And there - muit , be substance too;

Though the light define it true.
Over merry sunshine's shoulder,
Ever doth the shadow peep;'
Never, do we smile in gladness,
But to turn aside and weep,
Yet it is comfort, in our trials,
That our heavenly rather sends,
Smiles with tears, as light with shadow,
Gloriously its lustre blends.
Days on earth are as a shadow,
Dark are they, and 0 -as fleet ;
Thus from gloom a hopewo borrow,
Aiming us our ills to meet.
When from heat of warfare fainting, -
When by adverse winds we're borne; •
0 how sweet, our Rocks cool shadow,
Sweet its shelter fromthe Morin.
When the clouds of sorrow' gather,
Nothing earthly comfort brings;
Sweet, 0 Lord, to make our refuge,
'Neath the shadow of thy wings.
When in death's dark shadowy valley,
In that fearful . night of gloom;
Give us light, and safely guide us,
To that land beyond the tomb;
Where none weary wait for shadows,
Where is substance, where is light,
Bliss immortal, day eternal;
Farewell shadows! farewell night!

Second Church, Pittsburgh.
The house erected by this congregation
was opened for public worship on Sabbath,
the 24th of June. - An appropriate sermon
was preached to a very large audience, 'by
the pastor, on 'the words, "Ye shall rev
erence my sanctuary."—Deut. xix:
In the afternoon the pulpit was occupied
by Dr. Swift, who had been for many years
the efficient and beloved pastor of this'
church. He selected for his text the sixth :
verse of the twenty-third Psalm, " Surely
goodness and mercy shall follow me all the
days of my life, and I will dwell in the'
house of the Lord forever." The house
was again filled, and the preacher was evi
dently deeply interested. It afforded the
greatest satisfaction to his numerous friends
in this congregation to see with 'What
earnestness, clearness, and pathos, this aged
servant of God, the pastor of their earlier
years, is still able Co deliver the message of
his Master. Some passages of his dis•
course, when alluding to events in the his
tory of the church during his own pas
torate, were deeply affecting, and brought'
tears to many a listener's eye. It has sel-
dom been our privilege to witness such a
scene, and we presume it will be a long
time before we see another, equally inter
esting. The evening service was con - armed
by th Rev. Mr. Paxton. Long before the
time to commence, the house was filled to
its utmost capacity, and many were obliged
to turn away for want of room. There
could not have been less than from sixteen
hundred to eighteen huudied persons
present. Mr. Paxton's text was the twenty
fifth verse of the one hundred 'and eight-4
eenth Psalm, " 0 Lord, I beseech thee,
send now prosperity ;" and seldom, we ap
prehend, has any congregation had the
privilege of listening to a more apposite
and eloquent discourse. - The immense
audience hung upon the lips of the forcible
and graceful preacher, and every one
seemed to regret the termination of his ad
This large and elegant structure is 10- -
cated in the - heart of the city, and very
convenient of access to those who reside in
Allegheny. The lot on which it, stands has
a front on Penn Street of one hundred and
ten feet, and is• one hundred and twenty
feet deep. It is bounded on the East by
Irwin Street, sixty feet wide, and on the
West by a twenty-foot alley. Thus there
is afforded an abundance of light, and
a - free circulation of air. The corner
stone was laid on the 23d of August, 1858,
Dr. Howard officiating, assisted by the
Revs. Drs. Elliott, Campbell, M'Kinney,
Plumer, and Jacobus. and the Rev. Mr.
The building has a front on Penn street
of seventy feet, and is ope hundred and six
feet deep. The basement is fifteen feet in
the clear, and the main story thirty-five feet.
It has an entrance vestihule of fifteen feet,
with spacious stairways leading to the main
story and galleries. The basement is so
divided as to afford a lecture-room of forty
by sixty feet; a Sabbath School room, thirty
five by forty feet; an infant school-room and
a Bible class-room, each twenty by twenty
seven feet. The auditorium has side and
a chair galleries, the latter furnished with
a superior organ, from the manufactory of
Jardine & Son, of New York.' On the
main floor there are one hundred and fifty
pews, which will comfortably seat some eight
hundred or nine hundred persons; and in
the side galleries forty-eight' pe*s; • which
will accommodate about three hundred.
The style of architectUre is known as.
modernized Italian. The building has two
towers in front, one of which is surmount
ed by a belfry, and having a height of one'
hundred feet; the other by a spire; having
a height of one hundred and sixty-five feet._
The front of the basement is of cut stone,
as tire also the corners of the building; the
remainder of the front and sid9 are of
brick, plastered, with Roman cement, col;
ored to imitate stone; and tastefully orna
mented. The ceiling of the auditorium is
cove form, and richly painted in fresco.
The wood work' is painted to imitate wal
nut, and light is admitted. through windows
of stained and enameled glass. At night
the audience room is lighted by fotir Eng-f
lish "sun lights,"
' each containing, twenty
seven burners, which diffuse a clear mellow
light that penetrates every part of the
room. The lights arc so arranged as to
serve the purpose of ventilation as well as.,
illumination. An opening three feet in
circumference is made in the ceiling around
each light, and pipes, leading to ventilators
on the comb 'of the roof, carry off the
smoke, heat and nnoonsumed gas, and, of-
course, keerti a constant current of air.
These arrangeMents, together with some
others, render this as well lighted andien=
tilated a public ` buildingas is anywhere to
be found, and altogether, we presume, there_
are few more convenient, commodious and.

