Family Worship. A young man, in a literary institution, partly to enable him to maintain a profitable religious conversation, and convince gainsayers, and partly, we may suppose, to learn what may be his own duty on a future contingency, addresses to us the following let ter: "Dr. McKinney:—In conversing with a friend, some time since , on ' the duties of a Christi n/ the subject of family prayer was introduced, and reference was made to an elder of the Church, who did not have a family altar, for the reason that he could never find a commandin God's Word which sttictly enjoined it as a duty. Now, for the benefit of such, as well as for. the gratification of others who may receive such Gospel truths in their simplicity, I kindly request of you, or some other willing adviser, to give us the reasons why a Christian should prayin his family ; and be assured, of the grateful acknowledgments of one who delights to subscribe himself, _, .

The Secular Press, and the Religious, The ability with which the daily press, in our country is conducted, is wonderful. It is an Encyclopedia of knowledge on Science, Commerce, Agriculture, History, 0overnment—-on almost all subjects of living interest., And yet there is attached to it J _% very extensively_; a sad blemish—there is a want of the living principles of Gospel mbralityr—-a vvrm of iniquity, poisoning _, the fountains of social purity, and corrupting minds which it is the effort of the parent and the Church to imbue with the spirit of Christianity. _^ ./One of »the things to which exception may be justly taken j is well presented by the American Presbyterian. Our contemporary remarks : " What shall we say of our consistency in allowing the editors of newspapers in Mew York and Philadelphia, to print and send to our families the most disgusting, details of crimes which we will not so much as mention to them ? What shall we say of our morality when we not only allow i...

For the Presbyterian Banner and Advocate. Board of Education. Presbyteeian _Edijcation Rooms, V Philadelphia, Feb. 11th, 1857. J Some fifteen months ago, a special _^ appeal was made to the churches in behalf of the Board * off Education for funds—the first of the kind in nine years. That appeal was responded to with promptness arid liberality. The pecuniary pressure of the Board was relieved, and the year closed with a small balance in the treasury. We had hoped until now that we should be able to meet the demands of the current year, by the ordinary and spontaneous benevolence of our churches.; But bur year is so nearly closed, and so many of the churches have thus far withheld their collections, that we are constrained to make known our wants, and to request them earnestly to take such action in the case as they may deem best. 'Our treasury is Overdrawn , and we shall need, within the next two months, not less than ten thousand dollars in order to meet our _regular appropriat...

London Heathenism. Under this heading the London Christian Times gives us some account of the City Mission; an admirable institution, we should infer from what is told of its works. Under its influence there has been an increase, in the last year, of three hundred and eighty-one in the number of Sabbathkeeping cabs; one thousand one hundred and fifty couples who had lived together unlawfully, were induced to marry; eleven thousand five hundred and sixty-four ehil dren were sent to Sunday and daily schools; and five thousand eight hundred and sixtynine communicants were added to Christian Churches. In speaking of the,condition of the city, the Times says: . - . Experience is opening ; ,<rar eyes to the real state of the case, and teaching us that millions of people on the Continent absent themselves, from the ordinances even of the spurious Christianity, wherein they have been schooled to ungodliness, and that in our own Protestant country, and specially in the heart of th...

Eastern Correspondence. . New York, Feb: 21 ,1857. Mr. Editor :—-The corporators of Trinity church must find themselves in an unenviable position in administering the great trust con.mitt.ed to their chaTge. If they have souls, or (-ensibilities—of which, fortunately for them , corporations are thought to bedestitute—they must be kept in a continual worry from tie frequent attacks made upon their administration, or efforts to wrest the property from their control. These attacks and efforts indicate a jealousy of their growing wealth, and . an opposition to their general policy, which is presumed to aim at an increase of their power , by the accumulation of their property, and by rendering the churches which they aid _depended ori their bounty. _The_^ may be panly explain ed, too, by the desire that is no doubt felt _amoo_^ those w_^o hope to share _the _^_4_* that this great property may, by _somei*? cess, %_j forfeited tb the State an^?l _s_^_s ji- ££ ¦ "_« ¦ _» • _vears *»* ...

Intercourse with. Africa. Under this head, in our news department, we give some facts, and our thoughts thereon. We there present the subject in its pecuniary and social aspects. But it is also intimately connected with religion. It would tend greatly to the Christianizing of Africa. It is true that trade, in its own operations, does not tend to the cherishing of a devotional spirit, but rather the contrary ; and yet trade is ever found connected with revealed religion. It needs, for.its sustentation, the morality of religion; and, in this case, it would give facilities to Christians to reach the African people, with their books and institutions. The light of Divine truth, and the labors of Christian teachers would be found aide by side with commerce in its advances, and would be blessed of God to the conversibn of the nations.. Africa would be made, to stretch forth her hands unto God. We, shaU hope to see Christian people insist upon it, that their representatives shall favor ...

Superior, Wisconsin. This is a town of three years old, and numbering one thousand five hundred inhabitants. It is situated at the West end of Lake Superior, and on the Southern shores of the Bays of Superior and AlLues. The site is said to be beautiful, being a plot of five thousand acres, elevated thirty-four feet above the water, end with a gradual rise. The prospect is delig htful. The climate is favorable to health. The mines of copper, iron_^ and lead, the lumber, and the products of a rich agricultural and grazing country, and its being at the extreme Western point of Lake navigation , must render it a place of-great importance. Its growth must be rapid, and a rivalry in trade can hardly, from its situation , be anticipated. We are pleased/to see, as noted in another column, that this place is a'_ready occupied by our Church, and is enjoying Divine favors. Such a place well merits the attention of our Board of Missions. An early occupation of a country, anpl.; of .the...

Itetos _leprimoti Intercourse with Africa. We see some intimations that the British Government is. arranging with Spain for privileges at the Island of Fernando Po; not restrictive, however, but to have there a free port. The object is, to facilitate trade with the Western coast and the interior of Africa. Fernando Po is but a few miles off the mouth of the Niger, which is, next to tbe Nile, the main river in Africa, and empties into the Atlantic Ocean near the Equator. ,It has a surface, of some eight hundred or one thousand square miles, and a negro population of fourteen thousand. It is of volcanic origin, and rises into two peaks, one of which is ten thousand six hundred and thirty feet high. It is, for a large portion of the year, very healthy even for Europeans. The intention is to hav« on this _Island,ahealthfal harbor and commercial depot, and to establish thence a line of steamers on the Niger. An English steamer has already been up the river one thousand.miles, and...

Washington. * We are still without our regular Washington Letter. The approaching close of the Session of Congress stimulates, as such an event usually does, the members to increased act ivity; and yet, legislation has made no great progress. Little or no business has been matured, though a few bills have passed one or the other of the Houses. Cokrtjption.—The Committee to investigate the charges against un-named members, of official corruption, have brought their labors to a close, and presented their report. It is manifest that they were greatly _restricted in their investigation, for want of definite, information, and from the _difc ficulty of obtaining _^witnesses. Enough, however, has been discovered to show that there is an immense amount of fraud connected with Congressional legislation. _i ; In one case, the sum of $14,500 was given by the author and proprietor of a book, to get a law put through by which ,the book would be purchased. In another case, a member of Congres...
