been examining, which is fnoght with more than a doable intereet, bf reason of the fact tliat the testimony can and will be drawn Cram two Sources. Urs^ from eccleeiastical history, aa in the past, and, umndly, from the Holy Scriptures.

We shall now proceed to show two things: 1. That the apostolic charches, and those

which existed immediately after the apos-tolic age, Wire Baptut eAurchis.

2. That they were Musionary Baptiu

That the chorcheae daring the apostolic and primitire ages, were Baptist chorchee, the following facts will fully demonstrate.

1. They acknowledged no head but Chriat. "One 13 your Master, even ChriaL" See, also, Eph. L and CeL i. 13. "And he is the head of the body, the church."

2. Ecclesiastical gorernment was in the hands of the people—the members of the churches. They exerwsed their authority.

(I.) In the election of ministers. AcU L 15-2'-.. "And they gare forth their lots," etc

(2.) I n t h e exd^isi'yn ef unruly m€mbers

Matt xTiil 1-5-17. "And if he neglect to hear the church, let h'lm be uato thee as a heathen

man aiid a publican." 3. With aposto^c Christiana, the term

church generally signified a locil assembly of converted men and women, and not a great ecclesiastical hierarchy, compo^eil of a number of local bodies. For proof of this, let the reader examine the apostolic ad-dresses to the churches; aa that to the church at Corinth, at Ephesus, etc.

4. The apostles required faith and conrer sion aa necesaary prerequisites to baptism, and to church membership. Acts il 41 :— " Then they that gladly received his word were baptized" Again: P.'iilip said unto tha euQuch, If thou belierest with all thy heart thou mayeit(be bapfusd)"

5. For baptism, they practiced the immer-sion of the whole body in water. See the baptism of Christ, Matthew iiL The baptisms at Enon; John ii'i. Baptism of the eunuch. "And they both went down into the wat«r, both Philip and the eunuch and he baptized him." And, finally, with apostolic Christians, baptism symbol-ized a burial, and nothing but immersion could do this. See Romans ri. 4.

Need we any farther proof that apostolic Ctriitians were Baptists, and that the'r churches were Baptist churches ? The first announcement of the near approach of the Christian era was made by a Baptist—John, the harbinger of Christ

TssTiJiojrr raoM H I S T O S T .

The testimony of historians, aa Mosheim, Robinson, J ones and many others, corrobo-rates the testimony from the Bible, respect-

-ing the denominational chanwter of the churches of apootolic and primitive times. During the first and second centuries the Christian churches were composed of Bap-tists of the parest type

WITH THE* I30IKKS10S ALOSS WA3 BlPriSM. Mosheim says: " The sacrament of bap-

tism was administered in this century (the first), without the public assemblies, in places appointed and prepared for that pur-pose, and was performed by an immersion of the whole body in the baptismal fon t" (Church Hist, p. 23.) 4

Again, the same historian says, when speaking of b^ t i sm in the second century: " The persons that wen to be baptized, after they had repeated ths srssd, cssfcKsd and

over the others, nor the least right to enact laws for them." (Mosheim's Ch. Hist, p. 22)

How like the Baptists does the following sound: " During a great part of this (second) century, the Christian churches were inde-pendent with respect to each other, nor were they joined by association, confederacy, or any other bonds than those of charity. Each Christian assembly was a little State, governed by iU own laws, which were en-acted, or at least approved, by the society." (EccL HUt, Mosheim, p. 40.) E P I S C O P I L B U H 0 P 3 W E R E U S K S O I R S I S T H E F I R S T

AGC3. Says the learned Mosheim; " Let none,

however, confound the bishops of this prim-itive and golden period of the church with those of whom we read in the following ages; for though they were tK)th distingu'ished by the same name, yet they differed in many respects. A bishop, during the first and second centuries, was a person who had the care of one Christian assembly, which at that time was, generally speaking, small enough to be conuined in a private house. In this assembly he acted, not so much with the authority of a master, as with the zeal and diligence of a faithful servant.

" Nothing is more evident than the per-fect equality that reigned among the primi-tive churches.

'•The people were undoubtedly first in authority; for the apostles showed, by their own examples, that nothing of moment was to be carried on or determined without the consent of the assembly. It wis, therefore, the assembly of the people which chose rulers aad teachers, or received them by a free and authoiitative consent when recom-mended by others The same people re -jected or confiimed, by their suffrages, the laws that were proposed by their rulers to the assembly; excommunicated profligate and unworthy members of the church ; re-btsred the penitent to their forfeited privi-leges, passed judgment upon the diflfejent subjects of controversy and dissension, that arose in their community: examined and decided the disputes which happened be-tween the elders and deacons and, in a word, exercised all that authority which be-longs to such as are invested with sovereign power." (Mosheim's Ch. Hist, pp. 2!, 22.)

The Episcopal form of church law was unknown among Christians of the earliest times. They never dreamed of such a thirg as the Papal hierarchy, nor of the more lim-ited religious hierarchies, aa the different grades of episcopacy among Protestants, in which the people have bat little or no au-thority in the affairs of the churches.

clearer gospel Ught, that floliath of selfish-ness began to ^ e l d and to retire into the " deep back ground," was the opportone sea son for unfurling the banner of Jesus to every breese, on every hill, in v f ^ r j TaUey, in every town and Yillage, to all the people. Hnrorists have occupied many of the cen-ters of influence. When the withering influ-ence of the Antimission spirit had rendered the very name of Baptists, in the minds of many people, odious, the way was opened wide for Pedoes and Campbellites. Very many, who were Baptistic in their feelings, for want of proper instruction by Bkptists, have been led oS by the disciples of CkiBp-bell Not a few, demanding immersioii at the bands of Pedoes,' have gone into their societies. While »e, as Baptists, are n»ch fewer in number, in proportion to the popa latieo of tha country, than our brethren in East or West Tennessee, I think the per cent, of immersionists to the population is, perhaps, as great as in any territory of the saate extent ?he desUtution around andonr inability to supply it are coase-quences that find their adequate cause in the Antimission spirit, that, as a nightmMe, smothered our benevolent enterprises. I t haa not been a want of Baptistic sentiment that .has kept us so much in the rear. It has been and—though now less—still is the An timission—I was about to say—croaker.

How much of that Anti feeling yet remains among the members of Missionary churches ? I:et those answer who do nothing, and sacri-fice nothing for the cause of Chrsst How many Antimission preachers are titere among us ? Let those answer who never, like Paul, ^ h COTgregations to abound ia the grace of Unevolence. Paul never would have turned the cold shoulder to an agent or missionary sohciUng help for the needy.

" Writers of all denominations aSrm that the ceremonies daring the earliest times were baptism of adults by immersion, and the Lord's supper." (EccL Bea., p. 50 ) THKT BAPnziD SOSt BUT BKUIVKIB 15 CHtlST.

" In the earliest limes of the church, all who professed firmly to beliere that Jeaus WM the only Redeemer of the world, and who, in consequence of this profession, promised to live in a manner confbrmable to the parity of hii holy rellgioB, were im-mediately received among the disciples of Christ This was'all the "preparation for baptism then requirdd."

"Thra baptism was administered to such only as had given satisfactorr proofs of pioos dispositions and upiight inteations." (Mos heim's Ch. Hist, p. 25 )

THXT MAnrrAGns cntracH nrospisBKycT. Mr. Robinson says that "Writers of all

denominations affirm, aad a strict adherence to truth compels them to do so, that the churches of the earliest times were small independent societies, who assembled at leMtoncea week on the first day, each in ita own place to worshio God." (EccL Reaearches, p. 50.)

" The ehnrches, in those eariy times, were entirely .independent, none of them being sshject to any f o r ^ jwiwiiotion; but eMh goremed by its own rulerB and its own laws, for, though the d r a r ^ e s feaaded by the apostles had this particatar deference shown to them, that they were eonsnlted in difS-colt and doobtfol cases, yet they had no juridical aQthority, no sort of supremaey


Were it necessary we-might introduce much testimony, showing that the early churches were careful as to the qualifications of these admitted to the privileges of the Lord's supper. As with the BaptisU of the present day, with them none were admitted to membership unless they gave evidence of "pious dispositions. ' And, then, not until they had been bspt'zed

Df. Mosheim says : " Those who were in a penitential sUte and these who had not re-ceived the sacrament ef baptism, wers not admitted to this holy supper." (Hist, p. 70.)

