MRS. JTTDSON'S BETROTHAL. The following beautiful and truthful sketch, written by Dr. Kendrick, is a part of the tenth chapter of the forthcoming Life and Letters:— Dr. Judsori"conducted her to the sofa, saying that he wished to talk with her. She replied, half playfully, that she should be delighted and honored by having him talk to her. With characteristic impetuosity, he inquired how she could reconcile it with her conscience to employ talents so noble in a species of writing so little useful or spiritual as the sketches which he had read. Emily's heart melted; she replied with seriousness and candor, and explained the circumstances which had drawn her into this field of authorship. Indigent parents, largely dependent on her efforts—years of laborious teaching—books published with but little profit, had driven her to still new and untried paths, in which, at last, success unexpectedly opened upon her. Making this employment purely ' secondary, and carefully avoiding every...

TJMBREIT AND.NITZSCH. One of these distinguished German theologians is dead, the other has recently celebrated the Jubilee or fiftieth anniversary of his activity as academical teacher, at the age of seventythree. Umbreit, who died April 26th, was sixtyfive years old. He had for thirty-three years been connected with the editorial department of the Studienund Kritiken, the fourth Heft of which, for I860, comes to us in mourning for his loss. Umbreit, the only son of pious parents; pursued theological studies at _Gottin gen, then under the dominant influence of Eichhorn, and was turned aside by admiration for his gifted teacher, to the pursuit of the oriental languages and literature. The1 Hebrew Scriptures were objects of profound study and interest to him, as prominent parts o£ this literature. Thus he sees in the " book of Bcclesiastes, which was the subject of his first published studies in the Old Testament, in 1818, only the "Attempt of a worldly wise Israelite," to dis...

For the American Presbyterian. NEW YORE CORRESPONDENCE, Mb. Editob,—"_^ou were surprised, as were many others, by the appearance of theatrical advertisements in the columns of a daily paper in our city, conducted, professedly upon; Christian principles; and you; have given expression to your feelings of _surprise, as others also have. We are no advocate for thfe insertion of such advertise-_^ ments in such , a paper, nor indeed in any paper. It is, in our humble judgment, all wrong. But we do not believe that this World lapse is so bad or so hopeless as yrrur readers would gather from your remarks. It is true that such advertisements have been inserted in the columns of the World, but it is nothing more than, simple justice to the intelligent and Christian editor to say, that they were inserted without his knowledge; and that it is by no means certain th_£t< _thjey will continue to be published in that paner."' _xhose who have the general control of the enterprise, are ...

.EDITOR'S TABLE. REASON ANJD THE BIBLE, or The Truth of Religion. By _Mitis P. Squint, D. B., Prof, of Moral and Intellectual Physiology, Beloit College. New York: Chas. Seritraer. 12mo. Pp.340. . There is scarcely any feature inofe apparent in our theological literature, than the disposition to re-examine the foundations of belief, and reassure oneself of _tiheir verity. This volume, of course, reminds one of Mr. Barnes' Faith in iiod's Word, which in some respeets, as a cursory examination reveals its character, resembles that Essay. Two thorough and learned articles in the Studien und Kritiken of _" t_^is|year|^oinprisingi the great bulk of two numbers, have been occupied with a similar discussion. The Princeton Review of July has _foists opening, article " The Bible its own Witness j and; Int_^reter." These and similar productions are worthy of a comprehensive criticism, such as would exceed the narrow limits of the newspaper. Dr._j Squier*s essay is brief, analytical and ...

THE PRESBYTERY OF WILMINGTON- This body met in Old Hanover Street Church, Wilmington, on Tuesday, September 25. Seven bishops and eight ruling elders were in attend ance. Perhaps the most interesting incident of the session was the reception of W. R. _Morris, Esq., of Dover, formerly of the Bar of York, Pa., and late Representative of the State Legislature from the city of Philadelphia , under the care of Presbytery as a candidate for the ministry. Mr. Morris is a man in middle life, of excellent reputation in his profession, but for a long time, and especially since his connection with the church, _hia mind has been powerfully drawn to the ministry, so that he can realize the _meaniDg of the Apostle's solemn declaration:—"Wo is me, if I preach not the Gospel !" Mr. Morris has been pursuing a course of theological studies, and parts of trial were assigned him with a view to licensure six months hence. The subjects discussed by appointment of Presbytery, were timely and impor...

