The Boston Recorder, one of the oldest and
best religious piipers in the United States, is
taking airoog ground against clergymen lesv.
nig their pjjptle to become legisiainra or pou
ticiana. ' We wish (aays the New York Jour
nal of Commerce) it would also write an ar
ticle against ministers becoming politicisns m
the pulpit. Of the two, the latter appears to
us the greater evil. Indeed, if ministers are
deletmined to be politician should they not
be encouraged to leave their pulpits, and to
leave ttieni permanently, rather than convert
them into (ostiums for political harangues f
If they were away, the pieces which tbey oc.

kindle upon it. It must occup) his public
and his niivate hours. But if a minister thus
devotes himself to politics or legislation, bis
mind is by necessity in a great measure wun
drawn from that sacred work to which be
stands pledged to be whollyrievoted. No man
can aerve two masters. No man can fill pro

A Good Old Age.
There it- living ia Plymouth lounshin an
aged lady named Peggy Lerch, and known gen
erally at Peggy Lurk. She is of German ex
traction, born In New jersey, in the German
Valley, on the llh of i'ebruar.y, i?Sl, and ia
now in hey JUotb. year. Mie moved to Wvom-
ing 65 yearn ago with her husband, who has
been dead 60 y earn.- She is clear minded, and
of good memofy, and loves to talk of old times.
On her 103d birth day the walked over to Capt.
Walier.4 to aine as sue nau uone lor seveial
vears, a distance ol more than half a mile.
This year she wss unable to do so, having fal
len and hurt net tic, tier sleep ii good ex
cept at limes disturbed by a cough which trou
bles her. She remembers seeing Gen. Wash
ington, and has a clear recollection of events
of -the revolution. - '
Her father, Michael Pace, died many years
ago, at Nortnemoerlanrt, now in w yomimi:
county, at the advanced nge or 1U3 years -He
paid her a viail before he died, and told
ber ahe might live to his age. She said she
boned not, "And now," she says, "1 iim a
year elder." . A brother recently died in Nor
thumberland, aged near-ninety.
We visited the aged lady on Monday Inst,
and fonnd her sitting by a comfortable stove,
with t book on her lep. Sherendssmall print
without spectacles, but thinks old age is hard,
and hat but few pleasures. Mrs. Murphy,
with whom she lives, it a niece, and the old
lady tpoke of her aa very kind, and the niece
said the aunt was always pleasant and con
tented and no trouble.
We are eorry lo hear that the Poor Master
talks of removing her, for some cause, much
sgainst ber wish. We hope it is not so, and
that the inhabitants of Plymouth will not per
mit the little comfort of so aged a lady to be
abridged, by taking her from the company of
her only near relative with whom she seems to
be so contented. Whatever the cost, it can
only be for a little time longer, and it is said
she has property lo pay, it' her rights are res
pected. WiMresWr Record. '

Cold Water And Prosperity. Our Country in 1784 and 1855.
How striking tb aoirtlnst between this

In 1781, '.here was scarcely a nation in
Europe that thought it worth while to form a
tieaty with the United Stales; in 1855 the
United Stab-stake their place among the four1
principal powers of th globe. TAen.our de-'
fenceless merchantmen were an easy prey to
the coraairs of the Mediterranean: note, our!
Government, by our diplomacy and influence,
it opening to its commerce mi ancient empire
on the opposite side of the eanh, which lias
for countless aces been firmly closed against
the whole world.
Seventy years ngo.there were thirteen feeble
republics on Ihe eastern coast of North Amer
ica, with all the petty jealousies of contigu
ous rival Stales, inflicting injuries upon each
other by hostile legislation; to day they area
powerful confederacy of more than thirty
Statu, stretching from the Atlantic to Ihe Pa
cific, all their commercial interests blended
and harmonized by onf superintending legis
lature, ana protected by one- centtal prepon
derating power. -
In 1784, the people of the thirteen States
had "acheived nothing but their independence
and contributed nothing but the free govern
ment" but their solemn purpose to enjoy it.
To-day they are a people blessed with insti
tutiont guaranteeing the greatest liberty, re
viving and protecting all the arts of peace, ag
riculture, commerce and letters, expanding
over a continent, subduing the farthest reces
sed of nature spreading far and wide the fruit
of civilization andChristiansty, holding forth
an example to which mankind may look for

IfTBill Poole lived Ue ye days with tbe ball
that killed him in his heart. The Tribune,
staling the facts pf the post mortem examina
tion of Poole, says:
"The ball in the cbes! entered the sternum
just at its junction with the cartilage of th
filth ribs pasaing through the bone and penca
dium into thesub-Jauce of the heart, where
it was found. On raising the breast bone and
exposing the pencadium, it was lound very
much distended, measutinghre inches 111 Us
transverse diameter, and six in its vertical.
It contained about thirty ounces of aero san
guineous fluid. The external surface of
heart was covered with fiuernous exudation
the recent product of inflam.nion. The heart
was washed and laid aside, with no sua
picion that the ball was lodged in it until a
ter nearly two hours search in the cavity
the chest, and especially along the side of th
spine. At last the heart was very caiefully
felt over, and the bullet was found imbedded
in its muscular texturf. On making the incis
ion, it waa exposed. Its lodgement was in
septum, between the venlnclea, about an inch
and a half from the apex of the heart, and
quarter of an inch from its surface. Tba mus
cular substance had united over the ball
healed ao far that the point of entrance
obliterated. He lived for twelve ays with
out any palpitation, or any fainting or syncope
auch as is usually experienced in a morbid
condition of Ihe heart. lis action was perfect
ly regular. There is no question but tliat.un
der favorable circumstances, he might have
recovered, and experienced little, if any
from the ball.

"About half a 'century nzo the exant veaa
is not known there was born at Leeds, Eng-
mnu, mnn nameu 1 nomas uray. Scarcely
anythuii is known of his early history. H
c uencte, r poor coiner, and being very
ingenious, he conceived the idea of facilita
ting ti e ironspotiotion of coal from the Mid
dletown colliery of Leeds, a distance of lbr
ruiles, by means of a sort of railway which h
had constructed of wood. Upon this hit cars
moved at the rate of three miles and a half
an hour, to the great merrirm-nt of a wise and
discriminating public, who laughed at the idea
of a railway,, as something very visionary, and
as the mere suggestion of laziness. Poor Gray
thought otherwise. Magnificent visions of fu
ture railways, such as are now- stupendous re.
a lilies, loomed up before him, and he began
to talk in public or a general system of iron,
railroads. He was, of course, laughed tt,
and declared a visionary moon-struck fool.
But the more Gray contemplated his little rail-'
way for cor.l the more firmly did he believe in
the practicability and immense usefulness of
Ins scheme. He saw in it all that ia now re-.
a'.ii-ed, and he resolved, in spite of the ridi
cute, the sneers and rebuffs that were heaped
upon nun, to prosecute his undertaking He

down upon him wheriVer he went Ihe loud
sneers and ridicule of all clasaee. Siill ha
persevered, .and at lentlh engaged tbe atten

finally embraced Ii is views, urged his plans, '
and the result is now before the world. Tho
