Each theater has Its own playwright, who, however, owing to the fpndness of the audience for realistic;'scenes, has to divide the honors of the reproduction with the important person who creates the realistic accesorlea. How Important the functions of the latter, are, says the Electrical World, WlH\b£ evident from the following description, of a scene from a play entitled "Jonah'," produced at the Old' Bowery Theater. •'After Jonah has been thrown overboard,'for a moment," says the reporter, , "It appears that nothing can save hlm.^ But, just as he* is sinking for the last time, a great fish comes along, shaped something like a flounder, and deporting Itself like a ball of rubber; It opens a very wide mouth and Jonah climbs in. Instantly the ship, which has baen hammering the stage boards In its wild tossing, becomes still. The ballet sailors on the deck set, up a jubilant Chorus, and a gauze-dressed ang«l drops down from the flies, while the fish—which has disappeared behind the scenes—turns about and re-enters with a new side presented to the audience.

The city Of Corinth has been called the Paris of antiquity. Indeed, for splendor, the world holds no such woti" der to-day, tt stood on an Isthmus washed by two seas, the one sea bringing the commerce of Europe, the other the commerce of Asia. From hor wharves, in the construction of which whole kingdoms had been absorbed, war-galleys with three banks of 'oars pushed but and cohfbunded the navy yards of all the world. Huge-handed machinery, such as modern invention cannot equal, lifted ships from the sea on one side and transported them on trucks across the Isthmus and set them down in the sea on the other side. The revenue, officers of the city Went down 'through the olive groves that lihed the beach to collect a tariff from all nations. The mirth of all people sported in her Isthmian games, and the beauty of all lands' sat in her theaters, walked her pprtlcos, and threw itself on • the altar of ber stupendous dissipations. Column, and statue, and temple bewildered the beholder. There were white marble fountains intp which, from apertures at the side, there rushed waters everywhere known for health-giving qualities. Around these basins, twisted into wreaths of stone, there were all the beauties of sculpture and architecture; while standing, as if to guard the costly display, was a statue of Hercules of burnished Corinthian brass. Vases of terra-cotta adorned the , cemeteries . of the dead — vases so costly that Julius Caesar was not satisfied until he had captured them for Rome. Armed officials, the "Corinthiarii," paced up and down to see that no statue was defaced, no pedestal overthrown, no bas-relief touched. From the edge of the city a hill arose, with its magnificent burden of columns, and towers, and temples (one thousand slaves awaiting at one shrine), and a citadel so thoroughly impregnable 'that Gibraltar is a heap of sand compared with it. Amid all thai strength and magnificence, Corinth stood and defied the world. Oh! it was not to rustics who had never seen anything grand that St. Paul uttered this text. They had heard the best music that had come from the best instruments in all the world; they had heard songs floating from morning porticos and melting In evening groves; they 1 had passed their whole lives away among pictures, and sculpture, and a*r-' chitecture, and Corinthian bi;ass, which had been molded and shaped, until there Avas-no chariot wheel' in 1 ' which }t had not sped, and no tower in which it had not glittered, and no gateway that it had not adorned. Ah, it was a bold thing for Paul to stand there amid all that, and say, "All this is nothing. These sounds that come from, the temple of Neptune are not music compared with the harmony of which I speak. These waters rushing in the basin of Pyrene aye not pure, These statues of Bacchus and Mercury are not exquisite. Yon citadel pf Acrocorinthus is not strong cpmpared with that which I offer to the poorest slave that puts down his burden at that brazen gate, You, Corinthians, think this is a splendid city; you think you have heard all sweet sounds, and seen all beautiful sights; but I tell ypu 'eye .hath not seen, npr ear beard, neither Jiave entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him,' " You see my text sets forth the idea that, however exalted our ideas may be pf heaven, they qeme far shprt of the reality, Some wise men have been calculating bow many furlongs long and wide is heaven; a»d they Jiave calculated, how many inhabitants there are on tlje earth; how long the eajth will probably stand; and then they cpme to this estimate: that jifter »ii the , , swiiigihg in tad ail-i health fioWi&g 111 all the atfeaftie; faealtii blootiilrig oS tile bankSi , ' fCo headaches, ho