The Prime Minister of Great Britian astounded and disgusted his countrymen sufficiently, it would seem, by his speech to the Primrose League advocating an Orange rebellion in Ireland; but he has aroused even a greater sensa tion by his utterances at Hasting last week in denunciation of the British policy of free trade. x1 ilty years ago, he said, every body believed that the rest of the world would follow England's ex ample by accepting the new com mercial policy; but instead of do ing so, the great nations are al adopting protection, to the injury of British industries. Other conn tries, he complained, seek to gain mutual advantages by exchanging a n m commercial tavors, but "none is anxious about the favor of Great Britian." Why is this so ? Lord Salisbury answers : "Because Great Britain has stripped herselt of the armor and weapons with which the battle is to be fought. The attitude which we have taken in regarding it dis loyal to the glorious and sacred doctrines of free trade to levy duties on anybody lor the sake of anything we get thereby maybe noble, but it is not businesslike. On these terms you will and do get nothing. If yon intend to hold your own in this conflict of tariffs you must be prepared to refuse nations who injure you access to your markets." ''We complain most of the Unit ed States," continued Lord Salis bury, but, as he naively confessed. "It so happens that the United States mainly lumishes tie with articles which are essential to the good of the people, and with raw material which is essential to our manufacturers. We cannot ex clude either without serions injury to ourselves. I am not prepared, in order to punish other countries, to inflict dangerous wounds on ourselves." In this grave dilemma Lord Sal isbury admits that the only course open to England is to levy high duties oa articles imported tromj other countries than the United States, in order to compel access for English products to the mar- ets of thoee countries. . lie does not explain how cutting on the nose of France or Germany is going to 6pite the face of Uncle Sam, which is what he would really w"sh to do, ss "we live in an age oi war tariffs." This confessit n of impotency to injure us is wortu me serious thought,! all Americans.eBpecially f those who are likely to be mis- ed by the specions advocatee of free trade. England admits . . e American Tpruuueie iree ui uutv, r J solely ana avoweaiy oecause sue i 1 1 t i i cannot help herseii in me matter, American free traders say that a nniht tA omv Eno-lifih nrndncts ..v- o f. ft r- uiaijicto m wiu I trade." But according to the con iession of Lord Salisbury our trade aliGfldv has full and free ODDortun- tv to rear, every benefit possible in j . . that market! He would gladly j r cunau or aoonsn mose opponuui- . i .1 . ; 1 ties if he could, but he cannot; and since the United States will not accept the imritufmn nt iha f., who lost his and go into the tree trade trap, tne on iy recourse 1 .1 1 1 for the latter is to wage commer cial war upon some other countries.

Tbe Tory Premier will not succeed in chausrin&r the industrial policy of his own country, but he has un wittingly exposed its weakness to the world, and America, for one, may thank him for an object lesson on the fallacy of free trade. , A tariff for revenue onlj upon o mmomnrntA basis, is the tier- 7 1 fection of political ethics, Tariffl reduction to this basis and not free trade is the Democratic policy with Cleveland as its champion. "NATURE'S END." Let others extol the works nf man. Noble is their purpose. They urge us on to accomplish worthy deeds. "Livee of great men all remind us, We can make our lives sublime." But to-night let us attempt to rise above the meaner pursuits ot man to contemplate the infinite and marvelous works ol his Crea tor. How glorious are the attributes of Nature! And how infinites!- mal the knowledge we possess of them. Yet the little that we do know 01 her tar exceeds our learn- mg on all other Bubiecte; and bo multitudinous are her wonders that it is difficult to decide where to begin. bhall we view her irom the Btand point of the physicist, chem- iat, geologist, botanist or zoologists Let the book ot nature a maker answer: "The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firms- ment showeth His handiwork." So let us "Take the glass And search the skies. The opening skies pour down Upon our gaze thick showers of spark nog fires Stars, crowded, throngs in regions so rc mote, That their swift beams the swiftest things that be Have traveled centuries on their flight to earth. Earth, sun and constellations! What Are ye amid this infinite extent And multitude 01 God's most infinite worKBf Oh, 'tis an enchanting pleasure to be permitted to raise our eyes and minds beyond the narrow limits ot the earth and soar among thoe brighter worlds above! It is then that oar souls become enraptured with admiration and respect tor the Creator, and that we feel that we are in closer contact with our God. Call to mind the great discov- ery of Newton, which stands as the farm bulwark or our present science ot astronomy It was thic: Being . acquainted with the existence of a force that drew all bodie3 to the earth, he thought it would be 6trango if this property belonged exclusively to the earth; that this might bG a property of all matter, and Bhowed to the world that the movements of bodies in our solar system could be accounted for by the grand mem ory of gravitation. 1 hen direct your attention to the molecular theory, which as sumes that all matter is composed of minute particle, separated from each other by spaces, which are comparatively very great; that these parucies are ai ways in a siate oi motion, governed oy tne saine s . . , - , , forrA that fx i fit a hfilwppn thft lifiav eny bod;es bnt having in this case - - the special name ot cohesion.

