Religious. Yesterday was another very tin-
Sleasant day for church-goers, and somewhat
iminishedtne attendance at the various places
of public worship. But'some of the churches,
where the services were of special Interest,
wero very largely attended, and there was a
reasonable attendance at all the rest.
Fourth rrubyttrian Church. This church,
the main ball of which has been closed for im
provement and enlargement, was reopened yes
terday morning. A very largo congregation
was in attendance.
After an appropriate hymn by the choir, the
pastor, Hev. J. C. Smith, offered a very fervent
Rev. John Chambers, of Philadelphia, then
delivered a very impressive discourse from
the 2d chapter of Ilaggai, 1st to 9th verses, in
clusive, lie observed, in opening, that this
congregation was. not hero.for the purpose of
self gratification. Their object was identified
with time and eternity. Whatever is intended
to advance the great object of Christ, viz: the
salvation of mankind, would find favor in his
eyes. He spoke of the word of Haggai, " the
aecond temple shall exceed in glory tho first."
The first was full of grandeur and magnificence,
but the second possessed Christ, who gave
the glory to the temple. The temple they
were m was good enough now for any one, bat
he cautioned the congregation, that without the
spirit, it would do no good. God is a spirit, and
is not confined to churches. No spot is pecu
liarly adapted to the worship of God. Be could
be worshipped as well in the wigwam of the
Iudian as in this temple.
He then spoke of the Union, and reminded
his hearers that God had guided the Israelites
through the Red Sea, and water was sent from
the rock to assuage their thirst. He prayed for
the salvation of his country, as the ship of State
was upon the lee-shore.
He then defined tho word " glory " to be
" manifested excellence ; " in the ingathering of
souls, the glory of this house would be greater
than the former.
As the gates of this temple are lifted up, as
Christ comes in the hearts of the people, in
the same proportion will the glory of this house
excel that oi the former. He then urged his
congregation to see that the temple would be
filled in every part, so that souls would find
their way to glory. Sinners are not converted
to wrap themselves in cloaks of indifference.
They had n work to do ; living by themselves
was not all that was required of them.
As Christ was the glory of the secc-nd tem
ple, wo should make him the glory of our
JGod had promised peace in his temple; lie
will (jive peace to the sinner, on condition " that
Iia nttll nt turn arrain tr riiJ fi-illir '
The speaker then urged the people to be
workers. They had been workers, for they had
a working pastor. He had always found that
n working pastor had a working congregation.
If all Christians would work, it would not be
long before Christ would reign. If the Gospel
prevailed as it should, the present crisis and
trouble would not now lie upon the country.
He closed by urging the faithful to work, and
sinners to accept the invitations of the Gospel.
During the services, tho pastor made a state
ment, congratulating Uie congregation on bay
ing in their beautiful edifice, ana thanked the
workmen who had beon engaged on the work
for their faithful performance.
Rev. Messrs. McLain and R. R. Gurley also
took part in the services of the morning.
Rev. Dr. Samson, President of Columbian
College, occupied the pulpit in the afternoon )
and at night, Rev. Dr. Chambers again preached,
taking tor nis subject " the one-man power."
Thirteenth Street Baptist Church. In the
morning, Rev. Dr. Samson preached from the
7th chapter of Hebtews, second verse. The
eternal peace of God, he remarked, being
chiefly mental, rather than social, the sinner is
always in trouble, in trepidation. Goodness,
justice, or mercy, either, alone, would form a
very incomplete character. We enter heaven
not as sinners forgiven at the sacrifice of the
justice of God, but becauso of his " bearing our
sins in his body on the tree.
God was enabled to be just, aud yet the jnst
ifier of sinners. This is the glory of the sacri
fice that when we were condemned by his
justice, he died for us, rather then sacrifice
either sinful man or bis own justice. If wo
were righteous " even as he is righteous," then
there was nothing without that could ruffle the
peaceful calm of our bosoms. The man who
is not right in the sight of God has no peace.
Ho then remarked tha. we should desire
peace not only with ourselves and with God,
but also with our fellow men. The reason of
the present troubles in our country was, because
men havo not been willing to do right to their
brethren. Wo should follow the advice of the
President, and pray Gpd to subdue the pride
of opinion in our hearts. And we wanted more
than this : We wanted that fountain of right
eousness in our hearts which is the foundation
of all peace. All say now, that the sky is dark,
but the Christian knows there is a Power above
that can still the troubled waters.
At night, Rev. Prof. S chute, of Columbian
Methodiii Protestant Church. Ninth street.
The pastor, Rev. P. L. Wilson, preached from
I Corinthiuns, 2d chapter and 2d verse : " For I
determined not to know anything among you,
save Jesus Christ and him crucified."
He spoke first of intellectual men spreading
heresies. The wise Greeks sought wisdom, tho
Jews sought a sign; but tho oposlle sought
Christ ana him crucified. Many persons reject
tho scriptures on.uccount of the mystery of rev
elation. We know not God by wisdom, but by
revelation. Some reject revelation, and appeal
to nature, which is as mysterious. He then
drew a comparison between the death of Soc
rates, who studied nature, and Paul, who knew
the God of mysteries, iu favor of the latter.
McKcndrct Chapel. Iu tho morning, Rev.
