Of tho several departments of the

partment. Tho entire appropriations
by Congrcsi was only a little over 13,
000,000, says the Statesman. Such an

Henry Ward Dccchor,who has been
distinguished for overstepping tho
customs of tho ministerial profession
in the manner of his speech, is charged
by tho World as using the following
language. If ho used this language,
it is probable that it was in connection
with further remarks which would
quniify and explain it", andthc publi
cation of this extract, unaccompanied
by the context, docs him an injustice :
"Who was Jesus?" A peasant, a
mechanic at a period of tho world
when workmen were very low in tho
social scale ; nnd if ono had asked who
was tho Divinity whom you worship,
ho would havo said, Jesus. Of what
country? Nazareth. Who were his
parents? Joseph and Mary, reputed
ly. Who was his mother? Mary,
who just escaped divorce through the
magnanimity of her betrothed. Who
was his father? No one a bastard
Jow. What was his country? Judea.
What did ho do? Worked ns a car
penter in the shop of his putative
father. What became of him? He
was charged with a violation of tho Ro
man laws, tried and convicted and
put to death. A bastard Jewish me
chanic: a malefactor put to death for
violuting the laws of his country! Is
that tho fellow you bring to mo to wor
ship? Now, if you look at things
from tho surface, Jesus was that and
that only ; and Paul, having the high
est training, might easily have thrown
over all the poetic veil of mystery.
