The Sen's Grentest Sorrow.
rheee is sorrow on tits' sea, iteannot be quiet"—
Nearest thou the moan of the sea 2
A wail from its billows beating?
There's a Mournful whisper wafted to thee,
As its bosom heayes in sympathy
With the story it Seems repeating.
This story it'llas-told before, '
And heart4r4en ones have listened,
From that, surf ! beaten rock against the shore—
Which,eaught the sound in the ages of yore-
Whilst:tears adown their pale cheeks glisteneil.
Those are the words it seems, to sigh,
Or,utter in reoernful measure;
They pound like sad echoes of storms gone by,
Of frantic prayers, of a maiden's cry,
And the ship's last plunge with her treatUre.
" I heard a distant gun boom forth I
what mount its muttering thunder?
'T was a helpless ship:in the boiling trough;
And waves cast ashore with their seething froth,
A mast wits a pale corpse
s lashed under. ;
This corpso—'t was of a maiden fair,. •
And still near that rook she 'a sleeping,
Whilst, far off a lover, crazectby despair,
Yet. grasps in his hand a , tress of brown hair,.
And his watch from that far shore he's lteeping.
Fnr out, through the sea juts a crag
of rock which the oorarpreparei
But on it I see a fluttering rag—
Is it all that is left of abeaoon flag ?
And how came those three skeletons there I
"Of the three, that one perished the last—. •
The one by the flag-staff iying 7 -- .
There alone he watched for the answering mast,
Then with one groan gave up to the Coniering
A skeleton erewhile he was dying.
" Solemnly tolled the good ship's,bell,
The crew on the deek were weeping,
Did they hear on their hearts a funeral knell:?
Did the 4 Angel of. Death' those tears compel?
And what was the old chaplain speaking ?
"True hearts throbbed as the final dirge
Was ohanted by those who loved him,
Whilst with streaming eyes, o'er the vessel's
They lowered their messmate into the,surge,
And the great wave closed above him.r"
But list to the moan, of the sea,
A sadder story it's telling,
Of those Wanda, the haunts of cruelty— ,
And hear'st thou those "Wailings which come to
And the winds with those death - ories swelling?
Ay, well may the sea moan and sigh
For this sad burden of anguish;
'T is a stain on its breast of deepest die,
A shame that is marked by 'every' eye,
Those islands where all yirtues languish;
There passion, theft, and murder keep, •
And menthe brute's naturci.borrow ; • •
There widows shriek from the 'funeral heap,
And their orphans are left to starve and weep—
4th I here is the sea's greatest sorrow.

