Are i Oil galled to the ministry ? the duty of every Christian to examine himself whether he be in the Faith is one of Universal acknowledgement among the people of god. The fact that a Man is in communion with the visible Church presupposes that he has duly considered whether he has been called into the kingdom of Christ by the holy spirit and that he often reviews the evidence of which at first he rested the conclusion that he was indeed a child of god. This is All right and Wise but we Are afraid that there is another question very closely connected with the interests of the kingdom of Christ in this world equally obligatory and claiming no less our most Earnest consideration which a Large number of Christian men either never consider at All or else consider very superficially. This question is the one placed at the head of this article. It is our purpose to Call to it the attention of two classes of a christians 1. Those who have already considered it and having decided in the affirmative have entered upon a course of preparation. 2. A those who have never a considered it at All. To the former we would say but Little at present except to counsel them that they frequently review the ground upon which they have concluded i that they have been called of god to preach the Unsearchable riches of Christ. Dear Brethren if it behoves a Man often to inquire into the foundation of his own Hopo of heaven surely it becomes him diligently to inquire whether he is called to an office the1 function s of which Are so intimately connected a with the eternal happiness or misery of others. It you have been really a ailed by the holy hint to this office you will often ask As did the apostle of the gentiles who is sufficient for these thing who is sufficient to exercise the functions of an office from which Are the Issue of eternal life or eternal death ? Young Brethren you who Are engaged m preparing for the work of the ministry Yre beseech you m the name of the master that you consider again whether you Are called to be ambassadors for Ohnsta. It is he Vever. To those christians Young men who have never considered this question at All that. We propose now to present it and at the. Very outset we would inquire How it has it ome to pass that you have never considered a question so Mam Westly associated with the interests of All that you profess to hold dear i How Oomes it that the Foremost of All Tho instrumental ties ordained of Chest for the ingathering of his wandering sheep and the spiritual nourishment of those Aheady Gith ered has secured so Little of , that you have never inquired whether you might not be a chosen vessel to Bear the name of your Saviour far hence to the gentiles if the very Foremost purpose i of your first love in the Day of your Espousal n to Tell others of the Saviour you had found How is it that you have never asked yourselves individually the question a a May not this be the business of my life a it 1 Mark it Well we Are not now addressing those who have examined this question and decided in the negative. We Are assuming that you have Nevei weighed the matter at All and what we would know dear Brethren is simply this How it is i that the question has never forced itself upon you we confess that we Are at a loss to discover How any Young Man Over whom the Saviour has thrown the Mantle of his righteousness freely pardoning All his sins and into whose soul he has breathed the spirit a of peace and love and so ship. Can fail to1 ask himself the question am i not called to proclaim this 1 Saviour to perishing sinners Quot we know of no solution consistent with the assume a Tion of the vital christianity of a Young Man except this that he has at once entered upon the service of Christ in some of the Many other departments of Christia labor and has become so engrossed with work connected with the Progress of. Christ a kingdom that he has lost sight of the claims of this question. Regina log this As the True solution of the Enigma vye would ask the attention of All who have neglected the question irom such causes to one or two considerations. 1. God has not left it with the individual believer to choose in what capacity he shall serve him. This is a recognized principle of the divine administration both under the old testament and Quot the new. He who ordained the offices of prophecy Priesthood and kingship. Under the former dispensation and designated men to exercise the functions of these offices also claims it As his under the gospel dispensation to ordain offices and Dall and qualify men to Hll them. In View of this unquestionable principle then Clear Brethren we would ask who has chosen your present spheres of Labory yourselves or Christ if you have chosen for yourselves in what capacity you shall serve is it not Manifest if the principle assumed be a valid one that you have usurped one of Christ a own prerogatives ? can you conceive of any possible Way of escape from this fearful conclusion if it he True that it belongs to Christ to make the Choice a which you have made Independent of his counsel if you have never considered in what capacity Christ has designed you should serve and have consulted your own taste or convenience in determining the question is it not Manifest that you have conferred with flesh and blood a instead of consulting the head whose prerogative it is to assign to each member and office in the mystical body ? a a a. 2. The second Point to which we invite your attention is the character of the signs by