Christmas Evans. We learn by the Londo?i Christian Ad vocate, that this eminent servant of God died at Swansea, South Wales, the 20th July last. On Sabbath, July 15th, he preached twice in the Welsh Baptist meeting-house, and on Monday evening at the English Baptist meeting-house, with al most as much bodily and mental energy, as he had been wont to display twenty years ago. After he had retired to rest, Monday evening, he had an attack of what was supposed to be erysipelas. On Wed nesday he-was better, and on Thursday walked out, but in the evening he had alarming symptoms, and in the night grew worse. He exulted with holy triumph in the prospect of eternal glory, and his end was peace, joy and triumph. lhe news of his death flew as on the wings of the wind, and on the following Monday, one of the largest assemblies ev er seen on suh an occasion in.Swansea, evinced iheir last mark of high respect and veneration, by coming from great dis tances to accompany the remains of this devoted servant of God to their long resting-place. Christmas Evans was of the Baptist de nomination, and has made Christ crucified the grand theme of his ministry 53 years.

The har vest in England, Scotland, and Ireland, by the last accounts, hs been secured in fine order ; and in the United States, tak ing the wheat and corn crops generally, they have far exceeded several previous years.

On Tuesday last we counted a string oi wagons loaded with it which seemed like the procession of a caravan, and this is a paltry item in the list of arri vals. We have an extensive butter-making country in the county of Oneida, and it seems as if it was emptying itself into Ulica. The design, no doubt, is to ship it to New York. If in other parts of the State it is thus brought on to the canal for shipment, the market to which it is golno- will be glutted, and the prices must fall, or we shall be greatly mistaken.

"Though born arnids' slavery he detest ed it. Often did my hea 1 1 exult at the deep love of liberty which he felt. It was in htm, though young, a pure and lovely flame, put it consumed him. The thought that the members of my church would set their people free overcame him. When he heard that all had agreed, he drew me a ship in full sail, with liberty on her fUg, closing two slavers, and on her pendant, "Slavery must fall." Ho bounded avay with a heart too full. That night the ie ver took him andduring his delirium the same feeling formed all his thoughts, and was all his converse. In his lucid inter vals he spake of Jesus, earnestly prayed to be accepted through his precious b'ood, and I believe was heard in these accents for pardon. Thus died my brightest earth ly hope nt the age of twelve years." From the Emancipator. Able to Support Themselves When Mr. Joseph Sturge, of England, was in this city on his way from the West Indies to England, he made the following statements : In Jamaica a proprjrtor told him that it was considered a good day's work for a slave to clear 70 or SO coffee trees of weeds, with a hop, but by paying task work under the apprenticeship system, a man and woman cleaned 500 trees in a day, and a boy 250 trees in one instance ! So much for free over slave labor. Mr. Sturge said that during his stay in tho West Indies he did not see a single neoTo intoxicated, and a practitioner of medicine told him thatduring all his prac tice he had never seen a negro woman drunk.

The fall has been fine, and vast quantities of butter have been made; and with all the exporiation there will be an abundance left behind to reduce the price below 18 cents in the winter. Should the high prices be main tained for any considerable length of time, organizations will be formed for non-con sumption, as was the case in Philadelphia and oiher places in the winter of 1836. Butter is not a necessary ; strictly, it is a luxury, and by far too much of it is con sumed for health ; and let an extensive re trenchment in this article be but partially adopted, which we strongly advise, and the poor as well as the rich may propor- tionablv enjoy it. The consideration of the poor is a duty devolving upon all, par ticularly those whose circumstances ad mit of an unlimited indulgence in things termed luxurious, and a moderate retrench ment on the part of such, will do as much to aid the poor, in a season like this, to a share in common comforts, as liberal con tributions in money.

The quantity of Flour arriv ed at tide water by the Erie Canal from the 15th of April to the 1st of November inst. was 838,994 barrels, and the quantity of Wheat 482,473 bushels being an ex cess over the receipts of the same period last year equal to 301,631 barrels, or an increase of 47 1-3 per cent. Lrge quan tities of wheat, it is said, still remain in the hands of the western farmers, and that the millers have come to the determination to suspend business rather than pay the high prices at present asked for it. Such a step wilP doubtless bring down the price. lb. Grhat Fire in Liverpool.

This is an important consideration, and it should be allowed due weight. The ' style of the work merits particular com- mendation; While plain and unostenta tious, it is chaste and perspicuous. Tha faithfulness of the author, in his notes on those passages of Scripture which have reference to the subject ol baptism, should commend the work to every member of our denomination. We trust that the ne- riod is not far distant, when a copy of it will be found in every Baptist familv in the United States. Joseph S. Bakes. Thomas Hume. . Norfolk, Vir., August 1 1, 1833. From Re. J. A. Warne, Editor of iLe Compre hensive Commentary. The author has fulfilled his promise of affording assistance to teachers and Bible Class pupils, without doing for them the work ot studying their lessons. It may not seem proper to institute comparisons between Ripley and Barnes; and yet I will just sny, that Professor Ripley is, in my judgment, by far the safer, the more modest, and the less ostentatious guide ; and I cannot but wish he were adopted universally, in placa of Barnes, in our Sabbuih Schools. Joseph A. Warns Philadelphia, August 15, 1838. From tha Biblical Repository, Andorrr, Map.. There are three things in these Notes '. which have given us much satisfaction ; first, the kind and catholic spirit every where manifest second, the labor is be stowed upon the really difficult texts third, the practical reflections are few and to the point. Froio Zion't Advocate Portland. These Notes breathe throughout the spirit of fervent piety ; and he who reads them will be improved in piety as well as in knowledge. We cordially recommend this work to all engaged iu Sabbath School or Bible Class instruction, and to beads of families who canr.ot purchase more ex pensive works.
