And our Bible dictionary Speaks or it As a a a marvelous change in the whole Frame of our moral being inspiring us with new views emotions and sentiments and effecting a Radical change a our hearts and that it is difficult to explain and even to understand except by experience and by its effects is taught by the Saviour in his conversation with Nico Demus about it for he says a the wind blow eth where it Listeth and thou Hearest the sound thereof but canst not Tell whence it Someth and whither it goeth so is every one that is born of the Iii 8. Yet it is a real change a great change a Radical change a Universal change in All the parts and faculties of the soul and an instantaneous change for As there can be no a Middle state Between life and death so the soul spiritually is either dead or alive and As soon so it is quickened or renewed it is alive and begins to act ont its new life so it is an instantaneous change. The it whole process of conversion is a work of time but the simple act of quickening regeneration in its proper sense is done at once the dead in sin Are made alive it is a change in the nature of the soul no tits physical but its moral Natur it we have a sinful nature regeneration is a change from sin to holiness so that from being wholly inclined to that which is evil we Are disposed and inclined to that which is Good. There is in this change the implantation of a holy principle or gracious habit so that we become fitted for the service of god and can take pleasure in Bis service and Delight in his Law and hold communion with Hin and whereas there was in us before nothing spiritually Good now that the heart is changed and a holy and gracious principle implanted there is in us some degree of holiness and we Are enabled by divine Grace to do those things which Are Well pleasing to god to walk in newness of life to grow in Grace and in meekness for heaven. We Are United to Christ and so Are made partakers of All the blessings of his salvation. May this be your Happy experience read Eph. Iii and in 2. Pet. I 1. John in.

The convocation which met so recently and gave some Promise of continuance the Bishop of Oxford proposing to discuss questions and come to conclusions which ought to be canons even though the state might refuse to make them so has been adjourned for a week and will be dissolved two Days hence without any business being done and so ends the latest attempt at the revival of what is Ihu the present Day the Symbol of High a Chure Hiam and which in the predominance Given to the upper House Oyer the lower in. The entire exclusion of an element corresponding to our presbyterian a ruling elder ship is essentially defective in its Constitution. Presbyterianism. With its synodical action in the United states and in Scotland at this very season of the year presents a spectacle very pleasing in contrast with Romish general councils and with a holy synods Quot in Ireland As Well Abs nth convocations so called in England ecclesiastical tyranny Over men s consciences accompanied by the suppression of truth both spoken and printed is the grand characteristic of All roman synods and while one has some sympathy with various Earnest and even evangelical men in England who would revive convocation in the sense of the Church making her own Laws yet the inevitable re suit of this Liberty by the state a convocation is now constituted would be to increase the influence of the Nestly part in the establishment. The United presbyterian Synod of Scotland has been holding its annual meeting at Edinburgh during the present month. Very interesting reports were Given As to quoted in this catechism a Han. Thirty canonical books of the old testament. It is. Not surprising therefore in View of such facts that the apocrypha should be More read in different parts of Germany than the holy scriptures.

