Tkxt Six days slmlt thou labor and do
all thy work. Exmltis xx, 9.
My fellow Men : This is the com
mand of God! It a part of the fourth
commandment in the moral code given
by God through Moses. In the bible,
the whole commandment reads thus:
" Verse 8. lienicmber the Sabbath
da to keep it holy."
" 9. Six days sbalt thou labor and
do all thy work."
" It). But the seventh is the Sab
bath of the Lord thy God; in it thou
sh'ilt not do any work, thou, nor thy
son, nor thy daughter, thy man servant,
nor thy maid servant, nor thy cattle,
nor the stranger that is within thy
11. For in six days the Lord made
the heaven and earth, the sea, and all
that in thorn is, and rested the seventh
day ; wherefore the Lord blessed the
Sabbath day and hallowed it."
By the preaching you generally hear,
you may have been led lo suppose that
this commandment make but a single
requisition upon you, and that is, to
' remember the Sabbath day and keep
it holy." But a little attention to the
language of the commandment must
satiny s titi, that in effect it is a double
commandment. It commands you to
work six days, just as imperatively as
to ret the seventh. Look at it :
" Kemember ihe Sabbath day to keep
' 30. Six davs shalt thou labor and
do al! thy work"."
How can a commandment be given
in more plain and imperative language?
"Six days shalt thou labor," not six
davs maye.-t thou labor not six days
mayesi thou spend in idleness and waste
thy lime in unproductive tolly. Six
diys shalt thou labor for the good of
thyself, thy country, and th- race; 1
exact from thee only one day out of
seven, but I command thee to labor
the other six for the subsistence, the
comfort, and the happiness of mankind.
That this is the meaning of the text
is clear, not only from its language, but
from its history. God himself worked
six davs before he rested one. " For
in six days the Lord made the heaven
and the earth, the sea, and all that in
them is, and rested the seventh." The
commandment is founded on this ex
ample set by the Creator himself. The
part of that example is six days' labor;
the res' on the seventh was but a con
sequence, lie commands man, there
fore, to do precisely what he did him
selfwork six days and rest on the
Long before this commandment was
i;iven, man was doomed to labor, as a
part of penality for his first transgres
sion. ' In the sweat of thy face shalt
thou eat bread," said God to Adam.
Gencis, v, 10, ' till thou return unto
the ground." And St. Paul said, long
afterwards, 2 Thessalonians, iii, 10,
" Tliis nc cumiiiaiij sou that if any
would not work, neither should he eat ''
This we find that man v. as doomed
to work ; that he was commanded to
work ; and that ho ought to have noth
ing to eat it he will not work.
" In the sweat of thv face shalt thou
eat bread," sabj God to Adam.
"Six days shalt thou htbor and do all
thy work," said God to Moses.
"Ho that will not work, neither
should he eat," said I'aul to the Thes
salonians. Our country is not wantinsr in
preachers of rest : but whjre are our
preachers of work? How many ser
mons have we upon man's duty lo rest
on the seventh day, but how few upon
his duty to work the other six? Yet,
it may well be doubted, whether more
moral evils do not flow from the work
ing part of this commandment than of
the resting part.- NT ay, do not gospel
preachers themselves promote disobe
dience when they lead off men and wo
men during the six days from their or
dinary occupations before they have
done all their work ? 'Six days shalt
thou labor and do all th- work." There
can be no escape from the command
until all the work bedone; and he who
advises man or woman to leave bis
work undone, even for pti poses most
praiseworthy under other circumstan
ces, counsels him to disobey a direct
command of the Almighty.
But the evil arising trom a breach of
the commandment under such circum
stances are but an atom compared with
those which spring Irom the efforts of
men to live without work.
Man is doomed and commanded to
work. The world is tilled with misery,
violence and crime, by perpetual ef
forts to escape his doom in defiance of
the command ! Would every man be
content to labor six days in seven, how
much better would be his health, how
much more happy his family, how much
more prosperous his country. For at
tempting to escape his doom, and for
bidamg defiance to the command of the
Almitrhtv. he is cursed in his health.
cursed in his family, and cursed in tho
