Forbear, whene'er an unjust taunt,
Shall quickly flash thine eye ;
And flush thy che,ek with swift desire,
To give some sharp reply.
Forbear, wrath only kindles wrath,
And stirs up passion's Are;
While answering softly, mildly tends
To cheek the bitterest Ire.
Forbear, though some well meaning friend,

Should roughly orush some sanguine hope,
Or brilliant plan prevent.
Forbear, their wisdom may be far

Forbear, when sickness claims thy care,
And murmuring accents prove ;
Breathing complaining, fretful tones,
Sad trials to thy love. •

OUR OURISTIAN CLASSICS ; Iteadings from the
beet Divines, with Notices, Biographical and
Critical. By James Hamilton, D. D., author
of irLife in Earnest," &o. In four volumes.
12mo, 'pp. 424, 424, .424; 420.• New York:
Robert Carter Brothers. Pittsburgh: john
$. Davison. 1859.
These volumes comprise within their limits,
some of the finest specimens of spiritual wealth'
to be found in' ny language. These have been
in a great 'measure, inacoeslible to the peat
mass of readers, and have , been confined to the
privileged few within reach of old libraries, and
having more than ordinary leisure. The work ,
here accomplished could scarcely have been un
dertaken by a more competent hand. It' was the
lot of Dr. Hamilton to be born in the midst of
vld books ; and before he could read them, great
was his admiration of old volumes as tall as him
self, dressed in coats of brown calf and white
vellum. When at length allowed to open the
leathern portals, and examine the contents, his
reverence for the mighty days of the great de
parted,• deepened as he pondered their sayings,
and studied the wisdom that dropped from their
lips. And now, in the fullness of ripened schol
arship, and cultivated taste, he returns to them,
and brings forth some , of their most precious and
most sparkling gems, for • the admiration and
study of this generation. The selections from
the most eminent Christian author's in the Eng
lish language, from the earliest Anglo Saxon
period down to the,oloee, of the eighteenth cen
tury, has been made 11th great care, excellent
judgment, and eiquisite Unite. • The biographical,
historical, and critical notices, obanpying about
one-third of , the volumes,, are characterized by
the beanty and grace which distinguish every
thing from the pen of Dr. Hamilton, and contain
a great fund of important and varied informa

Mr: Ryle is 'well known as a clear, terse, evan
geliCal, and vearm•hearted writer. His pungent
and weighty sentences, as- giver: in his various
works, have already stirred many' hearts; and
every thing that comes from his pen is eagerly'
read. His previous volurnes on Matthew and
Mark have been'much admired for their clearness
of exposition, and the directness and force with
whioh they brought out the great facts and doc
trines of the Gospel. In this ffrat volume' on
Luke, (for it is to he followed by another on the
same book) the same general design is followed
out, viz.: to produce something to meet the wants
of heads of families in instructing their households,
and of private students of the Bible, who have
neither large libraries 'nor 'much leisure. This
volumei4towever' differs from the others in 'the
explanatory notes' appended to each portion of
the Scripture' expounded. These notes, which
add mach to its , value, have been prepared 'to

The value of this Life of Pitt may be inferred
from the fact that it was prepared expressly by
the author for that 'great work, the Incyclopidia
Brittannica. It is a brilliant life or a Thrilliant
man, by a brilliant author. How could the life
of a'Piime 'Minister of 'England fail to be of ab
sorbing 'interest, who occupied so' prominent a
place in the councils of a great nation, in a
period marked by thellight of the Bourbons, the
dowrifali of the Prenoh Aristocracy, the breaking
up of the Germanic Empire, the , vanishing of: the
republic of Holland, the sundering of the Old Hel
wed° League, the dissolution of the great Council
of Venice; and the founding of a new republic on

