It has (fought earnestly and persiftently against the pol icy which the money jiower has dictated to the party for the lart ten years the policy that has steadily and purely been making the rich richer and the oor tioorcr; it has opposed the policy of building up a favored class in the United States; it has epposed the financial jxjlicj which makes it possible for one man to escajie his just share of the public burdens, and enjoy all the benefit that the government affords, at the expense of his neighbors ; it has oppo-ed the finan cial policy which concentrates all the wealth of the country in the hands of a few great corporations, and grinds down the millions of honest laborers into abject lioverty. It has favored the policy of per fect equality for all ; it has favored the iHjIicy of so shaping our finances that the man who labors shall receive enough for his labor to afford him a comfortable living for hiinFelf and his family ; it has favored the jolicy of protecting the labor of the country against the agressions of capital.

Stock con tinued to decline, dividends stopped, as sessments began, and the failures among tlie heavy operators were counties.-. A few of tho richest weathered the storm, but every body felt depressed and apprehensive. At this time vengeance was sworn against the bonanza firm, who had all the money on the coast, and Mr. Flood, the head of the firm, was afraid to be seen on the streets. "The tremendouse rise in the Sierra Ne vada, the I'tab, the Justice, the Union Con solidated, and some of the other Nevada stocks has sent everything a booming in San Francisco again, and such wild scenes have not occurred there for many years. Everybody is rich again. Some marvelous stories are told. One man, who have been very rich, met with revert-es, and became very poor during the past six months. His house, his furniture, his credit, everything was gone, and he was, as usual in such caes, avoided by everybody. When the gigantic ri-e in Sierra Nevada occurred he happened to think he had given his wife 1,000 shares of that stock when it was only worth 1 a share, and he never supposed it would be worth more. He hunted up the despised stock, sold it for $300 a share and iKKkele.1 5300,000. Colonel W. F.

The items on which there has been an increase are customs, land tax, and hou-e duty, proper ty and income tax, postoffice and miscella neous ; the decrease has been on excise, stamps, and telegraph service. The whole revenue for the year ended on the last dy of September, 1878, was 79,797,671.

It The long expected series of scrmorw on the "Night Side of City Life," by the Bev T. DeWitt Talmsge, D. D, was begun in the Brooklyn TaKrnacle yete ntey morn ing, .e sermon had been announced on Sunday previous and dtiriiv the week. This, couplet with the p-sior's plan of fir-t exploring all the lnuuis of iniquity Kfore preaching about tliera, drew together a lar ger audience lhan the church had ever held Kfore. Every seat was filled; the aisles were blocked with camp stool-, the vacant spaces under the gallerie- and be hind the rows of pews were crowded with standing auditors, and even the window sills and railings inside the church afforded room for late arrivals. The building held over seven thousand per-ors, while surg ing crowd of two thousand more blocked up Schermerhorn street in front of the church, preventing vehicles from passing. A great proportion of the audience was comixs-ed of voung men, and it was to them especially that Mr. Talmage addressed his sermon. IJut if anywhere were who went to hear any aolO);y for vice or any gilding of its allure ments thev were utterly disappointed. The preacher "dealt rather in generalities, and rarelv descendeel to detail. He portraved the awful consequeccs of yu in some of ihe most vigorous word painting of which he is callable. His voice was clear and loud, so that he could K easily heard by the crowd in the corridors, and occasionally those otit sids could catch portions of the tcrmon. Aftr the u-ual preliminary eserci-cs during which the immense assemblage sang with vigor the hymns, "Ilevive us again," and Mcs-js, lover of my soul ;" and after Arbuckle had played the usual cornet solo Mr. Talmage arose and commenced his ser mon. RESOLVED TO EXrlJRE. ' The text was taken from Ezekiel, viii. S "Then said He unto me, son of man djg now in the wall, and when I had diggeel in the wall I Kheld a door, and he said, go in nd behold the wicked abominations that they do here. So I went iu and siw, and beheld every form of .creeping things and abominable Kasts." So this minister of religion, liekiel, said Mr. Talmage, is coininandeel to make ex ploration of the sin of his day. lie did not stand outside guessing what it was. He did not say. "O, Lorel, I dare not go, please let me off," but he went in and saw and re ported I, as a minister of religion, felt I had a divine commission to explore the iniquities of our cities, so I went in, saw and beheld. As Mr. Talmage said this he out-tretched his arms Kfore the people, as much as to say, ''And here I am, to lell you all about it," cati-icg great laughter and applause. Brought up in this country, he continmd I had never seen the hiding places of iniq tiity until this autumn. By the grace of God defended I have never sown any wild oats. laughter. I somehow have Ken able to tell from books something about the iniquities of great cities, and to preach against them. But I thought there mu-t be an intimation alut them that had never Ken spoken about, and I said, "I will ex plore. I saw tens of thousands of men going down, anil if there were a spiritual concussion as well as a physical 'concussion the whole air would K filled with the crack and rumble and thunder of the demolition. I found the gate of the cemetery where lost souls arc hurried and I said, "I will ee plore." I, as an officer of the army of Jes us Christ went on this battle field. If joti have a like commission, go ; if not, stay away. Do I think this will induce others to go there J I answer, ye-; just as the dcs. criptinn of the yellow fever in Grenada would lead people to go there-.

