At last decisive steps hare been taken by
tlie officer representing the government here,
toward the punishment of ex-Collector Scer,
for the gigantic peculation committed by
him during bin incumbency of office. It in
only remarkable that the day of reckoning
could be postponed by any management how
ever bold or adroit, no long as it lias. Such
wliolesale robbery of the people' hard
earned money, it seems should have been
discovered at once and the delinquent
proniitly and adequately punished. Sym
pathy in such cases, .which extends to the
protection of the criminal, the glossing over
or covering up of his malfeasance, is certain
ly of questionable quality. We profoundly
regret that John Speer was so weak as to
have yielded to temptation in the misappro
priation of the public monies entrusted by
the government to his guardianship, anil we
deeply sympathise with his family, now un
der the shadow of the unpleasant event. Yet
we do not know any reason for excepting
Mr. Spccr from condign punishment, lie

It certainly docs not ameliorate his case to urge
that he was no business man, and was liable

should have known his unfitness in that regard
nore surely than himself, for the great re
sjionsibility he was taking upon himself.
First of all, he is accountable to the govern
ment for the money mining. And yet none
doubt the general statement that John Sjx.tr

One fraction was following the lead of their
fixed and irrational prejudices and animosi
ties, and the other, the light of the larger
and more liberal spirit of the nation, the
interests and destinies of whose individuals
are the same.
It now looks as though the early and im
letuous charge of the New York Tribune
brigade into the cimp of B, Grata Brown
was not without good advice. Indeed, the
St. Louis Democrat, fighting very shy, puts

tions that have interested the people of this
nation for the last ten years. But if he and
his friends have intrigued to settle that ques
tion in Missouri without discussion, in his
election as Governor of the State, we have
no hesitation in recording our wish that he
should not succeed.

The Democratic party seem to have gen
erally settled down upon the policy of taxing
the United States bonds. That is the logical
progress backwards from the opposition to
the war for the Union, and for the preserva
tion of our institutions of liberty, which the
loyal people encountered from tliat party
during their fearful strife with the rebels.
The bonds represent the debt incurred in
saving the nation from the bloody onslaughts
of the Democrats of the slave States. The
struggle was fearfuL The very life of the
nation was imperiled. Money is almost the
bone and sinew of war. Men and cannons
avail nothing without a well supplied com
missariat. In the life and death struggle of
the Republic, money was needed. It could
be had upon the terms proposed by the Gov
ernmentno otherwise. Those terms were,
that the persons who would give the money
seeded by the Government to protect its life,
for its promises to pay, those "promises to
pay" should beexempt from national and
state taxation. This is the simple statement
of the facts. How the Democracy, Bourbon
like, propose to continue their opposition to
the war for the Union, by reeoauaeading
the people to make rascals of themselves by
repudiating a most solemn contract. Very

