i J. H. ESTILL. Editor and Propribtor. 1 CONGRESS TO BE LIVELY. SENATORS PUGH AND HOAR TO BE HEARD ON THE FISHERIES. Army Appropriations and Coast De fenses May Get a Hearing During the Week— Pension Veto Talk to Be Rather Breezy—Tariff Problems Will Busy the Lower House. Washington. July 15.—Senator Pugh, has the floor for a speech on the fisheries treaty Monday and Senator Hoar intends to speak again on the treaty in reply to Senator George. The army appropriation bill with Sena tor Hawley’s amendment providing for the manufacture of heavy ordnance is in an unfinished state, and so is Senator Dolph’s coast defense bill. Both measures have been held in abeyance awaiting the fortification bill, which was expected to embody the extensive plan of coast defense, long under consideration by ■Representative Randall. BOTH MAY BE BROUGHT UP. I Should it appear that Mr. Randall's plan ■is not to be perfected this session, either or ■both of these measures may be brought up ■for action this week. I The resolution to print extra copies lef the pension committee’s report on iretoes is also unfinished business, ■end a good supply of interesting ■material on both sides of the controversy ■awaits an opportunity for exploration. The ■subject is likely to bo brought up in the Buorning hours. | The appropriation committee expects to Brfport back the sundry civil appropriation ■bill and have it printed early enough to he lm its eonsideration before the end of the Break. ■ It is also probable that consideration of ■Judge Fuller’s nomination will bo entered Epou during the week. There is about a Bushel of documentary matter bearing on Ke case and no prediction can safely be Bade as to the length of the debate. i IN THE HOUSE. ■ Indications are that the entire week in ■he bouse of representatives will be devoted B. consideration of the tariff hill and of Bonference reports upon appropriation bills Ht is thought unlikely that final disposition Hf the former will be made for at least ten ■lavs yet. The troublesome wool clause ■l ne is expected to consume two more Buys, and the cotton ties, imported tobacco, ■ottery and internal revenue paragraphs Humain to be acted upon. I There will be several night sessions dur ing the week, at which action may be had Ipon labor and military bills and measures If a private nature. II RESTRICTING IMMIGRATION. Ike Investigating Committee Will H Have Plenty of Hard Work. I Washington, July 15.—The special com liittee on the restriction of immigation, luthorizod by the house, is likely to be ap pointed by the speaker this weok. Mean ■riule another attempt is being made by ■ertain members of the house, who think investigating tour is likely to be an Hgreeable summer trip, to get the number Hi members of the house increased from Hve to nine. Mr. Ford of Michigan, the Hi o'er of the original resolution, who Hi. therefore, likely to be appointed Hkairman. says that the duties of the com- will hie arduous ami fatiguing. The ■[■smitto- will have to visit Boston, New rk and Philadelphia, ami then go out to Pieifie coast. Mr. Ford thinks the mmntee wiil have to work hard to get nil ■i” information to be had at the principal Hot- of entry into shape by the time con meets again to aid it in possible ro- legislation.