My business is to preach the truth, and the wider audience I get through the new-pi. jer press the wider my field. As the secu lar and religions papers of the newspaper press of the I'nited States and the Canadas, and of England and Ireland, and Scotland and Australia, and New Zealand are giving me every week 3,000,0u0 souls for an au dience I am indebted to the pre-s anyhow.

It was ten o'clock of a calm, clear, sttrlit night that our carriage rolled away withtis from the mo-t Kautiful part of the city down into the places where gambling and crime and death hold dreadful carnival. As the norses halted Tfe passed into a world of which we were practically ignorant Not many signs of death, but the dead were there. As I moveil through these places I s lid, "This is the home of lost souls." It was a Dante's Inferno. Many things there were to fill the eye with tears of pity. There were moral corpses on the stair, corpses in the gallery, coriM in the garden. Iyper metlejier. but no handageel mouth kept back the breath. I felt as though sitting on an island coast against which a Etiro clydon had driven a thousand dismasted hulks, and every moment more blackened hulks rolled in, and while I was waiting for ihe going down of the storm and the lull of the sea I Kthought myself, "This is an everlasting storm ; these billows al ways rage" On each carcass that strewed the Kach already a vulture had alighted the Ioog-Kakedfillhy vulture of despair now iiecking into corruption and now on its black wing wiping the blrxsl of a soul. No lark, no robin, no chaffinch, but vul turcs, vultures, vultures! First of all I have to say that the acred retort abont the magnificence of these haunts of iniquity is apocryphal. I had Ken told of masterpices of painting, mar velous music, Kwitching fountains, impe rial upholstery. Masterpieces ? There was not a painting worth $5, laying aside the frame. Great daubs of color a cross le tween a chromo and a splash of paint Mu sic? The homeliest creatures I ever saw squawked discord, accompanied by planers out of tune. Upholstery with two charac teristics red and cheap Tinsel gew-gaws, tawdriness, lrippery seemingly bought at a second hand furniture store and never paid for. Here and there was a poor soul on which was the crown of Kanty, hut nothing comparable with the Christian loveliness which you may any day see on our great thoroughfare. Young man, you are a stark fool if you go to these places of dissipation to hear music or see fine up ho'stery or Kautiful and gracious counte nances. However great the pretence, sin is almost alway poor. RURAL VICTIM'. I have also, my friends, to report that in my midnight exploration I saw what amazed me more than.I can tell. It will take pain to many hearts so far off I can not comfort them. In all of these haunts of inequity I found yonng men on whose cheek was the ruddy coior of country health. They had heard how gayly a boat swings on the vt of the maelstrom, and had ventured. On, my God ! will a few weeks do such awlul work for a young man? I saw such a young man when he first confronted evil I saw him immovable, as much as to say, "I am mightier than sin." Then I saw him consulting with sin. Then I saw him doubt and waver as the shadow ot sad reflection crossed his thoughts and some holy memory seemed lo call him back. Goodness and sin had a struggle, but sin triumphed. I saw him surrender to darkness and death an ox to the slaughter. Oh, my soul ! is this the end of all the good advice? Has this cluster from the country vineyard been thrown into the great wine press, where despair and "anguish and death tramped, and the vintage u a vintage of blood? God pity the country lad, unsuspecting and so easily Ktrayed ! O young man from the farmhouse among the hills, why are you so bent on killing her who gave you birth ? I see something on your forehead and on your hands and on your feet. It is red. What is it? The blood of a mother's broken heart Of what did she die?

