Chippewa Mission.
Ma. EDITOR :—Whilst at Bayfield, Wis.,
in eciMpany with the other brethren of the
Prepbytery, and several friends, I visited
the Mission amongst the Chippewa Indians,
at Bad River. The morning was pleasant,
the wind fair, and a few hours sailing on
the lake, and rowing up the winding Mush
ke•see•be (incorrectly translated Bad,) River,
brought us to the Mission buildings on the
Indian Reservation. The missionary, Rev.
L. H. Wheeler, gave us a warm welcome.
We were sorry that his excellent lady,
whose kindness bad made former visits sn
homelike, was absent, but glad to know that
she had left toil and trial in the wilderness,
to sojourn for awhile with the "loved ones"
away in the East.
• Col. Drew, Indian Agent for the West
end of Lake . Superior, was present, and
preparing to pay the Government annuity
to the Indians on this part of the lake.
From one thousand to fifteen hundred were
present, representing three thousand. Their
wigwams, of bark, matting, and balsam
boughs, were scattered in all directions.
And these sons of the forest might be seen
lolling on the grass, or leaning against the
sunny side of a house, smoking in listless
indifference, or engaged in some species of
gambling. They were peaceable and quiet,
and I saw no drinking. Generally, the
Indiana are a degraded looking race, very
different from the imaginings of those who
have read of them in our histories; but
amongst the band from Lake do Flambrau,
eighty miles in the interior, there were
some noble specimens of men.
The Agent called in, successively, the
chief of each band, who came with his
head man, and a little stick for each inch.
vidual under him, and from him obtained
the whole number of families, the number
of individuals in each, and the name of
its head; these are all written down, and
a complete roll made. An estimate of
the amount of money each is to receive, is
made, and the goods divided into packages,
and labeled.. This year, each received
$2.20 in money, and $3.00 in goods. The
roll completed, and the division made, the
payment proceeds. The first chief, with
his head man, is brought into the office,
receives his bundle and money, and remains
till his band are paid. Each is called to
the door by a public crier, and receives his
portion. Many of the names are emphati
cally jaw -breakers. I remember but few,
and these not by any means the hardest. I
give you a specimen : Na wa je.wun-os ;
A•ton•e-ge-zhek. When the bands were
paid, guns, ammunition, &0., were distrib
uted to the chiefs, according to the number
of his people, and each was clothed in a
new coat, of blue cloth, with satin lining
and gilt buttons, and belted with a red sash.
At the close of payment, a Counsel was
held, in which the Indians told their wants,
and their "Father," the Agent, gave them
good advice. The old aversion to labor still
remains amongst them, as they told the Agent
they did not want any more grub hoes, but
more guns, ammunition, and traps.
By the energy and system of the Agent,
the whole payment passed off quietly and
A vigilant police prevented the sale of
liquor on the ground. And by the compe
tition of the traders present, the Indians ob•
tained such goods as they needed at reason
able rates.
As soon as payment was over, the.lndians
left for their homes, some of them having
a hundred miles or more to travel inland.
It hardly pays to travel so far for the small
pittance they receive, and be exposed also
to the danger of losing it all for that ac
cursed thing, whiskey. Many of them
would no doubt be beset and robbed by men
who would sell soul and body to get gain.
These things in regard to what our Gov
ernment is doing for the temporal comfort
of the Indians. In my next, I will give
a brief account of the efforts for their spirit
ual good. Yours, truly, J.M.S.

