It is our great pleasure to chion icle anything of interest occurring in the neighborhood of old ''Greersburgh :" Enon Valley Camp Meeting. The camp meeting at Enon Valley was brought to a close yesterday morning. As we slated a few days ago the meeting was a decided success. About one hundred and fifty persons in all professed conversion, many, of whom became members of the various churches in ibe district. The meeting was under the direction of the Rev. D. P. Mitchell, presiding elder, who was assisted by a large number of minis- ti rs from the vicinity, and from abroad, During the course of tho meeljng, the best of older prevailed,- and many belonging to the various branches of the christian church participated in the services from day to day We continue our report of the clergymen who preached, together wiib the texts on whch their sermons weie founded : Aug. 22 Jve.

It is contemplated to hold another meeting next year, at, or about, the same locality. j (' )" The Dodge Bepaiiated. The Iowa State, Democrat, a Buchanan 'paper, days; " ."

'. ' j How Mr. Beecher riws it.. Henry Ward Be'echer has made-a speech, in which he gives his views of the working of the great Atlaniio wires. Some of his thoughts are cogent, as others act witty. lie is thus reported in the N..Y. Tribunal v . .'' Out mark one thing; while this, wire will in the first instance work toward monopoly, m the second and main in stance it will work toward diffusion and the common veal : for. thongh merchants and politicians will in the first instance be -the users, yet in the main the people will be the ones .that will reap the ben efits." If it were possibla for knowledge to be confined to a few if it were pos sible for. monopolist to lock up the ends of this wire, it might be disastrous to the people and to Governments; but now it has a tendency to make knowledge co extensive with the globe for what is known inXondon in tlie morning, will bo known here before the morning. What is spoken at 12 in London will be known to us at 8 according to our time, and the enterprises of all the commercial centers and political capitals of tho world, will be known to us in less than an hour s time; and when revolutions shall move the old kingdoms, when these throes begin to be felt, in one hour we shall feel the same aDDrchensions and torments, it is no longer in her own bosom that France can keep her secrets. It is no longer in the old British isles that their knowledge can be confined it is flashed over the world The globe will have but one ear, and that ear will be every where. , Now, this instantaneou&ness of know) edge, this diffusion of knowledge, so that all men are brought together this is for the benefit of the common people, this is what gives them power to enlarge the minds that God gave them, and by which they will be greater than ever dynasties will be. I dare scarcely any longer think of what shall be. I remember the dens ion with which Whitney's plan of a rail road to the Missis&ipi was-hailed. I remember when it was disputed whether a steamer could cioss the ocean or not. All these marvels, Avhen they first were proposed to us, seemed incredible, but one by one they have been executed, and now I am prepared to believe almost anything If a man proposed to communicate with the moon, I should no longer think he was moon-struck; all I ask is that the story shall bo biff enough. Laughter and ap plause. rHre some boys began to im itate the crowing of a cock, when Mr. Beecher said, I am not quite prepared for that, for I did cot know that it was so near morning. Great laughter. Fellow citizens, before I give way to those whom your more desiie lo hear your own townsmen and friends let me say one other thing, I do not say it be cause of my profession, but because I think it. The facility of our intercourse is hot to be over-estimated, but we" must not under estimato the power of our na tion. You may put a cable in every seaport, you may build your ware-houses where they stand five stories or fifteen, and you may fill them with the costliest merchandise ; you may. increase your science and skill lo any extent, yet you are not more powerful, for power is not in the material texture, but power remains in the man, in the individual, the family, the village the State, and nation ; these are (tys reservoirs of power, and while we are enlarging the sphere of action let us see that at home we spread our common schools, multiply our news papers, and make books more plenty than the leaves, so that each man will be an actor, and, when all men over the globe are actors, when from the rising of the sun to the going down of the same, there is no barrier to free mteicourse oi thought, and there is also one current of heart, love, virtue, religion, then the earth will have blossomed and consummated its history. England.' Here are a number of facts in a portable form which may interest pur readers : Since 1559, when the present Protes tant Churchuf England was firmly estab lished by Queen Elizabeth, the majority of the peopled England have been Protestants, ihe Koman Uathohcs are believed at present to be less than one million of the population. Tha adherents of the Church of England form about one half of the population. The most nu merous classes of Protestant dissenters are ;-the original connexion of Wesley an Methodists, the Independents, or Con gregationalists, the Particular Baptists.