THE SA AC TI F YI SO roWElt OF CHRIS TIAN ASSURANCE. Wc become partakers of tho Gospel throusU faith. "Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou Shalt be saved." Jesus says, "I am thy sal vation;" exclaiming on the cross, "It is finished." Let us ask ourselves, What arc the properties of this grace? And what the extent of that sal vation that becomes ours upon the exercise of faith? Faith is trust, the more child-like the more spiritual. How simply does the little one trust the provision made for Lis dally recurring wants by a loving father! It never occurs to bim that the supply may fail, or the love that makes it his grow cold: he is simply a receiver, and grateful obedience and love are all the re turn he can render to his parents. So Christian faith takes the rich provision of our Heavenly Father's love, Christ. The fountain of supply, being the Divine nature, is exhaustlcss. The child like, filial communion between the saved sinner and the Holy Ghost is tho pur chase f the blood of Christ, which, cleansing from all sin. takes away every barrier to this sweet intercourse, uay by day he feeds upon the manna fresh from heaven, thus renewing nis strength, and peace, and joy in believing. Believer, let not your subtle adversary tempt you to look within your own heart for assur ance of your interest in the great salvation. jv en me graces 01 tuo spirit yoi may discern here will be so marred by indwelling" sin, that doubt and fear will be the result of ail such Jn rospectiou. Obey the Holy Spirit; follow his ight and guidance. He will reveal Jesus within j-ou. He w ill take of tho things of Christ, and Bhowthem unto you. "Bcholdingas inaglass the glory of God in Christ Jesu.you will be changed unto the same image from glory to glory as by the Spirit of God." He will enable you to be lieve your spiritual inheritance limited only "by your Saviour's possessions. Your faith incorpo rating you into His mystical body, you are one vfiia mm. By this vital union onlv can von hn nr.rAnnrr.Vi. ened to bring forth tho fruits of holiness to the praise and glory of God, your anchor not being cast w ithin the leaky vessel: but in the cleft rock you w ill le taved now and forever. Sf.M.UAKY OF fcllUKCH NEWS. EPISCOPAL. The Kev. Dr. Milo Mahaa, of Baltimore, Aid., has been elected Professor of Systematic Divinity in the Episcopal General Theological Seminary 54 New York. The Bishop of New York, In accordance with the wish of the other four Episcopal bishops of the State, will soon issue a call for a meeting next October to organize the Federate Council authorized by the late General Con vention and so bitterly opposed by the Evan gelicals. It seems that ritualism does not al wars car. I even financially. A New York paper thus speaks t Rev. Dr. Ewer's church: "The ministrations if Christ Church arc conducted bv the llev. Mr. Brown, the assistant minister; the rector, the t;ev. ur. Lver, ueing aosent in Europe on a six mouths' leave, which it is understood will be ex tended to a full year, and may posibly result In the permanent dissolution of" his relations with the church. In fact, it is claimed bv some of the older members of tho parish that in no other way can the church be saved from absolute bank rupts. Although the congregation gathered on Sundays nearly mis me cnurcn, it is largely composed of curiosity seekers and strangers, and but eishtr pews are rented, ino current expenses of the church are about $20,000 annually, requiring to meet them the rental of icvery pew. owing to tne paucity ot pen holders ft Hoatincr debt was incurred of about ijn.',wi', uesiues rriucu tuciu ib a iuonjjage on Lhe church of $40,000, anrt the rcctorv was nortgaged for more than $30,000. As a last itesort the rectory, which QrirlnalJy cost f 40.000. yvas sold, realizing barely 6uilicient above the nortgage to pay tne floating debt or the parish. Kev. J. Anketell, an Episcopal clergyman, vhose especial mission it is to prepare for a mion with the Oriental churches, has been irsrcntlv ndvoeatimr such a revision of tho Is'icene Creed adopted by the Anglican and American Episcopal Churches as will leave out Jhc ".tilioqur" clause, and leave the doctrine of the procession of the Spirit from the Father and hot al.-o from the Son. 1 his is the doctrine of the Greek Church, as distinguished from the iKoinan addition to the original Nicene Creed. A circular letter scut by .Mr. Anketell to the American uisuops nas been answered by seven teen of them. Six express themselves in favor it the amendment, six against It, and live are nion-committal. Bishop Smith, the presiding ishop, says in his leply: "And oh : how much more profound is mv aston- shment ami regret that any of the ministers of hrist shou'.il be so engrossed with such questions is this, and such puerilities as vestments and pro- essioui, lomenegiecioi preacr.ing I 'limtana mm rucliied,' and a more diligent and faithful care for an mortal souls." In returning to the Church of England, Mr. foulkes. in order to avoid the necessity of vreed. was allowed by the bishop to repeat it in ic original urecK. PRESBYTERIAN.

