DEAR. BANiCER.:=Very unexpectedly to
myself, I have -passed. another ,Sabblith. in
Marquette. We stopped here int
to the fireeePti,P - llraget4illilotlitaaaih
day to kedp it holy.' 1. We had paid "our
fare through. to Superior. City, with the Priv
ilege of stopping off and taking the next
boat of the same line. Tha. boat was due
here last Wednesday. night, bat is their
haste to be back to Detroit before the sth. of
the month, they pasedii' this place without.
calling. After that, no boat passed up ran.
till Sabbath morning,' when there were , two
in ohm oueoession, one at tWO,andthietter
at eight A . M. We had already been here
a week, it an expense of between thirty and
forty dollars anti if theee opportunities pass,
we ma y he,lante another week, at

the contralto of'*,:il9t-verp-well filled 'purse,

or shall we "obeyer ( clod rather than" self
interest ? liVhetheigsfe: did right or not,
your readers may -decide for themselves;
we chose the litter,:age**‘lllola this ao
counts for our spending a second Sabbath in
Marquette. . •
I attended public worship ingeDgqining,
at the Methodist Episcopal ohunirhj , where I
heard a tolerably good eirairian'frarikrn
what declamatory preacher. There were a
number of wholesome Scriptural truths con
cerning the way of salvation, clearly!':set
forth. He distinctly asserted the vicarious
nature of Chriat'sgtufferings, arnitaughtthitr i

from the Epiecopal previous`
Sabbath, though, in , etlier -respects, inferior ,
tot It was , spoiled 'by What,,lif:miliVag4
meat, would spoil any sermon, in attempt'
in the conclusion to lash the people for not
paying their ministers better.
In - the afternoon, I again attended the
Presbyterian prayer-meeting, and heard read,
not another sermon from Starr King, but
the sermon -which Dr. Van Rensselaer,
preached at the opening of the late General
Assembly in New . Orleans. Verily, thought .
I, here is a place where extremes meet. It
was read verbatim throughout, not omitting ,
the "Fathers _ and brethren „ . of the General
AssemblY." I was glad to hear it (though
perhaps not the most appropriate selection
for aprayer-meeting,) especially 'as the first
part was a good antidote to the abominable
heresy which we heard the former Sabbath.
There are evidently some excellent men , in
this little Preebyterian Societyq '
In the evening I again attended service
in the Episcopal church, and after the usual
pray.ms.PpAlessons, heard atwenty-minuted
exhortation, not to lay up for ourselves

