ANECDOTES OF THE PULPIT.

"I say the Pulpit (in the sober use
Of its ligitimate, peculiar pow'rs,)
Must stand acknowledg'd, while the world shall stand,
The most important and effectual guard,
Support, and ornament of Virtue's cause.".

COWPER.

WHAT IS TRUTH? Father Fulgentio, the friend and biographer of the celebrated Paul Sarpi, both of them secret friends to the progress of religious reformation, was once preaching upon Pilate's question, “What is truth ?: He told the audience that he had at last, after many searches, found it out, and holding forth a New Testa ment, said, “ Here it is, my friends ;'' but adde:: sorrowfully, as he returned it to his pocket, It is a sealed book.It has been since the glory of the reformation to break the seal which priestly craft had! imposed upon it, and to lay its blessed treasures open to the universal participation of mankind.
