Communion of the Church, sometimes excusing

cost the siiner nothing. They are freely put at

may use them. This access to God in every

merit, is it not a privilege ?"
If we were to allege ,ltr l.5 t.t ,.: at Church
lows from pride-from c,3 **.n.'c*r,1pon of
eminency in ourselves," we could support the
position by an argument much more plausible
than the one that misguided Hobbes in tracing
laughter to this source. Let us see." A sermon
often embodies the results of patient thought,
or extensive reading. Itis the hest that can be
done, under the circumstances, by the mental
training and the professional experience of the
speaker. But those who sleep during the
delivery of a sermon, exchange it for their own
dreams, as tho' these were the more excellent.
Now, what stronger token of an. overweening
"conception of eminency in ourselves"-of
gross pride, e in well be conceived, than that a
man should prize his loose, unreasoning, inco-
herent dreams more than the production in
which the research, study and intellect of other

that case, he eould hardly win his way to the

assumption which seems to lie at the bottom
of sleeping in Church. And we -remind oui

"Grow in grace" is an Apostolic injunction to
every believer, at all times, It is a necessity,
if We mould fully come up to the standard of
Christian duty and enjoyment. To "grow in
grace" is to grow in favor with God, to grow
more like God. To do this a believer must be
a man of prayer. Private, ejaculatory and
family prayer must be state ly and frequently
observed. Isaieed, he grows most, who lives
in the ha&it ana in tbe atmoipbere of prayer.t
Obedience, entirvand constant, In all things,
is necessary to thkei growth. Our children
please us most when JAey are ytost obedient.
Aa obedient child grows in th% favor of his
parent daily. So it is with God's children.
This growth is necessary to'the permanency
and reliability of our faith. Nothing is so
destructive t9 faith in God as disobedience or
the neglect of duty. No disobedient child can
approach his parentwith confidence. He comes
into his presence with fear and trembling. So
it is.with a believer. Mutual confidence-con.
fidence in us on the part of God and confidence
in us in God, are both essential to true faith.
It is necessary to our holiness and felicity.
There isno true happiness where there is no
holiness. Growth in grace promotes our holi-
ness and happiness.
It is essential to our usefulness. Nothing so
much promotes the confidence of others in up,
as the exhibition and practice of holiness.
Wealth, learning, and social position may give
us influence, but nothing gives such weight to
a man as holiness and integrity of character.
tour usefulness depends upon our influence.
Growth in grace secures both.-No. Ca. Advocate.
Genuine benevolence is a principle, not an
impulse. It has its being in the conscience, not
in the transient emotions of the heart. The
generosity, whioh needs the constant application
of external stimulants, is uncertain in its opera-
ion, and suspicious, at best. It hath no dept-h
of earth, and springs up, only to perish at its'
There is reason to fear that much, which
wears the semblance of benevolence, is of this
unsubstantial and fleeting character. Ourcharity
needs, to too great an extent, the exciting ap-
peal of agents and the appliances of personal
influence. The bodily presence and the elo-
quent tongue of the advocate must be invoked
to give utterance and emphasis to the voice of
duty. The wand of some mighty magician must
smite tue rock, ere the generous water gushes
This is no new thing under the sun. Even
some of the primitive disciples were thus roely
hearted; and the apostles had to complain that
their presence and personal influence were
sometimes neesesary to insure the performance
of acknowledged duty. The Galatians, it seem,
were not 'always' zealously affected in a good
thing," but only when the apostle was with
them. In his absence, the ehemy recovered
and re-occupied the lost ground. The laggards
hung back, and the disheartened fled the field