The following letter from Chief-Justice
Chase has already attained such publicity that
I am fully warranted in transmitting k to
your for publication. At the same time, it
is proper that I should advise you of nyun
certaiaty as to whether the persons who have
already given it out for publication elsewhere
had received the proper authority of the
writer for the use of a private letter:
To the Hon. T. W. Conway.
My Deab Sib: I have received your kind
letters, and am ranch obliged for the infor
mation they convey. 1 am particularly
touched by the proofs they afford of the at
tachments and confidence of the colored peo
ple. I have always said that to possess the
affection and true respect of the poor and
oppressed k a worthier object of ambition
than any official position, even the highest.
In that ambition I am glad to know I am
not likely to be disappointed. I mar be
mistaken, but I really believe that I nave
been credited with more ambition for place
than I feel. Not that I possess any uncom
mon indifference to the .gratification derived
from distinction, but, to me, great place
has always seemed chiefly valuable as great
opportunity for useful service.
No one can foraee the future. Congress
has adjourned, and the members have gone
home to confer with their constituents.
When they return, I presume they will take
hold of their work vigorously. Opinions
differ as to what is best to be done. On one
(Kiint there is little real division. AH seem
agreed that the Reconstruction policy of Con
gress must be ardently pursued, and that the
earliest possible restoration of the Southern
States to their old relations, upon the bask
of universal snffrage and equal rights, is
most desirable. I feel more anxiety on this
point than any other, because, this point once
secured, all other points may be reckoned as
secured. The rights of labor, and the inter
est of labor, are at the basis of all sound
olicy, and nothing is so important to theirs
as the right to vote for the laborer.
Sincerely yours, S. P. Ciiabk-
1. S. I liave never advocated universal
suffrage and immediate amnesty to all. I.
have said that universal suffrage would recon-"
cile comprehensive lenity with tranquility
and prosjierity. I would have nomoredisr
fransliisement after the complete establish
ment of universal suffrage than is absolutely
necessary to secure the new order of things,
and the new State constitutions against over
throw. iiiose lately in rebellion have no
more right to destroy the country by ballots
than by bullets.
As to the trial of Jefferson Davis, the
amount and kind of misrepresentation k as
tonishing. The facts are simple. I neither
seek nor shun the responsibility of trying'
anybody. (.My purpose is to do my duty as
a Judge, honestly and faithfully, turninz
neither to the right nor the left). While
military authority was supreme in the South,
as an incident of the war, and anybody could
be tried by military cammission, no Justice
of the Supreme Court could properly hold a
Court there. This state of things lasted from
before the surrender of Lee. in April. 1865.
till the final suppression of the rebellion
was proclaimed, in 18GC. Meantime, in
July, 1806, an act of Congress, by changing
the Circuits, had deprived the Justices of the
Supreme Court of jurisdiction in the South
ern States, and jurisdiction was not restored
until March, 1867, when Congress passed
the necessary act. Of course, from July,
1866, to March, 1867, neither the Chief
Justice, nor any other Justice, could
try anybody in Virginia. Any edi
tor of any newspaper would have as
much right. At the time the act of March,
1867, was jiassed, the Supreme Court was
sitting in Washington, and the Chief Justice
was bound to be there, but he wrote to the
District Judge at Richmond, Va., that be
would come down and join him in holding
ibe Court, as sn as the Supreme Court ad
journed in May. Jefferson Davis, however,
was brought before the District Judge and
bailed in May, before the Supreme Court ad
journed. This seems to have been done by
common consent, and it was done without
any conference with the Chief Justice, and
was a matter over which he had no control.
The counsel on both sides were informed by
the District Judge that the Chief Justice
would come in a few days and if a trial had
been desired on cither side, it could have
lieen then had in that very month of May.
In October, 1807, an adjourned term having
been apiiointcd to be held'at Richmond on
thel.'fth of November, the Chief Justice
caused the parties to be notified that he
would attend at the time, iu order
that th'; trial might bike place, if parties
were willing. lie tlid accordingly attend,
Isit the parties were not ready. This was in
November, 1S67. Since then the Chief Jus
tice has lieen obliged to attend the Supreme
Court at Washington. One thing is certain,
there lias been no term at itichmond since
the capitulation of Lee, which the Chief
Justice could have attended, at which he has
not attended; and another thing is clear,
that the trial of Jefferson Davis might at
any time have taken place, that is, since his
capture in May, 18(, either by military
commission, when military commissions were
Iieing helil for the trial of offenders under
the authority of the President, or by a court
held by the District Judge. The Chief Jus
tice, therefore, is in no sense or in the least
degree responsible for the delay which has
taken place. Until last May lie could not
try him, and since then he has always been
ready. b. 1'. Chase.
Washington, Jan. 1, 1808.
Wc publish the above letter, which pur
ports to have been writtten by Judge Chase
in 1S6S. Wc have great respect for Mr.
Greeley. In the main wc lielieve he means
to do right. But in this matter of fixing up
Judge Chase's record since he left the United
States Treasury Office, it is quite as well that
he and Whitelaw Reid should know that
the people read the .newspapers, and that
they store away the prominent facts con
nected with the current history of such men
as Chase. While we have no feeling to
ward Jeff Davis that would encourage the
least desire to see him more seriously or
summarily punished than he has been for
his terrible crime, yct'wc arc not unmindful
of the improper methods employed by Mr.
Greeley and those he could influence to
shield the traitor from proper punishment.
They should not now, when there is no
great need, unless it be true that Mr. Chase
has been wretchedly maligned by the reports
as to the condition of his health, indulge
themselves in the labor of hunting up or
writing up old letters to rescue his character
from the common verdict of the people that

party he had helped build up, and a man
whose ambition for office was stronger than
his anchorage to truth and principle.

