THE DENOMINATIONAL SPIRIT OF THE LAST ASSEMBLY. The'position taken by the Assembly as to denominationalism, was in the line that has been pursued for so many years past. The action on home inissions was passed by a unanimous vote. Separation from the American Home Missionary Society and separate denominational action , in the work of home missions, are inevitable. Yet all the steps in this movement were taken with deliberation and with entire kindness towards our Congregational brethren. It is no wonder that our action is commending itself to our brethren of other denominations , and to the sister branches of our own Church. We have reason to thank God and take courage. Th"e clouds that seemed ready to envelop us, have nearly all passed away. Our Church has never Stood in so steady, so united, and so prosperous a condition, since the division. It is at once firmly denominational and truly catholic. Its tendencies to ultraism in co-operation, have been checked by the severe les...

For the American Presbyterian. AGED CLERGYMEN AND THEIR LABORS_^ Mr. Editor:—At the last annual meeting of the Onondaga Synod, I learned bythe narratives of the state of religion given by the representatives of the several churches, that the three most interesting revivals of religion were enjoyed in those places where the three eldest ministers were laboring. It was to me an? interesting fact that God thus honored those veteran soldiers of the cross, and gave them such Signal victories over the enemy, just as they were feeling that ithey must soon put off their armour and put on the crown. In thit-regionVthere has been_^b) % very-great ex--ten_^_tin the? 'churches_^ a? strong-desire ftOiireaeive the labors of youog_^ministers_^ and, as theresul_^ a change of pastors and stated supplies has often occurred.

WONDERFUL CAREER OF: VINCENT FERRARA, THE WHITEFIELIJ OF THE5 MIDDLE AGES. It was near the close ofrthe year 1398, and at the age of forty-two _yearsj|that Vincent gave himself up fully to the work in_^which all the feelings of his heart were so strongly enlisted. Spurning, as unworthy bribes, all the'"dignities and honors that invited his arubitioo*«and were within his reach, he set forth upon his: mission with, a zeal that permitted no intermission of his labors , and scarcely the rest of a sin_^b' 'day till the close of his wondrous life. Almost every portion of the Christian world was the scene of his labors, and the most surprising accounts are given of the effects of his eloquence. _Hjoame spread from land to land, and princes Jjnapeople were alike anxious to hear a man who _$f>njoined to all his other qualities the reputation of«, saint. Wherever he went , invitations met him from abroad to visit distant cities and _villagesx._Tior was the desire to hear him grat...

THE GOODNESS OF GOD. * The Almighty has acted with the souls of men as he has with the different countries of the earth. He might have given fruits of all kinds to every land • but if every land did not require the fruits of another, there would be no fellowship maintained witb the others. Hence it comes to pass, that to one he gave a superfluity of wine, to another of oil, to another of cattle, to another of the fruite of the field; so that, since one gives what the other has not, and the latter supplies what the former wants, the separated lands are united by a communication of gifts. And, like different countries, the souls of saints are related' to one another, by reciprocally communicating what has been imparted to them, as different countries share with one another their respective productions, they are all united together in one love." -. ' ¦¦ ' Gregory.

_MSITER FROM A TBAVELLIHG C0E-* _BESFOKDENT. Dear Bro. Mears:—According to the" promise made you, I seize upon the first suitable moment to jot down the incidents and impressions of/my journey. >I left Jersey City on Tuesday morning, at 7.15 A. M., and arrived at lltnira at 5.30-_*. m. Up to this point, the New York and Erie R. R., for the most part, passes through a grandly romantic section of country. From Middletown (67 miles from New York) the country becomes more rugged,, the scenery wild and impressively natural, and although the soil appears to be of little value for cultivation, yet it exhibits to us the truth that nothing is made in vain, by filling the mind with emotions of awe and, sublimity, and enabling us to recognise the Great Creator in his manifold- works. The scenery is greatly diversified until the _traveller reaches Binghampton (216 miles from New York,) when it becomes quite mountainous. E LMIRA , ' SENECA LAKE , GENEVA, CANANDAIGUA. Elmira is...

THE DEATH J OF THE _RIGHTEOUS. Three bright illustrations of the transcendent worth, of religion as an element of human character, and as a comfort both to the dying, and to those who survive them, have recently been given in the death of those venerable women, Mrs. Bethune and Mrs. Gardiner Spring, and the sudden and premature removal of young Hawes, of Connecticut. We do not remember that any special interest attached to the closing scenes of the life of Mrs. Bethune—-it was of little consequence. The Instre of a well-spent, active, devoted and singularly useful Christian life of unusual length, was enough to light up the passage into the dark valley in the view of her friends, and to enable them and all others to realize how supremely satisfactory is such a life as was hers, and how far above the highest and most brilliant career which mere worldliness or selfishness has ever ran. Mrs. Spring bad been the companion of the now venerable Gardiner Spring for more than fifty ...

