Also a its action on the state of the Conn try As follows a Synod would record its full satisfaction with of the. General Assembly on. The state of the country recognizing in it the a a assertion of the right and duty of the Church As a Church to hold Forth id the face of All men the truth and Law and to testify against All infractions of that Law whether by rulers or people and at the same time believing that the actual condition of our country demanded the Frank avowal of a Ouri adherence to that government through which under gods hand and guidance our. Liberties As citizens and our privileges As a Church have been secured. While Eye say this deplore the fact that several of our Southern presbyteries have regarded spoken of As unjust and unwarranted Assumption of ecclesiastical an Hority As though it were designed to alienate Southern churches from our Fellowship or our affection such being altogether foreign to our interpretation of it. A invitations were received by Synod to visit several of the Public institutions of the state. Many members of Synod visited the Penitentiary also Camp Thomas under the charge of col. Carrington there was Little business before Synod aside from the usual routine and the meet ing was pleasant and harmonious. I Forward for publication the narrative of the state of religion. After the usual vote of thanks to the Westminster Church and the citizens of Columbus who so kindly had entertained its members Synod adjourned to meet at buoy us on the second thursday of Occo Ber 1862, at 7 p. M. A. A narrative a a to narrate the True state of religion within so Large a District As that comprised in our Synod its growth fruits and influence upon the world would he no easy task even if we had All the interial before us. But the difficulty is greatly increased by the fact,., that from one Hundred and fifty churches of this Synod Only forty two reports have been handed my we Are thus left to conjecture the spiritual a condition of a Large majority of our churches. ,. And we pareded to presume that most of these non reporting churches could they a get heard would say there has been no special interest in for a Church As Well As an individual that has been revived is ready 4o say a a come a Allye that fear god and i will declare what he hath done for ,. From a careful perusal of the Quot reports before us we present the follow my facts and reflections. It. And first let. Us look at some of the unfavourable indication True we Are in looking too much to the dark Side Quot and Over estimating Che discourage merits. A a when Zions ship is rolling among the Breakers or dashing Here and there amid storms and surges Jas she now is wended not expect to see her floating As gracefully a making so ooh headway As when Quot she be of this subject and see that the going resolutions Are faithfully Obed.

