"Thb Hamptons," Long Island, Sun. day. July 18 : The Rev. T. DeWitt Tal mage, D.D., is continuing his series of sermons on Voices ot Gardens and Fields." His subject to-day -was, " The Cheap Sparrow," and his text, Luke xii, v. 6 : " Are not five sparrows sola lor two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God?" The sermon is eminently characteristic of the preach er, enforcing lessons of value to all, be cause having to do with the affairs of common life; and containing passages to comfort and console those in trouble.

Write forte rma You see the Bible will not limited in the choice of symbols. There is hardly a beast or bir.l, or insect, which has not been called to illustrate some divinp truth the ox's patience, the ant's industry, the spider's skill, the hind's sure-footed i ess. the eagle's speed, the dove's gentleness, and even the sparrow's meanness imd insignifican -e. In Oriental countries none but the poore t people buy the sparrow and eat it so very little meat is there on the bones, and so very poor is it, what there is of it. The comfortable population would not think of touchiiiR i any more than you would think of rating a bat or a lamprel. Now, says Jesu, if God takes such good care of a. poor bird that is not worth a cent, won't he care for you, an immortal? "We associate God with revolutions. We can see a divine purpose in the dis covery f A merica, in the invention of the art of printing, in the exposure of the Gunpowder Plot, in the contrivance of the needle-gun, in the ruin of an Austrian or Napoleonic despotism ; but how hard it is to see God in the minute nersonal affairs of our lives ! We think of God as making a record of the starry host, but cannot realize the Bible truth that He knows how many hairs are on our head. It seems a grand thing that God provided food for hundreds of thousands of Israelites in the desert; but we cannot appreciate the truth that, when a sparrow is hungry, God stocp-s down and opens its mouth and puts the seed .n. We are struck with the idea that God fills the universe with His presence; but cannot understand how He encamps in tne crysiai paiace oi a dewdrop, or finds room to stand, without being crowded, between the alabaster pillars of a pond lily. We can see God. in tlii- clouds. Can we see God in these flowers at our feet? We are apt to place God on somo great stage or to try to do it expecting Him there to act out Mis stupendous projects ; but we forget that the life of a Cromwell, an Alexander, or a Washington, or an arcnangei, is noi more under inspection than j-our life or mine. Pompey thought there must be a mist over the eyes of God because He so much favored Ciesar. But there is no such mist. He sees everything. AVe say God's path is in the great waters. True enough: out no more certainty than He is in the water in the glass on the table. We say God guides the s ars In V ;r c-f.. M sr:i:i:-"t ?r i' It! but no uitr- i-ei-talii tni h . h - - : hat de cides which P'tti or.-t ityo!i s all taKO in coming to cliu c:'.. I ..Vrstand that Go do.- not sit upon an' indifferent r unsvmpatlii-tic throne, but that He sits don besid-- you to-day, an ! stands be side me to-day, and i:u a"iir of ur lives is so insignificant but that it is of impor tance to God. In the fi. st place : God chooses for us our occupation. I am amazed to see how many people there are dissatisfied with the work they have to do. I think three-fourths wish they were in some other occupation, and they spend a great deal of time in regretting that they got in the wrong trade or profession. I want to tell you that God pu' into operation all the influences which led you t thi-i partic ular choice. Many of you are not in the business that you expected to be in. You started for the ministry and learned mer chandise ; you started for tiie law and you ar-: a physician ; you preferred agri culture and you became a mecha. ic. You thought one way ; God thought an other. But vou ought not to sit down and mourn over tip- past. You are to remember that God a beneficent God, a kind God, a loving God arranged all these circumstances by which you were made wha vou are. Hugh Miller says : " I will be a stone mason ;" God says : " You will be a geologist." Davi goes out to tend his father's sheep ; God calls him to govern a nation. Saul goes out to hunt -his father's asses, and before he get back iii.ds the crown of mighty dominion. How much happier would we be if we were content with the places God gave us! God saw your temperament and all the circjmstiiiicos by which you were surrounde 1, and I believe nine-tenths of you are in the work you are best fitted for. I hear a great racket in my watch, and I find that the hands, and the wheels, and the springs are getting out of their plaoes. i send it down to the jeweler s and say: Over, aul that watch and teach the wheels, and the spring, and the hands to iniii their own business '' You know-a man having a largo estate. He gathers his working hands in the morning, and says to one: Vou go ana trim that vine;" to another: "You plough that tough glebe;" and each oae goes to his particular work. The o ner i if t o e tate points the man to what lie knows h! can do best, and so it is with the Lord. He calls u up and po nts us to that field lor wh-ch we are best fitted. So that the lesson for to-day, coming from this subject, is: "Stay cheerfully where God puts ou." I remark further: That God has ar ranged the place of our dwelling. What particular city or town, street or houSo you shall live in, seems to bo a mere matter of accident. You g. out to hunt i for a house, and you happen to pass up i. a certain street, and happen to see a I sign, and you scleet that house. Was it i all happening so? O. no! God guided you in every step. He foresaw the futute. ' He knew all your eircumst nces, and He I selected just that one house as