Miscellaneous. REV. T. De WITT TALMAGE. STRUGGLES WHICH ALWAYS PRECEDE VICTORY. No Shining Ladders Now to Let the Angels No Shining Ladders Now to Let the Angels Down-But a Fierce Combat That Lasts to Edge of the Grave. SUBJECT—"STUGGLE AND VICTORY." Text Gen. 22:20: "Let Me Go; for the Day Breaketb." The dust arose from a traveling herd of cattle, and sheep, and goats, and cam ela. They are the presents Jacob sends to gain the good will of his offended brother. That night Jacob halts by the brook Jabbok. Bat there is no rest for the weary man no shining ladder to let the angels down into his dream, but fierce combat, that last until the morn ing, with an ur known visitor. The un known visitor, to reveal his superior TK)wer, by a touch wrenches Jacob's thighbone from its socket, perhaps crip pling him for life. As on the morning Bky the clusters of purple clouds begin to brighten, Jacob sees it is an angel he baa been contending with, and not one of bis brother's coadjutors. "Let me go, the day breaketh," says the angel. Yon see, in the first place, God allows His people sometimes to get into a terri ble trouble. Jacob was a good man, but bere he is left alone in the midnight to wrestle with a tremendous influence by the brook Jabbok. For Joseph, a pit; for Daniel, a wild beast den; for David, a dethronement and exile; for St. Paul, a shipwreck; for Peter, a prison; for John, desolate Patmos; for John Wesley, a sto ning; for Josephine, banishment; for Mrs Sigourney, the agony of a drunkard's wife; for Latimer, the stake; for Christ, the cross. Some one said to a Christian reformer, "The world is against you;" be replied,"And I am against the world.' I will go further, and say tvery Christ ian has his Btruggle. This man bad his combat in Wall street; this one on Broad street; this one on Fulton street; this one on State street. With financial mis fortune you . have had the midnight wrestle. Redhot disasters have dropped into your store from loft to cellar. What you bought you could not sell. Whom you trusted, fled. The help you expect ed, would not come. Some giant panic, with long arms and death-like grip, took hold of yon in an awful wrestle, from which you have not yet escaped; and the result is uncertain. Here is another soul in Btruggle with some bad appetite. He Bald, "For the sake of my soul, my fam ily, and my God, I must stop this." And behold, he found himself alone by the brook of Jabbok, and it was midnight. That evil appetite seized upon him, and be upon it, and oh, the horror of the conflict! When once a bad habit bath ronsed itself up to destroy a man, and the man sworn that by the help of God be will destroy it, all heaven draws itself out in long line of light to look from above, and all hell stretches itself in myrmidons of spite to look up from be neatb, I have seen men rally them' selves for such a struggle, and they have bitten their lip and clenched their fist, and cried with a bloodred earnestness and a rain of scalding tears, "God help me!" From a wrestle with habit I have seen men fall back defeated, calling for no help, but relyiDg on their own resolution they have come into the struggle, and for a time it seemed as if they would succeed. But that habit rallied again its infernal power, and lifted the soul from its standing, and with a force borrowed from the pit, hurled it into outer dark ness First, I saw the auctioneer's mal let fall on the pictures and musical in struments, and the rich upholstery of his family parlor. After a while I saw him fall into the ditch. Then, in the midnight, when the children were all dreaming, and Christian households wttre silent in slumber, angel watched, I beard him give the sharp shriek that followed the stab of his own poinard. He fell from an honored Bocial position; he fell from a family circle of which he was the chief attraction; he fell from the House of God, at whose altars he had been consecrated he fell, foreverl But, thank God, I have often seen a better termination than that. I have seen men prepare for Buch a wrestling. They laid bold of God's help as they went into the combat. The giant, Habit, regaled by the cup of many dissipations, came out stTong and defiant. They clenched. There were the writhings and distortions of a fearful struggle; but the old giant began to waver, and at last, in the mid night, alone, with none but God to wit ness, by the brook Jabbok, the giant fell and the triumphant wrestler broke the darkness with the cry, "Thanks be unto God, who giveth ns