THF KXTEHPR1SK, WEDNESDAY. MARCH I.V18S9 3 i ! I 4 ! )1 J ; BRIBERY. Bermon by Bev. Dr. T. Dowltt Talmage, D. D., Oa the ' Wrong TJe of Mony" Cor i rnptloa in Politic the Crylns Kvll of the AtT Dishonesty to All Walk J of Life. Tha text chosen for tlio subject of Dr. Talmage'i recent sermon was L Timothy, rl, 8i "They tbat will be rich fall loto many, foolish and hurtful luaU, which drown men In destruction and perdition." Thetis the Niagara falls over which rnh a multitude of souls, namely the detcrmina tionto have money anyhow, rightor wrong;. - Tell me how a man fret bli money and 'what be doet with It and I will tell you hi character, and what will be tali destiny to this world tnl the next. I rropose to apeak this morning about some of the ruin' one mode of (retting money, i We recently passed through a national ejection In which It has been estimated . thirty million, dollar were expended. I think about twenty million of It were pent in out-and-out bribery. Both parties raised all they could for this purpose. But that was only on a large scale what has been done on a smaller toale forllfty years and la all department. . Politics from being the trtenoe of good . government has often bran bedraggled Into the synonym for truculonov and turpitude. A monitor sin. plausible, potint, pe-t'far. out, It baa gone forth to in its d e dful work in all ages. Its two hands'are lotten with leprosy. It keeps its right hand hid den In deep pocket. The left hand la Clenched, and with its ichorous knuckle It taps at the door of th court rom, the legis lative ball, the Congress and t he Parliament Tbe door swings o;wn and the mounter enters, and glides through the aisle of ti e council ctanber as sottly os a slippered pace, and then it take Its right bnnd from Ita deep pockot and odors it in salutation to Judge or legislator. If tbat band be taken, and the palm of the Intruder crest the palm or the offlol.il, tbe leprosy crosses from palm to palm In round blotch, round as a gold angle and the virus spreads, and the doom la fixed, and tbo victim perishes. Let bribery, accursed of Qod and man, atand up for trial. ' Tbe Bible arraign It again and again. Samuel says of bis two sons who became Judges: "They took bribes and perverted Judgment." David says of some of his pur- . aaers: "Their right band Is full of bribes." Amos says of nme men In his Jay: "They take a bribe nnd turn aside the poor In the (ante." Bill h is foretell tbe crushing blows f God's indignation, deolring: "Fire shall consume tbe tabernacles of bribery." It Is no light temptation. Tho mightiest nave fallen under it Blr Francis Bacon, Lord Cbanoellor. of England, founder of our modern philosophy, author of "Novum Or ganum." and a who1o,llbrary of books, the leading thinker of hi century, so precocious that when a lit t'e child be wo anked by Queen Elizabeth, How old are you!" here ponded, "I am twoyparsynungerthan yon' Majesty's happy rolgn ;" of whose oratory Ben Jonson wrote, 'The fear of every nan that beard blm was lest be should make an end;" having an Income which yon would aupposa would bave put blm beyond the temptation of bribery thirty-six thousand dollars a year, and Twickenham court a gift and princely es tate in Hertfordshire and Gorhamtrary yet Binder this temptation to bribery falling flat . etata ruin, and on bis confession of taking bribes, giving as excuse that all his prede cessors took them; he was fined two bun 4 red thousand dollars, or what corresponds with our two hundred thousand dollars, and imprisoned In London tower.' Bo also Lord Cbanoellor Maocleifleld fell; so also- Lord Chancellor Waterbury perished. The black chapter tn English, Irish, French and American politic U the chapter of bribery. Borne of yon remember the Pacific Hall sob- " indie. Most of you remember the awful tragedy of tbe Credit Hoblller. Under the ' temptation to bribery Bonedlct Arnold sold the fort In tbe Highlands for HI. 575. For this sin Oorgey betrayed Hungary, Ahttho phel forsook David and Judas kissed Christ When I see so many of tbe illustrious going Iowa under this temptation, it makes me think of tbe red dragon spoken of tn Revela tion, with seven head and ten horns and even crowns, drawing third part of the stars of Heaven down arter him. The lob bies of the legl lature of this country con trol tbe country. Tbe land is drunk with . trlbery. . "O," says some one, "there's no need of talking against bribery by promise or by dollars, because every man he his prloe." . I do not beliove. It Even heathenism and the dark age have furnished specimens of Incorruptibility. A cadi or Smyrna bad ewe brought before him on trial A man gave blm 500 ducats tn bribery. The case came on. The briber bad many wltne ses. The poor man on the other side had no wit nesses. At the close of the case the cadi aid: "Thi poor man hat no witnesses, ha thinks; 1 shall produce In his behalf Ave hundred witnesses aralnst tbe other side." And then pnlllngout the hag of ducats from nder the ottoman, be dashed it down at the feet of the briber, styingi "I give my decis ion against you." Epatnlnondaa, offered , bribe, said! "I will do this thing If it be right and if it be wrong ello'our (roods can - aot persuade me." Fabrlclua of the Roman Senate was offered bribe by Pyrrhos of Maoedon. Fabriclus answered, "What an example this would be to the Roman people; you keep your riches anil I will kocp my overty and reputation." The Presldont of tho A mnrlcan Congress aiming the American revolution. General Roe I, was offered ten thousand guinea by foreign e-imnrasionnrt if lie would betray this oountry. He rop'ledt "Gentlemen, I - am a very poor man, but tell your King be Is not rich enough to buy me" But why go : so far, whan you and I, If we move in hon orable society, know men and women, who by all the concentrated force of eurtn and ' kell could not be bribed. Tboy would no more be bribed than you would think of , tempting an angel of light to exchange . heaven for the pit To offer bribe is vil lainy but it is a very poor compliment to , the man to whom it is offered. I I have not much faith in those people who go about bragging bow much they could get If they would only sell out Those women ' .who complain that they are very often lo-ul-vl need to understand thst there is so, thing la their carriage to Invite Insult There are men at Albany ant at Harris burg and, at Washington who would no more be approached by bribe than a pirate boat - with few cutis ses would dare to attack British man-of-war with two banka of gun a each side loaded to the touch bole. They re Incorruptible men, and tbey are the few 'men who are to save the city and save the mod. Meanwhile, my advice is to all peo ple to keep ont of politic unless ton are tavalnerable to thi style of temptation. Indeed, If yon are naturally strong, yon aeed religious buttressing. Nothing but tbe grace of God eaa sustain our public onea and make them what we . wish. I wish that there might come an old fashioned revival of religion, that It might break out tn Congress and In the legltuv tare and bring many of the leading Repub licans and Democrat dew on tbe anxious eat of repentance. That day will come or ' something belter, for the Bible lcc ares tbat : kings and queens ahall become nnralng j fathers and mo her to the ohurch, and if the greater In authority, then certainly the , leu a. My oharge also to parent Is, remember ' that this evil of bribery of en b-glns in the j home clreln and In the nur cry. Do not 1 b lb1 your children. T-io'i them lodo that ' which it riant, and not because of the ten ! cents or thi orange yon will give them. There is a grout difference b 'tween reward- ' Ing virtue and making the poll's thereof ( to impelling motive, mat rami wuu i honest merely b vause "honesty la the bet policy" la already moral bankmvt : My charge Is to yon In all department of life, steer clear of bribery, ail of you. 1' vert man and woman at some time will be tempted to do wrong for oompnnatlin. Tbe bribe may not be offered tn money. It may be offered tn social position. Tt its remem ber thst there I a dav coming wh n the most secret transaction of private life and f publlo life will come up for pub lc repre hension. We can not bribe death we on not bribe sloknets, we can not bribe tbe grave, we can not bribe the Judgm nts of that God who thunders agaln-t t Is sin, Fie I" said Cardinal beaufnrt "Del can't death be hired 1 Is money nothing! must I die, and so rloh I If the owning of the whole realm would save me I could get It by policy or by purchase by money." No; death would not be hired then; be will not oe hired now. Men of the world orten regret that they have to leave the r money here when tbey go away from the world. You can tell from what th"y say in their last hours that oneof their rhlef sorrow Is that they have to leave tbelr money. I break that delusion. I tell that bribe taker that he will take his money with him. (tod will wrap It up in your shri ml. or put it in the palm of your hand in resurrection, and there It will lie, not the cool, bright, shining gold as it was on the day when you sold your vote and yonr moral principle; bu' there it will He, a hot metal, burning and consuming your hand fc ever. Or. If there be enough of it for a chain, then it will full from the wrlt clanking the feller-of an eternal captivity. The bribe I- an everlast ing posset Ion. You take It for time, yon take It for eternity. Borne day in t c next world, when you sre longing for svmna'by. you will feel on your cheeU a kin. Looking p you will find it to be .1 ml a, who took thirty pieces of silver a a brllea d finished th bargain by putting an Ii f moua kiss on tbe pure c' eek of his divine Vaster. Another wrong use of money Is seen Inthe abuse of trust funds. Kvery man during the course of his life, on larger or am Her scale baa the property of others commit'ed to his keeping. He Is ao far a sat -ty deposit, he Is sn administrator, and holds In Ms band the Intereat of the family of a deceased friend. Or he is an nttomey. end thrnurn bis custody goes the payment from debtor to creditor, or he Is the el ector for a business bouse, which compeo-a'es him for the re sponsibility; or he Is a trnnanfr for a chari table Institution, and lio holds airs con tributed for the suffering; or he la an ofuVlal of the city or the Bta'e, or thn na ion, and taxes, and subsidies, a id salaries, and U' plies are tn his keepinr. It is as so'emn a trust aa God ran mak It It Is concen trated and multlp led confidences. On that man depends the support of a bereft house hold, or the morals of dependent, or the light movement of thousand wheel of social mechanism. A man may dt what he will with bis own, but he who abuse trust fund, In that one act commit tb. ft, false hood, perjury, and becomes, in all the inten sity of the word, a miscreant How many widows and orphan there are with noth log between them and starvation but sewing machine or held up out ef th vortex ct destruction simply by the thread of needle, red wHta their own heart's blood, who a little while ago had. by fntJier and husband, left them a competency. What la the matter! Tbe administrator or the executor have sctlfloed It running risks with It that tbey would not have dared to encounter In tt-elr own private affair. How often it is that a man will earn a live lihood by the sweat of his brow, and then die. and within few month all the estate goes Into the stock gambling rapids of Wall street How often it Is tbat ynu have known the man tn whom trust fund were com mlttd taking them out of the savings bank and from trust companies and administra tor, turning old hotne-teads into hsrdcah, and then putting the entire estate Into the vortex of speculation. Emb-tzlement 1 an easy word to pronounce, but It bas ten thousand ramification of horror. There 1 not city that ha not suffered frrm the abuse of trust funds. Where I tbe court house, or the city hall, or the Jail, or the post-oIBce, or the host'llol that In the building of It bas not hsd a political job!