His Removal May be Possible the Last of the Week. Washington, July 15.—This has been a quiet day at the Randall residence, and one marked by less anxiety than the two preceding days. Mr. Randall’s condition is better, and ha has regains i some of the strongth lost by him Friday. Since Friday night there has been no recurrences of hem orrhage, and the members of the family aro much encouraged on this account, and are more bright ami cheerful than yester day. Mr. Randall had a good sleep last night, and has rested easily all day, fre quently dosing off in short naps. A MEDICAL CONSULTATION. The three doctors had a consultation in the afternoon, aud Dr. Martin shorily after ward returned to Philadelphia. Both Drs. Lincoln and Waller assured the family that the patient was better tliau be lias been for two days, and should the improvement con tinue ho may be removed from the city the latter part of this week. His case, however, is still considered very dangerous, and it will take a long time to recuperate his diminished vitality. The nourishment given him was slightly in creased to-day and he was allowed to chew some beef and swallow the juice. SHERIDAN'S SICKNESS. Private Advices Pronounce Hla Re covery Improbable. Washington, July 15.—Private advices from Now Bedford are to the effect that Gen. Sheridan has not improved at all at Nonquit,and that on the contrary he is only prevented from getting worse by constant attention on the part of his physicians. Meanwhile, it is stated, ho remains exceed ingly weak, and when a change comes it is expected to ho for the "worse. I Ho cannot recover,” is the way in which this informa tion is summed up. THE OFFICIAL BULLETIN. Norquit, Mass., July 15.—The physi cians issued the following bulletin at 9 o’clock to-night: Gen. Sheridan passed a very comfortable night, sleeping quietly nearly the entire time. He has hud a good day, notwith standing some slight disorder, which has produced no unfavorable symptom of moment. His pulse has been of good ten sion, and his respiration at times has been nearly normal. His cough has not been troublesome. IRISH SYMPATHIZERS PROTEST. Dillon’s Arrest and the Illtreatment of Mandeville Denounced. London, July 15. — Five thousand persons assembled in Hyde park to-day to take ac tion with reference to tho imprisonment of Mr. Dillon and the death of John Maude ville. Resolutions were adopted protesting against the course of the government in the ease of Mr. Dillon, and declaring that the death of Mr. Mandville was due to ill treatment he received while in prison. A PAPAL ENCYCLICAL. Dublin, July 15.—A papal encyclical letter was read to-day in all the Catholic churches in the diocese of Dublin, in it thd pope says he heard with regret that excited meetings had been hold at which inconsiderate and dangerous opinions re garding tho recent papal decree had been uttered, even the authority of the decree itself being unspared. He has seen with pain forced interpretation put on the decree, and statements made that it was prepared without sufficient in quiry having previously been made. Tho pope, strongly denying this assumption, states that the decree was based upon most complete information; that previous to its issuance he held interviews with the Irish bishops on the subject, and sent tried and trusted delegates to Ireland to inquire into and report on the true condition of affairs. AFFECTION FOR IRELAND. His holiness reiterates his affection for the Irish people, and says he has always urged them to keep within the bounds of justice and rights. He refers to a communication to Cardinal McCabe in 1881,.adding: ‘‘As tho people were led fin with gradually increasing vehemenc iu pursuit of their desires, and as there were not wanting those who daily fanned the flame, a decree became a necessity.” The bi-hops, he says, must remove all miscon ception aud leave no room for doubt as to the force of tho decree. The whole system of the pi m of cam) aign and boycotting is condemned as unlawful. A letter from Archbishop Walsh of Dub lin, which accompanied the pope’s letw, was also read. The archbishop says: “The agitation referred to is now ended, under the resolutions recently adopted by the bisbons. Hope has uri-eu within the past few days that before the close of the pns ent session parliament will provide for the more urgent needs of tho hour. The people may await in peace fuller legislation at the next session.” The encyclical letter is dated June 24. It causes intense dissatisfaction at Bray. People left the church during the reading of the letter. ROULANGERISM’S DECADENCE. Hardly 600 Persona at the Rally at the Place de la Concorde. Paris, July 15.—Gen. Boulanger was able to ritje last evening, and passed a good night. To-day his neck i- sonic.v at sf ollen and there is a slight congestion at the base. Ho has no fever. Hardly 500 persons assembled last even ing in tlie Place de la Concorde in response to’thecallfora B mlangeris! demonstration. Ten of those who did up ear "ore arrested, including M.

Queen Natalie has sent to the (Servian premier a letter in wlik-h shosays: “I now iiw.st upon being told of what crime 1 ha >o been guilty.

