ffht$ IBpitftffyftfirf Southern Commercial Convention. The Southern mercantile interests have had their "conventions annually for a number of years. The object is, to concentrate effort, and build up an extensive Southern trade, directly to foreign countries, as well as coastwise. No great success has yet attended their labors. Combinations have their importance, but there are wants, facilities, and other things connected with business, which are far more controlling than any voluntary union. Trade may change its channels, as do rivers, sometimes; bnt still it must have a course accordant with: its nature. The meeting recently held at Savannah, 6a., was largely attended. Amongst other things, the revival of the slave trade was agitated. A resolution looking in that direction was offered, laid on the table, taken up and discussed, and negatived by a vote of 16 to 68; South Carolina, Texas, and part of Tennessee, are stated to have voted in its favor. «<«» ¦> Negro...

ana governmental management. The alliance between England and France seems to be strengthened. There is a pretty strong bond of necessity holding tho governments together. A rupture with England would greatly endanger Napoleon's throne; and a rupture with Prance would leave England too feeble to repel the progress of Russia- toward Turkey, and toward England's East India possessions. Peace is the policy, as it is the duty of all; and to secure peace the Western powers must abide in union. . The difficulty between Prussia and Switzerland is not yet adjusted, but it is not likely to lead to anything very serious. "• The affair of Naples makes but little progress. It is stated that Russia gives uj? her pretensions to the Isle of Serpen+s, but insists on retaining Bolgrad, on the Danube. ,To this Austria objects strenuously, and she is sustained by Eng usual indications ol uneasiness Joreip jnttllipx*.-Late arrivals from Europe present about the land. land.

First American edition. Philadelphia: Smith $ English. New York: Ansan D, F. Randolph,. pp. 468, 8vo. The True Idea of the Church has been a sub-Protestants have their last. They cross each other's track in the patriarch's tent, in the visions of the prophets, in the creed of Mohammed, in the empires of the Saracens and Ottomans; so that in treating of Ishmael and his descendants, we necessarily follow them through the Church; for here their way lies." The relations of Ishmael to the Church, and his influence on its destines from the dnys of the patriarch to the fall of the Ottomans, are discussed by the author in a style clear and ornate, while the historical references and quotations which abound in the work, show the author to be intimately acquainted with the historical incidents connected with ...

C|t Sibk Cb.atech.etical Exposition. Eomansi:21—25. Verse 21. Because that when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful, but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Q. 1. Are we to suppose that the Grentiles here spoken of, had a knowledge of the one living and true God? A. They had a consciousness of his existence and their accountability to him j but they had no correct knowledge of his nature and attributes. Q. 2. What may be meant, then, when it is said, they knew God ? A. The meaning may be, that they had this knowledge within their reach if they had availed themselves of it. Q. 3. Are men responsible for the knowledge of God which they might have, as well as for what they actually have ? A. They are; God will reckon with men for the knowledge which they mig^t and ought to have, but refuse, just as certainly as for what they . do have. ,Q. 4. Does this seem to be justice? It does j for when God places within t...
