A Beneficent Statute. The last
Legislature of this State passed an act, (see Laws
of 1859, page 765,) empowering any number of citi
zens, not less than ten nor more than one hundred,
to organize themselves into a body corporate " for
the purpose of apprehending horse thieves and
other felons," and investing each member of such
body when engaged in making an arrest, with the
powers of a constable.
The mode of organization is simple, and can be
attended with but slight expense ; the constitution
nd by-laws of the corporation, and the terms of
membership, so far as contributions and action are
concerned, are fixed by the members themselves
by majority votes.
As the southern counties of this State and the
toorthern of Indiana, are again the field of opera
lions for the organized banditti of felons, whom
ibe ordinary agencies. of the law have hitnerto
failed to effectually reach, we suggest to our citi
tens, liable to be, swindled by counterfeit money,

OPINION OF THE ENGLISII PRESS.
"We have read Mr. 11. S. Brown's 'Lectures'
with much satisfaction. Mr. Brown knows how
to speak to the people.' lie has almost every
qualification for it, it we may judge from Lis
printed addresses. There is no maudlin sentimen
tality about him ; but all is healthful as the breeze
on the hill. There is no clap-trap ; he is both too
honest and too earnest for that. There is neither
a Pharisaic scorn of vice, nor any cffciuiuate
apoligiziug for it, bat a wise Christian man's
righteous hatred of it, who knows how to look on
those who are sin-degraded as his brethren. He
speaks to the people almost as one of themselves,
onlv from a higher level ; and, though he uses their
daily phrases, yet he dots not thereby pander to
vulgarity. lie has a happy acquaintance with our
homely common sense proverbs; and employs them
tellingly. There is no affectation of extraordinary
'concern far the poor or their ' souls ;' but there
is that real manly concern which can afford to dis
pense with profession, and to express itself chiefly
in calm but brave and sensibly earnest endeavours.
The proverb, 'Much cry and little wool,' you may
reverse in his case. His true desire to benefit the
people is partly shown by the pains with which he
collects and prepares the statistics of vice, poverty,
disease, Ac, in order that his well marshalled facts
may preach to the understanding. The genuineness
of his earnestness is evidenced dv the cheerfulness
with which it toils along the highway of common
sense. He has no recourse to reckless, undiscrimi
nating charges, and is too strong for exaggeration.
Truth is enough for him ; would that this were no
distinction I While he faithfully touches the worst
vices. 3-ct you never feel that the censor himself
must have a coarse taste or prurient imagination.
These Sunday afternoon lectures are not ' sermons,'
nor intended to be. In them he grapples with
acknowledged evils; but still, while opening the
eyes of the people to the real nature of much of
what their daily life too often is, and showing what
it might be, he" is never ashamed of the Gospel of
Christ, nor chargeable with even seeming to let
them go away with the impression that anything
else, and not the kingdom of heaven, is the first
thing to be sought. In Mr. Brown we have a man
who, we should iudze. can afford to iro where any
-classes of God's creuturts are domesticated, for he
is stroii a: and his strength is hcly." Monthly

and suitably illustrated with Maps and Portraits
has just been published by G. G. Evans (the original
Gift Book Publisher) of Philadelphia, at the low

on what grounds ' she bases her expectancy of a
glorious Future, with this view the author, who has
traveled largely through Europe, and has resided
for a considerable period in Milan, with visits to
the other great cities of Italy, describes places with
which she is acquainted, and personages whom she
intimately knew. The statistics of the various
Stats now engaged in hostilities, arc given, with
biographical sketches of the Sovereigns generally,
and Statesmen, whom the war has thrown into
prominency. A great deal of personal anecdote is
introduced, which very much adds to the spirit and
acceptability of the work. The causes of the war
are fully and fairly developed, and there is appen
ded an authentic account of the war itself op to the
present time, including the official reports of the
various battles, and the chivalrous exploits of
General Garribaldi, the gallant Guerrilla leader.
