'or blinded hv i bigotry, Wo find involved, in them nil, the belief of tho future existence of the soul. It seems to be iaaejtarable from the rational nature; nnd Ve must remark how much it adds to the happiness of life; It is tho bright beacon, which draws our attention from the ills nnd frnilties of mortality; it is tho pillar of , fire, which directs us in our many wan- uvuuya uvur mis aarK ann iroumous sea. If, then, we find it so inseparably connected with our constitution, and so essential to our happiness, may we not conclude that it has some loundation in Nature 7 We shall now proceed to consider a fow arguments which go to strengthen this con clusion. In considering the nature of mind ns an argument, wc would not dwell Upon its immateriality, in order to prove immor tality. Por when we say thai the soul is not oxtended, or divisible, and from this conciuue tnnl what is not made up or parts, and therefore tho soul, is nccessnrilv inv mortal, we conclude as strongly on the oth er hand that the soul cannot bo created. But while we acknowledge the intimate rc' lation that subsists between soul and bodi? so for from thinking this connexionnccessa ry for tho. exorcise of the faculties of the mind, it seems to iis rather t6 limit the sphere of our information, nnd that the soul. whilst imprisoned in this earthly tenement, is out in an imam state oi being. But why. let rac nsk. wore we made ca pablc of lifting our thoughts from earth, to range through the infinity of limo and space? nnd why were not our views limited to the present scenes and enjoyments, if out lot is tho same with thttt of the brutes which perish? Although tho nature of mind does pot furnish any direct proof of the future ex istence of the soul, yet there is nothing ab surd in the supposition, or contrary to those laws by which nature is governed. It bears n-stnking analogy to the transformation of insects. r Tho insect,- when it breaks tho chrvsnlis. and is borne aloft on varieuatcd winirs. to bask in the. sunbeams, is. a faint emblem of the soul, when it throws off the shackles of immortality,, nnd wines its unv to the lierht oi eteruiiy. uut mere are other circum stances, which furnish stronger evidence of the soul's immortalitv, than any metaphys- cm now oi uic ininu, it is ucrivcu ironi a comparison ofthe faculties and constitution ot man, with Jiis condition. HowSeftall wo account for that Instinctive desire for immortality and those anticipations of futurity inspired by hope? It is truo that wo sometimes hear the wretched profligate, who has neglected proffered grace, and whose prospects for futurity are alarming, wishing for annihilation: hut this is nnt renerallv the case: it is tho nature of mind to wish for immortality, and there is an in stinctive horror at the idea of this immortal spark within us being forever extinguished How essentially different does our onticipa tionsof the future, inspired by hope, render our situation in this life. The good man, who is tossed by the ills und adversities of lortune, couia not do saveu irom the melan choly suggestions of scepticism, were it not loritus principle oi anticipation, wnicnieaas his thoughts forward from this dark, tem pestuous scene, to a brighter and happier world, where ho can drink, lrom the pure fount of eternity, joys that never end. Nor is the uncultivated diild of the forest divest cd of this principle, so happy in its tenden cy, to inspire ps with courage to encounter our difficulties, and fortitude to support them. He, too, looks forward with exultation, to the time when he shall visit his fathers in the land of spirits, nnd where ho shall cniov. to their full extent, those simple estimates of I t .1 I - t I . p . nappiness which tie miu learneu to lunn. This it is which causes the mnrtVr to rejoice even it mid the flames nt the stake, and exult when his earthly tabernacle is dissolving, as . .. M .11 i- I' ll out mis tne veil wutcii conceals iroiii n:s mortal vision the untried scenes and enjoy' ments of this invisible world. Now. what inference can we draw from this natural desire of .immortality, and these anticipations? appears from What has boon said, that they tend to increase our happiness, and to stimulate us to acts of du ty. It hos been asserted that they were communicated only for this, purpose, optl (hat wc havp no, reason to expect that they .will ever be realized. But it has been well remarked, that if such suggestions arc listened to, there is an end to all bunefi t or, vwhalever principles nre implanted in our nature and encouraged by the worthiest instinct of our constitution, we mav safely hope that they wjllbef gratified under the government of a Being' who is infinitely' good nnd wise, The same cqnr elusion is obtained by a consideration" of our nresen't means of emovmVnt. compared with the.ctfnception'e oC happiness, whwi, wo are capnble of forming,. The sum of bUr happiness, H is. true, is yci-y great. There is n, great profusion of enjoyment furnished pyitho pharms oi 60pif ety, the pleasures of tho Imagination, and by the inexhaustible riches, of '.be