ELEMENTS OF REV. MB. CHANDLER'S 1 •SUCCESS. OPINIONS OF THE SECULAB PRESS. No one who knew the Rev. George Chandler would hesitate a moment in saying that he was a distinguished man. By universal consent he was considered "the best man in Kensington." Of a population of perhaps a hundred thousand souls, he was the person most esteemed and loved. For nearly half a century he p'reachedin Kensington, that having been his only pastoral charge: And now full of years and rich in the love of multitudes , he is laid in his grave. As we ponder over a life like this and think tow it differs from that of the great mass of men, it becomes a matter of interest to search out the sources of its success. Perhaps, without intruding into the office of the divine, whose duty it is to deduce spiritual instruction from such a life and death , we may find something.in it which will arrest the attention of the general and casual Mr. Chandler succeeded by the plain and common sense virtue of persis...

THE_.50WER 0E THj! _PAPACY "It has elements or vast pptfer. It _appeals to human nature_, as no other religion ever appealed. It addresses the inner and the outer man with equal force and Buccess. See how it comes home to the crying wants of a human soul, and-seems to meet its unuttered longings. Here is a man- consciously guilty before God, in need of pardon and asking for peace. It has something for him. It tells him of a sacrifice for sin which has been made for him; it speaks of the Son of God dying in his behalf, and that he may be pardoned through that cross of the Redeemer. But what is more, it-tells him the,, story and presents,the means of forgiveness in such a way as falls, in .precisely with his own- pride and self-seeking. It speaks of penance , and good works, and alms-deeds, as the way in which a man may make out the price of his own salvation. While with the one breath it meets the demand of a wounded conscience asking for something abof ve.man_^ with another _|...

THE WHITE 3TQNE- « To him thatovercometh will I give a white stone."—Rev. _ii. 17. It.is generally thought by commentators that this is a reference to an ancient judicial custom, of dropping a black stone " into an urn when it is intended to condemn, and a ' white stone when the prisoner is to be acquitted; but this is an act so distinct from that described, "I will give the? a w,hitet stone," that we are disposed to agree with those who think it refers, rather, to a_'_ctfetonTof a very different kinti, and not unknown to the classical reader—according with beauti&l propriety to the case before us: In _primitive times, when travelling was rendered difficult, from want of places of public entertai nment/hospitality was exercised by private individimls ' to a very ereat extent—of which, in deed, we find frequent traces in all nistory, ana in none more than the Old,Testament.

MAKING SEEM0NSRev J. B- Simmons, a Baptist minister of Indianapolis, writing on this subject says: "First. If you have a printed book of plans and skeletons throw it into the fire. Secondly. If you, have .a blank book in which you have collected the plans of sermons you have heard other ministers preach, throw that in the fire too. ' Thirdly. If you have been in the habit of p icking your sermons_^ttp ffom scraps, and newspapers, and books, stop' it. Fourthly. If you have been in the habit of reading printed sermons a good many times: over and then attempting to preach them , stop that.

A DIFFICULTY CONSIDERED. A gentleman , on being expostulated with on his own neglect to seek earnestly the salvation of his soul, excused himself on the very common, but insufficient plea, "That the Christian world was divided into so many sects, that he should.be: at a loss to_ decide with which one to unite." The reply he received was substantially as follows :" Yoli greatly deceive yourself, if .you regard this as a satisfactory excuse for leading an irreligious life. You make that a primary whichj is only a secondary question. There are various sects which have distinguished peculiarities_^ _but there is'a great foundation—{ repentance toward God, and faith inf our Lord Jesus Christ'—-on which they are agreed. No, your first consideration should be to get a safe standing on that foundation , and then you will be able, without danger, more deliberately ' to determine with which secfc to unite.

THE _PRECHnrSipsS OF FAITH. Precious, indeed, is that faith that leans upon God in adversity, that goes to Jesus in trial,, and that repairs to the Spirit in sorrow. _Pre cious faith, that finds a promise for every condition, a helper in every emergency, a soother for every sorrow,—that can hope against hope, taste a sweet disguised in every bitter, and see a bright light veiled by each dark cloud. This is the true gold that procures all blessing, and' enriches its possessor with all good. He thatl has faith in God has every desire of his heart fulfilled. • He can dive into the treasures of God's word and say, "AH these are mine, for they are my Father's epistles of 1 ove. " He can turn to the Redeemer 's fulness and excltfim,~ "It pleased the Father that all this fulness of grace, and truth, and love, should "dwell in: Jesus for me.

