This is the title of a discourse preached in Ihe
Nortbik. «<M
month, by Rct Oeorge D. Armstrong, D D , pas
tor of the ch..rch. It U a masterly and overwhel
mine rebuke of the introdnction of Politics into
I« the corse of this able discourse,
or Amstrong shows that the anti^lavery preach
ers are not a peculiarity of this age but that they
•listed as far back as the days of St I anl, who,
under the Inspiration of God, gives Timothy in
action, in the following verses, as to the conne
beougbtto pursue with them: "bet as many ser
vants as are under the yoke count their own mas
urs worthy of all honor, that the name of God
,nd his doctrine be not blasphemed. And they
that have believing masters, let then) not despise
them, because they are brethren, bnt rather do
them service, because they are faithful and be
loved, partakers of the benefit. Those things

, not to wholetotne word*, even the u/om* of ou.r
ford Jet** Christ. and to Ou doctrine which is ac
tording to godliness. he is proud, knowing nothing'
bnt doting about questions and strifes of words,
whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil annals,
lngs, perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds,
and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is
godliness : From rvch withdraw thyself"
•'European Hketchre."
In the last number of the Central Presbyterian
is another of the highly graphic au.l entertaining
• Kuropean Sketches" of Dr. Hog*. The subject of
the sketch is London, or rather those localities of
that city memorable as the hatints and homes of
its men of genius and piety. The writer had sev
eral naiet dinners at one of Dr. Johnson's favorite
taverns, "The Mitre," acl visited "Belt Court,"
where Johnson resided for several years previous
to his death. In looking up the localities associa
ted with London s great men, tbe tourist, in almost
every case, found extreme difficulty in discover
ing anyone who seemed to take the least interest,
or possess the smallest amount of information re
specting tbe former residences and haunts of the
illustrious dead. Several instances, some of them
highly amusing, are given below :
In the very street where Chatterton died. I applied
ro several booksellers, but no one could tell me
waere the boose was. At last i mat with one. who
informed me that there wss an old lady residing with
bim, whose father had known Chatterton, aid
through her 1 ascertained the number of tbe house,
and the situation of the room. Repairing to the
plaee. 1 found that the different rooms were occupied
by po>r aud illiterate families, not one of whom bed
ever heard tbe uame of Chatterton. Ascending to
the upper story, I stated the object of my visit to the
aiao who had possession of that door. He toid me
lhat ths particular room I wished to see, (the corner
room, in the rear of the building,) was rented by "a
lone woman who was out. and would not return until
t \ euing," and li« added, I am g'ad she is not here,
for if she knew that she lived in a room where a man
killed At'ssr f, she woulri'nt stop there long. Thus
ended the search.
Similar was my disappointment at Cray's I nn, where
I sought to find the chambers which Bacon so long
occupied, where he wrote his treatises,
where he reduced legislation to a noble science, and
taught philosophers how to interpret nature: but I
baa to be content with surveying the gateway through
which he so often passed, and with traversing the
court trodden by his footsteps so many years—for
although all cf whom 1 made inquiry gave me re
ipectfal attention, and courteoaß repiies, vet no one
could give me any explicit information. Lven a bar
ns*er who had Lis own chambers there, and who
acknowledged that he ought to know better, was un
able to direct me to tbe rocms I came to see.
Passing one day th rouah Kastcbeap. I f sit a desire to
ascertain whether the Old Boar's Head Tuvorn was
still standing, or if not, whether its fonrer situation
was known Stepping into a bookseller's shop, said
I, •" i ill you be so kind as to tell me where the Boar's
Head Tavern stood 1" I will give his reply verbatim
ot literatim.
" Hecho hanswers, ware."

