Family Sewing Machine.

1. saver

Ke The unqualified preference given by the best judges to this machine for family use, and its unabated popularity, are the most convincing proofs of its superior

excellence. It is needless now to say, that this useful instrument is becoming a domestic institution; the fact is recognized by its successful use in thousands of families in every rank in life. To those who have hitherto refrained from availing themselves of its advantages, it may not be amiss to say, that its utility is not a problem to be solved, but a success already realized. The highest testimony is constantly offered, confirming the verdict which has given this instrument so wide and enviable a reputation.

This Machine is conceived on a principle ENTIRELY ORIGINAL, being specially and admirably adapted to the most perfect work on every kind of material ; and, having been subjected to a three years' test of the most searching character by families, and in various branches of manufacture, with distinguished success, it is believed that, in all the great points requisite to a complete and practical Sewing Machine, it cannot be approached in excellence.

Among the undoubted advantages it possesses over all others may be named the following: -1. Its simplicity of construction, and consequent freedom from derangement and need of repairs. -2. Its unexampled rapidity and ease of operation.-3. Its noiseless movement. — 4. The great variety of purposes to which it can be applied, which can be achieved by no other mechanical means. — And, 5. The pre-eminent BEAUTY and DURABILITY of the work. REFERENCES. – Rev. F. D. Huntington, D.D., Rev. Rufus Ellis, Rev. J. I. T. Coolidge, Rev. Edward E. Hale. o This Machine, in a variety of styles and sizes, is in operation and for sale at the Office and Wareroom, 228 Washington Street, corner of Summer Street, Boston.

man A Commentary on the Original Text of the Acts of the

Apostles, by HORATIO B. HACKETT, D.D., Professor of Biblical Literature and Interpretation in the Newton Theological Institution. A New, Revised, and Enlarged Edition. 17 This most important and very popular work has been thoroughly revised (some parts having been entirely rewritten) and considerably enlarged by the introduction of about a hundred pages of important new matter.

Francis Mason, D.D., a Missionary of the American Baptist Board, and Translator of the New Testament into the Karen language, says of this Commentary:-“From it I derived more advantage in the final revision of Acts than from all other Notes, Scholia, and Commentaries put together that I ever read. It omits nothing which the translator requires, adds nothing which is unnecessary, is full on difficult passages, and silent on plain ones."

6 Not having,” says the Apostle, “thine own righteousness which is of the Law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith.” The “righteousness which is of the Law” means, of course, the righteousness which was the result of obeying the Law, which came by Moses, the keeping of the commandments of God, as delivered through Moses. The good Jew received the commandment of God and obeyed it, just as an obedient child hears the command of his father and obeys it, simply because it is his command. This is precisely the same principle on which we of to-day obey the dictates of conscience, or the inner sense of right. We receive these dictates as the command or law of God, and obey them accordingly. We do not commit a dishonest action, because our conscience forbids, and God's word echoes its voice, “ Thou shalt not steal.” We do a kind deed because conscience prompts it, and God's word tells us to “ be kind one to another.” In both cases, though in different forms, obedience to God's command is the motive of the actor;, and this was precisely the motive of the rightVOL.
