Evening Post. Mr. Beecher on Marriage and Divorce.
The following editorial, entitled
"The Christian Law of. MarriasreJ

derstood to be from Mr. " Beecher'i
penderives " especial interest from
the fact thafe It appeared at the time
when Mr. Beecher was being severe
ly criticised in certain quarters for
officiating at the death-bed marriage
of Albert D. Richardson and Mrs
Alcir arland, and within the term
during which, according to Tilton,
he was guilty of criminal -relations
with Mrs. Tilton: '
That Christ taught a more spirit
uai religion tnarr JHoses appears in
many cases recorded by the Evan
gelists, in which Christs . ideas came
into open conflict with' the. Mosaic
law, or went beyond it and above it
heights ot holiness nearer to God
and harder of attainment to, man
ine cnnstian Jaw .-.ot ; marriage,
wnicn was aenverea in tne sermon
on the mount, is a signal illustration
v.. tuv duiivi cjjii a iuanijr ui vul IB"
tianity. Said the Divine Teacher,
as his-words are gives by Mat
thew. ; .
' "Ye have heard that it " was said
by them of olden time "Thon 6halt
not commit adultery" (Ex. xx., 14
Lent, v., 18); but I say you that
whosoevever looketh on a woman to
lust after her hath committed adul
tery, with her already in : her heart.
Ami if thy right hand offend thee,
pluck it out, and cast it from thee;
ior it, is proniaoie ior tnee that one
of thy members should perish, and
not that thy body should be cast in
to hell. .. And. if thy rid hand "of
fend tnee, cut it off, and cast it from
thee; for it is profitable .for thee
that one of thy members should
perish and be cast into hell. It hath
oeensaid: " w nosoever . shall tut
away nis wue, let mm give her ;
writing of divorcement (Deut.
xxivi.,) ; but I'say unto you that who
soever shall put away his wife, sav
ing ior me cause of fornication,
causeth her to commit adultery,
and whosoever shall marrv W that.
is uivurueu cummiuetn adultery,
i These words are blazing with the
purity and penetration of Heaven
They shine and pierce like the very
eye oi God. Under their influence
we are convinced that sin Is a thing
of the heart (not necessarily of the
will), and that the mastery of our
passions, by their crucifixion, if need
be, is an essential condition of
Christliness, and that Christliness in
itself is well worthy of the sacrifice.
The crown far more than compen
sates for the cross. Then comes the
divine idea of marriage, which is in
dissoluble till death, except for one
single cause; and, in this case, be it
remembered, on the ground that the
crime threatens the world with the
subversion of the holy institution,
and all the horrors of unbridled lust.
Adulterers as the mortal enemies of
Christian marriage, are to be treat
ed as unworthy of the relation. Di
vorce for adultery is retribution for
sin, and , shows at oncer the. .divine
sense'of.thej aanctitv i of marriage,
and the divine wrath against its vi
olation. And all this because God
himself is love; and that the love
that makes a true marriage is di
vine. The Jewish teachers had heard
that Jesus taught "with authority
and not as the scribes. So they
made a test f marriage-probably
because they f,U thatthere was a
higher doctrine of it than that
which was taught by Moses. The
oral 1 18 aU1 the Word9 mon-
"The Pharisees al
Ili.n --- vanie unto

