The I_^pre_«iate(l_; Sky. It is a straDge thing how little, in general, peopld know'about the sky.

— —»«•»———• THE RELIGIOUS NEWSPAPER NOT TO BI DISPENSED WITf. That religious information should be communicated to the people, and that many important questions should be discussed from a religious stand-point, by means of the press, is now generally admitted. For _tbetse purposes the religious newspaper was established, since without this it was found impossible to accomplish these things in a satisfactory manner. But latterly it has been attempted to give a 'Teligious character to secular and political newspapers, by constituting them the mediums for making known the progress of the Church, discussiog _mojal and religious questions,.and setting forth the motives to a life regulated by the Word and Spirit of God. With, tbis object -m view, the Journal of Commerce, and, to a certain extent, The Mew~ York Times started i out. But n otwithatanding the marked _ability with which these papers have been conducted, an d- the high moral tone that has distinguished them, the religio...

WILL THE WAR BE SHOET? Generals Scott and McCleliiAN, and Secretaries Siward and Cameron have all, recently uttered their expectations, that the war would be short. That, under Providence, will depend upon two things : the energy with which it shall be waged on our part, and the favor which may be shown to the Confederates, by foreign powers. The war was inaugurated j first, under.:an apprehension that the North was divided, and would not fight ; and secondly, with a tonfidence that foreign aid would be speedily obtained. If both these hopes shall fail_, secession will soon die out, and the people will return to their allegiance. Gen. Scott, addressing the New-York Chamber of Commercej said : "I( have left in the field a large, noble, and patriotic army, for it is filled with many of our best citizens, officers and men, " commanded, by Generals of very great merit—Generals capable of commanding aad of enchaining victory to their cars. I have left in the field young and vigorous ...

The services of the Central Presbyterian Church of Allegheny City were held, for several years, in Excelsior Hall, on Federal Street. The location was favorable, and under the ministry of the, Rev.'

At length a suitable lot,was secured, and the congregation proceeded to erect a neat and commodious house of worship, with no tawdry attempts at style, and at a moderate expense. _, For some weeks public worship was held in the Lectureroom, but the entire1 building is now completed.

EMIGRATION WESTWARD. Our free territory is being rapidly occupied. It becomes the Church to be wide awake, wise and active. Ministers of the Gospel should be transferred, as fast as the people remove and settle. Let our Board of Domestic Missions see to this; let tfce churches-liberally aid the Board; and especially iet enterprising servants of their Lord, young men and men of some years' experience, cast in their lot with the emigratiiQg _thousands, share their hardships, and guide them and their children heavenward. ' A contemporary says i As regards the domestic emigration Wesward, the absolute security of Colorado, Nevada, Dacota, Nebraska, Washington, Oregon, and California from all the dangers of th&war, must undoubtedly attract thither many thousands, especially from the South and the border free States. M ost of the n on-slaveholders of the South will emigrate if they can get away. As a proof of this we need only refer to the rush to California from Texas, to the...

ENCOURAGING It is due to the Bestower of Favors, that we reverently acknowledge the gifts of his bounty;'and spiritual kindnesses certainly, not less than temporal. Two instances of gracious visitation of the Holy Spirit, have just come to our knowledge: The church at Slippery Rock, under care of Rev. H. Webber, had _fifteen added to its" communion, two weeks ago. Much feeling was manifested, meetings were continued, _inquirers presented themselves to the pastor, till now some fifty persona express anxiety about their soul's salvation. At Newcastle , in the charge of Rev. «J S. Grimes, there is also a greatly more than usual interest manifested on the subject of personal religion. God's people pray and hope, and some precious youth are Beeking the way of life. Another encouraging symptom, we may note. On Sabbath week a young friend of oura preached at Camp Cur tin, to about one thousand soldiers. A more attentive audience he never addressed. The Colonel of the Regiment sai...

The Eev.' Dr. Palmer, of New-Orleans, whose Thanksgiving sermon of last year v _wlll not soon be forgotten, preached the opening sermon. Thus has this portion of our Church voluntarily, and without any just cause or provocation, been guilty of the sin of -eohism, and placed itself in a most uoenviable lig ht before the entire Christian Church and the whole world. The leaders im tiiis' movement have incurred a fearful responsibility, nor can their followers be held blameless.

An Important Work,—There never was a time wlien Keligious Newspapers had a more important Work to perform than in saoh. a day of agitation as this. They have a double duty—bo narrate events as they occur, and to interpret those events in the light of religion, thus showing God in HiSTORYj and that not in the dead history of the past, b_«t in that living history which is passing before our eyes. Every devout Christian must gaze with awe on the desigDS of Providence as they are now unfolding, and to make his faith intelligent, He needs to ponder on the meaning _«f these things. Ministers of the Gospel find more than ever welcome the influence of " a weekly journal, which by its. blending of dotty[newswitli religious reflections, perpetually " recalls the minds of the people to that Being, _wio, hid behind the scene, still overrules aad directs the whole.—Evangelist
