Necessity of Radical Reform.
These are the days when the great national
watch-word is ‘"reform"—glorious, gigantic
“reform”—and great and good men are bend
ing all the god-like energies of their souls to
this stupendous work of national purification.
It is well to fight and die for the holy cause
of human freedom and pure government; but
bv and by, when the last shackles have fallrn
from the strong limbs of the bondman, and
the scales from the eyes even of democratic! ?)
editors, we want men of strength and party
to wield the golden wmid of pure govern
ment; and looking around upon the rising
generation, our heart grows sick with sorrow
and disgust, to see marks of imbecility upon
forms that should be stalwart with youthful
▼Igor and glowing with noble ambition. If we
desire to see our land the peaceful abiding
place of truth and liberty, lit “to bear up the
ark of the Lord,” our only hope is in radical
reform. Only true and noble men can make
and sustain a pure government We want
practical leginlation upon the education of
youth. We want law's for the protection of
health and sinew and morals, ns well as the
baser protection of property. The old Spar
tan lawgiver understood this, when he made
laws for the government of infants in the cra
dle, as the only sure foundation of a pure and
symmetrkca) government; and if the grace of
the Gospel had enlighteued the massive wis
dom of Lycurgas, he would have stood as a
beacon light to all generations; aud amid the
darkness of heathen night, his strict adherence
to principle and virtue is a reproach to the
factious rulers of modern Christian times, who
boh! in their hands the welfare of an enerva
ted community. The sturdy and invincible
Spartans have become a proverb of majesty
and prowess to all ages. Lycurgas was brave;
he was a Spartan, and he dared to make and
enforce such laws as he knew would best pro
mote the public weal, undaunted by the taunts
of silk-gowned opulence, and the puling cry of
“precedent,” “Slate rights,” or “Constitution
as it is.” And was that “iron code” a failure ?
It stood for full five hundred years, a monu
ment of national grandeur.
The American people are fast sinking into
the Imbecile and agitable state of the French
nation. Why is this? We were a sturdy race
and strong. What has caused our declension,
—this morbid languor and unnatural excite
ment—this mental and physical dehility of our
and alcohol/
Ii this a hackneyed theme, a dotard's talc ?
Look around upon our young men, and be
aghast at the hollow eyes and shrunken limits
and sallow complexion that mark our notion
al decay. See that group of lads, not in their
teens, clustered about tile ale-shop bar, treat
ing each other on foaming “beer.'’ Mark that
child scarce ten years old, leaning with feeble
attitude against a lamp-post, smoking a cigar!
Ilia cheeks are blue, his form attenuated by
the snbtle poison; his case is hopeless; and the
debilitating effect of the weed lakes away the
power to reform. It turns manly energy into
a feverish thirst for stimulants; it changes the
aspirations of noble manhood Into passions of
sell-indulgence; and young men, like Byron,
turn a noble life that was givcu them for high
and lofty purposes, into a vain pursuit of sen
sual pleasure—and all from this early taste for
stimulauts. Men know this and mourn over
the early folly which bound them with the
hopeless gyves of a moral slavery. The morn
ing of the day is now couie, when the word
“radical” has ceased to be a reproach, and
“prohibition” and “abolition" are no longer
heretical bugbears, hut “words of truth and
soberness.” Then let us have prohibitory leg
islation over our youth, as the greatest public
good. If we would ensure a lasting national
prosperity, let our lawgivers adopt the gener
ous maxims of Lycurgus, who “looked upon
tlie education of youth as the greatest and
moat important object of a legislator’s care,”
and who considered children as much belong
ing to the state, as to their parents. Through
the debilitating influence of these stimulants,
fathers have not energy enough left to take
care of their willful sons, so they are left to
take care of themselves, which they proceed
to do after the example of others, thinking the
quickest way to lie a man is to smoke anil
drink and swear, till they learn by a dear ex
perience, but alas, too late, that with such
habits one can never be a man. Why should
not Christian legislators look to the root of
this matter, and dare to take care of those
who cannot take care of themselves ?

A Chaplain in an Army Hospital.
U. S. Army General Hospital, I
Camden Street, Uallimore, Sept. 15, 1862. (
To the Editors of the Independent:
I send some things that I have seen and
known jjuriug three months’ experience as
chaplain of an army hospital.
The questions that are often asked. Of what
use arc chapluina in a hospital ? what are their
duties ? how much time is devoted to the work ?
I could not the same labor be performed by vol
I uuteer servants? will all be answered by the
! simple statement of thcts. Whether the of
; lice be efficiently tilled, or whether its duties
j lie truly interpreted, depends, of course, upon
the Individual; but one thing is certain. Hint
never was there a sphere of greater usefulness
and more \ aried opportunity than that of the
army or hospital chaplain. There have lieeti
I inefficient, lazy, and uuworthy chaplains dur
ing this war, as there have been generals and
officers incompetent to command, but let nut
the whole corps be judged by a few or fly
many; let eaeli be known by his fruits.
Here 1 have a parish of sick, and wounded,
and convalescent men, gathered from all na
tions and states, and comprising all the differ
ent forms of religious belief. Young men of
eighteen and old men of sixty, and those of
every intermediate age. are here. Some are
religious und some are irreligious. Some have
reached the highest places of respectability and
trust, and others are poor and ignorant.
Here, as elsewhere, pearls are cast before
swiue, aud good seed falls upon stony ground.
Among the six hundred, I have found only
three who can not read or write.
