It seems that Socket, h.id been a •dissolute felIbWi and a great fighter ; but just beforeihe fiattle of ihe Thams had suddenly changed his course, arid become pious. He, however had a strong inclination for the camp, and volunteered his services to assisi the Colonel against the enenry, under ron- dition that he should have the privilege of preaching to the soldiers of the eunip. The condition was gladly e m ­ braced, and Sucket wasinsthlled as major, under a sort o f cerlificate from the commanding officer.

He has heard the plead­ ings of a father’s prayers, and has wit­ nessed a mother’s tears for his salvation from his childhood. He has been affec­ tionate in feeling, and amiable in life. He has always resolved that he would at some future period, attend to the sub­ ject of religion.—The Spirit has striven With him, and he has said, *‘go thvway for this time.’’ To the urgencj' o f his pious fiiends he has replied, “wait for T h e N o b ility c f labor.

Listen! “The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and lam pot saved.” He speaks again; it is in the sad moa­ ning of delirium. He raves of hell and demons and endless woe. Look at his distracted mother. Look at his broken­ hearted father. Their son is lost, and they are weeping that he ever was born.
