History of Jefferson College.
DR. MCKINNEY :—Allow a constant
reader to express the gratification with which
he has read Dr. Smith's recent work, " The
History of Jefferson College." The diligent
and patient research which the author has
applied to his subject, must prove eminently
satisfactory to the numerous Alumni and
friends of that institution; while at the
same time there is one commendable feature
of the work which will render it acceptable
and useful to the Christian public generally.
I refer particularly to the large space he
has appropriated to biographical sketches.
The late Dr. Alexander in writing the
history of the celebrated Log College,
which exerted so decided an influence upon
our Church, at an early period, occupied no
less than four•fifths of the work with biogra
phy. Dr. Smith, also, rightly judging that
the history of Canonsburg College could
not be given seperate from the history of
those pious and eminent men who were
concerned in its origin and administra
tion, has devoted a large portion of his
work to sketches of their lives. In this
way he has rendered the book interesting
and profitable to all branches of the Presby
terian Church, and to the Christian public
at large. CHOREPISCOPUS.
- DR. WEINNEr :—lt is a well•known '
principle, that what affects vital godliness
and the spread of true religion in connexion
with one branch of the household of faith,
is felt more or less distinctly by all. Hence
different branches of the kingdom of Christ
feel a deep interest in all that transpires,
in sister communions, touching the great
cause for which we each, in our separate
fields, are laboring. All evangelical Churches
have been watching with intense feeling,
for years past, the movements in the Epis
copal Church of England and of America,
and many earnest prayers have ascended to
God in behalf of the evangelical portion of
that e,ommunion—prayers, too, unread from
the prayer-book. And we trust that this
interest may never flag; for that will be a
dark day to the world when the children of
God are only solicitous for the cause of
evangelism as it may be connected with
their own particular communion. This
consideration may serve as an introduction
of what follows, to the notice of the readers
of the Banner and Advocate.
The present Bishop of Illinois, the Rt. Rev
Dr. Whitehouse, was chosen to this position
some two or three years two, but has never yet "
taken up his abode among the people of his
charge, and continues still to reside in the
city of New, York. At his election, the
Bishop asked that a magnificent metropoli- I
tan church and Bishop's residence be erect
ed in Chicago, and proposed himself to loan
some $20,000 or 630,000 of his • private
funds for the purpose. The members of
that communion, however, felt unable to
comply with this request, And the Bishop,
declining to reside West until his request
was granted, is still a resident of New York.
But this is not all. During his annual
visits, a part of his duty is to consecrate
houses of religious worship; and we have
been informed that he has hitherto refused
to consecrate until the property is made over
by deed, in trust, to him and to his succes
sors in office. At two different places, in
one county, he made his demand, and suc
ceeded in one of them, after contending
from 10 o'clock A. M., at which hour the
consecration was to take place, until dark;
in the other he did not succeed, and the
church is yet unconsecrated. So far as I
can learn, these things are rendering the
Bishop very unpopular with the evangelical
portion of his Church. He has been re
garded as sound in the faith—by no means
ultra high Church ; but if he continues to en
force the last of the above-named demands, he
will be regarded as taking almost as high
ground as Archbishop Hughes himself. The
course of Bishop Whitehouse, both in re
fusing to reside among his people, and in
claiming the right to hold in his own name
all the property of the Church, will, I ap
prehend, greatly injure his influence in, if
not seriously distract, his denomination here.
The difficulties at Knox Colloge are, for
the present at least, arranged. President
Blanchard has been requested to act in his
old capacity, though, as we learn from some
of the papers, "only until the Trustees can
find another." lam inclined, however, to
doubt this last statement, inasmuch as I find
Mr. Blanchard has accepted, and the Col
lege is about to enter on another year under
A recent issue of the Congregational Her
ald, has the following: "The New York
Evangelist and Puritan Recorder, have lately
said that Congregationalism has made no
progress in New York for the last ten years;
and now, the ,last number of the lndepend
ent replies, by showing, that within the last
eight years the New School Presbyterians
have had a net loss of two churches and
nine hundred and two members." The
Herald judiciously remarks upon the above,
"if these things are true, there is other
work, surely, for those two denominations to
perform, than to envy and vex one another.
Unless other denominations have done more
than they, what is to become of the, great
metropolis of the nation ?"
Beloit College is in the field, asking aid
from New School Presbyterian and Congre
gaional churches, to the amount of 830,000,
to set it upon a 'firm basis. The Herald,
the organ of Congregationalism, in explaining
an extract from its columns, given in one of
my previous letters, touching this Institu
tion, says : " We did not mean to intimate
a wish to have the College become sectarian,
but rather to have the present arrangement
made unquestionably permanent. Knox Col
lege has been understood to be on the Union
plan, and yet the New School Presbyterians
are now claiming it, as belonging to them.
Beloit College was established with the same
understanding, yet some have had fears, lest
there was no certainty against a similar see•
tarian coup de etat being attempted in that
case also, especially as one of its Trustees is,
somewhat inconsistently, Trustee, also, in
the rival sectarian Institution recently es
tablished at Like Forest, on the same field.
As Congregationalists who have contributed
to Knox College feel agrieved by the Pres.
byterian movement there, we wished to
draw out assurances from Beloit, to remove
apprehensions in that quarter."
Oar Associate Reformed brethren have a
young College at Monmouth, 111., which is
just getting under way, with a full corps of
teachers. Rev. D. A. Wallace, President,
has a good reputation as a teacher and earn
est worker. May the God of all wisdom
give them the ability to train the youth
brought under their influence in the princi
ples of a sound Scriptural philosophy. Pres