1 am furnished with what is indispensable to
the usefulness of every chaplain—a room, in a
central aud convenient part of the building,
which is my headquarters. In the middle ot it
stands a large round table, with writing mate
rials, not only for myself, but for others. Pa
per and envelopes and postage stamps are in
great demand. Xo sootier do 1 enter my room
in the morning than I am followed by men
bavin? various ouc*tions and wants to tie son
plied. This one wishes me to write to the
captain of his company for his descriptive list,
without which he cannot receive his pay, and
which, by a recent law, he cannot apply for for
himself. That one wants me to write to his
wife, or mother, or father, or friend. Others
want to write themselves at my table.
Against one side of the room stands a book
case, the contents of which are constantly go
ing from ward to ward. There is a variety of
taste here to comprehend every description of
hook or magazine, from Wild Woods Stories
aud Sea Adventures to the Atlantic Mouthly
and Btackicooil and works on Geology anil
Chemistry. A most proselike looking inan as
tonishes you with the demand for poetry, and
those who would be thought by outward ap
pearance to be quite illiterate, surprise you
with their familiarity with books and authors.
The generosity of my friends in New England
has supplied me some new books, but, to my
astonishment, these have already been heard
of by many of the men, aud the criticisms that
are ollen passed upon them are clever, instruc
tive, and amusing. Anthony' Trollope is dis
cussed by a bright German, commended here
and set dowu there. The “Golden Hour" finds
admirers, the “Pearl of Orr’s Island” is relish
ed by appreciative minds, while one man, who
is a lover of piratical and murderous Lales.said
that he liked something more romantic than
that! This charming hook, by the way, found
one reader from Maine who was familiar with
the scenery and the actors, and he said “he
would lay a wager that some of those folks
lived, and he knew them!” What will Mrs.
Stowe say to that ?
Against the opposite walls stand shelves
Jilted with things sent me by the same New
England frieuds, clothing of all sorts, articles
of toilet use, wines, preserves, jellies, and del
icacies of every description. These are dis
tributed as they are most wanted, by my own
hands, or by the matrons aud nurses. Beside
this my room is the retreat sometimes of the
mothers and wives who come to watch over
their sick and* wounded. Twice I have had
the funeral service here, in private, with only
kindred mourners. The first instance was
the funeral of Dr. Charles E. Halsey, assistant
surgeon of the 40th (Mozart) regiment of New
York Volunteers, who died at this hospital on
the 3oth of July, of typhoid fever, contracted
upon the Peninsula. This inun excited a great
interest at once in ail who attended him. lor
we felt that lie had come here to die. There
was a gentleness, refinement, aud sweetness
in Ills whole a«pect aud manner, and we were
not surprised to learn that lie had acted brave
ly, and had stood at his post when friends be
sought him to seek rest. A widowed sister,
who was deeply acquainted with sorrow, and
a faithful nurse, were his constant attendants;
and the whole air of his sick room was that of
tenderest love, and deepest pain at the thought
of parting. Day hv day the body became
weaker, and only brief moments of conscious
ness came to his mind, until the spirit went
out A little group of sympathizing friends
came to my room, and the sister, sitting alone
by tlie cherished laxly, touched our hearts hv
her silent grief, as we prayed together. I
havejust read an extract from a letter to his
sister, written before the expected battle at
Yorktown, in which lie thus bravely reveals
the nobility of liis heart: “If the pat’ll to glo
ry leads ns to the grave, let us die at our post,
and never flinch while duty calls, though the
leaden hail fall thick and fast.” No wonder
that she loved and clung to such a brother.
The other instance was that of CapL Sam
uel J. Thompson, of Woburn, Mass., whose
wife came to spend, unexpectedly, the last days
with him. Listening to the call of his coun
try, he lelt behind him a flourishing business,
a large family of children, aud a beautiful
home, all lor the sake of principle. “What
will become of our army If we all stay at
home who can make good excuses?” he said.
“This is the cause that I liuve been sustaining
with my voice and my vote, and now I will
give iny life for it.” And he did give it,cheer
fully and heroically. He was wounded in bat
tle, and soon after brought to this hospital,
where his leg was amputated, but that could
not save his life, and lie died without a mur
mur.
In recording these incidents of hospital life.
I speak thus of individuals, because the chief
j interest of such a place will center in certain
men and their experiences. But there are also
experiences here of that sacred and confiden
tial uature that could he revealed only thro’
the veil of impersonality. I will mention some
of them at another time—[Independent.

TODD’S MX SOLIS
H A I DYE!
THE market has been flooded for years with differ
ent articles called Hair Dves, which have uover
satisfied the expectations of purchasers. The KK
FLCe cltha has been reached at last in TODD’S
HAIR DYE, and the article has given eutire satis
faction to every person who has used it. It contains
no injurious ingredients, and gives the hair a beauti
ful rich browu or black color. Directions for using
—which are very simple—acrompanv each bottle.
One superiority of Todd’s Lux Solis Hair Dve over
all others is, you do not have to cleanse the l.air or
wash it before or after using the dve, and there is but
one kind to be used, and that can be put on the same
as oil and water, without any trouble, unliko all oth
er dyes that have two or three different kinds to be
applied every time used. This dye is )>cculiarly
adapted for coloring ladies' hair, because you do not
have to wash out the dye after putting it on. Unlike
all other dyes, it will color long hair, which other
dyes cannot do. Give this new article a trial, as we
know you will use no other after once using this,
