_FB0M _OTTR LONDON _CORRESPONDED BRITISH MUSEUM WITH A GLANCE AT THE TOWER. When Dr. Livingstone brought a native from the interior of Africa to the coast/the great volume of novelties and rush of new ideas were too powerful for his simple mind, and it succumbed beneath the violent pressure; and any one who has stood at the entrance of the British Museum, and watched the visitors as they came out m the evening, must have noticed the same effectthough less in degree—in the exhausted and jaded look they all _j?ear. One day is generally about all the time strangers can well afford to devote to this institution, and in it they expect to see everything— -from the Megatherium to the oldest Bible; to peep into all MSS. of the renowned and celebrated, and see the autographs of every distinguished man and woman that has ever lived, not omitting the fossils, minerals, extensive botanical exhibition, and the coins of every nation in all ages, nor the various styles of binding and printin...

LETTER FROM BALTIMORE. Baltimore, April 20th, I860. Editors American Presbyterian:—Gentlemen : The Presbytery of the District of Columbia has just adjourned, after a short but harmonious and very pleasant session. There being not a great deal of* business before the Presbytery, it was the more easily and speedily accomplished. Rev. J. L. Bartlett, of the Western Church, was unanimously chosen moderator. A request having come up, in due form, from one of the churches supplied by Mr. Wm. B. Ivans, a licentiate of this Presbytery, for the ordination and installation of Mr. Evans, and letters of approval and commendation having come up also from the other churches thus supplied, Presbytery, after due consideration, granted the request, and took all the steps necessary to his ordination and installation. Brother Evans' labors seem to have been greatly blessed upon the field he has been occupying, and he now enters upon it permanently with encouraging prospects of usefulness. A call...

TOWER. C Taking, your seat upon the deck of one of the rather inconvenient but exceedingly swift boats that ply up and down the Thames, on some day when the great fog curtain is rolled up off the city, you are thereby enabled to obtain a parioramic view of the interesting river front. In approaching the Tower of London thus from the _riverside, the Keep or White Tower of the fortress is seen rising conspicuously above the rest of the pile. Gaining the principal entrance , which is at the south-west angle of the Tower the visitors are _^ detained a short; time in obtaining tickets and in waiting for a warder 40 guide them through the various towers. The livery of these warders attracts considerable attention. It is peculiar, and very becoming, arid belongs to the time of Henry VIII. A description cannot possibl y afford those who have never visited this gloomy old fabric any satisfactory idea. It must be seen to be appreciated. It is almost impossible to approach these hoary wall...

EDITOR'S TABER MARTYRS OF THE MUTINY? or Trials and Triumphs of Christians in the SepoyuRebellion in India. With an Introduction by Rev. John Jenkins, D. D. Presbyterian Publication Committee, 1334 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia. Our Publication Committee have in this volume given us matter well worthy of bejng put upon record. "We have here, not good lessons taught by imaginary personages and courts, but the example of actual Confessors and Martyrs for the sake of Christ. In this our own day—as is truly said in the introduction by Dr. Jenkins, there is doubt in many minds whether religion ,. especially among converts from heathenism, has not. degenerated from that high courage which marked the early ages of Christianity. The narratives of the "Martyrs of the Mutiny/' show that even Hindoos have stood the test of martyrdom. It should be. read for its testimony to the power of the gospel, and for the encouragement which it gives to those who contributed to foreign missions. The ...

"AinffALS OF THE POOR." port is her needle, as she is able to ply it;.—but it is inadequate, and she has reached the point of extreme poverty. If she had what work she could do at fair wagesj and some kind judicious Christian lady to encourage and advise her, she might not onl y_^ support herself with but little, if any other assistance, but, gradually it may be, tho' we think surely, so led back to comfort, and hope and cheerfulness, and why not into the kingdom of Gbd?^ This we think has been the case with several yery similar cases already. If we had two or thr_^e more re gular laborious lady visitors, such as!jome that are now laboring with us, we might well hope for great things. The time is at hand when we hope to be able to visit, efeifpauch more thoroughly than we have been ape to heretofore, but nothing can compensate for the want of constant visiting by ladies, whose Christian sympathies led them to it. We submit this consideration to all the ladies who take an interes...

Passes for Preachers.—Many Rail R,oad Companies very generously allow favors to ministers in travelling over their lines. In some instances this kindness is probably perverted or-abused, so as to subserve the most secular purposes. The following instructions, by the Superintendent of the East Tennessee and Georgia Road to the several agents, are intended to guard against this: "Hereafter you will sell _tickets to ministers : of the gospel who are actually engaged in preaching (not trading) for one fare to any station on this road and return. "You will write the word ' return' on the face of the ticket, and the name and residence of the minister on the back. " Moravian Missions.—We often gite statistics of Moravian Missions. They are always suggestive. The following are the latest we have seen : "It is stated that the number of Moravian Christians does not exceed 20,000; but their contributions the last year for the support of their missionaries, amounted to §300,000. They have f...

