The able, astute and affable editor of the' Peoria Transcript in the midst of some pro- Jonnd and courteous rcmaiks on the subject ol the tariff, says; “Wc mas' protest against the sbi:d2?s charac acter of’Uc Tuiiivst’s free trade diatribes. Tin ides that an lurrcared duty on a cer*a»u article cocs sot terd to the benefit ol tse Ameri can producer of mat arilctc. Is really new. The Tribune ought lo net a patent on It.” The able editor inadvertently falls into a slight error in denominating opposition to an increase of ataiill already far higher than any previous one “free trade diatribes.” lu Henry Clay’s time, a tariff framed by himself which averaged thirty-three per cent, was called by friendandfoea “ protectivetariff,” but our talented friend in Peoria has pro prcwul a {Treat tvo j beyond the old fogy notions of Clay on that subject. The “idea,” be says, “that an increase of duty on an article docs not tend to the ben efit of the American producer of that article, is really net c.” We don’t claim to be its originator, os it was borrowed from the Hon. Justin S. Morrill, Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, who is the leading “pro tectionist” in Congress. He declared, in his elaborate and carefully prepared speech, of January24,lßo7, “that the year 1800, just previous to the war, i can the most prosperous one, y* oft respects, that our country ever expe rienced,” which is undoubtedly the fact. The value ofthe manufactured products of that jear exceeded tiro thousand milUour iu ’gold. The tariff then levied was only twenty percent., with a large free list besides. Since then the tariff lias been increased eleven lime% and Mr. Morrill has been an influen tial advocate of each addition to it. The tweqly per cent rates of tbe prosperous year iscO, Late been swollen to upwards of sixty per cent, including the late wool and ■woollen addition toil. How much have these clt veu increases of the tariff benefited or “ pro tected” the “American producers of arti cles ?” How much more flourishing and prosperous are our manufacturers note, with 00 per cent on Imported products, than they were when the impost was but *2O per cent, or one-third as high ? Let Mr. Morrill answer the question. In his recent speech on the Internal Revenue tax bill, he said; “If there are any gentlemen who disbelieve the recitals enreemhu idle factories, forges, rur tiac's end four-dt lee, and uho think that we or* s;lll on the (op icore vfprosperi 'y, and so maybe willing to vcLlore a deeper cu« into our revenues, 1 invite them to look at the comparative returns of some of our principal railroads, to the present B*ale of onr navigation Interest*, to the decline of the commerce of oar canals, to onr diminished extort trade in cattle, horses, hogs, beef, batter, cot»en and manufactures of cotlon, iron, copper nnd together wi'h numerous other articles. 3 his Is an exj>Ggi'ion of which lUaze tU f d'tAle, but which 1 shall not, unless compelled to do so, place upon the records.” Now, if eleven additions to the tariff in the short space of six years, being one every V, eSftaTKitfis, have wrought this disastrous yfcg-effcct on the productive industry of the 'r country, is it rational to suppose that a txcilfih increase of the tax will restore pros perity or “protect” the interests of the people? The necessities of the Government require high duties to produce sufficient revenue for its support, ard it Is useless to dispute and wangle over the abstract or relative merits of “free trade” and prohibition. The Gov ernment can afford to adopt neither system, for cither -would he destructive of revenue from imposts. For seventy years the Gov ernment has been mainly supported by duties levied on imported property, and we presume will be for the next seventy. With the interest and principal of a national debt of $2,300,000,090 to pay; with a pension list caused by the rebellion, of SUO,COO,OX) per annum ; with two or three hundred millions yet due and unpaid to our veteran soldiers to equalize their bounties ; with the cost of oar great California rail ways and other projected works of inter state Improvement to be provided for, be sidesthe army and navy to be maintained, and ail the other expenses of the Govern ment to be met. the proposition of free trade or prohibition becomes an abstraction for protestors of political economy to discuss before their classes, but neither would be possible to adept in the existing condition of Federal affairs. amount of duties levied oy any tariff whether high or low la ultimately paid out of the pockets of the consumers of the goods and not by the for eign manufacturers. Whatever rate the tariff may be, it is a tax on oursdves. Some people think that American industry derives an incidental benefit trora this tax on our imported property. They have an idea that the duty in some way hinders and pre vents importation, aud causes more articles to he mace in this country than otherwise would be bat for the tax, and this snpposed obstruction to the acquisition of property of foreign production is called “ protection,” and is deemed beneficial to the country. But another class of people equally numerous, as well as sincere in their convictions, hold to just the contrary opinion. They deny that protection to industry Is found in a tar iff, and contend that a tariff is nothing more or less than indirect taxation of the people, and should be no higher than is sufficient to furnish the necessary amount of revenue for the support of the Government; they admit that with the present needs of the Government the tariff must continue for a long time to come to be very high. But they insist that it is already at high water* mark, and should he reduced rather than increased. These : opposite views of the effect of a tariff on the industry of the country are held with equal sincerity and tenacity. Nobody has an interest In being deceived as to the truth of the matter, It may be possible that each side is partly right and partly wrong. The Chicago Tribune believes, from all the lights it can collect and investigation it has made, that a higher tariff