In its progress it burnt the Court House, the " Branton House," a Presbyterian,: an Episcopal, a Reform, and a Baptist church.

Howard's church, Second Presbyterian, on Monday evening, the 20th An eicellent 'address was made 'by .the. Rev. Mr. Mattoon, a Foreign Missionary of our Board, from Siam. At the conclu sion, an earnest appeal was made in behalf of a prayer meeting held at the Relief En ginen Honse,,on Pennsylvania Avenie. Supplying Vacancies. On our first page, under the heading, "A Field to Cultivate," are some good remarks on the subject of paying` attention to poor and feeble congregiktions. Every organized church is under the watch and care of a Preibytery, and , every Presbytery is bound to extend its care to each and all of its con stituent. churches; and it should be here, as in the family, where the parents pay the more 'aseiduous attention to the young and the feeble, and call upon the older , and more vigorous to render all needed and practica ble aid. All Presbyteries admit.this theoretically, but;practically' the work is not done. The feeble are hat to look after their own wants, , or 'perish. We say perish, because, hard as it may be kill a Preabyterian church, it is' not imPoseible. Many are becoming faint for Want Of nourishment, and every year some die Let 'Presbyteries awake. We commend the- article to which we haver alluded, to our younger. brethren. ' Itoteeted. The, imputation is often cast upon the South, thatlemale slaves are not protected, by law, against-their masters. The Central Presbyterian, 'of Richmond, Va., noting some matters' between the Nei Malt paPers, says : u The . penal statute by which the white and the free woman's chastity is pro tected, gives equal protection to the chastity of the Maya '.woman ';•- and its violation by the master, is not the slightest extenuation of the crime. Such is. the law, (in Vir ginis;) and we presume it is the same in every slave State` in the Union. The right of property, in a slave giyes no right to the wit tue of the slave, any more than it-does to the life of the slave." Having , copied, as an item of news, a miles orqUestions, put by the independeiti to the Observer, one of which may convey the injurious imputation, we are , pleased, on so full and satisfactory authority as the Central, to give a prompt refutatiork! An Interesting Scene. The,pastors and Sessions of the Presby terian Ouches of Louisville, lately decided to, hold a quirterly communion together in, oms of their, churches, going round the whole of the churches, as far as poesible, once a year. The first of this series of meetings was held, last Sabbath afternoon in the First Presbyterian church, at half! p a st threiveplock. The large house of wor ship was almost completely filled with tom municants, many of the members of other evangelical churches of the city being present, and partaking with them in the solemn and delightful services. We do not remember over to have witnessed a larger number of communicants at the table of the Lord at one time, unless, pethape, it may have been during the sessions of the Gen eral Assembly, or on some Inch public occasion as that.—Presbyterian Ratio of Increase in Chinches. The writer of a sermon lately published in New York, the object of which is' to strengthen the faith, of the Church in the itineramoy,,presents some interesting data in support of hie theory, He takes, several of the leading Churches .of the country and runs them through a comparison of results for fifty years—from 1800 * to 1850. He finds that the Protestant Episcopal Church had in 1800, 254 ministers; in, 1850 she had 1,526; ratio of increase, 6to 1. Con gregationalists at the , first period had 400 ministers, at the second 1,687 ; increase, 4 to 1. Regniar 'Baptists had 1,284"; at the end of fifty years, 5,142 ; increase, 4 to 1. Presbyterians, ON and New School were in ministers 300 strong; in 1850 they had 4,196; increase, 14 to 1. The Methodist Episcopal Church had at the first period 287 ministers, at the latter 5,646 ; ratio of in wean, a fraction over 19 to 1. The ratio of increase in the membership of them Churches during the same period is equally remarkable. Protestant Episcopalians had an increase equal to 6 to 1, Congregational ists a fraction over 2 to 1, Regular Baptists a fraction over 6 tol., Presbyterian's a flan= tion over 8 to 1, Methodist Episcopal Church nearly 18 to 1.