better for i you than any one of the ten thousand ( habitations in the city. Our house, how ever humble the roof an 1 however lowly ': the portals, i- as near God's heart as an ; Alhambra or a Kremlin. Prove it, j-ou ' say: Proverbs ill, 33 : 'Hebleseth the ! habitation of the juft." ' I r mark further: That God arranges rail our friendship. Yon were driven to . the waii. Vou found a nan just at that -I crisis who sympathized with you nd i helped vou. You say; "How lucky I i was !" There was no luek about it. God sent that friend Just as certain as he sent - the . angel to strengthen Christ. Your domestic friends, your business friends, your Christian friends, God sent them tc bless you, and if any. of them have proved traitorous, it is only to bring out the value of those who remain. If some die, it is only that they may stand at the outpost of heaven to greet ybu at your coming. You always will kave friends warm hearted friends, magnanimous friends; and when sickness comes to your dwell ing, there will be watchers ; when trouble comes to your heart, there will be gentle fingers to close the eyes and fold the hands, and gentle lips to tell of a resur rection. O, we are compassed by a body guard oi friends ! Every man, if he has behaved himself well, is surrounded by three circles of friends those of the outer circle wishing him well: those in the next circle willingtohelp him ; while close up to his heart are a few who wouia die for him. God pity the wretch who has not any friends! He has net be haved well. I remark again : That God puts down the limit to our temporal prosperity. The world of finances seems to have no God in it. You cannot tell where a man will land. The aflluent fall; the poor rise. The ingenious fail; the ignorant succeed. An enterprise opening grandly shuts in bankruptcy, wtuie out oi me peat dug up from some New England marsh the millionaire builds his fortune. The poor man thinks it is chance that keeps him down ; the rich man thinks it is chance which hoists him ; and they are both wrong. It is so hard to realize that God rules the money market, and has a hook in the nose of the stock gam bler, and that all the commercial revolu tions ot the world shall result in the very best for God's dear chil-'ren. My brethren, do not kick against the divine allotments. God knows ;ust how much money it is best for you to lo e. You never gain unless it is best for you to gain. You go up when it is best for you to go up, and go down w hen it is best for you to go down. Prove it, you say. I will lioiuans viii, 28: "All things work together for good to them that lore God." You go into a factory and you see twenty or thirty wheels, and they are going in different directions. This hand is rolling off this way, and another hand another way ; one down and another n Yon sav: " AVhat confusion in a factory!" O. no! all these different bands are only different parts of the ma chinery. So I go into your life and see strange things. Here is one providence pulling you one way, and another in another way. But these are different parts of one machinery by which He will advance your everlasting and present well-being. Now you know that a sec ond mortgage, anil a tnira ana iounn mortgage, is often worth nothing. It is the first mortgage that is a good invest ment. I have to tell you that every Christian man has a first mortgage on every trial, and on every disaster, and it must make a payment of eternal advan tage to his soul. How many worriments it would take out of your heart, if you believed that fully. You buy goods and hope the price will go up, but you are in a fret and a frown for fear the price will go down. You do not buy the goods using your best discretion in the matter, and then say : " O Lord, I have done the best I could ; I commit this whole trans action into thy hands." That is what religion is good for, or it is good for nothing. There are two things, says an old proverb, you ought not to fret about: First, things that you can help; and second, things which you cannot help. ft rmi pin hidn them, whv do Tou not apply the remedy? If you cannot help them, you might as well surrender first as last. My dear brethren, do not sit any longer moping about your lodger. DO IlOt Sit lOOKHlg SO uesriiiuai., your stock of unsaleable goods. Do you think that God is going to allow you, a Christian man, to do business alone? God is the controlling partner in every firm; and although your debtors may abscond, although your securities may fail, although your store may burn, God will, out of an infinity of results, choose for you the very best results. Do not have any idea that you can overstep t!.e limit that God has laid down for your prosperity. You will never get one inch beyond it. God has decided how much prosperity you can stand honorably, and employ usefully, and control righteous ly ; and at the end ot 188C. you will have just so many doliars and cents, just so much wardrobe, just so much furniture, just so many bonds and mortgages, and nothing more. I will give you one hun dred dollars for every penny beyond -that. GoU has looked over your lire. He knows what is best for yc u, and He is going to bless you in time, anu oiess you for eternity ; and He will do it in the betway. . . Your little child says: " Tapa, I wish you would let me have that knife." "No," vou say, " it is a sharp knife, and you will cut yourse f." He says: "I must have it." "But you cannot have it," you reply. He gets angry ana rea in the fae, and says he will have it; but you say he shall not have it. Are you not kind in keeping it from him? So God treats his children. I say : " I wish, heavenlv Father, to get that." God says : ""No. my child." I say : " I must nave it." God says: "You cannot have it." I get angry and say : " I will have it." God savs : "You shall not have it," and I do notget it. Is he not kind and