Yet we find it the case always in human nature that the spiritual man is subject to frequent revul sions of feeling. Sometimes when a sin gle misfortune come* upon aman he is able to bear it but when a series ef trials come atlhis confidence departs as in the case of Elljahfandj becomes dispondent. The old prophet when he gave utterance to this lamentation must have wondered that the power of God did not exert itself more powerfully upon those people among whom he was laboring. He an ticipated the result of his work in a par ticular manner and when it did not come as he had expected it would he was ready to g*™ up the battle. He saw that the result likely to come from the power of God wan the conversion of these people and when it did not occur he was come. Mans extremities are God's opportuni ties and though we do 'not *see how He will bless us,It is His intention that we should not know. God is his own Inter pretator and if we take Him at His word the beneficial results of our trust is felt, may feel dis pondent as did Elijah God Is always with ns and if we but know this and trust accordingly we will be greatly blessed. am as ovnr We but The Temperance Folks.—T he usual afternoon temperaice meeting was held on Sunday in the McClary building on Market street, and was not so largely at tended as the proceeding meetings have been. Mr. A. A. Sargennt was called to the chair and after the singiug of "Rock of Ages," prayer was offered by Mr. Wor rell. Mr. Sergeant then made a few remarks in which he said that thus far in the ■erieB of meetings which had been held the attendants had simply enjoyed them selves. If any .good was to be done, they must throw off this lethsrgio spirit and go zealously to work. Rev. Dr. Lansing of Atlanta, Ga„ mis sionary of the Freeman's nid society was then introduced. He spoke at some ngth upon the eyila of the liqnor traffic ana as id that nothing but a firm wrestling of God's people in the cause could drive it from the country. He said that at the Conference he had heard aome very poor ideas on temperance; one dear broth er did not wanttemperanoe brought into politics, yet while the political field was bo infected with intemperance he could see no good reasons for not allowing a little total abstinence also. Enough money was spent in Wilmington alone in one year to relieve all the misery and want for twice that time. Mr. Welle stated that the people of W ilmington were getting very .indifferent on the temperance question and he thought it would be a good idea to cir culate the pledge for the reception of names. This was done. It was then decided by vote that another meeting should he held at the same hour and plaoe next eabbath after noon. After singing the doxolory the meeting adjourned. le Police Court.— The following ca ses have been heard by Mayor Whitely since Saturday evening: John Smith colored, for disorderly conduct was required to pay the costs, and furnish bail to keep tho peace.

Foreign Missionary So ciety of First Methodist Episcopal church Charles and Fayette streets, held their anniversary In the church last night, which was crowded. Revs. H. E. John son and Lewis Cole conducted the vices. Mrs. C.B. Stevens, of Wilmington, Delaware, secretary and agent of the so ciety for the Wilmington Conference, de llvered a lengthy address. She said yes terday 30,000 women were engaged in ■Dreading the light of chriatiiwlty among the millions and hundreds of millions of men and women who are darkness of ignorance and groveling the dust of superstition. There is at this time scarcely a country or a people on the globe where the missionaries of the cross have not penetrated. After a long night the dawn is breaking over the missione. Scientiste tell us the root of a plant is longest growing, then the stem, and that the leafage or fruitage is quick est. The time before Christ represents nie root growth of the church, the stem followed at the birth of Christ, and now is the time of fruitage. Fifty years ago the Sandwich Islands were the abode of ignorant barbarians. Now the Christian religion is established there, and it is said the doom of the houses in Hawaii may be left open without danger from thieves. Could this be done here,though there is doubtless far more Christian knowledge in Baltimore than in Hawaii ? In the Island of Madagascar, too, the Queen, fifty years ago, gave np idol-wor ship and the Christian religion wasaccep ser in the ted. It is calculated that it costs $11 to save a soul in some of the mission lands. Does it not cost more in Baltimore? Is It not worth more in India, China, Japan, Bul garia and wherever there are missions? The missions work not only by preachers hut by teachers, hospital workers, who vis it the sick; orphanage conductors, Ac. In some of these mission countries the native women of the higher classes never see the face of any man but a near relative. Even when sick the medical man does not see her face or touch her hand. Among this class the mission women are doing much, for they can visit and talk to them freely. A collection was taken up, and a number of persons joined the society_ Baltimore Sun.

