Hall Was Mur dered by Muliuous Meu, A Point Readied Within 480 Miles of Hi Jorth Polo, Sufferings of a Boat's Crew Left on One of the South Shetland Islands. New York, May 11—Dr. i. I. Hayes, tho Arotio explorer, in an interview relative to the failure ©r iim Hall Expedition, expressed opinion that tho “ Polaris ” was unfit for tho service, and that injury to tho vessel was caused by de fects iu her build. ; “ Capt, Hall,” ftald tho Doc tor, " was 404 miles from tho North Polo. Ho (Hall) has proven- what I have predicted long ago, that Smith’s Bound was navigable, and was tho true passage into tho open polar sea, winch ho seems to havo ro&obod. Why ho was driven back I cannot toll, probably by drifting icO fields or golos of wind; but I havo ho doubt that ho had reached tho polar sea. Thoro la ono re markable fact about his explorations; Ho had constant sunshine all tho time, and tho survivors who wore drifting down south with tho waters woro all tho time without a ray of .sunshine. I can’t understand why a ship, when it was so near Northumberland Island, would drftw dp be* fore ico and discharge its cargo on lb I think thoro wan dissension on board; and it looks to mo as though this party.had boon determined to loavo tho ship. Thoro is amy s tery about this part of tho report that Icnunot fathom. X think Capt. Hall baa dono a glori ous thing. Ho has gone further north with his ship than any human being, oVor did boforo him, although others havo gouo os far in sledges, Capt. Hall sooms to havo broken through tho icebergs of Bnlith’s Sound which baffled both previous expeditions, and succeeded in reaching the point whore both Kano and I claim cd to havo soon tho open polar soa, in latitude 82 degrees 10 minutes, tho most northerly lati tude over reached by any ship. His ship was 210 miles further north than Kano’s ship, I can’t understand why tho survivors wero loft to tho mercies of tho floe, unless thoro was diffi culty on board tho ship. At tho outset at Drisco, there was some difficulty be tween Hall aud Buddington. This was settled by tho Captain of tho Congress. Thoro was something very mysterious iu Capt. Hall's death. I wouldn’t hko to say that ho was killed by ono of his men in a mutiny, but it would almost look so. I havo novor known of nnyouo dying in that region of apoplexy, and Capt. Hall certainly did not look like an apoplontio man. I think thero is strong probability that tbo people on board tho Polaris oro safe, and that tho vessel will ho back hero by September. Tho men who deserted tho ship, probably did so because of Hall’s death. Ho was a bravo and resolute man, and stout with determination to reach tbo North Polo if it would tako him five years to do it. Ho was ono of tho pluckiest men I over sow, and would have staid two years more to accom plish his purpose if death had spared him— death or murder, 1 don’t know which." Prof. Baird, of tho Smithsonian Institute, thinks Hall’s expedition for from a failure, ami has no doubt realized many of the objects in view in souding it out. The Herald publishes a statement of James A. King, the only known survivor of a boat’s crow of five of tho seal-fishing schooner Franklin, of Now London, landed In 1871 on Window Island, ono of tho South Bhotlands, situated south of Capo Horn, In latitude 64. The men killed 1,000 seals there, and wont to Bt. George’s Island, leaving tho record of thoir whereabouts behind. The vessel subsequently returned from another of the group, landed a boat, discovered tho record, and proceeded to St. George’s, whore, getting no response to guns, rockets, ond other signals, and being unable to send a boat ashore on account of breakers and ice, was compelled to abandon tho men and proceed homo, whore thoir loss had long since boon reported. Tho schooner Nilo, ono of whoso .men is now m Now Yorlc, discovered King laio last year In a small wooden hat on St. George’s Island. One of his companions had died several months bo foro, while others, including tho third mate, loft, two weeks boforo King was found, with a boat, for Window Island, against bis remonstrance. Ho helped them launch tho boat, but don’t know what became of thorn. It is certain, how ever, that a portion of tho boat and a sailor’s coat wore found on tlio bench nonr Cnpo Sheriff, thirty miles from tho hnt whom tho men pnesed tho weary year. That they wero drowned in tho breakers and novor reached Win now Island is probable. It is reported that the seals are now almost en tirely kiUod off the South Shetland Islands. King told this roan that ho aud his comrades managed to live ou pelicans’ flesh and some bis cuits loft behind by a boat’s crow, aud made clothes out of seal skins. Thoir but was built of boards loft thero by another vessel. Fire was kept with seal blubbers. Tho survivor had boon without fire several days when found. I The Remain* of the Late Chief-Jus-, tic chase Lying in stale in Wash ington. Washington May 11.