Satanic genius can invent, will bo raado

You will find temptation lurking wherever
you go; yes, at every turn in lifo, you will
find snares Ep'road for your feet, and I
would warn you that you gal not entangled
in tho moshcs. Even under tho mask of
innocence will tho tomptor seek to ingrati

to you is, to ever bo on ynur guard against
his devices. He will tell you that thoro is
no harm in enjoying in light ant! trifling
conversation; reading trashy novels, at
tending balls, parties, plays, &e., but believe
him not ; any exercise that will draw tlio
tiiind from sacred duties, will retard
your progress in tho divine lifo. 'Tis true
tho young fchould bo social and friendly,
but it is net necessary that they should
display their friendship by making a sacri
fico of their sacred truths upon "unholy
altars." Christ said, " Come you out frott
tho world and bo yo separate." Sow this
certainly must mean, that professed Chris
tians should pursuo a different course from
tho former ono ; and also, that they should
converse and aot that they may bo iho

A BEAUTIFUL STORY.
I witnessed a short timo ago, in ono of
our high courts, a beautiful illustration of
tho simplicity and power of truth. A littlo 1
girl nino years of ago was offered as a
witness against a prisoner, who was on trial
for felony eomtnitted in her father's home, j
''Now, Emilv." said tho couoeel for tho
prisoner, upon her bc'tDg offered as a wit
ness, ''I desire to understand if you know
the naturo of an oath !''
"I don't know what you moan," was tho :
6implo answer. i
"Thero, your honor," said tlio counsel
addressing tho court, ''is anything farther
necessary to demonstrate tho validity of
my objections? This witness should bb
rejected. She doc3 not eoraprchond tho
naturo of an oath."
"Let us seo," said tho judge ; ''come
hero, my daughter." ,
Assured by tho kind tono and manner
of tho judge, tho child stepped towards
him, and looked confidently up into his
face with a calm clear eye, and in a man
ner so artlosa and frank that it went straight
to tho heart.
"Did you over tako an oath 1" inquired
The littlo girl stopped back with a look
ofhorriir, and tho red blood mantled in a
blush all over her faeo and neck, as fclio
answered, "110 sir." Pho thought ho in
tended to inquire if she had ever blasphem
ed. "I do not moan that," said tho judgo,
who saw her mistake. ''I moan wore you
over a witness boforo ?"
'No sir; I novcr was in Court before.''
lie handed her tho liiblo open.
"Do you know thatbook, my daughter?"
She looked at it and auswered, " Ycs,sir ;
it is tho Bible."
'Do you over road it?" ho asked.
"Ye3 sir ; every evening."
"Can you tell mo what tho Uiblo is?"
inquired tho judge.
"It is tho word of tho great God," sho
"Well, placo your hand upon this Bible,
and listen to wlut I say ;" and ho repeat
ed slowly and solemnly tho oath usually
administered to witnesses. "Now," said
tho judgo, "you havo been sworn as a wit
ness, will you tell mo what will befall you
if you do not tell tho truth?"
"I shall bo shut up in tho Stato prison,"
answered tho child.
"Anything clso ?" asked tho judgo.
"I shall never go to heaven." sho replied.
"How do you know ?" asked tho judgo
Tho child took tho Bible, and turning
rapidly to the chapter confining tho com
mandmcntSj pointed lo tho injuiKtion,
''Thou shalt not boar falso witness against
thy neighbor." "1 learned that," sho said,
"before I could read,"
"Has any ono talked with you about
your being a witness in court here against
this man 1" inquired tho judge.
"Yes sir," sho replied. "My mother
heard they wanted mo to bo a witness, and
last night sho called mo to her room and
asked mo to tell her the ten commandments,
and then wo knelt down together, and sho
prayed that 1 might understand how wiok
ed it was to bear falso witness against my
neighbor, and that God would help me, a
child, to tell tho truth as it was before him.
And when I camo up hero with father, sho
Kissed mo, and told mo to remember tho
ninth commandraont, and that God would
hear every word I said."
"Do you boliovo this ?" askod tho judgo
while a tear glistened in his eye, and his
lips quivered with emotion.
"Yes, sir," said tho child, with a voico
and manner that showed her conviction of
tho truth was perfect.
"Qodblessyou, my child," said tho judgo;
"you havo a good mother. This witness is
competent," ho continued. "Were I on
trial for my lifo, and innocent of tho cliargo
against mo, I would pray God for such a
witness ai this. Let her bo examined."
Sho told her Btory with the simplicity of
a child, as she was, but there was a direct
ness about it which carried oonviction of
its truth to every heart. Sho was rigidly
cross examined. Tho counsel plied hor
with infinite and ingenioui questioning, but
sho varied from her first statement in noth
ing, iho tru'h os spoken by that child
( was sublime. Fr.lsehood and perjury had
proceeded her testimony. Tho prisoner
had ontrenched himself in lies, until ho
deemed himself impregnable Witnesses
j had falsified facts in his favor, and villiany
j had manufactured for him a sham defence,
but beforo her testimony, falsehood was
I tcattcrcd like chaff. Thu liltlo child, for
whom a msthcr had p;acd i r staiiglh
lo bo given her to speak tho truth as it was
beforo God, broko tho ounning devices ct
matured villainly ta pieces like a potter's
vessel. Tho strength that tho mother had
prayed for was given her, tho sublimo and
terrible simplicity (tcrriblo I moan to tlio