Another Version of the Democratic Cau cus Proceedings—Mosby Encourages t he President—Why Don Cameron Wouldn't Do—Garfleld\ Not to be a Senator—The Churches and the White House, il e THB DEMOCRATIC CAUCUS. Washington, March 11_ As several versions of alleged differences in the re cent Senate democratic caucus have been put In circulation it may be proper to [ive the facts. The question was brought Oefore the cauces as to what should be the status of the democratic Senators toward Gov. Hayes as the occupant of the White House. Some of the Senators advocated that there should be a systema tic resolve to abstain from all personal intercourse with Gov. Hayes, or from any action which could be constructed to recognize him as the rightful occupant oftbe White House. This gave rise to a and excited discussion which in a profitless result. A motion was then made by one of the Senators present that the debate be limited. Judge Thurman, who had been doing a good deal of the t aiking, took um brage at this and denounced it as an at mpt to gag. The Senator who had ads the motion withdrew it, but another Senator, who had just come in, renewed it, and it was carried, to the great dis gust of Judge Thurman, who does not like to be cut off in his remarks. After this a Northern democratic Senator, in commenting on the new Southern policy indulged ia a certain stran of remarks which was construed as indicating a sus picion that the old Whigs of the Sonth would be captured by the loaves and fish es and sell out the democracy. This brought to their feet in indignant contra diction a half dozen of the Southern Sena tors who, in the ante-bellum days, were classed as old line Whigs. They resented any intimation of want of fidelity to the demorcatic party by those with whom they had been allied. Here the whole subject dropped. The caucus did not arrive at any for mal decision as to what should be the re lations between democratic Senators and the occupant of the White House, as it was thought perhaps more proper and expedient that the determination of such a question should be left to individual opinion and judgment. So far, however, with but a single Exception, their circum stances of which are such that it can scarcely he so denominated,Jno democrat ic Senator Senator has put his foot inside the portals of the White House since the fourth ofMarch. MOSBY AT THE WHITE HOUSE.; Among those who had interviews was Col. merely to war|Gov. ed in Vir. dl m with Gov. Hayes yesterday Mosby. Col. Mosby called pay his respects. During the Hayes was at one period engag the campaigns in the Valley of ginia, and he and Col. Mosby exchan ged some jocular remarks on the al ternate games of bide and seek in which they and their respective com-» manda had indulged. In conversing on the political situation Gov. Hayes remarked that the question presented to the country was whether it was to continue in a semi-state of war or to have peace, and and said that he inten ded to go in for vigorous & prosecution of peace. Col. Mosby said to him that in his belief his policy would be heartily responded to by the Southern people, that the ice was beginning to crack, a big thaw was coming, and in the course of a few weeks, under his beneficent policy, the "solid South" would dissolve and break up. Gov. Hayes, with much animation and feel ing, replied, "I hope so." DON CAMERON'S DOWNFALL. Had Gov. Hayes been disposed for personal reasons to retain Don Camer on in the cabinet he would have found such retention incompatible with the carrying out of his new Southern poli — Don Cameron took the moat de stand of any member of Gen. OT. J cidea Grant's cabinet against the slightest relaxation of the federal grip on the Mouth, and even declined to sign the modified orders sent by Gen. Grant's direction to Gen. Augur. Gov. Hayes was made acquainted with these facts, and realizing the necessity of bis cabi net being h unit in accord with him, lie withstood tho immense pressure brought to bear on him by the Camer on interest. THE PROGRAMME OF CARL SCHURZ. In conversation to-night Carl Schuiz stated that in the administration of the Interior Department he should endea^ vor to act with the utmost impartiali ty. He said that while he should aim to carry out the true principles of civil service reform he had no grudge against any of the appointees of Zach Chandler, and should make no war on them because of that