For the presbyterian Banner and advocate evidences of regeneration. I letter of Thomas Scott cd. I and Given the Earnest of the spirit in our hearts. A 2. Cor. I s 22. I my dear Friend a a before intimated you May not find these letters very orderly s yet i Hope they May be useful to you. This i is my aim. Hence what i have to say on i the evidences of regeneration must be deferred till another time and then i May try death to show what Are not and what Are certain glory evidences of regeneration. At present al amen of me to give part of a letter of the Rev. A. Thomas Scott the commentator on a the knowledge of Pardon and the witness of the this was of great service to me years ago and it May possibly be of service to you also. He says a a though in some oases persons May know the Tim and the place both when they were awakened and when they were comforted j they were brought to submit to gods righteousness in their condemnation not withstanding All their endeavours and to Oast themselves on his free mercy through the blood of Jobus and to see his whole Sharac ter and conduct Lovely and Christ precious and his salvation glorious and holiness Beau-1 Tifful and his service perfect Freedom j yet i itis not generally thus. At first knowledge is usually scanty experiences Are indistinct \ and views of divine things Are confused and mixed with inconsistency. Then shall i be know if be follow on to know the lord his going Forth is prepared As the morning. Now in the morning the Day dawns a glimmering beam diffuses itself but it is dusk still and objects Are indistinctly perceived but gradually it grows lighter. Thus it commonly is with True christians. In time they find that these effects Are produced and if they Are certainly produced it matters not whether we know when or where. If god hath shown you the strictness and goodness of the Law and your obligations As the creature to love and obey him according to it so As to convince you that by nature and practice you Are an inexcusable sinner deserving of his Wrath that none of your doings can make him your debtor or give you any claim upon his Justice or make it unjust in him to condemn you if you see your Best deeds to be sinful and to need forgiveness and seeing this take the blame to yourself cast yourself on free mercy As a justly condemned Binnert see a suitable Ness in gods Way of saving sinners through the infinitely valuable obedience and atonement of Emmanuel honouring the Law and satisfying Justice in our Stead that he might be just and the Justifier of the ungodly if you have thus Learned to see gods whole character Lovely that one so great and glorious so holy and just should he so compassionate merciful and Loving if in this Way you have Learned to hate sin to love holiness and follow after it and to be humbled ashamed and grieved that you Are no More holy to feel a spirit of cordial love to gods Ohara oter government and gospel gratitude to him for his mercies Zeal for his glory wanting others to know love serve and enjoy his Favory considering his cause As yours being grieved when his name is dishonoured and rejoicing in the Prosperity of religion praying from your heart the beginning of the lords prayer and indeed the whole of it if this has taught you to desire Tobe patient in trouble to be contented in your station to depend on his Providence to adorn his gospel and live to his glory you then have the substantial evidences of conversion such As they who have the most of the others have in general Little of. This filial spirit toward god is the spirit of adoption the Seal of the spirit which the Devil can neither break nor counterfeit the Earnest of the spirit a part of heaven brought Down into the soul As a pledge of the whole. _ and when the holy ghost brings these implanted grades into Lively vigorous exercise then he witnesses with our spirits that we Are gods children and not usually by any words brought to the mind As Many Are deluded to believe. The latter satan Oan counterfeit and it has nothing divine in it j the former is divine from god and leading to god please Bear in mind these valuable thoughts As this will prepare you to profit by what i May hereafter write. The substance of these letters As you know was Given More than four years ago to a few who met at my House on monday evenings for conversation and prayer. They Are presented More fully now for your Eon Sidera ton i and i wish they might reach All who then oame to me for conversation and in. Vimr congregation. Where Are those persons now ? How few of them Are members of your Church or of any other How few of them have any Hope in Christ i one truth at least they have Learned an excitement is not a revival. Of another True h i would remind them and you conviction is not conversion. You May have some Little interest in religion and in religious subjects and yet not become a Christian. Yea you May even be persuaded you Are converted and yet be in your sins it is possible some of them Are members of the Church let them adorn their profession. It is possible others of them should be members of the Church let them come out from the world and profess their Faith in possible some of them Are still halting Between two opinions let them choose this Day whom they will , xxiv 15. It is possible some of them Are yet careless and indifferent let them repent and turn unto god. Could i address each Oue of them i would say As i now say to you you have seen and Felt enough to know that if saved at All it must be by Grace. You Are a sinner. Regeneration is necessary you must be bom again you must become a new creature in Christ Jesus or you must perish. And win you longer resist that spirit by whose Power you must be created anew or sink Down in eternal despair you May not be gtd in to of the unpardonable sin hut remember a by sin a repented of is unpardonable and sinner As you have resisted and grieved the spirit hitherto there is danger that he May take his final departure and leave you in your sins to perish yes there is danger and every step you take increases a the danger every moments delay increases your danger and me thinks the blessed spirit is just now spreading his wings and ready to take his final departure. There sinner there he is just ready to leave you and then you a Are lost forever lost 0 awake and Pray o sinner beseech him to remain and yield your Hartfo his control i see sinner see he is about to leave you will you let him depart will you Grieve him away ? and must you be lost lost lost 0 spirit of glory delay thy departure strive still with this poor soul subdue it by thy Grace and