About how Burh time elapsed between your conversation at the house about tbe organ and your receipt of the 9400 citpcfc V A. I think it was received tbe next day. <). Who banded it to you, at what place, and what name was subscribed to the check ? A. 1 have no recollection Who handed M; it wax delivered at my rectory, in Broad way; Mrs. Parish u name, to the best of my recollection, was subscribed to the check. (J- Did Mr. Parish, at the Ume you saw him aiUir his attack, alwajs woar spec tacle* ? A. To the best of my recollection, be always did, having one pair to read with, and another to see at a dis tance . he changed bis gki-ses upon reading. Q. la y>ur interviews wr? him, had he not his glasses always on ( A. 1 should pay yes, sir. decidedly; always on, to tbe best of my rerollection. Q. Have you any knowledge or rocdlectlon as to whether ho wore glasses of great con vexity or noty A. I have no knowledge upon that sub ject; 1 never opened or examined his glasses. y. You say that he used one pair of glasses to read; did you ever see him ready A. I have teen him read repeatedly; and I say that be used one pair to read and another to see at a distance, because I remember distinctly on one occasion see him adjust his glasses in order to read something Uia was brought to his notice. V. In what way, and by what act, did he adjust his glasses? A. If I rem?-tnber rightly, with his left hand; he was bringing a glass down which be wore upon his ior?head, while Uie other was upon his nose ; I then inquired whether it was necessary for him to use different glasses when read ing from those which he used to aa-:ist his tight oidinarily; be replied that it was, by nodding his head in his usual way ef answering affirmatively. Q Who was pr?*M't>t on this occasion y A. Mrs. Parish vim present, and no one el-e that 1 now remember. Q. Who was it brought this reading milter to his notice, and how was that dotie? A. Upon that iioint I have no dis tinct recollectkai. Q. What books, paper ?>r |Mtp*rs did you ever see Mr. Parish read Y A. 1 have soen bim fading his prayer book during the adinini.-tratiou ol the sacrament repeatedly ; I have seen him reading a news paper, but what paper I am unable to say; that is all. Q. Did he always read the prayer book du?ing the admi nistration of the sacrament? A. In tbe latter part of his illness I should say be discontinued the use of the prayer book: betore that, be did read it always. Q. Who fur nished him aprayer book on these occasions ' A. Mrs. Parish. Q. Was ne instructed or directed by auyiody at what place to read / A. He was; places were found for him, and as root) as they were |>ointed out, he would nod his bead, to show that he understood; I would on such occasions wait until I saw that Mr. Parish was pre pared to go on with the service; Mrs. Parish, standing or fitting by bis si ie, would point out the places and turn the leaves; in the earlier stages of his illness ho always insisted upon standing and knelt where it was praper that he should kneel; in the latter years of his illn 'ss ho would sit during the service; when he sat. tho book was usually upon a rhair, or the arm of the chair, or a table beibre him; when he stood, he hold the book in his lett hand, Mrs Parish l oading with him, as sny two j>ersons might read together. (J. About how leng before his death did he cease to use or read in the prayer booky A. 1 should s|M>ak hesitatingly as to the time, but ubout eighteen months or two years. Q. Llid he always stand at communion trom and Including tho tirst service during the earlier stages of his illness' A. 1 should sty that he did; there may have been an occa sional exception; I remember none such. Q. Down to how late a period of his life did this practice of standing continue? A. The precise tiino I cannot tlx, but it was until he grew heavy and weaker thau be bud been and found it ini-onvciiient to stand I should say it was eighteen months or two years before bis death ; I will add to that, I desired ho should take tbe position mo<t convenient to himself; I expressed that desire. Q. At tho services did or did not Mrs. Parish kneel at the proper places? A. She always did as far as 1 know tud believe. Q. Do you ren-ember any instances in which Mr. Parish omitted to kDfel at the tame time? A. I remember man/ In.