WOURHIPIX THE BIHlXdr MI'S The meanest .'trait in the human char' aco r 13 a disposition to worship the ris ing instead o the setting' sun. When, on t iie eighth of , 'November, it was universally believed thu Samuel J. Tilden had been un luetionaby elected President of the United States, wvrasites were numerous. Men who had oprosed his nomination and contributed nothiprg to secure his election lavished upon him he most eloquent adulation. When his starwas in Uie ascendant, even men who votod against him, all of a sudden became Lis' enthusiastic admirers. But as it was a mercenary friendship, it blazed up and flick ered out just as Tilden 's prospects for inau guration waned or brightened. When final ly the conspirators consummated their vil lainy, the flunkies turned their backs upon him and discovered new virtues in the im marulate Ilayes. The following extract, from the Cliicai? Times, shows the contempt which Govrnor Heudricks has for this class of toadivs: "Kx-Governor Hendricks 'a nal a man of violent expression lie preiers peacciul words, as well as peace!"..', methods for the solution of difficul ties. In the senate the Republican were ac- ensusmed to regard him as a conservative in his speeches he wes the quintessence of pat'iilcutiun in all matters of heated contrO' ersy. i'rivate and political huppiness to hiin always meant prudent compromise. Even in a political compain he was rarely ' known to attack men. He denounced mea sures and policies freely never men. Hencc aomu outpourinx-f from his perturbed spirit to in Omaha 'interviewer' the other day will be apt to aston ik his iellow-partisans of the Democratic Ftripe. lie 'defended' Mr. Tilden from the aspersions cast upon him by 'a certain class of disappointed Democratic politicians and newspapers.' Just who these politicians were the interviewer seems to have forgotten to extract from the unusually com municative de jure Vice-President. But he proceeds to inform us that Mr. Hendricks -was confident in his raind that had Mr. Til den been permitted to take the place to which he was elected, there wouldn't have been . a Democratic politician in the coun try, nor a Democratic journal, to say anything but eulogy of him. Not unlike ly, since he would undoubtedly have gone straightway to work to give the country the peace and prosperity which comes from 1 - peace which by a quarter million majority he was elected to do. But the remarkable thing in Hendricks's confidential talk with the Omaha reporter was this: 'Cox, and Knott, and Blackburn, and Springer, and all the others, curs with Democratic collars on their necks, would have been found suppliant and whining at his feet, thankful for the bone of patronage that was bestowed upon them. This extraordinary and enkindling sentiment was supplemented by a declara ion that in 1880 four years hence when Tilden comes to his own, these same faultfinding partisans will be fawning at the seat of the triumphant Uncle Samuel. Meanwhile, how do the brethren in general feel?" The Appeal was one of the first papers to es pouse the cause of Tilden, and defeat has only intensified our admiration for his character. Had he been inaugurated Presi dent the Hampton and Nicholls governments would have long since been recognized, a thousand reforms would have been made, and tbe country would have been tranquil ized and prosperous. Mr. Tilden has done nothing to impair the confidence which in-d-ieed the people to elect him President of the United States on the seventh of Novem ber last. For many months he was the tar- gat of unexampled abuse, and passed through the fiery ordeal with no stain upon his honor. Tbe future prominence of Governor Tilden depends much upon himself. He is, no doubt, greatly soured by the treachery which the cautious and prudent Hendricks rebukes, and by the corruptions which robbed him of the office to which his countrymen elected him. But if he should, like General Jack son under similar circumstances, appeal to the people, he will find, as did General Jack son, that there is an innate sense of justice in the hearts 01 tne nonest masses which will struggle to repair any wrong Umt uam been done an honest public servant. lt Mr. Tilden's future be what it way, we have no hesitancy in saying that he was the best and strongest man that c jdd have been impon.iil'le that poods wade in Maw.ch.iaetts should beat those made at Mar.rhester, in the British market, but an examination at the nearett draper's shop shows that they can and dc, The reports of the Knglish board of trade tell the same story. The February figures of 1S76 say that month's export of cotton piece ioods was 303,511,700 yards, but for February, 177, only 2?7,C04,000 yards, a decrease of 15,17,700 yards. Inquiry on the subject is proceeding, and the London Times makes this significant admission: "We hear omi nous- complaints that we are undersold in cheapness, and surpassed in the excel lence of our manufactures." It is of in terest to know what a sensible, in teuigent English merchant has to say to all this. In the New York Chronicle, of Saturday, we find our curiosity satisfied: it has a communication upon the subject, from W. W. Beggs, Esq., of Liver pool. That gentleman claims that it costs more to build a cotton-mill in New England than in Great Britain; the interest on money is higher; the mills are obliged to have dye and bleaching works attached to them, which requires greater outlay oi capital than in England; then there are dry-hous and bleaching-yards, conducted independently of the mills and at less cost; the water power gained by costly canals is probably as dear as steam in a country where one dollar to one dollar and a half will buy a ton of coal ; labor is dearer in America than in England. The only advantage, then, to the American man