Lines Written in a Friend's Bible.
Search ye the Word of Ood;
To his commando give heed;
Follow the steps which he has trod,
Let his example lead.
Search well, with earnest mind,
Here treasure is oonoealed
The priceless pearl you here may find
In this extended field.
Serach, too, with fervent prayer,
That God hie grace impart;
His wondrous love to you deelare,
Aud sanctify your heart.
Search daily, till you - hnow:
Your sins in Christ forgiven;
0, msy bin Spirit guide below,
And bring you safe to heaven.

Some months ago, it was my lot to be
ated in a car of a estern-bound train, in
'loll there were two drovers, on their way
Ime from the Eastern cities, where they
d been on business connected with their
:ular vocations. They were bold, inde
ndent, rough•mannered men—full of the
;nit of their calling; quite talkative, so
1, kind hearted, and really intelligent on
matters pertaining to the legitimate fenc
es of professional drovers. They had
owed this business for many years. Long
ore railroads in the West were thought
or the phrase, " shipping wattle ) " was
.rd of, they had marched many times,
wly, from Illinois to New York, behind
yes of fat bullooks, to the Eimind of an
asional crack of the whip, and the mond
us s Jog of the leader, Soo 0.0 o•o-ke!
listened, with much interest, to their
itals of many pleasing incidents that had
se under their observation, during so
ly years of travel. No Banker in Wall
set could use more glibly the beautiful
hnology of financial life, than they. Well
. they understand all about exchanges,
gifts, discounts, deposits,. cheeks, " paper
tuning," matured, &o,; &e. And no ped
, with his pack; bad ever been in more
chens '
farmhouses!, hovels, or talked to
re old women, or olose.fisted men, than
They were alike at home in the wild

crowded, noisy (tattle markets of the

d read much; and I. felt, they iware v jusiit
sh instructors as an inexperienced person,
I was, needed. I got much from them,
their line; and then I gave them some
return, in mine. They listened with as
:Doh respect to me, as I had done with
iusement to them. They said::"You
k, sir,
' about drovers praying—we confess
rswear more than 'we pray. We ought
t to do so, but it's our habit." "That
ekes it none the less a sin," said we. To
is they assented; and immediately replied :
But there are many of you professed
aristians that don'nt pray; and when you
it mad, you will let slip some bard
Ards, too." "How do you know .that ?"
Know ?—We have heard more swearing
unog professors at the stands,' where we
op over-night, than we ever heard, pray
ig 1"
Having a perfect knowledge of the per
ms who kept the • "stands," on a certain
rove-route, for a distance of over twenty
ilea, I named them all in order, beginning
rest; asking, "Does not Mr. A. pray in
is family when you stop with him over.
ight ?" " No." "Nor Mr. B. ?" " No."
Nor Mr. 0. ?" " No." "Nor Mr. D. ?"
No, never." "Does Mr. Jesse ?"
Yes," they both exclaimed, at the same
:start, "Jesse does pray with us, always.
od bless " Jesse ;" for if there is a good
ad honest man above ground, "Jesse" is
oe. When we turn in with him for the
ight, lie always reads a chapter in the
lible, singe a 'hymn, and prays with us all
efore we go to bed. And no man can
lake a better prayer than he." Here one of
iem said: "Yes, that's so; I've heard it
len, and often—l know it almost by-heart.
no of my men took sick once, in Bahl
ire, and we thought he would die. He
ked me to pray tor him. I tried to, but
lade a dog of an out,' till I thought I
mild try and repeat Jesse's' prayer. I
said some of it, but it did n't sound much like
Jesse' praying ! After I was through, I
felt like a fool ; but the poor, sick felloW said,
"I wish Jesse was here. I do love him.
He's the best man on the road."
"That's so," said the other. "For the
first day or two after my droves leave the
stand, my hands talk about his honesty
and we all feel that if -we were to let him
measure out all the corn himself, he would
not cheat us out of a grain. What a strict
fellow be is, too, on Sunday. He don't like
to keep us on Saturday night. If it so
happens that we must stay, we always settle
our bills before retiring, and when we start
in the morning, we do it as quietly as pos
sible, for, we don't want so hurt Jesse's
feedings. And when we get off, and atop , to
rest our cattle under the shade, we talk
about Jesse, for all of us feel that he 'a the
best soul alive."
" He is known all over the West among
drovers es ' praying Jesse;' and when I
return and meet any of them, they will soon
unk, Did you stop at Jesse's ! ! How is he ?
This would be a good world if .all were like
him."
I listened to all this, and far more, with
great interest. Now, reader, if you are not
"Jesse," ought you not to be, at least as
far as his apirit of devotion is concerned ?
He lets his lightsbine, He is not ashamed'
of Jesus. He his his reward. Think. of
the influence he is Ozerting for good on
hundreds of rustic drovers—men who have
a rough exterior, and engaged in a rough
business, it is true, but men who, as a gen
eral thing, have kind hearts, and minds
filled with shrewd discrimination. They
can,see when professors neglect their duty;
end such negligence not only:brings reproach •
4r•ro
on the cause of Christ, but suspicion on the
integrity of the individual guilty of it. 0,
if all professors were only as faithful as
"praying Jesse," what an influence for
good would the Church exert upon the
world! Too many of us hide our candle
under a bushel. Bow dreadful the thought
that any professor "should become a stum
bling block over which sinners may tumble
to perdition.. ..rarents may be so to their
children ; teachers to their pupils; „stu
dents to one another • hosts to their guests;
ministers to their flocks; the Church to the
world. Let us be more faithful and firm,
embracing every opportunity to do, and re
ceive good; and then , will we - grow in holi
ness, as well as in favor with God and man. ,
Never can I forget the 'impression ma&
upon my mind by these drovers, committing:

