The Bible Style of Preaching. Where the notion that the talent employed in - Ghristiau toaetoDg--ottgntr ta~Ue within a limited and humble range; without any high flights, any deep soundings, any glowing langu*dge, any metaphorical illustrations, or any masculine argument; can have originated, one would be at a loss to learn, were the Bible alone, Old Testament and New, tbe source of our information. There we see the power of the Holy Spirit, not allying itself with one order of mind or with one stamp of composition, tamed down to a standard of properness or consecrated by the aesthetics of some small and proper men, but using every faculty that God ever gave to the human soul—every faculty of thought, illustration, and speech—hallowing by its fire all genius, all life, and all nature—touch every thing and illuminating every thing; so that there is not one scene of domestic life, and not one object of God's outer world, to which the tongue of the Psalmist or Prophet, or the Grea...

The Synod of Allegheny—Meeting at Butler, Pa. The town of Butler, some thirty-two miles North of Pittsburgh, is pleasantly located, and surrounded by a fine agricultural district; it is the seat of justice for the county of the same name. The number of inhabitants is over fifteen hundred. There is a Presbyterian, an Associate Reformed, an English Lutheran,-a Methodist, an Episcopal, and a Eoman Catholic church. In addition to the Common Schools, there is a County Academy, under the care of the Eev. Mr. White, of the Ep iscopal Church; and also the *" Witherspooo "Institute," under the# care of the Presbytery of Allegheny, of which the Rev. John Smalley is now Principal.

' Reformed Presbyterians. In our issue of August 2d, we noticed the Minutes of the Reformed Presbyterian Synod (Old Side). In giving the statistics we followed copy. The number of Communicants, as we found them reported, was 3710. We found, however, as we distinctly stated, that " quite} a number of congregations had not reported their list of Communicants." The monthly journal of the Church, for September, took exceptions to our statement, and affirmed that the number of Communicants was much larger, but it did not tell us how many they were, nor give us any means of definite knowledge. Now, the editor of that journal, in a private' note, writes: " As nearly as can be ascertained and known, you are warranted to say that the number of Communicants in the Reformed Presbyterian Church in the United States exceeds ten thousand." "We are thankful for the information. We are at a loss however to conceive how the respected Synod,-wl»pee-Miniitea we examine,, can be satisfied with report...

Hil '- The Higher Law. In a letter from Dr. Scott, of San Francisco, published in the Banner and Advo~ cate of Sept. 20, occur the words: " She (the Presbyterian Church) knows no North, no South, no /higher law'—she takes the Constitution of the United States as it is, and the States as they are." A correspondent takes exception, and desires to see the matter corrected. The words do appear harsh and erroneous, when severed from the context. But the very next sentence shows that the writer did not mean to say that the Presbyterian Church repudiates the Bible , nor that she places any human enactment above it, or in comparison with it. " She," ¦ he says, " makes the Bible as it is, without the traditions of elders, or priests, or rabbis, the only rule of, faith. She teaches that * God alone is Lord of the conscience , and hath left it free from the doctrines and commandments of men, which are in ant THING CONTRARY to his Word.''" This, we had thought, was sufficientl y explicit; and...

Honorary Degree. It will be remembered that Lafayette College, at the Commencement in July, conferred the degree of Doctor of Divinity on the Rev John Wier, of River Terrace, Islington, London. Tho Banner of Ulster, in making the announcement, says: "Mr. Wier, who has now been for upwards of twenty years an ordained minister of the Gospel, is intimately known and universally respected by the ministers of the Presbyterian Church in this country; and in Newry, and our own town of Belfast especially, where he labored with so much acceptance, the announcement of the honor conferred upon him will be received with cordial satisfaction as a testimony at once to his character as a Divine and his success as a writer in the fields of religious literature. Mr. Wier is well known as the author of the 'Lectures on Romanism/ the greater portion of which have been stereotyped by the Religious Tract Society of London; and »s a writer of a considerable number of papers which have been adopted, and...

] __EDis_eoj^acxi?Q^teinpiatm gja. Change. _.. The General Convention of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States, which holds its sessions trienniall y, was to meet in St. Luke's church, Philadelphia, on the 1st inst. This bod y is a bond of union to the denomination in this country ; but its powers are very limited. There is here no Archbishop to rule the Church. The Convention is a partial substitute , but it comes a great way short of a Primate's prerogative. It is an assemblage of bishops and laymen, and is rather a Presbyterian feature assumed by Episcopacy, in conformity with the uniform Protestant spirit in the land, and with the civil institutions of the country, and the popular sentiment. The very limited powers entrusted to this Convention, however, is found to leave the Church, as a whole, subject to some great evils. There is a defective discipline, and a want of uniformity in some important things, whieh prevent the denomination from exhibiting a unity su...