than the existing one is not needed for revenue purposes, and would be injurious to the public weal. We cannot discover that an increase of indirect taxation “ protects” industry or promotes production, nor can we comprehend how the interests of the people are benefited by en hancing the cost of living or making manufac tured products dearer to the consumer. It is an undeniable fact that after each addition to the duties, the makers and sellers of do mestic goods advance their prices to corres pond with the increase of the tariff, and that no additional market for domestic articles is obtained, tor the simple reason that thopur oLocor line no pecuniary inducement held out to blm to prefer the domestic to the for eign article. This advance in the prices of both home and imported goods causes an ad vance in the cost of living, and in the rates of wages, and consequently an equivalent In crease, in the expense of subsequent produc tions of fabrics. Therefore it Is, that foreign gcodsflow intothe countryjnst as briskly un der tbe present fifty-six per cent, tariff as under tbe twenty per cent- duties of ISCO ; and the present high tariff proves in practice to be even less “protective” or effective in hindering importation than the low tariff of six years ago, while it is almost destructive to exportations of our manufacturers. From this survey of the subject would it not be proper and advisable 'for papers like the Transcript to modify their epithets, and restrain their intemperate ical for excessive duties? The Ciiicago Tribune has perhaps forty limes greater pecuniary stake than the Transcript in the material welfare of the country, and consequently forty times great, cr pecuniary reasons for advocating that tar iff system which will do the most good and least harm to the people. Whatever financial system Injures them also injures it, and vice versa. The Tribune’s opinions on the tariff question arc not warped by old chronic prejudices or controlled by partisan aims; but it is a sincere seeker after the truth. The Bepuhlican party is not com mitted either to free trade or prohibition, to a high tariff or a low tariff; therefore in the discussion of this topic there should be perfect toleration of opinion and candid and dispassionate investigation of tbe subject in all its aspects and relations to the public good. THE STKVEWS COXISIITTEE. In the House of Representatives on Fri day, Mr. Stevens made an attempt to resur rect the so-called Reconstruction Committee, which fortunately expired with the Thirty ninth Congress. He was temporarily thwart* ed under the ojieration of the two-lhirds rule; but the vote showed a majority to be in favor ol his motion. He will doubtless try It again; but we hope he may not suc ceed. The country wants no such commit tee. Its history shows that it was the chief obstacle in the way of reconstruction during tbo last session. Its study seems to have been “how not to do itand if it is revived it should be named the Obstruction Commit tee. All- propositions in regard to reconstruction were referred to •without debate, and that was the last ever heard of them. Not until a few days prior to the adjournment did it bring forward any proposition whatever; and that was a proposition to remand the South under military rule, without disturb ing the President’s so-called civil govern ments in the Southern States. It was, in fact, a proposition to postpone tho subject of reconstruction indefinitely. Congress spurred on by the people, who had grown restive and indignant at the inexcusable delay, so amended the bill that, wheu it finally passed it, retained scarcely a trace of the original, and was accepted by the loyal party as a very satisfactory measure. The country will not soon forget that the work of reconstruction was at last accom pitched In spite of Mr. Stevens and his com mittee ; and with this fact impressed upon their mind they have no desire to sec that committee revived. Furthermore, the work of reconstruction is now so far an accomplished fact that there is no immediate call for the further action of Congress, unless it he to provide certalu de tails for carrying oat the measure, which shall in no wise effect its fundamental princi ples. The terms have been prescribed and the promise distinctly made, -that whenever they are complied with the Southern States shall be admitted to the Union. That prom ise must and will he kept. The people of the South are already preparing to organize mi der the new plan'. Virginia takes the lead, and her action will bo followed rapidly by tbe other insurrectionary States. Does Mr. Stevens propose to disturb tbe basis of restoration established by the Thirty ninth Congress ? If not, why seek to reani mate the close-corporation, the reconstruc tion monopoly, of which he stood as the acknowledged head ? We believe tho resur rection of that committee would have a ten dency to discourage tbo Sooth in its evident disposition to act. It would create a fear that after all the, terms ofthe new Reconstruction law are not final and that still other condi tions will be Imposed. If Mr. Stevens enter tains any such idea be entirely misappre hends the sentiment ofthe Northern people. They are satisfied with tho terms prescribed in the new law, and they will insist that tbe agreement to admit the rebel States, on compliance, shall be carried out in good faith. The loyal party of the nation is not influenced by any desire to wreak vengeance on the South, and is as much opposed to vindictive legislation or bad faith on.the part of their representa tives, as they are to the President’s original policy of unconditional restoration. Any attempt to disturb the adjustment now so happily within reach, will subject Us author to the contempt and indignation of every honest man. THE LATEST “ IMCVOCUING IQO.V ST£R.» The New York Work?, in an article of tbe most rabid character, and which surpasses in denunciation the fulminationa of “ Admi ral ” Serames, holds up the Reconstruction Law to the horror of mankind, and for rea sons which It will be well for mankind to study. 