—¦ ¦ «¦* • * » . * From the Dae West Telescope. Southern Thoughts on the Instruction of Hegroes. It is pleasing to sec one and another of the great and good among the true friends of the South, and of the negroes in the South, taking large, Christian views of our obligations to the African in our midst. * * * At any rate, our servants are not only our property; they are members of our households, they are the companions of our children, as well as the tillers of our soil; and we ought to stan'J by them, defend them, improve them, make them happy and useful, and fit them as best we can, for happiness and glovy hereafter. * * * We are glad to fiod that such a feeling is growing in the South: And we hope the day is not far distant when those laws against allowing slaves to be taught to read, shall be bloited from, our Statutes. They are admitted to be a dead letter. Then why retain them? If they do us no good they arm our foes, and thus do us an injury. •Mr. Yeadon, who has long ...

Synod of Northern Indiana. The Synod of Northern Indiana met in €rawfordsville on. Thursday, October 16th, 1856, and was opened with a sermon by the Moderator, from Matt, xxviii: 20: " Lo, I am with you alway, even to the end of the world." Rev. Jonathan Edwards, D. D., was elected Moderator, and W. Y.Allen and Levi Hughes, Clerks. Although the weather was delightful, the health of the country unusually good, and the place accessible by railroad, the attendance was not large, there being an unusually small number of Euling Elders present. The subject of securing a fuller attendance was discussed, and Rev. J. 0. Brown was appointed to address a letter to the churches, urging them to send representatives. It is hoped this may have the desired effect, and that at our next meeting, we will have a full representation. Eev. Dr. Happersett addressed Synod, presenting the claims of the Board of Missions, and the following resolutions were adopted: Resolved, That Synod have heard with ...

The Committee on Bills and Overtures, and the Judicial Committee, both reported, near the close of the meeting, that no business had been put into their hands. The attention of Synod was occupied principally with the consideration of the question of a Synodical College. On this subject, an interesting discussion took place, relating chiefly to the location of said College. Three places were before Synod, with definite proposals—Chillicothe, West L...

Let go all the Anchors. There are some very good people who will not sustain this or that benevolent enterprise of the Church, because they regard it as less important than some others. They will not do anything for Foreign Missions, because they think our own country should first be evangelized. They will not sustain Church Extension, because they deem the education of the ministry a paramount duty. They withhold support from the superannuated servants of God, because they imagine it will do more good to scatter abroad tracts; , and books.,. r,,?« . ^ " : " iiri«iaBHp i h<.Q1hi,T^tians^mojaldidoj^U.to4mitate the skillful marineiTwh ose^ff^fn^cefc winds are dashing on a lee-shore.

Allegheny Seminary—A Fourth Professor. The churches have seen, with great pleasure, we trust, that the resolution has been taken by the Directors of the Western Theological Seminary, to endow a Fourth Professorship, and to ask the next General Assembly that the Chair shall be filled. The judgment of the Church was clearly indicated, last Spring, by the unanimity and cordiality with which the Assembly entered into the election of a Professor. The declinature of Dr. Dickinson leaves the Institution with only its former force, but leaves it to feel, from disappointed hopes, its wants the more keenly. The movement now commenced, to secure an endowment before calling an occupant, is wise} and, through the favor of the churches, will, we trust, be altogether practicable. Let the work be prosecuted with vigor, and the responses be prompt and liberal. It is earnestly desired that the Directors, when approaching the Assembly with the request for an appointment, shall be able to say tha...

|tetos §tprtuuttt The Election, The papers still abound with election news; but the returns are yet imperfect. No doubt remains as to the result. Mr. Buchanan is clearly elected. He has all the Southern States but Maryland. In the North he has Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Indiana and Illinois. In the latter State, the Republicans and Americans run separate Presidential tickets, and were defeated. For Governor and other State officers, they united, and were, it seems, successful. Dreadful Collision, A vessel, name unknown, came in contact with the French steamer Lyonnais, at sea, in a fog, on the2dinst* The Lyonnais' had sailed from New York for Havre, on the 1st, with passengers and crew numbering one hundred and fifty.

The vessel which struck the Lyonnais is supposed to have perishe...

Jforeip Intelligence ? The affairs of Europe, as appears from late arrivals, are becoming somewhat complicated. An alliance between France and Russia is plainly talked of, and a counter alliance between England and Austria. The experience of the last two years, however, has taught the nations that a Diplomatic warfare is the better policy, as being far less expensive of blood and treasure, than an appeal to arms. The great powers are not likely soon, to unsheath the sword against each other. Papers which profess, to speak by authority, utter some things that intimate dissatisfaction, but, for the most part, they are more pacific than others. Great Britain* The London Times' Paris correspondent says: "Whether well founded or not, the opinion is very general, that not only does there exist a serious difference between France and Fngland, on more than one point, but also that the latter has been completely reconciled to Austria, and that the former is now on more than friendly te...
