_WititlUuttni_. A _ISTEW _PREACHEB FOR THE MASSES IN LONDON. A new preacher, by name Eichard Weaver, formerly a prize-fighter and a collier in the North, has appeared in London, and is producing very deep and wide-spread impressions by open air addresses, on large masses of the population. He was announced first of all by a handbill on the afternoons, td " preach" and " sing," in the" Cumberland Market. And " sing," as well as " preach ," - he can do to the meltiDg down of hundreds. One night, addressing a number of poor men and women on the words, " They shall return to Zion with songs," he said: "I was always fond of singing j I believe I was born singing. But the songs I used to sing are not the songs I love now. "Oh my dear men_^ you sing ' Britons never, never shall be slaves;' but what slaves you are to your own lusts, to the devil, to the landlord! "I used to sing, _<We won't go home till morning;' the !:H>_d!_eid loves to tsar that. I've sung that five ni...

' (/_OITNTRY JOURNALISM. LETTJER FROM A CITY TO A COUNTRY EDITOR. .. New York, April 3, I860.—Friend _Fletcher.

Allo\ me, then, as one who spent his most hopeful anal observant years in a country printing ofiice, and _uho sincerely believes that the art of conducting jountry (or city) newspapers has not yet obtainec its ultimate perfection, to set before you a few hints on making up an interesting and popular _gazette for a rural district like yours. I. Begin with & clear conception that the subject of deepest interest to an average human being is himself: _nejit to that, he is most concerned about his neighbors. Asia and the Tonga islands stand a long way sifter these in his regard. It does seem to me that ihost country journals are oblivious as to these vital truths.

AGASSIZ ON DARWIN. _^ Mr. Darwin has spent twenty years in elaboration of a theory, according to which' the oyster, the elephant, the eagle, and man —in a word, all animals, vertebrate and invertebrate, spring from the same original parent! Professor Agassiz has so brayed this theory in a mortar with a pestle that its author will have some trouble to find its fragments. In his "Contributions to the Natural History of the United States," from advanced sheets of which extracts are given in the July number of the American Journal of Science and Arts, he says among other things: " The Arguments presented by ' Darwin have not made the slightest impression on my mind nor modified in any way the views I have already propounded." " Had Mr. Darwin or his followers furnished a single fact to show that.individuals change in the course of time in such a manner as to produce, at last, species different from those known before, the state of the case might be different." "The origin of all t...

ADVERTISEMENTS. AMERICAN WATCHES, MADE BY THE AMERICAN WATCH COMPANY, AT Wattham, Mass. Attention is invited to the following statement and accompanying letters of recommendation and testimonials, in fevor of these celebrated Watches. A gold medal was awarded the Company by the American Institute, at New York, in 1857. The Company also received the first premium—a gold medal—from the Franklin Institute, Philadelphia , in 1858. These Watches have now been in the market for nearly ten years, daring 'which, time they have been tested as to accuracy, durability, and reliability in every conceivable manner, and have proved themselves to be the most satisfactory time-pieces ever offered to the public. This result has been brought about by a strict application of mechanical science to the construction of the Watch from its very inception, rendering it, when finished, mathematically correct in al its proportions, and necessarily as perfect a time-keeper as it Is po_£ Bible to make. - ...

She is now twenty-four years of age and supporting herself by various uses of her pen. She (Josie H.) is yet to be famous. I am very sure." Winsome baby Bunn!

lf I HAD MINDED MY MOTHER. I went a few weeks since into a jail to see: a young man who had once been a Sabbath-school scholar. * The keeper took a large bunch of keys and led us through the long, gloomy halls, unlocking one door after another, until at length he opened the door of the room where sat the young man we had come to see. The walls of the room were of coarse stone, the floor of thick plank, and before the windows were strong iron bars. Without, all was beautiful; the green fields, the sweet flowers, and the singing birds were as lovely as ever; but this young man could enjoy none of these—no, never again could he go out, for he was condemned to death! Yes, he had killed a man, and now he himself must die. Think of it , only twenty years old, and yet a murderer! 1 sat down beside him and talked with him.— " Oh," said he, as the tears rolled down his cheeks , " I did not mean to do it, but I was drunk: then I got angry, and before I knew what I was about, I killed hi...