New. Series.-No. 151

We would add a few encouraging words to
the religious soldiers. Keep up the spirit of re-
gion by reading the word of God, by sel f-exam-
nation, and by earnest prayer.' If your Chap-
lin is called away, do not neglect the regular
prayer meeting; come together and mutually
encourage one another in the service of God.
Never be ashamed of your religion, confe-s
Christ, not with ostentation, but humbly, sin-
- rely, gladly, before any man, from the lowest
private to the highest General. Keep yourself
ree from all the vices of camp. Never indulge
n sinful amusements to kill time; if you do,
sin will, in, the end kill your soul. Resolve
that if God shall'spare your life, you will return
o your-home a pure and true man, and if you
should fall, you will fall as a Christian praying.
"Lord Jesun, receive my spirit."
Unconverted soldier! take.a few words of
advice and warning. You are still spared.
God has shielded your head in many battles.
What return have you made? Are you still
thoughtless, profane, and openly wicked? Stop,
reflect. You may be killed in the next skirmish
or battle. How would you appear before the
Judge? Ah! you know you would 'have to
charge your ruin to your own neglect of salva-
tion. While you read this, resolve to change
yonr life:- Begin now to pray. There is mercy
for you. The door of the Kingdom is before
you, knock and it shall be opened.-iSldier's
Rousseau, in his E idus, maintains that
children should be reared without religious
impressions. "An infidel might well make this
proposition. He would "gain the cause" of
infidelity, if christians should accept it. "Left
to the impulses of fallen nature and brought
under the corrupting influences of the world,
the young.would grow in irrelipion and vice,
as they grew in years. In the next generation,
the power of the gospel would suffer an almost
total expulsion from among men.
Now, are there not Christian parents who
'act as though they had accepted this proposi-
tion of Rousseau ?-parents who practically
give infidelity the advantage of it ? They do
not teach their children the fear of the Lord.
The great yet simple, zhe startling yet persua-
sive and tender truths if the gospel, find no
echo on their lips, when the household gathers
around them, and the words are spoken which
become things-the words which take root in
the soul and bear fruit ever after through life.
If they might'bit feei tiSat the parenTrn-----

its place. I had not read long before I became
interested as I had never been in this good
book ; and I saw in its truths that I was a sin-
ner, and must repent if I would be saved. I
then promised God that Iwould seek His face
at the earliest opportunity, and.if He saw fit
to convert my soul, that I would spend my lifo

AUGUSTA, GA.. DEC. 8, 184.

When the Publishing Committee last met,
the Editor was instructed, itf circumstances
seemed to require either a return to a half sheet
or to advance the price, not to reduce the size,
but to increase the price. Tire time has come
When it is absolutely necessary to choose be-
tween the two alternatives.
Since the present, price was fixed in March,
expenses have nearly doubled, and if matters
remain as they now are, it will be clearly im-,
possible toget through the half of another year
without doubling the present subscription price.
This price would not have brought us through
this year but for the handsome donation of
$10,000 last winter from the Eagle Manufac-
turing Company o0 Columbus, Ga., and for the
very large subscription list we have been able
to maintain till the present time.
But in our present restricted territory we
cannot have so large a list. The late continu-
ous interruption in the mails, and the large
districts of territory placed by the advance of
the er my beyond our reach is already very
sensibly affecting our receipts, and recently
our income is greatly diminished. It must be
further diminished, necessarily we suppose, by
any increase in subscription price; and these'
two elements of loss working together, makes
it essential now to advance the price to a sum
thst we would not fix, if either operated alone..
But that we may leave the way open to re-
turn to more moderate price atanyauspicious
moment, without having levied too largely pen
the subscribers who now come to our help, we
propose to take subscriptions for only three or
six months-as the subscriber may elect. In
that time., perhaps, we may be able to return to
former prices. We trust sincerely we shall
never find it necessary to advance to a higher
W We must appeal to the preaoners to continue
their good offices in behalf of the Advocate. We
have but a limited terrilorynow; of which we
are sure-and this territory must help the paper
to its utmost capacity, or it cannot live. To
mention one item only as a sample of its ex-
pences-our paper billslone is $6.000per month.
Our friends must imagine from this item what
it costs to keep the Advocate afloat. We beg
them, therefore, not p be weary in well doing.

Our excellent friend and urother, John Liep-
er, Esq., of-Murfreesboso', Tenn.,-though now
-.mpporarily a refugug resident of Augusta-
cc asidering the wants of the brave soldier, wish-
es to inaugurate a movement, that will increase
thesupply of the Sithern Christian Advocate to
the Army. He, therefore, proposes to be one
of fif.y persons, who shall each give Five Hun

Let there be a-liberal response-for thus can
the soldiers be furnished with a religious piper
-and at the same time the paper be kept above
the waves.

