The foundation stone of a new building was

The Institution, itself, was founded about
four years ago, by the friends of the London

the children of missionaries, especially in
the East and West Indies, after a certain
age, begin to droop under the influences of

are exposed to the contaminations of heathen
customs at a very susceptible period -of life.

Some years ago, when I was in Bonn,
Mr. Graham infurmed me that when at a

utterance to his opinions on the Deity of

in the University, and a preacher in one of
the pulpits of Bonn.
A TRACTARIAN CLERGYMAN in the
Diocese of 'Chichester, has been openly
teaching the doctrines of the Real Presence,
Transubstantiation, and Worship of the

man of unstable character, and the offender

The WALDENSIAN CHURCH has availed
itself of its new-born liberty, in erecting a
new church at Nice, for the congregation of
which the elequent and:able M. Pilatte is
pastor. His visit to this country, and es
pecially to the Irish Assembly, as one of
the Deputies of the Church Of the Valleys,
excited the deepest interest.
Nice is the third city in the Sardinian
dominions, with a native population of from
forty to fifty thousand. It is moreover a
centre of influence bath to Liguria ou the
East; and to France on the West. Several
towns near it arc already the scene of Evan
gelistic operatiobs. The church which has
been opened, is on the model of a Grecian
temple, of great beauty; accommodating
now five hundred persons, but on a-plan
capable of enlargement. Among the stran;
gers at the opening, were the Envoy of Pius=
sia, Baron De Rosen, and a considerable
number . of the suite of the Dowager. Em
press of Russia, who is staying at Nice for
the sake of the mild Winter climate.
The Free Church of Scotland has like
wise opened.a sanctuary at Nice, under the
ministry of Mr. 'Smith, late of Greenock,
and a large audience has already been col
lected. There are now Scotch churches,
served by the Free Church, at Cairnes, Nice,
Leghorn and Florence. The correspondent
of the Free Church. Record asks, in record
ing these facts, " Men will it come to
.Pu - ,ris It ought to have been one of the
first planted." The Free Church has an
important position at Leghorn, in Italy;
where,,the ministrations of the Rev. Dr.
Stewart are moat valuable. He has acquired
such a standing as to be able to do, much for
the introduction of light, by books and
tracts, into the interior.
IN GERMANY, a valuable service has been
rendered to the cause of religion by General
Von . Rudloff, by a "Hietory of the Scottish
Reformation." The Colonial Committee of
the. Free Church having sent him a present
of books, viz., " Ten Years' Conflict,"
"Memoirs of Chalmers," and ".Memoirs
and Remains of M l Cheyne, he writes in re
' ply a mast affectionate letter.
"It would," he says, " have been a guilty
want of faithfulness toward our blessed
Lord, if lukewarmness, or slothfulness, had
induced me to resist the impulse of my
heart, to make- known, also, to German
Evatmelical Christians, the wonders of Di
vine love and mercy in the Church of Scot
land, reintegrated in her ancient spirit, in
your very blessed Free Church." It will

IN SWEDEN, partial religious toleration
is about to be practically established. Dis
sent there means spiritual life. Native
Swedes may become Dissenters, but any op
posing the fundamental doctrines of reli
gion are to be subject to fine and imprison
ment. Conventicles may meet, but not in
the time of public worship. A Swedish
minister writes hopefully of this, as "an
ecclesiastical movement of a very compre
hensive character. Great opposition will
naturally arise from stiff necked prelates,
and enslaved peasants. But the enchained
powers of darkness are too few and feeble
to check the light of the Gospel in its
mighty progress." To this he adds :
" Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is
freedom, saith the Scripture. in many
souls the Spirit is now striving. The crown
rights of Jesus Christ shall, therefore,
surely here also prevail. The Free Church
of Scotland stands yet as an ideal which the
Swedish National Church shall not for a
long time reach." Special prayer by all
free churches, and all spiritually-minded
men, should be offered for the Protestants of
Northern Europe. The reforming party are
a growing, but yet a feeble band, and the
masses, it is, to be feared, are in the bondage
of spiritual darkness.
IN CHINA, at Amoy, our English Pres
byterian Mission is still blessed of. God.
It is a remarkable fact that Mr. Douglas,
one of the missionaries, within eighteen
months of his ordination at Glasgow, should
be found conducting the whole services in
Chinese, and administering the Lords Sup
per and Baptism. The number, of church
members in and around Amoy, where pre
vious to 1854 the missionaries had labOred
with little success, are now three hundred
and forty•fire. Another step, also, has
been taken by the ordination of elders
and deacons, by the American Dutch Re
formed missionaries, and Mr. Douglas.
The Rev. W. Burns, previous to his ar
rest, had penetrated to Swatoro, in the
Eastern part of the Canton province—the
fifth locality in China in which he has la
bored, and the fourth dialect he has, mas
tered. There he found a barbarous people,
people working in the fields in a state of
nudity in Summer; "and within the last
twenty years, I am credibly informed, per

