Growth of Character.
[From Beecher's Union.]
There is no moral character
withouf life. . Things that are
dead iave none, except so far
as we figuratively impute it to
them on account of their ' ten
dencies. The things that tend
to lift men into noble self-sacrifice,
generosity, purity, and
communion with God, are good;
and the things that make for
Selfishness, hatred, and animal
hood are evil. And the ques
tion for every man to answer is
is not only, "YVhere3b.Qu.t8 on
the scales am I?" but Which
way on the scales am I moving?"
Ihe barometer indicates
approaching changes of
weather, not by the high or low
stand of the mercury in its tube.
bu, by the rising or fallma of
the mercury. If ft low barome
ter indloated storm, then there
never would be fair weather on
the tops of the mountains,
where the rarity of the atmos
phere cause a perpetual low bar
ometer. But on the mountains.
an everywhere else, the value
of the barometric warnings lies
in the tendency which they re
veal. In like manner, many
a poor Christian, surrounded by
disadvantages and drawbacks.
as by an atmosphere affording
too little oxygen and lacking
in pressure, displays to his own
despondent self-examinaton a
very low barometer of moral
character and attainment. For
his comfort we say,"Do not be
discouraged; but take many
many readings, and find out
whether the mercury is rising"
It is not a high, but rising,
barometer that should give you
joy." In this spirit Faul sum
med, up his Christian hope. He
counted not himself to have at
tained; he rested no claim to re
ward upon what he had achiev
ed; but this one thing did he
pressed forward. And in this
spirit, too, are we commended to
work and to grow, (iod being in
us the power and inspiration.
Thus is explained how the Sa
vior can be our righteousness:
He is not only our Ideal and
patterm but the life within our
life by which we strive toward
him. And all who are erowintr
in grace and in the knowledge
of our Lord are truly his chil
dren, as all the flowers that,
feeling the fire of the sun in
th.?ir Yews, ftHse and stretch up
ward to the sun, are truly
children of the sun. Some get
a good deal higher than others
yet the poorest grow a little
and the stateliest come so far
short of reaching the sky that.
to the eye of the sun, they are
still on a level.
WATER OF THE SEA.
[From the London Lancet.]
Nearly the whole sea is. four
times a day, subject to a change
in Us level by the movements
01 its tides. The motion oro
duced by the winds and known
by the name of waves is much
less regular. The wind, strik
ing the surface of the sea in an
oblique direction, pushes some
of the water on the surface over
il.. L 1: j .1'
um i yum; 11 10 contiguous 10
and thus raises it above
common level until .so
water is accumulated that the
wind is unable to maintain it
in that position, and t' it falls
down. Each wave presents a
gently ascending surface to the
windward, and a particular de
scent leeward. The elevation
of the waves varies according
to the strength of the wind.' A
very heavy gale raises them
from six to eight feet above the
common level ; but in ' verv.
strong gales they attain an ele-
vauon 01 tiiirty leet. -This mo
tion of the surface of the sea is
not perceptible to a great depth.
in the strongest gales it is sup
posed not to extend beyond
seventy-two feet below the sur
face ; and at a depth of ninetv
feet, the sea is perfectly still. :
ine iorm and even the size
of the waves vary according to
the depth and extent of ihe seL
In shallow water where the
lower part of the waves ap
proaches the bottom and meets
with resistance, the waves are
abrupt and irregular, and this
is also the case in conhned seas :
whilst on the open seas thev
are wide and long, and rise and
n 11 ait .
tan with great regularity.
When the waves run to a slow
shore, the slope of the ground
breaks their force and thev ter
minate in a tranauil manner:
but when thev are imnelled

igamst an elevated rockv coast.
being repelled by the rock, they
produce what is called surf.
This evident rising of the sea
on a rocky coast sometimes at
tain an elevation of one hun
dred feet above the sea level.
This surf is always dangerous
to pass, except in boats of a
peculiar construction. The
waves do not subside simulta
neously with the wind. The
sea continues in an agitated
state for many hours. The air
being little agitated or none at
all is unable to depress the un
dulation of the sea. and there
fore the waves during a calm
alter a gale rise higher and
their elevated part forms a
more aocurate angle than dur
ing a gale. Such a state of sea
is called a hollow sea.

The Reign of Terror.

foaming steeds by soldiers ridden "
down the streets of Jerusalem and

The same tall form of terror ever

guards of sacred precincts are ever
ready to fly to the front whenever
a revolution in the Church appears
or the" rise of other men appear
who independently declare a new
order of thing or a restoration of
long-forsaken landmarks. ,
Ihus, to-day, the brazen foes of
Union may be seen and heard on
almost every side, lifting high their
hands and .voices,, declaring that
Union cannot and must not be. It
will unsettle the long-established
bodies whose names are written on
centenary monuments and chroni
cled in the archives of history past.
It will strike down the favored pan

to the dust the harpings of a discord

long will they fight to check and pre

consumation of union ' among the

how hard he used his weapons to
spread consternation throughout
tho ranks of Union soldiers, but
havo never known his missile to
effectually route a single soldier. 1
As the Cause of Jesus must un
questionably succeed at all times
and in all its developments, so will
prosper in this, our work of
Union. Let the enemv howl. Let
the croaker croak, and all the host
of sin and satan make terror, yet

