BROOKLYN, May 1.-While Dr. Tal
mage is able to hold vast audiences
spellbound by his eloquence, whatever
subject he has in ha:d, he is never so
eloquent or so evidently a great orator
as when he preaches Christ as the one
hope for the regeneration of the world.
The fact was proved this morning whenl

By connon p-overb we have cwme
to believe that "there is nothiig iii ia

TIhlere arc some names, for instance,
thlat are repullsive to mry car. Thiose
names are at,tractive to your ear. Whlat
is tire dilference- Why, I hlapp)ened1 to
knlow sonme persons of thrat nuamo whro
were cross or sour or qureer or unsymi
parthetic, and the piersonrs who hrave
hiappeni I to knrow of' that nrame wereC
kind and genrial. Since, thenr, we can
nlot disassociate a name from tire char

thaftt conrsideration makes tire namie of

Oh, beautifuil name, thre r ame of
Jesus, which stands for love, for pa

mity, for everything *!at is grood and
s.torious and tender and sympathetic
anid kind! It is aromatic wit,h all odors,
It Is accordant with all harmonies.
fSometimes when I look at that name of
Jesust Christ it seemrs as if the letters
were made of feanrs, alnd then theOy see nI
to be gleamning crowns. Sometimes
that name sec ms to be twist,cd out, of the
straw on which he lay, and then it,
seems to be built out of the thrones on
times I sound that word Jesus, and I y
hear in It the sob of Gethsemane and v
the groan of Calvary, and then I speak p
his name and it is all a ripple with glad

Take all the glories of bookbiudery o
and put them around the page on which 1:
that name Is printed. On Christmas e
morning wreathe it on the wall. Lot it t

Dlave you ever heard In a Methodist i
church, during a time of revival, a score
of souls come to the altar and cry out 1
for mercy under the power of just two
.bcs of glourious old John Wesiej?
.Jesus, the name high over all,
In heaven, or earth, or sky.
To the repenting soul, to the exhaust
ed invalid. to the Sunday school girl, to
tle sno w white octogenarian it is beautt
ful. The aged man comes in froni a
long walk, and lie tremulously opens
the door of his home, and lie hangs his
hat on the old nail, and lie puts his cane
in the usual place, and he li!s on his
couch, and lie says to his chiilren ail
his grandclidren, "My dears. I am go
ing away from you." And they say.
"Why, where are you going, grand
f-athery" '"Oh,'' lie says, "aim going
to .Jesus;"l and Po the old man faints
away into heaven.
And the little child come ii from play
and she flings herself in your lap, and
she says, "Mamma, I'm so sick, i'. wa
very sick:" -awtVottptft'ner to'bed, and
'the 'fever is worse, and some iidnight,
while you are shaking up the pillow and I
-iving the medicine. she looks ti) uin your
haue and says, "'Mamma, I'm going
away from you.'' You say, "Why,
where are voutgoing, my darling'" And
she says, "I am going to .Jesus.'' And
the red cheek that, you take to be the
imark of [tie fever turns out to be only
tle carnation bloom of heaven.
Oh, was it not beautiful when a little i
child heard that her playmate was dyin.r t
aild she went to tle house, and she i
chambered upon the bed of' her dying
playitate, and she said to the dying
playmate. "Where are you golng to?"
and the dying girl said, "I'm going to
.Jesus.'' Then said tle little girl that
was % ell as she bent over to give the
parting kiss to her dying )pl.tymate,
"Well, then, if' vou are going to Jesus,
give my love to him.'' It is a beauti.ul
naie, whether on the lips of childhood
or on the lips of'the old man. When my
flather was dying thie village ininister
said to him, quoting over his pillow thia
passage, "This is a faithful saying and
wol thy of' all acceptation--that 'hristt
.Jesus camle into the world to save sin
ners, and there lie stopped. Thieni my
fither Iinishmed the quotation by sayinug ,
'"ot whomli I am chiet'.'
But I remark again, in regard to this
iime of' Christ, that it is i mighty name.
lIolhischild is a name mighty inl tle cou
miercial world, Sillinian is a name
imighity in tie scientific world, Irving is
a naimuc mighty in tle literary world.
W asliington Is a name uiighty i the
poliaticl world, Wellington Is a name
mighLty in the military world, but where
ini all the earth is a name so potent to
lift and [thrilf anid arouse anid rally and
biless as thie name ,Jesue~ Why, [lie
soutiil ,l' that one name unhorsed Saul

But 1 remark again, takIng a step for

ChrIst is an enduring name. You get
over the fenice of the graveyard and( you
pull [lie weeds back from the name that
has nearly faded f'rom the tombstone,
and1 you wish that Walter Scott's '"Old

MILLIONS OF SOUTHERN MONEY.

