L' BILVOL--Evening Time.
It shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall
be xiv 7.
At evening time let there be light;
Life's little day draws near its close ;
Around me fall the shades of night—
The night of death, the grave's repose;
To crown my joys, to end my woes,
At evening time let there be light.
At evening time let there be light ;
Stormy and dark has been my day ;
Yet rose the morn benignly bright,
Dews, buds, and flowers cheer'd all the way;
Oh for one sweet, one parting ray!
At evening time let there be light.
At evening time there shaltbe light;
For God hath said, "so let it be!"
Fear, doubt, and anguish, take their flight,
HiR glory now is risen on me;
Thine eyes shall his salvation see—
'Tis evening time, and there is light.

Because he is the Suvereigu ,lluler of a)1;
claiming and deserving most sincere love
and obedience from all.
Q. 5. Whit is meant by Christ's being
mode of the seed of David, uccordiv to
the flesh ? A. That 5 u his human nature
he was a descendant of David, king of Is
rael.
4. And declared to be the Son of God with power,
according to the Spirit of holiness, by the res
urrection from the dead.
Q 1. What are we to understand by
Son of. God with power? A. It weans that
he was vested with power; as he said to

be the Son of God with power P A. By
the resurrection from the dead.
Q. 3. How did his resurrection declare,

evidence that he was what he claimed to be
before his death.
Q. 4. What did he claim to be? A.
He claimed to be the Son of God, the
promised Messiah, vested with all power
and his resurrection proved that these claims
were valid.
Q. 5. How did his resurrection prove

take it again; according to his own dec
laration, it showed also, that be had
power to send down the Holy Spirit from
heaven, to carry on the same work in which
he claimed to be engaged when on earth.
'Q. 6. In what other respect was Christ's
resurrection the proof of his Divinity ? A.
It was God's testimony to the truthfulness
of Christ's character; had he been an int
pastor, God had not raised him from the
dead, taken him up to heaven, seated him
at his own right hand in glory, given him
the Spirit to dispense, and all power to ex
ercise; but all this he did for one who
claimed to be the Son of God; and thus
God sanctioned that claim; and proclaimed
to the universe that Jesus of Nazareth was
His only-begotten Son.
Q. 7. What are we to understand by the

Q N. Was he made the Son of God
by his resurrection ? A. No; he was ouly
declared to be what he always had been.
Q. 11. On what grounds is he here
called the Sun of God ? A. Not as Adam
is so called, because God created him ; not
because of his miraculous conception by
the Holy Ghost; not because of his inedi
ataxial dignity or office, but because he is a
partaker of the Divine nature the same in
essence and attributes with God the Fattier.
5. By whom we have received grace and apostle
ship, for obedience to the faith among all na
tions, for his name.
Q. 1. Whom does the Apostle mean
when he says, we have received grace and
apostleship ? A. He means himself, but
perhaps classes himself with the other apos
tles.
Q 2. Why does he say we, if only him
'self is meant? A. It is a modest way in
which a writer speaks of himself, and is
common to many languages.
Q. 3. By whom did he receive grace
and apostleship? A. By the Son of God.
Q. 4. What is meant by grace and
apostleship ? A. Grace implies the gra
cious influences of the Holy Spirit to qual
ify for the office ; and apostleship means the
apostolic office itself.
Q. 5. For what end did he receive
grace and apostleship A. That he might
procure obedience to the faith, that is the
Gospel, among all nations.