Why rc sist the grand and interesting con elusion? Each of these stars may be the token of a system as vast and glorious as the one that we m- habit. Worlds roll in these dis tant regions, and must bo the mansions of lite and ofinielligence. In yon gilded canopy oi heaven we see the broad aspect of the uni pre8entg ug with a eun and each verse sun with a system of worlds, where the Divinity reigns in all the grandeur ot lis attriDutee; where it, 1 .. ..1 rr- peoples immensiiy wiiu xiis wonaers, ana iraveis in me great- nessofHis strength through the dorninioa of one vast and unlim ited monarchy. Each star that shines upon our earth, even the tiniest one, illumi- nates our sky in a small degree Now, it this was continued indents nitely we should receive an iofiaite amount of light even our mid night 6ky would be so bright as to blind us. We know this is not the case, and yet it undoubtedly would be, were stars distributed through space as thickly as they are within the limit Jthe eye ot mortal man has' pierced. Hence our stellar I system must be limited. Now it Ma impossible to suppose a limit to space, and it is improbable that there is nothing but our finite solar system in all space. I here must, tneretore, be other systetne, per- haps grander than our own, tint never will be known to our world The better way to explain this, let us go back to our molecules. Here I we see a body composed ot parti- cles separated by space. Turn to our Btellar systemCannot we 6up- pose that to be some tupendons J body ot which the sun, moon and stars, together with our little earth, form the particles But let ns not stop herejearry our theory further, and further yet, so that we may be able to conceive somewhat of the grandeur of the works of God. If our stellar system is such body as has been described, it must be a part of some still larger world, the di mensinns of whieh :,iQ mnnAA t k ki t , compasB; auu may not even mis supposed world to be a particle in one 6till larger s Jow, is it reason- aDje t0 suppose that a molecule is the smallest particle of matter; for if we were small enough to live on them we cannot douot out that we could pick up objects from it as we would a stone from the earth, And it can be imagined that these obiects wonld still have their molecules, and that these molecules supported tiny beings. And, since I have gone so far, let me confess that I believe this system is con4 J tinned on and on, and up and down tbe scale in both directions ad infinitum. Grand as this con ception ofnatnre may appear to our narrow minds, it falls far short of her wonders, and gives only a faint idea of her stupendous Crea tor. Would that some idea of the glory ot the. works ot our oranip- oteut and omnipresent Creator could be infused into the minds of epery livirg creature. Then no longer would there be one who doubted the existence of a God. There may be eoine difficulty in imagining a molecule to be any thing like our earth, and as large in object r-.s our stellar system to be only a particle ; but it should be remembered that s:zi is only a relative term, and that, if you were gigantic enough to hold our stellar system in your hand, you would then wonder h&w it could be composed of particles, inhabited by being?, some of whom prided them selves on their size and strength. Follow a little further the argn meut, and let us regard all aronud us in the broad light of this theory. For aught we know to the contrary, when we heat an object or dissolve a snbstancf, we in ay at that moment bo destroying countless races vf living beings. And who eh'ill say that, if such minute creatures exist, they have no souls? Where is the man that has attained to knowledge so profound as this ? Yet the Creator of all pigmies and giants, worlds and systems, and space see3 ana ladges, and cares for all. W hen we contemplate nature, v. : rtness never overtakes u?, and it only grieves us that a limit is put to our investigations; but we ire solaced by the thought that when we have Him, the Creator, for a preceptor, our knowledge shall be limitless as the univerie, Truly the German poet, Richter, has spoken well in those wonder ful words which the English prose poet, JDeQumcey, has so nobly translated. His splendid vision aptly expresses the feebleness of man s conception in the presence of the infinite wuiiiers ot creation bod ca.ied up irom a dream a man in the vestibule ct Heaven, saying - ' Uome thou lather and see the elory of My house '. And to the angels which stood around His throne He said : ' Take him, strip him from the robes of flesh, cleanse his vision, and put a new breath in his nos'rils, only touch not within any change ot his human heart the heart that weeps and trembles ! It was done, and with a mighty angel for his guide, the man stood ready for his infiaite voyage ; and from the terrace of Heaven, without sound or fare well, at once they whirled away into endles? space. Sometimes, with the solemn flight of angel wings,they passed through Ziharas of darkness, through wildernesses of death that divides the worlds ot life ; sometimes they swept over frontiers that were quickening under prophetic , motions from God. Then from a distince which is counted only in the Heavens, light dawned for a while through a shapeless film; by unutterable pace the light swept to them they by unutterable pace to the light. In a moment the rushing of planets was upon tnem. xnen came eternities of twilight that revealed, but were not revealed. On the right hand and on the left towered mighty constellations, that by self- repetition and answers from afar, that by counter positions built up triumphal gates, whoe architraves, whose aichways, horizontal, up right, rested, rose at attitude by spans that seemed ghostly from infinitude. Without measure were the architraves, past number were the archways, beyond memory the gates. Within were stairs that scaled the eternities around; above was below and below was above to the man stripped of gravitating body. Depth was swallowed up in height insurmountable; height was swallowed up in depth un. fathomable. Suddenly, as thus they rode from infinite to infinite; suddenly, as they tilted- over abysmal, worlds, a mighty cry arose that systems more mysten ous, that worlds more billowy, other heights and other depths were coming, nearing, were at hand. Then the man sighed, stopped, shuddered and wept. ' His overladen heart uttered itself in tears, and he said : 'Angel, I will go no farther, for the spirit of man acheth with this infinity. Insufferable is the glory of God. Let me lie down in vthe grave and hide me from the persecution 01 the Infinite, tor the end 1 aee there is none . And from all the listen- ing stars mar biioub arouuu lssueu a choral voice: ' The man speaketh 11 1 i 1 ; j I truly; end, there is none that ever yet we heard of!' End, is there none !' the angel solemnly de mauded, Is there, indeed, no end?' 'And is this the sorrow that fills you?' Bat no voice answered that he miffht answer himself. Then the angel " threw up his glorious hands to the Heaven of Heavens, saying : End, is there none to the nniverRA nf (lA fi I ; u no beffininff Well may we exclaim with the Psalmist, in adoring humility and astonishment : " When I consider Thy Heavens, tbe work of Thy fingers, the moon and the stars which Thou hast ordained, what is man that Thou art mindful of him, and the son of man. that Thon visiteth him?"
