Speak Gently.
Speak gently—it is better far
To rule by love than fear;
Speak gently, let not harsh words mar
The good we might do here.
Speak gently—lore should whisper low
To friends when faults we find;
Gently let truthful accents flow,
Affection's voice is kind.
Speak gently to the little child,
Its love be sure to gain ;
Teach it in accents soft and mild,
It may not long remain.
Speak gently to Me young, for they
Will have enough to,bear ; ,
Pass through this life as best they may,
'T is full of anxious care.
Speak gently to the aged one,
Grieve not the care-worn heart;
The sands of life are nearly rnn—
Let such in peace depart.
Speak gently, kindly to the poor,
Let no harsh tone be heard;
They have enough they must endure,
Without an unkind word.
Speak gently to the erriasr--know
That thou art also man;
Perchance 'unkindness drove them so;
0, win them back again.
Speak gently, for 'tis like the Lord,
Whose accents, meek and mild,
Bespoke him as the Son of God,
The gracious holy child.
Washed in his blood, redeemed to life,
The family of heaven,
Flee from all anger, wrath, and strife,
Forgive as they 're forgiven.

Catechetical. Exposition.
Romans 1: 8-16.
Verse 8. First I thank my God through Jesus
Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of
throughout the whole world.
Q. 1. What does be mean when he says,
First, I thank my God, etc. ? A. He
means he would begin, the Epistle by giving
thanks on their account.
Q. 2. What is the import of the phrase,
may God ? A. It implies an assurance of
reconciliation, and a conciousness that a cov
enant of peace exists between God and the
Q. 3. Why does he say, through Jesus
Christ? A. Because he coped his thanks•
giving would be acceptable to God through
Christ, and not on account of his own good
Q. 4. On what account did he give
thanks ? A.' Because the faith, fidelity and
devotedness of the Christians at Rome, was
spoken of throughout the whole world.
Q. 5. Do the words, the whole world,
literally mean every part of the earth, with
its inhabitants? A. Not at all ; for there
were many parts where the Roman Chris
tians had never been heard of
Q. 6. What, then, is the import of the
language ? A. It means that the faith of
these Christians was spoken of very gener
ally wherever Paul went, and all through
the Christian churches.
Q. 7. If every part of the world is not
meant, why is the language used ? A. It,
and the kindred phrases, •" all the world,"
"all men," " every man," is a form of
speech used to express what is very general,
or what is characterized by almost constant
uniformity, or what is very extended and
wide-spread. And this comprehensive style
of speaking was much more common• in
Eastern than in Western countries.
Verse 9. For God is my witness, whom I
serve with my spirit in the Gospel of his Son,
that without ceasing I make mention of yon
always in my prayers.
Q. 1. Why does he state that he men
tioned them always in his prayers.? A. To
assure them of his affection, and the deep
interest he felt in their welfare.
Q. 2. How does he manifest his anxiety
to convince them that he thus felt and acted
toward them ? A. By appealing to God as
a witness that it was so.
Q. 3. Is this appeal to God to be con
sidered as an oath ? A. By no means; be
cause an oath always implies the imprecation
of Divine vengeance in case of falsehood,
but these words only imply that the speaker
can appeal to God for the truth of what he
Q. 4. When he says, God is my witness,
why does he add, whom, I serve with my
spirit in the Gospel of his Son ? A. To
show that in his appeal to God he must be
sincere, because he served God with affec.
don, and in the most exalted relation ;
hence, in these circumstances, he could not
appeal to God but in the case of truth.
Q. 5. What is meant by serving God
with the spirit? A. That the service is
not merely outward, but the whole heart
and affections engaged in it.
Q. 6. In what calling did he thus serve
God? A. In the ministry of the Gospel.
Q. 7. When he says, without ceasing I
make mention of you, does it mean that he
constantly mentioned them, and nothing
else ? A. No; the import of the language
is, that it was his constant practice to men
tion them in prayer.
