BOOBS daw A XE ASS OP GRACE.
We ordinarily think of books as a
source of knowledge. Unod b.ioka ara
something more ; they aro a infant of
grace as wei'. For genuine piety in
eludes the heati as well as the heart,
the ute of the intellect and reason a?
well as the allection. Ignorance is the
foe to true re'igiou. the nurse of MpOT*
stiti'in. To be, without knowledge it.
not good.
Of the value of go-palll knowledge
few nun had a stronger sem-e thau
John Wasley. No man ever did more
to convey it to the people. In the ab?
sence of schools or aa a supplement to
tl e school, he retorted to the prs??,
which could be utilized where the

In 17-4 the fathers ia eoum-il it

was: "Bec.use we are not,more know?

Moiled to be more "diligent, uever to
be unemployed, never to 00 tntlingly

The Presbytery of Pittsburg has been
haring a lively lime in discussing tl.a
question of revising the Confession of
Faith. According to tha Philadelphia
Pr sm, the Presbytery roted against re?
vision, whereupon a resolution was
ottered requiring thu ministers of the
Presbytery "as sonu aa poasiMe, to
present to their bcveral cougregaiiona
our belief an set forth ia the Weat
minster Confeaaiou of Faith upon the
following, among other topics: That
i't-d bat from all eternity ordained

that elect infanta alone are s.. ved. and
that the Pope of Home is anti-Christ."

The jinkii-1-.h... the two wheeled *.ar

used in Japan, was the invention of
Rev. Jonathan Holde, the first Ameri?
can Baptist missionary to Japan. It bat
become indispensable, aud the tax on
them forms one of the most important
item in the yearly revenue of the gov?
ernment. Large numbera of the vehi?
cles are being imported to other coun?
tries, and it ia not improbable, says a
writer, that the financial bane rita which
tbe country haa drawn from thia inven?
tion of a missionary would go far to
pay the whole cost of miaeione io that
