DOGS. Mr. Editor; Premisi g that 1 am not a rtdieal, that 1 have no desire to snbv rt time-honored customs or f- -ttie i -tu lish 'i u i itions, that 1 have an Instinet t r-f 1 - • I theories, mental prog -sos of refo m, I y t venture to suggest tint w liile the passion for constitutional change is on the country, it mig-it be well to secure one more a u iidmetit, t > the eff et that human beings, men, wo m n and children, shall, without respect to “race, color or previous condition of servitude,” be entitled t at 1 ;-t equal rights with dogs Now let not all the dogs at once howl at this! I only ask that we who are not <1 *gs may have an equal chance with those woo are dogs. I submit that the human race as well as the canine speci' s, i- indispensable to the well-being if sci -ty. and th;t t e protection and preservation of the former are not incomp itible with the highest in terests of civilization. I know that .logs are largely in the majority, and. that mi ler a popular g ivernm- ut, the majority mu-t rule; but I warn them tout, if they will rule, they must have something to govern; they must at least t : -rate the minority; oth rwise what will become of the subj cts of their sway ? I could wi-h there might be a -tat -of things, novel ami untried t ougli it be, m whieh a man passing a the dog tl road—a ; a decent and well bred man would—might be sure of getting bv with impunity, undiminished as to his "ant d,-.ns, mid unindented as to hi? flesh. Undt r such happy rireunistances, it would no longer he im practicable to take --fi'active me sures for sunp ring at gi . ■ kratum of this communitj —more dogs. It is obvious that wo ought to have more dogs There are s cue considerable spaces in this region, at pros- at not occupied by dogs. True most of our peo ple maintain one, and many of th ou several, of th interesting quad npeds; but there are a few narrow minded f >lks, who refuse to k-- -p even one, on the sordid plea that th -y have no ns.- f.r a dog; as if nv-rc utility was of tiie high t import, and life had no room for those aesthetic adjuncts which so b uiutify and en nobl*' it. Look at Paris! So long as her dogs ah u .11. she h Id out against the enemy; but when h r dogs h and nearly all disapp ■ ir and, th n sh ■ succumb oil. (la litis v■ rv mmif'st that we iv ed more dogs. With a little effort in this and rection, I am confident th.-.' ou”s would be the banner town for dogs, if it is not already entitled to that distinction. DOGGON’D. THE SPIdZ OF LIFE. BY RF.V. XV. R.

MORAL CCUxtAGE AND REFORM. BY REV. yv. I). BEN'KTI, OF SUPERIOR. £Fr m itie Pnlutu Mo: Call.] Any ignorant landsman may fold hi? arms and float out with tin 1 tide; only hardened and trained sinews can breast it. Any idiot cun roll down hill—his owe momentum will take him; hut it takes stead; nerve? and cool heads to scale the jagged cliff. So any man that has eyes and cais to ?ec and hear, and brains enough to think, can float with the world as it goes. It is . ot so easy, however, to lace, overcome or change great oei and currents. Reform and improvement means light, and successful tight demands sclf-poi-e and moral courage. Let us think a moment on human life, what it should be, what it is, and it.? great present want. I'he purpose for which every true man is placed in the wend i,-, to make it better by his living. His great duty is to unmid Ins own life, and correct the existing- Older ut things. Many reverse ihi? order, and one will not amend thevroyvn Ives demanding to held afOim 1 and another \y ill not disturb the e> isting order of things a- tar as correction is concerned. This, reversed order, create? a fear of disagreeable facts, a shrinking from the presence of truth as it concerns ou st lv s, iner as ing gradually into a tenor of all truth, and creating a love of glos.?cs, vails, and decorated lies. It also leads public men to cover up di-agreeable facts, gl.iss error, > filter truth, and compromise witli wrong to gain favor. | Why ure reforms -> slow? temperance reforms? s >cial reforms? clitneli reforms? national reforms ? i Because communities and society, public men, minis ters, journalists and statesmen, a