Why Mourn
BY'O. H. Waal.
The golden grafu
Is ripened but to death;
And Summer's leaves
Must fall with Autumn's breath
For all things die
Behold f the tnarlole'ern
That shrines our dust
Shall crumble in its.turn.
We mourn the Young;
That perish as the flowers,
Whose petals source •
Have kissed. Life's rosy hours.
We mourn the Old,
Who vaoish from odr sight'
As Summer days
That fade in lengthenedllght.
A selfish grief:
They fall not as the leaves,
But ripened grain,
And angels bind the sheaves.
An aged friend,
Whose years were as :a crown,
But yester•night
Unto tho gravo went down.
As sinks the sun,
Low curtained in, the West,
Its journey done: •
So went he to his' rest.
No warring strife :
And when had ceased his breath,
It was not Life—
Yon scam could call it Death.
A soft sealed smile
Fell like a sunbeam's play,
As though the soul
At parting Weed its clay.
The lines that 'Finis
Upon the brow had traoed,
Death's gentle hand
With kindly touoh effaced.,
So calm—so still .
The peace that veiled the dead :
Were Death not•mute,
Those parted lips had said:
O ye that mourn,
A selfish grief ye give ,
Restrain your tears
To pour for those thatlive !

Letters
OF THE REV. JOHN SMITH; A PRESBYTE-
RIAN MINISTER, TO HIS BROTHER, :THE
REV. PETER SMITH, A METHODIST
PREACHER.
LETTER IX.
DEAR BROTHER :—" The Artnini‘n as
fully as the Calvinist, admits the doetrine
of the total depravity of human nature in
consequence of the fall of our That parents."
This is not - My statement; it, is the 'stare
meet of the Rev. Richard Watson, the
ablest theologian of your Church. This
Scriptural doctrine has ,always been,a stone
of stumbling, but the Mumblers were, per
hope, never so numerous as in the nine•
teenth century. If a little learning in
Pope's time used to make a man-a fool,ho,w
shall we describe the havoo a 'little science
makes of men's- sober senees in our times!
Shoals of Pelagians more heterodox than
Pelagius himself, Pelagians df the` school'
which believes in a religion without grace,
and hopes for a heaven without a Saviour,
the school of Fowlers and Wells, of Dr.
Bellows, and of Dr. 'Chapin, threateri a
general bankruptcy of the faith once deliv
ered to the saints. The mere mention of
total depravity is sufficient to discompose
the philosophic gravity of these gentlemen.
Human nature is for them good enough; it
needs only the right, kind of yaining to ele•
vote it to perfection. The result is what
might be expected--the system of one pre
tender has a run today, and .the new•fan•
glad theorici of another pretender have
run to-morrow; while tbe day following, the'
dupes of both tie their faith to the leading
strings of a third pretender, taller by a head .
than hi's brethren in impudence 'and . au-
dacity. Meanwhile the world lies wfiere it
lay centuries ago, in wickedness. All its
maxims, its principles, the motives ,it holds
out, its very excellences, its very means
and ends of doing good, confirm the awful
truth. The throne, which of right belongs,
to God, is vacant, or rather it is occupied
by a daring usurper. We arc of a race
deep in love, not with holiness, but with
sin. Carrion does not so attract the keen
eye and the'keeuer scent of the vulture, the
mire and filth of the cess pool do not so
attract, the tastes and propensities of the
swine, as sin attracts the souls of men, and
draws. them within its deadly, sphere. Its
poison is infused into every system. Unao•
countable are its pranks, dreadfully odd its
freaks, The spiritual vision is distorted
Every object is out of its place. A. mole
bill springs into the air, and assutues the
huge dimensions of a mountain ; a
mountain dwindles to a mole hill. The
spiritual activities are strangely perierted.
Meu go on all fours„ they stand; stock
still, they turn summersete, they stand
on their heads, feet in the' air, and
call aloud to their fellows to admire
their dexterity. Could rational beings be
deluded so by any thing .but sin ? Could
any thing else so deprave the affections, so
darken the understanding, so warp the
judgment? Could Dr. Holmes labor under
the singular hallucination that he, poor
man, had a call to Americanize the Bible;
could' Wendell Phillip, eloquent in the
cause of Jacobinism and aseassination, keep
up hie blasphemous tirades ; could William