Verse 10. Making request, if by an - yrneans now
at length I might have a prosperous journey,
by the will of God, to come unto you.
Q. 1. What was one special object of
request in his prayers? A. That it might
be his privilege to visit the Christians at
Q. 2. What is the import of the words,
if by any means now at length ? A. They
express the Apostle's ardent desire to see
and imply' that it had been long cher
Q. 3. What is implied in the words, lqj
the will of God f A. .A desire.tbat God
would permit, and also thatke would direct
and guide.
Q. 4. Was this request ever granted to
the Apostle ? A. He was allowed to visit
Rome, but it was as a prisoner; and his
journey might seem anything but prosper
ous; for he was shipwrecked, and suffered
much by the way. '
Q. 5. Is it an evidence that God does
not regard the prayers of his people, when
they are not answered according to their
desire? A. , No ; it is only an evidence
that God knows better than they do, what
is most for his glory and their good.
Verse 11. For I long to see you, that I may im
part unto you some spiritual gift, to the end
ye may be established.
Q. 1. Why did the Aposrle long to see
them ? A. That he might impart some
spiritual gift to them.
Q. 2. What is meant by spiritual gifts?
A. Extraordinary and miraculous endow
ments, which were common in the Apostolic
and also the ordinary gifts and
graces of the Holy Spirit.
Q. 3. For what purpose did he de
sire to impart these gifts to them ? A. In
order that they might be established.
Q. 4. How would the impartation of
these gifts tend to establish them? A.. Their
faith would be strengthened, their love in
creased, their zeal quickened, and their
steadfastness much confirmed thereby.
Verse 12. That is that I may be comforted to
gether with you, by the mutual faith both of
you and me.
Q. 1. How does the. Apostle avoid the
danger of giving offence, though he had said,
he expected to profit them .much? A. By
modestly intimating, that he expected to be
much profited also by his intercourse with
Q. 2. In what way would both he and
they be comforted by 'their mutual faith?
A. Faith here may signify piety, or godli
ness; then, by the mutual exercise of their
piety, or Christian graces, in conversation
and otherwise, they would be comforted to
gether. •
Verse 13. Now I would not have you ignorant
brethren, that oftentimes I purposed to come
unto you (but was let hitherto t ) that I might
have some fruit among you also, even as among
Ogler QontileB
Q. L Why does the Apostle 'wish them
to know that be bad often purposed to come
to them ? A. In order that his not coming
might not be ascribed to his want of love for
Q. 2. Way did he not, come when be
purposed to do so ? A. Because he was let,
or kindred, by probably various and numer
ous causes, as he does not specify any.
Q. 3. What was the fruit which be de-
siredto have among them, as among other
Gentiles? A. Spiritual fruit—the fruit of
godliness and devotion, cultivated and gath
ered by his ministerial labors among them.
Verse 14. lam debtor both to the Greeks and to
the Barbarians, both to the wise and to the
Q. 1. Who are meant here by Greeks
and Barbarians, wise and unwise? A. Peo
ple of all nations, both the civilized and the
Q. 2. How was Paul a debtor to these'?
A. Not because he had received anything
from them ; but he had received the Gospel
in trust for them, and thus he was bound to
dispense it to them.
Verse 15. So, as much as in me is, lam ready
to preach the Gospel to you that are at Rome
Q. 1. What connexion has this verse
with the preceding ? A. It is an inference
from verse 14, acknowledging his, indebted
ness to them, and his readiness to dis
charge it.
Q. 2. What is the meaning of, So,fts
much as in me is I A. Therefore, as far as
the matter rests with me, (but leavin,g the
disposal thereof to God,) I am ready to
preach, etc.
Verse`l6. For lam not ashamed of the Gospel
of Christ, for it is the power of God unto sal
vation to every one that believeth ; to the Jew
first, and also to the Greek
Q. 1. Why does be say, lam not
ashamed of the Gospel ? A. Because the
thought of preaching the Gospel at Rome,
suggested to him the necessity of freedom
from shame on its account, and of apprising
them of the fact, that be was thus free.