not only been cut to pieces, but their heart

of Gospel laborers, and of the power of
God accompanying their words. Where are
the volunteers for this service, and where
are' those who will hold up their hands in
this fight ?"
Is there no student in the United States
who reads this appeal, who is ready to say,
"Here am I, send me !" Let us hope and
pray that the unexpected quarrel of Eng
land with China, may be overruled for the
furtherance of the Gospel. It is time that
all civilized nations should have free access
to every part of China, and be no longer
treated as "outside barbarians." At Can
ton the population is fierce and insolent
it is somewhat remarkable that a conflict
with Great . Britain should occur at the very
time that the great insurrection has made a
decided step in China toward the final over
throw of the Tartar dynasty. Shanghai has
been captured by the rebel army, and its
leader announces himself as a descendant
of Ming, the last of the ancient and native
race of kings. He also invites merchants
of all nations to trade as formerly. We
shall, I trust, ere the end of the year, have
signal developments of Divine providence
and its purposes, in regard to that vast
country whose first fruits have already been
gathered to Christ, and which contains, in
itself, one-third of the world's population.
We - have had fearful STORMS ON OUR
COASTS, accompanied with terrible Joss ,of
life: In one case a life-boat, trying- to res
cue the perishing, was submerged. Oa the
Goodwin sands, near the mouth of the
Thames, a mail packet, with all on board,
went down. But the case which has ex
cited the deepest interest was that of the
"Northern Belle," a fine American ship,
which was wrecked near Ramsgate. She
was watched froth 'the shore by crowds of
agonized spectators. The masts were cut
away, and, she, righted for a time. But
after a dreadful night, 'the Captain and crew
ware seen clinging to the spars. A lugger
trying to near them, was upset, with a large
crew, and all perished. • Then came the
crisis. A number of ' hardy boatmen
dranged a' lifeboat several miles along the
coast, and ventured out, amid fierce raging
billows,to the vessel. And' in three trips
they took off twenty-one persona, the Cap
tain and mate at first, in their despair, re
fusing to leave, declaring they would perish
with the ship. The " tears 'of gratitude "
on one side, and ," tears of joy" on the
other, when all were brought to shore, were
profuse. And now General Campbell, the
Athericart Consul, is taking deep interest in
his 'countrymen. Universal- sympathy is
expressed for them; and unbounded admira
tion for the gallant boatmen, who; without
hope of reward,- risked their liveeln this
enterprise of love,' fills the whole country.
Large sums of- Money are being sent in for
their benefit, and the Americans in London
are coming forward with their gifts, also,