—Tho remains of tho lato Chief-Justice Chase arrived hero early this morning, accompanied by relatives ond pall bearers, and wore convoyed to tho Supremo Court-room, where they wore placed on a cata falque, the same on which the body of Lincoln reposed in state in the rotunda of the Capitol m April, 18C5. Floral decorations tastefully arranged in tho form of crosses, wreaths, an chors, etc., wore placed on the coflln and tho catafalque, most of them being from the Gov ernment conservatory. Immediately in front of the draped seat foimorly occupied by tho lato Chief Justice was a largo floral cross, while jusldo iho bar woro boxes of tho choicest blooming flowers. A guard of policemen and servants of tho court were in attendance. Several thousand persons visited tho Su preme Court-room in the course of the day, but wore disappointed in not seeing tho tho face of tho deceased., Tho casket was opened by a physician for private inspection, but was again soon closed, for reason it is said, that tho features had undergone a marked change, there fore it was thought proper not to expose them. The funeral services will at noon to-morrow be conducted by the Hot. Dr. Tiffany, in the Senate Chamber. All of tho furniture, including tho carpets, was some time ago removed, but tho chairs will be temporarily re stored, and tho Vioo-Prosidont’s seat. Secretary's desk, and other ports of tho chamber bo draped in mourning. The following gentlemen have been appointed pall-boarora s Admiral Ooldaborough, Gen.

New York, May 11.—Francis W; Worth, Bo colvor of th‘6 Market Savings bank, gives this explanation of tho return of Henry It. Conldin, tho fugitive cashier: “Wo had boon worltlng at tho books, and had gone oo far as possible with out acslstanco. There was so much doctoring tip of tho accounts, and so many false andcon fusoa ontrlna; that wo wore completely at a loss bow to prooood, and it bad become absolutely nobossary that aomo ono conversant with, tho' mnunor In which tho books had boon kept should bo called in. In those cirourantancoß, I procured a writ of Immunity for him, nrtd wont to Canada to bring him on. With his aid wo hope to fix tho blnmb on several parties who havo here tofore Blood quite high. By his testimony wo hopo to convict Van Nome, now tracked up, and got sufficient facte to warrant tho arrest of othor persons whom at present it would bo unwiao to nnmo lost it should put thorn on their guard. Should tho wholo matter over como boforo tho public, very interesting revelations would bo made; hut I expect thoro aro several who would draw their ebooks quickly for tho amount of thoir peculations as soon as wo ohow them wo havo facts in . our possession to convict them. Conklin is now working quiotly qu tho books of tho bank in a plnco where ho is froo from dintiirbanco, and will bo able to givo uo something definite during tho coming week. Bov. Dr. Bellows, ono of ino most conservative of Unitarian clergymen, Bays of tho prospects of that Church: "Wo.are a Church without ony definite oroed. Wo agree only on ono polnt—a denial of-tho dogma of tho Trinity. Beyond that wo . havo no premeditated uni formity of belief. Wo aro as independent in our individual aa in our combined capacities. Wo have no synods or Ecclesiastical Councils. Thoro Is what is termed tho General Assembly mooting onco a year. Its functions ' are purely conaultalivo, and in tho Constitution of that body it is declared to bo open to Unitarian and other. Churches. On that other churches will Uo all tho trouble. Wo can shut no one out, and of course wo cannot agreo to sottlo down on any particular defined lino of belief. Our wholo arrangement is ono rather of a mutual understanding than of a fixed purpose. If wo wero cut up into forty different hits, and each fragment sot alloat on Its own individual shingle, I tldnk wo should gradually work our way together Into pretty much wliat wo aro now. There aro aomo few who havo either loft us or stand ready to rot .m to Christianity, but they would probably go into something like Beecher’s froo religion. They aro consorvotivo, and aro afroid of auch lodso fish oo Prothlughom, coming into tho quiot pool aud raising a general dis turbance. Ho may do oo at any time. Wo cannot prevent; but I doubt very much whether wo havo any just cause of apprehension. Wo Imvo all shades of opinion with regard to tho divinity of Jesus Christ represented in our congregations. Our great characteristic, If wo have ouo predom inant ono, Is charity in matters of belief. Lot us think aa wo wiU, but not quarrol nor dispute. Tho Bov. Octavius D. Frothingbam, most radical of his creed, assorts • tho radicals aro no longer Unitarians.