RE is-'id for publishing, by subscription, a
periodical work, to be entitled ' Sc !;-e!io ns
from the Itecor di of the United Ifrt thrcu's Church,1
commonly called Jhvavian Church. Since the
commencement of the year 1819, a periodical
work, authorised by the German Synod of the
United Brethren's Church, has been published
in Germany, comprising biography, missionary
intelligence, and other interesting matter, se
lected from manuscript accounts, together with
occasional gleanings from the early history oi
that church. It is now proposed to translate into
the English language, and to publish in this
country, under the auspices of the Conference
for Pennsylvania and the adjacent states, a select
portion of the aforesaid w ork, under the above
title ; and to insert, occasionally, such other
recent and interesting matter as may come to
hand, in manuscript accounts or private letters,
relative to the United Brethren's Church and
Missions, particularly in this country.
The members and friends of our little Zion,
and those who are interested in the general
cause of the Gospel, are affectionately solicited
to aid the undertaking by their patronage.
The work is to appear in quarterly numbers
of 48 pages, makjng a volume of four numbers
every year ; the annual subscription to be one
dollar, payable on the delivery of the first num
ber; and the publication to commence as soon
as a sufficient number of subscribers has been
obtained to justify the undertaking.
Subscriptions will be thankfully received by
the UcvM. Jacob Van VJeck, at Salem, Stokes
county, N. C. and also by the United Brethren's
ministers throughout the United States.

Tiie following is extracted from the Notes to
Simpson's Plea for Religion :
" When I have spoken above in such
strong terms of the volume of Revela
tion, it is by no means intended to cast
any slight upon the volume of Nature.
While we daily study the former, we
shall do well to pay all due attention to
the latter, according to our opportuni
ties oi investigation. 1 o an enlight
ened observer, they both carry indubi
table marks cf their great Original.
"The Heavens declare the glory of
God, and the earth is full of his rich
es." The most perfect catalogue of
stars before Herschel appeared, did
not contain quite 4000 ; but by the vast
superiority cf his glasses, he has dis
covered 44,000 stars in a few degrees
of the heavens ; and by the same pro
portion it is supposed that 75,000,000
are exposed in the expanse to human
investigation. Lalande sunnoses that
a glass of Herschel's power may dis
cover 90,000,000 of stars in the whole
surface of the Heavens, and that even
this number is but small, in compari
son of what exists. All these stars
are of a fiery nature, and conjectured
to be so many sit72sy with their systems
of planets moving round them. We
know the sun to be the centre of our
system. It is accompanied with 29
planets, besides about 450 comets.
What an amazing idea does this give
us of the works of God ! And if such
be the Work, what must the Workman
Every part of nature, with which
we are acquainted, is full of living
creatures, with stores of every kind to
supply their necessities. This little
globe of ours is known to contain with
in its bowels a great variety of valua
ble minerals, and to be covered with
about SO.OCO different species of veg
etables, 3000 species of worms, 12,000
species of insects, 200 species of am
phibious animals, 550 species of birds,
2600 species of lish, and 200 species
of quadrupeds. How immense, then,
must be the number of individuals !
One fly is found to bring forth 2000 at
a time, and a single codfish to produce
considerably more than 3,500,000 of
young. Over all these creatures pre
side upwards of seven hundred and
thirty millions of human beings. Such
is the family of the great Father here
on earth ! And when it is considered
that the earth itself, with all its furni
ture, is no more, when compared with
the whole system of things, than a sin
gle grain of sand, when compared with
a huge mountain, we are lost in the im
mensity of God's works, and constrain
ed to cry out, " Lord, what is man,
that thou art mindful of him, or the
son of man that thou visitest him !"
And if to this immensity of the works
of creation, we add the admirable
structure of the whole, and the exqui
site perfection of every part, we shall
not fail of being exceedingly affected
with the ineffable wisdom of the Divine
Architect. To bring this considera
tion more within the grasp of human
comprehension, let us take to pieces,
and examine the several parts of any
one creature which God has made ;
and we shall find a perfection among
its several powers, and an adaption of
its situation in the grand scale of ex
istence, far surpassing human skill.
