    ond also notices ape appointment of James
Martineau, brother to Harriet Martineau, to
the charge of a 'Unitarian Theological School,
with commendation. But this same Mr. Mar
tineau has, forseveral years, given utterance
in his many and various writings, to undis
guised infidel sentiments.
The favorable expectations once enter
tained concerning the future of Professor
Huntingdon, have not been realized. In
the July number of his journal, there is a
circular, which says of the aims of the pub
lication : " Its theological position is thor
()u glily unsectarian." Unitarians and Trini
tarians are thus embraced in one fellowship,
no fundamental difference being admitted
between the two. But the pervading spirit
of the publication is now altogether Unita
rian, and opposed to Evangelical .doctrines.
The effort to raise $40,000, to secure
Tremont Temple es the Headquarters of
the Baptists in this country, is about to
prove successful. In addition to the church
accommodations, this property will, if judi
ciously managed, bring a revenue of several
thousands per annum. The Free-Will Bap
tists of Maine lately held their yearly meet
ing at Portland. A. large delegation was in
attendance. They claim to be, at present,
the largest denomination in the State.
The Eleventh Anniversary of the Metho
dist Biblical Institute, at Concord, N. H.,
was held on the oth inst. A proposition
was made by a getleman in Boston, to give
the institute $15,000 worth of property,
upon condition that it be removed to within
a few miles of Boston, and that $50,000 be
added to its present endowment. A corn
mate was appointed to take the matter into
consideration, and report at the next annual
meeting. .
Feeble Churches seem to be on the in
crease in New England. Ex-Governor
Slade says that he is acquainted with ten
churches in Vermont, that will soon cease to
be self-sustaining. This state of things is
attributed to emigration to the West, to the
absence of revivals, and to, the neglect, in
some places at least, of the precious and dis
tinguishing doctrines of the Gospel, and to
the substitution, in their stead, of mere
moral disquisitions and political addresses,
by the pastors.
The Good Order of this city seems to be
in great jeopardy : to restore quiet and peace
as quickly and as easily as was supposed,
seems impossible. It is a fearful thing to
evoke the spirit of lawlessness in any com
munity : silently and imperceptibly will it
pervade the whole frame-work and texture
of society, ready to be aroused at any mo
ment, to be followed with most disastrous
results. The President of the Metropolitan
Pollee Commissioners has resigned, owing,
as he alleges, to the rapidity with which ap
pointments were made for one of the Wards,
without any opportunity being given to make
a sufficient examination of the cha t racter and
fitness of the applicants. On last Saturday
it was found necessary to detail a large po
lice force for the protection of the Street
Commissioner's office. And great excite
ment, amounting almost to riot, prevailed at
the same time, among the Sailors, owing to
the movement on the part of owners and
masters against advanced wages, because of
the difficulties to which they give rise. That
New York should be subject to occasional
outbreaks cannot be considered strange,
when we think of the character of much of
its population, the arts of demagogues with
which they are plied, and the many incen
tives to evil with which they are surrounded.
It is said there are eleven thousand places
in the city and surrounding towns, where
intoxicating liquors are sold Who can es
timate the injury to public morals, to public
peace and tranquility, and to private char
acter, occasioned by such a tremendous en
ginery as this !-
Great complaint continues to be made of
the Desecration of the Sabbath, by the Ger
man military parades. These people are
welcomed to our shores : 11 here, by industry
and economy, they may speedily acquire a
competency, but the greater part of them
seem utterly unable to comprehend the sanc
tity of the Lord's day, as it is understood
and observed by the great mass of the Amer
ican people. But if the force of public opin
ion is not sufficient to conform them to our
views and habits in this particular, they
should certainly be made to know the power
of the civil law, and to feel that we claim
a right to use the holy Sabbath as a day of
sacred rest, and that this is a right they will
not be suffered to invade.
The Times of last Saturday, in an edi
torial column, makes an announcement,
with comments, that will astonish many
throughout the land, and which, if con
firmed by actual occurrences, will be one of
the most unexpected events in modern
times. It is no less than the .Anticipated
removal of Archbishop Hughes. No man
has been supposed to stand higher in the
estimation of the Papacy, to have received
more decided marks of approbation and
distinction, to have been more thoroughly
confided in, or to have done more for the
aggrandizement of the Papacy in this laud,
than this Prelate. He was the successor of
Bishop Dubois, a Frenchman by birth, and
from the heginninglas discharged his Epis
copal functions with ability, however much
he may have teen lacking in prudence at
times, or however he may have erred in ex
bibiting too speedily and too openly the'
avaricious and grasping designs of " the
Man of Sin." Yet this man, who has so
