Tan INSPIRATION OF HOLY SCRIPTURE; its Na
ture and Proof. Eight Discourses preached be
fore the University of Dublin. By William
Lee, M. A., Fellow and Tutor of Trinity Col
lege. Bvo., pp. 478. New York: Robert Car
ter et Bros., 530 Broadway. 1857.
This book is a prodigy of learning. The wits
of Oxford and Cambridge, in the last century,
need playfully, in allusion to the comparatively
few volumes which issued from the Fellows and
graduates of the Dublin University, to designate
"Old Trinity" as the ,silent sister. And • yet,
while this soubriquet was applied to the Irish
University, ita learned men, such as Hales, Ma
gee, Leland, Graves, and othere, were sending
forth works of permanent value, which demon
sirated the • solid character of the literature
which existed in that Institution. It is true, there
never was such a tendency displayed in Dublin
to multiply editions of the Greek Classics, or of
Text hooka - in piire mathematics, as prevailed in
Oxford and Cambridge. But as soon as the Gov
ernment of Great Britain allowed the students of
all the Universities to compete for honors, in view
Of employment in India, and in the civil service,
the superiority of the training in Dublin becaine
apparent. In sporting language, the , students
from Oxford and Cambridge were left far behind,
and the Scotch, with all their metaphysics, were
no where. So striking was the difference, that
most urgent steps have been insisted on for a- re
form of Scottish University education.
As we have already said, this book is a prodigy
of learning. The author is evidently as familiar
with Germ= literature, with the works of the
Greek and Latin Fathers, and the Jewish writers
whose comments have ;any connexion with the
Bible, as most Divines are with the English copy
of the New Testament.• The cause of Divine
truth is exposed to assaults from two opposite
directions; namely, the attacks of openly avowed
enemies, and the theories of professed friends.
There is much greater danger to be apprehended
from the latter than the former.
The work before us is pervaded by afire, healthy
character. The author is quite opposed to the•
Neology of the German School, and to the modi
fied form of it which Morrell has given to the
public in his Philosophy of Religion, and which
he adopted from Schleiermaoher. On the other
hand, he repudiates the " Dynamic " theory of
Inspiration—a, theory which reduces the writers
to the position of mere machines, or instruments.
He distinguishes between Revelation and Inspira
" By Revelation, I understand a direct commu
nication from God to man, either of such knowl
edge as man could not, of himself, attain to, be
cause its subject matter transcends human sa
gacity or human reason, (such, for example, were
the prophetical announcements of the future, and
the peculiar doctrines of Christianity,) or which
(although it might have been attained in the or
dinary way,) was not, in point of fact, from
whatever cause, known to the person who re
ceived the Revelation. By Inspiration, on the
other hand, 'I understand that actuating energy
of the Holy Spirit, in whatever degree or man
ner it may have been exercised, guided by which
the human agents chosen by God have officially
proclaimed his will by word of mouth, or have
oommitted to writing the several portions of the
Bible." He proceeds to consider the Dynamical
theory, which' makes the writer merely the pen,
not the penman of the Spirit, and he proposes, as
the correct Tien, the proposition that the Bible
consists of a Divine and a human' element.
