TUESDAY EVENING, NOV. 30, 1880.
Receives it Call from the Recter of
Church of the Hely Presence.
A. D. 1835.
Hafter that day Hi comes 'emc from the
Church of the ?OIy Presence that flustered
thre1 seeing se many things in church as
Hi niver saw hafore as Hi'ra suits my art
was halmest in my month, as you may say.
Hi didn't say no mere te 'Opkins habeut
the matter, as Hi was thankful he didn't
hask thre' seeing Hi wasn't just heasy in
my mind hen the subject. He didn't niv
er use te "avc much curiosity, didn't 'Op
kins, and he's that slew habeut speaking
sejnetimes as H'm sure is lit te make you
crazy. W'y Hi remembers like as if it
might be yesterday the hevenings he'd
come te see mohafere jare was married,, as
Hi nivcr thought we would be thre' 'is
bean se long a making up 'is mind te hask
me te marry 'im, as there niver was nethink
like it ; and sit he would a looking at me,
like a3 if Hi was a "Wenus or semethink of
the kind,for hours at a time, and niver say
ing nethink but yes or no w'en Hi speaks
te'im. Sometimes Hi thinks Hi would
'urry 'ni up a bit by telliug 'im habeut the
different weddings Hi 'ears was 'appening,
but laws, Hi might as well 'ave talked of
funerals for all the hitnpressien Hi makes
en 'im. He is a man as will halways take
'is own time, is 'Opkins, and he's that 'ard
te move w'en he's once made up 'is mind
as the North Pele isn't nethink te 'im for
But, as Hi was saying, Hi 'adu't said no
mere te 'im habeut the 'OJy Presence
church thre' feeling sero en the matter
myself, and the next Sunday Hi gees with
'im te Saint Jonathan's, as wasn't as 'igh
church as me and 'Opkins was used te,
but was worry well, all the, same. Hevery
new and then Miss Carter comes te see us
as"didn't seem te 'avc no ill feelings towards
me thre my 'aving said as Hi was glad Hi
wasn't like the Hangle Catholics, and she
says tome w'ore was Hi ceing te church
new, and Hi answers te Saint Jonathan's
w'en Hi gees at all, witch was net as hof hef
tens as in Hiuglaud thre' it net being se
'igh as what Hi was used te.
" Come go with me te the Church of the
'Oly Presence, hagin, Mrs. 'Opkins," says
she then, worry sweet like.
" Ne, and thanks te you, Miss Carter,"
Hi says. " Hi couldn't niver get used te
they, mcauiug the Hangle Catholics," says
Hi te 'cr then.
She leeks sad like w'en Hi hanswers
that way, but she comes te see me nil the
same as H'm sure Hi was glad te 'avc 'er,
for she was a gcntle-speken young woman
as was worry like a sister of mine as died
haferc Hi was married te 'Opkius.
" Maybe you will think different some
day, Mrs. 'Opkins," she would say te me
sometimes, as Hi tells 'er she might be
right, but Hi didn't think as Hi ivcr should
if Hi knows myself and Hi 'epes Hi may
niver be of 'er mind.
Se she comes and gees and the time slips
by quite rapid like, w'en one morning as
Hi was standing at the deer looking up
Seuth Quince street and thinking as it was
time the postman was crc, a gentleman as
was coming haleng the sidewalk steps te
speak te me.
"Is this Mrs. Opkins ?" he says worry
pleasant like, and Hi sees then as it was
Mr. Day, as Hi 'ad seen at the 'Oly Pres
ence long haferc.
Hi hanswers as it was and basks 'im in-
te my parlor as Hi' in sure nobody need feel
ashamed te sit down in, the' Hi says it as
sheuld'nr, and 'aving a heasy chair as was
that comfortable as you'd niver want te
get out of it, and lace curtains as Hi 'ad
washed and ironed that week myself, as
was 'aid work, and 'Opkins a saying wot wet
iver de you de it for and gclls that stupid as
ruins hevcrything they lays their 'ands te.
" Well, he sits down, and I sees w'en he
he throws back 'is coat as he 'ad a big
geld cress as was 'nng te a chain round
'is ncek as Hi didn't like the leeks of.
" Miss Carter tells me you are from
Hinglaud," he says, wcrry haffable.
" Yes," Hi says, " me and 'Opkins 'as
only bean in Dencastcr .a few months."
" Yeu are a church woman, she tells
me," he gees en.
Most certainly," Hi hanswers. "Wen
we was in Londen me and 'Opkins went
reg'lar te Saint Hann's as maybe you've
'card of thre' Mr. 'Ampton bean pastor of
it," Hi says.
" Yes, Hi 'ave," he says. " Hi 'ave
met 'im. A most hexcellcnt man, but a
little hastray en a few points."
