Rnuaiora.?The churche* yesterday, notwithstanding the threatening appearance of the weather. were well attended. The regular paatora of the Metbodlst Kplscopal and Methodist Protestant Churches being absent at their reapectlve Conference* now in their annual aewion, their imlpita were filled by minister* of sister churches and by the local clergy. Wavgk Chnpel ?Re* Father Taylor,of Boston, preached from Luke 13 23 Men were prone to avoid the truth when the question was Drought home to their conscience*, " Will you accept salvation'"' bv equivocation and akeptlclsm They would endeavor to pick flaws in the Word of God, and by lngenloua question* aeek to divert the application from tbemaelve*. Although God bad said man should be saved, yet he had provided no way whereby bis salvation could be secured without the co-operation of man himself He was a free moral agent, with life and death set before him. If he complied with the terms of salvation, be recored the former; if be neglrcted thrm, he mint inevitably meet the latter. The way of salvation waa plain and simple. Let blm forsake bis evil way*, and turn unto the Lord with sincere repentance, and he would be taken into the fold of God No man need have any doubt us to hia position before fJod He cannot aerveGod and the Devil If he is striving to walk In the way of the Lord, be will feel In hia own heart the change that haa been wrought in his de Ires and inclinations, and will not be in doubt with regard to his acceptance before God. If roan in an unrighteous condition felt himself guilty and liable ?o punishment,wby should not he who had compiled with the command of his Heavenly Faiher have a corresponding feeling of safety and repose' He who did his work well, never feared to meet his master. Grac Ckurrk ?The Rector, Rev. Mr. Holmead, delivered an excellent discourse appropriate to th?? time*, from 2d Thessalonians, 3:16. The text, * Now the Lord of peace himself give yoM peace always by all means.*' Indicated the paramount importance attached by the Apostle to the attainment of peace. The preacher proceeded in the same connection to treat upon the desirableness of peace in the state and In the church, ' always bv all means," and upon almost any terms The absence of true Christianity was tne cause why peace was not with us at aH times; and any settlement of existing difficulties not founded upon christian love and kindness would be of no value or permanence. Weslty Chapel.?The service was conducted by Rev. Mr. Hill, who preached in the morning from the text of Job, 9 30 to 31 The preacher dwelt with considerable force upon the itnpuriof human nature, and the insufficiency of man's efforts for his own purification.

St Patrick's Dat.?Yesterday, the anniversary of the birth of St Patrick, Ireland's patron 5-*int, passed off quietly and pleasintly In our city. At an early hour our streets were thronged wi'h worshippers, repairing to the various Catholic churches to engage in the religious exercises of the day, while an unusually large number of visitors were attracted by the Interesting ceremonies The churches were, of course, densely peeked, and numbers were obliged to go away without an opportunity of witnessing tbe exerrlses. St Patrick's church was crowded to its utmost v>^ |*J, mail) uruij; 10 BWna aooux the door* and passives Father Maguire preached from Ecclesiaat?* 41 1, IS It la natural for man to reverent e the name of thoae who have in the p*at be*-n hf nefactor* of our race, but at the sarr>? time man ? ?? too prone to pay homage to those who had *e<-ured the?* benefits by mean* of war and bloodshed St Patrick had wrought out for Ireland niort han any other man or claaa of men fila privatioi.t, Lib aelf-denial. and hla virtues were equalled by bo man, and from his life rould >>? learned leoaona -leekness, of patience, and holine*s H!a<-a; >r?. and bondage when young, was only one ofth yat?rio?a wavaof providence, which, though grevit.ua In affliction, yet it worked out. for hi m and for i reland a great and eternal weight of glory He bad left to Ireland a bright and glorious taith, and while many of her nona nnd aaughtera were poor in the thing* of the world, yet they could leave thelrchildrena legacy which would make them rich for time and eternity. If they left them houaea and landa and gold a'.oae, then they were poor indeed; but if they were trained up in the holy Catholic faith, they would have an Inheritance more valuable than all the world No man could excuse himself from training hiachi'dren in tbe faith of the Catholic church, and if he filled to do so, he would be called to answer before God and St Patrick. 9bcb?sio;c or a Wabd ik Gioioitowi.?Th* following printed band-bill wai extensively circulated in Georgetown on Saturday evening.
