It hardly usiib possible that n man could
cook nnd deliberately steal over two bun
dred and forty thousand dollars and renpe
ileteclion. More than tint 1 and licit the
panic, from whom 11 should have been
stolen, should hate been in entire ignorance
of the theft; that the mill should conic in
and go out (rout among them, d.ty after
day, still handling and controlling more
and more of the same funds; constantly, we
know not but il.tily aililing to his pecula
tions and yet not a breath nf
laemlig to him. Vet such was nnd is the
case of Itodninu, late secretary of the
llrooklyn trust company, and deputy
city treasurer. It was known or ought to
have been known, that he wits engaged In
business operations or speculations Hint ie
quired the use of n larger cash capital than
lie could legitimately command, yet no
suspicions w ere excited. His defalcation
to the trust company may, perhaps, be
satisfactorily explained by bis relation
with and to the defaulting president, but
that was a mere drop in the bucket. Two
hundred nnd eight thousand dollars tllclied
from the city treasury, and not the least
suspicion was entertained that anything
was wrong. When the defalcation was
discovered In the funds of the tnist com
pany, and lie was confessedly one of the
beneficiaries thereof, lie was still allowed
access to the public funds. What a com
mentary does this afford upon the manner
of transacting the linaucinl affairs of the
city; the class of men appointed to places
of responsibility nnd trust, and the char
acter of their subordinates. An eminent
statesman- -as remarkable for his ability as
for his spotless Integrity once said that
ot cry man had his price. The idea that
lie meant to convey was, that the human
heart was so constituted that there were
certain temptations Impossible for It to re
sisl. There Is too much truth In the say
ing, and especially is it forcible nt the
piesent day, when wealth can command
influence, position, power and olllce. What
light, then, has an olllcial icceivliig mid
paying out, monthly, hundreds of thou-
mils of dollais to leave such temptations
in the way of his subordinates V
The pecuniary loss, to be sine, hi this
case, fell upon the principal, and to the
honor of Conrlland A. Sprngue, the city
liciisiucr, be it said that be piontptly saeri
llced eterv dollar of his ptivalc I'm tune
nnd satedthe city harmless from loss, itut
is lie entliely free front moral unlit ? He
knew his subordinates, or lie should not
haw appointed them. Yet his most It list
ed suboidliiate, tho man standing net in
position to hint, his own deputy, Is allowed
Ihe opportunity of stealing two bundled
and eight thousand dollars. Was ever
such moral and mental blindness seen be
fore? In one position of peculiar trust, he
whs discovcied as u defaulter and pecu
lator, yet the thought Is not suggested that,
with greater facilities and fewer guards, he
would tnke advantage of his opportunities.
It seems strange that the mere fact Hint he
was engaged In largo business cnterpiiscs
and speculations as ho must havo been to
have made way with bo largo sums of
money should not havo put tho parties In
terested on the enquiry. It seems still
stranger that a man who could have de
liberately planned the robbery of his em
ployer and patron for he must have
known that ho was primarily liable to the
city and of ample pecuniary responsibility
to cover tho same and, nt the samo time,
whllo pretending to itct for tho trust com
pany, save them from all responsibility,
should not havo displayed such evidences
of moral obliquity as would have aroused
the suspicions of even an obtuse man. It
Is equally strange that such a man could
have originally obtained the appointment
of secretary of a respcctablo trust company,
tho deputy treasurersldp of so largo a city
as Brooklyn, or even a responsible clerk
ship in cither; that having obtained tho
appointments, ho could have obtained good
and sufficient bondsmen rcputablo men

which, together with remarks he made to

Tho capital of our State furnished Fri

which nro Incoming so common in our
land. How often of late tho same story.
with only a few changes of names nnd
places, has come over the xvlres ! A court
ship ; an interruption, a misunderstanding
or n rejection ; next the sudden pistoling
of a terror-struck woman by a moody and
reckless man ; a final shot into the brain or
heart of the murderer nnd suicide, and
one or two blowly bodies, stretched In death,
amid n circle of horror-struck beholders
such Is the tale which comes day after day,
with perhaps the variation that it Is an un
happy marriage Instead of a courtship,
xthlch is ended by the revolver. It is a
class of crimes licyond legislation ; for the
criminal commonly succeeds in taking his
own life, if not another's, and so takes
himself beyond the reach of human tribun
als. How to prevent them Is a problem
which bullies the philanthropist. It is tin
possible in our country to keep deadly
weapons out of the hands of desperate
men, and equally Impossible to prevent
such reckless use ot them, i license is one
w hich can only be Indirectly reached, by
the moral nnd religious agencies, whose

