For the Presbyterian Banner and Advocate Board of Publication. Mb. Editor :—Allow me to group together a few facts, gleaned from a somewhat careful examination of the last Annual Report of this most excellent agency of our Church, and to suggest some points on which these reports ought to be more explicit. The' Board is to be viewed in two aspects: " the one a bookselling and publishing concern, managed on strictly commercial principles; the other a charitable and missionary enterprise , conducted on benevolent principles." My remarks will be arranged under the divisions here indicated. Viewed m a business light, the results of the year's operations are as follows: The aggregate of sales by colporteurs, branch depositories, and central store, was 297,506 volumes, valued at $63,610.30.* The Report gives no information as to the amount of stock on -hand. When we take into account that the Board has a cash.capital, contributed by the churches, as' given in their reports from 1841 t...

Ecclesiastical Cprrespbriderice. \f_^ The Correspondence which, for many years, happily subsisted between the Congregationa!'ehprehes ? and our _jpwnyjis likelyjto terminate. A number of the District Associations have so advised. A similar inclination has been manifested in some of our Presbyteries. A portion of the weekly press, in each denomination, inclines in the same direction. It is probable that most of the General Associations will regard a continuance of the intercourse with disfavor. And it is by no means likely that the General Assembly will, in the slightest degree, urge the matter against the unwilling. And the New School General Assembly occupies very nearly a similar position with our own, relative to the Associations. Hence it is likely that the wonted Ecclesiastical courtesy, between Congregationalists and Presbyterians, is about to terminate j so far, at least, as the Church Councils are concerned. We greatly regret that there should be a necessity for this dis...

We are pleased with this evidence that the result of the effort;thus far, is highly encouraging to the friends of the enterprise, arid that it affords suck promise to become, by God's blessing, an instrumentality of the greatest good to the African race, both here and in the land of their fathers. Early in the year, there were circulars and other documents, relative to the Institution; sent to the different Presbyteries; from many of which, in all sections of the Church, responses have been received, expressing not merely a general,approbation of the enterprise, but a confidence in its man agement, and a lively mterest t in its success. It can hardly do otherwise than prosper. It stands aloof from all controversy respecting the political and social position of the colored population of the country] while it occupies the ground of Christian benevolence, affording, in an unobtrusive manner, the opportunity to God's people to improve the moral and religious condition of a race, for...

Baird's Digest.* We wish that this important work were widely circulated in every part of the Church, and that the Board of Publication would adopt effective means to secure this end. We are persuaded that there are many Presbyteries in which a copy of it is not to be found, and yet it is of such a nature that every minister and elder in our Church should be supplied with it. All ihe Acts and Deliverances of the old Synod and of the General Assembly are here systematically arranged, and can be easily re ferred to. Mr. Baird has shown an equal amount of judgment and zeal in the compilation of this large volume; and when we turn over its pages, we feel satisfied that the thanks of the Church are eminently due to the compiler, for the years of patient toil and drudgery, as well as discrimination, which were devoted to its preparation. We could wish to see the work offered at a lower price, but we dare say that $3.50, or $2.82 for ministers, will not be thought extravagant for a v...

The Person of Jesus Christ. We reprint, by request, a description of the person of our Lord , when he had his tabernacle in the flesh, walking among men and doing good. ¦ We do not vouch for the authenticity of the document, nor _* the accuracy of the portrait ; nor do we wish either to awake or to gratify desires after knowledge of this kind. It is the moral likeness of Jesus in which we are interested. In his life and spirit let us study him, and strive after a full conformity. The description is as follows : Epistle written byt PubliussLentulus , to the Roman Senate, in the time of our Saviour. Conscript Fathers.—There hath appeared in these our days , a man of great virtue, named Jesus Christ, who is yet living among, us, and of the Gentiles_, is accepted as a prophet of truth: but his own disciples call him the Son of God. . He raiseth the dead and cureth all manner of, diseases—a man of stature somewhat tall and comely; with a very reverend countenance , such.as the behold...

The Ashmnn Institute. On the 31st of December last, as we noted on the occasion, pretty fully, the Ashmun Institute was dedicated to the purposes of its erection, and the Rev. J. P. Carter, A. M., of Maryland, was installed President, and Professor of Theology. The Addresses delivered on the occasion were of a highly interesting character, setting forth the necessity for such an Institution, its objects, arid the principles upon which it is to be conducted. > The Institute, as our readers are aware, is located at Oxford, .Pa., and is under the care of the Presbytery of Newcastle. It has the recommendation of the General Assembly. The location is highly favorable. It was opened on the 1st of January, 1857, and the exercises were continued until the close of the regular Session; when a public examination was held of the Theological Class, which reflected, as we are abundantly informed, the highest credit upon the dili gence of the students, and upon the careful and judici...

McKendreeReill_}, °fthe Methodist Church j and the children wuJPe addressed by the Rev. Dr. Plumer, of the Presbyterian Church. This institution has been, from the beginning, well and economically managed, and .been productive of great good to many helpless orphans, whose physical, intellectual, and moral welfare have been carefully sought. It has, from the beginning, been supported by the voluntary contributions of Christian and benevolent people, to which it is well entitled. Owing to some legacies left the institution, some time ago, it is supposed by many that it is now able to take care of itself. But, unfortunately, these legacies are not available at present, and some of them probably never will be. Therefore, this Asylum will still continue to have a strong claim on the humane and benevolent.

Sabbath Schools of the Presbyterian Churches in Pittsburgh. ; These Schools met together in the First PresByterian church, on the afternoon of last Sabbath. The spacious edifice was entirely filled by children, teachers, parents, and interested spectators. The exercises were introduced by the reading of a hymn by the Rev. Samuel Fulton; after the singing of which, prayer was offered by the Rev. J. P. Carter, President of Ashmun Institute. The children were then addressed by the Rev. John Leighton Wilson, D. D., one of the Secretaries of our Board of Foreign Missions, and for nearly twenty years a missionary to Africa. He was followed in a short address by the Rev. Dr. Howard. The whole services were concluded with prayer by Rev. Mr.rFindley, of the Sixth/Presby terian _churchy and the Apostolic benediction by Dr. Wilson. All the services were appropriate, and a very happy impression was produced on the minds of all present.

from the correspondence; and hence the indications of non-intercourse, to which we have alluded. If they ¦ claim it as their right to reiterate without limit, their admonitions, censures and rebukes, they must be resisted. Such a right never is granted in social intercourse. Equals must regard each other as possessed of good sense and good feeling, and as capable of-managing their own business. On such principles, visits may be interchanged to mutual edification and enjoyment; but if these fundamentals are not accorded, intercourse must produce painful dissensions; and, in such cases, to keep the peace, it becomes needful to kee p apart. We trust that our own Assembly will not be in haste to rupture fraternal bonds; and also that it will do nothing beneath its proper dignity, nor unbecoming that Christian courtesy "by which it has ever been characterized.
