the te.MPEit's offers n<>T equal to the lord's promises. What dot's fiie tempter offer ? and what does the sinner gain ? S i an, we may observe, offered :o our blessed Lord nothing which was not al.eady h's by promise arid covenant ot'his heavenly Fa her. " Ask of me, and f will give thee ilio heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession," was a promise te the Messiah, to be accomplished when the fulness of time has come, when the mystery of God has been finished, and the host of heaven, repeating with many voices the echoes of the seventh angel's trumpet, shall proclaim, " the kingdoms of th s world are become the kingdoms of our Lord and of his Christ, and lie shall reign '? ?'/t for ever ami ever. oaiau ur n wuv. tempt our Lord but to an icipute the fulfilinentof this proni .se, and by thus forestalling to defeat if. T ?is malignant ariiftce must needs indeed have failed when tt appealed to the holy Jesus : how fatally it has succeeded with us the teeming wretch, edness and sin which deluge a world, the workmanship of a bounteous, a holy, and omnipotent Cteator, give but too fearful tes timony. Satan can offer to us, also, nc substantial good, which our heavenly F till er is not willing?lias not promised? o he stow; nor guard or extricate us from an) real calamity from which G>d has no pleged himself to be our shield and refuge Are we tempted 'otrangress the bounds o our appointed habitation in his kingdom o ' 1 ? ?> nI ran proviueuce, or u# rcjuv-i mu ?. science, and violate the laws of his king dom ofgrace, lest po\erty should come it upon us as an armed man 1 Let us ful back upon the promises of infallible truth "dwell in the land, and verily, thous'ialttx fed " Seek ye firsi ilie kindom of Go? and hi- righteousness, and all these thing shall be added unto you '* Godliness i; profitable unto all things, having promise a the life that now is, and of that which is t< come." Is the stronger fear which Satai would conjure up to tempt us, the vision o a bereaved widow, and of desolate orphans Such fear is vain : " I have been youn; and now am old. and yet saw I never th righteous forsaken, nor his seed heggmj their bread." Rally to that promise whicl has comforted many a dying saint, andsh,i a cheering light upon the vista throug which he cast his l ist retrospec'ivo glance when about to enter upon the valley of til shadow of death, *' Leave thy fatherles children, I will preserve them alivo, and It thy widows trust in me." Does Satan temp you into sin with the lure of some decep tious, short-lived pleasure ? God outbid his rival for your heart; ofTers you, will " righteousness, peace and joy invite yon, even here, 10 u rejoice evermore ;Maw piomises to him that overcometh, that h shall eat of the hidden manna, and drink c that river of pleasures which is at his rigt hand for evermore. No : God withhold from us, and Satan bestows upon us, notl" ing which can conduce to our real happi ness, here or ever. The kind and skilft Physician would, in love, refuse to us thi cordial regimen for which our diseased cor stitutiou was yet unprepared, and whic therefore would prove fatal : tire nnxiou expectant of our inheritance would, in tret chery, press it upon us, for our ruin. Ho men may lose, if not the posession of thos good creatures which God would give i richly to enjoy, yet the enjoymeut whic they were designed to minister, by unprov dentiallv and unlawfully precipitating th attainment of them, those best can tell wh know, by a melancholy experience, thi there is mirth and laughter in which th spirit is sad, envied society in which th heart is desolate, wealth which burdens, pies uses which pall, honours which inwanii shame, and dignities which degrade thei possessor:?while others can test'fy in haf py contrast with, this, that we may b 44 troubled on every side, yet not distrcsed perplexed, but not in despair ; pcrsecutec but not forsaken ; cast down, but not des troyed ; sorrowful* yet alway rejoicing have nothing, yet possessing all things that there are " Tears that delight, aud sighs that waft t heaven." He 44 ho will be rich," may, to the eye c sense, atiain his object ; yet, in stubbing hi o*n conscience, pierce himself througl with many sorrows. The cup of reveir may stimulate the spirits to unwonted glee but 44 the end of that mirth is heaviness/ for 44 at the last it biteth like, a serpent, an stingeth like an adder." That men ma lose if not the fruit, i s relish, by gathering it prematurely from the yet green tree, h can tell who has plucked, with Eve, forbid den fruit and tasted but shame and misery ?who, wun aoiomon, has tested that pro verb's truth, 44 bread of deceit is sweet to r man, but afterwards his moii h shall be fillet with gravelor who, invited, not by ai angel of the lord, but by the great deceiv er, has sympathized in ihe Evangelist's ex perience, but without the Evangelist's mo. tives, principles, and hopes,44 I took?ant ate it up ; and it was in mouth sweet a: honey ; and as soon as [ had eaten it, nv belly was bitter." The syren, pleasure may deck hers' lf with meretricious orna meats and deceitful smiles, and, in her sor ceries and enchantments, with fuseinatini voice melodiously thus sing, 44 Stolen wu tors are sweet .