JFor the Presbyterian Banner. Presbytery of Sangamon and Last General Assembly. In your paper of December 7th, which came to hand a few days since, I find the Presbytery of Sangamon stands at the head of your editorial column in no enviable light; and in another number, you make a fling at it which, in your better , judgment, it is trusted you will see it does not merit. Surely in this day of strife , when States by terrible acts stand in battle, array against each other, to place in antagonism to the General Assembly, and to hold there a church, or Presbytery, or minister , or any individual, without necessity, by mere inference , ought to be religiously guarded against among friends, and is_,to be expected. It is not doubted that your sense of brotherly propriety will give place in one of your columns to the following: Both the Commissioners of Sangamon Presbytery to the last General Assembl y, voted for what has been called the Spring Resolutions. After hearing our report.o...

MRS. LINCOLN'S BALL This is a strange heading for an article in a religious newspaper. But people delight in variety. Even good men, love to have something new. And what about Mrs. Lincoln's ball ? Why, there was a great deal said about it; that is, about the ball that was to be, and about it as though it had been. Letter writers at Washington, and telegraphers, and busjbodies, elsewhere, were for days exercised on the subject. The invited, and the rejected, and the neglected were named ; also the splendid preparations, &c, &c. And then the censures too—what! a ball in the White House J m these days of calamity, when the elite of even New-York, have had scarcely any thing of the kind since the war began! - Thus the sensation went; and the censures also. And we ourselves did not escape reproaches. One who claims to be a constant reader of the Banner , and who, as_{.we would wish charitably to think, looks "to us to guard the virtue of the people, so that it ma...

- - , . ¥oK_*the- Presbyterian Banner. In Memoriam, John C. Schriver , a graduate of Jefferson College ,. and member of the Senior Class of the Western- Theological Seminary, died in Pittsburjjh, on ' the 31st of January. As a token of their high regard for the deceased, the students of the Seminary, have adopted the following tribute of respect: Whereas , it has pleased Almighty God to remove from our midst an esteemed brother, John C. Schriver , just at the time when he was read y to enter upon the active work of the ministry, just when he was girding himself to go forth to proclaim to his dying fellow-men the glad news of the Gospel ; ' ' Resolved , That we recognize in this dispensation , which has brought sadness to our hearts , the hand of a kind Father who doeth all things well. We feel that for aim to die was gain.

REJOICINGS The expressions of joy at the success of our arms at Fort _Donelson show a great depth of feeling on the part of the people, in their country's welfare. We cannot pretend to enumerate the places where the tidings were hailed wifch delight. In our own city the ringing of bells and the display .of flags were the first resort. This was follow ad. by a public' meeting for arrangements for a formal demonstration. All this, as we take it, is not for gladness that an enemy has been made ta suffer. It is ,because victory is the preliminary of peace. A foe has _raised his rebellious hand, and he must be subdued. Secession has taken the sword , and it must perish by the sword. The use ,,of this weapon is Divinely ordained,. a__n. d. nothing but its use can establish law and make tranquility secure. We then rejoice not: in the terrible instrument which the magistrate is bound to. bear, but in the end, thereby accomplished. v The manner of the demonstration will, of course,...

GOOD MEWS IR0M THE ARMY A friend has handed us a letter from a gentleman whose home is near Pittsburgh, but who is now in the army of the Potomac. We present an extract, which must give great joy to Christians. • What encouragement to furnish Chaplains and to pray for the soldi&sl The letter is dated Camp Johnston, Feb. 9, 1862. The writer says: " This is a delightful day in every respect. God, with the gracious influence of his Divine Spirit, is certainly in our midst. There hasi been for the last week or ten days a-surprising and delightful revival of religion in our regiment—surprising, because to the faithless, such as I, it was so unexpected; delightful, because the Spirit is in our midst, Christ glorified, and, I trust, many souls born into the kingdom of heaven. Two weeks ago, Dr. Maeks gave notice that he would administer the Sacra' ment of the _^ Lord's Supper, on two weeks v from that day, to«all in the regiment who ' had evangelical church connexion , and ...

Commodore Foete, and Public Worship.— Hag Officer Foote, whose name is now so _promin ently before his countrymen, is rep-•_resented as a Christian, firm and exemplary. His xeligioa is manifest at home, and it shines1 also abroad. We find the following on the authority of a correspondent of a St. Louis-paper, writing from Paducah:. " Com. Foote, with his men, went to church. The preacher did not appear. The Commodore requested an elder to officiate. He refused! The Commodore then occupied the piilpit and preached from the text: ' Let not your hearts be troubled; ye believe in (3-od , believe also in me,' T_,he _ehurch was crowded, and the congregation was delighted. Th<B Commodore is an earnest Christian, ats well as an able commander. _J "On coming downfrom the pulpit,tJie -Commodore reprimanded the minister , who had arrived during the sermon, for not being more punctual." < 'We do not doubt the jpa_^artruth of the statement; but we . cannot believe that an hum...

