space to day to reports of the doings at our citr
churches. No apology ought to be thought of
at any time for such use of our columns and es
pecially at such a time as the present, when re
ligious concern and awakening is now abroad
over the whole land.
The interest in this citv, as noted in an other
column by our reporters, is on the increase, and
some more adequate accomodations than any
one church can afford ought to be furnished.?
It has been suggested that Washington Hall
should be engaged for theso meetings. We
think the suggestion a good one. There would
be less restraint or rather none of that restraint
which members of one congregation feel in vi
siting a church not their own.

Although hailing from Parkersburg, we be

He narrated the published history of the case,
and intimated that its disastrous effects upon Uie

n historic warning to save our own country from
a similar fate. But, he said, John Law 'Banks
had been nllowed to spring up, ad libitum,
throughout the country, and, thank the Lord,
had broken, and taught us a lesson by our own
experieucc, which we had failed to learn by the
experience of others.

that tho Commonwealth has any lands to sell.?
It is a system which sells the right to anybody
to set up claims any where, eithor to lands which
justly belong to individuals or nre forfeited to

Religious Service* at Several of than Sunday
sehmon dv bev. wk. oodrat.
On Sunday evening lost the Rev. Mr. Dodge,
of the 2d Presbyterian Church, preached a ser
mon from a test embodying perhaps as much
as any other, the interests incident to the pres
' ent great awakening in religion throughout the
j country. It is found in Luke, 9th chop. A 26th
'?For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and
of my words, of him shall the Son of Man be
ashamed, when he shall come in h,s own glory,
and in his Fathers, and of the holy angels.
The remarks of the Rev. gentleman were
foreshadowed in a very appropriate prayer and
in the hymn commencing?
"I'm not ubiioed to awn iny Lord," kc.
! After the reading of the text the speaker
i opened his remarks by the query, as to what
there was in the person?the life, or teachings
of Christ, that that men should be ashamed ol
him. It was a fact that such a feeling was very
prevalent, and had ever been. In the earlier
ages, succeeding the Christian Era, men had
shunned the confession of his name and his pre
cents because he had died a criminal suffered
nil ignominious death. While almost all ad
mitted that he was a good man?that his doc
iUnes were pure, there was the humiliation that
qhe author of tliem had died with the thieves
upon the cross. Even in the days of' the Sawor,
he was shunned by the masses. 1 he Jewish
Rabbi and people mistrusted nnd ignored him
: because they could not reconcile his low estate
to his pretensions; because he caine as a carpen
ter?manger born?and a Nazareue?instead
of coming clad in the glories of Solomon. Ma
ny men then, too, as now, believed but would not
confess him. Nicodemus came covertly by night
to visit and take council with him. Even his
own immediate followers were not proof against
public opinion. Peter denied him and the other
disciples forsook him in his trying hour and fled;
and so to this day he is, in the eyes of the world,
"a root out of dry ground.'' Men always have
valued outward show ; they value the Diamond
for that quality?for its glitter; and when his
coteinponiries looked at the stylo of the fcavior
at his garments?at the fishermen who were Ins
attendants, they were ashamed to give counte
nance to his teachings. Now, at this day, his
doctrines meet with the same repulse which
once was fashionable against his person. be
cause, in both cases, humiliation was necessary.
Humiliation was the lirst step to be a Christian
?and men driaded that step. Doubtless there
were persons present to-night who would he
ashamed to let people think they were devo
tional. The llev. gentleman related feelings ol
the kind which had once obtained in his own
heart when in the presence of religion.
Men are not nshained to be known as blas
phemers?to be heard in the act; nor arc many
in high and low places ashamed to concoct in