On Sunday morning the Hex. Mr. Ilncn
of New Hampshire preached in Hie Con
L'reL'iitional church. Despite the shower
of rain that was falling at the hour of
opening service the house was very well
The preacher took for the te.xl of bis
discourse the words found In Luke xiv :
"Then said he unto lilm, u lertalu man
made a great supper and bade many :
And sent his servant at supper time to
say to them that were bidden, Come; fin
al! things are now ready."
The following is a brief abstract of the
The feast was provided ; piinccly In de
sign, upon which the skill of many had
been devoted. The supper was given by a
great man as a fit expression of his great
benevolence and generosity ; everything
had been prepared in the most costly man
ner, every luxury had been secured front
near nnd from far xvhlch money could fur
nish, to supply the culinary arts of the
table ; flowers xvere lavished to adorn the
board, lights flashed throughout the room
to set off to good advantage the skill anil
plendor everyxvhere displayed. At length
nil ivns ready, and tho servant was bid to
summon the guests. "Come; for all Is
now ready." The occasion was one foi In
nate In inclination and opportunity, and
the guests xvere expected to respond eager
ly to such a call. Here xvere all the ele
ments of life and good cheer, where men
have always found the true realities of life;
bread for the hungry, xvater for the thirsty,
imnlon for the iriilltv. deliverance for the
captive, light for the blind, life for the
dead. Hero is a similitude of what the
Gospel sets before us if we may interpret
it so. Jesus is proscribing the means oi
grace and the Gospel is set before us as In
this narration of the supper.
We can, in the first place, consider the
Gospel as a feast, when all the elements.
which are the most winning to our thoughts
nnd feelings, are bountifully spread upon
tho board. Grant, if wo must, that this Is
of the earth earthy, but this physical en
joyment may be consldeied us n steppint
stone to other and higher enjoyments an
effective symbol of real and true joy. Such
will the Gospel nppear If seen In the right
sense. XX lienever xve ilium ot it us it nur-
den to be endured as hard service, nnd not
as n joy and privilege, the blindness of our
hearts turn us away front its truest pre
cepts and its highest appreciation.
In the second place xve tuny consider it it
feast that Love provides. Not merely by
some king or ntlllionalio who wi-li to please
the people to somo effect or cater to their
tasto from it purely selfish purpose. This
Is very often a case xvlth men xx hit have no
heart In the doing of good deeds. This is
not so. God provides u feast for us its an
expression of His nature xvhlch is Lute, it
tells us of tliu Father of mercies ; lot e, ill
vino love, Is the fountain head, crowned
xvlth glory. Ho Invites us all lo come and
receive light In Him.
For xvlioiu is this feast ptoxlded? Is It
not for every one of us ? In answer to this
xve must Infer that the glory of God offers
to all tho lieitcflts provided. As we turn to
Ills divine teachings and gifts we see that
what Ho offers Ho offers It to all. it Is not
hedged in but free nnd open to all. Ho who
causes the sun to shine upon all tho earth
xvlll not let His mercy be circumscribed.
His offerings xvlll 1st as xtldo as arc tho
ravages of sin. What docs, God say ? Tho
testimony is final and conclusive, and xthen
lie speaks xvo must listen. Tho words me
marvellous but need not bo quoted.
Wo canuot quote them too otteu however.
"Whosoever xvlll, let him conio and par
tako of tho xvatcrsof llfo freely." So others
of llko character might bo quoted but It Is
needless. Can xvo ever doubt that theso
sayings cmbracu us all ?
Christ died for all. Wo find this In tho
sentenco "Heboid tho Lamb of God that
taketh away tho sins of tho xvorld." The
most guilty and lost of men are saved by
Ills priceless blood. This Is found to atone
for nil. Tho feast Is ample If you xvlll only
return and partake of it. Tttko tills fact
home to your hearts. Tho framo xvork of
duty Is glorified by love. We have set be-
foie us n duty to perform, but by lovo tho
ihe true heart feels no bondage. All arc
bidden, "Come tor nil things are noxv
ready." God bids you coinu xxlth invito.
Hon, xvlth Rupplicatlon and overtures of
grace. It Is not tin. Onvrrnor of the Com
litonweath or the President nf the Itcptibllc
who aks you, but tho King of Kings
who loves you, and It should bo yom
highest exaltation nnd privilege to
respond. He xvlll lift us up out of our slu
and poverty nnd set tu at his right hand lo
share xvlth angels nnd seraphs the joys and
companionship of that xxorldof light. All
may come and be heir xtlth the sons of
God. None are debarred of Christian's
joy. No one Is hindered of pai taking con
secrntlon, God's slnccilly Is undoubted.
Men even me not so ciuel ns lo bid us lo
feast and xthen we lcspond lo lock the
door upon us. If God bids us lo come
their-Win obstacle in the wny that xve
cannot owicome. Yet theie inny bo those
who sny they are blndeicd by a power out
side of themselves that xte canol overcome.
Tho evil heart of unbelief is of nil things
offensive In Hie sight of God. Some say
they cannot teceiw u change of heait.
Hut your own pi nj ers nnd obedience nrc
all that W requited. You need have no
anxiety but that (toil will do what you
euinot do for yourselves-. You have only
to cast yourselves upon Ills mcicy: take
his wind as your guide and shape your
life by Its picecpls. God will take erne of
your heart. The objection may also take
another fnim, regarding the government of
(iod nnd Ills purposes. Some suppose If
he has not determined upon their salvation
that tin re W no iiseof woiklng. The x-alld-lly
of Ihisdoclilne will not stand iirgumenl,

nothing can be accomplished spiritually
moie than in nn earthly sense. If God
pin poses you to make some preparation
mid it W so In the matter of salvation : you
must obey the piei epls nuil commands or
nothing will be neeoinpli-hcd.
This fact W susceptible of illustration.
When Grant xas before ltlclmiond and

eeived tut order to take hW troops to the
Shenandoah Valleys if Sheridan had said
within himself " I understand Ihe right
plans to be adopted In lids campaign, and

he should have been ca-hicicd and hung