It is one of the peculiarities of our Lord's
parables, that in them by a single stroke he
unseals an overflowing fountain of truth. In a
short sentence, by a simple illustration, bhe
discloses to us what might to merely human
apprehension have always remaidied an enigma.
Why is it that they who have no hindrances
from'without to counteract religions truth-
who have neither persecution nor care to en
counter, whose life is externally propitious to
the operation of gospel influences-how is it,
that so many such are found, who live year
after year hearers, but not"doers of the word ?"
The reason lies not in the character of the
truth, any more than in any unpropitious cir-
cumstances of the hearer. It is able to effect
in these what it does in others. Its failure to
do so, as our Saviour teaches, lies in the ftivol-
ons character of man. It may seem a hard sen-
tence upon the race, when we predicate frivol-
ity of all hearers of the gospel, who never
appear to te influenced by what they hear ; for'
among them are some, who in respect to the
world's work seem to be earnest and stable
enough. But is not the world's work all frivol.
ous compared with what the gospel proposes
to human effort? Does he trifle more who,
amid the stern duties of life, fritters away his
time and dArfs his mind with insignificant
pleasures or childish employments, than he
does who permits even the mostimportant-eartr-
ly work to dixerithe-mtflitwholly from eternal
i4.-ri Ouar Saviour in the parable of the
sower makes no distinctionbetween these trifiers
of various grade. Noneof them receive the
word, and the reason is the same in every case-
they are way side hearers.
The truth finds no permanent lodgment in
their bear*,. They hear it-they pay homage
toit. They comprehend the profit that may
accrue to a community to have some religion
taught-and this may seem better than any
other. They are satisfied that it contains a
highly conservative code of morals-yet they
do not understand it. They do not comprehend
its essence-its regenerating, life-giving power.
They do not know that it is the substance of
all other truth-that it has such relation to
their character and life, that they are not even
men, in the highest sense, until it. has penetra-
ted their inmost nature, and is there every
moment developing in them the true man-
'hood. Their view of it is wholly superficial-
and if they think ofit stall, it is as of some-
thing extraneous to their ordinary life, which
is never intended to coalesce with it, but affects
only their relation to the future beyond the
grave--and if attended to just before death,
nothing more is necessary. The truth never
*enters the soil of lbt heart-never so much as
germinates into a wise and well;kept reaolu
tion. .
Such natures are as liable to be impressed by
any momentary excitement As.they are by the
loftiest aod most important religious truth.

the future-one in the excitements of pleasure,
another, in thecares of life-and all, no matter
what the occasion, ate equally indifferent to
religion, if any thing will offer to usurp its
placi in their minds.
Thus, no, the enjoyment merely'of things
temporal,but the very thought of them displaces
all thought of eternal things. The anticipated
pleasures of social life weigh more than divine
joys-the expected commingling with friends
in perhaps frivolous amusements-the promis-
ed gayeties of to-morrow receive attention
before ,he ever pressing religious duty of the
present. The creature usurps the place of the
Creator-time swallows up eternity.
It would be a wonderful record of man's
littleness and weakness could we but 'have an
accurate hi-tory of the infinitesimal objects
which have come between a man's awakening
spiritual sight and the clear revelation of
divinetruth to the soul, and which have thus
shut it up in perpetual darkness. A whim, a'1
youthful frolic, a gay assembly, a giddy eom-
panion, a misplaced affection, a business call,
a social glassor game, a chance word, an infidel
sneer-theseand a thousand otherilike objects,
transient and valueless, have occupied the
mind, when the Holy Spirit would have dispos-
ed it to contemplate eternal realities. How
many souls have been wrecked in calm seas
and shallow waters, because they would trifle
along the shores of life, instead of bravely ven-
turing out.into the depths of earnest thought
and manly endeavor. To bestow superior
advantages and noble opportunities upon such
characters is to shste the world's wealth ; for
they would fever produce worthy, results.
Their frivolous natures are incapableof lofty
But if it be said that many irreligious per.
sons do effect great and worthy purposes, for
the benefit of society, we answer, that we grant
it-but can we except even thesb from.that
nuirber who dqo, tot act steadily upon the
assumption of their responsibility to God-
from those in whose heart the principles of the

