Upon leaving this item of the general
subject in these numbers, he does not wish
to be understood ..as opposing union 9neas
ures and batiks. On the contrary, he has
ever. been an advocate and constant promo
ter of their interests, in their proper place.
There are many positions where none but
such should be adopted, or can be success
fully used. But God has constituted this
world in families, and very, much after the
same form are our different church denom
inations constituted.. Long since we estab
lished it as an Old-School Presbyterian
principle, that so fare as means and meas
ures were concerned in doing good, each
denominational family could do, more and
better by using those adapted to their own
peculiarities. Hence, where these various
denominations have Schools attached to in
dividual churches, it is best to use their
own peculiar material—work with their
own tools. This principle is vital to all
family order and success. It may be thought
unimportant in a mere child's singing book.
Nob so. It is the child's aliment'for family
order. It would be equally consistent to
see our fiunilies adapting the •culinary im
plements,•tables, beds, and clothing of oth
er families to sui t our tastes, habitations, and
households, as their family music. Should
we adopt existing. Sabbath-School singing
books, we must havemuch unsuited to-our
wants; 2iuch music unchaste in its style
and' .asMciations, impure in its harmony;
and having no real attractions or -durabilir
ty, being light, secular , airs; or compiled
front - various extracts; with the 'vie* to
bearing the name of some one wishing - to
he esteemed an' author. In this depaet
ment the writer las often been reminded
of the remark made by the lainented Dr. J;
A. Alexander, in reference to another, viz.:
"that sermons composed of extracts could
never •form a consistent whole, but to an at
tentive hearer must expose its joint/vs,
destroy its own purpose and author." SO
with • very much ,modern music. It is 'not '
coherent, destroys its own effect, has noth
ing in it, and you can draw nothing out of
it. An infidel organist who played for a
choir led by the writer, years since, was•
accustomed to enforce this fact thus. When
Dundee, Mear, Old Hundred, or similar
music was selected, he would turn to the
singers and say, " Now you must look out
I have got something to work upon. I can
make my instrument tell." Very much of
the music now in use has nothing in it to
tell, nothing to wear, no fundamental musi
cal principles to draw out to-move the soul;
no richness there. We look for effect, - but
there is none--a-few times performed, and
it becomes insipid.
Years since, the writer spent a season in
Boston, acquiring musical knowledge, and
an acquaintance with musical men;. and
was there privileged to_ sit at the feet of an
American musical Gamalid, whose hooka
have flooded all, our churches, and amassed
for their author an- immense fortune. ' He
had just returned frora a, tour in Europe,
and brought home stacks of new music,
chiefly from Germany. Much of our time
together was spent in selecting and arrang
ing various extracts, with the i view to -a
new book about to appear. In due time it
came forth, with these nicely jointed, bear
ing a new dress and an author's name.
An extensive line of profitable business to
compilers is done in this way, and a most
serious evil to our music and church ser
vices. Sad, indeed, to teach, oar children
and form their taste upon such trash.
From this fact much of our musical talent
is entirely lost to' the Church ;- many of our
best musicians will net join in what they
style "-wishy-washy stuff." This must ever
remain so while others select our music and
prepare our books. Our Church has been
very much like a .district of country once
known to the writer, lying interxnediateof
some fifteen physicians, who called it
Common," where, all could practice at
pleasure ' or send their 'boys to experiment
with all kinds of pills, provided- they were
well sugar-coated. 'lnstead of raising - mit
own men, and fixing our standard, we have
been a C 0971411071: for" et , ely novice to play of
his music books to good, account, until our
whole Church taste has become deterio
rated, and the proper style of music not
appreciated, nor the adaptation of moods and
movements to sentiments and octagons, -
properly understood and regarded. We
have - been borne from our moorings and:,
corrupted in taste by :the continued intro
duction of improper music, through ignorant
or unprincipled teachers, leaders, and sing
ers in our church services. There is now,
under God, a general, inquiry after the old
paths, and a movement toward the use"of
different music, and a more congregational
form of singing. This is -a •happy omen.
Let the Church improve it to her own ad
vantage, chime-in with the spirit, and im
mediately select her men and provide her
material, so that - each department of the
Church, from the Sabbath School• child up,
shall have their musical provision com
plete ; and every member of our congrega
tions their music and hymns before them,.
„It i o join in the general - song, that "young ;
anen and maidens, old men and children,
May praise the, naine of the Lord." This
need not necessarily displace our choirs or
instrumental aid, but stimulate and proper
ly direct both ; i but it must demand of the
Church the provision .of proper material,
that just as she provides her own hymn
book she must also .have -her own. music,
and marry the two- upon the same page;
that every pew in our churches, or person
having the hymn before him, will also
have the music to be performed to it.
Why not? Is there anything wrong- in
this"? Anything imperrilled ? Then: Why
not now y Is this not the time ? the very.
time ? Other Churches are awake, and
awaking to this Movement, as a matter of
general Church interest. Why not our
Church? Our New School brethren have,•
by their General Assembly, appointed their
Committee for this object; and there is, - as
I have learned within the last few days, at
this hour in press, under an able hand;
with a view to an experiment for-their.
benefit, a music book for advanced• musical
culture, admirably-adapted to Ifit niche'of
general church demand, for which nothing
of the kind. has been heretofore prepared—
one of -the-very-books- in these- nuMbers
recommended. Shall we, as usual, wait its
being issued, and thrust into all our church
es, with its adaptation and tenets not our
own ? " While ;they slumbered and slept
the enemy, sowed 'tares." What -will, our
General: Assembly do on this subject at,its
present meeting? is the anxious inquiry of
many a friend to our general interests.
They should provide for the Ivork's being
done; to them it belongs. It can he 'ac
complished ; let it be begun.

