_%wn%$mhn> For the American _Presbyterian. A CRITICISM REVIEWED. In a late number of the American Presbyterian we noticed a criticism upon our version writ occurs in Heb. i, 10. This criticism was presented under the caption of Kat'_Asohas We have no acquaintance with the author, but presume that it was made with a love for truth, and evidently _^ith a desire to obviate what, in the mind of the writer, appeared to be a difficulty, from _CteoTogy. What those "unlettered readers," of whom he spoke, may gain by such an exposition, we cannot tell. But we can easily decidewhat value those who are not "unlettered" would attach to such a criticism, by the consideration of the following facts. The critic; ' _&$£ *!.._!_%& Archasv , are ' two Greek words, signifying _«in beginnings)'&_$& the translation of Heb. i. 10, should thus be read, and he very summarily condemns the translators to the pu nishment and plagnes written in Rev. xxii. 18, for ...

- F or the American Presbyterian. "MODERN ANTIQUITIES." I must needs take-a text, or the reader, after looking at the above caption, will not believe that I am in sober earnest. ,; Well, here it is—Ley. xxi. 17^—24-*- read it at your leisure ; it is too long for me to .quote. I have read " it with surprise, as, I.presume-, many have, to see that God should have .made, " a blemish," as it is called, in man's physical organization—a cause*for rejecting him from serving at the altar. "A* flat nose, a club foot, a hunchback, or he that hath the scurvy,."- &c, should be excluded from the service of the Lord I " He . might eat of the bread of his God, both .that/which ja the holy, and that which,is the most, holy; but he must not come nigh to' offer:" that is, he must not attempt to officiate'as a priest. In all oth"er cases, I believe", in the Bible, moral <( blemishes," and * these alone., disqualified their possessor for serving_,at the'altar of God; but here we ha...

SKEPTICAL CHRISTIANS. For the American If 6ne could, with tears/ exclaim, from the depths of his paternal anxiety and, distress, to the Redeemer himself—^"Lord, I believe; help thoii my unbelief," (Mark ix.24, * ) and wai not rebuked, how should we Hesitate befor,e looking with cold distrust and suspicion upon those about us now who are filled .with doubts and unbelief, notwithstanding their severe internal struggles, prayers, and supplication's?, , From the' appearance and, manners of some Christians, the journey to heaven would seem but a triumphal march' , resounding with pseans and reoiciries. joicirigs.- Fortliem there would seem no foes to face.

" Of ali the great schools and universities in the world, by far the "greater part were founded by religious jnen, and for religious purposes.

It has often happened that men of this class have given liberally to the endowment of colleges. But few among them have had the forethought, or the benevolence, or the faith to encounter the discouragements of raising from its infant feebleness an institution of the higher order. Corrupt or defective Christianity has had vitality enough to do it; but infidelity or religious indifference almost never. And did the disposition exist, the .Church would be excee...

LETTER FROM HETTERNICH TO OTMBOLDT. On his own early preference for ihe Natural Sciences—the relation of modern science to true religion, &c. Vienna, May 10,1846. My D-EAr 'Bakon:— * *T I know how to designate the place which belongs to me in' the avenue of science, and which to, my regret isfar from the sanctuary. • What I have told you, my dear Baron, is neither gasconade, nor an excess of modesty; it is the unvarnished historyof my life. You do not know this hfetory, and I will relate it to you in a few, words. At the age at which life takes its directions, I contracted an inclination for tbe exact and natural sciences, which I would permit* myself to describe as irresistible, and a disgust for practical life, which I would call unconquerable, if I had not overcome both this disgust and this inclination. * * * Fate has separated me from the -obje©t»_dfeiny ¦eboiee,'-atMiWiasr thrust s ine*npou fcife road'I should not have chosen.

THE'STORY OF THE GROSS. Every attentive reader of missionary journals has noticed how often the simple story of the cross has touched the hearts of inquiring heathen, and awakened their wonder and admiration. The _^ case of the Greenlander, Kayafrfak; has been often repeated. He had showu no interest in any truth, till, one day, the missionary read to him, ftbra Luke's,Gospel, tbe account of Christ's qgony in tbe garden, when he stepped up to the- teble, and with an air of earnestness andf 8urprisasald_^tl WS_^ was that? Tell me that once 'more1 / for 1} _{#, desire to be saved." An affecting instance of this kind is recorded in the London Juvenile Missionary .Magazine fox March last. It occurred in a school, for girls in China. These girls had learned to read, and every morning they _'read a chapter in the Bible, which_, was explained to them by the missionary. They were very attentive, and remembered a great deal that they heard, so as to repeat it afterwards.. When a chapte...

