may anUtw in right doing but eminot
bu pun islied for tiding right. II in tho
moral constitutiou oi things, there
can bo ho rewards without holiness,
and ho muiishmeat without sin, then
heaven muat he a slate, as well as a
place, and hell a condition ns well as
a place; then heaven and hell are
not arbitrary things, not dependent
on the will o!the Greulor, hut the
moral condition of the creature.—
Man may Ruder arbitrarily, but can
not in the milnru cl things ho pun-
i-h.-d arbitrarily. .Leaving God and
the Bible out of tliis discussion, na
ture has either by law or accident,
established a law, that like begels its
like, and experience confirms the!
fact that punishment always follows !
sin in this worligBiei'gfbiv if ititin [
lives to eternity, if he- does- not j
oJuinge, will he noJ sutftjr forever? |
If nature should ever Jose its balance j
and fall bade into chaos, and then i
Biart again, is it not most probable j
she will follow the stone old beaten J
truck, and the same cause produces
’he same ellem ? Tlm Lviicf in A the- j
isin does not save man fltnn suffer- j

if offer any resonnble probability
lhat men will Re saved J)t>m sin and
punisment heraifter, if ttio Bible is
h ue, and there is a God who governs
the moral and jmtural worlds.
Our faith in God does nor. relieve
the fact that men sin, and* are pun
ished in this world. If man believe
that Jesus was really the Christ that
was to come, and accomplish all he
promised to do, still men sin, and are
punished. If God can prevent sin and
punishment in the other vflorld, why
has lie not prevented it in this? If
it. is against liis nature foyniun, und
devils to 8u tier forever, isjfc not equal
ly against liis nature ami govern
ment for them to suffer v.t all ? Is
it not probable that if the Divine
power and goodness could have
created a moral being without the
possibility of sin and punishment,
that He would have done it? It is
impossible but that infinite wisdom,
power aud goodness could create any
other moral universe, than the best
that could be created. Is it proba
ble Lie will ever change it r to suit
his enemies, and the opposers of all
good? Man is man, and God is
God, in this world; God reigns, and
rules here, and man sins,* and is
punished here. If he is man in the
other world, God is God in the other
world, and man sins and is punished
hero, will lie not sin and he punished-

a sinner in all worlds? If God* does

It is often asked if Divine goodness
cun punish forever? We reply, Di
vine goodness does not purAsh at all.
It is the will of God that all men
should be saved. lie has tvo- pleas

against the will of God, and is pun

tied is in Chrlat, and Jesus declares
he would have saved Jerusalem, hut
lie could not, because they would not.
It may he argued, man is hero in the
flesh, and there he will ho a '•pirit,
Is not tlm flesh one of Ihe strong
motives to he good? Are there, no
motives in ties of friendship and
kindness? Where do we find the
moot reckless forms of ehniucter: are
they not among those farthest re
moved from society, seaman ami sol
dier, etc.? What will the sailor
lie when on tho wide sea, where all
the lies of flesh and blood are brok
en, and all his restraints are gone
forever? Thousmds are held with
in ill*' hounds dl decency only by the
restraints of mothers, wives find
friends. We need not. lift the vail
to look into eternity to prove men
will nexer repent. Wreck after wreck
drift by us daily. Tliei'e are thous
ands of men in Geoirgitv to-day who
will never repent. They will abide
the judgment us they arc. There
must he an eu4 of strife. Peren
nial nature proclaims the eternal
lelution of things. The oak bends
under the storm hut rises again.- The
ship rocks atv.l reels, the sea breaks
over her (leeks; but when the oak is
once on the ground it never stands
erect again; when the ship careens
beyond the line she goes down for
ever, never rules the waves again or
spreads her cavius to Ihe wind ol heav
en. If men camnot he induced to
ni. nil. Xlufre can b^. no. r?-
peninnco in a government where
there is no pardon.
There is no doctrine in the cliris-
tain system that fears investigation.
We want controversy. Wo are al
ways glad when the out side world is
moved on religions subjects. I wish,
all thu secular papers would devote
half their columns to moral and re
ligious subjects. Wo shall never
convince the world of the truth of
ohristuin doctrines by snubbing it.
The religion of Jesus was not pr-i-
olaimed in a corner. We are - to
teach it by the way ami publish it
on the housetop.
J doubt if there have ever been a
time since the days of Luther when*
the church and world were more
ignorant.of the doctrines of chrif>
tianity. We have had rhetoric anul
sentimentalism enough in t*ke pulpit
and press for the last thirty years.
The church and the-world need un
derstanding in Divine tilings. There
are communities in ueorgia where
the doctrines of Christianity have not
been preached in years, lest some
ones feelings should'be hurt, if- we
appeal to the word of God..
The Jews certainly understood
their own language. Tile living and
dead Israelite all declare their scrip*
tmvs teach eternal punishment, and
if we appeal to the new testament,
certainly Hebrews, Greeks, and Lat
ins understood their own language,
it is impossible for men at this day
to understand the new testamen
better than the Savior and fihc Apos-*
ties who uttered it. The Greek
church, the Latin church, dead and
living, have always held the doctrine
ef eternal punishment. The whole
church of God. living and dead have
always held the doctrine of endless
pimaehmo-nt, with only one excep
tion, and that one never noted for
large numbers, or great piety, or
learning. All government, both
heathen and christuvu have ap
proved the Divine wisdom, by intro
ducing rewards and punishments as
fundamental principles in their
If there were no utterances in the
Bible on this great subject, there is
no doctrine-more fully indicated in
the nature and relation of things,
than eternal punishment. Good and
evil can never exist in harmony in
the same government, and is it not
most probable this strife will finally
end in the eternal salvation of the
good, and the eternal condemnation
of the Wicked. No falsehood can in
its uitimates, prove a Wessiug to
mankind. The best meii in all ftgee'
have believed in endless punishm. nt.
The enemies of the higher morality
aifd purer forms ot religion, have al-
ways been oppofed to the doctrine
of elcffiftl punishment. They are
generally opposed to capital punish
ment in this world and no punish
ment in the oilier. The church Inis
never been the loser but always the
gainer in the open free discussion of
her doctrines. ‘‘Tlu* fear of God is
the beginning of wisdom.”
Keeping Up Appearance.
A member of the sanitary police
force came across a hoy the other day
who was wheeling home a load of
oyster cans and bottles-, and curious-
to know what use the lad’ coul'c> put
them to he made a direct inquiry.
“Going to throw them over into
our hack yard,” replied the hoy. “I
took two loads home yesterday.”
“Bui what do you* use Yin for?”
“It's u trick ofthe faniilv,** gymmd
“I’d just as lief tell,” continued
the hoy, as he spit on his hands to
resume his hold of the harrow.—
“We’re going to have some relashuns
come in from the country. Wo may
not have much lo sat, but if tln-y see
these cans aud bodies and boxes
they’ll think we’ve had talers, cham
pagne, figs and nuts till we’vu got
tiled of Ym and are living on- bwad
and taters for a lu-althy change 1”
The officer scratched his ear like a
man who had received a nyw idea.
It is said of Spurgeon that in his
pointed way lie cried m»*t from the
pulpit, “There’s a shoemaker. Last
Sunday h« wld* shoes that amoun
ted to nine pence, and there was-
four*pence profit on it.” In the au»-
Uu*ncc there was a shoemaker who
had done that very l&svj?.-/ Thu
mystery bothered him uH week, so on
tipi next Sunday lie had his girl open
the shop while he again went to
church. “All., sinner?’ Spurgeon hi -
gun, “sinnin^ by proxy is just as had
