.r-r,r"J 'r r' -r- THE RELIGIOUS AND MORAL SlA TE OF FISHGUARD. A FISHGUARDIAN.- vVe can only allow your letter on the above question to appear over your proper name, as it contains personal remarks. Another Correspondent writes :— To the Editor of the COUNTY ECHO. SlE,—In looking over the Echo of the 15th cf last month, on the moral condition of our town, and the two following sympathetic remarks sent by a Churchman and a Non- tonformist in your issue of the 22tid Feb., I md them looking on the surface of things without coming to particulars. Let us look things in the face. When we consider the lumber of public-houses in Upper and Lower Fishguard, the wonder is that our town is so good. when our young people are surrounded by so many temptations. The power to withstand and conquer this evil is entrusted to the Church of God unitedly. There are in Fishguard ten ministers of the gospel. What a power if they understood each, other as to the moral condition of the town. If twelve men filled by the J'enteeostal spirit, the power from on high, were sent by our Saviour to face a whole world lying in heathenism and superstition, to conquer all the power of the devil and deliver his captives, for they that the Son makes free are free indeed. Is it not full time for all the Churches to join and come out against the common enemy, and withstand its terrible encroachments in the name of our God. What a noble example we have in Gedeon with his 300 men with their pitchers and lamps—simple means to conquer the hosts of the Midianites in the name of their God. The sword of the Lord and of Gedeon did the glorious work. WhenJDavid saw a lion and a bear taking a lamb from the flock, his whole soul wos aroused he slew them both and delivered the lamb. How many a human soul in Fishguard are in the jaws of the roaring lion. Do we not see theiii ? Do we not hear their cry ? Can they say No one careth for my soul?' When David went down to te his brethren in the army, was, not his whole soul aroused when he heard Goliath the uncircumcised giant .blaspheming the God of the armies of Israel. lie took the most simple means for the battle. No sword, no spear, the stripling took, but choose a pebble from the brook When the Philistines saw that their giant had fallen, they all fled. Let us join heart and soul in an united appeal to God in prayer that he may prosper the simple means-a pebble from the brook of total abstinence, that it may reach the vitals of intemperance, and destroy its powers, for we have no hope of growing wheat in a bog it must be cleared and dried ready to receive the word. Let us all be in the same spirit as those in Ezeciel's time. And the Lord said unto him, 'Go through the midst of Jerusalem and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abomina- tion that be done in the midst thereof.' How deeply the inhabitants of our town felt when the crew of the I Evviva' were in danger, particularly when a lady was reported to be on board the vessel. If so much grand energy was enacted to save that crew from drowning, how much more ought we to feel for the eternal salvation of those that are in danger of eternal perdition ?
