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 ! Nor the Presbyterian Banner and Advocate 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- • pensation in the gift of his dear Son, but he'does not Choose to accept the ocomPerisa. , thin ; 4 Witt; lie Will' take urrthe plea the Rev., R. S l'oster has 'set forth so ` r lucidly on the ' one hundred - , and sixty-sixth page of that wonderfulo book, " Objections to 'Cialviniam." • " Sinners 'were , born corrupt , an d so -can not be 'guilty , for , this ; ther cannot escape from corruption, andenarernotquilty for remain-, ingin it; und therefore-they , •have .trognilt: whatever •because, of their corruption." 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 corrupt, and Dr. Foster, of the Methodist Episcopal' Church, tells. me I cannot be guilty for, this." Dr •Helms inighveriy, My-pride and self - Conceit were so invete rate,Ahatd was simple enough to , propose to iemasenlate , the Holy *Bible, in orders to give, my countrymeri• an Americanized Bible: But. I , was !born corruptvand so cannot, as good Dr. Foster says ' be,guilty for this." Mrs. Lucy Stone and her worthy compeers teig,ht say,..."The modesty that' belonged' to the rest of our sex, was, unhappily, so im perfectly developed by us, that we could not help becoming the impudent Viragos we were. 'But we were born -corrupt, and or thodoi"Dr Foster assures tie we cannot 'be guilty for this " Judge Edmonds might say, "I despised the sacrefikSorintares, and attempting topry into things not given to mortals to know, fell into the snare of the 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, quoted in the-first sentence of thisletter is to be reconciled with the doctrine laid down by the author of that never—mufficiently— to beAdmired work, " ObjeetionaJo Calvin ism," id a problem L ; would respectfully band over to your next annual Conference for solution.

We earnestly commend it to those who are inquiring for a field of labor. SUSQ'CIEHANA. Germapy. 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 estandsm has gained• four times as many priests as 'Catholicism has proselytes *mu the Protestant clergy. The whole number of Protestants in.the States, of the ,German Confederacy.is at present 20,000,000; that of Catholics 23,150,000., "ONE THING IS NEEDFUL:" "ONE THING HAVE!

Mu AFFAIRS OF ; ITALY have -assumed a gloomier aspect, although the - . skies may brighten suddenly by unexpected issues to the Conferences of Bteritt. These, at my iresent writing, are not yet an nounced It is rather ominous, however, 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 to , Sardinia,' is evidently detested by the Imperialist ;newspaper. It praises Piedmont as, the ,"chauipion" of Italy, " when despaired." " But, preeisely because her part hue been grand and disinterested up to, 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 ; praise" for their " sincerity;" but then "we would !suggest 'that the votes of the annexationists, of which so much has been said,= have not perhaps, so much value as -is attributed to them." . The jealousy of Flcirence, Parma, and Modena, is sought to be excited by 013 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 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= ing number of . them` are, 'by' tracts; books, and personal exhortation by city:missionaries,. brought, Ainder the influence of genuine_ Ohristitniq. qv, I Cc ckwe havirmi 4, 1 0. 1 ,t.„ :lcc f t Philadelphia, South 'West, Corner of Seventh and Chestnut Streets and forty,. out of seventy-four thousana seven hundred' and seventy seven drivers, have given ap 'Sabbath work. One of Cab missionarios says ;'he had 'not net with : drunken cabman, for nearly six 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 ment,in his own witty way: Referring to 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 zneeting pitch, the, brief extracts which-•are , fur4 xtished us suffice, we think, to show. Among the Penile of eloquence.

The free conversation on the subject of 'religion elic ited many cheering facts concerning Zion's pros perity, whilst many of these statements' also revealed the sad truth that rum selling, intem perance, and Sabbath , breaking, were on the increase in many places within the bounds of Presbytery. Rev.
