Central Truth —Only believe ; in God there is hope lor the helpless. By what may mm a sudden hound we now pom to the Ual hall of the B ok of Nuuioera. a" Called lioni the IWI nuuiOeriUg* of the I-r.ielile* reconleu in it. It al-o contains an account o their wilderness llle Iron) Iheir depart ure troni Sinai until they are ready to euler Causae. Thirty -eight yearH hare ela|>Hed ainci the lime ot our lost lessons. Leaving Siual alter the giving of the law and ol the regulation* concerning aaci dicea nd Ihe -acred eason, the l-ra- luea re H utned their march and cauie to K idcsh, on the ver> I ion tier ol ihe promised land. From thia point spies were sen I forward to nee what sort of a land ii wan to which Ihey were journeying. These, on their return, gave a glowing account of the fruillulness ol the coun try, but ten of the twelve represented the people to be numerous, huge and warlike. Upon this the Israelites look alarm and refused to go forward, God was greatly displeased with iheir relief lious conduct and declared that, except ing the faithful spies, not one of them should ever enter the good land. Ac cordingly they were turned hack, and for thirly-eigbt years they lingered iu the wilderness. At the and of these years a new generation had succeeded to that which came out of Egypt, and once more they gather at Kadesh. It was at Kadesh that Miriam died. And here it ptobably wa thai Arnd the Canaanite made the attack recorded in the present leasou. Their first move ment from thia place was to Mount llor. where Aaron, too, was "gathered unto his people," and where the difficulties of their march seemed to begin. It should be noticed that "the way of the Red Sea" here simken of was Unit of its eastern branch,or the gulf of Aka bah. Touching this at its northern ex tremity they proposed to "compass," or go around, the hostile land of Kdoin. But, in attempting to do this, "the soul ot the people was much discouraged he cause of the way." 1. Here, again, as so often before, they fell into great sin. It i* not surprising that their courage weakened, (or they were human and there was much intri their faith. They seemed to be going right away from the land they had de sired; powerful enemies were near. and. moreover, the way was sandy and rnugn, a "horrible desert," with little bawl or water. But G.al had often shown him self to be their God, and out of niiny perils and difficulties he had givpri theni great deliverance. That they should lorget all thia. and give way to com plaints instead of praises, especially that they should speak contemptuously of the manna with which he was still feeding them, was most ungrateful and base. '1 It is not strange that God should •end upon them a terrible punishment. This he did, lie sent fiery serpents among them and they hit the peo; le, and many died. W.- are not to under stand by this that the |m;sonnu* reptiles were created for this purpose and ai this time. Gi>d has always at band the instruments of bis displeasure. And it is his ordinary way to make providen tial use of these. This de-ert. ** trsv elers tell as, is still infested with dan gerous snakes, "marked with fiery spot* and spiral lines." and whose Idle is often fatal. God made these Ihe minis tersot his justice in the correction of bis sinning people. 3. Judgments do not always bring those who experience them to repint ance, hut in this instance the people saw and confessed tbeir sin. Doubtless they prayed for themsalves. They •ought the intercession of Mosea. It i a sign of the hardnesa of men's hearts that it is often only by experience ol pain that men can he made 10 see and own the evil of their sin. We compel God to deal severely with us or leave us utterly to perish. So Israel did. 4. The meet wonderful thing in this narrative appears iu God's readiness to listen to bis people and in the wav he took to save them. Straightway Mfoses is directed to make a serpent of brass, similar to that by which the people had been bitten, and to put it upon a pule, where all could see it. And whoever looked upon it waa immediately healed. Borne excellent Bible dictionaries have given more space than is profitable to attempt to account for the choice of this particular object or symbol. Idle at tempts have also been made to explain the effect of looking upon it on natural grounds. What the dying Israelite saw was ■imply a likeness of the fiery serpent, dead, and so powerless to barm. There was in it no healing virtue. To the be holder it was a sign that (Jod could and would beat them. It was for them to believe and obey ; to look and live; the bigling was the act of (iod. But it was also