Dear Friend a one reason Why re a Ion is necessary is because of our depravity. And there is another i for this necessity growing out of the corruption of nature it is this be until renewed by the holy ghost take no Delight in the service of is a spirit and they that worship st worship him in spirit and in truth in 24, but How can you Render 1 worship to him when your very is opposed to him ? How can you p in spirit and in truth when your is flesh and not spirit when you Are and not spiritual ? is holy holiness becomes his House is essential to his service hut How Ful being Delight in the service of of it the holiness of god makes object of dread to the sinner it with fear that fear which hath and How then can. He worship it love which Oas Teth out fear and flights in god As the chief Good is just the sinner is exposed to the 1 infliction of his Justice and How n he draw near with a complacency Light to that being who will never one of his attributes upon the altar Ler ? who will never sacrifice his to his mercy nor his holiness to his Lence and love ? a a you May return fathers House a said a kind fiend Bedient son who had wandered away a return to your fathers House her will do nothing but said the wanderer a a a Justice is fear i know i have done wrong .1 receive Justice i shall fare poorly a and Justice Justice i just what the ars and Well May he fear it when tor neglects Christ and remembers Briess transgressions of the Law deep depravity of his nature. He by Delight in gods services in the that god who is holy just and 1 his nature is renewed. Before a Elight in god and his service he a born again. This is True of each. A one it is True of you. In order t in gods service and thus be serve him Here and hereafter and a for Ever you must be Bora again a read the Bible and attend worship on the Sabbath and engage religious duties and yet take no sure in these things or find in them Aal Delight. You May do All this Oas Herod did Many things you All this and More As a task hoping Merit the approbation of god or do All these thing Sand More with kind and degree of satisfaction thus to Purchase the divine favor do them from habit or because aed so to do from your infancy but Comfort and satisfaction in gods for its own Sake and with a vie to you cannot take until you have a the you must be born again. 1 is not to be bought with heart est a with solemn sounds upon a what you need is a formed to his blessed image and i service will be your Delight and i find your highest pleasure in doing Bering his holy will. Then you can 1 Hope you now can because renewed frill o god be done Ely connected with this last is another n Why regeneration is necessary. Tilled you can have no Delight in the Law d this Law is a transcript of his ter and you cannot Delight in the f god until you can Delight in god if. The Law is like god holy just Ood it is holiness Justice and truth red in words As the st inward of moral Leace. It is the Rale of life and Paul say because he was born again i Dein the Law of god after the inward rom. Vii 22. It coincided with Tew nature and his new nature was in ony with it. Thus god promises to his Law in our inward parts and write it Jur hearts which is the same As giving new hearts hearts of flesh instead of i to of Stone hearts to love his Law and gtd to Render obedience to . 31�?34 Fez.

Bis Law requires what ? love supreme i to god love with All the heart soul Goth and mind but the carnal Mindis not love but enmity against god How then can it Del get in his Law or accept of it As a Rule of life ? this enmity must be removed love must fill its place the Law must be put into the mind and. Written in the heart As. It is in Heb. Viii 10 that is our souls a must be put into Harmony with the Law we must be conformed to it and inclined to obey it we Muse be made to Delight in it and to follow it As the Rule of our Obedi enee and in order to this we must be born again. This be Fossity rests upon All. For god is our lawgiver. His Law is binding on us it is binding on you and As you have broken it and have a nature opposed to it so you must be renewed and made willingly and joyfully to Delight in it or you must perish you must be born John i a 7. Look a then to god for Bis spirit to renew and Sanctify you and fit you for life and death and heaven. Commit yourself to Jesus Christ a and he will save you. Read Luke xi., xv., and .

