A letter from ,China, in' the New-York
Evening Post, informs 'us of the death of
the Rev. REUBEN LownrE, of the Presby
ierian'toard of Foreign Missions, and son
cif, the Hon. WALTER LOWRIE, Sr:, Secre
tary of that Board. This is the second of
his sons who has died in connexion with
our Board in China. The first was killed
by pirates, While' passing from one port to
another, several years am The one just
dead, like bis brother, was a man of. fine
education, fervent piety, and unusual- en
ergy-of charaCter. The venerable Secre
tary and - his family will have the sympa
thies'and prayers of the whole Church.
Who 4a prepared to take the place now
made vacant?
The growth of Methodism- has.been.won-
Riedel. And it still grows—grows, so far
as-hUmin agency is concerned, by the sim
ple powers of instruction and persuasion.
Well may its aged ministers cling to an
agency which has •been so effective.
An official return, submitted to the Gen
eral Conference, lately in session at Buffalo,
gives the following interesting statistics of
Methodiim in the world:

euPPosing three riembsrs of the congre

we ,have an aggregate population depending
on the ministration of Methodism! of hardly
less than eleven millions.
This excellent Monthly is now in the
middle of itttenth volume. It has main
tained 9;110 standing 'for orthodoxy, and
has : been sealons,tble, and unflinching in
defence of the truth. It was established
by Dr. Vtrt..B.ENssE,LAER, and has been
guided by his. intellect. We regret the ar
rival of the time when it must be trans
ferred; to others. But there is, no contend
ing,successfully against providence. Sick
ness has laid, its heavy and immovable hand
upon•the venerated editor and proprietor.
His pen is to move no more, in all' proba
bility, 044 his mind : can do t .but little at
guiding, and that for but a short time, any
enterprise on earth.
Another column will show thi the Mag

sured that; to suitable persdns, the terms

embark in the enterprise ? Our Church

highly desirable to any who would enter
into a wide field of usefulness.

. Our five Boards are the:Agendiiii of our
Church, by which she coginuonslY carries
on her work, as an organization. By her
Domestic Board she sustains her own feeble
parts, fills up interstices in the planting of
ne w eongregatiOns, and enlarges her .
daries, as the settlement of the country
vances. By her Board of Church• Building,
she aids the needy in the erection of houses
of wership, that r the poorest of her family
may have a comfortable,centre of resort,
where to, :assemble, for worship. By our
Educational arrangements, she takes her
poor and pious youth, whom God has gifted
with talents and endued with his Spirit,
and trains them for her ministry at home
and abroad. By her Publication system, she
puts her views of truth in all its varied as
pects, into convenient roans for preserva
tion, 'distribution and influence, and spreads
it all abroad. And by her Foreign Board,
she sends her heralds to publish the glad
tidings, teach the heathen, and establish,
the Redeemer's kingdom, to the uttermost
parts of the earth. In General Assembly
she can meet but seldom butin her Boards
she can eoncentrate all •her power, and by
them she can exist continually in an organ-;
ized form, and Put forth her strongener
gies in the accomplishing of her mission on
These Boards, her own agencies, by which
she makes effective her benevolence and
performs her work, she justly requires, not
onlyvto receive her instructions, but also to
make reports to her, annually,
,of their
doings; and the reports she causes to be
published for the information and encour
agement of all membois. These, then,
shouTdrie extensively read and examined ;
'and to this end her periodical press has an
important dtitY to perform..
A Synopsis of the Report of the Foreign
Board for 1860, we gave to our readers
some" time ago. And monthly we direct
their attention to portions of the Board's
work. We recur to the subject in this for
mal manner, to tell . them that now the
report is published in full in an Bvo.
pamphlet,of 114 pages; an appendix being
attached showing the amounts donated. by
particular chinches.
This Board employs three Secretaries;
and we have been often reproved for not
Censuring them for this, since we are so
zealous for reducing the number of em
ploYees in the Domestic Board. Our
friends should note that we never opposed,
but always advocated the employing of as.
many laborers as there was sufficient "work
for, in all the depaitments of our Beclesi'
astical operations ; and the paying of them
all, a fair and full compensation. fit is the
employing of men for whoin there is no
need, that we have opposed—the paying of
idlers, the giving. of very high . salaries to
.two men for doing but one man's work, and
the adding of travelling expenses, also,
when one or the other might choose to ride
around and enjoy his leisure. •It is against
this misuse of consecrated funds, this tax
ing of the charities of Christ's people,
that we remonstrate. Now, nothing of this
occurs in the Foreign Board. There there
is work to be done, and laborious toiling,
faithfully and Usefully. The Christian may
cast his pounds or his farthings into this
treasury, with full -confidence that there
will be a judicious and economical appro
The Secretaries of this Board, with the
aid of a Treasurer, and some ,clerk hire,
collect and disburse $284,037:. They have
several missions in India, China, and Afri
ca. They have one mission in Siam, one
in Japan, arid one among, thn,Ohinese in
California. They have missions among the'
Chippewa, Omaha, Kickapoo, .otoe, lowa,
Creek ) 'Choctaw, Chickasaw, .and Seminole
Indrans., c 'They have mission among the
Romaniste in: South. - America.- and they
either aid. or ,employ laborks,ixn France,
Geneva, Belgium,and,Holland',7,..and among
the Waldenses.; They have'a . 'largeriiiiiilier