the Clarke faction of the Bepanucan party
of Kansas, after all the elaborate aad cann
ing arrangements of the well alinafd ma
chinery to" condnae k in power, k in this,
that k dearly defines the weight aad over
whelming power of the moral element apoa
which the organisation k Jbaaded. We
have alwaya maintained that the SepaUkaa
party was made up of the men of thk aatioa
who thought earnestly, and who pursaed
their convictions conscientiously. It knot
a nartv onranized with the narrow view of
achieving something for strictly party ends.
So those leaders, or7 prominent characters in
it, who attempt to .prevent ka high mission,
will, sooner or later) go down before the out
raged moral sentiment of the organisation.
There are many reasons why bad men
have directed the 'forces of thk great party
in Kansas, and through its agency kept
themselves in places of trust and power,
heretofore. The State was yoang. It was
filling up with people whose central purpose
was to get homes aad make their way in life.
Society was necessarily in a crude state.
The mental and moral forces had not yet
fused, giving a sum of controlling character.
The war wrought confusion, and by its tre
mendous multiplication of Federal patron
age, opened the way for those active, strong,
unscrupulous men, who have so long deter
mined the destinies of the party here, to
continue themselves in power through the
corrupt-' use of their influence in
the' distribution of offices and
Jederal and army contracts, the war is
overhand its 'results, as indicated, nearly
eradicated. The people, while working with
their hands and their heads to build up a
grand commonwealth in a material way, are
also aggregating their thoughts upon the
larger questions that affect tlie life of the na
tion, that have to do with its rightful govern
ment) and its growth in a knowledge and
appreciation of human rights in their appli
cation to government. As we have indicated,
there is already a period to the career of the
gaming, shystcring, unscrupulous politicians
in the Republican ranks in Kansas. Such
is the true definition of the action of the late
State Convention at Topeka. And we have
presented the case, imperfectly as must needs
be the case in a newspaper article, with a
view of inculcating a lesson. And now wc
are addressing ourselves directly to the am
bitious gentlemen, who are seeking to serve
the people in the high places of the State
and nation. The inrty is chrystalizing in
Kansas. It is hardening around the neuclea
of truth, morality, right and virtue.

Leaving Burlington wc travelled about fif
teen miles up into the mountains and caruied,
passing near the mouth of the canon, a fine
grist mill and several fine farms. We made
a luxurious meal of ham, squirrel, pickles,
peaches and cream, bread and butter, and
watermelons, wasiieu uown with copious
draughts ol coitee ana ice-coia water from
the stream naar by.
In all our travels thus far wc had seen no
game larger than squirrel, though we found
signs of the presence of elk, goats, bear and
deer. The mountains are well named Rocky
Mountain?, for rocks are tinder foot, on both
sides, and seem to be ready to drop
out from cliffs above. With the excep
tion of a few poplars and scrubby bushes,
the cedar, pine and spruce have undisputed
sway. They grow everv place, from the
deepest valley to the highest. crag, some
times getting a start on the top of a rock,
creeping along its crevices, and finally
splitting it into fragments.
From Burlington the view of Long's Peak
and part of the Snowy Range, over 50 miles
distant, was very fine, but as wc go into the
mountains, though surrounded bv the wild
est scenery continually, the distant views
are hidden from us. But wherever yon
are, mountain gorges, canons and pine for
ests, in all their magnificence, are in sight.
Thk was the 'case where we camped. Wc
had steep, pine dad mountains on each side,
a roaring mountain stream below and a
rough road ahead.
Ah afternoon of hard travel brought us
within ten miles of Estes's Park, the scenery
becoming wilder and grander all the while.
At dark we camped near two old hunters
who were bound to Estes's Park for a winter
hunt They had had the misfortune to
break down their wagon, but laughed at
their accident and were packing it through.
We got over the rough road with but a few
wagon bows broken, and were able to resume
our journey next morning, arriving at the
edge of Estes's Park about noon without
special incident or accident. Our experience
in the Park we will give in a future letter.

