Saturday november 30, 18b1. Whole no. 479, threatened with serious injury. Our. Common country is assailed by misguided and erring Brethren who have appealed to the arbitrage it of the sword As the Means of settling the question of sectional strife a be tween the North Rand the. South. This we deeply deplore for As office bearers in the kingdom of the Prince of peace we feel that peace and not War especially civil and fratricidal War will a most directly pro Mote the vital interests of his kingdom whom we serve. Arising out of this trouble of the country you As Well As we Are aware that All the commercial interests of the same arc in difficulty and confusion. The revenues by which the increased expenses of the gov Ern ment Are do be sustained cannot longer be derived from the usual sources hence funds must be secured from the cheerful and Liberal contributions of Loyal hearts the necessities of the crisis have be Emitil to thus far it by the spontaneous and uns tinted Confidence of the sons of Liberty. In this we rejoice but Brethren the same causes which have deranged the e Means of govern i fatal support a have acted upon a the Church and Are very seriously affecting ill her interests. Not Only Are our Board of benevolent Effort greatly crippled in their operations but our feeble missionary churches Are either involved in difficulty in maintaining their organization or. Threatened with extinction. The Board of missions has Felt the pressure to such extent As to prevent her. Prompt payment of their appropriations to sustain the labourers of the gospel among these churches. You yourselves Are the witnesses of this state of things so that we need but refer to them. But in View of such facts we desire to Cali your serious and prayerful attention to the duties devolved a upon Yon if you would not willingly suffer the things concerning your spiritual welfare to fall and perish i among these let us briefly particularized 1. In View of the country s troubles we exhort you faithfully to remember her in your daily prayers in the closet and at the family altar lift up your hearts for the Blessing of our fathers god to rest upon the country and Lead her safely and triumphantly through her present conflict give your country Best prayers then give her your treasure influence and cordial support. 2. But Brethren let Sotir Devotion to1 the Church of the lord Jesus Christ he Ati least equal to that which you show to your country. What would your country be. Without the Church and her ordinances what would you and your children do if deprived of these privileges ? she needs your prayers and she needs est specially with them your Liberal and increased contributions both for the preservation of the gospel among yourselves and the Extension of her work in the conversion of the world. A few suggestions Brethren will enable you we Hope clearly to appreciate this necessity. 1. Your pastors or stated supplies Are. Ordinarily men of. I whited Means and even with the appropriations of the Board of missions have Little or. No surplus after sustaining their families. Indeed in Iri Ariy bases All that they get both from you and the Board of missions is insufficient a to cover All their expenses when therefore the Board of missions not Only reduced the amount of appropriations Twenty five a per cent., Brit defer its quarterly payments from two to three or four months after they fall Doe the difficulty is greatly increased now. If a ministers mind is harassed about the Means of obtaining bread for his family and to liquidate his debts How can he devote Quot himself with grateful and Joyful Zeal to his arduous work in your behalf nothing indeed so units a minister for his spiritual work As to have his mind distracted by pecuniary difficulty. Now As 5thffbboard of Mission has found it necessary not Only to reduce their appropriations but to defer or delay their payments it is Clear that you must either do More than you have done or Yon pastors and stated supplies must leave their work with you or toil on a in want and Quot poverty. If they leave then you Andi Yout children suffer. If they remain they labor with burdened and distracted minds and you enjoy their labors without rendering to them thata Mounton worldly support needful for them. In either Case you Are sufferers. We urge you then Bra Thren to make an immediate and enlarged Effort to meet this crisis and supplement the reduced salaries of those who labor among you in word and doctrine. You have the my ans in abundance and we Hope you will use them with a Liberal and uns tinted hand. It is a necessity Brethren and must be met. 2. The treasuries of All our boards and especially of our Board of missions need to be replenished. You hate hitherto been greatly helped by this latter Board and now in the Day of its trial it is both reasonable and necessary that you should communicate to its necessities. In coming up to the help of this boar a you but repay a debt of gratitude and while repaying this a you help others who May be less Able Chati you and in addition you make the discovery that you can do much More to sustain yourselves alone than you May have supposed. At this discovery we think you a should constantly aim. Depending Pori others for Aid tends to1 paralyse Effort and keep a you in a Bort of. Pupillage or bondage we would have you to be under god self dependent and self sustaining. Cultivate this spirit labor to help Lotf selves and a then Yori will enjoy the consciousness of a Noble Independence and at the same time have the Joy of helping others. Let not your ministering Brethren suffer and withhold not your hand from the work of an enlarged Christian Benefit ence. A we solemnly exhort and urge Yon Brethren to attempt this enlarged Effort for yourselves As Well As for others. In doing so Christ will be honoured your own usefulness and Comfort will be promoted and Many hearts will bless you. In failing Todo so you neglect a solemn duty and subject both yourselves and others to Many evils. Let your ruling elders and other prominent men make it a Point immediately to inaugurate a a method by which first your own salary shall be materially increased and secondly your contributions May be More enlarged to All the schemes of our benevolent Effort. Let each and every one give but a Little More and the great work will be done. The ministry of the gospel will be made permanent among you and your sister churches will rejoice Over your Noble Christian liberality. 