Dedication, Revival, and Installation.
The Mansfield church edifice was dedicat
ed to the service of the Lord Jesus Christ, on
the third Sabbath of November, free of all
pecuniary inoumbrance. The dedicatory
sermon was preached in the morning, by Rev,
R. P. Farris, of Peoria, from Isaiah lvi : 7
"My bowie shall be called a house of
prayer." The house was filled with a very
attentive audience. The sermon was very
appropriate to the occasion. A very deep
and solemn interest was manifested.
In the afternoon, the Lord's Supper was
administered. Introductory service by the
pastor elect, prayer and distribution of the
bread by Rev. George Cairns, and distribu
tion of the cup and closing prayer, or thanks
giving, by Rev. R. P. Farris. After ser
vice, on Sabbath evening, an invitation was
extended to any who desired the prayers of
the church, to come forward; when about
twenty-five mime forward, weepinz, as they
came, to present themselves as living sacri-
floes to the Lord Jesus. Truly, it was a
house of prayer.
The Lord not only heard, •but answered
the prayer of his people, for in .the morning
the dedicatory prayer of King Solomon was
read and prayed, and now the glory of the
Lord filled the house. Such a visible ac
ceptance of a house of worship by the great
Head of the Church, in bringing these
youth, by his Holy Spirit, to offer them
selves up living sacrifices to himself, we
never before beheld. It was truly a melting
time to this little flock of Christ.
We continued our meetings On Mon
day evening others came forward to ask the
prayers of God's people; also, on Tuesday
evening, some others added themselves to
the number of inquirers; but numbers of
others, deeply anxious, did not come, wbo
we trust will yet come to Jesus. Most of
those who came, are children of the Cove
nant, and are now "rejoicing in hope of the
glory of God."
The first sensible indication of the pres
ence of God's Spirit among us, was at a
monthly prayer meeting, about mid Sum
mer, from which time we have kept up a
weekly prayer -meeting, which has been well
attended and very interesting. Besides our
weekly prayer•weeting, we have established
a prayer.meeting conducted by the young
Our meetings are still very interesting,
and the earnest prayer of his people is that
the Lard will continue the gook work of his
Spirit among us. We are much indebted
to those excellent brethren, Rev. R. P. Far.
ris, Rev. G. Cairns, and Rev. J. Winn, for
their labors of love during our meetings.
On the Monday alter the Dedication, the
pastor elect was installed. Rev. R. P.
Farris presided, preached the sermon, and
delivered the charge to the pastor. Rev.
George Cairns delivered the charge to the
people. S.

Under the first and third of the above
°lasses are included $3,290 from the Sunday
School collections in the same months. We
learn, also, that including these Sunday
School collections, nine hundred and twen
ty•eight churches, out of the three thousand
three hundred and twenty four which form
our body, have made contributions in whole
or in part during this period, to the treasury
—leaving two thousand three hundred- and
ninety six to give their aid in the remaining
five months of the mission year, which ends
as usual on the 30th of April.
In connexion with this statement, we are
thankful to mention that six of the students
now in the senior year of their Seminary
course, have been accepted as missionaries,
and others will probably apply for appoint
ment. Three of these are appointed to
China, and a missionary now in this country
expects to return to that field in the Spring.
Only one as yet is under appointment to
India, though we have reason to expect that
two others will apply for appointment to that
country. The field of labor of two of those
who are already accepted, has not yet been
fully determined.
We trust it has been in answer to the
prayers of the churches, that so many ap
proved brethren are expecting to go forth
as missionaries. And if so, we may believe
that Ile, who has heard the prayers of his
people in this case, will also enable them
to furnish the necessary means of sending
these new laborers to their work. The funds
for this purpose ought to be provided before
the end of the present mission year. The
expense to be incurred for outfit and voyage
will commence early in the Summer—at a
time when very few of the churches make
their contributions to this cause. We do
not ask for special collections, but we are anx
ious that our brethren should clearly un
derstand the case. Unless the regular con
tributions of the churches between this and
the 30th of April, should be sufficient to
meet the present current expenses of the
missions, and also to provide for the expense
of sending out these new men ; it will not
be practicable to send them out without em
barrassing delay. It will not be wise for the
Committee te.boreow money in order to send
forth new missionaries. We earnestly hope
there will be no occasion for any delay.
These laborers, and more, are greatly needed

they not be sent forth ?—For. Missionary.

Never, never neglect the Word of God;
that will make the heart rich with precept,
rich with understanding; and then thy con
versation, when it flows from thy mouth,
will be like thine heart, rich, unctious, and
savory. Make thy heart full of rich, gen
erous love, and then the stream that flows
from thy hand will be just as rich and gen
erous as thine heart. Above all, get Jesus
to live in thine heart, and then out of tby
belly shall flow rivers of living water, more
rich, more satisfying than the water of the
well of Sychar, of which Jacob drank. Oh I
go, Christian, to the great mine of riches,
and cry unto the Holy Spirit to make thy
heart rich unto salvation. So shall thy life
and conversation be a boon to thy fellows;
and when they see thee, thy face shall be as
the angel of Uoti. Thou shalt wash thy