* Wo havo. no creed. Wo prido ourselves on having none. If I wore to attempt to givo a religious title to our belief, so far as it exists, I should call It Theism, not Christian, but scientific Theism. Wo discord the Bible. Christ, ond all tho old forms of belief, and shall follow our faith, no mattor whore it may load us; wo do not care, of conrso. Tho main body of tho Church holds tho monoy, but, as conservatism always does, wo possess tho zeal, the brains, and the determination to follow our own course. No ecclesiastical fellowship exists between tho two bronchos. Wo do not oxchango in our pul pits. and la all respects wo aro entirely distinct. Wo can and do admit all manner of men Into our Society—Spir itualists, Catholics, Atheists, Infidels—all aro oquolly woloomo, if they do not attempt to meas aro others by their standard orthodox. Unita rianism I think will become evangelical. Our future depends only on tho limitations of the human powers ond science. Wo hold the religion of tho future, if such a thing exists." Thoro was much oxcitemout hero this evening about tbp Fifth Avenuo Hotel over a report that Qov. Dix hod fallen dead in Albany in a fit of apoplexy, while returning from church. The* story was believed for somo time, and not wholly discredited until some friends .telegraphed to Albany, and learned that ho was alive ond well. Later.—So wide-spread was tho belief in Qov. Dix’s death that it was announced this ovomng from several pulpits, A number of persons would not believe tho contradiction until they had called on tho Bov. Morgan Dix, and woro assured that tho report was a canard. Tilioro really seems somo prospect now "that Tweed will havo au impartial trial, though It is generally boliovod that his Tammany adherents will probably find moans to defeat tho ends of justice. . [To the Associated Press.] New York, May 11.— The accident to the steamship Oceanic appears to have occurred two miles outside of Sandy Hook, and was a crack in the face of one of her four cylinders, through which a small quantity of steam at first escaped, i’ho damage appealing alight, It was determined to proceed, but in fifteen minutes the crack bad so extended that the steam was escaping very rapidly. It was thou decided to return, and the vessel reached the dock at 7p. m. The fooo of the cylinder is of cast iron, about six inch es thick, and hold' together by a wrought iron rim. The break woe a sixteenth of aa inch in width, and extended entirely across tbe faco of the cylinder, which woo a now ouo put on at the last stoppage at Liverpool. Tbe change of tho course of tho ship caused much excitement among tho passengers, which was al layed. They nil wont ashore lust night, and tho steamer will probably not continue her voyage until a now casting is made,—perhaps two or throo days. LOUISIANA.

The First Sabbath after the Calamity; Yesterday In the Stricken Town. Tho ’ Church Observances— Fea tures ottho Day. Operations at tho Fatal Span, Special Dispatch to The. Chicago Tiibune, Dixon, 111., May 11.-—This evening cloaca a Sunday tho saddest known ih tlid of thifl region, tho first Sabbath following tho sttoko of tho great calamity, succeeding a wook of such griof and anguish ih tho stricken homes of this community, as has rarely boon exceeded in tho annals of human sorrow. A peculiar Interest has attached lo this day, as tho first occasion of public couoourso aside from tho frequent funer als that havo filiod tho town with symbols of tnnun»t*»o. At on early hour in tho day, pooplo began to como in from neighboring localities, and from tho Homes of the town, until a largo concourse of spectators hod resumed tho operation of watching tho dismal proceedings at tho ooono of tho oasuolty. Both shores'of tho rivor Imvo boon thronged watching tho work of cleaning away tho fatal span. No additional bodies havo been found though flvo more aro known to bo missing, all of whom whoro last soon on or near the bridge or in tho water. At this hour about all the debris of tho fatal span has boon drawn out of tlio water and wreckers aro dragging tho river at that placo and down tho rivor for a distance of three miles. Throughout this wholo oxtont tho dreadful work is going on. If it is possible for human skill and labor to find theso bodies thoy will bo found. THIS OiIUROITES. At 11'o’clock tho aovon churches of tho city wore filled with weeping audiences. The mourn ers proper in the Baptist Church occupied tho front seats filling a largo part of tho room. In tho Methodist Church thoy wore scattered through tho congregation. In all, they woro conspicuous, and, together with tho drapery of mourning which in all tho churches hung from altars, pulpits, ceilings, and doors, made tho congregations of tho Dixon churches to-day tho most solemn epootaclo your reporter has over soon. The service in tho Baptist Church opened with tho singing of tho hymn/ ‘Lord, How Mysterious aro Thy Ways," by the congregation, after which tho pastor, Bov. J. 11. Pratt, road tho 40 th paalm ond offered prayer. rev. mr. pratt's prayer. Oh, Clod, wo como IhU morning lo cock thy hlcHßlng, Ilnut thou not in thy Providence onlotcd all llilnoa?

