A Life,
14 -I will not , spend this, year as I have
spent tlke last' one." Thua has many a soul
resolved` al the commenemart of a new
- year. In how many instances has the reso
lution been kept ?
Chriitian reader, will you spend the year
Upon which you have entered as you spent
the last year ? Do you ,not need a new life
for'the new year ? Will you not resolve,
bY the help of God's Spirit, to lead a new
Does not God require it of you? Does
he 'mot require you to seek first the king
dom of. God and his• righteousness_? Have
you, .during the entire year that is past,
song ht first the kingdom of God ? His it
been youx aim every day, nnd every hour to
beeome'holy ? Have you 001 times, and
in every, action, sought to please God'? been 18' earnest in your efforts to
make othern happy, and'to promote their
saltoation; as Christ would have you to be ?
Have you prayed as much and as fervently
as it has been your privilege and duty to
do ? Have you made all possible progress
in the divine. life ?
If .not, then you need to enter upon a
different. coin* of action—upon a new life.
God requires it of you; and `that is a reason ,
which ought to have the greatest possible
weight , with you.
Your-profession of attachment to Christ
requires 4it. By becoming a member of the
Church, you have professed to give your
self wholly, to Christ. Yon have professed
to recognize the truth of the Div ine decla
ration., ." Ye are not your own, ye are bOught
with a price:" Has there not been, during
the past yeari'a great want of consistency
bet Ween your 'profession and your practice?
Has there' been, in your conversation, in
your mode of transacting business, in =your
general bearing, that which would lead
men to recognize you as Christ's man ? as
one who was doing his work ? Has any
one 'said of you, on .se'ein,c , you at thecorn
xnunion. table, " I did not know that he was
a professor of religion:?' . " Have you ne
glected the -meeting for social prayer ?
Have you loft' your pastor to do the work
of the Lord alone.?
The answer you may be constrained to
give•to some of these questions may Skov
t &it your professionuf attachment to Christ
idquires you to enter upon a new life.
' Again, your past life` may not have been
Satistitatory to you. Airas there been an
alacrity in doing duty _which has rendered
your life `joyous ? Have you had that peace
of mind, that confidence'in Gad, that look
ing forward to your " happy home," that
consciousness of thelove of God shed abroad
in the soul, which the 'Bible speaks of, and
which you know some 'Christians experi
ence? If not, your life hits been far from
satisfactory to yourself, and has I , isome far
short of pleasing God. You need to enter
upon a new life.
It is possible for you to enter upon a new
life. The means of so doing are still.with
in your .reach. Christ is waiting for you -to
do so. 'f be Holy Spirit will aid you. Form
the solemn, life-influencing, life-enduring
resolution, to= enter upon a new life with
the now year.
From week to week we will endeavor,

To the Soldiers, on Preserving Health,
Every patriotand =philanthropist will re
joice,at every effortto preserve your lives.
Bram fatigue, and , exposure, and climatp,
you , are especiallyliable ;to disease. Such
of you. as may read .the following sugges
tions, Will lend them, to, your comrades.
Yon will particularly remember the poor
soldier, who marnot have friends to send
some, comforts for thwbbdy, nor any
thing for his mind.
Let me tell you, noble soldier, that
almost all diseases are caused by o a,cheek of
perspirotion and want of action on the skin
to, whichyou are peculiarly liable. Atten
tion .to prevent this, may not overcome.ex
cesses in eating and drinking,. and wrong
indulgences; but if you will deny yourself
of these, and if you can attend to outward
heat and action on the Skin, you will or
dinarily, by the blessing Of Providence,
escape sickness..
, 1. Then let your body, and especially
your.,back, be well rubbed with a, rough
eloth r morning and 'evening, preceded oc
casionally by water applications; butalways
leave it dry, and red with heat.
2. If overtaken with chilliness, hasten
to this :operation, and to heating yourself
and lying with the feet to the fire or fur
nace. If'costivelia piece of rhubarb in the
toot, as large as a bean ; or gentle physic
may by next day-set you right. *lf there
is a coated tongue and fever, if you can,
call your surgeon; but not without using
outward means, frequently. A large num
ber of physicians make the stomach-the
only battle-ground against disease,
3.. If you are elided with diarrhea or'
fl.yseritar,y, destroy the inirit.ediate cause of
at, by using one-fourth of tea-spoonful or
pore of good soda, in water ,• or, if it is not
at ,hand, take your best woncrash'es and`pour

