Our little man was standin&ln oompany with b couple of gentlemen, in the door of one .of the itorea on the street leading to tho ferry, wnen tne brave man came along and grossly assaulted the little one. Nothing daunted, little one sailed In at a square stand-up encounter. After two or tires passes, the claret flew from the burly one, and he started and ran, but was soon brought to i time by being overtaken and compelled to face tie music Tho result was, that he begged for 'i-arters by flinging out lustily, take him off. He Sad but one friend in the numerons crowd, who csme to Mb rescue, and he is worth? of him. for tiey are well matched.

BiTrLB Cezex, Oot. 5. The aunlvoreary of the Hisaioiory Society was held on Baturday evening. Bev. N.Abbott began the regular exercises by some brief but pertlsest and very happy remarks on the importance of themissonary cause, and urged especially upon his hearers that the sork must be prosecuted vigorously, the ohucb must b3 aggressive, it must meet the enemy on his own grounds, never must it be driven from foreign fields to its own shores, there to orgs a defensive war. Or. Harris, Aasistsut SJcrotaxy cf the Mission' aryBaard, stated that the church has at ;thla time foreign missions tn China, South America, Boan- dlnavia, Bulgaria, Indie, ana Germany, never has there been a period in the history of man when missionary labors have been snore fruitful A latter received recently from Bouth America, whloh has always been a BeJf.Bustalning mission, states that the calls of the people from tho inter! or are urgent for more laborers. Tho people axe not only anxious to have, but are willing to pay, for the preaohlngof the gospel. India has contributed upwards of $16,000 on conditions that a Ilka aura be appropriated hero, and that more missionaries be sent out This explains why more help has been there re. cently. PresEPB have been sent to China and bocks arc to be printed In the language of the common people, which differs from the court language. The manner of appropriating the funds raised for missionary purposes was explained. As many distrlota are formed as there are bishope, from eaoh ono of these one man is ohssenand these form the committee whloh decides what amount 1b ne- cosa:ry and where It shall be applied, the amount (inalterable, the places of dlstriSutlon stTjeot to the concurrence of the Missionary Board. This committee at its last meeting deolded that $3C5, 4G0, an Increase of $23,400 over toat of last year, should be raised. They had reasoned that no backward step shall be taken,' and that to main tain a firm foothold and make an advance required a larger amount. This chnroh generally had sustained this view. The Board had set out on the year with a good heart Owing to canaea wh'oh aro patent to every one, there had been a falling off in the receipts from the Baltimore, East Baltimore, and portions of the Philadelphia and New York Conferences, whloh, combined with the increased appropriations, leaves a deficiency of $10,000. How must this c efloiency be met? Up to the present time increased special contributions have materially aided In making it good. A second source of aid is the increased contributions received from the West. A third sourojls the appropriations whloh have been placed to the credit of the various Conferences, and have been given np by tho respective Confer-enceaj. In this way $13,000 have been realized. Honey whloh hsc been in the preachers' own power to use for their own personal relief has been generously given up. It is an Instructive fact and one which should stir the ohnroh to Its foundations. Of this $13,000 the Datroit Confer-ence has contributed $2,100, and the Michigan Confirenoe $1,900. As on illustration of the growth of domestic missions the speaker cited that of the western States. Thirty years ego ono Conference embraced the Btates of Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Iowa and Wisconsin, extending to Lawresceburg on the south, Galena on the Mississippi and west indefinitely. This vjst area was traversed by less than one hnndred ministers. To-doy there are twenty Conferences, 2,131 pastors, 3,000 local preachers, 278,860 members, and church property to thesm-nnt of $4,141,000. -'f After the singing ol the Missionary Hymn, Eav. Wa Taylor, of CsllfomlB, was introdnced and made a abort address. He said that even in this country many people thought it an easy matter and ell right that the minister and his family should exemplify piety in their conversation and actions, but that it Is quite a different thing for a man immersed In business to spend his time at prayer meetings, and aot eooordlsg to the principles of religion. This Is precisely the argument ot the heathen In foreign nations. A Christian minister oomea among them, and they are