3. In order that you maybe Able intelligently to appreciate both the state of orig churches and your ditties in View of. Their Pys or sorrows their reverses or their triumphs we suggest and urge upon Yog the importance of patronizing and carefully Redding some of the excellent religious periodicals of our denomination. Such a paper should be taken in every Christian family it will exert a most important and beneficial influence upon the. Children and of the family Circle it will keep you constantly informed of the character affy extent of out Christian efforts Ini behalf of the gospel and afford you constant and Active cooperation. A these things Brethren we earnestly fit Fri Fariad to 1 your Fri Telli ent piety afr d Pray you at once so to act upon them As to secure the Best and happiest results. A yours in the lord.

The Prince of Wales has been this week received by the barristers of the Middle Temple toe most ancient and historic names of British Law and British jurists a arid made by them Quot an honorary member of their body. Great was thet interest awakened and multiplied the crowd at the presentation of a address in a Beautiful improvised Pavilion As Well As at the i opt Ning by the Prince of the new Law Library in the. Temple grounds a magnificent building As also at the banquets afterwards held in the Prince being present in the Fine Oldi carved Hall decked with the spoils of the Spanish Armada and1 Rich in its portraits and carved roof and Nelling. A in a the evening also there was a Large number of ladies and gentlemen at the Conversa Zione in the Library. A the Young Prince is gradually becoming a Public character. He is a considerably Fuller and taller in figure than when he visited the a United states. He reads Well a like his Mother As he proved on thurs Day in his reply to the address. He has been a diligent student of Law As Well As of military tactics besides keeping terms at both universities. We Trust that he will be All that the nation could desire and a All that his excellent parents especially that True Mother Victoria a who has educated her a children with extraordinary pains Pray for As to her eldest born. The weath or continues favourable and Beautiful thus shortening our Winter keeping Down the Price of coals and alleviating the hardships of the poor As Well As affording the finest possible seed time to the English Farmer the Price of provisions is lower than it was twelve months in the article of potatoes the reduction is �2 per ton. This valuable esculent1 has in England Well nigh escaped the blight that through wet weather fell on it in Ireland. Speculation in Cotton convulse a the Market and is the subject of a letter to the times of a Manchester citizen who is a a credibly informed that the present speculators Are Many of them ladies clergymen lawyers and others not a a regularly engaged in business who have fallen into the mania As others did in the railway mania of 1845.&Quot he adds a a the professional Cotton speculators have i am told retired from action. They know that the Bubble must burst they know that the speculation is not warranted and supported by the1 requirements of the world nor Are they Blind to the fact that the sword of Damocles hangs Over the head of the Speculator in the form of the american crop of Cotton which must sooner or later come Here. An armistice a recognition of Southern Independence by our gallic friends a few cargoes successfully run through the blockade will any of them cause an immediate collapse and Cotton which was sold last year at 5dv, a and which is now Selling at lid.,.will.As surely fall to its old value As the railway stocks did when they collapsed from their fictitious Price in 1847.�?� a a a that the emperor of the French will recognize the Independence of the South at present or Ever is i think exceedingly doubtful. Not that he. Has not Strong inducements in the terrible financial crisis that has come upon France greatly aggravated by the want of Cotton. But in this matter at least i expect he win act in entire Accord with the British government refusing to endorse any proposal to break the. Blockade and waiting the Issue of affairs. A a writer writing in the Southern interest denies that the South has met the blockade by an embargo which he says would but keep up ,.by taking away foreign ships any motive to enter the ports in spite of a Northern Fleet. The South hut preserves a a a passive resistance a by1 keeping a away from a accessible Points a Large amount of property. It is denied also that at the breaking out of this War the South Wasp prepared for a Long Campaign and that corruption a had been Practised by or. Floyd Secretary of War under president Buchanan. A a nothing like organization existed nothing could have been More unexpected than the a act of a secession to the army Aud Navy. J not single officer was addressed on the subject . Act was. Passed in the Confederate Congress securing the same rank to any officers who came Over. Powder Mills also were unknown with an insignificant the Erasmo Stock of shoes or clothing of Medicine no paper Mills to furnish a Cartridge paper. Then the writer holds out the following bait to speculators a a the South has Cotton to sell As she has had for Many years the Only difference so for As she is concerned is that one Holder has 1,200,000 Bales in his hands. I mean the government so fir a As the rest of the world is concerned there is a difficulty in obtaining that Cotton namely the prohibition of the United find to amp to any number of a a the a Patja eight Ala Anace can be dispatched to the United states.