the translation and publication of the Scrip
tures, and bf devotional books; and school
books, in the various languages where their
missions are established. 'Ai Many of the
missions they are obliged to, build houses,
clear lands, and conduct agricultural and
mechanicaP operations. Works so numer
ous, so great, so far separated,, so varied; so
important, may well, in their dile manage
ment, employ the time, talents, and ener
gies of three good Secretaries and a Treas
urer. _
• There are at the various stations, ,
sionaries, American, 'B2, Native 6; Lay
Teachers, American 187, Native 74; ,Com
municants. 2,779; pupils,in the,course of
instruction, 4,524.
Here is an amount of well' being 'done,
at which the Christian may well rejoice.
The.labors of our Church, in the spread
ing of the Gospel in heathen lands, ,are
not in vain-. Presbyterians -may, to •this
cause at least, be "'Cheerful" givers; and
we may well add, libel* giVers also.
We then earnestly commend ,the whole
report, to.- the churches. Its being pub
lished, as we remarked last week, as an
extra tirthe' Home and For *cion Record,
has given it a circulation far beyond
which it could obtain as a, pamphlet, and
relieves us. of the necessity of making, ex
tensive extracts.
Godito orders it: in the'dispensations of
hiS providertee,;that there is nand. alvirays
will be, rich men and poor men, the
same community. Riches do - not, in any
country, indicate a combination of all the
-virtues, , nor poverty a predominance of any
of the vices, but in a 'emintry like 'ours,
where the avenues to 'wealth *are ecivally
open to everyman, and where, emphatically;
"the hand of the diligent maketh rich,"
, and where estates are not entailed, it may
reasonably be expected thit, where there is
moral excellence there will. not, unless un

Christianity admits of the distinctions of
rich OA poor; and it secures 'to every man

patrimony and.of the fruits,,of his own
genuity.;and toil." . In the sense of .eipializ

The truths and the
,institutions of re
vealed relioion both reoardmen very much
as, equals. They require mutual love and
fraternal feelings, and these to be expreased
by meeting together on common 'tern's.'
A late, American 41eAserige2: liar, on this
subject, some excellent thoughts, which we
transcribe 'and commend :
" The poor-always ye have withlyci"u."
-In all civilized and Christian States, society
is so organized 'as tipbring the rich and the
poor together,' and make mutually 'de
pendent. .Ordiriarily , they do not meet on
the same , level. In - varibus respects; , the
rich have greatly the advantage , of' the
poor, but note in c all—ant in the most im
portant': respeets. The %oftener -=they <•pan
• meet on common ground thebetter for both,
where they are reminded that they have
brotherhood. Nowhere are these , condi
tions so fully met as in ;the house of= God,
where all the , accidental, distinctions of
rank and property; are suspended. None
rich, none poor , in . the sight:of God, tsave
the poor in spirit, and the rich in faith and
good works.
All alike are sinners, bound to the,same
judgment; needing, the same. parden,,,the
same " washing of' regeneration and renew
ing of the Hely .Ghost," the same preach
ing of faith , andirepentance :from the pul
pit. The grand 'design of public Worship
is to bring person's of all classes' and con
ditions together ":under` the same roof', to
offer up their united = confessions, atipplica
tions, and thanksgivings to Nipl With .
whom " there is no respect: of' persons,"
and to receive that instruction • which 'is
able' to make them wise unto salvation.
Any failure > of religious ,imProveinent,
whether by the= rich or the poor, in meet

