ENGLAND AND THE UNITED STATES No two countries should be more tolerant of each other's wrong-doings, nor more ready to contribute to each other's welfare, than Great Britain and' North America. The freest countries on earth; the mostenlightend; the most nearly alike in laws, government and social institutions ; the most intimately connected and mutually beneficial, in productions, trade and commerce; identical in language, literature, art, and science ; _kindred by blood ; similar in religious faith; an d.having capacities to do each dther the greatest injury, with the least resulting benefit_^rbeing such, the two countries should love and ! help each other, and bear and forbear, and permit nothing to engender strife or provoke alienations. Our own feelings have long been, for England before all the world. In early life when reading the history of the Revolution, and when noting the events leading to the War of»1812, we,felt provoked. But all ill-will had passed away, on our...

WEEK OF_^ PRAYER Amid the excitements of the day, let not ministers or churches forget or neglect the following recommendation of the last General Assembly, viz.: " That the churches be requested to observe the week, from the 5th to the 11th of January, 1862, inclusive, as a season of special prayer .for the prosperity _ot the work of Christian missions throughout the world." At no time has the American Church had greater reason for' prayer ' that God would protect and bless his people and save sinners , than now. - The times are ominous,;1 but-the Lord reigneth. >Let us draw near to him; humble ourselves before him; cast our care upon him; and entreat his interposition for the sake of his dear . Son, Jesus Christ He is ready to hear the voice of our cry. He will send deliverance now, or give strength and grace for the endurance of yet greater" calamities.

DlTOQfYKTA T _, One of Jfaysoii_'s Illustrations.—Said he: " Suppose we perceive a number of children playing together, in (the street, we could not,, without previous knowledge, determine who are their parents, or where are their homes. But let pn'e of them receive an injury, or get into any trouble, and _« learn who are his parents, for he immediately runs to them for relief. Thus iti< with the Christian and the man of the world.

THE PRESBYTERIAN HERALD Our contemporary quotes a brief notice from our columns: " Presbytery of Sangamon. — This Illinois Presbytery, at its late meeting, passed a series of resolutions, denying the right of any ecclesiastical body to take such action with regard to the state of the country as was taken by our General Assembly last Spring, although the Presbytery is careful not to mention th-at proceeding. This is the only Presbytery North of Mason and Dixon's line that has made such a record. Let it stand alone (in all the inglorious distinction it Kas thus acquired." It then adds: , s • " The above sneering paragraph we clip from the Presbyterian _Bating , of Pittsburgh. The Presbytery of _Sangamon, we presume, .will not be greatly moved by it to change their wise and judicious course.

IN MEMORJAM OF REV. ROBERT JOHNSTON Such is the title of a discourse by the Hev. E. P. Swept, D.D., detailing the life, labors, and character of a venerable father of our Church in Western Pennsylvania, lately gone to rest. This sermon was delivered before the Synod of Allegheny, at its late meeting in Newcastle , and was listened to with fixed and solemn attention. The text is a fruitful theme on such an occasion—"Your fathers, where are they ? and the prophets, do they live for,ever ?" The Rev. Robert Johnston was a lineal descendant of Oliver' Cromwell, by Bridget his eldest daughter, who was first the wife, of General Fleetwood, and afterwards of General Ireton. He was li censed to preach the Gospel by the Preshytery of Ohio in 1802, spent a year as a missionary in Ohio arid Kentucky, and was successively pastor of the churches of Scrubgrass and Bear Creek; Meadville, Sugar Creek, and Conneaut Lake; Rehoboth and Round Hill, and Bethel in Indiana County, and took an activ...

A MISTAKE The Presbyter, in preparing to make a quotation from our notice of Dr. Rice's Sermons, says: "The Banner , of Pittsburgh, has an able review of these sermons, from which 'we make some extracts, only reminding our readers that the Banner < took sides' with Dr. Rice against Dr. MacMaster on the effort to oust the latter." The Presbyter should not attempt to remind its readers of a thing which never occurred. The Banner never cooperated with Dr. Rice in any of his Seminary schemes ; though we were the early and unwavering advocates of a Seminary for the North-west. We never, that we are aware of, made the slightest movement to supplant Dr.,MacMaster by giving his place to Dr. Rice. Nor did we ever advocate the appointment of Dr. Rice to a Professor's Chair. Tbe ground we steadil y occupied/in 'regard to Professors in the Seminary was, that the churches in the region to be,served, should have the nominating of the men ; men on lohom they could

HOW TO MAKE A CHURCH FLOURISH. ' We have quite a number of feeble churches in our land- Yery many are not able to have a pastor at all. Others keep, apastor for awhile, on a small salary, poorly paid; and they get in debt ' , and starve their minister.-and heleaVes them. .Others a_^rain . 'i j i i keep their minister, .but do not flourish. They send off no colonies, and do but little for education and missions. Why all this V It is the nature of relig ion , when the true seed is p lanted in a good soil and well nurtured, to grow, thrive, flourish.,. It is sodn the individual soul, in the community, and in the wide world.

Meeting in Behalf of onr Soldiers.—An interesting meeting was held in the' Second Presbyterian church , of this city, on Thursday night of last week, to take into consideration the religious wants of our soldiers, especially of those from this vicinity. Addresses were made by Mr. Bliss, Rev. Dr. Jacobus, Rev. Dr.,BATKD , of New. -York, and Rev. Mr. Chase, of the Baptist church. We understand that anoth er meeting will soon be held when definite action will be taken. We are persuaded that our' people in this region have not been as watchful for the spiritual interests of those who have gone from us to fight for our country asHhey ought to have been, or as Christians in some other places have been. It is high tiine to awake to duty in this matter, for while many regiments have excellent chaplains, others have miserable excuses.

Washington. Dec. 18.—The proclamation of Gen. Phelps, at Ship Island, is condemned by all classes of politicians. It was his individual act, and must, therefore, be regarded accordingly. Gen. James H. Lane, of Kansas, has been tendered the position of Brigadier-General by the President. [He was confirmed unanimously by the Senate.] Gen. Kelly has daily skirmishes with the Confederate advance, but he progresses steadily and slowly toward Winchester. Dec. 19.—As the subject-of abolishing slavery in the District of Columbia is now agitated, it may be of general interest to know that,_^according to the recent census, the number of slaves in Georgetown is 577; in Washington, 1,744, and in the remainder of the District, 834,. making a total of 3,185.
