THE SECRET OF BEING SATISFIED.
A oertain bishop was remarkable fof bia
bappy and contented deposition. He met
with much opposition, and encountered nu
merous difficulties;, In hio journey through
life; but it was observed that he never
repined at bis condition, or betrayed the
least degree of impatience. An intimate
friend of bis, who highly admired the virtue
which he thought it impossible ta imitate,
one day asked the Bishop if he could commu-
mcate the secret 01 oeing aiways Bausnea,
'Yes, replied the good old man,
teach you my seoret, and with
facility. It consists in nothing more
than in making j a right use of my
.eyes." His friend (egged him to explain
bimself. "Most willingly," returned the
i bishop. "In whatever state I am, I first of
.all look up to heaven, and reflect that my
.principal business here is to get to that
blessed abode. I then look down, upon the
earth, and call to mind that, when I am dead,
I Khali occupy but a small npace in it. I
then look abroad into the world, and observe
what multitudes there are who, in every re
spect, are less fortunate than myself. Thus
I learn where true happiness is placed; where
all our cares must end; and how very little
re3on I have to repine, cr to complain."
SUMMARY OF CEUJiCH HEWS.
' . rRESBTTEIUAN.
A new church was organized at Marys
ville, Tennessee, on the lth of May, with a
good prospect of growth and usaf ulaess, the
Kex. James Park, of Enozville, and the Rev.
Mr. Morrison officiating.
The second Sabbath in April was a day
long to be remembered in the anaals of
Uchee Valley Church, Florida. After the
sermoc, and before the administration of the
Lord's Supper, about sixty persons stood up
before the pulpit and made a public profes
sion of religion. Among these was a consi
derable number of boys and girls. There
were also more than a dozen male heads of
families, their wives, in nearly every instance,
being already members of the church.
The Rev. J. II. Rice, D. D., has de
clined the call to the Franklin Church, Ten
nessee. At the close of the examination in Co
lumbia Theological Seminary, the usual cer
tificates were given to nine young brethren
of the senior class, one other having left the.
seminary previously on account of ill health.
Two of these young brethren have devoted
themselves to the work of foreign missions
one in China, and the other probably in Bra
zil. The number of students in the seminary
this year has been thirty-five.
During the last two years a spacious
lecture-room has been built by the Second
Presbyterian Church of Richmond, Va.,
which with other improvements has cost the
Church f(")400. This financial success was
attributed by the trustees in great part to the
envelope system of collections, which insured
regularity and faithfulness.
"Westminster College, Fulton, Missouri,
is doing a good work, both as a college and a
theologial school. Dr. Rice and his co
laborers have already sent out six young men
to preach the gospel. Mr. O. S. Thompson
and Mr. J. F. "rTatkins have been ordained,
and Messrs. O. W. Gauss, A. W. Milster, W.
McCarty, and W. H. Claggett have been
The number of Reformed congregations
in Berks county, Pa., is C8. These embrace

pastors, only making an average of a little
over three congregations to each paator. The
largest charge embraces nine congregations.
Only three are constituted of one congrega-1

A Reformed church was organized on
May C, at Orange City, Sioux county, Iowa,
by a committee of the Clasiis of Illinois. The
church was composed of thirty-three mem
bers, seventeen of them men. They are in
deep earnest, and are laying the foundations
of a church which in a few years will become,
with the ordinary blessing of God, multiplied
into two or mere prosperous churches. ,
St. Paul's Reformed Church, West For
tieth street, New York city, has abolished
altogether the system of pew rents, and thrown

vote of its membership. The vote was
On Easter Sunday, April 9, within a gun
shot of the stately Pantheon, in Via dei Bar

first Methodist chapel in Rome was solemnly
dedicated to the worship of Almighty God.
The building is a small and unpretending
structure, as were many of the meeting
houses of the early Methodist ancestors.

The General Theological Seminary of the
Episcopal Church is to be removed to Mama

The revival at Fond da Lao, "Wisconsin,
continues. Tbirty-five persons were received
to the church at the last communion, all but
three by profession. ,
For more than Bix years the church at
Raymond, Wisconsin, had been unable to
maintain regular Sabbath services; but they
now rejoice in a revival and one ho&drel
converts, forty-six of whom were received to
the church on the 80th of April.

! On Sabbath, May 7th, forty persons were
added to the Congregational charoa in Buck
