The _Ashmun Institute. This is a Hi gh School, or College, for colored _youtfy located in Chester County, Pennsylvania, and got up, on liberal principles, by Presbyterians. We have several times spoken of it with approbation. We are now pleased to learn, that good and well adapted buildings have been prepared for occupation, and have been' dedicated to God, and to the uses intended, subservient to his glory. The services were had on the last day of December. The inauguration of Rev. J. P. Carter , as President, took place at the same time. To the Presbytery of Newcastle, and speciall y to the faith, hope, zeal, enterprize , and persevering industry of a few of its members, are due the inception, (so far as we know its history,) and the progress of this great and good work. The following letter will be read with interest: Rev. Dr. McKinney:—As I am not aware that you have a regular correspondent from Eastern Pennsylvania, permit me to drop you a lineor more perhaps, about a sce...

Our Qw& 0ities. In our own cities, Pittsburgh and Allegheny, at the present time, there is a most obvious want of additional churches of our denomination. These cities are growing rapidly, and our Church is not keeping pace with the increase of population. Others have been more watchful, and it must be confessed, more zealous in the work of Church Extension. While we have remained satisfied with the conquests already won, they have been advancing to new triumphs. The Church, and the Head of the Church, have a right to demand far greater sacrifices, and far greater devotion in this work than have lately been witnessed. Cannot a few men of faith and prayer be found, who will unite in forming at least one new church, and erecting a suitable edifice , free from debt, during the present year ? The space, the men, and the means adequate to the work, are all here ; and no possible disadvantage in the end could result to any existing organization. We are fully persuaded that a com...

At a meeting the congregation of _Serubgrass* in Venango County, Pa., convened in the church at _Scrubgrass, on Monday, the 3d day of November, 1856, Rev. Ebenezer Henry, pastor of the above-named congregation, having stated his inability, from impaired * health, any longer io discharge his pastoral _duiies, asked the congregation to unite with him in the application he was about to make to Presbytery, to be released from his charge; whereupon the following resolutions were unanimously adopted: Resolved, That in so doing, we contemplate the proposed separation with regret; yet, believing that he has given the subject his prayerful consideration, and that he feels it his duty to take this step, we feel constrained to unite with Mm in his reauest to the Presbyterv.

gentleman. These things promise well in the beginning of the work of re-supplying all destitute families willing to receive it, in our whole country, with the Word of God. We hope to learn that there is a corresponding liberality on the part of many in this region, not only to the Bible cause, but also to the several Boards of our Church, and to our Theological Seminary, and the Colleges in our vicinity. Worthy of Imitation. At the Annual meeting of the Long Island (_N. Y.) Bible Society, on the 18th of December, it was stated that the contributions of that Society to the Bible cause for the year had reached $3,000. Before the meeting adjourned, Mr. George Douglass arose and made a short but earnest speech concerning the value of the Bible and the necessity of furnishing enlarged means for its circulation; and as he wished his conduct to correspond*with his means, he pledged himself for 13,000 to the Bible cause for the present year. Since last May, another gentleman has contrib...

A Visit. We were gratified, on Friday evening last, by a visit to our city of Doctors Van Rensselaer and Chester. They were on a tour of official duty as Secretaries' of the Board of Education. The addresses delivered by them :to the students in the Seminary Hall, were well adapted to incite the candidates for the ministry to diligent preparation for their important work, especially in the cultivation of PERSONAL religion, and the cherishing of those emotions which will impel them, with all kind ness and fidelity, to discharge pastoral duty in visitation, when they shall be entrusted with the care of a flock for Christ. Give us ministers of the right kind, and Zion will rejoice; and such ministers will be produced by the right training. Every cause, by God's ordination and with nis blessing, produces its appropriate effect. In the education of her ministry, the Church has a deeper interest than she has ever yet seemed to appreciate. Just as she really, desires them she will have...

Jefferson College. Rev. Joseph Alden, D. D., Professor of Mental and Moral Philosophy in Lafayette College, has been chosen President of Jefferson College. Our readers are aware that Dr. A. B. Brown, who for many years ably presided in the Faculty of Jefferson College, had resigned, some months ago, but had agreed to occupy the Chair till a successor might be obtained. I)r. Alden was chosen, as we learn , with entire unanimity and great cordiality. We trust that he will respond favorably. He is an accomplished scholar, of much experience in teaching, and well qualified for the position tendered to him. The Alumni , and other friends of Jefferson, will do well to make this the _occasion of their own liberality, and of strenuous efforts with the public, to have the Institution well endowed. The contemplated endowment of two Professorships, the Alumnus and the Brown, should be completed at nni>fl. "..-,

Testimony to the Worth of the Bible in Scientific Inquiry. The Bible is opposed and rejected by many who know nothing of its precious truths; it is scouted by many possessed of the merest superficial attainments in philosophy and science. But testimony to the value and correctness of Biblical truth is constantly accumulating from those who know most of the secrets and wonders of* nature, and who have reached the proudest heights of science. The reputation of Lieut. Maury is well known; Bis fame is world-wide; he is equally at home amid the stars, or in the ocean depths. In a recent lecture in New York, he said : MI have always found in my scientific studies, that whenever I could get the Bible to say anything on the subject, it afforded me a firm platform to stand upon, and another, round in the ladder by which I could safely ascend."

West Spruce Street Church, Philadelphia. This splendid edifice, as we learn from the Presbyterian , was dedicated on the 4th inst. Mr. Breed, Dr. Leyburn, Dr. Neill and Dr. Krebs officiated. Its cost was about §90 ,000; and it will seat, using the galleries, twelve hundred and fifty-two persons. We are pleased to note the progress of Presbyterianism, even though it be not rapid, at that centre of influence. We wish we could speak as favorably of Pittsburgh and Allegheny ; not that Philadelphia, by any means, keeps pace, with the progress of population. In all our larger cities, Presbyterianism comes short in its proper proportional share of the work of Church Extension. An in quiry into the ieason _, might be instituted with the hope of some benefit.
