SUNDAY-SCHOOL TEACHERS ADVICE FROM MR. MOODT. Farwell Hall was crowded yesterday long be fore the hour of noon, the time when the regular Saturday Sunday-School Teachers* meeting is usually held. The reason for the vast assem blage was that D. L. Moody was announced to gpcak. The cards of admission were only limit ed by the capacity of the house, and the audience tos in a large part composed of active workers in the Christian field. Ladies predominated, and among them were noticed a great many of our school-teachers, wbo came to drink in the words of wisdom uttered by Mr. Moody. Another reason for the audience lay in the fact that the well known Evangelists, Messrs. Whittle and Bliss, would be present and assist in the exercises. Just previous to the commencement of the exerdscs, Mr. B. F. Jacobs called for Volunteers for the choir, which was placed upon the stage, and numbered about fifty ladies and gentlemen. Previous to the regular exercises, several hymns were sung bv the entire congregation, including, «I Need xlice Every Hour.** This singing was ledbv Mr. Thane. At the regular services P. p. Bliss presided at the organ and led the commencing this portion of the ser riccs, Mr. Bliss led iuprayer, involdngthe bless ing of Almighty God upon the singing, and mring for the return of health to Air. Saukcy. *3ir. 5. F. Jacobs then announced that he hud received a letter from Air. Stuart, of Philadel phia, asking that the Sunday-school workers sustain the Centennial Board in their determi nation to keep the Exposition doors dosed Sun day, and moved that John V. Farwell be em powered to take the request of this meeting to Philadelphia and lay it before the Commis aoners. Arising vote was taken, which re sulted in a unanimous adoption. Alter the vote Mr. Jacobs said, “ May God grant that thev he gnu.” Air. Bliss then led in singing “The Great Physician.** The services were opened by Mr. Aloody an nouncing the hymn, “Hallelujah, *t is done I*’ which was sung by the congregation standing. Mr. ‘Whittle then led in an earnest prayer. Mr. Moodv said that Mr. Bliss had just come back from the mountains where he had spent his time writing new hymns, and requested him to sing one, and in response Air, Bliss sang “ At the Feet of Jesus,** a hymn of sweet words set to attractive music, which the gentleman ren dered most feelingly, playing his own accoxn* oaniment on the cabinet organ. The hymn will jecome popular as a Sunday-school song. At the dose of the singing Air. Aloody called all to jome and stand upon the platform that could, h order that some of those who had been turned iwty might be admitted. The hymn “ Take ;be Name of Jesus with you ** was then sung by die entire audience standing. Mr. Moody then gave a few words of cheer to ;he Sabbath-school workers. They did not mow how his heart had been stirred during the Dost three years, when he had beard of those -aturdav meetings, and the magnitude to which :hey had grown. He had picked up The Trib that morning and saw the Sunday-school Wesson discussed in its columns. No one ;bonght that would come to pass three years i«m. Now he understood there were three daily :ipers in Chicago which wrote up this lesson »7erv Saturday. If any one had predicted that ibree years ago, men would have said he was -azy. Some of the most successful Sabbath -I*ool workers he had seed iu the Old World &ad sprung from Chicago Sunday-schools, and ae pleaded with the teachers to continue sow ing the good seed. He related the story of a Utile boy whom he had picked up in a tank on ;be North Side, who was now a Sunday-School Superintendent in New York. They did not mow what the little tow-headed boys they picked up and brought to the mission school Slight turn out to be. They might prove to be Whitfields, Bunyans, or Alnrtiu Luthers. He sagged them not to be discouraged, but to keep ju sowing, and in good time they would reap the jarvest of everlasting life, He related several incidents, and said they ’ should aim for the conversion of children, and 1 they aimed to work, thev would succeed. Re wanted them to work to-day, not to wait lour mouths. Many Smiday-scbool children would die in July and August. He wanted ;bcm to look for souls and they would get * ibem. He wanted to see personal work. Alcn rere not converted by wholesale. They must touvert children one by one, and they would told out. They would then have a whole life to save Christ. They ought to aim for-tbe con rersion of children, fie wanted them to _be luickcncd by the Holy Spirit. He wanted all to save something to do in the Sabbath-schools, md to bring children to Christ- He took up the Sunday-school lesson for the lay, from Acts v., 13, 26. The Apostles m prison, as given in yesterday’s Tribune, lie iever knew a churcii to prosper