Pit.~l have had opportuni•
ty of convitsiog With several of our leading
wen in tlx West, rincc the disruption in
the New Sehool General Assembly, and
believe that you express our views in the
article contained in your issue of July 25tb,
beaded, tt t h e N ew Sohool Soutb— Would
their azoession to tic Old School be desira
ble!" We thank y,,u fur that article. We
believe it will do good. The truth is, if we
know the position of the Old School upon
the subj Pet of tila.very, it is not the position
of Dr. It His is not the doctrine upon
which we have so happily settled; and if he,
with his new and foreign views, finds en
trance among us, we fear for the result.
].owing, however, that he differs from us
upon that, as. also upon other questions of
importance, ho may have no idea of making
soy overtures to us; and may lead all who
iltopethise with him, to turn their attention
in other directions to find a home. Noticing
that but little progress is being made in the
matter of union between the Associate
iteforwed brethren South and ourselves,
leads we to speak of the late union between
the Seceders and that branch of the Church
These two families of the Pres
byterian Church have been long seeking to
effect Ft union. The Associate Reformed
brethren, especially, have been very anxious
for it, going far more than half way, as
hose of us who have been lookers on have
'.elieved, in their overtures to secure this
, esirable end. At length the union is
; cured, but if we are to judge by the testi
.ony found in their papers, it is not as
early as could be desired. here are found
.rotesters gist and West, which evidences
h'at not quite all has been secured that was
,nticipated. We make these observations
a no unkind spirit-, for we know of nothing
ore derArable than a hearty union between
bee two bodies, never being able to see
ny real cause for division in their case; yet
e refer to this state of things to inquire
f these brethren South ; who adhere to all
lie peculiarities of their Church, are pre•
iarLd for a union with us when so little
uod is resulting from the attempt with a
.inter Church, so nearly identical with them
.elves, that it is impossible for the uninitiated
o discover the difference ?
While speaking of Union, I am reminded
that this word has been made a sort of
b,ttle-ory by all sorts of errorists throughout
the West and South; and although the
thing itself is most desirable, yet we have
come to look with suspicion upon the person
who makes a free use of the term.
In the mouths of those who use it most,
it means, generally, that you are to give up
all that you hold dear in doctrine and prac
tice, adopt their errors, and there will be a
union. The followers of Alexander Camp
ball, within the memory of many, succeeded
in breaking up Christian Churches, and
gathering multitudes to themselves, by the
free use of this single potent word.
The writer once came in contact with one
of these zealous proselyters, in the person of
a shrewd, intelligent female. She claimed
to have no creed; entertained a most holy
horror of all who, deceived by the Devil, ad
hered tb anything of the kind; had a dislike to
all Churches, especially to the Presbyterian,
on account of the Arch Heretic, N. L. Rice;
and was particularly anxious to add to her
o any trophies, a moven to her notions, in
the form of an Old School Presbyterian
minister. She was not long in laying her
plans, and opened her batteries, by deliver
iog a broadside upon the blessedness of
union among Christians. To this, of course,
"North-West" said, amen ; inviting madam
to propose some feasible plan of union, and
if it would not require too great a sacrifice
on his part, she would not find him backward
in adopting it. "Sir," said she, "you must
be immersed " Although, madam, 1 have
hitherto been very tenacious upon the mode
of baptism, believing sprinkling or pouring
to be the true Scriptural mode, yet for the
sake of union, the blessings of which you
have so tiffeotingly described, I will con•
cede the point, and be immersed. But, first,
let me ask, what will you concede? "Me!"
Yee, madam; union you know implies mutual
concessions for greater good; and having
taken one step, I will claim that you take
one, and allow me to baptize, by immersion,
those beautiful children. " What, Sir;
baptize my children! No, Sir. I know
better than to allow that, I assure you."
Well, madam, any other concession as im
portant as the one I have made 'I Think of
the blessedness of union.
"Indeed, Sir, I have no concessions to
make." Ab, then, I think I understand
you; you wish me to come over to your
faith, and adopt your notions in full. I trust,
madam, you will never speak of 'union again.
I call all such efforts, "attempts to prose
lyte." Give them hereafter their true
The publivtion of the Minutes of the
Assembly, for 1857, enables us to note the
progress of our Church, in the valley of the
Mississippi. This, we do with profound
gratitude to God. Seeing, as we think we
do, his band in causing Zion to lengthen
her cords and strengthen her stakes.
I present, in the following table,
mary view of the condition of the Church
in three States, Illinois, lowa and Wisconsin,
in the years 1854 and 1857, and the increase
during these three years:
Synod of Wisconsin.
Ministers,_. . . . .
Clint ohm . .
Conmunicants, . . .
Synods Illinois i t Chicago.
tslitristers, . . . . . 88 112
Churches, . . . . 116 165
Communicants, . . . 4,715 7,705
Synod of lowa.
Ministers, . . . . .
Churehrs,. . 53 107 64
Communicants, . . . 1,193 4,159 2,966
Several instructive facts are presented in
these statistics. It will be perceived that
the Synod of Wisconsin is the weakest, and
has made the least progress of the three.
This is owing to the character of the popu.
lotion of that State; the American portion
of which is mainly from the New England
States, where it is well known there is little
or no sympathy with the peculiarities of
the Presbyterian form of church govern
ment. It will also be observed, that the
churches have had a healthy growth, an
increase of membership, which has indicated
a real progress. For instance,in Wisconsin,
the average membership in each church, in
1854, was nearly twenty.iaine; and, in 1857,
notwithstanding tbe increase in the number
of churches, the average is thirty two. In
the Synods of Illinois and Chicago, the
average, in 1854 was forty; in 1857, it is
forty seven, although the churches have, in
the meantime, increased from one hundred
and sixteen to one hundred and sixty.live.
In the Synod of lowa the same fact is still
more strikingly exemplified. Although
their churches have more than doubled in
number, in the last three 'Tars, the average
of membership has, in the same time, in
creased from twenty two soda half to thirty
eight and two•thirds. This fact is enconr
a4ing It slows that our progress has not
been of a fictitious character, increasing the
number of our miaiatry and aural/ea with.
out adding to our membership. I question
much whether any Church, upon this West
ern field, having the same difficulties to
surmount, can exhibit statistics which
contain a more urgent call, than these, for
thankfulness to the Bread Head of the
Church. To my brethren I would say, let
us thank•the Lord and take courage.
I do not know that the death of ex
cellent brother Church, of Princeton, Illinois,
has found its way, through the columns of
the Banner and Advocate, to your readers.
His death occurred about the Ist of May
last. As he was extensively known, and
much esteemed fur his many excellent qual
ities of heart and mind throughout this
region, I will hope to be able to send you,
in my next, a somewhat more extended
notice of his life and labors.
I see by the Dubuque papers that Ales.
ander College is anticipating a prosperous
future. She has secured a new and most
beautiful site for her new College building,
and, by the sale of the old edifice and
grounds, finds herself in funds to go forward
vigorously in securing new accommodations
for her Professors anestudents. The corps
of Faculry is full of good men and true; at
the head of which, stands Dr. Phelps, well
known as an able instructor We will hope
for a good report from this Institution as a
co-laborer in the great cause of education.
Carroll College is doing well. Their
commencement services took place on
July 15th, and as you have, no doubt, seen
a notice of them in the secular prints, I will
not now enter into detail It must be
encouraging to the friends of our Church in
the East, to know that these institutions are
beginning to show evidence of usefulness,
and to see an answer to their prayers in the
fruit which they are now enabled to bring
The weather is fine for our harvests; and
such harvests ! Never before was there
such abundant crops of small grain known
in the West. Intelligent farmers assure
me that the yield of wheat in Illinois,
Wisconsin, and lowa, will be double that of
any former year. "Oh, that men would
praise the Lord for his goodness." May we
not expect a full treasury, in the house of
the Lord, as the result of such abundance?
Yours, &c., NORTH-WEST.