contented to believe that bis religion will do for him, bnt that after all their own Is mnoh bat ter for them. People oi foreign nations are prone to think themselves the best of all on earth, and that other nations ore barbarians. This Is especially true of the Chinese; but when the Chi' natnan comes to this country he soon lays aside wooden shoes and fantastic dress, and adapts him' self to English customs; and, if he la converted and educated, he la just the man to beoome a missionary among bis own countrymen. Califor nia contains a large population of Chinese, and In view of the above facta is ons cf the most Im portant fields tor missionary labor. The importance of obildren as missionaries to convert men at home was nrged; they have a naturalness, a directness ot appeal, that older persons do not pouesa. It ia not the muscular man that can manage the terrible beasts, but the Bible Bays, " A little child shall lead them." It Is net the Doctors of Divinity cr the dignlta' ries of tho church that most easily persuade men Into the heavenly wBy, but the simplicity end earnestness of children. Don't dUcourege them by telling them they can do nothing In the great work ot evangelizing the world. Give their little hands something to do, and you will find that they are among themnat Efficient missionaries for Christianity. After the exercises the follo-ing were elected officers of the Conference Missionary Board for the ensuing year: President D. Burn p. Vac Pmidt'tH. W. Johnson. Secretary J. W. HoblDiOn. ZWmurn L. B. Edmonds. BcKDiT Moaning, Oct 6. The church was filled to overflowing, on But-day morning, by those anxious to listen to the discourse by Bishop Ames. The text taken was: John, xxi. Si. iai then ire also muy othsr things vh ch Jesnx did, tbe which, if tbey shoa:d bo written, erery one, I euppose, that ereu tbe wcrld itcftlf could not contain the books that should b written. The speaker said, in introducing the subject that there Is a large olaaa who, like Thomas, are Blow to believe. It had been the greatest plague of his own religious life, this went of faith. On the principle that ministers Generally Bpeak oftenest and most warmly on BarJcta that they are most deficient, ho had obosen for the subject of bis dis course one which might not interest the members of tbe Conferenoa, or those of the audience more advanced in years. Many effict to look down oontemplnoutlyupon the followers of the Bible, as though they might obtain tome higher elevation upon which to pin their faith. Tbelr prcatloes are tnt the modern stamp of the old form of infidelity, of which mention is made where It spojka cf wizards who peep and mutter. He had met one of these persons, who had reprosoh6d hla for clinging to the gospel when a newer revelation had been made. He said to bin that tbe first lesson that his Puritan mother taught him, as he sat upon her knee, was to revere the Bible. Ia that votom9 he road of one who carried his delusion to bell, end there, while euffarlng the punishment of his it JI necked obstinaoy, he lifted np bis eyes, tad asserted that God had not dona enough to save him, pertinaciously obstinate be besought him to eend one from the dead to earth, that they might believe, bat God Bsjd they have Hoses and the prophets end, u they hearken notto them neither will they believe, though one ries from the dead. The Bi. ble, the speaker said, sua anfflcieat far him. If tho dead oould he called back there was no need of: their presence; they fulfill ed their mission while on earth. . A curious fact, Illustrating tho foresight of God, in meeting the doubts of any in reference to th e truth of His word is, that twenty-seven works have been penned by fifteen persona, eight oi -whom have written different accounts, all of which perfootly harmoniss. Oonld it have beea possible for tho same number of false witnesses to so perfectly agree In ell the little details ol their etory? Again, tbe story Is simply told, there is no. attempt at ornamentation, at dressing up the narrative. "Thus .eatth the Lord,1' say the prophets. Still more atrongly, If possible, ia the. .Impresa of truth stamped on the writings of the Apostles, for they narrate their own follies and little mean. ceases, their contentions aa to who should be the greatest' their petty strifes. No such thing oould be found tn & hero's delineation in fiction. In no works, beside the Bible,' can be found that simplicity of statement that eo bcara upon Its face the mark of truthfulness. : . Voltaire said ha was tired of bearing that twelve illiterate fishermen had established a relf gion that should rule tho world. It ahonld be .eeen how a French philosopher mignt ovennrow l Tet these same illiterate, down-trodden nan ermenhave furnished tha only perfect specimen of humanity ever given to the