THE DAILY EVENING TELEGRAPH PHILADELPHIA, SATURDAY, MAY 1, 1869.
OUR RELIGIOUS COLtTXVXCT. An Incident at Niagara. A pood many year ulnce a steamboat was ac customed to make dally trips between Buff.ilo and Niagara Falls. TLo nearest point to which lio could approach the mighty cataract was Chippewa creek, about ten miles distant, on the Canada side. One day there was a pleasure ex cursion, and several hundred men, women, and children went down from Buffalo. After spend ing the day In ail sorts of amusements In lojk liii? upon the falls, admiring the rainbow, pass ing under Tablo Hock and behind the falling water they gathered themselves on board the boat, towards night, to return to their home?. By some miscalculation of the englnoer, eulll clent stoum had not been generated, and when, after passing out of the creek, tho bont met the strong, rapid curront of tho river, Instead of going forward she was slowly, slowly borne backward towards the dreadful cataract. The pooplo on board, as may well be Imagined, be came Instantly alarmed. The color fled from their cheeks; they stood In speechless horror; the roar of the cataract sounded fearfully dintlnct In their cars, as slowly, slowly they woro Btill borne back towards it. At length tho engi neer bethought him of the oil with which he lubricated his machinery. He threw It into tho furnace the flames blazed up more intensely steam was generated more rapidly the wheels moved around with increased velocity: there was a pause, as tho Titan forces were contend ing for the mastcrr. A moment more, and there was an upward movement. Now slowly, slowly the boat passed agulnst the current. In a short time the point of danger was passed, and a long, heavy sigh of relief broke from the bosom of every one on board. A venerable, grcy-halrcd man was there among them. Ho lifted his hat from his head, and said, in a voice trembling with emotion, "The Lord has delivered us; great is tho name of the Lord. Let us pray." And down upon the deck kneeled the multitude, whilo the heartfelt offering of thanksgiving went up to God, who had wrought for them so great a salvation. But it did not end here. The feeling which had been awakened by the near approach of death did not, With all,, pass away when the danger was over, as is too ofton tho case. Even there, on the brink of that awful precipice, many found their Saviour. A revival followed in the church to which a large number of them belonged it was a Sabbath School excursion and many found peace in believing. One, a man of large wealth, dedicated much of it to God in the building of a church, as a memorial of his gratitude for tieing snatched from destruction, both in this life and the life to come. Thus God got unto Himself glory from the carelessness as we term it of that engineer, through which the lives of hun dreds were for the moment imperilled, ne chose this way to work out His gracious purposes towards that people. 27te Quioer. The Flaw I Inn torn. There arc people who have a preternatural faculty for detecting evil, or tho appearance of evil, in every man's character. They have a fatal scent for carrion. Their memory is like a museum I once saw at a medical college, and illustrates all the hideous distortions and mon strous growths and -revolting diseases by which humanity can bo troubled or afllicted. They think they have a wonderful knowledge of human nature. But it is a blunder to mistake the "Newgate Calendar" for a biographical dic tionary. A less offensive typo of the same tendency leads some people to find apparent satisfaction In the discovery and proclamation of the slight est defects in tho habits of good men and the conduct of public institutions. They cannot talk about the benefits conferred by a great hospital without lamenting some iuslgniflcaut blot iu its laws, and some trilling want of pru dence in its management. Speak to them about a man whose good works everybody is admiring, and they cool your ardor by regretting that he is so rough In his manner, or so smooth that his temper is so hasty, or that he is so fond of applause. They seem to hold a brief, requiring them to prove tho impossibility of human per fectiou. They detect the slightest alloy In tho pure gold of human gooduess. That there aro spots in the sun is, with them, something moro than an observed fact it takes rank with a priori and necessary truths. There are people who, if they hear an organ, find out at once which are tho poorest stops. If they listen to a great speaker, they remember nothing but some slip in tho construction of a sentence, the consistency of a metaphor, or the evolutions of an argument. Whilo their friends are admiring tho wealth and beauty of a tree whose branches are weighed down with fruit, they have discovered a solitary bough, lost in the golden allluence, on which nothing is hanging. Poor Hazlitt was sorely troubled with them in his time. "Littleness," he said, "is their ele ment, and they give a character of meanness to whatever they touch." Good Word. HVMMAUY OF JENKItAIi t'HCKCII NKW'S. METHODIST. Tin- Vri'o. Methodists becan their dcnoinina tioual existence in lStKJ. They now have 0000 members and 04 preachers. The Church Extension Society has, within a few davs oast, assisted the Methodist Episcopal church iu Augusta, Georgia, to tho extent of three thousand dollars, in purchasing a house of worship, which fully meets the wants ot tlie m detv. and establishes tho Methodist Church in that city. Bishop Simpson lias on several occasions ex urcsscd himself strongly to tho effect that the tide of drunkenness and Immorality, especially iu our great cities, cannot be stopped uutil tlie ballot is given to woman. At the Methodist Con ference iu Richmond. Iud., this sentiment was received with great cheering. Rev. A. S. Baker, D. D., President of the New York Conference of the "Methodist Church." has been elected Professor of Rhetoric in Adrian College, Michigan. There aro now foitv-four students at the Boston Methodist Theological Seminary, being an increase of twelve over last year. Dr. Lind say, late President of Genesee College, has been added to the faculty. The report of the Wesleyan Missionary So ciety says: "We have about 18,000 church members', and 00,000 attendants on public wor ship iu the Fejee Islands," one-half of tho entire 'Rcv'g'. Hines, of the Methodist Episcopal Church, organized, in 1841, tho first Sunday School ever held in Salem, the capital ot Orc"-on. It was composed entirely of Indian children, numbering about forty.. The llrst white Sunday School In that city was organized iu 1844. , CATHOLIC. Bishop McQuaid has succeeded In forcing his priest on the Catholic church iu Auburn. A hcavv lorce of police and two companies of sol diers under amis were found sulllcient to prevent an outbreak t tho church. -Bishop Duggan, of Chicago, the Roman 1 .1...

