We trust the readers of the Banner arid
Advocate will not think this notice too long.
We feel indeed that it is all too short to
t . itrilt the worth of him to whom it refers.
It is well to knew what God has done for
his servants, and by them, that the Church
may give him the praise. What we have
written has been with this object in view.
Let us bless God for the fathers, and pray
him to raise up those who may as worthily
fill their pl ices, when these are called hence.
There is at present something of a dearth
of relieious news relating to our own Church.
Dr. Rice has announced, in the St. Louis
Prtskyreria.7l, of which he is the editor, his
neceptauce of the call to the North 'church,
Chicago. The paper is, as I before conjec
tured. to remain at St. Louis, to be placed
probably under charge of another editor.
Dr. Blanchard acts as President of Knox
College, by request of a committee of the
Board of Trustees, whose duty it is by the
charter, to fill vatanoies in the Faculty.
They can only appoint for one year. If the
13eard remains of the same complexion next
year that it now is, Mr. B. will again he
thrown out. We may not again have occa
sion to refer to the difficulty.
The time for meetings of Presbyteries
and Synods is again drawing near, when we
will expect to hear of what the Lord has
been doing for us in the last six months.
Would it not be well for all our people to
offer special petitions for the blessing of God
in the enlightening influences of the Spirit
to rest down upon the Judicatories of the
Church wherever they will meet? We have
not, like our Episcopalian brethren, set
forms of printed prayer for these particular
occasions, but may we not, as a Church,
unite with one heart and voice for wisdom
for Zion in her Couits ? If the fervent,
effectual prayer of a righteous man availeth
much, what might nut be done by the
hundreds of thousands in our Church uni

Mn. EI.ITOR.:—Y,m may find room in your

another house to the worship of toe true God.
This service took pleat! on Saturday, the 29th of
August, in connexion with the administration of
the Lord's Supper, on the Sabbath. The Rev.
S. C. McCune, Rev, D. V. Smock, and Rev. G.
M. Swan, in connexion with the pastor, took part
iu these services.
The building is a plain, substantial brick, thir

asvistance of some friends in the East, and vain

The membership of this church numbers about
forty, the most of whom are females. Consider

the hold may fill this house, as it did the ancient
tabernacle of Israel.

of over exertion in securing the completion of

the Pennsylvania, is so far advanced that the cars
are now crossing the Allegheny river. The first
locomotive passed over from the Allegheny Depot
to and from the Pittsburgh Depot on the 21st

