; idleness; Idleness is the bane of body and mind, the nurse of naughtiness, the step-mother of discipline, the chief author of all mischief, one of the seven deadly sins, the cushion on which the devil chiefly reposes , and a great cause not only of melanchol y but of many other diseases; for the mind is natir rally active, and if it be not occupied about some honest business, it rushes into mischief, or sinks into melanoholyl _j .

INTELLECT People of small intellect are very dangerous enemies, because they are likely to have few extraneous thoughts to divert them from their immediate object of malice; because they are shrewd noticers of personalities, and personal weaknesses because there is nothing which a fool and a mean man enjoy so much as to catch a wise and honest one at a disadvantage.

BENOKI&ATIGffAL LITERATURE. We should have a denominational literature; and what is more, we should read it, encourage it, patronise it. We should do our best/to improve it; we should see that it is weeded " of everything narrow and offensively sectarian, and_? purified from everything low and undignified. We should . seek to render it a vehicle of healthy Christian sentiment and sound Christian doctrine; ' of correct and ' candid estimates of our fellow Christians of* other Communions. A denominational literature thus characterized might _perform a noble part in liberalizing our own minds, and enabling others to judge- of usfairly and kindly. We shall be wanting in duev regard to our own reputation, and shall be guilty of throwing away an important means of usefulness, if we allow our literature' to degenerate into sectarian*Jbigotry, or. make , it.'a vehicle of scurrilous abuse of all w_.h.0_,differ from us We trust this magazine is guiltless of the evil spirit we thus...

PENTECOST. When- God of old came down from beaten, In power and wrath He oame;. Before his feet the clouds were riven, Half darkness and half flame.

The fires that rushed on Sinai down In sudden torrents dread, Now gently light a glorious oxown On every sainted head. Kbblb.

EDITORIAL _EXCURSION. Ho. II. Memphis, Tenn., Jane I, 1860. Dear Editors :—I last addressed you from that city of churches and rail-roads, Indianapolis, whose flower-gardens, and beautiful wide streets, and handsome buildings I was loath to leave. A word more about the churches before a final adieu. The Episcopalians, In their little architectural gem, are just introducing a chime of bells, and, what is better still, are providing beforehand for the payment of the debt upon the building by a method well worthy of imitation, and one which reflects credit upon their snergetic rector, Rev. Mr. Stringfellow, recently _af Hyde Park, on the Hudson. Cards have been circulated through the congregation containing a promise to pay a certain _amount monthly towards the debt. Each one puts down what he can, and every three months the money is collected. Thus three or four hun-Ired dollars are raised and paid over every _quarter, the interest on that amount of the debt leases, and before they ...

THE ASSEMBLY'S COMMITTEE , AND THI CONGREGATIONALIST PAPERS. , - Ever since the appointment of the Committee of Conference on Home Missions by our Assembly, the Gongregationalist journals east and west, with ' scarcely an exception, have industjriously laboured to forestall and frustrate the action contemplated by that. appointment. If it were the business of the Committee to consult these journals npbn the method of adjustment, thef_* _^ Wand _jrould certainly result in failure. Bot it is a work which will not be done through the columns of newspapers. A Committee often grave, high-minded and honorable Christian men, and ministers of the Gospel, are appointed to confer with those who know their worth, and who will receive _^ them as coming in the Master's _jname,. apon an errand involving the Interests of Christ's kingdom equally dear to both.
