There are of course some dis appointments. This is usual. Even the political opponents of Mr. Carlisle praise him for the care he has exercised, and recognize his most earnest endeavors to not only satisfy those directly interested, but to render the most possible satisfac tion to the country. There were many conflicting interests to be considered in the formation of the committees, and many members not only begged to be placed on certain committees, but refused in advsnce to serve if given assignments they did not like and which they named. It is believed that Mr. Carlisle has acted wisely in view of the policy of his party respecting tariff reform, appropriations, pensions, financial matters, territorial in terests, railroad, educational, labor and other interests pressing Congress. The Speaker said last night that he was never more completely exhausted from bis work, and that he felt greatly relieved now that it was finished. Most of the committees will meet to-day and organ ize by the election of sub-committees and the assignment of measures which have already been referred, and will appoint clerks, etc. Members of the committee on ways and means say they believe that hearings will lie granted on tariff matters, and that those most interested will be given op portunity to present arguments verbally and written. Thomas Callan's American Friends Will Stand by Illin. t Nsw York, Jan. 6. Thomas Callan, alias Thomas Scott, who was arrested in London last November with Mitchell Har kins on suspicion of being a dynamiter, has at last secured a legal defender. General Roger -A. Pryor, of this city, yesterday cabled C. J. Guy, the solicitor who defended O'DonnelJ, asking him to take charge of Callan's case. In three hours came a reply saying that he would defend Callan. "Callan," said General Prior to the cor respondent yesterday, "was a brave Union soldier. After the war he settled in Lowell and is a member of tho G. A. R. there. His post will j ay for his counsel. Some days ago they ent to me asking me to undertake Ca:ian's defense, f could not go over there, so I retained counsel by cable. AVhen M. O'Connor Power, ex-member of Parliament, arrived here on business, I asked him if he could take the case. Ho said he would, but aft erwards found it would be impossi ble unless it were postponed. The people of Lowell who know Callan believe in his innocence, and depositions s to bis high character have been signed by Mayor J. G. Abbott and a number of prominent citizens to be forwarded to London. Callan was waiting for money, for which he had sent to Lowell, and i was during this time he was arrested. The money, when it came, was taken charge of bv the detectives." 'George, dear. ince you ask me, I do Jov-.-. y-iu" aai glad to hear you fay so.

The Past Year Oead, the Century lylas A Look Into tlie Beyond-AVorld- ly Ideas of Heaven Far Short of the Keality. f xhe subject of Rev. T. DeAVittTalmage's New Year's discourse was "The Coming Glory," his text being: Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither nave entered into tho heart of man the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. He said: 1S8S. How strange it looks, and how strango it sounds ! Not only is the past year dead, but the century is dving. Only twelve more long breaths and tho old giant will have expired. None of the past centuries will bo present at the obsequies. Only the twentieth century will see the nineteenth buried. As all the years are hastening past, and all our lives on earth will soon be ended, I propose to cheer myself, and cheer you with tho glories to come, which shall utterly eclipse all the glories past; for my text tells us that, eye hath not seen nor ear heard anything like the ad vancing splrmdor. The City of Corinth has been called the Paris of a Atiquity. Indeed, for splendor, the worl d holds no such wonder to-day. It stood on an isthmus washed by two sens t'ie one sea bringing the commerce of Em-ope, the other bringing the com mer ce of Asia. From her wharves, m the no..wiinn nf which whole kingdoms ' ..,1 hnn absorbed, war-galleys with threo banks of oars pushed out and con founded the navy-yards of all the world. Hue-hnnded machinery, such as mode- Invention can not equal, liltea sn ,.a the sea on one side and trap .m from rn trucks acioss the . . .