happen even in the well regulated family of

but a monster. Ybu could contemplate him,

On one occasion when Joe and Diik were
in town, e crowd collected to 'contemplate
this marvel in horse flesh. While at its
thickest, Joe emerging from a neighboring
bar zoom, where he had just been burying
his nose in a,jolep, and elbowing. Ilia way
to the. tocus.,OL attraction, aaldregsed himself
to the nearest looker on.

, I looked up, but there wasn't a cloud,,the
sky was just as blue and quiet as !my wife,
so ibcouldr.'t be thunder. It might be an
earthquake. That wasia a. very pleassnt

pretty chunky roar, and as there was no
chance of being swallowed op. I thought it
only reasonable !o tat aan observation, for
things began to look as Al . they would not last

To a man of libeiai eiltiCatiiiii, , the study
of history is not only. Useful, 'and important,
but altogether indispensable, and with re
gard to the hisibryt contained "in the Bible,
the observation which Cieeto•makes respect
ing that of his, own country is mach more
emphatically applicable, "that it is not so
much praise4Orthy .to be acquainted, with
as it is shameful to be.ignorant of it." His:
eil ventures of men, may be divided in five
diflerent classes. First, the History of the
world,-otherwise called I.Thiversid Thstbry:
Second, that of particular nations: Third,
'lliat-q1 particular institutions: Fourth. that of
single families; and Filth, that of individual
men. The last two of these classes Are

snoirs and bTographyi- All these elassesol
1 history ate to be found in the Bible, and it
may be. worth your while to discri:nipate.
them one from another. - The Universal Hi
story is shed, and all contained in 'the first
eleven chapters'of Genesis. together With the
first chapter of • the book- -of Chronicles,.
which is }lute more than a genealogical list
of names; but it is of great importance, hot
only as it includes the history of the crea
tion, of the fall of Man, of the antediluvian
1 world and the flood be which th e w h o l e h e .
man race,"(except Noah .and his family,)
were destroyed, but as it gives a very pre
cise account of the time from t:lb Creation
until the Birth of Abraham. This is the
foundation of Aocient History, and in read
ing prolane history Lereatter, I would'advise
you always to reflect' upon their narratives
with reference to it with respect to the elm
nology. A correct of this is so necee.
sary to understand till history, ancient and
modern, that I may hereafter wiire you
something floater concerning it: for the pre
sent I shall only recornmend in your portico

of Genesis. and request you to cast ,rip and

1 firms of his descendents, alter which the
book of ExOdus commences with the history
of the same family, - multiplied into a nation;
this national and family history is continued
through the,books of the Old Testament un
til that of Job, which is of a peculiar charac
ter, diflerieg in many particulars from every
other part of the Scriptures. There is no
other history extant which can give•so inter
esting and correct view of the rise and pro
gress of human associations, as thin account
of Abraham and his descendant's, through
all tile vicissitudes to which individuals, la
milies' and nations are liable. There is no
mho' history whew the origin of a whole
, nation is traced up to a single man, and
i where a connected trait' of events and a
1 regular series of persors from generation to
generation is preserved. As the history of
a family, it is.intimately connected with our
religious principles and opinions, for it is the
family from which (in his human character)
Jesus Christ descended. It begins by relat
fag the commands of God to Abraham,
abandon his country, his kidred, end his
father's house; and to go to a land which
He would show him. This command was
accompanied by two promises; from which,
and from their fulfilment arose the differ
ences whiell I have just noticed between the
history of the Jews and that of everyother
nation. The first of these promises Was,
' , That - God would make Abraham a great
natfon t and.bless him ;" the second, and in
comparably the most- important was, that
"in him all the families of the earth should
be blessed." This promise was made about
two thou Sand years before the birth of Christ,
and in Min had its fulfilment. When Abra
ham in obedience to the comforted of God,
had gone into the land of Canaan, the Lord
appeared . unto him and made loin a third
promise, which was that he should give that
land to a naticin . which should descend front
'him, as a possession t this was' fulfiled be
tween five and six hundred years after Ward.
In reading all the historical books of both
the Old'' arid New l'eStainiants, as well' as
the books of the Prophets, you should al-
Ways bear in mind the reference which they
have to these promises of God in Abraham.
