litical or social evils, have interrupted the progress, or checked the energies of the people. The great interest? of education, morality and religion, have been cherished and sustained. Health and peace, with their attendant blessings, have been ours.

Message of Governor Pollock, of Pa. Asa politician, Gov. Pollock belonged to the Old Whig party, with, we believe, a pretty strong leaning to "Americanism," and some inclination to modern " Republicanism." As a Patriot, he looks with a liberal eye toward the interests of his whole country, with a very strong attachment to his own State, her agriculture, manufactures, commerce and internal improvements. As a Christian, he belongs to that class who appreciate an open Bible, a sanctified Sabbath, and an untrammelled choice in faith and worship. From the Governor's late Message, we shall give a few extracts. After a brief _introduction, he says: The past year has been one of unusual prosperity. The bounties of a kind Providence have not been withheld from our Commonwealth. A plenteous harvest has rewarded the labor of the husbandman Honorable industry, in all its departments, lias been encouraged. No financial embarrassments—no commercial _dtstress_^ —no po-

C|t §ible for the Presbyterian Banner and Advocate Bible Narratives.—lio. 18.: THE HOUSE 01" TEBAH.—GEN. XI: 27—32. The grand and leading object of Bible history is prominently presented in the similar and peculiar order of naming the sons of Noah and Terah. Shem, the second son of Noah, is named first, because he was the father of Heber and the Hebrews, and a primogenitor of the Messiah. Ham,- the youngest son, is named second, because his descendants early took a high and an important v political position in the world. Thus Japheth, though the eldftst son of Noah, (Gen. x : 21,) is named last, as in hfs racerhe is historically the youngest. In the , House _,of Terah, Abraham, though_, the youngest by sixty years, is, like Shem, the first in the list, since * he is the one for whose sake the ' Bible gives the history of the family. > Nahor, whose name figures, in connexion with the descendants of " the Father of the Faithful/' is next. Haran,-though perhaps the eldes...
