Death of Hayard Taylor.
Bayard Taylor, American minister to
Berlin, died yesterday alternoon at four
o'clock, In the city of Berlin. Mr. Taylor
received the appointment to the high po
sirion which he has since , filled bo credi
tably, on the 151 h of February last. He
was born in Kennett Square, Chester
county, Penn., Jan. 11, 1825, and at the
age ot 17.years hi became an apprentic
in a printing office in West Chester. It
was here that he developed a genius tor
willing, but he remained only two years,
when he went to Europe, where he made
a pedestrain tour in 1844-5. After his re
turn he wrote a book called "Views Aloot,
or Europe Seen with a Knapsack and
Staff." This book had a good sale. He
afterwards tor a year edited a paper in
Plioenixville, Pa., then went to New
York and wrote for the Literary World.
In 1848 Mr. Taylor became a member
of the New York Tribune staff, where he
became a lite-long filend of Horace
Greeley. He remained a contributor of
the Tribune up to the death of Mr.
Greeley. It was in 1849 that he visited
California, returned by way ot Mexico, a
time when it required nerve to make a
tour ot the kind. In 1851 he set out on a
protracted European tour, in the course
ot which he ascended the Nile, alter which
he went to China, Calcutta and Japan.
In 1862 he became secretary ot legation
at St. Petersburg. In 1874 he attended
the Icelandic millennial celebration, at
which a poem ot his was read, translated
As a public lecturer, scarcely less than
a writer, Bayard Taylor became known
to the people of "his own country.
He was entertaining as well
as instructive on the platform, his vast
iund ot information ot foreign lands tur
nishing inexhaustible resources on which
to draw lor illustrations. Ho married a
German wile about the year 1872, and
resided and atterwards spent most ot his
time in Berlin until 1876. He wrote and
published, in hII, thirty seven volumes,
including books ot travel, novels and
poetry, several of his books have been
translated into German, French and Rus
sian. Thus he stood one ot the foremost
among American authors.
The appointment ot Bayard Taylor as
minister ot Berlin was considered one of
.the most creditable made by the present
administration, and was received witb ex
pressions ot satii-faction by everybody at
borne, while Berlin journals spoke ot it ill
terms indicting the warmest leeling lor
the man. His memory will long ba treaS'

It the predictions of Henry Snhroeder,
made at his residence, corner of Fifty-sec-

dawn upon mankind, or, if it doesn't, it
,will certainly not be the lault of Henry
bchroeder, ex-masie teacher, and now
specially commissioned to establish the
"Millenial Mother Church" and make a
New Jerusalem out ot New York. The

to a lew members ot the press, and quo
ted a few lines trom a long document that
is to constitute "the plattorm" ot the new
church : "Much darkness prevails, hence
light must be showered upon mankind.1'
"lhe majority ot people live tor mammon
only, scandalize their parents alter their
death, rob the graves ot others, while all
of us daily pray, 'Thy kingdom come.' "
"The question to be answered is, shall
this world be a paradise or a hell? The
only way to secure happiness is to estab

time ot deliverance shall have come."
HOW HE RECEIVED HIS COMMISSION.

"My experience began three years ago,
sir,, alter I had passed twenty-five years
of my life in darkness; I began to seek
for the truth and found it. On Good Fri
day two years ago I was in a High Epis

two hours on my knees, and 1 was in the
act ot rising when I was pressed upon my
back as if to remain. 1 could not raise.
My name was called, 'Schroeder ! Schro

of thunder. I looked around to see if any
body was there who knew me. but they
were all strangers, and I remained upon
my knees until three o'clock in commun

Chapter of Isaiah, has been pointed out
as an event ot the immediate tuture. I
have most reluctantly taken this step