where there rare bickerings. He wanted all to have warm learts for God, which was a necessity. There was 10 doctor required to cure these people. If ?jey were only right with God, they would have lower with God and with man. They found in His lesson that the laws of God and the laws of nan came in conflict. The Apostles were told d preach in Christ's name. There were many iow who could preach whole years without nren mentioning Christ’s name. Peter and tail could preach no other than Christ and Him sudfied. Preaching without the name of Christ amounted to nothing. Whenever there ras success in preaching then there was a stir tmong the Devil and the evil ones. They were ibout making mischief then. The children rere to be taught to obey parents, but if heir parents taught them to disobey God s bws, the children should be taught o obey God first. This seemed like a conflict, tteaose God said, “Children obev your pa ints,” but they must first obey Gods laws, le told the story of a converted son who tried o get his father to close his store Sunday, and fho finally succeeded by prayer, not alone in losing the store Sunday, but in converting his Über, and the boy became a minister, and his mothers also. , . ’ In alluding to the twentieth verse in the les on, “Go, stand and speak in the temple to lie people all the words of this life,** be said hat it meant everlasting life. John y., 34 was 'ae of the best verses In the Bible, which would done lead children to Christ. If all he rest of the Bible were blotted out, aid only this verse remained It would be flffident to save sinners. He read and dis ccted the verse. Clirist was judged on -alvary, and if they believed in Him they were •wed. He wanted this verse taught to children o bring them to Christ. He wanted the Word it God Drought- down deep in the hearts of the hildren In tne Sunday-schools. • Air. Bliss than sang another new hymn pi nis *wn composition entitled “ Hallelujah, what a tarior.” Mr. Moody then led in prayer, thanking God hr the privilege of having worked for Goa dur- Pg the past twenty rears, and asking for Goa s •leasing upon the Sabbath-school workers, ana hat they might have a great harvest for Christ luring the coming season, and that thousands d teachers might be sent out to help and [sicken the great work. He invoked the bless *«g of God upon the Gospel singers,Sankcy and Jfise, and that they might be made a rrcater blessing to the Christian work in iie hands of God. He then requested Hr. Bliss to sing “Watching and Waiting,” rhlch was sung as a duet by Mr. and Mrs. Bliss unid the most profound silence and attention, lie choir assisting In the chorus. The hymn Is •he of those sweet sacred songs which touch the coder heart by feeling and quickening words, od is one of Mr. Moody’s favorites at his re rival meetings. , Mr. Moody then expressed his thanks for heir pravers while he was engaged In work nray from the city. He made an appeal for workers, and said that the last time he was in his hall was on the night of the great Are, and his was the first timehc had spoken there since, «d he probably would not see Q e i C*in for some time. The Gospel fitagipg_haa ttigimted upon this jilstfona and he sated Mr. BUsa to sins “ Ninety and Awe." Sir. Jacobs then announced that a meeting of ministers would L»e held immediately after the conclusion of the exercises. v Mr* Bliss then sang the “Ninety and Nine.’* Mr. Moody pronounced the benediction, after which the exercises were closed. After the meeting In Upper Farwell Hall was closed, a number of ministers held an informal discussion in the lower hall, looking to holding a general meeting to-morrow for the purpose of getting Mr. Moody to stay in this city and or ganize a scries of revival-meetings In some great hall to be decided upon hereafter. ROMAN CATHOLICISM^ THE PBESBXTEBIAN3 DO NOT THINK Hum QK TUB SUBJECT. Ktw York Sun, May 31. After the hearing of several brief reports from standing committees, the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church yesterday morning took up the consideration of the overture from the Synod of Missouri regarding “ Popish Baptism." This overture, as read by one of the Secretaries, was, in effect, a recommendation that, in view of the Church of Rome being no part of the Church of Carlst, its baptism should not be con sidered valid, and converts from Romanism to Presbyterianism should be baptized as though they had come directly from the world, and had never before been members of any Christian Church whatever. Tue Rev. Dr. Wm. L. Breckinridge, on behalf of the Synod of Missouri, addressed the Assem bly, and offered a resolution that it was their deliberate judgment that the Church of Rome had apostatized from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and