Some Interesting Stage Scenes Graph ically Described. New York, July 14.—A worse lot of su pers than those who drifted on and off the stage at a notable testimonial benefit at tho Metropolitan opora house in “Hamlet” have never been cursed at and raved at by an enthusiastic stage manager. An 1 I was one of them. There was a rehearsal in the afternoon when the stage for a brief while became the heaven m which these star su pers were dotted. Such a gathering! Such a Babel 1 Wtiy, how are you! Such a time since we met.- I’ve been so anxious to go and see you." Then quickly to someone on tho other side: “For the Lord's sako tell me who I’m talking to; he’s evidently my most particular friend, but 1 cannot for the life of me name him. ” “I was so sorry to read you ban been so ill. How did you catch it aud what w hat was it* Twins? Of all things in the world, how perfectly awful! M'hat improvident people we are.” From tho other sida. “But, my dear, she never could act. I remember when 1 whs play ing Ophelia. Bv the way. I’m awfully glad tney didn’t ask mo to play it for this per formance. The theater is so enormous.” “There’s Mine. Ponisi; why on earth l-n’t sho playing tho Queen?” “Aro yo i play ing anywhere, Madame Dolaroi’” An ambulance and Woodlawn gaze shines in the eyes of the bystanders, and tho speaker continues: “I always admired you so much. You are one of my favorites; I never lose sigiit of von.” Here Mr. Goat cher, the celebrate 1 scenic artist, comes up, glares at two ladies who are seated, and yells right in their faces. ‘ Can’t anyone find a chair for Madame Dolaroi” Tome: “What a shame, and you so ill. The idea of your not having a chair.” The ladies re main imperturbable; disregard Mr. Goat eher’s gentle innuendo. He then proceeds to remind me how he painted the scenes for my first production at my own theater in London. “Court ladies on the stage,” calls tin? stage manager. We troop down and support Mr. Booth; look at him with au expression betokening, “You ought to be very much flattered, you are indeed a privileged j erson to be allowed to head such a galaxy of talent.” Then each star who has tho honor of Mr. Booth’s personal ao ifuaintance steps up and gossips a bit with an air of superiority over tho other planets who are planted a long way from the sun. Here anew arrival says to a man: “I hear you are going to star next season; I observe a hazy halo around your head.” “More like around his chin,” says Mary Selten, calling attention to a day’s growth of scrubby beard w liieh adorns the face of our prize dude, who says to a lady standing near, “I am very hurt a something I heard. I was told when your play was being cast my name was mentioned and you said you would not have me for any thing.” “But there was no part for von and—” “Here, sweetheart,” savs Bob Hilliard to the lady, su Idouly stop; ing re criminations. (Don’t bo jealous, Madame. It was only to S lina Dolaro to whom this affectionate greeting was made.) “When am I to hoar the part in your new play that 1 am to act!” Catherine Rogers, Aunt Louisa Eldridgo. Kate Forsythe, Dora Goldtliwoite, May Brooklyn, were in a frout group talking about their dresses when another call from the stage manager warned us we were expected to act, “Now ladies, at the cue. ‘Our Queen,’all bow,” We do so in a loose, slip-shod fashion. We are a mutual dependency society. So each star says, “When do we go on? When do we go off?” “Oh, watch the others,” says a comforting voice. At this moment Nelson Whoatcroft passes, one of the group says; “Ob Mr. Wheatcroft, I hear you’re a father. Wnatisit! Another Hamlet?” “Ladies,” said courteous Mr. Ben Teal, the stage inauager, “Will you go and choose your dress: Up four flights of stairs to the right." I tell Mr. Teal that not for the wealth of the Indie, could I walk up one flight of stairs, so 1 will hunt up some rags of my own. Can anyone guess what that hunt costme? I had my stage clothes unpacked, and they were spread in confusion before me. Dresses that had been filled by a comely form I threw aside hurriedly, not daring to look at them a second time. How those tats of gold embroidered satin became live memo ries, wringing my heart with pain ar toe vision of past glory and power t liar rose like incense as the fuint perfume of dead pow der pervaded the air! How I had flung off one dress to rush into another, with that, boisterous strength which had been mi me! With what feelings of certain co iquost