The Border Land.
hare been to a land, a Border Land,
Where there was but a strange, dim light;
Where shadows and dreams, in a spectral band,
Seemed real to the aching sight.
I scarce bethought me how there I same,
Or if thence I should paws again;
Its morning and night were marked by the flight
Or coming of woe and pain.
But I saw from this land, this Border Land,
With its mountain ridges hoar,
That they looked across to a wondrous strand--
A bright and unearthly shore.
Then I turned me to Him, is The Cruafted,"
In most bumble faith and prayer,
Who had ransomed with blood my sinful soul,
For I thought he would call me there.
Tet nay; for awhile in the Border Land
He bade with patience stay,
And gather rich fruits, with a trembling hand,
Whiltite 'thud its gloom. away;
Ha has led me amid those shadows dim,
And shown that bright world so near,
To teach me that earned trust in him
Is "the one thing needful" here.
And so frout,the land, the Border Land,
I have turned me to eartlkonee more;
But earth and -its works were snob trifles, nannedl
By the light of that radii*, shore!
And. oh I iliwttid•they ever pciesees me again,
• Too deeply in heart and hand,
I must think how empty they seemed, and vain,
From the heights of the Border Land. ,
The Border Lanni had depths and valeta,
Where Know for sin was known ;
,Where small seemed great, as weighed in seeks,
Held by God's band alone;
'T was a land where earthly pride was naught,
Where the poor were brought to mind,
With their scanty bed, their fireless cot,
And their bread, so lard to find.
But little I heard in the Border Land
Of all tbst passed below ;
The once loud voices of human life
To the deafened ear were low.
I was deaf to, the clang of its trumpet call,
And alike to its gibe or its sneer.
Its riches were duet, and the lose of all
Would then scarce have cost a tear.
I met with, a, Friend in this Border Land,
Whose teachings can come with.power
the blinded eye and the deafened ear,
In aillintion's loneliest hour.
" Times . of refreshing" to the soul,
. In languor, oft hit brings,
Prepares it,then to meditate
On high and glorious things.
Oh 1 Holy Ghost! too often grieved
In health and earthly haste.
I bless those slow and and silent hours -
Which seemed to run to waste.
I would not but' have passedlbese ad depths,"
And such COMIIIniOII knotrn,
As can be held in the. Border. Land,
With thee, and thee alone.
I have been to a land, a Border Land!
May oblivion never roll
O'er the mighty lessons winch there and than
Were graven on my soul
I have Imodden - a path I did not know,
Safe le my Saviour's hand ;
I can trust him for all the future, now
I have been to the Border Land.

its sale will continue until it occupies a prominent

This is beyond all comparitionf,the most perfect
edition of ihe works of Leighton that has ever
been given to the public. In its preparation the
latest London and Edinburgh editions were used,
and as it wasTound that the Scotch copy contained
matter which was omitted, in the English, and on
the other hand the English :work comprised, ma
teriels not inserted in the Sootch issue, a perfect
one was made up from them both. Then, again,
the great desideratum of an index was wanting,
anfi.this bas been prepared with much care, so
that this magnificent volume is every thing that
the admirers of the great Leighton can desire.
It only remains , for us to indicate the contente,

The cause of truth is like a fortress assailed
from different points, by a watchful, relentless,
and'• unprincipled enemy. At one time one bas
tion is assaulted, and the prowess of the defend.
era is tested at that point. The assailants driven
back, ere long the trumpet is heard leading on
the attack against another point, and thither the
defenders, have to assemble and repel the foe.
So the, contest rages. At one time Astronomy,
at another Chronology, then again Geology, and,
later still, Ethnology have been the towers on
which the assaults of skeptics have been made.
The work before us is a noble defence—it is more

in connexion with the two equally ponderous vol.

equally large and judicious work on the Ministry

This volume brings the history and biography
down till May 1740. We have 'already adverted
to the general character of this work, and in ref
erence to the volume before us, we have only to
say, that in.style and sentimentit bears the fami
ly Carlylean likeness. In this life of Frederick,
the . author evidently feels himself at home. The
subject is one that eminently suits his peculiar
genius, and the amount of erudition that he dis
play; connected with the personages and events
which come under his notice, is truly wonderful.
In a short parentheses of a few words, rudely
thrust into a sentence where no one exrcted a
break in the narrative, he will give as it were the
contents of volumes. Thus in a few words a chair
eater is sketched, a region of country described,
and bymeins of this rough and uncouth, rugged
but most tolling and attractive diction, the reader
is enchained to the work, and fascinated as by a
spell. The public will wait with much expectan
cy for the appearance of the remaining volumes.

