About a week ago the canal boat ' Robart and Willian, from Jersey City, pass! through this city on its way to liunaio. it was towed by the tug Christie, ' 1 and at Lockiort the latter gave out so that horse power had to be used. A man ncraed Connors was engaged to tow the boat passed Ton-awacda creek and he did so, putting his bug gy on the boat so that when he wanted to return be would have the wherewith to ride on. At Pendleton his contract ended, and there a dispute arose between WUliara Tuliock, the captain and Connors, in which it is said re volvers wore used and many blows passed. At any rate, the boat was loaded with wheat. and culled by the tue Christie, which had been repaired, commenced an eastward journey. In the meantime Connors claimed that Tuiloch and bis crew had stolen a harness from hi in worth twenty -four dollars. A warrant was sworn out iu Niagara county and placed in the bantls of Constable Patrick Barry. He boarded the boat at Lockpcrt, bat could not find the captain, so yesterday he aui Connors rarce down ou the second Atlantic express to this city. Pacing Spencerport, they claim they saw the t oat and the captain ou ft.

The parties showed figbt, and were it not for the presence of the Rchestfr officers Constable Barry and his friend would hare hid a hard time of it. In fact, Mrs. Dalton, the sister-in-law of Tullccn, the captain, who is from Meriden, Conn. , anil only travelling on the boat for pleasure, told our reporter that ft she had had a revolver, Barry and Connors would have a reception of cold blood- Kb ays Tot loch is a Luan cf means in Jery City, aud will make the parties who stopped his boat suffer for it.

Yeh-terday afternoon at 3 :'Q o'c!o:k iuter-estitig and impressive services were conducted at the First Universalis church, under the auapuesof Florallodge, number i81, I O.O. F. The infant son of Edwin and Mary Batter-on, deceased, was the center of interest on the occasion. The object of the services was the christening of the child by Floral lodge, its godfather, the little one having been recognised as the special protege of the lodge, a-dae from the relations of parents go reated in its adoption into the family of Theodore Batter- 1 rou, cousin of the deceased Edwin. The circumstance clustering around the history of the case are in many n specie peculiarly romantic. A very fair idea of the nature of thoee circuuifctance is given in the latter psr& of the following report of the services yesterday afternoon : Rev. Asa Haxe, I). D. , pastor of the chnroh, read from the scriptures the paware, 4 ltSu?Tr little children to come unto me, ' ' et3. , the choir sang a grand U tlmmt the composition of the organiit, Professor J. H. Kaibneich. An earnest, eloquent and sympathetic prayer fn.ui Kev. Dr. 8axe followed, and a batisaial addrrsh frv.m the same leern.-d divine was next in order. l"he choir, consisting of Sirs. 8. S. Brewer, Miss Hattio Banhnm, and Messrs. James Monroe and D. A. Bump, sang a new translation of Nearer, my Goi, ' 1 from Hulden. Then the doctorsaid it wits with great pleasure that he welcomed to bis church the brethren of the order of Odd Fellows, and he felt to congratulate them upoa the bene'lent ai d worthy mission which brcugut thsm trere. it must te an impuLe of unsotiUliuess that prompUd their action, a&l the a-tion muwt be in accord finoe with the broad an 1 neble prirciplc of their order, when they came to bland as godfathers to a fatherless end motherless child. The blessing growing out of such a worthy act would, h was sure, be a benediction upon them all. The service in which they bad com a to-ther to unit would be a recognition of the importance of a singl bu man soul, new born though it were. Brought to them as the child was by the providence of God, it was incumbent upm them to throw around it all the tie of brotherly luv, thus adding a new fiber to the Christian brother hood ultimately to bless the world. Jeu had set the example of taling litt'e children in his arm and blessing tiiem. The otj of tbe present serricei was to emulate tht ex-eniple to bestow a benediction upon the child. TbfV should remember also that they were naming an immortal soul. Ha trusted that th is service would not be without i ts effect upon th chili they were about to rhripten. As an outgrowth of th?e services it was earnestly to be desired that tae chili's parents by adoption would feel a nuw wanctity added to the parental o ligations. While it afTorded him joy. it was with a feeling of so lemnity that be welcomed the members of the orrer to take part in th spervi" for which they had met. At tbe conclusion of thee remarks by IV. Saxe the congregation, led by the choir, sang Pleyels Hymn, 1 in words appropriate to the occasion. The child was then brought forward, and Ir. Baxe in aimiui5tering t it th ordinance of baptif m said : i Kdwin Floral, I baptls you in the nam of th living God, 1 ' and audid a U'Eediction. Grand !presezitative Jihn W. Btebbins tLen arose to speak in behalf of Floral lodg and the order. He said that thi scene, so far as tbe beautiful and impremiv cereraonry it-self was cinrerned, was but an oit rwf seated one in Odd Fellowship. Thousands .of children bad btx-n chriKtened by th or ier, but iu all the iutotaucea other than this, with perhaps a wngl-c exception, a mother or father had pretentd th liul on to ! namd aiul tiiesMd. P-ut this infant son of th onier by eduptioa hal no father, no mother to bring b:m Prward fir a Lain and bennlx-tior. Bvubtleaa tbere were those prent who won Id feel imprevwM with a solemnity attached to this tad arid exnrptional cae.

