words : "And this gospel of the king

After a very elaborate introductory, the
speaker referred to the gospel as glad

P»'nts : The Gospel of God, the Gospel
of i.hrist, the Gospel of the Grace of

able manner, and his listeners were
held in rapt attention. He said that

whosoever Bhould believe on him should
not perish but have everlasting life."
Joliu 3:10. This is the kind of immor
which Cbiist brings to light —

Special Correspondence of the Republican.
PlIILAOBLPHlA, Sept. 8, '79.
At to day's session of the Board of
Health a communication from the Na
tional Board of Health was presented
relative to establishing a government
quarantine station at the Breakwater,
for the purpose of inspecting all vessels
about to pass up the Delaware. This
action, it waa claimed by some of tbe
members of our Board, was simply in
tended as a blow at Philadelphia com
merce, whioh would in fact be ruined,
and it was determined to ask the Na
tional Board to suspend operations in
that diieotion until tbe views of the
Board of Trade and the several com
meroiai exchanges of the city have been
ascertained. Whatever may result from
this opposition, it is clear that some
thing should be done at the mouth of
the Delaware for the better protection
of the numerous towns between that
point and the Lazaretto:
If that something has to be done at
the expense of Philadelphia commerce
—and for this assertion there seems to
be no really valid reason—it is better
oommerce should suffer rather than the
residents along the Delaware
be placed in jeopardy by imports
tions of oontsgious diseases. Iudeed,

point near that proposed by the Gov
ernment, wonld undoubtedly fill the
bill of sanitary requirements more ef
f-cnally than at present, and would in
all probability avert the impending

Later returns from Maine indicate
that tbe Republicans have 18 members
of the Senate to 13 of the Opposition
and 89 members of the House to 62
the Opposition. There is nothing t
show what the vote for Governor is, o

party the State. It is thought that

Very few additional returns have been
reoeived since yesterday morning.

will be known from tbe official returns
It is quite probable that Davis may
eleoted by the people. The Repnhli
can tioket ia elected iu Androscoggin,
Cumberland, Franklin, Hancouk, K«n
nebej, Lincoln, Piscataquis, Sagadahoc,
Washington and York counties, giving
them nineteen Seuators, and making
certain tbe election ot Davis by the
Senate if he is not elected by the peo
pie. Eleven of the thirteen Represen
tatives in Kennebec are Republicans.
.Portland, Me., Sept. 9_At mid
night the returns show that the Sen
ate stands Republicans, 18 ; fusion, 12;
doubtful, 1. Tho bouse has 89 Repub
lioan and 62 fusion members. Senator
Blaine, in a speech to-night, said the
Republicans had a large majority in
the House of Representatives—eighteen
Senators, beyond all doubt, and may
have twenty out of the thirty ouethat
omstitute that body. ,
He predicted that the returns coming
in from the back towns will give Davis
an absolute majority over both compe
titers, tbongn he would not assert this
as a fact. Iu alluding to the extraor
dinary features of the contest he as
serted that prominent Democrats whose
property consists almost entirely of
Government bonds voted theGreenbaok

general review of the campaign just
closed, and an enthusiastic congratu
lation of the victorious party.

He appeared in fine spirits, and said
that the Sea Beaoh road wonld, witb

The Sea Beach road is tho only one
which connects with boats from the
North and East river sides of the oity:
and the boats of the Company are re

trains appear very affable and polite;
aud, taking the route all in ail, it ia
decidedly tbe most pleasant way that
we know of to get from the sweltering
oity of New York to the Sea Shore.
While on the beach we visited the
new iron pier. It is a magnificent in
stitution and its owners are well deserv
ing of the patronage which it receives.
The enterprise which they have shown
in constructing such a substantial and
commodious, as well as elegant build
ing, where to au ordinary observer, it
wonld e-era almost impossible for a
building to stand, is remarkable and
worthy not only of commendation bat
also of compensation.
