'1hipoKr,vj<, Feb. 4, 13!U.—-Tn the "JJrooJdyii Tabernacle this forenoon the liyiiius, the scripture lesson and the prayers, as AA-cll as the sermon, Avcre iibout the future Avorld more than about thisAvorld. KeA'. Dr. Tsthnagc took for his subject: "A Vision of Heaven," the text being: Esiekiel i : i : "jtfOAV it •cflme to pass, as 1 Was among the captives by the Klvev of Chebar that the faeavens Avere opened and 1 saw visions <o£God." Expatriated and in fnr exile on the 'banks of the llivcr Chebar, an affluent of the Euphrates, sat Ezckicl. It Avas there he had an i.nmortal dream, .a,nd it is given to us in the holy script- •xtrcs. He dreamed of Tyre and Egypt. He dreamed of Christ and the coming <hcaveu. This .exile seated by that irtver' Chebar had a more Avonderful •stream than you or I cA'cr have had, or «vcr Avill have, seated on the banks of the Hudson, or Alabama, or Oregon, or "Thames, or Tiber, or Danube. But we all have had memorable •ulreains, some of them Avhen AVC Avcre lialf asleep and half awake, so that AVC •«li<l not knoAV Avhcthca 1 they Averc born *»£ shadOAV or sunlight: Avhcthcr they •were thoughts let loose and disar- fanged as in slumber, or the imagina- ifcion of faculties invukc. Such tt dream I had this morning. It -«va,s about fi:i)0 aud the day AVIIS breaking. It Avas a dream of (Jotlj a dream of heaven. Kx.ekiel had his dream on tho batiks of the Chebar; I had my ' dream not far from the batiks of the Uludson. The most of the stories of Hieaven were Avrittcn many centuries iago, and they tell us IIOAV the place (looked theu, or IIOAV it Avill look oen- "turles ahead. Would you not like to J.cnoAv IIOAV it looks noAV? That is Avhat I am going- to tell you. I AA'as there •this morning'. I have just got buck. Hoiv I got into that city ot the sun I 3inow not. Which of the twelve gates ."1 entered is to ine uncertain. Hut my "first remembrance of the scene is that I stood on one of the main avenues, iiooking this Avsiy imd that, lost an raptures, and the air so ,ful «>f music nnd redolence, arid laugh fer and light, thut I knew not Avhicl • f&tecct to take. Avhcn an angel of t!o( saoeosted me and offered to show me ^.he'Objects of greatest interest, and ti •conduct-me from street to street, line ;-from mansion to mansion, and fron ticmplu to temple, and from. Avail to •wall. 1 said to the angel, "How long .'•bast ithou been in hetivcnV" iind the iimswer came, "Thirty-lAvo ycnrs uc- •<eoixling to the earthly calendar.' '.There Avas a, secret about this a-nsrel'.* •cnainc that was not given me, but from "the tenderness, and sweetness, and af- rfection, and interest taken in my Avalk rthrough heaven, and more than all in itlie fact of thirty-tAvo years,' residence the number of yeiirs since she ascended, I "think it Avas my mother. Did age, anil decrepitude, and the tired look v-Avere all gone, but I think it Avas she. 'You see, 1 AA-US only on u visit to the • city, and had not yet taken up resilience, and I could know only in part. 1 looked in for a fcAV moments at the -great tempi- \ Our brilliant and lovely .Scotch es 1st, Mr. Drummoiul, says there is n urch in heaven, but he <lid not left, r it on the right street. .'St. John¥ - right Avhen in his il'iitmosic vf^ /n, recorded in tho third •chapter of 'Kevelation, ho speaks of -"The Temple of My (ioil." I saw it "this morning'; the largest church I ever saw; as big as all the churches ami cathedrals of the eurth put together, .and it was thronged. Oh, Avhat a nnaltitude! I hud uoA'cr seen so many jpoople togethei 1 , All tho audiences of vsll the churches of till the earth put together Avould make a poor attendance compared Avith that assemblage. 'There was a fashion in attire and hoatl- >dress that immediately took my attention. The fashion Avas white. All in vwhite, *ave one. And the head-dress vivas a garland of rose, ami lily, and i mignonette, mingled Avith green leaves • culled from the royul gardens, and i bound together with bands of gold. And I saAV some young men Avitli a •ring on the finger of the right hand, aud said to my accompanying angel, "AVhyithose rings on the lingers of the <right hands' 1 " and 1 AVUS told that those • \vho Avore them AA-ere prodigal sons, -ami once fed swine in the wilderness, -and lived on husks, but they came .home, and the rejoicing 'Father said, ' *.tPut o> ring-on his hand." Hut Lsaid .there Avas one exception >$o this fashion of AA'hite pervading- till the auditorium and clear up through ;all the galleries. It AVUS the attire of • the one. who Resided in that immense • iemple. The chiefest, the mightiest, 'the loveliest person in all the place. IdUs cheeks seemed to lie flushed with 'infinite.beauty,.and his forehead Avasa i morning sky,, and .his lips Avere eloquence omnipotent. But his attire was of depp colors. They suggested tne «avnage through which he hud passed, and I, said . to nuy attending angel, *'What is that, criinsoa robe that he wears?" ..and I was told, "They are «jye4 garments-froui Hozrah," and "he "trod the Avine press alione." fcioon after I entered this tern pic they to chant the-celetitial litany. It uniike< any thing I hud ever heard sweetness .or power, and 1 have tlie; mos>t -of the great organs, tho most of-the-great oratorios, I to lay accompanying' a.rjgc'1. "Who {hat standing