"Western _MissoTarl! The following letter gives information from a region, of which we are pleased to hear. True, we heard much of it during the last year, but it was in a line quite unfavorable. Let us now learn something of the good which is being done; and of the prospects of things still better; and of the wants, the desires, and the facilities. _Greenfield, Dade jCo., Mo., J _^ an. 5. Rev. De. M'Kinney :—I am sometimes led to think that less is said in the religious newspapers, of Western .'Missouri, than almost any other portion of pur country, , 1 feel tempted to say a few things of what the Lord has done for, the land; where he has placed my home, at least for a time. We are probably not advancing as are other Western States, in the cause of correct religious sentiment. In 1843 or 1844, the Synod of Missouri set off four' or five ministers, and a few churches,,on their Western border, as the Presbytery of Upper Mis souri. As late as 1849 there were not more than nine m...

But Colportage cannot be expected_^o _dd a tithe of the work which is needed. We do not ask it to attempt the whole work- of distribution. We do not regard it astat all in the line of duty, nor the best for edification, that the Board should send, colporteurs into regularly organized and well established churches. We are,just as much opposed to sending paid colporteurs there as we are to sending paid collecting agents. In either case, a distant Board is sending, at a great expense, laborers to 4a what tike Pastor, and Jllders, and Deacons, and Female helpers, should do, - as a. matter of official and social duty, ' and of Christian Wve j and which they could ...

"Our Free List." *' Through-the kindness of a few liberal and enlightened friends; we have been ' enabled to circulate weekly, during _the past year, nearly three hundred copies of The Missionary to worthy bat struggling ministers, missionaries and Widows, and to colleges, seminaries, reading-rooms and charitable institutions of our own and other churches. No list has given us greater pleasure or yielded more abundantly than this.

A Sabbath for Printers. j It is well known that , in offices of daily morning papers, the compositors have been, and mos% are still, employed a large portion of the Sabbath. For this there is no real necessity. Good management, with proper diligence on week-day hours, _,can accomplish all the work. We, are hence pleased to see the following announcement by the Philadelphia Daily Times : " The office of the Times will be closed at eleven o'clock this ( Saturday), evening, and will" nbi be ' ..opened till half-past twelve o'clock 'A ' . M., Monday morning. " In making the above arrangement, we wish our friends and patrons to understand that the Times will be issued and served at the usual hour on Monday morning, containing all the news by telegraph and otherwise, precisely the same as if the office were open during the day. On the London Times , and other papers in that city, labor is suspended on the Sabbath. We believe it can pe .done on- the Morning Times, without keeping from ...

California .News. The George Law arrived/. ,at New York on the 13th with $1,250,000 in gold. The Supreme Court had declared the debt of California, which is over $3,000, 000, to be unconstitutional, except $300,000; this last being the amount to which the Constitution had limited the possible legal indebtedness of the Stale. It was thought that an act would be, passed submitting the subject to the people, and that they would make its ' payment obligatory by a vote. The official vote of California is as» follows:— Buchanan, 51,935; Mllmore, 35,113; Fremont, 20,339. ., ; There is a favorable prospect of the Bpeedy commencement of the Railroad between Oakland and Stockton.

i The Weather. We have now had a month of intensely ebld weather, and but little prospect of a speedy change. The suffering in our city is, however, not very great. Fuel is plenty and cheap. A few hydrants are frozen up, but still, water is good and adundant. Provisions and clothing are plenty, and houses for' comfortable shelter are possessed. And work, too, may be had which ia remunerative, by all the industrious poor. Hard cases there are, but they are mostly, if not entirely, the results of vicious or idle habits. The virtuous poor find wherewith to live, and have cause for thankfulness. But the cold is very extensive, and all, in all places, are not so richly supplied. A letter from Salt Lake City, to * the Baltimore Sun says: " We have dreadful accounts of the sufferings among the Mormon emigrants, by the hand-cart train, now in the mountains. The train contained three hundred and fifty souls, one seventh are already dead, and they are dying at the rate of fifteen per day....

_Current Eeview and Criticism. A book is just published entitled, Consmcttion of tee Human Soul, by R. 8. Storrs, Jr.,D. D., (at Davisorfs.) Dr. Storrs is a polished thinker and writer. He has studied the King's English , and is sometimes lavish of its terms; yet he writes often with great vigor and point. His taste runs in the department which he has here embellished with a'series of lectures, combining the Boyle Lecture and Bridgewater Essay, in. a popular form. There is an elevation and ambition in the style, which strikes one throughout as hot quite the calm and easy flow which would best suit the great subjects, As regards the doctrine, we observe, that in the, treatment of the const ience, or moral sense, a proper account is not made of the declaration of Scripture, that even the mind and conscience is defiled.- He asserts, that without Bevelation, men are able to attain the perfect and comprehensive law of virtue, as applied to daily life^—able to arrive at the perfect mo...
