Noyes, Holman A Co. have published a second and revised edition of a ‘‘Topographical and Historical Description of Boston, by Nathaniel B. Shurtleff.” Dr. Shurtleff 1b really a student of Boston, old and new. He has silent the leisure of yours in investigating its history, topography, localities, leading families, famous dwellings, etc. Indeed, from the time when Mr. William Blaxtou selected tho Peninsula for the place of his abode, to the period when the author retired from the mayoralty of the city, we suppose that Dr. Shurtleff has a clear picture In his mind of every change which has gradually transformed a farm Into a metropolis. It was saki of Sir Henry Walton that bls proficiency in foreign languages was so exceptionally great, that he seemed not only to have lived everywhere but to havo been born everywhere. Well, in looking through tho present book, one gets It into his head that Dr. Shurtleff must have been born with tho birth of Boston, and to have been born ngain every fifty or sixty years. He knows each generation of Bostonions as though he had lived among them. From the spare Puritan period to the period of the rosy gentlemen of Madoria, he has watched every change of manners ami mode of living and dressing. There Is not a prominent townsman of the place, from Cotton Mather to Thomas iiaudside Perkins, who Is not one of his familiar acquaintances, and to whom lie could not “introduce” the reader. He knows when and why every old marsh or creek was converted into building land, and every street laid out or extended. There Is no use of trying to conceal any family secret from him, for he heard the talk of tim time, or was, as a physician, directly cognizant of it. In short, the doctor strikes us as Boston embodied and represented in an individual, and we did not know how criminally Ignorant we were of our place of residence until we read his book. And it must be said that tho book is the most readable of all town or city histories that we have ever encountered. We use lite word “encountered,” because, to the general reader, It Is commonly a hard task to fight one’s way through volumes of a similar character. Dr. Shurtleff bas none of the dryness of tho ordinary antiquarian. He disturbs old documents without blinding our eyes with their dust. Indeed there is a prevailing moisture, a juiciness in his style w hich allays all such disagreeable emanations. Then, as we have said, he speaks of the old times, not as a man who has read about them, but as one who bas lived in them. To Bostonians the book cannot fail to be of special attractiveness; but we also think that strangers, who are so unfortunate as never to havo seen the city, would be pleased with It. In fact, though we dislike all exaggeration of statement, we can even conceive of a New Yorker as reading It with interest, now that the Jubilee is over, and he Is no longer Insulted at the Impertinence of Boston In performing a yiyanU-tque feat which his own great city had attempted in vain. It is difficult to convey an Idea of the wealth of matter which Dr. Shurtleff has put Into his fifty-six chapters. We have been particularly interested by his quotations from “Ancient” French and English writers who described the old Boston from varying points of view. But the chapters on points, coves, creeks,cemeteries,malls,public squares,the harbor and its islands, the Province House, the Green Dragon Tavern, the Common, the Public Garden, are laden with curious information. A large map of the city and harbor, and an exhaustive index, should not be omitted In speaking of tho merits of the wmiely octavo, which introduces Boston to Bostonians, and to the “world at large.” Among the early descriptions of tho place, we have been much taken by that of a French Protestant refugee, who came here in 1687, two years after the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes. Laborers, It seems, were scarce at that time. “You can,” he says, “bring with you hired Help In any Vocation whatever; there is absolute Need of them to till the Land. You may alto own Negroes and Negresses; there Is not a House in Boston, how ever, small may be its Means, that has not one or two. Thoro aro those who have five or six, and all make a good Living. You employ Savages to work your Fields, in Consideration of one Shilling and a half a Day and Board, which is eighteen pence; it being always understood that you must provide them with Beasts and Utensils for Labor. It is better to have hired Men to till your Land. Negroes cost from twenty to forty Pistoles (the Pistole was then worth about ten Francs), according as they ate skilful and robust; there is no danger they will leave you, nor hired Help, likewise, for the Moment one Is missing from the Town, you havo only to notify the Savages, who provided you promise them Something, and describe the Man to them, he Is soon found.” Does not this appear like a caricature of the Fugitive Slave Law? You could, In 1687,after you had ventured forty or fifty dollars in purchasing a fellow creature, and be had conclude*! to run away, always find "Savages” to bring him back, provided you paid or promised them “something!” Well, in 1850 and 1851 the same thing was true. The