THE _mtiEL ' PRA_^iR_^_iETllrG. It" began punctually at the _^ _, moment. As the clock struck eigttt, the leader rose and sounded the reveille by giving out the inspiring lines— " Come, my soul, thy suit prepare, " Jesus loVes to answer prayer. " , _^ A sweet symphony was touched on a piano in one of the crowded rooms, and then the words of the hymn were sent heavenward on a full tide of united and enthusiastic song. . ¦ Every voice chimed in. Each verse was sung with more spirit than its predecessor, marking the outcome of the rising devotion; and like a strong " oft-shore" breeze the opening chant of praise carried the whole meeting out of haTbor into the larger liberty and deep waters of the open sea. Then the leader evoked the, descent of the Holy Ghost, the-gift of utterance and the Pentecostal baptism.- It was a very short prayer, " . but very full. He prayed for the' gift of prayer upon'all,' for _honesty of speech, for deliverance from dead formalities, for sincerity...

SHALL I DANCE? BY REV. JOSEPH F. TU3TLE. It is a fact that a vast multitude of that sort of Christians who compose the working forces of the church, do _condemn this amusement, as exerting a most disastrous influence on the piety of religions professors and the anxieties of the unconverted. Thus, Edwards of Northampton, speaks in the most ,decided terms of the irreligious influence of " Conventions of both sexes for mirth and jollity, which they call frolics. " A main feature in these frolics was promiscuous dancing. The Rev. Albert Barnes says that "dancing, balls, and parties, . . . lead to forgetfnlness of God. They nourish passion and sensual desires. They often lead to the seduction and ruin of the innocent. They are tinfit for dying creatures. " "No one ever has maintained, or can maintain, that dancing is, or _caii be/ a means of grace; that it tends to prepare the mind for prayer, for a more thoughtful'searching of the Bible, for a closer attention to the preaching of ...

For the American Presbyterian. THE HAPPINESS OF HEAVEN. In the "New Jerusalem" above, all jarring interests, all discordant passions are unknown. None but the sons of peace shall enter there. None shall strive nor cry; neither shall any one lift up his voice in the streets. Brethren shall dwell together in unity—all will be of one heart and one mind. Nor will it be a small part of our happiness, to see there face to face the illustrious dead whose praise is recorded in Scripture,—Patriarchs, Prophets and Apostles, all who have ' walked with God on earth, or suffered for the testimony of Jesus. To see there, perhaps, the very man who, by his writings or preaching, converted us from the path of sin; who, by his holy example or his faithful reproofs, snatched us _^ as brands out of the _burning. And amongst the multitude which no man can number, what joyful meetings, what blessed re-unions will there be, Between those who were bound to one another upon earth, as friends of God,...

It may be interesting to some of your, readers to learn that the Scotch Highlanders were among the first settlers of the State of North Carolina. The majority of them were from the Hebrides, from Islay_^ Jura, MullColl and Skye, and not a few from the mainland .of Argyll. The precise date of the landing of the first Scottish emigrants in the Carolinas cannot be well ascertained. It appears that Scotch families were settled on the Cape Fear ltiver previous to the division' of the province into North and South Carolina in 1729. Some time between 1744 and 1746 a Highlander, named Niel Macniel, from Argyllshire,, visited., North Carolina. He returned to _Scotland in 1748, and in the following year landed in Wilmington, North: Carolina , with his family and about 800 emigrants (some say, 600)...

_AKPUCTIOK. . The Christian under affliction is especially called to meditate upon the place that afflictions oeeupy in the plan of divine redemption, in the development of the reign of God upon the earth, and ia the _revelations of the Holy Scriptures. It is then that he _untlerstands the meaning of that passage, so simple and so profound, " Think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to . try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you/' But it would be extraordinary if we could be ripened for eternal life, and more particularly if a servant of Qod should see his labors blest, I do not say withoutafliictidns , but without a large measure of affliction. "We must through much tribulation enter the kingdom of God." This doctrine is clearly revealed in Him whose sacrifice we now celebrate, since it is through His sorrows and sacrifice alone that we can obtain eternal life. The Saviour was " a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief j" not only a man of sor...

Some of your readers have in mind the facts in regard to the character of that organization, but many have not.

tfli/TON'S SONNET The following sonnet by the great epic poet of our mother tongue is invested just now with peculiar interest The persecution of the Protestants to which it refers broke out in the year 1655, a, little over two centuries ago, Looking at, the ohange which has been effected in the government and in the civil and religious polity of Piedmont within the past few years, and also at the momentous crisis now impending oyer Borne, and the Italian peninsula generally, we cannot but conclude that the day of retribution Wfy& hand, and that Milton's' prayer, as put forth in the * lines in question, is about to be answered: On the late Massacre at Piedmont. Avenge, 0 Lord, Ihy slaughtered saints, whose _oones Lie scattered oh the Alpine mountains cold; Even them who kept thy truth so pure of old, When all our fathers worshipped stocks and stones.

Truth.—Eoth the moon slay herself to lecture every dog that bayeth afe her? Doth the lion turn aside to rend each cur that barketh at him ? Do the stars cease to shine because the nightingales reprove them for their dimness? Or does the sun stop ita course because of the officious cloud which vails it? Or doth the river stay because the willow dippeth its leaves into the waters? Ah! no,—God's universe moves on, and if man will oppose it, heeds them not. It is as God hath made it: it is working together for goodand ifc shall not be stayed by the censure nor moved on by the praise of man.—Sporgeon.

Every man who wishes to establish a business must see and conterse with those whose patronage he would so* oorej its will scarcely avail to distribute reams of paper circulars if he himself stays at home. The teacher must form the acquaintance of parents if he would have their children in his school. And the politician must not only harangue the crowd at arm's length—his chances of success are almost always to be measured by the degree in which he is personally acquainted with them. Almost always the best method with a person who has offended one, is to seek an interview with him, and let explanations be given and objections answered face to face. . , The unbounded influence which. _Napoleon exercised over his soldiers, was due not only to the confidence they felt in his military genius, but ...
