He ran back for a bucket full of water, but when he returned the flames and smoke had so increased *s to render his uiiaided efforts to extinguish the lire fruitless Two Hue pianos were in the Hall, one of which was saved, but the othtr, worth about was entirely ruined, between the flame* aad the water.

Dr. Edwards preached from Malachl, 3 17?" And they shall be mine salth the f.ord of hosts in that day when I ahall make up my jewels H?? commenced by saying that there is perhaps no word in our language which c onveys the idea of worth and beauty more strikingly than the word jewel The precious stone whirh the word represents affords tbe greatest pleasure and delight on tbe crown or coffers of royalty; hence, when used figuratively, it conveys the highest idea of estimation Tnere are those in tbe world whom eAnri V. t ? " * v? i i? am uia jewels, ana wDO enjoy tils special favor, and who. at he inform* ni. (hall hereafter be taken care of It la, therefore, a question of great moment to all of us, "Who are God's jewels ? and what attributes constitute a chafactef upon which God set* such a value V' Intheeyea of men name and blood constitute a jewel Hut often what seems greatest In the ontr.tnn nf m*n It an abomination toUod.nnd it it thus In this ca?e; for the attribn et wbicb, in the eye of God, eorstitute such a character are within thr man, and relate to and affect the ttate of the heart. ; Then, to antwer ttiequestion, " What constitute? a jewel with Ood?" we can refer to the connection in which the text It used, and And that obedience to liod* piety, an effort for mutual education. and the like Chriitlan virtue*, all go to make up one lovely, amiable, and attractive character, which, from the brilliance, lustre and glofry with which it tparklet, hat the high eulogium of a jewel pronounced unoii it by God Then, again, the expresalon, " Wwa I come to make up my jewelt."' evidently conveys, at well at confirm!. the idea taught in all Scripture that there it a day coming in which God will draw a dividing line between the wicked and his jewelt Here the wicked and good are all confounded and mixed together; but in that day, when God thall drive the chatt'from the wheat. min? Mrh/im we consider jewels will be found among t be chatf. and many whom we consider chaff wlD be found among the wheat, for God does not see as we see. He then spoke of Job's being a jewel, and closed his Interesting discourse by the exhortation jfrti-e to become jtieels. Trinity Church ?In the morning, the Kev Dr Butler (rector) discoursed from Psalms. 13 5.8 41 My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and mjr mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips " ' When 1 remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches " All, he thought, recognized in the life of man two distinct types of true religious character. In both, there was religious principle and belief and religious feeling; bnt in the one religions princi pie is >!. 1? - uun uianru characteristic, and in the other religious feeling The language of the one was. "Though be slay me. vet will I trust him;" the other was the language of the text. Mauv Christiana had also observed how these two element* of a true religion had varied at different times in their own experier.c . Sometimes tbev had been conscious of holding fast to their religious principle and belief with an mi relaxing grasp, while they had painfully felt ths want of warm and religious aucttikina ai omer time*, while their religious 1 belief and principle had remained in all its strength, they had also had their h*?art? doubly warmed, interested and blessed in the truths of the Word, and 011 which they had acted from a ?e ise of duty. The latter they considered to be the higher style of a Christian life, as thty knew it to 1ms the happier. It was this for which they Wjuld strive; the want of it which they mourned Man should strive to contemplate the truths of God, and the representations of Jesus and Heaven, just as they are revealed In his llolv Word It was not the cultivated minds which stripped from spiritual truths the ac<: om pint men ts nf the Divine Word, isolated, abstracted them, and strove by Intense meditation to grasp and hold them, that must enjoyed communion with God. and the sweet meditations from Heaven No; It w.:s the souls of little children, and of simple ones life- ?wnJ? - - I vuiiumi, ncn in laiitt, and heirs of the kingdom, which could adopt the language of David, j <t? recorded in the text. Asylum?In the afternoon Rev. J. M or sell, D I D . preached front St. John, 13 8: "Jesus answered bint, if 1 wash thee not thou hast no part with me." The words of our Savior are truths He is Incapable of speaking else than truth. He lias taught us in His wora that unless we observe His commandments we can have no part with Him, and if we have no part with Hiut where must our lot be cast. Jesus is the great fountain, and we are implored to seek this fountain that we may be washed. He has power to cleanse us from our sins and give us clean hearts, that we may walk in the way of holiness, and at last, after we have served His righteous will on earth, He his power to take us to himself that we may enjoy the happiness of eternity. Then is it not our duty to seek this fountain and obtain lif* ?t?n?i Th.'^. were concluded by the Rev.

That objection I-beg to submit in the form of a query : Would it not be well to inquire of the men who blow the big horns, and the small hurm. and the intermediate sized horns, which, when all blow together, make such a delightful "concord of sweet sounds," how they would like to be compelled to devote a considerable part of what is to them, as well as every other working man, a day of rest, to tooting away on the aforesaid horns for the especial gratittcation of the hosts of "American!," "True Sabbat iriai.s,'* and "Laboring Men," who would. 110 doubt, attest the jHjpularity of the change by their attendance Now. it is not my purpose in submitting this objection to place a stumbling block In the mighty "march of progress,'" <>r the advancement of "equal rights," but simply with the desire to have it satisfai torl y answered; for F confess, Mr Editor, that I am ready to partiiij>ate in the "fun of the thing" which would follow the change, if I can be con vinceu mai "wnai is run for the b> y ' may not be death to thefrogs " Blower. Potomac Watkr ?A writer in a morning paper say*: "The heats of tbe last few days have produced the usual increase in the use of water, and many ?f our citizens who have at great expense iutroduced the water pipes into their baths and c hambers, after enjoying the luxury of an ample supply during the winter and spring, now ttud the water refusing to flow in the upi>er stories of their houses W itb what a dismal fueling the lord of tbe mansion, endeavoflng to get a mofning nap, tormented with heat ana Hies, hears the announcement from his better half that the water won't run.
