BEECHER ON CALVINISM.
Henry Ward Beecher is very hard on
the Calvinists, though what has provoked
his energetic and uncomplimentary lan
guage does not clearly appear. It is true
that what he says about the Calvinistic
ideal of God has been said before a great
many times, but it does not seem to have
had any marked effect in mitigating the
austerities of that peculiar creed. It [is
certainly the case that Calvinism has
always been clung to with a very real
affection by those who have been broughtup
in it, and that its sternest and most repellant
features have been most affected by per
haps the majority of its followers. It has
been wickedly suggested by persons en
tirely devoid of grace that possibly thsra
may bo some special pleasure in the theory
that nearly everybody is to be roasted
through eternity, and that thi) pleasure
consists principally in the conviction,
tolerably certain to be entertained by the
godly, that whoever else is destined to
perdition, they will be saved. That
there ia some solid warrant for
this belief must be admitted, seeing
that no less an authority than Saint Au
gustine declared one of the foremost
beatitudes of Heaven to consist in the con
stant observation of the torments endured
by the tenants of the other place. So
orthodox an opinion *as this cannot be
lightly set aside, and therefore it is pos
sible that the Calvinists do derive from
their view of the future a faction
sufficient to attach them to their belief
with remaikable firmness. It would, how
ever, be unjust to so eminently respectable
a sect to intimate that they are at all
singular in declining to believe that anyone
who .' does not . accept ■ their theological
scheme can be saved. ; That exclusive
thooty is common to J nearly all churches,
and there can be little doubt that it has
been very influential ; in keeping them to
gether, in keeping ■ them j apart, and in
causing them to diverge J farther and far
ther from the foundations of all Christian
faith. . . -■- ■■')■ . - 'yy
The English Government and the Irish
Land Ijcagno are both drifting, and it is
not difficult to perceive the point at which
they must arrive eventually if the present
dispositions are maintained. The Govern
ment ia reluctant to adopt strong measures,
but it is filling Ireland with troops. The
Land '. League professes a determination to '
avoid insurrection, but it is : drilling the
Irish people ; for a stubborn resistance .to
the spirit if not the letter of the law. The
practical result of the Laud League tactics
must be to deprive all landed property in
the island of present value. If the Gov
ernment permits that to be done it will
become evident to all the world that it has
ceased, to govern Ireland, : and that the
'', Land League has superseded it. It cannot
therefore tolerate this programme, and as
the Land League either will not or cannot
go back, it is very clear that the resort to
coercive measures will be unavoidable in
the end, no matter • how reluctantly .they
may be employed. , That this is the right
way to secure land reform no sane observer
can believe, but the i real difficulty is that
with '» very largo '". proportion of i the sup
porters of the Land J League such reform is
a secondary consideration, and: repeal of
; the ? union is the primary :. incentive to
action. Of course this naked the situation
ul the more hopeless. ........ I
A MORMON ON MORMONISM.
; Bishop Sharp, of the Church of . Latter
Day Saints, appears to be a•. much more
candid and outspoken Mormon ■_, than *is
commonly encountered.- He is represented
as saying to a New York reporter that
polygamy is not optional "- but obligatory
with the members of his Church, and that
" those who say otherwise ; are not true
" Mormons, or do not '; know what ; they
" are talking of." Though it is in theory
obligatory, however, it is J obviously im
practicable to make it compulsory, since
to do so would involve the necessity of
forcing men to marry more wives than
they can maintain, or of making the
Church ' • subsidize ■•' impecunious ■ polyga
mists., The ' latter J course " would "beJ: a
novel application of the J protective , prin
ciple, but it could hardly be made remu
nerative •to the ', Church. ' Bishop Sharp
says that the j Reynolds ' decision against
polygamy has had a " certain effect in re
stricting plural ' marriages, but he inti
mates that the increasing extravagance of
the Mormon ladies has thus far been the
most effectual hindrance. In . the : coun
tries where polygamy is sanctioned alike
by law and usage it has been found neces
sary to meet this tendency to . extrava
gance on the part of the female population
by abridging their liberties. When a
man has all his wives securely
shut up in a harem he can : J see
that they do not ruin him with
dry goods ' bills, but this arbi
trary method of suppressing social aspira
tions has not yet been found practicable in
Utah. Whether Bishop Sharp and his
polygamous friends realize it or not, how
ever, the peculiar institution is threatened
more seriously by the change in the dis
position of the women to which he refers,
than by any laws Congress can enact.
