[The following pleasing version of the forty
sixth Psalm is attributed to an '• Irish dignitary."
R is good.]
God is our refuge in distress—
Oar safeguard in the wilderness,
Our shelter from the storm;
Though wind's and waves a conflict make,
Though earth's foundations reel and shake,
We need not feel alarm.
A peaceful river softly flows
In tranquil streams to gladden those
Who put their trust in God ;
Within his holy place they feel
'e comfort of his presence still,
While oceans roll abroad.
What though the heathen madly rage,',
And kingdoms itilaiee war engage,
When God sends forth his voice;
lie makes , pe ilitteriag spear to bend,
Sends peace to earth's remotest end,
And `bids, the werld rejoice.
Be still,' and know thtit'be is God.;
He rules the earth with iron rod,
And sits enthroned aboie;
Re dwells With those who own his name,
The 13Fod Of Jacob still the Same—
The God of peace and love.

this is the cote of heaven." This repre
sents the Church of God, "the pillar and
ground of the truth." Not that the stones
set up was literally the gate to glory, nor
that the Church was a literal foundation
of the truth, but that as God in the Church
and through her has mainly revealed him
self to the world, so she becomes the repos
itory of the oracles of God. She holds the
truth as in a reservoir, and exhibits it
as upon a pillar; for "the word of Jeho
vah goes forth from Jerusalem, and the law
from Zion." In our luve for the Bible as a
revelation from heaven, in our zeal for the true
glory of the God of the Bible, and in our abhor
rence to Anti-Christ, which would give part
of the Ministry and intercession of the Re
deemer to created angels, and which would
place a visible . and a historically fallible
Church where the inspired Oracles alone
should be placed, let us riot forget that the
visible Church, fallible.'beeause necessarily
manifested 'in erring Man, has still, in her
hand a grand commission in regard to the
word , of the Lord. Jacob felt this as .he
rescilrom sleep. at %Luz to consecrate the
place where be had rested as a Bethel. SO T
will revery sinner feel pit, on whose darkened

the'. lorfous Gospel.: •
It appears somewhat unnatural, after the
distinct prOmise of. God of the %novenant
blessings of Abraham,that Jacob should,
introduce his vow with an " if." `'"lfGod
shall be with• me," ,ete. Bat. the. force of
the - particle here 'rendered " if," `may-lad
the same ai3 in" : 34, " Surely
(or, : 4) he mune*" etc:. Or it may be
translated, as in Is. .liii : 10,'" " When .
(since) thou shalt make his soul," etc..
The vow of Jacob then reads thus : "Sure
ly the - Lordfwill be . with me then shall
the Lord be my God," etc. This , giVes an'
expression of 'full confidence in God's faith--
fulness, 'and a determination to act accord-,
ingly. • .
The principal part of the vow of Jacob
consisted in the resolve to make the stone
pillar God's house, and 'to-give a, tithe of,
his , wealth to God., The altar. service put
into his ,hand by his. birthright privileges,
and by his special covenant relation to the
God of his fathers, enabled him fully to
carry into effect .this part..of his vow. The
stone altar; .on.whichlay Ike 'bleeding .vic
tins,' and around Which stood the devout
worshippers, constitutedthe most acceptable
temple, though i the„encompassing heavens
alone , formed. its walls. and covering. And
though he found no Melehiaedek, nor regu-,
lar. line of priests, to,the tenth of
the substance with which the Lord, yearly,
blessed him ; yet he would find no lack of
opportunity for give this, and even more, to
the cause of God. The teacher of `religion, supported by his, liber , ality. Who

to his father's house. The poor would need
alms. His wealth, too, might be given, as
to his brother Esau, to show that, as a ser
vant of 'God, he was for peace. But the
richest benefit wetild be to himself. Selfish
ness, by his vow to tithe his income, would
be curbed.- ,The love of wealth, which often
drives men to be monomaniac, would be
kept in proper.bounds. • Enjoyment, which
flows to man formed for society,. would
be greatly increased, as' the heart would
go out with the tithes scattered 'to make
others happy. What is true of Jacob
has always been true. It is Wise still for

We have enumerated only a part of what,
in some time in the past, constituted differ
ent countries, as we usually understand the
word, inhabited by different races, indigenous
or foreign, and characterized by diverse
dialects, governments and religions.
In looking to the present population of
British India,. we are met with great diver
sity of estimates: Hamilton put it down at
one hundred and' thirty-four millions, and
Elphinstone at one hundred and forty mil
lions. As these estimates were made before
the acquisition of Seinde and Punjaub, we
may safely assume the entire population at
one hundred and fifty millions. Of these,
the Mohammedans number, according to
various estimates,-from ten millions to eigh
teen millions.: All the rest are llindoos,

