Revival Efforts—Synod of Wheeling. We are pleased to notice in the Minutes of the Synod of Wheeling (received at an nour too late for publication this week,) an earnest recommendation to ministers : 1. In conducting devotional exercises in their congregations, " to make the revival of religion, by the effusion of the Holy Spirit , a prominent object of supplication." 2. Oq or about the third Sabbath in November, ( 16th insfc.,) to preach on the necessity of a revival, ' and on the Scriptural means of promoting it." 3. As soon after the Sermon as convenient , to convene the Session " to confer together oa the state of vital godliness in their respective churches, and the most efficient means of its promotion." 4. If deemed expedient, to invite a meeting of those " who specially desire a revival of God's work of grace, to the end that they may take counsel and offer prayer in regard to this great We^Qg." This notice willlserve for the brethren and ^gaJiT^bes of the Synod till next w...

Rev. Simeon Brown. It has fallen to the lot of this brother to be the occasion of much trouble to the churches. We formerly noted some of his doctrinal statements, indicating, as seemed to us, most certainly that his views were different from the received faith of the Church, as expressed in her Standards. Mr. Brown had appealed from the decision of his Presbytery to the Synod of Cincinnati. That Synod, at its late meeting, took up the subject onreview, and, after some discussion, adopted the following: , " Resolved, That the whole case be remanded to the Presbytery, and they be enjoined to take it tip anew—ab inilio, and to adopt such a course as the facts and circumstances of the case may demand." - The Moderator of the Presbytery has, as we learn, called a meeting for the 17th of November, in the First church, in Dayton, id attend to the Synod's injunction.:

Psalmody. We place on our first page, a specimen of a new Metrical translation of the Psalms of David. The translator is a sound Presbyterian, and eminently a Biblical scholar. The communication on." Seriptural Psalmody," will also be read with interest. The whole subject is worthy the deep attention of our own, and of sister Presbyterian Churches. We rejoice to see the evidences of generally awakened interest, and shall be pleased to be enabled to present farther specimens of a work which we hope will progress to a completion.

American Sunday School Union. The Kev. John W, Dulles has retired from the service of this Institution, and the Rev. K B. Westbrook, who has forsome time sustained the relation of Traveling Secretary, has been appointed Secretary of Missions, in the place of Mr. Dulles, and will hereafter conduct the correspondence of the Missionary Department of the Society, and also superintend the collecting department of the Middle District _ «» »' > Missionary Wants. Promptitude and liberality on the part of the churches is urged importunately. A missionary must have food every day, and the nearness of the Winter's blasts calls for additional raiment. These things cannot be deferred. The Secretary of the Domestic Board is obliged again to tell the churches of a failing Treasury and large demands. Read his appeal, on first page. If agents may not be ,sent, the Church papers must speak, and ministers and elders must act.

Minutes of Synods.—The Minutes ot the Synods of Wheeling, Hew Jersey and Illinois will appear nexfc week. They arrived too late for this week. Also, some matters from Presbyteries are necessarily deferred. , Oub London Letter is always rich. Let none be deterred from reading it, by its length. Every paragraph is valuable. It tells of tie most important affairs in the most influential centre of all the influences which bear on human well-being.

For the Presbyterian Banner and Advocate. Ohio Correspondence. Mr. Editor :—Did you ever hear of the city of Zanesville, on the Eastern bank of the river Muskingura, about three score miles from its mouth ? It is a place of some note and age, and ranks high as a manufacturing town among the business men of our State. It is surrounded by one of the finest agricultural regions in the Union. Its coal, water, stone, and railroad privileges, are too exterisive to admit of description or limitation. Its health is proverbial. People grow old here, it is said, but they seldom die. The only thing that cramps and cripples the outward prosperity of this city at present, is the monopoly of money in the hands of a few, who also own much of the properthemselves ty, and will neither improve ife , nor sell it to others who would improve it I Hence, some whole streets look quite antiquated and not only evince the dilapidations of time, but a want of good taste and public spirit. The fact is,...

JgrktrltaraL When, and How, to set out Trees. ,1. We advise to-set* out most kinds of fruit-trees in the Fall, as soon as may be after the leaves have dropped from them'. Peach, apricot and nectarine trees are trans planted more safely in the Spring, as early as the ground will admit of being worked. 2. Deciduous shade-trees and shrubs, that is, those which shed their leaves in Autumn, should be set as soon as the leaves fall. The above two rules do not apply to very cold latitudes, where the ground remains deeply frozen for four or five months in the year. In such localities, early Spring transplanting is thought to be the safest. .. 3. Evergreen trees and shrubs are best transplanted in May, June, August or September, at the North—earlier at the South. 4. In taking up trees, great care should be used to save unbroken as many as possible of the very small roots and fibres, even those so minute as to be scarcely seen without a magnifying glass. Upon the number tif these, whi...

iffit^fn li tY^ftit ^ K ^^y A Clerical Anecdote. Some thirty-five or forty years ago, a Mr. Williams, a clergyman of the Old School, somewhat eccentric, came to Salem, from the country, to exchange desks with one of his brethren in the ministry. During the Sabbath-noon intermission, he said to his daughter, " I am going to lie down; if St. Paul comes himself, don't you disturb me." Mr. Bentley, who preached in the East church, who had been very intimate with Mr. Williams, but had not seen him for several years, hearing he was in town, hurried off after dinner to make his old friend a call. "Where is Brother Williams?" he inquired as he met the daughter. " He can't be disturbed, sir; not even if St. Paul should call." "I must see Mm I" was the impatient rejoinder, in the inimitable manner peculiar to Mr. Bentley. Resistance to such , a musi was out of the question. The room of the sleeper was designated. With no gentle voice, and a corresponding shake, Mr. Williams was arouse...

CM-% j IrfrmftY Borrow Ho Trouble. BY CLARA AUGUSTA. There's sorrow enough in this lower world of ours, And abundance of tear- drops and sighing, And wliilc man shall lire he always will find Causes m plenty to set liim a-cry ing; But he need n't look out "with a mote-searching eye For perplexity's first tiny bubble. Won't you listen, good man, to a piece of adviee ? Trust in God, and borrow no trouble. Life's river flows not over beds of sweet roses, Nor always, o'er sands that are shining, And poison sometimes lurks along the green vines Which 'round the rough coast-rocks are twining. But though life be a river of quicksands and whirls, Or a field covered o'er with coarse" stubble, It always is best to look on the bright side, Trust in God, and borrow no trouble. There's faith's lamp to guide us o'er all the dark places, And Hope "with her torches e'er burning, And we need fear no evil, nor stray from the path, For it hath not a " shadow of turning;" Heaven smiles in the d...

[This story is one of those rare pearls we love to place before our readers. We cannot mention tne publication in which it first appeared, for some forgetful editor has failed, to make the credit due.—Home Magazine.^ There were three of us—Kate, Annette, and myself—and we were going into the old wood to hunt for strawberries. Oh ! it was such a delicious day in June. The birds sang till the air was fairly vocal with their melody, and all the green trees nodded their heads in approbation. The very brook seemed to have caught the general inspiration, and danced along through the meadows, as if keeping time to a quickstep of the. fairies.
