Whilst yet his days were few;
The deep, glad spirit of the boy
To love and reverence grew.
Whether, each nightly star to count,
The ancient hills he trod,
Or sought the flowers by stream and fount—
Alike he walked with God.
The graver noon .of manhood came,
The fall of cares and fears;
One voice was in h,is heart—the same
Is heard through childhood's years.
Amidst fair tents and flocks and swains,
O'er his green pasture sod,
A shepherd,king on En. Stern shins,
The patriarch walked with God.
And calmly, brightly, `that pure life
. Melted from earth away;
No cloud it knew, no parting strife,
No sorrowful decay;
He bowed him not, like all beside,
Unto the spoiler's rod,
But joined at once the gloried,
Whereangels walk with God.
So lot us walk !--the night must come
To us, that comes to all;
We through the darknesS,must go home,
Hearing the trumpet's call.
Closed is the path, for evermore,.
Which, without death he trod;,
.Not so that way, wherein of yore
His footsteps walked with God.

NARRATIVE OF THE STATE OF RELIGION.
Btterriusw :.The state of religion in our
Synod during the past year presents two aspects:
the one cheering, the other depressing. Those
of, you who, lam - exiting your owu spiritual priva
tioms,.desire to be revived by accounts of bounti
ful blessings bestowed upon others, will find
something cheering in the Narrative ; whilst those
of you who look with anxiety to see all the
churches abounding with the blessings which. you
have enjoyed, will find in the Narrative much
cause for sadness.
Some of our churches have been, we trust, re
freshed in an especial by the revivingand
regenerating inNuences of the Holy Spirit. The
means of grace have been sought, and diligently
Used during .the week ' 114, well as on the Sabbath ;
the spirit of prayer leas abounded, and pleasing
fruits have been produced: The Iwo churches of
Springfield, with the churches of Sangamon Pres
bytery generally, and several churches •of the
Presbyteriesnf, Peoria and Kaskaskia, 'have par
taken of these blessings. It is stated, that four
hundred persons have been received into the
various evangelical churches of Springfield, as
the fruits of this gracious visitation of the Spirit.
There is gratifying evidence that many of the
churches in which no signal awakening has cc-.
ourred, have not been altogether forsaken. The
regular and serious attendarice"of their members
on the worship and ordinances of the Chureh,
test the presence of the Spirit, conveying to them
the Divine blessing; and we doubt not that these
churches have been steadily grow-ins:4u grace,

Oar heavenly Father has not, we believe, for
saken any of our churches, ashe did the Church
of Israel for a considerable period before the
manifestation of his Sou in the flesh; nor as he
did the Christian Church about five centuries ago.
He' has not blinded our eyes
. nor hardened our
hearts, that we should not see with our. eyes, nor
understand with our hearts, nor receive the con
verting and healing influences of his Spirit. In
this we rejoice; but with fear and trembling ; for
it is of grace, not, of merit, that we differ from
But, while we give thanks -for the general and
special blessings received during tile past year,
the question arises, whether the state of religion
in oar churches,has been such as to leave us no
ground for humiliation, and to preclude all de
sire and expectation of greater blessings. The
Christian heart can be, in this world, only as an
earthen veseel, and cannot be expected to retain
all the treasures of grace which God, in his good
ness, is willing to bestow ; yet there is lamenta
ble evidence that, the hearts of our people are not
filled; even to the extent of their low capacity,
with the grace of God. What is that capacity?
What may, we expect? What must we possess
before we can regard the 'state of our religion
with joy, nnmingled with sorrow-? We may ex
pect the ;Lord to be present and indwelling with
all our people; communing, with their, hearts,
and guiding them into ail truth. We may ex
peel, on the part of all our people, a high valua
tion of all the means of grace. We may expect
the prayer-meeting to he longed for as a delight
ful resort ; the gates of the Lord's house to be a
more desirable residence than the tents of wicked
ness ; the acquirements of grace to be more
valued than acquisitions of filthy lucre. We may
expect our people to offer themselves and their
children to the Lord, as their reasonable service.
Ms we may expect of the church on earth. Till
this expe - etatiOn be fulfilled, we must mingle tears
'with.ent rejOicing. Therefore, although we h [tire,
in reviewing the state of religion in our Synod
during the past year, much occasion tbr joy, there

seem to; erforin their Christian Winos sluggishly,
es eztir the collstraiLt of the law, and not with
the spirit and alacrity of the sous of God.
There is amongst thew but little longieg or faint
ing for the courts or: the Lord; and it is to be
feared that the prayer-meetings are with diffi
culty maintained. No earnest desire for the
spiced of the Gospel is manifested, nor any in
clination to cultivate a missionary spirit in the
Sabbath Schools Amidst their temporal pros
perity, their pastors are oppressed with the want
of adequate support; and the Boards of the
Church are forgotten. Their children, though
baptized, are not trained up for the Lord. There
is more carefulness to lead their children into the
fields of worldly business, than into the vineyard
of the Lord. Therefore, amidst our rejoicing in
the tokens of the favor and forbearance of God,
we should earnestly pray for a general revival of
religion. " The Lord's hand is not shortened
that it cannot save, neither his ear heavy that
it cannot hear."

