.Report of tlie Commissioner of Indian Affairs, The Beport of the Commissioner of Indian Affairs is an exceedingly interesting document. The improvement in {he condition of New York Indians is very perceptible; the farms, buildings, crops, and stock, and the substantial comforts surrounding the homes of many of the Oneidaa, Onondagas, Tuscaroras, and the Ton&wanda, Cattaraugus, and Allegheny Seneeas, evidence in them a uniform advaricement. Churches, and religion* influences, and schools are well sustained among them. The Ottawas, and Cbippewas, and the Cbippewas of Saginaw, Swan Creek and Black lUver, all within the State of Michigan, continue to increase, and from present indications, seem to justify the hope, that they will soon attain a much higher state of civilisation. The Cbippewas of Lake Superior have been furnished with a liberal supply, of farming implements and household furniture, the effect of which policy has been most salutary, and has stimulated many to er...

fht IBibk Chateclietical Exposition. Romans i : 26—31. Verse 26. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections; for even their women did change the natural use into that vhich is against nature. Q- 1. For wliat cause did God' give them itp unto vile affections ? A. Because they worshipped and served the creature < more than the Creator. ¦ Q. 2. When the Apostle begins to particularize, why does he mention the women, first, and say, even their women? A. To show that the depravity was total, and that the public morals were sunk to the lowest condition. Q. 3. How would this appear from the specification of their icomen? A. In this, that the most virtuous portion of the community was corrupted) and when women, s»s a class, become abandoned, regardless of virtue and modesty, it is evidence that society is then ,in the lowest stage of moral pollution. Verse 27. And likewise, also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another, men wi...
