Died in the City of Brooklyn new York on Friday morning 2d nit after a protracted fill Ness mrs. Tryphenia s. Otis wife of Isaac Otis esq., in the 65th,year of her age. The death of this estimable lady has bereft the Church of an Humble and consistent Christian and the family Circle of a faithful and devoted wife and Mother and has added another worshipper to the throng of the redeemed in heaven saved through the Merit of him who also it idled that she might live. Blessed in Early youth with the Wise counsels and pions instructions of a Christian Mother she Early chose that better path which Shehas followed so Feit Henlly and so Long growing in All those elements of Christian character ont so beautifully in the Home Circle and cast Snow a subdued and divine Light upon that Centre of All that is holy in the Edna Tion of character and All that is Manly and Noble in after life. For the non Sally Long period of forty five years.

It that a life so holy should serenely close and in this respect her Many prayers were no doubt Folly answered. The message that a a the master is come and Galleth for thee a fell not strangely upon her ear but Tike a Long expected invitation. Made familiar by communion with eternal things she received it gladly and putting her House in order calmly and peacefully passed away. The departure of thib aged Saint was not so much dying As escaping. As a captive from bondage or a Bird from its Cage so has one escaped the evil that is in the world leaving an example which Tike a.

John Lead in the 62d year of my age. A or. Leard for the space of about thirty six years was a worthy and esteemed member of Ebenezer presbyterian Church. His birth and baptism life and death were All in the same congregation. And from the beginning to the end such was his character As to win the respect and Confidence of All who enjoyed his acquaintance. He was a Man of Strong mind of much stability and decision of character in honesty integrity and truth irreproachable a Lover of the right the Good and the True. He rejoiced in whatever was for the Benefit of Man and the improvement of society but with Christian firmness Dis countenanced the in scriptural pretensions of modern Reform his influence was All for Good in society in the Chuth of god and in the family in All of which there is now a void not easily to be filled. The loss to his family is serious indeed for by his removal they Are now fatherless and Motherless Coldren. But not unworthy of a worthy father his prayers and counsels among them have not been in vain for often while he lived he have a fathers High enjoyment of sitting Down with six of his children at the lords table together to celebrate the love of Jesus and feast upon the provisions of his Grace. Though there be sadness in recording the death of such yet is it not a mingled with Joy the bereaved Are not left to borrow As those that have no Hope the wounded heart May follow him to the rest that remain eth for the people of god and with chastened pleasure May fondly cherish his worthy memory while Faith beholds him on High in the company of the redeemed.

St. Louis april 1858. On first Day in this City was thei a amp baath. Glad Are we now that it was since a thus got a very favourable impression of the poral and Christian character of thousands of its citizens by the multitudes that attend Church before we saw apy special Maniff a tons of those vices so common in All such places As this. A a. A Quot we worshipped in the second presbyterian Church of which or. Brooks is pastor and heard two Good sermons Ecjpe in the morning and the other in the evening from ministers who were of their Way to the As ily. The congregations were Large and quite attentive and from statements made by the pastor we were gratified to learn that the spirit of god was working graciously upon the hearts of Many that not a few were turning to Tho lord and from the number of prayer meetings announced for the coming week it was evident that the people were determined not to forget the assembling of themselves together As the manner of some is. Monday night also we attended service in this same Church and were much pleased and profited by All we saw and heard. Presbyterianism is Strong and in a healthy condition in st. Louis. Its ministers rank High As men of piety and Power and its members Are among the most influential intelligent and wealthy citizens of the place. Never we see a Christian people we loved More on so limited an acquaintance. May god bless them. A a other evangelical denominations Are also prosperous and numerous As we Are told and from the great number of elegant Church edifices Tjit meet the Eye in every part of the Eity this is doubtless True. But borne is also Strong. She was first to Plant her standards Here. She gave name to the City she not Only has the strength of numbers but of wealth. The property of the Church is immense and still she grasps