This is well) it is both a duty and a privilege ; but do not depend on your prayers ;_j depend only upon Christ.

Brother Leonard :—Another year has closed of Bethel labor among our eight thousand boatmen, properly belonging to the active commerce of Pittsburgh. frequently, with the prophet, have I said, " Who hath believed our report ? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed ?"

©ngmal ._loetrg Lines to a Lady in Prospect of Death BY W. P. TBITSWORTH. My soul ia grieved to hear you mourn, Though sickness does oppress you; Your pains are not what once were borne By Him who does distress y_^u. 'T i8 for your good this grief is sent, ' T is for your comfort given; Oh! why do yon so much lament, Your home ia high in heaven. _Ilaro you rich treasures here on earth. Among the helpless living, You value more in point of worth Than all the wealth of heaven ! 'T is needful, then, you stand in awe, For fear you 're not forgiven; # For none who cling to mammon's law Are fit to enter heaven. There is a dread o'erhangs the grave, The living don't deny it; An awful gloom on Jordnn_'s wave * But Christians firm defy it. Though in the floods you seem to sink, By storm and tempest driven; 'Tis bat a sign you're at the brink, The very gate of heaven. Though young, you may be called away, Awhile in earth to slumber; 'T is but to wake from night to day, "Where cares ...

For the Presbyterian Banner and Advocate. Sitting ia Church in Time of Prayer. We fear that this habit, which we cannot but regard as irreverent, is on the increase, and that it prevails to a great extent already. We are not now about to discuss the propriety or -impropriety of the custom, but to remark that not long since, the writer was present . at a meeting of ministers, at whicha1 sermon was preached spe cially to them, and at the time of the first prayer, only six besides myself rose. Now this was in New England, where we had expected better things. And on examining an old volume, published at Boston, 1725, containing, among other matters, the action of the Synod of Cambridge, 1679, to which two questions were proposed; 1. What are the evils that have provoked the Lord to bring his judgments on New England ? 2. What is to be done so thatthtise evils may be reformed I In answer to the first, under the fourth head, they say_* _<_f There is great _paoFANENESS in resp...

Lay Labors.—The Puritan Recorder says: " We have an illustration of the antagonism between Lay Preaching and depressing errors in the customs that prevailed in our Congregational churches; in this vicinity, at the time when Unitarianism had come into possession of all the churches in Boston but one. At the date of 1804, aft w members of the Olo!f South' Church—those that afterwards formed the nucleus of Park Street Church—desired to unite in sustaining a prayer-meeting; but they found a diificulty, in that none of them had ever ventured to lead in social prayer. When, therefore,, they could not have a prayer-meet ing, they formed a " Society for Religious Improvement," at the meetings of which they read the Scrip tures, and engaged in religious conversation. But after about a month they were able to pray, Thus had the sweep of blighting error in Boston so repressed the evangelical'efforts of laymen, that there were none in all our chflrches to be found even to conduct a; prayer-...

The Present Position of the Temperance Movement. In a late number we adverted to some troubles in the temperance ranks of New York, and to the fact that one of the newspapers of immense circulation had declined from farther participation, at present, in the support of prohibition, to which it has been, and is ardently attached; on account of _alleged political tendencies on the part of the leaders of the temperance movements in that State. Indeed, tbe minds of men in many of the States where zealous efforts have been put forth to arrest this terrible evil, but where unexpected difficulties have sprung up and reaction taken place with most disastrous results, seem greatly at a loss to know what measures are to be adopted to save the young from the effects of the intoxicating bowl, and to rescue, if possible, many who seem on the very verge of the drunkard's grave. The whole subject is of the greatest importance to every Christian, and to every philanthropist. The evils of d...

the case, would be bad enough; but, alas, they are not there alone. And what makes the matter still worse, is the flippancy with which the whole subject is treated in ordinary conversation, and by many of the secular newspapers, and reviews, and popular lecturers, as if there was to be an effort to cast ridicule on all attempts in the way of controlling this great adversary of the human family. Now, what is to be done? Must we again organize the old fashioned Temper ance Societies I uan we arouse general attention to the whole subject ? Shall we besiege Legislatures for new prohibitory or restrictive laws ? or shall we depend solely on the power of moral suasion, and the gradual effects of the blessed Gospel ? Or rather, shall we not employ all these various means ? In the meantime, let ministers, parents and teachers strive to save those under their care, and upon whom they may have influence, from looking upon thewine when it is red.

Western.