of A gni , iesi.v. ) S. Isl.:Evans, l .6n" the 30th
.day ofrSepteniber, 1858; cut down in the , prime of
life, and whilst faithfully laboring in Ake field;
and, realizing the greatness of the loss to, the
Church at large, to the respective churches in
which they were laboring, and to their families
in particular; and ourselves, at this- present
meeting of Synod, being deprived of their pres
ence and counsel, and fraternal intercourse ;
therefor e, Resolve, That while we bow in submission to
the stroke of an All- wise Providence in.their re
moval from the Church on earth, it is in the firm
faith of their translation to the services of- the
Church in heaven, and in the humble hope that
other laborers may be raised up in their stead, to
work in the earthly field.
Resolved, That this Synod does mingle its sym
pathies with those of the bereaved families and'
friends of the deceased brethren, and does hum
bly pray and trust that the blessed consolations of
the Gospel may be afforded them and ourselves,
in view of the present bereavement.

which was adopted, and is as follows :
The Committee to whom was referred the Cir
cular from the Executive Committee of the Board
of Foreign Mission's, report thereon for the con
eideratien of Synod, the following resolutions :
Resolved, That in the restoration of compara
tive peace in India, and the resumption of mis
sionary labor, where it had beeninterrupted, we
recognize the answer of prayer—while God's peo
ple were praying, he . heard, and answered—and
we desire to offer fervent thanksgiving for this,
his great goodness.'
Resolved, That we render thanks to God for the
answer to his people's prayers; in throwing open
to the Church the whole of China, Central Africa,
South America, Japan, and . other parts of the
heathen world—all invitingtelds, and calling for
immediate occupation.
Resolved, That the providence of God now, as
well as his Word always, calls upon us more
loudly than ever before, to lift up our eyes and
look upon the fields white for the harvest, and to
pray the Lord of the harvest to send forth the la
borers ; and that, in view of the need of thousands
of Gospel Messengers to go everywhere, entering
these open doors, we recommend much prayer for
this object, and especially the observance of the
day appointed by the General Assembly, the
Fourth Thursday of Febrpary, as a day of prayer
for Colleges, and Institutions of learning.
Resolved, That in view of the fallitig off In the
receipts of the Board at the time when there are
demands for increased expenditures, we recom
mend all our pastors and stated supplies to pre
sent the subject often to their people;.that they
afford them frequent opportunities to contribute
to this object. And - in order that all the people
may be reached, and all the mites gathered up,
we recommend that, at suitable times, when-they
preach in school houses, and at outstations, they
present the cause of Foreign Missions, and take
up collections.
Resolved, That in view of the fact that only
about half of our churches contribute anything
to 'Foreign Missions, Presbyteries be advised to
instruct the occasional supplies to their vacant
churches, to present this subject, and call for ,u
collection on such a day as Presbytery may ap. !
point.
Resolved, That in some measure we appreciate
the many labors, trials, and discouragements of
those excellent and devoted men, the secretaries
and other officers of the Board of Missions;, that
we assure them of our sympathy, and that we
promise them and the cause which they serve,
our prayers and our earnest co-operation, teeing
that they are serving us, and hoping that they
may not be discouraged by our past lukewarm
noes.
Resolved, That we urge the distribution, in all
