By some, the Prussian Cabinet is accused of
complicity; as it is known that at the
Paris Conferences the Prussian Plenipoten
tiary urged his master's claims without ef
fect, and represented them as urgent. Itis
thought that now, by means of diplomacy,
Prussia will finally resign her claims to a
Protectorate, cm. condition of a pecuniary
The coronation of the Czar has attracted
vast numbers from all parts of Europe, of
that multitudinous class who desire to hear
and see some new thing. The fine old, city
of Moscow was doubly resplendent by pro
cessions of tribes and nations (representa
tively) together with princes and potentates
clothed "in barbaric pomp and gold." The
Greek Church, no doubt, to the secret dis
gust of any rival Papists who might be
present, came out in great strength on this
occasion ; the Archbishop performing the
coronation act, and with his priests previous
ly presenting images and relics to be kissed
and adored by the Emperor and Empress.
The 'Times' correspondent, at Berlin, relates
how, in fulfilment of one portion of the pro
gramme of the entry, the Emperor dis
mounted at the " Gate of the Resurrection,"
to pay his devotions to a picture of the
Mother of God, handed down from Tamara,
Queen of the Grusians, who, in former ages,
converted the inhabitants of the Caucasus
to Christianity. A wound is seen by the
Orthodox Russian in the right cheek, whence
drops of blood (following the Circassian dag
ger,) once flowed I Thus the Greek Church
has her " bleeding pictures, too " Every
body begs homage here; and the miraculous
picture (or a duplicate for one is always at
the Gate I) is for money carried to the beds
of the sick on clinical excursions! Fifteen
thousand persons .witnessed the devotions
here of the Emperor and his wife, and "no
single eye remained dry among them."
There is another miraculous picture of the
Saviour near the Kremlin, which has "a
preternatural power of passive resistance ;"
as in -1812 the French sought to wrest it
from its frame, but got all their ladders
broken; and when a cannon was aimed at it
in the rage of disappointment, first the rain
wetted the priming, and then a glow
ing coal was brought, when lo 1 the cannon
burst, and the French gunner and his corn
fades were blown to pieces, while the ball
passed by the picture, leaving it quite un
hurt ! This is all very well in the way of
superstition ; and a fit sequence it was, that
on the night of the Emperor's entrance, all
Moscow was "drunk," and no doubt on the
night of the coronation, too, and for several
days after, it was the same.
What the future policy of Russia
will be, is a problem. Railways are
now the grand object; the Crimea is
to -be one grand terminus, and Constanti
nople, I believe, is still the hoped for, though
deferred prize. The Isle of Serpents' affair was suspicious, and Russia is sulky and re
monstrant on Lord Palmerston's vigorous
action. J. W.
P. S.—Among recent deaths, are two
somewhat remarkable. The' first is that of
Dr. Buckland, Dean of Westminster, the
eminent geologist, whose museum at Oxford
is one of the wonders of the place. He was
insane, or as Dean Swift called it "dead at
top," (pointing to a decaying old tree,) for
about twenty years. The second is that of
the young Earl of Shrewsbury. He was a
devotee of the Banish Church. His uncle,
the late Earl, was the same, and gave large
sums for the propagation of Popery in Eng
gland. Some years ago, at the dedication of
a grand chapel in Staffordshire, the future
young Earl swung incense before the Bishop;
and Dr. (now Cardinal) Wiseman declared
that they who built the Lord's house, the
Lord would build up their house. The prophet
has prophesied falsely; it was not the Lord's
house, but one 'of Satan's synagogues they
built up, and now the house of Shrewsbury
is extinct : A heavy blow and great dis
couragement is this to Popery in England.

