in an unusnal,degree; he enjoyed:,,the 'confidence

His piety no one doubted, for he was a living

',assemble, timsolf,-, with _others; as. themanner of,
aoine is. The interest of his own bitureiienlisted"
his deepest feelings, and called forth his most
; earnest efforts.. For several years he held the
office of deacon, and in this capacity he sought to
do his.whole duty,
_regardless of; his own personal
interests and convenience. The Boards of our
Church received his active arid liberal support,
and in ids sphere (and he,never tried to go ont'i,f

The deceased was the third child'of

promise, possessing talents far superior to most
others 'of his age. Gentle and affable in manners,
and in his intercourse with society, he was firm
of 'purpose, neversaorificing the right to the ex
pedient. No one could 'have been more' ndeared
to a family than he was. One of his leading
characteristics was an entire unselfishness of dis
position, which'always led him to prefer the feel
.and conyonisoces of Ahers, to
his own. 'He was a,most affectionate and dittiful

The' disease` Which, in the Mysterious providence

, dysentery.. Her 'sufferings, which were
treef, she . endured with patience and resignation.
Of this event, we haye just grounds for the As
ittersinee that, " though many fall as sudden, few
as safe.' She was a consistent, exemplary
Christian. Brought early into the. covenant in
connexion with Long Hun Presbyterian church,
she adorned the doctrine of her Divine Master
'by an -amiable, quiet unobtrusive' piety. "But
;her work on'earth :was 'done, and Jesus has taken

!whilst her friends are weeping over their loss,
which is unspeakably great, sheds, , trust, re
joieing before the throne. This affliction has
fallen with peculiar weight/upon a bereaved bus
'timid, sister, and three motherless children, not
only because of the many virtues and excellences
of the deceased wife, sister, and mether,.but also
becanse of its suddenness, and the peculiar do
mestiti habits and attachmenti of the family. In
short, .as a. member of the Church, she was truly
, consistent; as a wife, words would fall to express
the estimation in whidit she was ,held by a be
reaved husband; as a sister, conciliatory, kind,

&nee with God of 'which he had often heard
others speak., Lashed.. him to, state his feel

years 'he had' been aCthe feeC'of Jesus;

The congregations at'tire church `were
very large 'during all the; ;days of our ser,
vices—especially was .tbAs :true of the Sab
bath. And am sorry to say that some who
attended, seemed .to have come as a mere
matter .of amusement, for their deportment
was ,anything else than devotional. But,
strict decorum characterized the great mass
of all that assembled in and about the house
for all could not get in. And perhaps some ,
allowance is .due to such young, people as
really do not know how to behave on such'
oiroagions, :never having been taught it by
*ants, or school' teachers, or,ministers, or
.843y - bedy ; and. whose-highest- idea' of
•the• celebration of the Lord's Supper, is
each as the vain and ignorant in all commu
midis haire'd a camp•meeting, arr . Associa,:,
den or some other so•called
4or I do hold, and can prove, that such nom
inally religious meetings have often, if not
Aways, a very demoralizing and corrupting
influence, on the minds ,of many of the per

On Monday. .an election for elders was
held. in this' church, and itialtcd in the
choice of four excellent Men': to fill Whir
highly ):esponsible "office: Of, axle, two
were men of . middle ,age,• and two were
comparatively young; one of whom was one
of , the,firstsseals to my ministry. 0, that
God would give me many such.
If these brethren. gee fit to accept the
fioe to which they' have been chosen (as I
trust they may,) then will this church be
blessed with.an eldership as efficient as any
other churehin cm,.Pc . eshltery. , It is ru
mored that:OW - of-the former elders has been
left e hy.theAleath of a'friend in Ireland, an
eetittri.:Of 'error two millions of dollars. It.
in to be hoped, Hi "gets it, he will use it
in the iiiOrroAiOn of, the glory of God and
the good of men. ,
This people gre'atly, need a new church
edifice:--dne of large dimensions, and more
in keeping with the spirit of the age, than
that in which they now worship. After the
election of elders on Monday, the incipient
steps to such an enterprise were taken, and
.deubtlesio before long, the' work , will be Un
der • anitract. I know of no brother that
hananoie reason to be encouraged than Rev:

And I pray God that. the. rising generation ..

where they will find worke.of obillty enough

But Thursday morning; the: boat semen—,
on we get,, and off, we •go: for home., ~the
;boat was _ oomfoitablq.idthough• not quite
.equal in ,strength, siie, and magnificence,tos
the ev i er ; ilicrnorabla !Byr.ip ; and ,
'the Muskingum was:fiesutiful, although no
larger than a,millponfl‘rhen. compared with
the Mississippi. TheAtiy, too, was lovely,
so that our, trip up, in' - Zanesville' was truly'
pleasant. - r spent my time on deck, and
viewed, With mush interest, the narrow , road
that meandered along the Eastern shore of
the stream, _well remembering how that, ten
years agc,,l„ knew a young minister, just i
licensed, that rode sad and lonely down this
ahote,.on:a,borrowed horse, with a borrowed . !
saddleand saddle-bags = with a thread bare
coat and an old hat-?.-pitOhed boots and
soiled shirt—two sermons,, no books, and
one dollar in money in his pocket, and that
borrowed; and when I remember where
God was then leading him, , what work ke ,
was then preparing hiui to do, what he has ‘ I
since enabled him to see and to accomplish, I
did feel that no young man ought to be afraid
of the ministry, or of poverty, after this. .
Grace and energy are omnipotent. While
reflecting on this young minister's career, I
. thought of the place where he was born—of
the society in which be was brought up. I
found, that from a single school district of
that community, not leas than seven Pres- I,
byterian mioisters had gone forth to preach
.-the everlasting Gospel, within a compare
.tively short time ; and besides these, this
district could boast of five more , regular
graduates, all of whom will doubtless, before
,long, be the public! ambaisadors of Christ.
Then will twelve families 'in one small dis..-
,mot, have given to the Church twelve min
isters ! - All Calvinistic ministers, too, and'
yet, there never was a Sabbath School in
the' district, 'or a publie prayer-meeting
either, : fio far as I know; but there was
always family worship,' and strict family
'discipline in every family;" for there was
not so lar avny•memory serves me, either
non-proleionng,..w an 4rminian family, in
wholii,distriot.. The. Sabbath was strictly
Atept; 'and, the Shorter Otitechisna carefully

On Friday I got home, and learned that

before, and although the 'pastor was una

Nearly the whole of a large edition of this 'work has been
""exhausted by orders in advance of publication. Nothing
need be said of It save that it possesses the same fascination
for the reader that characterises the author's other works.
' • . [From the Boston Journey

simply the translucent medium for conveying the choicest
• beadties of- rare scientific knowledge; for accurate, ynt
brilljantaketches , each of whose subjects stamps itself upon

,warm, healthful emotions." •-
[Fiom the N. Y. Evening Post.] •
• "The work displays the'great Geologists strong, cot:ewer
hensive sense, his keen observation of nature, his learning,
and terse and graphic simplicity of style, which imparts a
high and peepliar value to all his writings. • * • On
'the whole. We think this volume is likely to prove the most
.popular of all the writings which the philosopher Of Scot•

_ - - -
From the Phila. Bresbyterien.l
^" The work has a double charm of a scientific treatise of"
high merit, and a glowing and moeteloquently written net ,
relive of travel."
. • [From the Boston Cfrurier.]
"It has those marked and characteristic merits which
have given to Aim previous publications of the lamented
-writer so wide a circulation, and so enduring, a popularity.
indeed we predict for the present work annnusual degree
of public favor, because there is in it so much of animated
'descillition and spirited narrative."
[From - the Christian Regletercl "
"The writers' style has almost become a proverb, for
perspicuity; terseness, and strength; which, with his keen
observation,, generous sentiments, and genial homer,
vertu peculiar charm to all hie works, and to none more so
than tothathefore us."
• ' [From the Eastern Argos.]
"To all intireStedin natural adiente,lind particilarly in
Geology, the book will. prove a rich treat. * * Inter
woven with the scientific information conveyed in a popular
style, is tbe interesting narrative of his tours, full oftinoi