for More nor grasps in vain for Many of her members that have recently deceased have left her not Only thousands but millions it a a said that the Pope has not in All this land a More faithful son than the Bishop of Missouri he is a deep dyed Jesuit of the old French school. In a drive of a few hours to Day about the Eity with a Friend who is a citizen of the place i was astonished to see the number and magnitude of the schools seminaries Nunn eries churches and other institutions of these deluded people that in every Ward meet the eyes and some of them Are costly and magnificent beyond All description. Such sight a sicken my soul causing a momentary fear lest borne make France Germany and Ireland Eurse America yet but this cannot he. No never. While god reigns truth must Rise. We turn now to other things. We have seen much to Day too much to chronicle. It takes but a few hours to learn the streets of st. Log is. Like those of Philadelphia they Cross at right angles. Those that run parallel with the River Are numbered first second third &o., and those crossing these receive the Beautiful botanical names of Olive pide Chestnut amp a. With the latter is found Market which divides we should think the City into equal parts North and South. The size of the City May be readily imagined when it is known that the streets Are numbered As High As , and that fourth is three Miles Long. The magnitude of the place is much easier understood than its business. This is indeed astonishing. ,. Of what boats i. What a wharf 1 what freight what a Jam of men and drays what a noise we go to the great court House and visit it and had shown and explained to us in the most gentlemanly and satisfactory manner the operation of the a a fire alarm telegraphic apparatus a were taken to All the court rooms to the Law Library recorders and clerks offices &o., amp a. Next a kind Friend takes u s to the museum where we. Saw some things to wonder at and Many to Admire. A few specimens in natural history were very Fine. But the Zeug Lodon is a Little too much for our ote Dulity. It is a Fossil Bone nine six feet Long it is said to have been found by a or. Somebody in an old Field in Alabama. It is a huge compound of the whale Alligator and sea Serpent. Both amphibious and carnivorous it killed its prey with the stroke of its Tail. In fact it is an awful looking thing. But i do believe it a human rather than a to amp Sil formation and that it is a regular built Yankee Humbug conceived first in the brain of some Chip whittling Chap of cheese Dom and then formed out of plaster by hand and then stretched out in this room. I would like to have dug it a Little with my knife just to see but was not permitted. Most of the paintings ate old and poorly executed. Two egyptian mummies said to have been More than three thousand years old Are curious looking things. The gallery of statuary is nothing but Numy of the Birds Are very Beautiful. By the special kindness of a Friend in furnishing us with a Fine horse and Carriage we have not Only been in every principal Square and Street in it but twice through All the Region round about for a radius of six Miles. Have visited the Arsenal House of Refuge Blind Asylum county Farmland last but not least the state fair grounds which for natural and artistic al magnificence far surpass any thing of the kind we Ever saw or dreamed of the ground comprises fifty acres for which 850,000 were paid and they Are now fitted up in the most Superb style. The lawns and walks Are not surpassed by those around the presidents House or about the Capitol at Washington. In the Centre there is an amphitheatre in which thirty five thousand Persona were seated last october to witness a horse trotting exhibition. The stalls Sheds Halls and various other structures used on such occasions Are really elegant and to finish All statuary and water fountains appear in All directions. And Here too is a beautifully finished and furnished House for the accommodation of visitors. Well done st. Louis. . Damned sinners we need two things Pardon and acceptance forgiveness for on sins and a righteousness to entitle us to heaven. By his death Christ has purchased on Pardon by his obedience he has wrought out a righteousness which gives us a title to heaven. The Law has a two fold claim upon us a claim of obedience and a claim of penalty for we have broken it. Christ in our Stead has met the full demands of the Law in both these respects he has obeyed it and borne its penalty and thus fulfilled for is All righteousness paid our two fold debt to just ice and wrought out by his obedience unto death an All Auffie Lieut righteousness for Bur Complete justification before god. The Justice of god is satisfied by Jesus Christ our surety our Legal head and substitute. He has paid our debt he has made an infinite and All sufficient atonement being himself made a curse for . Iii 21�? 