Lloyd Garrison and the venemous tribe of
which, he is ut once the head and the tail,
boil over every first of May, with the cor
ruption that renders their neighborhood ab
solutely intolerable to all but inch as are
like themselves; could Daniel E Sickles, and
Brigham Young, and Judge Edmonds, and
Parker Pillsbury, and Theodore Parker, be
what they are, if the doctrine of total deprav
ity was not fouri l did in truth ? When these
persons speak, they speak as their nature
prompts them. Wien they act, they act
nature. Brigham Young, surrounded by
the: ,concubines- of .his harem, Theodore
Parker, ignoring revelation and defying
reason, Judge Edmonds;' nightly consulting
the devil, and receivieg praoular responses,
Pillsbury, Phillips, Garrison, and company,
male and female, foaming.out their ribaldry
and atheism as often as the. , fit• ;takes them,
is all perfectly 'natural.
The Arminian theory Ofloompeneation,
sialiiined in the lights of facts, ap.
pears excessively lame. Bolstered up be
tween real Gospel truths, it makes out to
hobble along, but unsupported it would
sink in hopeless; is not
true that ungodly men are compensated for
the loss of orieinal righteousness. Mr.
Watson affirms that we all corns into the
world with natures totally depraved, and he
Affirms the truth. Bat where is the com
pensation Is it in the plan of salvation ?
But that is not a system of compensation.
If it were, each sinner woold be entitled to
an equal share with his fellow dinners. All
suffered alike in the fall, and, if the repre
sented bureau family was unfairly dealt
with—and there is reason to fear that all
Arminiafts secretly think ,eo—all would
have an equal claim for damages; all would
be entitled to an equal compensation. But
all men do not, as a matter of fact, come
in fo'r an equal shale of the Divine Wise.
inns, and this.proVes, vvhat the Bible con
stantly teaches, that we are placed under
system of pure grace. To ashore of grace , .
nu sinner can possibly have a valid Claim;
otherwise, grace is no more grace It' is
one ,of the many hlunderro which Armin
lane make, to, mill cooapensation 'graoe, and ,
grace compensation, words standing for
things as wide apart as the , poles: That all.
men receive an equal , share of grace, not
even Mr. Wesley .affirms; no, not even Dr.
Foster will, affirm. Did Esau enjoy- as '
much of the Divine favor as. Jacob 7 Did
Judas have as much grace as Peter? Were
the wicked men that ,aceompanied the
'wicked Saul of Tarsus, also converted? •Is
not the Whole scheme of redemption re- •
solved by the Scriptures into the infinite,
and absolute sovereignty of God who has
mercy simply on whom , he will,have mercy ?
Why then d 9 you Arminian preachers put
it• into the heads'of the people that justice
required compensation to be made to the
posterity o' fallen Adam ? Can you not
see that the compensation, even • in' your
view of it, 'does not cover the loss? To
them that receive abundance of grace, and
of the gift of righteousness, so as to reign
in life by Jesus Christ, the loss-is indeed
more, vastly more than made up. But do
all men receive abundance of grace, and of
the gift: Of righteousness? Will all men
reign in life ? Did Voltaire, did Voleey,
did Gibbon, did Hume, did Paine, did
Mirabeau, did Denton, did RObesspierre,
infidels. all, receive abundance of grace and,
of the gift of righteousness, and' is there
reason to' believe that these'scoffers.are now
reigningin life by Jests Christ ? -On your
scheme the impertinent sinner might say,
that his rights were- invaded 'before he was
born, and therefore he rejects all compensa
tion-; that he demands 'to •be , reiustateed iu
the , enjoyment of his ~ original rights; that
he ammtnits, , many sins-he acknowledges, but
as these flow from a' nature essentially , cor.,
rupt, the,•gam must not lie at his . door ; that
he lee been misused; thatit isotrue.he has
a chancre of. being saved, God knowing-it ••
*quid he unjust to bring . him into, the world
without providing .. a Redeemer, made cote- •

acknowledgment „of doctrine; so full of
comfort, Parker: Pillsbury: might say, " lily
lusts-were so etrong ? and .my depravity in
general was so great, that Christianity „lost
its last hold on me, and I tumbled into the
blind' vortex -of atheism. But' I 'was 'born