It is Divine, as containing the will of God
as made known by the Holy Spirit. It is
human, inasmuch al 'John, Peter, Paul, and all
the writers of Holy Scripture, wrote in the exer
cise of their peculiar characteristics, no violence
having been done to their nature by the commu
nication or energy of the Holy Ghost. It is im
possible to do justice to a work so profound and
elaborate, either in a few sentences or by a few
quotations. Without• committing ourselves to
every position of the erudite author, we have no
hesitation in saying , that it is one of the moat
elaborate works of the age, and deserves a
prominent place in the library of every Theolo
gian, and on the table of every literary and well

The author of this rambling, sketchy book, has
evidently rambled all over the Insion,; and he
seems at home in Paris, and among continental
scenes. The odd title referito the gilding on the
surface of society, under which he professes to
look. He has a thorough contempt for much
that exists in European continental countries, and
his opinions are certainly expressed in ,a manner
that is sul generic. We may add that we have
been greatly pleased with his utterances on the
value of the Christian Sabbath, arid an the rea
sons which he urges why the British Parliament
should keep the British Museum, and other sueh
places, closed on the Lord's day. His experiences
of Paris, and of the quiet village homes of New
England, enable him to speak with authority on

Thin unique productions, bearing the
stamp of a tremote antiquity, have already
attracted the attention of the literary world,
and bid fair to cast into the shade the sub-
Ernest efforts, of modern genius. They claim
consideration on several accounts. They
illustrate •subjects which had been involved
in deep obscurity, and solve interesting prob
lems which had long puzzled the scientific
world, ' They shed abundant light upon His
tory, GeOgraphy, Moral. Science, Jurispru
dence, Chronology, Ethnology, and other
branches of learning. Of their authentici
ty and credibility, a reasonable doubt no lon
ger exists. The authors, though belonging
to different ages, betray a singular unity of
design, and their- works constitute -a harmo
nious whole. The writer of this article has;
for some years, made them his constant study;
and, in site of the difficulties pertaining to
languages which have ceased to be spoken
by many, he flatters himself that he has so
tar succeeded -as to be able to give an intel
ligent account of the contents. He does
not, indeed, hope to imitate the- beauty and
sublimity of the originals ' but ventures to
offer a brief outline of the history in his own
EPITOME OP THE HISTORY.
Abhi Hath was the sovereign of a hun
dred millions of happy subject& . Long bad
he reigned in Shemai Shemim, a .royal city
built on a lofty eminence, and in
splendor, far surpassing all that is related of
Babylon or. Nineveh. Associated with him
as partners in the throne, were Sar Sha
lom, his Son, and Ruahh, his Secretary.
These august personages, though distinguish
ed from each other in respectof official char
acter and the order of precedence, were so
much the same in other respects, that they
were commonly regarded as one. They
. with paternal affection their willing
subjects, and received from them their cheer
ful homage of reverence and love.
In a single instance the peace of Shemai
Shemim was interrupted. A fearful rebel
lion arose, beaded, by an officer of the Court,
named Abadoon, whose inordinate ambition
would brook no superior. He drew after
him a great number of adherents, and boldly
aspired to the throne. He, and his follow
ers, were arrested and imprisoned in the drea
ry castle of Dalphon, in a remote part of the
empire, there to await their final sentence.
A NEW COLONY PLANTED.
Soon after this event, a new colony was es
tablished in Huldab, a remote island situated
in the midst of the ocean: This work was
superintended in person by Sar Shalom, who
provided everything necessary for the com
fort of the new inhabitants. From first to
last he showed the deepest interest in all the
affairs" of the little colony.
The officers of the Court and• chief citi
zens of the metropolis were now summoned
to the great audience-chamber, where the
Sovereign appeared;seated on a resplendent
throne, arrayed in robes of peerless majesty.
All, with one consent, prostrated themselves
before the throne in token of profound rev
erence and submission. A fixed attention
being secured, Abhi Hath addressed them as
" You know, my loving subjects, that we
are accustomed, for your gratification and
instruction, to make known to you our pur-
Roses in reference to important events occur
ring in our empire. In virtue of that pre
science, by which we are enabled to pene
trate the depths of futurity, we have now to
announce a most melancholy'event as about
to transpire. The new colony of Hnldah,
on which we have lavished so much kindness,
is soon to become the theatre of another
daring rebellion against the throne. • What,
in your judgment, will the ungrateful rebels
"Instant death," was the unanimous re
".But," continued the King, "the rebel
lion will be universal throughout the island.
Not an individual will be exempt; and we
d. net wish to destroy the whole race. That,
indeed, is what they all will richly deserve.
Bat we purpose to save some of them. And
yet, to pardon any, without an adequate sat
isfaction to injured justice, would be to tar
nish our. character, to diabonor the laws, and
to wink at rebellion in our empire. Are the
wisest of you able so suggest a plan by which
the claims of justice and, the majesty of the
latis can be preserved, while mercy is exten
dad to the guilty ?"
Signs' of wonder'and amazement apPeared
throughout the assembly, and they were
unable to answer a word. Then Sar Shalom
spake as follows :
THE GREAT COMPACT.
