Tttö >text is Isaiah Vii, 20, "In the same «lay shall the Lord shave ■with n razor that is hired* namely, by them beyond the ijiver, by the king of Assyria. The Bible is tin t a in est book ever writ ten There arç • .vWmmilitudes in Oseian the Iliad or the ( djrssey so daring. Its fcuagery soravtirnes ^cems on the verge of .. fche pxkleirN, hut off? y «seems so. The fact in that God would 'turtle and arouse and. dpropel men and nations. A tame and limping similitude ,'votild fail to accom fjlhih the object. >(V r hilc there arc times when He employe & the Bible the gentle 'dew, and the miming cloud, and the dove and the daybreak in the presentation of •truth, we often find the iron chariot, the îigbtning, the earthquake, tire spray, the isword and in my text the razor. This keen bladed instrument has advanced in usefulness with the ages. In Bible times and lands the beerd remained uncut save in the seasons bf mourning and humilia tion, but tho razor was always a sugges tive symbol. David said of Doeg, his an tagonist), "Thy tongue is a sharp razor working deceitfully"-"that is, it pretends to olear the face, but is really used for dçndly incision. î In this striking text this weapon of the ^ 'Aoilet appears linder the following cir •uinstances: Judea needed to have some «tf its prosperities cut off, and God sends •gainst it three Assyrian kings— tiret Sen nacherib, Alien Bsarhaddon and afterward NebuchatmVzzar. These three sharp inva sions fhut'viil down î be glory of Judea are compared to so many sweeps of the •i the face of the land. And thee'*, devastations were called a hired ra/nr because God took the kings of As syria. with He had v.? sympathy, to 'do the work W r>aid them in palaces and spoils f annexations. These kings were Anrede ^yfecute the divine behests. ; 4ud now'cTS^ ty,which on its first read ing may have -ned trivial or inapt, is «barged with momiflt.ui« import, "In the *ome day shall the Lord shave with ft razor that is hired, namely, by them beyond the river, by the king of Assyria." Well, if God's judgments are hve had better be careful how other people. In careful sheath these domestic weapons arc put away, where no one by accident may touch them and where the hands of children may toot reach them, Such instruments must be varefully handled or not handled at all. But how recklessly some people wield the judgment of Godf If a man meets with ous'ness misfortune, how many there are ready to cry out: "That is a judgment of God upon him because he was unscrupu lous or arrogant or over-reaching or mis erly. I thought he would get cut down! What a cleau sweep of everything! His •ity house and country house gone. Hin »tables emptied of all the fine baya and sorrels and »rays that used to prance by bis door. All his resources overthrown, and all that he prided himself on tumbled into demolition. Good for him!' 1 ill razors, we use them ' Stop, rny tyrother. Don't sling around too freely the judgments of God, for they are razors. 1 fSome of the most wirke«! business men teurceed, and they live and die in pros parity, and ,eome of the most honest and eoiiseientious- ttfh driven into bankruptcy. IPerhaps the unsuccessful mail's manner hens unfortunate and he was not really as proud as he looked (o be. Some of those who carry their heads erect and look im perial are humble as a child, while many a man in seedy coat and slouch liât and unhlackenetl shoes is as proud as Lucifer. You cannot tell by a man's look. Per haps he was not unscrupulous in business, for there are two sides to every story, and everybody that accomplishes anything for tymself or others gets industriously lied labout. Perhaps his business misfortune was not a punishment, but the fatherly jilisciphne to prepare him for heaven, and $<od may love him far more than He loves you, who can pay dollar for dollar and are înit down in tlie commercial catalogue as 'Al.

Better keep your hand off the Lord's razors lest they cut and wound people that do not deserve it.

