MORAL AND MATERIAL PROGRESS
. CONTRASTED POLITICAL :
' PREACHERS, '
1 Tub following able nnd striking article
U from a secular paper, and probably from
the pen of a man making no profession ofwill not only readily concede this claim
piety. It speaks out on a subject deserv
ing the scriousf attention of all lovers of
our country. The times are "out of joint"
Men professing to bo called of God to
publish salvation, and win sinners to Christ
and piety, leave their work to "curse"
niagUtrutos, rail at rulers,, and teach sedi
tion and rebellion. May a kind Provi
dence interpose and save us from the
threatened ruin ! Christian Advocate.
"There has been much said and written
about the superior civilization, Christiani
ty, and intelligence of the American peo
ple of tlie nineteenth century, but we are
free to confess that it is nn unsolved prob
lem whether this is an arrogant assump
tion, a gross, humbug, or a substantial
truth. If we take as tho test of superiori
ty mere progress in material art and science,
theu, indeed, the claim is valid; it is a
fixed fact and not a vaiu -glorious boast.
But thero is a broader and deeper basis
upon which the structure of human pro
gress should be erected. '' The cultivation
of tho moral and religious element is of
vastly more importance to the prosperity
of a free people than. any advance they
may make iu wealth, physical science, and
art. 111 fares the land in which wealth,
luxury, and physical comforts increase
while the morality and virtue of its people
steadily, decline. What though we rear
tho most torneous temples, with t-loud-piorning
spires, aud garnish them with nil
tho ornate embellishments that architec
tural skill can elaborate I What though
wo snatch the subtle lightning" from the1
skies, chain it to each, and make it the
faithful messenger of our will! To what
end do we explore the bowels of the earth
and grasp the treasures of tho mine? w
Why send our ships to traverse every sea
and cotuo back freighted with the rich
produc ts of every cJiuio? ' Wherefore have
we bound States toother in metallic bonds
uud tent the iron horse turecriug over its
track? In short, to what purpose have
boeu all these grand toncoptiun, theio
e'ph'tidid eliminations of man's creative
genius, if, mcanvihile, religious l'aitk. in
dividual morality, un 1 public virtue shall
nave sunk until thesu qualities, so essential
to ,he vituftty of a free government, seem
about to expire under the pressure of ac
cumulated vice i?
"It' the tiinctth century bus given

I rouyl JoiV tho baleful lieCST of Mor
mon: the Ciio genius that oritfiuated the
railway and tto steamship, is also rcspon
eible for the wild vagaries of J'ree-love and
spiritualism; and, if churches are more
numcroui ttnd njagmncent, who will eaj
that many of them are . not trophies of
pride, rather than contributions ot piety !
In th i northern 'cities, churches , and
theatre arc often huilt pr Bpeculation; the
same peoplo patronize both; and a piquant

to make either a paying concern. What

and metal, and , decorates her pltars with
velvet aud gold, while piety plnnts its altarin
tho heart, clothes it with humility and
prayer and sacrifices in secret to the liv
ing God. , A people may be religious with
out being pious, but they cannot well be
pious without being also religious. 1 Reli
gion without piety' will' neither purify the
heart nor iniprovo the morality of man.
To promote piety rather than propagate
religious creeds is then tho duty of the
faithful minister of God.
"In the Northern States, more than in
any other portion of tho Union, the tniiiis
isters of the gospel mould and fashion the
couduct'of thsj people. And as in that
region material progress is regarded as of
paranioti.it importance, it is not wonderful
that tho preachers yield to the pressure of
popular precedent, and apply to religion
tho piaetiee of tho peoplo inthuir worldly
affairs Tho laymen amuts woulth, and
build palatial dwellings, while the minis
ters strivo to sccuro largo calaries and
preach in splendiJ churches. , When they
have succeeded in erecting a giiiirous
toutpU and furnished it with velvet wush
ious, satin tapestry, brussels carpeting, and
an organ costing more than a Kentucky
country church, then for the sake of uni
formity it is deemed esscutial to success
that they bhall do up some piquant preach
ing. The homely truths of the gospel are
hcKPtpjiH-p iritlcssand out of 01
these oilroad and telegraphic times; some
thing more spicy and exciting must lc
served up to the novelty-seeking audience,
and so the minister regales the people as
sembled in the house of God with a epeci
moi of rampant political preaching. Ho
rants and raves and 'deals damnation round
the land and seems quite indifferent whe
ther it falls on the Supreme Court of the
United States; the Constitution and laws of

moro of these red and crisped loaves in his
heart? Tho battle -of life is closo and hot,
and men have no tiiuo to pau?e by their
wounded companions. Yet.it is pleasant
to recall the earlier days of our early pil
grimage,' for then friends were friends, and
wre not always in too j;reat a hurry to
stretch out a helping hand io a fallen com
rade. . !
Th-y are gone, those dreamy days; their
rainbow hopes have faded into the sullen
gray of the cloudy skies.