'For instance, it says: “ In South Carolina, where the black population ;s largely m excess of the white, the Stale Govern ment is. for all eflecilvc purposes, made over from tbe white to the black race: and also In every other State where tbe union of tbe white citizens Is not so compact and unbroken chat no while faction can be found to co-opcrate with the ne groes ” Is it not horrible that in this , nineteenth century, while alljtbe nations ofthe*earth are throwing off the chains which restrain tbe liberty of tbe people, South Carolina—aye South Carolina, should feel the hand of ren ovation, and that the Government of the State should be taken away from the minori ty and actually placed in the hands of the majority! This offence esceedeth human endurance. The KiugofPrussia hasdecreed universal suffrage throughout Notbern Ger many; but for the United States to extend the same privilege to South Carolina, and place it in the power of the majority of the voters to elect the officers of the State, Is an unprecedented outrage for which there can be no extenuation. The TTbrfrf continues: “Judge Comstock states That mgro suffrage Is be real hinge of the entire controversy ; but he tails to recognize that negro satlragc is so ex plicitly enacted In the bill as to leave to the South no other choice than how they will manage u. If bis advice U followed, the State Govern- T)Cf.ts will bo Africanized by the defection of whiles eiionpb to make tbe negroes a majority, rod coi.trof their vote In tae interest of the Ibn-Scals.” Ib it not atrocious that negro suffrage U so explicitly enacted that it cannot be repudia ted ? And is it not horrible to contemplate that, in those States 'where the whites are in a majority, a sufficient number of the whites will inevitably vote with the negroes, and thus rule the State ? The fact that a majority ought to rule may do very little In a city where the constituency elect such men as Brooks, Wood and Morrissey, but when that rule Is applied to a State where the ma jority -will plpot. quite a different class of representatives, then the majority rule becomes insupportable, and it is “infamous” ! to require the minority to submit to be de prived of a supremacy which they have in herited from their ancestors. If these negroes would vote the rebel ticket, then the “ Africanization” of the South would be no wrong, because it would show a people united In the cause of treason : but when these colored men will vole the Union ticket, then the tyranny Is unendurable, and “ liber ty lies hurled in the grave of the Consti tution.” The TTorW proceeds : Would U were true, that the Pont hern people still retain pos>es-iou of their S'ate Governments! Dot the negro svjfrog* monster is let loose acorgst them, and no choice is lef* but either to manage it, or be devoured by it. Further oppo -itl(.n to it is Idle, because h cacnot be prevented ; nay. it is vor«e than idle, becaa-e opposition will •our and repel the negro mmd, and give it over to the control of the Radicals.” The “monster” Is certainly loose, and that it will “devour” the last vestige of treason and rebellion is the prayer of every friend of the country. The policy of “managing” a monster of that kind Is certainly the best, if it is possible; that it is possible there is uo no doubt. Let every man prominent In the rebellion and notorious for bis treason re tire from political life; let him give place to some other man who can show recommenda tions not written in his country’s blood, and a record unstained by treason to his conntry; iben, the monster will cease to devour be cause-ofthe want of something to be de voured; then the monster will be disarmed of Lis tenors, and can be led by a child. Having exhausted Us rhetoric upon the de vouring monster, the World changes Us figure, and styles impartial suffrage a “ dag ger,” and it then gives this advices: “if a robber stabs at you with a dagger, we humbly submit that It is no recognition oi Lis right, if yon promptly seize his hand, reverse the weapon, and plunge it into his own heart. Such a weapon is negro suffrage, and such the advice wc give to the south.” The “dagger” business has been tried. The “ Northern robbers,” the World should remember, “invaded” the Southern “sov ereignties” sometime in ISCI, and contin ued to “Invade” them until those Sov ereignties collapsed. Since then the South ern heroes and statesmen have been snclng, on bended knees, to the robbers for pardon for attempting to “ stab them to the heart.” Still, if the rebels can seduce the negroes to vote for them; if they can succeed In making the “Africanized” States vote the Democratic ticket; if they can make the negro majority vote with the white minor ity, let them do it. Impartial suffrage ad mits the right of all men to vote as they please; and all the Radicals demand is that all men shall have that privilege. pciTlt Is announced that a new dally paper is to he started in New Orleans, to he called the Republican. Ex-Governor Michael Hahn is to have charge of it, which is a sufficient pledge that It will he on the right side In politics. He is not without newspaper ex perience, having for a time been the editor and proprietor of the New Orleans True Delta. He narrowly escaped assassination during the massacre of July 30lh, having been rescued from the hands of the mob by the determined efforts of certain policemen who were friendly to him. There is now no loyal paper published in New Orleans, ex cept the Trwune , a email sheet published by negroes, half In English and half in French. in the new Congressional Committees, a Wall street speculator. Morgan, is made Chairman of Fitance.— Times. This is not true. The Chairman of the Senate Committee Is Hon. John Sherman, of Ohio. The old committee was divided into Finance and Appropriations for the ex press purpose of placing Senator Sherman at the head of the former and Senator Fessen den at the head of the latter. Mr. Fessen den declined serving, and consequently Sen ator Morrill, of Maine, who stood second on the Appropriation Committee, became its Chairman. The Mate Uuokc Swindle. We are Informed by a letter from W. A.

