For the presbyterian Banner and advocate. Evidences of with Christ. Therefore if any Man be in Christ he is a new creature old things Are passed away behold All things Are become new.�?2. Cor. V 17. dear Friend begin where i left off. There is then As we have seen a vital Union with Christ As Well As a Legal Union the Legal Union is from eternity the vital Union takes place Here in this world when we Are born again and receive Jesus Christ by Faith. This vital Union is formed in regeneration hence its connexion with the evidences of regeneration for we Are United to Christ by the work of the spirit in effectual calling. Then we believe and become personally interested in the covenant of Grace this covenant is then made with us and the Seal of it May then be applied to a and to our offspring As it was to Abraham and his seed for the covenant with Abraham was the same As that which is made with every believer for Abraham believed and was justified and he received circumcision As the Seal of the righteousness of Faith or justification his own personal . In 6�?12. Hence believers Are the children of Abraham and if be be Christ a then Are be Abrahams seed and heirs according to the Promise Gal. Iii -.7�?29. _ now All whether jews or gentiles All Yho were included in the covenant of Grace Between the father and the Sony All of whom jeans Christ is the Legal head and substitute shall be effectually called by the spirit and become United to Christ by Faith in time and be saved. To these As we have seen Christ had special reference in his atonement for they were chosen in my and Given to him by the father and hence while his atonement is sufficient for All and infinite in value it was from eternity designed to he applied to the elect the chosen seed and so it is definite in its design. It shall he applied to those for whom it was specially made in whose Stead the redeemer died. It not merely renders salvation possible and opens the Way for the full and free offer of eternal life to All who hear the gospel but it secures the salvation of the chosen seed it secures their vital Union with Christ because there is already a Legal Union with him and in the whole transaction Jesus Christ is their representative and substitute. Thus he says i have loved thee with an everlasting love therefore with Loving kindness have i drawn Jer. Xxxi 3. The vital Union is the result of the Legal Union just As regeneration is the carrying out of the purpose of election. This vital Union is the subject of Paul a remark in 2. Cor. V 17 if any Man be in Christ he is a new creature. Without this vital Union there is no salvation and it is inseparable from the new creation inseparable from the new birth and be must he born again a John Iii 7. Hence we have Here the result of this spiritual death. If any Man be in Christ 1 vitally United to him he is of necessity a new creature for there is and can be no vital Union with Christ without regeneration. This Union is one of the first effects of re generation it is formed and consummated in regeneration it is its inseparable adjunct and where the Union exists there regeneration has been experienced. The soul that is a United to Christ is born again. Hence we have Here also the Ovi Denees of this change As there is a new creation where there is vital Union with Christ so this will be manifested in the whole spirit and conduct of the Man As he is a new creature so old things Are passed away behold All things Are become new.�?2. Cor. V 17. Scott in his commentary says a a he is a new creation of god. By spiritual illumination and its invariable a effects a new judgment has been produced with new inclinations new affections and purposes from which new words and actions must proceed. Thus old desires intentions expectations Connexions and satisfactions passed away and were superseded for behold by the marvelous operation of divine Grace All things were become new so that the Christian experienced new Hopes and fears Joys and sorrows desires and aversions he Learned to speak a new language to choose new companions to aet from new motives to aim at new objects and to attend to new employments. Every thing was now cast into a new Mould received a new impression and took a new direction from the knowledge of god from Faith in Christ and love to him from humiliation for sin and hatred of it and from the desire of holiness and the Hope of eternal regeneration is known by its effects and fruits vitally United to Christ the branches of the True Vine Are known by their fruitfulness a Matt Vii 15�?20 John by. And hence Here is the Universal extent and application of this test if buy Man any Man any where if any Man be in Christ he is a new creature and it will he seen in his life the new creature will live a new life old things Are passed away behold All things Are become new.�?2. Cor. V 17. This introduces an important subject the evidences of regeneration Auu to this it May be Well for us now to direct our attention. This i shall do in the present series of letters and preparatory to this i have spoken of both our Legal and our vital Union to Christ. Great is the mystery of godliness.�?-1. Tim. Iii 16. There Are Many things which we can Deiber explain nor understand. Among these May be the nature of regeneration in Wimch we a re United to Christ As seems to he implied in the language of Christ to Nicodemus. The wind blow eth where it Listeth and thou heart st the sound thereof hut canst not Tell whence it cometh and whither it goeth so is every one that is born of the Iii 8. Yet it is desirable to know something of its nature that we May the better understand its evidences. Hence it May be Well to review what has been said in former letters and thus present a Brief summary of regeneration itself preparatory to a consideration of the evidences of it this i May attempt in my next and then proceed to consider the evidences of regeneration. But for the present i have written enough and so i close with kind wishes for your welfare. Yours truly calculation any one can see is a to tenon sense business