Q. 2. Wby did the thought of preach
ing the Gospel at Rome suggest to him the
necessity of freedom from shame ? ' A. Be=
cause he knew that if the Gospel would any
where be turned into ridicule, it would be
at Rome.
Q. 3. Why was it liable to be thus
treated at Rome? A. Because the inhab
itants were sunk in corruption ; haughty and
self• sufficient; influenced by the pride of
wealth, rank, power, and worldly wisdom;
and to such, the bumbling doctrines of the
Gospel would be very unpleasant and hate
ful, even to contempt.
Q. 4. Why was he not ashamed of the
Gokpel ? A. Because it is the power of
God to salvation.
Q. 5. Does he say it is the power of
God to salvation to all men? A. No; only
to them that believe.
Q. 6. Does the Apostle mean that un
believers are saved by the Gospel ? A. No;
if his language has any meaning, it is, that
unbelievers are not saved.
Q. 7. What, they, are we to think of
Universalism, Which teaches that all are
saved ? A. That it is the voice of Satan
saying to men, "Ye shall not surely die,"
though ye refuse to believe.
Q. 8. How-is the Gospel the power of
God to salvation ? A. It is the means
through which the power of God saves men.
Q. 9. Are men saved only by the power
of God? A. Most assuredly they are; be
cause they have no power to save them
Q. 10. What is the meaning of, to the
Jew first, and to the Greek. also? A. That
the Gospel is for both Jews and-Greeks;
bat to be offered to the Jews first,
Macaulay and the Scotch
The history of Scotland, and the reputa ,
tion of Presbyterianism, are so intimately
connected, that members of our Church
must ever take a deep interest in having the
events of the last three hundred years,
which Occurred in the North of Great Britain,
fairly represented.
Macaulay, the historian, with all his bril
liant powers as a writer, has shown himself
deeply inimical to orthodoxy, and to that
deep devotion and religious strictness which
belong to the faith of our Church.
Amongst others who have noticed this,
and have corrected his misrepresentations,
and repelled his assaults, is Blackwood's
Magazine. In the number of this work
for September, is an able article. Scot
land contended with England long and
nobly for a proper independence, and
her people were invincibly dttermined
to form their Kirk after their own
fashion—that is, as they were taught in
Scripture. , Nothing short of this would
satisfy her ministers and her people. The
reviewer, noting this, and the remark of
Macaulay, and others, giving her over to a
most lugubrious and unlovely fanaticism,"
thus proceeds :
Then, out of the heart of. this fanaticism;
out of the heated and fiery atmosphere
where Mr. Macaulay's Carneronians appear
like so many metaphysical Lucifers; out of
the world ruled by 'a frightful gang of
preachers, who hunt old women and young
' fools to the stake—there rises, without either
change of principle or alteration of senti
meat, not, strange to record ! a community
debased, miserable, and priest ridden, as it
ought to have been, according to all logic;
but a nation prosperous among the prosper
i ous ; a country rich, powerful, moral,
educated, renowned for enterprise, great
l in invention, and rich in all that abundance
and plentitude of thought, which is -the
noblest growth of national freedom. Out of
'the very heart of that dismal cloud of reli
pious gloom* which overspreads the land in
the pages of Mr. Macaulay, and in the nis
representation of many a writer less gifted
than he, rises a - strain of national music,
Isweet, tender, and joyous as the very voice
1 of nature; a wealth of poetry, noble and
I melodious, which any country might rejoice
to own, and a series of novels unparalleled
in the world. Has Scotland, then, changed
i ber principles and modified her faith ? No I
lit is not possible that an Established Church
could have remained so long without breaks
and offshoots; but the secessions from the
Church of Scotland, 'great and small, have 1
every one of them pursued her back to the l
'. closest letter of her ancient creed, and aimed
themselves, not at novelty, but at a stricter
,and firmer adherence to the unchanged
Standards of their faith. This country,
even in its dissent, remains unanimous. One
law of doctrine and order possesses, with a
' singular tenacity, the mind of the nation;
its other sects are all importations, limited,l
in number, and foreign to the soil ; and
even external' separation has pot been able
to disintegrate the natural and indestructi- i
. .ble union of belief, and thought. The lanati
-1 ohm of out fathers, glorious madness VI
cleaves to the hearts even of our children.
