GODLKSSNESS OT ENGLISH SOCIETY.— Bishop Julius, preaching at Sfc, Michael's, Christchurch, last evening, said:—"lspent many months m England, and I never felt so deeply the terrible results of the growth of materialistic science and what is now called by a good many agnosticism. Society m England has got rid of God, and heaven, and hell, and every sort of influence and control upon itself. And the result is that Society m England, without control, is pleasing itself, following its own ways and going down, down, down." Dr ruseell, speaking on the subjeot of creina.ion at Christchurch on Wednesday evening, said that he had examined the cifcy destructor, and found that the retorts were quite capable of taking a human body. He thought that the unclaimed bodies which had from time to time to be disposed of should be cremated. The adoption of such a process would be the means of gaining support for the principle of cremation. Discount Tickets given with all cash purchases of Groceries at John Ore & Co.'a
