Mr. Editor :—The remarks of a dty clergyman at the HarboVs Mouth, concerning taking the pledge of totd abstinence, were these : “If you do not become Christians now, and embrace Christ, you had better never have signed the pledge. It will stand against you at the J u d ^ e n t” When asked to expldn at the close of the meeting, he would not admit that he had made a blunder, but sdd ‘^ e act of dgning the pledge showed that a man was capd>le of doing b e tte r,” and he “ conld not see that temperancc had anything to do with some present becmning Christians, as he himself was temperate because he was a Christian. Before becoming a Christian he dgned the pledge three times and broke it every time.” I will say that the Beverend gentieman made few converts, and if a man wanto to be unpopular in these parts let him come here and denounce temperance in any form. If I write out a check on the bank for $25 to relieve some poor m&n^ distress, had I better not have done so, because I did not make it $100! I believe dgning the pledge and keeping it to be a good act, and the fore-runner of many more good acts; and according to our actions we shall be judged. I would refw the Bev«endgentieman and others of his cast, to the blessing of God upon the Bechabites, because of the Sons of JondMd obeying the command of their fii-ther “not to drink wine.” also to 1st Samuel, 2nd and 3rd verses. I respect ministers, but love temperance, believing that it win m<tke a good moral man, and that one cannot be a Christian without bdng tem p late. Thos. McClitbib. O ld. Ltmb.—A correspondent of the Hartford ConrarU writes that the cause of temperance in this quiet town is deddedly “looking up.” A committee haa been appointed of the friends of the cause to Infonn those now engaged in the infiimous traffic of liquor selling that unless they cease the same on or before the 5th day of next month, they win be dedt with “ according to law.
