It had become so ingrafted upon the re-, llgiout life as the W ord of God and as able to save son Is, tad every heart was so familiar with Its rug-gad but beautiful Haxon, tbat it might bo aald to be engraven even upon the lentila aad do. pom of our dwellings. Everything else had been suhlect to tho proceet of change. But let tb old text stand m our fathers read and loved It, and as passages from it were written upon their gravestones. To cbsnge It would prove a matter of infinite . hazard. Dr. Morgsa said, in conclusion, that a General Council of tbe Church would by and by pronounce npoa tb revision, and to tne decision of that body he wm willing to defer; bnt until tbe adoption of the new wa thns sanctioned he should cling to the old and hallowed version. Tbe Rev. Ir. Rylanoe, Rector of St Mark's Chorea, gave hit views oo'the revision of the New Testament In a lecture oa tbe varions source of evidence to which the revisers have had access and the rules that have governed' them In the changes Instituted. Be contended tbat such progress bad been made In criticism of the text of late years that .a revision wm essential to correctness. It-was error to style the work Just leaned a translation or aversion; It was simply a revision. In which tbe eminent scholar engaged had been guided solely by evidence tn the alteration, retention, or rejection of a passage. Tbe Rev. Dr. Penteooet preached oa "Th New Version" In the Maroy-A venue Baptist Church, Brooklyn, yesterday morning. Be took no text, Mying that tbe entire New Testament would be bis theme. He was unqualifiedly In favor of the new version, and wished to be put on record as advising Its immediate adoption. . Tbe making of this new version be regarded as the greatest event tbat ha happened in the religious world In 800 years. Tbe people, he Mid. must be careful not to confound thb new version with a new translation. It Is not a new translation, but simply a re-edtting of the old translation by men in every way competent to do the work. He illustrated the tenacity with which people cling to the old Bible by telling a story about an agent of a Bible society who wm trying to oollect money In a country ehurch for a new translation of tbe Bible. The agent asked an old farmer in tbe congregation to contribute. " What's the matter with the good old King Jame version r" tbe farmer replied. "That wm good enough for St Paul, and It' good enough for me." It wm something unparalleled, the speaker believed, for SOO.000 copies of the Testament to be sold tn New-York In a single day. "And I am told," be aald. "that the Bible wm actually sold In Wall-street yesterday !" - FRUITS AND VEGETABLES. DOLBTCIi REPORTS FBOM THE PEACH COUIt-TRT ITKaWBBRRIKS TO BE PLE3TTT. The cold and wet weather of loat week retarded the ripening of the strawberries, and consequently there wu no very great quantity of them ripe for market la Delaware and Maryland, although a small quantity ot them were received from there onj each day last week after Tuesday. Not only did the weather affect the Delaware and Maryland berries, but also tbe Virginia and North Carolina crop. But while the rains retarded the ripening of tbe strawberries, they insure- the, largest crop ever gathered south of tbe Dela ware, and while the berries which com here thla week from Norfolk may be la bad condition beoauM of tbe abundance of water in them, they will be large and at tractive-looking when shipped, and probably they will be In good condition, and certainly will be during tbe following week. But tboM which will come from Maryland and Delaware next week must be very fine. This will be tbe gnat week for Norfolk strawberries, and, doubtless, tbe steamer which brings tbe first picking of this week from there will bring to New-York upward of 6,000 crate of thla frnlt, and they will be sold for about 10 oents a Quart. It to aow generally thought by frnlt receivers that the peach crop of the Peninsula this season will be an absolute failure, and even those bay shore orchards where crops were looked or hoped for, will produce little or nothing. One gentleman, who for the past 10 years hu given much attention to the cultivation of peaches, both m a grower and a receiver la this market and who usually spends tbe months of March and April In Maryland and Delaware, and wbo this Mason hu visited every peach centre on the Peninsula, and bai gone wherever he oould hear of there being a prospect for any peaches, give It as the result of bit obMrvations that one car a day during the season would carry to market all tbe budded peaches tbat will be grown there this season. Bo asMit hit full belief la the accuracy of the theory advanced byT Times last February, that Intensely oold winters sdbh as we then had would not only destroy the youtg peauh germ, but would kill the trees, B found almost all orchards over Mvea years old utterly destroyed, while those yoanger were greatly diseased, and he says it to a melanoholy sight to ride over tbe State of Delaware and see tbe slaughter of the orchards by growers who, thoroughly convinoed of the diseased state of their orchards, are catling them off to use the land for other purposes. Bat while the Peninsula makes such an unsatisfactory promise of a peach crop, gratifying accounts come from the high country of. North-western Maryland around Bagerstown, and from West Virginia, lu the neighborhood ot Harper's Ferry, aad beyond there to the Ohio. .The pea crop of Virginia thla season hu been a remarkably good one. both in regard to quantity and quality. There war upward of 10,000 bushsls of them oa the Norfolk steamer which arrived oa Friday last, and they were in such nice order that .they oould readily have beea told for Maryland or en - New-Jeraey paaa had there bare any ready for shipment in these States. They will be here in great abundance thla week from Norfolk. Maryland, and perbap a few from Delaware, and .before Saturday they will sell for le' than $1 a bushel. Tbe weather has been favorable for the rapid growth and development of this vegetable. Asparagus, which sold during tbe early parts of last week at very low prices, wm advanced, owing to the cool WMther. In price, until i 50 to 13 nor dozea wm readily paid oa Saturday by grocery men for It It will be much more abundant thla week, and will Mil for m low prices u have been reached this season. This vere table require hot sans and warm nights to force its growth, and when the day are cloudy and the - night cool It grows very slowly. After the coplou rains of the past week a few warm day and night will fore it growth so rapidly that It will be in th markets la grMter abundance than before this season.

So many veare hare elapsed sinoe armed aentri s paced up and down upon wall 4 feet thick nd 14 feet high, occupying thla section of Wash agton-ttreet that even the tradition of the prisoi have been lost and nobody in the vicinity retain even a solitary legend of the old times when the ri er front wu here overlooked by what mnst have 1 leen. judging from extant cuts, one ot tbe gioon lest penal Institution la which convict wm ever elained. t'nc er early English rule certain hulks (or prison-ablp lying off Dockstreet and Coenties-slip were used or tbe Incarceration of criminals.

Escapes became matters of ev-ry day occurrence, so that the Grand Jury bad o interfere and appoint a patrol to guard tbe 1 risonara night and day. This precaution wu conti med until 1757, when tbe grim rectangle now styled tbe Ball of Records wu erected for the d atentlon of criminals, and the whipping-post cage, stocks, and pillory that formerly warned tbe evii- lsposed at the old City Ball were transferred to ti le new building.
