From the American Messenger. Ttte Two SMents. . "'' During the period of a gracious , outpouring of the Spirit, with which the N —- "Sr—--—- Institution was blessed, a number of students in. both the male and female departments were enabled to exercise saving faith, and to Consecrate themselves to the service of the living Redeemer. Some of these converts are now _preaching the G-ospel at home, and others are witnesses for Christ on heathen shores. Several of the young men," in the midsttof' the general in terest, remained unaffected, and for these intense anxiety was felt by the teachers and their fellow 4tiidents. They were made thesubjects of _speial prayer, and in Onfe of the rooms of the Institution these earnest disciples metjland wrestled hour after hour before God fbri th,e conversion oflf their -companions.

Beading lie Bible. • "People May _lalk much about the _import _stance of gymnastic exercise to physical .health, but unless they take nutritious food, and are regular at nieals} their gymnastics will prove of little service. And Christians may lay broad plans for evangelizing the world arid infusing new energy into the Church, but unless they are regular in reading the Word of God, and taking liberal supplies of its milk and strong meat, they cannot beepme good soldiers of Jesus Christ. The dhristian Intelligencer gays: A writer- complains that Christians, as a general thing, read the Bible so scantity, instancing a church'-officer who, for years together? limited himself to a chapter a day."- He is right. This is small measure -for one who wants to thrive in the Divine life.

Gems from _Kieaard Cecil. BORN 1748, DIED 1810. 1. The most likely method we can take to hasten the removal of what we loteis, to value it too much; to think on it with endless anxiety; to live on its favor with solicitude. It shall soon either become a th'orfl in our f&de, or be taken away. 2. What an oppressive burden is taken off a Christian's shoulders by his privilege of leaving all consequences,- while in the path of duty, to God t He has done with " How shall I bear this, trouble ?'_? " How shall I remove this difficulty ?" « How shall I get through this ."Beep water?" but leaves himself in the harid of God. ) ; , 3. A Christian will find his parentheses for prayer, even through his busiest hours. 4.

POWER OP SURROUNDING INpUENCIS In the last number of that able paper, The Episcopal Recorder* it is remarked that " there are certain kinds of earth which strike up their hues into the plants that grow from them, so that here the rich and dark olive of the leaf, there its emerald brilliancy, betoken the chemical properties from which they draw their nourishment." An illustration is then given in the recent history of the late Professors in the Episcopal Theological Seminary at Alexandria, Va. Dntil within the last year, this was the successful and cherished institution of the Low Church Episcopalians, not only of Virginia, but also of Pennsylvania and the other Middle States. Its type _oi. _theology was considered eminently, orthodox, and its piety was of the most evangelical order. But, as is well known, the Seminary has been closed for months, and it is how in the occupancy of armed men.: Professors and students are widely dispersed. :; But the course of, these Professor...

HABEAS CURPUS The frequency with which these words occur, and the great national importance belonging, just now, to the thing which they signify, may demand the prominence which we assign them when we place them at the. head of an article. Habeas Corpus is the law title of a writ, of which there are several kinds. The one commonly indicated by present use, is the Writ: Habeas corpus ad subjiciendwm It is issued to bring a person or party before a Court or judge, to inquire into the cause of his imprisonment or detention. The object is to prevent any unjust or illegal control over personal liberty. It was established in England , by an ac_,t of Parliament during the reign of Charles II., and has been adopted, with but little variation, in the United States. In the Constitution, there is provision made for its suspension; Article X, Sec. 9: 2, reads thus: f' The privilege of the writ of habeas corpus shall not be suspended, unless when, in cases of rebellion, or invasion, th...

TD1 BIBLE WITHOUT TOE OR COMMENT The Bible Societies of England and the United States , early adopted the p lan of circulating the Scriptures in the simple text; and they have continued in that plan. They thus effect united action on the part of nearly all the Protestant Churches. Latterly a portion of tho Baptist Church has withdrawn, because "they dislike the transfer, as in the Common English Bible, of the word baptism. A few of the Episcopalians have objected, all along, to the plan of the Societies; insisting that the Prayer Book of their Church_, must always accompany the Bible. The Episcopal Recorder well sets them ofly-in. a recent number. It says: "Those who object to sending put the Bible without comment, forget that still stronger objections exist to sending out the Prayer Book. If the Bible is capable, sometimes, of a double interpretation, the Prayer Book is sjbill more so. Independently of the fact that the Gorham ease judicially established the fact that a mar...

REVIVALS It has not been our privilege to record many revivak during the last year. The state of the country has been such that men's minds have been taken up with some .thing else, or rather many other things. And here probably the Church has been in error. Ministers and Christians supposed that there could be no revivals, and there fore neither labored nor prayed for them. But here and there God is rebuking our «nbelief by pouring out his Spirit, reviving his, people and converting, sinners to himself. Let us not limit the grace of God any longer to time and a condition of the world deeraed favorable by us for the progress vttf the work of the Lord.

CIRCULATING THE BIBLE No Christian or philanthropist can view the means now, in operation for spreading abroad the knowledge of the truth, through the distribution of the Word of God, without feelings of lively and thankful emotion. Formerly the Bible was a very rare book. Great labor and much time were required for the production of a single copy\ and the cost was so much that many were unable to purchase. In nothing else has the art of printing been so beneficial. The Bible is now printed with the greatest rapidity, and m 80 many languages as to meet the wants of all the principal nations of the earthy while the expense is so small that the poorest .may purchase, and the rich, make large donations of the Holy Scriptures every year. This blessed seed sown all over the world will sooner or later spring lip_, and bring forth much fruit.

Our _Eiropeafl Correspondent, this week, almost excels himself. His remarks on the death of the Prince Consort, and relative to the Queen and the Royal family, are patriotic, emotional, and evangelical. His notice of the views and feelings of the Christian middle classes of England, who deprecate a war with the United States, willbe sead with deep interest, and will tend to soothe the excited emotions of our people. The London 2_%nes, and other party political journals, are no more the.people of England, than the New-York Herald, Tribune} &c, are the people of the United States. There is an aristocracy in England which _Itates our Democratic institutions _j and there is a radical party in this country which is equally hostile to the ruling class in England. But the substantial masses—the Christian people—of both countries, •desire to live in love and peace.

THE WEEK OF PRAYER Meetings were held in all our churches and also in all the churches of the other branch of the Presbyterian Church, in this city.and Allegheny. And we Believe that suck was the case in most of the Presbyterian churches in the nei ghboring country. The attendance was measurably good, and a good degree of earnestness was manifested. May the Lord hear the prayers .that went up to the Mercy-seat and send down upon us and upon all his churches the blessings of his grace. :..,. Surely this is a time to go to Grod—to plead with Mm-—confessing our sins and imploring his forgiveness. Let every Christian forsake sin, cleave unto the Lord, and entreat his favor.

in Educational Power. "We have long been persuaded that the community in general have no adequate conception of the amount of valuable matter contained in the columns of a good religious paper. In every number there are articles, a thorough perusal of which will make any one more familiar with the subject of which they treat, than ninety-nine hundredths of the people he meets. As an educational power in the family, the religious newspaper should be made more of than it is. What if parents at the close of the Sabbath should just try the experiment of questioning their children, to see how much they could recellect of what the paper contains. A friend abundantly able to make such an estimate, has just handed us a calculation of the amount of reading in fifty-two numbers of the Christian_^Seruld. Here are the figures : " One _vohl«M of your paper contains about 16 volumeU of 400 pages each, such as sell at $1.25 a volume, or for all, $20."— Christian Herald
