TO WHOM AILEGIANCI IS BUI—JESUS BE CIDES A POLITICAL ttUESTION. The action of the G-eneral Assembly at Philadelphia, in May last, was zealously opposed by Dr. Hodge and a few others • opposed on the floor of the house, in a Protest put on record, and in the Biblical Repertory for July. _Southerners have since maligned it virulently, making it an occasion for separating from the Church j and some still are expressing great sorrow at its character_. The main objection, as stated in the words of the Protest, xsj " We deny the right " of the General Assembly to decide the politi cal question, to what Government the allegiance of Presbyterians, as citizens, is due." The italics here are (Ours. The effort, by the use of the epithet " political," to stir up prejudice against the Assembly, and also to>pervert the meaning of the Assembly's act by intimating t at the rebellion is a " Government;" and the insinuation that nought but our duty to man—our duty "as citizens" is decl...

Synod of Allegheny.-—This body closed a remarkably harmonious meeting at New-Castle, Lawrence County, Pa., last week. The usual routine business was transacted with more than usual spirit, and the devotional exercises were delightfully solemn. Resolutions, respecting the state of the _fiojintry,.were passed unanimously, all the members rising, thus giving great force to the expression of sentiment of the resolutions. It was our expectation to have, been able to give this paper, this week, along with the -entire proceedings, but the Minutes were not furnished in time. On Sabbath evening, the Rev. Dr. Swiit preachad a very able and interesting sermon, _commemorative of the life, character-, and labors of the late Rev. Bobebt Johnson, one of the early ministers in this region. The Synod was highly delighted with a visit from the Rev. JoftN CLowrie, D,DM onerof:the Secretaries of our Board of Foreign Missions.

EASTERN SUMMARY BOSTON'AND NE W-ENGLAND. War has some effect on weddings. The number of -marriage certificates issued in Boston, thus far this year, is one hundred less than the same time last year. The Rev. Dr. Blagden , of the Old South church, Boston, preached hid quarter century anniversar y serm' on,'# a few days ago , from Job viii: 8-10— " Inquire, I pray thee, of the former age, and prepare thyself to the search of thy fathers; (tor we but f are o yesterday, and know nothing, because our days upon the earth are a shadow •) shall not they teach thee, and tell thee , and utter words out_^f their hearts?"

BROWNSON'S REVIEW This is one of the leading literary periodicals of the Roman Catholics, and may be taken as an index of popular sentiment among them. The Pittsburgh Catholic,in noticing the October number of Brownson, says: The fourth article is a vigorous' defense of the cause of the Union, well worthy of Dr. Brownson. He is unsparing in his denunciation of the " peace makers,'1 cowards, and traitors of the loyal States." He shows the necessity of supporting the Government, in order that the nation ¦ be preserved ; and fittingly silences those . clamorous individuals, who have had so much to say about the " unconstitutional measures " of the Administration. We would willingly give portions of the article, did we not prefer to urge our readers to g,et the Review and read it for themselves. Perhaps many will think that the editor goes too far in recommending that ' the abolition of slavery be made the war cry of tho Union army. This, however, will not detract from the gener...

Presbyterian Historical Almanac, for 1861 —Our friend, Joseph M. Wilson, Esq., Ill South Tenth Street, Philadelphia, is * prosecuting, with great assiduity, his work upon the Prcbyterian Historical Almanac It will be issued before the,beginning of the year, and will be quite an improvement upon the former excellent numbers. Every clergyman , surely, should have it. The statistical information is worth far more than the cost of the book. To have the number of churches in every branch of the Presbyterian family, the number of their ministers, members , new additions, contributions to benevolence, as these may vary and increase from year to year—to have all tKis at hand, is a source of gratification of no small value, and it saves much time in _^investigations calling for the attention of all Christian ministers. Our ruling elders should also have the work; and every privae member of the Church, might find it a source of interesting information. The Biographical record of all Presb...

Ordination of a Missionary.—Mr. Samuel C. George w .as ordained a missionary to Siam , on Thursday, the 3d inst., by the Presbytery of Allegheny City, in the First church of Allegheny. In these services the Rev. Dr. Plumer preached the sermon and the Rev. Dr. Swift gave the charge. The congregation was large and _^ _solemn_. The wife of Mr. George was formerly Miss Gill , of Allegheny, a sister of Mrs. Johnson, one of our martyr missionaries at Futtegurrh. Though one sister fell in the high places of the field, the Lord has pre pared another to take her place. The wrath of man eannot defeat the purposes of God. Mr. and Mrs. George will sail , in about two weeks, • from New-York for Siam. It should- be a matter of sincere gratitude to God that notwithstanding the disordered state of public affairs, and the terrible rebellion that has risen up in the land, our young men still come forward to devote themselves to the foreign field, and our Church is still enabled to send them abroa...

Mr. W. II. Russell, the London Times' Correspondent, and the _Saobatfi,—Mr. Russell lately took a trip from Washington to the West, for the purpose of spending some time in hunting. While out there he seems to have supposed himself beyond the reach of law, and above the criticism of public opinion, for which he in general expresses great contempt. For he went abroad as usual, on the Sabbath, and engaged in shooting game, knowing no doubt that he was violating the laws of the State of Illinois. Butct our own, correspondent" of the Times was brought before a magistrate, and fined $30, one half of which goes to the school fund, for his disregard of the laws of G-od and man. It was a shame for a man so highly honored as he has been in this country, and representing such a great interest.of another Christian country, to thus trample on an institution considered sacred by the laws of both countries. No doubt in his next letter Mr. Russell will give the people of Wilmington, Will Count...

Another Resignation.—The Rev. Randolph A. De Lancet, Secretary of the South Western Advisory Committee of our Board of Domestic Missions at New Orleans, has resigned because of the endorsement of secession by the Southern portion of our Church. Mr. De Lancey is well known as a devoted servant of the Divine Master. He is loyal to the Union, and on this account has found it necessary to leave the city and region where he has resided for many years. Quite a number of the ministers of our Church have left the South for the same cause, and from among these, some of our vacant churches may secure able, faithful, and experienced pastors. They are men that have sacrificed much for their Church and country. And we doubt not that here and there, even in the seceded States, ministers of our Church may be found who have not yet bowed to treason and rebellion. ¦ •

New Publications Reviewed. From" the seventh article we quoted largely, last week. The others we have not sufficiently examined. Our glance at the second, compels us to dissent from the writer's views; and as the*teachings of the article depart from the commonly received doctrines of our Church on a subject so vital as that .of Imputation, it fills us with regret.