The incident a recorded in the observer Isa follows a a a great Effort a or. Towsley known As a the children a Fri cd a has related the four Mhz ofic Identa with great effect when the religious feeling of a Hureh has been fluctuating Between a a retrograde and Onward movement. On the Banks of a Stream near a Small Village in Western new York a few enterprising men commenced the erection of a Gigantic Mill. The Frame work of the foundation extended Over the current. Rushing at a fearful distance below. The timbers above were adjusted and fastened in their / _ until the huge Skeleton was com plete excepting one enormous Bent whose even the heart of the master builder. Every Man in the Village and Vicinity was there to Aid in the perilous a a the a platform was dark with the crowd embracing every age and trembled Over the torrent beneath its Burden. The signal was Given up the Bent moved slowly till it reached what is called a a the Pinch a about Midway to its Elevation. Every muscle was strained but in vain. There was a dead pause for a moment and stillness which made the tumultuous throbbing of hearts audible. The builder mounted the second Story and looking Down with team shouted a a lift men or die 1�?� with a Wilder Energy they grasp the pikes for their lines but the Frame settles backward threatening to crush the despairing mass beneath. Just then five men appeared in sight a a help us a cried the builder from his dizzy height. They saw the danger at a glance and like cowards fled. The excitement had reached the Homes of these fathers and Brothers and now the tanks were lined with mothers and Sisters whose up to orned anxious faces and lifted hands asked imploringly for help. Down Down came the the Bent slowly As strength failed and All seemed Over. The builder whose nature was not particularly inclined to sympathy or pity was subdued with emotion and in a flood of tears turning to those women motionless with fear exclaimed a a wives if Yon would have husbands and Sisters if you would have rothers to night come and help us 1�?� the rash was an expression of the Strong impulses of woman a nature. Each was beside her father or brother heart beating to heart then a shout and one More struggle. The Bent moves another heave and it settles to its place a stroke of the Sledge and All is Safe. The heart and whole system had been strained to the utmost tension and As the excitement passed the whole throng sunk helpless and trembling before the exhaustion. Then followed the Joyful congratulations and affectionate salutations. Some were invalids for weeks in consequence of that wasting mental and physical Effort. A every one can make f the application. When the religious feeling of a Community the spiritual Bent is rising and for want of Union and strength settles Back it crushes not body but soul and separates in Prospect the nearest relations forever. And who talks of the enthusiasm. Of the scene we have described and condemns the weeping builder and excited women a and yet when half of a Church Are awake to their responsibility and spirits undying Are vibrating Between a glorious and a fearful destiny while some flee from their appropriate station and seek their own pleasure others of professed friends breathe word of caution and would stifle emotion to avoid the appearance of a false excitement or imprudent Zeal. And who May estimate the value of female prayer and Effort in the building of Zion and salvation of a family Circle a Ries of ministers All Over the Church to pay off debt on buildings and1 to do the work of missions at Home and abroad. In the West indies a great and Good work is being done among the negro population while at Calabar in Africa the Mission begun some fifteen years ago by the excellent sir. Wad Del has acquired such a stability that a presbytery has been formed there or. John Brown senior a professor of theology to whom last year a Large sum of Money was presented in the form of a testimonial by his friends and admirers and they Are Many invested the whole sum in order to found a fund for the aiding of the aged ministers securing to them after bearing the Burden and heat of the Day a Little pension on their closing years. At the late Synod sent in a donation of �500 to the increase of this fund which will continue i Trust to be a Blessing and a Comfort to Many of Scotland s veterans Long after the venerable grandson of the revered John Brown the commentator will have entered into is rest. There has been a document recently published with a Large number of influential signatures by members of the United and free churches indicating the desire of the parties signing it for a Union Between the free and United presbyterian. Churches and indicating in a series of propositions not Only the reasonableness but the practicability of the Union. I very much fear that this attempt at a Union in itself so desirable is premature. The free Church ministers who made such sacrifices at the disruption who Laid their a a claim of rights a on the table of the Queens commissioner by the hands of the Illus Troub Welsh exactly four teen years a go and then went Forth Chalmers Welsh Mcfarland Cunningham. Candlish Buchanan and More than 400 More these men cannot lightly abandon the principles in whole and entire on which their a a exodus a was made. The