_OKE H0_TTE. _Ifeiras at the close of a beautiful day in Palestine, when the temple and domes of Jerusalem reflected golden light, and the still air of evening gathered on the city walls, that the pious band of disciples and their beloved Leader passed out of the gates, and turned their feet to the Mt. of Olives. They had just commemorated the holy rites of communion in the Last Supper, previous to that dreadful event which prophecy had foretold, and before which even the sun must veil his face. The shadows of evening were gathering, when that heroic band, leaving the gates, directed their course to a quiet retreat, where they might prepare for the morrow. The Mt. of Olives, is at hand, within whose shades the garden of Gethsemane is situated. Here the disciples and their Master may watch and pray during the long hours of the night, till the dawning of the morrow which is to witness their separation. Their Lord and Saviour had told theui all, and bade them prepare for the ev...

¦' ' "_^l^^^«^^«_PHPPWM*»P_""P^^^—" MODERN PREACHERS. A great deal of fault has been found with modern preachers, botbiby critics * and the million; but the grand defect of many seems to us to be, that they are wanting in heart. _3giey are icicles. They may argue with logical precision , but they argue coldly. They, jnay convince the understanding, but they have pot sensibility enough to touch the warm _sympathies, and make a vivid impression upon the feelings of even the devout soul. Even if they touch this chord accidentally, it seems hot natural _^them, _^nd they are presently back again to their stiff creeds and dry dogmas—coolly _untying _consequences united in a priori, bundling up _inductions a posteriori, and hammering away at.eatise and effect, original sin, predestination, beings iself-existent, and the universal scale of beings. / Instead of giving a deep and commanding _interest to their arguments by applying them to those (feelings which are common to all hearts, ...

. - ., ' —-- ; ?? _« , 3P0REWN ITEMS. Lord Palmebston and the Sabbath Question..—As Sir John Trelawney has given notice of a motion to open the British Museum and-other national and pictorial exhibitions on Sabbath, a large and influential _deputation of Noblemen, members of Parliament, clergymen and gentlemen, waited on the Prime Minister, on Monday was a week, and urged him to eppose any such motion for opening secular institutions on the Sabbath. Lord PalmerstOn, with, much emphasis, said he " wa's sorry to see the motion of Sir John, because he thought the question had been disposed of by what had formerly passed. There could be no doubt as to the feelings of the Government on the subject: they could not agree to the motion, and would meet it either by a direct negation or by moving the previous question, as was found most expedient." Lord Shaftsbury expressed the cordial thanks of the deputation for the bold and manly way in which the noble Premier _KacT expressed Mirjsel...

EDITOR'S TABLE. CHRISTIANITY IN THE FIRST CENTTfRY_; or, the New Birth of the Social Life of Man through the rising of Christianity. By Chr. Hoffmann. Translated from the German. Edinburgh: T. & T. Clark. ' Philadelphia : Smith, English & Co. Christianity is represented as a living, energizing, formative principle, adapted to man's universal necessities, and elevating him into a participation of a higher and spiritual life, and fellowship and communion with God. The subject is practically illustrated by the history of Christianity during the first century. It was promulgated at a time when all other systems had signally and manifestly failed; and when there was a common expectation of some new era. The essential power and life of Christianity are manifest in the striking changes it wrought; in its new life; in its high aims; in its self-sacrificing zeal ; in its power to overcome obstacles and transform institutions , and change the current of thought and manne...

Both the Green Hill and North Broad Street Churches met last week, and made out unanimous calls at liberal salaries.

TOO LATE lot CHURCH. _" We feel inclined to lay a word to that class of persons who do not attend upon divine ordinances at the proper time. It is freely admitted that there may be, oec|sipns on which persons are unavoidably detained beyond the hour, of meeting. When Jhis is the case, we think it is improper for persons on this account to remain at home. They should -endeavor to be at the house of God though _thley may not be able to be there in good season. iOur remarks are not intended to apply to such cases. There are, ho wever, in almost every _congregation, some persons who are just : as-likely to be too late in coming to the house pf God as to be there in the proper time, and v_?ho think it a matter of very little consequenc% whether they are too late or not. Nay, ther|iare persons from whose conduct we might suppose that they made it a point 1 to be late. Such an imputation, however, would be very uncharitable, aud_.therefore we are far from supposing that such is the...

_OTTEEir TOT0EIA AND THE J 8IBLE. It was a noble and .beautiful answer or our Queen^—the monarch of a: free people, reigning more by love than law, because seeking to reign in the fear of God—^it was a noble answer she gave to an African Prince, who sent, an embassage with costly presents, and asked her in return to tell him the _secret of England's _greatness and-England's glory; and bur beloved Queen sent him, not the number of her fleet, hot the number of her armies,; not the account of her bound less merchandise, not the details of her inexhaustible wealth.