"To make justice and mercy harmonize
in the salvation of the guilty, is indeed a
difficult work. But such is my affection for
the-people of the - colony; that I am resolved
to remove every obstacle to its accomplish
ment. Cheerfully have I engaged to suffer
in the place of the rebels to such an extent
as shall satisfy all the demands of justice
in their behalf. Proclamation may then
be issued, signifying that all who will ac
cept of our pardon, and return to their allegi
ence, shall be released from condemnation and
restored to our favor. But there is another
equally formidable difficulty to be overcome.
The rebels will prove exceedingly obstinate.
Unless some special measure should be adopt
ed to meet the emergency, they will all hold
out in their rebellion, and my blood will be
shed in vain."
Then spake Ruahh, the Secretary, thus:
" To meet this difficulty I am fully pre
pared. All know the extraordinary power I
possess to influence the hearts of those on
whom I lay my hand. In the plenitude of
this power will I visit the rebels, in person,
and persuade many to accept of pardon on
the.terms which it shall be offered. Thus,
I will insure to Sar Shalom, such a number
of the rebels as shall satisfy him for the
travail of his soul."
Then said Abhi Hath : My well-beloved
Son is accepted as the surety, of- the rebels.
His sufferings shall be taken as their suffer- I
ings. Onwhalf of the people of the Likud'

are given him as the reward of his pains;
and Ruahli shall take care that of all thus
given him, none shall be lost. And this is
our firm and abiding compact.
Ruahh then presented to Sar Shalom a
book containing the names of all that were
given him by his Royal Father, and secured
to him, as his appropriate reward.
The assembly was then dismissed, and all
retired from the audience-chamber, greatly
admiring the disinterested affection of Sar
Shalom, and the wisdom, condescension
and mercy of all the three sovereigns.
They also desired to look further into these
A REBELLION IN THE COLONY.
In a short time after, the old rebel,
Abadoon, contrived to escape from his
prison of Dalphon, and passed over to the
Island. He soon succeeded in infusing his
proud, ambitious spirit into the hearts of all
with whom he came in contact, and raised
a universal rebellion. The very children
became infected to such a degree with dis
loyalty. as to heap curseq on the head of
their Sovereign. In the meantime, Sar
Shalom was not an idle spectator of events.
He constructed a medium of communication
with the rebellious province, which, far
surpassing the wonders of the modern tele
graph, conveyed persons, as well as mes
sages, with the rapidity of lightning. In
appearance it resembled a great ladder, the
foot of which rested on the rebellious
island, while its top reached the heights of
Shemai Shemitn. On it the messengers
from the throne were continually ascending
In. due time,
Sar Shalom, laying aside his
royal robes, and assuming the habiliments
of the colonists, appeared among them, pro
claiming peace and pardon. . It was fondly
believed by many that the rebels would be
so much affected by'his exalted dignity and
condescension, that they would instantly
lay down their arms and return to their
duty. Instead of this, they seized him in
their capital city, and subjected him to every
species of indignity and cruelty. Though
he might have obtained from his August
'Father legions of armed Malachim for his
protection; he offered not the slightest re
sistance. Thus he suffered by the hands of
traitors, in the traitors' place. While he
endured the unutterable tortures inflicted on
him, the sun bid his face, and an earth
quake shook the island. His enemies left
him for dead; but in a little while he rose
up, and - soon after returned to. Shemai
Shemim. But befure his departure, he is
sued a new and more full proclamation,
which he committed to the hands of a
chosen few, with orders to publish it
throughout the island. They accordingly
went forth on their errand of mercy, em
ploying every argument and entreaty to in
duce their fellow-citizens to be reconciled to
the lawful government. All their efforts
were unavailing as long as Ruahh was ab
sent. The rebels exclaimed, "Our cause
is just, and we will die in its defense."
But when, in answer to their petitions for
warded to the royal palace, Ruahh appeartd,
their hearts were encouraged, and the peo
ple passed over from the standard of Aba
doon to' that of Stir Shalom, by hundreds
and thousands. The glad news was trans
mitted to Shemai Shemim, and created new
joy among its happy inhabitants.
