Cathay, although she arrived at 8.30 p.m. on Wednesday, did not sail till 9 am. on Thursday. Daring the whole of the day the weather had been squally and threatening, and in the after' nooB it culminated in a regular hard south westerly gale, which blew with the force of a hurricaxe about 3 o'clook, and then toned down to a steady half-gale, raising an angry sea, which made clean breaob.es over the jetty till sundown, when there was a slight cessation of hostilities.

The rev. gentleman commenced by stating that he could not do other than present the most elemen tary truths on the subject, and these of coarse were the result of his reading and not of his own thinking. The task which he had set himself was to apply them to their special circumstances. Capital had been called 'the stored np labor of the past.' It was represented by money, and the statement thafMoneyanswereth all things,'wasso selfevi dent that it needed some mental effort to get & grasp of and habitually to bold the truth that money is not capital any more than that a rail way ticket was the engine, train, railway, and men by which one travelled to his destination.
