BLACKWOOD ' S MAOAZINB.—The August number
h as eight articles, characterized by the spirit
that has breathed through Old Maga for so many
years- Prolessor Aytoun is still in pursuit of
Lord Mucanlay, and reviews severely the emi•
neat histoilans description of the Highland's of
Scotland. It is very evident that Macaulay does
not like the Scotch, and also that the Scotch do
not like Macaulay.
Tan Kutozsanooresa.—The number for Sep
tember is promptly at band. The contents are
instructive, witty, wise, and vivacious as usual.
The illustrations are well executed, and in admi
rable keeping with the character of the Magazine.
But we confess, that we would 'rather see old
44 Kniok" without any such embellishments, and
we hope , that the proprietors wilt soon banish
them, and let the reputation of their Magazine
rest solely on its literary contents, which are stif-
Solent for it now, as in. time past.

All over the North-West the work of threshing
the Spring crops going on vigorously. The
yield of wheat in the Northern portion of Illinois
is about equal to expectation; but toward the
central part of the State, the heads, on account
of dry weather, were not : so well filled, and the
yield is not so good as was anticipated. Oats
and barley are a fair yield—the latter having
escaped being stained by foul weather. The corn
crop throughout the Southern and central por '
dons of the State looks well, and the promise is.
favorable • but in some of the Northern Counties
—.Winnebago, Boone and Stephenson—the want
of rain has been felt. The same is true of pota
toes in the Northern part of the State, and the
stop there will be very small. The corn crop in
lowa is good; and in fact all over the North
West, with the exception of a few counties, we
hear of nothing but a large corn crop. Unless
the early frost injure it, it will be the largest crop
the West ever saw. The weather during the week
Las been moderately warm and slightly showery.
The Cincinnati Commercial of the 4th gives a

The Rev. James J. Marks, of Evergreen, hav
ing at the request of the inms.es of the s , Pitts
burgh Water Cure," delivered a course of lectures
upon Eastern Lands and Scenes, was presented
by them with an elegant silver Coffee Urn, a few
days since, with the accompanying address, by
Dr. Solomon Freese :
Rey, Mll. MAIMS At the request of the in
mates of the "Pittsburgh Water Cure," I present
you this Urn. It ie their epontaneous gift—an
bumble testimonial to the value of the lectures
you have been good enough to deliver to us here.
We have not only been pleased by your lectures,
but we have been edified as well; and as age ad•
vance upon us,.many of us will feel and know
that we are better and wiser men and women for
having heard them. We have only to regret that
the value of the testimonial is not greater, but
small as it is, rest assured that it is the offering
of grateful hearts. We hope you will not refuse
it. Take it, tend when you look upon it in after
years, when this now happy company shall have
been dispersed in all quarters of the globe, may
it Came you to think of, your many friends who
sojourned with' you at the "Pittshurgh Water
Cure," in the Summer of 1869, and of the pleas
ure not only yourself, .but'all of the members of
your family, afforded no in all your relations with
us, reiligiotes, social, and Irifellieffial. And in
conclusion let me express to you 'the radmiration
and esteem your worthy and accomplished lady
has produed upon our minds-by her lady like and
Christian deportment. In giving expression to
these feelings I know I am expressing the senti
ment of all who have mode her Acquaintance.
In the mime of the inmates of the." hnrg
Water Cure," I tender to you tibia testimonial of
their gratitude and esteem."
To this Mr. Marks responded:
" This is to me entirely unexpected. • I looked
for no reward for the lectures I. have .delivered,
but the hope they had ministered amusement and
imparted information. Indeed, I feel that they
were not deserving of such a testiinonial; for, be•
ingin pursuit of health, and subjected to all the
Tegimen of the Water Cure, there was hut
little time to collect the reminiscences of travel.
And the value of the gift increases the •rrgret
that I made no greater effort to make my lectures
ell that your kindness deserves. My family end
myself, came among you strangers; and the friend
ships we have .here formed, will remain golden
Enke in the chain of life. And, never at any wa
tering piece or scene of travel, have we found a
more delightful sojourn. Everything
,in tbe or
der, the kindness, the moral purity of the
managers and physicians, has given us the
greatest satisfaction and pleasure. The em
ery around us increased greatly the attract
tiveness of this place. The great hills, crowned
with their glorious unbroken forests, the" quiet
shades, the beautiful river, the murmuring wa
ters, all combined to give os backthe health,
end• the beautiful visions of our youth; and
gladly would we linger longer here,' did not
dutyoall us to other homes.
"I3e assured. my family and myself, can never
forget your uniform kindness, end this testimonial
of your approbation of my himble efforts, will
be looked upon as one of the most precious gems
of my hems, and sent down to my children as au

A Great Medicine for Females.
Hundreds of stimulants have been invented and
sold, purporting to be specific, in the various dis
eases and derangements to which the delicate
form of woman render her subject. The result
of all these stimulants has been to impart mo
mentary activity to the nervous system, and fable
vigor to the muscles ; but this relief has been
succeeded by a depression and prostration greater
than before ; and the repeated attempts of invalids
to build themselves up by these false remedies,
have finally ended in destroying what little vital
organization was left. But in using " Bmrhave's
Holland Bitters," you will ond no such disastrous
results. It is a purely vegetable compound, pre
pared on strictly scientific principles, after the
manner of the celebrated Rolland Professor, Baer
have. Under its influence, every nerve and mus
cle receives new strength and vigor, appetite and
sleep return, and finally, perfect health.

MUMS. FLRMING BROS. :—Gentlemen :—ln
consequence of the great consumption of your
"Worm Specific" in this plane and vicinity, we
have entirely exhausted our etock. We should
feel obliged by your forwarding, via Corning, N.
Y., twenty dozen, with your bill, on the reception
of which we will remit you the money.
From the wonderful effects of said " Specific"
in this neighborhood, there could be sold an
nually a large quantity, if to be had, (wholesale
and retail,) from some local agent. If you would
compensate a person for trouble and expense of
vending, I think I could make it to your advan
tage to do so. Yours, respectfully,

Book of Psalms. are carefully discuseed, and the yleweand
neages of the Presbyterian Church are fairly stated and
'vindicated. This le the only full discussion of the subject
which has been published.
[From Rev. Messrs. Paxton and Howard.]
We have permed with great pleasure, the "Letters on

them. The principal arguments of tbose who contend in
the exclusive use of " Rouse's. Persian," are fairly stated.

eminently Christian temper. These "Letters " All a gap

I have no doubt the work is such as is canes for by the
intim nay of the times. I, therefore, cordially commend it
to the perusal of "Zion's Mends and mire."
[From Rev. Dr. Patterson.]
I very cordially concur in the oapresslmia of artprOval
above quoted from the pasto 8 of the First and Second
churches of Pittsburgh, and from Dr. Pin mer.
