Richard Blazer of Gallipolis died last week of yellow fever During the war he was Captain of the celebrated Blazer Scouts, and since the war he was twice elected Sheriff of G!lia county, and served in that office four year. A woman near Dyton Oliio. put some bed clothes on th. floor, in front of the stove, and placed upon ihem her bahy. nine months old She then went out to do some work, and when she came back, found the baby roasted to death. SwaiU, a South Carolina Republican who was nobbed by Democratic ruffi ms, for attending a Republican meeting, wrote to Wad- Elampfoo, acting Gov 01 South Carolina detailing hi trouble Hampton kincii5 referred him to the the South Carol iha Courts, for a nettle ment of his grievances 01 all the mur derous desperadoes in South Carolina. Hampton is the meanest and most t reach erous, or the signs of the times bear false witness It will be remembered that we gave an account last winter of Robert F Hurl butt, private Secretary of Gov Bishop Hurlbutt had a cancer on his tongue, caused by the poison of smoking Skill ful surgeons split bis jaw at the chin, separated the bones, and cut bis tongue out. He appeared to improve for a time, but the cancer developed in the jaw, and last week he died. This awful lesson will be entirely lost upon smokers A confirmed smoker will not only brave death sooner than stop smokiDg. but he would risk hell itself sooner than quit "From all over the county goes up the cry that the unblushing use of money, witnessed at the recent election, shall be stopped. Last Tuesday was the blackest day in the history of Adams county Men were marched to the polls, voted and paid for their votes in the presence of living witnesses." West Union Defender. "The same day was considered the blackest in the history of Vinton county The attempt to buy the votes of many people in this county for 'Horton and Victory' and for the Republican candi dates, was very plain." McArthur En quirer. And seeing such slanders upon Demo cratic voters, in nearly every low, one horse Democratic paper, is it any wonder that honest Democrats are, by the hund red, and the thousand, leaving the foul party ? A member of the Republican National Committee recently remarked in Wash ington, that he believed it to be the pur pose of the Democracy to wipe out free elections in this country No one who reads the news of the day, can doubt that the evidence of such intention on the part of the scouudrely Democracy is very strong. Senator Bck, iti a recent speech, in Kentucky, is said to have openly advo cated such a scheme, by claiming that the Democratic House should throw oat the 'Republican ( ongressmen-eltct. win-i ever Deojoci aU could be found who were willing to brave public opinion, and claim their seal-. The signs of the timea all point to such tt " rub or ruin" determ ination on the put the rebel Democ racy. So long a- Clerk Adams is permit ted to run the country they are willing that we should go through the forms of holding elections But, unless the De mocracy can retain power, they are wtJl ing to destroy every semblance of free elections and constitutional liberty Let every thinking voter make a note of these things. That wonderful woman, Gail Hamilton, closes one of her able articles upon Civil Service Reform, in the N. Y. Tribune, in the following noble and prophetic words : "The attempt to make Civil Service Reform a political issue is a disastrous failure. Political issues are not made They are. Prodigious efforts have been put torth to lift this into vitality and na tionality, but it is flat and flabby, a scoff and a by-word. There is an issue which is vital. A great crowd of witnesses have agreed that it is dead. It was stabbed in the house of its friends. A multitude of public men, of political writers, of mer chant princes the rich, the religious, the literary, clergymen, professors, poets stood by consenting unto its death They buried it safe and deep. They trimmed the turf o . er it snug and smooth. Tbey feasted on the tuneral baked meats. They raged against the few men here and there who protested against their deed They resolved and proclaimed and exult ed that it was dead. But it was not dead It was buried, but it was buried alive. The pipings of peace and festivity above it have not been able to smother the sounds of dole and drear that ever and anon come up from that cruel grave. And assure as there is a God in Heaven who rules among the nations, we are drawing on to a swift and stern resurrection "Gail Hamilton-." We continue the extracts from the great article in the Atlantic Monthly, "Certain Dangerous Tendencies in Amer ican Life :" . 