BEFORE & AFTER PUBLlcfWORfciHIP. \ One summer's day, whin sitting i n m y house, after dinner, looking ou' of the window, I saw a person at a distance, seated on a log of wood looking attentively towards the house. I wan a little supprised: and looking again presently, I saw him in the same position. Thinking it-svas a person in distress, I went to him to make somt) inquiries, and found he was -one of the society of Frifends, who believed heTiad a call to visit me, and'ivas waitjng there for a further opening I gladly received him into my house. As he sat •some time in silence, I concluded he had no spe-- cial message to me, and ventured to break silence. ,by asking~him, how he thought we could best spend an hour to our mutual edification. He said,' \ perhaps thou hast a plan to propose.\ \ I have been thinking,\ I replied, \that if we could tell each other with goocl temper and sufficient free- dom, what appears to us to be the leading defects in Quakerism and Methodism, we might learn something of importance.\ \ Perhaps thou wilt begin first,\ he said ; whieh I did, and continued for some time declaring my undissembled senti- ments. When* I had finished, and he heard me patiently without any reply, he began with the same freedom as follows : \ I have frequently observed, when thy people go to worship, they talk about huying and selling, or any other world- ly project, till they arrive at the very threshold of the meeting, but when thou seest $1 friend going to meeting, he walks in silence, inattentive to all he sees and hears ; seeking a preparation in the temple of his heart, to wait upon God, who is a Spirit. When thy people come out of meeting, it is like the disturbing of a beehive—every one has his calls to make, his message to deliver, or instructions to receive. When all this is ended, some friend is waiting for him according to ap- pointment, to inquire how he liked the preacher, &c : The reply probably is, \ He is an excellent preacher! what a (low of language ! how zealous he is ! this is one of the best sermons I ever heard,\ &c. Whereas, if thou wert to see the Friends, when they come out of meeting, thou wouldst re- mark, each retires in silence; for though he is not in the meeting house, Tie is conscious of the presence of that Being who filleth immensity, and •w,ho' mak.eth the heart of the contrite- his habita- tion. And if any remarks be made on'a-speaker among us, they are of this kind—I think friend ~— has been favored to-day; ascribing all the praise to Him to whom it justly belongs.\ I exclaimed, \ Guilty, guilty, the naked truth ! I am the man! and by the grace of God I hope I shall be benefitted by what I have heard.\ I on- m WtL&IMm 1TUSTOW, •jOAMILY GROCER cBK^fcK lake shore. Water-St. 1 door south of Silas Chapin's. '..STORAGE, °a moderate terms, in a convenient-store, on the Geneva, June 2i, 1829. 45 ly knew of one thing more to make this a Chris- tian meeting, and that was, uniting in humble and hearty prayer to God for his blessing upon our conversation. But the mention of prayer niiide him very uneasy, and he remonstrated a- gainst it, lest their people hearing of it should re- primand him. At length, after I had promised secrecy, he consented. While \Ye were thus en- gaged with God, we were much affected, melted and blessed ; and we parted rejoicing that we met in the name of the Lord. Ever since my inter- view with this -Friend, his remarks have had their proper influence upon my conduct. Soon after, 1 took a sitting in a pew down stairs, that I might retire as soon as service was concluded, without uttering one word, if it could be avoided.- Sonie of my brethren may have thought me re- served and singular, when going to the house of God and returning from it; but they knew not what this pious Cluaker had said to me, and the consequent conviction which yet habitually remains upon my.mind\; and which I hope will continue to influence my conduct to nay life's end.\ when dead as soon forgotten as a dead'horse, only to be remembered with disgust and horror even by his own offspring. In thus bearing down on him with a heavy hand, he solicited a truce —began to shed tears—said he was not his own master, and that I was too hard upon hjni. Mute silence con- tinued for several minutes. Strangft to tell, but so.it happened, most fortunately, to illustrate by a striking example all I had said, and more—in the interim, behold a miserable wwtch, in decent- at- tire, lay stretched out, prostrate, directly before Us,, in the middle of the road, his face apparently sunk in soft sand, his faithful dog sitting erect by' his side, as a sentinel of protection, for he growled and showed his teeth on our approach. ~g&-r yejn- ,ed up his horses as if in self-reproach, an$?$ra'& on . the point of sponging from his wagon'fa. felkRV sympathy, both beihg the votaries of Sir $ichard, , to dpag the beast out of the road. I seized KB} a- gain by the arm, saying you shall not do it unless you have move strength than myself. Why, says he, much agitated, some wagon may run over him. Be it so, says I; the sooner the Woi'.i is rid of such a monster, the better for himself, his rk3U' v i his country and Lis friends. On this he resumed his seat. Now, says I, look at this horrid spectacle—lay your hand upon your heart and tell me, &s if under the solemnity of an oath, which of those objects do you'Biost j-espect—the man, or his faithful sober dog ? The only reply he made, was, '• This is worse than all you have said.\ Wepassedon, and in coming in sight of his dwelling he seized me By the hand— his eyes glazed in dew-drops, declaring \ he never felt so bad,\ and never was so well convinced of the baseness and folly of his crime, the sin of drukenness; and voluntarily pledged himself, in the presence of God and man, he would jiereafter withhold his grip from the bottle, in a hope, with a blessing, to be restored to liimself, to bis family and church. He pressed me to stop and share the hospitality of his humble i'me. My appetite heing sharp set, having three miles to walk, and 'a de- sire to see his family, I did not hesitite-v Stie wftS, to all appearance, a good, amiable -wjfe^-the chil- dren were, in consequence, all decently, dad. She gave us an excellent dinner of friedfowls and onions—I felt \grateful to my God to have been made a humble instrument in his handS^i doing them so much good as I fondly hoped—ana thus took my leave with a, light heart, and marched 011 with the agility of a boy—aged -67. - \ But must I not treat my friends, tchen they call > to see mc ?\ —\TREAT\ them! yes, to be sure; and treat them WELL. \ Treat\ them with respect and hospitality. And take care not to insult them, especially by offering them strong drink. To do this is as much as to say that you suspect they love it, that they drink it at. home, that they cannot well do without it, that they called upon you with the expectation of getting some, and would be an- gry if they went away disappointed. Where are the ladies and gentlemen that would \ treat\ their friends in this manner 1 — Phil. Sf limes.

