Baptism—The Princeton Review—Status of Infants-Duty to the Baptized. The leading article in the January number of the Princeton Review, has elicited much attention, and has prompted to no little inquiry. What, the Church asks, is the opinion of this truly excellent and extensively influential journal, on a subject so deeply vital as the condition and prospects of her offspring ? The difficulty occurs mainly in a few sentences, and relates to the status of the infants of believers_^ and the grounds of their being admitted to baptism. On page 22, we read: ' "2. Those incapable of such profession, (the intelligent profession of adults who are brought in from the world,) may be visibly members of the Church, by -virtue of God's revealed covenant, or promise to be their God. This is precisely the case with infants and the ground of their baptism. But, in either case, membership in the visible Church is founded on _^presumptive membership in the invisible, until its subjects, by acts ...

Eastern Correspondence. * NewYobk, March 7,1857. Mr. Editor:—-In considering the prevalence of crime, we must take into the account the publicity given to, it by the Press. It is sought out with eagerness, and described in minute detail. However revolting to delicacy or decency, however horrible. or trivial, it is set1 forth without scruple or reserve, in reports of trials, in racy editorials, in city " items," or in simple narrative, until public, attention is not only arrested, but often fixed and absorbed by its occurrence. During the fortnight, for, example, in which the Coroner was; investigating the murder of Burdell, the daily papers of this city were almost literally filled with details of the proceedings, with rumors about the parties implicated, and theories as to its cause or commission. Some papers are devoted entirely to police reports or details of crime, while the staple of the news given by many others, consists mainly of the same material. It is no wonder, there...

The New President. Mr. Buchanan was duly inducted into office, on the ¦ 4th inst. An immense concourse of people were in the Capital, and festivities abounded. The new President enters office somewhat _trammeled by party] and_^ heir to some difficulties ; but he has also many things in his favor; and a righteous administration is the subject of hope. His religious training was in the Presbyterian Church,' and*in it he halB habitually attended on public worship. _^Heis, hence, well instructed in Christian morality j and the seeds, early sown and long nurtured, * may be expected to pioduce rich fruifc in his advancing age. The Inaugural is an able paper. The President pledges himself to one term. He : strongly advocates popular sovereignty.

For the Presbyterian Banner and Adroeate. Revival at White Clay Creek. Newark, Dei., March 6, 1857. Rev. akd Diak Brother:—I have read, with much interest, the accounts, which, of late, have so frequently appeared in jour paper, of revivals in. various sections of our beloved Zion. Such accounts are cheering and encouraging to God's ministers and people. It is with devout thankfulness I desire to record the goodness of God to my own charge, in again granting us a gracious visitation. On the 27th of November, we commenced a series of meetings in White Clay Creek church, which were continued for two weeks. Large numbers attended, and God graciously granted an outporing of the Spirit. Christians were revived; and many sinners were awakened_^ and, as we trust, converted unto God. Some sixty persons attended the inquiry meetings; more than fifty of whom are indulging a hope. Among them are the aged, the middle-aged, and the young; the children of the church, and some who, until recentl...