which the vocation of a Man to the ministry is indicated. Christ in Call i ing. Men into the ministry since apostolic or primitive times docs not designate them or indicate his purpose by miraculous endowments but by gifts which May he overlooked both by their possessors and by others. This lays upon men the onus of a strict investigation both in reference to themselves and others whose credentials it May be their duty to examine. If it were the won of the churches head to designate the her aids of the Cross by gifts of Healing or of tongues Aman such Manifest indications of a Call to the ministry we incur no guilt by once the consideration of this question. He might conclude in the absence of miraculous gifts that he was not called to the office of an ambassador. But As the gifts by which the master indicates his future ambassadors Are not miraculous there cannot to such prompt and facile decision. This will be All the More Manifest by reference to these gifts. Aptness to teach capacity for ruling Well blameless Ness of character vigilance sobriety modesty hospitality Benevolence patience Gravity Are among the endowments of. A Christian minister. It is Manifest that there is nothing miraculous in these qualifications and it is equally Manifest that the Man who possesses them All in the happiest combination is most Likely to be the least aware of the fact. Now dear Brethren in this lies your danger. As the Jato furnished by the holy spirit As the ground upon which a Man is to conclude whether1 he is called to teach the gospel Are not miraculous endowments is it not clearly possible that you May have overlooked qualifications which would warrant the conclusion that you have been called to the ministry if so then you May be1 engaged in the prosecution of a calling to which you have not been called and May be guilty of despising your High vocation As an ambassador of Christ. It is not our purpose to impress you with the idea that even in this Posi Tion you1 Are not serving the master. We Are ready to concede that you Are and willing to recognise the sacrifice which you May Lay upon the altar. But the Point we wish to urge is this that it is not out prerogative to choose in what department of a labor you May Seive. This belongs it Christ the head and is a prerogative which he will not give even to a member of his mystical body. It is therefore your duty to ascertain what his will concerning you is. Your proper attitude is that of Saul of Tarsus when arrested by the Saviour a Loid what Wilt thou have me to do a and As your sphere of service is not disclosed by special revelation a you ought As you value the favor of Christ at once to apply yourself to the examination of the endowments which the head of the Church has bestowed upon you the nature of the endowments will determine the question of duty if you have the gift whereby Christ is wont to designate his ambassadors then you Are called to the office of an ambassador and Are bound to prepare for the discharge of its duties. Your first duty therefore is to consider for yourselves individually the question a a am i called to preach the gospel if you never1 have considered it we counsel you to begin the investigation and foreign record.

Yours in haste . Troubles itt Missouri. The following from Sparta mo., will give our readers a Little knowledge of the troubles of Christian Brethren and help them to appreciate their own Home comforts dear sir the past year has been one of. Great trial in this state especially to those of is who have had the courage to remain Loyal to our general government. We have passed through Many difficulties and we do sincerely Hope and Pray we May never have to experience the like again. And not Only in a political Point of View have we had trouble but also in our Church. Our Church is but Small Only Twenty one members and All have been and a re now firm friends to the cause of the Union and to our beloved general Assembly. But our misfortune was last Spring to employ a minister As Supply who was a secessionist both in regard to our general government and to our general Assembly. He preached to us till november when we differed so far from him that he had. To leave and now we Are without a minister to break the bread of life to u3, and god Only knows when we a will have another. I Trust that in his own Good time and Way he will a Send us a faithful pastor to keep us a from wandering from the fold. What makes this Case worse in our View is that this same preacher was born in Pennsylvania and raised in Ohio and we think that any person born and raised in those states with the advantages they afford both civil and religious is surely far left to himself when he will turn rebel to our common country. But this Many a misfortune was to marry Kentucky lady with a few slaves and we supp deep that accounts for the course he has taken. He has been in this state Twenty years and has received from the Board of Domestic missions from �150 to �200 per year and has now turned against the Church that has made him what he is. These things ought not so to be. We have taken your paper for about seventeen years. We prize it highly and especially the course you have pursued since the rebellion commenced in our once Happy country. A our political prospects a re brightening in this state and we Hope if it is the. Will of a kind Providence that on Federal troops will soon a be victorious and the stars and stripes again wave Over every state and territory that belongs to our common country.