- The Protestant Episcopal Unurch is es lablishcd by law, and her two archbishops and 24 of her bishops pave seats in the Hous of Lords, The government of England is a lim ited or constitutional monarchy, heredi tary in the Goelph family, or house of Hanover, who acceded to the throne on the death of Queen Ann, the last of the Sluart family, in 1714. The legislature coneists of three bodies, whose united consent is required to give force to their enactments. 1. lbe sovereign ; z. A House of Lords of about 430 members, with hereditary membership and titles; and a House of Commons, elected, at least once in seven years, by the people. This constitution was established at the revolution of 1689, since which time it has not been altered, except in 1832, when, by the Refoim Bill, the election of the House of Commons was placed chiefly in the power of the middle classes. The House of Commons consists of 658 members: 500 from England, 105 from Ireland 53 from Scotland chosen mostly by householders paying a yearly rent of dlO or upwards They have the control pf the public purse, which places the ef fective power in their hands, This con stitution, with religions toleration; a free press, trial by jury, the hapfas corpus act, and freedom of trade, give the1 British people an extent of liberty not enjoyed by any other nation of the great coi tinent. ' Conversion of one of the Foxes. We learn thai Miss Margaret Fox, one of the notorious "Fox Family(". the origina tor of that humbuaf of humbugs, ' Spirit- iiajism,'' has joined herself to the Roman 'p..,..i:' m, .,. N. V.n-t . 'Tip well;' the rul is from one superstition to another. Horace Grcely, of the Tri bune, it is I stated in the public prints, "stood by Miss Fox the whole time" of the ceremony cf initiation. 'Is he exam ining the "way of the going in of the gate," with a view of knocking at it some day ? ,v ,. Strange. Murder and Suicide. We cut from the Cleveland Herald the following particulars of the suicide, on Monday, of Mrs. Williams, of Pittsfield, Lorain county, after laving murdered a deaf and dumb child, her daughter by hanging her: N We cot some additional particulars relative the above sad occurrence from a gentleman who has just returned from Pittsfield, and is well informed upon the matter. The tragedy occurred on Mon day evening the 9th inst.j the settlement ot toe uivorce caso iuua umco uu mo same day. Mrs. Williams had filed her bill against her husband giving for cause cruelty and neglect of duty, and the sym pathy oi the entire neiguoornooa ana a neighborhood secona to none tor respect ability was .with her, as her husband, Benjamin Williams, is a shiftless, dissi pated man. Mrs. Williams was a woman resnected bv all who knew her, but on the Monday referred to, chatges of gross immorality were made against her, and witnesses were said to be ready to prove tbem.and the nature of such charges were, if proved against her, such as to defeat her application for divorce. Under this state of things she withdrew her divpae case receiving from Williams lorty aoi lars in money, a promise for four hundred and sixty dollars more and a deed for fifty acres of land for the benefit of the deaf and dumb girl. This deed was drawn but remained in Ihe hands of William's lawver. Tho belief of the neighbors now is, that Mrs. Williams waa the victim of a conspiracy, and after she had settled the suit, her agony of mind at the posi lion she was placed in drove her to the perpetration of tho terrible crime. Thp body of the deaf and dumb daugh ter wis found hanging: by the neck, anu the feet tied to. the rounds of a chair; if her feet had been free they would have touched the floor. Mrs. Williams used a sheet for the purpose, tearing it in two hanging the daughter with one half and herself with the other half; A neighbor saw Mrs. Willliams, early in the morning hanging dead at the corner of the houce The family with whom Mrs. Williams was living were all away Irom home, ex cent a child of perhaps four or five years. This child says that in the night she got up and saw the deaf and dumb girl "a swinging in the back room, that Mrs Williams took the deaf and dumb girl down, and put her in bed wiih this little child, and that the deaf and dumb gir "felt cold." This, of course, is a child's story, but it is supposed that perhaps Mrs. Williams dtil take the body down and put it in the child s bed, so as to in duco the child again to go to sleep. Four letters were found, written, as is supposed, by Mrs. Williams, as they were in her band writing, but unsigned. One was directed to L D. Rose, one to Benjamin Williams, one to Charles Can field, and another to Daniel Williams or Mrs. Norton. The letter lo Rose, was not read before the Coroner's jury, for prudential reasons, and in this connection we may mention that a warrant has been issued against Rose. The contents of the letter to Rose, although not given to the