SERMONS ADDRESSED TO PARENTS, 1aSTERS, masters] SERVANTS, Youne [Young] Men. By Josian [Josiah] Bateman, M.A., Vicar o Huddersfield and Rural Dean, Huddersfield Waters Hariy; [Harry] London Whittaker Co., and Hamilton, Adams, Co. We have before us four sermons, delivered by the respected Vicar of Huddersfield, and which have been just issued by Mr. Hardy, of thistown. [this town] The discourses were addressed, on several occasions, as the title indicates, to parents, mas- [masters] ters, [tees] servants, and young men, and are published with the praiseworthy object of pointing out the meral [meal] and Chris- [Christian] lan [an] obligations enjoined on each in their respective avoca- [ava- avocations] tons the duty of parents to their children,-what is for- [forbidden] vidden, [ridden] and what enjoined upon tiiem. [time] He then refers, in some forcible passages, to the influence of precept and ex- [example] ample upon the minds of children; and next proceeds to polnt [point] out the reciprocal daties [Davies] of masters and servants. With respect to the latter, he remarks - The light heart and cheerful countenance of many a Servant, as contrasted with the heavy heart and care-wern- [care-were- countenance] countenance of many a master, makes it quite unnecessary for ime [me] tu vindicate the ways of God in appointing divers ranks and orders of men amongst us. Of course any one Tiny spend his life in fretting and complaining, because he cannot attain to the reputation or the riches of those above hitn, [hint] but he dues it to hig [hi] own hurt; and one happy fellow- [fellow servant] Servant, bearing cheerfully the same burden under which he groans, puts him to shame. The truth is, that God in his righteous government of the world has a variety of compensations as well as drawbacks in store, which he-uses with perfect truth and equity. You will accordingly often see the wealthy man laden with anxieties, from which the o0r or] tan is entirely free. Luxury shall engender pain and suffering, whilst hardness is promoting health and buoy- [buoyancy] ancy. [any] The cheerful family shai [Shaw bring trouble in the flesh, and the childless household shall have quietuess [quietness] and peace. The man at the tep [te] of the ladder shall totter and tremble, whilst the man at the bottora [bottom] stands firm and fearless. The waster shall carry about with him a heavy sensc [sense] of respon- [reason- responsibility] sibility [ability] the servant shall to his appointed work without an anxious thought. Let no one.complain then of hie lot, but rather address himself dilizently, [diligently] and with fuli [full] purpose. of heart, to the several duties which May appertain to it; and doing sc, he shall have as much of this world's good as God sees tit and proper for him. Tie course concludes by-a sermon addressed to young men, which is pregnant with sound instruction, and con- [con] tains [trains] lessons of christian dut [Du which it would become-all to well weigh and consider. We conceive the publication of these sermons made in-a timely season, and wouid [would] strongly recommend them to those persens [persons] for whom they are more particularly designed by our-respected vicar. .

Now, nothing tends mure [more] to dispose us to indulgence, to close our hearts against hatred, and to open them toa [to] humane and soft morality, than a profound knowledge of the human heart. Accordingly, the wisest men have always been the most indulgent.- [indulgent] Bulwer.

SUPERSTITIONS REGARDING FRIDAY.-It is strange enough, that Friday is regarded, in al countries as a peculiar day. In England it is generally considered unlucky; and many people will not commence any undertaking on that day; and most sailors believe that the vessel is sure to be wrecked that sails on a Friday. If a marriage take place on that day, the old wives shake their heads, ard [ad] predict all kinds of misfortunes to the bride and bridegroom. Nay, they even pity all children who are so unlucky as to be born on a Friday. In Gerinany, [Germany] on the contrary, Friday is con- [considered] sidered [resided] a lucky day for weddings, commencing new under- [undertakings] takings, or other memorable events; and the reason of this superstition is said to be the ancient belief that the witches and sorcerers held their weekly meeting on this day and, of course, while they were amusing themselves, with dancing, and riding on broomsticks round the Blocksberg, [Blocks berg] they could have no time to work any evil.- [evil] Mrs. Luudun's [Laden's] Ladies Companion, EpccaTIon [Education] OF THE CiTIZEN.-If, [Citizen.-If] as must always he the case, the seeming and propounding of measures lie with a few, their admission or rejection is in the power of the many-the wisdem [wisdom] of parliament is the wisdom of the sovereign people. For ifa [if] man be not a ten-pounder, a justice of the peace, a city magistrate, a member of corpo- [corps- corporations] rations.or [or] trusts, an owner of land, mills, ships, or of cash in general, a member of parliament, or a cabinet minister, he is at least an individual of the mob, whose political in- [influence] fluence [influence] is perhaps older tran [train] any of these, and, whether we like it.or nut, never becomes extinct. It is therefore a matter of some consequence that the notions of a citizen education, and of citizen colleges, should begin to. be entertained.

MoraL [Moral] Duties anp [an] RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE MEDICAL PRACTITIONER.-The practitioner of medicine in every rural district is a member of each social circle into which the service of his profession calls'him.

Nor are his functions r limited his direct professional duties. He-becomes a familiar, ar-adviser, anda [and] friend. His ear is the deposit of private histories and family secrets; he has extensive richts [rights] and peculiar rivileges. [privileges] Add to these the fact, that the path to medi [med] knowledge is steep and dangerous, and that its requirements are often of.a nature repugnant to delicacy of feeling-that it involves Intercourse. with objects, m [in] which the senses may Well revolt, with disgust.and loathing.