General Howard bad an interview with the Judiciary Committee of the Senate to-day in regard to his recommendations for relief for the suffering people of the South, and subsequently Judge Trumbull reported a joint resolution from that committee appro priating one million of dollars to enable tho Secretary of War to supply food to tho needy in that section. The debate thereon occu pied about two hours—several Senators ex pressed great reluctance to voting for it on tho ground that it was not within the prov ince of Congress, but it finally passed with out a division. General Howard estimates the number of whites who will need food from some source before tbe nest crops are .made at thirty-two thousand six hundred and sixty-two; and the negroes twenty-four thousand two hundred and thirty-eight.

TWO MAI OHS FOR ALEXANDRIA. Bothjof the gentlemen voted for as Mayor ol Alexandria, at the election last week, have been sworn Into office. Tucker was elected, If the negro vote Is counted, and Latham, if that is thrown out. The case will go Into the courts and bring a decision as to the ’scope of the new Reconstruction Law, unless Congress sets the election aside. TEE INDIAN BUREAU CONTROVERSY, Senator Harlan’s defence, this afternoon, of the management of Indian affairs by the Interior Department, was very vigorous, and his denunciation of the military policy' in dealing with the question very severe.

Mr. HENDERSON, from tho Committee on Indian Affairs, called un tho House bill for the appropriation of $-0,000 to pay the expenses of Indian Commissioners. Sir. WILSON presented a petition of the citizens of Alexandria to delay action on the bill annulling the elections In Alexandria until the citizens had an opportunity to be heard on tbe subject. Mr. WILSON said, .since offering the resolution referred to, he had been waited upon by a delegation from Alexandria, Who assurea him that they did not believe tho late act of Congress applied to their late election, as no District Commander had been appointed, and in tbe May election they should receive the votes of negroes un der the Military Law.

Tlio Day Fony-liigiit noun Lons. week we showed that the first begin ning of the day Is somewhere between Amer ica and Asia. The precise locality of that somewhere has not been determined. If the Pacific Ocean were thickly populated with men. the place of the beginning of the day would be a matter of great consequence, and would probably be settled by statute. The day would start from a meridian line extend ing from pole, and the longitude of this day line would be so accurately fixed that a man might stand astride It and realize the para dox of having one foot in Monday and the other in Tuesday. Many of the readers of this will live long enough to hear this sub ject discussed in national councils. Wc propose now to show that Monday or : any other week day is forty-eight hours long; we mean that during the whole of forty-eight hours, Monday is on caitb somewhere to bo found. The Monday of Ibis city Is of course twenty four boms long, but before and alter our Monday there is Monday in some other quarter. When Monday begins in New York, there have been three hours of Mon day in London, and for three hours after our Monday cuds there will be Monday in San Francisco. Thus between these places Mon day lasts eighteen . hours. Now if the day line were nt our antipodes, Monday would begin their twelve hoars before ours, and end twelve hours after ours. Thus, for the space of forty eight hours the earth Is not rid of Monday. The fact may be Illustrated la another way. Suppose wc are at the day line. Monday there begins, and in twenty-four hours along comes Tuesday. But Just west (half an inch if you please) Monday began only an instant before it ended cast of the line. The Mon day cast of the line Is twenty-four hours long, and west of the line is the same length, ana in all, Monday lasts forty-eight hours.— Scientific American ,j Cholera* At a meeting of the health department of the Social Science Association lately held in London, Dr. Bain read a paper on his expe rience of four cholera epidimlcs. The result of the author’s observaeions may bo summed up ns follows: “That spasmodic cholera Is caused by a special organic poison. That it is communi cated by material particles either inhaled or swallowed when dhlased in liquids, as wa ter; in the former case it Is cotnmuuicated on a small scale. That the period of Incu bation is about 40 hours. That adult males arc generally first attacked,then women and children. That the proportion of deaths in the first two or three weeks of the epidemic averages four-males to three females. That all persons are not equally susceptible, bat, as a rule, it has the most power overtbc bad ly nourished. That it is not Influenced by the atmospheric changes of the barometer, or the quantity of ozone, hut in th'S climate by the seasons. That the greatest mortality has always occurred during every epidemic in those districts in which the water is most impure.” A Spoony King* Tbe gossip who contributes tbe Echoes from tbe Continent to tbe Herald and Stand ard, Loudon newspapers, In his last commu nication writes as follows about the ap proaching marriage of King Louis of Bava