t.irally recognized as the Bishop of Lon-
Let ii; look at the new Bishop. His
aspect is sombre, if not sad, His face is fur
rowed, and his brow wrinkled. He has gone
through bitter trials, having lost five chil
dren last year, almost at a blow. He has
i)ceri a hard, " pale " student, too ; and a
; ;;; ril.workino• teacher of youth, also; and
than has toiled, as a strong ox, in the field at
Carlisle. His age is, one would say, about
ifty-two. He is rather tall, with dark,
lank hair, tinged with gray. His face is
not of the round, chubby, Saxon mould. It
is angular and Scotch. But there is repose
about his appearance. He seems free from
vanity or self esteem, and meekly bears his
honors. What part does he take to-day ?
Why, this is his part ; this occupation of
that loftiest seat, completes his claim to be
a Diocesan Bishop; and so, when at last the
weary service ends, he rises and "gives the
blessing," in a voice distinct, ringin g , full;
and one says, " That voice can fill thC'athe
dral any time, and long may it proclaim here
and elsewhere, the unseal-611We riches of
After the blessing, the congregation broke
up. Thus, you see, that the "enthroning"
was but the shadow of Rome's performance.
It is, however, an unhappy word, and a doubt
ig, to say the least, in the presence of

Its leader is Professor Jowett. He has pub

Lately it was menaced by the French Moni

Balaklava, together with Lord Cardigan,
(his brother-in-law, with whom he was con

and besides, was guilty of writing a letter to
Lord Raglan, for which he was recalled.
The London Daily News commented on
Lord Raglan's incompetency, as compared
with a Wellington or a Napoleon ; and at
the same time dealt very severely with Lord
Liman. The latter, who is proud, choleric
and fiery, rushed into a law suit. He
thought, perhaps, that the public did not
indorse the criticisms of the London press
on incompetent officers. But when the trial
came on last week, he was ignominiously de
feated, and a verdict was given " for the de

Court, and the applause of the whole nation.

of the Secretaries of the Scottish Branch of
the Evangelical Alliance, he took a very
active part in making arrangements for the

him then, and heard him speak words of
love, in a response on behalf of the Glasgow
citizens, who had shown so much kindness
to the brethren; but I little thought that
the seal of death was on his brow. He was

With you, ministers, especially those from
Europe, often break down from overwork in
a climate marked by extremes of heat and
cold. But here in London, the high pres
sure on the brain, and the constant demands
from the platform, the pulpit, the study,
work sad havoc also. No minister can, year
after year, live in London, and work hard
with impunity, unless by taking a thorough
Summer holiday. Even if his constitution
be good, it will be taxed sorely, and if weak,
he must sometimes be set aside altogether.,
or else go to foreign shores: My heart is
sad when I think of our Presbyterian
Doctor (Archer,) nnw away to Egypt, of

The " SUNDAY LEAGUE" tried, lately,
to form an Auxiliary at Canterbury. The
Cathedral clergy were absent, but the Die

design. Last-Lord's-day, at "The Eagle,"

palaces, where, in connexion with, the Gre
cian Theatre attached, multitudes of both
sexes have been ruined—there was a grand
performance of " sacred music !" 'Thus
" hypocrisy" and " cant" are taking refuge
among the Devil's professed servants. The
music was got up to gather a crowd for the
consumption of strong drink, and the night
would close with the grossest abominations.
The following is a Popish paper's account
of a PROCESSION got up in Ireland by the
The procession was, in great part, composed
of little boys and girls, - forming a line of great
length and delightful appearance. The girls
were dressed in white, with white veils and
gloves, carrying baskets of flowers, which they
strewed on the way. as they passed along, in imi
tation of the Jews coming out to meet the Re
deemer. The cross led the procession, and they
reverenced it ; the images of the saints and of the
blessed Virgin passed them, and were regarded
with reverence in like manner; then came the
sacrament—the host, the object of all our wor
ship—oarried by the bishop under a canopy;
and then did the thousands fall prostrate on the
ground and adore the Man-God, as saints and
angels do in heaven ; then was the hum of silent
adoration caught up and felt like an electric
shock, pervading the long line of the procession ;
then did every heart beat and pulse quicken to
glorify the sacred humanity of Christ, to worship
his real presence, as he was carried along, to adore
the body, blood, and soul among us of the second
person of the adorable Trinity. On the return of
the procession the chapel was filled to suffocation
by over six thousand people.
Mr. Dallas, Secretary to the Irish Church
Missions, maintains that the cause of Prot

