    s l obs th School. This NV iS not Satisfactory to a
minority in the bl. E Sabbath School, and they
resolved that they wou ld hold an independent
yio pie, rn the ft th, not Sabbath School Celebra
don. and they set to work to get it up, and sought
tte influence of members of the Presbyterian
ohuroh, and, among the rest that of our pastor,
Who has no sympathy in worldly amusements,
and in whose judgment we have every confidence;
but AM it was a matte connected with the inter
eats of the church and Sabbath School, be was
unwilling to give en answer until he had advised
with the Session and Sabbath School Superia.
tendent, that there might be the same perfect har
mony among us on this point that there is on all
other subjects. At that consultation it was unau
imously resolved, that as a church and Sabbath
School we could have n• thing to do with this pin
nio and that we could not, as consoientious
men, and t Mors of the Church of God, encourage
what seemed to us to be a spirit or rebellion in an.
other church, (viz. what we supposed to be the
minority endeavodug to circumvent the major
ity ) Neither could we see the propriety of
spending the entire day iu mere idle amusements
and eating, and giving the occasion the eanotity
of a Sabbath School Celebration We believe io
calling every thing by its right name.
We were opposed to it because it was an effort
to throw the garb of religion around what we
considered a mere party of pleasure, over which
we did not feel we could pray in our closets, and
we could not see how the proposed method of
spending the day could scope the glory of God,
and the spiritual. intellectual, and physical good
of those who might choose to go ; and any one,
without distinction of character h the privilege
to participate, under the general invitation.
We were opposed to this pie nio, because the
conditions of participation were, that each should
prepare for their own party or family according
to their taste and means, (the rioh in his abun
dance, and the poor in his poverty,) and eat imp
arately, remembering to prepare some more than
they would need, lest some might he there with
out preparations. This we felt was cau-ing die
tinotion and separalon on the day when all
should feel equality and union.
This is the history of that party who claim to
have been the Sabbath School Celebration of Ta
rentum, and who arrogate to themselves the title
of .ifriends of the mouse." Yon out easily judge
of their disinterested friendship fur the oanse, by
this brief history of their course, and their mis
etatement of the foots of the case.
These are some of the reasons why the Presby.
terian Sabbath School, as such, was not repro
seated there ; neither superintendent nor male
teacher, nor a single class of our Sabbath School
were among the party that spent the Fifth of
July au the Camp around.
Same half dozen of our young people who went,
went with the distinct understanding that it was
not to ba a Sabbath School Celebration, but a
regular pin nio,

An Imposition,
RIM. D. Mlittmai —Dear notice in
your last paper, some poetry, headed original ; as
the first line seemed familior, I read it through,
and find it compares with some lines on page 286
of the "Shawn," as follows: Thefiret two
in the first verse of each, are the same. The first
and last three of the second verse, are the same.
The last three in the third verse of .. A. E.," are
the 89MP, with the last three in the first verse in
the "Shawm." The fourth verse of A. E is the
same as the third verse in the "Stmm." The
remaining verse I have never seen before. If A.
E wrote the line" in the "Shawn," it is hardly
fair to publish them again without an intimation
of the fact, In the above comparison, I have not
noticed the refrain given in the Shawm " The
lines are found I believe in a little music book for
children sold by " !Auden." A.

The United Railroad.
We, last week, noted the election of J. Edgar
Thompson, EN President of the Pennsylvania
Road, to the Presidency of the,Pittsburgh, Fort ,
Wayne and Chicago, thereby uniting, practically,
the two roads. Of this union, the New York
Tribune says :
Mr. Thompson 'will be at the head of the long
est existing railroad line in operation. The Peon
sylvania Railroad of which be is now President,
and the Pittsburgh, Fort Wayne and Chicago
Railroad, of which be is President elect, which
together constitute eight hundred and eighteen
miles of railway, extending on the most direct
practical route from Philadelphia to Chicago. and
have together cost near $45 000,000. While the
organization and &official affairs of the two Com
panies will, with the ex iep lion of the Presidency,
be as heretofore distinct, the indueernents for the
selection of Mr. Thompson as head of both roads
were ample, as well in his high character and ex
perience as a railroad manager, as in the fact,
that the Pennsylvania Railroad Company is the
largest stockholder and bondholder in the Pitts
burgh, Fort Wayne and Chicago Railroad. and as
its natural ally, is most deeply interested in its
success. The work of construction of the un•
finished part of the Pittsburgh, Fort Wayne and
Chicago Road west of Plymouth, is in rapid pro
gress, and the grading and track layingso far ad
vanced as to Insure the opening of the road to
Ohioan° by the let November next. At the same
time that the line is oprneu from Chicago to Pitts
burgh, it will also, by arrangement with he Cleve
land, Columbus an d: Ciaciunati tiadroad Company,
be opened as a through line, without change of
cars. from Chicago to Cleveland, via Cretonne,
three hundred and fifty three miles, over a uniform
gauge, of which two hundred and seventy eight
miles are part of the Pittsburgh, Fort Wayne and
Chicago Road, and seventy five miles part of the
Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati Road. When
the revival of
.enterprise shall again set the
,streams of commerce in motion, the Pitt-burgh,
Fort Wayne and Chicago Road will be in condition
to do its share of the traffic due to its position.
Appropriations of Government.
Papers in different interests represent things so
variously, that it is no easy matter to obtain a
preoise knowledge of facts relating to publis af
fairs. The expenses of Government, however, as
is most manifest, are rapidly on the increase.
Having seen the following figures in several of
our secular exchanges, we give them as probably
nearly' correct.
The official statement of appropriations for the
Currant fiscal year of the general 'government, as
made up by the Clerk of the House, shows the

