Very respectfully, your obedient servant,
L. 8. IVES.
We have never hesitated to say, in answer to the
question- Which do yon recommend as the most use
lul Family Bible !" That published under Uw direc
tion of the British Society for prouMing Christian know
ledge, commonly known as D'Oyly and Mants Bible,
It eonUius a full, yet not cumbrous, commentary oa the
Hcripturea, drawn from the best of human sources, the
Divines of the Church of England. It is simple and
intelligible to all it is sufficient for all common pur.
puses in iU geographical, historical, and critical expla
nation of difficult passages above all, it is devotional,
spiritual, and practical. A simple enumeration of the
eminent persons through whose hands it passed, will
sufficiently vouch for what we have said. The notes
were chosen and arranged by the Rev. Mr. (now Dr.)
D'Oyly, and the Rev. Dr. (now RL Rev. Bishop.) Msnt,
then domestic chaplains to the Archbishop of Canter
bury. These wars then revised by a Committee, eon
aisting of Dr. Middleton, (since Bishop of Calcutta,)
Dr. Van Mildert, (now Bumop of Durham,) and Arch
deacon Pott ; The. Whole matter, after revision, was
finally submitted to the inspection of Dr. Howler, Bi
shop of IjMidon, (now Archbishop f Canter bury,) and
Dr. Tomline, Bishop of Lincoln, (since of Winchester,
and now deceased,) the learned author of the "Ele
ments of Christian Theology." The American reprint
was edited, with large and most valuable additiona,bj the
late Bishop Hubart, and was earnestly recommended at
its first appearance, by the Budiop, for the use of fami
lies' in their several dioceses.
We insert with pleasure the following testimonials to
its excellence the former from the Protestant Episco
palian, published in Philadelphia, the latter from the
Rev. Dr. Robertson, American Missionary in Greece:
"Every family attached to the Church ought to be
supplied with this Bible The writer of thia notice has
in his Library Scott, Henry, and Clarke, and, although
each of them is some timoa very good in his observa
tions, and each possesses peculiar merits, yet neither of
tiiem is so genermtlf satisfactory as the compiled com
mentaries in the work referred to. This is, to use
common expression, a good stand-by, a safe guide to
the Chuicluiisn, a wise counsellor, an instructive teach
er, a prudent and timely monitor. It ia the only com
mentary which has any degree of ecclesiastical authori
ty attached to it, the only commentary which is in the
toast e caJWra. For, besides being a publication of
a ieoerable and. extensively oselui society, it embraces
in' its well selected extracts, explanatory of scripture,
the results of the study and experience of.the. most emi
nent writers of the Church of England writers that
tre of the; first authority :tonh tteologic woilaVtiKr
of the highest literary reputation, We have represent
ed to us the work, not of one man, but of the Wisest
and best mea of the i Church; not the light of.one mind
only, but the concentrated rays of many of the brighest
luminaries. We have here applied to the elucidation,
defence, jn4 enforcement of Holy Writ, the, power of
Horaley ; the Viennese of Taylor; the mild eloquence of
Ilorne; the unadorned energy and learning of Pearson;
the pious meditativenees of Hall, and the sagacity of
Paley. The "judicious Hooker " in one age; the staunch
Churchman, Danberry, ia another; tha commentators,
Patrick, Lowth, and Whithy, the acutest Critics, the
most diligent and faithful travellers in the Holy Land)
the most eloquent preachers, and best deVoConal" wri
ters for the heart, even some of "the nowe army of
More arrayed aa championa who have come.SD to
the help of the' Lord."
"When 1 left home, saya Df. Robertson, "I had
not read three jagea of the work, but had entertained,
and sometimes expressed, I Hgftt opinion of rti'fcrmed
the statements of others. A preUy thorough ex
amination of the auiubera I poaseaa, has convinced me
that I waa mistaken; I do not hesitate now to give my

In the month of July, 19, I started out on a bunt

After being out several days, I saw a fine Buck

deer filL I took tip the line Of n-ir tar my game,
when r found tint he "was sliot through" tit brad.' As
the ball seemed to have passed with great force, having
cut down several Isrye hinbs of trees between meand
the deer, I took the direction of th baH, and walked
ahead to see where the ball had stopped. I passed on
but a very little distance before 1 found t dead rabit,
my ball baring passed through its shoulders; little
further on J found that my ball had passed through three
wild turkeys, killing twe and wounding the third; a
short distance-further on it had killed fourteen patrnlgea.
By thia time I was oh the bank of a, creek, about eigh
ty yards wide. The direction of the ball was directly
across the creek, and on further examination, I found,
aboot forty yards from the shore, a large baas of about
sixty pounds Weight, floating dead, the ball having pass
ed through its body. Having secured my fWi.l was
about returning, thinking my baH must hm been spent

A tnong tha most prominent foibles of the people,
and moat especially the fashionable people, of the
United rJtates, is that latent feeling of Infbrlority
which impels them to worship at the shrine of fb
eign mediocrity. - If it were a liberal and enlight
erted spirit of hospitality which prompted these at
tentions and inspired the given of .good dinner
and the dispensers of praise, we should ba proud
of Ibis characteristic of our countrymen. But such
is not the motive. It claims no kindred or affinity
with any generous or manly sentiment, but is the
sbeer otfnpring of a Vulgar, misplaced admiration,
warming its imbecility in the suiwhine of that me

silly vanity with the idea of deriving reflected Jos

MARGARET AND THE MINISTER.
Margaret was the gude-wife of an honest farmer,
living in the neighborhood of Edinburgh. Site
had sold ber dead and live slock in Dalkeith mar
ketonly reserving two dozen freeh eggs, as a
present for the minister's wife. Margaret knock
ed at the minister's bouse, and he opened the door
himself. After the usual inquiries about tbe wives,
and tbe bairns, she began" 1 ha brought ye Iwa
dozen o' talltr (fresh) eggs, to help mode the gude
wue e yw bnnnocki,-. I he eggs were gratefully
received, and the donor kindly invited to lake kail
with tbe minister. N'a, na,' said Margaret, 'I
dirma ken how to behave at "great folks"- tables !'
Oh, never fcar,' replied Ihe divine i 'just do, Mar
garet, as you sea me do." The simple hearted wo-
man consented, ami sat down at I no boarcr. now,!
the minister was old, and well stricken In years,
and withal was afflicted with the palsy. To avoid '
spilling the soup in the journey of his trembling
hand from the cup to the lip, it was his custom to
fasten one end of the' table etotli,'witk two stout
pins, to the top of his waistcoat, just under the
chin. Margaret, who sst at the opposite corner
if the table, watchinir his motions, immediately
pinned the other end to a strong homespun shawl,
directly tinder aW chin. She was now all airen
lion to his every move. The minister deposited on
Ihe edge of his plate a spoonful of mustard. Not
distinctly observing this movement, Margaret
csrned the spoon to her mouth. The pungent
stuff began to operate upon her olfactory nerves.
The poor woman thought be was bewitched.
Sue had never lasted mustard before fur, eighty
years ago, mustard did not grace the table of a
Scotch farmer. Site knew not what it all meant.
She bore the pain to tha last point of endurance:
she coukl sit oa lougej- bul allhe.. moment that
the servant girl came iq with a supply of clean
plates, she jumped up, and with oua spring upset
the girl, plutea and all, sweeping the table of its
entire 'contents. Tmr-crash-jrave speod-to-
