"John Kelly!" Loml rang tbe court-clerk
The spectators craned tbelr necks
For a glimpse of tbe incoming criminal.
While the justice rubbed bis "specs,"
As a small, thin boy to tbe bar was led,
And on tip-toe grasped the rati.
"Are you John Kelley i" the justice said,
With a frown at tbe feature pale.
"Yea, sir," the answering accentajilrike
The air With a' sort of moan ;
"But It's mostly as little Marline-spike
That on shipboard I am known."
"Tbe charge!" "Your honor. It wa drunk

"Come, now, John Kelley, show tilting
For a small boy getting high."
"Please, sir," loiters out Little Marline

And tbe chink of a coin was beard.
And as little Marline-pike steered bis way

THE PHILOSOPHY OF DEATH.
BV THK KKV. ROBERT R. RODGERS.

There are many toplr-t affording greater

bly evade tbe misfortunes so common in tbe
lot of others, we may parry adversity, sue- j
cessfully compete for place and name and
fame; ward off accident and ill-health, and
become aged In tbe comparative enjoyment
of life, but we must all yield to the angel of
death. "It is appointed unto men once to
die." Olbercvents of a painful cbiracter

We know that it must come. Werna) wield"
tbe scepter of empire, or be lowly and un
known. Birth and death are the two'ev cuts
that come to every one. "The solitude of
the grave, its coldness and corruption, make
us pause upon its brink and strive to life
away. Bat there is no hope." Sbakapcare
said of it,
"Thou art he that will not lUtter prince
Tint stoops not to authority, nor give,
A specious name to tyraunv ."
And as ltalelgb said, 'Oh ! eloquent, just
and mighty death ! What none have dared,
tbou hast done ; and whom all the world
bat o flattered, tbou alone bast cast out of
the world and despised; tbou bast drawn
together all the far-fetched greatness, all the
cruelty &nd ambition of man, and covered

But though 'death is Inevitable, still to
dwell upon it with morbid wistrulness. is
most hurtful to our whole nature, mental,
moral and spiritual. The story goes that
"an Indian prince one day ridingin the for
est saw a herd of deer sporting. 'See,' said
be, 'bow happy those browsing elk are !
Wb) should not priests loJged and led com
fortablv in the temple, al-o amuse them

the next day conferred the sovereignty on
him, remarking at the time, "Prince, admin

end or tbat time I shall put thee to death.'
At the end of tbe seventh day tbe king In
quired, -From what eatie bast thou become
so emaciated?' To which be answered,
From the contemplation of death.' The
monarch replied, 'Live, my child, and be
wise. Tbou hast ceased to take recieatlon,
sayingto thyself, In seven days I shall be
put to death. These priests In tbe temple
Incesstntly meditate ou death; bow can
they enter into healthful diversions '" OI
death and Immortality a healthy men when
well employed ought to be incurious. "F ir
higher than the question of our duration Is
the question of our deserving' Anxious
brooding over death Is enervating, depress,
ing and demoralizing. Death after all Is
only an event in the evolution ol our life,
and tbat'we might net dwell upon It to the
loss of our freedom, to tho Injury of our
natural enterprise and plc-isuro, and tbe
healthy exercise of every part of our na
ture, l'rov Idence has carefully concealed
from us the time of its visitation.
Tbe object of religion Is to teacb us bow
to live wisely aud happily, how to bear our
crosses, bow to resist temptation, how to
be good citizens and neighbors, and bow to
fulfill our allotted task; a noble life being
our outv hope of a happy death, Death Is
an end to nothing good, and ir we ccae
rrom labor, toll and care, yet "our works
do follow lis ;" and in the yonder-land, the
deligbt of our lire remains unchanged, and
leads us on and ever on in the "works" ot
love that formed our Ideal and won our as
piration here. Too many are apt to regard
death as an escape from everything needing
self-command, the spirit or the hero, or tbe
patience or tbe saint, and iu moments or
great weakness and depression, perhaps
every nun bai wished himself dead. Hap
pily most of us would rather bear those Ills
we bav e, than fly to others we know not ol,
and fearing to die wc too often unthankful
IT decide to live.. YVc need not Tear to die
when tbe proper time arriv es ; but until it
does come our proper study is how best to
throw ourselres into tbe sublime order or
tbe divine will, and do with knowledge
wbat tho stones do by structure, the birds
by Instinct, and the flowers by species.
As death comes to all it is important to
have a correct Idea or what It is. Under
stood from a material point of view, death
is total and permanent cessation of all the
vital functions. When the heart ceases to
beat, tbe blood to circulate, tbe lungs to
breathe, the nerves to convey sensatlon.the
brain to draw sustenance from food, and
the muscles to exercise power, the soul
withdraws from Its material associate and
the body dies. And speaking generally.
this is all that death is. If we live long
enough, the senses of the body at last be
come "tired to death." Like everything
BBtaral, time wears tbe body completely
out, end death Is the laying aside or a well-
worn Instrument, or of a servant past al
service. It Is purely a physical phenome
non, and we are assured by the most com
petent observers that It Is painless aod like
a pleasant sleep. We have abundant testi
mony from those who have bees rendered
insensible aad apparently dead through ac
cidents, that death .Is analogous to what
"Death's balr-Jjrotaer. sleep."

