THE LATE ASSEMBLY. Our readers will doubtless beinterested in the following view of the action and spirit of our late Assembly, which we take from the Central Christian Herald, the organ of our chnrch in Cincinnati. This excellent and ably-conducted paper circulates mainly in that part of our church in which the plan of union has been most extensively acted upon, and where consequently, we might expect a decided sympathy with Congregationalism, and a repugnance to Denominational action on the part of the Assembly, to prevaiL No report cap give a full idea of the spirit of the' meeting. . We wish that all tie.members_,of oiir church, and all who desire its prosperity, could have been present to see with their own eyes, and to hear with their own ears. Byjttius feeling the pulse, of the body, as t& life tides of its views and feelings came up from many thousand hearts all over the land, they would have learned its unity, and its strength. They would have seen that we are no ...

8ECRETABIE There seem to be two opposite errors about Secretaries of Church Committees or Benevolent Societies. One is, that they are collectors of mdney_/ _^h at they should preach on the subject of their cause in every church iri their field_^and should go personally to every one who gives to benevolent purposes, _andsolicit funds. The effect of this plan is to seculirize the Secretary," and to make the impression upon the Church that it is an unsuitable position, for a minister, as it would be, if this theory were correct. The other extreme is, that a Secretary should be so far above his business as to neglect the collection of money, .and the specific details of his work, and give himself only to the business of making a grand impression on the Church concerning his cause. The one fritters away himself and his work In endless minutise , andvlowers his character and position; the impressions made by toe other are like circles in I_^e , water, which expand until they dissipa...

» » ? — _IjU _jums of til Wt_%K Movements of the Japanese.—The Embassy left Philadelphia, on Saturday, for New York, after a visit to this city of a week. We are happy to be able to state that the gross and-painful violations of the sanctity oftheSabbath day, which they were encouraged to commit in the National Capitol, were not repeated in the Quaker city. Whether this unexpected exhibition of propriety resulted from a sense of delicacy in the Japanese, or from fatigue, demanding the repose for" which the day, in part, was appointed, or whether it was felt by those having them in charge, that public opinion in our orderly city was too strongly on the side of a regpecjjfui observance of the day, to flout it so impudently as was done in Washington, we know not. With the exception of the medical part of the Embassy, which went to witness a surgical operation performed that day ' , by Dr. Pancoast and others, the officials and their followers kept pretty closely to their rooms an...

HFOT A POLITICAL BOOK! THE BOBBIN BOY, Was not written for political purposes, as reported bysome enemies of the Governor. It was commenced long before the present campaign. The author having become possessed of the facts (for it is a true story) by old boy-friends and school mates of « Nat," has been led to put them in book form for the encouragement and delicht of the young. It is a remarkable life, rising from a most humble positionin the face of adverse circumstances, by his correct and firm principle, to the chair of Governor, and is an interesting life, full of incident, that transpired to makethe man—when yet a boy—made still more so by the popular writer. The publishers have also done their best to make it an attractive book. . It is elegantly illustrated by Billings, printed and bound in beautiful style; and the announcement of a nuKTH edition in phess the seventh day (one week) after publication, shows a success rarely experienced in book publishing.
