We would respectfully suggest to the enlarged and pious winds of those, who direct the great work of missionary charity, that at this mo. ment, the ca ase of the Gre. cian charch, can in no way be so effectually served, as by contributions directed to the field of the great stroggle. The war is empbatically a war of the crescent against the cross.

The ve nerable partiarch of the Greek faith, torp from bis

altar and hanged af en portals of his charck; gave the signal of the anholy outrages which were to waste his flock. And now wherever the armies of the Sultan prevail, the village churches are levelled with the dust or pollated wit the abominations of ahonjetaoism, aad the religious houses of the Greeks, the oldest abodes of christiani ty in the world, are wasted with fire, and the sacred volame thrown out to be trampled under foot by bara harians. At this crisis the messenger of the gospel fraternity should come id other guise tban the distris boter of the word ; and could the broad and deep current of religious bounty be turned into a channel to reach the seat of the prio: cipal distress, it is not god ing too far to say, that it might be the means of givx ing another independent country to the church of Christ; and do more to effeot the banishment of the crescent to the deserts of Tartary, than all that has yet been achieved by the counsels of christendom.".

· POETRY.
"The Devotion of Nature.'
[From Moore's Sacred Melodies.]
The tarf shall be my fragrant sbrine ;
My temple, Lord, tbat arch of thine ;
My coqsor'a breath the mountain airs,
And sileni ihoughts my only prayers.
My choir shall be the moonlight waves,
When murm’ring homeward to their cavés,
Or when the stillness of the sea,
E'en more tban music, breathes of Thee!
I'll seek by day some glade opkoo wo i ri
All light and silence, like thy Throne
And the pale stars shall be at night,
The only eyes that watch my rite, 2
Thy Hear'o, 'op which'tis bliss to look,
Shall be my pare and sbiniog book ;
Where I shall read in words of flame,

The glories of thy wondrous name.
I'll read thy'ang'er in the rack
That clouds a while the day-beams' traok ;
Thy mercy in the azure boe
Of sundy brightness, breaking through!
There's nothing bright, above, below,
From flow'rs that bloom to stațs that glow,, :
But in its light my soul oan see,
Some feature of tby Deity!
There's nothing dark, below, above,
Bat in its gloom I trace thy Loro,
And meekly wait that moment, wher
Thy touch shall toro all bright again." L 1:36 38

Pii orant taciti.
