4 1:netrg, Tor the Presbyterian. Banner and Advocate. 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 space, 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. D.M. Ett : For the Presbyterian Banner and Advocate 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 cient Jews. 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 proof. 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 ant. 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 Israel. 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 punishments ? 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. tor tie Mang. For the Presbyterian Banner and Advocate 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 on." 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. New Haven, Conn., October 8, 1858. 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 . One of thew rose to eminence - u an ao. emplished writer and editor, and for years has served hkreountry and the cause of Pro testantism with distinction, as a Minister at a foreign court. Another of them is an Es,Mayor of the City of New York, whose hand has never been withheld from any work of religion or philanthropy. Another is the honored partner of one of the largest publishing houses of the city of hie residence. Another of them has risen to eminence as a merchant, and is a pillar in oue of the most important congregations in the British Isles. Another is alio a well known merchant of New York who has a heart for every good work. Another, is. a useful minister in the Western States, whose labors have been eminently blessed in turning many to right. eonsness. I was myself. among the youngest of the 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, ". said he, " recently visi ted the prison at Sing Sing. As I went from cell to cell, I met with an old man who told me a very different story from that just narrated. He said that *Wen youffg he was one Of a company who formed an infidel club, and who met once a week for talking itildelity,'gambling, and drinking, not very far-from the upper room of Aunt Betsy. And was shocked as he told me of the end to which his companions came. " One," said he, died by his own hand ; another by the band of violence,; some in the State Prison; some of de. //num • tremenit; and as far as I know,• I am the only one of them surviving ; and here am lin the garb, and daily at the work of a felon."—Ex. isreilantzus. Something for those who Wish to be Beautiful. 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 appeal to hearts that are hardened against the truth." This we know to be true. It is always easy for the pastor to .work where good results are visible on every hand, and always, hard, when he has occasion to say, "who bath believed our report, and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed ?"—N. Y. Chronicle. Emigration. The number of emigrants that arrived in New York for the week ending the 15tb1 inst., was 598—making a total of 75,989' since the commencement of the year. The arrivals for a corresponding period in 1857, numbered 182,082. The effect of the finan cial revulsion, both in this country and abroad, is plainly to be seen in the remark. able falling off in the tide of emigration since last year. The total up to January Ist, 1859, will probably not be over 77,000, while that of 1857 was about 183,000. It is less than 25 per cent. of the emigration for 1854, which reached the magnificent figure of 319,000. In that prosperous se ries of years, from 1853 to 1858, the emi gration amounted to about 860,000—0 r enough to populate a large State. A Lunar Tide upon• Lake Michigan. The Annual Meeting of the Chicago His torical Society was held reoently, at the house of the Hon. I. N. Arnold, on Erie 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 ment will be a matter of great interest to the scientific world gemerally.—'--G7ticago Jour nal. British Enterprise. It is said to beihe purpose of the British Government to conistruct a railroad from the head waters of the SaskatChewan river to the waters of the Pacific in the Frazer's river region. Three gentlemen, connected with the Canadian Government, started for London upon this business, several weeks ago. Siege of Sebastopol. General Niel, of the Engineers, has just published "Journal of the Siege of Sebas topol." During the 'Siege, which lasted three hundred and thirty-four days, the French artillery threw into the town 510,- 000 round shot, -236,000 shells from howit zers, 360,000 shells from mortars, and 8,000 rockets. During the war, moreover? the in . - fantry fired 25,000,000 of cartridges. Forms of Bequests. :When bequests aro made to the Institutions of the Church, let the following forms be carefully observed. Legacies are often lost to the cause which the testator de signs to aid, by a defect in the will. Whoa real estate 6r other property is to be given, let it be particularly de. scribed.

DR. ni_ r JANE 9 S CELEBRATED VERMIFUGE AITD LIVER PILLS. WE beg leave to call the often " tion of the Trade, and more especially the Physicians of the country, to two of the most popu lar remedies now before the public. We refer to Dr. Chas. l'Lane's Celebrated Vermifuge and Liver Pills. We do not recommend them as universal Cure-alls, but simply for what their name purports, viz.: THE VERMIFITGE, For expelling Worms from the human system. It has also been administered with the most satis factory results to various Animals subject to Worms. THE LIVER PILLS, For the cure of LIVER COMPLAINTS, all BILIOUS DERANGEMENTS, SICK HEAD-ACHE, &c. In cases of FEVER AND AGUE ? preparatory to or after taking Qui nine, they almost invariably make a speedy and permanent cure. As specifics for the above men tioned diseases, they are Unrivaled, and never known to fail when ad ministered. in accordance with the directions. Their unprecedented popularity has induced the proprietors, FLEMING BROTHERS, PITTSBURGH, PA. 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 HMO BROS. Pittsburgh, Pa, P. S. Dealers and Physicians ordering from others than. Fleming Bros., will do well to write their orders distinctly, and take none but Dr. IfLanes, prepared by Fleming Bros. Pittsburgh, Pa. To those wishing to give them a trial, we will forward per mail, post paid, to any part of the United States, one box of Pills for twelve three-cent postage stamps, or one vial of Vermifage for fourteen three-cent stamps.

FITCH & SYKES would state that their treatment of Consumption is based upon the fact that o disease exists in the blood and system at large, both before and during its development in the lungs, and they therefore employ Me chanical, Hygienic and Idediclnal remedies to purify the blood and strengthen the system. 'With these they use Medicinal Inhalations, which they value highly, but only as palliatives, (having no curative effect when used alone,) and Invalids are earnestly cautioned against wasting the precious time of curability on any treatment based upon the plausi ble, but false Idea that the "seat of, the disease can be reached in a direct manner by Inhalation," for as before stated, the seat of the disease is in the blood and its effects only in the lunge. charge for consultation.