are to be laid, upon which the future pros

ure, rest. , ,

THE PRESBYTERIAN BANNER AND ADVOCATE.
" Is the Seminary to be placed under the
co ttrol of the Assembly ?" There can be,
I think, but little doubt, that it will be,
evengualls. It has been thought unwise
hitherto, to discuss the question. It must
in due time, come up, and be thoroughly in
vestigated. There can be no doubt as to the
fact of the superior popularity, both East
and West, of those Seminaries under the
control of the Assembly. The Synods en
gaged in this enterprise, will, no doubt, act
wisely when the question comes before them.

The Agricultural. Fair.
In our advertising columns may be found a
notice of the approaching Fair, of the Agricul
tural Society of Allegheny County. Such exhi
bitions, we consider as highly beneficial. The im
proprieties which are, some times, attendant
should be frowned upon and banished, and the
exhibition be nade to accomplish its great design,
consistently with good morals. To this end good
men must be concerned, and do their proper part.
Of one feature occasionally exhibited, we en
tirely disapprove; that is, the trial of the speed
of horses—horse•racing. This is not presented in
the advertisement before us ; but there is an
other thing equally bad; that is, the exhibition
of Lady Equestrians. Such an exhibition we re
gard as shameful. As sometimes practised, it is
disgusting. Though the course may be open
each afternoon, we wish that there may be no
lady equestrians to enter it. We are decidedly
favorable to female horse-back exercise. We love
to sce ladies ride, and ride well; but , not to ex
hibit themselves as a show. Modesty forbids it.

ger The greatest preservation of beauty
known to modern science, is Professor Wood's
Hair Restokative and Cosmetic. Amongthe most
important features of female beauty, are a luxu
riant head of hair and a - fine complexion both
of which should be guarded as Stared fret:Sum,
for either may be lost by neglect, or preserved by
the use of the above named article; delay is dan
gerous. We seldom undertake, editorially, to in.
dorse what are called " Hair Restoratives," as
knowing full well that the great majority of such
preparations aro entirely worthless. Exceptions
there are, nevertheless, and among these we have
never hesitated to express our conviction that
the article known as , 4 Wood's Hair Restorative,"
is entitled to a proud pre eminence. This article
has told its own story in numberless instances of
prematurely gray and bald heads, and the cer
tificates in regard to its amazing efficacy have
been alike numerous, unsolicited, and emphatic.
When Smartt - firs of the United States and others,
(of the highest standing socially and politically)

