People who scarcely erer went to chnrch at all, turned they werte all anxious to see and hear the new minister for the first time. ..The sermon was preached and the people were electrified. Never before had they heard such a discourse, of fire, pathos, and beauty. Never be> fore had they heard, the holy word ex- pounded 90 clearly, so forcibly! Never before had been so vividly painted to their fresli Awakened minds, His igno- mihous death for guilty, fallen man; glorious resurrection; His inces- sant mediatorial pleadings at His father's throne; And never before had that old house witnessed such another scene': Men and had grown old in sin and, transgression, whose hearts were hard, stubboi obdurate, wept and trembled as they heard these ti- dings. And when .the services were finally concluded, and the people had betaken themselves to their homes, naught could be hflard save of thp dear, pious Mr. Fairview. For'.the'time being their old, minister seemed entirely forgotten. i On that same evening a meeting of the members, as before intimated, Was 1 Vf I man, only Deceived forty dpHars, that -supported him nandsbmfrfy tne'; whole year round. No, no, no, Mr. child, we can will not engage' yon at that." And the old man sat down with a .very stern-visage. With a smile, such us those can understand who have experienced like circumstances, the young minister told the church that he was sorry, veiy .sorry, they differed so widely, Lutrbe could not think for a moment of deviat- ing from the.sum he had named, wMteh was, in fact, comparatively nothing, and which would not even support him with- out the most rigid economy on bis part. It is plain bow this would have eijded had not another, who had been attent- ively silent throughout the whole even- ing, opportunely interfered. It was Isaac JMorelock, the miller who in .point of this world's one of the poorest that .belonged tq that .little flyck. r he said, I have a proposition to make.
