Reconciliation. Kobert Hall and Charles Simeon are well known among the lights of the evangelical interest in England, in the days when it costf something to be faithful to spiritual truth. These two servants of Christ, the former a Baptist, and the latter of the Established Church, both living at Cambridge, formed a _wairni friendship for each other. In time, however, a breach was made, which grew sogreatthatthey refused even to speak to each other. A reconciliation was at length effected by the Bev. Join Owen, Secretary of the British and Foreign Bible Society, whose memory is still fragrant in the English churches. The means used was the following plan, adopted after several others had been tried in vain. He wrote and left at the house of _«ft«K* thftsfi lines : " How rare that task a prosperous issue finds, Which seeks to reconcile discordant minds-How many scruples j-ise at passion's touch 1 This yields too little, and that asks too much ; 'Each _wishiBB each with others' e...

RELIGIOUS MOVEMENT/IH THE ARMY The following will be read with great interest by all Christians, and especially by those who have sons, brothers, and relatives in the army. A large number of pioms men are found in many of our regiments, and it is a very important matter to discover such, awaken them to watchfulness, and engage them in usefulness. Prudent, experienced, and godly chaplains on the ground are the best judges of what kind of organization is best adapted to the promotion of piety in those already Christians and for bringing others under the influence of the Gospel. : - f • _, ! The President of the meeting of chaplains, that adopted the subjoined5 paper, Rev. Thomas P. Hunt, is an Old-School Presbyterian minister, well known as an apostle of Temperance.

ffiE _UlSfRDMBNTALITY TO Bl USED B¥ A PASTOR U l)OIJiG_#IS WOftL t ? The work of a _pastor is to save men-_^to convert them, edify them, and fit them for heAven. This he is to do, for God. To this end he is sailed, of God and man, ordained, installed and made a pastor; and if he has not actual success, his labor is lost, or perhaps worse than lost. And yet, of himself, he cannot convert nor sanctify, a soul. God can do this. God does do it. He enlightens, convinces, renews, purifies, saves j and all this in the execution of his own predetermined purpose. But all this he tloes, not in the way of a miracle./ He ¦does it by making means effectual—means of his own establishing. He communicates knowledge, awakens hopes and fears, and thus incites the sinner to flee from wrath _aad lay hold on life. ¦: - God, then, employs knowledge in the Baving of men.

EMIGRATION AND fBE IRISH FAMINE. Since the breaking out of the war, the Irish have shown less disposition than usual to emigrate to this country. The falling off has been considerable, thou gh it is likely soon to. be revived. The population which we have received from tb© Emerald Isle has contributed immensely to the wealth and power of the country. A large portion, of the -labor which _consiiuets yailroads and canals, and builds houses, is performed by Irish immigrants. Many of our seamen/ mechanics, farmers, and _tradesmen, are from the sarnie country, as are also quite a number of our politicians and clergymen And our soldiers, both in the regular and volunteer armies are, numerously,' Irishmen, or the sbns of Irishmen.

THE SYNOD OF NEW-YORE AND NEW-JEBSEY AND THE PRESIDENT. That Christians, whether ministers, elders, or private members of the Church, have the same rights j personal, social, and public, as infidels have, is not to be disputed. If then worldly men may meet together and deliberate on affairs which concern them as members of the community, why, may not Christians also ? If lawyers, physicians, merchants, mechanics, manufacturers, laborers, bankers, &c, - &e., may address Government, why should ministers and elders be denied the privilege ? It is true that when met in Ecclesiastical Council we think, " ordinarily, that it does not become those who bear office in the Church to speak,, either by way of advice or reproof, of governmental affairs. Let fbem adjourn and go home, and mingle with their fellow-citizens, and thus take their part in their country's affairs. But there are occasions in which they, not only may speak, but should speak—occasions when religion,...
