A correspondent of the Wesleyan Times writes from Portsmouth, New Zealand Since the cessation of hostilities in March, 1801, the Church of England have enlarged their church and built an additional wing to their school-room. They have two excellent clergymen, whose delight is in doing good. The Wesleyans have erectek a spacious school-room, and commenced a day-school with success. They have two ministers stationed here, both of whom have been long tried and found faithful. The Primitive Methodists opened a handsome and commodious chapel twelve months ago, and held their first anniversary services last Sunday, the proceeds of which, including donations and subscriptions for a harmonium, were upward of i'3o. The Presbyterians have lately placed a minister in this town ; he has commenced his work in a small chapel, which was built for the Independents some years ago; but the small Independent interest connected with it was broken up dur ing the last war, and the minister is now laboring in Victoria. Thare is a good spirit of hearing in all the places of worship, and the Sunday-schools are well attended. Before the commencement of the last war, the Primitive Meth odists had four small chapels in the country, besides cottages in which preaching services were held; they have all been dosed for more than three years, except the one at Bell Block, which was opened for a few months, and is now closed again. The effect of the war upon religion is very bad. More than ordinary grace is needed by the people of God; and extraordinary vigilance, pru dence, and faithfulness are neccessary to enable the ministers of Christ to prevent a host of evils from rushing upon the people of their charge and crushing the hopes which they cherished con cerning many, especially the young. Another correspondent writes from Adelaide, South Australia : The Rev. J. Maughan, minister of the Methodist New Connec tion, has been compelled to leave the rooms in Hindly street for the want of sufficient accomodation, and has hired White’s large assembly rooms in King Wilhan street. This large room, which will accomodate 700 people, is tilled on tht Lord’s day with eager listeners to the word of life. We hope this earnest brother will be made a great blessing to our city. We are told £BOO have been paid for a piece of land in Franklin street on which to build a church for Mr. Maughan. A great deal is being done in our colony by the various Meth odist bodies. The Wesleyans, Bible Christians, and the Primi tive Methodists arc taking hold of every part of the settled dis tricts. We have at this time about 185,000 souls in that colony, 440 schools, 550 Churches and chapels, which will accomodate five out of eight of the entire population. For a colony not thirty j ears old this speaks well; but still much more remains to be done. Some there are in the bush who have not entered a place of worship for years, and cannot reach one. To meet'the spirit ual wants of those who are scattered in the bush, the various churches have united in forming a “Bitch Mission.” Two men are supported bv the churches for the purpose of carrying the Gospel to those hitherto neglected. A letter ia the London Watchman represents that the work of the Wesleyan mission in Ceylon is steadily progressing. A short time since* a pap**r in the Cinghale.se language was started, and sueh lias been its success that a second one is contemplated, Hev. It. S. Hardy is engaged in writing a book to be called, Budd hism m>t Historically True. It is to be published in English first, which will give it a wider circulation, and as there are so many able to translate, there is no doubt of its finding its way into Cinghalese also. The Buddhists have seized on Bishop Col enso'.s book with the greatest avidity, and they have already pub lished (heir first extracts from it and arguments based upon it, against the Bible. It is said, however, that after paying a large sum to get it out from England, they find it of small value to them. The Bible society is continuing its issues of the whole and parts of Scriptures, and it is now found advisable to sell in stead of giving them. The Vernacular Education Society is also issuing thousands of monthly periodicals, which are bought up almost immediately, and the demand is continually increasing Efforts are being made to establish a ragged school at Colombo. A training-school for native schoolmasters is also contemplated by the Church Missionary Society, to be established at Badda gamma, near Galle. United Methodist Free Churches. From the report of the Seventh Annual Assembly of the United Methodist Free Churches, as contained in the Wesleyan Times of Aug. 19, we extract the following table of statistics: The following are the totals of the statistics of the Connection as far as they concern the home societies, Part of the foreign statistics are not yet prepared, and therefore they are not in cluded. 