a sweet and melting time. At the table of
their lord, Christians prayed with tears,

The Xissions in India. -
To' the dilivisters, Elders and Members of
the Presbyterian Church:
DEAR BRETHREN ;---1 he Executive Com
mittee have given their anxious considera
tion to the state of the Mrs ions in India!
And they believe the time has now corire
for asking the special attention of the
churches to this subject.
The great ealtittlitieti which have fallen
upon these Missions are well known. The
large destruction of property at several era.
Lions, and the lamentable loss , of life, are
eveots of deep affliction. It is with great
sorrow of heart that the Committee have to
speak of Rev, Messrs. John E. Freeman,
David R. Campbell, Albert O. Johnson,
and B,obert McMullin, their wives, and two
children of and Mrs. Campbell, as hav
ing fallen victims to the malignant passions
of the S, pay leaders. They were men and
women of tried worth and devotedmas in
the this•ionery work. Their removal by the
band of violence from this work, is a pain
ful mystery of the all•wise providence of
While mourning over these bereavements,
and sympathizing with the missionaries and
native brethren whose lives were spared,
but who have been called to pass through
times of great peril and suffering, the Com
mittee would, nevertheless recognize with
gratitude to God, that the late disturbances
have not beau permitted to elm() or narrow
the field of missionary labor among the Hin
doos. 'There is reason to expect shortly a
settled state of public affairs, and thereafter
a wider and more effectual door of entrance
to the people than at any former period.
Mohammedan bigotry will be under: re
straint; the pride hi high caste Hindoos
will be under rebuke; and the powerful in
finance of the Government, continued in
the hands of an enlightened Protestant na•
tion for the benefit. of the natives of India,
will hen'oefurth be found arrayed on all
proper occasions on the side of Christianity.
In the view of these things, the duty of
the ()bunch is plain, it is to go forward in
the work of missions among the Hindoos;
and to do this with faith in God, humility,
compassion for lost souls, and hope of sue.
vess—all chastened and strengthened by the
trials, the grace vouchsafed in time of need,
and the wonderful providences of the last
The Committee have given earnest con
sideration to the question, What should he,
done for the Missions of our Church in In
die as they now stand ? In some respects
it would seem to be our duty, in view of the
field more than ever white unto harvest, to
aim at an immediate increase of our miss
ionary force in that country. Without de
eidiug as to this, the Committee are clearly
of the opinion that the broken ranks of the
missionaries should be filled up as soon as
possible, and that immediate mesSures
should be taken to reoccupy most of the
stations. Prior men are required to take
the places of the lamented brethren who
have been called away. And a considerable
supply of funds is also required to re-estab
lish several of the stations. It is not pro•
posed to replace at once all the heavy losses
incurred. The station at Lodiaria will be,
restored with the funds already- received
from the authorities, by an assessment on
the city; at several other stations, where no
provision of this kind has been made, there
are churches, chapels, school houses, dwell
ing houses, and the printing press, and' the
depository of the Scriptures and Tracts at
Allababad, to be •replaced. To restore all
these to tbe condition in which they stood
before the late outbreaks, will require proba
bly about $lOO.OOO. It must be a gradual
work to replace ail these. But to furnish
new outfits to a number of the missionaries
in India; to extend a limited assistance to
some of the native converts, who have been
made dependent for the time being on their
Christian brethren, even for the necessaries •
of life; to build or restore at heavy, cost
eleven dwelling houses; and to provide for
the outfit, voyage, and inland journey of
four new families of missionaries, will re,-
quire, as the Committee believe, a sum not
less than $BO,OOO. All of this, it Ingot be
borne in mind, will be in addition to the
current ( r ordinary expenditures Of the
Board; no part of this sum was, or could
have been, included in the Estimates for
these Missions, which were sanctioned by'
the Committee nearly a year ago. All of
this sum, it should be further stated, ought
to be placed in the Treasury of the Board
without much delay; and a considerable
part of it is called for at the present time.
The Committee have never been partial
to the method of making special appeals to
the churches, for tbe means of carrying, for.
ward the missionary work. But the present
is no ordinary case; indeed, it is marked by
signs of deep and solemn interest such as
seldom claim the attention of the people of

