Duties of .Tliuisters. 

Many of our clergymen are in the 
Iiabit of complaining that their congre- 
gations do not evince that earnest in- 
terest in a preached Gospel which 
should be the result of 'a life-long pro- 
fession of the Christian faith. Aiieiid- 
aace on Sabbath exercises and the ordi- 
nances of religion becomes a mere habit 
to many, while not a few make their at- 
tendance periodical, visiting church oc- 
casionillv for appearances’ sake, or be- 
cause they have no more inviting way 
of spending the particular Sabbath 
which is to be used to bring up tlie ir- 
regular religious account which they 
keep with tlieir own consciences, the 
church and the pa.sior. The thought 
has often presented itself to our mind 
that ministers of religion shoulil lay at 
their own doors, rather than at those of 
their flock, the of much of the 
lukewarmness and indifference over 
which they so frequently and sincerely 

It is not every minister of the Gos- 
pel who studies sufficiently to make his 
p, caching agreeable to his hearers. And 
when we speak of making a sermon in- 
viting and agreeable, we are fat from 
meaning that it should be free from any 
lioctrine to offend ^prejudices, and a- 
b'jund in eloquent and richly ornament 
cd periods, pleasing to the eat but un- 
iinproving to the mind or heart. But 
as the mission of ministers of the Gos- 
pel ii- -‘to win souls to Christ,” they 
should study so to direct llieir labors as 
to effect tliis great result. As a firs, 
step they must either go out to the peo- 
ple and persuade lliein to a iileof iuili 
ness, or they must succeed in drawing 
the people into thet hurch, to be taught 
those things which concern their tem- 
poral and eternal welfare. 

In the next place, the teach in g should 
be practical, and suited to the capacity 
of every hearer, whether wise orsiinple, 
learned or unlearned. Preachers too of- 
ten indulge in long, dull, prosy sermons, 
which put some hearers to sleep, tax the 
patience of others, and are pleasing to 
very lew. Some love to expatiate on 
abstract questions of faith, or on dis- 
puted points of discipline, and though 
their discourses might be interesting if 
delivered to students of ilieology, or to 
a body of learned men. they do not 
touch the hearts and consciences, or ap- 
ply to the every day life of those com- 
posing their congregations. It is the 
duty of ministers to leach what i^ the 
will and mind of God, but they should 
do it so as to make their flocks wise un- 
to salvation rather than skilful in con 
troversy. The aim should be to make 
good Christians — to build them up in 
the faith and practice of the Gospel, in- 
stead of building them up as zealous 
rnembersof this or tliat denominationa I 

Again, preachers should be close ob- 
servers of passing events, so that they 
may be “instant in season.” It is very

We sometimes meet with men who 
.seem to think that any indulgence in an 
i a fleet ioiia le feeling i.s weakness. They 
will return from a journey and greet 
their families with a distant dignity, 
and move among their children with the 
cold and lofty splendor of an iceberg, 
surrounded by its broken fragments. — 
riicre is hardly a more unnatural sight 
on earth, than any one of these families 
without a heart. A father had better ex- 
tinguish his boy’s eyes than to take away 
his lieart. Who that has experienc- 
ed the joys of friendship, and knows 
the wuriii of sympathy and affection, 
would not rather lose all th«t Is beauti- 
ful ill nature’s scenery than to be robbed 
of the hidden treasures of his heart? — 
Who would not rather bury his wife 
than to bury his love for her? Who 
would not rather follow his wife to the 
grave than to entomb his parental afl'ec- 
lion? Cherish then your heart’s best af- 
fections. Indulge in the warm and 
gushing emotions of fillial, parental and 
fraternal love. Think it not as weak- 
ness. God is love; love everybody and 
everything tha t is lovely. Teach your 
children to love; to love the rose; the

But when I came to iny.self again, and look- 
ed up at him, Isaw that he was once mure in 
the stern-sheets of the boat, and sealed as at 
first. The moon still shone brightly down upon 
u.s — the gale still blew; it was a fiarful wind, 
and the lioat was strained, and leaking in ma- 
ny i arts, and the sea was constantly dashing o- 
verus. Still he sat steadily there, and steering

hut it was notso; tlie shifting of the lights and 
shades, by the motion of the hoat, made this ap- 
pearance. He AA 8S not laughing.

their shaggy brows; but there was a rigidity a-

When once a concealment or ileceit 
has been practiced in matters where all 
should be fair and open as the day, con-

Error is the cause of man’s misery, the 
corrupt principle that has produced evil 
in the world; 'tis this which begets and 
ciierislies in our souls all the evils that 
afflict us, and we can never expect a true 
and solid happiness, but by a serious en- 
deavor to avoid it. 

