And this is or reason for its necessity there in no s for heaven without it a Reforma of life and manners is not sufficient outward reformation May leave the untouched. A moral life is not Suffi for external morality is not holiness May be moral acts where there is no Ai Good less. Morality is not religion to men Are but half the Law there so duties to god and god looks upon Long As the heart is no tall is wrong. Conviction of sin is not Lent for there May be conviction where is no conversion. The performance of Ous duties is not sufficient these can con mend us to god they cannot Pur his favor Flor can they of themselves for heaven. There must be a Radical e in our natures that we May be pc and in order that our services May eatable and that we May Delight in As god is holy and Man is a sinner Mustbe a change in the one or the other there can be any communion Between As god is holy there must be a e in god or the sinner before they Well together in love and blessedness is holy and he changes not he will be holy and hence the sinner must a or perish.

For the presbyterian Bannov and advocate. An Awakening in the Church of upper it. Bethel a. Or. Editor a it will be cheering to Many to hear of the recent interest in this Little Church under the untiring labors of the Reir. S. Sturges. Who we Are aware at Tho time he resigned his pastoral charge at Phillip Burg n a eight months since where during three years amidst multiplied labors at Home and abroad m building born the spiritual and temporal Walls of that Church he was followed by a continual outpouring from on High retired from that Field of usefulness not without feelings of the the deepest regret we Trust however he can now see enough to convince him that the lord hath a directed his Steps a being entirely of German origin this has been an exceedingly hard place for presbyterians and especially for presbyterian minister but we re Joice to see at this time the fallow ground is being broken.

London. April 3, 1807. The Success of lord Palmerston s government at the general election is unmistakable. The country has pronounced with rare a Naomi to especially against the Cobden party almost every one of them having lost their a eats the mover and Seconder of the successful Resolution of censure which led to the dissolution viz., messes Cobden and Milner Gibson have been thrown out from Manchester. Or. John Bright also whose health had failed him and who is on the continent the vehement opponent of the War with Russia has received the severe verdict of a Long pent up. Indignation certainly to a be a a a peace at and Price Man a a never was there a intend of War More pugnacious bitter and insultingly eloquent. Majorities of three thousand at least against these men and that in the Cotton Polis of Manchester pro claim very strongly that messes Cobden a . Habit of always representing Russia China and the rest of the world m the right and England m the wrong will not be tolerated. For my part i am a. Peaceful Man and a Patriot i Hope but the Way these men and others Allied with them have acted seems to me very disgraceful. I am satisfied if their sentiments prevailed a utilitarianism heartless and selfish without one throb of sympathy with the Noble and the generous much less with the evangelical and prepared to allow Derby and his dangerous followers to take Power and carry out their ecclesiastical policy would Ere Long destroy the old spirit of the nation and that foreign despotism would then presume upon our cowardice and covetousness. The hearing of the election on romanism is of no Small importance. I have in former letters dwelt on the inevitable Advance of tract reamsm As opposed to evangelism should Gladstone regain his position in a British Cabinet. Lord Palmerston s ecclesiastical appointments in the Church have irritated High churchmen much. But he is a Man of rare sagacity he sees with a statesman a Eye How a National is this vile priestly element and How the mass of the people Are protestant in their tendencies and cannot Bear it much longer. Not that lord Quot Palmerston carries into his Church appointments a spirit and a motive such As lord Shaftsbury would do. But he understands the Genius of the people and As a statesman acts accordingly. His sagacity is quite extraordinary. As to Irish elections doctor Cullen the Popes Legate has issued a a a pastoral a i to instruct tote people. He denounces the Orange protestants very sternly but they have assisted by More moderate evangel cals carried the Dublin election against him. He praises those protestant so Mueh elevated by this special visitation but j called gentleman who vote for May Ooth. A i there is however a band of ror Nisa a a Independent opposition lists a who will not follow the Cullen advice which virtually is on the Side of the government As Long As it endorses Romish chaplains in jails and in from the presence of god and seek in hell or should he remain god f would remove his throne to some t part of space and shut the sinner heaven far from his presence and Eaven itself would be a prison for the heaven would be hell sin would Ell of any place sin remaining Rry hell in your own bosom for Ever a you would be fitted for heaven to Ith god in his Blissful presence sin e removed your wicked heart must ged you must be born again Ture is depraved and that nature renovated you Are polluted with d your pollutions must be removed at be delivered from corruption As from condemnation. You must be again or you can never enter heaven ver be prepared for it. It is time to Rnest in this matter. Seek the lord be but one More reason for the noes of regeneration there is no Union Christ without it and we must be to him by Faith or perish. This is iritis work in regeneration. Thus we Iuah in our catechisms As Well As in Isles a we Are made partakers of the option purchased by Christ by the al application of it to us by his holy and a the spirit a Plieth to us demotion purchased by Christ by g Faith in us and thereby uniting us is in effectual calling a or re Genera Short. Cat., ques. 29, 30. As a of the Bible you must have noticed stress is Laid upon Union with to Are chosen in him we Are in w creatures he is in us the Hope of Lwe put on Christ we live in him in him he is our life he is the i we Are members of his body he is Vine we Are the branches he is the or Stone we Are the building there is condemnation to them which Are in him these forms of expression and Many is express and describe or imply our a with .

