THE PREACHERS IN POLITICS.
The preachers are "talking politics" a
good deal this year, and much of what they
say deserves the earnest attention . of their
hearers. Recently a number of preachers
have given their opinion of Cleveland's can
didacy, and we commend the extracts which
we give below to the attention of our read
ers who think that a vote for President
should be cast with its moral significance in
Rev. Richard S. Storrs, D. D., of the
Church of the Pilgrims in Brooklyn, says:
The suggestion that a man whose history
is stained with admitted licentiousness may
yet properly and deliberately be put at the
head of the natioa must certainly be scouted.
Forgiveness is one thing. Popular corona
tion is quite another. - Ethics must surely
take precedence of politics. It would seem
to be, certainly, a grave, offence against the
family, against the public honor for chaste
womanhood, against the divine law of
purity, against the essential welfare of the
State, to contribute to elevate to the highest
office in the enft of his countrymen a man
with a loose woman in his train, and an ille
gitimate son. I can hardly imagine anything
of worse example to the multitude of young"
men who are dangerously tempted, and who
need whatever succor to their virtue may
come from a supporting and imperative
public sentiment. It would seem -to make
the nation at large, if not the positive patron
of lewdness, at least the careless apologist
Rev. Dr. Vincent, the Chautauquan leader,
His (the President's) position is a point of
moral power wnetner ne will have it so or
not. The head of the republic stands in
blaze of light. His personal habits, his con
versation, his appearance and dress, his anec
dotes, tne details ot nis domestic lite, are
discussed and quoted and commented upon
in- the far-off farm houses and in the village
taverns and groceries. a lie second beloved
martyr President of ours, if he left the
nation no political heritage, left it what
may prove in tne end to be or even
more value the record of his faith and Chris
tian patience and courage. Suppose sn the
other hand that the man is a drunkard or
libertine. The simple fact, known as all
othef facts of his life, is that the weight of
his authority is thrown into the scale on the
side of vice. The fact tells on social morali
ty, and tells disastrously.
Rev. Dr. Bartol, of Boston, said last Sun
day: I am an Independent. Heaven forbid
I should be a malignant 1 As a Christian
would overlook; but I cannot extol or lift
citizen's finger to exalt Mr. Cleveland.
Rev. Dr. A. H. Plumb, of the Walnut ave-.
nue Congregational church of Boston, preach
ed last Sunday on "What the election of such
a man as Cleveland would mean." In the
course of his remarks he put' the matter thns
Sucn a cnoice would violently misrepre
sent the American sentiment as exhibited in
the well ordered life of millions of virtuous
homes. It would proclaim to all lands the
utter falsehood that this foremost Christian
nation of the world, long the asylum of .many
of the opprassed, the example and guide of
peoples struggling to rise, the almoner ot the
rich blessings of Christian civilization to all
benighted races, is yet indifferent to the sa
credness of marriage and the sanctity of the
home, principles which lie at the foundation
of all our prosperity, and which are dearer
than all others to the American heart. The
proposal of such a "coronation" of impurity
and dishonor comes like a blow m the face
to every man who' thrills at the thought of
his wife, or his daughter, his sister or his
mother. Against it rise the common in
stincts of noble manhood and pure woman
hood throughout the land in a tide of indig
nant remonstrance of such increasing volume
and sucn gathering power as to bear down
and sweep away not only all effort of sophis
tical apologists for impurity, but their au
thors also, the apologists themselves, thence
forth to be covered with public odium as
long as their names shall last. How blind
are such apologists to think they can stand
against sucn a storm.
All this, and much more which might be
quoted, shows that Christian teachers are
doing their duty in this crisis. It is not sur
prising that they are so outspoken against

In a speech delivered at Beaufort, South
Carolina, the other day Senator Wade
1 Hampton showed that he was the first man
in America who had recommended that the
State of South Carolina should confer the
right of suffrage upon Us colored citizens in
speech made by him in 1867, when the
Governors of some of the northern States,
but more especially Governor Morton, of In
diana, had declared them unfit for the exer
cise of that right.
Some of the provisions of the will of an
eccentric Canadian physician named Dunlap
are as follows: To my eldest sister, Joan, my
five-acre field, to console her for being mar
ried to a man she is obliged to henpeck. To
my second sister, Sally, the cottage that
stands beyond the said field, with its garden,
because, as no one is likely to marry her, it
will be large enough to lodge her. To my
sister Lydia, my silver drinking cup, for rea
sons known to herself. -To my brother-in-law
Jack, a punch-bowl, because he will do
credit to it. To my brother-in-law Christo
pher, my best pipe, out of gratitude that he
married my sister Maggie, whom no man of
taste would have taken. To my friend -John
Caddell, a silver teapot, that, being afflicted
with a slatternly wife, he may therefrom
drink tea to his comfort.
The free traders try hard to make the
farmers believe ihat they get no benefit from
protection, but the facts are against their ef
forts. Compare these figures of manufac

