It is curious that about the same time an Irish Nobleman the Earl of Leitrim was fired at in the open Street and in Broad Day Light. In both cases it is said there was insanity in the Case of the attack on lord Leitrim it was certainly so. The emperors work is not yet done and we wish for Hift no sudden summons to the judgment seat. The entry of Garibaldi into Naples is thus described by the correspondent of one of the London morning papers who has followed his footsteps and m measure shard cd his hardships. His personal is Well Given at last he does come. The enthusiasm is overpowering. Surrounded by a hand of soldiers sons of Anak As to size and dressed in the wild and travel stained costume of an irregular army on Campaign come Garibaldi. The first thing that strikes you is his face and the deep determination of his extraordinary forehead. A Faeo that might serve As a Model for the Boult or is softened almost to sweetness by the mildness of the eyes and the Low tone of the most musical Volee i have overheard. Long grisly curls hang from his Broad hat he wears a red shirt with a silk handkerchief of his shoulders like the a a Pasuelo a of the South american and Gray trousers. A he escapes As Well and As soon Ashe can from a reception which he accepts rather than covets and proceeds to Tajee Possession of his new a Panage. Garibaldi entered the private Carriage of the French minister his staff following in other carriages and som few on horse Hack the cortege consisted of about Twenty vehicle. Individually i have never seen such men As his Hody guard and the picturesque dress Seta off their height and the squareness of their build. Compared with these soldiers Garibaldi is Short hut very powerfully made. Along the crowded Morinella the head Quarter a of Lazzu oni now constitutional Popolano one or whom Rode before Garibaldi a Carriage through the Largo Del castello the Strada do Toledo and finally to the Palazzo Della Regina Ltd Savoia opposite the Palazzo Reale which the dictator refused to inhabit the Portage makes its Way and Garibaldi enters into what was once a Palace of the crowd waved backwards and forwards and looked up to the windows and shouted for the appearance of Garibaldi. First came one red coat then another and at last the hero. What a cry of a a Viva there arose from the vast mass below when last that Balcony was occupied by a distinguished personage it was by the grand Duke of Tuscany but in answer to no Calls for there wore Only a few of those idlers who always hang about the palaces of princes. It was impose Siblo to make himself heard amid the noise and confusion and so Garibaldi least Over the Iron railing and gazed intently on the crowd. A wave of tiie hand at last Askov for silence but inv in a a Zitti Zitti a Rose from All sides and there was a por oct silence. A a neapolitan a Saida voice As Clear As a Bell and with an enunciation so Dis to not that nothing could fail to reach the earn a a this is a solemn holy and memorable Day. This Day from being subjects under the Yoke of tyranny Yon have become a free people. I thank you in the name of the whole of Italy. You have performed a great work not Only for Italy but for All humanity whose rights you have vindicated. A Hurrah for Liberty p so much dearer to Italy inasmuch As she has suffered so much More than other nations. A Long live Italy the cry was taken up by the thousands assembled and a a Viva italia a a might have been heard from one end of the City to the other or. Edwin Janies an eminent London counsel and m. P. For a metropolitan Borough has written to the times a very interesting account of an interview with the hero of the Day on the Road from Leggio to Naples the Sublime simplicity of the Many a character is what strikes every stranger. Or. Janies was accompanied in his journey by the Hon. Evelyen Ashley the second son of the Earl of Shaftsbury. The Earl and countess Are the fast friends of the italian Liberator and the ladies committee for providing Medicine lint and other necessaries and comforts for the wounded of his army was inaugurated by them. The Muzzi Nian party Iti Naples before the arrival of Garibaldi Lead taken upon them to establish a pretended committee of safety which the dictator at once suppressed. He has no sympathy with that most dangerous enthusiast Mazzini whose Folly and fanaticism worthy of one who is an infidel have so often thrown Hack the cause of Freedom and left to the Halter of tyrants some of its Best friends while is own neck was free. Mazzini deals in disguises probably no Ndon detective or pursued member of the Quot swell mob could match him in w g moustache and harlequin transmutation costume. Garibaldi