Protestants complain that Roman Catholicism la in creaatng in tho South. The law Is that the field belongs to those who work hardest In It It will never do to alt still, and then complain that some one else Is getting good wagea. Rev. Mr. Briar created a prickly sensation last week in ihe Assembly by tvaylng that the roota of the Catho lic Church aro too deep down to be dug up. Well, who ever has what the people want will sell his good*. All denominations aro subject to that wholesome tost Our Baptist friends aro subjected to a great many witty criticisms. A Baptist deacon was uslilng one day and caught a nondescript. "What's that * ho a?ked. "We call that fish the Baptist," was the reply. "And what la your reason for the name?" "Why, because he aplles tho moment bo 1a taken out of the water.

The New York <)tmrvrr says, Tory pithily and trnly, that "the excessive use ot the Jaw in religion is posi tively detrimental to growth lu grace."

Samson did great execution 1 with a Jawbone onre, hut thut is tlto only Instance on record in whieli that particular part hos beeu wielded ; to good purpose. A great many people feel about (he moral us ? down can philosopher (ell about the civil law. He said he thought the law itself was right, but be was entirely opposed to enforcing it. Time spent In dismissing the question whether an organ in a church is sanctioned by the New Teiitament Is wasted, but then there is no accounting lor religious 1 people's eccentricities. A very Important portion of i the Presbyterian body Is under tho impression that all instrumental mudc is heresy. Solomon got together a great orchottra when ho dedicated tbo Temple, hut Solomon, iu all liia glory, is no authority with these people. Do not aim to profess religion so much as to possess li. If you bavn't It your talking will do no good, lor you will tie quickly found out; and. If you have it, peo ple will discover it without your telling them all about IU The beht thing needs no recommendation. The deductions wo draw Irotn a giveu circumstance depend largely on our prejudices. A mau dieu the otbar day of .spontaneous combustion. Ho had been in the habit of imbibing three pints of brandy per day, sud one night, while sleeping loo rear the gets jet, his body caught fire and he was soon iu a blazo. A man of temperance looked on tho charred re mains and delivered a long discourse on the conse quences of drink. His logic seemed conclusive until ono of the friends ot the cremated, himself no stranger to tho glass, qulolly remarked that nothing could be more evident than that the brandy had nothing lo do with the death of his comrade, but thui tho introduc tion of gas into our houses was the origin of tho dif ficulty. lie was not much unlike tbo rost of us, who can sea what we want lo soe, but become couveniontly blind when it suits our puritoso. Kiuducrs, as a rule, works well, and there Is little danger of there l>eing too much of this commodity in tbo market Still, tbore Is a place for the rod ns well as the reward. Auron Hill says:?

Filial affection Is a delightful thing, and such illustrations or watchful caro of tho hoallb ol the aged Is very touching. Judge Hilton In getting a groat many letters Irom tho apirtt laud.

It is very Instructive to look over tbo result* of tbo various annivoraary conventions held in Huston and New York during tbo last two weeks.

We bare been amu-ed at the amount of work ! which has been laid out by ministers and philanthro pists for the coming year. According to their pro gramme the constitution Is to be ilxed up so that if a stranger from the New Jerusalem should chance this wsy aad aak for last document be would see at a glance tbnt we are a religious people, and that tbo name of Ood hus been Inserted In It, though that name may not bo respected elsewhere.

After that a procosslon of flery chariots and we are all going to glory. It never pars to throw (tones, because all onr : bouses bare more or lees glass In tbem. One of onr 1 prominent Protestant denominations parsed a resolu tion to the effect that "The Catholic Church is anti christ," and seemed to enjoy it with that peculiar sat isfaction which is the remit of a pleasant duty well done. We are only an outsldsr, to b? sure; but while there are so many divisions among Christina, would It not be well to exercise that obsolete virtue called 1 charity spoken of somewhero In the Now Testament? : Hard names never bring us nearer together, and It is 1 not easy to begin the work of salvation by knocking each other down. Here wordllngs snsilo when Chris tians quarrol, aud time spent in burling epithets at 1 each other is time wasted. Wo talk loudly about unity, but while we shako our flits at each other wo only prove our want of sincerity. There wu a conven tion called once, tbo object of which was to uni:y the I hriHiian world. The KpNcopalian arose and said It could ositily be done by adopting the I'rsyer Hook, the ' 1'rrabyteriau thought It could be accomplished by sub stituting the We/tiniuUer Catcclnein for the 1'rayer Hook, snd the Methodist felt that what was really needed was the abolition of both those peculiarities snd the adoption of Itinerant preaching. The conven tion broke up amid adjectives which are only found In "Webster'* Unabridged Dictionary." When we admit that oaeh sect has Its place and werk, that a I sects are needed and should be supported, we shall accomplish more for unity than by all the rilacufsiona that ever made hut temp.*ra.

