There is resting upon it a debt of about $300.00. The entire cost of the building will bo about ♦700.000. We ought to aid those people both in helping to pay for the erection of their church and supplying them with the ministration of the Gospel. I preached tho first sermon in their now church on the third Sunday in Aug. It is ready for dedication. Tho future of that congregation is bright. On account of unavoidable circumstances I could not visit Manassas, Va., as was determined upon at last conference. Pastor Wetzel, our missionary for that place, informs me that in his judgment it is decidedly the most important missionary field lliat our conference has any thing to do with. It is a central point lu a large scopc of country into which Lutherans have been settling both from the Valley and from Pennsylvania. It is 27 miles from Alexandria, lie thinks that wc ought to giye permanency to our organization at Manassas by such a course of attention as to encourage them to hope that wc d...

Earthquakes- Last wook there were terrible, destructive earthquakes in France. Several towns were snuk aud destroyed. Hundreds of people weie killed. The destruction of life and property was unusually extensive. On the night of August 31, something of a similar character was experienced in this coun try. The ell'ectsofan earthquake wete felt in different sections of the United States. In Baltimore, buildings were shaken. Mirrors and chandeliers were put in motion. The windows rattled. At the "Langhara,'' southeast corner ol Charles and Centre streets, consternation prevailed, and mnuy of the guests, on hearing the rattling windows and seeing the swaying chande liers, rushed afrighted luto the street. Mrs. J. H. Scarff, who had retired, was wakened and terribly frightened. At 142 North Charles street, the pictures in the halls swayed, and a gen tlemau who was sitting in a chair was luado giddy. Several youug ladies wero dancing at 146 North Charles street, but stopped when they felt ...

CHURCH * ' PAPER. ESTABLISHED 1873. HENKEL & CO., Publishers. VOLUME XIV. Holding Forth. "Holding forth the word of life."—Fliil. ii. 10. The Apostles did this eupernaturally. They received their commission immediately from God; and were preserved from all mistakes in delivering his counsel; and coold work miracles in confirmation and in defence of it. Ministers do this officially. They pretend to no original communications from God, no new discoveries; they derive what they publish from the Scriptures ; and they call upon you to provo whether these things are so. Yet their preaching is a divine ordinance—a work whioh an angel might covet; the simple design of whioh is to hold forth the word of life. But there are many ways of doing this, common to all Christians. And they are the persons the Apostle here addresses. They may hold it forth by their profession. This is not to be considered as a substitute for experience, but as flowing from it. Experience is a secret thing...

CHURCH " PAPER. ESTABLISHED 1873. HENKEL & CO., Publishers. VOLUME XIV. The United Synod of the South- Tho result of the recent convention at Roanoke City, Va , is a matter for sincere gratitude to Cod on the part of all who love our Lutheran Zion. The writer hardly dared to hope that the union would bo effected; or, if effected, that it would be sufficiently hearty and unanimous to promise either piece or earnest co operation in Church work. Those not present in such conventions have little opportunity of kuowing the spirit that pervades tho assembly; or of determining the degree or kind of real harmony prevailing. Reporters often conceal tho differences that manifest themselves in the course of the business proceedings, and those exhibitions of temper, possibly of bad spirit, not uncommon in the dlscussiou of grave questions, are happily not entered on the record. Yet it is just these things that indicate most certainly permanent results. In the absence of information ...

For Our Church Paper. Augusta, Ga. It is with great pleasure, that your missionary, at this point, pens an article for "Our Church Paper" (a first-class name, for a first-class paper;) for it is "Oar''church papers, to which wo missionaries look, as our most efficient aids,—a church paper In every home and about one-half a pastor's hardest work is done for him ; its readers are Informed; we do not have to explain and talk and tell, but when a subject is mentioned they say, "O yes, I read Dr. H.'s article on that, and I am ready to help, because I understand all about it." Now we want the readers of "Our Ciiurch Paper,'' to understand something about oar mission In this large and growing city. The need was great, an imperative demand was there for an Evangelical Lutheran church, or an ultimate loss to the church. The call was made upon the S. 0. Synod of the Old General Synod South and nobly has she responded, purchasing for us a magnificent lot in the centre of the city; and now hol...

Cease my soul this idle sorrow, And this over-anxious care ; Take no vain thoughts for the morrow, And the wants to moot thee there, All thy care, how much abounding, Can not make a sure defense From the ills thy path surrounding, Leave them to Omnipotence. For the life lie lifts created, Must be greater than the meat, And His power is not abated, lie will give thee bread to cat. Fashioned for such high attainment, Such a glorious life to share. Know thy body's more than raiment, He will give thee clothes to wear. E'en the little sparrow teacheth From His sight no want can pass, And the tender lily preacheth God doth clothe the fading grass.

It seems, that, according to the best information we have, tho wheat crop in many of the foreign countries is rather a failure.
