These are certainly great evil, requiring; aom prompt and afflcient remedy. But to decld oa the right remedy the physician must first make a diagnosis of the case. Are not these fluctuations merely the symptom or effecU behind which we must loojc fur the seat or came of the disease? M. U also. In his history of civilisation, says: "The struggle of rlesse constitutes lb very fart of modern history, which Is fall of IL Modern Europe, indeed, 1 brn of thi struggle between the different 'classes of so ciety, IM strnggie goes on here a well a In Europe. Mr. Clew recognises th fact, when, 00 the fifteenth pge of hie pamphlet, ho divide toclety Into the lending aud the borrowing clause. One of the main feature of modern society 1 th substitution of aubtle and artful fiscal contrivance forth brute force of the middle age. Now, In the place of feudal lords. armd with lance and battl axe. selling and carrying off th property of their neighbor. wa nave money lorue ana dbuk princes, armed with therxrwerto reirulale the rata of money, (to make It dear by increasing the rate f Interest when Uiey want to buy, and cheap by lowering the rate of Interest when they want to aelL) doing practically the same thing to their neighbor. sPMxiog 01 in is power, a 11 existed 10 tne banking ayctem In lt7, Mr. Calhoun aaldi "Never waa an engine Invented better calcu lated to place the destiny of the many In the hands of the few, or lea favorable to that equality and Independence which lie at the bot tom of our f re institutions. Mr. Clew show that In the last fire year this mischievous power has bern Intensified tenfold. The Constitution civs to Coddtsp the fswer to coin money and regulate Tu yalne. hi grant of power earrlea with It a duty to discharge the truat falthfnllr for the equal benefit of all classes and of all section ( th country.

To be cheap It must le abundant. It nse a th measure of value rcmlre that lu own valne should be stable. It Is therefore th datr of Con gress to regulate lu value and prevent, a far as practicaoi, inns wia nncination so graphically described by Mr. Claws. jias uonrrras succeeaeu in awrnarging these duties? Far from It. Hv the svstain prevailing for the 'last five years," Congreaa ha practically transferred It power aud It duty to regulate the valne of money, to a l'plT11ege6caa. inb'ert only lo such slight fitralnu as are lnterpoaod for the protection of th other classes of oIety by the Inade quate usury taw of th State and tb occa sional Interference of the Secretary of the Treasury to "break a corner" In the money markeU by the aal of gold or purchase of bonds. Will the measure suggested by Mr. Clew rented r or ainrrarate our monetary evils? That depend on whether they will diminish or Increase the power of the "privileged class to cause fluctuation In the value of money. Dot, on their very face, his second measure propoea to increase tneir power to produce periodical Inflations; the third pro poses some effectlve arrangemeuU" whereby periodical contractions shall b mad to fol low close upon the heal of perl odlcal Infla tion, and the fourth propoec to uturly abolish all legal lmpedlmeau to thtlr putting Interest, which la the measure of the value of money, a high or as low as their own ad vantage may dictate when they may wish to buy or ta sell the wheat crop of the North and West, the rottoa of the South, or any other property. Mr. Clew argument In favor of the utter abolition of the usury lawa la able and adroit, but It will not bear examination. II says that "the whole history of usury legislation prove that do law can be dvlsed which will f invent a large das of lender from obtain ng whatever the,r money may be worth to borrower. Granted. But the whole history of criminal legislation provee that no law can be davlsed which will prevent a larg class from committing theft, forgery, arson, mur der. I that a sufilctant reason for the utter abolition of all lawa against theft, forgery, arson, murder? Surely not. On the con trary. It Is an argument In favor of more effective and stringent law for their sup pression. Mr, Claw say 1 "In th nature of thing there I no mora rea son for Government to regulate the loanable value of money than there la for it to fix a maxi mum value upon th various kinds of merchan dise. Tb value of the on necessarily varies a much and as frequently aa that of tb other; aud It would be a safe to leave supply and demand regulate the market valne of loan as It is to leave the price of goods to such regulation. This Is inconsistent with the first part of his argument, where he ahow that the re sults of varying rate of Intereat on loan of money are 'to obstruct the production and marketing of the crops; to mbarras the produce merclianU and farmers of the West, and the cotton merchants and planters of th South, the storekeepers, the Interior Jobbers and the country merrnanu; to Injure the mercantile lnteresu of the seaboard, the manufacturer and mcrahanU; to produce airop of failures toward the close f th year; to place the Western (and, he might bare added, Southern) lnteresu at the mrcy of the Eastern, and tdo 'especial Injury to the farming classes. " The argument doea not hold together. If the premises b true, the conclusion, must b erroneous, and vice versa. In the uatur of thing there U a very es sential difference between money aud the va rious kinds of merchandise. Money Is the measure of th values of property, a tb yard stick and the bushel are the measure of quantities. But mouey la a thing ru. generi$ and In lu nature differs aven from weight and measures, so far that the production of the latter tu conformity to a standard fixed by Government may well l left free to private enterprise while the creation of money tn, by common consent, acknowledged ta be the exclusive attribute of Government. Y hlle money Is the measure of the valne of property the rate of Interest t the measure of the value of money. A high rate of In terest parallze every honest Industry. A fluctuating rate Is destructive; It product Is "a crop of failures," at Mr. Claws himself says.

