f&tttf_. For the American Presbyterian. TO.MIJOTHEE. "If we suffer, we shall also reign with Him. " 1 Aht yes! I know the way . _: Is _ofttlmes very weary—not a ray . Of God's own blessed sunlight seems to shine Upon this path! this tear-stained path of thine. Then all the world is drear! Doubt and temptation!—dark distressing fear—Rude, ragged roughness, for thy bleeding feet; Sad sorrow's stormy tempests 'round thee beat. In thy great grief alone, Listening the wild wind's wailing, mournful moan! That tearful sound of sighing for the past, Its precious dreams, oh God I too bright to last I know, for I have dwelt Where came that dreary _tlarkness that is felt! i 1 know it all—the suffering, piercing pain! - . That cry of anguish o'er love's broken chain. I know the withering blight—The eager soul-sick longing for the light! That aching void! the crown of thorns, all, all! _^ Alone 1 Oh Christ, the worm-wood and the gall! - _. ¦ • ¦ Oh! broken-hearted one1 ! Listen, Hi...

IT.IB ONLY A PRAYER MEETING." " Yes, it is only a prayer meeting, and therefore, if it be a little cold, or wet or snowy—or if it be a little disagreeable travelling—or if I feel a little averse to travelling out, that is sufficient excuse. If it were a sermon, I should not think of remaining at home, but it is but _sprayer meeting. Few will be present, and it is so dry and uninteresting, I shall not attend." Is this the language of a Christian? Can it be that the prayer meeting is an uninteresting place to the follower of Jesus? Yet is it not too evident that the conduct of many professors of religion, if put into words, would speak plainly the above sentiments? Why is this? Can that church be in a prosperous condition, where a large majority of the members feel arid act thus in these matters? ,We leave the reader to judge. We could name one little country church, where a weekly meeting for prayer is attempted, and though the church stands in a thickly settled neighborhood, where...

, Habits.—There arc habits, not only of drinking, swearing and lying, and of some other things which are commonly acknowledged to be habits, but of every modification of action, speech and thought. Man is a bundle of habits. There are habits of industry,attention, vigilance, advertency; of a prompt obedience to the judgment occurring, or of yielding to the first impulses of passion; of extending our views to the future, or of resting upon, the present; of apprehending, methodizing, reasoning; of indolence, dilatoriness; of vanity, sel&conceit, melancholy, partiality; of fretfulness, suspicion, eaptiousness, censoriousness; of pride, ambition, covetousness; of overreaching, intriguing, projecting; in a word, there is nota quality or function, _either of body or mind, which does not feel the influence of this great law of auinia-*«#? _nnfnrft.

_EELKMOirS FKESS COBBECTION. "As was Expected.—-Under the head of " Jteligious Intelligence," the American Presbyterian copies with evident relish from the N~ . Y. Evangelist-r-pa(i)r nobile fratrum— the story about Rev. B. C. Smith, and the harsh treatment shown him in N. Carolina, which was contradicted last week, _tfn Mr. Smith's authority. It is not at all likely that the denial will be published in those journals which have given it a wide circulation—they have accomplished their object and helped to inflame the northern mind." N. C.

THOMAS BRAINERD_, JOHN JENKINS, * HENRY DARUNQ, THOMAS _S. SHEPHERD. w \ THE SOU, GOB'S IMAGE. One of the striking scriptural descriptions of Christ, the Son, is that He "is,the iuiage of the invisible God." The word image literally means likeness, resemblance} similitude, but when applied to the Son it must have a peculiar significance. It is not enough to say that God's Son is God's image, in the same sense that the statue or portrait of Augustus Csesar is the visible likeness of the invisible emperor, for if the Son be eternal He is something more than mere resemblance. A carved or painted likeness is formed, fashioned, made, but the Son is Creator of all-things. It is? witnessed of the Son i " For by Him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones, or dominions...

OtfR _CHRISTIAJT YOJJUG MEN. We are fain to believe that the death of Rev. Dudley A. Tyng was made, in the providence of God, a great means of promoting the cause of Christianity among the young men" of our city. Certainly it aided very materially to bring our Christian young men more prominently before the church and the public generally. The fame of their Philadelphia Association has spread throughout our country, and in fact throughout the world, as our foreign files show. It would be difficult to count up the number of prayer-meetings and missions of different kinds sustained by their labors—difficnlt, because many of them are carried on in the most simple, unostentatious manner, with no other stimulus than a sense of drity, or the promises of Holy Writ. Their co-operation in our church prayermeetings gives them life and variety. Their Association, too, operates in a very important way to guard strangers of their own age coming into the city from the deleterious _influences ...

