It consists of a rectangular chapel in the Gothic style of the thir teenth century, : built from the ruins of the celebrated abbey of Paraclete, of which Ableard was the founder and He loise the first abbess. The chapel. con- tains the sarcophages which Ableard him self caused to, be constructed before ills death. " He is represented in a recumbent posture ; by ides, the staf u of Helo- lse.

One of the daily papers, discussing the subject of defalcations, lays down these two propositions ; 1 f "There is no man who will, ultimately resist the temptation to use funds which are absolutely in his control for a long time; and in using them he does so with the'most honorable intentions, trusting to secrecy until he shall have paid back ev ery cent." Both ol! these statements are objection able, because they are notfounded iri truth. It would be in the highest degree discreditable to the human race, if the first proposition 'were truej and exceed ing dangerous to admit the justice of the second. JLet us look at them separately: 1. "There ia iio man who will ultimate ly resist tfie" temptation to use funds which are absolutely in his control for a longtime." Is that so? Then there are no honest men living; then we may not put confidence in anybody ; then charac acter is no basis for trust, and a defalca tion or robbery is but a question of time. Give any man time and opportunity and he will prove himself to be a villain. Now we do not take so sad a view of society as this. We hear in mind that in propor tion to the vast number of trusted men, the breaches of trust are very few.- In such a community as New York," Boston or Philadelphia, the number of men hav ing absolute control of large trusts, as executors, agents, guardians, trustees of estates and .minors, is to be counted by tens Snd hundreds of ' thousands. Scarce ly a man of position and character but is in some way made the trustee of money which he is to handle and guard for oth ers.: Some of these men are treasurers of great institutions, with large sums lying in their hands, subject to their individual direction, and at any moment they could "hypothecate securities, raise money, and on it depart out of the city, or speculate in stocks. This is the temptation which overcomes weak and wicked men. But to say that "no man will resist this temp tation" is to Ignore the fact that the im mense majority of men do resist; that the defaulters are only as one in a thou sand, miserable exceptions to the general rule, which js honesty, not robbery. The facts are bad enough, without making them worse by. exaggeration. We would not increase general distrust by impeach ing the many "who are entitled to the more confidence because others forfeit character and drown themselves in the perdition of dishonest 'men. Good men would shrink from' holding trusts, if it were held as a fact that all men will be tray their trusts with plenty of time and opportunity.. " k,., r H "f y f --- 2. 'BBfr-the second 'statement "is ' even more dangerous than the first. The one excites distrust, the second stimulates to crime. The writer says : - "In using them (trust funds) he' does so with the most honorable intentions,-trusting to secrecy until he shall have paid back every cent." The point we make is that the word hon orable in such a connection is unfortunate and injurious to good morals. The inten tion is itt the highest degree dishonorable. which .encourages trusteed to peril. . the money of another for his own advantage. The intention to restore is the salve to his conscience, or rather the mask that he Shears while he. robs shis innocent, unsus pecting and helpless victims."1 Honorable intentions, indeed! A man being entrust ed with the money of another says to him' self: "I will take this money and go up on the street with it and operate till I have doubled it; then I will put it hack where it now is and the trust will be as good as before. . I will be so much richer and nobody will know how it was done Is that honest? The trust was safe as it stood. Or it was where the law and his judgment directed him to place it. But he resolved to put it in peril for the sake Pstblic Opinion and Reform. Harpers Weekly. A reform in the system of the civil ser vice implies a reform of public opinion. Unhappily the abuses are now generally regarded as the essential elements of the service, and there is a mos ingenious so phistication upon the subject in many very intelligent .and hottest minds, v, The traditions and the practices of political parties' are hostiW to -the correction of abuses that help them, and , there is no great political change which demands W its friends more patience and toleVan'ce of inconsistencies and misunderstandings than a real reform. Vet, as we said a week or twoago,it.does not follow that "no progress .whatever is made because there are so many failures and disappointments; neither can it be assumed' that theVf is no sincere desireof reform in an Admistra tion wh ich does 'some Ah big's absol u tely incompatible with it. Few men are con sistently good, but virtue ft not therefore mere cant. An Administration is a com plex person, and all the circumstances must be 'carefully scanned and weighed before its conduct is condemned as heart less or treacherous. The enemies of reform and the loudest advocates of the present