The Missionary Weekly. Vol. X. Letter From Boston. 1»Y W. H. ItOGEIIS. In last week's letter mention was made of the fate of Paine Memorial Hall, and now Parker Memorial Hall has also come to grief. Built under the auspices of the Twenty-eighth Congregational Society, of which Mr. Parker was virtually the founder, this hall has recently been transferred to the Benevolent Fraternity of Churches, a society founded on moral ideas rather than on religious teaching. I am aware that it is claimed that the above Fraternity of Churches is an outgrowth of Parker's teachings, but it remains true that the society, which was organized to give Mr. Parker a hearing, has become defunct, and has sold the hall which was built in Mr. Parker's honor. Mr. Parker proposed to demolish the foundations of Evangelical Christianity, but you have the outcome. There is plenty of religion of the Parker type in Boston, but it exists in a very nebulous condition —a destructive rather than a constructive force. **...

2 The Unconscious Power of Christian Life. Mt.vi 13-14. BY M. J. FEKGUHSON. To a Christian is to be a peer of the realm of Heaven. No (higher honor is accessible to men. It does not make them ■counsellors of God, but does constitute them executors of His will. Righteousness is God's power (for the ordering ot this world; but abstract righteousness is powerless. It must become perHoual, and it can become so only in the lives of men. For this reason Jesus declares men to be "the salt of the earth." In them the divine life becomes concrete and visibls, and, becoming so, it is the constraining and conserving force of God in the world. This is the fact broadly stated in Mt. v: 13-14. Therein no means o1 "measuring tim-amount'of this energy that becomes effective; nor is there need of any. It is enough for us to know that the presence ■of Christians in the world furnishes the divine explanation of ■whatever moral progress and triumph of godliness we behold. .'Nor is it too much to say tha...

He taught also the lesson that those who gave up every thing for his sake, and the gospel's, should receive an abundant reward in this world and in the world to come, eternal life. He again tells the disciples of the sufferings and insults that awaited him, his death and his resurrection, John and James asking him for places of lienor in his kingdom, he again teaches them the lesson of humility.

March 14,1889. Mountain Sifting:*. BY CHAB. 8. LONG. If the "Sittings" for the present .seem to be a little controversial in their character it is only because of the spirit of investigation which is anxious to arrive at the truth for the truth's sake. I like the spirit of Bro. Speucer's articles, however much I may differ from his conclusions, and I believe that a friendly and Scriptural comparison of views on such an important subject as the one under consideration can ouly result in good. I do not know of a more important question than the "divinity of our Lord Jesus Christ," because it lies at the very foundation of our holy religion. While I did not think Bro. Spencer was a Trinitarian, in the orthodox meaning of that term, yet I could not understand how his views on the "Godhood of Christ" would bear any other construction. If, as he- says, "Jesus is the true God," we have God the Father and God the Son, for, if the Father sent the Son, then he himself is not the Son whom he s...

6 "How Readest Thou ?" BY J. L. MCDONAIiI). Some years ago I na>' a puzzlecard of very wonderful construction. It contained a beautiful landscape view. Towering trees, green, grass-covered hills, wild, romantic ravines, abrupt, dan-gerous-looking ledges, undulating, river-veined valleys—all these, and more, too, iu seemingly perfect outlying beauty. What struck me most forcibly was this. The picture seemed to have been made for, and only for, the landscape view. Ninetynine men out of every hundred would have taken it up, admired it, and cast it down again without discovering the mysterious, yet finely modeled, features of a sleepinglbeauty. Thehundredth man would likely have done the same, but for a line assuring him that in it was something to be revealed. After having been told of the surface-veiled beauty, I spent some time in looking before I found the object of my search, so prone am I to look upon what appears to be all. When my "eyes were opened," however, the grea...

