But al.s, it wwa too Into tbo suffocating smoke and roaring; flumes forced her back, and In nn agony which none Dut a bereaved mother knows, she exclaimed, Oh, my child, my c hild I I have saved my goods, but I have lost my child . 80 will It be with mnny a one at the last, who, "careful and troubled about many things, has forgotten his soul. , ' lEOt a eood trade, will one say but lost my bouP I trot office, will another say but lost my Boul: I cot friends, but (iod is mine enemy; I got pleasure, but now I am In ruiim I got the world, but alas, I am now In hell, too poor, too holpless to obtalu a drop of water to cool my parched tongue I The loss of the soul Is a loss Irreparable. Other losses may bo repaired, but there Is no second soul for him who has lost one. Reader, take care of thy soul first, other matters after wards; for though the body dies, the soul lives. And now, If ever, it mutt be saved. "Now," emphatically, "Is the accented time:" and now "is tho day ot salvation." Religion Herald. SUMMARY OF t.ENEKAl. CHURCH NEWS. FRIENDS. The Society of Friends has been reported to bo dying out, but according to their official statement, this docs not appear to be the ease. At the just ending yearly meeting of the Ortho dox body In this city, It was reported that their numbers had increased by about 1500 durinij the past year, and there are signs of renewed activity and vigor In the body which give promise of a long lifc-tcnure. The interest taken in Sunday Schools is a good evidence of . this, as well as the decline of exclusive ness. as shown by a resolution at the late yearly meetings of the society, that the busi ness meetings of the society should not be re stricted to members alone, but that any persons Interested In their proceedings might attend. There are twelve independeutyearly meetings of Friends; that of London, where the records are preserved from the year 1073, being the oldest. The number of members in England It 13,815, while there Is an attendance of non-members to the number of 3!5!. There is one yearly meeting In Ireland, one in Canada, and nine in the United States, viz.: New England, New York, Phila delphia, Baltimore, North Carolina. Ohio, Indi ana, WeRtern Indiana, and Iowa. The Increase of membership has been rapid of late years In the South and West, and new settlements of Friends are forming In Kansas and Missouri. The total membership is estimated at about 82.000. First day schools have been largely established in the "West. In the State of Indiana alone there are 178 such schools, with 1121 teachers and 13,12:? pupils. In North Carolina a Sunday Normal school has been established. The Friends have three colleges in this country, viz., llaverford College, in Pennsylvania; Earlham College, in Kichmond.Ind.; andW'hittier College, at Salem, In Iowa. They have also large boarding-houses nt West Town, la.: Providence, R. I.; Union Springs, N. Y.; New Garden, N. C, and other places N. Y. Evening Post. ' PRES11YTERIAN. .'The United Presbyterian Assembly pro nounced, at its late meeting, in favor of- allow ing a marriage with a deceased wife's sister, notwithstanding one of the laws of tho Church forbids a widower's marriage within any nearer degrees of consanguinity to his deceased wife than to himself. Tho Scotch Presbyterian Assemblies havo l)ccn holdinsr their annual meetings. Tho United Presbyterians expressed their general satisfaction with Mr. Oladstonc's Diecndowmcnt bill, but protested against the grants proposed for May nootu College and for the Irish Presbyterians as exorbitant and objectionable. The number of congregations was reported at 599, and tho members at 177,905. The Free Church Assem bly's interest was absorbed in the question of union with the United Presbyterians. Negotia tions with a view to union have been making for five years. The difficulty has been a fear on the part of the Free Church that their brethren were not strenuous enough on the duty of tho State to support tho Church; for, though the Free Church refuses aid from the State under the conditions on which the State will give aid, It is firm in the opinion that the State ought to aid in its support. Tho friends of union pressed the measure of continuing a committee on the subject of union, who should do nothing more than report progress a year hence; at which time, alter a period during which the Church might consider the subject, tho Assembly might remit tho proposition to the presbyteries for their decision. After bitter opposition by Dr. Horatius Bonar and others, it was carried by an overwhelming vote. In 1807 the vote for tinion was about S$ to 1, in 1808 it was 4 to 1, and now is nearly 5 to 1. lue uiscussiou was pro- traded till long after midnight, and it was half past 1 when the vote was taken. Dean Stanley was present till the end of the debate. The meeting of the Assembly of the Established Church was of no special interest. Indepen dent. ' The corner-stone of a new church edifice was laid at Goshen, N. Y., May 11. The church Was organized in 1720. The number of graduates from theological Institutions this year was 101. They were di vided among , the different seminaries as fol lows; Princeton, 23; Allegheny, 14; Chicago 14; Union, 37; Auburn, 14; Lane, 9. Kev. Henry B. Smith, D. D., says the Euan gelUt, was, at last advices, in tho south of France, slowly recovering from the prostration . Induced by many years of exhausting labor. i A correspondent of the EoanaeUst thus de- scribes the success that has attended the labors' rof Rev. J. B. Dunn, of the Beech Street Church, New York. "Church income raised from f 1900 to 48000 in a year, the membership increased by . one hundred