For the Prestolerian Banner
Of the R ev. john Smith, a Presbyterian Minister,
to his brother, the Rev. Peter Spiith, a Methodist
LETTER XX. ,
REV. PETER S MTH :--_Dear Brother :
The whole controversy on the doctrine of
election hinges on this—claim or no claim.
If mankind,- as sinners, can lay claim • to•
the mercy of God, it is a- waste of time to
argue the question; Arminians are right,
and the doctrine of election is false. If
such a title is inherent in sinners, we Cal
vinists are in a grievous error, and 'deserve
all the abuse we are accustomed to receive.
But have sinners such a claim ? Is such a
title inherentin rebels and traitors ?.,Must
God, in order to be just, show mercy to his
enernisie It is a remarkable fact that
this is taken for granted by Arrninians,
whenever they make their attacks on = the
doctrine of election. Our system of the
ology knows nothing of claim on. God.
We should be ashamed of it if it did. An
error so serious can spring only from loose
views of the nature of sin. Ido not; in
saying so, desire to intimate that we take
in a complete and perfect view of this
awful evil. We do not. The human fac
ulties are too weak; the area of human
vision is too contracted; 'the theatre' on
which sin displays its tragic career is4oo
small; the years of.time are too few, to
furnish an opportunity to master even in
thought this frightful theme. It would
require an imagination vigorous enough to.
sear with unfaltering pinions to the inac
cessible heights of the eternal throne; an
understanding powerful enoughto investi
gate and comprehend the full sense of in
finite goodness, infinite holiness, infinite
justice; and an eye keen enough to pierce
the abysses of guilt and the abysses of woe
into which a rebel creature pluriges, in. its
audacious attempts to set at defiance the
authority of the blessed Creator. But
where is a created being possessed of
powers so capacious, to be found ? Not On
earth. Not in heaven ; for even heaven
itself 'could not, from the most gifted of
her gifted sons, furnish abilities adequate
to such :a task.
But while in the absolute sense the
dreadfiil impOrt of sin lies not within
reach of created mind, through the opera
tion of the Holy Spirit, sinners themselves
are enabled to understand that sin is ,the
direst of evils—that it is in truth the only
real evil. The conscience, enlightenedund
awakened, threatens in a voice of thunder,
and the sinner trembles before a holy God.
Propose to such a man, prostrate before the
footstool of mercy, to address his Maker in
the terms which Arminians •employ in as
sailing the doctrine of the 'Divine sover
eignty, and his whole soul would 'revolt at
such daring impiety. He would sooner
consent, to -have a millstone tied to his neck,
and to be cast into the depths of the sea.
Why, then, do your writers and preachers
make use of language in argument which
no sane man would ever venture to employ,
in prayer? And what must be the force
of objections which, though they may im
pose on the unthinking multitude, the mo-,
merit they are converted into the language
of prayer, become blasphemy •
In my ast letter I quoted rim .'kToSter's....
f' Objections to. Calvinism,"- to , show :that.
Ithe fundamental -idea' of Arminianism, as
far as it departs from the teachings of the
Bible is, that sinners as sinners, and because
they are sinners, have a just and' legal
claim on the mercy of God. I will now
quote from a greater than Mr. Foster, the
Rev John Wesley, to prove the same thing.
This is. Mr Wesley's language : " Are you
sure that God might justly have passed by
all men ? I deny it. That God might
justly, for my unfaithfulness to his grace,
have given me up long ago, is true, but
this concession supposes me to have had'
grace." The father -of Methodism is wil-;
ling to concede that for unfaithfulness to- ,
grace,:. God might.in justice have left him
to himself, but he wishes it to be distinctly:
understood that when he concedes this, it is
only on the supposition that grace is re : .
ceived. Grace must first be bestowed:
Only-neglect of grace could justify God in
passinghy Mr. Wesley. This .is truly,re
markable,language. God had not the right.
to pass by the Rev John Wesley! The:
fact, is the notion that sinners have a claim
to a. measure of grace, Underlies the whole
system of 'Arminianisth., and permeates- all ,
its parts. - Give up this claim and where
would you begin your assaults on Calvinism?
Give up, this claim, and what, my dear,
brother, would. become of you, at your neat
Annual Conference ? Give up this claim,
and Arminianism gives•up the ghost.

