NEW-YOHK. #_W e~t • ¦% • • ¦ _T • fill. _ large numbers of workmen have been employed in smoothing the ice and preparing it for the use of those who would profane the Sabbath in this way. The tax payers begin to feel that it is rather hard to pay men for making preparations to 1 enable others to transgress the laws of' God, and also of the land. And religious people feel that a great public work is in ' danger of being sadly perverted from its _,true object. Some People in New-York think it strange, and speak about it too , that the Brick Church could not, among the thousands of ministers in our own _.Church, and the many promising young men in our Theological Seminaries, to say nothing of our able corps of Theological Professors, find a suitable colleague without going into a Congregational Theological Seminary to take away a Professor greatly needed in his present position.

EASTERN SUMMARY BOSTON AND NEW-ENGLA ND. President Felton, of Harvard College, has . been for some time dangerously sick, at his brother's, in Chester County, Pa. Hopes of his speedy and permanent recovery are now entertained. The Boston Atheneum has come into possession'' of an interesting treasure. Henry Stevens, the London7 book agent, sent to this country, as a bait—but futile—to the American Antiquarian Society, the original parchment of one of those seven or eight sub-covenants that' were concomitant with the well-known Solemn League and' Covenant, signed at Edinburgh, in 1638. 1 The present parchment is dim with age, written in the ordinary engrossing text, and ' was the one signed at Glasgow, 1638, andv bears the bold signature of Montrose, and some two, hundredt and fifty others, noblemen and 1 commoners.- < It .has been carefullyi and handsomely mounted, and forms' now an interesting addition to the library's catalo ' gue.

REJOICE WITH TREMBLING This is a day of National triumph. God has befriended us. ' He has blessed our arms greatly and repeatedly. To his name be the glory. On us be the shame of having by 6up sins provoked him for a time to hide his face from us; and to suffer jealousies, divisions, and civil war to arise; aod _£he rebellion to, become strong, and prosper, and gain favor abroad. We humbled ourselves. We " acknowl edged God, in the land. We fasted, and confessed our sins ; and prayed, and stirred ourselves up, and God has since been causing his face to shine upon us. For months now, our armies have not suffered a,reverse.' And we have had victory after victory; and some, of late, are vastly important. ,, ¦ Who gets-the praise ? Gen.

1 BRITISH NEUTRALITY. - - There are political parties in' England, and they,are about as diverse in sentiment as parties are in the United States. One party, which we may denominate the people, admire republican institutions , and, ' though loyal td the 'Queen, would like to see a great change in their political affairs.' The other partyjs the Aristocracy, mostly dominant,. though their power is wa _r ning. The *peopie very extensively sympathize with us- in our present national troubles. The Aristocracy would like to see pur Republicanism a failure. Since the settlement of _^the-Trent affair, the _^Government _>of England has become wondrously impartial: _^ Under the plea of strict neutrality, it has forbidden any armed vessel, of either side 'in the war, to enter _certain of its ports, unless driven in by distress, or to abide in any .port of the ,empire beyond a fewf hours r or to get any supplies, unless to relieve urgent necessities. This, doubtless,'is thought t...