Iant spring, about sera month i' fro, and a y ear aitr their mar -liege, their little ana vt born, Very soon biterwards, Theodore K.

Htrangely en-wigh, by acme mtuiuoc, Mrs. Batta-sx-n at oniw agreed ith tbe coum from Ko'b-atr, and said ah would sweiit to tli proposition if Kdwla wer greeable to it. But litt'e more was said or thought alnr-tit the matter at the time, but jurt before Theodore's departure Edwin said to bim, Wait a minute ; my wife wants to ae yon and bid you x-d-bya.

Edwin' death soon followed, and Theodore Ratteraon ex ecu ted the dy ing w iiih of the orphan s mother. He brought th Uttle one In his arms to Rochester. At iirat there war maov on tbe train curious to know why no mother nor nurs accompanied anil cared for th infant. But as tli people learned the outline of th child's history the idle curiosity of th travel-. ers waa changed to generous attention. At hia lodge Mr. Batterson recounted all that bad transpired during bis absence. Imbued ith tbe generous sympathy which such a his tory might be expected to awaken, the lodge uiianimouRly adopted th following resolu tions, eetabJiHhing the permanent relations whk-h are now cemented between it and th child ' THE BAKER CASE.

AT TMlTY CHURCH. The rector of Trinity church, the Rev. W. W. Welch preached yesterday morning a sermon on The Reading of the Day, 1 taking for his text the twelfth verse of the tenth chapter of Kccleaiastos And further, by thcee, my sou, be admonished : of making of many looks there is no end ; and much study is a weariness of th flesh. ' The preacher began his discourse by allud ing to the prof Able limited amount of knowl-rdp,e existing at the ti:ne when the words of the test were written. The books were great nls of manuscript, and the Huhjects treated were, we may lielieve, of a legendary or relit; -ious nature. Tbe only remains of the writing of that very ancient day are fonnd in our FiMe. It was f00 year3 ieiore borrab or Plato gathered their schools about them and taught their strange philosophy, or Herodotus penned the graphic lines of bj$ history, or the blind Iard of Nao s rocky isle ' ' sang tbe Trojans' downfall. It was a time when large libraries were not so prevalent as now, and when authors and critics vtb not found among the occupations of the diy. We hear only of the prophets of the Most High at cer tain seasons coming forth rrom their seclusion to startle tbe dull ears of tli Jews with their wondrous predictions and their woeful warnings. Beyond thee records we have not a leaf, not a syllable. And yet the writer of th txt says that even in his day, Of th making of many books there was no end, and much study was a weariness of th flesh. ' 1 If, then, ' th rpeuker continued, 4 there was a surfeit of took -mak ing in those early days, and ii reading hed becoino a weariness, what ar w to fay of the position of the student of to-day f Unlike the condition of things in olden time. cur boobs are not made of beards or the inner bark of trees ; tbey are not mada of skins or parchment. The leave are ho longer leave of vellum nor every letter made by hand. It does not cost, as once it did, 000 guineas to luv a Bible: or a large estate to secure a scientific treatise, or 00 sheep and five quar fers of w heat to get a copy of a sermon. The times have cltarsd. There is no borne now fo destitute that the daily print is not a fre iutnt visitor. There is no man so jioor that his children ray not have bocks and an education. There is no clime on this vast gM, save the unex plored wilds of Central Africa, where the printing pre has not sent its abaft of light, and served in a measure to uplift and encour- are. A return d vovager tell us that he found copies of one of our American ill us - rmted weeklies In the frozen waste of inner Hib-ria. Far uto the tu itiing region of tbe I'.otky mountains, where there is no regular mat;, and the meti are of tbe roughest mould, you will find niany of th periodicals of the day.

