li THE trSE OF A _SEEMOHi -l never"r—said an eminent living preacher to us once in conversation—**I never allow myself to think of a sermon as an end. It is a mere tool. What's the use of a man's grinding and polishing his axe all day long, without once remembering that it was made to cut f Then spreading the palm of one hand, and tracing lines upon it with the forefinger of the other, he continued—"When an engraver is at work on a steel plate—though he reaches out his hand now after atool for a fine line, then after a tool for a coarse one —he keeps his eye always on thetoorki What does he care for the tools?

OUR STATISTICS. The statistics of our Church for the last year hive furnished the ground for some gratifying deductions, especially in regard to the Synod of Pennsylvania, which we have exhibited in these columns. Without intending any disparagement to other Synods, for we are all members one of a noth e r , we have shown that the growth of the Synod of Pennsylvania, within the last four years, has exoeeded any other Synod east of the Alleghcnies; in other words, of any Synod depending upon the ordinary means of growth, and receiving no increase by im m i gration. This statement cannot fee discredited by referring to the Synod of New York and New Jersey whose increase in the came period has been some 700 greater than that of our Synod, for the former Synod four years ago, was between twice and thrice as large as the Synod of Pennsylvania, and ought to have gained more than twice (instead of less than one and a half) aa much, in order to make its growth equal to that of the l...

THE SLAVE TRADE.—INTERFERENCE DEMANDED. There are some evil practices so shocking to the moral sense of mankind, so fraught with injury, and yet, on account of their lucrative character, so obstinately persisted in, that they demand summary and extraordinary measures for their removal.

FIFTEEN HUNDRED NEW SUBSCRIBERS WANTED. While our paper has received and is daily receiving various tokens of interest and favorable regard, it is nevertheless a cherished purpose with us still further to enlarge its sphere of influence in the church. We feel that so far as we succeed in this aim, we shall be accomplishing a good work for the church, as well as for ourselves. We are firmly convinced, and we say it without undue self-esteem, that our paper is calculated to do good in acquainting ministers and church members with the condition and movements of our chureh, and in stirring up and nourishing their feelings of affection and intelligent preference for it; and in ( jj j 'j presenting and urging upon their regard, such topics of thought as are calculated to promote personal piety and to cultivate enlarged and liberal Christian views, and in keeping them informed both of the leading facts that are taking place, and of the leading ideas which are at work in the church ...
