THE SIMPLICITY OP THE BIBLE. The fact that God gave a revelation, not for the learned, but for all classes of men; not fon|| any one age or nation, but for all ages and all nations; proves, that that revelation may be understood, at least as to its direct teaching, without the aid of human science. It is an instructive fact, that the Gospel was understood, and did achieve its most signal triumphs, at periods when every existing system of philosophy was fundamentally erroneous. The entire history of the Church in all ages, and in the present, sustains me in the assertion—that the Gospel has lost its power over the human conscience and heart, precisely in the degree in which there has been departure from the obvious meaning of the language of the Bible, to accommodate its teaching to any science or system of philosophy. The history of the Church furnishes not a solitary exception to this general statement; indeedone of the most convincing proofs of the inspiration of the Scriptures ...

A FALLEN WORLD. Three months: ago a daily,paper ' was started in New York city, which enlisted the deep interest of the moral and religious part of the community, and which excited great hopes of a revolution in newspaper morals. Wearied ou> and disgusted with the open league which the daily press in that, and other . leading cities, had made with the depraved and morbid tastes of their readers, the better portion of the community hailed the appear* ance of a sheet _whidh promised to be alike valuable in the counting-room, and acceptable in the family. The large, sum of money invested, : and-the great outlay ventured upon, to secure the first cWss of editorial talent and experience in the management, gave its friends not a little solicitude for its success, and great was th_% gratification to find itscir-1 culation speedily up to thirty-five thousand_^ daily. We cheerfully and unreservedly commended the enterprise in bur columns, and have had the daily on our exchanges, and...

SEPTEMBER A CRITICAL MONTH Looking over the files of-toe American Presbyterian a few daxa ago, our attention was arrested by an editorial of September, 1856, in which the sentiment is advanced, that the present is a critical month with the churches. From the symptoms now exhibited it is argued, wS inay forecast, with ioler_^lfldSrliainty, their _Spiritual condition during the _wSoIe working season _^ Whatever may: be thought of this assertion, it Is very cheering to behold indications of spiritual animation or even of expectancy in the churches at tb is period.

THE PAPACY. We read in the last and latest news by steamer and telegraph from Naples, that Garibaldi and his forces were at Salerno, a town on the gulf of the same name, immediately below the indentation in the Italian coast, called the Gulf of Naples, and but about twenty-five or thirty miles south of the capital city itself. Their immediate arrival at Naples was confidently expected, and the King of Naples was to leave the same day for Gaeta. The fate of the odious, obstinate, and detestable tyrant, Bombina, is, doubtless, settled, and his own and his father's fearful crimes, are, in some measure, atoned for. The European circle of crowned heads, look on at this* inroad upon their titled estate, without lifting a finger. The sentiment of humanity and justice is at last stronger than kingly prerogative, and young Francis Joseph may regard himself as fortunate beyond his deserts, if he can but sink into the same ignominious obscurity with the persecuting dukes, summarily thrown ov...

BEARING TESTIMONY. The following remarks from the Christian Instructor of this week, bear upon an important practical point, and are commended to the consideration of our lay readers. _: .

PAINE'S DEATH-BED REPENTANCE AND CONFESSION. From the life of a distinguished and godly Quaker preacher, Stephen Grellet, lately published, we make the following extract. It may be new to our readers, as it certainly was to us, that Paine so distinctly disavowed and repudited his infidel opinions and doings upon his death-bed, as would appear from the testimony of a reliable eye-witness. Tha extract is from the gen of Stephen Grellet himself: - — "I iriay not omit recording here the death of Thomas Paine. A few days previous to my leaving _^ home, on my last religious visit, on hearing that he was ill, and in a very destitute conditional went to see him, and found Kim in a wretched state, for he had been so neglected _aad forsaken by his pretended friends that the common attentions to a sick man had been denied to him.