under Btandincr. .But ill no caso does tliu measure of dur' happiness approach near to that of which wu. can conceive, I? rom this arises that, ipterp&tc which, Is universally taken, in fictitious writings, Honco tho sensual para dise of thaftlohorneUw; and from this urises the Christian's pleasure when contemplating that Heaven, where rnan, washed in the, purifying blood of n Sa.viour, lauds his mer its to on endless eternity. It may be remark ed,, that thKte arc Indications of a moral ' MiM L,ucy I'Heip. cine fla at ueorgtown, u. C.f 1888, btwtf y wTcutwo yean or'nge. government in thitf world, whjelr afford strong presumptions for a future retribution In order tp sec tho force of thiB.obeervalionj ,U will bo necsfcsary to consider, the state of iriind, when under tha Influence of re-! morse A murderer, who knows lluit ntrWmnn being witnessed Hi crime, fears no trial be fore any earthly tribunal, But still, this Is not sufficient to quiet his conscience. If he retires from the haunts of man, and endeav ors to hide himself in the recesses of nature, a voice seems to proceed from every object to show tho atrocity of his crime. The woods, Jn their plaintive sighings.cem to whisper the nnmo of tho murdered one, nnd his dying groans and shrieks are borne on the winds of night: he meets n spectre in every shade, nnd. enrth herself seems to lift up a cry to Heaven to shake fiom her bo som so foul a criminal. If ho. plunges into; active scenes of life, and endeavors to hush thu bodings or his imagination by the hurry of dissipation and the bustle of business, here, loo, fs ho persecuted by his conscience) ho fears to look even his friends in their faces, for fear that his guilt will appear, through the disguises of iis countenance 5 nnd his condition realizes the truth of the; divine saying, "The wicked, fleo when no mnn niirsutlb." And under such awful nn- prehensions ho has often been known to re veal his guilt, and deliver himself un to justice, lads of tins sort nre surely -strong r r . r... . M . inuuis ui a imure mnuuiion. Wo have hitherto said nothing of the principle of curiosity. Tho situation of man is very different from that of the lower animals; their views'are limited to the pres ent moment, nnd they lire under the imme dinte guidance of naturo : but man is di reeled by his own understanding. Ho not satisfied to know the nature of the ob jects around him, but his researches pene trate into the deep and hidden principles of mailer; lie seeks the mineral embosomed in its nntivn earth; hu traces the handy work inanship of God in the geological structure of the rock ; nnd, not satisfied with these limited excursions, ho turns himself to the slarry vault of heaven, and thera wonders amid a labyrinth of worlds. J hese considerations arc sufficient to show that the principle of curiosity can never uo grniiuca until another and more pcrfi'd state of beincr. If a belief in a fu lure state is so essential to our happiness, and conducive to virtuous habits, why, it may be asked, were not the evidences for it more striking to human reason, and why were we nol afforded a clearer view of the eniovments and occupations of ctcrnhv? To this it may be replied, that our. .views of it iiituro siaie mignt unvo peen ?o strong as to dampen all our exertions, nnd make eve ry thing here appear unworthy of our pur suit; accustomed as we should bo to dwell upon the glories of heaven, the scenes and enjoyments of this lower world would have no effect upon us.or, as. the poet has finely expressed it, A moms ot higher life wJutil only damp The icIiooI-Iio'm tatk, nnil ipotl fill pUjful lioun; Nur cuulil the cliilil of rcaion, fertile man, With vigor through thta infant being drudge, Did Ijripliter world Ihia full uumtngleil IiIimi Dlrcloainj, daiile und diuho the mind.' We think the. foregoing observations af ford sufficient cvidenco for the Tuturo state It is true that we cannot, by strict dcmonslrn lion, prove tho fact; yet wc. think there is no absurdity in the supposition. Nay, but there is an absurdity in a contrary one; for as it was before remarked, that when rtny principle is so firmly implanted in the mind, nnd supported by the worthiest considera tions, we have reason to conclude that will be gratified under thu government of n Beine infinite in power and goodness. For he has, by implanting this belief in our con stitution, nwnkened in us nn expectation which in this case is synonymous with a direct promise. And if we should suppose no lias imptunieu ipis in our constitution merely to make us huppierniid more virtu ous here, it would be comparing him to c ijJi.i .1 ii. weak ana loonsn motuer, wuosuouiu prom ise her child, that, if ho would conduct with propriety.she would.givc him certain thinus, and at tho same limo have no intention of bestowing theso things upon him- And shall wo charge our God with falsehood? Attribute (6 him who has unerring moral rectitude and wisdom, what we consider an imperfection, tiny, baseness jn the conduct of tho weakest ot our species jnoi though very man be found a liar, still let our God Lie true.

