AH APT _ILLXTSTEATIOBT. wen Known tuougnt very unfair to influence a child's mind by inculcating any. opinions before it should come to years of discretion, so as to be able to choose for itself. In reply to this absurd notion , Coleridge says: "I showed him my garden, and told him it was my botanical garden." "How so," said he, "it is covered with weeds." "O," I replied,"that is because it has not yet come to its age of discretion and choice. The weeds, you see,* have taken the liberty to grow, and I thought, it unfair in me to prejudice the soil toward roses and strawberries." . ' . ¦* . ' ¦; " . ¦' .. .. ' .

Ere first, in Eden's sinless bowers, A song of _praise was given, The _peans of thy mighty harp Broke on the ears of heaven; And down the ages all _alutig, In depths of solitude, thy song Amid these fadeless forests rung, At midnight, morn, and even.

JNEW USE of the Magnet,—A Farisian physician has been making successful use of the magnet in discovering foreign substances, such as shell-splinters, fragments of needfes, &c, in the organs of the body. He hangs the magnet on a string, and on its becomiDg _immobilej he brings one of the poles near the region where he siipposes the foreign body may be lodged; the deviation or immobility of the magnet confirms or destroys his suspicion. In this this way he was able to point ou-t the precise locality in the left forearm of a voltigeur where a shell-splinter had lodged, and which'produced a serious oedema of the whole member, lasting for over ten months} but in four, days after the extraction of the foreign substance by, this means, he was quite cured. ¦ - m m .

POSITION AND-MJSSIOff OF OUR CHURCH. FROM THE MODERATOR'S SERMON. ' The American Presbyterian Cliurch rapidly struck its roots deep into our soil, and spread its branches far abroad. It grew not only from within , and by conversions from the world, but by large accretions from two dissimilar quarters : from the partially Presbyteriaiiized communities of New England, and from tlie more rigid Presbyterian communions abroad, .which had felt the stiffening and _deteriorating influeuce of the overshadowing cliurch establishments. The rapid incorporation into our body of such diverse elements_, as mijrht naturally have been expected, gave rise to questions of difference, which would never have sprung up had the Church _Tjeen enlarged only by development from within and conversions from without. God had a, purpose to achieve in the union of the three classes of elements which ¦wei'e brouirht together in _,the progress of our Olvurcb.. _ In' the days .of our .early weakness it would not...

THE ACCURACY OF THE BIBLE. An astonishing feature of the word of God is, ? notwithstanding the time at which its compositions were written, and the multitude of the topics to which it alludes, there is not one physical error—not one assertion or allusion disproved b y the progress of modern science. None of those mistakes which, the science of each succeeding age discovered in the books of the preceding: above all, none of those absurdities which modern astronomy indicates in such great numbers in the writings of the ancients j in their gacred codes; in their pnllosopiiyj-aTrd'Xlte-fiiieBt-pagBs-Tjf tiie" lathers of the church; _none of these errors are to be found in any of our books. Nothing there will ever contradict that which, after so many ages, the investigations of the learned world have been able to reveal to us on the state" of our globe, or that of the heavens. Peruse with care our Scriptures from one end to the other, to find there such spots, and , whilst you apply yo...

Thou dread ambassador from eirth to Heaven, Great Hierarch, teUlhou the _silenTsky, " And tell; the stars, and tell yon rising sun, Earth with her thousand voices, praises God." All the time we were in Westminster, we were on the mount , both literally and figuratively. Wherever we rode, although. wet crossed some streams, and plunged into some ravines, yet the streams were mountain torrents , and the ravines were mountain, gorges. Moreover, all things among these mountains, the stately towns and settlements of nature themselves, their magnificent forest-robes, their deep dark glens , their rushing and roaring cataracts, their apparent union of earth and sky, as they stretch upward from the abodes of men, and bury their summits in, the heavens—all things here have a,; tendency, to promote the soul's elevation and _transfiguration. O that-we might all be thus transfigured—that we might be changed in respect to our _earthward tendencies—that we might oftener dwell in the mount, and ...
