gations to "come up to the help of the Lord, to the help of the Lord against the mighty.” Their language is the time to build the Lord house is not yet come.”

Errors in sentiment and practice yet prevail in too great a degree, and loudly call for the earnest prayers and steady vigilence of the people of God for their suppression. But notwithstanding these lamentable facts we feel constrained to say-ubat hath God wrought:

The number of our church and of their members has been increased the zeal of christians has in some instances been invigorated. Interesting revivals of religion have occured in many of our churches, and we have enjoyed delightful seasons of refreshing from the presence of the MOST HIGH.

In conclusion, the Synod would say to its members and the churches under their care, brethren persevere” in the work whereunto you are called, forasmuch as ye know that your Jabour shall not be vain in the Lord, be fervent in spirit, united in sentiment, and as the heart of one man, be engaged in efforts to advance the interests of the Redeemer's kingdom, Let the discipline of the church be strictly observed, even if it should cause the casting off of some of its members. Unworthy members are but a reproach to the house of God. Let family government be kind and parental, but firmi and decided; restrain your households from all those plans of vain amusements which only feed the depravity of the heart and separate your offspring farther from God. Let every benevolent object be encouraged by your prayers and your alms. In fine, do all thiugs as becometh saints. Be wise as serpents and harmless as doves in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world.

HUGH BARR, Stated Clerk. Nashville, 8th Oct. 1827. .

ERRATA. Page 274, line 16, from the bottoni: “Those who come at the call of God, he is represented here as giving to Christ. That is, they first come and are then given.' Page 274, line 7, from the bottom: “Those who come at the call of God, he is represented as giving to Christ. That is none are given but those who come.” In both places the two sentences have been incorrectly quoted as the words of Doctor Clarke; but the marks of quotatiop in each place, should stand at the end of the first, instead of the second sentence, thus: “Those who come at the call of God, he is repres sented here as giving to Christ.” The second sentence is merely explanatory in both cases, and not the words of Doctor Clarke.

Page 275, line 5, from the bottom, beginning at the word Seldom and continuing to the end of the paragraph, is the language of Doctor Dwight, and should have been acknowledged by marks of quotation.