-ported them them down in the The reven'' - down - ,nWa nthmu3 fend sat on the other side. of the city went rnrougn tne olive grove that the beach from all of all pooplo to collect tariff mirth nations. The sported in her isthmian games, and the beauty of all lands sat in porticos, und her theaters, walked her threw itself on the altar of her stupendous dissipations. Column, and statue, and temple bewildered the be holder. There were white marble fount ains into which, from apertures at the side, there rushed waters everywhere known for heaith-giving qualities Around these basins, twisted into wreaths of stone, there were all the beauties of sculpture nud architecture; while stand ing, as if t6 guard the costly display, was a statue of Hercules of burnished Corin thian brass. Vases of terra cotta adorned the cemeteries of the dead vases so cost ly that Julius Caesar was not satisfied un til he had captured them for Rome. Armod officials, the corintharii, paced up and down to se9 that no statue was defaced. no pedestal overthrown, no bas-relief touched. From the edge of the city a hill aroe, with its magnificent burden of col umns, and ton ers, and temples (one thous and slaves waiting at one shrine), and a citadel so thoroughly impregnable that Gibraltar is a heap of sand compared with it. Amid all that strength and magnifi cence Corinth stood, and defied the woi Id. Oh ! It was not to rust'es who had never seen any thing grand that Paul uttered this text. They had heard the best music that had come from tho best instruments in all the world; they had heard songs floating from morning porticos and melt ing in evening groves; they had passed their whole lives among pictures, and sculpture, and architecture, and Corinth ian brass, which bad been molded and shaped until there was no chariot wheel in which it had not sped, and no tower in which it had not glittered, and no gateway that it had not adorned. Ah, it was a bold thing for Paul to stand there amid all that and say: "All this is nothing. These sounds that come from the temple of Neptune are not music compared with the harmonies of which I speak. These waters rushing in the basin of Pyrene are not pure. These statues of Bacchus and Mercury are not exquisite. Your citadel of Acrocorinthus is not strong compared with that which I offer to the poorest slave that puts down his burden at that brazen gate. You Cor inthians think this is a splendid city; you think you bavo heard all sweet sounds, and seen all beautiful sights, but I tell you eye hath not seen nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man. the things which God has prepared for them that love him." You see my text sets forth the idea that however exalted our ideas may be of Heaven, they come far short of the reality. Some wise men have been calcu lating how many furlongs long and wide is the new Jerusalem; and they have calculated how many inhabit ants there are on the earth, how long the earth will probably stand, and then they come to this estimate: That, after all the nations have been gathered to Heaven, there will be room for each soul a room sixteen fet'long and fifteen feet wide. It would not be large enough for me. I am glad to know that no human estimate is sufficient to take tlie dimensions. "Eye hath not seen nor ear heard," nor arith metics calculated. I first remark that we can in this world get no idea of the wealth of Heaven. AVhen you were a child, and when you went out in the morning, how you bounded along the road or street you bad never felt sorrow or sickness. Perhaps later you felt a glow in your cheek, and a spring in your step, and an exuberance of spirits, and a clearness of eye, that made you thank God you were permitted to live. The nerves were harp -strings, and the sunlight was a doxology, and the rustling leaves were the rustling of the robes of a great crowd rising up to praise the Lord. You thought that you knew what it was to be well, but there is no perfect health on earth. The diseases of past generations came down to us. The airs that float now upon the earth are not like those which floated above para dise. They are charged with impurities and distempers. The most elastic and ro bust health of earth, compared with that which those experience before whom the gates have been opened, is nothing but sickness and emaciation. Look at that soul standing lie fore the throne. On earth she was a life-long invalid. See her step now, and hear her voice now. Catch, if you cani one breath of that celestial air. Health in all the pulses health of vision; health of spirits; im mortal health. No racking cough, no sharp pleurisies, no consuming fevers, no exhausting pains. no hospitals of wounded men. Health swinging in the air; - health flowing in all the streams; health blooming on the banks. No head aches, no sideacbes, no backache. That child that died in the agonies of croup, hear her voice now ringing in the an them. That old man that went bowed down with the infirmities of age, see him wa'k now with the step of an immortal athlete forever young again. That night when the needle-woman fainted away in the garret, a wave of the heaven ly air resuscitated her forever. For ever lasting years to have neither ache, nor pain, nor weakness, nor fatigue. "Eye bath not neon it, ear hath uot heard it." "I remark, further, that we can, in this world, get no just sd.;a of the (splendors of Ifraveu. John triw to desi-ribe them. He saym "the twelve we twelve pef.il," aod tiiut "the fUii iul.ciis of the i'I ar gariiue-l w,rb a:l mamier of prui'-um stones."

