_#afHl_^t_^_lt«:_^ For the American Presbyterian HOW TO DIE. B would be a grievous neglecting of some of God's best helpings to out souls, did we, because we have a Book of _Ghraeej tteglect to _rearl occasionally in the book of natoe* When our Lord said to the Jews of his day :— 11 Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky, and of the earth, but how id it that ye do not discern this time?" he did not mean to condemn their attentive observation of _material things, but only that this accuracy of discernment was not extended to the great spiritual processes which were then going on under God's superintendence. And it was the continual practice of Him, wbo was not only the Saviour, but the teacher of mankind, to-bid his followers lbofk dufc upon the evervarying surfaces of earth, and,'sea, and sky, with all their living furniture, and 1 take a lesson from the survey, t_^et us not omit to follow this prac tice.

For the American Presbyterian. fHi sumieb rania breeze. BT JAMES _RISTINE. Where is thy home, oh fairy wanderer? Where are the halls wherein ye sleep . When peace broods in the solitary wood, And spreads her pinions o ' er the deep? When summer's noon is passed, and a hot breath Is steaming from the marsh and plain, How soft thy cooling wings play ' round the brow, Ere revelling in the briny waves again t Go, gentle breeze 1 Go, waft the bark along The bosom of the glassy lake That lifts its _liquid lips to kiss thine own, Aud unto thee sweet music speak. Go, fan the _laborer's fevered cheek, as now, The busy task complete, he plods With weary step along yon winding path, And sweeps the soft dew gathered on the sod. Long hours beneath the scorching sun he swayed The sickle in the ripened grain, Pouring the dew of labor o ' er his brow, _Vnniiadful Of the toil or pain; But-thouy&Weetr spirit of the gelid breeze, Came from the depth of yonder grove, And kissed the moist...

A BEAUTIFUL INCIDENT. _ There is something suggestive as well as beautiful in the following incident. It reminds us of those who sing the siren, song of pleasure while the voyage of life is about to terminate. When the ship South Seamen struck on the French Frigate Shoal, two little canaries which the captain had hanging in his cabin, were awakened by the noise, and regardless of the confusion around them, commenced singing some of- their inimitable sougs_, though it was hardly daybreak. The little songster continued to sing with untiring zeal " The sweetest songs ear ever heard,11 during all the time that the sailors were getting ready to leave the vessel, as if to cheer them up in their disheartening situation. The. officers were forced to leave the birds on the wreck, as they were unable to save even their own clothing, and these cheerful little songsters remained, singing to themselves the requiem of the gallant ship. ' ( i • »» _, Sorrow comes soon enough without despom...

EBlTOB'_fc TABLE. HISTORY OF THE _PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH IN _MRESf _Condensed from the Standard Work of Reid & Ellen. By Rev- Saw** »• _Alexander. _sHw York: Robert Carter_^_Tferotbers.

Of the eight million inhabitants of the Emerald Isle, only _$bout _^one-fifth, sp _Protestants, and of these ' , above one-half are supposed to be Presbyterians. The _Information met with decided obstacles in Ireland, and never prevailed to any great extent, save in one-or _foo counties in the North. The superiority AHhe Protestant religion is illustrated by the fact that the most unfertile and naturally intractable part of the island has been made more productive and valuable than the South, with all its natural advantage* of soil and climate overborne by the deadly blight of the Roman Catholic religion. "Ulster has always _beetfthe great centre of Presbyterianism: and it is remarkable that this is the locality where the late revival ha...

THE LATE EEV. _GEOBGE _CHAHDLER_, A.M. The exit of this excellent minister of Christ leaves a large vacation in all the Ticinities so long and so well attached to his influence. Let me then say a word in memotiamheatam, concerning one, whom I have known and esteemed, longer than aby of you; whd itf tliat great city survive and lament him. I was present, and well remember, at his ordination, the ..ye_#r _^ befo.re. ,.X_«_enteTeJ the ministry; and about two years previous to that, i.e., 1813,1 think, I first became acquainted with him; heard him preach the gospel of Christ so faithfully, and felt to him that attachment, as a man of God, which no moment of the interval has at all impaired. This beginning of our acquaintance was in the city of Newark, N. J., before he ever saw Philadelphia_^ _,A.t that, time his future was to all of us, as to Mm, only a dark problem. We now see it was written in the book of Providence, from all eternity, that he should be a fixed and truthful star...

THE CHRISTIAN LIFE THE SAFEST TEST OF 0ETH0B0XY. True religion is a life; not a theory of life; not a philosophy of life, nor a mere collection of precepts and rules by which human conduct is to be controlled) but a life-giving and energizing principle working in us and through us, to the accomplishment of the end of our being. A religion of mere forms or dead formulas, is as useless as it is common. A defective life is really a more pernioious heresy than a defective creed. When the heart is right it is more easy and hopeful work to rectify the head. Jf any man will do the will of God, said the great teacher, he shall know of the doctrine. Example is better than theory. - A heart and sound Christian life are the best practical tests of the correctness of our creed. There is a universal tendency to speculation, and to theorize and dispute about religion, and wrestle with difficulties, with no corresponding tendency to practise its plain and obvious teachings. That ancient fa...

