Washington Correspondence. Washington, Feb. 9, .1857. Since Mr. Buchanan's departure, the, political elements that were so much stirred for a week, have gradually subsided into their wonted composure. He left without indicating any positive preference for his cabinet, or inviting a single member to his future council-board. Still, there were some unmistakable inferences; and from these it is reasoned, that Mr. Maroy, Gen. Class, Mr., Walker, and Mr. Hunter, are all excluded from the programme. They were each urged with some degree of zeal for the Department of State; and even ; now, efforts are still prosecuted for one or'more of them, with persiBtent purpose. Considering that the prominent names are thus precluded, the natural inquiry is, who will get the Premier's place ? The general conviction here, in the best informed circles, is, that Mr. Cobbof Georg ia, is uppermost in the revolving wheel of fortune. He stands near to Mr. Buchanan's confidence and partiality; and, while ...

Pennsylvania Railroad. . - .. ;At the Annual Meeting of the Compan y_^ in, Philadelphia, on the 2d _insi., a Report was presented, showing its prosperous condition. About 150 miles of the second track are now laid, adding greatly, to the facilities for;business, and the security of travel. To complete the double line, $1,000,000, beyond the preparation on hand, wll be needed. A general passenger station, for the accommo dation of this and other railroads centering at this city, is to be built. This improvement is greatly needed. It should embrace all the roads. We have now the Penna , the Pittsburgh, Fort Wayne and Chicago, and' the Allegheny¦: Valley; and will soon have added, the _CoDnellsville, the Steubenville, and the Chartiers Valley roads.. A well arranged Btation for all 1he roads coming into a city is a very great convenience, and has its influence in inciting passengers to choose a route which affords the accomodation.

The Eural Hew Yorker. This is one of the excellent Agricultural papers of the country, embracing with instruction respecting fields and their contents, and buildings and their adaptations, much that is useful by the farmer's fire-side. The. Moral, Literary and Scientific contributions to its columns are valuable. (See advertisement.) Coal Burning Locomotives. i The increasing scarcity of wood makes it highly ; desirable that locomotives should be so construct- j ed as to use coal. After many trials, it seems that the end has been attained. Several have been manufactured, by the Messrs. _Norris, on Phlegei's plan, which are said to answer the purpose admirably. Either anthracite or bituminous coal may. be used, and the latter, without coaking, as the construction is such that the smoke is all consumed. ¦ . ..

_ITor the Presbyterian Bannerand Advocate. Remarkable Narrative. '[Extracted from ancient MSS. found in the ' East] These ujrique productions, bearing the stamp of a ' remote antiquity, have already attracted the attention of the literary world, and bid fair to cast into the shade the sublimest efforts, of modern genius. They claim consideration on several accounts. They illustrate subjects which had been involved in deep obscurity, and solve interesting problems which had long puzzled the scientific world. They shed abundant light upou History, Geography, Moral Science, Jurisprudence, Chronology, ; Ethnology, and other branches of learning. Of their authenticity and credibility, a reasonable doubt no Ion ger exists. The authors, tnougn belonging to different ages, betray a singular unity of design, and.their works constitute a harmo• nious whole. The writer of this article has, for some years, made them his constant study; and, in spite of the difficulties pertaining to languag...

For the Presbyterian Banner and Advocate. * The Princeton Keview, and Neglect of Infant Baptism. We read with interest the article on the " Neglect of Infant Baptism," in the last number of the Princeton Review. We consider the suggestions of the reviewer timely, and his remarks and conclusions generally judicious; but we cannot adopt the result at which be arrives, as to _ihe extent of the neglect of infant baptism, as correct. After an elaborate array of statistics; and after objecting to 12.5 communicants for each child baptized per year, the ratio given by the New York Observer, and of 10 by the editor of the Presbyterian Banner and Advocate, he adopts the ratio of one infant baptism each year to every six communicants. He then adds, " Thus have more than two-thirds of the children of the Ohureh been * cut off' from the people of God, by their parents' sinful neglect, and by the Church's silentacquiescence therein." It is said that figures will not lie. This saying, however,...

jfar t|e _Jamt _^ Content and Discontent. Two little girls went into the fields to gather flowers. They found buttercups, dandelions, violets, and paany other blossoms. One of the childieri was pleased with everything, and began to pick such flowers as she met with. In a little while this girl had collected quite a bunch of flowers; and though some of them were not very handsome, yet altogether they made a beautiful bouquet. The other girl was more dainty, and determined to pick only such flowers as were very beautittil. She! disdained to gather the dandelions, for they were so common; and she would not pluck the buttercups, for they were all of one color, and did not take her fancy. Even the blue violets were not enough for her. Thus the little pair wandered on through the fields till they were about to return home. "B y this time the dainty child, seeing that her sister had a fine collection of flowers , while she had none, began to think it best to pick such as she could ...

J pr mt _Jwies Ladies' Influence on Elder Lads. There is one thing in school work which I wish to press on you; and that is, that you should not confine your work to the girls, but bestow it as freely on those who need it more, and who (paradoxical as it may seem ,) will respond to it more deeply and freely—the loys. I am not going to enter into the reasons why. I only entreat you to believe me, that by helping to educate the boys, or even (when old enough ,) by taking & class (as I have done with admirable effect,), of grown up lads, you may influence forever not only the happiness of your pupils, but of the girls whom they will hereafter marry It will be a _txun to your owu s_«x, as well as to ours, to teach them courtesy, self-restraint reverenee for physical weakness, aduiio-tiom of tenderness and genilness; and it is ode which only a lady can bestow.

Very Benevolent. Mrs. A was a church-member; she thought herself exceedingly benevolent. She gave to almost every cause. We will see how benevolent she was. She gave six dollars for a pocket-handkerchief, andhaviDg a dollar left after the purchase, dropped it in the box for " Foreign Missions." She gave forty dollars for a crape shawl, and two dollars the same day to " Domestic Missions" —she gave ten dollars for a pair of earrings, and a quarter of a dollar to the " Tract Society"—three hundred dollars she expended on a fashionable party, when her. daughter Amelia " came out," and fifty dollars went toward repairing the church, and paying the pastor. Her elegant cut velvet hat cost fifteen dollars—she paid fifty _fipnts ahmit the same time toward a new Sabbath School library.
