FARbLINGTON, Fayette Co., Pa., I .
June 21st, 1858.
R.Ev. DR. MOKINNEY—.Dear Sir:—Yon
'who are so well provided in the cities with
all the privileges and advantages of regular
preaching and commodious churches, can
have but a limited and imperfect idea of the
.condition of those, who can only sometimes
hear the Gospel preached. It is a sore pH-
Titan to the Christian, to be compelled to
forego the privilege of mingling in the pub
lic worship of God in his own house, and on
his own day. In our mountain regions,
many are so situated. Preaching comes
only at distant and irregular intervals,
and when services are held in some moun
tain sobool•house or little (thumb, the distance
of many from the place of worship makes
it impossible for them to go to hear the Word.
In order to place a little church in as central
end accessible a position as possible, where
reaching could be had 000asionally, two
liberal and worthy gentlemen agreed to as
sume the resposibility of paying for a ehuich
which should cost $6OO. For this the
neighborhood was to raise as much as they
could, and the balance these gentlemen
stand pledged to pay. Toward the payment
of this sum, about $2OO have been raised,
after most diligent and thorough visitation;
and such is the wealth of the people of this
region, that more, we honestly believe, could
not be done by them. Now there is a Pres
strength in this quarter, which
'ought to be develdped and increased, and
we are doing what little we can, in the way
of breaking unto them spiritual bread from
time to time, to build up and multiply and
confirm a godly people here.
The people of this charge do not like that
such a burden should rest on two persons,
when in justice it should be borne by them
all. • But they feel that they have done their
best, and now it remains for these two gen
tlemen to do the rest. These persons
are very worthy men, bat we are sure the
payment of this debt will tax them beyond
what is right or proper to be borne. Will
not some one_ who has means to command,
send a little to the aid of these people
Men with such hearts as these have, who
have agreed to stand in the breach, ought
to have supporters and aids. All they can
receive from this quarter they have, but
these are by no means enough. Money and
means are not to' be gathered on our moun
tains as we can gather the grapes and the
berries in their season. Will not, therefore,
some generous ones be found among all
those to whom your paper goes, who can and
will send up a mite to free this little charge
from ito uneasy condition, and these worthy
men from their onerous burden? If any
are so disposed, their gifts will be received
with thankfulness, if they will remit them

.4 the Pronely Government in H. Belly's project
' lll Nicaragua and Central America.
The Union in noticing this subject, says: In
volving, as the operations of this personage did,
if they had been official, a clear violation of the
well known policy of this Government, in regard
to European colonization and the establishment
of exclusive European jurisdiction on this conti
nent, it was not to have been supposed that the
French Government could have authorized the
action taken by M Belly, in Nicaragua. The
Administration contemplates ordering a larger
naval force than we have heretofore had in the
waters of Central America and the Gulf, not on
account of new demonstration of 'interference by
foreign powers in that quarter, but with the gen
eral design of more effectually protecting the
lawful rights of our citizens, and guarding our
national interests from jeopardy.

auspicious settlement of the visit or search
The Secretary of the Treasury invites sealed
proposals until the 9th of August for $10,000,000

the act of the 14th June. It .will be reimbursa

1869, and bear interest at the rate of five per
cent. per annum, payable semiannually. No
bide will be received below par, and none for any
fractions of one thousand dollars. In all cases
the bids must be unconditional, and without
reference to the bide of others, and must sta , s

together with the premium, of their accepted

The court marshal on Capt. Seth W. Barton, of

The Secretary of the Interior has rendered an
important decision in the case of the alleged pro

to show that they had settled on any improved
lands in good faith for their own benefit, and it
was in evidence that they were employed by oth
ers under whose direction and for 'whose benefit
they acted. Therefore their claim is invalid and
is ordered to be cancelled. This decision estab
lishes a precedent that neither of the acts of
1841 and 1C44, for the relief of citizens of towns
on lands of the United States, refers to town
sites not already occupied as such at the time of
their passage, and that the parties must be actual
occupants of the town in order to enjoy the ad
vantages they confer.
A decided stand has been taken in regard to
Central American affairs. The governments of
the several States will at once be informed
through our minister that the administration is
determined in any event to eustain all the rights
and interests which have been secured to our citi
zens by grant or charter in that quarter.