Anger without Canso. ,
DEAR F— :--Your note, inquiring as
to when our Session , meets, add express
ing a wish,for reasons stated, to transfer
your membership to our church, has been
received, and read with' much interest,'
chiefly of a sorrowful kind. I have none
but the kindest feelings toward you. I have
confidence in your religious character. I
wish we had the accession of, many such
members to our little church. But my
dear F—, I believe it would be doing a
wrong, all roun - d=to your pastor and to
his church, to you, to us, and, above all,
to the cause of Christ, to 'have you come to
us, for the reason you assign.
The visitation ot the sick is, undoubted
ly, the duty of every pastor. The time of
sickness is a time when the benefits of re
ligion are specially needed, and also, when
they are more likely, than in health, to be
prized and desired, Such a season should,
therefore, be promptly embraced by the
faithful minister, to comfort the sorrowful,
to arouse the thoughtless,'to teach the igno
rant. But it often happens, in a large and
scattered congregation, that persons may be
laid, low on the bed of pain, and the minister
not know it. They may desire to see him,
they may wonder why he does not come,
and even blame him for not coming, when
he is not at all aware that any affliction has.
befallen them. , This, Ldoubt not, was so
in your case, for I have often : -heard your
pastor's assiduity and kindness spoken of in
the highest terms.
Now, my dear h`—„permit me to make
a few remarks on this ,subject, and. I do it
with the confidence that a man of your good
sense and piety will see the force of them.
1, The Saviour has made it the duty of
his people, when sick, to let their minister
know it, and to ask his attendance. ”Is
any among you sick ? let him call for the
elders of the ohurch." And this is dicta
ted by the nature of the case; for,
2. The pastor's retired way of living :
puts him out of the way of hearing flying
rumors, and he is less likely, than others,
to hear of cases of sickness that occur in
the distant parts of his congregatio,a. Or,.
3. He may be more engaged, than
usual, in his study; or,
4. Perhaps he is visiting, for several,
days, in a remote part of his congregation..
5. He may be sick himself, and unable
to go out to visit any one.
in either case, it would be hard to blame
him. The most faithful and vigilant pas
tors, you will see then, may need to be speci
ally informed of eases of sickness that re
quire his notice. And how wisely did our
Saviour, by his Apostles, inculcate this as
a duty—a duty just as binding on the sick,
or their friends, as that of visiting the sick
is upon the pastor. '
I feel assured thatAere are no" ministers
in our ehurch, who would willfully neglect
so important a branch of their official' duty.
The scene is often extremely trying,. I
know; but the true pastor will not shrink
from it. And often, too, it is highly , g,rat
ifying to his. Christian feelings, and he .de
rives as much benefit from beholding the
patience, cheerfulness,. hope and faith of the
sick and dying Christian, as he imparts by
his kind counsels and prayers.
Dear Freconsider your half-formed purpose, and do not indulge an unkind feel
ing toward your good pastor. Ile would
have visited you, had he known of your
sickness. God has mercifully restored
your health ; let your thank-offering be an
increased devotion to his cause. You have
had an admonition of the uncertainty of
life and all its common enjoyments; let
your spared life be consecrated to the Di
vine Saviour and his Church. Sustain the
hands of Mr. It—, who is an earnest and
laborious man, and who, in his extensive
charge, leaves undone as few of his duties,
as any minister of my acquaintance.
I shall be happy, at any time, to see you
at my own table, or at the Lord's in our
Church, but I trust you will be persuaded
of the propriety of retaining your home
connexion, where it now is.
With kind regards, ,I am yours sincerely,
. ,
Meeting of the New-Lisbon Presbytery , ,
CoNcoan, Ohio, September 26, 160.
Presbytery met at 12 o'clock, M., and was
opened 'with prayer.
The Rev. J. 1.3. Miller preached the Presbyte
rial sermon from Ecclesiastes ii: 10—" What
soever thy hand lindeth 'to do, do it with thy
might, for there is no work, nor device, nor
knowledge, nor wisdom in the grave, whither
'thou goest,:"
The Rev. Wm. D. McCartney, of the Presby
tery of Coshocton, the Rev. John N. Swan, of
the Presbytery of tort - Wayne, and Mr. Williant
S. Livingston, a licentiate. of the. Presbytery of
Chillicothe, were received into this Presbytery.
, On motion, it was resolved that in the opinion
of this Presbytery, "the position of the : General
Assembly, on the question of slavery, is the
muse us it was in 1818, and that the paper of 'the
last General , Assembly, in answer 'to overture No.
82, is a reaffirmation of that Action.
The following plan of special religious effort
WAS adopted
1., That if practicable, previously to our, next
'stated Meeting, an entire week be spent in each
one of our congregations, , by our ministers' go
ing among them, two and two, by mutual agree-
2. That, where the Session, approve, .in addi
tion,to public religious service, daily, family visi
tation, and congregational prayer-meetings, be
attended to.
3. That in vacant .congregations, one of the
visiting committee remain over the Sabbath
mediately succeeding, and administer the Holy
Communion, or at least preach to the people.
4. That the Congregations thus visited be
solemnly admonished--to offer fervent prayers
to the God of alt. grace for his- blessings: aipon
these .efforts for their good, and to, attendAili
gently upon these religimis services.
6. That when lie objection of weight demand

