From the . In card of Domestic missions and the assistant controversy which has been started in relation to the office of assistant Secretary of the Board of Domestic missions seems Likely to engage More attention than any one anticipated at its introduction into the general Assembly at new Orleans. The editor of the presbyterian Banner and advocate being chairman of the committee of the Assembly appointed on the annual report of the Board we presume from the part which he has since taken in the matter first introduced it into the committee and it was brought before the Assembly in their report. The Assembly after Dis emission referred the question of abolishing the office to the Board of missions very prudently deeming the members of the Board who were supposed to be familiar with its operations and practical wants Best qualified to judge of the propriety of the change proposed. The Dimind of the Assembly unquestionably was that the decision of the Board should be final in the Case and that All reasonable persons would be disposed to acquiesce to which Soever conclusion the Board should Home. On Reading in the presbyterian the report of that me Ting of the Board held on the 28th ult., expressly for the consideration of this matter i supposed that the question was finally disposed of and that we should hear no More of it. But on receiving the Banner and advocate of july 10th, also containing an account of the proceedings with the remarks of the editor in connexion therewith it appeared that there was a disposition to continue to agitate the question. Why should not the de vision of the Board itself the most competent tribunal be final ? what is to be gained to the cause of Domestic missions by con tinning the agitation ? the very competent tribunal to which the matter was referred has decided that the office cannot be dispensed with at present and the worthy brother filling the office is both compete t and faithful. Even the editor of the Banner and advocate says that the resolutions endorsing the Fidelity and ability of the incumbent and vindicating him from unfounded aspersions and suspicions were adopted nem. Con. Can any one be the Friend of the Board whatever he May pro fess who is fomenting an agitation which will take from its funds in any one year More than double the amount of the Secretary a salary by affording Only a plausible excuse to theme to withhold their contributions who at All times and under the most favourable give reluctantly ? is this Contr sued agitation Only another evidence of the bad Grace with which some men submit to defeat and to be overruled in projects of which perhaps they May claim the paternity ? the matter is brought before the Assembly a committee on the report of the Board that committee con. Sent that it Ahall be brought before the Assembly it so far meets with favor that the Assembly sends it Down to the Board of missions that if they deem it advisable they May abolish the office. A majority of the Board say that the office is necessary and the gentleman now occupying it is laborious competent faithful and successful. Is not this sufficient to satisfy any Man who is seeking an honest end and not contending for Victory or selfish purposes ? such special pleadings and inept arguments As Are contained in the Banner of the 10th inst Are unworthy of a moments respect us consideration. The editor intimates that the majority who voted to sustain the office and the incumbent were not compe tent to decide properly at least not so com Patent As the minority of which he was one and May also say a a quorum Magna pars whatever May be thought of the truth and Force of the grounds on which this plea is put its modesty must be admired. Look at the voters on each Side of this question. They Are All very respectable gentlemen and so far would we be from detracting from their Well earned reputations that we would not even think of instituting a comparison among them were it Dot that. The Banner and advocate does so to the comparative disparagement of some of the oldest Wisest and Best friends of the Church and her boards. Is it to be believed that such men As drs Mcdowell me Elroy Snodgrass Krebs Gray Macklin and other Are not acquainted with the necessities of the Board and the wants of the cause while drs Mckinney Campbell and messes. Cyrus Dickson Crowell. Amp care fully competent and intimately acquainted with the Workings of the whole machinery ? it May Well fee questioned whether there is a Man in the whole Church who has an equal acquaintance Frith the business and wants of All our boards a with or. John Mcdowell and he is a Man of uncommon business a parity who knows not Only what ought to be done but How Tocado it and if personal acquaintance with present and former secretaries is any qualification As the editor of the Banner seems to. Think he has this Honor and qualification also. A very similar statement might be made with. Regard to drs. Me Elroy and Krebs not Only i with reference to their High standing As men j of renown in the Church but their capacity i for comprehending