Imlrpemlcnt. Father Hyaclnthe, tho famous Carmelite friar of France, seems to bo more Protestant than some Anglican or American Protestants, lie said tho other day, In Lyons: "The day Is gone by for preaching up monastlclsm, auUc rities, retreats, and celibacy. There was a time when all that might have been ncc issarr; but at the present hour the want of France is Christian households!" Father llcekcr must bo shocked at the uttcraneo of his French brother, who hays: "We are behind Protestant nations, and especially those that dwell beyond the Atlantic and the Straits of Dover. I have trodden Eng lish soli on two occasions, and I have come to the conviction that the strength of that coun try is from the Bible." "Do you know why I'russia triumphed on the field of battle t It was because every l'rusrlun BolUier had a Bible in his cap or helmet." An cx-patleiit of n San Francisco smallpox hospital writes a description of its management to the Alia. Among othor things lie says: One of tho noblest features of the Institution, and which sheds a glow of light even in this gloomy spot, is the presence of tho Sisters of Mercy. Purer, holier, better women do not breathe tho air of heaven. One has scarcely entered tho house before somo of these good sisters offer him a glass of wine; and although the beverage warms and dicers the drooping body, yet the moral effects of this meeting, upon the threshold of a place which inspires terror in tho stoutest heart, of a pair of kindly eyes and a smiling face, does the heart moro good than all the mediclno In the world. Every patient blesses the Sisters, for all alike receive a share of their attentions; they arc truly angels of mercy, for one must be imbued with tho purest principles to thus brave all the dangers incident to ouo of the most terrible maladies which afllicts humanity. The new Catholic school-house in courso of erection at tho corner of Grove and N. Seventh streets, Jersey City, was blown down about noon on April S5. The wind, which raged like a hur ricane, scattered the timbers in all directions. The damage is estimated at about $4000. A meeting of Catholic peers, members of Parliament, and others was held on April 9 in London, to protest against the treatment of Catholic children In English workhouses, esne dally iu regard to education. The Archbishop of AN cstmlnster presided, and the principal reso lutions were movea vy Lora Ucnueiglij and -Mr. Monsell. CONGREGATIONAL. A German Congregational church was or ganized March 23, a part of the members of which were connected with a Congregational 1'iiuiiii wini;ii ccunuu iv uaim v nun ail lis inaiu members at the beginning of the war enlisted in the army. At last, ur. jsoynton lias resigned tlie pas torate of the Congregational church in Wash ington. At the annual meeting of the society, me motion to proceed to me election ot new memhera was opposed by the friends of the pas- iur, nut i.ircu ii v a majority oi two. uver .iu persons were elected members. This put the previous minority into the majority. Professor W . S. Bascom was elected President for the en suing year, and tho trustees were empowered to comer Willi tne pastor in retercuee to his salary At an ndiourned meeting thev reported that :!000 was the lowest that uc Could" accept; but me society reiuseu to agree 10 it. This com pcllod his resignation, which ho tendered, and which was accepted April 2. The resignation is to taKc place -May l. Jiis friends Iucluding, ii is said, 14! memucrs leave the church to form a second congregational Church, with him for their pastor. Satisfactory arrangements have been made in reference to the property. Independent. In several of the churches around Boston there has.been an unusual degree of interest, it ueing most maiKcd at tlie Maverick Church, East Boston, where there nro said to bo two hundred inquirers. Iho North Avenue Church. Cambridge, have been enjoving a continual out- - : . . .- c i ' l ' - - iuuriii ui uou a spirit. LUTHERAN. The. venerable Dr. G. 11. Miller. Professor of Theology in the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Hartwiek, New York, died on Monday morn ing, the !ith of April, in the triumph of faith, niter an illness of several weeks. PKEKIlYTEniAN. Since the adoption of the free-seat system in tlie First Presbyterian Church of Cineinnatl,moro money has been raised than under the pew sys tem, and the congregations have increased. So far as we can learn, it has been found generally successful where system has been observed in making collections. Rev. T. Do Witt Talmuge has occupied tho pulpit of the Central Presbyterian Church of Brooklyn for scarcely two months; but during this time the congregation has increased from a mere handful to such a crowd that the aisles as well as the pews are filled. Tho income of the church has also doubled. A United Presbyterian committee has met members of the Old and of the New School in this city, to consult about union. They adopted a platform, but without pledging themselves to it, which embraces, first, the confession of faith; second, Presbyterian church government; and, third, the duty of using psalms, and the permis sion to use hymns. The reports of increase In the churches made to the Central Presbytery of Philadelphia, at its late meeting, were gratifying. To tlie Cohock sink Church were added during the last year, by profession of faith. 