These men arc like Haul, as fired with zeal he went froai Jerusalem to Daeiascus. ' In bis view all the followers of Jesus wcro traitors, deserving of chai.is.piis...., death ; 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., tiau minister 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 ter's Sermon on tho iMount, and scj if in their partisan zeal they had not forgot tho teaching, tha examplo and spirit of Him "who speak3 as.nover man spoko.

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.

Wo I expect to restore tho Union, to etay the carnage and suffering of war, and give back to all our people law, order and con stitutional li'ie.ty, with peace and pros perity. Aud Lr this wo arc denounced as traitors. If tho admission be made even that sla very was indirectly if not directly tho oauso of tho war, it by no means follows that il is oi- can be the legitimate o'ject of; the war. Sir. Ltncolu got up no such pretence iu the beginnitg it is a State not j a National institution ; it is hateful to me, I ... . . i to us all; v.e tiisiiue it we desire its overthrow will do all that is consistent with the Constitution of our country to abolish it ; but wc must tako things as they arc, allow reason and oonimon sonss to apt ly. I cannot consent to overthrow all the guarantees which secures liberty to U'lntn tcidi in n boollcs'i r.ni-i:iili nrrin,t slavery. If iu the btrmrslo to uphold the Constitution, to maintain the Government slavery bo iucideutly or accidenlly killed, I shall rejoice ; but when 1 too r groat people plunga into a hopeless, exterminat ing war for abolition, tho Constitution set aside, tho legitimate objects of war per verted, and with all, no good, even to the black man, promised, I think it is timo to pause, f x'imiue lho change, if wo can, thu policy so destructive of thu white man's rights, so liopuless for tho future ol our country, and with. no promise of perma nent advantage to tho bl.iek man, A Remarkable Hoax A singular hoax wai played upon Ihe Missouri Legislature recently.

F. Meagher on McClellan. On tho evening of tlio 27th of Oct., Oen. Thomas Fronds Sleaghot, dcliverod an address at Nashville, Tcnu., in sup port of Lincoln and Johnson, in which, to tho delight of a largo number of sold iers and Democrats present, and to the infinite disgust of the Lincoln men, includ ing the correspondent of tho Cinnciunati Gazette, from whose report we quote, ho passed n glowing eulogy on Slo'Clellan. Wo commend it to the attention of the ''Loyal Leaguers'' aud General Sl'Clel lan's slanders generally. (Jen, Sloaghor said : "Pionouncing in favor of tho Haiti more Gouventiou and its nominees, us a matter of course I pronouuoo against thu Chicago Convention aud the nominations emanat ing from it.

Tho Dishop of Illinois, in ti Ictier lo Judge Lawrence upon matters of local in torcst in which his "loyalty" had been questioned, thus concludes i I know nothing in which I have failed in my obedience and demonstrative loyal ty as a Dishop in tho Church of God. Theso things at least I have done.

WniTr.nousn, Dishop of the Diocese ol Illinois. 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. r,3P At the lato Presidential election iu ouo of the wards in Cincinnati, ono ballot was found, a straight Abolition ticket, with 'God forgive me lor this sin !' written on tho back of it A Contented Fanner. 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 melody. "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 the King. "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" "Yes, sir." "Put a hole through it," ordered th Captain. Tho -corporal sighted the gun, and when all was ready ho looked up and said : "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."
