Tha Emheat Brooklyn Divine's Sun? day Sermon. "?iiil'Ject: ?'Xlie Truth Almut K?iH?la." TaXT: "iVe-sii/iinr-iou? are they, self Hilled: they are not afutiA to speak ei il of dignities."?II Peter ii., 1". Among a most reprehensible crew Peter here paint? by one stroke the portrait of those who ?Jelight to slash at people in au? thority. Now we all have a right to criti? cise evil behavior, whether in high place? or low, but the fact that one is high up is no proof that he ought to be brought down. It is a bad streak of human nature now, as it was in the time of the text a bad streak of human nature, that succjss of any kind excites the jealous antipathy ot those who cannot climb the same steep. There never was a David on tbe throne that there was not some Absalom who wanted to get it. There never was a Christ but the world ha 1 saw and hammer ready to fashion a cross on which to assassinate Hin. Out of this evil spirit grow not only indi? vidual but national and international def? amation. To no country has more injustice been done than to our own in days that arc pa?t. Long before "Martin Chuzzfewitt" was printed the literature of the world scoffed at everything Amerie-an. Victor Hu,'<>, n? honest as he was unequaled in literary power, was so misinformed concerning Amer ii-a that he wrote: 'The most singular thing h the need of whittling, with which all Americans are possessed. It is such that on -Sunday they give the sailors little bit? of wood, because it they did not they woulel whittle the ship. In court, at th9 moat critical moment, the ju leo, whittling, ?ays: 'Prisoner, are you guilty:'" an i the accused tranquilly responls, whittling, 'I am not ??uilty.' " Lord John Rus.?e!l c.illel us "a bubble bursting nationality." But otar c mntry has at last recovered from such caricature, an 1 there is not a street in any city of Europe or Asia where tbe word "America'' will not w n deference. But there is a sister nation on the other sitie of the sea now going through the process of international datam? ation. There is nocountry on earth so mis? understood as RiiT-ria, and no monarch more misrepresented than it, emperor. Will it not be in the cause of imtic? if I try to set right the minds o? th ?se who comprise this august assemblage and the minds of those to whom, on both sides of the ocean, these words shall corut' If the slander of one ??erson is wicked, then the slanler of one hundred and twelve million people is one hundred and twelve million times more wicked. lu the name of righteousn"??=. anl in be? half of civilization, anl for the en'ouragee roent of all tho*e gooJ people who have been dishearten.*! by the scandalizUion of Russia, I now speak. But Russia is so vast a subject that to treat it in on? discourse i? like attempting to ru-? N.agira Falls oavr one raid wheel. Do not thin?* tint the very naked courtesies extended m? by the ein? fror and empress of Ku*?ia have conp'i inentel me into tho alvo,* icy of that em? pire, for 1 shall present you authenticat.? i facts that will ravers? your opinion?, if they have been antagonistic, as mine were re? versed. I went last summer to Russia with as many baleful preju lice.? as would make an avalanche from toe mountain of fabric ition which has for year? been heaped up against that empire. You ask ho?v is it pcvsib'.e that such appal'iln.? misr?; r.-sentations of Russia coulej .?-tau i - 1 a.rou'it for it by the fact that the Russian Ian-; l?ge is to mot an impassable wall. Maliga th? United States or malign Urea' Britain ir Germany or France, and by the next ca'jlo^ram the fal-sehovl i? ? ? -ve all tiiiierstind English, anl in an v of our peooleare farnrli n with German and French. But the Russian language, beautiful a-ilea?.* t? th?sebor.i to speak it, is to most TO :*i uu pronouncablo t mgu?, an 1 i: at S: I Durg or Mose.*??* any auti-Ru-siau calumny : were denied themastof the wjrli outside of j Russia would never see or hear the denial. ! What are the motive? for misrepresenta? tion? Commercial interests and int??nri tional jealou?ly. Russia is as lar-e as all the rest o* Earop? pat together. Remember that a nation is only a man or a woman on a big scale. Go into any neighborhood of America and ask the p'iy>k-ian who ha? a practice what he t links of the physi? cian who has a large practice. Ask a lawyer who has no briefs what he thinks of th-? law? yer who has three rooms tilled with clerks trying in vain totransact the superabundant business that comes to him. Ask the minis? ter who has a very limited au lien?? What he thinks of the minster who has over? flowing aullen ? m. Why does not Europe like Russia'- Bc r-iu-e sh? has enough acreage to swallow all Europe and feel she had only half a meal, i ?s a? rong as North an 1 South America put together. "But," ?ays same ou?, "do you mean to charge the author and the lec? turers who have written or spoken agiin,t Russia with ?alsehooi*?'