DE. SCUDDEE. The three first lectures of Dr. Seudder on India, in spite of the unfavorable weather , have been attended by crowded houses. In addition to the fund of valuable information, delineations of scenery, habits, customs and sports of the natives of India, the Doctor intersperses his lectures with a spice of humor and genial wit, and often convulses the audience with the rehearsal of a pleasant incident , or ludicrous _anecdote. They are a very taking as well as instructive course of lectures. The two additional lectures will be given on the evenings of the 10th and 16th inst. 4_<_4M^»

Law among the Doctors.—In a base before Justice Conlon_, the other day, in Indianapolis, wherein one physician claimed pay from another for visiting a patient, at. his request, ifc was shown in evidence that it was a custom with physicians not to make charge for visiting another's patient, when requested by the physician in attendance to do so. - The Justice held that custom made law, and that the complaining physician would have to abide the rules and regulations of his profession. The custom, the Judge held, was paramount to the law governing the case, and if the complainant expected to get pay for his services_^ he would have to bring an action against the party whom he served as a physician, and not against the person who requested him to act as such. _, The Medical Society of Richmond, Va., denounce the custom prevalent in some quarters, of physicians accepting of a stipulated yearly fee for their services; as dangerous to families and unjust to the profession.

Bevival in the East Indies.—There are signs that the. great revival has extended to the distant .East. Dr. Duff has been conducting a special union service of ten days in Calcutta, and a deep-impression has been produced by the occasion. Without any public notice the hall was tolerably well filled on the first day. Though the subsequent mornings were occasionally blustering and rainy, the hall was always well filled, sometimes overcrowded. Instead of abating, the interest appeared to increase to the very last. Many declared that they obtained new insight into the meaning of God's word, new and more impressive views of divine realities, and were greatly revived and refreshed in spirit. Christians of all denominations drew nearer to each.other in the bonds of a common faith and love. Pious laymen, belonging to the various churches , had for the first time taken an active . and-effective share in such public devotional meetings, and, amid all the services, so completely were all one ...

Prof. Huntingdon's Reasons for Resigning.— Prof. Huntington's letter conveying to the corporation of Harvard Ms resignation of the offices of Preacher and Plummer Professor, explains the reasons of that act. The following passage defines one of the troubles in the College: "I am conscious of an increased difficulty in the discharge of one chief part of my duties here. In the original design of the founder of the chair I have occupied there' appears to be no evidence that the office of preaching and administering church ordinances was contemplated. It was found convenient, owing to fche vacancy in the Hollis Professorship and other facts, to connect this pastoral office with the _Plummer foundation. By the laws, that portion of fche under-graduates required to attend' public worship on the Lord's day in the chapel has .consisted of such as remained in Cambridge on that day, excepting al way those whose denominational relations lead them away to other parishes.

mtimwu mmaumt The Presbytery Of Caytlga held its recent annual meeting in the village of Union Springs. The Rev. George W. Warne was chosen Moderator. The opening sermon by Eev. S. S. Goss, of Meridian, was a thorough and timely discussion of the subject of Christian Philanthropy. The first hour of the morning session was spent in prayer and conference, with manifest tokens of the Spirit's presence. Two of the pastors had come from scenes of revival, and others spoke of encouraging signs in their respective fields of labor. The remainder of the morning was occupied in bearing the narratives of religion, and statistical reports, which denoted a healthy condition of the churches. Gratifying statements were made by the professors of the Theological Seminary at Auburn, of the prosperity of that institution in numbers, and the spirit of study and devotedness of the students to the work of preparing themselves for the Christian ministry. The Communion Season in the afternoon was a p...

Presbyterians of Color.—The colored membership of the Old School Presbyterian Church at the South is large, though we believe they have never been represented in the General Assembly by men of eolor_^either clerical or lay. In the Presbytery of Charleston, S. C, 1637 out of 2,889 members, or considerably over one-half, are colored. In the whole Synod of South Carolina, 5,009 out of 13,074, are colored members. The Presbyteries, of Mississi ppi and Central Mississippi, of Tuscaloosa and South Alabama, of Georgia, of Concord and Fayetteville, also show many churches with a large proportion of colored communicants, from one-third to one-seventh of- the whole. In the whole of the above mentioned bodies, there are 9,076 colored, out of 33,667 communicants. Among the churches of these Presbyteries we find twenty with an aggregate colored membership of 3,600, or an averageof 130 to each. An application for ordination was recentl y presented to the Georgia (Methodist) Conference by a co...

_^ , Sherburne, If. Y.—The pastor pi the Congregational Church, writes as follows: " We are in the midst of a revival. For five weeks, God by his Spirit has been converting men, women and the dear youth of Sherburne. The work began in the First Congregational Church, and seems tohbe extending to the Methodist and Baptist congregations. The meetings appear like " Union Meetings;" yet there was no such union when the revival .commenced. The inquiry room is full every evening, and the audience large. We have been assisted by the Rev. O. Parker, the Evangelist, and the Rev. H. Doane, of Norwich, is now preaching every evening with good effect. We hope the work will extend all around us, for we have positive evidence that multitudes are willing to come to Christ. The work is very quiet, but it is apparently thorough, and the converts are laboring zealously for their Master . . God be Braised for his mercv and love _tneir master, _woa _oe praisea ior nis mercy ana love to us." A.M'D. ...

Three thousand dollars were given on the plates, and as soon as the benediction was pronouncedj some of the congregation came forward to ascertain the deficit, which was promptly made up, to the great delectation of the Rector, and to the decided advantage of the missionary treasury.

"The Clraren" in New _York.~The 'Christian Advocate and Journalf well gives the following specimen of High Church assumptions and absurdities:— . ' " • " ;¦ '•" ' ¦ ¦ ';; _- ' . ¦ ' ' ¦ ' ¦ _' . ' ¦ ' . _' .

What the Churchman means by this sad spiritual destitution is, that there are only so many Episcopal churches and priests in these wards. The churches and ministers of other denominations are wholly " ignored. Nothing is more ridiculous than the assumptions of the Churchman. If New York had to depend upon Trinity for the Gospel, our destitution would excite the sympathy of the Christian world—and missionaries from India and the South Sea Islands would soon come to our...
