Too many Sermons. A clerical friend recently expressed to us his approbation of the article of the Dispatch on this subject , and stated that it had been received with stron g approval by the whole religious press of the country-. We are happy that the views expressed in that article have the approbation of the clergy • but no good can be done , unless they receive the approval of the laity. The congregations of the country must consent to give up the cruel tyranny of compelling clergymen to preach two sermons every Sabbath , besides a lecture in the week , or the abuse can never be remedied. There is no profession in the country worked as hard , and paid as poorly as* the clergy. We know a prominent clergyman in Richmond , who, during the last Summer, actually preached eight sermons in a single week. Can any man stand up long, under such exhausting toils? We venture to say that no member of a congregation would require as hard work of a good horse. One sermon a week is as much ...

Sin. Sin is the greatest folly, and the sinner the greatest fool in the world. There is no such madness in the most fitful lunacy. Think of a man risking eternity and his everlasting happiness on the uncertain chance of surviving another year. Think of a man purchasing a momentary pleasure at the cost of endless pain. Think of a dying man living as if he were never to die. Is there a convert to God who looks back upon his unconverted state, and does not say with David, "Lord, I was as a beast before thee." Now, conversion not only restores Qtod to tb ^ e heartj but reason also to her throne. Time and eternity are now seen in their just proportions-—in their right relative dimensioDs; the one in its littlenjss , and the other in its greatness. When the light of heaven rises on the soul, what grand discov eries does she make , of the exceeding evil of Sin, of the holiness of the Divine %wf of the infinite purity of Divine justice, of the grace and greatness of Divine love.

London, September 16, 1856. The union of forces against that Evangelism , which is the life-blood of true religion all the world over, never was more manifest than at the present time. Let me furnish one or two illustrations of this position. First of all, we have the thinly disguised alliance between Romanism and Tractarianism, the latter publishing and circulating works of " devotion," the production of '" saints ," whose sanetity after all is of that doubtful quality which justifies the end by the means j and which, while one h...

Xiove. The love we bear to God is the test of our Christian character. It is one of the first fruits of saving faith, i*nd is of the Holy Sp irit's production. " For love is of Ood, and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not, knoweth not God, for God is love." The mow we love God, the greater will be the delight he will take in us, and the more tenderly and affectionately will he deal with us. True love to God requires us to give it\ ill 111 liUV UU1C1 piliUC ill UUI uuuupifl) a,* »v devote our lives to his service. Everything else must become subordinate. Self must submit to God, and holiness must take the place of sin. Nothing can be substituted for the love we owe to God. But, how far do we come short of what is due from us ! The sanctuary of the soul is often rudely invaded; the pure flame is often adulterated ' , devotion becomes cold j self, the world, and sin struggle for the mastery; and when they have secured a hold, the tender affecti...

Settlers Invited. Bev. J. C. Hanna, in; noting the settlement of a minister in the church at Deer Creek, Tazewell Co., Ill, says: "This church is in a beautiful portion of the country, about fifteen or twenty miles from Peoria; it is a small church, but having been organized but eighteen months, it has grown rapidly. This may properly be called a Presbyterian neighborhood , mostly from Ohio. Those" seeking homes in the West, would do well to look at Deer Creek. " There is also a large scope of country, including several interesting points, such as Deer Creek, Delavan, Kappa, Clinton, and others, that ought to be occupied by Presbyterians, as well as a vast country on the North-West of the Illinois river, which I cannot now describe. The former is on the South-East of the river, on or near the Railroads. Has not the Lord made this country to be occupied by Orthodox Christians? If so, let them come and take possession of it." __.__!

The Manchester church difficulty that has occupied so much attention at the meetings of Presbytery, and in the secular papers for some time , elicited a spirited discussion. The final result was a d...

We learn, from an elder in his congregation, that this beloved pastor fell asleep in Jesus on Tuesday, September 23d, at Ms residence in Piqua, Miami County, Ohio, where he had been faithfully laboring in his Master's vineyard, to the great satisfaction of all his congregation, for nearly eight years. A committee of^is congregation (and his family) accompanied his remains to Lancaster (his former field of labor) where his mortal body was entombed, there to rest until the great day of final accounts.

Exemplary Beneficence and Christian Conduct.
