Will you mourn, mother dear, when you mice
your boy's face,
And think you' II ne'er see him again ?
Will our own happy borne be a sorrowful place,
So full of your anguish and pain ?
But, mother, I'll live in the home of the skies,
A crown like the stars on my head,
And not in the grave, where the poor body lies
At peace, with the numberless dead.
And you'll come to me, mother, some day,
To live in that heavenly place ;
And I'll meet you, and show you the way
That leads to the dear Saviour's face.
And he'll smile when he sees that my mother has
To dwell with me there, in that dear happy home.
When my father has laid me on earth's calm
He'll weop as he goes from my side ;
And his thoughts will,oft turn to the place of my
And he'll mourn that his own boy has died;
But, father, don't say, in the grave that I lie,
Oh think of your boy far away, .
In the bright world of bliss, beyond the blue sky,
Where it shineth an endless day.
And you'll come, wont you, father, some
To live in that heavenly place?
And I'll meet you, and show you the way
That leads to the dear Saviour's face.
How he 'll smile when he sees that my father has
To dwell with me there, in that dear happy home
Oh, I'll often look forth, from the bright pearly
They're open all night and all day;
And how I will shout, (you'll know your boy's
When you come up the shining path-way.
I'll help them to dress yon, in robes pure and
And a harp of fine gold you 'll receive ;
I think then they 'll lead you before the white
The Bible says so, I believe.
Then you'll come to me, wont you, some day,
To live in that heavenly place ?
And I'll meet you, and show you. the way
That loads to the dear Saviour's face.
Oh, we'll tall at his feet, and I'll tell him you've
Forever to stay, in that dear happy home
But the angels are coming, I see their bright
My father and mother—good-by
Their mnsio is sweet, who is it that sings ?
Oh mother! they 're drawing so nigh.
Farewell then, dear mother, my father, good by !
I'm going to Jesus today;
Come, angels, and take me up through the blue
To heaven, to heaven away.
And you 'll come to me, wont you, some day,
To live In that heavenly place?
And I'll meet you, and show you the way
That leads to the dear Saviour's face.
Oh, we 'll fall at his feet, and I'll tell him you've

For the Presbyterian Banner and Advocate
Revival at Cumberland, Ohio,
Da. Ma - KINNEY—Dear Brother The
Lord bath done great things for us, whereof
we aro glad." On Tuesday night last, we
closed a series of meetings which have been,
indeed, refreshing. The earnest prayer, in
answer to which this blessing has come, be
gan, I think, the day the Pastoral Letter
sent forth from the Pittsburgh Convention,
was read to the congregation. There was a
a solemn silence during its reading, which
we took as a token for good. A little more
than one month ago, we had a communion,
at which time deep feeling was manifest.
But owing to our absence assisting brethren,
we could not continue the meetings longer
than usual. After 'our return, we com
menced these latter services. n the sec
ond day of them, there was most emphatic
manifestations of the Spirit's presence.
The meeting continued nearly three weeks.
But the people did not become wearied.
Night and day, there was an unusual attend
ance to the last. Very valuable assistance
was rendered by Bros. .Mahaffy and Fergu
son of Washington, 0., and Bro. Kelly, of
Chandlersville. May the Lord reward them
for their labor of luve among the people.
Their services will be long remembered;
and I doubt not but in the day of accounts
they will meet souls rejoicing who were
brought to a knowledge of the truth tlirough
their instrumentality. During this meet
ing, in connexion with our last communion,
there were seventy-five united with our
church. Three of these received baptism
ou that occasion, twenty one on last Sab
bath, and six who have been received since
then, are yet to receive it. Last Sabbath
will be long remembered by us. How re
joicing to see so many from the world confess.
ing Christ. Some characteristics of this
meeting are worthy of notice. Ist. A deep
solemnity manifest in the death-like silence;
the tears coursing down the cheeks of young
and old; the earnest, importunate, agoniz
ing prayers of ministers and people. 2d.
Deep conviction. This was manifest in
both the members of the church and sin
ners. We heard members say, with the
deepest emotion, that they never had such
views of sin. Many of the impenitent were
under the deepest conviction for days, some for
more than a weak, before they received coin.
Dort, Deurßrother, has a sinner ever caught
you by the hand, and in the deepest agony,
said, "0 my dear pastor, must I be lost?
0 pray for me ; what must I do ?" They
could not weep ; tears would have been a. re
lief. Such scenes have we been passing
through. 3d. A timidity on the part of the
converted, to confess Christ, lest they might
be deceived. There was no disposition to
rush into the Church; but the great ques-'
tlon was, Am I truly converted ? 4th. This
work of grace extended to the aged, mit"-
dle-aged, and very young; so m e as young
as fourteen were received; so
me as young
as nine are deeply impressed.
In the second place, notice the instru
mentalities. Ist. A concert of prayer- ob;
served by this 'people before these meetings
commenced. 2d. Earnest, faithful preach
ing of the Gospel, both doctrinal and ex
perimental. 3d. Prayer and praise.
The following, in brief, are some of the
precious results of this revival: Ist. Many
souls have been brought into the kingdom
of Christ, who were before neglecting re
ligion. 2d. God's own people have been
revived, aroused, and quickened in duty.
3d. Eleven family altars have been erected,
where before they did not exist. 4th.
Many precious lambs of the flock, and bap
tized members, came forward and assumed
their baptizmal vows. 5. The proportion
between the sexes was as follows: forty fe
males and thirty males, among whom were
twenty.four heads of families.
I have penned this, hoping it may be a mat
ter of rejoicing and encouragement to others.
Many others still are seriously impressed,
some of whom we expect to receive at our
approaching communion. May 'the blessed
work increase, until all our b9loved Zion,
together with others, will be revived, and
many saved. J. R DUNCAN, P. E.

