But what the lowest degree of the Almighty's final vengeance may amount to, God forbid we should, any of us try; for whoever sins purposely, or carelessly, in hopes of a small punishment, will, for that

very reason, deserve a heavy one. Let us all, therefore, make the use that we ought both of the terrors and the mercies of the Lord; awing ourselves by the former from transgressing our duty, and encouraging ourselves by the latter to the utmost diligence in performing it ; that so we may pass through life with comfort, meet death with cheerfulness, and having faithfully served God in this world, be eternally and abundantly rewarded by Him in the next.

C.W. GIBBS, Printer, Dublin.
