About one million one hundred thousand

A ooop old working man was onco in company 
with a fellow workman who occasionally introduced 
into conversation the words, " devil, deuce," &c., 
and who at last took the name of God in vain.

THE STRANGE PREACHER. 

The message which tho minister of the gospel 

brings is indeed a strange message, and which 

those who do not receive it cannot understand. 

Tho following incident extracted from tho " Life 

'imes of the Countess of Huntingdon," 

beaatifnlly illustrates that gospel to which so 

many are ludifTerent, and others despise, but 

which is worthy of all acceptation." 

Some ladies called one Saturday morning to 

xy a visit to Lady Huntingdon, and during the 

sit her Ladyship inquired of them if they had 

;er heard Mr. Whitefield preach! Upon being 

answered in tho negative, sho said, " I wish 

They promised her Ladyship they would ccr- 

inly attend— they were as good as their word : 

id upon calling on the Monday morning on Lady 

Huntingdon, she anxiously enquired if tlioy had 

heard Mr. Whitefield on the previous evening. 

and how they liked him? The reply was, "0 

my Lady, of all the preachers we ever heard ho 

most strange and nnaccountabte. Among 

preposterous things (would your Ladyship 

believe it?) he declared that Jesus Christ was so 

wilhng to receive sinners, that he did not object 

iivo oven the devil's castaways I Now, my 

Lady, did you ever hear of such a thing since you 

■orn?" To which her Ladyship made the 

following reply: "There is something, I acknow, 

Ige, a little singular in tho invitation, and I di 

t recollect to have ever met with it before ; hut

Upon his entering the drawing-room. Lady 
Huntingdon said, " Mr. Whitefield, these ladit 
have been preferring a very heavy charge agoini 
you, and I thought it best that you should con 
up and defend yourself: they say. that in yoi 
sermon last evening, speaking of the willingness 
of Jesus Christ to receive sinners, you expressed 
yourself in the following terms — ' So ready

ho heard of tho pamlul event. Ho had saved 
about fifty pounds by his laboor. Immediately 
he went to the south of England, and called on 
the pious minister the day before the funeral of 
his wife and children. I need not tell you that 
their meeting was a very afl'ecting one. I re- 
ceived a letter from this minister, tolling mo what 
was bis astonishment to find, when this man 
had left him, that a small bag, tied up, wa£ laid 
upon the table, containing fifty pounds. The 
workman afterwards said, " 1 should never have 
been able to save this, if it had not been for your 
giving mo that tract, and for its after conse- 
quences ; and I felt that the least I could do for 
the great blessing God has vouchsafed to me, was 
to give yon of my personal substance, to show my 
gratitude to Him and my love for you."— Sir 
MoaTON ^STO, Bart. 



he is willing to receive the devil's castaways."* 
Mr. Whitefield immediately replied, " I certai 
ly,my Lady, must plead guilty to the charge: whe- 
ther I did what was right or otherwise, your Lady- 
ship shall judge from the following circumstance. 
Did^oor Ladyship notice, about half an hour ago 
a very modest single rap at the door? It was 
given by a poor, miserable looking, aged female, 
who requested to speak with me. I desired her 
to be shown into the parlour, when she accosted 
me iu the following manner : — ' I believe. Sir, it 
was you that preached last evening?' 'Yes, I did.' 
' Ah, Sir, I was accidentally passing the door, and 
hearing the voice of some one preaching, I did what 
I have never been in the habit of doing — I went 
in ; and one of the first things I heard you say 
was, that Jesus Christ was so willing to receive 
sinners, that he did not object to receiving the 
devil's castaways. Now, Sir, I have been his 
slave for many years, and am so worn out in hi* 
service, that I think I may with truth be called 
one of the devil's castaways. Do you think, Sir, 
that Jesus Christ would receive me?' I (said Mr. 
Whitefield) assured het there was not a doubt of 
it if she were but willing to go to Him."' 

From the sequel, it appeared that this was the 
case, and that it ended in tho sound conversion 

assured, from most respectable authority, that 
the woman left a happy testimony behind her, 
that, though her sins bad been of a crimson hue, 
the atoning blood of Christ had washed them

In that early day ardent spirits were dee 
indispensable to warmth in winter. When c 
moncing a journey, and at every stopping-place 
along the road, the traveller always used intoxi- 
cating drinks to make him warm. 