ria with the Princess Charlotte of Austria: Their mutual affections dates from infancy, but it was at the recent hall given by the King to the officers of his army that bis Majesty dared to ask the hand of the young Princess. The King left tbe bail room only when the sun had risen, and instead of re turning to the palace he took a long drive. On his return he wrote for some time, and then ordered a letter to be forwarded at once to the palace of the Duke Maximilian, with pressing instructions to deliver bis mis sive to the Princess Char’otto as soon as she should awake. At noou the King-came him self to the ducal palace, and tremblingly asked the Princess, “Charlotte, will you be the Queen of Bavaria?” The love for his bcantiful cousin must be very strong indeed, because such & direct question was rather astonishing from his Majesty, proverbially so very timid and diffident with ladies 1 anlyet (adds this dreadful tale-bt arcr) ladles have been very partial to the King. THE SITSTEBIODS WOMAN. jin. Perry, of Cincinnati—Who She Is and »bat Site Is— Site Tells Her Own Story—Letter from President Johnson. IFiom the Cincinnati Tiroes, March S.j For several days the telegraph has been re ferring to “Mrs; Jennie Perry, of Cincin nati,’’ in connection with the late Internal revenue frauds in New York,' and the public has had the satisfaction of knowing that her share of the spoils, in a single case, was $3,000. Who this “Mrs. Jennie Perry, of Cin cinnati,” is, has been asked us a hundred times within a few days, and the GaztUe, of this city, in an editorial, yesterday morning, propounded the same question—a question we shall proceed, now, to answer ; or rather allow the woman herself to tell her own 6t |omo llrao In tlio latter .r-H of October last a case came np before the P» obate Court of this county relating to the custody of a child, which certain friends of her late hus band had taken in charge. Mrs. Perry •claimed the child,"which claim was contest ed by Mr. Cooper and wife, and Louis French, guardian of the little girl and attorney for the Coopers. The first witness called on the stand was airs. Perry herself, who proceed ed as follows : “I am the widow of William Perry, late ao engi neer iu the naval service of the United States, andSm the stepmother of the little girl. Emma Pern*, now about fiveycara of age, whose custody I claim to recover from these defendants. In May la4t Mr. Cooper and his wile bad the costody of tbo child, uiider an agreement with me to take enrevof her until - my return trom Washington, . where I bad to go on business in connection with the claims of my husband lor prize money and backpay, and also on by two New York gentlemen, Edward R- Phelps and T. J. Barr. 1 was absent afew months, from January to Jane, and on my return found that, through false rcpiosematlonsto the Court. Emma was an orphan, and bad been deserted by her rel atives: the appointment was obtained by Mr. Lonls'Frcnch as guardian, ami tbo custody traits- Itrred by him to the Coopers. I had never In tended to part with tbechlld.” The rcspomlents denied the averments in Mrs. Perry’s petition, and Mr. French cross examined her as to the matters elicited in her testimony. Q. Did yon remain all the time at Washington during yonr absence from here ? A. fwas in New York a short time, and was or dered back. Q. lly whom ? A. By Messrs. Phelps & Barr,' of New York." -- q.- Did (hey hold any Government ofllca ? A. None that I know of at that limo. 1 went back-partly on.their business, and partly on my own. Thu amount of prize money I exptet-d was Irom fin.OiO to C2IMW. My expenses wero paid at Washington by Messrs. Phelps & Barr. A paper was read here purporting to be an agreement between the witnesses and these two gentlemen, by which Mrs. Perry was to use her influence in obtaining for them the Government patronage in relation to the “General Order Business” of the customs in New York city, from the Battery to Pier No. 50—Mrs. Perry to have for her services an undivided one-third of the profits. A letter she had obtained from Henry J.- Raymond to the President, on this matter, was also read, and un endorsement intended for the eye- of the Collector of Customs, as follows: “Mr.- K. It. Phillips having hern recommended by the Hon. □. J. Raymond ard other Ropreacnta- U\C3 in Congress trom New York, I shall be glad if the general order business from the Battery to Pier No. 59 on the North River can, consistently with the interests of tbe Government, be given to Messrs. T. Jj Barr and Edward R. Phelps. (Signed) “Andrew Johnson.” Fut liter cross-examination developed tho fact that she was a regular lobbyist at Wash ington, In the employ ol certain New York men, and that she was on the most intimate terms with members of Congress and others, over whom she exercised great influence—as great, perhaps, as that which she succeeded in bringing to bear upon the President. After she had bceu thoroughly cross-ex amined by Mr. French, Mrs. Harriet John son was called to the eland, and said that Mrs. Perry had proposed to her (witness) to go to Washington, offering to Introduce ber to a number of gentlemen friends, but this was refused. Alter that several other witnesses were called-and one lady testified