could exercise all their unusual powers within

Oil; 'John's " but?"
JOU was ftfteen ; he well knew it:was an
important crisis in' his character. Soon he
'Was•to,leave home for a counting-room in a
distant city. He wanted to enter it a Chris
tian boy. It would be so much easier, to
begfp,..so, tban. to change afterwards, for a
Christian le must be some time. He could
not for , a moment bear the thought of dy ,
tag Unfor'given.. 'Why not now, resolve that
himiell"would., serve the ..Lord?
There ,washis,l.g,but''.to hinder him.
One evening he 'went out to go ,to the
china: He walked very feat. " Hellcat,"
pried a boy, "etop;" and , three boys., ran
doin the steps of a house and followed him.
" Where are you going in such a :hurry?"
they asked. .•" Got .some business to'attend.
to, said John. . "Business ?" cried one,
laughing "go with us." " Can't said
John. "Ton can " cried they
" How shall I shake them off?" thought
John, anxiously: He passed the street in
Which the chapel stood. r John looked down;
he saw the lights, and the people going in.
'Why, not tell the boys where he was going,
and VOldly leave them? He was afraid to..
*He was afraid they would laugh at him. So
he walked on in their company until they
reached a hall where some foolish exhibi
tion, was ,going, on. "I've no money to
spend here," said John, suddenly turning,
and walking briskly away.
He nearly reached the chapel, when an
,other group of thezaeademyleye came
and made a• halt before the entrance.
"What's going on here ?" asked one. ."Some
,meeting or other," answered another, "where
they- knock ; religion into people.", It = was
bright moonlight. To avoid being seen, for
;you-'already perceive what John's difficulty
wari, he turned into a narrow passage leading
behind the building . "Oh dear," he eigbed
muoh,distress ,"; this,is the way I am los
ng.tho , evening." ~ 'He was indeed under
ilexdroppinge of thiPeanethary,. but in a very
ild4rikaOS'lallerft. kg would gually read be-
ing caught by his pious friends or his irreli
gious companions. John felt mean. And
what was worse, the boys sat down on the
steps of the porch, and so he was prevented
from making his escape at all. "If.l could
only hear," he thought, " and get a drop of
good." Nut as it was, only the singing was
of much account.
The nest Sabbath his teacher was very
tender in explaining the lesson to the class,
and mingled more than usual personal in
struction in it. John felt it, but he tried
hard not to show his feelings. He wanted
to feel inside, but not outside. He did not
wish the class to see it. He turned round
and looked another way. He tried to think
of something that had made him angry, in
order to brace his mind. Poor JOhn. He
went home feeling bad. "I want to be a
Christian. I *ant to repent and be forgiven,
but"—that was always the strain in which
he spoke to his mother ; and indeed her dear
boy seemed near to the kingdom of heaven;
why ,did he not enter in ?
A day or two afterwards, on returning from
the academy, he saw his minister on the
doorstep, knocking. No one had come to
the, door. John ran along and asked him
in "Perhaps there's nobody at_home, sir,"
said he. "I have come to see you, John,"
said, the minister kindly. The boy's heart
beat quick as' With some awkwi:rdiess he led
the way in and offered the gentleman a chair.
The-minister began' to talk in his very kind
way, and he drew, little by:little, a great deal
more out of John than he ever thought, he
could lave told; ydt it was far better that it
should . be so, in order that his minister might
understand his.diffteulties and help him out
' of them.
"Tliat'bue in your way, my young friend,"
he mid i "is the fear of the world; almost
every one is surroundefl by influences hostile
to piety, and it is trying to encounter the
cold, and, perhaps scornful looks of some of
your companions, which you are likely at
first to do, in becomin g a professed follower
of Christ. The fear of man is a snare,' which
you dread. ' The Lord Jesus 'foretold' all
this.; be, stated very plainly what his follow
ere might expect; :he described the sacrifices
they must make, and the trials they must en
dure for his sale. 'Whosoever he, be of
yon, that forsaketh not all that he bath, can
not be my disciple.' How stroagly is this
expressed. What a full giving up of every
thing does he ask. And yet he says, 'My
yoke is easy, and my burden`is light.' One
passage says it is' hard, another that it is easy
—the, conditions of service appear to con
tradict themselves. How is = this ? It is
hard to come to Jesus; because fear, pride,
and many difficulties hedge up the way.
But you must overcome them;; and when
this is dene, when the trials are boldly met
and the surrender once made and your heart
yields to God, you will find the yoke easy and
the burden light, and you will enjoy a peace
and happiness which the world cannot give
and which it cannot take front you"
IVhen the minister left, he invited
to the chapel that evening. The boy thanked
him, and promised to go ; and " I shall,"
he: said, to himself; " God helping me, I
'will." When' evening came, he wished his
mother was Ong, but she was not Well
enough; and he set off alone. He secretly
wished he might not , meet any of the boys,
but that trial had to be met; he had to make
a distinct choiee, his way to the chapel
that whom he "'would serve.. The
turning-points in people's lives are sometimes
'when they least expeet them, and they often
lie in a decision and, choice concerning eonio
Seemingly- small thing le. `John's 'ea§p:
was abruptly brought to a turning-peint.
" Where are you going, John ?" asked
Sam Kinsman, a hard sort of boy, who had
little respect for either God or man. .
"To the prayer-meeting at the chapel,"
"Going to have religion aerkedr, i n n you?"
eyis, answered John—and it
seemed to him, as he said it, that a burden
rolled from his back ns it did from Pilgrim's.
His step became lighter and freer.
The chapelicas fall. And when the hymn,
"Not'ashamed of Jams," was sung, at the
lines 1 •

On who& my hOpes of heaven depend"—

John's heart melted, tears ran down his
cheeks, and, I don't think ho si ttvould have
oared, then if the Whole World saw him.

