    of Filch n volume as this, that the discourses it
contains arc not those (any of them, we believe,)
or rightly ordained iniuisters of the Catholic
Church, lint only of those several separate com
munities which are included iu the generic and
most unsalisfactory term " Protestant." There
is no doubt that Nlonod, Krummacher, and 'the
lurk, were all very eloquent preachers—preachers
of th e G os p e l, o f c oarse they will be considered
by Protestants generally. Still, they were eepri
ratists from the One, Catholic and Apostolic
In like manner it objects to the title of
the work lately published, styled, "The
New York Pulpit in the Revival of 1858,"
because it contains no sermons by Episcopal
ministers ; and criticises any revival by
sneering at the thought of any work of the.
Holy Spirit, in a Church not Episcopally
constituted. Read its language as to both
these particulars:
In view of the fact of its having been confined
ex 31u4ively to the Feo s—to those to whom the Apos•
tie most unquestionably refers when he cautions
the Primitive Coureh at Rome to mark those "who
cause divisions and offences, and avoid them"
—we cannot, for the lite of u', see with what
truth it can be said that any such excitement has
been the work of the Holy Spirit, which is a
Spirit of truth, unity, and concord: not of error,
dis+ension, and disagreement. It manifests very
strikingly how =lobe such a combination of
sectarianism can be, in spoh a matter, when, in
a revival declared to be so evidently produced
" by the power of the Holy Spirit," that branch
of the One Catholic and Apostolic Church of
Christ, which can trace its descent from the Apos
tles—which is a veritable branch of the same
Church which Christ instituted, and his Apostles
organised, and the holy Fathers developed—when
such a Church, we say, that is, 'the Church to
which we ourselves belong, should be utterly
ignored in the consideration of such a ease.
But as to what the publishers—somewhat pro
fanely, we must confess—have dared to connect
with the movement from which it has sprung,
namely, " the power of the Holy Spirit," and the
glory of God, in the work carried on, we must
reiterate our most decided conviction that it pro
ceeds on a great and fatal delusion.
One can only smile at the presumption
and pity the weakness of the author of such
sentiments as these. To be angry with such
an one is impossible.
The Fifth was signalized by several .mili
tary parades, excursions to the country, and
the burning of a considerable amount of
powder, For the anticipations of old John
Adams in the , memorable letter written to
his wife, immediately after the signing of
the Declaration of Independence, with re.
Bard to the remembrance of the day on which
the great event was consummated by the
firing of guns, &a., is folly realized in our
day, however far we may come short in some
of the other particulars mentioned. The
Democracy held a meeting in Independence
Square, at which speeches were made. by .
Charles Ingersoll, Esq., and the Hon. Wm
Bigler. In the evening the Anniversary of
our National IndePendenoe was celebrated
in Jaynes' Hall, under the auspices of the
Young Men's Christian Association. George
H. Stuart, Esq , presided, and the several
evangelical denominations were represented
on the platform. The Scriptures were read
by the Rev. Dr. John MaDowell, and prayer
was offered by George Duffield, Jr. Ad
dresses were made by the Rev. Dr Brantly,
of the Baptist Church, Rev. Mr. Mackey, of
the Episcopal Church, Rev. Albert Barnes,
of the New School Presbyterian Church,
Rev. Mr. Crowell, of the Old School, and
others. But the address by. the Rev. John
Chambers fairly "brought down the house."
It was full of patriotic and religious feeling,
expressed with even more than the usual
glowing and stirring language of this well
known speaker.
The Episcopal Recorder has a leader call
ing upon the Hpiscopal Church in this land
to enter Elpou the aggressive work of the
Gospel. This is the organ of the Lai
Church party in this State, and in urging its
Church to this work, it does not recommend
aggression upon other denOminations of
Christians, but upon the world and the king
dom of Satan. It is not enough for any
Church, to bold its own, it must go forward,
receiving captives, and winning trophies to
Jesus Christ. o' The kingdom of Christ is
to be established on the rains of the king
dom of Satan."
Since Atlantic City is so closely connected
with Philadelphia, so much indebted to it,
and so largely dependent upon it, we are
justifiable in mentioning any thing concern
ing it in this connexion. It may interest
some seeking the sea shore to know that a
daily Union prayer meeting has been opened
at Atlantic City, in the Presbyterian church,
and that it is intended to continue it through
the season. This may tend to keep the
graces of Christians alive, and to protect
them from the effects of idleness and dissi
pation around them.