Tion of two papers one of which i informed you i sent to one of the soldiers of the 2d regiment n. J. Volunteers do will just a. Copy a part of the answer i received from s him on the reception of the paper. After mentioning the reception of several papers which he valued very highly he says a a a but i must say that the greatest treat 11 have had m the newspaper line was the j arrival of some copies of the presbyterian Banner a paper the Reading of which i have enjoyed since its first publication until last Spring. With what eagerness i examined it and with what satisfaction i a a found it to be the same old paper that it used to be How often have i thought of the Banner and wondered whether it remained the same 1 whether those valuable and interesting letter beaded London a and signed a j. were still to be found in it. And How pleased was i to see1 the same familiar heading and Quot the same signature attached to just such letters As i expected to find if -1 found any from him 1 used to be indebted to a j. and the banners for a much reliable valuable and interesting information Quot from across the Ocean which i could never find m the same Compass in any other correspondence or in i any other paper then i could always a oly i on a j. s a statements not but that he was liable to be mistaken but i venture to j say he Seldom makes a statement of any kind that any one. It is just like him to say All he has to America in a few words but those few words seem to express As much As could do. Thau the editorials were read with great interest and then again noticed other familiar signatures Asi j. Elm a amp a. One article which interested me As much As any other was a letter from a Mcd a dated a Bangkok Siam.

A it must be confessed the events of the past year have presented some new phases in the presbyterian Church of which your paper is an Organ and your correspondent a presbyter. It May he As we Are informed it already is at the South that the Way is preparing for a re Nion of the two branches at the North. But of this i do not design to speak particularly at a present. There Are to our own Church which Are of great interest and which will come up for adjudication and discussion at the next meeting of our general the subjects of the boards and the finances of the missionary societies in particular will require much attention. Our Home missions Are greatly curtailed when there is the greatest need of them. Other denominations Are occupying Fields All ready for the Harvest among the late slave population in North and South Carolina and very soon by a the signs of the times a there will he under our own government a vastly larger number of this class than there is at present. I have no doubt but that it would greatly redound to the Good of our Church and the temporal and spiritual welfare of this population if we could immediately Send i number of missionaries into this Field. Then clerk of the Assembly is no longer among is. He has left for the South and we Are informed is already occupying a position in the Southern Church. We shall have to select a new clerk and when selected he will have a double amount of labor to perform namely to bring up arrears and to discharge present duty s it seems a fitting that the new. Occupant of this office should be selected from the same City that furnished his predecessor. The boards Are chiefly Here Andi Here the records have Long been a kept and this will Long continue to of a great Centre of is always Well to look ahead a Little and prepare for the faithful discharge of the duties which will be devolved upon us and these hints Are merely thrown out to further such business.

Geneva january 23,i 1862dear sir a there arc few things in Christian life As the Union of by Effren to glorify a Mieir either by proclaiming his eternal truth or by showing their respect for those of his servants whom he has honoured by making instruments of Good on Earth. The evangelical christians of Many different nations who assembled at Geneva in september last rejoiced in feeling the deep and living Unity which they had amongst them through jeans their head and they manifested this brotherly Union by voting the adoption of a Resolution which proposed the erection of a memorial to the reformation and to the great. Reformer of Geneva. You May remember dear sir that on september 6th, the lecturer whose subject was the character of Calvin reminded his audience that in two years and a half viz., the 27th of May 1864. The third Centenary of the death of the great reformer would occur and it was proposed that on that occasion the blessed work of the reformation of the 16th Century should be called., to mind and that to celebrate it some Monument should be erected to the memory of divine who did so much to restore the pure Light of the gospel to the Church. The nature of the Monument was not determined but the general proposition