may bo looked for.
The politicians of Kentucky arc be
coming excited over the approaching

The words most frequently in the
mouths of the democrats who advorato
are: " Let in unite with repub
licans like Sumner, Trumbull and

structions say, when they bid us,
' the democratic party is vile, Ins been
' wrong persistently in the past, and will

' the American people in tho future"
The passives would have the party get
down upon iu kncc3 and entreat those
men to permit democrats to voto for the
politician they may iudicato a tho per
son who should bo president. Hut now
comes Senator Trumbull, one of the Po
called liberal republicans, and hiiys. " I

Trumbull has turned his back upon us
and Sumner has also expressed his de
termination to fight his battle against
Grant insido the republican party
Schurz, aloue, is left as an encourage
meut to the anxious passive heart, and
ho is continually running from one po-

indicating no fixed purpose for the fu

striving to accomplish them. But I do

The poet, Longfellow, has astonished
tho literary world by publishing, unherald
ed, a new poem. It is entitled " Tho Di
vino Tragedy," und, in tho languago
of the Now York Tribune, "is found
ed on the liltory of the man
of sorrow" m related In the
artless naratlves of tho Kvangollsts, and
alms only to reprodueo, In tho light of
the Imagination, tho significant facts
which form tho gospol of Christian ox
porienco. Tho poet has performed his
task In the 'cbasta and awful spirit of
dovotion.' No presumptuous endeavor is
made to adorn tho sevoro simplicity of the
voncrablo rccerd with tho graces of mod
ern composition. The very words of tho
popular version have been retained, to a
largo extent, and whero their placo Is sup
plied by the languago of tho poet, tho
unity of spirit is preserved by the Scrip
tural cast of expression. A sacred antique
flavor is thus Imparted to tho wholo drama
which betrays the air of 1 Jordan' groves
of palm' quito as much as of the classic
shades of Cambridge
We have space only for tho final scene
of the tragedy, In which the.poet employs
a rovercnt touch, not rashly Intruding up
on mystorsis " which tho angels dosiro to
look into," and adding nothing to tho sa
cred narrative beyond the license of sym

THE llosroN KADIUAL CL01I.
Tills club has recently held a meeting,
n which Mr. Cranch read a poem entitled
"Tho lllrd and tho Hell," in which ho de
nounced the "creeds and formulas.''
Dr. Oartol said it seemed to him the great
test question about any truth was, "Can
It bo sung ? can It bo set to music ?" The
words of Jesus were of themselves rhyth
mical ; they were a song of hope, a chant
of courage; but this test would make sad
work of dogmatic thoology. We should
have trouble to sing Calvinism. Election
is not musical, nor is everlasting punish
John Dwight Insisted that Calvinism
could be sung. The St. Mattbow Passion
Music of Iiach, one of tho loftiest and
most inspired utterances of musical
genius, ho said, was literally a singing of
Calvinism in all its details.
Mr. Samuel Longfellow remarked that
the Free Iloliglonlsts had given them
selves to nature and woro ready to trust to
tho ideas and emotions native to tho human
Then Sir. I'ottor recurred to Dr. Uar-
tol's statemont thatlCalvInism could not bo
sung and asked on which shelf wo were to
put "l'nradlso Lost."
Dr. Hartol said that he roferred only to
tho dogmas of Calvinism. Kvory faith
can be sung, but not every dogma, and tho
flvo points of Calvin ho found as unmusi.
cal as tbo Five Points of New York.
Mr. Towno bolievod that great works
and great truths slug tbcmsolovs as natur :
ally as the morning stars sang our crea
tion. In Calvin can bo found thoughts
breathing a pure ipirltual melody; and

they fall from them they bceomo less lo