French refugee does not teem to have been favorably Impressed with the morals of Boston at that time. "Tile English,” he say*, “who inhabit these countries are, ae elsewhere, good and bad; but one sees more of the Latter than of the Former, and to state the Case to you In a few Words, they are here of all klnda, and consequently of every Kind of life and Manners; not that disputing and quarreling are common with them, but,they do not lead good Lives. There are those who practise no Formality of Marriage except joining Hands, and so live In Common; others who are sixty years of age, and ate not yet baptized. We have no space to do Justice to Dr, Shurtleff’n book, but we can assure our readers that they will find it as entertaining as it Is Instructive. The volume should be on the parlor table of every house In Boston—and New York! The American Law Review, for July baa been published by Little, Brown & Compony. It contains articles on "Slander and Libel,” “Responsibility for tho Condition of Demised Premises,” and “The Wharton Trial.” Following these comes the decision of tho New York Court of Appeals on the “Rights of Authors.” The “Digest of the English Law Reports,” “Selected Digest of State Reports,” “Book Notices” and "Summary of Events” occupy, as usual, a large portion of the Review. To the general reader, the most Interesting portion of the number is that devoted to tho Wharton trial. Have we a Brinvllliers among us? The writer thinks the verdict of the jury would have been more accurately expressed In Hie phrase, known to the Scotch criminal law,“not proven,” rather than la the F.ngllsh form, “not guilty.” He proceeds to say that “the result of the trial, if the prisoner were really innocent, must have been far from satisfactory to hor. • • Mrs. Wharton’s counsel had not established her Innocence. Indeed they made no very strenuous effort to do so. They were content to emancipate their client from the clutches of the law. Suspicion was not silenced. None of the facts which induced suspicion were encountered aud overthrown.” The writer adds that Mrs. Wharton was probably acquitted because the testimony of the chemical and medical experts, especially the former, called by tho government, was so unsatisfactory. It was not enough, and It ought not to have been enough, that Dr. Alkin and Dr. Torry had satisfied their own minds by producing a very high degree of probability. Their failure was a warning to exerts in all future time to rest content with no amount of investigation which leaves any known test untried. Had they gone on wltii their analysis and actually produced the antimony from the contents of the stomach, liver and kidneys of General Ketchum, Mrs. Wharton might at this time be under sentence of death.” We do not think the writer of this paper explains one thing which has always puzzled us in criminal trials. The theory of Mrs. Wharton’s guilt proceeds on the ground tiiat she poisoned General Ketchum in order to get possession of notes she owed him to tho amount of f2,600. Her intended Journey to Europe was frustrated by the difficulty of obtaining a letter of cretin. Yet the moment she is accused of being a murderess, there appears to be no trouble in obtaining funds. Eminent counsel could not be employed In court for fifty days without charging four or five times the amount of money Tor which she is supposrd to have poisoned General Ketchum. Where did the money come from? SUNDAY SERVICES. PARK STREET CHURCH. In the brief conversational remarks with which, according to his custom, Mr. Murray prefaced his sermon yesterday, he spoke earnestly of the conviction that, outside of Jesus, there was nothing of any worth, which, gathering strength constantly, came home to him with added force as he gained in years and exj«rience, and also noticed with regret the absence of mony communicants, saying cheerfully that only bodies were separated, minds and hearts were not sundered. Then be passed on to the subject of his scrmom, which was suggested by a letter which he had received from a youthful member of tile church, asking how he could remember Jesus, a being whom he never saw, heard or touched. Far from denying the existence of this difficulty, Mr. Murray admitted that It existed more truly in reference to Jesus than to any other man who had ever lived, allice^ while there were portraits aud statues of the Camara, of Plato, Pericles and other rulers and sages of antiquity, Jewish ort, blighted by the restraining divine injunction, had left us no portrait of the Messiah, nor had any of the women who folio we*! in his train, or of the Pharisees and doctors of the law who stood enviously about bim described him in their correspondence ; not one of the t wenty-four hands of his disciples could make a picture of him, nor were ttieir eyes capable of carrying the proportions of that sacred bead. Not until the third century, said Mr. Murray, did Christian art begin to Interest itself about tho portrait of Jesus, and numerous as were the French, Spanish and Italian portraits of him, none were satisfactory, either to our conceptions of the Man of Sorrows, or even In personal beauty. Neither was any clue furnished by the Scriptures, and the