How can wo speak when Thou art speaking ? - O, grant that wo may como out of this night of sorrow Into tlio light of God's own countenance, W© nek It lu tbo name of Christ. Amou, the nnv. mr. pratt’s sermon. Text: "Do still and know that I am God." Psalm 40, 10. Is thoro ono boro to-day who doubts tho existence of God? If there bo such an one, for him I havo no moaaago: and, Indeed, totboao who behove in tho God of tho Bible,T spoakwith much trembling. Thoro are times and circumstances when, it seem wrong to break thosiloncoof God. Such is our condition 'to day. Llko a thunderbolt from tho clear sky foil tho calamity last Sabbath. In tho midst of Hfo wo aro-in death. God is speaking to ua to-day. Lotus listen; bo still; Ho speaks in nature. His voice is hoard in tho soft summer breeze or in the whirlwind and tho tempest. “Tho hoavona declare His glory and tho firmament showoth His handiwork.

Ho Invites us to examino for ouraolvosjand tolls us all wo ought to know of Him.. Ho speaks to us by His Spirit, and happy, aro thoy who baton to His teachings. Ho speaks to ns by His Providence, in this voice. He addresses ua to-day. ShaU wo understand that God has dono this, ond by it that Ho Is speaking to tho living ? Oh I lot us hoar what God says to ua to-day, Tbo preacher horo showed how God was speak ing to tbo father, tho mother, sister, brother, tho Sunday-school scholar, young man and wo man, nnd thou eaid, I don't wish toaitiu ludg monl on our onoa to-day: if I did I could apeak with oouildonco, I oulyaddroaa tho living. Tho death of our lost ones oamo suddenly. No farowoll word of parting was uttered. We should learn that our lives aro in tho hands of God. Ho has set tho time. With Him thoro is no change. Ho orders all things in His infinite wisdom. Wo should learn the great uncertainty of human life. Next followed a brief sketch of each member lost connected with Mr. Pratt’s congregation, aftor which tho acrvlco closed with tho slngins of tho hyum p ! Oh Lord, how happy wo should bo, If wo cast our care on The©. The sermon was very plain and short, and de livered with much emotion. The room was full, and during the on tiro sorvlco it seemed that ovoryono was weeping. er. John’s episcopal oitunon. The Roy. H. 11. Loring, of thoDiocoao of Pitts burgh, oQlciated. The sorvicos wore especially solemn. Penitential Psalms wore used in the Psaltor. Thanksgiving for dolivoranco from danger was rendered, and pray6ra wero offered for persons In affliction. Tho full Litany was said, Including tho moro ponltontial portion. Tho subject of tho sermon was “ Sympathy.” Tho duly of Ohristian men and woman to seek out tho afflicted and sorrowing, and mako thoir burdens easier to bo borno, was dwelt upon. Tho speaker said it is impossible for any ono, morally or religiously, or as regards bis temporal needs, to stand alouo in the world—-that is to say, on tho social prin ciple rest both secular and religious life, in us thero is an element of dependence, and between us there is a chord of sympathy, vfo support each other in a thousand ways and by manifold action, quite unimportant, superficially considered. Wo influence each othor for good or for evil, for gain or for loss, for God or for Satan. Our sympathies aro

expounded or ■ contracted, • increased or diminished, accordingly. Tho Church was represented as a family, the members of which aro brethren. As sucu they aro to sym pathize ono with another. Those with whom wo sympathize in their trials and sorrows—and who is there horo to-day that does not know of such ? —will thus be comforted to bo in a measure re lieved of their burdens. There was but ono person connected with this church lost. His uarao was Robert Dyke. IN TUB METJTODIBT OUUIIoa the Rot. John Williamson preached a memorial sermon, taking for his text, “ Blessed are those servants whom tho Lord, when lie oomoth, shall And watching." Luke xil.s 117. This morning we are in the shadow of a moral disaster. Wo are boro neither to blamo nor to rnpiuo. Toara wo our birthright, and wo would bond our hoods to their hallowing ministry. This is not our first sod day. Ere this our hearts have bled, lives novo boon darkened by disaster, ana our hearts have broken with anguish, pur worst misfortune has in this Instance been exaggerated, and our worst con ceptions of fear have been realized. Tho ox- Elanation is i Wo are awoy from our Father’s on ??