and eighty, an empty honse now . filled in the aisles with camp-stools, and $30,000 . raised to sweep off an old debt in a day! Tho ' man who has done this great year's work is no genius, but a 'terrible toiler,' loves to save souls, aud has got hold of the Scotch-Irish clement and the j ouug men." j Mr. Edward Kiggs was ordained in New , York on the 13th ln-." He is to go as a mission ary to Turkey. ' " METHODIST. Peter Matthews, a f ull-bloodud Indian, for . nierly a private in Company E, 40th Iowa In fuutry, is preparing to become a Methodist mis- Blonnry. The Methodist preachers of New York have m Instructed a committee to select places for street preachiug, and to ask tho Mayor for leave to occupy them. The largest Methodist salary paid in New , England is $2500 and house-rent, to the pastor of Tremont Street Church, Boston. The largest ' membership, 048, with 48 probationers, is that of St. Paul' Church, Lowell. ' Several of the Methodist bishops. Including: Bishops Morris, Simpson, and Kingsley, have declared for lay representation, lue elections held thus far indicate that it will pass by a largo vote. Those .reported by tho -.Methodist ( are 1401 for It to 598 against. The Chl catro Advocate has reports of 1792 votes for and 223 against the measure. The Pittsburg Advocate has reports of 1871 for to 458 against it. About three-fourth of the members stay away from the polls. . ' Bishop Simpson tlitw defines the plan sub l niittcd to the churches for action. The plan, he a ii wnul'l nrt oilmtt nnv lnvinnn into the An- 1 nuaf Conference, nor give them anything what ever to do with th appointing of preacher. But fromj the larger conferences two laymen are ' to be sent to the General Conference, and from the smaller ones ono. When the General Con - lurence was so organized, the preacher would , vote on any proposed measure, ana, u carnea, It would bo voted on bv the laity, and, if car- ' tied, would then become a law. Neither the i lergy nor the laity could do anything without , the concurrence of the other branch of the con '' Terence. Thls.lt was said, . would be a check upon, Jtaftty and inconsiderate legislation. tho I tortliodipt ministry for nearly fifty-three years , and Is now nn effective Presiding Elder of the Wyoming Conference, celebrated his golden wedding on June 10, in Scrunton, ra. The first class graduated at Drew Seminary received their diplomas May 20. BATTIST. The Sabbath School of tho Memorial Baptist Church, northeast cornor Broad and Master streets, celebrated their first jubilee meeting on Thursday evening la' t. The chapel was taste fully decorated. Over the pulpit, suspended from an arch, was nn elegant bell of the choicest flowers. The school, as well ns the church, Is, in the most flourishing condition. Rev. P. S' Ilcnson, I). D., is tho pastor. Kev. Moses Rowley, Secretary of the Wis consin Baptist Missionary Society, furnishes tho Standard with tho following figures: "At the meeting of the society, nt Ma.o Manle, May 25, the condensed report of their missionaries ex hibited the following as their first quarter's labor, equal to one missionary ono year and nine weeks: 150 sermons In thirty churches; 2 councils and 05 other meetings attended; 494 families religiously visited; 0 times ordinance of Lord's Supper administered; 1 new church and several Sabbath Schools organized; $255recclvod into the treasury, and over $400 pledged; 5279 miles travelled In performing these labors. Tho eocicty was organized in December last, and commissioned Its thee first missionaries with out a dollar in Its treasury." We cut the following paragraph from the New York Tribune of last Tuesday morning. It is one of the signs of the times, and indicates an enterprise und vigor which, we doubt not, will yield a large and beneficent result: "The American Baptist Home Mission Society re ceived, some time since, a promise from the orlioers of the I'nlon Pacific Hallway of lands on which to locate missions on the line of tne road. In pursu ance of that Hrratipemrnt, a committee of the Home Mission Society, consisting of the Kev. Dr. K. K. I.. Taylor, ami Kev. Dr. J. I Ruckus, Corresponding Secretaries of the Hoard; the Rev. VVayland llovt, of Brooklyn, a member of the Board, ami the Kev. Dr. A. P. Mason, of Boston, Mass., the District Sec retary of New England, will start this evening for Chicago, where they will take the I'nion Pacific Ratloiul for California. They will Jhe accompanied by several friends, three ladies being In the party. Thpy propose to select sites along the line of the road for the estab lishment of missions, the lots selected by them to be given by the management of the roads, both on the Union and the Central Pacific lines. The party will stop at Virginia Cltv, Carson, Denver, Central City, and Nevada City, and possibly at other places on the route, and attend to mission Interests. On their arrival In San Francisco, the committee pro pose to visit the Important cities and towns In California ami Oregon, on the Paoltle coast. They expect to be gone between three and Tour months. CONGREGATIONAL. Rev. Samuel Nott, who, at one time, for twenty years was pastor of the church iuWure ham, Conn., died on the 1st at the residence of his son in Hartford, at the age of eighty-one. lie graduated at Union College in 1808,'and was a member of the second "class at the Andovcr Theological Seminary (.1810); wns ordained 0th of February, 1812, and went out with Gordon Hall, Adonlram Judson, Samuel Newell, and Luther Rice, as tho first company of missiona ries sent out by' the American Board. Ho was classmate at Andovcr with Drs. Gardiner. Spring and R. S. Storrs. Rev. M. Gerould, after