Reepeetfully Dedicated to hire. Phebe Raymond.
They tell me, Christian friend, that thou,
The golden slopes art journeying o'er;
with their Autumn•tinted verdure,
Shadow the silrer•aanded shore
•Of the broad stream flowing between
-This earth and Canaan's banks of green.
And dost thou find the sure descent
Toilsome and painful, sad and slow ?
Is•most thy failing visioti bent
Upon the stream, whose solemn flow
Enoiroles-with its ohilliug bud
The beauties of the better land ?
Nay, know we not that lorig ago,
One, with a gentle eye and hand,
Marked mountain side and valley low,
And e'en left footprints in the sand,
That thou nor I need seek in vain
To find the highway o'er the plain?
And know He not that loving lips
Spoke sweeter words than angel's song,
And sealed them in our souls, that we
Might bear them with us all life-long?
Words for our guidance and our cheer,
A lamp to make our pathway clear.
And trust we not that angel bands
A wall of Ere for our defenoe,
Are forming with their joined hands:
While, in hie lamb-like innocence,
Our Saviottr-Shepherd guides our feet
Toward'heavenly pastures green and sweet!
Ah, sister! blessings on thy path
Have dropped frono. Jesus' awned cross ;
Sweet peace, we know, thy spirit hath,
For thine le gain, and ours the loss;
Fint thou shalt be a jewel set
Within the Saviour's coronet.
Lambertville, April, 1858.

The Christian . Ministry :
ITS DECLARED RESPONSIBILITIES; ITS' AC
TUAL BEARINGS ON ALL THE GREAT IN
TERESTS OF MEN.
That we may farther illustrate the dignity
and the importance of the Christian• Minis
try, we go on to remark the declared RE.
SPONSIBILITIES of the office.
That cannot: be, an Institution of trivial
important:43i of inferior interest, Which God's
own declarations := have .clothed with such
Wrful, such tremendous responsibilities.
Witness some of, those official designations,
wide' arc applied, to miaiaterte' , "They'are
milled Watchmen. A watchman is one who
is set to guard the interests of the camp or
city in times of peril. And eolmportant is
the trust committed to his eare;that if when'
danger impends, be is forind sleeping "at his
post, or if for any cause he should fail to
give the alarm, and thus betray his truet, be
would do it at the forfeiture of his life.
Ministers are sentinels about the camp of
God. They are watchmen on Zion's walls.
They are set to watch for souls as those that
must give , .acaount. They cannot sleep;
they cannot prove unfaithful, but the inter
ests of the Church must suffer. They jeep
ard the salvation of their fellow-men ; and,
es a just punishment of their treachery to
Zion's King, they, run the imminent hazaad
of pulling down double ruin on their own
souls. Theme aro the terms of their corp.
mission : " Son of man, I have made thee
a watchman to the house of Israel : there
fore, hear the word at my mouth and giVe
them Warning from me. When I say ,unto
the wicked man, thou shalt surely die ? mid
thou give him not warning, the same wicked',
man shall die in his iniquity, but his blond'
will I require at thine hand:" That office'
must be important when a failure in vie . -
lance, in fidelity in the discharge of its
functions, has such an issue. '
Ministers, too, are called Ambassadors.
"Now, then, we are ambassadors for. Christ,
as though God did beseech you by us," &o.
An ambassador is a messenger or commis
sioner sent from one court or nation toau
other, to treat of high matters of State, af
feeling the great interests of both gevern
ments, that which he represents, and that,
to which he is deputed. And how much
often depends upon the skill and fidelity
with which he discharges the trust commit
ted to him. Here one wrong step, one im
proper Utterance, a single failure in duty,
may result in consequences most disastroui.
On the manner in which the trust is dis
charged, the prosperity or ruin of Empires
and nations may depend., '
Ministers are ambassadors sent by Heav
en's King to declare his.will—to negotiate
a peace between our revolted world and its
offended Sodereign. Here, in this trust,
are involved, not the interests..of earth
merely, but those, too, of heaven. On the
appropriate and faithful discharge of duty,
here, depends not merely the temporal ;
weal or woe of men. But here, the honor'
of God, and the interests of the soul—in-
tenets too mighty for human thought or hu
man utterance, which are infinite and eter
nal, are concerned.
Those who bear this office are stewards of
the mysteries of God', appointed to preside
over the affairs of his family, to dispense
the spiritual provisions of his house. They
are bishops, overseers, shepherds, who, un
der the direction of the Chief Shepherd,
are to feed, to guide, to govern the flock
which be has purchased with his own blood.
Ministers are emphatically declared to be
the salt of the earth, the light of the world,
the messengers of the churches, and the
glory or Christ.' They are unto God, a sweet
savor of Christ i in them that are saved, and
in them that perish. To the one they are
the savor of life unto life, and to the other
they are the savor of death unto death.
We might notice 'other designations and
titles applied to ruinisters, going to show the
dread responsibilities Of their office;' but
on this topic we shall hot dwell, but pro
teed, finally, to remark theACTUAL BEAR