-. lances in which Mr. Parish, in the latter years of his life, did not kneel, but not in the earlier years. Q. You observed that be insisted ujon standing; did you in the earlier peri ids of his illness endeavor in any way to pre vent bis so standing? A. I cid, by expressing to him my wish that he should not stand or kneel if it fatigued him to do so; there was no other or further agency than that. Q. In what way did Mr. Parish kneel during tboie ser- J vices? please de*cribe the operation. A. I have no re collection of any peculiarity in bis manuer of kneeling, nor am I able to describe any such manner, (j. Di 1 be kneel with only one knee or )>olbv A. I should say they were both bent, but as I only passed before him in admi Bi'tering the elements, tt made no impression upon me ; it did not slnke me as peculiar. Q. When you say kneel, do you mean to say that M knee or knees were placed upon the lloor? A. That is my m -lining. Q. Wli*t is now your best recollection as to whether Tie placed both knots upon the ttoor or only one? A. If IhndnH been asked the question I should have said that both knees were bent , it is altogether pos sible that one only was bent. Q. Have you any pre lent rrcolU rtlon of tbe fact as to whether one knee only, or both knees, were placed ti|*>n the tlnor? /. 1 will not be positive upon that point, for I attached no im|>ortniice to the |Kisltion. (J Did he bend his knee or knees, or rest It or them, upon the floor himself, or was he aided in getting down to that posture by some other person' A. I am unable to answer that question positively; my own duties would necessarily direct uiy attention iroui the parties engaged with me in the ceremony. Q. Did you observe the fart sufficiently st any ot the-e serines to rntble you to state from recollection whether Mr. Parish pot down upon his knoea himself, or wits placed in that pasture by the aid ol Homo other p. thou A. 1 am unable to nay. y. When did you Cr?t observe Mr. Pariah reading a newi<|?perv A. It is lni|*?s?iblo for n>e to tlx a time. I ahotild nay within the tirst year of his lllne-s. y. To how late a period In hi* life did you ob serve blm reading the paper? A. I think tliat 1 have al ready t-ald to about eighteen month* of two year-* praced tog his decease.

A I remember no such occasion Q. <*> the orcaHiocs when you nw him reading the pai>er did you fcnd It In hia hnnd when you come In. or did he tako It up after you came In? A. A* I remember I hare both ?< en it with lam In his band afUr I raine in. and bare teen hint take it up after I hare entered. Q. How often, according to your best recollection, have you seen him havo the pajier In hi* hand reading? A. Two or three tini<>*. Q. Jlow long at any one time have you seen him have the |?|>er In lit* hand. ?p|*n nt ly reading it ' A.

When ha ttakl no, and his voice went on repeating, did bo continue the tame found, or did it vary, and If so, bow ? A. It would vary n quicknean of utterance, jjjU also in slowness of sound : he did not repeat no as a general thing, but changed it iuto a softer sound of uay. Q. ('an you now say tbut you ever board Mr. Parish, after his attack, say "no,'' or "say," giro sly once, and not run on or continue repetitions of sounds? A. 1 cannot 'ay po sitively that I ever did. Q. Do 1 understand you to say, that when giving a negative by ne, or some of it* repeti tion*, and shaking his head from side, to side be sometimes altered that gesture, towards the last, and nodded bis bead np and down in t/ie form which you took for an affirmative ges ture/ A. Be did so, and gave greater emphasis to the no. Q. Were any persons called in to act an nponiors at the baptism? A. Mm. Parish acted as sponsor; I ba'l so other sponsor ; It was a case of sickness. Q. Is it not * usual ceremony, whether sickness exists or not, to have two sponsors, ooe of each an, when that can bo convo nietitly done? A. In ordinary ea-sen it la so; in eases o sickness, or under peculiar circumstances o' any sort that requirement is often dispensed with. Q. Is it not a rule or practice of your church not to adtninster tbi Lord's Supper until the subject lias received the ordi nance or rite of confirmation by the bands of a bishop? A. Such la the linage and requirement Of the church in the case of children; with persous of mature age and under peculiar circumstances, confirmation is widely dispen-ed with. Q. la it not a ruin and usage of ttie charcb, not withstanding that baptism may have been administered alter mature age, to require OOBtnMttm htflNMj administering the Lord's supper, unless there Is some special reason lor dispensing with it? A. With perrons in health and in ordinary circuta-uance< such is the rule and usage, hut, like other good rules, It admits of exceptions, y. Is not the presence of a bishop indispensable to confirmation? A. it is. Q. Considering that on the aoth of March. lf>GO, Mr. Parish was in ap (?arently good general health, tnat his countenance hod reoovered Its usual expression, and having reference to Ma place of raaMooce and tbo proximity of tho bishop's abode, was there any difficulty or serious imped. mont to his confirmation? A. It is enough lor the purposes of this issue that I did not deem it necessary or best to call in any bishop upou that occasion. Q.

