There is very much in this book from which
we do not dissent. The testimony of the Pres
*Wean Church on the subject of Slavery in
1818, is inherited by the Old School Body, and
from that testimony it has never departed. So
far then as Mr. Barnes can logically and fairly
extend the legitimate influence of that testimony ,
i • .
we are willing to accompany him. One object
of the voluthe before us seems to be , an attempt to
demonstrate to the world that the 'New School
Body has been more faithful, more honest and
More successful in contending against the evils of
the system of bondage which exists in the South
ern States than the Old School. For this end he
produces the resolutions adopted by the New
School Assembly in 1839, in 1843, and again in
,The subject was again discussed in 1849,
in 1860, and in subsequent years. In all these
disoussions we are unable to perceive any practi- .
..oal advancement. So far as testimony against an
evil is concerned, `the New School is not one pace
in advance of the position occupied in 1818.
There may have been more talk, and more re
solving, and re-resolVing in the New School As
sembly than in the Old School, bat for all prao
tiOal purposes this agitation has as yet been use
less. There is another point requiring notice.
Mr. Barnes sets forth the evils connected with
slavery as it exists in the families of church
members, and even of ministers in the South.
From these evils he admits that his own denomi
nation is not free. How then, we ask, with all
due respect, does it come to pass that Mr. Barnes
does not adopt the Constitutional method which
the Courts and laws of his Church supply him
withal for the removal of this great scandal ? As
a last resource, the New School Assembly has
had a Committee appointed to report anent (Scot
ties) its powers on the subject. The Report sub
mitted in May, 1858, is a learned and laborious
document, but it too has just left the question, so ,
far as the. Assembly is- concerned, where it found
it. One thing is obvious, however, Mr. Barnes
can have no difficulty in calling into activity the
discipline of the Church in the inferior Courts,
in all cases of wrong doing, such as he sets forth
in this volume. He knows this ; and he knows
also that if an inferior Judicatory should refuse
to take up a complaint, he and others in the New
School Assembly, possess the power - of dealing
with that refractory and unfaithful tribunal as
its dereliction of duty deserved. Instead, then,
of reiterating, as Mr. Barnes has done in this
volume, many truths which have been published
again and again without breaking the fetters off
a single slave, or even alleviating the sufferings
of any who are oppressed, it seems to us that
Mr. Barnes would really exalt his own denomina
tion More effectually, were he and others of his
brethren to commence a system of combatting
with judicial weapons, those evils which he says
are admittedly existing among the members of
PRIVATE THOUGHTS Upon Religion and a Christian
Life. By William Beverage, D.D., Lord Bishop
of St Asaph. Two vols., 18cno., pp- 270 and
141. New York: Robert Carter 4 Brothers,
530 Broadway. 1857.
When Beveridge was dying, a brother bishop
very justly said regarding him, "There goes one
of the greatest and one of the best men that
England bred." Beveridge was born in 1638,
and educated in Cambridge. He was ordained in
1660, and settled at Ealing, in Middlesex. The
following year he was appointed to a church in
London, whereupon he resigned his country par
ish. Subsequently he was made a Prebend in
St. Louis Cathedral, and Archdeacon of Cole
chester. A stall in Canterbury was also given to
him, and he afterwards became chaplain to King
William and Queen Mary. This latter appoint
ment led to his elevation to the Episcopal bench.
The pious bishop Ken had been ejected from the
See of Bath and Wells, and it was offered to Bev
eridge. He could not be persuaded to accept a
place rendered vacant by mere political consider •
ations, and it was not till 1704 that he accepted
the bishopric of St. Asaph, which he held until
his death, in 1707. During his whole life he
stood pre-eminent for piety and devotedness.
His learning was most varied and profound. Hie
writings show that he was well skilled in the ori
ental tongues, and in Jewish learning. At times
an occasional obscurity may be observed in his
writings, owing to the influence on his mind of
the metaphysics of the day; but the spirituality.
and fervor of his works have long commended
them to all who can appreciate the Gospel. These
volumes should have a place on the shelf in
the Christian household, beside the " Private
Thoughts of Adam," for which they are suitable
The following list of small works, each of them
most admirable, will show that our Board is now

