for the Presbyterian Banner and Advocate. Bible Narratives.—No. 21. THE FAMINE.—GBN. XII: 10. The providence of Jehovah toward his children often seems as wrathful as toward the world of the ungodly; but the apparent wrath is only the approaching shadow ot his love. The clear sky mast be darkened with clouds, or no showers will water the thirsty land. Man's earthly attachments mast be broken, and the tstreams of worldly joy must be failing, or he will nob desire the waters of the river of God. Thus it was with the " Friend of God," and the " Father of the Faithful." Great Cjrr _§ik faith could be attained only by great trials. The privations of a stranger, almost an exile, are not enough; Abraham's trust in God must "be sorely tried by famine. "Whether it was the scarcity of pasture, or the hostility of the natives of the land, that eaused him to leave Sichem for a mount twenty miles to the South, we are not informed. But we are told that the famine soon became so grievous in ...

Mysterious Providences. A correspondent of the Country Gentleman tells something about " Mysterious Providences," which is worthy of a careful reading: " What a mysterious providence," say the farmers' wives, as they come together to look for the last time on one of their number j and they glance pityingly at .the bereaved husband, and the large family of children, varying in size from the tall youth or the blooming maiden, down to the little child. Truly it is a mystery that she should be taken away in the prime of life, when her children need her watchful care and counsel more than ever before. But let us examine into the life led by most farmers' wives, and see if we can gain a clue to the "mysterious providence" whicli so often leaves the family circle desolate. "WttY _flW _WfrWf _^ C? _^jJUi _jUJ _E _^iUliftf A young farmer marries, and for a ye3r or two Mr wife can do very well without help, but by-and-by his work is too mucb for him alone, and he must hire a hand; and o...

_Stwniifo The Weather and its Sigiis. There is no subject of more importance, and yet there is none with which men of science, and others, are so superficially acquainted, as that indicated in the above caption. The heat of Summer and the cold of Winter, the rain and the snow, the thunder and the lightning, the hurricane and the gentle breeze, how: many mingled associations of pleasure and grief are connected with these. Our enjoyments, yea, our very existence, it may be said, are dependent on these operations of nature, which we call the weather. Sometimes, as in 1854, the clouds will refuse their refreshing showers for a long _pe - riod, and over extensive tracts of country the grass withers, and the corn and wheat fields become parched and barren ; the lowing kine perish for want of the water-brook?, and then famine comes and desolates many once happy homes. Sometimes, again, the clouds will pour down their torrents for long periods, and the floods will come and sweep res...

JtorkaL WMtfieid_, or the Great Revival of 1740. Since the dark ages of a thousand years, there are four epochs of the revival of religion which it is well to bear in mind : The great Reformation of the sixteenth century in the days of Luther, who died 1546. ; . " ¦ . ¦ • : ' -I -.,_' . The pure work of God of the seventeenth century, which gave an evangelical literature to the world, in _£he, days of Owen, of whom died in 1691. The " great Awakening" about 1740, in the days of Doddridge, Whitfield, Wesley_; President Edwards, Brainerd, and the Tennents, bringing hundreds of thousands to Christ. x- _- The revival ofvital religion about the year 1800, especially;,iri our own country, which perhaps may be said to have culminated in 1831, and gave birth to the great missionary enterprise; giving us our Alexander , Grifiin, Samuel J. Mills , an_* a host of pillars of the Church, now rapidly passing from our sight. Each of these wonderful displays of Divine grace was preceded by a lo...

From the Child's Paper. The Stolen Melon. It was vacation, "and Eben and _Bobert had gone to the city with father. During their absence the boys proposed a pio-nic to Clark's point, in honor of two old associates, now collegians, on a vacation visit home. I was the youngest, and perhaps a little proud of my invitation. My mother prepared me cake and sandwich for the occasion. As I was down in the garden , I noticed Eben*s large watermelon, now folly ripe. It bad jfxrr !|e fang been the object of his special care. "0, if I only had that melon," thought I; " none of the boys will have a melon to carry." This I wished not only once, twice, three times, but many times, until I could not help thinking of it. " What's on your mind, f" asked Bill Parsons, as we walked up street together. " Something," I replied. " Tell me; I won't tell," he said eoaxingly; and I told him how I wanted Eben's melon,, for the pic-nie. " Capital S" cried Bill, who was fond of melons; " let's have it." ...
