last decade as to rei|uire sonic of the 
methods taught in this hook a little 
old fashioned awitehing ought to heal 
ministered to them to lead them hack 
to tile old paths. 

Mr. Moody who has attained much 
eeh hrity hy his devotion to Sahhath 
Schools has organi/.eil a series of chil- 
dren's meetings here in whiidi he has 
sueeeedi'il in interesting very many 
hy ((uile an original idea. When he 
was in Kansas not long ago, somehody 
gave him a hird which he hrought 
home with him and preseiitO'l to the 
hoy or girl w ho hrought in the largest 
nuiuher of scholars in a given time. 
B.'fore |iresenting the hird, there 
was a “Bird Meeting” Indd at which 
all the verses in the Bihle which con- 
taiiic'l the word “hiril” Were reiieateJ. 

This was so siieeessiul that a “Baiiih 
Meeting’’ was held. .Mr. .Mooily, in 
giving an ai-eoiint of it said. The 
I ,amh hrought i n so many scholars 
that the hoy' who received it, saiil 
that “he should feel gnilly to take a 
lanih away w hii-h had done so much 
goo'l, ami gave it hack, ami we kept 
that lanih going and would have him 
going yet if some scaniji hml’iit have 
stole him.’’ 

'flic l!ev. W. W. Harsha, of the

of Brotherly Love not Kuinllu'g* 

In tlie Cinruniiili of June 

“.I, appears a long commiinicatioii 
from Hr. Monfort aiming to correct 
and rebuke the errors of its Albany' 
corres|iondent and of the (hlzeUe it- 
self, in reference to the re-union strat- 
egy in the Assembly. And in the 
same ]ia] er, of July' lid, ajijicars a re- 
S]Minso I'rom the Albany' corres])ond- 
ent, who tells some tales out of school 
which we had not heard before. 

Hr. Montfort.’s  'ommunication seems 
to us utterly jioinlless and aimless, 
excejit the aim of it bo iirosumed to 
have been to let the (iazette's readers 
know that Hr. Monfort W'as promi- 
nent in the Assembly and that a good 
deal has been written about him and 
his doings there. H is communication 
consists in (hief part in ro}ieating 
wdiat hail been said in the (lazettc, 
with very' little that we can find in 
the way of contradicting it. The 
amount of the whole matter seems to 
be that the re-union men got up a 
siranni ii/ in the Assembly, inakingDr. 
Monfort the king-bee; and, as all well- 
informed men w'ould anticipate, the 
sirdrm linally settled around the king- 
bee in a very i-idiculous place. 

But at the close of the communica- 
tion, “ Biehard is himselt' again.” Dr. 
Mfmfort's genius for head-counting, 
blazes forth in the following brilliant 
style for the discomliture of the anti 
union men: 

And nOw, .Messrs Kditors, as you 
have been led into error, and as you 
seem to be in atlliction in regard to 
the ]iros| ccts of re-union, permit me 
to administer a little comfoi't to your 
W'oumled s])irits. 1 will then say' that 
the iM'ospects of \inion were never so 
bright as at |(rcscnt in the eyes of 
union men, and never soatllicting to 
those who are o]hm)sciI to it. We have 
:i liasis which is satisfactory' to the 
three-fourths or more, ol our Church. 
.Such a basis as the enemies of union 
at first said w'o must have, but co\ild 
not obtain— the very basis which was 
settled by' the I’hiladeljdda Conven 
tion. It is the very' basis w'hich the 
st:indards of the Iw'o ehiiridies contain, 
with Hr. .Smith’s explanation adopted 
:it l’hiladel](hia,and the (iurley'amend- 
ment, which is ]irecisely' what was 
agreed ujion in the puiblic interview 
between Hrs. Hodge and Fisher, on 
the ]datform in I’iiiladelphia, which 
was received with so much a])jilause. 

'I'hat I do not err, when 1 say' 
that the basis is acceptable to three 
fourths of our (Ihurch, let me say' 
that it was a])]n'oved at Albany' by' a 
vote of one hundred and eighty-sev 
en to sixty-eight, and that a careful 
count of the votes, by Presbyteries, 
shows, that, :is far as the (Miurch has 
acted, more than four-tilths of the 
Presbyteries are in favor it. 'I'he ba- 
sis becomes of ctl’ect as soon as three 
! loui'ths of the Preshyteries approve of 
'flius till' the (lommissioners of 

body vetoed any' change in .Mr. Har- ninety-four Presbyteries have voted 
sha’s pastonite. Coming to Chicago | to ajiprove of it, while only twenty' 

three have voted against it. The 
vote of nine Presbyteries was divided 
eipially', one Commissioner of each 
voting for, and one against it. Only 
fourteen Presbyteries failed to vole, 
or to be represented in the last As- 
sembly'. t)fthe Presbyteries voting 
for and against, wo liave three more 
than four to one. If ten ol' the tour- 
teen not voting, and of the nine whose 
votes were diviih'd, shall vote for the 
basis it will be carried. If the Pres- 
byteries not represented shall vote 
about as others Imve done, eleven or 
twelve of them will go for the b:isis, 
and 1 feel Iplite confident that a ma- 
jority of the divided Presbyteries will 
also ill) so. 1 .Jill no|. however, 
]iro|ihcsy. The oTpusilion is active 
and earnest. the twenly'-three 

Presbyteries that voted against the 
basis, thirteen are ofthe border Syn- 
ods of Baltimore, Kentucky, Missouri 
and Nashville. 'I’hcy will be as jicr- 
sistcnt as they' have been in o|iposition 
to the action of the Church on slavery 
and the war. Ofthe rest many' are 
like iiiinded, and they' will never give 
ii]i. We have much to do, and we 
should be very active, or reunion may' 
sutler delay'. In the basis we have 
agreed that in the settlement of the 
ipicstion, oneo])]»oser of reunion shall 
have as much jiower as three who fa- 
vor it. 'I'o secure three Presbyteries 
for the liasis for one against it, will 
rcipiire great diligence on the jiart of 
the friends of reunion. If three- 
fourths of the Presbyteries fail to ap- 
jirove the basis before the meeting of 
the Assemblies of IStib, the cause will 
not liiil. As the friends of reunion 
have steadily grown in numbers for 
years j.ast, so they' will increase until 
the consummation. Be of good cheei’i 
J. C. Momout. 

'I'he anti-union men ought to be 
duly grateful for the generosity' ol 
Hr. .Montfort and his ] arly' in giving 
ihcm the odds of three to one. 'I'o 
be sure that odds seems to be given 
by' the eonstitntion ofthe church; but 
then it is pm'ely'of grace that Hr. Jl. 
and friends allow the constitution to 
give anybody' any' protection! 

