Finding in many newspapers a story charging a priest in Baltimore with hav ing undertake? on a Sunday in Septem ber last to interlard his sermon with di rections to his flock how to vote, tic. we publish the following letter from the Richmond papers, which sets it at rest. The writer is vouched by the Richmond papers to be in all respects a good citi zen, and a reputable and reliable man It strucz us, on seeing the story, that it was made out of the whole cloth, if but for the fact that any effort in September last of a Catholic priest to inter A re in politics with his church full of auditors would have found its way into the news papers long since. For it will be remem bered that a very large proportion of our , fellow citizens now watch every act of I ?lerJ Catholic priest, and the doings ol all Catholic ecclesiastical bodies and in stitutions throughout the country, with great jealousy. Card to the Public?In the Penny Post of Wednesday, tkere is a long letter from } alentme Heckler, in which the lollowing passage occurs: 44 But there is another thing that made me a Know Nothing, and that is, that I was earned into the 4cnivert' by mv brother German, Mr. Ilenry Miller where I 4saw the elephant' large as life.' In the month of September last, I was in Baltimore with him, and he took me up tothe German Roman Catholic church, where I heard the priest preach in the German language hom 11 o'clock to 1, on politics, with a newspaper in his hand, trom which he would read, and then address his congregation. He told thorn in my presence and my hearing tiiat tho3: who did not come up 4on the . next .Sunday and pledge themselves to vote for candidates that certain parties were to nominate that week, (for the Maryland election was to come off on the following month of October,) would no longer be permitted to claim Jesus as his brother or Mary as his sister, point i mg at the same time to a picture of Je<=us and tho \ irgin Mary. If I had not been satisfied before, this would have been enough to convince me of the dangerous influence of the priesthood, and the unfit ness of the Komaa Catholifcs to govern this country; and that the two matters ol politics and religion, or church and S.ate, were too much mixed up with that denomination of Christians, to command my confidence in the selection of proper pel sons to discharge the duties cf our public stations." 1 dislike to appear in the public prints, but a sense of justice and right compels me to notice the above cr.lumny. I was in Biltimore in September last, on business, and staid at the same hotil with Heckler. On Sunday morniuc I left the hotel for Church, and Heckler forced himself into my company, and fol lowed me through several streets, until we reached the German Reman Catholic Church. lie was in such a state of in toxication, that I was ashamed to enter the body of the church, and I stopped with him in the last comer of the galle ry* There was no sermon preached at all?the Priest only read Archbishop Ke- rick s Pastoral Letter, which had not the least reference to politics, as may be seen in the copy now in ray possession, it is utterly false that any allusion wis made to politics, and the whole inven tion of Heckicr, to this effect, is a tissue of falsehood. I can prove by many witnesses all I hare ?aiu above, und I now leave the matter with the pubiio. Hzxnr Miller. 2HE CAPTAIS'3 BAIHIH3 TUB. A'SAILOR'S TARJf. A cabin-boy ot one of tho ward-room officers, on board a United States vessel, a good deal given to mischief, one day made his way into the captain's cabin, while they were engaged above making out a strange sail in tha horizon. Here he finds all sorts cf luxuries, including various wines, of which he drinks enough to raise his courago not only, but to make him somewhat reckless of conse quences. In this state he finds himself in a room adjoining the cabin, a tin bathing tub in one corner, luxuriously supplied with rare cosmetics, and *? smelling like a barber s shop of the first class." 4'Now," | says he, 441 had tried all the other good things that I had found in the cabin ; I had drank the captain's wine, and straightened myself out on his sofa, and swung in his hammock ; and I thought 1 wouldn't quit without takra? a dip in his bath." ? 1 Accordingly he strips, and i3 just en joying the first pleasant feel of the water when he was interrupted by the messen ger^boy, who had been sent into the cabin b^ the captain. Fortunately he was not I discovered this time, but it made him cautious. * * * # # " I must contrive some way to get out with my clothes if anybody came along again. I wasn't long in finding the way, The ports on the side of the forward ca bin were open, and through them I could easily get out into the miaen chains, where 1 could dress myself without be ing seen. There was a big gun in each port, a 'carronade' as they call em short but fat?the biggest kind?you never saw such kinds of guns except board ships of war. I could clamber out along side cne of easy enough, tho' I was a little fellow then. Qe takes his shoes, clothes, and hat, and sticks them outside of the port where they couldn't be seen; 44 and then," he says, 441 went back to the tub. All this didn't take more than half a min ute, for I worked sharp, I can tell j ou. The only thing that I was afraid of was,' that the steward would come in andl catch me. 1 didn't care a tinker's cop per for the captain. I knew I could get' out of the port in less time than would J take him to come down the poop-ladder. THE WEEKLY STAR.