We are inclined to think that this is the most
important work which bag ever been published in
any land, on the , fearful demoralization which
prevails in large cities. The subject is one which
demands constant attention on the part of all
those who, as members of City Councilsi, Mayors,
and Pollee Magistrates, have to ilo with the ad
ministration of justice or civic duties in large
tonne. It bears directly on the property-holder,
on the Labor question, on Public Health, and in
Cities such as London,. Liverpool, and New York,
it rises up into,an importance of most distressing
and ominous character. We do not desire to en
ter at any great length into the subject of the
book. &i.e. Report, it is well and clearly, written.
The information giyen is most valuable relative
to the prevalence of this vice, and the 'horrors
that follow in its train. Truly the way of the
transgressor is hard, as this telling volume demon
strates. To all persons in authority, or connected
with the management of Charitable Institutions,
this book will be a valuable acquisition.

it is a work the scholar and man of taste will
ohoose for the library, and which the Christian
will place on the table for family reading and

one, of the most prolifio and graceful writers,

doctrines of the Gospel are discussed and illus

held by Presbyterians, are not ignored, but are
presented as the truths which " conduce to the
very lite of the . soul." Of them, the author, in
the preface, says : "My profound conviction of
the verities here proposed, waxes stronger and
stronger, with a corresponding earnestness to
diffuse and impress them." The sermon on " Our

Horace Bushnell. New York : Charlei Scribner.
Pittsburgh : John S. Davison. Pp. 528. 1858
Dr. Bushnell has long had a high reputation
as a close student and vigorous writer. And
although some of his opinions have been regarded
as "theological novelties," as they undoubtedly
are, his writings have been widely read. The
present seems to be the maturest, as it is un
doubtedly the ablest of all his works. The lan
guage is somewhat ambitious,, and some of the
positions taken are not the ones on which many
other able defenders of the truth would have
made their stand, nor will. the orthodox reader
by , any, means .adopt all the sentiments of the
author. But notwithstanding these defects, ,this

pel history, and the claims of. the Christian, reli
gion against the prevailing forms of infidelity.
It is an•able and phildsophical verification of the
iupernatural facts of • the Gospel history, against
the bald and skeptical Naturalism now so rife in
educated eirolee, and pioduetive of such fearful
evils to many. The great object is to show upon
philosophical principles, and, from the indications
of nature, that the Christian salvation is a Divine
work, "both in the matter of Christ's mission;
and in the inward application of it to the soul."
It will be seen from this that the. author is grap
pling with the most giant form-of unbelief now
prevalent, ana which has for its followers some
of the ablear, as well as. some of the moat ma
lignant opponents of the glorious Gospel. The
systems of Spinoza, of flume, of Modern Pan
theism, of that arch-infidel Strauss, of Unitarian
lam, and of Parker, are examined and 'confuted.
And no where else will the general reader find a
fuller or more distinct statement of these and
ether systems of unbelief, while the refutations
here given are eminently suggestive of lines of
argument different from that pursued by the
author. Pastors and intelligent Christians should
examine these errors, that they may be able to
meet and overthrow them, for in some form or
other they are to be found in almost every neigh.

Tower of a- Wife's . Love.
We find a touching and remarkable exam
ple of the power. of a wife's tenderness, in a
record of the life of William Smith, late a
Senator of the United States from South
Carolina. Judge Smith having recently de
ceased, the incident we refer to, appeared in
a biographical sketch in one Of the papers;
and, we insert it in the Presbyterian Mag
azine in a somewhat condensed form.
William Smith was elected a judge, in
the place of Judge Trezevant, who had died
the February preceding. He was President
of the Senate when elected, and was a law

the Middle, now called the Northern Cir
He was born in North Carolina, but when
or where, I have been unable to ascertain.
He migrated to South Carolina, and settled
in York District, when very young , and
He was educated in part, probably by the
Rev. Mr. Alexander, the able teacher and
minister of the Presbyterian faith, at Bub
lock's Creek, and finished his course at the
Mount Zion College, Winnsborough. While
at Mr. Alexander's school, he met with Gen
eral Jackson as a schoolmate, and no doubt,
when the two noble Romans met at Wash
ington, tut President of the United States,
and Senator from South Carolina, they met
as friends in early life, and friends in all the
fierce political strife's to which our country
had been and was then subjected.
At thirty years of age, Mr. Smith began
the study of law, and as three years was then
the prescribed term of study for the gradu
ate of a college, he must have been thirty
three years of age when admitted to the
He represented his early life to an intimate
friend-.---Col. Thomas Williams, formerly of
York, now of Montgomery, Alabama—" as

He had the rare blessing to win the love
of one of the purest, mildest, and best wo
men, whose character has ever been presented
to the writer. He married Margaret Duff.
"In his worst days she never upbraided him
by word, look, or gesture, but always met
h:m as if he was one of the kindest and best
of husbands. This course on her part hum.
bled him, and made him weep like a child."
This• sentence, it is hoped will be remem
bered, was the language of Judge Smith to
the friend already named, and to those who
knew the stern, unbending public , character
of the Judge, it will teach a lesson of 'how
much a patient woman's love can accomplish.
He was at last reformed by an instance of
her patient love and devotion, as he himself

