This remarkable proportion could not have been the result of Accident. Moreover so far As the record goes the apostles never in a single instance baptized the head of a family without admitting the whole family to that ordinance. Facts like these were found with the supposition that the apostles were baptists. 3. In designating the families they baptized the apostles uniformly made use of a word which was commonly understood to mean the children of a family and was actually so understood by the christians of. Early times. 4 the lord Jesus when preparing his disciples to fulfil their great commission instructed them that Little children or infants belonged to his visible Church or kingdom and he so worded his last command to baptize As to include persons of All Ages. Accordingly the apostles on the Day of Pentecost when they fully opened the gospel dispensation in their exhortations to baptism joined parents and children together As alike sharers in the precious Promise made to their fathers. 5. The apostles regarded the Christian Church As a simple continuation of the jewish and therefore set up no new organization the Christian Church being nothing More nor less than the jewish purged of its apostate members. They also clearly taught that the Church is the same under both dispensations possessing the same religion and sustaining the same relation to god. Infant membership having been originally established by the authority of god and never revoked remained in full Force under the new dispensation. Consequently the right of infants must still be recognized by admitting them to baptism. It was seen moreover that the principle adopted by our opponents will go to exclude females from the communion and infants from salvation. In conclusion we must notice an objection or two. ,. For that presbyterian a amp Traer and advocate. Infant . 9. We a five not yet noticed a remarkable scripture Bieh the Baptist Breth men have never yet been Able to explain in my Way a inf a ratable to their scheme says he apostle Paul a unbelieving Lush and is sanctified by the wife and the believing wife is sanctified by the Hus and else were your children unclean but of Are they holy.�?��?-1 Cor. Vii 14. In this passage the Appella Tives unclean d holy Are placed in contrast one with the a ther so that the meaning of the one determines the meaning of the other. The word translated unclean aka Hartos odours ust a a thirty times in the new Testa Meg in connexion with Quot the history of Tintcon-1 version of Cornelius it is three times used to signify ceremonial uncleanness but in no less than Twenty three other instances it is applied to impure spirits or devils according to Tertullian the children of Heathen parents were from their birth devoted to the idol gods and were hence regarded by the christians As consecrated to impure demons and therefore unclean. And this we apprehend is the sense in which the word is used in the passage under consideration. If both parents were Heathen the children were reckoned among the abbe. Rents of the Heathen deities. Tae children of believers holy. The word rendered holy Hagios occurs two Hundred and Twenty seven times in the new testament and though often used to express moral purity it is very frequently employed to signify consecration to the lord. Thus the Temple and its precincts Are styled the a a holy place a Hagios tops because dedicated to the service of god. And it is remarkable that this is the word which is used More frequently than any other to designate the members of the Christian Church. It is employed for this purpose Hole a than thirty eight times in a be epistles and acts of the apostles. Thus How often do we meet with such phrases As these a All the churches of the saints Iha Gion a the saints Kagios at Ltd due a to All the saints in Girois that Are in Achaea a to the saints Hagios that Are in Ephesus a a fall the saints Kagios Salute you a a ministering to the saints a he Yiotis a a Salute All the saints Ragious. Iri these and a great multitude of other places the word is applied Indis Criminate y to All members of the Christian Church of whatever description. Nor in there a single instance in which the Appel native is bestowed upon a person not belong ing to the Church. The propriety of this application of the term is apparent because All who Are embraced in the visible Church Are externally consecrated unto the lord in bib sense we believe the word is applied to the children of believing parents. They Are Horn in the Church belong to the lord and Are therefore a a holy hag a. The words of the apostle in the passage under discussion May therefore be paraphrased thus a a otherwise your children would be accounted adherents of the Heathen idols but now they belong to the lord As members of Bis visible those v to would have the apostle to mean a a else were your children illegitimate now Are they legitimate a make him to Reasen most absurdly for they represent him As proving the lawfulness of the marriage by the legitimacy of the children worse than this they make him to say that if neither Parent is a believer the children Are illegitimate 1 -. It is worthy of notice that Tertullian whom our opponents without reason claim As a Baptist in commenting on the above passage observes a a that every soul is accounted in Adam until it is enrolled in Christ and till then and this he says is a according to the sentence of our lord a unless any one is born of water a a Anima c. 39. ,. now touched upon the principal Quot arguments in support of infant baptism it will not be amiss to bring together the relink of our examination. I. To have seen the groundless Ness of the calumny that infant baptism is a relic of a Popery add have recognized the fact that it was constantly practice by All the ancient sets even those who were most hostile to k Ime then turning to the Early history of the Church we traced the baptism of infants up to the apostolic age a a objections answered. 1 it is asserted by our opponents that baptism considered Quot in its scriptural import cannot apply to infants. That ordinance say they supposes that the subject of it in a believer in Christ has obtained remission of sins and been regenerated by the holy spirit none of which throws can be affirmed with certainty of an infant. But do. They not see that this objection bears with qual Force against the propriety of infant circumcision and is therefore an indirect pea Cement of the Wisdom of god ? circumcision the apostle tells us was a a a Seal of the righteousness of Faith a rom. In. 11 that it waa a sign of a a Ward. Holiness a circumcision is the heart a rom. Ii �?�2s Anil that it a in pm bes obligations of obedience binding the subject a to do the whole . V 3. Let us ask our Good Brethren How could any of these things apply to an infant of eight Days old ? the proper answer to this question will satisfactorily explain the applicability of baptism to infants. A a 2. A a what Good can it do to baptize an infant a in turn i ask what Good can it. O to baptize an adult ? if it be urged that adults can comprehend the nature of the ordinance and the obligations they incur i reply so can parents understand the responsibilities they assume in giving up their children to god in baptism. And so can the children themselves in due season be made sensible of the privilege and the duty arising out of their Early dedication to the lord. An inspired apostle proposes the question a a what profit in there of Cir it cum Ision a a rom. In 1. His Owsian ser is a a much every and this is our reply to those who hold up to ridicule what they style infant sprinkling and in tones of Defiance exclaim a a what Good can do a much every Way quite As much As infant circumcision did. To believing parents who present children to god in baptism that ordinance seals confirm is ratifies that gracious covenant in which god promises to take a special interest in the welfare of the children of his be Lieving people to take them to himself if they die in infancy or if he spare them to Riper years displays his readiness to bestow on them All the blessings of salvation. It imposes corresponding obligations upon the parents in regard to the religious instruct. Tion of their children who Are thus introduced into the school of Christ to be trained for his service. It stimulates them to the performance of duty by holding out the pleasing expectation that through the promised Blessing of god upon their labors their beloved offspring May be partakers of those Rich blessings of which baptism is a sign. To the children themselves so soon As they Are Able to understand anything their own Early Bap Triin represents the necessity a fire Mission of sins of Faith repentance and new obedience in order to eternal life blessings which can be enjoyed Only through the blood of Christ and the operation of his spirit. Moreover As they have had the Seal of the covenant placed upon them they Are bound by peculiarly solemn obligations to seek for and possess the Rich blessing0 held out in that covenant. Justas c rub moisten formerly bound its infant subjects to obey this Law so under the present d spen action baptism binds its infant sub ejects to obey the is the obligation weakened by the Ireum stance that they were too Youn g to yield their assent at the time of baptism. It is a principle adopted in All enlightened governments that children owe obedience to Laws to which they have never Given their consent and surely no one can be too Young to be brought under the most solemn obligations to love serve and glorify the lord his god p. the first line of the last no., instead of a a the ancient corinthians a read a a the ancient taking leave of the subject with which he has so Ion occupied the columns of the Banner and adv Cate the writer desires gratefully to acknowledge the almost perfect accuracy with which his communications have been printed.

