TROUBLES, OLD AND YOUNG. It is wonderful to notice how equally on this earth, sorrows, sufferings and pleasures are allotted to us poor mortals, each according, to his strength. The young child experiences, in proportion to its own little heart, the, same grief about a broken toy, as the man whose life's hopes have been annihilated—at the moment, at least, it feels it equally ¦ deeply. . The school boy who has not learned his lesson, frequently Btands—though his heart may be pure and innocent—with the same fears, the same beating heart, before his frowning teacher, as the grown up criminal before his judge. With our years our strength increases, but our sorrows do ' not decrease j they grow with them_. The broken toy is succeeded by the punishment of the school; the latter by the1 first parting from home; and, as we grow older, ah! then sorrows come in battalions, and we consider, each the worst with which God has chastised us, until the succeeding one teaches us that we were ...

Camphene Lamp Explosion in a Church.—At St. Thomas, Franklin county, Pa., last Sunday, as the Rev. Mr ' . McCord was _aT>_oat to commence preaching his farewelLsermon, in the Methodist Episcopal Church —the church being filled with people—a camphene lamp hanging in the aisle exploded, to the great consternation of the congregation. 'The scene that ensued was awful for a few minutes. Every person supposed that the whole house w_^s on fire. The ladies became very much frightened. Some of them fainted , and all of them screamed at the top of their voices. 'A nish was made for tbe door. In the excitement , some person, dread ing, the consequence of delay, bounced through one of the window, carrying out sash, glass , and everything else. Although for a while all thought escape frQm<death_or serious, injury would be impossible; yet ho person. Th<_£flbor of . the building ' caa ' ght fire, but the names were soon _^ extinguished. ''

EARLY MARRIAGES. Tacitus says that early marriage makes, us immortal. It is the soul and chief prop of empire. The man who resolves to live without womau, and the woman who resolves to live without man, are enemies to the community in. which they dwell, injurious to themselves, destructive to the whole world, apostates from nature, _rebels against._heaven and earth, and fail to carry out the design of th_^ir Creator.

THE ITALIAN _aiTESTION. Every item of news from Europe seems to indicate that this question, just now the most absorbing in the political circles of the Continent, approaches a crisis. What the- solution of it will be, no human foresight seems to be able to divine. It may be in favor of " liberty," and open the way for the spread of the truths of the Christian religion, and the enfranchisement of the human mind; and it may also be the opposite, and rivet the fetters of despotism more firmly than ever over, the Italian people. _t * - The active elements of the solution seem to be the following: the London Morning Post of Feb. 3, says that "a virtual alliance has been effected between England and France, for the settlement of Italian affairs_^" not byv treaty, but " from the foreeiof i circumstances, _andtthat it already begi hs t6 produce its consequences-=-that'it is determined that no intervention shall take place in Ital y_^ arid that the people shall be left to their own de...

CONVERSATION ANB READING. An English writer, from whom you published an interesting extract in one of your late issues, Mr. Editor, complains of deficiency, in the conversational faculty, among the _tfomen of our time. This deficiency4s an obvious fact to many minds, and his attributing it to the_._^lose studies at home after school hours, to whieh young women _^ are often subjected, is, to a _cexflih degree, doubtless just. Bu,t,there.are"OVk_^_jsmgfl_^perating'against the acquirement} on their _^ nap- , of conversational ability; and one of very considerable potency, we take to be the unfortunate _disposition and practice with young women to devota, most of their spare time to works of fiction. _^ It will surprise him who tor a moment reflects how large an amount of this_^substance or shadow, rather, may be taken into tBe mind without any perceptible increase in its growth.

WHAT IS AN INFIDEL? There seems to be a determination, on the part of a certain class of thinkers'and writers, to paganize our language. They have thought it good for themselves to renounce, or stand aloof from, Christianity. But they dislike to be called infidels. We do not wonder at their dislike. The word lias not a pleasant sound. It is a name which associates the wearer thereof with persons whose memory, has no very sweet savor with a large part of the community. But we cannot consent to the transubstantiation of a word, so as to give us. an entirely new meaning with the same vocalization. The word infidel is an old word in our language. It is found in the English Bible, and there expresses the sense in which it has ever since been current—an unbeliever in the Christian religion. "Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness ? and what concord hath Christ with ...