A but for Greenock has been reviewing the last session of a parliament and Public affairs generally in the presence of his constituents. He was a the Legal and Lay leaders of the evangelical party in the scottish establishment before the disruption was of strength to them in that crisis and foyer since has been distinguished As a counsellor in difficulties he has been in parliament for a series of year a whig and a a a something he has preserved a very Independent position. He Speaks Seldom hut when he does speak he is listened to. It was of him a that do israeli once said a a that is the Cleverest Man sent up to the House from Scot perhaps this was said after Dun. Lopes unexpected and most annoying attack on lord Palmerston s policy and conduct in reference to t the afghan War and the injustice Dona the memory of sir Alexander Burnes. Or. Dunlop in tic course of his recent address spoke on the american crisis. The following Are his we ords a. The amx Icah looking at the e calamitous warfare now being waged among our Brethren in America ones prevailing pc eng is in the first place intense sorrow at the pro pectin of the breaking up of a great and Noble state sprung from ourselves and so reflecting Back on us some of its own glory and calculated by its almost indefinitely increasing influence and Power so largely to extend Oor language Dur re Ligion our tree institutions in do the disuse m civilization Over the. Globe Anan thei second a place it is that of in mingled sorrow and sur a prise Quot at the perverse and hostile obstinacy with which the people of. The North in regarding us. As sympathizing with the slave holding South. Now although,1 dds Holt ,1 this strange. Perversity May of later have. Affected our feelings toward them 1 believe that the peo a pie of this country when the so Uther rebellion first broke out were All but unanimous in favor a of the North. If they deemed it necessary for their interest to enforce their own Constitution a we could not but acknowledge Quot As we did heartily a acknowledge that they Hartright and Justice on1 their Side while we cordially sympathized with them on the question which Hadgi Venorise tothe discontent of the South them Enof the North however have determinedly and universally refused to believe this. I have by Etiz Gre a Tolj a puzzled to account for this l possibly they. Cannot imagine that the sympathies of a people could be so at variance with Quot Tkv in material interests and that it was i out of the Quot question that Iyre a a bold a for the love of Justice and Liberty deny our selves even for a time the advantages of Arad equate Supply of cheap Cotton or they May be a conscious that their conduct toward us in the a matter of free Trade and the a Ria tent of their hostile Morrill Tariff deserved no. Good will on our part or they May even feel that their Hesi Tating and doubtful policy on the question a of a slavery itself was Quot calculated to win our Confidence but what i own i dread still More is that their determination to deem us hostile o them Springs from a consciousness on their part a that they Are prepared in order to save the1 Union to make concessions to the South on the subject of slavery which they must know would a be denounced with Universal condemnation in Britain. Applause should this be so it Wal to deeply to be deplored and inde cd would he the Only Issue out of this sad contest which a would leave to alleviating or consoling consideration behind. I will Hope better things however for the Honor of our american Kinsmen and the cause of Liberty and whatever they May believe or disbelieve i am very confident that the great body of the people of will unfeigned by rejoice in any result which aha i a maintain unbroken the great Republic Fri the to any sacrifice of the proc Isles which triumphed at the election of president Lincoln. Or. Dunlop next adverted to a the caring of the contest on British Commeree and manufactures and concluded1 by deprecate i ing the a breaking of the blo1ckf�de,�?~�9 Vrell As a a the Dishonour of hastily a be cog firing a state whose Constitution is avowedly based on. The principle of slavery. Andy on the i righteousness Justice and duty of maintaining it As to a a sympathy with the South a the charge1 is repeated in a Long letter a which appeared yesterday in1 the times from the pen of the Hon. Theodore Fay late United states minister to confederation a who also maintains that the object of the North is the ultimate abolition of slavery. This is not the opinion of the English people otherwise the feeling of sympathy from the great religious Public a would be stronger than it is. But for my part i fondly Hope that the War will be overruled to such an Issue even though its first outburst was naturally and necessarily that of enthusiastic attachment to the Union and of resentment. Against the fort a tempter outrage on its Flag. The tory sir John a Kington has been telling a p political dinner party that the reason Why the North is keeping up the contest is a from Puri shame lest they should be obliged pro to Cally to own that jete publican institutions have failed and then other tories Rie off with a flourish of trumpets and a demand that there be no Reform Bills. Th1e a saturday ret View that panegyric upon Prince Napoleon at Bosto opis quite , with a a the recent me ires of the, his ministers which be Fry How completely the Kapo Leonui amp a of go by govera Merit Liefl sunk into if�1 minds of american statesmen a and tto it a e cd it do mat of Louis no poled and Iho coup do eat of Abraham Lincoln in to Hgt forcible Laturo Are precisely1-on similar list i heed Abd improved ground a that they4aeditated> using