That wonderful woman, Gail Hamilton,
closes one of her able articles upon Civil
Service Reform, in the N. Y. Tribune, in
the following noble and prophetic words :
"The attempt to make Civil Service
Reform a political issue is a disastrous
failure. Political issues are not made
They are. Prodigious efforts have been
put torth to lift this into vitality and na
tionality, but it is flat and flabby, a scoff
and a by-word. There is an issue which
is vital. A great crowd of witnesses have
agreed that it is dead. It was stabbed in
the house of its friends. A multitude of
public men, of political writers, of mer
chant princes the rich, the religious, the
literary, clergymen, professors, poets
stood by consenting unto its death They
buried it safe and deep. They trimmed
the turf o . er it snug and smooth. Tbey
feasted on the tuneral baked meats.
They raged against the few men here and
there who protested against their deed
They resolved and proclaimed and exult
ed that it was dead. But it was not dead
It was buried, but it was buried alive.
The pipings of peace and festivity above
it have not been able to smother the
sounds of dole and drear that ever and
anon come up from that cruel grave. And
assure as there is a God in Heaven who
rules among the nations, we are drawing
on to a swift and stern resurrection
We continue the extracts from the
great article in the Atlantic Monthly,
"Certain Dangerous Tendencies in Amer
ican Life :" . 9
"This leads me to consider the relig
ious and moral character and equipment
which our people possessed fifteen years
ago, and the effect of the new conditions
upon these factors of our national lite
The nominal faith or religion of the
country was what is called evangelical
Protestantism. Its early creeds and sym
bols were still unchanged ; but the real
religion of the people wa9 already, to a
great extent, a decorous worldliness.
The formal observances of religion de
pended largely upon habit; that is, the
religious activities ol our people had long
bee 1 chiefly the momentum remaining
from old impulses, from influxes or evo
lutions of moral or spiritual force which
had inspired men in former times, and
had then produced an earnestness and
self-denial ol which even the tradition
was mostly lost The force which re
mained was constantly diminishing. The
moral impulse received onn before had
mostly passed into structure, bad pro
duced very nearly its full effect upon the
character of men and the forms of life in
society; and by a well known law, which
appears in the working of all forces of
whatever nature, the power that had
thus been embodied could not be used
again in the same form. There was no
longer any considerable influx or evolu
t.ir..i rf new religious oower or vitality.

more speculative and rationalistic Ev

morals or duty It lost all ed(e, all di
rectness of application to the real que
tions nnd interests of human life in this
world It was no longer addressed to the
conscience, but to the taste, to the set bet

carried us out ot the region and condi
tions in which it had been the (unci ion
of the pulpit to rebuke the sin ot men
to quicken and reintoice their con-cien
ces by faithful teaching ot the nigral
requirements of Christianity. The effect
of the new hunger for wealth and display
extended to religion and its organic
activities The new tide ot worllliness
rose everywhere, and submerged to a
great extent a church which it found
open and without defence against the
flood. The conditions ot lile, the tempt
ations and enticements, were new The
allurements to aveed and dishonesty
were appallingly strong. The religious
people ot the country in general had no
adequate training or moral discipline to
prepare them to 'ace the new !..fs ') he

time. Sbe did vasily better than those
who did nothing, than many ot her erit

The disintegration of religion ha- pro
ceeded rapidly. There are now several
features ot our national religious lite and
thought which must be noted in anv real
study ot our present condition N. one
statement or athi-mation can he rnaae to
include all the truth The religion of
our country cannot hestudied adequately
or successfully in the churches of the
large cities alone What of the people
in the smaller towns, the villages, and
country neighboi hoods ? What is their
religion? The church is now, for the
most part, a depository of social rather
than of religmu influences Its chiet
force or vitality is no longer religious
There are still, of course, many truly re
ligious people in the churches, who sin
cerely believe the old doctrines embodied
in all the creeds. But these are every
where a small minority, and they are
mournfully conscious tbat the old relig
ious life and power have departed from
the church. They distrust the methods
of the modern revivalism, and do not feel
at home among the younger members ol
the church, with their advanced views
and fashionable, thorough going worldli
ness They are alarmed to find the at
mosphere and tone ot the church becom
ing more and more secular and business
like. These people, who thus represent
the better elements ot a former state ot
things, are the real strength ot the evan
gelical Protestant churches, so far as
religion is concerned, and their character
is one ol the most wholesome and truly
conservative forces ot our nations! lite
They are not liberal in their views, but
they are sincere Tbey live pure and
good lives. They speak the truth, a tare
virtue now, and they can he trusted witn
anybody's money Tbey will do what
they believe to he right, though all men
deride or oppose, and at any cost to
themselves in business or worldly inter
ests. But they are too few to regenerate
the American church, though their influ
euce is highly valuable in resisting some
of the evil tendencies of the age. Most
of them are old, and they have few sue
cessors among the younger people They
have already done most of their work,
and their number and strength diminish
from year to year

