Organic error.

--Our allusion to the ‘"fine organ"’ of the Broad Street Methodist Church, yesterday, was founded upon a report that a new instrument had been purchased for that edifice, connected with the fact of hearing the tones of something in the choir that we took to be an organ. Our scientific knowledge in respect to organs don't comprehend anything much above the hurdy-gurdy, and hence we naturally made the mistake of applying a lofty name to a little instrument procured for the occasion.