that she had seen men pass into her apartments at night and pass out iu the morning. Judge Woodruff, in giving his decision, did not feel any reluctance in deciding that tho best interests of the child did not require a change, and he would therefore dismiss tho petition, and leave the child in its present bilnathm. The costs will be assessed upon both parties. Aftcrthe decision was rendered, Mr?. Perry approached Mr. Cooper, and, with Hashing eyes, said : “ Mr. Cooper, may God forgive you lor the wrong you have done me.” Mr. Cooper made some reply, when she added: “ Yes. you have wronged me, terribly wrong ed me.” Here her attorney interfered, and stopped an impending “scene.” We believe that Mrs. Perry, during her stay here, occupied rooms on the corner of Fourtli and Sycamore streets. OWTUABY. Joshua Sonic, (be Senior Bl*liopof (be metbudlst Cbarcb lu America, [From the Nasbvhlo Union aud Dispatch, March 7.J * Joshua Soule, Senior Bishop of the Meth odist Church in America, died at bis in this city, ’on the morning of yesterday, alter u brief illness, lie had more than half completed his eighty-sixth year, having been born August 1, 1781, In Bristol, Hancock County, Maine. He became a con vert to the system of religion in which he lived and died, in Lis sixteenth year ; and at the Conference of the Methodist Church, held in New' York in 170 y, he was admitted os a preacher in the itineracy of that denom ination. lie labored in this capacity with great success and growing influence, In the States of Maine and Massachusetts, until the meeting of the General Assembly In ISI6, when he was elected to the responsible posi tion of Senior Agent of the Book Concern. The sterling traits of bis character bad al ready made him one of the most prominent members of the ministry. Eight years pre viously he hud been at the head of the Gen eral Committee which framed the Constitu tion, so to speak, of American Methodism. The framing of the delegated General Con* fereuco was the work of bis hand, and that section in the code oi Discipline of tbe Church remains a monument to his fame. At the time of Lis assuming charge of the Book Establishment, tbe Mel/toJist Miiyizlne was ordered by the Conference, and its pub lication was under the editorial supervision of Mr. Soule. Mr. Soule continued In this department of labor until IS2O, when ho was elected to the office of Bishop. The General Conference, however, at the same session, determined by vote a question which bad lone agitated its councils, regarding the mode of selecting Presiding Elders; and, according to Mr, Soule’s view, the decision was contrary* to the organic law of the Church, and derogate jy to the Episcopal functions. He, therefore, declined to he consecrated. In this position he was supported by Bishop McKcudree,

then at the head of the Church,who protest ed igains’t it. By the combined influence of Soule and MeKcndrec, the decision was sus pended until the next quadrennial Confer ence, and finally reversed. lalß’J4, be was again elected Bishop and consecrated on the 27th of May of that year. This exalted trust be fulfilled to the period of his death, in the fear of God, and acceptably to the great bedy of Christians whose doctrines ho expounded, and illustrated by an Irreproach able walk and conversation. In 1840, Bishop Soule was selected from among his Episco pal colleagues to represent-the Church in this country, at the Wesleyan Methodist Conference in England, a mission which lie dischaiged in a manner as satisfactory to the British connection, os It was creditable to himself. At the General Conference In New York In 1844 which resulted in the division of the Church on a sectional line, Bishop Sonic exerted his great powers and in fluence to prevent the schism, and labored to induce the dominant majority to adjust the question. in dispute upon the principles of constitution al Methodism. His efforts failed, and when the division came, he united with the South ern branch, and removed his residence to this vicinity, and has ever since been a citi zen of Tennessee. It was in 1843 that Bish op Soule became the senior Bishop of the connection.. In person ho was tall and erect, with a 'well Knit frame ; his face and head were in* dicative of ability and force of character with which ho impressed the sphere.of duty in which he acted ; bla manners were grave and solemn ; his port was dignified and ma jestic. Bis pulpit discourses were elaborate and philosophical, never ornate, but always f>eivaded with a sincerity and depth of feei ng which made them powerful. The feebleness Incident to great ago had, for some years, him from ac* live service, bnt his intellect was clear, and he was held os the father of the Church; His zeal was as fervent as when, In tho “dew of his youth,” nearly three score and ten years ago, he gave himself to the ministry, and to tUc limit of his strength he continued to la bor. In bis closing hours he was conscious, and approached tbe last scene with equa nimity and perfect resignation, confident In the belief he had taught, and reliant on the merevofthe Savior in whoso vineyard ho had wrought so long and faithfully. By his death, bis people have lost the eldest and ablest oftbeir counsellors, and Christendom