It is curious enough that the sympathies of
the British merchants are on the side of the
powers that be; and the Record is dealing
out sharp measure to them for their pro
posals of British intervention to stop the
rebels, gilding the suggestion with the con
dition that the Imperialists shall give "per
fect religious toleration" all over China,
which, even if willing, it would be utterly
unable to secure. It is pretty clear that
with all their fanaticism, the rebels are ac
quainted with, and largely influenced by
the truths of revealed religion. At all
events, they are the Iconoclasts of the East;
and their sweeping destruction of idol tem

and power of him who once said, "Against
all the gods of Egypt will I execute judg

Study of the Sacred Scripture. By foseph
Angus, D. D., Member of the Royal Asiatic
Society. 18mo., pp. NO. Philadelphia: Tip
S. 4- Alfred Harden, 144 Chestnut Street. 1856.
We have felt no little surprise at witnessing
such an amount of really valuable matter con
densed into the compass of one volume, as this
book contains. Dr. Angus has been long known
in London, as one of the most learned of the
ministers among the Dissenters of the great me
tropolis. Of his acquirement, this work is are-
markable testimony. It is evidently the result of
much reflection, and the produce of the mental
toil of many years. In fact, it must have re
quired almost as much labor to condense the ma
terials of the volume as to collect them. The
main object of the work is to teach men to under
stand and appreciate the Bible ; and, at the same
time, to give such information on ancient litera
ture and history as may aid the - work of educe
tion among all classes. For the attainment of
this object, the matter of the work has been so
arranged, that the following subjects may be
studied by referring to particular parts of this
volume, viz: Exegetical, Historical, Systematic,
and Pastoral Theology, and Evidences. Under the
head of Exegesis are placed Philology, Criticism,
and Hermeneutics. Under Historical, Archmology,
and History of Doctrine are discussed. Dog
matic•at.d Practical Theology are the sub-divisions
of Systematic Theology; while Homiletics are
nced under the Division of Pastoral
and it will be found that this remark
ably.arranged hook will serve as a suggestive text
book on all these topics. while it is a learned In
troduction to the inspired volume itself. To min
isters, lieintiates and students, this will be found an
exceedingly valuable Hand-Book.
THE PRESI3YTERIAN BANNER AND ADVOCATE.
PENNSYLVANIA. - The election on Tuesday
seems to have gone strongly Democratic. The
returns received are far from being per
fect, but they indicate very mainifestly, that
Buchanan is to have a very strong vote in the
State. We give a few of the figures received, in
dicating majorities :
Republican and American.—Pittsburgh, 709 ;
Allegheny, ; (whole county of Allegheny,
4,000;) Delaware, 600; Union, 600: Lancaster,
Democratic.—Philadelphia, 6,000; Berks, 5,-
500; Westmoreland, 1200; Northumberland, 600;
Lehigh, 900; Schuylkill, 900; Bucks, 1,200;
°Bro.—The Republican vote in this State is
not so strong as was anticipated by some poli
ticians. The party majority, however, is con
jectured to be large.
INDIANA.—The returns are meagre, as yet.
MARYLAND.—In Baltimore the American ticket
for Mayor was carried by a majority of some six
teen hundred. A majority of the Councilmen
were elected by the same party. It is stated
that, during the latter part of the day there was
a great deal of disorder and fighting, pistols and
guns being freely used. The fighting in the Bth
and 14th Wards was particularly severe ; four
men were killed and fifty wounded—arbong the
latter three children.
FLORIDA.—First reports stated that the elec
tion in Florida had resulted in the success of the
Democratic ticket for Governor and Congress, and
a large Demooratie majority in the State Legisla
ture. Later information represents the result as

has occurred in about half of this State. The

with the Demoorats.

to have been the work of an incendiary.
Health of Charleston.
We had hoped to be able to announce, this
week, a decided decreasein the number of deaths
from yellow fever. Judging, however, from the

ceiving the official bill of weekly mortality, we

time the territory of Minnesota contains a popu

This is probably an underestimate, as last Winter
an official reckoning made the total one hundred
and twenty thousand. It is calculated, however,
that by the close of the emigration season of the
year 1857, the aggregate will be three hundred
thousand. If this be so, Minnesota will enter

freed the stomach from all sense of depression.