More Sights and,lncidents.
Lovely was the Monday morning I spent
in rambling through Steubenville. This is
an old city; badly built, but so situated as
to have secured commercial greatness long
ere this, had all of its moneyed citizens been
as holiest as they , were energetic. It has
suffered Minh from bank infigtions and
bankruptcies. Its mineral, coal and water
privileges are many. These, however, I,
pass, to note the great educational feature
of the place, viz.: The Female Seminary:
An 'institution beautiful for situation, ven
erable for age, honored for its fruits, and,
admired for its discipline and good govern
ment by all lovers of sound learning.
At the depot I heard some gentlemen
speaking favorably of a sermon that Mr.
Patterson,the young pastor of the SeCond
church, ad preached the evening before,
from the test, "But he could not be hid."
In the cars for Wheeling I found both,
the :Banner and the Presbyterian, overflow
ing with highly interesting news from. the
Assembly. In' the former I read " A.'s"
editorials, and in the latter "Neshannock's" ,
graphics, with special interest. Andwha,t

From here we went to the residence of a
dear friend living near Triadelphia. A
communion was in progress in the church
known, as , t' 'The Forks of Wheeling,'
where the late Dr. James Hervey preached
for nearlyhalf a century. The old edifice
is stone. It evinces the power of time.
A generation sleep in dust before its walls
It, too, is soon to fall.; A new church is
to take its place immediately, and this
communion is the last ever to be celebrated
within its sacred precincts. Bro. Paul, of
Wheeling, administered it. But the con
gregation are regularly served by Rev. Mr.
Birch, of Washinp.-ton , College, Pa., with
whom the people are highly pleased, and to
whom they expect to tender a call.
Again we return to Wheeling, and after
a few hours' strolling' about its streets,
start for Cadiz, 0., viet. Mingo. We-took

men" dishonor God by their advocacy or
palliations of the degrading practice of
pugiliSm, and 'also of the demoralizing
scenes of the race-course. The Lords spent
several precious hours in discussing a
“.,Light Weight Bill," brought in by Lord
Bedesdale, in reference to handicap races,
which was rejected. Lord Derby's speech
indicated how' familiar he was with the
turf, and while admitting inseparable
evils" from the-races condemned, he nei
ther proposed a remedy for these, nor showed
any desire for a aeneral break up of the
gambling - system, which makes such havoc
in reonnexion with the system." The-Bench

that it was not their business. Well, if We

receive, instead of reprimand or punishment,
promotion and reward from the Government of
Naples. (Rear, hear.) With regard to the last,