If those I fold you no's got their desert they would Jong ago have been pitched over the bat The mote in their neighbor's kl.yiU that it takes a microscope to fin«l it, gives them more trouble than lhe beam which obscures their own optics. > me times supercilious and some times Pharisaical and always blasphemous they take the razor of divine judgment and sharpen it on the bone of their own hard hearts, and then go to work _ eprawlcJ out at full length under disaster, cutting mercilessly. They begin by soft ^APresshms ol sympathy and pity, and Half praise and lather the victim all over before they put on the sharp edge. Let us bo careful how we shoot at oth ers, lest we take down the . but be With air mg one> remembering the servant of King William vRufus who shot ot o deer, but the arrow glanced against a tree and killed the king. Instead of going out with shafts to pierce jnd razors to cut. we had better imitate the trierai of Richard Coeur de Lion. Richard; in the war of the Crusades, was captured and imprisoned, but none of his friends kuew where, so his loyal friend ■Went around the land from stronghold to stronghold and sang at each window a snatch of a song that Richard Coeur de Lion had taught him in other days. And one day coming before a jail where he suspected his king might be incarcer ated, he sang two lines of song and imme diately King Richard responded from his with the other two lines, and , hereabouts w jessful movement lis liberation. 80 let us go up and down «he w.irld with the music of kind Words nn«l sympathetic hearts, serenading the unfortunate and trying to get out of trouble men who had noble natures, but P.v unforeseen circumstances have been incarcerated, thus liberating kings. More hymn-book and less razor. Especially ought we to be a 'ml merciful toward those who w ' q great fatyfa A.cVe also great virtues. Vuple are barren of virtues; no verilv, but uo llowers. I must not «uo much enraged atfà nettle along the • cnee if it be in a field containing forty acres of ripe Miehigi ago naturalists told us there was on the mm a spot 20.tMX) miles long, but from the i)i ightness and warmth I » good deni of afford to have a very large spot upon it, though it be 20,000 miles long, anti I urn very apologetic for those men who have great faults while at the same time they have^magnificent virtues. Again, when I read in Lord shaves his î discovered, und at once made for nie pologetic nile they 'heat. Some ti •Tuded it w still. The « an my text that the -ith the hired razor of Assy ria the land of Judea I think myself of the precision of God's providence. A ra zor swung-tho tenth part of an inch out pf the right line means cither failure oy laceration, but GoTs dealings never slin, and they do not miss by the thousandth part of an inch tbft right direction. Peo ple talk as though thing« 1» this World were at loose ends. Cholera sleeps across Marseilles and Madrid ana Palermo, and tçh anxiously. Will the epidermic sweep Europe and America? People »tty: ''That wall entirely depend on whether the inoculation is a successful experiment; that will depend entirely on quarantine regulation; that will depend on the early or late onnearauce of frost; that epidemic is pitched into the world, and it goes blun dering across the continents, and it is all guesswork and all appalling pevhaps." 1 think perhaps that God had something to r have wn do \vith it and that ITis merry ray protected have done as much for . that He as the quaran tine and, the health officers. It was right and a necessity that all caution should be used, but there have, come enough maca roni from Italy and enough grapes from the south of France and enough rags from t atterdermal ions and hidden in these artij. des of transportation enough choleraic germs to have left by this time.all the cities mourning in the cemeteries. I thank all the doctors and quarantines, but more than nil and first of all and last of all and all the time T thank God. In all the 6000 years of the world's existence there has not one thing merely "happened so. God is not an anarchist, but a King, a Father. When little Tad, the son of President Lincoln, died, all America sympathized with the sorrow in the White House. He used to vush into the room where the Cabinet was in session and while the most eminent men of the land were discussing the questions of national existence. But the child had no care about those ques tions. No, God the Father and God the Son and God the Holy Ghost are in per petual session in regard to this world and kindred worlds Shall you. His child, rush in to criticise or arraign or condemn the divine government? No. The cab inet of the eternal ihree can govern and will govern in the wisest and best way, ill be a mistake and, like razor skillfully swung, shall cut that which ought to be avoided. Precision to the Very hairbreadth. Earthly time pieces may go out of order and strike wrong, saying it is 1 o'clock when it is 2 or 2 when if is 3. God's clock is always right, and when it is 1 it strikes 1, und when it is 12 it strikes 12, and the second the minute hand. that God in some and there never hand is as accurate Further, my text tells Fomctimes shaves nations: "In the pame day ßhah the LotcI Rhavc with a razor that is hired." With one sharp sweep He went across Judea/ and down went its pride and its power. In 1861 God shaved the American nation. We had allowed to grow Sabbath desecration and oppression and blaspliemy and fraud and impurity and all sorts of turpitude. The Soutn ha«l its sins and the North had its sins and the East its sins and the West its sinH. We had been warned again and again, and we did not heed. At length the sword of wav cut from the St. Lawrence to the Gulf and from Atlantic seatoard to Pacific sea board. The pride of the land, not the cowards, but tho heroes, on both sides •ent down. And that which we took for the Lord razor. In the awonl war 1862 »gain it went across the land: in 1803 again: in 1864 again. Then the sharp instrument was incased and put away. One would think that our national sym bol of the eaglo might sometimes suggest unother eagle, that which ancient Rome carried. In the talons of that eagle were clutched at one time Britain, France, Spain, Italy, Dalmatia, Khaetia, Noricum, Pannonia, Moesia, Dacia, Thrace, Mace donia, Greece, Asia Minor. Syria. Phoeni cia, Palestine, Egypt and all northern Africa and all the islands of the Mediter ranean-~indeed all the world that worth having; 120,000,000 of people under the wings 01 that one eagle! Where is she now? Ask Gibbon, the historian, in rose po$Hv.. the "Decline cud Fall of the Roman Empire." AbIc her gigantic ruins, bemoaning their sadness through the aces, the screech oavI at windows out of which worldwide eonquerers looked. Ask the day of judgment, when her crowned debauchees, Commodus and Per tinax and Caligula and Diocletian, shall answer for their infamy. As nations let us repent and have our trust in a pardoning God rather than depend on former successif-» for immunity. Out of thirteen of the greatest battles of the world Napoleon had lost but one before Waterloo. Pride and destruction often rode in the same saddle. But notice once more and more than all in my text that God is so kind and loving that when it is necessary for Him to cut lie has to go to others for the «harp e«lged weapon. ''In the same day shall the Lord shave with a razor that is hired." God is love. God is pity. God is help. God is shelter. God is rescue. There are no sharp edges about Him, no thrusting points, no instruments of lacera tion. It you want balm for wounds, He has that. If you want divine salve for evesight. He has that. But if there is sharp and tutting work to do which re quires a razor, that He hires. God has nothing about Him ihat hurts save when «lire necessity demands, and thei* lie has to go clear off to some one else to get the instrument. This divine clemency will be ;elty to those- who have pondered the. Calvarean massacre, where God sub merged Himself in human tears and crim soned Himself from punctured arter and let the terrestrial and infernal worlds maul Him until the chandeliers of the sky had to be turned out because the uni verse could not endure the outrage. Ulus trions for love He must hate Üfen to take all that lu,-(, MU I s our substitute, paying out of rn heart the price of our .admission at the gates of Ireaven. King Henry It of England crowned his king, and on the day of coronation t .. ant's garb and waited, he, the king, at the aon's table, to the aston ishment of all the princes. But we know ondrous scene, the King of heaven and earth offering to put on you, His child, the crown of life and in the form «ïf a servant waiting on you with blearing. Extol that love, all painting, all sculpture, all nnifihi, all architecture, all worship! In Dresdenian gallery let Ra phael hold Him un as a child, and in Ant werp cathedral let Rubens hand Him down from the cross as a martyr and Ham del make all his oratorio vibrate around rounded for our II put a of a more that one chord—"He w ...

