the 28th of August, they lost one of
their crew, the dog, who died from
"vi " 1 1 'ii inn i mi in minimi
scurvy. They had a great deal of very
heavy weather, but the little bark bore
Jierself nobly, and the men themselves
expressed surprise that she rodo the
heavy gales so staunchly. She was
and the pumps, .of which they have
two, were kept at work constantly. In
the severe gale of last SaTTirday, they
experienced thn hardest time of the
voyage, but suffered no disaster, save
the carrying away of the jiugcr boom.
The largest uuniber of miles made in
one day was one hundred and fifty
three, i which was mude in th" firt part
of the voyage, aud thermal test eleven
miles. The average speed was four
knots an hour. A number of vessels
were ' spoken on ; the voyage, among
which were the bark Kadcliffe, on the
28th of June, bound to Quebec ; the
ship Moxwell, August 9, and tho
homeward bound steamer Russia on the
24th of August. From the first of these
two they took in supplies of provisions
and water! Two whales were very
neighborly off Cape Clear, coming near
enough to bo touched with the hand,
and giving the voy-g rs some alarm lest
they should.upset their trail ship. One
of ' Mother Carey's chicken's" attended

town till they pased George's Bank.
The men say that they had the most
prf-ct confidence in the success of
their enterprise, and in the - roughest
Sale could go to sleep with the greatest
composure. Only the 'lateness of the
season prevents, them from returning
home as they' came. Their original in
tention was to go direct to New York,
but they concluded to put into this port,
and will go from here to the former
place, and will remaiu this side of th
Atlantic till another summer. They
were towed to Long Wharf by the tugr

To Stop Usino Tobacco.- Dr. Bio
Lewis says: " I know I do not. echo
the voice of the world when I pay tha.t
the use of tobacco paralyses and dead
ens the moral sensibilities almost more
than auy oth r habit in which civilized
men indulge. Gentlemen, I advise you
to clean yourselves aud quit. I would
iveit up. It i a nasty disgusting,
ruinous habit. But somebody says,
i can't give it np ; I want to, and have
tried, but I can't do it." Can't you ?
Then I would'nt. But if you really are
so enslaved that you cannot gt t out of
your chain v I wiH help you a little
Stop to-night; don't use any to-morrow.
The first day will not be so very
hard. ; You can get on pretty well the
fiit day, as everybody knows who has
ben through the mill, as I have been.
The second day is pretty a 1 In the
afternoon of the second day your mem
ory is a little doubtful; you can't ex
actly s;iy whether it was two brothers or
three brothers that came over-; you
can't exactly say whether your grand
father came from the Ivjst or the -A Vest
when he settled here, t ut be patient
the second day. The third morning
comes the tua:. Now go and tako an
old fashioned alcohol sweat until your
skin is nearly parboiled. Then you will
be quite as comfortable for one day as
you could wish. There is no dryness
of the mouth, no disturbance of-the
secretions. You are perfectly comfort
able for one day. The next day you
are in trouble again, mt not so bad as
the day before. Take another sweat,
take even a third or fourth ouo. Sweat
ing does no't hurt people ; sometimes it
is good for them. Take three or four
thorough sweats, aud then you will go
oft under easy sail, and will have no
further trouble from your enemy."

How Tp 'Break off Bad Habits.
Understand the reason, and all the
reasons, why the habit is injurious
Study the subject till there is no ling
ering doubt in your mind. .Avoid the
places, the peisons and tha thoughts
that lead to the temptation. ?T Frequent
the places, associate with the persons,
indulge the thoughts that lead away
from temptation. Keep busy ; idleness
is the strength of bad habits. , Do not
give; up the struggle when you ! have
broken your resolution once, twice, ten
times, a thousand times. That only
shows how much need there is for you
to strive. When you have broken your
resolution, Just think -tho matter over,;
and endeavor td I understand why itf
was, you failed, so that you may be upon
your guard against a recurrence of the
same circUmstauces. 7 Do not think it a
little or easy thing that you have underr
taken. It is folly to expect to break oft
a habit in a da, which may have.beco.!

The Mtssetiger ' thinks one of the
most absurd perform mces of the tims
is the manner in which people at pub
lic meeting seek religion. It siys:
Kxcited seekers arc agnixing and
shouting and praying for faith without
any well defined notion of the fact or
facts to be believed, the evidence upon
which they rest? 3 The spiritual guide
at such meetings is generally boisterous
nd sontioies, impu lent, if not - irre
verent, in reminding the Lord that He
has made Certain promises and requir
ing and almost commanding Him to
come down now, and fulfill them.
Wilt the Messenger be kind enough
to inform us, as to the correct aud sure
, , t , -,
way to seek pardon, and how we can
brin about regeneration, and a new
birth in a respectable manner, t lie end
of which shall be Heaven.
A Sensible Prayer. A " nice
youag man," ho had changed his
mind for another, asked his affianced,
on the evening of their appointed mar
riage, if she would release him from
the eniragcment. She replied, in pres
ence of the party assembled : 44 Yes,
emphatically yes, and I am so thankful,
let us pray" When, alh had kneeled
down, the Jair young girl in bridal robes
prayed in a firm voice. , She asked for
strength to bear her humilities, and
cntinupd ' ' Have mercy on this new
wife. Whilo I thank thee, Oh God; for
my, deliverance from .such a pitiable
creature, I would ask thy blessing upon
his poor wife. Give her grace to bear
thb-afHicttoti of such a'h'usband. Keep
him from drink and may he become a
better! man.-U Watch over,; me, our
Father, and preserve me from ever ap
proaching io nearly to uttsr ruin. Give
me strength to retaVn to my homo and
preserve my sex from such men."--Revolution.
