I went down to PORTSMOUTH on the 18th
inst., in order to officiate, by appointment of
the Landon Presbytery, in a newly im
provised church, and to a newly formed
Longregation there, of a most interesting
ch itacter. An opportunity is thus given of
giving some information as to the advance
of English Presbyterianism, as well as of
noticing the great depot of the naval
strength of the British empire. Ports
mouth contains a population of about
eighty thousand souls. These are almost
all connected with the naval, military and
a iamen's or " dpckmen's " calling. It has a
magnificent road-stead for ships of war. It
contains a considerable garrison. In its
aval dook-yards, three thousand hands are
mployed. There I saw in progress of

P. S.—Some severe remarks of a portion
of the English press, on the speculations, by
French ministers, and by the Emperor him
self, in the funds, &0., and thereby accumu
lating large fortunes in an unprincipled
manner, has called forth a remonstrance
against freedom, from the official Moni
teur. The Times flings back a dignified de
fiance to the Emperor and his creatures, and
tells them, that at no cost will England
suffer the freedom of our press to be med
dled with. The horning Post, one of "the
base exceptions " denounced by the Times,
chimes in with the Ilfoniteur ; which is very
base on its part.

THE FAMILY EXPOSITOR ; or, a Paraphrase and
Version of the New Testament; with Critical
Notes, and a Practical Improvement to each
section. By Philip Doddridge, D. D. Im
perial, Bvo., pp. 1008. New York: Robert
Carter 4. Brothers, 630 Broadway. 1857.
We are greatly pleased that the spirited and
intelligent publishers of this standard Commen
tary have given such a capital edition to the
American public, as that which lies before us.
The work has occupied a deservedly high place
in the affections of the Christian public ; and its
excellences are so well known that no eulogium
is required from us, to commend it to our read
ers. The peculiar arrangement of the Commen
tary is such, that for family use it is invaluable.
The • author was aware that the structure of
Henry's celebrated work rendered it difficult for
heads of families to sub-divide it for daily read
ing, and accordingly he has arranged his notes in
such short sections as will enable a portion of Scrip..
ture, and its accompanying exposition, to be read
without prolonging the exercises of fandly wor
ship to an undue length. The critical exposition
Of the New Testament is in a very . advanced
state now, as compared with the days of Dod
dridge ; yet, for ordinary purposes, the Expositor
will be found exceedingly valuable by ministers
and licentiates. Those who have mastered the
criticism contained in the Notes, will find that
they will be obliged to read extensively in
modern works before they obtain much additional
valuable matter of a reliable character.: Our
Church, in the days of her early struggles, had
an enlightened and devoted friend in the person
of Doddridge. He saw the nature of the great
Western fields in which Presbyterianism was plant
ed, and by his influence extended to Nassau Hall,
and to such agencies as were calculated to pro
vide a pious and learned ministry for this coun
try, he sought the prosperity of our Zion. We
hope that this great work may have a circulation
commensurate with its long-established reputa

American Tract Society. 1866.
The late Rev. Thomas' A. Merrill, D. D., of
Middlebury, Vt., offered a premium of $5OO for
the best essay on the evils of war, and the best
mode of saving the world from the horrors which
ever accompany the appeal to arms. This pre
mium was awarded to the author of this work by
the judges, the Rev. J. W. Parker, D. D., the
Rev. A. D. Smith, D. D., and the Hon. William
J. Hubbard. Mr. Collier has produced a well
written and excellent essay; and we have no

der the influence of Christianity, the principles
which be here expounds would control them, and
the sword would remain in the scabbard. Un
fortunately that consummation has not yet been
realized; and dreadful although the battle-field
may be, war will not yet cease from the earth.
The sin of humanity brings this evil in its train,
and we see no prospect of its removal until the
nations of the earth are fully subject to Christ.
The advocates of the Establishment in Scotland
would rejoice to find Mr. Collier, in his seventh
chapter, arguing so strenuously for the principle,
"that the same rule should apply in general,
to both individuals-and nations." In this prin
ciple they fiiid one of their main supports for a
national establishment of religion.
THE AMERICAN POULTERER'S COMPANION. A

