Wo welcome, with sincerity of heart, this elegant and eloquent contribution te the reli gious literature in our language. The author ia the poet of the Christianity of modern times, being so raoogniied by all well read christians of all denominations, whatever may be their eastarian predelict^ons. Thi> work, which Fa ther White has translated with a master pen indeed, embraces a saries of essays, some of tkem elaborate and others fugitive, upon a thousand subjects, viewed in their religious aspects. Its every page glows with the poetic and fervent ohristianity of the euthor, and is with the fruits of bis great learning. Ckateaubriaud always instructs while ho iL ??irep. No man ean read him without being awt-stiioker at the jathos of his scul, the fervency of Lis lo.e for Christianity because that if simply Love in all its elements, the brilliancy at his geniu?, and the extent of his attainments. " God in Lcvo" is the great conv.ction thai. follow. the peru>a< of his reli gious writings, than which no otucra of mcd era timei have mere extensively benefited the haman race in Avery clime. It ha* been long indeed siLCs we have placed in our library a more welcome book than this just from the prolific pre-s of our Baltimore friends.

Mr v geooUect yourself" ' Mr Y^g, WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP. Look Out for Boorbacka!?Until noon to morrow political roorbacks will be as plenty as chaatnata were a month ego. The Fill mourner and Freemcunter journals will rain them on the reading pnblio u they ware never before showered. The Hon. 0. B. Matteaon, House of Repre Bentatives, waa recently in this city for aome twenty-four hoars. A Washington correspon dent of the New York Erprets writes, of bia (Mr. Matteeon'a) pretence among us, that he " has been here on a trade?to sail off Fremont in New York, and in return to receive Demo cratic aid fur King, (Governor ) Tha Demo crats, however, won't tab* King Their im mense Iriah vote, they Bay, would deaert them en mass* if they attempted to paaa off King upon them. Matteaon?after ezpreaaing his faara that Fremont 'had no ohance'?waa heard to aay: 'Well, if we eannot carry Fre mont in Mew York, at any rate Fillmore shall not have the State?we will take care of that ' That means, if anything?the shriekers for freedom maun ? to spite Fillmore to rotofor Buchanan, Cuba and Central America." Another correspondent writes: uWe hare been watching Matteson'a move ments here, and have found him closeted re peatedly with leading and prominent Demo crats in this city. The Buchanan men, on the strength of Mattescn's promises or sales, are quite encouraged aa to New York." Now, the English of all thii nonsense is, that tha Washington writers for and the con ductors of, the Express are playing their game under a profound impreaaion that all the fools of New York State are not yet dead. Mr. Matteson came to Washington, as we happen to know, to attend to the interest of the town of his residence, Utica N. Y.f as in volved in the disbursement of an appropria. tion made in a law of the laat session of Con gress, crdering the construction of an U S. court-rooma and poat office building there. During his brief stay here he was closely en gaged at the State, Treasury and Interior Departments upon that business, and attended to that alone, being very anzioas to return home aa soon as possible, where he Is a oanCi date in tha approaching election. AH stories concerning negotiations between him and Democrats here to strengthen King and weaken Fillmore are made of whole cloth, as well as all atories representing him as admitting that Fremont would not carry New York which ara equally unfounded. We know that fact frcm a brief conversation with him on the Avenue on the subject, whieh left on our mind, owing to hia extravagant calculations with reference to Fremont's strength in the Hmpire State, tha impression that he?Matteson ?was afflicted so far as New York is concerned, with a foolishakink like that which net long since induced the New York Fremonnter journals to claim in advance of the recent Pennsylvania election 40 000 majority for the Fusion State ticket. We question whether Mr. Matteson had live minutes conversation with any man in Wash ington on polities, ao confined was he by his business at the Departmenta. By the by, while the New York Express is crying cut against the New York Fremonters a* being engaged in selling out to the Buch anan men, on the Presidential ticket, the Tri bune is roundly abusing the Fillmore leadera of that State for being up to their eyes in an In trigue to sell their rank and file to the Demo crats on the same issue! We trust thatalj this means that a great many recent Fremont and Fihmore men of Xew York have turned Democrats since the Pennsylvania and In diana eleotions At any rate such seems to be the impression of the New York Herald, which, in its issue of Saturdsy laat, admitted that Buchanan will probably carry that State to morrow. So note it be. Fremont's Religion.?The New York Mir ror gives up the contest, declaring in effect tha t the common belief in Fremont'a lata Roman Catholicism which pervades the minds of tha oppoaition in the Northern States, has " done for'7 his prospects. The editor shrieks for a denial of his former Catholicism from himself personally He will not dare to publish one over hia own signature. We were first to call publia attention to the faotthat he had former ly pretended to be a Roman Catholie, accom panying tha charge with proofs that set the Express and other Catholic-hating journals at work upon that eoent. Right glad ara we, that we did so; for the Mirror tells but the truth in its virtual admission that it has proved the spider in his dumpling, as in the following brief extract from that journal: " In regard to Col. Fremonl a religion and its effect upon the canvass, we frankly con less, that it he is defeated in the great contest of Tuesday next, it will be entirely owing to thia ' damnable iteration" that he is a Roman Catholic While the Protestant American masses have no disposition to interfere with a man's religion (which is an affair with his <iod) any more than with his love, (an affair With his mistress,) they have set their fa?es like flints against the elevation to higher offi-ea of the Government, of a man whose allegiance Vv, e '8 stronger than his allegiance to the State. And we have no doubt that tens of thousands of the more bigoted Protestants per sist in the belief, after ail denials, that Col Fremont is a little fi*hy on the Catholic ques lion. It was with special reference to the prejudices of the&e " weak-minded brethren" that the Mirror proposed to get one muro ab solute, unqualified, unequivocal, unambig uous dmtal from the lips of Col. Fremont, and send it once more on the wings of lightning through the Union. That's all." f ? The Old Line Whigs.?The following, which we take from that sterling conservative jour nal, the Journal of Commtrc4, squares so entirely with our own views upon the subject jn which it treats as that we oopy it entire aa expressing our sentiments upon a point of im mediate interest far more foroibly than we oould express them iu columns of original copy: ' The Old Line Whigs will share in the glory of the triumph about to be achieved over the combined hosts of Abolitionism. Fou nerism, Spiritualism, Sectionalism, Rifle Beecberiani, and a thousand and one other isms, which we have not time to particularise A large number of the most distinguished Whigs, includaiig four or five U S Senators now in office have been " stumping" for Bu ehanan and Breokinridge in different parts of the coun'ry, and have rendered moat efficient fif'?

