J rota the fjondon Tim, June 80. The announcement In our Impression of Wednes day That I :an Stanley Intended to make "Charles Dickens and His Works'' the subject of Ills surmou In Westminster Abbey, on Sunday, brought toge ther, as might be expected, a very large congregation to the afternoon service, yes terday, and some time before 3 o'clocK the choir and transepts were tilled to overflowing, aa well as the seat tu the sacrarimn. Tne service which was Fan-ant, in U minor), hail nothing re markable about it. At the end of the Third Collect, the Dean was conducted to the pulpit, and too Ins text from the gospel of the day, ttie parable of thd rich man and Lazarus, whieu, he observed, was most appropriate to the occasion, and chimed in ad mirably with the service performed within those walls on Tuesday the funeral of "that gifted being who for years had delighted and mstruced the generation to which he belonged.'' He showed that the story of Dives and l.-tz.irus lormed something more than an ordinary "paraole," and that, In spite ol both the one aud yie ottier being "as purely Imaginary beinps as 'Hamlet' and 'Shylock,' " it was a "tale or r.fal Hie, so real ttiat we can hardly believe It to be licttou, aud not au actual hiBtory." The Bible, then, urged tue preacher, sanctions this mode or teaching, which has been in a special Benso God's gilt to our own age. "In various ages," he coutiuued, "tills gift has assumed various forms, the divine flame of poetry, tht far-reaching page of science, the searching analysis of philosophy, the glorious page of history, the stirring el qaoiico of pitacher or orator, the grave address of moralist or divine all these we have had in ages past, anil to Borne extent we have them still ; but no age has de veloped like this the gilt of speaking in parables, of teaching by action." "Poetry," he coutiuued, "may kindle a loftier lire, the drama may rive' atten tion mora firmly, science may open a wider norizoQ, ami philosophy may touch a deeper spring, but m works aie sj peLetrating'or so persuative, euter so many houses, or attract so many readers, as tnj ro mance or novel ol modern tunes' Aud lu proportion as the good novel is the best, so is tlie bad novel the worst, of instructors; out the work or the Hiiecessful novelist, If pure in style, elevating In thought and true In its sentiment, is trie best of blessings to the Christian home, which the bad wtlter would debase and dctlle. In the wrltijg of Charles Dickens It is clearly suown that "It is possi ble to move both old aud young to laughter witnout the use of a single expression which could detlle the purest or khock the most sensitive;" he taught a les son to the world that It is posslnle to jest without the introduction of depraving scenes or the use of unseemly and filthy jokes. ",S thought and so wrote not only the gemal and loving humorist whom we mourn, but Walter Scott, and Jane Austen, and Elizabeth Haskell, aud William Thackeray." Hut, he urged, there was something eveti higher thau this to be learned In the writings of Charles Dickens, and which It was well to speak of In the house of (iod and beside that new-made grave. "In tnut loug series of stirring tales, now closed, there was a pal pably serious truth might he not say a Christian anil Evangelical truth? of which we all needed much to be reminded, and of which in his own way lie was the special teacher. In spite of tne Oriental imagery wUh which it Is sur rounded, the Gospel tells us, and the de parted writer did but reecho the truth, that the rich man and Lazarus lived very near and close to each other; he showed us, in his own diamaiic aud sympathetic manner, how dose that lesson lay at the gates of the upper and walthier classes of modern Knglish society lu this a tie of wide-spread civilization aud luxury. Tlie I'oor Man had but one name given to hlJi In the parable, but In the wrltlngB of Chales Dickens he i ti it nanina atari ornrn muliv fnino niinr coming to us in the type of the forlorn outcast, now in tnat or me worKitouse cuiiu struggling towards the good amid an atmosphere of cruelty, injustice, and vice. "We have need, then," he coutiuued, 'of such a teacher to remind us of oae great