intended as a type of llim who, on the cross, "was lifted up, that whoso ever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life." The s|*ecial points for os to note are the simplicity, the immediateneas, and the all-suffi iency of the rented* ; and tbst it wus the only one provided or offered. It rs simple, for the dying man had on ly to trust and look. It wss immediate, lor at once, "when he beheld, he lived." It waa all sufficient, for not only WM each cure complete, but offered besting was for any and all. No alter native, but to perish, remained lor su< b as refused to beed the offer made to them. ID all this there is a striking prefiguration of the Gospel way. The uplifted serpent stands for the crucified ssviour. And nowhere can we Hud a clearer exhibition ol what the sinner is to do to he saved. The dying man saw and confessed Ida own sin a* the cue of Ids misery; he perceived thut, so far as sell help was concerned, his case wus hopeless; he made his confession and cry unto God; he hsd confidence thai God's proposed remedy ws just and sufficient; when God said tohiiii. ' Look and live," he believed and obeyed, and straightway he was healed. Bo it l with every perishing soul who truslirg ly looks to Christ on the cross. PRACTICAL BCUUENTIO.NS. 1. Many, like Arad the Canaanite, would hinder the heavenward progress ol God's people; nevertheless, He that is lor us is more than all they that he against us. 2. 11-trdshipa and difficulties lie in every right path, slid aie permitted lor wise and loving reasons. To make ll easier to endure ami overcome these, God has given us exceeding great and precious promises. When ready to laiut ami give over, it is our privilege to lenient her the rest and glory at the end- J. From allowed discouragement to ooiupla.ltiug- ami letiellloli the way l -hurt. Against such a spirit or mood it . therefore a duly to watch and pry. I'lie re me 111 lira I ice ot past mercies, to tllc-r with the thought ol the wisdom and goodness ol God, should he sutfi Olelil to keep u troui it. 4. There can be no ha-er ingratitude ban that wnlch speaks or thinks ill ot God's good gilts. The right heart does not forget to give thanks lor daily bread. 5 God tnskea use of judgments to rou-e iu* N to a sense of sin HI d move tbern to repentence. When goodi.esa , laiis. he grviou-ly re-oris to severity. 6. The prayers of others should he Vnlued alol sought. 7. God's nrercy is swifter than his judgment; he makes haste to hear pray er, and he turns none away. 8. In nothing does that mercy so wonderfully appear as in his remedy for sin: a remedy immediate, complete,free sufficient Inr the worst and lor all, ami so simple a* to l>e wnhin the reach ol the poor and ignorant ami weak, n well as the rich, learned and strong, provided only they sincerely desire it. 9. Nevertheless, it we will not rou-e ourselves to accept 11, it will avail u ahso.utely nothing; we slisll still peri-h iu our sins. Therefore, hasten to "look.'' POLITICAL AND SOCIAL INCIDENT. There arc many romances connected with the late war which will hear rcjie (ilioti. The following, which we give in brief, is gathered Iroin the columns ol the New Orleans Democrat: Robert J. Walker was a member of the Cabinet of President Pierce. While he was Secretary of the Treks ury Washington society WHS greatly agitated by the hrilliiuit marriage ol Ins daughter to u young naval officer connected with one of tlie oldest Cre ole families of Louisiana. The marriage ceremonies were of a brilliant character. The President, every member of the Cabinet, the for ' eigu ministers, the Senators, in fine all the notabilities of Washington and (he most lushioi able society, attended. The young couple went on a tour to Kurope. I heir means were ample and their tMicial standing all that could be desired. All went marriage IM-II" until ihe v -wd the war of the rein I! Rotierl -J. Walker liiiSie tw nf llie UnioriAtnd became a bitter enemy of the Confederates. His son-in-law, from a sense of State pride and obligation to the family, lelt constrained to iden tify himself with the Smth. From that moment disasters came thick and j lust. One cause niter another led to a permanent separation of the pair whose marriage has In-en niculicued, and tlie voting wife soon Irecniut* a widow. She retired with her child to her mother and tuinily in Philadel phia. In the meantime Mr. Walker had been unfortunate in his investments, and at his death left his liimily in liar row circumstances. His widowed daughter, despite her complete re serve, could not fail to attract ntteu lion and many pm|oeala of marriage were made to her by gentlemen of