THE PITTSBURGH DAILY PRESS.
Courtesy on the part of neighbors all
ways apPreciated, and the More so as it is
the companion of intelligence and moral
worth. For tfiis reason we may be, per
, express our gratification with the
kind notices , extended to us last week, by
the Gazetle, Dispatch ) Journal, Preis, and
There are but few cities where there is
more mind employed upon the daily press,
than there is in . Pittsburgh'; and we know
of none which can claim ameditOrial corps
excelling , our brethren in moral worth,
'Let our intelligent and religions communi
ty wisely consult their own , interests, by
ably sustaining daily 'and 'weekly journals
which convey, to the rising race, all import,
ant information, through pure channels.
These often possess intereit, but it is
possible to make them too numerous, too
local in their bearings, and too much like
advertiseMenta. There are tin 'thousand
excellent places in the great North-West,
South-West, and Pacific States, in everyone
of which there are many attractions. ..Good
Presbyterian settlers are wanted'in - them
all, and there are lands for sale.
Our brethren must see, at once, that if a
tithe of these should write to us, a publi
cation of their letters, would be utterly
impossible. We publish as many such
letters as our space will admit, giving other
matters due attention ; and in' selecting,
we give the preference to those which afford
the most information of a religious charac
ter. We are also influencedhy a desire to
have our readers acquainted with all parts
of our vast country.
Our friends Who may not fold their com
munications in our columns, will please
kindly attribute the cause to very great
number which we receive, and possibly,
sometimes, to the large amount of space
they have 'devoted to the Merely - secular
aspect of, affairs.
WESTERN THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY.
It affords us great gratification to learn,
incidentally, that within a few days this
institution of the Church has received the
handsome sum of $lO,OOO, to be expended
in the way of scholarships, and in making
up deficiencies in the current expenses, &e.
Of this amount $5,000 ,are from a iegacy
by a Christian lady in Columbus, Ohio;
and the:remainder is a donation from
generous . Christian friends in the East.
The great interest taken in this Semi
nary by those at a distance, should stimulate
the churches in fife Synods, of Pittsburgh,
Ohio, Wheeling, and Allegheny, to, com
plete the endowment of the Fourth Pro-.
fessorship at once. A little effort, 'accom
panied with a very small degree of self
denial, would speedily bring about this
result. We trust the action of the
churches will' evince the existence of a
very strong attachment to this Seminary,
whose influence for good upon the world;
both' at home and abroad, hail not been
small.in the past, and may be vastly in
creased for,the , future.
