From Bernard's Retrospectious'we copy
: following sketch of. an amusing, judi
cious sermon, preached in a little, chapel
near Sligo :
"My dear children You know that I
have been your Father and Comforter,
these six and twenty years next Feast of
Virgin; and you all of you know what
truble I've had in keeping Satan from ta
king hould ot 3rour sowls. Ay, you may
well look glum, but you are mighty sure,
every son of Adam among you, no that I
have worked hard enough. Hut will you
never, lave off votir abominable tricks 1
Will you never grow obedient! What!
you think you may sin as you plase the
whole week long, and come to me at the
end of the week for absolution. ' Then I
tell you what, darlings yon won't get it!
Arrah, now, Mr. Pat Mulooney, why
did you cock your eye on the pulpit, just
then ' I didn't say I meant you ; but now
j'ou'll give me lave to suppose so. 'And
you Mr. Philip O'Shugnessy you are ma
king a great bother with your nose and
throat, as if you had a big cowld; wait a
bit, darling, I'll come to you presently,
and mind if I don't tickle your rotten con
science to some tune.
"Does any one know Judy Ilryant? Oh
fo be sure every body knows poor Judy ;
and yet I dare say some of you will pre
tind to tell me that you never saw or heard
of such a crachur in all your born days.
jNow, couldn't poor Judy hang her blanket
out to dry her ounly blanket, on her oun
palings, but that the devil must put it in to
the heads of certain persons, whom, J at
this moment have jn my eye, to take fancy
to thd same ?; Well, Murtock O'Dou'nel, J
didn't say jt was you did it, although you
do look so fid-rely and flustered: nor vou
Tlarny McSharie: but. Remember I, said I
nad the person in my eve, do you T And
you, Meggy Flanagan, you can't sit asy in
your sate either: yet who would suspect
you- that hnvp ot a comfortable home,- and
your husband Teddy, one of the best cobb
lers in the country '!" He now deepened
his voice, and threw into his tone a very
impresssve solemnity. "Remember what
I have said, try children ! Poor Judy .Bry
ant lost her blanket! I have the big thafe
before me that stowl it; and if it is not re
turned to her before to-morrow morning,
I'll excommunicate him and all that be
longs to him ; and I'll have nothing more
to do with him in this world or the next !"
The terrific yell which was now sent
forth by the "children" drove us forth from
the chapel: but with the impression on
our minds that the man who could thus
combine the duties of the spiritual and the
civil magistrate was deserving, in the high
est degree of the public esteem ; for, how
ever Philosophy might cavil at the means
employed, Justice was benefitted by the
ends he obtained." '
The Hullinmre Clipper tells a story of a
Dutchman who went lo pay his Excellency
the President, a visit, lie happened to call
just as the President uml three others were
sitting down to dine. Tho President asked
him to be seated, and at the same time en

A singular and almost touching drama was
lntely. witnessed by tuoirmv of Fu'lieh sloop
of war, lately lOturced ffum a. voyage to the
seas of India. A hwu monkeys had been
put 011 board, w here they dejighte-d iho liirs
from morning till night 'with their frolics im'd

gambols. ' Some: however discontented with
tho short space allotted to them, broke loose
their chains, invaded the captain's cabin,
jumped over clmira: and tables,' fepilt the ink
on oiliuial documents, and behaved ill such
an inconsiderate maimer) that their death
was resolved upon and the warrant signed 011
the spot. The order of throwing the poor
innocent victims overboard was received
with general sadness on tho forward deck.
The old sailors, after a loiig consultation,
came to the conclusion that. a raft might bo
built, upon which tho'poor creiitnres might
at least find one chance of salvation. All
hands wero soon at work, and the raft com
pleted, a 'small mast wns mft.il fast to it, a
sail hnistnd ilk iho direction of the current t a
good supply of biscuits and cmekcrs and a
cask of water were put on bouul, uud tho
twelve outlaws were abaudoned to their un
happy fate. We have been ,told and wo
willingly believe that tho old, sailors were
moved even to tears,' and, waving their hats,
remained on "deck, watchiVig with anxious
solicitude, tho frail embarkation until it was
mft of srht, and disappeared towards the
land, where they hoped it might go ushoro

