The officers of the Vewbern Light Iufantry re
turned front Raleigh yesterday afternoon, as well
as most of the visitors of the Exhibition

qualities, the most prominent of which was the

At the sjpointed hour, the Convention met, and
was called to order by Gen. Avery. Iolutions
expressive of the wishes ot the Convention were
adopted, and the Chairman appointed Capts
Cook, Jones, Hall, Brice, Carmer, DaihyKl

of North Carolina, and aftord relief and encourage

Each member of the committee was requested
to present hisr opinion ot the retorm needed, in

But urood men will not long be identified with
such things, their yj uses, or their nominal, un-

a personal, living interest in the community, can

sermons, should be 4j)rced tdlo so without a con
gregation or a cbnpedfatioil. Consider the Unity
eloquent brevity of Christ's sermon on the mount.
"Timewits when preaching, in many sections
of our country, was once in two or foiir veeks,
and then long sermons were tolerated. Now,
aching is within the reaen omost persons ev-
erySabbath.-and even twice in the same day. To
sit now, and be bored for an hour and a half by
any man, in the delivery of a single sermon, is
preposterous, but to be thus bored by a man of
ordinary talents, is enough to disgust good men,
and force sinners to swear ! When a sermon
reaches beyond 45 or (JO minutes, we regard., the
audience as justifiable in rising up and leaving
the house, thereby expressing their opposition to
the length of the sermon in a style so terse and
epigrammatic as not fft-be misunderstood.
"With us, aermon has passed the" Rubicon,
when it exceeds forty minutes, unless the preacher

remarkable foree juic! beauty of language prer
seating his theme with an eloquence that charms,
with that critical acumen that fascinates, and that
richness of diction that captivates an audience !

A Mute Marriage Service. The New York
LExpress gives the foHo wing description of a mute
marriage service : -
" It is seldom we havei-witnessed so beautiful a
ceremony .as the marriage of Miss Ellen JB1
of Boston, to Mr. Trist, of Philadelphia, son of
the well-known negotiator .of the Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo,

service of the Kp'scopal Church, but new
graces and lorce were lent it by. the symbolic
rendering of the Rev. Mr. Gallaudet, who with
Rev. Pierre Irving performed the ceremony. The
Rev. Mr. Irving very slowly and emphatically
read the service, which Mr. Gallaudet translated
by signs wllh wonderful fidelity and rapidity,
the bride and groom repeating these signs as they
w,ere indicated by their clergyman. Several times
the sign-language lingered after the word-language
had ceased, and than the silence which
reigned an the "church and the breathless interest
which emM0ined every spectator was almost pain
ful. Thesolemn vows being symboled before
the ThroneOf. Grace, the Lord's Prayer followed ;
and who can describe the mute eloquence of that
mute prayer so devotipnally followed by the young
couple! When the nupital benediction was silent
lvvpronounced above the lowly-bowed heads of
tfife . kneeling pair, there was that which spoke
loiiaer than words in the graceful sign-language
of the officiating minister. A few letters a word

to ' God, who had bo.und together7: the tight

placed in blessing upon the heaHs of the now
' man and wife ? a solemn silence and all was
over.: No one moved for some moments; we all
felt vffe had caught a glimpse of the spirit-land,
and we longed for one more glance into that si
lent spiritwtruF But the groom was leading
his beaatiful, graceful bride to the church door ;
we have her quiet happy smile put away in our
memory to gladden some dark hour. Ere we
could utter a fervent 'God bless you,' they had

think that we Are all " sucked in ; " those " Stars "
that were rexorted to have"been engaged for the
season here, have failed to make their appearance.
Booth, Burton, Julia Deau Hayne, nor the Ra veil's

here, have not made their debut, neither will they.
They all are engaged, and are now filling their
engagement, but not at Wilmington. The cont

their first appearance. The non appearance of
the promised " Lights " have thrown a decided
damper on our theatre-going public. Although
there has been considerable " blowing " through
the press, it is our opinion that it was all done on
the strength of those promises ; for here within a
day or two past their notices have grown " small

and with all the pomp and importance, that is
characteristic of such Lords, invited the whole
establishment down, to partake of a lunch ; and
as printers are very polite, tearing that they
might-insult the kind donor should they refuse,
they all with one accord accepted the saute, and
that evening, after they had finished their days
toil, was set aArt for the visit; the topic of con
