanity sought justliica tiou in Pie ifiipdet cusj.ion, "Am I my brother's keeper?" so pow the cold, unfeeling, selfish heart Justifies its inhumanity by a heartless rejection of the law of humanity. O what au awful voice of blood, like the sound of many waters, Is crying day and night from every part of our earth nroclaimine that sin is more powerful than alf those elements of the soul wnicn mae up tun taw vi muhukhj This vnine cries but aeainst the rum- seller of every grade aud name; and against the man or woman who pan ders to vice : and azainst corrupters of every name, declaring that they are responsible to God for the victims wbiph are !a;? on the altars of their covetotisness and love of galu. will be more tolerable 'for pnn in the day of judgment than for such. VI. Again. Sin is more powerful than the ear Jim, P? ij1prionment or death. No human government has yet sue ceeded in originating a penal code ad equate to the suppression of all crime. There has never yet been a punish ment so severe but tnat it nas oeen incurred. Meu will steal, rob, defraud, torawtr adulter, self ram, keen gam-blipg-houses. and Eet 'up ' lotfeVies, notwithstanding fines and imprison-' inept, and oouriseatlons. And tbey will burn houses, commit treason and murder, turn "pirates, carry ou slave trade, in spite of the musket, gallows aud theguillotine. They will fun any rit-Jfs, endure any hardships, submit to any suffering, Tatuer than foreffn the pleasure of handling and eating the forbiddeu fruit. Fear, strangest repelling power of our na ture, is not sufficient to keep men from sinning. They will do evil, in utter contempt of public feeling, -public thrcateplpg, and public punishment. Sir! is torV powerfurfbr all these, as evinced by dally occur ran ces world over. VII. Again. Bin is more powciful than the convictions of conscience. This attribute of our moral nature warna us the moment we entertain the thought of evil doing- Jf persist, it threatens us with whatever of ovil the mind knows to he connec - of t the the tha hi the w? ted with it. If we do the evil, it punishes us with the stings of re morse. The effects of conscience are powerful and distressing. When she arouses herself and puts on might, she makes thestoutest 'jeart quail beneath her indignant rebuke. In a world like this we could do nothing without her Influence. For it is her prov ence to walk freely and bodly among the most secret though U, feelings and purposes of the heart, as well as among the open acts of life. She suf fers rothlng to escape her scrutiny. Thu3 viewed, we may say of her re straining power over the world, "it Is clear as the sun, fair as the moon, and more terrible than an army with ban ners." We witness ber power in the bloodless lip In the palled cheek in the start of terror in the fearful for bodings, that make the guilty flee when no man pursueth But all this power of conscience is not a match for sin. Love of pleasure, and vicious indulgences beseige her, and gradual ly wall her in with neglect, opposi tion and corruption, uutil the heart no longer hears her voice or feels her restraining influence. Thusdespised, rejected, and refused a hearing, she at last abandons the contest, and gives over the victim of sin to the commission of all deeds of darkness and blood. Of what multitudes is thin true. Titer seem to have no conscience. Tbey "fear not God, nor regard man." They sin greedily. They sleep not, except they have done mischief ;" and their sleep is taken away, unless they cause some to tail. Thev eat the bread of wickedness and drink the wine of violence. Go, stand where" lie the mouldering forms of a Benedict Arnold, an Aaron Burr, and a Prof. Webster, and hear from their tombs a doleful sound de claring how mucL greater the is pow er of sin than the convictions of con science. VIII.- Once more only. Sintouiore powerful than the dread of eternal misery, and the desire of eternal hap piness, united. The moral nature of roan, the moral government of God, and the Bible, all agree in teaching that there is coming a future in which man is to receive good or evil accordingly to the deeds done here in the body. The Bible clearly teaches that this future is to be endless: that the good or the evil that man will begin to suffer because of the character which he has on en tering that future will never cease, it will be eternal. Tne moie teacues with equal clearness, that without re pentance for sin, aud raitu in tiie Lord Jesus Christ, man cannot receive this eternal good ; and that all who will thus repent and oeuevesnaii oo made partakes therof. On the other hand, it teaches that all who will not repent and believe in Christ, mu.t endure the eternal evil. Hence au woo win, may oe saveu. The door of salvation stands wide opeu, and there is nothing to prevent anv man's entering except his own iinarillinpness. The provisions Of sal vation are sufficient for the chief of sinners; and the conditions on which tbey are ollereu, are sucn as every oiau can comply with. Whoever there fore fails of heaven, will fail because of his own neelect of duty. And the blessedness promised to tnose wno en tar heaven is such as to make it an object of desire and hope to all who havn evar read their Bibles. ' It mat ters not how much they may