lipion known in China; the Confu

those, the first Con fuel an ism teaches
the worship of heaven, that is, the visi
ble heaven the nky as the source of
liplit, heat and moisture; the worship
f ancestors and of (onftieius. But
heaven and ancestor-worship were
practiced long lefore the days of Con
fucius, who did not originate, but
adopted them. Indeed, anceMor-wnr-hip

mid TuoUu, at well as the followers of
Confucius, pntctice it All members
of the lit'iarr or student class and
all oflU-ials nro retjuired to le Confti-c-ianits.
The Coiifneian system allows no
place in its ritual, or service, for wo
men or children, who never worship in
nr enter the temples. The preat cen
tral buildiiip of this cult Is the magnifi
cent "Temple of Heaven" at lVkitip,
in which the Emperor of China, as the
"Son of Heaven" is the onlj priest. A
very aeriuus punishment would be
inflicted upon any one who should
carry a female Infant within the park
which surrounds this sacred edifiee.
The Taoists, few in number, have
many gods, like the ancient Greeks
and Roman. They worship the gods
of the wind, rain, thunder, lightning,
fire; of the rivers, springs, lakes and
water-courses; . of the hills and the
mountains. These are represented in
their temples, not by idols, but by i
tablcta" strips of wood two or three j
feet long and as many Jnohes wide I
upon the face of which are inscriptions !
like this: 'Sac red to the spirit and in-
vnicihle majesty of the God of the Light- j
Buddhism is the popular religion of
the Chinese. It embraces a majority
of the men, and all the women and
children. The TaoiaU often call it,
snecringly, a foreign religion. This is
true, as Buddhism was introduced into
China from India about nineteen hun- '
drcd years ago. j
There is a legend among the Chinese
that at atout the time of the birth of
Christ the Emperor had a strange
dream, often repeated, in which a spirit
told him that in the West the founder
of a new and true religion would
shortly appear, and that this new faith
would overshadow and conquer the
whole earth. He was urged to send
liiu wisest men to seek out the founder
of this new faith, and to introduce It
Into his Empire. The Emperor was
greatly moved by this dream, and, be
cause of it, did seud a commission of
high officers of state in search of the
new religion. They went into India,
there found Buddhism, and brought it
back with them. Fragment of other
forms of worship are to be found in
China. But the mass of the Chinese
people is distributed between the three
systems of religion first named.
It must not be supposed that the di
vision between them is as plain and
clearly marked as it is between differ
ent denominations of the rn tctant
Church. It is quite a common thing
for a man to wort ip in the temples of
all thrne systems. He acta upon the
principle that none of them will do him
any harm; and he is not quite sure
which can do him most gmid. The fu
neral ceremonies of all classes of Chi
nese contains certain parts conducted
by Buddhist priest, certain pa it con
ducted by Taoist priests, while rites
peculiar to the Confucian system are
The Einiwror himself, who is the
high, aud only, priest of Confucianism,
visits Buddhist and Taoist temples, and
supports a Urge number of their tem
ples and priests. But in his case a line
is drawn. He uorehii in Confucian
temples; he only patronize the gocjs of
Buddhism or Taoism. That is, be
kneels and knocks his head upon the
ground before th tablet of Coiifuciu,
but never kneels before a Buddhist
image, or a Taoist shrine.
There is no such thing as joint
worship by congregations in any of the
tempi in China, nor have the Chinese
any babhath. The division of the days
into weeks U unknown among them.
The first and lifteenth days of each
moon are more particularly net apart

t en then no cessation of business. The
temples are otieu dy and night
througliout the year, a priest is always
in attendance, and a wick floating tn a
cup of oil Is always kept burning; before
the image or the tablet.
The ordinary form of worship is very
simple, and occupies less than a min
ute. A Chinaman comes it, buys, for
s cash or two, several sticks of incense
from tha priest, who light them for

forms of begging. The writer has seen

so thnt an iron md. as large as one's
middle finger, could he passed through,
to project an Inch or two beyond rlthet
cheek. An iron half-circle was hinged
to each end of this, and paed around
the back of the priest's head. Attached
to the hidfcircle was an Iron chain,
which was so long as to drag on the
ground several feel behind hire.

is another way, still more peculiar. A
priest stands in a small tnix-like struc
ture, placed in front of a temple,
through the hoards of which spikei
hare leen driven, so that the imprison
ed priest can move no part of his body,
except his right arm, without being
pricked by a spike. With his right
hand he rings a bell, to draw attention
to his pitiable condition. Charitable
pecsons give so much for the privilege
of drawing out a spike. The highest
priced spikes are those which point to
the vital parts of the body. The priest
is supposed to stand In his kennel day
and night, until all the spikes have
been bought and drawn, but no one
believe that he really does so.
A single incident will fhow bow much

