Church nt 1'iitiiry. (Continued.)
During the year 1801, (the year subsequent
to the dismissal of Mr. Remington from the
pastoral charge of this church,) there was for
tho first time in its history, a very important
nnd profitable revival of religion enjoyed here,
resulting in tho addition of twenty-six mem
bers by profession, and very materially increas
ing its religious strength nnd influence. In
deed, considering tho time nnd the surround
ing circumstances when it occurred, tho fruits
ol this revival wcro very justly considered of
great value to the church. In no one year be
fore had there been as many added by profess
ion. From tho time of Mr. R.' dismission,
(February, 1803,) until June, 1807, the church
and society remained without a settled pastor j
their pulpit being supplied by several different
ministers each one for a longer or shorter pe
riod, while they were passing through several
phases of peace and contention, of harmony
and disorder. Finally, at the time above stated,
(June, 1807,) the Great Head of the church
sent them one who was destined, during a pas
torate of twenty-two years, to prove an inval
uable blessing to the whole community. This
worthy and excellent man was Rev. Elisha An
drews. Very shortly after his settlement all
discord and contention were laid aside, and un
der the reign of peace and harmony that suc
ceeded an unusual degree of prosperity was
enjoyed. From the organization oi the church
to the beginning of Mr. Andrews's administra
tion, it appears from records left behind by
him, that there had been ninety-two members
added to it by profession and letter) but dur
ing his ministry of twenty-two years there had
been not less than two hundred and fifty added,
more than half of .whom were admitted during
one year, as the fruit of one great and general
revival. This)ccurred in the year 181G. Hut
previously to this, during the first four or five
years of his pastorate, the church was blessed
with some seasons of gentle spiritual refresh
ing, the results of which wcro the addition of a
goodly number to her membership, and much
vigor and prosperity. Rut the year nbofe
named seemed to be the great timo of spiritual
favor for this little branch of the Savior's fam
ly. Early in that season the previous work of
preparation seems to havo culminated, and a
powerful and wide-spread work of grace com
menced in this community, which resulted in
the conversion of many from sin to holiness,
and from satan unto Qod. Then, throughout
the greater part of that season, religion seems
to havo been the one great subject of general
and personal interest. The pursuits of world
liness and vanity wero to a great extent with
drawn from prominent view, and the present
and everlasting welfare of the soul appeared to
engross tho attention of almost every one. Tho
Divino presence was felt, and the great truths
of religion were a realization to many hearts.
The immcdiato fruit of this most benign work
of grace was tho addition to the church of one
hundred and fifty members, eighty of whom
wero received at one lime. That Sabbath was
a memorable one in the annals of Putney.
Tho increase of members, however, was not
the only advantage resulting from this Divine
visitation. The church was greatly increased
in its spirituality and strengthened in its influ
ence for good. Thus under tho ministrations
of that faithful pastor the church continued to
flourish, a bright beacon-light to all the sur
rounding region. Nevertheless, like all other
such organizations that havo enjoyed similar
blessings, it also experienced seasons of declen
sion, when tho abounding of worldlinesi and
sin would return and the love of many would
wax cold. Yet on the vrhole, piety flourished
in many new hearts, and Ood was truly honor
ed in many lives. M.
SECItETAItY SEWARD SENDS GREETING TO
Europe. Secretary Seward's speech to the
enthusiastic crowd who visited tho State De
partment on Monday, to congratulate him on
the fall of Richmond, was quite significant :
I thank my fellow-citizens for tho honor they