ment, or for pride's sake, or for approbation, or
for self aggrandisement-for the worldliest of
motives do what in itself is beneficial tosociety?
And thui it is the'reward that moves, instead'
01 a set purpose to. follow duty at all hazards.
For duty is easy when it accords with inclina-
tion-and to do it then is not a true test of vir-
tue. He only can be sure of his motives who
finds that his work is done amid sacrifices of
inclination. And, after all, -what purpose is
worthy of man, that grows not out of the heart
consecrated to God, and seeking eternal life ?
What so exalted and valuable, as we have be
fore said, as to be other than frivolous, if only
earthly benefit for ourselves or others be its
end ? And, though, therefore, we may award a
higher meed of praise now to those who have
lived earnest lives with only worldly aims, yet
when the element of the unending future is
brought into the computation of their worth.
ness, can wea do otherwise than pronounce
them a higher style of triflers, than they who
have frittered away -life in chasing bubbles
down the stream of life-bubbles always burst-
ing before tile great ocean- is reached. -They
all alike have their good things in this world.
The word teaches truths that concern eternity--
and where it has notdeveloped that greatthought
in themaind, and made it an element in all our
motives, there we find the constant character-
istic of the wayside, hearer-one who trifles
with eternal truth and permits it to be oblite-
rated by t'.e present and perishing.
But we have not' yet oully answered the
question, with whih owe set out, why is there
such egregious follfin men ? Is it all of ha-
ture, or is there some evol power, taking advan.
tage of nature ? There is such a power--one
who would not have men to "believe and be
saved," and men, by their want of serious attern-
tion to religious truth, lay themselves opan-to-

the good seed. Not resisting hisadcess to them,
they have lost their good impressions-and
now fancy themselves free from idle supersti-
tion, whi'e indeed they are bond slaves to the
devil. To multitudes of this class is the gospel
preached weekly; and it has no work more
dillicult than to Waken up serious thought in
their minds It has arrayed against it, not
merely the ignorance and stolidity of man's
nature, but of that nature under its worst con-
dition, a slave to frivolous pursuits ; and yet
more, of that nature surrendered to the easy
control of the greatest enemy of good. It has
man in his worst condition, andflM n with his
highest advantage to contend with and over-
come, beforeit can do its gracious work for the
soul,. Is it any wonder then, that so many
sermons fail--thatso much effort seems wast-
ed ? Nothing but the power of the IHoly
Ghost can conquer here-and, therefore, it
become#qhe preacher to seek most earnestly
for the presence of that power whenever he
goes forth to sow.

And hie me to the house in Bethany.
Of al the Jewish maidens, I love mot .
Tha ipnsive Mary, void of gutll or art,
Who sat Jeam' feet, in rapture lost,
To seek the one thing heedful to her heart,
No bidding did she need, when Jesus claimed
Her services of duty and of love
The alabaster box, for' games famr'd,
Was broke, and used, .her gratitude to prove.
With fragrant ointment, did she wet his, fet,
And dried it with her silken, flowing tair;
All works for Christ inset a reward complete
So the sweet fragrp'ernests foire e there.
This woman's glory is her hair profuse;
'Twos trrely ueed her Lord to glorify.
Never, before or since, was put to use

