' '"' Christianity in Japan., Our intelligent Correspondent in California has; in lhe following letter, taken a view of the 'results to be hoped from the late Treaty with Japan, and given to facts in reference to former attempts to plant the Christian religion in those fertile islands, which will be read with great interest.; If the door is open, let us enter without delay, and give them the richest, of all books, the blessed Gospel.pf tlio- I'nnce of Feace. Correspondence of tbe N. Y. Observer.i Sak Fbaxcisco, June 30, 1834 The result of the Treaty with Japan, it is most dtiucult to predict. One may take a dark view of the question, and fear that .the provisions of the treaty, yielded without bloodshed or . experience of our real power, will be evaded by rerbal construc tions, by official interferences with interior "trade, by reiterated delays; ua has been the case so fur as the Chinese have been able; in their intercourse with western powers. Our officers were allowed when at Kanugawa to make no purchases, even of the smallest trifle. They report the Japanese prices as higher than our own for their products, and think trade must be slow in effecting an cn trance, a uo not see tuai a word was said m re ference to permission to preach the gospel. Prom the spirit of President Fillmore's instructions orig inally, aud the care .then manifested to disavow any connection of the expedition with, religious objects, it is greatly to be feared that the matter of Chris tianity was kept out of. sight. It is to be hoped, however, at least, that our people have had the. manliness, nnd felt sufficiently the sense' of solemn obligation to a Christian nation and to its pod, to explain the difference between-the religion of the Bible and that baptized diablerie vhosc works hayc led the people of Japan to entertain such incon- trollabli' hatred and loathing towards the name and cross of Jesus Christ. Tlie expedition publishes too 'that the Empire furnishes a fine market for "liquors, champagne, cordials,'' Arc., which, says one, are among "the ar ticles upon which they set most value, and are mos-t desirous ot possessing;" or, to use the eloquent and suggestive language of another correspondent, "Whiskey, champagne, cherry cordial, and almost' any other liquids that will 'make drunk come,' I should think would pay, if the natives are as ready to buy it as they arc to drink it when given them.' This, feature of the epistles from Japan is so prom inent as tp have attracted general attention here., What does it mean? Have any Indian .Commis sioners accompanied this expedition, armed with that humiliating auxiliary to American diplomacy which has gained us so many coveted square miles, and appended so many vermtculated signatures to the treaties with "white brothers"? "What! Shall we imitate France at Tahiti and the Sandwich Is lands? Shall these "five ports" be bung holes thro' which we Christians, Americans, shall pour rum into these islands, hitherto beautiful and prosperous in their elected isolation? a r.runiiTER VIEW. But the eye of faith is surely allowed to rest on brighter prospects. An Anglo Saxon, and a Pro testant power, dividing the commerce of the earth, nnd side by side with her sister in the superiority of her national institutions, makes a treaty with a great long-sealed empire. "China is opened;" and Japan loo is opened. Pernicious influences will be first exerted; hut so it is in nature, where the first rains or the vernal revival rush in torrents from the mountains and devastate the plains below. Those which come later cover the ground with ver dure and bloom. The opium of China that has ruined its thousands, no doubt has been allowed, like the war for its sake, or like famines and pes tilences, to prepare the long lain fallow soil for the seed. So may some kindred curse fall upon Japan. "Woe unto the world because of oflenees! for it must needs lie that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!" Here too, says the apparently best informed correspondent, as in China, "five ports" are opened. The hitter treaty seems formed much after the model of the former. So, we trust, we hope, we ardently long, we fervently pray, may the same amazing result soon follow. May some Japanese Taiptug Wang go forth to shatter the national idols, to distribute the Scriptures under the Impetial seal, to preach the glad tidings of salvation through Jesus Christ. Then from ' the rising of the sun" (which is the meaning of the name Japan) to this sundown hind of gold shall the Lord's name be great. It appears that on the occasion of the burial of a marine, a large tiumber of Japanese were present and heard with curiosity and respect the reading of the Episcopalian funeral service. They are said to have exhibited surprise at the filing of three volleys by the escort; from which tbey no duubt concluded that the Budhist and Christian notions, in regard to the potency of firc-crackcra aud match locks in expelling evil spirits from graves and the bodies of the dead are very similar. This funeral offered the oppprtuity for some notice of the care w ith which the instructions of our government had assured them of non-interferciiM with their reli gion; which point they, had already, they said, "ob served with pleasure," adding that they quite un derstood the difference betweeii Protestants and IJoman Catholics-" Indeed, itwould lie wonderful if, with their acquaintance with Chitia, they Iiad not remarked it. From the year 159C, when queen Elizabeth, granted letters of recommendation to the Emperor Shintsung, in