The remarks of your correspondent Quot Layman a in relation to the proper acknowledge ment of the Exigence and Providence of the supreme being Are highly commendable. I Herd is danger however that in his Zeal for a what is itself right and Good he Quot to Maji Mug a a a railing accusation where it a ought not to i i do not think the misters and Learned doctors of dive Ity who Dpi stated clerks prepareand1 publish it notices of the meetings of presbyteries have failed by omitting to insert formally the a Quot a. God to Quot give god the glory due unto his name i will state my reasons a 1. .1 think a a Layman interpretation of James in. 15 be ought to say if the lord win to shall live and do this or that a is entirely too sweeping too Indis Criminate the Apo the evidently refers to a special ease a in rejoice in your boast mrs All such rejoicing is evil. Surely our a stated clerks cannot be suspected of any such a a boasting. example which James rebukes appears to have been an intentional insult to the god of Providence and that of a very Aggra vat cd sort we will go to Day or to Morrow into such a City and continue there a Jem and buy and Soli and get i admit that if the stated clerk of our Church courts should pet Rosely and insolently omit All a a recognition whatever of a supreme being / As Layman says then they would fall under the reproof of the apostle. 2< but whale. Perfectly satisfies me that a a Layman a has stretched the meaning of the apostle James beyond scriptural limits is this the other inspired writers do not practice agreeably to his interpretation. For example Paul says to the rom ans a a whensoever i Lake my journey into a specimen. Spain i will come to you a 24. According to a Layman a Paul ought to have said a if the lord will i Witt come a unto you a so again verse 28�?�?o when therefore i have performed this 1 will come by you into Spaid a a not even a d. God willing j too in 1. Cor Xvi 12, a a As touch ing our brother apollos a he. Will come when he shall have convenient Paul does hot say d. Again Heb Xiii 23, a a know be that our brother Timothy is set Rit Liberty with whom if h e Home shortly 1 will see hero again paid omits Ted d. A a a makes no recognition of a super Etna being Quot i Grant that in a few other passages of the same general sort he expressly inserts a a if the lord will a and Sot Trust do our a a stated. Clerks j Many other circumstances of the same general character. 3. It is obvious therefore that the text James in 15, does not require us to insert a a if the lord will Quot a in All similar circumstances. The spirit that dictates such a recognition i a amp a code is always obligatory but the Mere form May often be omitted if Paul is Good authority As to the particular example of a a presbyter in notices a they strike me As of the same general nature with Quot Slavid s appointments a i will go into thy House with Burnt offerings i will offer Bullocks with a a open to me the Gates of righteousness 1 win go into the by find Praise the David omits the d. V., in these Dases. 4. Of a a Layman a is consistent he must require his pastor at each announcement of afternoon of i evening meeting to say a service this afternoon or evening if the lord will Quot d bes he a a stick to his text after this manner a and so when our general Assembly adjourns for dinner a a adjourned tjw. Meet Quot a. the afternoon at half past three o clock 1 it would not this rather tend to lower the dignity of the body As Well As destroy the solemnity of ctr Cavot ? i stated clerk of All the boards.

I a indeed if the Reader will take Down his a a minutes of the general Assembly for 1361,�?� and turn to Page 45.6, and run his Eye along there he will see fearful Blanks a figures dotted Here and there like islands in a wide sea. The vacant churches i find by consulting the minutes very Genera ally give nothing. Elders Why is tins ? is this taking the oversight of the churches As our a a books contemplates. These Are dry statistics. But they very interesting facts the above is Only Pes cation instead of leading us to look on hopelessly and listlessly should Lead us to a prayer and Effort to counteract the evil. The officers of our volunteers go out from a among us. We May bold them responsible for the licence which they May allow their men. If the every neighbourhood would take pains to let their officers know that their respectability a at Home after the War is Over will very much depend upon the moral state in which they bring their commands Home it might produce a Good effect. a. Ai saw the deserted fortifications at Colimbus with almost an emotion of pity for the mortification which their deluded builders must it have Felt. On leaving them without striking a blow. They did work enough there to have graded forty Miles of Ordinary Railroad. Their. Expenditure on torpedoes and infernal machines All left behind them a and now probably All discovered and rendered harmless must have been enormous you get however descriptions of these things from other sources and it is not necessary that i should repeat them. V we had an intelligent gentleman on Board who do passing the Field of b Elmont gave us an account of the. Special localities of that fight. It was one of the most daring actions of this present War and successful too. The Only Farist was that our troops did not immediately retire to their boats when they had burned the enemy s Camp. Their delay to pick up trophies re the enemy time to go Over from Columbus and attack them. A this was no doubt a Case. In. Which discretion would have been the better part of valor. A 1 j. A an insufficient salary for this Falls Little Short of one thousand dollars. I should like to write More in detail of this pleasant Surprise but i will Only add that it is a pleasant reflection to the writer that the master whom he so imperfectly serves Wili Reward these dear friends for All their kindness to him and his family during a pleasant ministry of six years. For these temporal gifts they shall receive spiritual blessings blessings flowing Onward in an Ever deepening and widening Channel forever. When with them he shall appear at the Gate of immortal life the blessed lord will give them a glad Welcome saying a a inasmuch Asye have done it to one of the.