So the Bond of Union on our tis Faith and on his part the indwelling his spirit.

We Reive life and nourishment from him. A but state of nature we Are dead dead in passes and sins, 1. There is lieu no Union with Christ and of course Hope no peace no salvation. Hence the Corisis our parochial school of. Which the writer has the satisfaction of being principal has we Trust also been materially enlarged and strengthened. It april 20, 1857. M. To preachers. I have found the following rules to be of much service to myself and respectfully suggest to my Brethren in the ministry the propriety of testing their merits1. Resolve to be Brief As this is an age of telegraphs and stenography 2. Be pointed never preach All around your text without hitting it 3. State your propositions plainly but do not Stop Long to particularized. A 4. Avoid Long introductions but plunge into your so Rmon like a swimmer into cold water. / Quot. 5. Condense make sure that you it have a idea and then speak it right out in the plainest shortest possible terms. 1 6. Avoid All High flown language quote no hebrew nor greek aim to be simply a preacher. 7. Be honest enough to own that you. Do Avail yourself of help1 from any source. But in using helps be sure1 you never make stilts of them when your own legs Are far better.a.8. Expect the fathers Blessing yet Are his servant and can do nothing wit out it. / a 9. Step when you Are done. / among the Many rules Given the pro Aoa her d have found it convenient to adopt the above As being such As were profitable to Ine. And now my brother if they will do you any Good you Are Welcome to . 0. Bancroft. Yea when As to legislators and great and Small a a the Mountain peace to the people and the lit righteousness a when we Jones Noble sonnet a a what state a we sadly feel that the been realized under the Best pc Ern ment and that the Day who a a Sovereign Law sits Emp i _ crowning Good repressing can Only arrive when that can stir purifies i Church life and Famis permeate citizenship also.

You Are not going to Tell him any secret. Yon Finay by sure be will not betray your Confidence. Whatever reasons there May Bel for any species of Devotion there Are Nore and stronger reasons for nothing is More embarrassing and disturbing in be Oret prayer than a propitious circumstances. Great attention ought always to be paid to this Point a a enter into thy closet a says Christ. He says not a closet.

