S'jpctttocral Sugar CJaae. The New York Herald says: The Chinese sugar-cane seed, distributed by the Patent office last Spring, promises to be a complete success at the .North. A package of seed was planted in Bucks county, Pa., latitude 40A degrees North) and: has arrived at maturity. The maximum height of the stock was ten feet, and the product in grain much greater than ¦• any rcereab uader ^cultivation. The stalk is perfectly green after the seed has reached maturity,,; and the saccharine principle is then fully- developed. The ^ juice, which is most abundant, is very saccharine, quite as much so as. the vanet^,p cane cultivated at the South. Whether the' juice contains the,game amount of chrystalizable sugar, remains to be tested. Should' it be found equal to ordinary cane in that respect, a new era in the agriculture of the North will be inaugurated, and an immense breadth of land be devoted to culture, as soon as, the necessary seed can be obtained , which will requir...

A celebrated artist, in one. of his ram-' bles, met- with. the most beautiful child he had;ever;seen. "I will paint the portrait of this child," he said , " and keep it for my own; for I may never look upon its like again." He painted it? and when trouble came, and ivil .passions moved his spirit to rebel, he gazed upon the likeness of the boy, and passion fled , and holier thoughts entranced his soul. Years passed away; and at length, within a prison's walls, stretched upon the floor of stone, he sees a man, stained with blood, Vith glaring eyes and hagjrard face, and with demoniac rage , cursing himself and his fellow beings , and blaspheming God, as he lay waiting for the hour of his execution. The artist transferred his likeness aJsd to canvass , and placed it opposite to the child's; How striking, hpw complete the contrast. I . The anpeLboy—the fiendish man 1 }" What must have been the feelings of the artist, when , upon inquiry, he ascertained that both the portraits he had ...

This yoke also combines the movable arm by which the bell may be raised or lowered Ju its bearing, if desired, thus increasing or diminishing the force of the blow. The recent adaptation of Iron cases, in which they mould all sizes, increases their working f*cilities, and also enhances tbeqnality of the casting: which improvements, with those of thirty years during which the establishment has been in operation, have gained for their bells an unequalled celebrity for volume of sound and quality oftone, and for ...

A happy, Christian home had for a brief period been honored by the presence of a venerable minister of Jesus Christ. During his sojourn, the wife and mother of the household had zaore than once introduced the subject of family government, in order to obtain the advice of One who was -well " qualifiedy to instruct the anexpferienced. And how the farewell -words were being spoken. 'Taking the hand of Mrs. A., Dr. S. said, "The next time I visit you, my dear madam, will probably. be some years hence; and when I come again I shall see (glancing toward the little ones, as he spoke,) what your work has been." The expression was a very forcible and impressive one, asd for a little time the young mother's eyes r were dimmed with tears. But the subsequent reflections were useful to her, and perchance a brief sketch of them may " aid some.. others in like circumstances. ' ¦ '' ...

Whether, each nightly star to count, The ancient hills he trod, Or sought the flowers by stream and fount—Alike he walked with God. The graver noon .of manhood came, The fall of carea and fears; One voice Was in ly.s heart—the same Is heard through childhood's years. Amidat fair tents and flocks and swains, O'er his green pasture sod, A sliopherd king on Eastern plains, The patriarch walked with God. And calmly, brightly, that pure life Melted from earth away; No cloud it knew, no parting strife, No sorrowful decay; He bowed him not, like all beside, Uato the spoiler's rod, • But joined at once the glorified, Where angels walk with God.

Eor the Presbyterian Banner and Advocate. Hindooism: Its Changes During tlie Last Half Century. I have often heard it remarked, not only by the Hindoos themselves, but also by Protestants, that it is impossible for them to change their long established customs, and embrace Christianity; that the universal prevalence of caste and claim upon the son, to pursue the same avocation in life as the father, will never admit of &ny radical change; that such and such were the acts and customs of their forefathers, and to deviate in the remotest from their example, the most dire calamities would inevitably follow. But such a view of the case is not only unwarranted, but untenable. Protestants who have thus represented the matter, are certainly either unacquainted with the facts, or else they belong to that class who know nothing of the promises of the Bible, and are opposed to the spread of the glorious Gospel of God's.Son. That Hindooism has undergone the most wonderful changes ...

For tbe Presbyterian Banner and Advocate. A few plain Letters to a Young Friend, just entered on the Ministry. NO. I. The subject of the letter I now address to you, is rather an unusual one. If you do not think it*of grave importance now, you will, should you live as long as I have. From some allusions made by you in our conversation a day or two before your installation, I infer you will not long remain a single man. I do not suppose, however, that you have already made choice of a companion. Your determination, however, is to do so, as soon as "the way is clear." Now, it is about this matter I address you. You have frequently told me that you most earnestly solicited my counsel, in any way I thought would promote your interests. Will you permit me then, to say to you, that on her, to whom you may join your earthly destiny, will depend in a very great degree, your usefulness as a minister. To a man who was mourning the death of a wife, and saying, "she was the half of'tue ...
