For the Presbyterian Banner and Advocate. The Baptism by Philip. Mr. Editor :—I have been delighted with the articles of your' correspondent, "L. N. D ," on the subject 'of baptism. By reason of an unusual pressure of engagements, J have not been ,able to read them all. .There is one point .which, if treated of in the series, h&s escaped my notice. It might make a section under the caption, SCRIPTURAL BAPTISM NOT IMMERSION. Immersionists dwell upon the baptism of the Ethiopian eunuch. Notwithstanding the conclusive argument of " L N D."on the Scripture record, let U3 suppose, for a moment, that J{ into the water," meansu _, under the water. " Then the immersion is not of the subject of baptism only, but also of the person who administers the ordinance. The evangelist is very explicit in his statement, and repeats it that there might; be no mistake, " and'they went down both into the water; both Philip and the/eunuch;" just as certainly as one went under the water, so cer...

The Discussions on Inspiration-—Their Cause—How we may be Safe. The ocean is never at rest, and in this respect 4t_,is_>-an emblem, of the<i ceaseless revolutions and movements of the human mind. These changes occur in the Church, as well as in other associations and combinations of men. Many of them are caused by the speculative tendencies of parties within the pale of the Church, who promulgate some false doctrine, which, when matured, turns out to be a formidable heresy. Others, as in the early centuries of the Church's history, on professing Christianity, have brought with them some dregs or remnants of the system which they were supposed to have abandoned; and ere long such men, or their disciples, are found to be the heads of parties, and the founders of sects and questionable opinions. In our own ' day, we have abundant evidence of the fact that this condition of affairs continues to exist. The publications which have been issuing from the press, on the su...

The Mormons, and the Government. One of the hard questions to be disci i ssed acd settled is, What _thall be done wiih the Mormons and Mormonism? Christians are sendiDg the Bible to Utah, and would cheerfully send and sustain Missionaries. But the civil rule is such, that Missionaries, though American citizens, would be utterly unsafe. Even the agents of the United States Government, who are not Mormons, are unsafe —powerless as to the discharge of their official functions, in danger as' to their persons, and obliged to leave the Territory. Utah is arranging to become a State. Shall we have, as a member of a confederacy of Christian States, one where the moral law is violated, on principle and in general practice? We.trust not. We trust ihat this Christian people will never tolerate polygamy. What shall our General Government do ? Judge Drummond has resigned. The United States laws cannot be executed. We see it stated that a strong military force is to be sent to Utah, officered...

Pastoral Re signationsr-Rev. Ross Stevenson. The resignation of a pastoral charge is no light matter. Frequent changes are to be greatly deprecated. Ministers arc, we fear, much at fault in this; and congregations are, probably, still more culpable. This remark we make, while we maintain that the pastor is entitled, in all honesty, to a comfortable support; and the people 'have, as fairly, a right to a good supply of spiritual food. Ilj is also a truth, that the whole Church has a full right to the services of all her sons, and to their location in portions of her field to which they are best adapted. Jesus Christ may both call and send. It is his prerogative, and he exercises it. Sometimes he points to a new field of labor, by a direct call, issued by a church. Sometimes he stirs up the nest, makes the servant uncomfortable, withholds adequate sustenance, and thus sends him off to seek his proper place for labor. " We have great faith in the leadings of Providence. But let pr...
