INTERPRETATION P _SCRlfpREff I The power of the _^ _prMcher, ffie pi||y jH the Christian, and Niil growth of' the Church, depend greatly on the degree to which they may be acquainted with the letter and spirit of Scripture. To be itn-:bued wit_^ _Uhe tru_6 (Qhri|fcian disposition, and to _liave the right state of mind and heart, is all-important for the proper understanding and application of the Word. Too great stress cannot be laid on these qualifications. Owing to the want of them, many great and learned men have made fatal mistakes in attempting to explain the " Lively Oracles," have lost the right way themselves, and have held out false Hghfs to others. _Irom this has sprung th e Rationalism that has blighted the Church in Germany, and that is now doing such great injury to many of the churches of Great Britain and our own country. _Tbe Bible should always be approached with a meek, humble, and prayerful disposition of mindj that we may be taught of God and kept from er...

A SABBATH REVIEW The general sentiment of this country is strongly in favor of the1 observance of the Sabbath in a becoming Christian manner, by both private citizens and government;; officials, i So prevalent is thisfeeling, that scarcely an individual of respectability could be found to defend the conduct of our commanders in engaging in battles on the, Sabbath, unless for the purpose of defence. And our reverses at Bull Hun and at Ball's _Bluffj in both of which engagements the Sabbath was needlessly disregarded, proved that nothing , was* to be gained, ,even in a great and good cause by setting aside the law of: God. The proclamation of General M'GLEEiiAN, with regard to a better observance of the Sabfeatl_^: was hailed with univers al approbationf,.,Th,e soldier has aright to the rest of the Sabbath, and God has a right to the worship of'the Sabbath iii: the camp, as _*we_11 as elsewhere.;i !f _.rrirf'l ¦¦- : ' . ¦ ¦_U;«> . . ; . _- _; -¦ ' ¦ ¦-: '¦ • ' ¦ ¦ ¦ ....

A PRESB1TERIAN INTELLIGENCE OFFICE Some two years ago, the Presbyterian zealously urged an arrangement in the Church, by which ministers of eminent or of peculiar qualifications, might be gotten into positions for which they were most fitted by their talents and acquirements. The motto was, _" The ,right man, in the right place." The plan was not very definitely pointed out, but it was intimated that the Board of Domestic Missions, or some other,, duly constituted agency might do a work with great advantage to Zion, by having all occurring vacancies filled by the right men. Our contemporary, in its issue of Nov. 23d, recurs to the thought, but with greatly more modesty. It now says: " The plan which we regarded as most practicable, was to make*' the Board of Domestic Missions the centre of intelligence, by'means of a record, which should embrace items of information concerning both the unemployed ministers and the vacant churches, as would be likely to _briqg them together."...

> i _i INTERPRETING PROVIDENCE. God's hand is in everything. Not a sparrow falls to &he ground without our Heavenl y _father. And God means to teach jinen Jby- his providences. He thus makes himself known, points out to men their duty, _instructs men as to their sms, and calls them to repentance and reformation. Some of the lessons taught by providences, are very plain—so plain that nothing short of prejudice and perversity can'fail to read them intelligently. Others are more obscure ; but_^cultivating a ' docile spirit, and wisely using the written Word, we may very generally know what God means by his dispensations. These _thoughts we commend to our correspondent, who writes to us as follows : '* ' Messrs. Editors":—Is it true that the man" who violates his contract with the church, always meets with some marked pecuniar y loss ? Several persons have told me that 'they ' never knew it to fail.' I was informed by an elder, with whom I once rode, that in his con...

SYMPTOMS OF A GROWING UNITY OF SENT1 _MENT ON THE SLAVERY OUEST10M. We have noticed, for several years, what seemed to us an approximating unity of sentiment, in the North , in the manner in which we are to treat the subject of Slavery. Abolitionism has much declined. Anti-Slavery principles have still more spread and strengthened. The feeling that Slavery ought not to be extended beyond its present limits, has advanced greatly. A determination not to interfere with it in the States where it exists, becomes firmer and firmer. Extremists are becoming molified; indifferentists are growing interested. Such approximations are noticeable in both the religious and.political world. Non-interference and Non-extension are advancing to the g rade of popular political doctrines; and the Churchep_, to a great extent, avoid any action of a denunciatory character. _> _, In confirmation of our views, we quote from the _Congregational Journal , of New-Hampshire, which has been one ...

* THE RIGHT OF SEARCH. The stopping of the English Steamer Trent , a private vessel, by the San Jdcinto, a government vessel of the United States, the searching of the Trent, and the taking therefrom of_the Confederate Commissioners, Messrs. Mason & Slidel, is a procedure the lawfulness of which we are deeply concerned to understand. If wrong, then reparation should be made, promptly; if right, the prisoners are to be held. If the English are disposed to make trouble they can quote from our diplomacy many denials of this right; but if they will be honest they must acknowledge that our denial referred to a time of peace. We have always admitted the judicious exercise of it by belligcrants when engaged in actual warfare, and we can quote, not only from their diplomatic correspondence, but from their authoritative writers on law, affirming the right of either of two belligerants to search private neutral vessels at sea, as being perfectly indisputable. Lord StowelIi, in t...

THE DIVINE RIGHT' OF KINGS Our worthy and acceptable European Correspondent, last week, gave the readers of the Banner a vivid' account of the crown'ing of the new King of'Prussia, intimating at the same time that this new King' held notions' somewhat lofty as to the right by •which he assumed the control of the reins of Empire. What these notions are, a single paragraph, will clearly set forth. On the day previous to his coronation, he called together the Prussian Diet and delivered hinfself of the following brief, but sufficiently expressive speech,: ((I desired to summon, the representatives of the Chambers to my presence even before the coro nation, and I thank you for having complied with my wish. The rulers of Prussia receive th _p ir crown from God; tto-morrow , therefore , ,1 shall take the, crown, from the Lord's table and place it on my head:> this Vs the signification'of the expression ,c King by the grace of God,' and therein lies the sanctity of the crown...

FALLING FROM GRACE It is not possible for a man to fall from a position which he never occupied. If by grace we understand the condition of sonship, resulting from a renewal in the Divine likeness and an adoption into the family of Christ, no . one who has been ever favored with the attainment has fallen therefrom. If any one seems to have fallen, it is an evidence that he never attained fully to the Gospel platform of regeneration. "Dr Nettleton/' " it is said, " once silenced a pertinacious caviller who was boasting that his future salvation was certain, for he had once been a Christian, and there could be no falling from grace. The Doctor pungently remarked that this doctrine ought to drive him to despair, for it taught if he had once been a Christian he would always continue so, and as he had not persevered in grace, it was quite certain he had never experienced it." Dr. Woodbridge, in discussing this subject, in a friendly conversation, said: " The difference, my frie...

A GOOD HIT. The following from an exchange illustrates in a very telling way the kind of preaching, * and writing too, admired by many who set themselves up as the,censors of fashion and the critics of _s style. The truth is, the kind of thing here ridiculed \has gone about far enough in the pulpit , on the rostrum, in the review, and in the newspaper. It is high time _,that a taste should be cultivated for the enjoyment of a vigorous style and thorough discussion on the part of those who would address the public. Discard not appropriate illustrations, nor undervalue the beautiful, nor try to quench the sparkling. But at the same* time demand substance—matter in .abundance and excellent in quality. But' to the extract: " A lady writing to her son at college ' ,'is represented as making the following statement: "tfDr. Mundt is giving a 'series of . sermons on the different kinds of wood used in building Solomon's Temple.1 They are very interesting, and he has such a flow of bea...