Bat we no sooner quit the physical facta on
which mortality rest, than we instantly
experience the aenw of insecurity. Mor
tality Is a fact beyond dispute; we all to
some extent mourn by reason or it, tor
"nothing dlei but something mourna;" we
alt hare wondered oyer and questioned its
advent, and have guessed at Its primary
cause, Its mission and its result, Tbe Issue
of our guessing and questioning hare been
strangely different. Death a men hare
made It, is sad In tbe extreme. Its cause is
believed to be a penal calamity, and its
mission Is regarded as harsh and forbidding.
We all need a better faith, more tru't in
God, and a belief that covers with flowers
even the slopes of tbe ralley of the shadow
of death. If we eanuot speak of oven the
worst things to the glory and exultation of
divine love, then our highest wisdom is to
confide in the love tbat we do not under
stand ; and If we lire, live thankfully, and
If we die, still add our testimony to the in
It Is constantly asserted by theologians
tbat death Ii the result or tbe tail, that it is
essentially evil, tiat it Is a part of tbe di
vine curse upon mankind for Adam's diso
bedience, and tbat man was originally de
signed not to die but to be immortal on
tbe eartb. The cause or death is therefore
regarded wltb a sense or shame and guilt.
We have come to think that mortality Is
cruel, that there Is no Fatherly love In it,
and no swiet domestic affection, as there
was In our birth. Nor are these views with
out a show of presumptive evideure. Dis
missing beliefs with a denial or a sneer nei
ther changes nor removes them. Belief is
quite legitimate until it Is shown to be
wrong. As natural men we always meas
ure the love in our visitation and experi
ences by the way tbey affect us. If any
thing occurs that gives us pain, that thwarts
our wishes, that opposes our ardent desires,
orcbecks tbe gratifications of our affections,
we of necessity regard It with disfavor, and
we speak of It tn terms corresponding to
our wishes. We accordingly dread death
as a physical evil, becane It is too often tbe
consummation ot disease, ami the tinal re
sult of prolonged suffering. In other rases
tbe order of nature is reversed by it, and
"pirents are called up to bury their chil
dren. Instead of tbe children tbe parents ;"
as Burke says, "putting posterity in tbe
place of ancestors." And speaking of It
from tbe estimate or offended natural affec
tion, it U matter or no surprise tbat we re
gard death as a divine scourge, and an ele
ment of disorder.
But It is never wise to regard any thing
from the mere outward appearance. Tbe
command is, judge righteous judgment.
Tbe seuses deceive us on every hand, and
even where tbey have been directed by tbe
cautious guidance of a trained intellect,
history lives to show us that to err Is hit
Man. The goodness of tbe Lord is not to,
bo discredited because the whole of life is
not agreeable to our withes. There would
indeej be some strange events if every one
had what be wanted ; and there would be
some equally strange turns or fortune could
every prayer be answered. What is best is
not alw ays the most agreeable. Providence
rules the world lor the highest good of all,
which is always a spiritual good. The nat
ural side of life, being tbe smaller, is often
sacrificed to tbe spiritual side; the less good
to tbe greater. Viewing life on the natu
ral side only, tbe senses seethe worst phase
or everything, never the bct. This is the
rase with death. To see the civ Ine good
ness in death, as In thunder storms, or the
overthrow ;of empires, we must look far
beyond the natural event, as It comes tin
welcomed to our homes.
Should it be insisted tbat death came
through the sin of Adam, it may be equally
aulrmci' that Christ came lo abolish the
death tbat Adam Introduced. The Lord's
work of restoration was co-equal and CO'
extensile with tbe doings of evil. And
"as in Adam all die, so In Christ shall all be
made alive.'' What Adam introduced tbe
Lord dismissed. The Lord will nev er abol
ish natural dissolution, but "all tbe death
that Adam brought in, Christ will thrust
out." As, however, tbe Lord does not pro
pose to abolish natural death, we mi.jt run
elude that natural death was no: a penal
calamity resulting from human disobedi
ence. In confirmation of this conclusion t
well ml that natural death occurred ages
before inan'a creation. We have only to
turn to those sermons in stones which arc
provided in every locality, to discover that
the whole earth is a colossal tomb. The

