Your teachera have "sewed pillows under your arm-ho'ca," and flattered your vanity .till some of you actually believe, like our revered predecessors the old Fhari.ees who rrncified the carpenter's Son and stoned the Prophets, that you re "Letter than other men," Cut the (act is, you are no better than you ought to be and you know it. If you bad your deserts, the Lord only knows what would become of you. And yet you are as unconcerned, as thotigh there h no prospect of the levil ver getting his due. But I feel concerned lor you; and since your teach era have their hands full of political matters in getting up petitions against the Nebraska bill, converting the hea then, and furnishing bibles to those -who want bread aiid potatoes, and in bringing all sorts of railing accusations against the World's Teople, thereby "alusini? tlieir tetters." I propose to Jook into y our matters a little, and thus pa) the m in their own coin, 4wilhout money and without price." My text is taken I'ro.Ti an old book whiih gives an account of a man of sorrows who was acquainted wittignei and w ho "irnf 0601 doing good." And you prolesa to le his lolloweis! What haiejou been about? All around you are tlie poor, the aged, the irifirm; pale care-orn widows hall'-lamished nd ragged children wills no means of getting the nec essaries, to say noth ing of the comforts of life. They have tailed at vour doors half of them in vain; and gone supje rlesa to l ed, and shivering with the cold. In turning a deaf ear to their supplications, you have silenced the up-braidmgs of your consciences, by pleading your ignor ance ol their true condition, and shut your doors in their faces, lest a state ment of their wants and deserts might take away the last fxiiise invented by your ingenious uiultaritableiiets. Why did you not like (he poor Nazarine who had not where to lay his head, "go about"---into the nairow streets, dark lanes, and shackling old houses of the city, and learn the truth by person al observation? Were vou afraid of soiling your silks, tali is, and brocades, by coming in contact with haggard want, and squalid destitution? Perhaps you pray for the poor? Very likely, tor your prayers cost noth ing and ten thousand o't them.tliough as long as a railroad, would not feed a hungry child, or wipe the frozen tear from the eye nt Hie widow. 1 his eccnomy in natters of relieirm end nioral tint) , ci..ly reveals Hit itut that you hate more tsi'h than works, and precious little ol either. And, 0, mr beloved! look at your churthes. Think of the thousands and scores of thousands of dollars ex pended in building them and for what? That j ou might learn humility from ostentation, and duty (rem a violation of every principle of the gospel you profess! The interest on the money mvesif a in inese pnes 01 stone, rjricx, and mortar, made for the purpose ol bringing Ood within reach ot his de luded offspring, and keeping him there would teed all the hungry, clothe Ih naked, and educate all the neglect ed children! And when the doors 1 t. t 1 1 a inose "temples maae witn hands" are thrown open, on the Sabbath, you go inert wim useless nnery enougn 10 pay all the taxes of the county and State, and leave a surplus to pay the deposits 01 me oroten uanas. These things ought not so to be. "He that hath an esr, let him hear what the spirit saith to the churches." And remember ihat the severest reproofs ana most areaaiui maledictions uttered by the Teacher sent of God, were ad dressed not to the "people of the world," as you have been in the habit or thinking, but to the punctilious and praying rtli ttion isti of those days. This your teachers have neglected to tell you. lei ause ou lure them to mm ister to your edification and eomjort dui 11 is so, neveiuieiess. Ana, let me further say to y ou, "a in fear of God," that "pure religion, and unde filed, be fore God and the Father, is Mil to Visit the fatherless and widows in thei s3icticns, and to keen himself unspol ted from the world." And, that you may "make your calling and election sure," be entreated to turn over a new leaf in the book of your experience and profit from these timely and needfu AMEN. 4uditob Duv Wov't SriAK.

Atir, Sir The Cherry Pectoral is mnch inqui- f ted alter, several ol our best Physicians have used it, three of them in their own case and always with the happiest rflects. The numerous patent . medicines alwaya before them, lead to incredulity in regard to every new remedy; and it is only after undoubted evidence of value in any article,that anything like a general confidence can be excited. The unrivalled excellence of Ibis combina tion ol agents, (in theChrry Fee tore 1) proved beyond cavil by repeated trial under their own observation, has compiled medical men to proclaim abroad its usefulness. It is beyond all doubt the best general remedy we have for thel'ulmonary Afletiionsof this climate; at the same time sedative and expectorant a rare combination of properties.
