We see it in Anglo Saxon As Well As other communities. To shroud selfish designs under Fine names and plausible professions is not the crime of France Only in modern times Good men everywhere look on with sadness at the apparent nay practical forgetfulness that the righteous lord who Loveth righteousness is the governor of nations As such and demands on penalty of his frown legislation according to his eternal Laws of truth and Justice. As to the cause of scepticism in religion m. Naville said that at al Mouth there is a religious movement and Awakening yet. There is Mohin it bad and impure especially a in the instinct of contests and controversies and to Many persons religious divisions Are a source of doubt and a the world of unbelievers and undecided persons is constantly surrounding a professed christians the most fruitful germ of scepticism the most powerful cause of their indecision is the spectacle of the controversies and disputes of christians with one another. The prevalence of infidelity in modern French literature in periodicals in newspapers and publications of the Day was next dwelt upon. A a Eulogy on vice is often found under the same cover with a Eulogy on Christian modern scepticism also finds an auxiliary in science.

A the singing of hymns in connexion with the meetings of conference was exceedingly delightful. There was a collection of psalms and canticles a a psalms it can toques a selected and printed expressly for the occasion. Of these the original hymns in French were seventeen in number in German ten in English five. But in most cases French and German words were Given together and in others words in accordance with the music which was also furnished in the Book in a few oases,1 the three languages ran1 parallel As an illustration of the latter i May refer to that glorious outburst of seasonable an d j ubi la n t song which immediately followed the magnificent arid Power fill a a dry is of or.

Stood out Bocci in in the Bath coach against her fellow traveler a views of religion despised his parting counsel and went to bed that night without Reading the scriptures or bending her knee in prayer. But she had no sooner gone to bed than conscience began to work and would not let her sleep. She was compelled to get up and dress and then she read the word of god As she had never triad it before and prayed As she had never graded before and the Issue of it was her subversion to god.

Some excuse will always be at hand when indolence is the counsellor and our poor hearts Are the listeners yet depend upon it this labor must be taken if we would guard our charge from evil.

It was a melancholy be because it indicated the sex stance a minued existence of that which has Eho curse of France for the last Cen of specially amongst its Litera Teara is and the higher classes of society at k opening discourse on wednesday he borate and powerful. It was the Jim read a aloud of professor a Naville of Geneva. The Skepi with which the orator proposed to was not that of the pyrrho lists which a lube existence of an external and in few Oral nor yet that of the men who u infidels As a source of profit and lid gain. A a to examine into the Ori the sceptical tendencies of men to iqra a moment into the Domain of pure a and so conclude such a said m.