financial matters and i business transactions and How they ought t to be conducted if it is necessary to refer to others and the laymen of the Board there Are or. A. W. Mitchell and or. Mar Tien of Long experience in the boards of the Church and whom it would be difficult to deceive in business matters. But to All this May be offered the special plea a these men do not belong to the executive committee it seems according a to the Banner the executive committee Are the Only efficient working. Men of the Board and therefore their votes and judgments Are alone of any great consideration. A it must add wonderfully to a Many a sense and judgment of the proprieties of things a to be so fortunate As to be a member of the a executive committee i we see that the editor of the Banner was a member of that committee in 1855, and suppose that this is the reason he is so Sharp and extensive in his knowledge of the business and wants of the Board in connexion with his a a personal acquaintance and Friendship with the present and former secretaries of the but the executive committee have a More intimate acquaintance with the Busi Ness and duties of the officers of the Board than the other members. There is surely nothing mysterious in the machinery of the Board or the duties of its officers which any Plain Man might not fully understand in one hour. The Only difference in their favor is that they become acquainted in a particular matter of business a Little sooner than the others but they can be no better Able to judge than others after business is brought to their notice there were or Macklin and messes. Shields Martien and a w Mitchell m d., All residents of the pity voting with the majority and. Who will Bay that they Are not just As competent to determine the necessity of the office and the Diligence of the officer As Ady member of the executive committee ? but if to be or to have been a member of the executive committee is so inspiring we believe that they All have been such at one time or another and some of them since 1855, and if the editor of the Banner still preserves his unction so Long As derived from membership m the executive committee Why May not they ? a a the members of the executive committee Are the Only working then we wonder at the general Assembly wasting their time and other Peoples time too in appointing a Board when an executive committee not Only do All the work but Are the Only capable persons to do any work. Why did drs. Mckinney and Campbell go All the Way from Pittsburgh to Philadelphia to meet the Board and or. Dickson from Baltimore seeing they did not belong to the executive committee i. However it will be news to the Church at Large to be informed that drs. Mcdowell Melroy Krebs and others of the majority Are hot working men and take very Little interest in the boards. If we take up the minutes of the general Assembly and look at their contributions and those of their churches to the several boards and to this Board in particular we should be simple enough to think that they were working men and took an interest in the boards if we had not been told to the contrary. Or. Mcelroye a Church the year before last gave More to the Board of Domestic missions than All the churches in some of our presbyteries. But we suppose that had he been a member of the executive committee he would not have Given so much As he would have had More experience and known More about the wants of the Board in a word would have been a a a working Man in we proceed to remark More seriously that we considered the whole thing from first to last a rash and inconsiderate movement injurious to All the boards of the Church and to this Board in particular and to the worthy and efficient assistant Secretary and More especially the statements and comments which have been made in the Banner in regard to the proceedings of the Board of missions in the Case. It is calculated to raise suspicions against All the boards and their management. If the assistant Secretary of this Board May be dispensed with Why May not those of the other boards also and their salaries be saved to the Church 1 nothing can be said and nothing has been said avowedly against the Eom Peteroy Diligence or Fidelity of or. Happersett. It is True that the editor of the Banner indulges in a Strain of remark which implies that there is something behind the ostensible object of the movement. This May be More vexations than direct charges to the person implicated because it cannot be met or even noticed while it is a resort much safer for one desiring to avoid responsibility. We say As a Friend to the Board and to the Secretary though a disinterested Friend let this Mode of attack Oease and let Candor and open fairness alone govern. As to the necessity of the office and its continuance a majority of the Board have expressed their opinion and we venture to assert that their views Are in a Oord Anee with a majority of the Church and of the last general Assembly. It is unfair to infer the settled opinion of the Assembly from the vote sending Down the a suggested inquiry