With the brief array of the foregoing facts, surely none will doubt that the Christian churches of the first ages were Baptist churches. But, if this fact shouM not be admitted, surely .-dl will admit that the Bap-tists of the nineteenth century mire nearly resemble the primitive Christians than any denomination of Christians that now exista

At leart, so far as truth is concerned, when we examine into their principles and prac-tices, such as exclusive immersion for bap-tism, a converted church membership, re-stricted communion, and church independ-ence, we Cfn form no other opinion than that they were BaptisU, a a i that, too, of the purest type.

We have now found a Christian people in every ago who professed and maintained the principles of a pure Christianity—communi-ties that were either acknowledged to be B-iptists, or have been shown to be such; and all of whom we have shown to be cf an evangelical spirit, and who engaged to p ra mote the glory of God in tke spread of Divine troth; a n ^ therefore, were miasionarieB, ex-cept the Baptists of the first and second cent-ones.

If I am not misinformed, they offer OS.what may be considered equal to fllG.OCO, to JocaU our Unireisity among them—and I am of the opinion that no more eligible situation can be found in the State As one of the committee of nine, I am for-bidden by delicacy Md propriety to express

preference for any place. But as in the competition between Jackson and Clarka-ville for the Presbyterian institution, the action of the locating Board was true to the law of giaritatioD, and the larger body drew tbe prise, so I judge it will be in the gener-ous riralry which I hope to see for the pos session of our Baptist school; the largest snm of money, social, topographical and econom ical adrantages considered, will be sore to attract to itself this nucleus of a rising sun

fourth Sabbath of two weeks' continu^ce, at nights, which was a time of great to the litUe church The meeting began uider very unfavorable circ*mstances; but as^osu-al, man's extremity seem."? to be God's o ^ r tunity. The Lord was present to bless.iand did abundanUy bless, our labor?, and w^are very much encouraged During the m - ^ n g we had sixteen accessions to the chtirch. Among the number baptised, three had pre viously belonged to the Catholics, and others of the same faith seem to be much afft^i^d Dark clouds have been hanging over ^ i s litde church ever since iU organiaatio^ in July last; but, thanks be to God, lighl is dawning, and we hops a brighter day ^ in the future.

AFEW years before the late war there Was an unusually wet spring, in ccinsequ^ce

of which a large portion of country was:in-undated by the waters. This was so, pariie-larly, along the banss of Elk river in Mi<fdle Tennessee. There was a man in Lin»ln county named Cheatham, who had a f%m lying along the stream, which the fast ri^g waters were rapidly covering l ie watiAed with eagerness the rising dood until he saw it would soon sweep away his fencing. Sis passions became uncontroUable. He rusfed out to the edge of the swollen stream and %e-gan to swear furiously. He then waded a stert distance into the water and began to b|ap imprecations on himself; compar&g him to some old drunken sot in the cc|o-munity, saying " he had put it to ndniftg, had gone to a grocery, got drunk, and f o i ^ t to stop i t " WhUe going on with these hs»r-rid oaths, he fell down in the water, having received a paralyUc stroke, from whichae nerer recovered In a common way G o | is slow to punish sin; but some crimes artejo heinous in their nature that he manif^iU his displeasare by quick and sore p u n i ^ -

T QE school of New TeaUment Interpre-tation ia cared for by an acorate logician,

a kind hearted gentleman of the very sharp-est inught, and extraordinary critical ability; ^ man who has Jesus in his heart, and so a great preacher. Such a school could not be In better hands. With the utmswt reverence for the blessed Sivior, Dr. John A. Broadus seeks with pains Uking diligence to ascertain, by the most accurate methods, what 13 the correct reading of the original text, and then what ita best Englith equiva-lent. "Search the Scriptures" is no idle injuuction to him His work, his care, the vdue he clearly places on the words of the New Testament inspire the students of this school with the desire to study wiih the utmost care that word which is "able to make them wise unto salvation." Dr. E ' s reputation as a scholar, a writer and preacher, needs no indorsem*nt of mine, but it will surely be gratifying for the brethren to know what he is in the lecture room. Often do we hear the brethren say: " I could easily imagine I had myself been to Jacob's well (or Bethlehem, or some other place), Dt. B."8 description was so vivid" Certainly his power of picturing scenes in simjble, livicg language is wonderful And this is a strong framework, a splendid background ou which to place the events of New Testa meat history. I have always felt that to be with such a live preacher daily for months is itself worth a residence as a student at the Seminary. It is just as he himself said at the Jefferson Convention: '' An older preacher helping on tbe younger ones.' His exposi tions of Scripture arc thoroughly appropriate to the class. Remember' that in the Xew T^tament English are men of all capacities and every degree of preparedness. Some can little more than read and write cor-rectly, others are pretty good Ecbolars— college graduates. Some will probably take the full diploma of the Seminary, others will not pass one examination. What do they need, then, seeing there is such a di versity of aim and power among them ? It is easier to imagine the necessity than to supply it; hence they need a wonderfully alive prtdcher to select such points as are best suited to the class, aud to elucidate them so that a child could understand. I have never heard of a student who could not understand Dr. B., or who failed to enjoy his course in this department It is certain that the School is as near perfect as its organization and design will admit Every student would be glad, were it possible, to spend at least two years in i t

Augustus bossted that he found Rome brick, una lefi it m-ixLle So he encouraged others to build. Herod imi tated him, and so did others. The slave trade was by no means unimportant Delos was a great slave depot, they were sent thence thrcugb all the world. Rome bought Thrician pe.<i£anu to till the ground, but got; elsewhere learned slaves—sometimes edu cated Greeks. Daring tbis period travel was safe The veseels and roads built for military transportation were now used by the youth of the land for traveliisg purposes. Tbe spirit which led them before to war, now spent itself in adventurous travel i Tliere were many great cities in Augustus' day. Among them Tardus, of Cilicia, was "no mean city,' tu t cf great influence Strabo says it was a second .Vthens. Heie were teachers in all departments of learning. In the west (Marseilles) Massalia was noted for its school?. It was patronized by Rome iUelf. The populaiion of Rome was about oOu.OC'O to l.i 'X'.w.'.

As to Rome itself, we should note that ii h.\d immensj wealth, but mostly confiaed te a few persons, the great patrician families—the descendants of the consuls and pro-consuls, rulers of tbe pro vinces, who had sbun.iant opportunity of enriching themselves. According to Lord (Old Reman World, p. 4"o), there were persons whose income was $ j annu-

The entertainments ccst fortunes. t dishes of peaco*cks' tongues. Literally their god was their .belly, the highest par sonages indulging in shameless gluttony. It is related of C. ^uiius C»=ar aadothirs , that at a banquet they ate as much as they could and tlien ail went out. vomited up their food, rested and drank wine to restore their appetites, and returned again to the table. Divorce was common, as also conjugal infi delity. Faiderasty was openly practiced.

doings, the history and geography o! cities, towns and districts, and peoples which throw light on the events of the Ume must be gone over carefully

The Etadeats are required to be prepared for daily recitations, which are in harmony with all of Dr. B.'s work, aad are real tests of study.

To the illustration of the New Testament Dr. B. brings an extensive and accurate acquaintance with cotemporiry history— the Grecian, Persian and Roman being especially important The Doctor is a Ger-man scholar, an-l keeps up with the latest results of the really wonderful works o ' such men as Meyer, Lange, etc. O: course he does not follow any expositor without tae beat critical reasons.

