Christ cannot by ours and any Grace be a Christ the source All blessings we have had occasion to notice the celebrated sermons the late professor Butler Trinity College Dublin with much approval As the first and second series were issued font the press Parry amp Mcmil Latt Philadelphia. On the appearance the first series we gave an extract from that volume and we How sub join from the second series a to pm is Joist published the follow ing delightful passage. It is taken from the first Sermon in the volume entitled a a Christ the source All the.

I must again remind you to weigh Well the Force the expression a a is made unto let no Man persuade you that this can be satisfied by any Remote or indirect connexion with Christ it intimate is he himself is mane to us the thing he gives. As one with him we obtain the whole inheritance Grace and glory. The instant that we Are incorporated the mystical body which he is the head the instant in which we Are made living stones the Temple which he is Corner Stone the instant that we become branches that celestial Vine that instant we possess the seed the entire and All the life the Christiany a All his eternity is but the less or greater development the Christ he bears within around and upon him. Have spoken a Progress blessings it is a Progress to us but not in the gift Jesus Christ to receive him is to receive the germ every Blessing that is written in the Book god. One with Christ we must have Pardon for How could god love the head and babe the members one with Christ we must have Sanctification for How could he that is soundlessly pure re main one with tight that is wilfully unholy one with Christ we must have the prospective redemption the whole Man to glory for How could he abandon to the everlasting grave a portion his own being Sanchas he has deigned to make his Hap piness Complete ? thus in blending him self with us he hath done All things Well he has in that one unfathomable mystery accomplished All mysteries. He is a not the Declarer Only or the Means Only or the instrument Only he is a a made unto us a he hath himself become righteousness Sanctification redemption.

Your spiritual birth is a mystery your Fellowship with Christ is a mystery your daily graces Are a mystery your Triumph and death is a mystery your resurrection to glory will be but the. Consummation mystery. Mystery there must be wherever an infinite creator and his finite creature embrace and it is therefore your glory that you Are thus Robed and shrouded in mystery. Trust no one who would draw you Forth from it. It is the awful Shadow which eternity casts across time. Believe no one who would give you a religion without much and solemn mystery and above All when you think god in Christ what he has done and what he still does and what he will do be Well assured that in All his dealings there must be much you can never expect to fathom before which therefore you can but Bow in prostrate humility adoration knowing simply knowing that All he will do be can do snob is his Power All he can rightly do he will such is his love i these things Are a known in part a and therefore we can them but a a Prophesy in but there is no one who knows not what ought to be the practical working such a Faith.

Yet sometimes there is not Only writing but re writing this kind. And this is one the things that is hindering other pastoral work and is crushing the breasts and like me Oriter preach my in Many instances crushing the life out gods servants. In preparing a manuscript give yourself room by taking Roomy texts. Some preachers use the Bible As they feared they would finish it before they died. Take the word in a proper Quantity. Done to hesitate about natural divisions. A too simple too How often has that thought interfered you Oan see that i recommend expository preaching not that it is the easiest. It is laziness makes any the proper work the ministry too. Easy. But i deem this kind preaching bes for you and the people. When you write done to think or. So and so. Let your main care be to give Clear ideas gods truths. Think enough taste to avoid All Ordinary blunders express yourself English and you will gratify All who have any True taste. Too Many in writing put themselves in a false position. Pen in hand which is to them an enchanters Wand and with the thought a sink or swim live or die Here a for a Sermon a they Are in the straight jacket As Hall said he sometimes was the desire to do Fine preaching Todo a better than they they Are not the same men they Are when writing useful epistles to a Friend. Suppose them to be writing to one in a sick bed. A nonsense nonsense a says prof. B., a a let a Man always his by a a bests be meant hanging Over a table four Days the not being satisfied with a. Gospel truth when you have it distinctly in the mind but must try to say it better in a word the fixing up with the utmost exactness a manuscript we beg leave to demur. That is not the Best the lord requires his ministers to do. At the same time it must be admitted As there Are diversities gifts that what appears As a a fixing up a to others is Only the easy and natural labor a richly gifted mind. John Fosters mind could not be expected to express itself any other Way than it did and it was the thought that appeared. In How Many others is it Only style manner. There is no More extraordinary Talent in the ministry than in the two Ordinary professions. Perhaps not As much. God does not usually work by uncommon men but by Ordinary Talent Well applied. And we contend that Ordinary Talent is not Well applied by being mainly spent in fixing up manuscripts to the utmost Point exactness. The sum then the matter is this write and i will shortly give you my reasons for preferring that you should write comfortably cheerily and with pams taking to get out gods truth and this at the same time will a get the Way to secure improvement. To which All Young ministers should have an Eye. This will require study often hard but its hardness will be a different kind from what attends the getting up a Rhetor-1, argumentative poetical manuscript five letter sheets full a Deducible so and Jin Gables. A let All your manuscripts be written plainly largely to a brother who bad been writing lady hand and a a keeping his Finger on the place a when preaching i recommended the plan. He wrote with three Quarter Inch spaces Between lines and the next time i saw him he Baid a a i Tell you it makes a familiarize yourself with your paper and with its bold characters before you you can stand off three feet and deliberately shoot at a i will in my next speak a a the More excellent Way a and conclude what i have to say about preaching.