By the Steamers Vanderbilt and' Asia, which
arrived at New York, we have European news to
the 22d of August.
The suffering and loss on the part of our Mis
sionaries are much greater than we stated last
week; but there is still an indefinitness in the
reports, owing to the interruption of the mails in
India. The capture of Cawnpore by the insur
gents is confirmed, as also .the consequent mas-
Imre of the European inhabitants. There had
been several contests between the revolters and
the British troops, in all of which the latter were
victors. But there have been no decisive opera
tions. The troops which had departed from
England for Canton had been intercepted and
were landing at Calcutta; but still, they were
too few in numbers to effect much, except when
acting on the defensive. Delhi still held out,
and all the native troops in Oude had revolted.
The complication of Indian affairs began to excite
alarm in England. Vigorous debates had taken
place in Parliament, and the rapid drain of men
and vessels for India was regarded as a means of
weakening the country of its defences.
DIE Tnns tl'H.—Up to the 22d, the Directors
had not decided upon the practicability of mak
log another attempt to lay the cable this season.
A conference, however, had been held in London
between the Directors of the Company and the
commanding officers of the ships composing the
Telegraphic Expedition. The results of this con
ference appear to have been eminently satisfac
tory. They unanimously expressed the opinion
that no form of submarine telegraph could be de
vised more suitable to the object intended to be
accomplished. They also stated that no, natural
obstacle exists to prevent the laying of the cable.
The only censurable part of the arrangements
appears. to be the construction of the brakes in
tended to control the cable. These, in their pres
ent condition are pronunced unsuitable, and
they will probably be modified. The officers in
clined to the belief that an attempt , to lay the
cable in the months of October and November
would be successful. A correspondent of the Lon
don Times broaches a novel idea—that the mam-.
moth shin Great Eastern, which could with ease
contain the entire cable, be employed in place of
any other vessel. A letter from Mr. Cyrus W.
Field, addressed to his family in New York City,
speaks hopefully of this enterprise. '
Tan An-once BILL.—The so called Divorce and
Matrimonial Causes Bill was read a third time
and passed in the House of Commons on the even
ing of the 21st. It now goes back to the Lords
for concurrence. The clauses so objectionable to
the clergy of the Church of England were so mod
ifiied by ministerial consent as to be equivalent
almost to a "surrender"'by the government.
Just before the bill passed, Lord J . : Manners made
a last protest against the bill on the ground of
principle, on account of many of its provisions.
Lord Palmerston thought it was a very great
imprevement of the law ; but he avowed that he
never gave a more reluctant consent to any thing
than to the clause of concession to the scruples of
certain of the clergy.
So far as the clergy are concerned there, the
bill as it stands enacts that , after the lapse •of
the period allowed for appeal, and supposing
the decree of dissolution to stand fast, "it shall
be lawful for the respective parties to the mar
riage to marry again, as if the prior marriage
had been dissolved by death," provided that " no
clergyman in holy orders of the United Church
of. England or Ireland shall be compelled to
solemnize marriage of any person whose former
marriage may have been dissolved on the
ground of his or her adultery; or be liable to any
suit, penalty or censure for solemnizing or re
fusing to solemnize the marriage of any such
Pawn Consonr.—As is well known,. Prince
Albert, before he lately received the title of
" Prince Consort," had the precedence over all
the members of the royal family, the Queen ex
cepted. The last named title was given him to
place him on the same rank with members of
reigning families on the continent. Louis Phil
ippe had vainly interfered among the sovereigns
of Europe to induce them to give Prince Albert
the title of Royal Highness. Sons and brothers
of kings only have in Europe the precedence over
With regard to prospects in Paris, all that can
be said is, that the principal houses continue day
by day to write that better times are at hand, and
that with equal pertinacity the quotations of the
Bourse contradict all their anticipations. The
monetary condition of France, at this moment, is
obviously analogous to that which followed the
railway mania in England; and when 'it is con
sidered that the prevailing difficulties have not
been arrested by the most magnificent harvest
ever gathered, it is easy to, conceive what must
have been the jeopardy when that point was in
uncertainty. 'lt is-probable a considerabletime
must yet elapse before the trade of the country
will return to its natural balance.