Had a stranger, unacquainted with
Delaware's mode of punishing thieves,
visited the count v jail yard at New
Castle on a recent morning he at first
would probably have Imagined that
several prize-fights were to occur soon,
writes a Wilmington correspondent
About the middle of the forenoon the
jail-yard was thronged by a motley
crowd, hooting aud jeering at ten men
who stood shir en ng in front of a pil
lory and a whipping-post These men
resembled pugilist in that they were
stripped above the waist. In them the
braggadocio and mem so common
among pugilists were lacking. Al
though hardened In crime the raw air
and the taunt of the crowd aflcctd
them unpleasantly, and they said not a
word to those jeering them. They
were convict, and during the week
had been fouud gniltf of larceny or
burglary. Two of them were while
and all were young.
Promptly at ten o'clock Sheriff Lamh
aon entered the yard, and Win. H.
Baker (white), convicted of stealing
a horse and wagon, was lashed to the
post, and to his back the sheriff ap
plied a cat-o'-niue-tails twenty times.
Whun Baker was taken back to his cell
Charles Mathews (while), convicted of
larceny of clothing, was fastened to
the post and given ten laches. Next
came six colored men Weldon Collins,
Wm. Parsons, Kobert Newell, George
Anderson, Joseph Griffin and John
Walter, who each received ten lahhea
except the last three, who each were
given five. Collins was convi ted of
stealing $31 from an Italian; Parsons
stole some fenee rails; Walter robbed a
compauionof H6; Kewcll stole some
flowers from a nursery; Anderson s
crime was the theft of an overcoat, and
Griffin's was stealing chickens.
In addition to receiving twenty lashes
Baker had to stand in the pillory for
an hour. Terry Cooper aud Francis
Bayard, both colored, convicted of
stealing $)4 from a fanner, also stood
an hour in the pillorr. The adminis
tering of the punishment was not fin
ished until the mid tile of the afternoon,
aud when the lat convict had returned
to bis celt the throng of spectator
rushed through the jail-tard gate aud

As a preventive we would suggest
placing the borses in a clean stable U

give them a good greasing with tmn

To remove the ticks wheu they have
commenced to burrow in the skin,
touch them with a little kerosene, about

which must have loft Nassau on the 5th,
and that Mr. Kads was dangerously ill with
congestion of the lunge. Although he was
in delicate health, no such fatal termination
was autictpated by his family bore. It is
Impossible to get any further particulars
relative to the death of Captain Kada, Tba
dispatch chronicling the fact was received
from Nssaau by the steamer Mstte Hender

board the vessel which brought the iniellh
gence knows any thing about the mailer.
James ft, Pads was born Itt tnWrerie
burg. Ind., Itay 2ft, 11. His Marly educe
lion waa limited, as reverses soon forced
him to leare school to asaiat itt supporting
the family. When he waa only right years
of age he became lutoreated tn machinery,
and before he waa twelve yoara of ago he
had taken to piece and readjusted a clock
and a patent lever watch, and he was then
provided with a small workshop, in which
he made all manner nf small mechanical
contrivances. When he was thirteen year
of age his father removed to Nt
Louis. Oh the war all the family
possessions were destroyed by fire,
snd the boy became a street pe idler
of orange. In the winter of that year he
built a locomotive, which was run bv a ram
tied by the tail on a treadmill in the interior.
After a short time young Kads obtained a
position with a firm the senior partner of
which li arret Williams discovered bis
mechsnical tastes and gave him free accets
to bis library. After a year or two he went

iperations of the firm were limited, their
machinery and appliance being very pniu

undertook to perform. Btich were tbe
anergy, versatility and Industry of Mr.
Kada, however, thai tbe business rapidly
expanded, until in tha space of about ten
years the Arm's pperty had increased to
half a million dollars In value In the
meantime Mr. Eada had established a fao
lory at rit Ixmls for the manufacture of
glsssware. The business did not prove re
aiunerative and be returned to the wreck
ing business. In IWi-6o he submitted to
Congress a proposition to keep tho Western
rivers open lor a term of years by remov
ing all obstructions and keeping the chan
nels free. The bill embodying his proposal
paaaed the Houso but was defeated in tha
Hen ate. He retired from active business ia

Naw Yoke, March 10. In spite of rata
the street in the vicinity of Rev. Henry
Ward Ueecher's house were crowded witbJ
people this mnrnuig. At eight o'clock

lor and commenced to read the burial ser
vice from the ritual of the Episcopal

Th Taat Qnaatltlr mt Oil Proeaeed tka
Well Near Hafcvr.
Marvelous as are the oil fields of tba
United States, they are small affairs
compared with those of the Caspian
oca region of Asia. One well alone,
near liuku, has produced more oil than
all the wells of America. An orifice,
ten Inches wide, spouted daily more oil
than waa being produced throughout
the whole world. Including therein the
2&,000 wells in America tiie thousands
of wells In tialicia, Koumaiiia. Hi 1 mi ah.
and the shale-oil distilleries of Scotland
and Wales. In one day the outflow
reached 1,100 tons, or 2 7.r0,000 gallons.
Another well ha yielded altogether
nearly 30,000,000 gallons. Notwith
standing this astonishing product, the
American oil still keeps the' huropcan
arket: seventy per cent, of tt is un il-
liiminant, which is true of only thirty
per cent, of the Hussiuii oil, 'hie. hit
ter Is, however, better for ltihrioatHi;;
purpose. Kut Hiiku. where all this
KiiSNian oil is found. Is nearly COO miles
from the Black So. A piie line ia
sjioken of, but that would be much
longer than the American pipe lines,
ami then leas than a third of the oil
could be used for lighting purposes.
Hence the necessity fur rejim ries and
for other ways of disposing nf the uon
illuminating oil of the ls.illakhaiinl
Plateau. What a singular circumstance
it Is that these vast cjiiwitities of oil
were hidden under the si 0 face of the
earth, in portions of the ghrlw-tint have
been longest inhabited, without its ex
ietence being evcu suspected by jm.

