"What a melancholy spectacle will
be presented to-da3 in the neighbor
ing city of Portland. Two men,
in the prime of physical life, at an
age when the powers of bod' and
mind should be in full exercise
for their own welfare tmd for the
benefit of their -fellow-or-eatures, in
stead of which, stand upon the gal
lows, with rnpes about their necks,
awaiting the execution of the penaltjT
aflixed fur the punishment of the .high
est rime known to, or punishable by
the laws of man. We would turn our
backs upon this scene, and wonder if
the Angels do not weep ovar the fall
en nature, and daring wickedness of
mankind. How God can bear longer
with the wickedness of man, is ex
olained only in I J is word, which as-
ciibcs atienee and long suffering to J
His glorious perfections. It might be
well to close our eyes against, ami
forget such scenes, but not the causes
which lead t it. When we trace back
the causes in these men, the lirst
commencement of a wicked life was,
the breaking of the tilth commandment
in the docalogue, which says: "Honor
thy father and thy mother, that thy
days maybe long upon the land which
the Lord thy God giveth thee." This
commandment violated, at an early
day, by their breaking away from the
restraints of home, the path of vice
and wickedness, was open and broad
lief ore them, and at each stqp in their
downward course, they iound abund
ant helps, until they now stand upon
the scaffold, to be ushered into the
presence of their tinl Judge, who
will render a just judgment, not only
upon ihem, but upon all who helped
them on their downward course of
sin. 2sow for
TUG TRACTICAL LBSSOX.
And for this, we must go beyond the
observation of the eye of man unaided
by revelation. God has told us, that
He will bring every work into judg
ment, whether it be good or whether
it Ihj evil; so, chat no evil doers can
escape, whether the' escape punish
ment inflicted by the laws of man, or
not. At that judgment bar, exact
and cuual justice will be doue. God
is his own witness, and "He needs

being admitted, can we avoid asking
the questien: do these, or any crim
inals, or the poor inebriate who fills a
drunkard's grave, or any votary of
vice, have to pay the ivhole .penalty of
the broken law Nay, verily I Hun
dreds are involved in his or her guilt,
by helping them on, or perhaps, first
mducirig them from the paths of vir
tue. We have only to walk the streets of
our cities, perhaps, upuntliej. Sabbath,
and behold the frosted windows which
hide from the gaze of the public, the
attraction to drunkenness and vice, for
sinail preinium.legalizedby law. Threre
111 three-fourths of the poverty drunk
enness and crime, has its origin; and,
because the business is logalized, it is
considered right and honorable. It
might as justly be said, that a man
iiuight be lijcnsed to keqp a.mad dog,
whose bite would be certain death,
and say to the people, they must keep
away from the dog if they would avoid
death. The licensing of places where
alcoholic liquors are sold, is far more
reprehensible than the licensing the
mad dg, for the mad boast would
have no attractions, but the dram
shop is made attractive, to draw men to
their ruin. When we see from the