their Regis Latke Powers. For to re Rieher Alia on/4a a a it r Tion of sustaining the government by a rigorous prosecution of the War the North very nearly a unit a adds that a a from a his Point opinion diverges in three is the Garrison an abolition is school which would throw the go Istir tuition to. The winds and would have the government to proclaim Universal Liberty and some of them also Are ready a a to put arms into the hands of the slaves that a they might enforce their rights at the Point of a the result of Quot this says the dash news would be a a an entire upheaval of society and a revolution of the most Radical he then proceeds to notice the other two parties those who while they a love Liberty Are also attached to existing Republican institutions who would bring about a change through the legitimate action of fhe Constitution. And think that All this a generation can do is to Check the expansion �?~of1 sly very and that to attempt More would be to plunge them into All the horrors of political and social revolution and peril a the existence of society. This is sit Ion of the Republican party. Upon this ground or. Lincoln was elected and such is his present the writer then proceeds As follows a the third class Are those who Dove the Union Wajih a lid a tenacity of traditional instinct or the passion of a deep patriotic National sentiment. A these Are stronger than the Mere Lovo of Universal Liberty. Among these will a found the most conservative and wealthy. This class has been inclined a to �?Tyield1 to the South to a save the Union and has grown up with a certain traditional respect for the institution of. Slavery. Not having a deep loathing of it they would tolerate its a Xis Tenee and live with it on terms of Compromise. In the late arrangement of parties a this a class almost to v Man was opposed to the a republicans. A. Now As the South in its organized rebellion is fighting Fot slavery it enlists the Active opposition of the abolitionists is it has. Struck at the Constitution and Republican institutions it has awakened the determined antagonism of the second Ahdas it threatens the Union it arrays against to the third class. Hence the first1 gun against the National Flag United the North against the common foe. But As the War progresses new questions arise. As the South is much More formidable than was at first sup pm seed and the feels use their slaves for the purposes of War the inquiry arises shall we riot strike the foe in his vulnerable Point again what shall a he done with the slaves of rebel Mas term to the stars and stripes for Protection ? Gan men who Are in open warfare against Tho Constitution claim the authority arid Aid of this very Constitution does not the feet of men being in open rebellion place them on the same footing As Quot an enemy arid therefore make their. Slaves Centra bad furthermore do not the exigencies of. Military necessity demand that we1 should carry out the plan indicated by the or defamation of gun. Fremont ? a 1. Al these questions involve the relation a Between the War and slavery and upon this opinion a has Rio t yet re ached a definite form. For this reason the Federal government and Pohtio cans Lirou ghost the North Are inclined to suspend a decision. This is. The position of the Cabinet and the action of the convention at Worcester. They Are not prepared to coincide with the speech of or Sumner or the acts of Gen Fremont but regard them As premature because Public sentiment is Mot yet prepared for such a bold . When a if Ever the people will be ready a for this depends on the course of events. A a a such very valuable in reference to the enlightenment of Public opinion in this country. The a a course of events is under the control of the provi Den be of a a god Only Wise a the just and Beneficent one. The Issue we. Trust will be to his glory and to the enlarged purity peace and Prosperity of United millions meanwhile a a a shall there be evil in the City and Quot the lord hath not done it a and if gods True people on both sides of the Atlantic continue fervent in prayer and Humble add. Contrite in spirit May he riot do marvellous things and that speedily which we know not and of. A deficiency is. Declared in our exports of nearly eight millions Sterling during the last nine1 months. The falling off in the last month had increased from 7fto nearly 18 per cent., a As compared with the september of 1860. Thus to. Speak More definitely there is a decrease of a million and a half in out exports of Cotton our woolens and i hens each declines to the extent of a Quarter of a million and metals have sunk rather More than the same amount. A succession of years Prosperity is thus suddenly broken. The american crisis accounts for it All in other matters than Cotton yarn and cottons�?in1 woolens and Silks in hardware and metals we have not gone backward but rather have advanced in the september returns More in 1860 than in 1861. To us the War has been a a Quot startling Cheek a a but alas As a Public writer expresses it a the consequences of War have been it to the ports of America almost the annihilation of Well on the Back of comes a the Vej Rodical Xenia amp iness which begins with the a gloomy frontal of november and culminates pm the Kif st Day of the new year in France. And so it is now apprehended that the emperor Means mischief that while he Isi conciliating the Pope and rejecting the proposals of the italian Cabinet he is doing his Best to detach Prussia from England and excite French popular jealousy against this country. A a new pamphlet has just appeared at Paris entitled a a England Austria and the interviews at co Peigne a marked by great bitterness.

