_WASHINGTON IEYm.G'S FAME. The poet, W. C. Bryant, recently delivered a fitting eulogy on Irving. before the New York Historical Society, from which we take the -dosing_, paragraphs: "I have thus .set before you, .my friends, with such measure of ability as I passess, a rapid and imperfect sketch of the life and genius of Washington Irving. Other hands will yet give the world a bolder, a more vivid and exact, a more distinctive portraiture.' In the meantime; when I consider for how many years he stood before the world as an author with a still increasing fame—half:a century iu this most changeful of centuries —I cannot hesitate to predict for him a deathless renown. Since he began to write, empires have risen and passed away; mighty captains have appeared on the stage of .the world, performed their part, and been called to their account; wars have been fought and ended, which have changed the destinies of the human race. New arfs have been invented and adopted, and have pushed...

i won't wore: oir the saebath. 1. I need to rest. J. work hard from Monday morning, till Saturday night, and Sabbath is almost the only rest I get. A. man must rest sometimes, or he will, kill himself. Even a steam-engine, made of brass and iron, must have time to cool, and clean, and tighten screws. An omnibus . horse, that will last five years if allowed his Sabbath rest, will die in three years' constant work. Every year of Sabbath work _shorteios a man's life seven. Why should I sell my life for any man's money ? ' I won't work on the Sabbath! 3. I have a soul to save. I must die some day. And after death I must give an account to the God who gave me life for the use I made of it. It stands to reason that I ought to try to learn what he wants me to do, and that I ought to try to do it. But how can a poor fellow who is off to work at six, and hard at it all day, learn any thing about religion, unless he learns on Sabbath ? And if a man keeps1 him-* self igriWnt_^of Ills ' 3...

BO0_EEKG AT TH1 SUK. A traveller in the'east relates that a pilgrim joined in their caravan who had long been engaged in journeying from one to another of those places held sacred by Mussulmans. It had been one of his religions acts to gaze constantly at the sun.' His eyesfhad beconje nearly blind, and the muscles of his neck rigid in that position. Still this earnest but deluded seeker for salvation continued the destructive practice. Christian, you are bid to look to the Sun of Righteousness and be not blinded, but blessed with increase of sight. - You have looked to him, and been saved from death. You must continue to look'unto him for all that you need to sustain, to tpromote, to perfect the life implanted in your_^_soul. Paul says, "Let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesns, the Author and Finisher of our faith. " Happy is it for yon, if your spiritual mnscles.are already become fixed with perfect steadiness in that position. He that lodk...

MflNeFAST. This phrase is applied frequently to certain young men who are following a fashioiiable course of life, attended with more or less dissipation and extravagance. But with great, propriety this term may be applied to all those who are hurrying through _^ life,—overworking the brain, and giving but little rest to their body or minds. Carlyle very truly remarks, that "the race of "life has become intense; the runners are treading-upon each other's heels; wo be to him who stops to tie his shoe-strings I" What a fearful amount of ''wear and tear._^ to the nervous system is _therein every department 61 life! What _^ eotitinual strife is there in every community for wealth,-^—for distinction and for pleasure 1 JEow .much disappointment wM envy may be found rankling in the breasts o||n|^y persons] ¦ Dr. Arnold, of Rugby, used to s_® f'lt is_^ not work that injures a man ; itis vexation that does it."

to •?HISTORY OF W0BRIST0WB " CORRECTED, For the American Presbyterian We have lately seen a book purporting _oe the history of Norristowu, _ln which are a variety of statements that _mav _^J>e regarded of an interesting character to t_^e concerned in them. It will, no doubt, be entijjed to respect and consideration in proportion as, if is found to be truthful and impartial.

It ii needless to say that we could feel no great eorifiaince in the general correctness of the work after_,_we had noticed a variety of mistakes touching one particular subject. That such mistakes or misrepresentations exist generally throughout the booi_):. we are unable to say. Upon one page, we counted six of them, and we can only excuse the writer in the belief that he sought and received Ms; information from those whom he very properly regarded a...