THE MISSIONABIES IN ._TTTEKEY AND THE AEMENIAN HELPEES. Messrs. Editoes:—The matter about whieh you express a desire for information, is easily explained.. The Kirchen Zeitung is as far from exactness of truth, when speaking on other points, as it is when it calk the American Board the " New York Board of Missions." The statement, as to the reluctance of Armenian converts to adopt the " religious usages of American Presbyterians and Independents," is altogether wide of the mark. In all their religious assemblies, divine worship is conducted as in our churches and social meetings. Their preference for extempore prayer over liturgical forms, is strong and universal. I say this with entire confidence, notwithstanding the application to Bishop Gobat from Diarbekir, of the design and meaning of which I Have information not yet made public. I am not aware of any religious usage prevailing among us to which they object. The plan of Church organization and rules of discipline adopted by...

_JTASAL HERESY. Heresy-huntiBg is becoming a theological science, and the last Congregationalist insists, that there is a regular "Smelling Committee prowling around" their New England Zipn, especially the schools of the prophets, and catching up every unformed and immature thought or word that a beardless tyro at some _Jericho may chance to drop, which is not in the catechism, and then sending it abroad as representing the degenerate tendency of the teachings of the rabbis. It instances the case of one of these incognito-smellers, who by prolific letter-writing, excites the holy horror of the.readera of four Old School papers in as many different cities, as to the rapid and hopeless degeneracy _of orthodoxy- in New England. We contend that this anonymous bugbear is all wrong. The American Theological Review was instituted for this very purpose, and it is by no means doing its work superficially. It has penetrated to the very bones and marrow, and ossified into a heresy the common...

" ATStK&LS OF THE POOR;" "O, MY SAD HEART!" Seven years ago a young woman came from " Erin" to this city, and here married a young man, also from her native land. They lived happily together; but, when I called at her room yesterday, he " was not, for God had taken him." I sat down patiently, and gradually drew front her the following affecting narrative. ¦-.- ¦ - Her husband was a temperate, industrious man, but he was consumptive, and suffered much from sickness. Their first child, when about two and a-half years old, died. In the meantime a young girl, a relation, came to see them j was taken ill in their room _^ and after lingering on a bed of sickness for months, died also, and was decently huried. Next her husband was taken sick, and continued so for many months j during a portion of the time , however, he received assistance from a society of whiph he was a member. By and by his second child died suddenly. Finally, after passing through these afflictions, and ...

READING. During the long evenings of this season of the year, the time can be employed in no better way, than in reading good . being great recreation after the labors of the day,'we" at the same time, are enriching our ininds with more golden treasures. Many of our young men , who idle away their evenings in the various _places of amusement , might find greater enjoyment at home with their books , and in the end, bo in the pos session of a useful store of knowled ge. In all of our cities there are large public libraries , always accessible tothose who have not the means of procuring books of their own. - ¦ . In these days when the world is flooded with books, great care should be exercised in selecting fit books for perusal ; books that will not only amuse,-but instruct.

THE READING PAESONAGE—AN EXAMPLE FOE CHFECHES; We learn, with pleasure, that the Heading congregation have just finished a parsonage for our excellent brother, Richards, and he is now occupying it. It is a few doors from the church, and on the same street. The people of Beading have not supposed that their minister ought to live in a house that is not in all respects comfortable. It is built of brick; is three stories front and rear, and has every appliance to make it convenient. When we inquired its cost, onft,of the building committee said—"Oh, it didn't cost very much I" —which the reader is not to take very literally, but as the kindly and unostentatious way in which they do things at Reading. We had the pleasure of visiting the Sabbath school, and found it full of active, bright children. We never saw a more vivacious school. The teachers were all alive, and the children looked very intelligent. By the liberality of Judge Strong, now of this city, an addition was built to t...

Intolerance in Paris.—On the 7 th of January last, all the English residents in the city of Paris were thrown into a state of violent excitement by the announcement that the Chapel of the Rev. ' Archer Gumey had been closed by order of the Prefect of Police. No reason could at first be assigned for such a proceeding on. the part of the authorities. The manner, too, in which this unusual step was taken, was, if possible, more objectionable than the step itself. At the very end of the week—that is to say, on Saturday, about twelve o'clock,—two individuals presented themselves to Mr. Gurney, at Ms church in the Rue _de la Madeleine, and then and there served upon him a peremptory notice to cease to exercise his ministry (son. culte) until the Minister of Public "Worship should have farther decided whether an authorization to that effect should be granted to him or not. * This was the more surprising, inasmuch as Mr. Gurney, before commencing his public duties in Paris, had app...

The news of the agricultural successes of the colonists is very encouraging. The cane erops were more extensive than usual, and promised a.richer yield, and breadstuffs were abundant and cheap. A treaty has been executed between the Republic and the King of Abbeokuta—by the terms of which the colonists have access to new territory. ' _CoriiMius C.

The convention of ministers and eiders of the churches connected with the Presbytery of Marshall, called to meet in this place on Tuesday, the 21st inst., closed yesterday, after a very harmonious and interesting session of two days. The object of this gathering was to promote the acquaintance and fellowship of the churches, to discuss the duties of the _eldersWp a_»d seoure a greater efficiency in discharging them, and to stir each other up to more earnest zeal in spiritual things. The opening sermon was preached by Bev. C. S.