¦ ¦ ' ¦¦ _? »? LIBEBALIT1V The New York correspondent of the Christian Instructor gives the following instance of considerate liberality in a young Christian worthy of imitation. God will prosper and bless those who forget not to bring their tithes into his storehouse: "An instance of liberality to the cause of missions on the part of a young .man has just come under wy notice, of which, through a desire to provoke others to good works, I shall submit a brief account.

SELF-DEVELOPMENT. . We commend the following valuable and practical suggestions, by the N. Y. Evavgelist , to the consideration of the presbyteries of our denomination. We have the best machinery in the world for doing good, if we only kept it in working order, and develope its full force:-— Let, the Presbyteries work, and be united under a common head, such as the General Assembly, so that the strong can help the weak, and but little more will be needed. This is true self-development; and this we must attain, ere our Church can be strong and great. The body claiming to be superior,—whether it is ecclesiastical or voluntary,—which ignores, neglects, hinders, or which does not stimulate Presbyteriai activity, does the Church a lasting injury. for Each Presbytery is the centre of action all its churches, and is bound to do what it can to incite them tP zeal and fidelity in the work of spreading the Gospel. If our body has any weak point now, it is in its Presbyteries. Instead ...

'THE LOGIC OF OUR _INSTITUTIONS." A good story, all the better for being undoubtedly true, is told of an interview between a very distinguished American and the present Pope. His holiness, designing a special compliment, had expressed his desire that the American should visit him, at a fixed hour and in a familiar: way. This was accordingly don,ei The Pope met_; his visitor most graciously, and very soon expressed, his great gratification that Catholics enjoyed'suxsh unrestricted liberty in the United States. Without waiting to calculate the embarrassment which his remark would occasion, following hastily the first impulses of his nature, the American accepted the compliment to his country, aud expressed the hope that his holiness would reciprocate this privilege of liberty to his own spiritual children, 4_>y granting an equal liberty to Protestants in< the Roman States. The embarrassment of the Pope was* instant, > and the American , discovered the uneasi...

THE NEWSPAPER. Rev. Henry Ward Beeeher thus speaks of the newspaper, the common people's Encyclopaedia "In no other way can so much, so varied, so useful information be imparted, and under circumstances so favorable for educating the child's mind, as through a judicious, well-conducted newspaper. To live in a village, was once to be shut up and contracted. But now a man may be a hermit, and yet-a cosmopolite. He may live in the forest, walking miles to a post-office, having a mail but once a week, and yet he shall be found as familiar with the living world as the busiest actor in it. For the newspaper is a spy-glass by which he brings near, the most distant objects—an ear trumpet by which he collects and brings within his hearing all that is said and done all over the earth ~a museum full of living pictures of real life, drawn, not on canvass, but with printer's ink on_! paper. The effect in liberalizing and enlarging the mind of the young, of this weekly commerce with the w...

way up the aisles of the church. Here is a serious interruption, and one, too, which may have a very unhappy influence on the devotional feelings of those who are engaged in the worship of Almighty God; and all this, too, perhaps, just for the want of a little attention on your part. We ask you, reader, is this right? Is it seemly ? Is it consistent with the apostolic injunction, "Let all things be done decently and in order?" If professing Christians attached to this subject the importance which it deserves, whole congregations would more frequently, when the hour arrives, be prepared to say, at least by their presence, to the messenger of God when, at the appointed hour, he rises in the pulpit, "We are all present before God to hear all things that are commanded thee of God.'' : Ch. Instructor.

Anti-Sevival Water.—The London Quarterly Review has a capital review of the great Religious Revivals of the present day. In a note the Review states that in Ireland the Roman Catholic priests denounced the Revival.. Many advised their flocks against this new work of the devil," and represented it as an alarming and contagious disease. They blessed charms and bottles of holy water, and sold them to the people to prevent them from { catching it.' -One priest realized five pounds in a month, and another made seventeen pounds in a few weeKs.

A Step Towards the Light.—Jbarge assemblies of Hindoos, all of high, and many of the highest caste, have lately taken place in many parts of India, to praise and thank God for the restoration of peace. They no longer worship the gods of their forefathers, and their prayers, some of which have been published in the Bombay papers, show the progress which the enlightened Hindoos have made under the influence of English education, and give ground of hope for the rapid advancement of Christianity in that country. Missions in New Zealand,—It is well known that missionary effort has been largely successful in this deeply interesting section of the world. The following, however, is painful: The Wesleyan missionaries are much annoyed and hindered by recent political movements. But a worse evil still is the introduction of intoxicating liquors by European traders. Young men of promise are arrested in their course of improvement by this destroyer; from drinking they fall into gambling, ...