One of the good effects of the Late Re
vival, and one that cannot be overestimated,
is the interest awakened in behalf of spir
itual religion in a large portion of the
respectable secul4r press. The North Amer
ican does credit to itself, when it says of
the "religious movement :"
Of all nations in the world, the United States
elan least afford the loss of religious, restraint.
The character of our institutions, and the freedom
which is so readily perverted into license, demands
the acknowledgement .of Divine authority. For
while human power is set at nought, and the
people are taught to consider the authority of
their rulers as a power created by the governed,
it is absolutely essential that we should acknowl.
edge some authority which we, the governed,
have not created, which we cannot escape, and can
neither deny nor destroy. A republican govern
ment, properly administered, offers the highest
advantages for religious culture. While we insist
that all men are equal before the Creator, which
truth has the sanction of religion as well as polit•
iota ethics, It is indispensable to our happiness
and to our virtue, that we acknowledge the author
ity of that Creator. To do this in vague general
expre talons, every one is ready. But to have any
11.fluence over our oonduot, religion must be not
a theory, to be aired once a week in the sermons
or the preachers by profession. It must be a
conviction of the heart, operating upon the daily
life wet conduct. The public and universal at
tention which the claims of religion have received,
and are now receiving, throughout our land, is
Producing a reformation greatly needed.
—The Presbytery of Tombeckbee, at its late
meeting, appointed Rev. Dr E. T. Baird and
Elder W. B. Cavanah a committee to write
a pastoral letter to the churches under the
bare of Presbytery, on the subject of the,
pligions instruction of the Colored people.
Rev. Jos. Bardwell presented an essay on
the same .subject to Presbytery,` which was
ordered to be published. This does not
look as if the Presbytery ' was unwilling to
have the subjeet discussed as is -_ often
charged.-- . .PresArterian Herald.

The Anniversary at Princeton
PouNorToN, N. J., July 2, 1958.
On Tuesday, June 29th, the students, citizens,
and vi-itors, assembled in Dr. Mactlonald's large
church, to bear the address of Ea Governor Pol
lock, of Pa., before the American Whig and Clio •
s phis Societies. The subject selected by the
speaker, was " The Characteristics of the Age,
and its Demands npou the Sc olar." It was a
masterly effort, and worthy the fame of the tal
ented advocate Sound sense, conveyed in a sim
ple but eloquent style, were its characteristics.
He was full of force and animation, and his per
oration to the students was impressive.
The annual meeting of the Alumni occupied a
greater part of the afteinoon. The Hon William
C. Alexander, Chairman of the Committee of Ar
rrngements, nailed the meeting to order. The
Hon Oliver S. Halsted, of the class of 1810, took
the Chair. Col. John C. Groome, of Maryland,
and Ex Governor Pollock, acted as hie assistants,
and the Rev. E. It. Craven, of Newark, N. J., es
Secretary. The Rev. Dr. Jacob Kirkpatrick, of
the class of 1804, led the assembly in prayer be
fore the Throne of Grace.
The President, on taking the Chair, remarked
that he saw not a single member of his class pres
The correspondence was then read by Professor
John T. Duffield. A letter from Dr. William B.
Ewing, of 1794; Hon. Richard Rush, of 1797, in
which he refers to the old eighteen-pounder fired
off by the students, in his day, every Fourth of
July, thirteen times, in honor of the thirteen orig
inal States ; of the illumination of the College at
night, stirring up the hearts of the old soldiers,
living around. Society even moves forward while
men are constantly looking back—from the. Hon.
Geo. Chambers, of 1804 ; Hon. Theodore Freling.
hpysen, of 1804, absent on account of the Anni
versary exercises of the Institution over which he
presides; Hon Silas Condit, of 1795; the Hon.
Thomas Sergeant, of 1798. Ex Governor Bibb,
the oldest living graduate, except Wm. M. Mor
ton, of 1792, had not been heard from.
The President then called up the old graduates,
beginning with the class of 1848. Professor Wm.
C. Cattail, of Lafayette College, responded in a
neat, humorourS, and graceful speech.