* By no means. You can find in any city or nation evilsinnu n.r able if you wish to discourse about them. , I saiJ at St. Petersburg to the most emi? nent lady of Russia outside of the imperial family, "Are thoie stories of cruelty and outrage that 1 have heard and read about true.?" She replied: "No doubt some of them are true, but do you not in America ever have officers of the law cruel and out? rageous in their treeatment of offender, 1) 1 you not have instances where the police have clubbed innocent persons: Have you no instances where people in brief authority act arrogantly ?" I replied, "Yes, we do." T?en she said; ' Why do?s the world bold our government responsible for exceptional outrages- As soon as an official is found to be cruel he immediately loses his place." Then I bethought myself, Do the people in America hold the Government of (Tastilng tou responsible for tbe Homestead riot? or for railroad insurrection-?, or forth? tur, 1 of the villian that consumes a block of houses, or for Km ruffians who arrest a rail train, making the passengers bold up their arms until the poc :ets are picted:- Why, then hold the emperor of Russia, who is as impressive and genial a man as 1 h ive ever looked at or talked with, responsible for the wrongs enacted in a nation with a popula? tion twice as large ia r? nbers as the mill? ions of America? Suppose one monar-h in Europe ruled over England, Se- >tlan I, Ire? land Franc?, Germauv, Spaiu, Italy, A'i? tria, Norway and Sweden. Would it be fair to hold the monarch re? sponsible fol* all that occurred in that mighty dominion Now vo-j mu,t remem? ber that Alexander tbe Tnlrd reign* over wider dominion than a!1 those empire? put together. A* a nation is only a man or a woman on a big scale, let me ask, would you individually prefer to bo ju Ige 1 by your faults or your virtu >s? All people except ourselves have faults. The pessimist attempting to write your biography would take you in your a moods, and tbe picture of you on the first ?of your biography would be as you ?d after ?ome meannee, had been prac tie'-xl on you and you were tearing mal. Now, as I am an optimist, 1 give you fair warning that it 1 ever write your biography I will take you as you looke I the day y oui dividend came in twenty per cent, large than you ever anticipated, or the mornin on tout way to business after your flra child wa? born, or the morning after youi oonver-rion, when heaven had rolled in or your ?oat. The most accursed homunculi o all the earth are the pessimists, who whether they hidge Individual or nation* chai-actor, and whether th??y wield tongu' or pen. are -ailed with anathematization and who have more to ?ay about the freckle? on the cheek of beaut*/ than of the sunris* and sunsets that flush it. It i? most important that this eountrj have right ideas econcerning Russia, foi among all the nations this side of heaven Russia is America's best friend. There ha? not been an hour in the last seventy-five years that ttiu shipwreck of free institution, in America would not have eallejd fort! from all the despotisms of Europe ant Asia a ?boat of gladness wide as earth an, deep a? perdition. But whoever else falle, U?, Hiiasia never did, and whoever else wa? eloubtful, Russia never wa?. Kuscia, then at old government, smiled on th? cradle of oui government while yet in itseaarliejat infancy Emprejw Catherine of Russia in 1776 01 thereabouts offered kindly interference that our thirteen colonie? might not go down un der tbe cruelties of war. Again, in 1813. Russia stretchel forth to ward us a rnerdf ul han 1. When our dread ful civil war wa? ragin*- and the two thin derdoods of northern and southern va!??t clashed, Russia practically said to the na tions of Europe. "K?aep your hands off an : l"t the brave men of the north and the ?outh ?ettle their own troubles."' I rehearse?: some of those sc?nos to the emperor las! July, ?ayinft?, "You were probably to young to remember the position your rathei took at that time.'' but with radiant ?mill he i*-?-pond?d "Oh, ye?. I remember, I re member,'' and there was an accentuation of the word? which demonstrated to m? that those c-otjurrences had often been talked of in the imperial household. I stood on New York Battery during the war, a* I suppose many of you did, looking off through a magnifying glass up an a fleet of Russian ship?. "What are they doin? ?liia-rer I aakei, and so every on? asked "Whst busine-B have the Ru?sian warship* in our New York harbor?' Word came thai another fleet of Russian warships was 10 San Francisco harbor. "What doe* this mean'" our ro?ers asked, but did not g?t im? mediate an?wer. In the?