" Perplexed, but Bonn Despair."
Why droops my soul, why should 1 dread
On Jesus' breast to lean my
.head ?
Though earthly comforts all should die,
Still, have I not a Friend, on high ?
Why should I truet in Man repose;
Bine Seim alt''my sorreir knows
He eau relieve i tny enbitifheart,
And eery needral flood impart. 1. r ""
0, let me, then, on hiin• rely,
And to his throne for succor ily, '
When deep, desponding fears distress,
And there my humble prayer address.
And be this truth at length impress'd,
And deeply fix'd within my breast;
That earth's best friends may faithless prove o
But Christ's is an unchanging love!
Here let me fix my roving heart,
And never, never hence depart;
But sweetly leaning on bia breast,
Find here my everlasting rest.

Early Religious .Newspapers.
INDEPENDENCE, No., Oat. 25, 1858
DR. MOKI - NNEY—Door Sir : I have
noticed, in the New York Observer, that
Mr. Willis and Mr Morse, each; claim the
honor of having established the first relig
ions newspaper in the United States. The
truth is, neither of them has'any right to that
honor, the late Rev. John Andrews hav
ing a better claim to it than either of them.
The Boston Recorder, whioh they suppose
was the first religious newspaper in this
country, was established in the year 1816
In the year 1814, Mr. Andrews established
a religious newspaper at Chillicothe, Ohio,
called The Weekly Recorder. It was pre
cisely on the plan of the religious newspapers
of the present day, except that it was printed
in the Quarto form. A subscriber preserved
the fourth volume, whioh , has been in my
possession more than twenty years. Wheth
er or not more than the four volumes were
published at Chillicothe, I am not informed.
Mr. Andrews removed from Chillicothe to
Pittsburgh, and there published the Advo
cate, which was buts a continuation of .the
Recorder, with only a change of name,' and
the place of publication. The Bastin/. Ike.
corder having been established, may hive
been the reason why the name was ohanged.
'The Advocate has been' continued until the
present day; and'. by 'lke union with the
Banner, is now the Ban2yr and .AdViiiite,
of which you ere the editor., So that ' your
paper is, probablyythesoldest religious news
paper in the United States. . At- any rate, it
is certain that Mr: Andrews published the
Weekly Recorder, at Chillicothe; before "'the
Boston Recorder had existence.
Mr. Andrews baying lived so long in Pitts
burgh, I suppose
i yon would hav e little
trouble in ascertaining all the facts' con - cern- .
lug his newspaper 'enterprise and editorial
labors. I hope you will do so:; and . in jus
tioe to the memory of 'Mr. Andrews, publish"
the facts in your paper.• Should you pub
lish anything on the subject, I would be glad
to ace it.* Respectfully yours,
P. S —ln the year 1812, Dr. Jametl Fish
back, late of Lexington, Kentucky, became
the editor of a newspaper, at that place,
called The Western Monitor. He devoted
one page of the paper, exclusively to relig
ious intelligence. From this it would seem,
the Lord was preparing the way for' relig
ious newspapers. Christians were beginning
to see their importance. J.S.
[* The first religious newspaper in the United
States, as we noted last week, was published by
John W. Scott, in Philadelphia. We may .reour
to the subject again.—ED.], ,
For the Presbyterian Banner and Advocate.
Romance of Missions. .
The phrase, " Romance of Missions," is'
often misapplied. Thus it is 'often said that
missionaries and' earnest Christians who take
a deep interest in missions, and who mani
fest their faith and interest, and professions,
by corresponding deeds, are carried away by
the Romance of Missions. These words are
mostly found in the mouth of the world, and,
sometimes in the mouth of Christians,
(nominal at least,) who are ignorant, or slug
gish, or miserly. The miserly, especially,
in and out of' the Church, are troubled with
a strange obliquity of moral vision, super ! .
induced by their peculiar propensions. They,
much resemble their god Mammon, one of
Milton's fallen angels,
" —the least eteated spirit.that fell
From heaven; for e'en in- heaven his looks and
Were always downward bent, admiring more
The riches of heaven's pavement, trodden gold,
Than aught Divine or holy, else enjoyed
In the vision beatifio."
Such could not, perhaps be expected to
have clear, straight forward views, or high
and holy aspirations. As they are not
troubled much with deep, unselfish convic
tions of duty, having ,their origin in solid
substantial, sublime realities, and encour
aged by well grounded hopes; it may not
seem so•strange that they cannot nicely dis
What substance is and shadow what." ,
Let not terms be abused, however. Let
words have their proper Dictionary meaning. , l
Then shall be exemplified the maxim,
" /Sum Cuique," to every one his own.
What then is the proper application of:the.
expression? Is not this the Romance of.
Missions ; to profess Christianity with' its
requirements and obligations • to profess
union and communion with Christ, . and wil
lingness: to obey all his commands; to. aci•
knowledge the duty of carrying on the Mis•
'ion work vigorously, and yet doing nothing
corresponding ! To talk about 64 Macedo
nian cries ;" . 66 wide open doors ;" "con.
version of the Jews and bringing in of the
Gentiles ;" it hastenin2 the Millennium
glory ;" " wondeifpl and glorious prophe
cies - 7 " "great discoveries of Livingstone in
Africa ;" 64 the facilities of communication
with all parts of the world ;" 4 1 knowledge
running to and fro," &c. Yet never
responding to those cries, (how long have
they been crying !) or entering those doors,
or raising a Anger to hasten the glorious se- .
complishment,,, or to tt utak°, use .oft all , the
modern appliances and , , improvements.,::. To
yead•or hear descriptions of the sad,condition
of the millions of poor„perishing, yet immory