We have given the title of this book at length,
because it fully sets forth the contents of the
volume. It is one of the productions of Jacob
Abbott, and is decidedly among the very best of
his numerous performances. So far as maps and
illustrations can be of , use, the - work contains an
abundant supply, and while the letter press is
thrown into the form of question and answer,
there is an absence of that painful tautology and
iteriem whieh`volnmes of a catechetical structure
often present. This is a capital book for the

8. Perversion; 0. M., .De Tocqueville's France

will see that this is a varied and rich number.
The last article will no doubt be the first read by
American's. As might be expected, the writer
takes the side of the " Republican " party, as the

Welly from, the Life of Joseph. By the Rev.
JOn Cumming, minister of the Scotch
Church, Crown Court, London. 12m0., pp.
310. Philadelphia : Lindsay 4- Blakiston. 1856.
We are much better pleased with this volume
than with those of a prophetical character which
have lately, in such abundant profusion, issued
from the pen of Dr. Cumming. It deserves a
wide circulation. It contains a goodly measure
of Gospel principles, enforced and illustrated by
the different phases of the patriarch's character,
and the circumstances of his eventful life.

The title justly describes this little work. It
is indeed multum in parvo, clear, concise and
level to any ordinary comprehension. The size
of the work, and its lucid character render it
well suited for distribution by pastors, in all re
gions where Baptists are troublers of Zion, or
where ignorance on the part of church members
may require that a manual should be supplied.