plause.) What shall I say to the Sultan of
Turkey f i snail manu. mm lor always having
surrendered rebel insurgents who had taken
refugo in his kingdom, (Cries of 'that's it,' and
cheering.) What shall I say to the Emperor
of tho French ? (A voice 'to get out of Mex
ico.') I shall say to tho Emperor of the French,
that ho can go to-morrow to Richmond and get
his tobacco, so long held under blockade there,
Jirovided the rebels havo not used it up. To
,ord John Russell I will say thot Uritish mer
chants will find tho cotton exported from our
ports under treaty with tho United States cheap
er than cotton obtained by running tho block
ade. At for Earl Ruisell himself, I need not
tell him that this is a war for freedom and na
tional independence and the riohts of human
nature, and not a war lot empire aud if Great
Britain should only bo just to tho United States,
Canada will remain undisturbed by us so long
as she prefers tho authority of tho noblo queen
to voluntary incorporation into tho United
States. (Cheers, and 'that's tho talk t you're
right.") What shall I tell tho King of Prussia?
I will tell the King of Prussia that the Germans
have been faithful to the standard of the Un
ion, n his excellent minister, llaron Gerolt, has
been constant in his friendship to tho United
Stntcs (luring his long residence in this coun
try. (Cheers.) To the Emperor of Austria I
(hall say that lie has proved himself a very wiso
man, for he told us in tho beginning that ho
had no sympathy with rebellion anywhere.
I do not doubt, fellow-citizens, hut that at
least you accedo to tliu theory by which I havo
governed myself during the war, namely, that
the rebellion will end in ninety days. (Cheers
nnd laughter.) I have thought this the true
theory, because I never knew a plnsician able
to restore his patient to health unless he tho't
he could work a cure under the most unfavor
able circumstances in ninety days. (Renewed
laughter.) Finally, if tho American people ap
prove, I will say that our motto in peace shall
be what our text has beer, in war. Every na
tion is entitled to regulate its own domestic
aliairs in us own wav. and ail arc bound to
conduct themselves so as to promote peace on

Whereas, in the courso of inhuman Yankee

America no longer attorus an eligible anu
healthy residence for tho members of the pres

trate himself, tho vice president, nnd tho mem

therefore by the virtue of tho power vested in

the confederate states government, nnd to take
up with such agreeable quarters as may yet bo
Uranted unto mv.
To such persons ns aro in arms against the
confederate states ot America, 1 uo hereby ten

forthwith desist from annoying cur patriotic

lio.d better bo abolished. The capital of the
confederacy will heucefonvard bo found "up a

brated "Last Ditch." To the foreign subscrib
ers of the confederate loan I return sincere
Ihunks. Mnj. Gen. Grant, U. S. A., will please
sco that they get their cotton. All persons
ha ring claims against this government will
please present them to A. Lincoln, Richmond,
by whom all such accounts will be most cheer
fully audited. It is not altogether improbable
that tho glorious experiment of a slaveholders'
confederacy may yet prove n delusion and a
snare. 1 nave olten thought so. bo lias uen.
Lee, who has lately been fighting mostly for
his l ost year's salary. The confederate treasury
being light, I think I will take it in my valise.
Gen. Lee thinks that wo have a good opening
before us. and that we have seen tho last of this
fratiricidal war. I hope so. Stephens thinks
peace more imminent than ever. If the United
States uersists in relusing to recognize the con'
fedcrccy, on my return I shall again urge the
arminj; of the negroes. Office seekers nre re
spectfully solicited to cease their importuna'

