Clapping of hands in a Boston Church.

--During the delivery of the Fast day sermon of the Rev. Dr. Stone, in Boston, Friday, while the minister was warming up with the idea that New England would be better off, in the long run, without the company of the other States, there was a tumultuous burst of applause from a large number of persons present. The deacons were shocked, as well they might be, and the sexton turned as pale as a ghost. "Is this the House of God?" mildly inquired an old lady from the surburbs.-- "Marm," was the reply she got from the party addressed, "this is the Church of the Rev. Dr. Stone."