snalna mt It ltte Patter Taken ta UrM-
Niw Yoaa, March 14 The funeral ser
vices over the remains of Rev. Henry Ward
Heecher, in Plymouth Church, Brooklyn,
yesterday, were simple but ItnprosMve I
While a vast crowd of people were gath-.
ered outside the church thd lady members
of the congregation wore Wot-Sing I the bea
vers within, dressing the pulpit and casket :
with flowers. The whole interior was ,
turned Into a perfect flower garden and Ihe J
fragrant perfume of rose prevaded the air.
The walls, galleries and organ were cov
ered with evergreens, palms and calla
lilies and the resding desk with roses and ,
vines, as waa also the rhsir in which Mr
Heecher had sat for so many years. In the
center of the organ was a floral emblem in
the shape of a inanglo, on top of which
wee perched two white doves wilh
White ribbons in their bills. The facade uf
the gallery was covered wiihpotled plants,
lhepub;ii loaded down with flower and
floral emblems sent by friends and differ
ent organisations. The casket Uv oa f
catafalque of white roses, wblteearnatlnns
and smtisx. directly in front of the reading
desk. There was nothing to indicsta tbe
presence nf death except the stillness
which pervaded the room and the hushed
conversation of the workers. The church
had more the appearance of a wedding than
It waa nearly tea before the doors were
thrown open to those who had been waiting
without inimtienlly for nearly three hours.
The people entered by the Orange street
entrance and were shown to seats by usa
era, while the orgiinist, Harry KoweHhclby,
played low, sweet music upon the grand
organ. The flrst four seats on the right of
the center aisle were reserved for toe role
lives of ' the deceased. These wore not
present, and the family pew waa filled
with flowers, Ou the left side of the
center aisle were the members of
Ihe clemral union, of which Mr. Heecher
was a member for a a umber of years.
Behind these were seated the officers
of tbe Thirteenth regiment and the mem
bers of the legislative committee, and be
hind these wore delegates from nearly
every social, political and religious
organization in New Yora and Brooklyn.
At I0:!J the Rev. Dr. Charles H Hall,
robed in a white surplice and accompanied
by ihe Rev. H. B. Halliday, entered the
church snd ascended tho put form. When
the music ceased. Dr. Hull commenced to
read the opening sentence of the
.Protestant Episcopal burial service
After those, tbe double quartette and
chorus of sixty voices sang the burial
chant, "Lord, let me know mine end."
The losson was then read by Dr. Hall, and
the prayer delivered by Rev. B. U. Halhdny.
The rest of the musical programme was a
follows: Anthem "Hloased arc the de
parted." Hymn "Jesus, lover of my
souL" Henteuco "I beard a voico."
Hymn "Hark. hark, my soul.'1
After the first lesson. Dr. Hall com
menced bis oration. During Its delivery
there wss not a dry eye in the house, and
several times he was compelled to stop foi
a time to gain control of hia voice.
After the conclusion of the services the
nublie waa admitted to view the body.
Tbe other churches in which services were
held were all crowded to their utmost, and
it is estimated that fully ,000 people at
tended services in various churches. The
people were kept moving rapidly by the
guard of honor and it is estimated that
they pawed the coffin at the rate ol J0 per
minute. Tbe children connected with the
Kunday schools of Plymouth Church were
permitted to view the remains during the
Nxw York, March 12. The remains of
the late Henry Ward Beecher were taken
from Plymouth Church at 8:30 o'clock this
morning, and were conreyed to Greenwood
cemetery, where they were deposited
In a large receiving vault, where
1 hey will remain until the family
select a lot for final interment. All
night long the church was guarded by
Plymouth Company O, and at seven o'clock
this morning the remains were turned over
to the Plymouth Church committee, who
had charge of the bunaL A cordon of one
hundred police were drawn up in front
of the main entrance to tho church, on
Orange street There were rnry few peo
ple on the street at the tims and every
thing passed off quietly. None of the
family went to the church. Ateighto'clock
the members of the committee aud other
gentlemen present Uok a last look at the
dead divine and the lid of tho casket was
screwed down. The flowers which were
placed on tho top of the casket wore al
lowed to remain. Only the family and close
personal friends of the deceased went to
as stern's will.

The above article, which we reproduce

If doctors do not admit it, it is probably
becauso tlicy do not wish to attract atten