THE REBEL BUItNI-NO OF MOSCOW.
Rut tho city was burning down i had been
burning three hours. To prevent large quan
tities ol tobacco and other stores from falling
into our hands, on tho direct order of Urcck
inridire. millions of private nronertv were sub
jected to the flames, and one of tho fairest ci
ties on the continent ruincu. lnueeu, it is said
lhat Breckinridge, in person superintended the
great arson, and only left by the last train 20
minutes betore we came in.
That tho entire city was not destroyed is duo
entirely to the Union army. Tho first order
issued wai for every exertion to be used to stay
the conflagration, while regiment after regi
ment, without orders other than from their own
officers, stacked arms, piled knapsacks, and lent
willing and tireless energies to save the prop
erty of their enemies. Whole squares were
tumbling ana smouldering to ruin, anil when
the flames were extinguished, the debris and
tho smoke, the crumbling walls and the totter
ing chimnics of a thousand structures, many of
them costly, all ot them valuable, testified to
the relentless cruelty of the rebel authorities
unpityingoven to their friends and their dupes.
Included in the destruction aro the largo mills
and warehouses on tho river, and the entire
business part of the town.
rlI.LA01.NO AND APPROPRIATING.
During Ihe night, the stragglers from tho re
treating army inaugurated n reign of terror and
pillage. Jewelry, clothing and liquor stores,
and a few private houses, were sacked. The
firo rovealed immense amount of provisions
whether the accumulations of the government
or ol speculators, docs not appear, although
citizens say the latter. Thousands immediately
engaged in the scarcely reprehensible work of
removing to their houses family supplies. "The
niggers got it all," said a leading citizen, with
a wrath he mado littlo attempt to conceal. I
do not doubt they "toted off" largely. Hunger
stimulates thrift, and there was no "fear to re
strain. Meanwhile, the moro substantial citi
zens, the actual sufferers by tho wanton destruc
tion, looked on with apparent unconcern ap
proachinjf apathy. They have been too sternly
disciplined these last four years to exhibit any
I entered tho city by the Newmarket road,
the samo over which the troops advanced.
There aro seven distinct lines of fortifications
very formidable, but no more so than those
encountered at Petersburg. Nearly all were
overgrown with last summer's vegetation, while
some' wero badly washed by late rains. The
enemy removed nono of the neavy guns their
black forms dot the parapets, and you look into
their black throats as you approach the city.
Nor does ono turn aside from the road lest his
step explodo a villainous torpedo. Several of
iho first lines ore strengthened against assault
by a new device, in the nature of a chevcaux de
Jrise. faharp hewn stakes, 6ay eight feet long,
aro driven through n lone Dole in such a wav
that four to six rows of them project from a
common center, like spokes from a wheel. In
deed, tho device may le described as ono long
hub extending miles, resting on long sharpened
spokes, while tho remaining spokes project into
tho air radiating so thickly that ono cannot
creep through ; while if he should be able to
roll the thing over, he but turns up other spokes
to meet him in the fate.
AN INCIDENT PROPHETIC.
Nearly all the houses on the way had been
abandoned, yet two miles out of the city a man
was plowinp in a mignificent field stretching
along tho river bottom, and I was told began
betimes Monday morning the day after tho
NAVY YARD 1RON-CLADS.
Near "Rockets," a mile below the city, on
either side of the river, are tho smouldering
ruins of their Navy Yard, and several of their
rams and gunboats. One of them would have
been launched within a fortnight.
Passing up Main street, at the left wero the
crumbling walls and tottering chimneys, and
tho smoke still rising from the debris of the
great fire. At tho right, the sidewalk covered
with negroes and poverty-stricken whites, timid
women peering from the windows, or bolder
ones injintidy garb standing in tho doorways,
or the doora were closed and the blinds shut
the denizens gone or hiding within. At length
forced by the cumbered street to turn into an
other, tho signs attracted my attention.
A BEAUTIFUL CITY ONCE.
Tho street I was following led me to the
Capitol grounds and as I strolled through tbem
and looked out upon the city for tho Stato
House occupies a commanding bite I thought
that beforo treason and war and sorrow came
with their black wings to hover over and settle
down upon tho place, it might have passed for
tho "city which is called beautiful,' it must
have been fair and lovely.

VISIT OF THE PRESIDENT.
President Lincoln's visit, coming so goon af
ter the occupation, was a matter of intenso in
terest to the entire population. Crowds
thousands rushed out for a glimpse ol his tall
figure as he walked into the citv ntii-m!p,l i.
few friends mid an escort of a score or two of
ouiunio. tun uiuiiusiusin was, nowovcr, con
fined to tho negroes, tho foreigners, and excep
t onal Virginia-born citizens. Hut the joy of
tho negro knew no bounds. It fouud expres
sion in whoops, in contortions, in tears, and in
cessantly n prayerful ejaculations of thanks.
Iho President proceeded lo Gen. Wcitzcl's
headquarters, the late residence of Jeff. Davis.
I do not imagine ho went there for the sako of
any petty triumph, but simply because It was
tho headquarters of the General commanding.
Many officers and citizens of Richmond came
to pay thejr respects, after which ho rodo about
(he city. Ho slept onboard one of the gun
loots, and last night returned to City Point.

