That )>nrt of the Eastern hemisphere comprising Europe. Asia and Africa This answer ap" peared to take all by surprise, which the class perceiving, immediately went on to explain, saying, that all geographers, as well as all lexicographers, defined an island to be land surrounded by water; that although New Hol land has always been sot down as the largest island, yet such was not the fact; that it is well known that Europo, Asia, and Africa, is surrounded by water, that it has repeatedly been circumnavigated by mariners, and there fore, in the strictest sense of the term, these three portions constitute th? largest island in the world.

DAILY EVENING STAR. Preaching a Practical Sermon. A number of years ago, Parson B preached in a town in the interior of his State. A sound theologian was Parson K , as a published volume of his ser mons evinces; bui. like many clergymen of the past generation, he was too much given to preaching "doctrinal sermons," to the exclusion of " practical" themes? at least, so thought one of his parishon ers, Mr. C . "Mr. B ," said he, one day, to the clergyman, "we know all about the doc trines by this time. Why don't you sometimes preach us a real practical dis course?" "Oh, very well. If you wish it, I will do so. Next Sunday I will prcach a practical sermon." Sunday morning came: and an usually large audience, attracted by the report of the promised novelty, were in attendance. The preliminary services were ^formed, and the parson announced his text. Al ter "opening his subject," he said he should make a practical application to his hearers. He then commenced at the head of the aisle, ca...

DAILY EVENING STAB. [From the An <>?? urapliy "W <-ol. Toimbult. A Noble Example of Early Times About the year 1770 a circumstance oc curred, which deserves to be written in adamant. In the wars of New England with the aborigines, the Mohegan tribe of Indians earlv became the friends of the English. Their favorite ground was on the banks of the river (now the Thames,) between New I/mdon and Norwich. A small remnant of the Mohegans still ex i-t, and they are sacredly protected in the possession and enjoyment of their fa vorite domain on the banks of the Thames. The government of this tribe had become hereditary in the family of the celebrated I neas. During the time of my father s mercantile prosperity, he emploved Fed eral Indians of this tribe in hunting ani mals, whose skins were valuable for their fur. Among these was one named Zach ary, of the royal race, an excellent hunter as ever lived, but much addicted to rum. When lie had somewhat passed the age of liftv, several ...