create it anew in Christ Jesus the work is thine Pluck it As a Brand from the eternal burning fit it for life and and heaven and thine shall be the and the Praise for Ever and Ever. A yours truly. Recent action of the committee of the american tract society. The publishing committee with the concurrence of the other members of the exe outlive committee deem it due to the friends of the society to state their own recent action. Via ill at the last anniversary it was regarded by Many As both feasible and desirable that without at All trenching on the political relations of slavery certain moral duties growing out of its existence or moral evils and practical i moralities deplored by All evangelical christians and found occasionally or frequently accompanying if should be Dis a cussed in our publications and this without j losing sight of our original and governing j principle in the society a first organization a that its publications shall be a a calculated to a receive the approbation of All evangelical and the Confidence was sex. A pressed that the executive committee would a in their action respecting this matters exer a Oise such Wisdom As would promote the use 1 fullness of the. Society a throughout our whole for the successful maintenance of the dast and the Happy expansion of the future influence of the society we Haye relied on the sympathies prayers gifts and co operation of our Brethren in the South As in the North. If the evangelical christians resident in any portion of our wide country give not their Confidence Aid and personal influence our agents and our tracts our collectors and our volumes Are alike denied Access. We Haye received from churches and from individuals from men in All the strength and Fervour of their Best years and from christians arranging their worldly affairs in Prospect of death among our Southern Brethren a generous and Hearty support in the former years of our history. With equal Fidelity to donors and testator at the North or at the South the conductors of the society have aimed to dispense far and near their respective contributions for the Best interests alike of our common country and our common christianity. The publishing committee had at the time of the last anniversary a treatise on the a a duties of masters a under their consideration. It was composed of articles before issued by Brethren of various Evangeli Eal denominations at the South and was supposed to meet the views that Are pre sen Ted in the resolutions of that anniversary. publishing committee were not altogether unaware of the inherent embarrassments. Looked upon with some distrust at the South As the treatise might be because bringing a Northern imprint it was yet on the other hand equally evident that Many Northern friends of the society might object to it As recognizing a a duties in Hering in the relation of a a masters a that relation in their View being forbidden. Since the preparation of this treatise one of the authors from whose addresses or tracts it was compiled has been removed by death. Two others of these Brethren honoured and influential known As True friends of the society have judged it inexpedient in the Enkin led and excited state of feeling awakened both North and South upon. The various relations of this topic that those writings of their own which were to form a prominent portion of the treatise should be issued with a Northern imprint. They have accordingly interdicted on further use of the matter thus in addition from All quarters of our Southern Field we have received and from the tried and fast friends of the society expressions the most unanimous and decided that any publication by our press bearing upon the topic of slavery even though of Southern authorship and carefully kept within the terms of the resolutions of the anniversary could have no other result than precipitating the entire withdrawal of the South from co operation with the society. The new works would find no Gate of Access and the separation would henceforth exclude even our older issues by flinging a Quarter presumed to have become hostile to the interests of tire South. Of those accredited issues the sittings of a Rich evangelical literature in our own and in european lands books on which gods spirit has. Put his evident and gracious approval it seemed a sad necessity to be compelled to clog in any Way the circulation. From Maryland Virginia North Carolina South Carolina and Georgia from Alabama. Louisiana and Tennessee we hear but one testimony As borne by state Bra Neh a and auxiliaries by the so piety a a officers general agents superintendents and col porters by ecclesiastical bodies and by the religions press. Over the South we have now a virtual suspension of collections a cd if the present distrust and alienation but remain there must speedily ensue a withdrawal of col porters and distribution throughout our. Southern Field. We must surrender All. The Southern and southwestern states. To proceed is thus to palsy one whole Side of our institution. The. Committee have believed that the action and instructions of the last anniversary explicitly cherishing As they do the. Society a usefulness a a throughout our whole country Quot could not contemplate even on the part of those Northern friends most earnestly advocating them any revolutionary and disruptive change in the line of the society a policy cutting off from the society a portion of a a our whole country a so Large and in our past labors so largely blessed As the entire South. The publishing committee therefore voted with entire unanimity to arrest the Issue of the work that had been before them confidently believing that their action in the premises would commend itself to the society under the phases which the subject has assumed and the executive. Committee United in sustaining this As the Only present action conservative of All the interests and just to All the parties involved. It were a waste of the society a funds to Issue a treatise on Southern duties for which we could find no Southern readers and for the Sake of securing such Issue to forego deliberately and without explicit warrant from the society All farther Opportunity of sending thither Ward the Large body of publications we have hitherto under gods Manifest Blessing scattered there. To the farther developments of gods Good Providence and to the guidance of his spirit promised where reverently and humbly implored the committee no w refer this question meanwhile the things that make for peace a and aiming to secure the a a fruit of righteousness sown in peace of them that make publishing Gem.

