,Iylsion of such ft, the competency of the

the fire-risk to its practicable minimum. A
bill for this purpe e, very elaborately min

since by Special Agent CRAWFORD of the
Treasury Department, and was laid_before
the House Committee on Commerce. Re
cognizing the very 'evident fact that the

very forcibly upon timperfections of ex

'much yet to be desired. Mr. Cutworm's
letter exhibits:n thorough acquaintance with
the subject, and the bill (H. R. No. 1872) is
- believed' to supply the reedful regulations
which would ensure as complete a protection
for life and property, in transit by water, as
can be afforded by the use of the best mi
terials. in construction, and by establishing
the highest standards for the skill and pru
deuce of the officers in charge of the vessels.
Very naturally,'-the topic of fatal steam
boat disasters leads the mind first to that
class of accidents 'reiulting from boiler 6x
plosions. A very large fatality has occa
sionally resulted &Tim collisions, from fire
and the various other method's of destruc

explo4ions, although seldom occasioning
any greater loss of life, suggest to every
mind ideas pecoliarlyrstnrtltnk and painful.
The suddenness of i their occurrence, the
complete helplessne; of those who are ex

is, in a majority of
,Orses, preceded by pro

Bishop Marvin, of the Southern Method*
Church, thus lovingly (?) speaks of the Meth
odist Episcopal Church: When Moloch
himself was satisfied with blood and plan'',
tier, there was yet an insatiable maw to be
appeased only by the franchises and prop-,
erty of the Methodist Episcopal Church

with a conscience seared by the crimes of
the war; with warm, bloody flesh of martyrs
sttil quivering upon its tusks, and an appe-j
tite for plunder which four years of ravin e
could not glut, but only whetted to super.
demon eagerness, plead with the conqueror

mid loose upon the domain and the prop-

The Congregational Convention of Ver
mont passed 'a resolution denouncing the
tendency of certain professedShrist* ns to
participate in popular forms of emus eat,
such as card-playing, billiards, the t eat'er,
the dance, as being dangerous and cious
in their influence.
The Presbyterians are fully , aroused; at
some places to the necessity of aggressive
movements, -by the erection of houses of
worship in destitute places in and near large
cities. The right spirit Is seen in the re
marks of Rev. Dr. Homblower, of Pater
son, New Jersey, who, in urging his people
to form a new church in the outskirts of
that txmgregatlon,•said : "All of yon who
live beyond street, go out there and be
organized into a church ; If it leaves half of
the pews vacant, we will see them ell filled
again in a few years." This is the right