* not our homo. Here wo havo no continuing city. Our human fortune is all ad justed to a life of uncertainties. Ours is a pil grims fate. Tho demon of death Is over-insatiate. More tban6,ooo homes have formed this precious human tide into his horrid maw, and yet. his greed Is uuappoasod. Plague and Occidents have crowded each other, and continue with bloody wrecks In oblation to spirits In fernal, and yet tho orlmsoii stream remains unchecked. We sea insecurity in every terres trial thing. Wo cannot blame our Qod. Death was not by him orcWned, Jt iu not a child of nlß l infinite ptmlun. Slim mode hie sronne, end doolino. and death. Wo, may road tho Divine will in Nature. Natural things are God’s plain and conclusive voice. Wo must study them ami obey. Ignorance and disobedience are tho im placable fooh of human kind.. Those God novor mado. Ho must permit thtm to spore our choices from servitude. Thoy aro hnmrvtl choices or 'misfortunes. God' grants us elec tive volition, ills decrees aro not determinative, bat overruling. Tho wrath of man is made to praiso Him. Wo cannot say that ourTruosdoll bridge was smitten by tho Almighty, and foil aif ft judgment, or to teach a salutary moral lesson. It foil because Its material supports were insufficient, and those woro insufficient be cause tho people did not think or know. To ac cuse ony opo of orimo in tho plan and construc tion. of .this unfortunate bridge is to declare wlmt no ono bollovos. Tho will of God in nil ages la that overloaded structures must give way. Tho ability of any bridge to hoar a straw is a ; simple question of mechanics, and when .tho Divlno forewarning is made Urns maihomotically precise, wo must henceforth try to hood without knowing it. Our dear peo ple crowdtd on an imperfect bridge, and swift disaster carao. God, howovbf; lo Using thin dire calamity for ourgood and Ilia own glory; Within a few days wo havo scon much practical Chris tianity illustrated, ond tho usually latent spirit of Oimutians has boon plainly discerned. Times like those provoke many a man Into practical professions of religion, who, without tills exigency,' would liv? mid die unknown ana unappreciated by tho Church. Our pooplo tianrd tho Qonpul uf 14 Do JO aliio ready" preached with unusual power last Lord's day.. .They listened to its mournful rhythm, bur dening the air in solemn dirge, and to its warn ’ ing refrain rising from tho river’s troubled flood. Tho toiling bell hath beaten eternity’s nubliroo stop; tho dismal hoarso portended tbo coming peace, mid tho waiting mourners sigh the grief of living. Who, during tho past week, has failed to think of tho Sweet field* Ifoyond the nwdling flood, aud of tho land of cloudless sunshine, “whore tho wicked' cease from troubling and tho woary nro at rest.” In all thooo thinga may bo soon • tbo Divine overruling. Iloro io the ministry of Providential profit. In those stimnla of Christian graces God’s hon'd moy bo soon—in tho very freshness of this dia autor, whilo emotion' is stirred to its bottom, and whilo tears aro raining thoir sad flow, and stony hearts hove lost thoir flint. God grout that many men may sock the Crucified. * During tho past dread wook, I havo boon call ed to bury mnnydond, and, as a Christian minis ter. I havo tried to uamo Jesus worthily to stricken hearts and desolated homos. Tho work loft unfinished thoro, it is my mean ing to complete tliis morning. I havo many delightful facts concerning each of theso deceased, and would Hko to recount them in momorlam and for our common good.