Let the most perfect anatomist that
ever existed, make his observations
upon the human frame ; let him exam
ine with the greatest possible attention
the tout ensemble of the structure ; then
let him proceed to the several parts,
of which the microcosm is composed ;
first, the powers of the mind ; the un
derstanding, the will, the memory, the
conscience and the various affections :
next the five senses ; the touch, the
taste, the smell, the hearing, and the
sight ; afterwards let him proceed to
the several fluids of the body ; and
then to the 300 bones, the 40 different
sorts of glands, the 460 muscles, the
40 pair of nerves, the fibres, the mem
branes, the arteries, the veins, the lym
pha?ducts, the excretory vessels, the
tendons, the ligaments, the cartilages ;
and let him explore the whole and ev
ery part with the greatest degree of
accuracy, knowledge and judgment
V. . . J w o n ortrl th-rt
that ever centred in man ; and then
let him honestly say, whether he could
Isuersrest the smallest improvement in
any one respect. If he were an atheist
before such an investigation, like the
celebrated Galen, he would compose
an hymn in praise of the Creator of
the world,'and sing with the great pro
genitor of mankind :
' These are thy glorious w orks. Parent of good
Almighty, thine this universal frame,
Thus wondrous fair, thyself how wondrous then !
Unspeakable ! Who sittest above these heavens,
To us invisible, or dimlv seen
n these thv low est works ; vet these declare,
Thy goodness beyond thought, and power di
vine." H10M THE BOSTOX GAZETTE.
THE LATE 7)7?. DJVIGJTT.
The British periodical publications gen
erally, have for years exhibited such a
spirit of evenomed hostility towards us,
that nothing can be more gratifying than
to turn to their pages and find a faithful
as well as impartial representation of our
character. In the last number of the Ec
lectic Review, we observe an able analysis
of the late Dr. D wight's theological works,
which is characterized at the same time
by an unusual degree of candor and fair
ness. Perhaps no one of the long line oZ
American divines who have been gather
ed to the tombs of their fathers, will re
flect greater lustre upon the American
name, than Dr. Dwight. No matter what
were his peculiar tenets or doctrines, his
posterity will judge him rightly, and will
not fail to honor him. It will, nay, it has
alreadv, given him credit 44 for masterly
exposition of the doctrines of the Refor
mation ;" for his vast and extensive rea
soning powers ; for his wonderful research,
and application ; for his various litera
ture ; and for his classical and persuasive
eloquence. Dr. Dwight was at one pe
riod the head of the Calvinistic Church,
of New-England ; and his deportment ia
the pulpit was always of that comprom
ising nature, which secured the respect
and attention of those who differed fiom
him in sentiment. His reverential man
ner never failed to arrest the mind, nor
his high and exalted views and forcible il
lustrations, to have weight upon the heart
As a disputant he was universally pro
found ; but he never invited nor desired
disputation. ' He seemed to wind his way
insensibly into the inmost recesses of the
breast, by the inculcation of practical
moral truths, and virtuous precepts ; arid
he was never more happy than in delin
eating the beauties of Christianity, and in
describing the matchless purity and ex
cellence of the gospel. Hdd Dr. Dwight
lived, he would have continued to shine
with the splendor of a Feneloii, or a Dod
dii'ige ; but he has left behind him a
treasure in his works, which are the admi
ration not only of his own countrymen,
but of the land of his ancestors.
The following extract forms the com
mencement of the review in question,
and is sufficient to indicate a tone of sen
timent, in relation to American writers,
which we hope may be unceasingly per
" America has net of late years been
indebted to this country for any theologi
cal publication of greater v alue than thee
lectures of President Dwight. If that
jealousy of our transatlantic brethren,
which has too long manifested itself in
the supercilious tone of English writers
towards every thing American, were not
already subsiding, this work might seem
sufficient to give a check to the language
of disparagement, and to compel a more
respectful estimate of at least one branch
of its literature. But, unfortunately, that
one branch is the least likely to attain in
this country adequate attention, or to bo
fairly and impartially appreciated; the
American divines being too closely iden
tified, in the minds of a large class of
persons, with the English Calvinistic
Dissenters, lo stand a fair chance of hav
ing their claims to high consideration
generally recognized. A modern essay
ist critically ranks President Edwards a
mong English Dissenters, being ignorant
that the author of the acutest piece of
metaphysical reasoning in the language,
was an American. For any thing that
appears to the contrary, in respect to the
purity of his style and the extent of his
literary information, the author of these
volumes tao might pass for an English
man. And his masterly exposition and
defence of the doctrines of the Reforma
tion, might occasion his being referred to
that class of theologians, who, in this
country, are stigmatized as Calvinists or
Evangelical divines. The truth is, that
he was a man whom any religious denom
ination might be proud to claim one
whom every true christian, of whatever
country or language, might delight to re
cojrr.inc as a brother. Such men as the
! Laiimers and the Leightons and the Fen-
e'.ons, the Owens and the Henrys, the
Brainerds and the Martyns, the Doddrid
ges and Dwights, are the property of no
exclusive community ; they belong to the
Catholic Church. And one might be al
