She was the intimate Friend of the late pious Duchess of Orleans and we with her when she died in London about two years ago. Opposition to the proposed conference at Geneva was not wanting and that from1 two it garters. 11 have before me a number of the pamphlets we acc in attack and de. Sense have beep Publiski Dawid eagerly read. I have not time nor space to Analyse them. The opponents Are first the Arian and so a Ciniman Meibers of the Genevese consistory pro by defy and secondly those few who hold High lutheran and conservative views a Milai to those of the the doctor Stahl of Berlin. As to the. Latter his death occurred about a Mouth ago and As sir culling Eardley tells me. His last Public act was to deliver a philippic against the Alliance As associating itself with liberalism amp and it the revolution and As sympathising As sir calling had subscribed to the funds for Garibaldi s expeditions with the italian Onset in the grand Dukes and Austria. Prussian Puse ism found its exponent in or. Stahl although he was clearer and More scriptural in his doctrines than the Oxford tract Arians. But lie and his party attached a High degree of Honor to the Christian ministry almost making it a Priesthood and sacramental Grace was with them a prominent article of Faith. Hence a a read Here a pamphlet which declares that the Alliance meeting is not to be countenanced because its basis virtually shuts out the Church of Rome the greek Church and the Oriental Church who All hold the Cardinal verities of the Faith even Thoush mixed. With error. It also reiterates Stahls deprecation of sir culling Eardley approval of Garibaldi s movements. The status quo of despotism m Italy this party of religionists would preserve under the extreme conservatism which is horrified at change and which makes established governments As Sueh lawful and therefore to be preserved and not destroyed. The chief opposition however at Geneva has been from the minority of the consistory who find their exponents m several writers who declaim just As or. Montgomery and the Arians of Ulster used to do when or Cooke threw out the old Blue Banner of orthodoxy against creeds and confessions against a a speculative doctrines such As the Trinity and the Alliance is thus charged with making itself exclusive it is but a repetition of the Dishop est plausibility is which abuse that sacred word a a a. These preliminary discussions have done immense good1 to the cause of evangelism baffled and beaten Back rationalism finds. Itself growing weaker every Day and the presence of so Many Earnest men who rally around the old doctrines of Calvin and the. Reformation May assuredly be regarded As the precursor of further and More extended triumphs of the truth in Geneva and Switzerland. A the Sabbath. September 1st, strictly speaking was not included in the period assigned to the conference. Nevertheless the first lords Day of this month will Ever by memorable to those a christians who had come to Geneva. For it was indeed a practical commentary on the the old Creed a a i believe in the common ion1 of the what a spectacle presented itself at the Church. Of the Ora Toire for example was an immense congregation and the lords supper after the presbyterian form was afterwards celebrated. A a i never a said one who was present a a seen in All my life so Many communicants a these included a Large body of Young people who for the first time after Long instruction confessed Christ. But besides these were the Best christians in Geneva and along with them christians from Germany France England and other countries. Y of might have seen at the table seated fraternally Side by Side episcopal clergymen and ministers of foreign or English congregations who abjure Prelay As such and at the English Church where i was not Only was there the fervent Union in Praise and in liturgical prayer As read and led by a most godly and excellent Cler Gyman who in his Sermon hailed with Joy the Advent of the conference but at the communion table were to be seen episcopalians presbyterians and. Others All. Expressing their love Tota common lord and. Redeemer it was indeed most refreshing and delightful. Ones own native Tongue made the vehicle of prayer or preaching when in foreign hand is doubly Sweet and thus at the English Church All hearts were drawn together and god was assuredly there. In the evening a United prayer meeting was held pastor Barte of Geneva vice president of the foreign Branch of the Alliance presiding prayers were offered by swedish German English and French ministers. Or. Baird spoke briefly concerning America and immediately after prayer was offered on its behalf the singing of the French hymns was Beautiful. The opening sessions of the conference were held on monday when the president m. De Naville a an eminent Layman of Geneva and the Leader