A SERMON ON CLEANLINESS.-In the
Mutanan Congregationalist Church,
last Sunday, the Rev. O. B. Frothing
ham delivered a sermon on "Pesti?
lence." In the course of his renuirks,
the reverend gentleman said that
pestilence proposes death to supersti?
tion and to the piety that drops on
its knees instead of using its feet and
hands, and to the devotion that putt
np prayers instead of putting down
ignorance. We read tho meaning ol
the pestilence differently. It is obvi
ons it comes to teach us the primary
value of our social condition. 1
charges us to live decently, cleanly
and temperately, or we shall die. Th?
laws of health must be observed. Ii

The Richmond Times has the fol?
lowing intelligible comments on the
defeat and downfall of the late Bri?
tish Ministry :
The downfall, resignation, and the
acceptance of the resignation, of the
Rnssell-Oladston*? Ministry, was look?
ed forward to as something which
could not be avoided, after the news
which reached ns a few days ago. It
ha*-come rather more suddenly than
vt .is expected, however.
The end of the reform bill has
brought about a ministerial crisis
which has been speedily followed by
a change in tho English Cabinet.
"The long debates, fierce contests
aud endless divisions have ended in
the defeat of the bill by which Mr.
Gladstone, a few weeks ago, declared
that he would stand or fall. The bill
and Mr. Gladstone have fallen. A
far more intellectual man than -Lord
Palmerston, and the foremost states?
man and orator of the nineteenth
century, Mr. Gladstone has signally
failed where much inferior men would
have triumphed. His brief career as
Prime Minister has been crowded
with mistakes and blunders, which
his giant intellect was unable to re?
deem. Like the daring pilot of Dry?
den, he has steered straight on rock
after rock to show how wonderfully
he could nan age a vessel.''
The initial, and, indeed, the cardi?
nal, errors of Mr. Gladstone, con?
sisted in his introducing a reform bill
in less than six months from the
death of Lord Palmerston, and a
reform bill which aroused the oppo?
sition of the land influence without
satisfying the masses, lt was a weak,
timid, half-way measure, which would
have been far more worthy of that
old woman, Lord John Russell, than
of a great man like Gladstone.
It is lamentable to think that the
short-lived administration of Mr.
GI .cone will only be remembered
as most an absolute failure. It is
mournful to think that the result of
all the protracted debates and br?
j Liant displays of the present session is
. law for the prevention of the rin
Although the late defeat of the Mi
j nistry was upon one of tho minor
? provisions of tho reform bill, yet the
i defeat was regarded as decisive. Mr.
I Gladstone was distinctly assured in
j debate that he had affronted and
alienated a large body of his ad?
The defeat of the Ministry was
hailed with a wild and furious de
! light, which proved that the preju
i dices of the House of Commons were
; most violently and intemperately ar
! rayed against Mr. Gladstone.
It has doubtless greatly pained the
j numerous admirers in this country of
this very able and distinguished
i statesman, that he fell threatened by
j his supporters, insulted and yelled at
' in tho moment of his defeat, wreck -
i ing himself, it is feared hopelessly,
j and the bill on which he had set his
I heart, and baffling the nation in its
earnest desire for a bold, manly re?
And thus has, in all probability,
j broken up a Government which has
I been in office for several years, and
! at a moment, too, when the continent
of Europe is being lit up by tho lurid
fires of a war that threatens to bring
about greater changes than Europe
has seen for half a century-to shat?
ter thrones, to set brother against
brother and son against son. to opea
an earthquake under nearly every
throne, aud chango the fate of many
a proud and haughty dynasty.
The two possible heads of a new
j ministry belong to the samo family,
j and to tho samo party, while the*,
? represent almost opposite pol?tica
; tendencies. Lord Deri)}* has, in lii>
later life, become a Tory, pure nm"
simple, although he is not in tin
habit of offering obstinate resistance
i to any necessary concessions whicl
may be pressed upon him by pliabh
associates. A high position, a popu
!ar c.i.tract er and a great oratonca
-ii ! y have acquired for Lord Derbj
a i honorary pre-eminence, whicl
will not bo disputed if he claims tin
vacant Premiership. He is very old
now, however, and his failing healtl
and growing weariness of pol?tica
affairs would devolve the real arrange
mont of a Derby Government on i
young and moro ambitious states
mau. Thc coming man, who wil
take the placo of poor Mr. Glad
j stone is, in all probability, Mr. Dis
raeli, who is neither bigoted nor im
The other possible head of the nev
j Government is Lord Stanley. Bu
the leading measures of any Govern
! mont, formed by either Derby o
Stanley, would bc very similar, a
both are conservative chieftains o
the same school.