A few years ago I eaux Coll ge wa nearly det.troyrd by fire, aa the result of one of tbe hoys attempting toemnlste tht hero of ou of be books which he bail mt fluUhe! reading Not kmg frince a young lad In New Jerwy ran aw&y from bis home and waa found out among the Indinns of tlie for west. His mind had becom so thoroughly saturated with In dian scalping ecenee and wild rutlianinm by reading the Lowest tyje of dime novels, that he concluded but up here in lu waa to outdo all tli rutliauiMm that bad ever been beard of, There are extreme rates, but as fucin tbey arrert attention. Novel reading has become the bane of our social Ufa. 1 am not one of thoee who would say that works ot Action ar in themselves a curne to th community. Like all good thing, they mak us to suffer froin tbe abuse of them. Perhaps no book in the world, except the Bible, ba been transit ted into so many language aa Uncle Tom (abin, " and that too because it ia on of those books which ban made the world the bol ter. W can't hav too many such books I But sine that book appeared, w hav ooeu flooded with trasb of th worse kind. Our book shelve groan under load of fiction, and young and oil fol low tb h tutor ie of phantoms with an in tensity ana eagerness that reality scarcely commands, w mutit remember that In a well written ktory we are brought Into contact with charac ters whoa views, thoughts, feeling aud expe riences ar for th time being aa real to us as life lUelf. Tbey rouse our u nihilities and draw ns down with them into evil, or lift into a higher sphere for good. And henc tb dreadful literature that is poisoning tb bvs and girls ot tbe country, turning tbe boys into thieves and the girls into vagaBonds, is cor rupt ing because it brings th young reader iuto the company of corrupt characters. Tb boy who reads thM imaginative histo ries of thieves, counterfeiters, highwaymen box lot and pirate, ha tb same effect pro duced upon hia miud that would be proouoed by actual association with the uving persons. This Is as true as th truth itoelf. There is no mytery about it. 4 Kril cMuuiuuications corrupt good manners Young men nnd young women who lit up till nndniKbt to read stories of most rapid santi nteeit fail of course io comprehending the letat of life' realities, and when tltey com to batUe with iu trials they fall bock dijeouraged. No more than we can gather grapes of thorns or figs of thistles can we draw from the mind, corrupted and diseased by sen&ele reading, the elements upon which to frame a noble character. If our children read whatever they lay hands on their minds will become whatever they may happen to become. Here then is our position and our duty. Tbe rising generation is a reading generation. It becomes the church, therefore, to teach her people to m-couratjr the love of reading, and at the same time tlireri the young mind into tb channels which shall be of pro lit and usefulness. It is the duty of the church to warn against th indiscriminate manner with which so many take up tbe literature of the day. It is a true saying, we never can forget the eli'eots of reading even onr immoral book. Its impress on tbe mind is indelible, It is like a sword cut on the hand. By careful treatment the wound heals, the weakened member recovers Ua wonted strength, but there is the scar to tell the danger which has been overpast. We cannot efface that. Give tbe mind of the young child a bias for tbe good at the stirt. See to it that the vile, cheap story telling periodicals of the day are kept out of his reach. Give him the dear, bright, beautiful, ennobling writings of Christian men. Let him grow up familiar with history as well a fiction. Giva bim looks and magazines which elevate ami enoMe and he will soon learn that a volume of Waverley is more en tertaining than tbe last novel of the Beadlo kind, and Irving or Motley or Prescott mire (Tatifyirg to tbe teste than the last issue of the New York Weekly or the Sunday Mer cury. It i time for the church to utter her protect against tbe materialism of our day which sets aside the law of God for the grati fication of man's lowerfriature, whrch regards man a mere macniue to wate and wear out, in the pursuit of vanities and pleasure, in stead of a creature made in the image of God and an heir of irumortality. ' ht. Paul's cuurch. Yesterday the rector of Bt. I aul's Episcopal church, Rot. Israel Foote, I). D. , ex changed pulpit with the rector of the church at ortb Adams, Mass. , and hence the congregation were permitted to listen to two ser mons by Rev. W. Montague Geer. Last evening the church was well tilled, and th service was of great interest. Evening prayer was conducted by Mr. Geer, aided by th