DESTITUTION IN THE CITY.
1 cannot ascertain that thero has been any
thing npproaching actual starvation, and. jet
everybody was pinched lo the last degree. Cer
tain letters which I append, addressed to Gov.
Exlra-Ililly Smith, and found in his house
which, by tho way, belongs to tho State, and is
occupied by the successive governors are evi
dences of what exlraordinary exertions wero
necessary, even in tho Governor of Virginia, to
supply his family, and howthankfully smallfa
vors wero received. There are but three out
of a score, all relating lo the question of the
Governor's daily food, and the raiment where
with to bo clothed. As to clothing, notwith
standing yesterday nnd to-day have been very
warm, it is remarkable how universally such
ladies as appear on tho streets have worn heavy
furs. The reason would seem to be that costly
furs nro very respectable, and despite the op
pressive weather, are worn in default of other,
garments that ore respectable. With both gen
tlemen and ladies the dillcrcnt articles of cloth
ing comport badly, an elegant coat and a
shocking hat, boots out at the toes and fine
cloth pantaloons, and elegant silk dress and
cashmcro shawl nnd a horrid old bonnet. Nor
could either the gentlemen or the ladies refrain,
in conversation, from hinting that they onco
wero arrayed in purple nnd fine linen, and fared
sumptuously every day.
At a recent discussion in the Baltimore Con
ference, on the subject of Slavery, ono of its
members, J. M. Bull, declared that ho had as
much faith in Ihe divinity of slavery as he had
in the divinity of Jesus Christ. Mr. Hull sub
sequently explained, that he meant by tho ex
pression, that he thought slavery as clearly
taught in the Bible ns the divinity of Christ.
His case was referred to a committee who sub
sequently reported that the expression used by
Mr. Bull would be highly reprehensible under
any circumstances, but especially in a confer
ence of Methodist preachers ; that the senti
ment is one that ought to shock every mind,
and that any person entertaining it was unfit to
be a member of the conference. They recom
mended the passage of the following resolu
Resolved. 1. That it U the judgment of this
conference that Brother Bull ought to looate.
2. That if he refuse to do so, the bishop be
and ho is hereby respectfully requested to rep
rimand him in open conference.
The report nnd resolutions were adopted by
a voto of 27 lo 23. Mr. Bull declining either
to locate or submit to a censure, a resolution to
expel him was moved and adopted, only, eight
voting in the negative. He gave notice of an
appeal to the General Conference.
National Wit. Italian wit is highly dra- s
malic, spontaneous, genial. Among its prov
erbs nre : "The dog earns his living by wagging
his tail." "Make yourselves all honey, and
tho flies will devour it." "Tho smiles of a
pretty woman are the tears of the purse." "Ho
who takes an eel by the tail, or a woman by
the tongue, is sure to come off empty handed."
The characteristic of the Spanish wit is excess
ive stateliness. Of their proverbs, "Ho who
has nothing to do, let him buy a ship or marry
a wife." "From many children and little
bread, good Lord deliver us." "A fool is nev
er a great fool unless he knows Latin." French
wit is characterized by finesse, brilliancy, dex
terity, point, brevity. In repartee tho French
are unrivalled. Their conversation is not only
on art, but a fine art. In punning they aro
unequaled. In no literature nre there so many
proverbs which speak so disparagingly ol the
fair sex. "Man is fire, woman is tow tho
devil comes and blows." "A woman conceals
only what she dosen't know." "To get chick
ens one must coax tho hen." "Scratch people
where they itch."
Cheap Lands in Kansas. C. C. Hutchin
son, United States Indian Agent, Ottawa,
Franklin County, Kansas, says the lands of the
Indian Reservation in that county aro now for
sale at 81,75 to $2,50 per acre for farm and $G
to $10 for timber, in the midst of a good set
tlement, 25 miles south of Lawrence. Tho
soil is deep, black, and good for wheat, oats,
corn, hemp and tobacco. Wood sells at $2,50
a cord, and coal at 25 cents a bushel. Lime
stone, sandstone, and coal crop out on tho land.
The surface is rolling but not hilly, and well
watered with running streams. Forests are of
oak, black walnut, hickory, hackberry, etc., on
The Swiss Republicans. A lady who re
sides in this city had a letter recently from her
mother, living in the city of Geneva, Switzer
land, which states that regularly, in the church
she attends, prayers are made every Sunday for
the sweess of the North in its struggle against
a wicked rebellion, for the continued health of
President Lincoln, and the speedy extinction
of every vestige of slavery from the great
American Republic. This is a beautiful and
touching incident, showing how the hearts of
tho honest lovers of liberty everywhere go with
us, while tho defenders of privilege, inequality
and inhumanity carry their sympathies to tho
other side. Evening Post.
Important to Oil Diggers. Mr. S. Lc
land of tho Metropolitan Hotel, advertises in

strument now in uso for sinking oil wells. Ev
erything necessary to the process, excepting of
courso the steam-engine and driving.pipe, is
comprised in this machine, which has been
tested practically in tho oil regions'of Pennsyl

many advantages aro succinctly and clearly

Small Currency. A law was passed du
ring tho closing hours of Congress to authorize
the Coinage of three cent pieces, to be com

vides that the three cent pieces shall be legal
tender to the amount ot sixty conts, and that
the ono nnd two cent copper coin shall bo le

also prohibits tho issue of nny paper fractional
currency below the denomination ol five cents;
consequently, the new three cent notes, being
illegal, must be withdrawn from circulation.
