Tie Great pbjeet, The great object of Sunday School teaching was the conversion of the young mind and heart to the knowledge and service of Jesus Christ. The time was when a different object was contemplated—: namely, simple instruction in reading and writing, and loading the memory _viith facts. What'object, however, could be so noble and sublime as that in which the humblest young man or woman could become a co-pastor and fellow-worker with Christian ministers in leading souls to Christ? What so noble as to take' young, ragged children from some of the purlieus of this great town, unprotected , by human eare, unloved by pa rental hearts, and to bring them to the feet pf Christ! _^ Which ,was the, greatest man, Sir Henry Havelock going to the relief of Lueknpw_^pr Sit* Henry Havelbek the simple lay Biptist' preaclier I That ' %as a point of casuistry which some persons might be at a loss to determine,; but to his (Dr. Archer's) mind, it was clear " and obvious that Henry Havelo...

A COUNTRY WORTH SAVING. — DOMESTIC MISSIOM. The ardor with which multitudes hare flocked to our National standard, in the day of danger, and the readiness with which capitalists have tendered their millions of money for the public use, prdves that we have a country worth saving. The cost of saving" it, both in life and treasure, is likely to be immense; but, by a patriotic people, the sacrifices are promptly made. This shows their appreciation of a government of law, and of National unity. They have a country worth saving. And they do not appreciate it too highly. It is worth all that is consecrated to its preservation. But if our country in its social institutions, its trade, commerce, laws, personal security, &c, is so valuable, what is it worth as to its religious advantages•? The value of an open Bible, and a free religion, none can estimate. These are not endangered by the rebellion_; and we do not allude to them with a view more highly to stimulate publie senti...

DEATH OF THE REV, ALLAN D. CAIPBELI, D J. Thousands of our _readers will be startled to learn that the Bev. Au&an D. Camp-BELii, D.D., died at his residence , near Manchester_^ a short distance below this city, at four o'clock last Saturday morning, after a brief but severe illness. He was in the seventieth year of .his age, and during this long life had occupied prominent and very responsible positions in the Church and in the community. Few men among us were so well known, and but few had so many friends. . He was a native of the city of Baltimore, where his father was a successful merchant , a devotedly pious man,? a member of the Associate Reformed Church , and one of the liberal founders of that church which in after years departed from its early faith, and followed the lead of the gifted but erratic Bev. John Mason Duncan, D.D. After passing through a regular College course, Allan D. Campbell studied theology with the celebrated Bev. John M. Mason, D. D., whom he...

VERY DISCOURAGING It js very discouraging to a minister to see but few members of the church come to the weekly prayer-meeting. Perhaps he Bas a large and attentive congregation on the Sabbath—perhaps not more than a dozen or a score' are at the prayer-meeting. And some of that small number seem to come from a sense of propriety, rather than from a desire to meet with Grod. It is very discouraging to the minister who desires to see fruit from his labors. He knows that no abiding impression is made on the minds of such of his hearers as habitually absent themselves from the place where prayer is wont to be made. Who ever Knew an emi nently pious man or woman who habitually neglected the prayer-meeting ? It is very diseburaging to a minister to be compelled to believe, that a large number of the members of his church have no real sympathy with him in his work. They maylike him as a man and as a minister, but they have no real sympathy with him in Ms efforts to save men. They w...
