and Father of all. who is above all and through all and in you all." Ephcsi- ans iv. 1-6. This is a divine argument for unity among Christians and for harmony in the Church'! And it was addressed fo Christians by the Apostle and recorded for their instruction. We have quoted but a small part of it just as a specimen in order to imite atten- tion to it. Were Paul sent on a mission to the churches of our age and country he probably would insist on the very argu- ment contained in this portion of Scrip- ture. To revive true religion and pro- mote the advancement ofthe church he would fervently beseech every minister and member to cherish and manifest tlip spirit of lowliness and meekness and loing forbearance and unity which he would urge and commend by direct- ing the attention of all to the glories of that Divine Unity which the church should hold up before the world : "O.ne Bmv-On-e Srrerr Oxe Lobd-One-Faitu 0e U ii-risM One Gon anb Father or .ux." who dwells in ever- true member of...

The condition of the sailor is peculiar. Their treatment is behind the spirit of the age. Jhe customs of the sea have felt less Vic influences of the land. They are still controlled by the officers of vessels much like journeymen mechan- ics and apprentices were two hundred years ago; no appeals are made to their self-respect ; their orders are arbitrari- ly given ; and their avocation leads them from the civilities and sympathies of social life. They are entitled to the sympathies of Christian nations and to continued efforts in their behalf. Free School. There will be an exam ination of this school on next Saturday at 1 o'clock.

Thus the State is at the great expense of sustain- 1 ingthe Normal School and no adequate advantages result. Hold out the pro- per inducements to teachers and the Normal School will sustain itself. Young men w ill attend them and pay their own expenses as others do who frequent the schools of Law and Medi- cine. Debar the Common School mas- ter of a just dividend of the public mon- ey as recommended in this No. and No. IL and the State will be at double the expense if they introduce anything like a proper plan of public instruction. Some at first glance might think that the free list money this quota of public money and the fees of those who are able to pay would be too mach for the teacher.

It would seem that a thing so monstrous. so unheard of could not happen in this age of Christian privilege and among a people "exalted to heaven" in point of Christian privilege. It has long been known that it was the settled policy of our government in carrying on war with Mexico not to grossly violate the religious sense of that people by giving up the Romish church and its wealth. to the sacrcligious plundering of our army. But who ever dreamed that the government or those sent to...

Improper motives may prompt to public duties while those duties which escape men's eyes and arc in- tended only for God's observation arc not likely to be practised by an unre- newed person. There is more piety in the devotion of Nathaniel when hebow- rd alone beneath the fig tree than in all the ostentatious prayers of the phylactery-adorned Pharisee at corners of the streets. The poor widow who mo- destly cast into the treasury her hard- earned mite. Rave greater evidence of piety than did the wealthy Jew whose golden coins rattled their own praise as they Ml into the chest.

Enough has been said already. Let the one and the other ponder well upon it and the result is certain. There is perhaps no individual pres- ent of mature years who has not upon the bare mention fresh in his memory the recollection of some scene of misery or blood which but for the maddening influence 'of alcohol had disgraced the history of man. I myself have seen the arm of man thus nerved plunge to the heart of his brother the deadly knife and recking hot from the fountain oflife wave it o'er his head with the shout of a fiend in exultation of the ruin he had wrought. I have known the mother and her helpless children stripped of the very necessaries of life and reduced to all the miseries of want.

) The idea that a "long array" of Profes sors is necessary to give Collegiate ed ucation is preposterous. It must be dis carded if the march of mind is to be "on- ' ward." The members of the Literary Association are ready to prove that a complete course of Academic and Colic- giate education can be obtained in Acade mics of this description. The plan of popular education proposed" in these Mo is of such a character that it could go into immediate operation even were there no 1'umU in the treasury. All the Legislature xv ould hav e to dn would be to adopt the system and ordain it to go into eliect. and that when a public fund was accumulated it would be applied according to the tenor of the law.
