Harpers' Monthly tells the following
good one upon the Rev. VV. P. Strickland,
a Methodist preacher, well known to the
t a 0
people Hereabouts; .
The Rev. Dr. Strickland ia ono of the
editors; of, the Christian Advocate and
Journal of this city, a Methodist p per of
gnat circulation and power. We have a
cnpiiol story to tell on the Doctor, and long
will it lie before he will hear tho last of
it. e often hear of men getting into
the wrong pew ; rarely of getting into
tho wrong pulpit. Of this latter blunder
our ury.i4o tell., -
A low Sabbaths ago the Doctor . was
over in Newark, New Jersey, where he
was to supply the pulpit ot the Clinton
Street; Methodist Churvh. He left his
ludgiugs in the mqrmtitr. iust about time
for the services, and, ! with one of the I
nieoibers for his , guide, he walked to
Clinton Street ; but just before reaching;
the house his companion was met by a
friend, who stoppeu him for a moment's
conversation. The preacher moved on,
and, reaching the church, walled LnVaud'
up the aisle, when he perceived that a
wronger, wnonj lie presume to be one
of tlie locul preachers, was already in the
pulpit. . Nothing daunted, he marched up
into the pulpit and took his 'teal,, while the
other man went on with the introductory
services. Dr. Strickland now concluded
that us he did not reach Newark until lute
the previous evening, the congregation
had becared another aupply, and lie there
fore determined to sit quietly und hear
the diMure, which would soon be forth,
coining. . - ,
The man in possesion, however, was
even more surprised thun brother Strick
land. as the new-comer a crazy man
who hud wandered up there? Certainlv
there was something liery iu his eye.
Perhapi he might become violent jf told
to leave. . But tomething rriuit bo done.
that was certain ; and while the people
were fringing, the, incumbent turned , to
the Doctor, and said, in , very gentle
terms: ... 1
I bjlieve I have not the pleasure of
your acquaintance,' ,
'My name is . btrickland, said the
Doctor, with an emphasis on the name
thai hf was sure would make him known.
i The incumbent shook h' head, and
seemed lost in thought; when all at once
it flashed on the new-comers mind that
he might have come into the wrong house.
Thia ia the Methodist Church, is it
not?" asked the anxious Doctor.
" Not a bit of it," said the other ; " you
are in the pulpit of the Congregational
Church. The Methodist church is a lit
tle farther down the street," ;
" Well, I must beg your pardon for thia
intrusion ; I had no design of abandoning
my own denomination so suddenly, and!
will bid you good morning." ,
At that juncture the sexton came up to
inform Dr. Strickland that a friend was
waiting for him at the door ! ' He made
his way out as gracefully as ha could, and
in five minutes was thundering in the
walls of another house.

Opening of the Land Ofllce,
We have another rumor that the Tub
lio Lauds in this district aro to bo rrstor
ed to market very soon, and this time, ap
parently, with a better foundation tlinn no
fore. Jt appears that the report to that
effect, which caino here two or three
months ago, was based upon mi actual de
cision of tho depnrtment ; the orders hav
ing been already mndo out for carrying it
into effect, . when, upon further consul
talion. it was re-considercd and the order
suspended i That since then, tho matter
has again been under consideration, and
thai measure positively determined upon
nil s'eps being actively taken for perfect
ing the allotment of railroud lands, and
other preliminaries to opening the Land
Ofliees for private entry in January or by
the (ir.t of Tebrunry next.
Thia will bo good news to a large num
ber waiting to procure lands in this dis
trict, and to all interested in the progress
of tho country. We give iho report as
we have received it, that all interested
may be prepared for a probable event, as
the source whence it comes is entitled to
credit. It is a measure which has been
so long contemplated and looked for, that
it is not reasonable now to expect ft much
longer delay at any rato. If the Govern
ment intends ever to re&lore its lands to
market as it undoubtedly does we can
not see any good reason lor with-holding
them longer. Council Bluffs Dvgle. ' .
