FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 0, 1874. Til* sceui Now Taklif Place Id EnglandTlie English bout of their Conaemtlim?ol their moderation and of their lupcrlor civilization generally?and yet the scenes sow occurriog at the Parliamentary election weak! be c disgrace to tbU'Oowlrf days'-of ilfveryr Ttio American people do not Id then Umea bo far lorget what is dan to free speech and common falrneu as do the English In their elections. No speaker in England is sale trom insult, not even men like Mr. Uladitomb, the Premier, or Mr. disiiakm.the leader ol the Opposition. Bere Is a spec!mtn. icr Instance, of the way the Liberals and Consttvativcs respect each other's rights at the polls: "The contest forrI<lnoo|u city was close and exciting and attended by great dlaorder A large mob at one time held posieasiuu ul tliu streets; attacks were ipudc on the polling places, windows were smashed and an attempt was made to let Ore to a hotel. The military were Anally called In and charged upon and dispersed the rioters. .further disturbances wero leared tonight, biit at last accouulu they had not been renewed, the declaration of the result of tbe election having a tranqullizing efiect on all parties." We do not mean to say that such cenes as ibis characterize every place whore tljo polls are opened. 1'bla is the wo tat case ol disorder that wo have notice^, but still it Is only olio case ol disturbance and riotous demonstration oat ofsevural (but have happened thus early Id the Parliamentary campaign. It ll l?ir tnpreauuie that weaball see moroof this before the great contest now going on between Liberals and Tories la euded. Speaking ol Ihla contest, we are sorry to see that Hr. Gladstone is rather losing thaii'gitiiiliig atreugth thus Tar, but inasmuch aa Ihe eltcliouB have only Just begun we do not despair of his ultimate success. He represents the progressive element in British politics. He it is who brought forward aud put through thai sound and just measure that die established the Kngliah church in .Ireland, and he it Is also who induced the Queen to exercise her royal prerogative iu abolishing sales of preferment in the British army. He U is alio wbohasmanllested a disposition to deal fairly, with the Catholics in Ireland in matters of eleemoeenary grants. The opposition to Mr. Gladstone are trying to make head against him on account ol the Ashanteo war in which the country has been engaged, but as the last advices are rather favorable for an early settlement ol that difficulty, it is poeilble that ho may escape serious ioiurv from it at the polls. We observe that Mr. Dun/feu alluded to it in very bitter terms in bis speech at Aylesbury, on Saturday last. Ho said that "the dissolution ol Parliament was an aclol black treachery which Mr. Gladstone learned Irom the tactics of the Ashantees." This Is the rough sort of Uuquage that even so prominent aD English statesman as Disbaeli, who aspires to the Premiership of the realm,uses on the hustings. England is a very rough county, in election times. Ho also >poke 01 Ur. Gladstone's proposed reduction of the Income tax as "a bribe to secure success in the coming elections" Wo inter that a monarchy does not nec essarily change the stylo of speech incident to a political campaign. The general position of Mr. Gladstone is rather popular in England. His proposed financial rolorm embodies all the retorms in taxation which Sir Charles Dii.kk and other advanced RfuUcala have continually advocated. Ho also takes an advanced position in favor ot extending household suffrage to the counties and that enfranchising the English agrlculturallaborers. Tlit) income tax which Mr. Uladbtqnr proposes to abolish amounlB to about $20,000,000 annually, and the sugar and coBee dulfca to about $10,000,000. This will neceMitate the transfer of the burden ot .taxation probably to the wealthy land owners?u relief to the laborers which they will appreciate and be glad to support by their ballots. All the leading politicians of both parties have issued their accuBtomed addresses to the people and ace oncu more in the hustings, with money and intlncnce, to aeoure favorable endorsements. The enlarged franchise secured in 1903, now for tho first timfe'rcally available, will give additional interest to the canvass. John Bbiubt, the great leader and agitator, will vigorously support-qlidbtone'b policy, and therefore the _# (Hit t - ? ? . pruopcuia ui -jiuerai udiud,"' wnicn is regarded so essential to success, notwithstanding the dissensions, promise good results Both sides are bopelul i of victory and the canvass will bo in- \ tensely L.veiling. The new Parliament will meet the 5th ut March. : It lias been a matter ot great difficulty to find out bow England managed to get < into a squabble with the negroes ol the , Gold Coast. But h>atitr'f Uagutine tells I the Btory. It seems the English and the ' Dutch proposed to swap some property that neither ol them owned. The Asbuutee tribe happened to livo on that territory that tho Dutch gave to England, and so they went with the farm A little misunderstanding arose, and Atjiempoa lost his Fetish stool, a sacred and valuable religious article. In his starch for the stool, a rival prince Interfered, and then England's honor being at aUke,shoTuterrered. And Disraeli considers this his main chance.