'I'he Alb:iny corresjiondent, who 
seems to be slow to learn reverence 
for his new blaster, returns to tho 
charge, and alter some not very' reve- 
rent remarks about Hr. .Montfort in- 
ijid gns I n thg fol l o yydmr rev ’.'1 
and prophesy in^i^^'^ 

If any' one who knows Hr. Yl.’s 
position will read those articles, Im 
will discover very' clearly' that tho 
real ground of Hi'. .M.’s dissatisfaction 
is the presentation 1 therein made of 
the marvelous and humiliating way- 
in which he and the majority' of the 
tVsseinbly — more than twenty of whom 
I alone have heard jiersonally declare 
they would never follow his lead 
again -engineered the action of tho 
lYsscmbly. 1 refrain, at jircsent, Irom 
entering further into tho inside histo- 
ry of all that transaction, and simply' 
say that if it is necessary to put in 
light things not yet come to light in 
reference to Hr. Alontfort’s relation 
both to the “Alontfort’s addendum” 
and the “Hall resolution,” the fear and 
the \)ressiire under which both tliese 
were olVered to tho Assembly' and 
jiasscd, and the ellort made to induce 
tho clerk ofthe Assembly' not to tele- 
graph the latter to tho Harrisburg 
Assembly, the inliirniation and the 
conversations jicrtaining thereto will 
be forthcoming. Nothing butpositivo 
fear that the “/ms/s,” though passed 
by the Assembly', might be defeated 
in the Presbyteries, induced the offer- 
ing of either the Montfort or Hall 
paper. But every one saw tho lolly 
of tho “addendum.” What avails it 
to say' we “prr/'ir” the standards pure 
and simple, if y'ct we v'ote for some- 
thing contrary' to this’/ Hence tho 
felt need lor something more than tho 
“addendiiin.” Hence the Hall reso- 
lution, in order to maintain orthodoxy' 
in tho United Church - but a resolu- 
tion directly' in contravention of tho 
objectionable clause in the first article 
of the basis itself! 

Notwithstanding the two meetings 
held in New York and Philadclpiiia, 
a lew day's ago, both in favor of re- 
union, there has been by' jiositive res- 
olutions no assertion ;»t tho comjiloto 
satisfactoriiiess ofthe basis as it is. In 
those meetings the basis was not even 
read, much was there a discussion 
of its merits. 'J'he Philadel|diia “Pres- 
byterian,” the Pittsburgh “Banner,” 
the “Northwestern Presby'terian,” are 
totally opposed to the basis as it 
stands. I'lveii the New York Observer 
“prefers” the Standards. Severe arti- 
cles already have been written against 
the basis, and from our personal in- 
tercourse with not less than half a 
hundred ministers, since tho Asseni' 
bly' adjourned, not more than si.x or 
seven of whom were in the Assembly', 
we latow that the basis gives great 
dissatisfaction. Some of the Presby- 
teries have voted aln«idy against it, 
and some that have voted, though not 
definitively’, in favor of it, will recon- 
sider their action. Already', in the re 
gion of Pittsburg and Alleheny', a 
calm, judicious and unanswerable “cir 
ciilar” has been issiieil, signed by such 
men as Professors Klliot, Jaeobiis 
Hodge, Wilson, ami Hrs. ..McKinney', 
Howard, Blair and some thirty' others, 
urging the Church not toapjirovo the 
basis as it stands, but to go for the 
“Bagleson amendment” — an amend- 
ment, the first that was ollvred in the 
Assembly, and voted down so uncere- 
moniously by' the Assembly', under 
the dictation of Hr. Monf n-t — tho on- 
ly' thing that can put the dcfei-tive ba- 
sis right, and deliver the union cause 

from the “muddle” inti^vhieh, as the 
Philadel])hia “Presbyler7in”say's,I)rs. 
.Monlfort, Hall, ami IhJ' who acted 
with them, got the matfi r of reunion.

A friend of ours wl^ has recently' 
visiteil jiortions ol%U c State of Ohio, 
gives us a most startling account of 
the ertect of the abolition gos]»el in 
utterly' obliterating  ;liurches which 
before the war were I.irge and lloiir- 
ishing, csjiecially' tloiio connected 
with the Methodist, ’^jiitheran, and 
United Presbyterian cliiirches. 

Our friend ti'lls ifs'^tliat in certain 
localities several Methodist churches 
are (dosed and in soiiu- cases are ut- 
terly' abandoned. 'I'he abolition gos- 
]'fl, first of all, drove till all the more 
jiioiis members, andi- lltho radicals 
to provide for the p .pcher’s salary, 
which (hey soon liijn.ime unwilling

Kev. J(din Maenaiightaii seconded 
the motion made hy' Kev. Hr. Kirk- 
patrick, ami in (biing so said: Fathers 
and brethren, I shall endeavor as f:ir 
as I can to iniit:ite the sjiirit in which 
my brother. Hr. Hill, ojiened this .Re- 
bate, and 1 hope I will be enabled ^to 
avoid in any' staicmeiit 1 may luaTvC 
anything calculated to prmliieeL irri- 
tation of feeling or to raise any par- 
ticular (luestion as between man and 
man. ( Hear, hear.) In a grave crisis 
like this, and with the momentous in- 
terests that are in the balance before 
our view, itwoiihl serve , no end what- 
ever to demomitrate that this man or 
the other man hadJiecU. inconsistent 
in that he was not now holding jire- 
cisely the same tbriii of o] inion re- 
garding cm-tain public matters as he 
had done in times pasjt. Sir, none of 
us arc infallible, nor does it follow 
that a man is inconsistent bccaiiso he 
does not jiresent the same asjiect to a 
jiarliciilar (jiiestion when the aspect 
of tho (Jiiestion itself is changed as 
he did before it was changed, cind 
when llu^vorld itself is making such 
strides, in its plans, jnirposes, and 
declarations as it is now doing, it 
would bo to my' mind the consi^j^euey 
of fully to maintain at all times jire- 
ciscly' the same front towards it. 
(Hear.) I would think very ill in- 
deed of the strategy of the general 
who, with a valiant army at his back, 
had taken uji a strong position, if he 
were to say', I am (hdermine'l to. stand 
here, let tho enemy fare as they' may;. 
His duty' is to accomniodate himself 
ami his skill to the jiosition he occu- 
pies in ri'gard to the. ad vers:ify, and 
to see to it that whatever ( hanges 
they may make, he would he true to 
his country', and true to the cause en-

Able Speech of Rev. John Hacnaugh- 
tan on State Endowment in Ireland. 

We imblished lust week a summary' 
of the debate in the Irish Assembly 
regarding the jirobable withdrawal 
by the (roverninent of the Itajium 
Donum or State grant, which for more 
than two hundred y'ears has annually' 
been given by the Irish and English 
Parliaments to the Presbyterians of 

With tho disestablishment of tho 
Episcopacy in Ireland, tho Ketjium 
Donum will cease, and tho brethren 
have taken occasion in this Assembly 
to read tlio civil powers a Iccturo 
upon tho relations borne by' tho 
Chundi to the State. Ono feature of 
this debate is at least gratifying, for 
it evinces that long dependence on 
the State has not altogether enslaved 
the church, “that many' remain unde- 
liled,”and that rather “than cat from 
the same dish with Pajiacy” a largo 
part of the Irish church will rely' 
upon their own unaided efforts to sus- 
tain the work ot^raco among them. 

Consjiiciious among the men who 
so nobly' volunteered to defend the 
“truth as it is in Jesus” appears tho 
name of Ilev. John Macnaughtan, 
who a few years ago came from the 
Free Church of Scotland at Paisley, 
to take charge of ono of tho largest 
and most influential churches in Bel- 
fast. During his short stay among 
Irish Presbyterians ho has won the 
hearts of his brethren and is regard- 
ed upon all sides as a leading man in 
tho struggle which is now forced ujion 
his adopted church. Trained amid 
tho trials and difficulties of the great 
disrujition in Scotland which eventu- 
ated in the Free Church movement, 
blessed by God with native talent and 
ability', rijie in y'ears, with a nature 
sollcned and purified by grace, cer- 
tainly the mantle could fall upon no 
one who is better adapted to wear it. 

