He hates nothing that he has made. How large
is his heart! It can hold all the inhabitants of
the world, and of all worlds. It careafor cattle,
ravens, and lilies.
Room at the cross of Christ. There was a
crowd round the cross when he died. Very few
were his friends. But if all who, since has crn-
eifixionhave treated in Him for redemption,
could assemble in one place, neither Jerusalem
nor Palestine could contain them. Blessed be
God, the cross of Christ, in its efficacy and say-
ing power, is everywhere. The shadow of it
extends across the globe. Whoaoever will, may
find shelter under it. The water and the blood,
from the wounded side of Christ, have Bowed
forth in manifold streams, to cleanse and refresh
every soul, in every land. The word isnigh thee,

Room in the Church. The Church is for all,

The Christian Church is eatholio. It was de-

tongue, and tribe. It makes no account of the
divisions and separations of this world. "One

If one member be honored, all the members re
joice with it. Such is the Church, in the di-
vine idea and purpose. Alas! that the pride
and selfishness of men should hinder it from
being practically fulfilled,
Room in heaven. God desires the salvation
of all, Christ died for all. Therefore heaven
was made large enough to hold all. Certainly
none will be shut out for want of room; if they
are qualified to enter. In the Father's house
are many mansions. The saifts in glorywhom
John saw in vision, were a great multitude
which no man could number.-Church Union,

There is one great sin, which, nevertheless,
may not be amongst the number of those of

life as a thing to be reckoned secure for a con-
siderable number of years, they calculate most
false. Man is, in every sense, a flower of the
field. The flower is liable to be cut down in its
bloom and perfection, as well as in itswitherings
and decays. So is man; and one probable cause
of this ordination of providence is, that no one
of any age may be so confidentof life asto allow
himself to transgress God's law; and that all of

In l802, a very striking appointment appears
on the roll of the Western Conference, that of
" Natchez," with the solitary name of Tobias
Gibson attached as preacher. Natchez, howev.
er, was obscurely recorded, with Gibson's name,
two years earlier, as on the Georgia District,
which fact only made the record appear the more
extIaordinary, for the immense territories which
are now the two large Statesof Alabamaand
Mississippi lay between Georgia and thispointon
the Mississippi River. The remote appoint-
ment appeared as new sign in the far off South-
ern heavens; to the pioneer preachers of Ken-
tucky and Tennessee it was as the constellation
of the cross to mariners in the Southern Seas.
It opened a boundless prospect of progress; and
the word Natchez sounded like a new order of
march to the itinerants and their cause-that
march which they have since made over Missis-

EASY CHAIR PIETY.
If we mistake not the temper of the times,
there is a growing tendency among prosperous
Christian men and women to lower the standard
of Christian duty. Christ's doctrine of self-de-
nial isso explained as to tolerate practices which
the Church formerly believed it condemned.
Latitudinarianism, not to say antinomianism, is
on the Increase. A morning attendance at
Church, followed by-staumptuous dinner, q nap,
and an evening of worldly conversation, is
thought to be a satishotory observance of the
Christian Sabbath. Ti P . ,

we think, be admitted. The purpose of Chris-
tianity is to bring the animal, the intellectual,
and affectional nature of man into subordination
to the moral and spiritual. Its grand aim is to
make Jesus Lord of the soul and body. Hence
everything which hinders the cultivation of the
moral and spiritual esture is hostile to the pur.
poses of Christianity. But the amusements and

the gospel called upon its followers to crucify, to

Either, then, slip-shod piety is wrong, or the

We believe the Church to be right, and that her
life depends on her opposition to the latitudinas

her.

Blessed is the fact that Christians can rejoice,
even in the deepest distress; although trouble
may surround them, they still sing; and, like
many birds, they sing best in their cages. The
waves may roll over them, but their souls soon
rise to the surface, and see the light of God's
countenace; they have a buoyancy about them
which keeps their head always above the water,
and helps them to sing amid the tempest, God
is with me still." To whom shall the gsory be
given ? Oh! to Jesus-it is all by Jesus. Trou.

to the believer, but the presence of the Son of
God in the fiery furnace with him, fills his heart
with joy. He is sick and suffering, but Jesus
visits him and makes his bed for him. He is
dying, and the cold, chilly waters of Jordan are

useful to him in the way of instruction or con-

own. Do not desire to be what you are not, but
rather desire tobewell what you are; turn your
