"Had we not better retain until they

In Brooklyn all devoat people who
prefer to have ther religion served up
with Cayenne pepper mixed with rose

the Rev. Dewitt Talmage is pastor.

another snd more gorgeous tabernnele
then before By his admirers Mr. Tal
msge is believed to bs far superior as a
preacher to his prntoype, Spnrgoon,
who holds forth in the borough ol
Sonthwark, on the esst side of the
Thames. Parson Tal mags is a sort of
snore antique Presbyterian, aud his con
gregation, ss iwtueese one numbers
sjvor twelve thousand persons. Half of
the pretty girls who were wont tn>attend
Plymouth Chnrch bars deserted it, and
are now steady communicants at ths
shrine ef the fiery snd poetical Parson
Talrange, who holds the same rank in
the chnrch that Walt Whitman holds
among the naves. Some idea may then
be forrcod of the excitement that whs
caused in the breasts of 3,000 fsir ladies
of XaJmagc'e ohnrch, who are in nightly
stUedaoce at (he fair at the Brooklyn
Academy, when it wss sanonnocd that
n nodding would tske place .last even
Lng on the stage of that histrionic build
ing, aid that Rsv. Mr. Tabings would
officiate and join two loviug hearts io
tho holy bonds of wedlock. The mar
riage some people might suspoct to he
an sdvertising dodge to draw n crowd
to the fair st an oxtr.i admission, but all
doubts as to its probability, a* woll .is
its authenticity, wore set at res' by tho
appearance oF the following ticket,
which was sold at the door of the Acade

At half past scvon o'clock last even
ing the erowds of well dressed and
enthusiastic pcrsous who had assembled
in the vicinity of the Academy doors
waa really extraordinary. There was
a crash ef satins and velvets, a marvel
ous combination of perfumes and torrent
of small talk.
"What will she wear, I wonder ?"
asked one young lady who evidently
believed that marrying nnd giri'ng in
marriage was the chief business in life.
"YYhat kind of a fellow is the bride
groom ; is he solid J" remarked an ex
cited dry goods clerk.
"I ruppose Mr. Talmagc will give
them his blessing, and send them ttome
iti a truck at the expense ol thochurih,"
suggested nn individual whose trre\er
ence was only excelled by the blooruiug
glare of red scarf.
And here let it be understood that an
advertisement had been inscr'cd for
some days, in whi?h ii ??*a jia.depth**
auy re?p?cuhle couple who wished to be
married free of cost and iu costume of a
hundred years ago, on the itage of the
Brooklyn Academy of Music, would be
provided with the necessary costume* j
and outfit teutporarily, by the managers
of the Tabernacle, free. To this adver
tisement there were fifty-two answers,
and it was necessary, notwithstanding
the desiro for notoriety ahvayicto he
f-?u:id atimn;^ a free and enlightened !
American public, to select one couple.
The happy tvniu Tbo dro* the lucky
nu'..,lvr were Janies SVilletts ahd Minnie
Wtllctts, of Stamford, Conn., who held
until last night the relation of cousins.
(.% Blnmes supposed to represent the Now
England of one hundred years ago but
which in reality wera suggestive ol
every lsnd under the sun tor the titty
years antecedent to the battle of New
Orleans, were loaned by a masked ball
costumcr, who was ducidedly anxious to
have his osmc 'n the Harald, but who
must, for obvious reasons, remain for
ever iu ob>curity. For one Lour the
happy couple were to be gilded with
the ofFulgcnee of borrowed plumes, aud
then they wer* to relapse into their nor
mal and bucolic Connecticut apparel.
The doors of the Academy, which has
a very handsome iutorior, swung open
and displaced the stage, decorated aa it
would have been in Athens er Aloxan
dria, 1,5tr() years ago, lor the ^i. hum
that were to f'<x!low. The crowds of
well-dress d men and wome t so 1 boys
and girls swarmed in and took their
seats. A burst of music, wild and
triumphant, broke from the brazen
instruments in the orchestra, and u ?loa I
silence followed for a moment, only to
be suceerdej by the kali'whispered
gossip, so dear to all feminine hearts
Th^n solemnly up tha main aisle ?
.'hall it be called to aisle under the oir
enmstnncea?proceeded s hetrrogenious
procession of about ihirty pers-ms clad
in tho costume of a hundred years gone
by. First came tho bridegroom, a raw
counlry lad of twenty years, in a blue
velvet, coat trimmed with silver bin line;
a white satin vest edged with gold and
small gilt buttons, and white silk stock
ings an I smalls. Iiis hnir was p ut lere 1

tho groomsmen and the bridesmaids?the
former haying thoir hair powdjrod and
wearing white siik stockings and brooch

in their eyes and the bridesmaids wear
ing Dolly Vardeo and Wattead dresses
looped up, tho hair powdered n hi
Pompadour, and their tine shoulders
adorned with salmon-colored and white
crape shawls. Tho coiffers woro eur
rounded by large horn combs, such as
our great-grand mothers woro, and the
entire party wore a look of blissful anil
eagsr expectation. Tho name of tho
ladies and gentlemen attendant on tho
ride and bridegroom, who followed
hem arm in arm, were as follows: Mr.
K. Latham and Mrs. McFarlane, Mr.
W. H. Haws and Mrs TV. H. Haws.
Mr. DeForest Voorhies and Mrs. Clurk,
Mr. D. Seelcy and Miss Matilda Ilawx