TIVISII DEPUTATION.—Rev. Wm. Reilly
and lady arrived at New-York in the Persia.
Mr. Reilly is sent out by the Irish Confer

mission of raising funds in behalf of Meth

TOBACCO.—The late Wesleyan Conference
in England took strong ground against the use
of tobacco by ministers. Thirty-one candi
dates for admission were each asked if he
used tobacco; one replied that he did, by
the advice of three physicians, for his health.
The conference refused to receive him until
he promised to consult more eminent medi
cal counsel and abide by it.
DEDICATION OF HERTZOG HALL.—The
Peter Hertzog Theological Hall, erected by
the munificence of the late Mrs. Hertzog,
for the use of the Theological Seminary of
the Reformed Dutch Church, at New Bruns
wick, N. J., was dedicated with very inter
esting services on the 23d ult. The Hall
has cost some $35,000, and the entire
expense has been borne by Mrs. Hertzog.
And this we believe does not embrace all her
gifts to the Seminary.
MORMONISM IN ENGLAND.—An English
paper states that the Mormons are making
numerous converts in Great Brittain, by ex
aggerated pictures of life in Utah. They
now teach openly their doctrine of polygamy
but it seems no impediment to accessions
even from the gentler sex. The annual em

tor Bost, writing in the French Archives du

work on Christianity in Turkey, which nor
fates the history of the Protestant Reforma
tion now going on in the Armenian Church,
and has been recently translated into French.
This work, says M. Bost, is, in one sense,
the religious history of Turkey, a subject of
an exceptional and peculiar interest.
WORK INSTEAD OF TIWEL.-A medical
writer in the Boston Congregationalist, ear
nestly opposes the practice of ministers and
professional men traveling abroad to regain
lost health, affirming that in nine cases out of
ten, health is injured rather than benefittod
by such journeys. He asserts that if a par
ish, instead of furnishing their minister with
means for traveling abroad, would furnish
him with land for tillage, and the imple
ments of husbandry, it would better improve
his health, and more " abound to the riches
of their liberality." " Any sedentary inva
lid," he,says, "who will resort to this heav
en-ordained means of health of body and
peace of mind, will soon understand why
the old clergymen of this country had a
long ministry and a grectrold age."

The receipts of the United States Government
for the fiscal year ending June 30th, were $73,-
918,141.48, and the expenditures $72,948,792.02,
of which amount, $15,776,390.33 was paid for
the extinguishment of the public debt. The
customs revenue was $64,022,863.50. The re
turns of revenue from all sources for the present
year, terminating June 30th, 1857, show thus
far that the aggregate will reach $78,000,000.
The public debt is now reduced to about $30,000,-

fellowing cheering intelligence:
" The armed bands that have been ranging
through the territory are dispersed; citizens are
returning to their claims; business is reviving;
confidence is restored, and peace reigns through
out the territory. Warrants have been issued
for the arrest of Messrs. Jones, Stringfellow, and
other pro-slavery agitators. Governor Geary has
appointed Col. Titus to form a volunteer battalion
to preserve the peace in the neighborhood of Le

Captain Walder in the vicinity of Lawrence.'
October 3.—Governor Geary has issued a pro

Governor Geary, dated the 26th ult., says that
- United States troops will be stationed at points
where troubles are anticipated during the coming
election, and that any interference with 'the le
gitimate exercise of suffrage, will be punished
with the utmost severity. Mr. Whitefteld is the

