_^01 Af t sHft _rfvtv " Who Touclied Me?" 3. Thousands, thousands gathered round thee; Tens of thousands swell thy train ; See the myriads that surround thee 1 Can such homage all be vain ? Lo I the crowds encompass—press thee' Hail thee as they more along; Bow the knee, extol, caress thee I Thee, the burden of their song! li. All In Tain, this adoration; Cold it falls _\ipon thine ear; Dot the homage of a nation Was to thee so sweet, so dear, As that gentle touch that moved, thee—Drew the healing from thy frame; Touch of trembling faitb, •which proved thee Faithful to thy gracious name. MI. Iron hands were those that bound thee, , Smote, and scourged thee; marred thy face Hude the cord that passed around thee, As they spurned thy silent grace. All was borne without complaining; , Not a murmur, or a frown; All thy native power restraining, As they wove thy thorny crown. IT. Patient as a lamb for slaughter, Thou did'st stand, nor turn thy face; Bnt, when Sorrow's trembling daughter...

ffiftft A Charming Little Beauty. A charming little beauty lives o'er in yonder dell, "Within her humble cottage, Love, Truth and Friendship dwell; Gay birds are chanting tliere, the songs we've _heoxd before, And a fragrant vine, is twining about the cottage door. There sweetest flowers are springing, beneath the sun's bright ray, A sparkling stream is singing, through all the Summer day; Within the spreading bough of yonder chestnut tree, The srongsters gladly warble, to her in merry glee. To all a smile is given, a smile of magic power, Which makes an earthly-heaven of many aweary hour; She's always kind and true, her heart is Ml of love, Her eyes than stars are brighter, that shine from * heaven above.

. . . ..,., _ ; — | j Of Religion in General. I It signifies nothing to say we will notB change our religion, if our religion change1 not us. I If a man lives and dies a mere professor, j it had been better for him if he had lived and died a mere heathen. The duty of religion flows from a principle of religion. It is not talking, but walking with God, that gives a man the denomination of a Christian. I Darkness may as well put on the name of light, as a wicked man the name of a Christian. It is our main business in this world to secure an interest in the next. A desire of happiness is natural; a desire of holiness is supernatural. If God hath done that good for us which he has denied to the world, we ought to do that service for him, which is.denied him by the world. If we are willing, God will help us; if sincere, God will accept us. A serious remembrance of God is the fountain of obedience to God. * If you forget God when you are young, God may forget you when you are old". Wh...

For the Presbyterian Banner and Advocate. Church. Dedication* The First Presbyterian church of Millstone, Monmouth County, N. J., having been rebuilt since April lsfet, was to be dedicated to the service of Almighty God, providence permitting, on Thursday, October 23]-1856. This, Mr. Editor, is another noble illustration of the progressive spirit of a true people of God, espoused to the cause of Christ; and attached to the house of their devotion, and the graces of their Father. Less than one month since, you announced the organization of a Presbyterian church, thirty-four of whose forty-eight members were from this pejaple, which had been struggling into a mere nominal existence as a church, from 1790, until, under the ministration of its present pastor, the Rev. C. F. Worrell, it assumed the position of an independent church, of two hundred and sixty-sis members , with its church edifice full (^overflowing. Not discouraged by the loss of so many members, a number nearly equal to...

The Freedom of the Will not Destroyed in Regeneration. ^, | Dr. Cummings, in a recent work il Ba the Comforter," speaking of the changesfwhich the Holy Spirit makes in the character of a man in regeneration, remarks:—1 - • The Holy Spirit, in making these changes, does not destroy all freedom of action. One class of men deify " human' effort, another class degrade the human soul j one party would make man his own Saviour, another party would make man- a mere brute machine. He is neither. Man is a free and re&ponsible beiog.j he works willingly what he doesj the freedom of-his will is not crushed by the influence of the Holy Spirit of God; I appeal to every Christian. The Spirit has touched your heart, he has changed your affections, he has altered the whole man \ but you were so little conscious of any coercive po wer exercised b y his presence, that you did not know he had cha;nged your heart until you beheld the magpficeni and ^ g84e4?*t6^i^tua ^o Uowl^ Holy Spirit that ...

Effects of Worship on the Insane. One of our exchanges says, on the authority of Miss DixJ the philanthropist, that among the hundreds of crazy people with whom her sacred missions brought. her into companionship, she has not found one individual, however fierce and turbulent, that could not be calmed by Seriptureand prayer, uttered in low and gentle tones. The power of religious sentiments over those shattered souls seems miraculous. The worship of a quiet, loving heart,'affects them like a voice from heaven. Tearing and rending, yelping and stamping, singing and groaning, gradually subside into silence, and they fall on their knees, or gaze upward, with clasped hands, as if they'saw, through the opening darkness, a golden gleam'from .theirC Fah tiler's throne of love. , CI

That Blessed Home. Home I To be at home is the wish of the seaman on stormy seas and lonely watch. Home is the wish . of the soldier, and tender visions mingle wUh the troubled dreams of trench and tented field. Where the palm tree waves its graceful plumes, and birds of jeweled lustre flash and flicker among the gorgeous flowers, the exile sits staring upon vacancy, y a far-a-way home lies on his heart; and, borne on the wings of fancy over intervening seas and lands, he has swept away home, and hears the lark singing above his father's fields and sees his fair-headed boy brother, with light foot and childhood's glee, chasing the butterfly by his native stream. And in his best hours, home, his own sinless home—; a home with his Father above that sky, will be tEe wish of every Christian man. He looks around him—the world is full of suffering; he is distressed with its sorrows and vexed with its sins. He looks within him—he finds much in his. own corruption to grieve for. In the la...

The Bible. Tell me where the Bible w , as a household book, and where.it is not,, and I will write a moral geography of the world, I will show what , in all particulars, is the physical condition of that people. One glance of your eye will inform you where the Bible is, and where it is not. Go to: Italy—decay, degradation, and suffering meet you on every side. Commerce droops, agriculture sickens, the useful arts languish. There is a heaviness in the air; you feel compressed by invisible power; the people dare not speak aloud; they walk slowly; an armed soldiery is around their dwellings; the armed police take from the stranger his Bible before he enters the territory. Ask for the Bible in a bookstore-—it is not there; or in a form so large and expensive as to be beyond the reach of .common people. The preacher takes no text from the Bible. You enter the Vatican, and inquire for the Bible, and you will be pointed to some case where it reposes among ^br oe pronibited books, side by...

A True Story with a Few Words. Some few years ago, a clergyman of a neighboring city, equally remarkable for his piety, usefulness, and eccentricity, (now deceased,) while traveling on a steamboat, met a plain elder of a country church, with whom the following conversation was held.