Big bugs are never in a hurry?it would not look dignified, you know." Presently, while lying luxuriously in the captain's tub, be bears him coining down the cabin stairs, when he jumps out of the receptacle and makes for the port: "I was fairly outside and sale, as I thought in the chains, before the captain opened the cabin door. I sat there a minute drying myself, and then was go ing to begin to dress when I heard the sound of oars coming round the stern of the vessel, and by the noise of the oars in the row-locks, knew it was a man*'war's lx>at. ar?d of course, I supposed it was the first cutter coming alongside, though it seemed to me she had come up mighty quisk. 44llcra I was in a fix. They wou'd see me from the boat as soon as she pull ed round the stern and I t hould havo had work to tell what I was doing, stark naked in the chains. I couldn't get my clothes on quick enough to be ready for company?for I couldn't stand up with out considerable risk of being seen from the poop, in case some fellow happened to be looking over the larboard 6ide. I concluded pretty soon what to do. I first looked into the cabin. The captain Wasn't in sight, so I jammed my clothes into the muzzle of the gun, and then got in, after, myself, feet foremost. I told you, you know, that guns of the kind they call carronrdes are short, but have most tremendous big bores. They are tised in close fighting, and, when noth ing else comes bandy, they load them with a cask of nails," and such sort of things. I shoved myself in feet foremost, because I knew that if I rammed my head in first, with my body on top of it for a wad, it would be rather close quar ters for breathing. I found it rather a snug berth as it was; I couldn't move an inch after I had got in, but I knew I was out of sight at any rate. 44I supposed that after the men had come aboard, the boat would be hauled out to the booms, and that then I could get out of the gun. Bat instead of that, they had the cutter loaded with some thing, I don't know what, that it took pretty near an hour, it seemed to me, to dear her of. They got a sling on the main-yard, and I could hear the orders given to hook on it the boat and the bo sn's mate in the gangway piping to haul taut and 'hoist-away' and *avast hoisting,' and 'come up,' over and over i again, until it appeared to me they had * <;ot a dozen launch boats over the side. 4 Cy this time ray back began to ache with lying in the bore of that old gun; it didn't exactly fit my shoulders. 4'I now began to hear talking in the cabin?the gun, you know, was in the cabin, except the muzzle of it, that run out of the port. I couldn't hear so well through the iron, though, aud it was some time bofore I could make out what the talk was about. I could distinguish the captain's voice, and could hear the words 'lock' and 'wafer,' pretty often. At last he and the man he was talking with came close up to the very gun 1 wt$ in; and then I heard him call "the gunner by name in talking to him, and I recog nised him by his growl. I heard him rubbing oil the gun with his hands and playiug with the lock, and two or three times he snapped it; and it roe feel a littlo nervous, for I didn't know what might, have put in it." He finds out at last what they wero talking about The gunner has been making some pereus ion-wafers that he thiuks will never miss lire, lie said they would set the discharge oft without any priming, and wasn't sure that there would be even tn/ reed of pricking the cartridge. The captain tells the gunner to try some of tho new wafers on the rery gun the fugitive is in ! 411 was just going to sing out," he continues, 44 when the captain asked tho gunner if he was sure the gun wasn't' loaded. 44Yes, sir,"' says he; "the charges were all drawn when the ship came in, and these guns in the cabin haven't been loaded since." 44 That was not so bad, after all. They were only going to try if the wafers would snap?so I concludcd to keep quiet. I didn't auite like the idem, though, for I wasn t quite so well ccn tented with the gunner's tiial in the gun as I should have been out of it. I wasn't quite as easy in my mind as I had been an hour before, when I was swinging in the captain's cot. I lay still, though, a- d meant to see it out. I knew there wasn't any shot in the gun, at all events, and I didn't think a blank cartridge would hurt me much, seeing as I had pushed my trowsers and frock in before I had got in myself. If I had gone in head foremost, I should have been a good, deal more worried about the matter; but^ thinks I to myself, 44 I'll risk the feet!" ? 44 So there 1 lay, aching all over, from having my shoulders and hips jammed in between the round sides of my berth, and listening to the talk between tho captain and the gunner that came in at the tooch-hole, and stiange that I got every thing mixed up in a heap, in my mind, as to what w;>s going on outside. At last, however, I heard the cliek of the spring, as the gunner cocked the lock, and the next instant?" 44 Well! what then ?" 441 was going through the air as if I bad been kicked by a forty-horse power ! My clothes didn't follow me more than ftrty fathoms, but I didn't touch the water till I was a mile and a half from the ship!" That he was saved is a matter of course,44 else wherefore breathes he in a Christian land to tell his wobdroua yarn." Like Hood'* story of the aronaut who was thrown out of the balloon by a crazy man, when some two miles up in the air, and himself describing the circumstance*, and the moon-hoax of Mr. Locke, this 44 yarn" derives its interest from the nat uralness of its minutia, rather from the probability of its catastrophe.