Falsehood is not only one of the most 
humiliating vices, but sooner or later it 
is most certain to lead to serious crimes. 

Industry, well directed; will give a 
man competency in a few years. The 
greatest industry misapplied is useless.

my seat to study in; my knapsack xvas 
■ny bookcase, and a bit of board lying 
in my lap was my writing table. I had 
no money to purchase candles or oil; in 
winter, it was rarely that I could get 
any light but that of the Are, and only 
my turn even of that. To buy a pen 
or even a piece of paper, I was com- 
pelled to forego some portion of food, 
though in a state of half starvation. 1 
had not a moment of time that I could 
call my own; and I had to read and write 
amid the talking, laughing, singing, 
whistling, and bawling of at least half 
a score of the most thoughtless men — 
and that, too, in the hours of their free- 
dom from all control. Amt 1 say, if I, 
under these circum'stancep coiild en- 
counter and overcome the task, is' there 
—can there be, in the whole word, a 
youth who can find an excuse for the

An Irtsh Gbace. — Some years ago, 
wlien the Duke of Devonshire paid a 
visit to his estates in Ireland, the stew- 
ard of the mansion at whicli his Grace 
intended to sojourn called all the domes- 
tics together lo tell them how to de- 
mean themselves, saying, among other 
things, that their master was much 
higher than a lord — he was a duke; ‘and’ 
said he quaintly, ‘whenever he speaks 
to you, you must say ‘your grace.” — 
This made a deep impression on a house- 
maid whose province it was to conduct 
the duke to his sleeping apartments. — 
When on the stairs the duke said, good 
humoredly, “'Well, my girl, what is 
your name?’* The girl, thinking of the 
steward's injunction, put up her bands 
and began, “For what lam going to re- 
ceive, the Lord made me truly thankful.”

! The murdered in an Irisltman. Patrick 
iJonogbuc by na ITU*. The. victims were 
: the wife uud cliild of Daniei Kinney, 
w ho resides near the sash factory, just 
j south of the village of Truxton. A 
daughter of Donoghiie's had been miss- 
ling lor several days, and he pretended 
I to believe that Mrs. Kinney had stolen 
the child. On Tuesday afternoon, IMrs. 
K. and her daughter passe l Donottgue 
ill the Street, near his residence and re- 
inarke*! to him lliai slie did not believe 
that lie would eiersee his girl again. — 
Upon this, D. went into his liouse, and 
immediately came out with a shotgun 
in his hand, aiul accompanied by his 
wi.‘‘e, who had a rifle. He followed af- 
ter Mrs. K., and; coining up with her, 
struck her a blow with the butt of bis 
gun on the back of the bead, which fell- 
ed her lo the ground, and as she fell be 
struck her another blow which broke her 
neck. Mrs. -K.’s daughter rail w ith all 
her .cpeerl f»ona the murderer, when he 
snatrlied the rffle from h’s wife and shot 
the girl dead. D. then reloaded his ri- 
fle and went lo the sash factory, saying 
that there were two men there whom he 
would shoot. He finally went to a tav- 
ern in the village, and there he. repcat- 
eil iliatthern were two persons in the 
sash factory whom he would kill. He 
was laughed at and told t/iat he dared 
not do it. He told the persons present 
to go down theroadand they would see 
what be dared lo do. A man liien ar- 
rived from tlie scene of murder, and, af- 
ter a brief struggle, D v\-as secured and 
con ve ve.l to the Courtland county jail. 

Upon the discovery of the mur,Ier of 
Mrs. Kinney and daughter, sn.spicion 
was roused that Donongue was also the 
murderer of liis own daughter. Some 
of llie citizens repaired lo liis re.sidence, 
where they found his boy, and question- 
ed liiin regii rdi ng the wliereabouls ol bis 
sister. He said he dared not tell wliat 
fie knew, for fear his father would kill 
bini. The/ told him that his father was 
ill prison, and could not injure him, up- 
on wliicli tiieboyleil them to a bill, ami 
pointed out a large stone under wbicli 
he said be would find bis sister. They 
ruiseil tlie stone and found the girl. — 
She .was not dead, but had been confined 
luiiler the stone, with scarcely room to 
move a muscle, nearly two whole ilays 
and nights. Slie could scarcely .stand 
upon her feet when delivered from her 
place of (•oiifiiiemeiit, and stated that 
she bad thus been punisfied for a remark 
she made t bat displeaseil her father. — 
D..e\en alter be was lodged in jail, af- 
fected great soriow at the loss of Ills

on -Mr. Kinney. 