A Gentleman living on Squirrel Hill, says :
" My wife has been sorely afflicted with Dys
pepsia for the last year. . During this time, she
had used so many medicines which seemed to ag
gravate rather than remove the disease, that we
almost despaired of- her recovery. Living in the
country, she enjoyed all the advantages of pure
air and exercise, yet each day she seemed to be
more enfeebled. With some difficulty, I persuaded
her to take your . Holland Bitters, which I am
happy to state has completely cured her."
No remedy ever invented bas been so successful
as the great worm medicine of Dr. Ill'Lane. All
who have used it have been equally astonished
and delighted at its wonderful energy and effica
cy. To publish all the testimonials in its favor
would fill volumes;.we must therefore centent
ourselves with a brief abstract of a few of theta.
Japhet C. Allen, of Amboy, gave a dose to a
child six years old, and it brought away eighty
three worms. He soon after gave another dose to
the same child, which brought away fifty more,
makinir one hundred and thirty-three worms in
about twelve hours.
Andrew Downing, of Cranbury Township, ye
nango County, gave his child one tea-spoonful,
and she passed one hundred and seventy-seven
worms. Next morning; on repetition of the dose,
she passed one hundred and thirteen more.
Jonathan lloughman, of West Union, Park
County, la., writes that he is unable to supply
the demand, as the people in his neighborhood
say, after a trial of the others, that none is equal
to Dr. McLane's Vermifuge.
Messrs. D. & J. W. Colton, of Winchester, Ind.,
happened last Spring to get some of this Vermi
fuge. After selling a few bottles, the demand
became so great for it that their stock was soon
exhausted. They state that it has produced the
best effect wherever used, and is very popular
among the people.

The steamship Africei arrived at'New York, on

THE Cacaos.-The veil which has so long hung
over the ecclesiastical intentions Of the Premier,
is at last partially lifted. It has been announced
as from authority, that Dr. Tait, the Dean of
Carlisle, the friend of Dr. Arnol4:arkd his imme

of London. The see of Durham is to be given,
not to the Bishop of Manchester as was generally
expected, but to Dr. Longley,, the Bishop of
Ripon, the father-in-law of Lord Congleton. Dr.
Tait is understood to belong to the Broad Church.

TICE SUNDAY LEAGIIE---SO the desecrators name
themselves—had a conference, and afterwards a
public meeting, on Monday. Of the conference
we hear nothing; the public meeting is thrust
into a corner even by those newspapers that ad
vocate their views. We could not desire a better
testimony to the failure of the projectors. Of
the members of Parliament promised, the only
one who made his appearance was Sir Joshua
Walmsley ; besides himself, the only individual
of any note was Mr. Robert Cox, of. Edinburgh,
a relative of Mr. Combe, :did who has himself
published some papers on Phrenology. The pro
ceedings at the meeting would have been dull be
yond description, if it bad not been for some op
position offered to the proceedings by certain
zealous friends of the Sabbath. We question the
propriety of such a course. The meeting was
called for a special purpose, and it ought not to
have been ;disturbed. The policy of the leaders
iu allowing the interruption .is obvious enough.
They were sure of an easy victory ; and they will
not be slow to turn the precedent to account

PARIS, Sept. I7.—There - was an unusual stir
last night at the Prefecture of Police and at the
Prison at Mazes, owing to the arrest of about
thirty persons belonging to a secret society. This
society, composed of revolutionists of the most
violent and dangerous kind; held a meeting yes
terday, at which it is said- that it was decided to
assassinate the Emperor on, his return from Biar
ritz. I understand that the Police know all the
members of this society, most of whom are old
members of the Marianne, inhabiting the sixth,
seventh and eighth arrondisements of Paris. The
majority of them are artisans. Several of those
arrested are very young, and appear intelligent
and not uneducated. They are also accused of a
plan to burn the crops, which was to have been
carried out on the 25th of last month.
By intelligence received at London, there can
be no doubt but that the .affairs of Naples are
rapidly approaching a crisis. The governments
of France and England intend, it is said, to with
draw their representatives.-from the Neapolitan
Court almost immediately, and dispatch four
ships of war (England two, and France two,) for
the protection of their subjects.
Queen Victoria, says.a letter from Berlin, of
the 15th, has sent rich presents to the. Princess
Louisa, on the occasion of her approaching mar

be present at the ceremony. The Princess is the
only sister of Prince Frederick William, who is
to marry the Princess Royal of England.