Edwin fell on his knees. He looked tip
through tearful eyes at the picture, a.-1 all his
difficulties were explained to h}m. 1 ert hto
saw that 16 was safer to serve God in a poor and
low estate ; that the evil and great too often
deceive themselves, and serve the world even
when they think to serve Christ.
"I will cleave to the Wooden Cross," he
said. "So help me, my God,"
Then he rose and sat down, closing his eyes,
butso he didso, he saw the image of Bertha,
and the struggle began afresh. So he found
that it was not enough to, resolve, and many,
therefore, were the hours that he spent in
prayer that'trial-night of is life.' '
I. xt day Edwin gave his answer. It was so
calm, and withal so sad and sweet, that neither
his mother nor the merchant sought tochange
it. The latter shook his head only and bade
farewell ; and Millicent blessed her child, and
asked his pardon for seeking to change his
purpose.. '
After1-ti, E-lwin'ts health fAiled, and the
the neighbors said he would die at the fall, or
up May hill-so sharp was the struggle, so
bitter the sorrow. Mewatime the merchant was
in glory in London, and Bartha only renmem-
bered her cousin, and'would not be married.
Years passed on and Millicen,'s body rested
under a goodly cross in'the church-yard, while
her son, serving a a proor curate in the Derby-
shire Hills at the source of the Diae, lived fn
sae h is dream verified in earthly things as well I s
in heavenly. His parsonage gave a home to the
ruined merchant Halivaux, arid his churchyard
-a grave. Bertha had fallen asleep before
the troubles came on, and died in sanctity.
Thbn came bhe greatsorrows, the dissolving of
the lesser monasteries, the fall of Wolsey, the
nuprder of Fisher and More. Then the great
Abbots of Benton and Leicester were humbled
around hinf, with many others; and the church
trampled down more and'more Next follow-
ed the ruin of the spoilers Cromwell and
.Gage, and Seymoucr, and Dudley, one after
another. -
In all these tribulationsEdwin.wassafein the
wild cure, and almost untroubled. They cared
not to hurt him, and he was contented. Not
like the Vicar of Bray, for the tithe-not like
Bernard Gilpin, for the sake of his flock-but
he held on through all changes of the church
around him ;himself unchanged. He could
"not approve them ; neither those of King Ed-

not aB maker ot them-he was not responsible
for them. So he went on, and did his best
under the eircumstiaces. **
Now and then a rumor would go abroad of his
great knowledge and goodness, and offers of
high preferment were made which he always

Abram Allan, concerning Whom it is almost im-
possible to speak otherwise than in terms of e-
travagant eulogy. Abram was an old 'itlien,
and a highly respected one. ie was reared
with Badger and the Stanlys, possessed the
highest intellectual qualities of any coloredinan
I ever saw,. nd was 'a Southern patriot to-the
back bone, When the.Yankees under the ap-
plieatioh of the rule, to run the churches" as
well as the Government undertook to unite the
colored Chureh in Washington to the C.', eel
out Conference, they wanted to oi.1-.r. Abr..m
and make him pastor.' But, the heroic colored
man told them it was against the laws of ihis
State for a colored man to preach,and he intend..
ed to keep the laws. They could neither bribe
nor intimidate him. He stood to his colors.
They carried away his wife and family, and left
him solitary by his own hearth. But he remain-
ed true to the South. And when I visited Wash-
ington the first time, I found the brave old'
Christian colored man, like Old Mortality, busy
among the graves of the old citizens, rubbing up
and shutting in the desolated tombs of his de-
parted friends. Let Abram live in story."

the-birds had just finished their evening
prayers; and the earth, yet warm, was preparing
in silence for the repose of night.
The Death's Head Sphinx then gave the signl
of departure, and the little processioqp started,
pursuing with slow steps, the path which led
to the rosy heaths.
Spiders, whose business it was to clear the
road, preceded the body, which was surrounded
onone side by lady-birds and on the otb er by
the eamet crickets, who followed the tail-bearer
butterfly. Afterward came hbe ci.mmon ants,
the spectre ante, and finally -the caterpillars.

wirds dung alternately by the crickets and the
From time to time the chants ceased, and
sighs and even sobs were distinctly heard,
showing the universal regrets inspired by the
loss of the humble insect who was on its way to
its last dwelling.
Arrived at the heath, they perceived, not far
from some tombs which had recently been
closed, as- the freshly disturbed earth about
them indicated, and among graves which
seemed to have been dug as it were for the
future wants of the spectators, a little grave
over which the burying beetles were still lean-
It was toward thiasgrave Ihat the pro.'s.-ion
directed itself. The chants hai c,,ir..i the
sobs, also, and even the sighs; for, in all great.
griefs, there is a moment of profound sadness
which renders them absolutely mute. But
when the insects who bore the ci-u', d.-
posited it in the tomb, and when it : .:lid be.
seen that nothing separated it from the
naked and barren earth, the cries and sobs
burst forth atmow, and grief had no longer any
Then an insect, entirely clad in black, ap-
proached the tomb. "Why do you weep ?"
exclaimed he. "Should those who stillibear
the burdens of life weep for those whom death
has delivered from them? 'But weep on."

But the sobs were still hbardf..-r no one-was
"Brothers," said another orator, advancing
in .his tur, "it is at their birth, not at their
