Tub KepublioaiH of Maryland are ivmklnc a most vigorous light. The an tiquated Deniociatie niavliina f-qucakg al the ordeal ll Is going through. Tho. out look for thu Republicans Is said to be dcoUU'dly chcuring. Tin: day of postal reforms, It seems lias not gone by. I'lvc more innova tions nio talked about, viz : postal tclegrapliv, postal savinj-s banks, mon ey orders for S5 at eeiits, a uniform 1 cent rato for drop letter, and the .rAl-lnu of thu limit of weight lor single ,rato letters to niiu outiec. Thuro Is a good dual to bo said in favor of eaeh of thesu changes, while tho last three can, perhaps, bo silely adopted without mueh ado. Most hitters Weigh loss than half an ounoe, so that an ounee limit, which would do away with eer tn'.n hnrdrhips, wold not seriously af tcct the levcnuo. A 1-eent rate f. r ..drop Jullers in eittes would place ear rler oflkes on thu same plan as those without arnu. This would bo well enough, though It need not be insisted on if serious objections are raised. As to tho money order rate, orders for 85 pught unquestionable to bu Issued for 5 cent''. Tub Sedalla Democrat liiadverti ntly suggests that the clti.ens of Mi-snuii who fought four years I'oriheirUe mocruey as Union soldiers" should havo , equal iceocnition in the dlstiibutlon of tho State's olViees with "their comrades who came out of thu brush in 1870." It is qultu evident that thu Democrat docs not undun.tand the temper of its paity in this latitude. Missouri Democracy is thoroughly saturated w ith Hie idea that giving oflkcB to men who went aain we-uns" during tlio war is a bad and .inexpedient thing. Occasionally onu of tbetn ' is so honored merely lor eflcct, and in epito of his offunsivo Union vec- ord. but it does not linppon oiien enough to altrnet general attention.

My Julius Kosllln. 9.1.011, lTiimdulpIihi: Lutliornn 1'ubHcatiou Society. Nothing is more characteristic of this age, than Its proncness to tcengui.o all merit in the past or the present. In deed, ll seems to bo lino that there never was a tltuo when so much could bo inn du of so littlo as now. Ami, of tho two extremes, one would prol'er an over appreciation, 10 a sevcro rejec tion of what must iluuliy be tie uowlcdg cd and honored. It Is better that we should bo the dupes of many a quack, than that wo should sutler one earnest and gentiino lo go unrecognized; "better Ihat many n villain should go unhung than that onu just man should suffer," says tho old proverb. Especially Is this Iruo of men of letters. A life dovotcd to let ters is, In nearly every instances, cue of sacrillco, trial, and hard toil. There are few sadder subjects to contemplate than that of tho literary genius burden ed with tho mcssago ho daro not fail to dellvor.yct urging deaf or scornful cars, until, nt last,. his missiouoiided, ho lays him down In Borrow nd disappoint ment, if not in want, for future genera tions to ptalso and worthip. Such things havo como to pass In years gone by,nml it U well If wo have learned the lesson of ltomagp.evun though it often bo bestow ed indiscriminately or unwisely. Tho fact Is an ovidenco (hat wo have gono a step forward. Tho tendency Is now,to resuncct our great and neglected tlead, crown them with tho laurels they would so much have prized wliilo living, and pour into dumb, indifferent cars the ad ulation and affection that wero so strange to them wliilo hero. Tho great, tho good and uoblo aro finding heralds to proclaim their excellences, or en thusiastic followers who spnro no pains 111 exhuming thu treasures too long over looked. Although it can not bo said ol Martin Luther that he died ignored or neglected, yet it is truo lie did not pass for what he was, neither was he so re ceived. It has taken four hundred years for the world to get tho proper focal dis tance upon him so that he can bo meas ured or weighed as to tho great pail he had 111 the present condition of things; itsf, also, it litis required four centuries to produce a biographer of him: such an one as could furnish us with a complete view of Luther, his inward li le as well as his outward dramatic il eds. Such a biographer is Uorr Kostlln who in a vol umo of GOO pages leaves nothing to bo desired. Tho book is well translated from tho Gurtnan by Prof. J. G. Morris with a number ol able, assistants of his own selection. Luther was born in an obsctuo part of Germany, Nov. 10th 1-1 8:5. His parents weio peasants, but there was such promise in their olde.-t son, that they did not hesitate to give him eycry opportunity their means al lowed. Martin's father had great con fidence in him, and was sorely grieved when ho found his con determined to enter thu cloister. Tho episode of Luth er's f 1 lend being killed by lightning at his side, is mythical, as well as many other incidents reported of Ids life. Hu was a thoughtful, earnest youth, and it is highly probable some similar circuin stanco ii), y havo awakened in him a train of thought which led to his reso lution U j lead a monastic life. When there n$ery and wiutehedncs lill-d him he-u;vas weighed upon with ills contontlitnd anxiety. Tho discovery of tho lliblt, and tho htudy of It winch fol lowed iirought pcaco.

Tints his appointment to a prolcssotvhlp in Wittenberg University caitio about. Hero ho had an opportu nity of mnklng n more intimato ac quaintance with tho Fopo. While Luther was zealous, positive and resolute to thV lust degico, ho was iuodc.t and tin Uoustrntlvo, and would never havo wed tho remnrkablo part hu did, had vbot bocn forced noon him from witli- J and from without His daring cour Lo in his dealing witli tho l'opo,is woll jiiown.

Hu lived in an ago of superstition ; and, by his acts, was continually shocking the superstitions. However, ha was not devoid of it, but it was reduced to a minimum. Ho was violent as all strong, foroiblo characters are, not as a despot or a raging wild beast. It is probablo if ho had been called coarse or regular 111 tho prcsonco of thoso who knuw him, hoy would havo surveyed witli wonder tho strango and lastiditlous critic So many foolish judgements aro mado of jersonago8 of tho past, an if tho Inpso ll centuries hnd mado no cliungo I A L'iminal is not tried by the laws of tho middle Ages; neither should wo resur rect tho ancients to nieasuro them by ur notions.

Wo havo jiifrt received this tliol.cst compilation of tho School Law of the state that wo have examined. Tho ar rangement ot School' Law In general and of thu provisions of the Constitution in relation to Schools is well executed. Under each section there Is collected lu a note tho decisions of the supremo court which is also woll dojio. The lorms for teachers and school olllcers arc In uvcry way suited to supply all wants In relation to school meeting, proceedings thereof, clumgo of districts, contracts etc. Thero is also a "Programme for Country Schools" which, if the teacher is far enough advanced in suho)l work, will afford him great assistance. Within itself It Is an excellent prograninio for nearly any emergency; yot 111 tho hands of tho elllcient teacher ll will prove a valtublo aid under all circumstances. When 0110 fails to seo in each school room sonio wIiuimi programme, it Is an Indication that the teacher In charge is not fulfilling his mi-slon us such. This Is followed by a "Course of Study for Country Schools" dcvidod into two do pailincnts, Primary and U rammer, of four years each, upon which is based tho programme mentioned. . Tliositwo features of lids book uro worth its cost to any teacher. The book ha added to it a good iiidex.so that any subject 111 the general law, constitution, forms, pro gramme, or eoursu of aiudy et.n ho easily found. Tho Mibject Instructions to School Oilicors, occupies twelve pages in nonp.iicil typo, which is full and complete, aud give a construction of each suction of the school law, and makes tho study, thurco'V 110 of interest and profit.