Bringing with him from Scotland, 
the true nursery of Presbyterianism, 
the great jirincijiles handed down by 
his forefathers, he seems destined to 
fight the battle manfully', and tho re- 
sult of tho debate discloses tho fact 
that his burning words were not de- 
void of eff. - 

In order that our rea'lers m.ay form 
an idea of -ho issues involved we 

, ■ 'i.'TTflild lirffiieiit id 
action by the ( irciimstances that have 
brought IIS into oiir present jiosition. 
(Hear, hear.) It is not of our seek- 
ing that we arc called ujion to diseii.-is 
resolutions like those which Mr. G lad- 
sUiiie has inU'odjaceJ. 'i' resolii 
lions ol Mr. Gladstone have not boon 
introduced on flie jilea that our work 
has been inefficiently' jierformed — that 
we have not beei' doing our utmost to 
sustain the loyalty' of tho jieojile and 
Conserve Ihe jicace of Ireland. ( Hear.) 

I think the inlmissions brought out 
to ilay from the liji.sof eminent stati’s- 
nieii in connection with the rcjiort of 
tho dejiiitatioii that went to Govern- 
ment, are (jiiite siiHieiciit testimony 
ujion that subject. (Hear.) If tho 
h’e/jiinn Donum ofthe Irish Presbyte- 
rian Church is meddled with it is not 
because any Jiarty' in the State has 
declared that she was unfaithful to 
her trust, or unfaithful to her com- 
pact; and we must look, thorefore, at 
what has ajijiarently' been the moving 
Jiower timt has led t-tatesmon of liigh 
standing and of great eminence to 
come to the comdiision that has been 
arrived at in the House of Commons 
of this free country'. Will anybody 
question tliat tho one difliculty of the 
State has been the demands of the 
Church of Romo in Ireland for reli- 
gious equality'. (Hear.) Is not that 
the matter that has jnizzled and an- 
noy'd! and jicrjilexed tho Government 
of this country ? 'Plio great difliculty' 
has been how to deal with the inces- 
sant and continued demands of the 
Cliiirch of Home, that Church being 
in this Jiosition, that a large section of 
this country, I mean so far as jiopula- 
tioii is concerned, were in her com- 
munion — that there were in this 
country nine Roman Catholics to ono 
member of the Prelatic sect, and that 
thoAloman (falholic sect in this coun- 
try' was nine times more numerous 
than the Presbyterian sect. This 
state of things was jiressed continual- 
ly' by' tho jirelates of tho church ujion 
tlie Government; and tho largo en- 
dowment enjoy'd! by' tho Church of 
England in this country' has been 
constantly' referred to and contrasted 
with tho small number of the adhor- 
onts of tho church in tho country'. 
The jioliticians and statesmen have 
looked at this matter not as w'e do, 
but through the Word of God. W hen 
wo look at tho matter wo say that 
numbers are nothing, that truth is 
overy'thing; and we, helioving that wo 
hold the truth as it is in Christ, be- 
lieve that stafi-smen ought to under- 
stand and hold it too; and that while 
the truth is to bo maintained error is 
not tq be maintained. 'I'hey' won’t 
look at the matter through that me 
diiim, lor the House of Commons is 
comjiosed of men of all religions, and 
of some of no religion whatever. It 
is in vain, then, to hojio that they will 
look ujion tho matter as a question 
betwemi truth and error, without 
taking into accountUho numbers of 
those from whom tlicsi demands jiro- 
eced. Htatesmeii have therefore felt, 
whether righlly orwrongly', that they' 
were shut iiji to one of two courses — 
they must a'hijit either the levelling 
up or the levelling down sy'stem 
(hear, hear) — they' must either give 
far more hirgely out of the revenues 
of this country for the maintenance 

of Pojiery' than they' have ever done, 
or they must jiiit all jiarties on a level, 
giving to all a fair field and no favor, 
and tills latter was to beaccomjilished 
by taking away' the 'endowments al- 

1 feel that, so far as I can judge of 
jiiiblic matters at the jiresent time, 
ihere is but this alternative before us 
— feither to ajjjirove of a general dis- 
endownicnt, and to demand that, if 
that is the course to be adojfted, it 
shall be fully' and Smjiartially carried 
out — (hear, hear) — or to look forward 
to it as a certainty' that Rome shall 
bo endowed. (Hear, hear.) You may' 
talk about doing this thing or the 
other, but you have before y'ou the 
sjiirit and temjier of the House of 
Commons, and at this moment you 
must know jierfiebfry' well that, H* we 
go forward and urge tho continuance 
of our endowments, the House will 
say, ‘ Tiieii we must maintain the en- 
dowments of tho Church of England 
in Ireland, and we must also endow 
tho Chun h of Rome.” I think it 
very likely' that many' of the leading 
jmlitieians would be very glad if you 
would enable them to do that. (Hear, 
hear.) But 1 trust that we will not 
put ourselves in that jiosition. I 
would also say' that in the resolutions 
of Dr. Dill, and in the amendments 
submitted by' Dr. Kii'kjiatrick, too 
much is attributed to the Jtegium 
Donum as to the effect it has had ujmn 
the extension of this church. (Hear, 
hear, and no.) 1 think that this 
church is jiervaded by a thoroughly 
evangelical sjiirit. (Hear.) No doubt 
we have been hcljied and aided by' the 
grant, but, if it were swejit away to- 
morrow, I do not believe that any- of 
our churches or any of our stations 
in this country would cease to be 
maintained. (Apjilause.) "While we 
should exhibit a (I lie amount of thank- 
fulness f()r small mercies, 1 should not 
like if we felt the slightest ajijirehen- 
sion that we would be crijijiled by the 
withdrawal of the grant. (Hear, 
hear.) 1 have every contiiJence in 
the great jirincijilcs oftliis Presbyter i- 
anchuridi. fliave such confidence in the 
men with whom it is my' honour to be 
associated in the ministry' of this 
Church, that I have tho conviction 
that wo will be found adequate to tho 
emergency' when it shall come — I am 
not one of those who have said to my 
Presbyterian brethren, throw up your 
/{eijium Donum. 1 never said that, and 
1 don’t think that I had any' warrant 
for so (bung. If t w eri j Aix si -) 'l l(0|n.i

met by this (jiieRtioii, Was there na 
soniclliing wrong in y'Oiir keejiing it 
so buig, when y'oii gravely make tliis 
jirojiosition for ceding it. ( Hear, hear.) 
The grand difference betw'een tlie jiro- 
jiosai of Dr. Dill and Dr. Kirkjiutrick, 
b'dli of whom arc most wise and ju- 
dicious counsellors, is that Dr. Dill 
thinks we ought still to go bi Parlia- 
ment and ask them to continue this 
endowment to us; and Dr. Kirkjjat- 
rick thinks that the time has gone 
jiast lor that. Whatever the General 
.\ssembly' may do, 1 hojie they' will 
not go to Parliament to ask for the 
continuance of the grant. (Hear.) I 
say that, not because of the question 
of our right to have the endowment — 
I believe y'ou have tho right — but in 
the face of the resolutions jiassed by 
the House of Commons by' a very' 
large majority, in the face of the gen- 
eral jmbiic sentiment ofthe country,! 
think it would be a very unwise — and 
jiardon mo, ilr. Moderator,ifl say' it — 