He was followed by Oliver S. Halsted, Jr., of
the class of 1888, who entertained us with remi
nisoenoes of his College days. A worthy Profes
sor said of his class, " It contains as much.talent
and more of mischief than any I know." They
had polers, fizzlers, and stompers, and a glorious
lot they were, but when they came to graduate,
the Faculty were fairly stumped, and did not
know where to place the honors. Education, like
blood, will tell in any close encounter, and you
will find tbe graduates of eiassan Hall just where
you find the Cadets of West Point, as the forlorn
hope, prepared to do or die. They win the post
of danger, and maintain it, and wear those honors
which belong always to the good and great, the
gallant and the brave.
The classes of 1828, 'lB, and 'B, were , passed
over for want of time ; that of 1804 was represented
by the Rev. Dr. Kirkpatrick Fifty .four years
have passed away, and when I look around this
assembly and hear that I am the oldest graduate
present, my mind is impressed with the idea of
the poet, " How short and hasty is our life !"
Southard and Liodeley, O'Hara and Prime, and
others, twenty-six out of thirty-nine, have gone
to the eternal world.
When the representatives of other colleges
were called upon, Rev. Dr. M?Gill, of Jefferson,
now Professor in the Princeton Theological Semi
nary responded. lie was proud to own that he
was an Alumnus of Jefferson College, for several
reasons, and not the least as being a grandson Of
Nassau Hall, the father of that favored institu
tion, than which not one on the whole continent
has been more prospered and blessed. There
went from these classic shades to the wilds of
Pennsylvania, John Medillan, the founder of
Jefferson, the Apostle of the West, the pioneer
of a pure Christianity in Western Pennsylvania
—the patriarch of Presbyterianism West of the
mountains, of whom Daniel Webster said in my
hearing, while standing on the banks of the Sue•
quehanna, and listening to an accoun t of MoMillan's
traversing those regions, while the war whoop of
the Indian was still sounding, " Truly, his was
the voice of one crying in the wilderness." He
graduated from Nassau Hall in 1772. The first
President of Jefferson, also came from Princeton—
John Watson, the orphan boy, the ostler boy, whom
J. Addison found laboriously spelling out a muti
lated copy of Horace, on his back, in the bar of a
tavern, by the unsteady light of a pine torch. And
the-second President, James Dunlap, graduated at
Princeton in 1773. All were noble pioneers of
Western Pennsylvania, by whose labors that
" wilderness was made to blossom as the rose."
Nor had his Alma Mater failed to return the
tokens of her gratitude and high appreoiation.
A venerable ex• President, (the Rev. Dr. Carna
han,) wbo yet lingers among us, and long may he
linger for our benefit, though he came here for
his degree, received his preparatory training in
connexion with Jefferson; a man of noble 'mind,
of serene dignity and able as an executive officer.
His was the longest administration on record,
and, perhaps, one that will never be surpassed'
with posterity. She had done more, having sent
yon a man of accomplished scholarship to fill the
chair of Rhetoric. It was his ardent wish that
the offspring of ibis Institution may never fail to
elevate the standard of religious education, and
may ever prove worthy of the rank and fame of
this cherished seat of learning and piety.
Two representatives from Amherst College
being present, the Rev. Dania W. Poor, D D.,
responded : " I must express my regret and
shame that this is my first visit to. Princeton. I
feel the same pleasure , here as the iniestigator of
nature when striking upon some hidden principle, ,
or strange phenomenon. I can bear , testimony to
the stronghold this College has on all her mem•
hers, and to the deep affection her BODO bear to
their old mother. It has been my privilege to
•visit more than one New England College, and
what I saw there did not surpass what I have
seen here. I visited the graveyard, with its ven
erable dead, and line of President's tombs—not
another graveyard in this country is honored by
such holy ashes. I feel now as if the State of my
adoption, New Jersey, had flung a new nond over
me, to respect, to venerate, to love it; and to give
to it the best of my powers. As a scholar, I feel
that I have brethren here; we all, meet in com
mon, our hearts beat in unison, and there is a com
munity of feeling—one in pursuit, one in heart,
one in aim and one in hope." •
Judge J. Thomson Mason, of Maryland, class
of 1836, excused himself on account of hoarse
The Hon. Wm. L. Dayton, class of 1825, made
a short speech, alluding to he labors and fame of
- Professors Alexandor, Henry, and Guyot, and
hoped that Nassau Hall would continue to be
useful, full of productive resources, and mighty
works in the future
Gov. Pollock, of the class of 1881, was called
upon as the orator of the morniog, and expressed
the pleasure he felt in geeing such a meeting of
the sons of Nassau Hall He alluded to Prof.
