As an eminent Divine, a powerful and attrac
tive preacher, a great master of style, a close
and vigorous thinker, and a prolific author, Dr.
Harris was unsurpassed by any of his brethren
among the English Dissenters. His numerous
publications were as acceptable to the members
of the Establishments of Great Britain and Ire
land, as they were among the Congregational
body with which he was connected.. The Dis
courses contained in this volume are a portion of
those delivered on various special occasions dur
ing the period of their lamented author's highest
reputation'as a preacher. We are glad to find
that at least three other volumes of the writings
which Dr. Harris left behind him, are yet to be
published, including a treatise on Natural and
Revealed 'Religion.

At the time of the delivery of this oration, it
was published by several of the leading Philadel
phia. papers: so that the public had abundant op
portunity of judging as to its high merits as a
literary and classic performance. We are glad
to see, it Issued in the present form. TO many it
will bea valuable memento, not only of the great
lamented dead, but also of the , spontaneous grat
itude and respect of an appreciating cominutity,
that sorrowed because of his early removal.
TFIE TVEsnriforEn REVIEW. July, 1857. New
York : Leonard Scott Co.
One of the most remarkable papers this
number is devoted to the " Manifest Destiny " of
the United States. According to the writer, this
country is passing through a revolutionary crisis
as decidedly as when the tea was cast into the
harbor of Boston. The abolition party are the
especial favorites of this 'writer. The late work of
Hugh Miller, on the Testimony of the Rocks is the
most savagely handled, in a brief review, the
object of the, writer being not so much to assail
the man himself, as to show that he was en
gaged, and that he 'mew himself to be engaged,
in a hopeless effort of reconciling the testimony.
of Moses in the Word of God, and the testimony
of nature , in the earth that God has made. The
article is one of tne most determined indirect as
&lulls on Revelation which we have eeen. The
Theological department of the paper on. Con
temporary Literature is, as usual, equally hostile
to Revelation.,

Where you can get your conscience eased;
Call and see us, when you 're passing,

Which you can have on cash condition;
Come one, come all, this very week."

For the Presbyterian Banner and advocate.
New Presbytery of Lake Superior.
Very many must be interested to hear of
the organization of a Presbytery in so im
portant a field, on the extreme Northern
frontier of our Union. Missionaries and
ministers of our Church have been laboring
lonely and single-handed' ever since 1853.
Churches have been established, and are
growing up under their teachings and their
care. Houses of worship have been built,
and others are in progress of erection, to
meet the wants of this growing region. And
now the laborers and friends have the satis-
faction of finding them gathered into a
Presbytery in full connexion with, and un-
der, the care of the General Assembly.
This is the earliest Ecclesiastical Judi:
catory organized in the Mining Region, or
round the shores of Lake Superior.
The trie.mbers convened, accordinc , to the
appointment of the General Assembly, in the
First Presbyterian church of Ontonagon, on
Wednesday, 19th inst. The opening ser
mon was preached, and the Constituting
prayer was offered, by the Rent. J. M. Bar
nett, of Superior, Wisconsin. The Presby
tery was organized in the connexion of the
Synod of Wisconsin. After baying chosen
Rev. T.'R Elden, of Bayfield, Wisconsin,
to act as Temporary Clerk, the permanent
organization of the Presbytery was perfected,
by electing Rev. J. Irwin Smith, of Onton
agon, Moderator, and Rev. J. M. Barnett,
Temporary and Stated Clerk.
The following paper was then offered by
Rev. J. M. Barnett, and unanimously
adopted by the Presbytery, and its adoption
followed by a delightful season of devotional
-exercise . .

