Germans in the Unite d, States.—It is estimated, though we think too largely, that the number of G-erman speaking- people in this country is 5,000,000. More than- half are Protestants, mostly nominally Lutherans, though many haying been designated with State Churches, now give but little attention to religious "matters. They had been a religious people, and undoubtedly in this free country their infidelity will be greatly diminished. The Baptists have about 50 German churches, the United Brethren, and other denominations have pome representatives among them. The Methodist 'Episcopal.

.Christian Soldiers. There have been eminent Christian soldiers—there are now. Colonel Gardiner, whose -valor was tested in many a battle, gained his grandest victories" in defending •virtue against profligacy, and the truth,.of God against1 the cavils of French skepticism; and perhaps the greatest and most sublime 4f all, by his godly life amid the dissipation and profaneness of the camp. He often declared his views of religion and duty At the head of his regiment, and urged his captains and' their subalterns to take the greatest care that they ' did not give the sanction .of their example to that which, by their office, they were obliged' to punish in others. ' He,too, despised danger. He _was a pat&jcft of the deepest devotion. He often _expressed the desire—if it were the -will of God—that he might have1 some call to sacrifice his life in "defence of religion and tne liberties of his country; and when ii appeared to him( that the opportunity was dra'wing nigh, he emb...

tuous; be religious. Be a good man. Nothing else will give you any comfort when called upon to lie here.*' Reader, was Walter Scott a weak entlrtt_] siast? The hour is near when you, too, will be upon a dying bed. ' Will you not feel then as he did ? Are you prepared for this hour? A Thought - from Segker.—Cicero complains ;o£.Hpmer_^tthat he; taught the gp<ls to live like men; bu_£ grace teaches men to live like gods. It is lamentable that we should live so long in the world, and do so little for God; or that we should live so short a time in the world, and do sp much for Satan. Other creatures are not more below a sinner than a saint .ia above a sinner. Man is the excellency of the creature, the saint is the excellency' of man; grace is the excellency of the saint, and glory Is the excellency of ¦ grace. ; Time wears slippers of list, and Ms tread is noiseless.

SELECT : BEADING Why Christ Left NoImage.—Four men who loved Christ with a love' stronger than deatb-V wrote his life, but left nos hirit of his height, complexion, features, or any point that could help the mind.to a personal image. Others wrote long epistles, of which he was the Alpha and Otoesgajbut his form is as much kept out of'view as the body of Moses, _hidden by the. Almighty in an _undiscovered grave. . The Christian tombs and relies of the first centuries show no attempt to make an image of Christ. Too deep a sense of the Divine rested upon the early Chureh to permit any attempt to; paint the human as it appeared in him.-— Rev. Win. Arthur. _Keeping the Farm Out. — Many Christians seem never to overcome the sin of cpvetousness. They are all their lives held in bondage, and know little of the luxury of giving to the Lord. This sin, when once rooted in the heart, goeth not put'but by prayer arid fasting. Dr. Sprague_'s " Annals of the Baptist Pulpit" has a capital i...

Tie Wrong Signal. " What has happened V said Mr. Hamilton to his son, who entered the room in haste, and with the air of one who had some interesting news to communicate. "A freight train has xua off the track and killed a man," said Joseph. " How did that happen?" said Mr. H. " The watchman gave the wrong signal. The engineer said that if he had given the right signal, the accident would not have occurred." Making the wrong signal cost a man his life. There is another sense in which wrong signals sometimes occasion the loss of life—of life spiritual. The preacher who fails to declare the way of: salvation as it is laid down in God's Word, who teaches that all men shall be saved, or who teaches that men .may obtain salvation by their own works, gives the wrong signal. In consequence j men take the wrong track, and go on to perdition. 1 - The priyate Christian, whose reputable standing in the Church and In society givei influence to his example, pursues a course of conduct utte...