Verse 17. For therein is the righteousness of
God revealed from faith to faith; as it is writ
ten, The just shall live by faith.
Q. 1. What is the connection of this
verse with the preceeding ? A. It states
the reason why the Gospel is the power of
God unto salvation.
Q. 2. What is that reason ? A. It is,
because through,, or in it, the Gospel, the
righteousness of God is revealed to be by,
or of faith, and offered on the condition of
Q. 3.. Why is _this verSe viewed' as one
of great importance ? A. Because it con
tains the substance of the plan of redemp
tion ; and ' hence the main theme of the
Q. 4. What is it in the verse, which. is
considered as. the substance of the plan of
redemption? A. It-is, the righteousness of
God, by faith.
'Q. 5. Why is the phrase, the righteous
ness.of God, viewed as having' this compre
hensive meaning? A: Becauie it this'
righteousness which, gives to the Gospel its
Q. 6. Does righteousness here signify
the Divine attribute of justice or rectitude?
A. No; because it does not require the Gos
pel to reveal the justice of God ; the law
does this; and if the Gospel revealed only
the justice of God, it could have no power
to save; and the thing revealed is said to be
a thing of faith, and offered to faith, and
this could not be said of the justice of
Q. 7. Does the word righteousness here
signify the clemency or mercy of God ? A.
No; because *this word is not used to desig
nate the mercy of God.
Q. 8. Does the phrase, the righteousness
of . God, mean " God's method of justifica
tion " ? A. No; because the word righteous
ness never means " method of justificatioti,"
either in the Greek or English language.
Q. 9. Is there any other reason tending
to show that righteousness does not mean
" method of justification" ? A. There is;
for the righteousness of God is said to be
come the possession of man when he be
lieves, and it would not be proper to say,
that the believer has a " method of justifi
cation" which he obtained from God by
faith. God's " method of justification" is
his own,.and he never transfers it to man.
Q. 10. Are there any Scriptures which
teach that the righteousness of God is trans
ferred to men? A. There are; Rom. iii : 22;
"Even the righteousness of God, which is by
faith of Jesus Christ,'unto all, and upon all
them that believe." Here it is said that the
righteousness of God is offered unto all, and
is actually bestowed upon all them that be
lieve ; so that it is transferred from God to
man ; and hence it is not a "method of justifi
cation." And also in Phil. iii : 9., the same
is taught; "I desire to win Christ and be
found in him, not having mine own right
eousnesss which is of tbe law, but that
which is by the faith of Christ, even .the
righteousness which is of God by faith."
Here we are taught that the man who is' in
Christ by faith, has a righteousness which is
not his own, but which is from God; and
evidently what he obtains from God, is not
a "method of justification," but righteous
ness. God keeps his method to himself,
and acts according to it; he never transfers
it to man.
Q. 11. But is it not true, that God's
"method of justification" is revealed in
the Gospel? A. Most undoubtedly it is,
but that is not the truth stated in this
Q. 12. What then is this righteousness
of God, which is revealed in the Gospel to
be of faith, and which makes the Gospel the
power of God unto salvation ? A. It is,
most obViously, that which sinful man needs,
in order to salvation.
Q. 13. What does sinful man need?
A. He'needs just righteousness, and nothing
Q. 14. What is rightemisness ? A. It
is conformity to the Divine law.
Q. 15. What is conformity to the Di
vine'law ? A. It is that innocence ' and
ness which the law requires.
Q. 16. When a man is innocent and
holy, has he righteousness ? A. He cer
tainly has, for he has all the law of God re
Q. 17. What is it to be innocent f
A. It is to be free from sin's guilt, or
condemnation—to be in a justified state.
Q. 18. What is it to be &k g' A. It is
tube free from sin's defilement, and-to have
a holy nature.
Q. 19. Does the righteousness of God
afford to man both innocence and holiz.z.s?
TE E PRESBYTERIAN AN N 14,11, AND AD V OVATE•
A. It does, for it both justifies and sanc
Q. 20. Why is it called the righteous
ness of God ? A. Because God provides
it, and bestows it on every one that be
Q. 21. How does God provide it ? A.
By the mission and work of his Son and
Q 22. In what manner do the Son and
Spirit of God provide this righteousness ?
A. The Son of God provides one part of it,
by his obedience and death; and the Spirit
of God provides another part of it, by his
operations in the heart of the believer.
Q. 23. May it be viewed as consisting
of two parts ? A. It may, for it is a justi
fying righteousness, and a sanctifying right
Q. 24. Has each part its own Divine
Author ? A. It has, for the Son of God
provides the part which justifies, and the
Spirit of God provides the part which sanc
Q. 25. How is the believer put in pos
session of these two parts ? A. The part
which Christ provides is imputed to him,
and the part which the spirit provides
is imparted to him.
Q. 26 Wbat is it to impute Christ's
righteousness to a believer A. It is to
Set it down to his account, and to regard
and take him as righteous for its sake.
Q. 27. What is it to .impart the Spirit's
righteousness to a believer ? A. It is to
work it in his nature, by transforming him
into the holy image of God.
Q. 28. When is Christ's 'righteousness
imputed to a believer? A. As soon RS he
has faith'in Christ.
Q. 29. When s the Spirit's righteous-
Hess imparted to a believer. A. From the
time of regeneration to the day of his
Q. 30. IN hen is a believer justified ?
A. As soon as Christ's righteousness is im
puted to him.
Q. 31. When is a believer completely
sanctified ? A. When the Spirit's work has
prepared him for glory.
Q. 32. Are these two parts of God's
righteousness ever separated in the case of
any man ? A. No, never; where God be
stows the one he always bestows the other;