Episcopal' Church, tells. me I cannot be

Mrs. Lucy Stone and her worthy compeers

the rest of our sex, was, unhappily, so im
perfectly developed by us, that we could
not help becoming the impudent Viragos we

devil. The remit was those shocking false
hoods with which I deceiyed,others and was
deceived myself. But I was born oorrupt,
and the' excellent and trustworthy Arminian
doctor, Dr. Foster, insists that I cannot
be guilty for this." But how the doctrine
laid down by Mr. Watson, in his Institutes,

to be reconciled with the doctrine laid down
by the author of that never—mufficiently—

A comparison of the .religious statistics; of
Germany in 1840 with those of 1858, shows
that the number of Protestants in nearly
every state has increased in a larger ratio
than that of Roman Catholics. Whole
congregations of Catholics, or at least a ma
jority of them, have •in a number of , in
stances become Protestant clergy. Prot

priests as 'Catholicism has proselytes *mu

Mu AFFAIRS OF ; ITALY have -assumed
a gloomier aspect, although the - . skies may

to the Conferences of Bteritt. These,
at my iresent writing, are not yet an

to find the Constitutionel, in an article,. on
" England, and:-.16,1Y" ;ifreeljusti
tying the summary close of the Italian
campaign, bythe Treaty of Villafranea,,and
on a ground very, romantic, as an Imperial
reason—namely, that. had France ComPleted
her victories by overvilielming 'Austria, her
victory, as as. , the victory of new
coalition, - would forever-have destroyed that
nice preponderance of States,whieh neees
sary,tor the civilization and liberty of the
world,
"In face of this alternative, the Emperor
thought - it right• to halt; thinight that
his sovereign responsibility. , did•not,justify
him in playing,nuelLa stake ;. he respected
the: independence of Europe,, as he means
the independence of France to be respected.
The Coitstitutiona then goes on to ask.:
" Is this the , reproaeh cast upon the preliw
inaries of Villafranca ?" Next .is At sneer
at the " new friends .of Italy," whose
"sympathies come semewhat late" The
proposed annexation of the Central States

the present; we must not mike her abandon
it." 'Once more there is a cuff for "those
who are bent on an impossible Italian unity;'.''
and.theDu.obies are I. ‘ damned with faint ;

"we would !suggest 'that the votes of the

said,= have not perhaps, so much value as -is
attributed to them." .

suggestion that if annexed, they will be
only "chief towns in a kingdom of which
Turin is - die' capitaliP 'andt the princes who
are,expelled• would be, perhaps, ~regretted
more or less near!'
Next, it-is hinted that if Piedmont gets
so large accessions, it destroys the e,quilib
rium'between her and' the - kingdom of 'the
Kiog Of Naples, and would -render •,"Jed
eration," and " Italian nationality " almost
impossible
The article concludes by .invoking to
their considerations the attention of, "all
the teal friends' of Italy," and suggests' that
Eagland,• among these' " real friends,", and
now, in fresh armed alliance against China,
with France, will aid her in " bringing, if
requisite to the conditions of peace, the
modifications reconcilable wits the inter
este and honor of the parties concerned.
":Thanks to such union," it is said in con
clusion, "the`Peninsula will be free from
the Alps to the Adriatic"
Thus "the Sphinx," i e., the Emperor,
keeps us all in doubt. & solution in the
shape of a tertkunt quid, may be his pur
pose. It may be that he will not insist on
his worthless cousin being King of Etruria,
nor yet suffer Venetia to be entirely trampled
down (` , , the state of siege," just abol
ished there,) by Austria; but it is pretty,
certain that he will not allow Vietor-Era
manuel to accept the Dutchies, and so what
is to become of them ? Some have talked
of the second son of the King 'of the 13e1-
&mg .becoming King of Etruria, and, a mild
Austrian Grand - Duke ruling Modena and'
Parma. But all is uncertainty.
THE LIBERTY OE THE PRESS in Fratlee
is far trona being su real as was confidently
gathered from the withdrawal of warn

