New Brighton Normal Seminary
We have just received a catalogue of this flour.
ishing institution, from which we learn that its
next session will open on the first Monday of
November. The catalogue of this Seminary ex
hibits a degree of growth and prosperity seldom
met with in the history of educational enter
prises. It is only, a year since it passed into the
hands of Prof. Curry; yet since that time the
number of pupils has increased nearly three-fold,
and the number of boarders fifteen-fold.
Found ladies wishing to 'obtain a refined, lib
eral, thorough, and practical education, where
they can enjoy all the comforts and conveniences
of a pleasant home in a place proverbial for its
beauty and healthfulness, will in this institution
find every facility, as its faculty, which embraces
a great variety of talent and refinement, will
compare favorably with that of the best colleges
in the land. The principal, Prof. Curry, A. M.,
is a gentleman and scholar, every way qualified
to conduct a literary institution of any kind, and
one of the best practical teachers West of the Moun
tains. The ladies employed to impart instruction
in the Preparatory, Advanced, Musical and Orna
ment Departments are all graduates and profes
sional teachers ; and the course of instruction pur
sued is calculated not merely to present ; an array
of facts, and store the mind with useful knowl
edge, but also to unfold and develope its latent
principles and powers, and teach the pupils how
to analyze, and think ) and reason for themselves.
This institution affords superior advantages to
persona wishing to qualify themselves for the
teacher's profession—several of the last gradua
ting class have already been selected as leading
teachers in other seminaries. This institution
has recently been incorporated, with a charter
which, in addition to powers guaranteed to other
chartered female seminaries, delegates to the
faculty the power of conferring degrees upon
such of its pupils as they think worthy of its

THE AGAPEMONE, or the Abode of Love, is a
rising fanaticism in London, and is charged with
foul social enormities, leading to female wretched
ness and suicide. Its founder is It 'J. Prince,
and it seems to exceed even Mormonism in its
delusions and wickedness. An effort was recently
made to bring it into favor by a public meeting,
which seems to have signally failed. A London
paper says :
-For several days past the metropolis has been
placarded with large bills announcing (under the
heading of " The Agapemone") that a testimony
of what Christ has done to redeem the earth,
would be publicly made known at the Hanover
Square Rooms on. Friday evening, Sept. 26, and
that the admission would be free. On arriving
last night at the Hanover Square Rooms some
time before the appointed hour, we found that
about twenty persons were waiting to hear the
promised "testimony." The doors were opened
at half past seven, and in a short time two hun
dred respectably dressed men, and a few of the
females, took seats in the elegantly decorated
room of the building. The gathering was further
increased by the arrival of about three hundred
more persons. As the brothers of the Agapemone
establishment in Somersetshire did not make their
appearance on the platform at the time announced,
some impatience was manifested by the assembly.
At length two very serious gentlemen, apparently
about fifty years of age, with colored neckcloths,
and heads partly bald, came from behind a screen
upon the platform, and sat down in solemn silence
before the meeting for a few minutes. One of
them (his name was not announced) stepped for
ward to a table placed at the front of the plat
form, and, without any preface or prayer, pro
ceeded to give out twice,
in slow and measured
tones, the following, as the text of his discourse
(which, we were informed, is the standing text of
the Princeites") The Son of Man so loved
the earth that he gave his own Spirit, that who
soever believed in hita should not die, but should
be alive and abide the coming of the Lord. Be
hold he cometh." For aoout half an hohr he oc
cupied the time of the audience with, for the most
part, an exceedingly common-place discourse,'
full of repetitions of his text. The only "testi
mony," which was so eagerly expected, appeared
to be this, that hrother Prince, who had been a
child of wrath, had been made.a vessel of mercy.
Some might ask (said the speaker) what that
meant, as some bad foolishly or meadow:ly, or
'both, asked whether brother Prince was God or
the Messiah. He would tell theia what it meant.
It meant that the Holy, Ghost had redeemed the
body of brother Prince as Christ bad redeemed
his soul from the power of the devil. Brother
Prince *as now irresponsible for his acts. No
one now' could say to him, What doest thou?
Scoffers were to rise in the last days, and it was
not strange that people refused to believe that
these mighty things had been done for brother
Prince. Satan ruled the hearts of men, and gave
them a false conscience. (" True," and a cry of
" Oh l")
The other "brother" from the Agapemone
then appeared at the platform-table. It was bit
possible to ascertain his name or that of his col
league. The superintendent of the rooms had
not been favored with their .names, and a deaf
ear was turned to the cry of " Give us your
names," by. which the second brother was assailed
during his sermon. Whilst he addressed the
meeting he contrived, by dint of an energy which
caused some facial contortion, to hold a quizzing
glass in front of his right eye. Ile assured the
meeting that brother Prince was now free from
all self-consciousness and responsibility for his
actions. The meeting would stand' this no
longer. They hissed and became uproarious.
The "brother " at the table consulted with the
other brothel who had already poured out his
words, and in a few seconds they quickly made
their exeunt from the platform amid yells and
hooting. It was then resolved unanimously, and
amid cheering, on the motion of a working man,
named Newman, that what the meeting had just
heard from the two "brothers," was blasphemous
and contrary, to common sense.
The meeting then quietly separated.
A Great Blessing to the Afflicted
The number and formilable character of dis
eases of Liver have long challenged the attention
of medical men. some of these diseases, classed
under the general term of Consumption, :have
been supposed incurable, and the unhappy patiegt
allowed to die, without medical science to offer
him a hope of recovery. riappily this can no
longer be the case. A remedy has been found,
which will cure all complaints, of whatever char
acter, arising from derangement of the Liver.
The Pills discovered by Dr. McLane, of Virginia,
act directly on the Liver; and by correcting its
operation, and purifying it from disease, cuts off
and extirpates the complaints which have their
origin in the diseases of this organ. Remedies
hitherto proposed for Liver complaints, have
failed to operate upon the seat of the disease ;
but Dr. McLane's Pills make themselves felt upon
the action of the Liver, and by cleansing the
fountain, dry up the impure streams of disease
which thence derive their existence.
par Purchasers will be careful to ask for Dr.
M'Lane's Celebrated Liver Pills, manufactured by
Fleming Bros., Pittsburgh, Pa. There are other
Pills purporting to be Liver Pills, now before the
public. Dr. McLane's genuine Liver Pills, also
his Celebrated Vermifuge, can now be bad at all
respectable drug stores. None genuine without

A blooming Maid, a few short years ago, • •
We knew her, ere a serious tho Ugh t of God,
Of Christ, of judgment, or of death was ben.
We saw her wben,-,constrained by
. Jesus' love,
She neared the baptismal altar, and there
Her body, a living sacrifice, to
God presented. We saw h.r take the, bread,
And drink the wine, in mem'ry of her Lord;
We saw her weeping at a sister's grave,
And o'er the dying couch of a beloved brother.
When he, who was a little while to be
Her husband, to the marriage altar led her,
We heard the vows which made them one for life.
We looked Upon her when her sickness came;
And RI her paleness, with eye unduly bright,
And countenance lit with-a mother's love,
She gazed with joy upon her little child.

curate ecliolarship which it has hitherto borne in .public
estimation. wai rants the hope and expectation, as regards
the future, that it will atill redeem and ennoble its . char

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 from the paths of virtue and probity.