wealth and prominence. The incident closes as follows: At last, however, her friends and Society were astounded by the report that she had accepted the hand of a gentleman distinguished in the pro fessional and political world, hut cursed with a deformity and mutilia lion as repulsive and revolting as that of the veiled Mokanna of Moore's "Lalla iiookh." In boyhood he had fallen into the fire on his face, ami so burned it is as to present even now, in advanced age, a most pitiable and hid eous aspect. Those who are accustomed to make summer visits and sojourns at Long Branch have not failed to observe in the parlors of the West End Hotel, on the promenades and drives ol' that de lightful resort, the unhappy victim of , this cruel misfortune in a stout gentle , man of good figure, of dignified and graceful carriage, but with a face so blurred, scarred aud distorted as to al most conceal and abolish all human resemblance and repel with disgust all advance to closer observstion and ac quaintance. U|Nn that gentleman's arm leans a lovely woman, whose |*le face still retains the most refined and beautiful expression, ami whose har monious features and lithe and grace ful figure may be quickly recognised | as those of the beautiful Mi* Walker, who, twenty five years before, had en , j thralled all bebuMers aud given her i the unquestioned title of the sweetest [ aud prettiest girl in Washiugiou city. The marked attention of the bril liant company at the West find, thro' which they posited, the eageruetw of all prsons to exchange courtesies ami en gage in converiiMtiou with the gentle man and luily, the intention ami re spect with which everthiug which fell from the gentleman was received by all listeners, betokened the high con sideration in wbicb lie was held. To draw him into conversation and drink in bis every utterance appured to be the ambition of every one. • Who is that couple?" would be the natural inquiry of all strangers ; "that terribly mutilated and defaced gentleman and tbut unhappy daughter who bangs upon bis arm ?' The ready utiswer would be that the gentleman is the ablest, most eloquent and ini pressive lawyer and orator of Phila delphia, who for many years has led that Imr, utul is the most agreeable and captivating gentleman of the very tmlishcd society of that refilled city. The lady is the daughter of Hubert J. Walker,so distinguished in our politi cal and financial history. The gentle man is spoken ol as a prominent can didate tor the position of Attorney General. TIIE EX-EM I'll ESS EIGEME. TIIC neuTina IIOMK wants sue is untax ■xo nea Lira wr. A corres|Miiideni writing from Lake Constance to the Chicago Tribune says: The exEinprcss Kngenie lots IM-CII passing a few weeks in the castle ot Areneuburg, not far from the city ot , Con-lance. This city is u|mmi the SWISS shore ot the lake, near the little village of Muuiieiilwch. It was built iby Eugene Beauhariiia, and was a favorite resort with him and bis sister. Queen Ilorteiise. It was here that this unhappy lady retired after the full of the Empire, to remain until her death, ller memory is regarded with warm nth-cliou by the bumble peoplt of the country side, ami the chapl at Areneiiliurg, where it was her wont to go for ptayer, is to llieiii | a very sacred place. In this chapl is an exquisitely sculptured marble fig ure of the Queen, erected to the mem i ory of her son, Kapileon, 111. Hhe is kue*-ling in prayer. Her attitude is regularly expressive of humanity and resignation to Divine will, ami it M-eius , to tell the story of mi-judged life, re lying in its latest hours iijsm the mercy of Heaven. Upon the pedestal is inscribed the name "Hortense," ami Irelow this, "Napdcoti Ft Is." Areoen- I burg was much beloved by Kugeuie ; before the d<-ntb of her son. The ! young Piince Imperial was extremely i toml of this quiet eastle, and to his j mother thoughts of hiiu are associated with each vineyard and grove und shore. The castle stands upon a hill over looking the Untor S-a, an expan-e of wafer lying IKIIWCCII Lake Constance and the current of the Hhiue. Prom the lake the view of Arenenberg is very pacvtul. No more fitting scene j of repose than the ex Empress could j Ite itnsgned than these quite shores. Prom the western windows of her cas tle she may see the autumnal sunset painting the .Swiss skies with vivid colors, reflecting in the calm waters ot the luke Peasants go singing along the road benruth the hill with baskets 1 ot grap-* u|H>u their heads. To them Eugenie is a veritable La dy iiouutitul, and they Ideas her with greattul volubility. To the right ot Anncnhcrg is the BeHuhariiai* i'usth ot