The Rules for Judicatories were adopted,
the usual business of Presbytery transacted,
and Presbytery adjourned to hold a session
at Hayfield, at the call of the Mod,
erator, and its regular meeting in the lec
ture room of the First. Presbyterian , church
of Superior, on the evening of the first Fri
day in June, 1855: -
J. Irwin Smith and T. R ,Elder, minis•
ters, and J. Harvey Nourse, Ruling Elder,
were ap. Pilate(' an Executive Committee on
Missions, for the Presbytery, to whom
communications respecting the cause in this
field may be addressed.
In accordance witi. the provisions for or.
ganization, the Presbytery defined the fol
lowing boundaries,. subject to approval by
the next General Assembly:—Line begin
ning at the St. Mary's river, on the forty
sixth parallf I of North latitude, and follow
ing that line Westward to the sixteen h men
ditto ; thence North ward upon that meridian
to the boundary of the United States; and
thence Eastward along that boundary till it
enters Lake Superior. J.I.S.
Ontonagon, August 25, 1857.
An Impressive Fact.
A vessel was overtaken wi!b terrific hur in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.
After the most astonishing r fforts to weather
the storm, the awful batel igenee of the cap
tain broke on the ear of the passengers,
" The ship is on her beam•ends; she will
never right again; death is certain I"
" Nut at all, sir l not at all, sir !" ex
claimed a little sailor boy; " God will save
us yet.."
" Why do you think so?" said the cap.
taro, with strong feeling and astonishment.
" Because, sir, at this moment they, are
praying under the Bethel flag, in the city
of Glasgow, for,all sailors in distress, and us
among the rest; and God will hear their
prayers; now see 91 he, don't,."
The captain, an old weather•beaten tar,
exclaimed, with the tears running down his
cheeks, " God grant that their prayers may
be heard in our behalf, my little preacher !"
At that moment a great wave struck the
ship and righted her. A simultaneous shout
of exultation, gratitude, and praise, louder
than the storm, went up to God . A 'few
days after, the noble ship rode safely into
New York harbor.
The Uttalcer's Gift.
A brother writes me that when he was a
youth, his father said to him one day,
" Levi, can you make up your mind to
live at home and be :a farmer?"
"I would rather be a tanner than a far.
mer," replied Levi.
" Very well," responded his father, who
was willing to let Levi follow his own tastes,
as he was now seventeen years old; Very
well, my son, I will try and find a place for
Very shortly after, a place was found for
Master Levi, with a good Quaker. When
the youth presented himself at the tannery,
the honest Quaker said :
gg Levi, if thee will be a good boy, I will
do well by thee; if not, [ will send thee
home again. All the bargain I will make
by thee is, that thee shall do as wall by me
as I do by thee "
41 Very well sir," said Levi, "I will try
what I can do "
Levi now went to work with a hearty
good will. He worked bard, read his Bible,
was steady, honest,,and good natured. The
Quaker liked him. He liked the Quaker.
Hence the Quaker was satisfied, Levi was
happy, and the years of his apprenticeship
passed pleasantly away.
Just before Levi became of age, his mas
ter said to him
"Levi, I think of malting thee a nice
present when tby time is out."
Levi smiled pleasantly at this scrap of
news, and said, ":I shall be very happy to
receive any gift you way please; to make me,
Then the Quaker looked knowingly at
Levi and added, " I cannot tell thee, now
what the present is to be, but it shall be
worth: more than a thousand dollars to
"More than a thousand dollars ?" said
Levi to himself, his eyes spadding at the
bare thought of such a costly gift! " What
can it be ? I wonder if he means to offer
me his daughter for a wife? That can't be,
because I have heard it said that a good
wife is better than ten or twenty thousand
dollars. No, it can't be his daughter. But
what can it be ?"
That was the puzzling question which
buzzed about like a bee in Levi's brain, from
that time until the day before he was of
age. On that day, the Quaker said to hint :
" Levi, thy time is out tomorrow; but I
will take thee and thy present home to•day."
Levi breathed freely on bearing these
words. Dressing himself in his best suit, be
soon joined the Quaker, but could see nothing
that looked like a gift worth over a thousand
'dollars. He puzzled himself about it all
the way, and said to himself, "Perhaps the
Quaker has forgotten it."
At last they reached Levi's home. After
he bad been greeted by his friends, the
Quaker turned to him and said :
" - will give thy. present to thy
" As you please, sir," replied Levi, now
on the very tiptoe of expectation.
Well,' said the Quaker, speaking to
Levi's father, "your son is the best boy I
have ever bad." Then turning to Levi, be
added, " This is thy present, Levi—A GOOD
Levi blushed; perhaps be felt a little dis
appointed because his golden visions were
thus so suddenly spirited away. But his
sensible father was delighted, and said to
the Quaker, who was smiling a little wag
gishly: ,
" Would rather heir you say that of my
son, sir, than to see you give him all the