1863. 1862 * Itinerant Preachers, ... 209 211 Supernumeraries, .... .... .... 11 Focal Preachers, 2,821 2,871 Leaders, 3.708 s’7ls Members in Society 59,125* 60,880 On Inal, .... 5,283 Removals and Withdrawals, .... .... 5 394 4 970 Deaths, .’ 776 696 Increase, 2,378 4,437 Decrease, 235 184 Nett Increase, .... .... 2,143 4 052 Chapels, 971 965 Other Preaching Places, ... 402 394 Chapels built during the year, .... .... 32 Chapels enlarged ditto, .... .... 25 Sunday Schools, .... .... 967 646 Sunday Scholars, 119,156 123,320 Sunday-school Teachers, .... .... 19,898 19,041 Day Schools, .... ... 24 36 Day Scholars, 2 035 1,668 Day school Teachers, .... .... .... 33 Chapeis Registered, ... .... .... 529 512 Chapels settled on Model Deed, 211 178 Tin- total* here Riven f r !S- include both homo and foreign societies, whilst those for the current year contain at present only the home societies. So many are Cod's kindnesses to us, that, as drops of water, they run together ; and it is not until we are borne up by the mul titude of them, as by streams in deep channels, that we recognize them as coming from him. We have walked amid his mercies as in a forest where we are entamrled among ten thousand growths, and touched on every hand by leaves and buds which we notice not. We cannot recall the things he has done for us. They are so many that they mud needs crowd upon each other, until they go down behind the horizon of memory like full hemispheres of stars that move in multitudes and sink, not separate and distin guishable, but multitudinous, each ea ting light in the other, and so clouding each other by common brightnoess.

Counsels for the Young. Never be cast down by trifles. If a spider breaks his thread twenty times, twenty times will he mend it again. Make up your mind to do a thing and you will do it. Fear not if trouble come upon you; keep up your spirits, though the day he a dark one. Troubles never stop forever, The darkest day will pass away. If the sun is going down, look at the stars ; if the earth is dark, keep your eye on heaven ! With God’s presence and God’s prom ises, a man or child be cheerful. Sever do pair when fog's in the air, A sunshiny morning will come without warning. Mind what you run after! Never be content with a bubble that will hurst, or a tire-work that will end in smoke and dark ness. Get that which you can keep and which is worth keep ing : Something sterling that will stay When gold and silver fly away. Fight hard against a hasty temper. Anger will come, hut re sist it stoutly. A spark will set a house on Are. A fit of passion may give you cause to mourn all the days of your life. Never revenge an injury, lie that revenges knows no rest; The meek possess a peaceful breast. If } r ou have an enemy act kindly to him, and make him your friend. You may not win him at once, but try him again. Let one kindness be followed by another, till you have compassed your ends. By little and little great things are completed. Water falling day by day Wears the hardest rock away. Whatever you do, do it willingly. A man that is compelled to work, cares not how badly it is performed. He that pulls off liis coat cheerfully, and strips up his sleeves in earnest, is the man for me, A cheerful spirit goes on quirk; A grumbler iu the mud will stick. Evil thoughts are worse enemies than lions or tigers, for we can keep out of the way of wild beasts, but bad thoughts win their way everywhere. The cup that is full will hold no more ; keep your head and your heart full of good thoughts, that bad thoughts may not find room to enter. Be on your guard and strive and pray To drive ail evil thoughts away. —Scotch Paper. John Beckwin’s Dream. Rough John Beckwin, a, Mississippi ferryman, tied his boat to a post, and plodded wet and weary, to his little house. Having thrown himself, with ait oath, into a chair, he lighted his pipe, and puffed the smoke up the chimney, while he dried his feet at the lire. Presently his little daughter came in, leading her younger broth er, said, with a grieved expression, “Mother, little bub swore ; little bub can’t have any wings when he dies to fly up to the good place. Poor little bub!” and the little girl began to cry. But the boy looked up to his mother’s