Gen'l Howard. Major Gen. O. O. Howard lectured : at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, on Monday a week, under the auspices of the Young Men's Christian Association of that city, his subject being on "Christian duty to the South." He began by stating that one even ing ho met a Southern Christian gen tleman, who asketij. him (the speaker) why he as a Christian man could adopt the course which he had? This cir cumstance had led him to the consid eration of the question, " What is our Christian duty to the South?" And in d ling so it became necessary to deter mine what'the term "South" meant. ■He had classified them as follows : First. Those men who engaged heart- J ily in the war, but when it was over gave up slavery and tbe doctrine oi State rights, and other forms of South ern origin. Second. A large class who, at first, pretended to submit themselves to the Government, but who now raise afresh tbe war cry. Third Those who were ever defiant ol law and order. Tourth. Those who had been and are still unconditionally loyal to the Gov ernment. The conduct of the defiant and those who had pretended to be loyal since the close of the war was described ; also, tbe massacres at Memphis and Now Orleans, and the recent transac tions in Ltxidon county, Ya., where bands of" regulators," with blackened faces, destroyed property, taking life j and threatening life. He regretted that in speaking of this subject openly ; it should appear to be partisanship; but they must, if they would get at the truth, investigate freely and fearless ly. Ho knew there were many luige hearted Christian men in the North who desired to hold out the olive j brunch to the people of the South, and | he eonfersed that this spirit of magna- | nimity was plausible; but in connee j tion with this question we would tind j that something beyond magnanimity was necessary. [Applause ] The Gov- , ernment had been ilippantly likened to the church, and the doctrine of receiv ing backsliders back to our bosom with charity and forgiveness; but why, if the type was insisted upon, should we be asked to receive these backsliders again without repentance, probation or guarantee ot good behaviour in the , future? But we are reminded that we were but human, and we should be careful in our exercise of authority. — The powers that he are of God, and wc must therefore act upon the basis that they who had been guilty must submit j to acknowledge and obey these pow ers, in common with the whole loyal people. He believed that forgiveness : might precede repentance, but recon ! ciloment could not. The truly repent ant should be met half way, and we should aid them to the utmost ot our power by our vote- and voices, and thus help them to 11 • from the ashes of their social ruin fhose who have always been loyal deserved the oxer cise of our Christian duty. Evidently in exercising that d ay we have some- WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 1866, thing to do in reference to the openly active urui energetic disloyal meu, and that must be done with-the view of preserving the rights and immunities of those who are with us in our sup port of the Government. The Chris tian should not, must not, forget the duty of upholding Government so as to maintain and protect liberty and good order, to protect the dutiful against the encroachments and oppressions of the lawless and disorderly. Ho was wil ling to leave the arrangement of af fairs to his Government — no one de partment of the Government, but by all. [Applause.] He saw nothing in the j constitutional amendment at variance with the spirit of Christianity, and he was amazed that its generous provis ions had not been instantly adopted by the South. There was no humiliating demand or exaction contained in any of its clauses. And yet the hatred which a certain pretentious hypocriti cal class in the South indulge against the negro had made the proposed amendment odious in their sight. Any thing which foreshadowed rights for negro must meet with their opposition, and they had lost no opportunity of misrepresenting the nature of the prop osition to those who were ignorant, and inflaming their lawless passions to the point of riot and bloodshed. The treacherous, defiant and hypocritical classes of the South would continue to take advantage of the leadership of bud men and fali in with the multitude to do wrong and commit outrage. To avert the duuger consequent upon this state of things, something must have its place in the fundamental law which shall assure to us more than Union in name —a Union in spirit. The speaker then alluded to the Conservative out cry against what was called "political preaching.''Ho did not believe in par tisan preaching, but he regarded it the duty of the Christian minister to be the teacher of religion in such away as to purify our conduct in politics as well as in the other walks of life. It was the genius and spirit of Christian ity to leach us that we were but in struments, and we were weak before God. who would, at all events, accom plish His work while we were used in promoting its details. Tlie Druuhard's Cirare. What a dark and loathsome place! No ray of hope pierces its dense gloom 1 The goodl\ r minister must not, dare not, repeat ovej* the poluted clay, as it enters the place of sepulcher, that touchingly beautiful passage in the burial service : 'We commit the body j of this, our departed brother, 'dust to dust and ashes to ashes,' in sure and certain hope of a glorious resurrection from the dead at the last day.' ilope lor the drunkard in death! Alas! 1 there is none. Inspiration inscribed upon his death tablet, in letters of fire, 'No drunkard shall inherit the king- j doin of heaven.' Despair eternal sits j enthroned upon the drunkard's grave, i and an utterance of awful truthfulness, ; proclaims its undisputed right to hold j the prisoner as his lawful