Polygamy is possible as the rule of a com-'
munity only so long as the women are will
ing or can be made to support themselves.
In the early days of Mormonism this was
found possible. When a man took a second
wife he was able to reckon with certainty
upon her contributions to the common
family resources, and thus every new wife
helped to prepare the way for fresh ones.
So long as all the marriageable girls were
industrious and submissive this plan
worked admirably for the men. They
were enabled to lift themselves into inde
pendence and even comparative wealth,
by frequent marriages. The effect of these
marriages was almost precisely the same as
that of purchasing slaves, the main dif
ference being that the Mormon husbands
were not called upon to pay anything for
their serfs. While Utah was isolated
there was little difficulty in maintaining
discipline among the women. When
they became discontented they were ter
rorized. If they rebelled they were beaten
into subjection. And if any of them tried
to escape the Danites were at hand to es
cort them into another world. The life of
the woman was placed in the hands of the
man, moreover, and thus for many years
the system was fortified and protected.
But with the completion of ; railroad com
munication a great change occurred. The
influx of Gentiles which then followed
brought with it the seeds of certain revo
lution. Polygamy never can bear close
comparison with monogamy, and this close
comparison . was henceforth unavoidable.
The women who were so blessed as to own
a whole husband were eyesores to the
poor plural wives, and the discon
tent of the latter grew rapidly.
The old discipline could not be applied,
because there were too many hostile
eyes upon the doings of the church.
Then, too, the insidious influence of
Fashion began to be felt. .The Mormon
women who had been satisfied in the old
times with a poke bonnet and two calico
gowns a year were humiliated and ex
asperated by the elegant toilets -of
their inonogamic friends and acquaint
ances. Of couise the agitation which
resulted mada itself felt throughout
Salt Like City. The Mormon elders and
pillars of the church became ' balder than
ever, and the domestic affairs of the most
married grew so complicated that the
moat rapid system of "boarding around"
failed to secure even temporary relief to the
distracted heads of households. Bishop
Sharp puts the case mildly when he says
that the present decline of polygamy is
mainly due "to the fact that the Mormon
"girls aro devotees to style and fashion
"as much as New York girls, and
"young men find it somewhat
" harder to support mire than one family
" than their fathers and grandfathers did."
In this confession is embodied the doom of
polygamy in Utah. For it is a well-known
fact that of late years complaints have been
rife of the increasing tendency to celibacy
among young men in monogamous commu
nities. They have shrunk appalled from
the dreadful cost of keeping even one girl
in the married state, If this be true of
monogamous society, - how much more
forcibly must it apply . to polygamous soci
ety. The Mormon youth is aware that
he cannot comfort himself with the reflec
tion that he will have only one wife to
support, nor can he solace himself as of old
with the belief that if he takes more than
one they will support themselves and him.
On the contrary, he knows too well that
every fresh wife means an access of
dry goods terrors, and that there can be
no peace in the family circle so long as all
the devotees of fashion it embraces
are not equally well ' equipped. Against
these new conditions . the . Church will
strive in vain. Fashion has done for pub
lic morals what law and force have sig
nally failed to do. It is only a question
of time for polygamy to become impossible
save to the ' few wealthy elders," and when
the Mormon masses perceive this to be the
case they will be snro to rebel against so
aristocratic and exclusive a custom, and
will compel its abandonment. If Congress
wishes to hasten' the end it should subsi
dize a score or so of modistes and milliners
in Salt Lake City, and supply them
with all the newest Paris inventions.
