llioso who trespass against us ; and love

they forsook his law, he would nielout

posed it, uo e.vy task to lead these people
stray. At length a glimmei of a hope
became visible to me; I read in their
benrtj, murmuring complaints against tho
Author of their existence and happiness.
Tbey wero surrounded hy Heathen na

The father of human misery was now n

forth his venom amongst the people ; the
greater portion shunned him as they
would the deadly Upas, but he succeeded
in saturating their garments with his poi

passed their master in trumping up false
hoods against the holders ol bondmen.
He induced a small body of men, scorn
fully, to derida tho sacred iuslitutions of

flaxen-haired cnpiuin was oe i'.yed at
his apparent success ; ho and his crew act
ed more like maniacs than rational men.
.Soon their wild joy was turned into deb

th;ther by tho lempostuous waves, until
bitter expeiience tuught the visionary
captain and ciew the necessity for a com
pass, rudder, helmsman and log-bcok.
I'ho unfortunate passengers now appo ded
to the God whom they had forsaken, to
deliver them frc ej their perilous situation,
lie heard their prayer, and commanded
tho wind to cany them back to the shores
of Modern Eden. Tho delirious rawnes

camo contagious and spread rapidly a
mongst the people; thev believed vuk-ir
jiMliagtobe wisdom, demagogueisni was
received as statesmanship, and demoniac
communications were as current as the
true Gospel. Whilst thoir intellects wore
thus befogged, they selected the joking
philosopher .r their chiel ruler. Asm.ioii
as tho joking philosopher arrived in the
U.v-ujakirig e.iiy he set up a Juggernaut
god alter th.- fpiee!and model, and com
manded the people t. prostrate thecu
slves before '.ho idol. A people prover
bial lor their virtue and intell .genre, now
laid their faces in the dust and ciied.

The joking philosopher issued a decree
commanding all persons thmughout the
Garden to subscn!e to tho Juggernaut
creed under penalty of being slain and
having their property divided amongst
the priosts of the new god. Notwithstan

Tho people assented, and tho culprits
were arraigned. The demon, who had so
successfully hnrnngued the peoplo to
thrust themselves before the crushing
wheels of the juggernaut, stood ready to
invoke both dod utid the peoplo to de
stroy them. Ho had served them faith
fully, and they knew his power. They
cried aloud for the hills to cover them,
that they might thii be enabled tor-scape
the just vengeance ol an indignant Jeho

When ho entered upon the duties of his

milk flowed in abundance ; honey was!
one of her staplo products; blncK, spark-

iron covered her streets : cold lav scat-l
tercd over her plains ; her horses, cattle.
sheep and swine covered her mountains
and fields : want was unknown lo her
children. Tho hungry of other lands she
fed; and tho naked she clothed. She
gathered tho oppressed around her as thoi