For the presbyterian Banner and advocate revival at lower ten mile a Rev. Or. Mckinney dear brother a when the Clouds of mercy gather and the refreshing showers of divine upon any of the Heights of the. Thirsty Hill of Zion it should certainly be recorded As a manifestation of devout thankfulness on the part of the recipients and As an additional reason to encourage and stimulate others to More fervent and importunate prayer and to More arduous and continued efforts for the enlargement and Prosperity of the kingdom of Jesus. In conform hey with a time hallowed usage in Harmony with the example of others of Zions watchmen of More mature Wisdom and experience and As your request preferred to others leads me to infer in compliance with your it own desire to be advised of and to publish abroad the glorious doings of the lord in every part of his spiritual heritage and a inducement is afforded me to Send you the glad tidings that a a the lord has done great things for us also whereof we Are acting in accordance with a the recommendation of our Synod at its last meeting i preached a Sermon at the time designated by the Synod on a the necessity it and importance of a revival of religion and the scriptural Means. Of promoting a the. Session were then called together and agreed to. Invite All those who were sincerely desirous of sire Vival and prosperous state of religion in the congregation to. Meet with them and unite with them and. Prayer for. The outpouring of god s spirit and the revival of his work in the midst of us. At our first meeting an engagement was entered into by All present that they would also offer unitedly Earnest prayer in secret that the lord would visit us with his salvation and that they would select particular individuals and make their conversion a subject of special prayer to god this state of things continued for about two months until our next communion season which occurred on the fourth Sabbath of december. I was assisted by the Rev or. Smith of Canonsburg whose preaching was in demonstration of the spirit and with Power. It was a time of deep a and solemn interest though there was then no visible sign of special Awakening. The session however determined to continue. The services for a few Days immediately succeeding the communion believing that there was a secret influence at work which,.would Boon Manifest itself. Accordingly the services were continued and it was soon evident that the spirit of god was present in the midst of us. First one and then another and still others were awakened the number continued steadily to Marease. Almost every Day there were new inquirers seeking the Way of salvation. Soon those first awakened began to indulge a Hope of an interest in Christ our meetings were continued for a about four weeks. For. About ten Days after our communion i was alone. After that time valuable and efficient Aid was rendered by Rev. Or. Alrich Rev. Or. Brownson and Rev. Or. Wines. To All of whom my warmest gratitude is due All was silence and solemnity. The Means used were simply the Plain practical preaching of the doctrines of the gospel and the duties it inculcates accompanied with Earnest prayer for the effusion of the spirit and private conversation with inquiring be icons these Means have been greatly blessed of god. His people have been refreshed and strengthened and dying sinners have been1 made to rejoice in gods salvation the sacrament of the lords sapper was administered in our Church on the fourth Sabbath of March. Thirty three persons were on examination received into the communion of the Church Twenty four of whom received the ordinance of baptism and All United with the people of god in showing Forth the Saviours death until he come of these eight were Heads of families sixteen were Young women nine were Young men among whom will be found As we humbly Hope some who will go Forth As heralds of the Gross of these some were not above the age of twelve years. Some were by of Yhetive Providence prevented who would otherwise have United with the Church at that time. A. The Good work still moves Onward. Some Are trembling be tween Bope and fear and some Are still inquiring the Way to Zion with their faces thither Ward. These Are the things that god has wrought for us. And our heart s desire and prayer is that he would still do greater things than these. That he won appear in his glory and build up Zion every where. That Zion in All her Borders May Anse and Shine her Light having come and the glory of the lord being risen upon her. That floods of salvation May be poured out and Roll Over this land and round the world. And that god would fill the whole Earth with All the beauties and glories of Universal holi Ness. William p.

A it a. I a Ltd a. i. A Liilo a for the presbyterian Banner and advocate. Letter fro California. Stockton oar feb. 18,1857. Rev. Or my Kinney thinking that a few lines from this part of the Conn try might not be unacceptable i have taken in hand to write you a letter. I last wrote to you from los Angelos. That Region which might be a Paradise is accursed by Man b evil doings. It May properly be called a a the dark and bloody ground of California. I left los Angelos with my family in August and came to this City about of september. The change from a mexican town continually agitated by the evil deeds of robbers and murderers to a thriving Young , blessed with it Many churches and with Good society is very agreeable i assure you. We Are truly thankful to have been brought away from Luis Angelos at the time we were but we deeply sympathise with the few respectable american Iam Hes and peaceable Christian friends we left there. There has been an awful a time lately. The sheriff of the county and three men who wooo Mhamed him in an attempt to break up a gang of robbers. The people turned out in great strength broke up the band and when we last heard they had Hung twelve men and had a some fifty others in prison. The year 1857 has opened upon Cali forma with Fine prospects