feeling prevalent, ilie Porte will not
riject the projwwals of the Powers.
The plenipotentiaries seem disposed to
m?ke slight concessions A dispatch
from Madrid announces that an extra
dition treaty between Spain and the
United States has been concluded. The
treaty sjcifies twenty-six offenses for
which jKjrsons accused may be sur
rendered, and is the most comprehen

M Berlin dispatch says Russia in

Church. It is built of pressed red
brick trimmed with gray sandstone. Its
architecture is English gothic. and it is
well lighted by ample siamed-glass win- j
dows. It is cruciform, with groined
arches and pilasters. And is decorated
with quatrefoil. trefoil, and other tra
cery, while between the elliptical groins
the vault is painted blue. The arrange
ment is amphitheatrical, the pulpit
being at the axis of a semicircle, or
rather semi ellipse, with the radiating
a?3le all centering there, and the seats
raising gradually one behind another to
the outer row. It is entered by several
doors, and the front of the building,
with its ample open vestibule is very
picturesque. As Lord Chester f.eld ad
vised his son to dress from his lecktie,
so the finisher of this edifice "eras to
have worked from the chandeliers.

There has been much interest revived
of late in "Poor Carlotta." The cause
is the death of her faithful physician.
Dr. Buekler, in Brussels. His interest
in the case of ihB Princess was very
remarkable, and he visited her shortly
before his death. Carlotta is still un
der treatment at Brussels. She still
remains in the sad, indifferent condition
of melanchollia, unaffected by anything
that occurs around her. She is ex
tremely submissive, and much is said
at her great patience.

vision from 1 2 cur's Journal, Hi'tabf!
in 1;G1. We have no mai.s of a-or-tainmc.
when the vision lUelf wax ilrM
put into print, but probably apiiml
as early as in 1. Can any of the oM
Friends give us any light on this jot?
The vbiiou re;ub as follows:
"In the year 1SUO. prulably in the
eighth or ninth month. I was one day
alone in the fields, and olwrved that
the sun shone clear, but that a mit
eclipsed the bnghtnen of it.s Zoning.
As I reflecN'd upon the singularity of
the event, my mmd w:i struck into a
silrnce.the most .solemn I ever remember
of having wiuiHwd, for it seemed as if
all my tarultl were laid low, and un
UMially brought into deep silence. I
said to in self, 'what can all this mean?
1 do not recollect ever lfore to have
been sensible of such feelings.
And I heard a voice from heaven way,
'Tins that thou seet, which dims the
brightness of the .sun. is n Mgn of the
present and coming time, I took the
forefathers of this country from a land
of oppression; I planted thein here
among the people of the forest. I sus
tained them, and while they were hum
ble, I blessed them and fed them, and
they iMJcame a numerous j.opIe; but
they have now lecome proud and lifted
up, and have forgotten me, who nour
ished and protected them in the wilder
ness, and are running into every abom
ination and evil practice of which the
old countries are guilty; and 1 hae
taken from the laud, aud suffered a dl
viding spirit to come among them. Lift
up thine eyes and behold.' And I saw
them dividing in great heat. This di
vision began in the church upon jkmhLs
of doctrine. It commenced in the Pres
byterian Society, and went through tht
various denominations, and in its pro -
gress and close, the effect was nearly
the same; those who dissented went
off with high heads and taunting Ian -
guage; and those who kept their organ
ized sentiments. appeared exercised and
sorrowful. And hen this dividing
spirit entered the Society of Friends, it
raged in as high a degree as any 1 had
before discovered, and as before, those
who separated went with taunting boks
and censorious language; those who
kept to their ancient principles retired
by themselves.
It next appeared in the Ixnlge of Free
Masons, and it broke out in appearance
like a volcano, inasmuch as it st the
country in an uproar for a length of
time. Then it entered politics through
out the United States, and did not stop
until it produced civil war, and an
abundance of human blood was shed in
the course of the combat. The Southern
States Iot their power and slavery was
annihilated from their borders. Then
a Monarchial power arose took the
Government of the States established
a national religion and made all Socie
ties tributary to support its expenses. I
saw thm take property from Friends
to a large amount. I was amazed at
beholding all this, and heard a voice
proclaim, "this Power shall not always
stand, but with this power I will chas
tise my church until they return Xo the
faithfulness of their forefathers. Thou
seest what is coming on thy native land
for their iniquity, and the blood of
Africa; the remembrance of which has
come up before me. This vision is yet
for many days."
I had no idea of writing it down for
many years, until it became such a bur
den that for my own relief I have writ
ten it. Joseph Hoag.

When Ericsson was building his little
Monitor, which was to have only her
nose of old turret above water, haw we
laughed! Bat when she drove off the
rebel .Merrimack every one of us felt
like hugging the little iron monster.
Herniating on the sides consisted of
five plates of rolled iron, each one inch
thick, while the turret was covered
with nine inches of iron.
"What! nine inches of iron! Xow
bring on your big guns" we said, and
smiled to ourselves ; and so they brought
them on not by way of war, but by
way of experiment, yon see until now
