The Queen's Speech. Parliament was pro

She was received along the whole route by the
most enthusiastic cheers. The following is the
substance of her speech. After returning thanks
for the zeal and energy shown by Parliament
in providing means for the rigorous prosecution
of the war, she said:
In cordial co-operation with the Emperor of
the French, my efforts will be directed to the
efFectual repression of that ambitious and ag
gressive spirit on tlie part of Russia which has
compelled us to take up arms in defence of an
ally, and to secure the future tranquility of
Europe. You will join with me in admiration
of the courage and perseverance manifested by
the troops of the Sultan in defence of Silistria,
and in various military operations on the Dan
ube. The rest of the speech is quite local in char
acter, and matters connected with the war pre
vented the consideration of subjects promised
to be brought forward at the opening of the

most of that time, being: supported and cheered
by-the presence and blessing of Him who ever
sees and cares for us all. I have been enabled
to visit," talk oh personal religion of pray with
52G families, of whom 57 were -destitute of all
religious books but the IMble; 11 destitute fcf
the Bible, and 32 habitually neglecting the
kousc of God; aided in holding IT religious
meetings j soljL 939, volumes,, worth $200 19;
and gave away 34.V volumes, worth $41) .09.
About 400 of these families 1 visited a year
ago, and it is highly gratifying to see the im
provement that so many have made. in obtain
ing knowledge, and the manifest disposition to
continue improving. Many who then only took
a "Tract Primmer" at 10 cents, and frequently,
it given, on my second visit bought from one to
four dollars worth. In one neighborhood three
mothers and two fathers, besides several chil
dren, have learned to spell and read from this
precious little volume. A nd in another neigh
borhood there are 32 children over 7 years ohl
who then knew not the alphabet, and most of
whom never heard a sermon or prayer; all of
these now know the alphabet many of them can
spell in one and two syllables and some of the
oldest, 12 and 15 years old, can now begin to
read, and are able to answer most of the ques
tions in the first catechism. I wasalso forcibly
struck at their asking me so many questions
about God and Heaven. As there "is no church
suitably near for this people to attend, there
will in a short time be a good house erected, in
which to have a Sabbath school and 'regular
preaching. Several experienced persons live
miles off have consented to go and aid in this
Sabbath school. How delighted these children
are at this arrangement! Five mothers anc
two fathers of these children promised to go to
this school to learn to spell and read," two o
whom learned most of the alphabet on my last
After being kindly received by an obscure,
and destitute family, I had a pleasant talk with
the father, "mother, and little children, the
oldest about 9, and then gave them the first
Bible thev ever ownedj and also the "Primmer
from which I began to read and talk, and soon
each one said. "I wish I could read." Learn
ing from them that they once could spell, I
drew near them and spent sometime spelling
with them, and instructing them to read. Af

The3 had not been to church in two years.
Since my visit I have seen the husband at
preaching twice; and he, his wife and "oldest
child, are now being instructed to spell and
read I13' an individual of piety and intelligence.
I have aided in forming two promising Sabbath
schools in very destitute sections. Two of the
scholars are AI. and A., aged Hi and 14. The
mother of these children I found drunk; also
her child A., who was Iving on the floor in one
corner, pillowed with an oven-lid. I found M.
had a good mind and fine disposition, and seemed
deepl3 grieved at their condition, not being
able to spell or read, and seldom ever having
been at church. I found others near by in near
ly as destitute condition. Aid was afforded
them in preparing them for Sabbath school,
and ou the second Sabbath they all walked
together to the school in nice order and fine
spirits. How striking is the contrast in the
case of A., who two weeks previous 'was' lying
drunk, pillowed with an cvcn-l'ul, but now is
seen walking steadibj, with combed hair, clean
face and hands, neat new clothes, to the Sab
bath school to learn about Jesus! A young
minister of niuch promise recently said to me
about as follows : "Sir, I entertain feelings of
lasting gratitude for you, regarding you as an
instrument iii God's hands of bringing rue into
the ministry. For when there was a sore strug
gle as to my. taking, up this cross, I went to
where your books were spread out, and heard
you speak of the perishing hundreds and scarci
t3T of laborers, 'which rested with weight on mv
mind; and I bought I),Aubigne's History of
the Ueformation,' the reading of which deepen
ed 1113 impressions, so that before 1 had closed
the lirst volume I was filled with the spirit that
tired Luther's soul, and I at once hung my all
upon the cross of Christ as His minister."
At a receut meeting many have been hope
fully converted. One was a fine young lady,
who says that my visit to her father s house,
about seven inontliH ago, afforded the means of
her awakening. She, soon after my visit, made
known her feelings and purpose to five of her
associates, all ot whom covenanted with God to
seek salvation, and they have all now found
pardon and peace. -
The Female Tract " JJistnuutors" 01 iiaieign
are truly devoted to their "work of faith and
labor of love," in leaving a tract monthly with
every family in the city, talking with, aiding,
encouraging, and instructing such as are in need
of it. It is highly gratifying to know that they
are, generally, very kindly received, and that
their labors are highly appreciated bA the citi
zens and owned and blessed of God. A young
man of standing recently said to me, "The
Tract on Ardent Spirits, distributed br the
'Female Tract Societ3',' was placed in my hands,
which I read, and it fully convinced me of my
ruinous course, and I determined to abandon
the use of liquor entirely as a beverage, which
I have done up to the ''.present, and shall coin
tiuue to do so." This tract has also been the
means of reforming a dissipated young man in
the country, to whom it was sent by a friend.
A prominent man told mc that he intended to
be a standing colporteur, to keep on hand and
distribute that tract written by Dr. Edwards,
and I let him have a good supply. A family of
high standing, who made fashionable use of
liquors, told me that this tract had convinced
them of the great error in using it, even in that
way. The tract, "A visit to your Family," has
been the meaus of a father eommeucirvg family
prayer. And a young man said, "1 never had
such views of Eternity, my approach to it, ana
my foolishly spent time, as since I read the
tract, 'Serious Thought ou Eternity distri

