NARROW ESCAPE. —On Sabbath night,
the 6th inst., Rev. R. J. Coulter and fam
ily wero awakened from their slumbers
by a strange and unusual noise and a smoth
ering Bensation. To their surprise and as
tonishment their dwelling was on fire. The
firchad communcatcd with a frame partition
which was in flames, and, from all appcar
ancos, it was thought, the dwelling must
be consumed ; but not despairing, Mr.
Coulter and family went to work without
delay to extinguish the flames; and, with
the assistance of some of their nearest
neighbors, they finally succeeded in mas
tering the flames, and thus saved house
and furniture, although both were much
—dftThaged. We have not been informed
how or by what means the fire occurred.
Persons should be careful to examine
the different departments of their dwell
ings before retiring to rest, in order to
guard against fire. The numerous friends
of Mr. Coulter and family, we have no
doubt, will feci ranch gratified at this
seemingly Providential escape of himself
and family.
CHURCH.—The New Presbyterian Church
of Butler was dedicated to the service of
God on Wednesday last. The day was
propitious, and a large oongregation as
sembled, composed of the members of the
various churches of the place, and of stran
gers from a distance. After invocation,
by Rev. David Hall, and reading the
Scriptures, by Rev. E. Ogden, with sing
ing an original hymn ; Rev. Wm. I>. How
ard, D. D., of Pittsburgh, made the ded
icatory prayer. Afterward he preached
on the text: "Ye shall reverence my Sanc
tuary." The discourse was one of great
learning and [tower; and it was listened
to with marked attention.
The Pastor, Rev. Loyal Young, deliv
ered a brief address, giving an account of
the advancement of the congregation, step
by step, since its organization. He stated
among other things, that Rev. Dr. Niblock
had been pastor of his church [the Uni
ted Presbyterian] for forty-four years;
that the Rev. Wm. White had boon pas
tor of the Episcopal church for twenty
six years; and, that he (Rev. Young) had
been pastor of the Presbyterian church
for thirty years. Their combined panto
rates would equal one hundred years. He
also stated that the church had been built
at a cost of about six thousand dollars;
that it had been paid for; and that, with
the exception of about eighty dollars, the
• expenses of its erection had been borne
entirely by the congregation.
A contribution was then called for to in
in payiug for the furniture and
• other necessary improvements, which re
sulted in a sum of taro hundred and twen
i ty-five dollars; the people of the different
• churches present contributing liberally.
The new church is an ornament to our
At Jialf past six o'clock, Rev. David
Hall prettc&ed a sermon of rare excellence
and beauty, which enchained the audi
ence, inspiring them witfo love to the Sanc
tuary. The occasion throughout was one
of special interest.

THE N'FXT DRAFT. —In accordance
with instructions issued by Provost Mar
shal General Fry, the Provost Marshals
of the different districts are preparing for
the draft to take placo on the s'h of Jan
uary next, in the event of a failure to fill
our quota by enlistments. The new order
will result in furnishing more men than
the last as the exemptions are to be heard
before and not after the drawing. The
Marshals arc required to post up in con
spicuous places in their districts, the list
of all the names now in the wheel, and
from which the draft is to be made on the
sth of January. Citizens who find upon
examination that persons have been omit
ted from this list, are requestad to report
at headquarters, and all who claim exemp
tion from the draft will be required topre
sent themselves before the Board before
the 20th of December. Thus the exemp-
I tions will be passed upon before the draft,
and the consequence will be that when the
j names are drawn on the sth of January,
the Government will secure more men in
response to its call than under the former
system. The list of names required to be
posted have already been issued, and all
who claim to be exempt should see to it
that their case is disposed of before the
20th of this month. In view of the fact
that there is little doing in the way of en
listments, the prospects for a draft are very
bright for those who admire the later mode
of raising troops.
JSȣr' Divers and sundry are the an
ecdotes extant about old Parson Mil
ton, who whilom did "blow the trum
pet of Zion," in the venerable town
of Newbury port; but there is "one
left." A party of the good citizens
of that town took it into their heads
to make a trip to the Isle of Shoals ;
among the rest was our good parsoD.
A few hours out, a terrible squall
arose—the boat could just live under
it—every cheek was pale—the minis
ter was as frightened as the rest. —
"Mr. Milton," said one of the com
pany, "we marvel much that you
should be alarmed in danger—-a saint
like you, in case you are drowned,
would of course goto heaven."—"All
right," replied the eccentric man of
; God, "but I don't wish togo there by
water /"

j * There's nothing true but heaven."
