THOMAS PAINE—II. By persons of intelligence and worth, I have been urged to give the publie some correct views of this bad and miserable man. Other persons, alas! of both sexes, are to be found, here and there , in our country, who know not what to be at, occasionally, to comfort their own reprobate character, better, than by trying to whitewash that of Paine j thus in comparison enhancing possibly their own consequence in society. I doubt, if they could have fished up from all biography, of those who died in this century, a character more debauched, lying, filthy, impious, and every way detestable. If old reprobates wish to _^conform their character to his, and to unite destinies with such a wicked wretch in eternity, still , our youth, yet unsophisticated and ingenuous, ought to be counselled j I may say informed, as to some of the facts of his history j that they may see, who he is, that they ought to avoid , detest, and shun, in all resemblance, as they expect any thing li...

KELIGIOTTS PRESS SLAVERY AGITATION IN THE OLD SCHOOL. Dr. Bice seems to have made "a ripple " upon the surface of Old School quietude, and provoked every Old School paper, North or South, except the more prudent Fresbyterian, of this city, to speak out on slavery, and deliver their respective opinions of Dr. Rice, slavery and agitation. We make extracts from each, to exhibit the harmony, unity, and temper of this large and conservative body of Christians! The dissimilarity of views expressed in their respective organs is remarkable. The Central Presbyterian, Richmond, Ta., after reviewing the subject, says: "If we cannot tolerate a diversity of sentiment on this subject, there is no alternative—there must be a disruption. Bat if it were manifest that Dr. Rice had become a thoroughgoing abolitionist, Dr. Rice is not the _chnrch. He is only one of her 2,500 ministers, who call no man master. And there have been not a few practical demonstrations of this independence in the. fa...

the im MI _NNESOTA _COEEESPOKDEHCB. Messes. Editors:—I left you, with - pression, at the close of my last communication, that I was rather driven, by what I regarded as an oppressive necessity, to this lovely new country. After a flying visit of exp loration, on resolving to cast anchor at this point, I determined to avoid the errors of my youth, in attempting to lift, above my strength, at the obstacles'_^ progress; and, as my youthful energies were _^one_, as I supposed, I resolved to lean on others, and give them the benefit of my experience, in an effort to found churches and institutions of _learning, in this new to country. As I had determined not, again, lay myself liable to oppressive interference, in relation to the channel of aid in my operations; and as a large circle of personal friends in Cincinnati, Indianapolis and Chicago, had aided pioneer efforts on their own responsibilities, I applied to them, in the order named, and found them all otherwise engaged. Neve...

"ANNALS OF THE FOOB." THE MISSION. This mission was commeneed after a. careful and' laborious examination . and comparison of various sections of the city. It was selected because of the general poverty of the people, and their destitution of religious privileges. It was found, too, that here, as elsewhere, there existed strong seci terian prejudices j and this among those who had not been within a church for years, and who made . no pretensions to personal piety: nor did many of j them attempt to conceal their feelings of bitterness toward Christians as such. This was especially the case with nofc a few of the Roman Catholics, • of whom, as we have heretofore said, the number is very large. Under these circumstances, it seemed to us useless to appear among them as the. avowed advocate and representative of some particular church or sect. We thought that to do this would be to array against us a large proportion of the veyy people we wished to call to repentance, to say nothin...

EDITOR'S TABLE. THE INTUITIONS OF THE MIND INDUCTIVELY INVESTIGATED. By the Rev. James M'Coshj Mi.D. Professor of Logic and Metaphysics in Queens College, Belfast, Ireland; author of « Method oi the Divine Government," &c. New York, _1060: Robert Carter & Brothers. Philadelphia: W. S. & A. Martien. 8vo. pp. 504. This is a valuable treatise on metaphysics. Dr. M'Cosh takes position between the sensuous and transcendental systems of philosophy. He places himself equidistant from the empiricism of Locke and the idealism of Kant. He applies the Baconian method of induction to the known laws and principles of mind, as we do to material science. There is in his theory an inner sense to which our emotional and mental activities become objective. In our varied _mental phenomena are to be found the material out of which the internal sense will construct a science as real as that discovered by the natural senses from the material and physical facts of the world w...

HELP FOR KANSAS. A NOBLE OFFER. The Secretary of the Church Exten Committee has received, through the editors of the Evangelist, an offer from a gentleman residing in the State of New York, who wishes his name concealed, to pay one-half the salary of a missionary for Kansas for a year. This gentleman has read the appeal of the exploring missionary of the Church Extension, Committee in Kansas, Rev. J. C. Beach, and is willing to extend efficient help. We publish this in the hope that some one, who has been blessed with the means of doing so, will furnish the other one-half of the missionary's support. The wish of the Committee will be to select a missionary of specially valuable character, and locate Mm at the most commanding point in Kansas, where his influence will tell most effectually upon the future character of that interesting territory. We trust that the great Head of the church, who has put this liberality into the heart of our New York brother, Will in like manner tou...

