DEATH BED _SCEHE OF REV. GEORGE CHASDLER. The following solemn and _interesting scene occurred on Sabbath, the 5th of _Februaiy, in the dying chamber of the Rev. George Chandler, the venerable pastor of the First Presbyterian Church, Kensington, Phila. In accordance with a previous determination, Messrs. Clouds, Worrell , Sedlinger, Lowery, Dougherty and Affelbaiigh, members of the Church , proceeded a y fche chamber of their dying pastor, with a view to make him a farewell visit. As they entered the room one of the brethren said to him, "Mr. Chandler, the Session have come to pay you a farewell visit,"—he replied, "Oh, brethren, I am glad to see you—yes, I am glad to see you, I want to tell you how the Lord has been dealing with _| me. For a portion of the time since I have been sick, Satan has sorely tried me, and at times almost made me think that I had been deceiving myself. He came upon me as a strong man armed, and it seemed as though the Lord had hidden his face from ...

NEW ARRANGEMENTS. No good work is accomplished without labor. An enterprise which contemplates durability and extended usefulness must have time to take root, grow) arid develop its strength. We organize a Church, establish a school, found a college, and expect the fruit after mauy days. The toil and sacrifice are the realities of to-day, while the hopeful reward of success is in the distant future. To establish a religious newspaper on a permanent and self-supporting foundation, is not a work of a day, or accomplished without much self-denying and persevering effort. It must have time to take root in the heart and affections of the Church. It must be known, aad-acquire confidence and respect as a discreet teacher of truth, and a reliable messenger of good tidings. It must create its own necessity, and make this necessity extensively felt and acknowledged. Its loyalty to truth, to the denomination, to God, must not only be vouched for, but _demonstrated. Ifc will have_ to meet...

wiwi THE BIBLE AT HAMILTON COLLEGE. ME. JciDiToa:—i was mucn _pieasea your article in the last number of the American JPreshyterian, entitled The Bible in College, and that you so highly recommended the plan which has been pursued in Hamilton College during the past year, in its introduction as a text-book into this institution, a»d its forming a part of the regular studies of the course,. , And I believe that I,utter in common the sentiments of the one hundred and fifty students who are now attending this college, when I say that it has proved a complete success. When President Fisher, in his inaugural discourse, favored the introduction of the Bible into our literary institutions, and stated the method by -_\fhieh its study might be of great advantage to the student, and not interfere with the already established studies, serious doubts were entertained whether the experiment would succeed or prove a _failure. But now that more than a year has elapsed since the attempt was m...

"ANNALS OF THE POOR. " XJHJS SICK. i It is not uncommon to find persons—often far advanced in life-r-in a state of health so feeble as to seem scarcely able to be out of bed, who are still compelled to work hard throughout the day and evening, while their earnings , after deducting their rent, which must be paid, would seem insufficient to buy even their daily bread. In some instances it is with reluctance the confession of their extreme poverty is made, and in some cases still it is not made at all. Where the parties are in-good health they may live on the coarsest fare ; but ia cases of sickness it is quite different , and except as to medicines, I know of no provision for them There is a case of an old woman, who has see» much better days, and who, though now past 70 has lost her husband and several children within but a few years. Her son remains with her. He is a young man of two or three and twentyr—a mei chanie. They continued to live comfortabl y together until a few...

SALUTATORY. Guided by providential indications ; and Impelled by a sense of duty, I have decided to accept tbe position of associate editor of the American Pees-Byterian , to which 1 have been elected by the Executive Committee of the Presbyterian Religious and Literary Association. Not _aa coining to a post of ease and emolument, but as to one of enlarged usefulness, have I made the decision. It is no sinecure that is offered me, nor would I desire it to be such. But the step is taken with the earnest desire and determination to contribute what I can to promoto the interests and enlarge the success of that grand means of advancement in Christ's Kingdom, and that right arm of denominational progress, the Religious Press. 1 have not left the pastoral office because of physical disability, because I am weary of ife or weary in it, or because my views of its transcendent dignity and usefulnesa have changed. It is scarcely two months since I removed my family into the comfortabl...