There is a marked similarity between the laws
„which re'gulafe the growth of =Ws mind and
, body. Generally it viji be found that few men
attain hibe eleiation of seven het in attitude,
with all •their parte and powers Manifesting a
corresponding' development. The number of
those who reach to six feet six inches, be
much greater, while if the scale be lowered to
six feet, or five feet nine inches, a multitudiNrill
be found to reach this standar& Be also is it= in
the, department of mind. Greece produced but
one Homer, one Plato, one Demosthenes,•and one
Aristotle, while Eg3 pt had tint s, solitary Euclid.
'Home had her Virgil and her Cicero. TheMoaen
stood aloft in ;the field of letters far above all
competitors in the olden time. So has it ever
:been: Coming down to the period 11011614
denominated the dark' ages, still we have the
gloom irradiated by the names of A.beltird, Anselm;
ificat'us, and such brilliant' lights, who' ebine out,
with a splendor far surpotifing ; all ,their f fellows;
'hater skill, England has produceitliCt one
a• „ ,
Shakespeare, and one Milton ; but these take rank
With'those Who,writ; for all men and for all times.
To England also 'belongs the distinguished
honor of .produeing the man who stands' out as
the acknowledged founder of modern philosophy.
While Shakespeare, as a poet, has exhausted tho
world of nature, Bacon, as a philosopher, by
the fertility of his genius, the depth of his pene
tration, and the keenness of his logic, has founded
a .system that inniiPfehends and interprets all
During the stormy and fleeting life of the
Greek Republics, the system of Aristotle was not
fully developed in its application to science.
Rome was military, subduing .the nations, and
bringing them under the power of law and order.
It was only when the revival of learning in the
Western nations took place, that the laws of the
Greek logician were permitted to develop their
tendencies in the system of scholasticism, which,
for a long period, held the human mind in chains.
Bacon was raised up as the great emancipator
and dlrector, ef: human thought. Undervalued in
his own 4lay, the great master of the indUctive
philosophy is now seen to have been one .of the
most signal benefactors of our race, whose in -
thience is' felt alike by' those who cultivate an
acquaintwe with the kingdom of nature, or
those who investigate the workings of the human
mind. Had flacon not lived and accomplished hie
great achievement, the world wohld have been
left to dogmatize as in former ages, when the
chief offese arid effort of the learned were, to
overthrow the systems of tbeir predecessors, and
erect a superstructure of their own, which was
doomed*, a similar fate.
The edition before us is wonderfully coinplete.
It comprises ill that is to be found in the, seven
teen volume copy lately published in London, and
in addition to the admirable and extended life by
'Montagu, the Latin portions of the great phildso -
pines works , are well rendered into English.
Tids edition is, therefore, everything that mere
English' readers could 'desire. 'We ehall advert
to 'the cluirectiristios of" the separate treatises
'when we are called on to notice the second and
third vo lumes.
.Meantimer, we close by saying
that no library ; -should be 'considered perfect,
which does not possess a copy of this great work.