REV. R. 0: WILDER. This missionary.brother took his leave of the noon-day prayer-mee_$_b|g at Sansom Street, on Monday. He has been among us in Philadelphia for seven months past, and has made upon this community an impression highly favorable to his own character is a Christian, and his qualifications for the missionary work. By his tongue and pen, in public and in private, in the pulpit, the _Sabbath School, ' the noon-day prayer-meeting, and on the lecture boards, he has labored indefatigabjy for the cause to which he has consecrated hislpowers, and for the field in which he has labored, and still expects to la bor. He has oecnpiedifully a score of pulpits, of different denominations, in this city and adjacent places at different times, and has, we believe, allowed no single Sabbath to pass without pleading for India. We believe his presence among us has contributed materially to the growth of the missionary spirit in our people, and we follow him and his estimable lady, ...

Elder Moses Case's Golden wedding.--The somewhat unusual and exceedingly interesting event —the celebration of a golden wedding—occurred at Elder Moses Case's in Southold, N. Y., on Tuesday, March 27th. The longevity so common in this part of the county, and which has been often remarked, _enabl . ed Elder Case's nearest neighbor, Benjamin Goldsmith, Esq.; and his lady, to celebrate their golden wedding some months since. Their near neighbors, Deacon Austin _Uaines and Mrs. Haines, should their days be continued a little longer will complete fifty years of their married life a few months hence. Here then, in a small neighborhood of twenty or thirty families, are at least three couples who have lived together as husband and wife for half a century. On Tuesday evening, Mr. and Mrs. Case were visited by a throng of neighbors, who crowded the parlors to the full. ' Praise and prayer .befitting the occasion were offered by Deaaon Aekerly of the Baptist church, Edward Huntting of the ...

_, m _^ » _pituj if til 'Wttlt.-A sudden darkness enveloped the city of Pittsburgh about 7 o'clock, Monday morning, April 9thj rendering the whole city as dark as night. The Chronicle says:—"Previous to the change a painful stillness pervaded the city, rendering sounds at a distance plainly audible. The bell on the East Liberty train was distinctly heard all through the Second Ward, and other sounds equally distant were quite as audible. The whole thing lasted but a few moments, and when it had passed away, all seemed more or less relieved." Columbus papers state that the injuries to railroads and canals in the central portion of Ohio, by freshets are much greater than was anticipated. The damage to the public works is immense, probably not less than $80,000. East of Newark the Central Ohio Road is covered with water for miles. At Marietta, yesterday, the water was six feet deep on Harmer street, and was rising at the rate of three inches per hour. At _Zanesville the MuskingumRive...

The Inebriate Asylum at Binghampton, _MT. Y.—The following extract from the N. Y. Sun was read in the noon-day prayer-meeting a few days since, causing quite a sensation, as its disclosures show the importance of establishing houses for inebriates without delay. "The Trustees of the Inebriate Asylum having failed in their application to the Legislature for an appropriation of $100,000 to assist in founding their philanthropic institution, make an appeal to the liberality of the churches of the United States and American public for funds to carry out their undertaking. In the course of their appeal, which* eloquently pleads the cause of the victims of ?hat terrible malady—Intemperance—they state the following startling facts: . *• Who can doubt the vital importance of such an asylum, when even before its first story is completed more than twenty-eight hundred applications ha_\'e been made for admittance, many of which are from the patients themselves.

&LfauUmmm _ifttra A Coin of Antioehus IV., King of Syria.— Something for Numisma.tisls.~-We have been shown by Major C. W. King an ancient coin, believed by those who are supposed to be competent to decide, to be genuine. It is of brass, and was found by the Major among money in circulation, where it went rather hard. Its history in this country has been traced back to a public contribution, where it was probably cast by a sailor. The following is an accurate description, as given by a man of learning, after a.thorough investigation: A COIN OP ANTIOCHTTS IV., KING OF STRIA. The superscription is Basileos—king, Antiochou—Antioehus. Figure of an eagle. Theou—Theos. Epi phanou—-Epiphanes, surnames. On the reverse is the head of _Antiochus, who was the son of Antioehus lit, and was given as_^a hostage to the Romans in the year. 188 B. C_, probably for 200 B. C. He ascended the throne in 175 B.
