That we mainot weaken the moral im
pression by dividing your minds among a
variety of objects, we shall confine our
selves to two topics, in forming a right
opinion on which you obtain a touchstone
to all the rest :
L. The first favorite amusement incon
sistent with popular morals to which we
shall refer, is DANCING.
When we say that it is prejudicial to
morality, we are far from asserting that
all who from want of caution or reflection
have been entangled in this or other sinful
amilsements are deliberate atia canietts
enemies of public morals. But we do say
they are culpable for not bovine informed
themselves on the subject; and if thoy
love the truth. thav will thank tho:oi who,

re. tile as this reason is, when emnpare , l
with others, it will be the strongest we
eau urge, to those with whom the names
of duty and of God have less weight
than the approval of the fashionable world
—those who are brave enough to risk the
vengeance of hlim "who can destroy both
-mul and body in hell," but too cowardly
to endure the smile of the silly and the
sneer of fools.
2. We assert, moreover, that dancing is
in conflict with dm te whinge of the BI
IILE: It is true that dancing with its
present peculiarities was unknown in Bi
ble times, nod therefore not an object of
direct reprobation. The dancing there al
luded to with approbation, had nothing in
common with that to which we give the
same moue, except that it was it measured
bodily movement. It wren a solenta reli
gious act.--a, part of worship, connected
with the services of the sanctuary,. per
formed with other devotional nets, by day,
riot mostly by the young, never by the
sexes together, and no wore :111 amuse
invot than prayer itself. Thus Miriam
and the women of Israel connected it with
the solemn sougs of praise to God for the
deliverance of Israel from the Egyptians.
David danced bofore the Ark of Jehovah ;
and in the time of the Saviour "all the El
ders, the 'factotum', of the 'Sanhedrin); the
rulers of the Synagogue, he doctors of the
Schools. and other persons deemed wrier

If we turn to , the • spirit of the Bible,
,we shall not remain, long in doubt as to its
decision on .this amusement. It tells us,to

with Our whole soul, mind and ,heart.—
Nothing tends more effectually to drive.

every thought away from Hint—to stir up
in the heart aversion and tear towards

have the mind of Christ. ',I It creates a
shudder like that 'of ,blas Dimly, to intimate
that it was possible for (Tim to have 'sanc
tioned by his example what 'we know as
dancing. Would net the most ardent de
votee of the dance consider it as utterly
overthrowing any claims of Christ to be
the Redeemer of the world, had it been
on record that lie had personally partici
pated in such a scene ? We aro told to
be followers of the saints. Did they
partake in or countenance amusements of
this sort ?
The. Bible teaches us to pray: "Lead
us not into temptation." Who can lay
his hand open his heart and deny
that be tlirro•is himself into manifold temp
tations by engaging iu the dance ? The
Bible teaches purity. Tho donee can ho
demonstrated to lead directly to every
form of licentimsness. The Bible warns
us against the world, and forbids us to be
conformed to it The dance is the crea
ture of the world and its fleshly lusts.—
No regencratcd heart loves it. Nu sancti
fied soul could find delight oven were
it not clear that lied had not expressly
or virtually forbiddeu it. There is not a
chapter of the New Testameut, which, if
caremily real and thoroughly felt in all
its iteaveuly tendencies, will not eomplote
ly destroy all appetite for the revels of the
ball-ruom Even if we could allow that
the r• teas any force in 'tie :ipologies offer

us that where we are in doubt of the mor

if we commit it. And what dancer is tree

it is possible to conceive of it. But in all

physician who advises it to t4e young,
steps froth his proper province as the heal

their souls. It is, could it oven be shown
to be good exercise, like that dangerous
remedy. of ardent spirits, which never leiols
a man as rapidly toward health as it does
toward drunkenness. But dancing is not
