JisteiaL Macaulay and the Scotch.. The history of Scotland, and the reputation of Presbyteriamsm, are so intimately connected, that members of our Church ) must ever take a deep interest in having the i events of the last three hundred years, t which occurred in the North of Great Britain, ' fairly represented. - Macaulay, the historian, with all his bril-: liant powers as a writer, has shown himself $ deeply inimical to orthodoxy, and to that \ deep devotion and religious strictness whieh belong to the faith of our Church. i Amongst others who have noticed this, and have corrected his misrepresentations, and repelled Ms assaults, is Blackwood's Magazine. In the number of this work for September, is an able article. Scotland contended with England long and nobly for a proper independence, and her people were invincibly dttermined to form their Kirk after their own fashion—ihat is, as they were taught in Scripture. , Nothing short of this would satisfy her ministers and her people....

Good Sxde for Editors, There is, perhaps, no class of our public servants who have more difficulties, to contend with, than the editors of our newspapers. Mr. A. finds too much news in his paper. Mr. B. does not ind enough. Mr. 0. . expects more original matter. Mr. D. prefers selections. Mr. E has a hobby, and expects the editor to agree with him perfectly. Mr. • F. has a very different hobby, and is offended if the editor does not play largely upon his string. And Mr. Gy and all the rest have some mission or other—some Booriboola-gha-—and expect of course that the editor should say a great deal in favor of, and nothing against their favorite schemes. ¦;¦¦ . -. •-. . -. .;: . .. ¦;¦-. . ¦ -. _. ¦ .¦;, ¦- . , • !

An Encouraging Incident. In the preaching of the Gospel and the exercise of the pastoral care, there are many j things to discourage the heart of the faith- J ful. It is painful to deliver the messages of j i salvation from year to year to persons who seem altogether unmoved by its gracious instructions and kind promises. But the anxiety is immeasurably increased when this indifference is found among the children of the pious; persons dedicated to God in baptism, before whom a holy example has been set, and who have been the subjects of many and earnest prayers. To neglect the Gospel does not seem so strange on the part of those who were not trained in Christian families, who never breathed an atmosphere of piety, and were never accustomed to anything higher than a refined worldliness, or perhaps exposed to vulgarity, vileness and wickedness. But to treat the Gospel with contempt, or to regard its claims with dissatisfaction, or to be unmoved by its doctrines, its warnings, an...

Eastern Correspondence. New York, Nov. 2U, lbob. Me. Editor :—An impressive and interesting service was held last Sabbath evening in connexion with the installation of the Rev. Dr. M'Cartee, over the " Westminster church," Twenty-second Street. A very large audience crowded the spacious edifice, many of them personal friends or former parishioners of Dr. M'Cartee, who resumes ais ministry in this city, after an absence of twenty-one years. Rev. Dr. Krebs preached an able and timely sermon on " Church Extension," which deserves to be published and widely circulated ; while the u charges to the pastor and the people," by Eev. Drs. Phillips and Potts, respectively, were lucid exhibitionb of the duties they enforced. The interest of the occasion, however, was greatly heig htened by the history and circumstances of the church itself. It was gathered, and the building it now occupies, was erected; under the ministry of the late Rev. John Little, whose early death seemed an almost fa...