the vigilance committee doings of. Last summer whether justifiable or not. In the abstract seem to have been a practically Good at least a to speak presbyterian Wise they have been overruled for a things Are now quiet in every part of the. State and the spirit of Reform the desire and determination to have More integrity and morality in our Public men is Mamie stay abroad. More Snow has fallen in the mountains and More rain in. The a valleys than Quot Danng any season since 1852-8 the prospects of the Farmers Are better than they have Ever been before. The miners Are. Rejoicing in the plentiful showers and in the Prospect of Golden harvests. The people of All classes Are in Good spirits and confidently expecting better times this year than have been enjoyed for two years past. Great quantities of rain have fallen during the past week. A we have several extemporaneous Rivers flowing through Stockton. The Sacramento has risen Twenty feet. To Day the Sun shines brightly. The Birds sing among the branches the grass is springing and blossoms expanding on every Side. The air is Mitt and delicious. ,. I am sorry that to receive and publish the proceedings of the Synod of the Pacific at our meeting in october. The minutes were ordered to to sent for publication to the presbyterian and to the Banner and advocate. It is greatly to be desired that christians on the Atlantic Side should be kept informed of the state and Progress of the churches Here that their interest in the promotion of truth and piety on this coast May be deepened we cannot do without the it sympathy and prayers of our Brethren on the other Side of the continent the Synod has sent up an urgent Appeal for Mem and Money to the Domestic Board and to the general Assembly. Both Are needed Here we would find employment at once a for Many men but How they shall a be. Supported is the question if the general As Sembly could see As we Here see a the rising greatness of the Fields if they could see As we Here see the influence which the christianity of California is to. Have upon the moral condition of the Western world and. Of what you Call the Eastern world they would feel it a privilege and a duty to Send hither men and. Means of supporting them in part. So far As i know the Brethren of our Branch of the Church Are Labouring diligently and successfully with the exception of. Our excellent brother Speer. To the great regret of his friends and the friends of the chinese he has been Laid aside from Active labors for some time past. I Trust that god May restore him to his most interesting Field of usefulness. Or. Scott has not suffered any from his Independent and fearless course during the late trying season of Public reformation people Only Admire and love him-1 the More because they know him now to be Independent and fearless As before they knew him to be a Learned an Good Man or. Anderson is preaching with great acceptance a universally respected and beloved. His people have a made putting up a More commodious and suitable House of worship in a More Central part of the City. An excellent feeling prevails among a the different denominations of Christianson this a oat so far As my observation has extended. It is much to he desired that those contentions which in times past and in different lands haves sadly wounded the body of Christ and retarded the. Progress of religion May never be resumed on the Radiant shores of the Pacific. Everything in nature is a a Pacific out Here. God Grant that the different Christian families my be Pacific too. For let there be Union love and Devotion on the part of the people of god and what strongholds of sin or what league enemies can stand before them the ministers of different denominations that i have met with Are All full of Hope with regard to California. They take cheerful and animating views of the f Ture and of the divine purposes so far As they Are shadowed Forth a reference to this Western world. California is the child of Providence. How a favored and. Honoured Are they who Are a called of god to watch Over and Pray for and train this child of Promise the people of god Are looking and praying fora revival of religion on this coast. I have conversed with Many some ministers some laymen who unite in gathering from gods wonderfully gracious dealings with a sinful people. Thus far an indication of a gracious disposition on his part to do greater and better things in time to come. They look upon what god hath wrought in California As preparatory to an outpouring of his holy spirit upon the people what we Pray for and expect in Humble Joyful Reliance upon the truths and promises of scripture is a great widespread an per manent increase of interest about the kingdom of Christ and the salvation of souls .

Sides had not Russia on Austria a Appeal trodden out the fires of hungarian Freedom in 1848 ? and How base her ingratitude not to fight for Russia in the hour of peril it is offence Only to be washed out in blood. And so both parties Are angry. The grand Duke says the other Day at Turin and that publicly that a the Aust nans Are Swine cocoons and always turn their Hacks on in Battle a whereupon Francis Joseph and his court Are in a rage 1 in spite of Tho concordat with Rome protestantism makes Way in the austrian Empire. Concessions too Are about to be made to Hungary railroads Are about to develop its agn cultural resources and Best fall the hungarian protestants under the Heel of combined military and Jesuit impression robbed of their schools and of their ecclesiastical Freedom for nine years Are about to be permitted to hold a Synod of their Church protestantism in Hungary though perhaps not numbering More than two Mil Lions of the population probably less is yet influential and it is found at Vienna that it May not be despised. Let us Hope and Pray that the oldest protestant Church of Hungary Pun fied by Long affliction and leavened recently by the old truths she Ever held re introduced by the direct and indirect influence of those free.

