VFKIDAY MORNING, JULY 20th, 1866.
Wit and Justice ia Missouri
Tt is well tnown that some of the Judge3
J Missouri are very reluctant to enforce
riha law against ministers of the gospel for
'xercising their profession without haviDg
jLkeri the test oath, and avail themselves of
Lvety pretense to discharge those who are
Accused. We tell the following tale as 'tis
old us, vouching for nothing:
X'l'hree ministers charged with the crime
'preaching the "glorious gospel of the
of God," were arraigned before a Judge.
,.ey were regularly indicted, and it was
iderstood that tho proof against them was
jjderstood that tho proof against the

I'Are you a preacher?" said tbe Judge to
e of them.
'Yes, sir," replied the culprit.
"To what denomination do you belong'
"I am a Christian." (With much dig
"A Christian! What do you mean by
that? Are not all preachers Christians?"
"I belong to the sect usually called, but
wrongly called, Campbellits.' (Notsomuch
"Ah! then you beliete in baptizing peo-
iple, in order that they may bo born again,
"I do, eir." (Defiantly.)
"Mr. Sheriff, discharge that man! Ie

preaching tho g03pel, and there isn't a word
gospel in the stuff that he preaches! it's
inly some of Alexander Campbell's non-
tuncn "TJ ! acA a rrra t.liA man!"
Exit Campbellite, greatly rejoicing.
"Are you a preacher?" said tho Judge,
ddressinf tho next criminal.
"Iam, 6ir," said the miscreant
"Of what denomination are you?"
"I am a Methodist, sir. (His looks
lowed it.) .
I "Do you believo in falling from grace?"
"I do, sir." (Without hesitation.)

"I do." (Firmly.)

"And you baptize but thoso who believe
in Jesu3 Christ?"
"That is my faith and practice." (With
"My friend, I fear it will go hard with
you; I seo you are indicted for preaching

Baptist looked pretty blue.
"May it please your Honor," said the
Baptist's connsel, springing to his feet,
"that man never preached the gospel. I
have heard him say a hundred times that
he otily tried. . I have heard him try my
self." "Mr. Sheriff, discharge this man! He's
not indicted for trying! There's nothiug
said about tho mero effort! Let him go,
I sir! Turn him loose! Send him about his
business! I am astonished that the Stage's
lattorney should annoy the court with frivo-
I lous indictments!"
Exit Baptist, determined to "try" again.

HATES OF POSTAGE.

many letters of importance are daily lost to those
interested by being improperly or insufficiently
stamped. The regulations require that all such let
ters dropped into post offices shall b immediately
forwarded to the Dead Letter office, where they are
never heard from unless they contain money, or
other enclosures of value. We give below some in

Opinions of Distinguished Busi
"Advertise your business. . Do not hide your
light under a bushel. Whatever your calling or
occupation may be, if it needs support from the
public, advertise it thoroughly and efficiently in
some shape or other, that will arrest public atter
tion. IV'roely confess that what success I have had
in life may fairly be attributed more to the publio
press than to nearly all the other causes combined.
There may possibly bo occupations that do not re
quire advertising, "but I cannot well conceive what
thev aie. P". T. Barscm.
"I have always conidered advertising liberally
and long to be the great medium of success in bus
iness, and the prelude to wealth. And I have al
ways mado it an invariable rule, too, to advertise
in the dullest times, a longesperiencehavingtaught
me that money thus spent is well laid out; as by
keeping my business continually before the public,
lias secured me many sales that I Otherwise would
liavelost." Stephen Gibaed.
"Whatever success I may have had in business I
owe mainly to continuous advertising, and I deem
it good policy to advertise long in the same papers.
From a close observation I am fully convinced that
it is impossible to make much headway in any kind
of business, without the facilities which the press
alone can give. Jacob Kidgewat.
"Jt motto through lite has boen, work and ad
vertise. In busines, advertising ia the true philos
opher's stone, that turns whatever it touches to
gold. I have advertised much, both in the weekly
as well as the daily papers; nor have 1 found that
those of the largest circulation, of either class, ben
efitted me the most. John Jacob Astor.
'Advertise! advertise! advertise! This is the life
of trade; and standing advertisements, yon will
find, will prove the most remuneiative, at least I
have found it so during my business career thus far;
for should you withdraw bat a single week from the
paper in which, you are accustomed to advertise, ten
to one that would be the time when seme would be
Dew customers will look into the paper for your bus