In the Field of pol often the Maxim that a a the end the is the Ruie of diploma a a is a a eternal Laws and moral ordered Success is enough is separated from politics and a a is i red an 1 Umphle place m the books top Peers. In sermons and Casein the discourse a fair thrust list and other politicians when nature is without a cause and Mankind without a the grand remedy for scepticism As or Naville showed was Faith in god a a divine a i know Quot said he a no other it # the sermons and addresses delivered during the period of the conference Independent of its special and prescribed sessions have been interesting and important. Or. Guthrie the Hon. And Rev. Baptist Noel the Rev. William Arthur or. Or Wink of Dublin the vicar of Islington London Daniel Wilson the Rev. Or. Dallas who had a meeting for the Irish Church missions such were some of those who edified the English speaking portion of the members of the conference. Or. Denham Smith also of Kingston gave several revival addresses with some marked results and or. Noel inaugurated open air preaching in Geneva by an admirable Sermon in French. Or. Krum Macher of Berlin a and other Continental pastors also preached in different places. A fast Day in Geneva according to ancient custom commemorating the sufferings of the French protestants for the common Faith presented opportunities for Many meetings Independent of the conference suspended for the Day and yet in accordance with its main design. Thus at Gol. Trench anti a House there was a Large gathering where Italy received special attention. Religious tracts also were duly considered. Thus again an English meeting was held elsewhere for the stirring up by facts related and addresses made the flame of missionary Zeal. At this meeting a foreign pastor gave interesting accounts As to the present condition of the holy land which including Lebanon had been lately visited by m. Bovett a Swiss pastor. And so it was that there was the remarkable and memorable meeting r on the same Day when jews in Christ United in prayers to god and pleading with Gentile christians in behalf of jews out of Christ. To this i referred in my last letter. A a the Swiss reformation and especially the great Genevese reformer Calvin him self furnished a meet theme to or. Merle do Aubigne on thursday morning at the reopening of the conference in the Cathedral. Never did i attend any gathering More truly heart stirring. Here was the Hureh in which Calvin preached and taught and when the historian of the reformation in the course of his address delivered from the temporary desk which was used throughout the conference meetings pointed to the pulpit with the canopy overhead under which Calvin had so often stood and the old Black Oak chair in which the great Docteur teacher had so often sat and with the vivacity of an Eye flashing from beneath those dark lashes and brows and a hand with demonstrative ardor he cried out a a Bette chaire �?T1�?T that chaire / the emotion in the vast audience was profound. Every word of do Aubigne a address was distinctly spoken and eagerly listened to. It was Rich in All the beauties of his pictorial style he Drew the portraits of cil Vin Luther and Melanethon with a distinctive Power and with a master hand he described with striking clearness the controversy of Calvin with Luther on con substantiation and their reconciliation and with a fullness of great unction and enthusiasm he recapitulated the grand article of Faith for which Calvin bore witness As the greatest of the reformers. The italians Are not to be forgotten in my notice of the proceedings of last week on thursday afternoon at. The Chapel of the oratory the Hon. A. Kinnaird m. P., presided Over a crowded meeting. Near the pulpit stairs and pulpit might be seen m. Revel and Meille Waldensian pastors with others apparently their Brethren. M Meille was the first speaker. He showed that strictly speaking there was very Little of protestantism and of spiritual religion that for the present the collision with Popery was political. Nevertheless there was great cause for Joy that christians As such could now labor without hindrance in the spread of truth he dwelt also with approbation on the. Great pioneering work done by Cavour Garibaldi and the recent letter of Baron Ricasoli he also touched of the question of the Union of Chuich and state he considered that it will solve itself by and by in the sense of Ca Vours words a a a free Church and a free but the Charm and al traction of this italian meeting was the address of m. Mazarella in italian professor at the University of Bologna. He is yet Young is a thorough orator with All the vivacity and wit of Gavazzi without his physical Force and occasional coarseness. He examined in a rapid and striking manner the antagonist positions of protestantism and Popery in Italy and the relations of the different protestant congregations to one another. He spoke with profound affection it of the various churches to which he does not belong and expressed pc conclusion the Hope that the Day would arrive when the evangelical Alliance would meet m Rome itself do Aubigne expressed the same Hope Ini his address and contrary to what is usual in the meetings there there was. A Universal burst of applause it does not speak very of a Vor ably of religious Liberty in Italy to in do to announced at the meeting of ithe Ora Toire that m. De sauces one of the expected speakers at the italian is the celebrated a choral de Luther a which begins a a Ein Feste Barg is in ser Gott a i. E. A a our god is a Strong but parallel with each line ran the French and English. Accordingly when Luther so a choral a was announced,4he three Peoples swelled together the heart stirring Anthem and with a hallowed enthusiasm glorified the glorious god and King who in dark Days had shielded defended and made vie atorious witnesses for his truth especially in Germany Switzerland and England. More than this True believers realized in the expressions of this Noble song their own and final Victory Over satan the great adversary and enemy of their souls. And so the last verse As echoing in three languages along the aisles of the Noble Cathedral ran Thusa a Yea if the world with devils swarmed in fiery ranks and fierce array we fear them not by Faith we re armed with Christ we re sure to win the Day. Thus satan we defy. Nor dread his tyranny the great accusers cast a the tempter a Power is past. One word of Christ can Lay him. Low a the last hymn in the conference Selec Tio was a for the holy supper a and was specially used in connexion with the joint Celebration of the redeemer a death. It is a hymn of Humble thanksgiving to the a n. A a a. Al jul. Lord of the feast beginning with the acknowledgement of unworthiness and sinful Ness proceeding to extol his deep compassion add matchless love dwelling on the blood which a a flowed for our offences a and a a the tasting of the sufferings of death a the american meeting was held on. Saturday at the Ora Toire. Its design was to illustrate the effects produced on romanism by emigration and on that subject or Baird bore full and Gratifying testimony in a very interesting address immediately after the close of his speech or. Do Aubigne who was obliged to leave the meeting Early craved leave to say a few words and proceeded to express his profound sympathy with a a All the children of god in America in connexion with the civil War and its results. These were earnestly responded to by the audience As also his prayer to the Prince of peace for the cessation of the strife. Or. Baird spoke confidently and cheerfully As to the future of America. A minister whose name i did not catch from Geneva in the United states read a most admirable paper on the causes of the War specially slavery. To this address i May afterwards refer. This meeting was attended by lord Roden sir culling Eardley and the leading English ministers and laity. To i selected v prayer for the Inion. By h. 0�av pk.rus8.

