THE VOICE FROM AFRICA, AND

A Yoke is heard from Africaner,

'Tis said you're christians, and if so,
Then feel for other's misery woe .
Ono prayerful thought on rne bestow i

If you shall disregard their cry,
" Remember there is one on high,
Who will f efuse to hear your cry;
When you ask" mercy he'll deny.

'Tis, Liberty heart cheering sound.

When she shall droj the final tear.

It is remarked by experienced chris
tians, that God seldom, or never, grants a
revival when the state of religion in the
church is low, and for the best of reasons.
If the church should gain converts while
religion is declining, they will only come
up to the standard of the church that re
ceives them. The higher the standard of
religion is in a church, not only the more,
but the nurer will be her converts. So

continue to allow oi war, war win con
tinue to the end of the world, and heathens
will fall into endless perditi6n over the
stumbling block which professing chris
tians lay in their way. The heathen can
not be converted until the church renoun
ces and denounces war. They would only
be converted to a fighting Christianity
which would bring the millenium no near
er. But . let the church of Christ re
nounce all the abominations of the world,
and particularly war, and the heathen,
seeing the purity and peace of Christianity,
will, of themselves, flock to her, "as
clouds and as doves to their windows."
The conversion of the heathen will be the
effect, and not the cause, of the renuncia-

GREAT AMERICAN WORK.
Illustrated with between three and four
hundred Engravings.
A MERICAN JOURNAL OF 6CT-
ENCE AND USEFUL KNOWL
EDGE. So numerous are the produc
tions of the Press, in this period of cheap
literature, that an individual who proposes
to make an addition to them, should be
well convinced that the wants of the com
munity are such as require it. But every
class requires a book adapted to itself, and
that book should contain such matter as
will convey new and interesting informa
tion, not speculative and useless descrip
tion, which only retards the acquisition of
more solid attainments. Practical and
useful knowledge, adapted to the necessi
ties of society, will always find a market,
and be sought after with an avidity pro
portionate to its estimate and importance. -The
thirst for knowledge, which so high
ly distinguishes the present period, shsuld
be hailed with universal satisfaction, and
it is a cheering reflection, that the door is
so widely thrown open, that none are so
poor as to be debarred. The success that
has attended the dissemination of the Pen
ny Magazine, has induced the proprietors
to issue this prospectus, for the publication
of the American Journal of Scien
tific and Useful Knowledge, and it is
hoped that its merits will be such as to
entitle it to a liberal share of public pat
ronage, without clashing with the interests
of others, or of underrating the merits
which many of them undoubtedly pos
sess. The Editor will take a general
range through the field of usefulness.
The Journal embraces Biographical
Sketches of eminent men, Historical Tales,
Discoveries, Inventions, Natural History,
Chemistry, Shrewd Observations; &c. all
I calculated to expand the intellect, improve
j the moral powers and convey useful in
' formation.
