~ Resolutions of Church Courts. A stranger to Ecclesiastical Courts would suppose, from the degree of earnestness often manifested in favor of or against resolutions proposed for adoption, that the simple passage of the resolutions was the great difficulty, and that after this was done, the object proposed would be accomplished as a matter of course. But unfortunately there is a wide difference between the passage of a resolution and the accomplishment of its purposes. Indeed, not unfrequently the resolutions of Sessions, Presbyteries, Synods, and General Assemblies, are nothing more than so much waste paper, and the labor bestowed on them is lost. This ought not to be so. To adopt a resolution in a Court of Jesus Christ is a solemn thing; and it ought not!to be adopted, unless there is a determination to carry it out. To neglect it is to trifle with a sacred obligation we have assumed, and to weaken the moralforce of Ecclesiastical acts, as well as to omit the performance of ...

fta J eprtmtnt. Election News. Pennsylvania. — The election on Tuesday seems to have gone strongly Democratic. The returns received are far from being perfect, but they indicate very mainifestly, that Buchanan is to have a very strong vote in the State. We give a few of the figures received, indicating majorities: Republican and American.— Pittsburgh, 700; Allegheny, ; (whole county of Allegheny, 4,000;) Delaware, 600; Union, 600: Lancaster, 3,000.

The steamer Niagara brings European news to the 27th of .September. . ...... . There are still, some rumorj of wars in prospect, but nothing to produce any great alarm. The demands of England and; France, on Naples, for an internal reform in her government, are not very definitely kaown. The; right of interference is also doubted by many. Still, it seems to be a thing decided on. Each of those governments is sending eight war vessels, which are to see to the interests of their^respective people and governments, in case^of a diplomatic rupture ; and that rupture is ordered, provided the demands made are declined.,.. Sardinia also takes part in the affair, and Austria has been notified of the course determined on. To sympathize with the oppressed is a duty, but an interference, by oreigners, with the internal affairs of a country, is of doubtful propriety. The case which will justify it, must be peculiar. : The appointments to tb^ Sees of London and Durham show a leaning on the part...
