III. ¦_foTe have presented, in two preceding Inbers, the relation of Sabbath Schools, ¦properly understood and conducted, to m Church—called for by the Baptismal _tenant, as a convenient and important Rmey in the hands of the Church, for disprging its obligation in the instruction of re children. [The great objection felt in many minds to Fe whole system of Sabbath Schools, exipt for the ignorant and destitute, is, that ley tend to supersede the higher work of _trental religious instruction. This, we lant, is an abuse which often'occurs; but 1 is in no way chargeable upon the system Keif. The Church, plainly, has a duty in p is respect to perform to her children, and p the world without.

For the Presbyterian Banner and Advocate. Eelision; OBLETTERS TO A FRIEND ON THE DOCTRINES AND DUTIES Of THE BIBLE. Letter VIL—~ Sin. By the law is the knowledge of sin.—Rom. vh ; 7. My Dear Friend :—In my last, I spoke of sin, and promised in this to say something about what sin is. Sin, what is it? What is sin? John declares, Sin. is the transgression of the law_; and Paul says, by the law, is the knowledge of sin.—1. John iii: 4; Rom. vii: 7. And here, let me say, that a definition of sin has sometimes been given, which includes but half the truth; and, hence, indirectly teaches a dangerous error. It has been said, that all sin consists m voluntary action; and, hence, sin has been defined as the voluntary transgression of known law. Of course, then, if this be correct, there is no such thing as original sin; for, according to this, all sin consists in acts—in the voluntary transgression of known law. Infants, then, are holy; or, at least, have no moral character; they hav...