a truly great and good man. IUTUAIISM. nidi ClmrcU.lnnovallonslu New. York -4 Kovel and Sensational Episcopal Service* . [From the New York Express. March 7.1 The recent protest of a majority of the Bishops of the Episcopal Church seems to have lullcn as lightly on the cause of Ritual ism os a snow-flake on the earth. The fact was amply illustrated, to-day, in St. Alban’s Chapel—the centre of ceremonial worship, which has been repeatedly honored by the Eresence and the approval of Bishop Potter, i that sacred edifice, Ash Wednesday was celebrated by tbe solemn penitential services and ceremonies to which tbe mitred heads of the communion have taken emphatic and denunciatory exception. The services In honor of the day commenced in the chapel at ten o’clock ibis morning, bat before that time every seat was occupied by a congregation whose uniform responses and obedience to the liturgical usages of the temple, indicated they'were regular.worship pers • In the centre of tbe altar was a massive golden crucifix, with great tapers on either side. In front appeared a magnificent anil pendium of purple cloth, bcaringa figure of the Lamb and flic Cross. The Pulpit, Lec tern and the precincts of the Sanctuary were similarly ornamented, and on the Gospel and Epistle sides were circular clusters of services commenced by an imposing procession ol the clergy and choristers, from the robing room to the chancel, all chanting tbe old English hymn used during Lent, Forty days and iorty nights.” When the officiating priests reached the altar, they bowed reverently before the cru cifixion—the congregation following their example. The clergy, consisting of Rev. Mr. Morrell, Rev. Mr. Noyes, ana Rev. El nicndorf, took scats opposite tbe Lectern, outside the altar, and the Rev. Mr. Elmen-' dorf commenced Morning Prayer. The ser vices—Ten Ue t and JJcnedkite, were sung to Anglican chants Alter morning prayer Rev. Mr. Noyes pro ceeded to the centre of the chancel, near the altar rails, and Intoned the Litany—the re sponse being of a choral order. At the name of Jesus, be, in common with all present, reverently bowed bis bead, and at the Gloria all present turned their faces towards the altar, or the Ritualistic East. The rector here announced tha Introit for the day—the fifty-first Psalm, and while this was being chanted all the clergy retired. While the last yerelclo of the Psalm was being rendered, Rev. Mr. Morrell and Ber. Mr. Noyes, with the acolytes and choristers, moved again in procession towards the altar. The choristers at once filed to their respec tive stalls, and only'Rev- Hr. Morrell' and Rev. Mr. Noyes, with a' ear pliced acolyte, entered within the rails of the sacred piece. The former acted as the officiating priest, and the latter as his assistant. Mr. Morrell appeared in a beauti ful chasuble, surplice, and stole, of purple, and the first of these vestments was orna mented with a lamb bearing a cross, both la the back and breast. Having made a gen uflexion at the foot of the altar, the priest ascended the triple steps and bowed down before the crucifix, beneath which was a cha lice covered with a purple cloth in the cen tre of which was a white cross. ; The assistant priest, or deacon, took his position at the epistle side. When the cele brant had bowed before the emblem of re demption, he proceeded to the Gospel side, where the Bible and prayer hook had been placed, and offered thfi Initiatory prayer of the communion service—his “back being to the people.” The tapers on the altar had been previously lighted by an acolyte, and the bells tolled in honor of the service. ; The priest then turned to the congregation and read the commandments —after which his assistants read the Epistle and the Gospel from the respective positions on the altar, after which they are named, the celebrant occupying a position in the centre before the crucifix. The priest then left the altar and ascended tbo pulpit outside the chancel. In a mo ment, having opened a Bible, he made the sign of the cross ou his forehead, breast and arms, and all present followed his example. In performing this ceremony, he said: “ In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.” At the name of the Father, he placed bis hand on his forehead; at the name of the Son on his breast, at the name of the Holy- Ghost on his left arm, and at the amen, on bis right. The reverend gentleman then delivered an eloquent and forcible discourse on the an cient observance of Lent and the necessity of penitence, especially at this holy season. At the close of the sermon he ascended the altar, and officiated In the Eucharistic services, during which he made solemn gen uflexions before the crucifix and chalice. The ceremonies closed with the benediction, and the immense congregation left the tem ple apparently impressed by the worship in which they had participated. On last Sunday morning, a well-dressed in dividual entered the chapel and distributed among the worshippers copies of the pro test of the Episcopal Bishops against Ritu alism. He was obliged to leave the edifice, but his conduct greatly exasperated all present, as It was calculated to provoke a , breach of the peace by interfering with the ceremonies. ■ FEDERAL EXPENSES.

