Address URPEil BUOTBSSS. New York. PREACHING. [From the Methodist Recorder.] The preacher ia not a mere performer, as if he stood upon the stage before an audience, a . pleaser of men. The mission of the pulpit is entirely misun derstood by some persons who claim intelligence and culture. They seem to hold that the preacher is a sort of public en tertainer, a furnisher of popular sentiment, well worded and tickingly put into itching ears. Ilis merits are measured in proportion ' to his ability to "draw," just as an actor is mea sured. He is heard in a pat ronizing spirit by. people who erect and furnish churches as places where they must be com plimented and amused. It has come to pass that in these lat ter days that a minister is judged as to his efficiency and soundness, by his ability to call forth applause, rather than by his power to lead trembling sin kers to the foot of the cross, oo many pulpits are but sickly imitations of the state, pander inlg to the tastes and passions of the people. There are too many more spectators of form and style, and too few honest hearers of God's word. This state of things is the natural consequence of conducting churches by money, and using ninisters as chess-men in play ii g a game for social aggrand izement and eclat. Who can best fill our church ? , Who can preach the most Ot beautiful sermons? these are the feelers that are put out after preachers at Conference, sometimes, and more especially from among the professedly re fined and prominent congrega tions. A minister is on the aucfion-lilnf'k for a. fflWrlnvH w " J Levery year, for the highest bid der; ana while tnus in the market, he is subject to all sorts of impertinent questions and measurements. He must be felt of, as a horse or hat ; he must walk a bit for a speci- men, pray a sample, give an exact invoice of his family, have his face pecked into by sermon-scenters, submit to a general turning inside out by the too-often indelicate dele gates from sundry districts, and all this in answer to the fundamentally mistaken notion that preaching is a marketable commodity, and that hearing the Gospel is a matter of purses, positions and convenience. When the Methodist people at large shall have learned that the office of the ministry is , heaven-appointed, and that the message of salvation is not to bo received as a mere profes sional performance, but as the very word or. Lite to sinners, free, earnest, and unchanging through all the years, then will preaching have its designed effect. The business of the pulpit is not to pander to popu larity, not to compromise God and mammon but "to reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine." In stead of excusing moral cor ruption, it assails sin in every point and in every person, de mands a full surrender of soul and body to the Lord Jesus Christ, and has not a hint of indulgence in unhallowed pas sion or distorted taste. And when preaching degenerates to anything less than this out- and-out speech of soul to soul, as in the love and fear of God, and in view of the judgment day, it fails of power and be comes a very mockery of hu man wants. Hon. James .Emmitt, of Waverly, had a fracas with a miller whom he discharged, on Thursday tveek, the dispute culminating in an attack upon . Mr. Emmitt, in the course of which he ; was . struck Aon the head with a mill pick, receiv ing a wound which it ia thought will be serious. The latest ad-. vices ' .report . him to', be slowly ;: recovering, although .erysipelas1 had set In. ' " ' WATER OF THE SEA. [From the London Lancet.] Nearly the whole" sea is, four times a day, subject to a change in its level by the movements of, its tides. The motion pro duced by the winds and known by, the name of waves is much less regular. The wind, strik ing the surface of the sea in an oblique direction, pushes some of the water on the surface over that which is contiguous 'to it, and thus raises it above the common level until so much water is accumulated that the wind, is unable to-maintain it in that position, and it falls down. Each wave presents a gently ascending surface to the windward, and a particular de scent leeward. The elevation of the waves varies according' to- the strength of the wind. A, very heavy gale raises them from six to eight feet above the common level; but in very strong gales they attain an ele vation of thirty feet. This mo tion of the surface of the sea is not perceptible to a great depth. In the strongest gales it is sup posed not to extend beyond seventy-two feet below the sur face ; and at a depth of ninety feet, the sea is perfectly still. The form and even the size of the waves vary according to the depth and extent of the sea. In shallow water where the lower part of the waves ap proaches the bottom and meets with resistance, the waves are abrupt and irregular, and this is also the case in confined seas : whilst on the open seas they are wide and long, and rise and fall with' great regularity. When the waves run to a slow shore, the slope of the ground breaks their force and they ter minate in a tranquil manner; but when they are impelled against an elevated