KII1KI.AMI Tho following clever sketch or Parson Thaeher, of Milton, of whoso eceentiicitios miiny anecdotes aro c.U.uit, wo havo no doubt will ho entertaining to our reader. 'When inv brother 1!. wasn littlo boy,' saul Miss. , "'his health was delicate, and ho w.is sent to tlio country to school, and there bnardul at a great old V.n m-housc, ono of the real old New England style, of yhich lew specimens now remain. Here, in tlio first cold weather ol autumn, the family congre gated about tho kitchen fire, so as not to dis turb the flower-pots, which still ornamented the hearth of the keeping room. 'Iho joung student Irom lloston was accommodated on ono sido of tho fire, and a littlo stand, on which was placed u tall iron candlestick, neiring a dlpt-candlo with a wick an inch long, lor tho furtherance of his studio.-'. Not being much inspired by the book under those circumstance, II. was wont t ) !itcn to the talk of nn ancient dimo who sat with a jicr renni.il fountain of knttting-work in a high hick chair on tho nppositosnlo of tho hro, bo stow ing various hints and cautions upon n oung clergyman lately ordained, and hoping )io would ho" 'kcrried through' all tho work tint was before him in tlio ministry of that parish. Tho young clergvman, city bred, and only a guest at tho farm-liouse, listened with defer ence and replied very satisfactorily tomostof tho old lady's remai ksj hut ho could not bo made to understand very clearly in what par ticulars ho was likely to lind his position moro than usually difficult, lie did not seem to doubt that he should bo 'kcrried through,' though ho said so very modestly. 'Humph !' said tlio old lady, taking n spare knitting-needle from her wofk and passing it gently under her cap with a rellectivc air, Hid vou evir hear about I'.irson Thaeher 'h day, Mr. Z.' My mother could remember l'uroii Thaeher, though ho died in 17-7. Ho was a man that had been to school and then to college in this country, (it vvas tho custom in Hum days,) then to l.eyden, where he studied fur tho ministry, and not only that, but learned medicine and surgery, and not content with that, studied law beidcs.' Mr. . began to open his eyes at this enumeration of his predecessor's accomplish ments. 'Yes,' continued the good ladv, 'and be sides, was a good mechanic, so tliat he could uso almost any tool. Well, ho come hack, settled in this town, and married Theodo-ia 1". and she made a good wife, and and they lived very compirtahly in their plain way.' 'lint,' said tho young clergyman, who be ing fiesh from college, was tho least in the world priggKh, 'I can seircely seo how Mr. Th.ichor's Kiiropean aciiuiremcnts were ue cessiry to him for btich a position,' 'Humph.' s lid the old lady ag i ill , stay 'till I tell you my story. One .Monday morning parson Thaeher said to his wife, I've en- g igod to go to 1) to preach an ordination sermon on Wednesday and I must set out to morrow ; so this day I must have entirely for my study,and you must not allow mo to be interrupted"fur any tiling short of a cao of life or death. So Mrs. lhacher promised, and the good parson went thoughtfully up stairs to prepare his sermon. llo was scarcely seated when a woman in the neighborhood cimo in, almost breathless, anxiously inquiring fur Mr. '1 hacher. 'lie is'in his study, and cannot he disturb on any account. 'Oh, dear '' says tho poor woman, '1 don't know what I shalMo, fur our best cow's very sick, and nobody can't do nothing to help her. We've had l.ciren.tho cow doctor, and he can't tell what's the matter with her. What will become ol ns ll we luso her' Xnvv Mrs, Thaeher felt so bad to think tho woman iini'-thiso her eow, that she e'en ven- tuicd up stairs and Knocked at her husband's door. Wife, you know I lohlott I roultit't ' 'Yes, but p ior Mrs. I'limhlcy 'and then she told all about tho eow and tiied to persuade the paison to go at once. This ho said was out ol the iUestiun; but ho wuuld certainly call after dinner, as ho was obliged to pas i,y Mrs. Tiimh.ey's to go to a raising, vv hero he'had promised tu make a prayer. So the poor woman went home much comforted to think that parson Thaeher would enmo at all, so great was her opinion of his skill. Sho had hardly shut tho gite, when another neighbor cimo in as Hurried and out of breath as Mrs. Trimbley: and baldly remembering to bay how d'ye do bolero sho cried out. Where is Mr. Thaeher '' 'My husband is in his btudy, and tan not be" 'OIi, runup, do, Mrs. Thaeher, and tell him that Mr. Vo-o and Mr. Hunt havo had another awful ijuarrel again, and Mr. Voso siys he'll go right oil' to Huston and employ Lawyer d'lidley,' a pritty awful threat in thoso days 'for ho wont put up with ill usage any lunger.' This frightened Mrs. Thatcher dreadfully, to think a ipiarrcl should get to such a length in that neighboihood. So, know king her husband's power us peacemaker, she went up to his study door unco more. 