— m ^ w m w Eev. A. B. Brown, D. ' .D. It will be remembered that the Trustees of Jefferson College, Pa., at the last Annual Commencement, accepted the resignation of this gentleman %s President of that institution. This was done because of his earnest and repeated solicitations on account of impaired health j though he will continue to discharge the duties of President until a successor is secured. From our last issue it will be seen that he has been elected one of the Professors in the new Seminary for the North-West. Dr. Brown was, for several years, a pastor in the State of Michigan, and is well acquainted with the wants of the West, and the kind of ministry demanded; while his learning, talents, pnlpit abilities, and Ms long employment as a successful instructor of youth and President of a large and flourishing College, qualify him admirably for the post to which he has been called. But we presume the friends of Jefferson College will not permit his removal from their midst...

Another Romish School. The " Glen Hotel," erected a few years ago by a company of Pittsburgh gentlemen fora place of Summer resort, on the bank of the Monongahela, a short distance above the city, has been lately purchased by Bishop O'Connor. It is understood to be the intention of the purchaser to establish a boarding school for boys in that place. The building contains some sixty rooms, and with slight alterations will be well suited t for the .purpose now proposed. This prelate seems ever on the alert to advance the in terests of Romanism, especially in the work of educating the young. It was reported last Summer that this same Bishop offered a large sum for the building e'rected some time ago at Cresson, near the summit of the Allegheny Mountains, by Dr. Jackson, for ahotel and " Sanatarium," that it might be devoted to Romish education. The efforts of the friends of Rome in this direction, should stimulate all true Protestants to renewed exertions in establishing and suppor...

Revival.—Twenty-five young ladies, pu p ils in the Springfield Female Seminary, O., have recently united in the communion of the Church. Rev. Jerome Twitchell.—The memory of this brother, who was lost in the unfortunate Natttilus, seems to be very pre. cious to the people of his former charge in New Orleans. On a late Sabbath afternoon the Rev. N. S. North preached an appropriate funeral discourse, when the house could not contain the crowd that assembled.

Dr. Hodge's Essays and Reviews,* The leading thinkers of the age, both in the purely literary and scientific , as well as in the theological world, have long been accustomed to avail themselves of the medium of Reviews for the promulgation of their sentiments and the refutation of opponents. The Newspaper, the Magazine , and the Review has each its distinct and clearl y de- j fined position. Talented though the conductor of the Newspaper may be, and with his mind abundantly stored with the facts of science, still the productions of his pen j must be the result of great haste in prepa- j ration. He aims at a certain result , and he I must reach his object as directly as possible, j and in sentences as few as. may be, for he '¦ ¦ has the transactions of the world demanding I an entry in his journal. Less varied and less popular than the Newspaper, but still more varied than the Review, the Magazine occupies an intermediate position. Like the | Review proper, the Magazine may c...

" Notwithstanding the rather high price of admission," (these theatricals always eost the curious English who go to them a rather smart sum,) " the church veas crowded iu every part." A grand procession came off first; then High Mass j next a sermoo by the cardinal, on the text, " What is man, that thou art mindful of him," &c , showing that man's superiority over the lower animals, his civilization, his mastery over the elements, his scientific! discoveries—were all to be ascribed to God. But out at last came the Jesuit application. It is " the Church " that thus glorifies God. *' She goes into the quarry, and brings forth the stone, which she moulds into beautiful forms, for the service of the TabernaeJe. She brings from the distant East the fragrant gums for a sweet smelling incense ," (for the plas phemous usurpation, w...

¦ <•••>' ¦ • Washington Correspondence. Washington, Nov. 29, 1856. Congress will assemble on Monday, with the prospect of a good attendance in both branches. The arrival of members thus far, has been unusually limited, owing to the fact, that the House is already organized, po far as the election of Speaker is concerned. The Standing Committees are usually re-appointed, with such changes only as resignations, or other causes, may require. And as all serious attempts at legislation are ordinarily deferred until after the holidays, there was no such urgency as attends the opening of a new Congress; when honors are to be distributed, and every rote has its specific importance. It is yet somewhat doubtful whether the President's Message will be communicated to Congress on Monday, or upon Tuesday. In order to guard against the mutilation winch too often occurs in the transmission by telegraph, the President has dispatched this document by special messengers, to all th...

Jforeip jnttlpa In our last, ire gave a brief statement of the news by the Persia. We now present , more fully, some matters of interest. Ci^>akers, or perhaps, as they would claim to themselves, persons of deeper insight than their fellows, speak of a rupture between France and England as being near, and of serious complications, and varied alliances, and probable war. Those, however, who really ought to know best, speak more hopefully. In regard to the great matter, the alliance between England and Franee, the London Globe (Ministerial) says; The alliance between the Emperor Napoleon and Her . Majesty Queen Victoria, is as cordial and close as it ever has been at any hour since it was first established. Moreover, the alliance has been unbroken, and has at no time been interrupted, or even impaired. We have persevered in that statement throughout. We did so whea all our contemporaries were against us; and when even the course of events appeared to cast a doubt upon...

The Chcbobc-tAMD 'Slavery. By Albert Barnes. 12mo., pp. 196. Philadelphia: Parry # Mc-Millan. ,4857. There is very much in this book from which •wedo not dissent. The testimony of the Presbyterian Church on the subject of Slavery in 1818, is inherited by the Old School Body, and from that testimony it has never departed. So far then as Mr. Barnes can logically and fairly extend the legitimate influence of that testimony, we are willing to accompany him. One object of the voluine before us seems to be an attempt to demonstrate to the world that the < New School Body has been more faithful, more honest and more successful in contending against the evils of the system of bondage which exists in the Southern S...