A KINDLY REPROOF. John Wesley, having to travel some distance in a stage coach, fell in with * a pleasant-tempered, well informed officer. His conversation was sprightly and entertaining, but frequently mingled with oaths. When they were about to take the last stage, Mr. Wesley took the officer apart, and after expressing the pleasure he had enjoyed in his company, told him he was thereby encouraged to ask of him a very great favor. " I would take a pleasure in obliging you," said the officer, " and I am sure you will not make an unreasonable request." " Then,'' said Mr. Wesley, " as we have to travel together some- time, I beg that if I should so far forget myself as to swear, you will kindly reprove me." - The officer immediately saw the motive, felt the _foi_*ee of the request, and with a smile thanked Mr. Wesley.

THE SLAVE TRADE. A SOUTH SIDE VIEW. Wbife vigorous efforts are being- made by politicians and zealous upholders of slavery at the South, to' pervert public sentiment on the morality of the slave-trade; and, alas! with a great and astonishing degree of success, we are sometimes cheered to meet with such clear and bold utterances on the subject from Southern sources, as the following from the columns of the North Carolina' Presbyterian. "Yet have I left me seven thousand," &c. A REMONSTRANCE. ' During our recent visit to the South, we were surprised and pained to find that the number of persons favoring the re-opening of the slave-trade is greatly on the increase. The number has largely increased in the last five years. The common impression that it is only a reckless politician here and another there, who approves of the traffic, is erroneous. A change has taken place in the minds of many who are not politicians, and it has extended to all classes and professions. Ten...

THE ECLIPSE OF JULY AS SEEN IN SANTANDAE. Mr. Leopold Mareh, writing from Santandar, July 18, to the London News, gives the following highly interesting account of certain phenomena observed duriiffg the late total eclipse;. " From an early hour of the morning of the 18th, several British _savans_, whom the enlightened liberality of the English _^Government had sent to Santandar in the magnificent Himalaya, might have been seen preparing their instruments for the approaching phenomenon ' in the garden of a much-esteemed counteyman; " but the cloudy sky was reflected on their brows—rthey feared a disappointment. The weather for some days previously had been gloomy; and not only they, but the ignorant curiously watched the sun with anxiety as one moment \he struggled forth in splendor from a rent in the driving vapors, and then succumbed before their obstinate advance. The first contact took place at lh. 45m. 26s. (Greenwich mean time.) A dark perpendicular riband appeared in th...

TO MY MOTHIE Mr mother ! Manhood 's anxious brow And sterner cares have long been mine; Yet turn I fondly,to thee now, As when upon thy bosom's ahrine My infant griefs wore sweetly hashed to rest, And thy low-whispered prayers my slumbers bleat. I never call that gentle name; _^ My Mother ! but I am again E'n as a child—the very same That prattled at thy knee; and fain "Would I forget, in momentary joy, That I no more can be thy happy boy—Thine artless boy, to whom thy smile Was sunshineand thy frown sad night _. Though rare, that frown, and brief the while It veiled from me thy loving light—For well-conrfed task, ambition's highest bliss To win from thine approving lips a kiss. I've lived through foreign lands to roam, And gazed on many a classic scene, But oft the thought of that dear h ome Which once was ourswould intervene, And bid me close in tears my languid eye, To think of thee, and those sweet days gone by. That pleasant home of fruits and flowers, Where, by the Hudso...

,- "For the-American Presbyterian, UNHAPPY. ' " I am not happy,"_said a child, as he tossed aside his cap and ball, and threw himself upon the meadow grass. _, " I am not happy, for I ran away to play when I knew mother wished me to do errands for her," and he looked up at the blue sky, and wondered if the angels knew his thoughts, and if he would ever be good enough to dwell with them in their happy home. "All these things do not make me happy," muttered a maiden, as she glanced at her rich attire; and, unclasping her costly jewels, laid them upon the dressing table: then she turned from her mirror, for the radiant beauty of her face, though often praised, did not satisfy her heart; that craved a . more substantial good, even the love which Christ bestows upon mankind. " Even though I have toiled hard and amassed great wealth, yet I am not, as I expected, happy," soliloquized the millionaire; and he wondered at the unsatisfied state of _hutanind, little thinking it was becaus...