Let this fid of December be for ever an anniversary dsy among the deceudanu of the Pltgrtme. cut sun greater wonio ne tne anniversary 01 th Saviour's advent, and infinitely far-reachtng la hla Influence ou the civil lnteresu of men. We ara not certain nf th nreelaa riit aaia. brate, since the Greek Church have the tth of January, th Komlah Church th uth of Daceat- orr, ami ue ODiy astronomical expianaitoo or "the star In the East, aa given by Kepler, would place the saviour's birthday a earty aa October, with many collateral proofs agreeing therewith. Still the annual commemoration nf Th hlrth nf Christ rasybe observed with profit if sacrilege and sensuality on the one hand and superstition on the other be scrupulously avoided. Here the speaker turned attention from the day to the divine Influence of th Redeemer1 auveni upon tne civu nisiory 01 man 1 I. The history of civilization concliely given affords abundant proofs of th Saviour? super human power. Civilization is not easilv defined, and fbriatlan civilization la yet in It youth. The term civiliza tion Impllea a constant Improvement In civil life. Iu office U to change the treacherous savage to the true civilian, and make hla ueaxt neat outwaru inrougn an ine arteries or the body politic. It uke an Ignorant, lonely man, with hla few wanu and leas means, with Ms crude Ideas and those contradictory, with his feelings aelflah and uncivil, and unites bis lnteresu with thoae of other men till his Ideas are made public, his feeling patriotic, hu thoughu free, hi deelrea enlarged, hla meana multiplied and his wanu met. 1 bis is the Idea of civilization. It ba never yet been fully realised; human wlckedneas and weakness are both lo th way. M c cannot tell where civilisa tion tgan. Horn say In Asia, others affirm that Africa may lie regarded as IU earliest home, no cisMincauoa 01 11 can necomp civilized, civilized and enlightened race hav all evinced a nreet aoclal want, which nothlna but the life And teaching of the Bon of God could aapply; and to t efficacious, he mast be identified with the race, a aiao "the Son of Men." Before hla Incarnation among men, however, It was necessary that various tvoeaof national civilization ahould be developed in different centrea and then combined on virgin soil, and then Infused with th Christian spirit and spread over all tbe world. The beat type of ancient civilization was un doubtedly in thellehrewoommonwesltb. A rich rein of humanity pervade all tbe Mosaic laws, which tended to mitigate and then remove tbe social evil brought into It from urroundln; pagan Hutea, The Egyptian and all eastern typeaof civil life were centrallzod Into one by Alexander, whoae empire Included all the then civilized world; but therein were the moat cruel systems of oppression ever known in the history of man. When Demoathenea waa addressing a few thousands of free Athenians agalnat the tyrant Alexander, there were four hundred thousand slaves In the Athenian provinces, whoae Uvea were at any moment subject to a it any ita. In democracy of despol Lacedemonla, when safety, the vouna: Spartans were authoi murder them for mlliUry exercise. The several mllllonaof alavea were everywhere lathe moat abject condition of serrltudo and peril. The retnouuonaoi justice eeemea lorxedupin the srchlvee of eternity, and no human eye pitied them nor arm offered he In. Nona of tha irreat phlloaopbera and statesmen whom w admire o much wera moved to compassion by what he aaw, or recorded a thought of "breaklug every yoke and letting the oppressed go free? The whole civil xed world wa in tb most distressing auviai buu uiura want. "Tb fullness of time" had coma for tha In. carnation of our Lord and th infusion of hi divine life and lore into the civil, social and per sonal affairs or men. By this time, however, the prophetic woes bad settled down upon Africa and Alia and Europe, became the scan of cen tralized action. 1 fa Roman empire received tbe Eaat and the Weat and constituted the second civilized world; but unmitigated slavery still abounded. One Roman citizen might own ten or twenty thousand slaves, and sixty million men were new in dodos witoin m empire a nounaa, and when a master waa murdered bv hla men. Tacitus telU us, ail his servanu were put to uvain ior nia ease, "accoruiug.io eauuuaueu usage." Against tbeae atrocities the entire Christian system stood arrayed, and the first Christian emperor of Rome Issued edlcu for the gradual emanclnatlon of all slaves within tha realm.

An a uen bible U essential to eecure these. Hence the. Importance of the Protestant ascen dancy opoto our Boll. Had the Papal French and Spanish civilizations met in the Mississippi val ley and held the ground, our grand republic could not have been.

These evils are obviated by tb uiiui,iiicui iui iiiiaruu iBLnvra auu iae laiuuui teachings of tbe Saviour's golden rule.
