Money As a Curse or Blessing.
Those who achieve fortune rapid ly as a rule strew their way with wrongs and curses and misery. Great fortunes are rarelv honestlv made in the course of a single life. The niilliontrires of the world gen erally represent ruined homes, wrecked lives and thousands driven by despair to desperate deeds: And such fortunes are with rare excep tions curses to humanity, and at their door justly lies the fell spirit of communism and destruction which threatens the civilized world in this age of progress But for tunes made in legimate business hv industry, economy and good judg ment are generally blessings to hu manity. There is a minimum of wrong in their amassment. True, now and then a hard, cruel man thus succeeds and makes the world the worst for his living, but as v rule wealth achieved slowly and in legitimate ways is honestly achieved and leaves no sting and bitterness in its track. Serving as examples of the value of industry, economy and honesty, such men are encour agements and lights in the world. The lesson is obvious. The State, the church and society should dis courage by law, by precept and by example the amassment of colossal fortunes. By law in the uprooting of monopoly, in the protection of the masses against the fell spirit of speculation, in the forbiddance of subsidies and bounties and the abandonment of all policies that lead to the anticipation of progress and the developement of enterprise in advance of their need. By the church in practicing what it preach es, in condoning no sins or faults because of the power, in holding all her children equal before God as they are, in denouncing every form of gambling, in short by enforcing the moral law as well as teaching it, and denying her sacraments to the rich as well as to the poor who are undeserving. By society in esteem ing wealth only as it is honestly made, only as a good gift for good ends,respecting men, not for its pos session, but for the way they get it and how they use it, turning its back on the dishonest millionaire as a common thief and honoring char acter more and worshipping money less. Thus reform will begin at the foundation and build mightier than the pyramids and as eternal. Thus the evil and perilous tendencies of the times may be effectually checked. Thus may progress in material and mental elements go on hand in hand mutually blessing. This doctrine to take root early, should be taught our children at home, at school and in the church. Paint not the millionaires to their enraptured fancies, but the honest toilers in the legitimate fields of human progress, who succeed by deserving success. Teach them that a small fortune unstained with hu man tears more true happiness gives than a colossal one honeycomd with curses and black with human misery. A prayer to he effectual needs amen-ding. The world doughs every man the bread that he kneads. A corset is supposed to have great staying qualities. In this office, when a man falls in to the waste hasket, he drops into poetry. A young man sticking close to his girl an entire evening is a very nice kind of court-plaster. We are having a jawey-us time, said the man who was quarreling with his '-hetter-half." Cyclones are becoming so plenty out West that almost every poor family can afford one. "Oh, my!" exclaimed little Edith upon her first entrance into the rol ler skating rink. "They're all on casters, ain't they?" Offering candy to an elephant is like an offer of marriage to an old maid. She may turn up her nose, but she accepts it all the same. No, Laura, no; they do not "open the campaign with a can opener." j lhey do it with a corkscrew. How little, alas! do women know about politics. "Something ought to be done to keep our young men at home in the evening," says an exchange. True, it is a pity to see so much good ma terial going to waist.

The editorial page is vigorously and uncom promisingly republican: the news columns are as unbendingly independent. Much of the space of the weekly edition of The Republican will be given up to the news of the capital, but there will be in addition carefully selected stories and miscellaneous matter of general interest. Each issue will contain ! Foil and careful reports of the proceedings of congress when in session. ; Appointments by the president. j Executive messages, and all interesting news j from the executive departments. !

The Weekly Republican will con tain a vast amount of interesting reading for every citizen of the nation, which it. will give more fully and in greater variety than by any other paper in the country. It will be a paper which the readers of other weekly, and even daily, papers will feel they cannot afford to be without. It is a paper for the people, and will be found to be worth many times the price of subscription to the farmer, the me chanic, the railway man, the banker, the man ulacturer, the politician in fact to everybody.

About sixty million copies of Thk Sun have gone out of our establishment during the past twelve months. If you were to paste end to end all the col umns of all Tub ben printed aud sold last year you would get a continuous strip of interesting information, common sense wisdom, sound doctrine, and sane wit long enough to reach from Printing; House square to the top of Mount Copernicus in the moon, then back to Printing House square, and then three-quarters of the way back to the moon again. ButTHiSuxis written for the inhabitants of the earth; this same strip of intelligence would girdle the flobe twenty-seven or twenty-eight times. If every buyer of a copy of Tui Sun during the past year has spent only one hour orer it, and if his wife or his grandfather has spent another hour, this newspaper m 1863 has af forded the human race thirteen thousand years of steady reading:, night and day. It is only by little calculations like these that you can form any idea of the circulation of the most popular of American newspapers, or of its influence on the opinions and actions of America-' men and women. Thk St.'N is, and will continue to be, a news paper n hich tells the truth without foar of consequences, which gets at the facts no mat ter how much the process costs, which presents the news all orer tn world without waste of words and in the most readable shape, which is working with all its heart for the cause of honest government, and which therefore be lieves that the Republican party must go, and must go in this coming year of our Lord, 18s4.