troubles ol his country. Did the evils
fall upon tho individual transgressor
only, they would not bo so much to be
deplored ; but it is necessary for those
who live without work to get rheir sub
sistence out of the labor or others.
Humble and honest men, who, cheer
fully submitting to the doom of their
race and obeying tho command, are
content to work in their various avo
cations upon tho land and the sea eix
days in the week, are grievously taxed
ti. I'..n,l I I, a v.l.nl.. .. .... : . ... J ....
to teed tho rebels against God's au
thority who refuses to work. Grievous
impositions arc practiced upon the true
and obedient children of the Alniighty
lii as many ways as tne tirst great reNl
can invent. One put3 a crown upon
his bead and tells t hem he is author
thorized by God to dispose of their
property, labor and lives, according to
his own will. He takes their substance
to feed ami clothe himself and family,
his oilicei-8 and armies; he compels
them tosacrifico their lives in the con
quest or plunder of other countries tor
the gratification of his vengeance, am-'
bition, or avarice. Others deck their
heads with tiaras, coronets and stars,
and mak the people work to keep
them bright and feed and enrich the
haughty wearers. As the mass of man
kind advance in knowledge, it becomes
necessary to disguise under ingenius
contrivances the process by which the
products of their labor are taken from
them for the support and emolument of
those who refuse to work. The blas
phemy of claiming a right to govern
" by the grace of God," is no lonjrer
heard : but still the world has mon-
archs who " can do no wrong." One of
! these goes to war; the public "honor
and "safety" require that he shall have
nioney to tarry it on. Perhaps, not
being able or willing to raise enough
by taxation, be borrows a thousand
million of dollars, and then the " pub
lic faith" requires that the principal
and interest shall be paid. If lie bor
row so much that payment of the
principal becomes hopeless, yet, " pub
lic faith," takiuo the place of the " Di
vine right of Kings," from generation
to generation starves the families of
ib. se who obey heaven's command to
work six days in seven, for the sup
port of those who will not work at all !
We will not follow this chain of rea
soning, lest wc should seem to tread on
what may be considered ''holy ground."
But we beg our readers to consider,
how mui.li better would have been the
condition of our own country if all the
people had been content to obey the
command " Six days shalt thou labor
and do all thy work," insterd of re
sorting to so many expedients to live
without work. How many have lost
all they Lad and made themselves and
families miserable through life by specu
lations centered into for the purpose of
enabling them to live in idleness?
What but this caused the public dis
tress of which we hear so much?
What else has almost banished punctu
ality and moral honesty from the trans
actions of individuals and corpora
tions? What else has created such
bitter strife between man and man,
and generated the agitation, profliga
cy, and crime which now stalk abroad
in the land ?
Does any one suppose that human
legislation can cure the evils produced
by a violation of God's commands ?
Vain expectation ! If successful in
putting bread into the mouths. of those
who will not work, human law-makers
can effect it only by taking it out of
the mouths of those who do. It would
be relieving those who set at naught
me laws ot nature ana ol Uoit, at me
expense of the humble and honest men
who yield them a practical obedience.
There is better and more just mode of
relief. It is future obedience to God's
commands. Let every man hereafter,
instead of applying to the Legislature
of this State or to Congress for relief,
labor six days of tho wek, and do all
his work ! Misery will vanish like the
mists of tho morning, and complaint
will no more le heard m tho land.
Let the Legislature and Congress,
when asked to put bread into the
mouth td' idleness, say to the petition
ers as St. I'aul did to the Thessaloni
ans, first epistle, i, 11, 12.
' 1 1. And that ye study to be quiet,
and to work with your own hands, as
we commanded you."
" 12. That ye may walk honestly to
ward thtfin that are without, and that
ye may have lack of nothing."
And again, in his second epistle, iii,
' 10. For even when wo were with
you, this we commanded you that it
anv would not work, neither should he
1 1. For we hear that there are some