Sloutcnhurg, Mr. A. 0. Jones and Mrs.
Wall er, and Mr. and Mrs I'aul Sto it.
Mrs. Clark was most distinguished for
conversational ability, and Mr. dunes
for gallant and knightly bearing although
his armor did not fit him well. As the
happy party reached the base of the
?tage, at the cud of the parsage, the
orchestra etrnck up Mendelssohn's mag
nificent "Wedding Marth," and the
bridegroom and bride followed by all
their attendants, mounted the Stage aud
formed u wido souii circle, extending
nearly tho whole width ol the prosceni

audience Rev. He Witt Tnlmage as

at a signal made them hy the pastor, ad
vanced slooc from the semi-circle aud
stood before Mr. Tnlmage, who was
ready to marry them. Mr. Tulmage,
who necessarily had his Lack to the
audience and was dressed in plain black
clothes, began tho marriage isomco ol
the Presbyterian Church in a lo.v t mo,
and tho responses ware made in an in
distinct manner by thu happy couple,
who married without a ring, according
u? the Pre&bytcriaii fashion. ''Pur bet
ter or for worse, until death d ith you
part," whispered Mr.Tnlmage, und t!i n.
uot feeling himself, from his d irp cm ?
lion, equal to tho task, ho said t > tin ol 1

Ltthant, please kiss the bri le for m !."
The old gctlcmaa rushed for ard with
the agility of a mountain goal an 1
smacked tho bride, aud all the bridal
attendants shook bauds, several of the
gentlemen kissing the brido in turn
Then tho audience nppaud -1. the bri Ic

divested themselves of thoir borrowed

Tho Farmers' Movement Against
ilaving for some years forcsocn that
tho next phase of popular aud political
ngitatioo would turn upou administra
tive and economic questions, vre are not
unprepared to consider these intricate
subjects, nor does the Republican party
shrink from the assumption of the re
sponsibility to aid iu thoir solution.
The agitation of the question of cheap
railway tolls, which has been carried on
in Illinois and the adjoining States, cul
minated in the holding of a regular
Stiles convention at Springfield, 111. in
which the fanners were represented by
upwards of three hundred regularly
eii sen and accredited delegates; and
thus the movement has assumed a tuag.
nit ti le that challenges the attention of
the entire country.
We regret to observe that it is a class
movement; for we would'have greatly
preferred if our citizens generally with
out distinction of occupation or political
profession, who are injuriously affected
by the cxtaortionato demands on the part
of railways for toll and fare had united
to device proper remedies.
There is always danger that a class
movement will be self-interested, partial
and prejudiced and that it will arouse
tha jealousy of other interests. The
farmers are, moreover, likely to be temp
ted I)}' political demagogues to incorpor
ate in their platform resolution! of a
purely political nature, so that a few of
?**?,,? nuy l"? iouaSedad into now nnrtv
relations. Should they yield to these
insidioiu suggestions the railroad* will
not be slow to take advantage of t Ii is
mi take to divert the current of public
opiniou by the substitutiou of question*,
that are but remotely connected with the
mint of issue. Tints far the farmer**
have pursued a judicious course; and the

Photographic Feat.?A San Fran
oiaoo photographer has succeeded in ob
taining a picture of a race horse going
at its highest speed. A local paper
states that the artist procured all the;
sheets to be had in the stable, and with
these made a reflecting back ground.
Over this OcddcM was trained to trot,
aud everything was then in readiness
for the trial. Tho great difficulty was
to transits an impression wmie tno norso"
was moving at tho rate of thirty eight
feet to tho second. Tho first experiment,
of opening and closing the camera on
the first day left Ub result; the se.-nsd
day, with increased velocity in opening
and closing, a shadow was caught. On
the third day, the artist haying Studied
tho matter thoroughly, contrived to
haye two boards slip past each other by
touching a spring, aud in so doing to
leave uu eighth of an inch opening for
the Gvo ituudredth part of a second, as
the horse rasscd, and by an arrangement
of double lenss.s, crossed secured a qeger
live that shows Occvfont in full motion
?a perfect likeness of the horse, The
space of titno wss so small that the

A Good Farmer.?One of our best
and Uioat accurate farmers informs us
says tho Country Gentlem?nt that when
a boy, as soon as he had learned book*
keeping at school his father employed
him to keep tho farm account?tho eost
of labor, amount of work expended on
each field time of pcrfor uing operations
plowing, sowing, cultivating and har
vesting, amount of crop, pricet ^t which
Sales were made, Ac. lie s0v.<n becamo
much interested in farm operations, and
throughly aco, tainted with all tho detail
of w >rk, in a moro complete manner
than he ever c till have been in any
nther way, and was early placed on the
track of farming regularly and systema
tically. Let other farmers follow this
example with .their sons, and we should
have less of random hip-skip husbandry
and more ef order and success.
A London correspondent says : Mr.
Gladstone and Mr. Disraeli, unlike in
many things, arc particularly unlike in
their manner of entering the House.
Mr. Uludstona usually slips in with a
rapid step from behind the Speaker's
chair, Looking suddeuly at the front
bench you see him there. Mr. Disraeli
takes the opposite course. Ho enters ai
the door which is farthest from hia seat.
Ou a field ntght ho ordinarily stays
away until the t hamber is full and our
ious. Shortly before five o'clock ho
saunters in, his coat unbottened and
thrown back, one hand holding out his
bat a little way, his stop slow, hia fea
tures wtsriug a stolid or indillere.it ex
pression. Strangers whisper, "There's
1 uxay 1" "Where t" " ?? hy just going
up the floor to bis seat." "Ob, I see
him ; dour me, so it is."