'What is tho matter now, wile!" said r.irson Thaeher. 'Oli, a dreadful quarrel,' and so forth, re peating nil the threats and hnrd speeches, and begging her husband to interfere with out delay. 'Well, I can't possibly go now, but send word to Mr. Voso not to go to Huston till ho has seen Mr.. I will c ill alter dinner, as I go to raising.' Thi-vacified tho messencer, and the par son vvuit on v ith about the 'fourth' of his ordin ition sermon. I'rcscntlva violent rapping with tlio heavy end of u wliin washcaidat Iho dour, and u l.irmcr, Irom some distaneo oil', inquired for Mr. Thaeher. Mrs. Thaeher repeated the old excuse, but too I irmer was not to lu put off so easily, lie insisted on the minister's! wife guing up and telling her husband that a man w..s beluvv vv h must sco him, being in ureat trouble, ami wanting immediate help. I on t! is, with many groans, the pnr-mi.it length i uw down, mid leirned that tho man's axle trees had b;en hioken under a load of pitash l.ottios, and tie couiu Uo noimng witnout h'dp ' i'ho only thing to bo duno,' said parson Thaeher, ' is to m.iko another axlctrco just like tli.it. (io into my shed ; there you will find a box of tools." Cut duvvn a young hickory, make your axletree, and when it is ready I'll come and help you put it in.' And then tho paison turned to go up stairs again ; but Mr. Timelier told him thudinner was ready to take up.aud wuuld bo on tiie ta. hie in n minut". So Ins s it down tn dinner, and when that was finished it was quite time to go to thn raising. On the way ho reinem. beieil the sick cuvv. llo fuund tho poor row in great piiu, and seviralof tho neighbors standing round, h.okini' at her. Have you tried tliio, and this, and such anothi r thing '' ' Yes, but nothing does any good.' And then parson Timelier, with nil his Lojden learning, vm i.t close opto the eow, and I'xaiiiiuid Io r all over. 'Make heel of her while you can, Mis. Trimbley,' slid he, 'lor her leg is broken, and there is nuthing else to bo dune. And so he jogged nn to the sceno uf tho quarrel. There he lotind Mr. Vuo in n lowering passiuii, ilecl.u ing ho would go yst to Huston fir squiio liridlev, although ho had waited outol respect tu tlie pastor. 'What is the dilheulty this lime!' said par son Thuihcr. 'Oil, the old thing over ngiin. His cows have been in my inn, and I know they wero tuni'd in on purpo.e, and I'm iletirmined, if it cost ino evi ry ' .end lor Mr. Hunt,' said parson Thaeher ; and Mr. Hunt cimo. Alii r sunie parley, and sumo hard things said on both sides, tho par son askid 'What may lei the damage in money" 'About ii ii i ndmoii,'1 said Mr, Voso. ell, vou won't ulijcit to pay that, neigh bor Hunt'' said tl.o p.isior Why no, said Mr. Hunt; and after a friendly exhortation tho j arson went on his way at a brisk trot, feaiing to bo too lato at mo raising. Hero ho found nil in commotion, and ns scon , n8 ho ajipearedhis nauio was called out by a I donon at once A man had fallen off tho tim- hers, and was taken up for dead, 'lint hero is parson Thaeher,' said they. And the par sun lelt of tho man's milso, said ho was not dead, called for bandages, drew out a lancet, bled In tn , and In a short time signs ul lllc a t cared. All was soon over, ntid tho limn recovered. Tho raising went on; the minis tcr made his prayer, and then set off for homo, knowing ho had tho ordination sermon yet to finish. As he came past Hunt's. ho loniiil that man waiting at tho gate for him. 'Mr. Timelier,' said ho, 'you vo saved mo from nn ugly quarrel, and I thank you for it. My wife- wants j on to accept ol a leg of bacon of her own curing; and if you'll wait a minute, I'll stcji in and get it, and put it in your saihllo-bag.' So the bacon wan brought, and it took soir.o little time tu get it into tho baddle-hag; hut, sermon or no sermon, such a present must not ho refused. And parson Thaeher trotted nn, hojiiiig supper would bo ready vv hen ho got huino. He had to ji.iss Voso's door, too, and Vosc, who was busy with sumctliing in tho yard, looked ii) and saw tho minister, and stopped him, that ho might thank him fur his Iricndly office in tho quarrel. Whilo they wero talking, Mr. Timelier said ; ' -Mr. Voso, may I troublo you to hand mo uji a good big stone, to