Experience, dearly purchased experi
- ence too, has testified to the same effect
Itissaid thatalady once came suddenly up
. on an Etrurian monument, in which then
- was just aperture enough to see, for 112
moment only, a sitting figure with its 100l
- ' and drapery of more than a thousand years
she beheld it for a few seconds, preserved
only in the stillness of antiquity, when ti
■ fell to dust at her breathing. Such is the
world to its pursuers, beautiful in per
spective, dust in possession ! These testi
monies you now find it difficult to believe.
< From the gay dream-land of your youth
| the world appears a scene of surpassed
loveliness and peerless beauty. You sec
nothing but bewitching gardens and sunny
vales tastefully filled with green trees, gay
singing birds, warbling delicious music,
lovely flowers, and cool fountains glancing
in the sunbeams. To these you add mul
titudes of joyous youth who sport away
the flying hours in the highest excitement
of unmingled delight. Such to your im
agination is the brilliant future of a world
ly life! Alas! alas! My heart is pain
ed at the bare thought of your certain dis
appointment, for full well I know that
these dreams will have no fulfillment.—
These ideal pictures, created by the en
chantment of your fancy, will change to
rude, rough, bitter realities, when touched
by the wand of that more than magician,
Experience. Could I convince you of
this, young pilgrim in the journey of life,
you might be saved from many an hour of
sorrow, perhaps from the jaws of destruc
tion itself; open your heart, therefore, to
conviction, for " a ttrise man icill hear, and
will increase learning ; and a man of ttn
demtanding shall attain unto wise eonn
seh." Supposo for a moment, that you
were suffering very severely from hunger,
and were even on the point of actual star
vation. In this extremity you look im
ploringly toward an approaching friend,
and with your expiring strength exclaim.
" Give me food for pity's sake ! I am dy
ingofhungcr! Give me something to eat,
my friend !" Your friend gazing upon you
with a pitying eye, promises to bring you
instant relief, lie hastens away, but spee
dily returns laden with dusty tomes, the
works of the ablest minds and profound
est thinkers among mankind. Throwing
them into your arms, he exclaims, " Here,
my friend, are some of the finest books ex
tant. They contain the loftiest produc
tions of genius, and teem with the noblest
ideas. Feed upon them freely nn<l satisfy
your gnawing hunger." I can easily im
agine the look of wonder and indignation
with which you would receive the strange
communication, and the sharpness of the
tone in which you would cry, " Books!
Ideas ! I want bread, not ideas ! Who
ever heard of ideas being offered to a man
in my condition ? Sir, if you pity me,
Give me bread:' Now I contend that
such an offer of ideas to satisfy the pains
of hunger would be as truly consistent as is
your attempt to gratify the wants of your
soul with the world. Your friend is sup
posed to offer thoughts —immaterial idea*
—to satisfy a material or physical want.—
You offer your spiritual nature material
food, and command it to be satisfied ! Is
not the supposition as consistent as the
fact t Is not the one thing as impossible
as the other ? Remember, therefore, that
the high nature you possess, the spiritu
ality of your inner principle, renders satis
faction in the things of this world impos
sible. The lofty aspirations, the earnest
yearnings of your spiritual nature, will ev
er turn with unutterable disgust rom " all
that is in the icorld, the lust of the flesh,
and the. lust of the cyes, and the pride of
life," as beneath the demands of its infi
nitely superior capacities. It aspires af
ter communion with the mind of God, it
longs to climb eternal heights. Will you
doom it to trail its glories in the dust ?
You may crush its noble aspirings. You
may enslave it to the fleshly and the visi
ble, but in so doing you insure its present
uneasiness and its eternal misery. Is the
world worth the price ? Permit me to
bring another illustration to this great
question. Imagine yourself bound to take
an European voyage. Your residence is
some hundred miles or more from the port
of embarkation. You gather your outfit,
pack your trunks, and take your depar
ture from home. But such has been the
confusion attending your preparation, and
the excitement of leaving your friends,
that, after starting, you find yourself with
out letters of introduction, and with bare
ly means enough to carry you to the port
from whence your vessel is to sail. Now,
with this discovery, could you take r.ny
real pleasure in your journey 1 The riv
er boat in which you sailed might bo us
gorgeous in her apartments and furniture
as the palaoe of an Eastern calif. The
scenery around you might be as lovely as
the vale of Tcinpe. The companions of your
voyage as cheerful as Mirth. The table
furuished with all imaginable delicacies.