JtLY 28.—The course to b 9 pursued toward
Paraguay is now determined, having occupied
much attention of the Aminiotration. It is relia
bly ascertained that from the isolated po%ition of
Paraguay, and its diffi.inliy dueness, it is capable
of making vigorena reabitance to an outside force.
Independently of a few small vessels, mrmnting
altogether an armory of six or eight guns, Lopez
has three or four good steamers, recently con
structed in England ; and at an eligible point on
the river is a fort, mounting one hundred guns of
different calibre; he has a standing army of
twelve thousand men, and recently received from
England a cargo of arms and ammunition, and
has in his employ. tin engineers and ordnance
men, several French officers.
The Adminietration will send a fleet of six or
seven vessels, including the /Tarriet Lane and
Fulton. the former to be the Lig-ship. Com•
wander Page, who has been selected for the com
mand; has proceeded to the North, in order to
charter such .additional steamers as may be
adapted to the expedition. Although it is not
supposed it will be necessary to fire a single gun,
yet, in view of the defensive preparations of Par
aguay, it is determined our force shall be sufft•
oiently P.rmidebie to meet all possible contingen

China has appointed an official, of satisfactory

This is regarded at Hong Kong as an important
step toward an amicable arrangement of the diffi
culties between the contending parties.
The railroad companies with whom the contract
was made" to oar•y the mails between Washington
and New Orleanw 'four days, commencing with
the present month; have not yet performed service
within that time. This feline will doubtless en.
gage the attention of the Postmaster General
when he returns io Washington. It is caused
partly by insufficiency of the spans of transpor
tation over about seventy miles .of country be•
tween noDoished railroads from Goodman's depot
and Water Talley, no the Mississippi. The large
amount of mail matter wbioli has there accumu
late I, has, by telegraph, been directed to be sent to
New Orleans by way of the Miseisetnpi river.
It is not generally known that an offer is pend
ing from the Hntleon's Bay company, to dispose of
all their property in the United States to our Gov
ernment. Snob, however, is the fact. Coder the
provisions of the treaty of 1845. the C unplug own
and hold a number of forts, posts, and trading
houses situated in our territory, together with
large stooks of tunes, sheep, and castle. Lord
,N,ipier has been authorised to sell•the entire of
this property for tee sum of $600,000, which is
contitiered by competeutjudgee, to be very cheap.
Several meetings were held on the subject at the
State Department during the last Winter, and the
Seoretary of State was favorable to the purchase,
but there was a douht as to the disposition of Con
gress to make the necessary appropriation, and
therefore the sale was not effeoted.

CaoPs ttv Unarm —The last harvest reports
from the extreme West of Ireland are said to be
as favorable as could he desired. Grain end
green crops are in admirable condition. The
potato, too, is looking well, and the rumors of
blight are not credited.
Tam HARVEST Moow.--This year the harvest
mono occurs in August, rising for six successive
nights at nearly the same hour. The July moon
has also been of unu-ual intere4, and scarcely
inferior to the harvest moon, in those particulars
which give to the latter its distinction, being re

Steamboat Explosion.
The Faits City buret a cylinder bead, thirty
five miles below Memphis, a few days sive. The
accident occurred near Austin, while the passen
gers were at dinner, who numbered about three
hundred, and produced the greatest consterna
tion. They all rushed out, and one person states

Interesting debates occurred in Parliament on
the subject of the massacre at Jeddah.
Lord Stratford de Redeliffe, after dwelling on
the slowness of Turkish officials in rendering jus
tice, expressed the hope that, the rumor of the
occupation of Mecca, or the seizure of some pre
cious objects of veneration treasured within its
wails, had no foundation. He wiehed to know
whether her Majesty's government had received
any official advices of the massacre at Jeddah,
whether instructions had been iesaed for demand
ing full reparation from the Porte through the Brit
ish and Prenah Ministers at Constantinople;-and
whether, in case of wilful delays, adequate
MPARIlres were taken to enforce our jest dethands.
The Earl of Malmesbury replied that the necess
ary steps had been taken to demand immediate
redress. There was no intention of occupying
Mecca He trusted to be able to state what

The deceased, with the family to which she
belonged, had left Mercer, Pa., only a little more
than a year since, to seek .a home in the West.
Her lender age and amiable -disposition• afforded
no security against dissase and death. Though
she had never publicly professed Christ, she gave
pleasing evidence, in her last illness, of having
become a new creature in Christ Jesus, to whom
she calmly aim sweetly resigned her spirit.

