Mr. Bewohet pruuebed reaterdaj uiorning in
Plymouth fiiurch upon tne need of living in thu future
and nut in the past.
If any mau. sahl Mr. Livelier, had a rlgl t to ll ve in
retrospect, it was Paul, yet be did not dwell there. Man
Should not live lil m.-inory ml Hie past, hui Just between
the past sn't the future. M hiv lived almost exciu-ively
by retros pi chou, hut the Christian plan was to live tu
hope. Hope aud love were the twa winga ta bout men
Into the bosom of Oed, We Bhouafl resur?
rect many things from the past, to get
O kindling tiro for the future. If th- knowledge ls sound
and good lt should he kept, hat much snoulil hu forgot?
ten. What wo leam hy passion shoiil i not he di sen
tom tx d. The light of sin was ihe ptaeophomenoul light
of decay. Many complain this year the sauie oomplaiuta
os last year, forgetting bow tney were disposed of in the
post. Do not recall tbe Bael to rene*) grief Icit univ to
renew courage. Many per-ons sat tn grief as mist rubin
fowls alt on addled eggs; the more they sit
tho worse they are. Use the past not for Its
own sake, hui for aspiration and tho future. Live In
the c.iinln-', by tight and not by backsight.
Live by foreseeing and loicslght The day when
Christ was horn in a man should hu his Christinas.
Tuere waa such a tulug as au ignoble couiontment
Willi 1.fe. The mun who felt that he had done enough
wa* immoral. Much should he ti.rowu Into t >o pasi and
be utterly torgOUOU i uevcr forcer au ebkgutton, bul al?

Invoked, let them be forglveu and forgot.en. Caet out
on the wide ocean of oblivion ult hatreds and revenges,
and have the soul pure aud clean.
Woe to the mau who said he wa* full of knowledge.
It was inc ours? of many that they kuow lt all. No mah
ever yet learned enough. Thero wore men to whom you
could tell nothing. Il was astonishing what noona*
mental kiowlcdge there wa* in fools. Tho wise never
Ceased to augment the liol ls of knowledge. UTbaBOTe!
concerned Qed should ooneoru ama: an eveslasttag
hunger for knowledge should be kept up. (jotting BUI of
oohool was a mere learning of gas a phau!. if the do
?Ire for loaming ceased lhere wa* u> more hope. Charl
tie* and kindnesses should never be renie inhered. The
niau who helped the wui .d to forget lt waa heroic. One
should never count what lie did for his friend*. Kuough
could noter be doue for society, lt did
more Int each man lu one round, roav day than he could
return lu a ll retune.- How many men ?oemed to despise
society, wi!bout which they would bo nothing. Gue
should not rest content with what be has done fur hu?
manity aud his country ; lt could never be enough No
man ever lived but Jeans wno did his share or the
World. When a man kindled the fires of conceit under
the golden si.-il.eit lu which he stewed up his virtu s,
there wai the end of him, and he went up lu smoke to au
lll-condtitoued odor. Many men thought they wore won?
der* for doing so much, but God's c.ear light would
Booreh their conceit.
Mr. Beecher then spoke of what he gamed lu health
and care from his father and mother, and said he
thanked Hod more for the fact that at the beginning of
hts ministry he chose tbe sile of the weak and unpopu?
lar than anything else. But he never exulted that he
had doue anything for thia land In thc. death siruggh-t of
slavery aud tbe birth struggle* of liberty. He only re?
gretted that be bad not ben more f?.rih-putiiiig. He
who Barred mau most served Ooi stoat.

Men like Holme* aud Whitier, who lu their th lila still
sung aud worked, were worthy of the utmost
honor. Thu Laureate still wrote, and .s
work was kicked out with tbe words,
" Will ho never know when to oease I" Hut he wa* hon?

The K'V. James M. Pullman preached in hia
Ohutoii lu Fifty-soveutb-at., naur Bg ala ave.. y( alerday,
Upon "The Oppoiiunity of the New Year-liioom or
Bbgut." He told the story of a young mau who sold his
soul to Hie devil, bul who aftsr ho had beooine rloh a:d

deavored to ttnd somebody to take Ino contract
Off bis hai-ds. He said to himself, "burely I con
find somebody among those lb prison, er amour tbe
wretched, sunken outcasts, who will glatly take my
lome r, youth ninl heal! ti snd give up hi* soul." But he
was unsuccessful. It is the wretched and the fallen who
apart eta te tba! they have a soul wor:h BYta ?. lt ls all
that they burs to care ter. If you want te buy a soul
you ,.? ii il le fc'o to those lu high places, tba Huh and those

Washington, Deo. 3l.?Secretary Chandler vril
?ead 'o Con cress, prolialily next week, a letter re
questing further appropriations for the genera
maintenance of the navy yards for tho present Isca
year. This appropriation covers the expense of gas
coal, water, horses, watchmen, eta: and tlia
made for this year was $L'20,000?Just one
half of that made for tbe year liefer*
The Secretary now rinds himself with only$24,HOI
on hand, which will last until the middle of Feb?
ruary. He will ask (Jonirress to apnropriate ab.uii
the same amount for the time from February 15 to
March 31 as u deficiency, ou the groand that the
1.aval appropriations of tim present year were not
iivullalil" iiniil aboutthe5th of Angus', until which
tinic the expenses were met out of last year's appro?
priations. For the ;emaining three mouths of the
liscal year from March Ul to June 30 about $75,000
will be iioeessary; and the S-cretarv will give
notice that, if this appropriation is n<>l made, he
will sh. t up four or Ara uavy yards. Which
yards he will select to he closed, the Secretary
dei lines to say, hut the statements in his annual
report loavo little doubt that those ul Pcnaaool 1,
League Island, boston and Por siuouth, anil pos?
sibly Nortolk, will he tho ones. If nil rive should
ho closed only tho New-York and Washington yards
nu the Atlantic and Mare Island on tho Paciiic
would be left In activo operation.
It la possihlo that s me of tho yards might have
Leen dosed before now had it not been for a
clerical blunder in the Naval Appropriation hilL
as the House or ginally pa mad nie bill, it provided
" that ii the Secretary of the Navy shall bud that
WOak at all tbo navy yards now maintained cannot
be carried on during th oumul n.scal year with ad?
vantage to the service and economy to tho Govern?
ment tor the amounts in this act npprop'i ited for
the maintenance, and civil o-ttahlishmeht at the
navy yards," he should close the yards vrbieh could
be best dispensed wi rh, and report his action to
Congrean Th? Senate struck out the wurdi " for
the maintenance aud civil est.abiiohment at the
navy yards." leaving it at the discretion of tho fcjec
r turv to close any ol' the yards if ho thought they
could not be carried on with adrantage to
tim Government. Tho conference comiuitteea
aureed to this, hut in engrossing the bill
the House provision crept back by accident,
and tho closing of tho yards was made to depend
upon the condition of thean minor appropriations.
Tho appropiiatiiin for civil establishments which
covers clerks, writers, etc., was ouud su/llcieut
with eiuiioKiy, and the question thou was whether
Cengiuae Intended shel the navy yards should be
closed merely gauuuau then was no BBaaaef for
gas, water, etc., and tho Secretary felt that be could
not 1-0 hold.
Ii Congie** would deal with the navy yard rques
ti Bj on the basis nf the facts brought to its atten?
tion in his annual report, it would accomplish a re?
form whit li would reflect credit on the Republican
party. While preparing his report tho Secretary
sent to all (be navy yards for a state?
ment showing the number of naval o'lleers,
se,c.nen nnd marines, and of civil employes uud
workmen engaged in the uaw yards on tim lilt ii of
