It is advocated, sometimes explicitly and,
often impliedly, by men who are set as
watchmen for the defence of society from
the incursions of moral and religious evil-
and yet it virtually admits the claims of
infidelity. It is precisely the principle
which was preached by sceptics of the last
century, and was, in truth the fruitful
parent of that direful progeny of evilfshich

horrors of the French Rvolution. Let the

enough fur zeal and motive enough for
exertion in that cause, without elevating
intelligence to the post which religion alone
is adequate to maintain; without sup-
planting the wisdom of Christ, who teaches
us that we must become as little children
in order to enter his Kingdom, for that
knowledge of the world which puffs up and
nourishes pride instead of humility;'without
substituting the light of reason for the
dictates of conscience; without commending
the diffusion of intelligence as something
more important to the interests of society
and individual happiness than the cultiva-
tion of charity and the fear of God. That
healthy moral sentiment, which is a
perennial fountain sends forth fertilizing
streams through all the fields of human
action, and imparts vigor to every enterprise
of benevolence, springs from 4 "faith in

fering the prayer, and in indulging the
hope, that the incense thus rising to the
throne of God may, by his blessing,
burst forth over the guilty millions of
our world, without limit and without re-
straint, in Heavenly benediction; its
sanctifying influences be felt in all hu-
man institutions; mingle itself with all
social elements, regulate all the pulsa-
tions of feeling, consecrate all political
movements, exalt all the productions of
sincere and learning, purify every intel-
lectual and moral enterprise, and com-
municate Heaven's peace and gladness to
every nation, every family and every
heart? Can we employ a more powerful
consideration to move the Church, its
ministry and its members to undertake
and vigorously prosecute this glorious
work commanded by Christ, blessed of
God, and indispensable to man?
"Verily I say unto you, whoever shall not
receive the Kingdom of God as a little child,
he shall not enter therein."
To a Christian mind the world is one
great seminary, in which immortal souls
are to be trained for higher and nobler
scenes. The eyes of the infant are opened
to the external world in a true primary
school-a school devised and established by
infinite wisdom. It is the family institu-
tion. Children have souls and bodies, and
there they both may be cared for. They
are connected with two worlds, and there
they may be trained for both. Two per-
sons are appointed by DivineProvidence to
perform this task of training. Two are
united to the little and dependent being by
indissoluble ties-two teachers whose love
no restiveness of the child can alienate-
whose assiduity no weariness can overcome;
to whom all. sacrifices for his good are a
pleasure-who receive a reward in their
own hearts for every effort. Perfect de-
pendence on one side, and perfect love and
sympathy on the other, combine to give al-
most omnipotent force to the instruction
which is imparted. The family circle is
the nursery for Heaven. There the infant
heart is moulded in its moral sensibilities
there the sympathies and affections all
germinate and bud-and there all the ties
are formed and strengthen daily, which
bind the little pupil toman and to God, to
time and to eternity. In secret, from the
world's prying gaze, under the eyes of
those only whom God appoints, the tender
plant grows up, soon to be transplanted to
the Paradise of God, or to be cast out and
withered forever. There, in the family
circle, is not only the home of the affections,
the fountain of earthly bliss, not only the
source of social securityy and national pros-
perity-it is the birth-place of man's char-
acter, and of his eternal destiny. All other
institutions are of human origin and may
be changed or abolished; but this, which

God has instituted, blessed and sanctified,
may not be touched by the preasumng wis-
domor the rash hand of man, without in-
curring the entailed curse of Heaven. All
other instruction may be voluntary or par-
chased; but from this there can be no
shrinking and no release, without inevita.
ble punishment, and that of the direst
kind. The little plaything which 'smiling
parents dandle on the knee, has a think-
ing, feeling soul, which must tlLh and
feel forever, in Heaven or in Hell. Into
their hands it was given, and attheir hands
it will be required again. God has estab.

We may soften the soil in which Heaven-

almost from his boyhood delighted in in-

worrying his companions. He filled up
the measure of his infamy on the gallows.
With these, and scores of other illustra-

caution to parents and teachers, and ex-
hort them as they regard the future of
their children and pupils, that they will
use their influence and authority in check-
ing the tendency to cruelty, of which we
see such frequent exhibitions. The gen-
tle Cowper would not .have us "needlessly
set foot upon a worm." What would he
say of the merciless and shameless tyran-

eats and cows and birds, by which our sen-

The Arab and his Horse.
An Arab and his tribe had attacked the
caravan of Damas in the desert; the victo-
ry was complete, and the Arabs were al-
ready occupied in loading their rich booty,
when the horseguards of the Pacha of
Acre who came to the assistance of this
caravan, burst suddenly upon the victorious
Arabs, killed them in great numbers, took
others prisoners, and having bound them
with cords, brought them to Acro to pre-

