. Beings confirmed in holiriesS, may be
governed by incentives to virtue and happi
ness. The fallen, whose state is fixed' be
yond recovery, are to be ruled by power,
upon the principles of vindictive justice and
wrath. But probatimers, whether fallen or
unfailen, must, in the government of a just
God, be moved, guided, and controlled both
by laws of love and terror. This is evinced
by the fact that a penalty was attached to
the law of works, announced to primeval
man; by the curse and blessing of Noah,
pronounced upon his sons; and by the bow
in the cloud, indicative of mercy, while
jndgments also follow to the race.
This; if not the only, is doubtless the
best way for a holy God to govern a rebel
lious race. He lift the human race for six
.teen centuries, in some measure, without the
checks to vice, which were afterwards intro
duced. The sequel was such a state of
things as demanded a destruction of the
world by a deluge. This remedy is DOt to
be 'applied again; but others fitted to ac
complish the purposes of the Moral Geyer
nor of the world, are now used with double
:success, as they:follow one fell destruction of
almost the whole race of Adam for crime.
Meet. It would, seem, as we have inti
mated, (Bible Narratives, No. 9,) that a
: prospective arrangement was made prior to
'the flood, not only to check the wicked
course of fallen man by the mild opposing
'influence of the Church and the "sons of
God," but to divide their unholy plans by
rivalries and jealousies of r•aces. Whether
`we have suggested the true origin of these
or not, the fact itself exists. No one can
deny that distinctions from color and other
• peculiarities have so created antipathies and.
attachments, as greatly, to thwart the plans
:of conquerors in, their aims at universal
empire. Even when success for a time has
crowned. the arrangements of the asnbitious,
they have failed in the end, becthise the
races they have united by force, were so
distinct, that they could be held together
only by constant pressure. This can seldom
be applied for any great length of time..
Thus the empires of Alexander, and others
like him, hardly outlived, those that formed
them. This -diversity ,of races.:-does-not
affect Christ's kingdom as it does the, king
dews of me a ;. Christ's kingdom being allowed
to - keep the place its • great Author assigned.
it: !‘ It is not of this world." Therefore,
it should not assume, the plane of civil gov
ernment, nor be entangled, in its large opera
tion for the good of the whole brotherhood
of DUD, by national lines and laws. It is
from heaven and of God, and, therefore,
suited the 'race alike. The State, the
party, or the ruler who 'would suppress its
moral and •religious , code of laws, 'or cramp
its varied and ramified operations, fights nOt
only against its few loyal subjects, but
against its: sovereign King. Wherever,•
therefore, the civil laws, or the social rela
tions of a people are such that the Bible is
not allowed b be freely circulated, end read
by every class, there is a wrong, which, if
not repented of and remedied, will bring its
penalty upon the perpetrate - re.
Again: the developments of human de
pravity are checked by Jehovah, in making
life short and uncertain. Man's average
age after the 'flood up to Eber, was four
hundred and forty-five years. It at once
sunk to those horn after the rebellion of the
race at the tower of Babel, to an average of
two hundred and twenty-six years. Grad
ually the period of roan's life was shortened
till, in the age of Moses, seventy years was
deemed its ordinary length,---Ps. xc : 10.
Life, too, seems to . Wive become more un
certain. ,The elder Nahor , died more than
half' a century before hietether, and at an
age less than that to which his descendants
'attained for three generations; and Heron is
specifically noted as dying prematurely.—
Gen. xi : 28.
By this arrangement, bold and daring men
like Nimrod, would riot only be discouraged,
but they wordirbe hindered froth carrying
out their wicked plans. , Yet, what would`
check the wicked, laboring for worldly and
selfish ends, need not affect the plans of
, God, sweeping over all generations; nor
'need it cool 'the zeal of his people, though
each leaves his post of labor to a successor,
when he has stood and toiled 'only a score or
two of years .
• Another arrangement of Providence, to
keep in cheek a rebellious race, is the div
ersity of language. The first confusion of
tongue's was the specific application of a re
medy fitted to break up an extensive com
bination of men for an ungodly purpose.
The ambition of the proud monarch for
widened empire, hae, by this, in every age,
been kept in check. Though he might, by
'mighty armies, conquer and destroy almost
as easily those of different speech, as if to
his people they were not of 'barbarian
tennis.; „yet, neither bylaws,. magistrates,
• nor soldiers, could he so readily govern thein.
'Thus, while the ,confusion of tongues, on the
one hand, is to be viewed as a punishment of
crime; yet, we cannot tell, but - upon the
other, band, it is to be considered beneficial;
as greater disasters might have come upon
'the race, it this form of penalty:upon rebel
lious spirits had not, been inflicted:

their own tongue yet the people would have
the law of Gad; they would be saved from
the corruptions of tradition ; and a work
might commence, as with the rebels of
China, which in time would as effectually
overturn false religion, as if some Moses and
Aaron, with the rod of God in their hands,
would attack it. We are not sure that the
faith of the Church is sufficiently strong, in
regard to what God may work by his Bible
alone, which may be given to the nations
sooner and much more easily than the living
We might mention several other ways by
which'God governs our fallen race.; such - as
the, pleasure of the exercise of benevolent,
and the pain of malevolent passions; the
rewards and punishments. which generally
follow virtuous and vicious actions ;'end the
spedial judgments Which`
upon bolder sinners, 'aa the thunder-bolts
fall upon the tallest trees and highest moun
tain peaks. It, however, falls in with our
object to notice only' the arrangement by
Which oppression and slavery, themselves a
punishment, became under God their own
Filial affection is the first and the leading
manifestation of the love to man, which ful
fills the second table' of the moral law. It
was violated by Ham.—Gen. ix: 22., When
this affection is banished from a community,
or a Statei a condition of things takes place,
as a result or a penalty; which subjects the
disobedient to those who are monarch
fathers by power, and not by parental love.
Here we have the origin of despotism,
feudalism, and.slavery, in all theirlormsa ,
But, whilst God punishes lawlessness and
insubordination in the inasses, =byi allairing
powerful and proud oppressors to rule them,
he also keeps the selfishness' of the - cruel
master in 'check, and sometimes terribly
punishes him by the slaves he has injured.
This has often been illustrated in the his
toryi of the race.; and t may be confirmed
by other as striking exhibitions, if the
haughty, tyrant will not learn from the tes
timony of the past, or from the declared
will of a moral Governor. The almost
unlimited power assumed by Louis XIV.,
and carried out by himself and successors,
in war, luxury, and consequent oppression,
had nearly exhausted the resources and
patience of the French people, when a
destructive hail-storm drove them to a mad
ness, which resulted in the revolution of
1790. But as the king bad oppressed the
people through the Roman Hierarchy and the
feudai dukes, these, after regal power was
abolished, and the king beheaded in 1793,
were as obnoxious to the iMpulace as the
king himself had been. Hence,• followed
the " Reign of Terror," during which many
scores of thousands of the wealthy and op.
j)ressive leaders in ChUrel and State were
executed under the name of Justice, and
of the laws of Republicanism. This 'was . a
terrible remedy; but by it the people became
the owners of the soil which had been held
by the Church, the dukes and the crown;
and now in France there are about 5,000,000
freehold estates, "averaging about twenty
acres each. England, with a feudalism,
similar in many respects, has been 'saved
from revolution by extensive commerce, by
large colonial settlements, by a more liberal
and popular government, and by a Protestant
religion. But still the danger is before her,
and to avertjt will require wise legislation
by gradual reaudidq of the power of the
barons, and by proper cheeks to the laws of
entailment, and a large, and yet judicious
exercise '-of Christian liberality by the
wealthy to the poor.
The principle to which we have adverted,
might be aptly illustrated by occurrenees in
St. Domingo, in Mexico, and in other places
in times ancient and modern. '
Such facts in the history of oppressioit
are suggestive. Senators should theteby be
taught - ,wisdom, and rulers should learn
iightemidness. Gbd's principle of moral
government will remain the same from age
to age Proud man must ben 'like the
willow before the storm, or like the dead
ened oaks of the &la, he must be broken
The world willcertainly be taught; though
it may be a dull learner; that the regulations,
of the Biblo, in regard to large landed es
tates and their entailthent; are wise ;`and
that the laWs, by which Israel was compara
tively free from involuntary servitude, show
greet 'wisdom in the 'Law (liver, and such
as wwlit be profitably imitated in every age.