-? two American harbor? the Russian fleets seemed souni asleep. Their great mouths of iron ?poke not a word, and the Russian flag, whet floating in the air or drooping by the fl staff, made no answer to our in?juisitl assa William H. Seward, sscretary of sti asked the Russian minister at washing the meaning of those Russian ship? in An ican waters and got no satisfactory spouse. Admiral Farragut said to a Rusi officer after dining in the home of the t nent politician, Tnurlow Weed, that mi and untnaker of presldeuts, "What are ? doinx here with tho--) Russian vessels war"' Not until the war was over wa? found out that tu case of foreign inter? tion all the guns and the last gun of tl two fleets in New York and San Franc harbors were to open in full diapason u? any foreign ship that should dar? to in' fere with the right of Americans, north i south, to settle their owneontrovorsv But for those fl jets and tluir prsSMMS American waters there can be no do that two of the mightiest nations of Eur would have min?le i in our tight. Hut those two fleets the American governm would have been to-day only a name in i tory. 1 declare bafore Go 1 and the nat that 1 believe Russia saved the Uni States of America. Last July I stood fore a great throng of Ru-sians in the < barrassing position of speaking to an au en-ce three-fourths of which ?could not I derstan t my language any more than could uu lerst m 1 their*?. But there w? tw?> names that they thoroughly und Stood as well as you understand them, c the utterance of those two names br??u. forth an acclamation that made the ci hall of St. Petersburg quake fro'n foun tion stone to towers, and those two nan wer a "George Washington and A brain Lincoln.'' ISow is it not important that we shot feel right toward taat mighty, that G givjn friend of more than bus hund? year- Yea, bseaat) it isa nation of mi possibilities than anyothe , except our o< should we cultivate its friendship. There a rast realm o? Rissia as yet unoeeupit If the population of the rest of Europe w? poured iuto Russia it would be only partial occupied. After awhile America will bo well populated that the ti tea of emigrati will R?i the othar way, and by railroa from Russia at Behring straits?where A? comes within thirty six miles of joinii America?millions of people will pour do? through Russia and Siberia, and on do? through all the regions waiting for t civilisation of the next century and culture great harvests an 1 buili inigb cities. What the I'uitei ?States now are on t wwtern hemisphere Russia will be on t eastern heniWpbera, Not only because what Russia has bean 13 our republic, b liecause of what she will be, let us coisa ti defamation of all that pertains to that gre empire. K Russia can afford to be the frie of America, America can afford to be t friend of Russia. And now I pro.*esi to ? what I told the emperor and the eiipn and all the imperial family at the palace Peterho? I would do if I ever got back America, and that is to answer some of tl calumnies which have been announced ai reiterated and sterteotyped against Russia. Calumny the First?The emperor and t the imperial family are in perpatual dr<-? of assassination. Th .y aiv practically pr, oners in the winter pala???*, and trenches ?il dynamite have been found du? around V winter palace. They dare not venture fort exc**pt prtf'led and follow? 1 and sarrosa e.l by a mo-t elaborate military guard. My answer to this is that I never saw face more free from worriment than the ec peror's face. Tue winter nalact?, a rout, which the trenches are said to have bex f'iarged with dynamite, an I in which tl imperial family are said to be prit never been the residence of the imperil family one moment s-inco the present e:; pt-ror bas been on the throne. The winter pataca has b -en chsage 1 Int a massSUa and a pictura gallery an l a plac of great levee*-. He spsnas his rammer i the palace at Peterhof, fifteen or twent miles from St. Petersburg; hi- autu uns t the palace at Orat-chna, aud his winters i a palace at ?St. Petersburg, but in quite different part of the city to that occupie by the winter palace. He rides through tl streets unattended: except by the eainrei at his side aud the driver on tho box. Thei is not a person In this audience more fn from fear of harm than he is. His rabject not ouly altnire him but almos!; wjrshi him. There are cranks in Russia. Lut have w not had our Charles Qaitean an I Joh Wilkes Booth? ''But" ssys some one, "?ii net the Russian? kill the father o.' the pre* eut em|>ei-or''' Yes. but in the time thl Russia has had one assassination of en peror America has had two presl lents sses .