aisle to the back side of the jail, he wa
horrified to see yoiin;? Finlayson hang

From the edition of Messrs. Q eo. P
1 towel: & Cos "American Newspaper
Directory," nor in press, it appears
that the newspapers and periodicals of
all kinds at present issued in the United
State-) and Canada rea';h a grand total
of 13,402. This is a net gain of precise
ly 1,600 durin? -the last twelve months,
aud exhibits a.u increase of -VilS over
the tot;-l number published just ten
years sinoe. The increase in 1874 over
the total for 1873 was 403. During the
past year the dallies have increased
from 1,138 to 1,254; the weeklies from
9,062 to 10,028 : and the monthlies from
1,091 to 1,400. The greatest increaso is
in the Western States. Illinois, for
instance, now shows 1,003 papers in
place of last year's tocul of 9Jl, while
Missouri issues 604 iustead of tho 523
reported in 1S83. Other leading Wes
tern States also exhibit a great percen
tage of increase.

Auyniio who roads tho following, clipped

by tho Hentfd why the clergymen of tho city

ting public will make a distinctiug where
our cotemporary ds-i not. When the

used, the pooplo will st oaes ny that tho

tho word "Christian" is u ted as applied to
that reap--table chriatiaa denomination

our cotemporary We ju lgo not. It ta

We take the following from au ex

on the union services beiug held in this
city, Alter speaking of the belief of a
member of the church which the paper
represents, tlio writer says : "Here are
six clergymen who have not obeyed that
postive command and henc3 our brother
does not believe that they have been
baptized in Jesus Christ, that thoy are
not members of the Church of Christ, In
short that they are not ohristlans at all,

Albany, where ahe could count her friends
by the score. The following from tho Demo

an aWsaSBaabii oucg woman .
"Mioa Alma btory hat lived in onr city

unassuming disposition and possessing those

woman's nature, sho waa the idol of a very
large circle of f. 'leads. It ia haid to bo forced
to realize that site is with us no more.
Harder still will it be, when visiting those
places where oho was once a constant visitor,
toades her familiar face. Whoa we think
ef iitr cjntagioua good aatura and pare char

eg in the land of the Uving ; but alas '. The
fates have decreed otherwise and many will

arranged in such a way that there will be
one in each room when the do- ia are closed.
In the awstter of the pulpit is a commodious
baptismal font, which can be entered from