iquity?lay immoral schemes; yet are they
ashamed to be found among the people of God,
or patronizing sacred things. Even those who
went to the closet?who were praying people,
very often started as if ashamed if a noise was
heard of some one approaching. Why was this*
Men did not start when they were standing in
the way of sinners. Many of them gloried in
sin. lie had known cases of persons who glo
ried in the invention of curious?newfangled
and hideous oaths; men who brmreen
boasted how olleii incy Iidd been intoxicated,
and how much liquor they could stand.
The cause of all this was found in tho de
pravity of the human heart
The speaker thought he discovered here and
there in his audience those upon whom con
science had been at work. Twas now the lime
when the influence of religion was being felt
everywhere. There was a great revival through
out the land. The present awakening was not
a mere excitement, as that word was generally
understood. 11' wa-> true there \\ as excitement
there was need for it?no soul could be conver
ted to God without being first excited at its
Why should not men turn nwny from then
sins. Twas no disgrace for the etiiid to repent
and ask pardon of its parent. Neither was it
for us to do so, when we had trespassed against
propriety. How then could it be thought a
shame for sinners to turn to tiod? Is it a shame
to be good, to be honest, sober, moral, religiyu.-?
Was it a shame to live purely, uprightly? Was
it a shame to try to t\ in heaven with all its bliss?
Was it n shame lo try to escape hell and its
companionship with devils and damned* Surely
Turning away from this view of the question,
the speaker alluded to the great counterpart
of all these notions of shame and humilia
tion which would obtain at tho Second Advent.
Then Christ will coine clad in the power, pouip,
and splendor of heaven: then would these no
tions of ours ahuut high and low, rich and poor,
great and humble, all be reversed. The Mille
nium would he a great rertrwil of earthly usa
ges. Then would be addressed to those who
had refused tho overtures of grace, those words
to him (the speaker,) the most terri e in the
"Hecauso I have called and ye rcfu?-1: I have
nlrctcbed out uiy hand, and no man n g.irded:
"to have set at nought all my con .-el, and
would none of my reproof: I will also laugh at
your calamity, i will mock when y mir fear
?'When your fear comeih ns deso'.aiion, and
your destruction roinctb on a whirlwind; when
distress and anguish i-ometh upon yo."
The speaker, in conclusion, considered those
? mercies of pardon and redemption offered
i through intervention of tho S-ivior and the in
ducements which the Gospel held out. Religion
: was beautiful and attractive. It embraced the
beauties and purities of life. There w ere no
such moi als elsewhere. There was not a throne,
nor a place, nor a distinction, that held out such
lasting attractions?such promises, as the pro
fession of a Christian. Ilow, then, nnd why,
should men be ashamed?
Ashamed of Jesus! Ye* I raiy.
When I've do pullt to wash away.
No tears to wj|?e?no good to crave.
No fear* to quell, no soul to nve.
Till then?nor is my boasting rain?
Till then, 1 boast a Savior slain;
And O may this my glorr be.
That Christ Is not ashamed of me.
The speaker, before the concluding exorcises,
announced the order of religious exorcises during
the week, at the different churches, as also the
coming celebration of the Lord's Supper at his
own church, next Sunday two weeks.
1st Pkekbttekian Cucitcn.
Rev. Dr. Weed of the 1st Presbyterian Church
preached a powerful and impressive sermon in
the evening to a large congregation. His text
was from Genesis Cc 3v?"My spirit shall not
always strive with roan."
Every eye seemed fastened on the preacher
? while he described in touching language the
gradual and final departure of the spirits stri
ving, leaving the soul bereft ol power to receive
the impress of the means of grace, applying the
j subject in general to the present great and ua
| precedented outpouring of the spirit over the
; land, and most affectionately urging every one to
make sure of their salvation in such a favored
? season as the present. There is much interest

