"The Chu:oh of the tiring 6 .d, the .pillar

:the truth," and all must come and /earn of
her—sit at her feet as did 'Paul at the feet
nt Gatnaliel
2. Cnrigt says to Peter,,Cdatt gvi : 18 )
"Thou art Peter, and upon this Rock I will
build my Chuich r und the.gates of hell shall
.not prevail against it." This, of course,
means the " Baptist" Church. She has
the exclusive promise •of Almighty prutee
thin, inasmuch as there is but one Church
of God, and that the one, "in which the
Apostolical rule and practice '(of imwer.
stun) is adopted and faithfully' copied." All
otiper "organizations," therefore, must take
care of themselves. Christ extends his
: promise done to " the Church."
3 Paul , says, in Ephesitins v : 25, 26 :
" Husbands, love your owo wives, even as
: Christ also loved the Church, and gave
himself for it, that be might sanctify and
cleanse it with the wasbing of water by the
Word, that he might present it to himself a
glorious Church not bvinu spot, or Wrinkle,
or any such thing, but that it should be holy
and without blemish "
Frow this, in connexion with the teaching
'of this editor, we learn that Christ died only
for the Baptist Cliuroh, of course truly "lover"
that Church—has done nothing, and is doing
nothing, to sanctify or cleanse any, except
those who are in that Church. This is so
apparent that any one can see it, and if any
Baptist editor should be compelled, by his
. position upon the subject of immersion, to
come out fully, and carry his principles to
their ultimatum, we hope he will not fail to
give us credit for the above exegesis,
4. In Ephesians, again , .(i : 22, . 23,) we
read, "And bath put all things under his
feet, and gave him to be the bead over ail
things to the Church, which is his body,
the fullness of him that filleth all in all."
Christ has therefore universal dominion for
the sake of the Baptist denomination. All
things are his, because they—his body, his
Church—are to be preserved, watched over,
stud saved. Of course, those who are not of
the body of Christ, cannot be saved. They
are out of him—have no part in bim—are,
and must be lost.
5. In Colossians, i : 18, we read that
"He is the bead of the body, the Church."
Of course, according to this editor, the Bap
tists, alone, have a head. All other organ
izations, not being constituent portions of
the Church, cannot plead that Christ is their
head. They must, of course, be lifeless
trunks, without a head to direct or control
them. Under these circumstances, it is
certain that they must all come to nought.
Your readers may, perhaps, think that I
have devoted more time to this subject than
its importance warranted, and yet I could
not, in justice to my own feelings, have said
less. Here is a paper, circulating more ex
tensively almost than any other religions
journal in the worth-West, taking the most
illiberal and exclusive views, and maintain
ing them by a partizan appeal to the Word
of God. This, too, in the middle of the
nineteenth century, when, by the dissemina
tion of light and knowledge, a coming to
gether of Christian Churches is earnestly
desired and expected. Perhaps, however,
we should not be surprised, when we con
sider that the invariable result of adopting
some single notion, and exalting it above
every thing else, making a hobby of it, is to
lead to radicalism and extravagance. Reli
gious duty consists not in the adoption of
one or two dogmas, and manifesting great
zeal in their defence, but in accepting the
whole system of truth, as it is revealed in
God's Word, and *aming our life and char
acters upon it. He whcidoes this by God's
help, will never become a mere sectary, or
bigoted fanatic.
As to the specific question commented
upon above, we conceive the Scriptures are
explicit. All who believe in the Lord Jesus
Christ become, by that act of faith, of the
body of Christ, and of course of his Church,
in the largest, most unrestricted sense of
that term. In receiving the ordinances of
religion afterward, he may be greatly mis
taken in not being immersed, but still he is
a member of the body of Christ. Ciroum.
stances may be such, that he may not be
able to receive the ordinanoeis of religion at
all, and yet be a member of the true Church
This, we conceive, was the case with the
thief upon the cross. Membership in the
Church is the ground of his receiving the
ordinances of religion He is baptized and
received to the communion of the Lord's
Supper, because he has experienced that
change needful to constitute him a member
of the one true Church of God.
The uses of the term "Church" in the
Scriptures, are, as we think, very clear.
We all know the% the term "State" is em
ployed in a general sense, to designate our 1
entire Republic. Thus a Congressman or I
Senator may speak of the " affairs of -State,"
and mean thereby the affairs of the General
Government. We use the same term prop
erly, also, when we speak of the State, to
designate the lesser divisions of the Govern
ment, as the State of Pennsylvania, Illinois,
&e. The " affairs of State," here, is an ex
pression as proper as in the first instance.
Thus there is a general, and also a limited
or restricted use of the term " Churoh," in
the Word of God, designating the whole
family of Christ, and those lesser divisions
of that family separated either into denomi
nations, or individual societies of which
those denominations are again composed.
We need not refer to instances in illustra
tion of these views. Let the readers of the
Banner and Advocate, by the use of a Con
cordance, turn to the passages in whioh the
word " Church" is employed in God's Word,
and the truthfulness of our explanation
above, will abundantly appear.
It is pleasant to turn -from what we are
fearful is the growing exclusiveness of one
denomination of Christians, to consider what
we think to be the advancement of charita
bleness in another. The Episcopalians in
Illinois have two organs—one the exponent
of the High Church party, and one, recently
started, the organ of the Evangelical portion
of that Church. With the spirit of this pa
per, we are much pleased. It heartily ap.
proves of the union prayer meetings; ad
vises the members of that Communion to
join in the good work of laboring in that
wayrfor the promotion of the Lord's cause;
suggdsts that Episcopalians lay aside their
peculiarities, and strive in every way to aid
in the furtherance of revivals of religion in
their respeotive 'communities ; and gives re
ports of %chid the Lord is doing in the vari.
ens sections of our country to revive his
work. Surely` this is a good omen. It is
certainly a cause•of congratulation that there
are enough in that Church in the North
West, of the Evankelioal party, to sustain
such a paper. It is published at Chicago,
is ably conducted by an association of aler
gymen, and will be, wiihout question, of
great service to that branal4f the Church.
A flying trip to the thriving,oity of Rock
ford, a few days since, assured - 1m of the fact
that brother Farris is laboring with the Old
School Church there with much ac c eptan c e,
wad good prospects of ultimate success. You
are aware that this Church has had many
embarrassments in past years. We trust
these are now river, and that its growth will
be healthy and rapid
The church at Freeport has been without
the services of a pastor for some months past.
They have; however, extended an invitation
to brother' Marr, of Lewisburg, Pa , to take
the pastorate. He has .been to sec them,
and now holds their invitation under advise
ment. We hope the Lord of the harvest
will direct him into this field, which is
greatly needing a faithful laborer.

