Effii strange Quea Siodis brought before the a Hutch in such a form As to attract attention it is the Snoj Eckof an article in tha part Cion review a reprint of which a As been circulated from the office of the Board of education. The design of the article and its general bearing Are unquestionably Good yet it May be doubted whether the views it presents Are quite accordant a with the. Condition of things in the a a Hurej and still More whether Redl difficulties ure assigned to their proper cause and most of All whether remedies a a commended or practicable or adapted to in Case. A. A a it appears that the question has been raised As a Prudential one by members of the Church who i Jive been Liberal contributors to cause. They have noticed two facts and have thence inferred that there is a redundant Supply of mini site is in the Church that considerable number of our ministers Are without a pastoral charge., 2that when an eligible congregation becomes vacant Many ministers offer their services thereby indicating their Depieri to be employed either of these .fao.tsf, and especially both taken in connexion sufficient to Raibe the question i a Khatee we. Too Tawny ministers Quot a 1>1 Ammu i Idu a will id 1 vol. 1 no. 4. Pittsburgh saturday March 1, 1862. Whole Noj 492. Does not infuse itself into the argument of the water. Nor does it sustain the cause the writer truly says a a each Man must exercise his own judgment and his own Choice a a and a the churches need have no fear of being pestered much less disc phoned into giving to any cause which their reason and cons Euenee do not a if it be made to appear that we have not too Many ministers which it is not hard to do our1 Christian people As stewards of god will not withhold a their contributions question which is closely connected with both the education and the missionary work. They Are not however sufficient of themselves to warrant us in giving it an affirmative answer or in withdrawing or diminishing our. Contributions to the education cause. If led by Christian concern foe Topsey who have no religious ordinances to address it the unemployed with the inquiry Why stand be Here All the Day Idle ? and they should answer because no congregation hath called us the reply would be altogether pertinent hut it would not be either pertinent or just for other parties to allege that our asking the question implied a supposition that the holy spirit had called too Many men into the Woik of the Mlton Spry. It can scarcely be intended by the author of the article m the Princeton review that such a supposition Ever entered the Tain Sof those whose views he opposes. And yet it is remarkable what prominence and repetition this idea has in his article. A quite and logical would it be to claim that a sorrowful reference to nine Hundred congregations destitute of pastors implied a supposition that the holy spirit had called Tuo Many people into the Church. The facts Are facts a till though they May be ii logically used in arguments on the one undo or the other of this important discussion. If there is in fact which is admitted a Large number of Mim Steis unemployed and they Are. Able and willing to. Labor m the Church it scarcely seems to Square with the divine command or with Cointa in prudence to go on increasing their number unless proportionate efforts arc made at the same time for securing their employment. Nor is it enough to secure this result to Point them to the millions of people who have Nono to break to them the bread of life. How shall they preach except they be sent ? Thero they stand Able willing ready saying Send us discourage a to find their number rather than their facilities for employment increasing year after year. Neither is it sufficient a to secure Liberal contributions to the Educa Tion or to the missionary cause a to depict the Necess Itous condition of the world As Lyng As a Large number Ofinn Esters Are unwillingly Idle and Deot in to a a Cal Iron. The picture is gloomy Decd but the View of its reel Antholy details is rendered the less cheap and fhe less effective by the. Large group of the unoccupied figures that fill up jibe foreground. The True Way to secure ample reinforcements to the ministry is to employ those already in it. While Nola Tco one the considerate and conscientious Liberal hey of the Church May be expected to Papse. In its he a cation cause. A remove that difficulty and by Tolje one. Not both the missionary and i the education up Twiest Are promoted. A a. A the want of the world and the command of the head of the Church utterly preclude the idea that there Are too Many ministers the apprehension of a superfluity of labourers is p new fear if it really exists at All. Those whom the lord Calls he a ally not to the office Only but to its useful labors but we have the fact before our eyes,.thati there Are Many in the