(!SU«| *» * CtLf A MM* gufkiUQHS _lutdnqttu? fe-S *l- -- .. : C_*_i : :¦ ?! Societies vs. Individual Effort.—Under this heading the New York Evangelist copies a couple of paragraphs from an English journal, as evidence that there is a disposition in England, as well as in this country, carefully to revise the system of Voluntary Benevolent Societies, by which the last half century _has been distinguished. The English journal thinks that giving to Societies takes the place of giving, to i the objects forwhich they exist, and says: "True charity neither is, nor can it ever become, purely mechanical. It has a moral element which it is of the first importance to preserve. The true giving of alms is a personal duty, to be done as privately as possible. The great law of practical charity is, ' Take heed that ye do not your alms before' men, to be seen of them. But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right'hand doeth.' We directly contradict this principle at ...

A Singular Blunder.—In November, 1855, Mr. Robert Le Roy, of this City left, at the telegraph office, for transmission to Mr. Andrew Dryburg, a florist in Philadelphia, a message which read as follows: " Send me, for Wednesday evening, two hand bouquets, very handsome,—one of five, and one of ten, dollars." By the time the message reached Philadel phia the word "hund" was expanded into hundred, and Blr. Dryburg inquired of Mr. Le Roy, by telegraph,— "Are the two hundred bouquets intended for pyramids ? Are the five and ten dollar for the table or hand?" Mr. Le Roy answered the same evening—"I wrote simply two hand-bouquets, and not two hundred. I want two bouquets for the hand—one at five, and the other at ten dollars." But before this dispatch reached Philadel phia Mr. Dryburg had cut and procured flowers for a large number of bouquets. Some time ago a suit _brought against the Telegraph Company to recover damages for this blander, was decided in his favour, but the Company ...

Should the claims for this be fully established by the numerous trials now in process the people will gain _bj the invention, while g«_os companies will be moi% enriched fmm the increased consumption arising from a diminished taxation.

The New York Senate have ordered to a third reading the bill to control the freight charges on railroads. It refers to the Central and Erie roads.

_THINGS In _UJmsJi _4JJS1.AW _im_*. That this ia one of the richest of agricultural regions, can be seen even in the barren season now brooding over it. The well-trimmed, thick-set hedges, the level fields, the fine residences with commodious and substantial barns and out-houses giving to the farmer's home almost the appearance of a village, the meek cattle, and noble horses all point to a productive and skilfully managed soil, as the _source from which alone such outward indications can flow. Nor are intellectual and spiritual wants unprovided for. The _schooMiouaes and academies are substantial buildings, and the churches have recently, in very many instances, been rebuilt and enlarged, and parsonages provided for their excellent pastors. Access is had to the region by railroads, canal and river navigation; few regions in our whole country being more favorably _situated for trade. The people are diligent, and not afraid of labor j even the wealthiest families , from the fath...

THE WHITE-WASH BEtJSH. There are some seasons of the year when people (who cannot afford or do not prefer to paint) are accustomed to white-wash their houses, fences, cellars, &c. It is a wholesome practice, and deserves commendation. We know the term "white-wash " Is sometimes used to denote a false appearance, or the snperficialness of a. good appearance_^Mt, after all, none of us ever pass a farnx-hd_^_ii_^r a country bridge* or a garden1 fence,tla _* has been skilfully whitewashed, without saying to ourselves or our companions, "See tha#pretty p lace,—how neat it looks! How much* it is improved by a little white-washl" • >? It is admitted, on all hands, that it will noffi last long. > It must be done over again next spring, perhaps, whereas, with paint, it wonld look well for some, years. But if the choice is between white-wash and that dirty, dingy, slo_^ venly appearance, every body will say, Put on the white-wash. And this is not all. Every thin...

" A Seraph by the Throne In the full glory stood. With eager hand He smote the golden harp-strings, till a flood Of harmony on the celestial air Welled forth unceasing. Then with a great voice He sang the " Holy, Holy, evermore, Lord God Almighty. " And the eternal courts Thrilled with the rapture, and the hierarchies— . Angel and rapt archangel throbbed and burned With vehement adoration.