Mr. Ferguson was esteemed by his numerous

.For many years prior to his death, he
was an exemplary member of the Pisgah Presby
terian church. He has gone, it is hoped, from
the Church militant to swell the ranks of the re
deemed who have washed their robes in tie blood
of the Lamb. He emigrated from Ireland in
1812. He was one of the noblest works of God
an honest man. His, great weakness was a hasty
temper, which be had great reason to regret, and
was often sorry for. He •leaves a wife and five
children, two of whom were with him at his
death, and three in the West.

I Mrs. Campbell was born in Washington County,
Pa., and united with the church at Mt. Pleasant,
Ohio, in 1816. From this place she wive(' to
Sou ham Ohio, and after remaining here for some
"time, moved into the bounds of Prospect church,
Illinois, where she lived beloved by all who knew
her. During °hint ten . days of' ker last'illness,
her sufferings were great ; but she bore all with
Christian meekness, being fully resigned to the
will of God in reloads' to her. She looked upon
the approach of death with calmness and compo
sure, giving directions to her husband as to c how
he should do after her depaytere, Mrs, Camp
bell was a kind and affectionate wife, and a tender
mother to her children. She leaves a husband
and four small children to mourn her loss. AB
her end drew.near, she was willing to go "to be
with Christ, which was far better," her faith
being firmly fixed on the Rock of Ages. On
being asked what inscription she wished on her
tombstone, she said, " A sinner saved by grace."
DIED—In Saltsburg, Pa., on the morning of the
15th of July; Alio. JEANETTE MOORS KIRK
PATRICK, in the 84th year of her age.
The deceased, an aged and revered member of
the Presbyterian Church, will long be held in
cherished and grateful remembrance by the wise
and good of her acquaintance. In early life she
made a public profession of the Redeemer's name,
by uniting with Congruity church, then under
the pastoral care of that worthy man and minis
ter of God, the Rev., Samuel Porter, and• was
greatly delighted and deeply interested in the re
ligious revivals of those times. The relent work
of grace throughout the land afforded her un
mingled pleasure; , and no aspect of it was more
attractive than that of gathering together the chil
dren of Jiada,h and of Israel, of the different Evan
gelical denominations, in union prayer-meetings.
She was given to hospitality;was warm. hearted, in
telligent, and pious, and uniformly aimed at use
fulness; and although the eye was dim; and the
natural force abated, the • theme of a Saviour's
wondrous love never failed to fill her whole soul '
with rapture. In prospect of death, she eras
wonderfully supported,' and waited' willingly till
the change came, and then, without a struggle or
a sigh, her liberated "spirit returned to 'God who,
gave it.
Don—July 21st, near to Frankfort, Hy., in the
25th year of his age, EDWARD, youngest son of
Edward APDonald, Esq., of Washington Co., Pa.
The deceased was reared in a Christian- house
hold, and for several years past has lived -a con
sistent, esteemed, and exemplary member -of the
PresbAerian Church. One year agate graduated
at Jefferson College, and soon after went to Ken
tucky, to take charge of a High School; but be
fore his engagement had expired, he was taken
with dysentery, and in about two weeks, and a
few hours before any of his relatives could reach
him, his spirit left the house of this tabernacle,
for, as we trust, the building of God in heaven.
He was a young man of most ateiable disposition,
of fine ability, an excellent scholar, and possessing
elements of character which gave great promise
of usefulness. One chief desire with him was to
be a thorough scholar and a successful speaker,
and hence for self-improvement, as much as any
thing else, he undertook the employment of
teaching. At the close of his College course, and
perhaps earlier, his mind was seriously consider
ing the duty of seeking preparation to preach the.
Gospel; but he hesitated in his decision, unable
to get clear of a deep and hindering sense of his
unfitness for so great a work. But the question
was of abiding interest, and after a more careful
search, he declared his purpose to relinquish
teaching entirely, and immediately commence a
,course of.. • . . • . • • •- •-•
his sickness, and to the last, he was meek, pa
tient, and resigned, and gave to those around him
satisfactory evidence of trust in Christ, hope in
death, and meetness for the inheritance of the
saints in light. The kind Christian friends who
watched over his sufferings with so much tender
ness and solicitude, have the hearty thanks of
surviving relatives, and we hope will have also
the reward of those. who minister to the sick, in
Christ's name. The bereaved and sorrowing
family have the pleasing thought, that„although
in this painful providence they were not permit
ted to offer to their son and brother the synipi
thies and offices of affectionate hearts and loving
hands, yet he was kindly and faithfully cared for,
and now "sleeps in Jesus," and him will God
bring, at last, to dwell with him forever and ever.
And oh let the young be persuaded by another
warning providence, to seek Jesus : with all their
hearts, that they be pardoned, eanotitled, and
prepared to meet God in Judgment.