in Virginia,

sembly, with an eye to any connexion dis
coverable between the recent revival and the
Pittsburgh 'Convention of last Fall, some in•
teresting results appear. These will be ren
dered more palpable, if we set down in order
diets Synods which have been most favored
duringithe year, together with the number
of pastors and stated supplies, and the aver
age of admissions on examination, by each
pastor and stated supply. Thus :

It appears, therefore, that, so far as our
own Church is concerned, the revival was
most powerful in that region which was rep ,
resented in On Pittsburgh Convention.
Of the Presbyteries, that of Clarion, in
the Synod of Pittsburgh, has been far the
most favored of any. With only seven pas•
tors and stated supplies, they received, on
examination five hundred and seventy-two
persons, being an average of over eighty-one
to each stated laborer. In one pastoral
charge; in that Presbytery, were received
one hundred and twenty persons, and in
another one hundred and four.

For the Presbyterian Banner and Advocate
The Presbyterian church recently erected
in Latrobe, by the Unity oongregation and
some of the citizens of the town, most of
whom are members of that congregation,
was, on the sth inst., dedicated to the wor
ship of Almighty God, by appropriate and
deeply interesting services, conducted by the
Rev. Dr. Plumer, of Allegheny city
The day was favorable, the house was
well filled, and the sermon fully equalled
the high expeetations of the people. The
dedicatory prayer was brief, comprehensive,
well adapted to the occasion, and so Scrip
tural and devout, that all who had the spirit
of devotion could most heartily join in it.

Master in place of Mr. Anderson, the late very
efficient and accommodating incumbent, whose
term of office has expired. From Mr. Dunn's

pate a continuance of the excellent administra

The election in Kansas, on the lst of August,
resulted in the defeat of the Lecompton Constitu

is estimated at eight to ten thousand. Thus Kan.

will be made speedily, to obtain herrecognition as

West Point Military Academy.
Our patriotic countrymen will be greatly pleased
to see some indication, though, as yet, but slight,
of a reform in the appointing of cadets for this .
Institution. The school is designed for the ben
efit of the connt.y, and is sustained at great ex
pense. The training is admirable, both of the
physical and mental powers, but the boys have
obtained their appointments, rather because they
were relations or proteges of Congressmen, and
of other influential persons, than because of their
personal qualifications. The cOnsequene:e, is,
that a very large proportion of them fail to finish rnvimsziorcr.l
their course, and to enter the service of the coun-