of what May be called the free Church p a Tyr delivered a powerful opening address. He was followed by sir Gul Ling Eardley. Doctor Baird and the repro. Senta Tives and delegates of other branches of the Alliance. In the afternoon of the same Day pro. Fessor Gondret opened the proceedings in the a Oid Cathedral which had been granted for the conference by the consistory of the National Church the theme for Tom meeting w the lords d a and the be to Means for promoting its Type dirty in person and garments Busy with his prayers and beads and the very Emblem of ignorance and debasement. Here comes a Swiss Mother with her Little girl. The Mother dips the tip of her Finger into the holy water then wets with it the. Front of the forehead of the child. The a Little girl thereupon simultaneously with the Mother touches forehead Chin and each Side of the breast with the wet Finger a crossing herself. The priests walk the streets in Long Robes just As they do in Paris. But religious Liberty a flee press an open Bible and a living gospel a All encouraged by this Are More than a match for All their Wiles. The social condition of the masses was on the 3d instant specially before the conference. There were two special meet mrs. The first at the Cathedral from 8 to 10 a. M., where the orators were. Professor st. Hylaird and the Rev. John Bost the second from -10 a. To 12 30 p. 31-, at the Ora Toire where or. Guthrie Baptist Noel and or. Davis of the tract society were the speakers. The same evening or. Guthrie preached to a Large audience yesterday the condition of Continental countries As to scepticism and infidelity was considered in the morning and the state and claims of the jews in the afternoon. This Day being the National fast the churches Are open for Public worship,., and the conference stands adjourned till to Morrow. But the English have meetings themselves and or. Herschell of London specially convened a meeting at which special addresses and prayers were made and offered in connexion with. The salvation of the jews. With one exception All those who prayed and spoke on this occasion were jews converts to christianity and missionaries for Jesus. The illustrious or. A Capp Adose spoke with amazing Elo it is also worthy of remark that there May be a very Strong resemblance Between two persons one of whom May be very Beautiful and the other May pos amp ass Fea Tures coarse and repulsive. Thus it is not improbable that in the future world we shall see beaming from the countenance of Angels Radiant with celestial Beauty the lineaments of loved ones on Earth who have left impressions upon the Leuirt never to be effaced. The Angel Mother shall there smile again upon her child with the same i smile but now celestial Zed with which she Enkin led the love of her babe when in its Cradle. In correspondence with these views or Dwight says a a it is i think sufficiently evident that Mankind will know each other in the future world and that their bodies will be so far the same As to become the Means of this congregationalism queue . The celestial body. Dors by Rev. John s. C. Abbott. Almost every doctrine of revelation is confirmed by some remarkable analogy in the system of nature. The insect after lying entombed for weeks perhaps for months a in its Chrysalis mausoleum hears some resurrection voice which Calls it from its burial it. Bursts its Cere ments and expanding its beauteous wings painted with every. Rainbow Hue launches into the air rejoicing in the sunbeams and sipping nectar from every Flower. This emerging of the Butterfly from the temporary grave of the worm As a a it flies and swims a flowering liquid seems to be the illustration the Scenic exhibition. Which nature gives of the doctrine of the final resurrection. Paul attempts to give some faint Conception of that a a celestial body a we Are to receive at the resurrection by comparing it with the Graceful fruitful stalk which rises from the burial of the Kernel of Grain. The dry and shrivelled Grain is the i germ from whence the Beautiful Blade emerges. Thus does Paul present the whole vegetable world the uprising of the Plant or tree from the buried seed As illustrative of the resurrection of the body from the grave. The Majestic Oak Monarch of the Fields whose branches Are the on which the tempest plays its anthems, but the resurrection of the buried Acorn. The Apple tree in its june morning Bloom most gorgeous of Earth a bouquets whose fragrance fills a the air and in. The warm bosom of whose Flowers ten thousand bees murmur their Joy is but the resurrection of a Dull dead seed Parnell in his Beautiful poem a a the Hermit a endeavours to describe the imagined change of mortal to an Angel 1 a a his Youthful face grew More serenely Sweet his Robe turned White and flowed about his feet fair rounds of Radiant Point hair celestial