Action of the Presbytery >of Blairsville on
The , Committee appointed to inplire whether
any, and if any,what further action ought to be
taken' by this Presbytery te" promote' the , cause
- or:Temperance, present ithe, following report :
It is implied in. the Minute, which records our
appointment, that our Presbytery has 'acted
heretofore ::on "this subject,: Andy it 'is a fact
which our records will attest,
,thatAlimi they ganization' of 66. Preltiytel, we avhnous
times recommended united' effort to revolutionize
the.habits of society in relation to the use of in- :
toxicating liquors, and to banish the drinking
usages which had so long prevailed. As a Pres
bytery, our testimony has been firm and uniform
in favor of total abstinence froni all that can in
toxicate. And we have -no reason to ,doubt that
the example and, influence of all our ministers ?
nearly, if not, quite, all our elders, and a 'very
large majority of our members, has been; and is,
perfectly consistent with this testimony...
The Committee is directed to inquire whether
any,' and if any, what:further action 'is required
of, 'Presbytery on this. subject The question, let
it beremembered,is not what our .Legislature
ought to do', nor what the community . at large
ouglat•to dos but what is the, duty of this Presby
tery in, the premises.
,T,o this question• we, shall
strictly confine ourselves. '
It isitt'moUrrtful facttliat , there ' arc yet many
who •attend upon our ministry, and some members
of our
,oliiirches, who continue to countenance
and encourage the traffic in and 'useiof intoxi
cating drinks, some by, their example, and others
by defending the traffic and the use: That these •
persons Tare in error 'that they ,are: not , 'only
standing in, the way of the, good which the , ex
ample and - influence of their brethren would
otherwise accomplish, but laying a' dangerous
snare for,the young and,ineaperienced ..wer are
fully 'persuaded. And toward these Persona we
certainly'have a duty to perforin. It'is not our
duty to denounce thero•or quarrel with them..he
cause they will not comply with what appears to
us to be - .the plain demand' of duty ;' but'it is
certainly rineurnbent on us to do all in our power
to awaken them• to a. sense of their responsibility,
convince them of the error of their wity,' and in=
duce them to_abandon it. • '
But beside this class, there is another- still
more - exposed to danger, attd`to wkom our &ill
gations are still , greater:' It is the youth who
'are rising up in our families and congregations.
While there was agitation and discussion of this
subjectin, society, the riaingzrace, as they became
capable.of reflection, were,warned of the danger
of tampering with strong' drink, and armed
against temptation. But if :we •allow the discus
sion to cease, and make little or no effort, to en
lighten the young on this subject, many of
them are likely to•fall,into- the suave through our
neglect; The. Committee believe, therefore, that
something like the followinm b recommendations
Should be'sent.down to the churches under our
let. Presbytery recommend to all our pastors
and'supplies to introduee this subjectoccasion
ally in their public ministrations, and labortto
convince their hearers not only of the exceeding
Sinfulness of overturning the reason. and blunt
ing thetonscience by actual inebriation; but the
ensnaring nature of this
,vice, and the fearful
danger of treating an appetite for the 'drink of
the. drunkard.
2d. We recommend to all the elders and private
members of our churches, to embrace every op
portunity, in their intercourse with each other
and, with society, to testify. ,against those drink
ing usages that have been productive .of so much
'mischief, and of which it is morally certain the
fruits will be evil, only evil, so long and so far
as they prevail. Let persuade you that
nothing, 'or next to nothing; has been accom
plished by" the efforts of past years. Anxious
as some are to have it believed that all these
efforts have been tideless, no one acquainted with
the history of nur country,' in reference to the
use of intoxicating, drinks, can doubt that., a
great and salutary change has been effected
within the last thirty years. We exhort you,
on the other hand, to close your ears Against
the cry which some have raised, that moral sun
iron has accomplished all that 'it ennAccomplish
in preventing intemperance. To say nothing of
others, there are multitudes rising up amongst
us every year, on whom moral suasion has never
been tried;: they were children in the, days of
Temperance Societies ; and to take for granted
that' instruction, and argument, and pertuasion
can be of no use to deter them from taking the
first step,,toward. intemperance, is not only un
warranted; it is vain attempt to excuse" indo
lence ancisltith. Wefind no fault with any for en
deavoring to obtain better legislation on this
subjeOt ; what we blame is, yielding to the idea
that this is4/1 that can and ought to be done.
3. We recommend - to each., of our - Sessions ,to
draw up a pledge of total abstinence from •all
Participation in the manufacture, sale, or use-'of
intoxicating drinks... Let, this..pledge berelfd to
the congregation, and information given that
each member of the SessiOn; and other .members
of the congregation, if the Session think proper
to name others for that purpose, will be furnish
ed with a copy of this pledge, and will receive sig-
Jtatures at any time; and let m an invitation, be
`extended to all persons, old an7f yointg,"male and
female; to affix their names. This has been tried
ii one,„at least, of our congregations, and, we
desire to see it fairly'tried in all others. It seems
to have this ;advantage 'over the old plan ofTem:-
perance Societies, that ,it is .not .cumberedwith
an organization which is liable to die, out.
'whilst, on the other hand, it pOliSeSEteEr all the
advantages of -an organized. Society:. The; Sett.