ufacturer, is in the price of cotton; but the English manufacturer finds that the price of cotton in Liverpool is generally below the parity in New York on the same day, and New England buys cotton in the south only by paying a higher price tor it than the export ers can afford to do. Every cotton-giowing country sends its product to Liverpool, and, as a rule, " prices are lowest where the largest stock is," and English merchants who have imported cotton have lost money. To all this the American may respond: "The proof of the pudding is in the eating Ameri can goods outsell English ones, ot similar quality, in the English market." The Eng' lish merchant proceeds to say that, beside the obstacles presented by our own naviga tion laws and protective system, the sale of American cotton goods would be restricted by the want of demand for the qualities we manufacture. This is a part of the subject worthy of consideration, and we copy Mr, Beggs 's own words: a ciotn niuue ot American cotton onlv is a class of superior cloth, ot which the sale is and will always be limited. It is like the sale of special brands of fine wine there is a sale, but it can never be the sale of the great con sumption of the world. The Indian ryot is so poor that the price of his scanty cotton garment is of the createst moment to him Lancashire receives cotton from all countries: sne can mix American and cmrat, .Brazil or West Indian, so as to cive the reauisite amount ot quality ana strength tor the min imum ot cost. 1 his is an advantage which will always enable her to sell to the great mass of consumers, and with which cloth made from American cotton only never can compete. In these words the Liverpool merchant claims for England only superior facilities for the manufacture of the lower qualities of goods, in short, superiority in shoddy, no enviable victory fo a market that recently boasted of supplying the world's wants with cotton goods. It is evident that there is a successful future before southern cotton-factories, and Memphis projectors have a splendid prospect. THE LOUISIANA COMMISSION U of the su tiering .iTuankind i lo III.o Frandnlency Ilayes Condemned Even by Lis kitchen Organ v i Jlan-of-aU-Worl. The Commission is Only Another Name for Delay, and "Compromise, of Whatever Character, Is Only Postponement of Adjustment." Washington Xationnl Republican : There is no discussing the fact that the halt in the progress of reform so auspiciously begun is working great mischief in all parts of the country. The public mind, which had gradu ally liecome reconciled to the measures pro posed, coming up to the advanced standard of the administration from the different standpoints of the sections, has unmistakably fallen back to the old intrenchments of oppo sition and rejection, and now presents the same spectacle of hostility and display of bit terness before exhibited by the several divi sions of the people. We do not desire to be unreasonable or captious in our views, for we are conscious that the 1 resident is exerting his highest powers of mind and heart in the patriotic work he has allotted as the first duty of his administration, but we cannot refrain from expressing our sorrow that anything should have occurred to check the popular enthusiasm with which the announcement of his policy was greeted all over the land, in quarters even where no one expected ap proval. It is certain that the purest motives have led to the reconnoisanee ot the situation now determined upon, before proceeding to the application of remedies, but it is equally certain that it has disappointed public ex pectation, and that general depression ha followed in consequence. The south, which has but just emerged from one suffering is fvinL." and cunsUint crucinxion i we not see this in daily life? Think of the influence of noble, self-sacnhcing men upon ourselves. Is there not a constant atonement going on of the good for the evil? In our deepest sorrows and troubles to whom shall we turn for comfort and sympathy but to one who has suffered similarly ana triumphed over his sunenngKr1 Ihe dogmatic systems have been dreams, bad dreams often, night mares, dreams of violence, bloodshed, wrong and oppression. The euen of religion is in the humanities; whatever speaks to us of these is at heart good and true. We can all admire the Sistine Madonna, whether we be lieve in the Virgin or not. So with the Christ of Titian; that is a revelation; that noble conception has a truth which no science at tempts to dispute, no skeptic attempts to re fute." The conclusion, the lecturer said, in regard to the talk about beginning religious reform within, that many noble attempts to that end have been made and are making, but they are hopeless. You cannot put new wine into old bottles, or new spirit into old symbols. As to the future, he added: "We look for ward to a time when justice and wisdom shall guide in government, when the progress of science shall be unchecked, when the influ ence of art shall le universal, when peace and good will shall obtain between man and man. But we do not expect that this is to be accomplished in an instant hrough a God; we are all to accomplish this, -we are all sol diers in tnis .Messianic cause, tins is our spur to the action we need, and this the cause to which our ideal stimulates us. Thus, as I said at the beginning of this course of lec tures, our obiect is peace and ultimate recon ciliation our hone." Dr. Adler will lecture next week on "The Form of the New Ideal." It having been publicly stated that Dr. Adler was educated and supported in hurope by (he Temple Em manuel congregation ofjthjs city, a reporter of the World yesterday Squired of the pro fessor if this was true. 'Prof. Adler replied: "You may state authoritatively that it is al together false.