The steamer Niagara brings European news to
the 27th of. September.
There are still_ some rumor of wars in pros
pect, but nothing to produce any great alarm..
The demands of England and France, on Na
ples, for an internal reform in her government,
are not very definitely known. The. right of in
terference .is also doubted by ninny. Still, it
seems to be a thing decided on. Each of those
governments is sending eight war vessels, which
are to see to the interests of theirirespentive peo
ple and governments, in ease9of a diplomatic rup
ture; and that rupture is ordered, provided the
demands made are declined,..:Sardinia, also takes
part in the affair, and Austria has been notified of
the course determined on. To sympathize with
the oppressed is it duty, but an interference, by
oreigners, with the internal affairs of a country,
is of doubtful propriety. The case which will
justify it, must be peculiar.
The appointments to the - Sees of London and
Durham show a leaning on the part of the Gov
ernment toward Evangeliem. This is indicative
of a conservative influence, in these days of pro
clivity through High Churchism and Puseyism to
Popery, which is encouraging.
OPEN Ara PREACHING.—The Weekly Christian
" The splendid weather with which we have
been favored this season, has been taken advan
tage of by several devoted clergymen of the Es
tablished Church, and equally ueyoted ministers
of Non-conforming Churches, to preach the Gos
pel of Christ in the open air. We have ourselves
had the privilege of engaging frequently in these
delightful services, and can bear personal testi
mony to the earnestness ;with which the public
listen to the great truths of salvation. The spirit
of indifference to the Gospel, with which it has
been, the fashion to charge the multitude, does not
seem warranted by their behavior. Either this
charge was unjust, or a' happy change has taken
place recently. We have again and again seen
the promiscuous crowd listening with a decorus
attention which could not have been surpassed by
the ordinary congregation- in one of our public
sanctuaries. We have seen the effects of deep
thought traced on the countenance, and the big
wear stealing down the cheek of the listener. And
t e have known instances in which the name of
he preacher and• that of the church or chapel in
which he usually officiated, have been asked that
the'opportunity of hearing him again might be
enjoyed. These facts, are exceedingly encourag
ing, and .indicate clearly the path of duty to the
heralds of the cross. Let the ambassadors of
Christ speak, and we., are certain our countrymen
will hear. Let tbem proclaim a full, free and
complete salvation by the ever-blesse,d'Redeemer,
and the proclamation will find an echo in many a
TESTIMONY POE MISSIONARIES.—The scientific
expedition, under Prince Napoleon, to the North
Seas, speaks favorably of the Danish missionary
labors in Greenland.:
With an odd inconsistency, it, calls the Mora
vian brethren, ' adepts of the wild, stern sect' of
the Hussites of oldentime, but acknowledges the
admirable results of their labors as bearing the
impress of a high degree of piety, an ardent faith,
and a self-devotion only to be justly measured by
ihe scene on which it is exercised. Greatly
astonished were the crew, for the mostpart illite
rate, to find that the wild Esquimaux crowd
ing on board, knew, both how to read and write !
Christianity, in giving a softness to their manners
which many civilized nations might envy, has
developed the faculties awarded to them by na
ture. No parody of civilized life is to befound'
among them, to the honor of the Danish mission
aries be it, spoken.' The scientific party were
conducted to the different scenes of interest by
the Missionary Jansen, whom they found a most
intelligent and cultivated man, greatly, it would
appear, to their surprise: May it have struck
some of the party at least, that when the king
dom of God is first sought, all other necessary
things are superadded by our promise-keeping

of Mr. James Morrow.
Born into a- world of sin, it endured suffering for a short
season, exciting the love and tender sympathies of fond
parents, soon fell sweetly asleep in Jesus—a bud to expand,

Ulan—Wear Washington, 0., September 18th, 1856, DAviD
SMOLT, in the 27th year of his age.
The circumstances attending the'death of this youngman
demand more than a passing notice. He was the son of an
economical. industrious, successful farmer, and early im
bibed tbe habits of his father. On the morning of the 11th
of September, be went to the field to bring in the horses,
that they might be fed and harnessed, prior to their being
hitched to the plough. As bad been his custom, be took
with him no bridle, but mounting on the back of one
that had long been very gentle, be started off for the barn;
but before he reached it the horse becoming suddenly
frightened, threw him off, and in the fall fractured the
spinal cord, thus causing his death. He survived seven
days, during which time he suffered dratelfully, and con
versed very little. Ho had been long severely afflicted with
dyspepsia, and consequently was often . much depressed
in spirits, which caused him to lead a taciturn and
retired life. He expected to die through the influence
of bid disease, and bad no thoughts of being hurled into
eternity by such an unforeseen casualty. But ho went in a
way he little expected. Reader, let us be warned; for death
may coma at a time and in away unlimited for by us. The
'death of Mr. Sproat, together with the death of another
'young man name Stranitheh; who came to his - and suddenly

