When a gentleman was inspecting a house in Newcastle, with a view to hiring it as a residence, the landlord took him to the upper window, expatiated on the extensive prospect, and added, 'You can see Durham Cathedral from this window on a Sunday;' 'Why on a Sunday above any other day?' enquired our friend, with some degree of surprise. The reply was conclusive enough. 'Because on that day there is no smoke from those tall chimneys.' Blessed is the Sabbath to us when the earth-smoke of care and turmoil no longer beclouds our view; then can our souls full often behold the goodly land, and the city of the New Jerusalem.
