Geneva, June 10, 1^29. 6m43 [PUBLISHED BY THE REQUEST OF A FRIEND.] ON THE RELIGIOUS SPIRIT OF THE AGE. A Spcecli delivered at the Anniversary at the Mis- sionary Society of the Reformed Dutch Chukh, inJune, 1829, 6ytAeREV.MR. S. A. VAN. VRAN- KEN, oft New-Jersey. We request the deliberate attention of the Min- isters, Elders, Deacons, and members ef the Re- formed Dutch Church to this speech. It ia given exactly as delivered. This eminent man seldom comes before the public. But weneed not tell the brethren, that when he does come out, it is on-no jjnimportant subject; nor in a manner unbecoming one whp is, with the church of his fathers, an uni- versal favorite.— Mag. of Dutch Ref. Ch. \ The operations of every religious institution are, more or less, influenced by the religious spir- it of the age. As a consequence of this connex- ion, it is quite natural that the attention should be called, off an ocasion like the present, to the char- acter and operations of that spirit. But I appre- hend that any thing in the shape of encomium would be altogether superfluous, not because en- comium is undeserved, but because such a vast u- monnt is bestowed. Each successive anniversary of the numerous societies of the day, forms a kind of pious gala, on which the powers of eloquence are put in requisition, to laud the spirit and the do- ings of the times ; and in the intervals, there are various methods, in which the age takes care to do justice to itself; and in which, by thuway, it e- vinces that self-complacency is seldom apt to fall in the rear of better feelings. \ But, whatever may be said in praise of the age, it must be confessed, that there is something that acts unpropitiously on the operations of our own institution. It will not do to affirm that the ener- gies of the Church are relaxed, or that the streams of her benevolence are dried up; and yet u mel- ancholy amount of our ruins lie, and many of our fields are parched and barren still. What, Sir, has been the result of all your appointments, ami all your concessions, and all your-arrangernents, to call up to the work a powerful section of tWChurch ! If it be aught, 1 know it net. And the failure is the more to be deplored, because the desolations are in sight, and the cry is at the door. The Church does comparatively little in support of her own missionary establishment. Shall we praise her for this ? We praise her no{. The amount of her con- tributions in aid of others has been generous. Do o- thers praise her for this 7 They praise her not. She seems doomed to reproach on every hand. But what else could she-expect, if while her sensibilities arc a- roused by every call that issues from the distant for- est, or floats across the main, she regards with so little emotion, the necessities of her own offspring ? We grudge not the amount that has been thrown into the general treasury. No, Sir. Would to God it were greater. Never let the destitute in- habitants of a continent, or an island, streteh forth their harids in vain; never let the cry for help from Macedonia, die unheeded on the ear. Let the remotest wanderer be welcome to participate in our harvests and our feasts. But we do complain, when the children's portion are the gleanings of the field, and the crumbs that fall from the table. \ This state of things has wrought perplexity in the minds of many worthy men of God. They have been at a loss to account for this strangft in- vasion of the natural order of the operations of the social and religious affections; and while they have proved themselves willing to contribute to every religious enterprise, they have been constrainod to abridge the expressions of their regard for those of a foreign character, in order to make up, in some measure, the deficiencies of others in the domes- tic department. If any of this class have been led to ascribe thB„existmg>statg of thinjp.to a spirit of alienation, it is not my intention to join with them here. It would be painful to refer our deficiences to a want of attaohment to the Church, and espe- cially so, when a far more general reason can be assigned- \ If I mistake not, this reason _is to be sought in the religious fashion. # f the times—in the mode of conducting a large portion of the religious ope- rations of the day. There is something highly imposing in the formation of plans, that are to tell upon the nations—that are to make an impres- sion upon both hemispheres at once. We natural- ly venerate these sublime conventions, which ma- ture these plans, and form the high resolves. Un- ion, the order of the day, falls with the power of a charm upon the soul. The affections are con- scious of an unwonted elevation ; they expatiate to the outward boundaries of the scene, and there they delight to range. Call them back, and you subject them to the pains of a retrogression, Con- fine them within the range of a strictly domestic enterprise, and the scene appears contracted, its objects comparatively mean, the employments which it commands, drivelling and insipid. In the marshalling of Jehovah's hosts, a scani|pattalion like our own is overlooked ; and, under the enchant- ments which distance and magnitude lend to their object\ the importance of filling up its ranks is not felt. Foreign recruits are regarded as forming the most, if not the only effective, force for the great battle of God Almighty. The view of the vast preparation dilates the soul, arouses the powers of eloquence) and whole ranks of orators stand pledg- ed, by the tenor of their own declamation, to spend their strength in a way, that promises (jut feeble assistance to such of their own kindred' as are ex- posed to the ravages of the foe. -, [To he Continued.] his liouse, or to carry it into his field, or to drink it on any occasion except as a medicine for dis- ease, I do not think one month could expire before- this man's name would be' found associated with him on the principle of ebtire abslinancc. ,But I fear these temperate neighbors will'not make Btacb a pledge, nor abstain 1 from occasional use of strong drink. Well, then, if they will Continue to set- such an example, (some of them are professors of religion, too,) my friend is lost—his wife is *or?e than widowed, and his childrSn doubly orphaned. But who, I ask, must answer for it in the great day of accounts?— Jour, of Hum.