ministry who Are Mot in the work men who for aught that appears to the contrary Are As competent and As willing to labor As these who Ore actively engaged a hitherto hopeful and progressive liberality pauses at this sad sight Aud inquires Are we wisely directing our. A contributions to the increase of the ministry already encumbered with so Many supernumerary is 1 t ii tendency of this inquiry on the interests of the Church renders it too important to be neglected and the evident conscientiousness of it to say nothing of its seem my pertinence claims for it a consideration serious and. At least void of Punchar i Itable implications. The existing condition of Ati airs bodes injurious consequence to the Church unless it1 it can a be obviated whether there be too Many ministers or whether there Only seems to be. The supposition of a redundancy. Though erroneous. Would work i the same unhappy results As tue . Worse would doom the. Church to a permanent deficiency denied in the supposition that we have already an abundance. Considering the obligations resting on god s people and the needy condition of the worn it can soar oely be imagined that any intelligent Christian will say that the Charoll though she his done liberally has done too much or contributed too freely forc the advancement of Quot christianity. Whether her efforts have nil been wisely directed or proportioned May be a matter of i apprehend that it is w t of proportion As much a As want of eff Tate that lays our contributions open to criticism if the Means of sustaining Mem in top ministry be employed Ioir bringing to Loii Rinto it there is an error of proportion a lib cd pay be As disastrous a the interests of religion As a deficiency in. Either department a and a it May to. As real a diversion of funds from their proper design As if Uliey were i appropriated to any other p wit. A Sibile therefore,.according to the representation of the review Liberal contributors in , cause have indicated a up Cloae to withdraw or diminish their contributions to that interest we cannot think they will fail to turn them into the Mission a a Treasury to restore things a to what Toftey their True proportions both theses interests being mediate and auxiliary to Hod s great end and design. As 1 Havo said if Oafa hardly with Justice by alleged that they a think god has called ten Many men into fhe ministry so i add the writer of that article cannot seriously mean to charge those who a five been Liberal supporters of candidates for the ministry Quot with a wish a to Stop the supplies of the Board of education and to turn our then logical seminaries into manufactories and arsenals a or with the impious prayer a a stay thy hand o lord we hate already More no la in Loq than we know what to do Quot the strength of these expressions european .

A London Jan. 81,1862 the emperor or the Frinch has opened the legislative Chambers with a speech most Pacific and satisfactory in its character. He referred to the Happy and conciliatory results of the visit of the king1 of Prussia to Paris and no doubt it has had a tranquil Long effect on the germans. Napoleon the Iii. Differs a from Napoleon i in that even while he is very Solute and generally adheres to his resolve yet that he does Dot dare Fortune and Fate to the last extremity and is Wise enough to withdraw from positions which would involve his destruction. Thus die has Given die though not necessarily never to be attempted rather than that his dynasty or should come to grief to has i say Given up the idea of an invasion of England for the present. Furthermore he has put away among his papers charts and plans for a Campaign on a and Over the rhine1. And in. Matters financial he has shown singular self abnegation and Good sense in honestly confessing that there had been and rapid decline in the resources of the state thai he himself by his authorizations had contributed to it and that henceforth the legislature should control the finances with special exceptions and m a word that i no More debt should be contracted. A nor is it to be forgotten that m fould occupies the Post of finance minister against the wish of several of the other ministers of slate counts pers Guy and Walewski included. A As to Italy tic emperor uses language a which indicates How baffled he has been by the obstinacy of the Pope and cardinals even while he holds fast to his programme and desires a a i have recognized the kingdom of Italy with a the firm intention of contributing by sympathetic and disinterested counsels to conciliate two causes the antagonism of which everywhere troubles minds it is difficult to see any other solver of this gordian knot than the sword. The Pope will not yield voluntarily i -. America and France in their relations for the future have of much before the political world of Europe. There seems no doubt whatever that