I give a specimen of his csndensaticn of historical information, to throw light on the gospel work:

General reviaa of :.le Jtotian t:orld at ih^ opening of the Kew Tfstament A. U. C., 74 S Twenty 5ve years aflsr the battle of Actium Angrzstus Caasar was the absolute irrespon Bible mler of the world. H e was elected to all the important Roman offices for li'e, declared exempt from aU laws, was senator, pro-consul, tribune of the people, pontifex maximus, and life dictator. Every /JTTTl of a republic, elections, etc., was carried out, yet Angnstuj was absoluta ruler. This was partly in consequence of the universal desire ibr peace which pervaded t t e world, Ke had all the Mediterranean coast, popaUtlon in the year 1,1C>0,000.000;. European Spain, GanJ, Italy, Greece and Macedonia, 40,OM,-00«:i; Asia Minor, 25,000,000. The Roman army was 350,000. There were legions on the Rhine, Danube, Euphrates, two each, of iO OOO men, in Spain and Egypt, and a navy of 40,000 or 50.600 men on the Danube, Black Sea and the Rhine. Tiiere 'were re markable rosuis built in_ail the Roman provinces. The m Ht famous was the Appian

Piinishmoiit the Vindication of God's Char actor. ^

I HE truth of ."ill others which men are! prone to avoid, is that which exposes i

the hideousness of sin. the vileness of the sin- I ner. Yet without correct views of the " sin- j fulness of sin," men will not feel very deeply their personal need of the Savior. This truth, th t t God ui'i punish the sinner, lies

And God will exclude sinner? f-om his presence so long as he is able; so long as his character is the same, and that is eter-nally.

(c) Si-i is rcldlion ajainit God. Being ! utterly against him and his government, fcin I seeks no less than the very dethionemcnt • of the Sovereign of the universe. What • madness; what appalling blindness' Vice ! naturally seeks to drive good men out ol ! power, to ruin their iniiaencs. So our sin I fulness would drive God, a pure, Loly Go-i,

from the administration of this government , How. then, can God vindicate his own char acter as an infinitely holy Being, aa omnit-o tent Sovereign, ju i t and wise, except by the punishment of the sinner? H's nature dem;.nd3 this vindication; the nsture aad results cf sin demand this displ.iy of sis Mouaess, henc3 the punishment o." the sin ner is just as necessary, sure and ss eternal as the very existence of God himself.

To the sinner th'is truth is all importasi. It s'lould be presented lovingly, tympa th;::ingly, prayerfully, from our pr-lpits. It Is the sinner himself, not sin in tbe abstract wh ch is to be punished, and he should be

Letter from Big Bend. Brothek Gsives;—The Lord is trying the

faith of his people here on Bayoa des Glaises. For five weeks their lands have been izun-dated from the breaks in the levee of tbe ilississippi about Lake ProviieSca The fences in miny places are washed away, and the crops completely destroyed They si'em to recogn-zj the hand of God in this calam-ity, snd knowing that he doeth all things well, that he means it unto good, and that good to them will grow out of it, they are not depressed in spirit, but exhibit a spirit of resignation and humble submission to the will of God

We have Divine service every Sabb ah , and a goodly number attend. O.Jr mode of trnveling is in small ilatboats and skiffs that will carry from six to eight persons, in which are often seen whole families, the father using the oa-s. The people tnanifest a gr-jater interest, and seem to enjoy religion more than they did before they were so oppressed. This calamity seem^ to draw them nearer the Lord,

The Lord has chastened them torely, and smarting under the pun , they have not gone away, ba t like a loving, trusting child, when the chastening rod of the father falls upon it, they draw affectionately and with child-like submission closer to him. A^ the brood of young chickens, when threatened with any evil, gather themselves under tha winga of their natural protector, so this people re-duced to want, and knowing noi. how they will be supplied with the necessaries of life during the year, have taken shelter under tbe wings of God's loving kindness, believing that, as he feeds the fowls of tae air, and tliat, as he will not so much as soffer a »par-rcw to fall unnoticed to the ground, he will will also provide for them. What a blefting it is to know in whom we trust-; to know that he caretb for us, and that hu will sup-p l j all our needa a . T i e k t .

the grace of God for me to record somewhat of the Lord's dealings with my eouL . . My conrersion was very clear and unmistakable. . . I knew that I was born again; that I was a child of God and an heir of a ^orious in-heritance, and nerer from that time hare I doubted this. Never have I had a moment's fear about my acceptance with him or my present possession of eternal life. . . I saw how complete was my judicial standing in Christ and my judicial completeness before God in him. . . But notwithstanding aU this my heart waa Ul at ease. . . At the end of eight years of my Christian life I was forced to make the sorrowful confession that I had not even as much power oyer ain as when I was first converted . . I could not but see that although I was not under the law but under grace, still sin bad more or less dominion over me. . , Often I said to my-self that if this was aU the gospel of Christ had for me it was a bitteriy disappoinUng thing: for though I never doubted the fact of my being a child of God, justified and forgiven as a possessor of eternal life and an heir of a heavenly inheritance, still when my heart condemned me—and this was almost continuaUy—I could not have confidence toward God, and waa not happy. I began to long after h<rfinesa. I began to groan under the bondage to sin in which I was still held. My whole heart panted after entire conformity to t t e wUl of God and unhindered communion with him. But to thoroughly convinced was I that co efforts, or resolutions, or prayers of my ew a would be of any avail, and so ignorant was I of any other way, that I was almost ready to give up in despair. In this time of sore need God threw inte my company some whose experience seemed to be very different from mine. They declared that they had discover-ed a way of holiness, walking in which they met neither failure nor defeat. . . I a.iked them their secret, ami they replied: ' It is simply in ceasing from all sfforts and trust ing Jesus.' . . Like a revelation the glorious posaibUities of a life su?h as this dashed upon me; but the idea was too new and wonderful for me to grasp. I had never thought of Christ as being such a Savior as I now heard him described to be. . . T had learned how to trust him for the forgiveness of my ains, but I had always trusted myself to conquer them. . . I lay awake whole nights to wres-tle in prayer that God would grant me the blessing he had granted these Christian brothers. . I could not believe; I did not trust; and all else were worse than uselesa But for hope, not altogether uselsss. . . The last barrier of unbelief was broken down Jesus revealed himself to me as worthy of my utmost confidence, that I could not help trusUng him. . . I believe the truth that he was my pracUcal aanctification ai weU as my justification. . . Jesus became my present Sirior, and my soul found rest at last—such a rest that ao words can describe i t . . The secret of holineaa was revealed to me Thus that flesh which I had diacorered to be so utterly corrupt and incapable of im provement, I now found could be aban doced. I / e a d : ' Ye are not in the fl-sh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you.' By faith I knew that the Spirit of God did dwell in me, and therefore by faith I could triumphanUy cry, ' I have crucified the flesh with the affecUons and lusta. I am dead tevertheleas, and live; yet not I, but Christ lireth in m&' And accord-ing to my faith I found it waa done unto ma. I c reckoning myaelf dead, I found that I was pracUcaUy dead unto sin. Ia putting off the old man by faith and putting on the new man, I found that the one waa actually put ofif and the other was actually put on. I waa enabled, in short, to walk in the Spirit, and therefore not to fulfill the lusU of the flesh. I entered into the reat of faith— that ' keeping of Sabbatha' which remaineth for the people of God, and there I atOl abide."

In my judgment the abore is a novel Christian experienca I may reriew some points in i t in the fature. But as it respecU 30 vital a queafron, I ahall be glad to see the riawa of the brethren generally on this rab-jecL May it not be that many of the con-rerta of this " higher life " order are taught to b ^ e r e th«» ains are pardoned before they enter into the reat of faith ? j d s.

that which ia receired in aatiabction for aa offense or injury and this seems to me to be the sense in which the word is mostgenersl ly used in the Scriptures.

He seems to confound atonement with redemption. Are they not different in their object, deaign w d nature? It is GDD, not man, that receivea the atonement; but man receives reconciliation through the suffer-ing! and death of Christ Paul says, « when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of bis Son," etc.

Atonement ia offered to God aa its object, and made to satisfy his JusUce; to satisfy his noUted law so that he could be just and thejustifier of all who would become recon-ciled to him through faith in Christ: hence Paul says, "God was in Christ, reconriling the world unto himself," not atoning for them.

KedempUon is purchased or procured for ^ by the atonement, and is a benefit con-ferred on man; it is the deliverance of men from sin, and thU is still going on, and will continue until the end of time.