wretched and impious substitute which we
have in the form of the Papacy—that was
ter piece of Satan, to do the work of hell.
This has had its way in lust and blood.
The full story of the evils with which it has
already cursed the Church and the world,
must remain untold, until the day when
God will bring to light the hidden things of
darkness, and make manifest the counsels
of all hearts. There are, too, the Apostles
of error, who, under the garb of the minis
ters of Christ, bring in damnable heresies;
who beguile that they may destroy ; who
turn the.grace of God into lasciviousness.
And many follow their pernioious ways,
through whom the way of truth is evil spo
ken of. Through covetousness, and with
feigned words, they make merchandise of
souls. With such, we own no fellowship.
Nor, with weak ,enthusiasts, ignorant pre
tenders, who though under the influence of
a disordered fancy, or a spirit of pride and
self.righteousness imagine they have special
fitness for the work, yet show their utter
want of qualification. Who have evidently
run without being sent. We admit, more
over, that great injury has been done to,the
cause of religion and of souls, by unsancti-,
fled Men, who, though regularly set apart to
the work, were not called of God,. as' was
Aaron. And it is lamentably true, that
good men, and those most eminently fitted
for the work, are often so encompassed with
infirinity, and so often act out of character,
that they greatly mar their influence for
good, do - injury to others, and bring reproach
on the cause of Christ. Yet with all these
admissions, we still maintain that the influ
ence of the Christian Ministry, in its legiti
mate bearings, is salutary, and only salutary.
That itis adapted 'to promote, and that it
does promote, all the most precious interests
We, of coarse, here regard the Ministry-
in connexion wi th . the Bible, and with all,
the Institutions of a genuine Christianity.
The Christian Ministry, in relation to men,
seeks to bring them under the power a.nd,in
fluenee of • the Gospel. This, is its grand
purpose. It takes man as he is; as a ores.
ture - indeed God's noble 'workmanship but
now in ruins. It finds him guilty, depraved,
enfeebled and undone. And it seeks to
restore him to what he once was yea, •to
higher glory and happiness , than Eden ever
knew. It seeks to correct,. ultimately, all
that, is wrong in man's physical,
al, moral, and 'spiritual,dature. And'where
its influences are -brought 'to bear, it does,
even in this life, meliorate his whole char
aster and condition, to an'extent to which
all other appliances combined can have no,
pretension. And theu it prepares him for
his high destinY in heaven.
For,lwhat else can do for man, .in refer
ence to his phpical cmistitution, s what the
Gospel does ? • , ;i ,
Tire body dcesriadeed,,eentain
of decay and ' death. Under the power of
the curse, it must'be subject to disease, suf
fering, and - dissolution. It must at last
sink into the grave, and become a prey to
putrefaction Farad;worms. But, under the
Wise and, purifying economy which the Gos
pel nreacribes, the phYsical evils incident to
our condition, are, in fact, greatly lessened
or greatly alleviated. And only let men's
passions ; and appetites, and vicious propen-,
shies, every, where be brought under the
Gospel's restraining, power. Let men use
the world so is not to abuse it. Let them
observe that sobriety, and temperance, - and
moderation,' in all things,' which it enjoins.
Let them cease to employ their bodily,mem
hers as instruments of unrighteousness unto
sin, and employ them as instruments of
rikhteousness unto God. Ina word, let all