EDITOR'S TABLE. STORIES OF INVENTORS AND DISCOVERERS IN SCIENCE AND THE USEFUL ARTS. A Book for Young and Old. By John Timbs, F. S. A. With Illustrations. New York: Harper & Brothers. " For sale by Lindsay & Blakiston, Philadelphia This is a valuable book, recording the progress of science and art, and brief histories of the men who have been successful in identifying their names with some truly useful invention. The author begins with the zealous Archimedes who believed, in his ardor of discovery, that he could overturn the world, if he could secure room for the fulcum of his lever; and concludes with the electric telegraph, especially that part which refuses to respond, "AH right, DeSarity !" " The press, and the perfection of the art of printing, are the most practical and _nsefulniiveiitioiis of modern times.

THE TEUE DISCIPLE The conversion of a sinner is the mosi interesting-and ' important event in the history of earth. The rise and fall of empires, except as it may be related to the progress or decline of Christianity_^ is an insignificant occurrence compared with the rescue of one soul from the dominion of Satan. Suet an event may be overlooked by the men of the world, yet it is announced in heaven as an item of joyful intelligence, and the news gives a fresh impulse to the transports of angels. It produces a change in man's character for all his immortaVexisJence. It is to him the commencement of a new _course of moral action, and produces an entire revolution In his thoughts, and feelings, and purposes. It places before him a new object of pursuit, and brings him under the Bway of a new class of moral emotions, and at length invests him with an unfading crown. His first inquiry, when he has experienced the love of Jesus is, " Lord, what wilt thou have me to do?" Some eithe...

MODERN MAETYRDOM What matters it, if we are not compelled to pass through the antiquated ordeals of fire and sword in testifying to the reality of our religious convictions? Or if the boots and thumb-screws applied so remorselessly and so vainly to our Covenanter ancestors, are no longer threatened against refractory Presbyterians; or if our homes are secure against dragonnades and inquisitorial visits ? The age of persecutions in the civilized world has passed, but with it does not disappear the age of martyrdpm. Men are still called on at great suffering and loss to testify for principle. They must frequently choose between sacrificing their _religion, or to a great extent their worldly interests; and this, without violence to language, may be termed martyrdom. One of these opportunities, or modes of martyrdom, occurs in the arena of business. It is the choice which a man of business is called upon to make, perhaps many times over in a short period, between a sense of perf...

IHDWSTEML HOME _10S GISLS It; is well known that there-is in every large city a numerous class of females, who have left the path of virtue an.d happiness, and wha wander wearily in the midnight " darkness of sin and misery. Most of our happy, virtuous wives and daughters would draw their garments closer around them to avoid contact with any one of these, and turn them from their doors with indignation and contempt. Ten years ago, it was estimated that 20,000 of these women were in the city of New York alone. Half that number, at least, may be supposed to exist now in our own city. With the limited efforts that are yet made to reach them, not more than one hundred and fifty in any one year are induced to enter the asylum provided for them. In looking with despair at the vast numbers left to accomplish their own destruction of body and soul, the question arises, Cannot more be done to reach them earlier-—before they are entangled in this web of evil? Cannot the ranks from which...

LIBERALITY COMMENDED. To chronicle good deeds, is one of the agreeable incidents of editorial duty. It is with satisfaction, therefore, that we call attention to the acknowledgment of moneys received by our Publication Committee during the past forty days, which has been handed us for insertion, and will be found in its appropriate p lace. Without disparaging the gifts of other places, to this enterprise of the denomination, it is but justice to award to our Philadelp hia friends the commendation which they deserve for the manfulness and liberality with which they have stood by our General Assembly's Committee of Publication. Like the Church Erection Fund, to which our churches have-given an endowment of one hundred thousand dollars, this is an undertaking in * which capital must be had before any great results are achieved. The purchase of the Presbyterian House seemed, for a while, to be an obstacle to the Committee's success. It wore a local aspect, and did not call forth l...