description contained in tho well-known letter of Publius Lentulu8 was long ago pronounced a forgery. Of this last portrait of tile physical appearance of Jesus, Mr. Murray said that his soul hod always revolted from It, or from any other, bls Christ being his own, and not that of the artist. He then went on to speak of that which constitutes a portrait, asking whether it was personal appearance, or swift, easy-cnrving, long-flying thought, which uses the body as its instrument, aud to sketch lightly the ideal i>ortralt of the character of Jesus, which should, he said, show all the gentle submission, purity and truth of his nature, milking him all that a man might be, and suffused, as a crowning grace, with the roseate flush of divinity. He then dwelt on the perseverance of divine love as contrasted with the changeable nature of all human affection, saying that no matter what man’s state, no matter what be had been or was, God’s love always kept a door open for bim, his voice always said, “Come.” He,by whom we live and breathe, our Isml mid master, Is not, said Mr. Murray, an official person, all dignity and power and potency, but our Elder Brother, Slightly referring to the elevated influence which this idea would have upon human character and conduct, the preacher asserted that he believed that at last all would tie guided into heaven by the merits of Christ, who made a sufficient atoning sacrifice for our sins. Such being the ease, he thought it should not be said that this man left no portrait. The usual invitation to all strangers present to join in the communion service in the afternoon, closed the sermon. PARKER FRATERNITY. Rev. John Weiss spoke at Fraternity Hall yesterday morning before the Twenty-eighth Congregational Society, upon the subject of Music the Solidarity of Mankind, and said it bas been pleasant during the past few weeks to listen to the musical chords which seem to have been built upon the solidarity of mankind. The word “solidarity” is none the worse for being French, liccause it signifies the religion which cooperates with all classes to elevate all the jieople. Human rights are connected like the great waters of the globe; peninsulas may Interpose, but all tho waves run with their brethren. Exclusive interests may build their breakwaters, vainly laboring to prevent a tide. The result would be a wave to topple and threaten like God’s Ii ais I against the flattered and deceived countries. There Is but one theology that can abolish all frontiers and connect across them the arteries of the human family. It is us bard upon the interests of labor as capital and civilization are, because it must draw such a proportion of its blood from the common people. It takes myriads of veins beating iii tender unison to nourish Its pulse. It can threaten, but It would prefer to invite all classes into the beneficent policy of cooperating In every Industrial and mechanical pursuit, ami in all the mutual deference provkled for man. Disinterestedness disarms revolution, labor will discard strikes, and be ashamed of the tyranny of coercing fellow-workmen as soon as It recognizes the hand of coaration sincerely soliciting its grasp; as soon as the summons is heard: Come and help us do this thing and be fairly repaid; instead of the old feudal threat: Do this thing for us at our rates, or else go, starve. Music is the art which represents the solidarity of mankind. It would bo well for Massachusetts and Boston to understand that they have been the first to give a hint of the divine humanity of music by inviting (he instruments of every land to a mighty concert of harmony. The sound fluttered the leaves of our geographies and rectified our information about isolated countries. America has been first among all the nations in her reverence for work which Is the continual state of the Creator “who worketh hitherto;” It is the thorough lams whose principles harmonize all the hopes of society. Music speaks and claims til ears, not because she addresses the Intelligence or communicates the thoughts which belong to science and literature,but because she ploughs deeper than that and turns up to the vitalising warmth the subsoil of human emotion which lies under the surfaces of all nations, and can be found In place everywhere, and la observed to be everywhere of identical elements. Mnsic has a different style Iii every country; there'are theologies which do not separate but blend, for they defer to the same scientific principle, and have all the same things to say. lf human solid arity wishes to conspire, let It listen to the Instruments and take note how they do It. From the first vague, mysterious and undecided movement that has been their object through all the involutions of the theme, they surrender all their special characteristics which have been slowly forming for more than a thousand years and conspire together for the production of the grand composition of the master. Chorus and orchestra compose a caucus which decides that politics are out of tune and have not learned the concert pitch; they are rejected as unserviceable. Music substitutes one word for all diplomatic phrases and aristocratic, prejudice, and that word is “ cooperation.” Its