Nothing could withstand so insidious a
mode of attack.
'■.' It is stated yiat the ' Czar's new yacht,
the Livadia," promises to effect an astonish
ing revolution in naval architecture,
though it may be aa well to suggest the
advisability of taking all such statements
with considerable - mental • reservation."
___■ vessel is built upon entirely new prin
ciples. , Instead of being long, narrow, and
deep, she is short, broad,; and 1 * shallow.
Her beam is about thirds of her length
over all, her bottom is flat,' and she draws
only seven :__ feet . of water. It was
predicted by the Clyde builders who con
structed : her that v she would make '. no'
better ,'. time -. than ; a washing tub, and
that in a gale of wind and a heavy seaway
she would be unmanageable and unsafe. But
it is alleged that in J going down the Clyde
. she made eighteen knots an hour, and that
1 having encountered ', a severe f gale" in the
Bay of Biscay sho behaved ; more steadily
than the most ; approved: modern tea ncr
or man-of-war on the ; old model. In fact
so many wonderful things are. being said
about l her'" that 'it is T difficult to believe
there ; is not a " hoax somewhere. , ,'J If
she is the success she .is *, said ;i to
be, it is 1 . very ,j certain that ,'y she
will cause a revolution in ship-building,
because a vessel on such a model is cer
tainly much more _ convenient ' for commer
cial purposes " than any other. ■ ■ A ' broad,
short ship, with a flat bottom, would carry
very much more : freight than the sharpest
clipper that ever sailed, and . if such a ves
sel is also steadier and capable of higher
speed, there is every reason that can be
advanced ' for ; adopting ; the washing-tub
model to the exclusion of more graceful ones
altogether. .... The ';. Livadia is not r quite
the first experiment Yin this direction,
for " Admiral : Popoff ,\ of • the Russian
navy J devised *a * circular ironclad on
much ■. the f same model. - This .circular
ironclad, -. however, has been J declared * a
conspicuous ; failure, and *• certainly .. it
achieved no reputation in J the war ; with
Turkey. 3 But the Livadia is said to be a
great success, and if this is so it will have
to be realized that all the naval architects,
with all their science, have hitherto been
working in the wrong direction, and that
the ship df the - future .is to resemble a
washing-bowl or a soup-tureen rather than
anything more graceful. ; v
THE INDIAN CENSUS
We are not surprised that the attempt
of General Walker to take the census of
the wild Indian tribes should have proved
a failure. An investigation of Indian hab
its and superstitions would have convinced
the Superintendent of the Census that such
a scheme was impracticable. The Indians
are extremely sensitive in regard to all in
quiries regarding their families, I and in
many tribes ;it is held to be the gravest
impropriety to make direct reference to
certain relationship?. They have also pe
culiar ideas in regard to the use of names.
In most tribes of American Indians every
man has two names ; one by which .he is
commonly known, and which is a kind of
nick-name, and a second which is alto
gether private, and in a great manner
sacred. This second is the real name, and
it is considered almost an outrage to ad
dress : the person by it. Most wild
Indians also entertain superstitious objec
tions to giving any statistics about them
selves or their families. They think that
such revelations invite misfortune, and in
this they are at ' one with many ignorant
people belonging to what are called civil
ized nations. In England and Ireland, and
even in some parts of this country, much
trouble has always been experienced by the
census enumerators because of these su
perstitions, and not infrequently they have
been subjected to ill treatment by the en
raged barbarians to whom their questions
were put. The Indians are much more
suspicious than even the least intelligent
among the peoples named above, and
therefore it was certain that any attempt
to obtain a census of them must prove
J "*'-!.-.-*_- - — - — ■ — • .