He arried the country by a larger vote than any other man could commanded. But ' there is netting so successful as success," and it is not surprising that the sun of this incorrupt ible patriot should be eclipsed by a man who holds the Pre.-idency by fraud. Henry Clay said he "had rather be right that President," and Tilden, in his retirement, is more to be envidd than the pretender occupying bis place by fraud. AXEKICAV ASD Et.UNH ( OTTOS MA X IPAtTl HKIW. Carrent event. are arousing keen atten tion, on both sides of the ocean, to the strange fact of American cotton manufac turers finding pale, by the side of English ones, in London itself. The London cor respondent of the New York World calls at tention to the fact that the United States, once England's best customer for manufac tuied cottons, is now its worst, as is shown by the official returns of the board of trade. The English, generally, have regarded the change as a mere temporary matter, ex pec t ing the former condition of things to be re sumed with reviving trade. The retail dealers and the manufacturers in that country, how ever, are learning better. Ihe question is put, "How can an American article sell in Regent street store against a similar one of English manufacture?" There lies the prob lem. Tbe fact w, the English can sot produce the same quality at - the game price. This point comes next: "England has lost the American market; is lose her own market?" Certain it is ..

Ij. C. basse. Little Rock Gazette: From the following letter, received from Colonel Gause, the pub lic may judge of the value to be atl ached to the statements of correspondents that Sena tor Garland was to deliver three votes for Foster as speaker. All of our Democratic delegation in congress are of the material to stand in a crisis like the present: Jacksonpokt, March 24, 1S77. Editor Gazette I notice In rour Ihsum of Tf-tr- dar an extract from tha WAMhlni?tsin ftnrrpsrMiniiMm of the St. Louis Republican, In these words : "Sen ator uaruina, or ArKansas, who nus acted as one or Mr. Hayes's confidants here, says that he has se cured three members of that delegation who will vote for a Republican" candidate for speaker of the next house of representatives. As Colonel Cravens was not In Washington this winter, reference must oe made to Messrs. bunter, Slemons, and myself. Speaking for myself and I think I ran do so for the others also the statement Is wholly untrue. Sena tor Garland never. In his life, mentioned the subject of voting for a Republican to me, and, I am sure, neverntertalncd the thought himself. It is iult9 unusual for senators to Interfere In the election of officers of the house, and It would not be tolerated, if attempted. The privileges of the two houses. aim me couitesies uue ueiween senators and mem bers, are too strictly observed to penult even the ap pearance of interference by either in the affairs of the other. While I do not believe that any person who knows me could be convinced tii..t I --ouli be tray my party and my people, I think it not Improper to say. In reply to the article you copy, that I have never entertained a thought of voting for any but straight-out Democrats to fill all offices, whether of ne nouse oi representatives, state, or nation. Ke- ypectiuiiy, L.. c. UAUSE. "Oath" on Hayes and His Cabinet. Blaine and Tilden are open to criticism be cause they had to make their money as they climbed the mount. Hayes had to pay no heed to his journey, and took' neither scrip nor statt, and hence his private character was unassailable. S. S. Cox said to me: " I knew him when he came to Cincinnati, and he hadn't a client. We thought he lacked force until they elected him city solicitor, and then, with a duty devolving on him, he was per fectly ready and proved efficient." It is a comforting assurance that, with diffusing. easy competence in this country, the large number ot unencumbered estates and sub stantial investments, we shall be ready in another generation with a multitude of men of Hayes's type. Hayes's cabinet is made up with as much specific and treneral electric talent as any man can match. Put a better row of names together! He chose John Sherman for the place next in executive func tion to his senatorial place, the nuance com mittee, and Sherman is the most successful politician Ohio ever had not brilliant like Chase, nor ready like Schenck, but prudent, vigilant and industrious, with fine connec tions, and without any other stigma than want of warmth. Charles Woolley, who was the great attorney for the Ohio distillers, told me before the election that John Sherman's capacity and character were above his general reputation. On the financial issue, as defined by Sherman, Hayes became governor and President. Having put him in the treasury department, the rest of the cabinet was easily selected. Schurz's main elements are indus try and ambition, and, of course, honesty. He did not leave a better German behind him in Germany. Chastened by some defeat, but full of resolute perseverance, Schurz was placed in the great hodge-podge called the interior, as if with the request, N jw go to work and master