Geo. Van Peurs. This was a paper of great interest, written in an excellent spirit, and must have cheered the hearts of all present who love to hear of such labors. It was very evident, that, while their missionary placed soiow an estimate upon his own exertions, they had yet been most faithful and untiring. .In his report, some striking cases of conversion were detailed, and several instances were cited of signal encouragement _;to faithful Christian effort.

A QUICK-WITTED SCOTCH W0_MAIT. We read once, a good story of a Catholic boy, who questioned the priest about the order of confession, and learning that the highest prelates in the chureli confessed their sins directly to God, concluded that he would confess to God also. The following story shows the folly of prayer to the Virgin Mary, when one has the privilege of prayer to God himself, with humble faith : 4 Before the_=reformation in Scotland, a good old gentlewomanjWhb had «cen better days, was reduced to the necessity of taking a small moorland farm under the Earl of Huntley, ancestor of the Duke of Gordon. On this barren spot, the poor widow and her two sons, 1)y their unwearied industry, contrived to glean a scanty subsistence. But, miserable as this dependence was, they were likely soon to be deprived, of it by the practices of a greedy, ruthless land-steward, or factor, as he is denominated in Scotland. This unfeeling scoundrel strained every nerve to dispossess the widow a...

WE PASS FOE WHAT WE AEE. A man passes for what he is worth. Very idle is all curiosity concerning other people's estimate of us, and all fear of remaining unknown is not less so. If a man knows that he can do any thing —4hat he can do it better than any one else-—he has a pledge of acknowledgment of that fact by all persons. The world is full of judgment days, and into every assemblage that a man enters, in every action that he attempts, he is gauged and stamped. In every troop of boys that whoop and run in each yard and square, a new comer is Well and accurately weighed in the course of a few days, and stamped with his right number, as if he had undergone a formal trial of his strength, speed, and temper.

THE FALL OF PUBLIC MEN. Nemo repente fait turpissimrs. The perpetuity of religion, the success of plans for human progress, and the preservation of liberty, depend on other things than the character of public men. They are connected with causes deeply seated in human nature, in the hearts of men, and in the purposes of God. They result much more from the prevalence of general virtue in a community, and from the general character of a people, than from any thing which occurs in the _oase of any individual, however eminent may be his station, and however essential he may regard himself, or others may regard him, in promoting the great objects connected with human welfare. The great objects pertaining to relig ion, to human progress, and. to liberty_^ * * are identified _^ith loo many things that are permanent in their nature, to be materially affected by the conduct of the few individuals that may be placed at the head of public affairs, and though they may be temporarily chec...

DS. _WADDmGTOff We have before stated that Dr. Waddington met with opposition and prejudice on his return to London, on account of his supposed complicity with slavery in this country. Dr. Cheever and othersChave no doubt contributed designedly to this impression. England is not in a condition to understand and appreciate the condition of things in this country, and her manifested sympathy with Dr_/ ipheever and Fred. Douglas will not help to her enlightenment. The greatest positive hinderanee to the progress of moderate and practical views on the subject of slavery, both North and Sonth, are these very ultra men who are esteemed abroad as ttie apostles vf liberty. We extract the _foliowttog frbmCB>r.

DEATH OF REV. J. _ADDISON ALEXANDES, D.D. Our country has lost a great scholar, and the Presbyterian Church an able defender in the death of Dr. Alexander. Two months ago the church was startled by his sudden and dangerous illness. After many days of suffering, the anxieties of friends were relieved by his gradual recovery. For the last month it had been his hope to resume, at an early day, his duties in the seminary. On Thursday last, in conversation, he said he felt about as well as he had done for years, and that his weakness was peculiar to him in weather such as we were then having. On Friday morning he was not able to rise at his regular hour. After a little while he felt better, and at noon was able to take a ride. Upon his return to the house he was completely prostrated. In the evening he was much worse, _itfft during the ; night and. Saturday morning knew no one, and at half-past three, P. M., passed away. A few facts in regard to his early application and his succes...