calculation and if it is not Correct the error Eun Sissin its tailing below the facts. I might have included in the above calculation the capital brought by a second person who after two years entered into a co partnership with the first. This capital calculating it As we that of the first member of the firm would increase the original Stock $1,500, og�$2,000 More and this additional capital has added fully in a corresponding degree to the Prosperity of the business. But lest some one May insist that one person might conduct the business As successfully As two or that the expenses of the firm Are increased in a proportion above its efficiency we will pass this particular Bye in our inventory of the original Stock. I shall leave for another occasion some figures on the profits of this business and the expenses necessary to it. Beta. For the presbyterian Banner and advocate. Door Yards and Church Yards. There is a very general neglect both in City and country of door Yards and churchyards. Passing among the Beautiful Hills of our Western Pennsylvania than which there Are few Hills More Beautiful there is nothing More common than to see a Large and comfortable farm House rising out of a wilderness of weeds surrounded by broken fences with no evidence that Ever the hand of taste had stretched a line there or planted a Flower. This is not As it should be. A Large portion of our population have yet to learn the refining nay even moralizing influence of Trees and Flowers. I have heard the tidy Hoube wife intercede with tears in her eyes for a Little spot to Plant Flowers in and when i saw the much More precious Flowers Blooming by her Side the a Olive plants of the household whose opening buds were her Especial care i thought i could guess the impulse which started the tear. But the Good Farmer with a Sharp Eye to the Money profits of his labor a would rather Plant potatoes.�?�. Little does he think How much a love for Flowers Early implanted in the hearts of his children May have to do in a a in keeping those hearts clean from baser _ that is one aspect of things. We see the same thing repeated in our Church Yards. Our Church Yards will be very much As our door Yards. How sad to see these hallowed spots whose dear old associations will follow us through life and All of which might he Beautiful associations lending a fresher Charm to religion even surrounded with rubbish overrun with weeds and destitute offence or Gate to protect from unhallowed intrusion. Yet there is no More common spectacle in our country parishes even where the wealth of the people renders the neglect quite unpardonable. A Sabbath in the country How refreshing it is a Church Yard in the count Aye How Beautiful it might he. The following extracts taken from Amer to vital Union with Christ or its i adjunct a new creation renewed by the spirit born again if any Man he in Christ United to him vitally he is a new creature. �?2. Cor. V 17. He was dead before he is alive now and walks in newness of life. Christ is our life and where there is a vital Union with him there is life of course for there can not be dead branches in that living Vine. By nature we Are dead being United to Christ by Faith and the indwelling of his spirit we have life and Are new creatures. There can he no living Union with Christ where there is hot a new heart a new nature generation by the Power of the holy ghost for till Toen death reigns All is dead for tie presbyterian Banner and advocate. Breaching viewed in a business Light Christ said a a my kingdom is not of this world a yet he came to establish it in the world and while it remains in the world it is so much under the worlds influence that even its friends often see it with the greatest clearness from a stand Point in the world outside of the kingdom itself. Many men can estimate the value of a thing Only by what it costs in dollars and cents and when going into business they base their estimate of the expected profits upon the capital Stock invested. So much capital ought to secure such a. Amount of profit. Allow me to look at the gospel ministry by this Rule. Allow me to present a few facts and figures showing the capital invested and the profits in dollars and cents arising from it and i do it not intimating that the value of the preached gospel to the human family can be calculated by such a Standard but because the reasoning Powers of some can he reached through the pocket alone. I can accomplish my purpose Best by selecting a particular Case not a fancy one either but a real one and one which to my mind is a very fair average a a a knew a Man in Christ about fourteen years ago a who determined by divine assistance to devote himself to preaching the gospel. As a business Man would say a the concluded to make an investment in the business of he was then teaching and with encouraging Success. Situations of Promise in other pursuits were also open to him hut he passed them by. In the Spring of 1844, he commenced a course of study regularly and in nine years afterwards he was licensed to preach. He then entered into business proper. Now the amount expended in fitting himself for business was his Stock invested in it. This is made up of different particulars first the amount of actual expenditure. This for tuition Board travelling lot eng &c., at a very Low estimate amounted to $150.00 a year for nine years $1,350 00. The amount which he might have Laid up each year out of his earnings had he continued teaching or entered some other business for which he was then qualified is also $150.00 a year for nine years $1,350.00. Add to this the interest of this annual investment. Suppose at the 1 end of each year he bad put the $300.00 the $150.00 expended and the $150.00 saved out at interest by the end of the 19th year this interest would have amounted to $648.00 at six per cent. Add to these sums his Library Worth say $152.00, and the several particulars will be As follows amount expended $1,350.00 amount which might have been earned and saved 1,350.00 interest 648.00 Library a 152.00 from our London correspondent.