lately and gloriously realized by the restora

The ARCEEBISHOP OF PARIS was buried,

are corrupt to the very core. J. W.
WasurNarow, February 2, 1857.
Mr. Buchanan has been here a week, and had
the opportunity of free confereoce with his friends
of all sections. As yet, the first great point is
not settled, and .the difficulties which surround
it, instead of diminishing, have been multiplied.
At one time, all the probabilities leaned to the
appointment of Gun. Cass as Secretary of State;
but that purpose was abandoned, for reasons
which have generally been conceded to be satis
factdl7. When Mr. Buchanan reached here, he
found opinion in regard to this particular place
as much unsettled as it was in his own mind; and
instead of being assisted by counsel, be has been
embarrassed by misgivings. While there are
numbers of aspirants for every other place, com
mon pretension is deterred in its dubitous flight,
when estimating the ability and experience re
quired for the management of our foreign affairs.
A. few days ego, the name of Mr. Hunter, of
Virginia, was proposed, as , a compromise between
-various ititel - ests for this position, although it
was previously understood that Mr. Floyd had
heen indicated to repre4ent that State in the
Cabinet. The suggestion was received with so
much deference by Mr. Buchanan, that it excited
the apprehension of the rival wing of the party;
and Gov. Wise and his familiar friends, who
lead it, were at once summoned to protest against
any such selection. They came, and personally
remonstrated with Mr. Buchanan, but with how
much effect, remains to be seen. It is mani
fest, that until the Premiership is disposed of, all
the other parts of the programme must remain in
abeyance. Under the complications which have
arisen, Gov. Marcy's . friends are not without
hope that the tide may turn in his favor. Their
great reliance is his experience and admitted
eminence, which are essential recommendations,
when contrasted with nothing more than political
No doubt is now entertained but that Mr. Cobb,
of Georgia, will be Secretary of the Treasury.
Mr. Buchanan is attached to him by stronger
ties than mere policy, and he is determined he
shall sit at the Council Board of the Administra
tion, no matter who else shall be excluded. But
Mr. Cobb does not relish the idea of Mr. Hunter's
elevation above him, upon the ground that he is
not prepared to yield a superior dignity to a man
of his own years and rank hi public life. This
unexpected opposition has increased the compli
cations, and Mr. Buchanan' is harassed amidst
the conflicting views by which he is surrounded.
Notwithstanding all these'vexations, the• Pres
ident-elect has continued to maintain his philoso
phy, and to enjoy society. ~He has been wel
comed with munificent hospitality,
• and Gen.
Pierce entertained him on "Saturday, at a State
dinner, at 'which the Cabinet • and other distin
guished persons were present. On Thursday
evening, he attended Mrs. Marcy's reception, and
was the bright, particular star of the occasion,
as he was the next night, at the 'President's
levee. His present purpose is to return to Wheat
land on Wednesday, and, then; as he informed a
prominent Southern Senator, to take the respon
sibility of making his•own Cabinet.
The event which created, most, sensation last
week, was the sudden death of Mr. Brooks; of
South Carolina. Only a feW minutes before the
final summons, be assured his friends the crisis
had passed, and he felt himself greatly inaproved.
Almost instantaneously,' he was seized with spas
modic croup, which terminated his life. The
obsequies on Thursday were . particularly im
posing, and brought together around the bier all
the Departments of Governinent, illustrating, as
it were, the vanity of that ambition which con
fides its hope of happiness to hutnan honors.
The occasion was unfortunately, marred by a
reference to the Sumner iffair, which ekcited
much feeling throughout the assembly, and dis
turbed that solemn proprietY whieh the presence
of the dead should always -inspire. Friends of-
Mr. Brooks were most conspicuous in censuring
this indiscreet episode, and Idr. Savage, who in
troduced it, must have been made to feel. the Un

The substitute proposed by the Committee of
Ways and Means for the Tariff bill and amend
ments they first reported; - has been before the
House several days, without attracting the atten
tion which a measure of so ranch importance
ought rightfully to claim.. The reductions con
templated by this scheme, amount to about Tonr
teen millions of dollars, which' upon the data
furnished by the Treasury Department, would
leave nearly fifty-two millions as the receipts from
customs for the ensuing fiscal year.. The House
is 'evidently indisposed to take up this subject in
its entirety, whatever it may be willing to do in
regard to particular objects, such as wool; sugar,
iron, and the like. There is •some danger even.
now, that when the House is brought to a direct
vote, combinations will appear in force, which
have concealed theirpurposofrom various causes.
And so far as the iron interests are involved, the
result will depend almost entirely upon the man
ner in which other parties, who are seeking spe
cial legislation, may succeed. If it be to their
advantage to strike down iron, by enlisting other
aid through that show of hostility, it will be done
regardless of political sympathies or conse
quences. It has always appeared to me that
there was greater cause of apprehension on this
score than those directly concerned were pre
pared to acknowledge, and I hope the result will
not verify my fears practically. It is pretty well
ascertained in the House that the opposition to
the substitute is not strong enough to lay it on
the table, and with this fact conceded, it be
comes manifest, that if the influences which-pre
vent this result can agree among themselves, they.
may carry any modifications or amendments they

Extreme Southern gentlemen in the Senate,

the qualifications or character of the latter, but
claim that the former is entitled to retention.
When Mr. Harrison's nomination was`under con

made to postpone it. with a view of giving the
President an opportunity to recall, or of.raising
such an opposition as would throw the question

By the steamer Arabia, Liverpool dates are re
ceived to the 17th of January. The prospects of
continued peace in Europe had become bright.
Rumors of wars, on the Continent, were scarce.
Complicated difficulties 'were being disentangled,
and matters re-arranged, and, altogether, things
looked favorable for the cause of human brother
Tap Damson CASE has taken a new phase.
Sir John Dobson having refused to hear the Ap
peal from, the decision of the. Archbishop, an ap•.
plication to the Court of Queen's Bench has been
made for a mandamus. This is subjecting the
Church to the State, in such a way as, if success
ful, to absorb her power, and render ecclesiasti
cal discipline a mere nullity.
THE INCOIIIP-- TAX causes, by its continuance
after the war is ended, great dissatisfaction. It
amounts to £16,000,000 ; that is £1,000,000 'far
each penny of the tax. The peace tax was 7ti.
on the pound ; the war tax 9d. Hence, to remove
the war tax would, on this one item, cause a re
duction of £,9,000,00 . 0 in' the revenue.
Tux Ihmumormn, to the • number of 10,000,
met in Smithfield, lately, to discuss their grievan
ces, and make known their wants. This is a new
feature of affairs, einployment haring been, for
same few years, wiry abundant.
NATUICALIp.TION is expounded, authoritatively,
as conferring upon its subjects no right to the
protection due to British citizens, where the nat
uralized are without, or beyond the British domin
ions unless they had, obtained from their own
governments the.right of denationalization.
Recent, account, from India inform us that a
brigade of British troops has marched through
the fatal pasges of Cabot, on their way to attack
Persia. The news Comes upon us rather by sm.-
prise. At:first, we were informed that our Aff
ghan allies would berleft to invade. Per,sia by way
of the desert, and that the British operations
would be confined to the expedition in the Persian
Gulf We are not informed of any reasons for
this change in the mode of operation. A more
startling rumor is abroad; to the effect that the
occupation of Herat by Persia is, the mere ISretest ,
on which the war is based; that the real reason
, is.the quarrel which (mewed several months ago, ;
between our Minister, Mr. Murray, and the Min
ister of the Shah, respecting the wife of one of '.
the emissaries of the ambassadorial staff.—Claris
The French Emperor is likely to gain a reputa