regular assistant of the church. The singing of the boy choir wa very good and added much to th solemn impressiveness of tiie service. The subject treated of by th reverend gentleman in his discourse was that of tbe immortality of the soul. It waa han dled in a manner calculated to impress the and if nee ard leave upon their mind the most pleasing thoughts regarding this very import ant them. The text choseu wa the twenty sixth vere of the seventy-third pmltn, which reads as follows : My heart and my strength faileth, but God b the strength of my heart and my portion forever. " If it was given to the angels, tbe ft fipeaker said, to know those thingu of which we were ignorant ; if it was permit ted them to walk in the full glory of perfect bght, while w groped in darkness ; to pierce the veil of myntery and see and understand those things which were to us strange, per plexicg and inexpiicabi ; then with what sen tiinent of pity must they look down upon th race to w hich they wer sent to minister. We had been allowed centuries in which to pursue our investigations upon all manner of eubjerU ; science had received tborou, searching all through its wide domain, the sermons of tbe rock bad been sta bed an 1, ai'ied by wonderful appliance and inventions cf great mechanic tdtii!, the great school of nature had pursued it course, and yet in vy it of all that had liecn learned w were as 1 -4 net of one mind on on of th moat lm lortant problems brought before our noticafor eclutlon th destiny of th human soul. At the flr.t blu b it would appear that there could pottibly be but two opinions regarding the sul.jeet el titer th soul was immortal or it waa not ; whether the speaker and bis hear- ers would live thrigb eternity, know them rives sud each other, and tw enabled to Be their bole live in review before tbem, both before and after death, or aleep, and thus end It would seem that mau must live after ath or eijae that the closing of tbe eye upon eerth waa tbe cluairg of all existence ; that tb nan entered a grave from which ther OKild be no revurre-tiou ; that life was like a candle and death was but blowing out t e flame: or lik the flower, ojiening for a day aid dying at sunset, never again to form pr.rt of th universe of God. But no, th of the nutation of immortality not reduevd to ucb simple term a. At oon aa men rfrln to duvuss it, all th hrancbe of science and philosophy ar brought into piay ad qmltnllng and hair riilming sjoe on uutd th ordinary mind rnmpeltod either to give up the whole snbjart or accept tbe dortrine and Idea aa advanced by u church. IHwnswton could not solve the problem or settle tbe difficulty. Many writers outfits of the chnrch bad written utoq tbe subject, btmI many of them advocated a ob tain kind of immortality, and hence we hear of grace and prayer when it M stated th tt ther wa no God save a fiod identical with nature. Thus was th old languag kept up to convey a sentiment, but no Mitatanc. W e Uiight wll pray that this rev at ion of the Ui g'iftfC of truth mtgbt la tfme draw bho lck to the rciigioo of their fathers. We tiiul among tb materialiats of a certain sciot 4 a certain idea of ku mortality w bK-a was inUrertlug to exatuiue. Fur itutaixw, there was Mm immortality of matter. It could change its form but never became annihilated Then there was the immortality of force whii-h could abo be trait formed but never annhUlated. Tlie f- bfcrh created man could end hi existence again and be would b revolved iuto uchor e!e-nwCtt, but matter and fortw could nt be destroyed and would remain through all eternity. ( nbera declared the idea of th immortality of tb human race. We, as individuals, would never rtf from th grave, bi t tae race would be perpetuated, for a our ancestors lived In ua ao we ahoald live in otbars. Others claimed an imrDOt Wlity of tbougbt, of moral fore and duty, U Others oltuued that th same bigot b tranformed, th condition of it existence be changed but not destroyed. ,Th tteakt read from a noted KogluUi writer ex- tracts relating to the ideas of i'antheuim etc. , and then continued.) W saw two principles In life, standing tn deadly opposition to e tch other on looked to perfection and Ui other drapgtd men down. They war like the iieavl end tbe sea of Galilee, like th deaert and rich fertile fields, like sweetnedaud fragrance and beauty ooutra.ted with repubnv and brrihl tbinga. One led man np to th altar aijd fitted bim for his deftinvfleyond the akii and th other led him downward until his feet took hold on belt. In this Ute good so often drove v il to th wall that th speaker helived in rids matter, also, the good would prevail on th principal of tn survival of tu futet.

