THE SOUTH WESTEEN CHURCH. In our last issue we gave the early history of this enterprise, including the circumstances under which a change of relation from the Old School Presbytery to the Third Presbytery of Philadelphia was accomplished. As the spontaneous and unanimous movement of an interesting people with their esteemed pastor, it deserves a cordial welcome, and will receive it. Upon the invitation of the pastor, we had the _^pleasure of worshipping with them and of assisting in the administration of the Lord's Supper on last Sabbath, and we own we were most favorably impressed with the whole appearance of things, and notwithstanding several peculiarities in the worship, such as belong to the Scotch-Irish congregations, we felt perfectly at home, and enjoyed the delightful flow of Christian communion. None need hesitate to sing the old version of the Psalms with a people who do not insist upon it as an essential condition of Christian fellowship. None need be startled a...

FOBESIGHT OF THE "OLD" _AKD "NEW ' SCHOOL. If our " Old School" brethren could complacently look on while our recent Assemblies were engaged in the promotion of our denominational interests, and, in the comparison, could congratulate themselves upon the foresight which led their Assembly, a quarter of a century before, to similar measures, the increasing, divisions of sentiment now prevailing in their own body on questions ,of doctrine and church polity, indicate that we are holding ground far in advance of their own, as to the toleration of a reasonable diversity of views in the same branch of the Presbyterian Church. Such a diversity is springing up, or, more correctly, perhaps, is coming to light, among themselves, as is utterly incompatible with that uniformity with which they have plumed themselves, and for the sake of obtaining which, among other reasons, the Church was divided twenty-five years ago. We have always held the ground that such uniformity is unnecessary, and...

_OBEAT _SiEWS _lEOJff ITALY. We have great news from Italy. Naples has received the liberator of Italy, the Washington of Europe, with open arms. The tyrant king has been allowed to flee, a fate quite too good for him, and Victor _Emsnuei is proclaimed king of Italy. It is a wonderful omen, too, that on the ruins of the crumbling government of the man of sin, the banner of King _JEmmamiel is being raised. < We accept this as a figure of that which is to come. Meanwhile Christians should labor and pray for a new development of, enterprise and hopeful energy and Hberality to ;ifteet this unwonted enlargement of their field of activity. The Christians of Italy need our sympathy and our prayers now quite as much as in times of trial and persecution.

FOREIGN Presbyterianism in England,—-The Glasgow Guardian says: ; " The handsome church lately built in Exeter for Rev. J. Gladstone, whose evangelical principles led to a rupture between him and.the TBactarian Bishop, is likely to come into the hands of tho Presbytery of London. We are informed that _negotiations have been opened for this end, and that several of the ministers of the Presbytery have lately officiated there, who are to be succeeded by others, till the congregation, which is neither small nor unirifluential , shall have an opportunity of ohoosing a pastor in connection with the Presbyterian Church. The edifice has been constructed for Church of Englarid worship, and has both altar and organ, but these are to be removed. Its architecture is very elegant, and the position which it holds is commanding. _. Presbyterianism has not made so noble an acquisition in-England for several years, though its progress is _s_%ill onward and upward." An Iron Church.—The pisho...

His ministry has not only resulted in many additions to the membership, but has endeared his people most tenderly and warmly to him, and his influence for good extends over the entire city. It will do Presbyterians from abroad good when spending a Sabbrvth in Baltimore to visit this church at the corner of Green and German street, and engage in its stated services. Bey. Witt. _U.

METHODIST Limits of the iPastoral Term.'—The 'Nashville Advocate'says: -' _ir_^ft_^_cTiir_^_iii_^^ of -out pastoral inefficiency is to be found in tHe shortness of the pastoral term, we should advocate a lengthening of,itbe- term. No amount of traditional _prejudice would deter us from such advocacy. Once the preachers charigVcl every six months. Afterwards, they might stay a whole year in a single charge. Two ,years is the outside limit of the pastoral term among us how. . There is no scriptural law on the subject, and if _clrctfmaljances have so changed that three years would suit better than two, we should feel bound to favor an extension to three years. The promotion of the gospel, the edification of the Church, is _, the end sought. We dare not hold any means above such an •end.- The British Wesleyans, whose praise-is in all the . world, for, diligent, close watching, soul-serving pastors, have three years.

GENERAL. K_6V» ue _' ofg_€WWtn! _r_^^s _TSfm_^gmiia_^m<imt France, is in this country with the view of stirring up the interest of American Christians in this most important and useful institution. This Society, as tbe freest and boldest in its movements, has to bear the special distrust "and opposition of the Romanists of France. Its churches , formerly closed, have been opened by imperial sanction, but its schools remain closed as they were in 1852. To make amends for this deficiency they now send teachers from house to houoe. The Protestants are obliged to pay for the support of the Romish schools, but not one of them has ever been induced to use them for his children. Mr. Fiseh says: The local authorities hoped recently to crush even tliis hard work of teaching from ifamily to family. They maintained that it was school-keeping in the eye of tbe law; and the "Court of Firstf Instance," and.the Court of Appeal at Limoges decided against us , but the *'Court of* Cassatio...
