_PASTORAL l_^_SITIBTG. " JohnsWesley said: _" By repeated experiments , •we learn uthat, though a man preach like an;angel, he will neither collect nor preserve a _societyjvhich is cplleeted, without visiting them from house to house." A writer iri an exchange says; " One hundred" years' of' Methodistic labors,_^sufferings, .and suecesses, have'greatly added to the strength of the remark. '' 1 _. ; ; . ; - And yet<the well-nigh.unanimous testimony of _accredited writers ' on the subject is, that the pulpit is the chief source of the preacher's usefulness. -For weakness or indolence there, running about from house to house is a poor substitute. The; oldest settled minister in this city, a man who for half a century has stood with ever growing influence arid power at the head of an important charge, has confined his social intercourse with his flock almost who% to occasions -of_« sickness or bereavement. -We by no means undervalue pastoral visitation ; but it is idle to a...

A PBEACHER'S SELE-QTJESTIOHIirG. Am 1 living to .the greatest possible good purpose upon earth? Have I enough holy ambition to resolve, as did a eertain preacher of the last century, that supposing the economy of grace to adtnit at no one time, upon earth, more than a single man to bein all respects just what God would have him, that then I be that very one? Am I right unless aiming as high as possible ? If the great white throne should just now appear, could my own common sense deeuvit appropriate for the Judge to smile on me while I was conscious of having knowingly aimed lower than I might? If my own heart does not assure me—if, in my own sight. I do not seem to.be just right—am I right in the sight ' of ,Him who knoweth all things? When I attain to undoubted safety of my own soul as; a steward over ministerial gifts for winning others, will;not toy mind be cheerfully clear under sudden suggestion of tests whether from a present printed article, or the anticipated judgment-...

THE NEXT GENERAL ASSEMBLY. We claim no right to dictate to the General Assembly of otir church, or to any other ecclesiastical body; yet, in common with all others, we think ourselves at liberty to make suggestions in reference to matters pertaining to the welfare of the church, and we should be unworthy of a place as public journalists, if, in common with other conductors of the press, we were not able to make suggestions that would be worthy of attention. Oar denomination has never occupied a position 80 well fitted to inspire _confidence and to encourage hope, as _fl will do, at the time of the meeting of the coming Assembly.- It has become in a good degree consolidated. Its position is defined. Its relation to other denominations, and to the great questions of the age, has become understood. Its resources are increased and increasing. Great questions which threatened to convulse and rend it, have been met, discussed, settled. Among the other denominations of the land it oc...

THE OLD SCHOOL GENERAL ASSEMBLY: A VOICE FROM WESTERS NEW YORK. * Annual Report for 1859. Pp. 26, 27 The'O S. General Assembly is about to meet in our goodly city of _^Rochester. Mos t o£ our citizens, even the most indifferent to ecclesiastical matters, know ther%-jare two General Assemblies of the Presbyterian Church, meeting the same day annually; and that most pf the churches and ministers in Western New York are what are called " New School."

WASHINGTON CITY CHURCHES. Messrs. Editors:—In my short note of last week, I mentioned the fact of the present work of renovating, enlarging, and every way improving two of- our most important church edifices in the city of Washington. A few further facts in ' regard to one of these, now in my posession_, may not be uninteresting, in addition to what has already been communicated. I refer to the Fourth Church, of which the Kev. J. C. Smith , D, D., has for a period of twenty years been the laborious successful pastor. During this period, I find it stated, Dr. Smith has received to his communion 792 members, giving off members at different times , and largely, to other new enterprises starte d in the city, and his people having aided liberall y towards the erection of their edifices. I am credibly informed that the Assembly's church , (Rev. A. G. Carothers) was built on the personal responsibility of the Pastor of the Fourth Church , aided by Mr. Carothers. Ten of its members ha...

WELSH ESTIMATE OF TOM PAINE- An intelligent Welsh woman, on having her attention qalled to the interesting series of letters on Tom Paine by Dr. Cox, which have appeared in our columns, remarked that her countrymen 's estimate of the character of that notorious unbeliever was in perfect accordance with that presented in those articles. To express more emphaticall y their abhorrence, they actually went to the trouble of having the initials oj his name, "T. P., " stamped upon the heads _«i their shoe-nails/that they might have the questionable satisfactipn of treading them under ft*1 at every step, as often as they had nails in _tltf;r shoes.

Installation of Rev. Mr. Bobbins.—Rev. F. L. Robbins was installed pastor of the Green Hill Church on Sabbath evening last. Rev..Charles Brown presided and put the constitutional questions; Rev. E. E. Adams preached the sermon from Luke ii. 14, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men;" dwelling upon the idea that the duty of the church and its ministry was to proclaim the coming of Christ to men. The charge to the pastor was delivered by Rev. Dr. Brainerd_, and that to the people by Rev. Dr. Wallace. These exercises were uniformly of a high order. Every thing passed off satisfactorily and well, and a good impression was made upon the crowded audience. Tip pastor has our cordial wishes-for his success in this important and growing field of labor. , Noon Day Prayer Meeting.—Saturday is always specially devoted to prayer for Sabbath School labors, and much interesting incident generally comes out on that day.

mM».MMi:_mtt% Charleston _Convention.—-The National Democratic Convention to nominate candidates for the highest offices of the nation, is in session in Charleston, and has,been for more than a week.,- " Hon. Caleb pushing, of Mass., was chosen President of the Convention, Perhaps more than the usual tumult and conflict of discordant opinions which, characterize such meetings .are apparent_^. The great struggle seems to be on the: part ofithe South to retain their ancient ascendency over the Democratic party_.and to force that party still farther in a pro-slavery direction. A great battle has been fought both in' the Convention and in'Cdmmittee, on-the platform; of principlesi to Be adopted. A majority and two minority reports have been _maSe _. ' _neifclier of which, however, is likely to satisfy the _ultra Sbutherh wing, unless an individual pledged to the protection of slavery in the territories is . nominated for the Presidency, The contest for the nomination is clearly be...

TEE PBESBY1_ERIAN m&MTEB&Y REVIEW. I OR APRIL. Interesting, readable, and valuable as usual. No intelligent layman in oar church should be without it In the first article,—"Who is Responsible for the present Slavery agitation TH — the writer takes an impartial and common sense view of the subject, dealing out praise and blame with even-handed justice to all. ' 'the causes mentioned and discussed are,— the existence among us of such an institution as slavery; the entirely new ground on which the system is now defended; the selfish and mercenary motives of many who keep up the agitation; the political parties; northern presses, secular and religious, which keep up the slavery agitation for their own advantage; the interests of trade; and a practical violation of reciprocal obligations_. To quote from one of our most respectable dailies: " The entire spirit of the article is magnanimous and free-hearted, aud could the principles of the author prevail, slavery agit...