The ultraistsof both parties have fallen RePublicanisn?, leaving the body in both cases sound national. This ex purgation, it la true, baa drawn more heavily upon th? Whigs than upon th* Democrat*; bat those that remain are as staunch in sup port of the Confutation and the Union on their original basis, and as mnoh opposed to sectionalism and madness in all its branohes, as the purified Democratic party is Both have been vast gainers in point of character bj the ordeal to which thej hare been sab Cted, and bj the same process thej hare sn closely assimilated. The Democracy of 1856 is not the extreme radical party whieh existed in some former years, bat, by a change of circamstances it has become the great con servative party of the country, and the only one which is able to present an effectual bar rier to the in-rushing tide of fanaticism and folly. The Old Line Whigs of themselves - A. Jt.! A* Most of them object to the Know Nothing creed on acoount of its proscriptiveness, and the Black Republicans they abominate. What then remains to them bat isolation, or co-op. eration with the Democracy? This last, it seems to us, is their true position The Dem ocrats are now in a condition to welcome them as brothers Next Tuesday will afford a glo rious opportunity to cement the union, ft is certain that Fillmore has no chance"of an election ; it is even doubtful whether he gets the vote of a single State If the Old Line Whigs wish to make their rotes tell against sectionalism, and against the attempt to rob the South of its equal rights in the national territory, their oourse is plain?they will vote for Buchanan and Breckinridge We trust that a host of them will do so The prospect is fair that the Empire State is about to wheal into the Democratic line, and the Whigs have the power to make the thing certain. Will they do it?" The Hon. Thomas Corwin.?As the Fre mooters are parading a letter said to be from Mr. Corwi* avowing his determination to voto for Fremont, it may not be out of plaoe for as to say that the editor of the New York Com vnrrial Advertiser doubts its genuinenefs be* cause he has seen a letter from Mr. Corwin's pen very recently written, for the genuineness of which he vouches, avowing anything but a determination to vote for Fremont; indeed, declaring that he will not do that thing under any circumstances. The truth is this, Tom Corwin's letter is probably a Republics* par ty forgery, designed to secure a few Fillmore votes for Fremont, get up on the same princi ple on which their roorback attributing to Commodore Stockton a conversion to Fiemont ism. U S Life Boat Service ?Samuel Dunham, Esq , Superintendent of the U. S. life boat service on the coast of New Jersey, has report ed to the Treasury Department the saving of seven lives by the Government life boat be longing to station No. 10, from the bark Kirkland, of Baltimore, bound to New York, whieh recently went ashore on Absecum beacb ; vessel and cargo (of corn) a total loss Sub sequently, (on the 14th ult ,) the schooner Walter Cumnrngs of Smyrna, Delaware, foi New York, went ashore on Long Beach near station H. ller orew, six in number, were saved by the assistance of Capt.

Finney denounced Pryor as a rascal, and said that he would post him as a coward for publishing the account.
