Thoughts Suggested While Standing by
the Grave of a Departed Brother.
Thou 'II gone, dear brother, and thy place is void,
But left thy name without one blot alloyed;
Now passed from human sight, thy lose we mourn,
Bat yet the justice of our God we own.
Here, with a confidence devoid of gloom,
Thy friends consigned thee to thy silent tomb;
Assured thine ashes should at last arise,
To join thy spirit in the upper skies.
Fondly we ponder o'er thy varied worth,
Thy love of souls and labors while on earth;
Thy heaven-taught worth to mind we fondly call,
Bat on whose shoulders shall thy mantle fall ?
Oft from the sacred desk thy voice was heard,
Proclaiming Jeans as the Lamb of God,
And pointing sinners to those realms above,
Where all is light, and all that light is love.
While Oxford's denizens, as 'round they sit,
In frequent converse oft thy name repeat;
Thy loving pupil oft to mind recalls
How oft thy voice has filled Miami's Halls.
Thy care, thy merit, and thy matchless skill,
Are all remembered by thy pupils still;
Miami's Halls in retrospect will be
A place revered, when e'er they think of thee.
Now freed from toil, in other realms , to move,
Thy soul untrammeled, feasts on endless love;
From sphere 'to sphere, throughout th' etherea
Thy theme shall ever be thy Maker's praise
Redeemed, thy spirit "midst celestial throngs,
On Golden Rarp, which to thy. God bgtiongs,
In sweetest chorus with th' angelic host,
To rival them in praises be thy boast.
Thy memory still, while life remains to me,
Kept in my heart shall ever fondly be,
With kind remembrance and with ardent love—
Farewell, deaibrother, till we meet above.

The Laws of Noses.
In a former article on this subject, I en
deavored to show that the distributiOn of
the preceptive portions of the Pentateuch
into three distinct codes—the Moral, the
Ceremonial, and the Judicial—is not only
warranted, but highly important. And
some considerations were then adduced, to
show that the moral code of Moses is oblig
atory on Christians, no less than on the an
To give additional force to these consid
erations, and to aid us in distinguishing
moral from ceremonial and judicial precepts,
let us inquire what was the design of that
part of the law of Moses which we call
moral ? for what purpose was it given to the
Israelites? what end did God intend to ao
complish by revealing it to them
He •certainly did not intend, in this re
newed revelation of the law of nature, to en
courage that people to seek justification in
the eight of God, by a compliance withits de
mands; to expect acceptance with him, by
performing the righteousness which it re
quires. It was as true then as now, that
the law could not give life, and that by the
deeds of the law, no flesh could be jus
tified in the sight of God. It was the great
mistake of the carnal Jews, that they looked
to the law for justification, regarded it as
given for that purpose, and hence went
about to establish their own righteousness.
In they New Testament we are very explic-
Wry taught, that in this they utterly misap
prehended the design of the law, utterly
mistook' the end for which it was revealed.
which followed after the "law of
righteousneari, hath not attained to the law
of righteousness. Wherefore ? Because
they sought it not by faith, but as it were
by the works of the law. For they stum
bled at that stumbling atone." That the
law intended in this and other passages of
like import, is the moral law exclusively, I
do not affirm ; but that it is included and
mainly intended, is too plain to require
If, then, the Jews were not encouraged
to such justification by obedience to the
moral law, for what purpose -was it revealed
to them ? What was the end which God
designed to accomplish in publishing it from
Mount Sinai, inscribing it on stone, and di.
rooting it to be laid up in the ark 7 Was it
not to servnas the standard of moral reeti
tude, the guide of conscience, the rule by
which to determine what is right, and what
is wrong ? Was it not to show them how
great was their guilt, how deep their de
pravity, and how urgent their need of that
Mediator whom they were taught to expect?
In a word, was it not to shut them up to
the faith, and, as a schoolmaster, to bring
them to. Christ; and, having answered this
purpose, to show them what they ought to
be, and what they must become, in order to
the enjoyment of God ? And are not ihese
the purposes which the moral law is intend
ed to answer now Do not we need it just
as much as the Jews did, and for the very
same purposes? "By the law is the
knowledge of sin ;" and thin knowledge is
needed by Jew and Gentile alike; it is just
as necessary and important for those who
have lived since, as for those who lived be
fore the advent.