the Many, France and. The required for the Relief of the unemployed had greatly agitated the emperor and that he was desirous to join the British Cabinet m remonstrances with regard to the blockade of the South. But it is equally certain that the British Cabinet has not had any designs of the kind and that it has endorsed the Opp sons of the great mass of the nation in declining.,to take any step such As was suggested. And one fruit of this As Well As of further reflection is seen1 in the following words of the Imperial sep Elia the civil War , has come to Compromise gravely our commercial interests. However As. A Long As the rights of neutrals must confine ourselves to wishes that Chese dissensions May a Colliery Accident a briefly alluded Toun the postscript of my last letter a on tues to excite the utmost lamentation throughout the country. 219 men and boys perished and the scenes of agonizing grief in connexion with the desolation of wives children &e., of the dead have been harrowing beyond description it now Elearly appears that there was a considerable leaven of True piety among the men who were thus suddenly taken away and that previous to their deaths in the pits prayers were offered Christ was preached and poor sinners had time to look for mercy from the merciful redeemer. On the body of one of the foremen was found a memorandum written in Pencil thus a a Fri Day afternoon at half pm st. One Edward Armstrong Thomas Gladstone John Hardy and others taken extremely ill. We had also a prayer meeting at a Quarter to two when Tibbs Henry Sharp amp cd a this sentence is incomplete a Tibbs exhorted us again a underlined by the Winter it was on the night of the Day when this prayer meeting was held that death seems through poisonous gases a to have numbered All his victims. Poor boys had crept into their fathers bosoms and thus love looked they were discovered stiff Andi cold. A a a the1 excellent Bishop a of Durham who has been indefatigable in the Consolation of the mourning said at a Relief meeting at Newcastle on Tyne where four thousand pounds was failed that he had no do ubi Many of the men Weie True christians the primitive methodist ministry is peculiarly adapted to the mining population and seems to have accomplished a gracious work among the men who have perished Che funeral was a thrilling Seene. Seveiri coffins were taken out of one House a father and six sons one other besides the victims was buried on the funeral Day it was the wife of one of the lost men whom he had left lying in a he last stage of. Con sumption. The news reached her that he was gone she languished ,.and was interred beside her husband. There wore six thousand persons present at the funeral and in an important sense it in a be said that the whole nation with the Queen As chief Mourner was there m heart our beloved Sovereign wrote a most touch ing letter to the poor widows the Reading of which greatly comforted them and she sen two Hundred pounds declaring that her own misery Only made her feel the More deeply for them. The Lack of two shafts in each pit common All Over the mining counties a the occasion. Of this hav to and the government. Is already taking. Steps toward legis lation to meet the a a Pijie Trent had arrived a Southampton with i a messes. Slidell and Mason of Hoard there was a crowd assembled to see them but in Here was no demonstration of any kind. Our press has1 unanimously deprecated anything of the kind and the South is by no Means in Good odor the daily new has been effectively dealing with letters apologetic and explanatory written by or. Yancey and Given him a quietus Hii attempt to show that when he moved in the a a a Confederate Congress Quot that the acts should be repealed which a hut the ports to a he slave Trade traffic he did not me Kef thereby that the South should resume the slave Trade is contemptible to a degree and Lias been thoroughly exposed. A a. The. Pope is As a Obsta Nate As Ever. So late As the 11th inst., a dispatch was sent by the Frenchi foreign minister to Rome urging on the holy see the necessity of resigning itself to a a the a lesson of exp. Nency a and that As the Pope Hope for .helpj/it., was his in Terest to negotiate with the Cabinet of Italy the Pope a said a a let us wait for events a a the old Story a a Rusticus expectant Dum Defluri farms at Ille,.labitur it Labeur i in Omune to Lubits cerum.�?