tongue in which the gentleman uibde his qaotation
He repealed his dark sayiag, and I wsa enlightened
Taking all the circumstances into consideration, a
ri jh«r specimen of the cockney dialect could not be
produced.
Dr Hoge gives an eloquent account of a visit to
St. Giles, Cripplegate, one of the most interesting
churches of London, and one of the buildings
which was not wholly destroyed by tbe great fire cf
IC6G. "Here most of those able casuistical diseours
«s published in six volumes, known as the 'Morn
ing Exercises,' were delivered. Among the ofticia
ling ministers were some of the ino=t eminent of
the Hon Conformist divines. It was in this church
that Ben Johnson and Oliver Cromwell were mar»
ried. Here Fox, the author of the Book of Mar
tyrs, lies buried. But that wbiehhas directed the
feet of a thousand pilgrims to the Cripplegate
church, is thr.t here sleeps all that is mortal of Kng
land's greatest poet, save one."
"Over the glob beneath which he sieops, is a tablet
on the wall, bearing the brief bat eloquent inscription
THE AUTHOR OF P.fcIAOISE LOST.
"In this church the great bard worshipped. Here
as he listened to the divine lyrics of David, and the
rapturous (trains of llaish. that noble face io which
umjesty and meekness were so sweetly mingled, glow
ed witb the beauty of the highest inspiration; and
here as he mused on the story of the Infinite Pity,
ttiose blind eyes whicti shed tears of pearl over the
grave of Lycidus, grew insist with a tenderer and
more sacred sarrew."

Yes'erdsy, ss oor worthy fellow-citizen, Christisn
Roaeiius, . wu sitting aloee In his law office, on
• ustomlioese street, the door was opened by Dr. E.
6. Harris, who en'eradand closed the door after him
and drawing a bowle knife from his bosmn, prepared
to plunge it Into the body of tbe venerable juilst.—
Quick of sight, and s'.HI stalwart of frame, Mr. R. at
once grasped his a*s«ilant by the srms and held l.im
uln a vie". The struggle which rnaurd soon brought
two young lawyers from adjoinieg rfliies info the
rooms, aod finally tbe doctor was disarmed and band
ed over to tbe Second District police As he was led
iway. he kept crying "morder" lustily, and the gen
eral impression •aetnsd to be that hit reiuoi wat

In s short time, ai sfiiiavit was marie by Mr. Ro»#-

seeming all the while to be laboring under the effect*
of ungovernable nervous irritability, or to be wan

At S o'clock in the afternoon, he prepared to go to

I* alh the bed clothes a glass. and from this be took a
rrink as toon as he had stretched himself out in a
streptng position. The servants who saw him swal
low the drink suspected nothing wrong; bul finally,
after remaining on the b.-ri save: a' uiinu-es he sprang
out, n.ixed a white powder which hef took from a

