But, do the owuera look out for themselves. Let's see. While our bark, the (Jannet, is ly ing at the mercy of the winds.

Where is my umbrella? I must go over to the exchange, added the Bai lie One moment, said XcQoill, interrupt ing The revenue doctor, Fareface called ye.»t r -rday after you were gone. He says yon promised a five pound subscription for school* for the freed slaves. Am Ito give it to him ? Pshaw ' bother bun and the slaves to gether; tb»*ir freedom has ruined every estate iu the West Indies. I declare, ministers and woin»n are haith alike; they are everlastingly botching up some scheme or another ti waste siller, answered the Bailie, adding in a lower tone, not without a touch of humor: You can let him have it though. I Re lieve they ar* going to propo.e me for an elder a.t the nest meeting «»' the kirk session, so 'he subscription ye sec is a bit teiit o' my sufficiency. Heigho! the ministry of wealth. But heaven all bountiful ever, brought the (ianuet and her exhausted crew safe in o port. About • fort night after her arrival something akin to the following appeared in the Week, hj A<bertiser: Last Sabath day three of the crew of the Gdunet bark—which we report ed, some two weeks ago as arriving jury rigged and her crew in a starved condition, their provisions having given out--well on to half seas over *'wi' the barley tree"—staggered into tho Ilev, Dr Parker's church, and seated themselves in a prominent pew. They behaved tolerably well until the commencement of the sermon, when something tickled their fansv, ana lliey laughed out'ight. Elder Boldie went to them, and peremptoriy order ed them to leave the church, an order which tbey obeyed with as much ala crity ax if on board of ship. It ap peared, however, that they had each deposited a penny piece in the collec* tin plute at tho door on entering, and they evidently reasoned that, deprived of tt:e sermon, they were being defraud ed of their money. The first sailor, therefore, as bo passed the plate on going out picks out his ' penny; the second did the same, but the third, a little more modest, perhaps, did not pick up his, for which bis two ship* mates so severely chaffed him outside, that back be went for bis money. This being perceived by Suuffy Jamie, tbe old doorkeeper, he instantly snatched up the plate and ran up the main aisle towards the vestry door, at the back of tho pulpit, followed by Jack shouting: 'Heave to, there, you old landlubber, till I get my shot. I'm bio wed if you'll bave it for nothing,' The sailer overhauled bim by the pul pit stairs, took bis penny out of tbo plat" and departed. There was natur ally considerable excitement in the kirk, and several started to their feet to seize the intruder; but the minister, who has a warm heart towards our set bovs, cautioned them to keep still, say ing: 'We are nil of us responsible tor the condition of these men, aud, per haps on the great day of account, those who wallow in the mire of sensu ality. clothed in purple and fine linen, may find reason to envy those whose nntoward lot in this lite condemned them to seek enjoyment iu a roll in the gutter.
