These men arc like Haul, as fired with

' In bis view all the followers of Jesus wcro

aud his party sent him out on his errand ' members mut have been when, on Satur
of dn,tructioii. but he was then no Chris-i l,c-v "ftornoon -two days later-Sir. W.,
then ho wai u' partisan of,
lho Jewish Saiihodrim he was beside him-
self with lanatieism-hc was following an
administration, bowing down to power;
und although he might have been very
lion st, ho was certainly very wrong ; aud
when Ihe High i.nd Lofty One touched
his heart, aud when the scales fell from his
cyr, und ho saw tho truth and became
imbued with tho temper, spirit and faith
ofjtsus. ho acknowledged his. error and
made confessiou of hb siu, uud how uu-
lik was Paul, lha Chilian, hcio and
minister, and Saul, tho titter, unrelenting
partisan and bigot. Again lot, theso min.
liters of tho Goncsoo Oonfurcnco contrast
their own harsh reso'ution with thoir .Mas

their partisan zeal they had not forgot tho
teaching, tha examplo and spirit of Him

I havu no doubt theso mistaken in on

and repeat when tho cxcitcniGnt of the can

son and right thoughts shall resumo con
trol ovor thorn, and that their folly will ap
pear as it is and they will ask tho Grea1
Head ol tho L'hurch to forgive ihcm. You
will mark that my complaint is not that
theso men aro Republicans that they
vote for Sir. Lincoln -that is their privi
lege; but it is iheir tleparturo from all
decency, Christian courtesy and charity,
and thoir wholesale miserable blenders
and denunciations of men as honest as
themselves aud whose ouly offence is a
difference in political opinion.

A singular hoax wai played upon Ihe
Missouri Legislature recently. Sir. Wolfe
of Platte county, a member oi the llouso

ceived by one of bis fellow members an

the namo of a prominent gcntleo-an, and
no dcult wai cntcrtaiucd of its genuine

was formerly mado known both in tho
House and Senate.
Thu customary eulogies were pronoun

Italian Tkaqkdy The Italian pa
pers givo an account of a torriblo tragidy
at Turin. Two lovers, finding an obstacle
o their union, resolved to saorifieo. The
young man wrote a letter to his lnctbor
and a letter to his sweetheart, Dosita, und
then blew out his brains. Kosita deter
mined to fchare her lover's fato, llor
family entreated her to bo calm ; fIio
seemed to yield to their prayer, but a day
afterwards nhe contrived to bo alouo, and
then putting a pistol to her heart, she
instantly cuded her lifo. Her mother hast
ened to l.cr daughter the moment she
heard tbo pistol's report. At the tight of
her blacding, dying child, tho poor wo
man's semes fled from her by emation,and
slu is uow in a nnd hou'o. llosita's
young sister was so struck by thin tragic
s.'cno, she attempted to heap foremost
from the window, and waj with the ut
most difficulty restrained.

Onoo upon a timo, Frodcriok, King or
Prussia, stirnamcd ''Old Frits," took a
rido,md opiod an oldarmor plowing hit
noro by tho wayside, cheerfully singing li'u
"You must be woll off, old man," saii
the king. "Doos this acre belong to yoc
on which you so industriously labor I"
''No, sir," replied tho larmcr,whoknow
not it was the King. 'I am not so noli
as that, I plow for uages."
"How much do you got oday I" asked
"Eight grosohca" (about twenty cents)
said the farmer.
"This is not much,'' replied the King,
''Can you got along wi:h ibis I"
"Get along and have something left."
"How is that?"
Tho farmer smiled and said.
"Well,if I must tell you two groschen
aro for myself and wife ; two I lend away
and two I give away for the Lords sake"
"This is a mystery whioh I cannot
solve, said tho King.
"Then I will solve it for you," said tha
farmer. "I have two old parents at home
who kept mo when I Was weak and need
ed help,and know that thoy aro weak and
need help 1 keep them. This is my debt
toward which I pay two grosohen a day.
The third pair of grosohen which I lend
away I spend for my children, that they
may receive a Christian instruction.
This will como handy to mo and my wife
when we get old With the last two ero-
! schen I maintain two sisters whom I could
not bo compelled to kcop. This is what I
givo for the Lord'3 sake."
Tho King, apparently well ploascd with
tho answer, said :
"Dravcly spoken, old man, Now 1 will
also give you something to guess. Have
you ever seen me beforo I"
''Ncvar'said the farmor.
"In lera than five minutes you shall ceo
mo fifty times, and carry in your pockot
fifty of my likenesses."
''This is a riddle which I oannot unrav
el," said tho farmer.
''Then I will solve it for you," said the
King. Thrusting his hand into his pock
et and counting him fifty bran new gold
pieces into his hand, stamped with his royal
likeness, he said to the astonished farmer
who knew not what was coming.
"The ooin is genuine, for it also cornea
from our Lord God, and I am his pay
master, i bid you adien."
CS- An officer down in Georgia tellj
the following story :
One night Gen. , was out on the
lino, and observed a light on the 111 oun-
! tain opposite. Thinking it was a. signal
' light of the enemy, ho remarked to Wu
Artillery officer that a hole could easily
bo put through it. Whereupon tne ollioor
turning lo the corporal in charge of fie
gun, said :
"Corporal, do you see that light l"
"Put a hole through it," ordered th
Captain. Tho -corporal sighted the gun,
and when all was ready ho looked up and
"Captain, that is tho moon."
"Dou't caro for that," was tho captain'i
ready responso, 'put a hole throu'h it, iu
tho General's order."
tf A Short time since, as a well
known master in a grammar school was
censuring a pupil for tho dullness of his
comprehension, and consenting to instruct
him in a sum in practice, ho said "Is
not tho price of a penny bun always a
penny V when tho boy innocently re
plied "No, sir ; thoy soil them for two
penco when thoy aro stale."