For the Presbyterian Banner
Of the Rev. John Smith, a Presbyterian -.Minister,
to his Brother, the Rev. Peter Smith; a Methodist
REV. PETER OMITR :—.vear Brother :
I now come to a subject the very mention
of which most untbrtunately is apt to stir
the'prejudice and sometimes the indigna
tion of Arminians—the doctrine of 'Elec
tion. There are, it is to be feared, large
classes of professed Christians, who, if they
could have their own way, would' quietly
drop such words as elect, election, predes
tinate, as unbefitting • the religion of
rational and enlightened age. ..In.the minds
.of not a fevi, the name of Calvin is asso
ciated with these doctrines just as if john.
Calvin had been the originator of :them,
while these doctrines themselves, deep and'
glorious as the wisdom and love of God,,
are held in ignorant contempt. John Cal
vin was undoubtedly a great man—a very
great'man , but we believe that he had just
as much to do with putting the sun and moon
in the sky, as with the authorship of' these
sublime truths. If,the Genevan theologian
and philosopher had - never opened his eyes
on this.platet, it is'ultogether - likely that
the sun would:-shine by day, and the moon
give her light by night ;`:,and ' lust as
he i • d-
likely , that t e d de
clare that God has mercy on whom he will
have mercy, and hardens whom he will
harden. One 'thing- at least is'certain.
These obnoxious expressions would not' lie
found in the New 'Tekitaineiit,if the sacred
writers, had designed to inculcate the senti
ments of modern Arminianism. ,Ar
minian, ever 'willingly uses lbese expres
sions. 'NO `Methodist minister`, unless' if is
to do battle, ever preaches from tests where
suchterms occur.' Where.would the eighth
and ninth chapters of Romans be,. if the
sentiments of John Wesley -had .liMen the
sentiments , of the Apostle Paul`? What
Arininian of ancient or modern times Could
possibly have.written the thirteenth 'chapter
of Revelation:? Imagine, if 3row.can, my
brother; an honest, straight-forward dis
course by Archbishop 'Hughes, 'from the
text, "In vain do they worship me, teach
ing for doctrines the commandments of
men ;" or one by the Rev. Theodore Parker,
from the fext, " For the time 'Will come
when they will not endure sound d'oetrine,
but after their own lusts shall they heap to
themselves teachers having itching ears."
Now, just - so impossible it is. to imagine =an
honest, straightArward discourse by a
Methodist Efyiseepal preacher, from the
text, " Thou host given him power 'over all
flesh', that he , should give eternal life to as
many es thou hest given ;him ;" 'orfrorn the'
text, All that'the Father giveth me'shall'
come unto me."
The doctrine of personal eleCtion to ho
liness and eternal life is taught in the
Scriptures, or it is not taught there. If
the Bible does not teach this doctrine, we
shall find nothing said about it, or we.shall
find it brought forward only to be con
demned. T ii. he Romish dogmas of transub
stantiation. and purgatory are not any
where mentioned in, the New Testament,
therefore weconclude that there is no such
a place, as purgatory, and'no such a thing
as transubstantiation. ` In, like, manner, if
the words elect, elected, chosen,,predesti
mated,. are not; found applied to individuals
in the Scriptures, then Arminians -are
right, and the doctrine of election is false.
Now what are the facts ? Are these terins,
like transubstantiation and purgatory, no
where mentioned du the Sacred Oracles ?
You know that they'occur again and again.
But this doctrine might be brought lor-
ward` only to have theseal of cendemnation
affixed to it. In that .case these expres
sions would indeed beempioyed, , but they:
would be named only with abhorrence. 'lt
is well known that there is a long - list' of
writers, Pelagian and 'Arminian, by, whom'
