1 THE right of defence, when attacked, is considered a first law of nature: it is not only, inherent in man, but exists with equal strength in the insect and the reptile; hence the adage, " tread on a worm and it will tarn." Israel has long been a "worm, and no man;" and has borne (to call it by no harsher name) the gainsayings of the Gentiles.— It has indeed been a long day, "so that none is like it." The day of Jacob's trouble has now endured nearly eighteen centuries. And will it never have an end? will enlargement never come? Has it not in a great measure already come, or at least commenced? For our manifold transgression it has eventuated, as was foretold by Moses, (to whom is peace.) "And among these nations shalt thou find no ease, neither shall the sole of thy feet have rest: but theLord shall give thee there a trembling heart, and failing of eyes, and sorrow of mind. And thy life shall hang in doubt before thee; and thou shalt fear day and night, and shalt have none assurance of thy life."*

But is this all that has happened to us? Has not the Lord, blessed be his holy name, also turned our captivity, as he promised us? and may we not now with confidence look for the speedy fulfillment of his word to us :—" That then the Lord thy God will turn thy captivity, and will have compassion on thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations whither the Lord thy God has scattered thee ?"t

He has indeed turned our captivity, and the weight of the curse is taken off from us. We have enlargement; we have assurance of life: our life doth no longer hang in doubt; and we now, blessed be his name, find ease and rest to our feet. There is then no further occasion for the trembling heart, since, like other men, we are secured in life, and property -, in short, in equal rights, among which are conceded the rights of
