power, until now, with a population of up
wards of one hundred thousand, Islington,
as far as the Church of England is cod
acerned, is without exception, evangelical in
its ministry. New churches are being con
-1 stantly built, and into every one of them an
earnest preacher of the old doctrines of the
Reformation is introduced. The present
vicar, (the son of the Bishop of Calcutta,)
has a voice along with the trustees of every
new church, in the election of a minister.
The Tractarians have churches outside the
borders, but never could obtain a footing
amon,?: us. A Mr. McKreth, a rich layman,
recently wanted to get up a Puseyite church ;
the vicar resisted, and the Tractarian, in his
disappointment, has abused his courteous
opponent very bitterly.
The second case is that of the neighbor
ing parish of Clerkenwell, where, as the ex
ception to the general rule, the election of
the incumbent is in the hands of the
parishioners. The excitement arising out
of an appeal thus made recently to the
popular voice, has been very great, and the
crowds that have repaired to the church to
bear the candidates have been very large.
Meetings have been held, addresses de
livered, and the vestrymen, in whose bands
the election ultimately lay, have been ea
gerly canvassed. ' There were four candi
dates selected to preach " probationary ser
mons." Three of these were Evangelicals,
and one of them, Mr. Lester, had studied
theology under Chalmers and Welsh, after
'finishing his University course in England,
besides being an author of some reputation.
The popular Protestant candidate was a Mr.
Maguire, Secretary of the Islington Protest
ant Institute. Many heavy blows has he dealt
to the Cardinal and - his satraps in our par
ish" during the last few years. The
Papists of Clerkenwell and the Latitudi
narians and High Churchmen were for Mr.
Roberts, who had been curate of the parish
for some time, and who ignobly sought to
curry favor with Romanists by deprecating
all " controversy with fellow-Christians."
This gentleman was one of those Essex
clergymen,' whose lineaments, as a fox-hunt
ing, worldly band, I sketched in a former
letter; but at the same time he possessed
both .tact and eloquence. At last the hour
for final decision came, and amid intense
popular excitepent ; and "the result," says
the Times, was "received with loud cheers by
a large concourse of persons." Mr. Ma
guire was elected' by a majority of fifteen
over his opponent. I know the successful
candidate well; he is an earnest catholic
spirited man. He is sure to fill the long
deserted pews, and to visit the people in
their homes. It is a triumph of evangelism
over worldliness, and gives a signal illustra
tion of the value that the laity attach to the
fragment of a popular right, which the vile
system of patronage and purchase in the
English Church has so wickedly wrested
from them. In London there are other
" fragments" of the same system, espe
cially in the case of " Afternoon " or
" Evening Lectureships;" and it is in this
way that William Romaine and others emi
nent in usefulness, kept alive the torch of
truth amid the thick darkness of the last
age, and the earlier portion of the present
century. The power of election resting, how
ever, in the representatives of the Tate pay
ers, and not in the communicants, is but a
poor imitation after all, of the Scriptural and
Presbyterian system of election by the com

appears that in Persia, Russian influence
preponderates, and Persia is preparing an

Two war-steamers have been ordered from

In CHINA, the insurgent forces have fora
considerable time been going forward on
their path of conquest. A rally in favor of
the old Tartar dynasty seems lately to have
taken place; but its success is probably only
partial and temporary. The "rebels"are,
undoubtedly, to a certain extent, under the
influence of Bible principles, although these

