IfYin things are very certain—that we
ha 4 all got a work to do. and are all, Moro
or less, indispose) to do it In other words;
everyman „pas a ceiling, mid most men
have a greater or less amount of indolence,
which disinclines them for the work of that
tolling. Many men would have liked the
gospel all the better, if it had entirely re
pealed the sentence, "Ili the sweat of thy
face shalt thou cat thy bread ;" had it pro
claimed a final emancipatil from indult
try and turned onr world into a merry play-'
ground or )1;x - tinges dormitory. flat this
is not what the gospel does. It does not
abolish labor; it gives it 'a new and noble
aspeet. The gospel abolishes labor much
in the sante way as it abolishes death; it
leaves the thing but changes its nature.—
The gospel sweetens the believer's works :
it gives him new motives for performing it.
The Gospel dignifies toil ; it transforms it
from the drudgery of the work-house or
the penitentiary, to the affectionate offices
and joyful services of the fire-side and the
family circle. It asks us to do for thesake
of Christ many things which we were once
- lconifielled to bear as a portion of the curse,
and which worthy men perform for selfish
and secondary reasons. " Whatsoever you
do in word of deed, do all in the name
of the Lord Jesus. Wives, subunit your
selves unto 'your own husbands, as it is fit
in the Lord. Children, obey your parents
in all things, for this is well pleasing unto
the Lord. , Servants, obey in all things
your Maiiers' according to the flesh, not
with eye service, as men-please:ls, but in
sing Less of heart, fearing God ; and what
soever ye do, lo it heartily as to the Lord
and not unto men, knowing that of the
Lord ye shell receive the reward of the in
heritance, for ye serve the Lord C hrist."—
This gospel has not superseded diligence.
"Study to be quiet and to do your own bus
iness, and to work with your own hands.
as we commanded you. If any man will
not work neither let him eat." It is men
tioned as almost the climax of sin, "and
withal they learn to be idle, wandering
about from house to house ; and not only
idle, but tattlers. and busy bodies, speaking
things which they ought not ;" as, on the
other hand, the healthy and right conditien
ed state of a soul is, "not slothful in husi
nees,ferveutin spirit, serving the Lord".—

he has so long suffered.
It is now more than four yenta since the dia.
ease first made its appearance on one-of his legs,
in deep and running ulcers. These continued
more than two years. confining him to his bed:
during which several pieces of the bone came a.

painful ulcers. Seven! pieces of bone came from
the arm also. In this time (two years and six
months) howas under the treatment of several
of oor best physicians, (and took some thirty or
more bottles of Sarsaparilla and Wine) and was

Near the close of the year 1845.1 bad an attack
of the Pleurisy and while mesons,., from it, A.
took a severgcold. My condition , soon became
alarming and I grew gradually worse end worse.
The symptoms manitesteddby my rtiseate Were
thole oidinstrlly found in pulmonary affectimW—
lint mine were of an exceedingly aggravated char.
actor. For • long period 1 expectorated.% greet
gruintity of matter, which appeared a mixture of
pus and blood—at timeslit seemed as it I e ai. dis
charging the very substance of the Lungs. My
voice was gone so as to be unable to utter a few
words Niihau' great difficulty, and I experienced
a thousand other paintul rrensalions that cannot
be !obi. One of the mo.t unpleasant attendants
of my disease were chilling sneate.• The cold
perspiration ran from use eMitintlillly, not only ut
night, but also dining the day so as to keep my
cloths at all times continually wet.
I employed every means of cure I could hear,
and was attended by several eminent and akilliul
Phystflans. But thri °billowy oriny diocese
battled all their efforts. They indeed raised me
from my bed, but they also pronounced me incur-,
able.. The last Physician emending me, told me
at one time, that I had but a few days to live—at
another time 1 might linger on • taw weeks or
months, but that it was utterly imposslble.that I
could get well. or ever be able to attend to my
business. Thus, with no prospect of recovery 1
lingered on during the,grester trait of the year
1840—for three months of which period my
friends sat up with me, expecting every night to
see my sufferings end in death.
But last till, a lady-residing-in Southwark, who
h a d been cured of somewhat similar sufferings by
"Thompson 's Compound tt•yrup ot Tit and Naph