;omne of the linesi,I material ot the
tovelit that can be imaginel is that
)f the U7nited States I reasury," said a
imntlema who had been in that depart
mlit for a quat ter of a century.
'Whee is it?' "Why everywhere.
I'here is a bureau called the division of
L,bamloned lands and property, and
Ila' in itself i. one great romance. Its
itorv is full of marvelous facts.
Why, there are $13,000,000 In its charge
>eloging to people in the South alone.
tI bee, durini and at the close of
lhe war there was valuable property of
II sorts which fell into the hands of
ne army and was turned into the
reasury. Over 612,000,000 charged
,o that bi Ieau is the proceeds of cotton
akeni fron llantatons all over the
outhi and sold. The moory it brought
11 was turiled in ais I have told, the
i1nount being so great, that Mr. Chase,
heii secretary, created a division that
ihoild have speIal charge of all this
;ort of i ii hig.
Why there is one instance it is said
.174,0W0 worth ol cotton was taken
rom a Jar South estate when cotton
as worth about :3500 a btle and sold.
ile persons to whom it, belonged were
it, rebels but loyalists They have no
tea where their coton went. Their
;aes were on the hales and it w,9uld
iot be dilicul t for them to make a se
they knew what to do. But it .1as
>en nearly twenty-eight years since
he inmey ias deposited. I do not
LIuOW whether any of them are now
lying or not, but it is hardly probable
hey wl ever get what is really theirs.
\.11 the testimony relating to the case
s in the possession of the government.
lie agent who took the cotton and the
mie who sold it are both dead and the
m-ners will not be able to make their
ase without soine proof which they
lo not possess.
h-re are other instances similar to
his. In1 1863 we received 6109,000 from
government agent for cotton taken
a a foreigner, supposed to havo been a
Auc,aule tuinner in one of tlhi seaport
owns3 of the far South. Secretary
lae, when lie heard the facts said:
t'he money is only held in trust by the
,overiinent and some day N e shall be
Abiged to account for it, for the
roverimifent nas no right to keep it..
Iilt deiand was never made for it.
It is btelievcd that the owners never
mew just where it went. When the
,*niori army under General Sherman
capied the south Atlantic seabord
owns the Contederatf s used to destroy
ill the cotton, if possible, before they
Itrrendeied. and inillions of dollars
vere buried to keep it from falling
ri to mir hands. Tr wenty-live thousand
>t:i %ei ne debtroyed in Savannah. Ga.,
Aone to keep General Sherman from
3etting it. The owners did not know
'hat was burned and what was saved.
lie way \%e knew it was this: The
mioks were often kuut wit h the cotton,
howing that John .Ioies, for instance,
%ho was a nierchiat, had so many
tindred hales iarked in such a way.
l'he iles not. burned could be easily
dititled by the marks on them. In
triny Iiitances all the books contain
fig flhvownera 1ame1us were forward

A Chicago Horror.
C11CAO0, May 4 -Britiget Walsi,
wife ot Michuel Walsh, a teamiter in
the employ of .1. V. Farwell & Co., was
murdered some time to day and ititL
lated in a fashion suggestive of Jack,
the RLipper. 11er husband when he
returneil f rom work this evening found
her dead body in her bi-11 room with
sixty-liV) gashes upon it varying ia
length from one inch to a foot. Cuts
were upon every part of her body from
the crown of he. head to the soles of
her feet, but were most numerous upon
her breast and lower limbs. A pair of
long-bladed scissors were driven into
the woman's breast, immediately over
the heart, and a broom handle taken
from her kiteken had been driven
through her body lengthwise from ba.
low the throat, mutilating the body in
a most horrible manner. tier clothes
had all been cut from her body and
were thrown upon her remains.
Walsh's nephew, Thomas Walsh, has
been arrested for the crime and has
confessed. Ile says he made an in
proper proposal to his aunt, for which
she slapped his face. Ile drew his
knife and stabbed her, and the sight of
the blood suddenly drove him insane
with the result that he mangled and
tore the poor woman as related above.
Burned by a Woman.
The Bamberg correspondent, of
the Columbia Daily Register under
date of April 25, says: "On Saturday
night last the corn house and other lot
buildings, together with all the corn
and dry food of Dr. D. W. Barton, of
this place, were completely destroyed
by tire. There was no insurance. A
few days ago a negro woman made
threats of an incendiary nature against
Dr. Barton. This, xogether with the
fact that a woman's bonnet was found
near the burning buildings, and also
the remains of the torch with which
the work was done, confirms the belief
of incendiarism and points to the above
mentioned woman as the guilty party.
Nothing but the prompt action of the
citizens and a favorable wind prevented
a spread of the fire.
"On the same night the saw mill and
about fifteen thousand feet of lumber
of Air. Fuller Darnold, of the Fork, in
Orangeburg County, were burned. The
fire, it is thought, was communicated to
the mill and lumber piled on the yard
from a burning slab pile. No insurance.
Loss about $1,100."