* and bread eaten in secre js pleasant J but he" who listens "knovvetfc not that the dead are there, and that hei guejdsure in the depths of hell." A Believer's Privileges.?The Bible speaks in very .ig i terms ot ill** privilege of a beiiev- r. 44 All things are your's, wbeiher Paul, Apollos, or C**ph ?s, or t ie I ? world, or iii<t ?r ueam things pre soar, or things to come ; all are your's ; and ye are Christ's, and Christ is God's"? Notwithstanding all his moarniug for sin, and all his conflicts, fears, chas. tellings and afflictions, the believer in Christ is privileged and happy above all other men, even in this present world. When St. Paul aaye "if in this life only w*e , have hope in Christ, we are of all men most i miserable," he can only mean* that if a i Christian could be deprived of the hope ot 1 heaven, and the earnest of the spirit, and the 1 precious consolations, which result from it, then his peculiar trial, his tenderness of con. science, his antipathy tosin, and his thristings .j after God and holiness, would be added to ; his portion of ordinary evils and his renuni ciation of wordly indulgences, without any : thing to counterbalance them. But this .cannot be the case. And the Christian with | his hope of glory, and his blessed covenan. ! ted priv l 'ges, may be, and is in proportion j to his diligence and fruit fulness, of all men | the most happy. Ho has privileges in : which no other can share. Me has a joy ! with which a stranger interineddleth not. | *4 Tin secret of the Lord is with them that I fear him." They are blessed with nil! ontpi'ufil h!rs?in?rs in heavenlv places in j 1 ... ^ j , j Christ Jesus. And it is their wisdom and ; their strength, frequency to consider and i 1 meditate u;)on their glorious privileges, that they may go on their way, rejoicing in hope of the glory of God. To true believers, ail ; the precious promises of the Gospel are (| mido. How important is it 'then, that we 1 should be Israelites indeed, in whom there is no guile, in order to enjoy abiding con1 fidence towards God ! If we doubt whether we are the people of God, how can we ' derive comfort from the promises of God ? We must have this great point settled, and ' then all its privileges come in as ours. Am I passed from death unto life ? Have 1 not ^ merely tho form of godliness; but the pow^ or? II ive I faith in Christ? Am I a chiki ofGod ! Let us examine ouiselves whether we be in the faith. Let us not be 1 robbed of our privileges so secured to lis ' in Christ Jesus our Lord. "Seek first the i kingdom of Go I and his righteousness, and - oil these hi ?gs shall be added unto you." Let us ask the important questiou (Brethren be not too eecure) s What is it to be a Christian ? f How m.iy we our hearts assure ? j i Vain are all our best devotions ^ ^ f f.\nndotlAna hmV I 11 uil laou IUUUUUUVHO wu* vf 1 Grace is more than empty notions, v Something to be known and felt. 9 c Let us not be deceived in spiritual tilings, '? but seek a right path to a city of habitation, h It is the great privilege of the people of d God, to rejoice always in the assurance of b his favour and goodness towards them. S Their privileges distinguish them from the e residue of Adam's lost race.

Saegents Temperance Tales.?Mr. 0 Flint, at the Book S ore and Tract Depository, No. 233 Arch street, has sent us a >f copy of five volumes of these little works,? s stating the impression thut they have not h been sufficiently known in Philadelphia. y They are kept at the above place, for sale, ; and may be had in any desired number. We " shall cheerfully give our testimony to the d excellence of these Tales, and to their siny gular adaption to their design, as an instru, ? ent to withsand the terrible evils of ine temperance in our country. Mr. Sargent . has the thanks ofall whose judgment in tins j matter he need respect, and the gratitude . of very many who have been rescued by the 1 instrum* ntahty of his writings from the pa h j of drunkenness and misery. These tales ) now include a notice of nearly every departnmnf r\ C tho null fpnrn tlin nAmrvtnnmimonf . uivui v IIIV VIIIJ iii/iif wiiiiiiyiiuw>iiiviii . of the downard course in the moderate indulgnnce in intoxicating drink, down to the 1 perfection of the science and the habit, in s belts-lines and pauperism. It has been oby jectod to them that they exhibit too many |? instances of intern jerance connected with . professedly Christian character, and with . the Christian ministry. If these represents., j tions of the evil were altogether unfounded, . the objection might stand. But the fact is t far the reverse. The indulgence in inioxi. , eating drink, is still a known and crying . sin in the professing Christian Church, though tho evil has been much removed by the divine blessing on the efforts of the Temperance Society. The moderate } drinking oi professing Christians, is the war. , rant for, an 1 must bear the respond lility of the grosser intemperance which prevails with >ut ihe church. 