Makch 14, 1889. Valley of Virginia Notes. BY J. I). HAMAKKK. Our meeting at Woodstock closed on Wednesday night. Bro. J. A. Spencer continued it as long as seemed needful; two additions, one reclaimed and one immersed. The church and Sun-day-school both seem in ycood condition, which reasons well for their future prosperity. There was some flinching when I told them that if I was going to subscribe a human creed 1 would want one that was made yesterday, for the reason that the increased light of the nineteenth century could make a better one than was possible to the best instructed of four hundred years ago. We have many creedbound men and women who have not the knowledge of the "liberty that we have in Christ:" and others who know, but lack the courage of their convictions, which would break the shackles and set them free. Many still carry the rock in one end of the sack and the corn in the other, for the reason that their fathers did that way. They think thisa good rule in religio...

The Missionary Weekly. Vol. X. Letter From Boston. BY W. H. ROGERS. The readers of the Missionary Weekly will surely be pleased with the clear, forcible and candid presentation of the "negro issue" by Bro. A. B. Chandler in last week's issue. Whatever else remains unsettled, it seems quite certain that the people of the North do not generally comprehend the real difficulties that beset this question. While expressing fears that the facts, as given by the Monday lecturer, might be correct, it should be remembered that your correspondent has never expressed any endorsement of Mr. Cook's treatment of this important question. The education and Christianization of the negro must be slow progress, but any solution of the question that ignores this process will hardly be the final one, and here I leave the subject. »*»»»* Bro. F. P. Power indulges in what must be considered a sort of tirade against Mr. Cook and his lectures. Bro. Power is one of our first men, deservedly esteemed and belov...

2 Mountain Sifting*. BY CHAS. S. LONG. I » 1 must confess to no little surt>rise when I read liro. Spencer's ast article on the "Godhood of Christ." I had expected him to throw some light on thequestiou, propounded by me, concerning what he said about the human nature of the Savior praying to his divine nature. Instead of that he occupies at least half his space with a most convincing argument ou the humanity of hrist. But that is not the question at issue, and I believe just as firmly as he in the perfect Manhood of Christ, because the testimony on that point is overwhelming. It might be well to see just how far we do agree along the line of our investigation. 1. We believe firmly in the divinity of our Savior's mission and office; that he spoke with divine authority, and that he was the bright image of the divine perfections. 2. We believe that God dwelt in him, manifested himself through him, taught the people by him, so that in hearing him they heard him that sent him...

March 21,1889. The True Man. BY I. A. THAYEB. To avoid the extremes of sensualism and asceticism and find the true-course of the Christian with reference to this world, we need to remember two things: First, that our spiritual nature is the real man that is to survive death and find its real object of existence beyond the present life. Second, that all the things of this world, .even this life itself, are given to us in trust for this higher nature and the attainment of its goal in eternity. Hence no man has a right to use the gifts of this world for any other purpose. But that he has a perfect right to use anything beneath the sky that in his best judgment will promote that end. Planting within us transcendent abilities, endowing us with the wealth of the world, holding before us the light of tbis great design of earth-life, the Creator gives us one assurance. "Whatsoever a man soweth that shall he also reap," and sends usforth with the freedom of the universe. In the light of thes...

6 "As an Eagle." (Deut. xxxii: 11-12.) The eagle, o'er her young presiding, "Stirs up their quiet rest; 1 Breaks in upon their sure confiding Within their rock-built nest; And taking them upon her wings, She bears aloft those vexed things. One moment on her pinions keeping The eaglets, weak and small; The next, she turns, and downward keeping, Though helpless, leaves them all To battle and to try their wings, And make themselves not helpless things. She leaves them; but she still is eyeing Their progress, weak and slow; And when one falters in its flying, The mother-bird doth know: And quickly, on her outstretched wings, She takes again these tired things. O soul! the Lord thy faith is trying When He stirs up thy rest: And He would ever have thee flying Toward what is good and best. If thou should falter, His strong wing Is "underneath" thee, faithless thingl -Sunday-School Times. That Sunday-school Lesson. Studying the lesson is very much like painting a picture.
