And now o'er half the world is beaming.

To aid that cause, all else above,

THE RILE I) PRE.ICIDEIt
BY WILLIAM WIRT, of Md.
It was Sunday as I passed through the
county of Orange, that my eye was caught
by a cluster of horses tied near a ruinous old
wooden house, in the forest, not far from the
road side.: ,Idving frequently seen such
objects before through these states, I had no
difficulty in understanding that this . was a
'place )(religious worship.
Devotion alone should have stopped me,
,to join in the duties of the congregation; but
I must confess, that curiosity, to hear what
the preacher of such a wilderness could say,
was not tbeleast of my motives. .
On entering, I was struck with his pre ,
teraatural appearance. He was a tall and
spare old man; his head, which was covered
. with a white linen cap, hiSshrivelied hands,
and his voice were all shaking under the
influence of a palsy, and ina.few tnoments4,
ascertained that he was blind.
The first emotions which touched the
breast were those of mingled pity and ven
eration. But oh I sacred God I how soon
were my feelings-changed-!- the lipS' of Plato
were never More worthy of a prognostick
swarm of bees, than were the lips of this
holy maul It was the day of the sacrament;
and his subject, of course % the passion of our
Savour. I had heard the subject handled a
thousand times: 1 had thought it exhausted
long - ago. , ~ .

eloquence would- give this topick a new and,
more sublime pathos, than I had ever before

I know the whole history . , but never until
then had 1 heard the circumstances so se
lected, so arranged, so colored! it was
new and seemed to have heard it tbr the
first tinie in my life. His voice trembled on
every syllabi.:, and every heart in
sAnbly trembled in unison. His peculiar
phrase had that force of description, that the
original scene appeared to be at tlia!, mo
ment acting before our eyes. We saw the
faces of the Jews; the staring frightful dis
itaions of their malice and ruse. We saw
the butlet;. my soul kindled with - e. flame of
indigna 'on, and my .hands involuntary

the voice of the preacher, which had all a-
long fettered, grew fainter and fainter, until
his.utterance being entirely obstructed by
the force of feelings, he raised iris handker
ehlef to his'eyes, and burst into. a loud and
irrepressible flood of grief. The etfect is in

subsided ao far as to porinit him to proceed.
Indeed, judging by the' usual but fallacious
standard of my own weaknesa, I began to be
very uneasy for the situation-of the preach
er. For I could not conceive hbw he would
be able to lelhis audience down from tbe
to which he had wound them,
with Out impairing tbasolcranityand.dignity
of the subject; or perhaps shucking them
with the abruptness of the fall. But—rno;
the descent was as beautiful and sublime as
the elevation had been rapid and enthusias
The first sentence with which ho -broke
the awful silence was a. quotation from Ros
satin. Socrates died like a philosopher, but
Jesus Christ like a God!
I despair of giving you any idea of the
effect produced by this short sentence, un
less you could perfectly conceive the whole
manner of the man, as well as the peculiar
crisis in the discourse. Never before did I
understand what Demosthenes meant by lay;
ing such a stress on delivery.
You are to ering before you the venerable
figure of the preacher, his blindness, con
stantly recalling to your recollection old'
Homer, Ossian and Milton, associating with
his performance, the melancholy grandeur
oftheir genius: you are to imagine that you
-hear----his---slow i solemn, -well-accented enun
-ciation,- - and his voice of allticting melody;
_you are to remember the Pitcliof the passion
awl enthusiasm to which the congregation
Were raised, and then the few minutes of
portentioue, death-like silence which reigned
through the house: the preacher removing
his handkerchief from his aged face, (even
wet froth the recent torrent of tears,) slowly
stretching forth his palsied hand which
holds it, begins' the sentence- "Socrates
died like a philosopher"—then pausing,
raised the other hand pressing theM both
together with warmth and energy to his
breast, lifting his "sigh t less balls"
and pouring his whole soul in his, tumultous
voice—"but Jesus Christ—like alliod
ho had indeed and in truth been an angel of
light the effect could scarcely have been
Whatever I had been able to conceive of
the- sublimity - of Manion, or the force of
Bourdaloue, it had fallen far short of the
power which I felt at the delivery_ of this
simple sentence. The blood which had just
belbrr, rushed in a hurricane to my brain,
and in the violence and agony ofmifeelings,
had held my whole system in suspense, now
ran back into my heart, with a kind - of sen
sation which I cannot describe; a kind of
shuddering delicious horror !
- The paroxysm of the blended pity and in
dignation, to which I had been transported,
subsided into the deepest self abasement, hu
mility and adoration. I had just been lace
rated and dissolved by sympathy, for our
Saviour as a fellow creature; but now, with
fear and tromblincr, I adore him as—Jp. God !'
