Punctual to the minute, as is the case throughout the whole extent of the admirably conducted "Pennsylvania Central," we started about one o? clock, and kept steadily on until seven, A.

AID FOR SYEIA. Since writing the above, we have received through.private sources, another interesting letter from Mrs. Benton, in Mount Lebanon. It has pleased God to spare the two missionaries and their little village from the terrible butchery and rapine that have prevailed all around them. Great credit is certainly due to the wise management of Mr. Benton both in the hour of trial and for a long time previously. He appears to have the hearts and confidence of the people, and also of their rulers; and has thus been made the instrument, under God, of preventing much crime and bloodshed. He appeals now to us for the means to clothe, from the storms of the coming winter, many of these .fifty thousand destitute ones, who have lost their earthly all; and many of whose fathers, brothers, and sons, have fallen in the massacres. God's peo|4e here can now do more to assist the missionary work in Syria than they have ever had opportunity to do before. If the poor semi-heathen Maronite Chr...