STANDARD OF GIVING. FOREIGN MISSIONS. On looking over your paper of the 9th inst., I noticed four articles headed as follows: "American Board," "Response," "Dr. Tyng and Foreign Missions," "Church Offerings, for Foreig n Missions for 1859." On the same day, in another paper, I read an article headed "Generosity of the Irish Servant Girls." The substance of the first article was that the American Board has been in existence fifty years, that more than fifty thousand hopeful converts have been gathered into the churches connected with the different missions; that it has now under its care about 400 male and female missionaries, and nearly 500 native helpers; the lowest estimate of the expense of >the present year being 8370,000, which, added to the debt, will make the sum of $438,000, to meet which the amount received during the first five months was§ 37,464, leaving a total of $358,536, as needed for the remaining seven months. The second article stated that the church o...

HYMNS FOB CHILDBEN, Under the heading " Hymns fob Children," the Presbyterian of last week has a communication from *' H. H," whom we doubtless rightly interpret as Mr. Horace Holden of New York. The suggestions of the article are important, practical, sensible; they are worthy of note. The question of hymns for the young comes in importance hard after the question of Bible instruction. The hi g h sensibility of the mind of childhood to moral impressions is never so manifest as when those impressions are made through poetry and music. Poetry has a power to attract and retain the attention of children far beyond prose; it is earlier learned, longer remembered, and oftener recalled. Every one who has had the, trai _l ing of the young appreciates the importance off the question—" What hymns shall our children he taught?" The answer should not be given without thought, not the selection left to the thoughtless. Says Mr. H.: " Many are strongly in favor of a class of hymns peculi...

BALTIM0EE. The most desirable part of the city of Baltimore is nobly seated on-a hill, from a commanding site of which rises a simple_^ Doric column, built of white marble, 140 feet high, and' crowned with a colossal statue of the Father of our Country-Washington. . This purej white shaft, rising in the midst of wide avenues and lordly mansions, interspersed wiiK churches of corresponding magnificence, keeps its place in the memory of the beholder, imparting to his reminiscences of the city some of its own simple sweetness and majesty. Like this lonely column, stands the sole repi-esentative of constitutional Presbyterianism among the churches of the city j alone and singular, yet complete in itself, of true and tried material, well organized, not built of idead substances, like the nionument, but of lively stones, the living Christ himself being the chief corner-stone; in m whom alt the building, fitly framed together, groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord. , The very abs...

CHURCH EXTENSION—NEW APPOINTMENTS, &c The Church Extension Committee, at their recent meeting, commissioned the Bev. A. G. Mab-TIN for Cairo, Illinois. It is especially interesting that a number of gentlemen at that place, with assistance received from some of the neighboring churches, particularly at Alton, built a house of worship before any church was organized. Cairo, as is known, is at the confluence j»f the Ohio and Mississippi rivers. It is a!_$_& the terminus of the Illinois Central .Railroad _^ _fevenuhundred miles long, said to be the longest _^ _railroad in the world. Mr. Martin has been laboring faithfull y for a year past, with but little assistance. The prospect for a self-supporting church there, ere long, is good. The Committee also appointed the Rev. N. Barrett missionary at Mendota, Illinois. This is a growing town of some 2,500 inhabitants. Mr. Barrett has labored there amongst great difficulties, arising from want of a proper salary. He ha...

TEE _TTinON PRAYER-MEETING OF OUR ' CHURCHES. - This meeting has grown into the affection of our people, until it is regarded by very many as at once a necessity and a privilege. For ourselves, we hope it will be among theu permanent institutions" of our Church. It is wellcalculated to draw the members together _^ and to promote that Christian sympathy the _value of which, to individual character, and to the Church at large, it is impossible to over-estimate. The meeting at Kensington _Churjch, of Jast week_^was well attended, _,and representatives from*ch1|iahe8 in-remote parts * of the city were present in considerable numbers. The recent affliction of thechurch in the loss of their pastor, for which the building was tastefully draped in mourning, and_^_heM eep religious interest now prevailing in the congregation, gave peculiar solemnity to the occasion. It was stated by Rev. Mr. Brown, who conductedthe exercises, that 34 or 35 persons had _protested a hope in Christ, as ...

Death of Rev. Dr. Jilud.—We learn that the Rev. Gideon N. Judd. D. D., pastor of the Presbyterian church at Montgomery, Orange Co., N. Y., died at that place on Saturday _Jast, March 3d. He had reached his 71st year. Dr. Judd was formerly settled at Catskill, N. Y., and subsequently at Bloomfield, N. J., where his labors were eminently blessed in the conversion of souls, and where lie exerted a great and happy influence over the minds of a large number of youth who were looking forward to the gospel ministry. Wherever known, he was regarded as eminently a man of God, a meek, faithful and devoted servant of Christ. Among his brethren he was esteemed as an excellent preacher, and a wise counsellor—one to whose careful judgment all deferred with great respect_. Rev.

Jf»w» ef tilt Wwh Mr. _Brownson is warning his Catholic brethren in his Beview, that "the Church" must decline in this country, and dwindle into insignificance, unless it can attain a greater intellectual power. He. says that the Church is not growing by conversions half.as rapidly as it is. diminishing by perverts; that ifcT cannot hope to maintain its ground by immigration from abroad; and that very soon some of its great cathedrals will be without congregations. He says the Catholics must humble the Protestant pride of intellect is this county* by proving themselves superior.. ' And of this he sees but little present hope, as the intellectuality of the Catholics of America is now so near zero, that , among all their hundreds of thousands, no work of any merit from the best Papal pens can command more than 2000 or 2500 sales of copies. Judge Taney, who has been so long ill, is gaining strength every day, and will, it is hoped, be able to resume _his seat on the Bench of-the ...