--Pius, Chris. Advocate. Controversy on Romish• Indulgences." An'interesting controversy, of 'which our readers may desire some information,. was carried on during the last few weeks, be -o,nan ?ref- .1:1044,11914 the cefq,&,Y4),,9f this city, on the subject of " Indulgences," as belonging to the Romish Chnieh: On Thanksgiving day last, Prof. Jacobus delivered ; to his people a dis course on " The Christian Sabbath," in which—as he noticed the lax views of the Sabbath - obtaining among ne, he referred - to the 'loutish views, as they had been set forth in the Catholic—re marking, by the way, that, the Amish Church "could sell an indulgence to com- mit sin." The discourse was published, at length in the armlets. This drew 'forth the wrath of the :Catholie; but' without any 'explicit mention of the grievance 'Of whieh they would complain. Whereupon the Dispatch suggested that if, iestead ,, of mere denunciation, the Catholic would point, cut the, passages complained of, it would preba. bly find the Professor both ready and able to defend himself, and make his points good. The Catholic then undertook to specify the clause above cited, and this brought Prof. Jacobus forwayd to maintain his, position, that the Remit& Churoli as `everjr, one knows, has , trafficked ,in gences," involving the leave to commit sin for a price. The Catholic, of mune, denied some of the most' familiar facts ' Of history ef touching the rise of the P r o t es t ant Rolma tion, Dr. Jacobus , adduced testimony abund antly. ' The 'Catholic , then fell back. upon' their Catechism, to show thatthotigh infect there was an exchange of the indulgences for MONEY, yet the money was only " alms," and the indulgence was only ,a "remission of temporal penalty"--(including in what is "temporal," all the pains` of "par- , gatory," which sometimes stretch through twenty or thirty thousand years, as they pretend.) Still the Professor, brought for ;award historical facts, asagainst 'all•defini. tions. ' The 'Catholic 'demanded i "authori ties." The Preheat)* brought: forward'' the testimonies of Catholics of that time, charg ing the aboriainations upon , the Pope him self—that the building of St. Peter's Cathe dral was the fruit - of the " traffic," as all the world knows,' &c. Then the ". Catholic contended that the traffic was an " abuse" by the Pope's agents, for which, the Pope himself was not,reeponsible.' The Pope's own letter; wait then produced; showing that he recognized the traffic, and that 'he s had authorized Arohbishop,Albert to carry •it on in .Germany, and that ,the Pope drew on the bankers of the fund for a certain stun, "for a secular purpose, which was to be alloicir the Archbiehop 'in the final account i The Catholic then, excused the transaction by pleading that. the 'Arch bishop owed the Pcpe a debt, and paid His Holiness only what was due `to him • and that the,Pope had no right to overhaul the money transaotionnof his debtor! When it was replied that this was a loose , morality, the Catholic answered that, in all probabil , ity. the Pope, trhen'that,letter was written, had not yet . heard of the abusee, there being no railroads nor telegraph's in operation at the "timed ana it was only, a , month after lather's Theses`were posted at Wittemburg. Moreover, the Catholic insisted much on the intimation of D'Aubigne, that the. Arch bishop (the'Pope's ; debtor,) had paid his debt before. the Indulgences were published. This - seethed; indeed, a happy= escape, a's it indicated that that debt ;to .th6` . Pope not paid with Indulgence money after , all. Whereupon-Dr. Jacobus gives the paesage, in full, from D'Anbigne, showing that the Pope had granted to the Archbishop "the contract for the sins of the Germans," for the express purpose of collecting hie, debt, and that the Memm , Fuggers (bankers,) had advanced to the , Archbishop the moiticiy to pay the Pope; Ipon the security of this con tract for - Indulgences,• Whibh the Pope grant ed, with, this eXprCIIII OinderptanOing, and with a bargain to divide, the ,profits--show. ing, from various admitted'authorities 'that a "Tax Book of the Roman' ChanderY," containing the fixed tariff on all the sins of the Decalogue, was issued by the Popes; and that; at least; . , twenty: seven editions of ' it were published 'at Rome, 'Besides other editions in French and German, for other countries where the . traffic was carried . The testimony, of awl , writers of that 'age u are referred to, andicited in the originals in. Bayles - Dictionary, (an' aokuowledged au. thority,) besides other celebrated weal, was , given to prove, this important,' hiptorigal fact, fully establishing, of course, the poet tion of Prof. J. that such a traffic, was known to the Romish Church, , and that they Could sell an indulgence to commit sin: This last confounding proof threw the Catholic into quite a fury,, in the .midst •• of which there escaped some very unbecoming words, such as " vulgar," " scurriloni," U garbling," " misrepresenting," " ont•Her. ode Herod," "poor French," " lieges," " an ti-Popery," &c.; And oddly'enough, this-out; burst opens with the old remark, that "when a man ie pushed to the .wall; and has nothing more to say, he : : commences to,;; abuse. his adTereary.", That ," Tax:Book," with the array of historieal- citations i and references; proving its existmnoe and• most comilusively 'establishing the traffic, meld an " explosion,":and, as was: very' mitural, the public, aruinfgrated that Prof. J. is not to be noticed hereafter!

