BY REV. THOMAS CARTER.
; On the third of July, 1775,
under the elm tree on the Bos
ton Common, GEOliGE WASIirNQ
TON'assunied command' of the
American forces. Soon after,
TitCMBiiLL, the Governor of Con
necticut wrote him: "Now be
strong and very courageous.
May the God of the armies ol
Israel givo you wisdom and for
titude 1 " Washington ' replied,
"Divine Providence, which
wisely orders the affairs of men,
will enable us to ' discharge
it (our duty) With fidelity and
success. ' ' '"
Now look ' at this illustrious
man, as he stands at the' head
of tha'armies of this young and
struggling natidnT,: Many tf his
officers v ere freethinkers. . He
established family prayers at
his headquarters, morning and
evening where his voice went
up to God, amid the panoply of
war around him. that the Gov
ernor of all things may be his
Guide andbhield. besides this
public praler was heard every
morninsr in the Army. . Lee.
who was a Williant officer, and
who dazzled and led captive
the hearts of the soldiers by his
attraction of manner, but who
was afterward noted for ineffi
ciency, insubordination, and
treasonable conduct, was Dro-
fane; Washington ordered that
there should be no profane lan
guage used throughout . the
whole encampment. Office
seekers were grasping with ra
pacity every emolument to be
obtained in the army; Wash
ington, during the whole term
of the war, refused to receive a
single dollar for his services.
though his salary was fixed by
Congress. Sufferinsr increased.
money became scarce and de
preciated, provisions scant in
consequence of the ravages of
the war, yet Washington wrote
Ins agent in Virginia, "Let the
hospitality of tho' house, with
respect to the poor be kent ud.
Let no ono go away empty,- If
tno poor are in want ol corn,
give it. Give mCney where you
think it well bestowed."
Irving, who relates these
fads, leaves no doubt of the
deep, ever-active piety of Wasii
inqton. He trusted in God, and
He gave him success in the
groat enterprise 'of founding a
nation a republic the like of
wnich the world never before
witnessed. , ' ' ( ;
"Thou' much-loved chlof I Thy nnmo lias

A Pickpocket's Discomfiture.
A woman who was riding in
Broadway omnibus, not long
since, became aware that the
"gentleman" on her right was
feeling for her pocket under her
cioaK.fr . a moment a cold
shiver passed through her. but
as , it was broad daylight, and
and ; as tlicro . were evidently
many persons in the omnibus to
whom she might apply for pro
tection, she took courage, and
recollecting that in . tho dress
she wore her pocket, had. much
to her previous annoyance, been
sewed on the wrong sido of the
skirt, concluded to sit still and
await the course of events.
After having been sufficiently
entertained 1 by the vain efforts
of her neighbor . to find the
pockety she turned 1 to him, and
said quietly, ."My pocket is on
the other side, bIt."' The man
immediately jumped up, pulled
the strap, and disappeared with
niost , amusing rapidity, tho
coolness of the lady having
been too ' much for his artistic
nerves. ' .
A sporsman ' was seated with
his servant oh a bank consoling
himself under the' fatiguo and.
disappointment of unsuccessful
pursuit.''-"Well, Pat," said he,
"this is expen8ivo, work . I've
boon' calculating that every ono
of tliesb birds has cost mb above
fifty pounds.'.' "Faith, yor hon
or," said Pat,' throwing a dash
of humor into tho sympathizing
simplicity of his reply, ''I'm
sorry for ' Ihat ' but it's lucky

Waiting Until the Last Moment.
The habit of putting off-and
deferring until the last moment
things which must be ready at
a certain time causes much poor
and mediocre work, many un
finished jobs, broken promises,
and is in fact one of tho means by
which the world is kept in con
fusion, u . ' t : . :
"Ycu shall have your boots
one' week from to-day," says a
shoemaker, four or five times
over to a customer who has
called as many times to bo dis
appointed and hear the false
hood repeated. But who ever
knew a pair of boots to be ready
when promised? If there lives
such a fortunate being his shoe
maker should receive national
patronage Not bnt that shoe

ready on time and desire to
please their customers; . but
while many of them promise
much more than they can nos
sibly finish, a large class wait
untd the day a job is promised
before beginning tho work.
Then if all the particulars are
not minutely written . down,
half the little details of the or
der are forgotten, the boots are
rushed through with long stitch
es, and are not readv whsn
called for. Shoemakers are
not alone m this practice of
milliners and tailors avail them
selves of its disadvantages, both
to patrons and themselves. :

any department of labor, who is
always prompt and punctual in
having work ready when promis
ed, stands the best kind of a
chance to make money and
When a customer has to work
day or two on a dress, after
it is sent home from the dress
maker, she is not : apt to . be
pleased with tho job, or to call
again, or recommend her friends
to do so. . ,
Good dressmakers aro called
bad ones by putting off work,
until haste makes a botch of the

Adulteration of food.
To such ' ah extent "is the
adulteration of food carried in

A Gothic Church.
I occupy- seat in a church
which is ' an' admirable one : for
reflection, but I cannot see or
hear much that ,is going on : in
wriat we HKe to call the apse.
There is a splendid stone pillar
a clustered column, right in
front of me, and I am as much
protected from the minister as
old Put's troops were from the
British behind the stone wall at
Bunker Hill. 1 1 can hear his
voice occasionally "wandering
round in the arches overhead,
and I recognize tho tones be
cause ho is a friend of mino.
and an excellent man, but what
ho is saying I can very seldom
make out. If there was any in
cense burning , I could smell it,
and that would be. something.
I rather like the smell of.ln
cense, and it has its holy asso
ciations. But there is no smell
in our churchj-except of bad air
for there is no provision for
ventilation in the splendid and
costly edifioc. . The reproduc
tion of the old Gothic is so com
plete, that tho builders even
seem to have brought over the
ancient air from one ! of the
churches of the " Middle 'Ages ;
you would declare that it. had
not been changed for: Centuries.
. ,1 am expected to fix my 'at
tention during1 the service upon
ono .man,.. who ; stands in,, the
centre of the apse, and has a
soundingboard behind him' in
order to throw his voice out of
tho. semi-circular . space (where
the alter used to stand, but now
tho soundingboard; takes the
place of the alter), and scatter
it over the congregation at large
and send it echoing up ; in' the
groined roof. I always like to
hear . a minister who is unfamil
iar with the house, and who has
a loud Voice, try to fill the edi
fice. The : more ho roars and
gives himsalf with, vehemence
to the effort, tho more . the
able noise and, hubbub. Bv
the. time he has said (to suppose
a ease), "i ho Lord is m his
holy temple." and has passed
on, to say, , "let i 'all the earth
keep, silence, the building is
repeating,; "The Lord is in his
holy temple"' from half a dozen
diiierent angles and altitudes,
rolling it, and is not keeping si
lence at all. ' A man who un
derstands it Waits 'until ' the
