Some of the Reanlta of the Non-Obaervane of the Day-Thoae Who Strive to Dese crate the Day ol Rest Are Kne mlea of God and the Fnblle Weal. The theme of Rer. Dr. Talmago'i re cent sermon through the press wag one of world-wldo interest, tlio subject be ing: "The necessity of guarding the Christian Sabbath against invasions that aim nt its destruction." The text elected was: Ex. xxxi. 13, "Verily, my Sabbath ye shnll keep." The wisdom of cessation from hard labor one day out of the seven is almost universally acknowledged. The world has found out that it can do less workr in seven days than in six, and that the fifty-two days of the yenr devoted to rest arc an addition rather than a sub traction. Experiments have been mado in all departments. The grent Lord Castlereagh thought he could work his brain three hundred and sixty-five days In the yenr, but after awhile broke down and committed suicide; and Wll bcrforce mid of him, ''Poor Castle rea'h! This is the result of the non jbservancc of the Sabbath!" A celebrated merchant declared; "I should have been a maniac long ago but for Iho Sabbath." The nerves, tho brain, the tnuKclt:, the bones, the en tire physical, intellectual and moral nature cry out for the Sabbatic rest. What la true of man is, for tho most part, true of the bruto. Travelers have found out that they come to trteir places of destination sooner when they let their horses rest by the way on the Snbliath. What is the matter with those forlorn creatures harnessed to some of the city cars? Why do they stumble and stagger and fall? It ia for the lack of the Sabbatic rest. In other days, when tho herdsmen drove their sheep and cuttle from tho far west down to the seaboard, it was found out by experiment that those herdsmen and drovers who halted over the seventh day got down sooner to the seaboard than thohe who pasre I on without the obsorvunce of the holy Sabbath. The fishermen off the coast of Newfoundland declare that thotc men during the yenr catch the most fish who stop during the Lord's day. When I nuked the Rocky Mountain locomotive engineer why he changed locomotives when it seemed to lie a straight route, he said: "We have to let the locomotive stop and cool off or the machinery would soon break down." Men who made large quanti ties of salt were told that If they allowed their kettles to cool over Sunday they would submit themselves to a great deal of damage. The experiment was made, some observing the Sabbath and some not observing the Sabbath. Those who allowed the (ires to go down and the kettles to cool once a week were compelled to spend only a few pennies in the way of repairs; while In the cones where no Sabbath was observed, many dollars were demanded for repairs. In other words, intelligent man, dumb hecstt and dead machinery cry ont for the Lord's day. Hut while the attempt to kill the Sabbath day by the stroke of nx and Hail and yardstick has beautifully failed, it U proped in our day to drown the Sabbath by flooding It with secular amusements. They would bury it very decently under the wreath of the target company and to the music of all brazen instruments. There are to-day in the different cit ies, ten thousand hands and ten thou sand pons busy In attempting to cut ont the heart of our Christian Sabbath, and leave It ableedingskeleton of what it once was. The effort is organized and tremendous, and unless the friends of Christ and the lovers of good order shall rouse up right speedily, their ser mons and protests will be uttered after the castle ia taken. There are cities in the land where the Sabbath has almost perished, and it Is becoming a practical question whether we who received a pure Sabbath from the hands of onr fath ers shall have piety and pluck enough to give to our children the same blessed Inheritance. The eternal God helping ns, we will! I protest against this invasion of the holy Sabbath, in the first place, because it is a war on divine enactment. Ood says, in Isaiah: "If thou turn away thy foot from doing thy pleasure on My holy day thon ahalt walk upon the high places." What did lie mean by "doing thy pleasure?" He referred to secular and worldly amusements. A man told me he was never so much frightened as in the midst of an earthquake, when the beasts of the field bellowed in fear, and even the barn-yard fowls screamed in terror. Well, it was when the earth was shaking and the aky was all foil of fire that Ood mode the great announce ment: "Remember the Sabbath day to keep It holy." .. . . Go through the atretwnMr the the aters are open on a Habboth night; go np on the steps enter the boxes of those places of entertainment, and tell me if that is keeping- the Sabbath holy. "O," says someone, "tiod won't be dis pleased with a grand sacred concert." A gentleman who was present at a "grand sacred concert" on. Sabbath night in one of the theaters of onr great cities, said that daring the exercise there were comic and sentimental songs, interspersed with coarse Jokes; and there were dances, and afarue, and tight rope walking, and a