scorns such policy and his Noble soul must loathe the men who Ere now have endorsed and fatally urged the use of the stiletto of the Assassin. Great ridicule has followed the Young King of Naples in his flight especially from the Paris Charivari which makes up for its enforced reticence at Home by the vivacity of its Pasqui Nades on tyrants abroad. It presents a a King Bombolino Quot carrying off All the moveable of his Palace and injuring the furniture which he was obliged to leave behind so that it might he of no use to Garibaldi. The Royal slave whispers out a a what a shame to Send one away in such a style without a weeks warning a the sex King has not made a stand at Gaeta nor yet marched with his alleged thirty thousand troops to the Aid of Lamorie Ere. / Perugia is now avenged. A the. Sardinian troops have attacked its hireling Garrison its defenders or rather its sailors and after a hot fight in the streets the papal troops were compelled first to Retreat to the Castle and then in a few hours to surrender. Sixteen Hundred prisoners were taken and amongst them their Leader a a major general Schmidt of infamous reputation the same who a As a a colonel Schmidt a hounded on is Cut throats some eighteen months ago to cold blooded massacre in that very town. Be it remembered that this miscreant was promoted because of this havoc to he a general and that with words of Strong approbation from Antonelli and the Pope himself. It would neither Surprise nor offend the ear of enlightened and civilized nations to hear that this wretch had met a double dyed murderers doom. The sardinian Force is in the Popes territory an overpowering. One and it remains to be seen whether Larmor Meiere will Able to make a Success Ful stand at Ancona with those Medley mercenaries whom he has taken such pain s to Drill for several months past. It appears that of the Irish recruits there Are still one thousand two Hundred in the pop it b army. The Dublin Freeman raises a Wail of lamentation Over them dwells on their undoubted sincerity and Catholic Zeal in enlisting As contrasted with Mere Quot hirelings describes the greater number of them As Young men of respectable parentage and position who in their enthusiasm abandoned situations in. Offices and Ware houses and in anticipation of a too probable Issue drops a tear in their Honor. Let us Hope however that Lamorie Ere will not find it possible to fight and that after a further penance on these crazy celts in a sardinian prison they will come Home thoroughly enlightened As to the a a paternal a claims of the papal government As Well As Wiser and better men. Religious bigotry and he udders find their illustrations in the two men Monsiv Gnor erode and general Lamorie Ere the latter As your readers Are aware after the overthrow of Republican government in France retired to Belgium and the re exchanged his military indifference and former scepticism for the superstitious piety of a devotee and was cognisant of this and when the papacy last year were moribund to 1 he appeals to his Friend to become the Leader of a crusade for the Rescue of the holy father. The summons was regarded As truly divine As in those Days when a fall Europe precipitated itself on the shores of Asia a at the Call of Peter the Hermit and under the inspiration of the cry a a it is the cause of god a and thus it is that Lamorie Ere As the acknowledged Champion of romanism began by denouncing Sardinia comparing her conduct to that of a a islamism a to which the stirring address delivered last week to the army entering Umbria and the marches refers in terms of sternest severity. Thus. Too. He has recently repaired to the famous shrine of our lady of Loretto anti vowed a vow that if she will vouchsafe him Victory Over the a churches enemies his sword shall be Laid As a votive identified with scriptural reformation. The ardent sympathy of its chiefs with this country and their knowledge of our affairs affect their opinions on religion As Well As politics. It is a remarkable thing that at the present Garibaldi has As his it chosen Counselor Gavazzi who from his residence among us has acquired to much deeper knowledge than before of the theology of the scriptures while he is the hitter enemy of the whole spiritual Structure of the Church of Rome and a Hearty despise of its superstitions.-�?