Morse's connexion with the Electrio Telegraph,
and closed by saying, Henry must not and will
not be forgotten I Honored be Nassau Hall, and
honored be her sons I"
The Committee of Arrangements was continued
for next year, and the meeting adjourned.

misunderstanding between us is a matter deeply
to be deplored. The United States have evinced
their identity of race with- us by the sensitive
jealousy which they have exhibited in favor of
their national rights, but I trust that the repre-:
sentations which have been made by , my excellent
friend, the Minister from "the United States,, and

The ease of Mr. Gough, the celebrated tem
perance lecturer, against Dr. Lees, a Maine liquor
law advocate, for libel, came off in the ,Court of.
Exchequer on the 21st. The libel complained of
was contained in a private letter, and charged
Mr. Gough with being habituated to the use of
narcotic drugs for the purpose of stimulating
himself, and also with " being as wicked:a man
and as rank a hypocrite as breathes in the Queen's
dominions." Dr. Lees, it appears, had written
under the impression that he had been libeled` by
Mr• Gough. This Mr. Gough denied in' his evi
dence in court. Dr. Lees thereupon withdrew
his plea of justification; and, the case was arnica •
bly settled - by a consent to a verdict for the plain
tiff, with five guineas damages.

SARAH lawn, after a short illness, in the 22d
s ear of her age: •
In this death, we :lave another instance of the
uncertainty of life, and the fallacy of human
hope.' God's ways are not as our ways. In his
infinite wisdomle saw proper to take from fond
parents one of their principal helps, and
: give
them the Cup of affliction to drink. 'She had
made no profession of her faith, but was seriously
inclined, and fond of public worship. From the
first of her illness, the subject of religion seemed
to absorb her thoughts, and she expressed a strong
desire to, see and converse with the writer of this
article. She gave evidence of her faith in the
Saviour, and a desire , to live to witness for him ;
and, now that she is no more, we cherish the fond
hope that she-has entered into that "rest that
remaineth for the people of God." .
DIED—On May 23d, after a few weeks' illness,
at the , house of. his father, North Huntingdon
Township, Westmoreland Co., Pa., Mr. ROBERT
E. Cannot, nett 21 years and 2 months.
The disease Which so unexpectedly hurried him
to thd.grave in the very bloom of life, and from
the rich btuldings of a promising future, was in
flammation of the liver, which, in a short time
from its development, completely accomplished
its desolating work, leaving a bereaved family to
mourn his unanticipated loss. In all his rela
tions—as a son, a brother, a friend—the de
portment which he exhibited was' of the most
amiable and attractive kind; presenting features
of moral beauty and loveliness, which, it is be
lieved, will long be cherished in the hearts of
those who knew him, and operate as an example
it is hoped, to the interesting group of com
panionship which he hasleft behind him. And
though in toe bereaved household 'lance will as
sert its claims for sadness; yet what is their
loss is, we trust, to him •gain, and that he has
found a better rest and a more enduring home in
heaven. +, Let me die the death of the righteous,
and let my last end be like his."

year of her age.
The subject of this notice. at an early period
of life,
herself with the Presbyterian
church of Long Run, of which she has, ever since
been a regular and consistent member. Affliction
to her wag no new thlng, and frpm pi•evions trials
well was she prepared tonndure that which ter
minated in death. A few months before her death
she was called upon to part with two children,
which affliction she bore with resigniition and
submission, as coming from God, who death all
things well. < Leaning on Christ, and resting in
his love,, she is gone to the grave ; halve will
not deplore her, because, shatelt that Jesus was
with her, his red and staff supported her. We
therefore mourn not as`those without hope ; we
sorrow most of all that we' shall see her face no
more in the flesh. May that God'in whom she
trusted, and served so faithfully, pour the balm
of consolation into, the hearts of her bereaved hus
band and children, and may they be enabled to
say, " The Lord gave, nod the Lord bath taken
away, the name of the Lord."