1 think it w'ould bean undignified jio- 
sition for us to go to ask for a contin- 
uance of jBcj/fum (Hear and 

ajijilause, with cries of “No.”) 
If, under these circumstances, we 
were to go to Parliament with 
such a request, I think we w'ould be 
simply jiutting the Church in a false 
position. I, for ono, do trust and be- 
lieve that this Presby'terian Church 
will stand ujKin its dignity'; and hav- 
ing given the House of Commons an 
ojjjmrtunity' of know'ing the jirinci- 
jdos on which the grant had been re- 
ceived, it should leave that body' to 
take such further jiroceedings as it 
should deem right, and as to such fu- 
ture j)r(x;eecUng8 the Assembly' will 
meet and say' what action wo should 
take and what jiosition we should as- 
sume. (Hear, hear, ami ajijilause.) 
1 am no* yet just jirejiared to take 
the advice of my y'oung friend Mr. 
Gray, that if y'ou can get jiatronage 
abolished you will give me a return 
ticket to Scotland- (Iiaiighter.) I 
may say hero, once for all, I have 
cast in my lot to this Church. (Ap- 
jilaiise.) My design is to live and 
die in it, if it lets me. (lionewed 
apjilause.) And, Sir, 1 look forward 
with much hojie, with much exjiecta- 
tion of the results of these movements 
in Parliament. 

Sir, it has been said tho only 
body' to be served by a general disen- 
dowinont would be the Roman Cath- 
olic Church, and tho only' jierson to 
congratulate us, if these results were 
brought about, would bo Cardinal 
Cullen. I hol(l the very' ojijiosito 
ojiinion. (Hear, hear.) I know very' 
well it serves tho jiiirjiose of the Ilo- 
mish hierarchv' in Ireland to say that 
they don’t want any' (roverument 
money. Believe that who may'. 
Credat Judaeus. Who that knows 
the history of that Church would be- 
lieve a word of it? Sir, nothing 
would delight them more than that 
there should bo j»ropo.sed, though not 
just immediately, an endowment of 
the jiriesthood, and that there should 
be some largo claim put in by this 
Church which would enable Popery' 
to say', “Give it to them by all means! 
(Jive it to them, but give us just nine 
times what you give to them.” First, 
tnere would be an endowment of Po- 

jiery in the worst of all forms — mo- 
nastic institutions, convents and mo- 
nasteries, with monks in grey', blue, 
black — and we would be in a len-fold 
worse Jiosition than we aia*. But. Sir, 
have we nothing fn g:iin? If Ihis jilan 
projiosed by' Mr. Gladstone, is carried 
out, 1 think we will gain a better 
Jiosition than we have at jiresent in 
relation to those bodii's -the Roman 
Catholic and Ejiiscojcd Church (if 
Ireland. (Hear.) 'fhere will he an

There will he an end juit to the claim

1 know if the emergency' comes,lhero 
will be imitators of his sort on the 
part ol' the Prosbylerian ehler.s and 
laity'. (Ajijihiuse. ) We have nothing 
to fear, therefore, on that score; and, 
as regards Rome, is there anything to 
be gained by' this general (lisendow 
ment if it takes jilace? 1 say there is 
much to be gained. The agitation in a 
n.'ition kejit for ye:irs ujion years in a 
state of frctfulness and uneasiness, by' 
the constant claims of that Church to 
get UJI and uji in tho hojie it would be 
made the Established Church ofthe 
country, will be juit loan end. I don't 
mean to say that R.ime will cease 
from her demands at the treasury. 
(No, no, and hear, hear.) I never said 
so. As long as grass grows anil water 
runs, and the Pojie remains in his 
Jilace, and the Man ol Sin is not de- 
stroyed, and there ia money' in (he 
British Excheijuer, Rome will find 
some way' of making demands on it; 
but we will take away from them what 
has seemed in the eyes of many' jioH-

When this disendowment lakes ohue

The Great Movement toward ^e 

Emancipation of the Christian 

Church in Britain. 

That llio la-ailoi-H of Iho ('iimiiioii 
tccultli Ilia)' he kept advised of the re- 
markable revolution f'oiii!' on in the 
opinions of the Britisli com ernini; 
the relation of the Slate to the Chnreh 
and of the discussions of those f^real 
jtrinciples of Church independence 
and spirituality carried on there as in 
this country, we have aimed to report 
al nost without remark in reiamt num 
fjors ot the ('ommoiiircaUh the substan- 
tial |ioints of the ai‘,!;ument on i-ither 
aide. — First, of the Kiiijlish discussion 
of the Irish Kslablishmeiits. Xexl. of 
the discussion on I'nion with the 
United I’resby terians in the (iener- 
al A.ssembly of the l-'l-eo t-huia h of 
Scotland, anil lastly of tho jiroposi- 
lions in the Irish (leneral Assembly 
touching the luujiinu /hniiiiu endow- 
ment *of the Irish Fresbv'teriau 
Church. With these facts before them, 
our readers areemibled the more re:id- 
ily to comprehend the groat issues in- 
volved alike in these British ilLseiis- 
sions and in tho Amei'ican discus- 
sions between tho A'orthern and 
Southern (fhurchesin reference to the 
proper sphere of tho tfhureh of Christ. 

It will bo ajiparent to every intel- 
ligent reader that one and the same 
great iiuestion underlies all these dir- 
ciissions, however different the forms 
in which the issues are jircsented. 
And hence, whether the ai'gument be 
for and against the dis-establishment 
of the Irish Fpiscop;il (.'hureh; for 
ami agiiinst tho union of the several 
bodies in dissent from the Fstablisheil 
Church of Scotlond ? and against the 
withdrawal of tho lieijium Donum 
from Irish I’resbj'terians; or for and 
against Church interference in the j)0- 
litical issues of the United States; 
still the same great topic forms the 
staple of tho arguments in all these 
debates :ilike.-viz: — Is tlic State 
among a Christian |)eo])lo bound to 
recognize tho religion and (,'hurch of 
Christ and back the Church with the 
authority and influence or tho ])ecu- 
niaiy aid of tho Slate? And is it 
a function of the Church iind her 
ministry on tho other Imnd to ' 
i; I I and spiritual power to 

measures of the S 

!f the Fuglish diseu.ssions, this 
issm* is dii eclly made in the ] roposi 
tion to dis establish the hliiiscopal 
Church in Ireland. In the Scottish 
discussion the same issue is indirect- 
ly made by tho i ertinaeify of certain 
Free Kirk men. who refuse union 
with tho United I'reshytei'ians except 
tho latter will make the ‘-claim of 
i-jght" — that i.s, the doctrine of tho 
right of the fihureh to demand and 
receive support from the State — a 
term of union and communion. In 
the Irish disi-ussion, the issue is di- 
rectly presented again in the assertion 
of the dut}- of the State to continue 
the Donum in considcriilion of 
services rendered I he Slate by the 
Church. In the American di.sciission. 
the issue is madedircctiy in the prop- 
!)sitions to make the Nation a t'hris- 
tian Nation by enaci ment of its ]» - 
litical constitution, and in the |ir;iefi- 
cal emploj-ment of the Church with 
its ordinances ;ind courts for the sup- 
port ol'certain political theories and 

No thoughtful reader of these de- 
bates, can tiiil to perceive th.-it the 
fundameiit:d ei-ror underIving the 
views of the grc;it inajoriU of both 
jiartie.-) to the discussion, is (he illogi- 
 -al rea.soning from the doctrinal 
premise of the llciidship of Christ 
nilij.'‘'“'^ b' ll'o conclusion of 
the obligatioir^tf the nation as well 
as of the chun-h acknowledge thaf 
llcadshii  of (Mirist by public civil 
enactment, !iud thereby- become in 
fact a joint interpreter of the revealed 
word of’ Christ. And of course if the 
natioi^s authorized to interpi-et the 
reveided word it is bound to enforce 
the ;iceeplance of and obedience to 
the revciiled (loci rine ami duty. 'This 
blunder ])eri)etu:illy, repi-ated from 
the days of Andrew Melville to the 
prc.sent, has led to all the iipostasi*‘s 
of the Scottish Church and caused the 
secession from it of all the ]iioty and 
spirituality which bj- successive revi- 
vals have been restored to that church 
only to be driven out of it. 