Yet a thought of your embarrassment at
the termination of your inland journoy
would be a frost upon your heart, effectu
ally cooling the ardor of enjoyment. "What
shall I do without means or friends 112"
would be the ghostlike question haunting
you every hour, filling you with unrest
and alarm. Do you comprehend my mean
ing, traveler to the bouudless future ?
Know you not that
"Oar lire* are gliding free j
mm 112
Know you not also that your Immortal
soul is conscious of wants beyohd the qui
et tomb ? Is it enough to ofter that un
dying nature gifts and goods which mutt
be lr.fl at the grave's mouth ? Does not
the knowledge that it has no passports, no
preparation for that voyage into immensi
ty, cause it to shrink fearlessly from its
perils ? And can the costliest delights of
earth quiet its fears or satisfy its desires ?
Nay ! It is impossible ! Your immortal
nature cries aluud for sources of enjoy
ment at enduring as itself. Givo it this
world only, and you doom it to disquiet,
fear, and sorrow. "Fe cannot serve God
and mammon," and know ye not that the
friendship of the world it enmity tcith God?
Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the
i world it the enemy of God!" Choose,
then, between this manifestly unsatisfy
ing world and the salvation of your soul!
The issue is plainly before you. Take
j this world and Its short lived vanities, and
| you shall lose the favor of God ! heaven !
| your soul ! Or. givo up the world, and
■ God will give you himself, and save you
| with an everlasting life; for the fear of
! the Ijord temleth to fife, and he who hath
1 it shall abide satisfied ; he shall not be t i»
; ited tcith evil."
Hid your idol adieu, therefore, saying
with Sir Henry Walton :
"Farewell, j-e gilded follies, plowing troubles!
Farewell, ye honored rags, ye glorious bubbles!
Fame's but a hollowech; (told, pure clay;
Honor, tbo darling but of on* short day;
Beauty, the eye's idol, but a damask'd akin;
State, but a golden prtaon to lire in,
And torture free born mind*; embroidered trains,
Merely but pageants for proud swelling veins:
* * * *
Fame, honor, beauty, utile, trnin, bl«>od and birth,
Are but the fading blossom* of the earth.
Report of tho Ordinance Bureau gives
an interesting view of the enforced
progress of work in that important
| branch of service. The naval ordi
j nance at the beginning of 18(31 con
! sisted of 1,872 thirty-twos, 675 eight
i inch, 805 nine-inch Dahlgrecns, ten
j inch, old and new, 32 eleven-insh
I Dahlgrecns; making 2,830 heavy guns
with 29 twenty-fours, 107 twelves,
and 136 boat howitzers. We have
now 1,202 howitzers of all kinds, 1,-
872 thirty-twos, 575 eight-inch, 808
nine-inch Dahlgrecns ten inch, old and
new, 323 eleven inch Dahlgrens, 56
ten inch, old and new, 323 eleven inch
Dahlgrecns, 200 thirteen inch mortars
214 twenty pound Parrots, 237 thirty
pound Parrots, 180 one hundred-pound
Parrotts, 60 one-hundred.and fifty
pound Parrotts, 13 twenty-pound ri
fled Parrotts,and 36 fifteen inch smooth
bores; in all, 5,777 pieces, against
2,966 in 1861. Over 700 more guns
; of the new sort will bo done before the
I year closes. Several new foundericfl
| have been started, and the moans are
I now equal to the demand. The enor
mous omount of projectiles used may
be seen in the following figures:
Shells, made and bought, 678,617;
shot, 80,392; sharpnell, grape, and
canister, 9443,948 pounds. Of gun
powder 2,980 tuns have been ordered
: since March 1, 1861—of which 2,676
tuns were from foreign niter. The
report details operations in small
arms, gun carriages, fuses, &c. All
this appertains to the Navy alone.—
The report says:"The general effi
ciency of the ordinance of our Navy
far excels that of any other, its supe
riority being due mainly, or wholly,to
| tho improvements of the last two
years. Further extensive improve
ments are in contemplation, and esti
mates in accordance arc presented to
VlCTOßY. —Decisive news at last
from East Tennessee, news more glo
rious and infinitely inoro important
than if we had heard of a battle and
a victory slmost any where else. The
siege of Knoxville is at an end. The
Rebel effort to regain East Tennessee
is abandoned forever. Longrtreet is
in full retreat toward Virginia, our i
cavalry pursuing.