75 persons; to Kensington Church, 44; to the Central Church, 44; Charles town Church, 4-i: Phienixvillu, S4; Trinity, 34; Port Richmond, 27: Spring Garden Church, 24; North Tenth Street, 2:5; Alexander Church, 19; llestonville, 18; averaging 27 members to each of the churches named. The death of the Rev. Joseph B. McKcc, a liiemuer oi tne rrcsoyicry oi itedstone, is an iioumea. lie died at ills ls residence, in West Newton, Pennsylvania, on the 19th of April, 1 Si ill. in tlie sixty-ninth year of his ago, having faithfully served Christ and the Church through a ministry continuing for many years. On u late Sabbath, fifty-one persons were added to the Third Presbyterian Church of Cin cinnati, Ohio, the Rev. W. C. Taylor, D. )., pastor. Dr. Taylor has had charge of this church for about one year. As the result of an unusual degree of religious interest in Viueland, New Jersey, duriug.tlic past winter, sixty-live were received to the First Presbyterian Church. April 4; making the church, which was organized less than fcix years ago, to consist of more than three hundred and filty members. Till last November the New School Presby terians were doing, as a Church, nothing for freediucn. Then six brethren were sent to Smith Carolina, and seventy teachers have since been commissioned. Presbyteries will soon be organized iu South Carolina' and Tennessee. Tho committee needs if HMMKI immediately. The Rev. John Jason Owen, D.'D., Trofes sir of Ancient. Languages In the College of the City of New York, died on Sunday week. Ho was of advanced age, and lias becu a professor in the college from its commencement, lie was a minister of the Presbyterian Church, and was J universally esteemed. The records of tlie Presbyterian Board of Education show that it has aided during the year which closed April 1, :i;(4 students that Is, 'theological, 108: Collegiate, 119; Academical, 107. This is forty more than last year, and moro than in tiny previous year since 1S02. Tho churches should come up with the means to meet the Increasing culls upon its treasury. REFORMED. The Rev. M. A. Rowland, a minister in tlie Methodist Church, but early trained iu tho Hei ilelbcrg Catechism, has joined the German He loinied Church. Tlie Classis of Philadelphia recently ordained him pastor of the church iu Vincent, I'a. Tlie lit formed Church Monthly (Dr. Bom hcr"cr"i) claims that in the last ten years there huU! been received, in one of tho Reformed churches of this city, more converts from Romanism to Protestantism, than perverts from Protestantism to Rome in all the Roman Catho lic churches, ol Philadelphia iu the same period. BAFTI9T. The Rcy. Tsaae Wcscott. T. I)., has become pastor of the Plymouth Church, In New York, a new interest about eight months old. ' One hundred and twenty-five have proteased conversion in the First Baptist Church, Peters burg, Va., and the meeting is progressing with unabated Interest. The First Baptist Church of New York is erecting a beautiful cliurcn, which will be onoof tho finest In the country. It is "designed, as every Baptist church ought to be, with special reference to the pulpit and baptistery. The baptistery will bo of white marble, and have half tho front made of plate glass, so that the ordinance Itself, and not merely the standing in water of the candidate and administrator, can oc seen." -Tho Baptists in Denmark have never yet re ceived the recognition of tho State as an autho rized religious bodv. This lack places them in a position of inferiority to tho Lutherans, Catho lics, Methodists, and Jews, who all alike enjoy this public recognition. The Baptists find their position a barrier to the propagation of tho truth, besides exposing incm to various incon veniences. For example, they have to pay heavy taxes on their chapel, from which the meeting-houses of tho recognized denominations aro free. The ministers of tho Baptists cannot solemnlzo marriages; they cannot register births and deaths, which must be done by a Lutheran clergyman, from whom, In case of