9 "This leads me to consider the relig ious and moral character and equipment which our people possessed fifteen years ago, and the effect of the new conditions upon these factors of our national lite The nominal faith or religion of the country was what is called evangelical Protestantism. Its early creeds and sym bols were still unchanged ; but the real religion of the people wa9 already, to a great extent, a decorous worldliness. The formal observances of religion de pended largely upon habit; that is, the religious activities ol our people had long bee 1 chiefly the momentum remaining from old impulses, from influxes or evo lutions of moral or spiritual force which had inspired men in former times, and had then produced an earnestness and self-denial ol which even the tradition was mostly lost The force which re mained was constantly diminishing. The moral impulse received onn before had mostly passed into structure, bad pro duced very nearly its full effect upon the character of men and the forms of life in society; and by a well known law, which appears in the working of all forces of whatever nature, the power that had thus been embodied could not be used again in the same form. There was no longer any considerable influx or evolu t.ir..i rf new religious oower or vitality. Manv ministers and multitudes of the more intelligent mf-moers OI tne cuuruu- 0 . I had become skeptical in re guru iu s,,,, of the cardinal doctrines of the yoyuUr Christianity. Tbene doctrines were, in the preaching ol the time, U"1 ually so softened and accomm'' u,t the growing doubt that p- ated to original meaninir . a ly JI their A Vague feelinu explained aivay had for so- - of alarm and U"cei taintv port'' oif pervaded t he more earnest ,.n of the church. a iistt ust n ten dencies which yet seemed neeessarv and irresistible Preaching became more and more speculative and rationalistic Ev erywhere it almost ceased to deal with morals or duty It lost all ed(e, all di rectness of application to the real que tions nnd interests of human life in this world It was no longer addressed to the conscience, but to the taste, to the set bet ic judgment The sweep of the new tim carried us out ot the region and condi tions in which it had been the (unci ion of the pulpit to rebuke the sin ot men to quicken and reintoice their con-cien ces by faithful teaching ot the nigral requirements of Christianity. The effect of the new hunger for wealth and display extended to religion and its organic activities The new tide ot worllliness rose everywhere, and submerged to a great extent a church which it found open and without defence against the flood. The conditions ot lile, the tempt ations and enticements, were new The allurements to aveed and dishonesty were appallingly strong. The religious people ot the country in general had no adequate training or moral discipline to prepare them to 'ace the new !..fs ') he church failed to meet th needs ot the time. Sbe did vasily better than those who did nothing, than many ot her erit ics. But that was not enough The disintegration of religion ha- pro ceeded rapidly. There are now several features ot our national religious lite and thought which must be noted in anv real study ot our present condition N. one statement or athi-mation can he rnaae to include all the truth The religion of our country cannot hestudied adequately or successfully in the churches of the large cities alone What of the people in the smaller towns, the villages, and country neighboi hoods ? What is their religion? The church is now, for the most part, a depository of social rather than of religmu influences Its chiet force or vitality is no longer religious There are still, of course, many truly re ligious people in the churches, who sin cerely believe the old doctrines embodied in all the creeds. But these are every where a small minority, and they are mournfully conscious tbat the old relig ious life and power have departed from the church. They distrust the methods of the modern revivalism, and do not feel at home among the younger members ol the church, with their advanced views and fashionable, thorough going worldli ness They are alarmed to find the at mosphere and tone ot the church becom ing more and more secular and business like. These people, who thus represent the better elements ot a former state ot things, are the real strength ot the evan gelical Protestant churches, so far as religion is concerned, and their character is one ol the most wholesome and truly conservative forces ot our nations! lite They are not liberal in their views, but they are sincere Tbey live pure and good lives. They speak the truth, a tare virtue now, and they can he trusted witn anybody's money Tbey will do what they believe to he right, though all men deride or oppose, and at any cost to themselves in business or worldly inter ests. But they are too few to regenerate the American church, though their influ euce is highly valuable in resisting some of the evil tendencies of the age. Most of them are old, and they have few sue cessors among the younger people They have already done most of their work, and their number and strength diminish from year to year "For a very large class of which we may next speak the chutch iurnishes oppor tunity tor a pleasant social lile. which is in no way different from the social life of amiable, intelligent people out of the church; that is there is nothing distinc ively religious about it For this class all the barriers and distinctions between the etiurch and the world have been remov ed Church work is tor them, in all its torms, a kind ot sacred amusement Pub lie worship, with its pulpit oratory and modern church music, is an re thetic en lei tainment They have developed a religion which is not religious Tti-v have learned ho 10 be ''hi 1 t,- ins .' cording to their meaning i Imui w1 denial, or any abridgment of ihe ple-s ures, pursuit-, or ambition'- of people who acknowledge no religious obligations They are the most intelligent members of the popular churches of this country They are decorously moral, conforming to the easy, worldly criterion ot people ot like social position Tbey are nearly all able to live comfortably, possessing the necessaries of lite and a few of its luxu ries.