syllables stretch further than the Atlantic cable, and will never have to be dredged for to repair breaks. It can be pronounced In many keys, but, like a chord, in whatsoever key, It is an instantaneous message. It suggests how treaties may be modified before any parties meet to frame them; before there is any quarrel to be settled. The whole of politics is anticipated by the organization of Industry and thoughts on the ground that they aro indispensable to each other. Music rules man by the deference of all tile Instruments; all the gifts adjust a compromise in order to establish harmony, and that must Im the key-note to the future International politics of the civilized world. CLARENDON7 STREETT BAPTIST. Rev. A. J. Gordon preached in tile forenoon from 2 Cor. 111., 18: “We ail with open face, beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image, from glory to glory, even as by the spirit of the Lord.” Paul teaches by this the contrast between I ne veiled Moses and the unveiled Christ with a face bright with heavenly light, as well as between the readers of a partially-hklden and of a fiilly-re-vealed truth. Ordinary enjoyment depends upon the power of apprehension, upon the keeping of the curtains of sense always lifted. 8o in spiritual things faith depends ujKin knowledge. Intellect, the skylight of the soul, must be kept open if we would know how to believe. Knowledge is tile basis of faith. Our religion must come to us through and from God. Die intellect of the unconsecrated student Is Uke a glass which absorlw the light; that of the Christian should be like a burning-glass, concentrating all the rays of God’* light. Faith Is not merely discernment of Christ, but contact with him. We must have that contact which the eye docs with rays ot light, and so Christ, the object of sight without, will become within us the hope of glory. Hence, the value placed in the Bible upon contemplative exercises, as bringing us into the immediate presence of the Saviour. The text also teaches the assimilating power of beholding. Lite-king companions become like each other by continued contact; so tho contact with Christ makes us like him. There is a subtle photographing of his likeness on the soul. Tho image once formed, the lines are gradually filled up—tho picture Is changed from one degree of glory to another until it comes to lie a perfect likeness, There are those who would copy Christ’s likeness on their hearts by slow processes, but the best pictures of him are tile sun pictures, those made by the light of his own countenance shilling on tile heart. Contemplation of Christ’s love fuses us into that condition In which we flan not fall to take bis linage. Whatever man loves lie becomes, whether it be above or below himself, better or worse. Tile process of assimilation is constantly going on, whether we see it or not. The finest processes of nature cannot be detected, but we see the flower after the bud, the grain after the springing blade, and we see the crudest and roughest Christians liecome in old age transformed into Christ's image, though we could not mark the steps of the development. The text also teaches that, iii Isling changed Into Christ’s image, Christians are made like each other, each retaining his Individuality, but all bearing Christ’s likeness. But will not the perfection of the future life destroy the happiness which conies of progress? Does not the idea of perfection preclude the Idea of progress? No. The circle is round and cannot be made more so, but an increase in circumference is lot inconsistent with the retention of perfect roundness. No the life in heaven, while it will not make the Christian more perfect, will broaden constantly—an ever-enlarging circle, the centro of which is Christ. To those who have not believed the Injunction is: “Look and live;” to those who have believed, it is to continue to look and be thereby changed from glory unto glory, into the image of him who is the express Image of the Father.    ______ HOLLIS STREET CHURCH. Tho forenoon service in the Hollis Street Church was conducted by Rev. Goo. L. Chancy, the pastor. Tile text of his sermon was from Genesis xxxvii., 35: “ I will go down Into the grave unto my son, mourning,” arid Genesis xiv., 28, “It is enough; .Joseph, my son, is yet alive.” These were the exclamations of Jacob upon hearing tho first report of tho death of his son, and upfin learning that that report was untrue and that his son was still living. The former was a natural expression of tile feelings of a loving heart suddenly bereft of one upon whom the heart’s affection centre*!. Tile stricken parent was Inconsolable and life bad lost Its charm. Nothing would satisfy bim but the restoration of the absent one. The feeling of joy was not less Intense, and expressed with equal fervor when the glad tidings of Joseph’s safety and prosperity reached the patriarch, Jesus came to tell the story of Joseph over again in a new form. In the presence of death his affirmation to the mourning ones was: Your friend Is not dead, but Is only removed to a neighboring kingdom where new duties and honors await him. The reality of the life hcaraftcr and Its being open to all were most