old seeders Ebenezer Erskine and his followers warred with patronage not with the principle of an establishment. The free Church now practically endorses these principles and has suffered for them presbyterians Are a Volu notaries a in the conventional us of that term. I am not arguing the differences at All but Only stating them. At a recent meeting of the free Church presbytery at Glasgow there were complaints made that the ministers had not been consulted by the laity in this movement still the document is a weighty and important one and will tend to Lead to dose Intercourse Exchange of pulpits &b., which will prepare the Way i Trust for a final incorporation. I should have previously mentioned that the United presbyterian Synod take a warm interest in the evangelical movement going on under the Ampie of i the a a evangelical society a of Belgium and in the operations of the free reformed Church i France at the head of which is the venerable and excellent Frederic Monod of1 Paris to each of these a presbyterian missionary movements donations or collections Are annually Given. And verily there is much need that the continent should receive the prayerful and practical attention of All christians. The Sabbath question even in protestant countries is still practically unsolved. At Berlin recently where Prince Napoleon has been on a visit there was a grand banquet at the Palace on a sunday afternoon and an opera in the evening 1 Are one Hundred _ testament to the gods Bible plan a the of the first prize written excellent i ont that the most main sympathies Man. Next Carmean evangelical Rector of Spitalfields who exhibited to the interest and Surprise of the meeting a set of pick locks which a professed i ii had after his conversion Given to a missionary desiring to be free from those instruments the very sight of which were a temptation to him to resume is old habits. Tho visits last year paid by the Mission., Aries were More than a million and a half the number of tracts distributed upwards of two millions 2,270-open air addresses were delivered at which was 226,668. As to our tract society it Noble anniversary. A new feature was introduced this year namely the preaching a for the first time of anniversary sermons the first by the Bishop of Rel Perth a land a Man of great Wisdom and piety who delivered , the apocryphal question is also unsolved in Germany. One of the Strong holds of the apocrypha in Germany is to be found in the catechisms. Thus in Tho protestant principality of Coburg in reply to the question a a How do we know that there is Agod a we find a answer a from the holy scriptures Sirack. Xii 30�?37�?� thus declaring the apocrypha to be the word of god. In the protestant catechism until very lately used in rhenish Bavaria we find ten of the prophetical books of the old testament not once quoted in it three Only twice and one once even Isaiah and Jeremiah Are Only quoted one sixth part by often As the apocryphal Book Sirach. The first eighteen books of the old testament Are quoted forty eight times the four greater and twelve minor prophets thirty six times but Sirach ninety five times. The books of Wisdom and Tobias Are oftener that a a the unconditional rejection of the apocrypha is the practical denial in a the Faith of a holy Church and by the Rev or. Stier who. Says the Ain the be apocrypha and that reckons on the Readin to both these the anti Dean Keerl and Able replies. A painful fact Coin radians in Germany will _ Are evangelical Are am Fig the defenders of the apocrypha 1 Sevy Fol Bible societies and conferences of ministers have recently moved in the right direction and what used to be sneered at a Rio a a Mere English scottish question a isrow becoming it egg Toast important in itself in its two fold Desti figs Ythi aspect.

Marriot of Basle earnestly solicits help to carry on his crusade against the apocrypha and Rich american christians might do Well to Send him donations. Without entering1 minutely into figures and statistics i shall now refer to sole of the larger of those a a May meetings a which i have not previously noticed. It is impossible for a resident in London particularly with a nine years familiarity with it Buch scenes and constant pastoral and Public duties pressing on mme to attend of a Quot these great gathering i have however been present this year at some of the most prominent including the Bible the. A City Mission the tract and the London. Missionary societies. The distinctive features of the Bisle society i formerly noticed in connexion with the Noble catholicity of feeling displayed in the speech of the Bishop of London of whom i in addition to what i communicated in my last As to his dealings with trac arianism that b e preached lately a most faithful Sermon at st. Barna Bas in the presence of Liddel and his congregation a on the significant text neither circumcision nor uni cum Cisin Avail eth any his visit also to st. Barnabas brought out the popish spirit cherished by symbols and crosses and Stone altars and his own quiet determination and decided protestantism. When the crosses were removed in his presence two of the Beadles or attendants burst into tears whereupon or. Tait tamed to re marked that there could not be a stronger proof of the objectionable effect of such things As they became