long occupied such a conspicuous place in
the Hierarchy and before the American
people, must come down from the elevation
on which he has stood so defiantly, and give
place to another, if the Times be oorract.
It seems the clergy of his own diocese are
the ones most loud in their opposition to him,
and most clamorous for his removal. Those
of them how present in Rome are said to
ask his removal for two• causes—because he .
has omitted to notice, with proper solemni
ties, the dogma of the Immaculate Coneep
tion ; and because, when the Pope's Nun
cio, M. Bedini, was attacked by the press,
stoned by the mob, and burned in effigy in
many of our cities and towns, his Grace,
Archbishop Hughes, found it convenient to
retire to Cuba, instead of coming to the aid
-and relief of the messenger to the churches
subject to Rome. If for any cause he is
really to be supplanted, no doubt every
means will be taken to make his fall as gen
tle as possible. Most probably he will be
allowed to petition his Holiness to be re
lieved of the cares that press so heavily
upon him, that he may spend the remainder
of his days in seclusion and devotion. It
is rumored that if an Irishman be appoint
ed, Bishop O'Connor, of Pittsburgh, will
be selected, and if an American, Bishop
M'Closkey, of Albany, formerly coadjutor
of New York, will be the man.
Putnam's Magazine was hailed with fa
vor at its first appearance, as supplying an
important want in the literature of the
country. But it is not too much to say that
its literary character has disappointed many,
and its treatment of evangelical religion,
more. At first, the absence of any direct
acknowledgment, even by implication, of
the claims and value of the Christian reli
gion and its institutions, the almost total
absence of any thing savoring of the spirit
of Christ, was noted as a defect. On the
other hand, not unfreqaently has occasion
been taken to commend the philosophy and
religion of Swedenborg; and opposition to
theological errors of all shades of opinion,
was dealt out in small measures. However,
the opposition of this Magazine to earnest
and serious piety, is becoming much more
evident and bold. In the June number,
Dr. Bellows is applauded for his superior
skill in discovering what was supposed to
have escaped the notice of the less saga
cious of the clergy, with regard to the
necessity for recreation and diversion of
body and mind. Then the Magazine re
minds its readers that "the time has , come
when the pretensions of the Church must
be abated, in order that its usefulness may
be extended. It is so charitable as to say
"that the professional Church has no mo
nopoly of Christian truth, Christian charac
ter, or Christian feeling." But that nothing
may be wanting to exhibit its dislike to se
rious religion, it expresses itself thus :
" The vast and increasing number of
honorable, upright, and respectable citizens
who compose 'the world,' can no long er be
terrified into a senseless disregard of the
first laws of human life and human society,
by the spectres of antiquated prejudice and
of venerable blundering."
The New York State Lunatic Asylum
was partially destroyed by fire on Tuesday,
the 14th inst. The loss is estimated at
from $lOO,OOO to $200,000. Five hundred
I patients were in the Asylum at the time,
none of whom weie seriously injured.
The Life of Dr. Kane, by Dr. Elder, is
nearly completed, and will be soon issued
by Messrs. Childs & Peterson. It will con
tain an account of his early life and travels,
in addition to those in the Arctic regions:
The publishers of the Arctic( Expeditions
have already`•paid $60,000 to the estate of
the author , for copyright, in a sale of nine
months. And there is every reason to be_
lieve that the sum will be increased to
$lOO,OOO. " The Life" will be in one
volume, and of equal size and beauty with
each volume of the Expeditions.
William Ogden Niles, known for many
years as the junior editor of Hiles' Register,
died at the Girard Rouse, on the Bth inst . :,
from an attack of paralysis.
The Philadelphia High School had 'its
commencement on Thursday, the 16th inst.
The 'degree of A. M. was conferred on ten
graduates of four years standing, and that
of A. B. on thirty-two young gentlemen
who had just completed the course of four
years. This institution continues to main
tain its high character for fidelity and learn
ing on the part of its professors and teach
ers, and for diligence and success on the
part of its pupils. •
At the Laying of the Corner-Stone of the
new Methodist Episcopal church, at the
corner of Eighth and Franklin Streets,
Bishop • Scott gave some interesting facts
concerning the introduction of Methodism
to the Quaker City. The first Society Was
organized by Captain T. Webb, a British
military officer, and a Methodist local
preacher, in 1767 or 1768. Muni's. Board
man and Pilmon, the first missionaries sent
over by Mr. Wesley, arrived, in October,
1769, and found Captain Webb and a so
ciety of about one hundred members. The
first class was formed in a sail loft belong
ing to one Croft, on what is now Dock
Street. The first house of public worship
owned by the Society, was secured in 1770.
It had been originally built for a German
Reformed church, but had been sold on ac
count of debt, to an individual for £7OO,
who afterwards' sold it to the Society for
£650. But at present there are within
what were, then the limits of Philadelphia,