and a portion of Scripture by the pastor,

Mission Sabbith Schools in Pittsburgh.
Ds: McKissrsy--.Dear :—Fou are already
aware of the• nature of toy work in Pittsburgh.
I need not, therefore, go into particulars in refer.
ence to it. The benefit of Sabbath Mission
Schools in large cities snob as ours, is attracting
the serious attention of Christian ministers and
churches in Great Britain, and in' some of our
large cities such - as Boston and New Yoik, 8113.
Into these Scheele are gathered the children of
the poor, and of snob as have no church connex
ion who have no religious training, and without
suchl institutions . would remain so. Sabbath
Mission Schools are indeed the nurseries of the
Church, both in the domestic and foreign mission
ary fields. • •
Connected with my labors in these cities, is a
Sabbath Mission School, which is three yearsin
operation. Our little school house is every Sab
bath afternoon, full of .children,, gathered frpm
the lanes and alleys of the city. That such .an
enterprise cannot be successfully carried on but
by the aid of Christian benevolence, is evident.
Ririe we not heathens at home? Are they and
their children to be left unwired for ? Surely
nut; and if not, shall it be done unless Christians
will come up to the help of the Lord and make
some little sacrifice? I appeal, therefore, through
the onlureni of your excellent paper, to the be
nevolence of my Christian sisters and brethren` in
the churches to whose hands this may come; I
need assistance. I am in arrears for school
house rent, and without money to discharge it.
A dollar each from fifty friends would clear me
of rent charges till next :lay. I hope my, appeal
will not be in vain. Some , garments for boys,
and shoes for boys, and girls, are much needed.
Whatever I shall receive, will, be aclinowledged in

THE PRESBYTERIAN BANNER AND ADVOCATE.
Congress has got fairly at work, and deeply
into party strife. The proceedings will, for a
time, be looked into with intense interest, by the
whole community. Threats of disunion are very
significantly set forth; but such things are in ex
ceedingly bad taste. A threat is usually met by
a defiance ; and it is seldom made by a gentleman,
unless under the influence of some unhappy feel
ing which dims reason's eye, as well as perverts
his amiability for the time being. It would be
exceedingly unbecoming to needlessly provoke
any portion of the country; and serious provoca
tion is not likely to be given, unless by a few in
discreet zealots, whom it is better to pardon than
to fight; and disunion is not likely to be at
tempted, except by a very limited number of ul
tras, whom the people of their own section will
soon reduce to order.
The discussion of the Army Bill, in the Senate,
exhibited an antagonism not expected. Senator
Hale opposed the increase of the army, with much
earnestness, while Senator Seward advocated the
measure. The former plead against it, on party
principles; the latter ' repudiated party. He ,
would so act upon all questions, that, ten years.
after the close of bis public no man
living should be able to tell from the record
whether he belonged to the one party or the
other." "No, sirrsaid he, "./ know nothing,
care nothing—l never did, I never shall, for party."
An entire freedom from party trammels is a very
rare attainment ; but it is an elevation worth
striving for ; and yet it is to.be suspected that
only a very few who make the attainment will
thereafter attain' o official station. Partizanihip
far outruns' principle, in these degenerate days.
The man who will stand aloof from all party must
also stand immeasurably above his fellows in the
publio estimate of his wortb,lf he shall be chosen
to a high position in the affairs of State.
Kane= holds its prominent positiou,before the
Councils if the nation. On the 2d inst. the Preisi
dent submitted, with his recommendation for ap
proval, the Leoompton Constitution, with the Slain
ry clause. This Constitution was approved on the
21st of November, by shout six thousand votes : a
large proportion' of which were fraudulent, as most
manifestly appears, from : the testimony of Gov.
Stanton and others. The same Constitution was
rejected, on:the 4th ofJanuary, by over ten thou
sand votes, the genuineness of which is undoubt
ed, It is thus, and by many other indication",
not the Constitution which the people wish; and.it
seems exceedingly hard, nn-Republican and nn-
Democratic, to force it upon them. It is needless
for is to go into details of Kansas elections, and
Legislatures, and Conventions, and Constitutions,
and border inroads, and lawlessness, and rebet,
lions, and, the restraining and constraining
. two thousand United States bayonets
under Gen. Harney—not that these things are
unimportant, for they deeply concern the nation,
as well as the people of the Territory; but they
are, generally known, and they have no great Mar.
ence with partizan% when their detirmination is,
to accomplish an end. But Congress should, and
probably will, inquire into these things.
The President's 'Message, accompanying the
Constitution, is long for such an occasion; and it is
somewhat /shored. He does not say much &boot
the history of affairs, except as connected with a
rebellions spirit which he regards SS manifest
on the part of the people. The 4th of January
election, though lawful for some purposes, he
thinks had' o right to embrace the Constitution.
The vote-of the 21st of November was the- one
which he .regards as being rightfully cast :upon
that instrument, and by its result he is determined
firmly to abide.
• , .
Three ideas seem to possess the mind of the
President, Its influencing and justifying his course.
Ist. The Convention on the Constitution was
called, and, the election on the instrument was
held, in accordance with the order of the Legisla=
ture. 2d. If the Constitution does not p lease the
'people, they, will .havn the poirer, in their own
hands, and can alter it at their ,pletisure. 3d. To
decline to admit Kansas now, as a State, would` ,
continue before the, National Councils a very I
;troublesome and exciting question, consuming
:time, exciting bitterness, producing alienations,
and endangering the peace and welfare of the'
country; whereas,• if Kansas is made a State,
then all its interests will be localized . ; it can at.
tend to its own concerns, and Congress can devote
!itself to national affairs'. This all appears well.
. But still, there are those who cannot see why the
i people of a Tenitory might not be left without
the interference of Government, to form a Consti
tution, just as well as the people of a State, to re-,
model a Constitution. But, if perfect freedom
May not be bad in one form, it is well if it can-bet