The controlling object Of the government should and pn,rifying•tlie body i fromtheir presence, is of
. . _
be to invite competition among the youths of each
Congressional District, for these. When a va
c►ncy occurs in a Congressional District, no boy
ambitious of obtaining the appointment of cadet,
should he denied the privilege of becoming a can
didate for admission. The present " close bor
ough " method of nomination has no reference to
the talents or merits of the youth who receives
the' appointment. The people would feel that
they had a substantial, tangible interest in the
success of this military school, did the father of
every promising boy know that his son, if supe
rior to his competitors, would win the prize of an
honorable position in the army. The prejudices
now existing against West Point, in many sections
of the republic would disappear if it should cease
to be an institution where the power of nomina
tion is entirely in the hands of politicians.
It is the - boast of our Government, that it fos
ters talent, and invites competition for all offices
of the republic. As far as the selection of officers
for the arrey are concerned, there is no truth iu
this theory. There is nu fair and full competi
tion for thecadet appointments. There is no re
-fererice in the large majority of instances to the
intelligence and merits of the new cadets. We
:are for behind governments less liberal and demo
,eratie thamoor own in the mitaod of appointing
.cadets for the army.
The sagacity and military experience of other
countries ham long since taught them the impor-'
•tance of iiecering, by generous competition, the
very best talent for the army, Cadets, in many
•countries of ilinrope, selected from a number of
.candidates--the selection always falling on the
most talented and promising youths. In France,
for instance, where the first military schools of
the world eriet, there is no favoritism exercised
in the appointments of the military schools. In
.one of the States of this Union a normal school,
modeled after vlVest•Point, the Superintendent and
Professors at which, are graduates at West Point,
has bets for snarly' twenty years in successful
=existence, where a board of visitors annually se