sake of Christ's name; that it might every
where be known, trusted and honored.
6. Among whoni are ye also the called of Jesus
Christ.
Q. 1: Among whom does he my-itho
THE PRESBYTERIAN BANNBIB AND Al) V OUA lE.
Christians at Rome were ? A. Among the
faithful of the nations.
Q. •2. When he styles them the called
of Jesus Christ, what does he mean? A.
Ile means that they are not merely invited,
but called with au effectual and holy call
ing, out of a state of nature into a state of
grace ; and that they belong to Jesus
Christ.
7. To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called
to be Saints, Grace to you, and peace, from God
our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Q. I. What is the nature of the 7th
verse 7 A. It contains the salutation.
Q. 2. With what other verse is it con
nected in sense ? A. With verse Ist.
Q. 3. What is the nature of the inter
vening verses? A. They are a succession
of thoughts, suggested one by another in
the full and fervent mind of the apostle.
Q. 4. How must the 7th verse be com
menced, in order to the sense ? A. Thus :
" Paul," to all that be in Rome, etc.
Q 5. Does the word all, here, desig
nate every individual i❑ the city of Rome ?
A. No! only the beloved of God.
Q. 6. Why, does he assume that they_
were beloved. of God ? A. From the fact
that they had been called to be saints.
Q. 7. How were they called to be saints?
A. They bad been regenerated and justi
fied; and were advancing in holiness, by
God's grace abounding unto them through
his Son.
Q. 8. Is it implied that every professed
Christian at Rome was thus regenerated and
justified ? A. No; but the language is ad
dressed only to those who were; and not to
hypocrites and false-professors. • And thus
it is in all the Epistles; when the language
implies that those addressed are the true
people of God, it is only such that are in
tended, and none of the false who may be
among them.
Q. 9. Does the term Saint, or holy, al
ways imply moral purity, or holiness of
heart ? A. No; it is often used to desig
nate what is set apart from "a common to a
sacred use, without reference to moral pu
rity. The Jews as a nation, were called the
holy people, not because they were all mor
'ally pure, but because God had separated
them from the other nations, to be his peo
ple. And in this sense Mount Zion was
called the holy kill, and Jerusalem the
holy city. And thus the term Saint or
holy, frequently implies only an outward
relation, and not inward virtue or holiness.
Q. 10. What is the saluation used by'
the Apostle ? A. Grace to you and peace
from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus
Christ.
Q 11. May grace and peace, here, be
viewed as having a relation to each other ?
A. Grace may be considered as the cause,
and peace the effect.
Q. 12. How are they the cause and of
feet? A. Grace is the favor of God, and
peace the consequence flowing from it; there
is no true peace without this grace.
Q. 13. Is there much implied in the
blessing here invoked ? A. It is compre
hensive of all good; for when we enjoy the
favor of God, and the peace it affords, we
are truly happy.
Q. 14. What is implied in the words,
God our Father? A. That God is to his
people, what a father is to his beloved chil
dren ; and that he is to them the ultimate
Bourse of all their blessings.
Q. 15. What isimplied in the words,
the Lord Jesus Christ? 'A. That he is our
Ruler, Saviour, and anointed Advocate; and
in common with God the Father, the Author
of all our blessings.
Q t 6. ' What is the order in which these
blessings come from the Father. and the
Son ? A.• Our heavenly Father is the foun
thin of all our blessings, and the Lord
Jesus Christ the channel through which we
receive them.
Agricultural.
Dietetic Economies
As Winter is approaching with its pinch
ings of the poor, it may be well for many
to study, what articles of food are the most
nutritious and cheapest; that is, what kinds
of food will go farthest for the least money.
Not a few in our large cities lay the founda
tion of incurable and fatal diseases, by being
stinted in their food, and who would not
have been stinted, had they expended what
money they had in the most judicious man
ner. The ignorance and inconsiderateness
of the poor is sometimes amazing. The la
dies of the Widows' Aid Society, who do
so much for humanity every Winter, have
found it expedient to refuse giving money
to any of their beneficiaries, but ascertain
their actual wants, and give them orders for
such articles of food as are deemed best.
They found that when money was given, it
would be expended for tea and coffee, and
fine flour for the luxuries instead of the
necessaries of life. We trust the following
table may be of practical advantage to this
humane society, as well as to many poor, and
prudent and worthy families in this, and
other large cities and towns. We believe a
man feels as happy after a plain dinner, as
after a luxurious one; certain are we, that
he sleeps the sounder that night,. and feels
the better for it all next day ; all the advan
tage to the luxurious liver, is in the tran
sient passage down the throat.

