THE SYNOD OF PITTSBURGH This being the Synod to which we owe Bpeeial allegiance, and in wVieh we have just passed a lew days of delightful Christian fellowship, we will give to it a portion of an editorial column. The meeting was held last week, at the beautiful town of Kittanning, on the Allegheny River, forty-five miles above Pittsburgh. Kittanning is the capital of Armstrong County, and the present terminus of the Allegheny Valley Eailroad. The road is intended to pass up the valley till it shall reach the Oil regions, and thenee till it shall intersect the Erie and Philadelphia road, and the roads of New-York. The attendance at Synod, of both ministers and elders, was large. Much important _business was transacted, with the greatest harmony. There were no Appeals nor Complaints, to. give annoyance and consume time. We shall briefly notice a few of the subjects which occupied the attention of the brethren. The Minutes we shall probably give to our readers next week. The...

ATTACI ON DR. GURLEI We e&py from the Pittsburgh Gazette, of the 9th inst., as follows: " In hisfast-day sermon at Washington, the Rev. Wm. H. "Changing, Unitarian, gave it as his solemn opinion that the reason why the Almighty has brought this war _trpon us is, that some of the Northern States have abolished capital punishment . " The New-York Tribune remarks that it is not impossible some clergyman may have talked thus absurdly, but Mr. Channing who is himself opposed to capital punish- ; ment,_*and is by no means a fool, never imagined anything of the sort. The Tribune is right. Though it has been copied from journal to journal, the above foolish para_« graph has only this foundation—that it ascribes to Mr. Channing the foolishness ¦of Dr.'GuRiiEY, who edified a highly distinguished auditory, including the Presi_* •dent himself, with this surprising doctrinal discovery, as was stated in more than one •or _two Washington reports at the time. " The distinguished a...

OUR DOMESTIC BOARD This Board is laboring hard to recover from its depression. And it is _labdring in hope. It has commenced the reduction of its debt to its missionaries, and hope lights up the heart of its members. Dr. Janeway, the Corresponding Secretary, addressed a letter to the Synod of Pittsburgh, setting forth the Board's urgent need. The Synod adopted the following paper in response: Domestic missionaries are the Church's agents in preaching the Gospel to the poor. Our enterprise in this line is one of the distinctive evidences that we are a true Church. It is, in our case, by no means as strong and brilliant as it should be. But we have it. And we seek its increase. We have been employing more than six hundred'men in the work; and we contemplate large, additions. There is room. There are calls,.many, loud, and earnest This Synod1 would not be deaf to them. We would.not have our Church Board'be deaf.; Neither would we have it so feeble, that it shall be obliged to h...

KEEPING CLOSE TO GOD A-child was with its father in the midst of a great crowd. The child was frightened by the noise and confusion around him. ¦" Keep close to me" said the father, extending his hand, "and you need not be afraid." We are in a world of confusion and danger, but, if we keep close to God, we nee'd not be afraid-1 —we shall be safe. • '! We shall be safe from - evil thoughts. They are very dangerous. They corrupt the soul ere it is aware. Many a man has been ruined by evil thoughts. They have gradually obtained place in and power over his mind, till the result has been open and outrageous wickedness. When we are close to God, evil thoughts do not enter our minds, or if they do, are immediately banished. A holy influence spreads over our minds which keeps evil thoughts far away. . We shall be safe from delusive thoughts . We are led astray by error. False views of life, false views of men, lead us to do many unwise acts. A great deal of defective practice is owi...

_« OUR HOLI FATHER, TIE POPE." There have appeared, in France, within the last two years, a number of pamphlets, and sundry newspaper articles, on the subjec t of the Pope, of great power and keenness. We re-produce from the Christian World, one of the latter as we find it there translated into English. It has also been translated into Italian, and extensively circulated. The revolution in Italy has given a large degree of freedom to the press. The article is thus: - 1. It is always the same story! In the street, the same as at home, in the papers, and in conversations, at the church, and at the shop, we hear of nothing but discussions relating; to our Holy Father, the Pope! All this clamor at length wearies us. Wha€ has he done, then, this poor, old, good man ? Some folly ' without doubt.

A CHRISTIAN SENTIMENT The Evangelical Alliance, composed of the representatives of Christian Churches from all parts of Europe, and from North America, at its late meeting in Geneva, Switzerland, unanimously adopted the following declaration of sentiment with regard to our civil war, and its cause: " The Conference of Christians of all countries assembled at Geneva testifies to its brethren of the United States the lively sympathy which it feels for them in the terrible crisis which desolates theii country. The members of this assembly desire to pray fervently that these deplorable events may be turned to the advancement of the interests of Humanity, of Liberty, and of the Kingdom of God. Convinced that the existence of Slavery is the. cause of the war, the Conference prays to the Lord to incline the heart of his children in America to bring about, by wise and Christian measures, the suppression of this institution, which is as contrary to the Gospel as it is to the peace, p...

_piTOEIili CORRESPONDENCE. Washington City, Oct. 12,1861. This city is now, as it has been for months, the object of great interest in our national affairs. Notwithstanding- the suceesses of our arms in Western Virginia, our reverses in Missouri, and the portentous condition of things in Kentucky, the " Federal City," as our fathers termed it, is still the place to which' all eyes are turned. It was this upon which the leaders of the great rebellion had set their hearts; to seize it was their highest ambition, and to effect this every nerve was strained, and all military skill applied. Also the disaster at Bull Run Was to be retrieved. Our national reputation'demanded this. Moreover, the stronghold of the enemy is at Manassas. The Confederacy stakes its all on this point. The operations in other places have mostly been in the guerrilla style of warfare, receiving but little attention _fronauthe traitor authorities a|! Richmond. And here are congregated the _flower of the loyal y...

Washington. The army still advances, though slowly. Gen. M'Call's division, being twelve regiments of the Pennsylvania Beserve,' has crossed the Potomac, and taken its "position at Langley, some six or eight miles from Arlington. Munson's Hill is now well fortified, and our advance is beyond it. From Alexandria, we have ; possession of . the Orange and Alexandria - ' Railroad, for eleven miles toward Manassas. There have been reports that Gen. Banks' column passed the Potomac, in the neighborhood of Harper's Ferry. These are premature, so far as regards the main body, but the indications are that they may soon_, be repeated truthfully. On the lower " Potomac our flotilla is both strong and watchful. Several of the rebel batteries, much spoken of some time ago, have either departed, or proved inefficient.. At least the navigation of the river is still unimpeded. The batteries at and near the mouth of Acquia Creek are, no doubt, strong; but the river there is wide, and vessels can...