Domestic Poultry. Illustrated with portraits

A new, enlarged, and improved edition. By
C. N. Bement. With 120 illustrations on wood
and stone. Square, Bvo.. pp. 304. New York :
Harper Brothers. 1856.
Mr. Bement's work on Poultry has been before
the American public for some time, and its recep
tion has been such as to call for the new, en
larged, and exceedingly beautiful edition now
lying before us. We wish that all the intelligent
housewives in our country were supplied with a
copy of this attractive and useful book. This
volume on Poultry, and the Rev. Mr. Langstroth's
on the culture and management of the Bee, are
invaluable as household books in the rural homes
of our great and growing land. They are both
written by enthusiastic students in their respect
ive departments; and while the amount of knowl
edge which they contain is truly wonderful, they
are both eminently practical in their character.
We despair of conveying any adequate idea to
our readers of the beauty of the engravings, and
the amount of information contained in the work
now before us. To be properly valued, it must
be seen and studied.
A Cumn's HISTORY OF Roma. By John Bonner,
author of 64 A History of the United States."
In two vop. 18mo., pp. 307 and 305. New
York : Harper 4- Brothers. 1856.
The introductory part of this work gives the
juvenile reader some idea of the dress, manners,
religion and habits of the Romans. It then com
mences with the legendary period, and carries the
reader down to the year A. D. 476. Although
Mr. Bonner was wonderfully successful in his
Child's History of the United States, we think he
is vastly improved ; and the free and easy style
in which he here writes, is everything that could
be desired for the young. He 'displays freedom,
without descending to slang or vulgarity; and
while he states the great facts of history, and
portrays the characters whom he has to mention,
he dashes off his portraits with a freedom and
faithfulness, that his readers will be sure to un
derstand him. The illustrations of these vol
umes leave us nothing to desire in this depart
ment. So far as dress, houses, columns, soldiers,
buildings, coins, ships, religions sacrifices, and in
deed almost every department of Roman life can
be depicted by the artist, these volumes are all
that the most fastidious critic could desire.
The papers still abound with election .news ;
but the returns are yet imperfect. No doubt re
mains as to the result. Mr. Buchanan is clearly
elected. He has all the Southern States but
Maryland. In the. North he has Pennsylvania,
New Jersey, Indiana and Illinois. In the latter
State, the Republicans and Americans run sepa
rate Presidential tickets, and were defeated.

A vessel, name unknown, came in contact with

morning after the accident, all on board aban

The affairs of Europe, as appears from late ar
rivals, are becoming somewhat complicated. An
alliance between France and Russia is plainly
talked of, and a counter affiance between England
and Austria. The experience of the last two
years, however, has taught the nations that a
Diplomatic warfare is the better policy, as being
far less expensive of blood and treasure, than an
appeal to arms. The great powers are not likely
soon, to unsheath the sword against each other.
Papers which profess.to speak by 'authority, utter
some things that intimate dissatisfaction, but, for
the most part, they are more pacific than others.
The London Time Paris correspondent says:
" Whether well founded or not, the opinion is
very general, that not only does there exist a seri
ous difference between France and Fngland, on

The Paris Pays, having reiterated its assertion
that the Porte has required the Austrians to leave,
the London Globe (ministerial organ) says:
"This assertion of the Pays is a ludicrous mis
conception of the facts. The treaty of Paris sti
pulated that the Principalities should be evacua
ted—not at six months, but "as soon as possi
ble,"— and by this time, certainly, the Princi
palities ought to have been handed over to the
exclusive keeping of Turkey. But it is not Aus
tria who has retarded that delivery.
"Before the Austrian army could withdraw, it
would be necessary that the boundary between
Turkey and Russia should have been settled; but
it has not been settled, and until the boundary
line shall be made clear and certain, it is not to
be expected or desired that the guard placed there
on behalf or the Allies, should be withdrawn. This
is the vibw of the Turkish government. For we
need scarcely say, that the report of a demand on
behalf of that government for the retirement of
Austria, is the reverse of true."

A Good Comparison.
The Rev. William Roulett, a well-known Meth
odist clergyman, residing at Naples, draws the
following amusing but apt comparison between
Dr. M'Lane's celebrated Vermifuge and a ferret:
gg A ferret, when placed at the entrance of a
rat-hole, enters the aperture, travels , along the
passage, seizes upon the rat, exterminates his ex
istence, and draws the animal's defunct carcass
to the light. And in like manner have I found
Dr. M'Lane's American Vermifuge to operate °
upon worms, those dreadful and dangerous tor
mentors of children. This remedy, like the fer
ret, enters the aperture of the month, travels
down the gullet, hunts round the stomach, lays
hold of the worms, shakes the life out of the rep
tiles; sweeps clean their den, and carries their
caroesses clear out of the system. This, at least,
has been the effect of the Vermifuge upon my
A neighbor of Mr. Roulett, Mr. John Briggs,
adopts the simile of the reverend certifier; thus
both giving their most unequivocal approval of this
great specific, after having witnessed its opera
tion upon their own children. Let others try it,
and be satisfied.