That we may make no mistake, we:give the extract on this part of the . subject in fall: The exaMination"was"public, a large audience was present, antler course the views of the Yeung man were ne,secret. • , , He rejected emphaticallY the verbal inspiration of the Scriptures, He r was not (dear on, the Trinity—doubted &Ste the nee of the word per sons; and stated that the unity of God meant one personality. All sin and,holinessrre affirmed by lam to be Voluntary. God itai no holy nature. Man hai no sinful nature. Every man, has ability (in the sense of adequate power,"), to fulfill the the commands of God, 'even to sinless perfection 'lathe present, life. The Goapel is not 'absoiutely necessary to the salyation of adult heathens ' some are undoubt. edly saved without it., God will give all men a fair chance, and. Christ.died with the same,design for., all. - Hence, if all men have not had a fair dance in this life, ,they will have it after death. The candidate stated openly that ha inclined to 9iti belief that after >death, and before the final judgment, there, was a state (Hades) for all souls, where some who had-died impenitent—some, even who had rejected Christ:in this life—would have - a new offer of Christ , and salvatioi, and the gift of the Holy Ghost, and be saved ;`so that if called to the death-bed .of an impenitent sinner, and knowing that he had hut.a short definite time to live; 3 lie would not•shut him up to faith in Christ within that time, or final ruin. • • , These views were in direct conflict with the articles of ,the ehurch,,to which every member is required to give his assent. Yet they were not regarded by the Council as a diaqualification fort the pastorship.

The Adulteration of Liquors is carried to a fearful extent in .this metropolis: The following item from the Nevr York Chron icle, may be of int portance to those moderate drinkers who persuade themselves that the liquors in which their indulge, are really what they profess to be: 44 A well'known' deale the senn-mednomal beverage' of ''Schiedak Schnaps' has recently favored the public with a pamphlet furnishing the results of his own experience and observation, 'proving the criminal practice of the liquor trade in the general adulteration of liquors, and the extensive concoction of spurious article& He states that ' While the returns of the New York Custom House show an importation of twenty thousand half casks of brandy, thirty-five thou sand quarters, and twenty three thousand eighths, twenty:or thirty times that nuieber are sold to retailers and country dealers - as genuine French brandy. Three—fourths of all foreign brandies and gin are imported for the express purpose of adulteration. The Custom House hooks show, that one man Who has sold thousands of gallons of a certain kind of foreign liquor, has not imported more than, five pipes in five years.: He gives a list of the vegetable and mineral poisons- and acids that are employed, in this w,ork. He also states that the greater portion of the imported brandies is Whiskey sent from this country to be returned with a French brand as genuine French liquors. , The Century charges Profeasor Henry D. Rodg ers, State Geologist, of Pennszlvania, with the wholesale plagiarism of at leasi, nine-tenths of his work on the Coal Fields of North America and Great Britain." The value of the work is not disparaged, but this wholesale plunder is de . nonneed. • The msps prepared by others, with the utmost care and accuracy, and the statistics col lected at the expense of much : money, time, and toil, on the part of others, are laid, hold of, and apPropriated without a single word of. acknowl edgment. The article in the Century concludes with these significant words " Tardy as justice is in. each cases, we trust that it will in time reward those who deserve the credit of the severe and meritorious labors of the Pennsylvania survey, and strip from the brow of the great plagiarist and.fillibuster the laurels that he has stolen from,others." Those possessed of the magnificent volumes is sued by Professor' Rodgers, , under the auspices of the State of Penneyliania, if the Century be cor rect, may congratulate themselves in having the results, not of`Prof' Rodgers' 'labors, but the "emits of the 'labors of an indefatigable; corps of Engfr4ers,. for eight laborious yearn, under the auspices of the " American Iron Asiociation." , Mr. John Bose, a retired merchant, whose de cease took place some weeks ago, made a bequeut of $300,000 to the city of New York for the edu cation in agriculture of indigent white Children,, upon the condition that a like sum for the, same purpose be giren by the city,, or, raised by chari table contributions.