As to the blanks above, any housekeeper
can weigh the articles, and by comparing
the price per bushel or dozen, with the
amount of nutriment yielded, can determine
at once, the relative value as a food. But
it will be seen at once, that white beans,
whole or split peas, hominy, oat meal, corn
meal, samp, bulled corn, crushed wheat,
rice, are among the cheapest, most whole
some and most nutritious articles of food,
and are alike recommended to those who
want to be economical, and those who want
to be healthy. If fruits were largely used
with the above diet, either baked, if green,
or stewed when dried, both the digestion
and health would be greatly improved, to
say nothing of the agreeableness of the ad
dition. Not one person in a thousand has
any adequate idea of the value of fruits as
an article of diet. A thousand bushels of
grapes and apples should be grown. where
one now is, especially as considering the
outlay and labor, they are the most profit
able of all orbpa.—.Haa'a Jour. of HeaWe.

I A Model for Mothers.
A few weeks since, I was traveling with
a gentleman, on an outside car, through the
County of Wexford. The day was delight
ful, and the geniality of the weather seemed
to have expanded our hearts by its influence;
for we soon became as-friendly as though
we had known each other for years. He
was, I think, traveling for -some house, and
was a thorough Englishman, to judge by
his appearance and conversation, though,
from what he said, thirty years' residence
iu the Emerald Isle had imbued him with
an honest admiration of the Irish character.
He was perhaps fifty years of age, was mar
ried, and the father of several children.
He said he disliked traveling, and avoided
it as much as possible. I asked him the
reason, and here lay the secret. He pos
seE.se.d in his wife a great treasure—not only
because she loved and respected her hus
band, but chiefly from the exemplary man
ner in which she brought up her young
family. In the course of conversation he
said, ky wife, as sure as each evening
comes, brings all her little ones around her,
and gives them Scripture lessons out of the
Old and New Testaments. She shows them,
from the Bible, what they ought to believe
what they should do, and what to avoid.
They know more of religion and God's
Woid, than numbers of grown persons I
meet with every day, and they look iorward
to the regular employment ot the evening,
with the greatest delight. I feeLthat noth
ing improves me so'..much as to sit quietly
by and listen to them. She gives them
puzzling questions out of The Bible, and it
is really astonishing what. clever answers
they give her. Whenever a good thing
conies into my head, I. say something my
self; but, indeed," said he, with charming
simplicity, "in general I think it better to
say nothing. I feel each evening a better
wan, and I think it does me as much good
as going to hear a sermon from Mr. Gregg.
The clergymen very often visit our family,
and they say that my children are the best
answerers at Sunday School. Ah ! Sir, I
feel it a great loss being .away from my
family, even for a few weeks."
Here is a picture of a sacred family, a
Christian household. Here is "the hus
band sanctified by the wife." .A.rid will not
God rain down abundant.blessings on that
little circle ? Yes, assuredly will bless
them, both in time 'and eternity; they will
prosper in this life, and, I believe, live in
the next.
I know , a lady, the mother of a very
large family; and, though upon her de
volves the care of 11.• great .household, yet
she finds time, in addition to the regular
family worship, to assemble her children
around her each morning, to instruct and
admonish them in the things that pertain
to their eternal welfare. Whether she now
reaps the fruits of her watchful care, I can
not tell; but I believe that she wil reap
them, for God's Word does "not return un
to him void." Let us never cease our ef
forts, and they will at last be crowned with
gloriOus success. "Cast thy bread upon
the waters, for thou shalt find it after many
days."—(Eccl. xi: 1.) The . greatest bles
sing a man can have is, a good wife, and
the choicest gift of God to a child is a
mother who puts her trust in him. "Who
can find a virtuous woman ? for her price is
far above - rubies. The heart of her husband
shall safely trust in her, so that he shall
bare no need of spoil."—Prov. xxxi : 10,11.
Worthy, indeed, is such a one of honor
and esteem, for no heavier duty than hers
could be imposed on any one. " Her chil
dren rise up, and call her blessed ; her hus
band, also, and he praiseth her."--Prov.
xxxi : 28.
We often bear people talking about the
rights of women, the state of political non
existence in which,; they are kept, and so
forth; but. do such persons think for a mo
ment to what post women are called ? Itis
a post of the highest honor.
To what is the formation of character to
be ascribed? Chiefly to education. And
who forms the character of the man 'for good
or evil, when the mind is young and plastic,
and can be moulded easily ? Always the
mother. Mothers educate the nation ; and
it often lies in the power of the mother,
under God, to make her son a hero or a
villain,
One word more, and I have done.
If every mother in this kingdom did her
duty, like those two here described, what
would be the result? Where would be our
criminal courts, our jails, our bulks ? Where
would be our lawsuits, our strifes, and ha
treds ? Where would be our apostacies ?
where our rank infidelity ? Where would
•be dishonesty ? Where would famine and
oppression, misery and vice, raise their a.p•
palling cries? They could not live. No
thing would exist but peace and joy. How
calmly might each mother lay her head upon
the pillow of death, if she could call her
loved one to her bedside, and say, " 'From
a child thou bast known the Holy Scrip.
tures, which are able to make thee wise
unto salvation !' Go forth, then, my son,
armed with the sword of the Spirit, and quit
you like a man in the battle of life."
It is an excellent thing to teach your child
to read the ancient poets and sages; but
forget not to teach him to discern the finger
of his God Let him learn, if you will, how
to cast up accounts and work out equations;
but let him learn, also, bow to solve this
problem, " What shall it profit a man if he
shall gain the whole world, and lose his own
soul ? or what shall a man give in exchange
for - his soul ?"—Ambrose Lawson.