Paul says " we are bought with a price, ' and I view the atonement as the price paid for the purchase of all true believers, and that the price is fully paid; for by one oflfer-mg he hath perfected forever them that are sanctified. (Heb. ^ 1 4 ) By the blood of the covenant, I have sent forth thy prison era out of the pit, etc. (Zech. i s 11 )

I f a member of our church endeavors to sow dissensions in Eny of our societies by in-weighing against either oar doctrines or dis-cipline, such person, so offending, sb.HlI be hrst reprorei by the senior minUter or preacher of hia circuit, and if he persists in each pernicious practice! he shall be ex pelled from the church."

Now, mark you, the Disc-pline, as quoted above says that they will exclude a member for holding, either pubUcly or privately, doc trines contrary to their Articlef. of BeUaion. That they will expel such offenders, may be seen by reference to the rise of the Method-ist Protestant i^hurch, as given in Williams-History of that denomination.

John Boyd, a Baptist minister, was m conversation with Dr. Wagner, a Methodist preacher. After talking awhile upon the teachings and practice of their denominations, Boyd told Wagner that his church sprang from Roman Catholicum Wagner got mad and told Boyd he waa a liar two or three times. Boyd evaded fur ther conversation with h im But not con tent with this, after a few minutes Wagner walked up to Boyd; aaya he, " you caUed me a Roman Catholic," and apat in Boyd'a face. The fieshly pride could no longer withstand • Boyd hit him, when the bystanders inter-fered and prerented further collision.

'Tis as some pale tinx Upon the twilight wave, a broken glimpse Of something beautiful and dearly Iove.l In far-gone yesrs, a dim and tender dream, That, like a faint how oa a darkened sky, Lies on my clouded brain. But, oh! thy voice, Its tones can never perish in my soul It visits me amid the strife of men, In the dark city's solitude. It comes, Amid the silence of the midnight hour. Upon my listening spirit like h strain Of fairy music o er the sea. And oft When at the evenUda, amil a hash Deep as ihe awful stillness of a dream, I stray all lonely through the leafless wools, And gaze upon the moon that £e»mj to mourn Her lonely lot in heaven, or on the trees. That look like frowning Titans in the dim And donbtfal light, that uaforgotten voice Swells on my ear like the low uournful tone Imprisoned in the ssii-shell, or the sound, The melancholy soun J, of dying gales Panting upon the far off tree-tops.

OUR appoinhnea4 at thia placa for 11 o'clock on Fridaijr we were compelled to

Sid. Wm. H. Haliy, firom Arkabr^tla, was preaent with his bujCTi » was Bro. Brown, to take us the ne4t day to their church. Thia waa an a b u a d A t provision for travel infe bat as we hadishared Bra B.'s hospi-tality three years Afore, we accepted Bro. R ' a conveyance, a i d reached hia hospitable roof before noon t f Saturday, and took a hed. We passed a f i c k day and night, and phyaieally enfeeblei, met a large congrega-t e at Arkabutla, ^hich we addressed three yean ago at the .4aociation. That was a great day, a great |oncre^«t:on, and great WBB tttealtentic^'. ^xdhbi-r:!! the aubscrtp-t?mm by the bietJren of the chnrdi aind deleptea unto the Southern Baptist Publi-eaUon Society.

long and valued friend, Dr. Mabry, and j P^®^^^ remained in bed under medical t reatment ' until the next day afternoon, when Bra Suggs' buggy came in from Tjro, Eftcen miles distant I t required all our strength to make this trip , but an hour after sunset we arrived at Bra Montgomery's and rested with him for the night He has been for three years pastor of this church, and is well beloved, and is increasing his influence yearly in this section. The next day opened with a rain, which continued until 12 o clock, and we had given up the idea of preaching, but soon people commenced gathering, and Ero. M. proposed that we go down and see them. The result waa thai by 1 o clock we were required to talk awhile, anyway. We commenced, and the longer we talked the mere they came in, until cetween 2 and J o clock we had a respectable congregation-some from twenty m'Jes—and to we com-menced preaching, and by 4 o clock had made a respectable sermon, as to UifC.'i at least Four came forw.vd and subscribed stock, viz : W m Hynes, $.50; R Suggs, 50, J. C. W. Fort, 50; J. B. Wright, 50. Here again we met no conveyance from Hickory Grove, where we had an appointment on the morrow. What was to be done? Bro.

Icracl at Rcau m H E R E remaineth a rest for the people 1. of God." This is as true of Israel in

the flesh as of Israel in the spirit "The wife of the Lamb" "God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew," for " they are beloved for the Father's sake." " In my wrath 1 smote thee, but in my fav »r have I had mercy on thee. Therefore thy gates shall be open continually; they shall not be shut day nor night; th|.,t men may b r j i g unto thee the forces of the Gentiles, and that their kings loay be brought" (Isa Ix 10. 11 )

After long sges of tribulation and woe, Israel shall experience a national resurrec-tion, and be restored to their own land "Beha'd, 0 my people, 1 will open your craves, and cause you to coaie up out of your graves, and bring you into this land of Israel" (Eze. xxxvL 12)

" Thy sun shall no more go down, neither shall thy moon withdraw iUelf; for the Lord shaU be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy moUl-ning shall be ended " (Ua •x. 20.)

After iHii national restoration, under the e-pecial manifestation of the Messiah and the marvelous outpouring of the Holy Spirit, will follow the conversion of Israel. '• It is written, there shall come out of Zion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob, so all Israel shall be saved." (Rom. xL 26)

Israel, reesUblished nationally in their OWE land and loyally obedient to their long rfjected Messiah, and politically submissive to a theocratic government, will become the leading nation of the world. Israel is God b first born national son, aad as such, shall, in the age to come, have the national pre emi-nence, "for the nation and kingdcm that will not serve thee shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted." (Isa l i 12 )

Now at rest, and at peace with all the world, poliiically and morally elevated, with a marked spiritual development. Israel will become a great blessing to all nationi.

As it is, scattered, homeless, despised, op down trodden Israel is now the

benefactor of the world—has conferred upon the Gentiles priceless riches. Greece taught the world to appreciate beauty, the wealth of art; and Rome bequeathed to modern nations the eternal ideas of law and govern-ment, but Israel bas given to mankind a spiritual religion. '-Salvation, ' the greatest of all boons, " ia of the Je vs. " The oracles of God, truths of infinite import, the price-less volume of the holy word, is given to all nations by the hands of Israel The peerless laws of Motes, the majestic utterances of the prophets, the sublimer discourses of apostles, the transcendent sayings of Jesus of Nazareth, are the superb gifU of Israel to all mankind. But these gifu, for the most part, are bestowed upon the world during the period of Israel s weakness, oppression and decadence. What may we expect when Israel's sorrows are ended and the sun of her glory is shining full orbed, never again to set in darkness ? Paul referring to this says ; • Now if the fall of them be the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of thfe lientiles, haw much more their fullness ? If the cisting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be b»U life from the dead 7 (Kom xi. 1-', 15 ) The idea is, that the benefactions of Israel in the Rges to

to us, but God alwajs has men and means at hand when he has work to do. He wn'. doubtlesa call into use the mighty agenU now in use—steam and electricity—with Other forcsa yet undiscovered, but above win he aend forth liia own omnipotent Spirit, to quicken the nations as never before. The whole earth shall be filled with the glory of the Lord; while the name of Jeaoa, the King of Israel, "shall be continued aa long as the sun; and men shall be blessed in him; and all nations shall call him blessed." (Pa Ixxil 17 )

" Ue mast reign till he hath put ail ene-mies under his feet; a r d when all things shall be subdued unto him then shall the Son himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all." ( l i t Cor. xv. 25, 2S )

Redemption is now complete; the seed of the woman has braised the serpent's head ; evil is extirpated; the good is triumphant ; earthly economies are closed forever, and this earth, regenerated, becomes the eternal abode of the righteoua

Such is the destiny of Israel as laid down in God's holy word. It ia a wonderful reve-lation of God s unchangeable covenant, the »efacity or his promises, the wide extension of h s providence, ind the iiresistible might of his purpose. No one can study this des-tiny without being deeply impressed with the thoughts that God rules among the nations, and that his hand weaves the web of all human history.

