[That was a grandletter written by Rev.—,
of Buffalo, accompanying the return of a com
plimentary pass to winter course of lectures
before Young men's Association. He it:abysm
the Committee that. his platy is punctually
paid, and that he is probably just as able to
pay for his ticket as many others who calculated
to attend the course; and furthermore that the
association were under no obligation - to him.—
It was all very courteously worded, but it was
a merited rebuke to that abominable habit
which dead-heads that class of people, or as
signs them a place in that interesting crowd
embraced in that last parting sentence on all
children in arms free, and under
ten years of age half-price."
Pay your clergymen their earnings like men
and place them above the necessity of receiving
your alms. They sacrifice alluring hopes of
gain—the certainty of fortune for the love of
their Master, their duty and you; and shame

whose fun is as fearless as his face is ugly.

To the gentleman's proposal I was obliged
to answer in the negative, and, on his press

be an insuperable obstacle. I did not think
it. prudent to add that hi, appeantnee and

so, I based my objections altogether upon
the fire company's expectations of meeting

straw-colored hair, combed back from his
forehead witha brush and a white cravat of'
ministerial proportions. He had dear little
hands encased m the meet delicate of gloves,