The prosperity of the farmers of the State
has gone hand in hand with the increased pros
perity of the manufacturers and their employes
Consul Shaw of Manchester says: "I be
lieve that clothing similar to that which En
glish operatives wear can be bought in the
United States at the same prices. There is a
great deal of misleading sentiment about this
fact, for the reason that the cost of clothing
worn by American working people is known
to be more than that paid by operatives here;
but sufficient importance is not given to the
superior quality and make-up of the former.
Give me the same style, make and quality
and we can equal the English in cheapness,if
not undersell them. Surprising. as this will
appear, a visit to a great ready-made cloth
ing house in New York will abundantly, ver
ify the statement here made." "It will
seem," he says, "that the American working
men do not suffer so much for want of cheap
European clothing as foreign philanthropists
endeavor to prove. In any case it is impossi
ble to have American wages and European
condition at the same time."
The charge of Mr. Schnrz that the pension
office was used in the Ohio canvass to secure
votes for the Republican party by giving
preference in the settlement of pension claims
to those claimants who would vote the Re
publican ticket has been thoroughly disposed'
of. Mr. Everett P. Wheeler of New York.in
behalf of the Civil Service Reform associa
tion, wrote to President Arthur inviting his
attention to the charge, and asking that it
might be investigated. The president re
ferred it to the acting commissioner of pen
sions, who has charge of the bureau during
Commissioner Dudley's absence. He "an
swers that no such preferences have been
given, and no directions to that effect have
been received from the commissioner by
himself or any of his subordinates in the
office. He justly says that such discrimina
tion would be criminal, and as further evi
dence that the charges are untrue, he gives
detailed statements of the business of the
pension office for the past few months, show
ing that the Ohio claimants have had no ad
vantage over those from other States.

Dr. Canepa, a physician in Genoa, was at
tacked with cholera, and before remedial
measures could take effect passed rapidly
into the algide . stage, and to all outward
seeming ceased to live. His death was duly
announced by the practitioner in attendance,
and his family had performed the lost offices,
pending those of the undertaker, whose ar
rival they were awaiting in a room adjoining
that in which the body of Dr. Canepa, de
cently covered with a white sheet, was lying.
Suddenly the door between the two cham
bers were seen to open, and the ghastly fut
ure of Dr. Canepa, arrayed in burial vesture,
presented itself to the thunderstruck family.
In a feeble, scarcely audible voice he com
plained of having been left' so long without
attendance (six hours, in fact, having elapsed
since he was given up and laid out as dead).
He was immediately replaced in bed and
every restorative practiced on him till a
physician could be obtained to perform Pa

exclaim: "Veil! veil!! do deglare! Olt goon,

"Ain't got no time ter talk long wid yon

Uncle Billy conld not refrain from talking
when he heard several persons near by dis
cussing the recent serious rows at colored
comp-meetings in various States. This con
versation was commenced, in fact, as a sort
of feeler, in the hope the old darkey would
be drawn into one of his curious arguments.
The desired effect was produced. Uncle
Billy put his basket down, cast his eye to
wards the sun to make sure he had a little
time to speak and then said:
"I speck yawl read that biznes in some
paper, borne papers is gittin' so scan ious
dat vou can 'bleeve nuthin' you sees in 'em
ceptm' yon was aar wnen oe ining nappen,
seed de man write it, an' watch dat some
yuther man ain't come in in de night an

My boss says dat some papers tell so many
different tales 'bout de same thing he dunno
when he got de straight story. But taint no
use in vou men, niggers ner white men, ter
tell me 'bout no nigger camp-meetm s.
done deen dar; 'an I ain't sayin' dat dem
papers art hit de nail on de head when dey
tell vou 'bout all de debilment dat go on.
But is dey tellin' you who is ter blame when
a rumpus am raised? No, dat dey ain't.
Now, sometime de fuss start 'bout er gal;
sometime it grow of talk as to who own
sartin lot er watermillions: and den again
sometime de preacher hissef widout knowin'
it raise er row an' make libly times outen

tried ter be meek as a lam', an' my ole'

rollin' his eyes roun', an' arter a while he gun

an' reckly he throwed his eye-balls right at
me right squar' on me an' he pint his fing

