' -The New York llerebjsite whatever ob jections may be urged. U.rsligioB props gaodism as system, there kail be no doobt that it has ever been the artive inalrameol of civilization. Whilst, tbertfbre, we may not always approve the steps Ukro by the differ ent Christian rhorrhea 10 iiffuse their doe- tines amongst the various b.nbariou tribes snd nations, w caunoj be a recogoizing Hi benefits which, on thC lue, they have con ferred upon the eomm"f pf the world and BfAjii- taivretti odiuanity gcprily- we, in euurso, h--orJMo . wilh the rest ef mankind, have a leaning towards a particular creed; but we nevertheless regard with satis faction the tff.irts of all the various denoml nations of Christiana lo open up new fields for their labors amongst the vast masse of human beings who are still plunged In the darkness and intellcctuaPaloth of pa ganism. One of the most promising result of the recent trestie w ith China is the ergerncs which has been displayed by the different Christian sects to ktsil themselves of the opportunities affoiderl by them of carrying the light of Ihe gosptl into the heart of that vast empire. The ink on those instruments was scoreely dry when vast preparations wers everywhere sel on fuol to recruit missiona ries for this great work. The Pope, alive lo the importance of drawing within the folds of the Catholic Church a population out numbering thnt of Europe, nnd speculating probably on adding something substantial to its patrimony, immediately set about organ, izing n grand scheme of pecuniary contribu tions nil over the world, wilh the view of enabling him to aend nn immense army of Catholic missionaries to this new field. And in order to fncilitato tho work of proselytinm, the Jesuits, already established there, dis patched four nntive students to Home, in or der thnt they mny be better educated for the priesthood and sent back to uid iu the spirit ual regeneration of their countrymen. France, to whoso efforts the moat important of the religious privileges wrung from the Chinese are due, is also shout to forward immediately, with the sanction of his Holi ness, n number of young priests, drilled un der the supervision of her archbishops, nnd who will remain directly under their order. The missiyrj will be protected by war vessels, led by the .Sfmf.

Mr. Vrooman, of Can ton Mission, tjked the American peoplo for 350,000 missieinries to convert China to t.'hrislinnty, nhl 60,000 yearly recruits to keep the numier complete. In addition to these ho demands 1,000,000 of teachers a n number suflieieri, we should think, to keep up tho reputation of tho church mili tant, iu case persttsive measure should fail. The magnitude of these preparations, bucked ns they will e by tho authority of treaties nnd the preseice of numerous ves sels of war, leaves no ioubl ns to the proxi mate opening np of tits immense empire to tho purifying iiifluonoia of Christianity and the benefits of Westeti civilization. Where Ihs missionaries onc obtain a footing, we may reckon upon llieie results follow ing iu his train. But the misiionary would be pow erless in Chilli, nnd e sewherr, without Ihe presence and l.ld of tliesword, Mm has tho profession of Hie soldier is decried, nnd Ihe ravages he is romprlled io commit groaned over, ills ho who is in renlily the pioneer - I 'm' ." - r m i . ilization. In the fiinrcli ol human progress the soldier moves first, then the missionary, nnd after him tlie merchant. Il is a hopeful and cheering feature in Ihe solution of this Chincso problem a problem w hich hn vex ed the world tc r centuries that these suc cessive cfindrlicn of progression nre being fit li led. One iniimiatu t Inns with mis sionaries, and i: adhesion to Western idens and ininciiiles will follow ns a mntter of course. Il is i 0t simply the propagsndi.m of religious d tlrines, but of the political nnd commercial, systems of their respective Countries that 'hey will carry out. Some of these political systems may, and undoubtedly will prevail, to the exclusion of others; but tho less fitvnrid nations may console them slves with tint reflection that lbs commer cial advantages, hich will be secured by the labors of the Missionaries can be monopoliz ed bv none, rid thai the world gensHy inn-l p irlicipj in their benefit.