Calamities at Sea.
The late storm on our South Eastern coast
has been exceedingly distruotive to sea-going
vessels. Several steamers have been seriously
But the greatest calamity is in the loss cf the
Central America, late the George Law. She sunk
on the 12th, about two miles off Cape . Hatteras.
She had on board five hundred and twenty five
passengers, and one hundred and one officers and
orew. Of all these, only a few over a 100 persons
were saved. Near $2,500,000 in treasure was
lost, as also the San Francisco and Havana
ACCOUNT OF THE WRECK BY A SURVIVOR.—STATE
KENT OP HENRY H. CHILDS.
SAVANNAH, Sept. IS.—Henry H. Childs, one of
the rescued passengers, states that the Central
America left Havana on the Bth inst., having
had delightful weather and a calm sea f.-om Aspin
wall to that port. On the afternoon of the day of
sailing from Havana we had a fresh breeze, and
on Wednesday it blew very strong. At , night it'
increased and rained in torrents. On Thursday
the wind blew a hurricane, and the sea ran very
high. On Friday the storm raged with unabated
fury, and at 11 o'clock A. Pd., it was first known
among the passengers that the steamer had
sprung a leak, and was making water fast.
A line of men was formed, who went *to work
in bailing the water from her engine room, the
fires having been already extinguished by the
furnaces being overflowed. We gained upon it eo
much that the firemen were enabled to get up
steam again. but this continued only for a few
minutes, when the fires were again extinguished
and the engines were abandoned. The bailing,
however was continued in all parts of the vessel,
and kept up until she finally went down. During
Friday night the water gained gradually, but all
being in good spirits, we worked to the best of
our ability, feeling that when morning came we
might possibly speak some vessel and be saved.
The fatal Saturday came at last, but brought
nothing but an increased fury of the storm.
Still we worked on. About two o'clock P. K.,
the storm lulled a little and the clouds broke
away, so that our hopes were renewed and we all
worked like giants. At 4 o'clock P. M., we spied
a sail and fired gnus. 0 T flag being at half mast
it was seen, and the brig Marine, of Boston, bore
down upon na. We then considered oar safety
certain. She came near and we spoke to her and
explained our condition. She laid too about a
mile distant, and we in only three of the boats,
saved, placed all the women and children, and
they were safely put on board the brig.
As evening was fast approaching, we discovered.
another sail, which responded to our call and
came near us. Capt. Herndon told our crippled
condition, and asked them to lay by and send a
boat, as we had none left. She promised to do
so, but this was the last we saw of her, except at
a distance which grew greater at every moment.
At seven o'clock we saw no possibility of keep-
ing afloat much longer, altbangh if we could do
'so until morning all would be saved in a short
time. A heavy sea for the het time broke over
her upper, deck,, and our hopes faded away. Life
preservers were then furnished to the passengers
and we sent up two rockets. A tremendous sea
I then swept over us, and the steamer in .a. moment
I think that some four hundred or four hundred
and fifty souls were launched upon the ocean, at
the mercy of the waves. The storm at this time
had entirely subsided. We all kept near together,
and went as the waves took us. There was no
thing, or very little said, except each one cheered,
and courage was kept up for two or three hours ;
and I think, for that space of time, none had
drowned. But those who could not swim became
eshaneted, and QM by- one gradually passed to
Thohnpe that boats would be sent to us from
the two vessels spoken to, eoon fled from us, and
our trust was alone in Providence ; and what bet
ter trust could you or I ask for? I saw'rny com
rades fast sinking, and at one o'clock that night
I was nearly alone, upon the ocean, some two
hundred miles from bind. I, however, heard
shouts from all that could do so. that they were
not far from me; but I could not see them.
Within an hour from this time, I saw a ieseel,
which I judged was about one mile from me.
Taking fresh courage, I struck out for the vessel,
and reached it when nearly exhausted, but was
drawn on board by ropes. It proved to be a Nor
wegian barque, from Belize, Honduras, bound
for Falmouth, England. I found on board of her
some three of Toy comrades, and at nine o'clock
the next morning we had forty-nine noble fellows
on board. And these are all I know of having
been saved. We cruised about the scene of the
disaster until we thought that all alive had. been
rescued and then set sail.
We found the barque short of provisions, and
the crew living on gruel. We had some tea
and coffee to refresh ourselves, and at noon on
Sunday, spoke this American barque (the Saxony)
bound for Savannah, who supplied us with provi
sions and took five of us on bosrd.

A letter writer, in China, states that the English
Plenipotentiary will insist on the opening of nine
ports, with the privilege of having a Consulate and
a guard of anldiers at five of these ports, and a
Consulate at the remaining four; he Will ktlBo de
mand a grant of land at each' for the erection of
forts. This is a pretty strong indication that
England intends to have some solid security for
the faithful observance of the treaty She is about
to dictate. We have no doubt of her ultimate
success in this matter. By latest accounts, Lord
Elgia was about to proceed with a fleet of gun
boats to tbe mouth of the Pei-ho, on which river
Pekin stands, and having arrived at the nearest
point to the capital, he would then give his Celes
tial Majesty an oppertnnity to recognize or repu
diate the acts of his officers at Canton. Our cor
respondent, writing from Shanghae, states that
the people at the North exhibit the utmost indif
ference about the war. This is important inform
ation, for it proves that the fight is a local one,
and is confined very much, on the Chinese side, to
Yeh and his Cantonese. that case the Empe
ror may be expected to yield, without any great
display of force, to the demands of the British
Representative, backed as they will be by the
French and American* Ministers, and the war, will
' be brought to a speedy and successful close.
Indta Waved by the Telegraph.
The news burst on India like a thunderclap,
that the native regiments at Meerut and Delhi
bad mutinied. murdered their officers, massacred
all the English inhabitants of Delhi, placed the
King of Delhi on the throne, and threatened the
empire. All this happened on the llth of May.
On the lath it was known by telegraph to Euro
peans only, throughout India—l say to Europeans
only, for immediately the post was stopped, and
an embargo placed on all native correspondence.
It is not too much to say, that the telegraph
saved India. Whether or not the report is true
that the 15th of May was the day fixed for. a
general rising of the Sepoy regiments and mas
sacre of all Europeans in the Bengal Presidency,
cannot be known yet—perhaps never will be
known. If true, and certainly the rumor ap
peared with strange coincidence at places far
apart, the Third Cavalry spoilt all by beginning
on the 11th at Delhi. In a moment the news
was fl tsbed to Lahore and Peshawar ' to Al

