when it appeared, ' about fifteen months .since.
We i refteit what we then stated, that there is no

enjoined by the Courts of the Churchin the pub

work before us,, , weltre free to admit that it is a
much me;elliefUlVointie than« Entaxia."' The
tide 6f tlie- *obtitie will show our readers that
the , conteista are 'mainly of. Presbyterian origin.
The infteence of the master mind of Calvin, on
allithelteforined churches, was truly wonderful.
Forinstanceithe Reformed Church of France re
eel C'onfamiion of Faith, the Form of Dis
und.also the form of Prayers and admin
istration of Sacrantanta which, at , their request,
he had dr4,lint up for them. The - WaldebseS of
Piedmont accepted 80 their own, the Confession
of Calvin, and they adopted the Reformed,Litur
gy, which their have used till the present time.
In Holland, as early as 1666, the Liturgy of Cal
vin, after Various modifications, Came into use.
The German Reformed Churches of the Palatinate
adopted the " Heidelburg Catechism," and Intro.
dueed the Reforined Worship with slight 'Varia
tions from the Genevan Ritual. In the French
speaking Cantons of Switzerland, the Evangeli
cal Churches have adopted, with some alterations,
the Liturgy of Geneva. This Ritual is found in
its most interesting form in the Church of . Neu
chatel •it Was I Prefiared by Ostervald, and an
imperfeet translation of it is in use in the Huge
not Chfireli, in Charleston, S. 0. In 1559 Knox
returneilfrom Geneva to Scotland. He brought
with him a copy of the Genevan Liturgy, which
he had used in the English Congregations in Ge
neva. He subititted this form to the General
Assembly for adoption. . It was ordered to be
printed, being " thoright necessary and profitable
for the Church." This Formulary continued in
more or less extensive use until the period of the
Westminster Assembly. .We state these facts
that our readervi May Anew the origin and the
history of the services which form the staple of
this inteinsting volume. The book is entirely
free from the objections which stand against the.
English service in which so much error his been
alloWed to retnein, and against which the Evan
gelical members of that Church have rio perea
veringly protested. There is no doubt but that
vihereVer the EPhicopal Prayer-Booh. is .fotind---
in hospitals ? in
,vessels-of-war, in, military acade
presence gives a visible embodiment to
that Church. Now, the publication of •this vol
ume presents" a Presbyterian book of tt far more
valuable character, which may •be used in the
merchant ,service, or • in ships-of-war, instead of
the English Forins, and whioh may also be profi
tably. consulted by many of our brethren at fu
nerals, as well as on occasions manifold by those
who feel convinced that they should have an altar
in their households, and who yet feel distrustful
of theh: ability to Jead the devotion a of their
families. The forms are extremely beautiful,
and the volume is attractive in its appearance.