It a Quot Quot the benevolent and judicious Friend Christian education who for several years past has offered to the Board education the sum five thousand dollars annually for the support parochial schools has renewed his offer for the present year 1857. The following is the extract irom his letter relating to this subject a a i hereby confirm and continue my pro Faise $5,000 for 1867, on the same terms and conditions As before. I believe that god has a great work for us to do in this country and much depends under him on the Eresby Torian Church and the great Lover to use is the religion Christ especially by training the rising generation m the a such sentiments from an aged Follower Christ accompanied by such a donation As the evidence Zeal in the cause May Well attract the serious attention the ministers elders and members our congregations the simple questions Are 1. Whether the children the congregation have Access to a school founded on the principles and conducted in the Spir it religion ? 2. Whether measures ought to be taken to establish such a school As a matter Christian obligation and 3. Whether there is any better Way to secure the general Prosperity the religious character and permanence the school than by putting it under the care the Church the sum five thousand dollars will enable the Board to assist congregations who Aid in establishing schools. _ from Twenty five to one Hundred dollars needed May be expected by Church sessions applying for sub Odence. Pose for the treated in to your readers Anqus to mat another epistle. E one great both by writer your readers in est Ril Region that a a this pro sent time Kerful Field a to the for the display ,._ioe? they have a me suggest to them which the thought it before their minds you have been fading the we st As a in agricultural min is a a Ces and so it is. Ii st we have All these in be sources wealth Tivey Moke ready1 mw8viaehik5& to by the resort to wild oat banking As it is called which has proved so injurious to some states and to so Many communities and individuals people being willing for a time. To adopt any expedient however much under other circumstances they might condemn it rather than struggle along without any circulating medium and by the enormously High rates interest which throughout the West Are readily Given for the use Money. This last circumstance May perhaps be accounted for in part by. The facilities for speculation but it is in a great measure owing to the actual Scarcity ready Money and the actual necessities the Community. This has operated injuriously upon the Success Christ a cause in this Region and is still the prolific source much embarrassment and hindrance. I have been a resident the state Illinois for Mady years. I speak in this matter what i do know. Often have instances like the following Home to the knowledge your correspondent a a Farmer living in the Interior the state Quot takes his wheat to some Market where he knows that a portion the pay will to in. Money. He must go say to Chicago one Hundred and fifty Miles perhaps from his residence the roads Are bad his teams Are composed oxen the journey is consequently protracted several Days Are consumed in the City in effecting a Sale thirty seven acid a half cents is probably the highest Price and. One half this is a store pay a course at enormously High prices and when the Farmer returns Home he finds himself actually in debt having paid out All that he had received and still unable to Settle his hotel Bills As he draws near Home. A Friend who had been a hotel keeper for some years related to me but a Day or two since a Case in Point. A neighbor his had taken two loads Beauty not must be preparing by this sacrifice for a firmer and a More prosperous future. Yet this sacrifice might and should have been prevented. By this time your leaders will without doubt perceive Why i. Stated near the beginning my letter that a Field was at this time open Here for a display enlightened Christian philanthropy. And now i wish to speak with deliberation with emphasis and say that any Christian capitalist is in search a theatre operations where the ready Means which god has Given him May be expended in the Beer possible Way it pro during so far As he can judge the it Moat fruit in the present Aud giving Hope the most abundant Harvest in the future that Field is to be sought in the great Central Valley our Republic the Valley the Mississippi. Society is Here in a forming process. Everything is now to be moulded. The Church and the Christian institution learning Are the instruments under god to do the work. Let these be built. Let capital controlled by the Christian be expended for this object. Let it be Given where judiciously it can be and let it be loaned where it is not Best to make the gift Here to do the work which nothing else can do for the glory him whose is the Gold and Silver Earth. Churches May be aided and erected through the Church Extension committee Whigob Rev. H. J. Coe is the Active and efficient Secretary a Western Man extensively acquainted throughout the West knowing her wants and bring alive to her necessities. Already has this committee done much but the want Means has prevented that extensive usefulness which the friends Christ would rejoice to see it exercise. The legitimate work that committee course is to receive funds by donation and apply them to meet the necessities weak churches. Another plan for usefulness might be. Suggested. Let any i mused in Quot Fui wheat to Chicago and sold it for Cash at Twenty five cents per Bushel on his re. Turn being belated he was obliged to Stop at my friends tavern All nighty up a that he would Trust him until Het could get Home As a the proceeds his two loads had been completely expended. ,.f. Nor Are these isolated or extreme cases. They were but a few years ago to in almost every Community throughout this whole Region. True things Are better now and the resources the country Are being rapidly developed and in time capital will find a. Home Here and no inconvenience will be Felt such As is now experienced. How under the circumstances i have just detailed could men be asked to contribute to the build ing churches or the support the gospel True they could and did give something even then. Yet the least experienced can readily perceive what an influence such a state things would have upon the growth churches and educational enterprises. Though the condition things is improving to Are by no Means relieved As yet from our difficulties. A Church is to be built the friends Christ a cause see the necessity it. A Money is scarce but the Quot cause god should not suffer and they go to work. Where Money rates at two. And three per cent a Ino nth labor is High and material is expensive and despite All the Little flock can do they find themselves in debt before the a House is completed. Money must be borrowed the Lender knows no one where business is to he done he is impartial and must serve All alike and so charges Twenty five a per cent in Advance As annual interest. A a from this time Forward the throes and struggles that Little Church Are pitiable and continue until by some providential interference in their behalf they Are it is a matter great importance to the interests Fly buy Western Iopu afoul tufls8#is�?~itulillliiferests Tom let Jiejin located Quot to the Bent and Haritage riot Only in regard to tem a poral a bit web info go cd to re la Gionfr pro mag0?- i a a it amp Olivi w it a one great evil Felt in Tho West is the dispersed 1 do do scattered Stift a try an fam die a in a a they would Only Settle More Inda regroups and Kloap proximity to each tier their spiritual Privily a a Eswa in Ali by Ffitch he Van Cir do and a my Nistor might Supply a Niue larger nut Btu Erja iid it with More profit.