those unknown languages. Go to the root of abases as you have gone to the roots of the verbs. I will trust to your ambition." Tbe Immoral Mormons. Baltimore Sun : It has never leen denied that the Mormon system is founded on gross immorality, founded on the very principles which, as has been observed, will emasculate and destroy Ihe instinct of conscience, and rot away the elements upon wluch all society rests, ciaimir.g to be a religious faith, it al lows falsehood, systematizes licentiousness. overlooks murderj, vitiates trial by jury, and vests in a single, seinsn ana sensual chiet the supreme interests of a large community. As well might the sect in India which makes murder a religious duty be considered en titled to the benefits of freedom ot conscience as Mormomsm. This abominable system sprung from the same hotbed in western New i one oi ianaucism wnicn nas encenaerea so many other crimes against the prosperity and happiness of mankind. While slavery and Mormonism have been pronounced by fashion able philanthropists "twin barbarisms," it has been found practicable to put down the one at the expense of a million of lives, while it has taken twenty years to bring one Mor mon Thug to his just deserts. While States of the south are garrisoned by troops which uphold policies of government that have no iounuation upon the will of the people, the great and growing Territory of Utah is al lowed to be the held, undisturbed, of a sys tem that disgraces the nation and humanity, and that would not be permitted by any other civilized government in the world to exist for an hour. In reading the accounts of the Mountain Meadows massacre, comparing it with the atrocities of the communists in Paris, it would be hard to decide whether atheistical or religious fanaticism is the worse enemy of mankind. standing ready to welcome his overtures with demonstrations of joy and gratitude, now sinks under a weight ol apprehension doubly distressing in that it proceeds from a blow to confidence slow in growth, and hardly ma tured when struck down. The best and truest friends of the administration from that sec tion confess utter dejection, and promise themselves nothing for the future, so far as at present thscernible. while the reluctant re cruits in the north are fast cancelhitr com mitment to a policy they hate, and now be lieve doomed. Such is the state of public feeling to-day, but it may be modified bv the early withdrawal of the troops from South Carolina. In any view, however, the situa tion is unfortunate because any future ad vance will be the more vigorously contested. that the movement has lost momentum and prestige, and the more cautiously and indif ferently received, that it is regarded with dis trust. Opposition will supersede acquiescence on the one side, and apathy Like the place of interest on the other. The facta and equities of the case are already offensively known to the whole pec pie, and noth ing can be gained by a further investi gation. It is true that information obtained through a commission properly constituted. representing the authority to be influenced by its conclusions, will be more satisfactory to that authority than impressions gathered from other sources. But the developments will have no greater force with the public than those now familiar knowledge. Whatever shall be the result, the same dissatisfaction will exist, and any action based upon the re port which shall be made will meet with the same condemnation by one side or the other. 11 the commission is authorized to effect a compromise, as is generally supposed it will be, not one step will be gained toward the final pacification of the country. Compro mise, of whatever character, is only postpone ment a present accommodation of a matter requiring future adjustment. So that if a compromise is to be made in the premises we shall remain in statu quo during tie next four years, experiencing a " blank olympiad in deed, to be followed by a renewal of the con flict when the term expires. It is sincerely to be hoped that no such scheme is in contem plation, but, if not, of what service will be the commission? The whole cause of the diversion from the cou.-se originally described is, in our opinion, the belligerent attitude assumed by Packard, purposely taken to frustr.ito hf de signs of the administration, by bringing on such a condition of war as would insure the presence of Federal troops. And if such be the fact, the troops should be at once with drawn, upon explicit notification to him and to all that they will return upon the first at tempt at violence, to suppress the party guilty of it. There is no other course which will prove equal to the end proposed the free dom of the people peaceably to choose be tween the contestants. lhat they should have this privilege, under the circumstances, is clear, and that it is the only possible means oi uisposmg ot me question iiualiy is still clearer. Put both parties upon their good behavior by due notice of the penalty to be incurred by a violation of the peace, at d ther retire the Federal forces, leading them to stand or fall upon their own merits with the people.