those bits of poor failed tinsel had been don ned, and now— the crumpled musses strewn around mo were filled with skeletons of my dead hopes! Of all the crowd who looked for clothes on Monday, was there one whose search was as strange and sad as mine? By the way, on looking over my rags, it struck mo my legitimate ward rob < was re markable for its paucity. Tights anil small unmentionable garments were there galore, hut—well, at last 1 sewe 1 up a mantle I used to wear in “The Snake Char mer” into a skirt, mi'l with sundry bits of embroidery and a large rod drapery I man aged to render myself decent. When garbed in this queer mixture i looked iike a cross between un empress and Byzantium B. C. anything and a first witch in n panto mine. 1 dressed at home, took a very ex pensive cab—for which I still owe (confid ing liverymen; bless you!)—and drifted on the stage on the eventful nignt. ] was giv ing greetings to Mtne.Modjeska whe i I re member'd I bail no rouge on, and I wus very mnch kalsomined. Some ladies were there, and I asked if I could have seme rouge. Again the staiis, uguiu l said I could not get up. Mme. Moiljeska took all the trouble to go with me to her room, anil giving me in charge of her tnuiil let mo to complete my painting. How sweetly graceful it vus of her to take so much trou ble for mo at a moment of intense anxiety, for the ta-k of anting in such a perfor mance is no light matter for the nerves. The play began, und we, the 'tar supers, spent a charmi .g evening. We held little receptions in various eorneis. Wo went on at tho right time—by lock —and then faded off. After the soooud act, a member of the press who wuuted to see Mr. Booth came on the stage, and looking about vaid, “Where is Hamlet?” “There are 909 of them on the I). K side,” said A. M. I'altner pointing to all the leading men clustered to gether, and certainly there was not cue man there who would not have made a more creditable performance of Hamlet, than he did of the courtier or guard wli.ch he represented on this oecasion. As for tho 1 women—well. 1 have said, 1 think, thut we were tho worst lot of supers ever seen, and 1 believe I am right. Selina Dolaro. ANDERS ’ LARGE.

Talmage Indorses the Good Advice Given by Paul to the Hebrews- The Poorest Provided With All That Is In dispenslble in Life Earthly Differ ences Only Transitory. Brooklyn, July 15. —The Rev. T. De- Witt Talrnage, D. D., took for his subject to-day: “In Good Humor With Our Cir cumstances.” His text was Hebrew’s viii., 5: “Be content with such things as ye have.” The great preacher’s discourse was as fol lows : If I should ask somo one, “Where is Brooklyn, to-day?” ho would say, “At Brighton Beach, or East Hampton, or (Shelter Island.” “Where is New York to day*” “At Long Branch.” “Where Philadelphia?” “Cape May." “Where is 80-ton?” “At Martha’s Vineyard.” “Where is Virginia?” “At the Sulphur Springs.” “Where the great multitude from all parts of the land?” “At Saratoga,” the modern Bethsada, where the angel or health is ever stirring the waters. Bu’ my friends, the largest multitude aro at home, detained by business or circumstances. Among them all newspaper men, the hardest worked and the least compensated; city rail road employes, and ferry masters, and the police, and the tens of thousands of clerks and merchants waiting for their turn of absouce, ami households with an invalid who cannot he moved, and others hindered by stringent circumstances, and the great multitude of well-to-do peo ple who stay at home because they like home hotter than any other place, refusing to go away simply because it is the fashion to go. When the express wagon with its moun tain of trunks directed to the Cat-kills or Niagara goes through the streets, we stand at our window envious atnl impatient, and wonder why we cannot go as well as others. Fools that we are, as though one could not to as happy at home as anywhere else. Our grandfathers and grandmothers had a* good a time as we have, long before the tir.