face, and said, “But father swore too. Can’t he have any wings when he dies ?” The mother did not answer, for she feared the stern man who sat smoking his pipe by the lire. But the iron had entered John Beckwin’s soul. That night he dreamed ; and as he stood before his cottage, looking at the stars and moon, there was a sound of a trumpet above, that made the world tremble, an exceeding glory in the sky, and from the midst of the glory a voice calling to the judgment. And immediately the air was full of white souls, whose eyes turned upward with a steady gaze, while their hands were clasped over their breasts. And the voice called again, “Come, ye blessed.” Then, to the white souls were given wing?, full of stars and shining like silver, which flashed back the glory from above, as they calmly floated upward. While he stood wondering and temiied, he heard a sharp cry of pain at his side. There stood his little boy, with ragged and oil-stained coat, and hands stretched piteously up to ward the flying host. “Oh, my father!” exclaimed he, “why did you teach me to do wrong? The dear Lord just now beckoned me to come, but 1 had no wings and no cloak of silver; and He looked grieved at me and turned away. Oh, father ! why did you teach me to do wrong ?” There was a sound of thunder—a crash of the universe—and the old man found himself in a long train of souls, with heads bowed, and tears running from their eyes, walking down a black, iron-arched way, where lie could look only before him, and see beyond the great train of weeping ones an open gate from which came fire. But he heeded them not, for behind him he heard the patter of little feet, and ever and anon, amid sobs and moans, the voice of a child, “Oh, father ! why did you teach me to do wrong ?” John Beckwin awoke, and heard his little boy q nctly breath ing in the cot beside him. He never swore again. —Juvenile In structor\ Eating and Drinking. “The princes eat in due season, for strength and not for drunkenness.” Once a man of temperate habits was dining at a house of a free drinker. No sooner was the cloth removed from the dinner-table than wine and spirits were produced, and he was asked to take a glass of spirits and water. ‘“No, thank you,” said he, ‘Tin not ill," ‘‘Take a glass of wine, then,” said his hospitable host, “or a glass of ale.” “No, thank you,” said he, “I'm not thirsty .” These answers called forth aloud burst of laughter. Soon after this the temperate man took a piece of bread from the side-board and handed it to his host, who refused it, saying that he was not hungry. At this the temperate man laughed in his turn. “Surely,” said ho, “1 have as much reason to laugh at you for not eating when you are not hungry, as you have to laugh at me for declining medicine when not ill, and drink when I am not thirsty.” Pulling for the Shore. Danger makes some men strong and others weak. People exposed to the dangers of the sea often show wonderful strength and courage. They would not believe it possible for them to work the pumps, or to help lighten the vessel by throwing the cargo overboard, yet when the hour of danger comes their strength comes with it. Fancy a boat’s crew overtaken by a squall ! Their lives depend upon their strength and skill to get the boat to the shore. The long and strong pull may do it, but so far as human help goes, nothing else will. How hard men will work to save the life of the body which will soon end, and how careless and indolent are they to save the life of the soul which will never end ! Will our young friends hear the loving Savior’s words, “Fear not them which kill the body, but rather f-ar Him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. " —The Child's World. How Much Was a Penny a Day? Much better wages than it sounds to us. An agricultural pa per says that in the time of Christ a penny was about equal to fifteen of our cents, and as money was then ten times as valuable as now, the penny a day was as good as one hundred and fifty of our cents ; so that men who worked in the vineyard for that, got as good wages as good men now generally have in harvest time. Th ? gift of the good Samaritan of two pence to the landlord to take care of the man who fell among thieves, in addition to raiment, the oil and wine, was equivalent te about three dollars of our cur rency, which would probably pay for his board two weeks in a countrv tavern where board was very cheap. ft From the Song Messenger. THE SWAMP ANGEL. The large Parrot gun used in bombarding Charles ton from the marshes of James Island is called the ‘•Swamp Angel.’’