The Archbishop of Bruges, in his late work on
the Immaculate Conception, addresses to the Vir
gin a prayer in which these words occur "It is
from you and your Divine Son, 0 incomparable
mother, that I expect the fruits of my labors, and
to you alone it is that I will ascribe it;!" The
Obeervateur. Caiholique makes this observation to
the bishop; " You associate the action of the
blessed Virgin with that, of the God-Man; you
even give but the second rank to Jesus Christ as
source of the graces of whichlour book hartY be
ii the means;,.then you exclude him formally from
the motive which led you in your works. The
Holy Virgin is your sole end; it is to her
alone that you ascribe it. The necessary conse
quence of such a doctrine is that the Holy Virgin
is your God. Do' you think, Monseigneur, that
such exaggerations, which might be so energeti
cally characterized, honor the humble Virgin who
rejoiced in God her Saviour?"

DIED—At his residence, in St. •Olairsville. on
the ad inst., Hon. BENJAMIN RUGGL&S, in the Toth
year of his age.
The deceased was born in Abington, in the
State of Connecticut, on the 21st of Febrnary,
1788. His father died wheo he 'Vitas young, and
leaving his family poor, Benjamin had to support
and educate himself. :The , family, soon after, his
father's death, Moved - to Bolton, where he went
to the Brooklyn, Academy,' and' received a good
Academical education ; a knowledge of Latin and
Greek, and the various branches of English lit
erature. Hetaight . school in 'the Winter, and
went to the Aoademy in the Slimmer. He read
law with Judge Peters, in Hebron, was. admitted
to the Bar by the Court in the County of Holland,
and soon after came to the West and located at
Marietia, where he was succesefulin the, practice
of his profession. He was appointed President
Judge by the legislature in 1810, his circuit ex
tending.from Marietta to Cleveland. He held the
first Court that was ever held in Cleveland, when
there were only a few houses; along, the lake
shore.' In some of the counties of his district,
before there were any public buildings, he 'some
times. held Court among the trees, of this great
country, which was then an altilost unbroken
forest. He traveled on horseback, and lodged
many times in the little log cabins of that simple
and patriarchal age.
, He was next elected to the
United States Senate, for the term of six years.
He wae,triiee re-elected. - He was associated with.
Webster, Clay; Calhoun,'--Cass, -and 'Randolph.
Our departed frieriff'hail the confidence and love
of all parties w hil e , he was .there; and did most
faithfully and conscientiously perform his duty
to his country. In the circles Of Iprivate life he
was greatly beloved. Seldom, 'Weyer, have we
seen such a rich cluster of noble ivirtues adorn
ing the character of any man. He was remark
able for humility—yea, he seemed to be clothed
with it. His benevolence was a Constant stream,
at which many drank. and were iefreshed. He
gave liberally to the institutions of learning and
religion. A. firm believer in the great doctrines
of Christianity, he after quoted with a good rel
ish the words of Webster: " That infidels just
rung monotonous changes on the often refuted
arguments. But every lover of his country and
of his race, could not but wish and pray that the
benign influences of Christianity Vrere spread all
over the world." He was a man of prayer, and•
,very punctual in his attendance on the preaching
of the Gospel, and often "would `the tears roll
down his furrowed cheeks, when the minister was
expatiating on the "glorious Gospel of the blessed.
God." He was not one of the fashionable hear
ers of the present age; he was always present in
the afternoon, and at night too. He could say
truly, " I have loved the habitation of thy house.
and the place where thine honor dwelleth." "
was glad when they said unto me, let us go into
the house of the Lord."
He died suddenly, and unexpectedly to all his
friends. Sweetly, gently, and peacefully he took
his departure, with very little suffering to him
self, and very little trouble to, his friends. His
family have sustained a very great loss, and so
has the Church, and the whole community. His
'remains were followed to their long, home by a
very large multitude of People; ,and, his funeral
sermon was preached in the Presbyterian„oliurch,
'by Rear; John Moffat, to a great and Lsorroarfal
congregation, from Gen. xxv : 8; " Then Abra
ham gave up the ghost, and died in a good old
age, an old man, and full of years, and was
gathered to his people." J. M.
DIED—At her residence, near Altoona, Pa..
Septemberl2th, Mrs. NANCY HAMILTON, aged 76
The maiden name of the deceased was Smith.
She was the last of a large family, who, one after
another, have been gathered from among the
Church below, to the Church above. She lived to
a good pill age, and was blessed in being permit
ted to see all her own children hopefully pious.
Some of them are officers in the church of which
she was a member. Two of her nephews, Rev.
Joseph T. Smith, D. D., of Baltimore, and Rev.
James Smith, of Mount Joy, Pa., are in the min
istry. Almost the entire connexion are con
sistent Christians, and some of them were re
markable for their humble and unobtrusive, but
devoted piety, of which she was herself a bright
example. She lived a consistent life, and died a
hopeful death. Her loss is deeply mourned by
her friends and the church. Bat our loss is her
unspeakable gain. " Precious inihe sight of the
Lord is the death of his saints."
DTED—Of cancer, August 25th, at Woodville,
Allegheny County, Pa ,• Mrs. ELLEN SPAHR ' , wife
of Jesse Spahr, M. D., and daughter of the late
Chad Green, of Brook County, Virginia, in the
43d year of her age.
Mrs. , Spahr was born in Baltimore County,
Maryland, whence her parents removed, when=
shewas piling, to Broni Conntyja. She was,,
for a number of years, ; ,a ,meinber of the,
didt Church, and" her life was. in secordance , ,with
her Christian' unfasten. She 'was 'a lady of iu
telligence. of amiable ' nnd agreeable' manners,
and kind and.affeetionate, as 'a wife, Mother, and
friend. She tenderly loved her .children, ,and
felt an ardent desire for their spiritual,welfare—
said she only desired to live that she might . help
to train them up for God. She exhibited a meek,
calm, and unmurmuring submission, under her
long continued affliction ; and, in the full posses
sion and clear exercise of her reason, she calmly,
and without a struggle, closed,her eyes in death.
She is gone. Her death 'has cast'a cloud of sor.L
row over the hearts of a numerous circle of
friends, by whom she Was tenderly beloved ; but
to her bereaved husband and three children, the
eldest her step-son, her loss isirreparable. The
light of their dwelling is' taken away, and their
hearts are bowed down with sorrow but, cheered
in this hour of darkness with the belief that their
loss is her unspeakable. - gain, they «sorrow not
as those without hope." W. 3.

