United States Seriate of The Proposed Treaty, agreed upon between Mr. Dallas and the British Government—is much to be regretted, if it shall lead to further difficulties and complications. International peace between England and America, on a solid and permanent basis, is essential to the prosperity of trade and commerce, as well as to the higher objects of the advance of civilization, and the spread of the Gospel throughout the world. Let us hope that, ere long, all causes of difference will be permanently removed. • The Persia took out Lord Napier, our new Ambassador j and diplomatic intercourse, after a painful interval,, being now resumed, and a new President coming into office, we trust that by mutual moderation and good feeling, the Central American question may be speedily and definitely arranged.

For the Preabytorian Banner and Advocate. Baptism.—No. 10. YMBOLICAL IMPORT OF BAPTISM. _te two sacraments of the New Testai have each a distinct symbolical meani In the one, the application of water pes purity of heart. In the other, the of Christ is shown forth. Our Bapbrethren strangely confound the two lances as though they were alike in meaning. Baptism, say they, is deid to convey an allusion to the death, J and resurrection of Christ; and theretoe candidate should be buried in I. But what resemblance can they out between things so entirely differ-Christ's death was by crucifixion. was he buried after the manner of this by, in a grave dug ia the earth, and ted with mould ; but in a sepulchre, cut $ perpendicular face of the solid rock_, this little apartment his lifeless body jonveyed through a small door, which then closed up with a great stone.

Yes, it is beautiful, excellent, glorious j an<?. we shall never see all its beauty till we _reach, heaven, and see Jesus as he is. What wonderful love was his! What glories iu his clfafacter!

PETER'S INKLING FOR WATER REPROVED BY CHRIST. "What good," asks the _immersiouist, " can a little water do you?" In reply, I ask him, What good can much water do' you ? Nay j ^\^goo _^can a sma _\\ pOrt,ion of bread and a sup of wine, in the saeraniental feast, do a person ? The quantity of the element used , is just as important in the one ordinance as in the other. Letus guard against the erro,r Peter once committed.— John xiii: 8—10. When , Jesus said to him, "If I wash thee not, thou hast, no part with me," Peter, like many in our day, took up the idea, that it was the external washing that was to do him good; and hence he thought the more water, the better. He said, " Lord, not ray feet only, but also my hands and my head." But Jesus reproved his carnal views, saying, " He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every wlit."

More Elucidation Relative to the Status of Infants, The subject of infant membership in the Church of Jesus Christ, and the dufcy of the Church toward those infants as they grow up to manhood , is so vastly important, that Christians will not think it amiss if we give it much space in our columns. And even if some things should be irrelevant, a little chaff" among the wheat, they will _excereise their own powers in making a separation, rather than be deprived of a much needed means of benefit. The Princeton Review , whose article has called forth so much discussion, occupies a position giving it immense power in our Church. Its friends must, therefore, not life, and the adornments of grace. We do not see that there is need of further discussion as'to what the Reviewer really meant; but there is need, immense need, if farther incitements, to stir up parents and the Church to the timely and full discharge of their duties toward their children. Will not the Review, and, the Reviewe...

Eastern Correspondence. Hew Yoke, March 21,1857. Mr. Editor :—Popular amusement is a subject of great practical interest, and just now excites much attention. Amusement, or relaxation of some kind , seems a necessity of our nature; and in this city, at least, most ample arrangements are made for its gratification. There are, for example, some twenty theatres, concert rooms, &c, open and attended nightly by thirty thousand people, at an estimated cost of about one hundred thousand dollars per week. This is but one class of amusements, and one class of pleasure-seekers, whereas the variety is great, and number endless. During the past Winter, the excitement and elesiastical bodies often excites anly ridicule or merriment. _Preaebing on the subject does not seem effective'T indeed some _wilis, ters doubt whether, as a mere question of manners, it should be handled at all in the ptxlpii. Discipline ia rarely attempted, seldom or never enforced; while individuals and families...

Superannuated and Disabled Ministers' Fund. The Committee appointed by the last Assembly, on the highly important subject of a Scheme by which adequate provision shall be made for God's ministers, in their decline of life, issue the following Circular. It will doubtless elicit the deep interest of the brethren of the churches: * . Ciscissati, March 6, 1857. Sir:—At the last meeting of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church, (O. S.f ) the propriety of a further effort to secure an adequate provision for the superannuated and disabled ministers of the Church, and the widows and children of such as are in indigent circumstances, was folly discussed. The result was a decided expression in favor of such action, including an affirmance of the resolutions of the Assembly of 1849, on that subject. And the undersigned were appointed a Committee "to digest land report to the next General Assembly, a scheme for future operations." To discharge efficiently the trust committeti t» t...

Westminster College. This Institution owes its origin to the Synod of Missouri, and must thence, mainly, deiive its sustenance. 16 is located at Fulton, in Oallaway County, and has been in existence about five years. The situation is represented as being very favorable; but its progress, hitherto , has not. been remarkably rapid. It seems;* however, to be fixed on a firm basis, and promises a healthful growth, only that its friends shall not become weary in welldoing, and.that those who should be its friends will prove themselves such by liberal deeds. Presbyterians are not very numerous, and some of them, not very wealthy, in Missouri. But they need a College; and an Ecclesiastical College seems to be their only hope. In the Atlantic section of the country, we can hardly appreciate the need fell; in the West, of Presbyterial and Syhfdical efforts in the-promotion of literature. Here, at-an early day, Presby terianism was comparatively strong; and State institutions were intrust...

Efforts in Kansas. It is always a symptom for good when people are disposed, earnestly, to help themselves. We were, therefore, much gratified to receive a letter from Indian City, Kansas Territory, informing us of the existence of -a _. Charitable -Society in that place, for the purpose of educating the poor, and also the Indians in the region. It speaks of the Indians as advancing encouragingly in The American Tract Society. The Committee, appointed last year, to investigate the affairs of this institution, met in New York last week, and, after a two days' session, adjourned till April 21st. A Subcommittee was appointed to prepare the business. The members present were Hon. Theodore Frelingbuysen, Judge Jessup, Drs.

Revivals. EarlvilIiE III.—We last week noted from an exchange , the revival at this place. We have since received a ' letter from the pastor, Mr. Ustick, which speaks of a few persons still inquiring, and acknowledges the help received from brethren Henderson and Fleming. The church was organized by the latter, a few years ago. White Watee, Ind.—Sixteen persons were lately received to the communion of the Church; of whom fourteen were students in the Academy. The church is ministered to by Bev. David Monfort, and has received fortyfour additions during the year. Fulton, Mo., the seat of Westminster College, still enjoys reviving influences.