The rumor that the Russian GoVerninent does
not intend to remain an idle speotator of the
events in China proves to be correct. That Gov
ernment, as we learn from a letter of the 10th

active part in those events when an opportunity
offers; To give greater weight to the Russian
representive, it is proposed to send a flotilla to

hand, letters from Constantinople state that the
Russians have recently suffered great losses in
men, ammunitions and places. The mails.-evi
dently speak of two different affairs. It is very
difficult to know the truth, as the Russians give
extensive bulletins of their Successes, and remain
silent on their defeats. But - the news from Tur

W. W.umaats, in the 12th year of his age.
George was indeed a remarkable boy—re
markable for his love of truth and for his obe
dience to his mother. Young, as he was, he
knew the Saviour, and died, triumphing in the
faith. He delighted in the study of the Bible and
the Catechism, and was always careful to remem
ber the Sabbath day to keep it holy. An account
of his remarkable statements as to his own re
ligious experience, and of his exhortations to his
weeping friends, when on his death-bed, would be
too long for this paper, but will be turned into an
article for the Columns of the . Sabbath Sahool.Vis

Dian—At her residence, in Rural Valley, Arm
strong County, Pa., August 6th, Mrs. MATILDA
CASED; in the 44th year of her age.
Mrs. Casedy was long reminded before her de
parture, by the inroads of disease, that death
was approaching. At one time, during the pro
gress of her disease, she expressed a desire to be
spared a little longer, if it was the Lord's
with, her family, who needed her Christian coun
sel and instruction. I3utibefore the "silver cord,
was loosed," she expressed entire resignation to
the will of God. She was willing to die, and to
give up all those objects for which she expressed
at one time a wish to live; and " to depart and
be with Christ, which is far better." She had
been for a number of years a member of the
Presbyterian 'church of Rural Valley. Her de
parture was one of peace. "Blessed are the
dead which die in the Lord."
Dam—On the 7th inst., at the house of his
father, Alexander M'Coy, Indians. County, Pa.,
JonN M'Cor, aged 22 years and 10 months.
His early years gave promise of great useful
ness. He was a diligent student, and was
pleased with the prospect of being engaged in
the ministry of the Gospel, for which he was pre
paring himself, when he was cut down by a pro
tracted and painful disease. Two years .ago he
applied, with his older brother, for membership
in the Harmony Presbyterian church, under the
care of Rev. J. H. Kirkpatrick, and was received
by the Session with great cordiality. During his
illness he manifested Christian resignation, and
spent much of his time in prayer and praise, and
reading the Scriptures; frequently retiring to the
woods, or some unoccupied room, for this pur
pose. His end was sudden, yet peaceful. :Oa
the morning of his being seized with a fatal at.
tick of his disease, some of his friendg followed
I to the woods, afraid from some indications
I hat he might need their help. They found him
• ngaged, as usual, in devotion ; and be directed
• heir attention to the 445th hymn, describing it
i s most beautiful, and expressive of his feelings.
'!he last verse of this hymn is :
"Ood is our Sun, whose daily light
Our joy and safety brings;
Our feeble mesh lies safe at night,
Beneath his spreading wings."
His friends mourn, but not as those who have
hope, and his example and experience, testify
1., his brothers and sisters of the value of
in, and recommend it to their acceptance.

01 she became a member of the last named
cittlrch, but, through age and infirmities, it was
not her privilege, at her new home, to sit down
with the people of God, to celebrate a Saviour's
dying love. She was a woman who passed

V.es, but not his ; ' tie death itself there dies."
1 fe was beginning to unfold itself to him in
brithtness and promise. The prospect of an
hot sable and useful future was surely his. Few
yol ; eg men of his age had warmer friends, and
Inc( e numerous admirers. Everything combined
war s calculated to attach him to the present life.
13U! in the flush of early manhood the fell de.
strt ler, consumption, marked him for its victim.
,ThiMgh it is hard at such a time of life to lie
(lava arid die, yet, with Christian resignation,' he
submitted to the will of his Heavenly Father.
As his hopes for this life, dear as they . were,
ad from before him, he was cheered with that
bet :er hope-which -is " an. anchor both sure. , and
stc, dfast, and which entereth into that within the

to !lie mansions of the blest.
" We weep, though not in bitterness,
Ours are not tears of gloom ;
No thoughts, but those of tenderness,
Shall glisten round his tomb ;
No painful, recollections rise--
His morn, it dawned so blest,
And, ere a cloud had dimmed, its skies,
God called his soul to rest." L.
