How a Lady Canvassed In Clare.
(A correspondent of the Waterford Mail
gives the following anecdotes of the late
election for Clare ; "The contest turned
wholly upon personal popularity, andcal
cutt, who is a farmer-like, jolly Irish
gentleman, ;was better calculated to win
upon the people than the fashionable
young captain of a crack corps. His wife,
too, would make the fortune of any, can
didate. A fine, dashing woman, she rode
about the country in the carriage with her
husband in his canvassing expeditions,
and when he was one day in a public
house, seeing a parish committee, and
she was outside in . the open barouche
awaiting hi-? return, the friezecoats gath
ered around the vehicle, and giving three
cheers for her honor, called upon hefto
make a speech. Prompt as lightning she
replied "I won't trouble yon my friends.

For th AdrertiieT.
Mr. Editor: ' '
I wish to say a few rrcrd3 through'
your paper to the teachers cf Christian-'
ity, who are in the habit of offering:, up
their prayers to the God of the Universe;
while standing.' This is the "point -ia
question. Was it the ancient mode" of
Christians to prav'standinr nr Li!;n:,?
The latter seems to nse the most' in ac
cordance with the pattern given, and if
it was the general habit then, it shculd
be yet. Sir, I take the position, that it
is the duty of all christians, to place them
selves in as humble an attitude as possible,
whenever they approach' their Creator iri
prayer, though it is a very common thing
to hear ministers say to their congrega
tions ; for the sake of formality, -we will
pray standing ;. then commence, by say
ing we present ourselves, in the. attitude
of" prayer. Now, if they have anyscrip-j
. . n Z. T.I 1 . ' .
iuic iu -uuuiu or sirenginen mis prac
tice, I would liketo see it. However, I
will proceechwTth a few quotations which
I-think are quite enough to convince any
one that standing is not the proper atti
tude of prater. By referring to-Matt.
VI 5, we learn, that the Hypocrites- lov'a
to pray standing in the synagogues. &c.k
that they may be seen of men! ' There

3. The main object of the Society being to pro
mote profitable cultivation, they do not propose to
formation. In the first place it is quite
apparent that there ha3 been a serious
decline in the. population of most eastern
cities. A few barely hold their own, and
u." r rj t:h.'.! Ir.M .-- s of decrease,
rV:ude::w, Khode l.-Ianu, has actually
experienced a decrease ; the same is the
case wi'h Syracuse, N-2W York. Even
of the S3ia:s --f Ohio, th Q Cleveland Dem
ocrat says: "It is feared the population,
instead of advancing, has slightly decreas
ed within the last ten year?, by emigra
tion and otherwise. Some of our cotem
poraries are warning their readers a
gainst extravagant anticipations in rela
tion to the increase in their respective
localities. The Boston Advertiser re
marks that those who expect much from
that city will be. doomed to disappoint
ment. The census returns of Cincinnatt
do not hold out as good a prospect as had
been expected, and it is thought the ag
gregate population will not exceed 1S0,
000. Baltimore has also shown a small
er increase than was anticipated. From
most parts of New England, particularly
New Hampshire, a decline is apparent.
On the other hand, the great West is
making tremendous strides. Illinois will
show a population of 1,800,000 against
850,000 in ISoO, an increase of nearly
one in illion. All of the Northwestern
States give nearly as good account of
themselves. It is likely that when the
next apportionment of Congress is made
that Illinois will gain 6 or 7 members,
Wisconsin four or five, Iowa and Minne
sota fuur cr five. The south western
slates, particularly Arkansas and Texs,
have also grown considerably within the
last decade, and will be euubled to in
crease their representation in Congress.
Westward the star of empire takes its
way. The great tide pushes onward to
ward the Pacific, and ere long we may
hear that the prosperity of Illinois and
Wisconsin is culminating a3 is now that
of the hitherto progressive State of Ohio.
The aggregate population 'of the United
States, as shadowed forth by the returns
will not be short of thirty-two millions,
an increase of nine millions during the
last ten years. How fast the to)
The following correspondence is said
to have taken place between a New Ha
ven merchant and one cf his customers:
"Sir Your account has been standing
for two years, I must have it settled im
mediately." To which the customer replied :
"Sir Things usually do settle by stan
ding; I regret to-say that my account is
an exception. If it has been standing

are the examples tf Paul, who all Chris-,
tians wculd do well to imitate. He also,
says to the Ephesians, III. 14, "For this
cause I bow my knees unto the Father cf
Lord Jesu3 Christ."
I have other proofs I could produce bu
I think it unnecessary. I 'say again, if
Ministers have any good reasons why
they will persist in standing up to pray, I
will be glad to hear them.- I think their
reasons will be about like one I heard,
given by a' minister once when spoken to
on the subject he saiduit was net always
convenient, sometimes preachers had otw
white breeches, and the floors were too'
dirty to kneel on."
Now, it does seem to me, that if cur
Savior could fall on his face in the Gar
den, while the apostles and others could
kneel on the ground ; that preachers and
others, now-a-days, should not be too
nice to kneel on Church floors. I nm cer--taia
if I was a professor of Christianity,
I should never approach my Creator in
prayer without bending my knees before
him. If .1 wanted to instruct men I would
stand up. If I wished to ask forgiveness -of
my past sins and return thanks for
past blessings before Gcd in prayer, I .
should always kneel down.
TIic Pigeon Easiness.
We give a table exhibiting the trco
quantity of pigeons shipped from thii
city, according toahe bills on file in the
express office. There are 8 shippers, and
the dates are from March 2S, to July 11. '
The number of pounds in the aggregate
is 105.S-35, or CSS barreb of pigeons,
upon which the freight amounted to S3,
588 97. M. H. Lstten alone shipped
2SS barrels. Latten & Co., also shipped
from this city 1,200 dozen frogs. . This
company consumed 12 tuns of ice, and
paid out 2,500 in this city and vicinity.
Computing the number cf pigeons at 400
per barrel the average of Lnttan Si co's
shipments we have the astonishing quan
tity of 235,200. At ten cents each thesa
represent a Talue of 823,520 ! Of ccursa
the great quantity consumed in cur heme
market is not included in the above esti
mate. Add to this the quantities shipped
aud consumed in our home market, is not
included in the above estimate. Add to
this the quantities shipped and consumed
at Grand Huveu, Iona, and other neigh
boring places, and the total aggregate
could hardly fall short cf between one
and two millions! Grand Rapids, (Mich
