Select |j0rfrg. The Gates of Zion. «< The Loi*d loveth the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of Jacob." The earth is the Lord's, and its fulness; He rules in the kingdoms of men; Alike on the good and the efil, He sendeth his sunshine and rain. The Lord is a glorious Sovereign, He rules in the armies above; The righteous rejoice in his sceptre, And praise his invincible love. Yet saith he, " The kingdom and nation That will not serve Zion, shall cease;" Yea! they shall be utterly wasted, But Zion shall surely increase. To her shall the Gentiles be gathered—To Zion, the isles of the sea; Shall bring in their tribute of glory, And bend at her altars the knee. The Church of the blessed Bedeemer, Engraved on the palms of his hands, For ages oppressed and afflicted, Shall yet be the joy of all lands. Then tremble, ye nations and kingdoms, That lift over Zion the rod; lor he, who hath chosen, still loves her—- •/ Her friend and Redeemer is God. The pomp and the pride ...

among the churches, in sustaining the benevolent designs, and operations of the Assembly's Boards, may not do much to lessen their spirituality, and consequently very much retard their advanceiueat ? A neglect of duty, especially if tbat neglect be habitual, always produces such effects, to a greater or less extent. Now, to fail in the exercise of a suitable liberality to the Board of Missions, and others of a similar kind, under the supervision of the General Assembly, can not be viewed in any other light, if the Scriptural authority,of the Assembly, as the Church's highest delegated authority be admitted, than the neglect of a very important Christian duty. These several Boards belonging to our Church, were created for the express purpose, that all the cBnrches -within our bounds, might be furnished with responsible and efficient organs, through which, by their contributions, they might become more extensively instrumental, in the extension of the Redeemer's kingdom in the world...

score or two of Presbyteries. But they have for many years past been a vexation and an incumbrauce. .1 v 1 We pray, therefore, that your venerable body may take the requisite measures to secure an entire revision of that part of our Constitution herein referred to. This Overture may serve to bring the matter before the Assembly, but it is altogether too indefinite to be of any avail in. leading to useful alterations. We trust that some members of the Presbytery who have thus brought the matter forward, will, timous-\yf present for the consideration of the churches, distinct amendments lucidly expressed, showing the necessity of a change, and wherein the proposed change would be a remedy. Whatever amendments may be adopted, should embrace, as seems to us, a limitation as to the extent to which Appeals and Complaints may be carried; and also a restriction as to the subjects which may be brought before the Assembly, in either of these ways. . It is unreasonable to ask that two hundre...

City Affairs—Sad Prospects—The Clergy and Politics — The Press — A combination without influence — Liberal Expenditures —A Reflection, New York, November 8, 1856. New York breathes more freely, now that the election is over ; at least the external irritation of this excitable city is diminished. Other things will now be heard of besides politics, which of late have engrossed public attention, and superseded social amusements, as well as business and religious engagements. Concerts, lectures, and the theatres themselves, expect to profit by the removal of the pressure under which private families and public bodies have been burdened. The election itself passed off with less disturbance and violence than was anticipated. . There were fighting and bullying in a few of the wards. A few policemen and private citizens were roughly handled; several ticket boxes were overturned and demolished; some persons were deterred or restrained from voting; but no lives were For tie Presbyterian B...

MisreprGseatalion.—Tae Reformed Pies- j bytsrian. One of the greatevils connected with Partyismteniisreprescntation. Id political discus- t sion, when you read an essay or letter on one j side, you can never feel confident that you are presented with a fair view of the case. It is but seldom, or almost never, that the position of the other side is either fully or even fairly exhibited. It is hence always wise to suspend your judgment, till you can make farther inquiry. And the same is, unhappily, very much the case with religious denominations. It would appear to be almost impossible for poor human nature to state anything correctly, which is connected with those who may be not of our party or sect. This is one of the things which show, not only the universal depravity of man; but which prove that sanctification, even in the best is, in this life, imperfect. These reflections were awaked by our reading in the Reformed Presbyterian, for November, a few remarks relative to our own C...

Church Extension. We have learned that the Synods of Cincinnati, Indiana, Northern Indiana, Wisconsin, Iowa, Missouri, Ohio, and Pittsburgh, appointed the month of November as the season for taking up collections in the churches for Church Extension. It is highly desirable that every congregation shail participate in this important work. The .Committee is pledged for a number of churches now in progress. Still more are applicants for aid; and a thousand are actually needed just now, which should be erected next Summer. Let every adult and every child east something into the treasury. Have at least one brick in the walls, or one shingle in the roof of a house of God, for the use of his people. Three Sabbaths yet remain in the month.

Bev. Dudley A. Tyng. This popular clergyman is Hector of the ' Church of the Epiphany, (Protestant Episcopal,) in the eity of Philadelphia. A few months ago, in his ministrations to his charge, he thought it to be his duty to preach on the excitine topic of the day—Kansas and its implications. One of the officers of the congregation rose at the time, and remonstrated. The minister was firm in the execution of his purpose, and atterwards ¦ justified his course. Feeling ran high. The vestry requested the pastor to resign. This he refused to do, but referred the case to the people, to be decided in the early part of this month. The vote has been taken, and the result is : lor the vestry, 57; against the vestry, 44; blank, 1. This result involves the immediate resignation of Mr. 'Tyng.

¦« . m.» m » , . '.. '... Overture on Judicial Proceedings. The regu lations of our Church Disci pline seem to be very simple and equitable in their provisions for the trial of persons charged with delinquencies;. and yet they are found , in practice, to be very tedious and uncertain. Whether the fault lies in the law, or in the administrators, is a question of importance. If in the latter, a remedy is to be found in the cultivation of a better spirit; if in the former, a wise revision of our rules would be a great benefit. One Presbytery at least, the mother Presbytery, thinks that good would result from a revision, and adopts the following Overture: The Presbytery of Philadelphia respectfully represent to the General Assembly, that in their judgment there is imperative need of a revision of that part of the Constitution of our Church which relates to Judicial Proceedings. We will refer, simply by way of illustration, to the obscurity of the Book in respect to the question (in ...

Proposed Union. At the recent meeting of Bethel Presbytery, S. C, incipient arrangements were made to receive a small body of "Independent" Presbyterians, who had seperated from the General Assembly, near fifty years ao-o , in connexion with the Kev. Wm. 0. Davis. Committees had been appointed previously, which now presented articles of union which were accepted by Presbytery, by a vote 27 to 3 j and were referred to tne next Assembly for approval. The Independents now profess not to hold to the form of error promulgated by Mr Davis. Mr. Davis had exhibited his views in a book, called « The Gospel Plan," in 1807, and had been deposed in 1811. His adherents were never very numerous.
