Reports from Montauk Point received at Ami-ganvett say that the storm at the former place was one of tbe worst that has visited that place in many years at this season of tbe year.

Deep gullies were washed in many of the roads, pig pens were flooded aud sheds were washed away. The lightning, however, was not as severe as on other occasions, and, so far as is kuowu, no bulldinga were struck.

Hobbs, ot tiie Twenty-fourth Ward, Sheriff Rhineharva counsel, contains too misstatements of fact, which, in the iuterestoi fait play, ought to be corrected. They are said to bo os follows. First, That a majority of (he members of the Executive Committee ot the Republican General committee of Kinps County signed the appitca-ttou of Ur. Ernst Nalban for the Collectorsuip of Interual Revenue in the First District in bad laith. tsecond, That eighty percent, of lb members of tbe Executive Committee are now opposed to Mr. Nathans appointment. Tne first of these statements. If they have beeu made as reported, contaius a very serious reflection upou the majority of the members of tbe Executive Committee end it grimus that the active opponents of Mr. Nathan were themselves guilty of gross hypocrlsx and double dealiug, and it is uot the truth that SO percent, of the members of the Executive Committee are opposed to Mr, Nalhau's appointment Of course the report that such statements had been made called forth a fierce rejoinder from the fneodsof Mr. Nathan to-day. They chatteuge any of bis opponents to say that any one of the following members of the Executive Committee acted in bad faith in giving his indorsement originally to the candidature of Mr. Nathan for the Coiieotorship of Internal Reveuue, or has withdrawn his iudorsemeut of Mr. Nathan oris opposed to Mr. Kathsuis appointment to-day: Theodore B. Willis and rrauktlu Woodruff, of the First Ward; Jere Fuld, of tbe Second, Edward B. Porter, of the Third, Michael J. Daily, of the Fourth; Denis M. Hurley, of the Sixth; Charles H. Cotton, of the Seveutb; Jacob J. bchiusser, of tbe Eleventh; James Johnston, of the Twelfth; William H. Leay craft, of the Thirteenth; Samuel T. Maddox, Of the Fourteenth; i homos Hobby, of the Filteenth ; Louis K. Nicot, of the Sixteenth ; Francis F. W llllams, of the Eighteenth ; William J. Taylor, of the Nineteenth ; George Neff, of the Txveutteib ; George Gtecn, of the Twenty-second ; Daulel W Northup, of the Twenty-third ; Gustav Jabn, of Fiatbush ; Charles C. Overton, Gravesend, and J. Lott Nostrand, of New Utercht. It Is known tothe writer personally that an effort was made to get some of the twenty-one gentlemen to withdraw their signatures from Mr. Nathan's application, but that it fatied. A fair diagnosis of the Executive Committee shows that tbe following geutlemen are really the active opponents of Mr. Natban for the Ooileriorehip of Internal Reveuue : James W. Birkett, of the Fourth Ward; William J. Buttling, of the Filth; Robert W. Fielding, of the Eighth. Elisha T. Everett, of the Ninth, George Kenueth, of the Teuth; William H. Williams, of the beventeenlh; Jonathan W. Moore, Jr , of tbe Twenty first; Edward H. Hobbs, of the Twenty-fourth; Robert bbarkey, of the Twenty-fifth; Israel F. Fischer, of the Twenty-sixth, and John Maubews, of Fiaiiands, twelve in ail out of a total of thirty-three members. It Is reported that siuce Mr. Fielding, tbe member of the Executive Committee from tbe Eighth Ward, found that some of his associates were williug to eee Mr. Nathan made United States Marshal for tbe Eastern Districtof New York, tne plaoe which he (Mr. Fleldiug) is after, if only to keep Nathaoz out of the Interual Revenue Department, be has changed bis mind in regard to the situation stud to now for Mr. Nathan for the Coliectorsbip of luternal Revenue. The fact that Assemblyman Joseph Aspi-nall, of the Eleventh District, to entirely wilting that Mr. Nathan shall be appointed United States Marshal for this district shows conclusively that, in bis optnioa, Mr. Na thau to not personally unfitted to be Collector of Internal Revenue, and tbat tbe opposition to him is based upon considerations which have little weight outside the narrow clroic of professional politicians. Tne bugbear of Nathan's opponents really appears to be that if he should be appointed Collector of Internal Revenue he would use tne patronage of tbe bureau to help his friends and get even with his opponent but the patronage ot the place is very small, alter ail. and Republican nominating conventions are now, fortunately, large enough numerically to take care of themselves. Few people of oommon sense will be frightened by this bogy. On the other hind, Mr. Natnao's candidature has beeo indorsed as worthy by such leading Republicans of Ktugs County as Gen. Jourdan, ex Justice Nseber, Henry Batiermann. County Clerk William J. Kaiser, Henry Bristow, Silas B. Duicber, tbe Hon. Jamee 8. T. Straushsn. Presideutisl Lieetor at Large from New York State Nelson J. Gates. Commissioner of Charities and Corrections W illiam H. Ray, Hugo Hirsch. President of the Republican Association of the Third Ward, E B. Thomas, President of tbe Republican Association of (he Twenty-third Ward; ex Aidormen George G. Collins, President oi tbe Republican Association of the Twenty-first Ward, and many others.

It la only when a ministor preaches out of bit own heart that be reaches the hearts of other, A purely intellectual sermon stops with the in tolled ; a doctrinal sermon ts nothing more tbad a spiritual opiate. But let a man uucr what h baa felt and known, let him touch tiie harp-string that has vibrated In his own soul, and there oomei that bush and spell over an audience that chained attention, that lifting of faces wbicti teems like a white tablet for Gods finger to write on. Whohainot felt the irresistible power of fe hidden experience Interpreted by another soul f This is tbe secret of all oratory, of ali sympathetic power of man over man. The greatest preacher are not those who may lay claim to tbe highest scholarship, who are profound philosophical thihkers or doctrinal giants, but whose large hearts bave throbbed with the tieernst spiritual experiences. "Out of tbe abundance of tbe heart the mouth speaketh." These are ihe men who can lay hold on vast audiences (nd sway them as the wind sways a forest. Tffielr lam guage may be plain, their style uupolished, theil manner awkward, but they know ifie stops and koysof the humau heart as tbe organist know his instrument, and all the solemn aud iweef music of life answers to tbeir touch.
