[ADVERTISEMENT.] A Good Comparison. The Eev. William Boulett, a well-known Methodist clergyman, residing at Naples, draws the following amusing but apt comparison between Dr. M'Lane's celebrated Vermifuge and a ferret: "Aferret, when placed at the entrance of a rat-hole, enters the aperture, travels along the passage, seizes upon the rat, exterminates his existence, and draws the animal's defunct carcass to the light. And in like manner have I found Dr. M'Lane's American Vermifuge to operate upon worms, those dreadful and dangerous tormentors of children. This remedy, like the ferret, enters the aperture of the mouth, travels down the gullet, hunts round the stomach, lays hold of the worms, shakes the life out of the reptiles, sweeps clean their den, and carries their carcesses clear out of the system. This, at least, has been the effect of the Vermifuge upon my children." A neighbor of Mr. Boulett, Mr. John BriggSj adopts the simile of the reverend certifier; thug both giving t...

few weeks since with $m % Jfoiims , i A Model for Mothers. A , I was traveling a gentleman, on an outside car, through the County of Wexford. The day was delightful, and the geniality of the weather seemed to have expanded our hearts by its influence} for we soon became as friendly as though we had known each other for years. He was, I think, traveling for some house, and was a thorough Englishman, to judge by his appearance and conversation, though, from what he said, thirty years' residence in the Emerald Isle had imbued him with an honest admiration of the Irish character. Me was perhaps fifty years of age, was married, and the lather of several children. He said he disliked traveling, and. avoided it as much as possible. I asked him the reason, and here lay the secret. He possessed in his wife a great treasure—not only because she loved and respected her husband, but chiefly from the exemplary manner in which she brought up her young family. In the course of conversation h...

At evening time let there be light; Stormy and dark has been my day; Yet rose the morn benignly bright, Dews, buds, and flowers cheer'd all the way; Oh for one sweet, one parting ray! At evening time let there be light. At evening time tbere shall be light; For God hath said, " So let it be!" Fear, doubt, and anguish, take their flight, His glory now is risen on me; Thine eyes shall his salvation see—'Tis evening time, and there it light. Montgomery.

JgrknltoaL Dietetic Economies. As Winter is approaching with its pinebings of the poor, ifc may be well for many to study, what articles of food are the most nutritious and cheapest ; that is, what kinds of food will go farthest for the least money. Not a few in our large cities lay the foundation of incurable and fatal diseases, by being stinted in their food, and who would not have been stinted, had they expended what thehad the most money y m judicious manner. The ignorance and inconsiderateness of the poor is sometimes amazing. The ladies of the Widows' Aid Society, who do so much for humanity every Winter, have found it expedient to refuse giving money to any of their beneficiaries, but ascertain their actual wants, and give them orders for such articles of food as are deemed best. They found that when money was given, it would be expended for tea and coffee, and fine flour for the luxuries instead of the necessaries of life. We trust the following table may be of pract...

QgVV ? ... . ix 1111 flFn'l ftlWfttttt The Progress or our Country.—It is stated that the population of the eleven infant colonies In 1701 was 262,000 souls. Geprgia and Delaware were added to the number about 174% and the census reporte j d\re us 1,046,000. In the year 1775, the thirteen colonies had 2,303,000 whites, and 500 000 slaves. After the adoption of the present Constitution, in 1790, tbere were thirteen States, with 3,172,654 white, and 50,456 free colored, and 697,807 slaves. ln ' l850, the States had increased to thirtyone, and the population to 19,550,000 whites, 434,000 free colored, and 2,204,000 slaves. The total population at this time is approaching thirty millions. Wealth.—The less you leave your children when you die, the more they will have twenty vear3 afterward.

The subjects of these addresses were Promiscuous Dancing and Parental Obligation, The latter has not, been put into the bands of the Committee by its author; the former has been much abridged, and the Committee respectfully solicit its appearancf in the Banner and Advocate, and pray that its wide dissemination and perusal may be a means, through the Divine blessing, to counteract the evil alluded to in the address.