It has been the lot of this State to occupy a
very prominent place in our National affairs, es
pecially in connexion,with the agitation of the
Slavery question. And on this subjecl it is not
likely soon to decline from its prominence. Ac
counts received, for the last year, seem to justify,
the thought, that a great political change is in
pregreSs. Immigrants from the -Northern and
Middle States have been, recently, purchasiog
Missouri lands with eagerness. These, with the
multitude of foreigners who are settling there, are
rapidly modifying the complexion of social send-
Ment. In the last Legislature, some remarks
were made favorable, prospectively, to emancipa
tion. Several recent elections in St Louis, look
that way. Some of the journals favor the ides.
But the most remarkable - feature in the case, is
the election (probably) for the next Governer of
the State of a gentleman claimed to be an eman.
Major Rolins to whom reports give the elec
tion, is spoken of as a good citizen. His political
sentiments, may be collected, to eome extent,
froth a recent speech at SL Louis. If it is cor
rectly given, he spoke with much plainness. The
remafks attributed t 6 him are as follows :
Now, in regard my opinion upon the subject
of "emancipation." I hear Weald, occassion
ally, that Missouri is destined to be a free State.
Very well. lam in favor of leaving that question,
to higher than human laws, and I am in favor of
submitting that question to the laws of climate,
of emigration, of labor, and of production; which,
first or last, affect the destiniiies of man and
Commonwealths; and to the clear guidance of Him
who does all these things well.
Now, I am in favor or encouraging labor in our
State ; protecting the labor of this great city,
and of the entire Commonwealth in which we
live. lam in favor of inviting and encouraging
emigration to the State of Missouri from every
I say, let us throw wide open our doors and
invite here men of the North and the South, and
men of every tongue and kindred upon the hab
liable glube. Invite them here to cultivate our
prairies, to till our land, to aid in developing our
mineral resources, to aid in filling up our great
cities, and in making Missouri the proudest and
noblest Commonwealth in this sisterhood of
States; and if, my friends, this cordial system of
emigration from North and South—if, I say, this
emigration in the course of years brings about
such a dilproportion between the white and black
races, that it is no longer the interest of the peo
ple of Missouri to continue it a slave State, I say,
"then let it go."
These are my opinion% my friends. • I hide
them from no one. Ido not wish to war with a
men, however, because he differs with me upon
the'subject. Ido not wish to war with a man
because he is an emancipationist. That is the
better and the wisest policy. My opinion is, that
in consequence of the agitation that such a ques
tion will awaken in the State, and in consequence
of the fact that we occupy a Northern latitude
here;. in consequence of the fact that the dis
proportion between the white and black races is
becoming greater and greater; and of the, fact
that in the course of time—in ten, twenty, or
fifty years most probably—it will become the in