Who the a pc Olaing Man that is to Lead the storming party against the battlements of Maynooth the Tablet informs us not. A. A Large expedition is about to be sent to China. The object a of the English government m concert with that of Fiance is to put our relations with China on a permanent and satisfactory basis lord Elgin the late governor general of Canada is to be our plenipotentiary. Meantime while this expedition will take three months and a half to reach Canton Waters other Aid will probably reach sir other quarters it is not unlikely that some of now on the coast of Persia peace being concluded will be dispatched to China Admiral Seymour had abandoned All the forts there and the object was to nver it Oleat and beat of fright attacks of War Junks until reinforcements should arrive. It seems very much a local quarrel hitherto at least. By the latest accounts the emperor of China had written to the authorities at the other four open ports to continue to Trade with the a a English As usual. At Hong Kong a Baker convicted of trying to Poison the English with. Three accomplices has been put to death by the orders of a court martial. It is probable that the quarrel will be settled before an expedition arrives. China itself is Bing More and a More disorganized by. The Success of it the rebels. Taxes cannot be collected and at Pekin All is chaos and confusion. Russia a has not been Idle All the while. She is establishing herself More and More firmly along the frontiers and , concessions by which at any time she could Send a army by water to the capital. She Quot is also sending a new staff off greek Bishops and priests into China which it appears by ancient treaty she has a right to do. The Issue of All these wondrous movements within and around China must be patiently waited for. The divine purposes Are slowly but surely evolved god a says Angus Tine it it �8 patient because he we. May Well leave the it affairs of the world in the hands of a him who made it. Turning our eyes to the continent of Europe general Tranquility for the present prevails. But at. Naples the spirit of insurrection is Rife and the fear and cruelty Mother and daughter of1 the reigning tyrant Are the same a ask before. A it was to bought that on the recent birth of a Prince an amnesty would have been published but this expectation has not been the worst characters the criminals strictly so called were let Loose not Long a ago a a and this has received from the. Neapolitan the name of a the the people there Are closely watched. The very soldiers Are distrusted and Swiss hirelings Are around the throne. _. A the relations of Austria and Sardinia Are most unsatisfactory. The former Powers about to a withdraw its ambassador from Turin altogether. The offence arises from the License of. The Sardinia which has dealt severely with the emperor and his measures in connexion with his recent visit to his Lombardi an provinces in Italy. His restoration Quot of forfeited estates and the permission to fugitive liberals to return Home were Able although selfish measures of state policy and went far to quiet the popular hatred among a people so fickle As Quot the italians the degenerate sons of the Stern and invincible romans of the Olden �time., a Sardis Mug Hajts visions of enlarge Power and a the consolidation of uni fed Italy under one Bead and King. Postponed. A a a f a Nisswa to which they Long to see their own Church conformed prayer and Faith Are mighty Rod for Hungary i Trust a glorious future m reserved. A the King of Prussia is still angry with Switzerland and slow to come to a final settlement the emperor of the French in his Zeal to get the King to visit pans forgot that he himself had once been a refugee indebted to sips shelter and hospitality and he talked to that Brave people in hectoring terms about Prussia a constitutional rights a As if he himself was not a Parven whom every a a legitimate Sovereign secretly fears and hates. And now Louis Napoleon is angry at prussians delay and re a nostrates loudly through his ambassador at Berlin. The truth is that the French emperor is setting himself Forward in Europe As a kind of a a head pacificador a it ask Daniel of Connell used to Call his Henchman Tom Steele Aud thereby virtually seeks a dictatorship. It is Well indeed that a he is for peace but still it a a perilous that every one should be called upon to do his bidding. His character is a great mystery still few Trust him. He feels that his strength is the English Alliance and both political parties hem cultivate him do israeli in the autumn took eare to play the courtier at the thu series. But then lord Palmerston had endorsed the coup do eat of 1851, while All England was indignant. Who can doubt that Louis Napoleon would prefer Palmerston in Power to any other and that the downfall of would strengthen. The miserable Orleanis and a Bourbon factions of France who hate eng land intensely in common with All the despots of Europe Here again we see. Indications of the of him who is a a excellent in working.�?�. The turkish aids Mission continues to Render its help to the american operations in the East with great vigor and earnestness. I jotted Down some notes of facts a at a recent meeting it of the London committee. In 1856, the following Grants were made. Armenian Mission. £650 constantinople do. 100 syriac Jerusalem. Ass Reeh do. Do. Do. 250 100 330 �1,430 besides these there were Grants for special objects Bebek Seminary. Ujj �64 constantinople press. 