In tbem the religion popularly professed has spent its force, and they can contribute little to aid in the moral regeneration 01 me country l ney are almost destitute ol moral insight, and have little confidence in principles, trust ing entirely to management, to policy and to present success. "Their ministers ate men of intelligence and ot considerable culture They be lieve even less than their people of the doctrines of their creeds. Tbey general ly avoid doctrinal subjects in preaching, and have lor some years based their teachingmostly upon utilitarian grounds They have for themselves accepted ra tionalists beliefs far in advance of what they teach, and consider themselves en gaged in a most necessary and uselul work, that of leading the people gradu ally onward in thought and knowledge by carefully giving them the truth as they are able to bear it. Their caution is extreme, and they thus sacrifice what ever strength may belong to courage and outspoken sincerity Their teaching is tar less advanced and rationalistic than the habitual thought of their hearers. They do not understand the real tenden cies of the time, lacking the insight and the synthetic judgment which result from independent search for truth, and from heartiness of conviction They greatly overrate the success of their system of repression, of keeping back most of what they themselves believe. It fosters skepticism, and spreads distrust of all moral and religious verity, as the people are aware that their ministers practice the concealment of their real beliefs. Their preaching is usually far more in tellectual than formerly, but is not based on the creeds, nor on any announced or coherent philosophy, fragments of bos tile systems of thought often appearing in amiable proximity, if not in any real relation, to each other. There is nobody to criticise the preaching of these cleigy men. Their teaching is otten curiously remote from all the practical concerns and conditions of life in our time and country, and is almost entirely destitute of moral authority and power. They re gard the general engagement of their people in the work of charity organiza tions as evidence 01 tne triumpnant. vi tality of Christianity in our age; which io mm., an ..

THE SUN will be printed everyday during the yar lo come. Ilspurpose and method will be the same as in the pasl : I'o present all the ners in a readable shitpe, and to tell the truth though the lii av.-ns lull THE SUN has been, is, and will continue to be independent of everybody and everything save tiie Trulh and its own convictions of duty. That is th.- only policy which an honest news paper need have. That is the policy which has won for this newspaper the confidence and friendship of a wider constituency than was ever enjoven oy any oiuer American journal. TH K SUN is the newspaper lor the people. It is not for the rich man against the poor man, or for th- poor man against tbe rich man, but it seeks to do equal justice to all interests in the community. It is not the organ of any pel-son, class, sect or party, mere need oe no mysiery about its loves and hates. It is for the honest Democrat as against tne dishonest Re publican, and for the honest Republican as against the dishonest Democrat. It does not take its cue from the utteran. es of any politi cian or political organization. It gives its sup port unreservedly when men or measures are in agreement wilh the Constitution and witti the principles upon which Ihis Republic was founded tor the people. Whenever the Consti tution and constitutional principles are violat ed as in the outrageous conspiracy ol 1876, by which a man not elected was placed in tbe President's office, where he still remains it speaks out. for the right. That is THE SUN'S idea of independence. In this respect there will be no change in its programme for 1879. THE SUN has fairly earned the hearty hatred of rascals, frauds, and humbugs of nil sorts and sizes. It hopes i o deserve that hatred not less in ihe year 1879, than in 1878. 1877, or any year pone by. THE SUN will continue to shine on the wicked with unmitigated brightness. While the lessons of the past should tie con stantly kept before the people. THE SUN does not proposi to make itself in 1879 a magaziue of ancient history. It is primed for the men and women ol to day, whose concern is chiefly wilh the affairs of to-day. It has both the disposi tion and the ability to afford its readers l he promptest, fullest, and most accurate intelli gence of whatever in the wide world is won h attention. To this eud the resources belonging to well-established prosperity will be liberally employed. The present disjointed condition of parties in this country, and the uncertainty of the future, lend an extrnordinarv significance to the events of the coming year. The discussions of the press, the debates and acts of Congress, and the movements of Ihe leaders in every section of the Republic will have a direct bearing on the Presidential election of lhSO an event which must be regarded with the most anxious interest by every patriotic American, whatever his political ideas or allegiance. To these ele ments of interest may be added the probability that the Democrats will control both houses of Coneress, the increasing feebleness of the fraud ulent Administration, and ihe spread and strengthening everywhere of a healthy abhor rence of fraud in any form. To present with accuracy and clearness the exact situation in each of its varying phases, and to expound, ac cording to its well-known methods, the princl pies that should guide us through the labyrinth will be an important part of THE SUN'S work for 1879. We have the means of making TIIE SUN, as a political, a literary and a geueial newspaper, more entertaiuing and more useful than evei before; and we mean to apply them treely.

Yellow Dock with the Iodides of Potassium and Iron, and is the most efficacious medicine yet known for the diseases it is intended to cure. Its ingredients are so skilfully com bined, that the full alterative effect of each is assured, and while it is so mild as to be harmless even to children, it is still so effectual as to purge out from the system those imparities and corruptions which develop into loathsome disease. The reputation it enjoys is derived from its cures, and the confidence which prominent physicians all over the coun try repose in it, prove their experience of its usefulness. Certificates attesting its virtues have accumulated, and are constantly being received, and as many of these cases are publicly known, they furnish convincing evidence of the superiority of this Sar saparilla over every other alterative medicine. So generally is its superi ority to any other medicine known, that we need do no more than to assure the public that the best qualities it lias ever possessed are strictly maintained.