doors breathe through purple air and wings whose colors glittered in the Day wide at. Misback their gradual plumes display. But silence Are the beauteous Angel broke the a a Ioe of music ravished As he this poetical Conception Beautiful As it is but feebly delineates the reality of that Joyful change to a take place when this corruptible shall put on incorruption anti this mortal shall put on immortal to the Sanie body that is buried is to be raised but in condition from that in which it formerly existed. How great the contrast Between the Kernel of wheat Winch is sown and the Beautiful stalk waving in Golden ripeness m the autumnal Breeze the seed of an Elm is wafted by the wind into the Meadow. It. Germinates and rises from its burial half a Century passes away and there stands the lordly Trig proud Monarch of the Fields. Noble oxen browse beneath its Shade and Birds of varied song and plumage rear their Young and warble their anthems within its wide spreading branches let their corporeal elements which compose these mortal bodies be dispersed As selected 1 jubilate Deo. A my heart mounts up in song to thee for thy and care of a me. A nor me alone but All that share. Thine equal love thy common Bare. I need x ask no gift no Grace i not freely shared by All my race a. My heart mounts up in song to the a a for All thy ceaseless love to me. Thanks for the dear delights sense for higher thoughts that Call me thence for every Power that moves the mind attraction to the Good and Wilid repulsion from the had and impress of the grand and told. A. My heart mounts up in song to thee for All these gifts of love to me. Athe world is fair and life is Blest alike in labor and in rest a a and each harsh tone of care and pain prompts and inspires some nobler Strain. A Law grows to love in thine employ. And duty ripens into Joy i my heart mounts up in song , for All thy wondrous love to a daily lesson Learned its task Complete what better can i ask ? the future i am sure must prove a Bright As to Day with thy dear love and still if Here or farther on rejoicing in each Dufy done a my heart shall mount in song to thee unceasing As thy love to me. Ered the heirs of Beaver ? and How can we be fitted for that holy place so Long to cultivate qualities absolutely essential to the perfection and Joy of its inhabitants a the examiner. The san err Sean it Flis own Fate. It is a Well known Law of the human Constitution that while practical habits grow stronger by repeated acts passive impressions by the so it a process Are weakened. Thus the sight of suffering is at at first exceedingly painful and this sympathetic pain prompts us to exert ourselves in order to relieve the sufferer. Now we find in proportion As the habits of acting in obedience to our impressions become fixed the impressions themselves become fainter and fainter. Hence physicians and Deal More for the purest and holiest and yet most comprehensive of All communions the communion of the holy ghost would to god that Church were . Hamilton. Friends although social value of the Cynith. Though religion concerns itself primarily a with Many a individual relation to god it is a intended to affect Bim in All his relations. As Man is a social being provision has been made for a social development of religion. For this end the Church was instituted christians Are United together in a household of Faith in order that each one May concern his self not with his own spiritual advancement alone but with the welfare of his fellow members. And the representations of scripture uniformly imply that this is something to be done by All in their personal capacity not merely by their procurement. It is not enough that a shall minister to the edification of a by doing his share for the support of a pastor to look after the welfare of both. The apostolic exhortation is a a look not every Man on if own things hut every a Imit also of the thin�8 of others a but this can never be done fully according to the evident sense of scriptural teaching through those official and formal methods to which too Many in or churches restrict their manifestations of Fellowship. General exhortations and conferences in Ihu stings appointed for the purpose Are very Well. They have their use and value. But the pledge of brotherly love surely is not fulfilled in these ways. Relief is very properly extended to the poor of a Church by the Agency of its deacons but those poor ought to be something More than pensioners on the Church Treasury. Their Brothers and Sisters in Christ have duties to them which cannot be done by Deputy. All the members of the body Are intimately related so that every one is necessary to every other one. All attempts to do Good whether Tegt menus souls or bodies will be truly beneficial in proportion As they express genuine love for them their welfare. Let