where he justifies he always sanctifies ; for
when a man by faith receives the righteous
ness of God, he receives it entire, and not
merely a part of it.
Q. 33. Can any one enter heaven with
out being a partaken of this ri9hteousness of
God P No; not one can ever enter there
Q. 34. What is required of man in
order that be may obtain the righteousness
of God ? He is required to believe in Jesus
Q. 35. , What is the meanino• 6 of the
words, from • faith. to faith A. They are
descriptive of the righteousness of God, and
mean that it is by or of faith, and also to
faith; thus, For therein the righteousness
of God is revealed to be by faith, or of
faith, and revealed to faith, that is, in
order to be believed; it is a righteousness of
faith, and not of works,. and is to be received
only -by faith. AS it is written, The just
shall live by faith.
Q: 36. What two endi are answered
by the Gospel-revelation of God's righteous
ness ? A. One. is,' it reveals it to be a
righteoneness of faith; and another is, it
reveals it ; in order to be believed or trust
ed in ; both the nature of this righteous
ness, and the design of its revelation, are
made known in the Gospel. And this we
understand as the meaning of the words,
from faith to faith. Compare Gal. iii : 22,
But the-'Sdtipture bath . concluded all
under sin; that the promise by faith of
Jesus Christ might be given to them that
believe. But before faith came we were
kept under the law, shut up unto the faith
which should afterwards be revealed.
Q. 37. When the Apostle quotes from.
Hab. ii : 4, the words, " The just shall live
by faith," does he intend only to illustrate,
or to prove the doctrine taught ? A. He
intends to prove it, and assumes that the
same doctrine is contained in the Old Tes
tament, though not revealed in the same full
and clear manner as in the Gospel.
Q. 38. What is the meaning of this oft
recurring phrase, as it is written ? A. It is
the common form of _reference in the New,
to the Old Testament Scriptures.
Verse 18. For the wrath of God is revealed from
heaven, against all ungodliness and unright
eousness of men, who hold the truth in un
Q. 1. What is the connexion between
this verse and the one preceding? A:. It
points out the necessity of God's righteous
ness, in order to man's salvation.
Q. 2. How is this necessity apparent ?
A. Because the wrath of God is revealed
against all sin. '
Q. 3. How is this a reason why man
must be saved through the righteousness of
God ? A. It shows that man is exposed to
God's wrath, and hence, no help for him but
in this righteousness.
Q. 4. Is it assumed that all men are
unrighteous ? It is ; and the proof of
this assumption we have from here down to
the 20th verse of the 3d chapter.
Q. 5. Is the wrath of God anything like
this angry passion in man ? A. No ; it is
his calm and undisturbed purpose to punish
Q. 6. Why is anger ascribed " to God, if
he never felt the angry passion which man
feels ? A. It is speaking of God after the
manner of men. 'Because God - deals 'With'
the,evil of sin, as 'an angry man 'deals - with
what makes him angry ; therefore he is said
to be angry.
Q. 5. - What is the meaning of revealed
from heaven ? A. That it is clear and mani
fest, and supposed to come from God's dwell
Q. 8. How is this wrath revealed ? A.
In the consciences of men, because there is
a universal conviction that God is ungry
with sin, and determines to punish it. It is
revealed, too, in God's dealings with men;
for instance, in driving Adam from Paradise;
in drowning the world with a flood; in de
stroying the cities of the plain with fire from
heaven ; in all the evils that befall the race
of man ; and especially in the sufferings
which God laid upon his own Son,.when he
came to put away sin by the sacrifice of
Q. 9. Is there any difference between
ungodliness and unrighteousness ? A. Un
godliness may be viewed as impiety, and
unrighteousness as immorality.
Q. 10. What is impiety, and what is
immorality? A. _lmpiety is the want of
proper feelings toward God, and immorality
outward acts of disobedience; the one des
ignates the state. of the heart, and the other
the conduct of the life.
Q. it May there not be a kind of
morality where there is no piety ? A. There
may ; a man may have an outward, decent
deportment, while he has no right feelings
Q. 12. Why is the clause, who hold the
truth in unrighteousness, added ? A. It
is descriptive of those against whom the
wrath of God is revealed, and is designed to
show 'that they are not punished unjustly;
because they sin, not in ignorance, bat hav-
ing a knowledge of the nature of their
Q. 13. What is meant by holding the
truth in unrighteousuess ? Alt means that
they have the truth, and unrighteousness
Q 14. What is meant by the truth, here?
A. Such a knowledge of God as renders
men inexcusable if they sin against him.
Q. 15. Have the Heathen, or the Gen
tiles, this knowledge ? A. They have, as is
shown in the 19th and 20th verses.
Verse 19. Because that which may be known of
God is manifeit in them ; for God bath shown
it unto them.
Q. 1. Do the words, that which may Le
known of God, signify all that it is possible
to know of him ? A. No ; but only so
much knowledge of God as renders men
guilty in disobeying him.
•Q. 2. What is meant by the words, is
manifest in them ? A. They mean, is man
ifest to them, or among them, as explained
in the last clause of the verse.
Verse 20. For the invisible things of him from
the creation of the world are clearly seen, be
ing understood by the things that are made,
even his eternal power and Godhead ; so that
they are without excuse.
Q. 1. What is the nature of this verse
A. It is an explanation of verse 19.
Q. 2. What are meant by the invisible
things of him P A. His eternal power and
Q. 3. What is meant by eternal power ?
A. Power without beginning and without
end; hence, underived power, whieh im
plies that it is almighty.
Q. 4. What'is meant by Godhead? A.
It'meatis Divinity including the attributes
Q. 5. How are the Omnipotence and
Divinity of God clearly seen?. A. They are