DEPRESSION AND DISTRESS.
London, Deo. 18. In the House ot
Commoiii last night the home secretary.
in answering the inquiry "whether it was
true as reported that we are now lace to
face with such a crisis of distress as this
generation has neyer known P" said though
much distress unhappily preyailed among
the laboring poor, the description ot it in
the question was exaggerated. There
was nothing to cause unnecessary alarm.
He read telegrams Irom the bead of the
board ot supervision at Edinbnrg and the
mayors ot Liverpool and Manchester,
staling tnac ine ordinary means 01 rciiei
were at present sufficient to meet all
necessities. He had not had time to In
quire into the condition ot the coal and
iron districts at liirtningnam. A meeting
convened by the Mayor was held yester
day to consider the best means to relieve
the distress which is declared .
and increasing daily. The mayor wns
requested to organize means for raising
and distributing reuet. At anemeia two
thousand children and three thousand
adults received aid last week. The
Mayor's reliel tund amounts to $30,000.
At Stockton the distress is increasing.
Hundreds of lamilies of iron workers are
destitute, and an Influential committee is
canvassing tor subscriptions and contribu
tions. At Stoke-on-Trent great distress
prevails, which Is enhanced by the se
verety of the cold. The distress com
mittee is unable to keep pace with the de
mand. At Burslem a mevting v as called

to alleviate the distress. Great want is

The lord provost and the magistrates
are organizing very thorough relief for
the most urgeut distress. A Dundee dis
patch says there is much misery in that
part of Scotland. No adequate measures

northern part of the country where the
fishermen and agricultural laborers are
destitule. At Manchester vast numbers
of the middle class poor, who will not
appeal to charity, are suffering keenly.
A Liverpool dispatch says it is many
years since the working class endured
such distress and privations. At 15 r fa to I

Physicians versus Metaphysicians.
Last night an astronomer was standing
in his observatory carefully scanning the
heavens with the tar-reaching eye ot the
telescope. In a room below, the ge
ologist was studying the constitution of
our planet trom the specimens ot rocks
scattered aroond him. The difference be
tween the occupation of these two men
exactly expresses the difference between
the physicians and metaphysicians. While
the metaphysician is searching the Illimi
table expanse ot Thought with the tele
scope ot Reason, adding little to human
knowledge but speculatiye theories, the
physician is studying the tangible nature
that enfolds us this "temple not built
with hands" deducing theretrora ex
perimental truths that alleviate and im
prove man's physical condition. These
are the tacts that should be as current
coin among the people. Why educate
your sons and daughters in the specula
tions of Descurtes, Kant, Locke, and
Spencer, before they have learned the
laws and conditions that govern their
physical nature? It is well to study your
stomach before you examine the stars.

The foreign bankers of New York are
putting themselves on record as abettors
of the government in the resumption ot
specie payments. A transaction by one
the largest Canadian banks, as reported
by the New York Journal ot Commerce,
illustrates this. The bank has a large
amount of gold tailing due on the 31st ot
this month. A tew days ago they arranged
with one party, from whom about bait ot
this was coming, to close out the contract
at $100 1-8, which was below the market
price on the day the agreement was made.

How Telegraphic Dispatches Come
Yesterdav the New York Herald, in a
leading article, called attention to the
modern wonders effected in overcoming
time in progress through space. An in
stance of this is afforded in the case of a
dispatch from Lahore, elsewhere printed,
dated 'December 8, midnight." This
dispatch was sent down trom Lahore to
Bombay; thence transcribed into and
transmitted to London, probably being
repeated at leust twice on -the way, viz.,
at Alexandria and Paris; written out in
London it was handed over to the London
agent of the Associated Press, by whom
it was once more condensed into cipher
and sent on to New York; there it was
handed over in cipher to the New York
agent ot the Associated Press, was again
written out and was sent on to Philadel
phia ; here it was received in the Western
Union Telegraph office, and turned over
alter a press copy had been made to
the Philadelphia agent of the Associated
Press, by whom it was transcribed in
manitold and the manifold copies distrib
uted to the ofScurs ot the several morning
papers. The dispatch was received in
the 'limes office at 10:15 p.m. accord
ing to solar time, two hours before it
started trom the other side ot the globe 1
In real time, the distance traveled was
upward of fifteen thousand miles in al
most precisely ten hours. This is not an
exceptional perfoimance; it occurs every
day. Philadelphia Tirnes, Dec. 9.