The following in the statement of W. II. Wetmore, first mate of the Northern Indiana, who was in command of the vessel at Hie time of the aoeident:? We left Huflblo Wednesday evening, July 16, at seven o'clock, with a medium load. The ore* numbered be tween fifty and sixty. Thorsday morning, about t-u minutes past 11 o'clock, when about half way between Point au Pelee reef and Point au Peleo lighthouse, while 1 was on the pilothouse, the engineer sect a man to me and said be wanted me below. I supposed there was some disturbance with the men and ran immediately b? low, and wbeu I reached there the first engineer, Mr. Farrer, wan getung lh* hoed ready, and at.achiug it to the fire engine. Mr. F. said, "My God, Mr. Wetmore, she's aire." Tbere is a round bole usually covered with a plate of iron, which wah oil, between the engine room and the smoke pipe, on tho star board side. I sa w a light underneath the main deck. I turned about and ran to call the men, passing some on the deck, whom I told to run to the engineer. I proceed ed to the forecastle, where two or throe of the men were sleeping, and told them to rouse. I immediate ly ran back to tho engineer, and i?und he ha 1 got to work with the tire engine, and also saw the flames bursting through the hatches. I caw she was badly on fire, aud ran to call the second mate, for the purpose of altering her course. As 1 got on tbe p omo nade deck I met him, and he said. "My <>od, Mr. Wet more, what's the mater?" I told him, "she's burning up." Iran into tho pilot bouse, and helped him to alter the course ol the vessel for the nearest point of f'oiut au Pelee Island, supposing she would make tbe inland before her engine would stop. 1 then returned to the main de< k tothe engineer, when I found the r'.ain-s had driven ott those working the tire engine and the tlainej madly rain ing on. 1 again went to the prom nade deck, ana fjund the fire bursting through tbe upper deck around the on g ne; tbence 1 ran to my room. wb. h was alongside tne wheelbousc, to get my axes, and bad hard work to get back through the flam-s, which burned my hands considera bly. As I came forward 1 met the second mate and one of the wheelsmen, who said they had the boat* out on the cranes. I wen; immediately on to tlie promenade deck with my axos. and when 1 got there 1 saw tbe forward boat was crowded with men. I fell sure they would all be lost, unless 1 could gel them out ef it. I took an axe l fe my Mod and lan forward, and '.old t!" m tbvy wo'iid ail be lost umess they got out. Mr. Farrer, the engineer, and the second engineer were trying to pull them out of the boat, and >c"eeded in get ting home out by tho greatest possible exertion. Altint moment tho cranes gave way, by the weight of those . u the boat, and she went down end forward and spilled most of taem into the water. Tho boat would hoij eigh teen or twenty, and was crowded to excess. When she went down 1 knew what would result and did not "top to look at her, but turned round ajd met the men wh>ra I had sent aft. Tbey said they could not get aft, as the Hames would not permit them. 1 then turned to the pas sengers, aud begged them to keep cool and I would uivo them all, at the name time knowing tbere were about two cords of plank about half way alt on tne larbo ird side. 1 ran where the plank was, and also called to the orew and such of the pa?sengem as were near, and urged them to get the planks out. I brought out an armful and then went back Ui the opposite side and brought anotlior load. 1 I constantly urged tbe passengers to obey my orders, and 1 would Insure safety. I got them at woik getting out plank and wood work, such as doors aud panelhuga. Tho engineers and second mate were assisting me all the time. The jianel work was all cut away, and as last as got out was passed to tho pirsengers. We then rushed ;nto the cabin and hauled out tbe d n ing tables and drew them forward. We then spread tbem out in lull length, and dropped tbem overboard to the passengers who were floating in the water, We threw tbem over bottom side up, and likewise threw over side tables, sofas, arm chairs, etc., wh;< b were in Uie cabin, By this time the boat had stopped. 