An Infallible Cure for a Bad Memory. A young wpman, -who was converted to Jesus under the ministry of .a beloved friend of ours, called upon us the other day about a matter that was near her heart—the spiritual welfare of a dear relative. She spoke of the sermons she had heard my friend deliver nearly a year ago, and saidu they came to her remembrance sometime! even more fresh and precious than when she heard them." I had heard that she had a good memory, and that she might be seen at times, on Monday, at meal hours', in the factory, with a group of girls around her, repeating to them the sermons she had heard on the previous Sabbath; and I said to her, "You have a good memory, I believe?" She replied, "I cannot complain of my memory; it might be better, but I am thankful for it as it is." - "It is a greafc matter," said I, "to have a good memory for spiritual things: some people's memories are like a sieve; they let the( water of life' very readily and swiftly through, but fait...

Punctuality. A singular mischanee has occurred to some of our. friends. At the instant when he ushered them on existence, God gave them a work to do, and he also gave them a competency of time; so much time, that if they began at the right moment, and wrought with suflicient vigoij their time and their work would end together. But a good many yeais ago, a strange mischance befell them. A fragment of their allotted time was lost. They cannot tell what became of it; but sure enough it has dropped out of existence; for just like two measuring-lines laid alongside, the one an inch shorter than the other; their work and their time run parallel, but the work is always ten minutes behind the time. They are not irregular. They are never too soon. Their* letters are posted the very minute after the mail is shut; they arrive at the wharf just in time to see the steamboat off; they come in sight of the depot precisely when the train starts. They* dp not break any engagements, nor neglect any...

As she drew near the close of life, and was aware that her opportunities for doing good would soon be over, she said to this kind friend, "Doctor, you have been very faithful to nie, visiting me at ail seasons, and in all kinds of weather, with no prospect of any return; and now I feel that I must be faithful to you.

Mot the Presbyterian Ben nor and Advocate. Glorifying God. Man's chief end is defined by our Catechism to be "to glorify God and to enjoy him forever/* Almost any child can readily answer this question. But does not the conduct of many (some, too, advanced in life,) show that they mistake their chief end? Alas, how few apparently make it their chief end to glorify,God ! Would we not rather conclude , from the conduct of many, that their chief end was to obtain wealth, honor, fame, pleasure, &c. ? The glory of God seems to be altogether forgotten in the ardent pursuit of these shadows; yea, the Scriptures tell us, "God is not in all their thoughts!" But let not Christians foTget their chief end. Are we, who profess to have taken God for our portion, "glorifying him?" Are our lives and actions plainly different from those who make the world their chief object of attainment ? v The worldly expect us to be different from them, and if we are, in any measure, answering the desig...

The Independents of IT. C, and the Bethel Presbytery. Two weeks ago, in noticing the proposed union of the " Independent Presbyterians " (the followers of Rev. Win. 0. Davis,) with the General Assembly, through the medium of the Presbytery of Bethel, we stated that "the Independents now profess not to hold the form of error promulgated by Mr. Davis." On this the American Presbyterian remarks : "The Banner makes a great mistake as to fact j for we do not believe that its Editor—whose course is always honorable, even amidst strong prejudices—would intentionally misrepresent." We certainly did not mean to misrepresent. There could not be the slightest motive for so doing. We are utterly opposed to uniting, ecclesiastically, with any who are not- sound in the faith, and heartily with us in desire and in their views of Church order. A union on any other terms would be an increase of numbers at the expense of vigor, and to the marring of our peace. Let those, and those only, attempt d...

Ecclesiastical. Rev. William M. Paxton, as we learn with p leasure, has declined the call to Baltimore. Kev. Joseph Wabren, D. D., is to be addressed at Greensburg, Ind. The notice to address him in Pittsburgh, which appeared in our paper two weeks ago, was a mistake. Kev. Recjbef Lewis was installed pastor of the church at Fairmont, Va., by a Committee of the Presbytery of Redstone, on the 14th of November. The Rev.H. W. Biggs preached the sermon from Jeremiah vi: 16. The Rev. H. 0. Hosborougb presided and gave the change to the pastor, and the Rev. William Eaton gave the charge to the people. Mr. Lewis' Post Office address is Fairmont, Va. Rev. John M.