put away his wifB lor
i h anri and said unto
them. Have ye not heard that
he which made them at the begin
ning made them male ami female
and said, 'For this cause shall a man
leave father and mother, and aliall
cleave to his wife, and they twain
shall be one flesh? .What therefore,
God has joined together let no mm!
put asunder. They say unto him,
'Why did Mos'es thon command fo
give a writing of divorcement and
put her away 4 Hesaith unto mem,
Moses, because of the hardness of
your hearts, suffered you to put
away your wives, but from the be
ginning it was not so. And I say
unto you, whosoever shall p-it his
wife, except it be for foniitication,
and 6hall marry another, cotumit
teth adultery, and whoso marrieth
her that is put away, doth commit
adultery. His disciples say unto
him, 'If the case of the man be so
with his wife, it is not good to mar
ry.' Buthe said nnto them, 'All
men cannot receive this saying save
thev to whom it is given."
The disciples felt that this was
the higher law. It was too high
for them. It demanded more than
they were willing to give. They
had not even reached that point at
which the divine beauty of Christ's
idea of marriage is discernible. "If
the case of the man be so with his
wife," said they, "it is not good to
marry." What is he to do who finds
his wife sour tempered instead- of
sweet, silly instead of fascinating,
extravagant instead of thrifty, old
and faded instead of young and fair?
May not he cease to be her husband
and marry again? No while she lives
if she be not an adulteress. He has
changed her condition. They
two are one flesh. . As long as she
is free from tbe crime of adultery
God holds her free from its penalty.
Thus it is with the man in reference
to the woman. But society also has
its claims. And of all the laws that
lie at the foundation of the real pro
gress which the world has made and
of which it is capable, none lies
deeper, or is more dependent upon
it, than the law of Christian mar
riage, aud at home, with all its ines
timable relations, is involved in
Christs idea of marriage. .
But the Savior recognized woman
as a separate nd equal agent iu
marriage and divorce. He remind
ed his questioners of an older law
than that of Moses the law of cre
ation. "So God created man in
his own image; in the image of God
created he him; male and female cre
ated he them." Christ, therefore,
held the woman not only amenable
to his law of marriage, but also com
petent to enforce it, if it were need
ful, against her husband.
We learn in Mark that after he
had answered the Pharisees his: dis
ciples asked him again of the same
matter in . the house, and, then he
thus reversed the positions of the two
actors: "If a woman shall put away
her huRhnnd. and be married to an
other, she coramitteth adultery."
We do not believe that this means
that a woman has no right to ask
society to step between her and her
husband if his conduct is unbeara
ble. This is another thing from be
ing discontented with her marriage
relation because she wants to marry
another man. Her husband may
be so cruel that her life is embitter
ed, or even in danser. He may be
such a profligate that she cannot be
lieve that it is her duty to live in his
company. He may be such a spend
thrift that she is deprived of the
necessaries of life for herself and her
children. Some women have car
ried such crosses to the gate of heav
en. But they should do it of their
own choice not bv legal compul
sion. The separation which, the
court grant are. therefoie, allowa
ble. But they should not indeed
they cannot annul the marriage of
to marrv a?ain while the other is
living. Separation is one thing, di
vorce is another. This, as we un
derstand it. is the Christian law of
It need not be expected that soci
ety-will live up to this standard,
for society does not accept Christ as
its leader. .But even the most profli
gate would hesitate to lower forever
the Christian ideas of this relation.
They see something an" its beauty
and import, although they resist its
influence. .. Surely the Church of
Christ should glory in maintaining
The Champion Corn Crop of Nebraska.
: The soil and climate of Nebraska
are most favorable to farming. In
dian corn grows luxuriantly, and
the smaller cereals also thrive. The
productions of Nebraska do not ap
pear in the United states census re
ports before 1860; and then the
whole corn production of the Terri
tory which was much larger than
the State, its western limit being the
summit of the Rock Mountains-
was 1,482,080 bushels. In 1870 the
corn crop of the State of Nebraska,
the western limit ot which is the
base of the Rocky Mountains was
4,736,710 bushels; and the Agricul
tural returns of., the Department at
Washington for 1873, gave the corn
crop for that year, which was a bad
year for Indian corn, at 21,000,000
These figures exhibit the rapid
progress of agriculture in Nebraska,
for what may be said . of corn is
equally trueof the other prod notions.
In the fertile soil and genial climate
of the State, corn yields abundantly,
and is a safe crop. ' There are brok
en lands where, year after year, the
produce has averaged 80 bushels to
the acre; but this is outdone by the
Champion corn crop of 1873.
i ihe affidavits on which the $50
premium for 1873 was awarded, have
i"iist been published by the State
5oard of Agriculture. The owner
was Magnus M. Nelson, of Cass Co.
His champion crop was grown on
a field of 35 acres the second cro
on the same ground, which was prai
rie broken in 1871. Ihe plowin
cost f 1 25 per acre; the planting 45
cents; the cultivating 11 80; the
harvesting $1 25; total expense per
acre 14 75. 1 he yield was an aver
age of 91f bushels per acre, which
was certainly worth not less than 40
cents per bushel on the farm. ihe

Premature Burial. In the cem
eteries of Mainz, Frankfort, Munich,
and other German cities the dead
are exposed for a certain number of
days before interment,- to guard
against premature burial. The bod
ies lie in the coflins, with the luls re
moved, in a large dead-house, a wire
attached to the extremities of the
corpse, and connected with a bell, bo
that the least motion would reveal
animation, and bring aid and succor
once. Ceitain medical watchers
are within call both day and night,
should the bell be rung, and thus
every possible nssistance is secured
Marvtlous tales are told by the