familiar truths of bls teaching,and were constantly on his lips. The entrance upon that life was never dwelt upon In those terms of dread and uncertainty which has characterized the preaching of the Christian church of all denominations. It was, in his view, liko the opening and shutting of a door. In strictness, it might be said that Jesus treated death with very little consideration. While sympathizing with the grieving ones, he paid no attention to the dead, except as in one or two instances to recall them to life, in order to relieve the feelings of their friends. lait the dead bury their dead, was lits remark on one occasion. Of the brevity of life he spoke, and of the duty to labor while the day lasted, but the Implication of this war that there was the longer period yet to come of which this life was but one day. The words of Jesus were also interpreted as distinctly recognizing that law of God which inevitably brings suffering upon the offender for sin, and with equal certainty brings happiness as the reward of virtue; but these wonts gave no basis to the blea that in the life ttereofter there was no state of probation. Christianity is preeminently the religion that teaches the immortality of the soul. The vital continuance of the soul after death Is the postulate of Christ's Gosjiel. In referring again to tho incidents of the life of Joseph suggested by the text, the preacher said It Is not the body which we see ami associate In mind when we think of our friend that is Indeed dead. We weep over the lifeless form of one whom we have loved, but it Is as Jacob wept at the sight of the coat of his son. The body Is but a garment, us was the coat. The lifeless form is dear to us as Is the picture of our friend, or house in which he lived or the book he gave to us; but neither the house nor the picture, nor yet the endeared body, is tile man whom we loved. The argument that death is the end is an affront to the reason and an of- j fence to the heart. In dosing, the preacher again I compared the departure of our friuds by death to the I disappearance of Joseph as recorded in the chapter from which the text Is taken, and said the affirmation of religion to every one in respect to the de parte* I was similar: “Joseph, thy son, Is not dead, but is alive and sendeth for thee.” _ HANOVER STREET (M. E.) CHURCH. The services in this church were conducted yesterday by the pus tor, Rev. J. W. Jackson. His text was taken from Matthew xxv!., 59-68: “And they that had laid bold of Jesus led Min away to Calphas,” etc. Jesus was charged with crimes punishable with death, and hi the presence of tierce Judges who assailed him with entangled questions. The eloquent silence of Jesus was his defence. His confession appears to us a fearful prophecy cf the approaching doom of hL enemies,while those who trust lu him shall know that they do not lean upon a fragile rood, but on the eternal rock that time cannot shake from its firm foundation. Many are burdened with a erose so heavy that they imagine that they will sink, but let them look upon the patient sufferer who bas suffered Infinitely more, to learn patience in their sorrows. We have often obtained out of silence and our speech much of sorrow that God has not intended for us, because silent where we should have spoken, and because we have spoken where we should have been silent, In alienee and confession Christ has revealed to us the supreme might of his spirit. While Jesus was before his judges be already knew that his death was irrevocably determined upon; his judicial examination was a mere form; that his doom was determined upon before his arrest. Knowing these things, he was silent when questioned by ids accusers, for speech would have been In vain, since every word returned would have served his enemies a* a new proof of his guilt. The silence of a man may testify both for and against him, according to circumstances. The silence of the obdurate sinner Is proof that all ontlcts for escape are cut off, while tho silence of Jesus bears decided testimony against his adversaries. When Jesus speaks he Intends to explain; when silent he abandons the Intention. With unbelievers there is no spiritual intercourse possible; and when the adversary af tacks holy things then is the silence of the Christian the expression of a noble confession that the truth is sufficiently strong In itself to justify even by itself. The silence of .Jesus makes certainly a more profound Impression than would a long oration, for it gives a longer time for reflection. In this way have the faithful always acted; where open confession was desirable, they have followed the example of their master; and where bitter passions have interfered they have preserved a dignified silence, even when exposed thereby to heavy sorrow or led thereby directly to death. It causes a feeling of wonderment in our minds that Jesus should remain silent under the Indignities inflicted upon him while be was upon the cross, but he quickly perceived that iii tills situation silence was the only medium by which to assert his dignity. He knew that every word that he might speak would only serve to excite their anger to new outbreaks. With him it was not difficult