jury, was in effect that he had been the means of ruining her. The letter to Daniel Williams or Mrs Norton gavo di rections as to her burial, telling them to take money from her trunk for the pur pose. The verdict of the Coroner's Jury was that the deaths wercT produced by the hands of Mrs. Williams. The funeral of the two was on Thursday, and called to gether an immense concourse of people, Williams was in Brooklyn when his wife and daughter were hanged, and went borne as soon as he learned of their death, remaining there to the funeral. , This Campaign. ' So far as our local experience goes, we object entirely lo one peculiarity of the present campaign," to wit : That " edi tors," not " candidates," are to do the fighting for the edification of the crowd In theory we are aware that candidates are selected to discharge the duties ot certain public offices. 1 his will all pe right enough a few months hence, but in the meantime, it the public insist upon being amused, who so suitable to crack jokes over and fight an occasional dog . I M f t , ' Dgiu, ii sncn are necessary,; as your public servants these same candidates. At least we entirely object to their stand ing around the ring, while we poor editors have to act the part of Tom Hyer and Jack' Morrissey. Tho profits of the Sheriff and Prothon6tary"'s offices, $3000 a year and porquisites of Congress ; or even $700 and stealings al llarrtBburg, might make this endurable under, an Au gust sun, and tho thermometer at blood heat, but to go through all this without any of the honors, profits or emoluments, is not to be endured. It is true, we have not suffered so much as our neighbors, but then a fellow feeling makes us take op the cudgel in their behalf. The only reason we can understand why we editors have been pitched into the ring, is because the candidates of the other parties have not yet been named. But the Democracy to-day are to select their .champions of the ring. And this day week all the odds and ends rep rbsented by ihe True Press are to name theirs. , Criers make proclamationOh yez oh vez. Be it known to all men but especially to you, Moorehead, McKnight, Penney, roster, et al., Jiraham, Arm strong, Zacheus et al., that from and after the 25th inst., we the editors of the city of Pittsburgh, will not longer continue to fight your battlos, and amuse Ihe fancy gentlemen around the ring unless you by good and sufficient instruments, to bs prepared by counsel learned in law, shall execute and deliver to as, the said editors, all the right, title, interest and claim, of vnu. me saiu canaiuaiea id we curiam offices of trust, profit, honor and emolu ments, including the perquisites and steal ings there unto attached, to be by us re ceived aud held to our own private use and benefit,' - Of nil which you wil lake due and proper notice. fJPiit. Jour. ,. . , A few days since, as two ; men named I'rrar and Tucker were playing ''crack loo," in Dadeville, Ala., the latiergave the former the lie, when Farrer struck him in the neck Villi a Itnife, ' severing' the Jugular vein, and causing instant death. Great Eank Kobbery-$86,000 Stolen. The Hatter's Bank at Bethel, Conn., was robbed of $86,000 between Saturday night, and Monday Morning last. Mon day when the Cashier went to open the vault he found that one of the bolls could nol be moved, but as the same thing had happened before he went to work to get the bolt drawn and the doer open, and succeeded about two o'clock in the after noon, when the burglary, before unsus pected, was discovered, the roooeri had entered Ihe Bank night after night, cat a hole through the floor of the direc tors room, replacing the pieces, ana oy immense labor succeeded in penetrating under the floor of, and into the Burglar proof vault, picking Ihe heavy masonry out from the bottom. The labor is sup posed o have occupied ten days, or rather niffhts. and the traces of their operations so carefully concealed, ihe carpet on the floor removed and replaced, that they ac complished it without discovery. Twenty thousand dollars in smalt owis were left untouched. Of Ihe monay sto len between $8,000 and $7,000 was in specie, the remainder in bills on the Hat ter s bank. A telegraphic dispatch from New York says that the robbers are known, aud that the affair is being arranged in a manner satisfactory to both parties, ihe rob. bers are said to be professional burglars. Awful Garpner." A large camp meeting was held at Portchester, N. Y. last week, and among those who took a prominent part m the services was "Aw ful Gardner," the converted pugilist. J! letter from the camp says : . " Mr. Orville Gardner, alias "Awful Gardner," was he centre of attraction. Every body4?a' for Gardner, and in tense anxiety-mas manifested bv the mul titude to hear him speak. He resides at Portchester with, his mother and brother Tho latter has aiso recently been convor ted, and was as active in exhorting as "Awful." Their business is that of shoe making. Judging from Mr. Gardner's notoriety as a piofessional fighter, I was prepared to see a gross, anunai, uncuiti vatcd man : but on the contrary, his or ganization is compact and comparatively lefined. and