The Iosmatie Hyutems Have Been Breams, Bad Ureams, Ishtmares, Breams of Violence, Blood shed. Wrong and Oppression. Moncure Conway's London Letter in the Cincinnati Commercial : Whatever may have been the toleration of the Jews in the past, it is certain that they are now admitting a degree of freedom in handling their own records which promises important results. Two of their most learned men and they have more of such in proportion to their num bers than any race in the world are now engaged in explaining a large part of the bible- as mythology. These two are Dr. Stein- thal and Dr. Goldz;her. Steinthal's essnys on Prometheus and Samson fairly founded the new study of the Hebrew mythology, (which Renan said does not exist Les Semi ten n'ont jamais en de mythobxjie). Steinthal identifies Samson as a sungod, and Delilah as a moon goddess. Goldziher, a young Israelite, trained by the treat Arab- lst, Dr. Heischer, now brings for ward his long expected work, wluch Russell Martineau has translated with his usual fidelity, and the Longmans pub lished. It is entitled: V Mythology Among the Hebrews, and Its Historical Develop ment. By Ignaz Gold.iher, Ph. D , member of the Hungarian academy of sciences. Translatod from the German, with additions by the author, by Russell Martineau, M. A., of the British museum.". Russell Martineau (son ot Rev. James Martineau) is one of the best Hebraists in England, as bis translation of Ewald's History of Israel proved. He has included in this volume Steinthal's es says alluded to. The impression which this book has already made here is profound. It is a fact that the Orientals have for centu ries treated many of the bible stories as solar myths. Thus Saadi writes, as if it were a familiar interpretation: "Then Jonah entered the whale's belly the sun set." Goldziber, evidently not acquainted with baadi s sentence, has worked to the same con clusion by way of philology. A good many doubtful biblical reputations are cleared up by these interpretations. Abraham and Iaaac mean philologically the rainy or noc turnal sky, and the "laughing" (Isaac) sun; and the story of the projected sacrifice of one by the other is 6imply the night at tempt of a dismal morning to obscure the sun. jepniiiau means the opening day; his daughter is the Dawn; consequent ly the advancing Day necessarily sacrifices the virginal rosy Dawn, and that is all there is in the terrible stories of Jephtha-genia or Iphigenia. Cain killing Abel is the night slaying the day. Jacob and Esau at birth represent night clinging to the heel of day (Jacob means "follower,") and at sunset cheats him of his birthright perhaps by getting up as gorgeous an evening a was the purple dawn; Goldziher having shown Ui.it "hairy" (Esau) is everywhere a so1..;; epithet sums up fhe story with "Night fol lows close upon Day, driving him from his place." Rachael weeping for her children is tbe Hebrew !Niobe. The solar Mythology as applied to the Olympian deities has had the admitted advantage of relieving the Greeks of the charge of worshiping gods and god desses whose behavior would take them to Newgate, if they were in London; their amours were those of sunshine and flower, nnd their assassinations only eclipses and storms; but it remains to be seen how Jews and christians will entertain this scheme for similarly vindicating the characters of scrip ture worthies at a cost of their reality. ew ork Herald, 27th: About thirty wt- jjiB, iwemy oi -A-nom were women and the rest men, assembled in the dingy room on the second, floor ot So. 5-7 Third avenue.

An air ot nervous expectancy pervaded the little audience, among whom were two negro girls, while Mr. M'Cailrey yuuucuju uie morning service; but the Leav uui pieseui, ana mere was no dis turbance. After Uie liturgical services were over and a collection had leen taken, h'ev Mr. Cowley stepped to the desk and occupied about half an hour in the delivery of an ex temporaneous sermon from the exhortation of St. Paul to the Corinth ians ta eli:inso iVwmi- selves from all impurities of the hVsh, etc., a text ooviousiy suggested by the occasion, and one upon which he managed to hinge various auusions to the pending scandal. He ex plained that the Corinthians were a very gay. corrupt and luxurious people, rjid dwelt upon ine propriety, not ot resisling temptation only, but also of keeping out of the way of vice anil immorality. It was not enough (o act on the defensive. The man who would make real progress in holiness munt !e pre pared to lead the assault against sin and cor ruption in the world. Proceeding in this strain, the reverend gentleman observed that sometimes temptations and misrepresentations came from sources from which one had tie right to expect better things. Such cases were more difficult to deal with, because cue was not prepared to meet them because they came unexpectedly, and were in the nature o"f mutinies. Here Rev. Mr. M'Catfrey smiled and looked around upon the scanty audience, as if he would have said, "You hear what he thinks of these Leavitts, my friends;" but just as his defender appeared to have com menced a paragraph Uiat could only end in a comforting assertion of his brother clergy man's innocence, and the countenances of Mr. M'Caffrey's partisan's were lighted up with rosy expectation, he turned abruptly into the beaten track of moralizing generalities and hastened to conclude with an exhortation. When a hymn had been sung and the audi ence dismissed with the benediction, the rep resentative of the Herald joined the party near the altar ami requested that the nameot the clergyman who had just left the mlpit ot the necklace.

