Honor, to whom honor," oic. The
Bulletin reporter is in despair. He unlu.
nationally reported Mrs. J. M. Lansdcn in
stead ol Mrs. Schlcsblnger as tho lady who
sang at the Rev. Mr, Thayer's lecture on
Monday night. The mistake occurred in
thiswise: Our reporter, brave as a lion on
most occasions, Is a bashful man in the pres
ence of the ladles. When he entered the
Prcsbyterlau church on iMonday night ho
could not screw his courage, to tho sticking
point and stare Iu the face the ladles iu the
vicinity of the orcan. Aware that Jlrs.
Lansden had been announced to sing, and
unaware ot her illness, lie supposoil tho lady
..Uv .aa in lm . Latmlen. Wo hope
tuis explanation is tauiractory to our con
sclcntlous reporter and to the lady whoso
singing was an attractive feature on tho oc
caslou of the delivery of Mr, Thayer's lec
Editor ol The Bulletin :
Wo were entertained and Instructed with
tho lecturo on "Self-made men" etc., dcliv
crcd last night. It was evidently elaborately
prepared, abounded in sayings and adages
of tho sages of the past ages. The conccn
tratcd wisdom, both divine and human, is
embodied In these eminently practical pro,
verbs. It Is well to repeat them, for the
present generation Is likely to forget them
But the great difficulty is to reduce them to
practice in social life. The lecturer ucmon
stratcd that the mcu, both of tho past and
nrcscnt nsres, who have distinguished thcin
selves, and become the benefactors and cc
Icbrltcs, arc men who roso from obscurity
and penury ; wen whose Indomitable cuer
glcs hewed their way to greatness. But was
It not in despite of tho frowns and sneers of
the rich and the would-be aristocrats?
It Is historically truo that,
Honor and famo from no condition rise.
Act Well your part Uicro all the houorlics."
But do the majority of the rich and the
clannish believe it? Are they doing, by pre
cept und example, what they can to encour
ago tho poor and unfortunate to rlso, and to
distinguish themselves? It Is usually the
caso that genius and talent are poorly recog
nized, till, by their native force, the public
are compelled to recognize them. Would it
not bo well for us to practice what wo
iimuelt. uiiil lUua ijiuid iliat aiv f
Consistency! thou art a jewel a gemrarely
to be found? Even professed Christians and
Christian ministers shun the poor, tho help
less and tho widowed in their own churches,
They forget that their Master was born in a
manger, und that ho went among the poorto
do them good. "The poor," he said, "yo
have always with you that you may do them
good." I hopo the lesson Inculcated so
warmly by tho lecturer will bo appreciated
and exemplified by all who heard, him.
The lecturer's sharp hints at tho jiosltlvo In.
doleneo and effeminacy of tho crop of fops,
and Flora) McFllmsays, will do good. II
such eould realize how contemptible they
appear In the eyes of the sensible, they would
become asuumeu ot themselves. But, oh!
how true the words ol tho Bcottlsh bard:
"Oh I would some power the gift would give
To see ourselves as others sco us,
It woulu Irora inany'a blunder free us,
Ana :ooiisii notion."
' Let mo closo by quoting the last proverb
of a groat man, who had largo experience ot
the weakness of poor human nature :
"Poor humanity 1 how 1 love you you are
so weak I had like to liuve said, you are so