Is it not almost time that the Washing-,
ton reporters and correspondents ceased
inventing : Cabinet rumors?. The intima
tion that Geneial Garfield distinctly refuses
to consider the matter before February ap
pears to offer a favorable point of depart
ure in this respect. There have now beeu
telegraphed Eeveral reams of speculations,
all of which have been contradicted within
a few hours of their transmission, and at
the end of this diversion there does not re
main a single item of what has thus cum
bered the columns of the press during the
past month. It is evident that the Presi
dent-elect does not intend to sty anything
on the subject until he is ready, and there
fore the zeal and industry of the corre
spondents had better be expended upon
something more hopeful and profitable.

CANVASS OF THE VOTE.
The official canvass of the electoral vote
and the vote for. Congressmen was made by
Secretary . of ; State Burns yesterday.' J '? For
the t Republicans S there attended W. W.
Morrow and J. Stepacher, and for the Demo
crats E. W. Maslin and William Broderbk.
Had Mr. Burns done as was done elsewhere,
the vote of California would have been given
to General Garfield by a good \ plurality.
The returns of Mendocino, Lassen and Siski
you came up without > being attested - by the
seal of the Supervisors, as by law required,
and were, to all intents and purposes, blank
papers, bearing no sign :of official , identity.
Had the j Secretary not opened them as re
ceived, and had he held them sealed till yes
terday,' as he had the right to do under the
law, the returns of the counties ' named must
have been rejected. But as the returns came
in the Secretary opened them, and, discover
ing the fatal blunder named, he telegraphed
to the County Clerks of those counties, thus
enabling them to file proper returns within
time,: and by that means the Democratic
Electors' plurality was saved,
J I Mr. Edgerton received the highest vote for
any Republican Elector— 80,348— and Mr.
Del Valle the highest for any Democratic
Elector— Taking one from the other
and Hancock's plurality is found to be 94,
not G4 as insisted by some.
.Another calculation employed by some is
to gain an average of each side, and ascertain
the difference, as the aggregate of the Repub
lican Electors' votes is 481,638, and the aver
age is 80,273. Aggregate Democratic vote,
482,014 ; average, 80,335s ; difference, an im
possible C2jj votes. -.. It is beyond dispute that
94 is the correct plurality of the Democracy.

; Burning Up Evidence. Yesterday fore
noon during the session of the ' Police Court
the smoke and smell of burning woolen filled
the Court-room, which for a time remained a
perplexing mystery. Everybody in the
room thought their clothes were on fire. The
Judge reluctantly joined in the surmise that
probably he, too, was being consumed. - He
vacated hi* official chair, took off his coat
and examined it, and everybody waited to
see whether it was "the Court" that was
on fire. ■ Finally he came to the conclusion
that he was not the one that was getting
scorched, and put. on his coat. Then at
torneys and police officers and spectators
took their turn at pulling off their coats,
and examining the back of them, only
to be disappointed in not finding an expla
nation. It was probably a little the most
ridiculous looking crowd during this stripping
and self-examination that ever occurred. in a
Court-room, and if a person ould have seen
it without knowine* the causa for the pro
ceedings, he would no doubt have concluded
that the whole audience, from Judge down,
were under charge of having stolen some
thing and were peeling off to show that they
were , not the "guilty party. • It's a strange
thing that a man never looks anywhere only
at bis coat-tail when he smells fire, and in a
Court of justice, when the search is earnestly
engaged iv by Court, attorneys and audience
generally, it makes the : peculiarly graceful
and artistic scene highly interesting. After
the full effect of such \a , search had been
endured ' in ' this cms until the ' suspense
was painful, Officer Carroll ascertained that
the smoke came ' from a cell underneath the
Court-room, which was occupied by Charles
Small, arrested for larceny, - and . who was
simply burning up his clothes so that they
might not be used as conclusive evidence of
his robbery of the store from which they had
been stolen. When the cause of the burning
odor became known in the Court-room, every
one quietly crawled into his coat and locked
about with an unconscious air to see if any
body had noticed that he had been engaged
in the same performance as all thereat. The
burning operations came near, cot* being so
amusing to -Small, i for the smudge in his
close cell from the I burning cloth almost
smothered him. His J vest was almost con
ruined, and other parts of his clothing were
badly burned. They were put out as soon as
the fre was discovered, and will be retained
to ascertain from whence they were stolen.