to the Board. No doubt the general Assembly would be willing to dispense with the office if the business of the Church in this department could be As Well managed without it. To ascertain this Point they sent it Down to the Board. Nothing therefore could be More disingenuous and unfair than to argue that the vote of the Assembly was to be interpreted As a modest and gentlemanly Way of ordering the thing to be done. Our general assemblies usually do things directly and whenever they shall get into the habit of expressing their determinations in this indirect circuitous and a a gentlemanly Quot Mode we will begin to fear More for the Church than when the Board of publication neglects to supersede one hymn by another. If the office of assistant Secretary is not necessary it ought to be. We subscribe most heartily to a remark made by or. Krebs at the meeting of the boards a a an office is very much what it is and the anomaly noticed by or. Snodgrass a a of a Board reporting increased operations and diminishing its working Force a a if there is not work enough for two secretaries there might be and there would be if it were done. All that was said by the leading Spear for abolishing the office in commendation of the chief Secretary a a bringing the Bear through a year of great financial embarrassment without deficiency and without debt a immense financial ability great forecast a unfailing Industry leading to the happiest results a might with great propriety have included the assistant Secretary. Without wishing to subtract one Iota from the merits and just Praise of or Musgrave May we not inquire How much of this Success is due to the Energy efficiency and Diligence of the assistant in connexion with the chief Secretary ? it was shown at the meeting of the Board that thousands of dollars were brought into the Treasury through his Agency that More work was done and More saving to the funds by the assistant Secretary while in California than in the same time during any one year for years a past. Add to this that the Secretary relinquished three Hundred dollars of his salary this sharing with the missionaries in the reductions made in their salaries which no other officer of the Board did. Though unmarried the assistant Secretary has a Mother sister nephews nieces some of whom Are orphans dependent on him for their daily bread. He could but ill afford this together with about three Hundred dollars travelling expenses relinquished in behalf of the Board. We have said that the course pursued in this ease is calculated to do injury to All our boards. Take dry Mckinney a whole speech at the late meeting and it would have been just As much in Point if applied to any other Board or any other Secretary had some one Only Gotton up a motion in the Assembly to inquire if a Secretary might not be dispensed with. A a the plan of systematic Benevolence has been inaugurated the churches done to like travelling agents the boards Are trustees of the churches charities we Are bound to practise All possible Economy the work has been done by one Secretary and Well done a amp of. We remember when the business pertaining to the foreign Board was All done by one Man. But does this imply that Itean now he done and Well done in its expansion by the same Man or any other ? i object to the whole spirit in which this matter has been conducted. It savors very much of radicalism and demagogue ism. Hence these appeals to the prejudices and cupidity of men and references to. Our toiling and self sacrificing Misi Narles a a a a destitute congregations a a a a widows a a a a orphans a amp a j and in this Conns Xion the threat in the form of a prediction that the Benevolence of the churches will seek some other channels. Well now suppose that a Secretary was retained whose services might possibly be dispensed with would these gentlemen recommend to the churches such revolutionary measures or think the occasion would justify either the withholding their contributions or the pouring them into the Treasury of some other denomination ? if not Why such a twaddle ? we have heard of a tempest in a Teapot but we never saw any thing so like it before. But Are the churches dissatisfied with the conclusion to Bioh the Board oame after mature deliberation ? we have seen no evidence that they Are. The editor of the Banner undoubtedly is the personal Friend of All present and former secretaries and has been a member of the executive committee too his views Are certainly of great consequence and his advice to the churches though somewhat Radical and some would say Abs Lomish is very Well calculated to keep up if not create dissatisfaction. We would have deemed it quite As proper to have withheld even Good advice till it would appear that it was actually needed. Perhaps the churches do not wish any discussion being satisfied with the present disposal of the matter having great Confidence in the honesty Wisdom and prudence of such men As drs Mcdowell me Elroy Krebs and such like. Perhaps there Are enough of men in All the churches who know that it is easier to pull