The conlPiHiona of sects arc about points which the .'root mass of men do not regard as important, -points which are made conspicuous in thology, not from any intrinsic importance, but from happening to be the ones forced up aloft .. nf controversy. IMC UIS- agreement ol sects seems only the surface of Christendom; the harmony and union are wide and deep b"hw.

A..M.I..T is by nature n Calvan.st ; the jargon of the schools furnishes the 0,,en Sesame, winch unlock- the e..irnnee-way to his heart; and the stern severity, which the Confession ofFaith ascribes to the gov eminent of God, finds an echo in his feel ing.. Another is relying and affectionate. A 'debt in religion torture him. He wauls Mune certain rule of fniih. He needs some visible nu'lioriiy on which to lean." 'Ii is often remarked that a man. what ever his previous opinion? may have been, always connects himself with that sect by ..".. n.mi.irv he has uecm 'enverlrd.' The reason is obvious. In that sect, truth was first presented to him in a form Hint cmmM find ncce- lo his religion nature. 'l": same trii'hs that have at lust ennver him. nufflit have been sounded into his .rnrsfl thousand time before ; but. b"cau-e they p'niie lo him in forms un-uited to bis mom.il constitution and bnbiis. they were lifclpss.

A union is in progress, silently, almost unobserved, going on while men have slppl, yet rapidly, the only true and desirable union between Christians. a union, not of heads, hut of hearts, not of intellects, but of consciences, a union of moral sympathies and cndu, and not of intellectual speculations.

"If these remarks be true, in order that there tmiv be union amnnz Chriidani in character, there must be different sfu's: that is, in order that the religious princi ple maybe equally developed, divine truth must be pro-enled lo ddl'-reei men, in forms as various as arc their menial enn- etitutions and habits. Wo ought, there foro. not to wish that all sects should think Ihe tame thoughts, and have the same forms and the same tongue. Such unity as this could be brought about only by cs tinfishiii" all thought and all interest in rMicrmn. Where there is but one church there is eooo no religion. Whore ihe Church of Rome has been most successful in shutting out heresy, sho has been also most successful in dwarfing and blighliiig tlm rolifr'tous nature of man. Wc ought not to mourn that there arc so many dif ferent sects, but rather to give find thanks, that, through their instrumentality, all men arc nb'.c to receive divine truths informs fitted to penetrate through their intellects into their hearts. "And how should this diversity of sects, arising from constitutional and educational differences, affect the harmony of Chris, tian6? In no way, except to promote it. The true bond of union between Christians is likeness and sympathy of character, the possession of like affections, and Ihe being governed by like principles of action. The unity Fliould bo, not in ihe intellectual Fpcculalious. in the creed, but in the spirit Such union a diversity of sects, by giving power nnd a wider field of action to Chris tian influences should produce. 'But there is another power at work,- till lately unknown, which is doing moro than oil things else, to discnvor and strong tbnn the bonds of Christian union ; n is the principle of Benevolent Association This, and not the lovo of money, or educa tion, is the true spirit of the age; that which distinguishes our limes from all preceding limes. It is working wonders in levelling the hills, nnd filling up the val leys, and making the paths straight, which Beparato seciB.

The sketches which follow are rxtractod from a very lively nnd piquant article in that very clever monthly,- 7'(e Southern Literary Messenger. We recommend them to the perusal of our readers for they are among tiio most spirited sketches that have recently fallen under our observation, i.oni) .iiui.nnunM:, Let us slop before tins person in a gray hat nnd dark brown riding-coat, carelessly supporiini' himself on his cane.

Nevertheless this person js Lord Melbourne, the leader of Ihe governii'Ctit. But examine, a little closer and imi'ii pi tentively ibis physiognomy; the expression of it is complex; it is n mixture of pride, indolence, and irritability. In this you have the whole secret of the talent nnd the fortune of this minister. It is almost n miracle that Ins miiurnl indolence should have allowed him ihu nmtnlion to aspire to the first office of the slate; at least, 1 do not believe that lie would luivo had the en ergv lo have maintained himself Inn"- in hat p'l.-iiion, if it had noi oeon disputed.

At ibis moment ho exhibit the t rembling nnd mag nuicenily impassioned air of (jusimir re rier. Lord Melbourne is the most origina speaker, and the most peculiar in eillior house o parliament ; perhaps the most im passioned, if not the greatest nnd the mos perfect.

Din excess of pedantry is the principal lef'ect in the oratory ol Lord Brougham.- lie has been well called Ihe school master. 1 do not deny his extraordinary gifts as learned debater, always caustic nnd ind- fatifable; but these extravagant di-cours- s are out of all nrono'tion. above all in IIoiibp of Lord-, winch treats nil questions in a summary way. and in some ogreo ter i be fashion of tlm drawing-room.

Another oralor followed, whose name we could not learn. Among other lan guage he used the following; "Fellow citizen Eli Hart has now in Ins store fifty-threo thou sand barrels of floor. Let us go down peace ably and ask him to let us liavo il at $10, if he. 'don't we'll (after a long pauso) go peacea bly an ay." This speech was trenienduosly cheered, am! several oralors followed. In one of tlie intervals-, Alexander Ming.

At the close of the speechifying, some of the mn.t zealous in attendence, lifted Mr. Ming on Iheir sholnders and carried him to taminnny Hall. The mee. ting consisted chielly of foreigners, many of whom could not speak English. Ceruinlv not one third wern Amcrcun citizens, and those chiitly aprareutly attracted thereby curiosity.
