A New Work edited by the Rev. J. HARRIS, D.D.
Now Ready 64 pages, Demy Quarto, price 1s., Part 1., of
a Series of Services for Domestic Worship, for every Morning and Evening in the year, Select Portions of Holy writ, and Prayers and Thanksgivings for Particular Occasions, with an address to Heads of Families. Edited by the Rev. John HARRIS, D.D., Principal of New College, St. John's Wood, London; Author of "The Great Teacher," "Mammon," "Pre-Adamite Earth," &c., &c., assisted by Eminent Contributors, amongst whom are the following: -- The Rev. J. SHERMAN, London; the Rev. W. URWICK, D.D., Dublin; the Rev. Professor LORIMER, University of London; the Rev. Newman HALL, B.A., Hull; the Rev. B. S. HOLLIS, Islington; the Rev. R. FERGUSON, L.L.D., Ryde, Isle of Wight; the Rev. Dr. BEAUMONT, Bristol; the Rev. William LEASK, London; the Rev. W. CHALMERS, A.M., London; the Rev. George Smith POPLAR, the Rev. William M. BANTING, London; the Rev. Charles WILLIAMS, London; the Rev. W. W. EWBANK, M.A., Liverpool; the Rev. J. STOUGHTON, Kensington; the Rev. W. REID, Edinburgh; the Rev. Samuel MARTIN, Westminster; the Rev. William BROCK, London; the Rev. John KENNEDY, A.M., London.

The desirableness of such a publication is too obvious to need remark. Even amongst those in whose hearts the spirit of devotion is pure and ardent, a difficulty of expression, or a desire to avoid day after day the repetition of the same phrases while referring to common occurrences, acknowledging "every-day blessings," or praying for their daily renewal -- frequently produces considerable embarrassment; while others as, for instance, females in the absence of the head of the family -- in consequence of nervousness or timidity, are prevented from leading the devotions of the household. To such persons, THE ALTAR OF THE HOUSEHOLD will prove a valuable boon, whether used in the precise form in which it appears, or as suggesting a suitable train of thoughts and expressions. In these respects it may also greatly aid the private devotions of the closet.

It will be seen that, in addition to the distinguished editor, numerous Ministers are engaged in the preparation of this Work. This may be regarded as a guarantee for its Scriptural character, and for its acceptableness to all sections of the Christian Church -- to "all who love the Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity." At the same time, this provides for a rich variety in the modes of expression, whether of adoration, thanksgiving, or petition. Thus, languor and formality will be prevented, while the moderate length of each service will be security against "weariness of spirit" in any of the worshippers.

The publisher, therefore, confidently promises, as the result, a work of singular ability, adapted to every Family where such aid in Domestic Worship is occasionally or regularly desirable.

The Work will be completed in Twelve Parts, one to appear on the first day of each successive month; the whole to form one Splendid Volume; with frontispiece engraved on steel by a first-rate Artist.

Among the passengers on board the Star, Grave... end steamer, which left Blackwall at half past ....... o'clock last Saturday, was a young man, accompanied by his sister, who had seated themselves near the ......... gangway on the starboard side, and appeared to pass their time pleasantly in conversation, until the steamer got into Long Reach, and here, as her course was changed, the paddle-box party shut out from view a large ship towing down the river, and the young man, not being able to see what he desired, leant over the bulwark; while in this position, and directing the attention of his sister by pointing at the ship, he fell overboard, and never rose again above water. The ship he was pointing out was the one on which he would have sailed next day, and their object in going down the river was to go on board her.