that sit in the gate shall rise up when they

form of a tale, in which the incidents' of a girl's

Pittsburgh, Ft. Wayne and Chicago Road,
At 7 o'clock this morning, for the first time
" since the Creation," a through train of oars fur
the East is to trundle out of a railroad terminus
in the West Division. Glory enough for one
Christmas day, for our West Side friends, we
should say. Thanks to the untliuoihing and un
conquerable zeal of the managers of the enter
prise, the Chicago, Pittsburgh and Fort Wayne
Railroad stands to-day completed, and in one
unbroken line of railroad, managed by one com
pany, ties together the Garden City, on Lake
Michigan, and the City of Brotherly Love, nine
hundred and odd miles away.
And this has been accomplished for Chicago
without the slightest encouragement and aid as a
city to the company—without a dollar loaned, or
a bond executed. The undertaking has been
pushed during a period of unparalleled depres
sion and money pressure. It has triumphed over
obstacles that seemed to loom insurmountably in
its path, and to-day is here—another tie between
the North-West and the seaboard.—Chicago

Exports from the United States.
The export trade from the United States should
be diligently studied, not only by merchants for
profit, by statesmen for knowledge of the finan
cial condition of the country, but chiefly by the
people, that they may know the condition of the
national balance sheet, and the effect of the Tariff,
commercial laws, etc., upon their prosperity.
We give the aggregates of the export trade for
the fiscal years, 1866. 1867, and 1858, dividing
the statement into different products :
Products of 1856. 1857. 1858.
Bea $1,856,797 $3,739,6,14 53,550,266

Total $310,586,389 $333,985,065 $293,768,279
Comparing these statements it will be Peen that
the decrease in exports in the years 1856 and
1858 is chiefly in the agricultural products.
The difference in the exports for those two
years is as follows :
Total exports,
1856 $810,586.330
1858 ' 292,758,279

products for the same time, is as follows.

Increase of Wool in Ohio.
The Wooi-Grower, for December gives a tabu
lar statement of the numbei of sheep in this
State, showing 3,308,883 bead, which, at three
pounds of wool per head, is 9,826,490 pounds—an
increase over last year of ten per cent., or about
a million of pounds. The aggregate net increase
of the number of sheep in the State, inl.BsB.over
1857, is given at 32.100. More than one-half
the counties show a decrease in nuMber. The
number of sheep in Athens County in 1857, was
25,495; the number returned in 1858, was 22,-
643—showing a decrease of 2,852.
Increase of Beavers.
The beavers, being comparatively unmolested,
have begun to increage and multiply, and to re
appear in their old haunts. At a recent meeting
of the Canadian Institute it was stated that they
bad made their appearance in many places in
Canada, and were rapidly multiplying. Quite a
number are to be found within three hours ride
of Toronto, and they are to be seen in consider
able force in the Nottowasago river.
Interesting to Spinsters.
A. new kind of ig immigration" scheme is being
carried into -execution in Paris. The English
Australian colonies suffer from the scarcity of the
fair sex even more than the French colonies from
the want of negro labor. Several agents ,have
arrived in the French capital, and are offering
large premiums with the promise of a husband as
soon as they arrive at the antipodes, to all French
spinsters under the age of thirty. They have
collected about one hundred.
Guano Discovered.
It is stated in Washington tapers and letters,
that further large and valuable deposits of guano
have been discovered in the Pacific Ocean, and
formally taken possession of by citizens of the
United States, and that they have been recog
nized under the Act of Congress passed 1866.
Among these islands are Malden's, Arthus, How
land's, awl Christmas; .and at one of them there
is said to be a land-locked harbor in a lagoon,
six miles broad by twelve miles long, which is
entered from a bay outside, where ships can
safely anchor in seven to ten fathoms water.
Almost the entire surface of this island, more
than forty miles-long and fifteen broad, is reported
to be covered with guano from one to ten foot

speak of the gold as abundant. One miner
writes :—" Gold is found everywhere you stick a

it will pay from ten to twenty dollars per day to

Xedical Testimony Cannot be Contra
One of the most startling cases is narrated of
Dr. M'Lane's Yertnifuge by Dr. John Butler, of
Lowell, Trumbull. County, Ohio. The case was
that of a young lady who had been sick for eight
years, and had consulted a number of physicians,
who had treated it as one of Prolapsus Uteri.
Dr. Butler was then called in, and for a time be
lieved with his predecessors that it was a case of
Prolapsus. He was, however, soon forced to the
conclusion that his patient was suffering from
worms, and after much persuasion prevailed upon
her to take two doses of Dr. M'Lane's Vermifoge,
prepared by Fleming Bros. of Pittsburgh. This
medicine had the effect of removing from her
a countless number of the largest size. After she
passed them, her health immediately returned.
She is since married, and continues to enjoy ex
cellent health.
Purchasers will be careful to ask for DR.