We passed into a narrow nnd dirty lane, and in a fow moments paused before n mis erablc house. Two or three filthy nnd half- naked children wero playing around l hi door, whilo within sat several bloated per sobs, male nnd female, drinking and blas pheming and singing snatches of ribald nnd licentious songs.

In n low, dark nttick, lighted by a single narrowjwindow in the roof we paused. We looked around us. There was no fire no chair no bed. Stretched on a couch of straw, and covered with a lattered cloak, n girl of some eighteen years lay asleep. Her luce was very pale and emaciated, but there was an expression of patience and resigna lion upon latitat almost made it beautiful. It might once have been so. Her rich au burn liair was parted over herpalo forehead. and ay in damp masses upon her white neck. One thin hand was under her head, and the other lay motionless upon her breast, looking like me tmnu 01 n corpse. The sleep of the invalid was not rest, Her breathings were short and quick, us if a crushing weight were laid upon her heart that she was struggling in vain to throw off. jHefmothcr knell by Jici sidet and laid her ripger upon ncr puise, 1 ne iouch nwoko her.

Her early life was bright and full of promise. She was the idol of" n doaling father the pride of a brilliant circle gdy. beautiful, and admired: and the light-winged hours went dancing by her to the music of her own glad heart. "But the tcmptorcame, In nn evil hour she listened and fell. Her sincerity, her confidingness, proved her ruin, She left her father's house, and returned not for, conscious of gnilt, she dared nol meet his reproachful look.

Oh.the fathomless depths of a mother's lovel Tho guilt the agony the shame of tho past was all forgotten, und the forgiven Alice was clasped to her moth er's heurt, as a long-loved, long-lost, return-ing- child. Her repentance came not too late. True, her character was wrecked her friends estranged her heolth prostrated: but ho who came to save tho lost, poured balm into her bleeding wounds, and spoke peaco to her troubled soul. I enmo down from the attic lighter in heart nnd purse than I went up. Never be fore had 1 felt the full force of that beautiful aphorism, ' It is mora blessed to give than to receive." I had stood by the side of pa tient suffering, and seen what tho gentle ministrations of religion could do for the soul. I hnd trod upon hnllowcd ground and fed upon heavenly food. And as I passed again into the thronged street, and saw the splendid equipages of the rich, and ho pain res, that Pride hud piled, a feeling of pity sprang up in my heart for thoso whom the world calls honorable; and my spirit went back to the poor widow and hur'daughtcr, as l repealed, hall audibly, " Blessed nre tin poor in spirit, for theirs is tho kingdom 0 Heavenl" jUconomr. 1 ho following extract is from Rev.Orvill Dewey's work on the old and new world. It touches upon a subject which is deserving -r J a - I n .- - 11 . ui uvcp aim serious reuection, especially at a time like this of protracted pecuniary em barrassment. It furnishes a useful hint to tho wives nhd daughters of our tradesmen After staling, that in England, economy-and reirencnment in mmiiy expenses is openly professed and talked of, and that tho Eng lishman is not ashamed to say of a certain indulgence, or luxury, that ho cannot afford !t Tl II 1.- -. ., . it, mr ucwi'.y rcmuri.s vcryjusiiy: " This frankness on the subject of ccono my is a thing among us almost unheard of. iSot thut we nro mono wealthy, but, ns I c ceivc, less wise.

Every Texan, at tho first fire, singled outjiis.man.and three hun dred Mexicans fell dead; tho second firo brought down three hundred more.. Then sounded the fearful cry, uitered in dreadful' and almost unearthly tones of voice, Remem ber the Alamo! which was soon feebly nii swered by tho imploring and deprecating cry of "Me 110 Alamol ma no Alnbio!"-U During the whole of the battle the Mexican officers behaved in a dastardly manner, stand, ing behind their soldiers urging them on, while they were the first to Uy. Thyr Were exceptions the brave commandant of the Mexican artillery was shot down at his post, and his body fell across a cannon. It is rather rcmarkoble that Gen. Houston had often visited the battle field before it was crimsoned with blood, and had often exprcs. sed his wish to purchase tho lovely spot for his residence. Tho buttle raised the price, of the land so much t hat portions of tho bat. tlo field were sold within a fow weeks for twenty dollars per acre. The Horsi: an incident. It is re markable thut a horso will seldom fread up", on a prostrate body in its path. Either from feeli ngs of compassion (and even a horse is nccesable to sbch feelings, and though sonu men are not) or from fear, a horso will Mri. diously avoid inflicting injury on one thus exposed, unless excited by ihe" spirit of 'conf bat. In the latter case, ho becomes almost resistless. All his energies ore bent on uYs (ruction, nnd he tramples down opposing squadrons as he would the grass bencuth his feet. These reflections are drawn from us by an incident which occurred yesterday of. ternoon, almost within our sight. As tho uermantown stage, drawn by lour horses, was passing along Third sticei above Wil. low, a small child endeavored to cross tha street in advance of the leaders, apparently, without obserying the dangerous proximity of the latter. One of the leading horses cd. peared to appreciate the sittiqlloir of tho in font, nnd mude every effort to nvoiil comintr in contact with it. He swerved from tho di. reel line as far as he could, nnd endeavored 10 pass it, but being brought up by the rein. was lorcca ngniusi, nna prostrated the child. I ho instant thu latter roll, he stouned as if td allow it to escape j being driven forward by , the hinder horses und the impetus of the vol hicje, hereared himself on his legs, and willi one bound cleared the body, In doing'thisi either from design or accident, he threw the child, with his hind foot, out of the track, so that when the heavy carriage nassed on. it did not run over it, and nlthoueh it caina within a fow inches of it. This may bo in; stinct, but it looks to us marvellously like reason and feeling, Penn, Sentinel, ! From the Vermont Former. "J Mr EditorIii your'paperof the Kill instil rioljced Rev. W.
