He then pri>ceeded to make a practical us of the truth recorded in the t?-xt, from the following considerations: First It should deter <is from sin; from sin aa considered in opposition to <>cd No ain should be considered as a trifle, since it is in opposition to an Almighty God; arid since every sin, whether of thought or deed, is in opposition to God. therefore It incurs his displeasure, and should be constantly shunned The omnipotence of God is a great reason why we should Dot oSVnd Him, and creation is one of the greatest motives why we sho.ild serve him. In the second place, the truth recorded in the text should assure us that the duties assigned by God are all prart'cible, or such us can be performed hveu tnough seas of aifliction and persecution lie In our way. God will cause their waves to separate, and afford us a safe passage through them; enemies shall be made to flee before us. and mssiive walls of bindranre shall be made to tumble at our appearing.

Finally, the truth contained here should ratify our faith, so as to give it ali the force of :< motive to obedience. Dr E , after dwelling f ?r some time upon this point, spoke of the path of duty as being the only path of safety, ami exhorted his hearers, for this reason, to follow it always, although It may sometimes lead over ro>;gh pkc-s and up steep'and rugged oills, and though we may sometimes have to battle with fierce enemies. ever the less, if we take for our ir.ntto, "onward and upward,and do not turn otT to the pleasaut (looking) paths of sin and folly, wv shall come otf more than conquerors, and make sure our road to heaven. jokn s i.ul\'rnn Church.

Morr about the Meteor ?Mr Editor I witnessed an Friday night. at 9^ o'clock, a nimt remarkable electrical phenomenon. A brilliant meteor suddenly appeared at a small altitude above the horizon, moving slowly from West to Kast parallel with the surface of the earth, giving a brilliant and steady illumination not unlike that of a sky rocket After pursuing a direct course for about 30 seconds, the nucleus divided equally, one portion shooting In advance, the second following in its train, advancing thus for 15 seconds, when the rear portion split with an apparent explosion, radiating coruscations of a most vivid description, thus forming three separate and distinct bodi?s pursuing the same course at an equal dlstan.-e from each other. After remaining visible for perhaps one minute, thev passed In rotation from view behind a cloud. Will lonte of our Washington savans give us au explanation of the phenomenon? Spectator. Th>t Mkteor ?Editor Star: On Friday evening a gentleman was sitting on bis porch on Tenth street, near <J, when a bright light appeared, apparently behind'the Academy of Visitation. He thought It was a tire. In an fnstant that splendid mex<*or appeared, and gliding eastward was toon lost to his view by the Patent?>thce One of the clerks at the Post Office saw It, and he lost sight of It behind the buildings east of the Patent Office. A number of persons (the writer among thereat) were sitting on their porches on Fifth street, below E, when suddenly this meteor appeared. as though from F street, and gliding rapid y along was lost for a moment behind the Intirmary. and again appeared e*st of It. when it seemed to go under a cloud; but it was seen still farther enst by some persons on L> and near Second street, where it burst. To each of those who saw it it had the appearance of a double stir, as if linked together It was very low. as the Infirmary you know Is by no means a high building, and it hid it from our view. Did any one see it w?st of Tenth street? if so. will they not communicate it' None of those who saw it ever witnessed anything like it before. Osk Who Saw It. * <?ur >ortnern exchanges abound in account* of and correspondence concerning this meteor. It waa a?-?-n throughout the country as far north an New York at any rate, and the descriptions given of it accord very nearly with those given by our own correspondents Public School Examination?The examination of the male and female departments of the Third district School took place on Thursday and Friday, the 13th and 14th insts In the male department, the number on the roll is 13; present at examination, 40. The studies are selling, reading,writing from dictation with punctuation, mentafand written arithmetic, grammar, geography. and history. There were present on the part of the trustees, Mensrs Randolph, Ironsides. Fort, W'lllett, Walsh, Miller, and McKnew; also a number of teachers of the public schools, parents of the pupils, and friends of education. The examination was conducted by the visiting trustees, assisted by the Rev. Dr. Sampson, President of Columbia College, and gave entire satisfaction to the examiners and visiters At the close of the exercises. iUnri Millar ?ml I...... J uwu i ? ? 'iioilir O audressed the school in a manner appropriate to tt<e ' occasion, and encouraging to the pupils The examination of the female department of this *".hooi (Mis* Boggs. tearlier) was very interesting. In addition to the gentlemen present at the exami nation of the male department on the diy previous. we noticed an increase of two lady teachers, Mr. Hyde, of Georgetown, and a number of parents of the young ladies and friends of the school equal to two or three times the capacity of ttie room Such was the press of visiters that the trustee* were obliged to examine the clasv-s in their seats, and In many instance* to do them Injustice. In addition to the studies in the male detriment. Miss Boggs has a class in algebra, and one in physiology; these classes acquitted themselves in a manner highly laudable to tescher and pupil. The classes in reading, writing from dictation, with punctuation and spelling, were excellent. The examination as a whole was probably unsurpassed l>y any in the city. An I >plka*axt Ixcidixt.?Yesterday, two young ladies came from Virginia in a buggy to visit t-ieir friends in this cltv The buggy wa* an old-fashioned one, with the top extending far over the front, cutting oil' the view of what was passing, except In front While driving slowly by the corner of Second street and Massachusetts *1 ? ? avriiue, lury were suddenly surrounded by an e*cited crowd of persons. some crying '-take them out." and other* interfering In their behalf. The matter t?ein^j explained, it appeared that their wheel had pasted over a child which was f'laying in the street, and bruised its arm slighty In obedience to the suggestion of some of the less e*cl:>*d. they drove to the office of Justice Johnson, followed by a host of persons Justice Johnson heard the statements, and decided to dismiss the case, so far as the I nited States was concerned Captain Goddard was called, and he also decided that no case could be main- | ta'.ned by the Corporation The young ladies were very respectable, and the accident occurred from no indiscretion cf theirs One of the witnesses who testified in their favor, a female, was threatened when on her return Lome She happened to be a spirited woman, and her reply being ominous wr ill to her assailants, they returned to get a warrant, but did not succeed In having her arrested.

Editor of the Star: Your querist in this day's Star, about "the sun north of us and south of us," labors under the mistaken idea that an east and west line is a straight one. whilst, in fact, it forms cirei>. uei uuii imagine mmself at one of the earth's poles, and be will tlud to have no easting or westing at all; simply because those lines, (p.trallels) fortn circles around bis position, and ttitgun, If appearing, will be coursing around him without other change of elevation than that which is due to the change of the earth ill its orbit, in connection with its inclination of diurnal rotation axis If be departs from the pole, #<> will the sun, In it* twenty-foar-hour course, make a dip towards the position be has left, increasing with th** greater distance, until tbe sun set* actually beneath the horizon near the pole, to rise again presently; which phenomenon would prove, according to your correspondent s reasoning, that tbe suu was at tbe pole ! It is at the equator only that tbe *un appears to move lu a due line (straight) ea*t and west, all beyond are curves If vo?> inquirer will take a common terrestrial globe, and on that follow tbe east and west lines or parallels, he will soon be convinced of tbe truths above mentioned. Yours truly, W W. Capitol llill, July '21, 1800. Mr Editor : Several article*, very complimentary a/iparmtly. to the District volunteers have appeared in various paper* ; but to one who knows the character of our troops, those articles have something of a sarcastic appearance.