The an swer of the pair.arch to tbla question waa tho text Irom which Dr. Gotthcil diaeoursed?"Tho days of tho yearn of my pilgrimage are 130 years; few and evil havo the davs o! the yoarj of my lifebeon, and have not attained unto tho days of tbo years uf the life of my fathera in the day* of their pilgrimage. ?' What a Had and disheartening account that is, .said Dr. Gotthml, from ono who had worked so lalthfully aud lived so abundantly, and who had been blessed hy God In such an extraordinary manner. He waa sometimes far too,solicitous for hla own welfare, and adopted devices that we cannot Justify. Ho sometimes Choae the cruokcd lnatoa<l of the straight path. A great deal of hta disappointment waa caused by hla own In judicious discrimination between hiH children. Uilt had he not deserved bolter of th% hand of a righteous God than that, at tho end of 130 yearn, he should be com pelled to aay that all hla daya were evil f tl we consult our own exjierleiice aud consider tho year* that we havo spent in devotion to those we love an in tho presence ol God, even such livos may be an id to naro been lew and evil.

The very highest perfection ol the Jewish religion la to sanctify the name ol God to yon In the darkest hour. Hut 11 is ucce-sary to look around and within us to see II this doctrine is supported by our own experience. This question is profound, aud our astute philosophers have not provided M a key by which wo may unlock the door ol mystery aud ascertain the truo design of suffering. Tho visitations ol God aotnetltucw(all thick an I last upon tho duarest affections of our hearts. And yet for the human heart nature makes no prov ision und tukca no thought of It Dr. Gotthoil referred to the beautica of nature and Its response to the sen tiuiout* and Irailtica ol the soul, and thou said that there Is no evldeuc.e in ail this that it Is done for our benefit. Nauiro expends herself In this way whether there be a human heart to enjoy it or not. fbe goes strught to her purpose and does not tnind if one, two or ten human hearts are crushed. She makes no ac couut of the humau heart; ao much so, Indeed, that the conclusion was forced upon thiuking minds tu tbo olden time that there were two deities governing thia world, and that Kometimos one was master and some time* the other. Hut wo who do not believe In moro than 0110 Supreme Cause, what shall we guv r As wo loam more ol nature's laws men aay suffering will tease; but I dou't think experience will hear thlsout.

Wherever there is any increase ol enjoyment there Ik an Increase of sullering also There are causes of misfortune known to-day that were unknown 100 years ago. The rotation ol nature to lac human licu'rt re mains the same. It is true that nature serves man, but she is obedient to his will only to a certain degree, sometimes be rules aud sometimes be Is crushed, la there uot truth in Jacob's statement that his life was a pilgrlmago and that Ilia home was somewhere else? Does it not point to the fact that this earth is not tho home of the lmtnan heart ? If it were we should not have been endowed with the attribute of love. A Gorman writer has beautifully said that tho idea of Immortality la but the home sickness and longings of the human heart. Here we find Uiom things tnat wo love moat uod boat are taken nwav from us; and do you think that this bulging to moet the loved ones ngaiu was given to As for nothing? It is the voico of our Heavenly Father callini; ua to himself. 1 know that because thia homeaickuess affects every human heart there mu?t be a common home lor all. Hero we may lie divided by creeds und nationalities and ao cial distinctions; but when all thia shall be done away, and when that which now torments ua and makes us doubt and waver is gone, wo shuli then tlnd that the human heart was not forsaken, but that a brother's hand had carried ua through those trials and dangers. Hut just aa Jacob did so shall we look at last to tho homo, not in Kgypt, but in the land ot promise, and wo shall Und ttiat God goes down with us oveu into the land of tho shadow ol death and brings us up to our own beloved home.

To-morrow afternoon tlio rorncr stone of ono of tho handsomest and most spacious ecclesiastical edifices of the country will be laid In this city. The somewhat primitive structure on Fifty-ninth street, which for a number of years has served iho Pnulist Fathers both us church uud monastery, is about to becomoonlyan appendage of a magnificent church covering the area of an ordinary city square. Tho Order of the Convocation of St. Paul tho Apos. tie Is a religious community almost entirely American In Its moinbershipi It wns founded not many years ago by a unlive ol thin city. Muuy of tho I'aullst Fathers have travelled on th? other side ot tho Atlantic uud havo had exceptional facilities afforded them to study tho architecture) beauties of the grand old mediieval cdlflcos of Kurope. and there Is reason to believe that tho knowledge thus acquired will be Judiciously applied by them In IIK.MTIKVIJH! TII KI It JtKW OUUOCR. Already the initiatory preparations have boon mado for the creot'on of tho edifice, nod for weeks back crowds have stood Razing at the immense area hoi .owed out on Ninth avenue for the laying of the founda tions, and muuy have boon ut a loss to divine the usoi to which a structure o! such magnitude was likely t? bo devoted. Tho stto selected covers a high pieci of ground Just ut tho terminus of tho Klcvatod Kallroad. It is one block west of Central l'ark and occupies tho rpace bounded by Fifty-ninth and .Sixtieth streets, fronting on Ninth uvonuo, the ground being 200 feel front and rear by 400 feet deep. The rock which formerly roso In this place has been blasted and quarried to iho reqtnrod depth for the crypt aud basement, which will occupy iho ontire aroa. All tho Walls and piers will, tbercloro, havo their loun dations resting on tho solid rock, a matter oi the tirst importance iu a building of such magnitude. Tlio wails will bo built ol the hard blue stone quarried on the promises, faced externally with red Connecticut granite. Tno b.iacmoul will be seventeen feet six inches high uud will accommodate about 2 ooi worshippers.