J i arrived Here on my Way to England on tuesday night having spent one Day in passing through Switzerland from Geneva and Lausanne to Zurich another from Zurich to Cannstatt and leave d. V., in a few hours for London expecting d. V., by travelling express Day Ana night to reach Home on Friday evening. I shall Only mention that the interest of the Gen Eva conference culminated on. Last lords Day by the joint participation of the lords supper the scene was both affecting and Sublime. Four languages were employed m the service a italian French German and English and Many nations were represented there a full notice of this scene and season i shall Reserve for my next the late or. Or Monson never forgot himself in his trails his religion was unaffected by change of scene or of society. It so pervaded his whole being As to form a second and a better nature travelling from Bath to London on one occasion he found him self inside the coach in company with two Young ladies the daughter is As he under stood before the journeys end of a Oler Gyman m the neighbourhood of London the Young ladies had just been visiting the brow of barrenness shaggy and Thunder split Hills surrounding narrow valleys and water courses a land for a great part Bare in the Wrath of nature when not swaddled in sudden tempest and whirlwind Aland of Lions and wild goats and wild asses and ostriches and Hawks stretching toward the South and a horses clothed with Thunder and eagles making their nest on High a land through whose transparent air night looked Down in All her Queen like majesty All her most Lustrous ornaments on the South blazing through All its Chambers As with solid Gold the North glorious with Arcturus and his suns the Zenith crowning the heavens. With a diadem of White and Blue and purple stars such the land in which this author lived such the sky he saw and can we wonder that poetry dropped on and from him like ram from a thick tree and that grandeur a grandeur almost disdaining Beauty preferring firmament Fpo Flowers making its garlands of the whirlwind a became his very soul. The Book of Job shows a mind smitten with a passion for nature m her simplest most solitary and elementary forms gazing perpetually at the great shapes of the material universe and reproducing to us the infant a infinite wonder with which the first inhabitants of of a Oler-1 the world must have seen their first Sunrise their first Thunder storm and their first Moon waning it their first Midnight of our lord a while it is Day for the i search for excuses to evade its claims night Someth in which no Man can claims it might be a question if Homes As we have Opportunity let us do Good thus constituted have any claims upon Liv unto All men. / ing human hearts.

Repent it and re Don meet of care a place wherein the soul Gret it forever in eternity. Can act itself in the Light of innocent sheer a fullness. The Man who published a Book of Little worries. There is indeed no More common error than to estimate the extent of suffering by the greatness of the causes which have Pio diced it we mean their greatness As regards the amount of notice which they attract. The anguish of an emperor who has lost his Empire is probably not one Whit parlor games has been of More Benefit than Many Sermon Zers. No Good is lessened by its teachings no frivolity is inaugurated it opens up a new Avenue to happiness. It is the new emotion the it the Monarch longed for. Enlightened parents understand the necessity of enlisting All attractions and in a those Homes where they practice in this greater than that of a poor lady who loses fight there is no discontent no discord her Little Means m a swindling Bank and is Anoel and every one is Happy obliged to take away her daughter from school a Nodi to move into an Interior dwelling Noi is it in worthy of remark in thinking of sym i by with human beings in suffering that scrubby look my Little men with weak hair and awkward Demeanour and not m the least degree gentleman like May through Domestic worry and Bereave ment undergo distress quite As great As heroic individuals six feet four inches m height with a Large Quantity of Raven hair and with eyes of remarkable depth of expression. It is probable too that in the lot of Ordinary men a ceaseless and count fall of satan m a a Paradise this is not a picture removed to a distance from is to be looked at with wonder it is a lesson for each of us.

Monson quietly. A a i think it is just talking about religion All Day Long and nothing else. A a now i done to think that was Ever intended a was his quiet answer. The door was now fairly opened and or Monson pursued the conversation we May Well suppose with that genial earnestness and consummate tact which distinguished him. One of the Young ladies however stood out. Very resolutely against his views of religion and when the coach stopped at the Cross Road where friends were waiting to receive them or. Monson said to her a Well my Young Friend let me request that before you go to bed jod1gbt you will read a chapter of your Bible and Pray to god that he will enlighten you upon these a a Well a she replied a a i am much obliged to you at a a a not at All obliged a said he a a for i am always obliged to defend the truth whenever i hear it called in Many years passed away and the circumstance had almost vanished from his memory when he was invited to a dinner by some members of his Hureh who had recently spent an evening in another part of London and had met with a Clergyman and his wife who spoke mob of or. Mor a son and were very desirous to. See him. The object of this party was to Supply the Honpor Tummy.