The Wheat midge.
Moottn:—Your correspoi,dent, J.
H. 15., is mistaken in his' views of the uni
versality .f the means by 'which the midge
(weevil) can propagate "itself. That it at
tacks late sown barley and rye, is true,-in
measure; 'but its natural' pabulum is the
wheat kernel. Winter barley almost
entirely escapes the ravages of this insect, as
does Winter rye, being much more forward
than Spring sown, especially yin wet seasons.
The insect found in the mullein,- is an
entirely different variety, only like in color
anti size: It is lively, active creature,
having six legs, white the..larvm of the
weevil is a maggot, with none. Lean hard
ly conceive that an insect the eighth of an
inch long, could sustain itself cu a seed, not
one twentieth of an inch in diameter, as is
fed clover.
The experience of the Eastern farmers
establishes the fact, that the entire suspeu•
sion of raising wheat in large districts,
almost entirely atiiiihilates the pest, and
they can again raise wheat with as much
success as the climate and soil will allow.
Prom some effect of the seasons of '55 and
'56, there was a great dimunition of the
wheat midge, and those farmers who had the
temerity to sow under the discouraging cir
cumstances of . foimer sears, had fair average
crops; which induced an increased seeding
for this, year, and results in almost a rota:i
failure, and will greatly discourage its repe
tition this Fall. It is possible that some of
the occult operations of the season may
greatly decrease their numbers, and that
the wheat crop may prove remunerative;
but it is rather a forlorn hope. H. Y.
A new Xode of Preserving Green Corn
Has recently been invented by Mr. Stephen
Culver, of Newark, N Y. His process is to
cut or split the ear longitudinally, by means
of : a suitable apparatus, into halves or smaller
divisions, and to dry cob and all. It is said
that the labor of preparing for drying is but
a trifle—and the corn, being dried on the
cob without boilieg or extraction of pith,
takes up during the operation a large pro
portion of the saaeharine and other nutri
tious elements. As soon as the cob is laid
open, it curves inwardly and separates the
kernels from each other, so that by the ex
posure of the ioternal part of the cob and
the separated kerne.s to the air, the drying
is effected with greater facility than by any
other mode yet made public. Mr. C. has
applied for a patent for this process, and
also for a cheap' and simple machine for
laying open the ears of corn.
Gathering Fruit
Much fruit is injured every season, and
its value lessened by carelessness io gather
ing Fruit carefully gathered by hand will
not only keep longer, but as it looks much
better than when bruised by rough handling,
will always sell more readily and at a hieher
price. A little care and neatness in select
ing and putting up fruit for market is by no
means labor lust. Any one, will pay more
for a neatly arranged basket of fruit than
for the same carelessly thrown together. A
few decaying specimens will not only injure
the sale, but often really injures and some
times destroys the whole.
Ripening Pears.
Those who are growing pears should re
member th , t all varieties are much better
for being picked three or four days before
they become ripe. , When fit for picking,
the fruit will be swollen and the skin smooth
and glossy, and on taking it in the hand
and raising it up, it will separate readily
from the tree. The pears should be placed
on a shelf or in a diawer, in the house, and
will ripen finely. By keeping them in a
cool place the ripening may be retarded.
Washing Fine Woojen and Muslin Ar-
The gall of oxen and cows, has been used
from time immemorial, for removing grease
and dirt, from fine woolen goods of delicate
colors. Its action is the same as soap in re
moving the, grease, while it is almost inert
regarding the colors. In the hands of
skillful persons, however, soap is just as
safe; and is more pleasant to use, because
the gall has an offensive odor. To use the
gall, it should be mixed with , just as much water as will allow the woolen article
to be squeezed and handled. freely. It re
quires considerable handling of the article
in the liquid before the gall aetwthorou g hly.
After the dirt and grease are removed, the
dress, shawl, or whatever it may , be that is
washed in it, should be thoroughly rinsed in
clean, soft water. It will take three or fem.
fresh supplies of water to remove all traces
of the gall from the, goods, and none must
be left in, on, account'of its offensive smell.
This is a very safe process of washing
fine woolen articles. of light green, blue,
and various other delicate colors. Chil
dren's dresses, of floe merino cloth, may
be •safely washed in this manner. One
gall will suffice for a small dress. Another
plan, and a better one for washing fine ar
ticles of dress, is to dissolve some fine soap
in hot water, and allow it to become quite
cold, then wash the article in this, takinF
care not to rub it violently. The soap suds
should be quite strong, or the soap will be
decomposed bir the'grease 'in 'the article to
be washed. The suds must be thoroughly
rinsed uut of the articles in cold, soft water.
Scented 'soap is the best to use for such
delicate operations, because it imparts an
agreeable perfume to the article of dress
Another process for washing fine muslins
of delicate colors, is to take some wheat
bran—about two quarts for a lady's dress—
and boil it fur half an hour in some soft
water, 'then' allow it to cool, strain the
liquor, and use it as a substitute for soap.

Taught to Fight.
Casey, a murderer who was executed at
San Francisco a short.time ago, just before
the rope was put round• his neck, made a
short and broken speech, in which he traced
back his crime to its fountain-head. "Gen•
tiemen," he said, "I am no murderer. My
fduAi are !lYTibluse dearly education. Where
I belonged, I was taught to fight, and that
to resent my own wrong was, my province.
I have an aged mother; and let her not
hear me called a murderer or assassin. I
have always resented a wrong, and have
done so now.
"Oh my poor mother, my poor mother;
how her heart will bleed at this news ! I
but resented an injury; my poor mother.
This wring her heart. Oh God, have
mercy upon me. My Jesus, take care of me.
0 God, with the accumulated guilt of twen
ty eight or twenty.nine years, have mercy
upon me. My poor mother !"
The hot passions of the boy, as you see,
had Dever been bridled.; He was suffered
to fight out an angry spirit, like the wild
beasts of the forest. Tt is a mistake to call
this manliness it is brutality; it is a thirst
for blood. True manliness checks personal
resentments; it is temperate and forbearing;
if wrongs are to be righted, they are to be
righted not by personal violence, which
would turn the world into a den of tigers,
but by reason, by just and sober views; often
by fOrgiving and forgetting many things
which cannot be helped or atoned for.
" The patient in spirit is better than the
proud ie spirit." "'An angry man stirreth
up strife, and a furious man aboundeth in