pray until he shall 'awake to everlasting shame and contempt,' to receive his final j doom. Every clod, as it falls upon the cotlin lid, declares with terrible significance, the hopelessness of the lost mau. While kindred sbed their tears of anguish, and friends perform their last act of kindness, how terriflic the j thought that demons arc holding a festival of merriment over another j soul plunged by the maddening cup into perdition's fiery depths. Imagine, if you can. all the drunk ! ards who have from the first transgres- ! sions until now been brought by some invisible power into one place. How vast the multitude! How immense the mound of debased humanity. — What a commingling of the great and small, the wise and the ignorant, the civilized and the rude, the rich and the poor, the honorable and the ignoble ! j As you gaze upon this mountain pile, this commingling of nations, of divers sects, of all classes, you see written upon every brow, by the pen ot an outraged divinity, 'DlED WITHOUT HOPE.' It matters not bow brave, or learned, or rich, or generous, 01* noble, or elo quent, or influential that a drunkard was in his day, the shroud of despair covers him. The drunkard's grave is the very citadel of eternal hopelessness. What bolts and bars and chains are here ! And all the more fearful because they were forged by the miserable victim as he went forth in his day, under the sunlight of heaven. It is of no con sequence to him now when or where he lived whether in a palace or a wigwam—upon a throne or in serfdom —in luxury or in poverty —at home or in a foreign land; the result is essenti ally the same. His life was spent in digging a grave, which to him is the home of despair. • Strange that the living will not take warning, but they will not. How many in this very town, and all over the land, are every night engaged in forging the chains that will ultimately bind thein in this grave,of ruin. Willi many, the business for this terrible J consummation is well nigh done. A lew mom glasses Irom tie poisonous fiood and all is over. The final stagger made, and then the hoary headed sin ner falls in tiie pit of gloom he lias dug ! for himself. O, if he would listen to the voice of reason and repent before he makes the final plunge in the place where repentance comes not! But what is still worse, as these old veteran drunkards die off, there is no lack of others to take their place.— What a legion of young men have al ready entered the pathway leading to the drunkard's prison house. O, coulu we speak to them, one and all, we would plead with them in accents of burning love to pause before they take another step. Another glass—another spree — another bacchanalian feast, and it may be too late! By ibe yearnings of a mother's bosom; by the first love to hor to whom you have given the nup tial pledge; by the obligations of your manhood; by the respect you bear to yourself; by the compassion of a Sa viour's heart, and the wrath of an offended God, we beseech you to go no further in the downward way. Shun the revelry of the dram-shop and the glee of the festive board as you xvonld the scorpion's bite. Remember,young man, that every liquor hotel—every drinking saloon— every dram shop of every sort, is the gateway to theiiruuk ! ard's hopeless destiny. To every one | who indulges in the cup that intoxi- I cates, we would in all affection address | the solemn warning of the prophet: ! 'Turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways, j for why will ye die?' The Rottoni of the Ocean. Mr. Green, the famous diver, tells singular stories of his adventures, when makiug search in the deep water of the ocean. He gives some sketches of what he saw on the Silver Bunks near Hayti : The Banks of coral on which my divings were made, are about forty I miles in length, and from ten to twen ty in breadth. On this bank of coral is presented to the diver one of the j most beautiful and sublime scenes the eye ever beheld. The water varies front ten to one hundred feet in depth and. is so clear that the diver can see columns from two to three hundred feet in height and from one to eighty feet in diameter. The top of these more lolly support a myriad more, giving reality to the abode of some water nymph. I n other places the pen dants form arch over arch, and as the diver stands on the bottom of the ocean and gazes through these into the deep winding avenues, he feels that they fill him with as sacred an awe as if he were in some old cathedral which had long been buried beneath "old ocean's wave." Here and there, the coral extend even to the surface of the water, as if th<> e loftier col umns were towers belonging to those stately temples now in i uin. There were countless varieties of di minutive trees, shrubs and plants in every crevice of the corals where the water had deposited the least earth. They were ail of a faint hue, owing to the pale light they receive; although of every shade, and entirely different from plants I am familiar with that vege tate upon dry land. One in partieu 1 lar attracted my attention; it resem bled a sea fan of immense size of vari eguted colors, and of the most brilliant i hue The lish which inhabit these silver hanks 1 found as different in kind as the scenery is varied. They were of all forms colors and sizes—from the symmetrical goby to thp globe-like suufish; from those of the dullest hue to the changeable dolphin; from the spots of the leopard to the hues of the sunbeam; from the harmless minnow to the voracious shark. Some had heads like squirrels; others like cats and dogs; one of small size reseribled a bull terrier. Some darted through water like meteors, while others could scarcely he seen move. To enumerate and explain all the various kinds of fish 1 beheld while diving on these hanks would, were I enougii of a naturalist to do so, require more space than my limits will allow, for I am convinced that most kinds of fish which inhabit the tropi cal seas can he found there. The sun fish, starfish, white shark, ground shark, blue or shovel nose shark were often seen There were also fi>b which resembled plants, and remained as fixed in their position as a shrub; the only power they possessed was to open and shut when in danger. Some of them resemble the rose in full bloom and wero of all hues; there were ribbon fish from foui and five inches to three feet in height. Their eyes are very large and protrude like those of the frog. Another fish was spotted like the leopard, from three to ten feet long. They build their houses like the beaver, in which they spawn, and the male or lemale watches the ova till it batehes. 