idols to. . When the Stone altar was ordered to be taken away it was proposed instead that wooden table should be it. But the Bishop was firm. A a what Are we to do with it ? is Titto he buried a a a Well a was the reply a a perhaps to amp to May be the Best Way of disposing of it. At the City Mission annual meeting the Revenue about �30,000, and the agents 389�?lord g. Russel a brother of lord it John was. The first speaker and Baptist Noel the second. The latter,.referring to the Progress of society a religions sense and the increased a interest taken a by the higher classes in vital christianity observed1 a it was Only the other Day i met with two1 Young men and one Man in Middle use one of these was heir of a Marquis and taught a visage class in a Sabbath school the other was a baronet who had extensive property and who often went in the train from his place in parliament on saturday studying his lessons for his Sabbath school. The next Day. I know also , who had been almost run Oyer in the streets of London when distributing religious tracts and who was apprehended in the Tuil series for delivering such tracts among the officials in the Palace although As soon As he was known he was released. A a a a there was another class respecting whom we have reason to rejoice., it had not often happened since the reformation that four Bishops almost together Quot had been appointed who in spirit a and temper and devoted Ness were just what Cranmer Latimer and Ridley were a after or. Noel Rose or. Pelham the Bishop designate of Norwich to express his admiration of the City Mission and his personal obligation to it As a parochial clergy or. Raffles of Liverpool who preached in 8urrey Chapel. The Public meeting was very Large and was presided Over by a distinguished irishman Ith Eright Hon. Joseph Napier m p for Dublin University. Among the speakers were the Dean of Carlisle or. Close who denounced the prayer offered no by the Bishop of Manchester at the opening of a a the Art treasure exhibition a now a great attraction at Manchester As fit Only for a deist or a soc Ian As the name of Christ was not in it. It turns out however that the offender was the times newspaper which Only gave part of the prayer As if it were the whole and omitted another part which was quite evangelical and scriptural. A another speaker was a rising and popular Baptist minister in London or. La dells who referred to the unfair portraits drawn a by Thackeray and dickens., not. Naming them of religious men whom they represented a a either As fools or knaves a a. The Rev. Norman Mcleod of Glasgow,.told of. The crowds of men and women who Dunn the a past Winter had filled his Church once a week in their work Day clothes none others being admitted and avowed his belief that the literature of the imagination tales &c., not professedly religious might be made exceedingly useful. This i also firmly it has not yet come to pass however that our men of Genius have a a confessed Christ a in their works or twined a Garland of Honor for his brows. Still i believe that the tendency is that Way. The benevolent income of the tract society for the year was �7,507, the Grants �9,684 total receipts for sales &c., �91,466. The issues from1 the depositories at Home and abroad were upwards of thirty three millions daring the year being an increase of nearly two millions and a half. The London missionary anniversary presented a scene of the most animated interest. Never did i see Exeter Hall More crowded. The occasion was a great one. Livingstone who has kept close at his work of preparing his travels and has not Yeen a a ionizing a was to appear and As lord Robert Grosvenor m. P., stepped on the platform immediately followed by the great african missionary and also by or. Ellis just returned from a missionary visit to Madagascar the enthusiasm was very great. Ellis first told How in spite of martyrdom numerous As in the worst Quot Days of Romish burnings in and the rehearsal of which from Public documents seemed almost like chapter from Foxe s Book of martyrs a Church numbering a Many thousands a full of love still exists at Madagascar. The Queen has ceased a to. A persecute a and lavished attentions on or. Ellis. The word a of god which had been printed years ago instill a the Island and has kept truth alive the heir to the throne is a Christian,.and<thus, while a a the Bush a has a a burned with a fire a yet a a it is not consumed.�?�. A. At last Rose Livingstone and. Men and women instantly sprung to their feet to Hail and Welcome Hipa. I described formerly is appearance and also is a reception at freemasons Hall when science bowed Down publicly for the first. Time at a despised missionary a feet and thus did homage to christianity As the great civilized explorer and Bene actress of the world. But this i was the constituency of the London missionary society,1 hailing their own missionary. His speech like himself was simple direct and practical. It gave a Clear and rapid sketch of what he had discovered and what he proposed and concluded by an a peal for prayer for myself and the band who Are to de company him to found a Mission in the very heart of Africa amid the teeming1 population who have been Dikeov Rcd in a Region where All was hitherto supposed to be a do Sert that a echoed the cry of the jackal or the Roar of beasts of prey. J. W. A s. Lord Napier a speech at new York exactly and eloquently a expressed British feeling toward �?