only :ut..ide 1bem by means of IS a dame prin.

sense of the invisible is therefore fully dompe-
tent to give us a complete victory over the worlds
the.flesh and the devil. It establishes within,
the authority of eternal realities. Life, death,
judgment, eternal rewards and punishments'
are made the knost real of all realities. These
things cease to be abstractions and dreams.: No

native awe and grandeur as thefacts ofan ever-
lasting existence fraught with infinite insizefi.

sientweshould have no ser.ous d.aculti in
practising that heroic endurance which is so
urgently recommended and enforced in the
word of God. When men realize the worldlY

There are troo abanges proposed by some of
our peopleorrathersomeof our preacherawhich
most certainly will, if effected, ultimately 1st,
weaken, and then, Sd, "destroy the plan of our
itinerant general superintendency.n
Thefrat one I notice, is the proposal to ex-
tend the term of the pastorate." I argue that
just in so for as this is done, you silk
1st. Make it more difHcult for the Bishops to
remove a psator, when the real interests of the
church require it, provided his longest possible<
term has not expired; provided, also, the pastol
Mul his charge are both accommodated.
To illustrate this: at A-----, the pastor la pop,
ular arid inia charge wish him to remain. He
too, is phased, and as the laro allows this, they
from LAeir standepaint.can see no good reason
why be should nothe retained. So, as all par

emptorily, a change in the pastorate. The
Bishop ana his cabinet all agree fot once that
this must be done for the good of the -church.
Here, too, the pastor and his peopFe all agree.
All parties are of one mind, In the practical
operations of the "glorIous itinerancy," how-
ever, it so happens thit, if the pastor leaves B_
for another field, so must the.paster at A- be
removed, foly as every one must know, the
change of one pastor from his Held of Intor
often involves the change of several.
