Author of “ Philosophy of Benevolence."
It is not profane, says Epicurus, to deny the gods of the vulgar, but it is profane
to apply the vulgar opinions to God.

PHARCELLUS CHURCH, in the Northern District of the State of New York.
J. S. & C ADAMS. Princ.
The Committee appointed to award the premium of two hundred dollars, offered for the best Tract or Treatise on Dissensions in the Churches, hereby certify that they have received and examined twenty-seven manuscripts, and among them a Treatise of several hundred pages. This last, they think has the precedence in merit; though it does not perhaps entirely meet the design of the offerer of the premium.
On the whole the Committee, without meaning to express entire concurrence in the views of the author of this manuscript, judge that he should receive the premium, and do accordingly award it to him.
Several of the remaining manuscripts are written with much ability and in an excellent spirit, and the Committee would be happy if they also could in some way be given to the public.