Shooting Kcvclattous. A scientific writer in the London Lanct, having investigated the subject, has demo.- etrated by experiment that in every ehignot, not composed of tbe natural hair of tie wearer, there are myriad parasitica, namd cri’gunucs,whicn Infest cacti individual hoi. These insects are invisible, except by micr scopic test, but in their substance and hub is are more offensive than the famed gray-tak wbich made Libby Prison anch a den of bc ror. On every half inch of each hair area thousand of these inexpressibly disgustis? epizoa. They “live, move and havo tber being” In millions unon each hair of thecAj uon, and when the myriad hairs tb.t compose these ** adornments ” are cc»- sidcicd, tbe numbers of the nl nute and abominable eplzoa ire “ as tbe sands on the sea shore, or os tie stars of Heaven for multitude.” Subject'd to a moderate degree of heat, they becoae instinct with life, and wander at will amour and around the capillary cells, “ seckiig wbat they may devour.” Each Is upediuhs humani cupUi*, as much so os the Identical one on wbich Burns wrote the ode, wbm he saw it 44 on the lady's bonnet.” Neithjr acids, a l -kalis, ether, nor 350 degrees of dry beat kills them. Practically toey are Inde structible. According to the authority quoted, in the conditions of a ball-room the giegailnes 44 revive, grow, and multiply by dividing into many parts—called germ globules ; these fly about the ball room in millions, get inhaled, drop on the refresh ments—in fact, enter the interior of people by hundreds of ways, and thus reach their specific gregarian development.” In Russia the hair for them is supplied by the poorer people, especially peasant wo men of theilordwines and the Burlakes,near the Volga, who do a large trade in it. 44 When the Burlako goes out lo work In the spring, he perhaps pats a clean shirt on, bat be decidedly never takes it off until he re turns home in autumn.” Verily, here is a fine chance for parasites. A learned professor !□ London has actually practically tested and demonstrated the vi tality of these parasites. Six hairs of a chig non, subjected to 120 degrees of heat, and placed around the neck af a hen, which had been clean shaved for the purpose, he placed the bird in front of a stove for a short time. He tells the result as follows; “At the end of this period the ‘grega rines* which bad been placed In felt were carefully examined. They had undergone great development, ana more than a score showed unmistakable slgusoflifc. But on re moving the hairs from the neck of the ben and placing them nuder the microscope, a most extraordinary change in the ova ap peared to have taken place. Tne hairs were swarming with the released eplzoa; nearly all, indeed, were more or leas detached from the envelope, and presented many of the ficcnliaritica of the 'ptdiculus humani capitis.* n many the mouth was furnished with a probocls, the antennal as long os the thorax, and the depressed segments of the abdomen were clearly visible. It was abundantly evi dent that no process to which the hair has yet been submitted had even impaired, much less destroyed, the vitality of the ‘grega riDea.* ” • The horrible facts of the shore inrcstljra tion me of extreme concern to the ladles, who hare so numerously adopted the habit .of wearing these purchased chignons, and many will hesitate longerto carry upon their heads a load of disgusting parasities, whose origin is only less appalling than their im mense number, their unlimited potter of re production, their easy awakening from dor mancy into activity, and their security from either detection or destruction. Let the la dies ponder. THE PEDiCESS OF WALES. Interesting Intelligence* the nnEtniAxiSii BCXLimrr. [From the London Times, Feb. 20.

Xne Landseer Itlons. The Saturday Jttviae complains that the country is asked to pay to Baron llarochettl, for the casting of the Trataigar Square lions, about twice as much as Sir E. Landseer re ceives lor eight years’ labor in designing and modelling them. The Baron asks not less than £II,OOO for the casting, althoagh “ our best English Arm” offered to do it for £ft.ooQ. On the other hand, the “.Flaneur” of the 2Tomii>g Star says: It is violating no cofldenco to state that S*r Edwin Landseer is not merely thoroughly satisfied with the stare which Baron Maro chelti’s staff offounders have bad in the pro duction of the lions, bat expresses his doubts whether any such perfect piece of casting, sneb tboronsh adaptation to each other of the various pieces which compose each Hoc, could have been performed elsewhere. There are five separate castings to each animal. .. 60,000 60,000 Fires* Lockpobt, N.