Full three hundred years of it have been in
Scotland ; it may be a very bad fanaticism—
blood-thirsty, unlovely, morose, and doleful;
so a great many people say, and so, with
a sad want of originality, says Mr. Macau
lay. Yet somehow, it is very clear, Scotland
has thriven under the shadow of this upas—
thriven, expanded, stretched abroad her
arms to the winds, and her head to the shy;
given the world full assurance, many a day,
of a free heart and a healthful spirit; and,
not least, (as the story goes,) rendered some
sturdy assistance to the production of Mr.
Macaulay, an orator of distinction, a politi
cian of fame, a brilliant essayist, and a his
torian unrivaled in popularity. Honor to
our blithe old mother, though she carries
her mirth in her heart more than on her
brow"! and-a 'swift, yet not unredeernable
downfall to all and sundry her traducers
and enemies, be they friend or fiend !
Amen !
For it is still as true as ever it was, that
men do not, gather grapes of thorns, or figs
of thistles." If this historiau's account
were true, an Italy, or an Ireland, without
the beauty of the one or the wit of the
other, is'what our country must have been.
We are content to leave the facts of histoiy
to speak for us ; and with these so plainly
on our side, it is a great deal more easy to
believe the truth than the fiction; for in this,
as in all other cases, there is no such extent
of unreasoning and inconsiderate credulity
to be found anywhere, as among the enemies
of the faith.-
`After exposing the historian's misrepre
sentations of the Highlanders and the Scotch
politicians, the reviewer remarks :
We come now, however, to a part of Mr.
Macaulay's representations more important
than his opinion of the Highlalds, or his
strictures on the politics of the Revolution.
We are neither. Divines nor controversialists.
It is not our business to defend the especial
tenets of that faith under whose shadow our
country has grown and flourished; and we
are perfectly aware that no amount of reli
gious intolerance exceeds the eager intoler
ance manifested in general by those who
make no particular profession of religion,
against all who do. But we cannot help
remarking Mr. Macaulay's exhibition of one
of the most evident features of the time.
Within these dozen years or so—we do not
think the mania is much older—or rather the
litterateur, a personage not be be described
by the suave eighteenth century designation
or MUD of Letters—has taken upon himself
to attack and overthrow something which he
supposes to be Calvinism, and which, doubt
less, he means to distinguish thereby as the
most, rampant form of sombre and unlovely
religion. The monster thus attacked is a
very ugly monster; but flaps its arms
abroad into- the, sky with a suspicious per
.plexity of 'outline, and creaks in its move
ments as living limbs never ereaked in the
common air of heaven. While our adven
,knight rushes against it in all the
enthusiasm of chivalry, we, who are only
a spectator, stand by, much puzzled, and
look on through the storm of the onset with
a certain perception of something ludicrous
checking our interest and our sympathy.
What is it ? Alas, it is no giant—it is only
the windmill of the old story; and the zeal
of our champion tumbles down, sheer out of
the sublime into quite another region, as he
essays his maiden weapons on that porten
tous arm of wood.
We. desire to;do injustice to no man. We
do not accuse Mr. Macaulay of willfully mis
representing the doctrines of our faith, nor
the spirit of the same. We do not assert
that Mr. Dickens knows what he is doing in
the unfortunate production by which, t this
moment, be is bringing down his own fame.