necessity, a CCrilUCaiAS in tU lies uiimiuicii. i'l'lli:il,l' ill 111 their behalf has been made to tho ambassador of the United States, and it is hoped that favorable action may be the result. Macedonian and He- cord. Mr. Timpanv, of tho Teloogoo Mission, re ports the baptism of twelve converts in Decem ber, and states that about thirty-five are awaiting the ordinance. At iSellore six were lately I'ap tlzed, one of whom was a "Tamil man who had the priesthood of twelve villages." At Tulla Konda Paud, Brother Clough baptized sixteen iu January, and others applied for the ordinance. thirty natives were to go to ungoia lor baptism, and twenty-five from another section were await ing baptism. Brother Jowctt sends cheering news from a new field, Alloor. Sovcn have been baptized there, and Brother Jcwctt hopes these will yield three or four preachers. Four of them are tlie best scholars in the schools in Alloor and Cavoor, from twelve to fifteen years of age. All but one can read. Alloor is a promising station. lr-ISCOPAL. Dr. Osmflcld's church, in Brooklyn, opened a mission chapel three years ago. It is now self supporting, with200 members," 450 Sunday School scholars, and a sewing school of H0O girls. A second mission, ouo year old, has 350 scholars, preaching twice every Sunday, and 400 at the prayer meetings. Yet n third has developed into an independent church, with its own rector. The Church of the Iutercessor, in tills city, of which Rev. J. W. Bonlium is pastor, has adopted the free pew system. At one of the Episcopal churches of Mem phis, Tennessee, Bishop (Juintard lately called forward the candidates for continuation, when several white people presented themselves. After they had been confirmed, a colored candidate presented himself. The Bishop very plainly ex pressed his disapproval of this separation of colors, as utterly inconsistent with the spirit of tlie Gospel. The fashionable preachers of Vienna have jando, a their Lent sermons, terrible attacks, upon the newspapers. Father' Src'tiier said in the pulpit of the Dominican Church: ''Be loved brethren, I tell you read no bad news papers, no bad books, but rCftd the Bible, and you will be certain to bo converted." Another preacher simplified this advice by recommending his audience not Vo read any newspaper at all; all of them were bod. A portion of the anti-Ritualist party in Aus tralia have formed what they designate a Free Church of England, and have elected a Bishop, lie went through a form of consecration, took the oaths, and held a general ordination. Tho English Church Missionary Society lias 15,000 communicants in the Sierra Leone, and for 2000 miles of that coast, reaching to the Gaboon river. on tho equator, missionary stations have taken tiie place of slave-factories. Iu South Africa there are 20,000 communicants. JEWISH. We quoted somo time since from English papers the statement that there were 2000 bap tized Jews in London, and 100 Jews who were ordained clergymen in England. These facts were stated by Rev. C. II. Wainwright in behalf of the Jews' Society. Mr. Emanuel, a rabbi of Southsca, wrote to Mr. Wainwright, asking for the date of baptism of these converts. Mr. Wainwright did not reply. Then Professor Marks came forward, and charged Mr. Wain wright with "gross fabrication." Ho says: "DurinR the last four years 17 Polish and German Jews have appeared at Exeter JIall in the character of Christian converts, and In every Instance the convert has bettered his worldly condition by the change, and so made capital out of his Christianity. DuriiiK the same period 4 English Jews only have (one over to Christianity ; 8 of one family, Including an M. I'., have become communicants of the Church of England, and 1 Jewish girl of eighteen has been led to Koniiin Catholicism through the luiluencc of a Popish governess. As a set-on to this, I know of I Christians who have, during the sume interval, em braced Judaism 2 males and 5 females." This called out Mr. Wainwright, who could make no reply Qxcept to refer to tho Jews' Society in London ! The statements no doubt were utterly untrue; as, at least, the assertion that there were 100 such clergymen might have been easily substantiated. 'A historical account of the relation of the Jews to Chris tianity has been published this year in Germany by Dr. Kalkar, which we hope "is more reliable, iu which he states that within forty years (KhKj Jews in tlie single Prussian province of Silesia became converts to Christianity, and that there arc now 2500 Jewish converts in Berlin. Every one knows that Dr. Neander was a Jewish con vert, ns is also Dr. Cappadosc, one of the lead ing and most earnest Christians of Holland. lndtpi Hili nt.