For a boy who steals loaf of bread from a cornergrocer to keep bis mother from starving to death, a prison; but for defranders who abscond with half million of dollars a castle on the Rhine, or, walling until tbe offense Is forgotten, then a castle on the Hudson I Another remark needs to be made, and that I that people ought not to go into plueee, Into builnea or Into petition where the temptation I mightier than tbelr char acter. If there be large umt of money to be bandied and the man la not ur of his own Integrity; yon have no right to run an nnseaworthy craft Into an euroclydnn. A man can tell by tbe sense of weaknese or strength In the pretence of bad oppor tunity whether be la In safe place. How many parent make an awful mistake when tbey put their boya In banking houses, and stores, and shop, and factorie and place of solemn trust, without once d scaling whether they can endure the temptation. You give tbe boy plenty of money and have no account of It end make the way down become very easy, and yon may put upon him pressure that he can not stand. There st men who go into positions run oi lemptav Uon, oonsldorlng only the one fact that tbty arc lucrative positions. I say to tbe young people here tola morning, dishonesty will not pay In tb is world or tbe world to come. ' An abbott wanted to buy a piece of ground and the owner would not sell It but tb ewnerflnetly oonaented toletltto him nn til he could raise one crop, and the abbelt owed acorns, crop of two hundred ysarst Aad 1 tell yon, young man, that the dliboa titles which you plant m yon heart and lift will seem to be very Insignificant hut tbey Wlugrowup natu may wuiovsrsnaoow yon wif horrible derkuees, overshadow all time and all eternity.

