when the devil had brought the Jewq to such a

this was done, the devil triumphed and made
merry; he thought himself sure enough of him.
But what was the end of it? his triumphing was
turned to his own destruction. For Christ hang-
ing upon the cross, did by his death destroy the
power of the devil. So we see how God suffer"

many inipediments and lets-wherewith he

now the most part of them become ambitious

Kim. How soul inspiring the language of one of
our Generals: "God blessed our arms volth another
victory." How much more of humble trust and
reliance upon our only help is read in such
soul-breathing language as the above, thes in'
such expressions as we often hear; '' We have
gained another victory," "we have whipped the
Yankees," etc., etc. Do we forget that God
rules in the armies of earth; and has he not
said in his word that "they that trust in me
shall never be moved ?" Oh, desponding soul,
lift up thine eyesof faith; see God's gracious
promises and believe. Then you need not fear,
though an host should encamp against you for
"He that is for us is mightier than he that is
against us." How weak are the arms of our
enemies ifthey trust in their increased num-
beni to crush us as a nation ? One who trusts in
the God of ITeaven "can chase a thousand, and
two can put ten thousand to flight." Then who
would not trust Thee, thou Mighty One ? If
but the whispering of thy voice is heard in our
midst what shall we fear? Buthavewe ziot more

means-like Sunpson-to smite them "hip and

Who can doubt that God is on our side when
his hand is so plainly seen in leadJng our armies

EXCERPTS FROM LATIMER.
1. Let us strive and fight against the tempta-
tions of the devil which would not have us to call
on God, because we be sinners. Catch thouhold
of our Saviour-believe in him-be assured in
thy heart that he with his suffetings took away
all thy sius,
2. Suppose I owe unto a man an hundred
pounds: the day is expired, he will have his
money; I have it not, and for lack of it. I am
laid in prison. In such distress comet a good
friend, and saith-Sir, he of good cheer,1willpay
thy debts; and forthwith payeth the wholesum,
and setteth me at liberty. Such a friend is our
Saviour; he hath paid our debts, and set us at
liberty-else we should have been damned world
without end, in everlasting prison and darkness.
3. It is better one" word spoken with good
affection, than a hundred without it.
4. We have one Advocate-not many; neither'
saints, nor anybody else, but only him, and none
other-neither by way of mediation, nor by way
of redemption. He only is sufficient, forhe only
is all the doer-let him have all the praise. Let
us not withdraw from him his majesty and give
it to creatures: for he only satisfieth for the sins
of t whoicee ar1romSolthat all that believe lin

rn ththa be u ndtmr lhtthhte2ey
not help them. But our Heavenly Father, in
that we call him Father, we learn that he will
help, that he beareth a fatherly love towards us.
G. As far as the earth is from heaven, yet God
looketh dowp-he seethall things-he is in every
,corner. Theking and prophet David saith, the
Lord hath looked down, not the saints. No, he
saith notso: for the saints have notso sharp eyes
to see down from heaven: they be purblind and
sand-blind, they cannot see so far, nor have not
so long ears to hear. And therefore our petition
and prayer should be unto him which will hear
and can hear.
7. Let every man think lowly of himself
humble himself and call upon God, which
is ready to give us, not only bread and drink,
,or other necessaries, but the Holy Ghost.
To whom will he give the Holy Ghost ? To lords
and ladies, to gentlemen and gentlewomen ?
No, not so; he is not ruled by affectiops; he
hath not respect unto personages. Saith he,
"unto those which call upon him," being rich
or poor, lords or knights, beggars or rich; he is
ready to give unto them when they cometo him.
And this is a great comfort unto those which be
poor and miserable in this world; for they may
be assured of the help of God; yea, and as boldly
go unto him, and desire his help, as the greatest
king in earth.
8. The word "our," [in the Lord's prayer,]
teaches us to consider that the Father of heaven
is a common Father-as well my neighbor's
Father as mine-as well the poor man's' Father
as the rich: so that he is not a peculiar Father,
buta Father to the whole church and congrega
tion-to all the faithful, be they never so poor
and despised; yes he is their Father as well as
mine. And therefore I should not despise them,
but consider that God is their Father as well as
mine. *
9. WeoughttobeatGod'spleasurewhensoever
and whatsoever he will do with ue; we ought to
be content withal. If we were earnest and zeal
ous as we should be, O how hot we would be in
promoting God's honor and sauctifying his name!
10. All those persons that willnothecorrected
for obeir faults, that cannot bear godly admoni-
tions, they talk never with God to his pleasure :
they be not ruled by God's spirit, and ab not

cus persons, all liara, drunkards, and such like.
be not in the case to talk with God. God will
not hear them, he cannotabidethem, they stink
in his face, as long as they come before him with
such abommable sins, not tending. to leave
them.

THE VEIL UPON THE WATERS.
I crossed the river a few mornings ago, when
a thick fog obscured the atmosphere. The boat
plied her swift way over the waters; but the
other side was shrouded in the misty veil, and
city spires were seen dimly, as through a glass.
Beneath, the blue waves.shonein serene beauty.
Far up, the whitecToudspiled themselves against
the deep azure of the sky, and the sunbeams
scattered their glory. But all around, thick,
gray and impenetrable, brooded the morning
mist, ethereal as the veit which floats around the
bride on her sacred day; hopeless as that which
the sad nun binds upon her head when she seeks
to find happiness in her cloisters, aiid weds her.
self to a life of weary disappointment. Through
the gloom there came constantly the ringing of
bells and the shrill whistle of the steam, as the
boats with their precious freight hurried to and
fro.
Christian! is not this like thy life ? Out in
thy little boat upon Time's changeful stream,
how often the gray mists fold their arms around
thee, and hide from thy view the Father's house
to which thou art hastening over the blue water l
The sun of thy Redeemer's love is shining, in
its constant brightness, above thy head but
faith droolis under the pressure of earth-born
cares and trials, and the dimness gathers. Yet
through it all, there are angel-calls that cheer
thee on; precious promises that ring like silver
bells through the darkness; and heavenly hopes
that thrill through thy soul, leaving it stronger
and braver. And by and by thou wilt reach the
end, and there shall be no veil of mist to dim
the light of the river of lith.-Christian OFserver.