�, ,. ,. The importance of scripture teaching in Italy cannot he overrated and the flight of tyrants and the emasculation of the papacy will Clear the Way. This work is at least begun and italian evangelists and col porters sent out by the Vaudois and others will produce Happy results. The Shadow of constitutional Protection is thrown Over them. And Thiis it in a in connexion with the Fate of three English gentlemen who lately lost their lives on Mont Blanc and who were buried in a protestant eem Teryy we have the following pleasing explanation of its existence a offering on her altar. The austrian army two years ago. Was put under the command of the Virgin As a Generalissimo a hut we know that Solferino and Many a disastrous Field followed and a now when a priest at Naples had tried in vain the trick of a sweating Virgin 1 with a a drops on the neck and face Quot a sufficient to create for a few minutes a Ery from the women a a Mia Madonna save our King. A hut speedily ending in his own detection and imprisonment we have no Faith in any a prodigious Miracle Quot wrought by our lady of Loretto for Lamorie Ere. It is Well worthy,.also, of remembrance. That his coming Forth at a crisis of the papacy so full of Hope at the t me to its a bettors has but precipitated its present calamitous position. It was the existence of the mercenary bands which he h d collected that g be warrant to 3ar Dima to launch her troops across the Frontier where the demand was made for their dismissal and by Antonelli contemptuously refused the Pope will now launch it the Preater excommunication hut a correspondent of Tite daily news writes a in your number for the 24th of August you have recorded the catastrophe Wimch. Caused the death of three English gentlemen and a guide on the it ass of the col. De get it near Mont Blanc. You Lave mentioned the prompt Aid afforded,.hy, the Vaudois pastor Curie in receiving the remains into his Little Chapel and depositing them honorable in his protestant burial ground. How then comes it that a protestant Cep etry e it under the shadows of Mont Blanc a far from the Vaudois valleys ? the Story is instructive. Bibles have spread in Piedmont one was brought from Costa to corms your in the Long Alpine Winters it was a Well co Porteur was met and questioned at length a scripture Reader and a school wore established after great opposition on one Side and Calm endurance on the other. Finally a few announced themselves of the Vaudois Faith and claimed under the Constitution As subjects of Piedmont Protection for a place of worship hence a Chapel and cemetery and pastor existed so opportunely for the service of the unfortunate English protestant gentlemen in one of the most obscure of the Alpine valleys of Piedmont. Such arc the fruit of Liberty civil and religious after centuries of darkness cruelty and oppression. An infidel reaction Muy come m Italy after the downfall of. The papacy unless by the new testament and the gospel the real character of Christ his truth and his claims be diffused and proclaimed wide and far Republican socialism whether in France As represented by Proudhon or the party of Louis Blanc or in Italy by Mazzini is combined with pan theism or at Hep ism these men have their warm sympathizers m England and Scotland too in some of the Large towns. In London its representatives Are Holyoake and the infidel school in the window of whose publishing House in Fleet Street you see Mazzini a portrait Side by Side with the a a logic of death a and other dismal attempts to prove that Tho Bible is a fable and that Man has not m him something better than the animal life of the beasts that perish. The present English aspects of religious life and literature Are admirably brought up m a recent paper by the Rev. Or. My cosh of Belfast. It forms one of a Senes of intercommunication Between English and German divines and the idea of which Lead its origin with the evangelical Alliance i described m a former comma i cation a meeting at lord.

And surely although there is Likely to be a postponement of her final ruin for a few years we May Well believe that her time is near to come and dior Days shall not he prolonged the religious question in Italy is one of the deepest interest and importance at this moment and especially in Prospect of a proximate future. The Priesthood of Rome Are in the neapolitan and sicilian territory at least fraternize a with Garibaldi. But while they this either from policy to retain their spiritual influence directly Over the women of Southern Italy and indirectly Over the men and while the priests of Tuscany headed their flocks some time ago to the polls to vote for annexation to Piedmont it cannot by doubted that the papacy As such is re a aided by All the leading minds of Italy As the sworn foe of both political and Reli Mous Liberty and that both the italian leaders and the people generally know this men like Cavour and Garibaldi must see that Blind superstition units men for National life and that protestantism leads to National Prosperity.