Mr. Cooper, of Baltimore, preached from part
of the 5th verse of the 13th chapter of He
brews. Ho spoke of the mysterious ways of
Providence in preserving the faithful, and re
ferred to numerous instances where, in answer
to prayer, relief has been mysteriously afforded.
He exhorted bis hearers to look to God in time
of need for succor.
The Young Men's Christian Association will
have special prayer meetings ut their rooms
to day at 0 J A.M., and at 7 P. M. The object
of the meeting is to invoke the Divine blessing
on our country in its present condition.
FuiK. A fire took placo on Saturday night,
about half past nine o'clock, at the Peniten
tiary. A hot-house inside of tho wall was con
sumed. No other damage was done.
Fouuery. Last week a man, who gave his
name as Dr. J. W. Dowcing, of Georgia, was
arrested on charge of forging the name of T.
McLain to a check for several hundred dollars.
He was taken before justice Hazard, and com
mittee in default of bnil.
Potomac River Closed. Navigation on
the river has closed. Jhe Alexandria boats
have ceased running since Saturday, 3 o'clock.
The Southern mail steamer failed on yesterday
afternoon to make connection with the North
Prater for the Union and tiie Charles
ton Convention. A number of clergymen
being present at tho dedication service of tho
Fourth Presbyterian church, yesterday morn
ing, at tho close of the pnblio services they
held an informal meeting, and resolved to meet
together in the evening at the same church,
and at the close of tho regular exercises, for
the purposo of offering up prayers to Almightv
God that he would avert the pending evil
which threatens this nation, and impart wisdom
to the delegates who are to meet to-day in tho
Close or Navigation. On Friday last, in
formation was received in Alexandria that lock
No. 21 on the Chesapeake and Ohio canal,
about sixteen miles above Georgetown, between
Crommelin and Seneca, had caved in; and
could not bo repaired until a thaw. This ac
cident will, it is feared, put an end to naviga

Accident at the Theatre. On Friday
night lost, an unfortunate accident happened
to Mr. J. T. Raymond) the accomplished come
dian of tho company. While rendering, in his
inimitable way, the last stanza of " Villikins
and his Dinah," a trap door near the lights, on
which ho happened to be standing at the time,
suddenly gave way, precipitating him with
sotio violence beneath the stae. His injuries,
which were quite serious, are a source of much
regret to thoso who have been so entertained
by his great powers as a comedian. We learn
that he has since so far recovered as to again
appear upon the stage.
Dead. Mr. A. Colell, a native- of Berlin.
Prussia, and one of the first members of the
Republican Assoclatibn of this city, died on
Saturday evening.. Mr. C. was for many years
an agent for all the German papers that circu
lated in tho District, and was Bixty-five years
old at the time he died. His death was caused
by lock-jaw produced by a surgical operation.
His funeral takes place this afternoon, from his
late residence on Eleventh street, near renn
sylvania avenue, and will be attended by the
members of the German Republican Associa
tion, the German Wide Awake Club, and
Si.tniiii.vo. A great many persons availed
themselves of the fine snow, during Saturday
night and yesterday, to bring out their sleighs
and " have a time. We observed one colored
gentleman, on Saturday night, in a very dilap
idated beaver, driving up Pennsylvania avenue
in a sleigh at a ferocious rate. He seemed to
be particularly displeased with the liberties that
" Young America" hail taken with his hat, and
was surprised that Mayor Berrett did not in
stantly have his assailants arrested. The boys
were restless for Monday to come, when they
might bring out their sleds and commence their
winter's sport. Rut, alas I like all other b ight
dreams, they faded away. The sun rnme out
warm yesterday afternoon, and Monday comes
with plenty of mud, but little snow. So the
' good lime " will have to be indefinitely post
poned. Temperance Meeting. Tho City Temper
ance Society held a meeting yesterday after
noon, in the Congregational Church, on Fifth
street, and were addressed by Mr. Stainsby, of
Hew Jersey, .Mr. V. UamroucK, senior, Dr. i.
G. Clayton, Dr. E. Lockwood, Mr. Brown, of
Massachusetts, and the President, Mr. T. Fiske.
RonnERT. On Saturday evening, John L.
Wilson, a huckster in Centre Market, drove his
wagon, loaded with meat, poultry, vegetables,
and other articles, to the steamboat wharf, to
deliver some of bis merchandise there. While
he was on the steamboat, a man named Wm.
Johnson, alias Lannam, also a huckster, got
in the wagon and drove off. When Wilson
overtook the waon, it was empty. He then
got a warrant for Johnson's arrest. Officer
Watson, on going to the residence of tho latter,
found ail tho goods, with the exception of one
turkey. Johnson made his escape. lie was
apprehended yesterday morning, by officer
Watson, and held for court.
Fire. On Saturday night, about half-past
eight o'clock, a stable belonging to Mr. Wm.
Kibble, situated near K, between Seventeenth
and Eighteenth streets, was discovered to be on
fire. Before the fire companies could reach the
ground, the stable was entirely consumed.
Two horses in the stable at the time were for
tunately saved. In this connection, we would
state that the Union Fire Company havo but
forty or fifty feet of hose a quantity insuf
ficient, of course, for any practical good.