rocky coast, being repelled by the rock, they produce what is called surf. This evident rising of the sea on a rocky coast sometimes at tain an elevation of one hun dred feet above the sea level. This surf is always dangerous to pass, except in boats of a peculiar construction. The waves do not subside simulta neously with the wind. The sea continues in an agitated state for many hours. The air being little agitated or none at all is unable to depress the un dulation of the sea, and there fore the waves during a calm after a gale rise higher and their elevated part forms a more accurate angle than dur ing a gale. Such a state of sea is called a hollow sea. SLEEP AND HABIT. [By Macnish.] Sleep is much modified by habit Thus, an old artillrey- man often enjoys tranquil re pose while the cannon are thundering around him ; an en gineer has been known to fall asleep within a boiler, while his fellows were beating it on the outside with their ponder ous hammers; and the repose ot a miller is nowise micom raoded by the noise of his mill. Sound ceases to be a stimulus to such men, and what would have proved an inexpressible annoyance to others is by them altogether unheeded. It is common for carriers to sleep on horseback, . and coachmen on their coaches. During the bat tle of the Nile some boys were so , exhausted that they fell asleep on the deck, amid the deafening thunder of that dread ful engagement Nay, silence itself may become a stimulus, while sound ceases to be so. Thus, a miller being very ill, his' mill was stopped that he might not be disturbed by its noise ; but this, so far from in ducing sleep, prevented it alto gether, and it did not take place until the mill was set agoing again. ,For the same reason the manager of some vast ironworks, who sleptclose to them; amid the incessant v din of hammers, forges, and' furnaces, would awake if. there was any, cessation of the noise during the night. To carry the illustration still further, it has been noticed that a person who sleeps near a'church, the bell of which was ringing, may hear the sound during the whole of his slumber, and be, neverthe less, arousea by its sudden ces sation. Here the sleep must have been imperfect, otherwise. he would have ; been insensible" to the sound. The noise of Lo bell was no stimulus;' it was its . cessation which,, by breaking , the monotony, became ,B0j and . caused the sleeper to awake. THE DEATH OF A DISHONEST MAN. It is all over. He was buried to-day. He did not live to be old, and yet his life was not a short one. He did a great deal of business, and was widely known. The flags hung at half-mast, for his name had been a good deal before the public. Yet nobody respected him. He was not honest; and that was the fatal drawback which always kept him under. He was shrewd enough and smart enough, but he never had any solid substantial prosperity, and the sole reason was because he had no inborn, abiding integrity. Providence so orders things that dishonesty thwarts the most cunningly devised schemes for making money. Were it not so, thieves would become rich ; but thieves never become rich in the true sense of the word. Their gains are uncer tain, and their lives are thrift less as well as unhappy. Apart from all reference to a future state of existence, there is no better platform for this world, no better basis to do business upon, than that of the Ten Commandments. A FEARFUL DEATH. [From the Chillicothe Post, Jan. 9.] On Monday at noon Mr. P. G. Griffin, of this city, went over to Raysville, Vinton coun ty, on the railroad, and on stepping off the car met a man ' named John II. Hutchinson, who had a contract with Messrs. Gaynor and Griffin to cut and deliver 3,000 cords of wood at the Richland Furnace. After a few minutes conversa tion with Mr. Griffin, Hutchin son started off in a southerly direction, and had passed the passenger platform and was crossing the main track when the Fast Line train come along at a furious rate, the engine striking Hutchinson in the side, producing internal injuries which caused instant death. A Coroner's jury was subse quently empanelled, and de livered a verdict substantially coinciding with the above. Mr. Griffin says he did not hear the approach of the train, and supposes that Hutchinson was also not aware of its approach. He was engaged in fulfilling the contract on lands about one mile from Raysville, but his family resides near Petrea, in Jackson county. He was a man of much experience in his business, and- about 55 or 60 years old. A society, has been estab lished in Lexington, Ky., known as the Ancient Order of United Workmen, the principle of which is to furnish a cheap and easy method of insuring their families against misfortune. The society is .essentially be nevolent. Its most remarkable feature is that its members by the payment of one dollar and five cents become insured upon their lives, for the benefit of their families, to the amount of two thousand dollars. A preacher at Burlington, Iowa, says he does not want a Mason, Odd , Fellow, nor a :Democrat in his church. He probably wants, to wrestle with" the devil all by himself.