And i whereas the requiring that we a a remember the Sab Day to keep it is a is prof god Ess honouring to him than need Tel to to in All its departments civil or1 Mili while needful to the religious infer Lof every individual therefore l resolved that this Synod have Lead no displeasure the a general order under a or general Mcclellan requiring its of it Mee in All the Camps m his depart phed that this Synod respectfully i amp Nestly request the governor of the i of Ohio and All others having con a of this matter in our Camps to Aid in erasures that will give to our soldiers facing our Brothers and sons every far. For the Observance of Ihu to. Holy Day. I ending from them no military duties on Day except such As Are required by Issitt or mercy. B synodic All Unive Hsitu of the unsettled state of the itry and consequent financial Embar wants it was reply into. Suspend for present All efforts to endow this in Sci f a a a arrangement of pres a Yeries. Overture was received a from the Tery of Wooster requesting Synod store to them the territory taken from if and annexed to the presbytery of i and by Synod at its meeting in Maua ,.two years ago. Also in the .south�., tend their Bounds so As to embrace the of Wayne and Holmes counties. I View of this overture and with the a Urence of Coshocton presbytery it Civet. That the request of the Peti be granted As set Forth in the re. Olved that the Southern line of the Tery be extended to the Musk go a Stu so As to embrace the West Carlisle a est Bedford Wak Tomico and Jeffer Arches thence up the Muski Ngum to the Walhonding thence up the ending to the Modican and up the to the Southern Boundary of r presbytery As now fixed to pm a a he whole of n Wayne and Holmes de that the remaining portion of a presbytery he annexed to then by of Zanesville and that it Thoj by of a a. Monopolize your ool nuns will it further that Synod approved of the general Assembly in re-�6 boards of Publio Ting an did a or moves Over the smooth Waters and is fanned by the gentle breezes gods still with his ,.�?o he is Fieri Refuge in every time of. Trouble.�?�, and yet we a Bannet close our. Eyes to the fact that there Are Many things which indicate a Low state of piety 1st intemperance Sabbath breaking profanity and Kindred , have no doubt increased in the Community at Large through the influence of the unsettled state of our1 country. While we rejoice in the Wise and Christian regulation within the military division of one of a our generals yet we Are pained to Bear the beating drum and see the dress Parade on gods holy Day m our various while thousands of our i Tieps and we of our Mem Berk love to spend a. Sabbath afternoon strolling about those a encampments. With the excuse that they May Chance to hear a Sermon there. It. I a. 2d. But few revivals of Quot religion have been enjoyed by our. Churches during the past year. Those divine influences by which Means a and ordinances areal clothed with Power so that thru ugh their instrumentality saints Are edified and sinners converted to god have been m a great measure withheld from us. Many of our Fields Are like the Mountain of Gilboa a a upon a which there has been neither rain nor Dew a and the sad lamentation is Hoard from most of the watchmen a lord who hath behaved our report and to whom hath the Arm of the lord been revealed a we dare not say that a a gods Arm is shortened or his ear heavy a hut must own that our a a sins. Have separated Between us and god and our iniquities have hid his face from us that he will not hear a when we As ministers and churches see that so few souls have been converted to god , we ought not Only to set it Down As a discouraging fact but to mourn Over it undeniable evidence that there is but Little of the life and Power of religion . A i 3d. Another discouraging fact mentioned m Soi rip of the reports is that the revival influence enjoyed by so Many of our churches a few years ago has not Only passed away but in Many instances a reaction has seemed to follow so that not Only the old members Are colder than they were before but some of the Young disciples gathered at a the Totne who seemed to bid fair for the kingdom have turned Back and walk no More with.1 he Church. Yea,1 worse still satan by his smooth fascinations has succeeded in alluring some is be orally of our Young members to taste of the wine cup or to join in to amp a game or the dance. 1 a our Wapl Carsyn of we must confess that religion is in a Low we might All up la the a very language used by Many of the Brethren in. Their reports and say a a there is nothing Tinong us of special interest.�?�. The gospel is preached the people attend respectfully upon the services of the Sanctuary and alb the routine 0f Public duties and services Are kept moving Forward but we Are pained to confess that very Little has been accomplished in the work of saving souls. But while we feel cast Down we Are not utterly discouraged while mourning Over our Low estate and inefficiency we would with gratitude Bear our testimony to the Sovy reign Graceland forbearing mercy of our redeemer that he has not utterly forsaken us but has Given tee a i Dence Here and there1 that a a his gospel is re still the Power unto a tale influences of Grace have distilled As the Dpi. Through the. Regular a Sabbath. Ser vices and the Sweet streams have come Down from the River Ufi life to Gladden the bears of gods people and our churches have been much revived 1 Quot j we might name London Wooster West Carlisle a Lithopolis Apple Creek Olivea Burg and some others where the work Lias a been with divine pores to a the hearts of the people and ten fifteen and in gome liw lame a i .as11 High is Twenty out from the world and taken upon them the name of Christ. And let it be recorded for the encouragement of the Faith of gods people that some of these seas Pps of refreshing first commenced in connexion with a the services during the week of prayer for. The conversion of the world. We have evidence that god is ready to work in and through his Church actor dog tithe full measure of her Faith. A i. A and then when we look at. The More outward indications of the Church s life and activity we see some encouragement. Our churches generally and we believe always when called upon have contributed something to oui different objects of Beneficence. Several houses of worship have been built finished or fitted up anew. And there is a it growing interest Felt in the cause of Sabbath schools and Bible classes. . Tube whole ,.though not As vigorous and efficient As it ought to he has been enabled to a tand firm and to make some advancement even in these troublous times. We can still a say a a the lord of hosts is with us and the god of Jacob is our Refuge a Zion s a a King is in the midst of her she shall not be moved he shall help her and that right nearly All the reports mourn Over a the distracted state of our country and speak of the injurious influence which a constant state of Public excitement exerts upon lie cause of religion. The the people Are carried away with the All absorbing interests of our nation not that it a or improper for christians to a be interested or even excited by the startling events that Are transpiring around us. We and. Our people ought to feel a very deep interest in our1 beloved country in this the Day of her peril. And we rejoice to , that in a this Synod there a is a a cordial and United approval of , of our general Assembly on that subject and an Earnest desire to use every Effort to preserve and perpetuate our National Union and Constitution even though it May be with the Saon file of much treasure and blood and yet we know that god s become so absorbed m these Public interests As to allow the cause of Christ to languish a we feel that such is already the Case it May truly be it said an regard to these patriotic and religious duties which press upon a a a these we ought to do and not to leave the others undone a what we and our people greatly need is stronger Faith that Faith which will nerve us to work for god in the midst of storms and dangers we arc passing through trying times add feel like saying to every Soldier of the Cross a a arise put in the whole Armor watch and a Pray lest be enter into temptation a Audi instead of complaining that. God has brought u3 into the Keg dip for such a time As this a let us remember that the Post of. Danger is the Post of Honor if we Are Only faithful m it. Our Only Confidence is in divine Grace and oar Only Hope for ourselves the Church and country is m gods a sure covenant mercies.

The French emperor is Over and the kindly interchange of expressions of Amity and regard together with partial revelations Given us from one party who ought Correct in his statements have certainly quieted the apprehensions of Germany As Well As of Europe at Large a the emperors pamphleteer unacknowledged heralded the May of the prussian King by assuring Germany that her.

But you Are clearly to understand that my counsel has a not yet Heen asked matter and i shall wait till the is done., a the Queen is coming Back from her Highland Home Days and will no a doubt bid Farewell to the Beautiful Heath covered Hills of Braemar and the Glens of the North with a sigh of regret she has been All the better m health and spirits of a her visit to Balmoral and she has done the.

She visited Killarney not Long she had Only to contrast the glorious scenery of Lake of Waterfall of islands covered with the Arbutus tree and Manya fragrant a Shrub of covered to the top with the most verdant grass and in a word that earthly Paradise presented in and around the upper Lake she had Only to contrast a these untainted hand works of omnipotence and the infinitely a Good and,-.holy one with the swarms of a creeping beetles in the Priesthood of Kerry. And Kil Larivey swarming in her path and the tumbledown wry teed condition of the town itself All dirt and disorder. This were enough to confirm her in the Faith of protestant truth. ,. I i. Or.
