M a r c y . - We notice with great pleasure the high tribute of respect which waa paid to thia distinguished gentle, man on his late visit to Albany, by citizens of that place, lung'his neighbors and associates and eminent­ ly qualified to judge of his worth. Originating with those who have known him intimately both in public and private relations, and are abls to judge of his merits as a public functionary and as a man, it is a compliment of the highest possible character. Governor Marcy has long occupied a conspicuous position before the people of this state and o( the na­ tion. Whether as our financial officer in tbe state government—*-a justice of the supreme court, Govern­ or and senator in congress; bis duties have ibeen promptly and ably discharged, and with an eye single to the general good. He possesses a strong head and honest heart,— is an excellent scholar and holds a pen of uncommon vigor. With these qualifications, \aided by a rich fund of common sense, he will fill, we venture to predict, the distinguished post he oc. cupies with marked ability, and give strength and character to the administration. Through a long and eventful life he has been a firm and unyielding dcm- .ocrat, and we congratulate our worthy President! and the people Upon this fortunate selection. W e'are aware, as wc pen this hasty article, lhat Gov. Mar. cy’s political orthodoxy has*.been questioned by some •who claim to have filed R specification, in the demo, cratic archives., entitling them to certain* exclusive rights. Bid, inasmuch as democracy was generally in' use. before their patent bears .date, wc have not t bought, jt an objeclioh lhat Governor M. did not agree with their model. - - C e l e b r a t i o n o f t i i e F o u r t h .

Sioo'n thereafter -our. citizens began to throng-'the streets, and to re­ ceive-additions frum abroad through every thorough fare leading into town. The new Bridge across the Chenango,'-consisting as yet merely of timbers,: and the. river-be;ng svvoleri and impassible from recent tain’s,.* had threatened a sad on the eve: riing previous ho mo pf .out spirited citizens congrega­ ted ajwl 'carried by hand and laid down -a plank -path­ way ovijr-.ihp-bridge, so :that .the- -people of the west side were enabled. lo-join .us. • ■ .- , 'Between ten and eleven, the procession was.fyrmcd. .b^-Col.

That as the -preaching of the gospel rs the leading instrumentality in the hand of God for the world’s conversion, it becomes our duly to sustain the living preacher abroad. That the distribution of the Scriptures, and reli­ gious tracts are indispensible auxiliaries, which we are bound to sustain. T h a t tho increased facilities for carrying forward the m issionary w o rk, increase our obligation. That the missionary work in the foreign field is greatly in advance of the work at home. T h e doty of sustaining the monthly concert was presented: and the distribution of tho Herald and Day Spring was urged, as being valuable assistants in carrying on lhe enterprise. These positions were unfolded and pressed upon the conscience with great clearness and Dungency by M csars* A rm strong, Wisner, T h o m p son, C a n n o n Scuddcr, Riley and Slocum.