on can call a 'temperance Meeting, and Make
provision for having addressees 'deli:trend 'when
ever they think the cause can be promoted there
by., If anT - ttre., charged, with violating' thiS
pledge, the Session can : take action .privately to
bring them to a sense of their duty, or if - this
fail, strike off their names front the pledge.", At
the same time, those who sign this pledge will
be at liberty to unite with the members of other
churches, -or with,persons outside of the Church,
in an organisation which Aloy l be
adapted to promote the same cause in the emit,
munity at . large. But we earnestly exhort:all
the merabers of istii thurchei, to unite in this ef 7
fort to save, at least, the children of 4he Church
from the dangerous and ensnaring, tinges ;which
are still kept up .bye plass - Who,prefer their own
gains, or the gratification ofAeir own afilielites
to the . welfare of society.' And'we trust that a
pledge in the hands of the Session, if parents
and persons having influence will come forward
and sign it, and encourage'the young to do the
same, may be the means of,saving many of the
rising ramfromdestrnotion. ,
.LONDON, Scliteniter2's, 1860.'
ARMY over , the Papal.forces have been. un
interrupte&and 'overwhelming. The com,
hat of Castleharda, in which ,Lamoriciere
was entirely ' eVerthrown, and 'the
body of his army (inchiding One hUndied
and , sixty officers;) compelled' to' capitulate;
Was of a very- desperate 'character.! His
object, after having previously placed eight
thousand men in garrison at Ancona, was
to make his way across the country to that
fOrtress with his eleven thoniand. The
Sardinians anticipated his. plans,"his path
was-barred on every side, and he was , com
pelled to fight. , To do,Vim and, his troops
justice, the disproportion: of the respective
forces was great---eleven thousand against
forty thousand. Among 'these killed on
this occasion, waSlGeneral:Pinuidan, second
infoommand in , the Pontifical army. He
led three successive attacksiAgainst one qi
the Sardinian positions, the last, re-,
ceived wounds of which he died the same
evening: He was a verY'eininent Man
among the French Legitimist iparty, , and
was , the first Amines , in France:
His sympathies naturally:were with estab

Pope and the Papacy. His body has.beeri

furnishes a rallying , point for , the ; party;
bodyof the clergy were 'to start from_ the

funeral sermon. 'The Legitiimsts

at - the - battle in iihich LamOriciese himself
was defeated., they fell in largeniimbers into
the hands of the Sardinians. The Times
has poured. a torrent of ridicule on, their
heads, and on their main abettors, the Irish
priesthoOd. Referring'to the - six hundrdd
prisoners of the Irish Brigade, taken' at
Spoleto, it 'says : ' '
' We 'must hive a statue erected' to Ireltnad'a

the great liislrattPtiiity upon this Metropolis its
inhabitants' ha4e;=7of ',course, been 'impatient 'for
farther news- The Sardinians are treating their
prisoners with 'a contempt Which seems to favor
the idea that, they obtained 'them: without Much
trouble, and that, they do not reckon tho,captivi
ty of,, six hundred' of the Pope's. Irish as an
kohieVement. They are the 'Pope's Soldiers, - not
ours... We, never had

much emotion upon the shame'of these outcasts.
To do the Irish. justice, they haye, plenty
of "pluck" in the hitttle field, - and proba

they fight Thr a -bad' cause—that of the
Church and , despotismr—as at the Boyne,
under James IL, they are , generally beaten.
The whole Cullenite party in Ireland are
crestfallen, by reason Of the defeat' of Li
moriciere. All the money which they
raised from the poor deluded people—many
pawning their clothes to give the shilling
slimanded as the lowest sum on the Popes
'Collection Sunday--is Worsetlian lost.
In truth all Papal Europe is' imPoverished
more and more.. The " Peter's -pence,",
amounting to a quarter of a million ster well as the very large sums raised
otherivise, have all descended into .an
infernb nom which there will be no reSur
reetion. More than this : in every new
province'or:kingdom of Naples liberated by
the,present'revolution, there is the donfls
cation for state uses of the ecclesiastical
property, and especially thafOf the Jesuits.
This has been the case both in Sicily and
at Naples. Add to all this, that, as in the
great Italian conflicts of 1859, Popish na
tions•are destroying one another and that
the papacy is falling fast under • the blowsof its own• adherents—Piotestint nations