sion those hest qualified to repay the State for

DIED —On the evening q)f the 2cl: of August,
Mrs. MARY ANN, wife 'of Dr. Robinson, of
She had been religiously educated by her
parents, (Mr. and Mrs. Jordan,) and brought
by the power of the Holy Spirit to give evidence
of a gracious change, and to devote herself to
God. When her weakness and sickness threat
ened dissolution, she was tranquil, in the exercise
of faith. At last, triumphant, she resigned her
babe, husband, mother, brothers and sisters,
witiran assurance that she was about to ascend ,
to Jesus. • Thus, this youthful and beloved dis
ciple of our Lord gave a dying testimony to the
truth of religion,`andleft an amiable example to
surviving friends and acquaintances, who honor
her memory. • S.C.J.
Shirleysburg, duly 28th, Mr. SAMUEL
CAROTELERS, in the 86th year of his age.
The deceased was born in York County, in
1773, whither his father had returned on account
of Indian hostilities. After these ceased, he
came r back and settled permanently near the
plane where the subjeot of thid notice spent his, ;
entire ; iife. The life of the deceased sweeps over_,.
the entire history of his country thus far, as a
free and independent nation. The population of
the hind has increased perhaps nine fold during
his life, and the Presbyterian Church, taking the
two branches, at least twenty fold. He has been
an elder of Shirlesburg Presbyterian church
about one-third of a century, and a member still
longer. He was marked in life for his hospital
ity, honest integrity, and his genereal interest in
the church of which he was an overseer. His
last years were much clouded with the in
firmities of old age. But though the weight of
years were upon him ever since the writer of
this knew him, yet his delight to hear the voice
of prayer, and to have his thoughts directed to
Christ, evinced his ripening for the harvest, to be
gathered as a sheaf for the heavenly garner. He
has left many friends to call to mind his history,
and the faith of hie last days. May they all
profit by the lessons' of the Bible and of Provi
dence, that when death comes, whether it comes
in youth or in old age, they may be ready.
Dflan—On the 25th of February last, GEORGIS
ANDIMON, Esq., a Ruling Elder in the Presbyte
rian elm& of Birmingham, Ohio, in the 68th
year of his age.
In him the community in which he lived lost
one of its best citizens, his family its loving head,
and the Church a faithful and public-spirited
member and ruler. Mr. Anderson was a man of
very amiable and kind disposition, "and of few
words ; he rather courted privacy in the bosom
of his family, yet he was not deficient in those
sterner qualities of head and • heart that place
men in commanding positions ; for he had in a
high degree, integrity, foresight, and perse
verance; and when called out by his fellow
citizens, or by his brethren of the Church, to fill
posts of trust, he refused not, but always ren-,
dered valuable services to the Church ana State.
His native worth, his stern integrity, his deep
and humble piety, are embalmed in the memories
of, his family and intimate friends. The end of ,
this faithful servant was in keeping with his life.,
From premonitory symptoms, he anticipated a
sudden departure from this world. Atk4 so it
was. ,After spending the day in a social visit at
a neighbor's,,he - returned home, and while con
versing at his own fireside, with his brother, his
head suddenly reclined, and he ceased to breathe.
God thus saying to surviving friends, " Prepare to
meet thy God. F.F.
DIED—In Huntingdon, Pa., on the 20th ult.,
in the 18th year of her age, Erirs 0.", youngest
daughter of the late Ron. John Ker.
Again has a fond and widowed mother been
called to part with a beloved child, yet doei she
not mourn is those who have no hope. Bllie; was
of a very, reserved disposition, owing to which
she was known in her true character to but very
few. She was no common child,: but ,far sur
passed those of her own age in strength of mind
and maturity of intellect. Capable of . the
strongest attachment, she regarded no sacrifice
too great which tended to promote the comfort
and pleasure of her friends. ' But it was at home
that all the lovely traits of her character shone
in their brightest lustre: Obedient, affectionate
and devoted to a fondly loved mother and sister,
it was her delight to contribute to their happi
ness. To these natural qualities, she added the
graces of the Christian. A few short months be
fore her death, she united
,with the Presbyterian
church in Hunttngdon, and the true saving work
of the Spirit was evidenced by a consistent life,
and the triumphant joy with which she "encoun
tered the king of terrors. Her death-bed scene
was one of peculiar interest, and well calculated
to make a deep and lasting, impression upon all
who witnessed it. Calling her Sabbath. School
teacher to her side, she blessed God for having
given hersuch a teacher, and thanking her for
her faithfulness, left messages for her classmates
to meet her in heaven. She addressed personally
all who were present, urging them to adopt as
their motto, " Live for Christ" She had most
correct views of the plan of salvation, founding
all her hopes of heaven upon what Christ had
done and suffered for her, and was enabled to
say, I. know,in, whom Lhave believed, and be
will never leave me nor forsake me. Thus, re
. posing on the kosom of her Saviour, did her soul
wing its glad flight to the mansions of the blest.
Dten—Near Mansfield, July 29th, Mrs. Han-,
NAM JAND consort of Mr; Wm. BO' Mg, in.
the 30th year of her age. • -
It is with feelings of mingled sorrow and joy,
that we record, the death of this most excellent
lady. We mourn because her career amongst us
was so brief, and so soon terminated, though it
was quite long enough to make hernmemory very
precious. We had fondly cherished the hope
that one so amiable and 'Christian-like, and
worthy of, esteem, would have long been spared
to gladden with her smiles, the; many friends.
whom she had endeared to her, and to adorn by
her consistent walk and lovely example, the doc
trine of God her Saviour, in whom she reposed
all her confidence, and trnsted as either salvation
and desire; but God's ways are not as ouri, nor
bis thoughts as ours. And without repining, we
would desire to 'acquiesce in our heavenly Father's
will, and Say, “Even. SO; Father, for so it seem
eth good in thy sight:" '
We rejoice that our departed sister has lift be
hind her, to comfort the heartet of surviving
friends in the midst of 'their severe 'bereavement,
the consolation of a well founded hope, that with
her all is well, and that, their beloved one now
rests in the bosom of her Saviour, whose love is
stronger than death; and from which nothing:
can sever his believing children, and to whom he
is always precious. As we watched around her
dying bedside, we heard no murmur escape her
lips. In the midst of severe , bodily sufferings, we
beheld depicted upon.her countenance the signs
of the tranquility and resignation to her Father's
will which reigned within her bosom, such as
God's grace alone could impart. When reminded
of her critical condition„ and informed that-in all
probability a few days would terminate her
earthly existence, it occasioned no alarm, nor
excited any trepidation. And why should it to
one who had the. eternal God for her refuge, and
who had committed to Jesus her all!
Mrs. , Ewing has left a husband, and a:slittle
lamb' of slew days old, a mother, the grave of
whose husband is yet green, and a large circle of
other ,relatives and friends, to mourn their be
reavement; but they sorrow not as those who
haire no hope, believing that she fell asleep in
Jesus. And now to the place where her remains
rePose,lriendship may find it pleasant to repair
and meditate, as the tears of separation fall upon
her' grave like dew upon herbs. Yet a little
while, and the quickening presence of Him who
is the resurrection and the life; shall animate her
dust, and it shall awake and sing; together with
Christ's once "dead body 'shall it come, and bliss
fully like his glorious body; but before that hour
your spirits may mingle with her's, around the
throne where separation is unknown. R.McP.
