POLITICS AND THE CLERGY. The Boston Recorder, one of the oldest fcnd best religious papers in the United States, is taking strong ground against ilergyraen leaving their pulpits to become legislators or politicians. Indeed, if ministers are determined to be politicians should they not be encouraged to leave their pulpits, and to leave them perma nently, rather than convert them into rostrums for political harangues ? If they were away, the places which they occupy might be filled by men who would feel the power of the Gospel m their own hearts, and preach it to the perishing. The Recorder says: " On ordinary occasions, we think that the minister who enjoy* his health and retains a good standing in the ministry,! *nd before whom lies an open fit-Id for 018 labors cannot be justified in leaving ; the Word of God, for *uch an employ-? rnent, so foreign, not to siy inferior, to ? that to which he has been called. Our' ? l?a,on for l^'s conviction is, that 1 the whole habit of mind which the min- I ist-r of the Gospel,ought to form anA ? cherish, the habit of devoting his cner- ' 5iesof thought and feeling mainlv to the! Ejects of his ministry, must tend to: imtit him to do himself justice, or to do - justice to his position, as a legislator. If tie gives himself wholly to his ministrv, l rie cannot, unless he be a very rare ex-1 ception among men, Income a skilful and ! well informed politician. There are very ! few such universal geniuses as can be ' completely fitted for occupations so di verse. As a general rule, it may be af firmed that a good minister, remaining such, cmnot be a good and competent legislator. 1 But we have, in the converse of this *tatement, a still more serious objection to adduce, viz: that active legislators, or politicians, cannot ordinarily be good ministers. To succeed as a politician, on? must give his heart and energies to the business. His zeal must kindle upon it. It raust occupy his public and his private hours. But if a minister thus devotes himself to politics or legislation, m>nd is, by necessity, in a great measure withdrawn from the sacred work to which he stands pledged to be wholly devoted. No man can serve two masters. No man can fill properly two jMJSitions, so far remote as the pulpit and [he political rostrum. The minister, who has a good standing in his profession, will be unwilling to become a politician unless he can achieve success also in that line. But this success is not to be gained by a mere nominal or official connection with political affairs, lie must carry his heart and soul into them. lie must ply a busy mind, not onlv in studying the objects of legislation, but in working the more complex machinery of politics. Offices are to be gained and given, elections are to be provided for and man aged. And, however upright the man himseT may be, he is almost necessarily brought into contact with much that is questionable, and ev.n base, in the arts of political intrigue and management. His mind, goto speak, is made to breathe in an atmt sphere that benumbs the spir itual sensibilities and hardens the heart. After one has spent the six days of the veek in the midst of such an atmosphere and in such employment, he is but poorly prepared, we must believe, to come forth to his people on the Sabbath and unfold to them the unsearchable riches of Christ whose kingdom is not of this world. " It is sad for the interest of the Church, ai d is adapted to arrest the progress of religion, when the impression obtains with any respectable portion of the public that the ministry are a set of ambitious schemers, seeking more for the honors or emoluments of office than se curing the eternal interest of their hear ers. And yet, what else would be likely to be thonght of the ministry, if clerical legislators were to abound ? When the greatly exaggerated repcrt went out, af ter oui State election last fall, that same sixty or seventy clergymen had been elected to the Legislature of this State, we felt mortified and ashamed ; yea, and* sad, and solicitous tor the interests of re ligion. When we afterwards learned that the greater part of this number were Methodist and Universalist ministers, we felt somewhat relieved. But we were more relived when we fo-nd that the ttory itself was a great exaggeration, ttiere being but about twenty-four, all told, and not more than five or six of these from our own denomination."

The act entitled " An act in addition to certain ffcts granting bounty land to certain officers and soldiers who have I b en engaged in the military service of the United States," approved March 3, 1855, entitles each of the surviving per sons in the following classes to a cer.ifi-1 cate or warrant for such quantity of land as shall make, in the whole, with what he may have heretofore received, one hundred and sixty acres, provided he shall have served a period not less than fourteen days, and shall establish said I service by record evidence, to wit: j 1. Commissioned and non-commis sioned officers. musicians, and privates, I whether of the regulars, volunteers.

Persons within the agel of twenty-one years on the 3d day of March, 1855, are deemed minors within J the intent and meaning of said act. To obtain the benefits of this act, the | claimant must make a declaration, under I oath, substantially according to the forms 1 hereto annexed. The signature ol the! applicant must be attested, and his or I her personal identity established by the I affidavits of two witnesses, whose resi I deuces must be given, aud whose credi-J bility must be sustained by the certifi-1 cate of the magistrate before whom the | application is verified.

The official character and signature of the magistrate who mfy administer the oath must be certified by the clerk of the proper court of record of his county, unuer the seal of the court. Whenever the certificate of the officer who authen ticates the signature of the magistrate is not written on the same sheet of paper which contains the signature to be au thenticated, the certificate must be at tached to said paper by a piece of tape or ribbon, the ends of which must pa^s under the official seal, so as to prevent any paper from being improperly at tached to the certificate. Applications in behalf of minors should be made in their mines by their guardian or next friend. Where there are several minora entitled to the same gratuity, one j may make the declaration. The wan ar t j will be issued to all jointly. In addition j to proof of service, as in athcr cases, the miuor must prove the death of his father, j that no widow suivives him md that he aud those he represents are the ouly ' minor children of the deceased. If a party die before the issue of a war rant to which he would be entitled, if living, the right to said warrant dies ? with him.
