Preaching by the Chinese.
Kf.ano-iioo, or dimming ancient affairs,

of out door or street preaching, not uncom

days always cnnstiliiles the theme oi these
liarrniigitrs. The preacher is generally

nnd his subject end oratory not iilifiemiently

Having commuted to memory an histori
cal novel, filled with sinking incidents,
repents it lo his audience, nccompimind
the diversified tones am! gestures of d'm

or laughter. Should tinv of his henr-