in no way different from the social life of

and to present success.
"Their ministers ate men of intelligence
and ot considerable culture They be
lieve even less than their people of the
doctrines of their creeds. Tbey general
ly avoid doctrinal subjects in preaching,
and have lor some years based their
teachingmostly upon utilitarian grounds
They have for themselves accepted ra
tionalists beliefs far in advance of what
they teach, and consider themselves en
gaged in a most necessary and uselul
work, that of leading the people gradu
ally onward in thought and knowledge
by carefully giving them the truth as
they are able to bear it. Their caution
is extreme, and they thus sacrifice what
ever strength may belong to courage and
outspoken sincerity Their teaching is
tar less advanced and rationalistic than
the habitual thought of their hearers.
They do not understand the real tenden
cies of the time, lacking the insight and
the synthetic judgment which result from
independent search for truth, and from
heartiness of conviction They greatly
overrate the success of their system of
repression, of keeping back most of
what they themselves believe. It fosters
skepticism, and spreads distrust of all
moral and religious verity, as the people
are aware that their ministers practice
the concealment of their real beliefs.
Their preaching is usually far more in
tellectual than formerly, but is not based
on the creeds, nor on any announced or
coherent philosophy, fragments of bos
tile systems of thought often appearing
in amiable proximity, if not in any real
relation, to each other. There is nobody
to criticise the preaching of these cleigy
men. Their teaching is otten curiously
remote from all the practical concerns
and conditions of life in our time and
country, and is almost entirely destitute
of moral authority and power. They re

A Card for the Standard.
The following was received just after
we had gone to press last week :
To the Editor of the Standard:
1 have read the article from Bishop
Haven, in last week's issue I indorse
substantially the sentiments therein con
tamed, and especially that part showing
that the Republican party had been ret
rogating for the last ten years until the
rum power and the Republican party are
one. Bishop Haven is one of our first
Prohibitionists, having voted for Black
and Rupell in 1872, and has been consist
ent and true to the Prohibition cause
ever since N. xt to mv faith in God is
my faith in the enlightened Christian
sentiments as expressed by our heloved
Bisiiop. to save our country Mav he
ever stand as a Beacon light, and may the
ministry and laity march forward in the
w ke, bearing aloft the nag ot our conn
ry, not as a flaunting lie. but as an em
blem ot freedom and protection to every
citizen under its folds Loyd Garrison,
in 1831. in the first issue ol his paper,
said: will he heard;" and why? Be
cause his lellow mall was placed on the
auction block and sold into slavery both
of body and mind And when the histo

ccupy a brighter page than Loyd Garri
son So it will be wilti Bismip nayen

pation of all races from the slavery of
the rum power.
.Now, friend M-ackiey. as we ' are in ac
cord on the temperance question, permit

