All for Christ.
Among those who sought
and found Christ in the ,gre;it
revival of 185S, was James ,
an Englishman, 45 years old.
-All his life he had been a sail
or.; and at length he . shipped
with an American captanv Mr.
B- ,who fiRe'd him so well
that he persuaded him to come
with him to America, and be
come a member of his family. "
When the revival began,
James went one evening into
the chapel. The next evening
he went again, and with oth
ers asked for the prayers of
God's .people, that he might be
brought to Christ.
Hut Captain B , "cared
for none of these things," and
told James that if he attended
he -meeting he must lose his
place. But James replied, ."I
want to be a Christian, and I
must go. I shall serve you all
the better Captain B ,"
'; Before . many days he found
Christ. Captain B - then
told him that he must leave ofl'
. going to Church, or lose his
place. James carried this, his
great trial, to the Lord Jesus,
and found strength for the time
That night he went again,
expressed a determination to
follow Christ, and the next
morning Captain B dis
missed him from his service.
But James soon found a
home in a Christian lamily,
connected himself with tht
church, and is still living and
working for Jesus. Captain
B died a few years after,
"without God and without
James still finds the promise
sure, "Them that honor me I
will honer." "lie who heareth
the young . ravens when they
cry," did not forsake the soul
. who trusted in him.
The startling announcement
is made by the retiring chap
lain that the Binghamton Asy
lum for Inebriates is a failure,
only three out of eighty-two
patients being permanently
cured of the drunkeness for
which they were treated. We
hope ' our information is false.
But there is another style of
treatment we suggest as worth
trying. We seek for it through
investigation. Last summer, in
a religious meeting held in
Fourth Ward, New York, we
heard men say that they had
been drunkards, but had been,
by the grace of God, not only
pardoned, but entirely cured of
the thirst for strong drink. We
believe them. The time will
come when religion will do
many things that we will not
now let it do. If there are
cases, and we are ready to point
thorn out, where conversion has
not only set the heart right but
revolutionized the body, why
not declare a new era ? What
inebriate asylums cannot ac
complish the Lord is ready to
accomplish. Give our religion
elbow-room, and it will reclaim
empty jails, and make poverty
a curiosity to look at. The ago
of miracles will come back
when the church of God will

REPORT OF THE EXAMINING COMMITTEE.
To Hon. IP. K. Hastings, Judge Vinton County
Common Pleas Court : ,
Your Committee, appointed to examine the Report
of tho Commissioners of Vinton County, 0., for tho
year ending Angust 30, 1873, do report that they
have examined the same and find it correct; except
one item of $50 allowed to T. A. Murray, for spacing

U. S. CLAYPOOLE, Pros, Att'y, E. N. BARNHILL,
Committee. Decmber 17, 1873.
Times are hard when money is scarce, good
when it is plenty. When speculation profits and
extravagance ruus riot, and fashions rules
supreme, and the people forget God, there are
who say the times are prosperous. But
from just such times, we have received our
visitation of fraud, corruption, embezzlement,
panic, prostration of trade, enforced idleness,
and all the alarms which now awaken dismay
hereand consternation there.
We have misused our prosperity and in
these days of financial adversity are bidden to
consider, and turn back and resume the good
old paths of honest work, just -economy and
prudent dealings. Should the present lesson
of the duly conned and faithfully practiced, it
will prove in the end to bo the beginning of
an era of genuine prosperity to our nation.
When things are at their worst, they are most
prepared to bo mended. And centaiuly a
courageous peoplcas the Americans are, will
fail to address themselves to the task of
rebuilding where there has been an over
throw.'' We, therefore, think while just now we are
going to school to experience and are being
chastised by the hand of adversity; affairs,
over whic there has been much lamentation,
and, in fact, steadily improving.
The immediate burden to be borne may in
be heavy, but it will toughen shoulders,
brace backs grown weak from self-indul-
;ence, and call into exercise the higher facul
which ever thrive best in seasons that
manhood by other than ficticious stand
But we shall sadly miss themeaning of the
present distress if we fail as a people, to find
it in a reproof of the inteiise devotion to pure
material interests, which has resulted in
temporary collapse. .We have all seen
comes of an attempt to serve God and
Mammon equally, or to serve Mammon alto
gether, and God not at all.
Matrimony in America.
In ideal matrimony the husband and wife
not absorbed into each other by any moans.
.They remain totally separate individuals, with
their own afms, desires, and loves, but
blending as it wero into ono whenever union
necessary, lhe wife in this marriage is no
slave or toy of her husband; but equal compan
ion, friend, and advisor, inspirer, stimulator,
even agitator. Him she meets with open,
frank eyes, not in the barbarous fashion of
Western Europe, abashed and submissive ; and
him she leads on to a higher and nobler life,
not administering to his base material com
and ease, but urging him ever onward. The
husband, knowing Lor tn be his equal in
every respect, mental and moral, naturally re
gards her with tho deeper veneration gthat she
physically his inferior. This . ideal condi
tion, according to the account of many foreign
observers, actually exists somewhere in this
country where wo-have never seen stated but
probably not in Connecticut, Indiana, or Illinois.