strong to taste it. If there, is &tendency
toward typhoid fever, or •continned dyeen
tery,.Whioh you can partly tell by the dry
ness of the tongue and:disobier of the head,
, with -some sourness of the =stomach, often
;known as heart-butot,t still 'ase 'the. soda!, or
lye, witla theontwarimeans r and;keep quiet
and lie with, something .warm`to your feet,'
whatever else may bp done. You might
have sent you, in a tetter, to have on hand
in ease of absence from --a phyairain;-five
grains of Sulphate of Morphia; which,
though appearing.sinalkwould maketwenty
„doses when divided. One r or. -two, or.three
, of these,,four honrs.-apart, ; might stop the
bowel complaint and lease4pain. Use it, no
longer than is necessary, and be• careful not
to , shut ,up and acrid matter. By a
pill or two of,Nue, mass,. or two or three
doses of calomel, ,A few hours apart, each,
two grainsoihink would'be about the size
of a small pill, (and with which should,be•
combined the one-quarter of a grain 'of
Morphia, if the bowel complaint continues,)
you may carry off fetid matter ; also, by
using, some hours afterwards, about a table-
Spoonful of magnesia ' •or that much :of
castor oil. - But much ,physic will bring
back the distress. , such a case 'your
1 drinks should be warm„ and made of slip
, pery , elm, sassafras-pith, barley or :rice
water. In, theabsence of ground, mustard,
you can have applied to your stomach and
bowels,' hot ashes, salt, or flannel. The,
cleansing of the 'tongue will show that
calomel is nolonger lamasery. After the
disease is removed;the stomach may be
strengthened"-by the use ,of, wild chery
tree bark, water, a n d ,y• atill be sweetened
with soda or weak , lye ;; but, avoid the
ler's pies, and other indigestible food, or
you will soon be worse than ever.
4. Colds and coughs should be early in
tercepted by Using the outward meansmen
aimed, and if bilious, a little gentle physic.
Y e ur fellow-soldiers-can 'scatter a pleurisy
by continued rubbing ;before the fire. If
you have liquov,,orly use it en the outside,
by 'heating it:in a little cup, and then set
it on fire and stand over it, surrounded with
nothing but your blanket, till you begin to
sweat. If you • sweat much, at any time,
remember to'have your skin dried and ex
cited before, yon, rise ago out. Adapt
your clothing to.the changes, of the weather.
Do not atand, or, sit, in a draft of. ind after
sickness or sweating.

cial•preparations to, celebrate the • Bicenten
ary day of the ejectment of two thousand
ministers (by the 'poising of the Act of
Uniformity,) from , the Ohurch of England.
I have been 4ately 'reading a," History-of
the Church England, by the Rev:3)r.
Short. It was written when he was Rector
of the Parish' df d ßlOomsbirg, London. He
is' noir-the aged BiShop'uf St: AeoplOn.
Wales. He is a candid writer, and plainly
and honestly6acknowledges i the wickedness
of the conduct of the Churchmen of_
seventeenth : century, in that' they Made
stringent requirements for the purpose of
driving out the Puritan' clergy. At the
Autumnal, meeting ofithe Congregational
Union,, held in October at Birmingham, a
resOlution was Tossed to the effect tha% the
24th of August, 1.862, was "deemed a most
suitable oppOrtunity for commemorating
,the= zeal, self , denikl, and , consiAtency of
those noble whom the Noncon-
fortuity of this, and every subsequent age
is, and will be, indebteik, and in magnify
ing the grace of - God in their high, 'con
scientious littaeliment , to :truth . and free
,dom.". The Union also recommended that
dile, preparation sheuld be made .for the
Observance if the day; that sermons shall
he preached in ' all the places of worship ;
that efforts shauld4,be made in the 'parishes
formerly occupied by ejected ministers, .to
gather up • such particulars of their histo
ries as are, likely to he =instrumental in re
viving the spirit which'they displayed. It
was' also agreed to, 'that attempts - be made,
'by prompt - and -timely measures ) , to origi
nate new and additional chapels. in the
theof, large populations, to perpetuate
the memories of. men who, by their suffer
ings and zeal, secured to their' descendants
the liberties now-so happily enjoyed.
The Congregational Union also contem
plates, besides % the = raising of funds to
build fifty new chapels, to make a special
effort to. raise a large additional...sum to
that "Pastors' *tiring Fund " which was
originated 'two or three years ago. It is
also urged- that the 'standard of 'ministerial
income should be raised, if not-by a common
Sustentation Fund, at least by other united
action, so. as- to.seenre a decent.competence
to the humblest. pastor. I should..rejoice
with All Myliesrt if this last were indeed
accomplighed.- 'The condition of sorne3Dis
senting pastors: is. truly lamentable...

the Congregational Ilium, Calmness,
force, dignity, 'solemnity, and masculine
eloquence, distinguish thisspeech, It pros
duced profoundimpresvien. In reference
to the tyranny that led ,to the ejection, of
1662, he, referred,to,,the warning of Crom
well to disputing sects : " If you wrangle,
you' be throat to the wall. Charles
Stuart will come back, and youwilljallthe

the course of oppression by the eaclesias
tical rulers.ancl the-politicians of -the same
school, in power, I).r. Vaughan . said :
" What was the course they did taker.
They not only decided that all which had
been most objectionable to the Puritan
Ministers under Elizabeth and James,
Should' be retained,•-biat ainichit the man`y
little changes introduced; neatly everything
.was on the Anti-Puritan side. Nor was it
-enough that these things should be retain
ed,und presented• so .as .to be enforced.
Men were requested not simply to prouiise
that they -woUldf observe 'the things pre
scribed, hut 'to express - opinions •coneerii
ing' them. I suppose we all of us-have,mire
or less, to conform to•things whic we
should not ourselves have originated. I
apprehendt that Whim: a' thoughtful mail
connects himself 'with - any religious' body,
he-finds somethings there which he'-would
nothave placed ',there. takes.his
,ground from a regard, to the .great princi
ples which he finds there, and. which, he
really approves. And so the Church, of
his choice;is such, not4ectuie it is in all
respectsjust ,snell as heyouldbavo ; shaped,
but because it comes nearest to his, impres
sion `of what a 'New Testament ChUrcb
should be.
But the pinup. men of 1662 were not
allowed to make any. clistiarion, -of ; that
sort. They were required to ive,theit un
"feigned assent and Consent, to alland every
thing ,contained,in the,,Book "ore.COmmon
