Where .Dost Thew Build
Where dost thou build,TO Ina ?
The question let me , prese,
Since time is brief, and life a span,
And thine a mortal dress.
flas pleasure won thy heart,
Or lured thee with her smile ?
Tle careful lest Illy conscience ,
Thy soul be lost the while.
With laurels of renown
Would'st,thou entwine thy name?
True happiness is hardly known
Within the round of fame.
For boards of glittering etore
Heav'st thou the secret sigh t .
Grasp, if thou wilt, the paltry ore,..
But know that thou mnst die
If thou art young andlay,
Oilseed with, affection'a beams;;
Oh, trifle not thy youth array.
In folly's futile,sohemes I
Or low with paini and cares,
Timeworn and tempest-beat;
Let wisdom on thy
Her heavenly impress set.
The worldling builds on earth,.'
And oasts his lot on time ;
The monarch bull& on regal hirth,
The young man on his prime.
But these have built iwvain
And traced their' hopes in sand

The total number of new candidates is one
hundred and fortyone, which is the largest
number received in any one year since the
division of the Church.
_ This large increase of candidates should
awaken gratitude and joy in the hearts of
Christians, as a token of God's unmerited
favor and of his answer to prayer. What
an encouragment is also thus held , forth to
faithful parental training, to the continuance
of earnest supplication, and to general co.
operation in measures to assist in the train.
ing of candidates for the ministry!
The best hope of continued and enlarged
enemas in the Church's operations in this
department,is, under sod, in prayer. :. The
Board strenuously reiterate their conviction
that the praying churches, looking up to, the
Lord of the harvest, are the training church
es for the increase of the. ministry.
STATE OF THE TREASURY.,
The following is a general view of the
pecuniary affairs of the Board during °the
eccleshu3tioal year, ending April 20th
I. Candidates' Funds. 11: Ash'is and ORs.
Total Income, 58,118.98 5,886.81
Payments, 51,516.55 4,687:67
111. MOW. Fund. IV African Pura
Balances, 1859, 43.76 1,353.69
The total receipts of the year; from all
sources, are $58,057.18. .
The total receipts of the Candidates' Fund
are $52,077,92. , This itt the largest sum for
candidates received into the Treasury of the.
Board of Education since its organization in ,
1849. The increase, above the receipts.of
last year in this fund , is $4,994 85.
The Board also report that there hat 3,
never been so little outward, agency in the
collection of funds, as during the past, year.-
The plan of Systematic Beneioleiine,
free-will offerings-from the churches,
ular periods, under .the supervision of rthe•
Pastors and Sessions, is working with great
effmiency—as might be expected- from -
plan that has the directrecommendatieri:in‘t
sanction of the Scripture& So well - has this,
plan worked in securing funds for , the,:edn..,
cation of candidates, that the Board his - teat
found it necessary , to make any special ap
peal to the churches,. „ ,
The eiperience of the itoard of ,Educe..
tion is, that the supply of funds has always
equalled the demand. When the General:
Assembly increased the annual approprit
tions to candidates, the churches increased: .
their contributions proportionably and when,
the number of candidates was enlarged, in ,
the providence and, by the grace of .God;
corresponding enlargement of pecuniary ire
sources simultaneously followed.
A regular and steady advance has taken,'
place in the funds for the last ten years, with
a single slight variation, such as might be
expected in operations of this nature. The
following table shows the receipts:: the..
fund for Candidates :-- -

The very large increase of new candidates
this year, .will call for an inereatie- of

estee that the aggregate, nimber,cu the roll
for the, coming year, will, exceed four_ huu-_,
THE OFFIC.E . AND AGEECY
No agency, outside of the office, hasheen
employed - in the collection of funds; and, as
has been Already stated, the Seiretaries of
the Board have found it leis neceiiary than
ever before, to engage in this work.' There
is nevertheless a large amount of outside
service to be performed through the office,
in .addition 'to its regular correspondence.
This service consists , principally in the pas
toral visitation of the candidates in , the var;
ions Academies, Colleges, and Theological
seminariei, and in going , to all parts
Church to advise, and

7. This plan interferes with no other
scheme or object of benevolence. The
cause of Colleges takes its natural place, oari
its natural day, and, without hindrance to
any other good work.
8. This plan has a capacity for enlarge
ment, which gives it the, prospect of yield
ing a sufficient income, ultimately, for all
the purposes of the Board. It may be
worked into more efficiency,,like other be
neiolent plans, by imparting information to
the churches, by an occasional sermOn, or
word of exhortation, from the pastor, or by
conversation with individuals. In abort,
the Board are willing to take the, responsi•
bility of the efficiency of the plan, if the
churches will adopt it., Small sums from
many churches will make up, eventually, it
is believed, a sufficiently large aggregate to
enable the Church to sustain her institutions
in their time of need.
• In view of these various considerations,
the Board submit to the General Assembly
the propriety of taking, up collections, at
the annual meetings for prayer, on the last
Thursday of February: The board repeat
that it is their only hope of ddiagthe work
intrusted to theirt by. the Church, so far as
they, have ,any light,upon the subject.. After
being engaged in the work for ten years,
the 'Board can testify that the aid, rendered
in this departn3eht, has accomplished the
most important and useful results to the
cause of religious educatiop,:"Jioth - directly
and' indirectly, in our own, and in other
churches; 'and it , is 'their strong conviction
that' the efforts, made in behalf of eduea
tional,institutions,eught te be enlarged:and
perpetuated from generation to generation.