He observed that the place had a dilapidated look, unlike the front it used to wear when he had been wont in other days to share its cheer. A tow-headed boy sat astride an emaciated saw-h rse, wluch wits groggy in the legs, and which was the only horse that had been seen halted in front of that hostelry for many a day. The sign-post had been cut down lor kindling wood, and the old pump. with long wooden handle, leaned aslant and refused to yield the limpid nectar ot the well at the touch of the passer-by. Having duly surveyed these evidences of decay, the traveler addressed the tow-headed boy who bestrode the diseased saw-hores; "Who keeps this place, Bub?" "IV ole 'oman." "What has become of your father?" "(.one dead." "What sort of a place does vour mother keep i " Tavern." "But I mean how does she keep it?" "Like hell." 1 ha,-ebeen recently reminded of this touching anecdote.

He spoke as follows: "There are some who maintain that nothing is valuable that is not tangible to the senses or soluble by reason. If that alone is good which we can prove to be real, life would be bare in deed. On the other hand, sentimentalists urge Uiat the testimony of inward experience is as valuable as' any test of science." There is no question as to the reality of the relig ious need in 'mm, but it is not admissible to use this in order to establish the validity of any particular creed, l ou may say you are happy in your religion; well, so is the Mo hammedan, so is the freethinker, so are the believers in numerous and vastly different creeds. The fables of Uie deafhbed repent ance of infidels are too threadbare to require serious consideration. There is a marked difference between the truths of science and the truths of religion, Uie truths of the heart and the truths of the mind for we concede that there is truth in religion." The lecturer here went on to speak of the i Larms of poetry and the beauti fying effects of illusion in life. He said: "Il lusion often nerves us to undertake struggles which we should never engage in if we saw their inevitable results aheaJ. The qualities we see souieUnies in our loved ones w nnf there, but the illusion which leads U3 to be lieve they are knits firm the eternal bonds of love. Poetry is the idealization of the pas sions.

Religion seeks ierfection in truth. beauty, love, and places them before you, not in dry lorms, as the scientist does, but em bodied in living types which anneal to all The lecturer described the bible version of the creation as nothing more than a ooern. written by one who certainly did not speak as though ue were r.-cning a iact or relating something of which he was a witness. The idea of the millennium he regarded also as purely poeti cal. He asked who can believe that the world was made out of nothing, or who, that has followed Uie gradual development of history, can expect Uiat a being will come some day and change it all in an instant? All thi.-, he said, is true only in ideas and as symbolizing the hopes and aspiraUons of mankind. Speak ing next of the opposition to all new ideas, Prof. Adler teferred to the spread of Moham medanism in ihe east, secured at the cost of rivers of blood; to Uie spread of Christian ity in northern Europe by means of tire and the sword; to the thirty years of war and convulsions of States which accompanied Uie reformation, and continued: All this ereat traxredv of human life has been put before us in Uie story of Uie life and death of Uie Messiah. During the coming week the christian churches will rehearse this tale of harrowing agony Uiat closed so long ago on Calvary. AY hy is it that its influence to-day is as potent as if it had occurred but yesterday? Why is it that men who think an we du will tand sometimes in a Catholic c&thednd aud be moved, even to tears, by the assistant attorney-general at Washington. recital of this story? Is it not because this In a current magazine, Mr. Joaquin Mil ler publishes the following verse "To Be linda: ' If all the world a garden were. And women were but bowers. If men were bees that busied there i nrouguout tne summer hours. Oh! I would hum the garden through For honey till I came to you. Then I should hive within your hair.