Mr. Smith was not in his office—he was on
what is now fashionably called a spree, then
a frolics. Mrs. Smith received the notes,
and sat down in the office to the work of is
suing the writs and processes. She spent
the night at work—Mr. Smith "in riotous
living." At daylight on his way home from
his carousal, he saw a light in his office, and
stepped in, and to his great surprise saw his

ought to have been his work, with her head on

"This promise," says my friend Col. Wil

Judge to him, "from that day, everything
which I touched turned to gold." " His
entire success in life," says Col. Williams,
"he set down to his faithful observance of
this noble promise."
No better eulogy could he pronounced on
Mrs. Smith than has just bean given in the
words of her distinguished husband. The

be inspedted , by the Prince Consort, and a

weighs 7 tons newt. 81b., its length is 13i

At Pittsburgh, the advancement in glass
manufacture bas- gained most rapidly, per
haps, and they now make table glass from
materials much superior to those used even
two years ago, attaining as much brilliancy
as is found in the cut glass of Belgium. ,
At Pittsburgh, the progress of glass man
ufacture has been more marked than else
where, not because it possesses peculiar ad
vantages, but because, by the fortune of
having several enterprising men in the busi
ness at an early day, it attained a high po
sition, which it has been the pride of later
proprietors to keep up. Glass manufacture
began there as early as 1795, and as early
as 1808 it began making cut and flint glass.
There are now two large eatabliahmenta
manufacturing pressed &atm for table use,
the sets of which, on exhibition at the
Franklin Institute, will compare favorably
with foreign cut glass, and are far superior
to the foreign pressed.

exhibited, to be equal to the French and

art has been put to such uses .bere is con

Manufacture of Paper.
'Various substances have been, of late
years, employed as a substitute for rags in
the manufacture of paper. Among these
are different kinds of grass, basswood, and
other articles; but experiments have not
yet been successful in discovering a material
which would obviate the necessity, of relying
upon rags. The importance of the subject
may be inferred from the fact that the eon
suniption of paper in the United States is
about three hundred millions pounds
annually. This amount would be greatly
augmented if paper could be manufactured
cheaper. In this country, brown papers are
extensively used fOr envelopes, wrapping
purposes, &a., and in the manufacture of
these, substances are employed almost un
known in Europe ; straw, the waste from
palm-leaf manufactories, wood-shavings, and
other materials are resorted to. • Besides the
rage gathered at home, the United States
imports them from twentyrsix different
countries, Italy'being the greatest source of
supply--sending us about one-fifth of the
whole amount. The consumption of paper
in this country is equal to that of 'England
and France combined. In France, with
thirty.five millions of inhabitants, only sev
enty thousand tons of paper are prodnced
annnally, of which one•seventh is for ex

WE beg leave to call the atten
tion of the Trade, and more
especially the Physicians of the
country, to two of the most popu
lar remedies now before the public.
We refer to
Dr. Chas. Illane's Celebrated
Vermifuge and Liver Pills.
We do not recommend them as
universal Cure-alls, but simply for
what their name purports,
THE YERMIF U GE,
For expelling Worms from the
human system. It has also been
administered with the most satis
factory results to various Animals
subject to Worms.
THE LIVER PILLS,
For the cure of LIVER COMPLAINTS,
BILIOUS DERANGEMENTS, SICK,
HEAD-ACHE, &c. In cases of
FEVER AND AGUE,
preparatory to or after taking Q u i_
nine, they almost invariably make
a speedy and permanent cure.
As specifics for the above men
tioned diseases, they are Unrivaled,
and never known to fail when ad
ministered in accordance with th e
Their unprecedented popularity
has, induced the proprietors,
to dispose of their Drug business,
in which they have been success
fully engaged for the last Twenty
Years, and they will now give their
undivided time and attention to
their manufacture. And being de
termined that Dr. M'Lane's Cele
brated Vermifuge and Liver Pills
shall continue to occupy the high
position they now hold among the
great remedies, of the day, they
will continue to spare neither time
nor expense- in procuring the Best
and Purest material, and com
pound them in the most thorough
manner. Address all orders to
FLEMING BROS. Pittsburgh, Pa.
P. S. Dealen3 and Physicians ordering from others
than Fleming Bros., will do well to write their orders
distinctly, and take fag= but Dr. -1174nes, prepared. by
_Fleming Bros. Pitasbeengh.„ Its. To those wishing to give
them a trial, we will for Ward per malt, post paid, to any
part of the United. States, one box of .Pilla for twelve
three-cent postage stamps, or one vial of Vermifuge for
fourteen threecent stamps. All orders" from Canada mud
be accompanied by twenty cents extra. -