although nol a pleasing spea Iter, yet he uses language with correctness and freedom, while the earnestness, sin. cerity, and humility of his .demeanor cap tivate ihe hearer and win his confidence. He v. as dressed in a fine suit of black and looked well. Thb Fatal Heat in India. Tho heat of the summer in India is said to be the most severe known for a quarter of a century. The correspondent of the Lon don Times says : All over the North West the troops are being housed, and operations cease until the fierce heat lias a little abated. The sun has been more deadly than the enemy. As if to try the endurance of ihe Englishmen to the utmost, the season has been such as has not been known since 1833.' Those who know Bengal, will understand it, when I say, that on the 15th inst., one clergyman in Calcutta buried forty-eight Englishmen, chiefly sailors. In one ship, the captain, chief mate, and twenty-six men had all appo plexy at once. Nine men from Fort William buried one morning from the' same cause tier Aiaiesty s linn, at uar- rackpore, who were nearly all under cov er, and who are most carefully looked af ter, have two hundred men unfit for duty, from immense boils, All over the country, paragraph after paragraph announces the deaths of so many rr e '. at such a place from appoplexy. Fortunately the rains are setting in, and in a month it will be comparatively cool. New CutnciiES. The Birmingham M. E. Church, commenced last fall by ReV. H. D. Fisher, now of Leavenworth City, Kansas, is almost ready for dedica lion. It is a beautiful brick edifice, with a fine steeple, and locnted on one of the most eligible sites in that borough. Rev. G. A. Lowman. the present pastor, is superintending Ihe work. The new As bury Chapel M. E. Church is rising as if by magic. The brick work of the first story is completed. This building will have the largest audience room, with one exception, of any Methodist Church in tho city.. The pastor, JKev. W. A. Bell, though in feeble health, is doing much toward this great undertaking. 1 he Du quesne Borough. M. E. Church, under the efficient management of Rev. James Mills, who has pastoral charge, is pro gressing finely. The stonework of the basement is nearly completed, and ample provision has been made for the early finishing of ihe stiuclure, at a cost of about three thousand. dollars. The build ing is 43 by 53, two stories high. i ,ati Terrible Hail Storm- A hail storm in Livingston' connty, I'll lately came with such torce as to prostrate crops ana shrubbery, and even striking don cattle and men; the hail stones being seven in ches in diameter, and sharp as cut ice. Thousands of acres of corn were cut to the earth, orchards were stripped, gardens, despoiled and fields of wheat and oats ruined. One man in Dwight Township lost two hundred and forty acres of corn, and five hundred and fifty acres or wheat, and one hnndrcd and ten acres of oats. Scarcely a pain of glass is left, and sashes and roofs were split, gashes wr re cut in the hides of cattle, and one man is laid up and severely injured by the bail. , , Sao. A few days ago, Mrs. Stevens, wife of O. Sicveus, Esq., an old and re spected citizen of Oregon, Township; re: siding about one and half miles from Yondota, on ihe road to Woodvillo, was frightened by the actions of a horse Mr. S. was driving, and jumped from the buggy, breaking one of her legs nSar the ankle. Unfortunately mortification ensued, and the lady died on Sunday last. Toledo uiaue, ., . :. . , JC7Hon. L. Keitt, in his last speech at WillianriBion, South Carolina, is report ed to have said : . 1 ' ' ' - ' , V The Democratic party he thought, was sounder now than it had been for years. It was so because the south was now the majority in that pnrtyt and had driven off from il numbers of the timid, tainted and feeble members of the North. He would not predict, but in. his judgment the Black Republicans would win the election in 1800, Pulpit Prayer. Does this subject receive the attention due lo its importance I Is sufficient ef fort made to awaken interest in this part of public service! Is it enough, if Ihe heart of the minister is in tune, ana nis prsyeFgush forth from Ihe depths of de vout sincerity! While we wonld recoil from lbe idea of carefully prepared, mem orized prayers, does it follow that all the previous thought snouia oe given to me sermon, while the petitions of the pulpit may be the promptings of more sponta neousnesa t If an earnest preacher would leave his sermon lo be entirely dependent on the fertility and forvency of the hour, have not the people, in waiving a liturgy made him responsible for conducting their devotions as well as he can I Is it not an objoct worthy of effort, to infuse into them variety, and stimulate thinking t ' The utterance of generalities is not very . ira- pressive, ana wnen me uivine messing is asked on "all for whom it is our duty to pray," it is surely not the best method of obeying the upostie s exnoriauon, inai "prayers be made for all men." In the general departments ot prayer- adornation, confession, petion, thanksgiv ing were it not better to dwell long enough on one of these, to make a clear, strong