24th, Mr. Jesus M. Eisewni, aged 46 years.
Mr. &evilly had been, :for some time,= a con
sistent member of the
,church of Long Ruh.
Often had he skittered from the disease, ,a repeti
tion of which, early. in Spring, now terminated
n. death. During his affliction, he uttered no
complaint, but- seemed resigned to the will of
that God and Saviour in whom he had put his
trust. He united diligence in business with fer
vency of spirit,'and in his private life he was the
affectionate husband, the kind. controlling father,
and the upright and honest neighbor.' Provi
dence smiled on the works of his hand, and when
behad provided himself with a coinfortable home,
and was blessed with the prospect of future pros
perity, God, the disposer of all events, took him
away from this busy world, to serve himself in a
future world of peace and joy. • Let an affection

behold my glory, which thou hest given me."
Disn--- l Of pulmonary consumption, on June
224. Miqs Isaekair.a. Stara, at the house of her
uncle, Mr. Andrew J. Byerly, North Huntingdon
Township, Westmoreland County,' Pa.
How- can we describe the gentle, irresistible
loveliness of our , departed friend. The most de
votedaffection could not exaggentio it, and burn
ing eloquence would fall to do it justice. Con
stantly influenced by a high •sense of religious
obligation, she was ever faithful in the discharge
of duty. • Her humility was remarkable—so 'dis
trustful-of self, so -sad in view of her own sup
posed unfaithfulness, when all the time her love
ly, consistent life was doinglits work. Her sen
sitiveepirit shrank from contact with the world;
and it VI only within the magic cirele of hime,
that her gentle and amiable character` was Tully
deieloPed. Lovel,by edevaied uncle and' aunt,'
cousins andfriends,'she laiished npon "them Mier

with intense devotion, and would not that she
should leave their watchful guardianship. No
wonder their hearts are full of anguish, and
earth seems desolate! But 0! even this dark
cloud has its "silver lining;" their loved one is safe
—safe from sin, temptation, death ; a member,
we trust, of a better Church than Long Run—of
the Church triumphant above. Her death was
lingering, but 0 how glorious! No doubt clouded
her departing spirit. Death was disarmed of its
sting, the grave of its victory, and her mind
rested entirely on Jesus.' In the bloom of her
youth, the beautiful, the beloved has left us; and,
though alone and desolate, we will not murmur,
because "thou, God, didst it."
Dian—On Sabbath, May 16th, of pulmonary
consumption, at his residence in North Hunting
don Township, Westmoreland County, Pa., Mr.
LAFAYETTE Moan's, in the 33d year of his age
Death has cut down another member of the
Presbyterian church of Long Run. Within three
months, seven members and one adherent bare
been gathered to the grave, the house appointed
for the living. Truly we are an afflicted church ;
truly the Lord hath a controversy with us, and it
becomes us to be serious and impressed. Always
a moral man, in the earlier part of his life he was
carelessubout the things of religion. Daring the
last two years, however, he felt " there was
nothing true but heaven;" and the providence of
God, the.preaching of the Word, and the salutary
counsel of his amiable and Christian lady, were
blessed, by
,God for his conversion, and, at his
urgent request, the writer of this notice, some
months since, spent a Sabbath afternoon in yell.
gious service and, conversation at his house, when
be was .introduesi into the Church by the sacra
ment of baptism. That evening he erected, his
family alter, and his practice from that moment
to„,the hew of his death, won ; becoming his ,pro
fession. In his sickness, he exhibited unwra
p awing patienceen mission o the Divine
will, and•Mihaly -rel,ying on Jesus, sweetly re
'posing on his promises and trusting in God, he
passed away to . experience that "there are no
chillb3g winds,in heaven." The presence of .God
made his dying chamber bear, testimony to, the
preciousness of the blood of Christ. And his
last moments and his struggling breath were
spent in pressing upon his relelives and friends,
and ail- around 'him, Christ and the great salva
tion. Thus, with his lamp .trimmed and burning,
did he go forth to meet Bridegroem, his dying
looks and words saying to :sorrowing relatives,
" Whither I go, you know, and the.way . you know."
