We want a religion that soft-

to melody, aud fills the eye with
sunshine, and checks the im-

rebuke, a religion that is polite
—deferential to superiors, cour-
teous to inferiors and consid-
erate to friends; a religion that
goes into the family, and keeps
the wife from fretting when the
husband tracks the newly wash-
ed floor with his muddy boots,
and makes the husband mindful
of the scraper and-door mat;
keeps the mother patient when
the baby is cross, and amuses
the children ae well as instructs
them; cares for the servants,
besides paying them promptly ;
projects the honeymoon into the
harvest noou, and makes the
happy home like the Eastern
fig-tree bearing in its bosom at
once the beauty of the tender
blossom and the glory of the
ripened fruit. We want a re-
ligion that shall interpose be-
tween the ruts and the gullies
and the rocks of the highway of
life aud the sensitive souls that
are traveling over them. We
particularly want a religion that
will not permit us to slander our
neighbors; but persons who are
slandered may always rest as-
sured that they are envied also.

a sober, industrious and intelligent class, and
alive to«the importance of morals, general

of the laws, which are rigidly executed.
Three and a.half years ago, in the whole re-
