Seiimoi Manufactuue in Enomnd.
In England there are persons gen
erally deposed clergymen or superan
nuated schoolmasters who make a
business of writing sermons for the
ministers of . the . various sects, who
thereby save themselves this labor,
and gain timb for. huntingattending
race courses, &c A good composer
can command about five English shil-
tngs per sermon, and tjie ltcctor can
well afford this, as his living comes
by tithes, out of the public. . Some ser
mon makers can cam twenty or lhir-
ty pounds per year by tho business.
INo matter what arc tueir private
doctrines or characters, be they infi
dels or knaves, if they can but writo
sermons conforming to the standard
doctrine of tho Church, and they are
tolerably well written, so as to be
mad without dilhculty, they are suro
to hnd clerical purchasers. Kcv. l)r.
Trusler made o,uito a fortune a good
many years ago by having a facsimile
ofn sermon composed by him, engra
ved on . coppcr-pJate from which ha
took a great many Impressions and
sold them all over the kingdom to clcr
gymcn, who preaencu inem to tueir
. a m.a -I
congregations a their own. , '
The eccentric but pious Kcv. Row.
land Hill tells, in his Village Dia
logues, (vol. ii. 1 37.) a pretty anecdote
illustrative oj" the danger of too many
clergymen ' purchasing copies of tho
eamc Bcrmon for deiitery. It is ns
follows:"' ; " t " ' '' ;
"An egregious blrrnlcr once hap
penod even In the famous University
of Cambridge at what' Is commonly
called tho Sound church; Dr. Trusler
has A notable sci moo on those word ,
'Sou that yo fall not otit by the way.'
And so it fell out that it was preached
by ditlcrcnt -ministers in tho tame
Sound church lltreo Sundays running.
Tho clerk on tho fourth Sur. Jay ad
monished tho preacher not to give
them a fourth edition of ''See that yc
fall net cut by the way," for tu at par
ish was all very peaceable. ,
' fuc "reply was that he had no other
in his pocket, so that the popJd must
hear that or nont.. Tho reader would
not dispute the probability of this an-
ccdoto if he knew after what sort of
a fashion the churches in and cbout

OtAu-TELEoBArii. For many years
Morso, tho inventor of tho Magnetic
Telegraph, struggled in darkness and
obscurity, wbilo i hu endeavered, to
make tho world bolicvo in bim, and
tho idea ol his life. And for many
yenrs he struggled - in vaini - Thore
wero plenty of sagacious men, full of

that he was a drcamcrf that lus idea
was good but Impracticable; that he
had belter givo it up at onc.c, nnd be-
take himself to something in tho way
of stock speculation, or try his hand
atDryCoods. Morsn, having no fear
of "common eensu" beforo his eyes,
steadily pursued bis way, nnd now
the wholo world rings with his name,
uttered with the same breath with tho
name of Fulton and Franklin. j We
were forcibly reminded last Saturday I
of tho struggles nnd success cf Morse, I
while conversing with n gentleman, J the shore. A diver may, with lmpu
who has discovered a means of conv I nity, plungo to a certain depth of ihe
mumcatingsound even tho sound of j
the human voice by efectrcity, in I
the same degree that iho Telegraph
now communicates written ami prin
ted-lancruap-c. ThiS; discovery will
enable a man in Uusto't, to hold an
nctual, spoken conversation, with his
friend in IN'cw Orleans. The sound,
the very tones and nccounli of the
voice, will bo transmitted from one f nd
of Iho globe to the other by means of
electricity. f Peoplo w ill talk by light-
