Extraordinary Memory. Our friend
Roswell Marsh, Esq., of this city, in an
address recently delivered before the Teach
ers' Instituto at Cadiz, on the Science of
Geography, relates tho following very re
markablo instance of extraordinary mem
ory: "I once knew a lad of some ten years of
age, who was placed under the care of a
private teacher to study Geography. For
this purpose Morse's Universal Geography,
in two octavo volumes of some 700 pages
each, was placed in his hands, and he walk
ed two miles and back again daily, with
one of these formidable tomes about him,
to attend! his teacher. Under his direc
tion ho committed the contents of those
volumes to memory so perfectly as to be
able to correct confidently any one who
misread a word in his hearing. His mem
ory became so cultivated that he often com
mitted forty pages iu a day."
...Experience is said to be an infallible
teacher. We have tested the work of Mr.
Alexander in tho Boot and Shoe line, and
we say unhesitatingly that his work will
bear trial, and prove to be honest And good

Steamboat Debate with a Romish
Western steamboats furnish a miniature
picture of the world. You will often meet
men of many nations, and toneues, of
every trade and profession, and of every
cr&d. A single day will sometimes give
ono a specimen of gambling, drinking,
fighting, swearing, praying, and preaching.
The good and evil are strangely commin
gled. A year or two since, I took passage in
ono of these boats from St. Louis to Lou
isville, at a low stage of water in the Ohio.
As we were about to leave, I noticed a
passenger with unusual garb and appear
ance, who was attended to tho wharf by
several ecclesiastics, w lien we reached a
1 1 . .
Jittle town on the Mississippi, the stranger
with the long coat made his way to the
Jesuit college there located; and our cap
tain, an Irish Roman Catholic, made an
extra landing in front of the collcgo to re
ceive him again on bound. Tho long
coated professors accompanied him to the
shore, and kissed him reverently as they
parted from him. Every thing betokened
the presence of a distinguished member of
tho "order of Jesus," and so it proved.
Among the passengers were two gentle
men having the aspect of Protestant cler
gymen. They were observed to deposit
tracts and littlo broks, in places of eonveni
cnt access to the passengers and crew
One of them devoted himself to tho 'com
fort and instruction of a dying cholera sub
ject, on the lower deck. They mingled
familiarly with tho crowded company of
the cabin, but a dignity that indicated the
remembrance of their sacred calling.
When ascending the Ohio the steamer
grounded, and lay helpless for an entire
day. While in this condition the ' papal
emissary was seen with groups around hiin
with winning words insinuating the dog
mas of his church into the minds of his
hearers, now expatiating on the glories of
St. Peter's, then expluiniug away tho wor
ship of the Virgin, and adroitly preparing
them for the service that was to follow
At nightfall, after supper, a jovial lawyer,
from the mouth of the Ohio, announced to
the passengers, that wo were honored with
the presence of one of the most venerable and
distinguished of the Roman-catholic bishops
in tho count ry, who had consented to ad
dress us in reference to the tenets of his
church. A crowd gathered around the
ladies' saloon, and the bishop who seemed
to be an amiable andjntelligent man, com
menced his harangue, " first saying a little
prayer." He spoke kindly of his " sepa
rated brethren," as well ho might, with al
most none but the captain of tho boat com
mitted to his system and expressed the char
itable hope that they would all be brought
to the faith of Rome. The burden of his
discourse, was a skilful exhaltation of tra
dition above the Bible, of the Church,
L it. 1 T . ",1 I- . . I
uuuc me reueemcr. raitmui to tlio in
stincts of his communion, he made an onset
upon the only true basis of a spiritual re-
ligion- The prntige of a live bishop, seemed
to give weight to his influence with a com
pany, not overstocked with biblical kuowl
edge. It seemed to bo an hour of peril to
the cause of evangelical truth.
As the service was about to close, one
gentlemen to whom 1 alluded, aud who