-t spr.ng wus bored at Saratoga, or the first deer shot in tho Adirondack-.. They made their w< dding tour to t e next farm house, or, living in New York, they cele brated the event by an extra walk on the “battery.” Now, tho genuine American is not happy untnl he is going somewhere, and thepa-sion is so great that there aro christiun people with their families detained iu thecity, who come not to ihe house of God, trying to give people the idea that they are out of town, leaving the door-plate unscoured for tho same reason, and for two months keeping tho front shutters closed, while they sit iu the back part of the house, the thermome ter at niuety! My friends, if it is best for us to go, let us go and be happy. If it is best for us to -fay at home, let us stay at home and bo happy. There is a great deal of good common sense in Paul’s advice to the Hebrews: “Bo couteut with sucii tilings as ye have.” To be content, >? to be in good humor with our circumstances, not picking a quarrel with cur obscurity, or our pov erty, or our social position. There aro four or five grand reasons why we should be content with such things as we have. The first reason that I mention as lead ing to this spirit advised in the text, is tho consideration that the poorest of us have ail that is indispensable in life. We make a great ado about our hardships, but how little we talk of our blessings. Health of bo ly, which is given in largest quantity to those who have never been potted, and fondled, and spoiled by fortune, we take as a matter of course. Rather have this luxury, and have it alone, than, without it, look out of a palace window upon parks of deerjstalking between fountains and statu ary. These people sleep sounder on a straw mattress than fashionable invalids on a couch of ivory and eagles’ down. Tho dinner of herbs tastes better to the appe tite sharpened on a w oilman's axe ora reaper’s scythe, than wealthy indigestion experiences seated at a table covered with partridge, aud vendor!, and pineapple. The grandest luxury God ever gnvo a man is Health. He who trades tliat off for all the palaces of tho earth is infinitely cheated. We look back at the glory of the last Napoleon, but who would have taken his Versailles and his Tuilleries if with them we had been obliged to take his gout? “Oh,” says some one, “it isn’t the grosser pleasures I covet, but, it is the gratification of an artistic’and intellectual ta te.” Why. my brother, you have tho original from which these pictures are copied. What is a sunset on a wall compared with a suuset hung in loops of tiro on the heav en.-? What a cascade silent on a canvas compared with a cascade that makes the mountain tremble, its spray asceu ling like the departed spirit of the water slain on the rocks? Oh, th“re is a great deal of hol low nffoctatio i about a fondness for pict ures on the part of those who never appre ciate the original from which the pictures are taken. As though a parent should have no regard for his child, but go into ecstasies over its photograph. Bless the Lord to- lny, O man! O woman I that though you may be shut out from tho works of a Chiircu, a Blurstadt, it Reubens and a Raphael, you still have free access to a gallery grander than the Louvre, or the Luxemburg, or tho Vatican —royal gallery of tho n onday heavens, the king’s gallery of the midnight skv. Another consideration leading us to a spirit of contentment is the fact that our happiness is not dependent upon outward circumstances. You sen jieople happy and miserable amid all circumstances. In a family where the last loaf is on the table, and the las! stick of wood on tho fire, you sometimes fiud a cheerful confidence iu God, while in a very fine plsce you will sen and hear discord sounding her war whoop, aud hospitality freezing to and -ath iu a cowries* parlor, f stopped one day on Broadway at the head of Wall street, at, the foot of Trinity church, to see who seemed the hap piest people jiassing. I judged from their looks the happiest people were not t'io-o who went down into Wall street, for t.iev hail on their brow the anxiety of the dullin' they expected t.> make; nor tne (xionle who etnio out of Wall street, for they had on their brow the anxiety of the dollar they lmd lost; nor the people who swept by in splendid equipage, for they met a carriage tnat was liner than tin ns. The hjppio-t person in ull that crowd. Judging front the counterin' co, whs the woman who sat at, theupplu stand knitting. 1 Iwlievu real bupplne-s ofteaer looks out of the window of au humble home, than through the opera gins* of tbe gilded liox of a theater. 