" No," said Mr. L. , " I never touch any- 
thing of the kind, and I will tell you the reason — 
my wife islhecauieof it. I had been in the habit 
of meeting some of our neighbours every evening, 
for the purpose of playing cards. We assembled 
at each other's shop, andfiquors were introduced. 
After a while we met not so much for playing as 
drinking, and I used to return home late in the 
evening, more or less intoxicated. My wife always 
met me at the door affectionately, and when I 
chided her for eibting up so late for me, she kindly 
replied, • I prefer doing so, for I cannot sleep wbeo 

"This always troubled mo. I wished in 
heart that she would only begin to scold me ; 
then I could have retorted, and relieved my c 
science. But she always met me with the sa 
gentle and loving spirit. 

" Things passed on thus for some time, whe 
at last resolved that I would, by remaining very 
late, and returning much intoxicated, provoke h( 
displeasure somuch as to cause her to lecture n: 
when I meant to answer bet with severity, and 
thus, by creating another issue between u

■WoHKiKo Men of ScoUand baring experienced the

towards extending tbe same boon to their fellow sons

paid on Saturday ! !

It is, I think, one of the greatest evils of this countrj' 
that toil has become so excessive, that all considerations 
of health — all attention to intellectual improvement — 
and even the time which ought to bo devoted to spiri- 
tual worship, is lost in that excess of labour which the 
people of this country undergo. — Lord John Bussell.

There is nothing that young people need

I ONCE visited a travelling tinker, 
who bad become lame, and was un- 
able to follow his daily labour. He 
was in distress, and required help. 
The pipe on the hob shewed that he 
was a smoker. On my making some 
allusion to the pipe, he said, " Both 
me and wife have smoked, sir, ever 
^\ j since we were wed. We have never 
bail more nor less, than ' a pcn'otb 
of bacca' every day." Uaviiig as- 
ccit'iuicd the length of time they had been married, I took 
out m\ pencd and made a calculation as to the amount sjicnt 
by them in these * pennies." Judge of the tinker's sur|irise, 
wlien 1 thus addressed him. "Wy friend, if you had placed 
the money in tlie Savings Bank, (where you would have had 
interest allowed for your money,) instead of wasting it in 
Binoke, you might to-day have felt independent of others, for 
your Pennies would have amounted in your bank-book to 
the noble sum of NINETY POUNDS!" 



CONDENSED SMOKE. 
A WORKING man informs us that after smoking tobacco for 
about thiity years, he gave it up about five years ago. At 
that time, there was established in the town where he resides, 
a "Five Years Friendly Society," of which he became a member. 
Into this society he paid the amount tvhich he had formerly spent 
in tobacco, and when the society was broken up last month, he 
had the gratification to carrj home the five years" smuke, in the 
contlensed form of FOURTEEN POUNDS & SEVEN-

You will need it for " beef and bread " this winter. WOBKINQ MEN'S WIVES 1 spend nothing in

PRECIOUS TRUTH. 
For God BO loved tho world, that He 
■ftve S'-'' ^"^^ bogottea ^od, that whoBo- 
gp tjelieveth in Him should not perish, 
but have everlasting life. 

For God sent not His Son into the 
-nrld to condemn tho world; but that 
the world thi-ough Him might bo saved. 
See John iii. 16, 17. 



THE BRITISH WORKMAN. 



SOLEMN TRUTH. 
' Be not decoived; God is not mocked: 
I fgp vhatsoever a man soweth, that shall 
I ha also reap. 

For he that soweth to hia flesh shall 
of tbe floeli reap corruption; but he 
I that Boweth to the Spirit shall of tho 
Spirit reap life everlasting.

THE PAITHFTJL DOGS- 

It seems almost incredible, and yet we are assured it i* 
(rue. Sometime ago, a sporting gentleman was suddenly 
called away, by urgent business, from his shooting-box. 
Expecting to return in a few hours, he left his fine dogs 
abut up in one of the rooms in which game was kept. 
Instead of returning as expected, the gentleman had to 
start for a distant part of the country. He iorgot all 
about his poor dogs. On his return, several days later, 
he found them quite dead. Although starving for food, 
tbe noble creatures had not even touched their mfuttir's