sldeachei, ao baekaclr^.. • « * * <>' St- JbHtt bids US 166k agalb, aid WS' ' ' open gathered, tp h.eaven,'there will be 8 rpppj for each spul— a rppm sixteen feet long and fifteen feet wide., It wowW not ,be large enpugn for me, I am ste<J to, know that no ftuman estimate ip svUBpjent to tftke tbfdimenT "$ye hath not seen, nor ear ," npr arithme,tip jea^ul&ted, that we ,can i» this pf w^ep, you wert a, deemed passing')' Jesus, on ft white hof^e, leads the; march,, attd all" the armies df.e&tVaUd'tt fblidfying 6ft white hufses. ' Iriflrilte • -cavalcade passing, passing; empires pressing'into line, ages following .ages. Dispensation' tramping oti after dispensation, Glory in the track of glory. Europe, Asia, Africa, and North and South America pressing into lines, Islands of the sea shoulder to shouider. Generating before the flood following generations after the flood, and as Jesus rises at the head of that great host and waves his sword in signal of victory, all crowns are lifted, and all ensigns flung out, and all chimes rung, and all hallelujahs chanted, and some cry, "Glory to God most high," and some "Hosanna to the 'Son of David;" and some, "Worthy is the Lamb that was slain"—till all exclamations of endearment and homage in the vocabulary of heaven are exhausted, and there come up surge after surge of "Amen! Amen! Amen!" "Eye hath not seen it, ear hath not heard it." Skim from the summer waters the'brightest sparkles, and you will get no idea of the sheen of the everlasting sea. Pile up the splendors of earthly cities, and they would not make a stepping-stone by which you might mount to the city of God. Every house is a palace. . Every step a triumph. Every covering of the head a coronation. Every meal is a banquet, Every stroke from the tower is a wedding-bell. Every day is a Jubilee, every hour a rapture, and every moment an ecstacy, "Eye hath not seen it, ear hath not beard it." I remark, further, we can get no idea on earth of the re-unions of heaven. If you have ever been across the sea, and met.a-friend,.dr.even an acquaintance, in some, strange, city,, you remember how your blood thrilled, and how glad you were to see him. What then will be our Joy, after we have passed the seas of death, to meet in the bright city of the sun those from whom we have long been separated! After we have been away from our friends ten or fifteen years, and we come upon them, we see how differently they look. The hair has turned, and wrinkles have come in their faces, and we say, "How you have changed!" But oh, when you stand before the throne, all cares gone from the face, all marks of sorrow disappeared, and feeling the Joy of that blessed land, metkinks we will say to each other, with an exultation we cannot now imagine, "How you have changed!" In this world we only meet to part. It is good-by, good-by. Farewells floating in the air. We hear it at the rail-car window, and at the steamboat wharf—good-by. Children lisp it, and old age answers it. Sometimes we say it in a light way—"good-by;" and sometimes with anguish in which the soul breaks down, Good-by! Ah! that Is the word that ends the'thanksgiving' banquet; that is the word that comes in to close the Christmas chant. Goodby! good-by! But not so in heaven. Welcomes in the air, welcomes at the gates, welcomes at the house of many mansions—but, no goo4-by. That group is constantly being augmented. They are going up from our circles of earth to Join it—little voices to Join the anthem—little hands to take hold of it in the great home circle—little feet to dance in the eternal glee—little crowns to he^ cast down before the feet of Jesus. A little child's mother had died, and they comforted her. They said; "Your mother has gone to heaven—-don't cry," and the next day they went to the graveyard, and they laid the body of the mother down into ground; and the little girl came up to the verge of the grave, and, looking down at the b.ody O f her mother, said, "is this heaven?" Oh! we hare no idea what heaven is. It is the grave here—it is darkness here— hut there is merry-making yonder. Methinks when a soul arrives, some angel takes it around to show it the wpnders of that blessed place, The usher- angel says to the newJy - arrived; "These are the martyrs that perished at Piedmont; these were torn to pieces at the Inquisition; this is the throne of the great Jehovah; tfits is JesusJ" "I am going to see JB.US," said! a dying ne- gro boy, "I ani-going tP see Jesus;" and the missionary g^d, "You.' are pure you will gee jijipf »<Qh< ye.s; that's whftt I want t,0 go,, 10 heaven fpp," "But," said the wissloasry, " that Jesps should go, away from ""What thenf -fiaja ths fceU^fh^t ,, t remSfk agaltf, w6 eatijfi ,this Wd'flcl get fi8,ide& 6l iti« SBhf .df beaten; Ifou ' . muaiu.

