saving mer, we must connne ourselves :
wtrictly to tho gospel to the things of the
kingdom of God and the name of Jesus
Christ determined to know nothing but
Christ and him crucified to glory in
nothing but the cross ot Christ. Our mis-
hiod, as a religious uouy, as a Christian
ministry, and as Christian wnteis, is not
ol this world. The wenonsofour wurfare '
a.c not carnal, but mighty thro igh God,
to the pulling down of strongholds. 'We
wrestle not against flesh and blood, but
against principalities, agaiust powers,
against the rulers of the darkness of this
woild, against wicked spirits in the heav
enly regions." Our King commanded
one of his men, when he drew a sword,
and commencing buttle with it, struck oil
the ear of the (servant Mulchus, lo put up
ihe sword adding that they who take the
sn-ord thidl jM'ritli On sword. The Apos
tle l'aul fits out the Christian soldier and
equips him for his work. The following
are the habiliments for the warfare: The
loins are to be girt about with truth, tho
breast-plate of riyhleuutncM is lo be put on,
the feel are to be shod with a jircparatMn of
tlte gosml. The shiuld of ailh is to bd ta
ken, the helmet of Kavitinn and the sword
of the Spirit, which is the vsord of God.
Here is tho Christian armor our prepara
tion for war. There is nothing . carnal
about it no preparation to war against
flush and blood- We musi hold fast to
this armor the hesvenly armor, and use
it with tkill, resorting to no other, ard
we shall see the tall sons of men in thou
sands fall before us and join tho army.
There wore as many qaestions of world
ly policy and strife in the time of our
Lord and his Apostles as we have now ;
questions, too, involving consequences
equally momentous, having in .tbeni as
much of weal or woe for humanity ; yet
the Lord nnd his Apostles never introdu
ced one of these questions into a single
sermon, uarrative ol epistle of the New
Testament. If they participated in these
questions at ull, they kept it so entirely
dist net from their religion that not u
trace of it Appears in nil their sermons,
narratives or letters. No mau can leain
fiom all that is contained in the New
Testament, which side they were on in
any political issue of their time. In all
they have left us of preaching, writing
ondthe net'on of churches, they have so
utterly ignored all political questions, thai
we defy any man lo show what their pol
iiics wire, or whether they had any.
They never, so far as appears from the
New Testament, in all they havo said and
done, used their station, as preacher,
writers, fr churches, as political engines
and instrumentalities. They kept their
um woik before (hem; kept their ej'6
singly lo it and never departed from it,
nor in any nay mixed with it the worldly
questions of strife, human ambition, pride
nnd jealousy. They permitted not the
carnal, lleshy 3nd sensual questions of
worluly und human policy to contami
nate the pure fountain at which they
dinnk. Never did they allow their holy
mission, as prenchers of the gospel of
Christ, writers or churches, to be pervert
ed into engines of national and worldly
Mi-ife, thus setting fire to the fuel and
fanning tbo flames of worldly contention,
fury and rago. Their mission was I'eace
on earth ; gold will to man." Their gos
pel was emphatically the gospel of irons,
mid theirprince was the prince of peace.
Their Master, in the first sermon he ever
preached said, "lilecsed are Ih&jimcc ma
kers, for they idiall be nailed, the children
of God." Their Apostles said, "Follow
fftw with all men and holiness, without
which no man shall see the Lord.''
We care not whether a man's politics
bo good or bad, whether he be right or
wrong, politically ; whether be be wise or
uii wise, politically ; his polities must be
kept out of tho pulpit, out of the chuich,
nnd out of our religious publications. The
temple of God is holy snvs the word of the
Loro, " which templo ye are, and if any
man fhall defile the templi of God, him
shall God destroy." It is desecrating the
miuistry, the pulpit and the church, for
unv man to mtrcduce politics into lucra
and perverting them from their divine
nnd sacred purpose. o mane meru en
cines to inflame the passions of wicked
men ; to niiiKe itiem pnriies 10 me ureau
ful strifes of Uu se times; to involve theru
in the carnal contentions of ambitious,
proud and envious men, is to prostrate
the church into the dust of the earth;
lo carnalize, eotruptand utterly sink the
Chiislian ministry t
This evil hat been gaining upon us for
years, nnd we are now getting to where
we can begin to see the result. We are
tieginnine to feel what a carnal pulpit, has
rbmn nnu can do. We have bad our
Theodore Clspp, Theodore Parker, so bold
that most men saw the infidel, ungovern

To these we have had Joseph Barker and

and teed upon them with an insatiable

of violence and cruelty. The whole week

up poor mortal, from I heir sins, in intro

and pr? paring them for immortality and
eternal life delivering them for ever
from nil sorrow, sickness nr.d even fro ti
death itself. Let us not stop for a singlo
day, nor for an hour, bat push tho work
of " the Lord, and while the fleshy and
carnal-mindod preachers of politics are
engaged in their work of workllv strife,
let us preach the unsearchable riches of
Christ nnd make all men see what is the
fellowship of the mystery, which fiom
the beginning of the world hath beeu hid
in Cod who created all things by Jesus
lo not sny or scimit, th it nothing can

burned down most, of ths business part of ,
it, including the finest Hotels, largo stores
and private dwellings. 1 was, however,
delighted to sue the burnt-up district
prolty much rebuilt, in good lasiowith
substantial brick edifices. Lock Haven is
a very flourishing town -tho head market
for the unsurpassed West Hrnncli timber,
of almost every description. Immense
mills hie constantly occupied in the man
ufacture of lumber, and overy freshet
brings with it hundreds of rafts of ship
ping and building materia!, from Ihe hea
vily wooded foiests of the enmities above.
Lock Haven is pleasantly bituatcd at t!i"
confluence of the Bald Kngle creek with
the Susquehanna river. Its hotels lire
commodious and well kept, especially the
Fnllou House, where I stopped. . This is
conducted by Mr. Bigamy, frrtnerly of

worthy the name, always attentive and
agreeable to his guests. The stores, whiuli
are numerous, appear to lie -doing guild

in fact, the whole place is lively and speaks
well for the intelligence and thrift habits
of the people.
From this point I passed up the Puiibm y

completion by its lessee., the I'enn'a. Cen

to the Farrandsville side, a road branches
off, leading to the bituminous coal mines1
at Fagleton. These are situate on the
summit of the mountain, nnd ( re ap

cars, are now pushed before it, then trail

wards up the sleep slope, conveyed me in
safely to the top, and afterwards down

mantic ride to witness the beautiful scen

irrnnting them facilities for this purpose.