"As to the Sunday-School Board in par-ticular, there are many of us who are unwill ing for any Northern. Association, if we can h d p it, to be ' purveyors of theolcgy for our children.' The orthodoxy of that latitude, we fear, ia gradually becoming lest articulate on the doctrines of grace and of inspiration than of old.

" The article on the Evangelictl Alliance declares that, ae a result of that gathering, it is clear that " the high church preiacgofthe Episcopal churches, aad the cloic comm^./iion-ism of the Baptist church, must ba givea up, or these sects m u ' t stand outside " These features he declares " incompMible with right manifestation of the unity ol Protest-antism. We recognize the m-nisiry and ministerial acts of other churches, t. <- , Infant baptism e;c "jWhen e s ^ t disrupU the bond of brotherhood st the very table of the Lard, the breach is too central and viul to allow of any consistent appearance of one-ness, etc , etc. That the Evangelical .Alli-ance has proclaimed sentiments like these, is certainly not true; but we are inclined to thmk t h a t logically, the position of the writer is correct, and that evenU will Ehow its correctness. Waiving ^ i s , d.d it - , • „ „ . , jpiring the Past Century never occur to him to ask whether High ^ = Church Prelacy " and " close communion-ism,' or rather, our views of baptism, are Scriptural or not ? whether men can give up solemn beliefs for the sake oi manifesting unity ? and whether return to the primitive immersion of believers would not do more for visible unity than a thousand Evangel-ical Alliances'/ It is very c-irtain that neither the Baptists Vor the Episcopalians have any notion of abandoning the ground.

Breth. Suggs and Montgomery provided a team and driver, and we reached the Grove and ftjund a full house; it was their regular conference Saturday. We preached and presented the claima of the Society, and when we should have received fiiteen or twenty shares, we obtained three, and we are not cog fi lent that either was a member of this, sae of the largest and strongest churches in Cold water Association! We found that but one or two of the whole charch were readers of The Baptist. They knew nothing about the Society, and there-fore cared nothing. Bra Lipeey, after our effort, rose and said that he could not be satisfied with .this. In 1S70 nearly every family of this church took and read Tuk Baftist, and that it was then an active, pros-perous ckurek, and it would^ be again if the membera wonld again read the paper. He succeeded in influencing quite a number to read it one year, and then, if they will come to the r a i l K ^ for oa, we will visit them once msre and take fifteen or twenty aharcs. Subscribers: R B. McLaughlin, f jO, W. C, Lanpton, 50; B. R. Chambliss, 5<.>.

We reached Dr. Staton's after sunset, and it was because we l a d ascertained that \re could not reach Sardis by any train to preach on Sabbath, after returning from Hickory Grove, and that the appointment was called in through the Sirdis paper. We assure our brethren in and around Sardls that should we ever make another appointmeot there, we will be certain to meet it if alive.

The congregation at Senatobia on the Sabbath was truly gratifying. We were pleaburably surpriwd at the size aad finish of the new house that the little band has so long labored and sacrificed to build for Chriat I t is a devoted band, fifty-eev^a strong. They feel that Bra Lipsey, who is their pastor, did commit a mistake i s re-moving to Coldwater. Senatobia is now the county site of the new county of Tate, aad

j is destined to become a place of considerable sise, and is a point of importance to our cause and should be diligently cultivated. We received the Soilowing names: .T.' 3L Deam $50; Mrs. M. F. Lipsey, 50; J . Mason, SOTj.W . Echols, 50; B. C. EnUedge, 50; S. M. co*cke, 50; D. G. Young, 50; Dr. J . R. Staton, 5a Total, $400. Thia wm the hard-est week's work of oar agency ao far, because

perishable treasure of mankind. Aad in ages to come Israel will be the inexhaustible reservoir of thought for the enrichment of all nations. " Many people shall say, come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the hcuse of the God of Jacob, aad he will teach us his ways, aad we will walk in his paths; for out of Zion shall go forth the law and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem." (Isa. ii. J ) Under the influence oi this teaching men will become morally elevated, they will be raised far above the ideas of brute force, which have so long governed mankind, and now standing upon a higher plane, "They will beat their swords into plow shares, and their spears into pruning, hooks; nation shall not lift ewnrd against nation, neither shall they learn war any more." (Isa. iL 4 )

Tais reign of pe.ace indicates a most sur-prisiag chaage in the instincts, principles and habits of mankind. The misunderstand ings, irritations, ambitions aad in tense sellish n e s a o f m e n a r e now the fruitful caases of war, because men are too low dowa ia moral development to control themselves by thoughts of justice aad moderatioa. Their reseatments are mostly animal, and they are only satisfied by the exercise of brute force to inflect pain, injury and destruction.

Knowing gneals above the roofl The main entraacea how cordially old Laadmark Baptists are are two—oa^ in the to^ er and the o:fcer in disliked by their loose brethren, we can ex-cuse Eld. Hooper. He says:

The open communionists might with equal justice Bay to their opponents: "Certain Baptist churches in the West, under the leadership of * * *, very consistently re-fuse all interchange of pulpits and prayer meetings with those whom they exclude from the Lord's table." To my mind, if there ever waa an a posttori argument legit-imate anil annihilating to an adversary, this is one. Drink, then, we say to our exclusive brethren, the bitter cup of the L a a l markers, or hand the sacred chalice of Jesus Christ to all whom he loves and dwells in.

The editor of the JReccrdar attempts to de-fend open communion in the pulpit, while he opposes it at the Lord's table, which no man can do, bat wisely concludes.


So may we not add Bro. Redd, of the Becorder, to the list ol Landmark editors— strict communionists throughout 7

THIS body met in its tbirty-fifth annual ee^ ios Jane 4 fa, 1874, with the churcb

in Or4rd. The Convention was called to order A 10 o'<dock by the former President. P^T. M P- Lowrey, D D. One hour previous was sp^nt in prayer, led by B r Laadrum, of Mempiiia. Tats meeting was fervent and eaTtsesS—the very mold in which the incom-ing C<^vent:3n was cast. After lh«j usual prelimixary tusiness necessary to peraianent organi^tion, the body was pennsaently or-ganized by re-electing the same gentleman P r e s i d ^ t ; Esv. R. X. Uali, Kecording Sec retary; Est . A Hackett, Co; responding Secretary. The beginning of the session was coiam«^Bced with aa earnest invocation for Divine%uidanc« by the President.

The Convention met promptly &t this hoar, and, after religious service, proceeded to businau. Among tbe more important busi-ness of the evening were the appointing of important committees on Domestic and For-eign HiBsions, Sunday-Schools, Publications, 3£iniet4rial Education, Orphans' Home, Srathern Baptist Theological Seminary, and Mississippi College, and the reading and referrsog of the reports o! the Boards acd Agencies of the Convention. Some, may be all, of Jhese repcrU, show an enlarged work, SE wel^ as greater energy in the doing of it. I wouM like to see some of these reports in the SE«5iHsippi Department of THE BARNST, especi^ly the cnes on Foreign Missions and the Tlteological Seminary.

Thir day closed with the Convention Ser-mon ^ night by Rev. C. Smith, of Meridian. The ^ .r i t of the Convention was much cheerA by the arrival in our midst of Dr.

about $42,000. It ought t i have $100,000 Adjourned.

Convention met o'clock, the Presi-dent in the chair. The Committee oa Theological Department ia M esiasipp' Col-lege reported. This is'another im^rtant feature in the College. This being disposed of, the Committee on Orphans' Home report-ed. This shows that the Home needs a little more aid. A dwss meeting was held in i u interest Saturday night, resuiting in pledges and money to f950 Tne agent, Rsv. R N Hall, is a bard working, earnest man, whose heart is in this work.

Just before the Conventioa adjourned. Dr. Graves was invited to aidre s it on the Southern Baptist Publication Society. This little speech of about ten mitutes was forci-t ly delivered. The Society is succeeding well in job and book work, and in enlarging its endowiesat At the cocclusion of Dr. Graves' speech, the Convention a'djourned till Monday at 9 o'clock. It then went in a body to visit the State University.