Our calamity teaches ua .two chief lessons: first, “ Bo yo also ready.” “No mourning can ho sure of its evening twilight, and'choson safety daily proves a baited snare," and, second, always build against twice tho known demand included iu every contract. Sock superfluous safety, and never court a chance where human Ufo is endangered. THE REV, DR. RATH, OF ELGIN preached ia tlio Univoranlibt Church, After alluding in a brief but touching manner to tho sad ovenla which had been filled eo many hearts with deepest sorrow, and tho whole cation- with mourning, Mr. B. announced his text from John viv: 13: “ I will not leave you comfortless. I will como to you.” Ho said tho spirit and design of Chris tianity was to meet tho conditions and supply tho real wants of all.men, by removing igno rance and sin ami teaching tho way of holiness, reconciliation to God, and perfect obedience to his laws. Thoro is a placo and a need for such a religion as Jesus taught. Philosophers may doubt, historians deny, and scientists reject, but thoro is a realm nothing else can explore ami fill. What cun their cold queries do for hearts broken and breaking as yours aro to-day? Who can boar to look down Into those fresh graves and see only darkness and alienee thoro ? Who can gaze intently into tho solemn future, into eternity, and see no light, hoar no voices, fool no touch of palpitating love? Jesus was about to loavo His disciples, and they wore end. Ho explained to thorn how needful it was Ho should go away, and then assured them Ho would not loavo them comfortless; Ho would como to thorn. Two things aro boro taught: First, Christianity loaves no oao comfortless, it removes all • guilt, all darkness, all sorrow and gives fullness of Joy and life for over more. Ho swallows up death in victoryj wipes away tears from all facos, and makes all things now. Second, Jesus comes to tho stricken souls, to tho wayward sinner, to tho departing spirit, to restore, to guide, to comfort, and to save. Ho comes not m tho grosser form of llosh and blood, as tho Church has taught, and waits to separate and condemn, but In his spirit-power, to bo formed in us, the bouse of glory to dwell in us, as Ho promised that Ho and bis Father would como to us and sup with ns that wo should boono In Him as Ho was ono in tho Father. While in tho world Ho boro witness to tho truth,but when Ho loft it Ho sent tho spirit of tmtb upon thorn that believe. By that spirit Ho comos to all who truly bolievo to comfort aud bless tbom. All who lovo dwell in God, and God In them, for God is lovo. Horo Is comfort, and hero is hone, and hero Is joy for tho deepest afiliotions, for tho severest trials. A want Is mot which tho world cannot supply. Tho profoundost knowledge, tho highest honors, tlio greatest wealth aro bubbles compared with tlio riches of tho Gospel, in a town like this: but tho sweet and hallowing spirit of truth, tbo holy comforter, removes nil doubt and fear, and broatbea life and joy into tho saddest scones, by showing us tho Father, Who dooth all things well. IN THE riIEHDYTKRIAN 011011011, the pastor, Rev. E. Sickles, chose for his tost Psalms Ixii, 11 : “ tied hath spoken onco. Twice have I hoard that power holongoth unto God." Within the past month the country and world bavo boon startled by those grout dlaustoru —God speaking onco on tho highway of the soa,— tho loss of tho Atlantic, on the highway of tho land, a railway train rushing to destruc tion at Meadow Brook, and tho falling of our bridge, last but not least. In tho first tho loss was scattered over two conti nents. . Tho second was ouo or least a commonwealth, whilo in this of ours forty have been taken from our liltlo community. No won der at tho instonso interest and sympathy throughout tho land. Amid this widespread grief our Church has groat reason for thankful ness—out of so largo a congregation and so many of them living on tho North Bide, ami so many of them on tho bridge at tho time, our loss but throo, and those throe, earnest devoted Chris tians. 1 havo had to bury none in a hopeless grave. Tho powor of God toward us as a congregation, therefore, is that of deliverance, ana tho voice of God that of mercy. My subject is tho voice of God in this disaster. It is God. Wo call It an acci dent, hut there are no accidents in tho govern ment of God. Not a sparrow falls without God’s notice, much loss so many hearts full of lovo and affection. Tho speaker here dwelt on the relations of anoh calamities to tho providential government of God, allowing by illustration and scripture His kingdom rulolh overall. Wo learn from this calamity how near Qod is. Wo forgot this until God speaks. lie put out Ills mysterious hand, and drew away many of our numbers. God can roach after us any moment. Wo loam iiow near wo are to God. Wo cannot boo God, hut at any moment wo may fall into His hands. Death has a thousand mos congers. Life hangs by a thread, and that thread alone keeps us from trio immediate presence of n just and