every favor to his church. Nor is there
any surer ground of expecting the; con
tinued prosperity of an individual, a
church, or a nation, than that by their a
bundant efforts for Christ's kingdom, they
have identified themselves with his cause,
and are likely to be carried on in' ils tri
umphs. The very beast of which it was

soon will they be impoverished to beg a

Thus, inspiration explains these inequali
ties, and teaches, that ' a little which a
righteous man hath, is better than the
riches of many wicked ;" that Elijah, fed
by unclean "birds, but receiving his por
tion with God's smile, has no heed to en

that Lazarus the beggar, with a home

the same time it teaches, that he who
humbly uses what God has given for the
honor of the Giver, freely giving as he
has freely received, may feel at peace in
the thought, that all his business is bless
ed with his Father's smile.
Facts corroborate the foregoing senti
ments. There are, indeed, comparatively
few facts to furnish data fori this argu
ment. Yet the writer knows ja consider
able number of instances, in which a
greater or less approach to scriptural be
nevolence, has been attended) with unu-
sual prosperity. Mr. Cobb, vvhose case
has been mentioned, giving away a quar

his income, not only became jvorth $50,

besides more than $40,000. Normand

the law of the tithe founded on a princi

earth ; and as the tithe was a blessing to
the Jews, so regard to that principle will
be always a blessing. We may find facts
ofthe same import in modern times.
Those churches which are most systematic
and liberal in their contributions, are with
out exception, the most prosperous. The
same is true of nations. The history of
New England is a striking instance. The
first settlers were men who, in a great
trial of afflictidn, and in deep poverty,
abounded in the riches of their liberality,
in sustaining schools, and ministers, and

It is not so fitly said that they contributed
much, as that they offered all to Christ.
And it is admitted that New England is,
and in all her history has been pre-eminent
in contributions and efforts to sustain
every benevolent institution and enter
prise. And where is the state or the na
tion which has ever possessed; more of all
the elements of true prosperity ?
But an appeal to facts in the history of
churches and communities must rest on
imperfect data ; for where is there one in
which the efficiency of the scriptural law
of benevolence, in developing land enlarg
ing the resources of benevolence, has been
fully put to the test ?
In closing the argument, the thought
may be suggested, that business, conduct
ed as it is on the maxims of selfishness,
when viewed as a system in its manage
ment and results, presents a picture of any
thing rather than of permanent and heal
thy prosperity. The number! of business

good is closely connected with such insti

is the best index, to the country in which
they are located. If they are in a flour

country will prosper. If they are in a
sickly, declining state, a paralizing influ
ence must be felt as far as the circle of
their usefulness extends. But accordins
to the scholarship plan, while the motive
to secure, and promote the public good is
not in the least weakened, it unites with
this by hojjks of steel the private interest.

We may also refer to the,hitory of com
munities, in confirmation of the argument.
When God issued his laws tb the Jewish
nation, he required, besides dther liberal
offerings, the tenth of all tfieir income.
We are not to suppose that every specific
regulation for the Jews is the best for all
nations. But in his dealings with the
Jews, God meant to illustrate the princi-
ing of God ; they present evidences of the
divine displeasure such as ; might be ex
pected to mark a selfish and ungodly sys
tem of business.
The discussion of this part of the sub-
ment can be made. I do not know where
or how a family would realize so much
benefit from the same amount of funds. ,
I do not know any way in which an in

cause of education, for so little. It com