When liis daughter was brought in- 
to his presenr-e natural falbe^gavc 

way- to a so passion, and demanded 
that his hands should be untied that be 
might kill her. Our informaiit states 
that D. was a man of i-onsiderable edu- 
cation. but of terrible passions, and a 
Ivranl to bis family. He also says that 
all who are acquainted with him con- 
sider him as perfectly sane, though it is 
scarsely to be. credited tbit a man in bis 
right mind could be c;apable of perpetra- 
ting such diabolieal deeds.

From a speech made by Senator Jones 
when in Memphis, two weeks since, wc 
quote the follow ing: 

“But Gen. Scott has done more than 
indulge in mere declarations. Before 
the Couveulion assembled, the South- 
ern delegates met togetlier, excluding 
all Northern men from their councils; 
and (hey laid down a platform of prin- 
ciples and reported them to tfie Con veii- 
tioii, and which the Con vent ion adopted 
and passed. Has Oen. Scott eqiiivoca 
ted or dodged a direct acceptance of 
them? No, sir, he lias not! After the

journed 1 went to Wasliingteii. It was 
on Sunday; I went lo Gen. Scott’s, 
and 1 said to him. you have seen the res-

find the name of the Democratic nomi-

[them quoted in the Nashvillq Banner, 
and we refer the Indian Fighters of *the

On the 1044th page of the House Jour- 
nal, 1st session 24th Congress, June 18, 
1836, we find the following record: 

“-Yn engrossed bill, (No. 212) entit-

in the Indian hostilities of the West, 
subsequently to the revulutiuiiary war,

The telegrapli reports that the Pn^i-

It is also stated that there is no truth 
in the rumor of Mr. Webster's resigna- 
tion of his seat in the cabinet. 

A dispatch, from Washington, of the

The National Intelligencer notices the 
appointment of Mr. J. R. Ingersoll, Og 
Minister to Great Britian. and adds: — 
This seems to be a compliment not on- 
ly due to the ability and high character 
of Mr. Ingersoll, but also very justly 
due to Pennsylvania, as that Stale has at 
present no full mission, nor member of

it will be recollected, resigned bis place

of ill health.” 

Pierce Bolters. 

There is certainly a great deal of dis- 
satisfaction existing in the ranks of the 
Pierce party. We do not scarcely see a 
paper but that there are more or less 
bolters from the ranks. This is just the 
expected result. The democratic sup- 
port which GtMX. ticOTT will receive will 
be given on Mcouot of his vast superi- 
ority over ISe^.-Pi^bcx, as also the ve- 
ry valuable servi^s be has tendered to 
his country. The people of the West, 
particularly, are rising in their might 
for the hero of Cbepultepec, from the 
simple fact (hat they desire to see a chief 
Executive who will have an eye some- 
what to western interests. They know 
by sad experience that democratic hum- 
bugs and doctrines will not meet the ex- 
igencies of that portion of the United 
States which requires, and ought of 
right receive the fostering aid of the 
general governmeut. They are doctrines 
that have for a long lime deceived the 
unsuspecting and have been so effectu- 
ally tried, that the people are satisfied 
of (heir barrenness and a change — a hap- 
py change must inevitably follow. The 
fact is incontrovertible that there is not 
a settler in the entire West, whose dear- 
est interests are not opposed and preju- 
diced by the policy of the democratic 
party. There is not a business man — a 
farmer or mechanic in, the west whose 
prosjTects arc not blighted, and whose 
condition is not in every xvay injurious- 
ly'and ingeniously affected by the supre- 
macy o[,modern domocratic principles, 
which are calculated if left alone and 
encouraged io shut up every evenue to 
commercial prosperity. While on the o- 
ther hand the noble and very beneficial 
doctrine as advocated by the Whigs of 
•'protection and encouragement to home 
industry,” preaents itself and has the 
approbattiofi^pf ^ery, intelligent apd 
commvn atlaak'lllil^crrn man. This prin- 
ciple has and wlH ever stand unharmed 
by demagogues and the vile artifices of 
cracked brained politicians. Then why 
is it to be wondered at, that intelligent 
men in all quarters of the country are 
renouncing Gen. Pierce, together with 
his opposiliotr to Harbor and River im- 
provements — eonnteuaucing a religious 
test in the constitution of his natlvp 
State, when he has in his power to abol- 
ish it — and hia loathing notions of sla-

become a randidate^for Coageess in the

occasioned by the resignation of the 
Hon. Humphrey Marshall. We agree 
entirely with the writer in regard to the 
qualifications of Mr. Prentice to fill the 
station, and we think there is no man 
in the nation who deserves mure at the 
hands of the Whig party than Mr. P.; 
not only on account of the great and 
efficient services he has rendered to the