therefore could not be recog nized as a Christian Church. It was no defense of the Roman Church to say that it held much truth, Dr. Breckinridge added; there were many bad societies of which this could be said. Even the devils themselves held much truth. Everything was asked by the Roman Church in the name of the Virgin Mary; little or nothing in the name of Christ. And in this worship they were as certainly guilty of idolatry as if they had bestowed it upon the lowest thing on earth, for it was robbing God of the veneration duo to. him alone, to bestow it upon one of his crea tures. A* the speaker went on to read extracts from the devotional exercises of the Homan Catholic Church, the growing impatience of the delegates began to show Itself in various ways, and, finally, one of them interrupted him to say that the Assembly was perfectly well acquainted with all that Dr. Brccklnzidge was saying, and a recapit ulation of thoseHungs was an unnecessary waste of time. The speaker, however, insisted on pro ceeding. He was sorry, he said, that he bad not been able to interest his audience, many of whom he observed were raiding newspapers, contain ing, doubtless, much more interesting matter than he was laying before them. He went on to say that the Roman Catholics, not content with worshiping the “Alother of God,** worshiped, also, her mother, whom they called St. Ann; in other words, he would go so far as to say they extended their worship to the grandmother of God. He proceeded to speak of the veneration of relics, the attention paid to the Pope's toe, and the use of such ex pressions as “ Our Lord God, the Pope.” Then, observing the Increasing inattention of the As sembly, lie said, “£l must skip a great deal,” at which there was a vigorous, but very unflat tering, burst of applause, at tbc expiration of which the speaker lost several pages of his manuscript, and occupied some minutes in looking for it. After dwelling upon the in sufficiency of Roman Catholic baptism, he re viewed the connection between St. Peter and the Roman Church. 'When Peter denied his dying Lord, and “ began to curse aud swear” he set an example that the Roman Catholic Church had adhered to ever since, much more faithfully than to any other lesson be had taught it. Dr. Breckinridge added that he hoped tue Synod of Alissouri would be satisfied* with Ids discharge of the duty to which it had assigned him. He bad been harassed and hemmed in on all sides, and had not said half he had intended to say. However, the whole address would be: published in the Assembly journal, where the delegates could read it. a Dr. Knox said he agreed with Dr. Breckin ridge in ever}* particular, but he regretted that so long an argument had been considered neces sary to lay it before the Assembly. The Rev. George W. Chamberlain, from Bra zil, spoke bitterly of the infidelity of the Homan Church. If the edict of the General Assembly, he said, should show that Roman Catholic bap tism was valid, and that, therefore, Brazil was a Christian country, he did not think he would ever go back to his old field of labor, but could petition the Assembly to send him to some country where the light of the Gospel had never shone. The Rev. William Wallace Brier, of San Joss, was the first speaker who opposed the overture from the Synod of Alissouri. Roman Catholic baptism, he said, must he considered valid, be cause it was not affected by the moral character of the clergyman who administered it. Perfec tion could not be expected in M Romanism or any other church. Romanism recognized Protestant baptism, and the Presbyterian Church could not afford to be less liberal. “Let us.” he said, “ drop all thesebarsh terms we have been in the habit of using toward our Roman Catholic brethren, aud labor with them hand in hand. Let the delegate from Brazil cease to denounce, and try to purify them.” He spoke of an old Roraau Catholic priest who had passed the best years of a long life among tbc Indians, baptizing them, teaching aud converting them, marrying them, and burying their dead. - fie was loved and ven erated by them all, and, if God willed it, be would ibe among them. Long ago, the speaker said, he had visited the old clergyman during a season of conversion aud revival. The priest, not knowing him, spoke as to a man requiring religious consolation, but when he made himself known they knelt down and prayed for each other, and lor the success of the work among the Indians. “And will you say of this man,” asked Air. Brier, in conclusion, “ that the doc trines he taught were false, that his work among the neglected Indians was anti-Christian, and that the baptism he administered was not '*Aftcr a KfSSS speakers had been heard, it was resolved to refer the whole matter to a committee, with