1 fiud Nero growling on a throne. I find Paul singing iu a dungeon. I find King Alinb going to bed at noon through melancholy, while near by i Naboth win tented in the possession of a vineyard. Hainan, primo minister of Penha, frets himself almost to dentil liecimse a poor Jew wd! not tip his hat; ai.9 Aiiilhophel, one of the greatest lawyer* of Bible times, through fear of dying, hangs himself. The wealthiest man, forty year* ago, In N*w York, when co gr.itulsted over Ids large mtaie, replied; “Ah! you don't knowhow mil' ll trouhis I have in taking care of it.” By run declared in hi* last hour* that Is (tod never *i**u more than t >elve happv day* in all his life Ido not iwileve In, had *uen twelve min hum of thorough •atisfac.lou, Napoiauu X. said: “1 turn with disgust from tho cowardice and selfishness of nmn. i h, !d life a horcr; death is repose. What 1 have suffered the lust twenty days is beyond human comprehension." While, on the other hand, to show Imwone may bo happy amid tlie most disadvantageous cir cumstances, just after the Ocean Monarch had been wrecked in the English channel, a steamer was cruising along in the dark ness, when the captain heard u song, a siveet song, coming over the water, and he bore down toward that voice, and found it was a Christian woman on a plank of the wrecked steamer, singing to the tune of St. Martin’s— “Je9iis, lover nfjmy soul, 1 s’! me to thy bosom fly, While the billows near tne roll, While the tempest still Is high." Tho heart right toward God ami man, we are happy. The heart wrong toward God and man, we aro unhappy. Another reason why we should come to this spirit inculcated in tho text is the fact that all the differences of earthly condition nro transitory. The houses you build, the land you culture, the places in which you barter, aro soon to go into other hands. However hard you may have it now , if you are a Christian the scene will soon cud. Pain, trial, persecution never knock til the door of the grave. A coffin made out of pine boards is just ns good a rosting place as one made out of silver-mounted nialiog any or rosewood. Go down among tlie resting places of tlie dead, aud you will find that tliniig i peoDle there had a groat dif ference of wordly circumstances, noiv they are all alike unconscious. The hand that greeted the senator and president, und tho king is still as the hand that hart toned on the mechanic’s hammer or the manufacturer’s wheel. It does not make any difference now, w hether there is a plain stone above them from which tho traveler pulls aside the weeds to read the name, or a tall shaft springing into tho heavens a* though to tell their virtues to the skies. In that silent laud there aro no titles for great men, and there are no rumblings of chariot wheels, and there is never heard the foot of the dance. The Egyptian guano which is thrown on tlie fields in the east for the enrichment of the soil, is the dust raked out from the sepulchres of kings and lords and mighty men. O, the chagrin of those men if they had ever known that in the after ages of the world they would have been called Egyptian guano. Of how much worth now is the c own of Cip-ar? Who bids for it? Who cares now anything about tho Amphietvonio council or the laws of Lvcurgus? Who trembles now because Xerxes crossed flic Hellespont on a bridge of boats? Who fears because NVbuchiiduozziii thunders nl tli > gates of Jerusalem? Who cares now whether or not Cleopatra marries Antony? Who crouches before Ferdinand, or Boniface, or Alaric? Can Cromwell dissolve tho English parlia ment now? Is William, prince of Orange, king of the Netherlands* No; nol However much Elizabeth may love the Russian crown, she must pass it to Peter, and Peter to Catherine, and Catherine Pi Paul, anil Paul to Alexander, and Alexander to Nicbola ;, Leopold puts the Germans copter into tho hand of Joseph, and Philip oom>* down off the Spanish throne to let Ferdi nand go on. House of Aragon, him o of Hapsburg, house of Stuart, hou-u of Bour bon, quarreling about everything else, but agreeing in this: “The fashion of this world passeth away.” But have all these dignita ries gone? Can they not Im ca’disi hack? I have been in assemblages where I have hoard the roll called, and many distin guished men have answered. If 1 should call tlie roll to-day of some of those mighty ones who have gone, I wonder if Kiev would not answer. I will call the roll. I w ill call the roll of tho kings first: Alfred tho Great! William tlie conqueror! Frederick IT I Duds XVi! No answer. I will call the roll of the poets: Robert Southey! Thomas Campbell! John Keats! George Crabbe! Robert Burns! No answer. I call tho roll of artists; Michael! Angelo! Paul Veron ese! William Turner! Christopher Wren! No answer. Eyes closed. Earsdiwf. Lips