opinion that incipient putrefaction

The Governor of Nebraska on Grasshoppers.
His Excellency, Robert Furnas,
Governor of Nebraska, has had
close inquiry made as to the condi
tion of the crops of that fctate, and
has issued a proclamation to the peo
ple embodying the results. He says
that information derived from the
several counties (as well as exten
sive personal observation) warrants
the assestion. that though the crops
are shorter than for several years
before, there is not a failure, and no
ground for serious alarm as to the
general prosperity of the State.
The droughty agriculture year,
which has affected the whole United
States, and the greater part of
Europe, has had its effect on Ne
braska; and small grain; therefore,
not yielding as was expected at the
end of J une, are only an average in
yield and quality. The small grains
were harvested before the grashop
pers appeared; but, as in States
north and south this year, the grass
hoppers have done damage to the
farmers to a considerable extent.
Happily for Nebraska, however,
very little but corn has been sub
ject to their ravages; and corn is by
no means destroyed, but will range
from half a crop" to (possibly) al
most an entire failure in a few pla
ces. The fruit crop of Nebraska is
more in quantity than ever before,
but, as a rule, the fruit is inferior in
size; and taking the whole range of
agricultural" products hay, grain,
vegetables, roots and fruit the
State has never before produced so
great an aggregate crop. No cases
needing relief are yet reported; but
at a number of the poiuts on the
extreme western border, help will
be required and not varied, and who
were depending on their corn crop
alone for subsitence. Even those
who have to suffer, however, show
no disposition to abandon their
homesteads. They need employ
ment; and in the case of the home
steaders, have to quit their land for
a time to work in the towns. Says
Mr. Furnas: "The more fortunate
of our own citizens will meet the
former emergency bv affordinar em
ployment, and Congress, which alone
possesses the power, will, no doubt,
promptly meet the second emergen
Why Did They Go.
- A few days ago Victoria C. Wood
hull, her free-love husband, Col
Blood, her sister, mother and
daughter, arrived in New York, from
California they having traveled thi
distance to tell Beecher's white
washing committee what they knew
about "nest-hiding." Upon their
arrival, Victoria was promptly ar
rested, on the charge of obtainin
money under false pretense, she ha v
ing appropriated to her own use the
sum of four hundred dollars, left
with her, while running a banking
establishment on Wall btreet, by
lady friend, for investment. Throng!
some "hook or crook," she was per
mitted the privilege of remaining at
liberty, without bailr until the foi
lowing day, promising then to re
turn, and answer to the charge
made against her. ; But she failed to
put in an appearance, having sailed
on the steamer Lafayette, for France
almost immediately after the ad
journing of tbe court before which
she was tried, her mother, sister
Tennie, daughter, Col. Blood accom
panying her. It is said they carried
with them f 15,000 in gold, present
ed by persons connected with
Plymouth Church. Surely, "speech
in silver," but "silence in gold.

iiOcoMonvE uaprices. it is per
fectly well known to experienced en
gineers that if a dozen different loco
motive engines were made at the
same time, ot the same power, for
the same purpose, of like material
n the same factoiy, each of these
locomotive engines would come out
with its own peculiar whims and
ways, only ascertainable by experi
ence.. Une engine will take a great
deal ot coal and water at once; an
other will not hear to such a thing,
insists on being coaxed by spadefulls
and bucketfulls. One is disposed to
start off when required at the top of
nisspeea; anotner must nave a nine
more time to warm at his work and
get well into it. These pecnliarities
are so accurately managed by skill
ful drivers that only particular men
can pursuade engines to do their
best. It would , seem as if some of
these excellent monsters declared on
being brought out from the stable.
"If it's Smith who is to drive, I won't
go; if it is" my friend Stokes, I'm
agreeable to anything." All loco
motive engines are low spirited in
damp and foggy weather. They
uave a great satisiaction in their
work when the air is crisp and fros
ty. At such a time they are very
cneeiut ana DrisK, but they strongly
object to haze and mists. These are
points of character on which they

Domesticating the Zebra. In
the last "Bulletin of the Society of
Acclimation" of 1'aris there is an ar
ticle giving a full account of the ex
perience of the society with the wild
zebras committed to its charge. Be
fore the siege of Paris, experiments
had been made in taming these am
mals with partial success. The first
attempt was made with bits and
reins through which an electric cur
rent ran. vv nen restive a severe
shock tamed at once, for a time, the
most refractory, rmally, however,
this mode was given up, and the ze
bras durini? the siege were eaten, to
gether with other animals of the So
ciety, and the rats, cuts and dogs of
that suffering city. In 1872 the men
agerie was restocked, and the zebras

VICIOUS. -o man uumu go near iiieui.
After a little while they allowed
themselves to be approached and

At present they do all the ordinary
light, hauling for the society, and are
found to work well and steadily.

LINESS HAS NO EQUAL.
It saves that dreaded daift task of ehakinz ud

THEY MAKE NO NOISE.
This bed is not only a luxurr to the healthr ocr-
sod, but it ia especially so to the Invalid, who
Irom Minora or indnnitv are more or less confined
to their beds. One can scarcely realize the relief
ana com ton a sick person enjoys in being changed
irum a common oea lo one Ol tnese.
I have Certificates from the pastors of every
congregation in tne village, and rrom our bankers,
physicians, merchants, hotel-keeDers and others