the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." There is a widow's heart, first was des olated by bereavement, and since by the anxieties and trials that came from the support of a family. It is a sad thing to see a man contending for a livelihood under disadvantages; but to see a delicate woman, with helpless ones at her back, fighting the giants of poverty and sor row, is more affecting. It was an hum ble home, and passersby knew not that within those four walls were displays of courage more admirable than that of Hannibal crossing the Alps, or in the pass of Thermopylse, or at Balaklava, where "into the jaws ot death rode the six hundred." These heroes had the whole world to cheer them on; but there were none to applaud the Btruggle going on in that bumble home, She fought for bread, for clothing, for shelter, for fire, with aching head and weak side and exhausted strength, through the long night, by the brook Jabbok. Could it be that none would give her help? Had God forgotten to be gracious? No, con tending soul; the midnight air is full of wings coming to the rescue: she bears it now; in the moan of the night wind, in the ripple of the brook Jabbok the promise made so long ago, ringing from the aky, "Thy fatherless children, I will preserve them alive; and lei; thy widows trust in me." Some one said to a very poor woman, "How Is it that in such dis tress yon keep bo cheerful?" She said: "I do it by what I call 'cross-prayers;" when I had my rents to pay, and noth ing to pay with; and bread to buy, and nothing to bur with, I would Bit and cry but now I do not get discouraged. If to to to I of co a is It I an alnntr the street, when I come to a corner I say, "the Lord help me." I go on till I come to another street crossing, and again I say, "the Lord help me." So I keen on at every crossing, and since I have got into the habit of thus praying I have been able to keep np my courage and be cheerful." Learn again from this subject, that people sometimes are surprised to find out that what they have been struggling with in the darkness is really an ange of blessing. Jacob 'fouad in the morn ine this stranne personage was not an enemy, but a God-dispatched messenger to promise prosperity for him and his children. So, many a man at ine ciose of his trial, has found out be has been trying to throw down his own blessing. If you are a Christian man I will go back in your history, and find the grand est things ever happened you have been your trials. Nothing short of scourging imprisonment and shipwreck could have made Paul what he was. When David was fleeing through the wilderness, pursued by his own son, he was preparing to become tne sweet sin ger of Israel. The pit and the dungeon were the best schools from which Joseph ever eradnated. The hurricane that unset the tent and killed Job's children prepared the mau of TJi to write the magnificent poem that has astounded the ages. There is no way to get the wnet out or tne straw Due to tureen it. There is no way to purify gold but to burn it. Look at people wbo nave at' ways had their own way, they are proud, disconted. useless and unhappy. If you want to find cheerful people, go among those who have been punned as by ere After Rossini had rendered "William Tell" the five hundredth time, a party of musicians came under his window in Paris and serenaded him. They put upon his brow a crown of laurel leaves. But arnia all the applause and enthusisasm, Roseini turned to a friend and said, "I would give all this demonstration for a few days of youth and love." Contrast the melancholy feeling of Rossini, who had everything this world could give him, to the joyful experience of Isaac Watts, whose misrortunes were innu' mi ruble. It is prosperity that kills, and trouble that saves. When the Israelites were on the march, amidst great privations aud hardships, tbey behaved well. Af ter awhile they prayed for meat, and the sky darkened with a large flock of quails which fell in great multitudes all about mem; and the Israelites ate and stuited themselves until they died. Oh, my friends, it is not hardship, or toil, or star vation that Injures the soul, but abund ant supply. It is not the vulture of trou ble that eats up the Christian's life, it is the quailBl You will yet find out that your midnight wrestle by the brook Jabbok is with an angel of God, come down to bless and to save. Learn again, that while our wrestling with trouble may be triumphant, we can expect it will leave its mark upon us. Ja cob prevailed, but the angel toucued him, and his thighbone sprang