_< _-«¦».» — A SABBATH IN _PITTSBTTRG. Pittsburg, Aug. 13,1S6Q. . Dear Editor:—I have spent a Sabbath in the Iron City, or as some call it, the City of Smoke;—let me tell you. about it. Without difficulty I found Dr. Kendall's church, the one in which our General Assembly held its sessions last spring. The Sabbath School was well attended for the season, with a good sized Infant School, and an adult Bible Class, led by a gentleman whose silvery locks showed well in such an occupation. Strange to say, he held a French Bible, and constantly gave us the translation of his version, which frequently threw light upon the passages. The church, I found much changed in appearance since I was last there, when Dr. Riddle was its pastor. The beautiful fresco work, the gorgeous stained windows, the well-played organ and efficient choir, all helped to set off a most interesting sermon by Rev. Mr. Hull, a gentleman from New England, who officiated in Dr. Kendall's absence. "It is a fa...

SCHOOLS FOR YOOTG LADIES. Our city abounds with institutions for the instruction of young ladies of a very high character, some of the best of which are advertised in our columns. The well-known. Institute' of Rev. Dr. Smith, 1530 Arch street,, is a delightful location, where a pleasant home and every facility for acquiring an accomplished education may be found. Dr. Smith is an. esteemed , minister of our body; his term commences September 17th. Mrs. Gertrude J. Cary will reopen at 1323 Spruce street, September 10, with a resident French teacher, a great advantage in acquiring a new language.

_PAtTLTS IKCHtmCHES. We have not lost sight of the faults of ministers, but just now, there are two faults in churches wiiieh we think it timely to mention. 1. A minister is invited to preach for a Christian congregation. An officer of the church waits upon him, and is very polite. The minister assents , and the* brother inviting thanks him warmly. The minister, perhaps, walks two miles in July or August to reach the church, conducts the services as appropriately and preaches as well as he can. He comes down, from the pulpit, and not one living man of the whole congregation takes him by the hand or says a solitary word to him. So at 12 o'clock he starts to walk two miles home, with the vertical sun destroying his shade, and of course, he has for reflection as he walks along, the feeling that be is esteomed very highly In love for his works' sake. Now, in contrast to this, we know churches where all the official gentlemen, at least, come up to shake hands With the brother. Th...

KING OF _JERUSALEM. We copy the following curious and suggestive paragraph from the Evening Bulletin of this city: "The French Imperial Court is still living; in the greatest retirement, broken only by short excursions in the neig hborhood of St. Cloud; The longest of these was when tBe Emperor rode to Rambouillet, in company with Baron Rothschild, while the Empress went to Compiegne_, meeting her august consort on the road, in returning. Baron Rothschild is at present exceedingly intimate with liis Imperial Majesty, he being almost the only visitor now received at the chateau. Nearly every day Napoleon III. is seen promenading in the Park of St. Cloucl arm in arm with the great banker; and scarcely a dinner occurs at which the latter has not the honor of sitting at the rig ht hand of his Imperial Majesty. Of course the ¦¦ ' political gossips draw their own conclusion from this particular intimacy. According to some of their on dits x it is the intention of the Emperor to ma...

BORROWING WITHOUT ACKNOWLEDGMENT. At least two articles cut from our exchanges slipped into our last week's columns without proper acknowledgment, though every pains was taken by the Editor to secure it. We refer to "Agassiz on Darwin/' a valuable article from our neighbor of the Presbyterian of this city, and the " Railroad. Switch," in which some important lessons were drawn from the highways of modern travel, taken, we think, from the Boston Cotfgregationaltst. Oar aim is to give credit for all articles originating in the papers from which we extract them. While on this topic, we might as well call attention to the fact that some of our contemporaries areepntent to rely on us for intelligence, or to borrow from our columns without due credit. If the New York press, which boasts of being at the centre of sill intelligence from the old world and the new, finds us of this " village" beforehand with them on matters of general interest, they are welcome,to the fruits of our la...

BAPTISTS HOT SECTAKtpr. We eopy the following from a Baptist paper: "A true Baptist, one consistent in following his principles, is not a sectarian, because he neither allows himself to be cut off from, nor does he cut any one off from, the Church of Christ " As that paper advocates close communion, we beg to inquire, how any church can, by any possibility, more completely cut off Christians from the Church, than by refusing to commune with them ? It will be observed that our Baptist brethren grant that they refuse to admit to the communion of the Lord's supper, true Christians ; believers in Christ; men with whom they rejoice to hope that they will commune in heaven ; men whom Christ has received, and whom the Spirit of God has regenerated. With these they refuse to sit at the table of the Lord in their own_^burcb, or to sit at the Lord's table in their chnrch. This is certainly "catting; them off" from the Church as far as human power can doit. * Baptists often attempt to ...

CHRISTIAN HONOR <*A. Christian is the highest style of man." A _Christian _minister ought to be the highest style of & Christian. The word honor and its derivatives occur one hundred and eighty-six times in the Bible. It is the kind of honesty that would lead one to do tight when the law would not seize him if be did wrong, or when no one would know it if he did wrong, or when it was no advantage to him, or a disadvantage in a worldly point of view, to do right. _|Ionor is the quality that leads us to say of a man, that his word is as good as his bond, or that we would trust him with uncounted gold. The man who has it, is emineutly trust-worthy. He that is faithful in that Which is least, is faithful also in that which is greatest. Honor is a very high form of honesty. The _honesfum in Latin, means especially the honorable. We regard a church as a very high trust which is committed by the Presbytery to a minister, when he is installed over it. What then shall ...
