THE DEATH OF CHARLES GOODYEAH.

THE GREAT STONES OF BAALBEE. A correspondent of the Rochester Democrat and American thus writes: From Damascus we went to Baalbek" , and passed on the way the fountain of JPijeh, the principal 'source of tbe Abana. As we saw_.the clear broad rushing stream that gushed forth all ,at once from its mountain cave, and thought how that same water was the secret of all the waving green that encircled Damascus, we were ready'to'echo the exclamation of _Uaaman, the Syrian, " Are not _Ababa and Pharpar_, rivers of Damascus, better than, all the waters of Israel ?" The next evening we saw the six great columns of the Temple of the Sun at Baalbek against the white or Lebanon, just as the sun himself was sinking in the west. No Roman ruin;-nor even the temples of Aaatum can at all compare in pure magnificence of outline or ormament with these sp lendid relics of imperial greatness. The great stones of the foundations, planted, perhaps, originally to sustain a tempU for the worship of Ph...

"THOUGHT." Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat or whatfye shall drink. Matt. vi. 25. This " take no thought ,"is certainly an inadequate translation * , in our present English, of the Greek original. The words seem to exclude and condemn that just forward-looking care which belongs to man, and _differences him from the beasts, which' live only in the present; and most English critics have lamented the inadvertence of our authorized versi_' on, which in bidding us "take no thought" for the necessaries of ! life, proscribes to us what is impracticable'id itself , and would be a breach of Christian duty, even were it possible. But there is no inadvertence here. Whenour translation was made, "take no thought" was a perfectly correct rendering of the original. " Thought7 ' was then constantly used as an equivalent to anxiety or solicitous care, as let us witness this passage from Bacon:— "Harris, an alderman in London, was put to trouble, and died with thought and ...

Boston_: T_^cknor & Fields, MDCCCLX. 2 Vols. I6mo. pp. xviu. 310; vii. 327. This beautiful edition of the-American pnblishers is printed from early sheets, _furnished them by the " Children of Thomas Hood." Of course, these memorials are entertaining, opening as they do to inspection the personal history of a character so marked and so interesting. They are the oftrepeated story of pinched, suffering and overtasked genius. The son says, rather inelegantly: Almost my father's last words were: " Lord—say, ar ise, take up thy cross and follow me." A woodcut is given of the monument to Hood which was raised by universal subscriptions, among which were such donations as the following:— "trifling sums from Manchester, Preston, Bid deford, and-Bristol, from a few .poor needle-women, fr...

THE DEATH 01 INFANTS. Now, while the scythe of the harvester is passing swiftly among the standing crops and levelling them to the earth, the keener, snrer scythe of the great reaper, Death, goes to and fro among the ranks of men. Bat it is not only the mature that he gathers into his great garner; at this season especially, it is the tender, the frail,—snch as are just putting forth the greenness and freshness of infant life, that feel the keen edge of his devouring knife. How many little graves are opened at this season of the year 1 and what treasures of the household are swallowed up in their narrow but dreadful gulfs I How many;, bright eyes, the light of the family circle, grow dim! How many voices tuneful with infant laughter are hushed! How many pattering little feet ore silenced! What interesting growth and expansion of body and mind are interrupted 1 What vivid hopes and darling plans of parents are crushed is the bud! Have you never beheld the fond mother bending, w...

DISCUSSION Off THE _BELIOTOTTS FBESS At the late annual meeting of the General Association of Massachusetts, one of the questions discussed by previous appointment was: "Is there any thing to be desired, and if so, what, in the conducting of our Baligious Press ? " A wide field of remark was opened, and a great variety of opinions was expressed. Almost every one seemed to feel himself competent to give advice, and seemed to think the thing could be better done than it was done. Rev. Dr. Todd introduced the discussion by quoting the remark of an ex-governor, that " the New York Observer had fallen from grace and that the Independent had never been born again." Whether t)r. Todd endorsed this sentiment, or how it was received in the Association, does not appear in the published accounts. . " Various defects in conducting religious journals were specified. One brother did not like to have so many personalities. Another wanted less quack medicines advertised. One said that minis...

WHO ABE THE DBTTZES? It is difficult to gather from the information at hand, much about these peculiar people, who are now attracting the attention of the civilized world by their ferocious plundering_, burning and butchering the so-called Christians of the Lebanon district of Syria. They have always been quiet and reserved about their peculiar doctrines, and do not attempt to promulgate thein; but they are a ferocious and warlike people, evincing a deadly hatred toward* the Papal _f Christians, or Maronites, residing among them. It must not be forgotten that prior to these disturbances, there were but about one hundred Protestant native Christians in all our Mission Churches in Syria. Now most of these are murdered. It is the Papal Christians, the Maronites, principally whom the Druzes have been slaying. The Druzes number one hundred thousand;, and the Maronites one ,hundred and eighty thousand, the: whole population of Syria being about twelve hundred and fifty thousand. The...

THE MABTYBS OF THE MUTINY No one will take up this little volume, issued by out Publication Committee, without finishing it. Its thrilling narratives of the trials and triumphs of Christian courage in Christian men and women amid th _^ e horrors of the great Indian rebellion, rivet the attention and stir the heart. We endorse the estimate put upon it by Dr. Henry M. Scudder, who _saya, writing from Paris to a friend-—"I could not find time to open your book till I got on board the steamship Illinois. I read it with the deepest interest. If it attains a circulation equal to its merits, all your wishes in regard to it will-be fulfilled." The rebellion of the Sepoys or Native army of British India, with all its awful deeds of cruelty and blood, has furnished as a compensation a most precious page of history for the church , worthy of a place alongside of that which records the faith and patience of primitive witnesses for the truth. After a few words of introductory matter by Dr....

THE MQEST_, _; messes.

United States. It will be systematically arranged; and fully indexed, and well printea and bound. , In every General Assembly, and very frequently in Synods, Presbyteries, and Sessions, the want of this volume is seen. We have now no method of learning the decisions which have been made on various important points other than by searching the mass of minutes of the successive Assemblies, and of these a f_^ll set can rarely be had The Publication...

THE MASSACRES IN SYRIA. From our own columns, as well as from the daily papers, our readers have been made acquainted with the leading facts in the horrid war of extermination now going on between two parties and races in Syria. The Druzes, on the one band, are a sort of heretical Mohammedans, while the Maronites are nominal Roman Catholics. There is little choice between them, we imagine, as to doctrine or practice. Twenty years ago they were engaged in a similar warfare, from which the so-called Christians came off with decided advantage. They were, no doubt, quite as violent and unrelenting then as the _Drozes are now. The Zahleans, who defeated the Druzes at that time, have been very overbearing and insulting ever since. It was to forestall a general attack, expected by the Druzes, that they rose so suddenly upon the Christians. Mr. Lansing, a missionary of the United Presbyterian Church at Alexandria, says: " Zable contains about 10,000 inhabitants, and if the Druzes ta...
