The Synod of Philadelphia. This Synod, at its late meeting, passed an order earnestly urging and enjoining upon pastors , Sessions, and Presbyteries , the following, viz: 1st. That love to Christ's cause is an essential element of Christian piety. 2d. That regular contribution of our worldly substance, according as God lias prospered us, is an. ordinary and important part of practical religion. 3d. That, accordingly, it is the duty of ministers to instruct the people, in due proportion, regarding the grace of contribution, and the sin of coming empty before the Lord, and neglecting this part of religion. 4th. That the pastors and officers of the churches are as truly bound to make arrangements for the cultivation of the grace of benevolence, and for the performance of this part of pract ical religion, as for any other part of the officers of •worship. - Beit therefore enjoined upou the pastors and other appropriate officers of the churches, to give due diligence, in word and work,...

The Closing Year. The year which is now drawing to a c: <e has been fruitful in great events. The history imperfectly chronicled in our pu^ during its progress, is more important tban that recorded by the ablest historians of other days. So far as history is the guide of our actions, those events are of paramount importance which are Dear to tts. atd most intimately connected with the interests of the Bedeemer's kingdom. That kingdom furnishes the central idea in relation to whieh the events of history are to be viewed, and by whieh their value may be determined. The philosophy of history. about which so much has been vaguelj said, is contained in that simple and sublime generalization of the immortal Edwards , in which he regarded the history of the world as the history of Redemption. In its li-ht , the distinction between civil and reliai us history disappears. Hence the history of the world must be re-written, if the ih. * -Q. rian would set forth the true causes of even...

The North British Review, Dr. Chalmers, and the Theology of Scotland. The number of the North British Review for November, commences with an extended and elaborate leader on the works of Dr. Chalmers. This article is in many respects one of the most extraordinary and significant which has ever appeared in that miscellany. Popularly, the" North British is recognized, as the organ of the Free Church of Scotland; but if anything were required in addition to the late disclaimers which have been put forth on this point, to satisfy the community that the popular creed is incorrect, that evidence is afforded in this review of the works of the latest of Scotland's worthies. ^ If such an article had been written ten years ago, in an Irish or American journal, it would have aroused a storm of indignation all over " braid " Scotland. Had such assaults been made in any periodical published out of Scotland, on the mental characteristics, the attainments and principles of Dr. Chalmers, together...

The Assembly, as clearly as language can express ideas, speaks of two things, or of the same thing in two aspects. First , of the reducing of free "men to a state of slavery. This it calls a "voluntary enslaving," and describes it as "a gross violation of the most sacred rights of human nature; as^ utterly inconsistent with the laws of God," and " totally irreconcilable with the spirit and principles of the doctrines of Christ." Now, could the Assembly tolerate in the Church, men habitually guilty of such asin—living in such a sin! Impoesible! Then the word "slavery," as used afterwards in the Act, cannot be synonymous with " voluntary, enslaving," as first useoY The As sembly could not retain in communion , men horrible in sin, as first described. Why, even Congress, with all its fauitSj will not bear with such in the country—will not suffer them to live. The traffic, which stimulates to the habitual practice of that sin, is made Piracy, and is made punishable by death ; and in...

Washington Correspondence. Washington, Dec. 22, 1856. The argument in tbe Missouri ease, which consumed four consecutive tbiys, was concluded on Thursday, by Mr." George T. Curtis, of Boston, in an able effort sustaining the constitutionality of the Missouri Compromise, and asserting the unqualified power of Congress to legislate for the Territories. This cau.«e has attracted unusual interest and attention, from the magnitude of the principles involved. It has now been twice and elaborately argued, with a formidable array of ability on both sides, and under such circumstances, it is hoped, the Court will meet tbe real issue at stake, and not by a collateral one of jurisdiction only, determine merits of the greatest and most imposing character ever presented to this tribunal. It is not to be disguised, that the sectional strifes which have in one form or other developed iheir influence upoa almost every department of the Government, have also, in a degree, impressed themselves upon...

"We last week noted the opposition of the Southern press generally, both religious and political, and thnt the subject had been laid on the table by the Southern Convention, and deferred by the Legislature of South Carolina.