e ton frequently moral Cowards. And what *xcu? for ibis? Who is to blame? The blame wif. in- found m ail tanks Society is to I tine fhe mas - ofl ing a reward for time serving, cringing servility, and pusillanimous flattery. If an editor or politician, expose a party of State cor ruption, every party hack, with a pack of cay ness at ms heals, commences war on the renegade, and reads him out of the party. Is sorn ■ local corruption expos ed, half the town is stopping subscriptions, withdraw ing advertisements, or threat mug to withhold votes. Churches are much to blame. Wealth and influ ence -teaks God's laws, and outrages morality min huk and; preaching that tickles the ear. plea- s tie fancy, and lulling the conscience, says -‘soul t ike tin case,” is at a premium ; wliile not unfreqncntlv prac tical truth, truth that hits error straight from the shoulder, is at a sad discount. Churches are found all over the land, that bid high for the minister that is on good terms with everybody, because he never punc tures a rotton -out and exposes us corruptions : but ik“y arc clamorous against him, who following in the footsteps of Christ, i x;.scs the purse-proud selfishness and • ■ ■ . es. Jour nalists are to blame. Many editors and essayists are found, who, not daring to mould opinion, parrot-like-, only er/io other m< n's ojiiuions, winking at partv corrup tions, blinkii gat popular vie •, and raising no cry of warning while thousand- are being hurried to untimcl graves by appetite and passion. Shameful betrayers I f a noble trust, such journalists deserve universal execration. ('talesmen are to blame. If they have not the self p ise and darug to hr.iv tie- ire of a party or a nation, fir tin right, and with steady m-rves. strike harder as the battle waxes hotter, compelling opinion out of its rut?; it they cringe md crawl to gain short-lived favor, they write their deeds in water, and record themselves a? trembling sycophants a ,and ?ervile dastards. Tin- ministry is 10 blame, and of all men should he the most de-pis and yv.icn they siiow moral cowardice. I’ney are the world’s moral h del s, and “if th** tium pets give an une riant sound, who shall prepare liitn - -if to the battle ?’’ Grant that it is hard to be oppo ?<-d, to lo- • tin* good wdl of m**n, to wage war on wealth and infla-iic-, and he tented with nip pularitr; I yet the minister e aims to fear God more than men, :o I ■ isn 1” i Mls i'.t that forbids compromise; Who proinis s to hr*w ■ around 1! ? seiv.iiit all the power of earth and heaven; ! W no tells him to expect all manner of evil, all kindsofi - ander and jieTsecution, yet comm ind? him to fear not, ! II ■ claims to be called of God, to trust Him and to te 1 inspired by LI m.

Tii re are thousands who put apr mam on independent thought. Tlier* are many noble, feat-j le-? journalists whose opinions are not in the market, i and who ar not sw i. al bv fear nor favor. Politicians : as a class are perhaps the greatest time servers, but! there are indications that even among them moral I co irage is slightly on the increase. There is a gro#-1 ing f. cling that the churches must have a more }>"&- ti e voice in -ill refoims, and the real culture and pi - tv of the Church arc seeing more the need of an out ?l>oken ministry, and a making a grand rally around an ind pendent pulpit—a pulpit that will not cringe to wrong anywhere. Yet it may be said that the one great need of tie hour is an inrreets• of moral courage. Corruptions are ever; win-re, in-ial corruptions 1 storing in all g:aces | of society.—political corruptions making politics a! moral cesspool,—national and r*-lu*ious corruptions R -forms arc to lx- instituted, error is to Lie dethroned, and only men of moral courage can do this—“ Men wiio know the tight, and knowing dare maintain.” The railroad? of Minnesota have not been imp ded a -■ ■ ow t present binter, while the rail road' of Ohio, Indiana, Hi >i-, and other States, were blockaded more than twenty four hours before the fiist snow fall in this St t An Indiana pedagogue, going to scl.ooi on a cold morning lately, found himsell locked out by a number of scholars who were inside.