How narrow our views; how impatient
our spirits; and how prone to unbelief,
when the enemy seems to prevail ! The ,
Church will have her rewards, if she but
have long patience. It is the firm convic
tion of many, that the nest ten years will be '
full of wondrous things—awful, stupendous,
undreampt of by politicians, but " the bur
den" of prophetic and Apocalyptic vision,
and in the issue inconceivably glorious.
A discussion in writing has been going
forward between the Secretary of the
BRITISH TEMPERANCE LEAGUE AND LORD
STANLEY, on the principle of compulsion, in
reference to the sale of intoxicating drinks,
and as illustrated by the Maine Liquor Law.
The correspondence is elaborate on both
sides. It seems to me that we are very far
from a state of public opinion, or of social
habits, which would give practical and pres
ent interest to such a question. The Gov
ernment persists in the licensing system;
and in thus drawing revenue from the peo
ple whom drinking habits brutalize, con
signing many of them to those prisons, and
subjecting them to those prosecutions, which
form such a frightful item in our annual ex
penditure. I think the principle is sound,
that to attempt to enforce a law which there
is no heart to keep, but rouses enmity, both
in the individual and the mass; and I be
lieve that any attempt to suppress drinking
by a wholesale sweeping measure, would
lead to a terrible reaction for evil. It is
melancholy to look around and see the mis
chief ceased by gin palaces and public
houses, and by their being open also on the
Lord's day. The facilities of temptation
might be much diminished by wise and
Christian legislation. Meantime, let sana
tory reform ; the making of the houses and
homes, by landlords, more comfortable; the
education of the young; the establishment
of working men's " Homes," in which
coffee and tea can be had, of the best qual
ity, at a low rate, with access to a pure litera
ture and the newspapers; let them be cher
ished to the utmost; and let arguments,
based on reason, on religion, and on medical
testimony, be addressed both to'young and
old, to persuade them to abstain.
Among the moral means employed for
the lteponex OE THE WORKING CLASSES,
not the least promising are two publications
issued by Mr. Smithies, a gentleman of rare
philanthropy. He is an employee in one of
our public works, and without any personal
advantage; nay, hitherto at a positive loss,
he commenced, some yeani ago, and still
sustains, " The Band of Hope," and " The
British Workingman!' The first is for
children; and by sweet stories, golden sen
tences, and beautiful wood cut illustrations,
(as I oan testify from personal observation,)
THE PRESBYTERIAN BANNER AND ADVOCATE.
young people arc taught in the most charm
ing way, le sons in favor of self-denial, mu
tual love, and humanity to the dumb crea
tion. There are many " Band of Hope So
cieties," for the promotion of temperance,
abroad over the kingdom. Next, there is
"The British Workman," for the laborer
and artisan. There lies a number of it on
the table while I write. Here at the top
are wood cuts of six or seven diprent, trades,
each in the person of a proper representa
dun, and in the midst—
" A STAVE FOR THE TIMES."
"Let wages be all settled
Ere Friday night be gone,
The weekly work be ended
By Saturday at One.
Let hatatless recreation
Give its after hours a zest,
And the Sunday be devoted
To worship and to rest."
The first article is "A Visit to the Hag
gerstown Coal Heavers ;" and it gives us
(with portraits of four of this class,) a de
lightful account of "men who were once
apparently hopeless characters, the husbands
of heart-broken wives, the fathers of ragged
and wretched children, and the constant
visitants of police courts, now sober and in
dustrious characters, some of whom are do
ing well, not only for this life, but the next;
and who may now be seen on the Sabbath,
accompanying their well-dressed families to
the house of God." Next comes the' con
tinuation of a series of articles on workmen
who have risen to eminence ; and here it is
"celebrated Shepherds," both home and for
eign. Among the former are the Rev. John
Brown, of Hadington, a William Caw, author
of a :recent work, " Truth frac' rang the
Heathen," (a. Prize Essay on the Evidences
of Christianity,) and David, Saunders, "The.
Shepherd of Salisbury Plain,"—while among
Shepherds of other lands, are Andrew
Montague, who became Professor in a French
College ; and Giotte, who became the
painter, sculptor, and architect of Florence.
Papers like these, inspiring workmen
with self-respect, and .with the idea of what
good conduct and self-reliance may make
them, together with tales, maxims, " col
umns for husbands and wives," "full of wise
counsels in pit by Saxon "—and such papers
as " What will Ruin Children," " Drink,"
(the father handing the foaming tankard,
as the wood cut shows, to his little boy, for
the first time)—are admirably calculated to
do great good.
Referring to these publications, I am re
minded of the gratifying fact, that Art, espe
cially in the matter of wood cutting, is now
so much employed in the advancement of re
ligion and morals. It is true, that The
London Journal, Reynolds' Miscellany, and
publications of even a viler character, ad
vance their circulation by Such means. But
Art is becoming a consecrated talent on both
sides of the Atlantic, in connexion with lit
erature, and will do so more and more. Our
Tract Society, in its "Sunday at Home,"
"Leisure Hour," as well as in very many
of its ordinary narrative tracts and " Month
ly Messengers," together with the Tract
Magazine, makes admirable use of wood en
graving. Its accumulated property in this
department is worth many thousand pounds;
and the artist, John Gilbert, who began his
career in connexion with the Society, has
(not by its managers only, but by other em
ployers and patrons, both in painting and
wood engraving,) amassed a fortune, I am
assured, of X 50,000 ! He is not more than
thirty-five years of age. His genius is ex
traordinary. What can be done by genius,
on or by a piece of wood, will reveal itself
to your eye, if you permit me, (whenever
you visit London,) to take you into our sub
editor's room, and show you some of Gil