les son of lire, the duty of sympathy with the poor and the weak, with the absent aud with those who cannot speak for themseves. And It Is localise this susceptibility, this gift of sympathy Is no rare, that we ought to value It highly where we . meet It, and to reckon It as a gift from Uod." "As the rich man was made to see and to feel Liizarus at his gate, so our departed Instructor taught us to realize aa brought Into very near contract with our selves the Hollering inmates of the workhouse, the neglected children In the dens and dark corners or the streets of our great cities, the starved and ill-used boy In remote schools far from the ob servation of the world at large. All of these must have felt that a new ray of sunshine was poured by liis wrl lngs on their dark existence, aud a new Interest awakened outside In their forlorn ana desolate lot. In him aa unknown frleud pleaded their cause with a voice which rang thrjugh the palaces of the rich and great, as well as through the cottages of the poor; aud by him these gaunt figures aul atrange faces, though In a slightly exag gerated form, were made to stand and speak face to face with those who up to the time had doubted their existence." And, further, the same falthftl band which thus depicted the sufferings of the poor man, drew also pictures of that unselfish kiudueia, that kindly patience, that tender thoughtfulnesa, that sympathy for the weak and nelp less which often underlie a rougn exterior. "When the little work-noose boy wms bis way, pure and undented, through the mazes of wickedness Into .a happy home, when the little orphan girl brings thoughts of Heaven Into the hearts ol all around .her, and as if tae very gift of tiod to those whoae desolate lite she cheere, there Is a lesson taught which none can read aid learn without being the bolter for it. In fact, be labored to tell us the old, old story, that even la the very worst and most hardened of mankind, there la H4. me?oit and tender point, and, what is more, a soul worth being touched and reached and rescued and regenerated, lie helped to blot out the hard line which too otLen severs class from class, and made Eusllshman feel more as one family Uiaa they had felt beiore. Therefore It was felt that he had not lived In vain, or been laid in vain here In this sacred house, which is the home and the heart of tbe Eugjifch nation." The Dean tnen rea4 the following extract from Mr. IHckena' will, dated May 12, 1809, which will be new to the public, and will be read with a Uirlll of Interest and sattaf action: "I direct that 1117 Dittos be inaoabed ia plain Enjrli.h Utters on mf tomb 1 ojoin my trienda 00 no aovoual t make rue toe aubjeot of any moauuteut, memorial, or Lea itiiuuDiui whatever.

I coumnl my aoul to tbe mercy of God. through our Lord and Kaviuur Jesus Uhrkt. and I eiourt my dear chixirea to try to guide themselves by the teauliiDgs of the New Testament in it broad spirit, and to put no taith in any man' narrow construe lion ot ii let ter." "In that simple but sufficient faitu," concluded tne Dean, "CuarLs Dickens livetl and died In tnat faith be would have you all live and die also ; aud If sf of you hive Icarot from bis works tbe eternal value 01 generosity, puntr.ijDclneas, and uoeUiatoueae, and to va"ay toein out in acitun, tboae aietlia best 'Monuments, meiv orials. and teotiiuutiials' which you, his fuiiow countryuioa, van raise to bis memory." The sermon was listened to with br eat hi eg atten tion by that portion of the congregation who, for tunately, ad seats In tne Sacranum and under the Lectern, but very little of it could have reached the naas of the congregation In the chUr and transepts. The Dean was laboring under a severe eoH, ana It was evidently only with the greatest difficulty that Ise was able to deliver bis sermon at alt. The sermon was followed by Handel's well-known and magaia ticeat anthem from the book of Job, chapter twenty-, nine, "When the ear heard me, then It blexned me: and when the eye saw me, It gave witness uuto me.'' Among the congregation prese.ut were several mem bers of both Houses of 1'arllament, some dignitaries of the Church, and a boat of liierarr celebrities, aoiioug whuiu Air.