1 cannot tell exactly when she did Flop, but am confident she could not have run over a mi e from the t:mo when the tiro broke out. Alter getting all out or the cal m, we commenced ? lilting away the feeders, aud urging men to get upon them. We cut away everything that could aliord any a* siataace. 1 then went forward on tbe promenade deck. The engineer and second mate and wbeelamen weut be low on the forecastle deck, and commenced passing every thing out of the forecastle deck. Aboot thU time our ?t the ptft*? ngera called my attention to one ol the broken crane staueliions, and we tried to get it out bat did not succeed, i t. nail y managed to cut it off with an axe. A wiiniiu shortly after came tome aud said, "lam alone with four little chihien." SI" had one at the timo in her arms. I took it and posted it up to the passenger above spoken of. who wa- on deck. Tbo woman then pa-sed me the other three children. Soon after, another woman pas-ed me a babe abojt six months o'.d. Just previous to this time, the Mississippi, which was about five or kix miles astern when the fire broke out, bail picked up most of them in tho water. By this time her small boatti aud those prof iler Republic rame alongside to pick oil from the Northern Indiana. The boats were full ol lift pro servers. The jsrsona in the boats kept throwiag the buoys overboard, and called to tne pasvnger* to Jump over. The women seemed afraid to do tbia A passen ger about this time said to me, "Take this child and 1 will go and put them (the pa?-cugrrs who would not Jump) overboard." 1 look the > bild, and bad another un der my arm and three more cluiging to me. The passon ger (wh<*< name I did not learn) worked hero ally, aud succeeded In getting three women and (owe men into the water, and then 1 lowered.tho children away to them by braving line*. My friend, the pa?t ngcr. waa the !v<t man, with the exception of myself, who l?ft the vessel. Previous to leuvmg her 1 walked aft from lifter n to twenty feet and stood there without experiencing auy in convenience front the Uamen. 1 then !cworod myself on the forecastle over the sale to see if there was any one. 1 found no one, and lowered myaclf into one of the Niseis aippt'a boaUi which just caine out. We pulle<l the boat round to the stern of the steamer and took oif two men who were banging to the rudder. We then pulled round to the leeward and saw some in the wheel. I called out W> them to * art* out fro? the boat if they < ould They not doin^ it, we pulled tinder the leo ot the wheel hoi?o atid then underneath, and tound two ladies and a gentleman ; got them on board and told the men to bark away, as there was danger of the wheel house dropping on to us. We then pulled (or the Musiss ppi, and on arriving there, asked Qapt. lAngley for a boat to assist in saviug thewretk. We took a lifeboat and rowed tithe pro peller Republic, and asked htm to take hold ol the wreck, to which he promptly a 'ceded. She waa then towed Into Pigeon Bay, where she lies grounded v'OO leet from thr shore. | should think I coul I have rttuained half an hour alter we abandoned her without any Inconvenience. When the flames were discovered, the mo t intense ex citementand pam< prevailed among the [Kuwengers, and It was imp< "Iblr to rnaintalu any kind of order, an I no atWntion waa paid to my repeated api>eala lo ol?ey my orders, or they would all havr been saved. It Is my posi tive opinion that not n single person won I<1 have been luat. bad they ol served presence of mind.

We must also describe some remarkable both for tbe:r richness and elegance A dress of sea green, with three flounce* of a deejier (bade, and watered, each orna mented with three rows of very narrow black velvet.