In the basement of jhis church, yesterday

Indeed, the room was filled with about all that it
would seat comfortably, allowing for chairs
which had been brought in. The services con
sisted of prayers and songs. Many fervent

the'influence seemed highly indicative of the
best results. There wants, we think, but more

: SERMON OF ItEV. J. E. WILSON, FOURTH STREET
The pulpit of Rev. J. E. Wilson was filled
i on Sunday forenoon by a minster from Nlissis
In the evening Mr. Wilson preached from the
! Epistle to the Hebrews, 18th chap., 5th verse,
"I will never leave thee nor forsake thee. '
The Rev. gentleman went on to show, first,
that Christ was as naturally present to His
people now, as when on eaith incarnate. Sec
ond, that He has not altered his dispositions to
wards them. Third, the speaker dwelt upon
the offices of Chrirt as an Intercessor, particu
larly : and fourthly and finally, that lie is with
his people in the hour of death, concluding thus
"And when relentless death hurls his poisoned
javelin at thy naked heart. He is near enough to
take the sting away. The very shadow of death
proves that there must be a great light some
where not far off. And up yonder every heart
pulsates, every song warbles, every foot is mu
sical with His love. What supported you, O!
christian, in those heavy trials and crosses??
Something whispered in my ear, "I will never
leave thee nor forsake thoc." And, O ! ye re
deemed sinners from earth, what made you so
happy, when the cold Jordan dashed your pil
grim feet? The same voice cheered me, "I will
never leave thee." This is the life of the New
Song perpetuated and reverberated forever:
For he, who hears that thrilling strain,
Will want no other song again.
ST. MATIIEw'lJ CHl'HCU, (EPISCOPALIAN.)
In the forenoon Rev. Mr. Perkins preached a
sermon intended to inaugurate the ceremonies
incident to Passion Week?or the cOmemora
tion of the antecedent circumstances an3 cruci
fixion of Christ. His text was from the Gospel
according to Mathew; 21st chap, and 10th verse,
"And when ho was come into Jerusalem, all
the city was amazed, saying, who is this?"
The sermon of Mr. Perkins was of a narrative
kind, and as such, hardly susceptible of digest,
or the piece-incal-sketching which our limited
spaco demands, lie commenced by observing
that in the comemorative celebrations of the
church, (Episcopalian,) this day is the first day
of the week called Passion Week, because of its
being the week in which arc grouped together
the important events immediately preceding the
crucifixion of our Saviour: viz: His entry into
Jerusalem, the city where all these solemn and
eventful circumstances transpired?his celebra
tion of the Passover?his agonizing in the Gar
den of Gesthemane?his betrayal into the
hands of his enemies by one of the twelve?his
mock trial?his sentence?his being led away
to crucifixion, and finally tho crowning art, by
which the work was finished. Every day that
follows, of which this is tho fii*<, teems with
circumstances of deep interest, which will en
gage our attentions from this on through the
week, until the grand and awful but blessed
consummation is reached.
The Rev. speaker then went on to narrate
in detail, the incidents attendant upon the Sav
iour's starting for Jericho?how the train of his
followers increased as he approached the gates of
Jerusalem, where men, women and children set
up the salutations which excited the inclination
and jealousy of the chief priests and scribes.
Yesterday morning at 1-2 past 0 services were
held Jin the same church?including simply
reading, singing and praying. Last evening
services were again held at which Mr. Perkins
set forth in a lecture tho ideas and events which
these series (each, day) *ere intended to com
memorate. Great interest seemed to obtain in
these morning and evening meetings. We were
surprised especially in the morning, to find so
respectable a meeting present.
North Street M. E. Church.
Rev. Mr. Regar preached on Sunday to a large
congregation. On Sunday eveningit was under

the congregation assembled, a strange form as
cended the pulpit, took a text and commenced the
delivery of a powerful sermon. Not one of the

i was listened to with marked attention not un

The Latest News by yesterday'ti mails, is
that there is some danger of Lecoinpton
passing the House. A special despatch to the
N. Y. Tribune says :
The impracability of a few Republican mem
bers who don't want to vote for Crittenden's
amendment, renders the the defeat of Lecoinpton
very doubtful. The prospect to-day is far from
encouraging. As the vote is, however, postpon
ed till Thursday, tho present difficulties may be
overcome by that time.
And one to the N. Y. Times reads that
It is the general understanding among the
members of the House that the vote will he tak
en on the Kansas question on thursday next.?
It is believed by the opponents of the bill that
they will be seven majority in favor of the prop
osition made by Mr. Crittenden in the Senate,
but there is reason to fear that certain three Re
publicans will not vote for tho bill if even thus
amended. Efforts are making to overcome their
objections. On the other hand, the Lecompton
; itcs boast confidently that certain men who pro
? less opposition have already sold out, and intend
tn cheat their friends.

