THE GREAT WORLD-PRISON
AND THE LIBERATOR.

WHEN preaching in Dover, the mayor of the town lent the ancient town-
hall for the service, and in passing along, I noticed a large number of grated
windows upon a lower level. These belonged to the prison cells, where
persons committed for offenses were confined. It struck me as a singular
combination, that we should be preaching the gospel of liberty in the upper
chamber, while there were prisoners of the law beneath. Perhaps, when we
sang praises to God, the prisoners heard us; but the free word above did
not give them liberty, nor did the voice of song loose their bonds. Alas!
what a picture is this of many. We preach liberty to captives; we proclaim
the acceptable year of the Lord; but how many remain year after year in the
bondage of Satan, slaves to sin. We send up our notes of praise right
joyously to our Father who is in heaven, but our praises cannot give them
joy, for alas! their hearts are unused to gratitude. Some are mourning on
account of unpardoned sin, and others are deploring their blighted hopes,
for they have looked for comfort where it is never to be found.

The little circumstance mentioned fixed itself in my mind, and in private

meditations thrust itself upon me. In my day-dream I thought that some
angelic warder was leading me along the corridors of this great world-
prison, and bidding me look into the various cells where the prisoners were
confined, reminding me ever and anon, as I looked sorrowful, that
\u201cJehovah looseth the prisoners.\u201d

The first cell is called the common prison \u2014 the ward of SIN. All the
human race have been prisoners here; and those who this day are perfectly
at liberty, once wore the heavy chain, and were immured within the black
walls. I stepped into it, and instead of hearing notes of mourning and
lament, I heard loud and repeated bursts of laughter. The mirth was
boisterous and obstreperous. The profane were cursing and blaspheming;
others were shouting as though they had found great spoil. I looked into
the faces of some of the criminals, and saw sparkling gaiety: their aspect
was rather that of wedding-guests than prisoners. Walking to and fro, I
noticed captives who boasted that they were free, and when I spoke to
them of their prison-house, and urged them to escape, they resented my