MADAME RACHEL, THE "ENAMELER."
A report comes by cable of the death in
prison at London of the celebrated Mme.
Rachel, the so-called female beautifier, or
enameler. Mme. Rachel, whose real name
was Levi, or Levison, '. used to carry on
business as a perfumer in the neighborhood
of Burlington Gardens. She advertised a
peculiar treatment warranted to make the
patient beautiful forever, and a large num
ber, of ladies whose personal attractions
were fading availed themselves of her skill,
Her process was to give one or two washes
to her patient, which brought out frightful
eruptions on the skin, then to decline to
proceed further until . a bargain was
made and • the - money paid, terri
fying her patient at the same . time
by assuring her that if J the process
ceased at the particular stage to which it
had been carried she would not be beauti
ful but hideous for . the remainder of her
existence. Against one of them, the wife
of an Admiral in the navy, Rachel brought
an action for breach of contract, claiming
£1,000 as the price of "restoration." The
jury, however, gave a verdict against her,
and her ill-success in this lawsuit proba
bly was the cause of the famous trial at the
Old Bailey in 186S, when Mme. Richael ap
peared in the dock at the suit of Mrs. Bor
rodaile, one of her dupes, on a charge
of obtaining money under false pretenses.
Mrs. Borrodaile was evidently a , woman
of weak intellect' and. undoubtedly of ad
vanced' years, * but on the strength of a
promise from Mme. Rachel that the come
liness of youth should be restored to her
and that she should marry - Lord Rane
lagh, she parted with over £3,000 to the
importer, fy A V servant ' represented, '■* Lord .
Rantlagh at several interviews and the
lady was delighted, . but her supplies of
money gave out and Mme. Rachel had the
hardihood to have her arrested for a breach
of contract. This led to a revelation of all j
the proceedings, and after a short trial |
•Mine. Rachel was sentenced to five years' !
imprisonment.* She could net have been
liberated more than a few months when
■he had won back many of her old custom
ers, and for some years continued driving a
profitable , trade. -On February 23, 1878,
she was ' f \ again y: committed -; for trial
on .. the : charge ;of - J obtaining £200
by . ■* ■": false * pretenses - from •• Mrs. C.
Pearse, v who had been "• induced to leave
all her jewels in the impostor's hands in
consideration *" of J being • rendered forever
beautiful. Mrs. ; Pearse J was a ? married
woman, about 24 years old/ and a daughter
of the i celebrated tenor,'; Mario, and the •
wife ; of ';, a ; stock-broker, _* She i was ' put
through a coir ; of washes, lotions and
baths, represented by Rachel to ' be enor
mously expensive, immediately after which
the usual rash broke . out .on her face and !
completely disfigured* her. In this condi
tion | Rachel demanded more money, and !
threatened her if - it . were not forthcoming .
that she would discontinue the treatment, :
and thus the patient would be I hideous for
life. Terrified by these threats,' Mrs. Pearse j
confessed all to her husband. Rachel; was
brought J to J trial, ; found J guilty, and con
demned to penal Servitude for, five i years,
which she had not yet served out when she
was overtaken by death. " ' -*_>*■

contestants hit upon a novel and effective
means of ruining the other's business. :He
sunk a shaft so as to admit a large stream
into the cave at. about the center, and, as
there was an incline. in a favorable direc
tion, the water poured out at the enemy's
portal, while his own was unobstructed.
The matter is to be made the subject of a
lawsuit. ' . • .