We appreciate the poWer ot secular music; but do we appreciate the poWef of sacred song? There is nothing more inspiring to me than a whole congregation lifted Upon the wave of holy melody. - When We sing some of those dear old psalms and tunes they rouse all the memories of the past. Why, some of them were cradle-songs in our father's house. They are all sparkling with the morning dew of a thousand Christian Sabbaths. They were sung by brothers and sisters gone now—by voices that were aged and broken in the music—voices none the less sweet because they did tremble and break. When I hear these old songs sung, it seems as if all the old country meeting homes joined in the chorus, and Scotch kirk and Sailor's Bethel and Western cabins, until the whole continent lifts the doxology and the scepters of eternity beat time to tho music. Away then with your starveling tunes that chill the devotions of the sanctuary, and make the peoplo sit silent when Jesus is coming to hosanna. But, my friends, if music on earth is so-sweet, what will it be in heaven! They all know the tune there. Methinks the tune of heaven will be made up partly from the songs of earth; tho best parts of all our hymns and tunes going to add to the song of Moses and the Lamb., All the best singers of all the ages will Join it—choirs of white- robed children! choirs of patriarchs! choirs of Apostles! Morning stars clapping their cymbals. Harpers with their harps. Great anthems of God, roll on! roll on!—other empires Joining the harmony till the thrones are full of it, and the nations all saved. Anthem shall touch anthem, chorus Join chorus, and all the sweet sounds of earth' and heaven be poured into the ear of Christ. David of the harp will be there. Gabriel of the trumpet wi)\ be there. Germany, redeemed, will pour/its deep base voice into the song, and Africa will add to the -music with her matchless voices. ^ I wish we could anticipate that song; I wish in the closing hymns of the churches to-day we might catch an echo that slips from the gates. Who knows but that when the heavenly door opens to-day to let some soul through, there may come forth the strain.of the Jubilant voices until we catch it? Oh, that as the song drops down from heaven it might meet half way a song coming up from earth! Her Want Satisfied. Mr. Moody tells a wonderful incident illustrating the power of the Holy Ghost, He says: "When we were in Philadelphia, a lady said to me, 'Mr. Moody, can woman have the power of the Holy Spirit?' I told her I saw no reason why any one should not have it that wanted to work for God. Women need it as much as men. 'Well,' said she, 'if I can have it, I want it. I have a husband who is not a Christian; I have also a Sunday school class, and they are unconverted,' "A week from that time she came to me and said, 'I have got it. The Lord has blessed me, My husband has been converted, and five of my Sunday school class,' That was the result of that woman's receiving the power of the Holy Ghost, It spread all through the church of which she was a member, and the people, seeing that she' had something which they had not, began to inquire, and as a result five hundred members were added to the church," Nay, never falter; no great deed is done By fajterersi who ask for certainty, No good is certain but the steadiest The undivided will to seek the good; •Tie that compete the elements, snd wrings A human music from the indifferent air, The greatest gift a hero leaves his race Is to 'have peep, a hero, --George 4 yejigion with, force 'e»pugh it tg rput ycm qyt op Swqay m and. m^fee yp.w change yoiiV Qlptbes go tp, ehwch &»a. s}t jm<| ij^ew tQ the sermon |ft be 'fcfpt'WdJeR j,i^ days, Jn 'i& -• „'.- tft£$ t . -\, aih»fc*irtitt* ..^1$ i<ltis4*t«i*MM life fcfotty Mfr«**fiPhi itMttf < >' ' " jr 1 J3 ittt m «Ma»dfr6tof. **V»1L, • ;~M S*itsJ||f||te ,'Hittth M ^te la it fattttAft tfSrfS. 1™« J8 .