instructions to report at the next General Assembly. PROPOSED JEWISH COLLEGE EDUCATED RABBIS AT A PREMIUM IN AMERICA. yew York Sun, May 20. A Convention o£ delegates from leading Jew ish congregations of the United States assem bled yesterday afternoon at the Howard rooms at Sixth avenue and Forty-second street, to con sider the establishment of a seminary or college in which the Hebrew language and literature and Jewish history and philosophy may be taught, and rabbis may be educated for Ameri can synagogues and teaehers for Jewish schools. The call for the Convention proceeded from the eight principal congregations of this city, at the instance of the “ Emanuel Seminary Associa tion,” a society which was formed by members of the Fifth Avenue Congregation (then located in Twelfth street) ten years or more ago. The invitation to take part in the Convention was accompanied b} T an address,which says that, “notwithstanding the increase of costly houses of worship and the accession to Jewish pulpits of men of learning and eloquence, Judaism has not proportionally gained ground in the hearts of the Jewish people, and especially of the vounger generation.” To remedy this, £ e 'jJ s ‘ 1 theologians trained in an American institution are needed, as well as an opportunity for our young men who devote thcinsclvcs to the sciences, the learned professions, and the higher branches of commerce, to become acquainted with the history, literature, and philosophy of Judaism. These young men aredestincdtobc corae our representatives among the intellectual classes of the country, and we must prevent their estrangement from us during the period of their early studies. Our congregational schools are inadequate for this purpose. The want of rabbis whose nauve language is the English, and who fully understand Ameri can institutions and social customs, and ean in terest and attract the young generation that has grown up on Atiiencan soil (which the Present rabbis of German birth and training, though able scholars, cannot do), has long been a topic of discussion in the United States, and its ur gency has been growing more apparent every f ear. y To meet it the Emanuel Seminary Associa tion was founded. Other assoaationßofasimi lar character have been organized in'othercitlc-, but they have failed to accomplish their pur pose. Very few candidates for rabbinical fion orscamc forward to embrace the opportuni ties of tuition and of financial assistance of fered by these societies.- and of those who did beginhrourseof theological study““de rt lmir •mSnices, none ever completed it.

About fifteen congregations were represented yesterday by delegation, and others from all parts of the country sent communications ex pressing their readiness to render their quota of assistance. Mr. Lewis May, the banker, Presi dent of the Fifth Avenue Congregation, was chosen as Chairman. Letters were read from the Rabbis of New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, ana other cities, in relation to various questions upon which their views had been.asked. The prevailing sentiment was adverse to the es tablishment of an Independent Jewish college ff| ve . a regular course of secular as well as theological education. The founding of pro fessional chairs in connection with sonic Ameri can secular college of established reputa tion was recommended as preferable, for the reason that it would not be so likely to exert a narrowing influence and would be less expen sive. Mr. May announced that there had been communication with various American colleges, and they had sent assurances of their readiness to co-operate. He reported that the Temple Emanuel had voted to contribute $2,000 a year* and that Chief Justice Daly, of the Court of Common Pleasjhod offered* as a contribution the valuable right of his “History of the Jews in America.** Committees were appointed to prepare resolutions, and for other and then the Couvcntiou adjourned to take a dinner in the Harmonic Club rooms, and afterward to 7 o'clock this evening. RELIGION" IN KAEIRLAND. WITCHCRAFT THE LEADING FEATURE. The religion of the Kafirs, like all other va rieties of the “ noble savage,* 1 is nothing more than a vile superstition, accompanied by cus toms of a most debasing character. By this re ligion woman is degraded to the lowest level, and classed among beasts of burden and the goods and chattels of her masters. Polygamy, of course, is’universally allowed, and, under the system of purchase which prevails, the number of wives bears proportion to the wealth of the husband. Concubinage is permitted, and no idea of purity or virtue Is permitted to exist. Witchcraft is the great leading feature of the Kafir religion, and “witch-doctors** are its Sriests. In those places where British