FI_.0WEES IS HEAVEN. "Well, now, tell me what is your idea aboufc heaven! Do you think there are any flowers thereW : I have thought of this very often. Are there flowers in heaven ? Why not ? God has scattered them all over the face of the earth. He has implanted within us a taste for the beautiful , so that we do not; like the brutes, trample them under our feet, but cultivate them with tender care. They adorn our earthly homes, and make them cheerful. May we not expect them in Paradise above? Mowers are so sweet and beautiful that we _fchbuld think no one could help loving them. But is it not true that those who love most Him who made them, love, the flowers most? The profane man, the inebriate, and the infidel, don't care much about the flowers. The silent rebuke which, these innocents express, as they look up smilingly in the face of guilt, must be terrible indeed. I don't believe there are any flowers in helli _i They couldn't live there.

THE PRINCETON KEVIEW AND "THE ELOHIM." In the last number of the Biblical Repertory, there is an able review of "The Elohim Revealed in the Creation and Redemption of Man, by Rev. Samuel 3. Baird_, D. D., Pastor of the Presbyterian Church, Woodbury, N. J. " The article is written, as is supposed, by Prof. Hodge. It is in the professor 's masterly style, and it completely demolishes the favorite theory of the learned pastor. Prof. Hodge and Dr. Baird claim to be orthodox ministers of the Old School Presbyterian Church, and they are recognised as competent expounders of the word of (Jod, and the doctrines of the Westminster Confession. "Were we to call in question either the ability or orthodoxy of these gentlemen, we should be regarded by all the Old School, and many of the New School brethren, as presumptuous in the highest degree. We will not, therefore, dare to expose ourselves to such a censure. We will simply state what the professor thinks of the pastor's theory, and wh...

EDITOR'S TABLE. MANUAL OP GEOLOGY: Designed for the use oi Colleges and Academies. By Ebenezer Emmens. Illustrated with numerous Engravings. Second edition. New York: A. S. Barnes & Burr. For sale by Gaut & Volkmar, Philadelphia. The object of the author of this work in presenting it to the public is not to announce any new theories, or to discuss unsettled questions touching the science of geology, but to give a condensed yet comprehensive view of all the more leading and important facts already established. And in doing this he has given especial attention to the geology of our own country. This last feature of the work strikes us as an important one, and well calculated to increase the interest of the student in this comparatively new , but interesting and important branch of education.

THE G1NEEAL ASSEMBLY. To-day the General Assembly commences its sixty-sixth session, in the city of Pittsburg_, the first session held there since the disruption. That city is a place of deep interest to every student of our church's history. It was there that in the year 1835 the famous case of Mr. Barnes was brought to an issue, and the injunction of silence which had been placed upon his lips by the Synod, and to which he had calmly and gracefully submitted, was removed by a vote cf almost two to one. Nothing could have been more fitting than his election as a Commissioner to the Assembly, once more meeting- on the ground of those memorable scenes. There, too, in tHe same year, and before the .same Asgembly, met the convention o ailed by the signers of the notorious Act and Testimony to organize , measures for the ; overthrow and "exscision of such men as Mr. Barnes, and those sympathizing * with him: measures which were unsuccessful at the time, but which, two years later, b...

ANNALS OF THE FOOE. The following was designed for an earlier insertion, but has been deferred for want of space. _. THE JOUNG HOUSE-KEEPER. Again, dear reader, -let us bend oar steps toward the home of the poor. In passing up this alley we must choose our path, for though it is used by so many persons as the passage to the street, yet the way is not even. Now we enter this yard, and climb this stair-way to the second floor, and knock upon the door. A pale, sicklylooking girl, about twelve years old, pulls the door towards her, and looks out to see who is there. Al faint smile of recognition crosses her womanish features as she bids us "Come in," and then, drawing her thread-b_^ire shawl, closer around Jier neek,:goes on clearing the cinders from the stoye. This is our little house-keeper. "Where is your father?" "He is in the other room,1 at work." We open the door and enter his work-room. There, before us, sits a man perhaps forty-five years old, throwing his shuttle, for he...

THE ENCHANTMENT OF DISTANCE. Esse quam videri. " No man is a hero to his own valet." " Faniiliarity.breeds contempt." These proverbs convey a truth, which in some of its illustrations is deeply humiliating. There is an . upper arid an under side to character. There is a public arid a private manifestation of the same individual, involving great contradictions. Some there are, resembling the moon, in that they always manage to keep their illuminated side to us or to the public, while to others, in a different relative position, they are a waste of darkness, unrelieved by a single ray of truth or goodness. It is a pity that the dark side of men' s natures should so often be reserved for their families, and that their power to please should be qnifce expended on the wider circles of the fashionable or the business world. It is a pity that a father should "be courteous and agreeable to his customers; his clients , his patients, and inconsiderate of the feelings, and careless of ...