Let us next consider the nature and de
sign of the Ceremonial Law. In this code,
as was remarked before, the Jews were con
templated, not merely as men, but as a pe
culiar people, called out from the world and
dedicated to God aa his , worshippers. It
prescribed, therefore, the manner In which,
and the ordinances and rites by which they
were to worship him. Ita design was, in
the first place, to serve as a rule by which
they were to order all the exercises of Di
vine worship. But it had a further, and
still more important end or purpose, viz., to
instruct them, to make them acquainted
with the way of salvation. The rites and
ordinances which the law enjoined, were
significant; they were shadows of good
things to come. This was undoubtedly the
leading design of the ceremonial code.
The priesthood, the sacrifices, and alined
every thing connected with the tabernacle
or temple service, were intended to instruct
the worshippers respecting the necessity of
a Mediator to stand between them and God,
who had been offended by their sins, and to
offer sacrifice' and intercede , on their behalf.
And these institutions were all adapted to
fOreshadow the priesthood of Christ, ■nd his
one offering of himself as the substitute of
believing sinners. There are some parts of
the Ceremonial law which were intended to
keep :thee Jews separate from all other peo
ple; but. there are many of its provisions
*Nell appear to have been designed solely
to teaoh them the defiling nature of sin, and
the necessity of moral purity in those who
draw near to God. The "divers washings,"
the distinction of meats, the treatment of
leprosy in persons, in dwellings,. and in
clothing, the cleansing required after having
been near a corpse, and other laws of this
kind, if they had any other design than the
instruction of the worshippers in the odious
ness of sin, and necessity of holiness, it was
subordinate, and comparatively unimport
Indeed, the ceremonial law was the Gos
pel of the Old Testament Church. This is
shown at large in the Epistle to the Hebrews.
That those of them only who were taught
of the Spirit, ever understood its real im
port, is very true. But it is just as true,
that the same things ' now, though more
clearly revealed, are not, and cannot be per
ceived in their true nature and importance,
without the teaching of the Spirit. " The
natural man receiveth not the things of the
Spirit of God : for they are foolishness unto
him ; neither can he know them, because
they are spiritually discerned." The cere
monial law is still institutive, though as a
rule of worship it was abrogated, when He
whom it foreshadowed, appeared. It ought
by no means to be thrown aside as useless.
When studied in the light of the New Tes
tament, it not only shows the harmony of
the Divine dispensations, and the oneness of
the way of salvation from the beginning, but
it imparts, additional light, to some of the
doctrines of the Gospel.
Let us now turn our attention to the Ju
dicial code. All that has hitherto been said,
'was with 'a view to open the way. for some
remarks respecting the nature and design of
this part of the law of Moses. Thiflaw,
as was remarked before, Contemplated the
Jews as a political community—a common
wealth. It is true that their civil polity was
intended to be subservient to their ecclesi
astical. That they should be an independ
ent nation, not mingled with other nations,
or subject to their laws, was necessary, not
only to preserve them from prevailing idola-
try, but that they might bring into the
world, in such a way as to verify the prom
ises and prophesies, and thus make him
known, that Seed of Abraham in whom all
the types and .promises have their accom
plishment. But, if an independent nation,
they must, as such, have a oivil government
and laws by which individual rights might
be defined and secured, the weak protected
from oppression by the strong, and crimes
against the peace and good order of society,
restrained and punished.
To this nation, Jehovah proposed or offer
ed himself as their civil Ruler or King. In
Exodus xix :'4-6, we read," Ye have seen
what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I
bore you on eagle's wings, and brought yeu
unto myself.. Now, therefore, if ye will
hear my voice indeed, and keep my cove
nant, then ye Shall be a , peculiar treasure
unto me above all people.' The nature of
the covenant here referred to, may be seen
by a reference to Deut. xxix : 10-18,
The general sense of this transaction is
plainly to this effect : if the Hebrews would
voluntarily receive Jehovah . for their King,
and would honor and worship him as the one
true God, in opposition to all idolatry, then,
though God, as Sovereign of the \ world,
rules over all the nations of the earth, he
would govern the Hebrew nation by laws of
his own framing, and would bless it with a
more particular and immediate protection."