A proposal has been started at Rochester proba bly consequent upon the reported early sale of the Oadshlll hotiBe and grontids-baving for Its object the purchase and preservation of Charles Dickens' favorite abiding place as a national memento of this popular author. It is suggested that the house should be retained by Mr. Dickens' family for a term, to be named by themselves, at the explratlen of which, with their consent, the place will n-rge in trustees. Dickens passed the morning aud after noon ef his laHt day on earth In the chalet, presented to him by a few Swiss admirers two years since, which is erected in the Bhrubbery opposite his resi dence, and approached by a tunnel underneath the turnpike road. The chalet, embosomed In the foliage of some very fine trees, stands upon an emi nence commanding a magnificent view of the mouth of the Thames and the opposite coast of Essex. It was a favorite retreat of Dickens. Dickens n a Perleairlnn. From the Cheltenham (Eng.) Gazette, June 16. At one time of his life Mr. Dickeuswas a great pedestrian. That he was a great walker was borno witness to by mnch that he wrote. In the wander liifcs 6f Little Nelly and her grandfather Mr. Dickens' ovtu experiences crop op. The 'anh. and Judy men and the scene in the inn are manifestly photo graphs of people the author had met and or places where he had been. The same maybe said of the account or David Copperfleld 8 journey on foot from London to Keut, Bud the inimitable paper oh Tiamps," which we are never tired or reading, could have been written by no man who had not had opportunities or closely studying the bagging fraternity, their habits, and modes or expression. Indeed, scattered through his works are scenes and allusions that bespeak the practice or pedestrtanism, If not or humbler modes or travelling. It Is hard to relieve that the description or the journey in tnat night wagon in "The Did Curiosity Shop, "and the morning picture, the passengers cheerless, cold, ugly, and discontented, with three months' growth or hair in one nlgl.t, was not a realistic sketch that grew out of ."Mr. Dickens' own personal experience. Illft Name In Krance. From the LomUm Aisico, June 21. M. Louis Diane contributes an article on Dickens tothel'aiis Jiappel, in which he specially refers to the light estimation In which cosmopolitan France holds her national celebrities, and contrasts it with the patriotic admiration Englishmen display for their fellow-eouutrymen who have become distin guished. Citing a criticism on diaries Dickens from a London paper, in which expression Is given to this admiration, he says that, although other papers have spoken in more solier language, the general tone has been marked by the saaie exagge ration. M. Louis Blanc considers "that Mr. Dickens was a humorist with less originality than Sliak ppesre, less sensibility than Cervantes, lcssldepth than Jean Paul, and less bonhomie than Sterne. lie did not, M. Louis Diane thinks, regard the vices he describes quite seriously enough, ane weakened the moral effect of his pictures by the comic coloring given to them. The influence or his novels was, however, highly salutary on the whole, aid In his waitings he always respected hlmseir and respected his readers, while the sanctity or the domestic hearth never had a more reverential painter or a more clinrniing apostle.'' THE HE I) STOCKINGS AT HOME. Results of lb Tour IlnntlNom Acknowledge inent of I heir One Detent. ihe Cincinnati Times of the iJOth ult. say.?: A motley and incongruous assembly of humanity gathered about tbe Plum street depot last even ing, and when the seething;, snorting iron horse screeched bis arrival, there arose on the heated night air Bhiill snouts of welcome from the throats of hundreds of urchins, mercifully tem pered w ith the basso hurras of the more matured patrons and friends of tbe national game. The crowd and tbe shouts were incidental to the arrival homo of tbe famous Cincinnati base ball club more generally known as the tied Stockings from their Eastern tour. Their ap pearance seemed to indicate the skirmish had been pretty warm, but that they had accom plished their work. George Wright. Allison, and McVcy were not in tbe best possible condi tion, while the remainder of the party were su tiering from fatigue. In reply to the welcoming remarks of Mr. Bonte, President Champion referred to the vic tory of the Atlantics, aud geueiously said: The umpiring was as fair as I have ever seen anv where, and we have not the least complaint to make in that respect about any Eastern city we visited. When we won a game, we tried to do it with the ball and the bat, and not by any technicality, and when we lost, we lost In the same way, fairly and squarely. In the game which we lost, we were met and fairly benteu In every respect. The Atlantics played that day as fine a game as could be played, and deserve the credit of being the first to beat the Ked Stockings. The following arc the individual scores: . o. R. B. Th. G.