final Shalom made arrangements for the
final removal of all his faithful friends to
dwell with himself, in the royal city, in a
splendid and capacious palace, erected for
that purpose before the foundation of the
colony. The rest, who persisted to the last
in rejecting the overtures of pardon, were
ultimately consigned to the dreary abodes
of Dalphon, originally prepared for the old
LATER NEWS :FROM THE COLONY
Thus far we have drawn upon the Manu
scripts before mentioned. From more re
cent intelligence, we learn that serious di
visions arose among the professed friends
of Sar Shalom. There was a large party
who undertook to satisfy him by a round of
pompous ceremonies, though in their hearts
they served Abadoon, who still held many
strong fortresses in the island.. And, where
es, Sar Shalom had ordered that all his ser
vants should be sealed in their foreheads,
and that their children (because he loved
them,) should receive the same seal, and be
trained up for him, a party arose who con=
tended that the adults should be sealed all
over, and that the children should be east
out among the servants of Abadoon. Again :
as in the proclamations made by the Soy
weign, frequent references were made to
the solemn compact between them, and of
the gift of Abhi Bath to his Son, before
the rebellion began, there were many who
did not conceal their disrelish for those
parts of the royal edicts, and sought to mod
ify or explain them away. The following
dialogue will illustrate the sentiments of this
Gadalt.-1" do not like that idea, that we
might all have been justly punishei without
Jasher.—Then you must regard the
sufferings of Sar Shalom in our behalf, and
the consequent offer of pardon, as mere acts
of justice done uS, for which no thanks are
G.—But that is a horrid idea, that a part
of the people of this island were given to
Sar Shalom, and made sure to him.
J.—Had it not been for that gracious
provision all would have persisted in rebel
lion, and one have been saved. You
might as' well say, it is horrid that Sar
Shalom should t ,get any reward.
the worst of. all is, that it Was
left to the Sovereigns to decide how many
of us should be saved.
J.—And who is so well qualified to de
termine that question,? Had it been left to
chance, or to Abadoon, or even to yourself,
think you that the decision would have been
wiser and better for the empire ?
G.—Ah, but the whole matter was de
cided on from the foundation of the colony.
j—But could the Sovereigns have made
a better decision if they had waited till
G.—lt seems, too, that we rebels cannot
turn without the assistance of Ruahh,
That I do not like.
J.--That is only a proof of the deep de
pravity of rebels. None will turn without
Ruahh. But he is promised to all who pe
tition for him.
G.—To be frank, I do not like the idea
of being saved by sovereign, unmerited
J.—Then you cannot be saved at all.
Your lofty, independent spirit must be hum
bled. That 'pride and self-sufficiency, in
fused into you by the old rebel, must be
rooted out. Seek the influence of a better
Spirit. Give yourself cheerfully, heartily,
unreservedly to Sar Shalom, and then you
may, rejoice in the evidence that your name
is written in the Book of Life.
For the Presbyterian Banner and Advocate:
The Princeton Review, and Neglect of
We read with interest the article on the
"Neglect of Infant Baptism," in the last
number of the Princeton, Review. We
consider the suggestions of the reviewer
timely, and his remarks and conclusions
generally judicious ; but we cannot adopt
the result at which be arrives, as to the extent
of the neglect of infant baptism, as correct.
After an elaborate array of statistics; and
after objecting to 12.5 communicants for
each child baptized per year, the ratio given
by the New York Observer, and of 10 by
the editor of the Presbyterian Banner and
Advocate, he adopts the ratio of one infant
baptism each year to every six communi
cants. He then adds, " Thus have more
than two-thirds of the children of the
Church been ' cut off' from the people of
God, by their parents' sinful neglect, and
by the Church's silentacquiescence therein."
