LOOSING FOR PEA RLSAN ORIENTAL
J, GEN D
The Master came one evening to the gate
Of a far city; it was growing late,
And lending his disciples to buy food,
lie wandered forth intent on doing good,
As was his wont. And in the market-place
lie saw a crowd, close gathered in one space,
Gazing with eager eyes npon the ground.
Jeans drew nearer, and thereon He found
A noisome creature, a bedraggled wreck
A dead dog with a halter round his neck.
And those who stood by mocked the object
And one said, scoffing, "It pollutes the air!"
Another jeering, asked, "How long to-night
Shall such a miscreant cur offend oar sight?"
"Look at his torn side," sneered a Jewish wit,
VYou could not even cut a shoe from it,"
And turned away. "Behold his ears that
A fourth chimed in, "an unclean wretch in
deed!" "He hath been hanged for thieving," they all
And spurned the loathsome beast from side
Then Jesus, standing by them in the street,
Looked at the poor spent creature at his feet,
And, bending o'er him, spake unto the men;
Tearls are not whiter than his teeth." And
The people at each other gazed, asking,
"Who is this stranger pitying the evil thing?"
Then one exclaimed, with awe-abated breath,
"This surely is the Man of Nazareth;
This must be Jesus, for none else but lie
Something to praise in a dead dog could sea!"
And being ashamed, each scoffer bowed his
And from the sight of Jesus turned and fled.
HAPPINESS IN DEATH.
The Rev. William Jay, in a sermon on the
requisites for a happy death, says:
"It requires that you should obtain and
preserve the evidences of pardon; without
these yon cannot be fearless and tranquil in
the near views of eternity, sinoe 'after death
is the judgment.' It requires you to keep a
conscience void of offense towards God and
teward3 man. Is he in a condition to die who
has lived in the practice of some known sin,
and in the omission of some known duty ? Is
be in a condition to die who has worn the
mask of hypocsisy, which will now drop off
and expose him in his true character? Is he
in a condition to die who, by artifice, unfair
dealing, grinding the faces of the poor, has
amassed gain which will dishonor him if re
stored, and damn him if retained? It
requires us to live in the exercise of brotherly
kindness and charity. Of all we do for Him,
nothing pleases Him more than this; this we
know He will acknowledge in the day of
judgment, and why not in the day of death ?
'Blessed is he that oonsidereth the poor; the
Lord will deliver him in time of trouble.'
'The Lord will strengthen him npon the bed
of languishing; Thou wilt make all his bed
in his sickness.' Many are praying for him;
the widows and the fatherless cry, and their
cry entereth 'the ears of the Lord of Sab
bath.' "It requires an attention to religion in your
families. I pity that father who will be sur
rounded, when he dies, with children whose
minds he never informed, whose dispositions
he never curbed, whose manners he never
guarded; who sees one an infidel, another a
profligate, and all irreligious. I know that
yon are not answerable for the conversion of
your offspring, but you are responsible for the
use of all proper means. And if these have
been neglected, yon will plant your dying pil
low with thorns; whereas, if you have seri
ously and perseveringly attended to them,
your dying repose shall not be disturbed by
want of success; but you shall be able to say,
'Although my house be not so with God,
yet hath he made me an everlasting covenant,
ordered in all things and sure; for this is all
my salvation and all my desire, although be
make it not to grow.'
"Through the mercy of God, and the grace
Of His dear Son, may we be enabled to live in
the discharge of duty, that our 'dying becU
shall feel soft as downy pillows are. Amen."
S TJMMAR Y OF CH UR CH NE WS.
Joseph A. Dugdale, a preacher among the
Hicksite (Unitarian) Friends, whose winning
tmile has been the "open sesame" which, ail
1 trough his long and useful life, has admitted
him to places usually inaccessible, has been
invited, recently, to preach in the Episcopal
church at Mount Pleasant, Iowa. The Rev.
Dr. Cooper, the rector, after Friend Dugdale
closed, made an appeal "in behalf of the
broadest liberality and the ntmost toleration
among Christian denominations."
The next General Convention of the
Episcopal Church will be memorialized con
cerning the repeal of the Church canons for
bidding the officiating of ministers of other
denominations in Episoopal pulpits, and re
quiring the use of the Book of Common
Prayer before all sermons and lectures. The
"Muhlenburg Memorial" will also be pre
sented, praying for liberty on the part of
ministers to omit "such words, expressions,
or passages" in the service as may, in his
judgment, contradict his ordination vow "to
teach nothing as necessary to salvation but
that which he is persuaded may be conoluded
and proved by Scripture."
At Baltimore, Md., the United Presbyte
rian Church of which the Rev. William Bruce
is pastor, has just completed the first year of
an experiment to abolish all pew rents, and
depend entirely npon weekly contributions
for the means of meeting current expenses.
The trial year has resulted well, and a surplus
of about two hundred dollars is in the
So decided in his temperanoe opinions is
the Rev. Mr. Cooper, Presbyteriau pastor of
McOonnellsville, Pa., that when the subscrip
tion books for his support were opened he
Instructed the deacons as follows: To re
ceive no money on subscriptions from fami
lies any part of whose income is derived from
the sale of intoxicating liquors; to mark all
such subscriptions as paid, and charge the
lame to his aoeount; and if the amount al
lowed him as salary could not be raised from
other sources, the salary might be reduced
just as muoh as the subscriptions from these
doubtful sources amounted to,
The First Church, Memphis, on the first
Sabbath of the new year, received twenty,
nine persons on profession of their faith, and
' nine by letter.
The Norfolk Journal mentions that on a
late Sabbath thirty-eight persons were re