it be seep or even suspected that you Are conferring a Benefit in rely As a duty and your labor is thrown a Way. Beneficence at arms�?T3gnthbr at the length of a pair of tongs is unpromising a defective sense of the social value of the Church tends to narrow its efficiency for Good in every direction. It was founded As a society in order that Ite members might1 promote each others growth and also their several a usefulness to them that Are without. But if its social function is neglected or repressed if it exists mainly on paper or in certain routine widely As they May and let them enter into ments the Church becomes practically non any other combinations which god existent. Union with it is mainly Assum Deboose where is the philosopher so auda ing a certain relationship to Eio Iise As to assert that these elements by to be preached to and to be visited by him their dispersion lose their vitality and can and to receive the ordinances which head not by the Power of god be re collected ministers indeed we have sometimes and re combed let the imagination sex 1 1 nurses will do a great sick than surrounding they Maji not feel for them half so much. Now to allow these impressions Tobe repeated and thus gradually weakened without acquiring the practical habits which they were meant to produce is fatal to the character it is As and ther has Well expressed it to a a Buru up the kindling without starting the this explains the jut of going and novel a Cading where passive impressions Are repeatedly awakened by imaginary scenes of distress but no Opportunity is afforded to act As these impressions would dictate in this we have a satisfactory explanation of the phenomenon so puzzling to philanthropists Viz that delicate and refined men and women will fare sumptuously every Day eating a whatever is Good a and recline nightly upon couches of Down while entirely undisturbed by a knowledge of lie fact that Many Pale forms weary and hungry Are fainting almost at their very doors. They have lost the susceptibility of receiving impressions from the sight of suffering without he ving acquired the habit of prac Ticar Benevolence. The Sante Law prevails with reference to religious impressions. The oftener these Are repeated the a la Tener the sinner feels m oved to act in View either of the love Jot Justice of god and allows these impressions to pass away without acting in accordance with them the less and less becomes the probability that he will Ever do so. On each repetition the impression becomes fainter and the indisposition to act str Tiger. The glorious gospel of Jesus Christ thus becomes to thousands in whose hearing it is proclaimed a savor of death unto death. It is possible to Wear out these impressions so that there shall be nothing left in of chef learn for gods spirit to act upon Ami who this is once effected of course the Cash a of the impenitent soul becomes hopeless. Sinner Rouse from this sleep. You have often Felt these impress Sions and As often have refused to act in obedience to them.

Establishment of universities in the twelfth Century greatly stimulated the manufacture of books by transcription More particularly those classics and philosophical treatises that were required by students in the colleges. The anxiety of the authorities in those schools of learning to insure accuracy to the text books As Well As to prevent the use of books of an improper kind led to the establishment of censorship and privileges which interfered with the preparation of and traffic in books Long after the invention of printing. Unfortunately. While this Art,.-was superseding the ancient process of transcription the convulsions consequent on the. Reformation caused an enormous destruction of books in England the libraries of monasteries representing the labor of a thousand years were mercilessly destroyed on the spot or carried off and consumed in base purposes without a thought As to their value in Scotland the monastic libraries which had escaped the ravages of danish and other invaders were similarly destroyed. The same Fate overtook the ancient monastic libraries of France at the revolution. A in consequence of these deplorable events As Well As the perishable less of books copies of works prior to the invention of printing exist Only As rare and valuable curiosities. Even of the Early printed books there Are comparatively few copies extant. In England books of improved typography and binding adapted for Ordinary libraries Date no further Back than the reign of Queen Anne. In proportion As literature has been popularized books have diminished in bulk and costliness. In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries the Ordinary sizes of books were Folio and Quarto and As works of these huge dimensions embrace As Well As much wondrous literature a pop. Ular poet uses no metaphor when