Life hag a different object and aspect when the main motive in living is considered as drawn from the present or from the future; .whether we live for ourselves, or for those who are to come after us. There is a common saying in Our own tongue, expressive of the views and feelings which many have of life,: "What has posterity done for me that I should labor for its good ? " And the same idea substantially is expressed in the Greek _proverb which we have placed at the head of this article: " When I am dead, let the earth be mingled with fire ;" or, "I do not care if, _wltttt I am dead, a grand conflagration .of the .whole world should take place."* Both these modes of expression indicate substantially the same state of mind—a purpose to live for the present and for self, regardless of the bearing of our _conduct on the future, and with no feeling of obligation to benefit coming ages.

as the most blessed intelligence he had ever had to communicate. There were sixty students in the institution then, and almost all were affected by it. The next revival occurred five years later, under the presidency of Dr. Finlay. It lasted one year, and one-half of the students were brought into the church. I have taken from Dr. Sprague's Annals a list of some eighty or ninety names of great men in the religious and literary history of our conntry, who were convertedwhile in college. Among them were John Robinson; one of the puritan-fathers, President Edwards and his son-, Gordon Hall and Samuel Newell, two of our country's first foreign missionaries, Aaron Burr, Sen., Geo. Duffield, Dr. Nevin, President Dwigtit, Dr. Alexander and others. . Rev. Albert Barnes also addressed the meeting. He said: We have met to-day to pray for colleges and institutions of learning, rather than for factories, or for farms, or for mechanical institutions. Many of our colleges were founded express...

HOW AE1 THE CHILDREN OF CHRISTIAN HOMES TO BE CONVERTED? In discoursing on this topic, SabbatK before last, Rev. Dr. Smith, of the Western Presbyterian Church of this city, made the following remarks on , - PROFITABLE BEADING. The Spirit claims the Word as the channel of his power, and will not act where that agency is denied him. There must be knowledge before there can be salvation , and those who do not sow the seed, have no right to look for the harvest. And so should our children be taught to love the Bible, and to read it; not now and then, but with the frequency of their daily rising- and retiring to rest, and with the earnestness of an awakened interest and concern in its revelations. Why may not a child be attracted by this book, as well as by apy other ? The theory that it most necessarily be distasteful to the young, or even the very young, is as false as it can be. It is not to man ut any given age _^ that the Bible commends itself; but to human nature, at any an...

DAY _QF PRAYER FOR _COLpJGES. INTERESTING SERVICES. This annual service was observed at Dr. Jenkins' (Calvary) Chnrch, on Thursday morning last, February 23d. Prayers were offered by a number of the clergy, and addresses of an interesting character were delivered. Re,v. E. E. Adams referred to the eloquent remark of Pericles in regard to the loss of a number of youth—the flower of Athens—on the Samian expedition;. "It was as if Spring had been stricken out of the year." He said there are about 25,000 in our colleges and professional schools; 5,000 of them are regarded as pioas. If 20,000 are allowed to go forth unconverted, will it not be, morally speaking, as if Spring were stricken from the year ? Revr T. S. Baldwin, Secretary of the Society for the Promotion of Collegiate Education_^ being called on, remarked, that the golden age of Hebrdw poetry synchronizes with the era of the schools of the prophets. David took refuge from the persecution of Saul, at one time, in these schoo...

"CLEAR AND POSITIVE." The New York Observer is entirely mum on the Independent's new catechism. It may be that it is mentally and silently practising its voice , like the astounded parrot at the strange music of the trumpeters, that it may astonish the more by a clear and positive utterance. It may think that slavery in its' varied aspects, is noi a question of morals at all, but of geography alone, to be determined entirely bythe " circumstances" of latitude and longitude. It may have adopted the standard of practical morals of Nassau street, and repudiated the doctrine that " all practical immorality, prevailing in any and every part of our country is to be dealt with even-handedly and impartially." We know not what it* does think, as it has failed thus far, to verify its promise in giving to an expectant Christian _^ public something " clear and positive" on _Ille subject of slavery, a question seemingly of more vital and practical importance than.the discovery of the occult an...

I have but just returned from visiting one who, with her husband and several .children, came*to this country some years.,ago. It took nearly all they had to get here. The children have all but one,left home—this one, a daughter, now herself a widow, occupies a room above. The wife and mother, has the consumption, and it is urging her rapidly, and with infallible certainty, to the grave. , Of this, she is perfectly and joyously conscious. They /were much more comfort able in their native land, but she rejoices greatly that she came, because it was the occasion of her being brought more fully into the light and liberty of the Gospel. Their means of support are exceedingly limited, but every thing looks neat, and the idea of squalid poverty is not at all suggested by a vi...