[From the I<oud<ui Economist ] The important subject to which we adverted last week ? the postal aud |?isscnger service between this country and tho Australian colonies ? has becu brought to a prac tical conclusion by the acceptance of a tender made by a powerful and respectable company in 1 .lasgo* for the establishment of a line of large steamer? from Southamp ton to Alexandria, and from fuez, by way of Point de tialle and round Cape I^win, to Melbourne and Sydney, performing the passage monthly each way. In connec tion with thin scrvico, of course a mail through Krauce, \ia Marseilles, will bo made up The time -tipulated for is, from Southampton to Alexandria, twelve days and twelve hoars, anil to Su?7. fourteen days: tho time from Suez to Melbourne, outward, thirty nine days, and from Melbourne to Suez, homeward, thirty live days; so that, adding seven days tor the journey through France, we shall have a postal and passenger service from London to Melbourne in forty six days, and from Melbourne to London in forty two days. Allowing foar days (including stoppage at Melbourne) each way more for Sydney, the time occupied will be tifty days outward and forty six days homeward. The tlrst boat to be employed in this service will sail from Southampton with ;>a?sen*ers and a mall iu October, and will arrive at Melbourne in time to commence the regular service tu> Suez in January ; the second boat will leave Southampton iu November, the third in December, and tho fourth in January all arriv ing in ti&e to continue the service trom Sydney and Mel bourne, monthly, in regular succession, after January. The flrs-t mail will leave this country direct in the mouth of February, to arrive at Suez 111 time to be carried on by the January boat arriving from Melbourne, ami in time also to bring back the Australian malls brought by that boat. It is to be hoped that an arraugctr. ut will he made by which this new overland service will leave this country at dates intermediate with th<> present India mails, so that at least as far as Point de Oalle we -hall have the advantage of an addition*! mail every month to tho?o which wo now have; and wo truct that it may bo luund practicable to put on branch steamers Irom Point de italic to Calcutta in connection with this line, so tlut tho addiloual monthly mail may bo m.ulo avail able for India. The sum to be paid for this servico to the company undertaking it I- no lees than ?1SS,( 00 a year? one half of which will be contributed by Uie colonics. This seem- a very large ?ub sidy aud can only be justified, first, by the great urg -ucy of the service ; and next, that the company which hall been fortunate enough to obtain the contract were not only prepared to commence it aooner th?u any other of the candidates, but that they undertook to perform it q.ilcker by acvtrnl days, and that they gave the best as surance lor the due performance of the service by unro servtdly adopting the penalties which are made 10 apply to any failure in |>oint of time. Hitherto penalties have been little better than a force, because they have rarely been euforced . and where any discretion or doubt is left In such cases it is plain that they will aeldom be acted upon.

The various prohibition* of this free tradoaosiMd to have availed very little; but just ol late, as irom Simphero|>ol state, there have been Custom hoimea established at Perekop, Geuitche, and on the WlWfM bridge; the poete stationed along the hue ol demarcation have also been very much strengthened, and A4jutaat General Count Hrogoooff, the Governor of fimpherepol, bas issued the strictest orders that all goodafthattero met with, not having passed Uie Custom house, an to be s>.;/"'d an contraband. The treatment of foreigners entering Poland from lha German Hide is described act ha v 'tig become m>>eh leta irksome and vexatious than It formerly was. Tbia im provement is ascribed to a recent issue of fresh regula tions by Prince Gortscliakotl The tenor of Uwas new in* structions is, that in future any unnecessary annoyance to travellers shall be punished equally with the excessive indulgence that proceeds from carelessness and laziness;" moreover, wherever anything like bribery n detected, not only shall the official who has been guilty of acoept :ng the bribe be put on lit- trial, but also those above hi to and tb or e beneath bim in office shall be liable to exami nation as to whether they were privy or accessory to it, or derived any protit from tt. As far as these