— Soldier's Letter. Down in the land of rebel Dixie, Near to the hot-bed of treason, Five miles from Charleston, In the sands of James Island, Swept by tides of the ocean, Is the Swamp Angel. Can Parrot With plumage as black as a raven, And scream unlike her tropical sisters— A hundred pounder with terrible voice, Be called bird or anguii She’s for freedom And Uncle Sam!—synonymous terms. An angtd of vengeance and not of mercy Sent to execute wrath upon the city Whence sprang secession. At night this angel raiseth her voice, And her cry is “woo” and not “rejoice!” She sehdeth far her meteor shell, And it soaroth up as if to dwell Where the watching stars in silence glow, There poissth itself for the mighty Mow! Then downward shoots like a bolt from God, Crushes the dwelling and crimsons the sod. Fire leaps out from its iron heart, Hives the defenses of treason apart, Till rniu spreads her sulphur pall O’er shattered tower and crumbling wall, And fearful crowds from the city fly, Seeing the day of her doom is nigh. 0, ye who herd with traitors! —say, Is this the dawn of that promised day Your poets sung and your prophets told ? Is this age of Iron your age of Gold? For this did ye rouse the Southern hate, To rend the Union strong and great, And build on the low Palmetto's shore An empire proud forever more, . And shut in the face of the North your door? Hoar ye in the Angel the Northern call, Thundered on Sumter’s shattered wait, Echoed in Charleston’s silent street, Shouted in treason’s proud retreat: — “Freemen must share with you the land! Choose olive leaf or flaming brand; Choose peaceful commerce’s flag of stars, Or rifled guns and Monitors! “By you were words of treason spoken, By you the nation's peace was broken; The first gun fired whoso startling jar, Send thrpugh the land the shock of war! Hear truth- by Gospel trumpet blown— Shall ye not reap as ye have sown? Thistles fur thistles, tares for t ires, The whirlwind’s breath—a rain of snares ; The avenging angel rides the blast, — Y'ou fired the first gun, we’ll flro the last!” Nortu Ik.vw.Mi, Mass. T. N. J. How a Man Feels and Acts During an Earthquake. The Boston Traveler published the following extract of a private letter from Manilla, giving the writer’s personal ex perience and sensations during the late terrific earthquake which visited that city; “It would he impossible to give you an idea of the late earthquake, f.r though I have road the accounts of many severe ones, I never could realize the position until I had felt one, and I never knew what dreadful destruction it would make until the 3d of this month. I have heard nothing talked about but earthquakes for the past ten days, everybody telling their experience and giving their idea of causes and effects of earthquakes in gen eral. My experience was that I had finished my soup and was helping my self to fish, when three or four up and down bumps came. I ran for the Azo tea (piazza covered with iron roofing.) Then came the fearful swing motion from north to south. I clung to the post (wooden, which supports the iron roof,) to keep myself from falling, ex pecting every moment that the stone walls which supports the Azotes would give way, aqd that I should he thrown into the river with the house on top of roe. The whole shock did not last over half a minute, but was an eternity to roe. The falling of stone houses and tile roofs was terrific; part of our roof (weighing seventy tons) fell in. About 300 feet from where I was the tower of Biqondi Church fell through the roof of the church ; this tower was 150 to 200 feet high, built of solid stone, four to six feet thick. Yet the din from falling churches and houses was so great that 1 did not distinguish when it fell. When the shock was over, the air was so filled with dust of lime that I could scarcely breathe, and there was not a bieith of air. When the moon rose, later, Ma nilla was a frightful and dreary sight to sec. Everybody was in the streets, pray ing or fleeing with what they had saved, into the country. For days after, the people walked the streets without speak ing. And there was no noise of car riages, and no bells, in a city where there were thousands moving before at all hours.” A Smart Boy. —A bright little three year old was sitting in his mother's lap a few evenings since, when he a.