favor of Richard Adams and Thomas Bromfield, citizens of London, and merchants, until the year 184S, there never was an English, American, Dutch, Swedish, or any. other Protestant Christian house of worship erected on Chinese soil. Through nearly all these long cen-. turies the weight of Protestant influecc, centering in the English East India Company, was hostile to any missionary effort; which they feared might dis turb their commercial intercourse. Alas! alas! if such be "the difference" which has given the Japan ese pleasure to observe. No mention is made of any other conversation upon our religion, either incidental or in connection with the official inter course of our officers with the Japanese. Yet it is to be hoped that opportunities offered and were embraced for setting them right as to tbe purity, benevolence, inoffeii3ivcness, and eternal importance of those heavenly doctriue3 which He preached, whose cross they have so long been accustomed to trample contemptuously upon. We are comforted tooliserte from the last accounts, that the pious and learned editor of the Chinese Repository, S. Wells Williams, T,L. D., (another of the volumes on China entitled, "The Middle Kingdom"), ac companied the expedition as Interpreter. It seems a striking providence that the only American who has any knowledge of the Japanese language should have been sent with onr fleet; and that he should have leen so qualified for the duty, years before, by having had Japanese, who had been shipwreck ed and brought into Macao by foreign vessels; em ployed in liis family. By the assistance of these men he,translated portions of the New Testament into their tongue; copies of which with the Japan ese translations of pntzlafftwe may hope will have lifted their wings and been dispatched to carry glad tidings, ami to shed healing, amid many a cliff- NASHVILLE, TENN: SUNDAY; hung hamlet, and in many a watered valt iathaT land which enjoys so many blessings, bnt"wants.thb' greatest. FORMER P.ELIGI0L'S EFFORTS IX JArAN" There is much to inspire the Christian .world rwlth ardor in the prospect of sending the Gospel to. Japan. Ibis was the field of Francis, Aavier's: no blest conquests, and warmest hopes. The Apostle of . Jesuitism landed bn it3 shores in the middle of August, 1549. The facile inhabitants yielded in crowds to ht3 arguments, and became Christians so far 03 cold, water and baptismal, formulas could make them so. In two. months he renorted five hundred persons, mostly of rank and station, as having forsaken heathenism; no doubt some of them with some conception of the change. "Though my hair begins already to be hoary (he wrote, I am more vigorous and robust than ever I was; foi the pains which arc taken to cultivate a-reasonable nation, which loves the truth, and which covets to be saved, arc health to the soul, and to the frame. I have not, in the course of my life, recei veil' a greater satisfaction than at Amanguchi, where I saw the pride of their bonzas overthrown, and be held the transports of joy in thesii new Christians, who, after having vanquished their prefsts in dis pute, returned in triumph." The latest important act of Xavier's life, in 15.12; was to send to Japatiiiis disciples Alcaceva, Bal thazar, aud dc Silva. ' ltomanism spread with such rapidity that in about thirty years, Valigtiani from that time claimed a hundred nnd fifty thousand Christians, two lmudrctl churches, and fifty-nine religious houses of his order. One of the most interesting events in the eccle siastical history of the East, was the embassy of three princes, sent by the kiugs of Bungo, Otiitira and Arima, lo pay their respects to Pope Gregory XIII., in 1582. These, with two other nobles, reached Lisbon in 1581, Their journey thenw to Home was a continued ovation, iu whose joy ail papal Europe sympathized. A thousand Roman gentlemen, with a vast 'multitude beside, cicortt.il them into the city.

"With hands raised toward heaven, and senti ments of profound admiration, I adore the most holy Pope, who holds the place of God On earth and humbly present him this letter. "I take great liberty, holy father! in writing to you, but I do so with confidence, assisted by tl.c King of heaven, although my style is rude and un polished. Since I know that you hold on earth the place of God himself, and that all Christians receive from your holiness those salutary lessons which are necessarjilo regulate faith and conduit. it was my desire to cross the ocean iu order to ren der my homage in person, to put the sacred feet on my head, after having respectfully kissed thein; but I am unhappily deprived of thi3 pleasure by important affairs which will not allow me to leave my estates. It is not long since the father-visitor of the Jesuits came iuto these kingdoms of Japan, and now having regulated all things for the good of this church, he returns towards you. I have thought this a favorable occasion, and have i-ent with him Michel de Cingira, my nephew, who is ordered to render in my name thesubmission which is my duty. A commission of thi3 importance is much beyond his age and strength, but I hope you will do me the favor, most holy father, to receive him indulgently, and permit him to kiss the feet for me. and for himself. I desire also, moat earnestly, lhat.yonr holiness would remember me and this lit tle portion of the flock which the great Shepherd has entrusted to you. The visitor and my ambas sador will inform your holiness of all that concerns my estates and person. I close with offering to you my adorations with fear and respect.

