Written on Receiving a Letter from my Mother
Dear mother in a distant land,
My heart leaps quick to see,
The traces of that tender hand
Which once supported me,
When round thy neck my little arms
Were flung with childish glee,
Or when a helpless babe I leaned
On thy sustaining knee.
And in my boyhood's freshest years,
That hand was still my stay ;
And when my cheeks were wet with tears,
It brushed them all away.
It wiped the moisture from my brow,
When I returned from play ;
It rested lightly on my head
Wheneer I knelt to pray.
And what if o'er that boyish brow,
Which then was smooth and fair,
The hand of time hath written now
The history of *are? ,
Shall I not love my Mother's hand
Which, smoothed my curling hair,
And held the parted locks away,
That she, might kiss me there?
Tee, time , may write his variedlore
On this pale brow of :mine,
With gathered volumes heap it o'er
For every page a line—
But yet 't will bear two burdens more,
Most oheerly I opine—
The pressure of, thy warm press'd kiss,
That tender hand of thine.
Yours ever, JAMES C. CLow.

one of the.most intensely striking and speaking

In the Lord shall all the seed of Israel be justified
and shall glory.—lsa. al?: 25. •
ME DEAR FRIEND:—The ' prophet Isaiah,
having foretold the general prevalence of
the Gospel, declares that in the Lordin vir
tue of union with Jesus Christ alone—all the
seed of Israel, his spiritual seed, whether Jews
or Gentiles, shall be justified and shall glory.
Justification is in virtue of union with Jesus
Christ, and in him alone can men glory in
regard to their salvation. In him alone the
justified desire and delight to glory, as in
him alone they can be justified and saved.
Thus Paul, after speaking of the manner
of his preaching, and showing that "human
wisdom could neither discover the method of
salvation nor secure compliance with its
terms when revealed," assures the Corin
thians that "they, were in Christ, (i. e., eon
verted,) not because they were wiser, better
or more distinguished than others, but sim
ply because God had chosen or called them."
—See Hodge on 1. Corinthian& But of
him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of . God is
made unto us wisdom, and righteonsness,
and sanctification, and redemption.; that,
according as it is written,
He that glorieth,
let him glory in the Lord.-1. Car. i : 26-
31. Here are several things :
First. UNION WITH CHRIST. Dr. Hodge
in his Commentary on 1. Corinthians, the
substance of whose comment on this passage
Ishall quote, says : "To be in Christ Jesus
is to be united to him, 1. Representatively,
as we were in Adarn.—Rom. v : 12-21 ; 1.
Cor. : 22. 2. Vitally, as a branch is in
the vine, or a member in the body.—John
xv : 1-7. 3. Consciously and voluntarily
by faith.—Rom. viii : 1-39. Of this union
with Christ, the Apostle teaches us here,
first, its origin; and, secondly, its effects.
As to its origin ;itis of God. Of him are
ye in Christ Jesus. It is of him as the ef
ficient cause. It is to be referred to him
alone that ye are in Christ Jesus. Your
conversion or saving union with Christ is not
due to yourselves; it is not because you are
wiser, or better, or more diligent than others
that you are thus distinguished." It is
alone of God; it is due to him and not to
Second. And here are the BENEFITS of
this union. Says Hoge, "The effects of this
union, as here stated, are three. 1. The
first is, that Christ is of God, as the author,
made unto us wisdom. Christ is the true
wisdom. Union with him, therefore, makes
the believer truly wise. It secures the
knowledge of God, whose glory is revealed
in the face of Jesus Christ, and whom to
know is eternal life. All true religious
knowledge is derived from Christ; and it- is
only those who submit to hiS teaching who
are wise onto salvation. -
"2. The second effect of union with
is. righteousness and
these are intimately united - as, different as
pects of the same thing. Righteousness is
that which satisfies the demands of the law
as airule of justification; sanctification, or
holiness, is,that which satisfies the law as a
rule of duty. Christ is both to us. He is
our righteousneis, because by his ,obedience
and death he has fully satisfied the demands
of justice, so that we are 'the righteousness
of God in him.'-2. Cor. v: 21. When we
stand . before the judgment seat of God,
Christ is our . righteousness. He answers for
us; he presents his own infinite merit as the
all.sufficient reason for our justifiCation.--
Rom. iii : 21,.22; and v: 19; Phil. iii: 9.
He is also our sanctification. His Spirit
dwells in all his people as the Spirit of holi
ness, so that they are transformed into his
likeness from' glory to glory. Wherever the
Spirit dwells, there are the finite of the