We will not even say that the Broad Church,
though it is a clergyman, and ought to be
instructed,. really knows any better. What
we say is the simple assertion, that the mon
ster introduced to us by these accomplished
and able writers, and to which Mr. Macau
lay especially has given local name and hab
itation, has no existence in any creed, in any
Church, or in any religious> community in
the world. '
This being acknowledged, we are perfect
ly willing that every man should fight his
own win 3mill, after his own fashion. We
give our free consent, that every individual
Frankenstein should have its head cut off
incontinently by its own proper creator; but
we will not consent to have the faith, in
which we are. rejoiced to live and die, iden
tified with.• the monster of any man's imagi
nation, and still less to suffer a general slur
and stigma upon the Church and the memo
ry of our fathers, to us the most precious
things in history.
We have read a good many books of
Calvinistic theology, and heard in Our day
no small amount of sermons of the same
complexion ; yet we confess• we were sadly
ignorant of the doctrine of reprobation till
we began to make acquaintance with such
writers as Maurice and Kingsley, Dickens
and Macaulay. It is true, and we confess
it, that the Church of Scotland, parhaps im
pelled by a national spirit of logic more
absolute than that of England, and more in
the habit of following a certain truth to its
inevitable conclusion, solemnly admits the
darker alternative of that simple statement,
-in which lies the summary of her faith,
" There is no other name given under heaven
whereby we can be saved, but the nameJllf
Jesus." But that from this the Chnia of
Scotland has ever deduced any other practi
cal corollary than that of the Apostle,
" Preach the Gospel," we unhesitatingly
challenge Mr. Macaulay to prove"; and not
only Mr. - Macaulay, though he is a redoubt
able champion, but all the world.

Twenty years ago, the total consumption
of Augar, including the indigenous article,
was estimated at one thousand millions
pounds. We find the consumption of 1855
computed at two thousand seven hundred
and sixty millions pounds. Ot that amount,
Russia. consumed 126,280,000 lbs.

The total consumption of the United
States, in 1855, was about seven hundred
and twenty millions pounds.
The sugar production in the South, and
the quantity of maple sugar obtained in the
other States, amounts only to a third of
the entire consumption of the United States.
Cane sugar was manufactured, according
to the census of 1850, .to the, amount of
247 1 E47 Mils., of LOOP lbs., or about 247,-
500,000 lbs., of that year. The entire pro
duction of maple sugar was 34,250,000 lbs.
in the same time. Since that time, the lat
ter has been reported as steadily decreasing,
while the former, in all probability, for the
present year, if not below the' above figure,
at least will not be much above it. From
1854 to 1855, a decrease took place of 6;000
hhds., and that of this year is said to be
much greater. Our entire production for
1856, therefore, at its maximum, is no more
than 280,000,000 lbs. Last year we im
ported 440,000,000 lbs., re-exports sub
stracted. The above figures give a consump
tion of 720,000,000 lbs., or about 29 lbs. per
head of the population, which is a higher
ratio than that of any other country in the
world. Mr. Tegobozsky, in his statistical
work on• Russia, estimates, the relative con
sumption of the various countries of Europe,
as follows :
Great Bri
Mr. R. C. Webster, living on the old road
to Hackensack, about, a ruiile from the New
York turnpike, and two miles from the Pas
saic Bridge at East Newark, some years ago
discovered on his property a peculiar rock,
which was found very useful for fertilizing,
and also for making paint, and it led to the
formation of a Manufacturing Company,
which purchased the land from Mr. W. for

of oxide of lime and cobalt, and a small por

known for a long time, and had been pur

purpose of• grinding the rock into , powder,

ployed, 'who turn out from 300 •to 400 bar

DITtIENSE GROWTH.—The population of
Cincinnati within the corporate limits,
(which includes Hamilton county,) is stated
top be 470,000. The exports from that city
for the year 1855-'6 amounted to 850,844,-
780; in 1851-'2 to only $33,234,896. This
gives an idea of the great increase of busi
ness within four years. The imports into
the city the last year amounted to $75,295,-

CURED, Without Pain or Surgical Operation. -
The readers of the Banner and Adurcaft will, recollect
Published a notice last Winter, beaded " The Last Call to
Stuttering and Stammering Persons," in which I announced
was the only chance they would ever have of getting cured,
and all who desired the cure should either send for it hy
mail or call themselves before the lath of March, as on that
day I had made arrangements to resign my profession, and
retire from the practice. Since the lath, I have personally
consulted forty, and sent the cure by mail to AXty. 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 opportunity of being cured, and therefore would
respectfully request them to send me $2O, (which is leas
than my usual fee,) and I will immediately send them my
core. By so doing they save the expenee of traveling. I
am a responsible man. and if my cure is not effectual I will
agree to refundthe money. Recollect. thin cure never faßs.
