Sir Charles Lyell, the eminent dls covoror and writer on geology, was buried in Weotminotor Abbey, on the 27th nit. Dean Stanley, -who read the service and lessons at the burial, deli? vered c sermon next day Qpon the reli giono aspect of geology, taking for text tho second verso of the first chapter of Genesis?"Tho earth was without form and void; and daikncus wus upou tho face of the deep. And the spirit of God moved upon the fuoe of the waters." Ho treuted thceo words us having a sense wider than tho literal trnntjeript. They express transition from chaos, as understood by the Greeks, to the order of tbo universe, as described by Humboldt in bis "Cos? mos." They go from formless void, whioh convey the image of warring elements, to tho moving oi ihe Divine spirit whioh typifies the gentle brood? ing, as it were, of a bird of peace. This idea he happily unfolds and makes consentaneous with the modern spirit of inquiry and study, whose proper ef? fect is to bring order out of ohaos, and harmony out of discord. There in a likeness between the general spirit of the method of science and that of the Bible. It is a model to the student in its slow but increasing purpose of reve? lation, corresponding to the slowly evolved disclosures of scientific re? search. The pursuit of truth beaomes armed with peculiar power, when thus invested with tho sanctity of religious duty. This power has been nobly illustrated in the subatuntial agreement whioh has been roaohed by science and religion, found in the spirit, methods and results of each, in the faoo of lite? ral and temporary contradictions. Re? ferring to the text, Dean Stanley mokes it the instrument, as he interprets it'in oonneotion with the discoveries of tho great sohool of English geologists, of conveying this recondite, beautiful and most consoling truth. "Tho language," he says, "however poetio, child-like, parabolical and un? scientific, impresses upon us the prin? ciple which applies in both the moral and in the material world that the law of the divine operation is the grudual, peaceful, progressive development of discord into harmony, confuaiou into order, darkness iato light. It is well known that when tho study of geology first arose, it was involved in intermi? nable Bouemes of reconciliation with the letter of Scripture. There were and are two modes of reconoiliatiou whioh have each totally and deservedly failed. Tho oue attempts to wrest the words of the Bible from their real meaning, and force them to speuk the language of science, and the other at? tempts to falsify science to meet the supposed requirements of tho Bible. The 'seventy,' finding that the hare was described as obewiug the cud, in? serted the word 'not;' and on the other hand, the Jesuits, in editing Newton's Tciuoipia,' announced in the preface tbat tbey were constrained to treat the theory of gravitation as a fiotitious hypothesis, else it would conflict with the dearees of the Popes against tbe motion of the earth. But there is an? other reconoiliatiou of a higher kiud, or, rut her, not a reconciliation, but aa acknowledgment of the affinity und identity which exist* botweeu the spirit of suience and tbe spirit of tho Bible. First, there is a likeness of the general spirit of the truths of science to the general spirit of the Bible truths; und secondly, there is a likeness iu the methods. For instance, the geological truth which our illus? trious student was tbe chief instrument in clearly setting forth and establish? ing, was the doctrine, wrought out by careful, cautious inquiry iu all parts of tbo world, that the framu of this earth was graduully brought into its present condition not by sudden aud violent oonvuleioos, but by the slow aud si? lent action of tho same causes which we seo now; but operating through u long suoossion of uges beyond the memory and imaginatiou of man. There need be uo question whether this dootrino agrees or not with the letter of the Bible. We do not expect it should. For, had there been no such scientific conclusions, we now know perfectly well, from our in? creased insight into tbe nature and origiu of the early Biblical records, that they were not and oould not be literal, prosaio, matter-of-fact descrip? tions of the beginning of the world, of whioh, as of its end, no man knoweth or can oonceive except by figures or Sarallel. Ik is now clear to all stu epts of the Bible that the first and second ohap&era of Genesis contain two narratives of the oreation side by Bide, differing from each other in almost every particular of time and place and order. It is now known that the vast epoohs demanded by scientific observation are incompatible both with the 6.000 years of the Mo sato chronology und theeix days of the Moaaio oreation. No one now infers from the Bible that the earth is fixed, that it cannot bd moved, that the son does literally go forth as a bridegroom from hie chamber, or that the slat* sung with en audible voice in tbe dap n of tho oreation. Bat when we rise to tho cpirit, the ideal, the general drift and purpose of the Biblical accounts, we find ourselves in an atmosphere of moral elevation whioh meets the highest requirements philosophy can To Sir Oharies Lyell, as tbe expo neat oXtbUioltf 4?$tbod> M -the ,msa above all others in recent English his? tory in whom contradictories met to bo reconciled, be. pays thp following exquiaito tribute: "He followed truth with a sanotified zeal, a childlike humility. For disco? vering, confirming, rectifying his con? clusions, there was no journey he would not undertake. From early youth to extreme old age, it was to bim a religions duty fearlessly to correct all bia own mistakes, aod he was always ready to reoeivo from others and re? produce that which he had not in him? self. Iu his mind, science and religion were iudivisible. The freedom of re? ligious inquiry in the National Church, the cause of humanity in the world at large, were to him as dear as though they were his own personul and pecu? liar oonceru. There is unusual solem? nity in the thought of his passage into the eternal world on which, an in a shadow or mirror, be had so long meditated in those long ages of whiob ho was, as it were, the first dincoverer. The 'lofty and melancholy strain,' the Ninetieth Psalm, which old tradition ascribes to Moses, tbo man of Qod, whether it be or not the funeral hymn of the great law giver, well rep? resents the feeling of one grown gray with vast experience, who, at the oloso of bin earthly jour neyings, contrast the fleeting ge? nerations of man with tbo granite forms of the mountains at the feet of which he has wondered, and contrasts those mountains und mun alike with Him who existed before, be? yond and above tbem all. It sums up with peculiar force the inner lifo of the Christian philosopher who concluded bis obief work with tbo contrast be? tween the finite powers of man :tud the attributes of un infinite Qod, and who felt persuaded that after all the discoveries on earth or soa or t-ky, the religious sentiment remained the great? est and most indestruotible instinct of the human race."