Chicago Tribune: The influence of tiie Sullivan trial in the Democratic politics of this city seems to be important. Last fall Bill O'Brien, one of Sullivan's counsel at the first trial, dictated the Democratic nomina tion lor btate s-attorney; yesterday William II. Hynes, one of Sullivan's counsel at the second trial, was nominated for city-attorney. This individual w is never heard of in Chica go, to our Knowledge, until ne turned up as one ot Sullivan s defenders; now we learn has been here a year and a half, and was previously an "Arkansas traveler." He em igrated to Arkansas from heaven knows where, under the protection of the army, and as long as tiie army remained he was a car petbag politician on the Republican side, vv hen the army left Arkansas, he left too, ana now ne turns up in unicago as a carpet bag pohtic.au on tue Democnil.c ride. All this is chiefly interesting as showing that the xsemocruuc iienunciaiion ot flu carpetbag gers in the south was simply because they were ou the opposite side, but that Uie Dem ocrats arc in favor cf carpetbaggers on their side especially when they have done service in getting aunivaa on. we may as well re imiiii lueiu, nowever. mat tne nomine" lor Cfc'ie s-aTtorney dictated oy Air.

Nasnville correspondence of the Chicago Tribune: Outside of the fact that the great army of scoffers at so-called Spiritualism may believe that a man who gives credence to its peculiar doctrines was a lunatic ere he be came a convert, I don't remember ever hear ing of any Spiritualist in Tennessee going stark mad upon the subject, and the State holds probably some fifteen hundred believers, who belong to all elapses and degrees, and in cludes both educated and uneducated disci ples. Before the war a christian minister went over to Spiritualism, and a large num ber of people were kind enough to remark that he had been laboring under temporary aberration of mind, or he never could have taken so roundabout a chute toward heaven. He still maintained an equilibrium of mind, and was as eloquent and as powerful upon ms new sumeci as wnen ne spoke Irom velvet- trimmed pulpits, in true orthodox st-le, to cuuivateu ana nigniy rehnea audiences. While the Spiritualists of Tennessee may, as in other places, have fallen in the estima tion of their more orthodox brethren, it ia but justice to say that the believers represent a ciass ot respectable and thrifty citizens, though this sort of religion, or fanaticism as many would term it, has at divers times af forded diversion, anil even been a source of revenue, to persons imitating the seances of tne true believers, and imposing upon the creuunty oi tneir teliow-men. It is told that there is a colony of Spiritualists who have settled down among the mountain fiistnesses of Tennessee, and who claim to have been directed thither by the spirit of a dead hunter. who was wont to tread his way through the mazes ana labyrinths of the deep gulches mat line tne mountain sides, iierc, v. on his hunt after bear? and other wild am inals, he so he. coimumcated through the medium had discovered in a certain spot, and at the bottom of a gulch, an inexhausti ble gold mine. It was stated to the credulous believers that if they dug down to the depth of two hundred feet they would strike the rich vein, and the lortune of every individual engagea in tne search would be assured. This little colony lived frugally, dwelling in litUe comfortless log huts. and. when thev could spare the time from the delving after tne precious metals, they raised small patches ot potatoes and corn, which, with the wild meat brought down with, the rifle, furnished them with a livelihood. Here, isolated from all the rest of Uie busy world, struggling for a my thical store of gold, the deluded beings have for years labored, and grown old and gray in the service, and many have sunk down to Uie grave without even getting a sight of the goal of their hopes. The hard flint and tough marble that dulled the edges of their instuments seemed almost beds of iron, yet they never yielded, only making more strenuous efforts, and the delv ing down into the promising bowels of the earth was carried on in the face of almost insurmountable difficulties. The faith still lingers, and, were any one to in form the workers that they were laboring under a delusion, he would doubtless be laughed at for his exceeding stupidity in dis crediting the statements hunter, of the dead Indian FASniOX'S FOLLY. the colonel. "Of course not," said I, "but its Slim Jim bum Jim, ot Indiana postmaster-general at; jactD. "Oh,' Kiid the colonel, "de facto? And who is the posmaster-general aliunde?''' "Your friend Key," said I.

To my mind, the strategy i-y wmeu .iiortou seized the general postothce ana captured tne t.onfeilerate postmaster- gene.ul, is one of the funniest tilings that ever transpired. 1 ou all know Key.

