Talmage has been doing New York under the care of the pólice, and each Sunday evening tells his Brooklyn Tabernacle congregiition, in a combined sensational, theatrical, farcical, and tragical way, a portion of the things he saw, - in gambling hall, dance hall, dfiuking saloon, etc. His marnier of reproducing the scènes which so "shocked" him does not seem to shock his hearers in the least, and his climaxes and anti-climaxes receive the same applause which is given the atar actor in a low comedy troupe. For all of which dispeii8ing with the gospel he gets 112,000 a year. - "Is it not heil for any humau ntortul to be ashamed of himeelf ? " was the (juestion Rev. Wm.