abuses and evils as a system practically adapted to human nature are the most stringent in their condemnation of the lapses of the friends of reform. Theyde mand an absolutely uncompromising vir tue, and when a bad appointment is made, or the principle is in any instance plain ly abandoned, they ask .whether it is not about time to renounce 4lsj the transpar ent cant of reform, and whether, since the ridiculous monster is now thoroughly dead,' it should 'not be summarily buried. This, like. calling an opponent an old woman, is not very powerful reasoning, nut it satisfies those who do not care to argue. The question of reform is not to be concluded by the action of an Admin istration, nor can the action of an Admin istration which has any convictions what ever upon tbe subject be disposed of by a sneer. The present Administration, with all short-comings granted, and with all the evident desertions of its .own principles, has nevertheless done good direct service by striking at some flagrant abuses, an A great indirect service by arousing public opinion to the. consideration of the whole subject. It seems to us, . therefore, that those who are in earnest, but who are pa tatient of human nature, and conscious of the extreme difficulties that must . now surround any Administration in dealing with this subject, will rather encourage amount of water to this residuum, we can at will produce sea-water again of any required temperature and in any place.. Such is the simple .'reason for life' , which Pitman's Sea-Salt gives to the public. Since its introduction it hafe' found favor In all quarters and steadily gained' repu tation and connuence. The greatest care is taken to produce the very best article. Its price places it fairly within the reach of all, and it can be bought; in such small quantities that the cost of a trial is insignificant. - i -: "' " " r ' ' ; - In reference to the remedial effects of this Salt . the .Jganitaiian of. September, 1876, under the heading of. "A Sea-Bath at Home;" said; ""We again avail our selves of the occasion to state, for the ben efit of children too feeble to be taken to the seashore-7-and for many' adults in like condition Ditman's Sea-Salt' eduied iu as an admirable adjunct for the promo tion of health. We have carefully in quired . into this preparation, and are gratified to find it entirely commendable, lrom its simplicity. It is nothing put pure Sea-salt, put up in portable packages, at a trifling expense, to meet the demands of those who, from a variety : of -reasons, cannot avail themselves of the" seashore, and we are glad to learn that1 the enter prise is meeting with the encouragement which it deserves." - - . In another issue it said :' "To promote the appetite, give tone' to the muscles,and increase the capability of enduring fa tigue few tonics equal the salt-bath,whlle for enfeebled, anaemic young women-and children and persons with cachetic taints it is one of the most valuable ..remedies known."- Ditman's Sea-salt supplies the very want of the age, presenting to eve ryone the pleasure of sea-bathing with out the . necessity: of a residence on the coast. Should be used in every nursery. Its wonderful strengthening powers are here exhibited to the best advantage and in the most striking manner. It relieves tender feet.

My nereis a specimen ei genuine green back literature. ; Jt is the production of an eminent statesman and original green backer, and though brief, covers the whole ground and gives the true inward ness of the question in its roost essential aspect : South Bend, Ind., July 13, '78 'MY dear SIR lour letter of yes terday, asking if I would accept the Na tional Greenback nomination for Con gress in this city, is just at hand.

To be frank with yon, nowever, i must auu mat, naving Deen a greenbacker from the outset, and having for long years vindicated greenbacks be fore the people, when many who now claim to be their special champions were deriding them and the sacred cause te sustain which they were issued, as well as predicting their ultimate worthless- ness, I am very naturally, an earnest ad herent still of the Republican party which authorized them, championed them, and has, by a .maintenance of the national faith and credit, brought them up in pur chasing value to an equivalent with the best dollar any nation can claim to have Yours truly, ' , . scuyL1.R Colfax - "Dr. M. M. Gordon, Francisvllle, Ind. ; mmm. . 'I A church in Chicago was scandalized recently by the efforts of a sewing ma chine man to make the congregation5 ah advertising medium. Just before church time he had a number, of fans placed in the pews.'; These fans were of the shut- up kind, and it was not until the people began to fan themselves that the dlscov- ry was' made that each fan was embellish ed with -a conspicuous advertisement of the sewing machine man's business. scheme which he formed for his own ad vantage at the hazard of the trust. The resolution was dishonest. The intention was no palliation, hut was a cloak for the crime, and, therefore, was in no sense honorable. The moment that he decided to violate his obligation as a trustee the man was lost. Having no better right to take that' money for his own use than he would have had if it were in the keeping of another, he was a thief at heart as soon as he determined on its