gave fixed attention to the bishop's address,
arose, and in a calm but firm manner ex
pressed the interest he had taken, in the
statements of his venerable friend. "But,"
said he" all must bo aware, that quite dif
ferent sentiments are entertained by Bible
Christjuns, as to the topics here discussed;
and if God gives me strength, I will en
deavor, to-morrow night, to exhibit their
views of the matters which have now occu
pied our attention." Tho tone of the speak
er indicated more than his wor'ds.
The company dispersed, some to resume
their gambling occupations, some to the
bar-room, iiomo to renew their oaths and
imprecations, some to discuss tho merits of
the debate thus opened, some to their
berths. The noisy lawyer, strengthened
in vices by anti-scriptual doctrine, renewed
his cups. Standing within a few feet of
the state-room of the bishop, his voice was
heard till a late hour by the unwilling
multitude of would-bo sleepers, in ridicule
of the truth he found iu some Protestant
tracts, and in obscene and vulgar jukes.
Iniquity seemed to have found new license,
and profunity new terms of blasphemy. It
was a miserable night for us all.
On the next evening the company of pas
sengers gathered as by a common impulso
to listen to the promised reply to tho bishop.
Mr. , apparently thinking that thoro
might be an aspect of obtrusiveness in a
voluntary engagement in the debate, ex
pressed his readiness to forego tho oppor
tunity of speaking, if any one of his hearers
desired it. Thus secured in his position,
he announced the hymn. "Come, Holy
Spirit, heavenly Dove," which was sung by
tho assembly with solemnity. He then in
vited his friend from Boston to pray ; and
the rich unction and happy adaptation of
that warm-hearted puritan prayer, contras-
ed with the formal, lifeless prayer "said"
by the bishop, half finished the debate.
Mr. disclaimed all lovo of contro
versy, and avowed his purpose to deal with
principles lying at the foundation of human
obligations and hopes. He entered on tho
discussion less to refute the errors of the
bishop, than to save the bouIs of his hear
ers. Ilo then gave a rapid sketch of the
doctrines and history of tho primitivo
ehnreb , tho rfoe ami influence of popery; !
the efforts of reformers, and the triumphs
of tho truth iu tho 16th centuary, the de
monstrated and substantial unity of the
evangelical churches. Having thus cleared
the way, he planted himself ou the iropreg-
nable ground of D'Aubigue and of Protest
antism : the vord of God only, excluding
tradition ; the grace tf Christ only, strik
ing at the roots of a religion of works; the
work ofthelloly Ghost only, as distinguished
from a religion of external rites ; and un-
folded with the great themes that cluster
around the cross. The application of these
fundamental principles to the church of
Rome, and to the dogmas of the bishop,
was left to each hearer; but the least
intelligent mind could perceive, that if
such were the teachings of Scripture if
"the just Bhall live by faith" then the
whole superstructure of papal superstition
rests on error, and must fall at last. With
out the aspect of controversy, and with
direct bearings on the spiritual state of
those addressed, every leading position of
the bishop was undermined, and evange
lical truth fully vindicated. It only re
mained to dissect the seven pretended
sacraments of the Papal church, which
the bishop proclaimed and defencd ; in
doing which Mr. indulged in the wit
and sarcasm which alone Borne of them de
serve. Ho closed with an appeal to the
conscience, tender and Eolcmn.
The bishop, with less of discretion than
might have been expected from an aged
prelate, attempted to recover bis ground,
by asserting the friendliness of the Papal
church to the Bible, denying that it was a
prohibited book in the Papal states ; also
denying the existence of " indulgences ;"
assailing the credibility of D'Aubigne as
a historian, etc. The issuo being thus
joined, Mr. replied firmly and brought
home to tho bishop's own diocese, the alle
gations which had been general and
indefinite. It was a triumph of the
truth. The "smooth stones" from
Shiloah's brook reached their mark, and
another giant measured his length on the