Address Dr. WYOKOPF, Boa 746; Pittsburgh Post Office.
There has been e. eating population of imposters travel
ing the rauntry, praessing to cure impediments 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 cure.
Through untiring pereeverance, 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, far 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 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 fifty 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 it.
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. • I of
fer to forfeit $lO,OOO if any person can ever afterwards Stut
ter, by application of the mire.
It was formerly customary to annmince, that no pay
would be required urdess a perfect cure was performed.
That was done to show the people there would be no risk In
*giving me a trial. But now, inasmuch as the leading citi
zens of Pittsburgh, know my cure - never fails, it would be
superfluous to make another such announcement.

Nature finds no new enemy to combat with this deligbth
tonic in the system. Ifs effects are almost magical, yet ti
cureperantenent. It communicates no violent sboch to 11
'System, but by arousing its vital energy to normal ertit.r,
enables it to throw off the owl - se, and thus thoroughly erK.
icates the disease.
When its medicinal virtues are so universally adtnowledi
ed, and particularly here, where it has become so popular
family medicine, that it is sold by many of the grocers. , >
well as all the druggists, It would seem needless to of,
further evidence; yet as there are, doubtless, some who bar,
tried many advertised remedies. and still suffer from fiss.
pepsia in ono or more of its dreadful forms, we subjoin 1.1. i
following certificates, the authenticity of which cannot be
doubted, coming, as they do, from persons so well known.
Wn,t. Behnehnian, Bsq., the well known I ithogropher, e
"I 'have frequently used Bourbave's Holland Bitters, end tai:
it invariably relieves indigestion and debility."
Rey. Samuel Babcock says: "1 found special relief from
its use for a severe headache, with which I had long sat
J. W. Woodmen. Bsq„, saga: "1 have used Buerbave's lic)
land Bitters myself, and reoomMended it to others, knovier,
It to be just what it is represented."
Aid. Jonathan Neely/of Lower St-Clair, says: "I irc.
derived great benefit from its we, for weakness of the stem
soh and indigestion."
James ilt, Murphy says: "After EoVerai physicians Ic,',
failed, Beerhave's Holland Bitters removed the pain tit n, 1.3
benrt and side, arising from indigestion."
The editor of the ICittanning Free Press Faye : After cli•
of the best physicians in this place bad failed, Itecriran,?:
Holland 'Bitters cured me of the worst form of dyspepsa.'
Francis Felix, only manufacturer of the " original Eximel
of Coffee," says: ' I know that sow- Holland hitters is
of the best medicines in the world, for a disordered stenn.l
or liver."
Mr. Ludwig, editor of the Pad:a, Baltimore, pronounces 11
a medicine deeerving the confidence of the public.
.Dr. Eliethart, the leading German physician of Pennsy:.
vania, has prescribed it frequently during the last three
years, with marked success, in debilitated states of the di
gestice organs; or of the system generally.
The manager of BaDon's Vinegar Factory says: used
myself, and was therefore induced to try its effects upon v.y
wife, (troubled with the great debility common to all et
consureptlvachabit,) and reallyit is doing her more good tbs:
anything she has ever taken."