The protestant Alliance gives As i formerly intimated annual prizes to Young men for the Best answering on a the popish controversy. I have Bee recently engaged at the request of the committee and in con Cert with two episcopal str Gymer in conducting the examination of the can clip lest perhaps a of the Mode might be useful As furnishing suggestions for similar examinations. In. The l Meed states where As Wajih ourselves. Romanism is so Active and malignant. The exam Nat on began by i ring before the candidates sixteen in number a series of written questions. They were furnished with pen Ink and paper but were denied the use of Hooks for reference. The first portion of the questions bore on the supremacy of the Pope the second on Romish idolatry and the last on the Pardon of sin. It was required that the historical and literary references should be accurate that quotations from. Scripture should be exactly in its own words and it was also intimated that Correct spelling and Gram mar would Bear on the ultimate decision of the examiners. For two hours the candidates collected in one room continued to write from 8 p. A to 10 p. M., when the papers were collected a and forwarded by the Secretary to each of the examiners. About a week after a second series of printed questions More be arcing and touching i purposes to Subserve and advance., on More recondite Points of the controversy were submitted. We found when the written answers came Back that three candidates had retired from the Field of Competition from a separate View by the exam Iners of the two series of answers they affixed a number of Marks corresponding to the respective merits of the candidates. Finally came a Viva Voce examination. The candidates and a number of their friends met in a Large room and each examiner in succession questioned the parties on the More knotty Points of dispute and brought out the capabilities of the candidates As to actual and Public combat with Romish gladiators. The result of the whole was very satisfactory. Four prizes of �10, �5, �2 and �2, raspe Stively were Given to. As Many candidates while to six others certificates of Merit were awarded. It is worthy of notice that one of the a a certificate of Merit a men last year was the Man this year Thomas of those Crews of the mail which Stop there for Coaling. A a Gas Plain in one of the islands a minister of a adv Church of Scotland gives a harrowing Arfi count of the scenes on Board after leaving that1 Island and strongly advises its abandonment As a Coaling station.

I the death of Beranger the French song writer Jacl poet took a place last week at the �gej���7 years. His popularity was wonderful. Arra the Republican party taking heart froth the election of and other leaders for Paris,1 resolved to1 make Ber Nger s f men to e Cha on of one of those popular demo str turns whu.1 Ere. Now has overthrown a dynasty and deluged a Tapfar i Odd Bat the com Hong. Emperor was awake to to licit i Altean d Ere the breath was Well out of the poets body out comes an article in the official Moni eur announcing the death of reran Ger and the intention of the emperor to defray the Cost of his funeral out of he privy purse. But with this was a hint that the government was aware of the intentions of the malcontents and would not permit any but persons officially invited to form part of the funeral cortege. And so guarded by soldiery the poet of the people who liked not tyranny was borne to Pere be chaise while multitudes crowded after or gazed on from windows and House tops. The affected lamentations of the emperor Over the loss of Beranger fill ones mind with contempt for the transparent hollowness and hypocrisy of the Man. But As a piece of Crafty policy and As affording a glimpse into the perils of his position the incident is worthy of notice. Who shall predict the future and the Fate of Louis Napoleon ? he has played a great part for some years in Europe and hitherto has Home a a charmed Lile Quot because that Providence has its own. Total $3,500.00 this then was the actual capital with which he commenced business four years ago last april a capital with which a Young Man might enter into and pursue a a prosperous business in most pursuits this Ticle on gardens in the religious Magazine and Independent journal for june Are so much to the Point i would like to see them in your widely circulated paper. Speaking of door Yards the writer says a count the Man who adorns his Little lot a Benefactor. In the narrow Home of poverty i have seen the Rich Flower in the window growing from a cracked and useless Teapot. I would answer for the heart that planted it. As a traveler the presence of a Flower has always encouraged me to ask a hospitality and i remember when a Young Man and compelled to look up the straggling members of a Parish i always took heart when i saw a Flower in the window or a bean trained by the Side of the door. Involuntarily i judge of men inside the House by the look of things without. A neat sidewalk a Well kept Yard where there is no room for More say More of the occupant than i could gain by an hours talk. As the Garden grown Over with thorns betrays the sluggard so should i expect a heart sluggish in its charities and its humanity where i found no care for nature at the door. Men who scorn every thing simple and place a value Only on what the world Stamps May smile but there is nothing which will say More for or against Aman than his attention to or neglect of the Little spot which he has. Every Man in the care Only of his a a Yard May he a Benefactor to every one who passes his gate.