was agreed to by the Assembly with cordial unanimity. We need not be surprised at this for if the lord commanded his people Israel a a to remember the Day in which they came out of Egypt out of the Riouse of bondage for by strength of hand the lord brought you out of this place a we should not forget the Days when the lord brought our fathers out of the egyptian bondage of Rome into the truth and Liberty of the gospel. It is because they would not forget those Days of. Deliverance that our Brethren United with us1 m voting a it memorial to the reformer and we should be Lippy to see you dear sir and Many other friends Here on the 27th of May 1864, to celebrate with us the Day on which As it is simply and nobly expressed in the registry of the Geneva consistory a a John Calvin went to god Quot a this Short notice being the Only mention made m that document of his death. The commemoration of calving a death should not however consist Only in a meeting of Christian Brethren we contemplate something of a More durable character and which might be the Means of lasting Good to future generations. A committee Lias therefore been formed of minis i ters and laymen belonging partly to the National Church and partly to the free Church with the View of carrying out the Resolution of september a and this committee has Obj missioner us to write to you dear. Sir to ask it you to assist us in this work. A we wish m the first instance to have your advice As to the kind of memorial which it would but a Well to erect and also of the use to which it should be assigned. A we do not think of erecting a statue for such a Monument would have been repugnant to the Humble reformer who desired there might not even be an inscription on his Tomb. A Friend has suggested that the memorial should be Aii Hospital to be Pond noted on Christian principles Calvin himself having offered to preach to the perceive our project is but in its infancy. Any suggestions you May offer will to Welcome whether with reference to the project itself or to tie Best Means of carrying it out. Our great. Reformer had Grace Given him to do great things for the Benefit of the human race. Calvin held up on High the Standard of the Giloly scriptures of god As our Rule of Faith he sounded their Depths and Drew from to Liem the Treasury of Tho Unsearchable riches of Christ he showed in their Unity the great doctrines of truth he was like st. Paul the preacher of Grace he urged the necessity of individual conversion and of presenting ourselves a living sacrifice holy,1 Aoee Pablo unto god he tried to unite evangelical christians in a tie Bonds of Charity and Concord and now in the nineteenth Century the doctrines which he Drew from the scriptures Are preached throughout the whole world. All who love the memory of Calvin join in raising an Humble Monument to him on the shores of the Lake where he fixed his Hoino at a the foot of the snowy Alps which he gazed upon with May they All receive in their hearts the words which he so often repeated to his contemporaries a a no other teaching than that of the word of god. No other merits than those of the a Cross of Christ. No other Sanctification than that of the holy if these great truths could be made to Shine in Many a hitherto dark place it cud raise a Monument such is Wouldhave been a dear to the great reformer.

A it William Dick amp on pastor. Private Chanty. Our idea would rather be to erect in some Central situation a Hall for Public meetings and which might also be used for preaching the gospel to the working classes. Ground rent being High at Geneva it was proposed to take advantage of it tie lower Story for school rooms a to accommodate week Day sunday and evening schools. The building would thus become with god s Blessing an instrument of evangelization in the District where it would be erected. The site for this building would probably be on the Tive gauche at a Short distance from the Lake. It is the part of the town most in need of such a place of meeting. On the facade we propose having an inscription something like the following. A 1a a Salle de la reformation Elev a 3.

Which we desire May become by the Blessing of it god the Means of bringing Many a to the knowledge of those great living and eternal truths which Calvin loved. Our Genevese Brethren will we Are convinced a contribute liberally to a building which it is hoped will be is. Work of National usefulness but As England Scotland prance Holland Germany and. Even India and America acknowledge Calvin As to Weir teacher we Are sure they will not be backward in showing their grateful recollections of his labors. We ask of god that the execution of the proposition of the 6th of september May be to his glory that it May strengthen our love for the cause of the gospel and of the blessed reformation and May be a Means of Blessing not Only to us but to the Many strangers who visit our City.

