Vicar of Witley, Surrey.

It is a very melancholy view of human life,
but who can say that it is not a correct one
which the patriarch gives? "Man that is
born of a woman is of few days, and full of
trouble he cometh forth as a flower, and is
cut down: he fleeth also as a shadow, and
continueth not" (Job xiv. 1, 2). What
sad marks does our present condition bear of
that awful curse which doomed fallen man
to travail and sorrow! No: this is not a
world of happiness: there are too many dis
tresses belonging to it to allow of its being
so. But to make us happy is not God's first
object his first object is to bring us back to
himself, to make us religious: enough for us
if we can find in religion something of peace
and joy; some slight foretaste of those pure
joys which he has in store for his people
hereafter. But of happiness, independent of
religion, in this life, there is not much of
misery and sorrow, which even religion can-
not entirely relieve, there is much, very
much. This is well it is ordered by infinite
wisdom and goodness that so it should be.
We are dangerously attached to the world
as it is what would it be if the world was
made pleasanter to us, if we had fewer sorrows
to sober us, and disappointments to humble

JANUARY 1, 1842.

It is true the Lord in his mercy bestows upon us many blessings: life has its good things as well as its evil things: but how few of these good things are lasting? We most times know not their value till we have to mourn their loss: we very often spoil them,






and make ourselves unfit to enjoy them, by envy or discontent, by a troubled conscience, or a hard insensible heart. How little of innocent pleasure there is, and, even when we do enjoy it, we feel that it cannot satisfy us: how much there is of guilty pleasure which lasts but for a time, and is soon followed by vexation and remorse; thus adding to the gloom instead of removing it.

Thus the world around us is full of strange contrasts, noisy counterfeit mirth, and still silent real sorrow; silly triflers, and brokenhearted mourners: mirth and gaiety indeed put themselves most forward, and make most show, while sorrow and trouble are more retired and keep back and hide themselves; and thus the world seems to be more cheerful and more joyous than what it really is; but its true character will ever and anon break out. Search a little more narrowly, and you will soon discover t e hollowness of its joys, and the reality of its sorrows: you will detect many a troubled mind, and many an aching heart, under the veil of a composed countenance and a little outside gaiety. For one case of mirth uplifting its voice in the street, you will find many of grief sitting alone, and weeping in the inner chamber. What various scenes of sorrow, what constant cases of trouble, might I bring forward to prove the truth of what has been said; but I will now confine myself to one, the most common, the most affecting of all-one in which all my readers have, no doubt, already taken a part, and in which each of us will, sooner or later, be the principal characterthe scene, or rather the series of scenes, of a sick chamber, a dying bed, and a funeral. These are things which we may not pass by