-,ked. •Are stars in heaven? The mother of •ourse responded in the affirmative, when the little fellow put the further juestion, “Are the s tripes there too. mo ther? Terms: i onc dol . lar P er J ear ( it paid in advance. Hints for Manned People, It lias been well said that married couples should study each others’ weak points for the same reason that skaters look out for air-holes in the ice—in or der to keep clear of them. Unfortu nately, however, they often use their knowledge of such tender spots for a very different purpose ; sparing no pains to give them a rub on every possible oc casion. Hence “domestic difficulties” innumerable. Women have immense power over the men-creatures, and they know it; but, alas ! they do not always exercise their influence wisely. The wife and mother should be the primary orb of the domestic system, the center of attraction to all the members of the family group—for when wives arc “re pelling bodies,” away go husbands and fathers and sons, flying off at a tangent into space. Men should remember that many of our highest privileges are found ed on compromises and concessions. It is so in the world political, and the pol icy that makes a state prosperous and happy is not bad as a home policy. Therefore, 0 Benedick, if thou wouldst acquire the right to ask a friend to din ner without notice, neglect not to respond favorablv when the partner of thy joys and sorrows hints at anew bonnet or a new silk dress. It is a faithful saying that the “wife’s wants is the husband’s opportunity,” and the converse of the pro verb is equally true. It is one of the misfortunes of unregulated families that both wife and husband insist upon hav ing (he last word. Nothing can be more improper. The last word is an “infernal machine,” and married folks - hould no more struggle for it than fora hundred pound shell with the fuse lighted. To married ladies who find their spouses not quite so perfect as they had sup posed them to be, during the billing and cooing period, we would suggest that angels have not been permitted to wed with women since the flood. The Beauty of Age. There are extremes, my reverend se niors, into wlii a we are tempted to fall when we find ourselves upon the wane. Declining ladies, especially married la dies, are more given, I think, than men, to neglect their personal appearance, when they are conscious that the bloom of their youth is gone. Ido not speak of state occasions, of set dinner parties, and full dress balls; but of the daily meetings of domestic life. Now, how ever, is the time, above all others, when the wife must determine to remain the pleasing wi'c, and retain her John An derson’s affection to the last, by neat ness, taste, and appropriate variety of dress. That a lady has fast-growing daughters, strapping sons, and a husband at his office all day long, is no reason why she should ever enter the family circle with rumpled hair, soiled cap, or unfastened gown. The prettiest woman in the world would he spoiled by such sins in her toilet. The morning’s duties, even in the store-room and kitchen, may he performed in fitting, tidy costume, and then changed for parlor habiliments, equally tidy and fitting. The fashion of the day should always he reflected in woman’s dress, according to her posi tion and age —the eyes crave for variety as keenly as the palate ; and then, I hon estly protest, whatever her age, a natu rally good looking woman is always handsome. For, happily, there exists more than one kind of beauty. There is the beauty of infancy, the beauty of youth, the beauty of maturity, and, be lieve me, ladies and gentlemen, the beau ty of age, if you do not spoil it by your own wvnt of judgement. At any age a woman may be becomingly a/ul pleasingly dressed. — /fount- ho Id Word. s’. The Sword of Montgomery, An Avon correspondent who was re cently at Quebec writes : !; Arc you aware that the sword of Montgomery is still kept in Quebec ? On a visit there a few days ago I was informed on credible authority that a Canadian there still retains the identical weapon which his father took from the body of Montgomery on the morning after he fell. The statement was that this man went out early in the morning to see what had been done and found the body partly frozen. He took the sword and kept it. He lived to old ago and then bequeathed it, with a written statement of all the circumstances, to hi-: sou. who has preserved them to this time. Is not this mutter worth an exam ination ? I mentioned it to the gentle manly American Consul there, Mr. Ogden, who seemed to be aware of it. How it would electrify the heart of every patriot to have brought home at this lute day the sword which Montgom ery carried to the wails of Quebec. I tried to see it, but failed on account of missing an appointment, and, coming (Wav had no further opportunity. NO. 5.