Geneva, ZdJwc 1329- '? 43 S It would seem as if heaven itself had interposed to save our country from the lowest point of deg- radation, by directing public sentiment through- out America, in such a manner to oppose and trample under foot the shameful vice of intemper- ance, and render the practice odious in the eyes of man as it must be in the eyes of God. Our clergy, our females, have done much, and yet labor zealously in stirring np this spirit: may the blessings of heaven rest upon them and grant them perseverance.and success. From all quarters we find every means in ope- ration to produce the desirable effect. Haying by chance come into possession of the following ori- ginal document, \ a voice from the north,\ we in- sert it with pleasure, under the impression it em- anates from the pen of a well known traveller.— The incidents it relaxes are so interesting, so well told, and so much in point, we dare hope its pub- lication will promote, the good cause.— Alb. Adv. A FRAGMENT. The late-president Adams the first, in answer to some moral society on the subject of intemperance, said, in'effect, that there were more confirmed drunkards in the United States of America, than in any other given portion of the globe, with a comparative population. What a heart-sickening, degraded admission!— the more poignant from its truth. Another writer has also said that foreign travellers, who come to spy out the nakedness of our land, stigmatized us as \ a nation of drunlcards ,-\ although we must admit tnat there is some .justifiable pretextin the illiberal aspersion, yet it is unjust in the extreme to implicate the sober portion ofthe nation in such a beastly fraternity. * ' » *# * * * \5* While rambling on the borders of lake Cham- plain in 1826, and being at Keesville, seeking a passage to Etna Furnace, I noticed , former- ly a respectable man, but recently discarded from^ tlie religious society to which he belonged, as a con- firmed drunkard. He was driving a two horse wagon; on asking him if he would take apassenger to Peru-—I paus- ed two minutes, looking him intently in the eye, while he was urging'me to mount—my gaze was so marked, and malting no reply, it could not escape his notice.' Why .dost thou, says' he, as i t were, look me through and through ? If I should tell you, said I, you would be offended. He pressed 'for a reason—I frankly an3wered->--to satisfy my- self if 'hou art drunk or sober. Convinced that he was for this time sobW, and on his promise to ^continue so, (fbr h e was sunk in debased humility, from a consciousness of hjs degrading propensity,) I mounted and seated myself by his side; m/two minutes he was steering under a tavern shed. I seized him by the arm—stop, says I, ...... and I will take my leave. \He expostulated vehement- ly either from a sense of shame, a resjtect'ibr me, or both combined, aud calling forth some remnant of lurking pride, in reverting to\ belter :days; on the renewal of his promise, I proceeded* on, and began to admonish him on the enormity of his hab- its? lie was mute: shall I proceed* iiiys 1 J i-shall I give umbrage if I talk to you i n frankness as a friend ?

An account was, soriie months since, given in the papers, of a discovery of tlie Book, of Jasber. We have no where seen so full an account of the circumstances connected with the discovery, as are found in the following article from a late num- ber of the New Monthly Magazine:— Curimts Literary Discovery. —-The following is a singular discovery, said to be a translation from the original Hebrew manuscript of the book of Jasber, referred to as a work of credit and repu- tation in the holy scriptures, first in Joshua x. 13; and again, 2 Sam. i. 18. This book was kept as a memorial of the great events Which havp hap- pened from the beginning of time, especially to the family and descendants of Abraham, by the kings of Judah. After the Babylonish captivity, it fell into the possession of the Persian kings, and was preserved with great care hxthe city-of Gaz- na; from whence a translation was procured by ft — rr-i—* A * — : i —K-7 ^ l~.U~.l ..— •in~,Q|h CJlnttt^ ry, at the cost of several bars of gold, presenTSor- to those who bad the custody of it. He brought this translation to his own country, having em- ployed, with his companions, seven years in a pil- grimage, three of which were spent inGazna, in order to his obtaining this important and interesting work. After his return to England, he was made Abbot of Canterbury, and having lived in the highest honor, died in the year 804, leaving this with other manuscripts to his friend, a clergyman in Yorkshire. It appears to have been preserved with religious care for many centuries, until about one hundred years since, it fell into the hands of a gentleman, who certifies, that on its cover was the following testimony of our great reformer, Wickliffe: ' I have read the book of Jasher twice over, and 1 much approve of it as a pieces of great antiquity and curiosity; but I cannot consent that it should be made a part of the canon of scripture.\ (Signed, \WicKWrKE.\) This gentleman, who conceals his name, communicated it to a noble lord, who appears to have been high in office, when a rumor prevailed of a new translation of the Bible. His lordship's opinion flf it was, that it should be published, as a work of great sinceri- ty, plainness and truth; and farther his lordship added, \ It is my opinion the book of Jasher ought to have been printed in the holy bible, hefoi^ the book of Joshua.\ From that period this invalua- ble work lias lain concealed, until by an accident, it fell into the hands ofthe present possessor, who purposes to publish it in a way worthy its excel- lence for truth, antiquity, and evident originality.
