Wo graduated at the same time ah the town academy, where we got a little tincture of Latin. It is said that 'a little learning Is a -dangerous'thing.' Certainly It was in •our case. After we left school we 3jc«t up our studies together. One. evening we got into a discussion about a certain line of .Virgil. Wo could not asrce about the translation and were tmwiso enough to nvgtie the matte)' toa long and loo warmly.' Neither would admit of being in the wrong. The. result was that unkind words were *polccn and our engagement was broken off.

Dr. Tnliaage took for tho subject- ot his forenoon sermon a passage of scripture which lias been made the subject of mttch disctts&ion and various interpretation bv modern theologians. His theme was, "A. Cheerful Church," and the test was selected from Solomon's song 4:1: "Behold Thou Art tfatr, My Love." t "Higher criticism" says that thtfe jook of Solomon's Song is a love scene, i forlorn maiden sighing for her beau. :f so, it is an unclean and debauched utterance inserted in the pure word of God and is not fit'for common read- ng. My opinion is that it is an inspired ode sotting forth the feeling of Chrisb toward the church and of the church toward Christ Christ is the bridegroom, and the church is the bride. The same words we can utter to-day truthfully whether in regard to the church of God in general or this church in particular: "Dehold, thou art fair, my love." The past week has been one of prolonged congratulation for that we have for twenty-five' years been permitted' to associate with each other in tho relation of pastor and people. When I came to Brooklyn I found a amall band of Christian disciples who from various causes had become less and less, until they stood upon the very verge of extinction as a church; and the question was .being 1 agitated from time to time whether it would bo pos- ible to maintain a church life longer. Indeed, had not those men and women bee a consecrated and earnest, they would have surrendered to the adverse circumstances.. They: mar- shalled a congregational meeting, and, gathering up all the forces ' possible, they cast nineteen votes for a pastor, all of which I am happy to have received. It was not through any spirit of personal courage or reckless adventure that led me, from one of .the warmest and most congenial pastorates in Philadelphia that a man ever enjoyed, to this then most,uninviting field; but it was the feeling tl;at God had called me to the work and I was sure he would see me through. I have thought that it might be profitable to ua to state briefly what kind of a church wo have been trying to establish. In the first place, I remark that we have been trying to build here a Christian church—distinctively siich; in other words, a church whore we should preach the Lord Jesus .Christ and him crucified. My theology is all ffone into flvo letters—Jesus. Jesus, the pardon of all offenses. Jesus,, the foundation for all structures. Jesus, the balm for all'wounds. Jesus, the eye-salve for all'bHnrtness. Jesus, the guide through all perplexities. Jesus, the hope for all discouragements. Jesus, the reform for all wrongs. I have faith to believe that there is more power in one dro]T of the blood of Jesus Christ to cure tho woes of the world than in au ocean full of human quackery. Jesus is the grandest note in any minstrelsy. He is tho brightest gem in any crown, lloipht overstepping all height. Tlie center of every circumference. The circumference to every center. The pacifier of all turbulence. The umpire of all disputes. Jesus! Jesus! At his table all nations are to sit Around his throne till worlds are to revolve. He is to be tho irradiation of tho universe. Jesus! Jesus! It is that truth that we have tried to preach la this tabernacle. Do you auk more minutely what we believe? I can tell you. We have no dry, withered, juiceless theology. We believe in God, tho Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, the deliverer of tho distressed, the home for the homeless, the friend for tho friendless. We believe in Jesus Christ, able to save to the uttermost, pardoning the guilty, imputing his righteousness to tho believer. Wo believe in the Holy Ghost, the comforter, the Sanctifier, cheering up tho heart in life's Ills, and kindling bright lights in every dark landing place. We believe that the whole race is so sunken in sin that nothing but tho omnipotent arm of God can ever lift it out We believe in grace—free grace, sovereign grace, triumptiantgrace, eternal grace. Wo believe in a Bible—authentic in its statements.immacnlate in its teachings, glorious in its promises,' We believe in hea,vep, the abode of the righteous; and in hell, the residence of those •who are soul-suicides—of their own free choice refusing the divine mercy. We believe in the salvation of all men .who accept Christ by faith, be they sprinkled or immersed, worship they in cathedra) or * n l ° s c ^tai bel . ievo they ^n PreBbyterianism or Wpisco- pacy, dwell they under Italian skies or in Siberian snow-s>terms, be they Ethiopian or American. AH one in Christ One I^ord, one faith, one baptism, on the way to one heaven, We built this tabernacle for the purpose of setting forth, these great theories of the Gospel of the Son of God, 'Would that we had been more faithful in tho pulpit! Would that wo had been more faithful in the pew! I remark, further,that wo nave tried here to bmli a. church distinctively unconventional.