A Tiger Story.
Lucy and Faany were two little girls
who lived with their father and mother in
London. When Lucy was six. and Fanny
five years old, their Uncle George came home
from India. This was a great joy to their;
be' was so kind, and had so much to tell them
- about far-a Way places, • and strange' people;
and animals, and things such as they had
never, seen. They never wearied of hear
ing his stories, and he did not seem to weary
either of telling them. .
One day after dinner, they both climbed
on his knees, and Lucy said,
" 0, Uncle,' do tell IA a,tiger story ?
" Very well," said he; "I will tell you ,a
story, about, a tiger and:. a- baby; which, hap
pened' to itom& friends of 'my own.' This
gentleman and lady had one sweet little baby,
and they hid to - takd'a - longlourireyritli: it'
though a wild part of India. There were
no houses there; and they had to sleep in a
'tent.' That is a kind Of house made of cloth
by driving:high sticks firmly into the ,ground,
and then drawing' curtains all over them. , It
is very comfortable and cool in a warm country
where there 'is no rain but then there are
DO doors or windows; o shutas we dp,at night,
to make all safe. One :night they haLto
sleep in a very wild place, near a thick
wood. The lady said,-
4 0, I feel so afraid to night; I cannot
tell you how frightened I am. I know there
are many tigers 'and , wild anhnals in the
wood ; 'and what if they should cove out
upon us ? '
" Her husband replied,"
My dear, we will make the servants light
a,fire, and keep watch, and you need have
no fear ; , and`we.miutputpur trust in God.'
" So the lady kissed her baby and put it
into its cradle• and then she and' her hus
band knelt down. together, and prayed to
God to keep them from every danger and
they repeated that pretty verse,
' 4 ' I will' both lay me down in peace,- and
sleep ; for thou, Lorkonry rankest me dviell
"In the middle of the night the lady
started up with a loud cry,
• 0, my babY ! my baby ! I dreame'd „just
now that a great tiger had creptbelow the
curtains and ran away with my child I'
she locked into,,,,,thp
the bilipwas not there ! 0, you may think
how,dreadfuLwas their distreas. They ran
out bff . p4olextS4 and #tere- in 'the moonlight
they saw a great animal moving toward; the
wood, with something white in ,his mouth.
THE PRESBYTERIAN BANNER AND ADVOCATE.
They wakened all the servants, and got loaded
guns, and all went after it into the wood.
They went as fast, and yet quietly as they
could, and very soon they came to a place
where they saw through the trees that the
tiger had laid down and was playing with
the baby, just as pussy does with a mouse
before she kills it. The baby was not cry
ing, and did not seem a bit hurt. The poor
father and mother could only pray. to the
Lord for help, and when one of the men
took up his gun,/the lady cried,
' 0, you will kill my child !'
" But the man raised the gun and fired at
once, and iiod made him do it well. The
tiger gave a loud howl; and jumped up, and
then fell down again, shot quite dead. Then
they all rushed forward, and there was the
dear baby quite safe:and smiling
,us if it were
not at all afraid."
" And did the baby really live ? "
" Yes, the poor lady was. very ill. after

it often since then. You may be sure that
often, when they looked at theiftchild after=

awake Swat at the 'right minute, and 'made the
hold hold the baby by the clothes so as not to

and not the child. But now good-night, my
dear little girls; and 'before you go to bed,