widow, was the first to give a donation in .July

About two weeks ago, ns a gcntlen.nn firmer,
living in '-.Madison county, was riding touanl-i
his home,". not far-distant, he observed a man
and wonui" by the road-side engaged in repair-"
ing tin ware. A few days afterward.', a woman
called at his house, and after some conversation,
asked him if he did not recollect her. lie re
plied that he did not. She then told him that
she had seen him on the road a few days before,
and that his appearance had made such an im
pression upon her mind, that she wn ? compelled
to call and see him. She told him that she
was an astrologer, and that she was wi 11 sic
quaiuted with its mysteries. She saw at once
that he was an extraordinary person, nnd kr.c '.v
that he had been born under a particular planet,
and that great things might becxpicied of
him. She took from her apron a book whieb
seemed to contain a number of diagrams, ligures,
c. and -read from it, in an unknown tongue,
:i few ""hocus pocus" sentences, after whi'h,
closing it and putting it back into its hiding
place, she went into the kitchen, bought a few
pounds of butter of the wife of the gentleman,
for which she paid liberally, and went on Ik r
A . da'3' or two afterward, the wo'n.nn called
again, reiterating what slie had said on In r
first visit, the farmer paying but little attention
to what she said, looking upon the whole a'ii
as an attempt to humbug him. .Not at all dis
couraged, the woman called again the next,
dajv and wound up her conversation by savin::
that she knew where three hat crowns lull of
gold had been buried on his farm, and tht, if
he would do as she directed, thev could rcniwr'
it; but that it was necessary to allav the ,-jiiiils
that stood guard over it; that a large Mini of
none mt,-t bo-presenf with thvm n C the incan
tation. She thonght five thousand d'dhrs
would be required, but was not sure as to the
amount; -and she proposed if he would go into
it and furnish the money, that she would give
um two-thirds of the treasure, while ?he would
reserve the other one-third as her share.
Up to this time, the farmer appears to have
iad.no confidence in the woman : but as she
took his hand, and traced the mysterious line;:
therein, telling him the great things in store
br him, he began to place some confidence in
ier, especially as she had told him some thi;i";
that had occurred in his life, that he smnMed
tad never been known. About this time he
sold a large lot of cattle-,' for which he received
in cash about $4,000. The n xt dav the woman
called atniin, and said $3,000 was" the amount
equired to be present to alloy the spirits. The
jruier then produced the t. achate of mom v v -
ceived for the cattle, and the two sat down to a
table, and counted out $3, 000 in bank notes,
excepting'four small gold coins.! The money
was then folded, up, and put in a ha ndkcrchh I ;
the. woman all the time making strange motions,
and talking strange talk. The next day, -iM
the day after, the woman called again, each
time counting the money as before, making the
same signs, Sc., but leaving the money with the
farmer, wrapped up in the handkerchief. At
the next visit, she required him to take a .-!
oath, that he would not tell to a living .-oiu
the - object they were in pursuit of, that as h
was going away to be absent a short time, he
was not to look at the "package of m?n- i S
any time, 'excepting when xhewas present; and
after making an earnest prayer, she took hold f
him while she held the package of money in her
hand, and swung hint around, so that they
came together but k to' back. She then gnu,
him the handkerchief sis he supposed, -all right,
and told him that she would return on the t- th,
Ifith, or 17th of Awgrrsf, and then they w ould
go in company and secure the hidden treasure..
On the 1 5th he hardly expected to meet h-r,
and was not disappointed that she did not ( -ome
On the. 16th he sat up late at night .pecting
" After waiting till near midnight, on the
1 7th, he began to suspect nil was not rL' ht ,
and he feared all this might be a trsip to rob
him. " So strong did this suspicion fv-t-n upo
him that he to-tfk Up his trim, loaded it. and
went out into the shrubbery surrounding- the
house, where he could see all who approached,
without being seen, and remained there until!
two 'o'clock in the morning. Ibit no d? me.
As the time had elapsed that was set for Ins
fair visitor, he considered himself absolved from
his obligation, never doubting in the least, but
that his money was safely deposited in the
handkerchief, enrolling it carefully, w h-j. r v. -
his dismay at seeing, not a roIT of bank hill,
and four pieces of gold, as he had left it, but a.
package of brown paper.' and four cents, in li u
thereof. Even the handkerehif f had :-, m
changed; instead of its being his own, it was
one precisely similar. One of the strange: f
things in all this strange transaction is, that ;l
counterfeit five dollar bill that was phyi d in
the paeksige of money, was taken out of it, ami
returned in the roll of brown paper. How this
