American Congregational Year Book  for the Year 1856  Vol  3  Classic Reprint

Excerpt from American Congregational Year Book, for the Year 1856, Vol. 3 One department of the year-book which ought to be greatly enlarged has been in the present volume reluctantly but necessarily contracted, -the presentation of elevations of new churches, with a condensed history of their origin and present condition. To procure suitable engravings would add too much to the cost of the year-book, - but if individuals or churches will supply such views and histories, it would greatly increase the useful ness of the year-book to churches about to erect houses of worship and be a public benefit by improving our church architecture. Special attention is directed to the valuable extracts from the address of President Sturtevant, delivered at the annual meeting of the Union; and from Dr. Bacon's article in the New Englander on Presbyterianism. They are inserted because peculiarly appropriate to passing events. Although the year-book falls far short of the ideal which the Editor has of such a volume, he trusts the volumes which have been issued during his official connection with the Union will prepare the way in a more complete series to be prepared by his successors in office. He now te turns to the much loved duties of the Pastoral office, with the h0pe that the American Congregational Union will very greatly enlarge its opera tions, and be the means of uniting more closely the far spread churches of our land, and that the year-book will increasingly become the annual his tory of the churches, ministry; educational institutions and literature of the Congregational body.

American Congregational Year Book

Excerpt from American Congregational Year-Book: For the Year 1857 Gents z - It is now a year since the Plymouth Collection was introduced into use by the Clinton Avenue Congregation for the public worship of God on the Sabbath, and the occasional religious services held in the chapel during the week, and it affords me pleasure to say that it has not only met the expectations which led to its introduction, but that it has been growing in favor with the people, as they have become better acquainted with its peculiar excellences. In making my selections for the pulpit, I have been frequently im pressed with the fullness of the Collection on the main evangelical themes, and the high poetic beauty of a large class of the hymns. It is particularly rich in the expression it affords of christian emotion, covering a wide range of experience, and giving utterance to the deepest and most peculiar feelings of the christian heart. There is a large number of hymns, of the highest value for spiritual uses, to be found in no other collection and no minister or people, after learning their value, could be induced to resign them. The book has also sensibly promoted the practice of Congregational Singing, and so comprehensive is the collection, that, after all abatements are made, which any reasonable criticism could require, there remains enough to which the most fastidious taste cannot object. In a word, ounexperience for a year has served to make the Plymouth Collection a favorite in public and in private; and no one Wishes a change. It is also no small commendation, that the book is typographically so beautiful, and attractive to the eye.

Excerpt: ...while he was there, on a foundation he could not adopt, and though strongly urged to unite, and harshly condemned for his refusal, he maintained his position, unmoved by the censure heaped upon him. He graduated in 1817. After leaving college, Dr. C. taught school in Danvers, Ms., for a few months, and jcined the junior class in the Andover Theological Seminary, December 6, 1817. There he remained about two years, when his health failed, and he feared he should be obliged to give up his intention of entering the ministry. Under the advice of physicians, he left the seminary and went a journey, and finally became connected with Bowdoin College, as a tutor, in the years 1819-20. His health so far improved, that he accepted a call from the First Church and Society in North Yarmouth, and was ordained to the pastoral office February 14, 1821; successor to those men of God, mighty in the word and in prayer, the venerable Gilman, Brown, and Woodbury, and welcomed by the church, to whom they had ministered, as a man sent from God. " His brief pastoral life at North Yarmouth," says his successor, "was exceedingly and lastingly rich in its beneficial influence upon the people." It was brief indeed, for, after a few years, the same difficulty that occasioned the suspension of his studies at Andover, returned, and he was compelled to give up preaching. At the desire of his people, he retained his pastoral office until his suecessor's ordination, February 17, 1829, when he was released from his charge, with high testimonials to his ability and christian character, both from the church and the Ecclesiastical Council. Dr. C. became editor of the Christian Mz'rror August 18, 18.26, about four years after the commencement of...
