    ;1 a mutter of course, these can only be con
sidered a pproximative. According to this,
there are in the United States, excepting
California, and excluding a small class of
retailers in the large cities, 204,061 busi.
ne;s urns or houses. This would give a
stem for every 25 families, or for every 125
per , nns, estimating the population at 25,-
000,000 There have been lost by 337
swiudlirg and akconding debtors, $5,222,
500; nud by 512 firms, which will , pay
not hi n g, their confidential debts absorbing
every thing, $20,309,000. Concerns to the
number of 3,839 owe $197,080,600, which
will pay from forty to fifty cents on the
dollar, and 435 houses owe $77,189,000,
which will puy in full, if in the future they
should be ordinarily prosperous.
On the evening of the 12th 'inst., the .
Rev. Dr. Bethune delivered a lecture before
the Historical Society, on « Common
Sense;" the discourse was enlivened by a
plentiful supply of sparkling wit and sena
men t.
The same evening, Dr. Orestes A. Brown
son discoursed on the " Popular Objections
to Catholicity," before one of the largest
audiences ever assembled in the Aoademy of
kluge, in compliance with an invitation by
a number of Catholic gentlemen. The oh
jealous of which he treated were, that
Catholleity was unfavorable to individuality
of character, that it debases the intellect
and leads to spperstition, and that it .de
grades human nature. These he answered
in a manner entirely satisfactory to himself,
at least. In discussing the last, he quietly
assumed that the entire civilization of Ea
rope and America owed its origin to the
Roman Catholic religion ! For some time
Brownson has showed himself inclined to , be
restive in his present position. But on this
occasion the Roman Catholic clergy were
out in full force, and at the close, Bishop
Hughes oomplimented both the speaker and
audience, and was loudly cheered.
At the late meeting of the "Statistical
Section " of the Geoyriaphical Society, it
was said, in a report offered, that the day
was not far distant, at the present rate of
progress, when one in every four of the in
habitants of the great State of New York
would be paupers. It was also reported
that, according to the most approved data,
there were, in the United States, eleven
millions thirty two thousand four, hundred
and fourteen above the age of twenty, of
whom eighty-four thousand and sixty-six
were drunkards; and that of these, five
thousand one hundred and twelve, ornue in
every one hundred and thirty:one- of the
population over the age of twenty, died
every year , from drunkenness. At the'same
meeting, the Rev. Messrs. Thompson and
Abbott spoke of the comparative' merits of
the public and private schools, giving a ,de
aided preference for the former, in point.of,
the appliances in the way of school room,,
instruments, Sm., and also of ability on the
part of the teachers. This is entirely differ
ent from the opinion entertained in many ;
planes, but the facts presented by the speak
ers cannot be easily controverted.
Mr. Thomas Atlibone, who has, of late,
acquired an unenviable notoriety, because,
of the charges made against him in connex
ion with the Bank of Pennsylvania, has re
turned, with his , family, from Europe,
confront, as It is said, his accusers, and to
acquit himself of blame., ,
The lee.Dealere and ioe-consumers`are
beginning to fear the want of a supply for
the nest Summer. Usually, hundreds of
persons are engaged at this season of the
year, in housing ioe ; but as yet, neither thi
Schuylkill nor its tributaries have given any
promise of being frozen over at all during
the present Winter.
Since the elevation of Bishop Ty•iter to'
the Episcopate of ,Peunsylvania, he has
done much to promote the interests of his
Church. Lately he has opened a training
school for the ministry, in the'Aeademy of
the Protestant Episcopal Church, in this
city, under the superintendence of the Rev.
G. &lien Hare, D. D., for the purpose of
increasing the number of pions, working, and
faithful ministers in the Diocese. •
The Passenger Railroad, on Fifth and
Sixth streets, has beentopened for use. The
trial trip'was made by the Company, to their
entire satisfaction. The distance is seven
miles and six -tenths, and the time occupied
was fifty-two minutes.