In size all the progeny ol our limes were
once masters or the earth. There was a
period when not one of them was In tbe
world; theu the time came when there
were millions, and again the time came
when tbe whole race bad become extinct.
And what is true or the saurian. Is true ol
the whole animal creation, or tbe individu
al, of tbe species, or the race. Death ex
isted long prior toman; it is perfectly nat
uril; it is a beneficent ordinance of God,
and merely a crisis In the growth and devel
opment or bis children. As Mrs. Hemans
"Leaves have their time tp rail.
And flowers wither at the north wind's breath
And stars to set; but all
Thou hast all seasons for thine own, O death!"
Speaking of tbe reasonableness of death,
comparative naturalists tell ns tbat all anl
uinl natures are designed to continue Ave
times longer than the period of tbelr growth.
This we are told Is a universal law in na
ture. Tbe period or man's growth is just
twenty years, and therefore the full period
of man's life is designed to continue oue
ceutury. A hundred years we are assured
is tbe natural age of man. But this, alter
all, is matter of pure speculation, and in
what death would have differed from what
we-find itattbe present time, bad not evil
been Introduced, we can at most' only ap
proximately guess. It Is, however, quite
evident tbat death Is not a consequence of
evil, but a necessary and orderly event in
each man's li'e. Even II man bad not slo
wed, death would bsve been a fact as much
as ll is to-day. It might possibly have come
to u In a more welcome form ; it might
have occurred without disease, and It might
have come seasonably as the golden grain
falls into the arms of tbe reapers And on
the other hand itmlght not so have come.
Turning to the mission of death, we are
now prepared to regard il with scrutiny, as
we regard tbe many and various forms of
death tbat con-tantly appear before us in
nature. Alt things die. from the ephemera
of a day to tbe oak of a thousand years.
The summer's gay foliage, the flowers, the
corn, all die ; but not till their work baa
been completed. Tbe mission of death, in
nature is, "the removal of an outgrowth af
ter It baa accomplished its (unctions and
become a hindrance to continued progress
iu the subject." Decay In nature may mean
decay and nothing more, but in many In
stances It means deeay In order te .further
raimhf tint death, hat death lor the sake
growth ; not death, bat death tor the sake

growth In all time it is best for us too
hence, death comes to ns on his mission of
mercy. Some he Undi Iu the study, soma
at the bench, on tbe broad ocean, or In the
deep earth ; others he finds with the toys of
childhood, ur dreaming over the fond vis
ions of youth : and some he finds anxiously
waiting bis coming on weary beds of sick
ness, or worn with painful watching.
There is no uniformity, because be adapts
his visits to each partlcuUr ease. Our state
complete we must go,gu as tbe leaves fall,
or as tbe seed sown must die, in order to
promote growth, And viewed in this light
"death is the orderly, and withal, the beau
tiful method of traveling onward and up
ward through thoee degree or existence
whose wards unlock one after the other to
ward the shining court of tbe eternal Kin,'."
And though death may lead to different re
sults (kith different men, yet belief In tbe
goodness of God compels us to conclude
tbat with good and evil men alike the tinal
issue is fraught with equal mercy.
If we do not fear to live as we are living,
we need not fear to die. Tlieie is enly one
God ia all worlds. Heath destroy! nothing
essential to complete manhood. Han is
still a man iu every particular; not a sym
pathy has been lost, not a single chord In
the heart has ceased to v lbrate, and not one
power or faculty Is destroyed. As to tbe
Issue of death, the supreme or ruling lore
ot the soul is that which determines the
final condition or every human being. Our
supreme love or delight of lite is tbe arbiter
of everything, and If In death wc do not re.
alixe a heavenly birth, and ia the society ot
angels range among the objects of a heaven
ly world, il will be bceause we have no
sympathy wltb the good, tbe beautiful, tbe
true. Tbus viewed mortality throws us
back upon life, and bids us learn bow to
live. It with Balaam we could die the
death ot tbe righteous, we must learn to
live bis life. Then, come when it may, we
shall find death what an unknown poet has
said of It:
"'TIs slumber to ibe weary,
'Tie rest lo the forlorn.
'TU shelter to the dreary,
'TIs peace amid the storm
'TIs the entrain e to our home,

