'Chic Eastern Question in the Pulpit.?
We are informed by a morning paper, that,
"in a highly interesting missionary sermon, at
Wesley Chapel, on Sunday morning, Rev. Dr.
Durbin showed that the war now in progress
between Turkey and Russia had its origin in a
religious policy on tho part of the Czar, who is
apprehensive that1 toleration ' by the Turkish
Government of all Christian creeds may en
oourage a thinking and investigating spirit,
which may extend to tho heart of bis domin
ions, and thus imperil the stability of his em
pire. In other words, that when individuals
shall become enlightened as to their political
and religious rights, they will not be reluctant
to assert them, if need be, by ' weapons' that
are ' carnal' Hence the anxiety of the ' Auto
crat of all the Russias' to secure himself, as far
as practicable, against such a catastrophe."

A beautiful Engraving in each Number.
THE LIVING AGE has been abundantly honored
by the approbation of the bost judgea, it hat
been pronounced to be sound and vigorous; various
and entertaining; full of spirit and life; uniting the
qualities which gratify tho soholar, the philosopher,
and the man of business, with those which recom
mend it to their wives and childron. We shall now
endeavor to add to those intrinsic excellences the
greater attractions of Art, and, boginning with 1854,
Every Number will contain an Impression from
a beautiful Steel Plate.
The 52 Plates a year will alone be worth the price
of subscription.
This work is made up of the elaborate and statelj
essays of the E4inburgh, Quarterly, and other Re
views; and HLtckwooti * noble criticisms on poetry,
his keen political commentaries, highly wrought
tales, and vivid descriptions of rural and mountain
scenery; and the contiibutions to literature, history,
and common life, by the sagacious Spectator, the
sparkling Examiner, the judicious Athena urn, the
busy and industrious Literary Gazette, the sensible
and comprehensive Britannia, the sober and respect
able Christian Observer ; these are intermixed with
the military and naval reminiscencos of the United
Service, and with the best articles of the Dublin Uni
versity, New Monthly, Fraser's, Thit's, Ainswortk's,
Hoo/t's, and Syortmg Magazines, and of Chambers
admirable Journal. We do not consider it beneath
our dignity to borrow wit and wisdom from Vanck ;
and, whon we think it good enough, make use of the
thunder of The Pimes. Wo shall increase our vari
ety by importations from tho continent of Europe,
and from th? new growth of the British colonies.
THE LIVING AGE is published every Saturday,

" If any State deems the retail and intornal traffic
in ardent spirits injurious to iui citiieus, and calcu
lated to produce idleness. vice, or debauchery. 1 nee
nothing in the Constitution of tbo United State* to
prevent it from regulating or restraining the traffic,
or from prohibiting it altogether, if it thinlu proper."
? Chief Justice Ta in y.
ON or before the lot of January, 1854, the Execu
tive Committee of the New York State Temper
ranee Society will Issue the first number of a Month
ly Temperance Journal, under the titlo of" 111 1'ko
hi bh'Ihnint."
Its Sizb?It will be printed on a double medium
sheet, making eight quarto page*, of four columns to
a ptge; and,excluding advertisements, each number
will contain an amount of reading matter e<|ual at
least to that furnished by our largcr sixed daily jour
nals, or to that of an ordinary duodecimo volume of
150 pages.
Its Object.?To advocato the Causa of Temper
ance generally, and especially the Legislative Prohibi
tion of the Traffic in lutoxicating Beverage, to pre
paro the minds of the masses for such Prohibition, by
showing its expediency and Necessity, and to secure,
by all the influence it may legitimately exert, the
vigorous enforcement of Prohibitory Laws when ob
tamed.
Its Fiut.n.?Dealing with general principles with
arguments alike applicable to evory community where
tha traffic exists and with facts illustrative of these
arguments and principles, tho paper will bo National
in its spirit, in its s.'ope, in its purposo, and, we trust,
it will bo Nationtil in its circulation and influence.
Such is our aim and expectation. Wo desire to see
tho Principle of Prohibition established in Stnte after
State, till it becomes tho recognised policy of the Na
tion. It in our ambition to bear a part in this great
work, and to this end The Prohibitionist is estab
lished, not as tho organ of n society merely, but of a
Great Rkhohmatoky Movkmknt.
Ith Nkckshity.?Tho existing Tompcrance Jour
nals have littlo, if any, circulation outsido of tho Tom
porance Ranks. Their price almost uocessurily re
stricts them to tho friend* of the cause. Tiik Pro
hibitionist is designed for circulation (instead of
tracts) among the indifferent and the hostile. For
this purpose it is put, at n price so low as to enable
tho friends of Temporanco in every school district, by
combined action and at an inconsiderable expense,
to place a copy in each family that will consent to ro
coivo it.
Irs PaicB.?One copy for one year - - $0 60
Three, to one address, one yoar 1 00
Seven do. do. - - 2 00
And for oach additional four copies, $1.00 will bo
added, for any quantity less than fifty copics.
For fifty copios to one address - ? $11 00
For 100 do. do. - - 20 00
No subscription received for less than ono year,
and in every case the order must be accompanied by
the money.
The paper will be undor the general direction of
the Executive Committee, who have received ample
assurances of literary aid from not a few of the ablest
and most eminent writers in the temperance ranks
throughout the Union. j
The work will be stereotyped, and hack numbors
can be supplied to now subscribers at any timo during
the year. "
All ordors should bo addressed to 0. Scovill, Pub
lishing Agent, Albany.
Communications for tho paper, or in relation to tho
interests of th? cause generally, should be directed to

ted States to give the above one insertion in their
columns. To all who comply with this roquest, we
will send the Prohibitionist for one yeur, without an

To those persons who may visit Washington, and
are in want of a boot that cannot bo excelled, either
in quality tir workmanship, *u would eall their atten
tion to the card of Henry Jn nney, to ho found mirier
the head of '? Washington." A handsome and neat'
ly-mude boot is not at. all times a source of pleasure
to the wearer, but often one of extreme torture ; this
is caused by the bungling manner jn which the boot
is lilted to the foot. Mr. Januey has devoted much
of his time in studying the construction of the human
loot, in order to ascertain how a boot should bo out
and fitted, that will be perfectly easy to all parts of
tho foot. In this ho has succeeded, so that it matters
not what maybe the shape of. or the number of corns
on the foot, his boot is perfectly cany. Thus he has
combinod beauty with comfort.