In the ponderous book of A God it win be recorded lor ever lasting ages to read, "You killed her." Before I give ycu the last item of this morning's di-course I want you to recognize how unfair have Ken all the anticipated remarks about this sermon, how unfair have liven all the suppositions that I would so portray sin that it would be made attrac tive. I ask you fair minded men and wo man whether I have not portrayed sin this morning to be a creeping, disgusting tiling. and so far from making young men go to the-e places of iniquity I will ask you if it has Ken the whole drift of my sermon to dnve them away from sin? Before I get through, by the help of the Eternal God, I will save 10,000 men (aptdau-e) and in execution of this mission I defy all eirth and hell. A PREAJI SOT ALL A DREAM. But I was going to tell you of an inci dent ot my exploration. As we passed out of one of the-e places there passed me, go ing in, a fare in which there was sorrow only half covered ntt by an assumed joy.

Then she cried, Oh, for my father's hou-e ! Oh, that I might die in the cottage of embowering honey stickle' Oh, the past! Oh, the future! Oh, father' Oh, mother; Oh, God' But the s'orin of that August night culminated and wrote with finger of lightning on the sky, "The way of the transgressor is hard." Then thunder peal afttr thunder ial utter ed, "Which forsaketh the guide of her youth and forsaketh the covenant of her God destroyed without reur.dy," and the charm behind echoed it, "Destroyed with out remedy." And ihe chasm before echoed it, "Destroyed without remedy."

The escajie of the Cheyennes from their reserva tion, immediately under the eyes of the commanding officer at Fort Beno and the Indian Agent near that point has cau-ed much hot blood Ktween the rival friends of the military and civil administration of In dian affairs. The military claim that it is the duty of the agents, who mingle with the Iudiaas in their every-elay life, to keep ad-vi-ed of their movements, and give the mil itary timely notice when their services are required. The agents claim that the com manding officer has as much chance to know the movements of the Indians as they. In the meantime, in the midst of the wail which comes from the relatives and friends of the victims on the Sappa, the Beaver and the Bepublican, there is a demand for an investigation how such a body of Indians could rLUHE THE VIGILANCE of the officenof the Government, military or civil, and prosecute, unpunished, their murderous errands. The Indian agents re Irt that ninety-two warriors and nearly 400 women of the Cheynnes and Arrapa hoes made their escape, and that it is very remarkable that they have not been over taken, encumKred as they are with all their camp equipage and herds. The In dian Bureau repel the insinuation that they were responsible on account of short rations, and mention the fact that nearly 5,000 of these same tribes remained behind, with rations enough to satisfy them.

We loDg for the more elegant pur suits, or the ways and fashions of the town. But the farmer has the most safe and natu ral occupation, and ought to find life sweeter, if less highly reasoned, than any other. He alone, strictly speaking, has a home. How can a man take root and thrive without land? He writes his history upon his field. How many ties, how many resources he has ; bis friendships with his cattle, Lis team, lib dog, his trees, the sat isfaction in his growing crops, in his im proved fields; his intimacy with Nature, with birds and Kast, and with the quicken ing elemental forces; his co-operations with the cloud, the sun, the seasons, heat, wind, rain, frost Nothing wUl take the va rious social distempers which the city and artificial life breed out of a man like farm ing, like direct and loving contact with the soil, It draws out the poison.