DOUGLAS HOUSE Omaha City,
Nebraska, Dec. 11. ,
D. MICINNEY :—lf you will have the
goodness to give me your attention one mo
ment, I shall be happy to give you my im
pressions of this " Land of Promise," Ne
braska Territory ! A six months' residence
his , been sufficient to Convince me, of what
you may not he to concede, nainelb
that. Nebraska now• presents as strong, if not
the very strongest inducement to immigrants.
seeking's home in the Great West, and to
capitalists for permanent investments of
their fundS, portidd of our vast do
main. Do you concede it I will not dn
predate • the virtues, nor discuss the compar
ative importance of other Territories or.
States; nor yet °" weep over" the "doubt
ful cloMI" which oversbado#a any sister
, .Territory, but I shall only ask, Where is
Nebraska 7 What is ihe 7 and. What 'iS she
doimg .? Whercis. New York City, Philo-,
delphia, Buffalo r .(fincinnatii Oldeage, Zan
Francisco.? These cities are ,the great land
mark' irt most remarkable' belt; essentially ,
the "great commercial belt" 'cif our °Mit'
try.. tbie belt ineinden tbeB,nntketn:,
part of Nebiaska- 7 --enonib, to Main two or
three States as large as. Ohio. Another
fact is worthy of your consideration. = From
the.great.sea-ports, the iron bands running,
parallel and , divergent, Westward, have a
remarkable is convergence " in Chicago.
What . then
. 7 Continuing, your Wisfmard
coUrse, they Make equally as Marked a',
'?divergence" until they touch •
sippi River. Thence you trace the four
great Imre parallels to the Misiouri River,
all of them pointing into Nebraska. Thence
their contemplated "convergence" in the
Platte Valley. Thence' one vast trunk, to
California and the Pacific Coast. Iler com
mercial or geographical position,. therefore,
can scarcely be overestimated. Central in
this, again, is the point from which I write,
the Frio City, Omaha, Saratoga Florence,
opposite Council 131uffs, lowa, are, upon the
West bank of the "Great Muddy. Creek."
But you ask, W.GAT IS NEaIItAS.KA ?
I reply, "and in my answer
• I refer more
particularly to the region from 40° to '43°
latitude, and longitude from 96° ,to 100°.
First, her sail is good. It is a black, rich
loam, from one to ten feet thick. Crops
grow most luxuriantly, and the labor of the
agrioulturiatseeures a, most bountiful reward !
The surface is Undulating, but not, so much
so in many places, as to seriously interfere
with the interests of agriculture. Nearly
all the lands are arable.
Secondly, TaE CLIMATE I$ GOOD. It
is - much the 'same as the same parallel in
the East; perhaps .fewer sudden changes.
The atmosphere, however, is much purer,
clearer, and dryer, than the same parallels
in the East; and whilst the "mercury,"
rises as high and sinks as lo*, yet the heat
is not so oppressive, nor the cold so ". chilly,"
nor severe. No prevailing sickness has, as
yet, marred our peace, nor clothed our fami
lies in the habiliments of mourning. ,There
have been.some cases of typhoid lever, same
ague, and some bilious lever; but these
diseases have not been prevalent, and but
few deaths have occurred from any cause
Thirdly, WATT& 18 ABUNDANT, and of
the very best quality. • In addition to the
Missouri, the 'Yellow Stone,, the. Platte, the
Elk Horn, the Loup Fork, the Wood, the
Niubrarah, &c., &c., :innumerable smaller
streams and brooks meander her entire
surface; whilst hundreds of gushing springs
gladden the heart of the traveler .with their
" cold, limpid waters,"or invite the herds
and flocks of the yeoMan. The streams are
all rapid, and no stagnant Water nor green
accumulations thereon are ever seen.
Fourthly, SHE HAS MINERAL WEALTH. 1
To what extent, however, is not yet known.
Irod ore has been found in obi:incline" hi
some parts; also, liwestone, some
traces of coal. She has,fine saline niing,
and .sulphur springs, which may prove ofi
vast importance when properly d§feloped.
One great disadvan'tagis to the TeiritoiY, '
however, is the scarcity, of timber.... Par
sons who immigrate 'front • lowa, -Where
timber about as Mara' as hern - ,:or"
Illinois, do not seem to' tegiet
much; but persons from. . timbered 'freiti,pits.
miss it more. There is enough, hoWever,
for present use; and- it can easily and
speedily be grown if need be.
tut you ask, again, WHAT IS Ant Pao;
GRESS. In popthition she is Iriereaniog
rapidly. On the first day August her
population was upwards of ten thousand;-
but you must add a heavy Fall immigration,.
to ascertain her p#„sent nuinbein. As Mi.

I have already mentioned the Trio City,
and I should, perhaps, explain my meaning.
Omaha, Saratoga, and Florence, are . all
three upon the same plateau, and join each
other. The plateau is but six miles long, by
an ,average of nearly one mile wide; and
upon this the three towns,are building ; but
they are essentially but one point; and
unitedly, .I believe that they are . the point
for the largest, and most important city on'
the Missouri River. • The several parts of
the plateau, however ' have their advantages
and disadvantages. Omaha is the capital of
the TerriteiY, and lids more Wealth; enter;
prise and inhabitants than any other town
in the TerritorY. But she has too much
bottom land between her position on the
plateau and the river.; and there is a large
bar in the river immediately in front of the
town. Saratoga his much the advantage of
the original plot of Omaha, in' the' lib:ay
of the River, to thePateau ' andiri the iiiiimih
'ness, width and beauty of her portion'of the
plateau, and in the fact of being in the centre
of the plateau. She, toe; `owns the Celebrated
SulPhiir Springs; which, when properly im
proved,will make Saratoga ' of Nebraska, to the
Great West; as a faShionable wateringplace,