trapeze per formance. I suppose it was a holy dance and a consecrated tight rope. This Is what they call a grand sacred concert." We hear a great deal of talk about "the rights of the people" to have just such amnsements on Sunday as they want to have. I wonder if the Lord has any rtghU. Ton rule yowr family, the governor rules the state, the prast den rules the whole land. I wonder if the Lord has a right to rule the nations and make the enactment, "Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy," and if there Is any appeal to higher eoort from that deeisioa, and if the maa ; who are warring against enactment are sot guilt of high treason against the Maker of heaven and earth. They have in our cities put Ood on trial. It has been the theaters and opera houses, plaintiffs, versus the Lord Almighty, defendant; the suit has been begun, and who shall come ont ahead, you know. Whether popular or unpopular, I now announce it as my opinion that the people have no rights save those which the great Jehovah gives them. He has sever given the right to man to break His holy Sabbath, and as long as Ills throne stands He never will give that right. The proph ets ask a question which I can easily answer: "Will a man rob God?" Yes. They robbed Him last Sunday night at the theaters and opera houses, and I charge upon them the infamous and high-handed larceny. I hold the same opinion of a sailor I have heard of. The crew had been discharged because they would not work whllo they were in port on the Lord's day. The cap tain went out to get sailors. He found one man and said to him: "Will you serve mo on the Sabbath?" "No." "Why not?" "Well," replied the old sailor, "a man who will rob Ood Al mighty of Ills Sabbath would rob me of my wnges if he goto chance." Suppose you were poer, and you came to a dry goods merchant and asked for some cloth for garments, nnd he should siiy, "I'll give you six yr.rds,"nnd while ho was off from the counter b'rd'.ng up the six ynrds you should go b.'li'.nd the counter nnd steiil one a l lition::! yard. Tlirt Is whnt every man does when ho hrc.'i V s the Lord's S:Mi.-ith. (lod gives us i.Ik dnys out of seven, reserving one for '.iiiiv.c'K. and if you will not let Him hnvc it, it is mean Ivyond all computa tion. Ajjnin: I am opposed to this desecra tion of the Sabbath by secular enter tainments because it is a war on the statutes of most of tho States. The law in New York state says: "It sV.il nut bu lawful to exhibit, on the f.r a day of the week, commonly called Snndny, to the public, in any biiiMin. fe-.irden, gronnds, concert room, or i thcr room or place within the city nn I county of New York, any Interlude, tragedy, comedy, opera, ballet, play, farce, negro minstrelsy, nej.T or other dancing, or any other entertainment of the stage; or any part rr parts therein, or any equestrian, circus, or dramatic performance of jugglers, ncrobats, or rope-dancing." Whas there ever a plainer enactment than that? Who made law? You, who at the ballot boxes decided who should go to Albany and sit in the legislature. Yon, who in any region exercise the right of suffrage. They made the law for yon and for your families, and now I soy that any man who attempts to override that law Insults yon and me and every man who has the right of suffrage. Still further: I protest against the Invasion of the Sabbath, because It Is a foreign war. Now, if you heard at this moment the booming of a gun In the harbor, or if a shell from some foreign frigate should drop into your street, would you keep yonr seats in church? You would want to face the foe, and every gun that could be managed would be brought into use, and every ship that could be brought out of the navy yard would swing from her anchorage, and the question would be decided. You do not want a foreign war, and yet I have to tell yoa that this invasion of (rod's holy day is a foreign war. As among our own native-born popu lation there are two classes the good and the bad; so it is with the people who come from other shores there are the law-abiding and the lawless. The former are welcome here. The more of them the better we like it. Rut let not the lawless come from other shores expecting to break down our Sabbath, and institute in place of it a foreign Sabbath. How do you feel, ye who have been brought np amid the hills of New En gland, about giving np the American Sabliath? Ye who spent yonr childhood under the shadow of the Adirondack or the Catf-killv, ye who were born on the banks of the Savannah, or Ohio, or Oregon, how do you feel about giving up the American Sabbath? Yon say: "We shall not give it up. We mean to defend it as long as there is left any strength In our arm, or blood in our heart! Do not bring yonr Spanish Sab liath here. Do not bring your Italian Sabbath here. Do not bring your French Sabbath here. Do not bring your foreign Sabbath here. It shall be for ns and onr children forever a pure, consecrated, Christian, American Sab bath." I will make a comparison between the American Sabbath, as some of yon have