Wines. This proposal was accepted by a
unanimous vote of the people. " And all the
people answered together, and said, All that
the Lord hath spoken, we will do."—Ex. xix
8. They virtually ,elected the Lord to be
their King, and promised obedience to him
as such. Hence their government is called
a theocracy. This must be .kept constantly
in view in order to understand the distinc
tive nature of the judicial code. In it, the
Law-giver speaks, not as the Moral Govern
or of the world, not as the Head of the
Church, but as the King or Civil Ruler of
How may we distinguish the p:ecepti
which belong to this code, from those
which are moral or ceremonial ? From
what has already been said, it is evident
that judicial precepts may, without much
difficulty, be distinguished from ceremonial,
by the subject-matter. The latter pointed
out the times, places, manner, and ordi•
names of Divine worship, so far as they
were peculiar to that period, or that people;
the former defined the duties of the Jewish
magistrate, and furnished the rule by which
he was to be guided in administering jus
tice, and maintaining public order.
The difficulty of distinguishing judicial
from moral precepts is much greater, be
cause the subject -matter is often the same.
In other words, the same , act is, in many
oases, prohibited in both these oodee—both
might be violated by the same act; as a
violation of the moral law, it would be a
sin; as a violation of the judicial, it would
be a crime, a felony, an offence against the
commonwealth. As a violation of the
moral law, the magistrate had nothing to do
with the punishment of it; as a violation of
the judicial law, it was his duty to inflict
the prescribed penalty. There are provi
sions in the judicial law relating to some of
the acts prohibited in each of the precepts
of the Decalogue, with the single exception
of the tenth; bat the *act is forbidden in
the former case, not as it is a sin against God,
but as it is an Offence against the peace and
welfare of society. In distinguishing be
tween moral and judicial precepts, therefore,
we are not to be guided by the subject
matter alone, or, the act prohibited, but we
must consider also the manner, circum
stances and reasons of the prohibition.
The following rules, in connexion with the
observations heretofore made, may aid as in
determining satisfactorily to which of these
two codes a given precept belongs.
Ist. Moral precepts are usually delivered
in the !mound person singular, e. g., " Thou
shalt have• no other gods before me ;" ju
dicial precepts in the third, e. g., "He
that smiteth a man so that he die," &c.
Let any one read attentively, at one sitting,
from the beginning of the twentieth to the
close of the twenty-third chapter of the
book of Exodus, and he will be struck with
the change from the second to the third
person, when the sacred writer enters upon
the delivery of the judgments, i. e., judi
cial laws. Nor is it difficult to discover the
reason of this change from the second to
the third person, in passing from moral to
judicial precepts. The former, being in
tended to be the guide of conscience, are
addressed to every individual man; the
latter, being intended as the guide of the
Jewish magistrate in administering justice,
are usually addressed to him, and the party
supposed to be arraigned before him, is the
third person of whom the law speaks.
It must be admitted that judicial laws, in
some cases, are delivered in the second per
son. But even when this is the case, the
law,it is believed, is addressed to the mag
istrate, or at leaat intended to guide him,
and not the conscience of •the individual
citizen; e. g, in Matt. v : 38, 39, we read,
"Ye have heard that it hath been said, An
eye for , an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.
But I say unto you, that ye resist not evil."
The reference here is evidently to the ju
dicial law recorded in Exodus xxi :-23-25 :
"Thou shalt give life for life, eye for eye,
tooth for, tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot,
burning >for 'burning, wound for wound,
THE PRESBYTERIAN BANNER AND ADVOCATE
stripe for stripe." Now, how are we to un
derstand our Lord in the passage just quoted
from the Sermon on the Mount? Did he
intend to set aside or repeal the law given
by Moses, and introduce a stricter rule of
duty? Or did he intend to set aside a false
interpretation of the law, and state what
had always been the duty of the individual
man under personal injuries ? To me, it
appears unquestionable that this last was his
intention. It seems that the law in ques
tion had been interpreted by some, at least,
of the Jewish Doctors, to authorize private
revenge, and this was probably the popular
understanding of the law at that period.
The great Teaeher pronounces this an utter
misapprehension of the meaning of the Jaw.
