Annals of the American Pulpit.* The Christian public have been aware, for a length of time past, that the Rev. Dr. Sprague, of Albany, has been industriously engaged in preparing a work, of a comprehensive charactar, in which a full and faithful portraiture should be given of the most remarkable American Divines. Two volumes of this vast undertaking are now before us, containing some three hundred and forty-six biographies, and occupying above fifteen hundred and fifty pages. Our readers will perceive that this great literary achievement is a work requiring no ordinary amount of labor; and this conviction will be deepened, when the character of the work, and the sources from which it has been derived, come to be known. These two volumes are entirely occupied with the memoirs of Trinitarian Congregaiionalists ; and when it is considered that relatives and friends had to be consulted, for information respecting facts which were treasured, or rather hidden away in old family papers, ...

Obituaries. There seems to be a very general effort on the part of the religious press to abbreviate obituary notices. This proceeds not from acv neeuliar hardness nf >i«arfc in +Jia fraternity. They are as sympathizing as any other class of people. They would do as much as any others, to mitigate the sorrows of the bereaved living, and to perpetuate the fame of the worthy dead. They axe influenced by two considerations , which their position enables them more fully to appreciate. They wish to fill their reading columns only with that which is instructive j and they desire to be relieved from perpetual complainings on the part of their readers about the length of those notices. What shall they do ? To refuse obituary notices utterly, would seem very ungracious, and very wrong; and to affix a limit to the length would be very difficult. The secular press, generally, takes an effective measure, of tolerably easy application, to procure relief—it will insert so far as paid f...

The *' Morning Star." This is the name of a missionary ship, buOt by the A. B. 0. F. M., at Chelsea, and recently launched. She is a vessel of one hundred and fifty tons, and constructed for swift sailing. Her cost was $12,000, which the children in Sabbath Schools are engaged in raising. She will shortly sail for the Pacific Ocean, and will carry out Mr. Bingham, with his wife, son of our former missionary Bingham, at the Sandwich Islands, to the new Mission of the Board in Micronesia. Her captain and both mates are religious men. From three to four thousand people were at the launch. The Puritan Recorder describes the occasion as being one of much interest.

Thanksgiving. Thursday, the 20th inst., was observed in our city, very generally: There was, extensively, a cessation from ordinary labor. Stores, shops, and factories, were closed. The day was pleasant, and thousands turned out, clad in their best robes, and with happy countenances. Many of the churches were opened, and were well filled. We heard one excellent sermon; and heard of others, above the common, order, having been preached. A day thus spent, in gratefully contemplating the rich blessings we enjoy, religious and secular, personal and national ; our giving of thanks being accompanied with instruction and prayer; cannot but be an appropriate service to God, and highly beneficial to the people.

Bev. William Heill, D. D. This venerated clergyman delivered, in the Sixth Church, Philadelphia, on the evening of the 15thinst., a discourse commemorative of his fifty years1 services in the ministry. The occasion is spoken of as impressive, instructive, and encouraging. We give, from the Presbyterian, a brief account of the Doctor's fields of labor : " Cooperstown, New York, which the preacher graphically depicted as a retire! village, embosomed among romantic hills, and washed by a beautiful lake, was the scene of his firft youthful labors as an ambassador for God. Through the many changes which have since intervened, it was easy to be seen that this quiet scene of early pastoral experience loomed up as a bright spot in the past. This quiet retreat, after a few years, he exchanged for the pastoral charge of the First Church, Albany, now Rev. Dr. Campbell's, which city then contained a population of 9000; it now numbers about 60, 000. During his career here, a second church wa...

Oregon. The settling of this Territory with a hardy and enterprising population, is progressing ; though, it is being accomplished in the midst of many difficulties. But it is not so very long since similar hardships were endured, even in this now improved, luxuriant and happy Western Pennsylvania. Many of us can remember the narrations, by our fathers, of the horse-path and the pack-saddle, by which salt, groceries, dry goods, and even the needful iron implements of husbandry and building were transported over "the Alleghenies "; and the accounts of Indian ambushes, and pillages, and battles, and murd »s and escapes. Well, very much what our sires, or grand-sires endured, is the portion of our brethren at present in Oregon. And, as regards the settlers in that "far West," we are pleased to learn that, like our and their ancestors in this region, they have among them a few devoted and laborious ministers—men who delight to preach, and toil, and endure hardness , and attend ecclesi...

Eastern Correspondence. Thanksgiving Day — Reformatory Measures for Children — Industrial Schools — Boys' Sunday Meetings—Lodging and Reading Rooms for JVews-Boys — Other Benevolent Measures — Help Due. New Yoek, Nov. 22, 1856. Me. Editor '.—Thanksgiving has been observed among us this year with much zest and unanimity; though not in the same manner by different classes. Public excursions and entertainments were alternated with domestic rejoicings and religious services. Banks and stores were closed " down town,'* and churches of the various denominations were generally opened, but military and fire companies, with bands of music, paraded the streets, and workmen upon buildings "up town" continued their labors. As the Crovernor invited all " good citizens," in distinction from all good Christians, to respect the day, the Jews this year participated in its observance, by public service in their synagogues; but as Romanists know no holidays except those* appointed by their Church, f...

is cominc into tlie market with a proposition ¦which ¦will involve an expenditure of forty millions .«*terliug ! The Credit Mvhilier , of France, is about to make a railway in Spain; anil thus, " two colossal companies are scouring Kuropo for money, and the universe for investments." The Sultan, also,wants eight w ill ions sft> r?infff for an Ottoman Bank, and «, •/> millions more for the Euphrates Railway Company! The Times expects that " our poor countrymen will do as they desire," and seems to feel Cassandra-like, that its warning will be vain. This disturbance of the money market , which probably will continue for a long time, must affect the United States, also, and suggests to the Christian thinker many lessons, in connexion with the rampant spirit of covetousness and fraud, which are abroad at the present day. In truth, France and its ruler, with his courtiers, are believed to have sinned grievously in this matter. The following, in one of our papers, will sug...