GOD IN THE STORM We find the. following interesting account of tbe tornado in Portsmouth, Ohio, in a recent number of the Central Christian Herald. It is from the pen of Rev. Dr. E. P. Pratt, pastor of the Presbyterian Chureh in that city. ' . - The violent storm of wind and hail that passed over'your city (Cincinna&) _* last Monday, 21st of May, visitedus"iri'Portsmouth with great severity;_. It _commenced here at five minutes past 4 o'clock * P. M., and lasted for about ten minutes, in its greatest fury. The damage done to _property Was great. A large number of business houses in dif-r ferent localities were unroofed, and parts of the upper stories were blown off in some cases. Shade trees suffered, and fruit trees were rooted up or blown down; and worse than all, three lives were lost—one a little child of some six years, and two; men, Mr. Price and Mr. M'Callister. The tall steeple of our church was blown down, and about one-third_"of the roof torn off. In the stee...

PRESBYTERIANISM IN EUROPE. * Note by Humboldt. I _Tiad spoken of the intensity of the love of nature. 1 had compared St. BasiL with Bernardin de St. Pierre. The following, from the English correspondence of the Christian Intelligencer , contains a summary of interesting facts, most of which have appeared in a distinct form in our columns, but which make a better impression collected in a single paragraph. The cause of Presbyterianism is beginning to revive in many different countries. This revival is proportional to the increase of vitality in different churches., The present awakening in Sweden is marked by si desire for the requiring of Synodical power. The King of Prussia, who, notwithstanding many unwarranted cahunuies, has long been-a steadfast and 'earnest Christian, was anxious, for many years, to establish a Presbyteriau government, based chiefly on the Scottish model, but was deterred only by the dead state of tbe community, who, he feared, would appoint rationalist...

*0BMAKO2_T _AITD _VAITTE OF CHElSTIABf CHARACTEE. It coats much to form the character of a mature and experienced Christian. To estimate aright what has gone into such a character, and what constitutes its trne worth, it would be necessary to understand fully the plans of the fltiirnal _^ather_^j the work of the Redeemer; the agency of the Holy Spirit; the influences which have been brought to bear on the intellect, the will, the imagination, and the heart; and the conflicts and struggles of perhaps a long and troubled life. Into every such character there enters, as an essential element in its formation, and, in the result, the purpose of God, laid far back in the depths of eternity, to provide a plan, of salvation, and the purpose that that plan should be developed in reference to that particular member of our fallen raae to whom it is in fact thus applied. Into the formation of that character there has en-| tered, as an element, all that the Saviour has done in becoming i...

CORRECTION OF A REPORT. To the Editors of the American Presbytferiaii. Dear Brethren : The report copied into your columns has unintentionally misrepresented my views in the statement of some remarks which I made in the General Assembly,, so as .to convey an entirely erroneous impression upon what I regard as a vital point. ' If this report had appeared in another city than. Philadelphia, and in another paper than the American Presbyterian, and had regarded a matter less than one which I consider of the greatest importance, I should probably have felt it best to pursue my ordinary course in all such cases—to let the matter die as a- personal one of no consequence to the.public. As no one i3 in the least degree responsible for this note bat myself, you will allow me to state the-matter in-my own way. You represent __ nift_^ >aa-_aajing' without any qualification, that I have no objection to.the removal of the Church Extension Committee from Philadelphia. It- seems to me ...

THE CHUE€_S MILITANT. To a careless observer, even, it must be manifest that unwonted activity prevails in the Christian world. The Church has been revived, and the revival is permanent. Not merely because daily _prayer meetings are persisted in here and there in our large cities, but because the Church in all its branches has experienced a ne' W development of healthful and determined energy. There is- ail enlarged consciousness of the greatness of the work —the open door set before her. There is'a girding on of armour for the final struggle and triumph, felt to be nearer than ever before. The Spirit of God, dovelike atid flamelike, has* made the entire circuit of Christendom, pervading whole nations at once and converting men by hundreds of thousands. We have beheld in our day the peaceable removal of the most obstinate barrie rs_^. tO'the entrance " of the Gospel among heathen nations. The millions of mankind are open everywhere to missionary effort. And the heart of the ch...

Abe the _Japanese visiMra a ch&is-TIASr COUNTRY? While itseemsr that the authorities in Washington took all due_^_ate to have a room fitted up where the Japanese might conduct their heathen worship, special care'has been" taken to keep them ignorant of the religion of this land. Those who are acquainted with the history of our people cannot but know that our greatness is chiefly attributable to our religion; "Happy is the people whose God is Jehovah," said the Psalmist.- The saying explains the prosperity of this country. But-unless the public have been misinformed, our Japanese visitors have been carefully prevented from learning anything about our religion, or its influence upon the nation1 .k How strikingly this contrasts with the conduct of Yictoria in a- similar case!