Down than to build up and can discern the Short sightedness of All Penny Wise and Pound foolish policies suck As gain an end but lose a cause. Western Pennsylvania. For the presbyterian Banner and. Advocate a Field of labor. Rev. D Mckinney sir a it is very frequently the practice of vacant thu roses to Call the attention of ministers who Are seeking Fields of usefulness through the medium of your valuable paper. And this would Reem to be a very desirable matter and legitimately within the sphere of a religious newspaper allow me therefore to Call the attention of some minister who wishes to enter upon a Field of labor which promises with Faith Fui cultivation fair Reward in the building up of the redeemer s kingdom to the churches of Decatur Elhanan and pleasant Hill. These churches Are situated in Indiana presbytery of fort Wayne. Decatur is the Central and largest Church and lies in Adams county pleasant Hill lies Distant from it about ten or eleven Miles and Elhanan about the same distance. The Church at Decatur numbers about eighty Elhanan near sixty and pleasant Hill from Twenty to thirty members. These churches Are willing to pledge the payment of at least five Hundred dollars in quarterly payments if desired fur the support of a pastor if they can thus secure the settled permanent Aid of such an one. Decatur is a county seat and has probably some six Hundred inhabitants. The other churches lie entirely in the country and the stamp is very much that of Pennsylvania far As is known to the writer there has never at any period in the history of any of these churches been any thing but the most pleasant and fraternal feeling within them and they have been remarkably free from any cases of discipline. So that there Are no a a divisions among i write this at the instance of these churches and if the attention of some a a Good minister of Jesus Christ a be attracted and led hither i am sure a Good service will be rendered to the cause of our blessed master. . P. churches would be glad if this might be copied into the presbyterian and presbyterian of the West. It is one of the worst effects of Prosperity to make a Mana vortex instead of a Fountain so that instead of throwing out he learns Only to draw in.

London july 23d, 1858. The news from India As fully elucidated by the correspondence which a followed the Telegram Leav on the whole favorable1 impressions of the so a a tsp Abo Mali she do in truth when the mellowing Light. Of a few years shall have fallen on the Page and when the nervous susceptibilities and alarms of the present shall All have disappeared before crowning Success it will be a Marvel of history to have it recounted and remembered that within twelve months or Little More from the outbreak of a terrible and unexpected Mutiny such wondrous results have been achieved by British Power. This month of july is the first anniversary season of Havelock a magnificent series of victories with a handful of troops and without possible help from England which emphatically saved India. Since then Delhi the great stronghold of Mutiny has fallen and the tide everywhere is turned. Hear the decisive testimony of or. Russel writing on the 2d of june As to the present condition of affairs and say is it not cheering ? a so far As we can not judge the Only District a India which wiil require the presence of an army next autumn and of Large operations in its reduction will be nude and perhaps part of Gorsuc pore. But let us recollect that Lucknow is in Bur hands that its enormous Garrison and its armies have been beaten and dispersed that All the serviceable Field artillery of the ene toy has fallen into our Possession and that we have deprived them of All their considerable strongholds. J a a these been achieved at the Cost of very Little life and without great effusion of blood. There is not in Central India or in the North West provinces or Bengal any assemblage of the enemy which has the smallest pretensions to be considered an army. In one Stfort Campaign sir Colin Campbell has Tranquili fid the Doab crashed the Gwalior contingent a Here the writer was unaware of so India a defeat the Day before his writing at Gwalior which however seems not Likely to be attended with permanently evil results a a taken Lucknow overrun nude with moveable columns wrested Lloldi Ilund from the Rule of the rebels secured our Possession of that Rich province and re established the civil Rule of the company in its old Sites a Pov Vbk while his lieutenants have restored the prestige Quot of Ofir arms in Central India pacified Large provinces have carried Jhansi by storm captured Calpe cleared out Banda swept judges pore Laid waste the haunts of numerous chieftains and broken every band which met them in arms seizing their guns and dispersing them in hopeless a a or. Russel then deals with the Panio and absurd incredulity of the Indian press to this Bombay is an honorable exception on which and the despondent letters of its Calcutta correspondent al ways falsified by results the times itself has Ere now Ani adverted. The cry is a a nothing has been done a and worse than this the fear that is always cruel seems to regret that our artillery has been so powerful As almost unassisted and without great Slaughter to re due the strongholds of the enemy. And so says the Good hearted and indignant Russel a a after every Victory they shout for a blood Inore blood.