" Hi don't know'ew that may be," han
swers Hi, puzzled a bit te knew what he
means "but at St. Hann's he is thought
heverythink of," lit says.
"Wcrry proper," says he, "a wcrry
proper state of mind for a parish. Hi am
Mr. Day, as is the rector of the church of
the 'Oly Presence." he says after a little,
"and Hi 'epes te see you and your 'usband
frequently at the 'Oly Presence."
"It is werry kind of you." Hi says,
"but Hi 'ave been there once, as Hi don't
think ni justly cares te g j hagm."1
"Wy net, Mrs. 'Opkins?" he hask s,
drawing 'is hoyebrews hinte a straight line
and speaking a bit stern as Hi fancies.
"Well," Hi explains, "the' meaning
no helTense te you, sir, Hi was brought up
haccerding te prayer book as don't seem
te me the way with the Hangle Catholics
as Hi am told your sort is called, and Hi
don't feel at 'eme like with they, thre' bean
used te 'aving things different' at Saint
"Yeu are quite mistaken, Mrs. 'Op
kins," lie says te me, then, " quite mis
taken ; we fellows the rubric as you knew
is in the prayer book, and wetever cere
meny isn't forbidden there is perfectly
right for us te use. Hevery day we are
getting nearer and nearer te the customs
of the primitive church. And he wet a
joyful day," he exclaims, "w'en the church
will be restored te its primitive purity and
Hall this was weiry bewildering like te
me, but Hi waits till he finishes and then
" MaTbe a., von a, rfi,t. Mr. Dav. bnt
Hi'm sure the church of the present day is
quite geed enough for me. Frem hall
Hi've 'eard," Hi says, " Hi don't belieTC
as they knewed heverythink in them times
as you was a speaking of."
Most like he sees then as he wasn't mak
ing great 'cadway with me, the' he was
that haffable and social like, as Hi couldn't
'elp but like 'im and a wishing as he
rf r -- J 1
wasn't a Hangle Catholic, and se pretty
seen he gets up te go.
"Tell your 'usband," he says then,
"as we 'epes te see 'im seen at the Church
of the 'Oly Presence, and you, tee, Mrs.
'Opkins, for hall you think us such law
ful people," he gees en laughing quite
'arty as did oue geed te 'car'im.
"Yeu arc most kind," Hi says, "but 'Op
kins and me leeks both halikc, and Hi'm
that sure as you couldn't drag 'Opkins te
no Hangle Catholic church, no, net if you
was four 'erscs a pulling Mm with ropes, as
Hi see once in a picture of a man as H'im
sure must 'ave bean 'urt most hawful, as
Hi was never mere positive of anythink."
W'en 'Opkins came 'emc te dinner, as
said he 'ad been riding te Lampeter en
business, as he wouldn't tell me what it
was. Hi says te 'im as Mr. Day had called
"Whoever is he, Mary?" he hasks.
Se then He tells 'im as he was the par
son at the Church of the 'Oly Prescnce,and
hafter wards Hi says te Mm what Hi saw
w'en Hi went there with Miss Carter as
Hi 'adn't niver said much of haferc as Hi
says at first. "Mr. Day says as he 'epes
you will go te 'is church, but Hi says as
you wouldn't niver de nethink of the
kind," Hi finishes as Hi puts the sugar
into 'is coffee as he niycr thinks he can de
" Wetlver was in you te tell 'im that,
Mary?" he asks me, cress like, as the best
of 'usbands is sometimes hapt te ba, as
Hi'm sure 'Opkins isn't,the' quite geed in
-'is way, as Hi doubt if there's many as is
much better hafter hall. "Can't a man
speak for 'imself," he gees en grumbling,
as it might be his dinner was a disagreeing
with 'im. " Ili've alf a mind te see 'ew
the Hangle Catholics manages things for
myself," he says.
W'en Hi 'ears 'Opkins say this Hi was
that beat as you might 'avc knocked me
down with a feather.
"Laws," lit licxcianns, "just ear 'im
"Well," he says warm like, "you may
listen and you'll 'ear 'im say as he's going
te the Hangle Catholic church, come
next Sunday;" and then he shuts 'is
mouth as nethink couldn't iver make 'im
hepen it hexcept'isdinner witch he couldn't
resist thre bean fend of healing as he
wouldn't be 'OpkinsMf lie wasn't.
Hi thinks te myself as all this was be
cause he was a bit put heut haleng of me
but Hi sees next day as he was firm as
"Yeu are a feel," Hi says te "im w'en
Sunday comes and he still a saying he
would go te the Church of the 'Oly Prcs Prcs
eticc, "you arc a feel te go hafter hall
you've 'card of their doings from me as
wouldn't say a false word if Hi was te be
'nng for it."
"Well, Mary, lass," he says quick like
for 'im, '' if Hi am a feel te go Hi am
net the first feel as 'as gene there from
this werry 'eusc," says he.
