D. 1857, and the following preamble and resolutions were adopted by a unanimous vote: Whebeas, Our beloved pastor, the Eev. John Moore, has, 4>n a recent occasion, intimated from the pulpit his wish to change his field of ministerial labor, and has also tendered to the congregation his resignation of the pastoral relation ; and whereas it is now fully understood to be his earnest desire and purpose to prosecute the same to its issue; now, therefore, be it Resolved, That while we very deeply regret this decision' of our beloved pastor, and deplore the loss we are about to sustain by his removal from us, still, we know no abatement of our confidence iUj and affection for _hini, continuing, as ever, to esteem him " very highly in love for Ms work's sake."

The Old Brick Church. This -venerable building is no more. The congregation which long worshipped there, and for many years under the ministry of Dr. Gardiner Spring, having mainly removed 1' up-town," the lot was sold, some months ago, and the building was, last week, demolished. The sanctuary of G-od must give place to worldly business! The spot upon which the old church, stood, is to sustain a building for the Ifew York Times. One hundred and thirty years ago, Jonathan Edwards declined a call to an infant _dhurch of Presbyterians in New York, because, " on account*"of the smallness of the society, he did not think there was a rational prospect; of answering the good end proposed, by settling there as a minister." What a mistake! Ninety years ago, the triangular lot, the site of the Brick Church, was given by the city to the congregation, because an enterprise so Jar from the centre of business , must need aid. Now, what a change! Business has advanced to the site then so dist...

Tallahassee Mission. We have a letter from Miss "M. H. Mc-Kean, of this Mission, addressed to the children ; which they may expect to see next week. Miss _McKean speaks of the enjoyment of much happiness, and excellent health, though from a deprivation of help, she is ardently engaged " from early dawn till eight P. M." She says, two young ladies could find ample employment, just now; and asks if there'are not some of the Christian sisters desirous of consecrating themselves to the work. . As to qualifications, Miss McKean says, in the words of the Secretaries of the Board, " None but persons of sound constitutions, cheerful dispositions, and a willingness to make sacrifices for the sake of Christ and their fellow-men, are regarded as suitable persons for this work." But, are there not many such—many in whom are combined all these qualifications ? The health of the Institution, the past Winter, has been without a parallel.

The following is a correct copy of the minute: '" Presbytery earnestly recommend to all its members, ministers, and elders, to take such action in their respective congregations as, in their judgment, will best secure a wide circulation of the Church History prepared by the late Rev.

Decision in the Dred Scott Case. The decision of the Uuited States .Supreme Court in this case has been delivered by Chief Justice Taney." It is a fall and elaborate statement of the views of the Court. They have decided the following, which are important points: Fir$t. That negroes, whether slaves or free; that is, men of the African race; are not citizens cf the United States by the Constitution. Second. That the ordinance of 1787 had no independent constitutional force or legal effect subsequent to the adoption of the constitution and could not operate of itself to confer freedom, or citizenship, witHin the North-Western territory, ¦on negroes not citizens by the Constitution. Third. That the provision of the Act, of 1820, _«ommonly called the Missouri Compromise, is, so far as it undertook to exclude negro slavery from, and communicate freedom and citizenship to negroes in the Northern part of the Louisiana secession, was a legislative act, exceeding the powers of Congress, an...

Jorap _Jnldligmte. lent fits of vomiti _ng immediately after leaving the table j and I have just been informed that the whole town has been more or less affected in the sime way, by bread baked by a Chinese shopman. We are so surrounded by the scoundrels, that it is hardly possible to guard against their designs; and the atrocious blood money' .edicts issued by the Canton government, have set on foot a system of assassination and kidnapping. How this state of things will end, it is impossible to say ; but, .notwithstanding the injury to our interests, I cannot, regret that the Canton people are at last about to meet their deserts. Trifling as was the original _^ matter in dispute, the time must Mave comesooner or later, when the humiliating position of foreigners could be no longer endured. At the other port3, it is altogether different. The Canton people are as much hated by the Northerners, as foreigners are in the South; and the _ShaDgbssmen openly express their satisfactio...