to restrain himself, for he mourned more over their sin than ills own pain. But is this fact a stain upon his reputation? Would It appear more glorious to us lf he had summoned legions of angels to destroy his enemies? How much Is it needed that the spirit of Christ dwell in us ? We have to thank the enemies of Jesus that they were the means of revealing the wisdom of Christ. .Jesus has shown bls innocence by his dignified silence. If Jesus had acted differently his adherents would have been perplexed about him, and believed him willing to purchase deliverance from death by the denial of divine personality. True faith grows In no other way in tile individual than by personal testification. If a physician express a most decided faith in his ova medical skill to an Incredulous patient it will have little effect; but if he succeed in restoring to health one who has been brought low by sickness, the doubter will have faith. Thus with a man to whom divine faith has been difficult. While he does not believe in the divinity of Christ he is in the dark. But lf ho will attempt the divinity of Christ and remain faithful, he will see the vanity of earthly things, and learn to long for a divine nature. FIRST PARISH CHURCH, CAMBRIDGE. It was communion Sunday yesterday at the First Parish Church iu Cambridge, and the desk was occupied by Rev. Charles H. Brigham of Ann Arbor. His text was from I Cor., IL, 5: “For I determined not to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ and him crucified.” The s{«akcr said that Paul faithfully kept his resolution. Ills writings are full of that one Idea. Matthew and others were only biographers. They state*! the facts of tho life of Christ, but made no inferences, ventured on no opinions. Paul’s sharp phrases import a flavor of their own to this plain recital of words and deeds. He saw Christ in everything. Christ was the motive of all that he said and did. If we would succeed as the apostle to the Gentiles (lid, we must employ his method; we must determine to know aud preach nothing but Jesus Christ and him crucified. We have all the data that Paul possessed. Christ is better known In the schools of New England than in those of the first apes of the church. The Gospels may be fragmentary. By the confession of St. John they only record a small part of the life of Christ. And yet they are sufficient for all practical purposes. The pscaeher then proceeded to examine this statement, and said: First, these writings give us a clear conception of the human personality of Jesus. Ingenuous theologians may invent theories and endetvor to demonstrate that it was God himself In human form; but their special pleading can only show that the human is divine—for that Jesus was a man no one will venture to deny. Second, tile gospels leave no doubt as to the place aud office of Jesus. Though a wonderful personage, he is in no sense unaccountable. It is as easy to see his place among men us to see our own. He is the teacher, the Saviour. Third, we have enough in these writings for all our moral needs. It is true they do not provide for every conceivable case. Casuists may invent ethanol pussies which would perhaps better find a solution in the dialogues of Plato than in the sayings of Christ. We have no account that Jesus ever indulged in mere speculation. But the spirit of morality which pervaded all his words and acts will lead us to right judgments; and we may infer as to what course he would have pursued even in those situations in life which he never filled. Fourth, in the Gospels we have enough for spiritual suggestion. The Gods and heroes of mythology cannot arouse the soul to action like the simple story of the crucified Christ. Like Paul let us determine that be shall be the first to be know n aud the lust to be forgotten. CURRENT NOTES. Stakeholders—Butchers. A great com looser— Sleep. The law of juries—"Many are called, but few are chosen.” If a woman should go through college and take a degree, could she be a Bachelor of Arts? Why is the figure nine like a peacock? Because It’s nothing without Its tail. As it is tile characteristic of great wits to say much In a few words, so It is of small wits to talk much to say nothing. That most excellent paper, the American Artisan, came to us this week in an enlarged form, and, att usual, with all its matter fresh and entertaining. Central Park, New York, is 867 acres in area, and Phoenix Park, Dublin, one of the largest city parks in the world, is 1752 acres. Mr. Beecher says that “ the ten commandments ara very necessary; nevertheless they are very low down on the moral scale, as all negative things must be.” A San Francisco party has sold fifty tons of barley for which be is to receive two cents a pound if Grant is elected, and nothing if he is not. Often do we think when we ought to act, and act when it behooves us to reflect; hence caution is frequently os fatal as rashness. An advertiser in one of the papers says he has a cottage to let containing eight rooms and an acre of land. The New York Tribune makes the astonishing discovery that “New York is not so large a city aa Brooklyn.” Snuggles says that’s nothing to what we may expect from the Tribune by and by.