our families, of the Rome and Foralen Record;
and that the children be educated and encouraged
in the same good work, in the manner now
adapted in many congregations, where collections
are made statedly in the Sabbath Schools; and
the 'Foreign Missionary paper be distributed so
as to place a copy in every family which is repre
sented in said schools.
Resolved, That we do thank the Lord for what
we hear of the power of the Gospel, in turning
many Unto the Lord, iu,nearly all our missionary
fields, during, the past year; and we will pray for
larger blessings, even that converts may be mul
tiplied like drops of morning dew; and that we
will encourage the people of, our charges to re
member this cause in their prayers; and wherev
er it is practicable, we recommend the observance

The affair of the BAPTISM OF A CEWISH
CHILD, . Mortara, in Italy, continues to ,
elicit strong-feeling. The Univers shame
lessly continues to' defend the act, and worse
still, the officiat journal in Rome itself, does
the same. It deplores the existence of
opinion within the Chinch, Which f stands
up, not for "the rights of the Church," but
for " the Pagan prejudices of Modern so
ciety." It, complains that. every thing, in
the opinion ofr such Catholics, gives way to
ideas of personal liberty, and that they
"Wont submit' themselves'to " the Sovereign
dominion of Christ." In answer, to--such
statemente, a French journal says : " If, at
Rome, all those are declared to be Pagans
who'think that natural right should , always
and everywhere prevail—that the - father,
who has`done nothing to forfeit these rights,
cannot, without injustice, be deprived 'of
his paternal power, and that the child can
not be lawfully or rightfullY detained in a
covenant against his own and' his father's
will—we , deolare.ourselves Pagan."
The "fraudulent.character of Apiary with
her intense blindness and st,iperatifiofi, have,
come out in quite a new aspect. This is One

THE EMPEROR OF THE FRENCH has vir
tually abandoned the Slicve-trade system
which he had adopted, and which, in the
Collision with' Portugal,' tie seethed` deter-
mined to. continue. The Presse,, and other
Governmentjournals,contra‘dieted those Eng
lish journals , which, declared, that he-.would
abandon the " emigrant " 'scheme, 'and an
grily declared, that while khuses would be
corrected, it would be perpetuated. His
conduct toward Portugal had' disgusted En
rope ; nay, more, alarmed all men who
looked for and desired the general tranquil- .
ity. The Emperor has disedvered his error,
and doubtless has been -hclerrto that' dis
covery by the political di approbation 'of
English politicians, of all: shadesi
the, urgent remonstrances of his, confidential
friends, in or out of the British; Cabinet.
And so he writes to his," dear cousin," the
Printe Napoleon, declaring' that heliid the
‘9iveliest desire," after the termination:Of
the: difference with Portugal,' that " the
question of the engagement of free laborers
on the African coast should be,definitively
examined, and - finally settled on` the truest
principles of humanity and justice:" .
justifies his demand. Ott , !Portugal frdirchis
determination " always to maintain' intact
the independence of the i nationalltag." But
as to "the engagement of ,the itegroes,.
ideas are far from being 'settled if,
truth, laborers on the African coast are not
allowed the exercise ottheir free and
if this enrollthent is the sla.-ve:trade in dis
guise, I will haveit on no terms, for It is
not I, who will anywhere protectenterprises
contrary to progress; to. humanity, and'
civilization."
The "if" here put, receives- its, best
comment in, the fact, that very recently the
f' emigrants " on board 'one of those French
ships- rose -on the cantm.----