How .1 Church was Cured of Frcmonllsia
Tho Hartford Times relates tho follow
ing: A Congregational church in a neighbor
ing Stato got so completely enlisted in tho
presidential contest, for Fremont and Jessie,
that little attention was given to religious
questions. Th0 minister was constantly
prm ,g, praymg aou cxnor.ing upon
political issues, and his deacons and tho
laymen followed suit at tho prayer and '
conference mcet.ngs. Finally, a worthy,
old farmer, ono of tho Mtunchcst and best j
members of tho church, and a firm, undo-1
viat.ng democrat, was called upon to offer
" 0 Lord," said ho, " uphold tho, demo-
cratio party, which has received Thy pro
tooting support ever sinco tho great Jeffer
sonian struggle. Continue t bless that
party which Ins, under Thy protection and
providence, brought great blessings upon
this republic. If it bo thy ploasuro, and I
bclievo it would bo, 0, oirry that party
through this struggle to a complcto triumph.
Illcss James Buchanan, tho tried and hon
est statesman, and guide him safely to tho
presidential chair. Illcss John 0. Brock-
inridgc, the young and zealous democrat,
and open to him tho path of duty as well
as that which leads straight to iho Vice
Presidency. Givo them victory. O, bless
tho opponents of democracy personally,
but utterly destroy their fanatical and in
jurious schemes, if it bo thy will to do so,
and I verily bolievo it is. Bo on tho sido
of democracy, 0 Lord, as thou hast been
for tho past lifty-tiz years, and on the -1th
of March next wo shall witness tho inau
guration of Pennsylvania's favorite son,
nnd tho pcoplo of this country will onro
moro setilo don in their peaceful pursuits,
instead of warring wickedly, section against
section, interest against interest, and man
against his brother. And O, I beseech
thco especially, frco Christian churches
from tho political slrifo and bitterness
which arc rending them asunder, destroying
their usefulness, and turning them unhap
pily into mere political associations. Let
us hear something of tho mercy on tho
Sabbath. We havo already been pliod to
fullness with political fanaticism, and our
minister has beoomo a stump orator against
a good old party which Thou in Thy wisdom
hast upheld so long, aud so repeatedly
guidod to victory, and sustained in tho
establishment of sound measures. 0 turn
his mitul from theso things, and direct his
legitimate religious duties, or turn him
ovor directly into tho hands of the federal
or abolition ptrty, and lot them tako oaro
of him, and provide us with a truo minister
of tho gospel. At any rate tho present
stato of things cannot last. If politics aro
to rulo I shall claim ono half tho timo in
behalf of tho democratic party, eo that now capacities of delight now powers of
thero may bo fair discussion within theso perception now glories of beatitude !
walls Amen." The thousand fancies rush upon the mind
This was a stumper. It was the first a3 contemplates tho awful moment be
prayer ever publicly offered in that church I twecn If anu" death! It is a moment
for tho success of tho democratic party and 'S w'lu imagination's greatest hopes and
its nominees, though hundreds of prayers fears ; it is tho consummation that clears
and exhortations had l-ccn mado agaiust
that party. When tho old man had finish'
cd there wa3 a silenco of half on hour and
tho meeting then adjourned. And thus
ended tho political preaching in that church.
From that lime forward, tho minister at
tended to his gospel duties, and left all
political questions to bo settled by tho
people outsido of tho church. Again tho
society prospered, and there was a bettor
foiling among its members nioro Christian
charity moro brotherly love. Tho old
man's earnest prayer was answered in moro
respects than ono.