appropriation." We are the more explicit on this point because it is just here that men deceive themselves, and are deceived, by such reasoning as we have cited. They vainly imagine that restoration atones for the appropriation of what was not their own ; as if it were a sufficient excuse for high way robbery that the robber intended to restore, and actually did restore, at some future time, the purse he took. The trus tee who misappropriates the funds in his hands is as much worse than a thief, as a thief is meaner than a robber ; the mean ness being greater as the risk of detection is diminished. These are times when this subject ought to be fully understood. It is well to set before the best ol men ' the dangers of temptation when facilities are so great, and the standard of morality is so fear fully low. So many have been the breach es of trust on the part of treasurers and directors and presidents, as well as of private trustees, that men have come to look upon these offences with a leniency that Is excedlngly unfavorable to public virtue. It is now very hard to make a "breach of trust" a crime punishable witli imprisonment. The "honorable in tendon" to restore palliates the sin and wipes out the shame in the eyes of a mo ney-getting generation. But it is not so in the sight of Him who seeth in secret It ought not to be so in the eye of the law, or of any good man. than disparage it for what it has noMone, or foj what it has done inconsistently. Thls-is true, althoilsh It' mavr' be f reel granted that such conduct is"notreform. It certainly is not.-," The Administration has certainly hot accomplished athorough reform of the civil service.,' ,. But . with equal certainty it has done much that be longs to 8uch'reform.,There is no radical reform, undoubtedly, so. long as what is done depends upon thr action of a single Administration, or the discretion of indi vidual officers. But any such officer who eendncte-tfee business confidod to him, in cluding the selection of JiiS subordinates solely upon business principles, and there fore totally disregarding politics, does very much to promote reform, although be andjhis methods quay be dismissed 'the next day. He "promotes reform 'by prov ing that a public office so managed se cures the most ethcient public servioe without the demoralization, jealousy, hostility, and interference with the free political action of the voters which neces sarily spring from the system which we are accustomed. The new Collector and Naval Officer of New York have said un equivocally that thejr intend to conduct their offices Upon business principles only. There is no good reason . to doubt their word, however hard they may find the task of making it good. , The more stren uously they resist the pressure to make it a political machine, the more efficiently and satisfactorily will they serve the pub lie, and the' more, practicable will they have made a reasonable reform of the svstem.

It" re mained for modern chemistry, however, to analyze the brine of "old ocean," and declare it to be of necessity both tonic and remedial, a conservator of health, and a corrective for disease. Consequent ly, the practice which oncewas resorted to rather, from force of instinct is now observed as a prerequisite of health and as a means of bracing the frame and in suring immunity from disease. The .waters of the, ocean are - found to be of an almost uniform saltness, the proportion of salt being 27 per centum, which gives about a pound of salt to ev ery four gallons of water. It should be borne in mind that besides salt chloride of sodium) sea-water contains other and very important ingredients, which are al most if not entirely missing in the brines produced by salt-wells and springs situ ated inland, fromwhich our supply of the various kinds of salt table salt and rock salt is mainly drawn. Among tiase other component parts of marine salt may be mentioned the sulphate and chloride of magnesia, the sulphates of lime and soda, and traces ot the chloride of potas sium and iodine. There is not one of these elements but which is an Important requisite in producing the exhilarating reaction enjoyed after a sea-bath. For children in delicate health and for elderly persons, suffering from obstruc tion of any of the functions, the sea-water bath is an invaluable tonic and correct ive; while for those in robust health nothing can be more confirmatory and luxurious. Unfortunately (or otherwise) the sandy beach, with its splendid opportunities for the most delightful of all recreations does not lie at every man's door; besides winter, with its storms and low tempera ture, forbids us the pleasure during many long, cold months. The ocean raalns the healthful and curative effects" of sea bathing are just as essential in drear De cember as in fervid Angust; bnt the im possibility of "realizing theiii amid the same surroundings is painfully apparent. It does 'no. follow, however, because of Natuee's interdict on open-air bathing during the cold (iionths or on aocountof distance from the 868-00881,' that we need be deprived of sea-water bathing. The Ingenuity of man has overcome far great er difficulties than furnishing sea-baths at our home. Sea-water by evaporation loses its great bulk. There aj-e left its living virtues- salt and the compounds that make sea- salt.