You have solemn trust that tod boa given you. In thU vast assemblage their may be tome who bave mlsuppioprlated trust fund. Put them back, or, if ynu huve sb bopolessly In volved thorn thiil you can not put them back, confos the whole thing to thoae whom yon have wronged, and you will sleep better at niirhta, and you will have tbe better onunoo fur your aoul. What a tad thing It would be if, after you are dead, your udniiul trutor should find out from tbe account bonk, or from tbe lark of vouchers, that ynu were not nn:y bankrupt in estate, but t but you lost your soul. If all the trust fund that havo been misap propriated should fly suddenly to tbelr owners, and all the property that has been purloined shou d suddenly go back to it owner it would crush into ruin every city iu America. A blustering young man arrived at a hotel In the West on 1 be nw man on the slde wa k. and in a rough way at no man baa ri" lit to ad Ireti a laborer, said to him, "Carry this trunk op-tt ilrs." The man car ried the trunk up atairt and came down, and th n the young man gave him a quarter of dollar which wo marked, and lnteud uf being twe tv-flve cents It was worth only twenty cent. Ihen Urn young nun gave his card to the lab ror and said, "Ynu take this up to Governor Grin t; I want to aee hlra." "Ah," aid the liborer, 'Jam Governor Grlmet." "O, tald tho young man, " you I excuse me." Then the Governor said: "I was much impressed by the 1 t'er you wio'e me asking for a certain cm e In my gift, nod I bud made up my mind you sh uld bave It; but young man who vt 111 cheat a laborer out of five oonts w't'M swindle the government of the PI to If he got his bund on It ldon't want you. tiool morning, blr." It never pays. Nci'hor in this world nor in the world to come will It pay. I dn not supio-e there cror was abetter i ciirien of honvSty than was found In the Duke of Wei invtnn He marched with his army over the French 1 rontlor, and the army was suffering, and he bunllv knew hiw to getalong.