put in the other sido uf my saddle-bags for Mrs. Hunt has given me a leg of bacon that weighs them down unequally, and causes them to slip.' ' Not I, indeed, parson Thaeher,' said Vosc; 4 I'll give you no stono ; hut my wilo has eomo guod nico cheeses, and if you'll wait just one minute, I'll step in and get ono to balance uur saddle-bags.' The chceso was forthcoming in a moment, and stowed away, and parson Thaeher chir rujicd on his horse and soon saw home. Hut at the gato ho was met by his wilb with a troubled countenance ' Here aro Mr. Mitchell and Mr. Wales come to stay all night, to go with you to morrow to the ordination, and I've nothing in tho world lor supper hut some eggs.' ' Don't bo troubled, my dear,' s.iid tho parson, and with that ho pulled the ham and the cheese out of the saddle-bags, and was abuut to step in and welcome his friends, when tho man of the axlctrco boarded him, seemingly a great deal out ol jiatienco. ' Wlfy, juirson Thaeher, you've staid so long, that it's too late for lao to go nn to night. There vvas nobody clso here to help me, and so here I am.' ' Well, never mind, neighbor, you can slecji hero, and go on in tho morning.' ' Ay, but 1 must be ready to start beforo day,' said tho farmer, 'ami the axlctrco has gut to bo mended to-night.' Mr. Thaeher saw there was nothing for it hut to help tho jioor man after hit own fashion ; su ho culled for the lantern, j.ut uji his horse, heljicd the man in with tlie axle tree, ate his stijiper, jierformed the family devotions, saw all his guests sifely stuwed aw ay for the night, and then sat down and finished his ordination sermon. And so en ded parson Thaeher s Day. Tho old lady looked at tho young clergy man; but he did not sjie.ik. llo wore a very sad countenance, and very soon taking up his tall iron candlestick, went musingly to bed. IFrom the Pi rintrfisld lpi.llnm l.KTint rilOM A VOf.Mi MIX IX TOWS S0C1ETV TO HIS btSU.lt I TUB CUl.MIIV. Si'MNRi ei i), March 7, 181G. Mi Dear June ; My letter of lut week vvas so sad and solemn that it touched the hearts of somo very rcsjiectablc spiritualists wholivo heie ; and I received through tho licpublican office, the following note: J71 M inn'rine, V.f.i Hear Mr I have been impressed to write you a brief letter, iiiforming ou that tho spirit of Kato has made its appearance in our cirelp, and wihes for an lnteri lew with you. Iho sjiirit is described by a seeing ip.ldiuiun one of much beauty an 1 groat gentleness, well worthy of tho hl.'h tnbuto you paid to her, Irilu your imprc-'-- lons ot her la tlio lonn. ino circle w 111 meet ai my bouso on Sutiir.tuy evening (March 1,) wbcu wo liopo to seo ,vou. Yours in tho love ol tho new dispensation, Now nothing could moro fully have fallen in with my wishes than this invitation. 1 had uearu su uiueu aim seen no nine 01 Hpunuai- i hiii . tnat i Jetcrinincci, at once, to atienu ino circle; and, accordingly I dijiatched a noto announcing tho fact to my new, unknown and very jiolito friend. 1 confess that, as tho hour apjiroached for tho jirojioeed interview, a feeling of most un worthy superstition crept over me. I was about to hold converse with a beingofanother world, and whilo the thing seemed pleasantly at a distance, as u mere jioctie lancy, the reality quito excited me. 1 was not to bo terrified however, and was at tho ajqiointcd place punctually, I was greeted with great cordiality by the comjiany assembled, csjie cially tho leinalc portion uf it. One young lady held my hand a long time, nnd remarked that my vigorous electrical forco quite restor ed her weak nerves. Sho rather thuught sho should know now whero to look for tone, when sho wanted it, if I would be bo kind. Her confident and confiding manner quito don mo, for sho was very j.retty, and well, after nil, that wasn't exactly what I was go ing to say. Wo silt down at a tablo, the pretty young lady by my side, and wo took hold of ono another's hands, and remained still for a few minutes. Then my jirctty neighbor began to twitch all over. Sometimes bIic grasped my hand convulsively, and I really began to feel sorry for her. Sho looked as il sho was get ting unconscious at last, and 1 sjioko to tho gentleman who had invited mo. 