was, therefore celebrated by the. Ri
man Catholics and;Episcopalians with
appropriato ceremonles. It commem.
orates the day of the Savieur's triupJ.
phdnt, cntry into Jerusalum, Asi to
people on that occasion inaiifited
their joy -by cutting. down branches. of
Palm and carrying. them' in their
hands, or strewing them in the *ay;
hence this festival, from a very early
period, receiveid the name of "Palm
Sunday." In most Roman Catholic
congregations, the ancient custom of
distributing on that day branches of
the Palm, or some other tree; con
tinues to be religiously observed.
Besides this ceremony on Palm
Sunday, there are other days in -Holy
Week which are particularly devoted
to the commemoration of the history of
the redemption. by the Catholic
Church. On I1oly Thursday, as it
is called, (because on that day Christ
instituted the sacrament of the Holy
Eucharist, which the Roman Catholics
believe contains the body and blood of
Christ under the appearance of bread
and wine, and also because his pas
Mon or sufferings commenced on
that day.) Also, on Good Friday, so
called, because Christ was on that
day Crucified, and the work of're
demption consummated. Also, on
Holy Saturday, during which the
body lay in the Tomb. On the af
ternoons or evenings before each. of
these days, the Catholic Church cele
brates a solenm service called the of
fice of the Tenebrfe, from the dark
ness with which it concludes. In the
early ages of the Church it used to be
celebrated at night, which custom is
still practised by some religious com
munities. This office consists of the
usual matins of the Roman Catholic
Church, somewhat altered in relation
to the particular time of the year when
this holy season occurs. The mode of
its elebration is as follows:- A large
triangular candletick, the base of the
triangle being about three feet long, is
brought into the church, and placed in
the aisle in front of' the altar, and
immediately outside the railings of
the santuary. on a pedestal of about
six feet in height.. In each one of
the sides of this triangle thure are
seven sockets, and one on the top at
the meeting of the sides. In these
are placed fifteen lighted candles, -to
correspond with the number of psalns
recited befo're the Miserere. Af
ter each psalm one of the candles is
extinguished, with the exception of
the candle at the top of the, triangle,
which is token away and concealed be
hind'thep altar. The Benedictus then
pa tt usb"
extinguished, causing a total rk
ness. After a period o'f a few seconds
the concealed candle is brought forth
and placed in its former position, at
the top of the triangle, and the candles
on the altar are again lighted. The
custom of concealing the last and
most elevated of the candles in the tri
angle bechind the altar during the last
part of the service andl then bringing it
forth, burning. and plaicing it in its
former position, is a manifest allusion
to the death and resurrection of out
Saviour. This is the office of the
Tenebro, which is celebrated with so
munch effect in the Pope's chapel, at
Rome, during Uioiy Week, and which
is so much spoken of by travellers. The
saying (for no organ or other musical
instronent is used) of the Lanmenta
tions of Jeremiah, which form the
lessons, as they are called; of the of
fice and the Miserere by the Pope's
choir, is considered to be the high
est character of vocal music ever at

MErHODISM IN TnE UNITED STATES.
-The editor of the Zion's Herald takes
the following view of the progress of
Methodisin in this country. He says:
'American Methodism is not a cen
tury old. In the incredibly short
space of eighty-seven years it has built
four thousand two hundred and twenty
churches, (which is a little less than
one for. every week of her existence,)
at a cost of fourteen millions seven
hundred and thirty thousand five hun
dred and seventy-one dollars. It has
also erected and endowed its colleges
and numerous hcademies with large
sums. It hasrbuilt:innrmerable -.ar,
Aor Mi ,-'itsujplied-.y4Itself wiVflft
Church and Sabbath School literature.
Now most of these 'churehes having
been newly erected,' rebuilt, or re
modelled, and most of these vast, out
lays having been made within the last
quarter of a century, we think it no
exaggeration to estimate tihe expendi
tures of Methodism in thle United
States, for home purposes, at an aver
age very little short of one million of
dollars per annum for the last twenty
five years; in addition to that, it has
paid for the support of its ministry.'