�?T1 they care not for the results achieved they look rather to the flying enemy and rage for impossible Slaughter. Some of the gentlemen put one in mind of the croaker who after the Victory of the Nile in which we destroyed All the enemy a Fleet save two went about shaking his head in deep despondency expressing his belief that a those two frigates would play the very mischief in the a the number of sepoy slain or who have died of wounds and diseases incident on War since the beginning of the Mutiny is not reckoned at less than thirty thousand. Besides these eight or ten thousand armed men and inhabitants of towns and villages have perished in encounters with our troops. As to those shot blown away from guns or hanged in pursuance of judicial sentence it was the calculation of the correspondent of the non conformist two months ago that ten thousand had been put to death. Or. Russel entirely acquits our Noble army irom any Delight in blood and general Rose in thanking his army which had traversed More than one thousand Miles taken More than one Hundred guns and captured the strongest for a glories in the humanity which they had so often displayed. A a you have fought a he says m his. General order a a against the Strong and you have protected the weak and defence less of foes As Well As have seen you in the ardor of the combat preserve and place children out of harms Way. This is the discipline of Christian soldiers and this it is which has brought you from the shores of Western India to the Waters of the christianity has always softened the horrors of War even a a the soil of Honor a a and the pity for the vanquished As contrasted with the Yae victims of the romans of the age of chivalry were inspired by the religion of the Cross. How certainly shall it yet extinguish the flames of War by the Only effectual Means the quenching Waters of spiritual truth and that All the in the Bombay presidency it has been the happiness of the excellent lord Elphin Stone once it is said a favorite to the girlish fancy of Victoria and honorable exiled by promotion to be the head of a presidency to remove him from too near propinquity to a susceptible heart to meet successfully the first risings of Mutiny and to crush them. The murder of the political agent in the Marratta country by the chief of Nur Goone has been swiftly followed by the execution of six of his followers and by that of the great criminal who had intended thus to inaugurate an extended insurrection. The Law of adoption in connexion with this Case is again being discussed. This chief had no children and he had petitioned the Bombay government to be al Lowed to adopt an heir. This was refused. Old treaties secured the right but All Over India it was taken away twelve years ago by a new enactment. We must not forget that Nena Sahib himself pleaded that he Asan adopted child had been rejected and disowned As to his claim by the governor general lord Dalhousie. It does not appear so clearly that he would have had such a title even under the old Law. But he seems to have persuaded others to believe it and the alarm and hatred arising from this cause Are to be taken into the reckoning in connexion with the fear Ful scenes that have been enacted in India it remains to be seen whether the new government of India will repeal the recent Law which seems to have wrought so badly and by the help of which the lands of chiefs dying without Issue were passing constantly into the hands of the British. If this has Beeh one cause of the insurrection among others and if Contentment is essential to permanent Tranquility let us Hope for. A Wise and humane reversal of mistaken legislation a chess Battle is always a bloodless one even though there be a a knights a upon the Field. Pleasant it is therefore to find that instead of a fight Between England and America about the right of search and visit a sure to be followed by torrents of blood the Only Battle coming off soon is one at chess. The announcement is made of a a a great chess Matoh for one thousand guineas a Side a a to which it is added by Way of Par graphic explanation a a the Challenge of the americans to Back their newly risen chess Star or. Paul Morphy a Young lawyer of new Orleans against the Well known English Amateur or Staunton for one thousand guineas in a match of Quot Twenty one games has been. Accepted by the latter and the contest is arranged to commence at the beginning of my Rarey after taming the most vicious horses that could be found and crowning his triumphs by perfectly subduing to his will the Zebra the wild horse of the desert has been in hot water from accusations brought against him of trickery. It was1 very Mal pros certainly it would have been More so had it occurred before he