Emperor's "if" is merely to let hiniself
gently down from a false position, and so, is'
his. command to his cousin "to seek out the
truth." For immediately , he. adds "
the best method for putting an end to what
is a continual cause of dispute,-would - be' to
substitute the free labor of Indian coolies
fur that of the negroes, I :beg- you to: come
to an understanding with the : Minister, of
Foreign Affair's to resume with the English,
Goiernment the negotiations, which were
entered on a few months
As to Coolie Etnigration, it hasheerrtried
practically in the Mauritius, and Australia..:
'But the, political significance of •,Nal:toleon's
resolve is important and gratifying. It is a
tribute to the power of European opinion.
The Times Says : "We shall . .not 'oomph;
'Dent ;the Emperor on hisietter. Retreat
from a false position is no doubt, ise, but it
may be too-long deferred to command ad
miration and sympathy. , The-English pub
lic, deeply moved by the lawlessness" of the
recent proceedings, will look upon` the pres
ent act only with a Cold satisfaction!' That
is just and true, but it is a satisfaction'more
than " cold," to find a man . , so imperious,
compelled to' tiummaib to general iadigna.
tion 'and disapproval. He was obliged to
do the same inr the dietatory tone assumed
afterthe attempt at assassination, and Eit
rope is strong enough to compel•the amende
honorable, should the necessity arise again.
"The-peace of Europe is not- to :be lightly:
disturbed," and provocations-'sash :as: this
must not continue. " The moral retribution
which =such acts receive,- must be , depended
on as a guarantee 'against their' frequent
repetition!.
TICE PRESENTATION OE THE FUNERAL
CAR, of Napoleon 1., to. France, by,the Eng
lish Government,
,tvas rosolt7ed on some time
ago, when the alliance feeling toward France
was-in the ascendant. Bat the car, which
had taken the remains of. Napoleon limn
Longwood to thegrove- prepared -for them,
was in; a, dilapidated—condition, and so the
upholsterers were set ; to work upen ;it ) ; and
took such a time , to dotheir work, thatonly
just now. the ,presentation has been. made.,
The car gas drawn through the streets .of
Paris, scarcely.noticed;.- it was taken to the
Hotel lavalid,es by. Genetal Burgoyne, who
spoke, kindly words in , the Queen's
and in the presenee of some of the old , sol
diers .of-the .first Empire; it ,was accepted
by Prince Napoleon, .frourthe Queen, 6 ‘#:
a testimony of her desire to efface the poign
ant remembrances .of St. Helena."
.
The. Buonapartists say that lhe ,Qaecn, .
when she visited Paris in .1865, shed some,
tears as she stood beside Napoleon'a tomb.
We cannot say whether this is true. She
was trained among the Whig and Alt
tohool of politicians,..who abused Sir Ilud
son Lowe, ,the:Guvernor of St. Elelena, for
his alleged,harshness to his captive.. O'lVl.ea.
ra's narrative. of conversations with - the'Efil=
perm., also hid its effect at the: time.' , Bur
the Queen never could approve; of the cazeer
of the man whom your own Ohanning has f.
so powerfully and truthfully painteshas
monster of selfishness, whom the late
Robert Peel described as having Win'
"always the virulent enemy of England',"
and as having " brokenevery oath whichle
had made." More than this, it now comes
ant—proved by 'documents in the.. Imperial
Library of Paris, whieh'prove that even the
petty grievances of, his, household, to which
he drew such attention, were the Products

At, the recent_ of the Evatigelical
Allianc, an expression of reprobation of the
conduct`of Ramie in this mattar,'and - of sym
pathy with the Jewish hinny-on-which the
outrage was, perpetrated, was. , unanimously
agreed to. It is most important that the
Jews should feel and, know that. Protestant