E., is with those a lib use the words is meant protestantism but let us hear the writer and interpreter of italian politicians still further a a Italy they say May never become the Field for theological controversy to the end of time. It never was in the worst of Ages. Italian dissenters even in the Days of Ehino Eicr Martyr and the Socini had to Cross the a los if they wanted to find disciples and of course they had to do so that is if they had escaped those inquisitorial fires and dungeons by which the rising reformation was put Down in Italy. Did these people never hear of Savan Orala or of those eminent a a schismatics a of whose names doctor Mccrie the elder has told us in one of his famous books of reformation history. The writer from turin1 further adds a a Passaglia and liver one Are greeted in Italy As political agitators ,to raise the Banner , they would be hissed As quacks and very Likely but is not the Pope himself afraid of something heretical coming a of Quot the Abby a saws attack a on the temporal Power ? in the.

If you do not a promptly seek a remedy in humility a Blind submission to authority such As was demanded by Leo Xvi. Of the Monk of Erfurt a Yow will live and die another a a we must not be too sanguine about Italy nor expect a that among a people Over whom1 i Nide hey and superstition have held so enduring a Sway that there will be a National movement toward the gospel for a Long time. But meanwhile first fruits are1 being gathered breaches Are being made in what appeared an impregnable fortress religious Liberty is established widely in spite of and to the terror of the Pope and1 his intr melons.

With a faithfully paid salary we have always had reason to be Content but this is not the cause of a our gratitude for the salary is a due by reason of a fair bargain.

I i a a ,. For the presbyterian Banner. A Church dedicated. _ the new presbyterian Henreh edifice at Canton Pennsylvania was dedicated on wednesday morning,-6th inst., with appropriate services to the Triune god. There. Julius Foster of Towanda pa., preached the dedication Sermon a from Haggai ii 9 and the Rev. Camp offered 1 the dedicatory prayer. A a an Appeal was then made a by Bro. Foster and the members. Of the Church arid congregation came Forward and contributed some $145 on the spot enough As was then Quot supposed to Clear the Church of debt. The timely1 appropriation from the Board of Church Extension will cover the bal Lance and enable us to Complete the House according to our a purpose but not to furnish it with suitable lamps Boll cushions and Melodeon. But As god has prospered us so greatly beyond our expectations As to enable us to build this1 Beautiful and commodious House of worship a even in troublous times we Hope _ to succeed in some Quot Way in furnishing our House of Wor ship with1-these necessary fixtures. 1 the Rev.

A a a 1 a. A the Farmer mentioned above has no acquaintance with evidences of christianity As they Are treated in books. His firm conviction of the truth of the Bible rested upon �inward1 proof. What is a the nature of that proof is it a conviction for which no reason can he Given certainly not. The conviction rests upon an experience of the effects of the Bible upon the soul. Suppose it is affirmed that a a certain Medicine will cure a particular disease. There Are two ways in. Which we May Bei convinced of the truth of that operation. We May examine the testimony that is furnished in support of it and that to a Timony May be so Clear and abundant As to produce Complete conviction in our minds. We May have the disease ourselves and May take Medicine. If we recover from the disease and if it is Clear that our recovery was owing to the Medicine then we know from experience that the assertion is like manner men know from experience that the Bible is True. They have Felt its effects upon their souls. The Plain unread Christian has therefore a right to say he knows that the Bible is True Christian knowledge. A.