"the publicans and harlots enter into tHe kingdom of God before the self righteous Pharisees and tkeptical Saddacees." And so the King does add daily to t o n e of the many provisc ?s ia the kingdom the save^i. The King tells us that the law and the (ropheu were until John, bat since that time tlie kingdom of God is proclaimed. Then it is erideni, both from John the "forerunner, and Christ the King, that the kingdom of God, or " kingdom of heaven " referred to under the new dispensation, means that religious "kingdom established"

R B. tVEITS N order to understand fully the Savior s meaning in his comparison between "Jobn

the Baptist and he that is least in the king-dom of heaven," it is necessary to know what is meant by " kingdom of heaven." Prophets had told of a coming King, and the Messiah, when he came, protoaaced himself that king. " Thou sayest it •—I am a King. "For this end I came into the world." To estab-lish "the kingdom of God," or the "k iag-dom of h e a v e n , a n d to present " the gospel of the kingdom." This, then, is the new covenant," and John was the "forerunner"' " to make ready a people prepared for the King," and so he preached Repent; for the kingdom of heaven is at hand," that is, the reign of heaven has come near. Jesus preached the same thing. ' Repent; for the kingdom of heaven b at hand." The apos-tles were sent through the land with instruc-lions to proclaim ths same glad tidings. "Repeat; for the kingdom of heaven is at haad." And all who accepted them under-stood that prophecy had been fulfilled; that tbe Messiah, the King, had come, and bad brooght to hand—esUblished, or about to do so—his long prophesied kingdom, which should oltimately fill the entire earth.

When John was imprisoned, the King proclaimed, " The t ime is fulfilled; the king-dom of God is at hand; it has come." The prophets have spoken the truth; " the king-dom of heaven" is estabUshed among us, and though i f ' su f f ere th violence from the days of John the Baptist until now [yes, these eighteen hundred years], and the vio-lent take it by force," yet men press into it

greater this, that thiry do in a higher decree rep' 'e-sent faith. We live in an age o ' facts estab-lished, and walk by faith and not by sight," having experienced a more complete t rans-migratio: from de.ith to '.ife. through a brighter, a more vivid reai 'zition of the new "jirth, by a larger putpoar icg o Spirit, even to tbe extent tiiai wt lo-s we uave p£.ssed from death unto life because we love the brethren, while the Old Testament faith did cot apply the pos-session of Divine t'nincs ba'. only hoped for them, and were believe in hope. " Thtse all died in faitb not having received the promise [ks we of the New Testament have], but having seen them StfsT oil, an i were persuided of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. "

Human n.-iture, it is true, is substantially the same in all ages, and God is the same in tbe past, the present imd f t e future, butjhis plan of saving souls under the prophetic dis-pensation, while it was then, as now, through the Spirit, yet the ;?ork of the .Spirit >Ta8 comparatively limited and secret then to what it is now. It comes now in Christ's

• glorified humanity, brought about by a "larger outpouring" of the Holy Ghost which was not poured out on humanity to that extent before humanity had been glori fied in Christ that it was afterward. Seeing, then, that the Old Testament saintt did not realize in an enlarged sense the meaning of the words "God is a Spirit, and requires spiritual, and not sacrificial worship," we can comprehend how he who is above all, "bom of woman," and "more than a prophet," is less than the least member of the " king-dom of heaven,' made a member by being "born of God • through "Christ's glorified humanity."

H Y Baptists agitate the minds of others on the subject of "baptism, doubtless

has caused many good perscns to wonder. I t is said, "Bapt isU do not baptize men to make them Christians, but because they are already such; but it isd.ilicait to see why they create so much strife about it, if this is true. '

There must be evidences of a change of heart (at least satisfac^cry to us as a people), before baptism cam be administered. We baptize men, tnerefore, to represent their death to the world, life to Christ and their hope ia the resurrectioa. (Ram. v i )

luiaersioa is that baptism, as M. Stuart, J. Cdlviii and others declare. Believing tliis sincerely and knowing that Carist has said, "If ye love me keep my commandments,'' how c in I do anything else but preach earnestly whit I believe?

Now there is a vast difference between us and other denominations. Nearly all teach infant baptism, and some baptismal reqener ation.

The Discipline, p 14;, in the formula for infant baptism, says: " We l-eseech thee of thine infinite mercies, that thou wilt look upon this child: wash him and sanctify him

Dilemma: How did the Christian church exist in the days of John the Baptist with-out a Christian ordinance, baptism ?

DILEMMA s o . H.

Methodists teach that a Christian can apos tatize and afterward be converted aud apos-iaiJzs aud cuuveried &g&:D, and 80 on. They teach that conversion is spiritual baptism. They quote " One Lord, one faith, one bap-tism." construing this to be tpiritoal baptism. Is the man, who is converted two or three times or spiritually baptized as often, not guilty of a redundancy of bapliims, or of more than " one baptism ? "

L. R.. Erasiss. Baldwyn, Misa, May, 1S74.

Co - E s:o - of a fault makes half amends for i t

ark of Christ's church,' etc. " In the ordinary way there is no other

means of entering into the church or into heaven. In all ages, the outward baptism is a means of the inward. ' (Doct Tracts of Wesley, p. 250) " A? to the grounds of it, if infants are guilty of original sin, then they are proper subjects of baptism; seeing in the ordinary way, they cannot be saved unless this be wa»hed away by baptism. It has been already proved that this original sin stain cleaves to every child of man." (Ibid, p 2 j l ) This smacks a good deal of Romanism. Many infants, according to this, are lost, if Baptists do get the credit of teaching that innocent children are lost

"What mean you by the word sacra-ment ? I mean an outward and visible sign of aa inward and spiiitHal grace, giren unto us, ordained by Christ himself; as a means whereby we receive the same and a pledge iO assure us thereof." (Dis., p. 319.)

The Voiceless. We count t i e broken lyres that rest

Where the sweet-wailing singers slumber; But o'er their silent aister's breast

Tlie wild aowers who will stoop to number? A few can touch the magic string,

And noisy fame is proud to win them ; Alas for those that neTer sing,

But die with all their music in them :

Say, grieTe n i t for the dead alone. Whose song has told their heart's sad story !

Weep for the Toiceless; who have known The cross but not the crown of glory r

Not where Leucadian breezes sweep O'er Sappho's memory-haunted billow,

Bat where the glistening night-dews weep On nameless sorrow s church-yard pillow.

Oh, hearts that break and gire no sign, SdTe whitening lips and fading tresses.

Till death paars out his cordial wins. Slow dropped from Misery's crushing presses

If singing breath or echoing chord TJ CTery hidden pang were given.

What endless melodies were poured, sad as earthy as sweet as heaven :

Sercnty Miles an Hour. Clear Creek is a miniature river that runs

through tho canon of the same i:ame. It descends upon a down grade of four hun-dred feet per mile, with here and there a fall over a rocky precipice fifteen or twenty feet in height. Large boulders forty or fifty feet in diameter, and weighing thousands of tons, imjiede iU dashing progress every twc or three hundred yards, while its curves

pith or biU of wool, that might happen to be near it. Uore than two thoosand years ago he did this, and it was a Tery wonderful thing at that time, because no one had ever done anything of the kind before. I t aeema to be a yery simple thing now, be-cause it has been done ao often and men hare learned to do ao many things more wonderful What only the wiaeat men could find out how to do at that time, may be done naw by almost any little boy or girl If you will put some small biU of cot-ton on a sheet of paper, then Uke a loog atick of aealing-wax and lub it with a dry silk or woolen cloth, you will find that the wax, held jus t a little aboTe the biU of cot-ton, will puU them all up to itself. A little thing like thin ia what astonished all the wise men in the world two thousand years ago.