100 native .teachers,.40 Broussal Church. Bible translated. A. Sue Diar Valley schools. 16 25 10.6 5.6 0.0 12 14.6 �258 10.6, you will thus perceive How Hearty eng Lish christians. Have entered a into the a Enterprise so nobly begun by americans for the evangelization of a a Bible lands.�?�. One of the Grants to the a a Jerusalem Mission deserves a a moments notice. It is in Aid of the schools established by the excellent evangelical a Bishop of Jerusalem not Only for jewish children but for the offspring of parents who belong to the corrupt syrian can Reyes. Against ease churches to the great scandal of or High churchmen. Tract Arians and All a a apostolic al succession gentlemen the open War and the evangelicals at Home both clerical and Lay Bahk him right honestly and heartily. A. 1 mentioned in a former letter that the Wesleyan episcopal pour chef the United Sardinia defends the Liberty off a a a states were about to Send three Mission Aries to of i 1 d la re a 1 u 1 0 to Bulgaria. The turkish missions Aid i society., proposed to. The american Board of missions to assist in planting other missionaries there. This a they did on the advice of or. Hamlin. The Board however declines leaving the episcopal Wesleyan to occupy the Field a that Field however is very wide embracing a population of eight millions there is on the Southern Scopes of the Bak Kan i Buganan population not in Bulgaria Desan bed an a a most a intelligent and enter prising a whom it i amp our soon Ely in of operation with the Amer loan Missi Nanes May see its Way to operate the truth is that the Eastern missions Pill bring on a hey it Only a conflict with the greek. Go Neh Lynh Bervy Roumelia and elsewhere. That -churah1 and by bad Van to defend her i position and bit Fegly scripture which pie. Anything m Tower a a the w Tion and Miasmatic deadness of those corrupt Eastern churches who. If not under the Pope Are almost As heretical As Are Pius in Aud his cardinals. The attempt made by popish priests to take away from a protestant orphan school the. Daughter of a deceased Soldier whose widow a papist was stirred up to demand the guardianship of the child has been Defeated. The girl Alicia race was so Well trained in the protestant religion that Bhe could give ample reasons for rejecting Popery. Still the consent of parents being the Legal principle to be acted on the father a protestant being dead the Mother a papist demanding the child the priests were sure of Success and a virtual decision was made by the vice. Chancellor in their favor. But the matter ended not thus for on proof that the Mother was an unfit guard Lan having married again during the lifetime of her first husband protestant guardians were appointed. A two roman Catholic mothers have lately requested protestant societies to take charge of their children having perceived by the decision of the Queen s Bench that the priests could not legally take away children against the desire of their parents let me now without comment give some More facts about Popery in England and Ireland. A priest recently endeavoured to get regular and official admission to a in vate protestant institution for boys near London. A demand has been made by the to maoists in Warwickshire that a Young woman aged seventeen a should be delivered to them against her will in Dublin a similar Case has occurred and the Liberty of the poor girl preserved. At. Chatham a daring attempt is being made to capture children for Tho pests. The temporary escape and recapture of a nun by a Romish Bishop in i Staffordshire Are noticed in the London morning . Gilbert a romanism publisher craftily a altered a Luce s outlines of English history a so As to falsify facts and had succeeded in getting this school Book adopted in government schools without suspicion or. Collette in Able letters has exposed the fraud and the protestant Alliance has sent out ten thousand copies of the monthly letter calling attention to this subject. Teachers of youth have thus been put upon. Their guard. Protestant prizes Are to be competed for by Young a men off the working classes in june next under the presidency of the Alliance. Six lectures Are previously to be delivered to the candidates and three examiners of whom 1 have been asked to be one a Are to conduct their inquiry by written questions the first two Days and of the last u Viva Voce examination in presence of parties admitted by tickets. In the Tablet of february 28th judge Keogh is heartily abused for stating that a Down to a comparatively recent period priests and Bishops in the roman Catholic Church were allowed to marry and did some time ago Cardinal Wiseman pub Lisby a a tract called a a the Catholic use of the scripture a in which were words to this effect a a though the scriptures Are permitted a by the Romish Bishops a a yet we do not urge them nor recommend them to the a gentleman who saw the tract tried to get fifty copies from its publisher but after a delay of six weeks he is informed that a no More of the tracts Are to be published it being thought too bad for the cunning Cardinal finding that the tract has caused protestant a notice suppresses it. Me does not think it a a too bad for circulation a but simply that it is inexpedient to have it exposed. His hatred to the free use of the Bible is instinctive and inextinguishable. He is a True son of Mother Church and if he had the Power would bum both All the Blesin England and its More prominent advocates in one grand funeral Pue. A lord Derby in a recent philippic in the Honse of lords referred to his religious preferences.