The Mother's Work.
A happy, Christian home had for a brief
period been honored by the presence 'of a
venerable minister of Jesus Christ. • During
his sojourn, the wife and mother of the
household had more than once introduced'
the subject of family government, in order
to'bbtairr the advice of one who was •:went
qualified to instruct, the ''
And .now 'the larewell-words :were being'
Spoken. ..Taking the hand of Mrs. A., Dr.
S. said, "The nest time I visit- you, my
dear madam, will probably ,be some, years
hence ; and when I come again I shall see
(glancing toward the . little ones, as he
spoke,) what your work :has been."
The expression was a very forcible and
impressive one, and for a little time the
young mother's .eyes _ were' dimmed with
tears. But the subsequent reflections .were
useful to her, and perchance a brief sketch
of them may *aid some., others in like cir
- Is it true that the mother is to mould her
child's Character into that form which it
shall retain through life, and with which
al' probability, enter eternity'?
Ali; then, if it - be So; her work is one of im
niense consequence; and must in - no` casche
neglected or set aside to give place to con
cerns of less importance. Even our neces
sary care for our children's physical comfort
must not interfere with the more responsi
ble duty of training the immortal mind.
There can be no question but that we
must first seek to secure implicit and un
questioning obedience. "My mother pays
so," should be enough for a child of .any
age; who is still under the parent's direction.
The :teaching -of God's Word, as well as
that of human' reason, convince us that the
child should early learn to ,subject its will
to that of its parent. And a most solemn
thought in connexion with this point is,
that the child who has learned to submit to
the authority of a human parent, will find'
it less difficult to yield obedience to the
commands of his heavenly Father. The
law of God should be our book of reference
whenever we instruct our children - in regard
to duty. Thus they will leaL to regard the
authority of the Bible as indisputable, and
will insensibly feel for it the same-rever
ence that is manifested by so faithful a,
mother. We must educate the tender con
science by a careful religious training, and
teach.our,children to heed even the faint
whispers of its warning voice. They should
also be early instructed in the importance of
self control.- The little 'one who can. sup
press a cry of pain when it is hurt, and who
has learned .with the soft answer to turn
away the anger of a playmate, -will' not, be
likely in riper years to be a selfish com
panion, or a law-breaking citizen..
We may not be able to change the natural
disposition, but we can do much :toward
modifying it. The impetuous child may he
taught to restrain his impatience ; .the pas
sionate one to govern his temper; the
selfish, to seek the happiness of those
around him ; and the indolent and4nefficient
one may learn habits of diligence. If we
early teach our children to be industrious,
we shall thus furnish them with a valuable
shield against temptation. Itis for-" idle
hands" that Satan is so officious in finding
employment. Let the business of the day
be the first object of attention, and its re
creations will be the more highly enjoyed.
We must gainthe confidence of the little
ones, in order that our influence over. them
may be continued as long as they need our
guidance. In their mother, both sons and
daughters - should- feel that they have their
most devoted and sympathizing friend.
As Christian parents, we are under sa
cred obligations to look beyond this fleeting
world, and so instruct the young minds that
are committed to our trainingthat they may
be 'fitted for usefulness in, their present state
of existence, and for a glorious immortality
beyond the grave. We ought not .to be
willing that either ourselves or our children
should spend a whole life in the midst of
innumerable opportunities for doing good,
and yet leave the world none the better for
our having lived in it.
But, while -we are considering what duties
this-important relation involves, we may not
be insensible to the fact that the maternal
werkiS a very. arduous one. And because
et - its „constantly eirring'we
may--he in danger of becoming dishearteried;:
and perhaps we shall be almost -ready, to

whence cometh our help, and that an in

lack wisdom, let him ask of Airod, who
givetb to all men liberally, and upbraideth
,and it shall be' given him." And
every pious mother has (both from the
promises of Scripture and the happy ex
perience of others,) abundant reasons to be
lieve that if to her faithful exertions is added
the prayer of faith, the influences of God's
Spirit will not be wanting to crown her labors
with abundant success. ALETELEA.

THE New York Herald says: The Chinese
sugar-cane seed, distributed by the Patent
office last Spring, promises to be a complete
success at the North. -A package of seed
was planted in Bucks county, Pa., latitude
404 degrees North, and has arrived at ma
turity. The Maximum height of the stock
was ten feet, and the product in grain much
greater than • any -cereal under Xcultivation.
The stalk is perfectly green after the seed
has reached maturity,, and the saccharine
principle is then fully, developed.' The,
juice, which is most abundant, is very sac
charine, quite as much so as the varnity_nf,
cane cultivated at the South. Whether the,
juice contains the same amount of ebrystat
izable sugar, remains to be tested. Should'
it be found- equal to ordinary cane in that
respect, a new era in the agriculture of the
North will be inaugurated, and au immense
breadth of land be devoted to culture, as soon
as, the necessary seed can be obtained, which
will require another year at lea,st. The seed
having been distributed late in the Spring,
which was cold and backward, there is' gOO%
reason to believe that much planted did not
reach maturity. Should the plant fail, so'
far as the manufacture of sugar is con
cerned, yet its value as a forage crop cannot
be over estimated at the North. Cattle, hogs
and horses eat the entire stock with avidity,
and no doubt would fatten rapidly on it.
The seed, which is small; has a thin black
hull which can be taken off, leaving a fine
white flour es the residue. We have no
means at present of estimating the value of
this flour as an article of food ; but no doubt
its merits will 'be fully investigated. The
culture required. for the plant is similar to
that adopted for indian corn when planted in
rows, and the seed should be put into the
ground about the same time. As it is a quick
and 'strong growing plant, it should. be well
manured. - •