in uence docs not exist, a system is regularly carried out, by means of which men with property are sacrificed to the rapacity of the Chiefs. A witch-doctor “ smells out *’ some person who has caused, or Is caus ing, sickness or some evil. Cruel torture, fol lowed by death, are immediately applied to the unfortunate victim, and his wives and cattle ta ken from him. This is an every-day occurrence among the Kafirs, and urgent representations arc very frequently made to the British Colonial authorities upon the subject. The Kafirs believe in a Supreme Being, but most of their rites arc connected with the worship of their deceased ancestors, whose ghosts they endeavor to pro pitiate. A Spiritualist of the nineteenth cen tury holds a belief something similar, and no doubt could fraternize with these savages on the same “religious platform.** Christianity has made no real impression upon them, although the great intelligence and aptitude for learning of the people has been proved at one or two wcll-couductcd industrial institutions. To use the words of an officer of the Government who spent many years among them, “ The Gospel has been preached to them for toe last fifty years, and some attempts have been made towards civilizing them ; but the Kafirs, nationally considered, remain just as they ever were; no visible difference can be ccmed. They are as perfectly heathen now as they were in the days of Vanaer Kemp (one of the first missionaries, 17S0), and so they eveiwill continue so long as their political Government continues to exist in its present pagan form.” This extract points to the fact whidTSir George Grey thoroughly recognized, and of which the Governments of the colonics and States of South Africa must be well aware, that unless the power of the witch-doctors be destroyed, neither can civilization progress, security be se cured, nor Christianity prosper. The one great means of stirring up strife, fomenting war, and binding the people to their cruel and Infamous religion, is the superstitious belief in the powers and influence of their priests, commonly known as witch-doctors. Physically, the Kafir race arc particularly fine. Stalwart, well-formed, manly, and brave. They arc also intelligent, and there are now in and on the borders of theeolonva number of Christians among them. —London Monthly. _ THE BIBLES OP THE EAST. PROP. MAX MULLER’S TRANSLATION. ‘ M. D. Conuxsy in the Cincinnati Commercial. In magnificent coincidence with the first steps for opening Oxford to India, we have Prof, Max Muller’s prospectus for a translation of all the Bibles of the East into the languages of Europe. More than a year ago I wrote you some particulars concerning this stupendous undertaking which the Oxford .Orientalist re solved upon so soon as he had completed his great work of editing the text of the Kig-Vedas. Prof. Max Muller announces that he has secured for this work the co-operation of some of the best Oriental scholars in England and India, and proposes to publish three volumes every year until the whole Is completed. “ What I contemplate at present,” he says, “and lam afraid at my tunc of life even this may seem too sanguine, is no more than a series of twenty four volumes, the publication of which will probably extend over eight years. In this scries I hope to comprehend the following books, though I do not pledge myself to adhere strictly to this outline: 1. From among the Sacred Books of the Brah mans I hope lo give a translation of the Xlvmns of the E!g-Veda. While I shall continue ray transla tion of selected hymns of that Veda, a traduction raUonnee which is intended for Sanskrit scholars only, on the same principles which I have fol lowed in the first volome, explaining every word and sentence that seems to require elucidation, and carefully examining the opinions of previous commentators, both native ami European, 1 intend to contribute a freer translation of the hymns to this scries, with a few explanatory notes only, such as are absolutely necessary to enable readers who are unacquainted with Sanskrit to understand the thoughts of the Vedic poets. The translation of perhaps another SanhiUi, one or two of the Brabmauas, or portions of them, will have to be included in our scries, as well as the principal Upanlshads, thcosophic treatises of great interest and beauty. There is every prospect of an early appearance of a translation of the Bhagavadgita, of the most important among the sacred law books, and of one, at least, of the Puranas. I should have wished to Include a translation of some of the Jain books, of the Granth of the Sikhs, and of similar works, illustrative of the later devolpments of religion in India, but there is hardly room for them at present. _ ~,, . . o The Sacred Books of the Buddhists will be trans lated chlelly from the two original collections, the Southern in Pall, the Northern in Sanskrit. Here the selection will, no doubt, be most difficult. Among the first books to be published will be, I hope, Sutras from the Dlgha Nikaya, a part of the Vinay-pitaka, the Dhamraapada, the Divvavadana, the Lolita-Vistara, or legendary life of Buddha. 