A New Bonanza.?"Puff," the cor? respondent of the Greenville News, bus discovered a now mine of wealth iu au apparently harmless bill: '"Our legislators have fallen upou a scheme, however, which can be made to operate heretofore to fill their pockets annually. Thie is the bill to regulato tbe pay of members of the General Assembly, whioh is a veritable wolf iu sheep's clothing. It gives to membors suoh per diem and compen? sation hereafter, whilo convened in regular session, ris will amount to 8600, and no more, for the whole session; and for auy special session the same per diem as was allowed for tho next preeediog regular session. Tbat is, if a regular session should last 100 days, the per diem for that session would be 30, und if u special should be held that year, the per diem of such special ses? sion would also be 80. If tho regular Session should last only fifty days, the per diem would be $12, both for the regular und extra session. There is scarcely a limit to the amount the members may pay themselves under this bill by shorteuing the regular ses? sions and neglecting important legisla? tion, suoh as tho annual tax Aot or ap? propriation Aot, and thus making it necessary to cull extra sessions, which they oau prolong indefinitely. Sup? pose, for iustauoe, that a regular ses? sion should last only ten days, the compensation of members uuder this bill would be 860 a day, whioh would also be the oompeuLation for each day of a epaaial session held at auy time before the next regular ses? sion. If the extra session should last six months, eaoh member would re oeive for that year, inolading both sessions, 811,400."

Yesterday we received further informa? tion in relation to the devastation by the tornado last Monday afternoon. Instead of only the roof of Mr. Thomas' house being torn oft*, we learn that tho dwelling was completely wrecked, and evory buildiDg ou his placo leveled to the earth. Fortu? nately there was no damage to life or limb at this place. About one mile beyond, at Mr. T. D. Cook's settle? ment, the storm flond wreoked every house with the exception of the dwell? ing; and two miles farther, on Cedar Creek, Mr. Frank Strickland's honse was blown down. The tornado ap? pears to have exhausted its fury about tbo old Anornm Ferry road?a mile and a half beyond Mr. Striokland'a. A tree fell in Col. Oaughman's field, whioh is believed to have come from Mrs. Brevard's place, on the Bluff Road?a distanoe of four or five miles. The tree, (a Catawba.) which was torn np by its roots, was of sdbh hnge dimensions, that fonr mules could not move it. The whole distanoe, through woods and fields, traversed by the tree, presented the appearance of a well used road, all the trees and grass being crushed to the earth. . We learn that oar information as to the death of a m colored man at Mr. Padgett's plaoe was incorrect, though it is believed he will die, from the in? juries received. Mrs, Padgett' and ohild made a miraculous escape. She was standing in the honse, with the child in her arms, when the terrible wind struck aud demolished (he whole ?traotare in a twinkling?not a timber being Ifcftiaitaplttca?bat^&aftBd tbe ohild escaped without the slightest injury. Mrs. Davis had sovorol riba broken, and was otherwise eoverely in? jured. The blowing down of Mr. Davis' ohimney wsi tbe ctiuso of bis ohild's death. The tornado ie believed to have come from twenty miles on the Lex? ington side of the river, bat seems to have inflicted no damags, except pros? trating trees und feuces, before reach? ing Mr. Padgett's place. The woods were so completely swept down in the vicinity of tbe toruado'a greatest de struetiveuoss, that hut few trees were left standing. The Hibernian Society Suiter.? The Hibernian Society of Columbia celebrated its sixth anniversary, last evening, with high spirit aud enjoy? ment, at tbe Wheeler Hoose. Col. Mo Muster presided and opened the sentimental part of the entertainment with some interesting remarks upon Ireland, the Irish, and the Irish so? cieties in this country. Tbe regular tonut?, ??The Day We Celebrate/' "Ireland," "The United States," "South C-irolina," "Our Sister So? cieties," were respectively responded to by Messrs. Andrew Crawford, Judge Carpenter, Gen. Anderson, John T. Sloan, Jr., and Mr. Shields. Judge Carpenter, in speaking to the aentiment of "Ireland," was quite happy in the expression of his belief that unification wai advancing in that country, and that tho Irish were* day-by-day, vindicating more , end more olesrly their fight | and* their power of - self-government. Mr. Delano, of Charleston, gave "Wearing of the Green,1* with fine spirit and effect. I'be eopper was recherche in the highest degree, and served with admirable t-kttt and suc? cess.
