" Walk in wisdom toward them that are without,
redeeming the time."—Col. :5.
I asked you, in my last, to give dirigprkt
heed to the `Apostle 's
direction as to yo7i,r
"walk," in all your personal, elocial, stud
ecolesiastioal relations. Consider , now your
personal relations.
1. To your mon Homes. We naturally
begin at home. Home Ls, the school for
both Church and State. As-the _hopes •of
the people are, so, will- their Churches and
States be. The " Church in the house" -is
the hope of the Church in the world. The
politics of the fireside is framer of the
politice , of the 'State. Purify theee, springs,
and all the stream will be pure. Fill the
hearts of parents and children with the
wisdom of God, and our churches, schools,
and halls of legislation, will 1:m wonderfully
fulkof the same wisdom. It• is with lesson,
then, that our, first solieitudeF,ie for sour
homes. As the new year dawns, we thick
of horrie. (1.) In the year 1860, then, let
home %3e the happiest spot on earth. From
the fires of ince and intemperance,, kindled
, on so many of the " high-planea" of -our
land, let the footsteps .of, husband, brother,
and friend, be turned by the light of a
cheerful 'lime. How .often, „slap, have I
seen home, the gloomiest spot on earth. All
sulkiness, sullenness, and nervousness, Were
saved up for :home. Kindness and politeness
were companions of strangers. Churlish
nesi and booriehness were dwellers at home;
Such things ought not to be. No place on
earth ,should be so " sweet" as , " home."
"Those that are without," look to Christians
at bore. They want to see how religion
worktt at home. And so long as religion
shows se gloomier homes than the world,
you need not be surprised to find your
children choose the world. Let the lightof
the New Year, then, shed a fresh illustration
on that beautiful sentiment, " Home, sweet,
Home," (2) Let the .New Year see the
reign of religion in year homes. Let
religion be the well ispring,of all home joys.-
When the kindness and love of 'the family
°kale are the fruit of that love which is the
gift of the Spirit, I know of no place on
earth so near to heaven as the Christian
home. "Peace of conscience and joy in
the Holy Ghost," are, then, the-source of
that peace which broods and that joy which
flutters' in the sunfighk;of lame. Seek to
make your home religion.em,inently source,
to all, of joy and peace. 'Strip it of all that
is sour or crabbed, repulsive'or cold. 'Make
the hour of Family Worship and •the Sab-
bathe Catechizing, the pleasantest hour of
the week; when instruction and devotion,,
wisdom and piety, reverence and cheerful
1103511; shall be beautifully blended ; when
alPthill feel, even to the sunny•haired'boy
of two or three Summers, who sits on his
stool by the fireside, that this' is an hour
sacred to that Spirit whose fruits are, "Love,
Joy, and Peace." How vivid the recollec
tion of eateehisings different far.; when the
rod hung over the, task, and the reprimand
stood ready, provoking, mistake—a memory
wilier wears, even yet, a sombre brie over
all these precious 'doctrines of our Church.
Let your home-mligion, ; in the, year 1860,
he a sunnier, presence And let, not the
manner of indoctrinating turn your chil
dren against the very doctrines that' must
save their souls. (3.) Let intellectual en
joyments lend a charm to your home circle.
No joys are so refining as the intellectual
joys of the Christian family. And nothing
so'llfredittally banishes peevishness, pew
knee,' gloominess, weariness;
gossip, meal, and a ths:wand'other
" devilte-T'.which crowd the mind lett
"empty, " swept .and garnished "—nothing so
effectually talfintellectual resources. These
are the " strong- man armed," that keeps
the house. I pity, the man who, in the
solitude and retirement of a country home,
has nothing laid upltt store to think about.
And I pity the toarg mite is so stupid as tol
train np his children in the same menta
inanity, leaving their Minds open for the
entrance of every wished passion, simply'
because there is nothing ,in them; and
"Nature abhors a vacuum. ' Let this be a
year of family intellectual eulture. During
the Long 'Winter evenings between this and
Spring, instead of this ' datinbue silence
around the fireside, with. hauls holding' the
head that is bowed in atojitt iliought be
tween the knees, Vonjaring:nrillii: that , will
never come, let mime history- bc -in course
of perusal, some instructive • biography, or ,
book of travels, or the weekly= newspaper.
Theme will ohne a thousand phantoms,
woke an- unwonted.cheeriulnessi , and con
crete-A store of wisdom ,which, in society,
the Church, or the State, Will make: you
and your children far more happy, useful,
and ,respected neighbors, Chiistians, or citi
zens. Satan has, always work enough `for
idle braisrs no less than idle hands, to do.
I think the great lack of , our , rural' papule
,lation is the lack of intellectual culture—
systematic reading and thinking. Hence
our agricultural districts do. note exert:one
tithehof the influence, they ought to exert,
either in Church or State. The .New. Year
is a good time to begin a reform here.
In my next, I will speak of our social
relations, as mambers.of conainttnity.
Truly, yours,