Henry Wild Beecher and Blihop I'uinmlas? Onr Correspondent Takes ttiein Both M, Talk. LKcicnUr CoireipoDdancfl of the Intelllgsncer.] Nsw Yonx, Feb. 3,1874. 1 There 1* sometimes matter lor grave retlectloa u well as far glib comment la the Monday morning report! Irom the Mew York pulpit* u (nrnlihed by tome of the leading Mew York Journals. In the Tribune of February 2d, ander the head or "Religions Gleanings," there are brief rcporti of sermons delivered the day before by several eminent divines, among whom .were Rev. Henry Ward Beecher, of Plymouth Church, and the Right Rev. Blihop Cummins, at Btelnway. Hall. Of the former the Triburu report says. "Mr."^Beecher selected for hla subject that portion of Bt John where Christ predicts his own departure from the world, and tells his sorrowful disciples, ' It is expedient for yon that I go awayt for il I jgo not awav the Comforter Will not come unto you. 'J " It was thought (said Mr. Beecher) that the iniierlal existence of Christ would he the great and satisfactory means of determining controversies* He, Mr,Beecher, tbodgM differently however, and after doelding that "lhi? great unity of Church and belief is lautmy," goes on to say that, "It was best lor the disciples, and it Is best for the Church and lor the race that vunm h'ii mo worm, ii me aavior dhu reniuiuod *t Jerusalem there wou Id havu Ween tilli?r h iniraolu, or else he would havu reached a venerable age, and been Dol simply a tuirlcle'bul a monster,and lie would nave grown uulike men. He would have been subject to buman ioflrmitiea, and continually Immpered by them. Further tlmi> lliat, tbe bcuetllaol seeing biui would have been permitted oolv toa comparatively small uurnber of ifie buuiao race. .It would liavu wade tbe service ol neelug Ohrlst a burden!" U Is bard to decide which is the must grossly Irrevereul in thlp paragraph, the wild, uuballowcd simulation indulged iu, or the language In which it is ottered. Iu general uo one expects reverence Irom Sir. Ucechcr. If is not a characteristic ol Ids, and we have learned to accept many of his notable, and, let us say, noble utterances, iu such lajhlon as he has been pleased to give them. Out Here It seems to us there is Irreverence in a new direction, and to an extent that is shocking ovcu to some accustomed to the sensational utterances ol Plymonth pulpit and the Tabernacle style of oratory. Mr. Beecber has in general "handled scripture Facts and doctrine pretty freely, dealing out his own interpretation of them after a liberal fashion of his own. But to the great central idea in Christianity, the Idea ol a Saviour, a Divine Man, hp has hitherto beep loyal in bis teaching, and, within limits, reverent and devout in his at- ; terences On this subject be has seemed to feel deeply and fervently, and this feeli?g has been the real strength of ill his best preaching, an$ theTedeemlng feature in the midst ol much that has been unworthy and unpalatable to listeners outside of the Plymouth congregation. To o?? ?? ?14 ? ? ' -1 *v-' uun UUU* IUD CflUCUbC JUBl glYUU UltU ho lias abandoned that faith would be to say too much. But what we do say Is, that It Is one of the strongest proofs Mr. Beecher has yet given or a growing total unfitness to preach anything outside 9 of hlmselt What he iott preach, emphatically, 1s hlmselt?bis ideas, his speculations, his mental experiences, his ieelings; until he has come to believe in . himself mofe thoroughly than In any other (act in the universe. Having : measured all things by that one standard, the result of perlect complacency, what ( remains for him to reverence V And what gospel shall he preach but the gospel according to Beecher ? To all such goe- . pels there comes sn end, and we cannot but think that the end of Mr.Beecher's is not far oS. The intense egoism ot the J man has made him a law to himsell In J matters of religious iaitb, and, we had i almost said, practice. To many others also it has made his every utterance as 1 "law and gospel" in times past; but that j it cannot long be so, we think such teaching as that to which we have called attention is the evidence. A gospel made up of aclf utterances and speculations as wild, as prolauo and profitless as these, must cud where it begun?In sell. < In reading over the report oi Dr. Cum- J mios sermon in the same column, we are c tempted to conclude that tho Iribune re- c porters have by some mistake got the , Right Keverend gentleman's sermon very much .mixed. Otherwise, we are alrald i that Dr. i Cummins himself has not "aearcbed the Scriptures," with the diligence which should at least secure cor. redness as to facts. We cannot, bow- mrpr hilt thfnlr fho ronnfto* mwo? V\/? Ual/1 - . tuv lUUOt ?/*J UV1U responsible in part for ibe statement so I manifestly wldo ol tho truth. The sub- I ject ot the Doctor's sermon was the "Communion Service," and was In part a refutation of the heresy of Transubstantlation. On this point he speaks as follows : (the Italics are our own) "Yet, If Christ was to bo perpetually present in the Communion service, how was It to be accounted for that there was no such doctrine in many books ol. the New Testament ? One of tfle Gospels, St. John's, had not even an account of the Lord's Supper; neither uai it mentioned in the Aeti; neither in the Epittlen. to the Oorint/iiant, Epbesiana, Colossians, or Thessalouiana. ?7 Paul, tho most elaborate ami searching writer on Christianity, dott not tenth thfi il/vtr-inn /if thm Ta C., ?? tnxH .VJ ?*?v iiVfO , These are astonishing assertions, truly, and it they are not Indeed tho result ol a reporter's mistake, wo can only hope lor I Cuinmlos that in changing his prayerbook, be baa not also changed his Bible.