preachers, and ,eleien thousand nine hun

REv. DR. MCKINNEY :—ally Dear Bro.:
—Permit me to acknowledge, through the
Balmer and Advocate, the kindness of
Christian friends in Canonsburg, Pa. I
have received from them the sum of forty
dollars toward replacing my books, which
were lost in the burning of the houses of
our Mission at Canton, China. Of this
sum, twenty dollars are from the young la
dies of the Olome Female Seminary, and
twenty dollars are from the members of the
Presbyterian church. I wish to express my
grateful thanks to all, and especially to the
"class of little girls" who added their con
tributions. The remembrance of their
kindness will be suitably perpetuated by
designating the books purchased therewith,
as " From Christian Friends in Canonsburg."
May He who has enjoined upon us "to bear
one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law
of Christ," and who has promised that
kindness shown to a disciple, in the name
of • a disciple, "shall in no wise lose its re
ward," bless them with •all spiritual bles
sings, in heavenly places, in Christ.

dria Academy, the folloWing resolutions

A Prpjeeted Literary Enterprise.
The number of journals in our country is
sufficiently large—too large for many of them to
attain to the highest degree of merit. Talent
and time must both be paid for. Able writers
C 1113130 be induced to devote days and weeks of
energy to the production of articles for the peri
odical press,,without a large remuneration.
This remuneration can be, afforded by publishers
only as"the result of a, very extensive circulation.
The contemplated periodical, if it shall ennead,
will likely displade others. To this privilege it
will be entitled, if it- shall meet the literary
'wants of the country. The Boston Journal,
speaking of it, •says •
"Such an effort , resolutely formed and strongly
based, is now soon to be developed by, the wealthy
and enterprising publishing house of Phillips,
Sampson & Co., of this pity. They propose to
start, early the coming Fall, The Northern Dfa:qa
zinc, monthly, at three dollars a year, to'be alto
gether original, and to aim at the highest:literary
and political character. The best of our Amer-
can writers have been secured for its pages, and,
an agent of the publishers is now in England to
Aire aid in that quarter. Such men as Emer
son, Longfellow, Lowell, Hawthorne, Hunting•
ton, Felton, and Agassiz, are to be its -master
spirits .It will, like the first-class British Re
views, discuss affairs of State—the higher -grade
of politics—and seek to give food for strong men,
not milk for babes, on all the greater themes of
practical life, as well as to separate the false
from the true, the low from the high; in our
struggles after an American literature. The ad
vent of this important enterprise will be awaited
with interest, and its progress watched with
eager and hopeful curiosity and favor."

Tag following from the pen• of ex-Senator
Hannigan, of Indiana, will be appreciated by all :
"We cannot refrain from calling , the attention
of our readers to the "'Hair Restorative" of
Prof. 0. J. Wood. It will be seen that he has
numerous certificates from persons of the highest
character, to the merits of his Restorative.
From positive knowledge we are also enabled to
say that it is in every sense what it professes to
be, and we do not hesitate to pronounce it the
finest preparation for the - head and' hair which
has, so far, been devised .by human 'ingenuity.
We have seen it arrest threatened baldness, and
restore to the head its original profusion of nat
ural and glossy hair; and when the
l atter, has
been prematurely tinged with gray, we have'
seen it, like magic, restore the colors of youth
and health. The distinguishing property of this,
we might- truly say, miraculous " Restorative "
is, that it gives to the person that uses it the
same head of hair they wore in youth, thus acting
in strict compliance with the first and greatestof all
toilet-makers—Nature. No one who has used it
will hesitate to' unite with Us in this testimony
to its peculiar merit."—Covington (bad.) People's

In 1804 he removed to Ohio, where he resided un
til the time of his death. He was for many years
a Ruling Rider in the Presbyterian church of
Bethesda, in the orga,nization of which he was
actively engaged. One of the first elders . chosen
in this church, he continued to discharge the
active duties of the office until a . short time be
fore his death. As a member of Session, he was
experienced, judicious and firm. As a, member
of Presbytery, he was accustomed to form his
own opinion, and freely and fearlessly express it.
As a member of the' church, he was eminently
consistent. He was noted for the regular; ob
servance of family worship. It is said that he
was never
, known to neglect this duty, morn
ing, or evening, when in his own house., His at
tendance upon the outward ordinances of religion
was regular and exemplary. His , end was peace.
Hope, as an anchor of the soul, sußte,fned and
comforted him throughout a lengthened period of
sicknese and bodily debility. "Be not slothful,
but followers of them who through faith and pa
tience inherit the promises." COMMUNICATED.

