Every one feels that the heniousness of sin is set forth by the greatness of the sacrifice which was required to atone for it. Hence it is that infidels in order to do away the necessity cf redemption by the blood of Christ, either deny the apostacy of man wholly, or labor to lessen his criminalitv. - m . . .. . I am aware that there are objections to this doctrine, viz : 1. A finite creature cannot do an infin ite act It is readily conceded that cer tain powers are requisite, in order to the commission of sin at all. A mere brute cannot commit sin, because he possesses not the powers to judge of the moral fit- ness of things, or to distinguish the mor malignity'and criminality of sin. If none happiness and dignity. - And who can paint the horrid scenes of wickedness and misery that have marked and blackened the history of the human race, from the fall down to the present day ? And above 9 H, the malice, Contempt, blasphemy, and Hellish cruelty with which the Lord of vjrloiy -God manifest in the flesh was reated, and his unparalleled anguish, his groans, and sweat, and blood, his sorrows of soul even unto death, and? that tocr be fore the application of any engine of ex- ernal torture ? And what is this but an llustration of the awful nature of sin, and the tremendous weight of the guilt of man: kind For he was wounded for our Lnsgressions; he was bruised for our niquiues ; the chastisement our peace was upon him ; and by his stripes we are healed."

BAPTIST HISTORY AGAI.V. To the Churches in this Slate : Dear Brethren It is very desirable, in order that the history of the Churches may be an interesting and religious work, that there be something more than the -mere statement of facts, and dates that there be interspersed some moral and religious re flections on the workings of the Holy Spir it on the human heart. The dealinT3 of God with his People in answer to prayers, &c. The blessings attendant on faithful ness in the discharge of duty. The benefits of spiriiual-mindedness, of devotednes3 to his service, and diligence in cur callinsr. with the effects of deeds of charity on the benevolent heart, and of the dealings of God to the charitable. Some death-bed tri umphs &c. Also reflections on the disad vantages attending the neglect of duty, with some cases stated. Barrenness of mind, leanness of soul, temporal embarrassments in consequence of parsimony the influence of example, &c. But. use your own liberty brethren, yet, it is much to be desired that the work, if published, may serve to promote the cause of piety and true Godliness. That it may be comforting and wanning to the heart of the saint, and awakening and instructing to the sinner, thai future generations may be benefited and the cause of God advanced. Yours in love, Amos Churchill. A Learned Mechanic. in my last I spoke of a mechanic who is engaged daily in his business, who surprised me with his intelligence and learning. His familiarity with the Bible was extraordi nary, and would have done credit to any public preacher of the gospel; and few indulge in comparisons on the superior force of the Greek and Hebrew to the English translation, on passages comment- I bounds to the ma- verse.

But what is the the light and trifling manner in which sin I at this time refer, is a number of the On presenting the promise touching the spread of the gospel among all nations before the end come, as an objection to his views, he considered that to be rapidly going on. The Bible, he said, had been translated already into two, hundred lan guages, and might soon be ' translated in to the residue; and that within twenty- seven years there would; be the most as tonishing developments the world ever witnessed. On inquiring of him the ef fect of these views on his own mind," he informed us that it was most purifying and delightful. It broke the charm of earth, produced constant watchfulness, absorbed the soul with the preciou3ness of the Re deemer, and made death familiar end pleasant at any time: and to be mado the instrument of extending the knowledge of Christ, he felt that anything could be cheerfully endured. However you may be disposed to dissent from some of his views, he leaves you in no doubt of the transcendent influence of the cross on his own heart. The glitter of earth grows sensibly dim, in contrast with the glory with which his conversation invests things unseen and eternal. His conversation has this important effect, however you may differ from him. You are impress ed more deeply with the worth of the Bi ble, of the necessity ol studying it more closely, and you form the determination to do so. But it is not only with the scriptures aud the ancient languages that he is familiar, but with the writings of the most eminent theologians of the present and former days. What an illustration is here furnished of what an individual can do, whose mind is concentrated on a par ticular subject, and bent 'on the .improve- ment of a few hours each day at the clos I of labor I Probably this man's natural capacity may not be superior to the gen erality of his fellow-men : but by the as siduous cultivation of it in the recess of labor he has obtained a fair standing with men of high intellectual attainments. The idea that persons occupied in me chanical labor, or labor in the field, can not make important literary advancement, is therefore a great mistake: and the mis take ought to be corrected without delay. We ought to have mechanics and farmers filling places in our legislative bodies with as much ability as professional men. The genius of our government and the nature of our free institutions demand in telligence in the people extensively ; and the rectification of the -miserable error, that apprentices, and those engaged in la bor through the day, have full right to appropriate in idleness and follv, misscall ed recreation, the hours between toil and sleep, is imperiously called for. Those especially who proless the name ol Jesus, ougnt to leei tne auiy imperative on tnem o make all the progress possible, at least in divine knowledge the knowledge lur nished in their Bibles. The manner in which this individual has divided his time, or the course he has pursued, in acquiring this great amount of knowledge, I am net able to say ; but the way the "learned blacksmith," of Worcester, Elisha Burritt, whose name is well known, commenced the study of the whilst the iron was heat ing, to have his Latin grammar open, and Inn eorn. carmnn nott oiuiuu ho wuuimence seeking their salvation.

He then offer me a new coat ; I look on my old blanket ; I say, this gocd for j nothing ; I fling it right away, and accept the new coat.

Tuesday, 9 hours at labor also read 50 lines in Horace, 50 in Ho mer, and 20 in Hebrew or Syriac," un til at last he made himself more or less acquainted with fifty languages. It was well, as a distinguished foreigner has re- iriarked, that his study was thus interrupt ed by his daily toil. It has probably sav ed his valuable life for many years to his country. Had he not been, compelled, from the poverty oi his parents, to appren tice himself to a trade; (which he did of his own accord, from the consideration ol the. numerous family of his father, and an independence of spirit,) but been able to devote his whole time to study, he would have made a short race of it, and the world have been but little the better, for all his acquirements.
