THE GREATEST HEEESY What is the greatest heresy, of all? What doctrine, what ordinance, what conduct is it connected with? What say you, Christian reader? Among all the.errprs in doctrine and practice, that youknow of among professed Christians, what is the worset, what the most dangerous, the most injurious? For Whatever is the greatest heresy, the most pernicious and dangerous j ought to be avoided with the most, earnest and scrupulous care. The late eminent man of God, Rev. J. W. Alexander, D.D., wrote to his friend: "The greatest heresy is want of love/ Oh! for a cycle'of peace. Oh I for-a breathing spell from these unnatural contentions! I feel as if I could join any, who would, humbiy unite in direct and kind efforts to save sinners arid relieve human misery. Cannot a poor believer go along in Ms pilgrimage heavenward, without being always on militaiy:duty ? At the judgment, I heartily believe; that some heresies.of heart and temper will be charged as worse*than heavy do...

DEATH OF BE. HWGHTON. with sad hearts the editors of the American Presbyterian announeo the death of their late esteemed associate, the Rev. Daniel C. Houghton, B. D. Some months since he was attacked by a severe pain in his right foot, which gradually developed itself as a gangrene. For the first weeks of his attack he was able to be in his of&oe, and it was with great reluctance that his active and energetic nature submitted to the necessity of entire rest from labor, and to the doty of endeavoring to secure his recovery from severe disease. His physicians seemed to have much hope of his recovery. There appeared to be a well-de-HfftfJ separation between the _diseaSed anH sound flesh in his foot; his appetite continued good 5 the remedies seemed to work kindly, and it was hoped that he might recover. The hot and changeable weather of July produced some doubtful symptoms, butnothing positively alarming. One of his brethren spent nearly an hour with him on Saturday af...

THOSE HATCHETS , Although, in some respects, the science (if such it may be called) of geology has seemed to _^ contradict the . simpje.ieaciiings q£ Scripture, yet some of its broadest conclusions have been in surprising harmony with the cosmogony and chronology of Moses. While there have been, seemingly, specific differences, there has been a general agreement. Thus while the records of the quarry seem to require for the creation of the different orders of beings and classes of animals upon the earth, periods of great length and widely remote from each other, differing very greatly from our idea of days and intervening nights, yet the order of their creation is precisely the same in both records,—ascending from lower to higher, from fishes to birds, from birds to beasts of the earth, reaching last of all the sole owner of the Creator's image—rman. Geology has also strengthened the natural argument-for the unity of God, by showing us the same great laws in operation through...

While there he was visited by the late king of the French , Bouis Philippe, who, as Duke of Orleans, enjoyed in exile, the hospitalities of Monod_'s house, of which, after his accession to the throne of France, he retained a grateful remembrance. Thirty-five years after those attentions in the family of the humble and exiled pastor, the king welcomed him to his palace, and had the satisfaction of _requiting the kindness, which, when it was received, he s...

We perused the very full and able reports of its proceedings that went abroad, with deep interest. We followed the great debate on the Board question, impressed alike with the strong intellectual qualities, and with the admirable Christian temper and gentlemanly bearing of the chief disputants.

"ANNALS OF THE P00_&" The winter has gone—the warm rays of the sun have driven the frost away from among us, and men now obtain work; yet many of the poor are suffering from want. The great mass of street beggars do not plead this as an excuse for their importunities; but think you the famil y of that widow, who has lain upon her bed week after week, unable to care for herself, can live upon yon sunbeam which lights their mother's room ? or can yonder babe feed upon the summer breeze which has come? Truly, the heart of a city missionary grows faint as he looks upon their faces, and knows he has not the means to supply their want THE EXHORTER. Some twenty years ago, a bright, intelligent young man enlisted in the English army. India then became his home; and while there he found opportunities, among his military duties, to point his finger heavenward , and; tell his _comrades of the mansions there prepared for those who were*like Jesus. After serving sonfe thirteen ye...

Hoon-Day Jrayer-meeting.—On the 4th of July the meeting was well attended and spirited. It was gratifying to see so many persons prepared to celebrate _&_4 national anniversary in the quiet and simple _exerckea of a prayer meeting. Surely the true patriot must have felt that the surety for the continued existence and wholesome working of our free institutions was to be found in a gathering for prayer, rather than in the noisy demonstrations of popular feeling wUh which most seem to feel that tie day is properly celebrated.