disregard it while here, they hope that tney shad be found meet for heaven after they die. Bo on the other hand, hell is de clared to be the portion of all liars, drunkards, adulterers, fornicators, murderers: and all. who. from any cause, are impenitent and unbelieving atdeatti. . , . ... . Here then is eternal and perfect happiness freely promised to all who will come and take it; and eternal misery threatened to all who will not: the one an object of intense desire, the other an object or intense dread. And yet sin is more powerful than this desire and this dread united. For everywhere there is continued im penitencecontinued unbelief con tinued indulgence in every species of vice and sin, and that too, by those who unhesitatingly assent to the teachings of the Bible, and believe, that, if per sisted in until death, these things will certainly consien them to eternal wretchedness. For the sake of a pre sent sinful gratification, men forfeit heaven and incur hell. Jn these facts we have unmistaka ble proof of the fearful power which sin has over the mind of man. t is more powerful than the lqve of repu tationthan the love of health than the influence of oaths or any of the most solemn oompacte between man aud man, and between man and bis God than the ties of natural affection than all those elements of the soul ' which make up the law of humanity than the fear or nnea, or impnsou- ments or death than the eonviotions of conscience and more powenui than the dread of eternal misery and the desire of eternal happiness united. What limit then shall be assigned u a power that can overcome such prin ciples and feelings. ' In view of facts like, these wisdom declares it to be a solemn duty of every man to ascertain what influence this power exeruug upon him apd hia ruiure aesiipy.

Spd SllSie off this nower of sin. by immediate repentance and submission to Christ, whose gracious power will thence forward, be exercised in their behalf, giving them sooner or later a com plete deliverance from all Bin. Ail should listen to this appeal. For the longer they delay repentance, the stronger is the hold which Bin eatiiB upon their moral sepsibiUUes, and the greater (jecdmea the danger that they will lose their souls. , The facts before us show that there is no security for any one exceps in the protecting love and grace of Christ, which can be obtained only by their entire and absolute subrois sron'to him. When men ace Ului united to the great Savior, there is no power lu the universe that can separ ate them from his love. When thus united to him b? a Jivfug faith, he will protect from every loei for ha will not suffer such to be tempted above that they are able i but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that they may be able to bear it. Our subject also utters a special note r.f u-nrninir In the ears of voung men. To'all such it says, ypewarpl tak? not the first step In the path of 'dissi pation," It bids them reflect upon their present habits, apd future pros pects and dangers. It bids them exam ine the characters and habits of their companions and asfoclates. and the places of their resort, and to remember that, youpg men are known by their companions. For a one pan not take fire in his bosom, and his olothes pot be burned : or walk upon hot coals. anH hia feet not be burned : no more can a young man frequent places dissipation, or oeoouie wuiii or associate of those whose habits are jrragular apd yuuPW. wHhpiU pe'nB corrupted add marring the beauty bis own character. Hence our subject bids young men think, whether they are ready, by forming such companionshipa, and indulging in any irregularitiesof con duct, to yield to this mighty power of sin, and saoridee their good haine, their reputation, Which should i of dearer to them, than lifeitself; wheth er they are prepared ror that redness of eyes, that bloated visage, those trembling limbs, and for all the dis gusting marks of the habitual drunk ard and debauchee! Whether they are ready to break the hearts of doating parents, and bring down their gray hairs with sorrow to the grave? whether they are willing to crush the hearts of sisters, and trample under their feet every tie of natural affec tion ? whether they are willing to dis appoint the hopes of all their friends, and blast their prospects both for time and eternity? If they are ready for all this, then our subject says they may yield to temptation, they may form habits of dissipation, and place themselves un der the power of sin, and they will speedily realize it all. But if they are pot prepared for all this, then should they be entreated to shun all vice, and all thoe semi-vicious practice, which, although they are common, and too often sanctioned even among the better, and more virtuous portion of society, do never theless, in ten thousand cases, pre pare the way and open the door and then introduce young men to other practices wholly vicious. Or if any have already entered the broad road of vice, our subject bids them ttop, and resolve forthwith, that the stain they have already placed upon their good name shall suffice; that the sighs and tears, and sorrows, they have already inflicted upon the hearts that love them best, shall suffice ; that the risks they have already run of