Look Around yon and Sing.
^Think not that the mercies lie wholly
either in tho past or future. Look a
round you. Even to th? suffering saint
tho present is flagrant with love, and
hff can sing in the house uf his pilgrim
" The hill of Zion yields
A thousand sncred sweets,
Before wo rcach tho heaveuly fields,
Or walk the goldeu streets."
In respect to euithly things, have you
not, day by day, food and raimont
This was St. Paul's standard of suffi
ciency and content. " What!?' said tin*
poor uged sajnt, with her crust of bread,
" what! all tbitfjand Christ besides 1"
And when opce set opon the task, the
ingenuity ofti grateful heart finds inun
ifold love-tokens, besides a bare subsis
tence; the alleviations of medical skill
in suffering, the affectionate attendance
?> of fritonds who aro near, the -prayeiful
ij .lomombrance of those far away, the
?>'welcome ministrations of fellow Chris
tians, who remember the words, " Sick,
arrfl ye visited mo."
These things, the gifts.of Jesus, and
Jesus himself besides! ^Forthe gtfspel
treasures you possess are not only the
title-deeds of a future inheretance, but
precious and present realities. You
daily feed on Christ by faith; you live
upon his dying love; you now lean up
on him and find rest; you look to him
and are comforted. Thus it was that
tne prophet Jeremiah, in his piteous
lamentations, broke out into praise:?
" His compassions fail not; ihey are
new every morning."
These fresh, unfailing mercies are
^ours. It was after the patriarch Ja
cob had seen in a vision the close con
nection betwixt heaven ond earth, that
ho made that vow of singular sobriety
and faith, "If God will be with me,
and will keep me in this way that I go,
and will give me bread to eat, and rai
ment to put on, so that I come again to
my father's house ii) peace; then shall
tho Lord be my God."
The Christian needs no more, if only
he have God for his friend, a sufficiency
for his wants, and a safe arrival at his
Father's fjiouse in peace.?Bickerstcth.
Fromthe American Messenger.
A ttaarter of an Hour with a Bad Book.
About twenty-five years ago I formed
n must imimutu acquaintance witli a
young mini of fino education anil cym
mantling talents, anil wo soon became
bosom friunds. Ono morning after
hcIiouI, at a street corner, he liumleil me

tor only ono quarter of an hour. We

while I looked at the obscene pictures
nnd read a few pages in that polluting

never saw it again ; hut the poison took
Effect, " tliu sill left its mark." 1 cannot

causes me great bitterness and anguish.
Young men, as a lover of your souls, I

My early friend, after well nigh ac

How to hear the Gospel.
Rowland Hill paid a visit to an old
fiiond a few years before his death, who
?aid to him, ?? Mr. Hill, it is just thirty
fee years since 1 first heard you preach,
mid I remember your text and part of
your sermon. Von told us that some
people were veiy sqeamish about the
delivery of different ministers who
preached the same gospel. Von stiid,
" Suppose yon were attending to hoar
a will read, where you expected a leg
ncy left you, would you employ the
time in scrutinizing the manner iu which
tliu lawyer read it! No, you would
.,&4ot'; you would bo giving all ear to
h-*ar if anything was left lo you, and
h iw much it wus. Thut is the way I
would advise you to hear tliu gospel.'"
Good advice, well worth remember
ing sixty-five years.
A skeptical young man ono day con
versing with the celebrated Dr. I'arr,
observed that ho would believe nothing
whiolt ho could tint understand. "Then
young man,.yourcreed will betho shurt
Mt of any mutt's I know.''
It ii obsi-rved in worldly doings, thai
men'j fortunes are oflener made by their
tongues than by their virtues; and more
men's fortunes overthrown thereby, than
by their vices.?Sir Waller Raleigh.
Death, to a good man, is bul parsing
through a dark enlrv, out of one little
dusky too in of his Father's house inloan.
otiier that is fair and large, lightsome and
glorious, and divinely entertaining.
It is the great duly uf Christians topul
"IT anger. It unfits for duly. A little
jigging puts a clock out oI frame; so a
little passion the heart. A man cannot
wrestle with God and wrangle with his
Deigliout at the auntc tune.

| PrcservitlioiijJ to prove that nine tenths of the
: causes ol nervous debility, local and constitution*
al weakness, mental and physical suffering, are
traccnblu to certain habits, forming the most sc
ored and yet deadly and fatal springs of domestic
misery and premature mortality.
There is an evil habit sometimes indulged in
by boys, In solitude, often growing up with them
to manhood, and which, if not reformed in tluo
time, not only begets serious obstacles to matri
monial happiness, but gives rise to a series or
protracted, insidious and devastating affections.
Few of those who give way to this pernicious
practico are aware of the consequences, until
they find the nervous system shattered, feel
strange and unaccountablo feelings, and vuguo
scars in the mind.
The unfortunate thus afTected becomes feeble,
is tillable to labor with nccustomcd vigor, or to
apply his mind to study; his step is tardy and
weak, he is dull, irresolute, and engages in his
sport with less energy than usual.
If he emancipate himseif before the practice
has done its worst, and euter matrimony, his mar
riage is unfruitful and his senBO tells him tlint it
is caused by his early follies. These are consider
ations which should awaken the attention of those
similarly situated.
Requires the fulfilment of several conditions, in
order that it may be really the cause of mutual
happiness. Could the veil which covers the origin
of domestic wretchedness be raised, and its true
source in every instance disclosed in how many

their attendant disappointments I Apply then