-inated. -'liut is not the emperor mi sat? eral "'' By which you mean, has he ne power without restriction'- Yes, bat it a depen 's upon what use a man makes of h 1 o w.r. Are you an autocru-. in you:- fact ?ry.or s autocrat in your store, or an autocrat i your style of business' It all depends o what use you make of your power, whethe to bl??ss or to oppress, and fro n the time o Peter the Great thst Hastian who was th wonder of all time, the emperor whobecaun incognite a ship carpenter that hi mifta help ship carpenters, and a mechanic tha he might help mechanic?, and put on r*> > men's garb that he might sympathu ? wltl poor men, and who In his last words -?i.i "Ms Lord, I am dying. On, help my untie lief "'?I say from that time the thron? o is has for the mo?t part, been occupie by rulers as beneficent and kind anl sy.n pathetic as they were powerful. To go no further back than Nicholas, th grandfather of the present emperor Nicholas had for the dominant idea of hi administration the emancipation of th. serfs. When It was found that he pn?-n*di tit-1th? freedom of the serfs ha receive? the following letter of threat from a d?puta tion of noblemen: "Your Imperial Ma jest.? ?-We learn that the council an 1 .-<?' the empire have before them for delibera ti it?, with your sanction, the plan to abolis! seridom throughout the Russian empire, We are perfectly willing to abide by yom majesty's decision iu this matter anl t< lo.ally support your will, but there are in Russia a large number of small owners o serfs who are dep-ndent for actual rabsttd ence on the labor of those serf?, an 1 wh coaseuuently will be left wholly pennfleei and without any resource by the operatvn of emancipation. They will then undoubte?ilj resort to desperat; measure?, and in the ? * treroity of their de-pair will put the life ol your majesty in jeopardy." The emperor replied in words that will last as Ion? as history, "ueut'.emen, if 1 should die because of my devotion to such a cause, I am willing to meet my fate.'' When, . uuder an attac- of pnmmonia from ex? posure to severe weather in th e service ol his people, that emp-ror p?it d iwn his hea t on the pillow of dust. Rnssii lost as good a ! monarch as was ever crown?. 1. Then cam? [ Alexander the Second, father of the prsssnl ? emperor. Amid the migbti?>st opposition ? and innumerable prot?ts, h?, with on?: stroke of his pen, emancipated twenty mil? lion serfs, practically saying, ?'Go free, Bs ; your own masters, and this is for you and i your children forever." 11 \ the day he was basely assassinate I i (and I will parenthetically say that I saw ?rriage in splinters, as it looked when | he stepped from it, not to save himself, but ! to look after some poor people o* the street ? who had bean hurt, and I saw the bed on ! which he died, the mattress yet crimson with i his life's blood) ?on the day'he was assassin I ated he bad on his table, found afterward, a ; free constitution that proposai to giva the rijht of suffrage to the people of Russia. If it had not been for the assassination he I would bave soon lined that constitution, j but that horrible violen?-* put things bac..-, as violence always does. What a marvelous character ?if kin In-" I was Alexwler theN-conl, the father of the present emperor, so that the present em p-ror. Alexander the Third, inherits his be nign'ty. Alexander the Second, hearing tiat a nobleman had, formel a conspiracy against his life, had him arrested. Then the ?ryes of tlie criminal w< re ban l?ge I, and he Wits p\it.ip acarriaj?, anl for sometime travels 1 on, only stopping for foo). Alter awhile the bandage was remove I, and sup? posing that he must by that time have been almost in Siberia, he found that ha was at the door of his own home. But this puu iahmeut was sufficient. The same eup-ror, having beard I poet bad written a poem defamatory of hi? empress, ordered the po?t into bis presence. ] Expecting great sev-rity, the poet entered the palace and found the emperor and tttf ? and dukes and duchn-ses gather?.'! to ! gether. "Oood m ?rning,'' siid the emperor i to th>* offender. "I hear you have written a most beautiful poem, and i have sent for T'?ii thatyou'may read it to us and we raiy h iv the pleasure of hearing it." Tte man cried out, ".send me to Sioeria or do any? thing with me, but do not make me read this poem in your presence."' He- was compellei 1 to resd the defamatory poo n, an 1 then the empress, against wham it was aimol. siid: ?id?not think h? will write an** mare verses abo it us again. L -? him go. ' And so he was free! And now come? in Alex in 1er the Tair J. doing the best things possible for the na'imi wii ?'a he loves and which as ardently loves him.

Calumny the Second?If you go to Russia you are under severe-t ????pionaif ??, stopjie I here and ?--uistwa?**i thsia, an i in danger of arrest. But my opinion Is that if a m is disturbe! in Russia it is because ought to lie disturbed. Rnssia i* the on country in Europe in which my bag -a wa? not examine 1.

There is ten times more di culty in getting your luggage through t American custom house tbau throu-'n t Russian. I speak not of myself, for fr?en intercede for me on American wharves, a I am not detained. I was several d lys Russia before I was asked if I had any pa? port at all. Depend upon it, if hereafter a m in I lieves he is uuc nnfortably watched by t police of St. Petersburg or Moscow it is 1 cause there is something suspicious abo him. and you yourself had better, when is aroun 1, look after your silver spoons, promise you, an honest man or an hon' woman, that when you go there, as many you will?for European travel is de-tine 1 change its course from southern Europe those northern regions?you will have more molestation or ?-u per visa I than Brooklyn or New York or the quietest Loi Island village. Calumny the Third? Ru?sii an 1 its nil are so oppose i t , any orner religion ex,-?, the Greek religion/ that Wwy will not alio any other religion; that nothing but peiv cution and imprisonment and outrage int ?rable await the ?liscip'e* of any e>:ber r ligion.

Now which do you think is the best style of a prison?Sibertaor many of our American prisons? When a man commits a big crime in our country, the ju ige looks into the frighteil face of the cul? prit and says, "You have b??en found guilty; I sentenca vou to the peunitentiarv for ten years." He goes to prison. He is shut in between four walls. No sunlight. No fresh air. No bathroom. Before ho has served his ten years he dies of consumption or i? so enervated that for the rest of his life he sits with folded hands?a wheez ng invalid. In preference to the shut in life of the average American prisoner, give me Si? beria. Besides that, when offenders ?*orae out of prison in America, what chanco bave t.iey?

IHH "Wonder? ?tvilh figure?. - A committee of lhe French Acade? my has recently investigated the latest of mathematical prcvd igles, Jacques lnaudi by name, and a writ? er In the Re-yiie dal Deux M /tides offers an Interesting account 0/ the lnaudi, who Is now 25 years old, is of poor family, and his child? hood was spent in laking care of iheep. His extraordinary mathe? matical genius showed itself when he was 6 years o'd. His older broth? er had taught him to ?-?Hint, hut so far as Is known did not teach him the multiplication table. At that time neither of the boys could read. Within a year Jacques could multi? ply In his head numbers containing Bve figures each. The c)lrie>r brother ??'.on left home sn a barrel-organ trip, and Jacques iccnnipanied him. to collect the pen? ales and exhibit his skill at figure?. Not long afterward a showman en? gaged him. and he ruade his first appearance* in Paris. His wonderful performances are in lidltlon, subtraction, multiplication, Jivision, and the extraction of rooU. When a probten* is given to him he listens, repeats it, says. "I begin," falls to muttering rapidly to himself, tnd presently says, "I am done," and announce? the result. While he is engag?e! in the calcu? lation nothing disturbs him. and he alll answer questions and even carry >n conversation during (he process? ;hat Is to say, while he Is multiply? ing lu his head eight figures by eight figures, or reckoning the numbe.r of seconds In h given term of years, months, days, and hours! In the same way he will add in a few sec DDdl seven numbers of eight or ten figures ea'-h. or extr.n*t 111" sixth or seventh root. If. Binet. the writer of the Revue article, believes that the case fur? nishes strong confirmation of the theory cif "partial memories" -memo? ries, that is, for particular classes of *?bject*. lnaudi will repeat after you twenty-five figures, while an or? dinary man could n'?t repeat more than from seven to ten. If letters are given to lnaudi, however, he can? not repeat more than seven or eight. It Is believe 1 furthor that his MM indicates the fad that there is such a thing as an "auditive" as well as a "visualizing" memory. Most mathe? matical prodigies have professed to see. mentally, the figures with which they had to do, while lnaudi invari? ably declares that he does not s?e, but hears them. This goo? with his hal-it of whispering or muttering to himself during the operations, and it has been n-iti'-ed that if he tries not to whisper bo is mu?'h longer in reaching hi? result. At some time since he was 13 yean old lnaudi ha?, learned to read and writ??, but even now. we are told, bis education in many respects Is only rudimentary. HORRIBLE SUFFERINGS.