That Ne_w Boston Speech — Affida- 
vits. — We yt’sioi'liiy received the Man- 
chester (N. H.) Deinocral of the 12th 
inst.. the paper in wliich the principal 
report of Gen. Bierce’s New Boston 
speech origiiiHlly a p|»caied. The follow- 
ing paragraph, which clo,-es its le.iding 
e liioral article, implies thai respoii.~ible 
men of both panics in New Boston 
have te.siified under oalli that the report 
of Gen. P.'s speecdi was correct. We 
presume that the affidavits will soon 
come to hand. They are not by any' 
means needed, but they will be wel- 
conietr — Lou. Jour. 

When it was known that responsible 
men of both political parties in New 
Boston Iiatl under oath testified to the 
accuracy of our report, the attempt was 
made by several Elm street runners to 
induce the more respectable of the sign- 
ers of (he Hunker statement to give 
their affidavits as to the truth of that 
document. It was loo late. These men 
had got their eye.s open. They could 
through recklessness or carelessness put 
their names to a false statement — but 
they were not ready to perjure them- 
selves. No affidavits could be obtain- 
ed. Some of these persons will be slow 
to sign a Hunker document hereafter. — 
Meanwhile leaders in the Stale have tlie 
doleful task before them of satisfying 
Southern menMiat Gen. Fierce has not 
been guilty of duplicity on the slavery 
question. No one will grudge them 
the comfort of such au undertaking. 

Effect of General Pierce’ e s'ciness on his staff, 
and a striking contrast between a Brigadier 
General, and his Assistant Adjutant General, 
drawn by the Brigadier' s own hand. 

Con ti n u.i t ion of Cliapul lepec. — “The 
General commanding the division is a- 
warethat the arrangements of tlie morn- 
ing of the 13ih, ill consequence of my 
illness, necessarily put my staff out of 
position, there being no brigade com- 
mander. Under these circumstances, 
iny Chief of Staff, Capt. O. F. Winsliip, 
Assistant A Iju'ant General, although 
his own health then, and for several pre- 
ceding days, scarcely warranted him in 
leaving his bed, remained upon the field 
during the entire conflict.”-Gen Pierce’s 
official report. Executive documents. 
No 1, appendix, p p. 197, 198. 

Such is Gen. Pierce’s own report of 
his morveilous feats inthe Valley of Mex- 
ico. We have given the record, from 
Perote, up to the surrender of the city, 
ill General Pierce’s offiicial language. 
His admirers ranst not be angry with us; 
let them rather be road at General Pierce 
for writing such annals about himself, 
or at President Polk for sending them to 

CC5“ There is so remarkable a similar- 
ity of opinions'between the Pierce and 
the British press in regard lo Gan. Scott 
and free trade, as to leave us in doubt 
which is most really Biilish at heart. 
Both hate Scott intensely. Both deny 
that Scott won the battle of Lundy's 
Lane. Both contend on the other hand 
that he and the American army were de- 
feated. Both are decidedly in favor of 
tbe Polk free trade policy of 1846. Both 
think that England should do our man- 
ufacturing for us. Both think Gen 
P)arce ought to be elected President in 
preference to Gen. Scott. Are not these 
remarkable coincidences? 

(X^ The Kentucky Conference of the 
M. E. Church South will commence its 
sessions in this place on the 22d sept, 
next. We understand (hat there will 
be a large number of ministers of that 
church if attendance — probably 120. 
We hope that all of our citizens will 
open their hearts and houses ^o enter- 
tain them as it will be impossible for 
the members of tbe M. E. Church to do 
so, without aid from others let all who 
can, take one or more. 

We see that the Whig Central Com- 
mittee of the State have nominated the 
Hon. T. F. Marshall of Woodford a can- 
didate for Elector in the 8 (b congress- 
ional district in tbe place of the Hon. 
Garret Davis resigned. 

This is an excellent appointraent,and 
we doubt not will give general satisfac- 

We clip the following notice of Mr. 
Marshall’s appointment from the Com- 
monwealth, as expressive of x ur views 
of Mr. Marshall’s|ubiiities: 

. This is an excellent appointment. — 
Mr. Marshall is the first living orator of 
Kentucky. His splendid abilities will 
secure him immense crowds at every ap- 
pointment, and give him a decisive tri- 
umph on every field of debate in which 
a Democra' may meet him. His heart 
is in the contest, and lie has already en- 
tered upon his work with only less zeal 
than talents. He addressed the Frank- 
fort Chippevrs Club on Bslnrday night, 
in a mpst eloquent speech of two hours 
in length, which excited the highest en- 
thusiasm and admiration among all the 
Whigs who beard it. To-day (Monday) 
be mee.ts the Democratic Elector^ Mr. 
Johnson, in debate at hie appointment 
in Owenton. 

