Jor t|c fcn_^ Abbie Jane. BY VIRGINIA F. TOWNSEND. She was my first _childrfriend , and my dearest little Abbie Jane. There were only two narrow alleys running between our houses, and their sitting room windows faced each other; and shutting my eyes, I can see the little restless head, at the second pane_^ the hands making all sorts of pantomimes, and the lips all sorts of motions, just as I saw it in the days that lie piled away back in my _memoiy. She was i a bright, good-hearted, impulsive ehildj this little Abbie Jane Marks, not the least pretty, with her short, straight, dark hair cut close to her head, and her sharp, piquant, irregular features; but there was something about her that every body liked,- she was so*bright and- sparkling, so full; of. sunshine, and kind-heartedness, that pn,e could not help forgiving her faults; for, I am sorry to say, my little friend was at times pert, indomitable, : and quick-tempered. I was almost as much at home in Abbie_'_s house ...

For th_« Presbyterian Banner and Advocate Macdonougli College, Macomb, 111. Me. Editob :-r-In an article over tie signature of " North-West," found in the Banner and Advocate of the 7th of February, a remark occurs, touching the College above named, which it may be duly in place to notice, by stating some facts going to show the present actual position of that Institution. After saying that " Old School Presbyterians have no College in Illinois," the writer adds: "Our Institution at Macomb forms no exception to this remark, for it cannot be said ever to have been estab-Usliedy in the proper sense of the term/' Imputing no ill design to the writer, for none is supposed; yet his brief statement |may lead to misapprehension.* The facts m the case, which I would have known, are the following: Macomb College is. now a Chartered Institution, with: its legal _lolfcd of Trustees, and holding corporate powers.

She was very kind to the bereaved old man, making him visits, and carrying him presents every week; but this did not last long, for in a little while he went to his daughter, with his hand laid in its final blessing on the head of Abbie Jane Marks. She had made his last days very pleasant ones to him. " He will tell her, Mary, when_, he gets home to heaven, how I have tried to make him happy,: and she will forgive me, I know she will, because I didn't kiss her that day, but oh ! how I wish I'd done it," said the little girl, many times afterward, as she buried her face, wet with warm tears, in my lap.—Home Magazine. her head when we entered—her head over which the death mildew was gathering. Abbie Jane sprang forward, and wound her arms around Miss Stone's neck.

Dear Brethren :; —^The Home and Foreign Record (page 24,) for Feb., contains a letter from Rev. David A.

For the Presbyterian Banner and Advocate. Counterfeit Revivals. There have been genuine revivals of religion. There have been unmistakable evidences of the Spirit's presence in unusual power and grace. Sinners who had become very bold in sin, daring, obstinate _siuners came crouching, and trembling, in great dismay, crying, « What must we do to be saved ?" The solemnity of death and judg ment gathered around men's homes and hearts, which had been given tp mirth and song. The people of God gathered in imr ploring groups between the porch and the altar; or sat upon the ground in sackcloth, whilst they remembered their broken vows ; or rejoiced, with exceeding joy, under the smiles of God's reconciled countenance. And all this without any peculiar cause being visible. The only apparent difference was the more frequent use.of ordinary means. And this fact, that ordinary means have been used in *n extraordinary manner in cases of this kind has given them an undue importance. God ha...

Western Correspondence.

I enter upon this work in this letter, promising to give your readers as reliable information upon all these subjects as my information, and a ten years' residence, in the West, will enable me to do.