one of the Arabs, had received a ball in his

The Insurrection.
BALTIMORE, Oct. 18.-The Baltimore
companies and the Marines, under com-
mand of Col. Lee, of the U. S. Army, ar-
rived near the Ferry last night, and learned
that the Virginia regiment and the Frede-
rick (Maryland) troops had entered the
town opposite. Much firing was heard,
and itwas reported that nine persons were
The insurgents held the Arsenal, and
were willing to surrender, but they de-
manded a safe conduct out of the difficulty;
otherwise, they threaten to sacrifice the
lives of two of the principal citizens of the
place, who were held as prisoners.
Among the insurgents are" Kegg, Sea-
man and Brown, of Ohio; Todd, of Maine,
and Aaron Stephens, of Connecticut. The
latter is now dying, and makes a statement
to the effect that the plan has been con-
cocting for more than a year. The parties
rendezvoused at a farm a few miles distant,
hired for the purpose. At their head was

conductor was killed, and two wounded.-
It is thought the Abolitionists would be

BALTIMORE, Oct. 18.-Accounts from
Harper's Ferry state that at about daylight
this morning a demand was made by the
officer in command of the United States
marines on the insurgents to surrender,
which was refused
The lMarines then forcca the door of the
Armory under a heavy fire from the insur-
gents, which oas promptly returned by tlhe
Marines, who forced an entrance at the
point of the bayonet.
In a few moments the conflict was over
and all the living insurgents captured.
The volunteers attempted to shoot them,
but were prevented from doing so by the
officers in command.
Capt. Brown, the distinguished Ossawa-
tomic free-soiler and outlaw, and his son,
were both shot. The latter was shot dead
-the former is dying. He talks freely of
his insurrectionary p'ans, and says that the
whole object of himself and associates was
to free the-slaves.
Anderson, of Connecticut, another leader
of the insurrection, was killed.

"Flor-imel." Its odor is tlit of an ex-
quisite bouquet of choice and delicate
flowers, without too much of that peculiar
sweetness so common in French Extracts,
which satiates and sickens the senses. It
is very neatly put up in bottles, whiah sell
at fifty cents each, and may be had of the
principal Druggists and Perfumers--

Of all the compounds we have yet seen
prepared as a cosmetic for the skin, there
js none that I!ha a higher rpr*ltinn nr
pne that is so popular with II... i ,
far-famed '"Iallistoo." It is scoi ntifically
prepared, and is a perfutim a0 well as toilet
wash. It impartsm to the skin a peculiar
softness of texture, so desirable during tihe
prai'alcnce of harsh drying yinds or a hot
Isun. It will, with l .1 .
move tan, freckles -

rcise in the open air as freely as they
ase, and experience no irncouvenience

How few people consider the import-
ance of preserving the teeth! and ihowi ma-
ny would give thousands. of dollars could
they regain them after the loss has he-
come irreparable.
Among the many preparations for pro-
serving the health and beauty of The eoLth
and Gums, we believe Burnett's Oriental
Tooth Wash deserves the highest rank.
The position which Mr. Burnett occu-
pies, as a chemist, his untiring energy and
rare skill, are sufficient guar'atee of tlhe
excellence of each and all the preparations
bearing his name.
The Oriental Tooth Wash has, we know,
received the sanction ano Fpigrqnage of the
leading Dentists and Physicians in this
country. It is not only a powerful deter-
gent and cleanserof the teeth, but, by its
vegetable astringent properties, acts direct-
ly upon the caries, thereby most effectually
arresting decay, and forming a protective
and a must impervious coating in the cavi-
ty, even where the nerve is exposed. I's
action is also beneficial to the gums, keep-
ing them firmly attached to the teeth, and
preventingthe .1 ...J... and softucss which
Is now-a-days sj common. Tie Oriental
Tooth Wash is moreover ono of the pleas-
antest remedies in thie world; searching,
pungenitand arotatia, it imparts 'to the
breath a peculiarly cleau and delightful
. fragrance. We advise our readers to try
it.-Dental fIfeis.
Gentlemen who areaddicted to the habit
of smoking will find u1rnett's Oriental
Torhl Wiash an excellent detergent. It
also imports to tile breath a fragrance
peculiarly aromatic and pleasant.
.ALLo' ilie above Articles dircot from
those Celebrated Chemists Messrs. Burnett
& Co., of Boston, are for sale in St, Aug-
ustine-only at
Sept 17.
We have always considered the real Fari-
ra Cilogne Water as the most niodest and
proper luxury for our toilet table, but the
other daywe were tempted by a stray bot-
tle of. Burnett's Kalliston, prepared by
Mltssrs. Joseph Burnett & Co. \Ve yield
it the palh; the effect is salutary and tlhe
perfume is exquisite; after the application
we fell as bland and balmy as a May morin-
ing. We beg to suggest to the proprietors
to make it less irresistible if they expect to
supply the demand.--uBwl o Ga(; 'ttc.,