from its socket, and the good man went limping on bis way. We must carry through this world tne mark or the combat What plowed those premature wrinkles in your face? What whitened your hair before it was time ror frost f What si lenced ferever so much of the hilarity of your household? On, it is because the angel of trouble hath touched you, that you go limping on your way. ion need not be surprised that those who nave passed through the fire do not feel as gay as tbey once did. vo not be out or pa Hence with those who come out of their despondency. They may triumph over their Iobs, and yet their gait shall tell you they have been trouble touched. Are we stoics that we can, unmoved, see our cradles rifled of the bright eyes and the sweet lips tan we stand unmoved and see our gardens or earthly delight 'up rooted? Will Jesus, who wept himself, be angry with us u we pour our tears into the graves that open to swallow our loved ones? Was Lazarus more dear to Him than our loved dead to uo? No; we have a right to weep. Our tears must come. Tbey fall into God s bottle. Af flicted ones have died because they co'd not weep. Thank God for the sweet, the mysterious relief that comes to us thro'h tears! Under tuis gentle rain, the flow ers of comfort put forth their bloom. God pity that dry, withered, parched. all consuming grief that wrings its hands grinds its teeth and bites its nails into the quick, but cannot weepl We may have found the comfort of the Cross, and yet ever after show that in the darkness, and by the brook Jabbok, we were trou ble touched. Again, we may take the idea of the text and announce the approach of the daydawn. No one was ever more gla to see the morning than was Jacob after tbat night of struggle. It is appro priate for Christians and philanthropists to cry out with this angel of the text: "The day breaketb." The worldly pror are brightening. The tyrants of the earth are falling flat in the dust. The church ef Christ is rising up in its power go forth, "fair as the worn, clear as the sun, and terrible as an armv with banners." Clap your hands, all ye peo ple, the day breaketb. The bigotries of the earth are perishing. The time was when we were told if we wanted to get heaven we must be immersed or sprin kled; we muBt believe in th? persever ance of the saints; or in falling awav irom grace; we must be an Armenian or Calvin ist to get to heaven. We have all come confess now that I here are non-essen tials in religioD. During my vacation one summer 1 was in a Presbyterian audience; it was sacramental day, and with grateful heart received the holy communion. The next 8abbath I was in a Methodist audi ence, and eat at a love-feast. The follow ing Sabb ith I was in an Episcopal audi ence, and knelt at the altar and received the consecrated bread. I don't know which service I enjoyed the moat. "I believe in the communion of saints and life everlasting." "The day breaketh." As I look upon this audience I see many who have passed through waves trouble, that came up higher than the girdle. In God's name I proclaim cessa tion of hostilities. You shall not always saddened ' and heart-broken. God will lift your burden. He will brine your dead to life; He will stanch your the heart's bleeding: l know lie will. As father pitieth his children, so the Lord pities you. The pains of earth will end: the tomb will burst; the dead will rise; the morning star trembles on a bright ening ekv: the sates of the East becin to swing open. The day breaketh. . Luther and Melancthon are talking together gloomily about the prospects of the church. They could see no hope of de liverance. After awhile Luther got no and said to Melancthon: "Come, Philip, ns sins the 40lh psalm or David: Uod our refuge and strength a very pres ent help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear; though the earth be removed, and the mountains be carried into the midBt of the sea; and the waters thereof roar and be troubled, we will not tear. Death to many nay to all is a Strug- pie and a wrestle. We have many loved friends it will be hard to leave. I care not bow bright our future hope is, it ia a outer thing to look upon this fair world and know we will never again see its blossoming spring, its falling fruit, its sparkling streams, and say farewell to those with whom we played in child hood or counseled in manhood. In that night, like Jacob, we may have to wres tle; but God will not leave rs unblessed. shall not be told in heaven that a dy- ing soul cried unto God for help, but was delivered.