received ��5,000 from the government of France and As much from that of England for his a a secret a besides innumerable ten guineas subscriptions for gentlemen and five guineas from ladies of High degree that or. Routledge a cheap publisher in London should Issue a Little Book for sixpence entitled a the Art of horse taming by j. R. in this confessedly the or Rarey a own production and the copy of a pamphlet which had been printed already in. American the whole a a Art a and a a secret a were fully described and disclosed. Where upon an Ito Ignant gentleman who had paid his ten guineas rushed into print in the times. Or. Rarey had bound All his pupils under a penalty not to disclose his a a secret a but Here it appeared that Long ago the a a secret a was a a and. So some people making free use of the vernacular said it was a a a sell a. Amp of. Or Rarey was not left however without defenders. He had the solarium already of plenty of Cash and even thus if he had dealt unfairly and was. A Man of no principle he might have said with Horace a complacent hero. A a Populas me Erbil at at Mihi Laudo Simal Caminos Contemplo in but other better defence was set up. First or Rarey a owning to the authorship of the pamphlet solemnly declared that it was written Only for private circulation among his own pupils in one of the Western states where to first Practised his system. He also released his English pupils from their Bond of concealment. ,. Next gentlemen stood Forth to declare that or. Rarey had actually accomplished All he promised and that the. Mere Reading a description of his Mode could never be sufficient to teach a thorough imitation except to very few. Public opinion is divided on the vexed question. One thing is certain even while a rather unpleasant feeling is created that or. Rarey is a Man of Genius that he is original and humane also. A new Era in the treatment of the dumb Orea Tion is thus Likely to be inaugurated. Sir Lytton Bulwer like some other literary men has had a Long standing quarrel with his wife. She is literary too and must have been a a a Blue a even m girlhood one of a class out of which even literary gentlemen do not generally choose wives. But Between her and her husband there has been separation As to marital Fellowship and against him a disguised under the mask of novels the most irions and malignant diatribes have for years been directed by the lady. All manner of profligacy cruelty and heartless conduct has m this Way been ascribed to him and last not least not Long since she actually confronted him and abused him on the hustings at his election for an English county soon after name out a statement that lady Bulwer had been seized by stratagem and earned Over to a private Lunatic Asylum. Sir Edward was charged with this conduct and it was asserted that the lady was perfectly sane. A Cabinet minister could not afford to Brave each damaging rumours without explanation. It was next announced that the lady was free and that All things were about to be arranged. And last of All but comes sir Bulwer a eldest Sony with whom the Mother is staying in London and about to travel on the continent who moreover acted for his father throughout the whole affair. In his letter to the Jess and accompanying documents it appears that or. Connoly famous in lunacy eases had shoe thought the lady to be in a state requiring restraint. A or. Forbes Winslow having examined the lady last week declared that there was no reason to detain her but considered that from facts previously submitted and opinions received he did not think sired wards conduct had been harsh or unjustifiable. Damaging however both to Dickens and Bulwer Are the disclosures recently made. Here Are two professed instructors of the people of a class who sneer at the pulpit and have no sympathy with old fashioned evangelism who yet from whatever cause Are living apart from. The women whom once they chose and solemnly swore to cherish. Any one who has Quot and a Devereux a a i did Yeara ago wherein the Reader a a by the fascination of Genius and eloquence made to Admire a couple of accomplished scoundrels can have Little doubt that Bulwer while a Little better than the writers of the previous a a satanic school a has been very familiar with the Penet Ralia of fashionable excess. I Hope he is a Wiser and better Man now than of old. He underwent some years ago at Malvern Hills a thorough course of the a water cure system a to his great physical Benefit. A Little inward purification from other and higher influences would make him great Happy and useful indeed 1 from Ireland we hear that the Tablet and the Dublin review time one a weekly journal and the other a quarterly Are in danger of extinction from Lack of support. A certainly the papists support their own press and periodicals Ery imperfectly. But the system is1 to blame for Wiseman who is the main inspiration of the Dublin review is an accomplished writer and a Man of science and he aspires to be one of the instructors of the Day and age for the Benefit of Rome. , however taunts both the