losing reputation, pro fession health, friends, business, hap piness and heaven, shall suffice, if they would descend the way of dis honor, ruin and death no further; if they would wipe out me uisnonor done themselves and their friends, aud regain what they have already row, they should abandon at once and for ever, sabbath-breaking, profapity, tinnlinc. rambline. and whatever else is so rapidly chaining them to the car of dissipation. Never more should they let friend or foe see them enter hotel, saloon, grocery or any uin place, in quest of strong drink, or the card table, or foranyotherpurpose un worthy the purest virtue, me ') salvation for such is in total abstin ence. For If the habit is already be coming fixed, and the appeti e grow ing strong, couUnued indulgence will but increase the power of these, and hasten the roin or ooay anu sou.. They may repel this statement witu the customary boast, that they are in no danger; that they have self-command enough to prevent their becom ing slaves to vice. But this whole subject tells them it is no such thing. And this testimony is confirmed by the thousands and tens of thousands, who annually die aud go down to graves of vice and shame. For these all once thought themselves in no danger of becoming slaves to any form of dissipation. Once they could hurl back the parental or friendly warning, with great indignation and in the language of the proud Hazael, exclaim with pious horror, "But what! is thy servant a dog, that he should do this great thing t" But like him, they knew not their own weak ness, or the fearful power r 'ic'ous appetites and passions, when gradual ly aroused byoctasional and even par tial indulgence. No young man be comes a drunkard or a debauchee all at once. The steps which lead to these final results are for the most part quite gradual. They commence too often in fashionable society, and with what I have designated semi-vicious prac tice. Wheuce come tne aixij sand drunkards who annually die in tho TTnited States ! They come from h nnci nf those who are moderate drinkers : and the ranks of these mo derate drinkers are nneu up bBiu vj tuVinof eixtv thousand from those who are occasional drinkers ; and the ranks of these occasional drinkers are filled up again, not from those noble and independent young men, who are firmly pteagea never w uoocw " erage aoy form of intoxicating liq uors, but from among mww j"s mn whn have not the moral courage thut to pledge themtelve. These youug men, thus unpieageu, nro jraoj niiihinwaixtv thousand new recruits. hn in,muiiatlv take up their line of march towards the low doggery and the drunkards' grave wnicn tney ..k in .hAnt in veara on an aver- , t n u ,u mwmv . age. And so of every other form of vice and dissiiiation. Tneyeany sop ply comes from among those who re fu tn ahxtnin altoeether from those habits and Indulgences, which so sure iv nonduct to these fearful issues. Am I not correct therefore inlaying, ihai thsnniv aafetv for votiBif men is ia total abstinence from all those habits.whlub do.year by year, lead not less than one hundred and fifty thou sand persons in these Lniiea ciates, form of vice, which ends iu their death! And are not young men greatly mistaken, when they disregard friendly warning and tha belief, that they can, with impunity, enter, the broad, but diort, road taken by these one huii Aro.i flftv thousand! Is not the halted fact that they enter this way of death, almost certain prooi tna iutj will continue therein, until they come to the bitter end. The power which sin has over such Js already draging them down w(th constantly acceiera thev must cut thi cord at once' or become victims for life and for the grave. Would that such cuif..onn,iPiit ones would think, now many young men of the most brilliant talents, or tne nnest swim m"""""' and of the brightest prospects, have felt aud said as they do now, but who long since, went down to a dishonored or a drunkard's grave, aud to the drunkard's helU Such cases steuO. up as solemn beacons to wrn all young toep not to take tie first step towards any form of viceor immorality. And Iu these facts we have now been considering, as illustrative of the power of sin, all persons may see the fearful danger they are in of making ship-wreck of all that is most valuable In time and eternity, if they allow themselves to enter the pat a Qi yire In any form. Wa'have seen that sin Is a rower that cannot be trlflled with. Hence all thould resolve to free themselves at once from it grasp. And for this purpose, they should not be content witiTmerely avoiding the dangerous practice now referred to, but they should "go fartber. and' resolve to se cure the saUatTon of their souls by repentance towards uoa, ana iaim the Savior of sinners. They should: do this, and seek his aid in their daily struggle wiib sio ) and then they Will come off more than conquerors, In ut-arv nnil flint with sin and tempta tion. If they commit the keeping of their sou U to Him.meir dbi vkj certain. But even, then they must not boast of their own firmness, or abili ty in resist temptation : they must remember the fell or David apd Petr, ami of niany of the hest men in fevery see ; and obey the diineadTopUlon, "Let him that thlnketh he standeth, Uke heed lest be fall."

