Hew Dr Jc-hc Slasoa Preached a Thril
Sermon. The gic.it preacher of Jefferson's
'o-V, in 2-Jew l'crk, viis Dr. John

character, if we may believe the
anecdotes still told of him by old
inhabitants of New York. What a
scone must that have been when he

a ay sermon
ing his eyes and hands to heaven,
lust into impassioned supplication :
" Send us, if Thou wilt, murrain
upon our cattl-?, a famine upon our
land, cleanness of .ccth in our bor
ders ; send us pestilence, to waste
our eui(s; scad us, if it please Thee,
tho sword to bathe itself in the
blood of our sons ; but spare us,
Lord God most rnertiful, spare us
that curse most dreadful of all
curses an alliance with Xapolcon
An eye -witness reports that, as
the preacher uttered these words
with all the energy of frantic ap
prehsion, tho blood gushed from his
no.-tiiis. lie put his handkerchief
to his face without knowing what
he did, and, instantly resuming his
gesture, he'd the bloody handker
chief aloft, as if it were the symbol
of the horrors he foretold. Te such
a point, in those simple old days,

I: you are troubled with a per.,
tinacious beg.-ing for a penny, and
are still more perplexed by the
request for periniss 0 1 to spend it
c the candy store, so unfortunately
convenient to your door, try giving
the little coaxer some other plan
for disposing of the money that he
loves to handle. First contrive
sonic way for the penny to be
burly earned, and then piovid
safe place for depositing it, ani
eive the little financier some plea
. an: plan for its use. One little
blue-eyed darling, not yet four
yet tear years obi, has a store of
pennies which aro his "colleg
money," and his eyes sparkle with
pleasure as it increases, and he
talks ubout the grand place where
his big brother li , going soon, and
v, here ho nn. ana to go sometime.
Very early, too, these favored
children can learn the blessedness
of giving of their own to the child
ren of want, and can share in the
Christmas festivitcs with a hearti
ness which only the giver enjoys.

Gen. Braxton Bragg was inter
viewed by a St. Louis reporter the
other day, and expressed himself
on the subject of Jeff, Davis, seces
sion, the Government, &c. We
quote a portion of the account, as
Ileporter I suppose yon favored
General I did. 1 thought, and
think now, that it was necessary for
our lienor. Our institutions were
being encroached upon in a manner
that demanded action. I would
have favored fighting under the old
flag. We were maintaining the
true Constitution, and not the other
side they should have been called
rebels, and not us.
Reporter What are 3Tour feel
ings now toward the Government"?
General I have no Government.
I am disfranchised; that is, I sup
pose I am, as I have not inquired
into the matter, i" take no interest
in it. My property was confiscated
and I had nothing left rue but my
debts, and have bad to work for my
living since the war.
Ileporter Would you fight for
the Government if called upon 1
General Were it a war exclu
sively involving the nationality of
the Government, 1 might. Jam
strictly with my people of the South,
and the circumstances would have
to be extraordinary to induce me to
serve under such a Government as
now predominates. There would
be but little inspiration to fight for
a Government controlled by such
men as Ben Butler and other such
men now in office.
Sir Walter Raleigh on Wine.
Take special eare that you de
light not in wine, for there never
was any man that came to honor or
preferment that loved it, for it
tram-formeth a man into a beast,
d?caycth health, poisoneth the
breath, destroyeth natural heat,
bringeth a man's stomach to an
artificial burning, deformeth the
face, rottcth the teeth, and to con
clude, maketh a man contemptible,
soon old, and despised of all wise
and worthy men; hate it in thy
servants, thyself and thy com
panions, for it is a bewitching and
infectious vice; and remember my
words, that it were better for a man
to be subject to any vice than to it;
for all other vanities ana sins are
recovered; but a drunkard
will never shake off the delight of
beastliness; for the longer it pos-te-?th
a man the more he will
deiight in it, and the older he grow
eth the more he will be subject to
it, for it dulietli tho spirits and

Tun Maine Ice Crop. The to
tal yield of the ice crop in Maine
for the present season, including
old ice on hand, cannot be reckoned
short of 1,500,000 tons, and it may
possibly reach 2,000,000 tons. Cf
this amount probably 300,000 have
been sold or bargained for at 3
per ton, or a total of nearly $1,
000,000. 'ibis price is a remuner
ative one, netting a large profit to
owners, if the rest of the crop is
sold at the same figure, the total
amount realized from Maine's ice
product will be between $4,000,000
I and 3,000,000. To transport this
product to a market will require a
fleet of not less than 5,000 vessels.
To carry away the product of the
Kennebec will require over 3,0u0
vessels, or an average of nearly
fifteen vessels a day from opening
of the river to navigation to its