Strange Belief Concerning Him Among the Superstitious Hindus. Many of the Hindus still think, strange as it may seem to us, tbat the leader of the Sepoy rebellion, Nana Sahib, is still alive and that he is in America a region as vague to them as the dominions of Preetor John were to the medievalists Although his death was announced twenty years ago, the truth or falsity of it was not then, nor has it since been as certained. But public opinion long since settled upon the belief that he has since ceased to exist. He might be alive as far as age goes, for he would not now be more than sixty years old. In many res i ects he was a remarkable man. Very little is known of his antecedents. He Is said to have been the son of a Brahmin from the Deccan and his real name is Dhnndu. He was adopted while a child by Bajee Roa, Expeishwa of Poona, ac quiring by adoption, according to Hindu law, most of the rights of a legitimate son. He was educated as a native noble' man. lie learned English and had as sociations with the British army and civil officers. Tje government of Cal cutta having decided that it could not recognize the right of adopted persons to pensions or indemnities, the continuance of Nana's pension of eight lacs of rupees, previously paid to Bajee Rao, was then withheld. This, in connection with varieus slights from young Englishmen, is supposed to have angered him greatly. He was still permitted to retain some of tbe state belonging to h:s rank, keeping a retinue of 200 soldiers, with three field pieceB, and a forfeited residence near Cawnpore. When tbe mutiny of 1857 had broken out there, be ottered to aid the English in its suppression, but sud denly put himself at the head of the rebels, as they were called. The British troot b were induced to surrender to Nana on bis promise, as it is alleged, that they should be safely sent down the Ganges. iney baa out rainy got on board or two transports when two guns were unmask ed and a hot fire opened upon them. The Sepoys were ordered to shoot the men but to spare the women and children, who after their husbands and fathers had been killed were removed to a bouse at Cawnpore. After Sir Henry Havelock had marched to their assistance from Allahabad, and defeated the enemy in two engagements, Nana, driven to des peration, ordere 1 that all women and children should be slain, and the bar barous order was most faithfully execut ed. A long struggle ensued, in which the Hindu Chief was generally worsted, though he exhibited extraordinary reso lution, intrepidity and command of re sources. He was finally driven beyond the British frontier into Nepaul, and al ter that all definite trace of him was lost. The Hindus, many of them at least, have faith that he will yet return and enab'e them to throw off the yoke under which they have so long but secretly groaned. His name is still a name of terror in Hin dustan, and the story is told of him, which has been so often told of other leader, tb.pt the English women hush their crying babies to slunober by whis pering "Nana Sahib."

[From ex-Senator Christiancy's Reply to his] Wife's Crossbill.] In answer to the second point in her said bill, I admit the marriage between myself and the said complainant, as stat ed in her said bill, but I solemnly assert that said marriage took place at her own instance, and that I was led into it by her skillfully turning into what was in tended as a mere compliment to her into a proposition for marriage, which at the first moment I suspected she intended co misconstrue into such proposition, I promptly apologized for, when she promptly declared her wish that I should marry her, to which I did not assent un til after I had honestly and earnestly on several different occasions, endeavored to convince her of the unfitness of such marriage, on account of the differences of our respective ages; but I finally yield ed to her solicitations, upon her repeat ed assurances that she loved me better than any other man, which assurances she volunteered to declare to me were false the first moment we were alone to gether in our room at Philadelphia the first night after the weddinor. and hnfora she bad taken off her hat, avowing her love ror another man, to whom she said she had been engaged, and dec aring tbat she bad on the morning of tbe wed ding, fainted at the mention of his name and that she had perjured herself in her marriage vow, and demanding an imme diate divorce; and upon my telling her there was no ground for divorce, and that none could be bad, she screamed like a maniac. i The total of eleven and a half million gallons representing tbe California vin tage,; is made np by 1.700,000 gallons in Sonoma ceunty, 2,250,000 in Napa coun ty, 2,000,000 in the river tier of counties, 2 000,000 in Alameda, Contra Costa, 8an Meteo, Santa Clara, and San Francisco counties, and 3,500,000 in tbe counties south or eanta Clara along the coast.