THE LONDON CABMEN are a very runner.
OHS body of men, who, - up till within a few,
year's; - have been %lamentably neglected in
reference to- mon& and , oulture.ti
They have very hard work, are employaby
masters, who, as, a _rule, require them to
bring home at night so much money per
day, , and if this is not made np, they must'
pawn theirclothes or bedding -to complete
it, =on = pain= of dismissal. They ,are thus
tempte.4l-to take, advantage of lady passen
gers or ; foreigners, in exacting more than
their due, often accompanying, the demand
by insolent language
:But a great Change is now paining' Over.
this class, aXwell- as over:the': omnibus dri
vers and conductors in the petropplis.
They begin to see and find that the,. public
cares for them, and sympathizes with them,
and so they begin to respect themselves.
More than' this, -active . means have been
adppted, with surprising success,-for their .
'moral and spiritual advancement. One pow
erful means of this to the cabmen, has been
that in a recent o3hange.in'th'S iota' Parlia•
ment regulating their:trade, the -mastersi
may,. if-they please, take ontAleenses., for,
six,,day, cabs—in other words, they, are mot,
obliged to work their hopes and men,on the i
tord'i'day.
An 'itioreasing number 'of inaliters
themselves of the privilegeoind: tHe-result;
is,that they havezhealthierland more:endnr.-
ing, homes, and belter .and more faithful
servants.
The poor men who work seven days, are
almost Strangers to their own funnier'', The
city missionary, who has >been appointed to'
our dist,riet for their special , benefit, and, that,
of theirlimilies, writes thus: ig Apy,.pprson
Weald be surprised at the great 'difference to,
be observed between the six and seven day
men. -Those - min ivho' rest on -Sunday,
are remarkable for their respectable'. appear.
anee, as may, be easily proved by noticing
them on the stands.during the week„ and, hy
'seeing them at*their several places of wet.•
ship on the Lord's day, but more especially
by visiting them at their homes. I often
point them out to the seven day men, who
cannot, help admitting the truth, of what I,
tell, them.
"i 4 The seven day men have no use for,,
Sabbath clothes, since they never' hive tibia'
to wear them. Hundreds wbuld be folio&
without, a change of clothes. Some-of them
tell me that they. work three mouths, and :
some four months, without a day's.rest, be-,
ing out' from sixteen to eighteen hours a
day."
All dabs in Ldndon, =whose WuMbers
above ten thousand, are. six.day cobs; ,anda
' any ,American friends visiting usorill select.
suchen the stands, they will be better seived,-
and at the same time be giving encourage
ment to a movement which afitictii
est interests of a very numerous Aitis.
The Bishop of London has taken , deep
interest in this matter, and Lord. Shaftebury.
has inaugurated new Cabmen's Associations
for mutual improVement, ineluding Siek
Fund 'and News' Roornsi. An ever inoreati=

Philadelphia, South 'West, Corner of Seventh and Chestnut Streets

seven hundred' and seventy seven drivers,

months, while a few years ago he would have
seen hundreds a week. So likewise as to
Swearing ;- it is now seldom heard.
Even Punch has been helping the move

the meeting , to ,forma Oshman's Chit), at
which "good Lord 'Shaftabury" presided,
and to the speeches then delivered - by cab
bies themselves, he writes thin :
"That the speechifying was quite up to public

xtished us suffice, we think, to show. Among the
Penile of eloquence. Which Were dropped on the
occasion, ; one jewel of a cabman we, are , told, let
fall the following :
