* _» m m m w ' For the _PresbyteriBm Banner and Advocate. : "Both*Philip and the Eunuch," Dr. M'Kinney :—-I am greatly obliged to your correspondent, "S. J," for his fayorable estimate of my _article on the . baptism of the Eunuch, and stall always be glad to see suggestions and criticisms from his able pen. A single remark of his, however, seems to require some notice. He says, " Dr. Carson, we thinky is right in saying that-_^both' is used twice, for this is really the force of ¦ -¦ the original: So, te Philippos kai ho Eunouchos—" both, Philip and the Eunuch." NowI think Dr. Carson was wrong; because,in the, phrase, "both Philip and the Eunuch," ithere is nothing in the original to correspond with the word;both. .-.-,If there is, where is it ? la it the particle te, mho,te PhilipposV But that never has the force of amphoteroi, both. As a conjunction, it means no more than our English word, and. When followed by kai , it is moat generally and very properly treated by our transla...

The war in Persia It is probable that the hostilities which have been commenced between Great Britain and Persia will speedily be terminated, as it appears that arrangements are in progress with a view to that end. Compared with the scenes which were lately enacted in the Crimea, the war has been on a small scale, and it is not probable that against a force such as England could bring into the field from her Indian possessions, the troops of Persia would display any remarkable resistance. Oar object in _adverting to this subject, is not to chronicle the movements which have already taken place, nor to point out what we believe to be the probable issues of the contest. We desire rather to make our reaaers familiar with certain great facts and • principles which underlie the whole movement, and which are intimately connected with important national changes which must speedily occur in Central Asia, and which are to have an influential beating on the progress of Christianity in...

For the Presbyterian Banner and Advocate. Mb. Editor :—In a recent article, I discussed the language of an unknown writer in the Princeton Review, on the status of the infants of -believers. You have kindly ventured a " presumption "—that is, " a charitable judgment"—that, in the use of certain _objectionable terms, there must have been meant what _«re would be veryglad to know was intended, but -what we must think could not have been meant, for the following reasons: % First. Because, in advancing and maintaining his presumption that _thelchildren of believers are " members of the invisible Church," the Reviewer in no instance insists upon that idea of the Church invisible, which includes all the elect, even those yet unregenerate. Inasmuch as, upon this point, the defence of Ms theory would rest, we should fairly presume that he would call attention to it, as justifying his position. Especially when, in common parlance, the doctrine would be startling, and very liable, at leas...

The "Review" Explained. When we were nearly ready for the press, we received the following letter, affirmatory of our understanding of the article in the Princeton Review, on the Status of Infants. The author must not be surprised at the watchfulness of the Church on the subject treated of. It is a foundation doctrine, on which is built an extended system of faith, feeling, and practice. It affects the emotions and conduct of God's people. It relates to an important distinctive feature in our Church. The hopes and duties of parents are connected therewith; and the immortal interests of the rising race are thereby deeply affected: Mr. Editor :—The charge against the Princeton Reviewf on the status of baptized children, appears, at last, to have its basis attenuated to the substitution of the word or for and, in the following sentences; one of which states that the membership of baptized children in the visible Church is based on the " presumption that they are, AND will prove to ...

Washington Correspondence. Washington, March 16,1857. There is no foundation for the report that Mr. Whittlesey has resigned the Comptrollership of the Treasury. He is willing and prepared to surrender, but requires the President to issue his mandate. The removal of Mr. Washington, as Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, seems to have given.very general satisfaction; for it was his misfortune to nave incurred an unpopularity that was limited to no political prejudice. Indeed, the most active opposition came from the party with which he was identified, and appeared to ramify, through all-its divisions. An amendment to the civil bill, requiring this officer to be nominated to the Senate—he had heretofore been appointed at the discretion of the Secretary of the Treasury—was aimed especially at Mr. Washington, who, it is believed, could not have been confirmed, had he been sent in. By successful and adroit management, the majority in the Senate succeeded in postponing action upon th...