A correspondent of the New York Evening Post says Baltimore has what no otber city in the world, save Genoa, possesses a monument to Christopher Colu nbue; and although the monument was built almost a century ago, very few Baltimoreans know of its existence. It is on tbe property known as "Belmont," the old country residence of the elder Barnum, of hotel fame, and within a stone's throw of tbe fortifications built by General Butler for the defense of Balti more in 1861. I walked out to see it a few days ago, and listened to tbe legends concerning it, for there seems to be noth ing accurate as yet known about it.'except that the property from 1789 until 1796 was owned and occupied by the first French Counsul to this country Charles Francis Adrian de Paulmier, Chevalier d 'am our. The monument, which is a substantial and well-proportioned Bhaft fifty feet in height, is built of brick, covered with a rough coat f plaster, and is in an excellent state of preeervat.on, except where the cement has been chippei off by visitors. On one side of the base is a marble tablet with this inscription : SACRED to the MEMORY of CHRIS COLTJMBTJ8, Octob XII MDCCVIIIC. Which means 1792, three hundred years after Columbus sighted America. On two other sides of tbe base are places left for tablets, which have never been in serted. Tha legend is that the French CocbuI built this monument at an ex pense of 800, the bricks for it haying been imported. It has long been cur rent among tbe poor people of tbe neighborhood that the monument was erected to the memory of a favorite horse, but it is not very likely that a man would be quite so eccentric as to expend $4,000 for such a purpose. HOW OUR FORESTS ARE USED UP. Our forests are rapidly going, while no adequate provision is being made to re store them. The state of New York has a great park full of timber in the north ern wilderness, but annual fires are ma king havoc in thai; region. The great forests are probably losing more than they gain from annual growth. Wood is becoming more scarce and inaccessi ble every year. In many states the for ests on level ground have mostly disap peared, and only remains on high hills or mountains, which are not easily ac cessible. Th Monetary Times tells how the forests disappear: To make shoe pegs enough for Ameri can use consumes annually 100 000 cords of timber, and to make our ludfrr mat ches, 800.000 cubic feet of tbe best pine are required every year. Lasts and boot trees take 500 000 cords of birch, beech, and maple, and the handles of tools 500 000 more. The baking of our brkkB con sume 2,000 000 cords of wood, or what would cover with forest abou: 50 .000 acres of laud. Telegraph poles already up represent 80,000 and their annual repair consumes about 300,000 more. The ties o' our railroad consume annually 30 years' growth of 75 000 acres, and to fence our railroads would cost $45,000 000. with a yearly expenditure of $15,000,000 for repairs, In tbe northwest there has been a very rapid destruction of the forests and very much solicitude is felt for the future sup ply of timber. Straw lumber has been manufactured a little in Kansas, and is said to answer tbe purpose very well. The refuse straw from the great grain producing states oi tbe west will be util ized. Instead of raising trees, the land can be devoted grain. Coal for fuel and straw for inside may relieve tbe demand ror wood, and give the forests a chance to grow. THE PROFITS OF MINING. Some time ago an Ohio banker invest ed $1,800 in a prospect hole at Leadville. To-day, $50,000 would not buy his inter est. Two months ago, a Denver mer chant would gladly have taken $25,000 in cash for a mine, which he has since been developing; now, $150,000 is his figure. The whole stock of a consolidat ed property, 30 days ago was hardly worth $350,000, now it is stiff at $2,000 000. Gov. H. A. W. Taylor made $1 500,- 000 out of his diffeient mines in 90 days. Dick and Pat Dillon, two of the poorest prospectors in Leadville in its earliest days, made $150,000 from the Little Chief Tbe Rubt. E. Lee Mine, at Lead ville, recently put out 95 tons of ore in 17 hours, tbe ore yielding $1,250 per ton, or an aggregate of $118,500 for the r ay's work. The Rjbt. E. Lee has yield ed $300,000 in the past three montt.B. The Colorado Prince Mine, at Leadville, has an immense body of gold ore, which turns out as high as $20,000 per ton. Last year, Colorado produced, over $14, 100,000 of silver, Leadville bringing forth $11,000,000 of it. Besides this, Col orado mines yielded $5,00 000 in gold dur ing the year 1879 ; her increase in prec ious metals over 1878 being $9,110,000. To-day she is producing at the enormous rate of $2 000 000 per month. A story comes from Yokohama by way of San Francisco, relating the adventures of a young woman connected with the family of one of the commissioners Bant out by the American Government to se cure modifications in the treaty with China. The young woman al.uded to visited the jewelry shop of Mishaahlva in Yokoham, and though she purchased nothing she carried oft one of three very oddly shaped and peculiarly finished locket". This locket she Rave to aa JSn lish officer who had been a passenger in tbe same ship which took the American Commissioner to Yokohama. The jew eler saw the locket on the guard of the English officer, and it was aoon made known that the young American woman bad given it to him. Tbe jeweler had the young woman taken before the American Consul, who investigated the case and tried to pacify the jeweler by telling him that the taking of the locket was a case of kleptomania. The Japan ese consulted a dictionary, but his limit ed knowledge of English did not enable him to distinguish between kleptomania and stealing, so be plced in his show window a card bearing on it in large let ters this legend: "By American Law Kleptomania ia no Crime."