it is said that figures will not lie. This say
ing, however, is true only when they are
used to arrive at necessary conclusions from
correct data. We do not admit the data of
the reviewer as axiomatic; we cannot, there
fore, give credence to the result at which he
First, the reviewer has 'not taken:into ac
count the greater ratio of increase of the
Church in the' earlier than in the later years
of hii statistics. From 1807 to 1820, a
period of 14 years, the average of members
to each baptism is 6.6 ; and in the same
period of years, from ;1843 to 1856, the
ratio, it is true, is only one
,to 18.6 But
the ratio of increase of communicants in the
first period, is a little over 4 fold, while in
the second it is,not quite 1.5. Every one
acquainted with the order of PedobaPtist
Churches; knows that in seasons of revival
and rapid ,increase from' the world, whole
families of children -will be baptized at once,
on the profession. of one or both of the
parents. The ; statistics "of the Synod of
Pittoburgh confirm this statement. From
the Minutes of 1807, the first year in which
we, have the number of communicants, and
of infant baptisms . , reported, we have taken
four of the largest pastoral charges,. (named
by Dr. Smith,) of the old Presbytery of
Redstone, and:the total of communicants is
827, and of baptisms 70, or one to 11.8;
and also four of the, largest of the new Pres
bytery of Erie,• and the totals, 594 and . l37,
or one to 4.3 ; yet it is more than probable
that McMillan, Patterson, Anderson, and
Woods were, as faithful as their younger
brethren. If we turn to the -Minutes of
1810, we find that the Old Redstone Pres
bytery, with some new territory, reports 939
communicants, .and 137 baptisms, or one to
7; while the newly organized Presbytery of
Lancaster reports 286 communicants,. and
146 baptisms, crone to 2; yet, will any one
affirm that " Old Red.stone was less faith
ful than Lancaster? But, whilst the ratio
of deerease, or the rapidity of advance of
the Presbyterian Church, is almost the same
as that of infants baptized to communicants;
and whilst the same is. Armed, by a com
parison of older and newer territory in the
Synod of Pittsburgh almost fifty years ago,
yet we do not assert that the truth is reached
by the proportion ; for, even admitting that
we have full and correct statistics, other
things, besides increase from the world, may
affect the ratio of baptisms to the number
Again; the reviewer has neither noticed,
nor taken into his calculations, a;gradual
change in the practice of some sections of
the Church, in regard to infant baptism.
Now, we believe generally, only members in
full communion are allowed to have 'their
children baptized. , At an earlier period of
the history of our Church, some ministers
acted differently. In two fields of labor in
two Synods, we have found gray-headed
persons, who said they were baptized in in
-fancy by their pastors, though their parents
were never communing members of the
Church. Quite .a number of times have we
been requested by parents of Presbyterian
predilection, to have their children baptized,
though they ware not communicants; and
when we refuse; we were told that " father
such a one used to baptize such, children."
Recently, in family visitation, we found ex
amples of such baptisms of later date, as.
the minister named is still alive, though
very aged., We know neither the extent of
this practice, nor the extent of the change
in the direction of our Standards. The
practice, however, we feel satisfied, to some
extent, accounts for the large number of
baptisms reported in the earlier statistics of
the Presbyterian Church. ,
.Moreover, we may see the wildness of the
conclusions of the reviewer, by the probable
percentage of deaths to communicants. By
a little attention to statistics, each pastor
may arrive. approximately at the average life
of the communicants in his charge. If
there are 4 deaths •annually in a church
numbering 160, the average life is 40 years;
if 6to 180, the life is 30 years. Our own
observation .would lead us to'name 35 years
as the average"life of persons after they be
come communing members of, the church.
Apply this principle of computation to the
whole , Church for the last 10 years, and it
gives an average life of 40 year& Addi
tions on certificate indicate change from
church to church ; we may, therefore, take
those received on examination as the in
crease. This; for the last 10 years, is 107,-
029. The total increase in this period, is
54,302. The difference will be the deaths,
which is 5,273 annually. The average num
ber of cominunicants during this period, is
211,010, which, divided by the annual
deaths, gives 40, 'as stated above, for the
avenge yeas' of the life of communicants.
Many church-members 'have no children;
and some ehildren die before the mother
can appear ,with• them in the church for
baptism ; as biptiorns under 7 days old, as
with the family of John Chalmers," of
Scotland, referred. to by the Reviewer, are
not;encouraged by our Directory.—See Ch.
vii : Sec. 5. We,.ma,y, therefore name as a.
probable estimate, 5 children for each 2
communicants. Now divide 233,755, the
total for 1856, by AO, and multiply the
quotient by 2.5, and it gives 14,610 children
born in 1856, to professing. parents in, the
Presbyterian Church, and which lived to an
age when there is an opportunity to receive
baptism. This hi ia ratio.of one child yearly
to every 16 communicants,, and nearly the
same as the reporting churches of the Pres
byteryr of Obio, which, is a part of that por
tion of our Church, quaintly styled " the
back bone of Presbyterianism. '
To test this still farther, we wrote down
the names of three as faithful ministers as
we could think of, among our acquaintances,
in three different Synods. We then turned
to the Assembly's Minutes for the last three
years, and the result was 14 communicants
for each' yearly baptism. The above esti
mate, of 14,610, is 2,689 more than the re
ported baptisms of last year. But a glance
at the statistics of the churches will convince
any one that a part of 'this number; which
is about one-fifth of the whole, may be ac
counted for by defective reports of children
baptized. Some' Sessions keep no register
of baptisms; hence the many blanks of
baptisms opposite to churches, marked as
vacant, or as having Stated Supplies. So
also the order of the Assembly to put down
the total of communicants, from the last re-1
port of non -reporting churches, will effect
the, ratio of the total of baptisms in the
Church to the total of.communicants.