The Evils of Sectarian Hierarchy.
lhat every hierophant ! of the
sects will hoot at tho caption of
this article, we feel assured; yet,
nevertheless, we feel impressed that
something should , bo said on this
subject.' We have all been too si
lent in reference to those things
that stand in the way of the useful
ness of the Church, and those per
sons and parties adhering to error
have been permitted to pass along
witnout one word of warning. This
is not right This is not biblical:
for the word of God boldly, con
demns every specie of human me
chanism that stands in tho way of
the prosperity of Zionv"
In the first place, there are no
classes of men on earth 1 that havo
the legitimate right to lay claim to
sucn an .omco, as it is only applica
ble to an order of celestial , beings.
Yet, there is ' to-day a so-called
sacerdotal priesthood that arrogates
tho highest orders and presumes to
dictate to, and lend it, uvot, Uio
Church of Jesus Christ.. It is with
this class of human beings we have
to do. They are to-dav the creiat
inventors and steady perpetuators
of tho weakness of the church
proper, 'and have, with .loud-sound
ing canon, thundered their dic
tates upon the ear of the body of
the church until they are little less
than uods in their own estima
tion and assumptions. Whenever
the people of God are allured into
giving the precedence to a class of
men, as more sacred, and more im
portant and reverenced than simple
servants of Christ, they detract
from Jesus, - rob Him. of pre emi
nence, and lose their confidence
and ' supreme preference for the
Great and only; High Priest and
Head of the" Church. . Such a state
of affairs militates against faith in
Christ, and paralizes the arm of
the Church to such an extent, that
human agencies and human dictum
becomes . the , superior trust, and
source of hope. ) y ,'

people who are unwilling to take
Jesus, and Only Jesus, as their
High Priest, and his law. as all the
constitution they need, but are run
ning after their high hierarchical
functionaries, are only apeing, and
that in an effectual degree what
Romanlsm'has perfected. ' Until
the Protestant Churches have set
tled down, or father, risen up to the
standard of the Apostles and
Christ alone, and become satified
with the plain and humble customs
or equality among all who. preach
Jesus (or so. pretend,) wo cannot
expect other ends than the domin
eering and arrogant' popery , that
has nothing but slavery r for the
masses in Zion. A minister is not
a lord nor a master, but a "servant
of servants' And .while ho should
he respected, loved -and heeded.
"for tho works sake,'J there should
not exist the indicative pomposity
and gaudy superiority of hierarchy,
as seen to-day from almost every .
ecclesiastical quarter. This iin
scriptural lordship, prescriptive and
intolerant in the abstract, is con
tinually keeping thousands 'of
heaven-ordained men from the work
of . the ministry and the harvest of
the world, for no other reason than
show of authority and fear of su
periority. The (sacred) tribunes
must guard the "Lord s vineyard,
and "open and shut" as they please,
no difference how loud the Master
may call to the humble plebian or
weary, hard-fisted yeoman. , . The
rules of hierarchy must suffer no in
fringement; they must direct the
men who would work for God and
mankind. Men may perish., but
the system of man-made power
must not be innovated; hence, see
the hosts whom Jesus has called
from almost every walk, kept down
and back, deprived of their freedom
or their right until Bome conference
or synod or.ioard of education says
they may go, If the strictest care
is not taken and all who apply for
the office of the ministry, a bad
precedent may be established, and
a rule trampled under foot, and hie
rarchy be desecrated. We ' have
reached a time when the keeping of
no man's conscience and convic
tions should be entrusted to the ad
judication of men who "lord it over
God's heritage;" but when all men,
feeling the voice within calling them
to the special work of winning
souls to Christ, should go and not
wait, . only so that they have the
commendation of good moral char
acter vouched for by the Church to
which they belong. . ' :
The Christian Union have , as
cended to the New Testament and
divinely ordained rule. We have
no hierarchy. Ihere are no high
functionaries to say who shall and
who shall not preach, and through
whose official bands. .God's chosen
ministers must pass, as through the
clutches .of a Pope, Potentate or
Bishop. The only tribunal to which
men, feeling a call to the ministry,
must go aside from God, is tho lo
cal church, of which they are mem
bers, and from which thoy obtain
such endorsement as will give them
influence -among strangers, and
meet the demands of the law of tho
land. The people the members
of the churches say who of their
members : shall be recognized as
suitable persons to fill the office of
servant in the Church of God. The
ministry " belongs"" to"" God and
the Church, and not the Church
and as it were God. too.) be-.
long to a set of hierarchs and lords
who rule to gain, or ruin to erat-
fy their pride and power; Ivery
local church can send as many of
their number as they think proper
out into tho field to gather sheaves
in the Lord s name. The churches
are the ' electoral college of the
ministry. We care not how many
go forth crying, "behold tho Lamb!"
Would to God that every member
of the church felt that ho or she
must win souls to Christ, and al
though all might not fill the ofllce
of minister in the legal sense, all
could be ministers in the spiritual
sense. V hue the Christian Union
does not have any hierarchy, yet
it is strict as tho Bible in ita
endorsement of men, and no man
can be a minister among us unless
he is a member of some one of the
churches ...of ChrM. associated in '
this Union, which church sruarda
his morals and directs his ordina
tion with much prayer and serious
deliberation. Nor can any Council
ordain a person or recogiize a per
son as members thereof, unless such
person has the endorsement of a
local church. Hero the people rule
