Gods plan to Humble human Pride. The Blind be leads in a Way they knew Isa in 16. The main use of the publication of religious experiences is not to teach men just How they must feel when they become christians but to illustrate the Rich and free Grace of god and show the diversity of the divine operations upon the souls of men. This is the great value of or. A. Alexanders thoughts on religious experience. He has been said to have known More of experimental religion than any Man in America both in his own personal experience and in his collected experiences of others. Many of these Are Given and commented on in his thoughts. It is a treasure which air should possess and study. I would again recommend it to you. Read it carefully. And read also his a life a and his a a Way of salvation a and his a a divine. Guidance a All published by the presbyterian Board. But be not distressed because your experience is not like that of others you do. Not feel just As you think you ought or As you desire to feel far the presbyterian Banner and advocate. Evidences of unessential. Therefore if any Man be in Christ he a a a new creature old things Are passed away behold things Are become new.�?-2, Cor. Y 17. My dear Friend a As was observed in a former letter these words teach us several important lessons Here is Union with Christ to be in Christ is Tobe United to him. There is a Legal Union with Christ. When one is surety for another such a Legal Union Between them that if the principal fails the surety must pay the debt. The Law holds him responsible. Hence this Union is a Legal Union. So Christ arts for his people. He is their surety. They have failed he pays the debt a and he does this because he is their surety. There is a Legal or covenant Union Between them and him. And not Only a Legal or covenant but also a vital Union they Are United to him by Faith As Well As by Law or covenant. And Here is the results or inseparable adjunct of this vital Union a new creation the new birth if any Man be in Christ he is a new creature. And Here Are the evidences of this change it will be Manifest in the life being renewed old things Are passed away by he adj All things Are become new.-�?2. Cor. A 17.we come now to the evidences of regeneration. It is very important to have right views on this Point and hence i shall show first what Are not certain a evidences of regeneration danger of relying upon false evidences and often much perplexity about things of no real of to t the great Point is have you Faith Doyz a believe ? let your Trust be in Jesus Christ and serve him with All your heart. He will be your Light and your salvation your peace and Joy. In some few Points the great outlines the experience of All is alike or very similar but in the details religious experience is almost endlessly diversified. A no two. Are just alike just As no two human faces Are exactly alike just As no two human minds Are exactly alike and just As the condition arid circumstances and the influences under which they Are placed of no two Are exactly and in All respects alike. There Are diversities of operations but it is the same god which work eth All in All.-�?1. Cor. Xii 3�?7. Hence be not disturbed because your experience is not just like that of others nor because you have not Felt just As you thought you should nor because you do not now feel just As you wish you did nor because you do not always feel just alike or have the same degree of peace and Confidence. Religion is not Mere feeling it is a vital principle and the principle May be there though not always equally Active. The great Point is have you fled to Christ ? do you believe ? do you Trust in him ? do you rely upon him Are you living to his glory is he precious to you ? and do a you Delight in the Way of salvation through him ? does that Way appear excellent and glorious and is Jesus Christ the beloved of your soul the a Chiefest among ten thousand and altogether Lovely ? Are you living a life of Faith and prayer ? so May it be Solomon a song v 9�?16. Hymn 83. A a Hail my Ever blessed Jesus a Only thee i Ziab to sing _ to my soul thy name is precious thou my Prophet priest and yours truly. A is there not sufficient intelligence to appreciate the importance of this great cause both to our Church and our country is there not piety enough among us to command the Means which Are indispensable to the vigorous and successful prosecution of the vitally important work of Domestic missions must the Board continue to decline the establishment of new missions however urgently needed or promising must they continue to reduce the salaries of our self denying and laborious missionaries salaries which Are now scarcely sufficient for their support and either drive them from their Fields or oblige them to resort to some secular employment in order to procure bread for themselves and families ? and yet such must be the action of the Board a unless our receipts Are promptly and largely increased. The Board can Only disburse what they receive and will feel it to be their duty to bring their liabilities within their income As speedily As circumstances will allow. It should be remembered that we have no collecting agents in the Field and must therefore rely upon the pastors and churches to take up collections for this cause. The plan of systematic Benevolence which is designed to supersede the necessity of employing collecting agents has worked As Well perhaps for the time As could be reasonably expected and it would most certainly sue need with the divine Blessing if on pastors and churches would universally and jealousy co operate in giving it effect. But while this plan is slowly taking the place of on former method of collecting funds our Treasury is being exhausted and our necessities Are too urgent for delay. We need immediate Relief or we can not meet our accruing liabilities. Having thus stated the Case, leave the matter to the serious and prayerful consideration of All the churches. With you dear Brethren rests the grave responsibility of either relieving the Board or suffering it from the want of adequate Means to become still More embarrassed. We do not mean to express indifference on our part As to the result far from it. We should deeply deplore the necessity for continued retrenchment. The Liberal policy hitherto pursued by us is the Best evidence we can give of our Earnest desire to extend the boundaries of our beloved Church and to furnish an adequate support to our Seif deny ing laborious and useful missionaries1. Brethren what will be your response to this urgent Appeal for Aid shall a the right Arm of the Church be paralysed or shall it not rather be strengthened for the glory of god the Extension of the redeemer s kingdom the stability and Prosperity of our common country and the eternal salvation of Many immortal souls will not All these momentous interests be affected More,.or less by.