He is one of Morton s strikers from Indiana, and wears cooil clothes, including a number six hat. Ihe clothes are the clothes of an elegant gentleman; but what Slim Jim doesn't know about tilings m general would make a choice library, lie knows just enough to be service able, and not enough to be troublesome to Morton. When he wakes up ia the morning he lies in bed until Morton sends word that ne may git up. 1 have heard it said that he awaits similar permission to perform oUier uomcsiic i unctions, but 1 don t believe that part ol the story. However, he never takes any important step without Morton s permis sion. Vhen Key was appointed postmaster general Slim Jim was aaked to take the nlaee oi in-si assistant, tie was then instructed to decline. Then Uie order was so far modified as to read. " You i will take the matter under advisement." Finaliy he was commanded to accept. it Morton should take a freak some day aim oiuer Jim to go out to lajianny and saw wood, Jim would conclude in his simple mind that Morton had at last found out what the Almighty had created him for; and you would see him, with that same white mus tache and apologetic face, trudging patiently away with his saw-horse on his shoulder and his saw within his hand. You may think it is a great convenience to a man like Morton to have a valet like Slim Jim. But you should also reflect that it is a big thing for a simple soul like Jim to have a gmu, man like Movton for his master. Once upon a time an English gei.Ucman was traveling in Italy and he fell sick. His va: t nursed him with such sleepless a.ssidnifv a:..l such uncomplaining fidelity that one day the master exclaimed, "What could I do without you, Johni" "Ah, master, reioined Simple John, d o tending his Yorkshire mouth from ear to eur. what wud ee do withoot thee V Mnnv'a i !i .yunei u ue poou tosarve tnee, tor goin abro.id to see all the far countries V the wearin' of fine clothes.

S;-.i Francisco Mail: Perhaps She utterly infamous :in! blood-thirsty natue of the average California hoodlum was nevr better illustrated than by the butchery of five in offending Chinamen at Chico last wk. It makf s one's blood boil to think this ihastly crime was committed in Uie most del berate and premeditated manner, and that tht mur ders got off, as usual, unknown and ui dis turbed. If Governor Irwin is the capable ex ecutive we take him to be if, above all, he has the pluck to do a righteous action, thonyh one unpopular with the "great unwashed he will spend both time, money and energy in bringing the Chico assassins to justice. Ee can do no more manly action than to at once offer rewards sufficient to send some of tij murderers te the galiows. He is sure of hear ing from some member of Uie blood-thirsty gang in this way. Assassins can be bribed to betray as well as murder it is part of their ghoulish trade. Place what restrictions are found requisite upon Chinese emigration ; but so long as these unfortunate people are actu ally living among us they are entitled to the same protection, both legal and moral, that is awarded foreigners of any race. Those who join in oar great processions have no better right to the security of their persons and property than has the clumsiest "John" that ever tumbled down the gangway of a Pacific mail steamer. A great deal of elaborate nonsense is talked about the iniquity that is presumed to result from Uie existence of Uie six companies, but with such horrible acta of deliberate brutality cons'antly occurring, what blame can attach to the Chinese for banding together in self-defense? It is the instinct of self-preservation. No one need be surprised, and no honest man can fail to rejoice hereafter when these over patient people are goaded into taking iieir own part. Now and then the terce of American example peeps out even amid the -.-ace of Jobs. At Gold Hill, some months ago, a miner was amusing him self by robbing a Chinaman of his mule. The latter havinsr the impudence to resist this cheerful proceeding, the miner felt for his re volver. The Chinaman, however, produced a similar weapon and incontinently shot his despoiler dead. Of course, there was a vin dictive rush toward John made by the aston ished spectators. Just then the partner of the dead man advanced and waved the crowd back. "It was a fair fight, bovs. Let the Chinee go!" he said sternly, adding with an admiring emphasis, Ihe tact is these Mon golians is improvin'." May they continue to improve until such outrages as the one at Chico become impossible, says the Mail.

It is described in detail by the Tribune as follows: "The dress proper was of cream-white satin, stiff enough to stand alone, with long train, and a partly flowing watteau of black Lyons velvet falling over the satin train. The watteau was al most entirely covered by old round point lace turned back upon the velvet, showing the en tire pattern of the lace. Over the white satin front of the dress was more black velvet. draped with point lace flounces garnished with novel designs in flowers, consisting of tournures of pacsies, pinks, apple-blossoms, Narcissus and autumn leaves, fringed with lilies of the valley. The watteau was held back by bouquets of flowers from the waist down. The bodice was cut square, both in front and liehind, very low, with short kIbcvcs, garnished with flowers and lace.

The victor, as the attacked party, wa3 acquitted, it being pronounced no oteno for a lady merely to take the arm of a married man. The wife was acquitted lecause she was already severely punu-hed. The husliand was lectured severely by the judge, and the crowd of spectators came near lynching him, not for walking abroad with a pn Uy girl, but for having run away from his friehd.