.yet go nothing for them. *pity the, peer

and yet never letting the eye of pity gaze,
(or perhaps letting: it gaze, without doing

worthy .of the name, to deliver those un
happy lands which have been calling, calling,

irony, thus to slog over the miseries, of man
kind..? But it is unnecessary to specify
more examples. Do they not show, what is
the genuine, reprehensible Itomanee of
Missions !
The Synod of Wheeling.
This body held its annual sessions in the Pres
byterian church of Washington, Pa., 'commencing
Oetober 19th, and closing on the 22d. ' Much
business of importance was transacted,,of which
the following items, are selected for publication,
by the Committee appointed for that, purpose:
Ths opening sermon was preached by the Rev.
John 13. Graham; Moderator of lest year. from
Acts vi: '244=- 4, For herwas a'good man, and ,full

4th. Its standard of scholarship. In view of this
state of facts, your Contnlttee submit; that God is
making this College an instrument of great good,
for which we shoUldblesti and praise hiECtiame.
rt. Report of the Fruste&
From this report we learn much of the state of
the College, in two aspect's. Its internal condition
appears,to be most gratifying. Its external, con
dition is not so encouraging. Still, it is not so
discouragingas to induce . despondency, as . to its
fiord and complete success, though its financial
affairs are such as to demand prompt :attention.
The indebtedness of the College to its Profeesors,
amounts to the sum of $3,816.20, To meetthis
debt, there are no fUnds at the disposal of the
Trustees. They, :therefore. justly look to this
Synod, (to whom it properly belongs,) to devise
and promptly to employ some efficient method,
whereby this liability may be met. • ,
Resolved, ,TIIM the Rev. James R. Hughes be
nominated as a Trtistee, in place of the Rev . . Dr.
Samuel Wilson, 'reeigned. f 7
In. Financial Agent's Report.
From this report we are gratified to learn,,that
notwithstanding the Severe monetary 'pressure,
felt in all the departments of business diming! .the
last-yearithe agent-has, by, .of scholar.
.ships. added , $5,590 to, the Termanent fund, and
has procured to the current expense fund, the sum
of $731.67, making a total of $6,321.67. 'Deduct
salary, traveling expenses, .Bzo., and we have a
pin to our funds,of $6,188 61.

From this exhibit, it is Manifest that: the Synod
has means, now justly undei its `control, 'and
subject to its order, sufficient*to meet its present
liabilities, and to afford ample encouragement for
the future. ~ It only remains to devise and carry
into effect some method by WhiCh the large out
standing debts, now due to the' College' Endow
ment Fund, may be collected and applied to
liquidate its liabilities now due, and becoming
due from time Co time. '
