for the Preabyteriua Banner and Advocate, Baptism,—Ho. 1. We propose to offer a few plain thoughts on baptism, designed especially for the youthful readers of the JB&nner and Advocate, This work is the more necessary at the present time, as the advocates of immersion are making very great efforts to propagate their peculiar views of the subject? _Mrst, I shall consider THE MODE OF BAPTISM, It is well known _fciiat there is quite a diversity of opinion and practice among Christians in this respect. The far _greater part, amounting to full nine-tenths, of Evangelical Christians, content themselves with a simple application of water by pouriug_._or sprinkling, as the most Scriptural and significant mode. A large and respectable body, however, styling themselves Baptists, insist upon a dipping of the whole body under water, as essential to .valid baptism.

How sweet is the clime Of the Summer time, Where the Winter never comes; Whore the beauties ne'er fade . la which Nature's arrayed, ' Nor the frost nor the bleak wind numbs. 0, fair is the scene, Where the groves all green, Wave ever beneath a bright sky; Where the gay bird calls Through her airy halls, And the zephyrs' mild whisper by. "Where the fig entwines .. ' ... Amid clustering vines, Where flourish the olive and palm; Where the orange tree blooms, And the spice-perfumes Are shed out o'er the fields like balm. Where mansions peep out From espaliers about, In beautiful splendor and pride; And chariots grand Roll over the land, And float gondolas float on the tide. 0, pleasantly there, And with little of oare, Life passes all joyous and ...

My recent. visit to North Britain has vividly brought out before my mind contrasts between England and Scotland—moral contrasts, decidedly in favor of the land of the Gelfc.»; These contrasts present themselves even in respect to the physical condition of the Scotch and English peasantry. On that point, there is a strange ignorance in this part of the island.. People in the South hear of lowland bothies and Highland huts, of squalid poverty and wretched diet: of oaten bread and sneep-head ; ana straightway conclude, that the...

There are the feuds and animosities of two hostile parties, who have been engaged in deadly strife, and whose determination, each, to possess the seat of power is resolute. Then there is the fact which we see stated, that the militia are to be on the election ground, armed; also, that Gen- Smith, as the U. S. officer, has the command of the militia.

The Ocean jBbmesank in twenty minutes after the occurrence. Seventy-seven lives were lost by the disaster. The London Times, in an editorial on the harvest, says that, thus far, there is no prospect of prices receding to a point injurious to agricultural interests; but there is little doubt of that plenty which is necessary for the inte_^pts of trade, and the comfort of the people at large.