Mr. Marshall wilt address the people 
at the Estill Spring# to-day, and we hope 
it may suit bis coprenience to address 
the citizens of Madison in Richmond 
some day on hia return from Estill. Mr. 
M. has a warm place in the hearts of 
the people of old Madison. We promise 
him a crowd, if we have two days no- 
tice. , .

Outrageous Attack upon a Southern- 
er — A Mob — Hundreds of Southerntrt 
Leaving . — This usually quiet villago 
was this morning full of excitement, oc- 
casioned by an attack of waiters upon 
the person of E. M. Yerger, E.sq., » 
young planter from the South. The cif 
ciimslances are as follows: On Sunday at 
dinner, Mr. Yerger was helping some la- 
dy friend to a disli, when a waiter nl- 
tempted to take it from his hands. H* 
very promptly and properly raised tlic 
case-kiiite, which he held, and struct 
the waiter’s face. The waiter was iS" 
kfn from the room, and dinner went oa 
as usual. The next morning, Mr. Mer- 
ger went to breakfast, and being sealed- 
discovered a iiiovemeiii among the wait- 
ers, and, having armed himself in aiili 
ciputioii of an attack, he prepared fof 
self detence. He held a pistol in e‘*cd* 
hand, and as the mob advanced he told 
them that he would kill the first 
who cumo within five ftel. By 
threat 1 believe his life was saved, fof 
none of them dared to overstep the mart' 

The cry of “Sttulhrons” was 
Riely made, whereupon Col. Christy, ci* 
Kentucky, Lieut. Nelson, of tite navy- 
Mr. Pollard, of Alabama, and inanyoit' 
er friends of Mr. Y. came to the rescue- 
The mob was kept at bay bv Yergcf* 
pistols until he was surrounclod by 
friends; he was then deprived ef tb’^ 
of his a rms, and tlie mob closed 
him. A pistol was wrenched from bi' 
hand, the guard tearing his fiti 6 ®‘ 
severely. Tht? waller, who got possesf 

The Washington U nion notices 
with exultation the letter of the Hon. 
B. F. Butler of New York, in which 
he declares, that, although he repudi- 
ates the Democratic platform, he goes 
for Pierce and King. The Union is ex- 
ceedingly happy in the knowledge that 
the Freesoilers are -for Pierce, and as- 
sures them, (hat, in the event of his 
election by their aid, no distinction 
w hatex er shall be made between them 
and the rest of the Democracy.

there, whatever might be the merits of 
the house in other respects. It is a new

large body of waiters undertake to mob 
a guest at breakfast, -wliom they were 
employed to serve. We wonder if they

T his article is the result of the application 
of scientific principles to the purpose in- 
tended, viz: To keep water as cool as possible, 
as long as possible, with the least possible quan- 
tity of Ice. 

The proprietor has long devoted liis attention 
to this particular Lrancli of domestic economy, 
and pa.‘sing from one improvement to another, 
has at length .arrived as near perfection as it is 
possible to reach. A proof of this is found in 
the vtrv general use of these Coolers in all 
parts cf the country. better proof of the 
same far-t is, tliat, since their introduction, va- 
rious imitations of the eenuine article liave 
been attempted — all falling short of the object, 
it is true, yet all proving clearly which way the 
tide of po|iiilai upiiiiuii is setting. 

A simple statement of facts, in 
Coolers, will satisfy everyone of their superior- 
ity. First, they are the only article of the kind 
ererjialeute/i. They are furnished with two 
distinct non-conducting chambers, by means 
of which, with two pounds of Ice to the gallon, 
water is kept (at a temperature of 40" below 
zero, or only 8» above thy freezing pointy all 
day. Thus, at a cost of .some five cents per day.

universally liked as potatoes, and at the

an unknown food, except to a few per-

mean a sort of coarse meal, but grains of 
white corn, from which the hull and 
chit oreve has been removed, by mois- 
tening and pounding in a wooden mor- 
tar, leaving the grains almost whole, and 
composed of little else but starch. It

seen its effects. Some few weeks since,

there was a lack of lime in the_henery, 
and -we took -a peck of corn and xvet it 

ASotoughly,' been soaked it 

would proabljTs have been better,) and 
stirjied in plaster (ground) as long as it 
xvould adhere, and placed this mess be- 
fore them. Before the corn was consu- 
lieJ we began to have plenty of eggs, 
the laying' season is now going on in