3 The Sacredßooka of theZoroaatrians lie with in a smaller compass, but they will require fuller notes and commentaries in order lo make a trans lation intelligible and useful. .... .. 4. The books which enjoy the highest authority with the followers of Kung fu-tze are the King and the Shoo. Of the former the Shoo King or Book of History; the Odes of the Temple and the Altar, and other pieces illustrating the ancient religious views and practices of the Chinese, in the Shi King, or Book of Poetry; the \ih King; the Li KI; and the HiaoKlng, or Classic of Filial Piety, will all be given, it is hoped, entire. Of the lat ter the series will contain the Chung Yung, or Doctrine of the Mean; the Ta Ilio, or Great Learn ing- all Confucius 1 utterances in the Lun Yu or Co°nfuciau Analects, which are of a religions na ture, and refer to the principles of his moral sys tem; and Mang-tze’s Doctrine of the Goodness of Human Nature. , , 5 For the system of Lco-Ue we require only, a translation of the Tao-te-king with some of its commentaries, and, it may be, an authoritative work to illustrate the actual operation of its pnn c^ e por Islam, all that is essential is a trustworthy translation of the Koran. It will be my endeavor to divide the twenty-four volumes which are contemplated in this series as caually as possible between the six religions. But much must depend on the assistance which I re ceive from Oriental scholars, and also on the inter est and the wishes of the public. Among the first volumes to be published will be translations by Prof. Powell, Dr. Legcc, Mr. A. Burnell of Tan jore. Prof. Childers, Prof. Keilborn of Poona, Prof. Eggeiing, and myself. From this it will be seen that Prof. -Max Muller has a sufficiency of congenial occupation before him to last a considerable time, I un derstand that he has already .obtained ample pecuniary guarantees for the publication of the Oriental Scriptures in English,—which will be produced at a cost of about SOs. per volume, and that he has also obtained leave of absence from Oxford for eighteen months. He leaves for Dresden on Monday. RELIGIOUS MISCELXiAinr. the chubob at home and abroad. The Order of the Sisters o£ Charity now numbers oyer 50,000 members throughout the world. « Opposition to the union of Church and State In England is organized and active. A fund of SSOO OOOhas been raised, and within a year near ly a ’thousand meetings have been held and a vast quantity of publications issued. As an evidence of the decline of infant bap tisms in the Methodist Church, it is stated that in the New -Jfork .Eastern Conference, Which comprises 272 churches, only Vi? infants had been baptized during the Conference vear. This is about three-quarters of an infant to each church. The debt of the Philadelphia Young Men’s Christian Association has been reduced to the picayune sum of $127,000. The whole cost of the palatial new building, Including the ground, is $475,000. The trustees still adhere to the de termination, announced some time ago, not to open the building till the debt is paid. The Chicago Alliance, which h >always ranked among the best religious journals of the coun try, makes it a point to constantly improve. It now appears in tinted covers, adding much beauty and four more pages to that justly popular paper. Prof. Swing continues to be the chief, and J. B. McClure the managing editor, and H. L. Ensign remains the business manager. In Madagascar, according to the Missionary Chronicle , the natives take to Christianity readily, but do not comprehend its doctrines. The Secretary of one of the Hova Governors conducts religious services regularly, but re cently being asked about Christ, said he knew nothing about Him or His death. The sacrament is frequently administered, but the natives do not know what it means. It is estimated that the Brooklyn Sunday school parade of last Wednesday cost Brooklyn $40,000. There were 40,000 children on foot, and it is safe to say that the expenses averaged $1 for each child. Ice-cream, bonds of music, flags, banners, cakes, oranges, and other goodies, with new clothing or finery for a great many of the children, make up this sum. Yet the cosh comes in such small amounts, and from so many people, that nobody feels It seri ously. The money goes into the regular chan nels of business, and promotes trade in a healthy way. The only sufferers (and that in an unhealthy way) arc boys, such