THE GEEAT _CTTESE Ol1 SC0TIAKD. jNothing has surprised us more than to find the prevalence of drinking In this land and among all classes of society! v Evenf among the ministers there are few abstainers, as they are called here. Almost everywhere, at the houses of ministers, the glasses are passed round two or three times at the close of the dinner, and all are expected'to partake. And upon making a friendly, call, yon are asked to take a glass of wine. ;i "_^fe were told, _tjefore leaving home, that _wes _coplo! n_. ot visitstbis country without taking a social glass!

AN SEl-OSllGTra _ASSUMPTION. ThB-fact that; some of the most distinguished men of the United Statesare not much indebted for: their_, position to scholastic training, has given rise to a common _^notion that the distinguished youth _atthe college or university generally falls behind _mttieeompetitibns of the world. It is undeniable that some of bur first statesmen, lawyers, clergymen, &c.,_have been men who did not senjpy the benefits of thorough early education. This is not true, however, of the public men of Ameriea generally, especially in the Southern States. 'The subject was "discussed some yeats ! ago,in the British Parliament, and on..that.

TE1 AGE OF VIOLENCE. Oar age seems to be not more remarkable for great religions movements, than for the manifestation of an extraordinary and criminal spirit of violence among tbose who are not reached by these movements. Time was when records of violence and crime were confined to a specific type of journals, of bad standing in the profession. Now any jonrnal which undertakes to give the current news, becomes of necessity, to a large extent, a criminal calendar and a police gazette, few matters of intelligence demand so frequent mention as these. Type-setters must see imaginary weapons of death flourish among their columns, and the pressman's ink mast seem _inonrnadined with the bloody recital which it communicates to the white page. Since the peace of Europe was broken by the French [Revolution in 1848, the ears of the Christian world have been unceasingly assailed with the noise of war and the equipping and assembling of armaments on a scale of grandeur and destrnctivene...

By Solon Bobineoft, _New York. Fowler & Wells, publishers. 12mo. pp. 343. This book will be found valuable in all families aa tending to cultivate principles of wholesome economy, but particularly so to families of limited means , or those in which the* domestic education of the female head has been neglected, as alas"! is too often the case.

THE _PRESBYTERIAN QUARTERLY EEVIEW. The number for July, delayed in order to a complete presentation of matters connected with the late General Assembly, is on.our table. The size of the type is reduced so as to admit a greater amount of matter, and yet not so much as to interfere with entire comfort and ease in the perusal. The literature of the General Assembly occupies a targe place in its pages. Not only does the review gain in importance by this means to every minister and layman interested in the history of the Church, but the opportunity thus afforded for these debates, acts, lectures aud sermons, and this portraiture and characterization of the Assemblies to pass into the domain of literature , is by no means of small moment. AST. I-—Ante-Revolutionary _History of Episcopacyt —-is the address delivered b y Rev. Samuel M. Hopkins, D. D., before the General Assembly, May 21,1860, by request of the Presbyterian Historical Society. The theme, which, ever since its announ...

A RESPONSE FROM NEW ENGLAND. In your paper of the 5th ult., I noticed, with much interest, an article headed, " New England" Being a New England man, in every sense, so far as birth, training, attainments, and residence are connected, I read the article, in question, with no common interest, and the more for knowing the writer. ¦ It may be as well forme to say here, that I am an old man, being years the onward side of seventy. My recollections will go back more than half a century in the history of the New England Churches, with a limited knowledge of PresBytelian Ghurehes. _v But to return to the article in question. It must be acknowledged on all sides that the writer has reviewed the history of N. S. Presbyterian, end Congregational Churches, and their present antagonistical position with great calmness and brotherly kindness. If it were not so, it would be unlike the author, and tend more to divide than Unite, which is the object of the writer. I well rememberwhat were the...

ANNALS OF THE POOR. ''WORSE OFF THAN A SERYANT." Some eighteen or twenty years ago a fair intelligent young woman, the daughter of a lieutenant in the English army stationed in India, married a young and rising army-officer in that place. She was happy. Heaven seemed to be shedding its gilded rays upon her pathway, and the journey of life was as a May day, all joy and gladness. She lived in ease and luxury, having her two servants attendingto her wants. Her father, wearied with his foreign 8ervic_«j _" and perhaps looking forward to a grave among his ancestors , sailed for "home;" leaving his daughter and her new connections behind; but sickness seized upon the husband's constitution, and he too was compelled to leave the scenes of his risin g fortune again to "look upon his native hills. They arrived in Ireland—the husband , wife and daughter; the first, to find a resting place among the dead; the others to enter upon the busy cares of this world, and be cast about upon its...

PHILADELPHIA CITY. Passenger Railways.—There are 18 of these railways in Philadelphia; with over 150 miles of track: Col. J. B.

The tipstave was suspended by Judge Allison, and warned to expect further punishment if Cross was not forthcoming. He has since been retaken by officer Porter, from whom he escaped.

Origin of Prevailing Church Manners.—The Hartford Courant says that the custom of giving the back of the pew in church to the ladies, originated in times of the Indian wars, when the male members of the family always took their muskets to church, when it was, of course, very proper that they should have the front of the pew, to -rush out to repel an attack. Then the inner seat was the one of safety. The men also never kneeled in prayer or bowed their heads, as either was an unsafe position.