f are small matters, 'when• compared with national
On the subject of a people's right to alte i r

'... is clear and emphatio ; and his words are worthy
a permanent ,record. He
The people, then, will be sovereign, and can
regulate their Olin affairs in their Own way. If
the majority of them desire to' abolish domestic
Slavery within the - State, there is no other possi
'-lile mode by which it can be effected so speedily
:- as by its prompt admission. The will of-the ma •
j,rity is supreme and irresistible, when expressed
in 'an orderly and lawful - manner. It can unmake
'::constitutions at pleasure. It would be Absurd to
l say they can impose fetters upon their own power,
which they cannot afterwards remove:' If they
', could do , this, they might tie, their own hands for
f a hundred as well as for ten years. These are
the fundamental principles`' of Mneriean freedom,
i and recognizedin some form, by`every State Con
stitution. And if Congress in the act-ot admission
should ,think proper to'recognize them, I can per
1 oeive no Objection. This has been done emptied
-1 caily in the Constitution of Kansas. It declares
lin its bill of rights that f all political` power is
inherent in the people, and all free govermients
r .are founded , owltheir authority and instituted, for
tlidle'behefit, and therefore they haii at all times
an inalienable and indefeasible right , to alter. re -

If, therefore, a provision
changing,the Kansas Constitution after-the year
1864,- Could, by;, possibility, - be construed into
a prohibition to make such change, previous to
that period of prohibition, it would be wholly un-'
availing. , The tegislature already, elected may,
at its first session, =submit the question to a vote
of the people; whether they will or not, have a
convention to amend thhir Constitution and adopt
all necessary means for giving effect to the papa
, lar will."
All this looks well ; arid if the` whole people
were by honest elections, to have the manage
ment, clearly and fully, they'might afford to wait
the few months -needful to rectify their affairs.
But if the official 'power is now in the hands of
unscrupulous men, who will hold elections, re
ceive votes, stuff ballot boxes;make returns, and
issue commissions just 'as they please; and if the
United Stites troops are to be employed to en

Constitution have provided how and when It may
be altered, can a . majority justly rupture the
bond? Can a majority, by virtue of their bare
will, righteously change that Constitution in
any other way than that which has been provided ?
The United States have a Constitution. It pre
scribes how it may be altered—by propositiOns
sent down from Congress by a two-thirds vote, and
adopted by TRIM FOIIRTIFIS of the STATES. Now,
can a mere majority of the States alter it? Or

new Constitution, superseding the old one, and
take possession of offices, property, &0., Sta.

is now annually stieepitdefrom our midat more
victims than cholera• or yellow fever ever Acarried
off itany ten years,',Und, yet no, one seems 1,0,
in any Ptiltfai/Wrtilitsi
measures to avert it. There are in the United
States, at the present moment, not less than a
quarter of a million of consumptives, or of per
sons laboring under some form of disease of the
throat or Inogq, which will speedily reaultin con
sumption, and we are safe in saying that thousands
of these might be saved if they but understood
the nature and causes of the diseased, and would
but act upon that knowledge.
In view of these facts, therefore, we propose
to furnish in a series of short letters, such in
formation as shall enable those in any degree in-
Mined to consumption to be on their guard
against, and to ward off the disease. We eball
also point out the nature of consumption, and
offer snob proofs of its curability as may afford
reasonable encouragement and hope to many ac
tually laboring under the disease. We shall en
deavor to show under What circumstances it is
curable, 'and to give also such directions as may
be necessary for the prevention or relief of va
rious other affections which predispose to that
disease. We had designed to, commence the pub
lication of these lettere earlier, but a pressure of
Rrofessional dities has prevented. We hope,-
however, to be able to furnish an article each
week until we shall have fulfilled the Promise