It was not addressed to the individual in
; it did not authorize him to avenge
himself; it was addressed to the magistrate,
and prescribed the penalty which he was to
inflict, after a judicial
,investigation of the
case. The rule of duty, which is to guide
the conscience, is to be sought, he here
gives us to understand, in another law, viz.,
that which is fulfilled by love. In a word,
the general rule to which, it is admitted,
there are exceptions, is, that moral precepts
are delivered in the second' person, and ju
dicial precepts in the third.
2dly. In moral precepts the Lawgiyer
simply commands or forbids; judicial
precepts he %Sully prescribes temporal pains
and penalties for the violation of 'his law.
Here, also, the reason - is obVious. • The
moral law is not to be' administered, or its
penalty executed by man. None but the
'Searcher of hearts is competent to try men
by that law; none but the Almighty can in-
flict its penalty. It was not necessary,
,therefore, to specify the penalty for every
violation of that law; it was aufficient to
declare once for all, and this has been done
in the threatening addressed' to our first
parents, that the wages of sin, the penalty
of the moral law, is death. But the judi
cial law was to be administered, and its pen
alty executed by the Jewish magistrate.
He needed, therefore, a specific rule, and
the law furnished such a rule—it provided
specific penalties for every violation of its
demands, except in a few cases of compara
tively light offences in relation to which his
power was discretionary—" he shall be pun
ished as the judges shall deiermine." But,
although the- magistrate was authorized to
inflict puniehment for many things that were
sinful, the punishment of sin was not, and
indeed could not be committed to him; it
was as felonies,, as 'against the peace, and
dignity, and good order of society, that he
was to punish such acts. Has 'not inatten
tion.to. this obvious distinction had some
thing to do in leading infidels, and some
who are not infidels, to maintain that Moses,
and the people to whom he gave laws, knew
nothing of a future life—that his laws ut
terly ignored a future state of rewards and
3dly. There is still another criterion to
which it will often be necessary to resort,
viz., the reason or end of a given precept.
When the obvious reason or end of any en
actment is something peculiar to the relation
in which the Hebrews stood, the circum
stances in which they were placed, or the
end for which they were separated, and to
be kept separate from other nations, we may
safely conclude, that so far-as it depends on
such reasons, it does not belong to the moral
code. Suppose, e. g., the question were
raised, whether the law respecting usury,
i. e., compensation for the use of money
loaned, was moral or judicial. The obvious
purpose of that law was to prevent the Jews
from becoming a commercial people., or en
tering largely into commerce with other na
tions, which would, in their circumstances,
have proved a snare to idolatry, and militate
in other ways against the ends which Prov
idence designed to accomplish by them.
Not this provision only, but many others in
their civil code, were intended, for this
reason, to make. them a pastoral and agri
cultural, rather than a commercial people.
There can, therefore, be no reasonable doubt,
that the law in question was one of their
judgments, or civil laws. M.

DEAR ObiLDREN :—You have all, doubt
less, seen the comet, and heard that it
is a light body floating in the air with great
rapidity; and that its tail is supposed to be
fifteen millions of miles in length.
Would you like to hear what a little boy,
three years of age, thought when he first
saw it ? He exclaimed, in broken, child
like accents, "0 beautiful, its the angels way
in heaven." The next morning, on awaking,
he said " he thought the comick must be
the road for good people to go up to heaven
The Bible tells us, dear children, that
there is a way to heaven, and that it is,
pleasant, and all its paths are peace. Are
you sure that you are in that safe and pleas
ant road. If so, there is not only .a harp of
gold, and a beautiful crown ready for you,
as you enter the pearly gates, but a mansion
which Christ has prepared for you there.
Now there - are several , ways that I fear
some children are walking in, which lead to
a place very different from heaven. One of
them is the way of disobedience. This will
prevent their ever entering that happy land.
Another is the way of pride, which ends in
darkness and despair. A third is a road
for the indulgence of evil tempers, leading
to certain destruction. A fourth is the
path of idleness, in which the souls of all
who remain in it will be lost. There are
many other• roads leading to eternal death.
Let me entreat you, as you value your
precious 'undying skis, to walk in the
bright, narrow path with the dear Saviour,
the children's friend; then, and not till then,
can you be safe.

