Another trustee, after tbe gas bad been lighted, turned it off at tbe meter, causing tbe congregation to disperse; and having secured the key, he walked off. In ibe evening tbe chapel gates were broken open, and a reward has since been offered for tbe discovery of tbe autbor of tbe outrage. On Wednesday one of tbegentlemea above referred to, witb tbe help of four men, carried away from the place a number of benches and two tables, thus causing much mcon venien-e to the meeting which was beld that evening. Similar disturbances took place some fourteea years ago, wbicb resulted in tbe tbeu minister of tbe place committing self-destruction. How To PnorOH*. ? A party of ladies and gentlemen were laarhing over tbe supposed awkwardness attending a declaration of love, when a gentleman remarked that if ever be offered himself be would do it in a collected and business-like manner.

Of all tbe l.vlies of my acquaintance I admire jou tbe most; indeed, 1 love yon. and would gladly make yon my wife." You flatter me by your preference." jrood-bumoredly replied Miss Smitb, to tbe surprise of ail present; "1 refer you to my father." -Bravof" exclaimed tbe gentlemen.

Four others of the same brood were also, at tbe same time, confined in another pen and fed on tbe same articles, bat with one pint of very tine pulverized charcoal mixed with 'heir food?mixed meal and boiled Cotatoes. They bad also a plentifnl supply of roien charcoal in their pen.

A gentuman in the lower part ot this city has a splendid milch cow. She ordinarily gives from two to three gallons at a milking. It is a remarkable fact that, for the last two months, she has given more milk in cold weather than in warm. Wnen the weather is cold, her 1 milk is abundant, but when it moderates her I supply is reduced down, frequently to less ' than a quart. This remarkable freak attracted 1 the notice of the owner, several weeks ago, and ever since be has been sednlonsly trying to divine the cause. At first he thought she was milked by other parties than members of his family, but as the cow was confined in a : lot adjoining his residence and closely watched, be became satisfied that no person otner than some one of bis family milked her. During the recent extreme cold weather ber milk wag abundant, bat yesterday (the weathear bavmg become very mncb moderated) she failed entirely. Tbic morning he was op early, determined, if po??ible, to learn the cause of tbelailure. He had hardly entered the cowyard before bis attention was attracted to a rustling noise in some chunks near tbe stable. Presently he saw a huge snake emerge from nnderneath tbe stable and crawl np to his favorite milker and deliberately begin stripping ber teats. The ?nake was at least live feet l*iig, and as large as a man's arm at the shoulder. It was what is known as a cow snake. The mystery was now explained. In cold weather tbe snake lies dormant, hybernatiug, but when the weather gets warm be emerges from bis winter quarters. Tbe gentleman attempted to kill ibn snake, but failed. It ran baik under tbe stable, where it now seourely lies gorged with i's favorite beverage.