Par, the Presbyterian Banner end Advocate.
Mums. Ramona :—I have been a. read
er of the Presbyterian Banner ever since
it was first published; and, to the best of
my_knowledge, I_ have never seen any thing
in i the ton subject of punctuality.*
Punctuality, in my opinion, is worthy
the consideration of both old and young.
If you publish these lines, and should
any one happen to read theta, who knows
himself or herself unaccustomed to be
punctual, I trust that the following thoughts
will excite or stimulate them to the observ
ance of this duty.
Punctuality is one of the most beautiful
traits in one's character, and net only adds
to a person's estimation in the minds of
others, but is ever a source of great advan
tage to the one possessing it. Those unac
imetomed to be punctual, and to perform
their duties with promptness, are forever in
the drag. By their tardiness at the cam
'mencement of the day, they are just , so
much behind all during it-; which, taken in
connexion with the accumulation of logs
from the force• of the habit during the day,
results, at the close of it, in the , loss of
much ; . precious time; and, if Continued
through life, in the frustrating of many
plans, and the blighting . of many fond
hopes, and too frequently is a clog 'to the
progress of many who are dependent upon
the exertions and instructions of these tardy
ones, for means and ability, and occasion to
perforin protngtly the duties of life. It is
particularly desirable and essential that the
pining who are now forming habits for life,
should, cultivate Punctuality as one of
'the noblest and most promotive traits
character, and one 'of the first among 'the
graces whit* adorn a well-ordered life.
Method is the very : hinge of business;
and there is no method without punctuality.
A want of this virtue would throw the whole
world into, a state of confusion and disorder.
Punctuality is very important,• because it
is not only the golden chain of the universe,
but , because it promotes the peace, order,
good' temper and. happiness of a family.
The want of it not on y, infringes on neces
sary, duty, but sometimes excludes it. The
calmness' of 'mind which it produces, is an
other advantage of punctuality. Punctu
ality is very important, as it gains time. It
produces order, the want of which causes;
confusion. It is a great friend both to in
tegrity and peace. It gives weight to char
acter, and like other virtues, it propagates
itself. Servants and children' will be pun°.
tual where their leader is so; and a congre
gation will be punctual where their pastor
k is so.
The celebrated reformer, Melanothon,
when he an made appointment , expected
that the minute as well as the hour, should
be fixed, that•the day might not be run out
in idle suspense. George Washington is
paid never to have been a minute behind the
time in any of his appointments. The cel
ebrated Lord Nelson said he owed all his
success in life to being ready for every ap
pointment a quarter of an hour before the
time. In . the city of London, a number of
gentlemep ...agreed to..,meet- at;-a. specified
hour, fortheNaccomuidditionof individ.
ntitoSemehiel .be Tie& was the'sole object
of the interview.. They all attended pupa
tually_at the hour, except the-person speci
ally concerned,rwho was from a quarter to
half an hour behisd -the time.; After,,ao-,
eomplishing the business, an honest Quaker;
who was one of the - company, thus addresses
, the delinquent : 4, ,Friend; thou-mayest dis
pels of• thine own time as thou pleasest, but
thou hot no right to take my time, or that
of my associates. Thou hast kept eight of
us waiting fifteen'reinutel each by thy tar
diness. This, in the vehele, amounts to two
'hours, tliat did not belong "to- thee; and
*We briefly noted the subject several times.
One of our articles we found copiedinto a 111/M;'
bar of our exchanges.—Eas.
THE PRESBYTERIAN BANNER AND ADVOCATE.
thou badet no light to extort it from us.
Hereafter, if thou, wouldet show. thyself an
honest man, be punctual to thy appoint
ments." If a person needs a rebuke for
keeping eight persons waiting fifteen min.
ides, does not some of our ministers also,
need a rebuke for keeping five times eight,
yes, sometimes ten times eight persons
waiting from two minutes to twenty minutes
after the time appointed for commencing
public services on the precious Sabbath- I
Suppose a minister keeps a congregation
of sixty persons waiting one minute after
the time appointed (Or public services to
commence; thie in the whole amounts to
one hour, and if be keeps them waiting
much longer, it will , amount to a day in a
short time: In every requirement of life,
punctuality is indispensable. In business it
is so necessary that it has become a proverb.
To insure your comfort and respectability, it
is essentially requisite that you should in
all things be punctual. Punctuality as to
time, is very important. In making an ap
pointment with any one, you are bound,
both in , honor and duty, to keep it exactly
at the hour; for, however, much you may
be disposed to squander away your own
time, you have no right to waste that of
another,which may be pressing and valua
ble 'You sbonld, therefore, set the time
and keep it. You should keep it punc
tually ; you should not vary a hair's breadth.
Aitilhen you say Monday; you should mean
Monday. When you say Tuesday Or Wed
nesday, mean Tuesday or !Wednesday.
When you say six o'clock, mean six o'clock.
When you say eleven, mean eleven—not
eleven and a quarter, or eleven and a half,
rime is precious, infinitely precious-; sold
cannot purchase it. Better rob.your.neigh:
bor of gold or precious gems, than rob him
of a moment. Set the time and keep it.
Mostpeopie appear to think that a thing
which will "grow anywhere," with neglect,
or by . accident; is not worth cultivation,
though ever so uneful, or be they ever so
fond of it. Thus it its that the horee.radieh
—though one of the most highly prized
spring condiments—receives little or no at
tention, and is usually found, in most gar
dens to be seen,- in the vicinity of a sink
spout, at the end of a drain, under the fence,
in a shady, worthless corner of the garden,
or other neglected place, out of sight and
mind—only when it is wanted in early Spring
for the table, Then a few meagre, stingy,
forlorn, little, pithy, or holloi roots are dug
up, the tops cut off and thrown away, and
the plants "not worth digging," are left in
the ground, neglected and untbonght of, un•
til another Spring revives the appetite for a
repeated digging of the esoulent. Such is
the usual " oultivation" which the abused
horse radish gets at the hands of its bene
Now horse radish is as much better for
good culture as any other plant; and it bi eo
little trouble, 'that , we will , narrate our own
method of treating it for many years past,
by which we know that the article is im
proved, at least a hundred per cent. in value
and.flavor. We plant in a ; my, or rows, as
we would currant bushes,;' taking a place in
the garden, where we do not
- wish to plow or
dig across it,' and where 'it 13811 stand per
manently. - We then strike out a place, not
under fence,unless it. be on the. Easterly
or Southerly side of it, nor under the shade
of trees—but right out in the warm, open,
exposed part of the garden, where the sun,
rain and air can hit it fairly, as if it were a
beet or onion bed. Staked out, we then
threw on to it a heavy coat of strong, fit,
barn-yard dung r epread evenly over it. We
then plow or spade it in, deep as we `can, and
pulverize the -ground thoroughly. Then,
with crow-bar, or iron-shod hole puncher,
(dibble)—which every gardener should have
about hiin—we sink a line of holes in the
ground, a foot, or eighteen inches deep.
When that is done we fill them up with the
finest of the soil, well mixed up with ma
nure, to within six inches of the surface.
Then we take the greert - tope of the plant,
with about.an inch of the root attached—if
the tops be large, they may be split with a
knife into three or four parts, or if, whole, no
matter bow small—and drop them into the
hole, one root in each—top up, of course—
and cover them in with the soil. The bed
is thus complete, and ready for growing.
Keep them clean by 'the hoe, like any other
crop. The next Spring you can dig from
the thriftiest, and best grown plants all you
want for family use, still putting back; the
top, as when first planted, if you take it all
out. If you leave a root or two in the place
from which you take it, that will furnish in
creasing roots for the next year.
If you grow for market, let them stand
till two years old, as they will be larger, and
then you can dig and - plant at pleasure.- 1 —