Still it is Light labor comparatively lifter All and Providence Calls and a the time is Short and Sweet and refreshing Lovely Southern watering place on it the coast of Dorsetshire whither i go and Jjo Here i tend for Quot a few weeks the flock Iff an absent brother who is trying in the North to get the funds heeded lor the building in which the Westminster Assembly doctrines have already been welcomed by the evangelical laity who either reside or place where in the Church of England Puse ism f is rampant and dominant.

This brings up a. Little Story by Way of Winter before last care comes to in Dorsetshire a Yourm licentiate of the free Church of Scotland. He had. Been seeking health previously on the continent he comes to Winter quarters now where a Sanatorium established in connexion with the metro Litan Hospital for diseases of the Chest an toe.

And in his Renov Ted health he docs so. There is quite a s nation he continues his a elections an a the evangelical Episcopalian visitors we spare disgusted at the Parish Church hear of him and begin to repair to his ministry. He is just the Man for b. The Haj a a flock say will you be our pastor.? he replies a a i am a presbyterian. I Mustbe ordained by my own Brethren and a if i undertake a. Moment in this affair. Hence i shall first give some attention to these preliminaries and unessential. For instance some Are perplexed because they cannot Tell just when and where they were regenerated or when and where they found peace in believing. This is not necessary. The wind blow eth where it Listeth says the Saviour but you cannot Tell any thing about it where it comes from or where it Iii 8. The great question is does it blow ? or has it blown ?. Look at the effects look at the evidences if these exist that is sufficient. Have you Faith do you believe if the thing is there no matter whether you can Tell when of where or How it came or not. Have you Felt yourself a sinner and in need of Christ and his salvation ? have you asked a what you must do to be saved ? have you prayed for Meroy ? have you been in Christ a suitable Ness to your necessities ? do you see that he is just the Saviour you need ? do you approve from your heart the Way of salvation through him do you Oast yourself on him do you Trust in him and rely upon him ? it is but a few Days since one trembling sinner gave me an affirmative answer to All these questions and if you can do so no matter whether you can Tell when or where you were born again or not. But few Ean fix precisely the time and the place and �111 have to say. To you is believe Trust in Christ and serve him and you Are sate. Your serving Himin cheerful and Loving obedience is the proof that you do believe and Trust in him and that you Are in him a new creature born of the spirit born from above. Others Are distressed because they have not Felt As Thev thought they should feel when they experienced religion or they have not Felt As they wanted to feel or they do not now feel As they want to feel or As they think they ought to feel. They make up their minds beforehand what it is to experience religion and How they must feel and How they shall feel and because they have not Felt just so and do not feel just so they Are perplexed and distressed. Now this is just As unreasonable As it would be for a Blind Man who had been restored to financial a embarrassment. Mission rooms no. 821 Chestnut Street Philadelphia. The Treasury of the Board of Domestic missions is being rapidly drained and will be very soon exhausted. The balance now in band August 17th is More than eleven thousand dollars less than it was at the same thine last year while the accruing liabilities Are very much greater than they were a year ago. The probability at present is that the Treasury will n of Only be entirely exhausted before the Issue of another number of but that by the first of october next the Board will be considerably in debt 1 the amount now in hand is not More than sufficient to meet the Ordinary disbursements of three weeks 1 under these circumstances the Board have Felt compelled to restrict their operations and reduce their appropriations and must continue to do so in order to prevent still greater difficulties unless relieved by the More general and Liberal contributions of the friends of the cause. The present financial embarrassment has been mainly occasioned by the failure of the churches to respond to the enlarged operations and increased appropriations of the Board. During the past four years the number of missionaries has been considerably augmented and their average salary previously inadequate to their support advanced nearly fifty per cent. The Board have also established new missions especially in the newer states an d territories which has involved a heavy additional expense. This Liberal policy has been repeatedly and earnestly commended by the general Assembly and we believe has met with the decided approbation of the whole Charob. Such an increased expenditure by the Board required of course a corresponding increase in our receipts. Instead of this however last year the total receipts As compared with the year preceding fell Short nearly four thousand dollars while the excess of appropriations Over the former year amounted to nearly nine thousand dollars 1 notwithstanding this the Board still went Forward hoping that Tho contributions of the churches would improve when these facts were made known to them. In this have been sadly disappointed for instead of an increase the receipts have fallen off. During the past five months of the present fiscal year As compared with the corresponding months of the year preceding Over three thousand Bix Hundred dollars. While the receipts have thus fallen off our payments As compared with the corresponding months of last year have been Between five and six thousand dollars More. Under these circumstances the Board Are obliged in renewing commissions to reduce the amount off their appropriations to the missionaries and will be compelled to suspend to a great extent All further aggressive movements. These effects Are truly deplorable for our missionaries in general were barely Able to live with the amount appropriated to them on account of Quot a a and sight to doubt and question whether he did j the greatly advanced Cost of living and really a Fia. A finance a Einz a proves to be such 1 Many of them must actually suffer by the reduction of their meagre salaries. Really see because seeing proves a different thing in fast from what he thought it was while he was Blind he thought perhaps colors were to be Felt whereas he finds they Are Only perceived and hence he doubts whether he sees because he cannot feel the colors of objects. Now the sinner is Blind and what can he Tell about spiritual sight and spiritual feeling the fact is. Religious experience is almost endlessly diversified and when one makes up his mid beforehand what it is to exp it Nence Elgion or How he must feel he is almost sure to be disappointed and consequently to feel perplexed this is More Over there Quot never was a time when evangelical ministers were More in demand throughout on country nor when our Church was in so advantageous a position to extend her boundaries. Very Many places of great prospective importance might and ought to be occupied by us without delay. A but Why should the Board be left to the necessity of and restricting their operations ? Are not the pecuniary resources of the Church amply sufficient to relieve the Board and enable them to resume their recent Liberal policy ?. From our London correspondent.