known it, and the Parisian Sab bath. I speak from observation. On a Sabbath morning I was aronsed in Paris by a great sound hi the street. I said; "What is thUr "O," they said, "this ia Sunday." An unnsual ratUe of ve hicles of sll sorts. The voice seemed more boisterous than on - other days. People running to and fro, with basket or bandies, to get to the rail trains or gardens. . It seemed a If all the vehi cles in Paris, of whatever sort, had turned out for the holiday. The "Champs Elysees" one great mob of pleasure seeking people. Iialloons fly ing. Parrots chattering. Footballs rolling. Peddler, hawking their knick knacks through the streets. Punch and Jndy show in a score of places, esch one with a shouting andieaee. Hand organs, cymbal and every kiad of racket, musical and unmusical. When the evening earne down all the the theater were ia f nU blaze of mnsle and foil blase of light. The win store and saloons were thronged with an unusual number of customers. , At wentide I stood and watched the ex cursion lata coming home, fagged oat men, women and children, a gulf stream y fatigue. Irritability and wretched ness, for I should think it would take three or four days to get over that mis erable way of Sondaylng. It seemed mors lika an American Fourth of July than a Christian Habbatav How, in contrast, I present one of Us Sabbaths in one of our best America ctttssv Holy alienee soming down wiU 'lie ay-dawn. Business men more de lilieratoly looking into the faces of their children, and talking to them about their present and future welfare. Men sit longer at the table in the morn ing, because the stores are not to be opened, and the mechanical tools are not to bo taken up. A hymn is sung. There are congratulation and good cheer all through the house. The street silent until 10 o'clock, when there is a regular, orderly tramp churchward. Houses of Ood, vocal with thanksgiv ings for mercies received, with prayers for comfort, with charities for poor. Rest for the body. Rest for the soul. The nerves quieted, tho temples cooled, the mind cleared, the soul strengthened, and our entire .population turned out on Monday morning ten years younger, better prepared for the duties of this life, better prepared for the life that is to come. Which do yon like the beat, the American Snbbath or tho Parisian Sab bath? i)., yuu know In what boot the Sabbath came across tho seas and landed on our shores? It was in the Mayflower. Do you know in what boat the Sabbath will leave us. If It ever goes? It win be In the ark that floats over a deluge of national de struction. Still further; I protest against the Invasion of the Lord's day, because it wrongs a vast multitude of employes of their rest. The play actors and actresses have their rest between their engagements; but how about the scene shifters, the ballet dancers, the call boys, the innumerable attendants and supernntnariea of the American thea ter? Whero is their Sunday to come from? They are paid small salaries at the best Alas for theml They appear on the stage in tinsel and tassel with halberds, or In gauze whirling in toe tortures, and they might be mistaken for fairies or queens; but after 13 o'clock at night you may see them trudging through the streets in faded dresses, shivering and tired, a bundle under their arms, seeking their homes in the garrets and cellars of the city. Now, yon propose to take from thou sands of these employes throughout this country; not only all opportunity of moral culture, but all opportunity of physical rest For heaven's sake let the crushing Juggernaut stop at least one day in seven. Again: I oppose this modern inva sion of the Christian Sabbath because it is a war on the spiritual welfare of the people. Yon have a body? Yes. Yon have a mind? Yes, Yon have a soul? Yes. Which of the secular halls on the Sabbath day will give that soul any culture? Now, admitting that a man has a spiritual and immortal na ture, which one of the places of amuse ment will culture it? Which one of the Sabbath performances will remind men of the fact that unless they are bom again they cannot see the kingdom of God? Will the musie of the "Grand Dnchesse" help people at last to sing the song of the one hundred and forty and four thousand? Ik-sides, if yon gentlemen of the secular entertainment havuftt days in the week In which to exercise your alleged beneficial influ ence, ought you not to allow Christian Institutions to have twenty-four hours? Is it unreasonable to demand that if yon have six days for the body and in tellect, we should have one day at least for our immortal soul? Or, to put it In another shape, do yon not really think that our imperishable soul Is worth at least one-seventh as much as onr per ishable body? An artist has three gems a corne lian, an amethyst and a diamond. He has to cut them and to set them. Which one is he most particular about? Now the cornelian Ik the body, the anethyst is the intellect, the diamond Is the soul. For the two former yoa propose six -days of opportunity, while you offer no