THE CHUECH MILITANT In a former article, we sought to convey our impression of the general and great activity happily prevailing in the various branches of the Ohuroh of Christ in our day. We desire to communicate this impression to our readers as one calculated to encourage, and to arouse them. We ought not to be ignorant of these movements, or to hold a low estimate of them, or to keep coldly aloof from them. Let the tide of life rising and flowing in the church, spread abroad into every channel, let the leaven work its way io every part of the lamp until the whole be- leavened. We ftotioe several principal indications of such increased efficiency in the ohuroh. Mwtj 4her0,isan increase of the esprit ducorps> both in separaj_* denominations, and in the Evan gelioal* ehtischas a whole. The spirit of union and the spirit df" a wise denominatiodalism, may, in certain aspects, be viewed as one. Both are instances, indifferent spheres, of the espritdu corps. There is no in...

. _* ¦ m * ¦ EEV. J. C. _GAITGOOLY AND THE BOSTON : UNITAEIANS. It has long been understood that but feeble manifestations of zeal for the conversion of the world are to be expected among the unevangelical denominations. The inseparable connexion between soundness in the faith and practicar efficiency in Christian labor, is no where so distinctly seen as in the missionary activity of the church. The societies of Protestantism that have filled the world with the name of Jesus, and planted the germ of Christian civilization on every shore, are the off-shoots of a vigorous and decided orthodoxy at home. Lately the Unitarians of Boston have come into possession of an article the disposal of which has occasioned them no little embarrassment—a native Hindoo "convert," desiring to go as a missionary to his countrymen. An evangelical community would take up such a case without hesitancy and with ardor. They would have no difficulty in deciding what to do with a Brahmin converted to ...

EDITOR'S TABLE. THE SIGNET RING, and other Gems. Prom the Dutch of Rev. J. P. Le Liefde. Boston: Gould & Lincoln. New York: Sheldon & Co. Cincinnati: Geo. S. Blanchard. 16mo., pp. 302. This choice volume comprises three stories, which for clearness, purity and richness in evangelical sentiment well deserve the name of "gems. " The first story is already known to the public, and is, perhaps, the best of the .collection. The story is more of a story, and has all the interest of natural life, besides conveying a lesson invavaluable to every young pastor struggling to realize the ideal of pastoral meekness and zeal. The others are told, not for their own sakes, but almost as allegories. The narrative is an admirably adjusted framework by means of which the prime truths of the gospel are exhibited in an engaging and impressive manner. We _commend the book as a real choice and addition to our narrative literature. For sale by Lindsay & Blakiston. HISTORY OP...

A BOLD MOVE. All strategy does rfot belong to war. The lion-like boldness o£great_^military chieftains is sometimes rivalled by the ambassadors of the Prince of peace. Of late _ItaJxJhas been the distinguished theatre of such i€_jtll> vements. The rapid, the energetic and triumphant progress of the second Napoleon from mount Cenis to the Mincio last summer, and the daring and equally successful descent of Garibaldi upon Sicily of last month, have perhaps acted as an example upon the Waldensian brethren, and led them to a stroke of policy quite as brilliant and startling in its way as these. At the recent session of the Synod at Pomaret_, Piedmont, on the 18th of May, it was resolved unanimously and aniid great enthusiasm to remove their theological Seminary, professors, students and. ajl, from its retired-situation, La Tour, to the city of Florence. • There is a nerve, decision and _confidence in the future leadings of Providence _ip, ' this movement, which is truly_.refres...

"ANNALS OF THE POOB." HER DATS ABE NOW NUMBERED. The annals of the poor are filled with numberless cases, the recital of which makes our hearts turn away in sadness, and our eyes to drop many a sympathizing, tear. Some, five months ago, we found onr way into a second story back room, and visited a very old, lone woman, who looked, even *i hen, * as if she * was at the end of her journey of life,—age had wrinkled her face, and sickness had caused her to grow faint and weary of this world, yet her feeble step was directed early in the mornings to the wareroom, and with her hundred of yarn she >gain set down to her wheel and patiently earned all her aching body would allow. Month after month she had spun out a scanty living, but all this time her disease had been gnawing her frame, and she was sinking quietly down, almost unheard of, to the grave. Her rent had been paid up to the time I first visited her by her patient toil, but she had grown so feeble, that her wheel co...