Paris, Aug. 31. "The cry is, still they
come." Provisions of all kinds are already
reaching famine prices. In three days butter
has jumped up per pound from $1.50 to $3;
salt from two sous and a half er iound to
six; potatoes from a franc and a half the
measure called a ftowscau aliout ten pounds
weight to three francs. No kind of meat
can be obtained for leas than twcnt-six sous
a pound, and this only for the most inferior
ticces. If one desires to indulge in what is
ere styled a rutmel:, " three francs a pound,
if von please, sir." Bacon for breakfast, same
price. In fact, if matters go on at this rate,
there will soon be scarcely an alternative left
hunger than to tighten one's waist-belt.
The Parisians are, no doubt, excellent patri
ots. They intend to die upon the ramparts,
and, in case of need, many will, no doubt,
in defending them. But they are equally
shrewd shopkeepers and traders, and know
how to improve an exceptional opportunity.
The Minister of the Interior gave the im-
pulc to his notification to the inhabitants to
lay in their stores, but here the Parisian
shopkeeper steps in, and refuses to supply
customers with more than a definite quan
tity of goods, fixed by himself, so that the
customer k compelled to purchase his stock
by installments. These are the small facts
which are bringing home to us the greater
one, that the enemy is really at the gate.
The preparations for receiving the wounded
arc upon the vastest scale. Colleges, ly
ccums, school, private mansions, religious or
conventual establishments are being converted
into hospitals, and by a late administrative
decision the palaces ol Versailles, inanon,
Saint Cloud, Mcndon, Saint Germain, and
Rambouillct arc to be at once arranged for
the panic sad use. All classes arc emulating
the example of benevolence in thk direction.
Frum'numberlcss windows in all quarters of
Paris depends the white flag with the Red
Cross the symbol of the International So
ciety for. the succor of the wounded. The
rich place their country scats at the disposal
of the wounded; the poor who only have a
room to spare give up that. The General
Omnibus Company hands over to the Minis
ter of War several of its dejiots in Paris and
a vast farm of its own at Claye, in the de
partment of Seine and Marne. Thk general
sentiment of benevolence is, after all, quite
natural, but it k pleasant to record. The
sad reflection is that there should be a ne
cessity for its exercise.
.Reference was made in my last to the enor

in the Bok de Boulogne. The poor beasts

the drought iiad left was soon browsed clean,
close to ground; then the green leaves ana

as cow or bull or ox could reach. Such
lowing and bleating and bdlowing were
never heard before in the wood. The
wretched beasts were well nigh' in peril of
starvation, bat the Minister of Commerce
and Agriculture, whose foresight and activi
ty had provided Park with these flocks and
herds, next turned his attention to the means
of preserving them till needed; so he issued
a circular offering immediate employment as

stalled, k interdicted to the public.

What the Keanhlleaa Party haw Dane
1st. Among the first acts of the Republi
can Congress, after some necessary measures
to resist the Democratic rebellion, was the
adoption of the homestead law, under which
the whole mass of the public domain is open
ed to the possession and ownership of the
laboring man, Ufion the condition of settle
ment ana cultivation, ai me nominal pmv
of SIO for a IbU acres.
2d. Provision was made by which this
vast proicrty is largely enhanced in value,
and rendered accessible to men of limited
means, over the lines of the Trans-continental
Railroad the construction of which hail
been delayed under Democratic rule, by the
fear that free labor would kkscs this rich
inheritance, to the exclusion of slave labor.
3d. The whole system of xervilc labor was
abolished by the Republican party, in spite
of the united and persistent opjtoMtion of the
Democracy in Congress and on the kittle
4th. Again, the whole mass of unrequited
lalior was lifted to the dignity of thecountry's
defenders, thereby giving it enlarged oppor
tunities, enabling it to command the atten
tion and the symjathies of the nation, and
rendering its future subjection to bondage ab
5th." This whole class was endowed with
ritixenship and all its rights and advantages
against all of which acts, the Democrats in
Congress and in the States, recorded a united
negative yet it is easy to sec, that each suc
cessive step added immeasurably to the dig
nity and iwwcr of labor.
0th. 1 he whole remaining public lands ot
the South, were reserved from sale, and aji
propriated to the exclusive use of actual set
tlers, by which, the landless laborers of that
section, come to the ownership of more than
45,000,000 acres, sufficient for half a million
of homes of eighty acres each, and by which,
alio, the further progress of land monopoly
in that section is forever stopped.

