Speaking of Southern progress, Henry

says: "The other day there was
a man buried in Pickens County. He
was dead, and they were putting him
away. In digging a grave for him
they dug through three feet of marble
as pure as any Parisian sculptor ever
moulded, and yet the marble slab that
went at the head of his grave was
imported from Vermont. Although
pine forests were all around him, the
pine colli 11 in which he lay was imorted
from Philadelphia. Although iron
was in the hills within a hundred feet
of his grave, the nails in his coffiin
came from Pittsburg. Although there
was bard wood in tbe same forest, the
handles of the shovels and picks that
dug bia grave were imported from
Cincinnati. Tbe truth is that his own
County, as rich or richer in natural
resources than auy in the State, furnished
nothing for that funeral but the
hole in tbe ground and the corpse.
He was clothed in shoes from Massachusetts,
suit from Chicago, a shirt
from Cincinnati, a hat from Lynn, and
his own County furnished nothing but
tbe marrow in his bones and tbe blood
in his veins."

Extracts from Christian Neighbor
TwoCJreat Blumlers or Congress. '
"(Jreat men are not always wise;
neither do the ajred understand judg
nu-nt." To us it seems difficult to !
account for the scheme which provides j
for an enormous and expensive increase
of the United States navy,
fortifications and war vessels, involving
of course a corresponding outfit of
ammunition, and men. The gods of
whiskey, powder and military glory
must have maddened those men in
Congress who carried that measure 1
through. Symptoms?Vanity, ambi- 1
lion, blindness ravimr. The neoolo in

of officers and others that will he
required to man the vessels and hold
the forts in time of peace, waitiug for
something to call them into exercise.
Such men as think they see the need
of hurrying up preparations for war,
will not be long in finding or making
an excuse for using them. Much
wisdom is not required to get up a
Concerning the other stupendous
blunder?"The Chinese Exclusion
bill"?and also the one already
referred to, we lind our own views so
well expressed iu tne louowiug amcie
by Josiah W. Leeds in Banner and
Herald, as published also iu the
Messenger of Peace, that we give the
article entire lu lieu of what we might
further say, but uot say so well:
The Shadow ok War.-Is it not
occasion for profound regret, that
whereas the platform of that political
party which four years ago contained
a strong enunciation of the desirability
of applying the principle of arbitration
to the settlement of international
disputes, should this year be altogether
silent upon so momentous a subject ?
And yet, u strenuous demand such as
has sprung up m Congress tne present
session for greatly increased expenditures
on war vessels and coasts fortiti- ;
cations, consequent, in the main, upon ,
the agitation of the fisheries question,
would ill consort, it must be admitted,
with a platform plea for the peaceful
settlement of all international disputes.
It is gratifying, nevertheless, to observe,
that the declaration of principles
of the political party which favors
' home protection" as against the terrible
liquor-drinking evil, forbears, on
the one hand to ask for any war expenditures,
while with consistency, on
the other, it places itself upon the high
plane of the amicable adjustment of
international and trade disputes. A
woman's paper published in Pitsburgh,
the White Itibbon, favoring the above
humane and sensible plea, thus remarks
"Closer bonds of friendship between
the women of diirerent nations may
help to strengthen the idea of interna<>
inn ! n 1 lia onff lnmmif nf
uwuai ai um uuvu. in ua oumviJLitui v-/i
all dillerences ; that thus the whole
military system, now draining the very
life-blood and wealth of the people in
the old world, may be completely overturned,
and war, with its crimes and
miseries, ended forever."
Our naval authorities are now felicitating
themselves on the fact that our
former ell'eto navy is rapidly being replaced
by a lleet of war vessels of
stauncher build and greater speed than
perhaps those of any other nation.
And it is greatly to be feared, at the
same time, that, going forward in
our boasted strength, we will not fail
to manufacture opportunities for bringing
those great vessels and big guns
into deadly requisition. We have already,
as a nation, represented by the
treaty-making branch of the government,
perpetrated within a few days
such an act of gross indignity towards
the Empire of China (in the Chinese
Exclusion hill matter,) as would have
sulllced, had it occurred in connection
with any of the European powers, to
have called out a declaration of war.
For the present the great empire beyond
the Pacific may smother its
wrath, and no overt hostilities ensue,
but, meanwhile, we have been instructing
the Mongolians concerning the
most improved military and naval
appliances, and attheportof Shanghai
they have established an immense
arsenal and navy-yard, which, should
the day arrive when the autocrat at
Pekin should order an avengiug host to
pour forth, may deal terrible retribution
for the wrongs inllicted upon
Chsna by the opium wars and the Exclusion
edicts of the Anglo-Saxons.
Only by getting down to the beneficent
principle of the golden rule in our
State affairs, will our country be saved
from those awful calamities which
will otherwise sureley overtake us as a
judgment for our national and .social
crimes.?Banner and Herald.
Under a Cross Fire.
A set sermon by a Christian Minister,
in a Christian house of worship,
on a Christian Sabbath clay, to an
organized military company in full
uniform, (with or without arms,)
would seem a gathering together of varieties,
if not iueougruties. Would not
the minister be in a sort of close place?
He must be careful not to offend his
special hearers who have honored him
with the privilege, if not a call, to
preach "before" them. What hymn
suitable will he announce? What
text will he take? Thou shalt not ;
kill ? The weapons of our warfare are
not carnal? I came not to destroy
men's liyes, but to save them ? They
that hike the sword shall perish with
the sword? Recompense to no man
evil for evil ? Overcome evil with
good? What text in the gospel of!
Christ the Christian Scriptures, would i
or could the preacher take that would
not be a "broadside" against the
profession of carnal soldiery? Unless'
he should wrest the scripture so as to 1
make carnal warfare compatible with
the orders of the ''Captain of our sal- j
valion," and thereby compliment the |
men before him whose training and (
profession is at manifest enmity with
tho teaching, the spirit and the practice
of Christianity. Would not the |
preacher be under a "cross-lhv? ,

