No.

not the aid of human power human eloquence; he solicits the influence of no monarch, no philosopher.

He does what no teacher ever did before. He turns from the schools, and walks by the sea of Galilee. He sees a few fishermen mending their nets, and he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.' A few fishermen to reform the world! Men of obscure birth; destitute of learning; without eloquence; without power; without influence. How chimerical! What a foundation for a new kingdom; a kingdom that is to rise above all others, to exceed all others, and to last when all others shall have forever passed away! What apparent madness! What apparent folly! A few fishermen ! to go out and meet the philosophy and learning of a world; to establish new laws; to overturn every idolatrous temple on earth; to subdue kingdoms; in short, to effect an entire revolution in all the thoughts and feelings of every moral being upon the globe! How improbable! Yet such were the means employed by him who bears the name of Wonderful! And how appropriate the name ! What a different course would earthly wisdom have pursued ! Such character must have been formed in heaven. There is nothing earthly in it! It bears the impress of a God! No wonder that a voice was heard when he was on earth, saying, “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.' But we must stop.

There is no end to the glories and beauties that dwell in the character of Jesus. Like the sunbeam which remains uncontaminated whatever the object on which it may shine, the

Saviour emerged from this region of guilt, and reentered the portals of heaven as pure and unspotted as when he left the bosom of the Father.' We close with the following magnificent passage from Jean Paul Richter's “Dawnings for Germany.' - An individual once trod the earth who swayed remote ages, and founded an eternity of his own; gently blooming and pliant as a sunflower, burning and drawing as the sun, he even with his 'mild aspect moved himself and nations, and centuries together towards the universal and primeval Sun!'

"When all these WONDROUS NAMES I view,

Like diadems of light,
Or gems of every form and hue,

That charm the ravished sight,
I ask, enchained with sweet surprise,
Is this a dream illudes mine eyes,
Or meteor gleams that vainly rise,

Then leave my soul in night ?

Ah! no: far more than seraphs see,

Who gaze with folded wing,
My precious Saviour is to me,-

And more than verse can sing.
Yet, all his wondrous names disclose,
Her own my happy spirit knows,
To calm her fears and soothe her woes,

And full salvation bring.'