Revival at Upper Ten Mile, Pa.
pleasure in communicating to you the foot
that the church of Upper Ten Mile is'again
enjoying a precious season of spiritual: re
freshing, The. first Sabbath after the. Con
vention at Pittsburgh, the Pastoral Letter
was read from the pulpit, and seemed'to
make a deep impression. At the close of
the service, the church, on consultation,.
agreed to pray in concert for a revival of
God's work of grace, each evening of that
week, and . also to observe Tuesday of the
following week as a day of fasting, humilia
tion and prayer, to the same end. An ex,-
tiaordinary spirit of prayer came down upon
God's people. Believers were enabled to
take hold on God, and the general feeling
seemed to be, "We will not let thee go ex
cept thou bless us " This concert in prayer
Waß found to be an excellent preparation for,
the fast; and though the weather proved '
stormy, and but few of the unconverted
were present, the members of the church
generally attended, and we had a solemn
and delightful meeting. On the two fol. I
lowing days there was a general religious
visitation of the congregation, the pastor and '
elders going two and two, in three compa
nies, on We service, holding prayer-meet,
inga in different localities,' on teach evening.
The usual services preliminary to a com
munion season followed, and the Sacrametit
of the Lord's Supper was administered on
Sabbath, Brother Kerr preaching ,and as
sisting on that occasion. It was a day that
will not soon he forgotten by those who ;
were present, Seldom, if ever, has it been
my lot to witness such a Sacramental season
—so tender, so melting, so full of Christian
love and spiritual jay, and where Jesus was
to manifestly present, by his Spirit, in 'the
hearts of both' and el
solemn, and in some instances, as the event
proved, saving impressions were made upon
the nkluds of the unconverted. At the
close of the service, a vote was taken, and,
with one voice, the church expressed the
desire, (in which not a few of the uncon
verted joined,) that the meeting should be
continued. The feeling of all hearts was
kindred to that of the ancient church, at
the great Passover in the beginning of
liezekiah's reign,
when, after having kept
" the feast seven days with great gladness,"
"the whole assembly took counsel to keep
other seven days," and "there was great, joy
in JeruSalem. '-2. Chron. xxx : 21-26.
Public services were kept up, for the most
part twice daily, for seventeen days. Some
fifteen or more individuals, during the meet
ing, professed hope in Christ, a portion of
whom, however, belonged to families not
connected with our Church. Three family
altars Were reared. Kind and valuable as
sistance was rendered by brothers Brownson,,
Kerr, and M'Carrell, to whom the cordial
thanks of pastor'and people are due, and for
whose tender and faithful labors, through the
Meiling of God,' some precious souls will
have occasion to rejoice in eternity.
God's people have been generally and
greatly refreshed and strengthened by this
precious work of graoe, and •they feel that
they can go on their way rejoicing, filled
with fresh zeal and courage. Many of the
unconverted are still solemnly impressed
with a sense of eternal realities, and some
are anxiously inquiring, "What . must we
do to be saved ? "Why should the work
cease?" We trust that it will not; but
that, through the wrestling importunity and
faithful labors of the children of God, it
will go forward till " a great multitude are
obedient to the faith."