he observe that ladies a a read the books they could not lift a the dignified Quarto survived in imaginative literature even till our own times for it was in this costly form that the Early editions of the poetry of Scott Byron and others made its appearance. Excepting for special purposes All such Large sizes Are happily superseded by Octavos and still lesser sized books. Forms and prices Are no longer for the few but for a a the and copies of the Bible instead of being chained to the Haust itself m the contemplation of the dispersion of these corporeal atoms still nothing can be Inore easy than for the divine Wisdom and Power to protect every particle Andre unite them in a resurrection body incorruptible powerful and glorious. And he these bodies from the asked ourselves what practical difference there is Between an Independent and a presbyterian or an episcopal Church in respect to the manner of life it promotes. We can see that the theory of Mutual covenant1 is strikingly different from that of a a admission to scaling ordinances a by Mere clerical and official authority. But when. A Rainy sunday. The Rev. Or. Baker once related in conversation the following incident of his ministerial life whilst living at Germantown thirty Odd years ago i was to have preached one Sabbath morning at Barren Hill seven or eight Miles Distant. A on Awakening in the morning the rain was descending in torrents and the wind blowing a perfect Hurricane. I debated with myself whether i ought to go. I concluded to go. I Laving taken breakfast and ordered my horse and gig i started for Barren Hill. But to i had not proceeded More than a Quarter of a mile when in spite of the leather top and i apron i was drenched to the skin. Crossing the Hill sides the storm threatened to overturn my vehicle and my poor horse tremble i. Still i went Forward. By the time of my arrival at the Church there was not a dry thread upon me Abd i could not have been More saturated with water had i been dipped in the Delaware. And now on my arrival How Many people do you suppose i found at the Church ? a we began with the Abrahamik number a a a a entirely too High a exclaimed the doctor. I a forty five a was the next conjecture which elicited the same response. A a forty a was the next number stated with the same result. A a thirty Quot said we next still keeping in View father Abrahams descending scale but still the doctor said a a too High too High a a a Twenty a was next Given As the Proba ble number and then a a ten a when we gave it up.

When a roman author wished to give his Book to the world a copy was put into the hands of transcribers Libr Arii by whom a certain number of copies were produced. From these transcribers who were equivalent to our modern printers the copies passed to a class of artists librarian who ornamented them with fanciful titles margins and terminations. The Rolls were finished for use by the Hubli Pagi or bookbinders and last of All they were offered for Sale by the Bibl Topolse or booksellers. A copy of one of the esteemed productions of a roman author As for example a copy of Virgil or Horace was an elegantly done up Roll about thirteen inches in depth wound round a Cylinder the two ends of which were decorated with Ivory or Metal knobs. Yet the romans did not invariably make their books in Rolls in some instances they used leaves of Lead which had been beaten thin with a Hammer and also leaves of Wood covered with Wax these loosely connected at the Back with rings May be viewed As the rude originals of the modern Book. At Herculaneum books of this kind called tablets have been discovered in perfect preservation. Neglected mine.�?T. The communion of the saints. When the tide is out you May have noticed As you rambled among the Tocks Little pools with Little fishes in them. To the shrimp in such a Pool his foot depth of Salt water is All the Ocean for the time being. He has no dealings with Bis neighbor shrimp in the adjacent Pool though it May be Only a few inches of Sand that divides the but when the rising Ocean begins to lip Over the margin of the Lurk-1 came the Quick reply How old Are you. The following is the last anecdote we have seen told of or. Emmons. There was a physician in the neighbourhood of Franklin where or. Emmons preached for seventy one. Years who was c i erupting the minds of men. By his pan theism. The physician being called to a sick family in the Franklin Parish met the Franklin minister at the House of affliction. It was no place for a dispute. It was no place for any unbecoming Famili Arity with the minister. It was no place for a physician to inquire into the age of the minister especially with any intent of entangling him in a debate and above All where the Queriot was too visionary for _ logical discussion. But the abrupt question of the pantheist was a emr.