MY DEAR LITTLE COUSINS :—Once more,
after my long absence, I take my pen Up to
write to, you. all a kind, &miller letter. You
are aware that I have seen a great many Ail
you dUring the past Summer ;, and now that
I am safely at home once inore, it will
probably be some time ere I see you again.
And now, I presume many of you would
like to know. where I was, and what I. saw
during my visit: In the first place, I was
up among the Alleghenies, and had a de
lightful 'time, running athong the woods,
hunting for strawberries and teLrberries, and
watching the little squirrels, as they hopped
aboUt so nimbly from branch to branch.
Then I was at'several furnaces and forge,s,
where they manufacture iron. Some, of
these times I will describe to you the man
lier in which they make it fit for use,
. This time, I am going to tell you about a
little boy who I met this Summer, and what
lie did. His name was Gilbert. He was
the son of a very, poor woman, Who inade
her living by washing, and doing anything
'she could get :to do which was honest
There were "sevenor eight children; and,
several of them were obliged to, go ont, for
theinselves, and work. Oilbert was ahoy of
" ten years," and the fourth child. He was
quite, a pretty boy; but a very bad one.
The reason of this was, that at home, their
Inother never instructed her children; and
for this reason that she was a very ignorant
woman herself; and, ionsequently, they Were
allowed to run wild all' day; and when they
laid down to, sleep at night, no kind voice
was there to teach them their evening song,
no loving ear to hear them say their prayer.
What he did, you shall "now learn.
- Qne sweet, Sabbath morning, when every
thing was very still, and good people were,
all in church hearing the minister, as he
.preached to ,them fiart the precious Bible,
this wicked boy left hiS mother's honk, and
went out into a field behind a house, and sat
. down on. the green grass. What do you
think he went out there "for? Perhaps to ,
read, or:to sit still, and to think how good
!and kind 'God was to him. No; he, was
there for a very different purpose, He had.
not 'been there, very long, when a boy came
rip to the fence, and jumped over, saying at
the same time, (4 All ready, Oil. 7" " Yes;
and we will hake a good haul, won't we ?".

breaking the gltile in the

from it goods anionntinein value to ten dol

to the, window, ihera'Frank, the other boy,
was waiting for him. After he got out safely,
the 'boys laid down their goods, and set about
putting the boxes in theit right places,
Then they went off into the,fiela ; and hay
ing equally dit;ided their goods, they went
home,to their dinners. During the after

were heard, and of course it caused a , great

The trial proceeded; and to all, the ques

about how he had , obtained these thinus.

found nothing . upon him, he was let off.

the Judge said , ,that any boy who would do

Would no worse, ones!at twenty. After the

The Specie Goes to China.
From the official records, it appears that
the increase in the importation of teas and
silks from China, into Great Britain and
the United States, is alone almost sufficient
to account for this drain of the precious
_seems to be among
the most progressive institutions of the age
with both John Ball:and his young brother,
Jonathan—each party having doubled his
rations within the last eight years. Thus
the import Of tea for each year, ending June
30, has been into these countries, respect
ively, as follows : ,
Years. Great Britain. United States.
1849 lbs. 47,242,000 , : 18,072,000
1850 63,961,000 21,757,000
1851 , 64,026,000 28,700,000
1862 65,137,000 34,334,000
1853 72,096,000 40,974,0,00
1454 77,217,000 27,867,000
1866 86,602,090 81,515;080
Thus, it appears that since 1849, only
seven years ego, the',qUantityr tea
ported from China to the United Kingdom
and the United States; has increased from
.65,314,000 lbs. to 131,281,000 lbs.' , .The
cost has increased ih the same proportion.
In silk's' the increase has been even g,reater.
The amount imported, from China into. Great
Britain for the .year ending June 30, 1850,
was 16,134 lbs. ; in 1856, 55.489 lbs. . For
the year ending June 30, 1853, 'the United
States imported silks of various descriptions'
,to the valhe of thirty.three 'Millions of dol.-