men adopt for—their governing principles,
the principles of • the Gospel, and love of
God and their fellows, and they would en
joy better health, live longer, and more
than half the diseases and bodily sufferings
which' now alio the race; Would be un
known. And'brighter realizations of good,
in, reference to our physical condition, would ,
bless our world, than poetic faney has ever
predicated of the fabled golden age.
And: then, too,
there is the influence
which the Christian Ministry sheds upon
man's intellectual being. And here all
other agencies combined put not forth - half
the efficiency to develop, 0-strengthen, and
rightly to direct the powers of the 'mind.
It may be the policy of a selfish and an
ambitious priesthood, to discourage the gen
eral diffusion of knowledge. A sanctified
ignorant .stupidity, either in or out of the
pulpit, may decry.the value of human learn
ing. But an, intelligent Christian Ministry,
while it owns no fellowship with old wives'
fables and oppositions of science; falsely so
called, has ever been, and will ever be, the
patron of sound science, of genuine learn
ing. These are in fact, and emphatically
the foster children of the Ministry. The
rising sun does not more certainly dispel
the darkness of the night, and send out its
beams to' warm and to vivify, than does an
intelligent Christian Ministry, wherever it
comes, shed forth as influence to enlighten
.and- to elevate.- That cannotiongrenaain an
ignorant community where 4srich a Ministry
M enjoyed. And we repeat it, and for , the
truth of our position, we, appeal to history
'and to , fact, that the•cause of sound science
andlearning owes less for its inornotion, to
any and to all other agencies combined, than
to this Institution--the Christian .Ministry.
But itis a reference to the actual bearing
of the Christian Ministry on man's moral
and spiritual nature and condition, that es
pecially indicates its iniportance and its
worth. We will, hiiwever, reserve further
remarks on this topic, for a future article.
The Christian has to gc; forth into the
world. There, his profession calls upon
him not only to avow religious -sentiments,
but to be an example of the virtues which
all' men can understand; to live
truth, of honor„ of manly courage, and
manly kindness; to abjure and detest all
meanness and insincerity, and to take as his
law the rule of Christ—to do to others as he
would that they should do to him. And - to
do this, not because. it is " good policy,"
"will pay in the end," or " will ensure •
respect," but, under the sovereiguanthority
of a principle of righteousness ; which,
whilst it regulates everything in this life,
ri s es far above it and stretches far beyond
it--tbat,,,prin,ciple, a lifp o pf rightponsnes,

easy work, free from difficulties and perils ?
The Christian is a man—a being of human
wants, sympathies, and passions. Personal
and family cares press upon him, demanding
foresight, diligence, and skill ; and troubles
come : as you have seen the, rising waters

in like a flood. And mark the men with

enables' them :to 'offer snpereilions 'pity or
patronage to the man who has made sacrifices
for those higher principles by,which he en
deavors to live. Is there no clanger of
catching the, spirit of such men,, and aq

The Preacher and•the Robbers. ,
A Methodist' preaeher,, several years ago,
in Ireland; was. journeying to the village
where he; had to dispense .the word 'of

duty, and was stopped on his te-ay , by three
robbers. One of them seized his bridle
reins, another presented a pistol and demand

The preacher dismounted. The saddle

preacher began to unbutton his great'ebat,
and to. throw it off his shoulders, at the