Once more, the Minutes of 1855 show
about an average of two , communicants to
each professing family.. The whole Church
L. N. D
gives nearly three to one; but this larger ra
tio is evidently through defective reports of
families, though 1855 is fuller than any pre
ceding year. This, together with the met
that some pastors reported supporting, as
well as professing families, leads us to be
lieve, that in the present state religion
in the Church, two communicants per family
is a fair estimate. Five souls for each
family is the common average. This gives
for 1856 a total of 116,877 families, and
584,385 persons, of which 350,630 are only
baptized members. If, as before, we count
forty years for an ecclesiastical generation,
14,609 baptisms annually will keep the
Church as large as at, present. But let us
count twenty years as the probable average age
when baptized persons die, cease to be mem
bers of professing families, or conmei them
selves by profession with the Church, and
still it would require only 17,630 baptisms per
year to keep the present total. This num
ber, though larger than the former, is yet
small, compared with 38,959 annual bap
tims, with an average baptized life of nine
years, required by the ration of 1 to 6
named by the Reviewer.
The correctness of an estimate from the
present total of communicants and families
will appear more fully, if we reflect that the
increase of the Presbyterian Church is in
part from those whose parents were never
members, and in part 'from those' baptized
by other denominations, some of which do
not hesitate to baptize the children of all
who make the request, whether they are
communing members or not.
We grant, with the Princeton Review,
that there may be neglect of infant bap
tism, and even growing neglect in some sec
tions of the Church;• and we would delight
to see some of the suggestions of the Re-'
viewer become the law and the practice
of the Presbyterian Church. Yet we can
not but believe that the estimate of neglect
of baptism of infants is greatly too large;.
and that, though unintentionally, there is a
false accusation brought against Pedobap
tist Churches in general, and the Presbyte
rian Church in particular; and the accusa
tion will very likely become eminently slan
derous, when referred to by the enemies of
infant baptism. G. W. S.
With Me Abide.
Abide with me Fast falls the eventide;
The darkness thickens: Lord! with me abide;
When other helpers fail, and comforts flee,
Help of the helpless, 0 abide with me!
Swift to its close ebbs out life's little day;
Earth's joys grow dim, its glories pass away;
Change and decay in all around I see:
0 Thou, who changest not, abide with me!
I fear no foe, with thee at hand to bless ; ,
Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness:
Where is Death's sting ? Where, Grave, thy
I triumph still, if thou abide with me
Reveal thyself before, my closing eyes,
Shine through the, gloom, and point me to the
Heaven's morning breaks, and earth's vain shad
In life, in death, 0 Lord! abide with me

Content and Discontent.
Two little girls went into the fields to
gather flowers. They found buttercups,
dandelions, violets, and many other blossoms.
One of the children was pleased with every
thing, and began to pick such flowers as she
met with. In a little while this girl had
collected quite a bunch of flowers; and
though some of them were not very hand
some, yet altogether they made a beautiful
bouquet. The other girl was more dainty,
and determined to pick only such flowers as
were very beautiful. She disdained 'to
gather the dandelions, for they were so com
mon; and she would not pluck the butter
cups, for they were all of one color, and did
not take her fancy.- Even the blue violets
were not enough for her. Thus the little
pair wandered on through the fields till they
were about to return home. 'By this time
the dainty child, seeing that her sister had
a fine collection of flowers, while she had
none, began to think it best to pick such as
she could get. A Nemesis had come upon
the• fastidious one. She who would only
feed upon 4g nightingale's tongues," was at
last glad to get the smallest crumb.
