Beirot, Saturday, Aug. 4. This morning we received news from Damascus that Fuad Pasha had commanded the Moslem population to deliver up their, arms and they had refused. It is supposed by many that he will destroy the Moslem quarter if they persist. To-day we received four thousand pounds of sea biscint from the admiral of the English fleet, and distributed about one thousand pounds . to the hungry multitude. The rush of men, women, and children was fearful. Wo had their names written in lists, and as fast as they were called they crowded up to the paling behind which we were standing with the huge sack of biscuit, and we dealt it out by measure to bach person. As they had no bags or baskets in which to carry the food, they pulled off their caps, girdles, a...

THE CHILDREN OH THE PLAINS The Messrs. Garters have 'published a little book with this title, which we are quite sure will prove a greafe favorite with American Children, and those of other countries perhaps too. It is the story of a brother and sister who started off with their mother to cross the great plains in the western parfc of our country on the way to California to look after- their father who had gone to that country some time previous. On the way the mother died of cholera, and the Emigrant party greatly discouraged turned back; but the two children anxious to see their father and to bear him the mother's dying message persisted in the journey and executed it, amid many instructive and interesting incidents, which are said to be, ill the main, true. Below we give one of the chapters, headed. Sunday. Curtis was waked the next morning by hearing Buth singing, " Welcome, sweet day of rest," in her own cheerful way. "Why it is Sunday, I declare!" said Curtis to himself,...

Miliiiliiifjil THE MOST INTEBISTIHG SIGHT. Mr. George H. Stuart, recently returned from a visit to the revival scenes of Great Britain, narrated the following as the most interesting of the many' things he saw in his visit. We quote from the report of the Sunday-school Times. I have been often asked, what was the most _interesting thing you have seen on the other side of the water? Truly, I have seen a good deal that is of interest to the Christian. These public meetings, accounts of which you have no doubt received, were indeed remarkable. Sometimes 3,000, 4,000, and 10,000 were present at one time. In the gardens of Belfast, on one occassion there could not have been _lessj by the tickets taken at the doorthan 50,000 people assembled j 30,000 around the main platform-, and twenty other platforms scattered through the gardens, at which the worship of God, sibgirig, prayer, and exhortation, were constantly going on, at such a distance from each other. as not to cause confusion...

HOME COKVEItSATIOSi. Children hunger perpetually for new ideas, and the most pleasant way of reception is by the voice and the ear, not the eye and the printed page. The one mode is natural, the other artificial. Who would not rather listen than read ? We not nnfrequently pass by in the papers a ftlll report of a lecture, and then go and pay bur money to bear the self-same words uttered. An audience will listen closely from the beginning to the end of an address which not one in twenty of those present would read with the same attention. This is emphatically true of children. _They will learn with pleasure from the lips of _jiarentfs what they de_$m it drudgery to study in the books; and even if they have the misfortune to be deprived of the educational _Advantages which they desire, they cannot fail to grow up intelligent if they enjoy in childhood and youth the privilege of listening daily to the conversation of intelligent people. Let parents, then, talk much and talk well at h...