working not atall, but are busy bodies."
And let the preachers of the gospel
be advised to give more attention in
their preaching to the doctrine of work.
They may be assured, that one of the
best ways to persuade men to rest on
the seventh day, is to induce them to
work theothersix. Let them impress
upon their Jiearers their obligation to
keep tho commandment as a whole. It
is a double cord, and they cannot di
vide it withont weakening its binding
power and salutary effects.

THE LATE TERRIBLE VOLCANIC ERUPTION.
From the New Yort Rerald.
ItuMiLt'Li', Hawaii. April IS, J
Via San Imancxscu, May bib, lstfd.
The greatest volcanic eruption re
corded in modern times has occurred
on the island of Hawaii, one of the
group of Sandwich islands. For some
time pus' it had been observed that the
crater of Kilanea was very active, and
that a new volcano had been formed.
The volcano is the well known Manna
Loa, and it has an elevation of 13,758
feet. On the 27th of March last the
new eruption commenced, and has con
tinued up to the latest dates. During
twelve days there has been two thou
sand shocks of earthquake, followed by
fearful tidal waves, which have destroy
ed entire villages and caused the death
of one hundred persons.
For fifteen days the district of Kona
had been the center of motion for the
great eruption. A gigantic stream of
molten lava is flowing from the summit
of Mauna Loa across the lands of Ca
kuka and Poakini to the sea at Kaalu
ala landing. The slope and part of
the summit of a mountain, fifteen hun
dred feet high, have been lifted up
bodily by the earthquake and thrown
over the tops of treed tor a distance of
over one hundred feet. At Wahoine a
creek has opened, extending from the
sea. To as high as the eye can reach
on the slope of .Mauna Loa the lava is
from one to seven feet in width, and
an eruption of moist clay was thrown
from tlie side of the mountain, between
Lyman's and Kichardson's, a distance
of two miles and three quarters, with a
width of one mile, in the short space
of three minutes. This terrible erup
tion overwhelmed houses, persons and
hundreds of animals, and scattered
death and destruction wherever the
A column of smoke seven and four
fifths miles in altitude, was thrown out
of Mauna Loa, obscuring everything
for miles around, save where the bright
spiral pillars of fire flashed upward
from the mouth of the volcano. The
sight was one of the grandest, but
most appalling ever witnessed, and al
most deties description.
The inmtense tidal waves came rush
ing in with so great a height that liiey
swept over the tops of the cocoanut
trees on the Kona coast.
During the severest shock of earth
quake, which to'.k place on the 2d of
April, no living creature could stand
up for a moment. Immense bodies of
earth were tossed about a great dis
tances, a if they were leathers wafted
from one point by a storm of wind.
Not one stone stands upon another as
before in this district. Immense pre
cipices, which have hitherto been a
terror to all who have seen them, have
been levelled to tho earth, and w here
the ground was formerly smooth and
unbroken for miles around, the earth
has been rent asunder and upheaved,
forming gigantic chasms and precipices.
Tho entire topographical appearance
of tho country has been so coiiipit-ici.)

