The attention of most persons appears to be directed to one point, that of as certaining haw far any portion ef the crop can be saved.

CIRCULAR. Dear Brethren Wc propose lo ad dress you at this time on the duties ol Church Members. Volumns have beer, written on this subject, and it will no be supposed that within the limits of this short essay, we can do more thai, give some general outlines of this im portant subject. A Church Member ii; or at lea..' should be, one who has by the light of grace, shining in the gospel, been made to sec his lost condition, and the Sinfulness of bis own heart, has re pented for bis sin, and believed on the saviour, and lias through the door of baptism, entered into the visible church. In-forming this alliance, we pledge ourselves to God, and to one another that the energies of our souls shall be devoted to his service, lo the advance ment of the Redeemer s Kmgdon on earth, and to the aiding one auother in our march to gain the chUrcH" triumph ant. . Having taken upon ourselves tlie christian name, we are required td let our light so shine before men ihat oth ers seeing, our good works shall be constrained to give glory to God. We are required to adorn our profession by an orderly .walk; and Godly conversa tion. So be not conformed to this world; but be transformed by the renewing of our minis, lhat we may prove what is "that good, and aceeplablc, and perfect will of God- Ojt deportment should be such as will call forth lho expres sion, these have been with Jesus. It is the duty of Church Members, not only lo read the Bible, but to love and obey its precepts: to commune w t i with God in the closet, and in family and social circles." We .shall, however confine our re marks mainly, to these duties termed relative duties. First we will consider the duty of Church Members toward3 their ministers. It is too common in our day for ihe labors of the Ministry to be lightly esteemed; in fact,-if wo may judge by the 'conduct of a lavge'