yonder \vith the j ml the aiiMver was, "4>avid!" ,4^ i suid, t'Who it: that Mounding that Christ himself, when all the worshipers, lower down nnd higher up, ft thousand galleries of them, suddenly dropped on their knees and chanted, ''Worthy is the Lamb that Avas slain." Under the overpoAvering harmony I fullback. I said, "Let us go. This is too much for. mortal ears, lean not bear the overwhelming symphony." But I noticed as I Avas about to turn aAvay that on the steps of the altar Avas something like the lachyrrnal, or tear- bottle, as I had seen it in the earthly museums, the lachrymals, or tear- bottles into Avhich the t Orientals used to Avecp their griefs and set them away as sacred. But this lachyrrnal or tcar- bottlc, instead of eartheuAvarc as those the Orientals Used, AVOS lustrous and fiery with many splendors, and it Avas towering 1 and of great capacity. And I said to my attending angel, "What is that great lachrymal, or tear-bottlei standing ou the step of the altar?" and the angel saiel, "Why, do you not knoAV? That is the bottle to which David the psalmist referred in his fifty- sixth Psalm, when he said, 'Put thou my tears into thy bottle.' It is full of tears from earth; tears of repentance; tears of bereavement; tears of joy; tears of many centuries." And then I saAV IIOAV sacred to the sympathetic God are earthly sorrows. As I AVUS coming out of the temple I saAV nil along the pictured Avails there Avere shelves, and golden vials were being set up on all those shelves. And I said: "Why the settiug-up of those vials at this time'.' They seem just UOAV to have boon lilleel," and the attending angel said: "The Avcek of prayer all around the earth has just closed, and more supplications have been inn etc than have been made for a long Avhile, and these new vials, ncAvly set up, arc what the Bible speaks of as 'golden vials full of odors, which are the prayers of saints.' " And I said to the accompanying tingcl, "Can it be possible that the prayers of the earth are Avorthy of being kept in such heavenly shape?" "Why," said the angel, "there is nothing that so moves heaven as the prayers of earth, and they are set up in sight of these- infinite multitudes, and, more than all, in the sight of Christ, and he cannot forget them, and they arc before him Avorld Avith- out cud." Then we came out. and as the temple is ohviiys open, and some Avorship at one hour and others at other hours, AA-C passed down the street amid the throngs coming- to and going from tho great temple. And AVC passed along through a street called Martyr Place, and wo met there, or SUAV sitting at the Avindows, the souls of those Avho on earth Avcnt through lire and flood, and under sAvord and rack. We saAV John Wickliffc, Avhose, ashes Avcre by decree of the Council of Constance thrown into the river; and Rogers, Avho bathed his hands in the lire as though it had been Avater; and Bishop Hooper, and Melvail, and Latimer, and Ridley, and Polyenrp, Avhom the llamcs refused to destroy as they bent outward till a spear did the work, aud some of tho Albigenses, and Huguenots, and consecrated Quakers Avlio Avcre slain for their religion. They had ou them many scars, but their scars were illumined and they had on tlieir faces u look of especial triumph. Then AVC passed along Song row, and AVC met some of the old gospel singers. "That is Isaac Watts," said my attendant. As AVC came up to him-he asked me if the churches on earth Avero still singing the hymns he composed at the house of Lord and Lady Abney, to whom ho paid a visit of thirty-six years, and I told him that many of the churches opened their Sabbath morning services Avith his old hymn, "Welcome, Sweet Day of Host," and celebrated their gospel triumphs with his liymn, "Salvation, O the Joyful Song," ind often roused their devotions by his lymn, "Come AVC that Love the Lord." While AVO were talking ho introduced i'. to another of the song writers, anil said, "This is Charles Wesley, who bo- onged ou eiirth to u different church 'rom mine, but AVC arc all now members of the same church, The Temple God and the Lamb." Anil 1 told !'hnrles Wesley that almost every Sabbath we. wing one of his old hymns, 'Arm of the Lord, Awake!" or, "Come, .et us Join our Friends Above;" or •Love Divine, All Love 1'Jxeelliii"-." ered over you, and kissed your cheek, and filled your dr^amo \.ltli their glad faces, and that they would be dt the gate to greet you when yon ascended to be with them forever. "But," say other voices, "did you see our glorified friends?" Yes, I saw them, and they are well in the land across which no pneumonias, 9r palsies, or dropsies, or typhoids ever sweep. The aroma blows Over from orchards with trees bearing twelve manner of fruits, and gardens, compared with which Chatsworth is a desert. The climate is a mingling of an earthly Juno and Oetob n-; the balm of the one and the tonic of the other. The social life in that realm where they are iff superb and perfect. No controversies, or jealousies, or hates; but love, universal love, everlasting love. And they told me to tell you not to weep for them, for their happiness knows no bounds, and it is only a question of time when you shall reign with them in the same palace, and join with them, in the same, exploration of planets, and the same