It has ever been a matter of amaze- 
ment to ustlmt Andrew Melville, with 
his compeers of I.08II, and fleorge 
(rillospie, with his eompeej-s of llii:!. 
should have discerned so clearly that 
great truth of the entire i mie| endenee 
ami spiritmdity of the church; and 
tho authorit3’ of the church iis sole 
l)Ossessor of the Oracles of Cod, itnd 
,-et should allow the chui-ch, under 

. lead of politicians, to become en- 
icd in any way in f;ital Jilliance

-.serted and expounded moi-e clearly 
than tjeorge (.iillespie the generic 

dill'erence between the fund ions of 
the Slate esfabli.sbcd by Cod as his 
ordinance with the light of nature 
ami leason for its guide anil rule ot 
faith, and tho church government es- 
tablished by Christ with the revealed 
word as its sole guide ;ind rule ot 
faith. And yet they strangely sub- 
mitted to the diplomacy of iiolilicians 
and sdlowed the church to bcconu- 
enslaved under guise of being pro- 
tected iigainst violence, and under 
]iroinise of support Irom the lull 
treasury of the nation rather than 
fri'nn the otVerings of the Uord's |ioor. 
Still moic surprising is it that Chal- 
mers and the men ot the. disruption 
of 18 i:;, should not only Imvc so neai - 
ly grasped the truth on this subject, 
and actually rated by c.\|icri 
nicnt that the truth can be ,supportcd

Chureh in a way .satisfactory to itself, 
without any special regarii to the inliii- 
eiicc which this action might have upon 
the reunion of thatehureh with our own. 

There has been a wide di,s.satisfaetion 
with the iiosition in which our chureh 
wasplaeeil, in reference to the Southern 
I're.shytei-ian eliurches, hy theonli nances 
of the" 1‘illshurg .\ssenihly in l,SIJ."i. There

.Such a change in the views and fi-el- 
ings of tile church 'latiirally hred a de- 
sire to change the relations exi.sting be-

And ought the Southern cliurcli to

cepted at the . 'south. If it i.s accepted in 
Ihespiril made m:inifest by the 
/^irxfn/t'yi'iu, we think the aelion will sulliee for .some years to come. 

2. As to the objection growing out of 
the prospective union between the New 
and Oldsschool I’reshyterian cl.urehes, 
we do not think that it conies with any 
gr:ie . from the organ of ii chnreh that 
li:is already taken toils bosom all the 
.New-school nun which it could liiid in 
the territory w hi.-h it i over.s. Nor is the 
ex pei't at .on tieit lh “ “belfir elements”

tile proee-s of union, and that Ihe-e will 
naliiralty e.iab-sc.. w ill. Southern I'res-

adoption, l.y both eblirelies, of the Wests 
minster ( 'onfession of Kailh, the frag- 
iiieiils which w ill iloal away will lie I’l'W

The deiiguid which the Sunlliirii 
!' n xhnU I'liin makes for repeal of all our 
chureh deli vertinees from “the year iHlil 
to the year |sii7‘” i.s simply l reposlcr- 
ous; anil its curt avowal lhat no “lower 
terms c:in bo aeceplcil,” is in our view 
of it, presuinpluons and uiinece.ssary. 
We have not spoken of “terms” a.s yet. 
Wi. have not come to lhat j.oint in our 
action. When we come to it, as we 
doubtless will, w'heii the Southern Prrx- 
ti /t( ricin ceases to represent the .Sonth- 
« rn Uhureh, we will not talk niueh of 
higher or lower terms. Wi  will unile 
them upon the ('onfession of l•■ailhof the 
churches, and leave the ai'tion of both 
chnrehes to stand for the jiidgnient of llu' 
generations of I'resby terians which are 
to come after us. 

We know lhat the action of the .\lba- 
ny .-Assemtily was taken in the spirit of 
entire kindness to our brethren of the 
.Soul Ik'I'Ii   'hureh. It is the i.rolfer of

lhat by the larger portion, even 
intelligent British thinkers, he would 
be regarded as an inijiraetical lover of

Christian Unity. 

Al i'..ysKs. Fni roits: The. church of 
Christ at tin' j.resent lime, while )ios- 
sesseil (,t a slroio' desiri' for organic 
unity, ajijiears in , great juirt to have 
lost  i;;htoflhal .'///’/ //(/((/ unity SO iiii- 
jircssivel} taught in 1 st. Cor. 12 : and 
.lohn IT. In tin' lalti'i' pa.ssage tho 
unity ofthe Trinity is used to illus- 
Irali' th.'it of (.'lirisi ians. There exists 
lii'i'e a   onimnnlly of inli'resis, feelings 
and will. (And this charaeteristie of 
the sjiirilual body of ( .‘lirist, so diverse 
from anyl hing limnd in the world, is 
;in alleslai ion of tlii  divine mission 
of our Lord a means whereby the 
( 'hrislian eomniiinily demonstrate the 
I ruth of their religion and glorify their 
lo'ih'i'iin'r. I n one resj/i'ct ( 
ernnu'iit) onr ehiireh ver} justly, I 
think-, claims to come m :irer realizing 
till' unity ofthe boil\- ol Christ than 
any other deiiomin.-ilion. But while 
there is a unity in tho framework of 
our jiortion of the great sjiiritiial 
Teinjile, this is wiinting to a sad e.x". 
tent among its jiarts. Here we find an 
individiialily resulting in a neglect if 
not :in ignoring of this unity. 

In some of our churches, members 
worshiji .Sabbath after i8:ibballi with- 
out jierhap.s knowing, even hy sight, 
niemhers of the same (liurcli. And 
Ihis they call soriid w'oi'ship. 

TIo' Ipiestion is often asked, why it 
is lhat the Presbyterian tihurch seems 
aibijiled to a particular i-lass of the 
Community and makes so little jiro- 
gress among the masse.s? It can liardly 
he ow ing to our systi in of doctrine. 
'I’liis is clear and logical, the one which 
the Holy (ihost, sjieaking through the 
apostle Paul, cxjiounded from the jier- 
sonal teachings of our Lord. And -‘the 
common jieoj/le heard him gladly.’’ 
From whatever causes this evil may 
arisi'. it is owing in jiart 1 think to our 
nu'inbers loosing sight of their one- 
ness. (io into a Bajitist or Alcihodist 
church and you will ju'obably Iind all 
the members personally acipiainted. 
greeting each other with the title of 
"Brother or Sister.’ 'I hey are often 
said to be clanish. In 'part this may bo 
true: but still it is more like the com- 
munity of feeling which j/ervades the 
ju-imilive Christians, and w hich should 
jiervade Chri.stiana of fhg present day, 


('t'al Assembly in j- 'gard to the. 
Southern Church, luld then' seems to, 
be a general stiTTT''ol uneerlaint}' lelt 
as to whether it should be acceptedi 
as favorable or not." 