An ApaMug Contrast.
Rev. Dr. Murray, of Elizabethtown,
writes thus of his first visit to the Fulton
Street prayer-meeting :
As I glanced upon the high brick stores
in Ann Street, the memories of other days
rushed in upon me. Where those brick
stores now rise, upwards of thirty years ago
there stood some wooden buildings, of very
lowly pretensions. In an upper room of one
of them, there dwelt an old colored woman,
then widely known as Aunt Betsy, or Sarah
—which, I now forget.. She vas. very.
old, and very feeble, and remarkably pious.
And some young men, mostly from the Pres
byterian and Methodist churches, held a
prayer-meeting in her room on each Sabbath
afternoon, as she was too infirm to attend
on any of the public means of grace.
While, absorbed for a moment in these
recollections, I was awakened from my
revery by a familiar voice, in fervent exhor
tation. It was that of-one who is now one
of the princely merchants of New York,
but in his youth he was one of the young
men who met for prayer in the room of
Aunt Betsy, and his wife was< one of the
little girls who, as the ravens did to Elijah,
carried to her daily food I .

company, and when I was first invited to
join the circle in the room of Aunt Betsy,
was, not a communicant of the Church. '
These statements were made in the prayer
meeting, and after Dr. Murray bad eat down, a
man rose in another part of the room, his trem
ulous accents showing the feelings that were
within him. "I have, ".

Something for those who Wish to be
A truth which we have often appreciated
is beautifully expressed in the following :
As we were about to start, I saw the cap
tain move to an elevated position above the
wheel; and it was interesting to see how
quickly and completely the inward thought
or purpose' alters the outward man. He
gave a quick glance to every part of the
ship. He cast his eye over the multitude
coming on board the ship, among whom was
the American Ambassador to England,
who, if the captain may be said to embody
the ship, may be said with equal truth to
embody in his.official person a nation's right
and honor.. He .saw the husbands and
wives, the mothers and children, intrusted
to his care, and his slender form, as he gave
the orders for our departure, seemed at once
to grow more erect and firm; the muscles
of his face swelled ; his dark eye glowed
with a new fire; and his whole person ex
panded and beautified itself by the power of
inward emotion. I have often noticed this
interesting phenomenon, and have come to
the conclusion if man, or woman either,
wishes to realize the full power of personal
beauty, •it must be by cherishing noble
hopes and purposes—by having something
to do and something to live for which is
worthy of humanity,
,and which, by ex
panding the capacities of the soul, gives
expansion and symmetry to the body which
contains it,Professor Upham.
What Kills Ministers.
Rev. Dr. Adams, of the Madison Square
Presbyterian church, in a recent discourse,
referred to the apprehension entertained by
some, that the present religious awakening
would result in injury to*the ministers, from
the extra demands upon their exertions.
"But," said the Doctor, "no greater mis 7
take could be imagined. I can tell you
what it is that kills the Christian minister.
It is to labor Sabbath after Sabbath, and
year after year, and see no fruit follow his
labors ; to preach only to dull ears, and

A Lunar Tide upon• Lake Michigan.
The Annual Meeting of the Chicago His

Street. Among other important facts com
municated, Col. Graham states, as the result
of a long and carefully conducted series of
observations, his disooyory of a lunar tide
wave upon Lake Michigan: From the eom
paratiVely small area ofdhe body of water
acted upon by the lunar influence, the co
ordinate of the altitude could not be but
!mall. This circumstance, added to that of
the almost constant disturbance of the lake
surface by winds, renders this co-ordinate of
altitude measurable only in cold weather,
and when the moon is in conjunction with
or in opposition to the sun. At such times
its average is about of a foot, or
say two and a half inches. This announce

Their unprecedented popularity
has induced the proprietors,
to dispose of their Drug business,
in which they have been success
fully engaged for the last Twenty
Years, and they will now give their
undivided time and attention to
their manufacture. And being de
termined that Dr. M'Lane's Cele
brated Vermifuge and Liver Pills
shall continue to occupy the high
position they now hold among the
great remedies of the day, they
will continue to spare neither time
nor expense in procuring the Best
and Purest material, and com
pound them in the most thorough
manner. Address all orders to