A splendid entertainment was given lea
week to PROFESSOR MORSE, the eminent
American who invented the Electric Tele
graph. The Chairman, Mr. Cooke, a distin
guished director of the English Electric Tele
graph Company, who, with Professor Wheat
stern, first practically established the Elec
tric Telegraph in Great Britain, gave a most
interesting sketch of the rise of, the railway
system, and its speedy traveling, as con
trasted with the mail coaches of the olden
time. Next he referred to the establish
ment of Ocean Steamers between England
and the United States, in which he said;
"America takes the lead—produces the
swiftest ships, yachts, and steamboats."
Then came "the grand idea" of the tele-'
graph, such an advantage to a vast country
like America, and this invention originated
with Professor Morse, whose system is the
best, and " the simplest that ever has, or ever
will be conceived." Three points in Profes
sor Morse's speech deserve notice. First,
His acknowledgment of God in human dis
coveries, the " simultaneity " of which,
springing up in many minds'at once, finds
46 its proper solution in that the great Author
of all good, the Giver of every .gift to the
world, intends, when such a boon is bestowed,
that He first and prominently shall be recog
nized ;" so that when many minds have been
directed to one point without the possibility
of intercommunication, "one is lead to ex
claim, as by an irresistible impulse, ' What
hath God wrought Y' " Second, The oppor
tunity furnished and embraced to express
and promote mutual good-will between our
two great nations. How important Third,
The wonders and blessings yet to be devel•
oped by the telegraph. "Imbibing," says
Professor .Morse, " the spirit of the motto
Excelsior, we must look onward, until all
nations shall be linked in electric bonds, and
the telegraph over land, and beneath the
sea, shall proclaim a universal union. Then
the universal telegraph motto shall be not
E pluribus union., but Ex omnibus union."
Modern discoveries are in the hands of
Him who is Head over all things to the
Church, and are his pioneers! Blessed
thought ! The day is coming when the
telegraph shall be employed, not " to speed
the soft intercourse from pole to pole" of
human friendship, nor yet to arouse and
alarm by tidings of sudden revolutions, or
of battles lost and won, but to tell of
" nations born in a day," of " Babylon
the great fallen," of tyrants crushed, and
hoary superstitions overthrown, and that
The prospect of a DIRECT CORN TRADE
between Great Britain and Western Amer
ica excites a lively interest at this moment,
in consequence of the arrival at Liverpool
of the Dean Richmond, from Chicago, with
fourteen thousand bushels of wheat, coming
by a lirect route through Canada. We
shall need wheat this year from "the far
West," and so will France, which, by the
inundations of last Summer, as well as a de
ficient crop, must be a buyer in American
markets. The great mistake of the Govern
ment last year was to go by its agents as a
buyer to the United States, and to bring
home grain to sell below cost price, to the
ruin of lawful corn speculators. This
course has helped to precipitate the present
money crises in France, where dangerous
elements are at work. J. W.
P. S. A High Churchman, the Rev. A.