"ANITALS OF THE P00E." '' THE DORCAS." ; An impression seems to have obtained, how, we know not, that the wants of the Mission in this department are, for the present, met. This is far from being the case. A great deal has certainly been done, and after five months' constant exertion, we are unable to discover more than here and there an instance in which what has been done was done improvidently, and there is plainly seen a corresponding effort of self-reliance in many families who, at the first , seemed to be without hope. Our evening meetings are well attended, decent, orderly, attentive. On last Sabr bath evening, especially, the htiuse was, crowded by an audience of the people of the neighborhood , unsurpassed for stillness and serious attention Yet there are many who are desirous of attending, but are ashamed to appear in their present garb; nor do we blame them for it. Now , as the spring is opening, it may suit the convenience of very many to aid us in fitting out su...

The Noonday Prayer-Meetings at Sansom Sfc. Church continue to be well attended, and at times are very interesting. On Wednesday of last week the meeting was led by Geo. H. Stuart, Esq., who left for Europe the same afternoon. The meeting was very full, and the occasion of his leave-taking was quite interesting, calling forth many remarks of deep sympathy and fervent prayers for his safety while on the ocean. On Saturday the meeting was well filled, notwithstanding the rain, and the services well repaid those who attended. The leader read the third chapter of first _Oorinthlans. The idea of Jesus Christ the foundation stone, was caught up and commented upon by several speakers, and as each one expressed his own ideasj the various lights in which the subject came up were very interesting and instructive. « A layman laid peculiar emphasis upon the importance of a good and sure foundation to a building—showed the worthlessness of the structure if built without it, and then drew t...

The lectures and revelations of Dr. Coxe, of Cincinnati, if they have notdrawn in different cities the audiences which they merit, owing to the authenticity and importance of th*e information which they convey, have at least had, the effect of attracting full reports and comments _isfeotemporary journals, and of informing the public tSat not only consumers, but in some cases, honest liquor dealers themselves are often cheated and poison_^ by adulterated wines and spirits, to say nothing of malt beverages. When a new fact, clearly enforced by scientific analysis, is thus broughtbefore the people, it is neither proper nor manly for those who imagine that their interests will be affected b y it, to waive its discussion, orcry out "intermeddling* against those who desire it. If it is true, it will come io light sooner or later, and the best course is to discui s it betimes in all its bearings, and see what it lead 3 to. Dr. Coxe has shown irrefutably that at least oie-half of the...

mlu%ll%nm%% _ilittts Antidote for Revivals.—In a note to an excellent article on tbe great religious revivals.of the present day, in the London Quarterly Review, the reviewer refers to one of the means used by the alarmed priests in Ireland to keep, their ignorant followers from falling under the influence of the revival, and at the same time to turn * a shrewd penny for themselves. Many of them advised their flocks against this new work of the devil, and represented it as an _altfrming, contagious disease. They blessed charm3, and bottles of holy water, and sold them to the people to prevent them from " catching it." One priest realized five pounds in a month, and another made seventeen pounds in a few weeks. A poor servant had bought a bottle for a shilling, stole into his master's room while he was at prayer, and shook the bottle over his head, to prevent him from taking the " prevailing epidemic." , Death of Hon. James K. _Panlding.—Hon. James K. Paulding died at his resid...

. ' CLIFTO3_T HALL. The well-known reluctance entertained by many families to commit their insane _membsr3 to the promiscuous association unavoidable in a public asylum, and the valuable time thus often !O3t—too . often the curable stage of the disease being allowed to pass—before the patient is placed under proper treatment, long since impressed me with the belief that a well-organized private institution, suitably located, would prove highly useful. The knowledge of several cases of this kind having recently occurred in the practice of my friends, more fully aroused my attention, and suggested more extended inquiries among those members of the profession whose practice lies chiefly among the educated classes. The opinions of the gentlemen thus interrogated fully _sustaining my private viewsin the spring of the past year I commenced the erection of a suitable building for the accommodation of the class of patients under consideration, and having it now ready for their recepti...