Dizn—On Sabbath morning, the 28th ult., very suddenly,
Mr. Mantaw Moscow, grandfather of the above infant, in the
67th year of his ago.'
The death of this brother beloved, has occasioned stiv.
prise ant sorrow—surprise from:the suddenness of the fatal
stroke, and deep sorrow for the lose to his family, the com
munity and church of which hs was so long an humble and
worthy member. At the-close of harvest he took a disease
in one of his toes, which soon affectid the one contiguous.
For a time he suffered much pain, which afterwards greatly
subsided. The toes both turned black, and he apprehended
the-loss of them, with confhiement for a season to his home,
and nothing more. He was cheerful and happy, always
pleased and Cheered with the company of his friends and
neighbors. And thus he remained, apparently greatly
better, until the morning of his decease, when approaching
the breakfast table, he suddenly complained of numbness in
his leg, with faintness, also. This spread up uuickly to
right side, and seemed there to stop for a moment; but
when assisted to his bed, he said to his sou, who had just
come in, that this -numbness was spreading all over his
body, and -that it was over with him. In a very few min
utes after this he was corpse. This disease, whatever it

The subject of this obituary was•orie of-the Moat useful
and influential members of the community in which she
resided. Of her it may be truly said, she lived the life and
died the death of the righteous. She inherited teem her
father, the Rev. John Carmichael, and her more distant
ancestors, the blessings of the covenant; and in answer to
their prayers, God set her apart in early youth for himself.
She has been a faithful, active and influential disciple of
Jesus Christ during two-thirds of a century. Endowed
with unusual energy and decision of character, her in
fluence has ever been deeply felt, Her temperament was
ardent, and whatever her hands found to do, she did with
her might. Her friendship was sincere, her disposition
cheerful and happy. These traits of character, sanctified
by Divine grace, gave her extensive influence in the cause
of her Redeemer, at the fireside, in the social circle, and in
the world at large. While all who knew her, admired her
cheerful and amiable disposition, and loved her for the sin
cerity of her friendship, few could he insensible to the in-
Silence of her ardent attachment to the God of her youth.
The benevolence of her heart always coincided with the
order of her temperament. Aid for the cause of Christ
never failed to meet, in her bosom, with a cordial response.
At home and abroad, her benevolence has been extended
with a bountiful hand. Her praise is in the churches, not
only of our own happy country, hat in those of India,
italestine, Africa and the isles of the ocean. She was one
of the few who, posseising more than an ordinary share of
the riches of this world, had the grace to use them in the
service of the Lord. Long shall her name be remembered.
It is embalmed in many hearts, cheered by her kindness
and benevolence. Although her work was drawing to a
close, and her aged footsteps were treading on the borders
of the grave, she could look onward into the 'future world
with that confidence in the promises of her heavenly
Father which hail sustained her amid the scenes of a long
and eventful life, and could equally uphold her, in the
solemn and trying hour of death. She could say, I know
whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to
keep that which I have committed unto him, against that
day," With calm resignation, and unwavering faith, she
met that day; and that solemn hour, beautifully illustrating
the character that could feel, as well as say, .
1 , Hy lifted eye, without a tear,
The gathering storm shall see,
' MT steadfast heart shall knoW no fear;

has been recently removed a short distance to anew and beau
tiful site, and enlarged in its d imeo stone, with an additional
story in height, and prepared for the reception of male end
female pupas. The character for sound learning, and ac
curate scholarship which it has hitherto borne in public
estimation, warrants the hope and expectation, as regards
the future, that it will still redeem and ennoble its char
acter; and this conviction is now strengthened, from the
fact that it is a Presbyterian institution, s but open to all )
under the guardian care of an efficient Dowd of Trustees,
appointed by the congregation, on whose fidelity the public
may depend, to make it a school not only of sound.learning
and morality, but also of piety and good order. It is lo
cated nine miles from =the city of 'Pittsburgh, in the midst
of a pious and orderly community, , where few temptations
exist to entice youth front the paths of virtue and probity.
The Winter term, will commence on the first Monday of
November, and continue five months. The terms are, for
the Classics and Mathematics, $1.2 per session; and for the
higher branches of English . Literature, from $6 toll° per
session, according to the branches taught; the tuition in all
cases to be paid in advance. For further particulars, as re

liar inducements to young men seeking an education. The
Board of-Instructors is composed of gentlemen of high lit

:location is very healthy, having the pure mountain air, and
free from all noxious vapors arising from stagnant water
and marshy ground. Those sUbject to ague could not 'find
a more desirable place. The temptations to vice, idleness,
and dissipation are few. It is quiet and retired, and there
is nothing to draw the mind of the student from his books.
It is just such a situation that young man deeirone of fin

teachers, a Normal Class will be formed, in which practical
lessons will be given in the theory and practice of teaching.
TO this class, lectures will be given on the subject of teach