Yet at that very time tht French peasantry were bringing their valu able to b m to keep. A celebrat d writer tavt of the transactions "Nothing ran be grander or more nobly original than thi ad m Ion.

Oh 1 Is It not high time that we preached tht morals of tb gospol. right beside tb faith of the gospel! Mr. Froude, the cele brated English historian has Written of hit own eon nt y thet' remarkab'e words: "From the great house In tbe city i f London to the vllaire grocer, tbe commercial life of En gland bas been aturated with frai.d. Bo deep it has gone that a strictly houestly trades man can hardlv hold his ground against compel itlon. You ran no longer trust tbat any article you buy la the thing which It pretends to be. We have false wel.'hts, false measures, cheating and thoddy every where. And yet the clergy bave seen this grow up in absolute Indifference. Many hundiedi of sermons bave I beard In England, many dissertation on tbe mytterles of the faith, on the divine mission of tbe clenry, on btb ons and Justification, and theory of good work, aud verba Inspiration, and the eftt cacy of the lacrameota; but during all these thirty wonderful year, never one that lean recoiled on comrnun honesty." Now, tbat may b-i an exaggerated state ment of things in England, but I am very certain that in all put of t leeaithwe need to preach the moral iliee of tbe gospel right along beside tbe faith of tbe gospel.