This is another valuable irorlefrein the press of
Gould & Lincoln, that merits a large circulation
and„careful, study. The ;Rev. John Banipton,
Canon of Salisbury,' in' his last will and testament,
made provision for the delive4 orreight ledtures

some of the great fundamental doctrines.-con
nected with, the_ O b ilstian_ revelation ! and, tbe

and able` " Reader in Mail and Meta Physical
Philosophy at Magdalen College In , a short
time :,these,published lectures reached a third
edition in England„and,their great petits must
command an equal attention wherever known.
It is ,a masterly effort favor of God's truth,
and against Rationalism in its most dangeroua
and specious forms. It is shown most conclu;
sively, that whatever of difficulty maY;he found
connected with religious :knowledge, even when
pursued to they extreme limits of human thought,
equy; difficulties exist in, regard to any other,
species of knowledge, when pursued to the Ulti-
Mate limits of iihieh,thil human mind is capable.
The fallacies of. Rationalism are detected,' ax
posed, and dostroyeg, in a manner most philo
sophical, and sat the Imma litae in accOrdance
with the general teachings of 'the Word of God.-
This is eminently a work for the present , times,
so Closely is it related to the higher, thinking of
the present generation, and so boldly and
does it 'carry the' Christian argument
through' the entire , course of recent, and especially
German speculation. It is defence of revealed
religion, against the skepticism., of our day," as
unanswerable as irasthe Analpgr! „of . liutler
against, the 'skepticism of his times. It is the
very antidote needeft ageing the ,Pantheism and
Parkerism that have become so largely moor-.

Limits of Religious Thought.'
By REV. H. LONGUEVILLE ifANSEL, B. D, Reader in
Moral and Metaphysical Philosophy at Magdalen
12m0., cloth. $l.OO.
This volume is destined to create a profounder sensation
in this country than any philosophical or religious work of
this century. It is a defence of revealed religion, equal in
ability to the " Analogy " of Bishop Butler, and meets the
skepticism of our age as effectually as that great work-in
an earlier day. The Pantheism and Parked= infused
into our popular literature will here find an antidote. The
Lectures excited the highest enthusiasm at Oxford, and the
volume has already reached a third edition in England.
The copious "Notes" of the author have been translated
for the 'American edition by an accomplished scholar, which
adds greatly to its value.
Hugh Miller's New Volume.
POPULAR GEOLOGY. With Descriptive Sketches from a
Geologist's Portfolio. By Hugh Miller. With a Re-
mime of the Progress of Geological Science dur-
ing the last two years. By Mrs. Miller.
12M 0., Moth. $1.25.
The work is likely to prove the most popular of Hugh
Miller's writings, and to attain the widest circulation. It
is written in his beet style, and makes the mysteries of
geology intelligible to the common mind. As an archited
explains the structure of a house from cellar to attic; 'se
this accomplished geologist takes the globes to,pleces, and
explains the manner in which all its strata, have been
formed, from the grailite foundation to the alluvial surface.
It stipplies just the information which many readers have
been longing for, but unable to find.

8 vo., cloth. $2.7 5 .
The sale of .tha first edition of this great work, in four

Hived the highest eommendation from English and Amer.
"An elaborate, erudite, and magnificent work."—N. Y

SPECIFICS FOR CONSUMPTION.
SYRUP OF THE HYPOPIIOSPRITEs,
Composed of the Hypophosphites of Lime,
Soda, Potassa, and Iron.
These remedies were brought to notice by Dr. John
Frau' Churchill, an eminent physician of Dublin, and
have attracted much attention from the medical profe ssion.
To give a general idea of their a-tlon, we make the follow
ing extracts from Dr. Churchill'. Parer " On the Proximate
Caine and Specific Remedy of Tuberculosis," read before
the Academy of Medicine, Paris, July, 1E157. 'Says Dr. C 2-
".The. total number of cases of Phthieis treated by me
amount, to thirty-five. All were either in the second or
third enuyes of the complaint; that is; they had either
softened tubercles or cavities in the lunge: of these, nine

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 cause, or at all events en essential con-
Anion of the tubercular diathesis, is the decrease to the
system of the phosphorus which it contains in an oxygeni
" The aped& remedy of the disease consists in the use of
a preparation of phosphorus, uniting the two conditions,
being in such a state that it may be directirassimilsted,
and at the same time at the lowest possible' degree of ory
"The effects of these salts upon the tubercular diathesis
IS immediate ; all the general symptoms of the disease dis
appearing with a rapidity which is really marvelous. If
.tbe pathological depecit produced by the dyscracy is of re
cent formation, if softening has only just set In, and does
not proceed too rapidly, the tubercles are reabsorbed and
disappear. When the softening bas attained a certain de
gree, it sometimes continues in spite of the treatment; and
the issue of the disease then depends upon an anatomical
condition of the local lesion, on its extent, and upon the
eaiatence or non-existence of complications. I have made
numerous attempts to modify the local condition of the
lunge by the inhalation of different substances, but have
never obtained any satisfactory result independent of what
was to be attributedto the specisc treatment. The Hypo
phosphitea 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 ner.
Tone force, 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 there
pentical properties formerly attributed by different
servers to phosphorus itself, without any of the danger
which attends the use of that substance. The different
preparations of Hypophosphorns Acid will undoubtedly
occupy one of the mnet important places In the Materia
The success of this treatment being so much. in advance
of anything before attained in the management_ ofsthis
heretofore almost incurable disease, calls for a thorough
testing of these remedies. With this view, thecoinhimition
here offered in the form of Syrup has been made.

lack of vital action in Children, and where the osseous

of these Salty, physicians will be enabled to nee them in a
large class of diseases where they seem to be indicated.
