Washington. Utah affairs occupied the attention of the Cabinet on the 12th inst. The arrival of Hon. Philip Frank Thomas, who had been designated for the Governorship, was daily expected. la the event of his non-acceptance, the indications are that Colonel Cummings, who having once _declined, and is now an applicant, will be appointed.

From Liberia. Advices received from Liberia to the 5th of May, state that the difficulties at Cape Palmas with the natives, have been settled. There had beeu a scarcity of food, but the new crops were promising. The expenses of the war had somewhat deranged the national finances, and the government had been unable to meet its bills. So strong, however, was the confidence of the citizens 1 in their currency, that the bills could not be bought at any discount, but were in general circulation. There was a temporary scarcity of food, owing partly to the drought. The Presidential election was held on the 5 th ult. The present incumbent, Mr. Benson, was to receive the vote of all for the Presidency, but the " True Liberians," supported Col. B. P. _Yates for the "Vice Presidency while the " whigs, had nominated. Gen. Lewis. These parties differ mainly in their foreign policy, the whigs being less liberal toward those whose governments have no treaties with Liberia. They had passed a bi...

Ikon City Comjieeciai. _Coli/bgb. Pittsburgh, Pa.—The rapid growth, and great popularity of this institution, cannot bo accounted for upon any other ground than that of its real value to students in obtaining a complete business education. Bo ok-Keeping, in all its departments, from the smallest retail business up to banking, Railroading and Steamboating, is taught in the mo=t thorough and practical manner. So also with arithmetic, as applied to all commercial calculations ; and as to penmanship in all its varieties, from the plain practical hand to the most ornate and showy, it probably has no equal.

As Answer to the Common Objections to Chinese Testimony, and an earnest Appeal to the Legislature of California for their protection by our Law. By Rev. William Speer. Mr. Speer was Missionary of the Foreign Board of the Presbyterian Church, to China, and afterwards to the Chinese in California; and may, therefore, be supposed to be deeply interested in this people, and prepared also to speak of them intelligently. But still he may have taken only a partial "new of a great question. If the Chinese, in coming' to this country, should embrace Christianity, there would be no difficulty in knowing' :how to treat them; but if they come as heathens, and abide as heathens, and especially if they are to be among us in great and vastlyincreasing numbers, the matter is important in the extreme, and is encumbered with many difficulties. In person and property they should be protected, most certainly; but to give them the full rights of citizens, we should hesitate. We are a Christian peopl...

% pie For the Presbyterian Banner and Advocate. Bible Narratives.—No. 34. THE _BmTHRIGHT.—GEN. XXf: 19—34.' In the one hundred and fortieth year of the life of Abraham, Rebekah arrived from Mesopotamia, and entered the tent of Sarah, who had now been dead three years. The faith of Abraham was, however, tried twenty years, before he saw any advance of his house by literal descendants. Meanwhile, his family may have increased. Others may have received the seal of the covenant. But slowly, very slowly, did his race, in the line of the promise, indicate the multitude which had been named in the stipulations of the covenant of God with him. At length, however, Rebekah is the joyful mother of twin sons. The eldest was called Esau. He was " red, and hairy like a garment." Though the personal appearance of Jacob is not described, yet we may suppose that it was nearly the reverse of this, fair and smooth. The character of the two boys, as they grew up to manhood, was developed, as migh...

Jar % %wx% The Watchful Mother. We once sent a Sunday School book by a lady patient of ours, as a present to her little daughter. On inquiring afterwards how she liked it—" Indeed, doctor 3 1 did not give it to her , as Ihaye not yet ,had time to read it myself." That mother soon passed away, and doubtless to the better land, and long years have passed away also, but we have never failed to admire that mother's heart as often as the remembrance of her ceaseless vigilance has occurred to us, accompanied with the earnest wish, that all parents should emulate that mother's care. Up to the age of fifteen at least, and as long after as affection for the parent will prevent the child from doing anything contrary to the known wishes of father or mother, no book should be read by a child without the parent's permission. Impressions are made for life, for eternity, on the mind, and heart, and , memory of childtiood—impressions which mould'the character for aye, or open up channels of t...

_Jti ik fang Dr Herbert's Daughter. It was Saturday eve, and the study lamp burned brightly in the office of Dr. Herbert, while the coal glowed cheerfully in the polished grate. But the manly form which was seated in that easy-chair, heeded neither the light, nor the heat ; but sat with bowedhead and clasped hands, in deep and anxious thought. It was not the cares of a large and prosperous business, nor the duties of his profession, which so harassed the mind and furrowed the brow of this pious and intelligent physician. No; it was the solicitude of a Christian and a father which stirred5 the - deep 1 feelings of his soul; his daughter Caroline, so long the subject of faithful instruction and earnest prayer, was still a stranger to renewing grace. She was in her twentieth year, beautiful, accomplished, and talented: But though yielding respect to the externals of religion, her heart refused its allegiance to its Divine Author. From her earliest childhood she had manifested ave...

The Christian Pathway. BY A. M. HOTTOH. Up, arid on", and over Mountain high or blooming clover, The straight pathway lies; Look not back, for friend or lover, With thine earnest eyes.