Corn for Fodder.
MESSRS. EDITORS : :—May I just, hint to
the farmer 'readers of the Recorder, that
the proper time to sow corn for fodder is
from the list to the.2oth of Jane ?
And for this Puiliose I mist say that it
exceeds every other grain in my opinion,
giving a larger aniount and abetter quality,
of good succulent food than any, of the
other grains, either for soiling purposes or
for , Winter fodder. Sow on any geed corn
land, no matter how rich, in drills three feet
disiant from each Other, some three bushels
to the, acre, or say thirty or forty kernels to
the foot in the drill.
If the soil is quite rich, use our, common
Dutton or the eight-rowed variety, though
the Stowell Sweet is preferred where it can
be ohtained in sufficient quantity; and if
-not very rich, use the Southern eeed, as this
will give a larger burden on such soils.
Cover, by running a corn-plow carefully on
r each side of the drill. • When about six•
inches high, cultivate with horse hoe,
or cultivator, and the labor is performed
until harvest. If designed for Winter
food, eat arid stack in small. shocks well
put up previous to frosts in the Autumn, and
allow it to remain in the field until Winter;
then store lightly in the barn on poles or on
the top of the hay mow, where it will have
plenty of air. '
A very large amount of good Winter feed
for cattle can be ,obtained in this way; not
less than five to- eight. tons per acre, and if
well. cured, is equal -in every respect (and
probably superior for' mulch cows,) to good
timothy hay.--Bostrint Recorder..
To Destroy Bugs on'Vines.
Ma. Rome noticed in the Farmer,
of June 5, an account of "A New Tine
Protectorr which seems to me to be a little
more expensive, and to require more time to
arrange and put away, when not required for
use, than one invented `and constructed by
mySelf. I have used it'for the last five years
with perfect success, audit never has failed
to perform its duty, I take an old flour bar
rel that is watertight, and put in one bushel
of hen manure, then fill the barrel about
two•thirds hill of soft water, stirring it, well
once in two or three days ; set it in a sunny
location, and at the end. of
be ready for use, although it would be better
to stand five or six When
,'the bugs my
vines a -visit; I take a‘pail and with a swab
made7by, tyik a @tick ; about eighteen
incites 10ng,.4 sprinkle the'. liquid:' over l'ths
leaves - and upon the hill around the plants,
putting to each hill about three table spoon
fulls, and they invariably take leave. The
application should be made about once a
week ; the liquid will also be beneficial to
the vines. This protector comes 'within the
reach of all farmers, and can be had without
cost, as no patent right is applied for. It can
also be mixed in larger or smaller quantities,
to suit each persona I have procured from
a friend at Marblehead, some of the celebra
ted Hubbard squash seeds, and if they can
stand what the bugs cannot, (alp protector)
I shall probably raise some fine squashes, as
they are now up and looking well.—Ncto
The common vice of jumping and throw , -
ing down feriae is taught to cattle, with
scarcely an exception, by their owners and
care takers. Fences half down soon fall by
the rubbing of cattle, and teach the first
lesson, especially if cattle have any shrewd
ness in observing cause and effect. Very
fine feed just over a poor fence, is the next
lesson; letting down bars and fence to the
calves, from laziness, so that the animals
have to leap, is the third lesson--and this
last is often first, second .and third with
sheep, until they will scale anything. These
three lessons are usually enough, but a
fourth is often added,..namely, placing one
additional rail on the fence each , successive
day, as they become more skillful, for the
ostensible object 'of keeping the jumper
within bounds, but really operating as a
most ingenious contrivance to teach the art
of vaulting. We have heard of French
being " taught in six lessons ;" but very few
animals require more than the above four to
enable them to take a " French leave" of
any, ordinary inclosure.
Norway has a population of about a mil
lion and a quarter of inhabitants, who are nom

