FAMILY PEAYEB AT A _TAVEEIT. Rowland Hill was once driven by a storm into a village inn, and compelled to spend the night. When it grew late, tbe landlord sent a request by the waiter that the guest would go to bed. Mr. Hill replied, "I have been waiting a long time, expectiug to be called to family prayer." •* Family prayer! T-don't know what you mean, sir; we never, have such things here." "Indeed! Then tell your master I cannot go to bed until we have family prayer." The waiter informed bis master, who in consternation bounced into the room occupied by the faithful minister, and said, "Sir, I wish you would go to bed. I cannot go until I have seen all the lights out, I am so afraid of fire." "So am I," was the reply; "but I have been expecting to be summoned to family prayer." "AH very well, sir; but it cannot be done at an inn." " Indeed! Then, pray get my horses; I cannot sleep in a house where there is no family prayer." The Jurist preferred to dismiss his prejudice rath...

Porthe American Presbyterian, THEiOBPHAN?S BREAM. *' Above the sun-lit sky, Amid those brighter rays, Where angels float, and pour the note Of everlasting praise :— Where love, on golden wing, And truth, enrobed in white, With harp of fire, and golden lyre, Proclaim their fast delight:— ' Where martyrs sit on thrones,: And bliss supremely reigns, ' >. And voices all obey the call To sing, in heavenly strains:— My parents dear 1 saw, In visions of my bed, Their labors done, their victories won, And crowns upon their head* I wdke to chide the fate . . *-.-*' ¦ That held me mourning here, I longed to die, that I might fly, With them, to that bright sphere. A voice from heaven said, " First give that life to me; ' - If faithful, thoti, where they are now, Shall there in glory be. " _Wisitow.

For the American Presbyterian. INDIA. PREVALENCE OS1 TME ENGLISH LANGUAGE. Missus, Editoes j —Some years ago, the American missionaries in Western India wrote as follows, viz.: "Among the young men of this country, the desire for education is very strong, and is daily becoming stronger. What they principally seek is an English education. They regard It as the a venae to success and influence. We may find fault with that desire j we may exert ourselves to make them do so j the fact remains. We cannot overcome it. We should incur odium by attempting to do so. .And having the appearance of being something providential, it commands our respect. India is awakening, and, like a Caspar Hauser, needs to be taught every thing. The young men wish to know not only we|tera. theology, .but every, thing western. "God ima a high purpose: to _lulfil _ia regard to India. And in the passion for English .education, _and in all the peculiar circumstances of this people, we must discern his wor...

NATURE THE SOURCE OF POETIC INSPIRATION. . Cor the American Presbyterian There is, probably, no place in the world where the cultivation of the laud, and what is called landscape _gardening, is carried on to so high a state of perfection as in England. The "E nglish study nature intently, and seem to have an exquisite sense of her graceful forms and harmonious combinations: It is On account of this devotion to nature that England has furnished so many poets. The poets of other countries have become acquainted with the general charms of nature; but the British poets seem to have studied nature minutely, to have revelled-in all her hidden treasures. The rustling trees, the gurgling brook, the humble violet, the spotless lily, and the glistening dewdrop, all have been seen by these close observers, and wrought out into-some charming tain nr moral. • !

_PECULIARITIES OF THE EAKLY PRE40HEES, When a bishop or preacher travelled, he claimed no authority to exercise the duties of his functions, unless he was invited by the churches where he attended public worship. The primitive churches had no idea of a bishop of Rome presuming to dictate to a congregation in Africa. Nothing, however, was more common than such friendly visits and sermons, as were seen in practice. The churches thought them edifying. In case the bishop was sick or absent, one of the deacons, or sometimes a shorthand writer, used to read a homily, that bad been preached, and, perhaps, published by some good minister, and sometimes a homily that had been preached by the bishop of the chnrch. We have great obligations to-primitive notaries, for they very early addressed themselves to take down the homilies of public preachers. Sometimes the hearers employed them, sometimes the preachers, and sometimes themselves. For this .purpose they carried writing tablets, waxe...