1 saw many spec imens of the green turi!>- some five feet long, which I should thi i would weigh from four to five hundred p.n Is i Hull i;.niol Rati' Horses. Some forty years ago the managers of a race course near Brownsville, on the Monongahela, published a notice of a race, one mile heats, on a particu lar day, for a purse of 81W. " Free lAr anything with tour legs and hair on." A man in the, neighborhood named Hayes, had a bull that he was iu the habit of riding to mill with his bag of corn, and he was determined to enter him for the race. He said nothing.ahout it to any one, but he rode him around the track -a number of times on several moonlight nights, until the bull had the hang of the ground pretty well, and would keep the right course He rode with spurs, which the bull considered disa greeable, so much so that he always i bellowed when they were applied to his rtunks. On the morning of the race Hay es came upon the grourid„ou horseback on his bull. Instead of a saddle he had a dried oxhide, the head part of which, with the horns still on, he had placed on the bull's rump. He had a short tin horn in his hand He rode to the judges' stand and offered to enter his bull for the race; but the owners of the horses that were entered objected. Hayes appealed to the terms of the . notice, insisting that his bull had "four legs and hair on," and that he had a right to enter him. After a good deal of swearing, the judges declared them I solve compelled to decide that the bull had the right to run. and was entered accordingly. When the time for start ing arrived, tiie bull and horses took ; their places. The horse-racers were out of humor at being bothered with a bull, and at the burlesque which they supposed was intended, but thought it would be over as soon as the horses ! started. When the signal was given they did start—Hayes gave a blast of his horn, and sunk his spurs into the sides of the bull, which bounded off with ater rible bawl, at no trifling -peed, the dried ox hide flapping up and down and rattling ;.t every jump, making a combination of sounds that had never been heard on a race course before —- The horses all flew the track, every one seemed to be seized with a sudden determination to take the shortest cut to get out of the Redstone country, and not one of them could be brought back in time to save their distance. The purse was given to Hayes. A general row ensued, hut the fun of the thing put the crowd on the side of the hull. The horsemen contended that they were swindled out of their purse, and had it not been for Hayes' horn and ox hide, which he ought not to have been permitted to bring on the ground, the thing would not have turn ed out as it did. Upon this Hayes told them his bull could beat their horses anyhow, and if they would put up a hundred dollars against the puise lie had won he would takeoff the ox hide and leave the tin horn, and run a lair race with them. His offer wns accepted and the mon ey staked ; they again took their place at the starting post, and the signal was given. Ilayes gave the hull another touch with the spur, and the bull gave a tremendous bellow. The horses, remembering the dread ful sound, thought all the rest was coming as before. Away they went again in spite of the exertions of their riders, while Hayes galloped his hull around the track, and won the money. Rebel Lectures. —Officers of the rebel army now support themselves by de livering lectures on the subject of the 'Confederate war.' Wade Hampton lately made one of these lectures or speeches, during which he declared that he scorned the mercy of the Yankee Government —that the Presi dent's pardon was worth nothing un less it was accepted as a permit to the man who holds it to fight for his opin ions and his preference whenever he wants a change. Wade is a sound man on rebellion and generally speaks for a large number of rebels. Tlie \OrUl Pole. Two French gentlemen recently ex plored the island of Spitzenbergen in a manner never done before. They have measured the mountains, mapped the whole coast, examined the vogeta ble p'roducts, the geological composi tion, etc., of the entire island They have found that the long day extend ed over several months, during which the sun never sets, becoming intensely hot after a month or two by the un ceasing heat from the sun. In this period vegetation springs up in great luxuriance and abundance. The Vol. LVI. Wo. 44 North Polo is only an. at tor of 000 miles from the island, and it is thought by the two ox: 1 >rcrs, as by many others, that the pole itself, and the sea which is supposed to surround it, could be reached troin Spitzonbergen with out many great difficulties being en countered. A singular iaet noticed by the explorers, in connection with this island, is the enormous quantities of floating timber which literally cover the waters of the bays and creeks A careful examination of the character, condition and kind of those floating logs would, no doubt, lead to a conclu sion as to whence and how they came, and prcpabiy suggest new theories for the solution ot geographical problems connected with the arctic seas.
