111MHESS Of RELIGIOUS PRINCIPLE Frank Edwards, a young married man, employed in an English, manufactory, was converted. His oor _iversion was deep and genuine j it reached both heart and life. The change was complete, and from being notoriously trifling and thoughtless, he became a proverb for cheerful gravity and serious deportment. Very delightful was the first experience,of that young man. A good workman, he enjoyed constant employment, with wages sufficient to procure the oomforts of lite. He had a thrifty wife, who was led to Jesus by his own influence. Their cottage was the house of prayer. [Religion, plenty, health, and contentment dwelt with them; probably _^ there was not another home in England more pleasant than that uf the young:, pious mechanic But piety is not an effectual shield to defend from trouble. It pupports, gloriously supports, the sufferer; but his path to heaven is appointed to lead through " much tribulation." It was thus with Frank Edwards and his ...

BEQEADED C0SDITI0H OF THE BUSHMEH. On the flanks and in tlie vajieys or tne onowbevg or Snowy mountains, which form the Northern_^oundary of the Cape, humanity is found in the very lowest state of degradation in which it has ever been exhibited. The Bosjesmans or Bushmen, twre or three specimens of which race were brought to this country a few years ago, present an exaggeration even of the hideous form whieh characterizes the Hottentot. Hunger and cold, and nakedness, and every description pf privation and distress, have so dwarfed their, forms and depraved their minds, that they_^present a spectacle painful to look upon. The stature of _thbse pigmy inhabitants of the desert rarely excceds_^four feet, or four feet two inches. Thieves by prpfessiori, cruel and, "treacherous , without a fixed habitation, without society, without any sort of common interest or goverhment, and living only from day to day, and from hand to mouth; they were objects of loathing to neighboring tribes ...

ONE TLUmi&D _tEAES AGO. One hundred years agO j there was tfo_$«'a'stogie white man in Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, and Illinois territories. Then, what is now the most flourishing part of America, was - as little known as the country around the Mountains of the Moon. It was not until 1799; that the " Hunter of Kentuck," the gallant and adventurous Boone, left his home in, North Carolina, to become the first settler of Kentucky. The first pioneer of Ohio did not settle until twenty years after this time. A hundred years ago Canada belonged to France, and the whole population of the United States did not exceed a million and a half of people. A hundred years ago, the great Frederick of Prussia was _performing those exploits which have made him immortal in military annals, and with his little monarchy was sustaining a single-handed contest with Russia, Austria and France—the three great powerspf Europe combined.. A hundred years ago,, Napoleon was not born, and-Washington wa...

Major Roebfick, informed of this, went- out to a spo_^ where an excavation had been made, displaying this singular phenomenon., In digging somewhat deeper for the ; purpose,of further research, they laid open a _vault, which on examinatipu proved to be of some size, and to their astonishment, they found a kind of printing press, set up in the vault, and on it movable types, placed ssit ready for printing.
