A Fact Fcll of Memukq.—Here is the finest hit we have seen at the present popular distinction between religion and morals: In a religious excitement in Boston, a person met a Christian neighbor, who took him by the hand and said : " I have become a Christian." " You are a Christian, then, all at once." said the other ; " you profess to act strictly on Christian principles. 1 am glad of it. I congratulate you. Suppose we now have a settlement of our little accounts between us. Pay me what thou owest." " No," said the new-born child, turning on his heel, "religion is religion,and business is business." So the paper tells us. And what is there so wonderful about it? Is not the world full of such Christianity ?¦

A roDNGisrt man. who had seen better days, asked a gentleman for a " trifile," which would be most " welcome" to assist him on his return to his native place. He was told that the Stranger's Friend Society would help him to a. passage to Ireland. "Och, sir," he exclaimed, "I'm not an Irishman at ail, at all! It's quite a mistake your honor's making " The gentleman persisted in his persuasion that he was an Irishman, ancl appealed to his brogue. "Ha !" (he man rejoined, "I was in a large mercantile consarn in London for many years, where they did a dale of business with Ireland; and as I was correspondin' dark, may be I caught the brogue that wny."

HOW MoNKETS ARK TAKEN IS DaRfooti.—Monkeys are pretty common, yet aa all the family arc remarkably- cunning, has it ever occurred to the reader how they are taken ? Pitfalls will lake e lion, and the famished monarch of the forest will, after a few days starvation, dart into a cage containing food, and thus be secured. But how are the mon keys caught? The ape family resemble man. Their vices are human. They loveliquor, and fall. In Darfour and Se£- nar the natives make fermented beer, sf which (he monkeys areexeessively'fohd. Aware of this, the natives go to the parts of the forestg frequented by the monkeys, and set on the ground calabashes lull of the enticing liquor. As soon as monkeysees and tastes it, he utters loud cries of joy, that soon attract his comrades-.— Then an orgie begins, and in a eliort time the beasts siow all degrees of intoxication. Then the negroes appear. The few who come too late to getfuddled escape. The drinkers are too far gone to distrust them, hut a...

School Superintendent. The Convention of the Directors of Common Schools in Centre county met on the 4th inst. They elected officers nnd proceeded to business. The exhibition was not a very creditable one.— there were none, or scarcely one as it seemed, to be found among the controllers of the education of our youth, who knew how the business of the Convention should be conducted. . The Democrats had arranged everything secretly; but their President and Secretaries did not know how to go to tfork to carry out the programme.— They wanted to cut down the salary, because of their inborn stinginess and illiberality, whether it was likely to cost them, any money or not, and even Orvis was received with coldness by his vassals when he tried to tell them the truth, (not strange, perhaps, as they were not...

Protection vs. Free Trade There can be no question that the free traders are at this time making a prodigious effort to engraft their policy on the Government; and there is just as little question that their success would be a ruinous blow at the enterprise and industry of the conn* try, both of which it would partially paralyze at once, putting a stop to the advance of manufactures, and greatly retarding the developement of all our mineral and other resources of wealth. The Free Trade, now calling themselves "Reform Leagues," are at work in New York, in the New England States, in the Great West, popularizing their ideas and maturing their plans for securing the co-operation of Congress and the Executive Department. This movement of the free traders has spurred the protective party to renewed exertions; the first demonstration having been made by the Pennsylvania Industrial League at their meeting in Philadelphia last week. It fs, indeed, time that, active measures should be t...

Irishmen There is not on God's earth a more magnificent country, nor one mere wretchedly governed than is Ireland/ —that beautiful island of the sea; compelled to support a church and priesthood foreign to her religious belief; her tenantry at the mercy of avaricious landlords; her people denied a fair representation in Parliament, and the merciless tax-gatherers eating up her substance. What but blight and desoluoion could befall her? What be left her bravest and best but exile and death? Yet, thank God. liberty progresses, and the entering wedge to Irish independence has been driven ! The established church bloated with wealth, wrung from a people who spit upon its doctrines, and despise its .priests, has been compelled to disgorge half of its plunder, and with the present bishops die their titles as Lords, and their rights to seats in the House of Lords, as representatives of a race oppressed for years—of a people who, like the Irish, had no rights the governing class were ...

Messrs. Editors _ : The srsuifizatiori of political parties are such that a large majority of voters have no will in the nomination of men, by parties,for;high and responsible public positions. None know this fact better than party managers who have been in the habit of making all the prominent party nominations without asking or receiving the advice or consent of one member out of ten of their party. This has always been the case in the Democratic party. As an original member of the Republican party, we have seen this evil increasing every year since the advent of our party to supremacy in the State and nation. Our party managers have frequently placed men in high official positions, who, through their ignorance and dishonesty, have injured the country and the party more than it were possible for the combined efforts of their opponents to do. The honest and reflecting members of the Repub - lican party have, for years past, frequently stifled their honest convictions, and vot...

bur Washington Letter Washington, D. O. May 7th 1869. Dear Republican :—We are being repaid for our pleasant winter by one of the most backward springs ever experienced in this section. Although we are almost in the. middle of Mav, fires and winter clothing are as necessary ttoW as three months ago. As a eonsequence the spring trade is exceedingly dull, and our merchant's faces are correspondingly long. We regret to state that quite a number of failures have occurred in the last Few months, in the District of Columbia, but without exception they seem to occur with the class doing ''credit business." Various remedies for the present stringency in the money market are proposed by different theorists, one maintaining that a Repeal of the Usury laws is all that is required to restore activity to commercial circles, another asserting that the scouring water transportation, at low rates, to the City is the remedy, and that the putting the "Canal" in naviable condition is the only ...
