Where are the Nine? Our Lord once asked this question when he was oh the earth. He had cleansed1 ten lepers, and only one of them returned to express his gratitude for the , mercy shown him. The,others made no,r.eturn;whatever, to the Son pfrGpd, _,aridv it . wasthis .that made him ask,. I_^here -are, the nine ?" It shows, that he_^_extpeots; some _jtokensy._of gratitude, from those he: favors;, and-/feels the Baseness of the act when men refuse to acknowledge their thankfulness. t And surely it* is not too much for him to, expect. He makes no charge for his mercies. He sets no price on the dewdrops or the sunshine, nor on the bread we eat or the raiment we wear/ nor for .health, home, _^r friends—nor for his life, his agonies, his Blood—r nor_,for pardon,ipr.peace.,>oe joy in the Holy; Ghost,,.

OUR RELATIONS WITH ENGLAND In the question of war or peace, Christianity has a deep interest, and Christians are bound to use their influence. The principles of the Prince of Peace arc ever to guide them; and especially are they to regard these carefully, in times of danger and temptation. In the present attitude of affairs with England, we feel confident that we are in the right. But the Euglish feel equally confident that the right is with them. The two nations may be regarded as equally enlightened, honest, upright in their intentions and Christian in their feelings; and also as equally prejudiced, each in their own favor. We say to the English : " You regard the Confederates as belligerants , and hence, according to your own laws and customs, we have the right to search and capture." They say to us : " You regard the Confederates as rebels, and as such they have the right of assylum, and' must be protected by our flag." Now, what is to be done ? If both parties wish to d...

: EASTERN SUMMARY B Q _SXOfr _AJSW NE W-ENGLAND. 1The . Liberation op Messrs. Mason, Slidell,jAnd Eustis, from Fort Warren , has been,*as a matter of course, a subject of great rejoicing. But these gentlemen and their fellow-inmates,_^ traitors and conspirators against a government which has supported and enriched them almost through life, do not'seem to»have fared very hardly. They'have been confined in.spacious rooms, 'and the May op 6f Boston and its aristocratic families vied with each other, it is said, in sending them the richest luxuries and dainties which -money_^or- skill could ¦ _^ procure.

MINISTERS DECEASED We are not disposed to adopt the common saying, that " Death loves a' shining mark ;" because, the fatal archer is equally sure in his aim, whether he directs the arrow at the brilliant or the obscure. He never misses; and is not peculiarly choice as to the object. High and low, rich und poor, learned and illiterate, the righteous and the wicked, prepared and unprepared, come equally within the scope of his vision, and find him no respecter of persons. It is but a short month since we recorded the death of that valued brother in Christ, Rev. Henry G. Comingo, D.D. In what seemed to be the midst of his days, and the prime of his usefulness in the Church, his Lord said to him, Come up higher, and the obedient soul ascended. And now the same Lord has demanded the presence of two others, near his throne above, and they also arc gone. For them the day of toil has ended, and the immortality of rest has begun. Trials have been endured with patience, and the confl...