the doctrine of personal election to hon..
ness and eternal life has been assailed in
language the most indignant and titter.
In the Methodist book, " Objections 'to
Calvinism," the changes are rung on fore
ordain, predestinate, elect, election ; but all
the English, good and bad, at the author's
Command, :seems inadequate to convey a full
idea of the loathing andliatred of his'soul
for these terms. Let ..the give you te., few
' K It," the doctrine of. election, "renders
the conclusion unavoidable thavGod - is the
responsible author of sin--anthor in the
sense of originator and cause incon
sistent with and destructive of the free
agency Of man - . It - 'destioysfiiiiiiit
countability: In the . dny of judgment it
must place the conscience afd ;judgment of
'the universe on the side of thecondemned,
'and against God." -
t "All therefore, who hoia,to the uncon
ditional election' of a part of mankind to
eternal life, must, to be consistent with
themselves, take into their creed the horri
ble doctrine of reprobation. They must
believe, that in the ages of eternity; God
'determined to create men and angels fOr.
the express purposeto damn themm eteilial
ly that he .determined• to introduce sin,
and harden them in it, that they might be
fit subjects of his wrath! that ibr doing as
they are impelled to do by the irresistible
decree of Jehovah ; they must lie down for
ever under the scalding vials of his ven
genee in the pit of hell! To state this
doctrine in its true character, is= enough to,
chill one's blood, and we are drawn .by all
that is rational in us, to turn . away fioin
such a God with horror,as from the pres
ence of an Almighty Tyrant'
Does the Bible ever.use language such as•
this-? Is this in the .style.of Paul or of
'Peter? , Does the Apostle - say, "God did
not predestinate any to be conformed-to
the image'' . of hi's Soli ? That <God did
not, predestinate his people to the . adep : .
tion of children? That 'God his not
mercy on whorehe will have 'Mercy, but,is
bound to show, mercy to all alike ?. that he
hardeneth not, whom he will harden, since
this would .makehim an infinite %Tyrant?.
Does the Saviour say, "I thank, thee. 0 ra
ther, Lord of he,aven and .earth,ltliat thou
hast not hidthese things from, the wise and
prudent. This 'could never seem-good in
thy sight, -for-it-would-be the height,of-in-.
justice, to hide these things from ,a,,,ny hu
man being ?" 1- This. 'wojitid; TIQ doubt, be
genuine -Artninianism, but , dees t.,the Bible
ever employ such language ? I ask again,
is this in the style'of the - Holy Scriptures?
The.fa,et:is, , the Bible, not . only no where
speaks a wordagainst the. doctrine of'elec
tion, but its whole-teaching is ,in themost
deeidedterms in its•favor.

lie of practical Value; and this small numberotot one has
in it combined the advantages of a family- and manufacturing

except on light fabrics. Therefore Y take :great pleasure -in
stating the important fact that Mr. Heys, the original in

far:less machinery, the Strength, and durability of the maim

delicacy of movement; and ease of. operation peculiar to the
family machine, and which renders this the only machine in

CLOTHING, TINE, AND LABOR SAVED!
INDISP'ENS'ABLE TO HOUSEKEEPERS.
The most simple,: economical, and durable article ever
offered to the public to alleviate the discomforts of wash-day.
It consists of a metal cylinder, with ribs on the halide, and
an interior cylinder of wood, with ribs. There is a space 01
from eta to eight inches between the two cylinders. One
crank turns both cylinders at the same time in opposite direc
tions, rapidly creating a suds, forcing the .water4hrough the
clothes, and effectually removing the dirt. The action of the
water does the work quickly, dispenees entirely with rubbing,
• and: thtis saves thii wear of clothes.