holy God. Preparation to meet Him is tho prime value and use of life. White God speaks onco in this powerful manner, Ho is all the timo speaking in a different tone. Judg ment is His. Strange work—words of kindness, or tones of lovo. Ho proffers amtnsos< “ Como unto moallyo that labor;" "If any man thirst/* dto. “ Tho Son of Man catno not to‘destroy raoi/s Htos, hut to savo them," etc., etc. Those ore now tlfo words of Jesus. Onoo, twice, n thousand times God hath spoken. Tho oimroh was heavily draped id mourning, and was crowded. , REV. N. W. BELLY, of Ihti Lutheran Church, preached from tho text: “Itis a beautiful thing to fall in tho hands of tho living God/ 1 Hob. x.f 01. Tho fact that Christ has mado a doftrplolo atonement for our sins, and offers ns snlvatidu, and wo aro urged to accept It, makes us doubly re sponsible and Intensifies our guilt if unsaved. Wo had no guilt but for tbo violation of God’s law; but now that salvation is offered and wo nro urged to accept It, our rejection or refusal lays us under tho additional guilt of despising Hiu graoo and mercy, and treating contemptuous ly tho blood of His dear Bon : and if wo sin wil fully after that wo liuvo received tho knowledge' of tho truth there remains no moro sacrifice for sins Ac. Hob. xxxi.: 80. It is a fearful thing to fall Into tho hands of tho living God. 1. Whftt la it to fall into tho hands of tho living God ? 2. Why Is it so fear ful? Wo oro always iu God’s bands oo His creatures, but thin is not tbo sonso boro inotmt. Tliord IK ft reference to tho inking of vengeance and rocomponnlrlg for tiotnoiblng dono. It doos not refer td crtlflWHios nor misfortunes in this Hfo. Wo bcliovd in special providences, but all calamities aro not God’s direct providences, while many and and suffering calamities aro mercies and bloflsingfl.' No doubt this rocom iiojiho reforo to the final judgment, where mod fall unmistakably Into tho hands or tho living God. It is thoro, aftor tho investigation of tho case, that tho Judge from His throne will pro nounco the sentence,—to those who havo served God with acceptance a sentence of wolebmo, and those who Imvo not, tho sentence, " Depart from mo/' o(o. Thin is to fall most emphatically into tho hands of tho living God. 'Among thoso who thus fall will ho many who now expect hotter things in the future. In that day tho question will not ho asked, Woro you baptized—tfhou, whoro, c/r how; did you belong to tho Church, and to what; did you go to tho communion and behove in tho real presence or not; did you pos sess a good moral character before man ? Nouo of those. A very different standard is raised, a measure to reach tho recesses of tho heart. Did you do tho will of Him who sent mo ? Did you believe tho record of God respecting Tlio Bon, and did you servo Him in singleness of heart r FalUng to abide those testa, you must fall into tho hands of tho living God. And why so fearful ? Because Ha la so mighty andean Inflict whatever punishment Ho pleases. Who can stand bofbro tho power of Omnipotence ? All can neither turn from tho fiorcouoss of His wrath nor dictate tho terms of reconciliation. Man is powerless when tho thun derbolts of heaven aro lot loose. What arm can slay tlio stroke of the Almighty ? As well might tho sucking child havo stayed tho fall of tho iron bridge a week ago. It is fearful, because God is just, and will moto out tho just merits of every case. Yet ono othor thought. It is fear ful to fall, otc. Tho idea is that thoso who full into His bauds aro thoso who will not como and trust themselves upon His word and promise. It is not fearful to God, not fearful to approach Him. not fearful to throw yourself into His hands ; but when men will not .como, will not trust Him, will not obey Him, It will bo fearful to bo hurled into His presence and fall into His hands. Into tho Divine presence wo must como, but when ns criminals wo aro brought, with conviction in our hearts, how wo dread tlio Divine presence. But ouch has no doubt boon tho case with some who wont down with tho bridge on Inst Sabbath. Somo who sat iu this bouse are gone forever. Thoy Imvo mot Godin very deed.

Hughes, who has here tofore boon spoken of as the probable candidate of tho Republicans, cannot, it is said, command tho united support of tho party, being otrongly opposed by Senator Lewis and his followers. Since tho nomination of . Horace Greeley by tho Democratic Conven tion at Baltimore, Henry A. Wiso, like John S. Mouby, has been seeking affiliation with tho Republican party of Virginia, and tho proposition is to take him up us a compromise candidate on tho ground that he would draw af ter him some Conservative votes. The straight out Republicans of tho Hughes’ faction are, of course, against Wise, and will do all they can to prevent his nomination. Altogether, it is hard ly probable that Wiso can bo nominated, but in view of his antecedents, the idea of Ins Booking a nomination from tho Republicans is rather novel. , SEOnETABV RICHARDSON.