What is the Use of snow !
The snow was proverbially called the
"poor farmer's manure," before scientific
analysis bad shown that it contained a
larger per centage of ammonia than rain.
The snow serves as a protecting mantle to
the tender herbage and the routs of all
plants against the fierce blasts and cold of
Winter. An examination of snow in Si
beria showed that when the temperature of
the air was seventy-two degrees below zero,
the temperature of the snow, a little below
the surface, was twenty-nine degrees above
zero—over one hundred degrees difference.
The snow keeps the earth just below the
surface in a condition to take oh chemical
changes, which would not happen if the
ground was bare and frozen to a great depth.
The snow prevents exhalation's from the
earth, and is a powerful absorbent, retaining
and returning to the earth, gases arising
from vegatable and animal decomposition.
The: snow, though it falls , heavily at the door
of the poor, and brings death and starvation
to the fowls of the air and beasts of the
field, is yet of incalCulable benefit in a
climate like ours, and especialiy at this time,
when the deep springs of the earth', were
failing, and the mill-streams were refusing
their motive powers to the craving appetites
of man. If, during the last month, the
clouds 'had dropped rain.instead of a l low, we
might have 'paved and bored the earth in
Vain for water; but, With'aToot of snow upon
the earth, and many feet upon the mountains,
the hum of the mill-stones and the harsh'
notes of the saw will soon and lorig testify to
its beneficence. Bridges, earth-works, and
the fruits of engineering skill and toil may
be swept away, but man will still rejoice in
the general good, and adore the benevo
lence, of, Him who orders all, things aright..
The snow is a great purifier of the atmos
phere. The absorbent powers of the capil
lary action of snow is like that of a sponge
or charcoal. Immediately after snow has
fhllen, melt, it in a clean vessel and taste it,
and you will find, immediately, evidences of
its impurity. Try some a day or two old,
and it becomes nauseous, especially in cities.
Snow water makes the mouth harsh and dry.
It has the same effect upon the Skin, and
upon the hands and feet produces the pain
ful malady of chilblains. The 'following
easy experiment beautifully illustrates the
absorbent' property of snow. Take a lump
of snow (a piece of snow crust answers well,)
of three or four inches in length, and hold
it in the flame of a lamp, not a drop of
water will fall from the snow, but the water,
as fast as it is formed, will penetrate or be
drawn up into a mass of snow by capillary
attraction. It is by virtue of this attrac
,tion that the snow purifies the atmosphere
by absorbing and retaining its noxious and
noisome gases and odors.

at a length, within a prison's walls, stretched
upon the floor of stone, be sees a man,

QT.IITTERING AND STAMMERING
CURED, Without Pain or Surgical Operation.
The'retulere of she Banner and 4th:wrote will recollect I
published a notice last Winter, headed "The Last Call to
Stuttering and Stammering Persons," in which I announced
was the only chance they would ever have of getting mired,
and all who desired the cure should either send for it by
mail or call themselves before the 10th of March, as on that
day I had made arrangements to resign my profession, and
retire from the practice. Sieve the 10th, I have personally'
consulted forty. and sent the cure by mail to sixty indi
viduals. In" every instance perfect satisfaction has been
rendered. Injustice to all who are so unfortunate as to
stutter or stammer yet. I have thought proper to give
another opportunity of being cured, and therefore would
respectfully request them to rend me $2O, (which Is less
than spy moat fee,) end I will immediately send them my
cure. By so doing they care the expense of traveling. I
am a responsible man. and if my cure is not effectual I will
agree to refund the money. Recollect. this cure never fails.
Address Dr. WYCKOFF, Box 746, Pittsburgh Poet Office.
There has been a floating population of imposters travel
ing the country, professing 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 cartificote 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 cure.
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 practiced the same for the term of
My references are of the highest order such as the Medi
cal Faculty of New York, Philadelphia, anti the University
of :Virginia, all the Press of Pittsburgh, Washington,
Greensburg, and Uniontown, PL, besides fifty thousand
persons in different parts of the country.
This cure for Stuttering and Stammering in performed in
less than one hour. There is no pain or surgical operation
The beauty of all this Is, it will care children of eve, 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 Stut
ter, by ap .lication of the cure.
It was ormerly customary to announce, that no pay
would be required unless a perfect cure was performed.
That wan done to show the people there would be no risk in
giving me a trial. But now, Inasmuch as She leading citi
zens of Pittsburgh, know my cure never fails, it would be
'Superfluous to make another such announcement.