The Richmond Times hos no hesi?
tation in speaking oat tho truth, as
may be seen from the following :
Shoddy and Petrolio are on the
rampage at the Northern watering
plates, and Jenkinses and Bohemians
of every stripe and character are
chronicling their performances with
ludicrous minuteness. The honors of
the old codfish and mackeral aristo?
cracy pale before the mushroom
splendors which surround and follow
the people who have not made any
contribution to the "conscience
fund." The men who furnished pa?
triotic beef and loyal bacon and
bread to the "Union" armies, and
who supplied the mules and horses
with oats and hay, are now about- to
take out patents of nobility at Sara?
toga and Newport. There is already
a blaze of diamonds, a whirl of new
vehicles, and a rustle of new and
costly dresses, a bundle of gold-head?
ed canes, a number of gold snuff?
boxes, a profusion of gandy breast?
pins, and a very limited amount
of true gentility and refinement.
Many of those gems mid precious
ornaments, if closely examined, will
be found to contain Southern initials
imperfectly erased, like "U. S. " or
"C. S." on a horse or mule, which
the possessor has not come honestly
by. Some of the holders of these
"relics" of the wai-, more frank or
moro impudent than thc rest, will
exhibit publicly ?orne ring which he
stole down in "Dixie,"and will plume
himself greatly on this "trophy,"
which he snatched from tho finger of
some Southern dame or damsel. Per?
haps it was her wedding ring, or the
pledge of vows made to some hero
whoso dust now reposes in Holly?
wood. No matter; the ex raider or ex
roguo no less conspicuously parades it
as if it were a sword or pistol taken in
the honorable heat of bloody couibat.
He had no taste for the acquisition of
these deadly weapons; hence his
raids were confined to rings, family
plate, chickens, ducks, turkics, geese,
house linen and huttcr-milk. He,
therefore, in consequence of tho dis?
cretion which he exercised during the
war, managed to survive its dangers,
sud, to-day, he is a great man at the
watering-places. As lying is gene?
rally the companion of theft, he is at
no loss to describe all the terrible bat?
tles and single encounters in which
he has participated, and generally
goes to bed at night with sin enough
on his conscience to toke him to
Hades, if he dies before next morn?
ing. But ho does not die; Satan has
use for such men, and keeps them
rdivo f\o long o>a possible.
SKNSATIOSAJ-. - The notorious For?
ney, writing from Washington to his
paper in Philadelphia, says:
"Should th?> attempt to bribe and
intimidate the Legislature o? the so?
vereign States succeed in thu defeat
of the article adapting tho National
Constitution to the changes demand?
ed bj' the overthrow of treason and
slavery, Andrew Johnson's next step
will bo to call upou the recently se?
ceded States to elect members to
Congress, and to choose electors in
the coming Presidential election on
the present, basis ol' representation.
Here you have his programme at a
glance. The result may answer the
question, whether the war for human
freedom was fought in vain. If I
understand the utterances of Mr. So?
ward, who seems to be tho presiding
genius in this terrible proceeding,
the President and his friends do not
deny that they intend to employ

States do not tamely submit to it."

tiona goes to show that the Mexican j
people, so long scattered and hitherto
so divided in iutcrest, were be

appeared as if the Marshal dreaded
that thc French troops would not bc
permitted to retire from the country
in quiet marching order, but perhaps
becompelled to leave in the attitude of
men forced to go. To prevent, if
possible, such a contingency, by con?
