dent mentions the probable expedi
ency of returning to tho old way,
because some dislike the one service
system for the Sabbath. We would
like to ask, what good a second ser
mon does those who are not present
to hear it T Also, if there it a re
turn, if those strenuous for it will
always be present to hear both ser-
mous, and at the prayer-meeting,
unless they have a reason which
would bo deemed sufficient to ex
cuse the pastor in the same circum
stances from attendance 7 Will
they agree to treasure up and digest
both sermons, to make them a coll
iding stimulus to belter living!
Is it justifiable to burden ministers
so heavily, for the simple conveni
ence of the people, to accommodate
alt-day church-goers, some per-
mg to attend iu the morning and
others in the afternoon f
These queries have sugrjrestetl
themselves, for the fact sometimes
comes out, that some most clamor
ous for tiro sermons, seem not to be
over and above particular about
hearing ou the average one a Sab
bath, nor any too earnest to prac-
ico the counsels of that. We pre
sume, however, this may not be
true of any of the cood people of
Lyme.- querist.

Orpokd. Your '-Clerlcus" cor
respondent makes some singular
questions iu regard to the Taberna
cle, as exemplified by beautiful
drawings at our last monthly Sun
day School concert. In regard to
the first question our leuder said
'they stole the gold", I objocted to
"stole" for they only received pay
in a certain sense, Ex. 3 : 22.
2d question It is hard to tell how
manv skins it took to cover the Tab-
onittcle, ueither does it matter, suf
fice it to say, the Lord was at me
head of affairs. "They took unto
them such things as they required",
fix. 12: 36 (in kind or quantity; ue
fore thev left Eevpt.
3d question 1 should answer the
first part of tho question, "ine peo
pie brought much more than enough
for the service of the work until
thev were restrained from bringing"
Ex. 30 : 5. and the Inst part of the
question, by saying, "Them hath ho
tilled with wisdom ot neanio worn
all manner of work, of the engrav.
or and of the cunning workman and
of the embroiderer, in blue, purple
and scarlet, and in fine linen aud of
the weaver, even or them tuui uo
any work, or of those that devise
cunning work," Ex. 35 : 35.
4t,h nuestion The whole Taberna
cle was only 45x15 and the Holy of
Ilolys was only a small part or mat,
not very large. But the "Occasion"
for the structure "being so large,"
was "Look that thou make them af
ter the pattern which was shown
them in the Mount," Ex.25: 40.
5th Question Thou must give us
also sacrifices and burnt oflenngs
for therefore must we take
to sorve the Lord our God," Ex. 10 :
25 and 20.
Your correspondent must have a
very limited idea of the passage of
the childreu ot Israel tnrougn tho
wilderness, over 600,000 ot them,
and also a limited idea of its being
God's work, and God at the head of
affairs, all-mighty, all-powerful.
We cannot but teei that our sab
bath School has a far more clear
and concise view of the Tabernacle,
its construction, its glory and its
use, after the explanation by dif
ferent members of the school as the
drawings were exhibited.
The April prophicies of fine sum
mer weather.upon and after the first
day of May, have not been fonnd to
full out in fact ; cold and storm,
cloud and heaviness were ascribed
to the eclipse, that over and all was
to be as fair as blissful morn or
dewy eve. Queries : What has
become of all the prophets f and
what have eclipses to do with the
summer ! Alas ! Alas t
Along the banks of the Connecti
cut are strips of intervale; how
beautiful they look just uow ! The
enraptured poet must have had
some such in view, when he sang,

Upon these meadows, the farm .
ers are now at work, plowing and

kinds ; one is preparing for fifteen

Is it right to appropriate "fields of

cultivation of a foul and filthy wcad,

To help in deciding these inter
rogatories, here is the
"Not that which goeth into the mouth de
flhfh a'ninu. Nothing in unclean of itself;
but to him that CHtccineth nnything'uuclciin
it is unclrau." "Every creature of God is good
and nothing to lie refused." "Uut the pure
alirtbiugs arc pure." "Ho which is lilthy, let
him be filthy still." 2d Peter, 1 : 21); Kev. iK :
To learn where the gold for the
Jewish tabernacle teas dug, look at
Ex. 35 : 22. Query : Does this look

with it willingly. Cleeious.
Ohfoudville. On the morning
of the 22d, in going to the village,
Mr. Bradford Sargent met with an
unfortunate accident. lie had a
span of colts and had just crossed
the Clover Mill Bridge, near the
mill yard of B. F. Trussell, Esq.,
and in passing a peddler's cart one
of the colts took fright and pushed
the other one out of the road, by
which means M. S. was thrown 0"'
among bushes and stones, seriously
bruising his face and occasioning
general lameness. The wonder is
that the injury was not greater.
Two boys with him escaped unhurt.