1. is lime ihat they who will insist upon their right to drink in- briatiug liquors as the mere indulgence of lux. ury, were made to 'understand, how com| pletely the habit annihilates religious influ[ ence, and exposes their character and pro; fession to reproach and contempt. Who can ask, or depend upon, the ministrations j cf a professed ambassador for Christ, who " tarries long at the wine ?" Of what con solution can he be in thechambor of sick ness, or the abode of sorrow ? The instan ce9 which Mr. Sargent gives of such, an painful illustrations undoubtedly, and the; till us with shame, that there should be roon for them. But let those who make objec tion to them, annihilate the facts which the; llustrate. Whatever injury may be pro duccd by the representation, can one aris from its truth. And the injury produced b; the fact itself must be fur gieater.We cannot conceal our conviction, that th professing Christians and Ministers ofou land, arc throwing serious obstacles in th way of this blessed reformation. The plead their right to drink alcoholic mis tures. as a mere indulgence of nppeiiu against all the pleadings of the misery an distress produc e I by them. They pre fess a principle, in their opposition to ih effort to save the victim of ruin, which shu cover their app' ti that they may not aj; pear to stand merely upon the ground < sensual indulgence. Now we call this stn of deep and injurious character. An we are not surprised thai a writer of M Sargent's keen perceptions, is led to poii it out, and dwell upon it, as he has done, i some of these tales. We think the circuli tion of them, will do much to correct tl evil, and therefore hope that every fami will feel anxious to place them in the hanc of tho youth, and distribute them as wide as possible among all our population. Episcopal Recorder. ELI WHITNEY. The following extract from S'illimar Journal of Arts and Science, touching tl early history of this distinguished indiviiiu a native of Massachusetts, we publish b cause we think many thousands of our rc would be glad to know something of tho i ventor of the Cotton Giti. Wo saw t late residence of this gentleman when Connecticut, and could but feel gratitu and veneration for one who had saved t South from so much dull employment, is painful to know that he was not propei rewarded for hisingenuity."-Watchman the- South. Eli Whitney, Esq., inventor of the Cott Gin, was born in Weslborough, Massach setts, 1765;?made a violin when he w only twelve years old ; shortly after, took his father's watch to pieces, and put together again unknown to his father, a without any assistance. During the Rev tionary war his principal employment summer, was farming, and making wrou?i nails in winter. What dm j he could i deem from his regular employment, he spe in ronairinn virtlin* mftlriniT Inn* nin? I iM ? iwoMvy Mwmiig tVUg ^uia i the ladies, to fasten on their bonnets, in mc ing walking canes, and in similar trials his mechanical ingenuity ; making his o' tools, and executing his jobs to the ent satisfaction of his employers. At the a of nineteen he was desirous of a liberal t uca ion, but could not obtain his fathers co sent. At the age of twenty-three he enter the Freshman ?Joes in Vale College, grai ated in 1792, and gave his father his n< for money advanced towards his educatic In J 793, he invented the Cotton Gin,a n chine for cleansing seed from cot on ; and June of this y ar applied to Mr. Jefforsi then Secretary of Siate, for a patent. I this ingenious invention, the cotton-growi districts were t rippled in value. In J anna , 1799, he turned his attention to the manufi i tureof muskets, and entered into contr i with the United States Government fori manufacture of ten thousand stand of un which at 13 dollars and 40 ce ' etch, amounted to one hundred a , thirty-Tour thousand dollars. The ? which he purchased for his works, was the foot of the celebrated precipice, ca! East Rocf, within two miles of New Hav This spot, now called Whitney ville, is jus , admired for the romantic beauty of its s< nery. Such impediments retarded this i dertaking, that the entire business relati to the contract was not closed until Janua 1809, and the final balfance due Mr. Wf , ney was only two thousand four hundr and fifty dollars. So tow was the state the mechanic art in the United States, at tf time, that he had io rely mostly on his 01 inventive powers, and to manufacture j own tools as he advanced; yet such w the confidence of Government in his it chanical skill and sierling integrity,that th advanced the necessary funds to carry the business. Mr. Calhoun once said tt Government has saved at its two armori twenty-five thousand dollars annually by A Whitney's improvements in this branch business. In September, 1822. he experienced t first attack of his complaint, which threat* ed his life ; an enlargement of the prostn gland. For three weeks the event w very doubtful, during which time he suffer occasionallyi paroxysms of pain, of frc thirty to forty minutes in continuance, ev beyond description. These were repeat six or eight times in twenty-four hours. F six weeks he was confined to his room, the end of which time he was able to wa about the house, and enjoy the society his friends. Early in January. 1823, 1 hud to endure another period of suffeiing i less alarming and distressing than the fo mer. With such alternations of awful su ertng and practical repose, he reached tl 12th of November, 1824, at which time h sufferings became almost unremitted, un the 8th of January, 1825, when he expiree I retaining his consciousness to the last, clo: ! ing his own eyes, and making an effort I close his mouth. His funeral was attende by a large concourse of his fellow^citzen j who assembled in one of the churche where un appropriate religious service wr performed. His tomb is after the model < that of Scipio at Rome. The foundations c the monument are laid at the hottom of th grave, on each side, and lower than th coffin. An arch of stone is thrown ort the coffin, and the structure then rises soli as an ancient temple. The material of th monument is the find sandstone of Chatham Connecticut. The several layers of stom are composed each of one stone only. Oi .