METHODIST. -The asfets of the Boston Theological Insti tution nre $200,000. New buildings are soon to be erected. The Methodist Church South has abandoned the plan of receiving members on probation. Persons are received into full membership with out six months' trial.

They have S3 candidates lor the ministry and not one bishop. A church in Cold Spring, N. Y., has just been dedicated with tho title of the "Grant M. E. Church." The Baltimore Episcopal M,-lhoU.t calls this "ecclesiastical flunkeyism," and says "wc have a new saint In the calendar." 'i"- Pierce, the Methodist minister just sent to Salt Lake City, has started congregations in two out-stations. Judges Ilawley and Strickland, of the I nlted States Court, are on the board of counsel attached to his church in Salt Lake City. The Primitive Methodists of England num ber 102,157.

The net increase in church membership the past year On April 23d Rev. W. M. Punshon, chair man of the Wesleyan Church of Canada, ad dressed an oflicial letter to Sir George E. Cartier, Minister of Militia, asking that a Wesleyan minister might be appointed as chaplain for the Methodists among the troops of the Ked Klver expedition. A very curt answer was received, and no Indication given that the request would be even considered. This matter has brought out considerable discussion in Canada on the question of chaplaincies. Sir George E. Cartier, who is a Koman Catholic, and who has been pardoned his sin of once accompanying lhe Oueen to church, has 6o arranged the chap laincies in Canada that, while but 4000 of the 43,000 volunteers are Komauists, they have 12 chaplains, while the Protestants have but one temporary chaplain. CONGREGATIONAL. Kev. Dr. Adams, of Brunswick, Maine, has just resigned a pastorate that has continued for more than forty years. The Second Congregatioual Church in Greenfield, Maes., has just dedicated a fine edi fice, costing about $50,000. But there is a debt of about $20,000. In Vermont the Congregntionalists num ber 18,732, more than two-thirds of whom are women. The Sabbath Schools number 20,044 members, and there are 1W churches and 31 i pattors. w-An F.r.!ish paper announces that the Kev. Newman Hall, in concurrence with tho desire Of the elders of the Surrey Chapel, has just de clined an invitation to a church at Chicago with a ealary of $10,000. C. W.

Ballantine. of Amherst, a missionary's daughter. A church having sent only women repre sentatives to the recent Congregational Conven tion at Obcrlin, Ohio, the question of admitting female delegates was discussed, but was finally laid on the table by a vote of 55 to 53. The Maine "Congregational Conference, meeting in Yarmouth, discussed Pastorates and Stated Supplies and The Bible In Schools. A committee on the question of tho Washburn Will and the Bible Society reported the Bible Society in the right. About a dozen revivals were reported, 843 accessions to the 242 churches; 19,420 members, being an increase of 230; 59 pastors; 112 stated supplies; and 72 vacant churches. LUTHERAN. The St. John's (German) congregation on the Frederick road, just outside of the city limits of Baltimore, formerly served by Mr. Lubkert, but now by Mr. Donner, has lately, by a unanimous vote, resolved that hereafter only such doctrines shall be proclaimed from their pulpit which are based upon the principles of conscience and of evangelical (?) individual church liberty, which, in obscure English, plainly means the-lowest sort of rationalism, and that hereafter no minister of that Church ihall belong to any orthodox Synod! BAPTIST. The Baptists have organized their work in Greece by ordaining Mr. Sakellarios, formerly in the employ of the American and Foreign Chris tian Union. The services were conducted by American Baptists, Mr. Constantino acting as interpieter. A new Baptist church edifice has just been dedicated at Lewisburg. Pa. It Is a stone struc ture. Its cost was $50,000. Its pastor is the Kev. Robert Lowry, recently pastor of one of the most prominent Brooklyn churches. The Kev. Dr. Castle, of West Philadelphia, preached the dedicatory sermon. "The golden age of tho Church not yet passed" was the theme. Ten thousand dollars were raised to aid in liqui dating the church debt. REFORMED (GERMAN).