The flowers became so scarce, that not
even a dandelion, a buttercup, or a violet
was to be found; and the over-fastidious
one had to beg a single dandelion of her
sister, and thus they returned home. On
telling< their story to their mother, she ad
dressed them thus:" My children, let this
little event teach you a useful lesson. Jane
has been the wiser of the two. Content
with such flowers as came in her way, and
not aiming at what was beyond her reach,
she has been successful in her pursuit, and
has brought back a beautiful bunch of
flowers. But Laura, who could not stop to
pick up buttercups and dandelions, because
she wanted something more beautiful than
could be found, collecting nothing from the
field, was finally obliged to beg , a dan
delion from her sister. Thus it will always
happen, my children, in passing through life.
If' you are content with simple pleasures and
'innocent enjoyments, such as are scattered
freely along your path, you will, day by day,
- gather enough to make 'you contented and
happy. Seek not, then, for costly enjoy
ments or extravagant pleasures; be indus
trious in gathering those which are lawful,
and which are adapted to your situation.
In this way you will cultivate a contented
spirit, and secure your own peace. If, on
the other hand, you disdain enjoyments that
are suited to your taste and capacity, you,
will be hard to please, and perpetual discon
tent will dwell in your bosom. Thus you
will see that one course will result in some
thing better than riches, while the other will
bring evils that are worse than poverty."--
Ladies' Influence on Elder Lads.
There is one thing in school-work which
I wish to press on you; and that is, that you
should not confine your work to the girls,
bur bestow it as freely on those who need it
more, and who (paradoxical as it may seem,)
will respond to it more deeply and freely
theboys. I am not going to enter into the
reasons why. I only entreat you to believe
me, that by helping to educate the boys or
even (when old enough,) by taking ,a class
(as I have done with admirable effect,) of
grown up, lads, you may influence, forever
not only the happiness of your pupils, but
of the girls whom theiwill hereafter marry.
It will be a locen to your own sex, as well as
to ours, to teach them courtesy, self-restraint
reverence for physical weakness, admit. flow
of tenderness and genilness; and it is (Jae
which only a lady can bestow. Only by
being accustomed in youth to converse with
ladies, will the boy learn to treat hereafter
his sweetheart or his wife like a gentleman.
There is a latent chivalry, doubt it not, in
the heart of every untutored clod; if it dies
out in him (as it too often does,) it were
better for him, I often think, if he'had never
been born; but the only talisman which
will keep it alive, much more develope it
into its fullness, is friendly and revering in
tercourse with women of higher rank than
himself.—Rev. Charles Kingsley.
Mrs. A— was a church-member; she
thought herself exceedingly benevolent.
She gave to almost every cause. We will
see how benevolent she was. She gave six
dollars for a pocket-handkerchief, and havio g
a dollar left after the purchase, dropped it
in the box for "Foreign Miasions.' She
gave forty dollars for a crape shawl, and two
dollars the same day to "Domestic Missions"
—she gave ten dollars for a pair of ear
rings, and a quarter of a dollar to the
"Tract Society "—three hundred dollars
she expended on a. fashionable party, when
her daughter Amelia" came out," and fifty
dollars went toward repairing the church,
and paying the - pastor. Her elegant cut
veivet hat cost fifteen dollars—she paid fifty
cents about the same time toward a new
Sabbath School library. She gave three
dollars; for Eliza Ann's senseless •wax doll,
and one dollar toward educating a young im
mortal in Africa. Which weighed the
heaviest in her heart, Christ or the fashion
able world ? Will God be satisfied with the
driblets which chance to remain in the Chris
tian'spurse after every elegant taste has
been gratified, and that, too, when a heathen
world is perishing ?
Prudence in Dress.
Flannel or merino,, all wool, under-gar
ments, except that in the article of drawers
they may preferentially use linsey-woolsey,
or Canton flannel, and these should be made
tight at the ankles. No HOOPS !—No
FUNNEL SLEEVES for the cold air to rush
up to the arm-pits, and chill the chest
The whole of the underclothes, also, as
well as the dress, should be made, to cover
the shoulder and collar-bones, close around
the throat. By this means you will be
prevented from throwing additional weight
upon the shoulders, in the shape of extra
shawls and cloaks, and thus diminish the
labor of breathing. Also cover the top of
the head. Beware of catarrh and neural
gia !—Medical Specialist:
