IIsnrt Ward Bsiohib on Faolt-Findino.
In a recent dlioourse on the text, "Bear ye one
another's burdens," Henry Ward Beecher said:
The spirit of this passage forbids that we
should make the failings of other men a souroe
of amusement to ourselves and now I am
coming to It. I will admit that there it a
playful good-humored kind of eadt'naae that
is harmless. The reprehension or exposition
of a man's faults in a light, genial spirit, is
often the best way of telling him of them. I
do not, therefore, say that all innocent raillery
and good-natured reprehension is to be dital
lowed. On the contrary, it may be allowed.
It must be genuine, however, produoing good
and not pain. But he that makes the mistakes,
the foibles, the faults, the misconception! of
men the ten thousand infelioities of human
life the subject matter of comment, of jest
and tooial enjoyment, and of personal amuse
ment, is simply a barbarian. He is not a
Christian; he does not belong to that category.
It is one of those things that are monstrous
in the sight of Sod. Could you do it to your
ohild? A mother may tantalize her child; she
may frolio with it; she may do a thousand
things with it, causing it to hover vibrating
between a tear and a smile, sometimes on one
side and sometimes on the other, just for a
moment; but she instantly presses it to her
bosom, and covers its faoe with kisses, so that
thore are no shades lift upon its spirits. And
there is such a thing as innocent raillery. But
to watch to see what is awkward in others; to
search out the infirmities of men; to go out
like a street-sweeper or a univenal scavenger,
to colleot the faults and failings of people, to
carry these things about as if they were cher
ries or flowers; to throw them out of your bag
or pouch, and make them an evening repast
or a noonday meal, or the amusement of a
social hour, enlivened by unfeeling criticisms,
heartless jests and cutting sarcasms; to take
a man up as you would a ohioken, and gnaw
his flesh from his very bones, and then lay him
down, Baying, with fiendish exultation ; "There
is his skoleton" this is devilish! You may
oall it by as many pretty names as you please,
but it is devilish! and you will do nothing
worse thin this when you go to hell for you
may expeot to go there if yon-have inch a dis
position and do not change it. Talk about
cannibalism! Cannibals never eat a man till
he is dead. They are nearer Christ than you
are, a great deal.

Read what she says about "dear Dublin,"
and my "dear Irish." If our memory serves
us rightly she has said something about "dear

October 19 :
Gentlemen: I have been favored with a
handsome and elegant copy of Von Giovanni.
Should Heaven acoord me the power to revisit
theeity of my sympathies, that dear Dublin,
I hope to be able to exprest in words, better
than is these hasty lines, my lively sense of
gratitude toward those gentlemen who have
conceived the graceful idea of giving me so
beautiful a present I encourage myaolf with
the flattering hope of assuring them in person,
hereafter, how muoh I prize their gifc. I
could wish that my dear Irish knew that I can
never forget the proofs of kind sympathy they
have given me, and that neither time nor
distance can ever obliterate them from my re
collection.: Believe that I sign myself, with
sentiments of much esteem, your most obliged,

The Rev. blackguard, Clay Dean, purchased
a cowhide Saturday evening, and tried to make
his Democratic friends believe he was hunting
for us. He need not wear out shoe-leather in
hunticg for the editor of this paper. He can
always be found at the office during usual
business hours, and for the most part until
late at night. Dean's grievanoe, we suppose,
was the notice of Dr. L'ads's retirement from
the Fort MadiBon Tlainiealer, in which we
said that Eads was the most abandoned, God
forsaken villain in the State of Iowa, not ex
cepting Farmer and Clay Dean. So far as we
have made an exception in favor of Dean, we
take it back. Filthy and disgusting in per
son, vain depraved and vloious In mind at
-onoe a bully and a coward, having none of
mote vircues or graces wnion adorn a gentle
man, gloriying in infamy andrejoiocing in his
own shame, the school for scandal and vies
cannot produce his equal; our jails and peni
tentiaries will be searched in vain to find his
peer. We are at the office from seven o'clock
in the morning till ten o'olook at night.