Newry the presbyterian goes in. In Dublin City and University two conservatives carry the Day. It is a curious anomaly that the Irish government relies far More on the Boyish element in Ireland than the protestant i and stranger still that evangelical protest i ants elect members of their own opinions who if to la air party were successful would a have to Rand by and see. Trac arianism advanced a England and in the colonies poper1 is a hateful thing a great mar plot and its odious doings in Ireland accounts for this apparent inconsistency. E election of lord John Russel for the City of London is a great Success for cause of constitutional Progress and form. He has been systematically run in for the last few years. The times As behaved shamefully toward him. Head not intended to present himself again As a candidate for London Bat her was roused not Only by counsel to the contrary but by an attempt to make it a Mere mercantile struggle to stand Forth great enthusiasm j was elicited favor and his election is 1 a significant warning to Tho Premier that if he will not bring in measures of Reform he has a rival who May supplant him any Day. The general bearing1 of politics on religion As indicated Mot Long since in 1 one of your own leaders is most forcibly j impressed on ones mind by this general a election. It is alas too True that christians have often acted As if religion had nothing to do with politics and so it has come to pass that the Christian pulpit and. Christian press have left the people uninstructed As to the path they should pursue. Here. The tendencies to corruption and bribery have been greatly checked by recent legislative measures a but paid canvass ing open Public houses the undue influence of Over tenants and of Rich customers Over their tradesmen still shamefully prevail. I have no doubt also that bribery is secretly practice. The general of Lection is a most costly business. It is estimated that nearly �1,000,000 Sterling is expended in direct outlay. The electoral body does not exceed eight Hundred thousand. If things were in pure condition such expenditure at the rate of More than one Pound per head would surely be unnecessary. A Noble spectacle it is to see a people Rise up to the exercise of privileges secured to them by those a invincible knights of old a the confessors patriots and martyrs who through blood and flame and a a with a great sum obtained this Freedom a for us. Any thing is better than the Sta Nancy of despotism and the Union of civil and spiritual tyranny As in the Olden time. But shall not the time yet come to you and to Nso shall not there be a future in politics when Messiah the peaceable and the pure the just one and the merciful shall with his truth pervade Mould leaven Wield the worlds democracy when our a a officers shall be peace and our exact ors righteousness a get a be the in a the it his be an Luti state have both some stare Pel a be under late sir ust out.

Much satisfaction his vote against to mistry on the a chinese question1 Doft Pless contributed to his overthrow the cause of philanthropy with reformatories for Juvelle Jenme will be Strong in the new parliament news comes from Persia of another Battle and of a British Victory and of a persian army completely routed. This makes the heart sad inasmuch a peace had been agreed upon at pans its believed by our politicians that this Blois will strike terror into the orientals. Siti. W. Williams of Kars thinks that this War and its Issue especially As refers to the Security of Herat closes the Gate of India against Russia for a Century to come. That is a prophecy rather too bold. A undoubtedly russian diplomacy turns its eyes Iio longer Westward but eastward it has obtained advantages too by confess icons for it a both Persia and China in connexion wih recent troubles. A a j ,. As to China the emperors Allig Edidia Vowel of the conduct of the vice Ray at Canton and his of Momand to Yeh it i in a ipe Itee on any terms wit i the opportunely to Yusti _ _ Palmerston a position and As we hoped also to save an expenditure of Money and blood. The most authentic accounts seem however top dilate that the chinese emperor supposing the English beaten desires Yeh not of exterminate them utterly but to make peace with them 1 he keeps the other free ports open and wishes not to cease trading1 with the British. But he thinks at Canton they will sue for peace or at least will gladly accept it As a Boon. It is probable therefore that a Large armament will proceed to China As was originally intended and that lord Elgin will undoubtedly be backed by a considerable Force in those negotiations which he is charged to enter into with the emperor. 1 it is an amusing illustration of a palmers a tones adroitness to find him pointing to the immediate retaliation of the Ameri a an com Indore at Canton for the insult offered to the Flag of the United states As a justification of the proceedings of sir John Bowring and Admiral Seymour-1 All civilized nations should non insist on formal communication with the court of Pekin. They should further insist on the continuance of regular Communia Ion with the chinese officials essential to Safe and honorable residence in the noun try and de the bloody Mary to and the Martyr Bishops of a Mand permission to travel through the country but what is to be done with t in opium Trade ?

The moravian Mission to the aborigines of Australia has been suspended the cause seems to be the annoyance to which the Brethren were subjected by certain hostile settlers in the Vicinity to establish a right of Way through the a land which had been granted them by the government for the purposes of the Mission the colonial authorities however have recognized this. Ngh t of Way and thus have virtually broken up the settlement As the Only Hope of doing Good to the miserable aborigines was by in Duomo them to encamp with the station allotment and remain there for a time under instruction this is All the More distressing As a growing Confidence in the missionaries was beginning to be manifested. in Australia is flourishing and ministers Are in great demand.

