complied. Tho oilier duy ho roeeived tho

$(, tho amount of your claim against me;
and also, many thanks for tho favor you
granted. Tho Lord, since my return, has
Messed me with an abundance of business,
all of which, I trust 1 have disposed of to
his entire satisfaction. On tho 1-th iust.
I baptized two hundred and twenty-three
converts, all blacks but three; and tho cer
emony, although performed with due de
liberation, occupied only ono hour ond five
minutes, You will seo that this was near
ly four a minute, and I consider it a dem
onstration that the threj thousand convert
ed on tho day of rentecost, could easily
have been baptised by tho twelve Apostles,
Vich taking two hundred and fifty, in on
hour and thirteen minutes. 1'leaso accept

ens' One of the neatest things that has
been done in these parts, and one of tho
)est jokes of the season, recently came
off at New Rochelle, ono of the sub
urbs of New York. Tho belles of the
Neptune House proposed to tho beaux ta
have a series of tableaux; a conuniuee was
chosen, and in a day or two the programmo
was published. Much that was funny, fair
and historical, was to be presented. Uut
what attracted ireneral attention was the
proposed tableau of tho "Greek Slave.
llosv this was to he done no one could
just see. To make a representation of
that wonderful work of urt, and at the Mime
timo to present a representation proper for
a mixed assembly to look upon was a mar
vel. The room was crowded and as the
time came near to present the "Greek
Slave" tho gentlemen looked dubious,
Many a fair cheek was intensely crimson
and some hearts palpitated. The cur
tain was rung up, and the sight called out
one of the mot violent bursts, of laughter
nnd applause that ever, shook a room in
New Uochelle. All alone, in tho center
of the stui;e, stood an Irishman, in rairs
with a shocking; lad hat on his head with
a hod on his shoulder, filled with bricks-
wininq; the sweat from his forehead, and
giving the fair assembly one of those broad
grins anl knowing knods so peculiar to
l'addy when ho wants to bo facetious.
The thing took in a moment, and the fair
inventors were rewarded with rounds of
applause front tho auditory, which the
most richly merited. for. Boston Journal.
Entering Town Sites.
The following correspondence will show
that the act of the last Legislature of tho
Territory, designating the County Commis
sioners a the proper persons to enter Town
Sites, is not recognized by the Commissioner
of the Land Otliee.
It is a question of doubt whether the Judges
of Probate, or the Fulled States Judges, can
he regarded as "Judges -of the County Court."
As soon as that doubt is removed, notice wi.1
be civen. In the mean time no entering of
towns not incorporated can be made.
A conv or the act or tne last l.esisiatuie
will be placed in the hands of the Commis
sioner, and, miller Hie circumstances, um en

called the Illinois, which is larger than tho

scoop some of it out, and then bring your
island over, we will drop it iii mi i:ir.r