I Tim two naatkal adventurers, rwho set eat
toeaaatkirbraai AtlaaUaiaaamv. .si-na
ture craft, of less than two tons' burden ar
rived safely at thk port, thk evening having
been ninety-nine bars from Liverpool and
eighty from Queenstown. Their voyage, as
may be supposed, has been attended with
numerous perils, and ns an imstance of
k probably the-moaV remarkable,
ever known, surpassing the famous voyage
of theUed, White aad Btoe, from New
lork to liondon, a few years since.
John Charles Buckler, who conceived
and directed the voyage, k a middle-aged
and intelligent Irishman, belonging in Dub
lin, and the companion who accompanied
him k a middle-aged Austrian, named Nich
olas Primorax both, old followers of the
sea. Mr. Buckley, about six months since,
was, as he terms it, "taken with a whim"
that he would like to distinguish himself by
sailing over here in the smallest possible
craft that ever Crossed the ocean. He accor
dingly purchased a little bark-rigged vessel,
fitted k up for hk purpose, christening her
they City of Ragusa, and with hk compan
ion and a favorite dog, started for America.
In ske the little bark seemed almost too
diminutive for safetv even to cross the Hud
son River durinc a moderate blow. Her
lencth over all k only twenty feet, her
breadth k less than six, she draws only
about two feet of water, she k a fraction less
than two tons7 burden, and spreads between
seventy and eighty yards of canvas. Every
thing about her k of similar liliputian di
mensions. The cabin is almost a farce, as
tverything eke kin point of sire; but with
a vise economising of every inch ol space,
the two plucky mariners managed to get
along, although such a thing as rendering
themselves comfortable was out or the ques
tion. They left Liverpool on Thursday,
June 2, tlie occasion of their departure being
made a grand gala day, and thousands and
thousands Gathered at the wharf to bid them
good-bye, and wish them a God-speed. They
took on board a quantity ot corned neci ami
other preserved meats, 500 pounds of coal,
about eighty gallons of water, and a ton of
ballast. They cleared for New York, but
Captain Buckley changtd his mind after
wards and made for this (tort, taking the
northern course, or substantially the same
course taken by the Cambaia in her race
with the Dauntless.. Ten days was consum
ed in the voyage from Liverpool to Queens
town, and upon artiving at the latter jiort
she put in four days fur reiKiirs, leaving
finally on the morning of ThtuxLiy, June
loth, with the cheers and prayers of thou
sands. There were strong westerly winds
almost from the beginning of the journey to
the cndt and two or three heavy gales. The
most severe of thenr, 'however, was on Sat
urday night last, when the Ragusa was off
George's Banks. Numerous vessels were
wrecked in that vicinity at the time, but this
little fragile craft; with not a plank in her
over half an inch in thickness, danced around
on the mad waves the whole night long,
coming out all right in the morning, with
only the loss of the jib. The first thirty
five days of the voyage, the weather was
uniformly rough, and not for a moment du
ring the whole time did Captain Buckley or
his fellow tar enjoy the luxury of a Mitch
of dry clothing. Tlie water not only poured
in iqion them unmercifully over the deck,
but the hark commenced leaking badly, and
one man had to be constantly working the
little hand piiiiqis, nilh which they were
fortunately provided. With little or no
sleep, for days and nights in Micevion, the
adventurers became exhausted and weary,
and with visions of a watery grave before
them, they now began to r'pent of their mii
gular undertaking. A fire Kindled in the
stove, was speedily quenched by the dashing
sea, and for three weeks or more, they had
to Miliri.-t on raw meat and hard bread.
Their bc-t day's run, however, was under
theM! trying circiim-tance, when they made
lftJ miles. Their slowrert d iv's run, eleven
miles: but the average xpevd of the entire
voyage, was alxiiit four knot-. ier hour.
When, at length there came an interruption
of a few d.iy' fine wc-ither, and the exhaust
ed men were alout to indulge in the rarity
of a cooked meal, they dLicovcrcd-lhat their
kindling wood had lieen rahcd away. In
vain, they tried to kindle a coal tin- with the
few appliances they bad at hand, anil finally
gave it up in dcair. During this melaii
cholly frame of mind, their i-pirils brighten
ed one day, by the .ight of a lloating barrel,
and when they picked it up it was found to
contain alxmt'a half dozen gallons of tar,
an article never more timely found in the
hour of it greater need, it not only i-ervcd
them foi kindling fuel, hut :ts ah-o found
iL-eful for caulking puqmocs, and the leak
ing craft was very soon rcp-iired. When in
the neighborhood of Cape Clear, a couple of
mammoth whales paid the voyagers a vMt,
one of thcui coming up m utiple:tsiutly
near, that Capt. Buckley reached over and
placed bis hand on the intruder's luck.
They followed along some five or ten min
utes" and then dLipieared in the briny deep
much to the satisfaction of the adventurous
sailors. On the '1th of July they encoun
tered a heavy storm; but iu spite of it. they
commemorated the day, and ns the Captain
cxprcN himself, drank the lualth of
General Grant and all his relatives. They
Knkc various vecls going ami coming, but
only on two occasions did they require any
stores or assistance, although everything
was freely placed at their dL-o-.il by the
mariners who came iu their way.
The iKissage voseLs supplied them with
news from the outside world, and one of the
Ciinird steamers gave the Captain a tile of
the New York llendJ, covering a iicriod of
about fifteen days, and in that journal they
first learned of the war between France and
Prussia, and al.-o of fhe roult of the inter
national vacht race between the Cambria and
Dauntless, an event which Captain Buckley
seemed to take a lively interest in. The fact
tliat the little craft was coming into Boston
was not known until two or three days since
and Collector I!ii-vel then decided to go
down in a government tug and escort her up
the harlxr. She was reortcd from below
in the middle of the afternoon, ami about ti
o'clock the collector and a few meiii!crs of
the press went down to meet her. After
jiasxing the "Bug Light," a little yawl-rigged
concern was dimly viniblcin the distance.