To remedy this evil and put Christian emigrants in Possession such knowledge As May be a Neo Ebsary pm to make a Wise selection not Only for their temporal i but also their spiritual interests i wish to Call attention to West Point and the surrounding country. We can presents Many privileges Here As any other Point. 1 we have Here a presbyterian i Church More than Ordinary strength for this country and enjoyment the regular ministrations the word. The gospel is Here preached in its fullness and purity every Sabbath by an aged but faithful minister Jesus Christ. West Point possesses More than Ordinary Edn cantonal privileges it. Sustains a.

It is also the location demote College which is now in successful operation and has a very respectable number students in at Tendance. This College is under the control a Board trustees who Are principally members or the presbyterian Church,.and its Constitution and charter require the professors to be members the presbyterian Church o a for the interests this institution,.we,wish to have a Strong presbyterian influence concentrated around it. We can offer emigrants educational privileges not inferior to those farther East. Presbyterians locating Here can qualify their sous and daughters for any station m life to which they May be called.

Bat i must defer the prosecution this subject for another letter. We hear some Tittle interest in some quarters upon the subject religion. A few have experienced a change it is hoped in the Baptist Church in Dixon Iii. And in some other communities we hear seriousness an attention to religious things which we have reason to Hope be Token the coming outpouring. May god give is throughout this world worshipping West such a revival that his name. May forever hereafter be cannot hear that the Board directors for the theological Seminary have been late doing anything. The committee for securing grounds and buildings for its use Are Busy and will i think,.he Able in afew Days to give a report to the Publio. Our congregational and methodist Brethren have each a theological institution in or near Chicago and ours be located there this City will be a sort theological Centre As itis now a Railroad and commercial Centre.

For the presbyterian Banner and advocate. Reply to a a / or. Editor a i read in your paper december 20th, a communication headed a in complying with the request permit me to say that any apparent harshness must be attributed to a desire to meet the Case briefly and to the unknown Friend. A. Your exclamations Are a a there is no mercy for me my Day Grace is past. do you know this ? did Jesus Ever Tell you so ? these Are either the suggestions a lying Devil or your own unbelieving heart. Rather than Trust either these you had better believe him who says a a him that Someth unto me i will in no Wise cast a a a Why have not the prayers pious parents for me been answered a they Are now being answered in the fact that you Are an anxious sinner instead a stupid unfeeling one. Go to Jesus like the woman Tyre telling him that you Are a dog and want the crumbs. My soul for yours he casts you off you Are the unwilling one. You stand contradicting him when he says a a i will in no Wise cast 1 that i had died in infancy then i might have been saved a amp a. Such wishes Are Idle. You Are no longer an infant.
