_^n pnal _Ifleirg. Pride. BY W. WHWTON itBBICK, A. M. " Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty irifc before a fall."—Solomon. Pride always goes before a fall, Hath said the wisest man of all. 'T was this that dragged th' archangels down From heaven's high portals; and by this, A haughty monarch, lost his grown, And men may lose eternal bliss. How many a mortal here on earth Bows* down to toil, with care and pains—To toil for glittering rank or worth, For worldly praise, or sordid gains; Then eounts Ms gold and wide domains With pride of heart; and lifts his head Above his friends that gave him aid! But soon shall halt tae pompous tread, The tomb alike holds all the dead. • Vaunt not, ye rich, of greater good Than those who lack in store or food, Whom God the good of earth denies, Perchance for glory in the skies; Your sumptuous halte, your glittering rings, Your daintiest, grandest, costliest things, And pleasures, too, may yet take wings, And leave you poor and low a...

Christianity among the Esquimaux. The labors of the Lutheran and Moravian missionaries have been- so far successful among these people, that but few of them are now without the paile of professed Christianity; and its reforming influences have affected the moral tone of all. Before the arrival of these self-sacrificing evangelists, murder, incest, burial of the living, and in--fantieide, were not numbered amongst crimes. It was unsafe for vessels to touch upon the coast; treachery. was7 as common , and as much honored, as: among the Polynesians of the Eastern sseas. Crantz tells of a Dutch brig that was seized by the natives at the port of Disco, in 1740, and the _wholie crew murdered y and, two years later , the same fare befel the seamen of another vessel that had accidentally stranded. But for the last hundred years, Greenland has been safer for the wrecked mariner, than many parts of our own coast. Hospitality is the universal characteristic, enjoined upon the converted as a...

For the Presbyterian Banner and Advocate. Board of Domestic Missions. CHANGE 01" TITLE. We recently announced the change of the title of this Board. The following, from the Corresponding Secretary, gives reasons why the change was needful. ¦ "' ¦ _*' Mission Booms, 1 _PMladefiMa, Feb. Bd, 1_^57. j" _. When the Board of Missions was instituted by thfe General Assembly, in 1816, th_^re was no Board of Foreign Missions established by the Asgemuly, and, consequently, the title1 given to the Board of Missions was sufficiently distinctive. After the organization of the Board of Foreign Missions, it became increasingly evident that something more was necessary to distinguish it from the F oreign Board. This necessity led to the custom of inserting the term Domestic, sometimes with brackets, and often without. Indeed, for some years past, in the published Minutes of the General Assembly, the abstract of the Annual Report of the Board has been prefaced by the title,u Board of Domestic Mi...

The American'Missionaries. At a late meeting in London to congratulate Dr. Livingston, the African Missionary, on his return, Col. Rawlinson, one of the most eminent of the speakers,.paid the following tribute to American missionaries. "I have myself witnessed the reclaiming of an entire nation from* barbarism, within the last twenty years, through their efforts. I have seen a nation—-if he might call that a nation which consisted of from thirty to forty thousand families—the _Nestorian Chris tians, enveloped in the deepest barbarism twenty years-ago, and now, by the aid of a little band of American missionaries, taking their stand among the civilized nations of the world. Their literature had revived, schools were established throughout the country, a journal was printed and published in their own native Syriac language. And when he reflected on that example, he could well understand, that in Southern Africa the same results might be expected in God's own time."

iFor the Presbyterian Banner and Advocate. The Troubles in China. ; _PiTTSBUBGH, Feb. 6,1857. My Dear Db_'.

Eastern. Correspondence., , ¦¦ , ' . ' _;.,; NewYobk, Feh. 7,1857. Me. Editor:—" How can Presbyterianism be made more effectiye t among the labor-Ing classes!" wag a question recently discussed here, by a company of gentlemen. Not that it fails _altogether to reach' them even jn cities,;where it _eeems more prosperous among thecommercial and professional portion of the epmmunity. There Is nothing in it, as a system, to exclude the poor from its benefits, as is seen by the great numbers which it embraces in itis communion, especially in districts where it predominates, and also by such efforts as I)r, Chalmers saecessfully, made to gather the dregs of a city population into a church; under its auspices.

Church Members Removing. ' /; Multitudes of communicants change their habitations, removing, mostly from the Bast to the West. Thousands of these are lost to the church of their former connexion.

The Hoematological Argument for the _^iii_^ ' : \ Men of Science ahound in their investigationsinto the arcana of nature. In this, often without being aware of it,' they are contributing to the establishing of the truthfulness of Bivine . Revelation, and to the elucidation of Biblical teachings.