Others i can furnish from my own observation at a but i forbear for the present and turn away to other themes try. The Oriental is quiet in his Ordinary bearing but roused be is a fiend in human form. There were fourteen out of seventeen officers massacred at the mess table at Allahabad. The times anticipates and justifies a terrible retribution. Delhi is the capital of a province which once formed a part of the renowned Empire of the great Mogul. The capital formerly consisted of three cities built near to each other. The first Long since destroyed had fifty two Gates and formed the residence of King porus who was vanquished by Alexander the great. The second City was demolished by Shah. Jehan to furnish the materials to build the City which bears his name. Delhi alone remains. The Road Between it and Agra is that famous walk planted by j Ehin Ghir four Hundred and fifty Miles in length 1 each half league is marked a kind of Turret and at every stage there Are Little caravan Sardis for the Jien fit of travellers.

It is a the nominal capital of All Hin Doostan and was the actual capital during the greater part of the time since the Mohammedan gon Questi i it is full of mosques is More than nine Miles in circumference and about three Miles in diameter. To the seventeenth Century the inhabitants amounted to 2,000.,000. The present population is about 160,-, 000, half Hindoos and half Mohammedans. When in 1738, Nadia Shah invaded Hin Doostan 100,000 of the population of Delhi perished by the sword and the plunder amounted to the almost incredible sum of �62,000,000 Sterling. In connexion with the present state of affairs it is important to observe that Delhi has a fortress of about one mile and a half in circuit with Strong Walls a towers and ditches. A. The puppet. Mogul King whom the rebels have set up was a British stipendiary with the Large annual Revenue of �150,000. He hesitated it is said at first to j oin the mutineers and porno say they have since put him to death. It is also rumoured by last accounts from Calcutta that the mutineers refuse to receive and co operate with some Punj bees or revolted sikhs who had come Over to them. If so the step is a false one for their interests.

Meanwhile the collection of taxes in Bengal and nude is suspended the funds were lower this week than since january 1856, when preparations were made for a final assault on Russia just before she gave in. The funds rallied somewhat by an extract of a letter from Ceylon of july 2d, stating that Delhi had fallen and 7,000 sepoy had been killed while our loss was considerable.

Cairns announcing the Union into one body of the a a Synod of Victoria and the a free Church this is very Gratifying especially As there was no letting Down by the free Church men of their own Quot platform of principles the fast being that the scottish establishment party broke off their connexion with their friends at Home in a Friendly spirit ip.,order to consummate the Union and that on a basis we in of fit a a i w Ike Fhy to pm fitus in Independence of the Church and the liberties of the Christian people.
