Why So Backward?—A Response. . Backwardness in relieving those who have suffered under calamitous dispensations of Providence, we have noticed as a feature quite too prominent in Christians; and we have thought it to be more painfully manifest in our own people than even in some others. The duty of, affording relief is admitted _,to be most incumbent upon those who live near to, and those acquainted with, the sufferers. Such ought certainly and speedily to make up the loss, or to replace it so far as to make the afflicted comfortable; and if their ability is not equal to _>the emergency, they should so make known the facts of the case as to procure relief from a distance. The case of the losses of brethren of the Canton. Mission, is one which demands general sympathy and aid.; and doubtless the Board-will receive extra supplies adequate to their restoration. But even there, ' there were individual sufferings. The brethren were - robbed, by the devouring flames, of books, ...

Labor and Compensation. That the- laborer, is worthy of his hire, is a Scriptural decree, as well as a dictate of common sense. On principles of equity, every man who labors, has his just claim upon those who derive the benefit of his knowledge, skill and toil; and, in a measure corresponding with the cost to him and the good to them. Let this principle, the enunciation of which surely meets with an affirmative response in every breast, be applied to the services of the ministry, and what will be the result ? Can it be said that the custom ary stipend is any thing like a remuneration ? We propose the question, and to aid in its solution, we add a brief extract from remarks of Rev. Dr. Alexander, of Edinburgh : In speaking on the subject assigned him, viz., ministerial support, Dr. Alexander said—I am ready, without any beating about the bush, to say we are all underpaid for what we do. I was talking lately with a'London business man—a successful merchant. He said to me, "And if ...

Revival Cincinnati.—The Central church in Cincinnati, under the pastoral care of Rev. N. W_^ st, has been enjoying a precious reviving: time. At a recent communion, sixteen members were received on examination, and eleven on certificate. The next week, four young men applied, and were received to membership. Some eig ht or ten others are inquirers. A private letter, speaking gratefully of God's grace to pastor and people, says : "One of the most cheering features of the whole work is, that many of the members of the church have really been revived. The church has been ' sanctified. The unction is still upon them. They pray for perishing souls." Christians, alas, in most of our churches, greatly need the reviving influences of God's Spirit. It is vigorous life in the Church, which God,makes the means of new life _;to men dead in .tres passes and sins. ¦> When drowsy Christians are truly awaked, a work will be done for Christ amongst the 'previously unconverted.

Liberia. We see, in the-Hollidaysburg Register, a letter from Charles Deputie, dated Marshall, Liberia, March; 4, 1857. The writer notes progress and-prospects, and also tells of some of the difficulties, necessarily incident to new settlements. * Toward the conclusion he savs :J "Tell Mr. Coplin'for me, that I don't want his assistance. I have wheat flour, sugar, coffee to1 drink, from, my own lot, good milk to -put into it, dig my own potatoes, and have good, lively boys to catch oysters to boot." Mr. Deputie is a Christian and a worthy man., He will let his light shine for benefit, we trust, among both emigrants, and natives ; and we shall hope to hear of his "boys" growing to be great and good men.