As e on as it was known that hi" had been using a

The " Georgia Duel.' - —Mr. B. H. Hill, the
Georgia, Fillmore elector, who was challenged
by the Hon. A. H Stephens, has answered the
denunciatory letter of that gentleman. Tbe fol.
lowing extract contains the pith of it:
" If the Invitation to mortal combat Is Intended
as a mere formal occasion, to exchange a few
harmless shots, and then have an adjustment, I
can only say I never engage in farces, nor make
feigned issues. If I could be made conscious that
I had done you injustice, I should de .m it a duty
to repair it, and should not wait first t<-> oe shot at.
If you did me injustice, I met the occasion with
the rtmcdij, and it does seem, made a shot which
produced a wider, if not deeper sore than any with
in the power of powder and ball to produce
"Now, sir, (ss I always speak plainly,) I will
only add that I know of nothing which has occur
red between you and me which could authorize or
justify a duel; and while I have never at any time
had an insult offered me, nor an aggression at
tempted, 1 shall yet know how to meet, and repel
any that may be offered by nny gentleman who
may presume upon this refusal or otherwise."
Kansas Items.—We find the following inter,
esting items of Kansas news in the Leavenworth
City Herald of the 13th instant:
In Leavenworth butchers are selling pork at 10
cents per pouud. Some of the farmers are selling
wood at $5 .50 per cord, and the wood choppers get
$2 per cord for cutting it for the stoves, making
wood cost $7 50 a cord.
Fifteen of the prisoners at Tecumseh have been
tried and acquitted, and 18 remained to be tried.
Thirty prisoners escaped and are now at large
There are two of the murderers cf tbe Doyles and
others of Ossawatomie, now in confinement, and
will be tried in a week or two at Tecumseh before
Judge Cata.
Shares in Lecompton are selling at this place
from 4 to #500, and eagerly sought after at that.
Some are asking more than $."*>oo a share. The
stock is advancing and the town improving at a
rapid rate-
It is estimated now that there will be over UOO
?ood buildings put up in Leavenworth city next
Summsr, and that the population, which is now
uoar 3000, will at least doable itself.
The citizens of Lecompton, v/illi great liberality
and enterprise, have fitted up at great expense,
two Halls for each branch of the Legislature, and
rooms for clerks and committees.
FRIEN I)I.VjSKN TI'!eNTs —At the Pilgrims' Anni.
versary banquet in New York, Mr. Fillmore one
of the editors of the London Times, in closing a
speech, said :
" When you are told that v;e think your Union
nr.ist eventually be dissolved, don't believe it —
We don't believe that one star will ever be taken
from the glorious constellation of your (lag You
and ourselves are the two branches of the great
Auglo-Saxouftce, and, together, we are destined
to be the civilizers of the world. Our courses are
different You go West, we move towards the
East; and, friends, we shall go onward embra
eing the earth until the two shall meet upon the
walls of China."
It is impossible to describe the enthusiasm Mr.
Fillmore's remarks produced on those present —
When a little silence was obtaiaed, a gentleman
got up and proposed "Nine cheers for Old and
New England," which were given with a wilL
Slave Hiring.—The Charlottesville Advocate,
commenting upon the disadvantages of allowing
negroes to chaose their own masters, says :
"This practice has become so general that an
amusing anecdote is told to illustrate its working
in the City of Richmond. Judge Lomax desired
to hire a dining room servant, and went for that
purpose to the place of general hiring in Rich
mond- He saw a negro whose appearance, qualifi
cations and price suited him. The boy wan equal
ly well pleased with the Judge's appearance, but
not being personally acquainted with him, asked
a day 's delay in order to enquire iuto the stand
ing and character of the Judge. Such incidents
occur with us every day during the Christmas
week,''
Ship Ashore—Loss ok Like —The ship Jer
sey, Capt. Andrew, of Salem, Mass., from Calleo,
with guano, bound to Hampton Roads, went ashore
in the snow storm on Saturday night, between !•
and 10 o'clock, on the Gravel bar, at the Wash
Woods, about 30 miles below Cape Henry. The
masts were cut away and every effort made to
save the vessel and cargo, but in vain Two
boats were launched and lost; and the crew, ex
cepting one man, succeeded in getting to the
shore, about half a mile from the ship, in an old
boat that had been condemned. One man was
washed overboard, and another froze to death,
after reaching the shore. The vessel and cargo
were both lost
Sad Effects ok Temper —Miss Platuer, who
killed her little nephew by throwing a pair of scis
sors at it« mother, in Stockport, New York, has
been released on bait ller brother and brother
in-law.as we understand came forward and tender
ed bail in the sum of $">,OOO, the amount required,
which was accepted, ard she returned home with
them. During her stay in the jail Miss P. was
very much dejected, aud ate but little of the food
offered her. She did not talk much, and seemed
indifferent what became of her, so sadly did the
wretehedness of her condition affect her mind.
Exports to Canada.—An official notice has
been published in Canada, announcing that all
railroad companie whose lines of railway cross the
provincial boundary, or terminate at such a boun
bary, shall be allowed to transport goods without
being detained at frontier posts for the purpose of
being examined at the Custom House, or for the
execution of frontier bonds. A compliance with
certain regulations on tbe part of the railroad
companies is repaired. These regulations are
published, the most important of which require
that the companies shall provide proper ware
houses and offices, and that cars nhall be specially
set apart for taking tbe goods through aud having
them locked up
A Failure.—The New Y6rk "Fifth Avenue"
lady, of New York, Mrs McMabon, who recently
made a debut on the stage in Buffalo, made a deci
ded failure. Her husban-1 had to indemnify the

their criticisms.