Rev. , Belfast. It will be observed that a member of the established Quot thu Rob of the Canton of Geneva signs this document. He is a Type of the rising tide of evangelism in that old fortress of truth and a pledge and Earnest of the Day when the Cathedral where the doctor of the reformed Faith a and As such recognized and honoured in the English universities and All Over a europe�?shall1 once More in spirit exercise a Legal Sway by the pure preaching of the Yord in tie Niobie Cathedral which once echoed to his Clear voice and when a hushed multitude sat at his feet. While professor Gaussen gives his name and approval to the document i think it us questionable from internal evidence a that it was written by do Aubigne himself and by him alone. A Els han4 those words so analytical and distinctive in their structural As the essence of calving a teaching and that in a contrast not with romanism alone but with lutheran ism and every form of priests my a no other hacking than that of the word of �6hd a 0 Vikor merits than those of the. Gross of Christ no other Sanctification than that of the holy spirit a How thoroughly do they bring out alike the style and the sentiments of the illustrious historian of the reformation and How far removed from party spirit is the spirit which breathes throughout the whole document in truth i am persuaded that this Appeal will awaken a Hearty response not from calvinists strictly so called or from presbyterians Only but from evangelical christians generally. The proposal too is eminently practical and the idea of it gives us a fresh glimpse of the Loving aggressive spirit of a revived evangelism at Geneva. A a new Era in. Religion was inaugurated there so says a competent witness by the conference. Colonization has been favourably brought before the Public in connexion with an anniversary banquet of the australian association. The occasion was the 75th anniversary of the foundation of the australian colonies. The Duke of Newcastle one of the speakers remarked that the australian colonies possessed a population of 1,250,000 and a Revenue of the comparatively enormous amount of ��6,500,000. They carry on an Export Trade which occupies 1,500,000 tons of shipping while their imports Are Worth �25,000,000, of which Rio less than �16000000 come from tie Mother country. Within the last ten years no less than �100,000,000 Worth of Gold has been exported from Australia and principally to this country. During that period also the number of acres under cultivation in those colonies a Rose from 60,000 to 300,000, and the Export of Wool had increased in value from �800,0,00-to �2,000,000. The Duke concluded by saying that our object was to govern our colonies by affection and that he hoped that the Day would never come when a single red coat should fire shot or Point a Bayonet in hostility at any British vital statistics As ascertained m Scotland present that country in a s very favourable Light. In. Reference to the productiveness of marriages some curious facts have come out. In preparing the Glasgow table one Mother who was Only 18, had four children a one who a was 22 had seven children a a and of two who a were Only 34, one had thirteen and the other fourteen children and on the other hand two women became 51, four at 52, and one in the 57th year of her age. The proportional mortality a mtg women is a than that of men. There being no account of religious profession in the scottish census. It is worthy of notice that in Scotland in 1856, of which the records Are now furnished out of every Hundred marriages forty seven were celebrated by clergymen of the est table shed Church Twenty two by the free Church fourteen by the u. P. Church nine by the r. C. Church not quite two by the episcopal Church. These numbers Are considered by Many is roughly to Indi Cate the a proportion of the population attached to each denomination. However the non Church going population Are nominally reckoned As belonging to the establishment and just like a similar class in England they go the Parish Church to be married whereas the Bona fide people of the free and a. , go to their. A a own in English parishes there is Many a Man who could say As has been said Ere now a a i have never been at Church but twice in my life once to b e christened and next to be married a and a then he adds a a a i shall be there Whent am burned.�?�. Land is ahead of england�?88 per cent of the men married and 76 per cent of the women were Able to sign the Register. In one year besides emigration beyond seas a Large As about 13,000 left Scotland for England and Ireland. A a our Northern neighbor a says the times a sends us in this immigration Many Cool Clear Heads she can boast and prove by tables and returns that brain diseases Are very a much less prevalent and. Fatal in Scotland than in England a fact of which it would be interesting to know the cause. The int habitats of towns in Scotland arc Cut off by Hiber Cular diseases in twice the proportion of those in the country a circumstance which seems to favor the doctrine that they Are diseases of debility and imperfect assimilation. Of the excessive mortality of towns beyond that of the Rural districts nearly half occurs among infants under five years is one of the animal pastimes a on Maundy thursday by his holiness the Pope and anathema a a has been Ever a so Nee the Council of Trent cd Quot even earlier a watchword of the system. But one of the newest and most bitter bits of cursing is that just emitted from the fulminating manufactory of m. Louis Ven lot formerly editor of the now suppressed uni yers. He is a kind of Demoniac Ultra Tanist and so in two volumes which he entitles a the perfume of Rome a in this Case the fragrance is very supper like lib comes Forth with malediction of extraordinary fierceness. It As to Cavour he was not merely a moral monster but a physical one. His head his features his bust his legs his spectacles Are mocked at and Piedmont is sufficiently punished for its crimes by having his statue on her soil. But the person on whom he empties the full vials of his Wrath is father Passaglia who As you Are aware Lias published a work proving that the temporal Power is not a Dogma of the Church. When he Speaks of the Learned Jesuit he gets beside himself and raves like1 a maniac a but Here a he cries a is the real infamous wretch in comparison a with whom All others seem innocent. Here is the monster More formidable than fire worse than the Pagan and the renegade. This1 is the priestly enemy of the Church the parricide the Judas still wearing the Robe of the apostles his full of the. Divine mystery. Infamous wretch we will not despise you whatever the pal triness of your mind crime is in your heart and this crime is too great.