silent. Hands palsied. Scepter, pencil, pen, sword, put down forever. Why should we struggle for such baubles? Another reason vvliy we should culture this spirit of cheerfulness is the fact that God knows what is best fur his creatures. You know what is best, for your child. Ho thinks you are not a* liN-ral with him as you ought to be. Ho criticises your discip line, but you look over ihe whole field, and ye i, loving that child, do what in your de illiei'.ito judgment is best for him. Now, Gid is the best of fathers. Sometimes ids children think that he is hard on them, and that he is not as liberal with them as lie might be. But children do not know ns much a* a father. I can tell you wily you are not; largely affluent, and why you have not 1 icon grandly sucre slut It is b cause you cannot, stand the temptation. If your path had lioen smooth, yon would Lave de pended upon your own sure’looteilness; but Cod roug lened tliat path, so you have to tak hold of his hand. if tho wcatlin hail been mild, you would have loitered along tiie water courses; but at the flrt howl of the storm you quickened your pace heavenward, und wrapped around you the warm robe of a Saviour’s righteousness. “What have i done?” says tho wheat sheaf to the farmer, "what have I done, that you bent mo so hard with your flailf” The farmer makes no answer, but tho iuko take off tlie straw, and the mill blows the chaff to the wind, and tlie golden grain fulls down at the foot of tho windmill. After awhile tiio straw looking down Imm the mow upon tho golden grain banked up on eitiier side the floor imderdn ids why the farmer beat the wiieatdioaf with the flail. Who are those before tho throne? The answer came: “The-e are they who, out of great tribulation, huh their rub 's w,idled and made white in the blood of the lamb.” Would God that we could understand that our lrials are the very iiest t .ing tor us. If we had an appreciation of that truth, then wo sh .nl 1 know why it wax that Jo u Noyra, the martyr, iu the very midst of tho flame reached down and picked up one < f the fe .gois that waa c.iisu iimg him, arid kix-ed it, ami said: “Blesxxi be G and for tne time when 1 was born to this preferment." They who snff r with linn on earth shall lie glorified with him in heaven, lie content, then, with such tilings ax you have. Another consideration leading us to the spiri of the text, Is the a surniice that the Lord will provide so.nohow. Wiil he who holds the water in tlie hollow of ins hand, allow hi* children to die of thirst? Will he who owns the cattle on a thousand hills, aud all the earth’s luxuriance of grain and fruit, allow hi* children to starve? Go out tomorrow morning at 5 o’clock into tlie woods and hear the bird* chant. They have had no breakfast, they know not where they will dine, they hive no idea "here they will sup; but bear Lie bird* chant at 5 o’ci .ck in tiie morning. "Behold the fowl* of the nir, for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into burns, yet your iieav only Father feedetb them. Are you not much better than they?" Heveu thousand iseiple in Christ’s time went into thedewrt. Tney were the most Improvident people I ever heard of. They deserved to starve. They might have taken food enough to l ot them until they got back. Nothing ilal tie y taka. A lo<i, who hod more wit thuii all them put together, asked hi* mother that molting for some loaves of bread and somo fishes. They were I*ut into hi* satchel He went out into the de ert. From this provision tbe seven thousand were fed, and the more they ate the larger the loaves grew, until the pw* vision t hat, the boy brought in oue satchel mis multiplied so lie could imt have carried the fragments home in six satchels. “O,” \ou s:>v, ‘Mimes have changed, and the day of miracles have gone.” I reply that, what (rod did then by m raole, he does now in some other way, and by natural laws. “1 have been young,” said I'avld, “hut now am I old; yet have I never seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.” It is high time that you people who are ffetting about worldly circum stances, and who arc fearing you are com ing to want, understood that the oath of the eternal God is involved In the fact that you arc to have enough to cat anil to wear. Again: 1 remark that the religion of Jesus Christ, is the grandest influence to make n man contented. Indemnity against all fl aiiciat and spiritual harm I It calms the spirit, dwindles the earth into