off the right hand forefinger and puts out the left

Egypt are thus mutilated. He also states that
justice is sold publioly at the tribunals every
day—and goes a begging for buyers. Thus at

costs the modest sum of fifty purses, or about

Pirrearracm, Tuesday, June 29.
We are indebted tt the Pittsburgh Gazette for the follow
ing remarks: "The weather continues warm and clear—
too warm :or comfort, but just the thing for the growing
crops. The few weeke of bright weather, coming just in
the nick of time, have dispelled all the gloom that wee be
fore prevalent, and croaking has given way to a feeling of
satisfaction and pleasure. In a week from now, oriels's, our
farmers will begin to harvest their wheat, and if the
weather continues dry, they will garner the best harvest
that ever fell to their lot. In Bonthein Ohio, Indiana, and
Illinois, and in Kentucky, Missouri and Tennessee, the
wheat harvest le now going on eatisfactorily. The yield Is
better than was anticipated, and the crop is secured in the
beet possible condition. In Kentucky and Tennessee, how
ever, the Oats crop is said to be a failure, and within the
past two weeks large purchases have been made for ship
merits to that region. Happily, the prospect for our Oats
crop is excellent, and Barley, which is a prime substitute
for Oats, as hod for horses, is also a splendid crop. The
Corn crop is baokward, everywhere, but under this glorious
weather is coming forward rapidly., The papers everywhere
express the belief that the yield will be much larger than
was et first anticipated, and that, if the frost does not pre
maturely nip it, we shall have enough for all our wants.
Taking the whole country together, thti intelligence is very
favoiable. there wilt be same spate, here and there, where,
disaster from floods and other causes, will cause a short
yield; -but the general yield promises to be abundant!'

thus made was accompanied by a life of earnest
piety and decided Christian attachment. Peri odi

under the influence of a firm and steady faith in

of Whitely, Green County, Pa , in the 82d year

Mrs. Stevenson was esteemed by her numerous
acquaintances as a woman of integrity and moral
worth. For many years prior to her death, she
was an exemplary member of New Providence

As a husband and ftther, be showed a very in
telligent and indulgent regard for the comfort and
welfare of his family, both temporal and spiritual.
is civil society, he was both void of offence and
full of the spirit of accommodation. His attend
ance on the ordinances of God's•house was most
punctual and devout In Eidersridge church,
from its organization, during the twenty-three
years of his membership, he was very rarely ab
sent from public worship, whether on the Sabbath
or any other day. And though set off, fiVet 'Tars
ago, at the organization of West Lebanon church,
it is believed that he never missed attendance on
any communion season in the former ollurch, till
the: time of his death. Being chosen to the elder
ship in the latter organization, he soon began to
manifest a growing degree of spirituality in , ex
perience, and of wisdom in counsel; also of lib
eralitY and enlightened . zeal for the cause of
Christ at home "and abroad. His disease, pneu
monia, was of less than two weeks duration, and
so depressing in its influence as to forbid his
talking much. Still the whole tenor of his ex
perience, so far as it could be knownin that try
ing time, made it evident that the God by whose
grace and for - whose glory he' had lived, was in
'death his satisfying portion; that the Saviour
whom he loved in life was. "in the valley and
shadow of death," his supporter and comforter,
so that he feared no ill "Help Lord, for the
godly man ceaseth, for the faithful fail from
among the ehildren of men." D:
Dian March 18th, in Liberty Township, Mon
tour County. Pa., Mr. Wm. 11. Auras, in the 28th
year of his age. , ,
His illness was somewhat protracted, but yet
borne by him with great patience and resignation.
As he grew near his end, he ripened rapidly for
the change. And so signally was the glory of
our blessed religion displayed in his dying hours,
that he had no desire to live, no fear .of death,
but au earnest longing to be with Jesus. It is but
seldom, indeed, we are brought so near " the verge
of heaven," as in the death-bed scene of this dear
young man. Though for some time previous to
his death he wad unable to speak above a whisper,
he wished all who came to see him to be brought
to his bedside, that he 'might tell them how
happy he was; and he continued to admonish
and exhort them, though persuaded to desist on
account of his diftaulty in breathing, declaring
that he wished to spend his last breath in the ser
vice of. God. And on being urged to sleep, so as
to rest himself from the exhausting labor of talk
ing to his comrades and acquaintance, he an
swered, "Oh, no, I never expect to sleep again;
there is no sleeping in heaven." He loved. to
hear those who were with him, sing the, beautiful
hymn, "I would not live aiway," and desired it
to be sung at his funeral. "Two, years ago,"
said he, "my cheeks bloomed with youth, but
thank God, heaven is better than youth." And
thus he passed away -in the freshness of his
young manhood, not only peaceful and happy,
but triumphant. And in his death, we who are
left, have sweet assurance of• the truthfulness of
the promise, " Lo, I am with you alway, even
unto the end." J.J.A.M.