opportunity at all for the last, which 1s in value as compared with the others like one hundred thousand million dol lars to oae farthing. Resides, you must not forget ttvit nine-tenths, aye, ninety nine oue-hundredth's of all the Chris tian efforts of this country are put forth on the Lord day. Sunday is the da7 on which the asylums a::d hospi tals and the prisons are visited by Christina men. Thalisthe day when the youth of our country g-t their chief religion information In San lay schools. That Is the. day when the jnost of the charities ere collected. That is the day when, nadcr the blast of sixty thousand American pulpits, the ain of the laad ia assaulted and men are summoned te repent When you make war upon airy pert of Ood day. yon make war on the asylums, and the ponib'n'.iariea, and the hospitals, and the reform associations, and the homes of the destitute, and the church of the living God, which is the pillar nnd the ground of the truth. I am opposed to the invasion of the Sabbath, because it is a war on our po litical instittition. When the Sabbath gne down, the republic goes down, lien who are not willing to obey God's law in regard to Sabbath observance are not fit t govern themselves. Sab bath break i s g means dissoluteness, and dissoluteness is incompatible with self government They wanted a republic in France. After awhile they got a re public; but one day Napoleon III., with his cavalry, rode throagli the streets, and down went the republic nnder the clattering hoof. . They have a republic there again; bat France never will have a permanent republic BntQ she quit her royatering Sabbaths, and devotes one day in every week to tb recogni tion of Ood and sacred Institutions. Abolish the Sabbath and you abolish your religious privileges. Let the bad work go on, and you hare "the com mune" and you have "the revolution," and yon hav the can of national pros perity going down in darkness and blood. From that reign of terror may the God of peace deliver a. SUU further. I am opposed to this invasion of the Sabbath because it is unfair and it Is partial. While secular amusement in different eitie ar al lowed to be open on the Sabbath day, dry good establishments mast be etoaed, and plumbing establish ants, and the tmteher'a, nnd the baker", and Um shoemaker's, nnd the hard wars stores. Now, tell me by what law of Justice you compel a man to shut th door of his store while you keep open the door of your worldly establishment May it please your honors, Judges of the supreme court, If yon give to secu lar places the right to open on the Sab bath day, you have to give, at the same time, the right to all commercial establishments to be open, and to all mechanical establishment to be open. If lt Is right in the one case it is right in all the cases. Rnt we are told that they must get money on Sabbath nights in order to pay the deficits of the other nights of the week. Now, in answer to that, I say that if men cannot manage their amusements without breaking the Lord's day they had better all go Into bankruptcy together. We will never surrender qur Christian Sabbath for the purpose of helping these violators to pay their expenses. Above all, my confidence is in the good hand of God that has been over our cities since their foundation. Rut I call this day upon all those who befriend Christian prin ciple, and those who love our political freedom, who stand In solid phalanx In this Thermopyhe of our American his tory; for I believe as certainly as I stand here that the triumph or over throw of American Institutions depends upon this Sabbatic contest Ilring your voices, your pens, your printing presses and your pulpits into the Lord's artillery corps for the de fense of our holy day. To-day in your families and in your Sabbath-schools recite: "Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy." Decree before high heaven that this war on yonr religious rights and cradles of your children shall bring Ignominious defeat to the enemies of God and the public weal. For those who die In the contest bat tling for the right we shall chisel the epitaph: "These are they who came out of great tribulation, and had their robes washed and made white in the blood of the lamb." Rut for that one who shall prove In this moral crisis recreant to God and the church there shall be no honorable epitaph. He shall not be worthy of a burial place in all this free land; but the appropriate In terment for such a one would be to carry out his remains and drop them Into the sea, where the lawless winds which keep no Sabboth may gallop over the grave of him who lived and died a traitor to God, the church and the free institutions of America. Long live the Christian Sabbath. Perish forever all attempts to overthrow it HISTORY IN TREES. They Are Said to Retain a Record of Weather Conditions. It has been found that the rings of growth visibte in the trunks of trees have a far more interesting story to tell than has usually been supposed. Everybody knows that they indicate the number of years that the tree has