Spirit.—Acts xxvi : 18; Rom. viii 9, 10,;
Gal. v : 22; Eph. ii : 5, 10.
"3. The third effect is redemption, i. e.
deliverance from evil. This term sometimes
includes all the benefits received froin Christ.
When he is called our Redeemer he is pre-
rented as our deliverer from guilt, from hell,
from siniffom the'power of Satan % from the'
grave. But when redeniption is distin
guished from justification and sanctification,
it refers to the final deliverance from evil.
The Idey of redemption' is the day when
the work of Christ shall be consummated in
the perfect salvation of• his people as to soul
and body.--Rom. viii : 23 ; -`Eph. i : 14,
and iv : 30; Heb. is: 12." In the eighth
chapter of Romans the whole creation is
represented as in earnest expectation of that
day; waiting, looking with outstretched
neck,.for the manifestation of the sons of
God.—Rom. viii: 19-23. .-
"Those, then, who are in Christ have
Divine wisdom or the saving knewledge of
God and of ',Divine things; they _have a
righteousneis which secures their justifica
tion. There is no condemnation to those
that are in Christ Jesse.—Rom. viii : 1.
They are renewed after, the image of God,
and shall finally be presented witheut spot
or blemish before the presence of hilyglory.
And they are partakers of eternal redemp
tion or full deliverance from all the evils of
sin, and are intreduced into the glorious lib
erty of the children of God. These infinite
blessings can be obtained, only through
Christ. Union with him is the necessary,
'and the only , necessary, condition of our par
ticipation of these blessings." Then seek
this union. It is to be sought of God.
Third. For, again, we see here the AV-
Trcort of this union. It is all _of - God. Of
him, says Paul, and says`Hodge; " Our union
with Christ" is of God., It is not of • our
selves, by our wisdom, goodness, or strength,
but solely by his grace; and, therefore,
must be sought as an unmerited favor."
Seek that you may find:; seek earnestly;
Fourth, Finally, here is the DEBIGN of
God in the plan of redemption, that we
should glory only in him; that, according.ai
it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory
in the Lord. "The design of God in mak
ing wisdom, righteousness, sanctification and
redemption dependent on union with Christ,
and union with Christ dependent not on our
merit, but-On his own good`fdeesure; is that
we should glory only in `him; that is, that
our CONFIDENCE SHOULD BE IN BIM and
not in ourselves, and that all the glory of
our salvation should be ascribed to him and
not to us. Such being :the design- of God
in the work of redemption, it is obvious we
must conform to it. in order to be 'saved.
We must seek, wisdom, righteousness, sane
tifioation, and •redemption only in Christ;
and we must seek union with Christ as in
undeserved favor." We have no claims.
We must• renounce ourselvek We mist
look. to God only through Jesus-Christ. He
is our only hope. In him we must. trust.
In him only can we glory.—See Hodge on
1. Cora i 26-41.
The two points selected for our censidera
tion from'those suggested by this interesting
and precious passage of God's Word, were
regeneration and justification. Regenera
tion, the 'new birth, is the beginning of the
Christian life. By nature we are dead, dead
in sin, regeneration makes us alive; you
hath he quickened.—Eph. 1 and being
made alive, we are new creatures. Every
new birth begins a new life; it makes 'us
new. We begin to live; and as regeneration
is' the' beginning of new spiritual life, so all
the blessings of salvation are connected with
it, just as all the blessings of life are con
fleeted with our nature. birth. The life
imparted in regeneration will be nurtured
till we reach heaven, because of our union
with Christ, our life. Once made alive by
grace, and united to Christ, we die no more.
He that believeth on the Son, hath everlast
ing life.—john 16; 1. John v: 10-12.
Hence all the benefits of salvation are con
nected with regeneration. Regeneration is
salVation begun ;'it is the beginning of graze
which shall end in glory, just as surely. as
Jesus Christ is the legal Head`of his people;
for, as he himself declares, Of those given
him be will lose nothing.—John xvii : 1-
26. The hand which holds the sceptre of
the universe, holds them, and none on earth
or in hell can pluck them out of his hand.
—John x: 26-30. The predestinated
shall be called; the called shall be justified;
the justified `shall be glorifted.—Rom. viii :
28—S9. Here you'see that one of the ben
efits of salvation, which are' all connected
with effectual calling or regeneration, is jue
tifination. This is the next point to be eon
aidered; and of this in my next. Read
Rom; chap& vi and vii; and Hymn 278 ;