�. But Antonelli the real Sovereign at Rome a treats the Imperial proposal with proud Defiance even while a a thanking the French government for the affectionate interest shown by it the Cardinal both cardinals and Pope Are bound by oath never to cede any part of the territory of the Church. A a what next a we ask. Gan Andi will France afford or endure to keep its army at Rome the Cost of which since 1848 has been at least sixty millions of francs the emperor will keep Italy a quiet for the present. France itself wants repose an order to recover itself financially. A a a a a a a a 1 a some that the Pope is ill. One of his agents the president of the civil tribunal at Rome has been assassinated. This is not the Way to secure a Liberty it always retards it the a a non possums a position of the court of Rome has answered its design hitherto us after All but like a Barrier dam. So feeble that when the tide rises to its flood the inundation will be As wide and destructive to the Temporali papacy As have4>een the sweeping away of the Holland Dykes by the raging on Rushing Muyr Der Zee. A. A treachery to truth from a. Nonconformist few is shown in the sympathy expressed for those clergymen who Quot have the face to stay m the Church of England while denying the foundation truths embodied in her articles Rand creeds to which they have Given their a a unfeigned consent assent a and adherence. The demoralization of mind implied m the attempts to defend their position As tenable is one of the most painful features. Their counsel in the court of Arches before the world the most daring assertions with a a directly rationalist tendency. But we find also As i have said that the Star and dial which whenever if Toebes on religion is sure to have the inspiration of the a a Rivulet a nonconformists and of David Thomas of a a the homilest.,�?� is Ever and anon writing in favor of these Aioli heretics. The a Bishop of Salisbury a by punch now ridiculed As a a the Shepherd of Salisbury Plain a who is Only doing his duty when he prosecutes or Williams is a a an accuser of the it has the boldness to bring up the memories of the two thousand ejected ministers As auxiliary to a bad cause which if its Serpent like error Shad appeared.,in their a Days would have been by. The Heel of a Nghi eos Star pronounces the authors of the a essays and reviews a a As a a the richest ornaments of the Church universities and schools of the establishment a and it exclaims a it is these who Are now cited by lawyers at the instigation of Bishops aurd in danger of condemnation to shameful >1 silence or to ecclesiastical exile Well if they Are True prophets and Havethe a Liberty of prophesying the moment the establishment will not the shame rest upon them if theyer to the churches bread and yet lift up the Heel against her ? and As to a a Eceles a tical exile a does not conscience demand that these men shall be self exiled ? the Hope undoubtedly is that by staying inf possible the leaven May. Have time to spread and la that if the final court of Appeal can be induced to give negative school As it formerly endorsed both baptismal regeneration teaching and its opposite then m due time these essayists shall become dominant and some of a their corp Hae shall occupy Ligh a places on the Bench the worst of it is a that men who do not go so far As these writers really endorse and encourage their errors by their sympathy and by being at heart under the Baleful influence of a re fined latitude arianism which totally in. Nores the Stem realities of guilt and de a Gravity and the consequent necessities of. Sacrifice and Sanctification. Of the use which the prosecuted now make of the Bible the following is the new doctrine propounded by the stari a a Theyra not it the expositors of oracles de slivered by a fixed1 and infallible authority but the diligent teachers of what they Eon seen piously believe. Let not1 the civil magistrate be called upon to deprive of his status and his Means of living a Clergyman who differs from other clergymen on Points on which no two educated men Are precisely a a a or Campbell of the British Standard thus Anim adverts on this language a a this is the very doctrine to meet the ease of these clerical infidels. Should a Clergyman renounce All that is True and All that is holy inspiration ghost and god still let him enjoy his f status and Means of most benevolent this is rather say most ridiculous most absurd and most wicked declarations so fraught with Jug nit Ance with stupidity and impiety while they Geneve the righteous and disgust men of sense Are but too Apt to Pervert the simple and uninformed who have still to learn the alphabet of chistian doctrine and ecclesiastical policy.the breaking up of the establish men i is far More Likely to a come from within than from ,assaults., not the vigorous and incessant efforts of a a the society for the liberation of religion from state control a Are not increasingly formidable. The ban dog together also of non-1 conformists with the avowed intention of abolishing Church rates is a step toward the abolition of the establishment is to be much appreciated As it has struck terror into Many churchmen a heart and will be prosecuted with a almost paralleled Persy Terenee and with a Stem pm pose which will not yield to concessions or Blandishments.
