Near a late Jersey camo-nieetita.
two clergymen, a Baptist and a Method-
tat, were walking, when they law a little
girl sitting on a stone, who was weeping
bitterly. " What is the matter, my little
girl ? " asked the Baptist kindly. " My
mar father was k killed on the railroad
and has just been buried, sir; and my
mother is sick abed and can't work, and
havn (nothing to eat and don t know
what to do," sobbed the little girl, crying
as if her heart would break. "A truljr
lamentable case; I do indeed pity you, '
said the Baptist, frigidly, as if he were
pitying some ice-cream he could not eat.
How much do you pity ber, Brother C. ?
I pity ber fir dollars," yelled th Meth
odist, as ne threw a V into tne gins tap.
I double your pile, Brother r., the
Baptist brother said, as he slowly placed
an X over the V. "I go too. one bet-
the Methodist bawled, as be put a
ten on the other money. " I cover your
stake, brother P.," and the Baptist cler
gyman's exprossioB showed ke was get
ting excited as a twenty from- his purse
was put on the rapidly increasing pile.
" I'll top the spons with a fifty,'' bowled
Brother P., as he drew out his last note
htnd plaeed the sum with the others,
glaring savagely at bis companion.
Here's a hundred dollar note, little
girl," said the Baptist quite blandly, now
that ke had trot ahead of his Methodist
brother-in-the-Lord; "you may rake in
the spoils, for you're ' cleaned out' and
1 euchred both my friend and myself.' "
Then they walked off humming a hymn.
Now what we would like to know is,
what did those clergymen do before they
were converted T

hundred tona burden, owned by H. S.
Fuller, her captain, and S. A. St. John,
two veteran residents of the Fiji Islands,
the Alt says: .
" Capt. F uller ia the oldest American
settler, baring gone there from Sydney
orer twenty yeara ago. Here he haa al
so moved hia English wife, and here he
has a large family of children who are
truly 'natire and to the manner born.'
During their long residence in these far
off isles, the above-named enterpritipg
spirits have been actirely engaged in
both maratime and agricultural pursuits.
They now own adjoining cotton planta
tions, which are being successfully and
prolitahly coltirated. Their craft just
about td tail is to be employed in this
business, and mors particularly in trans
porting laborers and othera from distant
groups to Levuka, for no work can be
coaxed or forced from the native Fijians,
who ridicule the idea of one to degrad
ing himself as to resort to manual labor,
lie haa hia bread-fruit, hia aingle and
seatit garment and hia thatched cot, and

from Solomon's Island and New-Hebrides;
cotton raised is pronounced in
the Liverpool market superior to the
Sea Island, and tbe last crop shipped,
amounting to 9,000 bales, commanded $1
per pound. The soil is a sandy loam,
and clay sub-soil mixed with lava. The
natire laborers on the plantations com
mand 120 per month, and there are
b'oioe 3u00 of them employed on the
isi'snds. Nearly all of the foreigners
are Knglish. In Levuka there are 700
inhabitants, and Methodist, Episcopal
and Catholic churches, besidea a natire
mission. The religion of the nativea ia
mainly ' eo ntrolled by public policy.
Their presen t Chief waa formerly a can
nibal. When coarerted he had 11,000
followers. The human flesh-eating
chiefs are known a - Butchers. Can
nibalism still exists to an alarming ex
tent throughout the iu'terior of Vitelene,

deeds of daring. At these disgusting car
nirals the bodies of natire boys of twelre
to fourteen years of age only are" eaten.
From earliest-childhood they are" fat
tened for the horrid feasts. They are- fed
wholly upon fruits and regetables. When
the day of slaughter rolls round, two
front teeth are extracted from the mouth
of the child. These are inserted in a
club, with which weapon the murder is
committed, the teeth being driven deep
into the skull of tbe helpless victim.
The hnrlr is then dissected, entrails, etc.,

At an early day Grant forbad Butler
to receive any mora prisoners on ex
change. Our poor boys in prison wer
charteriied by Meredith as being "thou
sands of ioathesom skeletons,' and our
commander refused to exchange them
(hat they might lire. .
From the time that Grant refused to
exchange, in April, UC4, Butler said he
sought to accomplish an exchange. But
ler said exchange; the rebel authoritiea
said exchange; but Grant said no, there
ahall be no exchange.
Hia policy was to let them starve as a
measure to pre vest tbe liberty of rebel
prisoners in our own well-provisioned
prisons. The final fatal order
o,' Grant which waa a death warrant to
thousands of our soldiers, waa on the
Ink of August lfC4. which closed the
door f hope to all prisoners.
Our toys had become so reduced by
starvation and filth a to be deemed
rained far future service, and therefore
were cast beyond the pale of humanity
i the eslitnatian of an aspiring general,
wto considered them as dead, and they
were deemed tit only to be left ia th

telegram of Grant speak for itself:

oar me held in Soothers prison, not to

otherwise, become an active soldier at
once, either directly br indirectly. If
we commence a system of exchange
which liberates all prisoners taken, we
will bare to fight nntil the South is ex
terminated. If we hold those caught,
they amount to more than dead men.
At this particular time, to release all
rebel prisoners North would compromise
our safety here.
"U. 8. Gramt, Lieut. Gen."
This inhuman order caused the death
of at least 20,000 men. Butler puts the

The expected trouble has come. Rit
ualism and High Churchism, which hare
ben exciting tbe minds of Dr. Ewer
and his Episcopalian parishioners,
smelted to a white heat last night Ves
tryman were excited. A meeting was
speedily improvised. Charges were
made, supported by affidavits, that Dr.
Ewer had established the confessional.
Dr. Ewer indignantly sent in his resig
nation, with a twelve page letter defend
ingyiis course, and the Church was in a
religious convulsion. I have it from the
best authority that it has been proved,
and admitted by Dr. Ewer, that eight
ladies have been accustomed to come to
daily confessional. This has been kept
a secret An ex-vet try man first made
an affidavit that his wife, a beautiful wo
man, had been in the habit of making
daily confession to Dr. Ewer, and one
of the names of the other ladies came
out Many laymen were fearfully in
dignant and in fact the whole Church
was thrown into a state of consternation
and alarm. Dr. Ewer is openly charged
with the secret intention of quietly car
rring his entire Church over, first to
High Church ritualism, and then to
Catholicism. Dr. Morgan's, Dr. Potter' 1,
Dr. Montgomery's, Dr. Howland's and
Dr. Sabine's churches are greatly agi
tated at Dr. Ewer's confessional devel
opments, and the entire Episcopacy of
the city await with feverish anxiety the
final result. '