as he could, an' say, 'git np off'n . dat no

ef dey am one thing what sturbs me more'n
nuther its to hab er man soy I'se er lazy nig

as dey make 'm; an' my ole mars ter always
could put his pennunce in me; an' I won't
gwine let no nigger preacher look right squar'
at me, an' 'sore dat big congregation soy ter
me, 'git up offin dat do-nuffin' stool.' I jump,
I did, on' I holler out dat no preacher- can't
make no fun outen me, on' I think it mighty
po'way to do anyway. He say ef de cap fit

kaze dot prercher stiddea preachin' de unmix

track an' come passin' remarks on me. "
Uncle Hilly paused, and the nsn-venaer at
once declared the old negro lacked courage to
resent the imaginary wrong that had been
done him. This caused nncle Billy to ex
plain: "I ain't sayin' who got bruised np," his
eyes meanwhile being uwited on his Teuton
ic listener; "but I say dat tent come down,
de meetin' was broke np, some of de niggers
was in de trees, an' yuthers tuk to de swamps;
an, all kas 1 done bin pmted at as er lazy
nigger. I tell yer, gemmen, I had fren's nt
dat meet'in', sho'."
You done des 'zaefcly right," said a colored
friend of Uncle Billy's who had been a breath
less listner. "Ef I had baen dar you kin bet
I'd er tuk yo' part. 'Deed I would."
'"Cullud rokes," continued uncle uuiy, "is
blamed fer lots er thmgs,but 'ceptin' you afa

The old man suddenly graDoea nis oasKei.

SUMNER'S UNHAPPY MAUKIAGK.
A Friend's Account or nis Snort-Lived
From the Boston Courier.
A correspondent writes a long letter in
reply to a paragraph that appeared some time
ago concerning the widow of Charles Snm-
ner. in tnac paragrapn it was siatea tnai
there was always a mystery about the divorce
that Mrs. Mason obtained from Mr. Sumner.
This correspondent declares there was no
mystery about it to those who knew both
parties to the marriage, and, among . other
"Mrs. Mason had money and beauty, but
was not an intellectual woman, 'and did not
belong to the circle of Boston society to
which Mr. Sumner had the entree. She was
spoken of as a frivilons, fashionable, society
loving woman, ambitious of the position in
Washington society which a marriage with
Charles Sumner would giva her. But she had
the innocent,, winning ways which many
pretty women, when they have an object in
view, exercise, and with them she accom
plished her object and became Mrs. Sumner.
She had married for Washington.and intend
ed to eniov it. and when Mr. Sumner, who
did not dance, would mildly suggest that it
was late, that he had important dnties for the
next day in the Senate and would like to go
horns to rest, she would tell mm to go and
she would come when she had danced her list
down, in air. aumner s eyes this was to in
decorous for encurance, and, too, with the
prestige his own endowments had - given him
in politics and literature, he naturally sup
posed there was an attraction about him
superior to balls and society beans. His self-
esteem was wounded and his sense of pro-

Sumner chose a cavaler who could attend her
"By the advice of friends Mr. Sumner en
duren his wife's whim for gayety, hoping one
arr.nl rl he sufficient: bnt when
the actions of his wife, provoked the voice of
scandal he sought redress from official quar
ters. The youth whom Mrs. Sumner had
chosen for a favorite was one of those young
er English sons who are attached to the Brit
ish Legation that the position may give them
opportunities in society here which they
could not otherwise have. Mr. Sumner rep
resented to the then Secretary of State that
this voung Englishman had stepped beyond
his diplomatic duties, and that his conduct
was unbecoming a gentleman and represent
ative of her majesty. The matter was report;
ed to the home government, and Earl New
castle, a personal friend of both Mr. Sumner
and the Secretary of State, in his official
character as Secretary of Foreign Affairs re
called the young countryman. This gave
offense in many ways to Mrs. Sumner; she
lost an admirer who was her constant
attendant, it deprived her of her personal
liberty of action, and implied that her con
duct hod met the disapproval of her husband,
and forthwith she asked to be returned 10
her father-in-law, in Boston. It was after
ward determined she should join a sister
living in Europe, and there she has been
with her daughter, whose eligible marriage
was noticed a little over a year since. The
Sumner marriage and denouement weie
society talk for a season. Mr. Sumner had-
the sympathy or his menus tnrougnout ine
whole, and their approval of his course in
requiring the dismissal of the English
attache. After Mrs. Sumner's departure he -returned
to the society of his more intimate
friends and appeared the same as in his
