IlNl&TiiRS AND _SOUUL AFFAIRS. * F The influence of the ministry on the sentiments, character and condition oF a community, is imniense. Man has a conscience, and the development and culture of that conscience belongs to those who officiate in sacred things. And conscience has to do with a very large circle of social affairs. It is to take cognizance of every thing respecting which ' Grbd has spoken ' .' The whole Bible, then, is but the limit of the subjects on which conscience acts j and hence nought but the Bible camjustly boun 1 the functions of the minister. Bible subjects) Bible-sentiments, and Bible _spirit, are his directory land _guided The, ministry thus may well'b. e held, responsible, to a great extent, for th'eiconditioh of society: Weiknow that there are ten thousand ' other infliaenees at work, besides their_|,'"and sonie of "them are antagonistic and..,powerful; but- still, it is the teaching8_jof the ministry which made men, in a great measure, what thpy...

ji cr s * iU _jjatnib* For the Pnubyteriaa Burner. A Soldier's First Experience in Battle, [The following from an officer in our army,the son of an excellent minister in our Church, will, exhibit the feelings with which our brave soldiers make their first acquaintance with the battle field.] We went through our three months' probation as quietly and peacefully as most of the three months' volunteers did; ,but we 've seen the shells bursting around us, heard the roar of cannon and rattle of musketry, and smelt the smoke of battle, at last. Our company was just collecting from the picket posts for the usual morning drill on Wednesday, when we heard the heavy boom of cannon at Harper's Ferry. This alone did not disturb us much, for we have grown accustomed to hearing " cannon to right of us, cannon to left of us, cannot in front of us," and " nobody hurt" except some rebel haystack or rebel barn, on which our volunteer batteries frequently practice their raw recruits. But prese...

EASTERN SUMMARY BOSTON AND NEW-ENGLAND. Notwithstanding the great inducement offered to capitalists to invest in valuable stocks afe low figures, and in Government securities at high rates of interest, a large amount of work has been done in this eity during the year in erecting new buildings of various descriptions, caused mainly by the fact that both materials and labor have ruled at low rates, and that, as a conseq uence, a most propitious time for improviug this class of property had arrived, which is likely to continue to the end of this fratricidal rebellion. The _Centennial Anniversary of Christ Church (Episcopal) in Cambridge, Massachusetts, was celebrated on Tuesday. The Boston Traveller says : " Rev. Winwood Seargent was rector of this church from 1766 to the tro_'ublous times preceding the American Revolution. •During this struggle divine services-were _^ omitted, the building at one time having ¦been used'as barracks for American soldiers. > ' ' ' But' w...

_< f he Christian Observer.—Gar readers will remember' that"1 this ¦ paper, published in Philadelphia _^ by the Rev. Dr. Converse, of the New-School Presbyterian Church, was suppressed some time ago by the Government _^ on account of its treasonable tendencies. _^ Las t week a half sheet of the paper was'issued in which there was a long eri'umeratidri of the causes leading to its first' establishment, of the work its has done, and of the circumstances attending ita * suppression. But the proprietors announce its suspension for the present on _ithe ground that the, freedom of the press has been seriously interfered with. This we take to be a roundabout way of saying that unless treason can be tolerated the Observer cannot be published. On the whole, we have come to the conclusion that it is best to support the Government even if we should be compelled to do without the ¦Observer. ,; :