The Empress of Russia is as slender aud petite as the Czar is strong and massive. She is not beautiful and not j homely. Her nose is slightly retrousse, hut her features are otherwise well formed, and her eyes are bright and kindly. She is one of the most beauti? ful dancers in Russia, and she is as fond of dancing as a Danish country girl. At the winter palaco in St. Peters burgll are given each year some of the ? most wonderful halls in the world. j Seven thousand people can live in this palace, and tic thousands of dancers 1 trip the light futattic toe over floors of \ ebony, of rosewood and ivory. Now i and then the Empress appears at th?se dances in her royal robes. She wears a ' gorgeous crown which fairly blazes with diamonds. Her necklace is of many strands of the purest pearl?, and her vest is a ma's of rubies, sapphires and diamonds, put together so that they blaze like fire. Due of her gowns is of emerald velvet ??tha train of white velvet, which is fairly covered with gold embroidery, ' and the front of which is linked witL ! strands of the purest coral. The jewels on one of these robet 1 would make an American village rich, . snd their value surpasses computation. In the treasury at Moscow I saw the Em j presses coronation robe. Tbe train ol ? this was of woven silver, and there wai enough of wpven silver cloth in the robe to have carpeted an ordinary parlor. Her majesty's foot has a high instep, i and her sbfl is No. 2 I*.

Full velvet sleeves, contrasting often very vividly with the color of the gowns they adorn, appear upon some of thi newest autumn creations, both French snd American. A great novelty in the faced camel'i i hair cloaking, in which the outside ii usually of some of the beige tints, the inner side showing old rose, blue green or mauve tones. Box plaits appear upon some of the newest modes in dress skirts. Some ol the plaits show at the back only, othen in the front and on still others they form a Watteau fold that reaches from the neck to the hem in the back. French capotes are of light colored felt, which comes in squares for the pur j pose, and are dented and twisted into : most becoming shapes. Velvet and flow ? era trim them, and muffs of the felt, ? pleated with velvet, are worn with them. Borne of the new skirts in cornet shape in the back and only medium in length bave a rich trimming surrounding the front breadth, which defines a tablier. This trimming, in pointed passementerie or cut-jet gimp, is repeated along thi back teams. A most charmiug bonnet, which will be much in vo.-ue for evening wear, it made of coarse white or black lace, and fits the head exactly like the cap of s French pestant.

Tha ??Silent Clly.*" Many stories have been written about mira-res and delusions, but none have been more interesting and curious than that of the BUeat City mirage, which makes Its appearance near the Pacific glacier, in Alaska. The discovery of this wonderful mirage was male by the Indians, who wou'd tell of the city which was built In tho clouds. The mirage can be seen in the early part of June from 5 to 8 p. m. It rises from the bids of the Paoiflo glacier. It first appears like a he#Ty mist, and soon becomes eletrer, and cno can distinctly pee th?i speotar city, well-defined streets and Ires9, tall spires, huge and od l-nhaped buildings, which appear to be ancient niosjues or cathedrals. It le a city which would seem to contain at least 25,000 or 30,000 Inhabitants. As yet no one has been able to identify it. although several have elaln I to recognize the place. There is no city like it in Alaska, nor in any country about It for thous? ands of miles. Some claim It is a city In Russia, others say it is a city in Eng? land, but none can tell where it Is. The mirage was given the name of "Silent City," as it appears to be one like a dead nity; there Is nothing that would indicate Vt Is inhabited. Cnmplt-xion cleared with Smalt Bile B-ar.s.
