NATUR ALIZ ATION.
The Union League club, of New
York city, some weeks ago began nn
agitation for an Improvement of our
naturalization laws, with the purpose
f of preventing the dangers that arise
irotu uie use or tue oauot, oy ignorant
and dangerous classes of foreigners who
are crowding our ports more thickly
than ever. A memorial to Congress
has been prepared, as that body has
the right to legislate In that direction.
To secure protection from threatened
daugers, the memorial requests Con
gress to enact laws that shall restrict
the power of naturalization to the
Federal courts, which shall require a
longer residence In tho Ualted States
for the naturalization of Immigrants
than that now required ; that all appli
cations for naturalization shall be In
the baud-writing of the applicant ;
and that the applicant must also be
able to read and speak as well as write
the Eugllsh language. It nlso aiks
that any citizen shall be allowed to

We think that this movement is a
proper one, mnro than that, it Is a
needed one; and in connection with it
wo need another movement to shut
out certain classes entirely. Hundreds
of thousands of naturalized citizens
and native-born Americana, sharo this
way. Thousands of immigrants reach
this laud every month who are as
undesirable in overy respect no the
Chinese ; perhaps vastly more so.
Tho Ilarrlsburg Patriot Is right and
patrlotlo in saying, "If wo cannot
determine who shall and who shall not
enter the country we might as well
declare to the world that wo aro help
less to coutrol our own aflairs."
But our laws as to naturalization
ought to be more stringent with those
whom we have no wish to exclude from
citizenship. A glance at the various
laws that have been framed on this
subject is interesting. Such laws
engaged tho attention of the early law
makers. We lluu that au act was
passed by tho First Congress, in 1700,
requiring two years' residence befole a
foreigner could become a citizen. This
time was extended, in 1705,
to Ave, and In 1793 in the
midst of the excitement of parties over
preferences for France or England to
fourteen j ears. That was perhaps tho
wrong time to adopt n measure of the
kind, but the measure, if adopted in
the beginning, might have been a
prudeutone. In 1802 under Jefferson
the preeent limit of live years was
adopted. The law of 1802 required at
least three years' residence before a
declaration on oath of purpose to
become a citizen of the United States
and to renounce allegiance to any
foreign prince or state could be filed.
This was changed to two years in 1821.
The great defect of our naturalization
laws is their lack of uniformity in
operation. Congress may make u
uniform rule of naturalization, but so
long as the magistrate who administers
tho law may or may not be a federal
otilcial there is fining to be great un
certainty in tho administration. Then,
too, a system so little uuiform as to
permit a man to vote on his landing
from the emigrant ship, as iu Louis
lana, while other states adhere to the
spirit of the 'constitution and require
at least two years' residence before
voting needs overhauling somewhere
A longer residence with more vigorous
demands as to certificates and regis
t ration, seems Indispensable.

WHAT THE SGRIBES SEE AND HEAR
Rev. William Powiok Preacbes the
Last of a Series of Interesting
Sermons in tbo Methodist
The closing sermon of the series on the
"Voyago of Life" was delivered last night
in tho Methodist Episcopal church. A
brief account was given of tho feeling..
wiih which-passengers view the other shore
and of tho various landmarks that pass un
der swift roviow botweon "Tho cow, tho
bull and tho calf " and Liverpool, and of
tho manner in which passengers are landed
at Queenstown and Liverpool. Ono of the
thoughts suggested by theeo things is that
death Is an arrival as woll as a depirturo.
Having a desire lo depart and to bo with
Christ." Nevertheless from tho earthly
side it can never bi anything else than a
departuro. "Not that wo would ho un
clothed but clothed upon that mortality
might bo swallowed up of lifo." Our ar
rival puts an end to life's perils. The most
c mfldont seaman is never quito certain
what tho outcome may be till ho is actually
In port. So there is just enough room for
uncertainty in tho voyngo of lifo lo keep
our hope from rising abovo and beyond
"hope," until it ripens into fu 1 fruition on
tho other shore. The samo apostle who
wroto "I am persuaded that noithor death
nor lifo shall bo ablo to sepomlo
mo from tho luvo of God," also wroto
keep under my body." Arr val on tho
oilier side cloars up our ideas concerning it
All tho guido books ovor written cannot
givo such a clear conception as a glanco of
the ojo. Yet upon reading tho guido book
n the presonce of tho object described we
find ourselves unablo to improve tho de
scription. So with our old guido book, tho
Biblo. It now soems full of obscurLy
loo accounts ol neavon teem very mys
terious, but whon wo- read them on the
banks of tho rivor in the clearer light
heaven.wo shall be ready to confess thatthe
book could not bo improvod. The dilli
culty now is not a lack of light but a lack
of sight. The vocabulary of earth cannot
expross tho full glories of heavon. God Is
limited in his efforts to niako them know
by our finite faculties. In answer to iho
question "why do not aniiels and spirits
silence our doubts by spoaking to us In un
minliikable tones" the question was askt
wuy do not wo speak to tho myriads
animalcule in tho drop of water so us to
make thorn understand that thero is a lar
ger and grander sphere of lifo abovo them
in which we livo and move and havo ou
boing ? Tho answer is becauso of a want
of apprehension on tboir part. Tho su

may talk but thoy havo no ears. Wo aro

by the limitations of thoir nature so it

over the impassable gulf and part to meet