�?�. Again he says think too that our churches Shoutd see to it that the spot of ground on which they stand should be properly adorned and kept in order. We read and hear a great Deal of English Hureh Yards and they Are not Mere places in which to Bury the dead but have paths and Trees and Solitude All adding much to the Sharac ter of the place of More Beautiful than the prints we see of English Rural churches Here we put churches on the. Top of Hills on Bleak commons in Little pinched no spaces on the Corners of streets and leave them Hare and unadorned. No nation on the Globe so generally neglect their places of worship As do we. The Mohammedan is greatly before us. I can remember a few Church Yards in our country towns their Beauty always makes one glad and i venture to say no Man Ever sees them without being pleasantly and profitably impressed by them. Sometimes in the City amid a wilderness of Brick you come across a Little Patch of grass carefully trimmed a hedge or a few Trees and your Steps Are arrested and you inwardly confess How greatly so Small a thing adds to the appearance of you feel How appropriate that that which is holy ground should be fenced in and made separate from All other to Bingo. It seems to breathe a sort of Sabbath sweetness and whisper its Benison Over the noise and struggle of the. City a Busy life. A Church should stand in a Garden. That which is without should he inviting and elevating. Or if it cannot he in a Garden its Yard should show care and ii lure. It might be Laid out and planted Blossom with Flowers and resound with the song of Birds. It might look neat and trim and inviting a proper Portal to the House of these extracts Are worthy a serious thought. We have refused very much when we have refused to consecrate our taste and our love of the Beautiful to the worship of god. A h years of age and an apprentice or assistant in apothecary s Hall London. His accurate quotations from Church councils creeds and other Standard authorities so impressed the examiners that the propriety or is becoming a minister of Christ in the Church of England of which he is a member was suggested to him. But it appears that he is equally eminent in chemistry and other Kindred studies and that is position and prospects Are Likely to he shaped accordingly. I would respectfully suggest to protestant associations in the United states whether a similar plan giving it due publicity might not he found most useful in raising up from among Young men and these a of students of colleges Well trained champions for the Faith who would be ready any where and every where to put to shame the Subtle and plausible emissaries of Rome. From India there is no further news. But sinister rumours Are abroad about revolts in the Madras presidency and the mail sex can st not joke an enemy i into a Friend but thou Inayo st a Friend into an enemy. Peeled three Days hence is looked for with intense anxiety. The government continues its Active preparations to dispatch troops and quite a revolution in the military arrangements of India is i believe resolved on. Whereas hitherto the proportion of european and English troops has been Small As compared with the native soldiers now we shall have it is said one european regiment to two regiments of sepoy. Besides this a great demonstration must he made to impress the Oriental mind in order to consolidate our Power and to prepare we Trust for mighty and beneficial changes in the grand future that Providence reserves for the teeming myriads of Hin Doostan. A party debate on India will com1 Menee on monday evening next the 27th inst., in which the opposition will do All they can to damage the ministry and i presume also not hesitating to attack the governor general lord Canning himself demanding his dismissal on the ground that he subscribed to missionary objects in his official capacity. To this lord Ellenborough has already referred offensively in the House of Peers. There seems no doubt that the greased cartridges had something to do with the Mutiny and that a clique of a a red tape a officials at Calcutta continued to Send out the cartridges after complaints had been made. But the causes of the outbreak have been multifarious and a crisis Long predicted and feared by the thoughtful has arrived pregnant with vast consequences. The Bombay times predicts that the struggle will turn on the destruction or preservation of caste. If the Issue should be its practical abolition what a mighty Barrier to christianity would be swept away. The Queen has been reviewing troops for two successive Days at the Aldershot Camp in Surry. Many of these soldiers go to India doubtless to return no More. The climate coupled with