Another very pretty little thing you can ejsily do in thia way:

Hang a long dry ailk ribbon over the firat finger of the left hand so that the two ends shall fall together beloif. Then put one branch of the ribbon between the thumb and first finger of the other hand, and the second branch between the firat and second bngen: press them UghUy and puU them quickly out from between the fingers. The ends of the ribbon will no longer fall together. Indeed they seem to be trying to get as far away from each other as possi-ble. Move them about as you will, they refuse to touch each other, and you cannot easily make them came together if you try. But while they show a strong aversion to each other, they will quickly Hy toward any third body which may be held near them. Put the hand between them, and both will tly toward it; or bring it above either one and lhat oae will rise a little meet i t

The force that lifts the bits of cotton to the sealing-wax, and that mores the branches of the ribbon iu these curious ways, is eleeirieity It ia brought into action by simply rubbing the wax or the ribbon.

Some of the little plants and trees are growing straight, and some are growing crooked. Some are growing up to be great, ugly weeds, choking and crowding out better plants, and others are growing up to hi beautiful and useful. How are^ou growing ? Are you a weed, growing up spiteful and ugly, keeping somebody else from growing up for gaod ? Or a-e you trying to grow toward Jesus and heaven, to be good a n i of usfl here and happy after you die ?

2 Sunlight, fresh air, and many other things are making the leaves and vegeUbles grow; and the same thing?, with others besides, m a t e our bodies grow. If we eat what agrees with us, take plenty of out-door exercise, go to bed at the right time, and also if we won't eat and do what hurts our health, we are apt to grow up with strong, h ^ t h y bodies. Oar minds, too, will grow, crooked if we let them, atraight if we make them Boys' and giria' minds as well as grown people's, must hare aomething to make them grow right, else they will grow like weeds, to be useless and to hurt othera S tudy makes the mind grow. What striking on the iron is to the tiacksmith's muscle, study is to the mind. Study is mind exer-cise The mind gets hungry, too, and we feed it by reading, by looking around us and lesrning with our eyes and ears. If we read good books and papers, and hunt up things that are useful to men, and find out about them, our minds will grow up like good com, or fine fruit trees. But if we read trash, our minds will grow trashy. You wouldn't feed a UtUe boy on fodder and straw, and expect him to grow stoat aad atrong, would you ? Well, then, don' t feed him, o r a UtUe girl either, on trashy stories, novels and nonsense, which are mental sawdust, and won't do the mind a bit More good than eating sawdust will the body. Carry yonr mind into good company,

feed it witfc God's word, abore all things, and with good reading.

Some of them are rery much like crab apple trees—it takes a heap of pmning, and hard work, and long, patient waiting to ever get a good, sweet apple from such a tree,- and our hearts all need lots of trimming and training. They are ao much like the fields where com aad cotton are planted. Weeds and grass come up with the com and must be chopped oat, rise the com won't grow. Well, the w e e ^ must be got out <rf our hearu, too if w* want to grow up for heaven. J3in must be got out, the great, ugly thisUe that grows in eT«y one of oor hearts, else we will never be fit for hearen.

Who will do this f « Bs ? Hare yoa eyer ^ to kill the M O T weeds in the gar-den? It'a hard work, ain't i t? Ah, but i t ' . W o - w o r k ti» KB sin ia oar hearts, to stop Mg»T thougW^ to keep from sayiag bad

with a stick when the fastenings gave way, ami the boat went drifting toward the rap-idiy-runniog current. The little boys soon discovered their danger, but were piwerless to avert it, they clutched hold of the sides of the boat and with palid countenances await:d their doom. Soon the beat was caught by the current and began descend ing at a fearful rate. ("a she wert ; ihe boj-8 hats blew off and their hair stood straight up Over Black Hawk rapids they went like an arrow, clearing a distance of sixty feet at a single dash. Lighting again on the torrent surface the boat seemed to have gained a new impetus, and shot by the bculdera and around the rocky points with the celerity of a sunbeam. At a distance of about six miles below the starting point conductor Gibbons, who was standing on the rear platform of the down Clear Creek train, saw the boat coming, and immediately stopped the train All hands repaired to the water s edge, and did everything in their pjwer to arrest the dying boat, but past them she went like a bullet from a rifle, s-nd was out of sight in a moment The conductor then ordered the engineer to put on a full head of steam and follow as rapid-ly as possible, which he did, constanUy sounding the alarm of danger. He did not

gat anotlier glimpse of the boat, but the alarm brought the employes at Beaver Creek Station to the lookout, and quickly making a slip noose, sought to throw it over the bow of the boat as she came under the bridge. This they succeeded in doing, but could no more hold it than they could hare held a thunderbolt, and over Beaver Creek falU she went with the speed of the light-ning. The falls are thirty feet high, and at the foot are a number of large boulders, but

" A t that time I was only a foolish yourg man, and so in the following night I dug in the ground sn the spot, and to my great mortification found not a single dollar In the morning the neighbor saw where 1 had been digging, and laughed hsartily at my simplicity.

" ' I see,' said he, ' that you did not under s t a n d e e . I will send you a young pear tree; set tha t in the hole which you have dug, and af ter a year the dollars will begin to appear. '

" I set out the young tree. It grew and became what you now see it. The luscious fruit whxh it has borne year af ter year has brought me in far more than a hundred dol-lars, and it is yet a capiUI which yearly brings a good interest '

From here no mortal eye saw the ^ t or its living freight untU it reached a point one hundred mile, below Denver. Through Golden into the Platte river, and under the Denver bridges, . he went unno-ticed, nor slackened her pace unUl she lodged in a drift at the distonce below Den-ver already mentioned. The PUtte does not ran rery rapidly, but the boat had dc-quired such a wonderful speed in iU descent from the mountains that it far outrode the current A man who lives on a farm near the drift where the boat lodged, discovered the boys stiU in the boat which was nearly full of water, and took them to hU home, they were restored to their over-joyed parenUthefellowiBgerening, after having accomplished the most perUous journey in the quickest Ume ever before made by any human being who escaped alive. The distance traveled was a hundred and forty miles in two hours, but how it was ever done, or how the boat escaped being dashed to pieces upon some of the huge bould-ers or rocky cliffs which everywhere inter-c u t the coarse of Clear Creek, u nothing short of a Providential miracle.

A Note for Mothers. A number of physicians, practicing in

New York and Brooklyn, have come to the conclusion, after comparing observations, that ona leading cause of the mortality among children arises from their being left too much to the care of servants. It has been observed that chUdren wh® are direct-ly cared for by their parents, undressed and put to bed by them, and by them dressed m the morning and kept under loving mother s eye during the day, are, ss _ general thing, far more healthy, good-tem-pered, ar.d intelligent than those who are left almost exclu jively to the care of servants. In addition to this, it must be remembered that most of the accidents wh'ch happen to ChUdren, whereb> they are seriously injured and sometimes cripple 1, maimed, or r en -dered idioUc, occur through the negligence of those in whose care they are left l y a n -thinkine or unloving pmatt.—Home and School.

The qu-HBion, therefore, is of the greatest I i^wrtasee^ WKat eomtitutiott hat Christ firen j to hit cAure&Pt? It is ia consequence of their j *iewa on this sabject that B»ptist churches • differ in Aeir constitntion from all otter' charchet The points on which they differ fron ' them, and tieir reasons for so differing, are s s

i L Tie B^tis chnrcies regr.rd it as Chris-s-1

till that all church Eemhtw should be rcn-rrted p^rscnt. When Saul ~ essaytd to join tnwelf to the disciples" at Jerusalem, they Jeclined ta xeceirehim, becatse they "belieTed aot that he »as a disciple." Tt was not till th«y Moertaiaei this frsm hearin* that h9 had •<ee«ti the L*rd in the way," and had preached boWly at Bamascus," that they permitted him tfl be "witk them, cominr in going out, at Jerwaleai.".—Acts ix. 2tt-2a All the mera-bere, aieo, ot the first church a(« addressed as taints.—Remans i. 7; 1 Connihians L 2; Ephc-liuia i. 1.