Literary Men and their Wives.
I do maintain that a wife, says Sarah
Coleridge, whether young or old, may pass
the evenings most hapily in the presence of
the husband; occupied herself, and con
scious that he is still better occupied, though
he may but speak with her, and cast his
eyes upon her from time to time; that such
evenings may be looked forward to with
great desire, and deeply regreted when they
are -passed away forever. Wieland, whose
conjugal felicity has been almost as cele
brated as himself, says, in a letter written
after his wife's death, that if he but ,knew
she was in the room, or, if at times she but
stepped in and said a word or two, that was,
enough to gladden ,him. Some of the hap

higher ; but the hand of persecution was upon
him, and he wad afraid to say the air had

of the Bible, he would have discovered that

Here is another proof that Job was famil

It keelbeen said by one of our best to:Aeri
al:l agrioulinraliste, that " no plant enriches,
the soil so much for potatoes, as red clover."
I think p'r'actical agriculture proves this;
and that a clover sad, when reversed by the
plow, forms the - best seed-bed 'for a good
crop of potatoes which, can
• conveniently be
given. Many join in this oPinion, and I
was not surprised' to seein your added re
marks to a recent communication in the
Rurca, that you dissenteclfroni`the course
recommended, of Fall plowing and breaking

Let me here state a plan of growing pota

easy, cheap, and successful. My potatoes
and corn are generally• both planted in one
field, and With the same manuring and prep

loamy soil, and apply from twenty, to thirty
loads . of barnyard manure-r-leaving it in

The,field, is then marked into rows with a
"marker" which does up three rows at a
time, three and one-half feet apart, and thdn

hills (of both crops) are three and one half
feet distant from each other. For varieties i
with dwarfish vines, this gives more room
than is needed—these might be planted
nearer one way of the rows. Drills Ido not
like, though where one plows in the seed !
and plows out the potatoes, it is most con
venient. Bat, planting in the cornfield,

The culture usually given is to pass

the plants are large enough to bear billing,
all that is necessary. On a clover sod well

Before hilling, I always give each bill a
spoonful or so. of .plaster, and, know it pays
well to do so. My crops are as good and as
free, from rot as those of the best neighboring
farmers.—Raral New Yorker.
An agricultural exchange says "An ex
,perienced agriculturist informs us - that about
six years ago, he applied lime to potatoes
that' were partly rotten, and that it im
mediately, arrested decay. Potatoes that
'Were partly rotten when, the lime was ap
plied, continued to rot, and were lost. Since
then he, has made it a common practice to
apply slacked lime to his potatoes as he
takes them up. He, puts a thin layer of lime
upon the floor where the potatoes are to be,
laid, and sprinkles some,, of it over them
about, every ten inches, as they are put down.
He considers this as perfectly protecting them
from rotting, as he has never had arotten pots.
to since , he has practised it; and he believes
also that potatoes thus used are rendered
better by, the action of lime. We advise the
farmers to try tins plan, as it easily can be
done by them all.!
This is an important subject for farmers,
and is claiming considerable attention in the
United. States. We notice that in'the vicin
ity of Chelmsford, England,' a -successful
experiment 'of the kind was made a fair
weeks since, in the presence of a hire num
tier of persons engaged in agriculture. The
Chronicle, of that

three acres, called Mill Field, near the`White
Heart Inn. The first start was with two
double plows, but as it was an ,exceedingly
heavy' , soil, usually plowed with three or
four horses, very foul, and from being lately
drained, not lying *ell, it watf difficult ' for
the engine to pass over it, and after a pause,
four: single , plows were attached, and ,al
though at first, from not .being able to get
the going gear to work favorably, some little
delays were caused, after' a time 'they did
their work admiiably, plowing, from six to
nine inches deep. The work= was wonder
'fully straight, though done in the midst of a
large concourse of .spectators, who were evi
dently deeply intetested the.experiment.
So clung and tough—so close and heavy
was the nature of the soil, that in answer to
inquiries made, as to how the matter was
going on, ' the observation of all thoie' who
knew, the locality was
" Well, if it can plow now, it can plow
anything.' Many farmers who entered , the
field' prejudiced, were unreluctant in their
praises, and acknowledged that the wonderful
machine, being still in its infancy, would, as
improvements"followed ` - e'ff'ect - ` extraor
dinary change in the cultivation and man
agement of land of every description. ,
Thomas Fuller relates a curious incident,
which is truly characteristic. A gentleman
(he, say) having led a' company of children
heyond their usual journey, they began to be
weary, and -jointly 'cried to him to carry
them,'which, because of their multitude, he
could'not do; but
,he told them he would
provide them, horses to ride on. Then, cut
ting litte wands out of the hedge, as nags
for them, and a larger one for himself, they
mounted, and those who could sbaroe stand
before, now, full of mirth, .bounded cheer
Dr. Livings%one says: "When the Eng

that all the Afrinans are like the specimens
we have in'front of the tobacconists' shops.
This is not the case,at all. That is the real
negro type, that is only to he found in the
lowest pare of the population. The people
generally' are not altogether black. Many
of them are of olive Cohn', or of the color of