There has been much truthfully said and written on the Shady Side of a ministers life a and that of his family. It there is also a sunny Side even in this world to their life when no murky Cloud seems to hover nor aught port ending gloom but All is unclouded Sunshine. Such a season it has been my privilege recently to enjoy through the kindness of a grateful people to whom i am bound by Many ties and. Whose generosity is worthy of grateful remembrance and imitation. On the 20th inst., i was visited by the United people of my charge. It was a tender and refreshing scene. Fathers and mothers in Israel venerable for years exceedingly frail in bodily strength mingled with the lambs of my flock and those of All other Ages in conferring an unexpected tribute of respect and esteem to myself and family nor did they come empty. We1 Felt indeed that we were but guests though in our own House yet guests in the midst of those whose kindness was overwhelming. The ladies every where Many a Best Friend and Counselor the Mere consciousness of whose presence is a great blessings spent several hours in making garments for our Little ones from material which their generosity had provided. At about six of clock we were invited to a congregational supper a grand entertainment such As is but Seldom seen in a ministers House. The tables seemed to groan under the weight and Rioh variety of dishes. After Tea or. M. B. Brown called the House to order and read the 344th hymn commencing a your souls Fly love together knit a which was evidently Sung with much feeling. At the close of this exercise mrs. B. M. Kerr in behalf of the ladies of the congregation in a very Happy manner presented mrs. Mcpherson a Beautiful quilt and. Other articles All the workmanship of their own hands and fit Emblem of the Unity which binds us together As a people. Or. We. Frew in behalf of the people of mount Pisgah presented me with a sum of Money which was Well calculated to melt my heart when assured that it was the widows and orphans mite of my charge. Or. M. B. Brown then in behalf of the gentlemen presented me with a Verj neat gown made by the ladies of our sewing Circle and a Beautiful it pair of slippers also a purse a a was a Token of their appreciation of the instructive and highly interesting lectures delivered during the Sabbath evenings of the past Winter to the Young men a also a note which he stated he. Was requested to present in behalf of. An individual. About the same time a lady slipped another into my hand making in All quite a handsome sum of Money Independent of other valuables Bioh were left at my House. A the spirit which prompted this act of kindness and the Christian sympathy and brotherly love which reigned can never be forgotten by me. It will spread its fragrance Oyer my earthly history As that Box of ointment which the weeping penitent crushed Over the feet of Jesus did Over his. And like him i would embalm the deed in the deathless memory of the Good. May he who has promised to be the widows stay and orphans shield the god which has fed me All my life Long till this Day the Angel which redeemed me from All evil bless them with the precious things of heaven with the Dew and the deep that Conchete beneath with the precious fruits brought Forth by the Sun the precious things put for tit by the Moon with the precious things of the ancient mountains precious things of the Ever Laatz no sin in the Church. 1. I a have seen Sideh sin in the Church 1 that i have been often a brought by it tote sickly state of mind. But when i have turned to the world i have seen sin working there in such measures and forms that i have turned Back again to the Church with More Wisdom of mind and More affection to it tainted As it is. I see sin however nowhere put. On such an odious appearance As in the Church. It mixes itself with the most holy things and debates them and turns them it obits own purposes. It builds its nest in. The Pinnacles of the Temple. The a history of the primitive Ages of the Church has also checked the disgust which would arise from seeing the impure state of things before our eyes. Folly and wickedness sported themselves even then in almost All possible forms. I turn in such states of a mind to two portraits in my study John Bradford and archbishop Leighton. These never fail in such eases to speak forcibly to my heart that in the midst of All there is pure religion and to Tell me what that religion . Antidote for bad tempers. A _ an excellent minister possessing much knowledge of him a nature Many Good ministers never acquire instructed his ?ge_�?Tis5uly of Daugul Herb la the theory and practice of music. They were All observed to be exceedingly amiable and Happy. A Friend. Inquired if there was any a secret in Bis Mode of education. He replied a a when anything disturbs their temper i say to them a sing a and when i hear them speak against any person i Call them to sing to me and so they have Sung away All causes of discontent and every disposition to such a use of this accomplishment might serve to fit a family for the company of Angels. Such a practice would sweeten Many sour dispositions. It would annihilate that morbid love of tattling and scandal that often embroil a Community and involves it in personal and family feuds. If there were More singing there might be less tale bearing and slander. If you find yourself speaking against any. Person try the ministers recipe and it will act As a Sovereign remedy. Do you allow your temper to be disturbed try the ministers recipe and it will Calm Yon into a Placid spirit. Indeed the Clergyman a recipe is a Panacea for Many of the ius and disturbing causes of life. A try it and you will find its application very simple and harmless pleasant to the taste and melodious to the ear.