THE PROGRESS OF OVR COUNTRY.--It is
stated that the population of the eleven
infant colonies in 1701 was 262,000 souls.
Georgia and Delaware were added to the
number akut 1749, and the census reports
give us 1,046,000. In the year 1775, the
thirteen colonies had 2,303,000 whites, and
500,000 slaves. After the adoption of the
present Constitution, in 1790, there were
thirteen States, with 3,172,654 white,
and
50,456 free colored, and 697,807 slaves.
In 1850, the States had increased to thirty
one, and the population to 19,550,000
whites, 434,000 free colored, and 2,204,000
slaves. The total population at this time is
approaching thirty millions.
WEALTH.—The less you leave your chil
dren when you die, the more they will have
twenty year 3 afterward. Wealth inherited
should be the, incentive to exertion. In
stead of that, "it is the title-deed to sloth."
The only money that does a man good is
that which he earns himself. A ready
made fortune, like ready-Made clothes,
seldom fits the man who comes into posses
sion.
SETTLING IRELAND.—It is stated that
the number of English and Scotch settled
in Ireland is now wore than double what it
was only ten years ago. A Galway paper
says : The West of Ireland seems destined
to be 'silently revolutionized to the Scott and
Saxon.
SUFFERINGS.- - -A. bold, fearless profession
of Christ often exposes to suffering ; but it
is an bonor to suffer for Jesus, and such
sufferings will terminate in glory.

STUTTERING AND STAMMERING
CURED, Wit bout Pain or Surgical Operation.
The readers of the Banner and Athacate will recollect I
published a notice lest Winter, headed "The Last Call to
Stuttering and Stammering Persons," in which I annoimeed
was the only chance they would ever hare of getting cured,
cud all who desired the cure should either send for it by
mail or call themselves before the lOth of March, as on thai
day I had made arrangements to resign my profession, and
retire from the practice. Since the lOth, 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 hlve thought proper to give
another opportunity of being cured, and therefore would
respectfully request them to send me $2O, (which Is tees
than my usual fee,) and I will immediately send them my
cure. By so doing they save 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, Rox 74E, Pittsburgh Post 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 certificate purporting to be mine, vesting
in them full power and authoriry 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 practised the same for the term of
nine years.
Illy references are of the highest 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 fifLy thousand
persons in different parts of the country.
This cure for Stuttering and Stammering is performed in
less than one hour. There is no pain or surgical operation
attending IL
The beauty of all this is, it will cure children of five, and
adults at the age of one hundred years. A person who is
cured by it. can never again stutter, even if they try. lof
fer to forfeit $lO,OOO if any person can ever afterwards Stwt
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 riskin
glvingme a trial lint now, inasmuch as the leading eiti-
Zeta of Pittsburgh, know my cure never fails, it would be
superfluous to make another such announcement.