A Franciscan monk named llotyl, who had written in defense of Dr. Dolllnger, has been summoned to Koine by order of his superior "at recreartdum auintuw," and is now recreating himself in a narrow cell, deprived of books, thus enjoying a Roman summer. THE FKIKXPS. A theological controversy auiontr the Friends of Lancasbiie, involving the questions of Evan gelicalism and Unitarianism, has preceded so far as to be a prominent subject of thought at the annual meeting of the British Friends. Philadelphia Arlora In Jtonlon. The summer season was inaugurated at the Museum last night, by the Craig Burlesque Troupe. Two original pieces by Mr. Craig were given the first a protean farce, A l)res lie tiearsal, amounting to very little, and only tole rable from some of the excellent imitations ot noted actors given by Mr. Craig; and the second a burlesque entitled Jon Juan, which compares favorably.wlth all other burlesques, and would be much more enjoyuble If severely pruned. Mr. Craig himself, ns "Haldee," is au excellent bur lesque actor, and created a capital impression. Of the other members of the company, we may notice, for fivorable mention, Mr. n. Josephs ' '-"it nim is iinmoro, -me mildest mannered man that ever scuttled a ship or cut a throat." The costumes, scenerr. and properties are all ery fine, and the transformation scene at the close Is elegant and eflective. The same bill will be repeated every evenine during the week, and this an Saturday afternoons. Bos ton Traveller, July 0. THE KM Q I ITS OF rrTIHAS. Trouble In the Orrirr-Aitrinpl to Enforce lhe O. M. N.-Moiiif Lodge Ueprlred ( their I'hnrtera. Since the first of June the Grand Chancellor of the Knights of Pythias of the distric t, Mr. F. G. Calvert, has, in compliance with the man date of the Supreme Lodirc, been visitln the several lodges of the district for the purpose of administerinir an additional oath or obligation, known as the O. B. N.; that they are not, nor will become, members of nor fraternize with members of the S. P. K. The action of the Supreme Lodge and Chancellor has created considerable leelirisr in the order here, and in some of the lodges the membership to a man have refused to take the 60-called O. B. X., the principal objection being that it is nn extra obligation, which, it is contended, the Supreme Lodge has no power to impose, as the entire ritual of the order teaches that when the Knight's degree is reached the party ha. taken the highest degree of the order. In some of the lodires. when the lodges as such deter mined not to subscribe to the O. 13. N.. ihn Grand C hancellor demanded the cbnrter and property of the lodge. Several of the iodircs gave up their chartsrs, but denied that tut graiid olLcers had any rluht to the propertv. Damon Lodge, No. 13, located In Green's Hail, on Pennsylvania avenue, between Seventeenth and Eighteen Hi stree ts, was one of the lodges which refused to take the O. B. N., and on Monday, through her Chancellor (H. B. Cattell), surrendered the charter. 'n Moudav ni?ht the members assembled as usual, when they found that the room had been entered and all the paraphernalia and working property had been carried off. A search was made, but unsuccess fully, and an informal meetimr was held, and M essrs. R. A. Bassford and W. Otto were appointed a committee to continue the search, and if necessarj take legal steps to obtain the property. Having satisfied themselves of the manner in which the property was taken, and the place of conceal ment, they yesterday went before Justice Marsh and caused a search-warrant to issue, charging that they had probable cause to sus pect that the goods were concealed in the houses of one of the following gentlemen: Messrs. Lewis B. Parker, Frederick G. Calvert, W. If. Goodacre, J. B. Kuox, W. II. Stewart, or L. T. Parker. The warrant was placed in the hands of Detective Bigley (who Is a member of the order), and he at once commenced his Inquiries, and received an intimation that he would be in possession of them before night. About 5 o'clock P. M. yesterday a huge chest, to the care of Mr. Biglej', was left at police headquarters. In this chest was found all the properly, in good order anfi condition. The paraphernalia was stored at headquarters, and will be held by Mr. Big lev until the case is decided "Washington Star, Jul,' 7. HOYEltXOU SEWAKD. The Noblrnt Art of Ills Life. Recently Senator Carpenter, of Wisconsin, delivered an extemporaneous address before the graduating class of the Columbia Law College, at Washington, from which we take the fol lowing eloquent allusion to a half-forgotten incident in Governor Seward's career. Mr. Carpenter said: And yet the profession has its rewards. "Heaven Is above all yet. There sits a judge," whose approbation is the lawyer's highest reward. And even in this world the profession has its rewards. .Who would think of weighing gold sgainst tears of gratitude, trickling down the cheek of poverty, rescued by your ability, your courage, and your fidelity from unmerited llocm '( Xou- a"4 irem9?1lu?r how Mr, SewarjJ, while at the bar, without fee Or reward, aud braving the uproar of popular clamor, defended a negro against the charge of murder on the plea of insanity, which, in the popular belief, was a falsehood, although the fact was subsequently verified by the death of the negro in an insane asylum. This was years ago prior to the thir teenth, the fourteenth, nud tho fifteenth amend ments to the Constitution and before the uegro became au object of national justice and politi cal a flection. Mr. Seward has since passed through au eventful and illustrious career of public life, during which ho has "sounded all the depths and shoals of honer," and has finally retired to Auburn to collect his thoughts and compose his soul before leaving the shores of time to enter upon an eternal career beyond the celestial gates. And me thinks as he sits in that tranquil retreat, look ing out upon the uneasy and stormy world, where "restless mediocrity" is rising to the sur face to-day to sink out of sight to-morrow, and looking back over the incidents of his busy life, he would not exchange the recollection, the consciousness of duty performed, in rescuing this unfortunate individual of a degraded race, smitten with mental malady, and in peril of the prejudice, the passions, the rage of the popu lace, more fearful than maladies, for the largest fee he ever received, or for the memory of the proudest achievement of his political life.