of Norfolk, Va., Dr. Armstrong's. A few
only of these were upon dismission from other
There la a rumor trat a church of the
Presbyterian Church South will shortly be
formed in New York, and Dr. Palmer, of New
Orleans, called to the pastorate.
The Attociate Reformed Pretbylerian ex
plains the decline in that Church by the fol
lowing statement: "The want of increase
since 1852 has been owing to two causes,
viz.: deaths, and a change of relation prin
cipally the latter. Since 1812, 17 of our min
isters have died. During the same perioa Zi
have left ns to join other churches; 22 have
connected with the Old School Presbyterians,
and 4 have joined the United Presbyterians
The Northwestern Seminary at Chicago
has thirty-eight students, one of whom re
ceived his collegiate education in Norway,
one in the Netherlands, two in Ireland, three
in Canada, and the remainder in abeve twenty
different institutions in this country.
Mr. Frederick Marquand, of 8outhport,
Ct., has offered to erect, at his own expense,
a chapel for the Yale Theologioal School. The
estimated cost is not far from $22,000. The
building will be large enough for the religious
meetings of the college and for use for spe
cial lectures. It is to be completed in Sep
tember. The Female Cent Society of New Hamp
shire is a valuable auxiliary to home mission
ary enterprises. During the sixty-five years
of its existence it has collected $74,82.). It
has a memorial fund of $!000. In 1805, its
first year, $500 was raised; in 1870, $2500
all by contributions of one cent a week from
each of its members.
A conference of the Congregational
churches of New York and Brooklyn was held
at the Church of the Pilgrims, in Brooklyn,
Wednesday, March 8. The question, "What
is the best means of promoting the highest
spirituality among Christians?" was dinoussed
by the liev. Mr. Beecner, lie v. Dr. Jf aimer,
Rev. Messrs. Janes, Brown, and Everest, and
Rev. Dr. Thompson.
The missionary brig Morning Star, which
recently sailed from Boston for the South Sea
Islands, meeting rough weather, has been
compelled to return from Provinoetown to

last on board.
The receipts of the American Board for
January were $31,489, which is a falling off
of $17,005 from those of the same month
last year; and for the six months ending
January 31, the receipts show a falling off of
The Rev. Jacob Totka, a minister of the
German Reformed Church, has been received

Bishop Henry Whitehouse, of the Epis
copal Diocese of Illinois, has lately given or
dination to ayoung Swede, Rev. Mr.Almqvist,
from Gotheborg, Sweden. He is now labor

to absorb Scandinavian Lutherans have sig
nally failed of late.
A new Baptist church was dedicated on
March 8 at Hunter's Point, the new city which
has grown up within a few years at the east
ern terminus of the Long Island Railroad.
The sermon was by the Rev. Dr. Everts, of
Chicago. The congregation was organized in
lbC'J, with nine members. In building the
church, which cost $20,500, it was largely
aided by Mr. Horace Waters; the wife of Mr.
Waters furnished the baptistery.
Emanuel Baptist church, at Albany, ha.
just been completed. It takes the place o
Pearl street Baptist church, where Dr. B. T.
Welch had his long and fruitful ministry, and
is now under the care of Rev. Dr. Bridgman.
It is situated on State street, above the new
Capitol. It will afford sittings for one thou
The new Michigan avenue Baptist church,
Chicago, has adopted a plan for renting its
sittings which presents some good features.
Any number of sittings may be rented, from
a single sitting to a whole pew, for any pe
riod, however short, at a uniform rate
throughout the house of $125 for eaoh sit
ting. The preference in the choice of pews
is given to those who will pay the rents of
the greatest number of seats. The surplus
from such extra rentals is to be laid aside to
assist those who cannot pay a full rental.
A correspondent of the Watchman and
Reflector has thought what a beneficent and
fruitful mission a Christian minister would
accomplish if he could go with supplies to
the different missionary stations in France,
distribute aid to the suffering, comfort them
in their affliction, and preach the Gospel of
salvation. He could reach at the same time
thousands of Romanists, who would welcome
such a man as an angel from heaven. He
thinks that the French people, believing that
their sufferings are a chastisement from the
Almighty, will be in a favorable mood to
receive such teachings.
The Committees of the Presbyterian and
United Presbyterian Churches, appointed to
consider the question of annionof the two
branches, met in Pittsburg during the week,
and organized by the election of ihe Rev. Dr.
Dickson, of New York, chair man, and of'the
Rev. W. J. Reid, of Pittsburg, secretary.
The Occident gives a favorable report of
the Presbyterian mission to the Chinese in
California. It was strengthened by the ac
cession of the Rev. I. II. Condit in June.
Having labored at a similar work in Canton,
he was able at onoe to enter into all the work
of the mission, as a preaoher to the Chinese
in their own language. The various depart
ments of tke work have been proseouted
during the past as in former years, exoept
that, owing to the great falling off in the
immigration, there has been less call for the
visiting and preaching to the newly arrived
strangers which has heretofore been a pro
minent feature of the work. During the year
two of the members of the church returned
to China, where they are employed as colpor
teurs a portion of the time, the other portion
being devoted to study, with a view to pre
paration for greater usefulness.
The subscriptions to the Memorial Fund
thns far are estimated at $4,000,000, of
which $800,000 to $000,000 have been sub
scribed to educational institutions, about
$75,000 being to enterprises oa the foreign
mission field; above $1,000,000 are for new
churches, $1,000,000 to the payment of
church debts, and $l,000,0()0jfor parsonages,
repairs, hospitals, and publication buildings.
The Rev. Gardner Spring, now eighty-six
years old, has recently expressed to the chair
man of the Memorial Committee his joy in