Aside. from the higher ends of weekly
public worship, it, is , morally impossible for
the high and the low, the rich and the

GitEAT EXCiITEMEigT was produced by
the refusal of Mr. 'Vanderbilt to allow the
California mails to , be taken on board his
vessels, on, account of the failure
,of the
appropriation by Congress. But' an • ar
rangenaent has been made, for the time, by
which these mails , •will-:be , carried as here
tofore. Much public indignation has,been
expressed against.: Mr; ,Vanderbilt, but he
says, that the .magnitude =of the California
mails' is not 'generally' understood , ; they
have 'lexceeded.' 'thirty - tona by'a`
Ste6ner. - Over one 'hundred sacks of free
matter , are now in the, New-York„Post

‘quire hitti to carry for the 'postages--4hat
is, nothing. - '
The tA.sx7.ltlV,is visited by thou

anission fee , from one dollar to = fifty cents,
has been a fortunate move. Some :of .the
Railroad'Ciimpanies are issuitii , exettraion
tickets to visitors - of this monster; of the
deep. Efferts are, now being made to have

The Dzmort OF MURDER seems to have
broken loose altogether in this city. Scarce
ily a day ;passes without some outrage
and death by. violence being brought: to
light: The execution of Hicks, the Pirate,
,who murdered the Captain and crew of an
oyster sloop for the sake of the Money on
!`board, and whe, , if his own confession is to
be believed,'was , stained with a hundred
ether crimes, took place at Bedloe's
IJast Friday. The,mode in which this affair
was conducted, reflects
..but little credit on
HMaishil .Rynders, who , had the matter in
:charge. The beat: that conveyed the cul-
Prit;'was - filled with a Motley - crowd, and
took : an excursion up the river, for the pur
pose: ofyallowing these worthies, the privi

of the prisoner made h almt a hero in

the ...eyes of those by whom he was sur
rounded, and. who endeavored to• make as
Much , of the occasion' as possible.
The :JAPANESE EXPENSES have created
quite a flutter,
~,Thirty. thousand dollars
were apprepriated by . the city for the enter
tainment,4 these heathen strangers, and
this sum was thought extravagant. But
the bills, when footed up, amount,to the
emir:mous sum , of $120,000—590,0004 of
which" are' . hotel expenses. Aldermen
Beale and Van Tine, who'took such - an
aCtiVe part in the ridiculens demonstra
tions, have been, greatly agitated, at „the
announeenient, and have labored assid
,mouslito have tre-bills:reduced, hut have.
only succeeded to bringing them down to
$109,000. As long as a great city Twill
place such men in,anthority, the people may
expect to be fleeced, 'and the municipality
-to be r Made ridiculous. It is to be said,
however, to tha Credit of the traPanese,that
they appear to have been sensible of their
obligatious to, the police, for,, upon leaving
the 'country, they~ deposited $20;000 with
Mr. Belinont,'Ve be distributed among the

- Was 'then introduced, and
stepping forward, said that he bad been
called upon to deliVer an address, the sub
ject of which was of pecuniary interest to
every one, and of vital pecuniary interest to
the merchants of this city. He then ad.
verted to the foreign importations to this
city for the past, four legs, from 1856 to
1860. During 1859 the direct importation
of foreign dry goods from Europe to Phila
delphia, amounted to $2,839,570, while the
indirect, or that which comes through Ne w
York, amounted to $21,815,430, showing a
decrease of over $3,000,00.0 in direct im
portations from 1856, and an increase or
the indirect importations. Thus it will be
seen that Neii Yerk is the foreign port of
entry for Philadelphia. In 1859 there
were nine thousandthree hundred and fifty.
three direct arrivals in this city, and ten
thousand. six himdred and ninety-six in
direct, making an aggregate of twenty
thOusand arrivals of persons. who passed
through to the West... Outside of this,
there were ftve thousand-persons who either
staid here or passed through to the South.
There is a noticeable feature which should
be taken into consideration—that is, while
the arrivals in this citythaire been about the
same yearly, in 'New York they vary con
siderably. In 1858 they were less by one
half than in the Previous year. The num
ber of foreign importing houses in the city
of Philadelphia is about one hundred. They
must consider that they are helping, to sus
tain the line of steamships running between
New York and Europe. They would, no
doubt, support a line running from this
city, if they '::were assured • that the rates
would be as - as to New York ; emi
grants would come, here, if the fare was as
low, and the accoMmodations as good.