as the one who dragged his weary way home about tea-time, and told liis mother he had been to three schools, bad eaten sixteen pieces of cake, five plates of ice-cream, and lour oranges. This boy said he was not feeling very well, and that he would like, if there was no objection, to go to bed. y The destruction of the Old South Church In Boston, now going on, calls forth the honest indignation of a great many Bostonians and other patriots. The Church Corporation is wealthy, and might have kept the venerable building standing for at least another century. Some time ago Trinity Church refused $2,000,- 000 for St Paul's, preferring to let it remain be cause of the associations connected with it St Paul's has since been remodelled and beauti fied, *and the services which arc held there regularly arc well attended. The “ Old South ” ought to have been renovated and opened as a free preaching-place, with the most eloquent preacher the country could furnish regularly iu its pulpit. The congregation in their new and costly building may pray with all their might for the conversion of the world, but In their, prayers they should mention, “Except the poor sinners living in that unfashionable part of the city where our forefathers worshipped in the old brick meeting-house.” The clergy of the Church of England are show ing a somewhat unusual and very gratifying in terest in the cause of temperance, taking hold of it with a large degree of unanimity. Their interest is shown not only in efforts to reform the intemperate in their parishes, but also in a strong movement for securing Parliamentary action in connection with the matter. A cleri cal delegation, headed by Bishop Abraham and Canon Ellison, recently waited upon the Archbish op of Canterbury and a number of Bishops, and presented a memorial asking the Bishops to sup port the measure in Parliament for the further re striction of trade in intoxicating liquors. This memorial was signed by 7,857 clergymen, in cluding 11 Bishops, 19 Deans, CO Archdeacons, 43 Canons, 151 honorary Canons, and 125 preben daries. The Archbishop of Canterbury assured the deputation that the Bishops were as much awake to the great evil of intemperance as any body could possibly be, and he was thankful that the Church of England had lately been, he might almost say, taking the most prominent part in drawing the attention of the public to a reasonable and wise mode of dealing with the subject. Any measures introduced into Parlia ment were sure to have the serious attention of the Bishops. PERSONAL. Spurgeon declines a call to lecture in the United States. The Rev. George Peck, D. D., who was broth er of Bishop Peck, was 79 years old when he died, last week. He began preaching when he was IS years old, and did a vast amount of pioneer work in the northern part of Pennsyl vania. Pope Pius IX. was born the 13th of Afay, 1792. He was ordained priest the 13th of April, ISX9. He was consecrated Bishop the 21st of Afay, 1527. He was created a Cardinal Dec. 14, IS4O, and elected Sovereign ’Pontiff June IG, IS4G. He is now in the thirtieth year of his Pontificate, and the 84th year of his age. Dr. Henry A. Boardman has resigned the pas torship of the Tenth Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia. He has been minister of the Church for forty-three years, having been elected in November, 1833. His resignation was tendered on the ground that his failing heal th rendered it impossible to perform all the duties required by his position, aud also on the ground that the welfare of the church demanded that some younger man should occupy his place. President Robinson, of Brown University, in a sermon preached in the First Unitarian Church, of Providence, R. L, recently argued that religion, like the pnysical world, had its epochs and revolutions, aud that the present movement, though bloodless, is deeper and more significant than any preceding one. He said that he was not afraid of progress, but he was convinced that the Christian, religion is more firmly established in the world than ever. The labors of Mr. Aloody aud Air, Sankey in Great Britain arc still bearing fruit. An effort in now making among the evangelical Christians in Dublin, Ireland, to erect a nail In that city which may be made the centre of united effort in the evangelization of Ireland. Agencies will also be earned on among the sailors on behalf of fallen women. The London Mews says that “Mr. Aloody is understood to take an interest in* the success of the movement, and besides giving a handsome sum. he lately spent some days in New York in seeking to advocate its claims on American Christians. The sum of $20,000 is still required to defray the cost of the uncer taking.” The Rev. Dr. Upson, In a memorial sermon to the late