On a certain day a 'number of lavyers
snd literary men were together in th town
ef KuilW'-Uw---
preachers and proachlng. One and anoth
er hod expressed his opinion of. this and
thai pulpit orator, nnd when they , had done
Judgo White spoke up. 1
'Well, gentlemen on this ' subject, each
mnn is of oourse entitled 10 have his own
opinion ; and I musi confess thn Father Ax
Icy brought melon sense of evil deeds, at
least a portion of them, more eff-ctually
ihan any other preacher I ever heard.'
At this every eye and car was turned, for
Judge White "was never known to speak
lightly on religious subjecis, and moreover
was habitually cautious and respectful In hi
remarks upon religious men. The compa
ny now expressed the most urgent desire
that tho Jude should give the particulars,
and expectation siood on liptoo.
"I went one. evening," said iho Judge, 'to
the Methodist church. A sermon was prea
ched by a clergyman with whom I was not
acquainted, but Father Axley was in the
pulpit. At the close of ihe sermon he arose
and said to tho congregation : I am not
going to detain you by delivering on exhort
ation 1 have risen merely to adminisior
rebuke for improper conduct which I have
observed hero to-night.. This, or course,
wakened up the entire assembly, and the
stillness was profound, while Axley stood
and looked for several seconds over the con
gregation. Then stretching out his long
arm and pointing with his fingers steadily
in ono direction, he said, 'Now I calculate
that thoso two young men who wore talking
in ihni enmprnf the house, whilo ihe broth
er wns preaching, think that 1 am going to
talk about them, wen, it is true, u iooks
bnd when well dressod young men, who you

His everlasting love, gel together in one cor
ner of the house, (his finger at nil times
pointing ttady and straight ns ihe aim of a
rifleman,) ond there through tho whole sol
emn service keep talking, tittering, laugh
ing, and giggling, thus annoying tne minis
ter, and disturbing ine congregation, aim
sinning against God. I am sorry for the
foung men. I am sorry lor tneir parents,
am sorry ihey have done bo to-night. I
hope they never will do so again. Bui how-
over, that's not the n.ing t was going to
talk about. It is another matter, so impor
tant that I thought il would be wrong to suf
fer the congregation to depart wunoui aa
ministering a suitable rebuke. Now,' said
Im. airpinhlnir his firm and nninlint? in anolh
l.w, w.w.w Q I V
cr direction, 'perhaps that man, who was
asleep on the bench out tnero wnna m
brother was preaching, thinks that I am go
ing to talk about him. I must confess that
it looks very bad for a man to come into a
worshipping assembly, and instead of taking
a seat and listening to the gospol, carelessly
stretching himself out on a bench and going
to sleep. Il is not only a proof of great in
sensibility with regard to the obligations
which wo owe to our Creator and Redeemer,
but it shows a warn or general breeding. U
shows that the poor man has been so unfor
tunate in his bringing up ns not to have been
tought good manners. Ho dan't know what
is polito and respectful In a worshipping as
sembly, in which ho comes to mingle, f
nm aorrv for the family to which he belongs.
I am sorry ho did not know better. I hope
he will never do so ogoin. Bui, however,
this is not what I was going to talk about.'
Thus Father Axley went on for somo timo,
boxing ihe compass,' hitting a number of
persons and practices that ho was not going
to talk about, and hilling hard, till the atten
tion and curiosity of the audience was raised
to the highest pitch, when finally he re
marked: ,,
'The thinti of which I was going to talk
was chewing tobacco. Now, I do hope wheir
any gentleman comes to church who can't
koep from using tobacco during the hours
or worship, that he will just loke his hat and
use it for a spit-box I x m an mow nm