The different views a concerning the future state held by the Christian a Church May be thus classified arranging them exhaustively. Under eight divisions. I. The roman Catholic Church. Makes three conditions hereafter namely 1. Everlasting Joy. _ 2. Everlasting suffering. A a a a 3. Temporary sorrow in Purgatory ii. The orthodox protestant Church makes two conditions hereafter namely 1. Infinite and eternal Joy. 2. Infinite and eternal suffering. Ill the old school universalist make one Condo Tina hereafter namely 1. Eternal . New school universalist and re Stora zionists make two conditions hereafter namely 1. Eternal Joy. A 2. Temporary and finite suffering. V. Unitarians make an indefinite number of conditions hereafter according to the various characters and moral status of men. A a. A _ i. The swedenborgian make an indefinite but limited number of heavens and Bells suited to the varieties of character but having a supernatural origin. Vii. The spiritualists make the other world like this world with no essential differences making it a continuation of the natural a. Viii. The annihilation lists believe the will perish wholly at a come to nothing.? a a a at first sight this looks like Arvery formidable array of varying opinions and might Lead to a the conclusion that there is really a wide divergence of Christian sentiment in a Point so interesting and so important. But this is far from being the ease. It will be observed by the Reader that the View which holds the final state of All men to be one of everlasting Joy or everlasting suffering is that which has always been held by the great body of professed christians which is found incorporated in tie standards of every historical Church and1 which is now held by Dine tenths of All those in every land a who be a the Christian name. Gan it by that who was to guide Christ a people into All truth has suffered almost tie whole Chireh to be in error on this Point from a the Aposto lib Days Down to our own a Christian intelligencer the Flade by Ilu Frel. Two men members of the same Hureh quarrelled about to Weir minister one thought he ought to go the other advised him to stay and though most of the Parish took part in these differences of opinion the tongues of these two men the sharpest. The minister,.left.but>going.did not heal the breach. The two Farmers never spoke to each other. In the High Way they were strangers in the Sanctuary at the prayer meet Ting round the table of the lord they were strangers still nor could friends effect . Some time after a political convention was held at tie capital. These two with others were appointed delegates. They went and were sent to Partaker of the Hospital ties of tie same Bonse. They sat at the same table strangers still. At night they were directed to the same chamber and met to occupy the same bed. They were Christian men and were in the habit of both family a and closet prayer. Could they Kneel Down and Pray strangers yet ? could the unforgiving spirit crave forgiveness ? and would the father of mercy Grant petitions offered so ? had not their lord plainly said1 to each of them a if thou bring thy gift to the altar and there remember est that thy brother has aught against thee leave there thy gift before be altar and go thy Way first to thy brother and then come and offer thy gift a Bach Felt the searching language. It seemed to confront the like letters of fire. They looked each other in the face Drew neat clasped bands tears of penitence were on their Sun burned Cheeks and words of forgiveness on their lips. Side by Side they Knelt and prayed and their hearts flowed but in contrition and love. A they Rose Brothers in Christ strangers never More.

Grace May sometimes smoulder in he heart but if it is really a Here it will kindle and flame and show itself a spark of that Truo life which is the a a Light of the ing place one Pool joins another their various tenants meet and by and by in place of their Little Patch of standing water they have the oceans boundless Fields to roam in. When the tide is out when religion is lows the faithful Are to be found insulated Here a few and there a few in the Little standing pools that stud the Beach having no dealings with their neighbors of the adjoining pools calling them a Samaritans and fancying that their own Little communion includes All that arc precious in gods sight. They forget for a time that there is a vast and expansive Ocean rising every Ripple brings it nearer a a mightier comm Union even the com Munion of saints which is to eng Jilli All minor considerations and to enable the fishes of All pools the christians of All denominations to come together.
