2d Veter, 1: 0; "Anil to Knowledge Tem-
The theme before us to-day is Temper
ance. 1 o all the previously noticed cntees
nnd excolleBcies, we are to mid tr inju rants.
Mr. Wesley in his noto on this passage,
says, "Christian tempernuce implies the
voluntary nbstnining from nil pleasure
which does not load to God. It extends to
all things inwnrd nud outward, the due
government of evory thought ns well lis
affection." liinney, deftues it to be, "Keif.
government, self-control n regal power to
limit or rem'st "
Temi)uriiu?fl is an essential element of
Christian character. It is Rolf-possession.
moderation, equilibrium of feeling, wise
regulation of action, nud tho complete sub-
juoation of nppetite nnd passion to the
sway of reason, enlightened by the icord
and by the spirit of Ood.
I be modern nse of the word temperance
is mainly if not entirely confined to the
matter of abstaining from nil intoxicating
dnuks. it turns tho thought nt once to
the excesses of imlemprrancr. Every one
knows that tho mention of the magic word
lemperanee lifts the curtain, and reveals
tho dnrk back ground of poverty and crime
drunkenness and revelry, debauchery and
reeking vice, oviibatinge and widowhood.
frenzy and delirium, blasted hopes, ruined
bodies, and lost Rouls. These and the
trooping demons that snrronnd the unhap
py victims, together with all the blighting
effects on eootety, give an awful and lurid
grandeur to the subject.
Tho sad havoc of intempornneo rises so
fearfully to viow, that it becomes; nluiost
impossible to speak in moderatiou on the
subject of tempernuce. Certainly there is
no room for us to eucourage a moderate
use of intoxicating drinks. The oft ro
peated failures in this imuter ought to be
enough to convince ns that there in no pos
sibla security only iu total ahttinrnef.
Perhaps no better definition of temperance
can bo given than this, total abstinence
from all tilings hurtful or intoxicating, and
a moderate use of all things beneficial.
The plea that J?nul advised Timothy to take
a little wine for his stomach's sake, and his
often infirmities, can hardly sanctify the
guzzling habits of some who seek to per
vert Scripture and find an excuse for their
vil practices. Paul's companion was
Luke, who is called the "beloved physi
cian." And Paul's advice to Timothy was
undoubtedly simply the medical prescrip
tion of Dr. Luke.
It is a very difficult thing to speak ou the
subject of temperance to-day, not because
the theme is barren of interest, but because
of prejudice against it, from political or
other considerations, and also becnuso we
ns friends of toinpcruo.ee have been deceived
and baffled by legislation, till there is dis
gust, and some degree of discouragement
in the public mind. There ure those who
say "nothing is practicable, and nothing
uoed be hoped from legislation, or from
mixing tho subject with politics." All of
which of course means, they do uot intend
to meddle with the matter for the time
But at, this point, I will only ask a few
questions. Cau any one claiming to be a
friend to law and order, sit down and do
nothing while the rum power is dictntiug
legislation, over-awing politicians, corrupt
ing the Judiciary, and paralyzing tho ad
ministration of law, fostering crime, and
endangering the very foundations of
society ? Can you fold your arms, nurse
your wrath and do nothing, while the
iiqnor business by day and by night goes
on ruining yonr neighbors, and perchance
your own family ? Will you sit and look
on while au leeenduiry is firing your own
bom?? Will you wait till a robber has
plundered yonr home of nil its valuables,
before you seek to eject him. ? Let me say
to you in all kindness, you can not afford
to ignore this question. No matter what
has pleased or displeased you, you have too
much at Btake to be indifferent. You can
not ignore the subject if you would. I'oli
ticiaus cau no more crowd this subject out
of politics than they cau turnback Niagara,
or prevent an eclipse. They may throw
dust in the air, boat their gongs, tire their
crackers like superstitious Chinees, bat all
to no purpoee, the eclipse marches right
on, as it did the other day. Once npou a
time it was determined to keep slavery out
of polities, and even solemn religious as
semblies decreed that ministers and people
should have nothing to do with its discus
sion. But the agitation wont right ou ! Bo
will it be with this temperance issue.
It will be iu politics for several reasons
First, because the snloon men and liquor
denlers persist in putting it there, they are
determined to rule or ruin. tiecoudly,
because the people have some sense of
manhood left, and have conscience ou the
subject of submitting to the tyranny and
havoo of iutenieranc. Thirdly, I think
it will be iu the politics of the land, be
cause Qod has not lost his interest iu our
country, and doubtless nienuB to rid it of
the curse of intempe rance. And who shall
say that the foulest blot ou modern civili
zation, the evil that loads society with
heavier burdens, nud more intolerable
woes, thiui any and all other things, ought
not to be iu politics. No other question
before tho American people, has iu it half
thn weal or woe for the commonwealth that
Therefore it ought to engage the atten
tion of every philanthropic legislator.
But not to follow this thought further
present, let us remember that our text seeks
the general good, by requiring each individ
ual to cultivate temperance, und to be tem
perate. hatever may or may uot be dotie
bv legislature, or iu the line of prohibition,
each individual must be pure, or forfeit his
Christiau character. Christianity seeks,
bore, as in all moral reforms, to work
through individuals. And w hen conscience,
principle, ami clmractor ure developed,
these being united become the resistless
power behind the throne, bring about those
beiieiieiiil revolutions that overturn dynas
ties, and establish rightcoiiB reforms, and
Hut after you and I have obeyed the text
so fur as our experience and practice may
go, there still remains an obligation upon
us to do what we can for the removal
this uumitigatud curse of intemperance
from society. Politicians will
do nothing only as they are forced by
Politicians say, "it is dangerous to party
interests, to touch the temperance question
But they ought to know they can uot
otherwise than touch it. And they ought
to have discernment etioegh to know,
it may prove vastly more daugerous
ignore it, than to touch it.
Drunkenness Is so increasing In Germany
as to threaten the ruin of that nation. The
government is at last seeking means by which
to restrain the sale of liquor. It is stated that
at least 10, Hot) persons die of delirium tremens
every year in that country. In Berlin alone
there are 11.000 saloons, and fortv-one ner
cent, of the crimes committed are attributable
to thn Intlnnnce of liquors. The defenders of
beer-drinking can no longer point to (iernmnv
is happy example of moderate drinking'.
Wretchedness ami sorrow havo written thnr
history on that fair land.
"In the performance of our dutv we linvc
been deeply impressed with th" fscf that four-
fifths, if not nine-tenths, of the Mloo nanosrs
and criminals which till our public institutions,
are in their present ssd and deplorable condi
tion through the influence of in'.oicam:g
liquors. If we look beyond these institutions
todetermino the cost of tho liquor traffic to
this city: if wn estimate the increase ,,f iho
police force necessary to meet its requirements,
the degradation email ding from the inramous
pest-houses which it sustains, tho idleness
which it fosters, the wealth which it squanders
ami destroys, the poverty and disgrace which
it entails, the but deus and expenses which it
lays upon our courts of justice; ami if we add
to these thn perpetual support of so large a
number of paupers and criminals the loss
which we suffer is incalculable." - VVic Crawl
Jury of J'luladi liliia.
But still the question comes up, " What
can ( do?" I can not till. We may