'favorite in,society. No doubt, he put off
the day of repentance until a later period
in life, when the pleasures of youth should ,

Poor 14---1 - that day never dawned on

,horse suddenly ,became.frightena and Un
manageable, and,he WRS thrown with great'
violence to the groUnd. A crowd quickly
gathered around' him, and, he was, conveyed
atunce to the nearest house. It was evi
dent that he was very seriously injured,
„and a physician was immediately senf,for.
When he arrived, the young man, though
suffering intensely, looked him steadily, in
the face, and inciuirecl in a firm voice:
DOetor, must-I die? Must I die, sir ?,
Do uot deceive, me in this matter."

made no preparation for`this event. I have
heard of impenitent:young men thus sud

that should be one. Oh ! tell me, tell
me what I must do to be saved?" He was
told that he must "repent of his sins, and

be saved?" he continued to cry,-with an eye
glaring with desPeration. But agonized
friends °mild not-save him. Death would
not wait for explanations, and thus crying
out for aid and instruction he sank back
i his, pillow, and in another, moment he
was n eternity.
Emulation. as a Notiyo to. Study.
The intellectual form of selfishness is
emulative ambition; a radical disorder in
our, chobls and cur 'scholarship'. We put
our pupil:3AG° much in this race, not that
they may attain a' common good, but that
they, may outstrip each other. To be wise,
to be strong, to be masters of life, wielders
of bright weapons against all ignorance and
'wrong—this is not made the aim--:but the
poor - complacency- of looking back 'on the
rest. A =hateful fire is set runnine through
the fresh growths of these unsordid breasts,
which scorches, blight's, and blackens,
wherever' its hot topgue can find a generous
feeling to sting. Why talk . of following
'knowledge for its own sake, if our practice
teaches children to prize it only as a ladder
of renown, or as a price paid for applause.?
But, 'my friends, the moment yon carry
your , - objections to'the corauctors' of 'educe,
tion, they tell you the emulative Plan is
the :only 'one that the previous management.
''of-their scholars allows them . to use, with
the 'least hope of getting out of them any
'tolerable amount-of work:"' That is to say,

if they ;went 'l(i 'the . prayer-tnieting and
".got religion," as he called it, he would

by her father, standing with. the Bible in
" Maria," said he, " I have been told
that you have publicly professed, to-night,
that you' have religion . Is that so 7"
"father" the , girl, "I love yon;
and I•think( I love the Saviour, too."
Opening his Bible to a blank leaf, and
pointing with his finger, he said :
" Maria, those name is that ?"
" It is'thy name, sir."
"Did I not tell you that I would disin
herit.you if you got religion ?"
" Yes sir.,
",Well, I must:do it. You cannot come

"Your father is very sick, and thinks be

go to bell for his wickedness, and the griev

The True Gentleman.
Theallowing sketch is called the por
trait of a trne gentleman, found in an old
Manor House in Gloucestershire, written
and framed, and •hung over the mantle
piece of a. tapestried sitting-room :
" The true gentleman is God's servant,
the world's master, and, his own man; vir

contentment his rest, and happiness his re
wan:l'4 his Father, the Church is

can, and all his business by the way is to
make himself and others happy. Take
him in two words—a Man and a Christian."
How to Die Happy
,Glorious words these, to which I heard a
dying woman respond, not long ago, with
a solemn burst of praise : "Is he not a
precious Saviour, so great and good, and
willing to save all us poor sinners ?"
She, was lying on a ham). bed, in the
dreary, infirmary-ward of a work-house ;
and, the. power of faith and love to create
a happiness independent of circumstances.

answer to the inquiry, "You know him,
then, and love him ?" .
" Yes, I do knew him, and love him.
13is.presence makes a heaven of this room."
"If you heaped up my bed with gold
and'silver," she added; "if you could give
me 'the Queen's carriage and horses, and
here palace and her garden, and all her
beautiful flowers, and health and strength
to enjoy it all, I would not take them, if
they would hinder me from going home to
my Saviour.' They talk• of the pains of
dying; Whit' will thg"f be to me,? They
will but hurry me to heaven and to Jesus."
