ORIGIN OF IMMERSION. u But how came immersion into nse at so early a period, if it wast not the Apostolic mode?" The answer is not difficult. A very large proportion of the first converts to Christianity were Jews, many of whom retained a strong attachment to the Mosaic ritual.—See Acts xv. That ritual .comprehended , f divers washings," which seem to be referred to in Heb. vi: 2, where the sacred writer specifies " the doctrine of baptisms," as one of the subjects of dispute among the Hebrew converts. They were, moreover, familiar with the custom of the Jewish Church, to require the proselytes maxims of antiquity, and receded farther from the example of the \Apostles than any class of Christians on record."—Hall on Com., p. 74, 75. from Paganism to be thoroughly washed, previously to being circumcised. With all their violent prejudice in favor of the ancient ritual, it is not surprising that in some churches, where their influence was paramountthey should insist that the conv...

V For the Presbyterian Banner and Advocate, [ Baptism.—No. 11. |* " ONE BAPTISM." m Eph. iv: 3—5, St. Paul writes thus: I Endeavoring to keep the unity of the tit in the bond of peace. There is one ly and one spirit, even as ye ate called in 9 hope of your calling j one Lord, one th, one baptism." the Baptist brethren assume that the iostle is here speaking of water-baptism, 1 that his meaning is, " One Lord, one kh. one dipping." But this is begging Kquestioa. We have already shown that ipture baptism does not at all imply dipk. " But," say they, " as there is otte _KisuD, then, if immersion is right, pour-|or sprinkling is wrong, and is no bap i." I answer, so might the Dunker hren say, "if we are right in dipping e times, then dipping but once is wrong, is no baptism at all." So might Episilians say, " there is but one Church of 1st, and if we are right in having dion bishops, thc$e who are without them wrong, and are no Church of Christ." light the Roman Catholics say, " the...

is of the flesh, for we are conceived in sin, and shapen in iriiquity.—Ps. li: 5. Hence, we; go astray as soon as we are born: and hence, the whole' race is corrupt; and all need'the washing of regeneration. This is expressively taught in the 14th Psalm, where it is written, They are corrupt; they have done abominable works; there is none ihat doeth good. The Lord looked: down from heaven upon the children of menj to see if there were -any that did understand, and seek God. They are all gone aside; they are all together become filthy; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.-—Ps. xiv: 1—8. Observe here the scrutiny The Lord looked down to see. Observe the general survey, The Lord looked upon the children of men, to see if any did understand. And observe the result; he found none; they are all gone aside; there is none that doeth good, no, not one ! All are sinners; and this general corruption is a proof of native depravity—of a nature depraved ; and hence the necessity of the...

Ye must be born again.—John in.: 7. My Dear OFriend:—My last letter introduced the necesfiity of: regeneration. In this, I promised to give some of the reasons of this necessity. One of themhag_:already been hinted; and* it is given by the Saviour himself, in his conversation with Nicodemus, as recorded in John iii: 1—12 It is because we are by nature, or the first birth, sinners; that which is born of the flesh is flesh'; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, ye must be born again.—John iii: 6, 7. To be born of the Spirit, is to be born again, regenerated; and this is necessary, because that which is born of the flesh, or according to nature, is flesh, is depraved, sinful. Hence, it is written, They that are in the flesh, unrenewed, cannot pleas...

Our Young Men—Their Dangers—Their _Barents. Great importance has always been attached to the proper training.up,of young men _^vto the formation of their characters, and to the influence they are destined to exert. The propriety of this is recognized in both the Old and jtfevr Testaments, in every well regulated Government, and in every feasible project for the improvement of mankind. That our/young mpn should be intelligent, upright, honorable, and pure, is demanded by the necessities of social life, and by all the requirements of enlarged and successful enterprise. And the well-being of society, the stability of the State, and the permanence and growth of the Church, together with every humane and Christian scheme for the alleviation and removal of the miseries of men, are deeply involved in the moral and religious character they will bear. It is readily admitted that our young men are exposed to many and momentous perils from the native depravity of their own hearts, from u...

The Troubles at Canton, China. Through the kindness of ourfriend,Rev. Dr. Happer, of the 1 Canton Mission, but now in this city, we are enabled to present to our readers an account of Chinese affairs, more graphic and accurate by far, than we could have done by our own unaided reading of the public journals. _, Full accounts of events at Canton have been received to January 15fch, and telegraphic dispatches to ' January 30th. The following details have been carefully compiled from the 'British papers, from local newspapers received from Hong-Kong/ and from private letters. ' After the bombardment of the residence of the Chinese Governor General on the 28th and 29th of October, and the subsequent taking and dismantling of all the forts on the Canton river, from its mouth to the city, the British Admiral took up his quarters in the residence of a British merchant, intending notto proceed/to ' further aggressive measures, but to hold his position,'pending instructions from the Brit...

Eastern Summary NEW ENGLAND IN GENERAL. Notwithstanding the fluctuations arid many changes of opinion, and the fiercer excitement of politics, the descendants of the Puritans not only observe their time-honored custom of the Annual _Thanksgiving, but also the no less ancient or necessary annual day of humiliation,1 fasting, and prayer. The Governors of 'Vermont and Maine have issued their proclamations for the latter observance ; in the first-mentioned State it will be on the 12th of April, and in the second on the _*tft>th. ¦ " It is mentioned as evidence of an Inckbaseb Religious Feeiih g in Maine, that in many instances social parties and accidental gatherings are, by common consent, converted into prayer meetings. The revival in the State prison of Rhode Island still continues; it has now been in progress for six months. The result has been the hopeful conversion of twenty five, including all the member? of the Bible Classes taught by the Rev. Dr. Wayland and Rev. M...

Infant Baptism. Rev. John M'Donald, Missionary of the Free Church, at Calcutta, and formerly _minifiteran London, thus writes in his Diary, on the subject of* Infant Baptism, in connexion with the dedication of his first child : " Ob, -what a privilege is it! I trust I have had communion with the Lord in this deed, if ever I had it. Many encouragements have I had, and no misgivings as to infant baptism in its faithful form. Yea, I praise God for such an ordinance. I know God's willingness to bless infants. I know that he did of old receive them into covenant by seal; I know, also, that infants are capable of enjoying the covenant of grace, and that the want of faith in those who are incapable of faith, is just as applicable to salvation as to baptism, and therefore constitutes no argument against it. " I believe that the seal of the covenant will be just as valid to the child when it afterwards believes, as if baptized when adulr—that it is a great privilege to have it externall...

Mission at Wapanucka, Creek Nation. We have a letter from Mies M. C. Greenleaf, of this Mission; not dhected to us for publication, but an extract from which we venture to lay before our readers. It presents to us the efforts of our Board toward the civilizing, as well as the Christianizing, of the Indians—labors tending to their present comfort, as well as their future joy —-. a wise care for those things which tend to the perpetuity of the race, as well as for what belongs to the immortal, happy existence of the individual. It is in view of the civil and social influence of the Missions among the Indians, that Government contributes to their _sustentation.

Our Associate brethren carry the date of their Seminary back far beyond our own history in that line. In 1778, the Rev. John Smith was the authorized teacher of Theology for the body.; The measure was, however, discontinued in 1782; but it was resuscitated in 1794, when Rev! John.