Hi couldn't say nethink te that and off
he gees and me a wondering what 'ad
come hover 'im.
The Jeffersen Association of Yerk te the
Jeffersen Association of Shrewsbury.
At a full regular meeting of the Jeficr
son Democratic association of Yerk, No
vember 22, 1890, the following was or er
dered: Te the Jcffeeten Democratic Asiociatien of
Fellow-Citizens : We hail with great
pleasure the advent of your organization
as the eldest sister of our own. Your
twenty prepositions of Jcffcrsenian doc dec
tiine have been read in our hearing. They
are sound, safe and indispensable. Upen
the body of principles, of which they arc
the most essential, rests the whelu super
structure of American institutions the
union of supreme but limited powers, the
independence of the states, and the per
sonal liberties of the citizen. Strike these
stones from the foundation, and the whole
edifice must crumble into dust.
We call ourselves after the great apostle
of American liberty, the author of the
Declaration of Independence, and the
founder of the Democratic party. Wc
propose te return te the principles upon
which he led our forefathers te the due
settlement of the blessed republican insti
tutions we have enjoyed through the bet
ter part of the century. Wc shall cherish
them as the sheet aucher of peace, of
order, and of security, and we here declare
our solemn purpose te avoid all political
association which subordinates these es
sential principles te any ether dectrine or
purpose whatever, and te repudiute 'all
leadership which tends te sacrilice them te
local or temporary success. Te this end,
we shall employ, te the best of our ability,
the press and the rostrum, and apply our
personal exertions, in the dissemination of
the pure, life-giving principles of govern
ment "of the people, by the people and
for the people." And te this end we shall
as an organized body take no part in
struggles at primary or delegate elections,
or suffer any person, under any circum
stances, te make his membership a step
ping stone te public office. Our mission
is te bring together men of like mind, that
they may knew each ether when occasion
requires te take counsels together for the
preservation of constitutional liberty, te
give warning of impending danger, and te
arouse the jealous watchfulness of the
people against the encroachments of cen
It will be observed that our method of
organization is that of Jeffersen, himself,
and his compatriots of the Revolution. It
is that of popular association the popular
committee of vigilance, the liberty club,
which began thestruggle against the Brit
ish crown and is new again invoked for
the preservation te the people of the sa
cred righte which were then wen. Never,
since the adoption of the constitution,
have the Jcffcrsenian theory of govern
ment by the people and the Hamiltenian
theory of strong government by power be
yond the reach of the people, been brought
into sharper collision than at this time.
We see se-called "business interests" in

Iiigcrsell and Beecher.
"Iugersell and Beecher," says Henry
Wat tersen in the Louisville Courier Jour
nal, "arc indisputably the most successful
popular speakers of the time. Te say
this is te say that they are the two best
actors of the time. Of the two, Beecher
is mere of an orator aud Ingcrsell mere of
an actor. Their methods are of the stage
stagy. They are nothing if net theatric.
Each has a style of his own ; but the dif
ference in their style is of the sort which
distinguishes the playing of Beeth and
the playing of McCulIeugh. Each is a
dramatis persona in himself appearing
in a melodrama of one part and oue
act of two hours, full of light and shade,
the one succeeding the ether in artis.
tic order nnd contrast ; the comic, the pa
thetic, the declamatory, all admirably ar
ranged te produce their appropriate effects
These e. v-ts are rarely missed, for neither
Ingcrsell nor Beecher is wanting in the
Thespian's command of all the simulative
powers, nor deficient in what professional
actors call "stage business." That the
two as artists should appear in public te
gether is net anomalous. That they
should admire each ether's playing is
natural. But when we are asked te
appeal te them as genereus adversaries
who have for the sake of one cause
agreed for the moment te sink their differ
ences as te another, we nuistsay that puts
tee great a strain upon the blanket.
Either the whole affair is a sham, a farce,
or else Mr. Beecher and Mr. Ingcrsell are
substantially of one mind and heart.
There is and there can be no compromise
between Mr. Bcechcr's creed, and the
creed of Mr. Ingcrsell, which is the
abolition of all creeds. The real mean
ing of their meeting was that they
both put their partisan passions above
their religion. Fer this they are extolled
by the Republican party, which, bo be
ing a party of infidels and hypocrites, has
no real convictions en any real question,
but only emotions. The present genera
tion is being brought up te this sort of
thing ; this loose fitting morality ; this
slipshod mode of thinking; this canting
humanitarianism and spurious culture. It
is preparing a nation of imbeciles for the
hand of a master. The simple forms and
sturdy virtues of a pure race are te be ob
literated by the easy virtue and vapid no
tions of an age of claptrap. Aud he who
pretests is denounced as a provincial, a
feel and a traitor !