W THE YOUNG HUSBAND AND FATHER IN DANGER. Mr. Editor —I have a friend who hos hitherto sustained the character of an aimable, moral, and usefnl citizen. He has a lovely wife and several promising children. He is now near the meridian of life, and by uncommon industry has acquired a comfortable estate for a country farmer. Bat I have strong apprehensions that he « becoming intemper- ate. I have fallen in with him twice, when to my great grief he appeared to have drunk too freely of ardent spirit. The first time, his tongue was quite thick and unwieldy; his words could with difficulty find a passage out. The next time, his organs of speech seemed remarkably flexible, and his words flowed much faster than usual: there was an unnatural oxcitement about the man, and in odour in his breath that argued dark things for the future. I thought 6f his iroiKible wife and love- ly children. I could have plead with him upon my knees to desist from the cup for these objects of his tenderest affection. But if Ilhadtvhispered the slightest suspicion of his intemperance in his ear, at that or at any other time, I should have been to him as one that mocked.

Extract of a letter from a lady who lately attended the annual examination of an infant school %n New-York. \ You cannot conceive how much a child is ca- pable of learning before he is three years old.— In the school were 150 scholars betvyeen the ages of eighteen month and seven ye'ars—most of them under six years,^and a large proportion tin- der four. The examination-took placelin a very large church, which was \crowded tb overflowing. The children were seated on long seats prepare4 for the purpose, on the stage in • front of the piti- pit. The teachers were all ladies. The direct- .ress of the school,-Mrs. Bethune, is a' daughter of the late 31rs. Isabella Graham. The children all seem to love her as a parent. The examiifa-. tion commenced by a hymn composed for the occasion, and sung by twenty of the smallest children. You will hardly conceive that chil- dren of that age can be taught to sing corre6i~ ly, but it is a. fact, that these litttle.^ creatures r not one over four, years old, s,ung' a'hyjKin hi the tune of Greenville, without discord, and kept as correct time as an experience'd choir of sing- ers. They then read: some of the smallest could only read letters printed on cards; but most of them could read in the Testament.— They all read together, and spake in so much n- nison, that it seemed like one \oice . The exer- cises were conducted with great regularity. After having attended closely for some minutes to a les- son, they were allowed to elap their hands and shuffle tlieir feet, for a minute's amusement; then all was silent. But it is vainfor me to attempt giving you many particulars. They were exam- ined in the rudiments of the Spelling-book, Eng- lish Grammar, Geography, Sacred History, and> the simple rules of Arithmetic ; and I hazard no- thing when I say, that they exhibited a more cor- rect knowledge of the principles of these branch- es, than two-thirds of the children in our common schools, from twelve to sixteen years of age.— This is the fact as far as I have been acquainted 1 in schools. Their answers were not given Ly rote: any stranger was-requested to ask questions in any of the branches. One gentleman, a stran- ger, took a slate and made a line of fourteen fig- ures, and held them up before the Behoof; they first told what the figures wejje, then enumerated them, (units, tens, &c.) then retnVthe amount as readily as you could do it. He then set sums in addi- tion, subtraction, multiplication and division. They would add, subtract, &c. and tell liim what figure to set down. The examination lasted three hours; yet the interest of children or spectators Was not for a moment lost. I am sure, if you had been there, you would have gone back to Vermont with the determination, at least to try to get an infant school in Windsor- I wish your little children could have seen the school, and the interest these little creatures expressed in their lessons.' Tell J. [about three years old} that a little boy no larg- er than he, stood in a chair and repeated a little hymn so that all in the house could hear, which began thus: \ See me\! I am a little boy, Who comes to Infant School; And though lam but few in year?./ I'll prove I am no fool ;• For I can say—twice 2 are 4, t And 6 is 2 times 3 *• Twice 4 ore 8, twice 5 are 10, As you will shortly see.\ &e. Apprentices' Libraries, Sfc.-^-lt is frequently men tioned,in evidence of the worth -of those excellent institutions, the Sabbath Schools, that scarcely an instance is known where thosewh»4ave received instruction in them, 6av& beeii' guUfy of erisae.— A writer in a New-York paper states, that of the multitude of Apprentices who Were readers in- the Apprentices' Library of that city since its fouada- dation in 1820, not one is known to teve been brought before the poliee of that eity even ©n,sus* picion. Whether these statements be aK true or not, it is evident that such efforts to enligliten -the rising generation must be powerful preventives of misery and crime.— Roch. Rep. Sabbath Schools. —Without the concurrence of parental influence, the Sabbath School teacher la- bors almost in vain. Libraries should be so managed, as that access to them should be the greatest privilege,' and to be deprived of it, the severest punishment. Any neighborhood or village that has had an-op- portunity of knowing.the value of Sunday Schools, and cannot snstainoneamongstthem> should think, seriously of reverting }o Paganism. The Onondaga County Bible Society met at Syracuse on the 8th, and unanimously resolved to raise f 4,000 in two years, to aid the Parent Institution, in sending the Bible to the 'destitute.