A Letter from Ohio.
MR. EDITOR this communication,
your readers will find a notice of, some things
in general, and a few in particular, and if
they have a tithe of the 'satisfaction in
reading that I have in, writing them, the
perusal of this article will not be void of in
The religious exercises, noticed in a for
mer number as then in progress, in my own
charge in Washington, were brought to' a
close on Sabbath evening, Feb. 21st, at
which time eighteen, more made a public
profession of their faith in Christ; making
the whole number that have connected with
the church on this occasion, on examination,
fifty. Of' these, twenty-seven are men.
Eleven adults were baptized. Our church
is not only strengthened by this large acces
sion, but we are all much revived—minis
ter, officers, members, choir, all. We do
not feel that we can ever, sufficiently praise
God for this unmerited visitation of his
power and grace. As individuals, we can
now sing, " Bless the Lord, 0 my soul;
and all that is within me, bless his holy
We favored, with all our heart, the late
Synodical Convention in your city, and al
though not present ,in person, owing to
onerous Academical duties, still we were
with you in spirit and in labor; for we met
frequently during its sessions, and prayed
as fervently as we could for the return, once
more, of the presence of our God . npon Zion.
The result has been the outpourings of his
Spirit on both our church and Institution.
May this add faith to our prayers, and Mit.
to our resolutions hereafter.
The Monday following the close of our
meeting, I started for Fredericktown, Knox
County, to assist the pastor there in a pro
tracted effort that had been progressing for
some days, with much interest. Owing to a
railroad accident, I did not get off until
Tuesday morning, and then had pro
ceeded only a few miles, when our engine
ran off the track down an embankment,
smashing, apparently, every thing to pieces;
killing, however, none, injuring a few, but
frightening us all moat terribly. All our
stoves were upset, but one. 0, but it was
cold ! The Conduetor.,(Mr. Corben) was
all attention, rendering us every assistance
in his; power. Some of the, farmers ,in the
vicinity furnished sleds to take as many. as
wished to go, on to Concord. Of these,
was one. Eight hours of a delay in this vil
lage, gave us time to make the acquaintance
of our fellow-passengers, (for mutual sympa
thy soon begets sociability,) and to render
thanks to God that we were all alive. Every
man and woman was free to talk on religion,
and ascribe their miraculous deliverance to
the kind hand of a special Providence.
Never can I forget these friends, norPthe
hours spent thus in this pleasant town. Two
of its citizens were with us on the cars when
the crash occurred. They were interesting
young men, but, 1 fear, not pious; for they
were returning home' from a low ball, that
had been given on the night of the "22d,"
in a neighboring , village ! Poor fellows.
They looked as though they were ashamed
of themselves, and they doubtless felt as
they looked. Ho* . sad to think of being
hurled to eternity, in the morning after a
night of sinful dissipation 1 0 young men,
be warned ! Would to God the managers
of our Central Ohio Railroad could also be
warned by the unprecedented loss of prop
erty and, life that has, in the last few weeks,
occurred' on this road, that neither individ
uals nor corporations can violate the sanctity
of God's holy Sabbath with impunity. The
laws of God's moral governuient are, if pos
sible, more immutable than the laws of
nature; and yet all, as if by instinct, keep
the latter that they may, not expose to suf
fering their lives and fortunes. Heaven and
earth may pass away, but God's Word will not
pass away.
The wreck is now off the road. The sun ,
is setting. The " Express " comes—off we
go—soon we are in Newark—no train for
Frederick till to-morrow (Wednesday,) at
noon. We call to mind the motto of Horace :
•-••-•--" Levine fit patientia,
Quidquid corrigere est nefae,"
determined not to complain. We first paid
our respects to the parsonage of the First
Presbyterian church of this place. Brother
Robinson was not at home—bad gone to
Ohandlersville to assist brother Kelly, as
God was most signally blessing his people in
that part of his vineyard also. An account
of this blessed matter you will doubtless
receive from the pen of the pester himself; I,
therefore, pass it by.
In all my*travels, I never heard as much
conversation on the subject of religion, in
depots and hotels, (had it been all, put 4o
gether,) as I heard in Newark, the few hours
I was there; although, so far as I could learn,
there is nothing special in any of the
churches here, on this subject. 0 that God
would revive his cause in this place, and
make it as lovely a spot morally as it is nat.
wally !
Wednesday, two o'olock, finds us in Mt.
Vernon depot. A friend from Frederick
met us there with a dispatch from home, in
answer to one inquiring as, to what had be
come of us. All was seen explained—
thanks to Professor Morse 'and' on we went,
I reaching `Mir *destination inlime to be well
refreshed, in both the inner and outer man,
before evening service.
Well, here we staid, and preached day and
night till the next Monday, to as large, at
tentive, and respectable audiences as it was
ever our privilege to address. During the
whole meetings twenty-six were added to
the church, mostly on examination, eight of
whom were baptized.
Our church here is in a most , prosperous
condition. The pastor, Rev. J. P. Cald
well, is popular , ; and his labors have been
much blessed. in eighteen months the num
ber of communicants has doubled. Then
there were a few over one hundred, now
there are more than two hundred.
The people here have taste, intelligence,
energy, and liberality. This is . seen in their
manners dress, homes, churches, and town.
In all olwhich appears just enough of the
Yankee to make it all decent, without
enough of it to make any thing dangerous.
When at Frederick, I• received a letter
from Rev. J. R. Duncan, of Cumberland,
stating that meetings of unusual interest
were in progress in his church there, and
requesting us to return home that way. In
doing so, I met Dr. Floge in ML 'Vernon,
who told me that for thirty years he had not
known suchia stir on the subject of religion.
He said that most of our churches in central
And Western Ohio were greatly revived,
some of them most signally- Never• did I
see this venerable father so cheerful, so so
cial, so talkative. He had attended both
Conventions. His, heart was warm; his
mouth was open, to speak .a word for God.
Ile had preached, three times in the last
thirty Six hours, and evinced no lassitude
whatever. He is renewing his strength.
With emphasis he told the writer, that he
solved every Providential difficulty, in both
Church and State, with this brid aphorism :
'" It will all come out right in the end"
A delightful ride of a few hours brought
us to Cambridge, where I got a horse, (0
what a horse and rode to Cumberland,_ a
distance of sixteen' miles, over as bad andtas
cold a road as I thought I had ever been on.
The glorious 'things seen for five days in
this church, soon dispelled all remembrance
of the troubles in getting here. Day and
night was the ;house filled with a solemn
people, many of' whom anxiously asked the
old question, " What must' do to be saved ? "
and received in reply the old answer, " Be
lieve on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou
shalt be saved."
Between sixty and seventy have been
added to the church in this place. Twenty
adults r were baptized here last Sabbath.
God's grace is here with great power,.
Former troubles are all gone. The Winter
is passed, the rain is over, the flowers bloom,
the birds sing.
But enough, the pastor will tell you all.
0 that God may continue his bleasings with
us all . W.MF.