~america1. The treaty of peace with Persia has been ratified the Pope is making a tour throughout the states1 of the Church and is to be absent from Rome for some time. The emperor of Austria is in Hungary and has issued a partial amnesty. From Tho now York observer. Power of consistency. An eminent divine of this City relates the following anecdote from his own history a when quite a youth he Early made a profession of religion and soon after entered upon his studies within View of eventually entering the ministry. During this period an invitation was tendered him. By one of is wealthy townsmen to attend a Large party to be Given at his House. Having at the Start of a Christian life,1 determined to ascribe with due. Charity a the Best of motives to the conduct of others no impropriety was Ever imagined and the invitation was accepted. When the evening arrived he repaired to the House of his Friend and after spending a Short time with some of his Fel Low guests was a accosted by his Host who after a slight conversation said a a it ,. Come into the other room and play a game it i 1 v _ ,.p1 session and conscientiously a desirous to do1 right under All circumstances he was both mortified and confused at the proposal and so doubtful As to the proper course of conduct to pursue that he gave his Friend a look of astonishment turned upon his Heel went to the Hall took his hat and left the House. When collected a a his thoughts doubts arose in is mind As to the Wisdom of his his Pillow that night yielded1 him rest his conscience also assured rim that though the1 world might accuse him of Pharisaic al austerity he had escaped a consequences beyond his Power to estimate. The next Day he received a note from the gentleman at whose House he visited. The evening previous apologizing for having1 mortified and grieved him assuring my of is Moat sincere Friend sep and now High esteem and stated that after his sudden departure he took occasion to apologize to the company explaining the cause of is absence. This person was then an unbeliever but subsequently embraced Hope i Christ and Ever after a Strong Friendship existed Between them. He. Is now. Residing in a Western City a Man of wealth and influence. The Young Man is now at the head of one of our most useful benevolent institutions and often receives from his Friend donations to assist the Good work he represents and is also sometimes reminded of the circumstance related., a let your Light so Shine before men that they May see your Good works and glorify your father which is1� c. A. B. Parental vanity. Another cause of the growing disobedience and the want of filial reverence in the midst of us is parental vanity. I mean that feeling a which prompts parents to make a display of their children to show off their dawning intelligence or wit or excellence by saying things to draw them out or by repeating in their presence what they May have said ally this is in itself vary trivial it is but the natural innocent outflow of a a , Andye nevertheless Oasa powerful effect in moulding the temper and bearing and character of children it tends most inevitably to make them flippant and a conceited and arrogant and self willed. And parents who have found great amusement in these displays do discover when it is too late that they have erred a they fed that the children take advantage of their accredited cleverness they become impertinent and How can they be checked at fourteen or fifteen for what was thought very interesting when they were four or five ? Many persons you know say that it is the misery of Man to learn Only when it is too late to profit by it that the lessons of experience Are really understood Only when expo-1 Rienche is at an end. And indeed this would seem to be Trae of the great practical theme now in hand. When our children a Are grown then seeing the mistakes we have1 made either on the one hand or the other either in exacting too much or too. Little either in make Gour children pert by admiring them too Mach or hurting their feelings by taking scarcely any notice of them at ally seeing this we think we should act differently a could we live again through the. Years a Umoh Are gone. we might. We might indeed avoid some particular mistakes and above All this one of showing a Iff the cleverness of our children we Doit thoughtlessly to please out friends perhaps i to amuse ourselves forgetting that the a pleasures we derive Are really serving to.

Iannot Tell you How strongly i feel on this subject Christ is the Light of the world. How does the poor dying sinner need to turn is eyes to this Light a he is entering the dark Valley of the Shadow of death.-. He came to seek Sandsto save that which was lost. How 1 does the awakened sinner feel when he a is just taking leave of All earthly things and How consoling to be reminded of an almighty a most merciful. Saviour who,.came to find and save Hin.

How precious then to him will that blood be which cleanses from All sin he needs to be reminded of these things in is dying hour forms memory is often weak and his mind confused and satan comes with All his subtlety to cast is fiery darts and annoy him at that dreadful moment.
