_YOTTNG WOMEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION irar _LONDON. If great cities harbor great evils and furnish innumerable and great incentives to sin, they are also places where the minds and hearts of the good are most active in devising remedies, and most liberal in carrying them out. It would be interesting and in a high degree instructive to bring together in one view , the various agencies lately set in operation by the Christian people of London, for the rescue of the degraded and vicious, and for the protection of such as are in the way of temptation in that vast metropolis. We content ourselves at present with an extract from the London correspondence of the Sunday School Times , in which a single One of these agencies, and one perhaps least known in this country is described. The suggestion of the writer in reference to the formation of similar institutions in this country is worth y of notice. The recent _movement in New York City, having in view the establishment of a Ladies' ...

And I desire to. say to such, that the time has again arrived when it is safe to come to this state , (Iowa.) The wave of speculation iu lands has passed away. Those who arrested the natural course ' of emigration by getting possession of the public domains, have fuund themselves compelled to_^ccep possession, while the taxes have been to them a constant moth , until many would be glad to dispose of them at almost any price. And more or less of these lands are from time to time exchanging hands, at even lessthan Government price, (§1,25 per acre.) And I am informed that land can be bought within five miles of this place for $3'per acre, and within 20 miles , gopd prairie land can be bousrht for less still. And will you permit me to call the attention ot your "readers, once more, to this region in which I live. Iow...

THE WESTMINSTER EEVIEWS IGNORANCE OF _SCRIPTURE. ' The Cumberland Presbyterian , of Waynesburg in this State, gives the following aa one of the results of an examination of the late review of Rawlinson's Bampton Le'ctures iu the Westminster. The Westminster Review for July, in an article on Rawlinson's Bampton Lectures for 1859 , has not failed to follow in the well beaten track of those who. have gone before in resorting to misstatements of the Bible record. The writer says: "Passing from Gentile to Biblical evidence , we find the stereotyped assertion of divines, that the books of Joshua and Judges suppose the Pentateuch as their antecedent. But it is not explained how Joshua could have engraved the five books on a pillar on Mount Ebal." Now the reader need not be surprised when we tell him, that ifc is nowhere said that Joshua ever _engraved the five books on a pillar on Mount _JKbal. bee Joshua vui. 60~o2. " Then, Joshua built an altar unto the Lord God of Israel in Moun...

EDITOR'S TABLE. ITALY IN TRANSITION. Public Scenes and Private Opinions in the Spring of 1860. Illustrated by Official Documents from the Papal Archives of the Revolted _Legations.

Philada.: for Sale by Lindsay & Blakiston. <12mo.. pp. 429, with an Indcx-This volume, by a devotedly pious and wellknown English Wesleyan, is designed to aid in creating or in stimulating, wherever it exists, that public sentiment all over the civilized world, in favor of a liberated Italy. It is based upon evidence furnished by Papal documents which had been preserved in the archives of the Romagna, and which escaped the vigilance of the Papal commissioners charged with their destruction. In Ferfara alone, a secretary had spent three days in burning papers. Those which remained like the books of the Sybil have a much greater value to the friends of liberty in their c...

month MY VACATION, 1860. Dear Presbyterian :—A year ago, the of respite which August gives me, was used for an excursion to the Lake Superior region, where I enjoyed a fresh and pleasant experience. But one does not wish to go to the same places while he can go to new ones which promise well; and this year I resolved to see the region of the Wisconsin river. I was determined in this direction by a piscatorial friend, now of Indianapolis, who had once visited the ground, and whose researches in the brook were rewarded with abundance of the " speckled denizens." My hope was to be alike fortunate in the same direction. THE COUNTRY THERE. Starting from the Rock river region, it is no matter how I came there; thus starting by railroad—the Racine and Mississippi—we strike the North-Westcrn at Clinton, thence to Milton Junction, where we got the Milwaukee and Mississippi, tying together, as you know, dear reader, the Lake Michigan at Milwaukee, and the "Father of Waters," at Prairi...

BAPTISM AHD _COMMTtJKIOIT. \ We stated recently in reply to the claim of our Baptist brethren, that they are not sectarian in close communion, because we require baptism as a prerequisite to communion—that the whole thing is a misstatement. We do not require baptism as a prerequisite to communion. We give an invitation to all Christians, requiring only good standing in an evangelical church, and this only as evidential, in the judgment of charity, of piety. The responsibility as to the manner in which they become church members is thrown entirely upon their own church authorities. We do not undertake at al|io jn_^_gejjf it. ' , . ; . .

our chubch.aitd..ott:b. _sybtod ANOTHER DIP INTO THE STATISTICS. In the minutes for 1857 the total of our Church membership was reported as 139,115. As a considerable portion of the Southern membership had actually determined on the course they afterwards took, and were virtually no longer a portion of the Church, when these minutes were published, the real numerical strength of the Church at that time would more clearly appear by deducting those Synods and Presbyteries from the amount above named. The seceding bodies were: The Synod of Kentucky, numbering 1028 " • "Tennessee, " 5286 « " W. Tennessee, " 2209 « " Mississippi, " 1151 Two Presbyteries of the S. of Virginia , numbering, 2677 Two Presbyteries of the S. of Missouri, numbering 1087 13,438 To this total should be added about six hundred members lost from those Presbyteries, in the Synod's ofVirgiuia, Missouri and Pennsylvania, which still remain in our connexion.