would be best to let the question alone.

government in Nicaraugua, one of his returned
Grnerals undertook to assert, through a New

in all, had been sent to Central America. We
scouted at it as preposterous, and at length the
proof of its falsehood has come to hand. A San

Daily Times hai taken great pains to • ascertain
the true number of men sent from the Atlantic

that the honks of Charles Morgan, & Sons prove

MILLS STOPPED.—The number of cotton looms

mills that will run only till the cotton now in pro•
cess of manufacture is exhausted. This is the
only remedy. We talk of the short supply of cot
ton. The evil is not there ;it is the over supply
of cotton machinery. The looms now in operation
are not only too many for the supply of cotton,
they are too many for the demand for cotton goods
at anything like the prices which alone, at the
present' cost of the raw material, can return a

thousand horns have been stopped, and prices

"Delhi was stormed and taken June 12th, with

but decayed walls of which could afford them but
a temporary refuge."
The London Ttmes says that Delhi has been
made by the British a, sort of India Sebastopol,
having. been wonderfully strengthened with..for•
tifications and filled with cannon and ammunition;
and that it can be supplied to any extent by the
Jumma, which fl-,ws under its palace, and which
is in the hands of the natives. But the inferior

view, is too great to admit of their success in' the

chief-arsenals in India against several native
regiments. At Beuares, even with the aid of
irregulars and a Sikh regiment, the mutineers
were beaten off and driven towards Delhi by a
company of artillery and a handful of the Queen's

there was an European force the superiority of

dered to appear on parade without their arms.
Some companies obeyed and did so, but others
refused to give up their arms, and commenced
firing upon their officers. This appeared to be
the signal, for.the rest. of the regiments then ran
to the piles of arms; the guns however began to
pour in the grape so sharply upon them, that
they were glad to beat a retreat; only a few of
of the most determined rebels still kept up a fire
from the right wing at the officers. The Sikh
regiment all the time remained quiet on parade,
passive spectators of the scene, but at this crisis
they loaded, by order of Col. Gordon. An omin
ous change then came over them. , The cavalry
first turned, and then the Sikhs poured in a
deliberate volley on the officers standing round,
three of whom fell. The artillery in return gave
them a shower of grape, which sent them flying
off the parade.
" About one hundred of the mutineers were
killed, and two hundred weunded ; the rest, bolt
ed throwing down their arms. The mutineers of
the Sikh regiment tried to capture the guns, but
were thrice repulsed with great loss Only a
'few men of the irregular enevalry and Sikh regi
ment stood firm ; all the rest mutinied ; their
discomfiture was complete, thanks to the bravery
of one hundred and eighty European soldiers
who defended the guns, and charged and shot
down the mutineers. Eight only instead of thir
ty-five, as reported, of these brave soldiers were
killed and wounded. The lives of the oiviliana and
their fa,miliere who fled token refuse in she Chinee
tore cutchery, were saved by the presence and no
ble exertions of Soorat Singh, a Sikh prisoner. Rd
it was who went among the Sikh's of the treas
ury guard and prevented them from rising after
they had heard how the men of their corps had
been cut up, and by his influence they were kept
at their post until the next morning, when the
treasure was removed to cantonments, under an
escort of Europeans. The portion of the Sikh
corps over the treasury remain staunch."
The following are the stations, at which the
women and children of Europeans anti Americans
have fallen into the hands of the soldiery, and it
is better to draw a veil over the barbarities they
endured from these merciless fiends: Meerut,
Delhi, Ferozepore, Allyghur, Roorkee, Murdaun,