'rile "North Carolina Presbyterian ' 
is not one ofthe jiajiers coiurilaiued «/!!’’ 
by the '■( Ibscrver,’’ and ot course is 
not at :dl liable to the insiijuatron 
thrown out. AVe imblished oft the 
reRoliitions, as they apjiearcd in the. 
N’orlhern jmjiers, lull}' w'illi-ng to give 
the Northern chureh the beHclit ofthe 
whole serit-s and every sentiment e.x- 
jiressed therein. .And we are very 
.sun- lhat no such motive :i.s tho ‘(lb- 
server” inlima(es could have prompt 
ed the Kditor of any Southern Pres- 
bylcrijin (/api-r toomit the third reso- 
lution. AA'o ire not at all afraiil to 
let our jieople know lhat “the way is 
now o|/en for tho reign of union and 
jicaee." The Way open indeed, "for 
the reign ofunion and jieace! ” How? 
Because the .Northern Chun-li, in its: 
amazing clemency and nnrev, has: 
lilti'd from us the rod of eeeh siastie.-lll 
chustiscmcnl! AVe are graeiousl-»; i;ee - 
ognized as a "si-jiarate and indepeii.i.lj 
cut " body of ( 'hrist ians! .A '.id wi.' are 
to be treated as “other bram.he.s of 
the I’resbylcrian (’hnivrt" .Ami 
when our jieople find oult all of this, 
in s| ilo ofthe eilitor.s, llu-j,t are seeking 
to keoji f hem ill igiioranee, they will 
be “glad ” lhat -‘Uie way is now open 
for the reign of union and pcaee. ’ It 
is true, (hat the ehiil'i h th.'it extends 
this big olive braiieh. covered all over 
with 'jieace and union, ” "cannot jus- 
til}'" us in sefuirating from them. 
Who expected them to ‘‘jilstil’v us? 
AVe. certainly, have entertained no 
such e.x jMs Iaiion. 

As to the remark ofthe "Presbyle- 
riau" that (he .Southern I’resby tcri.-in 
journals have "said vi-ry little' loiieli- 
ing this jiction of the .Assembly at 
Alhany, we may be |)erniitled to 
make iw'o brief remarks: 

( I .) That action is liable to sevei c 
criticism; and if we had said much 
some things might have been s/tidi 
that had as well been left unsaid. AVe 
really love j/cace, and arc notdisjiosed 
unnecessarily to stir ii]/ jiassions amb 
jinyiidices. The assiiinj/lion in that 
jiaj/cr that the Presbytery of New 
Orleans and the .Synod 01 N.-ishville 
did not go with the .Soul hern Chureh., 
is gratuitous and false; tlu- .AssembI} 
at Albany knew it. With about a.-, 
nuu-h jirojiriety might jt have been 
claimed that the Presbytery ol (toncordl 
did not go with the.Southern (diiirch. 
But enough of this. 

( 2 .j AA'e “s:iid very little" 
this ac'tion, ln■l■(lus • we felt very little. 
As an item of current news, as mueb 
as anytldng else, we jmblislied the 
lu'eainble and resolutions. We. didi 
not regard tho action as a matter of 
any conseipiein-e, oneway or another, 
jierl’cctly salislicd that it would m .t 
all’ect in the least the character ur 
interests ol our own beloved (•hin'vb. 
The “general slate oj’ uncertainty., in 
the minds of .Soulhei'ii editors, iiboiit 
which the ‘‘Presbyterian’’ talks as 
though they were utterly conloundeil 
by this big gu'^froiu .Albany, is really 
a "general state” of indili'erenee aliout 
the whole matticr. “O wad somo 
powcA',” &c. — N. Fresbyteridu.

“Presbyterian,’, thus- notices the new 
I’resbyterian organization in that city 
under the care of Uev. Mr. I’ilzer; 

“The avowed intention of this move- 
ment is to Presbyterianism many 
who, nut desiring to remain in ehuiehes 
in eouneetion with our Assemlil.v, are 
likely to wander iilT to other folds. Po- 
litical i.ssnes have faded away from our 
churehes here. It would lie a jiit.v, at 
'this late day, to have aroused any of 
those old feelings whieh in any condi- 
tion do not promote tho growth of grace 
or the success of any thing that relates 
to the essential principles of Presbyteri- 
tins. If no such spirit be awakened by 
sneh a movement, there is room for an- 
other Presbyterian church about where 
'this one is proposed to bo located, and 
■we would not be .so sellish as to say that 
It might notaswell be under the care 
of the Southern -\s.sembly as of onrs, es- 
jH'cially as onr friends sei'in laggard in 
aiding us in alTording ample aeeommo- 
ilation for those who wish to worship 
with us in the churches we already have 
established. Mr. Pitzer seems to have 
come in a good spirit, and he will be re- 
ceived in a like Hiiirit by tho pastors 
of the Old Kehool churehes here. For 
the rest, it depends more upon the fu- 
ture coniluet of the movement, than uji- 
011 an.y thing else iu human hands, as to 
whether it shall jirovo a success or not. 
Hut there will be no obstacles laid in its

hot days to make siieh ex:iminalion of 
these large volumes as would Justify the 
expression of our opinion of their merits 
in detail. At a more aiispieioiis time 
We stiall probatily examine and notice 
them more earei'iilly. 1 n t be nie:intime 
we have gone fareiiongb to justify us in 
saying that these three volumes are not 
a wliit bebiiid any of Ibidr predeees.sors 
in .seholarsbi|i and ability. I n truth our 
aiipreeiatioii of the value of this im-

Dr. Poor seems to have sneeeeded admi- 
rably. We Inive made a mere i-iirsory 
examinalion only of tlie translations of 
the eommentaries on 'Timothy, 'J'itns, 
and I’bileiuon. Far enough, however, 
to become a good deal interested in tho 
trouble which it gives a man who ha.s 
adopted the New Jaigiand theories of 
the doctrine tonching slavery to 

iran^W; and transfer the stiirit of a 
Kiiropea »eommeiitator on pas.sages re- 
lating to that iiuestion. It is one of the 
siiigul^ features of the ethical and .scrip- 
tural discussion of slavery during the 
past thirty years that while the -Viueri- 
can anti-slavery man claims to t e such 
in accordance witli his interpretation of 
.Scripture, and therefore expends im- 
mense labor in “reeonstrueting” both 
Scripture and ancient history to suit his 
theory, his Hritish and Heriiian allies, on 
the contrary, are anti-slavery men in 
s|)ite and in the face of their interpreta- 
tions of Scripture. .So far as we have

Probably iio country In the world 
has bud Biicb n number of eccentric 
ministers of the frospel as Scotland; 
and no country has ever ])r()duce l 
nobler heroes of the faith than it has. 
Many of these odd and eccentric men 
were, in their day. mij;htj’ in the ex- 
position ol the Scriptures and ] ower- 
ful as ])reachers. The Itev. I'r. Rollers 
has collected many of the odd sayiiif's 
of these men, a few of which we pub- 

The Kev'. Mr. Shirra had repeatedly 
nominated one of his hearers to an of- 
fice in the kirk-session, but the (dlice- 
bearer elect had alwa^'s made some 
excuse immediately j)rior to his  u'di- 
uation, As the Dr. was ju-occedini' to 
the act of ordination on one occasion, 
the person in (juestion rose and said 
that ho was not suited for such an of- 
fice. Mr. Shirra ju’omjttly answereil 

V hishesitatinff hearer, “Come awadoon, 
do ye no ken that the .Master had ance 
need of an ass!” 