For the American Presbyterian. ?'B RETHREN, THE TIME IS SHORT." A bright intelligent lad of J.3 jn one of our Sabbath-schoorclasses irfthis city, answered the questions of his teacher so readily, was so well acquainted with Bible history, that it was evident his parents we . re doing their duty towards him in the important matter of home religious instruction. __ , . He lived, neart me, and as his father was a quiet reserved man, belonging to the church, but not known as prominent at all, I felt that jt was both possible and a good thing, to be faithful in the more retired duties of life, _,as well as to be forward, and to " let your light shine ". more luminously. A few evenings since, .that father went across the street to see a sick neighbor, one who had kept his room.for four long years. He prayed with the sick man, and left him. One week after that evening the sick man had died and was buried, and a dark and desolate place too was the home of the faithful, praying Chris...

x,. .-..For the American Presbyterian. _; . REGENERATION. The inspired definition of this great change of moral character and disposition,'which our Redeemer his assured us is essential to entering the kingdom of God, (John iii. 4J--5,) isj that we are "Bora:(or begotten) not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. " (John i. IS; James i. 18.) As " the carnal mind (or will of the natural man) is enmity against God,—is not subject to his law, neither indeed can. be, " (^ Rom. vim T;) itrmust be considered as opposed to that change which consists in reconciliation to God's law; How, then, can we consider "this birth (to be) voluntary "oh the part of the natural or carnal man? Moreover, If it is,so, is he not born or begotten, in part at least, "of the will of man, " which is contrary to ! 13? If this change is voluntary on the part of the natural man, as the change is of a holy nature, the will of the natural man must be hol y/ which is to s...

I know not .that they hate any merit_; yet, I know that if they. had been in out Hymn Book, they would have been sung more than once, in public worship, during th6:_few,»y_4_aipij ofirty ministry. It seems to me that the ministry is meagerly get forth in our hook. I preach on education for the ministry, full once a year. I celebrate the anniversary of my installation as often aa it returns. Ordinations and installations are not uncommon services; _benctej the ministry is a topic which claims some variety. The last of the four hymns in the _Prayer Book ought to be in our Psalmist.

• FAMILY CULTURE. The Rev. Dr. Tyng is discussing topics pertaining to Sunday-schools in familiar letters to the Independent. The doctor's last letter gives the followi ng timely Mn ts concerning family culture: " Many families have I seen who were fixed in the sentiment, that the Sunday-school was not needful for their children, and that even greater benefits would b"e lost by sending them thither. The simple result has been, that these children, though in some cases belonging to Christian parents, and I believe conscientiously instructed at home, have "grown up free from any influence of mine, or of the ministry, or of desire therefor, and, as a rule, voluntary strangers in maturity to the blessings of a day and a church which they had never been accustomed to lovain their youth. I have mourned over this error in occasional determinations with • exceeding sorrow—longing to see every child and youth in the Church in actual, constant connection with blessings which I have been...

KEYS OF THE HEARTS There is a key to every man's heart—though some have combination locks, and it requires both skill and patience, to open them. Yet in every man's heart—as in that tiny mechanism of- Swiss invention—there sleeps a little bird of songwhich, can you but learn to wind ife aright_^ wil l start up at your call and imitate the notes of love that _youi have been taught of God. Ib is worth yearsof toil to teach that bird the song of heavenly love. "All the little mean work of our nature ," says Mrs. Stowe, applying to the heart a figure from housekeeping, " all the little mean work of our nature is generally done in a small, dark closet , just a little back" of the subject in which we profess to be interested. We do not suffer pur meanness to come: to the light even of our own consciousness—if we can help that; But when We find ourselves parrying off some appeal for-kindness, giving way to some prejudice against others , inventing excuses for disregarding them—ho...

INDIA . SIGNS OF PKOGBESS. _BlBSSES. _Edwors_^Io my_. last I mentioned a few items showing a gratifying change in the character of British rule in India. This change is desirable and hppeful_^ot so much because we desire government! in£ulnee in favor of Christianity, as beetoi_^_jgpsire to see the legitimate influence of Ghrf_^_iwity p ervading all ranks of society, and, of obtuse*: modifying the eharaeter of the government. Our confidence as to the ultimate triumphs of Ghrist'r s king dom rests not on the favor of kings _oV, governments, but on the promises of God , andiBe inherent elements of.the gospel itself. Hence , in regard to the evangelization of India, or any other part of the world, the spirit and movements of the church give us better data for inferences, than the changing policy of worldly-minded rulers. II. I remark, therefore, as a second sign of progress, there is a gratifying increase of missionary force in India. I know the American Board is failing to mainta...
