This work. is regarded as the organ of

one who regards unity, of sentiment as a rep

regularly, without being convinced that the
'Old and Now School should continue Still as
distinct religions organizations. In rainy
things t,he two bodies agree, but , in some
things—some very important dootrineii—
they are widely diverse.

Archbishop Hughes has given notice that hence
forth the Record is to be considered
his official organ, and disclaims any responsibili
ty for the contents of any other Boman Catholio,
, paper in the city. He says that the Record is to
be kept entirely free from any connexion what
ever with political questions and political parties.
The Archbishop is a skillful tactician, and in the
present unsettled condition of political parties, it
is not at all improbable that he acts In this way
that he may be able to take advantageieany
move on the political chess board likely to inure
tstAie benefit of Romanism. It would seem from
this, that the Freeman's Journal and McMaster
are , left to their own fate, for thopresent at IPast.
Tho Archbishop's intermeddlini with politics in
time past, has probably taught him a lesson that
will render him more careful in the future.

- The North American recommends the establieh
ment of a line of steamships between this airy
and Poitland, Maine, to connect with the line of
steamers between Liverpool, England, and Port
land .and Quebec. That . well informed and
judicioni paper says :
In case of the successful inauguration of such
a line to '
Philadelphia, goods may be shipped
hither from Liverpool in bond, and transferred at
Portland to the decks of steamers bound to
Philadelphia, without being subject to the delays
of the custom house, which at. New York are
very onerous indeed.• ,
In addition to tine, Portland commands a trade
with thinada, and the other British provinces. as
well, as with the interior of Maine and New
Hampshire, whloh is' fast becoming of value to
Philadelphia. and this , alone would render it
quite desirable to have a line of steamships be.
tween the two ports. Many large Manufacturing
establishments; havinragencies here, are located
there, and Mould be tributary to this line, and
there cannot be a doubt that a large additional
trade would also spring up, consequent upon the
increased frequency Of intercourse. It is, there
fore, not to be overlooked that we ought to hive
a line of steamers tO . Portland, and if once begun
under 'proper ' , auspices; 'and - -; with the 'prospects
above referred to, there is. every. reason Jo .lat--

In your notice you represent the receipts as
being less than the expenses. The-labors of thie

expenses are nothing. All the money received,
$337.4a, except three dollars for &Bible presented'

paid to the : Pennsylvania Bible Society ; and the
Managers only regret that the sum was less than
usual. This Bociety has been in operation more
than thirty yearmAul...has, in a measure, been
absorbed by younger and larger Associations.
But it thought expedient and appropriate, that.
it should still occupy :its ground, and go side by

important that this correction should be made,

are so closely scrutinized:l •