Halseiistciu, situated on a high hill, and presenting a noble front to voya gers ii| h>is this lake. Not far away are Kogeiishurg and Wol-herg, once Pretn h pleasures villas, hut now con verted into hotels for the summer idlers who visit Luke Constance, Manneu haeh, the nearest jmst village, is a tiny hamlet, connected with Arcoculterg liV a (airinge road leading past Salon stem, and a more direct foot-path through the vineyard up the full meadow covered with crocus blooms ami into the castle gardens. It may give u better idea of this retreat to describe it as a villa rather than a castle; for though it is a large and pleasant building there are uo lowers upon it, Mini the vine-covered piazza* iii front open directly upon the flower gardens, iu which tue |>our Empress fiud* the chief solace of her grief. These gardens lie to the north ot the house, ami are gay with gera looms and roses, Eugenie's favorite flowers. To the east ul the gardens are the servant's places, the kitchens ami stables, litre are kept the car riages iu which Na|sileon 111. made his journey to his attendants at that time. The Empress has brought hut two hooes to Arvueolierg—a pair ot prfecllv - matched carriage horses— named Flora aud Hector by the young Prince lin | m-i iu I. They are I- rench liorsea, finely built ami of perfect spirit, hut tliey have little exercise, as the Empress now cares hut little fur driving. When she goes out she uses a pretty little Imrouche, cushioned iu dark blue cloth. Hhe is said to have expressed dislike to Arenenberg dur ing her preseut visit, aud a determiua tion never to come again to the almres of Lake Constance. Her memories of happier days here cause her pain too keen fur resignation. Her habiu of fife are very simple, and ike days at the castle are wearily alike. Hhe rises at 9 o'clock, takes coffee, ami spends the morning after her devotions in reading or io conversation with the only one of her ladies in waiting who reiiiaiua in faithful attendance upon her. After break lasting at uoou in the French faabiou the Empress guea for a visit about the gardens, or rarely for a drive on the Swiss hills, Hhe sjicmls the reuiuimler of the time un til flintier among her flowers, and alter dinner watches the sunset or walks in the garden until evening devotion. She dresses always iu deep black, and her once blonde hair is nearly as gray as that of a woman of eighty years should lie. No woman ever sits now iu the chairs iu the chapel on either side of Eugenie's om*e used by her husband uod their son. Only once has this routine been changed since the Empress came to Areueuberg, aud this was on the anniversary day of the defeat of Sedan, September 2, when she remained alone in her room during all id' the day. The only sub ject iu which she now shows any in terest is in the preparations going tor ward at her estate of Farulmroiigh, near Aldersliol, iu Hump-lure, Eng land, for her |>eruiuueiii residence I here. GREAT GKNEUVLS. From LrUur* Ilur. The three greatest generuls the ' world lias ever produced—Alexander, Ctesar, Nuplcon—were all men of letters. Alexander was the friend ol ' Aristotle and un auuotutor ot Hoiuer. I Ctcsar'n commentaries are still classic Ixsiks. N.ipoleoo would have beeu a man eminent in science hud he not Occn uo Eiop-mr. "Do you think," j lie said, "that it 1 hud not been gen- - eral-iu-chief und the instrument of tale to u mighty nation tliul I would have accepted place nod deptnlcii'T- '/ No! 1 would have thrown oiysell into the study of the exact sciences; my path would have Iks-u that of Galileo ami Newtou, and since 1 have always I succeeded iu my great enterprises 1 should have highly distinguished my self also in scientific labors, i should have left the memory ol IH-auiilul dis coveries." Great generals have usuulty j been men ol greui strength und endu rance even when small ol stature. I'he Duke of Wellington, iu the I'eiiiusula, was often eighteeu hours together uu horseback and frequently rode tiny - miles between breakfast and dinner. Nttjmlenij was often nearly as long in his saddle, and once lie guihqicd from Bayuuue to Vittoris iu two days. He j had die remarkable laculty of sleeping quickly at will und so recruiting his lustily lorcc. Suite great generals have, however, not la-cn noted lor physical (tower. Agvailaus was lame und little of stature. Huuoihal was an ftivalid ami had hut uiie eye when < ;he commanded at Thrasiineue mid : Coomc. William the Third was a man of weakly frame, and the great Fred erick ot I'rus-ia was not strong, j Whether strong or weak in hudiiy ; t rMine no general can be great it dcti j eieni iu nieutul vigor.