Letter from Boston.
BOSTON, March 13th, 1858
Rsv. Du. M'KTIVNEY :—Dear :--
Having had proof so often that you like to
hear from this "old Pilgrim City," I' em
brace this leisure moment to send you a
brief statement of matters and things here
Business is beginning to revive, as Spring
opens, though we have recently had more
snow and cold weather than we had' in De
cember and January. One proof Hof busi
ness growing better, is found in the fact that
the book-publishers, whose "craft" has
been nearly suspended during the "finan
cial crisis," is now beginning to be resumed.
Several firms are publishing interesting
works, among which may be named that of
John P. Jewett
.& Co. This firm, you may
remember, suspended during the crash.
But it has now resumed action with the ac
cession of Governor 'Crosby, late of Maine,
as one of the partner& They have just
brought out, a splendid volume of Dr.
Train's Translation of " The •Jewish War
of Plavius Josephus," of six hundred and
four pages, royal octavo: This translation
is considered by far the hest of any one of
this old historian, and the book will doubt
less be sought by all clergymen and Socie
ties for their libraries. It is in good type,
and on nice white paper, and thus has
a . body, as well as a soul. Bid yoti
probably see the : work for yourself.. It is a
pleasure to us to find this old firm rejuvina
ted, and centrally located; and well •pre
pared for publiehicg.
But the greatest curiosity in th; book
line is the publication of the Pitt. Street '
Lectures,' (so called because they were com
menced 'in the Pitt Streit chapel, 'though
they were completed in a , larger house.)
These lectures are a curiosity. , Only think
of the Universalist, Episcopalian, Baptist,
Methodist; -Orthodox Congregationalist, and
Unitarian Congregationalist, (and 'to give
the finishing stroke, or, in ceMrnon'Phraseol
ogy, ," to cap the.climax-,") a, Universalist,
'now settled, over a Unitarian Society, with,-
out any change of sentiment, delivering the
last lecture, on practical Christianity.
These lectures are all published in one
volume, by the firm above named. If this
is not a violation of the old Jewish •law, of
not "yoking together" certain diverse
beasts;' then' you, Mr. Editor, may give it a
name of your own choosing. The lectures,
however, make a very handsome, readable
book ; and, as the champion of each de
nomination has told his' own story, and
given his own reasons for choosing, that
denomination, in preference to a other, it
is supposed the book • will meet with a ready