insigniti c nice, and swallows up the soul w ith the thought of heaven. On, ye who have been going atxuit from place to place, expecting to And in change of circumstances .some thing to give solace to the spirit, 1 com mend you, this morning, to the warm hearted, earned, practical, oommon-se se religion of the Lord Jesus Christ. ‘‘There is no peace, saitli my God, for the wicked,” and as long as you continue in your sin you will he miserable. Come to Christ. Make him your portion and start, for heaven, and you will lie a happy man you will boa happy woman. Yet, my friends, notwithstanding all these inducements to a spirit of content ment, I have to tell you this morning tho human race is divided into two classes— tho■ o who scold mid those who get scolded. The carpenter wants to be anything but a carpenter, and the mason anything but a mason, and the banker anything but a hanker, and the lawyer anything hut a lawyer, and the minister anything but a minister, and everybody would tie happy if he were only somebody else. The anemone wants to be a sunflower, and tho apple orchards throw down their blossoms be cause they are not tall cedars, and the scow wants to be a schooner, and tlio sloop would like to liens->venty-four pounder, and parents have the worst children that ever were, and everybody has tho greatest mis fortune, anil everything is upside down, or going to lv. All! my friends, you never make auv advance through such a spirit ns that. You cannot fret yourself up; you may fret yourself down. Amid all this grating of tones I strike this string of the gospel liarp: “Godliness with contentment is great gain. Wo brought nothing into the world, and it is very certain we can carry nothing out; having food and raiment lot us therewith be content." r,!t us all remember, if we are Christians, that we are going after awhile, whatever be our circumstances now, t> have a glorious vacation. As in summer we put off our garments and go down into the cool sea to butho, so we will put ofT these garments of flesh, and step into the cool Jordan. We will look around for some place to lay down our weariness; and the trees wil say : "Como and rest under our shallow;” and the earth will say: “Come and sleep in iny bosom;” and the winds will say: “flush! while 1 sing thee a cradle hymnand while six strong men carry us out to our lust resting place, and ashes come to ashes and dust to dust, we will see two scarred foot standing amid too broken soil, and a lacerated brow bending over the open grave, while a voice, tender with all atl'ecti'm and mighty with all-omnipotence, will declare: “1 uni the resurrection anil tho life; he that belioveth in me, though lie were dead, yet shall he live." Comfort one another with these words. DK. HOST’S TRIAL. Mendacity, MDchief-Maklnsr and Dis honesty the Charges Against Him.

The Planters Complaining About Their Poor Receipts. Front, the Quitman, tQa.) Herald. Notwithstanding Brooks has increased her shipments of melons over those of list year at, least ‘JOO carloads, yet the result i l not as satisfactory as was that of tho pro vious season. A number of causes are assigned for this, but the chief one is excessive transportation charges. The leuding melon grower# are, almost to a man, 1 i favor of abandon ing I ho business unless relief from the trans portation companies ia assured. To insure unity in the abandonment of the business, it is suggested that the alliance take charge of the matter. A- the alliance men own nearly all the available melon land, they could refuse to rent to others outside of tho alliance for melon purposes. We doubt tiie wisdom of this course for several reasons, hut mainly for the reason it w< uld offer a tempting incentive to other counties "to increase their melon acreage in tho hope of gel ting fancy prices, thus de rating tiie object of the melon growers of our county. Would it not lie better to hold a convention of the melon growers of Geor gia for tho purpose of formulating a plan whereby their interests tnay bo bettor pro tected, and ut the same time appoint a com mittee to wait on the railroad authorities and see what relief they will offer! One dollar and fifty-seven cents was the amount a firm of melon growers received for one carload of melons recentlv shipped. Tim transportation companies realized i I St, the commission men #ls 40, and the dray men #ll 1H from the same car. John F. Darricott has shipped five caw loads of melons from six acres.