'Isn't .Miss going into a fit' inquired I. ,'Is sho oltcn troubled in that way1' 'The spirits aro magnetizing her,' rejilicd the gentleman sol emnly, and added 'seo tho hoavenly smilo a' flitting over her countenance. ' 1 looked, and sho really ajijioared quito jdeased with tho operation, or with something that had been 6iid, I could not tell which, l'rctty soon, becoming calm and still, sho said : I am lints, now no top no. Max " And then sho shook my hand, and, leaning over, kissed ino ' . . .1.... , , ,.. , ... ., r.li i ion iniiy iiuignie inai i luusneil.aii'i leu not ii little indignant ; but I was immediately calmed and jdacedatmycisoby tho remark of tho gentleman that the spirit of my old friend Kate had jiossessed itself of my neighbor's firm, and that it vvas Kate who kissed lae, and not my neighbor. Hut I had conio de termined not to bo duped, and said, " How shall I know that it is Kuto and not my neighbor ' " Tho lady answered, " namo your tests ; nnd first remember that Kato never kissed you on your lips, but always on your cheek. She kissed your cheek just now.' I can npjiree'mte, as I think calmly of it, tho dolicaey and beauty of this test, for tho statement of tho lady was correct in regard to dear Kate's modo of kissing. Tho test was all tho moro jierfect from tho fact that jirob ably not ono fern llo spirit in a thousand, if their earthly tastes and habits had been pcr jictuatcd, would havo jirefcrred tho cheeks to tho lijis. Then I began to think about tests, but I eould not fi ujion any that would bo satis factory. Sho evidently beeamo awaroofmy jitmlcd condition, fur with a heavenly smile sho leaned over and whisjvered in my car' 'Max, do you remember ever having juit on your trowsers 'hind sido 'aforo1' I was "thunderstruck. Sho hud gono back to nu in nocent nnd artless scono of my childhood, and called un an event which shook my skepti cism to tho very bottom. I remember tho sceuo well. I was a littlo boy, nnd had just got oil' my jiclticoats. Ilcing nuihitious to dress inyselt without materia 1 assistance. I had risen in the morning, and having insuffi ciently studied tho mechanism of lay new clothes, had jilunged my foot into the wrong hole, buttoned myself upas well as I could, and gono down stairs, with, I think, my trow sers slightly oj.en down tho buck, and my shirt forming an insignificant jirujection thro' the guji. On my arrival in thodr.iwing-rooiu, I found littlo Kato and her mother there, rather, who, you know is an old joker, in sisted that 1 had got uji tho wrong side first, and that I must turn my head and leet around and then I should bo all right. l.ittlo Kuto laughed and giggled as If sho would burst; and it seems that Ibis littlo incident had so impressed itself uj.ou her mind that she had resorted tu it ns a test. I was satisfied. I told tho circle that I was more than satisfied. How could 1 bu otherwise 1 1 knew that thero was i not a jierson jiresent who had ever seen my n: aiititluons on in any uut mo correct manner. I Vnii inav smile, but I tell vou I was satisfied You need not tell mo it was elnirvnvanee, for I was not thinking of it; and h id it not been fur this incident, I do not believe I should over havo thought uf it again in my lib'. I wis now ready fir convers ition. "Kate," stid I, while a calm uwo jussessed my mind, "Kate, tue you hapjiy '" 'llajijiy '' said sh , while a beautiful smilo passed over tho million's face, liajipy as n humming bird.' I thuught the figure a littlo singular, but the circle thought it vvas bo.iutilul ; and, un a second thought, jiorhajis it vvas. 'What aro your otii'lnymoiits I watch overtoil, ami crotchet and knit, nnd oh ! I've just worked tho bottom ol one line of the pn ttiest I'otticuits you ever see.' I knew that wasn't Kate's grammar, but I also know she was very fund ofcrotehet work, and vvas very idea with her needle. It rather went against my notions touching the futuro state, that jiettieu.its wero worll by thosjiirit form, hut of couiso I was a novice, and felt delicate about asking tpiessiuus. "You are a child in knowledge," juirsiied tho modest sjiirit, "and vou must ojien join heart lo iusti itctiun. )vcry thing in the world has a spirit cottcn cloth, linen, silk, vvorstid and every thing. Tho first crcatuto I met in this strange country was a spiritual rooster who had been killed to make broth for me. Ho stood Ihppnig his wings, and crowing on tho lidgo-juiloufa sjiiiitu.il barn, and 1 could not help thinking he was a broth of a rooster, anyway, livery thing, as I s lid, has a sjiirit. On my ai ri s ill hero, 1 found all my drc-ses a great deal moro beautiful than they were in the material form. The color and lustre of the silk arc quite astonish ing. Society is dull at jircs.cn t, there are so many jicojile engaged in rapjiing . and those who aro not busy in that way are laid uji with soro knuckles nnd rlieiiin,itim, result ing from l.ijijiitig and tripjiing tables too much.