Da. MOKINNWIC:-I apprised your readers a
short time since, that it was in contemplation to
organize a Presbyterian ohurch at Galvy, a thrive
ing town of some fifteen hundred inhabitants in
Henry COunty, Illinois. This service has been
performed by a COmmittee of ihb Preebytery of
Rook River, and a little band of eleven pereona
were duly organized into a church on the 12th of
the present month. Revs. W. C. Mason and W.
W. Harsha being said Committee. William Ayers,
Esq ; for many years an elder in the neighboring
church of 'Andover, in the same county, was
chnien elder. Their prospects under the blessing
of God may be regarded as encouraging.
Brother 3. M. Marshall, under whose labors, as
a missionary, these persons have been !mind out
and brought to constitute themselves a church of
Christ, continues to labor with them one-half his
time. He is a. young man of indefatigable indus
try, untiring energy and fine attainments. The
Lord has certainly blessed his labors in this field,
and if hie life and health be Spared, we doubt not
as to his future usefulness.
Galvy is a young railroad town at a point upon
the Chicago and Burlington Railroad, where it is
crossed by another from the Eastern part of Illi
nois to strike the Mississippi at New Boston, some ,
thirty miles below Rock Island. This location is
highly favorable to a future growth-.
The other half of brother.ltt's time is occupied
in a field of labor, some eighteen miles West of
Galay, called' Heathland, where, located in an
exceedingly. fertile section of country, he has a
church of some sixty or seventy members. .With
in the bounds of this Heathland charge is the
new town ,of Leoti, which is brother M.'s Post
Office addreis.
A very encouraging revival of interest upon the
subject of religion, has 'existed for some time
past in the North Henderson church; in Merger
County, Illinois. Brother John H. Nevius, :.the
pastor, writes that fourteen have already, as the
fruit, been received into the church upon the pro
fession of their faith, and many more are anxious
ly inquiring the way of life. These are mostly
young persons, and are thus led to give the dew
of their youth to the Lard. May the work con
tinue. -
A somewhat striking illustration of the variety'
found in Western society, Was seen at ..a. prayer
Meeting a few evenings since, when .there were
'representations from Prussia; Norway, Africa,
England,and from seven different American States.
finelt a gathering is not unlike the assemblage,
upon the day of Pentecost, where " devout men
were present . " out of every nation under heaven"
who heard the Apostles speak in their own tongues
the wonderful works of God. The Lord is thus
throWing upon our shores, and causing b mingle
with ns in all our gaiherings, persons from every
-part of the : earth that , we may more distinctly
learn the depravity of the entire human family,
and be prepared to do them , good whenever ,we
may find them. And that there is need of 4his,
will be seen in the fact, as stated by the police
reports of .a Western city, that of two thousand
-three hundred and eighteen crimes of all kinds
committed during the past year one thousand'
nine hundred nnd forty-four, or all but three hen.-
.dred and seventy-four were committed by persons
of foreign birth. Of these, one thousand and five
Were from Ireland, and but fifty-three from Scot
land; a significant circumstance, and illustrative
oP the influence upon the masses of the antago
nistic systems of Protesbntism and. Popecy.
The United Presbyterian of the West speaks, as`
follows of the progress made in the work of union
between the Associate and Associate Reforined
Churches, to which your readers will remember I
referred in previous letters.
""How is the union coming on ? What are the
prospects ? These questions are sometimes put • to
us, and though men do not ascribe 'to us the name
and praise of high flown Unionists, we suppose we ,
may use our privilege as journalists to answer
-them as well as wemm. .
" But we have nothing very flattering to report.
In some localities, where the 'Union fever, or
something which men took for it, 'once ran very ,
high, the prospect now is not very inviting. • The
cause drags. In the language of a correspondent,
the Churches may be joined, but they will
not be united. Harm has been done by too much
action, aid too much anxiety. He that beliwr
eth will not make haste,' areTiiords which cow'
tain, an important , lesson. The difficulty is , to
know what are the proper times and occasions for
practicing it, and it is often a real difficulty. In
some other plaees, men say the Union is an actual
fact. The united Church, they say, is in actual
existence. Virtually, they must mean, otherwise
they contradict the basis which affirms, that no
person oan belong to two Churches at the same
time. The separate Synods, if we mistake not, i;
are to meet -next May, which implies that the
original Churches will remain in their separate ,
state till that time, we should think." -
Thus it would appear that a Union is not yet e'
consummated, thougo the Synodical action of the
two Churches would seem to have implied it. ,We
hope, however, that two bodies having so little to
divide them, will soon be one.
The -editor of the Christian Times, the Baptist
paper published at Chicago, presented recently
some important thoughts upon the " Theology of
Hymns." Ile says: " It is a matter of more bn
portance than some may have considered, that
hyratii should embody a sound theology. Taught
to ohildren among their first lessons, sung in s the,
great congregation,' and in the andel prayer—.
meeting, at times when hearts are peculiarly open •
to impression; entertained with confidence, as an
utterance of Christian truth, not less than .of
Christian feeling, they have a power which should
'be need with proper discretion and judgment" '
He then cites some instances from hymns which
are favorites in some communities, and with some
denbminations, to which he takes exception, and
pretty clearly proves that some hymn writers
have embodied into their sacred songs sentiments
which will not bear the test of criticism. The
j fact is,•the independency of some Churches has
been extended to the adoption of collections of
hymns, and it has no doubt worked to the intro
duction of much trash, and what is more to be
lamented, much poison. There is no need for ,
this. As to our own Church there should .be
thorough review of !this matter by certain mope.
tent authors, who should carefully revise_ eier:4
line and every word claiming to be a Sclipturail
song for the sanctuary, and know that it accordr
with the revealed will of God. But so long 8;7,
Ward Beecher, and any one who pleases; ottr 4
"get up" collections of hymns, for the very pur
pose, perhaps, of making them a vehicle of (tom
vagary in doctrine, there will be much to oom
plain of. I rejoice that theeditor of the Time
has spoken out upon this important subject. W
hope his warning will do good: -We have Stand
and Psalms and Hymns, which have been for e.
many years before the Christian public that they
may be regarded as fairly installed in publVf
, favor. Of tie may oompolii oar , 00lleti •

of their regard and esteem.
Yesterday morning brought withit a short note,
enclosing $62.50, as "a .New Year's - gift to their
pastor from his congregation." It is with peculiar
emotions,he attempts thus to express his appre
ciation of their kindness to him, and' though he
cannot thank them as he would, he knows that,
inasmuch as they have donelt-to one of the least
of Christ's disciples, they have done it to him, and
shall not lose their reward. • -
Their kind remembrance of their,pastofe com
fort has'net been confined to the first, day 'of the

of kindness to bim and his family. ,
That grad would bless his labors among them,

The investigating of Congressional Corrup

can hardly be doubted but its detection and ex

their representatives to the strictest moral ac

a Corgresman, or a member of a State Legis
lature, should cause him to be dropped by bis
constituents. And those members of a public
body who will make proper efforts to purge it,
should be had in honor.

almost stealthily conferred. And not a few there
are who have gone, years in advance of her,
to the "many mansions" in the "Father's
house," having been " made friends to her with
the mammon of unrighteousness," that now,
when she has failed from earth, have with rap
turous welcome "received her into everlasting
habitations." And even at a later period, when
her husband was without charge, superannuated,
and helpless, and their oireumstances become
greatly straitened, she never could wholly forego
the luxury of practical benevolence. Having com
municated to needy persons some of those
" mites " which were " all her living," and
which, because thus lent to the Lord, he knows
how to estimate and also to reward in a way of
grnoe, she would 'say with ardor, "It is more
blessed to give than to reeeive." But a "fiery
trial was to try her, that the trial of her faith,
being more precious thin of gold that perisheth,
though it be tried in the,fire, might be found unto
praise,'and honor, and glory, at the appearing of
Jesus Christ." Thirteen years ago, by an attack
of rheumatism in all her limbs, she ores laid
upon a bed of bitter pain, from which she was
never again to. "rise up. : and walk."' All her
elute became distorted 'Her flesh wasted nearly
