THOUGHTS ON IMMORTALITY. That we belong to a class of beings, whose existence will not cease with their present earthly life, but will continue elsewhere, although the body we now animate will decay and separate into its elementary particles, we believe from reason, from our intellectual feelings, from the consent of the best philosophers of all ages, from the traditions of all nations, and from the deciding communications of the Christian Revelation. We do not perish when our naterial frame dissolves : our thinking and feeling principle survives its fleshy limbs and organs, which are but the instruments of its use and pleasures here; and will, after the visible death of our corporeal frame, and in reunion with another, possess its consciousness, its sensitiveness, and its active powers, under such other circumstances as its Creator shall appoint.