White&ld, when he was compelled, by
" the press " of people, to climb up a 'ladder,
and get into the pulpit "through a window,"
from the outside, Boston has witnessed
nothing like the throng of people which
now come up dailb "at the hour of
prayer," ":to, call on the name
.of the Lord."
For several days, the 'morning prayer
meetings at the-chapel of "the Old 'South
Church," have been more than 'full. • Two
days since, the lower part of the chapel,
which contains " the Prince Library," and
which is divided into two !toms, was-opened.
at the same hour with the ,room above, and
three of the rooms were crowded with atten
tive,' prayerful listeners and speakers. The
matins, also, at ." Park Street church,"
and,. indeed,; at almost all the other Churches
in. the city, are also full, and more. than
,hundreds„ and, perhaps, thousand's,
going away for want of room { -in which to
stand ~
Surely, "we never saw it:,b,efore, on this
wise, and whereunto this wilt grow, we knoW
not." We cannot but hope Oat it is really
44 a time of refreshing from the present or
the Lord," and that much good will come
of it. It seems to have toile on gall at
once. You may ask, if Mr Finney is, the
leader? In reply, it may be:said, we hear
but little of him. He is preaching here,
but, so Mr as I know, he has, not accom
plished much. He has life friends, and, I
would hope, has been doing:good.
Two days since, ,4 linguessinen's prayer
meeting was appointed, at 12 o'clock M.,
and , ,to the surprise of ' allii4Wthatilblisyl
hour, thousands left " the M:arkcjilkiageol
and-the money changer's" heires, and camp

were the causes of.its •virtual defeat, and of

Lord Derby will do his utmost to •keep his
place for a time; and perhaps to-night, when
the House meets after adjournuient, we may
Ind Jilin, very coneiliatory,, and more liberal
than was expected. It gives a great party
a " tarn," but already the Times is setting
itself in desperate resolve, against_ the Cab

nently, into a false position by their Tory
It remains to be seen whether Parliament
having• vindicated its independence, may
not, on .principle, pass , a law equivalent to
the proposed "Conspiracy Bill." The
.Times says, truly, that the second reading
of that bill was not refused, and that it is
-quite competent to bring it forward on its
own merits. The Radicals, however, will
oppose it in any shape; and if, as Lord
Campbell says, the law as it 'stands is suffi
cient to punish _conspiracy, •it is likely _that
the new Cabinet will not press the bill, es
pecially as Louis Napoleon is -sure to be
very complaisant to them.. What courtesy
and conciliation can do "to make things
smooth," will doubtless be done by the. Cab
inet; and even as to India,.they may plead,
that as Parliament has resolved -that it, shall
be giiterried in the Queen's name, the re
solve must be carried out. The idea is
thus expressed in one morning paper, and
'Lord .Derby may eagerly adopt it, as his
plea for consummating the Whig measure; a
.delay of which he advocated :
" If, at. . this Crisis, when tidinge of the
downfall of the Company have gone ontito
•the East, and utterly extinguishedits re
maining prestige, a new Cabinet were to
proclaim the reversal of, that Imperial policy,
there wOuld cud. ; to all hopes of re-
Armando administration ,of the . Queen's East
ern dominions:"
tot& Ecclesiastical policy of the new
Cabinat,,it . le pretty certain that 'it
,will be
,Aig'h-Church, and Anti-Evangelioal. This
.adtnits or demands a
nt-fold modification ; first, that. as Glad
;stone not in the Ministry, Traqtarianism,
such, is net likely to , receive favor; and
secondly, thai in Ireland 'the' Evangelical
clergy, will, politically . be in the ascendant
for promotion. It is a curious anomaly,
that while, here the High-Church and , Trae
tarian parties ; are "Romeward " in their
religious , sYmpathies, and yet Deihyites,
in Ireland,' opposition to both, on the part of
the. Conseryatives, is most decided. With
Derby in office, Seini-.Popery gains in Eng
land; but, per, contra, Evangelical Church
, lam gaine, and , Popery is discountenamied,
`in Ireland ! The Irish Government of the
