Desecrating the Pulpit.

--The Boston (Mass.) Transcript, alluding to Berkshire county, in that State, says:--‘"They have a new way of advertising newspaper writers in Berkshire, which Bonner should not be slow to adopt. A clergyman in the south part of the county lately announced from his pulpit that the local paper of the succeeding week would contain a poem, and such of his congregation as missed reading it would lese a valuable literary treat. The production was by the minister's wife, and of course was generally perused."’
