_§mmmm_^$m Mclotyre, Essex co., N_.Y,,, August 6tb, IS60. My last letter left our party asleep iu Walton Club Camp on Raquette Lake, August 2d. The next morning was to resolve the companyfinto two divisions, the one purposing to remain a few days (longer, and then, pass_, out by either theSata-,t»_ae route, or by Brown's Tract, as they had <_joinie ••—the other, consisting of Messrs. Fowler, Boardman, Dewey, and your _correspondent, intending _rto iniake the foot tour of the Adirondacks_, and reach home ultimately by way of LakeChatnplain. Although; a division of the party had been contemplated from the _first, yet when the: time came, the thought of taking two different paths, and of no longer enjoying the lively and pleasant intercourse of the whole baud, was not an agreeable one. Th(»e whom we were to _ldave behind, though acquaintances before, had grown upon our appreciation as we saw them in the free, and natural, and spontaneous character of woodsmen. They had bee...

M0R0SENESS REBUKED. We may, in fact, trace this moveriaerit back for many years. We'do not doubt that the doctrinal revival some thirty or forty years ago _^ has exerted a powerful influence upon the present. The union of the two great sections pf Ulster Presbyterianisni _abbut iwerity years sinee also had a happy effect in prepatirig the way bf the Lord. As the united body engaged .more, earnestly sin sending_=the gospel to Jew _^ . and Gentile,, many began to sighibr a better state, of. thiDgs at home. Ministers preached more, faithfully and felt more deeply the need of the Holy Spirit. Great efforts were made tdsea€_? ter the Seed of divine triith; by operi air preaching, Sabbath schools, and _prayer meetings, and tract distribution.

¦ ' . TBE MILK _ib1 THE W0BD.

HUGH MILLER AND DRINK. .When employed as a mason, it was usual for _tls fellow workmen to have an occasional treat of drink, and one day two glasses of whisky fell to his share, which he swallowed. When he reached home, he found, on opening his favorite book—Bacon's Essays—that the large letters danced before, his eves, and that he could no longer master his senses! " The condition," says he, " into which I had brought inyself, was, I felt, one of degradation. I had sunk by my own act, for the time, to a lower level bf intelligence than that on which it had been my privilege to stand; and although the state could not have been very favorable for forming a resolutiori, I in that hour determined that I should_^ever .again sacrifice iriy capacity of intellectual enjoyment to a drinking usage; and with God's help, I was enabled to hold by the determination."

A NEW VOLUME. The present number of our paper is the first of a new volume. Four years of the history of the American Presbyterian have transpired, and we enter upon the fifth. Daring this period we have passed through eventful scenes both in our church and in the world. The co-Inmns of our paper have been freighted with important chronicles. Oar duty as journalists has not seldom been a serious and trying one. We have had our part to perform, and our responsibilities to discharge in a period of secession which has divided us from personal friends land esteemed _brethren. "While we loved them, adherence * to principle has compelled ustocondemn and repudiate their coarse. And we trust that we have somewhat assisted in staying the tide of defection, and in maintaining the in tegrity of the _ebureh, so dear to us, in this section of the country. This was almost the first work we were called to perform. It was done to the best of our ability; how well and how wisely, we believe,...

As the. details of- -this anniversary-.have been given in various forms to the public, let me recotd, from my recollections, simply the spirit of the occasion. Wednesday morning was severely warm, but by 9 o'clock, A. M., Alumni _HaH * was«rowded with the son _' s of old Yale, the warmth within, though of a more invigorating character, corresponding with the temperature without.

The class of 1810 was present, in strength; not indeed of numbers , buiof character and expressed thought. With what interest .we listened to every word...

IDEEQE'S TABLE. . _Periodicals and Pamphlets. THE DEATH THREATENED TO ADAM, with its bearings on the annihilation of the wicked. By J. Newton Brown, D. D. Philadelphia, Smith, English & Co. 16mo. 29 pp. This is a seasonable and very able .discussion of a question which of late has acquired great importance. We would wish for the more extensive usefulness of the missive that it had been couched in a less formal, and more popular style; otherwise little is left to be wished for, in the thoroughness and ability with which this part of the subject is handled. The American Tract Society's Almanac. Boston, 1861. This is a creditable production_, differing but little from the similar work of the New York Society; one or two articles on Slavery and a hideous picture of the crowded deck of a slave-ship being the new features. At least we find the Boston statement of our benevolent operations a facsimile, in error and defect, of the New York exhibit. If our members feel any inte...

THE UTICA ORPHAN ASYLUM. \ _PROCESSOR UPSON'S ADDRESS. We have beeifc deeply interested in the perusal of this address, which, in very neat form, has been placed upon our table. The occasion which calledd it forth was the laying of the corner-stone of the new structure for the _TJtiea Asylum, May 30th, 1860. Professor TTpson, who holds the chair of Rhetoric in Hamilton _Collegers not led astray, as one in his literary position might naturally be, into the generalities of fine writing or lofty declamation, but consents to perform the less distinguished part of _" " Old Mortality," in reviving the memories especially of the excellent women who'were connected with the origin of the institution; and for the tenderness and affectionate diligence he has shown in the work, he deserved the best thanks of his hearers.

MB.

The greater- number were either in the British Consulate or _inu Abd-el-Kader's house. At the latter place there are said to be several hundreds of persons , who were with great difficulty obtaining the means of subsistence , to such _^a degree, indeed, as to be u _naerimffiinent risk of actual starvation.

THE _AMERICAN PRESBYTERIAH ALMANAC FOB 1861. This annual increases in value from year to year. It presents, in a portable and compendious form, sufficient information upon the condition and various operations of our church, to make it an important auxiliary in training the people to intelligent co-operation and sympathy as members of the same body. Besides, there are valuable ecclesiastical statistics of other bodies and countries. [Renderin g good for evil, it presents a juster view of the American Tract Society, than their almanac does of us. Among the cuts are two of our churches, the First of Owego and the First oft Syraeuse, in which the Assembly of 1861 is to meet. We are glad also to see a place given to Tabor Chapel, one of the most successsful city mission enterprises in out own or any church at the present time. We have po doubt of the success of the almanac. Sessions should purchase it in quantities and distribute it among the people. For fifty copies or more, ti»e ...