Who bids his children come

What the Great Ctaaiaer Thoafht tf tht
At oue of bis evening receptions al his
rooms in tbe National hotel, the late Alex
ander II. Stevens begin to talk about Gen.
Grant. He bad the most exaggerated Idea
of Grant. He regarded blm as one of the
greatest men tbe country ever produced.
Said Mr. Stephens : "I shall never for
get my first interview with Grant. It was
when 1 came up iu 1864 with tbe Peace
Commission from Klcbinond. I had been
reading a great deal about Grant Iu all of
our papers during the war. I bad read of
him as "butcher" Grant so long that luvo'
untarily tbat idea had become pretty llrml
established In my mind. I could not get
ont ol my mind a picture of a coarse, boor
ish, brutal man. We had with us a leading
officer of Lee's staff. He was In lull uni
form, well gotten up lor a v islt of extreme
ben wo reached Grant's headquarter
It was nearly nigbt. We had been passed
by tbe sentinels with a great deal of cere
mony. We thought when we reached
Grant's headquarters to find a great mili
tary scene. I expected to find Grant, tbe
then commander of an army or a million or
men, in a splendid po-ition, surrounded by
all tbe display that great military power
makes possible. But wbat was my sur
prise when I reached the headquarters to
find only a log-bouse, with not even a sen
try in front or it.
I doubted If this rould be Grant's head
quarters. It was now nearly nigbt. I ad
vanced with my part) at my heels, and
kuocked. There was nu servant even In
attendant e to announce alters.
.The door was opened by a plain, medium
sized man in civilian clothes. He held a
lighted lamp in bis hand.
I said, I wish lo see Gen. Grant." '
"I am Gen. Grant," he said in the sim
plest po-sible way. -'W I'l you not walk lo
"We walked in and were seated by him.
He was alone In tbe room. From tbe first
be evinced the greatest po-sible interest in
tbe object of our mission. I observed him
cloiclv during tbe hour wc were with him.
Grant's simplicity and modesty were objects
ot my most profound admiration. I notic
ed also when orderlies came in to receive
orders, tbat these were given In an ordi
nary voice. There was nothing of the
commander in bis directions. He usually
concluded an order -with the words, 'Go
quickly.' delivered in a conversational tone.
When our first consultation ended Grant
insisted upon our sleeping upon his head
quarter's boat. We asked where the boat
was. Instead of summoning an orderly or
a servant, Grant said, 'I will go wltb you
The night bad now become very dark.
We came out of the lug-bouse and went
stumbling along alter Grant, who skipped
ahead with the lightness and agility or a
boy. Every now ami then we would meet
a sentinel, lo bis r all ol, 'Who goes there!'
Grant replied, 'The general of the army.'
He conducted us personally to tbe boat, and
there assigned us to state rooms. I think
one of the belt traits of his character was
tbe great anxiety shown by blm on this oc
casion to further the interests of peace.
Instead of finding bim hard and uncom
promising, he was ready to make every
concessiou in tbe interests or peace.
Tbe next morning, when I awoke and
had dressed, I went out upon the deck of
tbe vessel, and there I saw urant running
along on tbe bank, Jumping like a boy, as
he waved a dispatch in bis band. I soon
found out tbat this was a dispatch from
Lincoln agreeing to receive the commission.
Stanton bad opposed it. but Grant's Influ

Stanton. That the commission finally fail

Nu American custom causes more general
surprise end amusement among travelling
foreigners than that which Is known In our
saloons as 'treating" consisting In tbe en
tertainment of two or more with refresh
ments for which one volunteers to pay. It
Is pure Americanism; all over tbe KrpublW
It Is as common ss in Europe It Is unknown.
There it probably no minute ofa day In Ibe
year, whsn two or three hundred cltlzoos
of any large city are not guzzling something

dowa lato the nearest subterranean cavity
beneath the sidewalk. Tbe one wbo spoke

the word "shot" being a metaphorical ref

two friends meet, tbe regular thing to say
1 first is : -Let's drink to old times," snd lbs

If there is any thing more absurd than
the habit, we are unable to put our finger
on it. Mea do not always treat each other
to ear tickets, because-they happen to meet
oa tbe same seat. We never saw a man
lake out bis p-.cketbook, on encountering a

but whea they turn lato a cafe to sip tbelr

embrace and then turn lulo an adjacent
beer sellar, sit down and drink and eat
pretiels aad chat, but when tbey part each
man aeULs bis own score independently.
So la Italy. Tbe Italians are probably
merry aad generous, but each man pays for
his own wlae, macaroni aud cigars. Thsy
would aa soon thiak of transferring to
each other their washerwoman's bills.
The preposterous fashion of "treatlag"
Is responsible for the terrible drunkenness
ia America. There would lie tittle need of
temperance societies, and little work for
the Good Templars, If this pernicious hab
it waa abolished. It Is, token all tn all, tbe
