T. DE WITT TALMAGE.
The Sensational Preacher of Brooklyn.
The man who leads all American
preachers in popularity is now ill Europe.
Telegraphic reports are being received of
the astontishing crowds which listen to
him on those great occasions when he
preaches. As his sermons are read in
many laids, public curiosity in the preach
er is readily understood. Talmage makes
such .t stir when he is at home, that no
body is surprised to read of his doings and
talks on the other side of the Atlantic.
lie is a New Jersey man, born in that
state in 1832. His parents had three sons
alreadty inl the ministry, when De Witt
was added to the number of clerical mem
bers of this interesting family. He did
nlot decide to adopt the pastoral calling
until after he was nineteen years old, and
had spent three years in a lawyers office.
But after making up his mind he pursued
his preparatory studies with characteristic
energy. lis stay at a college in New
In runswick, New Jersey, was succeeded
by a course at the New York University,
where he was graduated.
Mr. Talmage's first pastoral charge was
at iBelleville, New Jersey. He remained
there three years, and then removed to
Syractse, where his preaching excited
great interest. His next change of pas
torate was to Philadelphia, where he spent
seven successful years In March, 1869,
hle took up his residence in Brooklyn, as
Ipastor of a church the opposite of pros
Iperous, and the poorest of three which had
been open to his choice; By 1870 his con
gregation were worshipping in a large
fabric made of sheet iron, as the church
had been too large had become much too
small. In December 1872, the iron struc
ture was consumed by fire, and the con
gregation asselnbled in the Acadamy of
Music until Febuary, 1874. when the
newclhurch was opened. This is one of
the largest buildings in Brooklyn, and is
known as the Tabernacle. It is semi-cir
cular in form, the seats so arranged that
all can hear and see the minister, who
preaches from a platform simply furnished
without dlesk. A huge organ behind the
speaker and sometimes the use of the cor
net to leadi the singing, indicate one of
Dr. Talmage's wide departures from Pres
byterian precedent. Six thousond per
sons can be seated comfortably in Dr.
Talmlage's church, and the attendance in
variably exceeds this figure. The present
is thie pastors third visit to Europe.
Six of seven children remain to Dr.
Talmage. His eldest son, a promising
young man, died a few years ago. The
lrcsent Mrs. Talmage, who with his eldest
daughter is now with him in Europe, is
his second wife.

Rossa to the Dynamiters.
LONDON, August 24.-The Pall Mall
Gazette this afternoon publishes a copy of
a letter from O'Donovan Rossa to his dy
namite agents in Havre and Antwerp. In
this Rossa blames the agents for their
present inactivity, and says to them:
"You have plenty of oatmeal and won't
use it." He then commands them to re
commence the dynamite war and arrange
for several simultaneous explosions in
England forthwith. "Red Jim" McDer
mott, Rossa says. is still living, although
there is a standing reward of $2,000 for
his execution. A correspondent of the
Gazette attributes the present apparent
apathy among, the dynamiters to 'the
wrangling between the radical sections of
the party and the moderates. The latter
wishes to give the present Tory prime
minister, the Marquis of Salisbury, a fair
trial, and they contend that the pursuit of
a policy of exasperation against England
just now will hopelessly destroy allchance
of home rule.