The prominent architects of the coufltry said, "It cfth not be done. You need a churohly btiilditiff." And so we had plan after plan of churchly buildings presented; but in due time God sent a man who grasped our idea and executed it. So far from being a failure, it satisfied our want, and all our three churches wete built oti the amptiitheatrical plan, arid scores of churches all over tho country have adopted the same plan. And, my brethren and sisters, we fail in our work just in proportion as wo try to be like other churches. We believe that' God intended every church, like every man, to be Individual, gathering up all its peculiarities aud idiosyneracies, and hurling them all toward Some good and grand object. Jn other words, no two churches ought ever to be just alike. Here is a church, for instance, whoso objectitis to prepare i philosophers and artists and critics for heaven. God speed them in the difficult work! Here is a church, on tho other hand, that proposes .to bring only the poor into tho -kingdom of Josus Christ, looking not after tho rich. God speed such.a church in its undertaking! But there is a larger idea that a church may take—bringing in the rich and the poor, the wise and the ig-nonint, the high and the low; so that kneeling beside each other shall be the man faring- sumptuously every day, and the man whd coultl not get his breakfast God speech.such a church! Oh! my friends, we need to break away from slavery to ecclesiastical custom. Wo dnro not sing if anybody hears us, We dare not preach unless we have rounded oft' our sentences to suit the criticism of the world. We dare not dress for church until we have examined the fashion plates, and . would rather stay at home than appear with a coal or a hat not sanctioned by'custpm When will tho day of deliverance come to the church of God, when, instead of a dead religion, laid out in a cata falque of insincerity, we shall have a living, bounding, sympathetic, glow ing Christianity? I remark, further, that we have tried here to build and to conduct cheerful church. While, asyoukuow, we have not held back the terrors of tho law, and tho sterner doctrines of the gospel, we have tried in this house to present to this people the idea that tho g-ladclest, brightest, happiest thing in all the universe is the Christian religion. There is-so much trouble in the world; business men have so many anxieties; toiling men have so many fatigues; orphans have to many desolations —for God's sake, i£ there be any bright place on earth, show it to them. -Let tho Church of Jeans Christ bo tho most cheerful spot.on eavth. Lot me say that I do not want anybody to come whining- around me about the Christian religion. I', have no faith in a religion made up of equal parts of wormwood, vinegar, aud red pepper. If the religion that is presented to us be a depression, \ve will get along better without it. If it be a Joy, lot it shine out from your face, and from j'our conversation. If a man comes to my house to talk of religion with lugubrious countenance, and manner full of sniitic and dolorousness, I feel liko saying to my wife, "You had better lock up the silver before he steals something." I have found it an invariable rule that men who profess faith, in the Lord Jesus Christ, priding themselves at the same time on their sanctimoniousness, always turn out badly. I never knew an exception. While those who aro the most consistent, the most useful, and the most consecrated, have perfume iu their conversation, and heaven iu tlieir face. ' The happiest Christians that I have ever known have been persons from (50 to 80 years of age, liy that' time people got over tho shams and pretenses of society, and have no longer any patience with anything like imposture in religion. O Christian! how dare you be gloomy? Is not God your Father? Is not Jesus-Christ your Savior? Has not your path all through life, been strewn with mereies? Aro you insensible to the fact that there are glories awaiting you in the better land'?-—4o-xologies of celestial worship, eternal chorals, tearless eyes, songs that resound under .arches of strength, and hosannas that clap their hands at the foot of the throne? Is it nothing to you that all the hills of heaven are radiant with the faces of those who, h»vo gone up from you,, and who ar& waiting for your coming, ready to keep, you eternal holiday? Is there' nothing in songs that nevar cease, in hearts that never ache, in splendors that never die> to make you glad? Th.en take no more mercy at the hand of thy God! Give back the roarriage- riug of love that Josus pat on your finger in the day of your espousal! Plant no more of the ilo were of hea,ven where there ought to be nothing but nettles and nightshade! Wo try to make this> church » cheerful church. A man on Saturday afternoon, stands to his store *nd s>ays, l> Uow shall I meet these obligations?