' The followin'' cases of rejiroof were 
conducted by hands less sparing, 'flic 
Ko%". 'W'^alter Dunlop, minister of the 
United Secession Church at Dumfries, 
was the most rejmted of Scottish cleri- 
cal hjaniorists of the age just jiassed. 

Sember of hiscongregation in hum- 
ble life had been presented with a gay, 
particolored vest by his son, a college 
student. It became ] art of his holiday 
attire,but was scarcely in keej'ingwith 
his ago or the gravity of his deport- 
ment. One Sabbath, while attending 
Divine service in Mr. Dunloi)’s church 
ho fell asleep during the lii-i-t ])rayer. 
and so remained in a standing posture 
when the others of the congregation 
had, at the close of the exercise, re- 
sumed their seats. .Mr. Dunloji looked 
at him attentively as ho announced 
his text, and thereafter exclaimed, 
“Willie, my man, yc ma 3 ' sit down 
a’ the folks, 1 think, hae nooseeii your 
braw new waistcoat.” 

The adoption of the Church Pai'U- 
phrases, about eight}' j'ears ago, had 
been keenly resisted in the ( enei-al 
Assembly b}' the older clcrgj', who 
maintained that it was C8.sentiall}' or- 
roneus to seek other aids to devotion 
than those contained in the metrical 
version of the Psalms. The Rev. Colin 
Campbell, minister of Renfrew, was 
especially oj)posed to the use of the 
Paraphrases, and had formed a reso 
lution that no comj osilions other than 
the Psalms of David should bo sung 
by his congi'egation. On the evenin 
of a commnnion Sabbath, the clerical 
brother who had been assisting him at 
Cables opened the service bj' giving 
out a portion of one of the lately au- 
thorised translations. This was intole- 
rable to Mr. Cam]ibell, who, before the 
precentor could .bcgin,started u]) from 
the side of his reverend assistant 
where ho had been seated, ami with 
emphatic utterance exclaimed, “Let 
us singai«u't of the 7;id P.salm, the sth 
V-urso — 

lurge ami great ilnminion 
From Fca to »ca extcml.’ 

Wi’ a’ J’cr hy'mn-hymnin’,’' ho added 
“is there anj' hymn like that?” 

Repeating tunes were c'piall}' ob 
noxious to some of the older divines 
The Rev. Robert Shirra, minister of 
the Secession Chuteh at Vctholm.-was 
peculiar in his manners, frequently 
exhibiting his eccentricities in the 
pulpit. Ilis precentor, John Cowan 
had, Avithout previously' consultiiq 
him, ventured to use a re] eating tunc 
Mr. Shirra, while the precentor was 
about to repeat the line, brought the 
pulpit Bible somewhat heavily on his 
head, exclaiming, “Stop, John! M'hen 
the Lord repeats, we’ll re])cat. 

The late Dr. Pringle, of Perth, had 
a habit of blundering in the ])ul] it 
Having occasion to quote the wor ls 
“from the crown of the head to the 
solo of the foot,” he mis iuolcd them 
thus — “from the crown of' the I’oot to 
the solo of the head,” and then correct- 
ing himself,fairly overcame the risible 
faculties of his audience by saying, 
“Toots! from the sole of the head io 
the crown of the foot.” 

When it was projiosed by' the 
sion congregation at JIadington to 
give a call to the afterwards celebr; 
ted Mr. John Brown, one of the !id 
herents of the church e.xprcssed his do 
cided opposition. Subsc'juent to his 
ordination, Mr. Brown waited on the 
solitary' dissentient, who was mena 
cing tijjjleave the meeting-house. “MMiy 
do yi)u think of leaving u.s?’ mildly' iii- 
quired Mr. Brown. “Because,” said 
the sturdy oppositionist,”! don't think 
 'Ou a good preacher.” “That is quite 
my jiwii 'jilifj, rej)licd the minis

‘ u and me to set 
up our opinions .ir^anst theirs. 1 have 
given in, y^.i! sec, and I would suggest 
you might just do so too.” “Weel, 
Aveel,” said the grumbler, (juite recon- 
ciled by Mr, BroAvn’s frank confes- 
sion, “I think 1 11 just folloAv y'our ex- 
ample, sir.” All differences Averc end- 

Objections to presentees occasion- 
ally' proceed from “causeless preju- 
dices.” In a majority' of the rural 
parishes, the use of a .M8. in the jml- 
pit would, till a recent jieriod, have 
been fatal to the cordial acceptability 
of any' presentee. “lie is a graund 

preacher!” whisjiercd an old spinster 
to her sister, on hearing a y'oung min- 
ister for the first time. “Whist, liell,” 
Avas the reply; “he's readin.’” “Read- 
in’ is he!” said the eulogist, changing 
her tone; “filthy' fallow! Ave’ll gang 
hamo, Jenny', and read our book.” In 
1762,the celebrated Dr. Thomas Black- 
lock Avas presented to the church- 
living of Kirkcudbright. The Doctor 
laboured under the loss of ey'esighl. 
M'’hen ho Avas pi'eachingone of his trial 
discourses as presentee, an old woman 
Avho sat on the pulpit stairs inquired 
of a neighbour Avhethor he was a read- 
er. “Ho canna bo a reader, for he's 
blind,” responded the neighbour. “Pm 
glad to hear’t,” rejoined \he old Avife; 
“I wish they were a’ blin !” — A cler- 
gyman in Forfarshire, Avho A\as con- 

ducting I'uldic worship in a tent or 
booth, ha l a portion of his notes car- 
ied off by the Avind. Jsot ])ercoiving 
the circum.stancc, he had announcc'l 
that be would iioav jiroceed to the third 
head or division of his discourse, llav- 
inir forgotten the jn-ccise title of the 
division, he hastily' turned over his 
notes, remarking two or three times. 
Thirdly, my friends; 1 say, thirdly;” 
n Avhich an  dd woman silting by' 
ejaculated: " 7V/o‘(/b/. sir. is aAva Avi 
tlie wuml; y'ondcr s it OAVer the kirk- 
A'ar l Ava.” 

Dr.'on, minister of the Asso- 
ciate church at Selkirk. Avas particu- 
irl\' at home in the ]iul])it. He Avore 
yellow Avig. “Will'll powdering Avigs 
became fashionable,” writes his biog- 
rajiher, “Mr.s. Lawson thought his 
should be conformed, and, Avithout 
telling him of it — for he never would 
have given his cousin', she poAvdered 
it one Sabbath morning before ho IclL 
for the jiuliiil. Il 'juilit on AvithoiU 
noticing tlie innovation. The day Avas 
A'ery' Avarm, ami in the midst ol his ser- 
mon he was 'lislurhed by the ]ierspi- 
ration drops on his face, rendered 
more than usually disagreeable by 
iheir mixture with the poAvder. Alter 
several a|iplications Avilh the hand- 
kerchief to his brow, and eyes, 
he at lengt'i took otl his Avig, and see- 
ing itall OA’i'i’ Avith Avhat he tliouglit 
AA'Us dust, he deliberately knocki'.l it 
on the sides of the pulpit, and shook 
out the ])owder: and having again jiut 
it on, he resumed liis discourse.” 