Wool in Great Britain..
The annual produce of woolin England
and Wales is estimated e at abont 120.000,000
lbs., ' and the export of, raw wool, about
30,000,000 its. The consumption in Eng
land is about 280;000,000 lbs. Each inhab
itant is 'said to consume annually the prodrice
of'6 9-10 lbs. of wool.
It is stated that in this country the Re
formation, which centuries ago was forcibly
put down, seems about to break forth again,
many of the Roman Catholic priests being
ready to leave their Church. One wholes

An Unsafe Counselor.
A young lady, residing near Bros*, in
Italy, consulted her priest as to investing
forty thou Sand francs, whieh she had re
ceived. On the next night, two masked
and armed men entered her room and de
manded that she should. deliver up, the
money, on pain' of instant death. A visitor
healing her shrieks, rushed to her room,
shot •one of the men dead, and disarmed and
arrested - the other? when-it was found that
the one'who was killed was the 'priest, and
the other was his assistant.

An Interesting Incident.
During the services of the Union prayerl
meeting at the Town Street M. E: church,
Dr. Awl showed a pocket Bible, and related
,an interesting. incident connected with it.
He stated that it belonged to a gentleman
who was ' a soldier in the English army in
the wars against Napoleon, who was a pray
ing, man, and was much exercised in .mind
respecting his situation. His mind was di
rected to, the verse of one of the Psalms,
which reads.; " A thousand shall fall at thy
side, and ten thousand at thy right hand;
but it shall not come, nigh thee." This
,made a great impression upon him. On the
morning of , the battle of Waterloo, he read
his „Bible, es was, his custom, and instead of
placing it in his knapsack, he placed it in
his haversack. The division to which he
was attached was not called into action until
three o'cleck in the afternoon: He went
into the battle, and during the fight the
Book was pierced with two bullets. It
saved his life: At the conclusion of liis
rennirke, he returned the book to the owner,
who was sitting in one of the pews. He is
now an old man, and still continues in 'the
service of the Captain of our salvation. He
reside:: in this city, and his name is Ross.—
Ohio State Journal.
An Interesting 'Discovery.
We saw it stated upon what may be eon
aidered reliable authority, that thirty thou
sand Christians hatie recently , been found
updii an island North of Celebes. It had
been rumored`for a time, that there was there
a Christian people, forgotton and forsaken,
which, however, yet possessed three Bibles,
and continued steadfast in the faith. When
missionaries first landed on the island, they
met ,with a school teacher and his pupils,
who repeated in the Maylayan tongue, "As
the hart panteth after the water brooks, so
panted" my soul after thee, 0 Lord." No
Bibles were found, but Alm most precious
promises of the Bible written upon the bark
of trees. They knew the Apostles' Creed,-
and the Heidelberg Catechism, and -had
"Christian customs. Twenty churches and
.gbhools yttzexisted. .ahrough- the-inetru.
mentality of pastor Heldring,, founder of th e
Magdalen Asylum at Steenbeck-, and ci l ki
patron of Inner Alissions in Holland, f o ,,
missiona r i es , who had been educated uc t i"
the venerable Gossner, were sent out, atd
three thousand persons baptized.
This is certainly a most interesting
oovery. The island on which these U r i,.
tians were found belongs to the Bast India
Archipelago. The Dutch have for y r ... 1,
had political rule in this region. This in ;y
account for the original introductio n
Christianity amongst this people, and for til t .
fact that the Heidelberg tiatecilism e a :
still found in their possession. But still