Alter the pare of Tilsit be showed his friendship to the C/ar Alexander most ol ull by sending ten of his pro lessors to establish a military school uke the Polytechnic 111 Russia. M> r fighting generals are always to be louml; they grow plentifully a* Sand hurst or iu the cricket ground u> Eton ; hut gi-uerals who gniu victories uinl n ake conquests with the loss ol tew men are only to IK: ohtained by the careful training of minds naturally strong and thoughtful. rHOMINES TO MAURY. Fr m th* New T<rk Hati. A suit for breach of promise of mar riage has been brought to trial in Can ada that involves some (mints of gen era) interest. John Faulkner, a bach elor, owning property to the amount of forty or lilty thousand dollars, promised to marry Mrs. Jane Tillsoti, a widow whose husband had been oue of his tenants, and a written memo randum of the agreement was drawn tiji and a tiny set fur the ceremony. Very soon, however, Faulkner seem to have repented of his step, and when the day ap|Miiu(el for the marriage ar rived he was not ready to proceed aud the ceremony had to be post piled. He was always unprepared to enter upon matrimony when the decisive moment arrived ; hut Mrs. Tillson was always ready and clung to him (miieutly. Finally he seems to have struck upon the idea of treating her in such a rude and insulting manner in the presence of oilier prsotis that it would lie iuqmssilde lor her to submit to it without degradation. Hhe discon tinued her efforts to bring the mar riage about and commenced suit against him f r breach of promise, claiming damages in the sum of five thousand dollars. Faulkner did not improve in hit of fensive behavior before the plaintiff after the suit was instituted, hut when the case was called iu court for trial he took the whole foundation from under her feet by offering, through his counsel, then and there to marry her. It was plainly impoasihle lor her at that stage of their relations, with any sense of dereney or aclf reaped, to accept this offer; and yet the judge was forced to say that he did not see how the suit could be maintained un der the existing law if she declined it Breach of promise law, as frequent ly laid down iu the courts, ia peculiar ' -iu tbia respect. Iu other contracts, if there is a refusal to perform, the suit for damages for the breach is com menced, an offer lo carrv out the agreement is then too late; hut a dif ferent rule has beeu enunciated iu re spet to contracts tor marriage. flic plisi ii i iff s counsel argued that the defendant, by his intolerable con duct, hud made it impoasihle for her lo accept his offer at thai stage, und that this distinguished the ca*e from others; but Judge Cameron doubted tile soundness ol the distinction. "Moreover," said he, in effect, "the meaner you prove this defendant to have lawn the less damage do you prove, and the weaker do you make your ground Ibr recovering a verdict. V ou site for damage* incurred by this man's refusal to marry the plaintiff. In the first place, he say* he now is I willing Pi marry, and iu the second 1 place you show him to have lichuvcd so contemptibly that if he printed in his refusal it ought to In: regarded as a Is'iitfii rather ;hun an injury to her." Die (daiutiir's counsel argued that his ' eli- lit lost a share in the defendant's proprtv, to which she would have I been entitled as his wife. The judge, however, adhered lo his view ul the ( case, and ulftiough lie finally allowed j it lo go on trial it wus villi instruc tions to the jury that i au*-d them to very siM-edily bring iu a verdict for the def udaut.

The son held hack, further acquain tance with the tear seeming in sotue respect undesirable. "Count rnc out," snid he.
