xTiiB_^esiimiks'_Jeffierson College. Last week we announced the fact, that Rev. Dr. Alden had been unanimously elected President of Jefferson College. The friends of the College will be pleased to learn, that he has concluded to accept the appointment, and will enter upon the discharge of the duties of the office as soon as his relations to Lafayette College can be terminated, without detriment to that Institution. At farthest, it is expected he will enter upon his work- at Jefferson, at the commencement of the term, in May next. We learn that the retirementof Dr. Brown from the Presidency wijl not separate him from the Institution which owes so much to his services, and to those of his venerated father. He will remain connected with the Institution, and will perform, as a Professor, such services as his health may allow.

New-Year's Donations. Not a few of the pastors in city churches seem to have been very kindly remembered by their people at,.the beginning of the year. The Eev. Dr. Budington, pastor of a Congregational church in Brooklyn, was presented with $500, as an evidence of the lively interest felt by his people in his ministry and himself. The Rev. Dr. Cheever received a purse containing $400, and his wife one containing $200, together with an elegant piece of furniture. The Rev. T. L. Cuyler, pastor of a Reformed Dutch Church_, in New York, has politely informed the public that " his congregation, without consulting a' word with the.pastor, had taken the gross liberty of raising his ! salary." Dr. Boardman of our own Church, iabout the same time, received a present of $10,000 from; his people to aid him in tMe purchase of a suitable dwelling. And the, New York ' _^Times ' reports that the Rev. Dr Magie, pastor of the First church in Elizabethtown, Ni J.j received a purse of $2, 500. ...