lived; but Mr. J. Keuchler, of Texas, has recently mode experiments and ob servations which seem to show that trees carry In their trunks a record of the weather conditions that have pre vailed during the successive jears of their growth. Several trees, each more than one hundred and thirty years old, were felled, and the order and relative width if the rings of growth in their trunks were found to agree exactly. This fact ahowed that all the trees boil experienced the same stimulation in certain years and the same retarda tion in other years. Assuming that the most rapid growth had occurred in wet years, and the least rapid in dry rears, it waa concluded that out of the na hundred and thirty-four years cov ered by the life of the trees, sixty had iieen very wet, six extremely wet, Mghteen wet, seventeen average as to he supply of moisture, nineteen dry, tight very dry and six extremely dry. Hut when the records of rainfall run ning back as fsr as 1S40 were consulted, t was found that they did not all agree with the record of the trees. Still it sould not be denied that the rings in the trunks told a true story of the weather influences which had affected the trees In successive years. The conclusion was then-fore reached thst the record of the rings contained n ire than a mere index of the annual -uiufall: that it showed what the char acter of the seasons had been as to sun binc, temperature, evaporation, regu larity or irregularity of the supply of moisture, and the like; in short, that the trees contained, indelibly imprinted is their trunks, more than one hun- Ired year of nature's history, a his tory which we might completely dc slpher if we could but look upon the face of nature from a tree's point of view.

A rtshto Tug, Loaded With Excursionists, Go Down In s Heavy Sea Off the Highlands Rear New York City At lieaat Twenty-Flv Per sons Lose Their Lives. Kbw Yoik, June 25. The tug James D. Nlehols, owned by William Reeves, of this city, foundered off tho Atlantic highlands shortly before 1 o'clock Sun day afternoon. The Nichols had on board a party of excursionists number ing sixty-eight persons and also carried a crew of five men. As near as can bo learned at this writing forty-eight per sons were rescued by the steamer Al gonquin, of the Clyde linp. nd the tugn Governor, Wollnce R. Flint and B. J. Morgan. This leaves twenty-flv per sons unaccounted for and these have, probably been drowned. All the victims were residents of this city and Ifrooklyn. The tug Nichols was chartered by on association known as the Herring Fish ing club, whose headquarters are in thlsdlty. The tug, with tho party on board, left the foot of Fifth street, East river, at 7:30 o'clock yesterday' morning. The Nichols nnssed on down through tho Narrows and then moved over to the fishing batiks. She arrived there about 9:0. Here the excursion ists fished until about noon, when the start for the homeward Journey was made.' The steamer Algonquin, of the Clyde line, passed the tug, and the latter fol lowed in the wake of the big steamer. At that time there appeared to be noth ing amiss on the Nichols. Hut in a half hour the situation was completely changed. The big wavci became more boisterous and dashed up against tho sides of the tug, throwing spray over the excursionists who were on the deck. When the accident occurred, the Al- Sonquln, which was headed north for 'ew York on her Journey from Jack sonville and Charleston, hud reached n point about four miles southeast of the) Scotland lightship, when the scream of a whistle given in such a way as to de note distress came over the sea. It reached the ears of Capt. Samuel Piatt who was standing on the bridge. The captain observed the big tug roll ing and pitching on the waves. With the aid of his glasses he saw the craft was crowded with people and that she was on the point of fonndering. He signalled the engine room. Refore the screws of the ship had ceased their revolutions an order had been Issued to lower and man the lifeboat. The com mand was quickly executed. When tho work of hnvering the bont was accomplished the people on the Algonquin looked over to where they had seen the tug. As they did so tho little vessel careened away over to thu starboard and her smokestack almost touched the crest of a wave. Just at this time another blgwhitecap came rolling along, and striking the tug sent her over the other way. Thus the waters played with her for a minute or more and then she went to the bottom. As she sank out of sight the top of tlu wheelhouse, together with a raft and a lifeboat remained floating on the water. To every particle of the wreckage clung one or more of the drowning throng. When the Algonquin's boat reached the scene of the accident and com menced the work of rescue she was Joined in her labor by three tugs. To gether they commenced to take the people from the water and from the raft Every one was cool and collected and In less than twenty minutes from the time the rescuers arrived those who remained afloat had reached havens of safety.
