"The Bible in my,TrnnJ[. " A few evenings ago, I was present_^ at a tea-table, where the conversation turned upon praying " before folks ;" some of tjbe party contending that where two travellers chanced to lodge in the same room for a night, it would * look Pharisaical fpr one or the _ottej: to kneel down and "say his prayers "in the presence of the ' other; while the, other party defended th _^ e propri ety of it, and asf _terfced it to be, aMfy.

Pitt Money. The origin of " pin money" was as follows : Toward the close of the fifteenth, century, an epoch that marks a transition style in the dress of ladies, pins were looked upon with great favor as«New Year's gifts. They displaced the old wooden skewer, previously used to fasten ladies' dresses, which no effort of skill, no burnishing of embellishment, could convert into a slight appendage. Pins, in that simple age of _,the world, were luxuries of high price, and the gift was frequently compounded for in money, an allowance that became so necessary to the want of ladies of quality, that it resolved itself at last into a regular stipend, very properly called " pin money.'' * —N.Y. Ledger.

low to Obtain the Genuine Flavor of Coffee. Knighton's " Foreign Life in Ceylon" furnishes the following hints derived from long experience, for preparing coffee. ' The aroma which resides in the essential oil of the coffee-berry, is gradually dissipated after roasting, and, of course, still more so after being ground. In order to enjoy the full flavor in perfection, the berry should pass at once from the roasting-pan to the mill, and thence to the coffe-pot; and again, after having been made, should be mixed, when almost fit boiling-heat, with the hot milk. It must be very bad coffee, indeed, whi_'chj _? these precautions being followed will not afford an agreeable and exhilerating drink.

You have passed through the long preparatory course of study and discipline j you have been licensed, ordained, and installed pastor of a flock. You are, fairly started in. the. work of the ministry. Work you will find it, if you honestly discharge the duties of the pastoral office. Your principal anxiety and labor, in the outset, will be directed to the preparation of sermons. With your views, this will be _arduous; bat pleasant work.

From the Christian World. The Mission in Italy. We give a letter, dated Nov. 18th, 1861, frota the Rev. E. Edwin Hall, the Society's agent at Florence, which we are sure will be read with uncommon interest. A great door for the Gospel is now open in Italy. Our readers will see that Mr. Hall has 'commenced in earnest. Shall we have the means to do a great work there ? His letter speaks for itself. Is there no ehureh that will give us the means to buy that house in Porto Ferraio, that it may be used as a plaee of worship—a place for holding a Sabbath School , and be the property of the Waldensian Church ? Is there no wealthy man in our churches, or little association of such men, who can give us 2,500 or 3,000 francs ($500 or $600) for that good object? After enforcing most earnestly the importance of having regularly and sufficiently the means which he will need, Mr. Hall goes on to say: " I need riot urge the importance of the present moment for using all diligence in prosecutin...

For tile Preaby terian Banner. Aid the Chaplains. Messrs. Editors :—I recently noticed a call for a public meeting, to be held in your city, in behalf of our soldiers. What the result of that meeting has been, has not, I believe, been announced. To my mind, there is something very wonderful in that dispensati on of " God's providence which has called from their homes and plaoed under military discipline, six hundred thousand of the active, patriotic young men of our country, and furnished each regiment with a reli gious teacher, at the expense of the Government. It has been stated that the average salary of the chaplains is |900 j and if so, the nation is paying more than #500,000 per annum for the moral and religious training of our military forces. This is nearly five times as much as our whole Church contributed during the past year to Domestic Missions; and what blessed results might we not hope to see accomplished by such liberality on the part of the Federal Government. ...

.... r .>_i ' .*>". . ^^ **e.PreslJjtertanJBannsr. Oil City. This is a new place that has sprung Tip in the wake of the Oil business, in Western Pennsylvania. It is situated on the Allegheny River, seven miles above Franklin, the county seat of Venango County, and at the mouth of Oil Creek. In this vicinity appears to be the centre of the great oil basin, that is giving to this part of Pennsylvania a world-wide notoriety. Oil has been gathered here for almost a century, by the present white population; and from unmistakable evidences, for two or three centuries preceding that, by some people to us unknown. Along the valley of Oil Creek, from the mouth to a distance of fifteen miles, wells are in operation that yield from fifty to two thousand barrels per day; and this by a spontaneous flow from the depth of from four to six hundred feet •in ilia solid rock. As a natural consequence, there has been a wondrous tide of population flowing into this region. Oil city has...

Bules for Public Speaking. We are enabled to recommend, with eonfidence, the following rules to those who would be successful public speakers: 1. Endeavor to possess yourself wholly of your subject. 2. Be calm and self-collected, and i speak to the audience under a lively consciousness that they are expecting instruction and edification, and of the importance of acquitting yourself well: 3. Be sure to pitch -your voice low enough at the commencement, of your discourse. It will then find its natural tone as you proceed. 4. Let your enunciation of every syllable and, so far: as _possible, of the sound of every letter, be clear and distinct, and you will then be heard and understood in every part of the largest hajl, though your voice may not_/be loud- * 5 _^Keep' the_^lungs well inflatedand speak mostlyiby_^e" movement of the abdominal muscles_^ r>i ;_./,, ' 6.

Beligions Beading. It can be no matter of surprise to an observing Christian, than so many church members exhibit no evidence of growth in grace. They do little to increase their knowledge of Divine truth, by which the soul is fed,-and its spirituality deepened. Professing Christians sometimes omit all study of the Bible from one Sabbath to another, and their reading is dissipating and undevotionalJ The New-York JSvangeUstB&yBi i ( _jyfrj minister, who will take the pains to investigate the matter, may learn some curious facts in regard to the supposed inability of Christian families to supply themselves with religious reading. He may find two, or even three, daily secular prints in a household where no 3crap from the religious press is seen. He may find centretables supplied -with < ¦ ' Parlor Annuals/' or "Christian Offerings/' or other expensive ornamental _^books_, which are never read, if, indeed, worth? reading ; while the religious paper, at one-fourth of t...
