lor the Presbyterian Banner and Advocate. Long Sermons. [Tastes, habits, fashions, are all liable to run into extremes. To correct these tendencies, a little ridicule, judicdusly applied, is excellent. Even, in serious things it may be used. Our correspondent would apply it to the fever which is now becoming so prevalent, for short sermons,—Ed.] A man must have a good deal of impudence to think that he can entertain an. intelligent audience twice every week with sermons half au hour long, said a fashionable young man, in a drawing rcom at one of our fashionable watering-places. A man must have a good opinion of his own abilities, who will undertake tojpreaeh half an hour to a polite congregation, said a fashionable young lady, who was a communicant in a fashionable church. Mr. A. would never suit us; he preaches such " long sermons" that he would drive ail the rich and fashionable families from our congregation, says an elder in one of our fashionable churches.

Foe the / Presbyterian Banner and Advocate. Synodical Convention. According to agreement, the Synods of Ohio and Cincinnati, (OS.,) met in the First Presbyterian church in _Clolumbus, on Tuesday evening, December 23d, to determine tlie location of the " University," which they had resolved to establish under their joint control. There were present at this Convention about two hundred and thirty-five ministers and eleven elders as delegates, from the various churches, besides a great many others, not Officially, who, took a deep interest in all the doings of the assembly. The Synods first met in'a separate capacity, for the formation of their rolls, and then resolved to meet each other in Convention. The two stareams hence flowed together, and mingled into one. They made quite an imposing appearance, and were doubtless the largest Presbyterian body ever convened in Ohio;—the meetings of the General ' Assembly in Cincinnati, in 1845 and in 1850, not excepted. The following resolut...

For the Presbyterian Banner and Advocate. Religion; OB, LETTERS TO A FRIEND ON THE BOCTKINES AND DUTIES Of THE BIBLE. Explanation. The substance of these letters: was first delivered in an Inquiry Meeting. A company of youthful inquirers met weekly at my house; for- instruction, and what is here written was in substance communicated to them in conversations and addresses. Subsequently, an amiable young lady of my charge was taken sick, and _$_ius cut off from the Sabbath School, which she greatly prized, and from the house of God - For her benefit, what had before been spoken was written out, with additions, in the form of letters for her perusal; and these letters are now offered to the readers of this paper. There are in them some repetitions. TMs results from two causes : one, the circumstances under which they were written; the other and mainly, of design, to keep in view and impress more deeply some important points which come under consideration. Hence this is really deeme...

That ocean I is iEternity. Awhile we tread the earth, and live. and move amid terrestrial things, and seem, like them, to bloom, to ripen, and to die. Yet there is that within which makes us shudder and recoil when the thought arises of sinking to nothingness. Our body_s niay decay, our pulse relax, and our heart stop throbbing, yet we cannot bear the thought, that we shall cease to think. The breath of God, the vital spark that animates this tenement of clay, the soul of man, shall nevei die. _s Again we start and tremble._^Another thought arises, of vaster importance, still. What shall be our after state? We shrink from ttbn-existence, and long for immortal ity ; yet we >fear to tread the great unknown.

But thou, 0 Lord, like a great shield, Art round me for protection spread; My glory art thou now revealed, Uplifting my desponding head. 8. Unto the Lord my pray'r 111 make, He hears me from his holy hill; I laid me down and slept—-I waked, Because the Lord sustain'd me still. 4. I will not e'en ten thousand fear, Who set against me round about; • Arise, 0 Lord, and save me here, Who didst my foes aforetime rout. 6. Thou all my enemies didst smite, Upon the cheek-bone in thy might; The teeth of the ungodly foe, Thou, too, hast broken with thy blow. 6. Salvation to the Lord belongs, E'en my deliv'rance from their wrongB; And thus my pray'r shall ever be, Thy blessing may thy people see.

It is, painful to be under the necessity of, day and night as it were, importuning Christians to be mindful of Zion's wants , and prompt and liberal in their supply. To plead the Lord's cause is a privilege; but to have iov therein, is the result of success. The preparation ot a supply ot ministers lor tne churches, the sustentation of feeble congregations, the; distributing of religious books, the erection of church edifices for the poor, and the support ,_'of Foreign Missions, all claim increased contributions. These things are the appropriate worh of the Church—that is, of ministers and people. DOMESTIC MISSIONS. We have reports from Kentucky, by Robert Morrison; from Pennsylvania , by D.