; Passage of Sundry Bill* granting aid to the
j lines of Improvement-?The feeling against

f Richmond, March 2G.
The various bills granting appropriations to
! Works of Internal Improvement, which were
j passed by the House on Saturday and Monday,
according to piavious appointment of the Sen
ate, came up for action in the latter body on
Wednesday. The Senate was fully acquainted
with the merits of most of the bills, both froin
information privately received, and froin ample
discussion which tho entire subject of Internal
Improvement had in tho House, consequently
there were no elaborate speeches, and but few
explanations of individual positions, but an
immediate action seemed to be spontaneously
and uanitnously agreed upon.
The Hrst bill to be acted upon was the Orange
and Alexandria, granting $400,000, in order to
make an extension to Lynchburg. This bill
failed by one vote of a constitutional majority.
The friends of improvements immediately per
ceived that for the present their fate was sealed,
as it was impossible to cosutnaiid a sufficient
vote on that day, and many almost despaired of
the accomplishment of the grand objects for
which the extra session had been called, and
which it had been thought the action of the
House had secured. However, the bills were
rapidly put tipon their passage, defeated, the
votes reconsidered, and bills laid upon the
table to bo culled up on Thursday, their
friends making no further effort after the re
jection of the first bill. On Thursday, as
oil the duy before, the Orangu & Alexandria
bill had precedence over the others, and a
vote being taken it passed, receiving exactly
the requisite number of votes. The other bills
passed iu rapid succession. Tho most intense
anxiety prevailed among their friends while the
vote upon the first of the bills was progressing,
from the apprehension lest they could not obtain
a sufficiency of votes, the number was finally
secured by the vote of Col. French, the Senator
from Mercer, who previously had been neutral,
neither voting pro or con. Only two of the
bills had more votes than were necessary to pass
thein, viz: those relating to the Norfolk & Pe
tersburg, and Manassas Clap roads, each of which
received 28 votes.
In addition to the House bills, the Senate has
passed one authorizing tho Board of Public
Works to pay to the Fredericksburg and Uor
donsville road $96,000, which is an unpaid res
idue of on amount appropriated three years ago.
Also it bill increasing tho capital stock of the
> irgiuia Central Railroad Company in the sum
of $200,000. With the passage of these bills,
the great Irternal Iinproxeinent prgraminc of
Virginia is nearly completed; there only now
remains for Virginia to be the leading State of
the Union, in commercial and political power, as
sho now is in moral anil social influence, is to
perfect and execute a scheme for tho completion
of her James River canal, to mako additional
appropriations for the Central road until it is
carried to tho Ohio river, and to establish a
steam connection with Europe, while her other
works, completed and in progress, will contrib
ute much to the local and sectional prosperity,
and to some extent to State advantage. Until
Virginia has completed those three schemes,
compared with which nil else is nothing to her,
she will never attain that Imperial Acme fur
which nature seems tc have created her.
A substitute rnr tl.e "Canal Conr.r.icn
scheme, offered by Mr. Stuart, which authorises
the Company to borrow $2,500,000, passed the
Senate on Wednesday; the original conversion
bill also passed the Senate but was defeated in
the House, and it is questionable whether the
substitute will pass the latter body. Mr. Stu
art's proposition contains much to commend it,
there being nothing extravagant or impractica
ble in its present form; tho loan solicited will
enable the compnny to extend the canal to the
coal region, and doubtless the coal freight alone
will, without difficulty, extinguish the loan.
i-n'10 ?ous? Delegates on Tuesday passed a
bill so nmending the charter of the Winchester
and Potomac Railroad Company as to allow
an extension of their road to Strashurg.?
1 liis bill is now before the Senate, and will
be defeated I hope and believe. It is evidently
a scheme lor the benefit of Baltimore, and its
passage by the House is amazing. Tho feeling
against Baltimore with many members of the
Legislature, is bitterly hostile, while I do not
think the \\ heeling representatives are over
flowing with lo.e for that city; suspicion and
distrust are feelings common to representatives
of all sections of tho State towards Baltimore.
Mr. Fntintluroy, the delegate from Winchester,
and patron of this bill, in reply to an assertion
that this extension would favor Baltimore, said
in substance, that so great was his hostility to
that city on account of its bloodshed and mob
government, that he would not regret "to see it
swept from the earth by tho indignant fire of
Heaven, as were the iniquitous cities of the
plain. Whatever Mr. Fnuntleroy's feelings
inav be towards Baltimore, many equally com
petent to judge of the effects of this extension.
l Tm . hiuiyand if their views are correrl
the bill should fail. '
A resolution has boon introduced in the Sen
ate, requiring inerchunts to furnish commission
ers or revenue a list or their goods, foreign and
domestic; the furnishing of flic list to be one or
the conditions of obtaining u license. The res
olution lies over for the present.