The Sun for 1879.
THE SUN will be printed everyday during
the yar lo come. Ilspurpose and method will
be the same as in the pasl : I'o present all the
ners in a readable shitpe, and to tell the truth
though the lii av.-ns lull
THE SUN has been, is, and will continue to
be independent of everybody and everything
save tiie Trulh and its own convictions of duty.
That is th.- only policy which an honest news
paper need have. That is the policy which has
won for this newspaper the confidence and
friendship of a wider constituency than was
ever enjoven oy any oiuer American journal.
TH K SUN is the newspaper lor the people.
It is not for the rich man against the poor
man, or for th- poor man against tbe rich man,
but it seeks to do equal justice to all interests
in the community. It is not the organ of any
pel-son, class, sect or party, mere need oe no
mysiery about its loves and hates. It is for the
honest Democrat as against tne dishonest Re
publican, and for the honest Republican as
against the dishonest Democrat. It does not
take its cue from the utteran. es of any politi
cian or political organization. It gives its sup
port unreservedly when men or measures are
in agreement wilh the Constitution and witti
the principles upon which Ihis Republic was
founded tor the people. Whenever the Consti
tution and constitutional principles are violat
ed as in the outrageous conspiracy ol 1876, by
which a man not elected was placed in tbe
President's office, where he still remains it
speaks out. for the right. That is THE SUN'S
idea of independence. In this respect there
will be no change in its programme for 1879.
THE SUN has fairly earned the hearty hatred
of rascals, frauds, and humbugs of nil sorts and
sizes. It hopes i o deserve that hatred not less
in ihe year 1879, than in 1878. 1877, or any year
pone by. THE SUN will continue to shine on
the wicked with unmitigated brightness.
While the lessons of the past should tie con
stantly kept before the people. THE SUN does
not proposi to make itself in 1879 a magaziue of
ancient history. It is primed for the men and
women ol to day, whose concern is chiefly wilh
the affairs of to-day. It has both the disposi
tion and the ability to afford its readers l he
promptest, fullest, and most accurate intelli
gence of whatever in the wide world is won h
attention. To this eud the resources belonging
to well-established prosperity will be liberally
The present disjointed condition of parties in
this country, and the uncertainty of the future,
lend an extrnordinarv significance to the
events of the coming year. The discussions of
the press, the debates and acts of Congress, and
the movements of Ihe leaders in every section
of the Republic will have a direct bearing on
the Presidential election of lhSO an event
which must be regarded with the most anxious
interest by every patriotic American, whatever
his political ideas or allegiance. To these ele
ments of interest may be added the probability
that the Democrats will control both houses of
Coneress, the increasing feebleness of the fraud
ulent Administration, and ihe spread and
strengthening everywhere of a healthy abhor
rence of fraud in any form. To present with
accuracy and clearness the exact situation in
each of its varying phases, and to expound, ac
cording to its well-known methods, the princl
pies that should guide us through the labyrinth
will be an important part of THE SUN'S work
We have the means of making TIIE SUN, as

more entertaiuing and more useful than evei
before; and we mean to apply them treely.

By an Immense practice at the "World-; Dispen
sary and Invalids' Hotel, having treated many thou
sand CMea of those diseases peculiar to woman. I
have been enabled to perfect a most potent and posi
tive remedv lor these diseases.
To designate this natural specific, I have named It
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription
The term, however, is but a feeble expression OX
my high appreciation of its value, based upon per
sonal observation. 1 have, while witnessing its posi
tive results in the special diseases incident to the
organism of woman, singled it nut as the climax or
crownlnar sera of my medical career. On its merits,
as a positive, safe, and effectual remedy for this class
of diseases, and one that will, at all limes and under
all circumstances, act kindly, I am willing to stake
my reputation as a physician; and so eoniidentam
I tiiat it will not disappoint the most sanguine ex
pectations ot a single iuvalld ladv who uses it for any
of the ailments for which I recommend it. that 1 offer
and sell it under A POSITIVE GCAKANTEE. (For
conditions, see pamphlet wrapping bottle.)
The following are among those diseases in which
my Favorite Prescription lias worked cures, as If by
magic, ami witli a certainty never before attained by
anv medicine: Leucorrlicea, Excessive Flowing,
Painful Monthly Periods, Suppressions when from
unnatural causes, Irregularities, Weak Back, Pro
lapsus, or Falling of the Uterus, Antevcrsion and
Retroversion, Bcarlng-down Sensations, Internal
Heat, Nervous Depression, Debility, Despondency,
Threatened Miscarriage, Chronic Congestion, In
flammation and ITlcerationot the Uterus. Inipoteucy,
Barrenness, or Sterility, and Female "Weakness. I
do not extol this medicine as a " cure-all." hut It
admirably fulfills a slnglceM of purpose, being a
most perfect specific in all chronic diseases of the
sexual system of woman. It will not disappoint, nor
will it do harm, in anv state or condition.
Those who desire further information on these suti-
lects can obtain it in THE peoele s . omjion 5bs

of Potassium and Iron, and is the most
efficacious medicine yet known for
the diseases it is intended to cure.
Its ingredients are so skilfully com
bined, that the full alterative effect of
each is assured, and while it is so mild
as to be harmless even to children, it is
still so effectual as to purge out from the
system those imparities and corruptions
which develop into loathsome disease.
The reputation it enjoys is derived
from its cures, and the confidence which
prominent physicians all over the coun
try repose in it, prove their experience
of its usefulness.
Certificates attesting its virtues have
accumulated, and are constantly being
received, and as many of these cases are
publicly known, they furnish convincing
evidence of the superiority of this Sar
saparilla over every other alterative
medicine. So generally is its superi
ority to any other medicine known, that
we need do no more than to assure the
public that the best qualities it lias ever
possessed are strictly maintained.