SUDDEN DEATH We have sometimes -wondered why it is thai the Episcopal Litany should contain this prayer—"From sudden death good Lord deliver us." To an impenitent man, nothing indeed is more dreadful than a departure from the world, preceded by no warning, and with no opportunity for preparation, It is a blighting of all his fondly cherished hopes. He has neglected seeking a personal interest in Christ all bis life, in the expectation o! being able ta the hour of death to accomplish this great work. But he has been disappointed. The summons to return was sudden and unexpected, and would consent to no delay. " At midnight the cry was heard, Behold, the Bridegroom cometh," and unprepared to meet it—the door oi heaven is now finally and fosever closed against him. But is it so with the Christian? Has he any occasion to fear such a summons, or to pray to be delivered from it? A sudden and painless departure from earth, is it not, in some respects, more to be desired by a true beli...

North Broad Street Church.—We bad the pleasure of participating in the public services of this new church on last Sabbath, and were gratified at the very hopeful appearance which the enterprise presented. Rev. Mr. Adams has a numerous, intelligent, and attentive congregation to animate him in bis labors, comprising not a few individuals of long established character for usefulness in the churches from which they have come, and who could only with difficulty be spared from their former connexions. Mr. Adams' discourse in the morning was a lucid and earnest presentation of great Gospel principles, based upon Christ's words in Luke xii. 50: "But I have a baptism to be baptized with, and how am I straitened till it be accomplished." There is a Sabbath school, with an Infant school attached, in connexion with the church, both of which are in a flourishing condition. We were pleased to see the " _Ghorce Psalmist ". distributed upon the benohes.

•Since writing the above, later communications from India give the following:_; " During the last eight months the work of missions has been carried on with great earnestness. The Rev. JMx. Smith has baptized more converts within the last few months than generally falls to the lot of a missionary during a lifetime of labor. Nearly the whole of the inhabitants of the surrounding villages have evinced an anxiety to become Christians. "

pilfifil' l _^nf$lli|_iiu_$ _> A Liberal Collection.-—Last Sabbath morning, saytTthe 'Journal of Commerce,' RevrDr. Adams, of tb_,_© Madison Square Presbyterian Church, made an earnest appeal in behalf of the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions, the result of which was an impromptu collection of a larger sum than was: perhaps ever before taken up in an American church in this manner, for a similar object. Including a sum given during the previous week, the amount collected was eleven thousand dollars. In his discourse, Dr. A. briefly alluded, in passing to certain matters relating to the management of the Board; (doubtless referring, among other things, to the abandonment of the Choctaw mission,) which met with his unqualified disapproval; but remarked to the effect that in these days Christian men could not stop the work of evangelization to waste their energies in combating each other, and that, if there had been great mistakes, there was so much the ...

OUR CHRISTIAN CIVILIZATION. The following is from & paper, the Methodist Christian Advocate, which is regarded as among the conservative journals of the North. Our readers may see how even such journals are constrained to express themselves in view of the recent developments of feeling in the South: The Montgomery (Ala.) Mail says: " Last Saturday we devoted to the flames a large number of copies of Spurgeon's Sermons, and the pile was graced at the top with a of l Graves* G-reat Iroft _Wheel_^_wMeV ft^^ _Baptt_# Men_#'-|^BS_*6tt*^ fot the purpose. "We trust that the works of the greasy cockney vociferator may receive the same treatment throughout the South. Aud if the Pharisaical author should ever show himself in these parts, we trust that a stout cord may speedily find its way round his eloquent throat. He has proved himself a dirty, low-bred slanderer, and ought to be treated accordingly." This is but a specimen of scenes which for some time have disgraced the So...

Poetasters.—The editors of the Protestant Clmrchman and the New York Observer, are comparing notes on their early efforts at making poetry. Their object seems to be to convince that very large proportion of the contributors to every paper who write poetry, that real merit in tnis line of composition is a thing more difficult of attainment than many suppose; and to suggest, we dare say, that a man may win a handle to his name-without either poetical ability or eminance. The Churchman -editor says: . "We never succeeded in making more than one verse, and that verse, when made, cured us of the ambition. If the vast multitudes of our poetizers had allowed the same medicine to work its proper effect, the world would not have been the loser/* The editor of the Observer calls for that "one verse, " and as an encouragement to his neighbor gives some of his own experience: _s "When a mere, boy, a sister challenged us to. wr|te poetry, and it was agreed that one of us should write two ...

CHRISTIAN VERNACULAR EDUCATION SOCIETY f OR INDIA.. We have received a circular from England with the significant heading, "in memoriam." We are happy to lay it before the readers of the American. Presbyterian. This Society was founded in May, 1858, as a Memorial Work, and truly Christian revenge on India for the injuries and horrors of the Mutiny, by a united effort of the leading Missionary Societies and Christians of various evangelical denominations in Great Britain. Its object is to aid in giving a Christian education to the 180,000,000 of British subjects in India, by training teachers and preparing Christian books in their fourteen mother-tongues. . An arrangement has been made with the Secretaries of the Church, Wesleyan, London, Baptist, and Moravian Missionary Societies, to select a certain number of their best established schools in various parts of India as vernacular training institutions. . In virtue of this arrangement, such'institu ttpns-will be open to pupils of...