Dxsn—On Sabbath; JttlY llth, 1858, of infla
motion of the , brain, Maar ,Hafeamos MirAvat,
daughter of George T. and Mary Jane Miller,
aged about 8 years, and 11-months.
Death must come to all, and as he "stalks in
ghastly triumph" over the earth, he tramples
dollen into - the grave the loveliness of beauty, the
pride and power of manhood, the hopes of the
young, and'the props and solace of declining age...
This little "flower," plucke4by an angels hand to
bloom in a holler and *happier clime, 'Was one of
four sweet and• interesting children, that , adorned
the cottage home of tender • and loving parents.
Little Mary, although ,utteriy , unconscious of pos
sessing any personal attractions, was gifted with
many which shed a lustre upon her happy home ;
and although she was 'only in her fourth year,
her superior memory and quick perceptive)
faculties were wonddrfally manifet,sted by com
mitting verses of Scripture . and Hymns, &o.
The 28d Psalm, (214th Hymn,), which she
often repeated, was her favorite. But Death
marked her as his victim, and rudely snatched;
her from the hosom of tender parents. Those
sparkling beams of that bright eye are forever
dimmed, and darkened; the sunny smile that
played around her lips, is forever chilled. That
fiirm which was so dear to her friends, is now
laid low in the cold embrace of dreamless rest, in
the deep, dark gravil Bat why mourn for this
dear little "lamb," consecrated by baptism to the
great "Shepherd of the flock," who said, " Kieffer
little children to come unto me, and forbid them .
not, for of such is the kingdom of heaven." since
she has gone to, a:happier home in the " better,
land," where sorrow cometh not, and hopes are
not rudely blasted.
DIED—On the 19th of June, of erysipelas fever,
at his resideece in Green Township, Harrison
County, 0., Mr. ALEXANDER W. TAGGART, aged
88 years and 2 months. •
His sufferings were somewhat protracted and
severe, but were borne without'a murmur. Dur
ing the first stages of his disease, his mind was
calm, and,a well grounded. hope sustained him,
but without that assurance that he desired ; as
the time of his dissolution drew near, the clouds
were withdrawn, and with the bright prospect in
view, he gently fell asleep in Jesus. Doth the
Church and community mourn the loss of one so
early, called.away, and who in his life and con
versation was an ornament to both. The de
ceased was a child of . the Covenant, and was
early instructed in the Word of Hod, and in the
doctrines and polity of the Presbyterian Church,
in which his father was for many, years a Ruling '
Elder. Dr early life, the fruit of this instruction
was apparent, in a tenderness of .00nsoience,land
faithfulness in the performance of , the.; private
duties of religion. At the early age' of eighteen,
he 'made a profession of - hie faith in Christ, and
united with the church <if Beech Springs,. then
under the .pastoral cafe - of the late John Rea,'
D.D.'in whit . * he continued as a : worthy' and
emplary member until his-death. Mr. 'fagged
was a man of more than ordinary energy of
character. This was manifest in all his , under
takirge, whether'eseular or spiritual. ' Hiemotto
appeared to be, "What thy hand findeth to do,
do it with thy might." The church, the prayer
meeting, and the Sabbath School, all bore testi
mony to this ; while his unyielding integrity,
and;strict morality, evinced the sincerity of .his
zeal, and genuineness of his profession ; in an
intimate icquaintance of years, the writer has
never heard either impeached. His conscientious
performance of all the duties of religion, personal
and relative, made him an example to his fellow
Christians; he was evidently a growing Christian.
The Church on earth had marked him‘ for emi
nence, but her, glorious Head had marked him for
still higher eminence in the Church triumphant,,
and has now called' him tip higher. God'owsys
are mysterious to us. Why one` in the prime *of
life, and in the midst 'of usefulness, and• who
bid 40 fair for future' usefulness in - the Church
and world, is taken away, and others of us, worn
out almost, and of but little use here apparently,
either to the Church or world, leff; are mysteiriee
too deep for ns to fathom now; bat satisfied that
he will do all things well, 'we resignall into his
hands,' saying, the will'of the Lord be done. He
has left an amiable and affectionate wife and five
children, with a numerous circle of friends and
acquaintances to mourn his early departure from
their midst;• but satisfied that their loss is his
l anai gain, we bow in subraission. D.
