inebriating bovl. the drunkard imagines
hitmen to be extremely generous and
noblo minded, (pd think) he irjinifeits
these feelings by liberally inviting others
to pjrtike of the " liquid fire" at his ex
pense ; .but to sober rneq bis generosity
appears s the silly favings or mid
man. By. his generosity to his revelling
companions, he is robbing his wif and
children of the proviiion which he is
solemnl? bourid to make for them. It is
despicable generosity th-'.t robs the needy
of their just right to deal out potations
to a comptny of drunkard. But these
are the drunkard's noblest feelings. He
is a stinger to the feelings and exercise
of rational and virtuous generosity. In
stead of having to give to him that
necdeth and to the cause of benevolence,
he gives it to his own criminal thirst,
and thus makes his belly his Ood.
TheJcclings of kindogssandjiumanity

to manifest these feelings to an unusu.il
dngrec; bui instead of being the exhibi
tion ol rational kindness, they ate what
Horace terms " foolish more than en

have come under my notice, there has
been a gicate.' number from tlus than
from all other causes united. Many
drunkards, while in their cups are full of
talk about religion, but -at othcr.'nmes
the? are ashamed to mention it. This
I shows that they are full of the divinity of
Baccis; -not of a holy iTid. ' rf aurn,' let
their hrtpes be whatihey may the -eternal

The ruin it works in the moral powers
of the man is dread'ul. The dttinkard
becomes more than " a Centaur not fabu

wholly so. lie is indeed worse than the
brute. lie not only wallows with the
swine in the mire, and lies with them in
the sty; but he cannot extricate tiimself
from the mire, lie wallows too, both in
heat and cold, by day, and by night. He
is as one that licth on the top of a mast or

And, besides the equal privilege secured
by law to all rerigions every kind of de
ferencc conceded by society at large to
the sacred order, should be rendered, with
entire' equality, to the accredited clergy
of all denominations.- Not to allow these
rights, whether of benevolence or of dn
corum, to cir fellow Christians and fe!
low-citizens, Would amount to a species
of intolcraqje. The Almighty bestows
the sun and the rain on the evil as well
as on the good, though He rejects tho
one, and loves only the other ; and we,
though we allow not and oppose the errors
.of our mistaken brethren, should raver

" Pure christian doctrines and the pure

Christ lias appointed lor promoting the

Saviour knew best how the saving of souls
would be the most eflccttully promoted.
That Ood may bring ultimate advantage