limn—At his residence, in Yalobinha County, Miss., on
the 26th of August, Mr. Honest BARBEE, Ruling Elder of
the Presbyterian church of Water Valley, in the 70th year
of his age.
Mr. Barber was a native of North Carolina, and removed
to South Carolina at an early age. Of his early history but
little is known to the writer, except that when comparatively
a young man, be connected himself with the Presbyterian
church of Bethel, York District, S. C., which connexion he
retained until his removal to this county. One of the die.
tioguiehed traits of his character was open honesty, and
stern integrity; his great firmness, and inflexibility of char
acter ; his exemplary piety and Christian-like deportment,
caused him to be recognized by all who knew him, as one of
the pillars of the church. Es was a kind husband, a good
father, and ari indulgent master. During his illness, he ex
hibited, all that calmness, patience and fortitude that is so
characteristic of the Christian, and died; as he bad lived,
trusting is Jesus. - A FRIEND.

"She has gone in the spring•three of life, -
Beeher sky had been dimmed by a cloud;
While her heart with the reptureof love was rife,
And the hopes of her youth were unbowed."
By, faithfulness and affection in the various relations of
life, as daughter, sister and friend, she was greatly endeared
to a large circle of associates, who now mourn her loss.
'Gentle in her disposition, sincere in her friendship, she was
'beloved by all. Exhibiting, in her daily walk and conver
sation, the early impressions received from Christian parents,
and In her last moments the example of one who had placed
her hope in her Saviour, and contemplated death as neither
distant nor undesirable. " Blesied are the dead' which- die
in the Lord." "For if Tesus died and rose again, even so
them, also, 'which sleep in Jesus, wilt God bring with him."
Her spirit has flown from this world of strife,
To heaven and angels' employ,
And has hastened away to that haven of life,
Where are pleasures and falleffs of Joy. IL C.

iip THE GOSPRE, EY JOHN.—This is the third volume
of a series on the .Evengelista The following are a part of
the many testimonies borne in favor of the former portions
of the work:
"These volumes display in a very eminent degree
the excellences which should appear in s condensed
commentary on any portion of the Word of God. They
embrace the- marrow of all the best writers and Coln-
Mentators on the Gospels. The labor which they must
have cost is immense, and could only haveheen deimted by
one whose heart was in the work. The Harmony of the
Gospels, which is interwoven in the Notes, and the wonder
ful condensation cf hints and expositions, render both vol
umes extremely valuabl e."—PrestP. Banner.
"For valuable condensation, and accuracy and safety of
interpretation, we think it superior to Barnes and would
advise its use in our Bible Claases."—Christian 7n tetligenecer.
"Admirably adapted to the Sabbath School, Bible Class,
and Family, with this advantage of preceding works, that it
has appropriated the results of the latest inquiries on vari
ous subjects connected with Biblical. Literature."—Puritan
"The author, by his learning, taste. and skill, is eminent
ly qualified for the responsible work of an annotator on
the Holy Scriptures. In his Notes, he Combines the mar
row and fatness of many commentators with his own ideas,
andassociates his comments with a Harmony of the Gospels,
in a very impressive manner."—Zion's Herald.
"The Notes are evidently, prepared with great care, and
fully illustrate the text to the comprehension, we had almost
said,Of the least attentive reader. We regard these volumes
as an important auxiliary to the study of the Gospels, and
a valuable addition to our Biblical Literature designed for
the masses."--dlibany Argus.
From James Hamilton, D. D., Lendon.—"l am especially
delighted to find that you pertevere with your Commentary
on the New Testament; and from its admirable execution,
I am not surprised, although very happy to learn, that the
former volumes have gone through so many editions."

HIGHLY USEFUL DIS C OVER TS—AN
elderly gentleman, accustomed to the raising and
managing of Beea, bee discovered a method by which he, or
any one, can prevent bees from going away. It is truly
untiring to be able to bring down a ,tray swarm that you
may hear passing over your head. Or if your been manifest
a disposition, when coming out of the hive, to fly off with
out lighting, you can make them light. Or If they attempt
to go away after they have been hived, you can make them
swarm on your hat, if you wish. It Is no trilling matter,
but truly usefnl and amusing, and every one thatis connected
with the raking of bees, should be acquainted with.