instruc tions go they would seem to promt* e much for a gradual improvement In the conduct ot the Custom House officers on the frontier: but it must nit be forgotten that Similar instructions were also i-^ued in the reign of the late Kmperor; the officials were for a time aghast at Uie provpcct of ruin put before them (for they notoriously cannot live upon their sa'aries). but, after due cogita tion and consultation, they hit u|>ou an expedient wich perfectly defeated the wbole intention of tho new inwuc tions. They sent a deputation to St. Petersburg to pre sent a pe ltlon to the Kmperor, in which they unreser vedly recognized tho justice of the instructions lately issued, but pouted out, ut the same time, that no bribe* could be received if none were given, and that in fket it whs i he briber on whom the greatest amount of culpa bility rested, and who most merited punishment. The Kmperor innocently enough fell into the trap, and or dered that in future all person.* giving or offering bribes should be amerablc to punishment. The rosult in practice was that the system of bribery was continued as much as ever, with this (Special difference, that all paries were equally interested In not betraying each other. The Projected Suez Ship Canal. The r.uropean Commission ot Kngiaeers, assembled .d Paris to discuss the details of the plan for culling a caml across the Isthmus of Suez, have brought their labors to a close. The following is u summary statement of Ute resolutions agreed upon at the various sitting-- ? L Tbe commission have rejected the system of indirect traits across Kgypt, and have adopted the principle of a dlrtc. cutting from Suez to the Mediterranean They bave rejected the system of supplying the maritime canal trom tbe lresh water ot the Nile, and have adopted tha", which supplies it Willi sea water. 3. They have discussed tbe advantages and inconveniences of a canal, with cooltnu oub embankments, from one sea to the other; and at tbo close of this discus.- ion it was decided that the otaal should not be embanked in Its passage across the Bitter Lakes. 4. The ettect of tlie interposition of the Ititter Lakes, thus wi open to tta waters of Dm oaaaL Mag to neutrali-o the tnlal currents, the commission bave con sidered that tbe lucks proposed at each end of tbe canal, at Suez and Pclutium. would not be Indispensable. They bave left it open, however, to esubiisb these locks at a future period should they be Judged necessary. f>. It bas confirmed the breadth of 100 metro* (328 ft.) at tho water line, and (Hi metres (.97 ft.) at tbe bottom, throughout the mam course of ihc canal, for tbe porti.r, SO kilometres (12)? miles) in length, between v' iez and tbe Bitter lakes, which is to be lined with stone, the breadth i.s reductd to SO BKtTSS at flw water lines ( . ft.), and 48 metres (156 feet) at the bottom, ti. The sec tion of tbe precursory scheme drawn up by the Viceroy 's ? rgmcers is in ether respects maintained. T. -Is regards the entrance into the Mediterranean, to be colled Port Said, the commission adopt the plan of jetties proposed by those ol Mai members who proceeded to Kgypt, with the exception that the breadth of the channel will be 400 metre", or 1,312 feet, in toad of 500 metre-1, (1.040 ft.) and an inner ba- iu will be added. As regards tbe port oi' Sue/, on the Fed Sea, the commission adopt the fituaiiou and direction given to the channel. Tbe breadth will be "00 metres, (W4 tost.) instead of 4i?. and an inner basin will be added. The jettw* will terminate at a depth of six metres (19 ft. 8 in.), low wa U r. and a broad channel ui the direction of tie jetties w.ll be dredged to a depth of nine metres (MU tt. 0 in.) 9 The commission declare that beacon ligaU of the first order will have to be estaMiahed to point out "hoals on tbe Kgyplian{coaut and on the store- of tie- Red Sea, as a necessary consequence of opening Uie canal 10 A port for taking in stores and will bo created .n Lake Menzaloh. 11. As regards tbe auxiliary canals supplied with fresh water from tne Nile, while the commiasloD prefer, in a technical point of view, the plan of a canal from Zagaxig, near Bllbtes, they leave tbe choice of the best mode of executing it to the* judgment of the engi neers to wborn tho works will be entrusted 12. lastly, from the detailed information given by the naval officers, members of the commission, it Is established that tbe na Tigs: ion of tbe lied Sea Is as favorable as that of the M? dlterasnean and Uie Adriatic.