did'that night in the tent." •

A Wife's Influence, or Faith and Patience
A TRUE NARRATIVE.
About forty years ago, there lived in the
State of , a family by, the name of
P . At this time neither father nor
mother were pious. The family altar was
not erected; the Bible never read; God
,worshipped; all religious duties
were neglected. Yet, the Father of mer
cies had marked the parents of, this house
hold as the subjects of his distinguishing
grace. 800 n after the birth.of her third
child, the mother became hopefully pious
through ;the instrumentality of the Gospel,•
preached by a faithful ambassador of Heaven,
in connexion with the Presbyterian Church.
In the discharge of her religious duties,
she encountered powerful opposition from
her, as yet, godless companion. He
fliocked at her,expostulations; laughed at
her when engaged in her religious• devo
tions; scoffed , at, the promises, precepts, and
teachings of the Bible, and despised the
Church of Jesus Christ, and all its ordi
nances I In a word, he was openly profane;
an avowed enemy to all religion; living with
out God and without hope in the`world •
violently opposed to his wife's attending
church; counting all professors hypocrit.s;
ministers the vilest impostor*
ness a,groundless delusion. e went
so far in his opposition to the church, as to
utterly refuse to provide any accommodation
for 'his, notOpaoioa to attend ; regularly the
ministrations of God's Word.
All this, Mrs. P bore with Chris
tian patience,, and encountered With reli
gious fortitude. Her pastor had two fields
of labor—one distant about three, and the
other one mile from her residence. When
religious service was in the latter, Mrs. P•
went the distance alone omfoot; when
the former, she rode on horseback, contrary
to 'the express,injunctions of her husband.
At such times she would rig up her , horse
herself; bringing him from - the field or the
stable amid 'a volley of verbal 1. buse from
him who.. had. , sworn,•,beform the Itymenial
altar, to • love and protect herd through life I
Such Were ,the domeitic trials of ,Mrs.
P—±-7,;fOr the' first few years after her'
union with Christ and his' Church. At
times-thesmount. ofrtribulatiorcrose.so high
across the pathway of ,her duty, that her
soul was ready t to despond; then would she
seize, with a &ultra* the Strong staff of
consolation, found in God's Word, for God's
' people, " thou faithful .unto death and I
will give thee a' crown of life;" " My grace
is sufficient for thee ;" "To him that over-,
°meth, I will give the morning star;" "Who
soever lovetti husband Morelhan nie, is not
,worthy of me;"" " Whosoever will be my
'disciple, let him take up his cross and follow
Me daily; thromlh evil as well as through
good report." ,
She felt; she knew that these promises
are not so much made to success, as to exer
tions. Hence, she labored in meekness to
win her husband to Jesus. His frowns she
met with smiles; his cruelty with kindness.
By words of gentleness she often disarmed
his wrath When words .of bitterness would
have but aroused his anger. •Again and
again did she lay her troubles before him in
whose hands are all :hearts, praying that as
he had once laid the mantle of his peace
upon the stormy sea so he would calm into
sweet repose, by the breath of his Spirit, the
angry soul. of him wbo held in his hand the
cup of her domestic enjoyment.
Her prayers were heard, but not imme
diately;..for Mr . P— seemed to become
worse, and worse in his opposition to Christ,
affirming that if she did not desist from at
tending church, he would no longer take
care of the children 'daring her absence on
the SabliSth but amuse himself on that
day, by shooting game in the forest., And
this threat le more: than once carried into ,
eiecutitin. Even 'this . did not divert' 'Mrs.
P • from tye iiath'of duty : l lneeling
mit them to =the care of that God that
watches over the young ravens that• cry unto
him; after this, taking the youngest child
in •her arms, and: mounting her horse, she
would ride to the 'sanctuary, to 'have her sand
fed -with heavenly food, from which she
would derive enough of spiritual strength to
'bear up under all her trials, until

Mr. P— did come on the aforesaid morn

On herlavturn froin,church in the (Ten
ing, she found , her wretched husband about
a mile from home, lying on the side of the
road, dead drunk I As she passed him, she
prayed that the Lord would not lay this sin
to his charge. When she arrived at home,
she told her little son (now about twelve
years old,) the condition of his father.
Then did the mother and son mingle their
tears together over a fallen father, and un
grateful husband. But true to the instinct
of genuine love, they harnessed the horse
that had that day been saddled, hitched
him to a small sled, and drove off to bring
the drunkard to his Nome._ They rolled him
on the' sled, and brought him to his house,
and put him in bed, where he lay uncon
scious until itext morning, when the wife
met him with a smile,.and asked him if he
were better. ! The Wretched man was over
come by si4h iinineiited kindness. He
ceased opposing his wife in her devotions.

chapter or two in the Bible, and often bring

out -to , a n *ghboring schoolhouse to' hear
Rev. Mr. R-- T -- preach. From this time a
change for the better seemed and more
manifest. He left off, speaking evil of pro
fessors of religion, and of religion itself.