. The New Virginia Convention on Slavery.— The Convention now endeavoring to construct a Constitution to be submitted to the people of Western Virginia, to be by them made a part of their fundamental law , and to be sent to Congress with a " request for admission into the Union, has adopted the following article: " No slave , or free person of color shall come within this State for peTmament residence after this Constitution goes into operation." Such an article will likely prove fatal to the whole scheme. It perpetuates Slavery as it is. We think that Congress will never agree to divide a State in such a way as to make of it two slave States. We would not deprive either individuals or _Spates of their rights under the Constitution; but we would give no new power to slavery, and no» extension of power; and where slaveholders have broken the bond by which they hold their fellowmen, we' would, neither directly nor indirectly, help them to its renewal. Let it remain severed forever...

/ HumanB.—A short time ago, our Govern ment dispatched ex-Gov. Fish and Bishop Ames oh a mission to the Confederates to attend to the wants of our prisoners. They addressed the authorities at Richmond, but were refused all access. There was, however, transmitted to them, for our Government, a proposition to exchange a_)I prisoners, ,and, as they had three hundred more of ours than we had of theirs , they would release these on parole of honor not to serve against them, till regularly exchanged. The proposition was accepted , and thereby many brave men will be relieved from confinement and hardships. This proposition preceded our capture of the two thousand at Roanoke. That success will enable us to release our three hundred men from parole, and'still have many left. It has been suggested that we should return tneir generosity ' more than five-fald, and send back all these, on similar conditions. Kindness to a fallen foe is noble , and it is wise also when duly limited.

1 Noble Sentiment—We 'are pleased to notice the evidences of National virtue's .ascendency to seats of power. The straight forward honesty and whole consecration of the President, to his country's good, are admitted and appreciated_^ And to his irreproachable character, _Ithus far, we add that of Secretary Stanton. On a recent occasion the Secretary said : ; , "I can make no,more appointments from political influence or personal appeals. The appointments, m the army must come from the ranks. I have the cases of a number of widows, who have lost their husbands in the army, to attend to, and, as they are most needy, and their wants pressing, they ' will receive my earliest attention. As for the few civil posts in my gift, I shall distribute them among the poor1 and meritorious soldiers who have been crippled in defence of their country's rights." A Christian public should heartily sustain true worth in high places.

MaHiage.^—We invite attention to an'article on ibis subject, on our first page. Marriage was the first social institution _^ 'God gave it to man in Eden. It was ordained for man's bliss_; and he is stHi blessed in its due observance. Every people should by all the force of public sentiment, and by all the majesty of law, protect its rights 4b all, in all their Scriptural fullness. The poor should be protected,in these rights, amply; and the rich should be confined by the wise, pure, and strong bonds. One of the greatest objections to the American system of Slavery is its destruction of the family system, as ordained of God;; :: ' ' = ..¦;- ' _% : .¦ • ¦¦ ¦ ¦ ¦ _ ¦¦ ¦'¦ ¦ : ' " ¦ •;¦ ¦ But among freemen as well as slaves, among whites and blacks, at. the .North, and South, family duties are greatly neglected Head the article to which we refer.

Rev. J. B. Bipley.—Tms excellent minister, as we learn from the Presbyterian, died at Philadelphia on the 7th inst., in the 38th year of his age. We knew him well, as Chaplain of the Mariner's Church, where it was our own privilege often to officiate. He was sincerely devoted to the spiritual welfare o ' _i the sailors, and well adapted to the work of the pastorate, with them and their.families. Mr. Ripley was the third pastor of that church. Its first was Father Eastburn, who had founded it, and who left it a legacy. Rev. O. Douglass was the second pastor. Mr. Ripley died under the cheering influence of a _strong faith and a lively hope.

The Situation. Within the last two weeks the circumstances of the country, in regard to the rebellion, have' improved vastly. The prospects are now bright for a speedy restoration of peace; not so speedy, however, huh that we may have yet months of coniliet, with great expenditures of Money and loss of life. But it seems as though the rebellion had culminated. It has passed Ihe acme of its power. It now is suffering defeat after defeat. And it is thus suffering at a most critical period. The Confederate enlistments were for a year, and that year, as to some of their regiments, _oxpires with the present month j and as to most of them, it will expire with March, April, and May. Keenlistments, under the reverses which the rebel armies are now oxperieneing, are likely to be slowj and if drafting shall be their resort, the cause will become hateful , and the soldiers be easily beaten. It is now becoming manifest that we have had a General at the head of our firmies—a man of mind—a ...