the Society are not decreasing, and that the

that seventeen out of every thousand
Romanists in the Rhine provinces, are ju

WASHINGTON, DSO. 28, 1856.
Congress is resting from the nominal labors of
the last four weeks. The holidays are to be con
sumed in intermittent adjournments, when one
would have covered the purpose more gracefully,
and at the same time have afforded a practical
respite, which can now only be imperfectly en
joyed. That is to say, members and the attend
nuts upon Congress who are within hailing distance
of the Capitol, have the privilege of relaxation,
while those more remote are denied it, without
any advantage to the public, because no quorum
is retained for the transaction of business. The
whole proceeding is a farce, which fails even to
excite the pleasantry of spectators. What we
witness now in the way of eking out time, is but
a repetition of the annual habit of delaying legis
lation until after the entrance of the new year.
It was hoped, when the pay was nearly doubled,
that Congress would have reformed a practice
which would be more honored in the breach than
the observanCe. But reforms do not advance
rapidly in Washington. Their steps are rather
backwards, than forwards.
A proposition will be introduced immediately,
for revising the present unequal system of mile
age, under the new compensation law and for
correcting some of its other obvious defects. As
it now stands, several of the Territorial dele
gates receive from this source more than double
their whole pay, and without rendering any de
gree of service which might fairly claim such
discrimination. The principle of the proposed
improvement rests upon the idea that the pay
compensates for actual duty, while the mileage is
designed to cover the necessary and incidental
expenses of travel. It will require an Herculean
effort, however, to induce Congress to surrender
any ,part .of its , present perquisites; and as the
members most to be affected by the suggested
alteration hold a majority, they will readily find
excuses for staving it off. The opportune moment
has passed ; for if such a condition were desired,
it should have been engrafted when the compen
sation law was carried, at the last session.
The publication of the treaty recently made
between Mr, Dallas and Lord Clarendon, while
involving a direct violation of confidence some
where, has not actually contributed in any ma
terial degree to the public enlightenment. Its
substance and prominent points were not only
well understood, but very freely discussed before
the Convention was, communicated to the Senate
at all. This arrangement is likely to encounter
the decided opposition of those-Senators who are
ambitious of the distinction of being regarded as
peculiarly "progressive," and who suppose they
see, in every negotiation with England, some
surrender of American policy, or abandonment of
Anierican principle. In their eyes, territorial ex
pansion by whatever means it may be promoted, or
to whatever country it may be extended on this
continent, or the contiguous islands, is the true
idea of the times; and whoever falls short of it
is apt to be denounced as of doubtful patriotism.
Their sympathies are now enlisted with Walker
in Nicaragua, ae they have been heretofore with
all adventurers who promised to illustrate the
dootrine which lies at the foundation of their po
litical creed. • One of the -grounds of objection
that will be urged against the treaty, is the fact
that Nicaragua. was not admitted as a party to
the negotiations, and is now left, to accept or re
ject the result without having been able to dis
cuss the merits of conditiobs. in which she is
most deeply interested. There" may be some
diplomacy in this menaced opposition, since it is
very well known that Walker's agents have been
here, with. full power to acquiesce in the arrange
ment, provided this Government will recognize
his authority in Nicaragua. That is the special
object at which he and his friends are now aim
ing, and hence the treaty-will be used as a leverage
to aid its consummation. Their success is
rather problematical, as the President was not
leech recompensed for his first acceptance of, the
Roman Catholic Minister, Padre Vijil, and the
Secretary of State is known to be as irreconcilte
ble now as then, to any connexion whatever with
Walker's so-called Government. Besides, his
condition is regarded' here 'as eminently critical,
even by those who have habitually sanctioned hie
schemes- It was confidently given out, by confi
siential agents, before the last news Was received,
that,Walker would be successfully ,established at
Leon„ But instead of this assurance being re
alized;r.he, has ----

