Editor ;—A.t a period when TJoita-|anisni, ia the city of Boston, was more inblushing, and more ia the ascendant than f Tnow is, it is said that the celebrated Dr. John M. Mason, at the .request of some fiends of the Truth, visited that city, with ke view of preaching on the character of flhrist. When he had made a deliverance In that subject, marked by an unction , and I power, peculiar even to that great and good man, he closed his last prayer in lanluage to this effect: " Glory to the Lamb; End may the frost of the second death rest Ipon the tongue that will not say, Amen!" Rs he came down from the pulpit, one of lie Unitarian Doctors, several of!whom were bresent, with pompous and sneering rudeless of manner, thus accosted him: " Doctor ttason, have you come to Boston , io . teach Is Theology ?"

For the Presbyterian Banner and Advocate Action of the Synod of Iowa. IN RELATION TO THE DECEASE OT THREE OF THEIR MEMBERS DURING i"HE PAST TEAR. Synod would record with sorrow, yet with humble submission to the Divine will, the decease of three of our beloved brethren during tile past year, viz: Rev. Hugh Hutchinson, James Gallstine, and R. C. McComb. In leaving on our Records a brief tribute to their memories , we are pleased to note in regard to all of them, that they were faithful and beloved. Brother Hutchinson was a native of Ireland, and licentiate of the Presbytery of Bainbridge when he removed to this country about four years ago. He had been the very accepted and beloved pastor of the church of Le-Clairejfor about two years, when, in November last, he was called to that rest which remains for the people of God. Rev. James Gallatin was one of the pioneer preachers of our Church in, Iowa,, whilst it was yet a Territory. He was a native of Pennsylvania, received his" colleg...

s : ^ ^ p • • Tor the Presbyterian Banner and Advocate. A Few Plain Thoughts to a Young Friend ¦ Just Entering on the Ministry.~-Ko. 3. In my last, I spoke of iavoidibg extremes in the mode of preaching. Don't slavishly reaidi, and don't he an extemporaneous preacher. But if you will run into extremes, steer for the former-—that is, if you don't write extemporaneously, you will preach more truth, and wear hetter with the'church. , "„ ' • . Between these extremes, there is, you know, the preaching freely from, the manuscript, or from memory, or extemporaneously, as ministers understand that word. While I would deserve to be laiighed at for my pains, if I were to speak, ex cathedra^ about these modes, my opinion*may Have some weight with yoii, as the suggestion of experieipee and friendship. The deliberate conviction, then, is, that preaching exactly from memory is the worst. It is saying the same thing" to aferm, that in a few cases, it is the best. But in most cases, it makes ...

Though thy prayer Is but a groan, Christ the contrite heart will own; He who made thee thna to feel Has a sovereign balm to heal. Does thy sin a burden prove ? Is thy heart too hard to love ? Art thou vile, unworthy all 1 Listen to the Saviour's call; jliHeavy though thy burden be, w\Thou may'at oast it all on me ; i I thy righteousness will be} Look, poor sinner, look to me. Christ will peace and comfort give; O, how precious! Look and lioe. Then, poor sinner, why so sad; Look to Christ, rejoice, be glad. Well, thy sins may make thee mourn, But the Saviour salth "return;" Do not slight such calls of love, Look, poor sinner, look above. E. W. H.

Jefferson College. This Institution we regard as one' of very high importance, as connected with the general interests of the country j but as of inestimable worth to the Presbyterian Church. It has been to us oft for a wonder why her immediate friends—her Faculty and curators —did not more ardently press her claims upon a generous public. She has been toiling hard at her work,, making education excellent and easily accessible, and sending off her tkree or four scores of .graduates every year, to bless the land. And still, she is poor in funds-^very poor 1 ' v Must this state of things continue ? We trust not.

Mr. Editor :—the members of the Woman's Bights Convention, held here last week, must haye been flattered by the attention, if they were not edified by the strictures of the city press. Hardly a daily paper that did not report their proceedings, and in some instances in minute detail, while they'also made them the subjectof one or more " leaders," or editorials. The appearance of the Convention was as diversified as its opinions. It was a motley gathering of various grades and complexions j of the strong-minded and weakminded; ; the fanatical and fanciful; the sane and the insane.

A high degree of Piety among Humble, private Christians. « There are many in the Church whose bosoms glow with an intense and unusual holy ardor, when they read of the devotion and piety of those whose praises are in all the churches. And many of them often have a feeling of regret that they do not occupy similar stations, or have not been endowed with the same gifts. They seem to imagine that if circumstances allowed, their zeal for God would be glowing; if called to stand in the high places of the field, they would be valiant in the cause,of Christ; and if great sacrifices were required, most willingly would they make them. But no doubt many who reason thus, fail to consider ^ their, own> personal, responsibility in the places where they are found, and the many opportunities they have for disciplining their spirits for heaven, for doing good to men, and for adorning the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things, by kindness, by love unfeigned, by benevolence, and by...

r Revival in f airmpniit, Va. The Bev. B. Lewis writes to us, under date of December 1: r ; Bear Brother :—-For the encouragement, of God's dear children elsewhere, you may mention that the Lord has, in wonderful condescension and grace, visited Our "thirsty hill of Zion" with some sweet mercy drops from "the river of the water of life." Some of our, dear ,brethren and sisters in Christ have been much revived j some of our precious youth, and others, "have tasted that the Lord is gracious," and have enrolled their names among the followers of the despised "Nazarene;" and others are pressing into the kingdom. Christian ministers and people are often dejectedj injuriously soj by the low state of religion among them. We say injuriously, because they are thereby deterred from prayers and labors. Let them recall the promises , and apply faith thereto. Let them revise history, and see God's faithful, ness in answering the "day and night" prayers of his elect, and in making strenuous and...
