The qneation is agitated among church-, going pcoplo, "Why aro so many learned ministers poor preachers ?" . The trouble is that many of the learned ones rs content to load themselves with mighty stores of knowledge, never thinking ol how they are to benefit their fellow men by giving it out. Unfortunately, soma of our most learned clergymen are ths driest of preachers. To learn or prac tice the ordinary srti of oratorv does not seem to have occurred to these good men. The art of pleasing their audi onoes is something to which they can not conveniently descuud. Perhaps they do spiso it because there aro so many empty-headed men who have succeedod in holding their congregations spell bound. They may think that to interest an audience is an evidence of sensation alism. Therefore, they are content to plod on in the delivery of matter which is rcully valuable, but which loses its vnliio bocauso uttered in such s lifeless fashion. I Ono of our most learned preachers used to havo a habit of meandering along in a sing-song mouotono for the lirst fifteen minutes of his discourse Tim effect on strangers was to weary them or put them to alecp, under the impression that the whole discourso was to be delivered in this stylo. On those who were accustomed to hearing him it was difl'oroiit. They know ho would havo something of interest for them, and ! waited for it. After while he would wuko up to a most earnest styio of do livery und continue in it to the end of his sermon. Some great scholars are so pompous that they can not preach as if to ordi nary mortals. Home preach fairly well, but, bocauso they aro such great men, do not atop short of an hour and a half. This may impress tho weary hearers with a hcpso of greatness, but at tho Kaiiie timo oppresses them with the ponderousuess of it. Learning and good oratory aro not necessarily out of harmony wilh each other. There is no reason why a learned person should not add to his other ac complishments the art of imparting his wisdom to others in tho most graceful, attractive, and convincing viay.I'hila dcljihia Times. k Carious Clock.

Works on gardening give plans for laying out tho ground certain bods to be put in ono place, with paths hero and there. This is all well in order to make tho most of a small piece of ground. With the farmer's garden the case is different, as there lire tow farms where a square rod or two more or less in tho garden is of importance. Iu such a garden there should be very few beds, but all tho larger vegetables should be placed iu long, straight rows, in order that tno working may uo dono, so lur as practicable with ft horso cultivator. Tho permanent beds, such as those of rhu barb and asparagus, should bo near one another aud at one side of tho land to be occupied by the annual crops. In sow ing or planting it, the cultivator used upon the farm is also to do work in the garden ; this i s to bo borno in mind in laying out the rows, which should be at such distances ns will allow of tlio pass ago of tho implement.

I had for several years been the victim of Chronic Di iirrlupa. The esharniing discharges, and ahience of assimilation of fond, with painful ulceration of tho bowels, had reduced mo from vigorous health to an almost hopeless cmmijon. My phy sician advised a trial of the celebrated Bailey waters. In a few days after my arrival the functions of the liver nnd Kidneys were favorably affected, my digestion became comfortable, the ir ritable condition of my bowels rapidly disappeared, and a comfortable state of hoalth soon estahlised. This occured two years ago, and I have ever since en joyed good 'health. I attribute my re covery entirely to the medical virtues, of Bailey Spfing..SVery Bespectfullv.l D. S. MALONE.

This condition is dangerous, because of the liability to contract serious dis ease at a time when nature is less liable to throw it off ; and an ef fective remedy, such as Brown's Iron Bitters, should be promptly used.

Tnr.RF.is nothing in this world so pure and utidol'ilcd as tho love of a lawyer for hiH client. A recent caso in this city proves this. Tho lawyers won a lug caso for their client and got him a pile of money, and, with a generosity never before heard of, they have insisted upon not keeping above half of what they re covered, for thoir own use, and have compelled their client to take tho othor half. Never naiu let it ha said that it is bettor to lone all than to go to law and ro oovor everything. Fall liiver Advance. It is generally bolieved that 'a Mr, Richardson, of Now Jorsev. first intro duced lung plague from England, in a shipment of short-horns, and, discover ing tho true nature of tho disenso, stumped it out by the slaughter of his wluflo herd, valued at $10,01)1). A sequel to this is that some of the neighbors had thoir stook infected by using the hny tuken from a barn whore the diseased cattle had boon. Thore are, however, no recorded facts by whioh this story can be corroborated. TnoF. DcForB has presented a new and interesting proof that the earth is round.
