Nickelsville 1868. Mart. It tor the Freeby Terian Banner end advocate. Early religions newspapers. Independence �mo., got. 25,1858. A or. Mckinney dear i have noticed in the new York observer that or. Will and or. Morse each claim the Honor of having established the first religious newspaper in the United states. The truth is neither of them has any right to that Honor the late Rev. John Andrews having a better claim to it than either of them. The Boston recorder which they suppose was the first religious newspaper in this Oon try was established in the year 1816 in the year 1814, or. Andrews established a religious newspaper at Chillicothe. Ohio called a the weekly recorder. It was precisely on the plan of the religious newspapers of the present Day except that it was printed in the Quarto form. A subscriber Pri served i the fourth volume which. Baa been m my Possession More than Twenty years. Whether or not More than the four volumes were published at Chillicothe i am not informed or. Andrews removed from Chillicothe to Pittsburgh and there published the advocate which was but a continuation Oft be f recorder with Only a change of name and the place of publication. The Boston re reorder having been established May have % been the reason Why the name was changed. The advocate has been continued until the present Day Aid by the Union with the Banner is now the Banner arid a i Coati of which you Are the editor. So that your paper is probably the oldest religious news to paper in the United states at any rate it a is certain that i Andrews published the weekly recorder at Chillicothe. Before the Boston recorder had existence. Or. Andrews having lived so Long in Pittsburgh i suppose you would have Little trouble in ascertaining All the facts1 concern ing his newspaper we to pm too and editorial labors. I Hope you will do so and in jus a Tice to the memory of or. Andrews publish the facts in your paper. Should you publish anything on the subject i would be glad to see it. Respectfully yours. Jas. Stonestreet p. S a in the year 1812, or. James fish Back late of Lexington Kentucky became the editor of a newspaper at that place called the Western Monitor. He devoted one Pago of the paper exclusively to religious intelligence. Prom this it would seem the lord was preparing the Way for religious newspapers. Christians were beginning. To see their s or raising to hasten the glorious a . Or to it make use of All the modern appliances and improvements. To read or hear descriptions of the sad condition of the millions of poor perishing yet immortal Beathon and to weep Over the description yet Foo nothing for them. To pity the poor missionaries with the turning up. Of holy eyes and pious exclamations about the great a orifice amp of and sending them hut with a Tael Itig meetings and then forgetting to Pray Ore Are for them. Quot apropos to this the1 great1 Dri Judson relates How great was a Joyc lip when Heiter turned j to Ambrif Csc aft Llva Longia Brenoc Amonjr Eithfl j ,ithe5etrthtisabtieenrkttuahortkrhis k hands till they Nearl Shouk his arms off j land ladies followed him with acis3orsf to out a off looks of his and yet said Judy on they would Mot have lifted one of their Little fingers earnestly to Aid a the cause i advocated / to sit in Fine comfortable churches and sing.

They Call us to deliver to Weir land from errors chains and yet never letting the Eye of pity gaze or perhaps letting it gaze without doing anything More. Never doing anything worthy of the name to deliver those unhappy lands which have been calling calling calling exquisite cruelty of Christian irony thus to sing Over the miseries of Mankind a but it is unnecessary to specify More examples. Do they not show what is the genuine reprehensible Romance of missions . J a a. A. A a i. A., Reed esq., he re elected As members of the overture no. 4 if Cyl. Report was.

Or the first religions newspaper in the United states As we noted last week was published by John w. Scott in May recur to the subject again a for the presbyterian Banner and advocate. Romance of missions. A a sum a the shoe on the right the phrase a Romance of missions a is. Often misapplied. Thus it is often said that missionaries and Earnest christians who take a deep interest in missions and who Manifest their Faith and interest and professions by corresponding deeds Are carried away by the Romance of missions. These words Are mostly found in the Mouth of the world and sometimes in the Mouth of christians nominal at level who Are ignorant or sluggish or miserly. The miserly especially in and out of the Church Are troubled with a strange obliquity of moral vision super induced by their Peculiar pro pensions. They much resemble their god mammon one of Milton a fallen a gels to the least Ete ated fell from heaven fore in in heaven his looks and always downward Bent admiring More the riches of heavens pavement i Odden Gold than aught divine or holy Pise enjoyed in the vision beatifio.�?�. Such could not pct haps be expected to have Clear straight Forward views or High and holy aspirations As they Are not troubled much with de up unselfish Oon Vio tons of duty having a their origin in solid substantial Sublime realities and encouraged by Well grounded Hopes it May not seem so strange that they cannot Moely distinguish a a what substance is and Shadow what. Let not terms be abused however. Let words have their proper dictionary meaning. Then shall be the Maxim a a sum clique a to every one his own. A a Bat then is the proper application of. The expression ? is not this the Romance of missions to profess christianity with its requirements and obligations to profess Union and Oom Nunion with Christ and willingness. To obey All Bis commands to acknowledge the duty of carrying on the mis Sion work vigorously and yet doing nothing corresponding to talk about a a Amoedo Nian cries a a wide open doors Quot a icon version of the jews and bringing m of Tho gentiles a hastening the millennium glory a a a wonderful and glorious Prophe Aiea a a a great discoveries of Livingstone m Africa a a the facilities of communication with All parts of the world a knowledge running to and fro a &o., amp a. Yet never responding to those cries How Long have they Uaen crying or entering those doors the Synod of a heeling. This body held its annual sessions in the presbyterian Church of Washington commencing october 19th, and closing on the 22d. Much business of importance was transacted of which the following items a Are selected for publication by the committee appointed for that purpose the opening Sermon was preached by the Rev.