tour of worlds. But yonder in this assembly is an upturned face that seems to ask how about the ages of those in heaven, "Do my departed'children remain children, or have they lost their childish vivacity? Do my departed parents remain aged, or have they lost the venerable out of their nature?" . Well, from what I saw I think childhood had advanced to full maturity of faculty, retaining all the resilience of childhood, and that the aged had retreated tub, and tlio dairy, rewarded accord- .ing to how. wcii they did their woric. whether to sofa tea-table or govern tv lation, whether eiflpress ' or' inillt- maid. I could not #et over it as in mj dream I saw till tliis< and that some o.' the most unknown of earth were the most famous in heaven, and thntmany who seemed '.the greatest failures ol earth were the greatest successes of heaven. And as we passed along one of the grandest boulevards of heaven, there approached us a group of persons so radiant in countenance nndnp- parel I had to shade my eyes with both hands because I could not endure the luster and I said: "Angel! do tell me who they are," and tho answer was: "These arc they who came out of great tribulation aud had their robes washed aiifl made white in the blood of the Lamb!" My walk through the city explained a thousand things on earth that had been to me inexplicable. When I saw up there the superior delight and the superior heaven of many who had on earth had it hard with cancers, and bankruptcies, and persecutions, and trials of all sorts, I said, "God has equalized it all at last; excess of enchantment in heaven has more than inside up for the deficits on earth." "But," I said to my angelic escort, "I must go now. It is Sabbath morning on earth and I must preach to-day and be in my pulpit by 10::iO o'clock. Good-by," I said to the attending angel. "Thanks for .what you have shown tne. 1 know I have seen only in part, but T hope to return again, of our HOW SHE WAS CORED. Tli* She to mid-life, freed from all decadence, but still retaining the charm of the | through the atoning mercy venerable. In other words, it was ; Lord Jesus Christ. Good-by.". fully developed and complete life of all souls, whether young or old. Some one saj'S, "Will you tell us what most impressed you in heaven?" I will. I was most impressed with the reversal of earthly conditions. I knew, of eoursc, that there woidd be differences of attire and residence in heaven, for Paul had declared long ago that souls would .then differ "as one star differcth'from another," us Mars from Mercury,, as Saturn from Jupiter. But at every step in my dream in heaven I was amazed to see that some who were expected to be high in heaven were low down, and some who were expected to be low down were high up. You thought, for instance, that those born I'eflection the first: The superiority of our heaven to all other heavens. The Scandinavian heaven: The departed arc in everlasting battle except as restored after being cut to pieces, they drink wine out of the skulls of their enemies, The Moslem heaven as described by the Koran: "There shall be Houris with large black eyes like pearls hidden in their shells." The Slav's heaven: After death the soul hovers six weeks about the body, and then climbs a steep mountain, on the top of which is paradise. The Tasmanian's heaven: A spear, is placed by the dead, that they may have something to fight with, and after awhile they go into a Fn**.v Otil \Vu* "tfotiitiitjfr it itnltit."

One day she deliberately addressed me: "Aren't, you afraid of forming a hnb- it?" she asked. • I supposed she alluded to my habit of late rlsng, and I replied civilly that my time Avas my own.

"What habitV" "The habit of using stimulants—tho liquor habit," she said In fin awful voice. Well, you could havo knocked mo doAvn with a feather, but. the more 1 thought, of it the moro natural seemed the mistake, as I romemborcd that, the basis of all perfumery is alcohol, and .T hnd often noticed the disagreeable odor of snlrits Avhteh remained when the perfume Avas exhausted. "What did you do'/" nsked her friend. "Oh, I tried to make the old lady understand, but she told me I couldn't de celve her, aud advised me to reform before it Avas toe late. She assured me that she had kno\vu many eases where intemperate sorvants had drank the cologne from the toilet bottles of tho mistress, but she Avas sorry to see young ladies' resorting to such practices.

And we met also on Sou# Kow, Js'ewton, and Hastings, aud Montgomery] and Horatio lionar, and wu heard floating- from window to window snatches of the old hymns Avhich they started on earth, and started never to die. • "Hut," say some of my heavers, "did you see anything" of our friends in heaven?" Oh yes, I did. "Did you see my children there?" says spine one, "and are there any marks of their last, ickncss still uppii them?"

The steps by AA'hieh many have mounted to the highest places in heaven Avere made out of the cradles of :i corrupt parentage. AVhcu I saw that, I said to my attending augel, "That is fair; that is right. The harder the struggle the more glorious the reward." Then I pointed to ouc of the most colonnaded and grandly-domed residences in all the city, and said, "Who lives there'. 1 '' and the answer Avas, "The. widow who gave two mites."