At Kiverhead, Long Island, the other da', the treasurer de camped with $40CO, all the money of the con cern, whereupon the residents brought in their bills for hay, corn, oats, cider, pork, and other feed for man and beast. The representative of the Long Island Railroad Company also pre sented bills for transportation furnished, but there was no money to liquidate the claims, and the managers aud several of tho actors were ar rested and lodged in jail. The circus property was levied upon, and everything, including tho sawdust, was placed in tho bauds of the Sheriff. There had been no salaries paid for some time, and the actors not arrested had nothing where with to defray their expenses to aud from Kiverhead, whereupon two of them, George Kebbel, of New York, and Hcndrlck F. Gafgen, of Rldgewood, fell back upon their old business, aud look to highway robbery. These clerks of St. Nicholas overcame Mr." Nathaniel Hemp stead in the night time, and deprived him of his day's wages. Yesterday afternoon they were captured on board the mail train in Jamaica, and were locked up. Several other actors are charged with having acted in a like indecorous manner towards the peaceful burghers, who now look upon all bareback riders as barefaced raiders, and will shun them accordingly for all time henceforth forever. Among the animals seized by the Sheriff were the lions belonging to Miss Minnie Wells. This young but muscular Amazon proposes to take tcr case into court. The Dlrttepe Vale, It seems very strange that the family of au eminent man who, dying, left a large fortune t3 his heirs, should consent to tho dispersion at public Eale of the articles especially associated with his memory.

Scarcely is the body of the great novelist cold in tho vau'.t in Wetiulnster Abbey, when a sale of his pictures aud other works of art is announced to take place at the rooms of a leading London auction eer. Many of the articles to be sold are pre sents to the deceased, or portraits of himself, or illustrations of his works painted by the best artists. For instance, there is the celebrated portrait by Maclise, representing Mr. Dickens as he appeared in the Hush of early manhood in the year 1839.
