"EDUCATION FOR THE MINISTRY." Messes. Editors :--In your excellent leader of last week, some remarks occur on the subject of _iministerial education which need, perhaps, to be qualified a little, in order .to apply fairly to the condition of things in this latitude, however applicable they may be to the church as a whole. For such reasons as those you have given, there is not only now, but probably always will be "intrinsic nnpopularity in the cause" of education. . Its friends have long known this, and therefore, in making efforts to advance it, their appeals for assistance have ever been mainly to those who, from their position in the church, have had a more intelligent conviction of its necessities, and were better able to appreciate the merits of the cause, than is found to be the case with the majority of the people. It is much easier to induce the masses to sustain an able preacher, than to convince them that they should assist in training him for the pnlpit. The diffi...

THE OLD SCHOOL GENERAL ASSEMBLY A VOICE FROM WESTERN NEW YORK. (Concluded from last weefc.) The Old School Assembly comes among us heralding its prosperity and increase. We rejoice at the prosperity of every evangelical church. Though it may not _sympathise with us in all points, if the Gospel be preached, and souls are converted , and the cause of Christ advanced, "we do rejoice, yea, and will rejoice." If ministers in our jchurch in large cities have not sufficiently enlarged ideas to take a survey of the wants of the whole population, particularly of our own members, or faith enough to counsel and encourage the erection of church edifices at important points—if our rich men will throng and cling to the old and full churches, and leave weaker congregations to struggle with debt till they despair, and will not,lift a finger to aid them—and our Old School brethren will go on and build for the wants of the destitute, * or will take up these weak congregations, and pay off their...

CHURCH EXTENSION COMMITTEE. The Committee is enabled now to go on rapidly with its work. Free from _pecuniary em barrassment, it is meeting all approved applications before it. By a prudent and efficient course of conduct, we presume it will be able to meet the constantly increasing demands upon it, how extensive soevef,"t"niBy jnay be. One of the most interesting features of the support given to it is, that it comes from the whole Church almost equally, in proportion to the means of each part. One part of the Church is not burdened unduly in this matter, but the growth is gradual, healthy, and uniform over the whole body. The increase, for this year, when all the reports are received, will be probably about fifty per cent, over last year. The increase in missionary appointments will probablbe l than thisThe following are new _vuuiu vuik7 y arger . *¦** J "V iw* gut * J.UW _l\_Jtl\J Yf XJL1_& C*i C /H> vU appointments: Rev. Wm. H.

UNION TENT OF THE Y. M. C. A. * We call the attention of the friends of Christ's kingdom in our city to the following appeal: The Divine blessing for the last two years having signally followed the labors of ministers of the gospel and others in connection with the Union Mission Tent of the Young Mens' Christian Association, it is believed to be exceedingly desirable that the same work should be continued during the approaching summer. ** In order to accomplish this, an expenditure is involved of about one thousand dollars for superintendence, watching, lighting, printing and removing the tent from place to place. The Association at this time having no more funds in its Treasury than barely sufficient to meet its general expenses, is unwilling to enter upon this work without a prospect of meeting promptly all its liabilities, and therefore this appeal is made to those blessed by the Lord with means , who desire the extension of His kingdom among the non church-going population...

_JfOQH PEAYJE& M1ITIW0S Rev. Dr. Jenkins, in taking leave of the meeting on Tuesday, spoke as follows: "I have frequently spoken before in this meeting, bat have never had any* thing like a personal request to bring until now. I expect to leave for Europe to-morrow , and I beg an interest in the prayers of this noon-day meeting. God has heard our prayers frequentl y, when we have prayed for the conversion of souls , and also for the protection of voyagers—and I believe there is power in the prayers of God's people. I go in somewhat _shattered health, and I need not tell you, that during my recent sickness my heart has been with you. While-1 am away I shall often think of the noon-day prayer meeting, and while I remember you, will you remember me? We know not what a day may bring forth, and it is possible we may never meet again. There are very probably some here to-day, who will never hear my voice again. If there is then , any unconverted one here to-day, I would repe...

An _election for city ofiicers, including the Mayor, one half of the Select and the entire Common Councils, Solicitor, Controller, &c, came off on Tuesday last.

IT P. Willis' Visit to the Watch Factory of the American Watch Company.—Novelties in mechanism have always been most interesting to me —seeming, as it were, supernatural and sudden apparitions of things hitherto deemed impossible—I accepted very gladly an invitation to go where I might see watches made by machinery. How a watch should be made at all, is mystery enough; but, that this ultimatum of human ingenuity in handlabor should be reduced to mechanism, so that a hundred watches can "be made with the thought and labor hitherto expended upon one, was a marvel .worth, making sure.._oflaying seen on this planet-_1 - being very iikeljj|to, be "a dropped stitch" (like an antediluvian lost_^ari) in a world to conie.
