During the past year a noble ship has been built, for the use of the American Colonization Society, at a cost of about §42 ,-000, toward which Mr. John Stevens, of Talbot Co., Maryland, gave 136,000.

Tomorrow, the 15th inst., the Stevens starts again on her errand of mercy. About five hundred applications have been made for passage, but only three hundred can be accommodated.

Tbe Catholic Almanac for 1857.* This is a most suggestive volume. Few of our readers are likely to see it, and very few even of our clerical brethren are likely to make themselves familiar with its . pages, which are replete with information of great moment to all the leading minds of our Church. Our past history shows that we are not prone to keep up a No Popery cry, and to foster feelings of strife and hatred toward either the priesthood or the members of the Church of Borne in this country. Our protest against the apos tacy of that Church is, nevertheless, quite as earnest and sincere, and we are inclined to believe it is more intelligently based than 'the outcry of many political tricksters and noisy declaimers, who trade on the partizanship of their followers. Our business, however, at present, is with the Almanac and Directory, lying before us. During the late war in the Crimea, if, amid the invention of death-dealing instruments of long range and desolating energies, whic...

The union of some three hundred ministers and elders, the representatives of the Presbyteries from North and Sooth, East and West, in fraternal harmony, is an occasion of rejoicing for every friend of Zion, and every lover of his country. May the boundaries of our Church never grow less, and the Dumber of her members never be diminished. May she ever be omb throughout the whole length and breadth of the land—one body, one in faith, and one in effort; and may the country where she has her happy home, long enjoy God's richest blessings. Lexington is one of the noted cities of the State, containing about eight _thousand inhabitants, and situated in the midst of a very extensive, highly fertile, and well cultivated district.

General Synod of the Asiociate Eeformed Presbyterian Church. This body assembled in the city of New York, on Wednesday, the 20th inst. The opening sermon was preached by the Bev. Mr. Findley, from Eph. v: 25--27. The Bev. David B. Kerr, editor of the Preacher and United Presbyterian _^ of this city, was elected Moderator. The three subjects of most interest, in the proceedings of this body, will be the revision or improvement of the Psalmody in use , union with the Associate Church, and the establishment of a denominational College. Thus far the prospect of union on the basis proposed, does not seem encouraging. According to the report of the Committee on the decisions of the Presbyteries with respect to this subject, the votes in favor of union on the proposed basis were 154, and opposed to union on such basis, 94. Eight Presbyteries had not reported the strength of their vote; but six of them opposed the basis, and two supported it. Dr. M'Carroll, of Newburg, N. Y., expresse...