lived in the desolated district all their
lives cannot recognize it or point out

The loss of life, as far as can be as-

ter has been received. All of the un
fortunate persons who have lost their
lives were native IIawaiians,not a white
person being killed or in any way in
jured. Expeditions are being fitted out here
to relieve the distressed.
At the present moment the entire
group of islands is enveloped in a dense
black smoke, and tho indications are
that Mauna Loa is still in active vol
Since writing my last dispatch fur
ther intelligence has been received of
the great volcanic eruption. A vessel
has just arrived from Hawaii, bringing
later accounts of the lava flow, and of
the eruption in general.
Tho first stream of lava broke out
from tho crater of Mauna Loa, some
two miles above the residence of Cap
tain Robert Brown, and flowed directly
toward it. It came down the moun
tain side in a broad stream, several feet
in depth, and traveled with such rapid
ity that tho family in tho house had
barely time to escape, taking away
with 'hem nothing but their clothes.
Tho path which they took was perfect
ly free from lava; but ten minutes
after they had left it and reached a
point of safety, the entire road was
i....t.iC"4 witli tho flory ottt-tiui.
The lava pushed onward to the sea,
and drove the water back with such vi
olence that it became agitated and con
vulsed, and huge waves rolled down
the ocean as it lashed to tury by a
storm. The ground thus occupied is
now a mass of lava, forming a point for
at least ono mile in length ; and as the
stroam continues to descend the pro
bability is that it will remain station
ary and form a portion of the island.
The rarest terrible shock of earth
quake, which took plac on April 2,
burst open the earth at the village of
Waischina, and a tidal ware rushed in
ward with equal effect. It was over
fifty feet in height, and swept over tho
tops of the high cocoanut. trees, carry
ing death and destruction to persons
and property. Throughout the island
this shock was felt with fearful effect.
Buildings of all kinds were torn from
their foundations and burled great dis
tances, and many persons and animals
lost their lives.
The scene at the cratere was appall
ing. Hucre rocks were hurled from
their mouths, accompanied by streams
of lava, bot and red, which attained an
altitude of one thousand feet. When
it fell it rushed down the monntain to
ward the sea at tho rate of nearly ten
miles per hour. The new crater which
was formed on the 26th of March, is
over two miles in circumference,
vomited rock and broad streams ot
liquid fire which illuminated the night
for an area 01 over tiity mnes
In addition to the one mile of land
formed by the lava driving back the
sea, another stream, extending for a
distance of three miles, poured down
the mountain, striking the water with
a tremendous fLock. " At th: 3 tim an
other earthquake shock occurred, and
immediately after, an island, nearly
fouV hundred feet in hight. rose above
the ater and soon after joined to the
island of Hawaii by the stream of lava.
The eruption of moist red clay took
place duritg the great earthquake
shock, and went rushing across the
plain below for a distance of three
miles. From the midst of the crater
from whence this came, an immense
stream of water is now pouring down.
The entire section of country around
Mauna Loa has been desolated. A
stream of lava is flowing under the
ground six miles from the sea, and has
broken out in four places, each throw
ing up brilliant jets of tire. The base
of the volcano is about thirty miles in
circumference, and now presents a
most barren and desolate aspect, the
gases arising trorn the rent earth hav
ing completely destroyed all vegetation.
The earthquake shocks were felt in
all of the Sandwich I.slsnds, but only
around Mauna Loa was the effects dis
astrous. The eruption still continues with un
abated violence, and the scene w one of
the most terribly grand that has ever
been witnessed in modern times. From
Mauna Loa the huge column of smoke
continues to ascend, hiding from view
the skies and clouds, and enveloping
the entire country in partial darkness.
Every now and then thick streams of
lava shoot upward from the midst of
the smoke, illuminating everything in
a few minutes. Hundreds of jets of
flame bur-t from the lava, and are
thrown for a distance of a thousand ; owned exclusively by a few Cougress

The Union Pacific Railroad Company
has just made a statement of its busi
ness for the eight months ending with
December last, from which we extract
the following :
"Contracts for tlie construction of
Gl 4 miles west from I maha, comprising
much of the most difficult mountain
work, have been made with responsible
parties, who have already finished 540
miles, at the average rate of $6S,0.rS
per mile. This price includes all nec
essary car shops, depots, stations and
all other incidental building and also
locomotives, passenger, baggage and
freight cars, and other requisite rolling
stock, to an amouut that shall not b
less than S7,oUd per mile. Allowing
tho cost of the remaining lbG of tL
1,100 miles assumed to be built by tho
Union Pacific Company to be $i0 ,W0
per mile, the total cost of 1,100 miles
and equipment will 1-e Ss2,445,0I2
namely, 14 miles (at $G8,0.;) 02,205,
012, and lttj miles (at $90,000) 816,

making a total of S2,4 15,012. TLe

Uuited States bonds, 29,328,000 of
first mortgage bonds, SsojOO of capi

and 14,00,000 acres of land grant."
Here is a railroad of eleven hundred

How the People are Humbugged. In
the official reports to the President, by
the various departments, in December
iast, we find ti e estimated expenses ot
one or more branches of the Govern
ment to have been underrated by at
least seventy-five per cent. AY hen the
inadequacy of these appropriations was
pointed out to the reckless official spend
thrifts, the reply was: "We roust make
a fair show to the people and obtain
: the amount required in the dencienej
bills hereafter." Stanton estimated the
xv-r Department expenses for the year
! 165-6 a triile under S34.000.000. He
drew on the Treasury for 117,700.000.

Stanton as examples of American great

"We admit that Mr. Stanton and bis

great scale, but they lack the stamp ot