Those facts were gleaned front the e1 reports of a presbytery in Western Pennsylvania supposed to be a fair specimen of the average ability of the a Church the air Hunt pm to �hureh1 member to All the boards was found to be forty two cents and a friction. The amount contributed to All religious purposes including a pastors salaries building and repairing churches &o., was found to be $3.05. This in the judgment of Tho writer was not a flattering testimonial. Yet compared with what Otheya Flave done it is at least very creditable allow me to pursue this line of inquiry a Little there can be no Harman reviewing published Quot reports. I will select at random from the Muhtes of the general Assembly a presbytery in Central Ohio near Columbus generally regarded1 As a flourishing Region of country.,.

Gayley of the Tun Chow Mission under of. Jan. 2d.1862 a we Are All so much better up Here than we were at Shanghai that it seems almost As though we had changed natures. Still i am far behind my old Home strength. We Are very Happy in our work f one old Man Over eighty years of age lately died we Trust a Christian. He became interested in the truth Early m the summer and came every Day to Dzao seen Sang our native assistant for instruction. We were . To admit him to the Church when he was taken sick and after about two weeks illness died. During his sickness he constantly professed his Faith in Christ yet in his delirium he fancied the was tormented Blythe spirit of a Fox which he thought visited him frequently. His daughter and grandson both Heathen encouraged the idea and one Day Dzao seen Sang found that he had sacrificed to the spirit to appease it. Though this made us very sad still we have Hope that the old Man was at part a Christian. This was done while he was delirious and. Probably More by his family than by himself afterwards he said he was not afraid of the1 spirit for he had committed himself entirely to Jesus. He knew he was about to die and desired Christian burial but his relatives would not allow it and of course could not compel them. Soho was inf red with Heathen rites but we know this will not affect his spiritual state if he1 fell asleep in Jesus. How. Great was gods mercy in thus lengthening out the old Many a life that he might hear the gospel. He j list had time to hear of the Only Way of salvation when his Long life was ended and he called away from Earth. If his soul is saved As we Hope it will be ample Reward for All the expense trial and suffer ing attendant on the establishment of our Mission Here. Or. Hartwell has also had the privilege of baptizing this teacher and our teacher is in a very hopeful1 state Oft mind.

A London March 20, ,1862. A debate on International maritime Law has occupied the Attey Tion of the House of commons two nights. The Resolution moved by Horsfall m p for Liverpool As 1 follows than the present state of International and maritime Law As affecting the rights of belligerent and neutrals is ill defined and unsatisfactory it and Calls for the Early attention �.of1 her majesty a the declaration of pans in 1856. Implied the sur Render of the tight or claim to sweep the Commerce of our enemies from the seas. The views of the government draw a distinction1 Between Quot ships and merchandise. The following from the Leeds Mercury will give your readers a better idea of. The discussion and its issues than i can pretend did do a. We have already surrendered our right to sweep Tho Commerce of our enemies from the seas and if Sueh an really amounts to political suicide the crime was committed in 1856 the question therefore is not whether awes shall give up the belligerent right of destroying our enemy s Commerce by sensing his merchandise upon the seas that question was wisely or unwisely Quot settled by our Quot government in the year 1856, and the Only Point no left for discussion is whether the Commerce of a nation at War shall be carried on under its own Flag or under a the Flag of a Neutral nation when we agreed that the Neutral Flag should cover enemy a goods we surrendered our right to make War against Commerce and Only retained our right to make War had the argument of the lord advocate against., giving up our Power to destroy our enemy a Commerce Hen expressed previous to the conclusion of the declaration of Paris,1 they would have had their Force but they seem strangely out of place when the questions at Issue whether the ? Erent shall he placed on the same too tag a his merchandise. The effect of the present state of. Maritime Lav is to throw All the carrying Trade of a belligerent nation into the hands of neutrals. War need not Stop a belligerent pc a com Merce which is the National life a blood its merely paralyses his carrying Trade which is. Of course a great misfortune but one not Likely to Havo any important effect upon the termination of the War. It is amusing under these circumstances to hear Tho a Hope that the Risavy of England will prove sufficient to protect our mercantile Marine m the event of maritime War. In such a Case our mercantile Quot Marine will need very Little protect Tion for. Our merchant ships a will remain a idly in port while the vessels of Neutral nations car Youri Commerce to their great advantage and our heavy loss. The Mere Rumor of War As experience has shown is sufficient to throw All our carrying Trade into the hands of foreign ship owners. For a web i missions,1 $.

It is the duty and privilege of All Chris Titis to follow our soldiers with intelligent sympathy and with prayer and that they May do so it is necessary that they know something of their condition i would not like to say any thing discouraging or defamatory of our volunteers among whom Are very Many of our Best men. A but there Are some things that May Well move our fears and excite prayer. A / comparatively few people know the e amount of exposure and inconvenience to which on soldiers Are subjected. 1 saw several Large steamers leaded with troops for the Tennessee River. They a filled All the lower deck where they could be allowed to stand were crowded thick in the Cabin and on the upper guards and on the Hurricane deck presenting the appearance often of a clustering swarm of bees. They have to pass a night often Sevy ral nights in this Way. Exposure to rain Dew coldly want of sleep living on cold rations the impossibility of being cleanly in their habits All conspire to Lay the foundation of disease morality suffers in such circumstances a men learn to push crowd bully and curse with fearful celerity.

To meet1 is in hand and a a on the Way a a Only 650,000 Bales this time last year 1,400,000 Bales could be calculated on. What makes the matter worse is that of the a Stock in hand Only 160,000 Bales Are american Cotton re of a which in Ord Ary years Are used weekly 33,000, and Are exported 7,000 Bales 4 Bere is a decrease at Liverpool of this Cotton of 847,000 Bales As compared with this time last year besides a probable reduction of -150,000 Bales in a the a stocks a pm spinners.