The letter of Barthelemi ha3 been selected be cause he was the first Japanese prince who receiv ed Christian baptism; he was one distinguished by his genius, hi3 courage, and his fidelity to his pro fession; and at his death, which occurred soon af ter, at a good age, he solemnly exhorted his heir, Sanchez, to "advise with the fathers of the Society iu all his concerns," aud to "procure rest for his soul by alms, prayers, and the sacrifices of the church." It was but three years from the time of Ihe tri umphs at Rome, aud licfonj the three ambassadors had yet reached home, that the tide turned.

" AUGUST 13, 1854- The Morals of Fishing. Some one ha3 written to Henry "Ward Beecher to Know iii3 opinion -of the morality ot fishing.- lue conclusion of Ins reply is so beautiful that we forget the treason of the writer in admiration of his pictures. Mr. Beecher says : " But, aside from tho pleasure which arises in connection with seeking or taking one's prey, we suspect that the collateral enjoyments amount of ten, to a greater sura than all the rest. The early rising, the freshness of those morning hours pro ceeding the sun, which few anti-piscatory critics know anything about ; that wonderous early morn ing singing of birds, compared to which all after day jsongs are mere ejaculations; for such a the tumult and superabundance of sweet noise after four o'clock in summer, that one would think that if every dew-drop were a musical note, and that thebird3 had drank thorn all, they could not have been more multitudinous or delicious. Then, there is that incomparable sense of freedom which one has. in remote fields, in forests, and along the streams. His heart, trained in life to play with jets, like' an artificial fountain, seems, as he wanders along the streams, to resume its own liberty, and like a meadow-brook-, to -wind and turn, amid flowera and fringing shrubs, at its own unmolested pleasure. Care and trouble in ordinary life, and especially iu cities, disturb the fountains of feeling, as rub bish fallen into the fountain of ruined cities in the cast, chokes them, or splits and scatters their streams through all secret channels. One who believes God to have made tho world, and to Iutc expressed his own tastes and thoughts in the making, cannot express what feelings those arc which speak music through his heart. A little plant growing iu silent simplicity in some covert spot, or lookingdown upon him from out of a rift, some rock uplifted high above his reach or climb- rug what has it said toliim, that he stops and tr-fTfi ,i if ltd C'lU' mnen ifini in.la.tnl fnmnS What is that rush of feeling in his heart, and that strangoopening up of thoughts, as if a revelation had been inadt: to him ? Who that ha3 a literal eye, could see anything but a solitary flower cast ing a litiear shadow ou the side of the gray rock ; a shadow that loves to quiver, and nod, and dance, lo every step which the wind blown flower takes? But thi$ floral preacher up in that pulpit has preached tears into my eyes, and told me more than I was ever able to tell again. Indeed, iu many aud many a tramp, the best sporting was done on my back. Flat under a tree wo lay, a vast Brobdiguag, upon whom grasshop pers mounted, and glossy crickets crept, harmless, with evident speculation of what such a phenome non could portend. Along the streams creep as piring ants searching with fierv zeal for no one can even tell what. The blue jay is in the tree above you. The woodpecker screws round and round the trunk, hammering at every place like an auscult doctor sounding a patient's lungs. "Little birds fly in and out gibbering to each other in 3weeb little detatched sentences,, confidentially talking over their famly secrct3, nnd expressing those delicate sentiments which one never speaks above a whisper, in twilight. When you rise, the birds flutter and fly. and c!oud3 of insects fly off from you like sparks from a fire when a log rolls over. I'he brook that gurgled past the tree, feeding Its roots, and taking its pay in summer shadows, varied eve ry hour, receives a portion of out jumping fry. Far off their coming shines. For before it had even touched the water, that bold trout sprung sparkling from the surface and sunk as soon, leav ing only a few bubbles to float dowu. There ! if that trout ha3 a right to his grasshopper, have I not a right to the trout ? I'll have him! After several throws, I find that it takes two to make a bargain. At length one must go home. I never turn from the silence of the underbrush, or the solitude of the fields, or the rustlings of the forest, without a certain sadness as if I were going away from friends. But to return to our correspondent : will be be pleased to say to all disputants who quote our ex ample, that we nrr fish except with a remote culinary inspiration ; that we never catch more than will supply the reasonable wants