to those prudential Presbyterial regulatiena,
which are not explicitly enjoined in tiod's
Word, but which may be.regazdedisis neees
,sary in order to secure a faithful compliance
with any of his ordinances.
Suchis the , rale requiring all the church.
es uoder our care, to send up to each,apring
meeting, a written certification from their
respective ~Treitumws, of. the full, payment
of, the salaries promised to their respective
pastors. This rule is designed not only to
stimulate i you to romplitude rin the dis z ,

"who is over you in the Lord," but sisal°
secure, official, information of your prompti.
tudiand fidelity in this matter. - Your mon.
tract -with your pastor is not a. private
.agreement between him and yourselves. , If.
this were so, you might , juatly regard , the
inteiferenee of;the Presbytery, without 'corn

pastiee,..llo an officious intermeddling in mat
tars which., do not belong• •to.them. But,so
far from- this, being the fact; you.enteredin.
to a contract with yotir pastor through the
Presbytery.' It is therefore not only Our
right, but our duty, to demand,estiesictory .
evidence ; that you are, faithiully fulfilling
the' engagements into which yott voluntarily.
entered. This is what we' ask in requiring
you to furnish us with an official certifies=
tion, annually,- that you have met , in-full
your, dues to 'your pastor: With this requi
sition, you; have failed to comply ;, and in
this you.have disregarded:the anthor
ity of a Court ofJesns Christ, to which you
owe, and have promised obedience. This,
failure, moreover, renders the presumption
legitimate, that you have likewise , failedtto
discharge your pecuniary obligation to your
paetor, acoording to your agreenient, and
have 'hence violated a positive ordinance,of.
the.Lordlesua. We earnestly, entreat you
to look, at,this ,matter with'prayerful delib
eration, and if you do so with the'Bibleats
your, gOle, you mot ,bepenetrated with the
corivietion,that your ,fallure in, this regard,
is sin against Christ.
It is the appointment of the King-and
Head , of-the Church, that thoseiwhoi employ
their, time and energies in preaching 4,he
Gospel, should receive a competent support
while—"`Even so hath
the Lord• ordained, that .those .who ' presh .
the Gospel, should live of the Gospel:"
This appointment proceeds on the obvious
and genprally'recognized principle of justice,
that the workman is entitled to the products
of his labor—that.the : laiwer is. worthy of
his hire. This: principledi- to obviously
justrthat it is at leaat,partialiy recognized,
iriull the relations of, life; and througiall
the ramifications, ot society. Hence, asks
Paul Who goeth a warfare at any time at
his own charges? Who planteth a vine.
yard, and eateth not of tke fruit thereof ?
Or, who feedeth a flock, and eateth, not.of
the. Milk of the flock 7"
Now,,the 0-oyern,or of the world
has'embodied this obvious principle ,of jus
tice in the laws which- he has promulgated
for ourlukdance in life. Hence, thin same
Apostle continues, "Say I 'these things as a
maul" Am I only, guided by the diotates
of reason r and,the instincts,of humanity, in
giving ntteranoe to the declaration, that la
borers in all departments of industry have
.a right ,to compensation—have a right' to
a support from their labors ? "Pr saith nut
the law the same 8150 -Mir it is written in
the law of Moses; Thowshaltsnotlauzzle the
month of the, ox that Areadoth. out the
Here you see that Go4l.'extendsthis,prin
ciple even to the brute creation. The lux
tienaianimal, that is coercetitulabor in the
service of man, acquires by its.labor the tight
tolie , fed, and this support cannot .he with
held without .sin. May we not, then, well'
say, in, the language of Paul; u translated
by .MaOknight,, ".Doth God take care of
oxen only ? •Or doth be comnand this
ohiefly for , 043. r sakes , ? por our sakes, cer
tainly, it was written, because 'he - who
ploweth, ought to plow 'in hope; and he
who thresheth in hope, ought to-partake •of
his own hope "
If, therefore, God has ordained every
man who is engaged in secular employments,
whatever they May be,- shall receive a coni
pixilation for his labors, would it not be Y 4
marvelously strange if he should make no
provision for the maintenance of those whom
he requires to devote allitheir time, and all
their talents, and all their energies, in the
ministrations-of religion ? It most 'certain

And *behold I have given the children of
Levi all the tenth in-Israel for au inheritance
for the service'which they serve, even the