It is a new p ittcrn, ur, rather, an uld one re vived, ifor 1 got it from one uT queen IIlui beth's maids of honor." 1 must conless that 1 was charmed with tho free and easy conversation not that it seemed very much liko Kate, but then you must allow lor a chingeof circumstances, you know. It sjemcd jdeisant to think vo are to Jias into another existence which will ho only a refined countcr.irt of this : and that wo shall havo a good time tin re. S fir, I vvas converted, for I confess that I could not get over tho-o trowsers. ilury time a doubt swept aero--s my mind, a little boy seemed to be jiresented tome, in a vision, with his iuvetiiie habiliments improp"iy ad justed, and an unsuppresscd jiieco of linen jirotruutng. I eoum nut get around tnose trowsers on that memorable morning, and 1 cannot now. 1 rej.e.it to jou that I am sut islied. I now jirojiosi d to inquire into the authen ticity of the Christian religi in. 'Kate.' slid I solemnly, ' is Christianity the true re.i- gion ' 'Yes,' replied she. 'in the main. Christ was an excellent man, and contrived a reli gion that was very goo 1 in its day. Sum? of his j rccej'tn wero excellent, but, as a whole, I find that the general oj inion is that it has outlived its usefulness. If vou wish Cora reliable guide in religious matters, however, I w ill take it u j o'i yoinself to keep you jiu-ted, Love Ood, resjiect myself and be harmonious with everything.

Alter finding whero ho was, sho stepped up to him and said "Is your name Coleman '" llo rejilicd in tho affirmative. Sho then told him that ho had not been invited, nnd requested him to withdraw immediately; sho gave as her reason that ho had committed u cold blooded murder, and no murderer could find protection in her house.

Mr. Sevcranco vvas tho first editor of that Journal, and for 23 years, (from 182.1 to IS.10, ho give it a high character. Tho last four yens of activo cmjiloymotit in his life were sjiont at the Sandwich Islands, ns tho diplomatic rejiresentativo nf tlio UnitedStates. Ills conduct there was every way to his own lionur and to that of the (ioyerninont who sent him there, and acceptablo tu tho (lovern luoiitoftho hlands. Ho returned in feeble health in 1851, and died in 185 ). As an 1M itor, a Kcjiretcntativo in tho Stato Legislature and in Congress, ho was noted as an able, steady, and consistent upholder of what wero eilled Whig jirlncijilcs. So long as tho Whig pirty had any national vitality, ho adhered t) it. Hut when tho Southern Whigs almost unanimously joined tho Administration party in repealing tho Missouri Compromiso, ho considered tho Whig party, as a national or ganisation, at an end. In December, lS.'il, a month before his death, ho published his sol emn opinion that tho former issues had gono by. "His high time," ho said, "that North ern men should unite, whether Whigs, Demo crats, Know-nothings or Know-soniethings, 1'reo-soilers or Liberty-men, to tramplo in the dtit every northern dough-face who yield ed his voto to this iniquity, viz: the repeal of the Missouri Compromiso, and then to tako care to nriko no moro compromises on tho question of Slavery, but to return inflexibly to tho jiolicy of Washington, franklin and Jef ferson: i. e.ol limiting, restricting and finally abolishing slavery, instead of extending it over tho Continent. To do thisice nij t(ni(c rffiitunthj with those who concur with us, and wo must do it without delay. It is s present exigency, moro imjiortant at the moment than any other political question."

T Is sjieoch led to somo sharp vvouls between tho Austrian and Sardinian representatives, but it ended in nothing, Whilo on these sub jects, Count Wulcvvski throw out a cunning bait to entrap tho Congress into a measure of repression against tho Helgian Press, but Lord Clarendon' refusing in cold terms to lend tho inlluencoof England to any measure tending to check freedom of opinion, M. Walovvski backed out of the jiropos.il in the best manner ho could. Tho jilcnijiotentiariso then discussed and assented to a new declara tion of maritime law, agreeing that a neutral flag shall mako free cargo, cxccjit contraband of war ; shall bo free even under an enemy's flag ; that blockades, to bo respected, must be efl'cctivo ; and that jirivatccring is forever abolished. To these important jiriticiples tho jilcnijiotcntiaries gave tho adhesion of their governments, Itussia qualifying her as sent in tho matter of jirivateering.