GEORGE ORME, in the:7sth year of his age.
The deceased was,lor more than twenty-five
years, a consistent and highly esteemed, member
of the Fairmount Presbyterian church. His suf
ferings were protracted, ` and at times very severe,
but he bore them with Christian patience and
submission. No man in the community was more
highly respected and esteemed, as was evinced by
the immense concourse of people who attended his
funeral. The church, of which be was so long a
+member, will greatly` feel his loss. He has left a
wife and several children to mourn their lobs, but
they mourn not as those who have no hope."

CLARKE, wife of Dr. E. C. Clarke, of the above
Mrs. Clarke was born at Mount Dallas, near
Bedford, Bedford County, Pa , and was, a gradu
ate of Steubenville Female Seminary, daring her
stay in which she united .with the Church of
Christ, in her fifteenth year. She died young, not
having quite finished her thirty-third year. But
she did not live; by any means, in vain. She was
the mother of six children of, the Covenant, who,
it is hoped, though they are all young, may live
to obey her living instructions, and dying coun
sels, She was an active member of, the Presby
terian church, of Circleville; and much did she
do to sustain the churel:yand aid in, erecting their
present house of worship.- Her's was a triumph
ant death ; not extatic but triumphant. Her de
cline was long; and for a time she Walked in dark
ness, arid was in fear of death. But God showed
his faithfulness; and when death came, leaning
on' Jesus she met the grim King in all calmness
and peace. Her stricken, but believing husband,

DIED—In Marengo, Illinois, on the 27th of. July,
1857, Ma. WILLIAM M. REEDY, aged,B6 years.
Mr. Reedy , was a native of Pennsalvania. He
moved to Illinois a little over two years ago., He
had been 'a member of the Presbyterian . Church
twenty one years, part of the time a Ruling Elder.
The last eight years of his life were spent in the
labors of EL Colporteur. At first, in the service of
the American Tract Society, and afterwards of
the Presbyterian Board of Publication, he distrib
uted between five and six thousand dollars worth
of books. "His works de follow him." He
leaves a wife and, seven very interesting little
boys, together with the Church, the Board, and
many friends, to mourn his loss. W.P.C.

DIND-At his residence, in Moon Township,
Allegheny County, on the 26th of June, JOHN A.
NESBIT, Esq , aged 53 years.
He had been a Ruling Elder in the church of
Montours, for several years, where his venerable
and pious father filled the same office. During
the last year,•he felt it his duty to change his loca
tion within the bounds of Sharon congregation; but
before the time came round for the removal of his
family, disease had become deeply seated, so that
when ids change of place occurred, he wasema
ciatedt ad duly left bie new home a few tieseed
- • I -I,) i• ,
till he was called to linger out the wearisome
days and nights that preceded his decease. Thus,
in the mysterious providence of God, his expecta
tions were shortened, and the usefulness antici
pated from him, in his new sphere, was unex
pectedly brought to a close—hie wife left to
mourn, and his sons and daughters left without
an excellent earthly father. He was aware, for
some time before his departure, that his disease
was incurable ; and said, with emphasis, 46 Let
the will of God be done." Knowing the possibil
ity of being deceived in his hopes, he desired a
brighter evidence of acceptance, and before his
death, obtained it, with a composure of mind
which enabled him to depart without fear, in ex
pectation of a glorious immortality. S.C.J.

the 31st of July, Mae. MARIA J. MoCAur-
Nur, consort of Rev. W. D. McCartney, in the 44th
year of her age. '
Her disease was somewhat complicated, but
chronic diarrhoea was the, chief cause of her dis
solution. The deceased was a native of Wash.
ington County, Pa. She united with the Presby 7
tenon church of Claysville, Wasaington Co., Pa.,
some time in 1829 or 1830. She loved the doc
trines and policy of the. Presbyterian Church, and
took a , deep interest in the advancement ; of all
her benevolent schemes. Her piety was modest
and retiring; sbe had her lights and her shades
during her phristian pilgrimage, but her end was
joy and peace;'she departed trusting In the
merits of her Saviour, whom she esteemed as
" The chiefest among ten thousand, and one
altogether lovely." She has left a heart" stricken