impression, than to pnss briefly over them all? Will not more vividness and power be thus imparted to the dif ferent aspects of devotional truth T And when, leaving himself and his tew tellow worshipers, the minister looks out on the world of humanity, he knows that ihe re alization of facts must precede sensibility m regard to them, and that many ot his hearers live in narrow spheres. And why not take this method of making it a living recollection, that their habitual privileges are lights in the darkness of human his tory', that to have civil liberty, a free Bible, a Sabbath, a living ministry, are not at all matters of course in this world 7 Why not select, time after lime, some class of suffering humanity, and holding up their condition, positive and negative, before the eye of the peoplo,- awaken for them a real interest, a more than momen tary prayer that God will help thera? The poor of large cities, breathing the atmosphere of all evil ; the poor of rular districts, in their Sunday isolations: the sailor, with the ties so severed that help to make manhood ; the victims of civil oppression: the souls crushed under spiritual despotism; the debased devotees of idolatry 1 Would not the habit of touching skillfully tbe spring, stimulate the pulse of christian, benevolence making it beat more evenly,healhfully,vigorously ? Religion, its enemies themselves confoss, is in its moral code, holy, just, and good. In its doctrine it is dignified and glorious ; in its tendency it is pure and peaceful, gentle, and easy to entreat ed ; full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. The celebrated Montesquieu remarks: "The christian religion, which ordains that men should love each other, would, without doubt, have every nation blest with the best political and civil laws; because these, next to religion, are the greatest good that men can give and receive. Spirit of Laws, Lond. edit,, vol. 1, p. 72. Our Hone. Rejoice in hope Of the glory of God. Romans, v : a. What ! Is it possible for one who has fightings without and fears within to re joice? Yes; says the Apostle, "We rejoice in hope of the glory of God. Heing justified by laitli we have pence with God,' and are adopted into his family. being thus adopted we are his children. Being his children' we are his heirs; joint heirs with Christ, and the glory cf God is our inheritance. We have it not yet; but we rejoice in hope of it. This is the hope which is as an anchor to the soul, both sure and steadfast, that entereih within the vail, where the glory of God is manifested, Hope implies more than desire. When we both desire and expect then we hope. Added to our longing for heaven, we must have then an assurance that we shall enjoy it, in order to expe rience a well-grounded hope of glory. The anchor must take a fast hold in its wave-covered home, and by a good cable must be attached to the billow-rocked vessel ;'eo our hope must be a strong, living, sure connection between our soul and heaven.' It is the glory of God that makes heaven desirable. " "S"""1" the cily that needs not that the sun or the moon to shine in it. ''We rejoice in hope of the glory of God." Christian Advo cate.

During two awful winters in the region of eternal ice, the efficacy of Braoo's Arctic Liniment, as a cure for scurvy, was fairly put lo the proof; ,and when it is understood .that the late Dr. Kane was the person who tested it, no one will doubt that the ordeal was a searching one. .

Death of Prince Demidoff. The Princo Antinole Demidoff, Russian Min ister to Tuscany, well known for his im mense wealth,. for his great learning, fw his historical woiks on Russia, and as the husband of tho Prince3 Matilda Bonaparte, from whotn be lived separated, had just died- at Turin. The Prince's wealth was chiefly invested in the silver and diamond mines of. Russia. He owned and worked, some years ago, seventy-five thousand serfs. The sum he was obliged to pay the Princos Matilda annualy, for her sus tenance, was fifty thousand roubles, about forty thousand dollars. When the Em pire was declared in France,, and the J Princes Matilda took the position of, first lady of the imperial family, she tvas asked lo renounce thit) income and to receive one in common with the members of the imperial family from the French treasury. But tho Princess refused, because Bhe regarded the silver mines of her husband as of more certain duration than the Em pire in France. It is said that the Prin cess continues to live upon the forty thou sand dollars furnished her by the act of her husband, and refuses to take a sou from the Frenoh treasury. Queer. There is a remarkable negro boy in Polk county, Texas. He has two faces, fixed on opposite parts of the head, with mouth, nose and chin, ho perfect that it is impossil le to tell whiihii the from ftcO when the body is hid from view. He is about six years old, healthy, of a very sound mind, runs and plays among other children with as much sprightliness as could be expected from one of his age.- . Robert Dale Owen, the American Minister at Naples, writes a letter to the New York Freeman's Journal, denying tho report that he had become a Catholic.