_ANNUAL ! COirC&R_* OF PRAYER. The Second Annual Concert of Prayer tor Unity of the Spirit was held on Monday morning of this week, in the Church of the Epiphany in this city. Notwithstanding the inclemency of the weather, the house was filled, and the meeting was one of marked and niemorable interest. Eev. BiehardNewton, D.D., occupied the chair A hymn _c prepared_^ for the occasion was sung. Among others, Dr., Jenkins made pertinent remarks. He said thai off such an occasion the spontaneous _utterance of the heart was, It is good to be.here j and we-felt like constructing a tabernacle consecrated to the spirit of Unity. To realize the last prayer of _Christy in the increased visibility of Christian unity, there is need of a deeper spirituality. In the language of the hymn just sung, «' Nearer do1 the children come, As nearthey draw to thee." And the universal Christian prayer and effort should be moreand more, that Judah and Ephraim may not envy and vex each other, b...

" The PBESBXTEBiiif • _BlANuiJi ** is a neat 18 mo., containing forms for the records of the Session, Presbytery, and Synod; and for judicial and other ecclesiastical proceedings required by the polity of the Presbyterian Church. It is, we think, the only book of its class, and one much needed. The labor of preparing it iras undertaken by the Rev. John N. Lewis, at the request of a Committee ofiitheiGeneral Assembly. The original design was to append the "forms" to the. new Digest of the Acts and Decisions o_£ the Assembly, which the committee has been_, appointed to arrange. When, however, it was ascertained that the Digest must be made so much more voluminous than was at first intended, Mr? Lewis was ?_i_*equ£sted to enlarge the plan of the Manual, and to ...

ANOTHER DISASTER Iff IOWA. We give below a letter from Rev. _W Jfi. JJeiavan, an esteemed brother in Iowa, containing the very painful intelligence of the destruction of the unfinished church edifice which his people, with great effort, were erecting in Wyoming. Mr. Delavan and his people deserve, and will have the deep sympathy of the brethren, wherever their misfortune is known. Their prompt and almost heroic determination to repair these unexpected and serious damages, should secure for them not only sympathy, but a hearty co-operation. We may feel very sure that it will be no 'inefficient ' kind of a church that is reared under such difficulties. ' ' ;_,.. ' . . ., ¦ " . ' .,'. .. ' . ' ,.,.-. ,,/, '' . ' _, - ' ' .

OPEN AIR PREACHING IN PHILADELPHIA. The following, which we clip from Saturday's Press, shows what the Christian ministers and people are doing in our city for the evangelization of the masses, in addition to the usual means of grace. It is a good work, and we are not surprised that the Lord is setting to it his seal of approval. We are glad to see that prominent laymen are render ing efficient aid in the work. It should not be left entirely, or even principally, to our over-tasked clergymen, whose regular Sabbath services are quite sufficient for theirstrength. Some weeks ago an experiment was inaugurated in this city, which is likely to prove successful. We allude to a series of open air religious services, conducted by ministers and othersin some of the lanes and by_^p laces of our- city, where the resi dents j either from their, poverty (the ehureh should blush to confess it) or disinclination, are practically outside the pale of gospel influence. The following interesti...

THE O CTOBER EFFORT. This is the month desig nated by the General Assembly for a collection in all the Churches in behalf of the Publication Cause. By a simultaneous, hearty, whole-souled effort, it is proposed to raise the sum of twenty-five thousand dollars as a mo _derate, yet safe basis for the operations of the Committee. Though this sum is small compared with the capital invested by other Denominations in this vital department of religious labor, it is deemed by our Assembly sufficient for the demands of the body—more than which it is not wise to attempt. Less than this it would be a discredit to us to achieve. Whilst no one of our denominational interests is more important than' this, none has been sus-19 111111*2 lUl_^fUl UttUV _IIUUU _WlUj _uuuv uuw _ivwuu »_s<m.u tained thus far with greater labor and self-sacrifice by its devoted friends—at the same time (we are 'sorry to say it,) a goodly number of our churches will now have an opportunity—to make to it th...