Oue of tho lowest developments in tho
slavery of some public men to the behests
of saloon keepers, may bo seen in tho re
cent action of the Iudittna Senate. The
law of the State requires saloons to close at
11 p. ui. But tho saloon moil not being
satisfied with Ihe law, notified their ser
vants in tho Senate that they wanted the
time extended till midnight. I'pon this
demand a bill was prepared and offered
extending the time. Iu supporting tho
bill, Mr. Bailoy said, "Theatres, and
prayer meetings close at 11 o'clock, nud
there are just as many people from prayer
rnoetiugs go into saloons, as nny other
people." Mr. Thompson claimed that the
"Traveling public coming in at late hours
of the night, after the hotels nro closed.
would be benefited by tho extension of the
time of closing the saloons until 12 o'clock.
Tho bill was lost by a vote of
20 to 19. So you see it lacked only one
vote of passing the Senate. But now a

Secondly ia regard to "peo

Is there a shadow of truth in that state

say that those who go to the saloons are
church members, but it may be presumed
that he meant to cast it stigma upon the
people who go to prayer meetings.
It would be safe to say thut not oue in ten

New Modes and Enormous Yields.
The editor nnd proprietor of Iho Iiural
Xeir Yorker is conducting a series of ex
periments iti the production of potatoes,
and ns a result of former exeriments gives
to the world a somewhat now- plan of cul
ture with enormous results. In one case a
yield at tho rate of Lb'il bushels to the
acre, another of HWIJ bushels. These are
exceptional yields, it is true, but in the
lust year's reports some fifty in number
show numerous yields of 4",() and over COO
bushels of the different varieties tested.
We desire to give our renders tho benefit
of this plan of cultivation, nnd hope it will
be given a fair test by our wide awake po
tato raisers nnd report to us tho results.
Trenches two spades wide, five inches
deep nnd three feet npnrt, are dug nnd the
soil thrown out. The soil iu the bottom is
raked mellow, tho pieces (two eyas each)
placed one foot apart in this treuch, aud
covered with ono inch of soil. Then for
. 'li.i-rs were strewn evenly and the trench
filled lightly to tho surface.
The cultivation is done between the rows
entirely with tho wheel cultivator and be
tween the plants with tho hoe. Very little
hoeing is required as the plouts meet be
fore the weeds start.
The hoil is never hilled up about the
plants but kept to the same level over tho
This mode of culture is modified for
places and times where drouth is appre
hended, by spreading over the soil which is
first spread over the seed about two inches of
loose hay or straw first run through a
cutter, nnd the fertilizer spread over tho
straw, then fill the trenches, crowning up
the surface to allow for sinking from rains,
etc., so as to leave the trench level when
T he kind and quantity of fertilizers used
in these experiments has been left out of
this publication for two reasons, first, be
cause the needs of different soils are unlike,
and the kinds and quantity required will
havo to be determined by experieneo in
each case or nualysis. The second reason
why this is omitted is that it was a special
fertilizer that is uot readily available to
our farmers. This however may be relied
on: that is that three elements ure required,
namely, phosphoric ncid, potash and uitroj
gen, and the quantify should be 12011
pounds per acre or over, and any of the
commercial fertilizers continuing these ele
ments will be of the greatest valno.
Tho best results with this mode of cul
ture are obtained where the ground is
plowed in the fall nud harrowed level, and
the trenches made at timo of planting.
The largest potatoes nro the best for
seed, nnd two eyes sufficient for each piece.
The object in using the larger potatoes for
seed is to give the sprout sufficient support
prior to its putting forth roots.