Susquehanna County, Pa., after a short illness,
Mrs. MARY 13113.01tA.RD, wife of John S. Birchard,
in the 51st year of her age.
At the early age of twelve, Mrs. B. professed
faith in Christ, and to the day of her death, led 'a
consistent, Christian life. She was one of the
original members of the Presbyterian church of
Friendsville; and her husband is the only remain
ing Ruling Elder in that chureh; The lively in
terest she manifested in the spiritual welfare of
her family, and in the extension of Christ's king
dom, as well as her consistent and exemplary
life, afford the best evidence of the sincerity of
her profession as a Christian.' In her death the
community, the church, and her own family, have
sustained a great loss. But we believe that their
loss is her infinite gain. T.T.

Little Jesse was a favqrite child at home, at

mother had consecrated him to the. Lord, and was
very anxious, to the day of her death, that he
should be spared and, qualified to serve Christ in
the Gospel ministry. But He who says, "My
thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your
.ways my ways," has taken, we hope, both mother
and son to serve him above. T.T.
DlED—June 16th, at the residence of her son,
Mr. David Reasoner, in Mercer County, Pa., Mrs.
ELIZABETH REASONER, aged 81 years.
Mrs. Reasoner emigrated to Western Pennsyl
vania more than forty years ago, *with" her hus
band; and settled 'within the bounds of Salem
congregation, where she spent the remainder of
her life in the communion of the Presbyterian
church ; and though confined to her room, and
for most of the time to herbed, for more than
three years before her death, she was enabled by
Divine grace, to bear with meek humility, her pro-'
traoted sufferings. On the day before, she was
suddenly attacked with a slight paralysis of body;
and the last day that she was able to converse
with her Christian friends, the writer inquired of
her what were her views of God in Christ, ,and
whether she felt' willing to die, and prepared to
meet God in peace; she replied; I long to be
gone; all her hope and all her oonfidenoe were,
in Jesus'Christ. • J.C.

husband, united with the Presbyterian church of
Ebenezer, under the pastoral care °Melt. Joseph
W. Henderson. Her membership was transferred
to Saltsburg church at its organization, where she
remained till 1839, when she; with her husband,-
removed to the church of Washington, in the
communion of which she remained until she was
called'to enter into the joy of her Lord, leaving
behind her an affectionate husband, with whom
she had lived forty, one Years, and six children,
together with a large'cirele of 'friends -and rely
tires, to mourn their loss. Her fortitude, during
her last sufferings, were in happy consistency
with that conformity to her Master's will, which
characterized her whole life. She patiently
waited until she was called to enter into the rest
which remaineth for the people of God.

He was long a member and also a Deacon in

terminated in hie death, for about the space of
two years he was unable to discharge the duties
of his office, or even attend regularly the public
Ministrations of the sanctuary. Nevertheless,
his heart was with us. He loved the gates of