What is the consequence? That mslhesa man is* strengthened, He goes to the »toro nesit day feeling that God is with him and ready to deliver. That same Sunday there is a poor old woman in the church hearing the Jospel. Oh! how shrunken sho ist Sho wears'the Btituo dross she Wore twenty years ago. How faded it is, nnd how out of date! She sits and istens as well as she can. lief eyes are so dim sho can not see half-way across the church. Her ear is so Inv perfect that she can only catch coo- iasionally a note of the psalm or a word of the preacher. Some one sit" ting next to her gives her a book and finds the place for her. She says, "Thank you, miss, thank your She holds thebpok.closbttpto her eyes, and with a voice all full of tremors, sings: Jesus, lover of my soul. Let toe to thy bosom fly, While ttie billows near mo roll, While the tempest still is high; I-Iide mo, O, my Savior hide, Till tho storin of life is past. Safe into the haven guide— Oh! receive iny soul at last. And Jesus says to her, "Mother, are weary?" And sho says, "Yes, Jesus, I am very tired." Jesus says, "Mother, are you poor?" And she says, "Yes, I am very poor. I can not sew any more; I can not knit any more. I am very poor." Jesus says to her, "Mother, would you like to rest?" She saya, "Yes, Lord, that is what I want — rest." "Courage, mother," says Jesus, "I will see thee through." She goes home. The next morning, in the tenement house, some one dwelling on another floor comes to her room and knocks. No answer. The door is opened. She is dead! The night before, the chariots of God halted at hat pillow of straw, and Jesus kept his promise. He said that he would give her rest, and ho has given her rest. Glory be to God for the height, the depth, the length, and the breadth of such Christian comfort! Oh! that we might have such joy as that which •' inspired the men at the battle of Leuthen. They were singing a Christian song as they went into battle. A general said to the king, "Shall I stop those people singing?" "No," said the king; "men that can sing like that can fight." I would that we had a singing church, a joyful church, » jubilant chiirch, a comforting church; for then wo would have a triumphant church. .1 remark, further, that we. have here tried to build a church ubreast of the times. It is all folly for us to try to do things the way they did fifty or a hundred years ago. We might as well be plowing with Elijah's crooked stick, or go- into battle with Stall's armor, or prefer a canal boat to an express train, as- to be clinging to old things. 'What we most need now is a wide-awake church. I'eop'le who aro out in the world all the week, jostling against this lightning-footed century,, eome- into the church on the Sabbath, and go right to sleep unless they, have a. spirited service. Men engaged in literary callings all the week, reading pungent, sharp writings, can not be- expected to come aud hear our ecclesiastical humdrum. If a uaan> stays at home on Sundays a/ad, reads the newspapers, it is because- the newspapers are more interesting; We need, my brethren, to rouse up and stop hunting with blank cartridges. The Church of God ought to- be the leader, the interpreter;, the iu- spirer of tho age. It is all folly for us to be discussing old issues—arraigning Nero, hanging Absalom, striking the Philistines with Shamgar's ox-goad—when all around about us are iniquities to be slain. Did I say that tho church ought to> be abreast of the times? I take that liack. The Church of God ought to. be ahead of the times—as far in. advance as the Cross of Christ is ahead ot all human invention. Paul was.- a thousand years ahead of the day. in which he lived. The swift-footed years that have passed since Luthatr "died have not yet come up to Lutheu's grave. Give iniquity four thousand years the start, and the feet of Chris< tianity are so nimble that if you —"' hmwt Care in Hoo bean troutadvlth nM«*l '*.