and attending chureh with his wife on the

JIIST IS SUE D—JA.COBIII3 9 IS NOTES ON
THE GOSPEL BY JOHN.—This le the third volume
of a series on' the Evangelista The following are a part of
the manylestintonies borne in favor of the former portions
of the work:
"These volumes display in a very eminent degree
the excellences which should appear in a condensed
commentary on any portion of the Word of God. They
embrace the marrow of all the beitt:'writers and Com
mentators on the Gospels. The labor which they must
have cost is immense, and could only have been 'devoted by
one whose heart was in the work. The Harmony of the
Gospels, which is interwoven in the Notes, and the wonder
ful condensation cf facts and expositions, render both vol
umes extremely yal uable."—Prerb. Bonne r.
" For valuable cOnchneation, and accuracy and safety of
Interpretation, we think it superior to Barnes, and would
advise its use in our Bible Clasees."—Chrislicia bitelligencer.
"Admirably adapted to the Sabbath School, Elide Class,
and Bamily,with this advantage of preoediug works, that it
has appropriated the results of Moistest inquiries on vari
ous subjects connected with Biblical Literature"— Puritan
"The author, by his learning, taste. and skill, is eminent
ly qualified for the responsible work
,of an annotator on
the Her) , Scriptures. In hie Notes, he combines the mar
row and fatness of many commentators with his own ideas,
and associates his comments with a Harmony ot the Gospels,
in a very impressive manner."—Zion'illerakt.
"The Notes ate evidently prepared with great care, and
fully illustrate the textto the comprehension, we bad almost
said, of the lewt attentive reader. We,regard these volumes
as an important auxiliary to the study
of the Gospels, and
a valuable addition to our Biblical Literature designed for
the masses"—.A/bany Argue.
From James Hamilton, D. D., London.—" I am especially
delighted to land that you persevere with yonrCommentary
on the New Testament ; and' from' its admirable execution,
I am not surprised, .althongh very happy to learn, tbat the
former volinnes have gone through so many editions."
Prom R. L. Rice, D. D., St. Louis, Mo.—ln my opinion,
yon are doing for the Church and the cause of truth, a re , y
valuable service, in'the preparatien and publicatiob of your
Commentaries on the „New Testament. They fill a place
which it is most important to have filled. They are read by
the members of Bible Classes, and "by teachers, and by pu
pils in Sabbath Schools, because in them they find, in a few
worde,*the exposition and information they are seeking;
and for the same reaeon they will find a general cireula

CURED, WI. hout Pain or Surgical Operation.
The readers of the Banner and Advccate will recollect I
published a notice last Winter, headed "The Last Call to
Stuttering and Stammering gers°na,7 in.vehich .I announced
Was thennlY chance they would ewer have 'of getting cured,
and allfwhollesieed 'the cure 'ehonld' either • wind' for It by
mail or call
before-the 10th of March, as on that
day I bad made arrangenients to resign, my,profession, and
iiitiikeTrom * the pritetice. Sineellifiloth, I haie personally
consulted forty. and - sent the 'mire •by mill sixty-indi
viduals. In every instance perfect satisfaction has been
rendered, In Justice to all Who are so unfortunate as to
stutter or stammer yet. I have thought proper to give
another opportnnity of being cured, and therefore would
respectfully request, thorn to send me $2O, (which is less
'than my usual fee,) and Twill immediately send them my
cure. By so doing they save the expense of traveling. I
am a responsible man, and if my owe is not effectual I will
agree to refund- the money. Recollect. this cure never fails.
Address Dr. WYCKOFF, Box 746, Pittsburgh Post OBICe:
• There has beena . floating population of impooters_travel.
log the country, profeising to cure impedimenta of speech'
by my system, and many have had the audacity to advertise .
in my name. and give the names of men for reference whom
they never knew or saw.• When persons who stammer
called, those men would represent me,
• and in several in
stances produce a certificate purporting to be mine, vesting
in them full power and authority to practice as my Agents.
I have frequently warned the Public of these men, as they .
are not in full possession of my system, and cannot core..
Through untiring perseverance. I arrested two 'of them, ,
and others will sooner or later share the same fate. This.
cure for Stuttering or Stammering is one of my own
discovery, for which I. have a copy right, secured by law,
and have successfully practised the same for the term of
nine years. • •
My references are of .the blithest order, such as. the Medi
cal Faculty of New York. Philadelphia, and the University
of Virginia, all the Press of Pittsburgh,' Washington,
Greensburg. and Uniontown, Pa., besides ,fifty thousand
persons in different parts of the country.
This cure for Stuttering an &Stammering la performed In
less than one hour. There is no pain or surgical operation
The beauty of all this Is, it will cure children of Ave, and
adults at the age of one hundred years. A person who is
cured by it, can never again stutter, even If they try. I of
fer to forfeit $lO,OOO if anY person can ever afterwards Sint
ter, by application of the cure. •
It was formerly customary to announce, that no pay
would be required unless a perfect Cure was performed.
That was done to show the people there would be no risk in
giving me a trial. But'now,inaemuch 'as the leading citi
zens of ..pittaburgh,hnow my cure never ails, it would be
superfluous to make another such announcement.