of the family, and that too often, unfortunately, we stop short of that. Inform them, if you please, that our skill in fishing is principally displayed upon paper ; and that our excursions usually turn out to be a little fishing, a good deal of waudering dreamily about, yet more of lying under trees, or of being perched up in some notch of a rock, or lying on the edge of ravines and trumpeting water falls. And, final ly, that we are guiltles3 of shooting, aud seldom feel an impulse to explode ponder, except when we see respectable city stupidities killing singing birds. We sometimes feel an inclination then, to fchoot the unmannerly fowler. No gentleman would shoot a singing bird. And lastly, if our cor respondent's friends Kill, in spite of his excellent discussions, still go a fishing, our only wish is that after two seasons of fishing they may do what we have not, catch so many fish as would, if sold at a fair price, pay the expense of their tac-'de." Pres. U'itiiM. From the American Messenger. - Paul's Preeminence and the- secret of it. " I labowl more abuudautly than they all." This was h'i3 preeminence. This he regarded as among the greatest " signs of an apostle." And well he might; for even his Master and Exemplar said, " My Father worketh hitherto, and I work." " I must work the works of him that sent me .while it is day. The night cometh, when no man can work." Must Christ work, who created all things, John 1, and " upholdeth all things by the word of his power," Heb. 2, and who by that sim ple iron expelled diseases aud demons, and raised the dead ; and must not we ? " Work," therefore, " abundant labor," stands high among the "signs of an apostle," and not only so, but among the " signs of a Christian ;" for our highest distinction und purest glory, as well as our clearest evidence of Christian character, lies in our resemblance to Christ. We follow a working Redeemer, and we must be working disciples. The more " abundant ly" any man "labors," if he "works the work of the Father,', tlie more nearly and manifestly does he resemble Christ, whose " image" it is the glori ous dignity of the child of God to be " conform ed.'' 1 torn. 8. What then was the secret or Paul's preeminence? "llowbeit, not I but the grace of God which tens icith me." This reveals the whole secret of that wonderous activity which, " from Jerusalem round about unto Illyricum, fully preached the gospel of Christ.'' If Paul wa3 cmiueut, it was "grace" that made him so. And that grace is just as free to you, aud to .me. " He giveth more grace." Let us then 'come. boldly to a throne of grace, that we may find grace to help us," aud then pour out that grace iu "abuudaut labors" for God and the souls of men- Is not this the. sweetest life on earth, aud the surest path to heaven.?

There are may prejudices which hang like a d'ad weight upon the progress of so ciety, or of the individual who cherishes them, which are no better founded than the one so ef ctually removed bythe parson. Prejudices founded on religious or conscien tious scruples are among the most inveterate and not unfrequentfy among lhe most unreasonable. Sachare the prejudices, formerly exfsting and not yet by any means entirely extinct chiefly among the descendants 0f lhe Puritans, and the early Reformers, respecting the use of instru mental music, and its introduction, into the sanc tuary. Sometimes they extend only to instru ments of a certain character; wind instruments, such as tho flute, &c, are tolerated, while al5 such as owe- their efficacy to cat-gut and hair are ban ished from the church, and their use deemed scarce ly reputable in the family circle. There is a hamlet no matter where inhabi ted mainly by the descendants of the Scottish Covenanters, who have inherited from their fathr rrs not only their sturdy, unbending integrity and whole-9ouled piety, but all their bitter hostility to- "the sinful practice" of the men who Wield the fiddle bow." A young minister had come 'to settle among them. With a smile ever upon his countenance and a' kind word for everybody, while zeal for his Master's work shone out in every action, he soon drew around hint the sympathies and the love of his humble parishioners. But ere long he per ceived a change; friendly greetings were coldly returned; mysterious hinUof the awful guilt of ministerial backsliding occasionally reached hist ears; knots of men were seen gathered at the corners of the streets, engaged in earnest con versation, indicating by their looks and gestures that the occupant of the humble parsnnagerthat stood full in view, supplie 1 the theme. A vague rumor had bepjun to float, through the1 hamlet, deeply affecting, in lhe estimation of thef stern old Scotchmen, th".' moral character of their minister. It was heard with increduliry, and in dignantly repelled; but it gathered .