THE M0L0KANS We flopy the' following very interesting account from the Evening Bulletin of this city, from tb&r special correspondent at Constantinople :— It appears that, ninety years ago, a Rnssian nobleman, who was sent as Ambassador to England, had in his train of servants a man and his wife, who, after residing a short time in the country, became so impressed with the difference between the debasing idolatries of their own Church, and the elevating influences of the true Christian religion, that they determined to search out the reason for themselves! After a few months' study of the Bible, they became convinced of the error of their former belief; they w.ere converted in heart, as well as in mind. And now their consciences not snffering them to hide the new light which they had received) they determined to share it with their countrymen. As soon as circumstances permitted, they obtained a- discharge from the service of their masters, and returned to Russia, whe...

PRESBYTERIAN MONEYS US THE TREASURY OF THE A. H. M. S. _, In speaking of the probable separation of the two bodies now in co-operation in the American Home Missionary Society, the Evangelist of last week makes the following announcement:j We are authorized to say that the policy here intimated, of crowding off the Presbyterians and seizing all the funds, fiods no echo in the Executive Committee, unless it be in the breast of the solitary individual who indites such articles as these. No one has ever dared to name such a thing there. Nor have that Committee ever had any other thought but that there should be an equitable "division of sacred funds/'. They recognize as " the obvious rule of equity in the case —that what came from Presbyterians should go to Presbyterians. " If this be generally understood, that such is the frank and honest intention of the Executive Committee, it will go far to allay the natural indignation of Presbyterians at the outrage which is thus coolly proposed...

THE RECENT FESTIVALS. - The ladies in three of our city churches (the Logan Square, Kenderton and Walnut Street,) have lately been ' - engaged in this pleasant, though somewhatlaborious enterprises forraising _moneyi There is no reason why these festivals should not be actually conducive to the welfare of the church by bringing the members socially together, and by promoting social intercourse among the members of various churches, uniting them in mutual acts of kindness and in sympathy with the weaker members. So far as oar observation has extended in these instances, this has actually been the case. And as to pecuniary resnlts, with moderate expectations and moderate outlay, the income has, we are happy to say, proved highly ' satisfactory, amounting in the aggregate to nearly $1,500 clear profit. **

THE PHILADELPHIA IK&UIEER. This excellent daily has more than fulfilled the expectations formed by the public when it entered upon its new career. Its news department has been full, varied and interesting, and up to the times. It has been very liberal to its subscribers in the way of illustrated supplements, especially during the sojourn of the Japanese. It has faithfully described the movements of the leading religious bodies. It has kept itself aloof from matters unfit for the.family circle. In short it has suddenly risen to be quite an institution among the news-seekers of every sort in Philadelphia, and as snch we unhesitatingly recommend it to our'readers';

WEST PHILADELPHIA The environs of Philadelphia abound in pleaeant summer residences _, and many of our citizens alternately reside in the country while they hibernate in briok and marble blocks in the compact city. This emigrating like birds, every change of season, in a climate so delightful aa ours , is not salted to man's nature, which naturally loves a local •habitation and a fixed place of abode/ still _eyeso this is to be preferred to the _demoralizing fashion of summering at some crowded watering place, where home, comfort, and ease are sacrificed in the pursuit of pleasure. There is no locality, however, that so fully combines-the advantages of city and country, as that pftftbfWdst Philadelphia, long known as Hamilton village.

The results have been glorious indeed. The pastor stated that this movement, during the three years, has brought into their own churoh Sunday School, as their official records show, more than two thousand new _soholars. Owing to the peculiar movable, tenement, character of the population on the west of them, they have perhaps never had permanently connected wit...