Numerous• arrests have been made near Cork,

It is fully expected that the British Govern
ment will guarantee' new capital, amounting to
half a million pounds sterling, in aid of the Atlan
tic Telegraph Company, and that a new contract
for another cable will be immediately made.
Numerous political speeches had been made by
many prominent politicians, including Messrs.

ing for its object the invasion of Ireland by Amer
ican fillibusters.
The London Times contains the following intel
ligence in reference to the Atlantic Cable
The Company has made application to the Gov
ernment for a guarantee of 4/ per cent. on L637,-
000, subject to the same conditions as the Red
Sea Telegraph line, and this application has been
backed by memorials from all the leading firms of
London, Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham,
Leeds, Halifax, Bradford, Hull, Glasgow, Paisley,
and Norwich. If this application be granted,
contracts will immediately be concluded for anew
cable, and any negotiations with the American
Government which may be necessary, will subse
quently be entered into.
No attempt can be made, with any prospect of
success,,to lift the old cable, until the return of
calm weather at the end of April or May next,
and even under the best circumstances the expec
tations with regard to this operation are not fa:
vorable. Meanwhile, it has been definitely ascer
tained that the existing damage is not at the
shore end. The laying of the new end has been
completed to the distance of twelve miles out from
Valentia, and the portion taken up is found to be
in perfect condition for all purposes. The experi
ments lately undertaken by a person previously
connected with the enterprise, confirm the original
inference that the main fault is about two hun
dred and seventy miles from the Irish coast, at a
depth of nine hundred fathoms. There is also a
fault on the other side, which is thought to be
about three hundred miles from New Foundland.
Currents, however, still continue to be received,
although of a kind so feeble and uncertain as to
be useless for any practical purpose. At present
the telegraph is in charge of Mr- Henley,* who
is manufacturing an apparatus such as his expe
rience on the spot leads him to think may yet pos
sibly lead to some results, but in no case could
there be a hope of achieving permanent and satis
factory communication otherwise than by a new
line. The Times thinks that there is but little
doubt that the consent of the government will be
given to the application of the Company.

ELIZABETH, youngest child of William and Jane

An interesting child, •around whom were en
twined many affections of parents, sisters,
brothers—especially of one little brother, \ older
by two years, and blind, whose young life seemed
to be made up, in part, of hers, as they walked
and talked together, she leading the way, and
preparing the seat, and smoothing the couch—a
delicate' child, gradually declining for months,
yet called at last unexpectedly away in a violent
fit of coughing; a child of the covenant, sealed,
religiously trained, testifying that she was not
afraid to die, and, we believe, saved by grace.
Such, the brief history.

The Ninth Volume of the PRESBYTERIAN MAGAZINE edited
by C. Van Rensselaer, DX., will begin in January, 1559.
The value of a Religious Monthly as an ally of the Reli
gious Weeklies in supplying Christian literature for the
families of the Presbyterian Church, must be readily ad
mitted. The PRESBYTERIAN MAGAZINE will discuss subjects
connected with the Doctrines, Polity, Life, and 'Work of
the Church, with- a regard to a dne proportion .of missal
laneons and general reading.
The PRESBTRZILIAIf M6.6AZENN includes, in its regular
Monthly plan, Six Departments, Tin, Miscellaneous Com
munications, Household Thoughts, Historical and Bio
graphical, Review and Criticism, The Religious World, and
Fragments of the Day. Under. Review and.Oriticiam, the
Editor proposes this year to notice EVERY vow Mg AND
PAMPHLET issued by Presbytsrians, so far as they may
come within his knowledge, as well as to continue bis WNW
Reviews of books. In thislDepartmenr, as in every other,
his motto will be, as her4ofore, ":Independence now and
forever." Whilst a Magazine must necessarily follow, in its
general discussions, the course demanded by the events of
the day, the editor will be expected to exercise Judgment
and charity, as well as whatever skill may he at bia com
mand, in the selection and management of his subjects.
Volumes of 1858 are bound and ready kir delivery at
SL2S per volume; by mall, $1.50.
The price of the PRESBYTERIAN MAGAZINE is One Dollar a
year, always prepaid,' or Bix Copies for Five Dollars. All
who think well of the Magaiine, are invited to assist in its