R. Ta - rtoit, in the 60th year of his age.
Mr, Taylor removed to Connellsville in the
Spring of 1839, where he resided until his death.
Through, this period he had been a member
of, the treabyterian Church, and for years before.
His first colmeition had been with the church of
Unity, :Westtnoreland County, then under the
pastoral, care of Rev. Charles Henry. Mr. T.
was respected .by thime who knew him. He
leaves a family, reared under his care, who have
been benefitted• by his prudent, counsels, and
sunervision. His death has been a severe stroke
upon them: It was unexpected, and came to him
through-.intense suffering. It was but some
forty4eight hours from the time he was taken
don from his usual health, till his removal ; and
&ming this Hine,. his pain was so great as to un
fitl him for con Versing, or 'even dellecting his
thmights. He was aware,_ however, that his - end
dieir near, and could say so in a brief 'respite
from pain which* , he had a few' moments before
his removal, as well add that 'he could still
hope in his profeed Bayiour. On the 'Sabbath
preceding his dOatk,linhad sat down, with others,
to partake oftheLord'sOupper ; on the next day he
was in attendance, upon the services of the sanc

This impressive dispenaation of Providence has
created, a Wide breach in the social circle of the
young in which she moved, designed no doubt
as another illustration of the solemn truth, that
the young may die, and that life at least is but
transient and uncertain. In the deceased were
happily blended many of the ornaments of female
character. She possessed an intellect of more
than ordinary sprightliness and vigor, which was
associated with a sweet, amiable, and retiring
disposition, that greatly endeared her to all that
enjoyed - her confidence and society. For the last
two years she was the subject of much religious
concern. Her mind was deeply impressed with
the necessity of giving her heart's best affections
to the Being whose goodness was displayed in all,
that she beheld, but particularly exhibited in the
price paid "for her immortal soul. She sought
him•in prayer in the silence of the night, as well
as in devotional retirement during the day. As
a sincere seeker of the favor of God, she was, an
interested attendant upon the services of"publio
worship, and upon all the means of grace acces
sible to her. God, in his mysterious workings.
seems to have been preparing her fora season of
efilictims. About four months since, it became
apparent to her family, by unmistakeable indica
tions, that the ties that bound her to earth would
soon be severed. Phthisic Pulmonalis, a slow
but sure destroyer of its victim, had marked her
as its object. , In-all "her affliction she was patient
and resigned. The God whose peace and favor
she had so long and' ardently sought, sustained her
in her affliction, and cheered her soul with the
consolations of his 'rich grace. As she neared
the Shores of the glory land, her prospects of
final enjoyment brightened ; and with the confi
dence and. composure resulting from a well
grounded hope, she informed her anxious and
weeping parents that she was not afraid to die,
and begged them not to weep for her. She is
gone. Yes, we have lost her l but our loss is her
infinite gain. Rest, thou loved one, in the arms
of thy precious Saviour,.and happy will it be for
those thou bast left behind, if they shall meet
thee in heaven.
She died in Jesus and is blest •
How calm her slumbers are!
From sufferings and from sin released,
And freed from every care.
Far from this world of toil and strife,
She's present with the Lord ;
The labors of this mortal life
End in,a large reward.
From adverse blasts; and lowering stoma,
Her favored soul He bore;
And with you bright, angelic forms,
She lives to die no more.
Dian—ln Huntingdon, on the 26th nit., aged
24 years, HENRY 11M• Kim, only surviving son of
the late Hon. John Ker.
Death, within the last few years, has made sad
inroads upon this interesting family, Of a
family consisting, four years ago, of eight, five
have been tahen. The subject of the preseitno.
tics was the eldest of three promising sons, all of
whom, within the last four months, have been
called to exchange earth for heaven. About six
months since, he accompanied to the South a
younger brother, who was in delicate health, and
who sought a milder climate with the hope of
being so far restored, that he might be able to
pursue his studies preparatory to entering the
ministry. This hope was delusive, and in about
three months from his leaving home he had passed
away ; not, however, until he had received the sad
intelligence of the death of his youngest brother,
a noble, pure-minded boy, who, while at a neigh
boring boarding school, had suddenly died.
Thus, in four short months, was a fond and affee
tionate mother bereaved of three promising and
noble sons. But, while she mourns over her
loss, yet she does not sorrow as those without
hope, since we have the comfortable assurance
that our loss is their eternal gain Henry M.
Her was a young man of the - finest feelinge.
Seniitive almost to a fault, he at all times'had the
greatest regard for the feelings of others. He
was endowed by nature with many noble traits of
character, which had been developed by a good
moral and religious education. He was remark
able' for his sincerity and veracity. Although
intimately acquainted with him for years,l never
knew him to vary the slightest from known
truth. In friendship be was constant. Slow to
receive any among the number of his friends;
yet, when trusted, they had his unbounded con
fidence. Nothing seemed too great a se.crifice in
behalf of his chosen corlifmnions. Selfishness
had no part in his character ; but he seemed at
all times willing to incommode himself, if he
could in the least add to the comfort and hapii
nese of others. These natural traits of character
were beautifully adorned by the graces of the
Christian. Having united in his youth with the
Presbyterian ohurch of Huntingdon, of which
:his father was for, years a worthy and distitV•
gnished elder, he led a consistent life.. He, was
particularly remarkable for his submission to the
!providence of God. Although depressed by the
repeated strokes he was called upon to bear, yet
he felt it .was right since God had done it, and
not a murmuring word fell from his lips. When
the command came to him, "Set thy house in
order," the raessenger found him fully prepared.
During his illness, - while speaking of the prob
able result of his disease; he expressed .himself
as joyful in the prospect of meeting those gone
before. In the morning of the day on which
he died, he called his mother to his bedside, And
stated the place where ho' wished to be buried.
/I.t this time, seeing her weep, he said, 46 Do not
weep for me. It does me good to talk of these
things. lam so contented and happy. - can