My dear Friend a a the promises of god Are sure. And though his people May be in occasional darkness they shall have Light and gladness. Their Faith May be tried but god is True and not fill. Now Faith is the imbalance of things hoped evidence of things not . I 1 but if men had their Way there would be no room lor Faith they would walk All the Way to heaven by sight or by feeling and give up their Hope whenever their nerves Are deranged or the East wind blows just As if god changes with our varying health or with the wind. God changes not and when he begins a work of Grace he will carry it on to its completion. He will perfect that which conce Roeth his . Xxxviii 8. The new creature which is his own workmanship is immortal it will live for Ever because god will keep the renewed Soui by his own Power and the Union Between it ind Christ As it was legally formed in the a divine purpose from eternity and spiritually consummated herein time in the exec a Ion of that purpose shall never be Dis solved i say the Union Between Christ and is people shall never be dissolved the members shall abide in the head and rest with him for Ever. Then let them Trust in Inion Here under All Coroum staubes m sickness and in health in trial in life and in Leath. All things shall work together for heir Good. Who shall separate us from lie love of Christ shall tribulation or distress or persecution or famine or nakedness or peril or sword ? nay in All these of hugs we Are More than conquerors through aim that loved us. For i am persuaded that neither death nor life nor Angels nor principalities nor Powers nor things present a nor things to come nor height nor depth icon any other creature shall be Able to separate us from the love of god which is i n Christ Jesus our lord.�?1. Pet. I 3�?5 rom. Viii 28�?39. Yet some tender consciences Are distressed with the fear that they have committed the uti pardonable sin and they ask with deep anxiety what is it to commit i he unpardonable sin ? or what is that bin which shall never be forgiven ? a few words on this Point May not be out of place Here. There is a Bible dictionary in your Sabbath school Library and this says 11 the sin unpardonable probably consists in a deep and Mah Gnadt opposition to god in attributing the operations of the holy a spirit to satan s influences in a settled and fixed hatred to the teachings and restraints i f religion and All this made Manifest by perseverance in. This reprobate condition. While there is reason to believe that Many l of commit the unpardonable sin yet it is Tot Likely to be chargeable on those who Are gainfully apprehensive that they have com-,1 listed it a see Bible dictionary published l y the presbyterian Board. Where this sin is spoken of in Matthew twelfth chapter Yon will see that the enemies of Christ attributed his works to a clinic influence. Thib was a great sin yet it might be forgiven. In this connexion the in of the sin against the holy Rhost which he declares shall not be for liven Matt Xii 22�?37. Hence it he Ould seem that this sin is treating the a Lully ghost As the jews treated Christ so i iras is possible or As the differences of circumstances will allow. As they attrib lid the works of Christ to satan so the in against the holy ghost is attributing 1 is works to satanic influence and the Reaf m Why this sin is never forgiven is because t in holy ghost is thus resisted and grieved away and leaves the guilty ones to hardness old things Are passed a Way and All things a become new.�?2.

While Louis Napoleons would be assassins were being sen.

What was the Causo of this grave conclave a deliberations at which it is to be presumed both the emperor add the Queen were pres ent know then that the question of the danubian principalities was under discussion. They Are nominally under turkish Rule but the population by a Large majority belongs to the greek Church and look to Russia with veneration. Russia strongly advocates. The Union of the principalities and the placing of a native Prince who would be her creature and puppet on the throne. Some say the French emperor is Union with the View of having a French Prince appointed. England opposes the Union of the principalities thus backing Austria who fears the re establishment of russian influence on her Borders and Turkey which besides being reluctant to modify her sover.
