Jitrattifit Influence of Mind on the Body. The influence of faitn., belief, or opinion, on the body is unquestionable. We have seen ebildreu of two, three or fotxr years of age shiver in the cold bath, because they feared, beforehand, it would be cold to them. The proof of mental influence in this case is derived from the fact, thajs when the same process in the same ciraumstances, or those which nearly resemble it, is submitted to cheerfully and without* apprehension, there Is iio shivering. ' The same truth is applicable almost everywhere in life, and in nearly all circumstances. Things are, to a very great extent, as we apprehend, them. If we expect a room will be cold at sixty degrees of Fahrenheit, it is very apt to prove so. If we expect to be fatigued with a certain kind or degree of exercise or labor, we are apt to be so; arid the contrary. So if we expect to catch: cold or any other disease—even small pox—we are very apt to find it so. On the contrary, he who does n...

^iflgragpeai; John. Bunyan, At seventeen,- Banyan enlisted in the Parliamentary army, and served during the campaign of 1645.' Then it was that his imagination became stored with those impressions of the pomp and circumstance of war, which furnished afterwards so many of his illustrations, and supplied him with his Great-heart, his Captain Boanerges, and his Captain Credence. The campaign over, he went home and married. He joined a Baptist Society at Bedford, and after a time began to preach ; yet we are tolcl it was long before he ceased to be tormented with an impulse which, urged him to utter words of horrible impiety iti the pulpit. With the Restoration there came persecution of Dissenters, and Bunyan's wellknown imprisonment in Bedford jail lasted, •nn fn enma infam TTQic1 Wit vi r%«« 4-iWir* I ¦*?¦¦¦» -n-.»**<«**-• iuuvi iiuoummfii wl tC * vv *.v* j, i^sjrAXJi\j « w»T jxSO/IO" He., was told that if he would give up preaching, he would be set free; but not even his s...

J or i\i |«|r A Word to the Boys. We cannot forbear to give the following oapital extract from a l&te speech by Sir E. Bulwer. Lyttpn, at the Bishop's-Stratford High School. After speaking of the English soldiers at the battle of Alma, he said: They did not hear the roar of the cannon, to whose very jaws they marched on with unflinching tread; they only heard the whisper at their hearts, "And if we do our duty this day, what will they say of us in England?" Ay, and when a boy sits down resolutely to Ms desks, puts aside all idle pleasure, faces every.tedious obstacle, firmly bent upon honorable distinction, it is the «** «.*« .tiA*Y«4i¥*rw aanrimant. wriiAri WnlRnflTS t,f\ Hin,."And if I succeed, what will they say of me at school ?" or a dearer motive still, "What will ;they say of me at home?"

An old sailor, who was very ragged, and whose white head spoke the Japse of many years, was leaning against a post, in conversation with another sailor. A member of the Bethel Union spoke to them, and particularly invited the old man to attend the prayer-meeting. His companion, after hearing the nature of the invitation said, " Thomas go in. Come ! come I man, go into the meeting : it won't hurt you." " Puh 1 puh I" cried the old seaman, " I should not know what to do with myself.

uvtiiiuu The People, tlieir Ministers, Tapers, and Politics. J- ' eitjcuuii uuw j j though the returns are not all in, the result cannot, be affected by any remarks of ours. A knowledge of the vote may increase the sensitiveness of one party or the other; but, as we mean no reproach, and as the political result is not to be influenced by what we shall say, we trust that the good sense of our readers will have sufficiently the ascendency to enable them to appreciate the reasonableness of our remarks. We have always been opposed to tlie idea of ministers, as they are the servants of Christ, using their official position, whether in the pulpit, in the Ecclesiastical Council, or by the press, for the accomplishing of a political end. Their Master's kingdom, in the service in which he employs them as ministers, is not of this world. They are not commissioned to dethrone, nor yet to uphold Csesar. They are to render to him his own, and to Christ his own. They are to pray for those i...
