Cormorants in the Butcher
* Never before, perhaps, has there
been such f feast to the cormorants as
that f'irnished by the Beecher-Tilton
cargiass. While the unclean tragedy
bas been'the occasion of deep shame
and unfeigned humiliation to the Chris
tianized of Christendom and to the
unstanized portion of humanity, there
are those who cannot conceal a some
thing-hard to name-which is akin to
the rejoicing of those who have found
'reat spoil." Many men denounce
the Brooklyn iniqjuity, probably not,so
much from an abhorrence of the crime
as from a dislike or hatred for a Chris
tian minister. The occasion seems too
good-to be lost. These eager marks
inmen shoot at the crime because theyv
can hit a minister, and insinuate, as
they blow the smoke from their foul
-- i ng-pieces, that the unfortunate victim
is but a sample of the rest. To stamp
under a fallen minister, and, by insi nu
ation. becloud the character of the
clergy in general, helps much with
some people to take away the reproof
and condem:nation which the gospel
ministry gives to mauy crimes of which
ly innocent to justify them in throwing~
hoth th'e first and the last stone. Some
* persons umy say what they please
about our want of charity in such an
exDression, hut we write what we fully
believe, that there are thousands of
men who are inwardly glad when a
.minister falls, and that Mr. Beecher is
iii a condition so perilous or fallen as
hie is. The envious are sorry in words,
-but contcnt at heart. The professed
sorrow of many is as untrue to the
feelings of their hearts as the charge
against Beecher would make him un
true to his own wife. They are glad.
and they cannot deny it nodide it ;
for as the great Brooklyn preacher
sinks lower and lower, these are less
careful to suppress their indigauti joy.
and less cautious in selecting words to
eonceal their thoughts. Since feeding
so long and delectably on jainted meat,
they seem to think that ministerial
cha~racter in general, whether good or
bad, is public food for any cormorant
with a gnawing stomnach. Here is what

Cokesbury District Conference.
We have just returned from the
charming town of Greenwood, in at
tendance on the District Conference,
which convened there on last Wed- 1
neslay. As it is too late this week
to give a notice of it we will endeavor
to do so in our next issue.
A Merited Rebuke.
Under heading, "Laborers in the
Vineyard," &c., published in another t
column, follows a merited rebuke to s
the editor of the Union-Herald from
the pen of the Rev. Sidi H. Brown,
editor of that excellent paper, the L
Christian Neighbor. While we de- j
plore the necessity of such a rebuke, t
we rejoice that our friend has adminis
tered it, and in such an effectual man- I
ner. A dirtier slander was never ut- t
tered than that of the Union-Berald's t
editor, and we feel the greatest sur- t
prise that he could so far forget him- i
self and the position he occupies as to <
write anything so unjust, so foul. We
conmend the article to careful perusal. t
A New Motive Power.
Vonders will never cease. It is
solemnly announced through the New
York Tribune that within thirty days
a train of twenty Pullman cars will be
drawn from Philadelphia to New York
without electricity, hot air, or any
other known motive power. The in
ventor, John W. Kelly, is now build
ing a larger engine for the purposes of
actual work, a smaller experimental
one having been found to work ad
mnirably. The little machine exerts
through the small tube one-eight of an
inch in diameter a pressure varying
from 2,000 to 5,000 pounds to the
square inch, at the will of the opera
tor. The motive power is kept a secret.
Tl-e inventor triks about the multi
plied power of hydraulic columns.
One of the principal owners of the
invention accounts for the strange
for-ce on the supposition that the ma
-chine separates water into its ultimate
atoms and changes their cohesive force
-into one of strong repulsion. What
ever the success of this inven'ion,
thera can be little doubt that in the
Inear future pressure of air and decom
position of water will furnish the great
motive power;- and that finally the
sunlight, the ultimate source of all
power, will be stored anid utilized to
become the immediate source ot all
motive power and heat. We shall
travel and cook and warm and light our
-rooms with a sunbeam. The days ofi
coal and steam are evidently numbered.
The fear that our'coal might give out
and we might freeze to death, need
not disturb anybody's sleep. We
would rather not invest in Lehigh
stock just now.
The Indian Deputationi.
The descendants of Mr. Lo, the

Spotted Tail, and Little Wound, andi

tne standard pr-ovisions stipulated
to be furnished ; they complain of an 1
invasion of their reserved hunting
grounds, of the digging of gold in
the Black Hills, and are full of their 1
wrongs generally. They had a big
talk with the government ofieials, and
a ver-y plain one on their side. They
utterly refused to be bamboozled. and
they were obviously oi,e too mely for
Secretary D)elano and his crew. They
had evidently come with an intensc
distruast in honeyed words; elegant
rooms and rich viands had no effect
on them. An effort was made to get
them in a good humor by having their
photographs taken ; but Red Cloud
would not consenit unless they paid
him $25 for his picture. Delano I
