For the PreBby terian Banner and Advocate. v Kindness Appreciated. - \ Mb. Editoe :--God's prerogative, to bring good out of evil, is variously exemplified in the course of hisv .providence. It is an evil, fully known only to those who feel its practical operation, that ministerial salaries, graduated at first to small families and low markets, should, in general, after material changes in both these respects have taken place, be regarded as destined to remain without increase. But, with growing frequency of late,* God has overruled this state of things as the occasion of stirring up the hearts of considerate and sympathetic persons, in the way of bo,unty and personal liberality, to do well incommunicating with their respective pastors in straits of this kind. An instance of this, which none can appreciate so well as the surprised recipient, has recently occurred in the congregation of Eldersridge, Indiana County, Pa. A half dozen young ladies, as a self-constituted committee, hav...

Hew Brighton Normal Seminary. We have just received a catalogue of this flourishing institution, from which we learn that its next session will open on the first Monday of November. The catalogue of this Seminary exhibits a degree of growth and prosperity seldom met with in the history of educational enterprises. It is only a year since it passed into the hands of Prof. Curry; yet since that time the number of pupils has increased nearly three-fold, and the number of boarders fifteen-fold. Young ladies wishing to-obtain a refined, liberal, thorough, and practical education, where they can enjoy all the comforts and conveniences of a pleasant home in a place proverbial for its beauty and healthfulness, will in this institution find every facility, as its faculty, which embraces a great variety of talent and refinement, will compare favorably with that of the best colleges in the land.

[iBVKailSEMBN*1 .] What Hollanders think of Bcerhave'a Holland BiUers! J. Quintus, editor of the Sheboygan Niewsbode, in a letter dated September 6th, 1854, thus remarks: " You will observe that I have published several certificates lately. These are not mere "pttffs,*' but literally true; and should you continue advertising with us, you may expect to secure large orders from every Holland settlement in the United States." This is an extract from one of the many letters received from the Holland settlements. Surely, when Hollanders recommend the Holland Bitters so warmly, Americans may not hesitate in testing its virtues for themselves.

lADVEBTISEMENT.j • A Great Blessing to the Afflicted. The number and formidable character of diseases of Liver have long challenged the attention of medical men. Some of these diseases, classed under the general term of Consumption, . " have been supposed incurable, and the unhappy patient allowed to die, without medical science to offer him a hope of recovery. Happily this can no longer be the case. A remedy has been found, which will cure all complaints, of whatever character, arising from derangement of the Liver. The Pills discovered by Dr. MeLane, of Virginia, act directly on the Liver; and by correcting its operation, and purifying it from disease, cuts off and extirpates the complaints which have their origin in the diseases of this organ. Bemedies hitherto proposed for Liver complaints, have failed to operate upon the seat of the disease; but Dr. McLane's Pills make themselves felt upon the action of the Liver, and by cleansing the fountain, dry up the impure streams of di...