-ire gih; doubt succeeded to confidence, until the most stubborn incredulity could resist no longer; the most un-i mistakable sounds of "tortured cit-gut," pro ceeding from the parsonage itself, reached the ears of that knot of men, and the awful fact stood revealed, that their minister "played the fiddle." Such an enormity could not be tolerated. The elders of the church came together in secret con clave, to consult upon the course to be pursued in such an emergency, and as the consummation of their deliberations, a committee was appointed to wait forthwith upon lhe minister at his home, "and deal wi him in a faithfulness,'' and bring back a report of their mission to the reraaing eld ers, who would, in the meantime, anxiously await their return. During all this time the pastor himself had not leen an unconcerned observer of what was going on among his people; neither was he ignorant of ils cause. Conscious, however, of rectitude, he- did not think that duty required of him the sacrifice of an exquisite and holy gratification, to satisfy un reasonable prejudices that he believed would le re moved by a judicious course. From the window of his study he saw the committee of elders ap proaching with unwilling steps; and immediately conjecturing the object of their visit, he determin at once to meet the question in a way that they lit tie expected. Meeting them with his usual cordial ity, he ushered them into hU snag study, aud with out giving them an opportunity to enter upon the subject of their mission, he commenced an anima ted conversation upon a subject that immediately arrested their attention. Music was his theme. He spoke of it as an aid to devotion of its power to subdue the soul to elevate it above the earth to bring it into almost immediate communication with it.? Creator. He described the venerable Psalmist of Israel pouring forth with the enthusiasm of inspiration tho- glo rious songs of Zion, that ever since have been the comfort and delight of the people of God, end sweeping with trembling hand the strings of his harp, until the Fwellingr sound was echoed back from thesurroundinghili-tops. Carriedaway with the ardor of his own feelings, he rose from hb scat, and taking from a case thatjtood in one corner of. the room a well-worn violineello, he sang to its ac companiment one of those immortal chorals, so dear to every Christian heart, and especially to every Scotchman. Possessing a rich, full voice, and no little skill in the management of his favorite instru ment he poured out such a flood of harmony as had seldom greeted the ears of hi5 spcll-boum! listeners. The stern old men were conquered, conquered by the very weapon that thpy had come to condemn. As the pastor returned the instrument to its accus tomed place, the elders arose and grouped his hand, and, without alluding to the object of their visit they bade him "good-bye." Meanwhile, a? time wore away, the remaining ciders, who were anxiously awaiting the retnrn Of their committee, somewhat doubtful, perhaps, of the result became impatient of their protracted delay drawing no very favorable augury there from. At length they entered and resumed their places in the august circle. Somewhat embarrass ed at the novelty of their position as convoys who had failed even to speak of that for which they had been sent, they sat for a time in silence, until one more impatient than the rest exclaimed; '"Hue ye dealt wi' the minister, and hae ye destroyed the deil's weapon?" -"Ilontawu, mon.Hi'yoiirdealiu'.'' indignantly replied one of the committifj -it's nane o' yonr woe bit sinful dancin' fiddle, but it"- a great big fiddle, wi a havenly croak." 11.

A playmate tells her what it represents explains what prayer isglvc her some crude idea of God. and her mind; is at once aroused.

True had a hnmble, loving heirf, and child-like faith ; he had enjoyed bat little relHW instruction, but he earnestly endeavored to live un to the light he had. Perhaps, in hu, faithful pr -t.cc of the Christian virtues, and especially b l obedience to the great law of Christian c he more nearly approached to the snirit r f,:.

He answered her a, well as he could, however, and. where he was a' fault, hesitated not to refer her to Willie, who, h told her. went to Sunday School, and knew a won -derail sight abont such things. All the inform tion that Gerty cotild gain amounted to the knowl edge of these facts : that God was iu heaven ; tbu his power was great; and that people were maul better by prayer. Her little eager brain wa a mteut upon the subject, however, that, aiilt grew late, the thought even of sleeping in her new room co.ild not efface: it from her mind.

Many a petition did Gerty offer up in after veart In many a time of trouble did she come to God for help ; m many an hour of bitter sorrow did she from the Same source seek comfort ; and, when her strength and heart failed, God became the strength of her heart.
