Kev. l)r. Talnnigc tooic for his subject: "A Vision of Heaven," the text being: Ezekiel ) : i : "Now it ennie to pass us I was among the captives by the River of Ghclxir that the heavens were opened and 1 saw visions Expatriated and in far exile on the 'banks of the lliver Chebar, an affluent •of the Euphrates, sat K/.ckiel. It was there he had an i.timortul dream, .and it is given to us in the holy script- .tires. He dreamed of Tyre and Egypt. lie dreamed of Christ and the coming 'ticaven. This .exile seated by that iriver' Chebar hud a more wonderful -dream than you or 1 ever have had, or -ever will have, seated on the banks of the Hudson, or Alabama, ,or Oregon, or "Thames, or Tiber, or l)anube. But we all have had memorable •clreains, some of them when we were lialf asleep and half awake, so that we •«iH<i not know whether they were born •fit shadow or sunlight: whether they •tvcre thoughts let loose and dlsar- aranged as in slumber, or the imagination of faculties awake. •Such a dream 1 had this morning. It i tvas about 5:30 and the day was breaking. It was a drciitn of (!od; a dream of heuven. K/ekiel had his dream on the banks of the Chebar; I had my dream not far from the banks of the jlludson. The most of the stories of Uieuven were written many centuries :ago. und they tell us how the place ilook«d then, or how it will look ecn- "twries ahead. Would you not like to ».l«iow how it looks now? That is what I am going to tell yon. I was there • morning. I have just got buck. ff.ow f I got into that city ot the sun I -fcnmy not. Which of the twelve gates 1 entered is to me uncertain. Hut my •iirst remembrance of the .scene is that I. stood on one of the avenues, jlookiug this way and that, lott sSn raptures, and tlic air so ,full «>f mnsie and redolence, and laughter and light, that I knew not which *street to take, when an angel of Clod saoeasted me and offered to show me t&lie 'Objects of greatest interest, and to «conduct me from street to street, und •from mansion to mansion, and from xieniplc to temple, und from, wall to •avail. I said to the angel, "How long .''Tiast ithou been in heaven';"' and the ;:aiiswer .came, "Thirty-two years ac- •coi-ding to the earthly calendar." T.fh.erc was a secret about this angel's •m:ime thai was not given me, but from -fche tenderness, and sweetness, and a£- .-fection, and interest taken in my walk ! through heaven, and more than all in ithe fact of thirty-two year.-. 1 residence the number of yea rs since she ascended, J tiirnk it was my mother. Old age, and decrepitude, and the tired look vwcre all gone, but 1 think it was she. "You see, I was only on a visit to the • city, and had not yet taken up resilience, and I could know only in part. .1 looked in for a few moments at the -great temple. Our brilliant and lovely Scotch essayist, Mr. Drnmmond, says there is no church in heaven, but lie -did not look for it on the right street. .'St John was right when in his JPiitinosic vision, recorded in the third •chapter of Devolution, lie speaks of -"The Temple of My (iod." I saw it this morning 1 ; the largest church lever saw; as big as all the churches and cathedrals of the earth put together, and it was thronged. Oh, what a imultitude! I had never seen so many (people together. All the audiences of u8\ the churches of all the earth put together would make a poor attendance compared with that assemblage. 'There was a fashion in attire and head- fcdrcss that immediately took my attention. The fashion was white. All in vwhite, save one. And the head-dress •was .u garland of rose, and lily, and • mignonette, mingled with green leaves itiulled from the royal gardens, and ilionnd together with bands of gold. And I saw some young men with a -i-ing on the finger of the right hand, nud said to my accompanying angel, ".Why)those rings on the lingers of the (right hands' 1 " aud 1 was told that those t\vho wore them were prodigal sons, -and once fed «wine in the wilderness, -and lived on husks, but they came .home, and the rejoicing Father said, • "Put a> ring on his hand." lint r said there was one exception i to this fashion of white pervading- all tlie auditorium .and clear up through jajH the galleries. It was the attire of • the one. who jk-eskled in that immense • temple, The chief est, the mightiest, <tbe loveliest person in all the place. His cheeks seemed to be flushed with <,.and his forehead was a , morning bky,.uud .his lips were elo- • <juence omnipotent. Hut his attire was • of deep, colors. They suggested tue through which, he had passed, I, said -to imy attending angel, that'CruiibOja robe that he "pfTtVptfll Christ himself, when all the worship u XJl ers, lower dotvn and higher tip, thousand galleries of them, suddenly dropped on their knees and chanted "Worthy is the Lamb that was slain,' Under the overpowering harmony fell back. I said, "Let us go. This ii too much for mortal ears. I can no bear the overwhelming 1 symphony." thit I noticed as I Was about to turn away that on the steps of the altar was something like the lachyrmal, or tear bottle, as I had seen it in the earthly museums, the lachrymals, or tear bottles into which the _ Orientals uscc to weep their griefs and set them away as sacred. But this laehyrmal or tear bottle, instead of earthenware as those the Orientals used, was lustrous ant fiery with many splendors, and it was towering and of great capacity. And .1 said to my attending angel, "What is that great lachrymal, or tear-bottle; standing on the step of the altar?" and the angel said, "Why, do yon nol know? 