M'lsane's Celebrated Vermifuge, manufactured by

THA. COOPER, in the 21st year of her age.
Her disease was consumption, which originated from a
cold. She was a consistent member of the Presbyterian
Church where she lived. She bore, with remaritablepattence'
and resignation, her suffering, which, though not scents,
was very prostrating. She was never heard to fret in the
least, though she lingered about six months. She bad, as
is believed, made her peace with God. When the time of
her departure drew near, her mind was calm and firmly
fixed on the Saviour. She was willing to depart and to be
with Christ, which is far better. In this dispensation o
God, a dower is cut down in early life; but oh, what a con
solation to those bereaved parents and brothers a d sisters,
that their Martha fell asleep in Jesus I Weep not for her,

Dtsn—On Long Island, on the 27th Ult., Mrs. MART MLR.
ILTON, aged 78 years.
This aged disciple of Jesus had long exhibited the Spirit,
and trod in the footsteps of her Lord and Saviour. Through
life she had not much of this world; but industriouily and
faithfully performed her duties as a wife, trained her chil
dren carefully , and affectionately, and visited the poor and
sick with sympathy. At one period she taught a Sabbath
School norm which helped, eventually, to lay the founda
tion for the Long Island church. Sho read the Scriptures
daily and prayerfully, and was prepared to impart Christian
counsel on all suitable opportunities, with meekness, and
was much beloved in life, and honored at death.
The prospect of her removal from earth had no terrors to
her. Amongst many triumphant expressions used by her
long before her departure, she expressed a desire to her pas
tor, that when her friends found that she wan departing,
they would sing her away to heaven. When a few minutes
before "her spirit took its leave for the Church triumphant,
she requested her children to give her a parting kiss, and
said death had no terrors for her, Trnly, "Blessed are the
dead which die in the Lord." Lei the living remember her
counsel, her prayers, and example.,

The deceased fell asleep on the 27th of September. 'She
lived a few years longer than is usually allotted to man.
Had she lived till the 29th of September, she would have
been seventy-three years old. She had : been a disciple of
Christ, in the Presbyterian Church for more than half a
century. She was truly a follower of the Redeemer. Every
one who knew her took knowledge that she " had been with
Jesus." Her kind and cheerful disposition, her constant,
Christian deportment, made her the favorite of all. Sbe ever
took a deep interest in the cause of Christ and his Church.
The Church has lost a warm and devoted member. While
her friends will weep their loss, they can rejoice that it is
her gain. She died of typhoid fever, while on a visit to her
Children in the West. But she found that the Saviour was
precious to her there. She died as she lived, joyously and
peacefully. Her name will remain embalmed in the memo
ry and hearts of many Christians and friends. "Blessed
are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth; yea,
with the Spirit, that they may rest front their labors; and
their works do follow them." D.

'Patterson, L. L. D., Viee.Provost of the University of Penn
sylvania, and relict of the Rev. U. Dn Bois, for many years,
pastor of the Presbyterian church in Doylestown. From
her youth she was an exemplary 'disciple of Jesus. In her
whole Christian career she beautifully illustrated a genuine
and cordial profession of the Gospel by her strong desires
and efforts to promote the temporal and spiritual 'welfare cf
those within the reach of her influence. She was a living
exemplification of the attractiveness of a meek and quiet
spirit, and was in truth an Israelite in whom was no guile.
She possessed rare judgment, and that strong common Renee,
which made her a wise counselor. It was her happiness to
see her numerous family grow up around her in respecta
bility and honor. One of her sons has been long in the rain_
iatry, and under the ministrations of a son-in-law, the succes
sor of her husband, it was her privilege and happiness to
sit during the latter part of her life. Her end was peace.

The subject of this notice was a son of John Jolley, of
Venango, Pa., and lived with his father till about the age or
twenty-one years. He was a young man of good education,
and spent a part of his time in teaching school. Some two
or three years before his death, he and . his brother went to
the Wsst, where they purchased land, with the prospect of
life and. happiness; but this fatal disease blasted the bright
hopes of this world. After taking ill, he sold his property,
and came home to prepare for that better laud, where no
sickness or sorrow shall ever enter. His disease wee slow
In its progress, but certain in its result. His sufferings were
very severe at times, which he bore with patience and sub
mission, never complaining of his distress. Though he never
made a profession of religion, he earnestly sought to make
his Peace with Gaff, and found that peace by believl4 in
Christ. His chief delight was in the praises of his Saviour,
though his voice . was very weak. He would often ask his
friends to sing some favorite hymn; and even in his last
moments, he expressed himself as being comforted in this
dark valley, by the rod and staff of that Saviour who dr
stroyed (the sting of death. The victory wee given him
through the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ; and, surround•
