THE RESULT.
The election Tuesday resulted in a
general victory of the Democracy in
many of the States and gains in oth -

per cent; but the indications are that
we have elected nine out of teu Con-

A clfrgymau's cat at West Spring
field, Mas., has shown some remark
able symptoms of natural depravity.
After giving birth to seven kittens
recently, of various colors, she removed
thc two blackest from the group and
utterly refused to take any notice of
them. No sooner were they restored

Dr John Hall, remarking that in
England they distinguish people into
two classes. Churchmen and Dissen
ters, thinks that in America they
might be divided into Churchmen and
Absenters.
The Methodists of Murfrecsboro
have divided that city into missionary
districts and placed each district under j
the superintendence of oue or more
Sabbath School teachers. "The idea
Is to thoroughly canvass the town, iu
order to bring under religious instruc
tion children who do not attend any
of the Sabbath Schools."
The reason assigned by the Chicago
j Tribune for thc rejection of Dr Sey-
mour for thc bishop of the Diocese of
Illinois, was because of his supposed
Ritualistic tendencies. The Issue be
tween Ritualists and anti-Ritualists is
thus squarely raised, and it not im-;
probable w ill result in a schism iu the
Episcopal Church of America.
The American missionary, Bishop
Wiliiams, was receently found in a
Japanese boarding house, in Yedo, in
a room nine feet square, without any
furniture except a pail filled with
ashes r.nd a little coal. In a corner
were two blankets, w ith one of which
the bishop wrapped himself, while he
slept upon the other. There was the
Bishop found, sitting upon the floor,
engaged in the work of translation.
An ex-Methodist minister by the
name of Norman is said to have arriv
ed in this country as a Mohammedan
missionary. He professes to think
if Mohamedanism were only under
stood in christian countries it would
make converts rapidly. Mr Norman
avows his intention of going west and
operating somewhere in the Chicago
region, believing that they are more
progressive in that part of the count
ry than nearer the Atlantic.
The Jewish Messenger, reviewing
the recent Councils and Conventions of
different Christian bodiis, intimates
that the Jews may iii some respects
take pattern by them. The editor
says: "We wish to assist in uniting all
thc Jewish congregations of New York
city in a council, or convention, which
shall take a broader survey of the
condition and wants of bur denomina
tion; and, 'excluding mere doctrine,
promote the spiritual prosperity of the
entire body."
The momentous question as to the
right of clergymen not of the Church
of England to be called reverend, has
been suddenly settled. Bbdiop
Wordsworth having denied the right,
has caused a letter to be written to Mr
Punshon, the Wcsleyan minister well
known in this country, and the letter
was directed to tho Reverend Wm. M.
Punshon. It is therefore decided by
the highest authority, that Dissenters
may wear the title. It is now to ie
hoped that thc land will have rest on
thissul ject.
A clerical pa per published in Naples,
says: "The miracle of St Januarius w
going on favorably. Yesterday, after
eighteen minutes prayer, the blood
liquified, as it did the day before, after
having lieen exposed twenty-three
minutes. The faithful are flocking into
the diocese in great . numbers, and
their belief in our holy religion is by
no means diminished by the ravings
of a satanic sect." And this is the
enlightened nineteenth century! What
rogues these fellows arc! Does Arch
bishop Manning lielieve such lies?
A letter from India Is published in,

The Msvk Lane Express eay : With
less rain and a colder temrature, the
weather here and on the continent has
been favorable for potatoes, sonin j,

the potatoes are abundant and free

In some cases there has been an ad
vance of a shilling. The markets of
France and Belgium have slowly fol

which makes evident the reluctance of
growers to accept the present rates.