review and the tab let urgent appeals Are made to Romanita to sustain them with what Success time will show. Meanwhile the Irish priests distinguish themselves after their own tastes and fashion. The latest about them is that their faithful disciples at to Liam ofe in Kings Quot county committed a fearful assault on two scripture readers. When the poof men appealed to two priests who. Seemed quite opportunely to arrive on the spot the reverend gentlemen made some remarks which infuriated the rabble to deeds of greater scandalous affair,.most damaging to Irish Popery has come tonight. In the county of Donegal lord George Hill a benevolent Nobleman has tamed a wilderness into a fruitful Field and has established extensive manufactories employing Large numbers. The priest never liked him or his improvements. They also by false representations of extreme poverty obtained for a Large number of families Relief Money from the poor Law Board. It was found on investigation that the people were not in distress and that when fined for killing a of sheep and other outrages they could pro Duce �2 notes at times and other sums i abundance. All kinds of cruelty was charged by the priests on the guardians. The priests after investigation refused to acknowledge their imposture and stirred up their friends in parliament to ask a second investigation. The result is that a committee of the House of commons including to maoists has unanimously stamped falsehood on the plea of destitution. Here is a specimen of the evidence a Lead Constable Young examined by lord took immediate a Steps to discover., the sheep after the report of tie destruction. On the 15th of april i found five skins in hog Bole with stones tied to them and the Wool Token off fiem. I found three in another bog Hole. On the 20th of april i of band eighteen Heads and seven skins of sheep Buriell to a depth of nine feet. The Heads were identified As those of sheep the property of or. Hunter. On the 22d of april i found two sheep so skins and entrails and on the 24th two other skins. These could not . Ii various other occasions i of a and remains of other sheep Heads Bones and entrails. There were Twenty four outrages committed in the District. The sheep outrages were Between the 3d february 1857, and the 22d february 1858. There were about twelve Hundred sheep destroyed. The police and sheep tax were collected by me. They amounted to something Over �2,000. All was collected by february 1858.-the people opposed in the first instance and we had to drive off cattle but none of them were sold. I was at first attended by an armed Force of police i seized a cow of or. Dohertym a. It was redeemed and the tax paid before we reached the Pound. The people did not seem to want Money. In the majority of instances Bank notes were Given some of them �20 notes. One Many gave me a �5 in mistake for a a a and did not discover his mistake for three weeks. He is on the Relief list the people paid the fax out of their own earnings i should say a that taking the whole District nearly �2,000 were received for kelp and lobsters. By far a greater part of that was for kelp i consider that there is no destitution whatever amongst the people. There was very Little failure of the potato crop last year and the plenty stored. I did not pay More than 3d. Per Stone for potatoes during last Winter. The oat crop was Good. I have known the people since 1844. They never were better off during that period for food and Stock than they Are at present. The clothing and bedding of the people Are better than Ever there to a great change for the worse the feelings of Depeo ple toward thar landlords. 1 to the. Roman Catholic clergymen. If left to themselves the people would be a warm hearted contented Good natured people. I saw people go Bare footed and nearly naked to receive Relief whom i have known to have Good clothes and shoes. This is the class of men who Are educated at the nations expense at Maynooth who Are being appointed in increased numbers and with double their former a pay to be chaplains in the army and whose nominees in parliament have Sueo eded in passing a reformatory school Bill for Ireland shutting out Young criminals from the Bible and the gospel. A . P. has been recaptured by sir h. Rose. The forts of the chinese River Weiho have been taken by the French and eng Lish. Take no thought for the Horrow a if the most anxious and unhappy men of the world a says or. Chalmers a a were examined As to the ground of their disquietude it would be found in nine Hundred and ninety nine cases out of the one thousand that the provision of this Day was not the ground of it they carry Forward their imaginations to ,>&nd< fill it up with the spectres of melancholy and Des pair. What a world of unhappiness would be saved if the thugs of to Day its duties employments a and services were to occupy All our hearts and As to to Morrow How delightful to think that we have the sure warrant of god for believing that by committing its issues in quietness to him when the future Day. Comes the provision of that Day.