Rev. Dr. Sprague, gave the following instances of bis remarkable memory and facility of composition: “Not many months before his death I heard him recite a prayer of President Dwight, which hs had heard him make at Fair field, Conn., in his own youth. It was done with so much reality that for the moment it seemed as if the dignity and impressiveness and commanding presence of the great New En gland teacher had been revived before me. But his Industry and concentrative power and memory in authorship were surpassed, if possible, by his facility in • expression. It has often been remarked that his rapidi ty of composition was marvelous. The Rev. Dr. Ray Palmer, in a recent article,'has said: ‘I have personally known him to write out fully two sermons and preach them both within the same twenty-four hours. A very popular dis course on the text, 4 1 would not live away,* published afterward in The Motional Preacher, was commenced on Sabbath morning and finish ed between the services and preached In the af ternoon. And I have heard indirectly from him self how on one occasion he received notice of the death of an eminent minister in Central New York late in the afternoon of one day, and by the same time In the next afternoon be had writ ten the funeral sermon of that minister, attend ed the funeral, delivered the sermon, and re turned to his study. I have read the sermon to which I refer, and I can discover no Indications of haste in the method of thought or style of expression. The whole production seems per vaded with the thoughtful vigor so character istic of the preacher whose death is commemor ated.’ ’* BREVITIES. By onr pastor perplext. How shall we determine? “Watch and pray,” says the tort; “Go to sleep,” says the sermon. —Boston Globe. Sunday-school teacher —“Annie, what must one do to be forgiven!” Annie—“He must sin.” A young Philadelphian, threatened with a breach-of-proraise suit, says: M Sue away. Con tracts made on Sunday ain’t legal.” Mr. Beecher last Sunday expressed the opin ion that “ the Lord will protect His own.” That is why he wears a lightning-rod over his chim ney.— Graphic, Boston Globe: It’s well enough to talk about praying for rain, but if yon want to fetch it sore, go out without an umbrella, with a new spring hat on. •• My boy,” said a soleran-visaged evangelist to a lad who had just emerged from a hair-pull ing match with another boy, “do you expect to rove hereafter in a land of pure delight! mid burs ted another butv ton off’n my trousers, and I expects to get lick ed for it.” Said a Brooklyn school miss to her companion the other day:’ “Ob, join ourclmrch! There isn’t a man or woman in it that there isn’t some gossip or scandal about I” The disproportion between the weight of a small boy ami the noise of his boot-heels as he walks out of church at the quietest moment is a curious problem in dynamics. An Illinois minister announced on his Sunday night bulletin: “The funeral of Judas Iscar iot.” To which an obliging fellow added: “Friends of the deceased are cordially Invited.” It is noticeable that the invocation of Whit tier’s Centennial Hymn is addressed to “Our Fathers* God.” Probably the poet bad some doubts whether the present generation had one. —Burlington Hausk-Eyt. A pious father entered a saloon with a horse whip one night last week, and found his son playing euchre. He tanned the young man’s jacket and sent him home, and then sat down and finished the game himself. Scene—A Philadelphia market Monday morn ing, a man buying strawberries. Suddenly a thought strikes him, and he says: “Ihope these berries were not picked on Sunday? Mar ket man—“ No, sir; but they grew on Sunday.” New York Commercial: “I specs, my bluv ved hearers,” said a colored parson, “ 1 specs to-day to take a broad field in my ’sconrsc. It takes me a good while to git away from de dock, but when I once strikes de deep water,*den look out for de big fish.” A young clergyman seems to have compressed the whole body of his sermon on “deceit” in the following: “ Oh, ray brethren, the snowiest shirt-front may conceal an aching bosom, and the stillest of all rounders encircle a throat that has many a bitter pill to swallow.” The Massachusetts fanatic who told his neigh bors that the world was certainly coming to an end this month has not yet risen to explain how it was that he came to rent out bis farm for a year ahead of that time, and what’s more, to demand his rent In advance besides. Dr. N. McLeod one day was overwhelmed with work, and the door-bell never ceased to ring, when some one said: - “ I believe that that bell is possessed by an evil spirit.” “Certain ly,” he answered, “ don’t yon know that the prince of the evil spirits is called ‘Bcllzebub,* lor thus torturing hard-worked ministers?” CHURCH SERVICES.