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 ol tears from earth; tears of repentance; tears of bereavement; tears of joy;tears of many centuries." And then I saw how sacred to the sympathetic God are earthly sorrows. As I was coining out of the temple I saw all along the pictured walls there were shelves, and golden vials were being set up on all those shelves. And I said: "Why the setting-up of those vials at this time? They seem just now to have been filled," and the attending :ingel said: "The week of prayer all tronnd the earth has just closed, and more supplications have been made ihan have been made for a long while, md these new vials, newly set up, are what the liible speaks of as 'golden vials full of odors, which arc the jraycrs of saints.' " And I said to the iceompanying angel, "Can it be possible that the prayers of the earth are vorthy of being kept in such heavenly ihapeV" "Why," said tho angel, 'there is nothing that so moves heaven is the prayers of earth, and they are ,et up in sight of these- infinite rnulti- ndes. :md, more than all, in the sight if Christ, nnd he cannot forget them, ud they arc before him world with- mt end. Then we en me out, an das the temple s ulwnys open, and some worship at ne hour and others at other hours, we iassed down the street amid the hrongs coming to and going from the temple. And wo passed along through a street called Martyr Place, and wo met there, or saw sitting at the windows, the souls of those who on earth went through lire and flood, and under sword and rack. We saw John Wickliffe, whose ashes were by. decree of the Council of Constance thrown into the river: and Rogers, who bathed Ills hands in the tire as though it had been water; and Itishop Hooper, and Me Kail, and Latimer, and lliclley, and Polycarp, whom the tlinncs refused to destroy as they bent outward till a spear did the work, and some of the Albigenses, and Huguenots, and consecrated Quakers who were slain for their religion. They hud on them many scars, but their scars were illumined and they had on their faces u, look of especial triumph. Then we passed along Song row, und we met some of the old gospel singers. "That is Isaac Watts," said my attendant. As we came np to him ho asked me if the churches on earth were still singing the hymns he composed at the house of Lord and Ivaily Abney, to whom lie paid a visit o'i' thirty-six years, and I told him that many of the churches opened their Sabbath morning services with his old hymn, "Welcome, Sweet Day of liest," and celebrated their gospel triumphs with his hymn, "Salvation, 0 the Joyful Song," and often roused their devolioiisby his hymn, ''Come we that Love the Lord." , While wo were talking he introduced me to another of the song writers, and said, "This is Charles Wesley, who be- ered over you, and kissed your cheek, and filled your dr jams \. ith their glad faces, and that they would be at the gate to greet you when you ascended to be with them forever. "Hut," say other voices, "did yon see our glorified friends?" Yes, I saW them, and they are well in the land across which no pneumonias, or. palsies, or dropsies, or typhoids ever sweep. The aroma blows over from orchards with trees bearing twelve manner of fruits, and gardens, compared with whiuh Chatsworth is a desert. The climate is a mingling of an earthly June and Octob ;r; the balm of the one and the tonic of the other. The social life in that realm where they are is 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 n.ature?" . Well, from what I saw I think childhood had advanced to full maturity of faculty, j retaining all the resilience of child- j hood, and that the aged had retreated to mid-life, freed from all decadence, j but still retaining the charm of the i venerable. In other words, it was ; fully developed and complete life of iill souls, whether young or old. Some one says, "Will you tell us what most impressed you in heaven?" [ will. I was most impressed with the tub, and the dairy, rewarded according to liow.Wcftl they did their work, whether to set a tea-table or govern ;> \ation, whether empress or milkmaid. I could not get over it as in mj dream I saw all this* and that some of- the most unknown of earth were the most famous in heaven, and that many who seemed'the greatest failures oi 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 and apparel 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 the answer was: "These are they who came out of great tribulation and had their robes washed a«d 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, "Clod has equalized it all at last; excess of enchantment in heaven has more than made 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::jO o'clock. Good-by," I said to the attending angel. "Thanks for .what you have shown me. I know I have seen only in part, but I hope to return again, through the atoning mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ. Good-by."

I knew, I pieces, they drink wine out of course, that there would be differences of attire and i-esidence in heaven, for Paul had declared long ago that lonls would then differ "as one star liffcreth'from another," as Mars from ' "Mercury,, as Saturn from Jupiter. But ' it every step in my dream in heaven I j vas amu'xcd to see that some who were expected to be high in heaven were ow down, arid some who were expected o be low down were high up.