Borne of yon remember that out Weet In tbat year, oa atormy night hur ricane blew down part of railroad bridge.

There Waa girl living la ber father cabin pear the diss tar, and tbe heard the crash of the freight train aadsbe knew that la few momenta aa express train waa due. .

Bhe was one mile off from the telegraph station, but fortunately the train wa lute. With cut and bruised feet the flew like tha wind. Coming up to the telegraph station, panting with almost deathly exhaustion, she had only strength onough to shout, "The brldtra it down," when she dropped unoonsoious snd could hard y be resuscitated. The message waa aent from that station to the next station and the train halted, and th it n'ght that hrave girl saved the live of hundred of piwsengnn and saved many hornet from desolation. But every street It a track, and every style nf b tslness is a track, and every day la tra-'k, and every night Is a track, and multitude- un lnr tbe power of temptation come sweeping on and sweeping down towards p-irilt raging and 'errldu.

AMERICAN WOMEN. Msg O'ttell Notes an Abaane of SUpld Looking Faees Among Them, Tbat which struck me most In America, from fUst to last, It, the total absence ot ttupid looking faces. AU are not hand tome, but all are Intelligent and beaming with activity. In my opinion, It It In thit that American beauty mainly consist. In the large allies of the East the first thing which cught my attention was the thin ness of tbe man and the plumpness of tbe women. This seemed to hint that the former lived In furnace of activity and the latter in cotton wool. This Impression toon deepened into oonvictlon. It teemed to mo that her lot waa a near to being per fection at an earthly lot could be. A respect amounting to reverenoe it shown for ber, and it appears to be the chief aim of ber protectors to surround bor with luxury and make her p ith through life a tunny one. Bo far as adding to ber mental and physical grace goes, this plan of making every woman an uncrowned quoon bas an swered compl 'toly. Hoeing her high poal tl n, she h is set hemolf to work to fill It be comingly, and it is the cultivation of Amor, lea's dauKhtors, it it their charming Inde pendence and a consciousness ot their power, that mado them 16 attractive and render American society so delightful tq the tt ranger. In their treatment of women, the Amorican nilirht give more than one loason to the men of the old Old World, even to tbe Frenchmen, who, In the matter of politeness, lives good deal, I am afraid, on the reputation of bis ancestors. Tht respect for women In America toomed to me to be perfectly disinterested, purely Dlatonia In France tblt respect almost borders on gallantry. A Frenchman will always stand bock to lot woman pass, bnt be will grnorally profit by tbe occasion to take a good look at her. If aa outsider be competent to form an opinion, I veuture to aay that tbe Americas woman does not render to man tithe of the devotion sh receives from blm. A French wife repays a husband's devo tion by protecting bis interest aa Amort can too often reiwyt it by breaking Into hit capital Forum. WESTMINSTER ABBEY.

Work and Recreation. Rest It aa needful aa work to man, end I work and rest ought to be secured in duo proportions by every man. But that which Is rest to one man would be work toanothor man. end so vice versa. Every man bat cer tain klndt ot work which he loves to do for their own take, nod which therefore are restful kinds ot work, wbllo other kinds of work must be done for simple duty's take, and to are exhausting kinds of work. It behooves every man to bave a care to give tht fitting measure of time to these two sort of work severally. As Lord Boron says: "In studies, whatsoever a man com mandeth open himselfc, let blm set houret for it But whatsoever it tgroeablo to hit nature, lot blm take ao cars for any set time, for his thought will file to it them selves, so aa the apeoet of other business or studies will tuffloe.