Sacramentarianism which has in one case

The deceased was upright, amiable, and much loved by
those who knew her. By conduct highly becoming, she
adorned a public profession of faith in Christ, wtich she
had made years ago. She is regretted; but we can hope
that death has been her gain.
DIED—At his residence, near Mllmam Seneca County,
Ohio, on the 17th ult., Mr. JONATHAN TITTLE, aged 72 3 ears.
Mr. Tittle was born in Westmoreland County, Pa., and
united with the Presbyterian church of Unity, Pa. Of this
church be remained a !clamber until his removal to Ohio,
in MIL Here he was still devoted. to the Church of hie
fathers, and remained a consistent and devoted member
until his death, exemplifying in his life the power and in•
fluence of the doctrines of grace.

and Ruth teele aged 2 years, 6 months, and 2 days.
Again are we reminded of the eitreme brevity and un
certainty of life. But though our little friend has been re
moved so Carly from our midst, yet we trust a Saviour's
blood bas cleansed his soul from all original defilement, and
he now stands, together with that great multitudo,Uround
the throne of God, clothed in linen, white and clean, and ID
his band a harp of gold; so that, although bis removal has
made a breach in the little family circle, not soou to be filled
up, and an "aching void" in the hearts of his bereaved and
sorrowful parents, yet we trust he has been taken to join
the heavenly choir, in singing that new song, "Salvation to
our God, which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the
Lamb." J. 14. W.
Dian-On the 3d nit., at Locust Hill, near Washington,
Pa., 3 seals NEVILLE, wife of H. W. Wilson, Esq., in the 38th
year of her ape.
The deceased spent most of her early life in the family of
an uncle, Neville B. Craig, BK., of Pittsburgh. Her pro
fession of attachment to Christ was made In the First Pres
byterian church of that city, in which many Christian
friends remain, to whom her memory is precious. During
her residence, of nearly ten years, at Washington, she also
endeared herself to many, beyond the circle of her own
happy home, and maintained, until death, the constancy of
Christian character, in the Church of her birth and of her
choke. Many, indeed, were the conflicts of her spirit, at•
tendant upon the progress of a slow pulmonary (Bream ;
yet grace won a complete victory over the longings of na
ture, and Made her resigned to the Supreme will, which
dermas ltd her reparation f.om a beloved husband and chil
dren, dearer than her own life. Happily she departed, as
we believe, to the rest of abetter world, leaving the bequest
of heaven's richest blessing to the bereaved, whom she left
to sorrow, yetnot as those without hope.

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 a young man desirous of im

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
ing. The Societies are in a flourishing condition, and each
has a fine library of choice works. The buildings are large
and commodious, capable of accommodating some fifty stu

tion, for the last eighteen years known as Bethel Academy,
has been recently removed a short distance to anew and bean-
Mel site, and enlarged In its dimensi me, with an additional
story in height, and prepared for the reception of male and

curate :.cliolarship which it has hitherto borne in public
estimation, warrants the hope and expectation, as regards
the future, that ft will stilt redeem and ennoble its char
acter; and this conviction is now strengthened, from the
fact that it is a Presbyterian institution, abut open to all )
under the guardian carp of an efficient Board of Trustees,
appointed by the congrrgation, 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 ie 10.

of a pious and orderly community, where few temptations
exist to entice youth from 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, $l2 per session; and for the
higher branches of English Literature, from $6 to $lO per
'session, according to the branches taught; the tuition in all
cases to be paid in advance. For further particulars tie re
gards books, ac., application may be made to the President