Rico—At his late residence, in wail; County, Pa, Nov
20th, Mr. WILSOS HAZLEIT, in the 40th year of his age.
,The subject of this brief notice was connected in early
youth, on profession of his faith in Christ, with the church
of his feithers; West Ifisbacoonillasisin which connexion he.
'Hied some twenty•four years, an es ample for fidelity in all
the walks of life, and also for itaatlflestneSp in the paths of
virtue. Cut down itt the meridian of life, and * when his
'prospect for mature age wasbrfght, he nevertheless evinced,
on his deathbed, that faith which is the believer's title to a
Ibissession with Christ, and that hope which is as an anchor
within the nail. Ile died cheered by tioe prospect of brighter
worlds beyond the skias, leaving behind him tosuffer their
irreParable toes, a wife and two small children. But their
.iessove rest assured, is his Unspeakable gain. The voice
that speaks frem his grave is, Prepare ye strong men to
hoW, and ye men of greatest vigor to yiehl to death, that
Leis us all prostrate in the dust.
khan—At Union, Lancaster County, Pa., on Wednesdc.v,
:lanuary Mrs. Isamu& Boss McClingcni, wife of Mr.
Samuel bleCoMmon, in the 49th year of her age. .
The deceased was led to embrace religion in earlylife, and
for many years was a consistent member of the Presbyterian
church of Union, adorning' the' doctrines of her God and
Snefonr, by an humblewalk, and gldly conversation 4 She
was of a meek and quiet spirit, modest and retiring in her
manners; kind. and benevolent in her feelings, and highl7
esteemed by all who knew her. - She has left a large and af
foettonatefamily to mourn her loss, consoled, however, by
the thought, that what is 'their loss is her eternal gain.
"say ye to the righteous, it shall he well with him."
then—Very soddenly, on the 24th Nov. last, of pulmonary
'affection ; at her own residence, near Claysville, Pa., Mrs.
Ilarmatt ORM, in the 63d year of her age.
The deceased was a regular and consistent member of the
Presbyterian church, at Clayeville, Pa, for nearly twenty.
five years. Although her death was sudden, yet shelled
long been looking for the summons; and gave evidencethat
she was prepared for the change. She had a deep sense of
sin and unworthiness, and placed ter entire dependence
for satiation in the Lord 'Mita Christ. On the evening pre
vious to her departure; she told the writer, "that although
she was au unworthy sinner, and had often many clouds,
yet she knew Christ was worthy, and she could not give up
her hope in him." Thrice; within little over two years, has
death called upon this beloved fluidly, and taken away the
father, then a promising son, in the bloom of youth, and
now the mother. Thereto strong evidence, that these three
are inheaven. in the full enjoyment of that Saviour whom
they loved and served' on earth. May the entire family be
re-united there. Reader. what are the prospects that you
and your family will meet; and dwell together in heaven?
Dten—At her residence, in Lima, Allen County, Ohio, on

Her life is another proof of the , depth and genuine spirit.
reality of that season of blessed visitation, which has sent
forth its fruits into hundreds of our Western churches, and
uthicis left also its mark on her family—Marquis—which has
been;und is now, well represented in the ministry of our
Church. She was calm, meek,'and bore both the good and
the iiis'of life with peen lax contentedness; in patience, alio

millietion es a Willing child, resigned to the will of her lle
deereer, to whom her anxieties were expressed for the salva
tion of all her children; who, although in grieved affection,
yet in the joy of a !utter hope, gave her up. Her husband,

to be hoped that this cross may yet, under the sweet moving
of the " Ceniforter," prove a blessingthat maketh rich, and