world. Is there anything like this in all the range of literature? Have even the most highly oalUvateQ ana oru llant authors, In all their attempts, ever auoeeed- ei in producing a hero who never ottered a foolish thing or did a wicked deed? In the New Tor taaent yon find one who never was swayed by human passions, who spoke as never mas spake. and who ia all bis career, waa blameless, without spot or blemish. That so perfeot a ch;raoter was draws, can only be accounted for by the reason that the specimen was before their eyes, and that they but noted every-doy events as they occurred. It is very rarely the esse that two or three oc temporaries write the history of a mas or state, Ofteser is it reserved for oome one. who lived after the facts of which he writes have ocenrref . Their data is made np of Btate documents, of state' menta that bava been warped and twisted by par' tlsas pre judlce; asd when these fall the historian launches out into probabilities, and, these falling him, he sails boldly into the immense sea of con" jeoture, and there fishes up material to be wrought into the wJb or his work. But, In the case of tbe Saviour, we have the written testimony of these who were contemporaneous with the events nar rated. It la the beat evidence, for it is tbe writ ten reoord of the transactions. Physicians tell ns that tho substance of the body are' continually changing, and that the ma terial ot whloh we shall a few years hence be com posed la now Casting in the air, swimming in the sea, growing In tbe ground. Tet our identity Is never lost Oo with the Churob; lta identity Is the same yesterday, to day and forever; although twenty centuries remained from Calvary, jet we stand on the earne foundation, from the tame platform we let down tho came pitcher Into tho game well, we have the same inheritance, and here in the saored writ we have, are our title deeds, with God's own signet etamped tn miraclea upon them The Bible contains sufficient in itself to show lta authority. It Is & bard thing to make up a false history. The speaker gave several familiar Illustrations of this, end went on to say that, 1' one believes the Bible to be false, he must first believe that twelve lllilerato men have Invented a, false story with so much ebllity, posseeaing such consistency, that learned men, felling to discover any Saws, have believed it. How could belief in Christ ever have got a be ginning? By miracles. A miracle Is a suspension or alteration of a law of nature, something whloh appears directly to the senses. Can any one imagine how God could have authenticated the gift of His Son. except by miracle; 7 Away back in former ages may be found gigantic Intel' lects,who had worked out the problem of tbe great first cauae. They believed the Old Testament the book of nature, but In no other way tbon by miracles could tbe truib of revalation have been brought homo ti them; God, in giving the law to Moses amid tho thunderlnga of Blnal, seemed to Imply that Ha gave ns to understand that He who put together theso mountains, who fashioned these works, the Author of nature and the God of revelation, is one and the seme. Nioodemus said to Christ, thou art a teacher; how did he know it? Why, no one oould do the works he had done without God helping him. Pe ter said of him a mas approved by signs and won dera which God did through him. Christ did thcea mighty works in the presence of His enemies, He wrought miracles to convert sinners. God woried by theso.mlractes, for shall He come down from Hla high and holy place to argue with man? His deeds speak for him. A glorious thing ia life. O ften bad It filled bis soul while gazing up on the mighty forest stretching cntlts moss covered branches from tho trunk of a thousand years. One Is lest In gezlng npon the various wonders of vegetable and animal creation, and can but say what a. thing is life! Yet far more glorious above these rise the city of the everlast ing God, pinnacle upon plnnaole, Bpire surmounting spire. Its beautieB oome Hooding the soul with delight and It says, soul live forever, that ye might have life everlasting. This is tbe boon that the soul may have If It but have faith In God. The speaker alluded, in closing, to the hardships which must bo endured ilka good soldiers by tho mlnlstera of Christ and exhorted them to have faith to tbe end, " for these light sffllctiore, whloh ere hut for a moment shall work for them a far more exceeding asd eternal weight of glory." At the conclusion of the sermon tbe Bishop, as-slated by Bev. T. H. Slnrx and Rev. H. Peefield, ordained as Deacons the following: E. Marble, H. M. Joy, George D. Lee, James H. Dayton, Amos O. Wheeler, Jonathan A. Sprague, Uri Mason, Andrew B. Van Wyck, Gaorge A. 8herman, IraB. A. Wightman, and Joseph Jones. SUNDAT ArTIBNOOK, Oct. 6.