fact. He said that he had always been a republican and was a republican still, and devo ted to tbe maintenance of the princi ples of that party. He anticipated no conflict with the machine politicians, as he did not purpose to run a muck with them. He has glowing anticipa tions of the results of the new Southern policy. THB VBLLOGO CONTEST. There waa a conference of republi can Senators this eveaingat theÉbbitt House to consider the course to bs pur sued in Kellogg's case. A disposition is now shown to drop the matter until ■ext session. The continued illness of £dmundB,and Cameron, of Wisconsin, Sharon's absence and the uncertain at titude of Conklieg on this question, make it very doubtful whether the Senate will agree to stay in session solely for the consideration of Kel logg's case or whether, if the question comes to the vote now, Kellogg will get his seat. If Morton sees a fair prospect of succeeding he will undoub tedly try to dispose of the matter at once, but just now he finds little to en courage him. At Washington city Saturday night the police raided the celebrated "Club House," and arrested a number of per „„„„ ■ «.j. _ . _ „ sons engaged in gambling. Among the number waa an ex-assistant secre tary of the treasury and a prominent inrt ire of Month f'aroUn. on ei-TTnited judge or south Carolina, an ex-unttea State senator and several ex-mcmbers of Congress, who were taken to the station-house Yesterday morning the parties arrested were discharged upon leaving collateral sec tors being bald In one and the players in twenty dollars each to appear as witnesses. urity,the proprie thousand dollars. LAUGHING OVKB IT. Senator Blaine dined Saturday even ing with Secretary Evarts and Secre tary Schurz. The three gentlemen had a good laugh over the reports so indus triously circulated that Mr. Blaine bad been trying to defeat their nomination before the Senate. I» the afterneon Mr. Blaine attended the reception at the White Hanse, and was received with very marked cordiality both by the President and Mrs. Hayes. HAYES AND THE OFFICE-HOL DERS. INDICATION OP SWEEPING CHANGES. [Special Despatch to the Press. Washington, March 11.— There is evident uneasiness among the promin ent office-holders in Pennsylvania whose terms will expire within the next few months, and it is extremely doubtful whether there will be any re appointments. The policy adopted by President Hayes indicates a very com plete change in the personnel of Gov ernment officers in your State, and, to eomplieate the situation, the evenly balanced numerical strength of parties in the Senate will give the Democrat much influence in the matter of cen flrmation. The elevation of Senator Wallace to the chairmanship of the Democratic caucus has immensely ad ded to his strength in his party. He will be able to wield the whole force . of the Democratic Senators for or against any nomination, and, in all probability, by an arrangement with four or five Republicans disposed with the Administration in every con tingency, will hold the balance of power so far as the Senate ia concer ned. The Democratic Senators appre ciate the situation and are disposed to co-operate with Senator Wallace. to act AN ECONOMICAL CONGRESS. The Investigating Congress Cheaper Than Its Predecessor, Washington, March 10.—It has been verified by the Appropriation Committee than in round numbers the expenditures of the|Forty-fourth Con gress have been $50,000.000 less than those of the Forty-third Congress. Not so bad for an "Investigating Con gress." « THE SPANISH GOVERNMENT SEEKING NEW CO UNSEL IN NEW YORK. Washington, March 11—1 learn that ven in Choat e the Spanish Minister here has gl structionsto retain Mr. Joseph H. as legal adviser of the Spanish Govern ment in the city of New York. Mr. Choate is a law partner of the present Secretary of State. The experience of the Spanish Government in managing Gen Grants Administration through Don Hamilton Fish, naturally prompts them to adopt this means of maintain such a system of management. I predict, however, that Mr. Choate will reject their temptation and refuse their retainer. He is not that sort of a man. THE LOUISIANA SENATORSHIP. The Party Candidates Proposed — All Qutet. New Orleans, March 10.—The Senatorial election question is absorb ing public interest here. The Demo cratic candidates mentioned for the long term are: Randall Gibson, M. C-; Governor Voorhees, B.F.