Bine life waa so short there was a tendency to ask 1 What matters it how we pass our days! How can God ba moved by the actions of such irrfnitessimal beings in the universe aa we ? Why not make the best of these short lives!" But man should look op and remember that with the Lord a day was as a thousand years, and time waa incomparable with the smallest fraction of the eternity towara wnica all were journeying so rapidly. By him who read sermons in the stone and books tn the running brooks, the importance attaching to every act of life might be read on every page. In ds life, brief aa it might be, was given to men's souls the impetus that would carry them one way or the other through all eternity. All should remember that the life- work for this world and in preparation for the next, ended with this world.

The Democrat and CStronlele Read by Everybody from tbe Atlantic to tti Pacltic and from tbe Lake toCahe Feme time ago we published a short account of a private collection of American silver coins mada by John H. lie Call, of this city. hiie the article was written with the best and honest intention toward Mr. McCall it Kens it bd caused im an immense amount of trouble, and now when he Sfe a Imocrat and Chronicle reporter around he wishes that parrott guns could be carried in ve&t pockets. Tbe reason of this feeling is that ever bince the article in question was written, Mr. McCall has been in receipt of three or four letters a day on tbe average about this coin question that the Democrat end Chronicle agitated. Some folks want to tell him rare piece, others want to buy, more want to obtain information about coinage, and thus it goen. The gentleman in question says that be will have to go without an ulster this winter, for he has expended his surplus money in postage stamps, and he ha serious thoughts of commencing an action against ooe of our reporters for the value thereof. 1 o tcJ tbe truth we are a litue bothered our selves about this 4 1 coin article, 1 for letters are reining into tbe of I ice every day or two re gartiing it, which goes to show that the Demo crat and Chronicle is read by the public everywhere, and henc its worth an an ad ver ti"icg medium cannot be excelled. 1 he following letter come from th Pacitia slope and we publish it with pleasure : I ax Faycisco. r)8 i!nsh street, t Uovember Id, 1",9. f Jo thr rdttar of the Democrat and Chronicle : H;a: You mblished a very inter'-stinc article which ha t-n reprinted in the Uniieun.of this cirv.aho':t th coin collection of Mr, McCall. i u --d to be a journal Ur I have relied upon the s-H'ial eotirby of our prof eqpiion an mifnc4iit authority r- r irouDunR you upon iue minject. i amuse my ptfvca leisure tjj collecting Anu ncan silver coin, and I fhtd that you ouote iViias a rare half-dollar. 1 hare not rome to thai date, for I am working liom the earnest to ir.e iat-ar.aca nae oniy ar- rivrd at lMO.

For th information of the writer we would say that Mr. McCall has made his collection of coins solely for hia own pleasure, and he has no re to sell. There was a mistake in our original article regarding the dat of on piecethe half-dollar of 1 -; it should have read 1653, th latter being rare and th other not. We believ that one of the beat authorities on coin collections is Bcott'f Journal, t monthly published in New York, and by ai drewung th publiahors thereof the lated( quotation on rare coins can be acertAinedL Another letter came to as yesterday, which w subjoin : To f He &'.ittwofth fV.MVT(it and CrvntW- A., ..
