- The Presbyterian Clinrch in North Carolina
has long labored under a serious disadvantage
from the wait of a journal to advocate her
claims and represent her interests. It is esti
mated that only 1000 Presbyterian Weeklies
are taken in the bounds of our three Presbyte
ries. We have 13,000 Communicants, and it
is safe to infer that there are 30,000 Presby
terians in principle in the State. Our Synod
stands fifth in the Union in point of numbers,
and her membership is greater than that of
any Synod South or West of Pennsylvania.
Our sister States on the North and South,
neither of which has a membership so large as
ours., publish the Central, and the Southern
Pres'by teria n, for, tjie beuefiofheir people
"-""TRe tfmt; 'lias Wme'vo)en the 'IfesXyterian
Church in North Carolina should likewise do
her duty to her children. It is a conceded and
important fact, that hundreds of our members
will take a State paper who will take no other ;
The Paper is needed to be the organ of our
Synod and Presbyteries to elevate and en
lighten the piety of our membership by diffusing
evangelical knowledge to promote the cause
of Education to develope the talents of our
Ministry, and to strengthen the attachment of
our people to the soil and sanctuaries of their
own State.
If otjr Church in other States, and other
Churches in this Stat, can supply their mem
bers with a religious journal, why may not we?
Are North Carolina Presbyterians inferior in
talent, energy and patriotism to their neighbors
on the North or South, or to Christians of
other denominations at home? With the
same or better opportunities of accomplishing
this work, shall we leave it undone? In the
language of one of our most able and useful
Ministers, an adopted sou of our State, "It
ought to have been undertaken 20 years ago,
butit is not too late to besriu to do rio-ht."

The Royal Marriage in London,
The English papers are filled with accounts
of the marriage of the Princces Royal' with
Prince Frederick William of Prussia, which
took place in the Chapel Royal of St. fluxes?
Palace, on Monday, Jan. 25th. The account
in the Times fills sisteen columns. London wns
filled with royal guests, chiefly from the Ger
man courts. Among them were the King of
the Belgians, the Duke and Duchess of ;Bara
Bant, the Prince and F i-incessf; Prussia; (pa
rents of the bridegroom,) the puke and , Ouch-
ess of Saxe:Cpbu.rg, Uia Count of Flanders, -and j

mfi-e ceremony of marriage was performed -byj
thft A rch fisIion of Onnfprlinrff aaalstorl w ttia
bishops of London; Oxford and Chester, the
Dean of Windsor, and Sub-deau of the Chapel
There were three processions, the Queen's,
the bridegroom's and the bride's. The latter
was supported by her farther. The ceremonies
wcrefof the most imposing chafactor. Before
the service a chorall, written for the occasion,
was sung by the boys of St. Paul's and West
minister Abbey choirs. At the conclusion,
Handel's Hallelujah Chorus was sang; ns the
procession of tne bride and bridegroom left the
chapel, Mendelassohn's Wedding March was
played. Immense and enthusiastic crowds
thronged the streets of London on the occa
sion. In the evening the Queen gave a grand
concert in Buckingham palace.
There were illuminations and various festivi
ties in London and throughout the kingdom.
The bride and bridegroom were to leave in a
day or two for Berlin, where a grand reception
was prepared for them.
Tio fullest particulars are given of the ap
pearance of the royal couple. After the cere
monyjthe bride, who had been very, composed,
gave way and threw herself in her mother's
arms, in a burst of emotion.
The young couple immediately went to
Windsor. 2'hey were drawn there by the
Eton boys, amid great cheering.
The bridal costume of the Princess Royal
was of rich white moire antique; the lace dress
of exqnisit Iloniton guipure, coi-sisting of three
bounces, the boflv beitijr trimmed to match.
The veil was of Iloniton guipure lace, worn in
a style completely novel in England for bridal
costumes, attached to the head with magnifi
cent Moorish and Spanish pins. The dress and
veil were splendidly worked the emblems be
ing the rose, thistle and shamrock. The latter
lias employed fifty girls for the , last twelve
months, This new style of veil was entirely

the Queen wore at her own wedding.
At the wedding some of the highest families
in the empire were represented in the persons
of the young ladies who had the honor of offi

The floor ol St. James' Chapel was covered
with a scarlet carpet, and was entirely appro

visitors and their suites.
The altar was of crimson velvet, on which was
