The enbjeot of this memoir entered upon
an ext' dimly° field .of ministerial and pastoral
labor, in this united charge of 'Rehoboth and

Mr. W was led to believe that here, a great
and important.field of usefulness lay before '
him. Bat though he was not altogether
diaappOintek the plan of two ministers work
ini in the same field, each with their warm
friends and admirers' • and yet altogether in
'dependent of each other, was productive of
much disadvantage to both these excellent
men.. Eventually, Paul and Barnabas had
to 'separate. After some years, though the
church grew and increased under this ande
simble, state of :affairs, Mr.. Wylie deemed it
MS duty to retire.
In, October 2d, ;1832, he was dismissed to
join, what, was then called the Presbytery of
Llneaster,' in ,Ohio. About this time, he
accepted a ,call to Newark, Licking. County,
where he liVed
,anci, labored, during the re
maining'Aieriod of his psstoial life, with
grpat acceptance and success He was e -
nentlyiniefid;ithin, Sustaining the cane -
ofOld School Presbyterianism, in the Synod
otOhio, during the eventful struggle ; twenty
years ago. The entire, territory embraced
by that Sypoil, was more or, less overrun
with New- Selionil theolOgY" measures; " :
men. Mr. Wylie's position, from the first,
'was decided and firm. At a time when• it•
was difficult to tell on which side were some
leading men of that Synod, no one was ach
'lois to know where Mr. Wylie stood. So
%clearly had he defined his position, and so
great was the respect cheiished toward him,
that he had the honor of acting as Chairman
at the organization of the first Old School
Convention r held in-. Philadelphia
About five years ago, on account of age and
infirmity, he 'resigned his pasteral charge,
though he did not remove from the place.
Not many years after he removed. to New
ark, he lost his first 'Wife, of whom we have
already given some account.. After several
years, his" children , having all .married and
left him, he married again, a widow lady,
Mrs. Moody, whose position, in regard to
her large• and respectable family, was some
wha like; his own. She was originally
from Portland, Maine, and had been a mem
ber of Dr. Payson's church, and one of his
spiritual'children. It is believed that this
marriage greatly contributed to Dr. Wylie's
happinetie and, usefulness. In the Fall of
1864, her health having, become feeble, he
was persuaded' by his step-son, George V.
Moody, Esq., of Port Gibson, Miss., to' try
the experiment of a Southern Winter, for
herAake. , Accordinglythey, repaired thither,
and at first much to the advantage 'of Mrs.
W.'s health. But she soon afterwards.,be

oeption of it. ,He was • also an excellent
talker, though, like the celebrated = Dr.
Dwight, he was apt to monopolize the con
versation. Of 'the latter distinguished man,
it is told that when on one occasion he spoke
of the remarkably pleasant evening he had
spent in a social circle, his wife remarked,
that she knew well enough, then, how that
was—that 4 , he had been allowed to do all
the talking " Mr. W.'s conversation; like
that, of Coleridge, too often became mono.
logues. Yet, ihen his mind was in a ; vigdr
ous and animated state, his thoughts in con-,
Yersation were often original andetiggestive..
His 'great fault, both in conversation; in.
prayer; and in preaching, was a too great
effort at strong and hyperbolic fOrins of ex
pression. This seemed - le"grow - upon him
with growing years. His prayers were often
any 'Mints:but 'oflthce plicity ;
of the Lord's prayer:, • Yet his fervent piety
was deep and constant, and threw.a radiance
and grandeur ' and attractive loveliness about
all, he said and did. Never -ins a man more
revered and respected 'by every class•of so

in awe of thim. • And yetlhere was nothing
stern or' repulsive about , :him:: Children'

ing, and affliction,' he greatly excelled. • He
was eminently a man= of prayer, and lived
near. to God. ~ W hat 'a wicked man once•

During the last tedious years of his One
tions, he was an eminent example of patience

As he neared the dark valley of, the shadow
of death, his peace flowed like a river.
He had long felt a " Canaan hunger," for
,Promised land. At length the hour of
his departure arrived, and on Saturday
morning, 9th of May, he was, dismissed
from the Church nSilitint, having nearly
completed the eighty second year of his life.
The writer of this humble" tribute to his
nunnery, had long been faVored with' his
friendship and •correspondence. After Dr.
Wylie lost his only son, the Rev Joseph S
Wylie. it ;was the privilege of the writer, in
some measure, to occupy the place made va
cant in the heart of the bereaved father.
Other circumstances of earlier date, not ne
cessary to be related, aided him also in se
curing this privilege. Hence a correspond
ence, by letters, was kept up for many years,
before. Dr. Wylie's death. Some extracts
from this correspondence will, we think,
better serve to illustrate the character of Dr.
Wylie, and ,to develop the tone of his deep
and fervent piety, than any thing we can
further add It will be, understood that

