*dui Viottrß• 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. For the Presbyterian Banner and Advocate Presbytery of Des Moines.

M. cttlle. For the Presbyterian Banner and Advocate. 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 speaker. 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 ness. 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 says. 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 Rome. 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 them, and imply' that it had been long cher ished. 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 churches, 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 them. 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 lIIE PRESBYTERIAN BAIN:NE.Ii AND ADN6CATE. 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 them. 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 unwise. Q. 1. Who are meant here by Greeks and Barbarians, wise and unwise? A. Peo ple of all nations, both the civilized and the rude. 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 also. 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 selves. 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, NistoritaL 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 i 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 turous ,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. Xil i istillaramo. Co l nwaxoption. of Sugar. Twenty years ago, the total consumption of Augar, including the indigenous article, was estimated at one thousand 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 Belgium, Holland, France, Denmark, 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 8450,000. They continued selling the land, for fetiliz ing purposes until recently, when it was dis covered that the stone contained about four per cent. of nickel, and also a large proportion of oxide of lime and cobalt, and a small por tion of silver ' which parties in Europe had known for a long time, and had been pur chasing the rock at $l5 per ton, for the pur pose of extracting these valuable substances. A steam mill was recently erected for the purpose of• grinding the rock into , powder, and about twenty men are constantly em ployed, 'who turn out from 300 •to 400 bar rels a week,. each barrel weighing 400 , pounds. This is the second and richest dis covery of nickel in the United States, and promises ,to be very profttable,• the mine be ing estimated to be worth millions of dollars. A shaft is now being sunk and other im provements made to carry on the business with more facility.---Newark, N. J., Advo cate.

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,- 901. PE2II43YLVANIA, Banks ofPittsburgh, par Banks of Philadelphia, par Bank of Oharobersburg, Rank of Gettysburg, 3.4 .

TUTTERING AND STAMMERING M 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. myal-tf - BR. WYCKOFF.