'I'he minister’s man,” se.xton. bead- 
le and jireeenlor, are all characters 
someAvhat associated Avith ministerial 

life in Scotland and their sayings 

and linings Iiua'c been handed doAvn 
•from generation to generation : 

William Wallace, a minister's man 
in the south of Scotland, had, in his 
A'Outh, I'requcntly obtained at the an- 
nual district ]iloAvingmatehes the pre- 
mium aAvarded to the first fdoughnian. 
The minister, forgetful of his ' inan’s” 
•efiulation, hail ventured to criticise a 
portion of his tillage. "Weel, minis- 
ter,’’ rejoined Wallace, “if ye can 
jireacli as Aveel us 1 can jdoAV, ye’ll talc 
the prize o a’ Nithsdale. 'flie minis- 
ter Avas silenced. 

The late Rev. Dr. Murray of A uch- 
terderran, Avho, at the jicriod of his 
death. Avas Father ot the Fstablislied 
Chureli, conducted his jmlpit duties 
alter ho had become an octogenarian. 
The )irecentor been long 
in ollice, and the insulliciency of his 
A'oeal ]iOAver.s had frequently been com- 
jihiined of to the minister. The doctoi' 
Avas reluctant to su|iercede an ollieial 
so many' y'cars associated Avith him in 
his duties; but at length resolved to 
coiiA'ey' a hint Avhieh iiiight indm 
him to resign. During a Aveek-day' 
conv'er.sation Avith him, the doctor jiro 
cecdoil — "By the Avay, some o’ tin 
folks AA'crc remarking that you Avere 
scarcely so able for the singing iioav, 

and were suggesting” Nut]icrmit 

ting the minister to conclude the sen- 
tence, John broke in — “Ay, ay, sir 
jtliat s just wbat some o’ them Inn 
been sayin’ to me aboot ycrsel” “It 
that be so,” said the minister, “they 
must ]iut up Avith ns both a little long- 

The Rev. Sir Henry Monerielf, Bart.. 
Avas fill' some years minister ot th 
jiarish of Blackford, jirior to bis trans- 
lation to St. Cutlibert’s, Fdinburgli. 
During his ineumbeney' at Blackford 
he bail, one Sabbath, opened divine 
service by giving out a jiortion of the 
71st I’salm, al the seventh verse. In

Tho beadle or ehureh-olticer is tin 
attendant of the ministerand the kirk- 
session. His principal ]iublie duly is 
to carry the ehureh liible and conduct 
the minister to tlie puljiit. 'I'hereisthi 
story of a headin avIio.oii a|qioinlment 
desired the minister sjieeially to re- 
member him “by' say'jn’ a word that 
he micht bo enabled to go out and

the city' churches of tllasgow being 
asked by' an elder from the countrv 
Avhelher he could recommend a person 
to act as u churidi-ollicer, re]died he 
could not. “Hail you Avanted a minis-

In rural parishcs,the ollices ofbead- 
lo and sexton are conjoined; but it is 
otherAviso in toAvns and extensive ]ia- 
rochial districts. The se.xton is there- 
fore to be regarded as an independent 
functionary'. A little fiimiliarity with 
his A'oeation is apt to render him in- 
'lill’erent to the sad nature of his du- 
ties. Some A'ears ago, a clergyman. 
Avalking in tho little cliiirehyard at 
AlloAvay', remarked to the gravedig- 
ger, Avho Avas in the act of making a 
grave: “Yours is an uii|deasant call- 

ing, anil no doubt your heart is ollen 
sore Avhen you are engaged in it.” 
'fhe se.xton looked up ami promjitly 
replied. "Ay', ay', sir, its unco sair 
AA'ark!” — lady' asked the lute sexton 
at Denny, Avhether he did not fee) 
deeply' theiluties Avhieh hi.'i oeciijiation 


led him tt‘ discharge. “V era inuch at 
the first, inem,” Avar the ansAver; “for 
thelirst i’orniclitl coudna eat my meat 
Avithouta knife and fork.’’ 

The gravedigger at Sorn, in .\yr- 
shire, AVas notorious for his sordid in- 
clinations; he Avas constantly in tho 
habit of complaining of his circum- 
stances. Being asked by' an acqmiint- 
ance how the world AVas using him? 
he ri'iilied, “Piiirly — very' jiuirly: the 
yard has done naething ava the hale 
simmer. An’ ye like to believe me, 1 
haena buried a leevin’ soul these sax 

AA'eeks.” There is the Avell-knoAvn 

story' ofihe sexton of ( 'ariiAval h, Avho 
thus equivocally' e.xpressed himself on 
bearing- the death of a jiarishioncr: 
“11 cell AvhoAV, I Avail rather it had been 
ither tAva!” 

Robin Herrick, gravedig'ger of the 
Dissenting (diurch at Falkirk, exer- 
cised his vocation for the jieriod ol 
half a century. He Avas cin|)loycd in 
jircparing the graA'eofa deceased jier- 
son whom he held in peculiar esteem. 
To a gent b'maigAvho haiqieiied to jiass 
it the time,, he summed up a eulogy 
on the departed by s:iying. “He Avas 
sic a fine chiel. I’m howkin’ his gr:,v,‘ 
Avi a iii'AV Sj'ade.” Herrick was not 
ilAvays disposed to indulge in com- 
mendation ofthe deceased. A gentle- 
man Avalking in the chiircbyard ob- 
served that the sAvard on a particular 
rave Avas unu-iially fresh and green. 
.\ h,” re|died Robin, “it’s a bonnie 
turf, but it’s a pity to see it putteii 
loAA n u]ion sic a skemp.” 

Ridicrl Fairgrieve, beadle and grave- 
digger nl .\ncrnm, in Ro.xburghshire, 
had retui-ned 1’i-om .ledburgh lair at 
an early hour ofthe afternoon, Avhen 
ho met with the minister. “)'ou’ve got 
early back, Robert, ” said thi' clei-gy- 
nian. “Ah! sir, avc lliat arc the ollice- 
bearers shoubl be i-nsam|des to the

was aged and infirm, he Avas found bv 
a friend in an anxious state  d mini 
What’s the matter, Ridiert,” Avasthe 
friend’s inquiry'. “Ah! 1 Avasjustmind

It is that of a little boy Avho obeys his

they loA'e him. and because (iod has

Secret of the Radical Orator’s Success. 

'The jirincipal, ])erhaps the sol 
cause of the success of the radical 
orator id’ the jircsent day Avith hi 
luilience is his I'orce. He is a man ol 
one lone idea, and if this hajqiens to 
be a great and fundamental one, as it 
sometimes does, it is a|q reheiided 
111)011 one of its sides only. As a con- 
sequence, he is an intense man, a 
forcible man. His utterances pene- 
trate. It is true I hat there are among 
this class some of less earnest spirit, 
and less energetic temiicr; amaleiii 
reformers, Avho Avish 1.) make an iin 
pressioii upon the public mind I'roin 
motives of mere vanity'. Such men 
are exceedingly feeble, and soon 
desist Irom their undertaking. For 
while the common mind is ever ready, 
too ready, to listen to a really' earne 
and forcible man, CA-eii though his 
force proceeds from a wrong source 
and sets in an altogel her Avrong direc 
tion, it yet loathes a lukeAvarm earn
