£f_*tf£ THI YOICE Of SFMNU. BY _^AMES _KlS _tlNE. The blu*-Wn1 _slnga on yonder Sprig, Just budding into vernal bloom, The trumpet tone, the magic lay, That calls the flowers from their tomb. For when the silvery voice is heard, Fresh blossoms shower on the trees, And sings the happy woodland bird, Borne thither on the southern breeze. Then from the oozy hill-side near, The tender flowers deign to peep, Gemmed with the morning's glittering tear, That gathered in the hoar of sleep. Bat When the genial sun shall pour Fresh glory from the summer skies, . Sweet _scenf shall hallowing hover o'er* _Thf bloom, and to the heavea rise. And then perchance some seraph blest Shall breathe thy perfumed incense there, And sigh that thou art doomed to rest, Where rudely blows the blast of care. But ah S how many a pensive eye Has eaught the beauty of that flower, And turned a grateful look on high, To Him, the aU_*ereating power. And then perchance that flower's scent, Has wafted to the sick...

VENICE. If a spark of that old chivalric fire which in the Middle Ages so often converted" the soldier into a knight and the knight into a disinterested hero, and so led men to do battle for the oppressed —if an inkling of this sacred feeling and force surviveditfour busy; commercial; luxurious, and egotistic age,-—the spot towards which such champions of humanity would hasten, would be Venice. The scorpion of Austrian tyranny driven out of Lombardy,—powerless in the States of the Church, and" threatened in Hungary,—concentrates her spite and cruelty upon Venice. Every week scores of the best citizens of that glorious old city are transplanted in chains to distant northern ortresses for the identical crime that made the British government in 1776 set a price upon the _Vonrls nf Rjiniiip.l Adams and'John Hancock. The wrongs of the outraged people ot Venice invoke redress;—that Venice so familiar and dear to readers of English through the works of Otway, Shakspeare, and Byron, and...

_xsmspattiee oi jxmm A! long and_^_storniy session of our General Assembly of Iowa is drawing to a close. I say, stormy session, meaning thereby, that there has been much political excitement, in perfect good keeping with our national Congress. A requisition from Governor Letcher of Virginia for Barclay Goppochj a citizen of Iowa, as _^ connected with the Harper's Ferry Affair, being denied on the ground of informality, has increased the' agitafidn of party feeling here, already excited by Governor Kirkwood? s allusion to the Harper's Ferry matter. The young man Ooppoch, of Quaker descent, is represented as on a decline with consumption, the son of an aged widow, and so appeals strongly to the sympathies of our citizens, Who generally would rejoice to find the vengeance of the sovereign State of Virginia satisfied with the past victims of death, one of which was a son of this aged widow. Still, it would seem that this is not the case, since a new requisition, in due form, hasjbeer...

_JEStTS CHRIST UNCHANGEABLE. In the Scriptures, Jesus Christ is affirmed to hd unchangeable, " the same yesterday, and to-day, and forever/' This unchangeableness or essential eternity of God's Son is a great thought. It outlines, with -wonderful distinctness, Christ's person, and expresses, with amazing exactitude, some pifomioenfc features of Christ's work. <¦ ..... Npte, first, how it outlines the person of Christ. If eterhalj_^jgajiautoble, Unchangeable, Jesus Christ is something more than man. Man is a creature of change. .His.body is subject to constant waste and repair. Mis condition, is one of ceaseless vioisMtude, _fteilrfjt yielding to sickness, joy to sorrow, life tdi_^eath. His intellect is ever acted on b y_> new ohiqoia of per<jeption. His emotional _najr ture is aflil tpnls _jfegtless as: the sea. He is never two mdniehfs' together the same. But Jesus Christ ts the same always. Whatever, then, Jesus Christ is, he is _#_f mere man. ; , Nor is h...

_DEK0MIKATI0HALISM. Nationality, a half century since, was imperilled in many of the states of Europe. Especially was this true of that belt of Scandinavian and Teutonic commonwealths _^ which lie between the great _Russian empire on the east, and France on the west, and the Latin nations farther south. Volcanic France, with the out-bursting of her own fires, had dissolved her time-honored, but time-worn institutions. The molten stream rolled down upon her neighbors. In Italy and Spain patriotism was a lost sentiment. The national vitality was too low for resistance. Italy and Spain became appendages of France, But, in the Scandinavian and Teutonic stocks, patriotism lived. Though they quivered and bent before the flood, they did not thus yield. Their leaders saw the danger and the remedy. Their only hope was in the power of*_an idea—the sentiment of nationality—patriotism_^ Instantly _^_verj thing that would kindle or strengthen the national selfconsciousness was seized upon ...

_^'AinffALS OF THE PO0B." . "THE ORPHAN." It willbe remembered/by those who read the "Annals," that this young woman's ease was presented some two or three months since. It attracted a good deal of attention, and enlisted the sympathy and good offices of one of the ladies whose faith and works have gone hand in hand, unobtrusively, but efficiently, with us from the beginning. We now recur to it because of the interest that attaches to her history since our first interview with her. We think this may be safel y done, inasmuch as neither herself nor any one else, except those who have taken a personal interest in her welfare,.have any knowledge or intimation of her identity withH The Orphan." After being supplied with suitable cjotbing, she commenced attending our evening meetings, and soon became overwhelmed with a sense of her sins. There was no mistaking, the depth of her conviction and distress. We instructed her as best we could, and steadily pointed her to Christ as able...

THE CHURCH _EXTENSION COMMITTEE. Our readers will rejoice with us in the announcement that the CJmrch Extension Committee is able to meet all approved applications. It follows from this announcement, that all our churches that need aid, and ought to have it, can now obtain it, either through the Home Missionary Society, one of its branches, or through the (Dhureh Extension Committee. If any reflections will arise in our readers * minds as they read these words, one of which is that it goes pretty far towards settling the Home Missionary question. The Church will have aid for her children, and so she says—Ant viam inveniam out faeiam. It might be well, among other suggestions, in relation to the next Assembly, to consider whether there: is not danger of doing too much as well as doing too little. We should keep our eye on the substance of things, not on names Or shadows. Why not let every church, and Presbytery, and Synod, have their choice as to the method of carrying on the...

" . ¦ _"* PHILADELPHIA IN_^ _ITIREIL• _; The Pennsylvania Inquirer, one of the oldest and most respectable of our city dailies, appears in a complete new dress, a la mode of the popular journals of New York. It has an air of elegance and beauty that is attractive. A large double sheet, filled with every thing that every body desires to read for two cents, is an experiment which the Gothamites think cannot succeed in provincial towns like Boston and Philadelphia; but we trnst that Mr. Harding will be able to demonstrate that some things maybe done in Philadelphia as well as New York. Thirty years' experience has given courage to doff the name of the Commonwealtn, to emerge from the woods, and take the more local name of the township. , » The Inquirer has always been a fair, reliable, and dignified paper, and we hope it will not deem it necessary to pattern after the prevailing vices of its New York contemporaries, and be-r come in any degree a _^ pan derer to _,a vitiated tas...

Protestants in Austria.—Positive information has been received that the Hungarian Protestants will never accept the Imperial octroi, "but{will _ctTn tinue to insist on their right to settle the internal affairs of their Church and schools in the way determined by the Synods which were held at _Pesth and Buda in the year 1791." Late intelligence from Austria states that Imperial permission has been granted to the Protestant Consistories in Hungary for them to assemble in Conference and decide on the means to be proposed to Government for the redress of their grievances. And a despatch from "Vienna of the 13th says the reforms promised in the Ministerial programme are about to be granted. Each province will receive a Constitution and administration of its own.- :