Tho following letter from Capt. Pearson of
the Oregnn; -which has 'been fiirhishcd to the
Commercial Adveftist fj further explains the
statement of Lieut. Kealo. ' ' '
At H A! M. (April l.j ran into the Bay of
SiuiFrhn'rieicd and seeing riiir squadron anchor
ed at Sansolito, I ran in there and had com
municaf'ion with Com.'' Jones, who' advised
me to come 'to anchor there, saying that if I
went to town I should loso nil my men J and
as I knew there were a great many of my
passengers who were disposed to assist the
crew to mil away,' nnd had agreed to hire
them nt high wages if they could get clear of
tho ship, I came to the conclusion to nnchnr
there, under tho guns of the Ohio, and send
my passengers to town. I chartered a bark
that evening for $50(1, nnd in one hours time
had her alongside and began to hoist out the
baggage, when my crew refused to do duty
I immedately slated the case to tho Com
modore, and he took a file of mares, nnd sent
them out of the ship. ( Tho rest of them we

to bring the ship to town, which 1 did as soon

Close by was an oat-housc and undef 'it

busily engaged in receiving thfl contents of

outside fled. Ho stepped lip to tho cellar
window and received tho pieces of pork from
the thief w ilhin, who, after a little while,
asked his accomplice, in a whisper, '-Shall

said softly, "Yes take it all, and the thief in

Imagino his consternation when, instead of
greeting his companion in crime, he was con
fronted by the Quaker. Both wefe aston
ished, for the thief proved to be a near neigh-'
bor of whom none would have expected such
conduct. He plead for mercy, begging the
old man not to expose him, spoke of the ne
cessities of poverty, nnd promised faithfully
never to steal again.
"If thou had'st asked mo for meat," said
the old man, "it would have been given thee,
t pity thy poverty and thy weakness, and es
teem thy family. Thou nrt forgiven."
Tho thief was greatly rejoiced, and was
nhout to depart, when tho old man said,
"Take the pork, neighbor."
"No, no" said tho thief, "1 don't want the
"Thy necessity was so great that it led
thee to steal. One half of the pork thou must
take with thee."
The thief insisted he could never cat a
morsel of it. The thoughts of tho crime
would make it choke him. Ho begged tho
privilege of letting it alone. But the old nian
was incorrigible, and, furnishing the thief
with a bag, and half tho pork put therein,
aud laying it upon his back sent him home
with it. Ho met his neighbor daily for many
yours afterwards, and their families . visited
together, but tho matter wns kept a secret ':
and though in after time the circumstance
wns mentioned, the tinme of the delinquent
wnnevor known. Tho punishment was se
vens and effectual-. It was probably his
first, and certainly his fast attempt to steal.
Had the man been arrainged before a court
of justice, and imprisoned for tho petty theft,
how different might have been the result.
His family disgraced, their peaeo destroyed,
the man's character ruined, and his spirit bro
ken. Revenge; not penitence, would have
swayed his heart, the scorn of the world
would havo blackened his future, and in all
probability he would havo entered upon a
course of crimo nt which, when the first of
fence was committed, his soul would havo
shuddered. And what would tho owner of
the pork have gained ? Absolutely nothing.
Kindness was the best punishment, for it
saved while it punished.
The following illustration in point is going
the rounds of tho newspapers :
Isaac Hopper, who was a member of the
Friends' Society in Philadelphia, once heard
a colored man, a painter by tho name of
Cain, a hardened wretch, using profane Inn
gunge, and the most horrid oath", while en
gngca in a street hgm; aim supposing per
suasion would have no ' effect ujirtn him,
he took him before a magistrate, who fined
him for blasphemy.' Twenty years after,
Isaac met Cain, while travelling, and ob
served that' his dress was tattered, and his
countenance care-worn. This touched the
Friend's heart, and lie stepped up and shook
hands with, and spoke kindly to the forlorn
being. At first Cain did not recognize him,
when tho Quaker said to him, "Dost thou not
remember me, and how 1 had thee fined for
"Yes, indeed, I do-' said the colored
"Well, did it do thee any good !''
No," said he, very gmfly, "not a bit; it
only made nie mad to havo tny money taken
Hopper then invited Cain to reckon up the
interest on the line, and paid him both prin
cipal and interest, and said at the same time,
"1 meant it fot thy good, Cain, and I am sor
ry I did thee any harm." Cain's countenance
changed the tears rolled down bis cheeks
he took the money with many thanks
became a quiet man, and was never after
wards heard to tlso an oath. ' '
Such was tho happy result of kindness.
It did what punishment could not do, '