It becomes us to give these questions a judicious dispassionate consideration. We Trust that few in comparison of our members May be implicated m the alleged improprieties suggested by the memorial yet it is not impossible that they May be in time to come and we deem it imperative on us As guardians of Zion s purity of speak of these things kindly and in the. Way of caution. The question respect my the Sale and use of lager Beer. As we apprehend it turns upon the question of its intoxicating properties if it possesses no such Quality we can of course perceive no impropriety m the manufacture tale or use of it it stands on a level so Fai As any moral issues Are concerned with other harmless beverages nor can it be chargeable any More than creating a thirst or confirming a habit of a More craving or dangerous character that it does however possess an intoxicating principle seems to a be generally tax Ken for granted the fact is sometimes denied for obvious reasons by those who manufacture sell and use it. A proper analysis of its qualities we think will sufficiently indicate of the alcoholic Louise in a much smaller degree pm to portion to a Given Quantity Rof the liquid than in ? other spirituous beverages. Yet its comparative Cliea nees and mildness create facilities to indulge in it the Inore freely often to the Point of intoxication. Judicious individuals too Tuii us that by actual Experiment they have Learned that a Given Quai Tity of this popular beverage has All the intoxicating effects of a Given Quantity of Brandy and that persons unaccustomed to dry Keg it or under the influence a of fatigue or hunger May unwittingly indulge m it. Until sensibly overcome by its stimulant. Moreover the simple fact that intemperate men who drink simply for the Sake of the Stim Lilg afforded love the beverage m question that respectable Imen who wish to indulge and yet preserve a respectable position in the Public regard will sometimes secretly venture to places where it is kept a or. Under the plausible plea of health will have if conveyed in quantities to their houses and use it is a stimulus to their digestive organs,.together with the fact that its manufacture Sale and use Are for the most part associated in Given communities until an unhealthful laxity of moral sentiment and a sad want in the social mind a Harp its use is popular of Trio More cultivated and refining usages that should Ever distinguish a Christian Community these considerations m themselves seem to furnish a sad presumption of the presence of stimulating proper ties in this popular liquid and incidentally indicate that in its use.

Nation and m order to meet these grave responsibilities it is not enough that they abstain from labor or amusement on the Sabbath or that they attend once and again upon the Public my i stations of the gospel it is obvious that unless the lofty morality of the Sabbath is preserved intact by professing christians As perfectly As May be consistent with that moral infirmity that pertains to Man s Best services its Happy effects on the heart on.

Encouragement was also Given to feeble churches to go Forward and secure suitable lot and commence the erection of suitable houses of worship with the Prospect of such Aid As the Board of Church Extension May he Able to of Ford. Athe Synod of Southern Iowa was memorialized on tie Low state of religion and requested to give this subject some prominence in connexion with the free conversation and also to suggest such Means is by the 1 Blessing of god May be efficient in securing a revived and prosperous state of religion in our Borders a memorial came up Rolu the session of one of Otto churches on the subject of the manufacture Sale and use of lager Beer by our members and on the subject of Sabbath recreations. A committee appointed for that purpose reported the following which was ordered to be published and read in our churches. Dear Brethren of the elder ship and. Members of the churches within the Bounds of the presbytery of Fairfield a. A a we ministers and elders of the presbytery a a n of the Man of. The world May be chargeable with indulgences that though corrupting to himself-1may-pass off1 without material harm to the social Community a but the Christian is not of this world. An imperative Law of the higher kingdom to which lie belongs requires him to abstain not Only from All evil but from All appearance of it. This Law is spiritual and if so doubtless requires us to avoid the appearance of evil a private no less than in Public and for the Sake of our own Persic Ial safety and purity of conscience. No less than for. The. Safety and purity of the social and Christian Circle. In itself considered the moderate use of the article m question maybe a matter of a a differ ence Butl relative questions often change a thing of Mere indifference into a thing of no Little Potency for Good or. Evil. If it be right that is the creation Quot of some moral or physical necessity for which nothing Safe can be substituted a then we1&Quot have1 nothing to say. But Iff other and safer