The recent Fair (last week) in the
suburbs of this city wa,s according to
\'ocai suuemenis 01 some wno were on
the grounds, very good in the matter
nf slock, hut scanty in other exhibits,
notably so in the products of
the farm. ~
The horse racing, more and' more
every year, monopolizes the interest of
the people who attend the fair; in fact
it seems that horse racing is running
away with the fair and with the remnants
of the consciences of some perC
* ml *
sons who a few years ago were out- ,
spoken against this sport so corruptive
of "good manners." The tendency of
horse-racing is to lower the standard
of the morals of those who in any
way patronize it. Following this demoralizing
practice will naturally and
certainly lead to the lower and more
disreputable forms of gambling.
The evils connected with horseracing
at the fair are not confined
to horse-racers and their patrons but
aflect more or less other attendants at
the fair, also the people of the city and
of other sections of the State. No association
of names, no patronage of
any class of men or women, can keep '-1
horse racing from sinking to a lower
level the morals of any community,
even to a level with the religion of
such "church" people as "see no harm
in it" and just look on.
That "State" ball and supper in the
State House during the Fair week har- *;
monizes iu moral effect with the
racing. In the former the men and
women flange round, in the latter the
horses run round.
If we are not in error the Legisla- ' 'M
ture for several years past has been giving
$2,500 of the "surplus" (?) to the

to be expended, we will not attempt to
say how, for we do not know. Nor
can we tell by what authority ladies |
and gentlemen from various sections |
of the State are permitted year after
year to use the State House as a place
for dancing and feasting. We suBpect
that our criticJsm of these unnecessary
adjuncts of the Fair may not accord with
the views of some of the people.

who differed from President Cleveland J

were so incensed at his action that
they publicly cowhided him for hav-% |