But not until all the redeemed get home and from the countenances in all the gat lories of the ransomed shall be revealed the wonders of redemption shall either man or seraph or archangel know the height and depth and breadth of the love of God. At our national capital a monument in honor of him who did more than any one to achieve our American independence was for scores of years in building, and „ uh were discouraged and said it would be completed. And how gla«l we all were when in the presence of the highest officials of the nation the work was done! But will the monument, to Him who died for the eternal liberation of the human race ever be completed? For ages the work has been going up. Evangelists and apostles and martyrs nave been add ing to the heavenly pile, and every one ol the millions ot redeemed voing up from earth has made to it contribution of glad ness, and weight of glory is swung to the lop of other weight of glory, higher and higher as the whole millenniums roll, sap phire on the top of jasper, sardonyx on the top of chaloedonv and chrysoprasus hove topaz, until far beneath shall be the walls and towers aud domes of our earth ly capitol, a monument forever and for ever rising and yet usver done: "Unto Him who has loved us and washed us n our sins in His own blood and made kings and priests forever." most of er li Vi!' ■ i 1 ' . .■nil'll RACE GLEANINGS. Now in New York, As we have said time and again, we repeat that, no one is more opposed to tnob and rioting than we are. And wv ahall be quick to speak out and con ifemn it no matter in what section of the country it occurs. It was not with hate, that a few weeks ago we denounc ed the lawlessness that, was rampant In New Orleans, in which the legally con stituted authorities were powerless to Suppress until a dozen lives had be 211 Facrlflced and much valuable property. Including the the public school build ing. had been destroyed. The law-abiding people of the Un ion hud but scarcely recovered from the effects of the reign of terror in New Orleans, when they were brought fa: 0 to face with another riot and blood h:d in the city of New York. Here, as in New Orleans, the Negro had killed a policeman, and because for the time being he had made good his escape, policemen, the sworn guardians of the peace, aided and abetted by ir responsible white men, attempted to wreak vengeance upon every » : egro they could lay hands upon. In New York, as In New Orleans, scorns of in nocent Negroes, many of whom knew notningof the trouble which Policeman Thorpe had with the Negro Harris. ..were mobbed in the most inhuman manner, and for no other reason than a Negro had killed a white man and, had escaped, and that some Negro must be punished for it. There is not a word which New York can 6ay that will extenuate the matter Hike New Orleans, she has shown her self unable to apprehend and punish according to law, those who violate the law of tho land. New York City has disgraced herself and her State, she has shown herself a twin city In Injustice to mob law and violence. We condemn her and her po lice discipline in as strong terms as ws did New Orleans and her police au thorities. Uawlessne-8 is but lawless ness, and should be condemned and re pudiated wherever It shows its head, whether north, eaBt, south, or west. Doing * and Sayings of the Rice.

One of tho chief subjects of the dis cussion among the captains and mas ters of vessels is the difference be tween the Canadian and American marine rules which govern navigators in Canadian -water during foggy .weather. The signal used, according to the Canadian rules during fog. is. one long blast of the whistle, to be blown at short intervals, or the ringing of a bell. The American signal is three short blasts. With this differ ence in the law captains and musters find some difficulty during foggy or bad weather, especially when vessel?, arc passing one another in the Welland canal and such places. During the re* cent foggy weather much difficulty was experienced in this respect at the en trance of the Welland canal at Port Dalhousie. Navigators of both coun tries recognize the great disadvantage they are at with this difference in their danger signals, and do not hesitate to say that a uniform code of signals should be adopted by both countries making it an international lavv. ; UktAuluAtAtAAAtAiAtAiAua > A i A i A i it > % 1 Ak* -<sre ■ ■ l!