a ministry of more than forty years lu Lnngdon, has resigned on account of the failure of his eyes. A new church of eighty-one members, called the Pilgrim Church, was organized in Providence, June 2. , Mr. 8. V. MeDullle was ordaiued at Craw fordsville, Iowa, May 25. A church of nineteen members has just been formed at Cheyenne, on the Pacitic Railroad, under the auspices of tho Homo Missionary So ciety. Cheyenne is an important point. It has become the capital of Wyoming, has the rail road shops of a division, has the Denver Branch, fort kus8cii, witn lZW) soldiers, and 5000 popu lation. What gives nn appearance of fictitious strength to Roman Catholics is tho fact that they mass Into a single church what would make three or four Protestant congregations. Two Congregational churches lu South Wey mouth, Mass one of them 150 and tho other 250 years old propose to gain this advantage by uniting and building a new church. They are of about eijual strength, and will have a con solidated membership of 250. A fine large edi fice will be a bond of union between them. Independent. EPISCOPAL. The parish of thcIIoly Trinity, in New York has just closed its fifth year. It supports, says the Protest an t Churchman, five mission chapels and Sunday Schools, a Dispensary for the sick, several beds in St. Luke's Hospital and Home for the incurables, mothers' meetings, sewing schools, employment societies, and other con nected charities. There are more than 1300 teachers and scholars connected with the Sun day School departmcet, whose missionary con tributions tor the past live years have amounted to $8577. The church school numbers about 400 children and teachers. In money, during this period, (248,401 have been contributed. On the -Situ ult. the Zion Church was con secrated in Fonda, N. Y., by Bishop Doaue. An extensive religious interest, under Epis copal influence, amounting to quite a revival, is reported in the Lexington (Va.1 Military Institute. The report of the committee of the Epis copal Convention of Virgiula on the subject of innovations is very severe against all High Church dogmas and practices. The Episcopal Convention of Connecticut met last week. A plan of life Insurance was laid before the convention, by which the parish should by an annual payment of $30 insure the rector s nie lor fwoo. liisuop imams . con firmed 1107 candidates tho last year. The Rhode Island Episcopal Convention voted to pay the fees of the counsel which pro secuted Kev. J. r. uuDDard, niscnurcn not being required to contribute. The motion to pay Mr. Hubbard's counsel was defeated. The last suit against the Trinity Church cor poration is based on the ground that it has for feited its rights to its funds, because it has ceased to be "Protestant Episcopal." Its rector having Joined Dr. Ewer In calling Protcstautism o fail ure; and also because tho corporation will give no account of its funds, and perverts them to the destruction of morals by leasing its property to those who keep houses of ill-fame. The Episcopal Convention of Ohio on June 3d thanked Bishop Mcllvaino for his letter on me rraycr isook. i no evangelicals were in a majority, and successfully urged the advisability oi revision oi me prayer ujok. An Episcopal minister at Lafavetto. In diana, has been publicly censured by his assist ant bishop for attending the Black Crook. His church, the wealthiest in the State, sustains him. Bishop Mcllvaino lately published a long letter to a clergyman who had dilUcullies about the Romanizing germs of tho Prayer-book, ex plaining them till away. This letter was seut to all Evangelical bishops, and their opinion on tho uujuct uesireo. jney nave an endorsed it, ftronirlv uuholdinir the I'llurni'tar r.f t.h Prnvor. book. These letters are now published, with the object of draw in y off from tlutlr mii-mian tlm radical Episcopalians who meet this month In convention at Chicago, and who are moving for a revision of the Prayer-book. " They are thus informed that they cannot have any sympathy or aid even from the most advanced" of their bishops. CATHOLIC. A Manchester (N. II.) clergyman lately stated that the 7000 Catholics of that city have for three years raised more money for religious purposes than tho 20,000 Protestants; that their church property was worth twice as much as that of the Protestants, and their church attend ance as large as theirs. In a recent olllclal report of tho Greek Church of Russia, itwh stated that durlnB 1SU7 there were 13,039 persons who left the Roman Catholic for the Greek Church, mostly ii the western provinces. Entire communities came over, with the priest at their head. j An Austrian Catholic bishop was lately ar rested for refusing to obey a legal summons, and was brought by the police before tUti court. "A Rpv. T)r. Oonre Peck, who 1ms lieen in secular priest has been condemned to an ordi- nary Jail, instead of being confined to a religious . house, as the Concordat stipulated. A great Catholic meeting took place In tho Church of Innspruck last week. Count Man- eano, ino imperial delegate, endeavored to pre vent It, but was driven from the assembly, and was obliged to ask tho protection of the gendar merlo, having used expressions Insulting to the Church and the Holy Father. Tho Tyrolose are tho true sons of their fathers of tho year '9, and worthy fellow-countrymen of Andreas Hofor. The object of the meeting was to protest against tho secular schools which tho Government i at tempting to force on the Tyrol. At Prague the Minister of Public Instruction has Issued a cir cular blaming tho authorities of the University or Having permitted an address to tne rope on his jubilee. REFORMED.