To Make Young Pear Trees Bear.
I was afflicted by the sight in my garden
for fOur or five years, of the most luxuriant
and thrifty young pear trees, whioh would
not bear, but all their strength Tab to wood.
Vexed at this, I resolved to try the effect of
bending' downphe branches - so as to check
:the flow of the reap, and cause them• to form
fruit buds instead of wood buds. Acaord
ingly, the first week in December I filled my
pockets' with Stout 'twine; I. drove down,
some small pegs into the ground beneath my
trees (which had branched low, so as to make
dwarfish heads;) I then tied a'string to the
end of every long shoot, and gradually bring
ing down the end of the limb till it curved
down so as to make a considerable bend or
bow; I fastened it in that, either . by tying
the other end - of the string to the.peg, or to
another branch, or to a part of the trunk.
According to my expectation, the tree
next year changed its habits of growth,
and set an abundance of fruit buds. Since
that, I hive had plentiful crops of frUit
without trouble. Take good care not to let
many branches go on the upright .system.—
Origin of Various Plants.
Every gentleman farmer ought to be
somewhat ,acquainted with. the origin and
hiStory of all ordinary plants and trees, 'so
as to know their nature, country, and con
dition., .Such knowledge besides being' a
great source of pleasure, and very desirable,
will often enable him to explain phenomena
in the habits of many plants that otherwise
would, appear inexplicable.
Wheat, although considered by some as
a native of Sicily, originally came from the
central table land - of Thiliet, whein it yet
exists as a grass, with small, mealy seeds.
Rye exists wild in Siberia. Barley exists wild
in the' mountains of Himalaya. Oats were
brought from N. America. Millekone species,
is a nativnof India another, of Egypt , and
'Abyssinia. Rice was brought from South
Africa, whenhe it was taken to India, and
thence to Europe and America. ' Peas are
of unknown, origin. 'Vetches are natives of
Germany. The garden Bean is from the
East Indies. Buckwheat came originally
from Siberia and. Turkey. Cabbage grows
wild in Sicily and Naples. The Poppy was
brought from the East. The Sunflower
from Peru. • Hops Came to perfection as a
wild flower in G6many. Saffron came
from - Egypt. The 'Onion is also a native of
Egypt. Honseradiih from South Europe.
Tobacco hi a-nati e of Virginia, Tobago,