Q. 6. What things are these? The
heavens and the earth visible to man.

The Rev. J. C. Fletcher recently read
an interesting paper on " Brazil and the
Brazilians," before the New York Historical
Society. Mr. Fletcher,was for several years
a resident of that country. Brazil, he says,
possesses wonderful fertility and salubrity,
which he attributes to the general elevation
of the country and the c4Sfant trade s winds
and bear treasures of clouds from the ocean,
which; descend in rains that :invigorate veg
itation. 'The' country 110 F it:intense forests,
garlanded with graceful wild‘vines and orch
idaceous plants, all bearlog the most briliant
flowers upon their branches. The Victoria
Regia blooms on the waters of the Amazon
affluents, and the graceful palm lifts itself
everywhere, imparting to the tropical land
scape a very peculiar feature. Brazil; it is
well known; is a diamond producing country,
although its most prolific yield was in the eight
years proceeding 1822—the era of Brazilian
independence. In that time three and a
half millions pounds sterling was obtained by
the sales of the sparkling gem. It is rich,
also, in other minerals, and in agricultural
products. The single article of coffee for ,
the fiscal year 1854-5, amounted to more
than twenty-five millions of dollars.
The climate is not so hot as in the Summer
with us, the average heat within the tropic
of Capricorn being seventy-two 'dea e' rees.
The poisonous reptiles and the yellowfever
have been greatly exaggerated; the latter has
now left Brazil. Mr. Fleteher'showed that
the aborigines were among the finest who in
habited the New World, and proved that the
earliest voyagers' on the Amazon really be- .
lieved that they had seen a nation of female
warriors; for among the wild tribes found
among the upper tributaries of that river to
this day, the men wearrtheir hair long, par
ted in the middle, braided behind, and done
up with a comb. They pluck out their
beard, wear necklaces and bracelets, and
with their shields over their breasts, they
present exactly the appearance of women.
According to Mr. Fletcher, the first Pro
testant colony in the New World was plant
ed under the auspices of the French Admi-.
ral Coligni, upon an island in the bay of the'.
ltio Janeiro, in 1555. . The church at Ge
neva took great interest in the enterprise; but
through the treachery of its leader and the
victories of the Portuguese it was completely
broken up. The Hollanders occupied a por
tion of the Northern coast for thirty years,
but were overpowered by the Portuguese.
Some of them thereupon came to New York.
The growth of Brazil may be dated from
1808, when King John IV., driven from
Portugal by the French, took up his abode
in this the greatest - colony of his subjects,
and opened.its ports to the commerce of the
world, and introduced other reforms.
The government of Brazil is a constitu
tional monarchy, and nowhere in the world
are religious toleration and the liberty of the
individual better secured, unless in our own
country. There is an imperial Parliament,
Senators being-elected for life, and represen
tatives for four years, (by electors. )
There are twenty provinces, and twenty pro
vincial legislatures. Brazil is fred from rev
olutions, her commerce is constantly increas
ing, and slavery will be done away with in
course of tithe. She. has six lines of steam
ers connecting with. Europe, but none .with
the United States, although: we sell to her
five millions of dollars worth annually, and
purchase nineteen millions. The Emperor
Don Pedro 11., is an enlightened and able
monarch, familiar not only with the litera
ture of Europe, but of the United States, and
is a man of great scientific attainments.

./QTUTTERING AND STAMMERIN G
CURED, Without Yaill or Surgical Operation.
The readers of the Banner and Adia - cate will recollect I
published a notice last Winter, beaded "The Last Dal/ to
Stuttering and Stammering Persona," in which 'announced
was the only chance they would ever have of getting cured,
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. Sines the 10th, '1 have personally
consulted forty, and sent the cure by mail to sixty indi
viduals. in every instance perfect satisfaction has been
rendered. In justice to all who are so unfortunate as to
stutter or at.mmer yet. I have thought proper to give
another opportunity of being cured, and therefore would
respectfully request them to send me $2O, (which Is less
than my usual fee,) and I will immediately send them my
chre. By so doing they save the expense of traveling.. I
am a responsible man, and if my cure is not effectual - 1 will
agree to refund the money. Recollect. this cure never fails.
Address Dr. WYCKOFF, Box 746, Pittsburgh Post Office.
There ass 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, anti 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 possessidn of ray system, and Cannot cure,'
T hrough ; untiring perseverance, I arrested two of th em,
and others will sooner or later share the same fate. This
care for 'Stuttering or Stammering hi 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
Uy refe&ences 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 diEerent parts of the conntry.
This cure for Stuttering and Stammering is performed in'
less than one hour. There is no pain or surgical operation
The beauty of all Wets, it will cure children of Bin, 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 Start
ter, by application of the cure.
It was formerly customary to announce, that no pay
would be required unless a perfect cure wasperformed.
That was done to show the people,tbere 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.