Bat in Fedobaptist churches many persons are Bsnber* who are notr«ceiT«das conTertel. Ia the rpt*cop«l and Presbyterian establish- ! Bents, and :3ama cf the bodies formed by those | who hare teceded from, tken, yersc'ns are! received to fiiB eovmunicn withoct eridence of their conTcraon; and though the Coagrega-tioaal Pe^Wptista Tcqtiire proof at conTersicn before reeving pexsoas to the Lord's table, and to fail BH BiMrship, they mostly cenrd infanta aad luofBi^ted persons, whea baptized, as members of inferior degree. The Westminster •skfesaion tf Faith, which speaks the riews of jTObyteriaas, and of many Congregationalists

tUs sai^t, says that tie children cf fambert ^ iiaiuel::a membert, born Kithin tie church. ^me ladef^adeats differ from this riew, but •ry many «f thux rega^ both infants and the soBTerteJ, wh» baptiisd, as connected, in

Mme degree, with the church of Christ. (See Dr. Wardla* and Dr. CampbelL)

Baptist enrobes, on the contrary, receiTe af members th«ee only who giTC credinle eridenc* of their eon?rer«ion; they,do not ackntwledge ether infants or the tinconTerted as haring any risible conn tioB with the church of Christ.— Acts iL 47; tl Cor. iii 16,17.

n. Baptftt chnrehes (strictly so called) regard it aa Christ's will that all belierers l«ceiTed to Membership should be l-iptizei.

New Tsstanent churches consisted wholly of baptiied belieTsrs. Peter said to belieTers on the day Pentecest, " Be baptiied erery one of you," an4 they "were baptiied."—Acts ii. 38-41; see x. 43. So that the Baptist ihnrches at^ in this respect, "followers «f the ihurches of Go'l," as first founded by Christ Ud his apostles.—! Thess. ii. 14.

But in dcing so they differ from a!l other ihurches; firsm tha Quakers, who reject fcap-csm; from the P'Jobaptiats, who substitute aaather rite for th- immersion of belieTers, and from all open con —unionist whether Baptists or PeJobaptsts, who admit persons without being baptiied at all; instead of requiring, as th« apwLles and first churches diil that all belieTers skauld be baptiied before being RceiTed to nembershipand communion. Chrisl has glTen to iiis chnrehes no duffnrin^ power to Thej kiv? a large tcck stcrf alrmdy. set aside his laws; no U latise power to make nsw ones; bat was enjsined on them to "obserre all tiiags v-haltoeret" he has commanied (Matt, zxviii: 20_i; and, if eTer tempted to neglect his lawe " to obey God rather than men.'— Acts T: 29.

HL Bapti«t churches regard it as Christ s will that all ehorch members shoald be i-it-Tifiirsf meniert; that none should be made mfmbers. either agai&st their will, or without their knowledge. God is the Spirit, and those who worship hi« must do eo in tpirit, in truth— (John IT. 24); their serrice must be that sf loTe, faith aad abedience.—1 Cor. xiii. 1. Hom. riT. 23; XTi. 26. Ihey most " gield thea-ulvei unto G44, as those who are aliTe from the dead."—Ranr. tL 13. In ererj ^rt of their jerrice, thej: mtisl hare " first a willing isiad " —Cor. Tii* 12—must first giTe themselves to the Lord, ani then to the charch, by the will of Sod.—2 Cor. Tiii. 5.

But this r uBtcry rtertifrsM^ is epposel to th» eerripuUiannskdbj manj national establishments, and to the fi*es, imprisonEent, or worse penal-ti^ by whici membership has been ecforcel; it is equally opposed to the initiation cf ujjccc-tcicu infanti|by baptism; and to m^Vership by iirUL |

rV. Baptat churches maintain that Clirist reqtarea if/^ ac 'ri m evay member. Church •embers are poken of in Scripture as lively Itonea," fcm&ng part of "a spiritual Lcuse,'' which is devited to God.—1 Peter u. 5. The ptmg are to:fce instructed, (Ephesians Ti. 4); ia tinrtily Earned, the feeble-minded com-fcrted, the w ^ supported, y Thessaloniaas T. U); these ^ o rejoice, rejoiced with; those wfcaweep, BTmpathiied with; those who are DereaTed Tfcted.—Jamea L 27. To the sa-godly the is to be made known, (1 Hifc, ialoniana i. ; and good done to all men.— Salatiaas TiaO. these labors all thememb s engage Bat the dcsi ».'aijjg^jwo^l^|pt>bliahmenU eannot, ncr any Peds-baptist nor lof hi the matteJi

y. Ikptist iiM^^kfiUfrT* Ula-^ Christ e •m, thai wI4i UMwrrice should be gizen aitkirecig iifit iod Aat every eh-arch naaSfl-, whoft able, should thus'giTe. When making a ccUection for the poor saints at Jeru-ttlem, the apejtle say s: " As I hate given order to the church^ of Galatia, even so do yie; upon the first day if the week let aer^eiu ^ you lay by him in atoie, as God hath pr^pered him. ' -ICQnrri),?,

Thii injttnliictt sisws thsi H i« th? dnfy f crery ehnrck member to cwtribaie aa God enables him.; And the Apoatla ^ya, "If there b« first a vtSiiy mad, H is aee^t^ according ta Uiat a mab hath;' ihowisg that a willing mind ia neediU to make si»h aid acceptable to Sod. Ghtrrcl membera are to " bennd in this gnes" of iie|i and liberal giTing to the caose ef Chiiof.—2jCbr. fiiL 1-1& Bat infants can-not thss glre* and payments by compalsion, as ia 8Ut« chnaehes, are not a "gift" at alL—2 ^.Tiu.1. ;

VL Baptiat churches regard it aa Chriat'a win that all itia churches shauld be ttparaU and £*tiiietfnmtMeKOTli<cidaroriti*. "Xe are not of the world."-^oh» xr. 19. The teceptiea of Ikoae only wSo haTt been baptiied at their own daiirak •& a fiofeaaiaa «f fidth, makea a real and Tiaible fiitinetion between the ehnrch and thewodd; tetinfentmemberahip, by departing from thia ml% blenda tha church and the world ugether. Th» baptism of infanta and ike nn-jsarertci jciatcts the members of Christ with these whs ar# stin aeabers of the world. But the apoEtle sjws- "What commtmien hath light with datkcKf T and what concord hath Christ nth BelielF' Wherefore come ont from among them and be ye tef xrait saith the Lord, and toach not tke andean thing; and I will receiTe yon," etc r-SjCor tL6, 14-1&

It ta clear'that mry ayatem which exteada the aiga of Cbiatianity and ef isitiatioa into the ehsr^ t thoee who are not nae bent, doea, to that extent, alao obliterate the diatinctioa tetweea the church aad the worid.

S u c c e s s B a s e d u p o n M e r i t . — I t ii a subject of general remark, among both whole-

sale and retail druggists, that no me<iicine

introdaceil to the American public lias ever

gained such a popularity and met with so large

a sale in all parts of the land, in the same

length of time, a} Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical

Discovery. This cannot depend upon its

having been more largely advertised than any

other medicino, as such is not the case. The

correct explanation, we think, ii found ia the

fact that this medicine produces the most

wonderful and perfect cures of very bad caae?

of bronchial, throat and lung diseases, is un-

doubtedly the most perfect and efficient remedy

for all kinds of csngbs that has ever been intro-

duced to the public, and at the same time pos-

sesses th'i greatest of blood-purifying and

strengthening properties that medical gcienee

has been able to produce, thus rendering it a

sovereign remedy not only ia the cure of Con-

sumption, Bronchitis, Hoarseness and Coughs,

but also fcr all diaessfs of the liver and blood,

as scrofulous diseases, blotches, rough skin,

pimples, tlack specks and discolorations. It

has therefore a wide range of application aad

usefulness, and it not only gives the most per-

feit salisfaclion to all who use it, but far

exceeds the expectations of the most sanguine,

tbureliciting the loudest praise, anl makin;

permanent living advertising mediums of all

who use it. For these reasons it is that there

is not, perhaps, a druggist in all the vast

domain of thii continent, who tries to please

his cnsiomers ard supply their wants, that

does not keep and sell large liuantities of this

most valuable medicine.

jEsrp, low.v, May 5, 18T3.

Da. R V. PiERCi—DfarSir.—We take plea-

r.ire in saying that your Medicines have sold

entirely beyond oar expectations. W e regard

them as the best medicines extant, and hear

them spoken of in the highest terms of praise.