And we turn round to see the glory and it is thrones '. thrones ! thrones t John bids us look again and we see the great procession of theredeenjed passing; Jesus, on a white horse, leads the march, and all the armies of Heaven following on white horses. Infinite cavalcade passing, passing; empires pressing into line, ages following ages. Dispensation tramping on after dispensation. GAory in the track of glory. Europe, Asia, Africa, North and South America pressing into lines. Islands of the sea shoulder to shoulder. Genera tions before the flood following genera tions after tho flood, and as Jesus rises at the head of that great bost and waves his sword in sigual of victory, all crowns are lifted, and all ensigns flung out, and all chimes rung, and all halle lujahs chanted, and somo cry, "Glory to God, most high," and some, "Hosanna to the son of David," and some, "AATorthy is the Lamb that was slain" till all ex clamation of endearment and homage in the vocabulary of Heaven are exhausted, and there comes up surge after surge of "Amen, amen, and amen!"

Every vering of the head a coronation. Every meal is a banquet. Every stroke from the tower is a wedding bell. Every day is a jubilee, every hour a rapture, and every moment an ecstacy. "Eye hath not seen it, ear hath not heard it." I remark further, we can get no idea on earth of the reunions of Heaven. If you nave ever baen across the seas and met a friend, or even an acquaintance, in some strange city, you renumber how your Diooa tnriiieu and how glad you were to see him. AV hat will bo our joys, aftar we have passed tha sum of datu to meat in tho bright city of the sun those from whom we have long After wo have boon friends ton or fifteen come upon them, wo see boen separated. away from our years, and we how differently they look. Their hair has turned and wrinkles have come in their face, and we say: "How 3-011 have changed !" But oh, when we stand before the throne, all cares gouo from tha face, all marks of sorrow disappeared, and feeling tho joy of the blessed land, methinks wo will say to each other, with an exultation we can not now ima-jino: "How you h$ve changed!" In this world we only meet m part. It is good-bye, good 'bye Fare wells floating in the air. AV o hear it at the rail-cnr window and at the steamboat wharf good'bye, Children lisp it, and old age answers it. Sometimes we say it in a light way "good-bye !" and some times with anguish, in which the soul breaks down. Good-bye! Ah! that is the word that ends the thankgiving ban quet; that is tho word that comes In to close the Christmas chant. Good-bye, good-bye. But not so In Heaven. AVelcofnes ia the air, welcomes at the gates, welcomes at the house of many mansions butnogood by. That group is constantly being aug mented. , They are going up from our cir cles of earth to join it, little voices to join the anthem littlo bauds to take bold in the groat home circle, little feet to danco in the eternal glee, littlo crowns to be cast down before the feet of Jesus. Our friends are in two groups, a group this side of the river, aud a group on the other sido of the river. Now there goes one from this to that, and another from this to that, and soon we will all bo gone over. How 'many of your loved ones have alreuily entered 11 Don that blessed place. If I should take paper and pencil, do you think I could put them all down? Ah, my friends, the waves of Jordan roar so hoarssly we can not hear tho joy on tho other side when that group is augmented. It is graves here, and coflins and hearses here. A little child's mother had died, and they comforted her. They said: "Your mother has gone to Heuven don't cry;" and, the next day, they went to the graveyard, and they laid the body- of tho mother down into the ground; and tlie little girl came up to tho verge of the grave, and. looking down at the body of the mother, said: "Is this Heaven?" Oh, we have no idea what Heaven i. It is tho grave here it is darkness here but there is merry-making yonder. Methinks when a soul arrives some angel takes it around to show it the wonders of that blessed place. Tho usher angel says to the newly arrived : "These are