We have dispatched our bravest and Best but the voyage is Long and november will have begun Ere that mighty Force one third of which would be so precious now can land on the shores of India the death of sir Henry Lawrence in a sortie made by him and his beleaguered band at Lucknow in the kingdom of crude is a great calamity. His administrative qualities were extraordinary and in Many respects he was the first Man in India. Lucknow is in the kingdom of nude whose population seem to have risen up almost to a Man against British authority. Its. A a annexation a by lord Dalhousie was justified on the ground1 of Mal of the worst character and the consequent misery of the millions under the Sway of licentious and cruel despotism. But the whole policy of that Nobleman As governor general was eminently an ambitious one and something like a Nemesis now brings retribution.

Although Lawrence fell at Lucknow in a sortie yet by the latest accounts that place still held out. In addition to this. General Havelock had Defeated the mutineers in three engagements inflicting heavy punishment at a Small jobs. These were the cruel men who massacred one Hundred and.

This suggestion however is not i presume Likely to be adopted. The great Eastern is certainly a wondrous Experiment to say the least. It will be a Little world in itself Able to carry ten thousand persons. I presume it will not be launched before next Spring. A curious plan for transmitting military signals by musical sounds has been lately brought by experiments before the favourable notice of the French emperor. The system is called telephonic and it reduces the transmission of signals to three sounds expressed by the trumpet the drum or the Cannon Quot or.

That gentleman has continued to preach at Surry gardens every Sabbath morning and at Park Chapel Southwark in the evenings during the whole of a the hottest summer known for years m England. Besides this he preaches either in or out of town almost every Day and sometimes twice a Day. His physical Powers Are wonderful and Bis mental concentration is something equally marvelous. The writer once asked him a a How and when do you study your sermons ? and the reply with mingled Gravity and cheerfulness was a a in cabs.

The Harvest although somewhat injured in the North of England by thunderstorms and heavy Rains will As a whole be most abundant thu while War rages in India and one form of divine judgment is upon us we Are spared from the terrible calamity of famine which once seen m a Man s lifetime As it has been in Ireland by myself is Graven so deeply into the tablets of the memory that it can never be thought of without a several parts of the country called a a largesse a. Prevails at the close of Harvest collections of Money Are made of Small sums from Farmers and shop keepers by the reapers of a particular District and the whole is spent in Wassail revelry and riot. Eft oits Are being made to Correct this evil and to make the Harvest Home to be a scene of cheerful and temperate festivity accompanied by religious services in Parish churches or other modes of expressed thankfulness to the g of of the seasons. There is a Little Book published Here entitled a a John l ast Orthe Christian Farmer which beautifully illustrates the influence of a godly Farmer Over Bis workmen and their families and exhibits a scene m England As morally Lovely As was witnessed m the Olden time when Boaz said unto his reapers. A a the lord be with you and they said. A a the lord bless thee. It is pleasing when one goes into the country districts to observe gleanings the fair image of the practical poor Law system. Divinely instituted among the jews and. Which has an i memorable prestige in eng. Land still preserved. Many a widow or orphan is thus relieved and on the scattered bands of gleaners still shines the warm Sun Shine which once invited to her Humble toil the Lovely Ruth m Bethlehem s Harvest Field. Poor Laws As such seem necessary in the present state of society but there is a virtuous poverty which Pines m secret which never applies for work House Relief and Fot this How precious the gleanings of Golden autumn the breaking of the Atlantic Carie on the second Day after the paying out a commenced on the Irish coast is traced by the naval officers to the Strain produced by the pitching of the ship and the too great velocity of the Cable As it ran out a not forgetting that the hands employed to watch its action were too few. Improve ments Are being suggested As to the controlling Power of the machinery and the utmost conf Denoe is Chen shed by the Best judges of ultimate Success the times of yesterday contains lengthened. Official communications on this subject. One writer proposes that the new Mammoth Ste Ana ship the great Eastern now fast a thrive . Is this marching on toward Fuller development than Ever yet realized and the Day comes when Quot All. Her Dis Cove nes shall be i the Iii a. The Pppe and his advisers Are taking Means if possible to carry out their chert a shed intention of subjugating to their no Solute control the Bishops and pests of the Irish roman Catholic Church. Or. Cullen As Legate has been Long prosecuting this scheme. With but partial Success. Many of the priests and some of the Bishops countenance. And use for their own purposes the National system of but it is against the mind of the Vatican that they should do .so., not Long since or.

The Genius of the British Constitution and a its Workings also modify a the Amis to a an exp tent sufficient to annoy but the Only True and final liberation for Ireland. Will be when through the Power of the word and spirit she shall shake the foreign spiritual Yoke imposed by Henry ii eight centuries ago and shall become a a the Island of saints Quot As m the Days of Patrick and Columba.

In a sense stronger and More prop Setio than a great austrian statesman he might say a a after me the one result of the Mutual concessions made at the late conference with Queen Victoria and her Cabinet is that if the elections in Moldavia be unfavourable to the Union of the a principalities As seems certain France will withdraw her pretensions m its favor.
