_DAEX _BftOHS _, Amencaii wpnienhat_'e a _strange mania for dark rooms, but hear what _Florence Hightingalei in her nptes of nursing, says, on the subject? "A dark houso is almost _always an unhealthy _house_^ alway s an ijl-aired house.

For the American Presbyterian. LETTER FBOM THE IT. Y. WILDERNESS. Baquette Lake, July 30th, 1860. After all the back of a tin plate is not a bad* writing desk, and a reversed wooden trough is better than no seat. The smoke of the dying camp-fire, though not intrinsically pleasant to the eyes, is better than the stings of savage insects, and with a fair balance of . the pros and cons, my surroundings may be regarded as still delightful. An abrupt point of land extending into the lake, and covered with a beautiful spruce grove, is oar camping ground. Three bark huts or "camps"- give it much the appearance of an Indian village, while the smoke curling up here and there among the dark evergreens, and the prostrate forms of two deer just brought in by two of the party, might still further help the comparison. If the savage who encamped he_^e a hundred years ago ware to ripe suddenly* from the dead, he might not only claim his gronnds, but identify the very huts, with their accou...

MOVEMENT TOWARDS UNION IN AUSTRALIA. We copy from the Mews of the Churches the following, deeply interesting .account of the discussions between that .liberal and noble-minded prelate, the Bishop of Adelaide, and Rev. T. Binney, an eminent Congregational preacher, who had lately arrived in Australia from- London: Of the discussion on this highly interesting subject, (chiefly between the Bishop,of Adelaide and Mr. Binuey,) we must .speak with very strong praise. It is worthy, on both sides) of the high position of the speakers, and not unworthy of the magnitude of the objects and the preciousness of the interests involved. Both are exceedingly cautious and tentative, as became those who had no authority to bind others to the proposals with which yet each fett himself bound to deal; both are fully aware of a long and complicated history behind, which they have carefully to'avoid raking up; and both are plainly, animated by a very thorough desire to do .what can be done for the g...