Notes of a Jaunt.
At the breakfast table' I asked the land
woman in the meridian of life—if
there weretnot a Campbellite church in ,that
place. She.. replied, " Once there was,• but
there is none now." "And what has become
of,it'?" " Its members have all beceme apir
'l. t "
Alia sI. ' I suppose you are not one of
them ?" " I am." "Did you adopt the Camp
bellite creed ?" " I did, and believed it"
" Were you immersed for the remission' of
.your sins ?" "I was, and soon afterwards
found that I was bun:bugged, and that all
religion is a piece of humbitggery " "Do
you believe the Bible to be the word of
God ?" "Not a word of it." "Do you
.teaoh it to your children ?" " Not a word
of it; it is not a suitable book for ebildren."
" Do you believe in the being of a God ?"
" Yes ; I believe in the God of nature."
"Do you worship him ?" "Yes." " What
is Jour God of nature ?" " Well, he a
great Being—l can't exactly describe, him."
" Madam, you appear to be, not only a spir
itualist, but also an Athenian ; (Acts xvii
28) your profession is two fold."
Breakfast being finished, I was soon seated
in an old "barroom'," with my wife and
landlady on the one side, and the landlord
and an old and young man on the other 'side
of me. " Landlord," said I, " your wife has
informed me that a considerable number of
your citizens first embraced Campbellism and.
Hthen Spiritualism; have you stood up de
feriae of the truth ?" " I suppose,"
he, "they had a right - to believe and' do as
The old man, with an air of superior dig
nity, said "Sir,as Spiritualism has proven
itself to be true, why do you not believe ?"'
'" Because, sir, it, has proven itself .to be a
lie. Your spirita have never revealed a new
idea' to the world that is worth a copper,
'and their revelations have been zad° up'of
nonsense l falsehood and blisphemY! I
gave him a few glaring specimens.
The' controversy then turned upon the
authenticity and genuineness of the Word
of God, which he rejected With scorn.
Said he, " You prove the Bible to be true
frOm- the Bible itself ;. you take the Bible to
,prove the,Bible—do you not?" "'Yes,..sir,
I prove it to be authentic - and genuine from
its internal and external evidences ; -and you
prove the Declaration of Independence to
be authentic and genuine from internal and
external evidences; and your proof fertile Dec.
laration' is infallible,. and mine for the' Bible
is•as. infallible ; do you. deny it, sir :P' :He
looked confounded. "You say you do not
believein the Bible ;' do you believe in the
.elistence'of a God ?" " I believe in' the
God' of nfitave" " Will you give me -
finition of his character?" ,Finding himself
"in the predicament of the spiritual landlady,
unable to•sarwhether his Godv was eternal
and hinniii'resent; I said, this,
:Deity is probably the' material universe?' and
his soul the laws by which it is governed;
is not this the Being whom you worship,?".
"'That, sir, is a tolerably correct definition."
"Xou, worship the whole of your God; ~do
'you 'not?" "O, certainly!' " Then 'you
worship the chair you, sit oa, dog's,
&e." i 4 I suppose." "And every worship
per bears sonic resemblance to the Being
whom he worships • does he not ?" "
—," said the landlady. " - Madam, don't
you know that you are liable to a fine of
twenty-five cents for every profane oath you
swear ?" •
The young man now came to the rescue,
as if victory had• already perched upon' his
infidel standard. "No man," saithe, "cao
prove, from the -Bible, that there is a local ,
hell. The Greek and Hebrew words trans
late& hell, are incorrectly translated!) , "Do
you understand Greek and Hebrew?"
"Enough' to :know that this word is incor

be so kind as to.tell me in what year James

became quiet When the gentleman had

The importation of rags for the purpose of
paper making is a great deal more extensive
than most persons mould imagine. During
the year 1857, we imported 44,582,080 lbs ,
valued at $1.448,125, and making 69,461
bales; 35,591 hales were from Italy, and
more than one third are entirely linen, the
rest being a mixture of linen and cotton.
About 2000 bales were also imported from
the free cities of. Hamburg and Bremen.
France prohibits the exportation.of rags, and
so does Rome`, the few which we get from
AnconaKa Roman province) being by special
permission on paytnentof large fees. Prussia
and Germany'generally impose so high an
export duty on.rags as to stop the trade en.
tirely. . The exports from Alexandria and
Shama are chiefly . collected in Asia Minor
by agents having license from the govern.'
ment,, and -the domestic demand must be
supplied before any
can be exported. It is
the same with Trieste, where only the sur
plus is allowed to come away The Trieste
rags are collected all over Hungary. We

First. The Character of the Work. It presents a new and
greatly improved system of notation. In it much that is
abstruce and difficult in thin delightful science is so simpli
fied, that months are made equal to years in the common
way of learning the practice of musical art; a fact suffi
ciently proven by the attestations of scores of teachers and
performers who have teetsd the system and given the work
its great popularity and constantly increasing tale.
Sexond The Quality and Style of the Music. Many new
pieces destined to pieces ss long as music lasts, may bo
found qu its pages, and also many of the old and tried
melodies, hallowed .from associated recollections of sanctu
ary delights, and tar more welcome to the heart of the wor