Particulars the Death of Washington
Wednesday's New York papers furnish
few particulars of Washington Irving's death,
which took plaoe at his residence, Sunnyside,
near Irvington, at half-past ten o'clock on
Monday night. Though . his health has not
been robust for some time, no apprehensions of
proximate decease was entertained by Mr,
Irvine's friends. His advanoed age, however,
and his general deoline prevented his death
from being a matter of surprise. He was at
church, in Tarry town, as usual, on Sunday,
and though feeble, enjoyed his customary
health on Monday. While preparing to retire
a little after ten o'olook on Monday night, he
was seised with shortness of breath, and soon
afterward peacefully breathed his last, In the
seventy-seventh year of his ago.
The news of his death was received in New
York bn Tuesday forenoon. The announce
ment caused a profound sensation, and im
mediately flags were displayed at half-staff
upon the publio buildings, and such other
means were resorted to as would appropriately
express the feelings of the publio on the occa
sion. ''
Wednesday's New York Timet obsorvos s
An announcement like that of the doath of
Washington Irving hardly needs iiewspapor
publicity to make it generally known. The
intelligence of the unexpected and melancholy
tidings reached the oity at noon yesterday.
A mark of respect was acoorded on the Instant
to his memory, which would hardly have been
thown any other American author. The flags
on the City Hall, and on the other publio
buildings, were at onoe displayed at half-mast,
and Mayor Tlemann issued a call for a special
meeiing of both branohes of the Common Coun
cil, that measures might be adopted to signify
the veneration in whioh New York holds the
fame of "Diedrioh Knickerbocker." The in
oi dents whioh marked the last hours of the
deoeased are naturally objects of poouliar in
terest. At 10 o'clock on Monday evening Mr.
Irving retired to bis room, and on reaching
the door of his apartment stumbled and fell.
One of the two nieces who have recently been
bis constant attendants, was immediately at
his side, and summoned a nhvaieian. hut Vii
aid was unavailing. In a few momonts the
sufferer breathed his last. Throughout the
Union his decease will be received with
more or less of the same sad sentiments
It has excited here, and more agitating
topics will for the moment be forgotten in the
sorrow whioh will everywhere bo felt at the
lots of one who has done so much to ndi-nnm
and elevate our national literature.
Rabelais and the Cardinal. Rabelais
was physician to Cardinal Lorraine, who was
one of the most renowned epiouree of his age.
One part of his daily duty was to wait upon
the Cardinal at dinner and point out to him
what dishes were indigestible, and what food
might bo partakon of with impunity. One
day a dish of lampreys was Bet before his em
inence, and he immediately plunged his fork
into one of the orispest and largest of the Bah,
preparatory to removing it to his plate Ra
belais, however, interposed with tho gravest
air, and tapping the dish containing the
lamprevs three times a cahalinlin nnmlmr
shook his. formidable wig, and said, iu the
gravest tones of solemn warning, "Indigest
ible! Indigestible! indigestible!" The Cardi
nal turned pale with horror. "Take it away!"
he exclaimed, and a servant Instantly soized
upon the unoffending dish. "Hallo, you sirl"
cried the physician, "bring those lampreys to
me!" And before the Cardinal could rtxovor
from his astonishment aud indignation, Ra
belais had devoured every one of the lish.
"Sir!"' exolaimed his eminenco, as booh as
he oould recover breath for utteranoo, "What
is the meaning of this conduct? You con
demn this food as indiireatiblo. and vet make
no scruple of devouring it before my very eyes."
"I beg your eminence's pardon," said the
iooior, numoiy; l tapped the dish, and
that, you will certainly aoknowl?dce. is indi
gestible enough. As for the fish I n as as
tonished at your sending them away; they
are not only easy of digestion, but I assure
you I find their flavor very exquisite, and
have eaten them with a perfeot relish."
How. Thomas Corwin Lectures on Govern
ment. Hon. Thomas Corwin delivered a lec
tureone of the Plymouth Course in Rev.
Henry Ward Beecher's Church, Brooklyn, N.
Y., on Tuesday evening, to a very large audi
enoe. It wat mainly a reply to a previous
leoiure uenvereu in mo same place, ny wen
dell Phillips. The speaker held that in a
government which was oreated, and which
existed by mutual and voluntary agreement,
the laws thus agreed upon could only be al
tered or annuled in the way spooified in tho
agreement; namely, throueh the ballot-box.
And, consequently, he held that any retort to
violenoe for the furtherance of individual
ideas of reform, could only be met by vio
lencehemp and the gallows. - He spoke for
more than an hour and a half, was listened
to with marked attention, and his sentiments
and illustrations were received with enthusi
astic applause

The rosiTioN or Napoleon Toward the
Pope. The Paris Steele replies as follows to
an assertion made by one of the journals
which always defend the Pope, no matter in
what conjuncture: -')
We have assorted that in his proclamations
and in his speeches, the Emperor has con
stantly manifested his respect and deference
for the Papacy; but that ha has never guar
anteed the territory of the Pontificlal States.
To this assertion of ours the Ami de la Reli
gion opposes tho proclamation of the 3d of
May: "ve are no going io iiaiy to lomoni
disorder or weaken the power of tho Holv
Father, whom we roitored to his throno." It
must bo admitted that a rather froe system of
interpretation is necessary to hnd any guar
anty of territory iu. those words. There can
bo no doubt that tho French policy whioh
went to combat Austrian influence, had no
deeien to overturn the throne of the Holv
Father, or to deprive him of any portion of
his States; but must wo necessarily come to
the conclusion thtit France guarantees to the
Pope all his territory, even against those of
His subjects wno nave snsnon on uio yoater
To do so would bo giving the words a mean
ing whict'. they never had, and to do bo would
be an insult to common sonBe and plain dealing-
