'        :  1>BAS STANhKY ON THB EAIiLY CHRISTIANS.---  The Dean of Westminster recently delivered  ��������� iii i n ret esti ng, lecture on A the. ';* Early., Ch ris-  ;;imns."   In Ve course of bis lecture, Dean  Stanley said:���������It Is reported that John Wesley once in the course of the night found bim-  self as he -thought at the pates of hell.   He  fcii o cked, n ud asked who were wi th i n.   ������ A re  there any Protestants here V he asked.  ' Yes/  was the answer. * a great many.' * Any Roman*  Catholics V ..'Yes, a great   many.'    'Any  Church of England  men ?'    * Y*s. a great  many.'   * Any Presbyterians V   l Ye9, a great  -many.'   'Any Wesleyans?'    'Yes, a great  ttiany.'   Disappointed and discouraged, especially at the last reply, he traced his steps  upwards,  and found himself at the gates of  Paradise,?, and here  he repeated   the same  questions.   * Any Wesley a ns here V   'No.?���������  4,Any PresbyteriansV   'No.'   'Any Church  ,of England men ?'   ' No.'   ' Any Roman Catholics?'   'No.'    'Whom  have yon, then?'  Ke asked in astonishment ' We know nothing  here,' v?as the reply, 'of the names you have  mentioned.    The only, name of which we  know anything is Christian,  We are all Christians here, and of those we have a great multitude, which no man can number, of all nations, and kindreds, and peoples,and tontrnes.'  That is the truth which  we should have  fo  learn hereafter ahoul the name Christian, and  it may be aa well for tie to learn it bere..   It  includes and comprises and overrides all the  other names by which men have been divided,  t>ecause it is the name derived from Him to  whom they all look, from whom they are all  descended, and in whom they all live.  Christianity is a nobler name than any particular  form of Christians.   Christendom is a more  magnificent name than any particular creed  or section of Christians.  in each hand she held a wreath ; the one was  composed of natural and the other of artificial  flowers. Art .in. the-labor of the mimetic  wreath "had exquisitely emulated the lively  hues of nature, so that at the distance it was  held by the queen for the inspection of the  king it was deemed impossible for him to decide, as her question imported which wreath  was the production of nature and which the  work of art. The sagacious Solomon seemed  perplexed ; yet to be vanquished, though in a  trifle, by a woman irritated his pride. The  son of David���������he who had written treatises  on the vegetable productions.' from tbe cedar  to the hyssop'���������to acknowledge himself to be  outwitted by n woman wilh shreds "of paper  ond glazed paintings! The honor of the mnn.  arch's repuiaiion for divine sagacity seemed  diminished, aad the whole Court locTked  solemn and melancholy. At length an expedient presented itself to the king, and it,must  be confessed worthy .of the naturalist. Observing a cluster of bees hovering about a  window be commanded that it should be  opened. It was opened : the bees rushed  into tbe Court and alighted immediately on  one of the wreath's, while not a single one  fixed on the other. The baffled Sheha-had  one more reason to be astonished.at the'wis  dom ot Solomon.���������[J. CDisraeli.--  "MISCELLANEOUS.  A    Chance!  Solomon and the Quern of Shsba,���������A  Rabbin once told me of an ingenious inven-,  tion which in the Talmud is attributed to  Solomon :���������The power of the monarch had  spread his wisdom to the remotest part of the  known world. Queen Sbeba attracted by the  splendor of his reputation visited this practical king at his own Court. There one day to  exercise the sagacity of the monarch, Sbeba  presented herself at the foot of the throne.  A Martyr to Patriotism.��������� A small farmer  residing in the hamlet of.'Vjllebeau (Seme-et-  Oise), has, in a fit of mental aberration^ deprived himself, of sight, that he might; no.  longer be a witness,of .tho;pccupatiij'ri of .his.  country by the Prussians, who had burned  down all his property in bis presence, a mem  ber of his family perishing in the flames. He  had often threatened that*be would tear out  his eyes, and everything that could be thought  dangerous was kept out of his way. He,  however, got bold of a.book,which described  the Chinese method of blinding offenders of  high position, by placing a small portion of  quick lime over the eyes and tying it down  with a wet bandage.. He procured some  lime, applied it in this manner, and destroyed  his sight.  Tun New York Worid^bus mi interesting  letter on tbe enormous increase of iron shipbuilding in Great Britain. The great centre  of this interest is the river Clyde, both shores  Of which are lined for miles with shipyards.  The writer says,upon what lie considers good  authority, that there are-5.400 iron steamers  now building in the United Kingdom. He  adds that the British merchants are diverting  their maritime trade from sailing vessels to  steamers as fast as they can, the completion  of the Suez canal being the great event which  has awakened tbem to the increased advantages of steam over sail.  :;������  PARTIES   PREPARING    FOR   WINTER  WILL   SAVE   MONEY!