loving and the best of Fathers? Do you tell me thcr- is no rule and regulation in these things? Tell that to the men who believe in no God and no Bible. Tell it not fc me. A man of large business concludes to go out of his store, leavi g much of his invBKtinmta in the business, and he says to his sons: "Now, lam going to leave this business in your hands. Perhaps I may come back in a little while, and per haps not. While I am gone you will please to look after affairs." After awhile the father come back and i nds everything at loose ends, and the whole business seems to be going wrong. He says : "I am going to take possession of this business you know I never fully surrendered it ; and henceforth consider ourselves subordinates." Is he not "right in doing it? He saves the business. The Lord seems to let us go ou in life, auided by our own skill, and we make miserable work of it. God comes down to our shop or our store, and tays: "Things are going wrong. I come to take charge. I am master and I know what is best, and I proclaim my author ity." We are merely subordinates. It H like a boy at school with a long sum that he cannot "do. He has been working at it for hours, making figures here and rubbing out figures there, and it is all mixed up ; and the teacher, look ing over the boy's shoulder, knows that he cannot get out of it, and cleaning the " Baffin again." Just so God does to us. Our affairs get into an inextricable entanglement, and He rubs everything out and says: "Begin again." Is He not wise and loving in so doing? . ' , 1 think tb tremble !s. that there Is so is laree a difference - between the- dlvin and the human estimate as to what enough, but I never heard of any one who had enough. What God calls enough for man, man calls too little. What man calls enough, God says is too much. The difference between a poor man and a rich man is only the differ ence in banks. The rich man puts his money in the Nassau Bank, or the Park Bank, or Fulton Bank, or some other bank ot that character, while the peor man comes tip and makes his invest ments in the Bank of Him who runs all the quarries, all the mines, all the gold, all the earth, al! heaven.

To such people I bring the condolence of this Christian truth. You may have seen a map on which is described, with red ink, the travels of the children of Israel through the desert to the Promised Land. You see how they took this and that direction, crossed the river and went through the sea. Do you know God has made a map of your life with paths leading up lo this bitterness and that success, through this river and across that sea? but, blessed be God ! the path always comes out at the Promised Laud. Mark that! Maik that ! I remark again : That all those things that seem to be but accidents in our life, are under the divine supervision. We sometimes seem to be going helm less and anchorless. You say : " If I had some other tiade : if I had not gone there this summer ; if I had lived in some tlier house." You have no rigi.t to say that Eerytear you wept, every step you hare taken, every burden you have carried, is under divine inspection, and that i-vent which startled your whole household with horror, God met with perfot placidity, because He knew it vwas for your good. It was part of a great plan projected long ago. In eter nity when you come to reckon up your mercie , vou will point to that affliction as one of your greatest blessings. God has a strange way with us. Joseph found his wn.v to the prime minister's chair by being pushed into a pit; and to many a Ctiristian dowu is up. The wheat must be r.aiied ; the quarry must be blasted; the diamond must be ground; the Christian must be afflicted; and that single event, which you supposed stood entirely alone, was a connecting link be tween two great chains, one chain reach ing through all eternity past, and the other chain reaching through all eternity future, so small an event fastening two eternities together. A missionary, coming from India to the United States, stopped at St. Helena while the vessel was taking water. He had his little child with him. They walked along by an embankment, and a rock at that moment became loosened, and falling instantly, killed the child. Was it an accident? Was it a surprise to God? Had he allowed his servant, after a life of consecration, to come to Kiich a trial? Not such is my God. There are no accidents in the divine mind, though they may seem so to us. God is good and by every single inci dent of our life, whether it b- adverse or otherw so, before earth and heaven, God will demonstrate his mercy. I hear a man say: "That ilea te'Utles God. You bring Him down in such little things." O ! I have a nmr roun ap preciation of God in 1.-. th' things that I have in great things. The mother does not wait until the child hsmas'ne ! its foot or broken its arm berore she admin isters sympathy. The child comes in with the least bruise, and the mother kisses it. God does not wait f r some tremendous crisis ia our life, but conies down to us in our most insi i il'eant trials, and throws over us the arms of His mercy. Going up the White Mountains some years ago, I thought of that pass-jre in the Bible that speaks of God a w!sM g mountains in a balance. As I lool:e. s.t those great mountains, I thong : t u it be possible that God can put these great mountains in scales? It w s, an iviea too great for me to grasp; but wh n I saw a blue-bell down by the mule's .not, on my way up Mour.t Wan i .1 !. then I understood the kindness : goo-i e s of God. It is not so nine T G d ia great things I can unde. stand, but of God in little tilings. There is a man who says : "That doc trine can .ot be irw bee: so t do go so very wrong." I i ; i- is vo in consistency on the part r God, but a lack of understanding on our part. I hear t at men are mniiig very fine shawls in 6ome factory.