of her time; and Caroline Maria Annnnciado,
the wife of -Mural, who became Queen of
Naples in 1808.
The young widow of Ajacrio had no reason
to dream, in wildest fancy, of tlie splendors
that awaited herself aad family. The latter
were mostly little children; Jerome, the
youngest, an infant in her arms. She was
left with scanty means for their support and
education. To these she devoted all her en
ergies with marvelous success. Strength, we
have observed, was the prominent feature in
her character, ami thk was displayed in the
hour of need. Napoleon once said, "She
had the head of a man on the shoulders of a
woman. Losses, privations, fatigue, had no
effect upon her: she endured all. braved all."
These came at times thick and fast. Joseph,
ever kind and good, helped his mother with
all hk might as he grew towards manhood;
while Napoleon, a rather dull student in out
ward expression, was prepraing, in the mili
tary school of Paris, lor that wonderful ca
reer which enabled him, by imperial decree,
to make sovereigns of his brothers and
sisters, and to confer iqion his mother, at the
age of 50 years, the lofty title of Madame
Mere, equivalent to that of Empress Mother,
with an income of $200,000 a year.

One of the most notable contributions to
the history of the war is published in the
form of a letter addressed by the German
author Strauss to the French author Benan,
both of them working in the same field, and
each well and widely known. The occasion
of the letter to which we refer was a favora
ble opinion expressed by M. Benan of Dr.
Straw's recently published work on Vol
taire. Aiier uncny acanowmiginw ais in
debtedness to his friend aad fellow-aataor,
Dr. Strauss passes to the question of the war,
and gives at length the German view of the
contest, and the view of one who neither is
carried away by the passion of youth nor
has his opinions biassed by having mixed in
the political intrigues of the Prussian capi
tal, but who is known all over the world as
a dear-headed aad pliilosopaical thinker.
We regret that our space wul not admit of

The street of Paris now present a curious
spectable, owing to the immense number of
trucks and wagons laden with flour which
block up all of the narrow ways. Last night
I saw a train of over fifty wagons, each car
rying some thirty barrels of flour, going to
ward the warehouse of the Seventh Arron-
disBemeat. This morning the same train was
there, and I was told that atl night long men
were busy unloading these tracks. Large
loads of hav and straw arc also seen, with
wagon loads of homely country furniture
coming infbr safety, with here and there
flocks and herds of sheep and beeves. On all
sides we have evidences that the provision
ment of Paris is going on at a wonderful
rate. Yesterday the Minister of Commerce
and Agriculture visited the Bob de Bou
logne, wherein one vast park arc shut up
42,000 beeves and more than 150,000 sheep.
It is a curious sight, and attracts a crowd of
visitors. From there M. DuvemoU went to

What wc need now in life, above every
thing else, is Christian men who take the
lead in manly pleasures, and nuike them
honorable and noble. Pleasure is of God.
So is suftering. Joy and sorrow are both of
them born of God. There is a manly way
of enjoying one's self which is not only jicr-.
mi-wank', but mort wholesome; and, in moral
things, m4 beneficial. Let men be free to
take all rational amusement, free to tike joy,
and that abundantly; and yet the moment
pleasure, and its jierniissions, become soiled
or even sullied, let men turn away from
them, and scorn them, and loathe them, so
that the world, looking on them, shall see
tliat they are "men of pleasure," not in the
sci.se that they are men of no conscience,
but in tlie sense that they are men of 'emi