the martyrs that perished at Piedmont: those were torn to piecss at th-) Inquisition: this is the throne of the great Jehovah; this is Jesus." "I am going to see Jesus," said a dying boy; '"I am gom? to see Jesus." Tha missionary said: "Vou are sure you will see him?" "Oil ! yes; that's what I want to go to Heaven for," "But," said the missionary, "siHiposie Jesus should go away from Heaven what then?" "I should follow him," said the dying boy. But if Jesus went down to bell what then?" The dying lioy thought for a mo ment, and then said. "Where Jesus is there can bo no hell!" Oh! to stand in his presenc! That will be Heaven! Oh! to put our hand in that hand which was wounded for us on the cross to go around amid the groups of the re deemed, and f-hake hands with the prophets, and apotles, and martyrs, and tvith our own dear, beloved ones! That will bo the great reunion: we can not imagine it now, our beloved ones seem so far away. AVhen we are in trouble and lonesome, they don't seern to come to us. AVe go on the banks of the Jordan and call across to them, but they don't seem to hear. We say: "Is it well with the child? is it well with the loved ones?" and we listen to hear if any voice comes back over the waters. None! none! Unbelief says: "They are dead. nd they are annihilated;" but blessed be God! we have a Bible that tells us different. Wo open it and we find they are neither dead nor annihilated that they never wore so much alive as now that they are only waiting for our coming, and that we shall join them on the other side of the river. Oh, glorious reunion! We can not grasp it now. Kye hath not m-f-n. nor eur heard, sK-ltbT have entered into the heart of man the things which God hath prepared for them that love Kim. Oh what a placo of explanation it will be! I see, every day, profound mysteries f Providence. Therd is no question we ask of toner than AVhy? There are hundreds of graves iu Green wood and Laurel Hill that need to be explam-d. Hospital for the blind and lame, asylums for the idiotic and insane, a!nn -ho-ises for the destitute, and a world of pain and mis- fortunate that demand more than human solution. Ah! God will clear it all up. In the light that potirx from the throne. o dark myterv can live. Things now utterly inscrutable will be iiiim ned a plainly as though the anwcr were writ ten vu the jumper wall, or soundel iu the temple anthem. Bartimeus will ttiuuli ol tiiut be was blind; and Laxannt thai u w us cov ered with sun 1 ; aud Jos.ri.li that he wns cast into the pit: and Duiael that lie -nn-d with lions; and Pa .1 ttnt he wa h iitii iihtttik nil ! And I Ia t i Ifim Ia a.-l. irlven from Jerusalem; and that InvalM that for twenty years he could not lift his head from the pillow; and that widow that she had such bard work to earn bread for her children. The song will be all the grander for earth's weeping eyes, and aching heads, and exhaustod hands, and scourged backs, and martyred agonies. But we can get no idea of that anthem here. AVe appreciate the power of secular music, but do we appreciate the power of sacred song? There is nothing more inspiriting to me than a whole congregation lifted on the wave of holy melody. AVhen sing some of those dear old psalms and tunea they rouse all the memories of the past. AVhy, some of them were cradle songs in our father's house. They are still spark liug with tho morning dew of a thousand Christian Sabbaths. They wero sung by brothers and sisters gone now by voices that were aged and broken in th-j m us in voices none the less sweet because they did tremble and break. AVhe-i I hear these old songs sung, it seems as it all the old country meeting homei joined in the chorus, and city church, and sailors' bethel, and AVestern cabins, until the whole continent lifts the doxol' and the scepters of eternity boa ' . the muRic. Away then with - '1 ling tunes that chill tb " - 'f01 sanctuary and ma- up w hen Jesus - . - devot ons of the AVhen ge" tn9 PeoP'8 sit "dan war(I - marching on to victoryi ..erals come back front victorious ., don't we cheer them and shout riuzna," "Huzza?" and when Josus passes along In the conquest of the earth, shall we not