Dkar C'HBONicLF.:--It al most be a matter of impossibility to I write all the many changes that are constantly taking place in and about the oil diggings; to keep track of all the good thing" that are being done, and record the bad ones also. We hear of many who are being made wealthy and are placed, in easy positions, financially, by fortunate investments in oil stocks; of others who In their et'deavors to keep pace with the lucky one and who, forgetting the many failures of those who had a bitter taste of misfortune before them, rush into speculations that take away thei r capi tal in a manner "not slow." So the same old story of success and failure Is every day heard, and steadily and surely, sometimes successfully, and sometimes not. the work of prospect ing and boring for oil continues. Most operators are not sinking new wells to any great extent, as the inclemency of the winter will not permit the erection of derricks, buildings, and machinery, todo the work of drilling. Yet all ate doing their utmost tose cure leases in good territory, and are making extensive preparations to do a heavy amount of operating in the spring or as soon as the weather is more favorable. We predict the great est rush to this region during the com ing summer that has yet occurred, aud for those who wish to engage in the oil business, thi is beyond doubt, the safest place ia the Pennsylvania oil region to invest, as more oi' is produced here in comparison to the number of wells in operations. Producing oil, we migut say is a science, lu past times, when th country along the famous Oil Crek was the only place in the State where operations were carried on to any ex tent, the wells were drilled to the sup posed proper depth, and if after a few days of unskillful pumping with very inferior machinery, the well did not yield oil in paying quantities, it was abandoned and pronounced a "dry hole." But at the present day, some wells after being drilled, are pumped for months before a satisfactory yield ia obtained. and usually where the in dications have been good, this manner of testing, namely, steady pumping without interruption results, in iuaa. inir a narinir well. A3 an instance of the perseverance and pluck of some of ou r D108I eDieriTiaiiiR ,vu i " w ... .. . . I. . i i . u mention one tnat we mini is wuiiu irivincr tn the Dublic. Nearly seven vMra atro ana previous iu tuo uuw when oil bad been obtained here in a quantity that would induce men to risk their money in drilling in this locality, a young man residing near Freeport or this county, auu oi limn ed means.came here at the instance of bis friends and with the hopes oi pei teringhis fortune, drilled a well to a depth of eight hundred and fifty feet, Just above and in the immediate vicinity oi parser s .uuumg. iu was no town here then, only a landing for boats, and a hotel was kept by Mr. James Parker. A good sand and some indications of oil was obtained, and the necessary apparatus for pumping was procured ana piacea iu ouerauuu, cut after six months of iteady pump ing, they had not been rewarded by oil enough to keep a common der rick lamp in burning material. Btill the well had improved some, and the indications were more iavoraoie uinu whn first sunli. Its persevering own er, nothing daunted, kept up the same old routine in iU management, and at the end of two years it was making almost oil enougn to pay tue runuinK expense. Thi was cheering certainly. And in the next four years, which length of time terminated but a short time since, this well kept slowly and atemlilv increasing, and but a few ib turn was vieldinx almost 400 bbls. per month, a very good paying we.il And from which its owner obtained the basis of a fortune, that to-day counts hundreds of thousands 1 We bear bis name mentlonea daily as one of the leading men in this d lstrict, andoneof thepropittorsof the largest pipe lines now in operation. e dou't presume to iay that oil can be drawn from a rock where it don't exist, but we are satisfied that if more good,steady pumpiug was resorted to, in place oi yielding to discourage ments and abandoning wells without a lair trial, we would have a much smaller amount of oil failures, and a greater number of successful oil pro ducers. The total daily production for the whole, Pennsylvania oil re irinn now exceeds IT.OuO bbls., and we may form some ideaaf the immensity of its trade when we copsider that more than 8,350,000 bbls. were shipped to foreign countries iu 1871, and At fell far short of the demand. What a for tunate thing the discovery of oil lias been to the land owners in this vicin ity. Some have already realized hand somely and are still doine so. But pre vious to the development of the terri tory here, the greater part of those owning land were only burdened by hulnir iU nosseaora. And especially was this the case along Eear Cieek, which empties into the Allegheny Kiver, one mile below this place. For agricultural purposes it was compara tively valueless being covered with huge rocks and a scrubby growth of oak and hemlock timber. Years ago au Iron Company made this their scene of operations, and we have many times viewed the ruin of their old fur nace which stood on the bank of the f tream about one-half mile from its mouth, aud as successfully worked more than fifty years ago. After a while the works were abauoouea anu allowed to crumble to ruin, whHe the rugged hills along the stream tnat were stripped or their timber aud used for coaling purposes, grew up with another growth of dense thicket iu many places, and u,ntil the discovery of oil Ujere two years ago was about as wild lookingaud desolate country as can be Imagined. Now a hundred fires gleam along its course and the roar of a hundred engines is mingled at noon and midnight with the shrill whistle of these mighty workers, that reverberates, far down and out upon the broad Allegheny givipg evideuce of the life and bustle and ' development now going on. Very happy to learn of the enterprise that has been manifested in the action of the citizens of Warren in securing so many railroad advantages, as well as otner improvements that must im prove the growth' and enhauee the brosperity Of your city.