The country may breathe freer.— |
We can hardly realize the tremendous j
I peri" we have escaped. EastTennes- j
| see was so long neglected that its val
uo even now is only half understood, j
yet it is true beyond question that the i
loss of it is absolutely fatal to the
Rebel Confederacy. Our possession j
of it makes the miltiary subjugation ;
of all the territory which still owns j
the lawless sway of Jefferson Davis
only a question of time. Nothing but
despair could have driven the Rebels
to abandon their effort, and the con
viction that it can never be recovered j
will be equally potent to paralyse their j
operations in other quarters.
It does not seem clear whether
Longstreet is likely to be overtaken,
or his retreat seriously interrupted.
But that is of less moment. We are
satisfied to learn that Sherman and
Foster are in pursuit, and will do what
is possible to destroy the Rebel force
which they have helped to defeat.—
Their arrival doubtless determined tho
raising of the siege, but the credit of
the defense is General Burnside's
alone. His whole campaign has been
a masterpiece, and his final stand at
Knoxville is what saved us the State
and shortened by many months the
duration of the war.
t&" Advice is almost the only commo
dity which the world is lavish in bestow
ing, and scrupulous in receiving, although
it may be had gratis, with an allowance to
those who take a quantity. We seldom
take it until too late, and still more rarely
while there is yet time to profit by it.—
Great tact and delicacy are required either
in conferring or seeking this perilous boon,
for, where people do not take your counsel,
they generally take offence; and, even
where they klo, you can never be sure that
you h*v© BO*. given pain in grvißg advice.
SIGNS OF DEATH. —The Quarterly
Review has a curious article on the
dying moments of distinguished per
sons. The case of Cardinal Wolsey
is well known. The morning before
he died, he asked Cavendish the hour
and was answered past eight. "Eight
of tho clock," replied Wolsey, "that
cannot be—eight of the clock ! nay
nay, it cannot bo eight; for by eight
of the clock you shall lose your mas
ter." 110 miscalculated the day, the
hour came true. On tho following
morning, as the clock struck eight,
his troubled spirit passed from life.—
Boerhaave lay feeling his pulse till
some newly published work he wished
to read had arrived. lie read it, and
exclaiming that tho business of life
was passed, died. Miss Linley died
singing, "I know that my Redeemer
livcth." Napoleon fought his battles
over again, and his closing words were
"tetc d'armee;" Lord Tcnderden,
who passed straight from tho judg
ment seat to tho death-bed, fancied
himself still presiding ut trial, and
l expired with, "Gentlemen of the Ju
ry, you will now consider your verdict."
j Dr. Adam, author of the "Roman An
| tiquities," imagined himself at school
disbursing praise and censure among
pupils. "But it grows dark," he
said, "the boys may dismiss," and
fnstanftj died.
TUTION.—New Yo»l-, Dec. 18.—Tho
Tribune's Washington t>yccial hits the
following account of a a
mendment to the Constitution of
which Mr. Wilson of lowa gave nv.
tiec on Monday in the House:
Be it Resolved, by the Senate and
House of Representatives of the Uni
ted States of America, in Congress
\ assembled, (two-thirds of both Houses
! concurring,) That the following arti
! Ole be proposed to the Legislatures of
| the several States as an amendment
|to the Constitution of tho United
I States, which, when ratified by three
i fourths of said Legislatures, shall be
valid to all intents and purposes as a
I part of said Constitution, namely:
Sec. 1. Slavery being incompati
ble with free government, is forever
prohibited in this country, and invol
untary servitude shall be permitted
only as a punishment for crime.
Sec. 2. Congress shall have full
power to enforce the foregoing sec
tion of this Article by appropriate
EXCKLLKNCE. —"ExceIIence," says Sir
Joshua Reynolds," is never granted toman
but as the reward of labor. It argues, in small strength of mind to persevere
in habits of industry, without tho pleas
ure of perceiving these advantages, which,
like the hands of a clock, whilst, theymoke
steady approaches to their point, yet pro
ceed so slowly as to escape observation".