hav.e for him one loud, ringing Cheer? All hail the pjwer of Jesus' name? Let anpels prostrate fall. Bring forth the royal diadem. And crown him Lord ot all. But, my friend, if music on earth (s 4i sweet, what will it be in Heaven? They all know the tune thoro. All the best singers of the ages will join it choirs of white-robed children, choirs ot patriarchs, choirs of apostles. Morning stars clap ping their cymbals. Harpers with their harps. Great anthems of God, roll on! roll on! other empires Joining the har mony till the thrones are all full, and tho nations all saved. Anthem shall touch anthem, chorus, join chorus, and all tho swtet sounds of earth and Heaven tie poured into the ear of Christ. David of the harp will be there. Gabriel of the trumpet will be there. Germany, redotmod, will pour its deep bass voios into the song, and Africa will add to the music with hsr matchless voices. I wish we could anticipate t hat song. I wish in our closing hymn to-day we might catch an echo that slips from the gates. AVho knows but that when the Heavenly door opens to-day to let some soul through there may comd forth the strain of the jubilant voices until we catch It? Oh, that as the song drops down from Heaven it might meet half Way a song coming up from eiirth. They rise for the doxology, all the mul titude of the blest I Let us rise with them; and so at this hour the jays of the church on earth and the joys of tho Church in Heaven will mingle their chalices, and the dark apparel of our morning will seem to whiten into the spotless raiment of the skies. God grant that, through the rich mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ we may all get there. CHOLERA THEORIES. Dlanemlfiatlon of the Plague Dui-lng- the I Ant Iluildl'iMI Yriu-s, The discussion in regi.rd to cholera hni again directed notice to tho twelve yearly pilgrimages to and tho Hindoo festivals at the great East Indian temples. Tho num ber of pilgrims who have been In the habll of going to tho East Indian nhrlnrg 1m al. most beyond belief. It is related, for ox. ample, tbnt only a few hundred thousand visit Hurdwar annually; tho third year there are more; the nixth year the ouravans are greatly Increased, anil the ninth year even more so; while the pilgrimage of tho twelfth year is attended by often from two million five hundred thousand to three million five hundred thousand of people. In the Bombay Presidency, for instance, there are nearly a hundred shrines tj which uncounted pilgrims annually go as an act of supremest worship. Theso trav elers are gathered from even the most dis tant places. The sanitary conditions which prevail during their stay and en route are deplorable. Filth nnd foulnexs are every where. Even tho ground tho travelcr camp upon is Infectpd. On their return journey they carry with them the various diseases prevalent in the localities they hav visited, and cholera is one of the most familiar and fatal Th seeds of this terri ble disorder are disseminated to Central Asia, and to I'erslu, and Afghanistan, and to the sea-coast It has always been car ried up the Persian Gulf from Bombay, Burat and other ports on tho went coast ot India, thence to the Caspian, Black and Mediterranean Sens and the adjacent ooun- triea The diissctnlnation of cholera during tho past hnndrnd years has been of such a character that the twelve 3'early visitation has been but a period of cxtrorne virulence, while the cholera itself has prevailed in various countries in its weKtward move ment. For example. In Lower Bengal it be gan in 1841, and the iiurdwiir disease in 1S43; these r ached Afghanistan In 1844, Persia in 18-10, and spread over Europe in 1840-7, and reached America In 181. It took about the same time for the India outbreak of 1826 to cross to America, al lowing for Increase in steamboat and rail road communication. The same is true of the outbreaks of 18(55 and 1800, although that period wan marked by the rapid spread of the disease owing to speedy transit re. ferred to. In May, 1877. cholera visited Calcutta, and since that outbreak there has not been a year when the world has bona free from cholera Chicago In'rr Urran, MEDICAL ETHICS.