Kept mm irom tuc cabin. 1 saw no more
gambling. Many of the passengers sought
friendly intercourse with the Protestant
preacher. And when he and his travel
ing companion left the boat, to keep holy
time leaving the bishop to pursue his
journey on the sabbath manv thanks
wero tendered for the timely and effec'
tive refutation of Papal error, sought to be
imposed on a crowd of American Protest
ants. I add but a word to this incomplete
sketch of a steamboat debate.

flict with the man of sin, is " the sword
of the Spirit."

3. It is best so to conduct polemical
discussions, that tho spirit of a true faith
may win confidence for its doctrines, and
so that souls may be saved, even if the
argument bo lost.
4. There is little danger from the Ro
mish church in this couutry, if its bish
ops will consent to discuss its principles in
the newspapers, and in steam boat cabins.
The system will not bear venti lation.
5. " By their fruits ye shall know thein."
The moral tendencies of tho Papal and evan
gelical systems, as seen in the unchecked
vice of a western steamer, after an evening
discourse by a distinguished prelate, and in
the quiet and order produced by an exhi
bition of Gospel truths by an unknown
Protestant, were so palpably demonstrated
as to leave no doubt, which system can
trace its origin to the great Source of wis
dom and purity.
THE PACIFIC'S MAILS.
PROSPECTS OF PEACE.
Russia Accepts the Four Points.
Most Important the Conference at Vienna
the Czar Accepts the Guarantees!
The following are the dispatches on which
tho news respecting the chances of peace
are founded :
"Vienna, Monday. A confrenco was
held yesterday. Princo Gortschakoff an
nounced that having consulted the Emper
or, his master, he was authorized to accept
the interpretation of the four guarantees
as laid down on iho record of the confer
ence of December 28th. Ho has empower
ed and prepared at once to negotiate a peace.
It was stipulated on tho part of the allies
that no cessation of hostilities should in the
meantime take place.''
Vienna, Sunday. In conformity with
instructions received yesterday, Princo
Gortschakoff unreservedly accepted tho
four points as interpreted by the allies,
and confirnttthe acceptance in a conference
which is held to-day.
Paris, Tuesday morning. A telegraphio
despatch from Vienna, private but of guar
anteed authenticity, announces that Russia,
having accepted the four propositions of
the allies, without reserve, and according
to the three powers Buol has invited Franco
and England to proceed to ulterior negoti
ations for the restoration of peace. Tur
key is iuvitcd to send a representative to
NOT ACCErTRD UNCONDITIONALLY.
Tho Paris correspondent of the London
" Sinco the preceeding was written, I
am informed that the English and French
ambassadors at Vienua Lave written to their
governments for the necessary authorization
to enable thcui to cuter into negotiations
with Princo G ortschakoff- It appears that
the Prince has not accepted without re
serve tho guarantee with the interpretation
of the allies, which were communicated to
hhn confidently. The prince lias, I am as
sured, demanded certain changes, which at
first appeared to M. do Buol not to possess
tny importance, but so far they are changesi
and therefore the acceptance is not unre
served. In case of the negotiations failing,
and that nothing is done before the 14th
inst., Austria is bound to chango the pres
ent treaty into a defensive one. Tho opin
ion generally prevails more and more to
concentrate her troops in Podolla and Po
land against Austria."
The official Austrian Corresponded con
firms the telegraphio despatches), and an
nounces, that if the French and English
Cabinets approve of what has occured, ne-
gociations for the conclusion of a solid
peace will soon commence. Another des
patch says, that the representatives of the
four powers, namely, England and France,
Austria and Russia had.themselves come
to a friendly understanding, but the writ
ten approval of their respective govern
ments was considered necessary.
THE FOUR POINTS.
The following are the four points alluded
to it the negotiations :
1. The abolition of the Protectorate of
Russia over the Danubian Principalities,
and the possession of those provinces pla
ced under the collective guarantee of the
2. The free navigation of the mouths of
the Danube secured according to tho prin
ciples established by the Congress of Vicn
3. The revision of the treaty of the 13th
July, 1841, 'in the interest of the balance
of power in Europe.'
4. The abandonment by Russia of her
claim to exercise an official protectorate
over the Christian subjects of the Porto,
(to whatever right they might belong,) in
consideration of the Powers giving their
mutual assistance to obtain from the Sul
tan a confirmation and observance of the
religious privileges of all Christian coiu
The Austrian summons to the Czar em
braced the following additional points, but
it is not believed that they have been urged
by the Western Powers.
Austria, in her final summons to Russia,
demanded no modification of the internal
possessions, and besides the four points,
an indemnification for the war expenses is
to be a basis for futurejropositions.
A future Russian protectorate over the
Pro-Catholio subjects of the Porte, is de
blared inadmissable, as interference with
the Sultan's sovereign rights. The five
powers guarantee the privilege and equal
rights of tho Christians.
The Russian protectorate in the Danu
bian Principalities and in Scrvia is de

guaranteed by the razing of Sevastapool,
and by converting the other arsenals on its

THE present (January) number com
mences the 5th volume, and the 3d year of
Putnam's monthly. In commencing the
undertaking, the publishers were fully a
ware that in a time of immense intellectual
activity, and in a country of great and va
rious literary rivalry, where, in the absenco
of an international copyright, the choicest
works of the best foreign genius are to be
had for ilie taking, the task was not easy,
of founding and sustaining a magazine, at
onco universal in its sympathies, and na
tional in its tone. The continued and in
creasing favor with which the monthly haa
been received, is the be t possible proof
that the task has been iu some degree ful
filled. The new volume of the magazine
commences under the best possible auspi
ces. Its position is now assured. Two
years have demonstrated the extent of its
circle of friends, aud that circle is constant
ly widening. The magazine has not only
the sympathy, but the actual literary sup
port of the most eminent authors in the
country. Tho greatest care is exercis( d iu
the selection of articles for its pages, from
the immense number of rass. received a
number now amounting to more than 181 0.
In so great a press of material to be c n
sidered, the publishers appeal confidently
for patience to all who favor them with
their contributions, while they heartily
thank them for their good will. While care
is taken that nothing in the remotest de
gree offensive to propriety or good taste de-
taces these pages, and the ablest talent is
secured to make a magazine, which, for va
riety ot interest, and excellence of tone,
shall be surpassed by no similar publica
tion in tho world, tho publishers assure tho
publio that their motto is still onward, and
that every year's experience will enable
them more fully to deserve the favor which
they so gratefully acknowledge.