American Indians, have shown that a vege
table oil answers the same purpose as animal
food; that one pound of parched Indian
corn, or an equal quantity of cornmeal, made
into bread, is more than equivalent to two
pounds_of fat meat.
"Meal from Indian corn contains more
than four times as much olea g inous matter
as wheat flour; more starch, and consequent
ly capable of producing more sugar, and
though less gluten, in other important com
pounds it contains nearly as much nitrogenous
material. The combination of alimentary
compounds in Indian corn, renders it alone
the mixed diet capable of sustaining man
under the most extraordinary circumstances.
In it, there is a natural coalescence of ele
mentary principles which Constitute the
basis of Organic life, that exista,in no other
vegetable production. In ultimate composi
tion; in nutritious properties,in
and , in its adaptation to the varied necessities
of animal fife in the different climates of the
earth ; corn meal is capable of supplying'
•more of the absolute wants of " the"adtilt
human system than any other single sub
stance in nature."

A Bit of Advice.
Have you enemies? Go strait on, and
don't• mind them. If they get in:your way
walk around them, regardless of their spite.
A man that basno enemies is seldoin good
for thing-- r he is made of
,that' kind of
material,'which is so easily worked that ev
ery body has a hand in it. Sterling charm.
ter—=one who thinks for himself; and speaks
Whit he thinks—is always sure to have en
emies. They are as necessary to him .as
fresh air—they keep him alive and active.
A celebrated character, who was surrounded
by enemies, used to remark : "They are
sparks which, if you do not blow, will 'go
out. themselves." Let this be your, feeling
while, endeaVoring to live down the scandal
of those who are bitter agairst you. If you=
stop`' to dispute,' you do but as they desire,
and open the *ay for_ more abuse." Let the
peer fellows talk—there will be a reaction,
if you perform but your duty, and hundreds
who were once alienated from you, will flock
to you and acknowledge their error.
Responsibility of Subscribers.
1.. `Subscribers wile do not kiiv - express
notice, to the contrary, are conSidered as
wishing t,) continue , their subscriptions.
2. If subscribers order the disdontinu
ance of their papers, the-publisher may con
tiitte to send them until all arrearages are
3. If subscribers neglect or take
tbeir papers from the office to which they are
directed, they are held responsible till they
have settled the bill, and ordered Ihe'paper
4. If subscribers move to other, places
without, informing the publisher, and. the
paper is sent to the former direction, they
are held responsible.
5 :The Court's have decided ,
that refusing
to tali° a paper-from the office, or removing
and leaving it uncalled for, is prima fade
evidence. of intentional fraud.—/Vetospq'per
Iron and Steam in England.
Since the year 1785 there have been
made sixty, millions tons of pig iron within
the narrow space •of England alone. No
less an-amount than forty-five millions of
tons of this 'crude iron has been used in the
coniFeitive arnifdaturir'efihittriliilliehs
tons of rolled or malleable iron. This, great
manufacturing .busineSs has .consumed two
hundred 'intrten millions tons of anal—the
great source of manufacturing heat—one
hundred and thirty five millions tons of raw
ironstone,,and twenty-seven millinuslteps - of
limestone. The, business, has added twelve
millions pounds sterling to the rentals of the
'mineral owners—all out of materials formerly
hidden and useless. Steam is the great
mover 'in all this. Without its, scientifte
application as a laborioui worker, it is prob
able that the' great bulk of the ironstone,
eoal; - and lime, would still have been slum
bering in unopened - recesses 'of the earth.
ThC'same element hai giver Englaiid nearly
a 'million and a half 'horses 'power on her
raihiarys. On the ocean there are realized
'wonders of at least `equal vaule. At the
present time, there is now building the
largest, ship the world ever saw, of wrought
iron plates, such , as , were Unheard of not

a giant specimen of, marine architecture,
,which could never be impelled along the
.waste of waters, without the untiring force
of steam. The large wrought : iron plates
forming her.structural details--twenty•sev,en
`feet long, four feet three inCes wide and one
and, a half inches thick, and weighing two
and a half tons each—are in themselies tri
rtinphs of mechanical preduction,"Whieb, the

Of prejudice it has been truly, said, that
it hati 4 the singular ability of itecomModating
itself to all the possible varieties - of the
hi marf . mind: Some vides and Passions are
bit thinly Rendered among mankind, and
'find-'only here and there a fitness of recep
tion., But-prejudice, like the spider, makes
-its 'home every where. It has neither taste
nor choice2of lodging plaCe, and allthatit
requires is room.' Tbere , is scarcely a situa
tion, except fire and water, in which a spider
will not live. So let the mind be as malted
as the walls of an empty and forsaken.> tens
ment, gloomy as a,: dungeon, or ornamented
with the richest abilities of thinking; let it
belot cold, dark or light, lonely or inhab
ited, still, prejudice, if ,undisturbed,, will fill
it:with, cob-webs, and live, like the spider,
where -there seems nothing to live on. If
'the one prepares her food by poisoning it to
her palate and her use, the other does the
same; and,, as, several of ,our ;i passions are
strongly charabterized by the animal world,