SPECIFICS FOR CONSUMPTION.
SYRUP OF THE IIYPOPEOSPHITES
Composed of the Hypophosphites of Lime,
Soda, Potassa, and Iron.
These remedies were brought to notice by Dr. John
French, Churchill, an eminent physician el Dublin, and
have attracted much attention from ibe medical profesmion.
To give ageneral idea of their alion, we make the follow
ing extracts from Dr. Churchill's Parer " On the Proximate
Cause and Specific Remedy of Tubercultels," reed before
the Academy of Medicine, Faris, July, 185 T. Says Dr. C:—
"The total number of cases of Plithieis treated by me
amounts to thirty-five. All were either in the second or
third stages of tho complaint; that is, they had either
softened tubercles or cavities in the lunge of taese, nine
recovered completely, the physical signs of the disease dis
appearing altogether in eight out of that number; eleven
improved considerably. and fourteen died. The results
will be found to justify the following conclusions:
"The proximate Cants, nr at all events an essential con
dition of the tubercular diathesis. is the decrease in the
system of the phosphorus which it contains in an oxygeni

I Is immediate; all the general symptoms of the disease
aptiearing wit, a rapidity which is really marvelous. If .
the pathnlogleal deposit produced by the dyscracy is of re
cent formation, if softening hart only just set in. and does
not procetti too rapidly, the tubercles are re-absorbed and
disappear. When the softening has attained a certain de
gree, it sometimes continues in spite of the treatment; and
the issue of the disease then depends upon an anatoul'eal
condition of the local lesion, on its silent, and upon the
existence or non-existence of complications. I have made
numerous attempts to modify the local tradition of the
lungs by the inhalation of different substances, but have
never obtained any satisfactory result independent of what
was to be attributed to the specific treatment. The Hypo
phorphitea are certain prophylactics against tubercular
"The physiological effects show these preparations to
have a two-fold action; on the one hand they increase the
principle, whatever that may be, which constitutes Per
rone forte, and on the other, they elevate the tone of the
several functions concerned in alimentation and nutrition.
They seem to possess, in the-highest degree, all the therm
peutical properties formerly attributed by different ob
servers to phosphorus itself; without any of tile danger
which attends the use cf that substance The different
preparations of Hypophoisphonms Acid will undoubtedly
occupy one of the moat important places in the Materia
The success of this treatment being eo much in advance
of anything before attained in the management of this
heretofore almost incurable disease, calls for a thorough
testing of these remedies. With this view, the combination
here offered In the form of - Syrup has been made.
The beneficial effects of-these Salts are not limited to
Consumption alone •
they are appropriate remedies in a
large class of affections resulting from lose of nervous
force, Dyspepsia, Scrofula. debilitated conditions of Females,
lack of vital action in Children, - and where the osseous
system is defective. Understanding the chemical nature
of these Salts, physicians will be'establed to use them in
