Whole no. 639 time the presbytery took the matter in hand to unite the Field if possible and save missionary funds. Other Fields were treated in the same Way and a member of presbytery in each ease appointed to carry nut its wishes and Confer with the churches. He first Effort was to induce the people of a a a a to receive mr.-, Bat it was found impossible. It was then proposed to or. And the representative of the e Church to solicit the Church it k to unite for a definite time in supporting charge was to be vacant. This too was found impracticable. The representative of the e Church had Given the Assurance that the people of e were unwilling to continue for the presbyterian Banner. Fes Fias. Editors a some weeks ago appeared in your columns an article aed a Jane a on the fastidiousness of Grega tiros shown in their disposition to a none but a a first class there re truths suggested which it were Well the Church to consider. Congregations greatly injured by this fastidiousness to the a first class ministers a there pens to be no uniform Standard of judg a and classifying ministers. Often they i regarded As a a first class Quot who succeed securing prominent positions frequent Hose who will accept no other position lest and retiring men of real Worth and ability Are passed by and overlooked writer aided to organize a Church some Oths ago of a few members of very Lim abilities both pecuniary and otherwise obscure Village. To this Little Church the first class ministers really settled sry useful in an important neighbor in had preached once and a Lead an among them remarked a a he could Good Here we understand or. Is 1 minister and we could possibly 8100 to support however by Way or. Was soon reported by Ody not to be sound on a political too and be would not answer the Pur that Little Church of which brother one a has some knowledge has almost 1 out. No Man need feel greatly Trou-1 because some churches do not place i among the a a place More n talents or real Worth make men Oon sous. Let vacant churches accept to fully the services of any Good Sensi minister whom they May be Able to ainu treat him Well sustain him Well operate with him and strengthen his in it nce and they will find him the a a first Jgr minister for them. At the same in Oliero is propriety in the advice Ted in the beginning of a a Jane a Quot Epis not to Send to the new Fields of the set inferior ministers who cannot sue id elsewhere. If churches however despise gods miners because not highly gifted As orators a offend the author of the ministry d Are liable to be left to spiritual death is often the ease that All the advice of igbo ring pastors and of presbytery ails nothing to continue a worthy but unbeatable Man with such a people. Miners on the other hand Are sometimes labors but feeling under special obligation to him for his Agency in securing their interests they had retrained from expressing their dissatisfaction. He promised to apprise or. A of the state of things. Some months afterwards when another minister was proposed to enter the Field virtually. Vacant in accordance with his appointment the member of. Presbytery wrote to the session at inquiring whether the Way was open to hear the candidate and proposing that or. Might Seo the letter. After All he thinks he obtained in the discharge of Plain duty it or s ill will. So did the elder of the Church of e. But the candidate was heard was happily settled Over the whole charge and is doing Good. Notwithstanding a considerable debt on their Church and some other discouragements the congregations at e Are represented As very much increased and encouraged while or. A has engaged in another Field with fair prospects of usefulness. A the initials used in a a Jane so communication and some of the facts stated have made the impression that certain locations and individuals were intended and great injustice done them by a perversion and misstatement of facts. The main Points of a a Jane so communication irrespective of illustrations Are worthy of consideration. Let churches beware How they treat worthy ministers. But no minister need ask for the reasons Why the people Are dissatisfied with him. A minister of Christ must bold himself ready to go or stay to labor in this or that sphere however Humble just As providential indications May direct.1 if people Are unreasonable ungrateful and unkind his Reward is hereafter while they May be scourged. To what extent presbyterian authority should interpose in such cases is a very important practical question. Often it would be found on inquiry that some unreasonable disturber of the churches peace moved by private pique has been for months secretly and sedulously sowing the seeds of discontent and undermining the ministers influence. When he discovers a dissatisfaction discouraged and sad and indisposed to controversy and turmoil he is disposed at once to retire. It May be for his peace to do so but does not the Good of the cd Quot a Quot it of the wrong a. The hands of the presbytery is tire Iro ugh for a pastor to express a wish to resign his charge and the people Eon sent ? should not satisfactory reasons be demanded _ these suggestions Are submitted by one who claims to be Only a second class minister. giving place tote article alluded to we supposed it to be Bona fide the production of a Christian lady and intended to present Good thoughts on an important question. We had no idea of the letters by he &c., expressing persons or churches individually. We regarded them merely As used for illustration. We did so because such things Are not Peculiar to the West nor confined to localities. We have had a knowledge of just such things in the East. If however some gentleman As hinted above assumed a female name and took advantage of our columns to Deal in personalities he did a great wrong. A if any one has personal difficulties let him Settle them face to face. Such things should never go to the Church journals if we bad known or even suspected that a a Jane so article was intended to expose a particular minister or congregation it would certainly have been .

I find that travelling about especially in this new Rocky Mountain a country where the a a one thing needful a is generally so Little spoken of is not favourable to growth in Grace and especially is this so while we Are exposed to All Tho horrors and demoralizing influences of civil War.

One Young brother was so deeply wrought upon that while engaged in prayer he became so much overcome that he could not proceed and called upon another brother to close the prayer. There Are two weekly prayer meetings in Central City. And Quot although the Sabbath is not Well observed yet the religious interests throughout the More thickly settled parts of the ternary seem to be increasing and society rapidly improving.

Generally the preacher has to both a a blow and strike a people have been hard1 up a and hence it has been difficult or out of the question for them to do much toward supporting the gospel. Generally they will give much More to support a theatre than the gospel. Yet All through that Region we Grega Tjon toward their pastor and Quot his family and As your paper is devoted to Well doing i take the Liberty of making another request of a similar kind at this time.

Their National Pride is wounded and. Shocked by., such an assault for if Moses is thus demolished they themselves will be ground to powder they have thus a Nemesis coming upon1 them which in the tend May prove a bless ing in disguise.

There Are however Many for the Presby Terian Banner. Rejoicing in Christ. One of the Marks by which the apostle Paul distinguishes christians Phil Iii 2 is they a a rejoice in Christ the Christian like other men is known by a his Joy. The epicure delights in his meats and wines. The child. Of ambition has. His goal. Victory is the idol of the Soldier. The misers soul gloats Over the Prospect of More Gold.

The result of the first of these efforts was to raise the fund from �79,529 to �88,134, being an increase of about eleven per cent. The result of the latter movement 1854 was to raise the fund from �90,842 to �104,481, or an increase of fifteen per cent. The two efforts added Between them fully one fourth to the Gross amount of the fund. It might have been expected that these great efforts would be followed to some extent by a reaction but. It was not so. The higher level reached was in each Cash most firmly maintained the Stone did not Roll Down the Hill but a remained at the Point to which its and been rolled up. No fact perhaps in the history a of this great fund is More encouraging than the firmness and tenacity with which it has maintained the ground won by each successive Effort put Forth in its the article proceeds As follows i a a last near the dividend was -37.

He provided after the disruption of 1843, churches and manses for All the congregations on his extensive estates the manses alone being valued at �4000, besides a subscription to the general mans fund of ,00l. While the free Church was engaged in the great work of building about seven Hundred churches and manses the Marquis allowed a almost indefinite draught of slates from his quarries. He was a subscriber of �1,000-to the a new College at Edinburgh in which he took a great interest.