Moore, a merchant, In Middle town, had a bearing; before Esquire Silver this morn log on a charge of assault and battery on a colored woman. Tbe prisoner admitted tbe assault, which took plaee near the railroad plat form at Middle town, on June 20, and ofered in extenuation of his offence the following ex planation: Tbe colored woman was employed as a servant In Moore's bouse. On the Saturday previous to tbe asfault, Mrs. Moore went into the kitchen and gave the woman some directions, to which the replied that she knew her own business and that the kitchen was no place for her mU trees. luceuced at this answer, Mrs. Moore directed &e woman, to patfc up ftfr4 lcayt tU hQltf im mediately. This order was promptly complied with, and the woman loft. On tbe day of the assault Moore met the woman near the platform, and asked ber why she had left without cleaning np some tubs, etc. She replied that Mrs. Moore told her to leave right off, and she did so. Ibis, Moore says, Ire considered another insult, and he thereupon commenced an assault on the woman with a cowhide, striking ber over tbe face, shoulders, and back, and beating her very severely.' This, be it remembered, is substantially the prisoner's own version of the affair. Esquire Silver, not recognizing this as tbe legal way of dealing with refractory servants, held Moore to ball In the sum of tllKX) for his appearance at court. iMbiiington Commercial, yesterday. RAILWAY COLLISION. An I'ire nod a Construction Train Come Toarihrr on the Pan Handle KaJIroaa No body Hurt. The express train on the Fittsbnrg, Cincin nati, and St. Louis Railway, due here at mid night Wednesday, ran into a construction train between Collier and Dinemore stations, resulting in the wrecking of both trains and the sorious damaging of a bridge. A freight train had run on a siding to allow the express to pass, and in doing to shoved some construction cars loaded with brick out upon the main track. The brakes not being tight, aud there being a down grade, these cars ran off at a high rate of speed. Tlie engine of the freight started after them, but did not overtake them in time. The cars had reached a small covered bridge east of Dins more, when the express came along at usual fpeed and ran into them. Tbe locomotive and several cars of tbe express were considerably damaged, while the construction cars were demolished and the bricks scattered about in all directions. Tbe bridge was also much damaged. There were a large number of passengers on the train, but none of them were injured. Pi'tsburg Commercial, yesterday. LB C AX. irfTELLIODIMCH. Sad Kesult of a Strike. Court of Quarter Sowions Judge Lndlow. Yesterday in this Court a young cooper, named William Atrldge, was convicted of arson In setting fire to the Old "Cooper Shop Refreshment Saloon," on the night of June 11. He was at that time on a strike for higher wages, and his employer was sleep ing in the house tired. This Is quite a lamentable case, for the young man was a good mechanic, much respected by his acquaintances, and had a very fair chance or success; besides he had a young wife and one child, who by his roily are left without any visible means of support. In sentencing him Judge Ludlow remarked that it was a sad aflair, and If he could substitute anything for the law, he would gladly do so ; but at the aaino time the prisoner's crime was a monstrous one, and must be duntshed accordingly. It must be known in the community that no class or combination or men was stronger than the law. This case had grown out or a coopers' strike. In regard to this it was well for every workingman to under stand that they had the right to rescrt to any legal means for their own protection in business, out when they had recourse to arson, riot, or other criminal demonstrations, they violated Die law and must standto take the consequences. This lire might not only have worked the striker's vengeance bv burning down a particular building, but might have destroyed many others in that popu lous locality, and burned to death hundreds of sleeping men, women, and children. Thererore, while he was to he pitied his otl'ense called for punishment of an exemplary character. The sen tence was an imprisonment of six years in the East ern Penitentiary. TheNnale Homicide. Court of Oycrer and, Terminer Judges Ludlow and Faxoiu Thomas Dill (colored), who was convicted of man slaughter in killing the German Baker, John G. Naiile, in Letltla street, in March last, was sentenced to the Eastern Penitentiary for eight years. aFHVAIVCIS Atl CO.TIMKUCE ETKimro TKXJCGBaPB OrnoaU Saturday, July 3, 1870. I The drain of currency to the West has mate rially fallen- off during the past few days, but lare amounts have been drawn from the banks to meet the usual July payments which are now in progress, bo that tbe money current is in pretty active motion. At those periods there is always more or less activity in the money mar ket, and the present period will be no exception to the rule. The banks to-day are pretty busy settling up old contracts and forming new, and for a week or more there will be less than the usual amount of dullness. No scarcity of cur rency, however, is possible at this period of universal business apathy, but it is quite oroba- ble that money will be accessible . at lower figures than are now current.