While seated with a friend on a stile at North- [Northbrook] brook, a large rat came bustling down the hedge before us, . bringing with him a lot of loose earth; my friend was just on the-point of jumping, down for a stone to whirl at him, when a; little weasel followéd [followed] the rat down the bank, hold- [holding] ing [in] his head well up, like a fox-hound running breast high. The rat had crossed the path, and got into a little low- [low bank] bank on the other side, over which he scrambled, and came out among some swede twuips [tips] in the adjoining field, at the very moment, the into-the-low bank hunt- [hunting] fing [ding] for him. The tuoi [to] Were so. sinall, [Aspinall] and so far apart, tof [of] the rat. He ran in and out 'that we did nof [of] loss si among them, continually crossing his own track; and then making a little circle, he- [came] came to. the bank, a good way from where we sat, and-ciimbing [and-climbing] over it, got into the fuot- [foot- footpath] path about a hundred' yards from us; he then ran. towards .us with all his might, straight along the middle of the path, and under the stile on which we sat motionless and smiling, like the statues of Tam O'Shanter [O'Shatter] and Souter Johnny, ten. yards behind us he went into the thick bank, and. was lost to view The weasel hunted him' well in the little low bank, and.seemed a good deal puzzled, staying there much longer than the-rat.. At last he seemed to find out that the game had taken to the turnips; here he hunted with great eagerness, and finding the trick that had been played, he made a casi [case] like a well-trained fox- [foxhound] hound, going completely outside all the trail; by this device he hit off the scent.. In.a few moments he was in the foot- [footpath] path, gallopping [galloping] towards us in fine style, his back arched, is head up, his. tail in a straight line- [line behind] behind him. He ; passed under us, and. in his eagerness, overshot the spot where the rat went into the bank; it was but for a moment. He came back, quartered the ground, found the trail, and was at the bank in no time. A black thorn overhung the path; something moved in it; the rat dropped -the weasel dropped too; we heard a long squeal-then a shorter squeal-and then. all was stil, [still] We went to the spot; the weasel left his prey sitting like a cat;. the rat's brain was. laid bare, but his heart beat for nearly'a-minute. as I heid [head] him in my hand.-Rusticus, [hand.-Rustic] in Chainbers' [Chambers] Journal. THE NECESSITY OF A BrTrer. [Beret] Cuass. [Class] oF Sowcs. [Sows] FOR FatHers.- [Father.- Father] We would not despise the little lyrics introduced into our Infant. Schools; but we would have songs for fathers as well as for children, Let the children have songs for the spring, and for the summer, for the autumn and for the winter; for morning and for the evening, and for evening, for schovul [school] and' for holiday; songs in which the whole spirit shall be healthful and life-breathing. And when the children are grown up, and. are dev [de to the serious vocations of life, must no poetry hallow the scenes of their daily toils and cares Must they either scorn or painfully regret.all the warm hopes and bright visions of their early days .So it. ia tou [to] often; but. must it always beso [best Cannat [Cannot] poetry mediate between the hopes of the child and the of the man Cannot some.beam cf the early splendour follow the pilgrim to the tomb Perhaps the calling of the working-inan [working-Inn] is. not poetical. Nay; but we say thet [the] every honest calling has its poetical side and aspect. It is inthe [another] narrewness [narrowness] and exclusiveness of any ealling, [calling] when viewed in itself merely, that its dry prose and. repulsiveness are found; but in its glow and life, in its interjunction [inter junction] with other departments of life, in its communion with the interests of universal humanity, con- [consists] sists [lists] its truth and its try. And is it impossible that the lowest handicraft should be elevated in this view In the low labour of the mind a foundation is laid for super- [superstructures] structures of beauty and elegance in other departments of society. The philosopher could not enjoy his studious leasure. [pleasure] if the peasant did not toil. The strokes. of the pickaxe in the quarry are as necessary to, and titerefore [therefore] as truly hallowed by, the idea of the commonweal,as the fine touches of the artist's pencil. Then why should not every honest vocation have its poetical side Even the miner might have his songs. Whoever has travellod-as [travelled-as] far north as the Tyne. and rambled the windings of the' Wear, must have felt himself far-away from the- [glands] lands of beauty and melody. We. will not deny that.the Tyne, with the castle near its movth, [mouth] has. majesty; and that the many-curved Wear has beauty where it laves the woods and rocks about Finchall [Finally] Abbey; but when we-look upon the scenery as the souls and lives of the people, we cannot help thinking that William Howitt hag.given us descriptions rather tod [to] much in fayeur [faye] of the; poetical. The pitmen, [Pitman] even in the days-when. well-paid and well-fed, seem to feel no joy sufficient. to burst in song. from. their lips.

We have heard pious meditations, religious reasonings [reasoning] on doubtful points, and expositions of doctrinal Scripture, sung loudly by congregations of well-meaning people, with instrumental accompaniments Ofcourse [Of course] they thought that these compositions, being in' regular 'verse, and making good metre, common, or long, must be hymns, and therefore unust [inst] be suitable. for singing. But if they had reflected a little more, they would certainly have found that the subject and tenor of such compositions.are opposed to singing; that if a man were really and sincerely occupied with such matters as the supposed hymn implies, he would not be disposed to sing at all, but. . to be silent and think. Music is not the utterance of deep meditation and hard reasoning, but of simple and clear sentiments of faith, love, hope, and adoration.