From the "Beaton Portlblio '
"It is a work which places its author at once in the high
est rank of modern religious , authors.. His analysis of the
doctrines held by the various schools of modern atheism,
are admirable, and his criticism original and profound ;
while his arguments in defence of the Christian faith are
powerful and convincing. It is an attractive as well as a
solid book; and he who peruses a few of its pages is, as it
were. irresistably drawn on to a thorough reading of the
book "
From the " Boston Journal :"
Tito style is very felieitous, and the reasoning clear and
cogent. The opposing: theories are fairly stated and com
bated with remarkable ease and skill. Even when the ar
gument falls within the range of science, it' is so happily
stated that no intelligent reader can fail to. understand .t.
Such a profound, dispassionate work is particularly called
for at the present time."
From the " Philadelphia Christian Observer :"'
It is justly described as a great argument,"magnifi
cent in its s'rength, order, and beauty,' in 'defence of truth,
and against the variant theories' of atheism. It reviews
the doctrines of the different schools of modern Atheism,
gives a fair statement of their theories, answers and re,
fates them, never evading, but meeting and crushing their
arguments "
From the " Christian Register:"
." Dr. _Buchanan is candid and impartial, too, as so strong
a man can afford to he, evades no argument, Undertakes no
opposing view, but meets his antagonists with the quiet
and unswerving confidence of a locomotive on iron tracks,
pretty sure to crash them."
From the "Philadelphia Presbyterian:"
"We hail this production of a master mind as a lucid,
vigorous, discriminating, and satisfactory refutation of the
various false philosophies which have appeared in modern
times to allure ingenious youth to their destruction. Dr.
Buchanan bait studied them thoroughly, weighed them die
passionately, and exposed their falsity and emptiness. Big
refutation is a clear stream of light frombeginning to end."
From the " Univerealiet Quarterly :"
"We recommend Modern Atheism' as a book for the
times, and as having special claims on theological students:.
From the "Congregationalist"
"It is remarkable for the clearness' with which it appre
hends and the fairness with which it states, not less than
for the ability with which it replies, to the schemes of un
belief in its'varions modern forms. It will be found easy to
read—though not light reading—and very quickening to
thought. while it clears away, one by one, the mists which
. the Devil has conjured around the great , doctrines of our
Faith, by the help of some of his ingenious modern coadju
tors, and leaves the truth of God standing in its serene
and pristine majesty, as if the breath of hatred never had
been breathed 'forth against it." -
From the New York "Christian Chronicle:"
" Dr. Buchanan has here gone into the enmity's camp,
and defeated him on his own ground.. The work is a mas
terly defence of faith against dogmatic unbelief on the one
hand, and that universal skepticism on the other, which
' neither affirms nor denies, on the ground oran assumed
deficiency of evidence as to the reality of Goland religion."
From, the " Christian Herald:'
It is a clearly and vigorously written hook. It it par
ticularly valuable for its clear statement and masterly
refutation of the Pantheism, of Spinoza, and his School."