Jhp, subjects The emperance party in the Hpuse.prpposed a bill which authorized the restraint of the habitual drunkard against his will, ,:The compulsion was stricken out, and passed the Commons without an opposing, vote. It provides for the erection a,t private cost of retreats for the . victims of the habifc, and authorizes the forcible detention in them of any inebriate who" voluntarily applies for the benefit of . the seclusion;, It Is a law which enables a man, at a time when he coolly -estimates his peril and the power of the- appetite, to secure, a year of totaMnabiUtyratifv jt.The principle is not unknown in our own in ebriate asylum's,' an'd"'it offers the only practical chance of escape , to hosts who are by habit or congenitally enslaved by the appetite. It may ' well be doubted whether, if a year's abstinence will not break the bond, it can be broken at all except, by an indefinite continuance of the restraint. The Times speaks of a cynicism which is indifferent to all such enterprises be cause it feels that a man who has once fallen under the power of the habit be trays an- essential infirmity of will which makes radical reform improbable, and which of itself -should be a reason for withholding effort, since such men must always fee an inferior class. This is'dir'e- ful reasoning, for it would equally apply to the sick and the Infirm. It's a return to the old Spartan :barbasni of abandoning nfants to the elements. It takes care not only that the fittest shall survive,tut that the unfit shall not. Nor is 1t true. The appetite is not peculiar te an Inferior class of men, nor to men of weak wills. Undoubtedly, like all excesses, tt gradu ally weakens the will, biutdt is a tempta tion that besets some of the; best and ablest men. One of its fatalities, indeed, is its insidlouBiiess, so that the very men whom the law is meant to help -would cajole and sophisticate themselves to re fuse its benefits- ' ' There is one aspect of the subject of legislation to restrafiLdrn nkeniless which is significant. It is peculiar to tne JNortn ern and English-speaking races, in which the instiiict of personal liberty is strong est, and which constantly resists the leg islation. Dinking, it argues, is a per sonal matter. Nobody need intoxicate himself if he does, not choose to. If he does so, it is at his own risk. If it is his choice to ruin himself, we are very sorry. but it is his own affair. Some men do it by drink, others by extravagance, others by stupidity. Society cannot undertake to regulate the private conduct of its membersi 'When they interfere" with othj ers. tnev may re dealt witn, dui not oe- fore.. We might as well be called upon to prevent men's extravagance iu expense as their immoderation in drinking. This is the insttnctive'ieply of the Anglo-Saxon, as we call him, to the argument for com pulsory temperance." Buthe is answered upon his own ground. He is shown that drunkenness of others invades the equal rights of every man in the community by necessitatingenormous taxation to punish the disorder whiesi It tiroduoes. The An glo-Saxon common-sense, therefore, reg ulates the sale of liqr, and thereby re stricts the individual freedom of drink- Ino-. All subsequent restrictions, up to total nrohibition of the manufacture and of the consumption, is merely a question of expediency.

The amount of coin that Dan. has on deposit to his own credit hardly warrants such expansion as this." "What," asks a Democratic cotemporary 'has been proved by -Mr. Potter's com mittee?" This is an easy one. It has been proved that an effort was made to buv a Louisiana Elector for Tilden, and that the "spirit of mortal shouldn't be proud." ; The suppression of all freedom and fair ness of election, and the control of the State governments obtained by terror, in timidation violence, murder, and fraud, is vaunted in ears of the American people by the Democracy as "local self-goyern-ment." It would be just as reasonable to dei- maud that the United States should es tablish flouring mills and grind every body's grist, without taking toll, as to require that the Government should coin all the bullion brought to the mints with out charging seignorace. In its general sweep of the Southern States by its policy and terror, intimida tion, butchery, and violence, the Demo cratic party was partially and temporari ly estopped in the States of South Caro lina, Florida, and Louisiana. It has ever since been crying fraud. The New York Herald expresses itself on the subject of a third term. It is only consecutive terms the possibility of a President using his official power to re elect himself that it holds dangerous. After a President has retired to private life he can only be called to office again be cause the people wish it, and in such a re-election there would be nothing more objectionable than in an election for the first time. . Mr. Pottah is getting to be ashamed of his investigating job. His Democratic newspaper friends are beginning to ex plain that he is not responsible for all the grists that have been ground out of his perjury mill. Possibly the remark of the Cincinnati Gazette, that "Mr. Potter comes from a respectable family," may havearoused a spark of slumbering regard for bygone days, and he is accordingly preparing to return like the Prodigal Son to the home of his fathers.