intemperance makes sad havoc with european troops and the new policy will entail constant drafts from England for years to come to fill up the diminishing ranks from disease alone to say nothing of the collisions of War should such occur. China however would he even More fatal As the scene of a Campaign. As to Garrison occupation the West indies have Long had a bad pre Eminence in reference to the mortality of troops although there is recently a great improvement. A great outcry is made about the frightful mortality from yellow fever at the Island we have an arrival since this letter was written and give some details in other . At the close of the proceedings of the Irish general Assembly the sending of a deputation to Canada to via to the presbyterian churches and emigrants there was warmly advocated. It was suggested at the same time that any deputation going thither should also visit the United states for the Home missions of the Irish Church. The generous reception Wimch was Given to the Rev. Or. Dill and the Rev. Jonathan Simpson pleading in its behalf some years ago is not forgotten in Ulster and it was affirmed with apparent Justice that methodist deputations from Ireland had received Money which otherwise would have been gladly Given by presbyterians to their own Brethren there. Or. Cooke stated that be was ready to go to the United states with or. Edgar if called on that old As he was he was stronger that Young men who required a haunting car while he could walk fourteen Miles at a stretch. But he would Goc Rahly Quot upon one conditions that Terii should be no Fetters placed on him As to where he should go or not go. The reference no doubt was to the slavery question and the old cry raised against or. Cunningham and the free Church deputation of a a Send Back the two men so eminent As Doctora Cook and Edgar would be received i doubt not with open arms in America and the cause to be pleaded by them is a Noble one. The times correspondent at Berlin reports that Active preparations Are being made in Prospect of the evangelical Alliance meeting in september. Large sums of Money Are being collected for the convocation of several thousands is expected. The High lutherans Are guilty of such misrepresentations As to the designs of the Alliance that Public lectures Are about to be delivered in Berlin to counteract their malignant statements. Private families will receive foreign guests and accommodation in this Way or otherwise will he provided As far As possible. I have just received a circular to that effect and inviting my presence As one of those who signed the original address expressive of sympathy and interest in the contemplated gathering. The Rev. Or. Baird has arrived in London As one of the americans accompanied by the Rev. D. Y. Mclean d.d., late president of Lafayette College. The expulsion of political refugees from England by government author Ity is once More agitated. Russia it is said has sent a formal remonstrance on the subject and France is reported to be pressing on in the same direction especially on account of the discovery of a recent plot to assassinate the emperor. The reported at tempt on his life to which i alluded in my last does not seem to have been really made but had not warning been Given in time it was intended say the French papers to take up the rails of the line on which he travelled from Paris to pro Mieres. Three parties Are arrested and Are said to Haye confessed their guilty intention to Mil the emperor. Ledra Rollin the Quad do Leader of the red republicans and m. Mazzini Are also charged with being in the plot. Being absent however and Unar rested they will be tried and condemned by default and thus. It is expected that England must Send them from her shores. Of Mazzini a willingness to embrace assassination in is plans we have had sufficient proofs but the daily Telegraph of London denies a you authority a that a Rollin knew any thing of the proposal otherwise than that when some week s ago a Man called of the Patriot offering to shoot Louis Napoleon a the was kicked Down the abuse of the Asylum afforded to refugees will hardly Lead to its abolition. If any English government ventured to propose it the nation would make them speedily repent of their attempted submission to the dictation of a despot like Napoleon who May when it suits himself become our deadliest foe. At the same time a a freedoms Battle a May not be fought by assassination which on political ground will not hear apology or be aught else but foul murder in the sight of him who says a a vengeance is to have had any sympathy with doctor Davidson a sentiments. The aberration of the latter is greatly to be deplored and if it he followed by the resignation of the former it will be followed by serious injury to the College. The number of students there has never been Large. The departure of the agamemnon and Niagara for the laying Down of the 4 Hanzic Telegraph a Vul is fixed for next week. Contrary to the original intention the two vessels will not separate each taking us course toward the coast East and West from a mid Ocean position but will remain near each other All the Way.