Thisinteresting and promising young man had
never formally united with the Churohi , but
formed his mother and his pastor that'ha had
been deeply impressed with a sense of Divine
things, during the refreshing season, enjoyed by
the church of Dunlap's Creek, in the Winter and
Spring of 1856, and that he had obtained peace
in Christ He expressed a strong desire to unite
with the church, and live for the glory of God,
should his life be spared. But the Lord had oth
er service for him than in the Church below. A
voice from his early grave says impressively to
the young, "Be ye also ready." S. W.
DIED-Of the effects of cholera morbus, on the
21st of Anzust, and in the 64th year of his age,
Mr. SAMUEL Ursa, a Ruling Elder in the Pres
byterian church of Dunlap's Creek.
Mr. L. was descended of godly parents, a child
of the covenant, and ,adorned his profession in
all the relations of life, and thus greatly Magni
fied the rich _grace, of. God, and his covenant
faithfulness. He, was, eminently characterized by
humility, modesty, meekness, and benevolence;
diligence in the business of life ; punctuality
in attending on all the means of grace ; liberality
in the support of the Gospel at home and abroad ;
a-cordial friend oUthe Church and her Boards;
his intelligence in the ScriptUres, and attachment
to the doctrines of grace ; ,hig peaoeable temper ;
his candor and honesty; his tenderness of heart
and tearful sympathy with all, in their Christian
exercises, and especially with young converts.
His, pastor and brethren in the Session well know
how his tears of sympathy would, flow when
young Christiana were under examination for ad
miesion to the Church. Our Church has lost one
of, her men or effectual, fervent. prayer ;" but
the Church above has, we trust, gained a member
to her celestial choir of praise. He has left an
interesting family, consisting of a widow and
seven children to have their full shire, with a
large circle of friends and acquaintances, in cher
jibing the memory of one who lived beloved, and
died lamented, by all who , knew him. I heard
a voice from heaven, saying write, Blessed are
the dead who die in the Lord," &c.