substitutes May be made available. If the use not to speak of the manufacture or Sale off lager Beer is certainty of questionable propriety it it does not elevate lower quoth Man la Hub own moral estimate of him self if its presence and use in the family May create a taste and a thirst and a habit that May result excesses on the part of parents and children if the example of christians in this deviation May prove an occasion of scandal though in an inferior degree to the Christian cause-5 or furnish an incentive to the weak or the Young to commence a career that May be ruinous All which we Are disposed to affirm respecting the common use of the beverage in question then it seems to us that the relative and personal attitude of the Christian urges him with a sort of imperative Force to abstain from it on All occasions and under All circumstances.1 if motives of1 hunger or thirst should seem to. Create a necessity on this behalf god has said and to the Christian he has said it a bread. Shall be Given him and his Waters shall be Suie a if motives of health should suggest the use off this1 beverage at meals or or the intervals Between let us reflect that tampering with a stimulant whatever be the motives of however we May dream of safety May insensibly create a thirst an appetite a habit that fed according to its cravings May prove no Lebs rumours than expensive to the wholesome example we should set and the precious Virtues we should cultivate As our life we Trust int what we have said in this regard May be appreciated m the same spirit in which it is uttered a a spirit of a mines i a and yet of deep solicit lunch tor the safety and credit of persons and families and for the purity in morals and Christian example of those who constitute the visible Church lord and that All who sustain the relation off parents or officers of members will exemplify and enforce As far As their circumstances May admit a principle of abstinence1 so scriptural and conservative. A a a f a a respecting recreations on the lord s Day such As visiting neighbors except in cases of necessity and mercy and visiting places of amusement such a Public Parks and cemeteries and Riding or walking out for amusement or recreation a or congregating unnecessarily at the houses of lie sick we take occasion to suggest that All sue i amusements and recreations Are infringements of the letter and spirit of the holy . A. First the Law of the. Sabbath is a moral Law of god s appointment found m the bosom off1 a moral a code that reaches1 every possible human , by infinite same Tiona what is right and. Forbidding what is wrong. A second the Sabbath Law As found in your great text Book enjoins the devout Observance of one Day in seven a not doing our own ways nor finding our own pleasures nor speaking our own words but a calling it a Delight holy of the lord and honorable a. A a third the Law of the Sabbath has both a positive and a negative aspect requiring a holy re tag All that Day even from such employments and recreations As Are lawful on other Days a while it forbids the a omission of duties enjoined prof Aning the Day by idleness or by unnecessary thoughts words or works about Oul worldly employments or fourth the example of Christ and his apostles and. After them of the primitive Church a in observing the first Day. Of the week and gods Blessing upon it. From the Day of Pentecost to the present hour constitute m our apprehension an official and divine appointment of it As the Christian sabbat i. To be observed in a manner even More evangelical and holy than tie ancient a ,.a a a a a fifth thus appointed by our lord and thus invested with his authority and Sanction tie Law of the Sabbath is of Universal obligation and is it to the Ohi Istian a Rule of life a directory to his Faith and practice and a Means of Grace to his soul. ,. A the Christian sabbat i is the palladium of our personal ii ugly. Social and civil rights and institutions and just in proportion As its snored sanctions Are erased from the.,Public conscience or treated As things of indifferent it import especially by professing christians Lithe same pro portion As the sad memorials of individual and social experience prove must the sanctions of the whole moral Law the Bible the Church of Christ. A and the Christian ministry and every other conservative and Christian Agency lose their healthful efficiency and at length disappear from the face of society. In such an event it. Requires no prophetic discernment to foretell the unspeakably sad consequences that must ensue to individuals and to every other interest and relationship sustained by men As social and immortal now Quot to what class of our fellow Man Are especially entrusted issues so vital and so infinite ? who Are especially set for the Protection and control of tributaries to absolutely indispensable in every possible direction we think to need Only suggest that such grave responsibilities axe by a divine hand devolved upon professor of the evangelical Faith in every Christian Denom for Tho l presbyterian Lanner of so its Lorg.