RETURN OF DR. JENKINS We are happy to announce the return of our esteemed and beloved ministerial brother and colaborer, Kev. J)t, Jenkins, from bis European tour. , He arrived in this city on Thursday last. His health has been benefited by the trip, though there is something still to be wished for in this particular. Our fine autumn climate will doubtless supply the lack of service of the transatlantic summer, and complete entirely the restoration of his health. Dr. Jenkins was warmly welcomed in the Sansom Street prayer-meeting on Thursday. Kev. Mr. Chambers, with that spontaneous cordiality so natural to him, extended a warm welcome to the returned brother, whom _hfc unexpectedly saw before him, and led in a prayer of thanksgiving; after which Dr. Jenkins arose and addressed the meeting as follows;—I felt anxious to find my way to this meeting at the earliest possible moment to testify to the power of prayer. It is in answer to your prayers that I am here in somewhat rene...

HOME MISSIONS AND CO-OPERATION. Under this head the last Congregational Herald of Chicago, has an article giving the Congregational side of the question with tolerable fairness, at least so far as general principles are concerned. The charge of unfairness would lie against it as ignoring the special influences under which the general principles were brought into action. We mean to say, the oppressive and unconstitutional acts of the A. H. M. S. towards our churches in Missouri, and in the Alton and Schuyler Presbyteries, have been almost entirely overlooked But even what is said on the general principles, particularly oh the exercise of Presbyterial power over the churchesj ne,eds to be revised and corrected. The writer, H. C. J., (to be read backwards we suppose,) in comparing Congregational with Presbyterian Churches, says of the former: "Above the churches there is no body to exercise control over government or benevolent action , except by giving light; none that would ent...

ot tne CORRECTION. In an editorial report of the proceedings 4th Presbytery of Philadelphia, at Belvidere, published in the Christian Observer of last week, there is the following sentence :— " The Rev. Mr. Duffield ga.ve an account of the pecuniary difficulties of his church, and the removal of members. It had no elders left, and it was kept alive as a church by the Spirit of God." What the inferences would be from such a.senr tence, each reader must determine for himself. Mr. Duffield_'s account of the pecuniary difficulties of his church was simply this—rthafc the years of the panic their income was much reduced, but that the year following, after a powerful revival, the receipts were increased more than threefold. In stead of saying "it had no elder left," Mr. Duffield said that " there were no elders left of those whom he found in tlie session-eight years ago when he came there." As to being *' kept alive by the Spirit of God/' it gave him great pleasure to state, that ...

SYRIA AND THE TURKS The day of violence in Syria seems to have passed for the present, and the hour of retribution is really come. Fuad Pasha is acting with cammendable energy in the dispensation of justice to the offenders. He is about to compel all the Moslem young men in Damascus, not executed for murder, to enter the Turkish army for life, in distant parts of the Empire. This is worse to many a Moslem, than death itself. The great Mohammedan dignitary of Damascus has been arrested for complicity in the outbreak. There is intense and scarcely smothered indignation among the Mohammedans at these summary proceedings, which may lead to further trouble. The French troops have not yet been brought into action. B'hamdun, the home of Mr. and Mrs. Benton, is still represented as unmolested.

THE AMERICAN BOARD As we go to press, the fiftieth anniversary of this venerable and noble Christian institution is' commencing. The occasion promises to be one of deep and thrilling interest. A week ago two thousand names of persons proposing to attend the services had been registered by the Committee. Besides these there were perhaps as many who were expecting to lodge privately with friends in Boston, President S. W. Fisher, of Hamilton College, preached the Jubilee Sermon in place of President Hitchcock, who is prevented by sickness from filling the appointment. We have made arrangements for full reports, which will appear in our issue of next week.