It iw now ascertained that the combination to

remove the duty from railroad iron is more for
midable than was at first apprehended. The
South is lino wn to favor it with unammity ; and the
North-Western States, with a part of New England,
are enlisted under a movement originating in
New York, and headed by companies and capital
ists of large means. Five per cent. is named as
the compensation to be paid on the duties re
funded and remitted within certain periods of
time. This inducement huh already brought to
the ground an organized agency, which combines
with it some influences of most questionable
characters. In all these large money schemes,
the only principle asserted and recognized is, that
the end justifies the means. Hence, scruple is
discarded in the employment of instruments ; and
every appliance is addressed that ingenuity may
suggest, or loose morals can conveniently adopt.
The temptation to careless and corrupt legislation
gt this session, is unusually great ; and this fact has
impressed managers with the necessity of an im
mediate and combined demonstration, upon the
miens and vast schemes which have been con
trived for depleting the Treasury. The Pacite
Railroad job; the renewal of large patent rights,
involving many millions; the admission of wool,
duty free ; and the remission of that on iron, are
only some of the most conspicuous operations
upon which the efforts and skill of the lobby are
now laboriously directed. Yet the unblushing
effrontery with which some of these projects have
been recommended, has already created a partial
re-action ; and when•such,of them as shall pass the
ordeal of the House, get over to the Senate, they
may find obstacles interposed, that were not quite
anticipated in the calculations of an overweening
confidence, which has grown reckless upon past
All the pilgrimages recently made to Mr. Bu
chanan, in Philadelphia, have not revealed any
settled fact, in : regard to the composition of the
Cabinet A studious reserve has been exhibited
on this point, even while canvassing persons and
probabilities. Mr. Buchanan haS heard' all the
suggestions made with deference, but he has giv,en
no committal, direct or indirect. And, of ,all the
men who have been named in, this connexion, Per
haps the only one upon.whom the genor4l opinion
lAA settled down conclusively, is Mr. Howell
Cobb, of Georgia, now a leading member of the
House of Representatives. And, although his
place has not been designated, it will probably be
that of Secretary of the Treasury. He has heen
urged in some quarters, with much persistency,
for the Premiership ; but neither his tastes nor
his qualifications incline in that direction.
The official paper here, the Union, now edited
by Judge Nicholson, of Tennessee, will be relin
quished into other hands after the 4th of March.
Mr. John Appleton, of Maine, who was Secretary
of Legation with Mr. Buchanan, at London, has
uow been designated for this important position ;
and he will bring to it respectable ability, and
what is more needed, sound discretion. Mr.
Nicholson visited Philadelphia upon this business,
at the request of the President elect, so that his
retirement will not involve any personal estrange
There is abundant evidence no* to 'establish
the fact; •that Mr. Buchanan has abandoned his
neutrality; in regard to the Senatorial contest in
Pennsylvania. He has. written a letter, signify
ing, in so many words, that the election of Mr.
John W. Forney would not only be agreeable to
him personally, but is actually merited, in grate
ful recognition of services long and faithfully ren
dered to the party. This decisive preference was
not expected ; and the knowledge of it has already
provoked criticism on the part of the friends of
those who aspired to the position, and of others,
who have old griefs to redress. But Mr. Bu
chanan is committed, and will not retrace the
step he has taken. Sanguine opponents now en
tertain the belief, that General Cameron will be
chosen, by uniting all the adverse interests, and,
perhaps, persuading a part of the small fraction
constituting the Democratic majority, to eo-ope
rate in their movement. But, of course, in this,
as in all such cases, the wish is father to the
thought. A CALM OBSERVER.

of their only church have remained with them,
laboring amid perils and hardships. Nine-tenths
of all the settlers within ten miles of that place
are said to be free State people, numbering in all
about five hundred souls. There has been much
suffering there. One benevoleut Quaker living
near, gave to the sufferers liberally as long is his
own store lasted, but at last he got sick himself,
and was then destitute; and was obliged to depend
upon relief from others. An old man seventy

an excellent effect in exciting `a,spirit of enter

Jefferson, varying only in the - application of
steam to the purpose of propelling the gun boats,
have been adopted by the British government on

Dizt.--At his residence, in Bridgewater, Pa:, Nov.2Bth
Mr. Moorhead's decease has awakened serious and sorrow
fulreflectionsin the breast of a large circle of friends. Ile

seven daughter,—whose. loss Is irreparable, save, as they
trust, in the witchfolcare and faithfulness of Min niceties
promised' to he the husband of the Widow, and a father to
the fatherless. 'This would not - be, and is not, true , of all
families thus bereaved; It can only, be true of those who.
have been ordered in the way of righteousness, by whole.
some parental authority, and Obristiair exiMple.,. For a
nninber of Years he had been is Ruling Rider in the church"
of Beaver, in whose Welfare, es well "as that of the Church
at large, he had taken an active and affectionate interest.
There: was nothing obtrusive or ostentatious in his charge•

professions, and conscientious in hi i endeavors to know the
truth, and discharge his : dirty: flit end, therefore, was a
blessed triumph over the last enemy. Ills Lord called, and,
we doubt not, led him through the dark, valley, up to the
mansions of light and love. .
How blessed the righteous when be dies! Jesus eald, "I
am the resuneetion and the life; he that bellevoth in me
though be were dead, yet shall he live; and whosoever
eth :and believeth In me, shall never die." The disease
which terminated his life , was congestion of the lungs,
brought on by alight cold, which was contracted some
eight or ten days before, while on a visit to his aged father,
in NeWcastle, who was then Sick, and- supposed to be nigh.
unto death. Being at the time in feeble health, he under,
took to do more than his strength would bear. But his great
anxiety to see his venerable parent before his death, led him
to expose himself by, traveling, when heought to haveneen
in his room. But we will not dare to complain. *lnkier.