26 2. Cor. Y. 21 Gal. Iii 13 heh. X 4�?22. V. The next Point is this the infinite atonement of Jesus Christ his doing and dying his finished work his righteousness is the Only ground of justification. His obedience unto death is our justifying righteousness. This is the righteousness of Christ which is imputed unto us and it is often called in scripture the righteousness of god As it is that righteousness which god has provided for our justification and which is freely offered to us in the gospel. Thus Paul in rom. I 16,17, says 1 am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ for therein is the righteousness of god revealed and hence in rom Iii 20�?26, to thus sets Forth the gospel method of justification now the righteousness of god without the Law is manifested being witnessed by the Law and the prophets even the righteousness of god which is by Faith of Jesus Christ unto All and upon All them that believe for there is no difference for All have pinned and come Short of the glory of god being justified freely by his Grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus whom god hath set Forth to he a propitiation through Faith in his blood to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that Are past through the forbearance of god to declare i say at this time his righteousness that he might he just and the Trifie r of him which belie Yeth in Hodge on rom i 16�?18 and Iii 20�?26. This brings us to the next Point which Iff that the Only Way we can become interested in this righteousness of god is by Faith alone. The righteousness of god is by Faith of Jesus Christ unto All and upon All that . Iii 22. It is received by Faith alone and Henez it is upon believers Only, it is offered to All and must be received by Faith. Hence Faith is a saying Grace. Yet there is nothing meritorious in Faith it does not justify As our or because it is a wonder fill instance of Trust or Confidence for it is but the instrument the hand As in were by which we receive or Lay hold on or accept or dose with Christ As be is freely offered to us. Yet we must believe or we cannot he saved. And the spirit works Faith in us and unites us to Christ in effectual calling so that regeneration and justification Are inseparably connected the Regene fated Are justified As it is written whom he called them he also . Viii 28�?30. Con. Faith Chap. I. Larger cat., ques. 70�?77 Short cat., Viies. 30�?38. Of course the justified Are regenerated and walk in newness of life and so their justification is proved by their Good Piks or their progressive Sanctification. So justification by Faith leads to holiness of heart and life Faith does not justify As a work hut Good works Are fruits and evidences of Faith. Yine ent says a a Faith is a saving Grace a not by the of believing As an for then it would save As a work whereas we Are saved by Faith in opposition to All works but Faith is a saving Grace As an instrument apprehending and applying Jesus Christ and his perfect righteousness whereby alone we Are saved. For god so loved the world that he gave my Only Begotten son that whosoever Beli Eveth in him should not perish hut have everlasting Iii 16 Vincent s catechism ques. 86 1 Page 290, published by presbyterian Board of publication. A this brings us to the fourth and last Point Viz when our minds Are Savin Gly enlightened and we see and feel ourselves sinners polluted and perishing and realize our need of Christ and see a fitness in him to on wants and we a re enabled to receive Jesus Christ by Faith As he is offered to us in the Quot a and to Lay. Hold of him and put our for the presbyterian Bailar and . Letter is by Faith. Therefore being justified by Faith we have peace with god through our lord Jesus rom. V 1. A. Joiy dear Friend a we have seen what justification a a Why we need it and that justification is not of works not by the deeds of the Law a rom. Iii 9�?31. How then Oan we be justified ? How can Man he just with god a Job xxv 4. The Bible must answer and Here we learn four things. And first that As there is a Legal Union Between Christ and his people from eternity in virtue of which he is their Legal head their representative the surety and substitute so in the fulfilment of the covenant of Grace of which he is mediator he took the sinners place was made in the likeness of sinful flesh obeyed the Law in our nature and died in our Stead and thus satisfied the Justice of god for us so god can be just and yet justify because our surety has met the demands of the Law in our Stead both in its Precept and its penalty. As con Ness to save ? to save you and to save Yon now ? and have you accepted him and put your Trust in him ? and do you approve and Delight in the Way of salvation through him ? is he the lord your Quot righteousness ? has he of god been made righteousness to you ? have you received him have you embraced him ? to you love him and Trust him do you believe Are Yon justified ?
